I reckon McLeish is going to get managers job till end of season with a view to him stepping into DOF role for new season. The board want De Boer but that's not going to happen and can see it at best being McInnes. Can also see Barry Ferguson coming in some capacity also.

1.) 16 Feb 2017 04:55:44
I have a hunch de Boer will be our next permanent manager. He is open to talks as far as interm MccLeish absoloutley. But as I've said before a few criteria would need to be net for Frank to step in so we shall wait and see.

2.) 16 Feb 2017 06:13:47
That little rubbish Ferguson wouldn't be welcomed back by me . I won't forgive him for the LeGuen nonsense.

3.) 16 Feb 2017 06:58:25
Bluehaun, is that the Le Guen nonsense where he left our best player on the bench and destroyed a reasonable team with his negative tactics . Ferguson was the only one who cared enough about the club and went out on a limb to challenge him whilst the rest of the sheep went along with an inept manager who was taking the club down.
I don't know wether Fergie would be a success as our coach but he would always put Rangers first. Now u go and rewrite some more of our history.

4.) 16 Feb 2017 08:54:54
I don't know if it's all truth or not I was too young at the time to Rember all the facts but I listened to the heart and hand podcast, one of the guys on it was part of a rangers fans group that had meetings with David Murray in which he told the fans trust that Paul le guen wanted to leave rangers really early in his career and when Murray refused to let him go he started manoeuvring a way out the door by picking on key players and knew rangers wouldn't accept ferguson being treated that way

5.) 16 Feb 2017 08:58:23
Ive heard through a reliable source that Waghorn and Forrester have asked to leave

6.) 16 Feb 2017 08:58:34
The DOF job is quite specific and a large part from what I understand is recruitment of players, I'll tell you now Alex McLeish has absolutely no chance of being appointed DOF, NONE. There is a good but risky chance Murty is left in charge the remainder of this season, I think they may see how he goes in the next game before deciding? In regard to the new long term appointment it will need to be one that gets the fans excited the board will know they will not sell 38,000 + on a sub standard appointment

7.) 16 Feb 2017 08:59:04
Well said Ross1990. Ferguson is Rangers through and through. Le Guen was a crank.

8.) 16 Feb 2017 10:39:18
One my mates thinks he's ITK and say Graham Murty is getting the dundee game to see how he gets on, if we win he'll be installed as temporary coach till the end of the season if not big Eck will be installed as of Monday.

9.) 16 Feb 2017 10:28:01
I hope Barry Ferguson never gets close to the Rangers job, the so called "Rangers Man" and club captain hung his boots up when le Guen arrived (probably because he wanted him to quit smoking and give up the junk food) and didn't learn from the experience and went onto embarass both himself and the club with his behavior on international duty which really sums up his attitude and mental capacity. Barry Ferguson - no thanks.

10.) 16 Feb 2017 10:52:00
Forrester can go straight away as far as I am concerned. I think Waghorn has a bit more to offer, and if played in the correct position would surely knock in more goals.

11.) 16 Feb 2017 13:19:51
Ger8: I have that hunch too.

12.) 16 Feb 2017 13:53:00
le guen is not enough reason to fall out with a player that captained us for years and wone soo many trophies and if u didn't see his recent interview about the le guen saga then go and watch it it will clear up why he didn't like leguen and leguen put him out the team because he was trying to get out of the job

13.) 16 Feb 2017 14:06:12
barry ferguson would be a great assistant for rangers and de boer as the manager but only if we manager to get investment for real quality players.

i don't think we need a new team i think that we need 2 or 3 cb's a cdm that's not injured hopefully young rossiter lad can come back strong as he looks brilliant.

and an out and out striker i'd love to take adam rooney from the sheep as him and hayes run that team withut them they would crumble and i think we missed a chance to take the sheep out of the running by not splashing the cash on them as we spent just as much on garner and he works like mad but can't score playing in that formation



17 Jun 2016 14:09:53
MW is hopeful of landing 2 Spurs players on loan. Shayon Harrison and Harry Winks. Big things expected of both these lads! Source is my mate whose a coach at pro youth level.

