£2 million bid and Cummings is our man.

Would like to see Martin til end of season and one other. 👍


1.) 12 Jan 2018 02:10:34
We won't bid £2mil for Cummings.

2.) 12 Jan 2018 02:20:31
£2million haha seriously. People need to wake up and smell the coffee. The only decent players we will attract are rangers minded and willing to make financial sacrifices compared to what they could be picking up weekly. Getting rid of some high earners and getting the share issue cash might lead to some cash going out on transfers.

3.) 12 Jan 2018 02:39:41
He's not worth 2m I don't think

4.) 12 Jan 2018 02:44:05
Why should We pay 2 million for Cummings when Forrest Only paid 1 million just 5/ 6 months ago and Can't get a game? makes NO sense give them the 1million they paid Hibs no more, i would love him at Ibrox but £1 Million take it or leave it.

5.) 12 Jan 2018 06:04:51
IF and a BIG IF, we have any money, offer what they offered for McKay.

6.) 12 Jan 2018 13:04:27
Well we paid £5m for pena&herrera so anythings possible

7.) 12 Jan 2018 14:54:08
2 million, try 500k and I would think about it - bang average.



12 Dec 2017 14:51:11
Think the board will move for Alex Neil in January.

Currently on a 12 month rolling contract at Preston so wouldn't cost a lot of compensation.

He fits the criteria of having knowledge of Scottish and British football whilst being young and ambitious.
Seems like a very confident gaffer with a very decent track record given he's only 36 years old.

20/1 with the bookies currently, certainly worth a fiver.


1.) 12 Dec 2017 16:12:29
He's been scathing of us in the past as his loyalties apparently lie elsewhere in Glasgow. Just saying before the offended brigade come on and slaughter me. lol

2.) 12 Dec 2017 16:19:00
Be good but looks like he's loving life at Preston and has lined up Moult for January so can’t see him wanting to come.

3.) 12 Dec 2017 16:41:43
Potter and Reid it should be. Reid has experience of Scottish game and is a Rangers man. Also developed young players like McCarthy and McArthur at Hamilton and sold them for a great profit

4.) 12 Dec 2017 20:01:27
And exactly Wat has Alec Neil actually done?

5.) 13 Dec 2017 08:03:20
Seeker, it doesn't worry me if the pc brigade complain, this appointment would be absolutely against the grain. He's an out and out person who has decried us in the past. He's never a candidate for Rangers manager, and that's as it should be.

6.) 13 Dec 2017 08:04:39
I don’t care where anyone’s loyalties used to lie. If that person can put us back on top where we belong I would take anyone



06 Nov 2017 08:22:13
If it's a choice between McInnes and McClaren - then its an absolute no brainer.

Mcinness every day of the week. Why risk bringing in a washed out manager who is a well renowned joke figure across world football?

Has to be McInness.


1.) 06 Nov 2017 09:09:54
Totally with you here, JorgeTheHammer! Steve mcClaren is outdated and a dinosaur in the manager/ coaching world of football! Would be a disastrous appointment! What's our board thinking of?

2.) 06 Nov 2017 10:25:30
yes but allen will prefer and engish manager over mcinnes and that's what scares me if they bring in the washed out mclaren then we may be finnished as a club



01 Jun 2017 12:48:21
Afternoon fellow teds,

I'm no fairytale story teller - Vladimir Weiss is on his way to the Famous.

He's boarding a flight today to head home to Slovakia before flying into Glasgow at the weekend.

Believe Pedro has been in direct contact with our Vlad since April.

The wee man is chomping at the bit to return.

Behind the scenes, things are going quietly and deals are being done.

A welcome break from the nonsense we've had in previous transfer windows.



1.) 01 Jun 2017 13:06:19
Weiss is currently in Slovakia on Holiday, been there for a week now.

2.) 01 Jun 2017 13:10:51
Here's hoping. I wasn't surprised a source at the club denied interest after his twitter post. I much prefer keeping transfer info behind closed doors until completion.

3.) 01 Jun 2017 13:12:37
Fingers crossed

4.) 01 Jun 2017 13:17:42
Well that's BS because the flight he got on last week when everyone thought he was flying to Edinburgh was a flight to Slovak.

His flight today was leaving Slovak. Easy to tell when you see the location stamp on his tweet this morning.

He may well sign for us, I doubt it though but either way your story is incorrect so please try again later.

