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.



12 Jul 2017 22:55:15
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

Every one of the 11 that starts tonight deserves our backing 100% for the full 90mins. Game is live on TV . Let's show what it means to be Rangers and forget about the board and manager situation, leave that for Thur!
Our team needs us to create an atmosphere and back them like never before. We need to be the 12th man and roar us on to victory, losing tonight could end our seasons hopes of finishing 2nd and the knock on effect is catastrophic!

1.) 29 Nov 2017 12:54:15
Scotty, the team have had unbelievable backing this season. The atmosphere at the start of the Hibs game was great me if the best I have witnessed in 40 years of attending games. The team need to give the fans back something tonight. No pulling out of tackles, no hiding, playing in your position and winning their personal battles. We also need to take our chances. As always I’m sure everyone wants them to do well at ibrox or wherever. Come on Rangers. It’s time to stand up and be counted.

2.) 29 Nov 2017 16:37:59
Sorry my typing is rubbish. Start of the Hibs game was one of the best. Ibrox was truest rocking for the first time in many a year but team fell away badly that day.

If the press and rumours are to be believed then it's between McInnes and Moyes. McInnes will cost us 800k, Moyes nothing.
Moyes will demand a bigger salary and budget than McInnes.
Walter Smith heavily backs McInnes and Sir Alex did likewise for Moyes with Man Utd job.
Both have had some success with clubs and yet haven't set the heather alight.
Personally I think it should be one of these guys but I can't decide which I'd prefer. This next appointment may be one of the biggest in clubs history, it's got to be right, we are skint and the thought of Celtic doing 10 would be torture.
Thoughts guys.

1.) 04 Nov 2017 09:25:52
Moyes for Rangers and then mcinnes can take the scotland job!

2.) 04 Nov 2017 09:29:54
Its a hard 1 Scotty, i think Mcinnes is the “safer” option and we know he's built a good side at beating the rest at least. on the flip side we have Moyes whos managed at the highest level imaginable (epl&la liga) . and before anyone jumps the gun, Man U was always going to be a big ask after Sir Alex and Sunderland are a basket case of a club then he went and tried his hand and failed in Spain which is no embarrasment. so that's my case for both of them Scotty

3.) 04 Nov 2017 09:35:36
none of those two would stop 10 in a row, serial losers, we have to have someone with a winning mentality and not be frightened by the opposition as clearly mcinnes is with cetic it will end in tears with them two

4.) 04 Nov 2017 10:04:46
I'd go for Billy reid his Hamilton accies side performed well above their weight. Gus poyet mentioned this morning too great player would be interesting as a manager. Billy reid though knows the British game and now the Scandinavian game too done well everywhere, where mcinnes and moyes have not plus I know all three were rangers men, moyes played for them mcinnes has been snidey about us in the press over the last few years, Billy reid would jump at the chance. Let's face it moyes would make us hard to score against but equally as hard for us to score and very hard to watch, mcinnes is in two minds well we are not a club to be in two minds about we are rangers the most successful club in the world so go for the guy who wouldn't hesitate and would give us good football, known for bringing on youth and a rocket up the arse to those lagging. Billy reid all the way

5.) 04 Nov 2017 10:44:20
Van bronckhurst for me

6.) 04 Nov 2017 13:32:24
I would make an approach for harry redknapp brilliant manager and the only man that can take on Brendan Rodgers with the finances we have available

7.) 04 Nov 2017 13:41:13
Mcinnes all day. The sheep board gave him buttons to spend but look what he has done for them. With the right support, structure and finances behind him he will make a good job of it. He knows Scottish football and what we are all about and will be able to attract the likes of Moult, Shinnie, Maclean and others to strengthen the team in a short time.



26 Oct 2017 01:43:40
Ok so if the board do react and end Pedros tenure, who should be brought in?
McInnes is no for me, if he had won the league or a cup or even beaten Celtic once or twice then maybe.
I also don't believe that bringing back McLeish or Walter is the answer either.
De Boer style of play just wouldn't work with current set of players and it's not suited to Scottish football.
Seriously and realistically who should be brought in and who would want this job? Do we go foreign or British?

1.) 26 Oct 2017 06:18:39
I would say it has to be a British manager. If Pedro is away, it needs to be someone that can go in and get the best out of players that they haven't signed. Might be over ambitious, but I can't think of anyone that would be able to do that more than Sam Allardyce.

2.) 26 Oct 2017 07:27:32
Pedro needs to go now! If we're honest the warning signs were there last season when he took over from Warburton. The guy's record is abysmal with no sign of improving. Where do we go? We need a manager we've heard of for a start! I've heard people mention bid Sam on here. Do we really want another money grabbing shady character involved with our club? For me, it's a no! It's big Eck for me.

3.) 26 Oct 2017 08:02:01
Got to be Michael O'neil, look how he's made northern Ireland so hard to beat

4.) 26 Oct 2017 08:11:57
I'd give Ronald Koeman a chance, but would prefer a Rangers minded gaffer. 3 times we have tried a foreign manager and 2 have spectacularly failed.

5.) 26 Oct 2017 08:50:57
Michael O'Neill is a great shout mate and would be a fantastic signing. The problem here is we need to get someone in right now to try and stop the rot. As much as I would love to see O'Neill, do you honestly think he would give up the chance of getting N. Ireland to a world cup to come to us? The days we can get guys to choose us over everything else are long gone! And as for Koeman - where do I start!

6.) 26 Oct 2017 09:20:05
ChorleyGer, you'd give Keoman a chance?

