We now need someone that can secure 2nd spot and work wonders with the squad we are left.

Dont think Walter is in the frame.

Hope it isn't Billy Davis.

Thoughts peeps any ideas Prob Big Alex.

Punter

1.) 11 Feb 2017 10:08:17
Id take bug eck and alex rae until the end of the season see how they get on, if anything they will have the team figgting for everything


2.) 11 Feb 2017 10:40:28
Alex rae? Get a grip. ask Walter Smith to get us second. then maybe big eck or i'd have a shot in the dark with alan pardew


3.) 11 Feb 2017 10:50:59
Eck would stabilise the defence stop the dangerous passing at the back and make us difficult to beat but to be honest I would prefer next seasons proposed manager to take over that way he can work with current squad and identify players to stay or go and maybe save some players gers career for example big kiernan can defend if he cuts out the stupid passing with the right coach he may prove to be a talent.


4.) 11 Feb 2017 11:14:58
Whens the last time big eck managed fs


5.) 11 Feb 2017 11:27:34
Alex rae as assistant Chinabairn


6.) 11 Feb 2017 11:58:18
Good call Chinabairn, Pardee could be the type of Manager we need


7.) 11 Feb 2017 12:02:32
@punter - big eck or alex rae? **** me we'd be as well padlocking the gates the now! WS? No thanks. We've now reaped what we've sowed.


8.) 11 Feb 2017 12:12:38
McLeish done very well with Genk who were 4th bottom in their league when he took over, he got them a 5th top finish with the same underachieving players, look what he did with Rangers and Scotland? , be good to have until end of the season but i don't know who would be best to take over full time


9.) 11 Feb 2017 12:49:55
I'd be looking at Pardew, or at a push Sean Dyche.


10.) 11 Feb 2017 13:06:34
Or maybe pochitinio or anceloti can I visit your planet or do I need some sort of visa lol 😁


11.) 11 Feb 2017 13:16:59
ahahahhaha sean dyche, cheers for the laugh scottish87


12.) 11 Feb 2017 13:34:48
Can someone please tell me why they don't want Billy Davies considerred? What has he done that is so bad? Surely his private life is just that and as long as he is good at football coaching. Thoughts please.


13.) 11 Feb 2017 12:30:13
Mibi Alex Rae might no b the best choice as a number 2 but he would bring the passion and the belief back good shout


14.) 11 Feb 2017 14:05:08
I agree with you dunbar blue! Billy davies is a better coach than any of them! This wee guy is a terrific coach and is made of steel! Forget his private life, within reason of course!


15.) 11 Feb 2017 14:17:18
Hope not if he was to get the job I would not be back remember fellow bears let's not condemn mw before getting the facts. mr king has a lot to answer for he was The one quoting figures about how much money he would inject


16.) 11 Feb 2017 14:18:44
Billy Davies has failed every time he tried to get promotion from the Championship where is his track record of success. Likewise Pardew as he has failed at every club he has been at. I cannot understand the fascination with either.


17.) 11 Feb 2017 16:01:07
Think billy davies won playoffs with derby county! Guy has a great track record in english championship! Which is arguably the most competitive league in europe!


18.) 11 Feb 2017 17:09:17
It's an outside shout but I would love someone like Tim Sherwood. He currently has a directors role at Swindon. And I imagine he would have clauses that allow him to take up managers roles with little compensation. I am pretty uninspired by the names being mentioned so far. Whoever it ends up being, he needs a lot more backing in the transfer windows.


19.) 11 Feb 2017 18:45:55
Dunbar Blue, you say forget Davies private life but we are Rangers, not them in the East End! His friendship with Tommy Sheridan is well documented. Sheridan is a vile individual and unfortunately for Davies mud sticks. If you sleep with dogs you get fleas. We have enough issues with our credibility given the bunch of scoundrels that has been associated with our club over the past five years!
There are plenty of quality managers that would take the Rangers job that would do a good job and that portray the appropriate image for a Club of our standing.


