i may be wrong but isn't there a bit of comparison with what Warbs and Weir did at Brentford ? They walked when the going got tough, and i think that is going to happen here between now and the end of the season.
You can see it in Warbs body language, he is NOT happy

They never walked away from Brentford. Their board wanted to start signing players based on statistics like you would in a game of champ man, he opposed the proposition and left. Also the going wasn't tough, he was one play off away from the Premier League. You been reading the celtic View?

No chance, both are fully up for the challenge and recognise the privilege and responsibility that the job involves.

11.) 31 Jan 2017 22:04:12
Wee bill your talking absolute crap there mate! Get your facts right before spouting absolute tosh like that! Warbs and weir amicably parted company with the brentford owner, because the owner wanted to use the statistical theroy to sign players, in which warbs and weir had no say! Warbs and weir rightly wanted to be in charge of who they signed! Brentford were adamant they were going down this european idea route so they ALL agreed at the end of the season to part ways! End of story my friend!

12.) 31 Jan 2017 22:14:28
No way wee bill, get out of here. They are both fully committed and fully understand the responsibility and responsibility of the challenge ahead.

13.) 31 Jan 2017 22:32:35
Keepbelieving, maybe it's no coincidence that McParland uses the exact same stats system when he's scouting.

Cant believe what i was reading there. it was quite the opposite in fact, they decided they were leaving when Brentford were flying for the reason the guys in the above posts mentioned

and mcparland uses the same methods when scouting does he funny that how on an and utter garbage that sum1 else comes out with even more garbage wee ecky!

c'mon tell us exactly how your best mates with him and know his methods better than anyone else lmfao total gash mat

does anyone know which players have been recalled from their loan periods? I heard McDowell was thinking about doing this, but haven't seen anything since.

wee bill

1.) 17 Jan 2015 18:52:28
why have 5 people clicked on unbelievable to this? it is merely a question or do they not understand the post? would be interested in Ed's opinion on this, it makes me wonder why I bother and reading some of the "expert" fan postings no wonder our club is going nowhere, the fans havn't a clue what they want

{Ed001's Note - I have no idea why people do that, could just be people making a mistake on a touchscreen. We are intending to change it in the future, so that you can change your mind if it was a mistake, and remove your vote or change it to the other option.}

2.) Thanks Ed - nice to see sanity prevail!!

3.) I believe Craig Halkett, Calum Gallagher, Tom Walsh and Robbie Crawford all came back with Barry McKay, Luca Gasparotto & Danny Stoney all still out on loan. I could be wrong though as we obviously will never see them until they leave for free!



18 Aug 2014 18:46:41
apparently Stoke are wanting to offload Jamie Ness. Worth a punt since we need midfielders?

wee bill

{Ed039's Note - He is on loan at Crewe until January 5th)

1.) Pity about that I think Ed

2.) We have no money!!

3.) To be honest, no thanks. another one who seen his chance to jump ship!!

4.) Hes not welcome back at ibrox. after all the support rangers gave him through his injuries he jumps ship at the 1st oportunity

5.) Agree with the above posts that boy was taken all over Europe by Rangers to get to the bottom of his injury problems. Had it not been for the club he might have had to chuck the game and he rewarded us by jumping ship. Like the others he should never be welcomed back

6.) Stewie total agreement fae me mate you beat me to the post I though exactly the same as soon as I saw his name lots of our support seem to have short memories eh

7.) 19 Aug 2014 22:32:23
once a traitor always a traitor

8.) He couldn't get out quickly enough and has hardly had a kick at Stoke, there's a moral there, thanks but no thanks.

9.) 22 Aug 2014 15:16:37
no way. decent prospect but legged it so quickly it was almost before the first opportunity. not welcome back.



26 Jul 2014 13:52:11
just a thought - murray davidson is only signed up at st johnstone until august? would he fit the bill if ally can still sign a midfielder?

wee bill

1.) 26 Jul 2014 16:16:19
is he any good?

2.) 26 Jul 2014 20:20:06
murray davidson is not good enough for rangers he is to similar to nicky law and other midfielder's we have. I would love to see burkey back at ibrox a wide player with flare and pace instead of ally sticking a defender in a wide position it is going to be a long hard season I fear. ed while I am on have you heard anything about the investigation into duff and phelps handling of the administration its been a while since we heard anything. and if it is found they acted illegaly would it make any difference to the current rangers board.

3.) Why do u say that every player we sign will double in wages when we get back to the premiership when it is simply untrue?

4.) I never said all players I said Murray Davidson that comes to 1 player

its a real shame Jim McColl won't come out the shadows and bring his billions to the table,
Now that would solve some problems, AND buying off Ashley would turn out to be loose change to McColl, ah to dream .

