warburton remit at rangers was to get us promoted he done this but as for the rest of things in the job I certainly do not see the improvement he is ment to big on player development but the only player I see in our team that has developed further is mackay he is ment to be big on fitness but do not see this on the pitch looks the opposite on the field ment to be big on youth players yet none of our youth players seem to get a chance even when our first team stars are not performing was ment to add value to the squad on and off the field do not see any value in this squad of players part from mackay possibly rossiter if ever fit and maybe fordingham so not a lot of value added to the squad on and off the field so far
has to get us second in the leauge he is on course to do this.
so looking at the things 6 things above he is on course to achieve 2 out of 6
you can say he hasn't been giving money to spend but the money he has spent has not been spent Wisely


1.) 16 Jan 2017 13:04:17
Player developmemt is over the course of multiple seasons not half a season. Fitness has definetly improved but like similar teams in the epl it is hard to keep high tempo for 90mins playing the way we do. Young players is 3-5 type plan, if they aren't close to being good enough not much he can do. Adding value is inevitable as the vast majority of the guys we got for free so any transfer fee is adding value. 2million for 22 players is pretty good in my book. i don't know if you expected people like forreter to kick on and be sold for 15mill and a team full of teenagers but its not going to happen. Improving the youth system would be 1 youth player a season getting into the 1st team aquad and adding value is signing someone for free and selling them for a couple of mill after a couple of seasons

2.) 16 Jan 2017 13:46:19
so who in this squad do you think will develop in to good enough player two sell in few years time as for youth players who says there are not good enough they surley deserve a chance to prove there are by replacing underperforming if your going to play this high tempo game then you need fast and fit enough players who are going to perform in a unit we got them for free and that's how much they will end up leaving for cause they not good enough to sell for profit on this form and yeh at least 1 or 2 younsters should get into first team a year but so far they arent

3.) 16 Jan 2017 17:36:05
Maybe none for an serious profit yet but the point i am making is that its a long game and these things take time. If we had loaned out the young guys and they were stars for championship teams then they would get a chance but none of them have really performed so not good enough yet



08 Jan 2017 11:31:11
so a deal is supossedly finalised for hydman


1.) 08 Jan 2017 14:41:21
in Glasgow now



22 Sep 2015 21:07:13
i think on tonight's performance shows there is a long way to go before we can compete with average premier league teams never mind David king dreaming about challenging Celtic serious investment will be needed to do that
our defence is terrible Wilson should be dropped for ball instead seems to think he can stroll threw games


1.) 22 Sep 2015 22:32:44
To be fair I thought we played a good game apart from the defence and Halliday. Nothing went our way no luck. I'm not to fussed about the outcome our priority is winning the championship. If we do well in cups then it's a brucie bonus onwards and upwards RTID.



01 Aug 2015 10:40:26
eustace to be offered two year deal another bit of good business done by the club midfield looked light wait against hibs this will add protection for the defence would imagine this would mean halliday will move further forward in centre mid and replace law or holt or he could go to left wing where he played for Bradford this would be better option as boy can hit a ball and cross then if we could sign allan and replace law with him then our midfield would be very strong leaving mackay temps and aird to fight it out for right wing postion




14 May 2015 15:08:35
strong rumour going round this afternoon that david king has passed fit and proper test


1.) 14 May 2015 15:16:09
was just coming on here to write this mate. I think it might be true with an announcement due before close of play today.

2.) 14 May 2015 16:37:00
hopefully true then king ect can tell us there plan for the club and how much is going be invested

so that's ohallran mackay forrester doodoo and now miller getting shiped to the youth the manager has lost it
for me the next manager has got to be someone that has man managment skills to get best out of the players and experiance
sam allardyce or mcinnes would be good choices


1.) 29 Sep 2017 11:41:31
ohallaran was a dud and done nothing for us dodoo needs to be out on loan to get game time forrester everyone hated and mckay was not consistant enough miller has been no good this season.

honestly i don't get some people on here the same ones that wants major change to get a better team want all the same players to stay even if they don't actually help us to our goal.

honestly we have thi biggest bunch of moany face bastar*s in this league honestly have a moan that we have these players that do nothing then have a moan because they are being shipped or sent on loan or sent to the youth squad because they have not been doing their own job.

king kenny (who i have nothing but admiration for) has been too busy trying to cover and has run backwards this year more than he has went forward.

trust in pedro and after one "FULL" season and then judge how far he has brought our team and if at the end of we don't see progress then call it a day but not 10 matches into a season we are not going tpo challabnge celtic with ony having spent what we spent i one window . we need to give him another window and option to build a winning team

2.) 29 Sep 2017 11:59:37
Peds, you've done a mccoist; we don't do walking away, now your stuck with the bed you made. Your blind if you don't see what the rest of us see, pedro out.

3.) 29 Sep 2017 11:58:01
@peds11 - totally agree. We criticise players for not doing the business. They are punted / loaned and they are the greatest thing since sliced bread. Where are same fans now bigging up McKay ( can't get a start for Forest ) or Garner who hasn't scored in 5 games for Ipswich?

Our job as fans is to first and foremost support the team through thick and thin.
If we sack Pedro - how many games do we give the next manager?

4.) 29 Sep 2017 13:04:38
fod its not "what the rest of us" think. your poll results clearly showed that

5.) 29 Sep 2017 14:09:03
The "rest of you's" are deluded.

6.) 29 Sep 2017 16:15:08
fodtheprod you are not the majority
the majority want pedro to stay its the minority that are thick.

its the minority that are impatient.

and its the minority that can't see the manager has done well with very little money.

its the minority that don't want to give players a chance and want nothing but the club to go backwards to square 1.

dont tell me i don't see what the rest of u see whern its you that's a part of the minority.



