One piece of business which could be key to us challenging next season is signing kent on a permanent. Heard rumours of £2m but i'd have thought it would be atleast double that. Chances are morelos will be away in the summer, if we get £10m for him and can reinvest that into the squad i'd be looking for Kent on a permanent deal, a replacement for morelos and 2 centre halves (one on permanent and one a loan similar to worrall) to replace Worrall and Macaulay. A fully fit Murphy coming back gives us options in wide areas also. Also need to get rid of a lot of the deadwood too.


1.) 13 Jan 2019 01:39:09

Where do you get £10m for Morelos from?

It it not going to happen. If we rejected 11 million last January from Beef Chow Mein Club China when he was 21, then why would we take 10 million now?

You are taking the China and on the verge of being a Jungle.

2.) 13 Jan 2019 10:35:57
We are challenging this year, just saying.



09 Aug 2018 14:47:47
Looks like declan john will be away for a minimal fee.

I liked the lad but for me a nominal fee being maybe 500k is an absolute joke. 23 year old welsh international with EPL experience and 2 years left on his contract. We need to stop selling ourselves short. Celtic have just got £8m for Armstrong who wasn't first pick, had one more international cap than john whilst being 3 years older and had no EPL experience.


1.) 09 Aug 2018 15:13:15
Stuart Swansea site saying fee .1. 2 million where are you seeing 500k.

{Ed039's Note - £1m plus add ins)

2.) 09 Aug 2018 15:18:19
Hearing he cost £500k and went for £1.2m plus add ons and sell on clause, still too little imo but not exactly pocket change.

3.) 09 Aug 2018 15:18:51
Mate i hate celtic but the reason there players are worth more as they have been performing in champions league and winning trophies non stop. Our players just look ok. While winning nothing. It boosts there value am afraid.

4.) 09 Aug 2018 15:29:23
There’s a good few players i'd like to see leave before John and Windass and especially not for the small fees quoted. That said in Gerrard we trust. Can’t see Tav being aloud to leave now if John is going and with Hodson away also.

5.) 09 Aug 2018 15:42:57
Celtic get pumped by 6 and 7 in the CL i'd hardly say that's competing. I seen on twitter £500k. i'd be looking for Atleast £1.5m and that's only because he's technically third choice.

6.) 09 Aug 2018 15:48:36
Spot on paul86, sticks in throat tho👍.

7.) 09 Aug 2018 16:10:16
I totally disagree lads. E. g maribor were in the champions league last season so does that mean all their players are worth £6/ 7m? Panama qualified for the world cup but doesn't mean their players are all worth a fortune. there's a massive difference between qualifying and competing in these massive tournaments and we all know getting pumped by 6 and 7 in the champions league isn't competing. Celtic are just much better at bigging up their players. Look at boyata. This time 4 or 5 months they wanted him gone as he was awful. 2 good games against panama and tunisia at the world cup and they're supposedly rejecting huge bids for him whilst we're letting our players for paltry sums.

8.) 09 Aug 2018 16:12:34
Stuart AC aye there getting pumped 6 in champs league but they are then giving us 5. Hopefully we can really do well and put the pressure on this season. Think we will sell katic and barisic in few years for healthy money.

9.) 09 Aug 2018 16:20:33
Getting more money than you paid for someone that’s not wanted or needed by the manager and also getting them off the wages is a bonus, yes we all want large fees but not always possible.

10.) 09 Aug 2018 17:50:05
John went for 800k.

11.) 09 Aug 2018 18:48:32
And Celtic pump Rangers by 4 or 5 StuartAC.



05 Aug 2018 23:22:41
Is this Barisic link just paper talk? can't understand for a second why we would need another left back. We've currently got English, scottish, welsh international left backs add barisic and that would be a Croatian international. Not easy to keep all 4 happy. For me i'd move Flanagan to right back his natural position and play john at left back.


1.) 06 Aug 2018 02:23:16
Barisic can play all across the back four apparently.

Tbh, Tavernier, Flanagan and John are all fullbacks so I get what you’re saying (Wallace is injury prone and unlikely to play for us again with the quality we have infront of him now - IMO) .