1.) 17 Jun 2016 14:35:16
Harry winks is a great wee player. Just had a look at Harrison what a loan move that would be fingers crossed great potential future star at a high level of we get a season I'd be more than happy.

2.) 17 Jun 2016 16:23:17
Members of my family from london ST holders at WHL and harrison being talked about getting in 1st team picture next season so i reckon highly unlikely we will get him on loan . would be a great move by warburton if he could get him the lad has a big future.

3.) 17 Jun 2016 22:22:48
No chance.



24 May 2016 22:56:37
My mate isn't normally too far off and he's telling me that Peter Crouch has been contacted about possibility of move. Not sure if he's what we need but his Mrs would def be a welcome addition at games lol.

1.) 24 May 2016 23:44:10
Crouch no good we don't cross the ball enough and we don't put corners in the box and he can't move with the ball at his feet.

2.) 24 May 2016 23:50:19
I mentioned peter crouch on here a few weeks ago saying he would do a job for us for a season and i was laughed at.

3.) 25 May 2016 03:57:23
Surely we can change tactics during games, if we play the same week in week out opposition teams will play their way and we're going to be shutdown every time.

4.) 25 May 2016 06:29:25
Peter Crouch would get murdered up here! Defenders would just run straight through him. If we sign him, we are going to go from playing passing/ ball retention football to just lumping it up the park?

5.) 25 May 2016 07:30:36
Peter crouch is good in the air but he's always been renowned for being good with the ball at his feet for such a big guy. He would do a job up here.

6.) 25 May 2016 09:13:36
Give me Peter Crouch in a second. He is good with the ball at his feet, we need options up front, he is outwith our norm, I think it would be a smart move if we brought him in, also experienced at the very highest level!

7.) 25 May 2016 11:15:37
You don't need to lump it to up to Crouch he's a good footballer. Popular misconception.

8.) 25 May 2016 14:02:30
We can't always go into a game with plan A if it doesn't work then we need to do something different.

9.) 25 May 2016 14:34:15
gmartin8, Crouch has shown he can handle himself against some of the best/ hardest defenders who have much more ability/ dig than anything up here, would take him in a heartbeat.

10.) 25 May 2016 08:17:35
Crouch would be amazing up here. His linkup play has always been top class and the guy knows exactly where the goal is. He would score a pile and would cause mayhem for opposition defenses. He is really skillful and has scored probably the best goal I have ever seen. I would welcome that!

11.) 25 May 2016 08:39:19
Let's be serious though I wouldn't have crouch for my Sunday league team Fairless rangers, his goal return is abysmal. If we sign him or even talk to him in anyway about a deal then we're decreasing in the quality of player we can bring to our great club.

12.) 25 May 2016 15:47:49
I didn't say that he didn't have ability. Without a doubt players down South are technically better. I fear signing someone like him (who has scored 2 goals in 18 appearances this year btw! ) would get battered. If I am wrong, I am wrong, but I can't see him being a good signing.



16 Apr 2016 19:19:47
Graham Dorrans is desperate to play for Rangers. Boyhood fan and fancies coming back to Glasgow. Only issue is cash tho he's willing to take a hit in salary to pull on the jersey.

1.) 16 Apr 2016 21:15:16
If that was true it would be amazing.

2.) 16 Apr 2016 21:46:50
Spoke to him before and he said he would walk up the road to rangers given the chance. Transfer fee would be the only problem.

3.) 16 Apr 2016 21:59:30
Maybe not if Norwich get relegated.

4.) 17 Apr 2016 19:54:43
Would love that to be true, great player but can't see it being viable due to our monetary conditions, can only hope tho.

I do like the idea of either Kevin Mcdonald or bridcutt tho (bridcutt even more so after his wonderful commitment against sviatchenko) tough tackling and no nonsense, not enough of his ilk around any more, Lee cattermole is another who would be fantastic, won't happen tho (maybe? )

5.) 17 Apr 2016 20:33:36
Dorrans was in the row in front of me today at Hampden. Few fans asked him about a move and he seemed keen, whether it's a genuine possibility, only time will tell.



