I was talking to a friend today who usually gets good info and he told me we have opened up dialogue with HJK regarding the young striker that impressed against us in the friendly match. We are also keen on the sitting midfielder but with our current dm being filled will keep tabs on him over next 6 to 12 montgs.


1.) 23 Feb 2019 19:25:40
They don't see the forward as an out and out striker more the number 10 type float round about morelos.

2.) 24 Feb 2019 12:10:05
He was a cracking prospect - think only 18/ 19 as well. Stood out like a sore thumb.

3.) 24 Feb 2019 15:27:14
Eetu Vertainen. Outsanding against us. Well known Rangers site was advocating us making a move for him. Maybe Stevie listened?

4.) 24 Feb 2019 21:12:31
He has everything and right age to. Could emulate morelos coming improving and going for big profit. Would also put another friendly into the deal. Johansan seems to rate the players in Finland highly. Could be worth taking a look at that market.



27 Jan 2019 20:16:16
Is there any interest in craig hallket? Watched the game and for most of it he looked a solid CB. In my opinion i think he would be solid reliable back up for next season replace mcaulay.


1.) 27 Jan 2019 21:33:45
Called it a while ago, looked assured. No idea why we are developing worrell who has no intentions of staying- this lad could be picked up cheaply and would instantly become our best defender. Only issue is he is right sided as is goldson.

2.) 27 Jan 2019 22:22:49
He didn't make the grade, that's why they let him go.

3.) 27 Jan 2019 22:49:22
He was marking Morelos for long spells today and Morelos didn't give him a minutes peace (Morelos was brilliant) yet still he was very Impressive and kept his cool, this guy would be a great signing IMO.

4.) 27 Jan 2019 22:57:48
Didn’t make the grade 🤔 - he was a young lad who went elsewhere to gain first team experience and game time. Was the best defender on the pitch today - looked assured and wasn’t slow barking orders at all around him.

5.) 28 Jan 2019 07:46:48
Didn't Hallket give the ball away and this led to Rangers' 3rd goal?

6.) 28 Jan 2019 09:24:58
I agree that Halkett would be good addition for next season when Worral goes back and McAuley will be out of contract. Think he would be good cover for Goldson and Katic.
He was immense in last 2 home games against both halves of old firm when neither managed to score.
Great in the air, solid in the tackle and physically strong with decent pace think he’s perfect fit.

7.) 28 Jan 2019 10:32:58

Yes he did. What’s your point? I can’t recall a central defender in world football not giving the ball away. Unless you can name one who has never given the ball away?

8.) 28 Jan 2019 15:06:47
Cullin he chose to leave to protect his career and develop as a player. His decision has proved right.

9.) 29 Jan 2019 00:13:42
bellshilllad he didn't choose to leave we released him, now he's found his real level at Livvi.



27 Jan 2019 10:27:56
Story out this morning that tav is target for Southampton. £8. Million was figure quoted. Personally i would take it and buy a couple defenders. A RB &CB.


1.) 27 Jan 2019 11:10:37
I’d take 8m, we have an excellent RB in Jon Flannigan already at the club. I believe if given game time on his favourite position he would thrive.

2.) 27 Jan 2019 11:14:15
If true £8 million is good price. Sell. Simple economics :)

3.) 27 Jan 2019 11:27:21
£8m? Take the money mate.
I'm sure the American guy we're bringing in is a RB? A creative midfielder who knows where the net is would be nice.

4.) 27 Jan 2019 11:52:28
8m not been offerd it was stevie g who said if they offer about 8m for tav then we might talk.

5.) 27 Jan 2019 12:13:32
£8m is close but we would need to invest the money in this window, 1 or 2 players, if the business can’t be done then keep what we’ve got. Personally I think we could squeeze £10m from an EPL team, they have money to burn and are desperate to stay in the league. Remember this is the team that squeezed £75m for van Dyke by standing firm.

6.) 27 Jan 2019 12:44:05
If £8m is being offered I’ll give him a lift myself.

7.) 27 Jan 2019 13:19:46
we have an excellent RB in flanagan.

jesus wept

i appreciate the lad is playing on wrong side of the park but excellent . never in a million years

I’m a big tav fan and whilst i appreciate every player has a price, I think if we sell our captn we won’t realise how integral he is to our play till he’s gone.

8.) 27 Jan 2019 13:46:15
Trev I personally wouldn't have him as captain. My personal preference would be Ryan jack. Would definitely take 8 for home. Could play candias at RB. Just as good if not better going forward and probably just as good a defender.

