Al Gharafa have confirmed Pedro is on his way to Rangers.




09 Feb 2017 09:13:39
If it is true regarding the rumour of major investment coming in February/ March, would it bother people if it was Redbull?


1.) 09 Feb 2017 09:39:41
It's not coming! while the fat man has his finger in the pie no one will touch us unless they buy the club outright

2.) 09 Feb 2017 09:40:15
Only of it would mean our disqualification from european competition. Otherwise i would be fine with it.

3.) 09 Feb 2017 10:47:52
If there was to be any significant investment, from any source, I would want to know all the ins and outs of it. If SDM had done his due diligence, perhaps we would not be where we are currently. It all comes down to what conditions are involved.

4.) 09 Feb 2017 11:11:54
WOULDNT, i meant to say

5.) 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?

6.) 09 Feb 2017 21:29:34
For me, David Murray and his shorts at Bank of Scotland are 100% to blame. They knew exactly what they were up to. As for Due Diligence, it is my understanding that Whyte also banked with Lloyds Banking Group so they wouldn't have needed to look to far to see that he was a man of straw!

7.) 09 Feb 2017 23:22:55
Maybe Ashley has asked for X amount OR there IS a buy out clause in contract that King etc cannot put up IF merchandise is worth between 4-6m annually then god knows what it would be BUT I wonder how much SD are generating from merchandise currently can't imagine its anywhere near even a 1/ 4 of potential amount? Thoughts Bears do u think fat man would go if an offer was put on table for him to walk?

8.) 09 Feb 2017 23:57:38
onlyshow where was it u heard this rumour as if it was here thenu know its probably a load of nonsense created by the many manky mob that visit our site

9.) 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.

10.) 10 Feb 2017 16:13:11
If we were to get investment would need to be the right people an I'd imagine they would want the fat mans contracts torn up would be great but no 1 will invest in Rangers with him hanging over us can't see it happening but would love serious money to bring us back abit quicker as I'm impatient

11.) 10 Feb 2017 12:28:38

Members of the then Rangers board had warned Murray not to sell to Whyte as they knew he was a charlatan however Murray chose not to listen and sold the club regardless. To me Murray is equally as culpable as the rest who followed and if there was any justice he would be sharing a cell with Whyte in Barlinnie

Anyone know what fee we got for Matt Gilks?


1.) 31 Jan 2017 12:22:32
Was curios of this myself, I heard they were willing to let him go for free, hopefully got a small fee, it won't be more than we signed Jak Alnwick for.

2.) 31 Jan 2017 13:01:12
Gilks went for free onlyshow.

3.) 31 Jan 2017 13:21:30
Went for an undisclosed fee

4.) 31 Jan 2017 13:26:40
Thought is was undisclosed. not sure if that means "Free" but would have thought he would have been on bigger wage than the new guy

5.) 31 Jan 2017 13:35:25
No he didn't go for free jaws

6.) 31 Jan 2017 13:21:30

300k for gilks

10.) 31 Jan 2017 16:31:19
Indisclosed fee as they say, expect would be around £100k

11.) 31 Jan 2017 16:44:37
'A fee believed to be in the region of £75k' I was told.

12.) 31 Jan 2017 16:22:29
Moved for undisclosed fee



16 Jan 2017 11:48:07
we are being linked with Juan carlos paredes. Watford rb/ rwb.


1.) 16 Jan 2017 12:47:18
Why? We already have Tav and Hudson

2.) 16 Jan 2017 13:18:45
bit of a stupid question mate. Better quality.

3.) 16 Jan 2017 13:45:54
tavs proved in the scottish cup final and last old firm game that if someone is prepared to run at him whole game his bottle crashes hodson i can't fault for effort but isn't the answer if were moving forward RB is definetely an area we nd to strengthen as is our whole defence tbh

4.) 16 Jan 2017 14:12:40
We need a holding midfield player / defensive midfield more than we need a right back unless young Rossiter is ready to return!

5.) 16 Jan 2017 15:21:30
We need a striker.

6.) 16 Jan 2017 15:49:23
I can't see this one being realistic. Price of £2m being quoted. I can't see us struggling for cash and then making a 29 year old Right Back (a non-essential) being our most expensive purchase when we are crying out for quality in other areas?

7.) 16 Jan 2017 16:08:32
Well Blue, it depends what formation we are going forward with. if it is a 3-5-2 then we need a decent rwb, Tav will cost us a lot of goals if he continues his current form.

