Anyone heard anything about the new away tops and when their meant to be released? With the season starting at the weekend, I would have thought the team would have these in reserve at this point. Noticed against Watford they turned out in white training tops.


1.) 04 Aug 2017 13:35:29
Sept sometime i was told in megastore


2.) 04 Aug 2017 14:30:29
I was in megastore last week and they're not put back to October


3.) 04 Aug 2017 14:58:43
SLO said October for home kits.

New Away/ Third top should be released September.


4.) 04 Aug 2017 16:44:20
Thought we were keeping Home Top for this Season and only introducing a new Away Top and a 3rd kit!
BTW what top is the Manky Mob going to use when they play Hibs at Easter Rd?
All their Tops are GREEN! I really cannot see any of their Kits being acceptable, does anyone else see this and agree and, what will be done about it?


5.) 04 Aug 2017 17:55:30
Andy who care's mateπŸ‘


6.) 04 Aug 2017 18:14:11
Andy, dear fellow, this is not your concern. Maybe we can release a fourth kit, just to help you sleep, all that green n white must be giving you the fear.


7.) 04 Aug 2017 18:44:20
Well that's the matter closed then and imo thank god as I really was concerned and the thought of it wouldn't go away hence why I thought I would bring it up but thanks to the powers that be I can rest.


8.) 04 Aug 2017 19:07:52
"Not your concern" coming from a Timothy on a rangers thread. Oh the irony!


9.) 04 Aug 2017 21:14:44
100% BLUE airus. Honesty hurts. Been called a lot of things, DONE a lot of things but that DOES rip ma knittin. Demeanor is what seperates us from the bottom dwellers and I can assure you I do not dwell!


10.) 04 Aug 2017 21:52:01
Alrus blue, I couldn't have put it any better myself lol


11.) 04 Aug 2017 22:10:03
Heres a wee idea, how about hibs wear their very dark kit (black) and Celtic wear their very bright kit (lumo green) . Just to settle your minds at rest.


12.) 05 Aug 2017 00:26:00
So hibs are going to wear an away too at home just to facilitate Celtic and the safety designers that made all strips green. Get a grip of yourself!


13.) 05 Aug 2017 07:36:02
Get a grip you say😁😁😁, eh yes and we shall do the same at Celtic park. Both clubs get along just swell, so i'm sure we will come to an agreement, something your club won't know anything about, its called compromise, plus it promotes the new away kits doesn't it, good business sense another thing your club lacks. This Rangers thread seems to be all about Celtic Alrus, wouldn't you agree. Oh the irony.


14.) 05 Aug 2017 09:58:48
Bhampot you talk total rubbish. All clubs and it's supporters know of what kits are available to them. Do you really think a team needs to wear them so the support know their available to buy? It's called marketing. something done in the process of selling a product. If you genuinely think because hibs are the junior Tims that they'll happily succumb and wear away jersey, making Celtic look superior to them at their own ground. then I'm afraid you've drunk in too much Celtic invincibles hype. It's pure arrogance for your club to release three strips all of the same colour.


15.) 05 Aug 2017 11:01:32
The invincibles hype?, what hype. It happened. Weve both worn away kits in matches before, what's the issue. Marketing never stops either, you have to be seen to play in the kit too, this creates an oppertunity doesn't it. why on earth did scotland and england have to wear away kits when playing each other, it was ok for over 100 years.


16.) 05 Aug 2017 11:57:48
Invincible hype as in you now think Celtic are far and above superior. Untouchable. Rosenberg didn't seem too feart and I think you'll find it not so easy this season. All teams want to play in home tops at their ground. This is common sense. That's why it's called a HOME top.


17.) 05 Aug 2017 13:22:09
Its commonplace for clubs to wear new away and 3rd kits at home when there's no real need to, and i'd really like to think that this season will be more competitive on all fronts from all clubs. So what your suffering from is an inferiority complex, which is understandable.


18.) 05 Aug 2017 13:57:52
Inferiority complex (Pfft) coming from a Tim where most exude a persecution complex is laughable. It's in your genes. Cheerio!


19.) 05 Aug 2017 14:43:38
Iv never had a persicution complex, i think your generalising and assuming were all irish and republican or that we have been roundly shafted by the underhandedness of Scottish football. I think we all know what you would like to say but cant. My genes exude those of an open minded decent human being, i treat others how i like to be treated, that's fair. i look down on cheating and cheaters, i look down on bigots and bigotry and i laugh at them squirming in a manky gutter, trying to hold there tongue in fear their true feelings being outed. Catch ye!


