Kinda raging we didn't do more to get Moult if the reports are true the fee from PNE was only £450,000 as think an on form Moult and Morelos with Windass central just in behind them would have scored a barrow load.

Apparently he was wanting to move back south to be closer to his young family, it's a shame cause he would of been a great addition to the team.

2.) 15 Dec 2017 14:00:47
I heard from a guy that we tried to sign him in the summer but were 75k off Motherwell valuation.

3.) 15 Dec 2017 14:09:13
massive wage hike may of swayed him.

4.) 16 Dec 2017 13:07:49
It's family reasons confirmed by the man himself on social media

Anyone have any idea what really is going on with the Dorrans saga as i read last week that Pedro had rang him and gave him his personal assurance he would be signed?


1.) 24 Jun 2017 09:52:20
It was a personal assurance that he would do everything he can to sign Dorrans. Not that he WOULD sign him.

2.) 24 Jun 2017 10:04:46
Sick of hearing about dorrans. no worth the money Norwich want let's move on.

3.) 24 Jun 2017 10:23:16
I think he would b a great signing but can't see it happening now

4.) 24 Jun 2017 12:41:53
know a guy whos job brings him in to contact with agents at the club. hope was being lost with dorrans as of middle of this week so don't see it happening. on a plus side, morelos looks a beast in training!

5.) 24 Jun 2017 13:02:07
We seem kind of split on if Dorrans would be a good signing.
Some would rather Kenny McLean
Personally I would push a bit harder to get Dorrans and wait another season to get McLean for nothing (I would do the same with Walker)
I think we are going to be left with a fair amount of existing player on contracts that we can't sell so for the next season they will give our squad depth
I think we bring in quality in Dorrans and when some of the dross contracts run out we bring in Walker and McLean for nothing and raise the quality of the squad again.
I think Scottish clubs are going to be sh*te to deal with so let's just take the players that are good enough and want to come when their contracts run down (something that clown Scott Allen should have done)

On another note I said a few months ago that that the next six months would be big for Dave King (as in he had to put words into action) - Well Dave you didn't let us down well done
Feeling excited about the new season

Strange how a week changes things last week all we heard was that we were heading for admin 2 and that we didn't have any money to buy players now it seems most are saying that we've done the right thing loaning players for 6 months try before you buy so if it doesn't work out then we just pap them back to their parent clubs and we're not stuck with all these players we don't want or need but then if it does work out the deals are setup to be pushed through at pre agreed prices I always thought this was a better way to do business due to the amount of unwanted players we've had to pay off or try and get rid of cheaply over the last few years and then there's still the uncertainty of weather Murty will actually be given the gig on a longer contract but for me I hope he does well and get a 2 or 3 year contract but it it doesn't work out then at least a new manager isn't left with a big bunch of players he doesn't want when he wants to build his own team.


1.) 21 Jan 2018 12:07:48
What happens if they play really well and say wolves or villa get promoted and offer them treble wages as to what rangers can offer. They are only on loan because the money is not there. Loans are not the way forward for any club with ambitions

2.) 21 Jan 2018 12:57:58
Unfoftunately with our financial situation we don't really have much choice but to operate in the loan market or lower league market

3.) 21 Jan 2018 13:35:37
All loans have different stipulations Not A Rumour like first refusals, obligatory set fees, buy backs etc. It is imperative that a club in our position uses the loan market wisely and to its advantage. To dismiss using them as lack of ambition would be naive to say the least.

4.) 21 Jan 2018 14:50:18
Big Marc your kidding yourself on if you think Murphy deal on loan was planned. Now everyone saying loan deals is the best way forward. Should the young lad from Hamilton not be tried on loan first to see if he can handle playing for rangers.

Loan deals big Marc like Goss are good loans as we know we are not getting him as q p r are keeping him. But Cummins and Murphy are because wee have no money not because wee want to see if they can handle playing for rangers.

5.) 21 Jan 2018 15:06:40
Didn't say anything about try before you buy mate. Having the benefit of their skills in the meantime (Murphy, Cummings) then paying for them when we have the season ticket money is sustainable. We have first refusal and agreed prices for both so no danger of losing them if they're successful. As for Goss that's one player and if he makes the difference between coming 2nd rather than 3rd then he is totally worthwhile. Celtic are in a far stronger position financially yet they still use the loan market wisely because whether you like it or not Scotland is a football backwater.

6.) 21 Jan 2018 15:30:28
Well you have seen the posts on here and too many people seem to think this is a new thing the board have come up with instead of facing reality that there is no money left.

Celtic have got players on loan who they can't afford to buy and pay there wages so don't let Celtic fans or board kid you on either.

7.) 21 Jan 2018 16:05:20
Our financial position should be fairly clear given the accounts etc. Only the board know exactly how little they have to work with, but no money can't be accurate otherwise they would not have approached McInnes, or started negotiations over Murphy or Docherty. January is notorious for overinflated prices for all clubs and given we sell season books in the summer this will obviously be our leanest period. The recently passed resolutions mean there will be an opportunity for fresh investment through a share issue. Our retail profits should increase every year from now on.
Getting back to loans Walter certainly understood the benefits of them, and as McCulloch stated recently the January deals bear all of his hallmarks. Celtic can definitely afford Roberts, whether he's interested in a permanent transfer is a different story. Due to the money down south there are many quality players that are surplus. Bringing in several players on loan that we have no chance of signing permanently wouldn't make sense but each deal should be judged on its own merits.

So tell me this, have we won the Florida cup tourney? As in the website it says the team with most points after 2 games and we're sitting top with 6 points but by the looks of it there's teams that haven't even played yet? Or maybe the results just haven't been up loaded yet or I could've something to do with the time difference and the matches are being played now.

