Hate doing this but I was told by someone that seems to be in the know. That yes Gerrard is coming and that King is stepping back to just be on the board and be a shareholder. Investment is coming from USA. No idea who, no idea how much. didn't have much time to speak to the guy. He did say its expected to all be done within the next 2 weeks so am assuming end of season. Just passing on.


1.) 02 May 2018 10:35:25
We all have our own assumptions of King but he is a very astute and competent businessman. Can't help but think there is shrewd reason as to why he's missed the share deadline and is there a bigger picture regarding what you have mentioned.

2.) 02 May 2018 10:49:16
Letting himself be dragged through the courts in SA for years due to his tax dodging wasn't very astute. And his dealings with the Takeover Panel haven't been very competent have they?

3.) 02 May 2018 11:21:44
We've met to have huge investment for the for the past 2year n still waiting lol

4.) 02 May 2018 17:59:45
And an astute business man would have money king has stood up in a court of law and says he has none. So he's either skint or a conman. No room for either at our club in my eyes

5.) 02 May 2018 19:56:01
What do we all think will happen if big investment is made in our club? That the investors are just putting money in because they have a few quid spare in the bank and won't miss it? If the stated 25-30mil investment is coming what is it going to be brokered against. That is my only concern. An for that matter i'm sure that 30mil wouldn't be far off what would be needed to buy our club at this point in time. i'm not buying into this whole situation.



19 Mar 2018 13:49:37
I think something you have to realise is that managers like steve clarke and tommy wright. Don't have opposition sitting with 11 men behind the ball setting up banks of defence. Rangers and celtic do. Did Steve Clarke make an amazing tactical change in the game to re address the game play? no he had his team set out one way, defend first and foremost then try find a goal. celtic can dominate play with there midfield so its a lot harder to score against them if you don't have the ball. We try it but can't do it.

I don't think Murty is the answer but I am not demanding him out. Possibly the main reason is who the hell can we get that will fill his place? and be a guarantee top manager? If there is money from the share issue. Forget getting players in first. Spend it on a manager. A great manager can work with lesser value players to create something.

Sometimes I actually feel out team is set out too attacking. Unfortunately we are were we are. Maybe a lot to do with pedro or the board or the players I honestly don't know. All we can ask is that we finish strong being tenacious and carrying abit of luck.


1.) 19 Mar 2018 14:54:05
Steve Clarke

2.) 19 Mar 2018 17:23:50
So your answer to beating teams that pack their defence against us is to play less attacking? When we currently start every game with one up top? Strikes as a bit of an odd one to me.

The issue we have when teams do this is that we don't have players with the guile or a bit of magic to break them down. At the weekend, to a man, every player was waiting on someone else to do something.

Windass pops up with goals but is too often hiding. Murphy is trying and has ability, but constantly cuts onto his right, running in field right to where the numbers are. We need wingers that will stretch a back line and a number 10 that puts his foot on the ball and can play a cute pass to open something up. Either that or commit to two up top more regular and let Cummings and Fredo try to build a partnership.

3.) 19 Mar 2018 17:24:40
I remain all for graeme murty to be given a chance, to become our permanent manager, at the end of the season, on a 12 month rolling contract! I honestly don't see a gamble on doing that! However, if this board of ours does decide to change, they should look at the fantastic record of belgian manager preud'homme has! He has a very impressive CV and is very experienced!

4.) 19 Mar 2018 18:29:54
See these days Coop mate, I reckon youd be quicker listing the folk you don't rate ;)

5.) 19 Mar 2018 22:29:32
I'm really wondering now if supercoop is actually one of the other mob. We have not progressed one little bit bar playing some fancy football against non league and lower league teams yet he wants to persist with the current manager. Why anyone could be happy with the way this season has went I will never know and murty has played a massive part in that. We are in real danger in finishing with a worse points tally than last season which included some dreadful results and a change in management. I'm sorry but I'm not going to happily accept scraping to be 2nd best and that will continue under murty

6.) 20 Mar 2018 08:09:41

Think we will probably beat last years points however not by many and i agree about Murty we haven’t moved forward as some fans seem to think. He isn’t the answe and it’s astonishing some still can’t see this

7.) 20 Mar 2018 08:59:32
maybe I am overthinking but on TV after match Clarke made a point about saying his brothers were big Killie fans thereby distancing himself from the dark side which is the team I have been told the family support and have seen that on here.
I do not know the family at all but does anyone know for sure if he is from a Killie or Dhim background?

