Heard from a wee birdie that Bedoya has been in talks about coming back. The guy that told is a bit of a donut but he seemed pretty certain that it's true.


1.) 03 Nov 2016 06:27:53
Was the birdie called orvil.

will he be like bobby ewing and come back out the shower?

Brilliant one liners guys! 🎣.



27 Oct 2016 07:54:32
Warburton and Weir wanted by Wigan. I don't want to see him leave.


1.) 27 Oct 2016 10:15:37
They can both leave for Wigan, out their depth in the premiership. May get some compensation for Warburton if he goes!

2.) 27 Oct 2016 13:13:07
naw just naw.

3.) 27 Oct 2016 17:11:27
the so called new manager will have to face the same 9/ 10 men defences that warburton has faced . and teams playing as if it was their cup final.

4.) 27 Oct 2016 18:50:51
Yes of course it is the same 9/ 10 defences but Warburton doesn't seem to have the "key" to open them and doesn't appear to be searching for it.

Sorry but he is a "rookie" manager and if he doesn't change then "he" will need to be changed.

Where is the freshness of the early promise of last season - he is beginning to look tried out - no new ideas - like McCoist .

5.) 27 Oct 2016 18:29:15
Nobody said they wouldn't but if we were more direct we would win more games he bases everything around possesion stats but that doesn't win u games look at Leicester last year averaged around 40% possesion more games but had s defensive structure and hard to break down we lose the ball were all over the shop.

6.) 27 Oct 2016 19:17:17
Did u honestly think we were going to challenge for league this year, reality check is needed, still a work in progress but i do wish he would try 4-4-2,badly need 2 up top.

7.) 27 Oct 2016 19:49:46
So Warburton goes, who do we get as manager, do we embarrass ourselves and stoop to an all-time low by going for Sheridan's pal, Davies or do we go for McInnes, who has done nothing at Aberdeen or some other second rate Manager, or do we turn the clock back and return for Macleish or Smith, the latter of who would most likely want serious investment.

Let's be blunt, Celtic brought in the exLiverpool manager because they feared Warburton and they have a significantly superior squad to us! So who, that is a quality manager, is going to leave a Club where they are doing well to come to Rangers when there is no investment and a lame duck Chairman!

Maybe we could put an SOS out to Souness and ask him if he can convince Kennedy to invest although I suspect that both would be happy to see Warburton remain and complete the job he started. The only big plus would be that with Souness as CEO and Kennedy Investment we would have a Rangers man that knows what winning is at the helm and a serious investor.

{Ed039's Note - investment is difficult right now because we can not put out a share issue and nobody wants to put money in while mike Ashley still had the retail deal tied up in knots, anybody putting money in now would be doing so with soft loans with the promise of shares in the future ...... that does not bode well with most serious businessmen)

8.) 27 Oct 2016 20:53:56
Like one of the previous posters mentioned every game against us is like a cup final. Other clubs hate us and don't want to see us back at the top. I've watched the other mob a few times this season and teams don't sit in the way they do against us. Granted it's up to us to find a way around it, and by us I mean the Hat. The only real thing about the hat that annoys me is his unwavering faith in Kiernan. The guy is a disaster. Thought we looked much more solid when he was injured.

9.) 28 Oct 2016 01:12:58
This is exactly what i mean ohalloran and garner to be droped for mckay llf n fat waggy against killie wtf. This really is takin the piss warbs is doing a le guen moh was fantastic other night so was garner who scored why drop them for two players who have been utter garbage honestly warburton its time u got your jotters pal.

10.) 28 Oct 2016 03:30:21
dont think its any longer a case of Rangers being a cup final to smaller teams, these teams now just know there is a good chance of getting points.

11.) 28 Oct 2016 08:57:59
I think maybe we need to draw teams out to attack us and then attack them quickly rather than making 40 passes before we have a dig.

Good possession football is great when you have a world class forwards but I think the old saying goals win games couldn't be more relevant to us.

There are games we have dominated and got nothing from but being a bit more direct rather than trying to be took arty farty would probably win us games.

