Jamie Murphy would be a great signing if we pull it off in january. Fingers crossed on that one.

Im more excited for the january transfer window than i am for christmas.

I wonder who santa will bring us in January.


1.) 17 Dec 2017 15:21:18
Nobody, no money and no manager - simple.

2.) 17 Dec 2017 15:29:57
Even if Santa brought us Jamie Murphy that's hardly massively exciting is it.



12 Dec 2017 14:57:34
We need a new goalkeeper. I know some might say its not priority and ill say fair enough to that.

Wes for me lacks so much of the physical and mental attributes required to be a goalkeeper. He is so weak in the box at crosses. Last minute vs ross county he fumbled the ball after bouncing off alves. He should be screaming for the ball and taking everyone in his path out. he's no where near commanding enough.

I will add he can make a great save but being a goalkeeper is more than making saves.

Even Alnwick seems to lack that physical and mental side of his game.

Who would you like to see come in as replacement? Within reason of course. Heard Casillas wants out of Porto. "rolls eyes".


1.) 12 Dec 2017 15:11:10
I personally think fods is a good keeper. Yes he isn’t the best at crosses but he is a really good shot stopper.

2.) 12 Dec 2017 15:18:54
If Robbie McCrorie is as good as his twin brother, then in a couple of years, we will have him as our first choice keeper.

3.) 12 Dec 2017 15:30:05
Wes epitomises modern Rangers. Some fans pointing out a quality or two of a player to try to justify and being divided over a player who couldn't lace McGregor, Woods, Klos or even Charbonnier's boots.

Hate this period in our history.

4.) 12 Dec 2017 15:59:42
I agree fods the best player we've had in a while, can't blame him for catching the ball for that freekick and Wilson jumping into him to make him spill it

5.) 12 Dec 2017 17:05:58
There are so many keepers down south that are not getting a game I would look at them. Take Krul, Stekelenberg, Lindegaard for example.

6.) 12 Dec 2017 19:43:29
Liam Kelly for me is an absolutely fantastic goalkeeper and definitely one for the very near future. been out on loan a couple times and just waiting for his opportunity, very much like McGregor did.

7.) 12 Dec 2017 21:09:57
Got to agree with the o. p, the stats don't lie, we have lost something like 62 league goals in 55 games between this season so far and last season. That's a really poor stat, I know the defence need to take a share of the blame but Fods has let in goals he should never be letting in. He is dodgy at crosses, a bombscare with the ball at his feet and doesn't command his area. I would be happy to see a higher standard of keeper brought in.

8.) 12 Dec 2017 21:59:00
Fods is an average keeper who let's in 2 many soft goals. Nearly cost us 2 points on Saturday with that mistake late on. He must have known Wilson was in close attention so why not punch the ball rather than try and hold it

9.) 13 Dec 2017 20:37:31
Thanks for keeping us in the game Wes before Windass and Morelos put us in front!
Hope we are up for second half! Come on the gers!

10.) 13 Dec 2017 21:48:42
A new goalie, aye ok mate.

11.) 14 Dec 2017 08:11:04
Take a bow wes, outstanding.

12.) 14 Dec 2017 08:20:09
If it wasn't for Foderingham last night we could have been murdered by Hibs! Think there are far more obvious areas we should strengthen before we need to look at he keeper

13.) 15 Dec 2017 00:30:44
Seriously? . Thankfully most of you won't ever get any say on team selection or just any say. He's probably the best keeper in the league when it comes to ball at his feet and distribution. He's improving all the time. Yes, he's no Goram, etc but he's good enough just now. Pig sick of such fickle "supporters"



10 Dec 2017 21:01:29
Whats your thoughts on Joe Dodoo and michael o'halloran coming back in january?

You think they will come in and make a difference or go straight back out?


1.) 10 Dec 2017 21:30:14
Dodoo can't get a game in league 1 and is terrible and ohalloran is a decent player at st Johnston level so if we are to finish second and then kick on next season both of them nowhere near good enough.

2.) 10 Dec 2017 21:30:39
Ohalloran if played as a striker could be a useful asset in an open game but limited when the other teams park the bus, that's why he is successful at a diddy club and not at Rangers. Doddoo, not sure
but could be handy, if fit, and we suffer injuries to our main strike force. However I don't think either player has a long term future with us.

