Has anyone else heard that ally mccoist has already been interviewed for the st. mirren manager job and is now the frontrunner to get it? I've just heard as much myself, mccoist, durrant and mcdowall possibly new st. mirren management team? I wonder!

Tony Mowbray is out of a job. Shock I know.


2.) 30 Sep 2016 20:54:17
Good luck to the 3 of them where under so much pressure at ibrox fresh start needed and honestly wish Mccoist Durant and mcdowell all the best 1 message for them
Keep they hibs down get right into Lennon.


3.) 30 Sep 2016 23:28:29
McCoist could be a perfect fit for St Mirren after all he has a lot of experience with a struggling championship club.


4.) 30 Sep 2016 23:53:36
Good luck to him legend as a player not oor manager but tough job to take enough said.


5.) 01 Oct 2016 08:39:25
Rangers legend as a player and Rangers legend as a manager. Done an incredible job during the worst years in our clubs history and done it under duress. No other could've or would've done what he did. His demise was well orchastrated by the **** at the helm. If I could change anything during his time as a manger, it would be the board and some of the fans. Board gave too little, fans wanted too much.

Good luck super Ally. Rangers till we die.

say what you want about super ally tactically as a manager but for what he done as a player and the stuff he had to deal with as a manager for me he's overtaken john greig as the greatest ever ranger and i wish him all the best if he gets that's job.


8.) 01 Oct 2016 10:17:52
Totally agree monty no matter what he did as manager no one will ever surpass what he achieved as a player for us again gave me some of best memories ever.


9.) 01 Oct 2016 12:23:07
I'd love to see him do well there. It's unfair to judge any manager's ability based on what he had to endure during his tenure. Mind you, out of the frying pan .


10.) 01 Oct 2016 12:58:09
I'd love ally to get the st mirren job just to see him back in football. Managers drop like flys at that club though.


11.) 02 Oct 2016 12:20:26
I hear its another ex Her B Ferguson.


12.) 02 Oct 2016 15:12:15
Its John Lambie. On Sky Sports.


13.) 03 Oct 2016 13:41:40
monty I totally agree with you he done what no one else could or would have and had to deal with all the promises the new regimes promised and he bought in players that on paper should have scooshed thae championship at a canter but they all underperformed because what was going on around the club.
I wish him nothing but the best and hope he can stick one to lenny and co and stop them from coming up lol.


14.) 03 Oct 2016 22:00:29
Sorry but absolute rubbish. He was the guy who put the team together with the second highest budget in Scotland, he was just a poor coach but great pundit. That said he succeeded in being the number one paid manager in Scotland and he didn't even know it!


15.) 04 Oct 2016 10:21:06
true brit the players he bought underperformed and yes his tactics weren't great but the guy got us to the championship and I honestly believe that we wouldn't be rangers if it was for him and we wouldn't have been able to hold on to our titles as he was the only one fighting for the best intrests of the club .
but because he took his wages and didn't get us promoted he was the worst managers ever? get a grip man the guy done what he could with what he could and I don't believe anyone on this plannet would have stuck with it as long as he did.

in my eyes he is the greatest ranger ever.


16.) 04 Oct 2016 15:40:41
James, he was a good CF but he never was never a good coach. He had the league won with games to go and he still never played or developed our youth. He stood in his technical area without movement or raising his voice whilst we were being embarrassed on the park. I presume you go to the games, well you are deceiving yourself if you believe we played good football under Ally, nice guy that he is!


17.) 05 Oct 2016 16:46:04
true brit I am not deceiving myself .
I know his tactics where all wrong and way way too defensive but he wasn't just a manager he had to deal with the pressures of being a rangers manager with the added pressures
of what was going on .

he was promised the world but had been fooled like the rest of us by white then green.

no other manager would have been able to do any better under the conditions in which he had to work.

team building is hard when u don't have those pressures on u but when when u do have them then its almost impossible plus the players underperformed and made him look worse

he is a very intelligent man with great attributes to be a manager so I wish the greatest ever ranger imo all the best of luck.

19.) 05 Oct 2016 22:20:25
James, we could bat this back and forward for hours, fact is we will never really know what went on with the White / Green team. For my part, he like many others at the club benefited during that period and for such an intelligent guy we are asked to accept that he had moments of severe naivety . "I didn't know what I was being paid"!

Sorry much as I respect your opinion and Super Ally's contribution as a player, his Managerial period did not build on what he achieved as a player and I would also suggest that they are many more befitting the tag as 'the greatest ever Ranger' not least the the man who's stature stands outside our stadium.


20.) 06 Oct 2016 10:57:09
its just my opinion that he is the greatest ranger ever and we will never have a player of his stature again.

I think if given the chance that warbs got he would do a great job but because of everything that he was put through in those dire times he couldn't, I know we can't know what was going on but we all know for sure it wasn't fair on rangers fans and certainly wasn't fair to put him through that.
I believe he will be a good manager .
I respect your opinion true brit but I honestly whole heartedly disagree and think he was harshly treated by a minority of fans.


