So Keith Jackson of the DR has come out today and stated under no certain terms was Kenny Miller leaking stories to his newspaper. So it begs the question (s) .

Who is the rat?

Why has Miller been banished?

James2016

1.) 02 Oct 2017 08:27:23
Cos he's the leak


2.) 02 Oct 2017 09:03:12
James2016 so Keith Jackson says it wasn't Kenny so you believe him do you expect him to tell the truth that rag wouldn't know the truth if it bit him on the arse I haven't seen the story and will not read the story I ask you the question what are you reading and believing the crap printed in that rag


3.) 02 Oct 2017 09:08:58
all jackson does in the article is make himself look an idiot, he starts off bumming up celtic players then gordon strachan, then lays the blame on traynor of rangers, only covering up for miler and himself


4.) 02 Oct 2017 09:12:05
Keith's jackson is a rat anyway, don't read the record it only keeps him in a job. Every day on the way to work I bought the sun and the record but haven't in years because of the Keith jacksons if this world. I hate him and I believe no self respecting rangers fan should bother with that rag. Ignore him he will go away


5.) 02 Oct 2017 09:55:23
Keith Jackson is a poor excuse of a journalist. I wouldn't be surprised if he is trying to protect his mole. of course he would. But his anti rangers agenda is almost palpable at times. Last piece I read from him was when he likened our club to North Korea all because we introduced our own cameras for press conferences. failing to note all major clubs do this. United Barcelona Madrid Liverpool and it's designed so our management and staff can analyze our perfomrnaces in front of camera. Mr Jackson didn't like it because now we as fans can have direct access to these and he can't twist or write entirely what he likes. do not trust anything he writes I wouldn't even read him any more. His vitrol doesn't deserve oxygen.


6.) 02 Oct 2017 10:17:43
Answer is simple. Let kenny speak. I am a firm believer in 2 sides to a story. The club have spoken by their actions ( not words) so let kenny speak. Jackson says not kenny. If kenny says not me. The club may find themselves in legal difficulty if they throw around allegations they can't prove.
On the footballing front miller has been a great professional. I can't sayme using the same term with pedro.
In terms of managerial ability the jury is out. His signings so far leave a lot to be desired and his ability to constantly pick non performing players is worrying. Pens and windass can't perform more than 20 mins at best. So rather than getting knickers in a twist about what players may or not be saying get to grips with the core business. Picking a team that can pass a ball and compete for 90 mins. Now is that what rangers about. Remember pedro and s ott brown. Well look at pena v hamilton. An absolute disgrace for a man that cost €2mill+.
This in my opinion is why we have these smokescreens at ibrox. Pedro is out of his depth. Where was he managing was it Qatar?
Says it all


7.) 02 Oct 2017 10:52:18
Hunty, show us when the club has accused Kenny of being the leak? I really hope it isn't Kenny, but for too long stories have been seeping out of Ibrox.
Kenny has been a great servant for Rangers, but in truth we play better without him in the team, and whilst I'm not saying Pena is the answer, the team has a better shape about it with him in it than with Miller.


8.) 02 Oct 2017 11:47:48
Reidy. Bt sport had a pretty good go at it. Kenny now with the under 20s!
So if you read my post i don't say the club have accused him in words but by actions. Kenny hasn't played well and he isn't alone. However why the under 20s there's more in the first team that need game time. Pena windass are but 2 whi need to be able to perform for 90 mins


9.) 02 Oct 2017 13:33:15
Hunty, Pedro was managing in Qatar yes, correct.

He also won 3 titles in Mexico and reached the CONCACAF Champions League Final. But that doesn't suit your argument so we will just ignore that ae?

Considering we are in a league that recently has seen Irish teams go further in Europe than the majority of our own teams, I think you should be wary of slagging off anybodies league. (Qatar) .


10.) 02 Oct 2017 13:46:00
Plenty support for miller from the usual sources. However, what would Walter, or Souness or God forbid Barry Ferguson or McLeish have done? Ignore it? I don't think so!


11.) 02 Oct 2017 14:36:27
bil72

Ignore what?
As of yet, all he may be guilty of is questioning his authority
The leak thing is just smoke and mirrors, a few months back it was definitely Wallace - now its Miller.

As for leaks, during 9 in a row - there were numerous leaks to the press, it just so happened to be at a time when we were flying so no one cared.
Then Advocaat - a leak about the shorts being too short and tight, or the boot deals.
Under McLeish there was the Ricksen debacles that were leaked from the training ground as well.


12.) 02 Oct 2017 15:45:56
I actually can't believe that our own fans are so quick to turn on Miller over spurious rumours. This guy has been an excellant servant to our club and a model professional throughout. You may feel that he isn't the player he was and that the team play better without him. That is fine. But to brand him a Rat or to endorse unfounded rumours that do so is frankly disgusting. To me Miller is and always will be a Rangers Legend and I thank you for your service to our club over the years.


