My understanding is Murty will prepare and manage team for Saturday.
Aberdeen will be contacted early next week to ask permission to speak to McInnes and to try and negotiate a deal with him before compensation is agreed.
Board don't want to seem like they are rushing decision and they are giving DOF his place to see if he has any viable alternatives during this week.
McInnes is up in Glasgow area on Saturday to face Hamilton in possibly his last game as Sheep manager, there may be an informal meeting set up while he's here.
All things going to plan he will lead Rangers out ironically against Hamilton in his 1st game after getting 2 weeks with new squad.


1.) 02 Nov 2017 11:02:53
An 'unofficial meeting set' up won't happen! We have to approach the sheep first

2.) 02 Nov 2017 12:16:00
Obviously Murty will take the team on Saturday as we don't have a manager not really hard to fathom out

3.) 02 Nov 2017 22:04:39
I think he means we will get permission to see if we can agree terms with McInnes before agreeing a package for Aberdeen. Happens all the time with transfers. No point spending time agreeing a fee with a club for player or manager if that person doesn’t want to go or can’t get the money they want.



30 Aug 2017 08:04:07
Rangers will be making their final bid for Walker today of £700k if not accepted we will move onto other targets. We are hopeful it will go through now new manager is in place. Watch this space.


1.) 30 Aug 2017 10:21:09
craig won't sell him to us as half the fans already don't like him and he would be committing carreer suicide.
this means th deal won't happen.

i hope we can get a left winger in and a full back as we definitely need cover

2.) 30 Aug 2017 10:39:25
Peds my mate is a Jambo and walker was booed by a section of the crowd against Motherwell on Saturday and apparently has showed a really poor attitude since the rangers bid. Hopefully Levein will sell to get some cash to freshen his squad although I think he was behind the transfers when cathrow was there.

3.) 30 Aug 2017 12:00:28
If a Team came in for one if ours and he wanted to go whether he supported them or not I would want him to go. Surely most Hearts Fans will feel the same. They have decidede to hold out for as much as possible and fair enough but are taking a gamble one which if we could've brought a decent loan in early and was playing out his skin then I'm thinking we probably would've waited until jan etc poss Dalcio was earmarked but failed to produce

4.) 30 Aug 2017 12:23:37
i know a few hearts fans and they all said the same thing to me that they would rather have the player for another season than 1 million to waste on 2 average players



27 Aug 2017 21:02:43
Rangers to table FINAL £700k bid early this week for Jamie Walker.
Hearts were set to accept £650k bid 2 weeks ago before they sacked their manager. Fearing a backlash from the Hearts fans who own a substantial part of the club as part of the fans ownership scheme they put it on hold until a new manager is appointed.
That is expected to be concluded in next 1-2 days and with Walker telling the club he intends to see out his contract its unlikely the new manager will not sanction the move to enable him to free up some cash to buy his own players to shape the squad.
Rangers are hoping £700k will seal the deal.
I don't know Hearts board or Jamie Walkers agent if this doesn't happen before window closes shoot me down but the noises i'm hearing is they expect this to be over the line before window closes.


1.) 28 Aug 2017 08:23:42
In the modern game its very rare that a new manager comes into a club and makes decisions so quickly. They have a director of football.

2.) 28 Aug 2017 09:39:57
Not if the DOG and the new manager are one and the same

3.) 28 Aug 2017 12:17:18
Sorry guys, but from what I've seen of j walker, I can't say I'm jumping for joy at the thought of him signing for us. Hope I'm wrong

4.) 28 Aug 2017 12:26:03
I would imagine the board and DOF would have their opinion but buying and selling players would be Managers remit. After already sanctioning new transfers for Cathro like Berra and Lafferty who will be on decent wages.
I'm sure the transfer kitty will be in need of a top up if new manager is allowed to get his own men in over next few days. It makes sense for a Manager to want to generate a decent fee rather than have an unhappy player around the club who he will then lose for nothing and with the board already setting an asking price of £1m proves they are receptive to selling the player.

5.) 28 Aug 2017 16:54:55
Did anyone really expect walker to play well against us? He has made it clear he wants to play for us and will want to engineer a move. If he played well he would have given reason for hearts to demand more money when we clearly won't pay!

6.) 29 Aug 2017 00:56:12
Hearts need the money! New stand over budget and Foundation of Hearts membership falling monthly.



14 Jul 2017 21:31:39
Rangers have confirmed they will host Marseille at Ibrox next Saturday 22nd July with 3pm kick off.


1.) 14 Jul 2017 23:04:27
Oh dear.



