Keep hearing rumours about players saying they don't rate the new guys. Fair enough they may well have said this but I'm almost 100% sure a couple of Mexican internationals (one of which hasn't actually played yet), a 90 odd capped Portuguese international, a Scotland international and a highly rated young Portuguese centre half are all better than the likes of Kiernan, ohalloran, Forrester etc.

Teams don't gel over night these things take time. The new players need to get used to a new country, different styles and different culture. let's give them time to settle before we judge.

It hasn't been an ideal start but I'm not worried about losing closed doors friendlies, we've had seasons in the past where we've had awful pre seasons and won the league. I don't think we will win the league but I think we need to be patient. let's see where we are at the end of August then we can start to judge until then we need to get behind the manager and his new players.


1.) 19 Jul 2017 00:05:30
I think what's happening is people r judging the manager very quickly and mayb not the players.

2.) 19 Jul 2017 00:07:55
Yeah your right teams don't gel overnight but come on, losing to parttimers then getting beat off a second string st Johnstone team with most of our new players involved. The writing is on the wall, anyone who says Pedro should be given a chance is in denial, he is a disaster and all the rumours about unrest and players confronting the manager is beginning to gather pace and with the new season just around the corner i for one hope the board have the balls to sack this guy and bring in a proper manager before it's too late. Unfortunately this board are weak and will stick by this guy until the results will inevitably leave them with no choice but to show him the door. I'm all for giving managers a chance but for goodness sake the job is clearly too big for Pedro!

3.) 19 Jul 2017 06:04:30
It is with regret that I say that I agree with everything you said RonnieR9

4.) 19 Jul 2017 07:34:21
There's been a campaign against Pedro since he walked through the door by the media and it seems a lot of rangers fans are buying into it as well. Results over pre season have been shocking but then it hasn't been a proper pre season as they weren't counting on shocking Euro result. I think the fact many of the new signings can't speak English isn't helping. I've heard the rumours about previous players (kenny miller) specifically saying the new players are rubbish but it always comes from a friend of a friend who supposedly knows a player. Left and right back concern me but I think we should see how things go first few league games before jumping on the bandwagon.

5.) 19 Jul 2017 10:09:22
Agree 100% got to give Pedro and players time I really think it will but all the negative stuff especially from the media won't help they want us to fail I know Europe was hard to take what about the other Scottish teams just as bad and Celtic still have a lot to do for champions league group stages

6.) 19 Jul 2017 10:22:16
Enough of the conspiracy theories. Show me the evidence of a campaign against Pedro. In my eyes, any bad press Pedro has had has been of his own making with his idiotic statements and results.

7.) 19 Jul 2017 10:40:44
The simple truth of the matter is not one thing has changed in his time as manager except some good sound bites and a few signs up and around the training ground.

The new players, from the limited time we saw them, weren't very impressive - but most players need time. What worries me is his "tactics" and "style".

Setting out that last Europa game with both Rossiter and Jack is mind blazingly negative. Persistent mentioning of high press, quick play, crosses from wide and so on are all well and good, but its not showing on the park - Aberdeen have been weakened this summer of that there is no doubt, yet I would still fancy them to finish above us this year, and when you factor in the amount of money invested in the squad, it is a shambles.
Pedro can only take so much blame, you then must start to look toward the board that appointed a man with no real pedigree and a questionable track record at best.

Only time will tell, but I would think from our first 5 games, anything less than 11 points and he has to be replaced.

8.) 19 Jul 2017 11:15:48
With Aberdeen signing Stewart, mackay Stevens and christie I would say they have at least stayed on par with last season.

9.) 19 Jul 2017 11:18:19
I have to admit my concern is the lack of tactics not so much the signings. I personally am not a fan of 433 or 451 whatever you want to call it. I think a 442 diamond would suit us. Jack, Pena, Dorrans and Kranjcar in middle with 2 strikers up front. Playing with 2 strikers is a must for me in most games, especially Ibrox

10.) 19 Jul 2017 15:39:05
did they not sign sean malloney aswell? half decent player

11.) 19 Jul 2017 16:26:58
Jyf is spot on. He has faced negative press amongst some Rangers fans from the beginning. Same type of fans who want a "Rangers man" in.

Neiderkorn was just the car crash most of these numpties were begging for so they can install another "Rangers man".

