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.

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!

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.

Thoughts?

JorgeTheHammer

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.

What we must understand is that our team/ squad simply do not have the winning mentality required at Glasgow Rangers.

The only thing that can possibly change that until the end of season is bringing in Alex Mcleish.

Billy Davies will not change that, nor will Tommy Wright or anyone of that calibre.

The board need to get their finger out and employ a manager who will give the players the fear to lose a game.

We need to finish 2nd - we then have a summer clearout a restart the DOF and Manager project from there.

JorgeTheHammer

1.) 21 Feb 2017 01:51:01
Completely agree. I think McLeish would be the best man for the job of it's only short term as he's actually been good the majority of the time when he inherits a team, it's when he tries to build a team that it goes pear shaped for him. I think he's one of the only managers that would accept standing in as an interim with the stage he is at in his career.


2.) 21 Feb 2017 06:24:12
The reason the team don't have a winning mentality is simple, the squad is full of journeymen from the lower leagues of English football who haven't won anything in the game! No leaders and not enough people with the club at heart


3.) 21 Feb 2017 06:47:15
The full of scottish football is full of journeyman who haven't won anything. that's just the way sckttish football is


4.) 21 Feb 2017 09:48:04
Yes but that's what set us apart in the past we've always had winners! Greig, Butcher, Gough, Amoruso, Ferguson Leaders of men who lead by example and set the tone befitting of a rangers player that's all I'm saying


5.) 21 Feb 2017 10:23:18
and we can't afford to live like that again i agree our team is pish but we are still third in the league this is our fist season back think some fan need a bit of perspective on here and McLeish short term yes long term don't think so any one remember poalo vanoli and hamed namuchi


6.) 21 Feb 2017 22:57:52
Kevin1984, I agree. The players were good last season in a lower division. Most have struggled to perform this season. There is no leader - no Gough, Greig, Butcher type who could grab the team by the scruff of the neck when things weren't going right. Thegers1986 is correct when he says the whole of Scottish football is full of journeymen but our problem is a lack of fight. Wee teams like Dundee, Ross Co and Morton in recent weeks have shown more desire than we have in the games. Dundee on Sunday, the majority of our players lost every 50-50 ball. These guys shouldn't bother training, they should be made to watch videos all day of guys like Souness, John Brown, Tam Forsyth and Graham Roberts.


7.) 22 Feb 2017 06:35:40
To a man our squad is better than most (bar Celtic) in terms of what the players have done in there careers, for example Kranjar has played in world cups, Wilson, miller, Wallace all international players, Hill has played in the premier league etc. When you compare that to Hamilton or Ross county for example they have very few if any with a similar CV but the point i'm trying to make is Everytime we play them they are organised defensively and hard to beat and that's the route we should be looking to take for the immediate future, organise, build from the back and see where we are in the summer


8.) 22 Feb 2017 09:09:21
Guys firstly i rated and liked big alex mcleish when he was our manager! But why do we keep looking back the way to former rangers managers? Its always the same ie. get walter smith, get graeme souness, get alex mcleish, not for me fellow bears, although i will and always have support any rangers manager, when they're eventually appointed! Jorge The Hammer, i totally disagree with you when you state alex mcleish could change our teams mentality, and billy davies couldn't! Billy davies without a shred of doubt in my mind, WOULD be able to change our players mentality as he's excellent at that, as well as being a very good manager/ coach! He knows the demands of glasgow rangers football club and has an inner steel and confidence within himself! He'd be perfect for us just now, at least until the end of the season IMO!


9.) 22 Feb 2017 14:30:20
7 trophies in 4 years and last 16 Champs League. big Eck signed a few dummies in his time. but Warbs Le Guen and even Watty signed a load of garbage from time to time. remember Boumsong nacho novo prso. as well as Boyd as a youngster from Killie. Signed Buffel and Big Marv and Murray from Hibs who were excellent value for money. Also brought through Hutton Mccormack Burke Mcgregor. and cut the wage bill and made £13m in tranfer fees. not a bad job i'd say


 

 

16 Feb 2017 10:24:36
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.

JorgeTheHammer

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.

Rangers target out of favour Newcastle Centre-Half Grant Hanley.

JorgeTheHammer

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!

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.

JorgeTheHammer

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
JorgeTheHammer

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
Snell

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.

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?

JorgeTheHammer

{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.

JorgeTheHammer

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.

JorgeTheHammer

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.

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.
