Charlie Adam on Soccer am. He said he is waiting for his chance to get 1st team football at Stoke however if it doesn't come along then he may move. He wants to stay in the EPL but said he would only go to one club in Scotland and he is open to that move. Only 31 would be a good signing IMO.


1.) 11 Nov 2017 10:26:42
ID take Charlie back. He’s got a great range of passing and his delivery from set plays and free kicks is outstanding.

2.) 11 Nov 2017 12:21:59
No matter who we bring in be it Jan or next Summer, Charlies wages would be a huge factor!
We need to offload some Players and get them off the wage bill! The Players who are prob top of the list are, Forrester. Herrera. and Pena.
O'halloran. Dodoo. and Halliday may be given a chance to get back into Squad?
Think we'll keep Elton but as for wee Dalcio it looks as if he'll go back to Benfica. Nemane may have a chance, could be worth a punt as come Jan he's in his last 6mths and if he is on wages that reflect his position and doesn't expect silly Man. City money he may stay but it'll be up to the new Manager.
Halliday WILL be thinking he's been given another chance and I hope he takes it (Squad Player)

Need to lose 2 stone.

Did you see him trying to run when he missed the open goal last week?

Rated him at one time but too many pies now

5.) 11 Nov 2017 13:31:48
yes he would fit in with your squad . He is not international class so he would not get picked for his country and he is the slowest player on the planet which fits in with our tactics .

6.) 11 Nov 2017 14:39:56
I’m not for or against Adam coming back but I’m sick to death of folk on here saying ah his wages would be a problem. I think some people on here seem to think players on big wages maintain them as they get older. Players who come from England who are in their earlier 30’s who can’t get regular first team games know fine well they need to drop down wages in order to get first team football, whether that be a championship club or in Scotland.

7.) 11 Nov 2017 15:51:07
Charlie Adam wants to play for Dundee.

8.) 11 Nov 2017 16:39:56
Decent left peg but can't run the lenth ae himself and the only scottish team he wants tae play fur is dundee. the team he supports

9.) 11 Nov 2017 19:05:16
Wouldn’t want him back. Great passer but lazy. Never rated him.

10.) 13 Nov 2017 12:59:43
That one club is Dundee. He has said this before.

11.) 13 Nov 2017 13:36:29
would never take him back he hasn't got it anymore, he used to have the ability to change the game but now up here people would walk around him he is that slow.

we need to get away from these ex players wanting to finish their careers up here as they have waited too long to come back and are now past it.

id take naisy and davis back but no one else and i know we won't get them back



04 Nov 2017 17:51:09
Cosgrove on off the ball in the last minute 5.47pm has said he has heard from senior BBC sports chaps that Derek Mcinnes will be unveiled as Rangers new manager on Thur.


1.) 05 Nov 2017 11:25:15
Hope he's right as I've just read an article in the last 10 minutes saying Mark Allen is going to push the board to appoint Steve mclaren. God help us if that's true

2.) 05 Nov 2017 11:28:47
Cosgrove's another person who scratches around trying to get any crumbs he can at the doors of Ibrox - a despised man not only at Rangers. He's fishing and catching nothing.

3.) 05 Nov 2017 19:21:19
Fifepl. only posting what I have been told. Relax dude.



29 Oct 2017 11:27:55
According to press Rangers have spoken Michel Preud'hommes agent and are waiting to see what transpires. He has a good track record, however I feel as a foreigner he would be hung out to dry if things don't go right. I think Mcinness is the safe bet. He will stabilize the club and galvanize the supporters. Blue nose through and through. let's hope this is the last bump in the road and we can push on back to the top.


