The biggest disappointment in recent weeks is we have no backbone, right from the top. To succeed we must tackle the problems, but from dk down everybody covers their butt, or tries to, they do not admit where they are lacking.

Our team have a few good players, and if organised correctly could be a reasonable team. However, to compete we need backbone not fickle promises, we need honesty and stability. We do not need the promise of false dawns when it comes to season ticket renewal.

Surely if the "supposed" bankers of our club should put up, say £20m and ask us to match it. Then we would have a platform to move forward. Forget these silly loans, as it will get to the stage that we will have no real assets but will end up in "murrayland". i.e. nobody knows who owns what.

Anyone that has been in business knows about juggling and snowballing accounts, with murray being instrumental in our demise by using these tactics. Just have a good look at limited liability companies that went down the swanny and he stilled smelled of roses.
Our club is rotten to the core and will struggle to re-group.

Hi Billy hope you are well
One problem with your theory 'our so called bankers' are Close Brothers and for their £20m they would want back at least £25-£28m. Their rates are Wonga like.

{Ed001's Note - Wonga's rates are over 1000% per annum. If you were borrowing at Wonga like rates, you would be repaying over £250-£280m after a year.}

All the gossip I have heard on Gers loan deals was that they are interest free loans, or is that more guff from the directors. By the way how much does the board sponge off the club in salaries, would like to know the truth.



16 Apr 2017 14:52:25
McKay must be on the same ship out as Waghorn and O'Halloran.
Kenny Miller MUST be a player/ coach next year, but I am sure our new manager will give us a platform to move forward, assuming he has the necessary backing.


1.) 16 Apr 2017 19:16:09
Totally agree about McKay and o'halloran, but I think the gaffer likes waggy, if he gets his head down and starts scoring again he could be here next year

2.) 16 Apr 2017 19:20:09
Billyb, think you have been MOH's biggest fan and supporter all season. Good for you for changing your opinion. So disappointed in his apparent "could not care less" attitude.

3.) 17 Apr 2017 12:26:33
McKays disrespect for the jersey on Saturday was the last straw for me. He never sprinted once in the first half. He couldn't care less. So glad pedro saw that. Bye bye Barrie

Credit goes to Waghorn for knuckling down and giving it 100% on Saturday. He got stuck in and at least tried. However, he's just not Rangers quality and I won't be the least bit upset if he leaves. Best of luck to him if that is the case.

4.) 17 Apr 2017 17:26:54
Why do so many posts suggest Kenny Miller as a coach?
What is this based on?



28 Feb 2017 01:44:17
Any choice of manager and/ or dof will be dictated by cash. Dk can give "whatever" but he is not in a position to put our club on the straight and narrow. What is the betting there will be no appointments in the next couple of months?


1.) 28 Feb 2017 06:30:05
We'd also need to pay two salaries for a director of football and a coach so gives you an idea of the calibre we're probably looking at

2.) 28 Feb 2017 09:13:18
What are you willing to wager billy? I reckon we'll have at least one appointment announced by this time next week

3.) 28 Feb 2017 21:50:28
BR 65 i will wager what ever amount you want. There will be no appointment by this time next week. How much do you want to lay out?



15 Feb 2017 20:42:44
Murty is manager to the end of the season, I'm led to believe! Don't shoot the manager.


1.) 15 Feb 2017 21:05:11
big eck 14 to 1 on with bookies murty 5to2-de-boer 8to1

2.) 15 Feb 2017 23:36:57
That's a risky move - I don't get it - he's got no experience at this level - probably won't make top 3 and the sheep are now on fire!



16 Nov 2014 17:46:36
Murray's £1 sale to whyte did NOT include Ibrox and Auchenhowie.


1.) Hi Billyb

If you are correct and I am not on here to question your reasons for stating this.

Then the share issue from Green and co must be looked into with afine tooth combe.

If they were listing assets that did not belong in the share offer the police will have to make arrests for fraud.

But if SDM does own the assets he would have said so by now.

Tune in to next weeks excitng installment of the con of the century!!!!!!!!


2.) Billy B can't believe that mate we all know CW is a con man but why take on all the debt that could have come from the big tax case and another debts shown in BDO (number of creditors). Take all that on for a football team with no stadium or training ground.

3.) Billy b your way of the mark with that one bank of scotland lifted their security to allow all assets to go to whyte for the pound from murray once they had reiceived the 18m from whyte via ticketus this is where the major fraud liess because at that stagge whyte did not control rangers or the right to season ticket monies because whyte had to show the bank of scotland and murray that the money was in whytes lawyers client account

Hand on heart, how many of our fans believe that dk will live up to his latest promise, new manager and director of football, in the next two months?


{Ed033's Note - Above question made into a voting poll.

DOF Poll

1.) 09 Mar 2017 20:35:39
Looks as if we are 1/ 2 way there already

2.) 10 Mar 2017 15:22:45
I do. Just remember where the club could have been without DK. Under the thumb of that muppet Ashley. A Little humility please. Yes we are a long way from our destination but at least there are gers men at the helm. Get behind them.



19 Feb 2017 19:51:36
I see that there are many posts about team selections.
I am not saying this is the case this season, but in Davie Weir's last season he had a clause in his contract that if he was fit he played, and he was only paid when he played.


1.) 19 Feb 2017 19:57:47
Are you not talking about big jiggy

2.) 19 Feb 2017 20:27:19
Yes, it was mcculloch.

3.) 19 Feb 2017 20:30:28
Blueshaun, I don't know about jig, but DW had that clause.