8.) 21 Mar 2018 02:30:44
Murty ain't the answer . Billy Davies. de Boer no. Eddie Howe Sean dyche young managers who. manage with what they have no big transfer budgets but bloody successful . dint they prove that week in week out in think. howe or dyche next manager

9.) 23 Mar 2018 10:39:57
Murty is a good coach and now we have a dof in place i see no reason to bin murty off i think its pretty obvious that Mark Alan is recruiting the players murty is doing a fair job i think he should be given a full season to see what he can do if we shed some dead weight and bring in a few good replacements i think we could hit the ground running starting from scratch again could be costly



05 Mar 2018 20:20:49
I don't think we will see that formation against them. We will need 5 in the middle with one up front and after that showing to me it has to be cummings up front. One word describes that boy and its 'gallus'. Its something we have not had in a while. The swagger, the belief in his own abilities. The cockiness. Let him loose on them.


1.) 05 Mar 2018 22:32:20
Personally I don't think he's strong enough to play there on his own. The Celtic defence bad though it is would hammer him.
He's the nearest thing to ally McCoist we've had for years, deadly from 10 yards but not a lot else. Morelos will run the legs of them, put himself about and hold up the ball.



24 Dec 2017 20:36:46
Pound to a penny Derek McInnes becomes the manager at the end of the season.


1.) 24 Dec 2017 21:42:58
No chance will derek mcinnes EVER be the glasgow rangers manager! I for one am glad about that, as delboy mcinnes hasn't got it to be our manager! He had his chance and knocked it back! Unfortunately for him he'll never be asked again! The guy is an absolute choker and our job is too big for him!

2.) 26 Dec 2017 00:37:29
Supercoopereleven. . what a load of pants! The guy is a choker? On what grounds? He is streets ahead of Mr Murty. absolute streets ahead. Just because his Aberdeen team can't beat a Celtic team which cost millions to assemble doesn't mean he is a choker. Its not the players fault then? They can beat everybody else but when they are rubbish against Celtic it's the managers fault. I cannae believe I'm answering u. I must be just as daft as you. You must have been a great team player. When u win u r magic, a brilliant player and when u lose its the managers fault. does that even sound normal in your head before you put it doon in writing?

3.) 26 Dec 2017 03:18:35
Mcinnes had his chance, He doesn't deserve to be given another. I hope it all works out with Murty. The guy is very knowledgeable on the game you can tell that in his interviews, has a good relationship with the players and looks to be blooding youngsters into the first team. Something we should've done 5 years ago in division 3. Not paying stupid money for Ian Black and John Daly ect.

4.) 26 Dec 2017 10:44:06
OK Dutch! How many big games has delboy mcinnes won? Graeme murty our UNDER 20'S COACH, was tactically too good for mcinnes in our double header against the sheep! He has said time and time again how fabulous celtic are and how he just can't beat them! If that's someone you're wanting at ibrox as our longterm answer to catching celtic, then good for you! I certainly don't because like i said and i stick by it, delboy mcinnes chokes/ bottles it in the must win bigger games! Graeme murty imo is a better choice at this particular time, than mcinnes is, to be our manager! Not i'm not for 1 minute saying murty was originally my no.1 choice but in our current system with a DOF murty is a better fit than mcinnes, simple as that! Check mcinnes's big game record out for yourself and for that matter his record as bristol City manager, its deplorable mate!

5.) 26 Dec 2017 15:01:16
Maybe, just maybe Supercooper he had a wee look under the bonnet and realised there was NOTHING any good manager could do with the team and the plans the board had? Is that not possible? He didn't want to be the next Mcoist / Mcall/ Warburton etc, basically every manager since The Rangers started in the lowest division .



11 Dec 2017 18:00:50
TBH I thought that DM would jump at the chance to come to us, no matter how long the board took to offer him the deal, but I was wrong, for whatever reason he decided to stay at the sheep. Murty has done well but I don't think he is just ready for first team.

