Some rumours kicking about around a consortium to buy into us interesting if true, supposedly a whisky entrepreneur along with wait for it sdm and some others.
Ill not hold my breath on it but thought i'd pass along the rumour line lol.


1.) 01 May 2017 21:03:54
Yup, heard this one too. Apparently it has coincided with his re-entry in the Rich List, or something.

2.) 01 May 2017 21:12:12
Well there could be a bit of merit in that rumour. Jack Daniels purchased a Scottish distillery up near elgin last year. The owner cashed in big time. Multiple millions and I know this because my relation was the accountant for them. The owner was a blue nose. I will ask my relation to see if he known anything

3.) 01 May 2017 21:34:18
The Distillery was Ben Riach sold to Jack D for £285million the owner Billy Walker is a blue nose. I'll try and find out if any truth in the rumours

4.) 01 May 2017 21:53:57
sdm? who is that?

the rumour I hear on Friday was totally it wasn't the board that wanted pedro but the Chinese, consortium apparently. more than just likely scheidt,

5.) 01 May 2017 23:02:36
How do you know Billy walker is a blue nose? I did see that his two business partners are both South African business men not saying just for that reason them and king will know each other but could go along with king talking to potential buyers/ investors who knows.

6.) 02 May 2017 00:55:59
How good would it feel for us to get an investor! The last few years have been hard going, some decent news on cash being injected would be as good as lifting silverware for me at this present time! Fingers crossed

7.) 02 May 2017 07:02:11
What happened to Red Bull? Until Mike Ashley is out the way nobody will invest.

8.) 02 May 2017 09:27:36
Deanobear, Scotsman article stating Billy Walker is a lifelong GERS fan. 3 or 4 paragraphs above the header that says "30 second cv" near the end of the article.


9.) 02 May 2017 15:46:32
I was told that this guy Walker is related to our ex-goalie Nicki Walker of the shortbread family but have no idea if any of the family are bluenoses

10.) 02 May 2017 15:46:47
SDM = Sir David Murray no other

11.) 02 May 2017 15:47:43
If things go the way people are saying then i think there could be little investment. i think if true murray and co will buy ashley out 1st if anything rangers need ride of ashley and merchandise deal before we can really have some good cash to buy better quality.

12.) 02 May 2017 15:52:10
red bull have still been touted for our next sponsors as far as I've heard with under armour as the kit manufacturers but that's just what I've heard off of the sites i am on

13.) 02 May 2017 17:48:47
Sorry first time post, not sure how this works re posts being approved by admin, but just wanted to state I know Billy Walker personally and he is a definite Bluenose, and s shrewd business man who could make a serious difference if involved in a consortium @ Ibrox.

He's also a local Lanarkshire man, and would provide hands on support in the boardroom if he chose to be involved.

14.) 02 May 2017 19:30:38
We have to get real here guys. Nobody is going to come in and buy Rangers. Not red bull not any chinese guys cause they just wouldn't get a decent return on their money. We would have to qualify for the last 16 in the champions league to do that and celtic can't do it. Lawlell is in a catch 22 situation. He has to spend really big to get into the last 16 but why should he just to win the scottish league. I thinkk our only hope next season is second in the league and maybe a cup and watch the tic not qualifying for europe. Sorry for being so downbeat but we are where we are.

15.) 03 May 2017 22:17:46
And no sir Walter i am legend smith to bail us out again when ped screws up i see another Paul le goon situation who ever he buys it's got to be better then the crap we have I don't no why they never offered kenny miller the job seems too do everything else



06 May 2016 23:03:52
So supposedly rossiter ( spelling as I've had a few ) is done 250k development fee, ill take that just shows the kind of knowledge warbs has in place, good player if we keep him injury free, right away for another beer now.


1.) 07 May 2016 08:47:55
Mcparlard is the man who brought rossiter to warbs attention mate.