1.) 29 Oct 2017 12:24:58
TJBB I couldn’t agree more. I’m sure he’s a cracking manager but it seems as if managers from the continent just don’t seems to work out over here regardless how good or bad they are, with the exception of Advocaat. It has to be McInnies this time

2.) 29 Oct 2017 17:05:51
Mcinnes CV is nothing compared to preud’hommes And do we really want him just because he is Scottish and a bear. if we did go foreign one that has a good track record and insist on a good Scottish back room team to advise would not be a bad thing. A mixture of continental flair with Scottish ruggedness would be a good combination. Personality and man management is key to a good team as we know from years gone by a happy team is a performing team. Walter did it, Souness did it and Advocaat did it. All good man managers who never took bad performances quietly but did there talking in house and not to the press like Pedro

3.) 29 Oct 2017 18:20:24
Souness, smith and Advocaat all had millions to spend though, we are now potless

4.) 30 Oct 2017 08:58:42
Why the obsession with mcinnes? he has done nothing except finish second in a very poor league, so we pay Aberdeen a million in compo to get him, then what, we finish second to Celtic and we're all happy!

5.) 30 Oct 2017 09:01:01
Cause 90% are catholics and can't get to grips with our roots, sure they have probably heard stories but when they experience a full house shouting f the pope its another thing.

6.) 30 Oct 2017 09:10:58
When Souness came to Ibrox players would speak to him who would not necessarily have to spoken to Rangers such was his reputation as a player. The same could maybe be said for Preud’homme. I am not saying we should sign the Belgian but he could attract a better standard of player. If we sign McInnes then the DOF will have to earn his salary attracting the quality of player Rangers require to mount a serious challenge. Whoever the new manager is let's get 100% behind him from day one.

7.) 30 Oct 2017 09:13:49
Well said, bluenose, whoever gets the job will inherit Mark Allen, Graeme Murty and JJ right away. You can't just dismiss good candidates because they're 'foreign' that's a ridiculous outlook. Preud'Homme is far more like an Advocaat appointment. Not Latin, hardly a culture shock for him, great knowledge of Belgian, Dutch and Scandinavian football, won't bring in players from a country like Mexico which is socially and culturally as different to Scotland as you could get, I'm beginning to think it's not a bad shout. Certainly no bigger a risk than McInnes.

8.) 30 Oct 2017 10:37:19
My choice would be to hang onto Murty and Johanson as first team coaches until the end of the season. Let Mark Allen do his job in setting up the scouting system, and bring back Walter Smith as the Manager (remember, Bayern Munich just brought back Jupp Henckyss and he is older than Walter) . We could not possibly get anyone in Scotland with any more gravitas than Walter, and his record and stature stands up to comparison with Brendan rogers. He would not cost the earth and would instill the right behaviour throughout our club. Its a no brainer if he would accept.



23 Oct 2017 22:58:23
Hypothetical question. If at the start of the campaign you were told come the winter break Rangers will be sitting level with Aberdeen and 6 points off Celtic + we have just singed Walker, Moult and Maclean in the Winter window, would we accept that would be a good first half to the season and bodes well for the next half. i'm a half glass full person and still believe this can happen. I will concede there has to be a turning point that puts us on that trajectory and it may be a bumpy road on the way. Windass and Pena are luxury's we can't afford right now, must be dropped. let's see how it all looks come Sunday. don't add fuel to the haters fires that's just what they want.


1.) 24 Oct 2017 00:33:40
Good post but level with Aberdeen looking unlikely and I have a feeling board are too stubborn to sign the players you've mentioned.

Pedro can't win 3 in a row and I think this season is another third place finish in a 2 horse race.

Any faith I had that we might turn around is gone. He's lost the plot for me.

2.) 24 Oct 2017 07:27:46
Again, why are people "haters" if they don't agree with the manager and his results?

3.) 24 Oct 2017 08:48:17
I want to remain optimistic but PC is really making it hard for the fans who continue to support him. Not being able to win 3 games in a row is baffling to me with the money he has spent and the quality of players we have when compared to lesser teams. Its football. you live and die by your results and your transfers. have either been enough?

I would love it if by Christmas we were level with Aberdeen and 6 behind Celtic but I can't help but feel that IF we get this opportunity this team will bottle it! I was really looking forward to this semi and thought the players would give us some hope that they could be consistent . unfortunately though its remains 2 steps forward and 2 steps back.

I also feel the clubs focus shouldn't be on closing the gap to Celtic but it should be on widening the gap between us and the other teams around us. Get a manager that can consistently beat the other teams and then hope for the best against Celtic on the day. Sorry about the waffle. needed to vent after that. If we don't beat Killy . PC should go (pains me to say it) .

