Does anyone else feel as though we are giving Hearts an incredible advantage by undermining the prospect of resigning players like Lafferty and Naismith?
Lafferty has hit 11 goals in the first half of the season. Naismith, love him or hate him is a player of far greater quality than the likes of Devante Cole. The only way we will sign £8m players just now is with circumstances like these. Unreal to think people are not willing to see how he does until the end of the season.


1.) 12 Jan 2018 07:18:42
agree nassau

naisy does split opinion on here in terms of how he left etc but his quality and commitment as a player aren’t in doubt

by not showing any interest and allowing him to sign for killie or hearts is a mistake

my brother in law was at the game last night and said goss and murphy both showed up well windass scores a cracker whole team played well but he said herrera was poor

we are desp for another striker after missing out on moult

2.) 12 Jan 2018 09:46:39
I would rather we go for Cummings, along with Windass and Morello our front line would be looking good. I would like Naismith back but I would rather see us signing young talent.

3.) 12 Jan 2018 13:03:16
Is Naismith still the player of 2011 tho?7 yr have passed and a lot of injuries so we should stop living in the past and just assume he's going to be the same as he was

4.) 12 Jan 2018 14:45:18
I agree as well, however he offers no value as an asset, which devante cole would, of course we need players to try and win us the league but we also need to be signing players that are going to offer us value in the long run which Naismith wouldn't unfortunately. However if the money is there I'd like to see both come in.

5.) 12 Jan 2018 14:56:45
How's about having Murphy, Morelos, Naismith, O'Halloran and Cummbgs at the club. A club of Rangers stature requires an abundance of fire power. We've talked about the need for a stronger squad. well this is our chance.

6.) 12 Jan 2018 14:57:56
I would take the wee man in a heartbeat . alright he slagged his employers off, but if anyone got the same stuff at their work would you not feel the same .

7.) 12 Jan 2018 14:58:40
Nassau. As much as I don't hold a grudge against Naisy as much as others I still don't think players like him are the way forward. A. He's no longer an 8 mill player. B. Adds no financial value to team.

TBH if we could I'd go for Cummings AND Cole.
That way we would have 3 proper young forwards (Cole 22,Cummings 22 and Morelos 21). You would hope that 2 of the 3, at least, come good. Sell 1 on for profit and you still have 1 good one at least.
This has to be our business model.

8.) 12 Jan 2018 15:23:44

Naismith held a press conference to declare Rangers dead and that he was leaving and owed the new club nothing. Bit different from slagging off his employers. He betrayed all Rangers fans and only reinforced the opinion held by others that the club died

9.) 12 Jan 2018 17:41:04
Spot on stewie25!Let stevie naismith go sign for hearts! I don't want him near glasgow rangers! He betrayed the club he professed to love, in its hour of need! Rangers stuck by him through not 1 but 2 serious cruciate ligament injuries! Some have short memories just like naisy!

10.) 13 Jan 2018 11:07:03
Betrayed the club ? . calm doon big boy



20 Dec 2017 18:14:57
If rumours are true about Jason Cummings Rangers should act fast. He is one of the long list of players recently we have failed to aquire in the transfer window, that should have been signed immediately.


1.) 20 Dec 2017 18:54:46
jordan jones agent is speaking to rangers

2.) 20 Dec 2017 23:00:25
What’s happening with Cummings?

3.) 21 Dec 2017 06:25:00

4.) 21 Dec 2017 07:21:20
He’s fell out with Warburton

5.) 21 Dec 2017 10:10:23
He's not the right fit for rangers please believe me. btw that's nothing to do with him as a player. it's the type of person he is

6.) 21 Dec 2017 11:11:54
Rangers would be lucky to have someone like Jason Cummings upfront with Morelos. We definitely need to do something this transfer window to show we are still interested in actually fighting for this Championship because we are not that far off, we just 4 strong players to strengthen the squad.

7.) 21 Dec 2017 12:33:23
Warburton publically stated that the fall out rumours were wrong

8.) 21 Dec 2017 19:26:46
He'll go bk to Lennon/ Hibs anyway



17 Dec 2017 01:04:37
Rangers need to have a look at their work ethic levels today. On the ball they produced little, and off the ball we're nothing short of pitiful. Failure to press St Johnstone when they had possession, and failure to show desire and urgency when tracking back. The fact they brought on a guy who can't run the length of the 6 yard box when Barjonas is available is disgraceful.