25 Jan 2016 08:00:15
So third bid going in today supposedly for moh, personally i'd take him at ibrox no worries, so i'm hoping for a half decent bid that suits both parties source bbc sport.


1.) 25 Jan 2016 08:51:12
Hope so, this needs to be resolved one way or another.

2.) 25 Jan 2016 08:53:54
I recon 400k would be a decent bid for him with add-ons. He would do a good job in MW setup. Hopefully a loan player cums in as well. Then in the summer once we are up we can bring in 3-4 more players.

3.) 25 Jan 2016 09:04:28
Well i did tell yous this tht michael o'halloran was the man we need did yous see him against celtic with his speed imagin what he'l do for us when we play celtic next season did tell yous he was very good and ditect if we don't get um thn big mistake just like allan gers fans could u just imagine if allan in our mid n o'halloran up tops wut team.

4.) 25 Jan 2016 10:00:37
Barry why do you want to imaging a celtic player in our team lol. Think you need to let that go now mate.

5.) 25 Jan 2016 10:00:37

6.) 25 Jan 2016 10:26:54
I'm sure another bid is going to go in today, however I'll bet that Celtic put in a slightly increased offer on the back of the weekends performance and turn his head. I feel Smellic are just waiting for us to show our final hand in regard to this deal. Seems to be their business model these days and keeps the heat off of Celtic board with these types of Rangers beating PR tactics. I hope I'm wrong.

7.) 25 Jan 2016 11:38:49
O'halloran aye. allan naw. ** * **.

The naismith rumour really gathering pace now, personally i'd take him, what a difference he'd make up front, we just have to shake hands and forget what happened but the rumour is definately that he's coming.


1.) 03 May 2017 08:28:03
You might want to forgive someone who not only desertered the club but then had the audacity to hold a press conference and declare the club dead but I can't. Don't want that kind of person anywhere near the club and as for the so called rumour gathering pace he is still under contract and I'm sure they would want a sum we can't afford to pay

2.) 03 May 2017 08:48:28
If naismith comes back there's going to be people split obviously by the history we have with him with his injuries then stabbing the club in the back but I'd forgive him at the time I was raging about everything that was going on but when you look now the guys that left they have short careers and family's to feed but we take naisy back he bangs in the only goal of the game in a old firm it won't be long till the haters start loving again lol

3.) 03 May 2017 09:26:36
Sorry I can just just about forgive him desert club but holding a press conference and spout all sevco pish I can't

4.) 03 May 2017 09:46:55
I'll never forgive any of them that left that way but apart from that don't think he would make a great difference.

5.) 03 May 2017 09:47:34

Why do people keep coming up with the phrase he has a family to feed? Steven Davis had a family to feed yet he made sure the club got a fee. Lee Wallace had a family to feed but he stayed. You make it sound like Rangers were paying these players minimum wage. All he needed to do was ensure Rangers got some sort of fee and no one would have thought anything less of him moving. If he had agreed to leave for £500k he would have still got his move. Instead he walked out and then pronounced the club dead at a press conference. The same club who had helped him get over 2 serious injuries

6.) 03 May 2017 10:02:08

What are you on about, making sure the club got a fee?, Who would this 'fee' have benefitted exactly,? the spivs who were plundering the last dregs from the club.
Its time people moved on from all this 'i'll never forgive ' sanctimonious bull .
get over it,
can he improve the team? if so, its a no brainer, we're not really in any position to be unforgiving . Move on people. It's that simple !

7.) 03 May 2017 10:41:35
I don't agree with the way that these guys left either. I believe that they were i'll advised to take the press conference in relation to the club. But take a step back and look at the situation, remove your personal feeling that as a fan you'd play for Rangers for nothing due to love for the club.

These guys were relatively young footballers whom took a pay cut of up to 75% to enable the club to see out it's fixtures until the end of 2012 season so that in itself is a sacrifice. As a young Scottish international player, why would you want to play your football in the doldrums of Scottish football, picking up a far smaller wage than what you could get elsewhere in a relatively short career. The came to Rangers to be winners. The club let them down by financial mismanagement in the background. Two sides to everything.