4.) 24 Oct 2017 10:36:55
Give pedro xmas see were we are then king n co must b seeing same as us results performance etc not good enough for rangers fc untill king n co make a change suport pedro suport the team and the club if we don't it will be back to were we came from few year back fighting for championship or to survive bottom six

5.) 25 Oct 2017 16:25:51
The board are too stubborn to sign these players? My question is were do we get the money to sign them? .

To get all the supporters on board with our new manager we would have to land a top European/ British coach similar to when we brought in Advocat. Unfortunately we don't have the cash/ league statis for a manager of that caliber at the moment which is why the support will always be split no matter who we get. So based on that we have no choice to accept our circumstances and get behind the new man whoever that may be, 100%.
IMO, Celtic got lucky with Rodgers, right time and place for him/ them and a tim. Had he not been a supporter then he would be in the EPL and they would be hunting in the same market for a manager as us. We need a bit of luck, we are due some, surely.
Apart from WS is anybody aware of a manager out there we could afford that would get the vast majority of fans behind them. The closest IMO would be Micheal oneil, what's your suggestions.


1.) 05 Dec 2017 19:35:54
I think you are correct regarding status of manager we can now attract, l am not convinced DM is the right man but whoever it is l will support 100%.



03 Dec 2017 18:18:47
Just wondering your opinions on when Windass had a shot saved just past the post. Pena was running to the edge of the box, did he stand on the ball on purpose for Windass to follow up and shoot or was it a mistake and a bit of luck.


1.) 03 Dec 2017 18:37:02
A bit of luck am afraid Pena fell over the ball. On Pena I ain’t a fan of him at all but thought he looked more interested today. Still wouldn’t give him a jersey. Hope he proves me wrong

2.) 03 Dec 2017 18:45:52
I was wondering the same thing. I’ve watched it back a few times now and it was either an extremely lucky mistake or one of the best lay offs I’ve seen. I’m still not sure

3.) 03 Dec 2017 19:37:33
I think it was a lay off I think Pena has the talent and bison but just doesn’t have the speed for the Scottish game still doesn’t look fit enough

4.) 03 Dec 2017 19:40:37
I think it was a lay off. The through ball for miller in the 2nd half was class.

5.) 03 Dec 2017 22:46:52
Wow murty could outfox any manager, he comes across as a really nice guy and a positive influence to the squad. The loss to dundee was just a blunder I would like murty till end of the season.

6.) 03 Dec 2017 22:49:14
pena has some really nice touches in the final third. a bit sluggish but putting effort in and keeps the ball moving quickly when it comes to him. through ball was a beauty and he played a really nice one down the line with the outside of his foot at the end of the first half

7.) 04 Dec 2017 21:16:05
watch it bach he kaid it off and pulled the defenders with him. why r folk here wishing the worst of everyone



03 Dec 2017 15:43:42
Sterling effort from the entire Rangers family today, team, manager and supporters. Was worried about Bates but turned out to be safe and solid. Windass, the enigma. Seems to be worth a start, can't fault his effort, goals and assists over the past 2 games. Miller was under par and gave it away a lot however he must do stuff that the untrained eye can't see. Thought Jack was our best player up to you know what. I don't think i'm qualified to comment on that, needs a good ex ref and player to decide one way or other. Said before Murty is not up to it but i'm starting to change my mind. Mcinnes is buckling under the pressure of being the bookies favorite let alone being the actual manager. Next week will be very interesting.
PS: does anyone else think our fitness has improved since Pedro left, we can actually play for 90 minutes now!


1.) 04 Dec 2017 10:28:02
Ive never doubted the players fitness but it just looks as if they’re fitter because they’re playing with more freedom and are a lot happier. they wernt playing for Pedro its simple as that.



30 Nov 2017 20:41:06
Hi chaps, still on a high from last night what a result.

Next manager? I obviously don't know who its going to be but if Mark A is creating the short list and its a British manger then I think he may look at the EPL. Premier league we can't afford but EPL maybe. So I goggled the list of EPL mangers. One stuck out, Steve Bruce. he's on 1 million per year (i think), so affordable. he's got quite a few teams promoted to the PL, not easy. i'm not saying he is my first choice but I wouldn't complain if he was the man. Michel Proude Homme is still my first choice but that looks unlikely now. Anyone else got any left fielders.


