Seen this in the Daily Rebel:

"Pedro Caixinha is ready to raid his former club for a defender who is also his godson.

The incoming Rangers boss has described Ghana star Rashid Sumaila as his "trusted centre-back". "

Already identifying defenders can only be a good sign.


1.) 10 Mar 2017 15:06:17
Or he's just signing his pals already, which is never a good thing as we know from past experience.

2.) 10 Mar 2017 15:23:41
Are any of his family agents?

3.) 10 Mar 2017 15:59:05
If he bring vlad with him I'll be happy

4.) 10 Mar 2017 16:04:33
It is a very misleading title. What it is implying is that Pedro has been his Godfather in a Mafia sense.

I am happy for the Manager to bring in players that he trusts and let's face it this makes a change from players being brought in from the lower leagues in England (although some of them have been good so a mix would be great) .

5.) 10 Mar 2017 18:08:05
There was a video also online of Rashid, shows some decent potential, if he comes along with him I will be excited to see his outcome in Rangers and in the Scottish game.

6.) 10 mar 2017 16:11:33
he will have done is homework already and has probably identified several areas he would like to strengthen. hopefully

7.) 10 Mar 2017 16:56:53
Some of my family members could do a job at the back for us and i'm talking about my sisters

8.) 10 Mar 2017 17:01:31
Try get wee Weiss while you're at it

9.) 10 Mar 2017 18:39:35
Looks decent. Quick, power full and not afraid to put his body on the line a few goals too so let's see what happens.

10.) 10 Mar 2017 18:44:25
Don't get the thing about Vlad wisdom didn't think he was up to much.

11.) 10 Mar 2017 19:41:58
If this young fella is a Ghanaian international he must be pretty decent. He seems pretty solid and it looks like he likes a good old fashioned tackle! Just what we've been lacking!

12.) 10 Mar 2017 19:38:58
Wee weiss would be worth 2 players. Weiss on the left allows Barrie Mckay to take on a number 10 role.

13.) 10 Mar 2017 21:11:58
@bawbag u musta been blind a few years back as vlad was a great wee player for us, and rangers to the core

14.) 10 Mar 2017 21:19:24
It would be good to see Weiss bak but a don't think it will happen and it's almost a cert that Pedro will bring his own players in but it will be interesting to see how he shapes up the team and hope he can get the best out of certain players like moh a think he's a great player and hodson and windass

15.) 10 Mar 2017 21:59:18
Sorry Smodge remind me, what has MOH done other than score two goals against a splinless Gers team and manager? He can't control his feet, he makes Ted McMinn look like a ballet dancer!

16.) 11 Mar 2017 15:48:37
I will settle for bringing anyone in who will realise a £20million transfer after one season. But then again the Press in this country are so biased against us they would concoct some sort if sad financial wrong doing story about it. Its not just Celtic we need to beat its an entire establishment. I mean does any Rangers supporter actually believe that Scottish football plc and associated media actually want a strong Rangers. They loved every second of our fall from grace and this season has been an added bonus for them. Evidenced by the total negative reporting of the new manager even before he arrives. Expect it to continue everyone.

17.) 11 Mar 2017 21:44:54
Lol Truebrit. Totally agree but the Tin Man was a laugh. O'halloran gives us nowt



15 Feb 2017 15:25:52
"Frank de Boer's agent claims boss snubbed Liverpool and Tottenham. but now wants Rangers"

From a rag so take it with a pinch of salt.


1.) 15 Feb 2017 16:03:57
In what universe would we be able to Finance any decent Manager. We've got more Court Cases and dud players then we've got money. Get real and start debating how we can pay our bills for this month.

2.) 15 Feb 2017 16:08:07
Sadly in the 21st century I doubt any manager would snub Liverpool and Spurs but want to take charge at Ibrox or anywhere else in Scotland.

Would be amazed if this happened but has anybody else thought about Robbie Neilson working with a DOF. Thought he did a great job at Hearts and would have no problem working together with a DOF.