Why don't we be direct the first half or until we get in front then switch to a possession based game.

12.) 28 Oct 2016 13:56:05
pure joke honestly the guy is trying to build something here at our great club.
he has to be given time to build it .
some people (stupid people) expect us to be top of the league the now. we are only two points behind Aberdeen and we have had a poor start to the season.
if anyone else thinks some1 else would be in a better position at this stage is we just ignorant to the fact we havnt played in the spl in 5 years.
give the man time to do his job and stop acting like spoilt brats.

I still feel we will improve and we will still finish a distant second . which is all we can ask for .
warbs has done a great job getting i9n the players he did with the money he had yes not all of them have worked out but the likes of rossiter windass tav forrester these guys are steals and we should appreciate what he does do instead of a poor start.

13.) 28 Oct 2016 17:03:54
Agreed james stirling. we need to recognise where we have been and now where we r going too. if we get top 3 this year that gets us into Europe . ideally 2nd. We must get behind the team and manager.2nd season was always gona b tough. Takes a lot to wear our famous blue jersey. some players r only finding this out. windass rossiter and crooks will b big players for us. once the team gels we will get drastically better. Keep the faith.

14.) 28 Oct 2016 18:56:30
Perhaps Warburton underestimated the quality of the SPL or he overestimated the quality of the players that he had at his disposal.

Put simply, the majority of players that we have are nothing special, most of them lack commitment, (few give 100% in every game) . They lack a winning material, they don't like getting 'stuck in' and they don't appear to know what it means to wear the Rangers jersey.

Due to a lack of investment and to date a failure to invest properly in the playing staff it is quite clear that Warburton has had to take a risk on signing players like Rossiter, an up and coming young player of quality but equally a player with a history of injury.

That lack of investment resulted in panic signings for a centre back when what was really needed was a quality centre half, ideally one that could also take on the job of team captain since right now we are leaderless on the Park. As a result we have increased our costs by signing two players, (Senderos and Hill), that have no sell on value and are hardly in the top tier of defenders in the UK today. It no doubt also caused Warburton to lose out on first choice players and end up with Barton.

We need to wait until January to see whether King comes up with the finance, and assuming that he does, (a dangerous assumption), then whether Warburton uses the money wisely to secure a quality centre back, a quality left sided attacking player and a striker. Of course if we need to supplement the King investment with further monies we could always try and sell Waghorn and McKay so we max out on their value before they are seen to be no more than Scottish Championship Level players.

15.) 29 Oct 2016 01:50:27
This season was always going to be a F#@KER! Never mind all the crap off-field that we've had to carry, this season we have the goal of a top 2-3 finish and a Cup run, I can get my head round that easily and I was one who thought that at the beginning something better was possible :/ Anyways I've said my piece before regarding formations BUT Warbs has his preferred system and he believes in it AND it can work if the players are switched on and nail it, confidence plays a huge part in this system. After everything tho my two biggest worries are Waghorn and Kiernan! Wags has been posted missing in Prem games and I don't see him producing anything when on the right, even when Warbs doesn't start him he turns to him on the bench before the likes of Forrester Dodoo O'halloran etc I do feel for these guys who see someone consistently getting game time and not havin an impact, NOTHING! . And now the re-emergence of Kiernan who I really worry about.
As for Jan, all I want to see FIRST is an attacking Wingers with a LEFT FOOT!

16.) 29 Oct 2016 07:06:29
Get rid of Warburton then sell Waghorn and McKay and play Michael Ohalloran and Joe Garner every week. Brilliant.

17.) 29 Oct 2016 16:23:07
Rick who would you bring in?

18.) 29 Oct 2016 21:16:03
the ed is 100% correct we do not know how lucky we are with king and co willing to invest in the club while its still running at a loss and everything loaned interest free no bank finance company or individual would lend to the club with its recent financial history but it all will change for the better.

19.) 29 Oct 2016 23:22:19
More like it today. MOH makes a significant difference. I just hope that we work on this as our starting eleven from now on. Much better performance than in midweek. A good performance all round even if Kiernan worries me overtime the opposition come forward.