12.) 19 Jul 2017 19:29:02
Pedro a disaster . not taken in by media. judging him by watching team and results since his arrival . not one good performance from any of his foreign signing as I have stated before Derek mcinness should have been boards first signing and I am sure with millions Pedro has been wasted mcinness would have built a good team to challenge the tims

13.) 19 Jul 2017 20:43:59
Definitely not a fan of the 4-3-3 formation. Imo I think we should start near enough all games 4-1-4-1 then switch accordingly. Our opening results are massive and we will need to build confidence and not go into games thinking we've already won!
We have on paper a harder start than last Season, Motherwell away is tricky and I don't care what the final score is as long as we win the thing.
Thoughts. What formation do u think Ped will go with at Fir Park and who?
My Team in a 4-1-4-1.
Alves (C)
Regarding who plays up front it prob comes down to showing to be on form during the remaining friendlys.

14.) 20 Jul 2017 14:19:29
ronnie, guys like u that put all the negativity out there do nothing other than harm our team and make us sound like greeting faced wains.
yes we have lost a couple of games but that doesn't mean this team won't click.
and to be honest i don't think we will win this league for the next few years realistically but i'm not going to say these players are terrible and the manager is worse just because they haven't clicked yet that's just childish.

15.) 20 Jul 2017 14:23:04
Would someone please tell Pedro what colours gers play I'm his quote after st Johnstone game was he not worried as team was producing and playing well man not up to it



14 May 2016 13:19:22
Keep reading about Aaron Mooy being linked with a move. I reckon that's as far as it will go with him being touted as breaking the A league transfer record Melbourne city are looking for upwards of £2 million which is well out of our price range when we can go and get young lads from down south for 250k or free.


1.) 14 May 2016 22:32:10
Yeah but I think warbs might be willing to pay a little bit more for this boy he's got a future.



28 Jul 2015 12:14:13
Apparantly aberdeen have matched rangers bid for scott allan.


1.) 28 Jul 2015 13:05:23
and exactly where does SA fit into aberdeens squad? Sorry but I don't believe it.

2.) 28 Jul 2015 12:53:18
Wont make any difference, if not now he will wait till Jan and we will sign him on Bosman. If we still want him.

3.) 28 Jul 2015 13:18:05
Not a chance. He's not moving just for the sake of it! He only wants to leave Hibs to come to Rangers, the team he supports! He was more than willing to stay at Easter Road until Gers made their move.

4.) 28 Jul 2015 13:31:52
Why would they bid for SA when he has stated he wants to go to Rangers doesn't make sense to me.

5.) 28 Jul 2015 13:43:30
scott allan would walk into any team in scotland

6.) 28 Jul 2015 14:11:50
Just passing on what I read on twitter. Highly unlikely I know.

7.) 28 Jul 2015 15:08:48
If our bid has been Rejected why only match it

8.) 28 Jul 2015 16:36:11
Derek mccinnes said they are not interested

9.) 28 Jul 2015 18:38:24
Would Aberdeen Qualify as being a bigger club than Hibs? He is only allowed to move to a bigger club.
Anyway no chance he would go there, he's a Rangers man!

10.) 28 Jul 2015 19:45:41
Been reported on sky sports news that he has handed in a written transfer request and stubbs has stated that he will not be sold to rangers as we are hibs main rival for the championship if another team ie premiership team bids an acceptable amount they may sell but he did say no matter how much money rangers offer hibs won't sell to us, also states aberdeen and dundee united have made enquiries regarding SA



22 Jul 2015 21:53:07
Hibs reject bid for scott allan from rangers.


1.) 22 Jul 2015 23:50:23
Believed to be offered £100,000 for him
Should get him for £200,000 - £250,000

2.) 23 Jul 2015 00:31:10
100k bid rejected it says on D Record! If that's true that is a ridiculous offer.

3.) 22 Jul 2015 23:27:07
How much?

4.) 23 Jul 2015 00:37:04
he is desperate to come but nothing will happen this week! expect something to happen next midweek from club & player. patience!

5.) 23 Jul 2015 09:51:00
was it not reported that dundee utd had 205k rejected? if he has been a target I don't know why we left it this late to bid other than to put him off on the weekend? however there was aa report that the bid we made was actually 300k. who knows??



