Mark Warburton clear favourite for the Fulham job.
Hope and think he will stay with us but this, unlike jobs like Liverpool, seems a realistic possibility.
Any thoughts bears?
1.) 30 Nov 2015 18:48:29
Warburton has already assured all Rangers fans that he is here for the long haul. He has a job here and is working hard to get us back to the top and obviously there will be admirers of him because of the great job he is doing but I'm sure he will stay.
2.) 30 Nov 2015 20:13:18
He is a man of honour and will stay at least to the summer, I reconQPR are holding out for him in a few years, once he sorts us out he would want back to the smoke for sake of his family, we got him for a few heras so let's enjoy.
3.) 30 Nov 2015 19:15:28
Naz why would he go to Fulham? Because they are a london club and his family are in london, far to little a job for him, he said he will be here until we reach the champions league final, although we know this was an of the cuff remark by him I think he will be here for years yet, I certainly hope so, as the man knows what he wants for our club.
4.) 01 Dec 2015 00:18:13
Aye he's seems to be a pretty sound and honourable enough sort of guy so I would expect him to at least see his contract out. You never know either, this club has a funny old way of getting under your skin and becoming part of you. In a year or so he might just be true blue like the rest of us eejits and want to stay on for the long haul. He's done alright so far.
5.) 01 Dec 2015 09:34:58
Well he was asked yesterday when he would consider the "job done" at Ibrox and his reply was when we get to Champions League Final. So i reckon he will be here for another three years :)
6.) 01 Dec 2015 10:22:10
getting pretty bored of these ridiculous rumours every time there's a managers job somewhere.
7.) 01 Dec 2015 11:07:53
It's not a ridiculous rumour, he's the odds on favourite, I hope he gets linked with a few more clubs in the next 3 yrs, because it will mean he's doing well for us.
8.) 01 Dec 2015 15:00:20
it is ridiculous. he's going nowhere.
9.) 01 Dec 2015 20:41:39
The bookies have him as favourite, they don't get it wrong too often. He speaks well, and did seem to choose his words quite carefully when asked yesterday. Fulham do appear to think it's a possibility and have made their intentions clear.
Personally I don't think it will happen. He has spoken of the challenge of restoring rangers and does seem to relish it. Fulham would offer a bigger playing budget but realistically the best they can hope for is promotion then a real struggle in the premiership. And if he was to fail to get promoted then he would be one of the many managerial casualties he spoke of yesterday.
But let's be honest here guys and not get carried away. So far has he done anything at ibrox beyond what should be expected? A firm no.
Too many fans are using the pathetic last season as a yard stick. The reality is we are playing against a very low standard of opposition with tiny playing budgets. We are beginning to really struggle to break these teams down. The January transfer window can't come soon enough as we desperately need a cutting edge. We are far too predictable, one paced, and very frustrating to watch.
We should also be honest, things are not as Rosie as many claim. HIbs have real momentum and are a real danger unless we get out act together.
10.) 01 Dec 2015 18:00:32
He ain't going any where fast. He is staying.
11.) 01 Dec 2015 20:53:26
Spot on he would need to prove himself at a higher level than the Scottish championship, with a far higher budget than any other team, before even a division one team in England would be interested.
12.) 01 Dec 2015 23:01:43
Frustrating to watch luigi?
Had to watch tonight's game on TV and I was thoroughly entertained second half. Lots of lovely passing and wee flicks and lay offs etc. Agree we are one paced, 100 mph though!
Teams now just sit back and try to soak it up, a bit like a boxer that knows he's onto a hiding, if I may use that analogy, to hopefully then hit us on the break. I feel teams have sussed us out as last season they could've had a go but this season they've realised that by doing that they get spanked and now just sit back. We are now a completely different prospect to the last few seasons and now they know it, they don't fancy it. The, "It's only Rangers, " attitude has now been replaced by, "Aw naw, how many are we gonnae get pumped by? "
13.) 01 Dec 2015 22:50:01
Fab1 for the very first time I agree with your comment above, I even posted the same on the banter site before I seen your post, so for a first time we are agreed on something, lol.
14.) 02 Dec 2015 14:12:57
Pieandbovril if you watched the game then you should know what I'm talking about. The first half was very very poor and was very frustrating, like many of our recent performances.
Thank goodness we got a quick goal in the second half, but the scorline was a bit unfair on them. They had the best chance of first half and could easily of had a penalty (ball challenge) .
