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! 🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧

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?!



31 Dec 2017 21:49:29
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.

Liverpool are not pricing Kent out of our reach, they are merely saying what THEY want for him. If the 12 mil figure is true.

If Kent went elsewhere then it would be he who chose the big bucks which he is entitled to.

He can always say to Liverpool he is not going to xy or z. They cannot make him. They would then have to let him come to us on another loan or dump him in their reserves. Players have ALL the power nowadays so the ball is in his court.

Myself, i wouldn't pay more than about £5 mil as he is still got a lot to prove. Good to watch but not enough goals etc.

slim jim

1.) 16 May 2019 17:08:59
Completely agree slim. The one thing that makes me think we aren’t going to sign him permanently isn’t the price tag, it’s the fact we have Murphy, Jones, Hastie and Middleton all in that same position. Unless the plan is to use some of them on the other side if we only have Candeias.

2.) 16 May 2019 17:45:00
5 million is reasonable.

3.) 16 May 2019 19:11:51
Blue 89

Hastie plays on the right as he likes to come in also I wouldn’t have Middleton even mentioned in that he may get a few games here or there but that’s it.

4.) 16 May 2019 20:05:44
Mind Middleton is only 18, if you look at the stats for this season, they are better than kents. I like Kent, hope we keep him but he's not irreplaceable.

5.) 16 May 2019 20:43:13
Agree with you blueberry, Middleton has delivered every time he’s played, even in Europe. Scored just as many goals as Kent and generally gets in more crosses than Kent. He is a little one dimensional but like you said he’s only 18. Gannet, I’d rather play Middleton any day of the week before Jones.



04 Jan 2019 13:44:56
Defoe, Here is the thing. Is SG going to play him ALONGSIDE Fredo or in place of? . He will not give the same workrate as Fredo if played as lone striker. Could be dynamite if 1 is played just off the other?

Alternatively, could we be looking to accept an offer for Fredo?

Interesting couple of weeks ahead.

slim jim

1.) 04 Jan 2019 14:24:00
Would love to see Defoe play along side Morelos but my concern also, are they going to cash in on Morelos.

2.) 04 Jan 2019 14:47:56
In previous years, jelavic for example, never played before the window opened as he was getting sold. I think the fact he played in the old firm, and his reaction at the end suggests he is staying.

3.) 04 Jan 2019 15:55:49
Money offered for alfie will determine if he goes or not
That is the bottom line.



29 Dec 2018 20:25:49
Andy Halliday.

I will never be convinced he should be playing for us as a Left Back and when Borna Barasic is fit then Andy would only make the bench as we have far better midfielders.

That said, he was outstanding today and deserves any praise he gets. He wears the famous blue with pride and never hides.

Take a bow AH.

slim jim

1.) 30 Dec 2018 03:14:28
Haha ah few wee tic, disagreeing with you slim Jim.



15 Dec 2018 16:16:23
Just seen Squad for the Hamilton game.
Obviously fredo is suspended but only striker listed is Lafferty.
Surely young Dallas merits at least a place on the bench in a home game?

Red card or injury to lafferty means no striker. No matter his age, Dallas knows where the goal is which is more than can be said for using a midfielder.

slim jim

1.) 15 Dec 2018 17:20:23
Thinking the same slim Jim Flanagan, Halliday mccrorie and four centre halfs for Hamilton, c'mon Stevie G.

2.) 15 Dec 2018 21:14:30
Im sorry but the manager is making far to many mistakes for my liking
how many of our loan players are performing for him? Ejaria leaving is an embarrassment to gerrard unless he comes out and says he told him to go. Sign players that we can afford like Shankland before we loan players like solanke and stand on our own two feet. The loanees are not giving us 100%.

3.) 16 Dec 2018 11:10:11
My thoughts too Jboy. Not saying that young Dallas is the answer but surely someone that KNOWS where the goal is should at least be on the bench just in case, rather than all those defenders in a home game against Hamilton.



10 Dec 2018 10:38:09
We were absolutely mince on Sunday and not for the first time.
We are an average team at best and had it not been for Shagger this season, we would be out of Europe and further behind the Dhims.

So long as we fill our team with loans and guys that cannot get into their own team we will continue to suffer. Just have a look at some of them.
Worrall, flanagan, Coulibaly, not good enough for their own team.
McAuley nobody wanted? Bambi whatshisname that cannot even get in our reserves. Not to mention the luxury type like Ejaria that only performs when it suits.
We need to develop our own rather than others and Sunday was an example. We had no back up striker on the bench when we have 2 youngsters scoring for fun but cannot get on the bench for a load of loan midfielders?

slim jim

1.) 10 Dec 2018 10:48:28
Slim Jim, you are wrong about McCauley, Huddersfield and another bottom half EPL offered him a years contract. I thought he was doing ok at Rangers going by the posts, obviously you don’t rate him? Which is your entitlement.

2.) 10 Dec 2018 11:03:08
Think its time to give at least one of the youngsters a chance.

3.) 10 Dec 2018 11:46:58
A blind man can see squad is top heavy with average players. how many midfielders do we have I've lost count. We are screaming out for a player in steve davis mould get rid of the dross, free up wage bill, steve davis, lewis mcloed would be a vast improvement in a blue jersey. get rid of rossitter, coulibaly, ejeria, pena, lafferty, worrel, they offer nothing. if anybody bids 5 million or more for tav sell. we need a good jan transfer window to push on.

4.) 10 Dec 2018 12:07:48
Ulsterman, not so much i don't rate McAulay as he has been a good player, but he is now really a back up and when he plays it means we are chopping and changing each time.

5.) 10 Dec 2018 14:39:16
What’s the answer Slim Jim? Your points are valid but I think Stevie G. is trying to get decent players in on a shoestring, he needs half decent money for the players he’d like too bring in, sadly at this time it’s not there. In the long term I believe it’ll work out, “ has to “ too keep us all sane, I know an awful lot of Rangers guys over here who are pleased with what he’s done with little money. But you and guys like you in Scotland who see them more than us rural’s have a better idea of what’s required, so I for one am always interested in your after game views.

6.) 10 Dec 2018 15:46:27
Ulsterman, like many other bears, i wish i had the answer lol.

That said, i feel SG should have had a far more experienced 2nd than Gary Mac who does not seem to bring anything to the table.

We need to stop the constant changing/ rotation of players. Stevie has played in teams where this happens so natural for him to copy. Problem is that WE do not have enough quality players to get away with it as Liverpool had. Another point is that he "seems" to be a little blinkered with certain players he has brought in on loan.

As far as i am concerned, when you pay a 7 figure sum for players, then they should be starting before a loan player that we are schooling for other teams.

7.) 11 Dec 2018 00:12:26
Aye but as soon as the youngsters didn’t start scoring goals you would be on slating them as well.
We are a work in progress. It’s time people realised there isn’t a quick fix to the issues from the last couple of seasons.

Sure hope not. No better than Hardie and he is not good enough for first team.

If anyone is not good enough for the first team then they should not be at ibrox.

Obviously not applying to our young developers and youths.

There is no doubt he is a player. This is the longest run he has had in 2 years though so let's hope injuries are behind him.

They are moaning about not being allowed to move to BF3.
They don't care that ST holders of many years might not want to move out of BF3.

They do however generate a great atmosphere even though a number of them are trouble makers.