Yes, self interest made them opt not to sign for the new holding company, making them more attractive to clubs to sign on bosman deals. That was wrong but they must have been advised by their agents to do so. The agents and players would be picking up hefty signing on fees due to this. We all know agents are greedy bassas.

Look at McCoist, he made sure that his big wage was honoured to play patsy and get the fans to buy into Green's charade. I blame these people for the financial bleeding rather than these players, all the while ill advised, who chose to leave.

I would take Naismith and Lafferty back. No one is saying we nee to make it comfortable for them but if their men - they should be able to take a bit of flack. In comparison to Waghorn and Garner it's like day and night for ability. If anything we need a continuity of what Rangers are about - the winning mentality that's lacking at the moment. Kenny Miller and Lee Wallace are the only current players who carry that batton but the rest of the squad aren't listening. Its of vital importance that we need this under Caixinha.

8.) 03 May 2017 11:00:36
Brian G
Other guys like the Americans transferred there contracts these players weren't getting paid there wage at the time Lee Wallace an Lee mccculloch wher the only two who took a pay cut at the time and these guys have short careers. Hence why I said they have family's to feed . They play till there 33/ 35 then retire some are lucky enough to coach or go in to punditry but not all of them. You make as much as you can cause you don't know what's round the corner. And Kenny Miller played for celtic the worst thing a rangers player could do but 99.99% have forgiven him after beating celtic and I'm just saying that would probably be the case if naisy was as successful on his return if he comes.

9.) 03 May 2017 12:39:57
Naismiths on £50grand per week no way he'll come back .
Lafferty is a possibility.

10.) 03 May 2017 14:19:55

At the time no one knew what was going on and who was going to hoover up the cash. It's easy to say now about who it went to but I defy any fan or player to say they knew where the money was going. At the time it could have been the difference between the club going under and surviving. Naismith and others chose to turn their backs on the club and supporters who had shown them great loyalty

11.) 04 May 2017 18:19:22
lafferty is mince and nowhere near good enough in my opinion



24 Mar 2017 17:52:47
So dk says there will be agreement in place by summer with ashley and sd, the rumours are that sd could end up shirt sponsers call it mad but it could end up quite profitable, ashley is a horrible person we know that but is loaded and he'll throw everything at the legal cases surely it could be an amicable agreement until the shirt deal runs out somehow, anyway back to take my meds for daydreaming and looking at twitter lol.


1.) 24 Mar 2017 22:20:01
Come on Gareth and co.

2.) 24 Mar 2017 22:43:47
Let's be realistic, King and Ashley will never reach any agreement. Remember Ashley wanted King jailed. This isn't about money any more. King is spinning a yarn as per usual.

3.) 25 Mar 2017 09:13:17
Gor, why the intense dislike of DK (David King just to be clear! )?

You rubbish most things about the way he is running the club, disbelieve any statement and yet he is doing exactly what he said he would.

I'm sure that your GP (doctor) will prescribe happy pills if you describe your symptoms!

4.) 25 Mar 2017 09:22:27
He thought Ashley would be our saviour.

5.) 25 Mar 2017 10:49:32
He was saying the same on LSE when we were still trading on AIM.

6.) 25 Mar 2017 13:18:23
BR65, take off your blue tinted glasses. Don't need happy pills my friend just a nice wee Balvenie Double Wood! If you believe in King the career criminal then that's your choice. King who says he'll spend 30 million when in fact he personally has spent 3.8 million. King who uses our money from club 1872 to pay his legal fees. King who has fallen out with the rest of the board. It's only my opinion as its a friendly banter site but it's time for King to stand down.

7.) 25 Mar 2017 13:51:30
Who replaces king then? Ashley? Lambias? Easdales?

8.) 25 Mar 2017 16:23:08
If dave king was to be replaced as rangers chairman, then i would like brian kennedy or douglas park to be the new rangers chairman! Another very credible candidate would be current director john gilligan!

