Nottingham Forrest bid 500,000 for McKay and rangers have knocked it back and also heard rumours our new sponsor will be emirates

1.) 15 Jun 2017 11:39:13
Our new sponsor is still 32red

2.) 15 Jun 2017 11:37:14
Already announced 32 red for another 2 yrs

3.) 15 Jun 2017 20:48:03
Brilliant just make utter pish up 😂😂



06 Feb 2017 21:05:32
Bottom line - warburton to get the sack, frank de boer to come in hopefully king will give him at least 15-20 mil to spend in the summer and get rid of the wasters at ibrox i.e.


Basically nearly what warburton has got cause they don't have the what it takes to
Play for our club.

I await the criticism but just being honest about any other manager of rangers would have been long gone by no 27 points behind from top spot and beating 3 times comfortably by your rivals and drawing 3 times with a team we should be beating and not getting smashed off hearts twice shocking.

it pains me to say this but we all need to accept this that warburton hasn't got a clue and people who think he does are deluded a walked into ibrox on Saturday and said it would be 1-1 I was expecting that rangers were never winning on Saturday sorry fellow bears just being honest again.

1.) 06 Feb 2017 22:16:19
Didnt know dave king was a magician - he's just going to magic up 15-20million (is that in transfers btw or salaries too? ) as well as a bumper pay packet for mr de boer?

Dream on, we'll be scouting for bargains for years - managers included.

2.) 06 Feb 2017 22:19:54
I wouldn't call hill a waster he has never let Rangers Dow neither has forrester.

3.) 06 Feb 2017 22:42:55
The only two on that list that should be out are Kiernan and Halliday.

4.) 06 Feb 2017 22:07:29
@southsideger - there is absolutely no chance of De Boer becoming manager. And there's even less chance of DK handing anyone a £20 million transfer kitty. So you can count yourself as one of the deluded but for different reasons.

5.) 06 Feb 2017 23:15:26
Hill is slow as a week in the jail and harry forrester is a ball greedy player and the 15-20 mil will be put in by investors of rangers warburton needs to go and take some of the wasters with him

6.) 07 Feb 2017 01:04:17
I remember when dick was rangers coach it felt untouchable and the player transfers were like being a mini real madrid . Keep dreaming tho pal cause that's what nearly killed rangers off

7.) 07 Feb 2017 08:03:14
Monday nights are the new Saturday nights!

8.) 07 Feb 2017 09:06:06
First time poster here lads. Ill give you a name who i think could actually do a job at rangers who has a knowledge of the scottish game. Tommy Wright. Could bring him in for a fairly low compensation fee and he's used to working with a very limited budget. Could bring some much needed stability back to rangers. have seen him on the sidelines a few times and the passion the guy shows is undenieable. Could put the fear of god back into some of these current players we have. Bring on the criticism.

9.) 07 Feb 2017 09:09:49
Whyte nearly killed us off.

10.) 07 Feb 2017 11:54:57
If the answer is bringing in the St Johnstone manager then there is years of living in Celtic shadow ahead how can any hers fan want Tommy Wright that smells of Desperation

11.) 07 Feb 2017 16:30:48
So basically you want us to head down the very same road we have just come back from . Seriously some of yhe posts on here boil my p1ss. I want us to have a bit of patience here folks. Maybe warburton is not the man for the job, maybe he is but I don't want any manager given 15 -20 million that we DON'T have. If we get taken over by a cash rich super daddy then fair enough but as we stand throwing money into it is pure stupidity

12.) 08 Feb 2017 22:20:19
Irrespective of whether Warburton stays or goes we should have seen the last of Kiernan and Halliday but what is the betting that Warburton finds a way of bringing them both back into the team!