Again showed weakness in the lack of capable squad depth. Major work needed on teams intensity levels. We should be on the attack from start to finish and show a superior level of fitness. That was nothing short of a shambles today. Creativity and effort non existent. I'd fine any player who comes out and says 'we know we need to do better' or 'we let the fans down' after that. That patter is not acceptable. Actions matter. Words do not.


1.) 17 Dec 2017 06:44:53
we have zero creativity in that team and because of that we can't play against teams who sit in its no coincidence that's why murtys results against the lower teams is so bad but he’s had great results against the sheep and hibs because they came and had a go and left gaps i also feel its time for wes to be replaced he doesn't look like saving anything anymore and his distribution is awful every successful team I've saw in my life time has had the foundation of a quality goalkeeper

2.) 17 Dec 2017 09:32:22
I agree we need quality we need three one four players who can do things different with the ball open up defences, we played well at home to Aberdeen and got the job done away, but other than those two game we have been dire away to Hibs we were awful we got battered and Wes saved our bacon with some great saves, so for me two acceptable performances against Aberdeen, the other games under Murty have been atrocious, now I'm not blaming Murty he has been hung out to dry by this circus of a board he has been the guy that has stood in front of the media and answered the questions where is our board yes hiding in their tower releasing crass statements on managers who have turned us down, they should hang their heads in shame does anyone think we have moved on since they got their hands on the club, they have been responsible for The of the worst managers in the clubs history, spent millions backing those pair of duds leaving us with no manager and a bunch of players with no heart no fight and no hope, we still have fans blinded by two results against Aberdeen and a smash and grab against Hibs, we are only a few points behind Celtic if we had won against this team or that team we would be ahead, well let me burst that bubble we didn't winning four in a row is no great feat to me I've been a supporter for over thirty years share holder and season ticket holder and I'm raging about the state of my club, fans need to let their voices be heard this is not good enough the board need to be taken to account for the shambles we are in, a chairman who is never here that's ok if the club is going well and the right men are left in charge but none of those apply here, please sit down look at our results and performances and judge if we are any closer to a title challenge, we are not we need a manager in who demands respect a man when he walks into a room everyone shuts up and sits up he earns the respect of the players who in turn would run through a brick wall for him, what I see here is players who just give up when things turn against and a manager who is out of his depth, I'm not having a go at Murty he is an honest man a good coach and a lovely guy but he is our U20s coach, like it or lump it things will not get any better till we have that manager in place and money to spend so buckle up for more of yesterday we are a mid table team nothing more

3.) 17 Dec 2017 13:39:59
Think we need to keep calm bears, that was a shocking performance yesterday and there’s no excuse for it, none were offered. For me it’s about the reaction to this and hopefully we will be at it from minute 1 in the next 3 pivotal games. We have a lack of quality in the meantime dole of the park and that needs addressing but we were also missing Dorrans who for me will be perfect for the top of the diamond formation. Tav and John are good players but they are no world beaters and we will have days like yesterday when we struggle to break teams down. The defensive mistakes yesterday were shocking but they were individual mistakes once again and the players need to look at themselves for them.

I still feel positive about the season and was glad to see Morelos score again! We need him to march onto 20+ goals this season and I had hoped for 15 from Dorrans but he still has time if he can get fit and stay fit. We need a midfielder to take Holts jersey. While Holt tries his heart out his passing isn’t up to it and he’d be better as back up I think.

4.) 17 Dec 2017 15:24:53
we need 2 wingers urgently tav and john need to stay back and try and defend better to save us being caught out as often.

I hate to say it but that is the second time in as many weeks we have shown no fight, no commitment, no ability, no creativity, no desire to press without the ball, no ability to pass a ball and players can't be arsed getting off the deck when they've lost possession or missed a chance. This is nothing short of brutal to watch. Something has to change here. A very poor Kilmarnock team has bullied and out played Rangers today. We should all realise that this can't go on. Dismal display. The goal aside, we done nothing right in any of the 90 minutes. Horrible.


