I fear the Stewart Robertson interview was all a front. I hope I'm wrong - but Graeme Murty potentially until the end of the season?
That's asking for trouble.

There's been far too much distrust and dishonesty in the last 5/6 years and whilst I understand Kings comments about classified info remaining behind closed doors - if they are serious about where they envisage seeing us next season then we must act NOW and appoint a manager who will ensure a 2nd place finish.

From that point onwards look to appoint a manager who demands respect from the media (De Boer, Mcleish) .

For me - the Scottish media got under warburton's skin, and it began to unravel from there. We need a manager who has an aura about him to reintroduce that fear factor.

These comments about De Boer and mcleish are easy to write and say but if we are to truly believe them - we need King and co. to act now and appoint a new gaffer.


1.) 16 Feb 2017 12:44:38
We won't make any cash from getting beat in the Europa League Qualifiers so who cares if we finish 6th! I'd let Murty have a chance as at least it's a cheap option!

2.) 16 Feb 2017 13:17:27
Would say Eck is mixed at talent spotting.

3.) 16 Feb 2017 14:23:14
Big eck couldnae spot talent up the dancing

4.) 16 Feb 2017 13:40:49
yes mostly bad at spotting tallent but he did bring in thomas buffel and ovcourse nacho novo so not all bad and i'd prefer mcleish to murty for the rest of the season .

also having a director of football would that not put off the likes of de boer as i'm sure he would like to have final say on who he signs if he comes in plus i don't think that whoever comes in will get an money at all so i doubt we will get de boer.

5.) 16 Feb 2017 15:45:22
As good a player as buffel was didn't he spend as much time on the treatment table as he did on the park and it doesn't take a genius to recognize that if a player scored a barrow load for Dundee they will score a barrow load for rangers who especially then created a hell of a lot more chances.

6.) 17 Feb 2017 16:24:36
Unless funds are available to buy a new defence, it won't matter who the manager is.



31 Jan 2017 13:43:23
Rangers target out of favour Newcastle Centre-Half Grant Hanley.


1.) 31 Jan 2017 13:52:58
Thought Hanley was going to wolves besides can't see any business being dun between us and Ashley.

2.) 31 Jan 2017 13:57:37
Good move, not the best but better than we have

3.) 31 Jan 2017 14:02:44
Warburton quoted as saying all business is done.

4.) 31 Jan 2017 17:07:56
I've just heard that podolski has been spoke to by rangers

5.) 31 Jan 2017 17:19:56
MW actually said that all business has been done unless someone becomes available that represents value. I expect one more acquisition to our ranks.

6.) 31 Jan 2017 17:52:55
Podolski, aye ok come to Rangers for 10 grand or go to China for 300000 a week. Behave

7.) 31 Jan 2017 22:26:46
Hanley, oh please no!

8.) 31 Jan 2017 20:26:46
Hanley, oh please no!



06 Jan 2017 01:00:12
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.

Mcleish until the end of season will see us finish 2nd - but it won't be easy.
But that'll be based on pure old school tactics, grinding at 1-0's etc.

Now don't get me wrong Warburtons teams weren't capable of that this season so far but we are up and around that 2nd place area just now.


1.) 13 Feb 2017 15:26:34
I'd rather play good football and finish 3rd than play head tennis for 2nd. Plus, we can't play a physical game with Hyndman, Holt and the rest so why not play just continue trying to play football?

2.) 13 Feb 2017 20:35:13
Hopefully we do not go back to the old dull defensive stuff we witnessed under smith and Mcleish, our defense has been shocking but some of our passing play was great to watch, I'm sad it never worked out for MW but the club moves on and hopefully we can get the next management appointment right that can play a blend of football that can keep the back door closed.



31 Jan 2017 09:20:27
£250,000 would be money well spent on Liam Boyce.

Sell O'Halloran now take the £200,000 and sign Sam Nicholson for a development fee.

Back 4/ 5 will be the same for remainder of season.


1.) 31 Jan 2017 10:58:37
Get nicholson and keep ohalloran. Would Boyce really improve the team?

2.) 31 Jan 2017 11:57:38
Boyce would laugh at yous

3.) 31 Jan 2017 13:47:41
Aye he laughs at the quotes for dembele when he has more spl goals than him in less games hahahahhaa

4.) 31 Jan 2017 15:33:19
Like the way wee laugh at yous cee when yous go from crisis to crisis loans lmfao

5.) 31 Jan 2017 16:14:22
the back four aren't the problem we need at least one quality cb and for me none of our guys cut it .

big clint is solid but too slow sederos is well past his sell by date and stealing a wage.

Wilson hasn't lived up to potential and actually looks lazy on the pitch imo,
Kiernan. awfull.

id like to see these guys upping their game especially Wilson as we all know he can do a lot lot better

6.) 31 Jan 2017 17:01:37
The same Dembele who has scored more goals against your club than your star striker (take your pick of which one out the 3 that is btw) has scored for your club all season? hahahaaa



22 Jan 2017 12:55:46
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!

10.) 23 Jan 2017 12:00:21
We all have our opinions guys, but i think motherwell striker louis moult is a better striker than ross county striker liam boyce! Just my own personal opinion! So i'd rather rangers went for moult than boyce!

11.) 23 Jan 2017 14:54:14
The way warburton uses his No9s i can't see any of them being a 30 goal a season man no matter who he brings in



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.

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.
