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. ".

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.

Dust seems to be settling a little.

Say what you like about Dave King but he has done what he should have with management, has finally released a statement and has addressed some pertinent questions that have been frequently asked.

With regard to the 30million "warchest":

He says 18million has been spent so far, I can see that to be fair.

He goes on to say that he expects to spend over the 30million he originally promised to get us competitive in Europe etc.

It's just my opinion and I know how many feel about the man, however he has kept us going (be that by encouraging investment or dipping into his own) and seems to be sticking with a plan.

With regard to Warburton:

He explained the situation quite clearly, (as you will have read) that the management tried to jump ship, situation changed for them last minute and our board gave them the push.

With that being the case, I appreciate the boards actions and I am hopeful of a fresh start with better results and happier players who can perform consistently!

Hopefully we can kick on with a good result today 👍.

100 percent bang on mate my feelinhs aswell



10 Feb 2017 22:48:12
I was watching a film.

What's going on? BBC stating the all three have resigned?

I know people claiming it was false on the Rangers twitter account but it's a story on the BBC now?


1.) 10 Feb 2017 22:57:19
Just read the club statement.

Looks like Warburton has made a lot of people's minds up for them, hopefully the team stick together and we can find a decent replacement!

2.) 10 Feb 2017 23:13:54
Seems straightforward to me.
They asked to be released, the board accepted. Warbs and co then decide they are not wanting to be released (other options fell through perhaps? )

Effectively Warburton doesn't know what he wanted. No surprise there.

Well I for one am delighted the clueless one has gone and taken Weir with him.

Big DW was a great servant as a player but he has brought nothing to the club as MW's assistant picking up wages for SFA.

Onwards and upwards.

3.) 10 Feb 2017 23:23:20
If story from the board is true that Nottingham forest had approached mw why did we not want compensation mw was still under contract to us.

4.) 10 Feb 2017 23:38:39
Mw and co wanted out and tried to bargain with the board to waive compensation so they could get out quickly. They knew their time was up and tried the easy way out. Tells you everything you need to know about mw and co. Good riddance!

5.) 10 Feb 2017 23:51:44

I can only read into the fact the board had decided that the management team were going at end of season so if we had sacked them WE would have had to pay them compensation but when their agent tried to broker a deal they must have thought they had won a watch. glad the board stuck to their side of the deal on your way MW DW

6.) 10 Feb 2017 23:53:45

Exactly just wonder what the Warburton apologists on here think about the situation. They are very quiet

7.) 11 Feb 2017 02:44:36
In some respects I have sympathy for Warburton, (although what he and his two associates attempted to do by all accounts this week and broker an exit without compensation from Rangers so they could move to Forrest is totally lacking in integrity), since he was given little support by King and even less support by Weir who failed miserably to either improve the defence or instal a Rangers mentality in the team.

8.) 11 Feb 2017 10:24:31
We are only 9 to 10 days away from an answer. Lol



04 Feb 2017 23:08:01
I wonder if I am alone here but i couldn't help thinking "stop going backwards! " while watching that game and many others.

It is far too predictable, we stick to it even when the opposition know where we are going and it looks amateur.

I wouldn't mind that style if it worked but it doesn't, then the other problem is that when someone decides to go long ball (against plan a) they can't make the pass and it ends up off the pitch.

It was a quirky thing to have a manager with only one plan (that seemed to work) in the beginning, that was in the championship and now in the premiership it's not quirky it's an ever increasing problem.


1.) 04 Feb 2017 23:38:27
It's like watching Liverpool. No pace no movement no urgency no runs being made all side to side and slow.

2.) 05 Feb 2017 01:09:15
It's like watching Liverpool? If only - they have played some amazing stuff this season. It is better to have played and lost than have no idea what so ever! If Warburton had half the tactical insight of Klopp and a third of the man management and motivational skills Celtic would be chasing us. Route cause analysis, why is this season a train crash? WARBURTON. The most inept manager in 140 years ably assisted by the most inept assistant manager in 140 years. And yes, that includes Sally - he always knew he was winging it - Warburton thinks he adds value on and off the pitch. Guess Joey B said, "I bet you, you are crap. " MW is not a football man - he is a networker and that is not the same thing. MW is enhanced in his chosen career by being associated with us, "The Famous Glasgow Rangers"; we are sullied by having him in our hallowed GTF! U R 0

3.) 05 Feb 2017 13:15:18
Omg cee, Liverpool before Christmas were superb, prob the best team to watch down south, they had plenty of pace, made plenty runs off the ball, high tempo, high press, with an end product, don't know what football you watch but it's not the same Liverpool I seen.



04 Feb 2017 16:58:16
Better opposition than county and we'd be saying the same as Wednesday.

The lads put a wee bit of effort in but we just don't have it where it matters.

County keeper, Fox was outstanding the three times we managed to test him, our defending was suspect once again and WTF was foderingham doing when playing the ball out?




01 Feb 2017 23:24:54
I took my wee boy to the first game of the championship season in 2014, hearts beat us 2-1.

Have they got 2 goals better while we have stayed the same?

I have many times said how changing the management at this stage is like swapping the driver of a car that is crashing.

It makes no difference; I can't say that anymore, there needs to be a big change in that dressing room.

Either the manager finds some balls and drops a few slack lads or we look at dropping the manager.


1.) 02 Feb 2017 00:23:46

Sorry but your completely wrong if you think changing the manager doesn't make a difference plenty of managers have been replaced mid season and the manager coming in has done much better. If you don't think the manager is going to take the club forward then it makes no sense to hold onto him for another 6 months or longer.

2.) 02 Feb 2017 00:47:11
I agree Bob, time to see wig Warbs has any balls. Drop the pals act. Out for Tav, Kiernan, Wallace, Halliday and Waghorn. Bring in some fringe guys with a bit of fight. Give the big CB from Falkirk a chance (his name escapes me) .
I am no football expert nor do I have the answers on who we bring in. but things need to chnage

3.) 02 Feb 2017 02:46:11
Swansea 👌🏻

4.) 02 Feb 2017 08:32:11
Is it not Bates who we signed from Raith Rovers.

Warburton could be a great manager but his stubbornness to stay with the same tactics is ruining his reputation.

Sutton should come with a health warning ⚠

The guy is literally paid to wind up as many people as possible because it sells papers and gains views.

Can't honestly remember the last thing this guy wrote that I felt compelled to read.

A manager who gets the best from his players is what we all want, Warburton was never that; look at how Dyche has Barton playing for Burnley and compare that to how we had him playing.

I would be happy with a manager who can get them motivated and playing for us.

I think we will struggle to poach another teams manager at this time in the season.