24 Sep 2017 22:58:08
this squad may be capable of doing better, time will tell. but looking forward to future transfer windows mclean, walker, moult and wouldn't mind the lad quitonga from morton as well.

then in summer use the majority of the money to buy 2 or 3 players who are good quality or talented to do this the scouting network needs set up to as we will not find these players without scouts.


1.) 25 Sep 2017 01:03:46
Quotonga has signed with Saltcoats Vic's lol

2.) 25 Sep 2017 01:24:19
You do know you are skint and relying on directors' loans? The more you play up the millions the squad cost to assemble and the more you criticise them and all the scouts see their true ability the worse it makes it for you.

3.) 25 Sep 2017 11:19:52
Haha saltcoats vics more like ardeer that's his level never know he might get better and sign for kilbirnie ladeside. Fek beith.

4.) 25 Sep 2017 11:55:08
Fek beith fae me fodtheprod, looks like we are cut from the same cloth.



23 Sep 2017 21:46:51
i would like to see pedro get it right at the club but so far the only diffrence between this season and last season is the players we are still not winning against the likes of hibs hearts partick still lacking creativity in midfield still shiping goals still only 1 striker scoring for the sums paid for these players they should be a lot better for me player reqruitment has been poor this summer there was better alternatives 2 pena herrerra cardoso dalcio


1.) 23 Sep 2017 23:35:29
Totally agree, too many poor signings, can accept losing to celtic they are miles ahead but it's the Partick thistle, hearts, hibs teams we need to be beating



15 Sep 2017 22:48:04
miller should be used last 20 min if we going play two strikers i would like to see hardie and morelos play together




15 Jan 2017 17:33:11
today's performance and team selection where no surprise half these players do not deserve to wear a rangers shirt with this beeing a friendly this was a chance to try diffrent tactics and give some youngsters a chance in the team instead we are stuck with same old tactics and players at least youngsters would fight for the team unlike some of players at the club seems pointless going all way to Germany to do the same old over and over again am sure we could have stayed at home and got a friendly organised hear to do this who we mite have been competive with and scored some goals to grow confidence not crush it more by getting thumped by 4 goals our players do not seem to buy into this formation this season and our centre back are to slow two play three at the back it is Warburton who brought all these players to rangers and constantly plays them even tho they not good eneogh bout time he woke up keeps saying we will learn from it all the time but same problems persist week in week out and not learning


1.) 15 Jan 2017 18:25:14
I'm not saying I'm happy with how it's going etc but this was not your normal preseason friendly for bleeding youngsters and trying new stuff. This was about getting back into match fitness and mentality after a break.
We needed our first team back together.

2.) 15 Jan 2017 18:58:33
we could have quite easily done this at home at would have been more benificial to arrange a game with our youth team and see if some these youth player are good enough my money would be on a few of the youths outshine the first team players plus if we are not match fit half way threw a season then we are in big trouble these players have been playing week in week out so they probly would welcome the rest

3.) 15 Jan 2017 19:01:22
The only hope for me is that there was more to this Red Bull Leipzig friendly than just football and we will get some sponsorship so that we can bring in some decent quality players. Even in a friendly when we are maligning substitutes the same carp players stay on the park!

4.) 15 Jan 2017 20:28:23
Exactly look at bigger picture getting our name out their showing how big our support is. hopefully right people were watching. need rebuilding ain't going too happen quick

5.) 15 Jan 2017 17:58:59
It was a friendly we played the team sitting second in there league.

its quite clear to see david king is not going invest signifiant funds so really he should keep quite and stop promising the fans things then not delivering on the promises it is that simple actions speak louder than words then he wouldn't get sluaghterd on hear for it

if these are the true amounts that the club are wanting then we are undervaluing some of them in my opinion we should be requesting 2 million for garner and tavenier with sell on percentage for tavenier and mackay should be sold for nothing less than 3 million with sell on josh windass at least 1 million the rest i would sell for small fees or release

with mckay if any clubs want him for a decent fee plus sell on percentage they should let the lad leave he is not consistent enough and the funds would help pedro in the transfer market he does not get enough goals or assists for the position he plays.

if we sell mackay I really hope David king keeps this money locked away till the summer we have enough in the squad 2 get second and Warburton record in the transfer market is not great

we are supposed to be after Sam Nicholson from hearts so could this be away of getting the young lad Nicholson to come to rangers we are sweating the deal buy offering them ohallaran if this is not the case then ohallaran should go no where near hearts with the amount of intrest in ohallaran other team must see something in him our club must be in desire straights and king wants wage budget cut if we need to save 2 k on wages

i do not think we will sign anyone else europe was a big factor in our transfer plans and we all no what happend there
i do wonder about the fees paid for some of the players i feel these may have beeen inflated
for the team to progress we need sort the lb and rb postions

tavenier waghorn windass niko crooks could all fetch us some sort of fee so that is a plus as no pay off for them then also mackay and garner could fetch us money if pedro decides to sell.
so that leaves us with keirnan halliday ohallran forester hodson holt doodoo the last 3 could be used as squad players.
so we will only have to pay keirnan halliday forester ohallran of.
getting rid off players mentioned above would raise some funds plus also free a lot wages so after signing on fees ect and if king stays true to his word and would expect pedro to have 10 or 12 million available for transfer fees possibly more depending if he gets any of the transfer fees

if you look at what miller has offered this season him surrounded with better quality players next season and he could go on to score 20 25 goals next year he is invaluable to us.

we will soon see how they plan on taking us forward this summer is a big summer for our board and these appointments are crucial to it so main targets need to be secured to help us
