Joleon lescott being released by villa, that would be a very good guy to shore up the defense, night be too costly, but had a good career and just may fancy going for Europe with Rangers, ? May just be a target.

The guy is rubbish, have to do better than that.
3.) 07 Aug 2016 13:43:48
Read DK statement- we aren't signing anyone else, especially someone on a big wage.
Of course, there will be money to spend in January - another lie.
4.) 07 Aug 2016 18:09:06
Thought he said he would be very surprised if we didn't get someone else in before the end of the month?
Then went on to say we will also look at our position in January?
5.) 07 Aug 2016 20:03:58
the guy is far better than wht we have not scared to tackle and can win a ball in the air unlike the 💩we have the now.
6.) 07 Aug 2016 14:49:06
I heard lesscotts name mentioned to me on Friday from a guy on the building site I work on, but I can't see that happening with wages again being the main obstacle plus he can be a bit of a bomb scare at times, but he could probably do a job for us.

This will upset some people, But warbs should be looking at a couple of former heroes, in particular Davis and especially greegs, before anyone raves on about leaving us, try to get the big picture, these were young men with glorious careers ahead.
They had mortgages much bigger than yours, school fees, cars to pay fir, and other outgoings, they also had advisors who would have disowned them i'd they hadn't gone immediately. I am true blue, I believe greegs is too, and Davis and Naismith, even after his ill advised statements, I'm sorry he ever got involved in the tv thing, greegs would send shock waves through the green side.
1.) 14 Jun 2016 14:35:27
Davis, yeah sure. Naismith, no.
2.) 14 Jun 2016 14:36:26
davis i would welcome back in a heart beat as he was the only one who made sure that we got a fee of sorts but doubt we could afford him,
mcgregor, naismith, lafferty. not a chance.
3.) 14 Jun 2016 14:13:11
Tomtom12 steve davis left us with his head held high mate, imho.
4.) 14 Jun 2016 15:51:40
Only Davis for me but I doubt he'd leave the EPL again, he starts most games.
Why the need for old players anyway, I'm excited about new potential players recruited by Mcparland, not rehashing the past. The football played when all they players mentioned were here was awful to watch anyway (albeit successful) , we've moved on and so have they.
McKay, Forrester and Rossiter are our future now, and believe me it will be a lot better to watch once it all clicks. I also have a funny feeling when we do eventually get to Europe it will suit our new system to a tee.
5.) 14 Jun 2016 17:42:02
Rangers could not afford Steven Davis, he has done really well at Southampton and is now very highly regarded down south, unfortunately for us.
6.) 14 Jun 2016 17:45:44
I think we need to look forward and never back. Richard Gough and Trevor Steven aside, very few players come back to a club and are successful.
As much I would love to see Davis et al back, I think we need to move forward with the Young Team and a few select old heads.
Greegs is arguably passed it, Naismith's second touch is a tackle and Girraferty, well I will leave it at that.
7.) 15 Jun 2016 02:06:13
One or two players that I'd like to see back at Ibrox but due to wages/ fee it ain't going to happen Davis being one, but got a GUT feelin that if we brought Fleck back he would fulfill his potential under Warbs and become the player we all thought he was going to be at the team he was supposed to do it with! I know we've got players in the midfield but we are still waiting on the Krankjar deal to materialise, dunno what it is but think the guy would excel with Warbs and co, I read that he is comin to end of contract at Coventry and although they want to keep him and think he was voted their player of the season he's stalling! Just my opinion on a player returning and one that's a real possibility, telling ye the boy would turn good, mixing the fact that he'd be learning a few things from Barton too and it sounds even better! ;)
06 Mar 2016 09:57:15
Hands uo for me today, wonderful performance from the Rangers yesterday, excellent, still bit concerned bout defense at higher level but football was fantastic, so good to watch Gers turn it on again, well done WnW, would just love to see tge teddy beats at Hampden putting on a performance again
1.) 06 Mar 2016 10:07:07
Well said. Credit where it's due.
2.) 06 Mar 2016 11:10:56
Same from me, I have been a critic of wilson and mckay but as I said yesterday they were both class. I have also had a debate with a few regarding a gap between celtic hearts aberdeen and us. After yesterday's result and performance against one of the better Spl sides I have to hold my hands up and say that we should not be worried about hearts or aberdeen because if we play like that we would destroy them and would likely beat celtic too in their present state. I still however standby what I said regarding getting 5 better quality players in the summer because let's be honest celtic will have a new manager next season and will probably throw a lot of money to try and stave off our challenge. I have no doubt that warbs will get what he wants and already knows who he wants. Credit where credit is due my hands are up and acknowledge that I got a couple of shouts wrong in respect of where our team is with regards to competing at the top. Was buzzing leaving ibrox yesterday.
