With Gerrard admitting Candeias exit is imminent he suggested we would be bringing in a replacement.
Any ideas who we could bring in guys?

1.) 21 Jul 2019 22:45:06

2.) 22 Jul 2019 10:56:03
kent too expensive and dosen't play in same position as candyman.

3.) 22 Jul 2019 11:35:45
Ojo on the right Kent on the left. both van play either flank, Kent is aw right foot. Ojos aw left lol.

4.) 22 Jul 2019 12:10:56
Of he course he can 6counties. Did you not watch kent arfield etc interchange between positions towards the end of last season😂👍.

5.) 22 Jul 2019 17:27:31
Coldo ojo right Jones left hardly spend millions on kent.

6.) 22 Jul 2019 17:45:58
It’s Gareth Bale. Seen some stuff on YouTube, he looks alright👍.

7.) 22 Jul 2019 17:52:26
Can’t see Kent coming back.

8.) 22 Jul 2019 19:25:06
6 counties what? You said kent can't play on the right and you are wrong. Why are you telling me that ojo plays on the right and jones plays on the left? Kent is better than both👍.

9.) 23 Jul 2019 00:46:29
Bryan1978 kent was two footed he used to take corners with left or right foot 😂😂 ojo is all left foot though.



20 Jul 2019 12:50:39
Not sure how much truth is in this as we have just sent McCrorie and Rossiter our on loan ourselves to trim CM a bit but heard off a few people that Billy Gilmour from Chelsea returning on a season loan is being explored by the club.
Don't shoot the messenger just passing on what Iv heard.
Did notice he was left out their squad to Japan now some of their 1st team players have returned so probably would be available.

1.) 20 Jul 2019 13:20:29
I heard this a while ago but don't see it happening.

2.) 20 Jul 2019 16:00:53
Would love to see it, but I think Lampard rates him highly.

3.) 20 Jul 2019 23:03:50
Gilmour is likely to hit the first team in Chelsea this season. He’s having a great preseason.

4.) 20 Jul 2019 23:04:37
Theglasgowranger hope your right mate.

5.) 21 Jul 2019 18:47:29
GAFG gilmour is a kid still.

6.) 21 Jul 2019 22:20:51
He might only be 18 but he trained with Rangers 1st team when he was 15, he was promoted to Chelsea 23s squad last year and was 1 of their best players.
He’s also played for Scotland U21’s a good few times as well.
I think he would be better than Greg Docherty and a good addition to our squad if we were to bring him in on loan.

7.) 22 Jul 2019 09:24:19
Gilmour chose to go, why develop him for Chelsea.
We have our own players.



04 Jul 2019 13:00:58
Heard a rumour that Benitez was looking to sign Tav for his new Chinese mob for £12m.
As far as I'm aware they are only allowed 3 European players and already have 3 on the books.
The guy said Tav to be offered £55k per week in wages as well.
Probably all usual bull at this time of year just sharing what was said.

1.) 05 Jul 2019 12:39:47
If i was steve G i would be putting a price tag of £25+M on both tav and morelos as if celtic get that for mcgregor or KT them we definitely deserve that for our top players.



22 Jun 2019 15:59:41
Aribo set for medical over the weekend, all going well will jet off to Portugal with rest of squad.
We are just looking for 1 CH now and the possible loan of Kent to conclude our business unless there's any movement on Alfredo.
Our squad is looking strong with variety of options in every position.
Grezda, Holt etc more than likely exiting with Rossiter, McCrorie or Docherty likely to depart at least on loan would expect us to keep at least 1 possibly 2 of they 3 to compliment Jack, Davis, Aribo and Kamara in the engine room.

1.) 22 Jun 2019 17:07:04
Would like more options up top . Morelos can't be trusted not to lose the plot at any given moment . Think the season is too much for defoe to play every game and lafferty isn't cutting it .

2.) 22 Jun 2019 17:11:26
Agreed we really need another striker unless Gerrard is planning to use Hardie the upcoming season.

3.) 22 Jun 2019 17:17:36
Jak Rudden is the man for that, why not?

4.) 22 Jun 2019 18:02:58
Apparently Charlton want young doc
On loan as he is rated higher than
We def need another striker
Or do we trust the buffalo.