13.) 08 Feb 2017 06:55:38
There's no way we will be going down that route again anytime soon, we will be looking for bargains for years yet but we do need to replace our manager asap as he is way out his depth now with very mediocre players who most of them if any at all have increased in value since they have been here I mean look at the January transfer window there was not a single bid for any of our players even the Barry McKay supposedly £6 million offer looked to be orchestrated from inside the club to get some money in in my opinion

14.) 08 Feb 2017 12:17:02
I will never forgive that greedy forrester for not passing to dodoo during last old firm at ibrox, well maybe if he scores a hat trick at parkhead, then I woke up lol

15.) 08 Feb 2017 12:31:45
id keep forrester all day long the boy has magic feet and in a better formation he would be a great wee layer

16.) 08 Feb 2017 19:44:36
Totally agree mate, really don't feel we need to spend all that tho, 3 quality signings (Bosmans but push boat out on wages would make sense) and playing a different system should get us a lot closer next year



15 Jan 2017 18:17:45
All I can say after today's game was a hope a meeting was taking place between the rangers owners and red bull cause that's what this game was all about. i hope king bites the hand off them to take control of our club it's the only way millions will be invested into rangers and not from king and co please.

1.) 15 Jan 2017 19:09:20
Yes, but we should be so lucky.

2.) 15 Jan 2017 21:03:59
I don't think anyone wants to invest big money unless they can be assured of getting rid of Ashley

3.) 15 Jan 2017 23:37:44
They won't just invest if they were to get involved they would want full control and nothing less and if there to pump millions in then I don't blame them. But why would anybody buy and invest in a club knowing all the shite with Mike Ashley and this retail contract so can't see happening.

4.) 16 Jan 2017 09:41:19
Be careful what you wish for lads. RB would require a full rebrand, stadium renamed etc. If that's what you want then fine. I could handle the stadium name being changed but not our name.

5.) 16 Jan 2017 10:49:33
Whatever the official name of the stadium becomes it will always be Ibrox to us.

6.) 16 Jan 2017 09:48:46
As much as I have respect for Dave and the way he came in and got rid of the old Board, he can't provide the level of investment Red Bull can (no pun intended).
If they are looking for a well known world wide brand in which to invest and use for advertising their own brand, then look no further. Just look at where yesterday's opposition were before RB got involved. Also wouldn't care what they called us or the stadium as we all know, it'll always be Ibrox and we'll always be Rangers.

7.) 16 Jan 2017 11:25:20
lets face it guys the name ibrox i'm sure is gaelic for badgers den.
I wouldn't care if the wanted to change the name of the stadium, personally I think red bull arena sounds better anyways lol.

in fact I don't care what comes before the name rangers if you wanna be Glasgow rangers or the rangers or red bull rangers we are rangers and we always will be.

I would definitely want red bull to buy us as they would probs say to Ashley here is a pay off now go away. And then sort us out with a good bit of investment.

saying all that though guys i doubt it will happen as we are not that lucky.

8.) 16 Jan 2017 12:27:17
RB Leipzig, New York Red Bulls and Red Bull Salzburg are their other teams so what if we were called Red Bull Glasgow?

9.) 16 Jan 2017 13:04:52
Red Bull Rangers?

Asked to give up a European place as their German club is involved?

No thanks

10.) 16 Jan 2017 14:16:17
It would have to be Red Bull Rangers! Forget Glasgow!

11.) 16 Jan 2017 14:31:32
You all hoping/ praying for this big investment from Red Bull I see, singing 10 german bombers and it broadcast across the internet is maybe not the best way to endear yourselves tho.

12.) 17 Jan 2017 03:18:41
naz that's not how it works we are in a different country to their other club/ clubs so this would not affect us

13.) 17 Jan 2017 15:08:20
Not sure that really matters ray considering its not a German company. On a side note, have to say that it's in pretty poor taste these kind of songs are sung by any teams' fans. How about adopting the Icelandic chant if you want to inspire and motivate a team.

14.) 18 Jan 2017 15:14:38
It wouldn't be Red bull rangers.