3.) 15 Feb 2017 18:21:03
Robbie Neilson? A great job? Most hearts fans were delighted to see the back of him. I'm not convinced on that one.

4.) 15 Feb 2017 20:25:50
Pretty sure he means he turned them down to go to inter Milan. and is now out of work so I'll go anywhere

5.) 15 Feb 2017 23:12:19
Liverpool and Tottenham Looking for new mangers what you smoking get real

6.) 15 Feb 2017 23:35:31
If we appoint Neilson we might as well lock the gates up for good.

7.) 15 Feb 2017 23:14:27
You can believe this or not bears, but gary rowatt has a lot of support within the rangers boardroom!

8.) 15 Feb 2017 23:33:10
Naz get a grip of your life Robbie Neilson we're Glasgow Rangers and you want another mediocre manager get real

9.) 16 Feb 2017 06:17:47
Maybe our new manager will play his best players in thier correct positions. Not just his F. A. Vs. Just an idea .

10.) 16 Feb 2017 07:15:50
Some amount of arsey posters on here! I posted a headline from a rag and even said take it with a pinch of salt but posters replying like I said it was gospel!

I was only stirring up some conversation. Chill out!

11.) 16 Feb 2017 09:03:08
Is there really such a lack of coach drivers in Britain that both Liverpool and spurs would be looking for one at the same time?

{Ed001's Note - Frank de Boer was an option at one time, he was never offered the job to turn down, but he turned down the chance to speak to Liverpool saying he was not ready for such a big job. Liverpool spoke to two other managers, Roberto Martinez and Brendan Rodgers, instead and ended up offering the job to Rodgers. De Boer only turned down a chance to speak to Liverpool and it was a fair few years ago now. I would have to check regarding Spurs, as I am not sure off the top of my head, but I am 100% sure he was never offered the job there, I think they just wanted to talk to him but ended up going with Pochettino instead.}

12.) 16 Feb 2017 10:19:47
Pretty sure any "offers" he had would have been a few seasons ago.

If we are to believe the Express (which I tend not to, hence my pinch of salt remark) then his agent says he's interested in the job.

Nice wee pic in sightings showing the SPFL club by club highest attendances. Just goes to show it really is all about the Rangers.




05 Apr 2017 19:37:04
Who would be your no.1 realistic signing for next season? Mine would be Jamie Walker.


1.) 05 Apr 2017 20:42:36
Vladamir weiss

2.) 05 Apr 2017 20:31:57
He would be in my top 3/ 4 but i'd prioritize a midfield general and a no nonsense cb!

3.) 05 Apr 2017 20:39:46
Lwdawson, i agree with you in the sense that jamie walker would be a tremendous signing for us mate!

4.) 05 Apr 2017 21:49:40
Liam Lindsay Partick CB

5.) 05 Apr 2017 21:59:27
No Scottish based players or English lower league players I'd say wiess is probably the highest quality player we may have a chance of getting.

6.) 05 Apr 2017 23:52:00
Aberdeen have done a piece of good business in getting Tansey. Murray Davidson would be not bad. We need to aim higher, but realistically we also need some players who will just come in and be good from game 1 and that know what its all about.

7.) 06 Apr 2017 12:54:32
For me Weiss, Lindsay, Hyndman (loan) and Patterson

8.) 06 Apr 2017 15:17:48
Well that was awful. Pedros got a big summer ahead

9.) 06 Apr 2017 17:01:39
goalscorer rooney would bang in 30 for us a year the amount of chances we create

10.) 06 Apr 2017 17:04:49
Jamie Walker? Aye 100% take him but they'd want big money.

11.) 06 Apr 2017 20:41:15
There are literally thousands of players out there that we know little or nothing about, without the same old boring scratching around for mediocrity. I'm sure the manager will know far more about potential targets than just Aberdeen, Partick and the English lower leagues.



04 Apr 2017 18:47:47
Two young boys at the back tomorrow night. Hallelujah! At last getting some young blood. More of the same till next season please, Pedro.


