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.



29 Nov 2017 23:36:58
Ive been reliably informed that McInnes has now been spoken to and deal could be done by start of next week, however, there are a few issues surrounding backroom staff.

1.) 30 Nov 2017 00:17:32
Some forums saying Mcinnes will be appointed after the weekends game with the sheep!

2.) 30 Nov 2017 00:45:58
Hope not

3.) 30 Nov 2017 05:48:30
Why do you hope not?

4.) 30 Nov 2017 06:07:57
Don't want him

5.) 30 Nov 2017 09:05:27
Murty's team just humped him, that's why!

6.) 30 Nov 2017 09:09:43
What has mcinnes done that mcleish. De boer . Gio . etc haven't done that people think he going to be a saviour? Personally only thing he done is finish 2nd to smelltic now if that's top notch for gers job we may as well apoint robbie neilson dine OK wae jimjams stuart mccall same with the wellies etcetc

Rangers need a manager with more experience than mcinnes

7.) 30 Nov 2017 10:42:54
I have heard the same. I heard that he will be appointed on Monday.

8.) 30 Nov 2017 11:24:46
why can't you all see it mcinnes is a crap manager and a bottler under pressure, he will not do us any good if we have any ambitions other than second place then go for it, but as i have said on here many times it will all end in tears, he will last no longer than 18 months and you will be screaming for him to be booted out, you will be watching the sheep2 playing

9.) 30 Nov 2017 12:56:17
Don’t think anyone has said he is te right appointment,
All we saying is he probably will be the new manager.

10.) 30 Nov 2017 13:50:43
Maybe McInnes, made sure the tactics were poor for the sheep last night, so that it'd give him an advantage in a new job?

11.) 30 Nov 2017 14:56:48
Maybe the players showed more hunger, fight and determination last night as the chat at training was McInnes could be in next week?

12.) 30 Nov 2017 16:48:32
I hope this is BS as last night only confirmed to me what I already knew, McInnes isn’t good enough to be our manager. 2nd place and turfed out in the qualifying for Europa league will be as far as he can take us, I’ve seen a lot of crap written about us over the last few weeks about what a bad state we are in! Truth is there’s not a lot between us and 2nd place right now when we’ve been in ‘turmoil’ and I expect to still finish 2nd with the new formation which finally suits the squad which has been assembled. I hope to god we show some ambition with the managerial appointment and make a serious effort to qualify for the Europa League next season.

13.) 30 Nov 2017 17:09:25
I would take McInnes any day of the week before taking back a washed up McLeish who has done nothing of note except get fired the last ten years. Bet the fans that want McLeish were happy he was chased out the door when he won one trophy in 4 years and had a winless streak in the league of ten games. McInnes may not be the ideal choice but I think he’s the best of the market we’re in. Don’t think we have a realistic chance of a De Boer or Gio

14.) 30 Nov 2017 17:10:53
Personally I don’t think he’s the right appointment long term, however, he will stabilise us and have us finish 2nd. I would take that for starters.
Who else is there? Some of the names mentioned from down south were always outwuth our budget! McLeish isn’t the answer, that would set us back and a few days ago Murty was a good development coach who shouldn’t be blamed for previous 2 results, after last night he’s the one again lol Think about it, for where we are at this minute McInnes is the best bet for current targets (finish 2nd and installing what it means to be Rangers) After a few years of being in Europe and merchandising cash coming to us hopefully we can raise targets and go for the title.

15.) 30 Nov 2017 18:33:08
none of our realistic options are going to get our fans seriously excited.

FDB- don't really feel he’s a realistic option but if he is the fact his last 2 jobs he hasn't lasted over 100 days in them sets alarm bells off with me.

big Eck- proper bluenose and knows what its all about but a think he’s been out the game for too long.

GVB- Think he’s destined for a bigger job than ours

tony pulis- he would make us a much more physical team which i wouldn't mind but i think he’ll be looking to stay in the EPL

Mcinnes- after last night people will be thinking we don't want him but over the last 2yrs he’s made a squad of average players perform far more consistently than our last 2 managers have and with a bigger budget and i'm sure the knowledge of sir walter only a phone call away i see him as the best option whoever gets we need to give them our full backing one thing i don't agree with is offering the new man a 3 n a half yr deal 1yr rolling save us from these massive pay outs if things go wrong

16.) 30 Nov 2017 18:37:08
1 trophy in 4 years? Aye ok Mprent111.

