Getting told today to get my money on a mam who is not even in the betting for next manager. Don't know if worth a fiver. UWe rosler Fleetwood town. Sure he managed Brentford when mw was sporting director.
1.) 16 Feb 2017 19:16:16
There might be wheels to this one
After all that Brentford link is in there
2.) 16 Feb 2017 22:29:06
Getting told today?
What are you talking about - what's the Brentford connection got to do with anything - surely we would be moving away from that and fleetwood town -? I mean I know things are bad but really let's be the laughing stock!
I think this is absolute nonsense
3.) 16 Feb 2017 22:29:58
There is no Brentford link that went soon as warburton went.
4.) 16 Feb 2017 22:14:16
Please no more brentford lol
5.) 17 Feb 2017 00:21:01
This is turning into a comedy page, not a rumours page.
6.) 17 Feb 2017 09:22:41
In my opinion it's pretty certain that we will appoint a manag r who understands the demands of the club. Forget guys like Uwe Rosler. Realistically McLeish, Wright or Davies (wouldn't pay for McInnes)
02 Mar 2017 19:36:04
Hearts have d. o f and already lost robbie Neilson, young cathro looks like he is struggling. Question is who do you blame? Is it his players or is it leveim players and cathro just coaches them. I think d. o. f is a dangerous road to go down.
1.) 02 Mar 2017 19:59:36
I am just pleased that we didn't go for Cathro! I guess that Robbie Neilson was not an easy act to follow! Our next manager won't have that problem!
2.) 02 Mar 2017 20:28:12
Cathro would not have lasted long at rangers. I still find it difficult to have a manager younger than some players. Only problem Tom is the manager can't be judged on the rest of this season if he comes in now.
3.) 02 Mar 2017 22:43:05
Fully agree Lance; with the length of time that the Directors have taken to make these appointments I would like to think that they have been doing their homework and not just tossing a coin and hoping it comes up heads!
I would like to think that the new manager will be given a transfer kitty, (don't ask me how), so that he can bring in his own players. I reckon that a number of our players are underperforming and hopefully they will perform for the new guys!
4.) 02 Mar 2017 23:44:12
I think the fact that they have been interviewing candidtes for the best part of three weeks, drawing up shortlists, carrying out the due diligence you all scream for, studying the 'form' so to speak, not diving in head first, ascertaining what each candidate could bring to us under restrictive circumstances, all point to something a little more professional than 'tossing a coin'.
28 Feb 2017 17:12:43
Alex Neil now favorite for the job. Good young manager with more expirence tham when he left Hamilton.
1.) 28 Feb 2017 17:46:52
Would have him in a heartbeat but will never happen.
2.) 28 Feb 2017 18:05:09
25 to 1 to evens somebody on it?
3.) 28 Feb 2017 21:45:28
would need to pay compensation though, but good manager.
4.) 28 Feb 2017 22:07:28
I keep reading that we need someone with experience at a high level. Neil has been a manager for less than four years, a whole year more than Barry Ferguson. He also hates Rangers. I can never see a Rangers board ever who would think the appointment of Alex Neil as manager was acceptable.
5.) 28 Feb 2017 23:18:30
so what he is a celtic fan, he has done well at Norwich and Hamilton and that's all that should matter!
6.) 01 Mar 2017 07:31:13
mo Johnson, Neil McCann, amoroso, gattuso, porrini, novo and many more.
stein, mcgrain, dagliesh, provan and many more.
get a life who cares what team they supported, this rubbish is only relevant if your Scottish or Irish for some reason.
7.) 01 Mar 2017 07:38:11
It's pathetic isn't it? It shouldn't be relevant at all
8.) 01 Mar 2017 15:09:58
@wee-ecky- he's achieved a hell of a lot more in his 4 years as a manager than BF. You're another one who needs to move on from the year 1690 to allow the club to progress.
9.) 01 Mar 2017 17:00:29
Alex Neil does not hate rangers. He is not a Celtic fan
10.) 01 Mar 2017 18:01:00
Do u think Alex Neil will want to b the guy that stops 10 in a row then go back to visit family in Coatbridge. i don't think so
11.) 01 Mar 2017 17:51:30
why shouldn't it be relavant?
i hate celtic and if i played for them i'd give 100 percent but if i was managing them to be honest i'd try run them into the ground.
so if he hates rangers which he has all but admitted then why the hell would we want him in the managers job
11 Feb 2017 09:19:27
Everyone jumping the gun a little. The rangers job is not like our jobs where you get paid off and they let you work till the end of the week
Why did they take training and do the press conference yesterday if they had resigned earlier in the week?
1.) 11 Feb 2017 10:35:07
Lance, like everything at Rangers just now it doesn't seem to make any sense to me either the way this shambles has been dealt with.
2.) 11 Feb 2017 10:36:49
Someone has been silly;
Warburton if he handed in e before having the NF job offer
RFC if they have no formal notice that he was leaving
Hope its not us.
BTW its not the first time Weir has dishonoured us, he managed the Naismith situation from behind the curtains when the crap first started
3.) 11 Feb 2017 10:47:49
Lance, keep up. They wanted to resign as they thought they had the forest job, they told the board this. The board agreed this. The forest job fell through, so the board had a meeting yesterday to discuss this, they decided to accept the resignations as it was clear that mw and co were not committed to the club.
4.) 11 Feb 2017 12:16:40
Coldo u say keep up but your information is coming from the sun or dr, like lance said don't jump the gun.
5.) 11 Feb 2017 11:13:55
Those would seem to be the facts to date. Can't do that kind of thing in any employ never mind as a high profile football management team. Don't always say this but a big well done to the board for sticking to their guns. We need people who want to be at our great club and not use us as a fall back when plans go awry.
