I see Southampton are watching Arfield and are looking to make an offer, wish they’d take themselves off, doubt if he’d go to strugglers unless the contract offered was too good to turn down.


1.) 10 Apr 2019 18:11:34
Do not think he will go. He loves the club. Only silly money for Rangers and a HUGE increase in his salary might tempt him. However he is here to STOP 9 / 10 in a row. Think he is a BIG part of SG set up for next year.

2.) 10 Apr 2019 18:13:53
No they are not.

3.) 11 Apr 2019 07:40:21
I have my doubts that Arfield will leave, although I could be wrong. He has a young family and my understanding is he wants to finish his career up here.



01 Apr 2019 12:58:19
See Rangers are speaking to Kilmarnock goalkeepers agents “ Bachman “ I believe his name is, other keepers must be going? Except Shagger of course .


1.) 01 Apr 2019 18:15:46
Foderingham can't be happy being no 2 and McGregor won't play for ever alnwick never made the grade.

2.) 02 Apr 2019 09:08:54
Decent big keeper.

3.) 02 Apr 2019 09:25:08
Wes will move in Summer on £10k a week too much for a number 2. We will bring in cheaper replacement on around £5k tips saving £250k a season.
I know we have good young keepers coming through and purchased the lower league keeper in last window so might not even buy another unless the boy from down south isn’t good enough.

4.) 02 Apr 2019 12:24:51
I like Bachman, he'd be a good backup to replace Fod.

5.) 03 Apr 2019 15:00:10
McCrorie is expected to take over from shagger, won't be next year though so we def need cover as Fod will be away.

6.) 03 Apr 2019 17:36:36
Prefer mccrorie centre mid myself.



31 Mar 2019 09:53:19
So Hastie hasn’t signed yet? And Rangers are looking to sign Greg Stewart from Birmingham? Both these stories came from the same media outlet, last week Hastie had signed now Brentford are in for him, thus the offer of £15,000 per week, hard to believe anything until one sees him with the flag above his head.


1.) 01 Apr 2019 08:44:57
I have never ever belive a story or rumour about any signing etc untill there pictured at ibrox holding a scarf above there head or rangers announce the signing

Never have done and never will.

2.) 02 Apr 2019 12:26:41
This might not be the best site for you then Tryanikian😂.



18 Dec 2018 10:36:17
Is it true that Rangers are trying to sigh Shinnie of Aberdeen?


1.) 18 Dec 2018 10:54:03
Doubt it.

2.) 18 Dec 2018 11:26:12
The reason I ask, is I know nothing about the guy and I read it in a Sunday paper over here in NI.

3.) 18 Dec 2018 12:50:34
He wouldn't be the worst signing we have made, but it would just be another defensive style midfielder like Jack or McCrorie. He can play RB though so its always good to have a utility man like Halliday.

4.) 18 Dec 2018 14:07:28
Not good enough, we need players now who improve our starting 11, big work was done in the summer but I’d like at least one player for our best starting 11 in January with a number 10 the priority, a striker on loan would be good business also and I think we will get both due the 2 cancelled loans this week.

5.) 18 Dec 2018 15:26:33
Good player, i remember we signed Ryan Jack and a lot fans says he wasnt good enough, turned out to be one of our most consistant players.

6.) 18 Dec 2018 17:12:36
Strong rumours up in sheepland that shinnie is going to sign on a free in the summer.

7.) 18 Dec 2018 23:15:36
Heard him on the radio this morning. Said he was keeping his options open. Non committal on a new deal with the sheep.



12 Dec 2018 13:21:09
See Rangers are looking at a 28 yr old Greek international defender, can’t pronounce his name, from an Athens club.


1.) 12 Dec 2018 14:13:29
You don't need to pronounce a name when you write it down lol.

2.) 12 Dec 2018 15:34:07
Rarely do I enjoy seeing lol written. But in this case, lol.

3.) 12 Dec 2018 15:37:41
Brilliant 😂.

4.) 12 Dec 2018 16:50:16
Thanks lads, spell it, well it is a banter page.

5.) 12 Dec 2018 17:20:02
Well taken Ulstrrman.

6.) 12 Dec 2018 21:05:11
I made a mistake and the guys picked it up, this is just fun between supporters, and there’s an old saying,
“ what goes around comes around “. There’s one thing about this site if your easily embarrassed, don’t come on
😂 I just enjoy the craic like yourself. And before they say
I’ve spelt craic wrong, look it up .