17.) 30 Nov 2017 18:42:24
Good post Colshy and I agree with a lot of your comments. It just seems sad that McInnes seems to be an appointment that shows of a lack of ambition. I fully appreciate that of the available options at present he is seems to tick most boxes but he definitely doesn’t tick all the boxes and until that man can be found I’d rather Murty stayed in charge. I believe we have the 2nd best team and in the league and I believe Murty can deliver 2nd.

18.) 30 Nov 2017 19:45:33
I think Murty has done ok and think it
is been a learning curve for him and
hope he does well but we did lose the
games against Hamilton and Dundee
so I would rather go with someone with
more experience and if it is mcginnis I
will get behind him

19.) 30 Nov 2017 19:50:01
Meant to say McInnes

20.) 30 Nov 2017 20:13:35
New manager is going to be long term, none of this till the end of the season. Take it mprrent you weren't referring to the same McLeish who won 7 trophies in just over 4 years at Ibrox? Just have a feeling that new gaffer is going to surprise a lot of us in the fact that it's not a name we have talked a lot about. I will be totally underwhelmed if it is Mcinnes.

21.) 30 Nov 2017 20:42:22
Aye Rick Witter one trophy in four years. Can you not count? He was our manager for 5 1/ 2 years one the double in his first 6 months then the treble the following year. That’s 5 trophies in a year and a half. He won 6 trophies so you do the math. 1 trophy four years

22.) 30 Nov 2017 20:44:31
Sorry yes 7 trophies but 5 were still won in the first year and a half. He was a disaster after that first year and a half

23.) 30 Nov 2017 20:48:38
I’ll hold my handsome hold my hands up and admit I forgot about one league cup but come on two titles in nearly 6 years. He was brilliant first year and a half but he filled the team with rubbish and was chased out the club. I don’t remember any rangers fans saying he’s not had a win in ten league games let’s keep him as the manager

24.) 30 Nov 2017 20:50:16
He also holds the record for consecutive loses to Celtic. Even I forgot that

25.) 30 Nov 2017 21:00:59
I get what you're saying mate but just to remind you, he was in charge for 4 1/ 2 years, not 5 1/ 2. He is the last rangers manager to win a treble, first Scottish team in history to make last 16 of champs league, yeah there was some dross but he also brought in Prso, Novo, Boumsong, Buffel, some of our best players for a while. So you have to take the good with the bad it won't be Eck anyway if we are looking at a 3 year minimum tenure as stated by DK

26.) 30 Nov 2017 21:21:26
wee_bear I think the board really messed up opting for caixinha over gary rowatt I think he could have been a really good manager for us

27.) 30 Nov 2017 22:08:37
Another rant about McLeish, mprent!
We all get it you don't rate what McLeish achieved at rangers, 7 trophies in 5 and a half years, according to you, just isn't good enough.

28.) 30 Nov 2017 22:20:02
The game on Wednesday showed why some people are not to keen on McInnes. He's tactically naive and I personally think he's underachieved at the sheep, they've had a decent squad for a few years now and he's got one trophy to show for it. I still hope we'll get a Big-name as manager. Not sure we've got the money now though

29.) 30 Nov 2017 23:11:19
Blueberry. he's tactically naive? What would u know about tactics ? It scunners me the amount of pish people talk on here. U don't have any idea about tactics but say McInnes is naive. His heed must be bursting with all the speculation. He's took an average Aberdeen team and made them mlies better. Maybe we should try and get Zidane. would that please u?

