Are we being linked to anyone from Swansea?
My mate was at Ross Hall yesterday afternoon being assessed for a knee op. He is not a football fan but told me there was a "big" guy having a medical and that he had a Kit bag with the Swansea football badge on it.

Hope it might be for us rather than the Brenda connection.

A big Swansea fan maybe?

2.) 31 Aug 2016 16:12:58
apparently rangers will be making no signings today, so i wouldn't get your hopes up lads. Hopefully it ain't true but i fear the worst myself as well.

Senderos has signed.

4.) 31 Aug 2016 16:46:33
Senderos has just been confirmed. Contract till the end of the season.

5.) 31 Aug 2016 16:55:53
No signings will be made today other than Senderos, sorry lads but we just don't have the funds to compete with the funds Celtic have. Just not ready to compete with them just yet.

6.) 31 Aug 2016 17:34:07
Sadly our so called benefactor, Dave King, does not appear to be as willing to invest as Desmond does at Celtic. I am not a fan of Desmond but in the past he has funded deals, such as Keane, and given that King expects us to finish first two he hasn't exactly spent much, if any of his own £millions to improve the playing squad.

Thankfully they did not improve either their management or their team when we were in the footballing doldrums so we are not that far behind them however our return to the SPL has clearly motivated them to significantly improve both their management team and their playing staff.

From our perspective, with the arrival of Senders, hopefully we will see the back of Kiernan and Hill but our central defence will still be at risk on the break and a fast, quality centre back really should have been acquired.

I just hope that we can hold on to Waghorn and that he is not sold to balance the books.

7.) 31 Aug 2016 20:14:24
go over to the celtic page and ask them if you think Desmond invests!

8.) 31 Aug 2016 17:40:11
4 games in and the hobgoblins think the league is won! . love being the underdog and coming from behind. keeping words in the right place not my strong point however! #55.

Told last night from very good source that the reason for delay in manager is that the main target is with another club and compensation is being discussed.
In case it falls through then next choice won't feel like 2nd choice?


1.) 09 Jun 2015 20:57:15
Apparently Rangers are talking to Aberdeen to sort out compensation for Derek McInnes.
Would rather have Warburton and Weir to be honest.
Don't think McInnes offers anything better than McCall.

2.) 10 Jun 2015 01:35:50
Clubs tend to have more than one iron in the fire and when they decide through illimination ( by candidates or by club ) to appoint a particular person , this person is first choice .

3.) 11 Jun 2015 14:01:08
I heard a strong rumour that McInnes is going to get the job if they can sort out compensation.

Anyone who reckons Warburton is a manager after this is deluded.
He constantly plays wrong formation, constantly plays guys that are next to hopeless at times and the worst of all? he plays players out of position.

Record shows we have not lost at ibrox in a while, on this performance we have 3 gubbings coming up. The sheep, tarts and tims.


1.) 30 Nov 2016 22:25:51
Why are we surprised at the result! Kiernan and Wilson is a joke partnership and neither of them are Rangers class although I have to ask what the hell David Weir is doing since I would have thought he would have the gumption to either develop them or tell Warburton to get rid!

There is a reason why Jason Holt left Hearts; he is a Championship player that is totally out of his depth in the top league and I will say it again, Wallace is never a leader and tonight he was a pathetic excuse for a full back as well. He was given the runaround by Patterson!

Defensively, only Tavernier and the goalkeeper come away from that game with any credit.

In midfield only Halliday is worth mentioning, he was Rangers best player. The rest were not worth the admission money and unfortunately Dodoo struggled although his goal should have stood.

That team is leaderless, they don't have a winning mentality, they don't, (with few exceptions), understand what playing for Rangers is about. They lack fight, the lack team spirit, I'd like to say that they are one dimensional but they are not even that.

I am starting to agree with Joey Barton and definitely agree with McCann. The summer signings have been a total joke; a mixture of injured players and players that are frankly not good enough. It was clear for all to see that Crooks was not match fit tonight, I could go on but its pointless.

If Warburton goes then he will be replaced by some other second rate manager or worse still, Weir will get the job, because any manager worth considering will want a transfer budget that is not there.

It look like King went for Warburton based on his exploits at Brentford without thinking it through and to be fair, most of us supported him.

Celtic, much as it pains me to say it, have set the standards with the appointment of the ex Liverpool guy. We need someone better!

2.) 30 Nov 2016 22:29:38
@gosman - and I bet you've never been a manager but seem to think you are by your post?

3.) 30 Nov 2016 22:38:58
Tomusa, I agree with every point you make except tav getting pass marks. He was sleeping for both goals.

4.) 30 Nov 2016 22:40:55
Tavernier comes away from that game with credit? Was I watching a completely different game?

5.) 30 Nov 2016 22:42:15

Tavernier was at fault for both goals. How do you reckon he gets pass marks?

6.) 30 Nov 2016 23:07:54
Tom USA, are you serious? Holliday was shocking and Tav almost single- handed gave away two goals. Crooks was thrown in to an alien position to accommodate Halliday, leaving it for Holt to be the creator (which he never had been or could be) . I'm sick of everyone praising Halliday when he can neither, tackle, make a basic pass, cross or be in the position he's meant to be in. Barton might have thought he would have an easier ride in Scotland but, imagine how he must feel being jettisoned for a donkey like Hallidsu. MW must now go and get a caretaker manager to see us through til we can attract someone with a modicum of tactical nous.