20.) 11 Feb 2017 18:46:48
Im up for billy davies being given a chance. at least till end of season Bears?
McLeish has had his chance. wee billy might b pals wi perma tanned tommy but he could be worth a punt. FDB long term could b great if billy don't cut it. We no wat mcleish is about. Different era.


21.) 11 Feb 2017 19:20:54
I guess we must come from different generations. I want a manager that warrants respect both on and off the park. Sorry but Davies is not that person.


22.) 11 Feb 2017 20:17:31
What has davies done to merit such moral outrage TOMUSA? I mean that sincerely. i have no time for Sheridans politics but i'm not aware of davies being accused of any nefarious criminal activity. unless u can tell me otherwise mate?


23.) 11 Feb 2017 20:45:13
Tony pulis would be a good choice but to be honest do u think any of the names mentioned would want to come to Ibrox with the mess we are in a chairman who has promised so much but failed to deliver.


24.) 11 Feb 2017 21:18:19
Mols, you say billy davies has failed as a championship manager in england? Do you know anything what davies has achieved? Let me educate you on billy davies mate. He got derby county PROMOTED, YES PROMOTED from the championship to the premiership, while he was their manager! He took every team he managed to the play offs at the very least.

Preston and notts forest twice! Check it out for yourself! He holds the all time record in the championship in history, of having WON the most manager of the month awards! His record up until his last few months with forest in his 2nd spell there, has been superb, with all his championship clubs!

He had a disagreement with the forest board over promised transfers! Hope that answers the billy davies haters, of the wee man's ability when folk don't know what they're clearly talking about!


25.) 12 Feb 2017 02:34:48
4everinroyalblue, I suggest that you read excerpts from Sheridan's perjury trial or the various Press Reports at that time. Davies would simply destroy the little credibility that we have left if he was given the job when there are numerous other candidates with significantly better credentials out there.


26.) 12 Feb 2017 17:16:52
Nic

You are correct he did get promotion with Derby but was sacked very quickly in his premiership career. Ultimately he has failled to make the grade at the top level and has track record of falling out with his various boards


27.) 12 Feb 2017 17:19:05
David Wagner. no harm in asking.


28.) 12 Feb 2017 22:31:50
Super I am well aware of his record but must admit I had forgotten that he had got Derby promoted to the premiership. It has to be said he is considered not good enough to manage in the premiership as he has worked there for half a season. I am not aware of his private life so have nothing to say on this.

The fact that he has got to the play offs so often with a great chance of promotion only to fail when it really matters, I consider to be consistent failure

We are allowed to disagree on this. I mean the man no harm and my opinion like yours really means nothing but not for me


29.) 13 Feb 2017 00:26:35
What planet are u on Mols. Pardew took west ham up. took newcastle into Europe for the 1st time in 20 years. took Palace and West Ham to FA Cuo finals. and West Ham were seconds away. denied by a Gerrard wonder goal. of beating European champions at the time. in fact 5 years ago when at newcastle he won LMA Manager of the year award. Top award in England for a manager. he'd find the SPL a piece of pish


30.) 13 Feb 2017 10:42:11
Yes Tom the media will be rubbing their hands if that wee sleaze ball gets the job

DK has his head buried in the south African Sand.
Part time chairman isn't hacking it.

We need a leader a true leader Rangers are rudderless i feel at the moment.
We need passion, a souness type figure head . someone to respect even a Souness repeat of sorts what he did in the 80.s
Would like to see him involved with the club again with his mate Kennedy.

Punter

1.) 10 Feb 2017 10:46:00
i wonder why we don't hear from Dave King or any of the other board members? it doesn't fill me with confidence not hearing from them, i think they should be more open with their fans like they said they would


 

 

02 Feb 2017 06:30:26
3rd is looking realistic now.
if we do finish 3rd, time to move to the next level manager wise, if possible!! Billy Davis isn't the answer either.
King is guilty also as much as the So called manger, Team is all over the place back to basics please.