30.) 30 Nov 2017 23:24:31
if here is anything to go by. no manager mentioned will unite the fans. boy are we in trouble

31.) 01 Dec 2017 07:42:52
You’re right I can’t stand McLeish as a manager. I’ve said several times his start to life as a rangers manager was phenomenal. 5 trophies in 18 months but let’s not kid ourselves the second title he won he only won because Celtic got to ueafa cup final. Just like they only won the league because we got to a final. The season before he lucked out everyone wanted shot of him because Celtic won the league at a canter. He also holds the record for number of games without a win and the record for consecutive losses to Celtic. I can’t understand why no one is willing to give McInnes the benefit of the doubt even if he isn’t the right choice but would happily take McLeish back. Be honest you were all delighted when he was sacked. Were they’re not protests outside the stadium when Hibs humped us at ibrox. I’m not calling for McInnes I would preferably like someone who hasn’t worked or played for rangers unless it’s Gio but I think he’s destined for much bigger things than us

32.) 01 Dec 2017 08:59:13
Clearly I don’t fancy McLeish as the manager but I would back him to the hilt if he gets the job. I just feel we always look backwards and it’s always the old pals act with us.

33.) 01 Dec 2017 09:27:27
What ever you do on here, DON'T disagree with mprent! HIS opinion means much more than anyone else's! But we DO both agree rangers should go for somebody else. I do agree we don't necessarily need a 'rangers man' as manager.

34.) 01 Dec 2017 10:01:02
7 trophies in 4 and a 1/ 2 years Mprent111. Get your facts right before you come on spouting your nonsense. Just for the record I don’t want Mcleish back but respect what he did for the club.

35.) 01 Dec 2017 12:14:44
Dutch it's called having an opinion, no it doesn't mean I am right. But to go to ibrox, when rangers have been beaten in the last 2 games against the 2 worst team's in the league. Play an unfamiliar formation (3 at the back), with rangers only having miller as a recognized striker, have to hook off a player before halftime. Is in my opinion naive tactically.

36.) 01 Dec 2017 12:26:41
I respect what what he did and his start to life at rangers was nothing short of phenomenal. Ye I was a year out and a trophy out in what I said but take your blinkers off . If you can’t acknowledge we win the second of his titles because Celtic through it away then your not being honest with yourself. Celtic won the league when we got to Manchester because we got to Manchester not because they were the better team. I don’t want McLeish because after the initial 18 month period he lucked out and won a title after EVERYONE was calling for his head, so much so Murray came out to support him. I also don’t want him because he has two of our most unwanted records in longest winless streak in league and record consecutive losses the Celtic. Granted he plucked a few gems but they were far outnumbered by the rubbish. I simply want the club to look forward and not look back. Regardless of what your opinion is about McLeish surely it can’t be up for question that in recent years his record at clubs has been pretty poor

37.) 01 Dec 2017 12:45:11
The season after everyone was calling for his head when we won nothing I meant

38.) 01 Dec 2017 12:54:54
Got to admit I’ve always thought McLeish was rather fortuitous. He did have some fantastic achievements at Rangers and Birmingham but he also had some very questionable moments as well. Not for me. Someone a bit forward thinking for me.

39.) 01 Dec 2017 23:46:33
martin canning to be announced on monday

40.) 02 Dec 2017 04:42:56
It was a winless streak of 7 league games actually Mprent111 but we beat them in the league cup final after the first loss of that run a week later although they then did beat us at Ibrox to give them a chance of winning the league that season which they didn’t because we beat Dunfermline 6-1 to clinch the title. The following season however was when they went 5 games unbeaten against us including knocking us out of the Scottish Cup which was a terrible season for us. They beat us in the first game of the 2004/ 05 season but we then beat them at Ibrox in the league and league cup on the way to the double that season. That’s not blinkers that’s facts. Again just to reiterate, get all your facts in place before coming on here spouting your nonsense and once again just so you know, I don’t want Mcleish back either but not going to listen to lies getting made up about his Rangers record. An apology is all it takes.



21 Nov 2017 17:24:02
I was told today to expect no appointment or any announcements about new manager until after AGM and that two potential manager lists have been drafted. A list that current board will pursue without investment and another that requires investment.
The current board expect the resolution to be passed which will enable investment and rumours about it coming from a North American group being guided by Alastair Johnston aren't going away.