7.) 30 Nov 2016 22:58:21
tav and halliday were probably the worst players on the pitch.

Good manager or not?

Since we beat celtic in the cup semi and not counting friendlies or the stupid league cup section we have played 10 games.

4 championship games (overwhelming favs) 2 draws and 2 losses.
1 cup final, gubbed.

This season, 5 premiership games (overwhelming favs in 4 of them) .
2 wins 2 draws and another gubbing.

At any other time this would result in the manager being shown the door.

How things have changed.


1.) 12 Sep 2016 17:34:45
I think his statement about lustig shows how poor a manager he is, forgetting the fact he's trying to get a player sent off, but he hadn't even been booked by then.
It just stinks of covering his own arse, I've said since the cup defeat from st Johnstone last year, he has severely under estimated the spl, and thought he would overturn us up here, it's no embarrassment getting beat from Celtic, as they are light years away from Rangers, but dropping points to hearts and Aberdeen will set the cat amongst the pigeons.

2.) 12 Sep 2016 17:43:56
this isn't like any other time! we have just been promoted after ears out the spl, we don't have brilliant players like we have had in the past. in those 4 championship games we still won the league so it is irrelevant. do you expect us to win every game?

3.) 12 Sep 2016 18:15:01
I expect with the players and budget we have to beat all the teams that don't have our resources. Obviously that is never the case but since the cup semi, his record is shocking.

A lot of rangers supporters are unrealistic to where the club should be considering the financial position at the moment, though it is in a much better position than it's been in a long while on the field and behind the scenes that's not good enough for by the looks of it a good number of fans, our management and players must occasionally question sanity levels up here.

6.) 12 Sep 2016 20:43:42

What are your expectations?

7.) 12 Sep 2016 21:37:59
When we got promoted and looking at delias celtic i thought we had a fair chance. Being honest rodgers has made a huge difference to them so 2nd is the aim and fairly so given the gulf in finances. We have always went on winning streaks then rough patches. I think with a full squad of new team mates and not many true leaders the confidence drops quick. If we get 2 or 3 good results in a row it could all turn.



26 Jul 2016 10:03:51
At the game last night i thought young Rossiter impressed when he came on and reminded me of Barry Ferguson when he was young (Gallus) lol.
Watched the recording this morning, and him in particular, and i now see him more like Fletcher in his day at Manu. Constantly making himself available and never wasted a pass and prepared to get stuck in.

This lad imo is a real gem in the making.

Your thoughts?


1.) 26 Jul 2016 11:21:29
I find it hard to compare him to fletcher or fergie as I've only seen him play for rangers for 30 mins but maybe down the line you can draw comparison.

I've seen the boy play for Liverpool a few times and England u19's at the Euro's and I think gosman is spot on with the Fergie comparison. We didn't see him play any long balls last night but just wait till you do, he can land a cross field ball on a hapeney.
The Liverpool fans have been calling him the new Gerrard for years, and whilst I can see some comparisons due to his tackling and long range passing, I think somewhere in between the two is more accurate. And let's face it it's not a bad place to be.
He will be the signing of the century for us, he's that good. Between him, Windass and Dodoo we have uncovered some of the best young talent in English football for 250k each and hopefully Crooks proves to be as good as well. Add them to young McKay and we have THE best young talent in the country right now, imo.

5.) 26 Jul 2016 12:20:16
It's certainly going to be good value for the paying supporter watching some good players play really good attacking football.

6.) 26 Jul 2016 12:47:57
Fletcher was rank and couldn't even tackle hope he turns out better than him.

7.) 26 Jul 2016 13:25:30
fletcher of man u was rank? are u serious mate!
one of the first names on the teamsheet when he was fit and u say he was "rank"? wow

anyway i thought he was like a young barry ferguson when i saw him for the England unders and when i saw him last night he has that energy barry had when he was younger and will be worth millions in a couple of years time.

8.) 26 Jul 2016 15:35:23
it's easy to look descent with Roy Keane, Paul Scholes, Michael Carrick etc. around you. all he did was run around and try Hollywood passes, from what I've seen of rossiter he looks like he is 10x the smarter player than a player like Fletcher and he can tackle.

Cee, once again you are wrong. Buying success did not come into it.

Weir stated that £100 million might not be enough to close the gap on the Dims so i repeat, what planet is he on?

Management team? we don't have one.

We have 1 guy that thinks we don't need defenders and that Garner is a top class striker that he wasted £1.8 mil on.
Another guy (Weir) that thinks a £100 mil wouldn't be enough to challenge for the SPL.
What planet are these 2 on .

I am just glad we don't have £100m to give them.

Because he is clueless.
Paying £1.8 mil for Garner as a goalscorer tells you that

I would give him nothing in the Jan window and if he can't finish 2nd with the squad he has then the only thing he would get in the summer would be his P45.

The man is a poor excuse for a manager.
