Anyone know if Fraser Aird is allowed to playing for us again?


1.) 06 Jan 2017 06:55:14
I hope not

2.) 06 Jan 2017 08:36:15
He'd be better than dodoo and forrester.

3.) 06 Jan 2017 09:07:41
Frazier is absolute dross

4.) 06 Jan 2017 09:36:25
if fraser aird was outside ma house playin football i'd shut the curtains that's how much i think about him

5.) 06 Jan 2017 09:36:27
Bollocks the boy done well in the mls playing at right back, and yes he can play for us

6.) 06 Jan 2017 10:06:46
So why did they make no attempt to keep him there

7.) 06 Jan 2017 10:16:06
Coz he's mince

8.) 06 Jan 2017 11:21:32
To be honest it's that long since I saw him play I have no recollection of how good he is. Do recall he was one of the youngsters blooded in 3rd division alongside McLeod, McKay and Crawford.

9.) 06 Jan 2017 11:30:24
Colshy, do you normally have professional footballers playing outside your house? Maybe you are the guy that can get them the dream moves they aspire to. Keep them curtains open, you never know, one day you may see a superstar out there.

10.) 06 Jan 2017 11:40:26
I don't see why he couldn't be recalled to the squad. If he has actually been converted in to a RB then between him and Hodson we have good cover for that area.

11.) 06 Jan 2017 12:24:44
cuillin72 its called banter its friday hopefully your periods stop soon

12.) 06 Jan 2017 12:45:08
Well that says it all really FD does it not

13.) 06 Jan 2017 13:41:20
I know it was banter you muppet, that was why I tried to reply in kind.

14.) 07 Jan 2017 17:04:15
Colshy do we not normally wish players who have tried their best for Rangers and young lads trying to make it in the world of football good luck and our best wishes.
If the lad came back surely we would wish him good luck
Lets not forget the Rangers way.
Lets show a bit of class and up our game. Let the others slate every one and remain obsessed by all things Rangers



01 Aug 2016 19:06:21
Sources within the club (New Head of Youth Development) Creag Roberston has today revealed some interesting news surrounding new striker at the club.

The potential new striker is the experienced former international Maroune Chamakh.

Chamakh 32 years old is a player represented by Willie McKay who has previously worked with former Gers Jean-Alain Boumsong and currently Joey Barton.

My understanding is that Chamakh has been offered training facilities with a view to a one year deal if impresses.

This is one to keep tabs on.

Keep Believing #.


1.) 01 Aug 2016 19:14:38
This could work out well.

2.) 01 Aug 2016 19:16:54
Not exactly a goal machine is he. This can't be "the big one" everyone is talking about.

3.) 01 Aug 2016 19:35:45
A very humble intelligent man chamakh according to wiki. Very injury prone which is worrying.

However if can stay fit good addition.

4.) 01 Aug 2016 19:41:47
MONDIAL PROMOTION act as chamakhs agents. Willie mckay has nothing to do with them. He is however both Barton and Scott browns agent.

5.) 01 Aug 2016 20:33:19
You can't be serious the boy would demand at least 30k a week He is quite happy to be sitting on the bench earning his bread and butter!

If he was anything decent then he would've left Palace 2 year ago to play regular football

No thanks.

6.) 01 Aug 2016 21:08:48
He is a big girls blouse! Next.

7.) 01 Aug 2016 21:45:29
I've just stated that he is not represented by Willie mckay squashing this rumour and source. Also the guy has been realeased so if he's getting 30k on the brew fair play. And loic remy sits on the bench for Chelsea but you wouldn't say that about him. Read the posts before snagging someone of.
What's more with chamakhs injury record and the fact he's a free agent he'd be lucky to get a deal anywhere that's close to 20k.

8.) 01 Aug 2016 22:52:26
Lazy player and has been rotten in past seasons, not for me.

9.) 01 Aug 2016 23:36:38
How can some of you guys be happy with chamakh! He had a couple of average seasons at arsenal and that's it. hope this is a load of nonsence.

10.) 02 Aug 2016 00:22:22
He's injury prone so therefore No thanks Rangers can't afford to pay someone that much not to play!

Therefore blurryface think it's fair to say majority of people would prefer not to see this donkey collect that sort of money on around 10 games a season.

11.) 02 Aug 2016 04:13:32
marouane chamakh Is a free agent, supposedly released by crystal palace who didn't renew his contract cost arsenal £14 million pound if this rumour is true, wouldn't be bad if he plays well at his game could be a steal.