12 Jul 2017 21:56:53
Northampton Town have bid accepted for Matt Crooks. The Cobblers have had a bid accepted believed to be approx £250k plus add ons with Scunthorpe pulling out of the running after their £150k bid was rejected.
Another 1 off the wage bill with a small fee that could help us in pursuit of Jamie Walker et al.


1.) 13 Jul 2017 00:04:40
I think we'll get rid of most of them to clubs like this as that's their level - except Kiernan who I think we'll have to pay off as nobody in their right mind would want him.

2.) 13 Jul 2017 07:07:14
And to think we paid 100k for him and windlass! Not bad going considering he only played a handful of games

3.) 13 Jul 2017 08:00:48
Wee-Ecky I think somebody is in for Kiernan for £200k mate, think we are negotiating fee rather than biting their hand off as we should.
There's Talk that Windass is on Hulls radar for £500k aswell and Hodson is also attracting interest in England's lower leagues.
We need a cpl of full backs and Jamie Walker in and we should have good squad providing our Por-Tex players settle

4.) 13 Jul 2017 11:32:54
Read somewhere that Robbie neilson was wanting to sign keirnan for mk dons but we want 200k. Mk dons have offered 100k I would bite they're hand off just to get him out of the door.

5.) 13 Jul 2017 16:56:55
I know Robbie. Thought he had more brains than that!

6.) 13 Jul 2017 23:17:35
A will pay the rest myself for him to go

As far as I'm aware the loan signing winger Aaron Nemane plays on both Wings but predominantly in the Right. He is also out of contract at end of the season and has no appearances in the City 1st team.




23 Aug 2017 00:10:29
Rangers have signed winger Aaron Nemane from Man City on season long loan. 19 year old signed on loan under reccomendation of our new Director of Football who has spoken very highly of this boy. That may mean end to Jamie Walker deal until Bosman in January.




26 Jul 2017 21:13:10
Rangers beat Watford 2-1 in closed doors friendly. Candeias scored the opener and Waghorn the winner 2 minutes from time.
Caixinha played 4-4-2 again.
Small steps.


1.) 26 Jul 2017 22:10:56
Yes good result but performance and match fitness much more important than result. Just read Pedro's comments and think he is getting carried away a little bit with this and the Marseilles results in non competive matches. Competitive opener at Fir Park followed by 2 battles against Hearts and Hibs all need to be won Pedro.

Recall dropping 2 points against Hamilton in opener last season and we never recovered from it. Other than Dodoo inspired 3 nil victory at Pittodrie our performance in competitive matches had been extremely poor under the manager.

2.) 27 Jul 2017 00:02:46
From what I remember even the 3-0 against the sheep was only won due to them collapsing for 10 minutes

3.) 27 Jul 2017 06:51:12
Yep, 2 wins in friendlies (wins none the less) and Pedro is suddenly giving interviews again about the 'process'.
Wish him and the rest would just can it till we walk the walk!

4.) 27 Jul 2017 07:17:55
Just read Pedros interview he says 4-4-2 seems to be the formation the player are reacting best too and this is what everyone has been asking for.

That's him showing a willing too change his idea to suit the team more than could be said for mr bread before him.

Positive things going on hopefully this can unify the team.

I definitely wouldn't be getting carried away with a couple of semi decent results in friendlies.

For me the team should be


Tav Bruno cordoso Wallace

Candies (seems too be proving me wrong) jack Niko and dorrans

Herrera and miller

I don't think any the players being linked would make us much better maybe Naismith would maybe a replacement for miller for the next few years. I wouldn't burst the bank for walker one year on his contract definitely would pay a million for him 600k tops as again I don't think he's a must have.

5.) 27 Jul 2017 14:34:08
Fd what is it with you and dodoo. You say Pedro is getting carried away but you are getting carried away with a guy that has a terrible first touch and has done nothing. Are you his agent, his dad, his lover of just him because why else would someone back a donkey so much

6.) 28 Jul 2017 09:43:22
gary75, great post. We are all passionate supporters and entitled to the occasional outburst and contrary opinion, including Pedro. The boy Dodoo has massive potential and is a natural finisher. Think he played around 20 games last season most of which consisted of 20-30 minute appearances off the bench and scored 5 or 6 goals that gained valuable points. The quality of his strikes against Thistle and the sheep were top class and if Forrester had been less selfish and passed to Dodoo we would have at least drawn that game against Celtic. Fear he will be allowed to leave without being given the opportunity his talents deserve.

7.) 28 jul 2017 16:35:50
coz a guy wants to be positive and put positive thoughts into his players he is getting carried away

i will tell u lot one thing about our team its confidence is fragile as it was last year and i blame all the fans that gave them nothing but stick from day one.

our fans are up there with the most negative fans there is because of what we just went through for the past 6 years but its time to put that to bed, get on with things as they are and really get positive about our team as it looks a damm sight better than it has for the last 6 years



22 Jun 2017 00:18:18
Bruno Alves played full game V Russia tonight for Portugal and was part of a team who managed a clean sheet against the hosts in a 1-0 win via Ronaldo.




