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.

Yeah but I think warbs might be willing to pay a little bit more for this boy he's got a future.

Apparantly aberdeen have matched rangers bid for scott allan.

StuartAC

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

Hibs reject bid for scott allan from rangers.

StuartAC

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??

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.

StuartAC

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!!


 

 

03 Jul 2015 12:01:27
Any news on how Andy Halliday has done during his trial? Haven't heard much about him as all the talk seems to be about Reece Wabara.

I work with a Middlesbrough fan who says he's a good player but isn't one for tracking back. Not sure that would work for MW as he seems to like team players.

StuartAC

1.) 03 Jul 2015 13:37:54
He impressed mate been offered a deal from what I have been told by some mutual pals.


2.) 03 Jul 2015 14:18:14
Good stuff, bring him in and hopefully get rid of mackay and aird.


3.) 03 Jul 2015 14:39:59
whats wrong with Mckay and Aird exactly? not been given much first team action over the past season or two. I think they will be very good players when given a run.

people are too quick to write players off as being garbage.


4.) 03 Jul 2015 14:52:16
McKay yes, Aird a big fat naw!!


5.) 03 Jul 2015 16:51:25
Aird has had plenty of chances. He couldn't cross a road.

Mackay as I have stated in previous posts I have a few friends who are raith fans and not one of them has a good word to say about him. If he didn't stand out at raith or wasn't able to become a regular first team player there and he wasn't rated by their fans I'd say that's a good enough reason to assume he won't make the grade at ibrox. Aye he had a handful of half decent games against in division 3 against the likes of montrose and elgin but if I was playing for rangers in that league I'd have looked a no bad player


6.) 03 Jul 2015 16:54:26
Ps

Aird has played 81 games in 3 seasons for us in all competitions. I reckon he's had his chance.


7.) 03 Jul 2015 15:40:18
I agree stevemac in regards to mckay but aird is very 1 dimensional and he had a long run in the team he has a bit of pace but has no skill or finesse struggles to beat a man with very little technical ability , I don't want to get rid of him mind would like to see him after 6 months under some real coaches. Mckay impressed me in pre season last year then was farmed out I think he could be a star for the future if nutured right


8.) 03 Jul 2015 17:53:32
McKay lacks strength for the physical Scottish game. Aird is a bottler takes one tackle and he disappears out of a game. The boy Tom Walsh is twice the player and can't function left or right and cross a ball.


9.) 03 Jul 2015 17:56:39
Totally agree with azzlee the two of them are still young. Given some proper coaching and they might kick on McKay I reckon has more of a chance than aird though. I mean none of the younger generation had a chance at all under coisty .unless it was to hit the ball as high as you can


10.) 03 Jul 2015 17:59:02
Haha do none of you boys keep an eye out on boys when they are sent out on loan? What makes you think mackay has something when he was kept out the raith side by someone called Ryan Conroy and after a couple of runs in the side was deemed not got enough by their coaching staff and fans? If we signed a boy deemed not good enough by livingston/dumbarton/qots you would all be going daft and rightfully so, that's why I don't get the barrie mackay love in.


11.) 03 Jul 2015 23:53:13
I've said it before and I'll say it again MacKay will vanish out the pro game and end up in the juniors! He's not good enough and Aird ain't either. Both have pace but zero end product.


12.) 04 Jul 2015 21:21:24
Mackay not good enuff and aird my god the guy is a terrible player and the 5year deal he had been given is a joke!


13.) 05 Jul 2015 17:43:53
I suppose there is the chance Aird & McKay could shine under warburton but I have my doubts especially with Aird who can't cross a ball and like StuarcAC Says McKay isn't strong enough for me although I would like them to turn it round but like I said before I do have my doubts


14.) 05 Jul 2015 17:47:07
Sorry I got my statement wrong in my last post it was right about now who says McKay lacks strength which I agree with and not StuartAC

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?

StuartAC

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.


 

 

08 Mar 2017 10:58:28
I realise he's probably well out of our league, but Lassana Diarra has recently been released by Marseille. Exactly the type of player we need, probably wasn't on huge wages at Marseille and because he's been released might take a drop in wages to get back playing again. Don't know his situation but was a cracking defensive midfielder a few years ago and has been in France squads recently.

StuartAC

1.) 08 Mar 2017 12:50:33
He's off to china, he wasn't released by Marseille for any old reason, he is desperate for a big payday so went on strike.


2.) 08 Mar 2017 22:55:51
Fair enough only show. Didn't see anything about him going to China but that makes sense.


 

 

11 Aug 2016 15:00:26
How do people come to the conclusion that they'd rather hodson over tav? Hodson didn't shine at a poor Kilmarnock last season whereas tav was up there as one of our best players scoring 15 or 16 from right back and being involved in another 15 or 16 on top of that. We've seen hodson a couple of times against poor opposition and people want him to start haha. He was signed as back up for the full back positions nothing more.