09 Nov 2016 18:00:48
This is a wee piece of news i heard about finance possibly getting better at our club. To ibrox noise and all fellow bears out there here's what i've heard. As we all know, rangers are going over to germany, in january, to play RB leipzig in a friendly. Here's what i've been told by a friend of mine who's from scotland and is an sv hamburg season ticket holder. He has it on good authority, from a prominent person who has a voice within sv hamburg, that rangers WILL be replacing 32Red (deal runs out at the end of the season) as their shirt sponsors, with RED BULL who own leipzig. They will according to him become our new shirt sponsors, taking over from 32Red at the end of this season. He also tells me that RED BULL looking to put money into rangers, with the possibility of an ibrox stand being sponsored and having the RED BULL name emblazoned on it. He also went on to tell me that RED BULL want to actually buy a football club in britain, with rangers and an unnamed english club at the top of their list. This potentially, could be tremendous news for us financially! He assures me there is a lot of talk about this in germany. Well fellow bears and ibrox noise, what's your take on this info i've given you? Must admit it could be brilliant news for us, if it comes to fruition! Has anyone else heard anything regarding this?

Please post ed.

1.) 09 Nov 2016 18:11:41
Welcome the investment but. Red Bull Rangers?

2.) 09 Nov 2016 18:29:47
Oh the fun we could have wi that lol.

3.) 09 Nov 2016 18:30:59
Would prefer a tennents.

4.) 09 Nov 2016 20:06:15
Look at all the teams red bull own, they change the name of their clubs.

5.) 09 Nov 2016 21:01:23
Red Bull are destroying football. Speak to any German fan about Red Bull and they'll tell you all you need to know.

6.) 09 Nov 2016 20:56:27
Pure Bull Rangers 😁. Oh wait. that's the current team. 😉 actually, it sounds like a possibility.

7.) 09 Nov 2016 21:37:35
Not sure how much real interest here but certainly exploratory discussions could be taking place. We are an attractive brand with significant value and will be of interest to a wide range of number of commercial companies. Looking forward AGM and hearing what Board have to say about the financial plan.

8.) 09 Nov 2016 21:38:14
Yeah i'd be ok with a stand being sponsored but that would be it they could not alter the name eh?

9.) 09 Nov 2016 21:38:18
Soons like a load o old bull, lol.

10.) 10 Nov 2016 07:39:37
What stand and if we do think what the men who have stands named after them gave to the club would some energy drink company come close I doubt it we need people who love the club to invest not a faceless corporation.

11.) 10 Nov 2016 13:41:54
Well red bull does give you wings.

12.) 10 Nov 2016 16:31:54
"Soul for sale - willing to listen to any and all offers. "

Why not just, I dunno, cut your cloth accordingly and build the foundations of a solid business model and work from there?

13.) 10 Nov 2016 22:14:47
This morning on talksport rumours linking red bull with Swindon before sherwood appointed director. Dunno if that English club they looking at?

14.) 10 Nov 2016 23:20:11
Aye poetic patient Dermot Desmond is an excellent business strategy.

15.) 11 Nov 2016 00:10:36
If you actually think that's the same thing, and are not trying to point score, then there really is no hope for you.

16.) 11 Nov 2016 06:01:32
Point score 😂. Says the man who started his comment with "Soul for sale. " Try taking a look in the mirror. You probably know more about Rangers business model than I do. Most Celtic fans seem to be either tax lawyers or business experts these days. The last I checked though Rangers seem to be hamstrung by an unscrupulous charlatan who is currently facing the wrath of the British government. He's a popular guy in the east end of Glasgow though, regardless of how he treats his workers in Derby.

17.) 11 Nov 2016 10:29:43
That wasn't point scoring, that was an interpretation of not only this latest "hope", but the countless number of such over the last four years that Rangers fans have moved towards. And you need only do a touch of research to find out all about RB and what they are doing to football but here's the abridged version: it's the football equivalent of selling your soul.