But I feel the opportunity to sign this guy for 2m is not one we should pass up. He looks sheer quality and fits the mould of Gerrards team (High work rate, versatile and physical) .

2.) 06 Aug 2018 07:07:55
We need a striker ASAP. Rumoured to be spending over £2m for the Croat LB but we are messing about over a few £100k for Lafferty. When Morelos went off we had no genuine goal threat. That needs addressed more than any over position.

3.) 06 Aug 2018 08:37:29
We had no goal threat because we were a man down! And actually had more shots and chances than they did with 11 even if we had another striker he wouldn’t have been on cause we were down to 10 so your points completely invalid.

4.) 06 Aug 2018 09:33:15
Happy for this lad to be brought in but I thought Flanagan was very good yesterday and you could see he was coping abuse for 90 minutes.

5.) 06 Aug 2018 09:39:08
Agree there are other areas we could be strengthening before a new LB but Barisic is a no brainer for me. Can operate at Left Back, Left wing and Centre Back. Also has a fantastic delivery from set pieces which currently looks like an important aspect of our team. I like John but I reckon this will see the end for him and LW (if true) . Trust the manager.

6.) 06 Aug 2018 09:56:47
Barasic from what I saw is twice the player Wallace or John are so that's why we'd sign him!
Imo if we did sign Barasic our best XI wouldn't include tav as much as he's a decent player Flanagan at RB is superior. Even for the sheep goal yday I feel he's too slow getting out to close.

7.) 06 Aug 2018 09:58:59
Agree with poisedon
Flanagan coped very well under such abuse

8.) 06 Aug 2018 09:59:28
Agreed and well written Jzer,

9.) 06 Aug 2018 10:04:42
I think this guy looks some player. John is a good player too but this guy different class. Granted I’ve seen him twice. Think we badly need a decent striker. Lafferty would be a good player but I would still want someone else. Morelos isn’t worth the risk anymore imho.

10.) 06 Aug 2018 10:08:08
Flanagan will get this at every ground in scotland so it's good to see he can cope with it.

11.) 06 Aug 2018 10:24:57
Flanihno was superb yesterday.

Not the easiest on the eye going forward but he is a brick wall defensively, it’s a no brainer he will start ahead of John for the majority of the season and especially against Celtic.

12.) 06 Aug 2018 10:53:25
Flanagan looked like he was thriving on the abuse he was getting. He's a quality no nonsense full back. Would love to see him at RB.

13.) 06 Aug 2018 12:21:41
LM1991 if Morelos gets banned for 3 games who do we rely on then?

14.) 06 Aug 2018 12:30:27
Agree laads flanaghan at rb tav on bench or competition for candias.

15.) 06 Aug 2018 14:44:23
JYF, with our current squad, Sadiq gets the nod for me or Windass. Say what you want about the boy but he can finish, again don’t understand how that’ll be relevant to yesterday’s performance.

16.) 06 Aug 2018 15:27:33
Skidney, Tav is the club Captain, he won’t be benched.

Flanagan is our left back.

17.) 06 Aug 2018 16:26:45
Bearmode if he keeps making mistakes he will be benched.

18.) 06 Aug 2018 16:39:15
i rekon we need 2 strikers, not one, a poacher and a big guy who can cause teams problems in the air, we are lacking both.

19.) 06 Aug 2018 18:54:48
I would like to see SG at least try something different with Tav, everyone knows how dodgy he can be at RB but I am also sure a lot of people will agree that going forward he can cause a lot of problems for a lot of teams, his delivery at times is really really good if he didn't have to travel the whole length of the pitch to do it you might see even more out of him without the concern at the back. So what if he plays back 4 of Barisic, Katic, Goldson, Flannigan And push Tav to RM or RW if you like Murphy, Kent or Middleton LW Arfield, Jack and Coulibaly CM'S obviously Morelos or Sadiq up top, I know he isn't just going to drop Candeias but at least try Tav at RM to see if it's worth it, he has said he wants 2 quality players in each position so Candeias would just have to try and prove that he is better and vice versa, just my opinion though.



06 May 2018 13:08:00
Spoke to a mate who knows James Mcarthurs dad, McArthur hasn't signed a new deal at palace as he's homesick, he wants back up the road. Make of that what you will.