13.) 02 Oct 2017 16:45:52
I'm not saying miller WAS Anything but a great servant to Rangers. But his time has gone as a player at least.
However something has obviously went wrong somewhere and if the manager, ANY manager, doesn't deal with it, the situation will get worse.
IF miller is guilty of anything other than mouthing off, then he's toast I'm afraid.


14.) 02 Oct 2017 18:04:47
That twat Tom English also states Miller was not the leak, more than likely Miller spoke out of turn like Barton last season


15.) 02 Oct 2017 20:43:54
I fully believe there's no way it's Kenny Miller, how long have stories from inside Rangers came out, well before he came back for his third spell. Would not be surprised if it was Jim Traynor in the slightest


16.) 02 oct 2017 22:48:01
kenny has been a model pro and it would shock me if it where to come out that he was the leak but surely if we had any proof whatso ever then he would be sacked not just demoted to the unders.


17.) 03 Oct 2017 08:50:31
TheBlueBlazer I can remember Grahame Roberts being sent to play with the reserves in a friendly on Harris not London yes Harris for something that happened in the dressing room when Souness was the manager so during nine in a row players were dealt with if they stepped out of line let's just see what happened but what I will say is the team pulled together on fri night and got the job done and when the third goal went in the team ran to the manager so does that tell you a story I don't know


 

 

01 Jun 2017 14:36:21
Confirmed. Pena is in Glasgow. πŸ‡²πŸ‡½πŸ‡²πŸ‡½πŸ‡²πŸ‡½πŸ‡²πŸ‡½.

James2016

1.) 01 Jun 2017 14:50:45
Do you know if he will be announced by the club today?


2.) 01 Jun 2017 15:02:10
Naww he isnae. He is leaving Mexico as we speak, heading to Detroit and then across to Amsterdam then heading to Glasgow.


3.) 01 Jun 2017 15:17:26
that was a quick flight, he was only spotted at an airport in mexico 2hrs ago. seen he's stopping in Detriot, flying from there to Amsterdam then Amsterdam to Glasgow, so will hopefully have him announced over the weekend! things are finally looking on the up!


4.) 01 Jun 2017 15:31:31
Things starting to move fast


5.) 01 Jun 2017 16:15:39
Apologies. Picture that was sent to me was him in airport still Mexico. Jumped the gun lads. All this excitement is too much for me.


6.) 01 Jun 2017 18:54:42
a player who is been known for having a party lifestyle and he's stopping in Amsterdam haha it'll be Tuesday before he arrives in Glasgow.


7.) 01 Jun 2017 18:58:57
Never seen or heard of the guy before last week so don't know what to think although like the manager a gamble again.


8.) 01 Jun 2017 20:13:25
How many people had heard of Wanyama, Van Dijk etc before they'd signed up for that lot though? The manager knows him well and clearly thinks he's what we're missing


9.) 01 Jun 2017 20:16:51
Football wise, Pena gets good press in Mexico. He seems to enjoy himself but if he is half as good as the last two players that enjoyed a drink that it was a privilege to watch, (Baxter and Gazza), I will be one very happy bear!


 

 

21 May 2017 08:10:56
Daily record reports that jack will be announced next Sunday after the cup final and we are also looking at Patterson from hearts. I know he was out injured but wasn't he about to sign for Wigan for about 1million? Be good business if we got him for free.

James2016

1.) 21 May 2017 09:57:39
Patterson is brilliant player, would be amazing signing for free happy days! Fair play to pc for taking best talent in scotland he's obviously done his homework


2.) 21 May 2017 10:08:46
Only concern with the likes of jack and Patterson, are they players who will get us near Celtic. Very much doubt it!


3.) 21 May 2017 11:05:02
I hear you Ronnie but bringing in players to fervid closer to Celtic will cost a few million and we don't have that at the moment. But if we can bring in guys like this then there will be a sell on value that we can reinvest. There is no quick fix now with an open cheque book. Pedro has to bring in wisely, certainly a lot more wiser than MW did last season.


4.) 21 May 2017 11:14:09
RonnieR9 I suppose you want kante and dani alves instead? Jack and Patterson are good players much better than what we have this is a step in the right direction. You lot are never happy lol


5.) 21 May 2017 11:19:19
Every right not to be happy with the garbage I've been watching for the last few years. They are an improvement on the current imposters but still way short of what is required to close the gap.


6.) 21 May 2017 11:42:08
While guys like Jack and Patterson might be better than what we have, (although in Patterson's case, especially after his injury, that is debatable), we will not overtake Celtic with a team full of Scots, some of who are no more than journeymen!

