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👍


1.) 18 Jan 2017 08:41:34
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.


1.) 12 Sep 2015 12:29:50
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

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.

Great result, well done lads. Defended for our lives and were lucky on a couple of occassions. Thought fod was absolute class, murty great tactical change bringing on bates. We need more quality though, hope the dof has this sorted for january.


1.) 14 Dec 2017 08:39:55
Agree we rode our luck it was a stone wall Pen but we defended well but going forward our passing was a disgrace we kept giving the ball away hence the pressure on us but we need two or three better quality players who can put their foot on the ball and control the game but three points is three points and at Easter Road where a lot of teams will drop points they are valuable points

2.) 14 Dec 2017 09:09:35
Not a great performance but defended better than we have been
100% a penalty and we got away with one but no more a penalty than we should have had for the pull on Mccrorrie in the first half so Lennon should shut his hole
In my opinion we have miles to improve in all areas of the park but we are only about 5 points behind them

3.) 14 Dec 2017 12:01:39
Great result last night, but mark Allan do your job and get moult from Motherwell, I really think he could be a big player for us

4.) 14 Dec 2017 12:05:21
Squad is down to the bare bones.

The game was too fast for young Barjonas and it’s unfair to throw 18 year olds into these games. It shows how good McCrorrie has done coming in. We have too many players in the squad who just won’t play - Rossiter, Krancjar, Hodson, Dalcio and Cardoso. Add players who aren’t good enough Pena, Herrera, Morelos, and Candias.

What has happened to Candeias in the last couple of games. I really liked him but he has been rubbish in the past few games.

5.) 14 Dec 2017 14:23:35
are you seriously adding morelos to a list of not good enough? one of the strangest things i have seen on here

6.) 15 Dec 2017 00:51:21
Won't play? Cardosa got his nose broken. Candeias has created more goals than anyone in the league. Morelos? Our top goalscorer? You're either on the wind up or crack.

7.) 15 Dec 2017 09:08:33
He’s rubbish. Useless.

He missed 2 great chances last night and I stopped counting during the Hamilton game, his touch is like an elephant’s, he can’t pass, he can’t hold the ball up, he makes rubbish runs and he is as slow as a week in the jail.

8.) 15 Dec 2017 09:50:29
How many times has Cardoso played since being fit again? He is number 5 centre half and taking a good wage. He won't play too often under Murty.

Have you read the other posts about Candias? Has Murty not dropped him to the bench?

Compare Morelos to Jelavic, Prso, Naismith - the last decent forwards we had. Lad couldn't lace their boots.

He's that good he was getting booed at the Hamilton game.

Get a grip and stay off the glue.



28 Oct 2017 07:40:42
Why are people suggesting big sam, coleman, pulis for manager? There is absolute no chance any of these would want the job, absolute no chance. It better not be that banger billy davies, lmfao lol. You all know who I want and I have stated the reasons why, which speak for themselves. Another huge issue is how do we get shot of pena, herrera etc. How anyone saw a player in them, never mind paying 5mil for them is so far beyond me. Dave King really has to step up to the mark here, they made an arse of it not the supporters, so he better dig deep and not expect us to sort this financial mess out again. Who saw this coming?


1.) 28 Oct 2017 08:44:50
We need to push the boat out and get a proper manager. None of this experimental pish. Sam allerdyce got the England job yes he was sacked for dodgy dealing but is that job not all about man management since you can't buy the players. We can't currently buy any decent players but get the big man in to manage them properly

2.) 28 Oct 2017 09:18:24
and the **** press would have a field day, wedont need skeletons in the cupboard



22 Oct 2017 15:13:02
Pena is absolutely howling. How does fod get a game over alnwick?


1.) 22 Oct 2017 15:52:58
Id play Fod instead of Pena 😂

2.) 22 Oct 2017 16:04:41
Aye, keep herrera instead of signing moult.

3.) 22 Oct 2017 16:22:29
after that Pedro's got to got, would love to say different and hate saying it but we are going nowhere under this guy. He's a clown

4.) 22 Oct 2017 16:29:55
Absolutely gutted, where was the team that demolished St Johnstone. Chance after chance missed. The refereeing was diabolical but no excuses there. We were missing in action in the biggest game of the season so far.

5.) 22 Oct 2017 16:48:55
I’d love to see his stats. how many touches did he have and did he actually complete any passes? Not like he grafts either. Maybe worst player Iv seen in a Gers jersey in a long long time.

6.) 22 Oct 2017 17:05:27
We never actually demolished st Johnston that score flattered us.



13 Oct 2017 23:40:34
Great fight much better, although we didn't really get a grip of the game until they went down to ten men. Pena took both goals well but still still his passing and control is shocking at times, however I will admit he was much better. Cardoso is a bomb scare. We did fight for 90mins which was pleasing.


