I was reliably informed today that FDB is boards top target as Murtys replacement, however, another name that is being considered is Graham Potter. Neither of those names fill me with much hope tbh. FDB brand of football won't work with the calibre of player we have and can attract.

1.) 20 Apr 2018 15:22:08
What's his brand? And who is your source Scotty?

2.) 20 Apr 2018 15:24:16
Any one reliably informed from his source. Some amount of leeks at Rangers and all the info ends up on here PMSL Take a day off

3.) 20 Apr 2018 15:27:03
Be better off with Harry potter

4.) 20 Apr 2018 15:37:39
De Boer has a philosophy that he sticks by, it worked at Ajax and has failed everywhere else. The way he sets a team up and the passing style they play would fail in SPL.
My source is a development coach. I caught up with him this morning and thought I’d share it on Rumours page, think some need to chill the f*ck out lol mind this is a Rumours and not a Facts page. Again FDB name might be getting mentioned to sell season books. Potter def wouldn’t do that!

5.) 20 Apr 2018 16:01:59
Both big gambles and not sure that we can attract either However this is the Calibre of manager that most fans crave and we need to unite for next season. For me, I’d prefer Steve Clarke if he could get us working as well as he has with Killie this year plus sprinkle in some transfer dealings I think we could be a good side at this level. The defence needs serious work but our goals tally this season is decent and there is definitely something to work with there for a good coach.

There are 102 points to play for outwith the old firms lads and while we look miles off Celtic judging by last Sunday we will be defined by our results against the rest next season.

6.) 20 Apr 2018 16:57:09
I'd love De Boer to work - but he'd need to have a plan B in matches where the total football isn't totalling it. Not sure if he's programmed with a plan B though.

That said - a dutch coach would be the perfect excuse for an orange away kit. so I'm all in. Bring on De Boer!

7.) 20 Apr 2018 17:12:02
Whoever comes in as manager it will be the biggest name we can afford and the one that will get bums on seats again. The usual from this board. Also whoever comes in has a helluva work to do. The champions league money Celtic will likely coin in again puts them another 5 years ahead of us. So unless the new manager can work miracles or another wealthy Rangers fan with money to burn comes in we are still I hate to say it miles behind them. I am getting sick of the comments or lack of from the current board. The direction of the club is awful. De Boer is the name I’m hearing as well. Rangers man, big name equals bums on seats whether its the right choice or not.

8.) 20 Apr 2018 17:18:35

So what your saying is that FDB who hasn’t been offered the job will fail already? What players would he bring in that would fail? No one knows what kind of players he would attract to sign so to say he would fail is utterly ludicrous.

9.) 20 Apr 2018 17:53:11
Tbh I completely forgot about grahame potter but he'd be a great choice. What he's done for that team with their budget is nothing short of a miracle.

10.) 20 Apr 2018 18:06:06
Bindo I don’t believe we have the financial clout to match what FDB would need to even attempt to bring the Dutch football philosophy into Scottish game. Personally I think we need an old school approach and a coach that can improve what we have and add a few decent players. It would be someone in mould of Warnock or I’d be happy with current St Mirren manager with Walter Smith in a mentoring capacity.

11.) 20 Apr 2018 18:51:23
Glenn middle anyone

12.) 20 Apr 2018 19:52:51
Never heard of him 2017

13.) 20 Apr 2018 20:53:05

Fair enough mate however I think he might be able to attract some players we might not have got with another Manager. He had torrid times at Inter and Palace however I think he would be a good choice.

14.) 20 Apr 2018 21:01:20
Think he meant Glenn Hoddle, for me that’s a massive no, far too long out of management and will know next to nothing about Scottish football.

15.) 20 Apr 2018 21:32:42
Graham Potter would be a good choice. His team will want to hang on him



28 Feb 2018 10:28:40
I think Morelos will go in the Summer and though some may disagree, I reckon he is replaceable. We will try and get Goss for around 1 million, the lad is loving the game time and life here. 👍🏼 Next year we will challenge and go head to head with them.

1.) 28 Feb 2018 10:54:55
Qpr won't sell Goss for a million

2.) 28 Feb 2018 12:45:03
We will be looking at 3+Million for Goss. Which I would 100% pay. he is top notch. Especially if we can get a fee similar to paid for Pena, and some money back on Herrera.

