Sunday papers reporting we're looking at Andrew considine of Aberdeen


1.) 08 Jan 2017 16:52:09
Now all Of the rumors this one will probably have the most truth to it a MW Type player (crap) going by his previous signings especially defenders at the onlt one mentioned who in reality wages we could afford, hope not but Probably true just remember a certain Forrester from the sheep a few seasons back!

2.) 08 Jan 2017 17:21:48
Don't remember a Forrester from the sheep.

3.) 08 Jan 2017 18:03:29
Who and when was Forrester from the sheeo mate?

4.) 08 Jan 2017 19:51:24
He means Ricky Foster. Jeez oh.

5.) 08 Jan 2017 20:25:11
Papabear, hearing that we will definitely sign jon toral (arsenal) and emerson hyndman (bournemouth), both 6 month loan deals and of course both are midfielders. Warbs is also hoping to tie up these 2 pre contract signings for next season, centre half andrew considine (aberdeen) and striker rushian hepburn-murphy (aston villa) . If we can agree a fee with both aberdeen and aston villa then warbs would like to sign both for rangers this month!

Heard Ali crawford would jump at a chance to join us. This never happens but I actually do have a source as I know his girlfriend and a friend of mines is pally with Craig Watson at Hamilton who also said rangers is most likely for Crawford. Think it comes down to whether the interest from rangers is concrete as Crawford has spoke with members of Rangers recruitment team seemingly. If I hear anything else I'll pass it on.


1.) 07 Jan 2017 13:39:59
Of course he'd jump at the chance of joining us, it would like be winning the lottery for him. Sadly, he's nowhere near what we require.

2.) 07 Jan 2017 15:21:44
Agreed he is no were near good enuff!

3.) 07 Jan 2017 16:43:46
Is he really any worse than Holt and Halliday! At least he gets good write ups in the press. The last time Halliday had a game for us was against Celtic last season and he has been living on that since.

4.) 07 Jan 2017 18:45:31
Totally agree tomusa Halliday needs replaced and I would have Crawford over him any day of the week.

5.) 07 Jan 2017 21:21:08
No not at all if haliday played for Hamilton he would stand out like a sore thumb as a great player for them. its a totally different thing playing for rangers and Crawford is not good enuff at all.

Just been thinking and wondering why our attack had been so flat in recent months. Long gone are the incisive one touch penetrating moves and now we have back and forth slow passing. Then it dawned on me when Warburton said (paraphrasing) "that's not us, we don't play like that on the training ground. Need to transfer what we do there to the matches". No wonder our attack is ineffective in spl just now, they train against the same defense that suffered against Kris Boyd's electrifying pace!


1.) 30 Aug 2016 17:07:20
When Holt is out the team it lacks that pace and directness that he produces on a regular basis.

MW team selection has been surprising to say the least using three holding midfielders in games and leaving it late to bring on a decisive playmaker.

Windass and Holt are of that type and will make a significant difference.

2.) 30 Aug 2016 17:34:11
We are missing waghorn up there.

3.) 30 Aug 2016 17:54:18
Give niko a run! The guy has class and vision to make chances, isn't going to get match sharp with ten minute cameos.

4.) 30 Aug 2016 18:34:25
Niko is as sharp as he is going to get.
He is a luxury and an impact sub at best.

I may be wide of the mark here as I'm no employment law expert but I thought given the nature of footballers contracts that it doesn't fall under the standard rules of employment law? Put it this way, you cannot under any circumstance "trade" a standard employee with transfer fees, however you can in football as they are essentially treated as assets on their balance sheets as available for sale assets. The contracts that govern footballers are unique to that industry and unless you know employment law specific to sports players, I'm not convinced they fall under the standard rules. It may very well be easier to punt barton that some believe and I recall Fran Sandaza's case of dismissal which didn't last very long.

I'm not a fan of kiernan as I think his positioning, aerial ability and tackling are all really poor. However the goal last night was not kiernans fault for once. He correctly faced the oncoming attacker as being the nearest defender. Hill should in that scenario track the runner. To be out sprinted by Boyd, sickening stuff!

The line in the Rangers statement "Neither party will make any further statement or comment on this issue. " sounds like a threat to Barton. Wonder if he'll be able to keep quiet for the 3 weeks.

On another note, Barton is unfit as it is so I can't imagine how 3 weeks off would be a good thing as he'll just come back worse. Saw someone mention he should train with the juniors which I agree with to an extent and then remember Joey's history with youth players and cigars.