7.) 13 Dec 2018 09:32:28
I get you Ulsterman, enjoying a bit craic and enjoying a bit crack are two very different things 😂.

8.) 13 Dec 2018 18:01:43
I did say in October and November we were scouting a Greek player at Athens.

Looking at that guy Polster reminds me of a young John Greig ( looks only ) there’ll only be one John Greig, what a player he was, I only say him in his latter years, but even then he was fabulous, has anyone on the site seen him in his heydays?




20 Apr 2019 13:08:31
Whoever says Davis is finished? Should think again.


1.) 20 Apr 2019 15:48:13
Ulsterman - Arthur D was the poster who kept putting Davis down, for whatever reason. Not sure of the guys thought process tbh.

Thought, Davis, Kamara, Jack and Arfield were really good, to name but a few. We could have scored double figures on another day. I will give Souttar the benefit of the doubt, from what I saw he needs it.

2.) 20 Apr 2019 16:59:38
Thought we played good today and dominated them. I know Kent is a good player, but are we missing him? In his place Arfield has blossomed and is on top form in that role, and who said we couldn't play Defoe on his own!

3.) 20 Apr 2019 17:35:51
All our midfield were superb in particular today and a special mention to big katic, who was terrific. My motm was ryan jack, as he was my pick, from a really good team performance.

4.) 20 Apr 2019 18:24:06
Steven Davis is still a good player and I've no problem signing him up for next season. This season though, we got him in January and its taken him till April to show any kind of form. I know he was lacking match fitness but we signed Davis and Defoe for a chance at the title. We were level on points with c*ltic when we signed them.

5.) 20 Apr 2019 19:44:27
I don’t think Davis is good enough either and I don’t think he is the player we need if we are to challenge Celtic.

6.) 20 Apr 2019 19:53:36
Not now Cato

My thought process is simple and as you don’t seem to understand it I will try and simplify it for you

Davis is not the player he used to be and couldn’t get a look in in a truly awful Southampton side

I don’t think he is the type of player we need if we want to win the league and compete with them

I would much rather give Docherty a go in the first team next season as I think he has more to offer

Of course only my opinion but I hope that clears it up for you?

7.) 20 Apr 2019 20:54:07
AD - absolute nonsense. I do not know why you do not like Davis, but you are not basing it on fact. A lot of players do not get games in teams for various reasons - manager does not like them; face does not fit; style of play does not fit, or to many players vying for the same position. Davis has been great when he has played for Southampton.

If I mind right your original post stated that he would not have sell on value - but he is here for a specific reason - to stop celtic getting to 9 and then 10 in a row, and to be honest he will retire when he leaves Rangers - the club he loves.

Ypu next post stated that he was not good enough to play for Rangers - if he was half the player he, he would still be good enough to play for us. I wonder if you have ever seen him play? He is the captain of Northern Ireland Football Team. In his last game for Northern Ireland he gave a masterclass in football and was the toast of the country. He has now played almost two full games for Rangers and in each of them he has played tremendously well - I don't think you could have saw him play or to be truthful you do not understand what good play is. Do not know who got man of the match today but would not be surprised if he received it.

8.) 20 Apr 2019 21:15:52
Not now Cato

Yes I have seen him play and I’ve probably been to more games than you have both at home and abroad so don’t try and be clever it doesn’t suit you. Unfortunately you seem to be the type of person who doesn’t like anyone disagreeing with you. You don’t half talk nonsense the toast of Northern Ireland? Where do you get stuff like that. I have given my reasons why he isn’t good enough if we are to challenge Celtic and signing a guy who is in the mid thirties and past his best isn’t the answer. I am entitled to my opinion just as you are and entitled to make it without people like you trying to be clever.

9.) 20 Apr 2019 21:28:42
Bit out of order there Cato. Davis has played well last 2 games but it has been against 2 dreadful sides in Motherwell and Hearts. Let’s see how he performs in the next 3 games against Aberdeen, Hibs and Celtic. I would like to see him dominate the Celtic midfield but I’m not convinced he can do that anymore. As for Northern Ireland you have to remember they played Belarus and only won 2-1. Belarus are hardly world beaters. Let’s see how he does against Netherlands and Germany before making him king of Northern Ireland. Everyone has an opinion and there is no need to be nasty to each other if we don’t agree with certain views. Let’s hope we get it right next season and can stop them winning the league again.

