Ive been hearing a lot about how Morelos was promised he would be sold in January and when he wasnt he downed tools. There has been various conspiracies about this and how Ross Wilson and SG have fallen out over this. i'm not buying any of that. Ross Wilson was in the door 2mins when the last AGM was held. All he had had the chance to do in preperation for that AGM was evaluate the squad and provide a market value and a future market value. At that very same AGM Dave King stated that no amount of money would be able to buy Morelos in January so I very much doubt any promises were made to Morelos about being sold by Wilson or anyone else. I appreciate its a rumours site and all i'm saying is i'm not buying that one. I may be proven to be wrong. Morelos definitely isn't the same player since winter break though.

Think it’s got more to do with keeping it zipped away and being more honest with his wife. Baby on the way I know how stressful that is especially if labour is rough
You know when I went through similar with wife, labour that is not the keeping it zipped up, it affected my work as well. Just an observed opinion.

2.) 06 Mar 2020 19:45:53
Yes . I think this is nonsense too. Morelos hit the bar and the keeper from Hamilton made a world class save plus I think he is trying . it will come back . Eddie not scoring either but because focus is different no one notices .

Circumstances dictate moods . It’s funny that Lemmon is Waxing lyrical about his team after a draw at livvy. I am wondering what the reaction would have been if we were in front and that was more points they dropped . but because we lost, everything in their garden is Rosie lol.

3.) 07 Mar 2020 14:31:36
Im not worried about morelos. He is getting in the right positions and getting on the end of things and i honestly believe if he gets 1 the confidence will return and he will hit 40 this season.

Lads I have a bit of a story about a potential problem in the dressing room between some of the players. I've thought about whether or not I should post this as I don't know if I believe it or not.

When Tav had his appendix problem the captaincy obviously went to Connor Goldson as he is the named vice captain. Apparently nobody had given this a thought until Tav was unavailable. Connor Goldson is supposedly a guy who doesn't really mix with the other players on a personal level and keeps himself to himself off the pitch. When he took on the captains duties in Tavs absence he was supposedly playing up to it in the dressing room and giving it the big uns and calling everybody out for their mistakes. Some of the other players took exception to this and told him that Davis or Mcgregor should be the vice captain and not him. This has meant to have caused a bit of unrest.

So my source is someone who is friendly with Brandon Barker. She is not into football and doesn't ever talk to me about it but yet she has come up with this story. She wouldn't even know any of the players names i wouldn't think unless someone told her.

Im leaning towards this not being true but because a few on here have heard that SG has lost the dressing room I thought i'd post this as a potential explanation. I don't believe SG has lost the dressing room but maybe just maybe there are a few problems between the players themselves.


1.) 14 Feb 2020 18:49:17
No way Greegsy should be vice captain, he should be captain. He knows what it's all about.

2.) 14 Feb 2020 19:02:42
And that makes them all rubbish? This lassie knows nothing but knows all the names,

Problems in every dressing room in the country, same as all workplaces, personalities clash.

3.) 14 Feb 2020 20:28:11
That story is utter bs. there are no player issues and no issues with players and coaching team. The players are still 100% behind the management team and answers will be found to address the form and confidence slump. It’s time for our so called big players to take on the responsibility and get us back to where we were heading and that was clear to see in every aspect of team as improvement. We have improved but unfortunately so have Celtic.

4.) 15 Feb 2020 01:17:39
Hans Christian Andersen's publisher is interested in you writing for them, MOC Bear. This is the best fairy story of the season so far.

5.) 15 Feb 2020 09:27:09
GIve the guy a break. He’s just posting a rumour on a rumours site. why always the need to cry B. s?

6.) 15 Feb 2020 12:15:33
Cheers gersdaft. i'm a big boy and can take the responses that anyone wishes to come back with. I rarely post any rumours or things I've heard unless i know there is a bit of substance to them and i said that i didn't think what she was saying was correct. However if the covenanter enjoyed the story that much i'd happily make up more for him. Infact he could just continue writing some of his own BS he seems quite good at that. Goldson still with us no bid in January from Leeds or Fulham and no rumours of the bidding war happening between them for the summer. The egyptian winger we were supposedly interested in wasnt even spoken about. Now that I think about it did you not win the turner prize covenanter for best fiction😛😂.

7.) 15 Feb 2020 12:38:02
So she's no into football, doesn't know any players names but she's sat and had a conversation with Brandon barker about in depth info at rangers in dressing room first team goings on? That's like trying to put square pegs in round holes. I get its a rumours site etc and people pass on "what they have heard" and also from " people who wouldn't make stuff up" but something's are just silly. If this was to turn out to be a correct and confirmed situation the. Il happily come back here and eat humble pie.