1.) 21 Nov 2017 18:13:23
Who in their right mind is going to want to invest in us? In the papers every week for all the wrong reasons

2.) 21 Nov 2017 18:37:32
Govanfront ----It is at a time like this that investors will look very closely at an investment.

3.) 21 Nov 2017 18:40:39
Goven front it's res11 at the agm that he's talking about. it's been blocked for the last two years but this time it should go through. well here's hoping. bcos the board are banking on it going through. as a matter of fact res11 is massive to our club going forward so fingers crossed enough votes get it over the line this time

4.) 21 Nov 2017 18:42:58
what wrong reasons, for sacking a twit and not paying 800 grand for someone who would not take rangers forward as he has proved against cetic and his recent results best he could do would get you second place, you should not read too much into what you read in the rags
they are all full of rubbish anyway they only listen to what they are fed with wait and see what the board come out with

5.) 21 Nov 2017 19:16:26
Well with the exception of the SD deal I’m struggling to remember a ‘good story’ coming out of Ibrox. I’m not being all doom and gloom I just can’t see the fairly tale investor thing being the answer everyone is hoping for. I will wait patiently like everyone else and hope I’m wrong!

6.) 21 Nov 2017 20:21:48
You do know that the money raised not a penny will go to the club it will go to paying off loans also why would anyone in the right mind dilute there current shares and buy more

7.) 21 Nov 2017 20:44:47
Gordo loans are not getting paid back they are to be turned into shares in a share issue and if you buy more shares less chance of diluting your shares, think about it.

8.) 21 Nov 2017 20:52:44
If that’s he case they should be upfront and tell us. This is turning into a farce as per usual. I don’t think there are many fans that wouldn’t accept waiting till after the AGM if we were just told that was the case.

9.) 21 Nov 2017 20:55:02
not a penny . that surely will depend how much money is raised Gordo, and also what the terms of the soft loans are

issuing new shares is one way a company can raise money its fairly common practice Also the price which will be offered to shareholders will be at a discount to market price that’s why it’s attractive

all of this of course is dependant or res 11 being passed.

10.) 21 Nov 2017 21:30:47
Its always been public knowledge the loans will be converted into shares when they can be.

Im sure rangers first/ club 1872 also have a load of cash to invest to boost fan ownership levels or keep its holdings strong after a share issue.

11.) 21 Nov 2017 21:40:02
Dave King himself has said that all loans will be paid back in shares at some point if you don’t know this then you clearly haven’t been reading much over the last couple years

12.) 21 Nov 2017 22:12:13
Hopefully SuperAlly can be bothered to vote this time or has at least Proxied his rights!

13.) 22 Nov 2017 01:12:10
Sticks in the throat the fact we paid around £3-4m for two imposters in Herrera and Pena

14.) 22 Nov 2017 05:58:11
To be fair res11 was ruuned last year by 1% and that was wee sally that never voted but ashleys shares are gone now so it shoukd be straight forward. let's hope we get investment.

15.) 22 Nov 2017 09:26:18
the money raised will be to pay people off so what investment this isn't a magic wand that wipes all the debt away like king as said it doesn't make sense but if you really believe that then that's up to you think of this logically the more shares there is the less they are worth for instance say you spent 1 million on the original shares and that got you 10% the loans are at 18 million that means your shares are diluted

16.) 22 Nov 2017 10:23:53
You vote against it then Gordo. Simple.

As stated by nearly everyone above, the soft loans will be converted into shares reducing the debt. Current shareholders will be given the opportunity to re-invest to maintain their shareholding and hopefully this will provide some much needed capital.

No magic wand, but this will help the club. Most of the investors are now supporters of the club so they are not in vesting to make a huge profit.

Hopefully with a new retail deal, kit sponsor and shirt sponsor we will be able to raise additional cash each year. Also if the DOF and scouting system just put in place we would hope to make some money on player transfers and finally if we have a better manager and players in place we can get some money from European competition.

The business model is the easy bit. It’s getting the right manager and better players that seem to cause us problems.

17.) 22 Nov 2017 13:08:37
Gordo it doesn’t makes shares worth less money it just means that the percentage of the company you own is less

For instance if you have 1% of the shares and there is 10,000 shares and in the next share issue they release another 10,000 shares you then own 0.5% of the shares in the company but your share value isn’t effected by this.