20.) 30 Oct 2016 11:19:03
Says this from the start what a huge difference michael o'halloran is to our team by far the fastest player in scotland i hope he starts against celtic at ibrox, reminds me bit like ivan sproule it hibs who allways ran riot against us and allways scored.



19 Sep 2016 19:36:39
The other day I posted about what happens between Barton and Halliday. I was speaking to my source again tonight and he told me how it all kicked off.

There was a bounce game involving some U20 players, and JB kept the on calling one of them the wrong name in a derogatory fashion. (The u20 player shall remain anonymous)
The U20 player then nutmegged JB and challenged him to call him the name again, after this JB went through the back of the young boy injuring him.

This is when Halliday stepped in and had a go at Barton for the way he was acting and it all kicked off from there.

Again, on passing on what I was told from my mates brother. He was involved in the game.


1.) 19 Sep 2016 20:27:42
Could you imagine if souness or John Brown were there it wouldn't matter how hard Barton thought he was he wouldn't be hard enough.

2.) 19 Sep 2016 20:35:26
I could imagine this being an accurate account of events, given JB has previous for bullying younger players, and the fact his over inflated ego wouldn't take a nutmeg from a young fit lad. If it is the case, then good on AH for standing up to him.

3.) 19 Sep 2016 21:07:51
Absolute bollocks.

4.) 19 Sep 2016 21:11:24
I think that everyone is jumping on the "get JB out" bandwagon. We all knew of JB's history before he signed no one actually knows what's happened, I still think he has a lot to give! Yes he has had a slow start but so has most of the players but to ban him for 3 weeks I personally don't think is the answer.

5.) 19 Sep 2016 21:38:03
Thanks for the reply Hooly. I can assure this isn't "absolute bolloks" as you put it.
Just for the record I think JB will come good. He is undoubtedly a decent player and in time his quality will shine through.

6.) 19 Sep 2016 22:25:00
Gave Barton the benefit of the doubt when he joined but either way it's just proof he hasn't really changed! It's obvious there were no major dramas at Burnley because they had good form all year and was all easy with nobody questioning him! Was supposed to lead by example on and off the park but instead has embarrassed himself in trademark fashion. Waste of space and we're better without him!

7.) 19 Sep 2016 23:18:54
It was young josh jeffries.

8.) 20 Sep 2016 00:38:21
Yea that's right Negri, JB kept calling him Jock (the English way of speaking about Scottish people)

Then when young Josh pegged him, JB took the nip and clattered him.

9.) 20 Sep 2016 08:05:06
I find it very unfortunate, given the journey we've been on, that all news from the club is about Joey Barton, an overrated, under performing footballer who has been a resounding disappointment in every respect. He is not the foundation for development and growth of our club. We are better than that.

10.) 20 Sep 2016 08:25:48
Are you sure? So a young lad and Halliday the "Protector" takes massive hump about being called 'Jock" and this then leads to what is now being portrayed as the biggest fall out in Football history and potentially a huge financial risk if we have tp pay Barton off. Just don't get it; there must be something more sinister. Either way we are back talking about non football issues but this major distraction, which MW and the Club don't cover themselves in glory.

11.) 20 Sep 2016 10:35:08
Absolute pish.

Our manager couldn't take any criticism that's what it is, granted the way it was done wasn't fantastic i. e on the training ground and not in private. That's all.

12.) 20 Sep 2016 10:56:33
cant see him getting to play for us again to be honest .
he could have turned out good for us but played way too slow the games he has played but he is a goof footballer but is also a bit od a d*ck as we all knew before he signed.

13.) 20 Sep 2016 09:50:27
He called him Jock a few times and it was seen as a bit or a joke, but after a while a few senior player told JB to wrap it and call him by his real name.

I have no doubt things escalated from that, and one we argument led to another and things blew up.

14.) 20 Sep 2016 13:46:47
Apparently he is 'hated' in the dressing room (according to some guy on Five Live), don't think it has done much for the team spirit.

