Rangers midfielder Billy Gilmour is set to sign for Chelsea ahead of his 16th birthday on 11 June, having rejected the offer to stay on at Ibrox.

All the best if he goes, I hope he doesn't regret the decision down the line.


1.) 29 Apr 2017 10:43:42
I really hope I'm wrong, however, I feel he won't reach his potential by going to Chelsea. He's just another 1 of the many many talented kids on there books who spend more time on loan than anything else with very little chance of breaking into first XI.

2.) 29 Apr 2017 11:21:11
Hate to say it but going by the Glasgow Cup Final, he's nothing extraordinary. Tidy, but not exactly the sensation he's being portrayed as. I'd call it 'Pogba syndrome'.

3.) 29 Apr 2017 14:43:24
I really hope your wrong? Why he's jumping ship for a pittance I really hope he ends up at Leyton Orient

4.) 29 Apr 2017 15:26:56
We can't grumble at the reported 500k tbh

5.) 29 Apr 2017 15:29:50
He will be another Ryan Gauld. who? Good riddance if he doesn't want to give 2 years to Gers.

6.) 29 Apr 2017 15:30:17
RR watched him in the youth cup final as well didn't exactly stand out to me either mate.

7.) 29 Apr 2017 15:26:52
Shouldn't be the only one leaving Ibrox. Need a clear out. Take whatever cash we can get for any of them.

8.) 29 Apr 2017 15:35:25
Well said glasgow ranger if he doesn't want to play for us he can leave.

9.) 29 Apr 2017 16:26:10
We get this same string every 3 weeks. The boy and his family are making a major mistake, but if he goes then he does with our best wishes.

10.) 29 Apr 2017 17:10:33
You said that he was leaving before his 16th Birthday and then followed up by if he leaves, so Which one is it? you kind of contradicted yourself there, also i'm am sure unless the rules have changed in the last week or so you can't sign a professional contract until your 16th Birthday so Again that isn't possible which makes me think your guessing all though we all know he is Joining Chelsea by now or should I say Chelsea reserves under 20s or MK Dons on loan cause we all know he won't get anywhere near the Chelsea first team and surely himself and father both know this too but Unfortunately as usually its all about the money as both Gilmour and his family have had there minds turned by money houses and cars all put in on the deal just to rote in the reserves, it s a joke and getting annoying now taking are and other Scottish Clubs youngsters when they are nowhere ready for there first team, Why?

11.) 29 Apr 2017 18:24:57
the pish i saw produced today and were debating billy gilmour let's address the fact our clubs a joke top to bottom we've a squad of gutless imposters we have a manager who can't learn from his mistakes our clubs in a bad place

12.) 29 Apr 2017 18:51:28
Read posts that weren't posted before 10 in the morning and aren't about Billy then Colshy, there are plenty on the banter page addressing the pish on the pitch.

13.) 30 Apr 2017 07:41:27
Saying he didn't stand out in the cup game when he was playing lads 5years his senior is a bit daft. In the u17s he bossed the game and teed up a great goal. The kids a talent, no doubt about it. And is clearly one of our most valuable assets in getting us 500k (pick a 1st team player worth that much right now! ) and once he is sold on for a few mill we will get a small cash injection. A good bit of business for us in my opinion. Plenty more fish in the sea

14.) 30 Apr 2017 07:58:54
Billy should go with nothing but best wishes. It will be tough to stand out in a place like Chelsea but to wish the boy bad luck is harsh as he is just that. a boy remember that guys, just a kid who has probably been advised by loads of people to make this move.

Give the lad a break and wish him well.

15.) 30 Apr 2017 10:05:18
Good luck to him I'm glad we're getting 500k as he didn't boss the 17s game he done one or two good things no stand out it was the Celtic kid who's brother plays for the first team that scored and bossed the midfield



21 Jan 2017 12:10:07
RangersFC XI: Foderingham, Hodson, Kiernan, Hill, Wallace, Halliday, Holt, Toral, O'Halloran, Miller, McKay.

This is what BBC have just posted regarding our interest in Joe Garner:

"Rangers are sniffing around and they want to take Joe Garner, " said Grayson after Preston lost 2-1 to Fulham on Saturday. "We are not looking to sell.

"We don't want to sell anybody but every player has a price. "

Ibrox manager Mark Warburton has been keen to add another striker to his squad.

And he said after Saturday's 2-1 Scottish Premiership win over Dundee: "We are looking for a number of players. We're looking for a striking option and a defensive option. Hopefully we can make some progress in the next few days. ".


1.) 13 Aug 2016 21:04:48
Rafbob, I truly hope we will sign joe garner but I honestly feel he will be too expensive for us to buy, he only just signed a new 3 year contract with pne last season meaning he's still 2 years left on his contract, they will want over the 1 million quid mark for him and I honestly don't think we'll pay that, hope I'm wrong as he looks good and would do well with us especially the way we play and the chances we create.

2.) 13 Aug 2016 21:10:31
Warb15, I agree with what you're saying.

Been getting the impression that we are happy to enquire but with very limited funding for a while now.

Hopefully we can make an exception for this lad and a decent C. B.

3.) 13 Aug 2016 21:11:13
127 apps 49 goals . Do we think that's a good return? I'd take the lad as I think up here he'd rip it up as he's an out and out striker!

4.) 13 Aug 2016 21:39:56
It is a goal every 2.5 games; not a bad goal rate if you look at the level he's playing, I know it isn't premier league but it's better than SPFL standard.