8.) 16 Jan 2017 17:01:48
I can't wait to see the back of tavs so she hope this true

9.) 16 Jan 2017 17:15:48
I'm not supporting Tav OSA but surely when we are crying out for a centre back, a defensive mid and a striker of quality and we had £2m for one position (which we don't) we would fill these berths first!?

10.) 16 Jan 2017 18:20:17
@bluegenius - got to agree. If and it's a big if, there is no way we would be spending £2 million on one player.

11.) 16 Jan 2017 18:23:50
Tav is the weakest link. Always posted missing.

12.) 16 Jan 2017 18:38:08
first of all we need a striker as priority and i wouldn't even class tav as a right back no harm to the boy but he is definently the week link

13.) 17 Jan 2017 08:04:06
Tavernier might be a weak link but he is not alone. There are holes all over the park and at least we have Hodson, (who, defensively is a better player), to play in that position.

There are problems in attack despite the fact that we have at least four players that we deem to be strikers but if you take away Miller and acknowledge that Dodoo is a young player with a lot to learn the other two right now couldn't score in a Brothel!
We have some decent young players, like McKay with real potential in attacking midfield.

Where we are sadly lacking, indeed totally lacking, is in holding midfield / defensive midfield and if we are honest, that is a position that Warburton has failed miserably to fill.

Yes, you can say he was unlucky with Barton, but was he? He knew the guy carried baggage but, when you are lacking alternatives you don't just get rid of someone after a spat with an inferior player! Then you could say he was unlucky with young Rossiter and yes he was, but one look at the boy's injury history with Liverpool highlights that he was always going to be a risk.

Yes, if there is one player I want to see fit it is Rossiter because I believe that he would make the difference but right now we have no idea what the state of the boy's injury is because we are being told nothing by people at Rangers.

If there is one position I would be looking to fill right now it is that defensive / holding midfield role. If there is one position where I would be happy to find a seasoned professional that could walk into a role and simultaneously help steady the defence, improve the midfield and set up more chances for the forwards then that is it. Strangely, for reasons that are beyond me, Warburton appears to be happy with what he has!

14.) 17 Jan 2017 12:49:41
Personally I think Tav deserves more respect from a lot of so called fans! He's contributed a lot for us and had some blinders in a Rangers shirt. We are struggling as a team and they need our support. I don't get the absolute rush to improve, we will get second but there is nowhere to go beyond them, we will never compete in Europe. If you don't like it go an support Barcelona!

Bates has been signed on a 18month deal.


1.) 10 Jan 2017 15:43:21
Ah, the old master

2.) 10 Jan 2017 15:56:25
Nice one gram. Took me a wee second!

3.) 10 Jan 2017 15:56:35
David bates why?

4.) 10 Jan 2017 17:02:28
Because he's still very Young and warburton sees him everyday at Murray park, so he must see something in the boy

5.) 10 Jan 2017 17:08:53
Yes, but like the others, will he ever be given a chance to show what he can do in the first team?

6.) 10 Jan 2017 17:20:10
Looks to be a big unit and has a bit of presence about him. David Weir must also rate the boy, would like to see him get some game time in the second half of the season.

7.) 10 Jan 2017 18:17:48
He sees the rest of the defence everyday in training. I'd love to know what he sees in them

8.) 10 Jan 2017 18:26:17
Ive saw him twice albeit at a lesser level but he looked solid! Under the right coaching he could go on to be a decent big player, we can't go wrong with him be on minimal wage so we've nothing to lose

Was Kiernans sending off the correct decision? I reckon it was a harsh tackle but when you see it in slow motion I reckon it is only a yellow, then again I'm old school. What is everyone else's opinion?


1.) 02 Mar 2017 14:49:22
In my mind 100% not a red full blooded tackle studs weren't up poor decision however there was no need to go flying in like that in the 1st place

2.) 02 Mar 2017 15:24:06
Stupid tackle, 2-1 up with time left and Boulder nut flys in with a tackle from behind, either way he gives the ref a decision to make. Sooner he's away the better imo

3.) 02 Mar 2017 14:56:48
I agree. His foot was on the ground and not dangerously high. Stupid thing to do though, especially when out on the touchline. Gave the ref a decision to make when he didn't have to. I thought he and Hill both had a decent game to be fair.

4.) 02 Mar 2017 15:43:31
Whether people think it was a red or not, i'm so glad, i just hope we don't win our appeal, he could play against celtic :- (

5.) 02 Mar 2017 16:01:44
Never a red.

6.) 02 Mar 2017 22:45:23
I didn't think that it was a red card but he didn't need to make the tackle in the first place!