3.) 06 Mar 2016 14:32:04
I would rather be in our situation than Celtics. We have a great manager and a good squad needing a few additions. Celtic have a terrible manager and they're squad is over loaded with mediocre players that they don't need. If we hit the ground running next season we could easily be in with a shout with winning that league next year. Be interesting to see the quality of player we bring in. Can't wait.
03 Mar 2016 23:31:52
Anyone watching question time ?
Jermaine jenas, ===pathetic, what is he doing on a political debate. ? , embarrassing, a football player on a political forum with serious issues, his only input was " if taxes have to go up to pay for things then I agree"why is there a football player on question time. ?
1.) 04 Mar 2016 00:44:30
Taxing issues debate? Well I never!
2.) 04 Mar 2016 08:19:32
Some of thw footballers are pretty clever though i doubt a 3% rise in taxes is going to affect his running of his ferrari to the normal family on a normal wage trying to keep a roof over there head and feed them, i understand that many do good work within communities but at the end of the day they still get to go back to there mansions on an astronomical wage especially down south.
3.) 04 Mar 2016 09:48:51
Sorry tom I thought he was very articulate and knew what he was talking about', just because he was a footballer doesn't mean he's stupid, I quite like jermaine he's a very good pundit on motd.
03 Mar 2016 22:30:16
Guys, some may have gotten the impression I don't think Rangers are good enough to challenge next season, they would be correct, but no, one should ever be confused that I am a Rangers fan from the tip of my toes to the hair on my head, I am very concerned that some are believing we are ready to challenge Septic, we aren't, we are a good footballing side, when we are at it, but we must remember they have a lot of cash to spend and will have a new manager next season, we must really be aware of that, I have always supported Mr King, from day one I knew he was the one man we should trust, I think he has done us proud, , just lets
cal down now, let us win the leag and enjoya that experience, and not declare ourselves as champions of the world, let zmr king and.
1.) 03 Mar 2016 23:39:07
I agree, like you I believe that we are in a great place. Our club has been transformed from top to bottom, we have a board I think we can trust, a manager who is doing a great job and has dignity and composure beyond belief. The youth and scouting set up is class. The appointment of frank mcparland was a major coup and the team is playing great football. It certainly won't be as easy as some think it will be next season. However with the right signings then there is no reason why we can't be up there challenging. Mw will already know who he wants I'm sure. It is exciting times and can't wait for saturday's game. Celtic will probably have a new manager and will spend to try and keep us away from them. Its going to be a good fight, won't be easy though.
2.) 03 Mar 2016 23:16:10
Tomtom12: I agree, I am a positive poster but Celtic will have to make changes next season ad they will be fired up, as we will be also.
3.) 04 Mar 2016 01:02:30
As the Boss has said from the very beginning with no disrespect. It's about Rangers no one else. Let them come. At the end of the season we can be judged. Also said, we'll play 433. We'll never take the ball to the corner. All true The media hate it. I love it.
4.) 04 Mar 2016 09:34:40
Why would we not be challenging for the league?
Both DK and MW say there will be investment and the quality in Scotland is VERY low level. Tomorrow will give us a heads up of how much needs to be done, but I am sure the club management are aware that challenging is not out of reach.
I will risk a couple of quid on us winning the league.
5.) 04 Mar 2016 09:53:23
My honest opinion is we are not yet ready but this summer is massive for our club, it's all going to come down to what players we sign and who we let go.
6.) 04 Mar 2016 10:01:20
Tomtom12,you may find this strange but I 100% agree with your post here mate! I share your view that we are currently without doubt going in the right direction and have got a very good management team in warburton and weir who have a longterm project for our football club and are doing a tremendous job thus far, I do think we'll need to consolidate next season and trust warbs in player recruitment for our first year back in the big league, although I really do think we'll do well I'm also a realist and think even allowing for the demands of our great football club I think a top 3 finish in our first season back in the big time would be a good season, although I'm not for a minute saying glasgow rangers as an institution shouldn't be aiming to win the league because at this club this should always be our goal! What do we think bears, what would be a realistic finish in your eyes?
7.) 04 Mar 2016 12:05:45
you play it safe and say top 4, selik, hearts and the sheep, but correct me if I am wrong, hearts are 3rd and played in the championship last year. Did hearts have as good a team as us NO, did they play as good a brand of football as us NO, did they have as good a manager as us, NO, and if DK splashes the cash did they have the same level of investment as us, NO, but despite this in their first year back it looks like they going to finish 3rd.
