What about a director of football set up?


1.) 11 Feb 2017 16:16:13
Really depends who is in as manager if its a younger guy with only one or two previous posts then yes possibly (have to be someone who knows our club though) but if its an experienced campaigner, with their own trusted assistant and first team coach then probably not! I really hope we hold off until end of season and have a look how things lie down south if likes of leeds miss out on playoff promotion garry monk (probably be in demand) would be a cracker!

Derek adams is still my pick great job at plymouth and has done well in past with ross county! Think he will take argyle up this year so don't know what he would want to do as that's probably as far as they can go! he's ready for a bigger job (yes ours is massive) but he looks to have a good future as a manager! He has big brewster as his side kick, tidy big player in his day with plenty of experience and both guys know the league and the history of our club! All depends on where we are shopping really! Which remains a mystery at present.

My choice would be Michael o'niell under a director of football. Or frank de boer.

4.) 12 Feb 2017 14:51:11
I would love to get Barry Ferguson back to the club in some roll, not as manager though, poss assistant to someone.

5.) 12 Feb 2017 19:15:41
Adams is on a 5 year contract and would cost a fortune in compensation.



11 Feb 2017 07:54:32
A week ago there was some sympathy for warburton because he hadn't had the funds to get better players. Now it's good rideness because their are stories he was angling for the forest job. I'm not sure you can blame the guy for looking for another job when all the signs were he was getting sacked anyway, the supporters, media and board all on his back.

I think he has made mistakes for me his comments in the media haven't helped. I think this comes from a man who was frustrated with the lack of backing he had had from his board and obviously feeling the pressure. If I was his position I would probably feel I was fighting a losing battle.

I bet the board can't believe their luck. They can now say they didn't have a committed management team and it was them who walked away. I think the fact that there has been no transparency from DK is a joke it's like having one of those faceless overseas owners. The truth no matter how bad it is is better than stringing along supporters buying season tickets. £30 million he said he would invest where is it? What is the strategy?

My shout for next manager would be M O'Neil or T wright. Not convinced Mcleish would be a good idea we wanted him out in the end remember? What was it 10/ 11 games in a row without a win and we had a better team then.


1.) 11 Feb 2017 09:14:27
M O'Neill is one of the better shouts in my opinion. Would much prefer him than mcinnes, Davies etc. He has worked wonders for Northern Ireland and I believe he lives in Scotland and would be a good shout.

2.) 11 Feb 2017 14:26:53
We would have to pay £1m in compensation for O'Neill and I am not convinced that he would be as successful as a club manager as he has been with Northern Ireland.
It is not an easy decision as to who we bring in next. Whoever it is will need to be given serious financial backing and it will be interesting to see whether we get anything other than more bullshit from Dave King!



31 Jan 2017 20:38:53
Jota having a great game for Brentford tonight I wonder what his contract situation is as he looks good on this showing.

I'm a little surprised we haven't signed anyone yet on a pre-contract there must be a few decent players out there. The loan signings does raise a bit of doubt over the boards backing of Warburton which is a shame as he hadn't had any decent money to spend and had a bit of bad luck with players who may turn out to be good buys being injured.


1.) 31 Jan 2017 23:20:57
It's clear the board haven't been impressed with Warburton's transfer dealings and it's hard to blame them. £1.8m for a striker who can't score in Scotland yet Kilmarnock can pick up a guy for free and sell him for £800k in 6 months.

2.) 31 Jan 2017 23:24:11
I would say £1.8m is decent money to spend and look what he got for that

3.) 01 Feb 2017 08:27:15
If you think we have actually spent 1.8 million on garner your bonkers. He probably has to score 50 goals in a year to get the add ons up to that. More than likely less than a million.

4.) 01 Feb 2017 08:59:53

In your last sentence you have said "more likely" which means you don't know so how can you call anyone bonkers when you said yourself you don't know what was paid and therefor can't prove us wrong?

5.) 01 Feb 2017 10:24:29
I think we actually paid £10m for Garner but we get a discount if he doesn't score 50 goals in a season. Probs we'll only pay £1.8m!

More than likely I have no idea what the deal was but I try to put a positive slant on it!

on our loan signings emerson hyndman and jon toral. i would really hope that rangers are already working on a longer term loan deal, for bournemouth playmaker emerson hyndman. instead of the original 6 month loan deal, i hope that we can work something out with bournemouth, to make this an 18 month loan deal! hyndman is exactly what we're needing in our midfield!

he's very direct with his forward passing, he has a killer ball in him, which can split a defence, wide open, he never wastes a ball, never hides and always makes himself available in space, to take the ball! this young man has a big future and is a tremendous, playmaking midfielder! in the 2 games i've seen him play for us, we look much more purposeful in midfield, with much faster, forward passing! would love him permanently but know there's no chance of that!

this brings me on nicely to jon toral. i truly think we have a chance of keeping him permanently, as he's out of contract at arsenal, at the end of the season. he's a very good flair player, with a terrific left peg! he's a goalscoring type attacking midfielder, who also creates chances for himself and others! also good dead ball footballer, with terrific delivery! so these 2 loan players have already made a helluva difference to our central midfield and attacking midfield! imo these 2 players will guarantee, we finish 2nd in the league! so all in all, although there loan deals, they are very good additions and its been very good business for rangers, in january, irrespective if they're loan deals or not! well done mark warburton for securing these 2 very good midfielders, that will make the difference!

if only dk would back you a wee bit more! really hope warbs is still this football clubs manager for next season! he deserves that chance, although i do have my doubts if he will be still here, going by what happened at our recent board meeting! if reports are true, warbs took an absolute grilling from dk!