10.) 20 Apr 2019 22:10:16
NNC - you are quite right Davis is playing very well for Rangers and has got his fitness back anyone who understands football can see that. Not his fault who he plays against. He has been a stalwart for NI.

Never ever understood anyone who says you are too old to play same as you are never too young - all depends on how good you are.

Give up Arther D your arguments don't add up.

11.) 20 Apr 2019 22:13:00
Afthur D - whit are you oan about? Davis has been great. Smashing wee player.

12.) 20 Apr 2019 22:18:15
According to some on here - Messi aged 31 and Ronaldo aged 34 are too old lol.

13.) 20 Apr 2019 22:34:08
Bindo - I have not been nasty I have honest. There is a difference.

14.) 20 Apr 2019 23:59:41
I think davis has been a stand out in the last two games, I agree that there are bigger tests to come for him but fir park and tynecastle are hard places to go and to be fair davis bossed both games👍.

15.) 21 Apr 2019 07:46:56

Your comparing Davis to Messi and Ronaldo now? 2 of the greatest players ever to play football? Ridiculous.

16.) 21 Apr 2019 07:48:00

Your spot on Davis HAS BEEN (past tense) great.

17.) 21 Apr 2019 07:48:55
True blue

How do you work that out? My comments are my opinion which I am entitled to give so tell me how they don’t add up?

18.) 21 Apr 2019 08:34:14
Not now Cato

Come on asking someone if they have ever seen him play was being a bit naughty. I don’t agree with a lot of things he says however I don’t doubt he supports the club and goes to the games. By all means disagree but don’t make cheap remarks like that. Nothing honest about silly remarks like that.

19.) 21 Apr 2019 10:03:24
Bindo until we get an abramovic to invest in club we are not going to catch celtic anyway soon they could go out tomorrow and buy a 10 million player if they needed to we can only get a decent player on a loan
That's where we are.

20.) 21 Apr 2019 10:12:21
AD - I am comparing their ages and ability is relative depending the league you are in.

21.) 21 Apr 2019 10:56:50
6counties - celtic spending £10 mill on a player? No chance, they have had their scheidty hands burnt once too often.



19 Apr 2019 15:02:58
Steve Davis hints he’ll be staying with Rangers next season if asked, is there opinions on this?


1.) 19 Apr 2019 15:29:12
Ulsterman, stevie davis is now beginning to get his match fitness level and thus he's now performing a lot better for us. I've always been a massive fan of davis and i most definitely would offer him a 1 year deal with a further 1 year option.
He'll be terrific to have around our squad, into the bargain.

2.) 19 Apr 2019 15:48:48
Definitely worth signing for a season as long as the weekly wage isn’t too large. I can’t see him playing week in and out however, he’ll be a great option to have and a great professional to have about the squad.

3.) 19 Apr 2019 16:06:46
Said all along that Davis would come good, so many in here quick to judge a player when he comes in, every player who comes in needs to earn their place, and Davis is starting to do that now.

I think when tav leaves in the summer it will be a straight shootout between Davis and greegsy who will be captain. Personally greegsy would be class as captain but Davis edges it for me as he has been Northern Ireland captain for years.

4.) 19 Apr 2019 16:29:01

5.) 19 Apr 2019 16:43:17
Ulsterman - Davis is a class act when fit. You might know better than most, but did he not have an apparently great game for NI. He is a class above above Arfield and head and shoulders above broon.

Of the players in our first team, Morelos, Davis, Arfield, McGregor and Kent are the ones that I would like to see remain, IMO there are if's and but's for the rest, and some injured and loan that I want back, and hopefully some others stepping up from the u21's.

I honestly think that SG has the making of a very good side - need's a bit of hard work and a smidgin of good luck and we will be on our way.

6.) 19 Apr 2019 17:29:46
NNC - I can’t ever remember Steve Davis having a bad game for NI, other NI posters on this site may have a different story, I’m probably bias but I still think the guy is a class act, I met him in a Shopping centre and he can take a banter, just a nice guy and Rangers daft, I was calling him tiny and he just laughed out loud. You seem to have a good grasp of Scottish football as most of you guys on this site do, so if you say he can cut it in your league that’s good enough for me.

7.) 19 Apr 2019 17:41:24
Bad move signing an over the hill player with no sell on value.

8.) 19 Apr 2019 17:47:22
Sell on value doesn't HELP win league titles and cups, Arthur D!
No disrespect intended mate!