1.) 30 Nov 2017 20:48:48
Been a long day, Championship not EPL but i'm sure you know what i meant

2.) 30 Nov 2017 21:19:13
i said mcinnes or graham alexander before pedro appointment maybe not the most ambitious but consistant and affoldable don't get criticism of mcinnes when aberdeen have overall been better than us for the last few years with smaller budget and selling best players

3.) 30 Nov 2017 21:36:20
Cant see it mate he's starting to turn villa around, saying that i don't know who we could or couldn't afford



27 Nov 2017 17:58:04
I think if RES11 gets through the next mgr will be in pretty quick, it all hinges on RES11 which will allow the club to raise cash. No point on trying to get a manager when we don't know our budget. All we can do is prepare a list of candidates.

Pedro gone to soon. No. The board had made their mind up long before and pulled the trigger when he couldn't argue. Imagine the board wanted rid of him but thought let's wait till the agm or the xmas break, but what would they do if Pedro put a string of results together then he would be there till next Summer. In hindsight the board were sitting waiting on their chance.

Short term manager ie till next summer, not a good idea, as Souness said the players have too much power. If the squad don't like the short term a manager they just wait it out and know he will be gone soon. We need someone on a long contact so the manger can reverse that mind game.

As for some support that are already claiming they won't renew season tickets or may stop going to games etc then fair enough its a free country but let me make it very clear, you are not and never will be Rangers class. Go and heat a seat at Motherwell.


1.) 27 Nov 2017 18:18:16
TJBB you may have a point in your res11 point we will hopefully find out on Thursday but as a shareholder I think it will pass now that Ashley’s shares are now in the hands of club72 now regarding renewing season tickets I’ve been a season ticket holder for nearly forty years I’ve followed Home and away I’ve traveled across Europe I’ve seen this club through good times and bad I’ve sat inside Ibrox with less than ten thousand in it I’m heading toward three score years and ten and yes I’m beginning to wander if I can go through another season but don’t give me this I’m not Rangers class

2.) 27 Nov 2017 19:01:14
Hi thinkabout it. that's fair enough you've certainly earned your right to vote with your feet however IMO its supporters like yourself that are the back bone of this club and we need true supporters to show the youngsters how its done, without you and your like the club would certainly be heading for the unimaginable. let's all stick together good and bad. i'm just a frustrated supporter like the rest and apologize for any offence. i'm approaching the half century myself and IMO its what's makes the Rangers supporters different from the rest, we just don't give up, never, not in a million years. Its not in our makeup.

3.) 27 Nov 2017 19:27:40
I know come renewal day my heart will probably over rule my head but this board must not take the support for granted any more if it’s about waiting on investment the fans will accept it but to just say nothing encourages rumours which will grow arms and legs I think Murty has been hung out to dry can you imagine if we loose on Wed nine points behind Aberdeen going to pittodrie at weekend then the board better wear hard hats

Think REV 11 will be passed next hurdle getting a Nomad. Doubt anyone will touch us.

7.) 28 Nov 2017 12:11:21
TJBB, I don't think res 11 will have the immediate effect you imply. Won't it take a while to get any money in from the passing of res 11? Sure the passing of it will give the club a boost and some optimism, but you can't pay a manager or sign players with boosts and optimism. Maybe the first steps toward a future cash injection would give the board confidence to push the boat out financially in the hope that they bring in as much money as they hope. However, I'm not convinced that the failure to appoint a manager is entirely related to res 11.

Ohalloran if played as a striker could be a useful asset in an open game but limited when the other teams park the bus, that's why he is successful at a diddy club and not at Rangers. Doddoo, not sure
but could be handy, if fit, and we suffer injuries to our main strike force. However I don't think either player has a long term future with us.

