Have seen on a couple of rumours sites that - Rangers preparing to bid for Russel Martin. I bloody hope it is just rumour.

1.) 15 May 2018 11:57:31
Absolutely not a chance!


2.) 15 May 2018 12:09:39
Nobody that has seen Russel Martin play for us this season would attempt to sign him


3.) 15 May 2018 12:14:21
You better be joking. Please no.


4.) 15 May 2018 12:31:10
This better not happen. Terrible defender.


5.) 15 May 2018 12:32:48
please no!


6.) 15 May 2018 12:33:07
No Thanks

No where near good enough. Should be playing league 2 next season! Terrible defender

I think Russell Martin is on Rangers Rumours hitting the disagree button 😂


10.) 15 May 2018 13:55:47
It's a non-story. It's based on Allen telling the press yesterday that EVERY loan player will get the courtesy of a conversation. Nothing more. Some sites have just done 2+2=5 and made up a fiction about Martin being offered a deal.


11.) 15 May 2018 14:51:02
Would be the worst news ever.


12.) 15 May 2018 14:52:28
No no no no no and just more no
I would rather play a man down that have him in he team again


13.) 15 May 2018 15:48:20
If we sign him we are doomed. Bomb scare of a defender. Previously we have signed older defenders and it has worked great but not this time. He's no daily, weir or gough. Jersey too heavy for him.


14.) 16 May 2018 15:14:07
He is absolute honking as a defender. He makes Big Efe at the Hivs look world class!


15.) 16 May 2018 15:22:08
I hope not he should be on his way back to Norwich and he could drop Jason Cummings off in Nottingham on the way past they are both not good enough

I know you can’t just go by the betting but, I see that Graham Potter has went from 25/ 1 to 8/ 1. Are the club having someone else in mind just in case? If Gerrard doesn’t accept the job that would be a major
embarrassment for the club. I just worry that, if he really wanted the job, what is the difference with announcing it today and announcing it at the end of the week? Is he waiting to find out about what is maybe happening at the club (investment, changes to the board, etc)

Shaft1690

1.) 30 Apr 2018 14:04:24
Odds change due to getting patterns. He obviously has had a lot of people putting £££s on his name lately so the bookies have reacted by slashing the odds.


2.) 30 Apr 2018 14:47:16
Thanks for explaining how betting works. I never would have guessed that is what happens. The question really was, why are lots of people placing bets on Potter if they all think Gerrard is nailed on to get the job.


3.) 30 Apr 2018 15:04:10
To try and win some cash would be my guess.


4.) 30 Apr 2018 16:09:12
Because it’s a gamble. If you’re willing to stick a fiver on it not much point picking the odds on


5.) 30 Apr 2018 17:30:14
Well shaft if that’s what the question really was you uttered no such words in your original post. Not even close. Poor attempt at a save mate 😂


6.) 30 Apr 2018 17:46:00

Don’t get your hopes up regarding Gerrard. He won’t be accepting the position.

Gerrard has soft spot for smell. tic same as john terry cannot see him manage the gers but you never no in football


4.) 24 Apr 2018 21:46:59
Apparently king and gerrard went for a pre match dinner together at the art school restraint. I'm still undecided as to wether he would be a good appointment due to his lack of expiernce but it does look increasingly more likely.


5.) 24 Apr 2018 23:20:01
Gerrard would be just as absurd an appointment as Pedro.


 

 

26 Dec 2017 23:38:53
I think realistic signing targets could include:
Lasse Vibe
Adam Reach
Wayne Routledge
Andy King
Jordan Jones
Aden Flint
Joe Bryan
James Madisson.

Shaft1690

1.) 27 Dec 2017 00:13:34
Aden Flint would cost around £10m. Premiership club's after him. We would struggle to tempt Jordan Jones just now.


2.) 27 Dec 2017 00:42:01
There is a difference of being rated at £10 million and a club actually getting £10 million pound. Not sure a 28 year old championship defender would sell for that amount. At the start of the season Birmingham bid £5 million for Flint and Joe Bryan. If he does go for that, then good on him. Remember Celtic said Dembele was rated at £50 million now they are talking about £18 million.


3.) 27 Dec 2017 02:36:12
To many drinks this Christmas shaft, Routledge is on approx 35 grand a week at Swansea. Aden Flint is wanted be bigger clubs than us we couldn’t afford him. Even players on that list like Vibe or Andy King we would struggle to sell. When will people realise we are still skint. We couldn’t tempt Aberdeen’s manager away from them what chance do we have of getting half these players. Kenny McLean is about the calibre of player we can attract now and will do until we sort ourselves out on and off the park.