9.) 27 Jan 2019 13:52:33
Agree with Trev, Tav has defensive frailties but he is superb going forward and has been since he came, add that to the fact that he is fit almost every single game (how many can we say that about? ) then we have to keep him. If silly money comes in then we asses the offer but it has to be crazy money, and we have to have an opportunity to spend it!

10.) 27 Jan 2019 14:25:44
I'm totally in agreement with Trev and wee_bear! Unless its really crazy money that southampton offer for tav, then he stays with us as far as i'm concerned! Undoubtedly, i agree he isn't the best defender but brings so much to our right hand side, going forward! We miss him badly offensively, when he's not playing, that's fact! Sick and tired of all these tav haters on here! He has become the whipping boy on here and i said a good few weeks ago, we will only realise what we've got with tav and what he brings to our team, when he's not there! Then the tav haters will be greeting even more! Wish they would take a day aff, this continual tav bashing! Get behind the team and the captain!

11.) 27 Jan 2019 14:37:00
Look where the second goal came from on V Kilmarnock and this is a regular feature of our play. I’d take £2m tommorrow. There is a good reason he did not make it at Newcastle as he does not have the concentration levels to be a top player. It’s a shame because he has great touch but is no defender.

12.) 27 Jan 2019 14:56:54
Take the money and run he can't defend and his delivery is awful.

13.) 27 Jan 2019 15:40:56
Flanagan and excellent aren't 2 words that should ever be in a sentence together.

14.) 27 Jan 2019 19:21:22
Let’s get rid of him! 14 assists 9 goals in 38 games this season from right back aye his delivery must be terrible 😂 what do people on here expect! By the way his defending has improved dramatically since Gerrard and Co arrived! Be careful what you wish for!

15.) 27 Jan 2019 19:50:10
It's £800k that's been offered.

16.) 27 Jan 2019 20:41:05
Aye for that coo lustig that kent tore a new a**e for, in the last old firm game! Philtim88,i heard when lustig came in at half time in the old firm game, he was that confused by the roasting he got from kent,
that he said to brenda rodgers, he didn't know if he was michael lustig or michael caine! 😂😂.

17.) 27 Jan 2019 22:25:03
Supercooper in all honesty I would carry lustig all the way back to Sweden if aik come in for him.

18.) 28 Jan 2019 08:25:38
If my memory serves me correctly, killys 2nd goal came from a slack pass from Kent, then poor defending by McCauley.

Brilliant how tav gets the blame for that.

19.) 28 Jan 2019 09:29:26
Tav gets a raw deal off us I think.
Granted he’s not Captain material and makes mistakes defensively but not as frequently as he used to.
He creates chances and links play well with Candeias.
If we are offered decent money in summer then fair enough it’s worth considering but I wouldn’t like to lose him this week if I’m honest.

20.) 28 Jan 2019 10:36:20
Super cooper

Why are you being meladramtic? Tav haters? Some people don’t rate him doesn’t mean they hate him. Their giving an opinion just as you are. If your sick and tired of reading those comments the solution is simple don’t read them.

21.) 29 Jan 2019 00:07:14
SG confirms he has been contacted by Southampton who say they do not wish to sign Tav.



23 Jan 2019 21:42:21
This new formation doesn't work. There is no creativity in midfield. Kent floating doesn't work he is a wide player not a no.10. that's the second time i have saw the formation and it hasn't worked. They look a worse team than finished last year so well. Defoe looks good in the box but offers little outside it.


1.) 23 Jan 2019 22:14:29
He has a big choice to make about the starting 11. Marelos over Defoe for me, but £65k a week to sit on the bench? Madness. And the signings even Sutton got stuck into done the deeds for them. Hate to say it but game over.

2.) 23 Jan 2019 23:14:00
celtic signings popped up against a st. mirren team on 12 points! we played Kilmarnock who were 3rd and also beat celtic at home. People slating players and saying gerrard out is embarrassing. Its not game over there is 53 points to play for and i guarantee you celtic will slip up again.

3.) 24 jan 2019 16:33:12
eastcoastblue, defoe is not on £65k a week and is not even on half of that!

4.) 24 Jan 2019 21:42:57
He's getting around 25k a week at Rangers Still it could've been money better spent if you ask me Why not take a punt on Ryan Hardie?!



08 Jan 2019 22:38:48
Just saw herrera is gone. Permanent deal back to mexico.


1.) 08 Jan 2019 22:52:38
Fingers crossed. Now to get rid of Pena too.

2.) 08 Jan 2019 22:57:57
Just 6 month loan deal.

3.) 08 Jan 2019 23:13:59
Feel sorry for the big guy. He did absolutely nothing to disgrace the jersey, but nothing to enhance our journey.

It was Pedro's lack of ability that put him and the club in a difficult situation.