To compete and to progress in Europe we need a mixture of quality overseas Internationalists and the best young Scottish players, (some of who might already be at Rangers) .

I for one will be delighted if we sign Alves and another proven centre back since that is where a lot of our problems were this season. We also need a quality midfield and I am just hoping that Pedro can bring in some real class in that department since guys like Halliday and Holt will take us no where. Up front we need a younger player in the style of Miller and a top quality winger.

If rumours are correct and McKay goes then we will need two wingers.

So let's hope that there really is Β£13m available for an influx of quality to replace the wasters that Warburton signed.


7.) 21 May 2017 11:46:57
Ryan jack is a done deal, player wants to wait till after final before announcing.


8.) 21 May 2017 13:21:28
jack and paterson will be an upgrade on what we have and already established players in this league.

celtic signed armstrong and mackay steven and the fans thought it was a wrong one too but look at armstrong for them now even though macay steven never worked out it was still good business

im concerned if the transfer budget is true that it will be partly used to pay players off to leave? i could be wrong on that one and it might be kept seperate but it will eat a bit of money up if it does.


9.) 21 May 2017 13:29:25
I totally agree with Ronnie r9


10.) 21 May 2017 17:12:50
I reckon that Jack, Rossiter, if he can stay fit and two top quality attacking midfield players, one of them with a proven goalscoring record plus two new centre backs and the young lads that played today plus a winer to replace MCKAY, (assuming that he goes), the players that remain, (assuming that it is just Crooks, Windass and Holt), and our two full backs, (not Hodson), and the young lads and Miller, Krancjar and Wilson, and we will have a good enough squad to challenge the manky mob!


11.) 21 May 2017 18:13:22
Wow, that's really going to take the shine off our treble 😯


12.) 21 May 2017 18:17:24
Does patterson mean the end of tav then? No sure a guy coming back from a near career ending injury is a better option than him


13.) 21 May 2017 18:19:10
Jack and Patterson are 1 better than what we have and 2 makes good business sense. Both already wanted and imo will only get better! So sign up for 3-4 yrs and if we wanted sell in 2-3 for a total profit that could be in the region of Β£5m combined.
In the past we have got some decent players from these Clubs and what i'd give for another home signing like Davey Robertson!


14.) 21 May 2017 18:35:38
Celtic will win the SPL by another 30 points. Rangers will be lucky to finish 4th.


15.) 21 May 2017 23:10:11
celtic will probably win the league by 15+ but i expect rangers to finish 2nd


16.) 22 May 2017 11:41:01
look in trying to catch celtic one thing is true all we need to do is be consistantly better than the rest of the spl which all of the players we have been linked with will do except lafferty.
if we are better than the rest then the campaign for the spl will be down to the old firms and if bth teams are on a winning streak then those games can go either way but if we get better than the rest celtic won't be that far in front of us points wise if at all.

seasons like that don't happen twice in a row and celtic will slip up agianst 1- or two teams next year aswell as a couple of draws.


17.) 23 May 2017 15:23:56
put it this way yes the points gap was terrible this year and money wise there is no comparison but all they did was to sign three players and the drss we beat last year turned into the invincibles so who is to say we can't do the same with a few good signings!

people on here are sooo negative and can never see the glass as half full

Morning troops. Now I'm ready for the back lash on this but if I take is mcinnes to be the new manager. First of all I'll support him just like any other Rangers manager but for me it just looks like we are happy to settle for second place. I know he has done a good job at Aberdeen and on a budget but that doesn't mean he will do a better job with a bigger budget. Think we need to be setting the bar a bit higher. Nothing against DM, I just can't see it helping us get where we want to be.

James2016

1.) 30 Oct 2017 08:46:14
Common sense says he would do a better job with a bigger budget. I think we can safely assume he wouldn't have bought one or two of Perdro's costly mistakes.


 

 

26 Oct 2017 14:55:23
All the best pedro. Thanks for your efforts.

James2016

1.) 26 Oct 2017 18:26:05
What efforts? Guy was a clown


 

 

26 Oct 2017 13:23:56
It now looks like pedros time is up. It's a shame if I'm being honest as I wanted it to work out for him but we have to face up to reality now.

So who do we want to see in charge now? Please no one say Wright or mcinnes.

Anyone think big Sam would fancy the move to Scotland? He always set out his teams to be strong and physical and we seem to be missing that.

James2016

1.) 26 Oct 2017 13:50:07
Big Sam would be an incredible appointment but he would be out of our reach IMO, salary, relocation and transfer kitty would all put Allardyce off I think, however I do think he would be tempted by the lure of Europe and I’m sure he’d back himself to mount a challenge to Celtic.

Of the Scottish contingent I would like Jack Ross at St. Mirren, I think he’s the best up and coming manager in our game and would flourish with our facilities/ budget!

Hope he gets an interview!


