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



01 Jul 2015 10:19:28
Ex Rangers youth Stephen Dobbie has been sounded out about a return. Good striker who is proven at championship level. Gut feeling is he will stay in championship with a team pushing for promo, however, he may be tempted back to Glasgow.

Rangers should sign Knox from Livingston instead of using the cash for another loan player. The 2 loan signings are good players but do we need a third loan signing? MW keen to secure another and develop relationships with prem team?! Go get Knox before it's another we talk about that we should have got for pennies.

1.) 17 Jan 2017 16:28:11
Knox was due to go for a third trial with Man Utd as reported by the media last month.
He is attracting interest from a few EPL clubs and Nottingham Forest.

2.) 17 Jan 2017 20:46:06



05 Jan 2017 18:09:30
The young lad from Arsenal is apparently a very good player and I'm excited to see the creatitivity he's going to bring, however, I'm gutted it's just a loan deal! Celtic are bringing in signings to add to a squad better than what we have and it looks likely that they will be offered 20m+ for dembele which will be invested into first XI starters. King has to do all he can to end this Cashley deal and/ or get another investor ASAP. MW has zero chance of closing the gap and I strongly believe no manager could.
Second in league is best we can hope for in current situation .



27 Dec 2016 23:56:16
Leon Osman looks likely option. He's a Free and fits the dcm position and gives us experience in middle of park. He's friends with Davie Weir.

1.) 28 Dec 2016 15:56:39
He's done! He was finished his last year at Goodison. No way should we be considering Osman. We are 10 years too late with that one!

2.) 28 Dec 2016 16:13:08
Smacks of desperation if you ask me.

He may or may not work in the short term but he is not going to help us narrow the gap between us and Celtic. In addition he has no sell on value so will not help our financial situation.

3.) 28 Dec 2016 17:43:45
I think Hourihane would be a good one and Jota, Osman would have been ok 5 years ago.



27 Dec 2016 16:43:06
Team I'd go with for old firm:

Hodson/ Tav Hill Wilson Wallace/ Hodson
Crooks Halliday
Waggy Garner Miller

Hodson at number2 if Wallace doesn't make it.
I'd also gamble with Crooks coming in as we will be outmuscled with Holt and Halliday in.
Front 3 will put in a shift and I'd bring on pace at 60mins. Dodoo, McKay and O'Hal.

1.) 27 Dec 2016 17:55:06
Crooks will not start, we won't see the best of crooks until next season, well that is if he can get a full pre season under his belt.

2.) 27 Dec 2016 20:04:53
I agree Crooks prob won't start and no doubt McKay will as will Kiernan. If MW starts team which most predict I can't see us getting a result. above team is how I'd go.

3.) 27 Dec 2016 21:07:08
Hodson Kiernan Wilson Wallace ( if fit )
Holt Windass
Waggy Garner Miller

Crooks isn't going to be ready to next season and I'd love Rossiter to be fit for the game as he's a natural in def midfield but I'd reckon he's another that needs a good pre season under his belt!

We need someone with a midfield engine as much as I like Halliday I just don't think he's the one but he plays for the jersey every week ( apart from putting the ball into row z the other week lol )

No matter who plays the game always gets won in midfield so we need to get that right firstly!

4.) 28 Dec 2016 17:24:08
If Crooks plays the game will fly by him. He has only played 3 games in last 6 months and hasn't played a full 90 mins it would be very unwise to pitch him in.



01 Dec 2016 21:31:59
To the sack Warburton brigade. 2 questions
Bearing in mind it's not even Xmas.
If he changes formation and the team starts winning would u still want him sacked?
Who would u replace him with?

{Ed039's Note - The problem is Scotty, he is too stubborn to change the system, which is a huge flaw in his management skills, great managers through the years have had that adaptability, whether its switching from attacking to defensive or vice versa, but Warbs believes in this "total football" philosophy which just isn't working at the moment. I am myself not in the sack the gaffer brigade but at the same time I would not be too upset of a change was made)

1.) 01 Dec 2016 22:34:30
I previously said that if the car is crashing, swapping the driver doesn't change a thing.