I hope he starts scoring for fun.

4.) 09 Jan 2019 00:23:53
coolatballet - scoring? He's a centre half! Some of our fans!

5.) 09 Jan 2019 02:30:24
If same Herrera I'm thinking of, he is certainly no centre half. Although to be fair he didn't look much of a striker either.

6.) 09 Jan 2019 05:08:33
🤣 Asayouth, I really hope that's a very bad joke about how terrible a striker he was! Lol.

7.) 09 Jan 2019 05:48:45
Says he's away on a seasons loan to nexna in mexico, so not a permanant forgot he was still on the books, he's on twenty grand a week pity we couldnt, let him go for good, or come to an arrangment with him him, massive earner who will never wear the strip again.

8.) 09 Jan 2019 09:47:54
His contract is up at the end of the season.

9.) 09 Jan 2019 09:59:33
End of next season.

10.) 09 Jan 2019 13:21:08
To be fair, Herrera was never a goalscorer, more a big bustling target man who works hard, gets on the end of flick ons and holds the ball up and I think he did that for us it's just the fact that we have better players now it would be hard to find a place for him.

11.) 09 Jan 2019 13:48:10
Yeah Herrera and Pena are reportedly on big wages so we need to get both of them out on loan, or a permanent transfer.
Herrera is contracted to us until the end of this season anybody know when Penas contract ends.

12.) 09 Jan 2019 14:27:25
Copland both contracted to summer 2020.

13.) 09 Jan 2019 15:01:56
Cheers jboy21.

14.) 09 Jan 2019 16:39:39
FU, Hererra literally never done any of those things for us👍. The sooner him and pena are off the books the better. Complete waste of nearly 5mil👍.

15.) 09 Jan 2019 17:44:03
lol what a plank of wood a centre half lol maybe played like a centre half but was definitely a striker.

16.) 09 Jan 2019 19:15:32
queens11, I'll leave out the sarcasm in future - I was alluding to his bulk, his snail-like pace and his lack of goals, more suited to a centre half.

Good to see us signing young talent from England with the 16 year old striker signing from chelsea. Heres hoping he adds to the host of young talent coming through and we start producing our own talent instead of buying it in.
Welcome to the rangers family.


1.) 04 Feb 2019 19:10:51
I can't believe billy gilmour was allowed to leave ibrox. They should have offered him better contract terms he would prob be fighting for a first team slot by now.

2.) 04 Feb 2019 20:37:27
The offer Billy Gilmour was given at his age was life changing and we could never have matched it and hopefully he will be back with us one day 🇬🇧.

3.) 04 Feb 2019 21:24:14
Billy Gilmour will be on £20k - £25k a week!

4.) 04 Feb 2019 21:27:10
6k per week at 16 - lad is a talent but worried he won’t develop until early 20’s, similar to the same problem lindgard had at man Utd . Will be interesting to see how Chelsea develop him or will he become another loan player.

5.) 04 Feb 2019 22:43:57
Agree Davis hasn't exactly set the heather on fire - but still a good guy to have around. The younger guys can learn from and until he gets up to full match fitness he can be a good guy to have on the bench with plenty of experience on how to see games out.

6.) 04 Feb 2019 23:10:02
Gers 09 i'm sure i read or heard that chelsea have 250m of talent on loan so thier younger playets aren't really getting a chance.

{Ed039's Note - Chelsea have a whole department dedicated to keeping an eye on the talent they have on loan and looking after them)

7.) 04 Feb 2019 23:31:24
McCrorie turning into Gerrard! Come on, he always puts in a 100% and tackles fine, but his passing is very poor at times - quite often out of the park, Main part of the game he needs to work on.



20 Jan 2019 16:24:58
Was watching a stream of match today and thought there were a few players from hjk we could be having a look at. The CF that scored and sitting 22 year old CM being 2 that impressed. Should be a market we should be looking at. Not big fees or wages and morelos has definitely been a huge success. Any rumours coming out after today?


1.) 20 Jan 2019 17:34:14
Bellshill, I was sitting at the game saying that.
Good young tidy footballers in their squad today.
Me personally liked the big number 36 for them.
As you said I don't think they'd cost the earth and they looked very capable playing in front of half full ibrox.

2.) 20 Jan 2019 20:24:35
Yup - thought their no 36 was a decent player - some nice touches.

3.) 20 Jan 2019 23:00:58
agree bellshill the CM no 22 looked the part

good on the ball very mobile and strong.

4.) 21 Jan 2019 19:54:38
Andy, agree slightly, remember no tackles in ninety minutes, however, may be worth a wee look at. Couple of them looked good.

