Davis permanent deal almost complete and by what Kent's saying there is a REAL possibility of not only getting him back for next season but being able to get him on a Permanent deal.
It's the tabloids who have been valuing him at £9m.
I realistically think we could push the boat out and get him for £4-5m plus add ons
It would explain our strategy of signing younger players on less wages and no transfer fees to help accommodate a cpl of signings of this standard.
Pena, Herrera and Wallace's wages are £70k a year between them off the wage bill.
Can see Rossiter, Holt, Dodoo, Dorrans, Lafferty, Grezda, Alnwick and Foderingham to name a few being offloaded in summer to generate another couple of million in fees and saving us another £80k in wages.
That's before Alfredo's fee and wages, futures bright.

1.) 02 May 2019 11:04:00
Glasgow ranger pena, Herrera and Wallace wage bill together is a lot more than 70k a year more like 70k a week between them.

2.) 02 May 2019 12:23:26
I think he meant a week, just a misprint, that was a good well thought out post GR.

3.) 02 May 2019 12:32:10
Dissapointed that we are keeping Davis. If he was playing well then maybe but I think they wages could be used elsewhere. We need youth and pace in the midfield. Also a solid unit. Davis doesn't match any of them. I agree with the post above. I lot of players needing off the wage bill. Perhaps keep Rossiter but I'm not sure. Dorrans is another. Need shot of.

4.) 02 May 2019 12:43:30
Kent is worth more than 4-5 Million. Liverpool know they will get more than that with the current crazy fees. I wouldn’t pay that for him anyway. 6 goals and 6 assists in just under 35 games? I’d expect double that from a Rangers wide player who are more often than not on the front foot playing teams on a tenth of their budget. A loan deal I would 100% welcome. Davis has found some form of late and probably deserves another year. There will be a few out the door and 1 or 2 that might raise a few eyebrows.

5.) 02 May 2019 12:56:58
As1974 I wasn’t overly keen on Davis returning but now he is match fit and up to speed you can’t say he’s playing not playing well. I’d offload both Dorrans and Rossiter if I’m honest.

6.) 02 May 2019 13:22:09
davis will help the younger lads.

the guy is a model professional.

7.) 02 May 2019 13:38:25
As 1974 so you would keep rossiter and let Davis go 🤣🎃 you don't need to say anything else.

8.) 02 May 2019 14:04:21
Two points on this - with a full pre-season behind them Davis and Dorrans along with Arfield will hands down be the best midfield trio in Scotland. Would be very surprised and disappointed if we let go of Dorrans. He's a friend of my cousin, who is an ex-teammate, and he says he played through the pain barrier his first season despite never being more than 50% as he is a die hard bluenose and that Gerrard had to basically force him to take this entire season to get right. Gerrard rates him and has wrapped him in cotton wool this year because he wants him in his starting 11 next year.

9.) 02 May 2019 14:09:14
Get Davis and keep rossiter, we need a squad not eleven players.

10.) 02 May 2019 14:32:30
Davis is dictating the game now, part of the reason why we are playing so well. As1974 sorry mate but what you are saying is just pure p1$h👍.

11.) 02 May 2019 15:03:04
agreed keep davis I was wanting him away at the start but now clear he wasn't match fit. has played brilliant last 4 or 5 games. rossiter holt Docherty for me can all leave. although I do like rossiter.

12.) 02 May 2019 15:48:27
I think Docherty will be a big player for us. Has bags of ability, a great engine and can score when he powers forward. Can’t understand people wanting rid of him. Gerrard rates him and knowing both him and his family, he is desperate to shine in blue and win trophies at Rangers.

13.) 02 May 2019 16:04:49
I'd want to see Docherty have a season out on loan in the SPL to see him in the environment, next season will be important for him I think. Someone like Allan Campbell would be a better option to bring in IMO however.

14.) 02 May 2019 17:03:26
Ibroxforme Gerrard rates him that much he was deemed not good enough to get in our midfield this season. hence why shipped out on loan to League 1. not doubting he's a decent we player. BUT. arfield jack mccrorie kamara davis are all better footballers than him. So if he did join the squad again he will only get handful of games. not what the kid is wanting at his age. can also add a fit graham dorrans to that list.

15.) 02 May 2019 18:47:42
Gerard did not rate alves who is now
Playing for AC Millan
He now rates Greg Stewart and young
Hastie looks like he building capable of finnishing at least second next season.

