Paredes age 29, watford right back valued at 2mil. Apparently we are interested in him, 2mil no chance we are paying that. Hopefully dave king tells warbs that hodson is a perfect fit at right back and if you want to spend 2mil then we will spend it on a cb and dm👍

We don't need a right back, we do need a defensive midfield player, if there is #2m available, highly unlikely, then that is where the money should be spent!


2.) 18 Jan 2017 21:50:31
If we have 2 million to spend on a rb then there must be money there
Everybody can see we need players in other areas first like a playmaker and a big cf like him playing for Lincoln tonight if we got him a few years ago lol


3.) 18 Jan 2017 22:32:07
centre back's is what we need isn't good enoughnk warbs is doing a pretty good job considerin we need to shore up the defence in the problem areas biggest of the lot being cb's plural

Lads, W&W would not have achieved what they have if all the clowns were still in the boardroom. Fact

The quality of players we have now would never have came to ibrox if the clowns were still in the boardroom. Fact.

Read the news, the clowns are for the jail. Even if mccoist wanted a scouting system or the quality players mentioned above, the clowns would have laughed at him. I'm not saying mccoist is blameless entirely, but the man was on a hiding to nothing from the start.

He can't do it all eg. Reshaping the footballing side of the club from top to bottom the way w&w have without support from the board. If king was in charge, would mccoist have had better chance? I would think so. Also pre-admin, mccoist had rangers 15 points infront of celtic. So there was something there. What type of quality player would we have signed that would play in the 3rd, 2nd div?

A lot of the young players got battered when they played. I also think morale at ibrox was so low that motivation was difficult for anyone to lift. Remember we were given 5 loan players we had no say in. So i think that proves that mccoist, mcdowel did not have full control of footballing matters. Therefore a scouting system etc. was never going to happen.

The clowns wanted us back in the spl/europe asap so they could bleed us dry. Allys remit from the board was make it happen quick hence the hurried spl player signings. That will keep the fans happy whilst we pull the wool over their eyes thought the board.

Mccoist go and scout players himself? And who would finance that? the board, don't make me laugh. John greig was banned from ibrox, walter smith left the board after a month or so, was that all mccoist's fault? Mccoist wanted all the things that w&w have. Of course he did. He had no chance from the start.

Lets all move on from thus stuff, bottom line is until McCoist releases his book on his time as manager we can speculate all we want. You can be sure that when the cash is on the table and not before, he will tell all.


2.) 12 Sep 2015 12:44:21
He give away a 15 point lead with quality players when in the spl! He got knocked out of every competition we where in with a quality team at his disposal. His tactics, his training his coaching where all abysmal that was nothing to do with the spivs in the board room unless Whyte. Green and the easdales where taking the training sessions. Your defence of Mccoist is laughable. I'll repeat what I said yesterday he has only come to an agreement so he can start a new job and no matter how many times you try and defend him that's a fact!


3.) 12 Sep 2015 13:53:00
as much as i now despise macoist over the greedy shambolic way he ran rangers and as much i understand why billy would not want to go back to ibrox if macoist retuns because i stayed away until he was sacked its now time to forget him and move on some people still think he is a ledgend that's their chioce which they are entitled to so let's move on and forget him


4.) 12 Sep 2015 17:09:30
Hooly78. If you can't see that all the off field problems had a major impact on the footballing side then you are laughable, he lost a 15 point lead?? Seriously? The club went into admin and the players and staff took a 75% pay cut. You think that might have had something to do with it, affected moral?? I'm sure if you had to take a massive pay cut your head would be down. I have stated twice that mccoist is not entirely blameless, 3rd time now😩.

I am simply saying if he had the backing of an honest, stable board things might not have been so bad. he tried his best to keep the club together when we were in ruins and should be respected for that. Finally, whether he has a new job or not its his money! Would you work for free? Just stating valid points to consider before you hang the man out to dry. Yes he wasn't the best manager but to never welcome the man back to ibrox, nonsense.


5.) 12 Sep 2015 17:19:36
Coldo?

You mirror my sentiments exactly. Ally was not without fault but he is being treated like the last man in the team who let's the ball in the net and ALL the blame lies with him.

Ally had to stand alone when things went belly up once, twice and three times.

Those who convict him without the full evidence are blind. We cannot fully judge him until all the facts are known, especially those that went on behind the scenes. What went on during Ally's tenure was both laughable, shocking and so very sad. It is something that rarely happens in football, but when it does the football goes out the window. When ceptic were getting robbed by the kelly's and the whites, prior to the caravan salesman turning up, ceptic could not string a pass - Ally had three years of that.

So I for one will cut him a bit of slack until I know all the facts. Rangers fans should not be too quick to judge - that is what ceptics do.

6 out of 6 - fantastic!!


6.) 12 Sep 2015 17:30:45
I never once said he shouldn't be allowed back to ibrox! He had the backing of the board he had the 2nd highest wage bill in Scotland. And bought nothing but garbage he never improved 1 player he brought in that's nothing to do with the boardroom. I could understand him taking money of the previous board but he should of waived his entitled when the new board come in but he took his 300.000 wages I can't forgive that. I certainly wouldn't be grudge him being allowed to ibrox as a fan but under no circumstances would I welcome him being an employee of the club again. But coldo were never going to agree.


7.) 12 Sep 2015 17:45:39
I totally agree, we were going smoothly with a 15 point lead, who knows what may have happened, I have never gone along with all this anti McCoist stuff.


8.) 12 Sep 2015 18:58:01
Ya we where going smoothly we were knocked out of 2 European competitions and league cup all before end of September.


