Any news on new strips? 1st game next week and no new players pictured wearing the official strip! Have we managed to get a better deal yet? Wont buy it if we dont!


1.) 19 Jun 2017 18:44:34
New strips deal, new sponsor, big investment where did it all go guys.
There's rumour and there's wishful thinking.
Think a lot of the comments a week or so ago fall into the latter category

2.) 19 Jun 2017 19:39:49
Embarrassing if we wear last seasons strips next Thursday.

3.) 19 Jun 2017 21:04:59
Probably nonsense but heard we will have a second sponsor on the back of the new strip maybe cashley has come to some sort of deal

4.) 19 Jun 2017 21:56:01
Old or new, it will still be a Rangers strip, like other things old is often beautiful, it's the colours that are fine.

5.) 19 Jun 2017 22:05:33
What's the rush? When they have something to say they will tell us.

Calm your jets!

6.) 19 Jun 2017 23:49:34
There's still a dispute between cashley and the club to the point the vast majority of fans are not buying the strip anyway so if it's not sorted and fans not buying strips what does it matter if they wear last seasons or not it's hardly embarrassing let's get behind the new players and the manager and hopefully get some results in Europe actually enjoy the fact we are there

7.) 20 Jun 2017 23:59:52
As far as I'm aware the sponsorship with 32 Red has been extended on better terms and Puma are entering into final year so will manufacture the 2017-18 kit. Not heard anything regarding the percentage of income we will receive per strip sold via our Sports Direct owned Superstore if it's changed at all I'm afraid it's looks like it's same deal as previous seasons just a minor boost in 32 Red income but I obviously hope I'm wrong and there's been some form of breakthrough with Fat Ash Lie

Rumours around naismith signing won't go away!


1.) 18 Jun 2017 13:34:20
Apart from the player himself saying he is not interested in a return to Scotland at this stage. Pretty much say that is definitive.

2.) 18 Jun 2017 14:05:18
Yeah don't know why this keeps coming up. Hopefully it will go the same way as the Lafferty rumour

3.) 18 Jun 2017 15:08:31
roumors of wee ryan guald from sporting for a year loan.
i would take him

4.) 18 Jun 2017 15:41:55
Bring our own young one's through forget about gauld! That's the reason we never bring anyone through! We should not be buying 21yr old scottish players from other teams when we have on of the best complexes in britain simple

5.) 18 Jun 2017 15:45:45
Wouldn't be a bad signing, delighted with the profile of our Port-Mex mix but a few more home grown players will help. He is talented and would be a good signing imo.
Players and clubs saying they aren't interested means little these days you only have to look at Harry Redknapps comments last week saying he has no interest in JT whatsoever, the following day he reveals he's done all he can to sign him 😂

6.) 18 Jun 2017 18:03:28
when i hear supporters saying we should sign young players like gauld i always think we are missing a trick in terms of bringing through our own youth players

i'm not saying they will all work, but at least give them a chance. Take hardie and barjonas 2 young players in and about our squad just now who i think should get a chance to see what they've got even play them in the league cup

you never know they could be the next durrant rooney etc

To use west ham as an example the players they have brought through is fasting; joe cole lampard terry rio carrick etc etc

Given our current financial predicament it may be just the right time

7.) 18 Jun 2017 19:56:49
I get your point but Terry came through at Chelsea

8.) 18 Jun 2017 21:32:32
I saw the vast majority of these players between the ages of 15-17, as well as Michael Owen, Stevie G and others. Hardie will never be that good and Barjonas has some way to go, but looks a better prospect. Beerman will come through and I had high hopes for Burt, but he doesn't seem to be catching the manager's eye right now.

9.) 18 Jun 2017 22:05:56
Caixinha has revealed in an interview with Portuguese newspaper, O Jogo, that Gauld was offered to Rangers. He was suggested to us on a loan, but I don't think we should have more than 2 loanees for that position and we're already covered, " Caixinha said to O Jogo (printed edition; page 19) He wasn't needed, even if we recognize his lot of quality and competence. Now that should put all Gauld romurs to bed

10.) 18 Jun 2017 22:42:31
Terry was at Weat Ham 11-16yrs

ok he may have 'came through' at Chelsea but he was another product of the west ham youth set up which was the point i was trying to make

All i am saying is our youth set up, certainly in my time going to ibrox last 25-30yrs has been poor for a club of our size - wee barry charlie adam mcgregor hutton aside I can't think too many other real successes and over 25-30 yrs that's just not good enough.

examples of players like ross mccormack not getting a chance then moving on and making a career gets under my skin



03 Jun 2017 15:17:54
Kevin mcdonald from fulham midfield target.


1.) 03 Jun 2017 16:31:56
Brighton have made him one of their main targets, can't see us getting him but you never know!