18 Jun 2017 15:26:57
Big Bruno Alves on bench for Mexico game in Confederations Cup.


1.) 18 Jun 2017 19:18:06
Didn't manage to watch the game, how did/ did Big Alves play?

2.) 18 Jun 2017 19:29:40
He was unused Substitute. The guy playing in his place from West Ham Jose Fonte made a few mistakes so big Bruno may be recalled for next match

3.) 18 Jun 2017 19:35:41
Never played

4.) 19 Jun 2017 02:08:34
How can you 'disagree' that Bruno Alves did not play against Mexico in the confederations cup?

Absolute wallopers on this

Queue the 'disagrees'

No he said that Allen is aware of who we want and what we need and he will leave it up to him to conclude these deals while he is away.
Iv no problem bringing in players on loan if they are going to improve our squad.
You either get young players with massive potential from top clubs normally on small wages like Hyndman, Toral etc or you get players who have fell out of favour at their club where you get to try before you buy again a win win situation for the club.
As posted yesterday we are still in for Walker and after watching Sky Sports today repeat what I told you yesterday that Hearts will appoint new boss in 24/ 48 hrs and he will decide if Walker is going, we will wait and see, I think it's 75/ 25 he will sell him to boost his own transfer kitty personally.

The guys out of contract at the end of the season, if he does well then I'm sure we will sign him permanently which will give us a few further down the line if he is sold.
I'd be hopeful Allen will know his ability inside out and a loan deal is less of a gamble if it doesn't work out.
It may or may not end the Walker ambitions in this window but I'm sure he can be secured on a pre contract in next window for free as he's too old for them to command a development fee.
It may even make our hand stronger when negotiating with Hearts now we are seemingly less desperate to get it over the line in this window.
We all said we are crying out for more options out wide so personally I'm pleased to have added to our squad and will wait until Iv seen him play a few times before deciding how good or bad the signing is.
A few sources online indicated he's a RW who can play on the left, from what I saw in the You tube clips it appears he plays more on the Left.

After watching yesterday's game as much as i'd love Walker to add to sign I feel we desperately need more depth in full back area. Wallace wears his heart on his sleeve but for me he's too lethargic in possession, gets high up the pitch on the overlap then just pauses or more often than not plays the ball backwards again.
Playing the better sides there's nothing wrong with him sitting more often but when we play teams who are sitting deep in their own half we need our full backs to get to byline and get crosses in box or cut backs to the edge of box, having competition in there would benefit us I feel.

He's back up for Wallace at the moment who has the odd injury here and there throughout the season. Obviously if he does well in training or league cup/ bounce games he might start before Waldo in time .

Burts injured just now mate, maybe when fit he will go to another Scottish club or will benefit from playing Elite Youth Clubs, I have high hopes for him in particular he looks a class act in the Youth games Iv watched.

It looks more like training kit. We already announced we would be using last seasons home kit for 2017/ 18 which is registered with league and was with UEFA.
We announced an away and potentially 3rd kit would be available in 4-6 weeks (6-8 weeks ago)
The new Away top was worn V Ross County and will be available to buy in a few weeks.
I'm not convinced the new blue or white kits are real or going to be our 3rd or new home kits. I hope not aswell they both look like cheap crap

Pena on the left? Are u for real? Miller is still useful and arguably may be better from the bench. I'd rather get Rossiter some game time before Krancjar who always looks shattered. As for Pena I'm desperate for him to get match fit but he's not got great pace and wouldn't expect him to track back much without the ball so LW/ LM wouldn't suit him. He is more of a 10 or CM mate

Other than the European disaster that came when we had 50/ 50 of Warbs and Caixinhas squad I have been impressed this season. We followed up a credible and deserved draw with Marseille with away wins to Premiership Watford and Wednesday 1 of Championships better sides with a good away win at Motherwell and a thrashing of Dunfermline who won on penalties V Hearts at Tynecastle before beating Inverness after they played us.
Until the red card we were the better side against a decent Hibs side, we had the best chances and had the ref done his job we would have hammered them with 10 men. I'm sure we will beat Hearts and continue to improve.
The bulk of his signings are already playing well and Pena hasn't kicked a ball really so can hardly be fairly judged and is now on individual training regime to get him up to speed, Dalcio is a loan player for cover and again hasn't played much and Herrara has played well as far as I'm concerned.
It's early to judge but all I will say is I feel far more confident of scoring goals and creating chances now and more confident defending corners so let's wait and see how we do true blues