16.) 02 May 2019 20:27:14
Just my opinion but I think he does rate him and there’s very regular contact. England League 1 largely a better standard than SPL. Whatever, we’ll see what the gaffer does.

17.) 02 May 2019 21:07:18
alves doesn't play for ac milan.

18.) 02 May 2019 21:33:17
Is there any chance we can raid Motherwell again for Turnbull, he is undoubtedly the pick of their Academy.

19.) 02 May 2019 22:06:43
Macbow when did alves sign for AC milan. He signnon a pre contract? Thought he was at mid table parma?

20.) 02 May 2019 22:43:41
So what's Davis done since he came in? We need to forgot his first stint with us and just judge him as a player now. He's on crazy wages and for me he doesn't justify it.
I said I'm not sure about Rossiter.

21.) 03 May 2019 08:09:14
wagman I don’t know where to start with your post. He’s forced him to take the full season to get right? Surgery has forced him out for long periods over the last two seasons. I’m not convinced he’s in the long term plans. The chances are he remains as it might be difficult to offload him. And him being a big bluenose blah blah so are we! Can we get a game. He’s played to play football and his injury record of late is terrible.

22.) 03 May 2019 15:51:10
Rossiter will never play for Rangers again.



28 Apr 2019 07:58:28
Greg Stewart looks to have signed, 3 year deal. I thought he played v well for Killie when deployed through the middle in 1st half of campaign.
McInnes has been playing him out wide and he's been struggling a bit.
I'd imagine he will he competition and cover for Arfield.
We will need to be selling or releasing a good few players now at the end of the season.
Wallace out of contract and Coulibaly back to Angers are only 2.
Hastie, Jones and Stewart all in on Bosmans or development fees so I'd imagine Grezda, Lafferty, Rossiter, Dorrans, Alfredo, Holt and Dodoo are likely to be sold.

1.) 28 Apr 2019 08:36:30
There are plenty of players to move on that are not good enough👍.

2.) 28 Apr 2019 13:15:57
Terrible signing.

3.) 28 Apr 2019 13:24:59
Another waste of a wage, well done Rangers!

4.) 28 Apr 2019 13:46:49
8 goals and 6 assists in league. Arfield has 10 goals and 6 assists in same league playing for the team who has scored the most goals.
Stewart is a decent signing.

5.) 28 Apr 2019 18:12:01
If strategies his Kilmarnock form
Then we have a good player on our hands
But can our manager get the best out of a player.

6.) 28 Apr 2019 20:27:54
Very disappointed if Stewart signs. We only should be going for 4 players max, all certain starters, better than we have. Stewart comes nowhere near fitting the bill for me really worried if that's the standard we are looking at.

7.) 28 Apr 2019 21:16:37
If you think Stewart is a good signing then it shows as a fan what kind of mediocrity your happy to accept get real east side must be trembling at that signing it's a joke.



30 Mar 2019 23:47:32
Greg Stewart often linked with us in the past after excelling at Killy and the Sheep is to be announced as Rangers player in the tabloids on old firm day tomorrow, good signing at league level anyway.

1.) 31 Mar 2019 07:12:09
Totally underwhelming.

2.) 31 Mar 2019 14:05:49
Excelling with his one goal for Aberdeen aye?

3.) 31 Mar 2019 23:43:49
Worse than shinnie IMO.

4.) 01 Apr 2019 07:17:04
I posted this back in January about Greg Stewart coming at the end of the season and I was shot down as it being a lot of sh*** basically! Seems like it could be true but we will wait and see how it pans out.

5.) 02 Apr 2019 09:30:09
He’s scored 1 on return to Sheep as he’s been played out on the left and missed a cpl of games through injury.
He excelled for Killy in the 10 role in 1st half of season that’s where he would be used with us as back up and competition for Arfield.
Killy went right off the boil when he left and only now are they starting to pick up again, he’s proven in this league, wouldn’t cost much in wages and has no transfer fee.
Decent signing for me, makes sense to add him to squad.



05 Mar 2019 22:58:04
Dortmund are the latest side to be linked with EL Buffalo according to Sky Sports News he's very much on their radar.



23 Feb 2019 17:13:37
Graeme Shinnie has been signed on pre contract for next season.
Won't be announced till after Scottish Cup tie but deal has been signed this week.
For me he was outstanding in win at Pittodrie last month and is a better version of young McCrorie.
Coulibaly will return to Angers and Rossiter will be sold for minimal fee with Docherty returning to club when Shrewsbury loan ends.
Davis only on loan till end of season with him in straight fight with Dorrans to see who stays.

