Not what i would regard as a rumour but Murty wil not be manager next season,
My son is friendly with a first team player (scottish) and i will not reveal his name to save him grief, But the team and Murty know it is only until end of season.

He has a contract until then only.
He was not given a 1 yr or any other contract it was purely until end of season.

Murty is popular amongst the team and powers that be and is to be offered improved terms on his under 20s role to continue there.

Disagree if you like but watch this space.

I think everybody and their dog knew it was only a contract until the end of the season as that's what it was. No big secrets there pal.


2.) 09 Apr 2018 18:59:38
Murty has a great future in the game but probably in a coaching roll? King basically told us all today a new man will be in charge soon and let’s get behind Murty and win the cup! 🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧


3.) 10 Apr 2018 12:50:28
Kenny Miller to st Mirren or Kilmarnock


4.) 10 Apr 2018 15:27:01
Why are we not clamouring for Steve Clarke, its a no brainer surely?!

Here is a thought bears,

9 times out of 10 a manager brings a number 2 with him.

If we get a manager at end of season and he brings the number 2, what happens to jimmy nic?

Can't imagine jimmy will come just to get booted in June.
So, is murts being told he is going to be long term even though WE are told until end of season, or is the Irish gaffer lined up hence him not talking to scotland? Jimmy nic would already be in place and possibly involved in transfer business.

slim jim

1.) 31 Dec 2017 22:30:23
I reckon if it was oneil he would be in place already but the last thing you can do with this board is second guess them


2.) 01 Jan 2018 10:03:17
I reckon he’s taking a chance that murty can get the gig longer term. Is he still the Northern Ireland assistant? He would still have a job then


3.) 01 Jan 2017 12:11:29
Jimmy nicholl is right out of the blue.

Out of every person to choose from its jimmy nicholl. Definitely something weird about that one IMO.

Has Murty worked with him before?


4.) 01 Jan 2018 12:35:27
How is it weird, the guy played for us over two spells, been on our coaching staff before he has plenty of experience so all I can see is a good move


5.) 01 Jan 2018 12:48:12
Jimmy was doing the after dinner speaking when I was at the hospitality for the Aberdeen game last year.
So I'd say he clearly still had ties to the club and was a straight forward and easy process to get him in as a coach and that's why we appointed him.


6.) 01 Jan 2018 13:55:30
Ther would be comp for a club to sign the irland manager that's why gers won't just now


7.) 01 Jan 2018 14:38:20
He wouldn't still have a job if murty and him gets the boot in June as for the coaching staff of international teams like Northern Ireland Scotland exc are volunteers they do not get paid as they already have paid jobs with there clubs same as the players the only one to get paid are the managers as there higher don a full time basis. And jimmy n is only at Northern Ireland because of O'Neil the new manager there will bring his own staff with him.


8.) 01 Jan 2018 20:28:11
Jimmy nicholl was recommended by Walter Smith, hardly a strange appointment. Also Jimmy still is Northern Ireland assistant so still has a job. Also I imagine rangers are paying him much more in 6 months than he would get at Falkirk.


9.) 02 Jan 2018 11:49:23
Deanobear, utter nonsense. Assistants and coaches with international teams may be part time yes but not volunteers with no pay.

Bottom line is we have been asked 3 big game questions this season and failed miserably in them.

1) against mhanks, Played us off the park.
2) against Spartak in a game that would just about secure our progress to knockout stages of EL. A team in turmoil, many players missing and no manager. Failed again.

3) a cup semi against a poor sheep team with clueless manager. Another fail. 3 games we cannot even score?

Is it lack of bottle, lack of ability or are we just a headless unit with no ideas? .
We need leadership on the park for a start and our so called Captain does not have it. All he seems to do is want to waste EVERY free kick or corner we get,

Fredo was a big miss for us but it is a sad day when we need to rely on 1 player to score a goal for us.

Rant over.

1.) 29 Oct 2018 12:44:33
I was thinking outside McGregor and lafferty how many players in the rangers side have win a major honour?


2.) 29 Oct 2018 15:53:40
Slim Jim it’s lack of ability I’m afraid. Investment in the attacking 3rd is a must, we need a prolific striker even Morelos doesn’t convert enough of the chance that come his way. We also need a Lampard type player who can get us 15-20 goals from midfield. I hoped Dorrans could be this man however he is rarely fit it seems. Far more to be positive about this season however than negative. It all seems a bit boom and bust on here at the moment. The guys we have on loan are all young players and with young players comes inconsistency, this happens with all young players and hopefully as the manager expects we will see a reaction on Wednesday.


3.) 29 Oct 2018 16:11:38
Slim Jim. we have been asked 3 big questions and failed in all of them? What about Villarreal away, The Russian team away, the Croation team away, Aberdeen away with ten men? Where they just wee questions? Or do they just not suit your argument?


4.) 29 Oct 2018 17:33:43
Rome wasn’t built in a day! It shows how far we have come when we are disappointed with a home draw against Spartak!
Yes the unwashed and Sheep results weren’t good enough but it’s a work in progress. And fortunately listening to Gerrard he knows it as well.
He’s only had 1 transfer window so far to get us to where we are - still in with a shout of the league and still competitive in the EL.
Keep the faith 👍.


5.) 29 Oct 2018 17:41:47
Sorry but a clueless manager who managed to set up his team to snuff out our attack isn't very clueless. That was the difference between an experienced head and a rookie.


6.) 29 Oct 2018 18:01:53
Dutch you have mentioned 4 games in which we only won 1 of them and against a team no one had heard of. There is a big game mentality issue with Rangers. We have a captain who consistently fails on the big occasion. He was atrocious yesterday and is says it all when Stubbs comes out and says they deliberately targeted Tavernier as the weak link in the final. This guy is no Rangers captain.