3.) 28 Feb 2018 12:47:27
He might be replaceable but he’s certainly a talent and hopefully he goes on to reach the very top in the game .
The guy does a lot more than just score goals he holds up play and gets stuck right in.

4.) 28 Feb 2018 13:09:41
Sorry for another negative comment but there's no way we're getting any money back from Pena. He'll be back in Glasgow in the summer unfortunately

5.) 28 Feb 2018 13:28:25
To think we could have had Goss, Murphy, Docherty and Cummings for the approx 5 million spent on Pena and Herrera. Goss 3mil, Murphy 1 million, both Docherty and cummings 600k each. I believe Cummings loan with option to buy is 600k. Absolute Sickening.

6.) 28 Feb 2018 14:42:50
Pena will not be back in the summer as he is on a 12 month loan started in january

7.) 28 Feb 2018 15:46:57
sorry guys - still to see the 'Cummings effect', can't see him working well with Morelos and gets lost in games. Until he adapts to the speed of the higher leagues he's in trouble.

8.) 28 Feb 2018 15:51:53
Well he'll be back in months then. He's been as useless at Cruz Azul as he was with us. there's no way they'll buy him

9.) 28 Feb 2018 17:51:05
I agree I just don’t see what Cummings brings to the team he couldn’t lace Morelos, s Boots

10.) 28 Feb 2018 18:31:47
Pena won't be back here until next jan he signed a 1 year loan deal. there's no option to send him back early either plus if he came back he would be sitting in the under 20s squad rotting away Sean Goss should be made a priority signing in the summer QPR have broke some financial fair play rules they have fines to pay and they need to sell some players to even it out. he's not getting a look in down there they clearly don't rate him you can see how good the boy is so we have a decent chance especially if he pushes for it as well. If we can get morelos to sign a new deal and he scores more goals and goes to the world cup and scores his vslue will go up substantially

11.) 28 Feb 2018 19:22:58
They can terminate the loan at any time and he isn't exactly setting the Heather alight over there.

12.) 28 Feb 2018 21:44:30
on the flip side Stuarty maybe they sell other players on bigger wages to free up money for fines and give younger players a chance? just a thought. could work both ways

13.) 28 Feb 2018 22:32:26
Pena can go eat beans he blew his nose on Gers shorts sack the arse Morelos is only going to improve but if we can cash in tae bring Cummings Murphy goss and a couple moe quality’ signings plus get rid o the Mexican 2 then it’s a deal worth taking

14.) 01 Mar 2018 09:46:47
im sorry but i wouldn't sign cummings for what i have seen.



17 Feb 2018 09:54:21
11M bid expected for Morelos and it's 50/50 in terms of being accepted, it's a full up front payment and Morelos is keen on the move. I hope we accept it, we have options in final third that can still secure 2nd spot.

1.) 17 Feb 2018 10:28:17
I totally agree, 11m paid upfront with a sell on clause. We have to realise we will always be a selling club moving forwards. He’s a class wee player and we got him for 1m plus 10% sell on, so that’s a tidy profit. Cummings can fill the void no problem

2.) 17 Feb 2018 10:31:56
IF it really is £11m, got to sell Morales, I really like him but that's to good a deal. Still have nagging doubts someone really has bid that for him though

3.) 17 Feb 2018 10:44:08
11 million, a superb offer, certainly a lot of money to turn down. Maybe worth cashing in now.

4.) 17 Feb 2018 10:47:51
We can't surely say no to 11mill. Don't get me wrong AM is a great wee player with loads more development in him. However to make a 10 mill profit in only 7 months would be tremendous business!
Yes he could stay. go on to world cup and score a few and we could name our price or he could get injured suffer poor form and his value fades.
We r a business guys and the board have a duty to do the best value they can for all shareholders etc. They have done great so far koing 6 7 8 mill bids etc. Time to sell and wish him well. With a 10-15% sell on fee in the deal we can make more. Time to take the gift horses money. Thoughts? 💙✋🗡🛡

5.) 17 Feb 2018 11:39:24
@scotty123 - we should bite their hand off for £11 million! It would allow us to recruit well this summer and I'd use some of it trying too secure Goss for the midfield.