21.) 26 Oct 2016 00:27:31
James Stirling, I have seen many players at Rangers that were better than McCoist including Jim Forrest who, with Lately alongside would have scored more goals than McCoist. Guys like Baxter, Laudrup, Gascoigne, Trevor Steven, Terry Butcher, Richard Gough were all better players, albeit in different positions so I guess it is subjective as to who anyone considers to be the best all time Ranger.

For me, and notwithstanding the aforementioned, John Greig for numerous reasons remains head and shoulders above McCoist as the greatest ever Ranger. Greig was a man of integrity, a gentleman off the pitch and hard as nails on the pitch. He led by example through good times and bad. McCoist just isn't in the same league.

As a manager He had a difficult time but he was smart enough to feather his own nest and given the budget that he had at his disposal I am not overly enthused by his record. Not one young player was developed during his time in office and not one quality player came in, either through the ranks or from outside.


 

 

27 Sep 2016 15:44:53
I didn't post last night. what I'm about to post now fellow bears because I thought it was way off the mark and just one of these stupid rumours because our club and manager are going through a bit of a hard time at present and as everyone knows on here I totally believe in warbs and weir and what they're doing at our club which will of course take time.

anyway I'll share with you all what I was told last night by a very good friend of gordon dalziel, he told me billy davies was turning down the st. mirren manager's job today at some point and that davies wants the rangers job and no other job in scottish football.

davies is thought of very highly by 2 of our directors at rangers and is willing to wait and see how things pan out at ibrox between now and christmas as if anything happens to warburton, which I personally don't think will, he is very confident he'll get the nod to become the new rangers manager.

only passing on info I was told guys by mr. dalziels pal, I do know that dave king is a massive fan of billy davies, we'll just have to wait and see, I rate davies but I rate warbs and 100% behind him, in warbs I trust.

Warburtonthefifteenth

1.) 27 Sep 2016 17:13:02
Im also 100% behind warbs and weir WTF. We r only 7 games in and being back in premiership was always gona b tough. let's back the management to the hilt.
Davies has proved himself in england however is, i believe meant to b very militant etc. if he is a future gers manager then i'd back him like any other however it surely must b some way down the line. FIRB.


2.) 27 Sep 2016 18:31:39
Well posted W15 - your never far off the mark and I know you speak highly of our present manager - wheels and cogs are always turning somewhere so you never know what lies ahead - Warbs was the right man for the job but he must bring everyone together and show improvement fairly quickly or your rumour may well be founded -.


3.) 27 Sep 2016 20:39:24
Davies is damaged and has never recovered from an unfortunate association with TS. His appointment would be the beginning of the end for DK.


4.) 27 Sep 2016 19:27:18
Naw it ain't happening and never will.

If Warbs goes it will be Alex Neil, Mark Hughes, Derek Mcinnes, Alex McCleish or the return of Sir Walter of Smith as interim manager.

We will go English based.


5.) 27 Sep 2016 20:41:37
Davies didn't come across at all well when asked about the Rangers job in a radio interview last year, he almost spoke in disdain as if that job was beneath him.


6.) 27 Sep 2016 21:42:11
Warbs15, i know that you have put up posts that have had some truth to them, but in this instance i must ask; does your mate drink in the same pub as davies? that means any pub, davies has got a problem that will eventually lead to a new liver.

i thought years ago davies would be good for rangers, but after reading about his demons, i wouldn't want him near our club. the guy has got a big problem with the amber nectar, so its a big no from me, and in this instance i hope your info is wrong, sorry mate.


7.) 28 Sep 2016 03:30:55
Mark Hughes, why o why would we want him? Or more to the point why would he want to come to us? 1/ 8 wages no money to spend. yawn yawn yawn. be sensible, we are a huge club with no money and little going for us with the exception of a decent stadium and a potentially world class set up for youth system, these boys want instant results something sadly we can't give, please get real to where we are and where will be for the next few years.


8.) 28 Sep 2016 10:49:55
for talkings sake warbs does i think we should have look at tommy wright he gets as much as he can out a average st johnstone he's a massive rangers fan not saying give him the job but at least ask to speak to him right now the domestic scene is our priority and he has experience of that.


9.) 28 Sep 2016 12:19:44
Colshygers, tommy wright is a decent manager and doing really well at st. johnstone but as I stated in op I rate our current management team and believe it's way too early to judge them now! One of my good mates wants big john (yogi) hughes as our next manager if anything were to happen to warbs, he's always rated big hughes and likes his style of football, he also thinks big yogi is very tactically sound, he has a point as big hughes is a good manager imo also although I'm more than happy with our manager and at the end of the season is when to judge him, get right behind him and the team for the full season! !


10.) 28 Sep 2016 12:42:02
At one time I would have been happy with billy Davies but not now came across on radio interview arrogant not for me.


11.) 28 Sep 2016 13:09:55
warbs we should get right behind the manager but if he keeps playing 4-3-3 to our detriment then he won't last the his contract.

all those talented midfielders and only three midfield spots.

playin 3 against a celtic midfield 5!

this is naïve from warbs and he shouldn't need to be told he is wrong as its plain for everyone to see.