7.) 29 Oct 2018 19:07:06
Dutch, you are missing the point. Sheep away was a regular league game. Villareal was against the group favourites where anything we got was always going to be a bonus and had we lost it would have been half expected. Away to the russian mob we had high hopes of a result etc.
If you are honest with yourself you would see that the 3 games i picked out WERE the 3 that mattered most and not just ones that suited me. If you don't see that then you are just clueless.


8.) 29 Oct 2018 22:09:27
Maribor was as big game as any we've played this season.

If that is it then it will be a long summer guys.

I must say, I am thoroughly disappointed with todays news. But with a few good free transfers, we will can be a winning squad. In Gerrard We Trust.


 

 

04 May 2018 12:46:40
See McCoist bumping his gums again. What a bitter twisted tit he is turning out to be.
If only he was half as good a manager as he was a striker for us, we wouldn't have been so far behind.
So many chances to bring the young guns through but stuck to his pals and stupid wages in the bottom tiers.

slim jim

Name the young guns he could of brought through and where are they now?

Doom and Gloom? You better believe it. If DM gets the job, any hope of stopping 10 will be gone. The guy is a failure on the big occasions and always has been.
Finishing 2nd in a 12 team league when on each of those occasions 2 of the top 6 teams were not there is not an achievement.

We are going to pay about £1 million compo for him and sidekick, give a 3+ yr contract (D King says) so possibly a combined wage of £1m per yr.
We will be stuck with him as unable to pay off when it goes tits up. again.

I am not keen on Murty as manager but Here is a thought, Getting Moult and A. N. Other in January with the Comp money and Murty to end of season, we would be a far better team come end of season and in better position to get a decent manager.

Been season ticket holder since Souness arrived, but this could be the last.
Really really unimpressed with my lifelong club.

slim jim

1.) 06 Dec 2017 13:20:47
totaly agree with you. complete lack of ambition by a useless board. If murty had been given the chance to bring 3 players in he could secure 2nd spot easily enough. but anyway the board just want to be 2nd and are happy at that.


2.) 06 Dec 2017 13:23:35
What a load of barry white, slimjim.


3.) 06 Dec 2017 14:12:55
@coldo, You tell me what part you think is BW?

Saying all of it will be a cop out as just about all i say is fact or pretty much assured.

So tell me.


4.) 06 Dec 2017 14:25:18
Coldo why is slim Jim talking a load of Barry White, it is his opinion and after all it is a banter page, I agree with what slim Jim is saying regarding DM, what has he proved and especially on the big occasion, backtrack his managerial career at Aberdeen and what to you see,4 seasons we were not there he got hee haw even when celtic had a dud as a manager, you and other believe DM will be our saviour, look around you man, why do you think celtic went south for a manager, I will tell you why because they saw nothing up here, and why not use the comp money for players, it makes complete sense, I'm not doom and gloom however we will see how many DM lovers come on here when it goes pear shaped, the board need a really big name, if you think that DM is that man well that's fine but he is not in the mould of Smith, Souness, advocat, and a few others. ok he snubbed Sunderland, but why,? Was he waiting on the Gers job or was he bottling it to go down the road, or did he genuinely want to stay at Aberdeen, his set ups against celtic have been questionable, why do you think he will be any different at us, DM is moulded into a certain type of manager and he is not for Rangers. And you can all take a pop but as I said it's a banter page and I'm only stating my opinion and agreeing with slim Jim.


5.) 06 Dec 2017 15:30:01
For me the board a going for McInnis because he knows the league and will get us closer to Celtic and who
No's with a bigger budget available to him we mite even be able to stop them winning league and cups we need stability and he can provide it
All the other names are unproven in the league with the exemption of McLeish but he spent a fortune last time


6.) 06 Dec 2017 19:54:11
The lot of it @slimjim. Even the part where you say that all you say is fact, when clearly its all shoite. Hope that helps👍, oh and just to put you right, two top six teams can't be classed as top six teams when those two teams were playing in the championship lol, what a daft thing to say.


7.) 07 Dec 2017 10:01:55
Sorry to rain on your big parade, but little of your post was fact.

Doom and Gloom? You better believe it. Opinion, not fact.

If DM gets the job, any hope of stopping 10 will be gone. Opinion, not fact.

The guy is a failure on the big occasions and always has been. Might give you that one as a fact.

Finishing 2nd in a 12 team league when on each of those occasions 2 of the top 6 teams were not there is not an achievement. Opinion, not fact.

We are going to pay about £1 million compo for him and sidekick, give a 3+ yr contract (D King says) so possibly a combined wage of £1m per yr. Speculation, not fact.

We will be stuck with him as unable to pay off when it goes tits up. again. Going tit up is opinion not fact. Being stuck with him is a fact.

I am not keen on Murty as manager but Here is a thought, Getting Moult and A. N. Other in January with the Comp money and Murty to end of season, we would be a far better team come end of season and in better position to get a decent manager. Speculation, not fact

Been season ticket holder since Souness arrived, but this could be the last. Speculation, not fact as you say 'could' rather than 'will'.

Really really unimpressed with my lifelong club. Fact.

Pappy, it is totally irrelevant. Rangers pay his wages and give him the best of care. So what he does for anyone else and that includes Scotland is most certainly irrelevent.

Being a star for the famous is all that matters.

Sorry guys but dutycalls is correct.

Only interested in fact that Rangers may have a star on our hands. Whether he eventually stars for Scotland is irrelevant.

If you stand with both hands in the air at a corner and the ball hits one of them, that is ball to hand as well but it going to be 100% a pen.

The pen we got was because he had hands in an unatural position and prevented a shot being on target.

No. It only means that Spartak cannot finish 2nd.

Even after tonight, Rapid can still get 9 pts.

That said if we win then we would nearly be there.