6.) 17 Feb 2018 12:54:05
Has anything concrete on this offer? He is good but 11 million is a lot for a player from the spl

7.) 17 Feb 2018 14:29:48
The Chinese team involved (loosely) already have their full quota of foreign players, also any transfer above 7m is subsequently got 100% tax so if this true they can't play him and and would cost 22m.
So guys I ask u do ANY of u really believe this.

8.) 17 Feb 2018 14:39:17
if the offer is 11m he simply has to go as we are a business (who are still a bit skint) and every player has his price. let’s not forget

he cost us 1m
he’s been here just over 6months
he’s scored 15 goals in league and cup

i remember negri and mccoist both scoring over 30 by christmas - this lad is good but he’s not that good and certainly not irreplaceable. he’s young and will improve but but we may never get an offer like this again. sometimes you just have to make a call for the good of the whole club

if that offer is genuine i’d snap their hand off. cummings josh murphy miller etc will still get us the goals to get 2nd

9.) 17 Feb 2018 16:13:47
He's young and he's like a magnet for the ball in the box, yes he does miss loads of good chances but he still scoring loads of goals, it's a matter of time before he clicks and he'll be worth so much more, be mad to sell him now and jeopardise 2nd place!

10.) 18 Feb 2018 08:19:36
£11m is too much to turn down. We need to win the Title as a matter of urgency and we have steadily closed the gap with our squad adding a few good players in each of the past couple of transfer windows.
If we were in Ceptics financial position I would tend to agree that potentially he could be worth more and would keep him and benefit with his goals until a point where a mammoth bid came in.
£11m would pay for Murphy, Cummings, Goss (if available) and Russel Martin and another striker.
Personally £6m would have been good but £11m we need to sell

11.) 18 Feb 2018 10:11:28
Rainman. Chinese clubs are allowed 4 on the pitch and a further one on the pitch. And the 11 million over and above the actual fee is returned to them not that far down the line. Thanks for caring though

12.) 18 Feb 2018 18:37:18
We need to keep him as Cummings has hardly set world on fire since he arrived. Morales is twice the player Cummings is and works twice as hard too. I know he isn’t match fit but I just think all the bravado is not enough to wear the famous blue shirt

13.) 19 Feb 2018 14:11:35
Regarding the amount being touted for Morales, is there not a sell on clause from his previous club Helsinki?



12 Feb 2018 19:12:22
Tav close to agreeing a 3 1/2 year deal 👍🏼 Personally I think he's been our player of the year by a long shot.

1.) 12 Feb 2018 19:51:52
The blue cafu. Scoring goals and assisting from right back. Hope he signs.

2.) 12 Feb 2018 20:07:04
Hope your right

3.) 12 Feb 2018 22:04:46
really hop tav signs new deal he's been head and shoulders above everybody in team performance wise and i don't think it will be long before epl teams come sniffing

4.) 13 Feb 2018 08:03:35
Him and Candeias work well together

5.) 14 Feb 2018 23:24:48
@IvLarkGraham - although it was good to see The Buffalo and Cummings start against Ayr, I still felt we missed Candeias for an out ball on the right. His work rate is also impressive.
Tav is the best full back in the league.



06 Dec 2017 15:58:42
Deal done. Announcement coming in next 24hr, going to be a 3 1/ 2 year deal. Docherty and looking likely B. Ferguson as no3 tho Neil McCann was first choice over Fergie.

1.) 06 Dec 2017 17:28:25
I hope so. Docherty I'm not so keen on, I'd have preferred murty no2 with Ferguson coming in still. We need his passion.

2.) 06 Dec 2017 18:35:14
Murty as the No 2 for me. TD’s allegiances are in the east end.

3.) 06 Dec 2017 19:56:10
We need Murty in the Academy!

4.) 06 Dec 2017 19:52:24
Ray Wilkins and JJ would be the assistants if I had to choose. Murty back to the youths since he’s done a good job there

5.) 06 Dec 2017 19:57:28
Lets see if your guess is right scotty

6.) 06 Dec 2017 19:58:29
I’m not against Doherty but I would have loved Murty to have been given some role with the first team. If not assistant then no 3. I’m happy with the impending appointment all things considered

7.) 06 Dec 2017 20:04:46
Dm will bring his number 2 and I hope JJ

8.) 06 Dec 2017 20:05:40
I’ve heard a lot of people say that Docherty’s allegiances are to the east, but is that the same for Miller, or for Mo Johnston? I can’t see any professional in this day and age not coming in and giving 100% for his employer. Saying that I still think that Docherty is crap and that Murty, JJ or someone else would be a better choice.