4.) 27 Dec 2017 08:21:36
Free signings and loans cause were skint


5.) 27 Dec 2017 09:20:02
Why do people keep posting these silly lists of players we could tempt, we have very little money and if we are honest Rangers are not a club that would interest a lot of players we have became a circus we are a top six club and just that, until we get a board who can appoint a decent manager who then can spend what little money we have then kick some arses to get the best out of the garbage we have then we may get second, this is not an attack on Murty he has been hung out to dry by this board, they have appointed two managers who were not good enough then took six weeks to go round in a circle and give the job to our U20s manager, even Kilmarnock can do better they have a manager now who is second only to Brendan in experience and look how it has kicked them on, I think we can expect more of these dark days until we get some decent investment but I won't hold my breath on that one


6.) 27 Dec 2017 10:42:04
Seriously? The money that’s spent in England and you don’t think a 28 year old championship defender would go for 10 mill. Few to many drinks 😜 would take them all but they’re out our league


7.) 27 Dec 2017 12:49:49
When did celtic say MD was valued at 50m. You on the glue?


8.) 27 Dec 2017 15:04:07

9.) 27 Dec 2017 15:50:40
rayman-all you mhanks were bumping your gums off after his first half a season playing and the price you were all shouting about was 50 million, shaft is only quoting what you all were saying at that time, you lot were all sniffing the old evo stick


10.) 27 Dec 2017 17:41:20
True blue u have a distorted sense of the truth, then again your a sevco fan u thought u could win the league.
Most were saying 25m yea some were saying more but only after some of the transfers down south like 50m for a 30yr old right back.
Truth is we will get what someone pays and my money is on 22-26m, then again if Morelos is valued at 10m maybe The Moose is worth 50 lol.


11.) 27 Dec 2017 17:55:28
Yip they sure were mr musa dumdbell worth 50 mill it was so funny i'm still in stiches with laughter after all it did win the best joke award for 2017

Should Morelos leave in the summer, are there a few strikers Rangers could possibly look at to sign in the summer?

Possibilities could be:
1- Sam Lammers
2- Neil Maupay
3- Oliver McBurnie
4- - Eddie Nketiah (loan)
5- Patrick Bamford

Other possible loans could be:

Charlie Austin
Danny Ings
Marek Vydra

Also Giovanni dos Santos currently without a club.

Brentford were asking 20 m for maupay in jan scrub that off. Couldn't afford ings or Austin wages.

Swansea quoting 8-10 million for mcburnie
England not our market for quality strikers.


3.) 10 Mar 2019 09:40:17
Patrick bamford has consistently struggled for fitness and goals wherever he's been so not him.


4.) 10 Mar 2019 13:23:54
england isn't a market we should buy from, its the market we should sell too. we need another morelos ie uncover a gem, does the business and sell on after a couple of seasons.

we cannot replace like for like because we can't afford it and the other point even if you paid 10M for a striker there is no guarantee he would do it in our league.

wonder how may goals Morelos would have if he had the likes of a young laudrop serving him crosses.

Yes because dundee never played him after he signed pre contract so didn't play in the early rounds.

Ed could you create a wee poll:

Docherty or Davis,

Hardie or Defoe,

Simple poll to see who fans would rather have in squad. Personally I would have Docherty and Hardie. I have always liked Davis and Defoe but not sure if they improve the squad.

Shaft1690

{Ed033's Note -


Rangers Players Roll


1.) 31 Jan 2019 20:44:16
Docherty over Davis all day long
Defoe 2 starts and struggled big-time both games so would have went with hardy.


2.) 31 Jan 2019 22:22:52
Davis is very neat and tidy and that is due to age and experience. However Defoe has, so far, failed to live up to expectations but i personally have doubts Hardie can do any better due to Jermaines experience.


3.) 31 Jan 2019 23:51:10

4.) 01 Feb 2019 01:18:26
I’m sorry bathgate bear but I’ve got to laugh at that post. Defoe has failed to live up to expectations? He’s played 2 games! And scored in one of them.


5.) 01 Feb 2019 01:42:10
Davis miles better than Docherty. Watch a rerun of Wednesday night. The range of passes, the intelligent runs, should have had a penalty. Brings others into the game.
Docherty is a decent player but still learning. Time is on his side.


6.) 01 Feb 2019 14:03:25
Scottsdad agree with all of your post.


 

 

04 Jan 2019 10:01:49
I see Ryan Gould linked with loan move to Hibs. Surely he could be worth a punt until end of season. Still not seen us linked with a creative midfielder.