9.) 19 Apr 2019 18:26:22
Some posters on here really do not have a grasp of what we are about - Steve Davis is back at Ibrox not to enhance his reputation and seek a big pay in the EPL - he has done that and shone like a beacon. Steve Davis is here to help his beloved Glasgow Rangers. Steve Davis is at his last club, and if EVERY PLAYER next year puts in the effort that I know and expect he will put in then I will be a happy chappy.

10.) 19 Apr 2019 19:19:19
Steve Davis will be a big player for Gers next season, he didn't have much game time before coming home but you can see the difference in the last couple of games, he would be my captain next season, I hope we sell Morelos for a good price, he's let us down to many times with all the red cards. We need a clear out& get some class in, I think rossiter has shaken of his injury hoodoo &can be an important part of our squad next season.

11.) 19 Apr 2019 19:28:59

Sorry but have to disagree about that. Getting a young player improving him then selling him for a profit allows the manager to reinvest in the squad which could lead to better quality players thus to winning titles. Davis is done and is not the answer going forward.

12.) 19 Apr 2019 21:11:18
If he is done why is he playing so well for his national team? Against a better opposition that’s in the Scottish league.

13.) 19 Apr 2019 21:46:24
Arthur - that is two posts you've made about Steve Davis and imo both are totally wrong and way off the mark - next two seasons are not about making money.

14.) 19 Apr 2019 21:54:50
If Davis stays, then we must play a 442. To many wingers playing.

15.) 19 Apr 2019 22:14:53
I have to disagree with yourself Arthur D. There's two ways to skin a cat and i do understand what you're saying, but where steven davis is concerned, i think you're wrong pal,
simple as that.

16.) 20 Apr 2019 02:48:30
Davis is far from done. If Gerrard had waited a few games before chucking him in, I think we'd all be singing his praises right now and possibly still be in the hunt for the title. He still has a lot to offer (our most naturally talented midfielder? ) , but the problem is how and when to play him. It's a difficult balance - both young and older players need game time in order to thrive.

At the moment I'd give Gerrard 7/ 10 given that he's a young manager who inherited a bit of a CF. Let's get behind him so he can finish the season strongly and push on with (hopefully) some good signings in the summer.

17.) 20 Apr 2019 09:55:02
First time for a while but I disagree with Arthur as I think Davis has something to offer and no transfer fee. think he's shown in last couple of games he can play a big part.



18 Apr 2019 14:46:21
If true, why would Souttar not want to sign for Rangers? is he a Celtic minded player?


1.) 18 Apr 2019 15:11:15
No idea mate but I think its more Hearts not wanting to lose him.

2.) 18 Apr 2019 15:15:02
He attended “PUBLIC” schools. That’s means nothing I know. Levein is an absolute clown thou so I would pay NO attention to what he says. He certainly doesn’t speak for John Souttar.

3.) 18 Apr 2019 16:42:29
I don’t think we should care if he’s ‘Celtic Minded’, what does that actually mean anyway? If he’s good enough and wants to sign for us then that’s good enough for me.

4.) 18 Apr 2019 16:46:10
Maybe he doesn’t speak for Souttar, but that was a statement and a half and he is basically telling you where the players heart is? And it’s certainly not with us🇬🇧.

5.) 18 Apr 2019 17:24:15
When I say Celtic minded, would Leigh Griffiths, Ever sign for Rangers? or would we ever want him, he’s Celtic minded, would Ally McCoist have ever signed for Celtic? doubt it as he’s Rangers minded, so you don’t agree, that’s ok, in the long run it’s two different options.

6.) 18 Apr 2019 18:21:27
If rangers would of wanted Leigh Griffiths before he signed for Celtic he would of signed for us! Being Celtic are rangers minded means nothing you only have to look at Neil McCann, kenny dalglish, Danny mcgrain and davie provan and even Scott brown who all supported one side of the old firm but played for the other!

7.) 18 Apr 2019 19:13:57
Ulsterman don't want piss on your post but Scott Brown was Rangers minded.

8.) 18 Apr 2019 20:27:57
Yeah this mentality of Rangers and Celtic minded is hopefully a thing of the past, we just need people who want to play for Rangers, simple as that. Yeah Griffiths would have signed for Rangers when he was at Livi and Dundee, regardless of all the nonsense relating to McGinn, he would have signed and I would have cheered every goal he scored.

