A bid for Crooks has been accepted.

1.) 13 Jul 2017 14:40:49
Quite a few clubs interested. maybe he's better than we realised

2.) 13 Jul 2017 15:17:53
He is good enough and was never given a chance. Doubt if Pedro even saw him in training.

3.) 13 Jul 2017 16:55:35
Aye he's that good he's going to those big guns Northampton Town.

4.) 13 Jul 2017 17:18:35
We'll never know how good he was. or bad for that matter

5.) 13 Jul 2017 20:39:07
Can't believe how many fans actually rate Matt Crooks I remember he hadn't even kicked a ball for Rangers and there were fans choking for him to play and sort out Rangers CDM issue. He then planed against A honking Hearts side and looked miles outnof his depth.

Out with the old, in with the new.

6.) 14 Jul 2017 10:29:24
He clearly wasnt match fit against Hearts. Dunno why everyone is belittling his likely new club Northampton Tn. They're probably better than us if Euro games anything to go by.



16 Feb 2017 00:47:12
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.

The names being put about on here that we should go for are:

right/ left backs

Who do you think should be priority and best value? If we only have X amount to spend should that go on a full back when Wallace and Tav would walk into other Spl teams with exception of Celtic?
We could prob get Moult and Cadden for cost of Walker .

1.) 21 Aug 2017 10:06:38
moult would add something different up front and with his low cost would be well worth the chance (no oun intended)
for me moult and a full back as our captain was terrible against hearts better than hodson but not good enough



08 Jul 2017 20:50:38
I'm on hols with family just now in Mexico and the locals rave about Pedro. Not one has had a bad thing to say about him and they think he is destined for EPL! Pedro has a very good rep here in Mexico and he def deserves a at minimum a season.
They are also saying the Mexicans we have brought in are very good players tho they doubt they will settle in quickly which is worrying.

1.) 08 Jul 2017 21:32:14
Try and get Pedro job before you come back

2.) 08 Jul 2017 23:33:37
I can back you up on that post Scotty. I had 3 or 4 Mexican friends when I was at college in the states and they all praised him when I asked them what they thought of him a couple of months ago. They also mentioned that Abella would've been a great signing so it's annoying that rumour died and nothing has happened.

3.) 09 Jul 2017 14:19:57
So his reputation is so great in Mexico that he should be given a season.
That's a bit of a faint praise.



11 Jun 2017 21:23:44
Liam Boyce apparantly has a 500k release clause. Surely he's worth a punt at this price!

1.) 12 Jun 2017 09:27:47
That's a year's wages for a £10k a week player, and if you add on his wages, it's a wage for a £18-20k a week player. No thanks, not in a million years.



04 Jun 2017 22:31:29
Anyone think we should be going in for the young lad Knox at livi now we appear to have some cash to spend? Warburton apparently making him a priority target for Notts Forrest.

1.) 04 Jun 2017 23:11:10
Yeah Scotty! Know should b a must for us! We'll regret it if we don't take a punt imo



03 May 2017 15:59:26
With the current situation we face and let's be honest it's pretty bleak, with no real signs or evidence of any healthy investment in playing squad or a sugar daddy whose willing to fling disposable income at us. It would be crazy to not consider the free transfers of Naismith, Lafferty and others! Let's move on or our club will never recover. These guys want to come back, have no fee and would play for much less than they could get elsewhere. I wasn't happy with how they left but they were badly advised with statements and I'd be happy for them to come back and make it up to fans!

1.) 03 May 2017 16:39:27
Do you not think his £50k a week wages would be an issue?

2.) 03 May 2017 16:49:54
Naismith Wants to move back up to Scotland apparently. So I highly doubt wages will be an issue.

3.) 03 May 2017 17:09:42
They are on £0 wages, given that they are OUT OF CONTRACT.

Still wouldn't take them though.

4.) 03 May 2017 17:42:23
Naismith isn't out of contract though and if he is wasim sure he would find a club

5.) 03 May 2017 17:43:33

Apparently? So really you don't know and are just guessing that he wants to come back to Scotland

6.) 03 May 2017 17:45:28
Bleak? That's was 4 years ago, now things are positive if not ideal.

No debt other than to shareholders, no impending liquidation or administration, 3rd in the top league. not what we want but definitely not bleak!

7.) 04 May 2017 08:46:55
I am a great believer in 'never go back'
Once a player leaves of his own choice then he should not be brought back.
Very rarely works out well

8.) 04 May 2017 10:15:34
Things were unbelievably positive a few years ago after a multi-million pound share issue, with zero debt and a chance to build something incredible with a huge fan base in what was a real position of envy. Sadly though a number of people lined their own pockets, and took advantage of the club for personal gain. We should remember that the fans are not just the most valuable part of this club but the only thing of tangible value, this is where the power lies.

9.) 04 May 2017 12:59:24
Bengy, according to his best pal Kris Boyd, who can't keep his mouth shut, Naismith is looking to leave England and move back up here.

Also Bengy, apparently - As far as one knows.

As far as I know he wants to move back up here.

10.) 04 May 2017 18:24:51
Bengy who's on 50k a week in the championship?

St Johnstone

I expect the gap between 1st and 2nd to be at least half of last years and 2nd and 3rd to be tight with the others bunched together.

Eck his stats in spl for last few seasons suggest he is a good player and he's been playing in a poor hearts side. He is also exactly what we need positionally in our team, he's direct and scores goals. He is a fan and wants to play for us, hearts either take the offer or he signs contract with us in Jan fir hee haw.
On another note I've heard that Celtic see Moult as a solution for centre forward and will pay the 500k

If it is those 2 we are giving ourselves a really good chance of competing. This year is about getting us close to Celtic and hopefully next year challenging for title.

Would bite your hand off for a 1M offer for Fod. Tho reckon it will be nearer 700k. Alnwick would step in comfortably and don't think we need another keeper in. Cash would go on Walker or Naismith (rumour just won't go away and he wants to come home similar to Dorrans) .

01 Jul 2017 14:49:33
Personally I think Walker would have a bigger impact on our team and spending the cash on him makes more business sense also. Barjonas should also be kept and not sold as part of any Dorrans deal. 'd rather we went for Walker and another with the 1.5m or push the boat out and spend 2m to get Walker and McLean.

I've said before the figures being mentioned are miles off! We haven't even spent half of what's being quoted. The days of spending 2.5m for 1 player are well gone

I expect at turn of year a review will be carried out and targets set. He deserves to take his team to end of season and assess again from there. Let his team settle in and it's very early doors to be making panic decisions

I think we have spent all we are going to and trust me the figures being spoken of that we have spent are way off. Even if they included the add ons for league win and euro run they still inflated. Forget the 1M for Waggy also, it was still good business but what I hear it was closer to £300k