5.) 22 Jun 2019 18:32:23
Deffo another first choice striker. And a 4th CH either internal promotion or a challenger from outside.

6.) 22 Jun 2019 18:48:10
We need Left back more than a CB.

7.) 22 Jun 2019 18:49:33
I think it would be wise for Morelos to stay for another season. Hopefully improving his temperament and banging in another 30 goals!

8.) 22 Jun 2019 18:52:45
Stiff competition for 3 places now that's for sure. Best 5 mids arfield jack davis kamara aribo. Got a sneaky feelin that Kamaras head would be easily turned if likes of brighton did come in with offer. Who your best 3 lads? Jack arfield and kamara for me. (Until i have actually seen aribo playing)

9.) 22 Jun 2019 19:04:21
I think or at least hope that morelos has learnt his lesson. Not making the Columbia squad would have hurt him, and in his bday post on Instagram he mentioned lessons learned. Hopefully he means no more red cards.

10.) 22 Jun 2019 21:07:20
Folks. The last 7 games of the season were played with Davis, Arfield, Jack and Kamarra. 442. Kent playing in with Defoe. I expect the same next year.



02 May 2019 07:43:38
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.

01 Jul 2019 21:09:14
Morelos sold for a tasty fee, all fringe players sold or moved out on loan or mutual terminations, Kent bought, Skertal and Sturridge on FREE transfer Job done. if Carlsberg did transfer windows.

1.) 01 Jul 2019 21:54:13
I'd keep Morelos before I signed sturridge.

2.) 01 Jul 2019 22:06:07
Sturridge can't replace Morelos. He has been hampered with injuries and for that reason is a greater liability than Morelos imo.

Dont see the need for another senior centre half, particularly Skrtel who would demand a hefty wage. Goldson and Katic have to be our first choice pairing at centre half and the biy Edmundson is there for cover. McCrorie can play centre half too if needed in a crisis.

Kent is a must and although it looks like the only option for us is another loan, if we do get a large fee for Morelos I'd re invest it in Kent on a permanent deal and Defoe can be our main man next season. Would Gerrard be comfortable with Defoe and Stewart as our main striking options with Rudden, Hardie and Dallas there too? he's spoke about the boys from the academy being in contention for a first team push so maybe this season we will see some youngsters given the chance.

3.) 01 Jul 2019 22:53:38
I wouldnt want Alfredo to leave but think we play better as a team with Defoe leading the line. We won 8 games in a row when Alfredo was suspended for 3 games then a further 3 games but still missed the next 2 due to teams form.
The money raised to be spent on a permanent deal for Kent.
Sturridge remained injury free all of last season and as an impact striker from the bench would be great.

Stewart can do a job there aswell as covering Arfield in the 10 role.
We need 4 CBs yes I agree Katic and Goldson were best pairing last season but if 1 or both get injured we cant rely on Edmundson and McCrorie to fill in for games in Europe, or away to Hibs, Hearts, Celtic or Aberdeen etc. They might be good enough but McCrorie is a CM now and having only 1 natural CB as cover is too risky.

4.) 02 Jul 2019 00:12:06
Hardie off to Blackpool, rudden no where near good enough. What is it with folk harping on about youth all the time. If there good enough they will play. The ones you mentioned are not!

5.) 02 Jul 2019 07:16:00
If carlsberg done transfer windows there is no way i would be wasting 10mill plus on kent. he's just not worth the money.

6.) 02 Jul 2019 07:22:21
Sturridge is a no go! The injuries are all trivial he has and puts him out for months at a time and not many clubs will be in for him!

7.) 02 Jul 2019 08:21:31
We will sign another CH and as for rudden and dallas as cover, sorry but they are not ready yet, would love to be wrong but they haven't had a sniff of the first team yet. Not keen on Sturridge tbh, bags of ability but hasn't had a good run of games since Brendan left liverpool.

8.) 02 Jul 2019 22:52:08
Talking crap sell buffalo fur sturrage OMG .



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.



09 May 2018 21:54:07
With Rangers linked with various ex players quite frequently, Who if we could only sign 1 would you like to sign most:

Vlad Weiss
Steve Davis
Kyle Lafferty
Charlie Adam
Steven Naismith
Alan Hutton

Can you run a poll please Ed?