I love his style of play but defence needs better cover and our best players are midfielders this season and w have wingers so why not play 4 in the middle and still play the same style?


12.) 28 Sep 2016 18:36:27
I believe Warburton is naive, I believe he has been caught in the headlights with the intensity that comes with the job, I believe he is still on a learning curve (and it had better be quick) and I believe he will have to change his championship tactics for something far more suiting the SPhelL. However, I would have him in a heartbeat over Davies, an arrogant wee man with no recent track record and nothing to suggest that he is the stature of manager we would need.


13.) 28 Sep 2016 19:33:39
As I stated earlier my big mate really rates big john (yogi) hughes as a good manager and really thinks he would make a good, future rangers manager and would want hughes to be considered for the rangers manager's job if anything did happen to warburton, I myself rate hughes and always have done although I'm more than happy with warbs and weir, a wee hypothetical question here to my fellow bears, how highly do you rate big yogi hughes as a manager and do you think he's rangers material as a future manager?


14.) 29 Sep 2016 20:14:49
W15 he wouldn't b my 1st choice IF MW wer to go but i know for sure he gets his players to run thru brick walls for him.


15.) 29 Sep 2016 20:55:16
Of course he's not Rangers material, not even close. In days gone by we would have said he is a decent trainer, but he's got precious few modern-day skills to bring to a club like ours.


16.) 29 Sep 2016 23:02:30
Wee-ecky, they said the same about big alex mcleish and he was a good rangers manager, imo there's a lot of similarities between alex mcleish and john hughes in their managerial styles,2 very similar characters!


 

 

29 Aug 2016 20:44:52
Can somebody out there please shed some light on this, where the h*ll is senderos, what is going on here? Are rangers hedging their bets?

Warburtonthefifteenth

1.) 29 Aug 2016 22:40:40
Warbs: it's over with senderos they obviously can't agree terms! Were Ment to be interested in a lad from Chelsea don't know his name or anything. Is there anyone on here can shed light on this rumour.


2.) 29 Aug 2016 22:45:36
It is very worrying when we also don't know the extent of Wilson's injury. Warburton surely isn't contemplating going into the Celtic game with Hill and Kiernan.


3.) 30 Aug 2016 09:57:45
Just a calf strain for Wilson Tom, expect him starting against Celtic.


4.) 30 Aug 2016 10:51:53
This isn't my rumour, but one of my pals is adamant that MW wants him but has been told there is no more money.

Personally I hope we are looking elsewhere for someone who can stay fit and isn't honking.


5.) 30 Aug 2016 13:52:36
That, Mr Nice I can believe and if it is the case it is very disappointing.

Having said that it was Warburton's decision I presume to sign Hill and that is simply a waste of money that could have been better spent elsewhere!


6.) 30 Aug 2016 14:38:12
Hopefully hill is a good coach, as don't think he has much left to offer on the pitch.

Really can't see us getting the defender that we need.


7.) 29 Aug 2016 21:55:24
It's either senderos or no one clearly. Wouldn't suprise me if the window shuts without another defender at this rate.


 

 

10 Aug 2016 22:55:29
Heard one of our next signings is definitely a player who's based in london, I wasn't told the player's position or the name of the player in question, its got me thinking though about who it could be.

Warburtonthefifteenth

1.) 11 Aug 2016 02:25:05
Said it before, Watford have been approached for Craig Cathcart, he's no longer a first pick at centre half and doesn't see himself as a right back. He's only a year into a 4-year deal, so that's a problem.


2.) 11 Aug 2016 09:41:29
Well end up with Rod Fanni he was at Charlton last year that's your London based signing in afraid.


3.) 11 Aug 2016 10:32:31
Ball?


4.) 11 Aug 2016 11:55:46
According to Twitter he's off to Sunderland.

6.) 11 Aug 2016 13:03:16
Wb15 perhaps you should stop listening to those voices in your head.

Wild rumour, after wild rumour.


7.) 11 Aug 2016 13:03:48
Hope we move our arse and get a couple more players in.


8.) 11 Aug 2016 15:00:54
Dunno who we're getting but put a tenner in it both will be done on the last day of transfer window :/.


 

 

30 Jul 2016 20:29:53
Frank mcparland walked by us going in the main doors at Ibrox today with 3 other guys, we were all positive that one of the guys looked like the leicester striker ulloa, we'll find out soon enough, thought joey barton was by far one of our better performers against burnley today, very good range of passing and hardly wasted a ball, without question he'll be a terrific signing for us, kranjcar looked well off the pace today and looked well short of match fitness, our defence badly needs sorting out but I'm sure the magic hat knows that and will fix it out, must be honest, the step up in class showed today.

Warburtonthefifteenth

1.) 30 Jul 2016 22:31:46
Much would ulloa cost?


2.) 30 Jul 2016 22:38:23
Leicester have Ulloa valued at £15m, don't think we'd ever spend over the £1.5m mark for a player.