Punter

1.) 02 Feb 2017 07:01:52
We are now looking for a "short-term" fix to stop Celtic

Will any new manager have "time" after his appointment to sign players in the summer 2017 window or must he wait to sign players in the summer of 2018 - (if he is sacked in spring 2019 then Celtic will have racked up another 2 titles (8?)

Time is running - out of course Aberdeen or Hearts might stop them for us?


2.) 02 Feb 2017 06:51:49
Which manager is the answer then punter?


3.) 02 Feb 2017 07:53:10
Frank de boer get him now


4.) 02 Feb 2017 08:30:45
Supercooper

Well it certainly isn't your God Warburton who again showed how inept he is when faced with a big game away from home. Same players picked making the same mistakes, defence in total disarray, midfield chucking it and the strikers getting starved of service. That team yet again lost the plot in the second half and it could easily have been 5 or 6. We made a very average team who were slaughtered on Sunday look good. Still never mind I'm sure you still back him and think he is moving forward and the team is progressing.


5.) 02 Feb 2017 08:36:26
Supercooper are u still defending the indefensible?


6.) 02 Feb 2017 15:35:02
Bigblue ayr, i was at the game last night and i honestly admit it was one of the worst performances i've witnessed, in 42 years of going to watch rangers mate! That performance is NOT on! Warburton has at the very least 3 big major decisions to make, for our game against ross county on saturday!

He MUST drop tav, halliday and kiernan! I've been on here saying halliday gets an easy ride compared to others, many times! If warburton remains stubborn and doesn't make these big decisions then he will lose his job, probably at the end of the season!

IMHO if danny wilson is he has to start, hodson has to start, the DM is a tough one, as who to play there instead of halliday! Warburton should maybe look at changing the system to sort that position out! Maybe a 3-5-2 so we have less space there, thus more protection for the centre halfs!


 

 

29 Jan 2017 11:41:17
If we miss out on 2nd spot in the league who should get the blame?

DK
MW
DK & MW
Players
DK,MW & PLayers.

im worried as it is a possibility.

Punter

1.) 29 Jan 2017 12:04:05
2nd or 3rd doesn't make a big diff


2.) 29 Jan 2017 12:08:53
For me, no one. We assembled our team 18months ago and got in a relatively inexperienced manager. 6 months ago, we added even more players to the squad, most of which didn't work out. King did not promise £30m for players. He said the club needs as much as £30m investment (not all of which will be on the playing squad), some of which will come from him. To date, king and his pals have invested over £12m so far. No other way to get money into a corporate structure except through loans or a rights issue which was on hold. We just got promoted to spl where Celtic have went on a record breaking run. What can we possibly do to make them drop points against the likes of St johnstone or hamilton etc? We've had draws that once we improve will become wins. They've been on a run of form that hopefully won't repeat itself again. Had we been up against last seasons Celtic and some of our draws this season were wins, the point gap would be much much smaller. Aye, we make mistakes and Celtic are making none, but this season is a fluke season. We will improve and are improving.


3.) 29 Jan 2017 14:33:34
Yes true words, i don't see them repeating this season and we surely will improve for next, second place finish then we will need, NEED a better standard of player, otherwise qualifying for europe was for nothing in the first place, i predict a good season next season and surely it will happen


4.) 29 Jan 2017 17:10:26
Punter, For me it is quite simple. Warburton and Weir.

DK (and others) has made funds available although not just for players.

Players can't be blamed for not being gpood enough. Most are just journeymen.

Warburton has had a lot more than any other manager (outwith them) and has wasted over £2 mil on Garner and MOH.
He picks the team and sets the system, continues to stick by a few empty jerseys meaning we are men down before we start.
Big Weir? Well you would think he could organise a defence but obviously not so what is he getting paid to do? .

Blame will lie at the door of W and W


5.) 29 Jan 2017 16:50:54
Need to get real about things people will mention the wage budget but this is a squad of players who have only been bonding for about a year and 2nd dpot would be a amazing finish considering how well aberdeen and hearts have been of late. can't be delusional like some fans who are thinking 2nd place is unacceptable.