I appreciate the problems I do hold a science honours degree. Would you fly in an aircraft that was 75% okay, let a nearly qualified surgeon operate on you, take a 2.5 million supercar out with no oil ans 3 wheels, let Donald Trump run the free world, rubbish no that ones true.
Why would you risk our most expensive player in a game that was won in the first 10 minutes just so we can see him injured or performs poorly due to fitness then all insundry can gloat, WTF
Sport science has come a long way since the 70s, that's why KM is still playing when he is 37. Ask yourself would that have happened 30 yrs ago. These guys are athletes and have to be looked after and only when the team working on him says he is mentally and physically ready will he play.

Coldo, 2.5million is SFA for a full top quality international. Yes he has strayed in Mexico, who wouldn't - crazy country. But he has traveled thousands of miles to fight with our club, he has no family, can't speak the lingo and knows nothing of our country and game. If you ask me that takes balls. Could we do that? Give him time he could be a superstar. If it doesn't work out it won't be for the want of trying. Only Let our enemies chip away at us, please support our club and players no matter what.
Anyone willing to predict top 4 for SPL?

Can all you sport scientists please post your qualifications when making the assumption he should be fit after 3 to 4 weeks. WTF do any of you know on his fitness level and how long will it take to reach a suitable level and how to achieve that. Or is it a case of get a sausage supper down you and get out there, boot the ball up and someone will head it in. Get a grip, the guys looking after one of our prize assets are very well qualified in their fields although I must admit they have no qualifications on conspiracy theories. I despair sometimes. If anyone follows this up have some effing knowledge.

Okay, Mike. Put a bit of meat on the bones. Who are the 3 groups of players that are not speaking to each other. Also I note your close relationship with 2 players has now turned to just a source. Also how about a bit of good news since you are in the know, are the new guys any good.

As far as FC Progrès Niederkorn goes, old news as far as i'm concerned but while were on the subject, please note they only lost 1-0 to AEL Limassol which have a squad value of 6.6m, similar to Aberdeen. They are obviously not as bad as the press make out. Their league is similar to the level of the Scottish championship and there squad is valued similer to say QOS at 1.7m. On their day against a team not fully match fit these teams can take a scalp or 2. We have no right to win any game of football, if we think like that we will loose, loose and keep loosing.

Holt does put in a shift, no question however remember he is playing in arguably the most important position for the most important team in Scotland. If we were to list the players Rangers have had in that position over the years we would realize Holt is like having a man short, pardon the pun. We need a player that makes the whole team tick. Someone who can run box to box for 95 minutes, a goal scorer, can control the tempo of the game, can tackle, head the ball and command respect, Pena was supposed to be that player unfortunately he is struggling with the pace of the Scottish game, Dorrans may when fit and on from go some way to fulfilling that role. Kranjar 10 years ago is that player. So The bottom line is we don't have a players like that. Mginn is probably the only Scottish player out there that we could maybe afford. Or If Steven Davis wanted to come home and finish his career at Rangers a bit like when Roy Kean wnet to Celtic. Anyone else got any players in their minds that are could do the "Pirlo" role. Is Barjonas the future?

Sorry candeas in midfield not cardoso.

Tav Mcrorie Bruno Wallace
Candeas Jack Maclean Walker
Fredo Moult

Obviously Dorrans could fit in but I have a feeling he may be injury prone. Mcrorie is worth the gamble all day long.

I was listening to a dutch Sports chap and he gave a good analysis of why they are in a bad place. The EPL snap up all the 16ish year old players from Holland. They don't play and 99% get put out on loan they bank on maybe getting 1 star from 20 and the gamble pays off, however the other 19 players have missed out on all their development and never reach the top. What used to happen in Holland is the eg 20 players would stay and be blooded at an early age and develop fully from the age 16 to 21 playing 1st team football which is why they used to have an abundance of world class players. So when we have a talented young Scottish players its very important to play them. The EPL and other wealthy leagues have a lot to answer for. Are Italy in that same place now.

I never implied that because he had won nothing he would be a bad manager. You make a very obvious point that goes without saying. I was pointing out his lack of experience as a coach and he has no history of winning anything as a player or coach. We need a manager that's been to finals or won or almost won leagues as a player or coach or manager, they need the experience on how to prepare a team for a high stakes game and the in and outs when you are at the top table. We can't take the risk on somebody learning on the job.