1.) 04 Apr 2017 19:40:40
Let's hope we can find a player from the youth team. Great move by the manager giving those 2 boys a chance

2.) 05 Apr 2017 01:46:41
Released the team sheet already?

3.) 05 Apr 2017 01:47:53
Foderingham, 24
Tavernier, 23
Wilson, 23
Halliday, 23
Holt, 24
Hyndman, 20
Toral, 22
Windass, 23
Dodoo, 21
McKay, 22

Aye, let's get some young blood into the team! Have a lie down mate.

4.) 05 Apr 2017 08:28:42
weewcky think your a few years off on some of those ages.

5.) 05 Apr 2017 08:35:03
Ecky! think you need to update your Football Manager to 2017 version pal cause

Foderingham is 26
Tav is 25
Wilson is 25
Halliday is 25

6.) 05 Apr 2017 08:43:23
Wee ecky-- your post is wrong. How can they wear the same shirt numbers mate?

7.) 05 Apr 2017 11:49:56
wee-ecky, let's assume the ages you posted weren't a load of Brad Pitt, which they were. How many of them came through our ranks and how many are good enough to progress? Pull your head out your dinner dumper!

8.) 05 Apr 2017 14:05:41
Yeh provided we win! I don't care how young or old they are just win

9.) 05 Apr 2017 15:03:25
Think that's a real problem Bears! Other than Hill Miller our squad ain't big enough! When u think about the teams under Souness Smith McLiesh Advocaat we had players at least 6-7 in squad from 26 to 29-30 players at their peak in their position I:e if we had players hitting 30 they were either in our back line OR your talking about guys playing in midfeild who were top quality players! Think about the size of some of the players we had and not just height these guys were SOLID! We've missed that the past FEW seasons seriously need to fill that team wi guys who are built up. All for a mix and I know there is a case for players all sizes BUT our CH's and a presence in midfeild is a must!

10.) 05 Apr 2017 15:05:19
Wee-ecky thought for a long time our team lacked experience and lookin at your post it screams out we need older players in there. All for having some youth in squad but they must have the skill and ability to back it up!
On that note I hope to see wee Serg Atayaki gets some game time between now and end of season as its now lookin that we have a big enough cushion between us and 4th. I know that 2nd is still on but its up to the sheep to slip up even if we win all but it shouldn't stop Caixinha bringing on someone like Atayaki in a game for final 20 mins if we have at least a 3 goal lead I know its not something we've been doing but if we do find ourselves in such a position we MUST have they lads in be squid to utilize!



29 Mar 2017 14:46:32
"Malky Mackay has revealed he is advising Billy Gilmour's family on the youngster's future - and suggested it'll be better if he remains in Glasgow. "

Maybe, just maybe, we can hold onto the boy and hopefully see him fulfill his potential at Ibrox.

All the ex-pro seem to be saying he should stay and develop. Hopefully the boy is listening.


1.) 29 Mar 2017 20:44:12
Its a no brainer for me. If he stays he'll get to play against men very soon rather than being stuck in an academy playing with boys his own age for who knows how long.

2.) 30 Mar 2017 10:44:21
Scottish football is so rank not even bbc alba stv try an get live premiership games like killie ross county . partick st johnstone games with no meaning less you support them clubs for example but bbc alba spot on when they took championdhip games that are better hibs dundee utd falkirk morton etc evev s4c wales own bbc channel show there top league games ever weekend as well as early champions league games wales international games etc

3.) 30 Mar 2017 20:20:24
Surely we should try and match Chelseas deal! I think Gilmour and his family would want to stay at Ibrox buy if we are offering say 3k a week compared to poss 10k then imo an offer of 7k could sway his decision to stay THIS tho depends on coaches at Ibrox and Pedro as to their thoughts on if the boy WILL kick on?

HINDSIGHT! Will Billy become a top talent? I think that if he stays and in 3-4yrs is even valued at 1m then we will not have lost out financially. He must be informed that by staying he will move up to first team and get his chance this with a financial package that resembles Down South would be ideal for everyone.