8.) 15 Feb 2020 18:23:28
Kri55, don't know who or if you have a circle of friends that you completelty trust but sometimes pals talk to each other about things they know aren't of interest to the people they are talking to but want to get things off their chest. I know i do it. I re-iterate that I don't think this would be true but the girl is a decent person and knows BB very well. Like i said, i thought about whether i should post this or not and the only reason I did was because people on here had said they heard SG had lost the dressing room. This happened to be related to that thought process so i posted it. Simple as that.

9.) 15 Feb 2020 18:31:11
Oh and another thing kri55. What ever happened to Sturridge after he did his medical with us😂😂😂 Its a rumours site mate and I enjoy your input.

10.) 15 Feb 2020 19:35:55
Dunno about sturridge mate I've never mentioned his name lol
That's a fair enough point Mocbear and il retract my last statement. If its true its not a good sign however il take your word for it. As I say, last comment retracted and no hard feelings mate. Don't take it personal. 💙.

11.) 16 Feb 2020 08:38:43
Hugh Burns alluded to some friction in the dressing room. The problem started on the dubai trip.

12.) 18 Feb 2020 17:55:27
Any bears know what Hugh Burns was on about when he said something unsavoury happened in Dubai? He's a true Rangers man which makes me think he must know something for him to say that publicly.



02 Feb 2020 12:44:42
Its strange that the same dip in form has come at the same time 2 years in a row. SG is the man to take us forward. I absolutely believe that but in a couple of interviews during the winter break he has spoken about putting hard work in the players legs.

Maybe it should be a time for less work and more tactical development? We seem to lack a second option if our initial tactics don't work. We look like a very tired team, lacking energy and sharpness. Why?


1.) 02 Feb 2020 13:52:45
Think maybe the double sessions in Dubai might not help. It's a winter break, maybe they've been worked a bit hard, and might have been better to let the bodies rest a bit. No idea, just a bit weird that's its 2 year in a row the exact same has happened.

2.) 02 Feb 2020 15:14:20
Well how many calf injuries is that. Stewart, jack, Defoe. Davis was out briefly I’m sure after Dubai. And tabs problem all on the back of a training camp. I agree they have potentially been overworked or they have nt done enough and when required to up it again they have all picked up niggles.

3.) 02 Feb 2020 15:17:16
Punching above your weight takes its toll it’s hard to maintain.

4.) 02 Feb 2020 16:06:27
Don't think they should be going anywhere during break should be in Glasgow never mind having a winter hoilday some training then sitting by a pool geting served on hand and foot am not sure if there gf and wife's are there?

5.) 02 Feb 2020 16:19:39
Yea I think winter break in Dubai is a failure.

6.) 02 Feb 2020 20:43:41
It’s all part of the learning curve for a new manager unfortunately. SG needs to learn how to handle these breaks. We’ve been sluggish on return from international breaks as well, during his tenure.

7.) 02 Feb 2020 20:58:48
Suggested a while ago he'd worked them too hard in Dubai. Was greeted with the usual 'these are pro athletes, what a stupid comment' type responses.

8.) 03 Feb 2020 12:09:30
Personally I didn't see the point in Dubai. We have an amazing training ground already and we should have had a friendly against lower opposition to prepare us. It seemed like a pointless exercise.

9.) 03 Feb 2020 16:42:15
1872 mb u should replace all the sport scientists we have.

10.) 03 Feb 2020 18:13:57
The Dubai point was to build on the closeness of our team. Give them time away from here. Only our squad and management team will know if they were over worked but in modern football with the high technology statistical work I seriously doubt that they would have been over worked.
I hear the comments that the players look tired that's not from Dubai that's because they have played a load of games so far. Starting early with European qualification with not much time off after long season last year. We will improve and Celtic will drop points.

11.) 03 Feb 2020 20:06:28
Played a lot of games I agree, maybe should have given them a few days off, not double training sessions. 2 year in a row we've been terrible after Dubai and its cost us big time.



30 Jan 2020 13:48:48
Heard a wee bit of chat about us going after a Tottenham striker called Troy Parrott on loan until the end of the season. Mourinho rates the guy but wants him to play regular and Gerrard couldn't give assurances that he would play every week. Its now on SSN that the guy might be away to the Dutch league.