3.) 30 Jul 2016 22:40:12
He has just rejected a move to Swansea I doubt we could afford to pay more than what he offered and I doubt he would leave the EPL to join the SPL.


4.) 30 Jul 2016 23:18:20
Good Player would score for fun up here but he's got a number of clubs looking at him and unless its a loan Deal we won't be able to afford him.


5.) 30 Jul 2016 23:25:32
Was standing out there as well it was Bradley Orr the football agent.


6.) 30 Jul 2016 23:42:12
Warbs15, I was at the game today as well, totally agree that Barton was head and shoulders above everyone else in a gers shirt! I never actually had him down as such an accomplished player! Thought it was all bravado on his part! However, the burnley fans showed how much they appreciated him at every chance today, which speaks volumes!

Without trying to be negative tho, as u pointed out niko looked very rusty in that company (really disappointed as I believe he's our class act) keirnan's distribution is nothing short of amateur (I've played with junior defenders who would pass him off the park! ) Gilks only shows just how well we fits our style of play! Waggy isn't even nearly as effective out wide as through the centre.

Despite hill giving away the pen and being at fault for 2nd goal! He never hides! will be a great addition next to wilson.


7.) 30 Jul 2016 23:58:43
*wes fit our style*.


8.) 31 Jul 2016 00:03:44
I think Halliday, Barton, McKay (just) and Rossiter got pass marks today but the rest were horrible. I'm hoping it's the kick up the RS they need but for me as much as I like Krancjar against better opposition he looks like a luxury player. I think we will be more effective with Barton, Rossiter and Halliday in the centre.
Millers movement and work rate is great but his finishing is poor, Waghorn is another kris Boyd and in the sense that he can rack the goals up against the inferior teams but I'm yet to be convinced he will score against the Sheep, Tims or Jat tarts with his limited ability.
I hope I'm wrong but after seeing a Gers team who have already played 5 games looking so far off the pace against an average Premiership side who are still way off match fitness and sharpness pretty much destroy us I have to admit concern for campaign ahead.
Hopefully we can get a good ch in and we react in right manner to today's setback.
Predicting Gers 2 Hamlton 1 next aWeekend


9.) 31 Jul 2016 00:42:35
ScottyGDF - good comments. Barton showed a
Lot of good skill and covered the back four regularly, however same as this time last year our problems were with the quick ball straight through the middle of the defence.
We are slow all over the park none more than krancjar who got caught in possession half a dozen times. Waghorn can't beat a man, mckay doesn't know how or doesn't want to take on the last man, we had no one able to offer any danger to Burnley. However Rossiter and o'halloran look
class. Dodoo jury still out, we never created anything for him. Miller, workhorse, no end result.
Halliday OK, Wallace couldn't get forward, he better get used to that! The rest were (and I'm trying to be nice) mediocre.
Worrying times bears. I hope MW and DW can see what needs sorting because the rest of the s
SPL are rubbing their hands at the moment!


10.) 31 Jul 2016 00:44:08
agree with W15th match summary Barton was our best player today and should be a great signing - rossiter also looked good and I hope the Warbs considers starting him and Barton.

Nikko looked off the pace today and will take time to get his match sharpness as he hasn't played much football last 6 months but will still be a good player for us. Good to see Harry come in and put in a shift and I thought hodson looked solid too. I much prefer waggy through middle as he drifts out the game on the wing I'd play MoH or Windass wide with makay on the other wing and bench miller.

Centre half and centre fwd def still required

In Warbs we trust.


11.) 31 Jul 2016 01:50:01
Warbs15, agreed regarding Bartons performance but I must of missed. or not heard about the sighting of Ulloa (spelling), which is strange considering my old man uses the marble staircase to access his seat and he would of said something had he seen the same.

However, I hope you're correct and my da was just pissed and couldn't see.

What is obviously from today is that we need a commanding centre back with pace.


12.) 31 Jul 2016 08:23:37
It wasn't Ulloa, he played the full 90mins last night against PSG in the States.

Plus he is on about 40k a week.


13.) 31 Jul 2016 09:06:36
CDC, it looked like ulloa mate as I said in my op, none of us were 100% on it but it did look very much like him, fair enough if some others have cleared this one up with their info as its not him, I was only posting this to see if other bears had maybe noticed him or NOT as the case may be, cheers!


14.) 31 Jul 2016 09:32:14
Looks like it was an agent with him.


15.) 31 Jul 2016 11:56:13
Ulloa was part of the Leicester squad that played PSG yesterday.


16.) 31 Jul 2016 15:16:13
I think you will find Ulloa is on NOTHING like 40k per week! SOme folk on here don't have a clue what most of the players ion the EPL are being paid. Only the top4/ 6 are paying big money. Most of the Spurs squad earn less than 40k p/ w. Leicester will not be paying anything like that for him. Anyhoo he certainly will not be coming to Ibrox either.