Pretty much every football pundit seems to share my view on this, and MW post match interview expressed his disappointment in the frustrating slow play in the first half. Suppose you know better?
In terms of the sea change in attitude you speak of from the opposition. Please stop using last seasons pathetic failure (IMO one of the most pathetic failures in world football history) as a yard stick. These teams are of a very, very low standard with tiny playing budgets. Struggling to break down this level of opposition is frustrating, MW was clearly frustrated in the first half. A point made in near every match report.
If we hold off hibs challenge (I'm afraid that is an if) then we need to improve vastly over the summer to come close to a top six finish (no chance of a realistic title challenge) , on current ability we are nowhere close. an uncomfortable truth.
15.) 02 Dec 2015 07:55:48
It wasn't a dig billy, I'm just being honest, yes he is obviously a far superior manager than ally but at the moment he is only doing the same job any decent manager worth his salt would be doing, nothing extraordinary that would make any English Premier or championship team sit up and take notice, and yes before you say it Ronnie is in exactly the same boat .
16.) 02 Dec 2015 10:43:42
Pieandbovril don't forget while your guys were over at Murray park ( lol ) getting massages and being fed chicken and pasta yesterday lunchtime, the Dumbarton boys were finishing there shift at there day jobs, I know this for a fact because I work in the same building as one of them, his answer when I asked him if he was looking forward to the game was " no cannae be arsed tonight, its pissing down and I'm not finished here till half three " says it all about half the teams your up against this year.
11 Sep 2015 17:46:13
Have I got this right. Dave King wants to take Oldco out of liquidation and pay creditors maybe 50p or 60p in the pound.
This being a man who openly wanted liquidation rather than administration. And who also claims to be a major creditor?
1.) 11 Sep 2015 18:46:31
Whats your point?
As a supporter liquidation was a sensible option at the time. Remember the BIG tax case was hovering around.
He was undoubtedly a creditor so would have two views on the situation.
2.) 11 Sep 2015 19:41:15
I am just baffled if all is well in the rangers just now why would king feel the need to even bring this up up? They are playing the best football of any team on the planet the new manager has skills and knowledge beyond the fergusons and mourinhos of the world.
So why try to resurrect the liquidated club if all is well. Or if whilst doing his due diligence they have realised it is actually as we all know a new club or the sfa have confirmed to him it is the new club formed in 2012 and fearing the fans backlash when thus is finally confirmed tries this I will buy the liquidated rangers "the traditional rangers " to stop the future riots in the streets and protest marches to hampden??
3.) 11 Sep 2015 23:35:04
I think it only right the people who ended up losing money from the liquidation get as much of their money back that they were due.
I for one think this is a good thing and also shows that we are no longer being taken for a ride by spivs while also regaining a bit of pride and respect by righting a few wrongs done by Whyte and SDM.
If it's viable and can be achieved why not.
I have no interest or do I care about the new club, old club patter that goes about. All I know it's still the same club I grew up following since I was a kid and while its been a rough time over the last few years I still love watching rangers play, maybe more now than ever. All the crap should have taught us all never to take success for granted.
4.) 11 Sep 2015 22:42:05
Naz you missed Dave kings main point, if we collect the money that was taking from U.S. illegally then people would probably be paid 100 p in the pound, we have now got hmrc by the stones IMHO.
5.) 12 Sep 2015 10:27:22
Liquidation of the oldco at that time was required to protect the football club.
Now that the truth is all unravelling I think it would be a good gesture to use the money coming in from the court cases to pay creditors 60-100p on the pound, take the old company out of liquidation and reunite the club with the old company.
Everyone's a winner, it makes sense and draws a line under the years of sabotage under the running of Loyds bank, Craig White, Charles Green and all the other corporate vandals who tried to take advantage of the "big tax case" which was hanging over us at the time.
55 is coming
6.) 12 sep 2015 11:23:43
santa and northger, you are right.
it is good to do something more than you have to. it draws a clear line between the spivs and where we are now (and indeed used to be all the time).
only dk will know why as regards the timing.
7.) 12 Sep 2015 22:49:51
Bigp did you actually just say Warburton has skills and knowledge beyond fergie and mourinho !!! I'm enjoying the football and I think we are going places but mate tuck your neck in and put a leish on it that's a riddy 5 ggames into the championship
03 Feb 2017 11:19:57
"I'm reading in the paper Celtic are on a record-breaking run. If they won four games less, they would be 13 ahead. If we had won one of our games it would be 10."