1.) 23 Dec 2017 14:32:48
Yeh I know. But I'll tell you what will fix the situation give the guy that's displayed these performances a job until the end of the season.

2.) 23 Dec 2017 14:37:16
disaster of an appointment. Murty should go now. didn't want him in the first place . tactically unaware and completely out of his depth



21 Dec 2017 09:15:57
Forget Cochran and Morgan.
Two of the best young talents in Scotland just now Jordan Thompson and Ryan Hardie's contracts run out this summer. While we've been giving a Mexican cart horse time on the pitch where he has scored once, Hardie has been banging in hatricks left right and center in the development squad. He now looks like he will have to decide if he is to look for a first team breakthrough elsewhere with QPR interested.


1.) 21 Dec 2017 10:09:21
Nassau. I've been banging on about Hardie for the last year and been criticised on here for it. Surely we've nothing to lose by playing more youngsters. Hardie and Morelos sounds like an exciting pairing. Look how well McCrorie, Bates and Wilson have done.

2.) 21 Dec 2017 12:26:13
Murty must not think he’s first team material then he sees him day in day out and he’s not getting a game

3.) 21 Dec 2017 14:27:01
Have to agree that Murty doesn't rate Hardie. If anyone knows what his ability is then surely it's Murty. Jordan Thompson is another one who hasn't hit the radar. We've got youth coaches and their job is to identify and develop talented players. Who missed Cochrane and Morgan? That's the question. We can't afford to make these mistakes.

4.) 21 Dec 2017 20:43:30
In the same vain look how shocking Barjonas was last week and he's a star in the development side. Hardie can go, he's mince. Seen reports this morning saying the boy Morgan chose celtic over rangers because he feels he will develop better under brenda. Fair play to him cause that's probably true. I'm p*ssed off it's taking so long but our next manager won't be a patch on brenda and that's so so depressing as more youngsters will want to play for celtic than us when even rangers supporting players can see it's better for them to go to celtic.

5.) 21 Dec 2017 20:46:22
I agree with Allan, there must be something not quite up to scratch with Hardie as don't think murts would hesitate to include him more.

6.) 21 Dec 2017 20:48:49
kfraser nobody 'missed' these boys, one is playing in the championship and mo matter the hype he's not good enough, while the other left of his own volition.



15 Dec 2017 21:33:49
DOF Mark Allen bringing in young players which have fitting attributes that can slot right in to the current playing squad can only be a good thing. In recent seasons the squad has been threadbare. A couple of injuries has crippled any chance of serious progression. Having players of the same quality in reserve is just as important as having a strong starting 11. IMO the club should strive to have a 23 man squad that management and fans alike can have full confidence that they will make a positive impact to a top level fixture. Only then can we be serious about winning anything. It's fair to say some in our reserve are not as ready as they should be and are in no way committed or able enough to wear our crest. Players like McCrorie, Barjonas, Bates and Hardie will strengthen the playing squad but there needs to be a constant conveyer belt of young talent to match the level of consistency required to set the standard going forward.




11 Dec 2017 10:03:16
I think we now need to go for a foreign manager. I wanted a British manager but the candidates are poor. Scottish club's will no longer sell their assets to Rangers unless big money is involved. We need to wait to get them on frees. Then all it takes is for the West Brom's and Crystal Palace's to wade in last minute and steal them. Much like what will happen with Walker and McLean. We missed the boat big time on these two and Moult. We now need to look at a different market which is capable of producing in our game. The level of player required is not achievable from English League One. I know think Michel Preud'Homme is as sound a bet as any in the summer with 3 Domestic League Titles under his belt as well as 2 Belgian FA Cups and a Dutch FA Cup. He has a knowledge of the Benelux market and has succeeded everywhere he has been. Time to think outside the box.


1.) 11 Dec 2017 11:11:31
I don't fink a foreign manager is a bad idea aslong as its someone with abit of clout and not some guy plucked from the 5th best side in the desert 🌵

2.) 11 Dec 2017 18:11:00
The unholy trinity getting dredged up again. Moult, Walker, McLean forever and ever amen. Only Moult would get near a Rangers jersey and even then there's better out there.

3.) 12 Dec 2017 08:47:52
Duty calls

Can you please name them then?