There is a lot of talent in our squad we just need that run of great performaces to get the confidence up dor the start of next season, then bring in a few players (2 strikers preferably a big poacher a winger and a centre half) and 2nd should more or less be guaranteed next season


6.) 29 Jan 2017 18:16:09
Papabear how can you say the season is a fluke Celtic have not fluked one game this season and have you stopped to think for one second that Celtic are adding to there squad Eboue for 2.8 million and will continue to add quality rather than quantity .

So surely Celtic are improving as a team as well, and unless the signing policy at rangers changes to actually building a team instead of plugging the gaps with 2nd rate players who can't get a game at there clubs then this season will be on repeat for next season and seasons to come.


7.) 29 Jan 2017 19:24:51
Dth100, I get what u are saying and understand your frustration. The reason why I think it's a fluke season is this is Celtic's best ever start since Lisbon lions (their best ever team) . Compare to Celtic of last season and it's a huge difference for them. They've made 3 notable changes, a new manager, Sinclair and dembele. Remember that player they signed for £3m odd, bangura was it? Didn't work out. It just so happened this season it did work out. I don't think Celtic have fluked any games as they've been the better team for most of them, but their season as a whole is a fluke, a one off. I doubt it'll be repeated again next season and I doubt they'll make any further signings that'll have the same impact on them as Sinclair has had.


 

 

10 Jan 2017 21:35:59
Thought of the day.

Would it have been a bad thing if Ashley had taken control of Rangers.

Hes got deeper pockets then DK.

Ashley would have put money where is mouth is i think.

Don't shoot me guys i'm just thinking out loud.

if DK doesn't have the money or wish to put more in then i say go.
i still think he's trying to recoup his £20m he lost.

Punter

1.) 10 Jan 2017 21:43:18
Ashley has received stick for years at at Newcastle for not forking out the money he has &C as for DK he won't spend big until fat mike is out the picture cause it's too big a leap of faith, once he's gone I think we will see money finally being put in


2.) 10 Jan 2017 21:45:27
DK is probably £30-35m in total down on his Rangers dealings over the years as we stand today. There is currently no realistic opportunity to recover what he has spent. Please tell me how we will make any money from a club with no revenue stream and no one to buy his shares. The share price has been 27p for the last 18 months


3.) 10 Jan 2017 21:43:13
How is he going to recoup his 20 million we are skint. Ask newcastle has ashley put his money were is mouth is. Only this season has he spent money. Are ask the poor people who work for sports direct if ashleys is a good boss


4.) 10 Jan 2017 23:14:28
Recoup it from where exactly Punter? Apart from season ticket sales there is no access to a major revenue stream. No European football means very little sponsorship money, no larger tv or prize money and we have no merchandising money to speak of. let's say Wallace and Garner are on 10K a week (just for talking sake) those 2 players are costing over 1 million accross 52 week contract. Now add up the rest of the first team, development squad, youth teams, coaches, physios, kit men, groundsmen, scouts, dinnerladies, security, travel costs, players accomodation etc. Not to mention running costs of Ibrox and Murray Park and Matchday expenses. So yes I don't like where we are financially compared to Celtic at the min but it grates on me when people say King etc haven't spent any money in the club. There's more to investing in the club and getting it back on its feet than transfer fees.


5.) 11 Jan 2017 01:33:12
Parky. add up what king "ect" has put in. "Ect" more than king you'll find. The question was about king v ashley though. King aquired rangers and also crippled the club by his actions.

I'd actually like anyone to pick apart every piece of account data that is actually available. Add soft loans, season tickets and the wee cut of any merch, fan donations etc. Line that up against posted losses and the difference may be your figure. I might be wrong but has DK ever said exactly what he personally has spent since taking over till now? He hasn't in my mind but I may of missed it. There are hoards of fans screaming for his head for not spending a penny and to my eyes he hasn't and hasn't replied or publicly defended himself with a counter quote or any real sum of money.