For a man who is supposedly the smartest manager in Scottish football, Warbs hasn't half been talking a load of mince over the past few weeks. Are we actually expected to take some solace from that statement?
1.) 03 Feb 2017 12:44:49
Did he actually say that naz.
2.) 03 Feb 2017 16:02:01
Reported word for word from his press conference yesterday by several papers.
And for a guy that worked in the city apparently he strangely gets mixed up with some basic arithmetic -
If Celtic had lost 4 more games that would be 12 points but he says 'If they won four games less' meaning the games could all have been drawn that would mean 8 points.
3.) 03 Feb 2017 16:15:40
4.) 04 Feb 2017 12:30:06
I read that as well mate, i must admit i couldn't actually believe what i was reading. its fair to say he isn't exactly dealing with the pressure too well
01 Dec 2016 13:51:36
If our business plan is based on getting European football next season, then even if we get special dispensation over FFP, how far would anybody expect this team to go in the Europa?
Remember the team that outplayed us in every area of the pitch were knocked out by a team from Malta only a few months ago in the first round qualifiers.
Going back to FFP, Dave King might spout complete guff about our finances being the envy of footballing clubs worldwide but UEFA aren't as gullible as King assumes most bears must be and they will be more interested in his 'over-investment' claims and the fact that we are officially a going concern.
And if we want to sack Warbs, remember this would require even more soft loans which again makes us less likely to qualify for Europe under FPP (assuming we actually finish in the top three or top four if Celtic win the Cup) .
1.) 01 Dec 2016 14:39:45
They would struggle to make it through the play off stages. A favourable draw would be required. Hopefully the Imps could be avoided as we saw what they did to the world beaters this season. Not sure what you mean by 'officially a going concern'.
2.) 01 Dec 2016 15:12:44
1 maybe 2 rounds of the qualifying stages.
3.) 01 Dec 2016 16:46:47
We are officially a going concern because we don't have enough cash to see out the current season without loans as stated in the last released accounts.
Apparently in the last ten years apparently fifty odd clubs have not been able to enter European competitions due to FPP which is a much higher figure than I would have guessed.
As for the qualifying stages we would get around 200,000 euros per leg from UEFA, which with gate money and TV rights would maybe earn very roughly two million (could be wrong here and I would assume the first match would be on the season ticket) if we competed in three legs before going out - so not much more than the cost of a Joe Garner possibly.
If anybody has more accurate figures feel free to correct me.
4.) 01 Dec 2016 17:26:14
Cullin i wouldent worry about Europe next year if I were you. There is no chance you will qualify to play in it.

World's Greatest Mysteries.
3. Who really was Jack the Ripper?
2. Did Atlantis really ever exist?
1. Why did we think paying £1,500,000 for Joe Garner was a good idea?
1.) 23 Oct 2016 18:47:59
Warburton has wasted the money given to him this summer and so far his summer signings have been poor. Let's be honest Warburton has turned us into a Kilmarnock or Ross County and has spent around £3m to do so. Today's game was a classic example of Celtic beating an average team that no had no threat going forward. Great goal keeping, poor finishing and some last ditch tackles saved us from another hiding. Warburtons after match comments were even more worrying. Talk about not being in touch with reality!
2.) 23 Oct 2016 19:01:32
haha, superb comment. Not seen much to get excited about with Garner, he should return to Eastenders!
25 Aug 2016 11:20:29
Just noticed that Lewis MacLeod is in the Scottish Under 21 squad and apparently has started the season well with Brentford. Best of luck to the lad.
1.) 25 Aug 2016 11:42:31
Yeah he's had a horrible 18months since he left us, but now she he's fit again he's broke into the first team at Brentford and he's playing very well, best of luck to him because he really was a great talent.
2.) 25 Aug 2016 12:26:00
Good luck to the lad!
3.) 25 Aug 2016 13:35:30
That is a player we should be pulling out all the stops for now he is fit he was only sold out of spite by a board who wanted to wreck our club and knew their time was up.
4.) 25 Aug 2016 13:57:05
Or perhaps he just stood out in a rubbish team?
5.) 25 Aug 2016 23:26:55
Nah Boss as a Celtic fan I can even admit the boy had a bit of class about him! Hopefully stays injury free and then will be interesting to see how he processes.
6.) 25 Aug 2016 19:04:41
Started the season in great form 2 or 3 assists in the league and unlucky not to get himself a few goals so far hope he can stay fit real potential for the future, playing out on the right still.