You're correct. I probably do know more about your business model because you, like many other Rangers fans, would rather compare yourself to Celtic, and in the face of any (warranted) advice or criticism, deflect and seek some sort of false equivalency. Case in point, in each reply you've managed to make it about Celtic. And that's ok, but if/ when the financial rumblings get increasingly louder, and it looks like it could be administration (or worse), you'll rest easy knowing you skipped any sort of inward interrogation, and instead tried your hardest to point score and make this about another team.

18.) 12 Nov 2016 05:26:40
Surely when a Celtic fan comes on to have a dig at Rangers it's only fair to make the comparison? Financial rumblings? Is this just what you lot live for? Desperate to see us go out of business? I'm sure another set of t-shirts are on the way for you mugs to waste your money on 😂.

19.) 12 Nov 2016 14:00:47
A. It wasn't a dig, it was a suggestion.

B. My being a Celtic fan has nothing to do with the financial problems facing your club - or my (or any other persons) to see them. If that's all you choose to focus on, then as I said above, you're as big a part of the club's problems as the charlatans you curse.

C. It doesn't need to be about whatabouterry and false equivalence - but if that is what gets you through the day, so be it.

There's only 1 person knows what it takes to win a league title and that's Walter get him back before it's too late honestly a know there will be people on here saying naw but honestly he's got what it takes to install fight and winning mentality into these players honestly

1.) 19 Aug 2017 20:45:44
I don't think he'd ruin his legacy by coming back a 3rd time

2.) 19 Aug 2017 21:03:16
To stop them winning more titles he's the only one capable of stopping them

3.) 19 Aug 2017 21:07:18
Walter and no money. i'd love to see that

4.) 19 Aug 2017 21:11:37
Walters too old now forget it

5.) 19 Aug 2017 21:12:23
There is money

6.) 19 Aug 2017 21:39:28
I agree wattie all day long

7.) 19 Aug 2017 21:42:45
The manager is clueless and the appointment was baffling. Couldn't beat a woeful Hearts team who were as bad as I can remember. Already well behind in the league and some of the signings are strange to say the least. Dalico disappeared already, Pena bought for big money deemed not fit to play and Herrera who looks like he pulls a caravan with him when he tries to run. Also Miller playing wide this week and centre midfield last week? Honestly it's like watching an episode of faulty towers watching the manager and his tactics

8.) 19 Aug 2017 23:32:32
I'm not saying I don't want Walter! Of course I do but there's no way he'd ruin his legendary status by taking over this dross

9.) 20 Aug 2017 01:47:30
Walter is a legend but folk need to stop the attitude of let's run back to Walter when something goes wrong. Let the man enjoy his retirement



15 Aug 2017 11:12:12
Hi fellow bears a heard a song at ibrox on Saturday from the broamloan it was quality a think of all of ibrox sung it think it would be brilliant and some atmosphere the song goes like this

Every Saturday we follow
We cheer the boys in blue
The most successful team in football
We're Scotland's gallant few

Though times have been hard
We've followed near and far
You will always hear us roaring
From the stands and ibrox park

Ohh ohh ohh ohh

Ed please post cause I believe this song at ibrox would be good if the whole of our fans where to sing this cause a lot of the fans don't no the words thanks

1.) 15 Aug 2017 11:23:28
Stay aff the glue sir.

2.) 15 Aug 2017 11:33:56
Ibrox just now is a morgue when we are getting beat all the time and the old school need to get way the new school times are changing we can't be stuck singing old fashioned songs that get us into rubbish constantly



14 Aug 2017 18:13:35
Hi fellow bears and ed can we get a wee poll going please just to see who fellow berad would prefer to start game in the goalkeepers position

Alnwick or foderingham ed please post a would be ever so grateful

{Ed033's Note -

Rangers Keeper Poll

1.) 14 Aug 2017 22:47:56
Why is the poll so high against foderingham? The guy has saved us on numerous occasions and are we willing to get alnwick in and if he makes mistakes it will cost us big time! ( big call)

2.) 15 Aug 2017 07:57:41
Alnwick should be given the chance in my opinion, a good run of games to see if he is the viable option. He was pretty highly rated down south while at Newcastle.
Fod is a good shotstopper agreed but is not commanding whatsoever. I think a gk should be coming and claiming crosses into the box 9 times out of 10, Fod just doesn't do that at all, very reluctant.