Do some extensive reading on how he aquired rangers. How he encouraged starvation of ticket sales and encouraged the company to be delisted, sorry for a nomad to be brought in. His failed alleged search for a nomad was nothing more than smoke and mirrors. For a guy that is an international business man you and many others have been sold down the river by him doing "ooh a didnae know that wiz gonnae happen" routine.
Wake up


6.) 11 Jan 2017 01:47:08
Mols
30-35m over the years down? He was ment to of been a 20m investor back in the day. Do you honestly think he made nothing? I'd say he made a stack through loophole accountancy. Or when things started to go wrong murray kept quiet and threw him under a 20m pound bus? Take your pick.


7.) 11 Jan 2017 06:20:36
I'm not 100% about this but I don't remember Ashley ever being interested in actually owning Rangers.


8.) 11 Jan 2017 06:55:10
Parky, the last two agm's he's tried to bring in new share issues but failed, that could be a way of getting some of the £20m back.


For a chairman that's absent 90% of the time he's failed to live up in my book.
He just told us what we all wanted to hear when he was taking over.
Smokin mirrors.

As for Ashley we will never know what could have been. Ashley aligned himself with some dead beats that was his mistake ie green etc


9.) 11 Jan 2017 08:06:53
Rglen8

I like you have no conclusive proof for my opinions, but have read extensively on al aspects of Rangers ownership since Craig Whyte set the pressed the button for destruction.

I do honestly think that DK has made nothing from Rangers to recover his original investment and his more recent investments.

As you put it I think he was thrown under the £20m bus. As I have noted on this pages a number of times where is the evidence of his mechanism for return on investment through accountancy loophole or otherwise

The same cannot be said about CG or MA who have creamed of between them millions from a Rangers over the last 4 years. There is definite proof of that


10.) 11 Jan 2017 08:09:29
Ashley doesn't invest in teams, he loans them money. or that is what I'm lead to believe. he hasn' actually invested money into Newcastle, instead he loans it and gets it back, eventually. I'm sure newcastle are in 100m+ debt to him.


11.) 11 Jan 2017 08:12:55
Ask a Newcastle fan - remember they are/ were milking the fans.

Otherwise who are you Punter? Ashley or his agent?


12.) 11 Jan 2017 08:18:52
Are you Derek lambias? Mike Ashley is scum, lowest of the low. Even if he didn't have money he would still be a class a ****. Do we really want a man like that? Remember how he screwed us with the 5 loans?


13.) 11 Jan 2017 08:28:44
Onlyshowaround

I agree completely All of the clubs in England are in huge debt but are slowly clawing it back through the sky deal. Celtic are the only exception as through good management, timing and a slice of luck are probably one of the only clubs who are essentially debt free.


14.) 11 Jan 2017 08:33:42
Ashley is a clever businessman who sails close to the wind on most of his deals. Just look at the shoddy way he treats his employees at Sports Direct. He saw an opportunity when the 'alleged' crooks were running the show at Rangers and he took it. The contracts put in place before he lost control look dubious at best but by the looks of things it will take most of the six years remaining on the notice period before he is sorted out in Court.

There are other questions to be asked, in particular regarding his 'dual control' over Newcastle and Rangers. I have to ask the question, why has the English FA not taken action or is it simply that they are hoping Newcastle return immediately to the EPL and their problem goes away.

None of this as pact of the current shambles has anything to do with King albeit that I do not believe a word of what he says in terms of transfer funding.

We are where we are and the most frustrating thing for me remains, that the man that initially conned the support has pretty much walked away without any action taken against him. David Murray, in cahoots with Bank of Scotland, knew exactly what was being done when the Club was handed over to Craig Whyte who just happened to be another client of the Bank. Even a half intelligent Risk Manager would have seen that Whyte did not have the wherewithal to acquire Rangers never mind a captain of Industry and the expert Bankers within the BoS. For me it was all a scam from day one! Of course the Establishment in Scotland will neatly brush any wrong doings under the carpet just as they have done in the past with other football scandals!