5.) 01 Jun 2017 14:24:46
I'm not sure this is true. Also note that any real fan would now Albertz was Jorg! not Jorge!



15 Apr 2017 00:32:20
I know the papers reported back in January that Rangers were interested in signing Hearts Sam Nicholson on a pre-contract?

Having looked into it, it would appear he is yet to extend his stay beyond the summer?

Absolute no brainer for me if he's available on a free, great young talent.



1.) 15 Apr 2017 08:32:28
Yip! No brained, the lad would definitely add a bit of flair to the team

2.) 15 Apr 2017 22:47:52
Depends if pedro is keeping an eye on the young scottish talent but i assume he is if we're linked to jack.

3.) 15 Apr 2017 22:50:27
What position does Nicholson play again?

4.) 16 Apr 2017 09:17:53
What's his position again?

5.) 16 Apr 2017 13:54:36
No thanks! He is too injury prone for my liking no more risks please and that's a big risk and Andy1872 he normally plays on the wing as a winger or in wide midfield if playing a more defensive system like they did against us with 5 in midfield.

Michael O'Halloran is way above his station.
Aye you can be billy big boy running about in Perth every weekend when the shackles are off but he's had over a year to prove himself at Rangers and he hasn't done it.

Now he's decided to take the moral high ground and have a dig in the papers after scoring a couple goals - never Rangers class.

May be the unpopular opinion but for me the place is better off without playboy characters like O'Halloran, Forester and Kiernan.


1.) 06 Sep 2017 04:42:35
Spot on mate. He's got pace but that's it. Easy enough scoring a few goals running on to things for st Johnstone against teams that are a wee bit more open but at rangers he had has his fair share of chances against teams who sit back and try to catch us on the break. Not good enough simple as that.

2.) 06 Sep 2017 08:44:21

Playboy characters? I've not heard anything like that about either 3 you mention. Where exactly is your source for this? He has just responded to the fact that the manager went public in the paper and slagged him off. I don't think we are currently in a position to turn our noses up at any player who is currently playing well and scoring in the league. You criticise him for not scoring then you criticise him for scoring! Very balanced view you have

3.) 06 Sep 2017 09:05:03
dont think Jorge is criticising him for scoring goals tbh. more for his attitude, an attitude he most likely displayed at the club and affected the dressing room with. players don't get banished and turned out so hard unless there are serious issues. he represents all that was wrong with our club, average player, taking a wage and giving it big licks that he was a big shot rangers player without putting in the work and due care our great club deserves

4.) 06 Sep 2017 09:36:23
I agree with sparky he had to come out and defend himself at some point, although in my opinion MOH had enough chances to impress and for me he never really took them and Rangers was far to big a step for him like most of warburtons signings, but that's just my opinion 🇬🇧

5.) 06 Sep 2017 10:07:24
Agree Jack Union. MOH might well not be Rangers class but PC was classless in openly slagging him off.

In fact, is PC Rangers class is the more important question.

6.) 06 Sep 2017 11:31:17
How is he, the guy is stating his experiences with pedro and so would I being treated like that.

7.) 06 Sep 2017 11:37:44
mnager didn't slag him off people listen to what he said .
he said MOH isn't his type of player and that is okay bacause while he was still here all you people that want him back said he was a waste of money i don't remember last season more than one or two wanting him to get game time but now he is scoring for them he is a legend again get a grip guys

8.) 06 Sep 2017 11:53:20
exactly. the mess we were in last year and folk that slated the dross then are pining for MOH, hill and all the other has beens

9.) 06 Sep 2017 12:22:26
Peds no one said he was a legend aye he's scoring goals that's great, i'm on about his first hand experience with PC. don't worry when he gets the boot I will be the first to remind you how much you hung out his farter.

10.) 06 Sep 2017 13:42:05
Michael O'Halloran, The Scottish premier Player Of The Month, should still be at Ibrox scoring goals. It's a pity Caixinha couldn't get the best out of him the way that Tommy Wright Is doing at St. Johnstone. The decision To Let him go is Just one Of The Many Mistakes that he's Made.

Surely he can't Continue with embarrassing Himself and rangers, When Almost all the players he let go are banging in the goals right, left and centre every week, yet his £2.2 million signing Carlos Pena can't get a game, What on earth Is that all about? For me Pedro's time is up. surely he's got to go, and the sooner the better.

