Confirmed. Pena is in Glasgow. 🇲🇽🇲🇽🇲🇽🇲🇽.

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 £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 £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

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
Ritchie2
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!


 

 

28 Aug 2017 18:57:44
Surely 500k for moult is worth a go. His goal at the weekend is worth it alone. I know one swallow doesn't make a summer but he is tried and tested in the PL and would give us another option up top.

James2016

1.) 28 Aug 2017 19:55:59
Couldn't agree more has scored a few goals in the league and gave the Celtic defence all sorts of problems last season. At £500k not much of a risk


2.) 28 Aug 2017 20:19:06
I think Moult is a no brainer. Him and Morelos up front would be a great combo


3.) 28 Aug 2017 20:20:37
agree 100% bears 500k for moult is a no brainer

he's a proven goal scorer, still young and he attacks crosses in the box and would give us another physical option with goals in case herrera doesn't get up to speed or if morelos got injured

wonder if levein's appointment as manager will allow walker to move now. CL knows more than most walker won't sign a new deal and can sign a pre-contract in Jan so surely accepting 600k would make sense


4.) 29 Aug 2017 01:01:31
Agree James, cadden would be useful as competition for candies also.


5.) 30 Aug 2017 08:58:40
IMO all of Pedros signings other than Dalcio and Pena have shown promise.
Cardoso looks like a solid CH who can only get better. Candieas is providing and Herrera got off the mark against County and hopefully he will kick on.
Dorrans. Jack. Morelos. Alves. All have pass marks and I think the more this Team play the better they will get. We just need to find the formation that suits the Team being fielded.
Think that bringing Walker in will really strengthen the Left Wing and also having another Player who like Dorrans and Jack knows what its all about playing for this Club. I honestly think that we will see his form improve at Rangers.


6.) 30 Aug 2017 15:01:20
If we never wasted nearly 5mil (approx) on herrera and pena we could have walker moult mclean naismith. We would be in a much better position as a team. Just think pena and krancjar are supposed to be our midfield playmakers, can't get 90 mins between them. Granted herrera scored against the bottom side but I remember sebo scored against chelsea. Just saying


7.) 30 Aug 2017 15:45:13
I think moult has nadir ciftci written all over him


 

 

22 Aug 2017 10:11:50
Been reading a few posts regarding former players and loan players scoring for fun at other clubs. I think the explanation for this is fairly simple. When you play for rangers or Celtic for that matter, teams line up in such a way that they are ultimately parking the bus and making it difficult for forward players to get space etc. Now these players have moved to clubs that don't get treated the same way the the formations and tactics are maybe more on an even keel they are getting more room, space and obviously more chances.

Further to all of that, McKay didn't want to sign a new deal and we would've lost him for nothing.

Ohalloran needs to find his confidence against and the 6 month loan deal may benefit us in the long term

Waghorn - I think most fans wanted rid of him

Garner - personally a would have kept him and gave him a run in pedros team and 442 formation

And just to finish off, mr keevins said on the open line last night, there was no protests at ibrox when we sold any of the above. Just grumblings about how they have all started at their new clubs.

All just my opinion for what it's worth.

James2016

1.) 22 Aug 2017 11:26:24
Totally agree these players had ample opportunity at Ibrox and for various reasons couldn't deliver 👍


 

 

12 Aug 2017 18:20:07
Wasn't at the game or seen anything so I can't pass comment on red card etc but these are the games we not only want to win but need to win them so we can mount a credible challenge this season, wether folk see that as first of second place. Our biggest problem as rangers fans is patience, we don't have any. We expect to hit the ground running and demolish teams especially at ibrox. Defence wa sour biggest concern from last season and if we lost three goals at home today it is still our biggest concern.

James2016

1.) 12 Aug 2017 19:15:16
Never a red card.


2.) 12 Aug 2017 19:25:55
I don't buy into this Rangers fans lack patience tag. Thrown into effectively division 4, a Championship year failure and a premier league return last season not exactly covered in glory. As a fan base used to winning I agree it's tough going and I understand the fans' frustration and anger at times like this. If anything our patience has been tested to the limit and we've passed the test.


3.) 12 Aug 2017 20:05:24
I am starting to get frustrated at people saying defense was and still is our biggest problem. It our lack of goal that cost us last season, look at the flipping statistics. We are always going to concede goals every team does but to win a game you just have to score more than the opposition. Last season because we only scored 1 or 2 goals per game if lucky then there would be a good chance of a late draw or loosing in the second half. This year we need to up the anti and score a minimum of 2 goals per game to reduce that probability of late draw. If we keep scoring the result will come. IMO we are not at full strength yet. 2 more to come. All league wining teams always manage to score no matter what, that's where we failed last year and this year we have so far scored - trust the stats and the results will come. Celtics wave of dominance will break soon as I've said before all teams look better and once Celtic get beat once then after that more defeats will follow at a more natural losing rate. It will happen, I guarantee it. Trust the maths man.


4.) 12 Aug 2017 20:22:18
Tjbb. It's all about opinions and as I said I wasn't there today but to lose three at home says to me there are still defensive issues. I'll support pedro and the team till the end but we keep going on about signing walker mclean Naismith etc but if we make ourselves hard to score against I'll take 1-0 victories all day long.


5.) 12 Aug 2017 21:43:47
I respect your analysis but it doesn't hold up to scrutiny. With a good knowledge of maths and probability then I must try and give positively to the support. If you show me a team that's won on average 1-0 and won the title then I will eat my words. As a scientist I understand probability, you can't beat probability unless you have messi in the team.

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. 🤔

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.

There's pictures of elbow incident on DR online. There is a bit of contact but from what I can see of the stills it's a bit soft if u ask me. Hate brown but looks like his arm is up for balance and to block not to harm anyone but again it's only stills of the incident.

Hypothetically if we appointed mcinnes or Wright instead of pedro and still found ourselves in this position what would we be saying? No doubt we would have accused the board of going for a cheap option bla bla bla. Can we stop shouting for sir Walter, we need stability at our club and not end up like Celtic if the late 80's early 90's. Celtic r miles in front n swapping managers every 6-12 months isn't going to claw that back.