I share your view that he'd do well up here Blackwoodbear.

5.) 13 Aug 2016 21:43:01
Rafbob, W15, given we have limited funds I think it better if we push the boat out on the CD position. Based on everything I have seen we now have a critical need for a quality central defender.

6.) 13 Aug 2016 21:52:07
I can't see us paying in the excess of 1 million for a player.

7.) 13 Aug 2016 21:59:50
Fd, your are 100% right but it looks as though we are further into this deal than any other.

Hopefully a C. B is quietly being sorted behind the scenes and they will announce it soon?

Not holding my breath though lads.

8.) 13 Aug 2016 22:29:31
BWB it's a better goal for game ratio than waghorn had.

9.) 13 Aug 2016 23:35:16
Worrying times ahead then if we can't stump up a million for a player.

10.) 14 Aug 2016 00:47:16
Think he'd be a good signing. I think some money has been there for players but we've been smart with the freebies n can spend money or cf and cb.

11.) 15 Aug 2016 11:25:07
how much would bougy be he said he wants back and is better than anything we have also kyle bartley is estimated at just under 1 million and that boy impressed me when he was here especially when he went through brown!
I think baougy is out of contract and bartley has a year left I think we would be better getting those two paired bougy is only 33 which I think is good for a cb and they both have good pace and can read the game.
its not a rumour its just an opinion!

12.) 13 Aug 2016 22:28:59
He cost £2/ 3million. So rules us out.

13.) 13 Aug 2016 23:54:53
I honestly don't think we have a a centre back lined up.



09 Apr 2016 15:15:12
Waghorn still not fit for the match tomorrow or next week.

The new signings have been great but the merchandise news today is by far the best story related with our club, that I have read for a wee while now.


1.) 21 Jun 2017 17:31:33
Totally agree Rafbob paulineblue72 and ABHABH1 I suppose you will have something negative to say about it .

2.) 21 Jun 2017 17:38:45
Yeah but sadly my 3 kids will all want home and away and i'll treat myself to a home strip omg i'm now poor :) .

EDUARDO HERRERA and Carlos Pena will both be available for Rangers' Europa League first-round qualifier against Progres Niederkorn after meeting today's registration deadline.

Wildcard player can be registered as late as the 28th; Dorrans maybe?

They've been registered but cannot play if all the paperwork (visas) has not been done in time.

"We are fighting genetics and a Scottish diet, " says SFA performance director Malky MacKay.

Cheeky bastard! 😁.

He is not exactly slim him self is he 😂



16 Jun 2017 20:13:46
Ipswich Town have signed striker Joe Garner from Rangers for an undisclosed fee on an three-year contract.

The 29-year-old moved to the Scottish Premiership side from Preston last summer on a three-year deal and scored 10 goals in 37 Rangers appearances.


1.) 16 Jun 2017 20:28:18
We've sold 👏👏 Joey Garner, We've sold 👏👏 Joey Garner.

2.) 16 Jun 2017 20:33:53
No great loss-never a proper Rangers player in my view-just hope we didn't take too much of a financial hit on him!

3.) 16 Jun 2017 20:52:44
Wish the lad all the best. Cannot say he lacked effort and he was far from being a total failure. Do think he was s panic end of window purchase though by Warburton. looks like we lost £1m on the deal.

4.) 16 Jun 2017 23:15:47

Have to disagree he was a total failure. More interested in picking fights with opponents than scoring. Made some stupid challenges and the incident with Jack was as bad as the Lafferty one. Wont be missed and never good enough. Just typical of the rubbish Warburton brought to the club

5.) 17 Jun 2017 00:15:55
I wish him well. He should never have been bought in the first place, just another crazy Weir and Warburton signing!

6.) 17 Jun 2017 01:14:13
At least we got a laugh when he booted Dougie Imrie 😂Quality

Premier League payment to clubs 2016-17
Club (UK live TV appearances in brackets

Total payment (£s)

First-Chelsea (28) 150,811,183

Last-Sunderland (10) 93,471,118

Total 2,398,515,773

Absolutely mental money down there!


1.) 02 Jun 2017 09:45:25
Would like to know where all this money is coming from?

2.) 02 Jun 2017 10:59:05
Yeah and this is what our Sky subscription cash is going towards. Keeping the English league rich while we survive on the scraps. It doesn't help when our negotiator is Neil Doncaster either mind.

3.) 02 Jun 2017 11:05:56

4.) 02 Jun 2017 11:13:20
The bubble has to burst some time- although I have been saying that for at least 10 years. As long as people are prepared to pay ridiculous money to watch it on Sly Sports, it will continue.

5.) 02 Jun 2017 15:54:36
If enough people in scotland cancelled sky and Bt sports subscriptions the money available to Scottish football would soon increase.

The question is, are you happy with the guys Pedro is looking at?

I am personally. A solid CB and decent midfielder; ticks positive boxes so far.

Judging the players on performance and consistency, I would keep Pedro and clear out the deadwood.

Cummings is a wee ned, he'd probably sign for a crate of bucky.

He can stay where he is as far as I'm concerned. There's someone better on all levels, somewhere.

I would happily jump in your boat and see Ashley's contract torn up, but I can't see that happening soon.

Hopefully you're right. 👍

I don't see any change to the deal with our kits happening soon; sports direct seemingly have a water tight deal and we have a few years notice left to run unfortunately.

Take note of the fact that someone like Craig Whyte can be found not guilty; a good indication that Ashley would get off of any accusation of unlawful contracts etc.