11.) 06 Sep 2017 14:36:45
Im not a big fan of MOH but i think he's entitled to have a go after the way Pedro publicly put him out to dry

12.) 06 Sep 2017 16:25:07
the way he hung the club out to dry refusing to play for the reserves?

13.) 06 Sep 2017 17:05:15
Wasn't good enough to cut it at rangers so that's all that needs to be said about him. If he want to run his trap in the papers so be it but at the end of the day we where and still are paying him a very good amount of money for sweet F all so definitely agree with PC on this one!

14.) 06 Sep 2017 17:07:47
MOH Is not good enough for rangers and we should be working to move him on. Pedro should not have said on such blunt terms he has no future at Ibrox, makes Pedro appear unprofessional.

15.) 07 Sep 2017 05:49:11
Pedro badly mishandled this one. Simple as daaa

16.) 07 Sep 2017 08:48:57

Can you explain the term giving it big licks? What exactly are you referring to?

17.) 07 Sep 2017 11:44:51
Perdu is a poor man's Mourinho. It's fine coming out before a game stating how an opponent are going to set up and play so long as you don't then get gubbed. If you can't walk the walk etc. and Perdu can't walk the walk. His dealing with the O'Halloran is arrogant and has probably lost the club money in what they can get for him when he is sold on.

18.) 07 Sep 2017 11:40:00
@easypeasy - the last 2 managers couldn't get the best out of these players, the same players who were criticised by plenty on here. He's turned Windass around who was poor last season but is doing better this season but no praise for Pedro on this matter.

19.) 07 Sep 2017 12:21:52
easypeasy you don't half talk some phish bhoy. If MOH had been scoring regularly at Rangers, he'd still be there, and your desperate banging on about Pedro having to go, leads me to believe you're a bit feart he's going to be a success.

20.) 07 Sep 2017 12:31:52
Miller has come out in today's press defending Pedro's training methods so MOH is talking Tom Kite! Or are some on here with an agenda against the manager still going to believe the imposter that is is MOH?

21.) 07 Sep 2017 14:39:47
Union, don't be so naive. People sometimes don't tell the truth. Do you really believe that Miller would say anything other than that while he is involved in the team. What do you think would have happened if he had said the opposite? A big cuddle from Perdu or a cold shoulder?
I don't know whether Perdu's training methods are good or bad, but I wouldn't take a comment from a player involved in the squad as being FACT.

22.) 07 Sep 2017 15:36:32
Why do you keep calling him Perdu?

23.) 08 Sep 2017 11:40:46
Because I think he is a lost soul in the Ibrox spotlight.

24.) 10 Sep 2017 08:48:37
@STYAB- and yet you are naive enough to take the word of a player kicked out the squad for not being good enough?



22 Aug 2017 17:29:51
Growing increasingly frustrated with Caixinha to be honest Bears, yet to see what kind of system he's trying to play.

Think we have good personnel within certain areas of the team - but struggle to have any idea of what they are trying to do.

Under Warburton we knew what we were getting - play out from the back and pass pass pass. no cutting edge.

Was at the Hearts game at the weekend and it was a carbon copy of last season under Warbs.

Looked at the Ratio of meaningful games we've lost under Pedro and it's worrying (including Old Firm humiliation, European humiliation, Aberdeen, Hibs etc) .

I do like the guy and think he talks a very good game, but if he doesn't WIN against Ross County this weekend then I'm afraid the managers position will need looked at once again.




13 Jun 2017 13:05:19
Here's one fellow Teds,

If McKay is stalling on a new deal and is keen to leave.

Would you take the £2-3 million and buy the unsettled Jamie Walker?

Arguably Walker very bit as good if not better?


{Ed039's Note - what £2-3m? The figure being put around for him is £750k-£1m)

1.) 13 Jun 2017 13:27:32
Jorge, who is going to pay that for McKay on the back of last seasons performances, I'll tell you probably NO ONE



09 May 2017 23:20:32
Alright bears,

There's been a lot of coverage on the weekends game and a lot negativity and criticism towards Rangers and Caixinha.

Particularly from folk like Graham Spiers, Tom English and Keith Jackson.
These guys are out to witchhunt Rangers for years to come - Walter didn't allow it because he commanded respect.

Don't fall into the trap of listening to their constant questioning and negativity.

I concede the football and style of play under Caixinha hasn't been pleasing on the eye but he's winning games and getting positive results (excluding old firm) .

Give the guy time to get his own players in this summer who can execute his style and methods of play.