I do agree he has made some fantastic saves that won us games like the save near the end against motherwell.

Alnwick might not be the answer either but should b given a chance to prove himself



22 May 2017 11:35:16
Just a post to say this what I think might happen.

Players out:

McKay, Waghorn, Hill, Senderos, Forrester, Windlass, Kiernan, Toral, Tavernier , Halliday, Moh, Dodoo loan.

Players in:

Sumali, Alves, Abella, Izquierdos, Weiss, Lafferty, Naismith, Whittaker, Danny, Patterson, Jack, Paulinho, Veloso, Henaghan, Moult,

1.) 22 May 2017 11:51:30
I'd say players out is correct apart from I think tav will stay and there for we won't sign Whittiker and Paterson tav will be cover for abella and I really can't see us signing lafferty tbh

2.) 22 May 2017 11:51:40
15 players in, 7 of them defenders, 3 in the one position. ok

3.) 22 May 2017 11:53:28
And I don't think we will sign henigen as with alves izquirdos and sumalia and Danny Wilson we have 4 centre backs

4.) 22 May 2017 11:57:31
We will be lucky to get 3 of them players mentioned with our budget. Deluded

5.) 22 May 2017 16:11:46
Chic, can you inform us of the budget please?

6.) 23 May 2017 12:48:43
sorry southside ger but that's the worst post I've seen on here in a long time and that's saying something.

where are we getting the money for 15 players and why soo many defenders.

i think u have just seen all these players we have been linked with and made up a list of them and made a list up of who is linked to be leaving.

sorry to tell u this much buisness will not be done and half the players on your outgoing list have 2 years left on their contracts.

7.) 23 May 2017 12:51:37
There's money there open your eyes season ticket money funding all moves



30 Apr 2017 14:00:24
I have not posted on here for a wee while I was leaving it for a while but after the last few weeks things have been worse than it has been for a long time

1. Pedro will be gone by xmas
2. They players need to go except miller
3. King either needs to put up or go
4. 2nd place along way off for a few years
5. Never seen the place empty like that after 60mins
6. 4-3-3 needs to be axed
7. Major investment needed
8. New owner required
9. New squad needed
10. Going for 55 long way away

Pains me to post this but that mob are streets ahead of us honestly we need to voice our opinions to
The board through peaceful protests or we will be a laughing stock for years to come and they will win 10 plus if we don't do anything.

1.) 30 Apr 2017 14:14:43
Can you also give your solutions to your suggestions?

2.) 30 Apr 2017 14:29:30
So get rid of the manager, players and chairman?

Pedro doesn't even get the chance to bring in some of his own players? Players that can play on the position that we need?

Get rid of King and bring in who? Green? Whyte? Ashley?

Play what formation. Warburton only bought players for that formation (see point one about giving Pedro more time)

Remember that under Delia, Celtic were rubbish. Rodgers brought on 2/ 3 players and there has been a huge change.