1.) 23 Feb 2019 18:10:50
Don't know how good your info is regarding graeme shinnie signing for us mate and like some on here, I don't doubt you, when you're only sharing on here with fellow bears, to what you've been told! that's what these pages are all about. If its true and shinnie does sign for rangers, then i think he'll need to settle for being a squad player, who will only get a start from time to time, through injuries or loss of form, of the better midfielders at our disposal! Our current strongest midfield 3 imo are, ryan jack, glen kamara and scott arfield! With ross mccrorie, andy halliday, greg docherty, steven davis, matt polster,
graham dorrans all waiting in the wings! With the future of both lassana coulibaly and jordan rossiter, to be decided in the summer. So where would shinnie fit into our midfield? I personally don't think we need shinnie or should sign him! Its an outstanding, creative no.10 midfielder we're needing!

2.) 23 Feb 2019 19:09:35
hope this info is correct as i think shinnie has a lot to offer good player with a lot of dig in his game big loss for the sheep which makes it all the sweeter if true.

3.) 23 Feb 2019 19:15:45
What a load of single fish. Why WHY make up stories? I have only once had info about a signing and that was Goldson. Who would we drop for Shinnie? nonsensical.

4.) 23 Feb 2019 20:23:19
Queens 11, which midfielder do we drop for graeme shinnie then mate?
None IMO because we already have better than shinnie at the club!

5.) 23 Feb 2019 20:35:47
Shinnie can play CDM and LB. I'd think he'd be a squad player. I think we will have a bit of a clear out in the summer, especially in midfield. I personally don't think he's any better than what we have but I'll trust SG judgment.

6.) 23 Feb 2019 20:43:36
I was told this in January. I was told he’d signed as it would be kept under wraps until later in the season.

7.) 23 Feb 2019 22:43:48
Shinnie is good enough to rival Camara and Jack for 1 of the midfield holding positions. Remember Wallace is out of contract in summer and won’t be renewed and Shinnie can also drop into LB to give us a bit of physicality and experience in there if required.
Tbf Halliday has totally surpassed my opinion of his ability in there from Tynecastle display to Old Firm he has really stepped up and played!
IMO I like Docherty and McCrorie but think Shinnie is better than both sane as Halliday (in CM) and Rossiter, not seen much of Polsner to give honest opinion.
Maybe Gerrard likes Shinnies versatility to play back up LB the way he does with Polsner as RB back up.
Rumour will be confirmed shortly, shoot me down if it doesn’t become true but I’m confident what Iv been told is factual.
Enjoy weekend, 2-1 tomorrow 8/ 1 fill your boots 👍🏻.

8.) 23 Feb 2019 23:20:43
I posted this in the window and was shot down in flames . He’s the type of player the manager referred to last week - a leader . Would be a welcome addition.

9.) 24 Feb 2019 00:03:39
Shinnie is a leader and real competitor and his original position is left back. On a free I would take him as he would make the squad stronger.

10.) 24 Feb 2019 06:59:13
Graeme shinnie IMO won't sign for rangers to just be a squad player.
He's in his peak years as a footballer and will want to play at his next club, week in week out! For me he wouldn't get that at rangers because for me both ryan jack and glen kamara are better than him and that's why i just can't see us signing him! We've got too many similar midfielders at our disposal and badly need a very creative no.10 midfielder, first and foremost!

11.) 24 Feb 2019 08:23:33
I can actually see this being true. We had signed jack on a pre contract long before it was announced. I think Shinnie would be a good addition to the squad. Can play several positions and knows the Scottish game.

12.) 24 Feb 2019 15:25:00
I heard this as well and posted it in January. Apparently he told his neighbour who passed on the info. Must be trying to kerp it under his hat as he doesn't want a Ryan Jack situation where that shower will make his life hell while he is still at the club. Just passing on what i'd heard. On another note, just how good a footballer is Ryan Jack? First name on the team sheet for me.

13.) 24 Feb 2019 15:27:49
Don't want Shinnie. What a bang average player.

14.) 24 Feb 2019 16:42:27
Surely signing someone at his 'peak' is better for the club than signing players towards the end of their careers? Like I've said I have no idea if shinnie will sign for us but if he does. I think he'd be a handy player to have in the squad.