09 Feb 2017 16:18:06
Warburton is Second favourite for the Nottingham Forest job. I know how the bookies work, but if there is interest from Nottingham Forest then that to me says a lot about our manager.




25 Jan 2017 16:49:16
Marley Watkins handed in a transfer request today. That is a player we should be going for! 6 months left on his contract and wants to leave, he will be dirt cheap right now. Fast player, and has done well this season.


1.) 25 Jan 2017 17:15:32
If we can make a choice i think we'd all take Hourihane.

Wouldnt say no to Watkins, i'd suggest that would spell the end for someone though, probably MOH.

2.) 25 Jan 2017 17:19:23
Thats an Ebeneezer on one page now a Marley on this page, this is turning out to be quite a story.

3.) 25 Jan 2017 20:29:52
Nice one Bhampot gave a chuckle 😄😄

4.) 25 Jan 2017 21:17:13
If i go to the next page i'm fully expecting a loan deal for Bob Cratchit to be announced.

5.) 26 Jan 2017 17:09:15
Already got a few muppets in our team



23 Jan 2017 09:36:46
A few players here that we could get for free, that I believe would improve our squad in the correct positions.

Adam Thompson - 24 years old CB
Ben Turner - 28 years old CB
Ryan Leonard - 24 years old CDM
Yaser Kasim - 25 years old CM/ CDM
Marley Watkins - 26 years old ST/ CF

Each of these players should be affordable wage wise. Watkins should be the highest paid player and last time I checked Barnsley had a relatively small wage budget of £9mil, so I don't see the lad being on anything more than 10k per week. I'm not saying we should get all 5 but 3 of these players would no doubt improve our squad.

Kasim to replace halliday, no offense to him but he isn't a player to take us forward, he likes to think he is Barry Ferguson at times, far to many back passes and not brave enough to pass forward.

Adam Thompson or Turner would be a good replacement for Kiernan or Hill, Infact we could get both and let Hill retire?

Marley Watkins is doing well at Barnsley 6 goals and 8 assists, Barnsley are doing well so I don't see us getting Watkins but I still reckon he is a player we should be pushing for, the possibility of Europa League football could be the decider.

Ryan Leonard is a decent no nonsense type of holding mid, he's fast, strong and quite a tall lad.


1.) 23 Jan 2017 14:38:22
no offense mate but halliday is a good player and one i'd like to see stick around and get a chance at playing in his natural position .

saying he isn't the man for the job when he isn't getting a shout in his own position is Ludacris .

we have all seen how well he plays in the attacking side of the game but when he has to sit back he is not good enough ill agree but he should have a chance to get his own position back

2.) 23 Jan 2017 16:38:54
Completely disagree james, yeah sure he is out of position, but being out of position doesn't make you make ridiculous decisions. he is 25 years old, he shouldn't make some of the pathetic mistakes he makes, he loses the ball and his passing is bloody shocking. He was once a left back, surely he should be capable of a decent tackle, you say he should be put into a more attacking position, yet he can't pass the ball forward?! I'd rather have a decent player instead of the Halliday, I wonder when the whole "I'm a rangers man" and "I was born in the Copland" patter will die off. Halliday isn't a player we need going forward.

3.) 23 Jan 2017 19:45:23
Ridiculous mistakes? What about the mistakes miller made at 37? Absolutely dreadful distribution from a man treated like a God on here.

4.) 23 Jan 2017 20:32:51
I just don't get you cee and probably never will! What the hell are you all about? Honestly mate, some of your comments are like somebody from another universe!

5.) 24 Jan 2017 00:29:59
He's clearly one of these guys who can't get over the fact miller played wae celtic. Only thing I can think of what more do you want fae him cee he's carried us this season without him wed be about 7th or 8th in league



20 Jan 2017 09:34:48
Anyone else reckon we should Hijack Aberdeens loan deal for Stevie May? Take him on loan see how he does and then maybe purchase him if all goes well?


1.) 20 Jan 2017 11:06:01
Yip, I'd take that

2.) 20 Jan 2017 12:12:48
Defo knows how to score always fancied him to come to us before he went down south

Chelsea have been trying their best to get the boy to move. However I reckon Caixinha, if he is impressed by the boy will be able to keep him.

Sporting seemingly don't want to sell him. They rate him highly. We'd at best be able to get him on loan, which would be unlikely as Sporting don't want him to be on loan outside of Portugal.

Public sale is July/ August I think. Benefits:- don't have to worry about getting a ticket every home game. Actually get a ticket for the old firm games. I believe it works out cheaper to have a season ticket rather than buy tickets for every single home game individually.