17.) 31 Jul 2016 17:53:41
Maybe we are buying Alloa. 😀😀😀Yesterday would have done us the world of good. Wee reality check. Shows the level we must aspire to. Remember our last 3 games were practically against glorified Junior sides, to playing a team just about to kick off in the EPL. definitely need another centre half. The only thing with Hill, is that he looks over it! I also think we have many players with great movement, getting into space and getting chances, but our finishing is poor. We need an out n out striker, even just to throw on for a plan b.


18.) 31 Jul 2016 19:14:23
yesterday was a reality check and quite worrying any team who are prepared to press from the front makes us run out of ideas i'm just glad burnley is the best we'll play this season tav once again showed why he's had so many teams kranjcar was either unfit or uninterested barton one of the best on the park rossiter impressive aswell think were in for a kevin keegan season we just nd to score more than we concede.


19.) 31 Jul 2016 20:21:13
Sebrofg. Are you referring to Bradley orr the 33yr old centre back who played for Burnley qpr etc. He retired last season. Can't find anything about him been an agent anywhere. I hope he's not coming out of retirement.


20.) 01 Aug 2016 13:09:59
I hate being negative but with the strike force the other lot have coupled with our defence knowing we can only be beat 3 times 4 times tops next season if we are to have a chance at 55 warbs must get better quality defence into our team.


21.) 01 Aug 2016 22:07:04
Bil72 the best and most rational assessment I've seen on here regarding the state of our team. A week ago the usual contributors had us winning the league. get real were poor in key positions. goalie centre half and centre forward and btw Tarvernier is a liability at full back. wake up and smell the Lillie's were not very strong.


22.) 02 Aug 2016 09:30:21
That result should emphasise that Warbs may, or may not totally understand what it takes to win a title, I hope he does, we can't carry on with no defence, not one player in our backline would have got anywhere near to Walters defense, none, not even his reserve side, Wilson was good with Weir helping him, then he deteriorated beyond belief, ending in him going from Liverpool to hearts, ? Says it all, I worry that the gaffer doesn't do defense, celtic will attack us early and fast, they won't forget Hampden, they will know how to play against us, so might Aberdeen, hearts etc, not being negative, just trying to be honest, if any of my posts ever get posted, I think DW has to sit down with Warbs and tell him Rangers have always had a strong spine and top defence, maybe asking Walters advice on defending wouldn't be a bad idea, bit overreacting I know. But we could be brought down very quickly in SPL, these teams know what is required, Saturday will be crucial

As its international week I would like to gauge what chances our country has to qualify from our group, for the 2018 world cup in russia. We must beat lithuania at hampden on saturday, simple as that! This is scotland manager gordon strachan's last chance at achieving qualification for a major tournament. I rate wee strachan as a manager but if he fails then imo its time for change and fresh ideas with the appointment of a new scotland manager paramount, my question I'll throw out there is who would we want to replace strachan as scotland manager, who has the ability and the best candidate to follow strachan and become the next scotland manager? Should be interesting!

SFA have already said they want to keep Strachan for the nxt Euro Qualifiers, seems like the balls in his court although no matter what happens I would like to see a change, maybe Wright from St. Johnstone. Or what about Neil from Norwich he may be available at the time but def want to see a change someone that's going to give youngsters decent game time and actually use the lads when selected!


2.) 06 Oct 2016 03:58:26
away you go.

get behind the boys and stop planning for our failure, ye sound like one a them.

absolutely disgraceful attitude mate.

no wonder we fail as a nation each year.


3.) 06 Oct 2016 08:17:12
My country northern ireland proved anything is possible so i wouldn't rule out Scotland maybe getting 2nd place. Not that it really bothers me either way but I'd like to see the 4 home nations qualify for the same tournament.


4.) 06 Oct 2016 08:22:41
Strach has been a good manager and we have to reach the play offs at least. If not then his time has to be over. I think this can be our time, with England in turmoil we have to take advantage. I am not saying we will beat them home and away but I believe we can take points off them. Games like Saturday is our big tests, its these games where we always fail to turn up. Lithuania, Slovakia and Slovenia are all going to be hard games but we must win at home and take something away. I predict 3-1 on Saturday.

As for Andy stating the managers he wants in, Wright is no where near good enough for Scotland manager and Neil is still young and would never consider the job. IF Strach does leave then I would be looking at a manager such as Steve Bruce or Paul Lambert. I know Bruce is English but we have to stop looking within Scotland. In an ideal world we would bring in a Sir Alex Ferguson or Graeme Souness but that's never going to happen.


5.) 06 Oct 2016 09:08:56
Aye mon the Scotland. I don't rate Strachan. Should've lost his job after failing to qualify for Euros. That's his one job and he failed so should've got the bullet. His insistence on fielding players who don't get a game for their club in English championship/ premiership and acquiring the services of Englishmem who's granny had a Scottish terrier dug, is infuriating and embarrassing, respectively.

However, so far so good with this campaign. Let's hope the lads keep it up. Maybe now that thumb is on the bench for Celtic, he'll get s game for Scotland. That seems to be the pattern. And as much as it pains me to say, he's by far Scotland's best striker. Yer that dumpling Steven Fletcher gets a game before him. á lá welcome to the world of Strachans Scotland.


