Evening Ed.

After that horror show today somethings needs to be done urgently or we will have no european football next season whatsoever. Do you think there is any serious chance of steven gerrard coming to us and if he does would this signal major funding for summer spending. I see it this way it is a risky chance being taken if he doe's get the job. But with his links with liverpool we could gain some good talent on loan from them and with him being a big name player world wide people could come just because he is manager. I just wish that this nightmare we are in would end and soon. something has to happen in the next few days regarding manager and investment or we are doomed.


{Ed001's Note - I have no idea what Gerrard will decide and it is up to him. As for funding, I really think it depends on what you call major. Gerrard will not take it if he does not feel he would have the backing to compete.}

1.) 30 Apr 2018 09:01:40
Gerrard is not the saviour! He is a big name ex player who has less coaching experience than Pedro, McCoist, McCall and Murty. Whatever players he brings, if ANY, will still need to be coached. We are going backwards. An under 20s coach to an inexperienced U18s coach in Gerrard. Everyone lumping in on this because of his playing reputation, take a minute and ask yourself why we can't get a half decent Cozch/ Manager. I can't believe people are happy with Gerrard but are dead against other (more experienced) names that have been mentioned.

2.) 30 Apr 2018 09:45:02
I don't see why SG would take the job? If he fails his career is dead before it starts. If Rangers want to challenge they need 4 or maybe 5 quality players. SG may get a couple of decent loan deals but any manager needs time. This King talk about guaranteeing success is rubbish. As for major investment, what is major investment. Rangers owe £17mill now. So that needs paid off with maybe another £17mill plus on top. The only way to get that back is CL football. Can't see who would want to throw £35mill into any Scottish club. The only way is to slowly grow. Look at Hibs. No debt, decent squad. Not obsessed with any other club. Supporters enjoying their football. If supporters can't accept that then all that is ahead are more years of disappointment. No one is catching Celtic soon. Maybe win some silverwear but not the league. Don't see Aberdeen, Hibs etc expecting anything different so why should Rangers expect anything because they are Rangers?

3.) 30 Apr 2018 09:55:26
you don't need to be an experienced manager to be sucessful. also gerrard if he is to be our new manager will have experienced coaching staff with him. he was the type of player who would get stuck in if someone wasn't doing their job. also we are more likely to attract a better quality of player because of who he is. I am not saying he is the answer but i believe giving financial backing and the right coaching staff in place he might just be the answer.

4.) 30 Apr 2018 10:46:10
If he does take the job, it is a piece of marketing genius. All the media attention it will get, as it is now, puts the club in the spotlight even more and makes its more marketable product in the process, driving up sponsor deals.

5.) 30 Apr 2018 12:30:45
James09, give any decent manager the financial backing he needs and he has a good chance if success. I agree with that. The question is this, how much does he need. Well if Celtic don't strengthen then maybe £12 to £15mill. Celtic sell Dembele. Maybe £15mill topps for him. Buy Edouard so no difference. Lose Rogic and Armstrong which will happen. They need to spend £8MILL to replace so that's Dembele money gone but another £5 or £6 from Armstrong and Rogic. Tierney won't go. So they use the Rogic and Armstrong money to maybe go out and buy a couple more so the gap stays the same. Rangers have little to sell aoart from Morales who is Dembele is worth £15mill then Morales is not worth much more than £8 or £9mill topps.
Celtic have £30mill in the bank. If they qualify for CL again then another £25mill is getting banked. So if Celtic want to they can step up again. Issue is that right now till Rangers, Hibs and Aberdeen mount a challenge they don't need to. So in reality the new Rangers manager needs many millions and he won't get that. So Rangers fans have no change coming next year

6.) 30 Apr 2018 14:14:24
The best players don’t always cost the most. It’s about getting Value for your money. Ceptics Squad is full of players purchased for under a £1m including regulars like Dembele, Griffiths, Gordon, Tierney, Ajer, Rogic etc
Murphy £1.2m
Candeias £700k
Morelos £1m
Cummings £900k
Docherty £400k
Dorrans £1.5m?
Ryan Jack free
McCrorie Yth
Tav £250k
Windass £100k
Mcgregor Free
Arfield Free