13 Jul 2015 16:33:38
Rangers enquire about martyn waghorn and James tavernier from Wigan. With the later being a right full back I take it that means wabara won't be offered a deal. Seems strange as from what I've heard he is a decent player and more than able to play for a decent championship side down south where as tavernier only managed a few games in loan at Bristol City last season.


1.) 13 Jul 2015 16:51:00
Not sure what's happening with Wabaraa. Tavernier played on loan for City from January, have family in Bristol and actually saw him play when visiting. Looked decent, athletic and strong on the ball. Think Waghorn was pretty highly thought of when he first started out at Sunderland, even capped at u21 level for England, lost his way a bit

2.) 13 Jul 2015 17:06:07
Cheers for the info glue, in my opinion any player who can hold down a place at championship level or top half league one will be more than good enough at any level in scotland. Just hope if these boys sign they can improve and make us money in the future.

3.) 13 Jul 2015 18:18:56
I believe we need a proven goal scorer at a good level,just looking at waghorns career stats,doesn't score many goals for a striker but he may surprise us and could be decent at Scottish championship level.

4.) 13 Jul 2015 19:28:32
MW has already stated that there will be no further interest in Wabaraa. He didn't even feature in game against Spurs.

5.) 13 Jul 2015 20:42:23
Brunkendastard do you know why? Sounded like a decent player.

Aye waghorn stats aren't overly impressive but he has still scored goals. I'd imagine it's not hard to score in the championship up here. unless you're Kenny miller and kris boyd.

6.) 13 Jul 2015 21:05:00
could well be that Wabara has other irons in the fire, or maybe even asking big wages.

7.) 13 Jul 2015 21:06:49
Waghorn has already scored twice against hibs in a friendly in Malaga this week.: so should be able to do a job for us in the championship

8.) 13 Jul 2015 23:20:26
Allegdely Wabarra was looking for contract of £10k a week

9.) 14 Jul 2015 11:28:25
Either Wabara wanted an exorbitant salary we can't afford ( and shouldn't be paying) or he just didn't fit the mould. Can't say that I have ever seen him play nor had I ever heard of him before the trial, so can't comment if he is any good or not. At least we are properly running an eye over these players unlike signing guys like Peralta or Mervan Cellic after watching youtube clips!

10.) 14 Jul 2015 16:10:02
My mistake,he scored a double against hibs in a pre season friendly,he must be really good!!

Right lads shoot me down.

First of all a totally embarrassing result and no excuses at all had we taken our chances we would be through. We didn't and now we're not.

My point is, is this really a bad thing? We were never going to qualify for the groups as we just aren't ready. A whole team of new players and 2 guys who have been out for 10 months. Winning last night would have delayed the inevitable.

Now we have a month before the season starts which gives us time to arrange 3 or 4 decent standard friendlies and maybe time for Pedro to take the players away for a week for some high intensity training. This meaning when the league starts there can be no excuses from anyone.

Yes it's disappointing and utterly embarrassing but this gives us a chance to prepare properly for the league season, something we've not been able to do for the last couple of seasons.


1.) 05 Jul 2017 17:29:18
Good point, we need that.

2.) 05 Jul 2017 18:07:47
Most teams have probably agreed friendlies for the coming season who can we play and how many games do we need?
I think will need to find teams of PL quality so we can be tested. No point playing minows as we l've already seen how that worked out lol

3.) 06 Jul 2017 14:41:54
Europe was always a bonus aslong as we get it right for aug but we do need to get rid of guys like windass who is absolute dross

4.) 06 Jul 2017 14:45:14
Rumors of us playing Forrest away As part of the BM Signing.



27 Jun 2017 17:37:53
Apparently halliday is on his way to Austria to deal a 12 month loan deal to that team from Azerbaijan (they're doing a pre season training camp out there) . Must admit I'm surprised he took up the offer to go out there.


1.) 27 Jun 2017 18:44:53
Azerbaijan! 😫
Sounds more like banishment than a loan deal.
Good luck to him.

2.) 27 Jun 2017 19:21:27
They are in the Europa starting a qualifying round a head of us. I'm not 1 bit surprised

3.) 28 Jun 2017 08:50:44
Is that not where they send criminals in Harry Potter?