I like MaCarthur but my problem is if we sign him and and Arfield and make Murphy's deal permanent then our 4 across the middle are all very late 20s/ early 30s.

Going off topic aswell does anyone agree that Ross McCrorrie is a cracking defensive midfielder in the making NOT a centre half?


1.) 06 May 2018 13:23:42
Stuart, I agree that McCrorrie’s best position is defrnsive midfield

2.) 06 May 2018 14:52:56
I can see McCrorrie is going to flourish under stevie g if he turns out half the player he was it's win win win

3.) 06 May 2018 14:54:49
The word earlier in the week was McArthur himself said that he signed a 4 year deal 2 years ago yet Transfermakt still says he's out of contract in June. Got to assume the player is right so it seems unlikely that he's an option much as I'd like to see it.

4.) 06 May 2018 15:17:10
Didn't McArthur just come out and say there's still 2 years on bust contract? Pretty sure he did

5.) 06 May 2018 23:28:13
Never heard him come out and say that lads but you may well be right. Just passing on what my mate said.



01 Feb 2018 20:29:15
Pretty decent transfer window no doubt about it.

Now we need to push on and I'm sure Mark Allen is already looking at summer signings, what and who do you all think we need?

For me off the top of my head i'd say out:

Rossiter (pending fitness by May)
Morelos (if these bids of £8m are true)

I may have missed one or two but we have a big squad and players off the wage bill. With 9 leaving (my opinion) i'd say we need to bring in 4 or 5 (quality over quantity)

A centre half I have no one in mind?

A right back I have no one in mind?

Central midfield i'd do all we can to bring in Scott arfield who's out of contract this summer, failing that I would bring in James Macarthur who's also out of contract.

Right wing/ midfield I'd bring in cadden from Motherwell as back up and to eventually replace Candeias.

Up front I'd look into will grigg from Wigan, out of the names I've mentioned he would like cost the most.

If morelos is sold we could look at signing the players I mentiomed above along with the current loan signings (Murphy, Cummings, Martin) for less than what we get for morelos. Add a few for pena and potentually Herrera say £1.5m for them both we could hage made more money than we've spent and improved the side along with reducing the wage bill.

Sorry for the long post lads, nightshift and bored haha.


1.) 01 Feb 2018 23:00:36
RB Alan Hutton
CB someone faster than Bates but also young with potential
CM I think were a bit heavy at the moment
WM Chris Cadden for sure
ST Devante Cole being behind Cummings but ahead of Hardie in selection

2.) 02 Feb 2018 01:26:45
Cole has signed for Wigan

3.) 02 Feb 2018 01:28:06
Like us to sign Martin Murphy and Cummings for a start! Cadden would also be good signing imo!

4.) 02 Feb 2018 02:38:43
The problem is who's going to take the guys on your list? we can't afford to pay anymore off.

5.) 02 Feb 2018 08:04:01
Sebrofg I agree it all depends on getting rid of certain players.

Murty4me we are heavy in midfield but if we managed to get pena, halliday, Krancjar and Rossiter of the wage bill it would surely make room for one in there?

6.) 02 Feb 2018 08:44:38
I still think there’s a player in Rossiter. I know most won't agree but if he can sort out his injury’s then I think the wee man would be solid in there.

7.) 02 Feb 2018 09:33:39
Stuart I agree we are heavy in midfield but it is dross ie Pena Kranjcar Halliday I would happily swap they 3 for McTominay Goss and Hyndman if it was affordable and possible what's Zelalem up to these days 😂😂😂

8.) 02 Feb 2018 09:43:59
whats the fascination with will grigg? i think he's pretty useless and we already have the penalty box type striker in cummings. we really need another striker in the mould of morelos for when he leaves in the summer and grigg is most certainly not the guy.

9.) 02 Feb 2018 11:04:46
Rossiter will never be fit

10.) 02 Feb 2018 14:53:24
What about big Hanley solid CB could form a good partnership with Martin and only 26

11.) 02 Feb 2018 16:49:12
Mc Arthur just signed a deal with palace

12.) 02 Feb 2018 16:49:35
Cadden, Cummings and Murphy all in for me!