I don't think it will happen but I'd love to see Walter return until the end of the season and secure second spot. Alex McLeish would be my next port of call if Walter decides against it. The big man is well respected in football and has seen it and done it. The 2 helicopter Sundays in 2003 and especially 2005 will live with me forever.
6.) 11 Feb 2017 14:19:46
Good point, Jack Union, people forget that Weir orchestrated the Naismith move to Everton. That was about the only thing he did there, he was a rotten coach and failed miserably when he attempted management.
He gave Warburton less than no support at Rangers, he failed to instil any passion in the players and gave no help to Wallace to help develop his leadership qualities as captain.
08 Feb 2017 11:35:05
What's the chances of rangers v celtic 2 weeks in a row. League game is 12 March. 6th round Scottish cup 4th 5th March. Would everyone want that or would you want to avoid the cup match?
1.) 08 Feb 2017 12:24:21
Morton and calendar might fek that up tbh!
2.) 08 Feb 2017 12:59:09
No chance bill. Both shall win by 2 or more goals.
3.) 08 Feb 2017 15:21:54
I would rather we played Inverness but then we still have to get past Morton!
4.) 08 Feb 2017 17:53:07
Jelavic having a laugh surely. Would take him in a heartbeat but budget is more than stretched.
29 Dec 2016 13:17:13
I don't get the warburton needs time supporters on here. Only 2 players left in team from previous management and that is Wallace and miller.
Full year and a half and his formation is predictable, his subs are predictable and his after the game comments are predictable
Rodgers been there 5 month still using previous management team apart from 2 or 3 players and not lost a game all season. It's not time needed it's change or the gap shall just get bigger.
1.) 29 Dec 2016 14:37:01
Mate read that back. Warburton only has 2/ 3 players of the current squad so what 20 odd new players? Since he took over, Rodgers walked into a team and made 2/ 3 signings and is flying not exactly a massive reshuffle warburton has had to deal with? So do you think we should still have law and Sheils and Nicky Clark and we'd be competing for first now?
2.) 29 Dec 2016 14:47:51
No mate. But it's his team his players his tactics. How long do you need with players? Always expected celtic to win the league but not one person on here can say they expected to be 16 possible 19 points behind at xmas.
3.) 29 Dec 2016 16:28:25
Fair enough I agree that if you look at the points we dropped minus the Celtic and hearts away games we should have been good enough to take the 3 points maybe been looking a bit more rosey points wise but doesn't help that Celtic have had their best start since o neill was manager.
4.) 30 Dec 2016 10:45:04
The problem is the quality of players at Warburton's disposal and the finance available to improve the team. He has been unlucky with injuries. Crooks, Rossiter, Krancjar and Windass would surely all have been starters ahead of guys like Halliday and Holt and although it is only guess work that they would have been any better, quite frankly they could not have been any worse.
As a squad we are currently missing at least four, possibly five, top quality players that would start games every week. We have failed to build a solid spine and that is where we are suffering the most although neither of our fullbacks are out and out defenders. Unfortunately there are not a lot of Porini's about these days and we seem incapable of scouting players outside of the UK!
We are now playing for second and that is certainly not a given with the current (fit) playing staff. I personally believe that we need three players in January, two central midfield players and a proper striker. If any players, for example Kiernan are transferred then they will also need to be replaced. We should be looking for at least two more Pre-contract signings at least English Championship quality and to put it bluntly, the Board needs to find the investment to make it happen!
05 Mar 2017 22:42:17
SuperCooper, very harsh on the guy who wants time to think about it. After today's story then can you blame him for not being sure as no one else is sure.
You backed warburton for a full 18 month when everyone could see at end of last season he had his flaws,
you now want to back murty after 2 home wins against st Johnston and Hamiltom. I would hold my judgement till after next weekend because if rangers get a hiding then the knives shall be out for the guy. Very nice lad and speaks well but rangers managerial material I'm not so sure.
10 Feb 2017 07:28:45
its always somebody else fault James eh! its a rumours/ banter site. enjoy it and stop taking it too serious.
09 Feb 2017 17:28:48
Cullin 72, I think Murray knew what he was doing. He has walked away scot free from a situation that paul Daniels would not have fixed. Yes Whyte green Ashley have all messed up and put rangers where they are today but Murray is still never blamed by the majority of rangers fans. So I ask why not?
08 Feb 2017 22:03:48
He has lost the plot, going on about stats today. 26 shots at goal 15 corners against Ross County, any other day we would have won the game
Celtic played them off the park in semi final of cup yet he said the gap was closing? Can't have it both ways.
08 Feb 2017 18:02:31
Can I remind you that favorite son had already won the Scottish league and a cup winners cup with Aberdeen. Surely you can't be comparing the 2 managers😅😅
12 Mar 2017 14:17:06
Deserved point today and it's says a lot when Gordon was Celtics best player. Thought Rodgers made mistake taking off Armstrong as rangers started dominating after he went off.
11 Mar 2017 23:05:59
Ha ha bluedie, which one would you give us lol. Guys wherever you are watching the game stay safe and have a good day.
11 Mar 2017 21:23:30
No they are just rubbish lw nothing to do with pressure. I have been to many Scottish finals in my sport played great some years played rubbish other years but I enjoyed every minute of them and I'm not getting paid anything. The bigger the crowd the better you should perform, what a life these guys have.
11 Mar 2017 17:26:21
Well they should not be playing football if they can't handle pressure. Pressure is paying your rent every week keeping your kids fed and watered. Naive? Your having a laugh.
11 Mar 2017 13:19:08
Lw, I don't get that? Any professional should go out and enjoy and play without fear every week. Playing in front of 50.000 fans and getting paid fortunes what is there not to enjoy. Try 40 hours a week lifting bricks or plasterboard.