27 Aug 2015 16:54:06
Sheffield Wed will listen to transfer or loan offers for Stevie May.
I still think he would be a great signing for us and would score a lot of goals

1.) 27 Aug 2015 22:04:12
if he what warburton want ok if he no I trust him he a good eye so far for a player

11 Feb 2017 23:42:15
Tim Sherwood as manager and Paul Mitchell who is working his notice as head of recruitment at Spurs would be a great shout.
Do we need an ex ger?



11 Feb 2017 16:21:41
Statement from King is clear and transparent! Speaking about finance, Warburton resignation and hinting strongly to leaks coming out of ibrox being via Warburton.
The board have handled this all very well and Warburton and his representatives must be strongly regretting actions at start of week which have back fired on them so publically.

1.) 11 Feb 2017 16:42:43
There are two sides to every story. I suspect we'll hear the other soon enough.

If King's is accurate, fair play to him and the Board. I'm disappoint that it didn't work out with Warburton and it will be very, very interesting to see who comes in now.

2.) 11 Feb 2017 16:44:24
I agree completely however if they do not have any minutes from that meeting or a written resignation then it could prove costly.

If they do not have evidence of this meeting or agreement and have consequently terminated the contract then the board will look foolish to say the least.

I love the open and transparent statement, but it does feel like we are washing our dirty linen in public. We now need a solid appointment for the long term. It better not be Billy Davies

3.) 11 Feb 2017 16:54:58
Always two sides to a story.

But if there has been dishonesty there may well be some "spin" unless they are gagged by their lawyers .

4.) 11 Feb 2017 17:32:10
Just read kings statement. Interesting indeed. 1. Wages being wasted with players not playing? Surely can't blame injuries.

2. He said they resigned on Monday night. So why would they still there on Friday?
3. 18 million spent of the 30 million warchest. If so what has happened to the 16.18 million season ticket money?
4. Honestly think it's a pr spin to get rangers fans onside to buy season tickets again.
5. Think the job was way to big for warburton and the signs were there from last reasons Scottish cup final.

5.) 11 Feb 2017 18:50:46
Lance, you're way to negative as usual!

1. No need for interpretation, just look at the team sheets over the past few months, ignore the injuries, add the incoming players and work out minutes on the pitch.

2. I read "intended to resign, negotiations, agent". I didn't see resigned on Monday

3. Look at our accounts and get real with the money coming in v going out

4. So don't buy a season ticket! Save your money and moan from your sofa

5. With hindsight taking into account t this weeks information, I agree. I also. Think that the board did a great service to the club last night

6.) 11 Feb 2017 19:16:32
BR65. So you honestly think that there has been 18 million plus season ticket money put into the club this season? So that's about 35 million and they are still getting loans which now total about 10 to 12 million. Everyone going on about how he only had about 4 million max to spend so where gap the rest of the money went and please don't say the stadium.

7.) 12 Feb 2017 14:49:15
I backed warburton for a long time, now I wish I never backed him at all, he tried and failed to get to Forrest, as for davie weir, disgusted.!

8.) 12 Feb 2017 14:56:01
I think it stinks of Jim trainor spin, the board get shot of some big wages for nothing, and blame warburton for everything that's wrong, season tickets will go on sale early with Jim trainor fed stories of a big name.
For everything you lot have been through, for god sakes listen to all sides and don't jump on the one you want to be right

9.) 12 Feb 2017 18:53:56
Lance, you're so smart, you've figured it all out. I'd suggest tic fear of a resurgence.



02 Feb 2017 16:00:51
I got to laugh at the "next" manager names being flung about. Not a chance will we atttact a De Boer or Laudrup..
I'd go with Jim Duffy & Barry Ferguson who wouldn't cost us much and know the Scottish game.
But more importantly .. we can't afford to sack MW and the back room staff !!

