Mark Warburton confident of 3 more signings by the end of the week. I'd imagine Krancjar, Mariappa and either Vaughan or Bradshaw. Says he thinks we need 4 players in. Add a goalkeeper, (McGovern perhaps) to this and I'm absolutely delighted with the way the squad is shaping up.
1.) 21 Jun 2016 22:19:56
So that's now 74 players you are signing at a cost of £96m that's great pmsfl.
2.) 21 Jun 2016 22:37:17
What happened to the Will Grigg rumour? If prefer to see him or Bradshaw to James Vaughan.
Happy with Windass, Crooks, Rossiter, Barton, Hill and the defender from Jamaica. Who is our cover for Wallace?
3.) 21 Jun 2016 23:05:41
I think hodson has been linked and can play both fullback positions. 3 close and 4 wanted but that was on top of kranjkar, so i'd say mariapa hodson and a st. Not sure about vaughan and bradshaws went quiet, think it might be a surprise maybe on loan and mcgovern after the euros.
4.) 21 Jun 2016 23:12:05
If Mariappa comes in I'm sure he can play across the whole back four if needed.
5.) 21 Jun 2016 23:08:05
Oh and glory hibs you obviously no nothing because if we signed all them plus what we have signed under mw so far itl be less than 2.5mill. Not bad eh?
6.) 21 Jun 2016 23:22:03
Glorhibs are you actually joking what's glorious about hibs bad enough the unwashed from East end on here now you's are crawling about back under yer rock.
7.) 21 Jun 2016 23:28:32
Haliday can play left back Teddy.
8.) 22 Jun 2016 00:26:10
Not enough height in the back line.
9.) 22 Jun 2016 01:30:11
Halliday is our cover at left back.
10.) 22 Jun 2016 00:27:56
Hibs boy who you signed? Neil Lennon? Absolutely brilliant to notch challenging for the premiership next year when Cummings and mcginn leave and Lennon gets found out to be a rubbish manager.
11.) 22 Jun 2016 01:53:57
Clint Hill also plays CB, LCB in a back 3, or LB. He will be our cover. And IF we sign Mariappa, he will be cover for right back as well!
12.) 22 Jun 2016 09:16:13
74 players for 96 million! sounds as if our Leith counterpart has got nothing to look at on his own clubs page so has to come on to our page and spout constant drivel!
13.) 22 Jun 2016 09:27:22
Wearerangers makes a very good point. Height in our back line is a major issue. We couldn't defend properly against high balls last season and now we are signing 5'10 centre backs? I am happy with the way things are going just now with regards to recruitment but this deffinelty has me questioning MW defensive side of his tactics.
29 Apr 2016 23:39:22
I believe we are interested in Hamilton Accies midfielder Greg Docherty. 19 years old and has featured this season. Was motm in the recent u20 game against us which MW attended. This is a player for the medium term and I am told there is strong interest. Not that it changes anything but he's also a huge Rangers fan.
1.) 30 Apr 2016 07:44:38
I can assure you he certainly is not a Rangers fan.
2.) 30 Apr 2016 10:06:56
3.) 30 Apr 2016 19:48:18
Alby1212, i can assure you he certainly isn't as he was in the year above me at school, season ticket holder and staunch blue nose. I'm intrigued as to why you would make such an assured accusation when you clearly aren't assured.
4.) 30 Apr 2016 23:34:15
I played in Greg's team at Accies, he most definitely is a Rangers fan. Also would be a good signing, fantastic drive and ability on the ball.
16 Jul 2016 17:17:33
Great to start with a win. Still only game 2 and could've been more. Need better performance at the back. Thought Kranjcar and Windass looked great, well played Tav and Waggy. MOH better going forward. Early days and still half a team to come in and maybe a couple more signings. Great to stuff an SPL team without too much effort. Before anyone starts moaning, go back 24 months when we had Moshni, Black and the like. We are going one way; forwards.
1.) 16 Jul 2016 18:24:58
Would love to debate the disagree.
2.) 16 Jul 2016 19:36:44
Not me I completely agree although thought Tav was exposed early doors.
3.) 16 Jul 2016 23:36:51
Kranjcar spraying the ball around with that space like a Hoddle in his prime.
07 Jul 2016 11:10:23
Although I love the idea of Auchenhowie being named as The Davie Cooper Academy or similar, are we not missing a trick by not looking for a sponsor for the training centre? At least that would be a commercial contract we would have ownership of and ability to manage?
1.) 07 Jul 2016 11:39:56
2.) 07 Jul 2016 11:55:30
didn't think of that! give mr king a call please let him know!
I am serious give the man a bell and say to him get emerites to sponsor it! lol.
3.) 07 Jul 2016 12:08:20
wouldn't mind if we sold it to a sponsor although the davie Cooper academy has a nice ring to it.
4.) 07 Jul 2016 12:41:53
Why would anyone want to sponsor a training ground?
Companies sponsor stadiums because they are on TV regularly, so get reach to customers through the deal. However, this is not true of training grounds.
Perhaps this is the reason King and Co have not yet considered trying to get a sponsor.
5.) 07 Jul 2016 13:23:44
Aon sponsor man utds training ground so why would others not want to do the same?
6.) 07 Jul 2016 13:36:31
how many times a week do we see on tv Murray Park and hear the name Murray Park? . The naming rights have a commercial value, the club should monetize and create a revenue stream.
