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.



21 Feb 2017 01:06:00
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.


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.


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

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.



13 Feb 2017 13:35:19
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

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.