9.) 25 Mar 2017 16:31:18
Sorry. None of the above.

10.) 25 Mar 2017 18:43:15
I disagree with Cee regarding Kings replacement. Supercoopereleven's suggestions are a lot better.



02 Mar 2017 07:41:28
Has anybody got an idea what kind of experience this Portuguese guy has, his name keeps popping up and with only 4 months on his contract won't cost a penny, does he know the scottish/ english game or are we chancing it and that's a dof is getting brought in, hey if he knows mourinho we might get a couple of half decent loans out of it lol
P. s though to hyndman what a player cracking prospect and if any chance came up to keep him ill be all over it.


1.) 02 Mar 2017 08:10:18
never heard of him. he has Weiss at his current club so hopefully he brings him along

2.) 02 Mar 2017 08:47:05
Doesn't stay long at previous clubs with average stay of 1.47 years been assistant manager of sporting and and a few others

3.) 02 Mar 2017 09:33:37
Sorry to hear of the death of tommy gemmell condolences to his family.

4.) 02 Mar 2017 09:34:27
Seems to have been good in South America, according to Wiki, winning 3 major trophies and reaching the final of their equivalent of our champions league. Looks like he was decent in Portugal before that too.

5.) 02 Mar 2017 09:42:00
Just checked him out he was a star player at his school in Portugal, he scored 23 goals in 6 games at St Theresa de Domenica in lisbon . so a relly positive guy

6.) 02 Mar 2017 10:03:40
Apparently we were after him before we signed Warburton, He plays a 4-2-3-1 formation (unsure if this is the formation he is using out in Qatar)

7.) 02 Mar 2017 11:22:41
He done his badges at SFA course in largs, he was assistant manager at Sporting lisbon and panithanikos when we played them in 2008, was manager in mexico with santos laguna and currently managing in qatar.

8.) 02 Mar 2017 10:42:18
Dont like the sound of it at all, he doesn't have experience managing big teams although he has been assistant at a few, he's managing a Qatari team just now for god sake! Unless its Frank De Boer I don't think we should be going for foreign managers, I fear another Paul Le Guen incident.

9.) 02 Mar 2017 13:00:46
Trueblue, I reckon the Qatari teams could come over here and wipe the floor with most of the teams in our league.

10.) 02 Mar 2017 14:57:28
quatari team would wipe the floor with us and have vast amounts of money to spend.

but they won't be used as stepping stone to the epl as we can be so that's the attraction for him and i think he will maybe stay here 3 seasons tops before he leaves but with a director of football in place it won't be as big a deal replacing head coach as it would replacing a whole management team



11 Feb 2017 22:18:38
Michael oneil is my pick, i can see the attraction with de boer but i think we need somebody that can push average sides which we are at the minute, what's happened again is a mess but if what the board say is true then see ya, i think that people forget the board is full of successful business minds and you don't get rich being mugged off still think something stinks but we'll see, i'd love barry back but not as top boy yet.
P. s little bear was born by c section last night 6 lb 3 knackered when i heard about warbs thought i was dreaming lol.


1.) 11 Feb 2017 23:08:06

Congrats Stmonkey. Hope the wee guy behaves himself and let's you all get some sleep. Enjoy the magic!



30 Dec 2016 21:00:32
Right guys here goes my bets for tom
Waggy to score and gers to win 1_0 2_0 or 2_1 special 12_1, garner to score anytime and bears to win 8_1, gers score penalty 10_1 and them missing one at 18_1, here's hoping bears we can do this ( hopefully)

Falkirk have a fantastic youth and scouting network, they really seem to get gems all the time, it keeps them afloat by selling them, i like the player aswell suprised sibbald is still there and thought we should of taking vaulks last season, well worth keeping an eye on. I now live in falkirk and the work they put in to include schools and youth teams male and female is incredible also using the sport science at stirling uni which is highly thought of throughout the uk

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