3.) 30 Apr 2017 14:33:02
We have to give the manager time, what's the use of spending 600k to get him out early then spending a million axing him, we need to give him time
The playing squad are a shambles at least he came out and said they aren't good enough which they aren't celtic played some fantastic football and brenda has put confidence through there whole team, the young players are good tierney could be class as i think he's a fantastic talent.
We have to let the manager do his thing and give him time

4.) 30 Apr 2017 14:34:07
I have to say, after being at the game yesterday, yes Celtic are streets ahead of us. It was stupid to think that after promotion that it was going to be easy to challenge. Yes we deserve better, players to at least play with pride and hunger, this is lacking but I blame Warburton as all those players were his, hence why he jumped ship, he knew he got it wrong. Give Pedro a chance let him bring in some players we need 6 very good first team starters and mixed with the players who have ability but are being dragged down by the mediocracy that they are playing with. Lionel Messi would look poor in that team and they proved that yesterday and last season, as with some quality additions and time with a new coach they are looking like a real team under Rodgers but were terrible under Delia. We need to give Pedro the time and backing to build his team and yes to do this the Board needs to STUMP up the money to invest in the Squad as it is piss poor and we need players that have been in the habit of winning games in their career that will then bread a winning mentality cross the whole squad. RANT OVER

5.) 30 Apr 2017 14:57:23
We are all hurting. Clearly as a club we are streets behind celtic and need serious investment or the best we can hope for is a strong 2nd for years to come but we need to be patient.

There are off-field issues that need to be resolved before we can grow. The manager has come in to an impossible position with the squad he has and the huge games so soon. Judge him by xmas. Hopefuly by then merchandise situation and court cases should be sorted and money can come in.

6.) 30 Apr 2017 15:00:09
The comment that the Board need to stump up the money to invest makes me laugh. Is this not the same pressure put on Murray before Rangers went bust? The Board need to run the club out of the money it generates. They don't need to do anything else. Why would Parks and co directors just flush millions away yet again so you can pay a few hundred quid a year for a season ticket. Rangers supporters need to get real. Club managed worse than a corner shop for years. Rangers may not grt a league winning team back for 5 years or even more but thete is no doubt that it will eventually happen privided the team are still in existance which they won't be if they continue to borrow money they can't pay back.

7.) 30 Apr 2017 16:50:05
We need a Board with a strategy for the future. The current lot don't even have a strategy for the present! Our Chairman hides away in South Africa and generally only materialises when he wants something, like a boycott or Season Ticket renewals.

We heard all the sound bytes from him about renegotiating the deal with Sports Direct etc., but nothing has materialised and no update although inevitably more bullshit will follow come May and season ticket renewals.

What is the answer, at least replace King and with someone that has the credibility to renegotiate the Sports Direct deal. It is not helping anyone and the time is right for renegotiation with us back in Europe. We need funding for quality players. Quality players will not guarantee a run in Europe but it will give us more chance of reaching the final stages. That in turn gets theSponsors name known across Europe, (something that will never happen with Newcastle) . Perhaps contact should be made with the ex-owner of Crystal Palace or with Souness and Kennedy. Something needs to be done since we will not make progress under King.

8.) 30 Apr 2017 17:28:09
Need someone to buy us or we buy our club and Pedro is inept and it's has been proved against that mobb wrong appointment by the so called rangers men on the board Murty should have been in charge until now and de boer
Should have been installed as the new manger for the season coming

9.) 30 Apr 2017 20:04:34
Southsideger, a simple question for you mate! If rangers were to get rid of pedro caixinha before Christmas, who would you want the rangers board to go for, as the next manager? I say we HAVE to give pedro caixinha TIME to build his own team and then and only then, is the correct time to judge the guy! Our club has to at the very least, give caixinha a full season at it, with his own players!

Big changes coming in the club new board member maybe just guessing but could the new board member be John Fleming from oiltech?

The deal was struck when Newcastle were in the premiership yes, but we were in the lower leagues and not top flight in Scotland. now rangers are in the top flight and also Newcastle's promotion back to the EPL, it is a conflict of interest.

you can't have anything to do with two top flight clubs in the U.K. Meaning sports direct have to terminate our contract or Newcastle's and Mike Ashley will not terminate Newcastle contract so it only makes sense to terminate ours so we could be well rid of sports direct, about time too.

Also my sources tell me that rangers have major investment coming from the Middle East can't say more than that at the moment unfortunately it's a work in progress at the moment hopefully it will happen