27 Jul 2016 10:52:01
Today's bet. Astana (-1) to beat Celtic is 9/ 2. Surely worth a pound or two of any Bear's money!
1.) 27 Jul 2016 11:28:30
Will definitely have some of that.
2.) 27 Jul 2016 11:33:41
I'll think Celtic will shock the world and get a score draw in KZ. My bets are 1-1 and 2-2. Astana will of course win at Parkhead in the return leg!
3.) 27 Jul 2016 11:55:13
Astana to win 4 nil 66/ 1. Think big fellow bears.
4.) 27 Jul 2016 12:48:38
You might be right naz. you certainly were about brondby won me a few quid so cheers mate.
5.) 27 Jul 2016 12:58:13
Mate there's a C****c section. Personally I couldn't care less about anything regarding them, at least until the league starts. Any time you mention them you are giving them free advertisement here on a Rangers forum. If it was up to me it would auto censor C****c and we wouldn't have a "C****c Posts" either. We aren't as a community petty like Timalloy and people of that ilk from the other side who obsess over us with his millions of imaginary bear fans who by the way only ever seem to make massive mistakes in bets and always seem to be making a fool of themselves which I guess is convenient for the as he would describe Dave King a glib and shameless liar. writing false and bias expose's about how much he doesn't care about us and regardless of what we do how little of a threat we are meant to be. I love this forum for its complete lack of C****c. Take a look at the other forum they can't go four posts without talking about us let's be the better people and just drop all C****c talk till the start of the season.
As our manger preaches: "It's got to be about Rangers and that's no disrespect to any other club. "
6.) 27 Jul 2016 13:09:00
Copenhagen look good value tonight as well. I have Copenhagen and Astana doubles to win, to win -1, to win +2.5 etc.
7.) 27 Jul 2016 13:32:05
worth a wee sky diver at 66/ 1 ill be having that and might take a tenner on the astana -1 aswell.
8.) 27 Jul 2016 14:36:31
Lighten up Ross. I promise to never say a good word about them. Ever. Howzat?
9.) 27 Jul 2016 16:19:50
If it's laughing at Celtic I'm all for it.
10.) 27 Jul 2016 17:20:16
It's just my opinion I just don't like talking about them personally I'd just rather talk about Rangers.
11.) 27 Jul 2016 20:43:18
Funny as you have just talked the most about Celtic than anyone else on this page! Well in on your bet RFCinfinity ;P.
20 Feb 2017 10:49:21
Some of you guys are being amazingly harsh on Tommy Wright. The man must have a budget one tenth the size of ours and yet consistently finishes in the top four and he's won a cup.
Saying that, as RonnieR9 says he wouldn't exactly give BR sleepless nights but which genuine candidate would?
20 Feb 2017 10:46:16
Why would he come to us if he's in with the chance of taking Leeds back into the Premiership?
Potentially very good manager though.
15 Feb 2017 16:08:07
Sadly in the 21st century I doubt any manager would snub Liverpool and Spurs but want to take charge at Ibrox or anywhere else in Scotland.
Would be amazed if this happened but has anybody else thought about Robbie Neilson working with a DOF. Thought he did a great job at Hearts and would have no problem working together with a DOF.
24 Jan 2017 15:55:47
BlueBloodGerz We would go down the swanny without King?
This is the guy who was on the board while we went down the double swanny of administration and liquidation without raising a peep.
And voted against the CVA.
16 Jan 2017 13:04:52
Red Bull Rangers?
Asked to give up a European place as their German club is involved?
21 Feb 2017 21:26:53
If Billy Davies is so good why has no other club came in for him?
As for he won't be messed about by directors, well, I agree. That's why he can't seem to last long in any job.
We must look set our sights higher.
15 Feb 2017 16:04:53
Even if he said he spoke with with Forest then that doesn't mean he resigned does it?
14 Feb 2017 11:06:13
I find it impossible to believe that MW resigned that day so if this goes to the courts I would think he may very likely have a case.
If I was going to resign from my job I would be required to put it in writing and would think this would be the norm for football managers but that doesn't seem to have happened.
14 Feb 2017 11:00:47
He also was in charge of Scotland when they beat France in Paris with the McFadden wonder goal which won't look bad on his CV.
13 Feb 2017 11:31:50
And you would have though they might have informed Graeme Murty before Friday night and let him have a bit more time to prepare the team before an important cup tie.