9.) 18 Apr 2019 21:01:22
NNC - piss on it if you want, I don’t take these things seriously, it’s just a debate and a bit of fun. I disagree with a few posts, I don’t think Leigh Griffiths would ever have signed for Rangers, just like John Collins when Souness tried to sign him, just opinions lads not bigotry or malice, if you knew me you’d know that.

10.) 18 Apr 2019 23:03:16
Yeah sorry Ulsterman I was trying to imply you were, I think the saying has been lost in translation. We’ll never know about Griffiths or Collins but I guess we can agree that we only want people who want to play for Rangers!

Hopefully 3 or 4 good players and we’ll be back where we belong.

11.) 19 Apr 2019 08:10:08
Guys what a load of tosh, it’s 2019, we are a modern football club and institution (as are Celtic) and we sign the best players we can. I know for a fact Scott Brown would have signed for us if we had approached him first with an acceptable offer. Modern players are family, career and money minded, pretty much like the rest of society.

12.) 19 Apr 2019 09:04:21
Bankie -You’re right up to a point, but not every player would play for a certain team, I’ve read of certain players saying they would never sign for “say” Man U, our manager was one, , but your right as is most of the posts above, most players just play for the best contract and glory . Personally if I had’ve been a player I would never ever have signed for Celtic, I could never have been happy with the fans chanting certain things or letters, but that’s not the point you’re making, that’s another question.

13.) 19 Apr 2019 09:30:58
Yeah, three to four quality players and we can look to a good next season, the defence still worries me and a creative midfielder, hopefully Davis will come the fore, Jones will be good but he can have lazy games, Stevie G will work that out of him.

14.) 19 Apr 2019 11:22:13
Bankie, we did approach scott brown first, i can assure you pal. His pals from the hill of beath used to sit across the isle from me in the copland road stand. The deal was all agreed between martin bain and rod petrie. They shook hands on £3.9million for scott brown. However Celtic eventually offered £4.4million for him and petrie went back on his agreement with bain and rangers eventually told hibs they were not upping their already agreed offer of £3.9million.

15.) 19 Apr 2019 14:27:55
Supercoop, believe what you said is correct, he chose them not because he was “Celtic Minded” but only because he and Petrie accepted stronger financial offer.

Ulsterman, I would like to agree with you but believe most young players would select the best offer. I suspect even SG would have chosen Man U or Everton if they had offered a better contract offer than Liverpool. I can still remember when Alfie Conn, a “bluenose” signed for Celtic and more recently sure we can all remember Mo Johnston.

16.) 19 Apr 2019 14:56:13
Well the debate was interesting.



16 Apr 2019 09:10:41
I see Michael Stewart is bumping his gums again concerning Rangers, a lot of these
( not so good journalists ) are making a good living giving their unwelcome and unprofessional views in an institution that makes millions of people smile 😊 I suppose it’s the only way these uneducated guys can make a buck?


1.) 16 Apr 2019 11:57:31
Talking about "bucks", levein tried to trade stewart in at cash converters to get his buck back and they told him to jog on. Terrible footballer, even worse pundit. The bbc know they have lost the ratings, that's why that clown thompson is now a presenter. No one else of credibility will go near bbc sportscene. That jonathan sutherland that commentates for them proves that they are a joke show. 😂😂😂👍.

2.) 16 Apr 2019 13:36:36
not sticking up for that f*nny Stewart but he was only commenting on Dave Kings statement (which was just a lot of havers)

3.) 16 Apr 2019 14:45:24
Dave Kings “Dominant Force” was absolute rubbish to be fair. He wasn’t lying there.

4.) 16 Apr 2019 15:25:01
Sportscene is a joke programme. Amateur night. Always good for a chuckle mind you as they try but fail miderably to hide their hatred.

In the Sunday Mail this morning, and I quote, don’t feel sorry for Wallace, Rangers made him a millionaire, he had a chance to go to Bristol City in English championship and turned it down, so he wasn’t worried about playing games, just what went into the bank, fair play to the guy, it’s a short career.

Unless Lawrence Shankland has something special then he’s not for Rangers, I understand the transfer money isn’t there to buy a recognised striker? But surely with the European scouting system in place we can pick up a talented player at a reasonable price? Re Morelos, talent great albeit temperament iffy 😝 ( being kind ) Rangers must set their sights high if they are to wrestle the title away from Celtic, who will be buying decent players in June.