I can't see them going for another manager who is under contract at a club cause if he refused to join, alarm bells would be seriously ringing, so can only see them picking someone out of work. An O'Neil or a McLeish or the likes. I could see McLeish or Murty taking over with a deal to the end of the season then if certain expectations are met and new deal could be sorted, but O'Neil would need a strong contract offered.

I do think we are all in the dark, no matter how many people say they know someone that knows something.
I seen paul murray at glasgow airport on thursday morning sitting outside the celtic shop at 08:00am (which I actually did) . But chinese whispers from that and someone will say we are trying to get BR to manage us.

This is gona be a sit back and see who actualy comes through the door and fingers crossed he hits the ground running, there are still trophies to be won.


1.) 11 Dec 2017 18:31:55
we can all have a guess but with no obvious candidate it could literally be anyone!

2.) 11 Dec 2017 19:09:35
Who is BR

3.) 11 Dec 2017 20:35:36
Am fed up hearing about DM am over the moon his ar. e collapsed did ney want him or his backroom staff now end of don't want his name mentioned on here again its no as if it was sir Alex oh there a shout!

4.) 12 Dec 2017 08:06:55
To be fair as no one seems to know who a realistic target is they might be able to keep it quiet. I would love De Boer but would he take it and would he take it knowing he was second choice to DM

5.) 12 Dec 2017 08:09:09
Bang right mate. DM decided no.

14 Jun 2018 08:59:02
With 2 new young defenders in and an seasoned professional like Alves and cover with mcrorie in the squad. Would we not be wasting money if any deal was to reappear for skrtel. Just seems he is not really needed now. Money could be spent on right back and strikers.


1.) 14 Jun 2018 09:52:47
What if Alves leaves and Goldson or Katic are injured?
Skrtel is on a massive salary which In my opinion makes the move highly unlikely but u never know.
I do agree we need a couple of strikers and if Morelos is part of the Skrtel deal we will need to sign 3 strikers.
We need another CB but is Skrtel the one but we also need to keep Morelos unless we are offered a fee we can't refuse.

2.) 14 Jun 2018 10:10:46
Totally agree. Neither Goldson or Katic have signed up to sit on the bench and neither should. Skrtel's no longer needed and it would be an insane deal to bring him in at 33 and lose Morelos at 21. The young striker is a talented footballer and still learning and Fenerbahce must know they're chancing their arm. Can't see Gerrard falling for it.



10 Jun 2018 17:53:30
I still think Alves has a place in our squad. SG will come with new ideas and someone like Alves can't be dropped. Don't know his wages but will. Assume he is up there in the highest paid, but still think he is that no nosense defender we need. Pair him next to someone with ability and that defence will seal itself. Shagger in goal makes me feel more comfortable any way. Let the midfield play the football. Let the defenders keep the ball away from the goal.
Apologise, hot weather and alcohol and all I can think about is bring on the first competitive game to see what SG can do. 🇬🇧😎


1.) 10 Jun 2018 18:20:01
Spot on fintytint! Said this on these rumours pages all along mate!
Bruno Alves is the best centre half at ibrox and imo we should most definitely be keeping him!

2.) 10 Jun 2018 18:42:47
Also I want to buy a strip that's money goes to the club with Alves on the back.

3.) 10 Jun 2018 18:44:13
If I’m honest I really hope we sign better younger and fitter players who can play a high pressing game, but we’ll see

4.) 10 Jun 2018 18:45:48
Bruno Alves is crocked and cannot be available to play on a ongoing basis. V Good player at his best but not up to it any longer.

5.) 10 Jun 2018 18:58:38
Bankie, what do you mean Bruno Alves is crocked? Does the Portugal manager know this?

6.) 10 Jun 2018 19:09:10
If Bruno is injured why is he going to Russia?

7.) 10 Jun 2018 19:41:03
Id be happy with bruno and goldson next year. Still need to bring in at least one more cb esp if cardoso leaves

8.) 10 Jun 2018 21:17:18
I think with the world cup this year Bruno Alves didn't give 100% in fear of being crocked IMO, but if he's still with us next season I think you will see a different attitude!