15.) 11 Jan 2017 08:56:14
If Ashley was interested in making Rangers a force again why did he and his mates on the board at the time agree to the kit deal if the success of the club was important to him would it not have been better to have a contract which at least put some money back into it instead of taking every penny he could get how can King get his money back since we were relegated to the bottom tier of the league we have lost money year on year so instead of taking any money out he is part of a board that are putting money in just to keep the lights on no individual or group will invest in us with the fat man strangling the life out of the club this will continue for the six years that are remaining on these fat man contracts so it pains me to admit it but I can't see how we can stop Celtic getting to ten in a row or even eleven twelve or more we just have not got the money to compete unless we are hugely lucky in transfers or we can pick up top class young players and turn them into top class players we have full houses every home game our only source of income and that is not enough to break even we are paying a fortune to fight in the courts to try and turn these Ashley contracts into a deal that at least gives the club some money I was at shareholders meeting and they tried to get a share issue passed where they didn't have to offer shares to all existing shareholders so if it had been passed Ashley and that pair from Greenock who backed the old board and Ashley would have not been offered shares the diluting their grip on the club but that didn't get enough votes so we are stuck in this mess at least till next years AGM then I hope it gets passed


16.) 11 Jan 2017 09:42:43
Thinkaboutit

Didn't get enough votes due to a so called club legend not bothering to vote


17.) 11 Jan 2017 09:53:15
that's not even a debate!
king has done nothing but try to get us out of a crippling contract with Ashley and Ashley is bleeding us dry .

one trying to save us and one trying to end us hmmmmm I wonder which one i'd rather have in charge!

"IDIOTS"


18.) 11 Jan 2017 09:56:21
Stewie25
Yes that was a strange decision only he can explain that it's two years in a row the motion has been defeated last time by less that 1% but it pains me that some fans still see Ashley as a possible saviour when he is up there with the people who have taken the lions share out of our club at the old firm game as we come in from opposite end I had to pass the Sports Direct shop (£1 a year rent yes he has our interests at heart) and still fans were in it buying kit why don't they just pop £50 in an envelope and send it to The Fat Man care of Newcastle FC that's who gets the profit from the sale not us


19.) 11 Jan 2017 13:16:19
Perhaps McCoist is still on Ashley's payroll! You never know, Ally seems to like money more than anything except the women!


20.) 11 Jan 2017 15:26:52
Ranger and cee.

im just a concerned Rangers fan nothing more. plus i like to think-out loud lol


21.) 11 Jan 2017 18:54:41
Punter if you believe that King could take 20 million out if a share issue then you are clueless. Also, the board have successfully passed resolutions at the last 2 AGMs for a share issue. What they have failed twice at however, is a resolution to have a share issue offered first of all exclusively to new investors. Thus trying to exclude the likes of Ashley and Easdale and so dilute their shareholdings in the company and so their influence when it comes to voting rights.
We know exactly what Ashely would be like as an owner. Look at Newcastle Utd. No investment, but loans that he is owed back to the tune of close to 130m. St. JAMES Park is festooned with Sports Direct advertising that he doesn't pay the going rate for. Look at how he treats his workers at his companies. Rangers is more than Football Players. There are people there on normal wages with everyday mortgages and bills to pay. Do you think they would like this man as their boss? Henis a business man who is out for himself. He is not an idiot so your comment of 'he aligned himself with dead beats' is a rediculous one. He knows exactly what he is doing every step of the way with his dealings with our club and none of it has Rangers best interests at heart.


22.) 11 Jan 2017 19:40:51
Ok rglen8. In May '15 King through his Company New Oasis Asset Ltd loaned the club £1.5m. In December '15 a further £3m loan facilty was made available to the club by New Oasis of which £2.2 was drawn down. The remaining £0.8 credit remained available to the club. that's an interest free loan of £4.5m that King has made available to the club.
Also on March '15 Douglas Park, John Bennet and Paul Murray made a loan totalling £0.75m between them available. In December '15 they made a further loan of £1.7m between them available to the club. that's £2.45m between the 3 of them.
Also in March '15 George Letham, George Taylor, Andrew Ross, Barry Scott and Scott Murdoch made a loan totalling £1.5m between them available.
In December '15 the same 5 men made a loan totalling £2.375 between them available to the club. that's £3.875m between 5 men.
So 8 men have loaned the club a total of £6.325m between them. King has loaned the club £4.5m himself. So you are right, the 8 'etc' have loaned slightly more than the single King.