20.) 05 Aug 2017 16:27:30
Is that why your on a rangers thread then ya fud? If not for bigoted reasons and to antagonise fans of your opposition team. What other reason would there be. You've really got no logical way of looking at anything. No joined up thinking. Why not seek the company of your own instead of trying to elude to myself (us) being bigots and cheats. What's up? Your own think you talk mince also. Bolt!


21.) 05 Aug 2017 16:47:39
Whats bigoted about going on a Rangers page to answer a question about Celtics away kits πŸ˜πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚? None, logical yes? . If your defense is to cry bigot, then at least make sure there's bigotry involved, ya fud. I keep good company with various people of all walks of life, not small minded frustrated pondlife like you. I can feel your rage building, you better go scream into an empty box. Catch ye


22.) 05 Aug 2017 17:09:19
Rage - please, it takes far smarter and far more astute than the likes of you pal to get any rise from me. If you say your not on this thread to antagonise, berate or through bigoted reasons then frankly your incapable of being honest with yourself. Why would you be here? Why? If I were on your thread then I'd have to ask myself that now wouldn't I!

Go look up 'irony' or 'hypocrisy' in the dictionary. Then go back over what you've previously written in this thread. You contradict yourself time and again, over and over and then strive for the higher ground in an attempt the degrade and label the other parties. See your previous posts. Some education or professional help is required Bham. Get some!

Chris Sutton calling Dave King childish. Man, that guy can't even see the hypocrisy of an article like this comping from him!

Chris you've been banging on about Dunfermline lying down for over ten years now. It's moulded your whole outlook even into punditry. Now your trying to bang the drum of disrespect toward the rest of the SPFL teams. Gees peace and dry your eyes.


1.) 26 Jun 2017 10:24:37
Who cares what Chris Sutton and the rest are saying we they will see the results on the pitch looking forward to this season.


2.) 26 Jun 2017 10:39:00
I think they both put their feet in it too often. King is obviously rabble rousing, but I would prefer the talking to get done on the pitch. You are absolutely spot on about the hypocrisy of that twat Sutton though.

Warburton mentions yesterday in his pressers that he was down south during the week meeting a coach, about a player he was interested in signing for next season. Makes you wonder if he was he down being interviewed for the Forrest job or not?

Maybe their owner having appointed 5 managers since taking over in 2015 was the one that wasn't willing to pay the 1million compensation to Rangers, should the management team want to move on. This prompted MW to send the agent to RFC board to negotiate the release, if they resigned not prompting personal compensation.

I think the agent working on behalf of MW, DW and FM has made a real hash of these negotiations. Can only hope the board have it in writing or minutes as this could get messy.

For new boss I'd take McLeish with Ferguson as assistant temporarily, assessing it until the end of season. If it works great, if not go for Michael Laudrup.


1.) 11 Feb 2017 12:09:08
@akrus blue - why the hell would M Laudrop come to Rangers? Club in turmoil, no money and unrealistic ambitions from the fans.


2.) 11 Feb 2017 12:18:30
The hull boss only contract till the end of season I'd take him


3.) 11 Feb 2017 12:39:22
UnionJack

It's an aspirational choice granted, however the board is going to have to make money available to the new manager. Whoever that is, is going to have to negotiate the terms and budget involved. Laudrup is currently managing a Quattri team. Plenty money but hardly an aspirational club that going to do anything in Europe.

Why is it that many fans think that now we're in the top league we should immediately be able to compete and be back to pre 2012 form. A lot of us need to let go of nostalgia abd take a reality and the levels we used to perform to, giving the management team time to get the recipie right. We have a young team and relatively inexperienced when it comes to the speed and intensity of Scottish football. I do agree that we could be more adaptive in our formations and systems to encounter all challenges but it will come good. Changing manager will only further cause more instability at the club and delay our progress. Put it this way it's the same in all walks of life, when we start a new job we are not expected to hit the ground running immediately, we are all given time to adapt and grow. 11 new players in. They need their chance!


1.) 27 Sep 2016 06:33:23
You obviously did not hear Warburton, King and Miller come out and talk about how we had a squad capable of challenging for the league and that we could compete with Celtic.