9.) 10 Jun 2018 23:30:34
If we can become a more solid unit think Alves along side goldson could be good. I still think cardoso deserves another shot as I do think he has potential so if we can get one more real decent centre back we will have 4 good options to chose from but definitely think Alves should stay and I do think when Gerard is assessing the squad he would want Alves to stay.

10.) 11 Jun 2018 06:48:11
I’d rather have Konterman or Svensson than Cardoso, it’s sole destroying watching a centre half that can’t head the ball or tackle.

11.) 11 Jun 2018 09:34:26

Konterman was awful however what a strike against them in the cup

12.) 11 Jun 2018 11:44:13
Both alves and Cardoso are rubbish
stop kidding on now

13.) 11 Jun 2018 11:53:06
We'd kill to have a player of the quality of Konterman, there is no better defender in the Scottish game at the moment.

It's not even close, multi capped dutch international

14.) 11 Jun 2018 12:59:54
Konterman is quality

jesus what is going on?

15.) 11 Jun 2018 13:17:23
ArthurD - yeah I’ll never forget that after them cheering his name in the line up. Awful player but great goal! (P. s. do you think it was a clearance up the park? 😂😂😂)

16.) 11 Jun 2018 22:11:42
To everyone who is rubbishing Alves, think back to the last game of the season at Easter road, 3 down after 20 odd minutes, Alves comes on and totally re-organises the Rangers defence, starts to dominate the game and scores a world class free kick. what more do you want, maybe if he was playing with better players around him instead of shite players then we wouldn't have conceded as many goals



28 May 2018 08:48:02
Honestly am getting really sick of this constant berating and chastising of SG in his decision to join Rangers, from the media. Instead of the media using this to the advantage of scottish football they have turned it into their little addition to attack the club. We all know we don't have the best players we all know we don't have the funds the club used too but we are living within our means. The enjoyment of telling us the club can't afford skrtels wages.
Steven Gerrard hasn't even been in the door yet and the media are drooling over the hope that its a massive implosion and the walls come crumbling down around him. They would enjoy nothing more than to watch the mans career fall apart up here then after he leaves blame rangers and claim he was a great manager its just the football club that cost him his job.
As a fan obviously i want nothing but success for him and the club, but almost on bar i want the media forced to write positive stories about our club instead of some of the tripe they come out with now.
I mean they have the cojones to write king is lying to the fans pot kettle black from half those media outlets.


1.) 28 May 2018 10:11:48
The stories in the media are ridiculous! I don't buy papers but google rangers to catch up on any news, scolling past the dribble. All the hoorah of a funfair when Gerrard signed as manager was swiftly followed by all this negativity and dragging up old history. I would call on all Rangers fans not to react to any photos, stories, captions or headlines that are put out after a bad result that make Gerrard or any new players look like poor appointments. It happens all the time, one well taken photo can make a man look a dumplin or genius. We're the 12th man on that pitch and we've got to use that to our advantage. We're not as rich as them, we're trying to build and grow, it doesn't always work out well, mistakes will happen but we are The Rangers and we know we'll topple them eventually. Do not react! let's go!

2.) 28 May 2018 10:16:48
Spot on mate, just read Keith Jacksons aricle in the Daily Record today, that says it all

3.) 28 May 2018 12:12:24
Bottom line is, Rangers were hammered and on the brink on two occasions in the last 6 years. Had to fight our way back from the third division (think if the tables were turned and it was Celtic in that position they would be placed in the third? Not a chance), certain people in the media cannot accept that a name like Gerrard is honoured to have been asked to manage the football club and regardless of such a great risk, he cannot turn it down, due to the sheer size of the club and job.

People like Jackson, Chris McLaughlin, Tom English etc can't take it.

Just wait until the tide turns and we are on top, you think this is bad when we are sitting third the past two seasons? We've seen nothing yet.



24 May 2018 08:31:48
Hey. So after speaking to a mate about what our realistic expectations are for next season and what we would class as improvement/ success from SG. This being talked about in the terms of SG bringing in some of the more realistic signings not skrtel, defoe or the likes.
Personally I would accept 2nd place, a cup final with a run in europe as a bonus. don't get me wrong I want more but its not what I want its what I would class as enough proof that the following season he would improve more and obviously my expectations would be higher. My friend said atleast a trophy, 2nd place and into groups in europe.
What are your takes on what you expect/ hope for next season.


