I am a Celtic supporter. Very sorry to hear about the bus crash and the guy who lost his life. Brings any football game into perspective so whilst we can be at the wind up most of the time, which we all are, I would like to pass my condolences onto the family and hope that there are no more deaths as a result of this crash. So to the Bear who passed away sleep well son, today was never ment to end like this.

Very fitting heartfelt post johnnymac which puts football in the complete shade no matter which team you support! My condolences to the family and friends of the gentleman who so very sadly lost his life in the rangers supporters bus crash today, nobody deserves to go to a football game and never return home! God bless! Pray and hope everyone else who were injured today make a full recovery.

I would also like to pay respects to all who suffered a loss or injury to loved ones. And to every football comrade who have more love for the game and supporters of our great game; than any horribly outdated feeling of anger and dislike for others. RIP.

What a load of rubbish. Listen Rangers fans get real now. DeBoer or any other quality manager is not arriving at Ibrox. End of season king and Warburton and Weir will go. Parks will take over as Chairman. No investment will live off income. So just start to accept its a long way back. Liquidation does this to you.

Rangers will lose around £4 mill this year and if there is no european football next year they will lose at least the same amount again next season. If better players come in there are transfer fees, higher wages, more money for a new manager, infrastructure, better scouting etc. Rangers are going to need to rethink the entire business model. Its a busted flush

Camoo spurs bought him for £23 mill. He is on £75k a week. Rangers won't spend any money in this transfer window. They need another £2mill loan to get through the season so that takes loans to around £12 mill. So Rangers fans now expect more loans so they can buy more players? that's how clubs go bust (again) . Next time there us no way back so Rangers can only spend what they can generate same as every other club in Scotland. No pne is being bought. Free transfers and loans only.

He will only leave if someone offers him a contract. Rangers will be happy to get him off the wage bill but unless someone offers him £20k a week he is entitled to stay.

Barton will train with the youth team and on his own. As no resolutiin to the disagreement is in place, Rangers want Barton out but he won't go on the terms offered by Rangers. Now the tactic is to bring him into training. Next statement will be he needs to train with youths to get his fitness up but it's a way of making it difficult forcing him to stay. He has to comply with whatever Rangers instruct him to do or he is in breach of contract. He will never kick another ball in the first team.

This is what happened:

Warburtons agent approached Forrest. Warburton is highly thought of in England. Warburton had not spoken to King in over a month. He knew King wanted him out and he wanted out. (Stepping stone for England, yes it is for every manager and player in the SPL) So Forest say yes we are interested but we can't afford compensation.

Agent goes to Rangers and asks, if Warburton leaves for another job can both sides walk away from the contract. Warburton had 2 years remaining so if Rangers sacked him it costs 2 years money. The board said yes why not. Rangers are happy as no pay off. Forest happy no compensation.

Agent went to Forest said Warburton would come but he wanted to bring his back room staff. Forest then had to pay off the contracts of their backroom staff so they said leave it till summer and we will talk again. Forest are also skint.

Agent goes back to the board, Rangers think, no we are happy with the agreement and without telling the agent, they announce the dismissal on grounds that he resigned. There was no signed resignation.

It was agreed by Rangers that they would let him go. So now it's up to the lawyers if that request counts as resignation. You can resign verbally, you can be sacked verbally. Paper work can follow. The question is, if the above scenario is a resignation or not. Over to the lawyers. It's not cut and dried on any side.

Any employed and decent manager is going to cost a minimum of £ 1million. Gary monk at leeds. No chance. Why would he leave leeds who are chasing promotion to the premier league come?

Warburton and co will get compensation. Its only about how much so thete is maybe £500k or more already so King is going to go for an unemployed manager. No high profile manager will come to Rangers with all the uncertainty around the club. Ashley still in legal case. No transfer funds. Warburton exit.

King in South Africa with £17 mill in loans needing to be repaid at end of 2017 and probably more loans required. Definitely more required if funds are going to be available for transfers. How is this ever going to be resolved? Rangers are getting further in debt every year.

Whom ever is the manager, the latest statement from King needs to be understood.

He claims £18 mill of the £30 mill he promised as investment has already been spent. His £30 mill investment is not in buying players, its in running all aspects of the club. Furthermore, that £30 mill includes all revenues generated by the club, so he is not talking about putting in £30 mill of his own money, he is talking about £30 mill from season tickets, loans etc. So how much is a new manager going to get to spend on players? Not a lot. So no matter who comes in, its going to be a long road back.

Tomusa, people will never know what is going on behind the scene at Rangers. Think its clear there is no direction from King and co. If you are rebuilding a football club that has been as poorly run as Rangers you can't do it from Africa.

You need to get your feet under the desk and work with the management team. Does anyone think King is going to give a new manager £10 million or so to spend on players when he is in an office 5000 miles away? Its crazy.

King has got Rangers, but has no clue as to what to do with it. He needs to appoint a permanent manager now because there should be europa league qualifiers coming up in june so he needs to invest in players and have a manager in place.

But what he will do is appoint McLeish till end of season. King will do as little as possible till all the court cases are resolved and Ashley deal is terminated so that's about 4 years away. Now there may be a further court case with Warburton and co? You could not make it up

At the end of the day any decent manager with pedigree is going to want cash availble to buy players plus he will want a couple of mill a year himself. Rangers can't do that because at the end of the day the best they can do is come sevond so from a business point of view why would king do that? So its either mciness or another scottish manager or a young up and coming manager like ronnie delia and look whst happened there? Untill supporters start to accept that 2nd is all that's there and get off the managers back then this conversation will happen again next year.