12.) 02 Aug 2016 09:23:35
think he would do well in Spl but can't see him up here, think he is a bit of a merc lads, follows the cash. think he will be one of those player thatll run down every contract for the bucks,

13.) 02 Aug 2016 09:29:18
I think a lot of fans on here forgets where waghorn came from and his goalscoring record too. some fans need to be realistic, he is free which is a bonus give a him a 1 year deal and see how he does.
i think a lot of fans on here think we have the spending power of Man City and Chelsea etc.

14.) 02 Aug 2016 11:48:12
Wasn't overwhelmed by this rumour at first, but the more I think about it the more I think he might suit our style of play. Plus he'd be a decent ariel threat in the box.

15.) 02 Aug 2016 12:04:21
This is another whopper, next.

16.) 02 Aug 2016 12:13:11
Waghorn's over rated and not a goal scorer and this is a million times more believable than RVP anyway.

17.) 02 Aug 2016 13:17:55
naw don't want has beens and he is nowhere near the calibre of barton or niko. so next please.

18.) 02 Aug 2016 18:51:43
Kazmainia82 why you having a go at me I never even said Wether I'd like chamakh or not. merely said if he can stay fit could be a good addition big if but if mw thinks he's worth a pop then I'd suggest the majority of our fans would back him.

19.) 02 Aug 2016 19:05:55
What does waghorn have to do to be considered a goal scorer, my god he's already scored 4 goals and he scored 28 last season despite being injured for 3 months, i don't get it, how many does he have to score this year.



28 Jun 2016 15:27:22
Anything on Steven Taylor?

Couple days of constant coverage - nothing in a week or 2.

Reckon it's dead in the water?


1.) 28 Jun 2016 20:45:36
More like sunk. He's too injury prone anyway.



12 Jun 2016 22:00:54
Rangers set to make a bid of around £1.5 million for Scotland's Grant Hanley.

A show of intent if the rumours are true.


1.) 12 Jun 2016 22:46:44
Waste of 1.5 million.

2.) 12 Jun 2016 23:05:17
Can't see us spending that on one player.

3.) 13 Jun 2016 01:54:35
To much money for him I feel we would get someone more mobile with pace for same or less money in my opinion he isn't worth anywhere near £1.5million.

4.) 13 Jun 2016 10:18:40
No chance,1.5 million, for Hanley, I don't think we would spend that much this season, maybe the season after, Hanley would do well up here, yeah he's slow but I just want a defender to defend first an foremost not play silky soccer.

5.) 13 Jun 2016 11:14:49
hanley is better than what we have so any improvement would be welcomed although I do think we could get better if we are going to spend money!

6.) 13 Jun 2016 11:33:50
No chance of spending that money on him.

7.) 13 Jun 2016 13:22:39
Mariappa for free would be a far better shout.

8.) 13 Jun 2016 17:32:47
Oh please don't let it be true.

9.) 13 Jun 2016 20:50:14
Would rather have Aaron Hughes!

10.) 14 Jun 2016 14:30:10
mariappa s there anything in this or still speculation at the moment.



25 May 2016 10:18:45
Morning Bears,

Hearing that Kranjcar could go through within the next few days -

Warburton's selling point seems to be the clubs vision to being back on top. (Barton mentioned in his interview) - as a last chance hurrah for players like Barton and Kranjcar why not?

And also I'm not usually one for the nonsense rumours - but there seems to be a bit of reliability in the prospect of Jozy Altidore joining us, 26 years old and looking to reinvent himself in European football - what better way than join the Rangers Revolution?


1.) 25 May 2016 10:36:41
I'm not so sure on the player rumour maybe true maybe not but for me looking at his record of goal scoring he's not prolific enough at his age he should be in prime not trying to reinvent hopefully it's not true.

2.) 25 May 2016 10:36:12
Read on his profile he has a muscle injury and return unknown. Only 2 goals in 8 games think we'd be better looking at Faendo Adi of Portland Timbers, also his tranfer price is cheaper.
Anyone got thoughts on this.

3.) 25 May 2016 11:13:53
The mls released the player wages for the whole league last week and Altidore was on about $6 million so I think we can rule that one out! On top of that he's just not very good!

4.) 25 May 2016 11:36:09
Hows that cause the report showed kaka was the highest earner on 5 million.

5.) 25 May 2016 11:55:59
Altidore is on $4.825m I seriously doubt that Altidore is a target.

6.) 25 May 2016 12:11:56
Kaka is on $7.16 mill which I'm assuming must be about £5mill if that's what a report was saying.

7.) 25 May 2016 10:58:33
Jozy altidore is on pretty high wages in the mls. He has tried Europe a few times and can't cut it. Seems happier playing in the states. But on the other hand he is a big strong boy and maybe exactly what we need but he would have to come here for less dough.