6.) 06 Oct 2016 09:17:33
Geez it a rest blueblood they are only discussing the what ifs. Hardly a disgraceful attitude. And you think that's why we fail as a nation every year? Lol.


7.) 06 Oct 2016 10:33:50
Warb15
I like Strachan's honesty and he really is faced with limited options and I don't see how any manager can do much more. There isn't one great Scottish footballer today and everything about the national team is average. It's no great mystery why they haven't qualified for a world cup in 18 years.


8.) 06 Oct 2016 10:42:30
Benny 0812, '' Strachan has been a good manager'' you are at the wind up i assume. The only people who can say that are individuals like Steven Fletcher and others who he has continued to give caps to regardless of the rubbish they produce on the field, and of course keeping his best mate with a nice little earner as assistant.


9.) 06 Oct 2016 10:54:22
part a the reason we do is fans like him and the "medea" TYson fury

there is nothing about strapon to be negative about yet, last qual we had freak result.

get behind the team and stop spouting pressure before they have played.


10.) 06 Oct 2016 10:55:28
Strachan is as good as it gets for Scotland I'm afraid. I can't think of any decent manager that would take job alex neil too young to accept job like that.

{Ed001's Note - is Alex Neil decent? He was awful in the English Prem and was too arrogant to listen to advice.}


11.) 06 Oct 2016 11:11:59
Strachan is a pals act kind of guy!
he plays his favourite players reguardles of, form, potential, nationality, and fitness so why would we want bstarchan in charge.

I know it won happen but i'd love big walter to go back and get us qualified this time his time as Scotland manager we played brilliantly and it was the call of rangers that took him away from country duties so i'd hope he could come back into the job and play Scottish players and throw away the no good players .

I believe that we have a group of good players that could make the national team look a lot better than the one he has been putting out on the field.


12.) 06 Oct 2016 11:14:08
Strachan is even worse than George burley. hopeless no game plan at all, picks his players he likes not the ones on form. him and Darren Clarke would get on well lol.


13.) 06 Oct 2016 12:04:07
Some could say the same about our manager Ed, regarding advice.

{Ed001's Note - I guess so, I don't know enough about him, I do know it has been said to me more than once, by a large number of people now, about Neil.}


14.) 06 Oct 2016 12:29:32
Rangeken I don't see how has not done a good job. We don't have a good squad. In the last qualifiers we were unlucky. A last min goal against us v Poland, just beaten twice off Germany and drew and beat Ireland. We actually only had 1 bad result v Georgia.


15.) 06 Oct 2016 23:15:03
After watching the Slovakia v England game I reckon we could finish 2nd and get into the play offs. However we would need a bit of luck with the draw. As for a potential replacement no one really springs to mind.


16.) 06 Oct 2016 23:36:31
W15, I've an Alsatian dug that knows more about football than Strachan. He would be ideal at barking out instructions to the players.


17.) 06 Oct 2016 23:14:14
Ask O'Neil to leave the ROI job and take over Scotland. He would be right at home with them!


18.) 06 Oct 2016 23:37:59
Personally think he is doing ok with the squad he has .
Think though he is being loyal to one or two ( both fletchers) .
Would replace those two with McCormack and Halliday .
We won't be world beaters but don't think we are as bad as
some people are saying .
A good organised side without World class players can give any team a game, Iceland prime example .


19.) 07 Oct 2016 11:00:35
I like strachan as our national manager and more importantly I rate him but if he doesn't take us to russia we do need to freshen up and change him, someone ti come in with fresh ideas, my choice for the next scotland manager would without question be wee billy davies who imo would be perfect for the national job at this stage in his career, he's a fantastic coach with a tremendous football brain, although wait a minute I suppose huge jarse has an alsatian dug who's the perfect candidate and also better than davies as well as strachan!

As we all know the days are gone for us going out and paying top dollar in transfer fees for players we're wishing to sign, which is why we now have to rely on our rangers youth academy producing the young talent all the way through to our big team which of course is why we employed mark warburton as our rangers manager in the first place, this process however will take time and we probably won't witness the benefit of it for at least another 4 or 5 years which brings me on to my next very important point.

I know for a fact a good few years ago we were poised to appoint our ex full back of years gone by alex miller as head of our youth academy but at the last minute things changed and we didn't appoint miller, big mistake in my opinion as this man is rated so very highly and is regarded by many prominent football gurus as one of the very best coaches with young talented footballers in europe, what alex miller doesn't know about coaching and nurturing young talent isn't worth knowing about, he's a very clever, astute coach with a wonderful football brain.