3.) 10 Dec 2017 22:03:01
don’t know about dodoo or MoH or forrester and halliday are their loans for 6months or a year . i wonder if murty would consider recalling any of them?

Id have them in ahead of herrera pena dalcio hodson etc

Given our injuries to wallace rossiter dorrans etc and looking at our bench yesterday it was very thin and if money is tight maybe recalling a loan or two might be worth considering

just sayin

4.) 11 Dec 2017 17:54:01
Would get Dodoo back and in the first team squad. He has had injury problems whilst at Charlton and has not played much, but his pedigree is strong as an explosive goal scorer. Don’t think MOH is good enough so would let him stay at SJ in hope he can find a club and we can recover some money.

5.) 11 Dec 2017 18:05:07
Moult should have been bought in summer and not herrara. He is murder. Prob struggle but why not offer him contract and see what happens, nothing to lose. Guys on loan maybe deserve another chance. Pena s driving me nuts, definitely a player in there but needs the right manager to get him going I think.



06 Dec 2017 19:55:56
Derek mcinnes played for rangers for 5 year only played 35 games and scored 1. that's 7 games a season.

Hes getting made out to be a total rangers man. A rangers legend with blue blood.

Whats the hype about this guy i can't get my head around it.


1.) 06 Dec 2017 20:55:50
I will support the team and manager but think we will be talking about our next manager within 12 months.

2.) 07 Dec 2017 07:14:29
Der-goalie I don’t understand your comment there! I’m sure that no one that knows you would ever say that you were not a rangers man! So why isn’t DM. You are sayin you don’t know why he is bein made out to be a rangers man because he only worked for the club for 5 years of his career? Surly what makes us all rangers men is our love for the club. Do you know DM personally to be able to say he is not a fan? I’m sure what make a rangers man is a person that grew up supporting our club regardless of their occupation. Why does actually working for our club for 5 years disqualify him as a rangers man in your eyes mate? How many years did u work at ibrox?

3.) 07 Dec 2017 10:34:36
To be fair to DM, he landed at Ibrox when the team were full of internationalists and some genuine world class players. His chances were bound to be limited. If he had been playing now he would have been a regular. Decent player, That's all

4.) 07 Dec 2017 13:21:07
I don’t think he’s being selected because he played for rangers but more based on the belief he can take us forward which I agree with. He’s the best of the market we’re in. Our downfall has often been jobs for the boys. Let’s give him a chance and a decent one at that

5.) 07 Dec 2017 13:23:14
Just because he hardly played doesn't mean he isn't a rangers supporter! How many games u played for rangers? Do u regard yourself a rangers man?

6.) 07 Dec 2017 13:33:24
He definitely scored more than 1

7.) 08 Dec 2017 08:53:46
I’ve never ever played any games for Rangers and I class myself as a total Rangers man. Same with my old man so your point is?



01 Nov 2017 06:50:11
Do not shoot me down in flames for this. I heard that Stevie Aitken the dumbarton manager is being considered to be involved in some capacity.

I don't know what the position is but he is being touted for some roll within thw club probably assistant manager if anything.

Ive been trying to work out who would be manager if he was involved. I was thinking graeme murty and aitken.

Any ideas of what it might be?


1.) 01 Nov 2017 23:03:58
maybe to run a new pie and bovril stand? who knows

08 Dec 2017 09:09:41
Im getting slaughtered for my last post regarding DM and all the hype.

I am a Rangers man and I've never played for Rangers to answer your question but what has that got to do with the price of soap? .

Im only saying had he not played for the club he wouldn't be held in such high regard. We are falling into the trap of jobs for the boys.

End of story he isn't good enough.

You can't even compare DM to brendan.

Im not the only one. i'd say the majority of fans are gutted.




14 Nov 2017 01:49:10
Michael O'neill managerial history

Brechin City
Shamrock Rovers
Northern Ireland

Next Rangers manager seriously?

Hes done well at N. Ireland granted he's got a good squad.

International football is completely different from club football.

Theres no proof of how he goes about his business in the transfer window bringing players in. Can he attract big players?

Again i'm ready for the verbal onslaught but i'm 100% correct on this one.


1.) 14 Nov 2017 10:28:11
Can he attract big players? Well to be fair to the guy would Derek McInnes or Alex McLeish or Graeme Murty. At the moment O'Neil undoubtedly has a higher profile and reputation than any of those names across Britain.