1.) 30 Jan 2020 15:06:47
Mediocre. Best let him go to Alan Pardew's Den Haag team. I would rather play Greg Stewart as a striker thanks.

2.) 30 Jan 2020 19:18:59
Polly's boy?



09 Aug 2018 23:41:47
I don't know the terms of Coulibalys loan but I hope we have an ootion to buy that we have already agreed. He is some player and his value will be going up with every performance. He reminds me of Kante, not saying he is as good but he covers every blade of grass and is ferocious in the tackle. His all round attitude is spot on and exactly the type of player we needed.


1.) 10 Aug 2018 05:09:19
As soon as he signed I knew he was going to be good pick up. I am sure he was linked with some pretty big clubs a few years back when he was first coming through. He could do a lot worse than sign for Rangers permanently should his loan be successful then move onto the PL in a similar way to Wanyama.

2.) 10 Aug 2018 08:53:28
I recall many on here having a pop cause he was an unknown loan player. Silenced and not a peep out them now 😂😂.

3.) 10 Aug 2018 09:36:03
People actually thought that the amount of loans were embarrassing🙃, better than having windass and holt etc in the team. Onwards and upwards👍.

4.) 10 Aug 2018 10:23:12
I’m Sure PSG we’re interested in him 2/ 3 seasons ago fantastic player from the few games I’ve seen him play for us, does the dirty work.

5.) 10 Aug 2018 15:44:13
Brilliant performance from him last night, even when it looked like a man had passed him he somehow managed to get a tackle in and win the ball so I see the similarities to kante. Really good performance last night just hope we can produce that regularly.

6.) 10 Aug 2018 22:47:36
Him jack and Arfield will be just awsome together wow.

Watched The Moody Blue last night. What a player Davie Cooper was. I can only vaguely remember him in a Rangers shirt but wish I'd seen more of him.

My dad is a Clyde fan and when Clyde moved to Broadwood I remember Cooper playing for Clydebank there in one of the first games played in the stadium. My dad told me to keep my eye on him andbhe didn't disappoint. He was a class act and must have been about 37/ 38 at the time.


1.) 27 Mar 2020 12:58:09
Coop a legend forever
What channel was moody blue on?

2.) 27 Mar 2020 13:03:36
Its on Rangers YouTube channel mate.

3.) 27 Mar 2020 13:47:46
Thanks pal.

4.) 27 Mar 2020 13:58:43
Those of us who are unfortunate to be old enough to remember the legend that is Davie cooper have great memories of what a fantastic player he was . Some of the things he could do with the ball, the dribbling, going past great defenders as if the weren't there totally mesmerising . I happened to be in the wrong end with the sheep fans hiding my scarf when he scored that brilliant free kick in the league cup final . what a player who will never be forgotten.

5.) 27 Mar 2020 15:02:22
Is that the one Jim Leighton said he almost got a hand to and cooper said aye maybe on the way back out? 😂.

6.) 27 Mar 2020 15:27:40
And andy cameron said if it wasnt for the net it would have ended up in rutherglen
Great memory😂👍.

7.) 27 Mar 2020 18:15:32
Was at the game at Hampden when he scored that superb goal, what a player, also sandy in royal blue scored a cracker as well.

8.) 28 Mar 2020 12:54:54
I was there too right at the corner flag beside the sheep end, and the crack when the ball hit the net had to be heard to be believed, Leighton certainly would only have had one hand left if he'd touched it, great player.



23 Mar 2020 11:46:09
Good morning bears. Hope you are all ok. I've been a bit absent from here recently. Worried sick about the delinquents who are not adhering to government rules spreading this like wild fire.

Anyway, 3 hours into home schooling and I have issued my 5 year old with her first punny😂 New found respect for teachers btw.


1.) 23 Mar 2020 12:34:58
My daughter (coming up 14) has been amazing tutoring her 2 younger brother and doing her own work. Wife and I had made up rotors to teach but she's doing more than both of us plus she has great patience something I'm totally devoid of. She's never mentioned teaching as a profession but she'd be ideal.
Working from home I'm finding hard thinking of converting the garage its just a dump now. trying to keep my dad self-isolating is a nightmare but i think we are winning. I hope all readers here, whichever team they support, the very best through this.



13 Mar 2020 10:33:38
So lads the season is most probably over in terms of competing for honours so what would we all like to see happen now?

I think let's go out on Sunday and remind Celtic that we are a really good team and they should be looking over their shoulders for next season. After Sunday I hope we get some clarity with regards to potential investment and what the situation is going to be with chairman etc. Once we get that I would hope that the club makes some sort of statement publicly backing Gerrard and start to build the anticipation for next season.