Basically there’s value signings everywhere from Bosmans to loan market and minor fees, it’s about targeting 2-3 positions who are your weakest which i'd say includes both CHalfs and ensuring you get good players in on favourable terms, repeat process over next few windows and we have a team to compete. Regardless of how much cash they have they won’t sanction a deal of £8m plus for any player and there’s not many players with a high value that would consider joining Scottish football.
We have a good enough GK, LB, RB, CM x2 CAM x2 RW and LW and 2ST
We need 2 1st team CHalfs, back up or competition for both full back roles.
Jack, Holt, Halliday, Rossiter, Dorrans, Docherty, McCrorie for CM I’d punt 4 and bring in other starter in CM
Dorrans, Arfield and Windass for CAM I’d punt Windass and use funds for CB or CM
Need a wide player for back up to Candeias with Arfield covering Murphy if required again get shot of O’Halloran and Pena
Keep Morales unless we get £6m plus with Cummings and sign 1 more Striker, get shot of DoDo, Herrera, Miller (gone) Niko (gone)

I know it’s difficult getting shot of players on decent money but it’s possible to loan them out, get small fee or terminate their contract for a smaller fee.
Add steel, Heart, Desire and Pride into the mix and we will get back to where we belong again

7.) 30 Apr 2018 14:29:23
Well written the Glasgow ranger. I’d get rid tav, rumour Swansea want to buy for 3.5 Million. I’m afraid I have never rated him as a defender.

8.) 30 Apr 2018 20:55:20
I agree, Tav stepped up defensively for a while with Candeias helping him but recent old firms have highlighted his inabilities again, he like Windass is replaceable and I’d expect £2m for each, insert sell on clauses and use the funds wisely. Personally I’d have Arfield playing in the 10 with Dorrans as back up if the new manager is going to play that formation.
Next 3 games may define next Season in terms of who we can attract and budget. Obv if they win Cup top 4 will suffice for Europe but let’s make sure we get top 3 minimum and build again

all our so called fan's have to come on and apologise for saying alves feigned injury in the old firm game. it looks as though he will spend some time out of action now. shame on the lot of you. bruno is a professional and would never feign injury.


1.) 02 Jan 2018 19:20:59
Here here jamesreilly09!Some of our supporters just don't think before spouting or in this case accusing a thorough professional of feigning injury!

2.) 02 Jan 2018 20:29:37
Aye it was pretty clear from the look on his face that it was a pretty serious injury. Hope the big man recovers quickly and starts producing the form we all know he is capable of. The Rangers injury jinx strikes again. Nightmare!

3.) 03 Jan 2018 00:55:59
I wasnt one of them James. i said at the time it was ridiculous to accuse him of feigning injury



30 Dec 2017 20:11:43
You lot need to get a grip Bruno was injured he didn’t bottle it. This is a guy who has played in some of the biggest games in the world so he would handle an old firm game no problem. He left the hole on crutches so how is that feigning injury. Honestly we get a good result and fans slate our own players.


1.) 30 Dec 2017 20:29:02
i personally think we shoukd look to move on alves kranjcar herrera pena and rossiter the wages saved could easily get as at least 5 new players who are going to be in the first team making a diffrence not sitting on thr bench

2.) 30 Dec 2017 22:33:26
jamesreilly the old firm is the biggest game in the world! So not necessarily.

3.) 30 Dec 2017 23:14:40
What is peoples problem with Alves I don't get it but

4.) 31 Dec 2017 12:22:21
Deanobear, it appears to be the way some of our fans behave now - always looking for a scapegoat. Windass, Bates v Killie but now all of a sudden he's a world beater, Tav earlier in the season, Fod basically since he joined the club and now Alves. No wonder we drop more points at ibrox if this attitude is evident from the stands.



07 Dec 2017 22:22:08
rangers release statement confirming graeme murty will be in charge until at least the new year so he will be in charge for old firm game. i never wanted mcinnes so think we dodged a bullet there. i want giovanni in but doubt it will happen i can see it being mcleish or even walter smith.


1.) 07 Dec 2017 23:15:18
McInnes has just been gubbed twice by a team with caretaker manager who has no real 1st team experience. Why we went for him i don't know. I'm glad he didn't take the job

2.) 07 Dec 2017 23:23:54
I don't see a problem bringing McLeish in till the end of the season with Murty as his #2.

I like Murty, but he needs more experience before becoming our number one. Flawed or not, McLeish can give him that.

3.) 08 Dec 2017 01:03:32
mark allen tae f
ecks job GM boss see how it goes



03 Nov 2017 15:22:19
can i just send my best wishes to Fernando Ricksen and his family it seems his health has deteriorated. i am sure my thoughts will be echoed by both sides of the city. a real rangers legend.


1.) 03 Nov 2017 15:35:06
I second that sentiment.