1.) 02 Feb 2017 16:08:21
Now i'm laughing at you jim duffy and bazza lol

2.) 02 Feb 2017 17:13:47
Nic we have no cash and can't afford to sack MW.
The names put about on here are names that we used to be able to attract! Would need to be a diehard to take this squad on and to work with zero cash.
Who would you suggest Nic?

3.) 02 Feb 2017 18:18:01
Yeah I get it we can't attract anyone top drawer but we can do better than jim duffy and barry! i'm not calling to sack warburton for the fact we can't afford but I will tell you one thing he is not the man to turn it around the players look as if they have lost intrest, how any coach can't have players fit and up for a match is baffling me! Realistically I can't see him being inplace at start of next season and his replacement will depend on how things go behind scene regards court cases etc but unless we have injection of cash were looking at tommy wright or the likes and i'd be happy enough

4.) 02 Feb 2017 19:05:16
I'll chuck derek adams into the ring aswell done well with county and plymouth would like him to have had some experience at a bigger club but he knows the league and is surely a realistic target regards salary and working with limited funds

5.) 02 Feb 2017 19:48:59
I disagree mate I think rangers can't afford not to sack the management team. If we perform like that any more then we can kiss goodbye to any sort of European qualifiers for next season. It was shameful and so were Warburtons comments.

6.) 02 Feb 2017 20:12:05
That would be the market we would be looking at defo. Wright and Adams are decent shouts but are they much different to Duffy whose working wonders at Morton and is well respected in Scottish game? I seriously think him and Barry Ferguson would be a good team and Baz could learn so much from Duffy.
Can seriously forget a top European manager until decent cash is available and that won't be until Ashley contracts expire.
We will have MW till end of season at least.

7.) 02 Feb 2017 22:53:35
I just don't think barry is a manager!? And duffy, maybe i'm wrong but when we used to play against his teams in the past, he kicked every ball and when his team went to piggery you wouldn't know he was there!

8.) 02 Feb 2017 22:43:46
@scotty123 - aye because BF is working wonders at Clyde! Give me strength!

9.) 02 Feb 2017 23:06:27
If MW goes before end of season then Morton and Clyde wouldn't be hard to deal with and I believe they would install some much needed fight. Others would require compensation.
Maybe your right about Barry mate but he'd certainly kick a few arses and let some know that they just ain't at it.
Maybe Smith or Souness would take team to end of season but I just can't see it unless Souness mate is going to invest.

10.) 03 Feb 2017 15:30:31
that's all we can afford lol.

I think warbs is asking for the criticism he is getting by not playing more in the middle of the park where we are being outnumbered by every team we play.

his tactics need a lot of work and he needs to start listening to the fans .

also when the best defender you have in your squad is the slowest in the league u need to ask yourself what's happening there surely we could have brought in a couple of defenders as Kiernan is the worst in the league and hill is the slowest.

Kiernan was responsible for at least 2 of the goals last night and halliday was dire aswell yet they insit on playing them both. okay halliday is a good player but only in his own position not a defensive player at all

11.) 03 Feb 2017 15:34:51
garner 1.8 million ohallaran 500k
Rossiter 500k doodoo 250k that's over 3 million and that doesn't include signing on fees for rest players and the wages all these players are on the names mentioned in the pool are the type of managers that we should be aiming for and they certainly will improve us and maybe even some of the players that are hear already
the likes of jim duffy barry ferguson will not cut it we need up our game big time and if king doesn't want to invest he should step aside and let other do so



02 Feb 2017 10:53:58
Last night was a complete shambles and being honest we were lucky to get anything from the previous 2 games against well. I've always been an admirer of MW philosophy on the game, however, it just isn't suited to our Scottish game where teams sit in against us and press the right areas.
The question is guys Who do we bring in ?? Let's be realistic here with suggestions.. Smith, McLeish to steady the ship.. no thanks.. McInnes.. no thanks .. Davies.. haha really ?? And De Boer brothers or Laudrups.. we have no cash to attract that calibre.
So who do we attract with the cash we have at disposal and current squad???