27 Jun 2017 01:09:20
All this talk of Tav going to Forrest I'd personally take anything over a million for him and go out sign the boy Logan from aberdeen. Very similar player but can defend unlike Tav.


1.) 27 Jun 2017 05:58:27
How do you know they would sell him to us?

2.) 27 Jun 2017 08:32:49
Tav is better than logan

3.) 27 Jun 2017 08:48:33
Logan is absolutely awful! Aberdeen's worst player!



16 Jun 2017 21:59:54
So that's the two loan boys gone, garner, hill and senderos gone. Looking like Forrester will be away. Hopefully by the middle of next week we'll have 10 players in meaning we still need to get rid of 3 or 4 I reckon? Who would you like to see go from the current squad.


That's 5 i'd like to see go. I'd keep Holt as I reckon he could be decent around decent players but if we g9t offered a couple hundred thousand for him I suppose we'd take it. i'd also keep Windass and crooks and give them one more season to prove themselves.

After the ten (hopefully) we look like bringing in I'd like to bring in one more right back and that would do me for this season.


1.) 16 Jun 2017 22:26:49
Would you keep tav? I wouldn't total liability last year and would put Dodoo and Holt out on loan to current Spl teams but on agreement they couldn't play against us! As for crooks and Windass sell simply not good enough! we're signing the standard of player which is expected at Rangers current international players or the potential to become international players not crap from Accrington Stanley or Doncaster rovers!

2.) 16 Jun 2017 23:12:33
Holt isn't good enough don't know why people can't see that. Doesn't create much and only scored 1 goal all season none in the league. We need to have much better than that

3.) 17 Jun 2017 00:14:45
I would keep Holt, Pedro like Tav and with a strong midfield and defensive set up he should be better than last season. Hodson I would sell and get some money for, Halliday I would pay off just to get rid!

4.) 17 Jun 2017 01:10:27
Tav has been shafted by Warburton for near 2 years. You can't have a full Jack bombing forward with no defensive cover. This season we will have Pena and Jack as cover for the full backs going forward.

I think there's a player in Windass but he didn't get a proper run in the side last season.

As for Holt I can see why people don't like him but again playing with better players giving him more freedom he would be a decent squad player.

5.) 17 Jun 2017 01:11:19
Why am I not seeing Keirnans name anywhere😒 I'd say
Holt (to make space for Barjonas)
I'd only let Tav or Hodson go if we got another RB in.

6.) 17 Jun 2017 01:12:15
Oh and I forgot Forrester. That's how insignificant he is. Couldn't even remember him 😂

7.) 17 Jun 2017 03:50:35
Halliday, holt to go

8.) 17 Jun 2017 08:40:00
Can the people who want Holt to stay tell me what he brings to the team? It's certainly not goals and it's not as if he creates much either?

9.) 17 Jun 2017 10:04:51
Holt brings energy to the midfield. When he gets the ball his first thought is to go forward with it. With 2 solid mids beside him I think he will be an important player for the team. Also 10 goals in 54 appearences isn't too bad for a midfielder.

10.) 17 Jun 2017 13:55:48

Energy what a very no discript word which means nothing. Any Rangers fan would give you that doesn't mean they should play. He scored 1 goal last year which didn't come in the league and he creates next to nothing. Average player whose level is Kilmarnock or Hamilton



05 May 2017 11:35:26
I keep seeing people mention we need to bring in between 10 and 15 new players. Does anyone actually believe that will happen?

In my opinion we will manage to get rid of 5 or 6 players at most meaning we will bring in probably about the same.

Personally I think we have a few decent players at the club only they are short of confidence and fitness.

If we can bring in 1 or 2 good centre halves. A tough tackling midfielder and a play maker and proper goalscorer I think second will be comfortable next season.

We also have krancjar and Rossiter to come back, if both come back to full fitness there's 2 players who are better than anything we have at the moment. We also have Matt crooks who has done well at Scunthorpe to come back too.

A good pre season for the likes of windass, Tav, Holt, Waghorn etc who have struggled with fitness at times this season might see them up their game too.

Anyone disagree?


1.) 05 May 2017 12:09:54
When do they have this preseason? Exactly

Gone are the days when teams had 6 weeks to get your team fit for august start. We could be playing European qualifiers 6 weeks after league finish!