7.) 07 Jul 2016 15:29:32
I have made contact. It is commercially viable for the right brand and value. Murray Park is currently synonymous with the training facility, correctly done it could be known as something commercially appropriate going forwards. Personally, I'd like to see this happening.
8.) 07 Jul 2016 17:26:30
Man utd are totally different, the company sponsors cover everything yo do with them, I said months ago mp should be renamed after Greigy or Coop, or both, and don't forget big colin Jackson, the original and real Bomber.
9.) 08 Jul 2016 01:17:41
I can't agree with selling off everything just to make some more cash. The academy should be sacred. What does it say to the young players other than 'its all about money'? It should be the Davie cooper academy. A name that shows them the history and inspires them.
14 Jun 2016 20:44:58
Do people understand that the transfer window hasn't actually opened yet and considered that perhaps we have signed all the released players we intend today the moment? Or as someone else has sensibly suggested, perhaps the other targets are in a tournament environment right now?
1.) 14 Jun 2016 21:04:27
Thing is mate, it has opened.
2.) 15 Jun 2016 00:56:18
Has it not been opened for like a week now or there about lifelongGer there's this invention called the internet and on it I'll whisper this bit "Google" just type in there Scottish transfer window 2016-2017 it tell you lots, chop chop son.
3.) 15 Jun 2016 05:36:27
U can only sign players from Scotland at the moment the window for the rest opens 1st July.
4.) 15 Jun 2016 08:12:47
Guys the Scottish window has opened. However nothing is stopping us from entering negotiations.
5.) 15 Jun 2016 09:36:54
only the Scottish window* is what that should say guys.
6.) 14 Jun 2016 22:27:34
I'm just glad the club can now keep the business in house with no one leaking anything.
21 May 2016 21:07:04
Hurting after today. Hurting because it was a half arsed performance and the majority of the players let themselves and the fans down. Still a bit raw but only pass marks for me were Wallace, Zelalem and Miller who I thought was MOTM for us. Holt was hiding but came into the game.
Halliday was poor, Tav is a shocking defender and Hibs took every opportunity to exploit him. Foderingham made some good saves but isn't good enough in my opinion. Wag horn looks as if he's stuck 3 stone on and wasn't fit, but he'll come back after a pre season.
Kieran was very poor and Wilson flatters to deceive. The majority looked like they are on holiday already and have done since the semi. Shiels, Law, Clark, Bell, Templeton, Aird must all go now. Tav, Wilson, Kiernan, Foderingham are on borrowed time.
These are just my opinions but can't see much room for manoeuvre. The fans were not sent home happy. The less said about full time the better. I won't comment on what the others did, but any of our support who got involved should be banned. You go on the park, don't come back.
We also had the old songbook back out and the flares. When will we learn. Hibs will be disciplined but I think we will be hammered too. A terrible advert for those watching around the UK. I'm a very disappointed, albeit lifelong, bear tonight.
1.) 21 May 2016 22:45:25
Totally agree. Heard the only reason Clark wasn't assaulted at the end of the game is because the Hibs fans couldn't find him on the pitch.
2.) 22 May 2016 00:54:45
embarrasing to loose two goals from corners.
18 Apr 2016 19:41:42
Was at the match yesterday, so many positives. Came home, watched the full SKY coverage again and watch the shoot out again this morning before work. Loved it.
I think we know now that Clark, Shiels and Law will be on their way to be replaced with. Water quality. So much to speculate on but whoever comes and goes, I have full faith in our management team who have done an exceptional job. I'll not get carried away but cast your mind back to April and May 2015. Look where we are now and we are only going in one direction. The team I love are being led by people who also love it. Well done to the Board for having the vision to bring in the relatively unknown MW and for investing in a group of players most hadn't ever heard of. This is our way forward and I can't wait for the last few games, a cup final and a transfer window which we won't be watching through our fingers in fear.
Hope every bear, irrespective of stance on King, formation and whatever had a brilliant day. I know I'm still buzzing.
We should add Yazz to the Ibrox playlist for next season. The Only Way is Up!
1.) 18 Apr 2016 19:51:43
Sorry for the typo - *better quality* Water quality only applies to beer 😜.
21 Jul 2016 08:19:29
No chip at all. I work in commercial. This isn't happening. Nothing to do with integrity.
15 Jul 2016 16:50:44
Not for me thanks. I'd be happy with Mariappa but not Hanley. The fact that he is a Scotland regular says much.
01 Jul 2016 17:32:21
McParland is going nowhere.
29 Jun 2016 22:05:00
I wish Luigi was our manager instead of MW. Said no one ever.
18 Jun 2016 20:44:40
Mo Johnston was spotted in Glasgow in May.
19 Jul 2016 13:51:00
You can download the puffin browser free and quickly. Job is a good 'un.
19 Jul 2016 09:42:21
No to both. Had their chances and haven't set the world alight recently. I'd like a younger CB to play alongside Hill thanks.
16 Jul 2016 18:24:58
Would love to debate the disagree.
16 Jul 2016 08:15:55
Before we know it, it'll be the pink panther theme tune. Dodoo, dodoo, dodoo, dodoo, dodoo, dodoo, dodoooooooo.
15 Jul 2016 18:25:34
Fair question but honestly couldn't care less. I'm all for moving on, but this shower has diligently stuck tr boot in whenever possible. Quite happy for them to stay away, especially Messrs McLaughlin and English. Oh and Nevin. And Cosgrove. And Cowan. The list goes on.