Perhaps if they had all kept their powder dry then the fans would not have thought we would compete this season.


2.) 27 Sep 2016 07:28:21
Challenge doesn't mean win.


3.) 27 Sep 2016 08:22:09
Do you think we're challenging RossW1995?


4.) 27 Sep 2016 09:19:33
Don't you think, given our budget, we should be able to beat teams like Hamilton, Killie and Ross County?

9 points out of 21 and no win in 4 games in unacceptable!


5.) 27 Sep 2016 10:16:25
I believe Kenny miller said we were better than Celtic and that the aim was to win the league.

Dave king said our objective is to compete for the title this season.

Mark Warburton said rangers have enough quality to challenge Celtic for the title.

It does not matter if you personally believe them, the point I am making is Warburton, King and Miller only have themselves to blame for the fans believing we would be challenging for the title. So don't blame the fans who thought we were going to challenge for the league, blame the people who said we would.


6.) 27 Sep 2016 12:24:54
Boss your correct mate they did say that but let's be honest they are not going to say anything else before a ball was kicked. Season tickets had to be sold mate. Simples.


7.) 27 Sep 2016 12:29:15
what do you want them to say? that we are not good enough? that celtic are far better? that's a sure fire way not to get the players up for it.


8.) 27 Sep 2016 13:31:11
You are out of step with reality in respect of 'New jobs'! When you are headhunted into a Company, (especially one with problems), you are not only expected to hit the road running but in a relatively short space of time you are expected to make a major improvement in the Companies bottom line and then build on that. The same is true when you go into a Company that is in development mode.

In a turnaround situation you have a wide range of objectives from replacing non performers to growing the top line and cutting expenses and you need to get it right first time in terms of targeting who you will keep and who you bring in. (This generally means having a budget for new hires and, in case of need a budget for redundancies) .

If I attempt to draw parallels then in year one the new manager exceeded expectations by winning promotion and getting to a major cup final. The people that he brought in to help him do the job certainly improved the 'business'. So in year two he is expected to build on that but for me that is where the comparison with business ends. In business you bring in a team that you know with some confidence will deliver your business plan objectively for the next 3 to 5 years.

Budgets are already agreed based on financial achievements. Warburton's budget could not be determined by that for two reasons,

(i) there is little financial benefit in the short term in moving to the Scottish Premier Division from the Championship for Rangers, (since they generally secure high Home Gates and the only increase in income in the short term comes from price increases) .

(ii) Warburton did not have the financial support of the Board to build a team to win the Championship that could progress to be in the top 2 or 3 in the Premiership; that, rightly or wrongly had to be deferred until Summer 2016).

Warburton has to be seen as being successful in securing the two Accrington Boys but the fact is that to put a team on the pitch that could challenge Celtic and be confident of a top two finish significant investment was required. This was not forthcoming.

So if you want to draw a comparison with business, having turned the Company round, the guy in charge of operations was not given the budget to take the Company to the next level and as a result it stagnated. In Warburton's case we will never know whether he saw Hill, Barton, Krancjar and Senderos as his preferred choices or even second choices. I suspect it is highly unlikely.

What is more, he has been let down by players that performed to a reasonable level in the lower league but are struggling for whatever reason in the slightly better top league. Personally I have serious doubts about the personnel that the manager has at his disposal including all of the aforementioned, his two centre backs, Wallace, (in respect of his leadership qualities), new acquisitions, Rossiter, Crooks and Windass in terms of their fitness and McKay in terms of his ability to cope with the step up.

Warburton deserves time, assuming that he can get eleven fit players and the funds to bring in the players that he really needed in the summer and that included a leader!


9.) 27 Sep 2016 13:53:19
boss hogg got to agree with cee and lance mate what is it u expected to come out of the mouths of rangers players .
"we would be happy to finish top half of the table this season!

fans would have gone aff their nut .
plus you have got to believe that when u play for a team like rangers or celtic .

if u don't then u don't get a game.


10.) 27 Sep 2016 17:07:15
I totally understand why it was said but my point still stands, if people at the top of our club are saying these thongs publicly, then they need to accept it will raise fans expectations and if they don't deliver they will come under pressure.