Shaft1690

1.) 04 Jan 2019 11:29:45
Rangers will watch to see how much he has improved and if he holds up well I am sure Rangers will then look to try and buy in the summer. At least at hibs it gives Gerrard and the staff a chance to see how good he is.


2.) 04 Jan 2019 14:02:52
He can't be linked with a loan move to Hibs he's already on a season long loan with a clause to let him out if the loan if a top club comes in to buy him.


 

 

26 Dec 2018 18:16:28
Some people seem to very negative about the team this season. Yes we want to see beating Hibs, but over the last couple of seasons Rangers wouldn't have come back to beat St. Johnstone after going a goal behind, they would have been luck to come back and get a draw. Yes, the team has been inconsistent, but I feel we are improving. Of course we would all live to see Rangers win the league, but after the last few seasons I wanted to see improvement and challenging. Gerrard is also still learning the job and I am happy to give him time. Hopefully we can win the league but as long as we keep close and finish a good second, I feel we will be heading in the correct direction. let's stay positive and get behind the team and continue to support them. !

Shaft1690

1.) 26 Dec 2018 18:57:48
So, coming back to beat St Johnstone does it for you? Wow! If that statement does not prove how low our standards and expectations have dropped, nothing will.


2.) 26 Dec 2018 19:07:55
Compared to league table last season after 20 games:

This season we:
. Have lost 3 games less
. 3 points more
. Goal difference is 12 better
. Scored 3 more goals
. Conceded 9 goals less
. Over 40 more shots on target.


3.) 26 Dec 2018 19:16:30
slk73 of course I would have loved to see us beat St. Johnstone 3 or 4 nothing but we didn’t, but we got 3 points that I don’t think we would have got last season. We have to be realistic, we don’t have a squad strong enough to beat these teams convincingly at the moment. I want to see us win everything but then again we have to be realistic. I suppose it bring up the old adage if performance against results.


4.) 26 Dec 2018 19:26:58
Brilliant! Are we playing better?
Ok Stato, here's a question. How many points have we dropped against the top teams in the league? Count the points dropped against Celtic, Aberdeen, Hibs and Kilmarnock. Is that progress?


5.) 26 Dec 2018 20:07:33
We have yet to win a big game this season against the teams who qualified for Europe. 2 defeats to a quite woeful Aberdeen side, 2 draws against a struggling Hibs side and a poor performance against them. Until we start winning the big games then the jury is out on how good Gerrard is.


6.) 26 Dec 2018 20:08:50
Do you not think losing 3 games less already is a step in the right direction?

I agree the board have placed Murty in the firing line to take all the bullets. Murty always spoke well and took all the flak at the press conferences. Yes, Murty is not a Rangers manager. But I think the board put him in a position where he was never going to win. The players he has are no where near good enough to challenge for the league. But if the players need to be told how to play when it comes to an Old Firm game, then maybe they shouldn’t be at the club. The players are professionals (allegedly) and should be able to adjust on the pitch to deal with what is facing them.

There is a difference between offering a high profile name the job and the high profile name accepting the job. Remember Gerrard still has not accepted the job.

I still think it is a bit of a gamble if Gerrard accepts. I do hope I’m wrong and he is a success. If he does accept, then he will have to get the season of to great start. Think he would need to at least win first 5 league games to get a positive start. I am also unsure about getting the higher quality players that we want. Yes Gerrard May attract these players but, will the board pay the money. Although I suppose if he is the new manager the this may attract some other investors into the club.

I’m sure that it would not only be Gerrard discussing things like the transfer budget available. I’m sure whoever he was to have as part of his management team would have had a say in the sort of funds they will expect to have available.

Don’t think getting rid of Gerrard is the answer right now. We can’t just keep getting rid of managers every time when things are not going as well as a lot of people want. Think we need some serious investment into the club so we can buy players instead of getting loan players all the time. Yes it’s dissapointing times just now, but we are supporters to support the team through thick and thin. There will be quite a different team next season so think Gerrard needs to be given till Christmas at least. Next season there probably won’t be Worral, Defoe, Davis, Morelos. Also not sure if Kent will sign, not sure if Barasic and Tavarnier will still be there. Not sure any other manager would do better with the players we have.

We don’t need to give others the opportunity to target the club by having a minority of the fans still singing these songs. Would like supporters clubs also coming out and condemning this behaviour. We love our club and the majority of supporters follow the club without participating in this behaviour. let's move forward. let's not make ourself easy targets. Yes, other clubs do similar things but that does not make it right. I know a lot of people who will not take children to games because of this type of thing.