8.) 25 May 2016 14:42:55
I think if MW signs him it will be because he thinks he can get him back in to his AZ days in the Dutch league scored 39 goals there. EPL didn't really suit his style of play just cause someone is shit for them dosent mean they are completely different styles of play you don't have to be a genius to see that.

9.) 25 May 2016 14:53:36
So if he's on £5 mill a year, that means he's on £60k per week . i have my reservations about how much truth are in these figures being put forward.

10.) 25 May 2016 16:28:31
Just remember if altidore returns to Europe to try agian he knows himself his wages will drop dramatically as no English team would pay that kind of wages he is a strong striker and has the potential to be really good but I think it would be silly to go for him there is better players to be looking at.

11.) 26 May 2016 16:49:39
Toronto FC and Rangers fan here. Can confirm that Jozy is on roughly $4m usd so very unlikely that he goes to Rangers. He started the season really well (hold up play more so than goals) but his hamstrings have failed him again which seems to happen once a season at least. If fit and on lower wages he'd be a great signing for rangers but that's a big if.

Adi from Portland is a good shout though.

Sign Liam Boyce up right now.


He's scoring for fun and technically very good with both feet.

A Kris Boyd in the making.


1.) 22 Jan 2017 13:23:58
Agreed! Exactly what we need, wastes very little.

2.) 22 Jan 2017 14:30:05
I think Boyce is a great player but I would doubt a lad from the Falls area of Belfast would be keen on a move to us.
You never know though

3.) 22 Jan 2017 16:20:42
Said this in the summer and was shot down for it, the boy could a good buy for us at the minute

4.) 22 Jan 2017 16:33:40
Would score more than garner used to playing up top himself n spends most of his time in box, good shout

5.) 22 Jan 2017 18:19:26
frazer-thought we might have got past that type of reason of why a player would not play for us

6.) 22 Jan 2017 18:48:40
I would take him in a minute
What I mean is - like it or not a lot of people from where he comes from would probably give him grief if he did join us
We would probably get him at a decent cost if he did come

7.) 22 Jan 2017 21:20:31
Correct Fraser, other potential targets from a similar background have been warned if they sign for Rangers they can never go home again. How would the likes of this lad deal with that?

8.) 22 Jan 2017 21:26:59
Sign moult cracking striker showed that yesterday. Thankless task up front himself put in a shift and scored with a cracking header

9.) 23 Jan 2017 10:05:10
He scored a good goal but it was against our defence!



20 Jan 2017 10:42:52
Shoot me down.

But - I'd give Senderos a run of games to get an idea if he's worth keeping.

I accept he was honking against Celtic and Partick the following week.

But surely a guy that's played with Arsenal and AC Milan for 5 years can play a bit.

I like Hill - but he's 38 and can't continue to produce the performances throughout the season.

Maybe not - but I don't think we've seen a lot of him to judge so negatively.


1.) 20 Jan 2017 14:29:54
The guy barely played for both clubs though and at his age is getting even worse, he's a player who relied on physicality yet is built of glass. Clint Hill has shown what a player who will try his heart out can achieve



11 Jan 2017 21:27:46
What happened to Andy Murdoch?

He looked a great prospect prior to Warburtons arrival.

I know he went out on loan, would like to see him being given an opportunity soon.


1.) 11 Jan 2017 21:50:08
He is at Morton now, permanently! He is bossing it at Cappielow if I do say so myself as a Morton man.

2.) 11 Jan 2017 21:51:13
Signed for Morton, released by rangers

3.) 11 Jan 2017 21:51:48
Do you mean the Andy Murdoch that we released last August and now plays for Morton?

4.) 11 Jan 2017 21:52:52
Released and now at Morton I think

5.) 11 Jan 2017 21:54:57
He was released mate. think he's playing for Morton now

6.) 11 Jan 2017 23:43:14
He was at an age when he should have been playing regularly and wasn't getting a game. I did like him but can't really judge him for the small amout of time he played for us, maybe he just wasn't good enough to step up to the premier.

7.) 12 Jan 2017 11:29:42
If he keeps playing and progressing the way he is at Morton them don't be surprised to see him kicking about at the top end of the SPFL in a couple of years. Morton do a good job with young players e. g. Quintongo, Murdoch, Russel, O'Ware and the Celtic pair Nesbitt and Lindsay. Would like to see more of our players head down to Cappielow in the future. One of the best pitches in Scotland and a good football style.



04 Jan 2017 09:15:18
Haris Vukcic anyone?


1.) 04 Jan 2017 10:18:00
No! He was rubbish and too slow the first time and he's a ball greedy ba***rd as well.

2.) 04 Jan 2017 11:08:09
Absolute GASH.

3.) 04 Jan 2017 11:14:31
No thanks we can do without him.