Surely it would have been more sensible to say - it is going to be extremely difficult to catch Celtic but we will try our best. But our main aim this season is to consolidate our place in the SPFL and to get back into Europe. By doing this fans wouldn't have felt lied to and our fan's expectations would have been more realistic. Not only that the manager, players and Dave king would be under less pressure right now.


11.) 28 Sep 2016 23:21:00
It is the manager's job to motivate the players and to get the support onside so I can fully understand his comments. It is the Chairman's job to provide the resources to support the Manager. King has been full of hot air for a long time, if anyone is to blame for filling the support with the belief that we would finish top two and would have the players to do so, it was him. For me he is just another David Murray! Full of moonbeams and empty promises. As a Chairman you don't say that you are going to front end load the funds to allow the manager to bring in the quality needed and then end up where your 'Marquee signings are three geriatric freebies!

Warburton can only use the tools he has been given and I doubt that Walter Smith would have done any better with some of the players that we now have at the club.


 

 

23 Sep 2015 08:50:46
Disappointing result last night but maybe everyone should calm down and look at it for a minute.

We were caught out at the back plain and simple. We have enough in defence for the championship but Wilson is being caught out pace wise quite often now. The defence coming up to support the midfield is leaving too much distance for them to cover on the counter attack. A tactic that all teams we play now will now adopt. They have to sit deeper or drop Wilson for Ball.

Anyway, maybe last night had to happen. We were all getting a little carried away with how good we have been. The team has hit a lull over the last few games scoring less and now defeated. These players hadn't tasted defeat until now and possibly its a good thing that they have. They seem like a tight knit group and play for the full 90 mins. Look at the pressure applied in the last half hour last night. let's give them the benefit of the doubt and look at the positives rather than negatives. We are on the way back and better this happened in League Cup rather than Scottish Cup. In Warburton we trust.


1.) 23 Sep 2015 10:30:18
I agree airus blue. As I've said before and others too, there was no way we were going to go throughout the entire season without losing or drawing games. Even in our nine-in-a-row years we lost games! Not getting the chance to see many games as I live on the south coast of England, I had avidly read all the reports in newspapers and comments on here and was looking forward to the game. I was disappointed. St. Johnstone were nothing special though they did win the Scottish Cup last season. The third goal killed any chance of coming back. Had we scored that goal early in the second half then it would have been a different story. I thought that when we went forward we did so quickly and with pace. Outstanding player for me was Waghorn. Defence looks shaky in the middle and don't fancy the goalkeeper. I like Tavernier and Wallace. I'd have played Barrie Mackay from the start and maybe now it is time to give Shiels, Ball, Hardie and Aird a run. No need to panic though - I'd rather be out of the cups and win the league at a canter. Hearts' bubble has burst in the SPL with three straight defeats so they are beginning to find it hard to adjust to the higher level.


2.) 23 Sep 2015 11:15:42
U can't just ignore the negatives of which there were plenty. How many great saves did their keeper make? Face it we were comfortably beaten by an average team. That performance is where we are at the moment and there is still a big gap between us and average premiership sides let alone the Celtics and Aberdeens


3.) 23 Sep 2015 13:12:18
Who said there wasn't negatives...what I am saying is were in a process of becoming the better team that we want to be. It can't happen over night and has only been three months since this team was assembled. We are ahead of plan but have a ways to go yet to be able to compete.


4.) 23 Sep 2015 17:05:54
Alrus, it sounds to me your towing the warburton party line, the way the team is set up is the problem, and I think he didn't show st Johnstone the respect they were due. A well drilled team, and let's face it, are not known for scoring lots of goals.

I think it's pretty telling that we signed again with 32Red again for the coming season. We realistically couldn't have went anywhere else due to the last seasons home kits being printed with their logo and now being used for this coming season.
I'm sure they didn't divulge the intention to use the current home kit to 323 Red mind, when negotiating.

I'd have preferred a completely new design myself and consign all things last season to the past. But at least we can buy the new gear again. A huge positive. Truly fantastic job by Mr King and the other board members and I think people should now get off their backs and realise the job the've done. Well done to the fans for sticking to your guns as well throughout the embargo.

That's why Cagliari released a statement prior to Alves thing which said he'd been released. It's not mentioned a fee anywhere apart from in the media. Honestly do some not realise after all this time how transfer window works? I'll guarantee signing announcements are made on or after friday the 9th June.