We bemoaned the lack of directness under warburton with passes. So let's enjoy the rest of the season while we can and look forward to European football with new players next season.


1.) 10 May 2017 08:41:29
Do you not think a lot of the criticism is merited? Being hammered twice by Celtic without a whimper is totally unacceptable. The team were a complete shambles those 2 games with no shape, no direction and worst of all no fight. We weren't much better against Thistle and were extremely lucky to win. The constant picking of Waghorn is a total mystery too as he does nothing and is a complete waste of a jersey.

2.) 10 May 2017 10:02:54
Very true, but it's nothing new. just I just don't listen to radio Scotland now or buy newspapers. In the past I used to buy the sun and record on my way to work. it wasn't the slagging the team, but the constant coverage of the clubs troubles. it was the same stuff over and over. it just shows how boring and insignificant the rest of Scottish football are. Plus any organisation that gives mark daly a platform really is not going to get my backing. Just ignore them they mean nothing to us.

3.) 10 May 2017 11:29:05
why weren't Waghorn and Garner called in for extra training a 6am today? That's what I want to know.

4.) 10 May 2017 16:34:57
Maybe they already work their socks off in training, and are in fact, just single fish.

5.) 10 May 2017 17:26:36
And Windass

6.) 10 May 2017 18:25:15
By the looks of Waghorn in nog sure he trains at all. Just guzzles fish suppers all day long. Probably had one once he was hooked after 57 mins on Sunday

7.) 11 May 2017 01:35:40
Garner's problem is that he tries too hard because he genuinely wants to be a success at the club. Whether he will be is another story. Waghorn is just not good enough just the same as Halliday, Kiernan and a number of the others currently on our books. There are enough decent quality players to be squad players but what is lacking is probably six top notch players for the starting eleven.

Hopefully we will secure this level of quality from Pedro's list and they will all be totally committed to the cause!



26 Feb 2017 12:26:24
Disgusted with the players, disgusted with the boards lackadaisical approach to appointing a new manager.

Dundee and Inverness are 6 points that could've gone a long way to gaining 2nd at the end of the season.

If we had a new gaffer in at this point I'm sure players would've reacted and we could've taken full point or 4 points from these games.

Instead we've sat back and let it happen, let out club be laughed at once again.

Get a grip and appoint a manager to install leadership within that current crop of players til the end of season.

Disgraceful lack of cohesion and direction from top to bottom.

Act now before it's too late.


1.) 26 Feb 2017 12:43:05
We have a board that doesn't act quick enough and make us a laughing stock we have players that can't play without a manager we had a manager in warbarton who bought or got players that would add value on and off the pitch am struggling to name any that's added value that he brought in really what is next for us

2.) 26 Feb 2017 14:00:55
Absolute Bollocks!

The club had no advanced warning that MW intended to bail out - if we want the best possible manager we have to go out and look for the best that might be available (and interested in joining us) .

Do you really think there are a load of top class managers out there just waiting for a contract to be sent for signing?

These things take time.2 weeks is nothing

3.) 26 Feb 2017 14:29:36
What players that warbarton has brought in have added value 20 months and no spl class player brought in with a resale value

4.) 26 Feb 2017 16:41:54
The board cannot win in this situation, as a supporter I hope the next appointment is a successful one, but the board do not have a crystal ball there is no guarantee whoever it is. I pray it is not Barry Ferguson, a winner, yeah right check the stats . Celtic took a punt with BR, at the moment it looks as if it has worked out but it, s hard to raelly gauge as the competition is so poor. Garry Rowet would be a bit of a gamble but surely our luck must change sooner or later. Mark Warburton may well go on to be successful elsewhere but too many poor decisions blighted his time at Rangers . we are all desperate to see real improvement on the pitch it's been 2 years of losing soft goals and missing chances . I stay optimistic, we will get back to where we belong it's just that the road is a bit rocky along the way, and when we do How sweet it will taste.

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.

Bruno Alves is an absolute class act.

Some folk need to wisen up, he made one poor mistake against Hibs - but was the rock and core of our defensive unit in the second half.

Do people just think it’s a coincidence that Danny Wilson has all of a sudden started playing well?

Bruno gives all the others around him the platform to perform as a result of his composure and communication.

Idiotic of some folk to suggest we’re better off without him.

Away and finger some trees.

Bruno is our best centre halves in years and that includes the years of Dorin Goian etc.

Rock solid and classy on the ball.

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.