2.) 03 Jun 2017 16:54:13
not going to happen

3.) 03 Jun 2017 18:28:41
No chance of happening.

4.) 03 Jun 2017 23:21:18
Don't want him anyway go to Brighton



30 Apr 2017 18:31:39
Where is Rossiter?


1.) 30 Apr 2017 18:40:14
In his house I would imagine. Or potentially a kebab house or garage forecourt getting fuel.

2.) 30 Apr 2017 21:00:55
Warburton got big davie weir to bury him somewhere i heard

3.) 30 Apr 2017 20:51:36
Who even is he again another one of the loaf mans injury prone signins this is the exact reason we're in this mess. painfull as it is, but all warburtons players are all league one and two standards. when are people going to realise this? that's how we can't go toe to toe with the tims.

instead of getting players from lower leagues in england we should have looked at home and took some of the best players from other spl clubs. common sense celtic have done it, look at armstrong, prime example we could have got.

Hemmings, stewart, moult, boyce, rooney, crawford etc who are all spl standard instead we just waste money on players from league 1 in england. now fellow bears the names ive mentioned please don't tell me that they wouldn't get a game for us cause they are by far better than what we have, fact.

another player who's on fire jackson irvine why didn't we take him? Instead we got 34 year old joey barton and past his prime krankjar. says it all basically. leave your thoughts folk.

{Ed033's Note - You're correct, 'common sense' celtic would not bother with 'past his prime' krankjar.

4.) 01 May 2017 10:45:04
Barry, posted an opinion last week regarding rumours or signings of players from other teams in our league, there’s no guarantee that these players would be a cut above what we already have. As I said in my post if you put the likes of Garner in the Aberdeen squad, Tav in the Hearts squad and do the same with another few we’d probably sitting here debating whether we should sign these players as they’d probably be flying. We scrutinise our own players because we see them week in week out, a quite rightly so, but we don’t scrutinise the likes of Boyce, Rooney and Crawford the same way we do ours.

5.) 02 May 2017 16:11:03
gazz your right mate the likes of rooney and jack have all had bad spells for their own clubs but if they did that here they would be like mckay getting slaughtered off of our own.
so maybe not all these players would be a good signing but i'd take a chance on one or two of the best of the rest and see if we get lucky but should definitely not get all our signings from here or we will still be the team fighting for second next year



25 Feb 2017 22:59:11
Ross Wilson to become new director of football Monday - working with murty till the end of season and then de boer to come in on a permanent basis in the summer.


1.) 26 Feb 2017 00:31:30
Hopefully but need an intern boss now asap

2.) 26 Feb 2017 00:57:09
aye right murtys out of his depth get alex in

3.) 26 Feb 2017 03:13:30
De boer ruled himself out

4.) 26 Feb 2017 07:29:17
Davie he ruled himself out the Leicester job

5.) 26 Feb 2017 10:00:16
De boer has ruled himself out of every job
Atleast to the summer anyway . After the collapse at inter

6.) 26 Feb 2017 10:06:13
Davie1980 check your facts .

7.) 26 Feb 2017 10:08:52
I would definitely take Ross Wilson but we need to put Murty out of his misery and get him back to his normal position
It's going to be an interesting end to the season
I want to see how many of these players can show the hunger and appetite to play for the club
Over the last few months all I have seen is gutless cowards with no fight.
I keep expecting a reaction to the previous games performance/ result but it never comes it just gets worse

On this form we are likely heading into one of the biggest defeats we will likely have see against that crowd

I think we need a new manager (even interim) this week so we can have a change of direction and reaction before the old firm game

8.) 26 Feb 2017 09:36:06
Ross wilson would be a good appointment as our new DOF but paul mitchell of spurs, IMHO would be better! He's always been my no.1 choice!

9.) 26 Feb 2017 10:10:09
It's supposed to be Martin Yol getting the DOF job on Monday, well that's what someone else says on here

10.) 26 Feb 2017 19:32:25
Coincidence? Barry to come in and take team with Murty till end of season then become No2 to FDB and Wilson DOF?

If we go out and pump marseille 3-0 will fans get behind the manager and team again or will a result like that be brushed off as its only a friendly!? I think a lot of fans have completely written off this team before the season even kicks off.


1.) 21 Jul 2017 15:19:22
RfcChris what if we get pumped 3-0 we will be starting the season on the back foot, every Rangers fan hopes we turn things round and win the league this season but have YOU seen anything that makes you think that this is remotely possible? If we win 3-0 tomorrow then that will be a wee sign that we are perhaps on the right track but judging on what I've seen I'm worried.