OMFG. Gutless. Spineless. Naive. Embarrassing.

1.) 15 Apr 2018 16:32:18
Yep, the glory hunters will disappear



12 Apr 2018 17:28:59
I was hoping Bates and McCrorie would be our CB pairing for years to come! The board have fkd up letting him go.

1.) 12 Apr 2018 17:59:51
Don't know if any truth in it, but there's stories doing the rounds, that our new prospective manager, frank de boer, has instructed for rangers to let david bates leave, under freedom of contract, after discussions with mark allen! De boer has targets in mind he wants to play beside ross mccrorie, as our new central defence partnership! Remember de boer was a class centre half himself! Only passing on what i've been told bears!

2.) 12 Apr 2018 18:09:31
He’s 100% replaceable. Said no to a new deal.

3.) 12 Apr 2018 18:11:27
this board really must have some impressive cbs lined up in the summer that is wilson and bates come summer alves will probaly go same for cordoso

4.) 12 Apr 2018 18:17:53
I liked bates thought he has been more dependable than Alves, Martin and Cordoso this season but I trust mark allen has something lined up for next season.

5.) 12 Apr 2018 18:30:57
4 lads had a dream on twitter saying no contact with de boer but there's a list, suprised about bates but fair play

6.) 12 Apr 2018 18:32:28
Super cooper
Can I ask one question who told you A - De Bour would be manager and B -Bates is not in his plans

7.) 12 Apr 2018 18:43:16
I'm not bothered at all if we genuinely want to challenge next season bates would be good enough for like fourth choice centre back that's about it. I really don't rate him but good luck to him but I'm predicting he will not play one single minute for Hamburg first team then returns to Scotland for like Kilmarnock or something and is very average.

8.) 12 Apr 2018 19:02:05
Btw I was meaning in a financial business sense. Obv he is replaceable! He is a young Scottish lad and it would have been great to see him and McCrorie form a partnership.
I’ve been reliably informed that FDB name hasn’t been mentioned as a possible manager and the players hope by winning on Sun and going on a run that Murty will still be in charge.

9.) 12 Apr 2018 19:30:54
Am sure if murty was going to be the manager he would have wanted bates signed on for next season
So it is looking more likley new manager has been identified and has targets in mind

10.) 12 Apr 2018 20:50:21
Thinkaboutit, that's 2 questions my friend in the school i went to anyway! Do you think for one minute i'm going to name the person, who gives me good info and works for the club? Be grateful i'm sharing the info i was told, on here among fellow bears! You either believe it or not! Your choice pal!

11.) 12 Apr 2018 23:46:32
Supercoopereleven, you say De Boer has other targets in mind!? So your saying De Boer is the new manager from what you’ve been told?

Yet you’ve harped on about Murty and how you would give it to him?

12.) 13 Apr 2018 00:18:01
Lee_McF, how hard is this to understand mate? I have went on regarding wanting graeme murty to get the rangers manager's job, beyond this season but i've heard a story that frank de boer is going to be the next manager! What do you not understand? Because i think murty should be given the job doesn't mean he will! This is 2 separate things my friend!

13.) 13 Apr 2018 13:25:10
It's academic, neither will be Rangers manager next season. I've told you before, Allen is in deep discussions with Mikel Arteta. He's the first choice.



04 Apr 2018 14:29:54
RIP Ray butch Wilkins. A terrific player and a true gentleman.

1.) 04 Apr 2018 14:43:11
Sad news absolute gentleman rip butch



20 Mar 2018 16:10:18
Neil Warnock would be my pick for next season. Murty will be the boards first choice unless he capitulates. I understand fans citing Clarke however he's got the killie team playing a certain way to pick up points, he's def achieved great things so far but could he come into rangers and set us up in an attacking style and still get the results against teams who just sit in?