2.) 14 Nov 2017 11:01:44
Surely we've got to bring McInnes in before the Games against the Sheep!
What O'Neil has done with N. Ireland is impressive but don't fancy him for the Managers Job.

3.) 14 Nov 2017 11:38:46
Ok der-goalie let's look at some of the points you've made. Michael O'Neil has had a 'good squad' with Northen Ireland? Really? Take a look at the clubs most of the players in that squad have come from. Apart from one Southampton and two West Brom players the rest are from the English lower leagues or the lower reaches of the spfl. There are players from Linfield, Fleetwood, Burton Albion, Rochdale, Oldham, QPR, Charlton, St Johnstone, Hearts and Ross County not only regularly in the squad but regularly playing! Yet he's managed to get them to a European Champioship and the play offs to the World Cup where by all accounts they were the better team and should of qualified. What that tells me is that he's an excellent man manager and is able to take a group of average players and get them to compete at a level way above where they are normally at. Which I personally think is an extremely important feature of any manager, especially whoever it is that becomes our next manager seeing as we can not compete with Celtic financially or in terms of quality of players just now so we will need to be better organised as a team instead.
Next your point about attracting players. The fact that we now have a director of football and at last a decent scouting team in place suggests that the next manager will have a limited role in terms of player attraction. Yes he will probably still have a final input but the job of identifying and attracting new players will mainly fall to the scouting network and the director of football. The next manager will focus much more on putting the team on the park and being able to bring them together to get results where previously we have struggled, something that Michael O'Neil has shown he is very capable of with Northen Ireland. Personally out of all the 'candidates' suggested I feel he is the strongest option.

4.) 14 Nov 2017 12:14:34
I agree with you Ger 78 Michael O'Neill is a very strong candidate. To add to your points he may not be a"Rangers man" but he played over 200 games of his career in Scotland, picked quite a few Scottish based players for Northern Ireland so must have seen a fair bit of recent Scottish football knowledge and still lives in Scotland. He may be limited in club management experience but like with NI he over achieved with Shamrock Rovers making them the first LoI side ever to get to the Europa League group stage. Plus his current assistant, "Rangers man" Jimmy Nichol has said when he leaves NI he wants to go back into club management so that might give us the nod over Scotland. Depends who he's up against though -I'd pretty torn if it winds up between him and Gio (if he's even interested) given his history with us and his recent managerial success in Holland.

5.) 14 Nov 2017 12:15:19
Great points Ger78,totally agree with you on this and I would like to add that he sticks around a lot longer than most managers and motivates players and gets them working as a unit, in my opinion he would be a first class choice, Catholic or whatever, and if we happen to get Mciness I really feel it will all end in tears and regrets, I don't think he can handle the bigger games, it's ok beating eight teams in the SPL and winning games in the cups against diddy teams, his record against the manky mob and in Europe is terrible. But I suppose if some people on here want to enjoy finishing second then he is your man, sorry not for me by a country mile.

6.) 14 Nov 2017 12:47:29
Totally agree 100% with you guys, any manager is a risk and Michael O’Neill doesn’t have the trophies on his CV (neither does McInnes. I think he’s a better option than McInnes, he is untested at European club level but for me that better than “failed at European club level”. If we can’t go and get a Gio van Bronckhorst or the like then we will have to see who does fall into the budget we have for transfers and wages etc.

7.) 14 Nov 2017 12:48:36
oneil has done a great job at northern ireland but managing a country is completly diffrent they all want to play for each other and bond as a team and is no disrupition
where at club level this is not always the case good internional manager club manager questionable
for me either gio or mccinnis should get the job

8.) 14 Nov 2017 13:01:50
O'neil has done a great job on the international side which is completely different from going into todays market and spending money to better a team.

he for me hasn't got the experience to be our manager.

mcinnes has proven he can make a team better and make players he has better players and has to be the man for the job.

we don't want managers to intice players we want players that would love to play for a massive club like the mighty glasgow rangers

9.) 14 Nov 2017 15:19:01
If he works well with poor players he should be a stand out with you guys lol.

10.) 14 Nov 2017 15:40:14
get in the mighty mcinnes for the mighty glasgow rangers never heard so much drivel in my puff, why so many people pushing for mcinnes is beyond belief they can't see as far as the end of their noses

11.) 14 Nov 2017 19:20:30
Look what your manager done with your poor players after he replaced big Ronny Rayman

12.) 14 Nov 2017 23:12:37
They wernt poor players mate they were under performing.
You add Moussa, an experienced KT, Sinclair, and a new player in Forrest and u have a good team.
Are your players under performing or have they just found their level because I can't see 1 player who is a stand out can you?