StuartAC

1.) 11 Aug 2016 15:26:24
hodson stood out at Kilmarnock and burst into the scene at a young age at Watford. taverner needs a kick up the arse or he will lose his place to hodson as hodson can actually defend.


2.) 11 Aug 2016 15:28:54
He's a defender to start with. Tav isn't. In the premier league we will need a better defence. We're not going to be romping every game so we need to be tighter at tbe back. That's just my opinion.


3.) 11 Aug 2016 15:54:14
hodson was good at killie last year but tavs was probs our second or third best player last season and I think in th modern game he is a great player with a bit to learn defensivly but is young and can learn.
we have a fullback that scores goals which is what will make him worth millions in one or two years.


4.) 11 Aug 2016 17:05:42
Tav may have scored 15 goals but how many did he cause with poor defending?


5.) 11 Aug 2016 17:26:10
Let's not forget that Wallace was not overly clever in defence either and contributed significantly fewer goals.


6.) 11 Aug 2016 18:54:49
Wallace was our best player last year and previous years.


7.) 11 Aug 2016 19:23:51
James Stirling

Can you explain how you would teach Tavernier what he needs to learn defensively? He can't tackle or doesn't know how to mark anyone and that's skills you pick up as a boy. He has probably being playing football for around 15 years so if he hasn't learned to defend now why do you think he will improve now?


8.) 11 Aug 2016 22:16:08
wallace certainly wasn't our best player. he is a fan favourite because he stayed he isn't even as good as the likes of graeme shinnie.


 

 

03 Aug 2016 15:18:08
Why are so many people leaving Waggy out of their current best 11? The guy was our top scorer last season and already has 4 in 2 games this season. What more do you want?

StuartAC

1.) 03 Aug 2016 16:04:10
To be honest the goals in the cup count for nothing really and Wags could/ should have scored more than that given the standard of opposition. I found it frustrating watching how reluctant he is to have a go with his right foot, makes him really predictable and he missed out on numerous chances because he makes it too easy for the player to close him down on his left foot.

Having said that, for where we are as a club, I am happy enough with Waghorn myself, he is a capable player. I do however hope he plays mostly from the right side and cuts in on the left from there because he just looks awkward at times through the middle.

That for me is the difference between him and Griffiths (the rat) . Griffiths is almost all left foot but he can mix it up when pushed to and go with the right, making him more effective through the middle. Waghorn is just all left foot which cuts down his angles of play. Honestly think he could add about 25% to his tally simply by mixing it up now and then and taking it on his weaker foot, keeps the defender guessing if nothing else.


2.) 03 Aug 2016 16:10:55
Well said! StuAC.
I can't understand the thinking. He isn't on his best form but he's still performing miles ahead of all our other options.


3.) 04 Aug 2016 11:53:36
He came back for pre season early and looks fitter than he did last season. Yes he's all left foot but if he was two footed and scored 40 goals a season he wouldn't be at rangers. He missed chances in the league cup but bare in mind this was pretty much pre season and he scored 4 goals in 2 starts. For he's a first pick until the goals dry up or he loses form.


 

 

23 Jul 2016 08:58:34
Hearing a lot of rumours on rangers sites regarding the Australian lad Jamie Mclaren, I've watched a lot of Australian football over the last year or two (two young kids who love an early rise at the weekend) and I reckon he'd be a great signing. Knows how to find the net and was a top player in a league not any worse than the SPL last season. Bring him in and a commanding centre half and I'd be delighted with our business over the summer.

StuartAC

1.) 23 Jul 2016 09:24:02
This could be why warburton keeps saying that the press haven't found out who the striker is that we have an interest in,

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.

The reason he's not in the squad is because he's on holiday. Players who played at the Euros will return to pre season a couple of weeks later than everyone else.

This is a deal we need to push through. The lad has been invited to train with a lot of top English sides so he must have something about him. £150k I suppose is a lot of money for a 16 year old from Livingston who's only played a few games but if he reaches his potential he could make us millions.

Totally agree. He's had 5 or 6 games and he's not looked comfortable in one. Never a centre half for a start. Infact never a footballer.

To be fair nowadays it's not worth having a season ticket. You save pennies from buying tickets for each game. I've been a season ticket holder for 15 years and with games being played almost every day of the week now I'm lucky if I make it to 13/ 14 home league games out of the 19 due to work and family commitments. I'll still renew mine and my son's season tickets because I don't won't to lose my seats. Tv is killing football for real fans.

This whole £30 million warchest gives me a right laugh. Never once has DK said he would spend 30 mil on players. He said the club needed about 30 mil investment which includes sorting ibrox, signing players, signing on fees etc. Anyone who thinks other wise needs to give their head a wobble.

We have absolutely no need for safe standing sections in my opinion. They've only done it across the city to appease the bigot brigade. End of the day old firm and european games will always be a good atmosphere and standard league games will always be as they are with or without a standing section. What's changed at Celtic park with the standing section? Absolutely nothing as that section stood anyway Just like the union bears. Complete waste of time and money.