2.) 26 Oct 2017 14:51:40
Allardyce has said he does not want to manage at club level again.


 

 

23 Sep 2017 15:51:22
Not going to pass comment on the game. What's happened has happened. Lots of posts though wanting pedro out ( which for me is beyond belief) . But no one has mentioned who they want brought in, so come on big mouths, start naming names. First person who says mcinnes will be shot lol.

James2016

1.) 23 Sep 2017 16:24:41
James2016

Well if your happy with his record so far then it's up to you. 1 win in 4 at home in league, knocked out in first round of Europa league by the 4th best team in Luxembourg as well as 3 ridiculously easy defeats against Celtic. Under him we lie down to them and are more worried about not being hammered than trying to win the game. I'd rather have McInnes who knows what it's like to play for Rangers and knows the Scottish game


2.) 23 Sep 2017 16:37:14
Would agree with your sentiment about Pedro.

But to suggest the usual suspects like McCiness, McCleish and Tommy Wright are the only names out there to replace him, or that anyone good enough wouldn't take the job, is just as ridiculous as those wanting Pedro out after seven games.

Aitor Karanka.
Nigel Pearson.
Michael O Neill.
Slavisa Jokanovic.
Vitor Pereria.

Just throwing names out there.

Michael O Neill would be my personal choice but I'm well aware that he'd likely not come to us.

{Ed001's Note - Pearson has just taken a new job.}


3.) 23 Sep 2017 16:58:56
Sparky. I'm not pedros biggest fan but I'm willing to give him a chance. He was on a hiding to nothing last season when he came in and we should at least give him a full season to show us if he can improve the team. Ok the euro result was awful but better managers have had just as bad euro results n got over it. Our biggest problem is, we look at Celtic and think we should automatically be up there with them. We have the makings of a good squad but folk on here make me laugh by suggesting some of the new guys are duds after 10 games or so.


4.) 23 Sep 2017 17:05:32
karanka - sure he is in talks with Birmingham city.
Pearson - just took new job
O'Neil - would need to ride his bike to work
Jokanovic - isn't he the Fulham manager? So doubt he would come
Pereria- would be the same risk as pedro. No knowledge of our game.

So where does that leave us? I'm sure someone will say Tommy Wright. Yes doing a really good job at st j. I wanted us too push the boat out for FDB before pedro but look how things have turned out for him at palace.


 

 

22 Sep 2017 11:37:44
Why oh why did we not sign moult. 500k is a steal. Not just his goals but his work ethic also. Scores all kinds of different goals and links up with this around him. Really hope we re-evaluate the situation in January.

James2016

1.) 22 Sep 2017 12:16:48
I agree James. Morelos and Moult up-front sounds exciting! I'm not so keen about Walker though, I'd rather get Naismith.


2.) 22 Sep 2017 12:21:12
We were prepared to pay the asking price of all our foreign signings but somehow when it came to SPL based players they were all suddenly overpriced according to our men in charge. Obviously not.


3.) 22 Sep 2017 15:37:14
Why would we pay over inflated prices for players that we can sign on pre contracts in January, I say well done to the board, we must start realising gone are the days where we were able to flash the cash and get who we wanted and money was no object, we need to start living within our means. Anyway come on the Teddy Bears tomorrow let's get behind the team and get right in about this mob


4.) 22 Sep 2017 16:14:45
Because they are out of contract in 6 months LOL


5.) 22 Sep 2017 17:50:37
Kfraser, because they were over priced.


6.) 22 Sep 2017 19:44:32
kfraser, how do you know we paid the existing asking price for foreigners. we agreed a price which both sides were happy about. you don't know what the initial offers were etc.


7.) 22 Sep 2017 20:54:51
jimshu - if we had splashed the cash, we might still be in Europe MAKING MONEY


8.) 22 Sep 2017 21:22:53

Splash the cash and in a couple of years we might be back in the bottom division and not able to keep the lights on does that remind you of anything!

Celtic fans can't even behave themselves while in the grounds hospitality section. Fan was glassed or slashed in a 'premium section of the ground'. Best fans in the world, while the green bridage stayed away last night. Probably away solving political unrest on the Gaza Strip. πŸ€”

If true then I hope he learn some to keep his arms down. Lucky to have stayed on if you ask me. If price was right (500k) I'd bring him in as back up. Has a proven record in spl.

Matt rfc. While I agree with your comments entirely I now think that pedro is on borrowed time. Iv been in here calling for everyone to get round the team and support him I think this latest bust up with Miller is now going to be the beginning of the end for PC. Miller has been a devoted servant to the club over three parts of his career and has covered every blade of grass in every game he has featured in and if he is going to single out KM for punishment it will cause a divide among players and fans ( including myself) who hoped that Miller would stay on and become a coach to the younger players.
