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.

Do all bears agree on the 54th minute of every game we should put all our lights on on mobiles on to remind all the haters that we have 54 league titles and still the worlds most successful club how good would ibrox look with everyone's lights on at the 54th minute

1.) 18 Jan 2017 18:07:56
and copy the green mob from across the city? . nah I'd rather we had our own ideas

2.) 18 Jan 2017 18:17:16
Great idea what a wonderful new idea, oh wait a minute we do it on the 67th min for genuine Euro cup win.
Still its good to know u want to follow us again.

3.) 18 Jan 2017 18:25:53
If anyone at ibrox even attempts to do this at ibrox ill never be back that's what the manky mob do why would we want to copy they tramps come on bears we can think of our own ways to honour our history

4.) 18 Jan 2017 19:21:47
Manky mob, tramps, that's very original😅😅

5.) 18 Jan 2017 19:28:44

Did your support not copy a song from a very famous team from Liverpool or copy another supports backwards celebration?

6.) 18 Jan 2017 19:35:44
Oh dear, do football fans really do such things? How pathetic- just my opinion.

7.) 18 Jan 2017 22:10:03
Stewie, they copied both the Everton and Liverpool songs. They are renowned for stealing from other teams!

8.) 19 Jan 2017 07:51:31
Fans using their phones like that in stadiums has been around for ages. its hardly some genius idea conceived by a Celtic fan lol.



18 Jan 2017 00:06:10
Rangers should go for
Nigel de Jong as our defensive midfielder and sort that problem hard solid player he would be good he's only 30

1.) 18 Jan 2017 00:59:05
32 he is. he's still it galatasaray a think

2.) 18 Jan 2017 00:59:05
32 he is. he's still it galatasaray a think

3.) 18 Jan 2017 07:51:09
Too old n too dear, would rather we had gave crooks a run of 5 or 6 games probably never see what the boy could have Brought to team now

4.) 18 Jan 2017 08:58:56
Would crooks be any better? he isn't good in the air, he is also meant to be a bit of a pussy. We need a hard hitting type of Holding mid, crooks could likely replace holt though?

5.) 18 Jan 2017 10:13:06
Someone like DeJong for the rest of this season while young Rossiter gets fit would be a good move. We definitely need better than we currently have!



11 Jan 2017 10:59:33
John terry on loan anyone think him and big Clint hill would be good the gether

1.) 11 Jan 2017 11:26:50
so john terry and martesacker is our defence the rest of th season lmfao.

we need to get real guys we can't afford to pay these guys bonuses never mind wages lmfao.

but at the end of the day we do need a new defence our is terrible too slow and only one who is only half as good as some make out (hill)

for me we need faster and stronger defenders than what we have, Wilson looks like half the player he could have been Kiernan never a footballer and hill is too old too slow but yet is best of the bunch.

I know where w are financially but surely there must be better out ther for us

2.) 11 Jan 2017 13:10:43
Wilson was a quality youngster when he played alongside Weir so why has he gone backwards and can Weir resurrect the player that we had previously. Perhaps if he was playing alongside a more polished quality professional he would regain the qualities that he showed earlier in his career.

Unfortunately Mr Warburton appears to prefer Kiernan although personally I would prefer that we sold him and used the money elsewhere.

The above said I suspect that you know my view that while we have Halliday as our holding midfield player providing cover for the defence we will always have problems and for me the priority, as it always has been since Warburton's arrival should be to find a quality player for this position.

3.) 11 Jan 2017 13:35:14
I and most people on here agree we need a new defence but the guy that matters most doesn't seem to think so which gives me the fear

4.) 11 Jan 2017 13:37:35
I think young Rossiter could be the answer Tom but the big question is, wil he ever be fit?

5.) 11 Jan 2017 14:15:50
Clint Hill has been our best summer recruit.

We have 4 CB. Unless we get one on a pre-contract or Senderos departs. The 4 we have just now will be the 4 that finishes the season.