I agree with Ed though, teams know what we will do, how we will set up and they even know when we will change the subs!

If there is no change for Aberdeen at the weekend then I am going to struggle with my views on our management team.

2.) 01 Dec 2016 22:40:43
I agree Ed . to play that style of football u need a certain type of player which we don't have in Scottish football. Barcelona and Man City can do it because they have cash to buy the specialised player for each team role. MW has to go back to basics and find a style that suits what he has at the minute.
I wouldn't sack him Yet. He deserves till end of season to percevere and fail or change and maybe finish 2nd. He has plenty of time till end of season to get it right. If he continues with Plan A better he will be gone.

3.) 01 Dec 2016 22:53:24
Scotty, two questions:
What's Christmas go to do with it?
What makes you think that he will change his intransigent stance on tactics?

4.) 01 Dec 2016 23:16:35
Scotty how much time do u want to give him? He used the word "project" very wisely. this isn't a project, this is rangers. If 11 men can't fight on a park for the badge then we're in a bad state. Pass the buck or blame whoever but this is his team and his project which is a car crash. He's lost majority of fans and the dressing room. time to go.

5.) 01 Dec 2016 23:25:04
Echy, was saying Xmas as it's just hit Dec. we have only played 15 games so far and he has a Jan window to bring in players (prob loan) .
If he doesn't change his tactics he will be gone. Surely even the most stubborn man must try and save his job by trying every option to succeed.

6.) 01 Dec 2016 23:33:15
I think the 4.3.3 is going to start getting used less and less in future as even Barcelona can struggle when teams play them high up the park, same goes for Man City and they've got players we can only dream of so what chance have we got. Warburton will never change so he has to go asap.

7.) 02 Dec 2016 07:10:16
But it's not just 15 games. It's been this way since last season's cup semi final!

8.) 02 Dec 2016 07:36:58
And he doesn't bring in,

A. The right kind of player

B. Ones that are good enough

Needed centre backs - didn't get good ones

Needed a goal scorer/ target man - didn't get any.

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?

If rumours are true and there is a genuine interest and bid then 100% he will be sold. Cash would then be invested in the team in the summer. I'd keep M OH and give him a run of games and Dodoo. Still reckon we will achieve 2nd place so need to panic buy in Jan. Let's assess our current loan players and identify targets.

The boy is a standout at his age for both rangers and Scotland tho he is only 15 and built like a 15yr old school kid. I don't think he can play till he's 16 but I'd def have him in and around the first team so when he is exposed to being in the squad it's familiar.
I really hope we can keep this kid at rangers and I'd be using ex Celtic youth Feruz as perfect example. This kid may have earned good cash but he hasn't kicked a ball since he went to Chelsea and couldn't even get game time at hibs on loan.

I really hope both r with a view to perm deal tho doubting that Hyndman deal is.
Fans need to be realistic about youth that we have as the few gems we do have are still kids and have physic of a kid.
Hardie and Walsh at 19 and 20 aren't good enough to get a start at St Mirren! They def aren't answer for Rangers at current moment . Both had a chance to play and shine in championship and neither has come close to doing so.

The middle of the park is the problem. Holt and Halliday offer zero protection to defence, they don't break down play. They don't create chances or chip in with enough goals. They offer nothing.
Against full time players they have struggled, last year fitness was only diff, they won't and can't dictate a game or change pace of game. Crooks and Rossiter were meant to be engine room and I sympathise with MW fir there lack of availability. Middle of park is priority for signings as it's heartbeat of every successful side.

I think u need a reality check Blazer! Did u honestly expect us to put in a challenge this year? After where we have been? Yes we have a much bigger budget than everyone else outwith Celtic . second place was only ever going to be realistic target and I'm confident that will be achieved. I agree performances haven't been great and lessons need to be learned in terms of shape and starters. Winning last years semi lead to false expectations. MW will be given this year and next to try and shape a squad capable of challenging Celtic on a shoe string budget, whilst they will increase their spending. Next few years are going to be long unless big investment materialises.