9.) 12 Sep 2015 19:41:19
Might have meant the league


10.) 13 Sep 2015 14:09:32
ALLY, i'm afraid was out his depth in football management..... he became greedy and blind to the facts becoming a YES man along the way.
Our present manager makes Ally look like what he really was,,,,,,,,, useless.
We are playing the best football we have seen in years and Mcoist must look on in envy altho I have a feeling that he will be blaming everything and anything for his mis management and lack ability.


11.) 14 Sep 2015 03:04:59
Tactically naive, poor training methods and all in all not a very good manager are things that I could throw at ally. We all know he wasn't a very good manager. But all in all could anyone have successfully managed our club with the shambles that it was. I strongly believe Walter smith seen what was happening and even he walked away.

No investment in youth policy, our great stadium being neglected left right and centre, no scouting network, the front page headlines every day are just some of the contributory factors that would have made the task of keeping morale high almost impossible. Especially for an inexperienced and untried manager. Ally certainly wasn't management material but he gave it his best shot and I for one will never hold his manager stint against him. The guy has given me too many happy moments in my life to do that

Just remember people as u's are criticising the guy, you's are also slating the 4th inaugural member of the Rangers hall of fame. That for me says it all. Some people either have short memories or they are just simply ungrateful.

How tav gets a game is beyond me. He can't tackle, defend, pass or cross. Same daft mistakes at the back. We keep being told that they will learn from these mistakes. When will they learn warbs?

The dundee game was by far the best performance this season. We hadn't saw before and we haven't saw since a performance like that. We had great performances in some other games, hibs 6-2, 4-2 etc, but the dundee game for me was a different level. Why can't we play like that most weeks, after all they have proved that they can play like that so they have set there own benchmark. Every player was outstanding that day. I don't make excuses for us and we can't make excuses. We are very poor at defending and to be honest the warning signs have been there all season about our defence. My point is this for us to cope as we are in the spl we would need to play at the level we did against dundee every week. Which wouldn't happen. So comparing league stats with celtic to guage how we will peform against them is ridiculous. They, who aren't in great form and with very little effort, comfortably beat a good hearts side yesterday who played well. We would like to think that we are on a level par with hearts as most suggest there is no gap between the spl and the championship? Turn it up.

coldo

1.) 03 Apr 2016 14:02:51
Totally agree Coldo, and I think our biggest problem is complacency and concentration. I feel we need, and this is nothing against Wallace, a strong captain in the mould of John Greig. No matter how he played, he had the ability to motivate the team. Wallace is a really good player and has turned into a real asset in our ranks, but I would love to see us with a grumpy, hard man motivating our team, playing in a defensive mid-field position.


2.) 03 Apr 2016 15:28:37
Billy b: Good point, someone like that could only help the team to remain focussed at all times, it might not always work of course, but someone in that mould, a moaning git who would be on the player's cases when defending corners etc would be a bonus. Aberdeen successful teams had it in Miller, Man Utd had Keane, but that is what an experienced head probably in the middle of midfield could do for us.

Anyone else hope both rangers and hibs win today? That way Tues night at ibrox will be rocking. I know we want the league won as soon as but I would love to win it at ibrox on tues. Ibrox would be packed, atmosphere etc. Great night. So c'mon hibs don't let us down.

coldo

1.) 02 Apr 2016 09:27:09
Coldo. I disagree. Being totally selfish I've taken St Mirren 5/ 1 and Hearts 10/ 1 as a win double today! I'm sure we'll win the league by Tuesday whatever happens. Happy days are here again!


2.) 02 Apr 2016 09:40:21
Took hearts myself, great price. Obv would be great to win the league today but going for a few beers before going to ibrox on tues would be magic. I'm being selfish but hey sometimes we have to be.


3.) 02 Apr 2016 10:01:47
Sounds like Tuesday will be special. Unfortunately I live 450 miles away in Sussex!


4.) 02 Apr 2016 10:20:51
I'm in the same boat with you Doiger, live in Oxfordshire and no chance of time off for the games this month!


5.) 02 Apr 2016 12:01:23
Isn't there a really bad flu going about in Oxford at the moment. Sickness bugs also rife at this time of year. Just an idea.

I am just getting over a bout, passed it to the wife and kids and I'm getting back into phys now!

Can't understand why we are getting wound up about comments from sutton, hartson etc. That is exactly their aim, don't give them them the satisfaction. let's go about our buisness quietly and confidently. They are only shouting off because they know that we know that they are there for the taking. The pressure is all on them and they know it.

coldo

1.) 13 Mar 2016 13:47:10
Yip agreed don't let yourself be wound up.

Frank de boer has denied any contact. Mcleish would be interim if anything just now. Maybe confirmed permanent in the summer if he improves significantly the performance of the team. Can't see anything permanent just now in my opinion. Would much prefer de boer as I think he would have the contacts and the knowledge of some gems from holland. Wishful thinking maybe, but one can only hope.

Where did you get that shortlist? Petrol station, delivery driver, a coach? Don't keep us waiting, we need to know if this true or not.

I hope warbs and weir read this because if you don't resign now and take that poor excuse of a team with you, excluding a few players, then 50k fans will tell you to do one on saturday. Save yourself the humiliation and go now. Wallace never a rangers captain!

Lance, keep up. They wanted to resign as they thought they had the forest job, they told the board this. The board agreed this. The forest job fell through, so the board had a meeting yesterday to discuss this, they decided to accept the resignations as it was clear that mw and co were not committed to the club.

Mw and co wanted out and tried to bargain with the board to waive compensation so they could get out quickly. They knew their time was up and tried the easy way out. Tells you everything you need to know about mw and co. Good riddance!