15.) 20 Sep 2016 14:23:44
Back when Souness was manager I played with Rangers for a short time. The exact same senerio happened to me and the Gaffer. We had a bounce game after training and I nutmegged the Gaffer. Next thing I know I am on the floor. He totally came after me and took me out off the ball. lol
The difference back then was that it was excepted and normal for him to pay back. I was later told if I ever embarrass the Gaffer again I would be docked.

16.) 20 Sep 2016 15:57:13
Josh Jeffries I heard is the u20 player.

17.) 20 Sep 2016 16:45:28
Kevin1984 you are right. Everything I've said regarding this post is accurate.

18.) 20 Sep 2016 16:52:13
It's normal practice for senior players to play harder at practice games against younger players, my son was harshly fouled from behind by Souness after he beat him and one of the young players complained to Mad Dog McGregor that his wages were short £5 and McGregor stated you embarrassed the gaffer by nutmegging him. So this has been going on with teams for years no big deal. But apparently this is a big deal I don't know why. My son has even worse stories that he experienced at Aberdeen and Coventry City.

19.) 20 Sep 2016 16:10:22
His publisher must be delighted.
Sport Direct don't own a publisher do they?

20.) 21 Sep 2016 09:59:47
Its funny Boydy talking about Bartons lack of application and professionalism. 2 seasons ago in his second spell at ibrox, he must have weighed about 16st, and could barely run 10 yards lol.

21.) 27 Sep 2016 13:46:33
If the above is true then well done to Halliday but what the hell was our Captain doing. Butcher, Gough, Amoruso and a host of other past captains wouldn't have allowed this to happen. Wallace unfairtunately is void of leadership qualities as can be seen every game we play!

Merry Christmas everyone, hope all is well and having a great evening.

30 Nov 2016 21:47:32
For a while I've been backing MW and trying to give him credit.

Unfortunately now the more I see of this Rangers team the less faith I have in him.

I'm not quite ready for saying he has to go but yet again he has no plan B and it's starting to wear thin. Everyone knows how we play and when Wes Fod punts it long we have NOTHING up top.
We are rapidly becoming the most predictable team in Scotland.


1.) 30 Nov 2016 21:53:41
Cannot believe that performance tonight. We started first fifteen minutes ok but after that. Terrible full game. Tav needs to take look at himself for they goals but overall we were slow and didn't show up AGAIN.

2.) 30 Nov 2016 22:34:08
Tavernier was our best defender. Wallace was given the run around and our two centre backs were not at the races. In midfield only Halliday deserves any merit and Holt yet again was totally out of his depth!



09 Nov 2016 10:42:54
So looks like I owe some folk an apology and time to eat some humble pie.

I was on here moths ago saying Barton will dominate, etc etc.
I can't say anymore than I'm delighted that tosser has left our club. What an embarrassment of a guy. Good on the Rangers board for not accepting his s**t and showing him the door. Would have been so easy for them to back down because he is a big earner.
Good riddance!


1.) 09 Nov 2016 11:43:10
Bit harsh calling him a tosser for what telling a few home truths. yes he shouldn't have questioned the managers defensive tactics with the reported foul mouth language in front of his team mates, i remember a story from a Brentford player last season also pointing this out that the management were defensively clueless didn't work on set plays ect so please for the love of god stop hiding behind its all bartons fault.

2.) 09 Nov 2016 11:52:19
harlee dean was trying to adjust the blame, Brentford have hardly improved since he left have they.

3.) 09 Nov 2016 12:15:54
He's certainly dominated the backpages.

4.) 09 Nov 2016 12:45:07
Good to see that Barton out the door and if understand correctly only being paid up to end of December 2016.

5.) 09 Nov 2016 13:49:08
The great mystery is why he was signed. Warburton's mantra from day 1 has been 'must add value on and off the pitch' and every report I've read by a former player or manager who knew Barton spoke of his dressing room outbursts, likening them to a sudden personality change. Management must have done its homework and known the history of the player.