On the playing front I would like to see SG focus on playing the players that he wants/ knows will definitely be here next season and also give some young players some much needed experience. there's nothing better as a fan than seeing someone from your youth ranks come in and make an impression. I would probably play Kamberi to give the guy a real shot of convincing SG to make the move permanent. Morelos has probably already seen his value drop significantly since the winter break so I don't think benching him will have any further impact on his value. I'd like to see young Mebude play as back up to Kamberi as I think this boy has a real chance.




12 Mar 2020 22:30:51
Agree blue blue sea. They taught us a lesson in playing very simple posession football. Every one of their players were comfortable on the ball. They looked for the forward pass and if it wasnt on they simply passed back across the line and started again. We can't play that way because our fans get on the players backs at the first sign off a backwards pass. They were a really good efficient team and they are simply better than us.


1.) 13 Mar 2020 06:30:48
Hats off to rangers in our europa league games this season, as we've most definitely exceeded our expectations. Our club has done tremendously well in europe in general under steven gerrard!

Bayer leverkusen were a class above so although i detest my club losing any game of football, its no shame as far as i'm concerned! The young leverkusen playmaker Kai havertz is some player and the captain already at a very young age. He's going to be an absolute superstar, no doubt about that! Again well done the glasgow rangers! 👏👏.



12 Mar 2020 11:46:45
I fear the worst for the rest of the season with the government meeting today to decide on the closure of schools, people to work from home and the abandonment of football matches. I've got a feeling the Celtic game could be behind closed doors. If that's what's advised by the experts then just need to deal with it.

A couple of cracking free agents kicking about SGL. Benedikt Howedes is a class centre back just been released from Loko Moscow. Still just 32 and a world cup winner. Malang Sarr is a free agent but too many big guns after him so not realistic but would be a dream signing.

Goforbigcf, Kenny Miller was a boyhood Rangers fan and before football commitments meant he couldn't get to many games because he was playing himself he would regularly be at Ibrox with his uncle. Watch his interview with Si Ferry and Kenny Miller himself talks at length about supporting Rangers as a kid.

Daragh Macanthony the Peterbrough chairman was interviewed on Sky the other day and was speaking about Toney. There is not a cats chance in hell that we are in talks to sign him. Big bucks will be required and we will never break our transfer record of 12m to sign a player playing in the third tier of English football. Nor should we. He is a really good player but we could buy 3/ 4 difference making players for that money.

There might be truth in the fact that they don't get along although I don't know the reason for that. At the start of each game when the players are going around each other trying to motivate each other and high fiving etc Kent and Morelos have ignored each other the last couple of games. A pal pointed this out to me and i never thought anything of it until iggle just posted this rumour.

That said, its still no excuse for the drop in form. Sheringham and Cole hated each other but played brilliantly together for years.

That lad tore our youth side apart. Absolute class act. I would think that a lot of clubs would be after him and the chances would be slim but youve got to through your hat in the ring I guess.

Since the EPL restarted I've seen a couple of Norwich games. I've been really impressed with Emi Buendia. 24 year old Argentinian who can play Central midfield or out on the right wing. When I've seen him on the right wing he reminds me of Candeias because of his work rate and attitude but I think he has much more ability. I'd love to see him at Rangers but I think a few clubs will be after him to be honest.

Not for me. wouldn't mind the left back Antonee Robinson if Barisic was sold. He failed a medical at AC Milan in January because of a heart problem like Goldson had but a great player if he is coming back to full health.

I agree with you John in that Foden is an outstanding player. I just don't see us being able to attract talent of that level to Scotland. To be fair I don't think Billy Gilmour is far off Fodens standard if not already on a par so it does show we can develop that level of talent in Scotland without having to go looking to get loan players in.

I watched the Partizan v Red Star game last night and Sadiq was awful. He has scored a few goals this season for Partizan but just watching him was painful. First touch was minging, his effort levels were atrocious and his finishing when a chance came his way was sh#te.

Hi all. Not been on for a very long time. Trying to read and catch up on what the chat has been. Hope you are all good and families are all well too.

My opinion on JJ is he is not good enough unfortunately. Someone has already said that he is a one trick pony and I completely agree. He may well be useful when there is space in behind but we rarely play teams that allow us that space. he's not exactly a youngster either. I think he is 26 so he's probably reached his full potential and that's not the standard of player that moves us forward.

Thanks for the effort JJ but if we can get any transfer fee for him I thinknits time to move him on.