I still at his now later years in life would love to see him given the top job at our youth academy as the head of rangers youth academy. he would be a brilliant choice and would give him FULL control to appoint any other coaches he wanted to work under him, we all know he used to be a manager with st. mirren, hibs, aberdeen etc but it is working with young talent as a coach which he's highly regarded as his field.

he was so very highly thought of when working at liverpool especially when gerrard houllier was the manager there, both houllier and kenny dalglish hailed him as genius of a football coaching brain, gary mcallister also said as much, my message to my club rangers is go and bring alex miller to rangers as our new head of our youth academy and we'll bear the fruits for many many years to come, its not too late, at a time when we have to rely very heavily on what young players we can produce we must have the best at the top and imo alex miller is by far one of the very best in europe! Go get him!

3.) 05 Oct 2016 11:40:50
he's 67 years old.


4.) 05 Oct 2016 12:12:54
Cee what does that matter he's 67 years old? Age is a number and its the way imo alex miller would do things in the coaching sense and employing his choice of coaches who'd work under him that would count, you know the saying if your good enough age is only but a number in this instance its the coaching brain that counts.


5.) 05 Oct 2016 12:56:29
I think the most important thing here is we have someone in the position you are trying to fill. I don't see what Craig Mulholland has done wrong and the fact we have a large amount of young players in the Scotland U-21s is anot indication that things in our youth department are actually starting to improve.

I would not like to see Alex Miller anywhere near it to be honest, we have a young progressive 1st team manager and someone of a similar mindset in charge of the youth department. Our future demands we produce more of our own quality players and I hope the guys we have in place can help deliver that.


6.) 05 Oct 2016 13:21:37
If he is that good W15, what club is he coaching at just now.


7.) 05 Oct 2016 13:34:12
I agree with Warbs15, I think he would be a great addition to the club. A wealth of experience and proven ability.


8.) 05 Oct 2016 14:08:30
Don't think your making a bad point w15, would help if you used a few full stops and paragraphs though! Hard to read as is.

Miller has always had an outstanding reputation as a coach.

Yet another sad piece of news as I learned today that we lost another member of the rangers family who everyone who goes to ibrox knows and will have seen as he was always for many many years a permanent fixture at the main entrance doors at ibrox, a true gentleman who'll be very sadly missed by all the one and only mr. peter jacobs, my sincere condolences to all peter's family and friends.

Only my opinion but I hope my fellow bears back to the hilt and stick by our management team of warbs and weir, it will come together guys, given time! I really rate and truly believe in our manager and I think we'll most definitely finish in the top 3 come may which is when and only when we should judge warbs and weir! let's all get right behind our club and have a little patience especially when you look at where we've been over the last 4 years!

Warburtonthefifteenth

1.) 27 Sep 2016 20:51:56
I think most fans of SPFL clubs feel the same: Warbs must stay.


2.) 27 Sep 2016 20:55:11
It was "most definatly challenging" then "most definitely finish in the top 2" not long ago W15 lol.


3.) 27 Sep 2016 20:23:06
dropping points on sat and losing the cup semi final, would you still back the management team?


4.) 27 Sep 2016 21:37:27
Poetic, be careful what you wish for. I remember us all shouting Strachan must stay when he had a bad start with your team and look what happened.


5.) 27 Sep 2016 22:20:34
Strachan had three bad games. His first three games. Warbs has been there for 15 months. Barely comparable.

I'm happy for him to continue- the guy is cracking under the pressure, big time.

Oh I forgot, the team is (still! ) gelling. Those two (! ) new starts on Sunday really cost you.


6.) 27 Sep 2016 22:40:55
Yes kaney 1983 I would still back our management team, said time and time again on here the time for reflection and judgement on warburton and weir is in may.


7.) 27 Sep 2016 23:27:05
Just to add my opinion to our defensive issue, we really do not know what Sendaros has in his locker? He has only played one competitive game and he was thrown in at the deep end totally, I know the guy is experienced BUT I think that we could still have a good CB on our hands as it seems to have been totally dismissed and we are no better off in that area! I think Warbs will have Sendaros in the defense with Wilson along side him. It just annoys me that we seem to have overlooked the fact that this guy could do a really good job for us but because he didn't perform at the piggery on his debut we're still up in arms about our defense? Hope to see the big man on Sat and see a solid performance, Also would like to add Bears that this team are crying out for a winger with a left foot! Hope we can bring someone in when Jan comes even a loan deal, if anybody knows was Winks a lefty? Heard we might be bringing Gedion back on loan?


8.) 27 Sep 2016 23:24:53
Kaney 1983, we are not all glory hunters, and as Warbs15 stated once the team settle and gel we WILL be a top 3 finish this season, just a pity some so called fellow fans don't have the patience!


9.) 28 Sep 2016 16:14:47
Rangers will Finnish 2nd this year, I have full faith in the gaffer and the squad, even if others are all too happy to get rid of them, remember it only takes a few good results to go up this league, we will come good.


10.) 28 Sep 2016 19:24:30
Well said Delboy, just wish some of our so called fellow
supporters would have the patience for the management / team, time will tell, too many of them think MW has a magic wand as well as the hat .
I for one most definately think we will finish in the top three and qualify for Europe .
Now! instead of slating me ( non believers ) I will happily
pay £100 to charity if we don't, a one to one bet . to first non believer, as this will give me great satisfaction taking it off you, if you pay up, my £100 will go to Erskine hospital, as I have said before have patience.