15.) 24 Feb 2019 18:46:37
Shinnie being signed for the left back role.

16.) 27 Feb 2019 13:18:16
If this was true why would we want to wait until after the cup game to announce?

17.) 04 Mar 2019 02:35:17
Our midfield is, bulging with players better than Shinnie. Even if we get rid of Coullibally, Dorrans et al he's not going to get a regular game.

12 May 2019 00:42:09
Apparently looking at both Wellbeck and Sturridge (if contract not renewed as looks likely)
I know both have had their fair share of injuries but with Alfredo almost certain to leave I'd happily welcome either, both great impact players to come on for Defoe.
Wages may be a stumbling block but Defoe's here already so never say never.

1.) 12 May 2019 04:58:49
Wellbeck and sturridge to come off the bench as impact players to replace Defoe 🙈hope your not too rough this morning mate there is a big game on.

2.) 12 May 2019 07:55:28
Wellbeck granddad was in the bomb disposal unit in WW1 his name was Stan Well Back
It’s the way I tell them,

3.) 12 May 2019 09:12:31
Sturridge is known as “ sicknote “ to the Liverpool supporters, if he gets hit with a feather he’s too sore to play, I know Wellbeck has his injury problems but at least he’s willing, Sturridge wouldn’t be an asset to Rangers, he’d be a hindrance. Most of my family are Pool supporters, they go over a lot to see them, and whilst they say Sturridge is a decent player, he has no heart.



31 Jan 2019 16:52:01
Unless there's some dramatic late movement in or out I'd imagine that's our business completed in this window.
Personally delighted we have kept all our key players and added 3 1st team squad players and 2 good Bosmans.
See Davis as being 1 of 4 that will be rotated in 3 midfield positions and Defoe as a super sub type.

1.) 31 Jan 2019 18:27:12
Mite get Kamara in this window but why so many mid fielders.

2.) 31 Jan 2019 20:24:48
Hope rossiter stays injury free and does well at bury, with him jack, Docherty, Mcrorie and kamara future looks good for our midfield.



15 Jan 2019 15:24:52
Been reported this morning that new Forest boss Martin O Neill is tipped to recall Joe Wirral. If he does I'd be happy to see McCrorie deployed as a CH now Davis has been brought into midfield role.
Especially now we might even go 2 up top the chances for McCrorie is middle of park may be limited.
For me he was a standout in last game V them in middle of park but with Jack, Davis, Arfield, Coulibaly and potentially Kamara before Dorrans returns from injury and Rossiter potentially on way out and Docherty still out on loan there's more than enough competition in there.

1.) 15 Jan 2019 16:04:18
O’Neil prob just takin joe away from us with no intention of playing him.

2.) 15 Jan 2019 16:09:36
Still have katic mccauley and goldson. mccrorie is hopeless at centre half. must definitely be used as a centre mid or nothing at all imo.

3.) 15 Jan 2019 16:25:13
Does anyone actually know if there is a recall clause? Generally if we paid a fee to loan the lad there normally isn’t a recall clause inserted.

4.) 15 Jan 2019 16:30:53
Yea Paul agree mcorrie no For centre half . didn’t suit him at all.

5.) 15 Jan 2019 16:49:07
Katic is the ready made replacement. Feedback from Tenerife is he that he is focused and in the zone.

6.) 15 Jan 2019 16:50:40
Young McCrorie never a centre half.

7.) 15 Jan 2019 17:21:18
Gerrard even said mccrorie as a centre half would have ruined his career yet people still want him there🤔.

8.) 15 Jan 2019 17:57:36
Young McCrorie is a cdm all day, every day and twice on a Sunday. He was born to play there and will never do as a centre back.

9.) 15 Jan 2019 19:01:32
Unless in the contract there is nothing o’neil can do to take him back. I wouldn’t lose sleep over it.

10.) 15 Jan 2019 22:08:18
Why would we play at McCrorie at centre half out of position when we have a good centre half Katic waiting in wings some people don’t half talk out their ahol.

11.) 16 Jan 2019 16:04:25
Correct Stewarty.

04 May 2018 22:27:24
Mark Allen has been approached via 3rd party to be informed of the availability of John Terry who is desperate to be involved in new look Rangers for next season.
He's on £60k a week at Villa but contract expires at end of season.
He did earlier state he refused to play in Premier League against his beloved Chelsea so any deal wouldn't hinge on Villas play offs hopes.
I know Alves is old and his legs have gone but Terry was never graced with pace but reads the game as well as anyone and can put his body on the line, score important goals and motivate those around him, would be good signing on intent for me.