4.) 04 Jan 2017 13:14:57
Decent enough in the Championship until he seemed to lose interest.

Would he help close the gap on Celtic? No, we need much better than him to help do so.

5.) 04 Jan 2017 15:29:51
I have no idea whether Vukcic could do a job for us and I agree that he would not help us close the gap on Celtic but right now I don't see us signing anyone of the quality needed to close the gap. We are expecting McParland to land us some decent inexpensive signings that will make a difference but I am not holding my breath!

With the exception of McKay, our goalkeeper and perhaps Rossiter and Crooks if they can get fit I see no one currently in the first team squad under 30 that is anything more than mediocre!

6.) 04 Jan 2017 15:55:29
Vukic? Not rubbish, but not what we need.

7.) 04 Jan 2017 17:02:01
We won't close the gap on Celtic anytime soon, it's a long road ahead, Celtic will only get stronger under Brendan Rodgers, fact.

8.) 04 Jan 2017 17:33:20
aye till the premiership comes calling, which i don't think will be as long as people think.

9.) 04 Jan 2017 20:29:26
Bgate w, nearly 2 million on garner, flop so far, 1/ 2 million on o halloran who he doesn't play, big wages on senderos who he doesn't play cost us a fortune by not handling Barton saga properly, he's had money most of which has been wasted the goalkeeper has probably been our best signing imo.



20 Dec 2016 09:26:07
Morning guys,

Couple of things for discussion.

Hearing a rumour that we could potentially back in the market for Steven Taylor who has quit the MLS.

Potentially Senderos out - Taylor in?

Also, when Rossiter is fit - do we think Halliday will remain in the side or will he drop out?


1.) 20 Dec 2016 10:36:25
Rossiter is a better player than Halliday, if he can stay fit. Halliday is not a defensive midfield player and he is not a box to box midfield player so not sure what role he could play if we have some quality in the midwifeld!

2.) 20 Dec 2016 09:41:05
I'm sure we could get a better prospect than Taylor. On halliday, just what has the boy done to be continually slaughtered. I agree he hasn't performed to level he is capable of but who has.

Over the last few games he has been superb bar the mistake that led to the goal at hamilton. He is doing all the dirty work in midfield, breaking up play and getting it forward. This is also down to Warburton changing the system too so to drop the boy now when he is starting to come onto a game would be a poor decision.

3.) 20 Dec 2016 10:59:14
Sorry mate but Taylor had his chance, so imo no thanks.

4.) 20 Dec 2016 11:17:19
Senderos out, souttar in.

5.) 20 Dec 2016 16:35:15
Bigcol1862, i myself like andy halliday and understand he's not a defensive mid player. But and here's the but mate, i actually think by going to all rangers games, i truly think he gets an easy ride from our supporters even after making mistakes, compared to tav, kiernan etc! Its because you'll hear certain bears saying, 'aye but he's a true blue'! I find this wrong to use other gers players as whipping boys and not halliday for mistakes that are being made. If he's not playing well and making mistakes then as far as i'm concerned he gets tarred with the same brush as everyone else! that's the way it should be!

6.) 21 Dec 2016 15:35:11
the whole team make mistakes that has cost us dearly at the start of the season.

imo I think there are maybe 3 players we need to replace with better quality both cb positions could be massively improved and a left footed L/ Winger.

how long has Weiss got on him contract with that mob he plays with just now. i'd definitely like to see him back with him on one side and McKay on the other they would run a mock with defences.

I used play alongside Creag whilst he was at Stirling University - and then coach his under 12 side at Forth Valley.

Top guy and really good at his job.

Onwards and upwards. 👍.

That's the article - I was wondering if Rangers may have a go at manufacturing their own jerseys, a bit similar to what Manchester United did in 2009/ 10.

Supporters took the stance over either buying old kits or wearing Newton Heath colours.

Idea is Bit of the wall I know - but if old/ retro kits were made available might be an idea.

The likes of Barton and Kranjcar would be sensational signings for Rangers at this stage in our revival.

Let's not forget - that only 1-2 years ago, we had boys like Ian Black running about Ibrox thinking he was something. Not only that - we were being linked with recruiting players like Ali Crawford and Kevin McHattie when McCall was in charge.

We've come a long way in a short space of time - and to be linked with players of their calibre it can only be viewed as a huge positive in terms of what's going on in the background with King and co also.

I agree with Danny Wilson being our best ball-playing centre half.
He offers a different dimension from Hill/ Senderos.

I think he still has a bit to go defensively - aerially he gets beaten far too often and can be lackadaisical.

Hill will start the Old firm alongside Kiernan and Wilson will play LB if Lee Wallace is unavailable.