The defence isn't as big an issue as scoring goals anyway. We need a centre forward ASAP.

6.) 11 Jan 2017 17:22:13
Blue die, I agree 100% on young Rossiter. I was delighted when we signed him having seen him playing for Liverpool but then when I spoke to some Liverpool supporting friends the concern regarding his fitness was highlighted and their was a number of concerns that having played so many games for England Under 21s during the summer, he would need some serious rest time if he was to stay injury free. The rest is history.

If we can get him fit and keep him fit I have no doubt that he will be a different class to Halliday or indeed any other midfield player in Scotland in the same position.

For that reason I would be happy for Warburton to 'nurse' him back slowly so we have him for next season. In the interim we need someone, even if on loan, to replace Halliday.

7.) 11 Jan 2017 19:54:33
Crooks is a DM and he's fit as he's been on the bench but Warbs obvisouly doesn't think he's better than Halliday which is a worry. the thing i don't get is that warbs says he"ll only sign players that improve the team yet after making 12 signings in the summer he still seems to play the bulk of last seasons team



31 Dec 2016 15:29:23
Warburton = clueless don't come back after new year pack your bags and take tavernier and harry forrester way you and kiernan.

1.) 31 Dec 2016 15:51:41
Holt and halliday to that list the undroppables! Offer nothing and guaranteed 90 mins every week.

2.) 31 Dec 2016 16:01:00
I think you're clueless mate, there's positives to be taken from this. We were on our Arse 2 years ago, we're building towards something.

3.) 31 Dec 2016 16:01:56
I find it strange that wilson doesn't get the same amount of stick as kiernan. He's a better footballer but makes as many mistakes as kiernan. As for tavernier I agree hodson has to play instead of him.

4.) 31 Dec 2016 16:04:06
What were you expecting this season southsideger? I was quite pleased with the way we set up today think warburtons tactics were well suited to the game, short of a few players but we are definitely improving.

5.) 31 Dec 2016 16:28:40
Got to say i'm not a kiernan fan but the amount of times he needs to abandon his posistion because Tavs halfway up the park is criminal. i lost count how many times sinclair got 1v1 with kiernan.

6.) 31 Dec 2016 17:03:53
I thought that our back three played well today as did Fotheringham and I thought that McKay was the best player on the Park. Tavernier let us down badly with his defending and his failure to track his man and I have to ask what Weir does in terms of defensive coaching.
In midfield I thought that Windass played well and will only continue to improve but Halliday and Holt are out of their depth and Halliday is like a man down. Up from Miller played well and I reckon we would have got a result had Garner not been injured since he would have unsettled their back four. Waghorn, when he came on did not cause them problems.
We need to spend money on some quality acquisitions for midfield and ideally we could do with a good right back.
If we could get money for them then I would sell both Tavernier and Waghorn and use the money to bring in a top quality holding midfield player. That by far is our weakest position!

7.) 31 Dec 2016 18:00:11
We have a good rb, his name is hodson. He played against aberdeen and hearts. 1 goal and 1 mom I believe. Our defence looked much better when he played. So guess what the magic twot did? Dropped him.



31 Dec 2016 15:09:39
We need a goal scorer and a new right back and new midfield general and I almost forgot to
Mention a new manager one who has the balls to drop pampered superstars and knows how to change tactics

Warburton = clueless.

1.) 31 Dec 2016 15:18:58
@southsideger - didn't know we had any superstars?

2.) 31 Dec 2016 15:23:20
We have no superstars. Just bang average dross who Warburton seems unable or unwilling to overlook.

3.) 31 Dec 2016 15:28:09
The way the think they can be greedy i. e. Forrester he thinks he's a superstar so does the undroppable tavernier #pamperedsuperstars.

4.) 31 Dec 2016 16:56:20
Need dropped, Halliday, holt, keirnan, tavernier, Wilson, just not good enough.