1.) 05 May 2018 06:40:03
Just hide your wife

2.) 05 May 2018 07:09:26
Terrys passion has gone he has just gone through the motions at Villa.

The problem though is that you can’t guarantee a fully fit Lallana for any period of time. A loan deal i'd be open to but it’s highly unlikely given his probable wage demands. I think he’s a good player but not a great player I tend to agree with L17mac about both value for money signings and signing Turnbull. Murphy’s stats are unreal and that’s in a poorer Gers side than we have now.
For me Kent is a massive player in games V celtic which are pivotal to our success in the league but he’s far from the finished article and not worth more than £5m.
With the English football riches on offer Iv no doubt Liverpool will be able to get closer to £10m for him. If it’s only top Championship clubs and bottom 6 BPL clubs who want him there’s every chance we will get him on another loan deal.

Markovic was a complete flop at Liverpool and was there for about 4 years. It’s a position we have more than enough options in, especially while Kent is still available.
It’s obvious we need a LB a quality number 10 and potentially a striker if Alfredo goes.
I think it’s more than likely he gets sold with the funds being used to buy Kent, a 10 and a striker.
Halliday, Barisic and Flanagan have all at different times looked decent at LB so although it’s not a priority position I think at least 1 of them will be surplus to requirements with an upgraded replacement added especially as Waldo is off also and his wages become available to reinvest in squad.

11 May 2019 14:21:32
I’d imagine Alfredo Morales leaving and the fee received will have a huge bearing on transfer budget. Remember just because players signed on bosmans have no transfer fee to pay doesn’t mean there’s no signing on fee.

I’d imagine the budget will be around the £10m mark with Alfredo staying with him leaving for day £15m then I’d say our budget would increase to £15m overall.
I think there’s £15m set aside for fees and wages from season ticket money so if we don’t sell anyone or make group stages that’s our limit.

Getting to group stages and selling Alfredo would give the club that money back but don’t expect us to sell Alfredo and all the fee to be reinvested in playing squad in addition to season ticket money.
I’m just excited we are progressing each window under Gerrard and look forward to another 2-3 big players being added hopefully to our squad.

Katic is worth £3m, Goldson £5m and Worral somewhere in between. Worral and Katic are young players so occasionally have a poor game but both are generally good players.
Goldson has played about 50 matches and is clearly shattered but he’s well underrated by many of our fans.
We have battles with 9 or 10 players on numerous occasions and he has been solid in there.
His tackle at celtic park when last man was superb, fair enough he could have cleaned out Eduardo for opener but generally for the sheer amount of games he’s played in this season including 14 in Europe you can count his mistakes on 1 hand.
We have conceded 24 all season and only 3 in 3 v them compared to 50 last season.

Brown should have been at least booked for his part in Morelos incident where the ball is nowhere near any of them and he makes contact with Alfredo.
Can’t understand why you get booked celebrating a goal with your own fans but not when you goad the opposition fans, no wait you do unless your Scott Brown.
He should have been sent off for 3 yellow card offences, Kent has to go for lifting his hands aswell.
Not seen penalty incident again but thought it was a penalty at the time.

Middleton is nowhere near the standard of Kent. Middleton is a decent player who is still very young and predictable. For his age he’s very good but in terms of 1st team at Rangers he’s not good enough yet.
His youthful enthusiasm means his direct style surprised a few early on but he shows defenders too much of the ball.
Kent on the other hand can go inside or outside and has a better final ball.

We need to press them high up the pitch and take the game to them like we did at Ibrox.
Don’t stand off them and let them settle into the game, it’s them who are under pressure they are at home and EXPECT a win.
Lenny knows anything other than a win puts his future job prospects under threat so let’s go for it this time and unsettle them and give our season a shot in the arm.
If we come back down to 7 points having beat them home and away with old firm at Ibrox to come they will start to crumble.
They have scored 4 stoppage time winners this season, 3 in their last 3 away games, we have conceded stoppage time goals to go from win to draw with Aberdeen, Motherwell and Hibs.
That’s the difference between us is mentality not ability so a big performance on Sunday and hopefully a win will so wanders for our confidence going forward.