5.) 21 Jan 2019 21:46:22
Can’t understand fuss about Morelos. He has yet to score against any team of decent standard. He’s overrated that’s why no clubs are in for him.

6.) 22 Jan 2019 05:57:44
He's by far better than any striker currently at celtic park, philtim88!
You guys paid £9million for edouard,
who quite simply ain't in fredo morelos's league pal! Even your diehard strikers of yonder years ie.
frank mcavennie and chris mutton have said as much! Just watch how far fredo goes in the game philtim88!



19 Jan 2019 09:58:57
Read on news now we are meant to be paying 65k a week for defoe. If this is true i think the board need to rethink transfer policy. We could have got 2 good quality younger players in for that kind of money.


1.) 19 Jan 2019 10:33:13
Listen this is a push . we have a glimmer of hope . although I do think Brenda’s not happy and might leave soon. However o for one vackvthe board 100% to stop the manks railroading to ten.

2.) 19 Jan 2019 10:35:06
Fake News.

3.) 19 Jan 2019 10:39:58
there is no way we are paying 65k a week for defoe and news now is 99.9% garbage.

4.) 19 Jan 2019 10:40:00
If we are paying that kind of wage then we must have sum serious financial backing from our investors.
The signing of Defoe and Davis certainly means we are going go for the title and a couple of younger players mite not provide what Davis and Defoe will to the team.
This is a high risk move by the club if wages are true but maybe the club think the rewards outweigh the risk.
Us fans would be over the moon if we won the league this season and stopping them winning the league then the club would also get a shot at trying to get in the champions league and if achieved the financial rewards but be very rewarding for the club.

5.) 19 Jan 2019 11:54:27
Who says? The DR, aye their always accurate with their garble, especially when it comes to us.

6.) 19 Jan 2019 14:01:46
I feel like our fans need a daily reminder not to pay any attention to the tabloids and their sensationalist lies.

7.) 19 Jan 2019 14:13:35
When there is a feel good vibe around our club, top signings coming in, beating that lot in our last game, the press can't help but try and invent some crap to get a wee dig in. wouldn't listen to a word they say.

8.) 19 Jan 2019 16:03:02
We’re contributing £28k to Defoe’s weekly wage.

9.) 19 Jan 2019 17:16:12
Who told you that, Bankie, his agent? The player? His lawyer? The club's chief executive? Tell us your unimpeachable source.

10.) 19 Jan 2019 22:58:37
Asayouth are you a mhanky? all you do is criticise fellow bears having a pop at everyone who posts - very weird indeed.



07 Jan 2019 13:13:52
Hardie has returned to the club for tenerife camp. Not sure about this one. Is this just to work with Defoe or is it because we are worried about morelos going? Think loan move was great for him playing, scoring and getting his swagger.


1.) 07 Jan 2019 13:51:47
Just read morelos flying to tenerife from colombia. Panic over. for now.

2.) 07 Jan 2019 14:53:03
It's so that the manager can further assess him before making a decision on his future, nothing more, nothing less.

3.) 07 Jan 2019 17:03:38
As someone mentioned below, we will be taking a look at hardie because if morelos does go then we will have defoe, lafferty and hardie. If morelos doesn't leave then I would imagine hardie would go back to livi. 👍.

4.) 07 Jan 2019 17:59:00
Hardie was injured when Stevie G took over, he’s taking him along to have a proper look at him, however, Livi are keen to keep him and he’s wanting game time so I expect him to go back out on loan after Tenerife. It’s win win for everyone.

5.) 08 Jan 2019 07:23:28
I'd rather keep Hardie and get rid of Lafferty.



29 Dec 2018 19:04:30
I would like to see us move for cochrane the youngster from hearts. Saw him a few times and think he has huge potential. can't see him costing the world either.

Dorrans would keep hold of at least for 6 months after fit. He has been injured most of the season but still turns up to every game. Would give him another chance as long as the legs are still there.

Clear second and within 6 points of celtic and win cup for me would be decent season. I would be expecting to win league and at least 1 cup next year with group stages in Europe too. We are rebuilding under yet another manager. SG is young for a manager and still learning but I'm hoping we kick on next season. Think jones will make a difference with his more direct approach.

I agree with the need for a strong dominant CB but mccrorie isn't the answer. Katic is young and still learning but given time and patience could be a strong CB. Possible part of a back 3. Him goldson and strong dominant CB in between them. Like gough or butcher type. Would have mccrorie, kamara and jack as a central midfield 3 just leaves wingers and strike options.

I think we get Davis up to speed consistency will come. Like Jack said during press conference we need to go on a run. Need a different formation if SG want to play 2 up top.
