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.

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



17 Mar 2017 10:05:27
"Former Rangers boss Mark Warburton says he left Ibrox club in a 'very good position'"

'Very good position' is obviously code for 'with a squad of English lower league rejects with no sell-on value on big wages, who were signed to line my daughter's pocket. '.


1.) 17 Mar 2017 10:12:44
I feel very sorry for Nottingham forrest. they are a good side with good players, Warburtons tactics will see them relegated sadly.

2.) 17 Mar 2017 11:33:42
Good position? What are we supposed to do with kiernan, haliday and many other rejects? Cost us money to release them, even delboy wouldn't buy them and he's a sucker for fake goods.

3.) 17 Mar 2017 14:30:30
my god. he must be deluded. a european points record behind celtic never mind a scottish one. is he completely insane

4.) 17 Mar 2017 15:09:56
He always was ignorant, and he was always right . He believed all the yarns he spun to the press near the end, god help the forest fans

5.) 17 Mar 2017 17:02:20
Forest are absolutely terrible and have a handful of okay players lol!

6.) 19 Mar 2017 01:07:21
One good player remains at forest "Britt assombalonga" warbs will no doubt play him RW or DM! Any manger who pre plans substitutions before a game instead of making them on merit throws up discusion to say the least! I will never understand that philosophy! at the end of the day its 11 guys v 11 guys and on any day 11 guys can beat another 11 guys talent can be irrelevent! so surely if a game is requiring let's say a forrester type play then that's what u intoduce! not someone else just because pre game u had decided that was right!

The best managers in history had instincts to change a game with their changes! Ferguson, Capello, Del Bosque, Redknapp, Mournho even Smith and Burns had that!



12 Mar 2017 14:12:02
1. We can take these on the semi.

2. Hopefully Murty remains part of the first team setup.


1.) 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.

2.) 12 Mar 2017 15:39:05
Mckay coming off was a game changer. He was honking today.

3.) 12 Mar 2017 15:18:48
Murty clearly has the players respect.

4.) 12 Mar 2017 15:36:44
Think he was injured tbh.

5.) 12 Mar 2017 16:42:47
McKay's a sand dancer, a player who flatters to deceive. I watched the game in the company of two ex-Rangers players today and neither rates McKay, and those who read these posts know that I've never rated him. If anybody makes any kind of offer for him in the summer I'd bite their hand off. And before the 'he's just a kid' brigade open up, he's two years older than Hyndman.

6.) 12 Mar 2017 16:53:07
Aye he was minging today, didn't look interested. i don't think any of our players wer outstanding but most of them done what was required. job well done bears 🐻 🔴⚪️🔵

7.) 12 Mar 2017 17:46:33

Hopefully Murty is involved with the first team.

8.) 12 Mar 2017 21:29:33
Hyndman was garbage. on a more serious note mckay was mince but i still think his best position would be in the No10 type role.

9.) 12 Mar 2017 21:33:13
Spot on wee ecky I've been saying it myself can't tackle and no bottle



10 Mar 2017 18:52:03
We are expected to take a hiding on Sunday so why not just go out and try to enjoy the game. Even a defeat in the right manner will be acceptable so hopefully they put themselves about and soak in the occasion.

The atmosphere will be volatile and I hope our players enjoy it and rise to it rather than shy away. It's a chance to prove to the new manager they have the bottle for these games.


1.) 10 Mar 2017 21:56:26
Dawson a understand where u are coming from but u no aswel as me and the rest of us bears anything can happen on derby day yes on paper £&;@ic should beat us but every time u put a coupon on it also looks good on paper then it's so never say never

2.) 11 Mar 2017 02:45:38
Exactly. That's what mean, kind of. They should go out and play without fear and enjoy the occasion.

3.) 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.

4.) 11 Mar 2017 16:56:55
That's a very naive point of view, Lance. You really don't think there's any pressure on football players. Some handle it better than others. I for one wouldn't have the bottle to play in front of thousands of fans who pin their hopes on me.

5.) 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.

6.) 11 Mar 2017 20:25:28
We have Kiernan and you have Ambrose. Neither of them handle the pressure well at times. Both are pros. If you have a good manager these players can learn to cope better. Football players aren't superhuman.

7.) 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.

8.) 11 Mar 2017 21:06:39
I'm sorry have to disagree, form really does count, that is a complete fallacy, when Rangers did 9 in a row, and when Celtic was at its worst, how many games did Celtic win?

9.) 11 Mar 2017 21:12:11
Well said lance as that's exactly what i do for a living. i would give up 1 of my kids to play in this game tomorow 😂.

10.) 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.) 12 Mar 2017 11:38:32
Memaself, apart from the 9 season the old firm games wer a mixed bag. we only won 1 OF game in the 8 season and selik halted our 44 game unbeaten run at Ibrox in the 7 season. yes we won more than yous but ud b surprised that it wasnt that much more



09 Mar 2017 07:21:22
McCoist says we are no further forward than when he left.

No, Ally. Unbelievably, given our current predicament, we are! We're out the Championship for starters, ya fud! Away back to your garden.


1.) 09 Mar 2017 08:05:24
Gotta love Ally, really craving attention these days.

2.) 09 Mar 2017 10:28:13
£800,000+ to manage Rangers as a third division team smacks of greed, aligning him with the shysters that were on the board at the time. I'd have had more time for the man if he had just negotiated a wage reduction instead not a deferral.

I see that he's in the press today stating that it wasn't his fault that he didn't vote on Resolution 11 share issue last year. He was out of the country. It wouldn't surprise me if he took a bung from the fat man's camp, not to vote. Cash before club for Ally.

3.) 09 Mar 2017 10:46:34
Totally agree guys. McCoist was part of the problem. Great player but worst manager in our history. A money grabbing liar.

4.) 09 Mar 2017 14:07:06
I think Ally is right though when he says the D. O. F is a complete waste of money and the most successful clubs don't need a D. O. F and that the money should be used to get better players.

5.) 09 Mar 2017 20:16:29
Why would anyone listen to Ally on these matters, he proved beyond doubt he knows nothing about football management. Good player end of, same as Chris Sutton, Charlie Nicholas and all the other ex players who feel they are qualified to pass judgement on Rangers. Steve McManaman opened last nights coverage of the Barcelona by stating as fact they would not overcome the deficit, only an arrogant ex footballer would make such a categorical statement, so please do not quote one of these prix when discussing the nuances of football management they do not know anymore than your next door neighbour. If you need confirmation watch sky sports on a Saturday afternoon .

Not necessarily a bad thing if McCann spoke out against his appointment. At least then Pedro would know he's not just getting a yes man.

Does anyone else find it alarming how many times Wilson gets caught out by a bounce ball or misjudges the flight of the ball? My mate's a season ticket holder at Tynecastle and says it happened pretty regular with him at Hearts too.

IvlarkGraham, I actually enjoy the banter with the Celtic supporters most of the time. A few of them on here seem pretty decent too.

My "brainwashed" bit above was probably a bit strong. Many are but I shouldn't tar them all with the same brush. A bit of frustration there when it appeared my posts were being censored.

That being said I did make posts that didn't go up and a few took an age. Don't know what the issues was, could've been something on my side I suppose, but calling me I lair just wasn't true.

Anyways, I like this forum and will continue to post.