13.) 02 Feb 2018 20:30:37
tav is ten times better that hutton is now so i'd stick with tav as he has formed a very nice partnership with candias

14.) 02 Feb 2018 20:38:30
rossiter is playing with the under 20's remember the boy is still young and he will heal well because of this.

he had couple of serious injurys but he will be a top player for us as long as we have the patience with him.

put it this way if we get rid of him just now it wouldn't make sense as he has been getting treatment with us and we have stuck by him I think if next season he can get a full season staying fit he would be our most valuable player in English teams eyes.

which in turn will be good for us please stop with the get rid of a player because he has had a hard time of it stuff as this does nothing for the boys confidence

15.) 02 Feb 2018 20:39:35
No thanks, seen milk turn quicker than Hanley!

02 Sep 2018 14:15:35
A wee reality check, yes we have improved and yes we all expected better but a relatively small squad and just off the back of a gruelling 90 minutes in russia with 9 men the players looked leggy first half. Second half we were better but didn't create enough. Two massive games coming up after the break.


1.) 02 Sep 2018 14:33:28
Some perspective we haven't won at the piggery since 2010 with a last minute ugo eghiog overhead kick. We setup to get a goal and then hold on. It didn't work out this time but they threw everything at us and only won 1-0. We will continue to grow and develop as a team.



12 Aug 2018 01:37:15
Does anyone know if the rangers teddy bears club is still going? Used to be a wee thing for kids where you got a birthday card, a wee activity pack and chance to be a mascot amongst other things. Can't see anything on the website.


1.) 12 Aug 2018 09:19:18
how can anyone disagree with stuarts post (numpties)

2.) 12 Aug 2018 09:48:50
I don’t think so Stuart. I actually forgot all about it. They should definitely bring it back if it’s gone!

3.) 12 Aug 2018 09:53:51
Will be the usual 2 who disagree with everything.

4.) 12 Aug 2018 11:32:20
Aye definitely need to bring it back. Wonder why umit was stopped. Was hoping to. Get my two wee boys joined up.



20 Jul 2018 08:44:55
What's the views on Ryan Kent? In my opinion he won't improve us, a mate of mine who is a bristol city fan reckons he's a lower end championship player down south.


1.) 20 Jul 2018 08:55:01
Depends which Ryan Kent shows up, if it's last years Ryan Kent then we are screwed. If it's the Ryan Kent of 2016/ 17 then he might do ok. Overall it's a disappointing signing if it happens.

2.) 20 Jul 2018 10:20:09
Common guys, as you know wingers rely and perform on confidence. Ryan kent is a good winger, who's a little shy on confidence just now! That's not to say he's a bad player or lower end championship player, far from it!
Remember, on klopp's say so, young ryan kent was offered and signed, a new 5 year deal, with liverpool, last summer! Can't be that bad and is obviously held in high esteem,
with the liverpool manager! He's far better than being a bristol city player, i can assure you, to what i've seen anyway and what he's capable of! Give the young winger a chance at rangers, before being negatively judgemental on him!

3.) 20 Jul 2018 10:58:17
I'd rather give Middleton the chance to play and prove himself. Too many loanees isn't good. We need to buy a striker but that's easier said than done. Waghorn being sold for 5 million says it all and relying on the Roma youngster and Morelos to provide the firepower for the season is too great a risk.

4.) 20 Jul 2018 11:22:33
Kfraser yea says it all about the boo boys who chased waggy out the door for a dip in form.

5.) 20 Jul 2018 11:58:25
Good post KFRASER you have said what the majority of our supporters are thinking.
It's still early in the season so we need to give all the players who pull on the shirt a chance.

6.) 20 Jul 2018 12:31:43
The thing is NONE of us have saw enough of him on a regular basis but all our current management have. I will not second guess them. I think he would do very well up here in a team playing with confidence.

7.) 20 Jul 2018 13:34:52
Ryan kent is very highly thought of at liverpool! The clue in all this, is that liverpool tied kent down, to a new 5 year deal, last summer! Says it all really!

8.) 20 Jul 2018 14:44:11
Kent is a very good player whom works hard and has two good feet with pace to burn.