He was on over 6m a year at Everton. Categorically not happening mate.

7.) 26 Oct 2017 09:29:52
Got to be big sam allerdyce he said he would be interested in scotland job last week

8.) 26 Oct 2017 09:39:41
Can't believe people are mentioning big eck the guy couldn't manage a team in Egypt. For me I would look at pardew good British manager with murty as his no2.

9.) 26 oct 2017 09:55:58
rtid ----- sam allardyce with duncan ferguson in his management team

10.) 26 Oct 2017 10:16:09
FAm thinking along the likes of Alan Pardew, Billy Davies and such their is plenty of experienced managers out there. Surly one must be able to get it right and the board must get it right this time

11.) 26 Oct 2017 10:22:24
It’s time for Pedro to go he’s had a fair chance board have backed him got players he wanted they don’t seem to be playing for him his tactics aren’t good his methods of management are poor hopefully the board can see what us supports see and bring his tenure to a end today+Murty would be better he has tactical awareness passion knows the club could organise the team better get them fitter+add a few Scottish lads in January+not many good managers available who could take us forward ( big Sam I think would be great but don’t think he would come due to finances) have supported RANGERS since a kid now 52 so have seen some of the best players and teams RANGERS have had and over the past few years some of the worst heres hoping onwards and upwards 🇬🇧🇬🇧

12.) 26 Oct 2017 11:57:03
Big Eck til the end of the season. he showed when he came in the 1st time he could get the best from the under achievers

13.) 26 Oct 2017 11:59:30
Whoever it is they will need to be fluent in Portuguese as well as English

14.) 26 Oct 2017 12:03:48
We won't get Allardyce (retired), O'Neil (won't leave NI before WC) or Koeman (pretty sure he fancies himself to be Barcelona manager) . De Boer there's maybe a slight chance after his Palace disaster but like you said Scotty would the style of play work? As for a Rangers minded gaffer, the only decent ones are retired. Pedro's not doing well, but I think we'd be worse off sacking him paying compensation, replacing him with another gamble, buying a new team, waiting for it to gel, failing, and starting again. Need patience.

15.) 26 Oct 2017 12:03:58
Either Giovanni van Bronkhorst, Sam Allardyce, Alan Pardew or a punt on the Leeds Manager (sorry can’t remember his name) Wolves manager

16.) 26 Oct 2017 12:05:40
Its mcleish I said this months ago, he had been on standby incase things don't work.



22 Oct 2017 12:22:35
Miller won't be in todays squad and he knows his time is up but this is due to him not being considered a first XI pick. Looks like his salary will be freed up in Jan.

1.) 22 Oct 2017 12:55:01
He's not in the squad because him and ped fell out scotty otherwise he would be on the bench at the very least. Miller is a better option than herrera holt etc.

2.) 22 Oct 2017 15:47:45
Penas worse than a man doon if he's not scoring

3.) 22 Oct 2017 16:25:37
If Pedro had been winning week in week out then I would be backing him over miller but we aren't so maybe miller realises this guy is hopeless. It may tell its own story with miller chatting away with king at the game with club tie on. I think the board may be behind miller and not Pedro

4.) 22 Oct 2017 18:47:55
hamiltonger, hope so

5.) 22 Oct 2017 20:18:38
Let down again bears. the search for 3 wins in a row continues. a club our size hasn't won 3 games in a row in 11 months, that's not good enuf i'm afraid. i actually don't think we played bad, probably the best team til they scored but how Pena gets a game is beyond me. he literally contributes nothing. i think Morelos is enjoying to much of the Columbian nightlife if he says Penas the best player he's played with



13 Oct 2017 21:43:32
Was Dorrans best game, he ran the show! Pena took his goals well and Alves could have kept his suit and brogues on. but what impressed me the most was the fight and aggression we showed all over the park. Good performance and hopefully get a wee run going.

I posted this a few times last week (kinda wish I hadn’t now) the deal was agreed in every way Inc compensation for Dons. It had pretty much all been sorted before the double header and contract was only thing needing signed. The players knew McInnes was coming before the first game. McInnes changing his mind pretty much with pen in hand shocked everyone inc Aberdeen who rumour had it were ready to make a move for Ross Jack. The board had not followed up any due diligence on 2nd or 3rd or any other options due to agreement and this lead to the piss poor statement being released.

McInnes had verbally agreed to join and everything was sorted out, except the signature on contract. He changed his mind at the last minute and didn’t want to leave Aberdeen by resigning, if permission had been granted by Aberdeen he wouldn’t have had second thoughts on it. This has been one big **** up all round and I don’t think anyone comes out of it looking good. Rangers are back to square 1 in manager search and if Aberdeen don’t finish 2nd where does that leave McInnes? He’s knocked back Sunderland and Rangers only way Is Down.

I hear what your saying mate and I think Murty has done a great job. However in football ‘What Ifs’ can make or break u!
I’d actually like him in as part of new first team set up and hoping he isn’t tempted by offer from another club to go. He deserved the adulation after last 2 games.

So because you’ve not heard from him, the doctor, you doubt contact has been made? Your post don’t make sense, what has them having dinner when Pedro was in charge got to do with anything?

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.

Murty knew McInnes was first choice and that move wold be made after the AGM and dons double header. He has done a great job considering and deserves all the accolade, however, he also knew he would be returning back to youth set up with reputation intact. I reckon he will be a manger one day and a very good one at that. Hopefully he continues to progress with structure at rangers.

McInnes will be named in next 48hr and Aberdeen to move quickly and replace him with Jack Ross.