1.) 24 May 2018 08:39:29
Forget group stages in Europe. Have a look at the teams we’d need to beat in the 2nd qualifier never mind 3rd and 4th.

2.) 24 May 2018 09:34:53
It would be easier to win the league than go on a run in Europe. In fact, imo it's harder to get from the qualifiers to the group stage than it is to get from the group stage to, for example, the quarter finals. The league won't be easy but i think if we put c****c under any sort of pressure next season, Brenda will bottle it.

3.) 24 May 2018 10:12:19
I love the Brendan will bottle it comments. was it not super Stevie G slipping that cost Liverpool the title rather than BR bottling it. PMSL

4.) 24 May 2018 10:31:44
Aye markiebhoy this will be the 3rd season meltdown or the impending timplosion they keep banging on about hh

5.) 24 May 2018 12:41:54
oh mankybhoy. another ill informed troll

think you will find that is brendas inept tactics against palace throwing away a 3 nil lead that cost title. the gerrard slip in previous game didn't end title challenge. would still have won league without Brenda blowing the 3 nil league. so pipe doon troll

6.) 24 May 2018 13:23:08
jbf500.just for your information Brendan wasn't actually playing when they let a 3 - 0 lead slip away, pretty sure MR SG would have been though. so who's bottle crashed, the manager or the superstar players actually on the field. answers on a postcard to DOUBLE TREBLE. HISTORY MAKERS.

7.) 24 May 2018 14:23:45
Think you meant tainted double treble history makers what a joke bragging about winning three trophy in a one horse race wait till the usual timplosion in europe then we can see how good brenda is and Broony comes out with grass too long, not wet enough UEFA are against us what a fud he is

8.) 24 May 2018 20:55:33
Markiebhoy you are playing a blinder confirming the lack of intelligence in the stands ar Celtic Park

My comment states Brenda tactics bottled it. as he does not have the tactical nous to change when needed

Ofcourse you will state his tactics beat us and rest of scotland. but no great feat when we had pedro and murty in charge

Keep drinking the koolaid and one day tou might make sense

Until then enjoy the 7 (3 that count)

9.) 24 May 2018 22:49:23
So many wee bhoys so confident that they'll keeping monopolising success that they spend their time trolling on here. Oh dear, oh dear. How utterly wretched your miserable lives must be :^)



30 Apr 2018 10:09:23
I personally think putting steven gerrard as our first team manager is unreal. When did Rangers become the place an under 18's manager goes to find out if he can be a first team manager? We need experience, we need grit, we need tactics, we need players playing for the jersey, we need directors following the same direction putting the clubs interests first. I see none of that.
This isn't Steven Gerrard coming to play in our midfield, this is him coming to manage this great club. He has been managing under 18 football for just over 1 year. don't think of the player. that's not what we are getting. don't compare Souness as Souness had huge amounts of money and took over at a time where english teams couldn't play in europe and the players were looking for clubs.
I am not denying that he could cause interest from certain players to join but he is not a proven manager the thing we were all crying out for but since the name Steven Gerrard has been mention some feel that requisite doesn't matter any more.
I will support the next Rangers manager who ever they are but I think that Gerrard is just another gamble, as are all managers' but this one the odds are not in our favour.

I say let him sort his problem first. Then who knows, under new management new style of play he could come good. Look at the other lot, under Ronny a lot of those players looked terrible now new manager new ideas they have improved.

Well my wife has just went through me for not giving someone another chance.
I do however have personal experience with this type of crime and it still hurts, so I have an instant reaction to anyone that raises a hand to a woman.
So as the wife commands I will give the boy a chance.

mistakes? yes. Kicked a woman on the ground? No.
So cause Gary McCallister says its ok then we shouldn't judge him?
I have came across it a few times in my life and with everyone of them i can tell you these guys do not rehabilitate. So i make my judgement on experience as you are entitled to accept him as you personally may have different experiences/ opinions.
Lets just remember we were quick to brand stan collymore for what he done i don't see how this is different.