11.) 28 Sep 2016 23:41:24
Interesting, I had a top end meeting today and while we were talking business I could draw parallels. The common theme that everyone agreed was that it does not matter who good the Boss is, if the staff are of limited ability the Business will struggle.

We could have Alex Ferguson, (who I consider to be the best modern day manager that the UK has produced), and if you give him eleven also rans he will struggle to win things.

Unfortunately for Warburton that is exactly what he has been saddled with at Rangers, a poor captain that cannot lead the men on the park, (even though he is a decent quality full back), a number of centre backs that are either past their sell buy date or are just not of the right quality, a surfeit of central midfield players all for the same position, (and the majority of which are mediocre (, a winger that can't take tackles and a couple of strikers that couldn't score in a brothel! You give the guy two or three quality players in the spine of the team and he will win everything in Scotland!


12.) 28 Sep 2016 23:22:33
The biggest thing tat is missing is a Captain with leadership qualities!


13.) 28 Sep 2016 08:56:22
the biggest mistake Warburton made was not signing players with Scottish Premiership experience in the summer. 12 players brought in with only Hodson with any experience of playing in the league. As I've said before he could have bought Hemmings and Stewart from Dundee for less than he paid for Garner and you would be getting 2 players who have proved they can thrive in the top flight and score goals.

It was clear to all we have problems defensively yet he is hasn't addressed this and we continue to concede poor goals. We have issues all over the park and have struggled in every game in the league so far. Warburton is losing the plot and hasn't got a clue what to do. I feel there is even more pain to come and I dread the semi final as this could potentially be another skelping.

Well fellow bears the betfred league cup semi final draw has thrown up rangers v celtic at hampden in a months time, let's go and give a very good account of ourselves and what will be will be, let's embrace it nothing to be afraid of, just like our semi final win in april past let's show them the real glasgow rangers by turning up and playing well as a team, really looking forward to it, bring it on!

What's the script for tickets this time? Will they be on sale to general public etc. I'm on leave and will be back home for those dates!


3.) 22 Sep 2016 22:39:10
Tickets will not be on sale to general public. They will go to continuous credit scheme season ticket holders first then most likely do a draw for rest if season ticket holders. Supporters groups will get allocated some tickets too.


4.) 22 Sep 2016 22:46:42
Rafbob, the tickets won't get near public sale mate, its continuous credit scheme first and then a ballot amongst the rest of our season ticket holders.


5.) 23 Sep 2016 09:57:00

6.) 23 Sep 2016 10:41:54
Bit more positive this time for game against them players will be back for this game that we didn't have last time like Wilson holt and waggy windass and crooks should be fitter so here goes guys.

Wee-ecky, they said the same about big alex mcleish and he was a good rangers manager, imo there's a lot of similarities between alex mcleish and john hughes in their managerial styles,2 very similar characters!

As I stated earlier my big mate really rates big john (yogi) hughes as a good manager and really thinks he would make a good, future rangers manager and would want hughes to be considered for the rangers manager's job if anything did happen to warburton, I myself rate hughes and always have done although I'm more than happy with warbs and weir, a wee hypothetical question here to my fellow bears, how highly do you rate big yogi hughes as a manager and do you think he's rangers material as a future manager?

Colshygers, tommy wright is a decent manager and doing really well at st. johnstone but as I stated in op I rate our current management team and believe it's way too early to judge them now! One of my good mates wants big john (yogi) hughes as our next manager if anything were to happen to warbs, he's always rated big hughes and likes his style of football, he also thinks big yogi is very tactically sound, he has a point as big hughes is a good manager imo also although I'm more than happy with our manager and at the end of the season is when to judge him, get right behind him and the team for the full season! !

Some on here imo are being too harsh on our captain, just because lee wallace is going through a wee lull and not playing at his best just now doesn't make him a bad full back, some people think he's a robot and should play well every week, give the guy a break, his form will return, when wallace is at his best there's not a better left back in scotland than him imo! Some are far too quick to judge because a player has lost form, it happens to every player you know at some point in the season.

Robbieg69,the medicals are very thourough now mate, with scans and checks of bone structure etc, its not just a case because he's been training with us for 2 weeks that he doesn't need a medical because he looks fit, just doesn't work like that scans show up underlying problems.

A wee point MontyPieFan, you should never boo any player wearing the rangers jersey and that's my own honest opinion and old school! My late dad god bless him, always taught me everything rangers and why we should never boo 'one of our own', he also went everywhere watching his beloved rangers just like I've followed on doing right to the present date, 'your born a rangers fan', that's my thinking in it anyway!

Bluedie, there's one thing to have your opinion in wanting shot of joey barton at rangers which of course is fair enough but honestly mate, if you truly think barton is a dumpling then my friend I truly think your knowledge of a footballer when you see one could be written on the back of a postage stamp! Because immaterial if you want rid of him because of his conduct or not barton is without doubt a very good midfielder and always was!