18.) 22 Nov 2017 13:48:04
I may be totally wrong btw so if anyone wants to correct me if I am then I’m fine with that as I have zero stock experience lol

19.) 22 Nov 2017 13:51:43
Sorry for another post but this is what I found on the interweb this is direct copy and paste.

In simplest terms, when a company creates new shares and sells them, it's true that existing shareholders now own a smaller percentage of the company. However, as the company is now more valuable (since it made money by selling the new shares), the real dollar value of the previous shares is unchanged.

That said, the decision to issue new shares can be interpreted by investors as a signal of the company's strategy and thereby alter the market price; this may well affect the real dollar value of the previous shares. But the simple act of creating new shares does not alter the value in and of itself.

Welcome to the greatest club in the world Doc! From fan to player. every kids dream. Enjoy 👌🏻.



17 Jan 2018 21:23:48
Would fans view it as a good bit of business if we accept a 1M bid from Leeds for Windass and buy in Docherty for 650K?

1.) 17 Jan 2018 21:39:38
Yes great business Windass has came on to a game though would like him to stay, however I believe Docherty is a better more consistent player I’ve watched this boy from day dot he would be a great attribute!

2.) 17 Jan 2018 21:59:21
Id take it, i like windass but does go missing

3.) 17 Jan 2018 22:54:34
I would take it as I want docherty in the team, but ideally I would like windass to stay and get docherty. There has been a huge improvement in his game since murty put him through the middle. I think he could push on with better players round about him. 1mil to 1.5mil would be hard for us to turn down.

4.) 17 Jan 2018 23:01:13
That wouldn't be good business Imo. rather have Windass than Docherty.

5.) 18 Jan 2018 13:05:53
No, Keep windass. Get him signed up.



28 Dec 2017 14:41:39
Had a decent wee debate around Niko during/ after game and it was split on if he should start on Sat? His vision and passing is like no others in the team, however, he has zero pace and if game is played at a decent tempo he's a man down. Do we have enough energy in team to cover him? Thoughts guys? What XI should Murty start with and can we play a high pressing in their faces game when Alves likes to sit so deep?
Team I'd go with:
Tav Wilson Alves John
Candias Holt Barjonas Windass

1.) 28 Dec 2017 16:00:31
Well the game will be played at more than a decent tempo because that's the way they play. i'd prob start him because we’re down to the bare bones but if we had a fully fit squad then not a chance he would start

2.) 28 Dec 2017 16:02:06
hoping to see mccrorie get wired right into lego muncher. sick of him swaggering about like he is iniesta

3.) 28 Dec 2017 16:27:20
I’d go with that team Scotty but go 4-1-3-2 with windass up top with Morelos

4.) 28 Dec 2017 16:48:38
My team would be fod tav Wilson alves john - mccrorie- jack holt atakayi hardy morelos ano jack might not be fit so if not I'd put bates at the back to make a back 3 and ano it would be atakayi's debut but Walter gave young guys debuts in big games so why not play a wild card nothing to lose in this it's a free swing let's take it

5.) 28 Dec 2017 17:53:21
McRorie loves a 50/ 50 and one against. Brown will surely wet his appatite

6.) 28 Dec 2017 18:27:17
One worry about Jack playing on Saturday (of course I realise that he is probably unfit) is that he could get a red card, provoked by you-know-who

7.) 28 Dec 2017 18:36:02
I'd go


Bates Alves Wilson

Taviener McCrorie Barjonas/ Jack John


Morelos Windass

8.) 28 Dec 2017 20:44:27

Bates? You have to be joking. Did you miss the Kilmarnock game? Boyd looked like a £10m striker against that clown

9.) 28 Dec 2017 20:55:54
Brian G, you're truly needing to get a grip mate! I don't think bates is the answer for us longterm, but common calling the young centre half a clown, isn't called for! Have a word with yourself!