I know the tournament has no great significance but it's always good to see your club win a trophy. And hopefully it will install more confidence in the players to kick on in the second half of the season and get that gap closed.


1.) 14 Jan 2018 01:03:31
Iv been trying to find this out also but I think it's out of us and barcalona the Columbian side both have six points but not sure what happens now.

2.) 14 Jan 2018 01:08:30
From what I can see wee will finish top if the Ecuadorean Barcelona don’t win on Monday and even if they do we could still take it on goal difference.

3.) 14 Jan 2018 06:46:28
Im sure i read we are 6 points and +3 goals so unless somebody wins by more we win it, it is a bit confusing to be fair with not a lot of info on it

4.) 15 Jan 2018 12:11:11
Its a bit of a daft set up but every team is given their chosen games and whoever has most points out of the 2 games wins the cup. 3 points for win, 1 point for a draw but goes to pens and whoever wins the pens can pick up another 1 point. If Barcelona SC beat Fluminense on Monday by 3 goals they could beat us by goal difference. If they only score 2 goals and match our goal difference and they are joint 1st then it comes down to whos scored most goals overall and whos conceeded most. Lol basically we need fluminese to beat or draw to barcelona sc then we win it. 😁



05 Jan 2018 17:01:13
I'm guessing the club or at least Murty isn't interested in walker anymore as don't think I've heard anything like rumours ect about him coming to us this transfer window or did the chance to join us evaporate in the summer just past just asking incsse anyone else might have heard any further info on whiter were are still interested in signing him.?


1.) 05 Jan 2018 17:09:50
According to the Scotsman Walker is in Wigan finalising a move to Athletic today. Hopefully Murphy (when he actually signs) will prove a much better buy in the long term.

2.) 05 Jan 2018 17:11:45
Tommy it's because he was a 1 season wonder he's cap

3.) 05 Jan 2018 17:33:34
Rumours going round we offered 300k today - hearts unwilling to let him talk to rangers, however I thought he could speak to any club with 6 months left

4.) 05 Jan 2018 17:45:18
Gers09 he can speak to any club about signing a precontract for a move in the summer. But if we want him now we'd need to agree a fee with hearts first. Let him go to Wigan is my opinion.

5.) 05 Jan 2018 22:45:44
Think it’s a bit harsh to call him crap but I would be concerned about his injuries. We have been burnt so many times signing injury prone players so it’s understandable that interest has cooled

6.) 06 Jan 2018 13:44:05
Murphy in Walker deal not happening, Walker too injury prone,
Give me Murphy anytime, will be a great addition very fast and direct and knows all about SPL, Pedro's downfall!



05 Jan 2018 15:14:44
I hope were not covering any of Penas wages if the stories are true that Cruz Azul aren't even willing to pay anything upfront and if it doesn't work out we will still be stuck with a complete us less lump!


1.) 05 Jan 2018 16:57:19
There dof says we r paying 50% of wages

2.) 05 Jan 2018 17:17:58
Hers a taught Pen tells Pedro will u take me for half the wages I'm on now Pedro tells him OK but don't tell rangers and we'll ask them to pay half the wages your on just now and that be rangers paying you all your wages but make sure you don't tell rangers OMG am parra noo

3.) 05 Jan 2018 19:50:10
The record rangers podcast stated that Pena and Herrera combined were in about 40k a week. I didn’t think we had payed that sort of cash for many a year. But then again look how much Kevin kyle was milking us for.

If they are on anything like this then we need to get shot of them both pro, regardless of the method.



30 Dec 2017 17:41:26
Alaves is as soft as ..... all this talk in the summer about how good and experienced a defender he is what a load of balls 1st old firm game he was AWOL with a supposed injury 2nd he could wait for find an excuse to get aff that pitch that along with him being sub standard or posted missing in the big games we should get rid off the wage bill in January and the same goes for Kranjcar total empty shirt the guy is to slow and well past it there's a reason he was playing 2nd division football in America.


1.) 30 Dec 2017 18:19:13
Agree about krankjcar, his legs have gone. Don't believe for a minute alves feigns injury / hasn't got the bottle for it.

I don't think Murty wants to be involved with the first team as i think he sees himself a nurturer of young talent and mabey with his increased rep at the club now he can push the issue to get any young guys that look like they have what it takes to be included in the 1st yeam squad.

It's just sour grapes from Boyd due to him being dumped after 1 season as he didn't cut it at the club 2nd time around. But have to admit that when it's one of our own criticizing the it cuts a little deeper because there's plenty others from outside the Rangers family criticizing the club all the time and just waiting for the opportunity to put the boot in even some making up stupid rumours about admin just to put the boot in. I'm not saying he shouldn't criticize but just saying at times he seems to have a massive chip on his shoulder with the club poss in relation to how his 2nd spell went but he's long enough in the tooth that he should know how the negotiation process for signing players goes but suppose in a way he's trying to stick up for his current employers bit I still believe deep down somewhere in side him he's still a bear.

I hate to be negative but have to say it is a good feeling our team have had a good win and good performance with the team also peppered with good individual performances and improvements but we do this every time we get a decent result we think we've mabey turned the corner after one good game and then the team go and ket us down with a bad performance in the next game let's string 4 or 5 good results like Friday night letting the team gel a little more and then maybe we can be more optimistic for the rest of the season and hopefully we can give that other lot a few shocks that they might not be expecting or prepared for but good progress being made slow and steady and hopefully the players can take a wee boost from their good performance on Friday and a good performance next Sunday and then it's hopefully all systems go to move closer to the top of the table.

How can anyone disagree with fact unless the naysayers are calling me a liar! But if the disagrees are in ref to my expected score predictions! Then ok!