6.) 09 Nov 2016 13:49:10
Where is everyone getting this "Barton only told a few home truths" bo****ks from?
How many of you actually know what was said?

7.) 09 Nov 2016 14:01:24
Agree I have no idea what was actually said. Would love to know but really just delighted to see back if this unhinged character.

8.) 09 Nov 2016 14:04:41
the media report it, it must be true bluegenius lol.

9.) 09 Nov 2016 14:25:23
I'm getting this few home truths statement from bartons mouth when he spoke with jim white on talksport as all Rangers say is "can't comment".

10.) 09 Nov 2016 15:12:16
Calling him a tosser is a polite way of talking about him! Will not speak another word about the cretin.

11.) 09 Nov 2016 16:46:28
Too many people on hear are hanging judges reaching a guilty verdict on the basis of zero information or reputation. That is simply not on. There is a version of the story emanating from within Murray Park that, yes, Barton was bang out of order and deserved disciplined, but two other players were equally vocal and the manager was not without fault either. All staff were told to stay stum on penalty of discipline if the media quoted a source from within. The aim was to get Barton off the books at zero cost, but that failed as he was not prepared to be made the scapegoat and had the support of the players union. Hence the reasons for the continuous suspensions. He also reputedly refused to accept a gagging clause in the deal unless he received the bulk of his contractual pay-off and the deal was reported as by mutual consent. All this because the Club did not have undisputed grounds for dismissal on gross misconduct, not least because they put the story in the public domain but tried to silence Barton, which is NOT acceptable HR practice.
Now, I know no more than anyone else about what the truth is, but I am not prepared to castigate Barton on the basis of zero information.
I do believe that the whole matter was badly handled, as such as Souness and McCann have stated and that there is certainly a view both at Brentford and amongst some players within the our dressing room that Warburton is not the greatest man manager, plays favourites and is inherently stubborn
Everyone has faults and I never did buy into the " magic" nonsense. Warburton is very much a journeyman manager and one performance from his team in the last six months surely proves that.

12.) 09 Nov 2016 20:14:07
Think the point most people are missing is that the arguement or whatever wasnt the only issue. If it was and he apoligised we may have moved on. But facts we do know are that he broke sfa rules on betting and then continued to bad mouth the club whilst suspended. When u combine it all within 2 months at the club it had to be the end.

13.) 09 Nov 2016 21:08:59
So did Ian black he actually bet against us so that arguement doesn't stand up.

14.) 10 Nov 2016 07:52:16
Well done Joseph mission accomplished.



05 Nov 2016 23:08:46
Hopefully Warbs sticks with MOH Garner and Miller as front 3.
Going forward we have looked much quicker and Garner looks like he's starting to come good. Hopefully Wilson makes it however Kiernan has looked better recently.


1.) 05 Nov 2016 23:30:28
MOH is a player! It's baffling how he has not started more games . Fair play he's taken a while to settle but he's the one player in your team (imo) that can actually hit the byline. He's definitely not a ST as some have been calling for but before you signed him I counted numerous occasions with ST J when he cut back and set up several goals! Very interested to see how he does for you guys now it looks like he has a bit of confidence.

2.) 06 Nov 2016 09:44:13
hill and kiernan are playing well, wouldn't drop them.

With all the San Allerdyce stuff going on, I'm hearing that Eric Black and JF Hasselbaink are about to be named in relation to football corruption.

11.) 29 Sep 2016 20:39:36
James Stirling, spot on, now all these squeaky clean we have always paid our taxes take note .
In the 70s / 80s I kept being told by Celtic fans that came back from Parkhead that they were baffled when the club stated say 30,000 were at the game when they would say there was over 50,000, was that not tax evasion!
Rest my case .

I actually don't think he would want much that much. He has been quoted as saying he would be open to a move to Scotland so unless he is a complete donut, he must have an idea of the budgets and what a Scottish club could offer him.

We still need a quality spine. Foderingham is looking much better but we need a commanding CB a midfield general and a finisher!