10 Dec 2017 14:23:44
An interesting point raised this morning over Warburton's signings. Where would Rangers be just now if the board had backed him enough to acquire his first choice additions? I don't think he got one first choice signing. Even Barton wasn't the first name on the list for the ill fated marquee signature. Senderos, Barton, Hill, Garner were all signed after the board failed to acquire the number one target. The guy was slated for his signings but never got who he wanted. Even Tav was second choice to Reece Wabara. I know teams will miss out on players all the time. But to be failed in key positions constantly like with the Diagouraga saga, instead having to go with John Toral on a loan. He didn't stand a chance of competing the way he wanted.


1.) 10 Dec 2017 15:00:38
Tav is a much better player than Reece warbra tho so that one work out ok.

2.) 10 Dec 2017 17:04:59
Mate warbs wanted and signed the likes of halliday kiernan etc and persisted on playing his favourites even though there was better options on the bench, he also persisted with the same tactics when is clear they were not working. For a manager who constantly said that we would learn from this, ironically he never did learn. He had to go and so did the majority of his signings.

3.) 10 Dec 2017 18:37:31
Yes I agree to an extent about his tactics being one dimensional, he himself made it clear when he joined what his philosophy was. The point was a very small margin of his signings were his number one targets. Lucky to get someone in the top 5 of a 10 man shortlist, which is quite frankly appalling. So it is no wonder he couldn't get the winning mentality he knew he required to be long term manager.

4.) 10 Dec 2017 20:03:48
If Warburton had been more pragmatic then he might have lasted long enough to find out how much backing he would have been given in a Europa League qualifying campaign. As it turned out he wasn’t and was rightfully moved on IMO. Pedro again was rightfully moved on after a truly shocking semi vs Motherwell, one thing the board cannot be held for is bottling a big (but correct) decision.

Keep Believing!

5.) 10 Dec 2017 21:21:55
Missed the point totally again. Warburton obviously deserved the sack because he wasn't winning consistently. He lived and duely died by his signings which did not show the required competitiveness to challenge domestically. Signings of which a small number were actually first on his transfer list.

6.) 11 Dec 2017 10:46:23
Barton should have been a first choice signing. given a proper chance and more than 8 games he played he could have been a fantastic signing. but all the numptys from the other side of Glasgow and the press hated him and the fact Warburton played him central defence in the celtic game. I for one was glad to see Warbs and Weir leave and get rid of Forester, Dodoo, Senderos and the rest of the mediocre player he signed

Blue 89 is right. He's no target man. Just a cart horse

We should offer them O'Halloran and £300K. Their evaluation is way off the mark at £1m. But a player and cash seems fair for both teams. Important to keep a good relationship with Killie as they are one of the few teams who never bladed us when we were at our weakest. A percentage of future transfer fee should be availible for Ayeshire's finest.

I think we need to move Alves, Hodson, O'Halloran and Herrera. Kranjcar will see out the remainder of his contract as will Dalcio his loan spell.

These players know they would be playing for Aberdeen for 2 seasons if they go to the cowshed. Orange sherbet won't play anyone without commission potential.

If Tyler Roberts is coming in and Naismith and Cummings join Mutphy at Ibrox, O'Halloran should be offered to Aberdeen for McLean. Worst they can say is no but who cares. Makes good business sense for the Dons as they would be getting a return for their investment, and Rangers gain another piece in the puzzle.

Tony Pulis has managed in the EPL for over 10 years. Can't believe people are trying to say he's not as good as McInnes because he's not came second in the SPL 😂! I'm sure keeping teams afloat in a position worth over £80m a year to them isn't pressure. And triumphing in the pursuit of the EPL dream doesn't come with prestige.
Waken up. Pulis is a great manager but Macdoj is right, he will end up at Stoke when Hughes gets sacked and will be given millions for a short term contract.

Pains me to see Pena play in midfield. No urgency to press teams, no intensity and no work ethic. Said before I'd like to see him upfront with Morelos but at the moment Windass deserves that role. Our big worry for Wednesday is midfield. There will be no McCrorie, Dorrans or Jack potentially. There's nobody left to partner Holt except Barjonas and a severely immobile Kranjcar. Hopefully McCrorie makes the starting 11 though.