9.) 20 Jul 2018 16:02:34
Maybe he is well thought of but we need experience in those areas not kids! Middleton is our youth. We need strikers of experience.

Time yet, but I’m not a fan of loans for the sake of it. This boy Ejaria looks like another Odowa of Spurs. All flicks and shimmy’s not much else.

I hope I’m wrong.



26 Jan 2018 19:31:38
Why are people upset about Wilson going? In 3 years at us he's played for the last month and that's it, even then that's debatable as he was poor against st Johnstone and killie. His positioning is very questionable also. For me he's a decent squad player but not a starter. Good luck to him in America but he won't be a big loss.


1.) 26 Jan 2018 22:11:23
Excactly he has not done nowhere near enough over the past 3years to worrent a new 3year deal like some people were wanting him to get offered.



05 Jan 2018 23:42:27
Seeing loads of guys complaining at us being linked with rated prospects from smaller teams than us.

I must admit I agree. Why waste our time with these players when guys like Sanchez and ozil are out of contract in the summer and aguero seems to be getting pushed out at man city.

Ozil and ryan jack would be a decent midfield and Sanchez would be brilliant up top with morelos leaving aguero as an impact sub.


1.) 06 Jan 2018 00:53:33
It does seem the club is taking a diffrent route and are looking for younger lads with potenial and sell on value that's fine if there good enough and can make a diffrence straight away to the squad and play in the team.
But bringing in loan players i do not see the point espically if we have no chance signing them like the lad goss.
Overall it seems the strategy at the club has changed and we are looking to cut costs.

2.) 06 Jan 2018 01:12:48
aye sarcy attitude totally justified mate because there's nothing in between the elite players you mentioned and the unproven ones we are linked it. totally bang on to look at league one etc

3.) 06 Jan 2018 10:29:07
You can see clearly the market we operate in at present.

We've a base of experience, your tavs, Wallace, alves, dorrans, Jack, Miller. Some young lads, morelos, mcrorie, John. Some squad players, holt, windass, halliday, ohallaran, candias, wilson.

The transfer market is for exactly what we're doing. Moving on the guys that can't hack it, freeing up resources to bring players in who can.

Murphy seems a good signing, the loan guys some we'll keep, some we'll change again in the summer.

As long as we are continually moving forward it doesn't matter.

All the names unfortunately won't excite us, but if we pick up the odd nougat along the way, all good.

We are obviously prepared to pay the wages for key players.

I wouldn't say tactically outclassed. Both games the teams we played parked the bus, created one chance and got some thing from the game. We know that most if not all teams will come to ibrox and play like that so its not any fancy system its a case of us having to break them down. We done that tonight and went infront, our problem was being sloppy at the back and letting them back into it almost straight away.

Personally i'd rest McGregor. i'd play Flanagan, katic, Worrall, halliday
McCrorrie, coulibaly, Middleton, grezda (if fit), lafferty and hardie up top. Have a wee look at hardie for an hour before he goes back out on loan then give defoe and davis last 20/ 30 to give them a wee run out. i'd go with very similar on Sunday and completely change it at half time with a couple more young lads included. Just my opinion though.

This time last season we won that game 2-1 with dorrans scoring two.

We were poor today, very poor Infact but i have no idea why gerrard made that sub before a set piece which was the last kick of the ball. Baffling decision.

Poor start to a massive week. i'd take 3 draws.

Why do you think we need more than 6 players? People seem to be getting carried away with this celtic team. Their centre halves are brutal, their right backs are brutal, left back is decent, wingers are no better than average and it looks like Sinclair and Roberts will be away. Brown, ntscham and mcgregor are average at best, rogic and the three strikers arw good but there's talk of rogic leaving, dembele will likely be gone and edourd is on loan.

They also have a summer of rebuilding on the cards and i can't see them replacing the players that will leave with better players unless its more loans as they won't spend £6m or £7m x 4 or 5 players.

We need two good centre halves. We need a strong central midfielder and Arfield and we need a 25 goal a season striker and hopefully Murphy deal made permanent. that's 6. If we bring in that along with maybe 2 or 3 loan guy's to bulk up the squad whilst getting rid of some deadwood we will be much closer.