4.) 19 Feb 2017 21:36:18
I think Halliday must have that clause as well, because that guy is a joke and yet he plays every week!

5.) 20 Feb 2017 00:58:16
Have to say I thought Halliday hid today. Showed no interest in getting the ball and just wandered about. He is a disgrace to the jersey and should be shown the door



17 Feb 2017 21:17:35
I would say we are all clutching at straws, as I truly believe that DK does not have plan B either, but his is mainly due to there not being any money in the coffers.
The next injection of money will be from us and I will bet London to an orange that the soft loans will be paid first.
I believe that our directors will be asking DK about our club's viability, as they have responsibilties to the shareholders for their actions.
Not doom and gloom, just facts.


1.) 17 Feb 2017 21:33:46
Yawn! Billy, most of our directors are significant shareholders. They are currently running the club WITH DK. They are not in the dark. if they were then their strong reputations would be in tatters. as you have said before, there a a few serious and well connected people on the board, if there was anything untoward or uncertain about plan A, B or C then they are as culpable as DK.

2.) 18 Feb 2017 13:53:39
The soft loans will be converted to shareholding that has already been made clear.
The only ones not stating that are obsessed types that would even go as far as to pretend to be Rangers Supporters, of which there are several that prowl this site.



14 Feb 2017 21:31:51
My biggest concern is, yet again, DK is in a dispute where someone else is wrong and he is in the right.
When the story came out about MW, it looked cast iron that he was the out and out bad guy, but as the facts start to emerge it gets a bit cloudier.
MW is not the loss, it is the prestige of our club that again is tarnished, yet again, and DK is integral in every bit of bad publicity.
And yet again we get his spin on the new manager ---" We'll get a stop gap -- then we will appoint the right man to take us forward" and " We will appoint a Director of Football. " He talks the talk, but never walks the walk.


1.) 14 Feb 2017 23:06:29
Fair comment about King although Warburton and Weir were clearly working their ticket! The fact that the club wants to appoint an person of integrity that is a winner thankfully suggests that Davies will be no where near the marble staircase when the new appointments are made but I suspect that even King knows that this time he has to invest in a quality manager that is credible and he has to find the funds to allow him to invest in the team.

2.) 15 Feb 2017 14:00:57
Agreed Tom, the board have now made a rod for their back now by telling us about appointing directors of football and a manager that can take us forward and they have been inundated with applicants for these jobs, only time will tell I suppose, but one things for sure we have to get these appointments correct because we just can't afford another setback at this point



11 Feb 2017 14:38:30
I hope that Alec McLeish takes on the job to the end of the season with assistance from from three senior players to assist with coaching. [ Hill, Miller and Wallace. ]


1.) 11 Feb 2017 15:38:58
So long as it is only tis the end of the season to give us time to find a quality managerial team and the level of investment needed to take us back to our rightful position then so be it.

2.) 11 Feb 2017 15:40:37
For tomorrows game I would like to see Murtie given support from Souness, Smith, Gough and Brown. Get these guys into the dressing room with the players to do the team talk and we will win at ease!

Our players will not have seen the like in their careers and the club will not have seen a team talk like it in the past five years!

3.) 11 Feb 2017 15:56:33
Yes Tom, till the end of the season, but I would disagree with getting our legends into the dressing room. Hopefully they could be in attendance within Ibrox, but taking it that stage forward could leave players and staff, overawed.

4.) 11 Feb 2017 15:59:50
Seen some fans wanting Barry Ferguson as new boss. If we were going down that route of a younger manager I would rather try Robbie neilson but might be too big a job for younger manager just now.

5.) 11 Feb 2017 16:32:15
Harry rednapp could be an option. Would sort mess out

6.) 11 Feb 2017 20:26:07
Harry Rednapp!
Like we need another snout in the shrinking trough.

7.) 11 Feb 2017 21:29:44
I'm ok with Alex MCleish thought he did a good job last time who could forget helicopter Sunday but do you really think he is the type of guy who would come in to fill a gap till end of season can't see that he's his own man no stand in

8.) 11 Feb 2017 21:33:46
We may as well just give miller the job till end of the season rather than bringing in an interim

9.) 12 Feb 2017 19:05:27
Get Walter and McLeish in for the remainder of season.

10.) 12 Feb 2017 19:17:33
Jaws, Robbie Neilson is a great shout!

Tommy45, just like yourself I have followed our team for many years, 55+, and still recall watching Johnny Hubbard, Don Kitchenbrand and Maxie Murray. Then Millar, Brand and Wilson, before you come on the scene, but the main thing we followed them through the good and the bad.
You are 100% correct about Murray, he ripped us apart and all for self gain. The demise of supporters clubs and the massive push for the sale of season tickets is down to him. Cheers mate and who knows what is round the corner.

Yes CD, I would play 2 of them as defensive midfielders in front of Alves.
My main reason for this is that our centre halves cannot form a good pairing, and any ball that is played into our central defence causes havoc.
It is terrible to admit, but young Bates is badly missed and would walk into our team. Then we could revert to a back 4 with McCrorie in the defensive midfield role.

We need more game time for Cummings. I would utilise him and Morelos up front and let the two wide players attack from slightly deeper. The central midfield would be Goss, Dorrans and Docherty.

Waken up lads, King will spend as little as possible. Again, he tells us what he thinks we want to hear.
Well there is some money he won't get his grubby paws on, and that is my money for 2 bar 72 tickets.