Selik are getting worse, we are getting better so let's be honest, why can't we win league if we invest in the summer, why are we supposedly so far behind? Selik have a bunch of overpaid foreigners and a terrible manager.
we have built young hungry team, with a winning mentality, and that goes along way, add in some quality and experience next year and we are to a good thing.
All you doubters keep doubting, but I am a forward thinker and a optimist and I do not see why the mighty Glasgow rangers cannot go and turn that who premiership upside down and win it next year!
! and bring on Dundee on Saturday, should be an epic match between both!
8.) 04 Mar 2016 18:37:28
Great post m3lvo. I'm the same as you. We will invest and strengthen and I cannot for the life of me see anything to fear over the other side of the city. If Deila wins the league
I think they will stick with him. That would be their undoing as I don't think he can pick his nose much less a team. Don't get me wrong with the squad they have they should be doing much better but a 25 point gap as an earlier poster said - not a chance!
01 Sep 2016 04:27:46
Cant understand why you wouldn't want Dave King 👑 to attack fatty? I'm delighted with the man, and I'll support him and his board all the way, King 👑 has taken the rats on in court, and not lost, he is standing up for Rangers, and I worship the guys, you must remember he and other people begged The real cause of our problems Murray not to sell to the rat,? You forget that? He warned us all that Murray was selling to anyone who came from the gutter, and along with Alastair Johnston, and a few others was desperate to save our club, he didn't have to come back from his luxurious life in SA, he loves Rangers, always has, Richard Gough is one of our greatest ever captains, and always supported King 👑, thatl do for me, and if you think he's stealing from Rangers? Then you are very wrong.
24 Aug 2016 22:48:56
Wee johnny smith, and Archie broon?
20 Aug 2016 15:31:01
Wondered why the players were training in t-shirts when I seen the piece on senderos, ?
08 Aug 2016 17:07:42
The only 4 who done Rangers wrong were the 3 who did the interview, , none of us have been in their position, the were young talented players with a lucrative career ahead, they aldo had huge mortgages, bills, etc, they're outgoings will have been far more than ours, that's the lifestyle young players lead, not saying they were right, but they knew a lot more than we did, and they knew that any money coming in was going straight into the gangsters accounts, anyone who doesn't realise this is not interested in truth, just what they think, having never had this sort of choice to make.
06 Aug 2016 10:43:02
Doubt it very much, but I've just seen joleon lescott being released by villa, too costly. Maybe, but ideal player
25 Aug 2016 23:08:27
We desperately need new investment, from china or something like that, what an opportunity for a rich consortium? A massive fan base, opportunity for cl, big name, great stadium and history, and a possibility of playing in English premier league someday? Maybe a pipedream? I know, but I think it could happen,
24 Aug 2016 20:13:48
Me too, I have no doubt someone else is being spoken too, , maybe both will be signed, ? I hope so
24 Aug 2016 19:53:30
I would, but maybe he hates Rangers? ; don't understand why celtic never tie him up, something smells rotten, and it ain't his dodge baby caring skills, as advertised by that great celtic fan, michelle bigtits, , seems a dangerous player to me
07 Aug 2016 20:02:30
Who will do that damage? He takes off 3players at a time, how can they gel? Why was Dodoo on the bench? Why start with Kenny? A superb grafter, but a dreadful finished, why play hill? Who is finished, so is Niko, btw, why can't he see we have no defence. ? What the fxck is happening? We could be 10 points behind in weeks, he, s had a long time to get a defense together, and we got a retiree from qpr? I know how difficult it is to get players in, but do you honestly think sellik are concerned. ? Not a chance, they know we are weak, full of wee boys playing street football. And a couple of finished players getting a lucky break, its awful taking 3 men off, its awful not playing the talent we bought, ie, MOH, JD, Forry, and playing guys who are done, Kenny couldn't use his left leg for standing on! keirnan is a donkey, as everyone but the manager knows and Waldo and tav are not good full backs, great against wheelie bins, but easy pickings for battle hardened teams, does nobody worry bout this, ?
06 Aug 2016 15:29:17
No mate, not over reacting, it is painfully obvious that warbs doesn't know how to defend, nor put players in their position and let them play, taking 3 players off in a short period is nonsense, particularly when you don't actually have a plan? Then a player goes down injured? What now. ? Nothing, that what, players playing all over the park, nobody knows what they should be doing, why in gods earth was the forward line not Ohalleron, dodoo, and Forrester ? I would put my fortune on that line scoring goals, again mckay couldn't get a cross in or beat the last man, again Kenny was starved of the balll, although he is a very poor finisher, again the opposite side knew how to play, its easy for them, it will be worse with better teams, not overreacting, just honest, playing without a team cohesion and system. Maybe we will struggle to stay in touch over next few weeks.