10.) 28 Dec 2017 21:04:34
Ok supercooper he is a poor player not good enough for the team

11.) 28 Dec 2017 23:54:07
Thought Nico did well for 60 mins last night and hiis class and eye for a pass was good. Not sure about Saturday though as we need it to be a battle all over the pitch. Think we should play 3 at back, flood the midfield and battle. Assuming Jack not available my team would be:

Bates, Alves, Wilson,
Tav, McCorie, John
Candelas, Holt, Barjonas

12.) 28 Dec 2017 23:59:37
Team i'd play on Sat:


A. Wilson Alves D. Wilson


Tav Windass Holt McRorie Candeias


Subs - Hardie John Wallace Morelos Barjonas Bates

13.) 29 Dec 2017 09:21:49

Herrera? What on earth has he done to merit at start in front of Morelos?

14.) 30 Dec 2017 00:10:51
Arthur D,

I know where you are from but I think Herrera's first touch is a lot better than Morelos', he holds the ball up better, is better in the air and maybe - just maybe for this game he would score half of the chances that Morelos has missed recently. AND I think Morelos would be in danger of getting sent off if things are not going our way!



24 Dec 2017 00:03:52
The board should go and get Garry Monk now!
No disrespect to Murty but he's on a hiding to nothing and we won't have European football if he's given the full season. Experience is priceless.

1.) 24 Dec 2017 08:28:21
Steve Clark should have been approached before DM.

Has to be one of the most experienced managers in our league he has a vast amount of experience down south and knows the Scottish game.

Doing wonders with killie. A team that you’d av put money on being relegated a few months ago.

No offence Mr Murty but yer a fall guy in this mess and.

2.) 25 Dec 2017 15:13:17
I think you are all missing the point here of why murty got the job, rangers are skint, we can't afford Gary monk or any other experienced manager, mcinnes would have taken the job but he obviously was offered a pittance of pay and has realised that we're in the chocolate again, it's going to be a long road back guys.



17 Dec 2017 00:23:03
That's the worst performance I've seen in a long long time. We were all over the place and shape was all wrong. Murty is fire fighting or papering over cracks or whatever you wanna call it, he can't be blamed for the mess we are in and even after the Aberdeen wins I never believed he was the man to take us forward. We need someone in ASAP and I really fear for us in old firm game if we don't. Need to be realistic with next manager as we are skint, O'Neil and after today st Johnstone manager will be obvious choices but I think Clarke just in at Killie is a good shout! Has EPL experience and now SPL also.

1.) 17 Dec 2017 09:37:16
Scotty totally agree can't blame Murty he is out of his depth and been hung out to dry by this shambles of a board who need to tell us what the hell is happening

Murphy will keep the jersey until performance dip. He doesn’t deserve to lose his jersey.

Is that £500.00 lol He’s full of work but just too lightweight for engine room, he won’t start when first XI is fit.

He has said he won’t be leaving in Jan. he doesn’t say he won’t leave. He may go in summer and has intimated that he isn’t wanting to sign a new contract. I’d try and keep him but will suit both parties to sell in summer.

I’d give Rossiter till the summer and assess it then. The young lad is highly thought of down south. I’d try and get shot of Hodson, Herrera, Niko, Cardoso and Alves in this window if poss.

I agree with some of above and I’d take Cummings every day of the week over Naismith. I just hope him and Laff don’t come back to bite us . Sod’s law

McCrorie injury isn’t progressing as expected. In 3 to 4 weeks he will be re assessed and possibility he may need an op which could put him out for most of this season.

Let’s take care of our own business and win the games against Hearts and St J, continue to build some momentum and hopefully tighten up at the back. I would take a draw between celtic and the sheep

Rossiter rolled his ankle in last game. It’s not related to any of his previous injuries which I believe are hip and back related. Give the lad a break a rolled ankle is common and it’s not long term this time.

After some of the results we have had recently the “its only Ayr” doesn’t apply. Ayr would have won our European tie for example. got to take the positives from the win and confidence it should generate throughout squad. Let’s get a wee run of wins going!

What’s the rush with Murty? I agree it’s been a good window, is Murty due the credit for this of DOF? If results continue with progress sustained and we finish second at end of season then yeah give him a year rolling deal.