The answer I and most fans thought obvious is the answer. What we wouldn’t give to have wee Steve Davis back but for now me must prevail with holt and Halliday etc.

2.) 09 May 2018 23:00:04
Steve davis for me and give him the captains armband while your at it.

3.) 09 May 2018 23:06:37

6.) 10 May 2018 11:03:21
Southend ranger you must be seriously under rating the quality of Steve Davis. Aim higher than him? You're dreaming

He might only be 18 but he trained with Rangers 1st team when he was 15, he was promoted to Chelsea 23s squad last year and was 1 of their best players.
He’s also played for Scotland U21’s a good few times as well.
I think he would be better than Greg Docherty and a good addition to our squad if we were to bring him in on loan.

Reports today suggesting Eintracht Frankfurt May be ready to test Rangers resolve with a bid for Alfredo. They sold both their Strikers for £62m and £45m not sure if it was pounds or euros, regardless they should have somewhere in excess of £100m to replace them.

Obviously they will bank some cash, and regenerate other areas of squad etc aswell.
I think £15m is a realistic fee for Morelos and agree that Rangers won’t sell him for less than £10m minimum with add ins and sell on clauses as he’s worth more to our squad keeping him.
Like Gerrard I’d rather we sold him sooner rather than later or not at all.

Candeias final ball is awful at times but other than that he is good at covering Tav when he gets forward and work his socks off with the high press forcing mistakes and turnovering possession for us.
With Ojo being utilised in both the 10 and on the Right I would have Candeias in squad all day long.

Would be less concerned if Murphy or Hastie were sold or loaned out (Hastie) as we have Jones and potentially Kent on left but what happens if Ojo looses form or gets injured? I know Hastie played on RM and cut in on left for Motherwell but I prefer DC and unless we have another RM/ W targeted as a replacement I wouldn’t sanction deal.
He is 31 and on last year of contract so no chance we would get £2m try £500k.

Yeah I’d imagine we have scouts at big matches involving players from areas of Europe where we can potentially afford any targets we might see.
We dipped into Croatian market for Katic who was a great signing, Barisic who is a decent signing and Grezda who was a poor signing.
All were relatively cheap and we would make a profit on 2/3 if we were to sell in this window.

I’d imagine big games involving Scandinavian clubs would also have scouts attend as they do well in our league and again are affordable.
Of course we might have a specific target from that game but you need to do the groundwork I. Certain games to see if anyone catches your eye.

Well said Blue 89!
I love a good rumour, obviously we all poke holes in them when they appear far fetched or at least unrealistic but don’t understand when people totally disregard rumours that are plausible.

Anyway loving the 8 pieces (soon) of the jigsaw Stevie G has added already, and the timely fashion so hopefully they will have gelled a fair bit for the later qualifiers providing we are in them and our opening few games in league.

Wolves are a decent side with some good players and would be slight favourites if we drew them
We are 2-3 weeks ahead of them in terms of Pre Season fitness and have the experience of playing in Europe and how to set up especially away from home.
Add on the underdogs tag and shifting the pressure onto them, there’s also the fact many English sides see this competition as a hinderance to their league campaign in the early rounds.
like I said they would be slight favourites IMO but only just.

We got 21k last week for lowly opposition then 25k on same weekend as Trnsmt, the Glasgow fayre and when a good few thousand go to Belfast.
To put it into perspective we filled half our stadium.
Across the City they got 15k a quarter of their stadium and I don’t think they had many over in Belfast either 😂.

I agree, the training gear and the 3 kits last year and 2/3 this year are nice.
Only problem I have is the sizing, I bought the orange away in Large and it was huge and wide.
Bought the home top in medium and same with training too and they were perfect fit.

This season I decided to stick with the medium for my new home top and it was smaller than last years so a bit tight, no Iv no put on lots of weight just a bit strange.

celtic will be involved in group stages at same time in 1 of the Euro comps prob so no disadvantage also being involved. Helps us to attract better players doing well in Europe and gives Gerrard an opportunity to give more players more game time.
We want 2 players for every position but when majority are fit its difficult finding game time for the majority. Being in Europe gives us that opportunity and keeps the fringe players hungry.
It also improves Coefficient making it easier to qualify for group stages of both comps in future.