11.) 01 Feb 2017 18:08:18
What was he grilled about?
Must have been the signings he made particularly Barton, Senderos, Kranjcar and possibly Garner.

12.) 01 Feb 2017 19:46:37
Good post Supercoop. Too much being read into the board meeting largely due to coverage and spinning by the daily rebel. A purpose of a board meeting is to ask questions and make executives responsible and accountable.



28 Jan 2017 14:08:24
So impressed with Hyndman today what a player he is I hope we can either buy him in the summer or get him for another year! I think he might be in Bournemouth plans for next year if today is anything to go by.

Toral also impressed but Hyndman was a stand out!


1.) 28 Jan 2017 14:41:14
Agreed, looks very good



16 Jan 2017 19:12:50
Does anyone think C Berra and A Considine would be good additions? Better defenders than what we have with exception of maybe Hill and both players are in last 6 months of contracts I believe so no huge transfer. Considine I like as he can provide better LB cover than Wilson.

I also think Hayes for 500k sounds a decent deal he has caused us and Celtic problems.

The loan signings might help us get 2nd but Does anyone know if either would be available to sign on perm deal after loans?


1.) 16 Jan 2017 19:50:38
agree with berra mate 100% but considine your having a laugh not any better than what we have would take big hill all day before him and as for hayes for 500 000 no chance we don't have the money and the shhep have already turned down the same offer from cardif

2.) 16 Jan 2017 20:48:26
Berra would be a good acquisition. He is better than what we currently have!

3.) 16 Jan 2017 21:09:34
Id take Berra. Seems to have really developed over the last couple of seasons. Seems pretty solid and dependable and 29 is prime for a cb

4.) 16 Jan 2017 22:38:36
Big Davy says we don't need defenders were fine in an interview today.
Must look a whole lot different from the touch line! It not ever becoming laughable it Dire!

5.) 16 Jan 2017 23:11:59
I think Berra would be a fantastic signing but again I would worry due to the system and if he could cope with basically having not much in the way of further cover defensively with the tactics we play. Considine for me would seem like the sort of signing we would make if we were still in the lower leagues under McCoist so not for me with that one.

6.) 17 Jan 2017 00:17:01
We could offer MOH for Hayes lol I am joking. sort of

7.) 17 Jan 2017 07:50:51
Johnny Hayes. No thank you! MOH was a proven SPL player and look at him now. Guys like Hayes and O'halloran are just not good enough to push us on. I'd seriously rather take a loan from England than waste money on Hayes.

8.) 17 Jan 2017 13:22:17
Christophe berra is 31 years old, huey!

9.) 17 Jan 2017 15:43:29
huey, Berra will be 32 on 31st Jan, so don't know where you got 29 from?

Surely King arriving means MOH deal is dead. Warrburton talks about a lean squad surely he can't have Miller, waghorn, McKay, King, Forrester and MOH not too mention Nicky Clark. thoughts?

Personally I think MOH would be a good buy for us and at the price I think he is good value. Can't say I have seen too much of King to know if he is better than what we have. I wonder if he did well like Holt what his contract situation is.

Well said spoc! These boys have a big part to play in second half of season and I wonder when Garner is back if he will get more goals with these guys in the team. we needed these loan signings to give us more chance of getting second. I do think the right attacking position is up for grabs as not convinced Waghorn or Ohalloran are consistent enough. Should forester or dodo be given a run now?

I agree w15 we have got to stick with the manager at this stage. Very disappointing start thing I find strange is our signings from the summer and it makes you wonder who is making the signings. I said on here that Niko was asked where he saw himself playing and he said in behind striker. For me that sent alarm bells ringing as warburton was saying something else. Our style last year was quick passing and lots of movement and yet we sign a guy to play as attacking midfielder who seems himself as off the striker and not a midfielder.

With Barton I though it might work because he could give us another option but the evidence so far is that having him and Niko play in midfield means a lack of good pressing and quick passing. Warburton needs to be brave now and for me play haliday, holt, probably windass and gradually bring crooks in. at the minute i'd go for having good honest pros and get back the team spirit we had last year.

Totally agree W15. It's so frustrating that so many of our players are off form right now and that typical football fans are being so fical about the team. I think the signings made are good signings and MW I a great manager but 10 new players means it was always going to take time. Win our next game and suddenly we are right in the mix again.

Game of opinions that's why we love it! I thought Barry and Harry were both very good yesterday sure they have room for improvement and they will get better. I wish the rest of the Rangers team had wee Barry's first touch and burst of pace. The boy will go on to play at a higher level.