1.) 20 Mar 2018 17:26:23
Warnock signed new deal cardiff

2.) 20 Mar 2018 19:13:48
The only thing Neil Warnock would be good at is noising them up. He's not a great manager he just thinks he is

3.) 20 Mar 2018 20:09:49
Have you looked at what he has achieved result wise with Cardiff in a relatively short space of time? He knows the club well and spends a lot of time at his house in Dunoon. I believe he would jump at the chance to manage us if Cardiff don’t get promotion. He’s got bags of experience and gets the best out of his squad.

4.) 20 Mar 2018 22:30:06
Yes scotty123 your absolutely right. He does have a house in dunoon and I got slated last year when I said he was interested in signing Barrie McKay when I met him and then it turns out he was sniffing around for him at one point. Damn if u do and don't on this site sometimes 😂



04 Mar 2018 22:27:48
The goals just keep coming and I'm really looking forward to Sunday's game. We are going into this game better placed and with some momentum. I fancy us for a win. wee question though. If you had to pick one, what would you take the win from, this coming league game or the Scottish semi?

1.) 04 Mar 2018 22:31:34
Semi final I would pick mate

2.) 05 Mar 2018 06:10:10
3 league points for me! . I think Celtic boardroom will be genuinely pooing their pants and they’ll feel annoyed the gap has got shorter.

There may not be a better chance to win the league before 10 in a row.

Celtic May spend big in the summer in order to convince BR to stay and not take a High profile PL job (eg, if Wenger leaves or Poch goes to Madrid or Jose is sacked) . Just look at their response after us playing them off the park at Hamden.

So 3 league points please . THE TIME IS NOW!

3.) 05 Mar 2018 07:55:21
Rodgers is not going to a big bpl team. He can Dream on. Those clubs will never consider him managing in spl.

4.) 05 Mar 2018 08:35:25
If Rodgers goes to Arsenal😂😂😂😂 imagine the reaction of that on Arsenal Fan TV🤣

5.) 05 Mar 2018 08:51:21
Arsenal will want a bigger name than Rodgers. That team needs completely rebuilt and will look for someone with a proven track record at the highest level

6.) 05 Mar 2018 14:26:52
I know what you’re saying and I take all your points but Rodgers is still PL Caliber of manager. if not a top 4 team then any team below that would consider him. I was going off things I’ve read. didn’t mean to make it sound like he would definitely end up there!

Anyway, you’re missing my point boys and girls, point is Celtic boardroom reacted when we beat them in the cup. and whether we win the league or get any closer they will
Spend to move away from us. I believe it’s there for the taking THIS year . and I hope every player and fan believes it as much as I do!

If it’s Hummel who are going to have our famous crest on the tops then they will sell. The money is going to the club and the fans will buy. I remember the old Denmark Hummel tops back in the day and they were classics, the old school stuff is all the rage again and I think if the tops are made by Hummel they would be decent.

From what I’ve heard Miller was having a go at Murty and it escalated into the old school days “hold me back” scenario. A few senior players “stopped” Miller from going for Murty as Murty said it wasn’t the time to have the conversation. These things happen in a changing room but no player should act like this towards a Rangers manager, however, the players are backing Miller and Wallace.

Jack Ross has made bigger strides at St Mirren than what Clarke has at killie and with not a penny to spend. He’s a young well thought of coach and I’d rather we approached him over Clarke. Btw if we do approach Clarke I hope it’s not as public as the McInnes debacle because I’ve heard he will tell us no thanks.

Docherty had a go at Morelos because he didn’t close down a player or fill in a space. basically Morelos chucked it. Docherty was having a bad game like every other gers player but he atleast showed he cared! Morelos wanting to have a go at him as the game was being played then in tunnel is unacceptable. He should have done it behind the changing room door. Morelos attitude is shocking.

Halliday had an ok 20mins coming on against Dundee and gets flung into the semi? And Dorrans has been miles off the pace since coming back from a long lay off. Starting both was not just naive but crazy. I feel sorry for Murty and the way it’s planned out but have nothing but anger towards the players who didn’t lay a glove on one Celtic player as they strolled and played the game like a testimonial against us. Murty should have stuck to previous team put out and tactics against them and given us another chance. I don’t know where we go from here and the next managerial appointment is biggest in club history.