1.) 14 Oct 2017 02:45:13
I watched the game and I'd like you to tell me more than one instance where Pena's passing and control was 'shocking', never mind 'at times'. Just two will do. And does winning 1-0 away fro home constitute to you that we didn't have a grip of the game? Have you the first idea about football or are you just what we all believe you to be, a professional whinger who is no lover of Rangers?

2.) 14 Oct 2017 09:34:10
Bigsam you are deluded, keep it up tho as your good for a laugh. When we were winning 1-0, St Johnstone were well in the game so yes that constitutes that we did have a grip of the game. As I said we were much better and we had fight. But I would like to see us finish off teams with 11 men the way we did when they went down to 10. Upto the sending off it was a pretty even game. As for pena his touch and passing is shocking at times and there was more than a few instances that proved that. Take nothing away from his finishes tho, very good.

3.) 14 Oct 2017 09:52:20
On the topic of improvement, tav had a really good game. Got forward set up pena and wad actually back defending. Either they are really working hard or it was a lucky friday 13th for us.

4.) 14 Oct 2017 10:39:49
Both of tav's crosses for pena were class, hope he keeps it up. Can't understand why fod looks for the short pass out all the time. Every time he does this its panic mode for me.

5.) 15 Oct 2017 00:25:30
Coldo i have to agree with u mate. Penas overall play is actually terrible at times but he has a good habit of bn in the right place at the right time



26 Sep 2017 13:44:21
We need someone who knows the club, who knows the scottish game, who knows how to get the best fight out of players. Who knows what type of player is needed in the scottish game. Can't understand why people don't want mcinnes, look what he has achieved at aberdeen on a quarter of our budget. Aberdeen are a solid, well organised team that have fight about them. We have nothing about us. I'm telling you now, mcinnes would transform us.


1.) 26 Sep 2017 14:29:00
Mate your name looks like oldco backwards or is that a play on the word. Its no upto us if mcinnes gets the job. You should be asking yourself why the board didn't want mcinnes or mcleish but took this clown instead.

2.) 26 Sep 2017 14:47:51
Coldo. Are you mcinnes in disguise? Every post you do has 'get mcinnes in'. He can't get near Celtic. If we do go for a new manager we need to open the cheque book like Celtic did to get Rodgers in. Mcinnes if anything is a side way step.

3.) 26 Sep 2017 15:11:01
Fod, coldo is not oldco, that's just your dyslexia talking😩. The name is colin, coldo is a nickname but if you want to rearrange the letters to suit your own agenda then that's your paranoia. Yip I'm well aware its not upto us, if it was then the team would no doubt be in a better position. Why did they take pedro?, who knows, maybe you could put your code breaking skills to use and find out for us😉😂.

4.) 26 Sep 2017 15:18:32
Really james.

5.) 26 Sep 2017 15:47:49
Coldo wee question for you mate! I understand you rate and would like derek mcinnes to replace pedro, to be the next rangers manager! I get that my friend! For the record, i think mcinnes is a decent enough manager but here's my question to you, and other fellow bears, if they want! Forget all this personal sideshow, personal stuff, regarding billy davies for a second here! Do you think derek mcinnes is a better manager/ coach than wee billy davies? If anyone thinks he is then i'm sorry but imo you don't know or understand, a good manager/ coach when you see one! Their manager records speak for themselves guys!

{Ed001's Note - are you related to Davies? If not, what on earth is so good about the poison dwarf's record? Or does he just like to share with you at parties so you have a soft spot for him? If you understand what makes a good manager in the modern game, then you would know that it is all about man-management and that Davies is a terrible man-manager.}

6.) 26 Sep 2017 16:04:51
I have already said the facts about mcinnes, they speak for themselves. There are other managers I also think would be good but given our circumstances, finances etc, I think mcinnes is a great shout. For the record supercoop billy davies is a pleb.

7.) 27 Sep 2017 23:29:10
James, u say we need to "open the cheque book like celtic"! Open the cheque book to get who exactly?

In your opinion What truly top calibre manager could we get?

8.) 28 Sep 2017 02:17:03
Only one man for me if we can't get Walter. Alex McLeish - all day long

I would keep bates and get shot of cardoso. Another one who has failed to impress and to be honest is cardoso better than bates? I don't think so. I would rather we kept bates and developed him ourselves.

His teams are well organised and hard to beat, I think he would be a great fit for the type of football in our game. I don't think he would come. Wage wise and transfer budget wise I think would be an issue. Who knows tho.

I'd take "quitsy's" on any cash owed for pena and herrera if their old clubs would take them back. Candieas has more about him and we could get more out of him. I'd give him until the end of the season.

Could you imagine halliday and pena in the same midfield🙈. I'm probably being generous here but I have a nagging feeling that ohal with morelos and windass behind them might just be a shout. Might just be the festive cheer talking.