If he goes down South the chance of him disappearing and continually playing Academy football could seriously affect his development. Fingers crossed Bears but unfortunately money will be a huge factor in his and his family's decision so if we can show that we really want him to stay a deal close to Chelseas I think would prove to him and his family he is really wanted and first team football a serious possibility.

He is still very young AND physically don't think he's the biggest but to lose him and all that goes with it is a risk BUT King MUST listen to Coaches and take the gamble yeah? What do u think Bears?

4.) 31 Mar 2017 11:35:55
Andy1872. 7k a week over 4 years is 1.456m. So if he's worth 1m we will have lost out by almost 500k. I hope he stays but I hope we don't pay over the odds for a possibilty he fulfills his potential. 10k is pocket change to the likes of Chelsea. 2-3k a week for would prob be more realistic. and that is still a fortune for an untested 16 year old.

5.) 31 Mar 2017 12:14:37
I think we should try our best to keep him as he'll almost certainly be worth a lot more than £500k in a couple of years. But trying to compete financially with the wages offer is not the way to go. He'd be picking up bigger wages than half our squad while he's still years away from being ready to play in the first team, that would be a dressing room nightmare!

6.) 31 mar 2017 16:00:01
we should offer quicker route into first team not offer more money for a lad.



17 Mar 2017 10:10:44
The more I think about it the more I like the idea of Miller as a player/ coach. He shows many of the attributes needed.

Gives it 110% every match, is passionate about the club, knows the club/ players, knows the Scottish game.

He would make a great conduit to pass ideas and opinions between the players and the management.


1.) 17 Mar 2017 11:32:22
We will just have to wait (again) to see if Pedro can succeed where others have failed us.

2.) 17 Mar 2017 12:01:02
The new managers requirements for the role were.

Someone who is familiar with the club, has a history with the club, and ideally you'd think would be considered a legend.

Someone who knows what to expect from the opposition. What to expect when going to opposition grounds etc.

Why not just move Jim Stewart in to that role.

He fits into all the requirements the manager laid out.

3.) 17 Mar 2017 12:39:21
Why is Jim Stewart considered that good?

4.) 17 Mar 2017 15:39:42
I fully respect Jim Stewart as a Rangers man, coach and most importantly a good man. But he is 63, surely that is pretty much past the shelf life of a gk coach?
The club is now going in a different direction so let's embrace it and see where Pedro can take us

5.) 17 Mar 2017 16:46:29
pedro has an assistant, fitness coach and goalkeeping coach that have been with him at the past few clubs he's been at, so Jim Stewart must of been expecting it if he was smart at all

6.) 17 Mar 2017 17:11:20
The amount of goals big Wes has lost at near post I think he was right to let Jim go

7.) 17 Mar 2017 17:13:39
Barry ferguson is the overwhelming favourite 2 be appointed the new no.3,scottish/ local coach, to work under our new manager, pedro caixinha! Barry has a lot of support within our directors! He's very well thought of, at ibrox, although the final decision lies with caixinha. We'll find out for defo, which candidate has been successful, sometime next week!

8.) 17 Mar 2017 17:19:12
You lot talking about Jim Stewart who was retiring in the summer.

9.) 19 Mar 2017 00:58:17
Yip Cee, seems to be the very same Stewart had stated he was retiring so y is it a surprise then that our new head coach wants to appoint someone now rather than wait!

Stewart has been a fine coach for us tho, and I wish him well and a peaceful retirement! enjoy

Are we supposed to believe the support booed off one of our goal scorers? I head some booing on TV when young Jamie Barjonas was being taken off, but I'm pretty sure that was because the young boy was having a good game and the fans wanted him on the park.

I won't call for his head till he's had a chance to sign his own players. However, a good manager looks at what he has and figures out how to get the most from the players available to him. Pedro can't seem to get the best out of the players and persists on trying to play systems which the players obviously aren't comfortable with.