1.) 03 Feb 2017 14:20:43
Here's a left-field one, the man credited with Leicester's mercurial rise, Nigel "take no shit" Pearson.



29 Jan 2017 14:31:50
I think we should be doing everything possible to hold onto young Gilmour. Looking likely that Chelsea are going to take him from us. We have no cash to buy talent so surely paying the lad a bit extra and promoting him through to first team quickly is only way forward. This lad has potential to be a real star so benefits on park and financially in a few years far outweighs 150k

1.) 29 Jan 2017 14:46:13
At the age of 15 all he has is potential and we shouldn't be held to ransom by a kid, no matter how good he looks. I've coached at that level and saw dozens of boys just as good as him (at Rangers and elsewhere) who never made it. If he and his parents want to listen to the cash grabbers who have no interest in his future development, there's not much we can do except wish him all the luck he will need when he's rotting away on loan at Oxford, Northampton, MK Dons and the rest.

2.) 29 Jan 2017 15:13:47
Yeah if he wants to go then let him. Chelsea cram their youth teams with young players like him and only very few actually make it to the Chelsea first team. He may do it he may not however it does look like greed on his or his parents part if he opts for Chelsea

3.) 29 Jan 2017 16:06:34
Got to disagree guys. How many young players has rangers got out on loan the now. So who is to say he shall get a game at rangers? Money talks in all aspects of life.

4.) 29 Jan 2017 16:36:46
He needs to be very careful. I have first hand knowledge of quality young players whose parents, and them, got carried away with the lure of cash only to find that a few years later they were on the scrapheap and playing for teams like Bury or Southport!

Sometimes the grass in not as green on the other side as people think and oftenn it is the parents that are to blame.

5.) 29 Jan 2017 17:38:18
You're right wee-ecky, if he doesn't want to play for the famous glasgow rangers, that's his choice! Let him go and we move on! I don't want any player at rangers being kept against there will! If they're not committed to our club then they leave and we get players in who want to be here! Simple as that and just like wee-ecky says young boys as good as billy gilmour at that age have left our club and other clubs in general before! that's football guys!

6.) 29 Jan 2017 18:26:30
Have you seen the size of him he's tiny he looks like an 11 yr old no way is he ready for 1st team football,

7.) 29 Jan 2017 19:34:30
Totally agree bigrfc he's nowhere near ready for the first team he's far to light weight just now hopefully he stays but if he goes good luck to the kid there is nothing to suggest he will play 1st team with us we hardly a great club for promoting youth apart from McKay but hopefully that is something that does change in the next few years only time will tell

8.) 30 Jan 2017 08:27:47
He needs to be left to grow and mature before being flung in. Derek Johnstone bad a man's body at 16 that's why he got the nod so young. Even fleck at 16 he wasn't tall but he was broad and filled out. Gilmour looks like he's about 8 stone.

The medical was taken and issues came from it. Best all round for Rangers, JL and Villa that "family reasons" prevented the transfer going thru! 100% Not worth risking his wages for 2 year deal, we don't have the cash to take gambles like in previous years.

The lad has only played a handful of games at senior level let's not jump the gun and have him as some kind of wonder kid just yet. Be patient with him and hopefully he will develop into a good player and we will reap the rewards on the pitch then in sell on .

Dodoo contract has expired tho is expected to sign a new deal with Leicester and just minor adjustments before he signs. MW has jumped the queue in trying to get him on loan tho could he tempt him on a perm deal?

I agree with what u say in regards to him being manager, however, I wouldn't say having him involved would be an issue. As a captain his no nonsense approach worked and if he brought that as a no2 then I'd b happy as a few backsides r needing kicked in playing dept



Click To View This Thread

04 Feb 2017 00:44:33
My team would be:

Hodson, Wilson (if fit) or Hill, Bates, Wallace
Dodoo, Hyndman, Windass, McKay

Both FB's play mainly own half with McKay and Dodoo giving the attacking width. Toral holding and link.