2.) 05 May 2017 13:57:02
I agree we won't be getting rid of 10+ players and bringing in same numbers as we just don't have the money to pay off their contracts and i can't see clubs lining up to buy kiernan halliday o'halloran etc

also agree fitness is poor and confidence rock bottom but as the old saying goes you can put in what god left out and fitness and confidence won't turn most of those guys into players; sorry lads ain't going to happen.

waggy needs to go he just doesn't have it - lots very decent chances missed week in week out at pittodrie hampden and at home etc he just isn't the striker we need and ohalloran halliday kiernan senderos garner hodson are in the same bracket - just not good enough if we want to challenge

3/ 4 solid defenders and cple combative midfielders hopefully added to a fit rossiter (who i do believe has it) along with a proven poacher will get us back on track

3.) 05 May 2017 18:56:59
Now Pedro is at it. He os talking about 12 named players being given to the Board. Thst does not mean 12 coming in. Its a list. I agree with Stuart if Pedro can get rid of 6 then maybe 6 will come in. If Pedro can't get rid of 6 or more then oly 2 or 3 will come in. Rangers can't afford another 6 decent players on the wage bill so its all about replacing what is there. Personally I think King will give him very little but its season ticket renewall time so God knows what he has been promised. There are players coming back so it would be better to buy 3 or 4 decent players rather than 6 or 7 average players. So what happens if no players come in before Europa qualifying and Rangers don't go through.? Then expect no additions at all.

4.) 05 May 2017 19:55:07
We need at least 10 new players that are miles better than what we have and we need to get rid of the dross that we have, so yes hopefully this does happen.

5.) 05 May 2017 20:01:13
Kiernan, senderos, Forrester, hodson, waghorn and ohalloran will not be here next season.

Halliday, McKay, garner, dodoo, hill could go aswell.

6.) 06 May 2017 17:46:17
The problem is that the ones that should be first out the door, like Halliday, will be the ones we can't get rid of! I am hoping that the players that have been out injured or have been out on loan will come in and do a job because other than Miller and possibly Hill and the goalie I wouldn't particularly want any of these players in the starting eleven!

I am hoping that we see hungry players coming in from South America and Portugal that have a bit of quality alongside two or three good young home based players that are of a significantly better quality than what we have.

Fd what do you mean his market value is £250k? We paid a small fee for him and Windass. Crooks hasn't played for us all season and is obviously not in the managers plans. We want him off the wage bill so £150k recoups what we paid for him and his wages (or there abouts) .

In regards to Windass if we get £500k for him I'll be shocked. The guy is so far out of his depth here. Yes he's a powerful runner etc but can anyone honestly say they see him playing at a decent standard in say 2 or 3 years time? By decent standard I mean mid table English championship level or above? I go home and away to watch rangers and I can't see it.

In regards to Forrester, Waghorn, Kiernan, MOH etc. If we were offered anywhere near £250k for each we should bite their hand off. If not they will sit in the stands and take a wage for nothing.

£125k for a players we paid half that for who hasn't played a game for us is pretty good going. Recovers his wages and initial fee.

He'd be a good signing if he was fit. Having not played for a year and a half I'd swerve this one although that standard of centre half would make all the difference.

Bazzabear do you really think we got the best player aberdeen have to offer? I don't know one aberdeen fan who was sad to see Jack go. The same aberdeen fans have all said they would be gutted to lose McLean to us. McLean is a much better player than Jack albeit different types of midfielders. When we signed Jack I assumed he would be used as a squad player not a first team regular.

I personally think Mckay has been played out of position. i'd play him as a number 10 behind the striker. I don't think we have a better passer of the ball than him and I think he would be much more involved playing behind the front man.

Dodoo is not good enough although certainly not the worst from last season. I'd rather keep him over Waghorn but wouldn't be unhappy if both went.

Hardie was below average last season? He was raiths best player and that's coming from raith fans. For whatever reason Hughes didn't fancy him but whenever he played he scored. he's a natural goalscorer. I don't know if he's ready for first team or not but with morelos and Herrera coming in and Miller likely to take a back seat I'd have Hardie before Waghorn and garner any day as he surely can't be any worse and at least he's young and Scottish with a bit of sell on value of he improves.