05 Nov 2017 11:27:28
Right i am prepared for the verbal onslaught for what i'm about to say.

Graeme Murty give the man the job. Honestly. Not just because he's won 2 games. He has got that team absolutely buzzing. But most importantly i seen his post match interview and he sounds like a Rangers manager. He knows what it takes to play for the Rangers and he can get that message across to the players.

I know some of you will shoot me down and call for mcciness or pardew or even mcleish which is your opinion and fair enough.



1.) 05 Nov 2017 11:59:25
I completely agree with you! Well said. Knows what the club's about, knows the players and won't cost a million.

2.) 05 Nov 2017 12:43:18
IF the Board are thinking about giving it to Murty then the best thing to do is keep him in the role as Caretaker at least until Dec/ Jan as he can then have a fair crack at it and the Club is protecting ITSELF from making a decision that could go either way to be totally honest.
I like Murty but really do not think that taking the Rangers Job as his FIRST full time Top Position is a wise move.
I really do think that we require a Manager who has experience on a few levels. Murty is definitely the man to take charge of the Team for 4-5 games and I truly think that suits him.
McInnes or Wright either one of these Men will secure 2nd and both also have the SKILLS to really challenge if the funds are made available to bring in the right Players at the right time!

3.) 05 Nov 2017 13:41:34
The players seemed to be enjoying themselves again in the Thistle match. PC did not have the backing of the players he signed and that says it all about his man management skills. Murty has restored morale and it is showing on the park. Whether this is enough to land him the job permanently time will tell. The more games he wins the better are his chances but he would need a strong right hand man like Bomber Brown to keep the dressing room in check.

4.) 05 Nov 2017 14:44:13
Totally agree. Der goalie 1



30 Oct 2017 09:15:25
Lads i am unsure like most of you regarding the length of time the board will take to appoint a new manager but what if in the next few weeks this happens

Partick - Win
Hamilton - Win
Dundee - Win
Aberdeen - Draw/ Win
Aberdeen - Draw/ Win

The top 3 games if we play like we did on sunday we should win. If we beat aberdeen at ibrox and get a draw up then surely Murty has to be considered?




26 Oct 2017 11:47:07
Gentlemen, We know the situation and it needs rosolving but now is the time for calm.

Last night i seen something at Ibrox that would never have happened in the past.

We get a penalty and it takes nearly 5 minutes for us to take it. The kilmarnock players took over, created havoc and 2 minutes later its 1-1. Now you might say what the hell has this got to do with anything. The answer is MENTALITY! . We should never have allowed for that nor should be have risen to the bait that led us to finishing with 10men.

Fitness levels are a disgrace. Every player was blootered after 75minutes. The football there after was non existent although i wouldn't exactly say there was much of it before hand.

We need to create that sense of fear at Ibrox again. That fear when the opposition looks a Ranger in the eye he is already beaten.

Forget Mcleish. he's had his stint and the game has moved on remarkably since. Whoever it may be who comes in to replace Pedro rest assured the board MUST get it right or its goodnight Vienna.


1.) 26 Oct 2017 12:38:40
How can you appeal for calm then list all the things that are wrong? 2nd was our target this season like it or not pedro has to go before the damage is beyond repair there is not one team in our top flight I'd be confident in beating just now we are direction less. as you say fitness woeful
Saturday for me is the tipping point, If we lose descion to go should be a fornality and be taken out of his control board need to act DOF needs to come out and explain system going on behind scenes with the latest story about Wallace etc being told to stay away

Someone like Mazzarri would be class.

Unfortunately he's being linked with west ham and ac milan with both managers under pressure.

Score Mazzarri off the list it won't happen unfortunately.

Dont know about you guys but my arse is making buttons waiting on the announcement!

Pena makes me want to cry every time i watch him. there's so much potential there for him to become a cult hero and be at the club for years but.

Hes just missing that something that can't be coached and i'm afraid that's why he will never be a success at Ibrox.

If you cast your mind back to last season.

Celtic v st. mirren

St. mirren literally had them on the ropes.

Brendan Rodgers said its the best team celtic had played all season.

Jack Ross. Great shout

Poetry Doiger. The board are weak and lack vision with these appointments.