2.) 21 Jul 2017 15:30:28
Jyf, there in lies the problem I'm afraid.
There is very little sense of realism amongst so many of our fans. There is virtually no chance of us winning the league this season. If we finish second, and get within 12 points of Celtic, it will be a very successful season in my opinion. We need 6 or 7 of our new signings to be successful this season and add 2 or 3 quality players the season after and aim to get within 6 points of Celtic in that season and so on, and so on.



20 Jul 2017 13:45:38
Charlie adam, alan mcgregor and steven naismith then get a left back and if Fod leaves a new keeper that's it.


1.) 20 Jul 2017 13:54:34
Mcgregor is a keeper

2.) 20 Jul 2017 14:52:19
charlie realy? non starter IMO why go bk for old players we need young blood with future sell on clause, we
not out the woods fiancialy and midfield is a bit heavy with DOF sureley has a few aces up his sleave a statement of intent from him would be nice or did i miss it?

3.) 20 Jul 2017 19:05:44
Would that left back be John Greig going by your list? I reckon we should be pushing the boat out to get Jamie Walker and consign Miller to the bench where a 37 year old belongs. He adds little value if he's not a number 9 inside the box. Worrying comments about Pedro from Barry McKay in today's press and questions his man management skills. We lost our best player because of it and if Foderingham goes that'll be a blow.

4.) 20 Jul 2017 19:30:36
The only one of these I'd bring back is Naismith

5.) 21 Jul 2017 13:21:51
I would have Naismith and McGregor back but that's it no more and definitely not toothless Charle Adam.



17 Jul 2017 20:35:17
Still hearing loads of fans saying sack the manager and he will be gone by christmas. Possibly the greatest Rangers manager ever Walter Smith stated that it takes 3 transfer windows to build a team and give it time to settle. I will give Pedro the time to get a settled squad in play and see how all the players fit into the formation. Remember there is still a lot of deadwood that he needs to get rid of before bringing in more players. I think we need a full back that can play left/ right and I would like to see Walker and naismith.


1.) 17 Jul 2017 21:23:04
A good point or two. I'd forget Naismith and focus on the future. Why do we pay the asking price of Portuguese players and yet play this silly irritating game with Walker? Pay the asking price. Got nothing to do with the players we want to sell. Do the deal and sign the man.

2.) 18 Jul 2017 00:25:30
I for one think we will need patience and not call for the Managers head if we have a couple of bad results early on. Not saying that will happen but it seems 2nd would be accepted and if that's the case then it means that we already know that we will toil.

After the Niedercorn result Pedro has limited wriggle room. I think we will be successful but the first 3 games are hugely important. After Well we play Hearts then Hibs who will giv us a game and if we do come through these with 9 points we must get right behind Pedro.

3.) 18 Jul 2017 06:22:19
Also agree with the statement from Smith that a Manager needs 3 Windows although that is something that you do not see much of especially if the Club is really under performing! Which just makes the opening results so important.
Pedro has spent 9m and most of the Players came because of him! We definitely cannot call for a change after 4-6 weeks. Like I said 2nd spot this Season but give him the Season!

4.) 18 Jul 2017 19:10:47
Bill Struth is by far the greatest Rangers manager ever

5.) 18 Jul 2017 19:11:40
Definitely need a right back and would love two of either Naismith, Weiss or Walker hopefully

6.) 18 Jul 2017 19:28:13
reluctance with Walker is probably to do with giving a rival resources to improve.
Cathro has brought in a lot of players and might get it right with money to spend where he has failed before.

I would give them SFA in fact I still support the idea of an away fans boycott to make the haters hurt a bit longer



06 Jul 2017 14:10:18
The pure hatred and bile spouted by rival fans against our club has gone beyond banter. Never used to notice it much througout the 90s as we blew every team away but now through the banter years and now as our team looks clueless on the park its worrying. Taking it tight the now in work. Everyones a pure hector tax expert know it all fud. Hopefully things get better soon! Ill take a win in the 1st old firm game.




05 Jul 2017 14:55:04
I wrote a post some time ago about an article I read about Conte at Chelsea he changed the formation about 4 or 5 times until he seen the levels he wanted. He landed on the 3-4-3 and his team clicked he didn't change players often this helped build consistency. I understand Pedro has a plan but tick tock because this isn't good enough! I hope i'm wrong but starting to think he might be another silver tongued charlaten.

Not to be wide but i'm sure its 433 but depending on who plays in midfield. Its either 2 holding dms rossiter and Jack or 1 holding dm and 2 further forward. Its an old tactic it doesn't work. We need something new at leat 2 up front build a proper striking partnership like hatley and mccoist prso and novo miller and boyd.

There would be no point in getting through on a technicality. Would just get pumped off the next team. We ain't ready for europe. Luckily the new season is 4 weeks away!