Parky no need to get personnel ie clueless comment. i never said i was in the know . just thinking out loud maybe this maybe that.

You seem to be very pro King!

Perhaps if he talked to the fans more then he would get more support.
DK can't tell us everything, but least engage with us.
Ie tell us how it is with regards to the current transfer window tell us the cold hard truth.

Punter what I meant was that it was a clueless comment to suggest that our Chairman would take money out of any share issue for his own pocket. I am pro King and Murray and the rest in respect of the people who were in control of our club before. People who did take money out the club by various different methods. I acknowledge that King has made some dubious comments, like front load investing, mentioning £30m and his childrens inheritance. However he and the other investors/ directors have made millions available to the club to try and get us back on an even keel. It annoys me when people only equate transfer kitty as investment in the club (i'm not saying you are one of those people) and say that King etc have not spent any money. Well they have. He may not be the long term answer for our club but he is better than what we have had in the recent past. Sorry for any offence.

Ashley in charge with lambias and the sleezdales, give me strength. Where were you two years ago punter? When I read your post I thought surely that's a wind up and you must be a celtic fan doing a bit of fishing. Anyway that's my bite😩

Onlyshowaround you've hit the nail in the head mate! that's exactly what mike ashley does! I've got a good few pals who are newcastle to the core and they tell me exactly the same as you put it! Maybe with the exception of this season with rafa as manager now! My geordie pals despise him just like we despise him! Newcastle as i've stated on here many times, are my favourite english club and he will never put me off liking newcastle utd or the geordie fans! In saying i only have and ever will support ONE football club, THE FAMOUS GLASGOW RANGERS! My focus will always be on them and hope we/ dave king can find a way of getting rid of mike ashley for good! Then get back to selling and making millions from our kit sales, with the money going directly into the club!

none of them


2.) 06 Jan 2017 08:33:20
Erm. Lee Wallace, Danny Wilson and Kenny Miller did play in Walter Smith teams! and a young Miller also played in Advocaat teams which were packed with top class internationals.


3.) 06 Jan 2017 08:35:07
Lee wallace, barrie mckay obviously danny Wilson who played for Smith lol! How many of Celtics team would get in? Roberts, brown, dembele?


4.) 06 Jan 2017 08:47:33
Which Walter team are you are talking about the one after PLG left it's unfair Walter was given a transfer budget of £15mill to sort the team out we just don't have that sort of money even if we did transfer prices have went through the roof due to the TV deal down south and it wouldn't buy much so we now have to accept where we are and stand together


5.) 06 Jan 2017 09:27:59
Sorry but a god few Celtic players would get into that team, it's ok to say they have good players cee


6.) 06 Jan 2017 10:56:51
So name them?


7.) 06 Jan 2017 11:29:53
For everyone that has named lee Wallace as playing in a Walter smith team, correct me if I'm wrong but it was McCoist that signed him after smith left was it not?


8.) 06 Jan 2017 14:11:35
Forfarger

Your right Wallace was signed by McCoist and never played under Smith

If it was the case about going bust why bring in a new manager, surely you would have kept going with Murty in charge until season end.

I think Ashley has parked his tanks on the Ibrox turf for a reason. he can play the long game Can King and co?

£80 = £4m approx 50,000 season tickets. That would pay for the lost revenue from sports direct, roughly.

Pains me to say we were a shambles last night. two problem area never addressed DM and CD.

Parky, the last two agm's he's tried to bring in new share issues but failed, that could be a way of getting some of the £20m back.


For a chairman that's absent 90% of the time he's failed to live up in my book.
He just told us what we all wanted to hear when he was taking over.
Smokin mirrors.

As for Ashley we will never know what could have been. Ashley aligned himself with some dead beats that was his mistake ie green etc