2.) 03 Nov 2017 16:59:25
Yeah its a horrible disease and fernando is only 41 imagine knowing you're going to die and leave your family behind it must be devastating beyond belief, my heart goes out to anybody cruelly put in that position

3.) 03 Nov 2017 17:20:11
My brother in law had MND and for 5 years we could do nothing other than keep him as happy and comfortable as we could as he wasted away before our eyes till he died at 41.As you say terrible disease, every sympathy with Fernando and his family.

4.) 03 Nov 2017 17:29:07
We are all going to die sometime but the fact he is so young makes it a whole lot worse. I am sure they will finally find a cure for this disease but it is probably going to be a long way off. Anyway as i said thoughts are with his whole family at this sad time. I still cannot believe it.

5.) 03 Nov 2017 17:55:18
Who can forget Gazza? Like it or not he also has an illness, granted not the same or severe as Fernando but just like him he is and always will be a bear, my thoughts, best wishes and love to their families go out equally.

6.) 03 Nov 2017 18:51:07
I probably shouldn't get upset but we get some really strange people on here. Who would press disagree about poor Fernando-whether you liked him or rated him as a player the guy is dying from a horrible terminal illness where his mind remains active but his body slowly bit by bit gives up on him to the point of death. I'd like the person/ persons who disagree to come on and let us know why they think we should feel no sympathy for the guy and his family.

7.) 03 Nov 2017 19:27:32
A friend of the Ricksen family has just come out and rubbished these rumours. Fernando is no worse, thank God. Can't get my head around why anyone would start rumours like that. Sick f*cks

8.) 03 Nov 2017 20:16:36
rtrnrf if that was a dig at me about starting rumours. I would never be that sick to report rumours i merely stated what the press were reporting. whatever the case it is still obvious that Fernando will not be getting any better and it is still pretty a sad sight to see him suffer like this. my prayers are with him through this difficult time.

9.) 03 Nov 2017 20:46:06
Absolutely disgusting that some moron should press disagree. You should be ashamed of yourself

10.) 05 Nov 2017 09:38:54
Tragic seeing a once fit athlete deteriorate like this, i hope he lives out the rest of his life surrounded by love from all quarters. A worthy opponent and an even better man. God bless FR

11.) 05 Nov 2017 09:42:10
Just seen a picture on FB and he is in a hospital bed looks like the poor guy is at the end of a long fight
God bless you Fernando a true Ranger
I can see you and Davie Cooper showing all up there how it’s done.



14 Mar 2015 22:17:37
Ed have you seen the footage of what shots averladze done before he was sacked as manager of konyaspor. Amazing act of sportsmanship we need more like him in the game. Rangers legend.


{Ed001's Note - I saw that, much better than the usual 'gamesmanship' as they call it these days.}

1.) 15 Mar 2015 17:05:32
Always liked shots as a player, can u enlighten me as to what he done m8?

not another one slating alves i really am losing the will to live our player gets injured and all the fans turn on him. alves was clearly injured and would never bottle out of any game. get a grip you lot. alves is a class player and will be going to the world cup next year he has played all over europe in top games so why the hell would he bottle a old firm game. seriously. ed what do you think?

all the names being banded about are the same old names being linked with us previously i would like the board to show more ambition and go for someone like michael o'neill or even chris coleman. also we have big problems for the hearts game at the weekend. alves and cardoso out and danny wilson not fit enough. leaving only mccrorie as our recognised centre back. also dorrans almost certainly out and jack suspended. will rossiter be rushed back.

on alves will he want to leave now caxinha has gone.

a lot of issues to be sorted out in the weeks ahead and first thing murty has to do is try and unite the dressing room and hopefully get a positive result on saturday.

So Charlie miller knows everything happening inside kbrox seriously. Only when the club announces deals should we believe them to be true. Otherwise we would have 10'0000 players on our books.

no they are not because if this was true our press would have picked up on it as they have access to press reports world wide so i don't know where you got your info from.

morelos won't be going anywhere this window i would not be surprised if bruno alves left before the window closed i have heard that west brom and bournemouth are interested wether it is true or not i don't know. i cannot see anyone coming in either i think our business is done.

how the hell can you say alves bottled it the guy got took off injured. and he put in a vital header from one of their corners. clearly you must have been watching a different game. well done gers we should have won it in the second half though.

i put my post up before i found out about the statement it still does not excuse the fact the media have hounded rangers over the past few weeks when we have done nothing wrong we have kept it all private until business is concluded. the media in this country are a joke and always will be.