2.) 07 Feb 2017 03:56:57
Bears there's a wee Turkish guy plays for Walsall, first name Ozurk or somethin Luke that but he's a smashing player he's small but very talented imo. Anyways if Gers were lookin for gems he's one mid or not, think Walsall got him for 250k so god knows what he would go for? oh and I don't play footy manager! honest Bears keep an yes out for this guy!

3.) 07 Feb 2017 08:14:48
Andy1872, D'u mean Oztumer? He's 5'3" tall and approx 9 stone. Now I don't know anything about him other than he's scored a few goals this year. But surely we need a big strong CDM first and not another lightweight midfielder?

4.) 07 Feb 2017 14:43:53
Haha always looking for a sugar daddy! I guess the welfare state is always alive and well at Ibrox, no matter what team or tribute act is playing there!
Remember the fighting fund LMFAO just too funny

7.) 08 Feb 2017 02:53:07
Parky totally hear what your sayin suppose all I'm putting across is he's a player I would like yin see at Ibrox BUT the other positions are priority. Not sure if the Turkish lad is a wingers or an attacking central midfeild? think the latter

8.) 08 Feb 2017 10:29:56
Wee Bill.
I agree that Jim McColl would be a great guy to have at the helm but I'm sure there is something written in to the contract at his firm whereby he is not permitted to invest heavily in an outside venture. Even though it is his firm the shareholders are in charge



04 feb 2017 13:44:16
i keep reading that rangers want to close the gap with celtic? do our fans not realise the absolute best we can hope for is to reduce the gap by 6 points if we beat them in both remaining games?

the rest of the gap is not in our hands, the rest of the league needs to start taking points off them too. we might be 25 points behind them but sadly this is not all our fault, they have only dropped 2 points, one draw, that's all so its not exactly rocket science to see.

yes we have dropped a lot of points to other clubs, but where we are at present the season is dead, all we can try to do is stay with aberdeen and try to pip them to 2nd place. next season is a different level of problems.

wee bill

1.) 04 Feb 2017 15:27:56
Wee Bill honestly mate stop making excuses, it's not all our fault? You seriously trying to blame other teams for our dismal performances? The truth is we shouldn't be in a fight for second place! Warbs has hade plenty of money. The guys signed 15 players and were talking 2 have maybe worked out. Its absolutely shocking!

2.) 04 Feb 2017 15:39:12
It's 100% our fault! We have dropped 6 points against Celtic, the rest we've dropped have been against the other dross in the league, so if this Rangers team had done what they should the gap would be 4 points

3.) 04 Feb 2017 17:00:42
Thats some proper left field thinking that.



30 Jan 2017 23:43:12
interesting to note that a few of our loanees out at other clubs are only getting a few minutes here and there. Hardly likely to learn anything nor do their careers any good, they would be better and fitter playing in our under 20's team

wee bill

1.) 31 Jan 2017 11:24:32
A few of them often come back to play for the U20's anyway if they don't get game time.

2.) 31 Jan 2017 12:30:14
Wrong they have had plenty of game time, Liam Kelly is first choice keeper at livi
Hardie has had plenty of game time, so has Jordan Thomson, crooks hasn't had much yet, but he's only been there for 2 games, there's a couple other players who I forget, I think wee mcCrorie is one who has also just went on loan



17 Jan 2017 18:44:55
in my opinion its not the quality of the youngsters that's the problem, its the quality of the coaching. Top teams in England and Europe seem to be able to bring on their kids so the coaching methods AND the coaches themselves must be a big factor.

If we want to produce talent we have to get TOP QUALITY coaches in. has anyone actually gone on our website and had a look at the QUANTITY of backroom staff? practically full of unknown people no doubt picking up good money but for what exactly? no end product means failure so maybe that's where we should be looking.

wee bill

1.) 17 Jan 2017 19:18:39
Time will tell when the current crop of 15/ 16 year olds should be breaking through, until then it's hard to be too critical of the current coaches given the mess they inherited

2.) 17 Jan 2017 21:22:06
I don't agree wee Bill, a youth coach doesn't have to be a famous ex player to be a decent coach, in fact a lot of ex pros make very average coaches and I think we have made that mistake way too often with the jobs for the boys mentality.
Our youth coaches have been in place for less than 18 months, a total new philosophy is in place, the older youths have been released so that the really young guys with potential are being pushed into games with older, physically bigger opponents with the aim they will develop quicker.
Time will tell if it produces but I don't c how we can be negative about a youth set up that's been in place for just over a year

3.) 17 Jan 2017 23:17:00
I was involved in youth coaching at a very high level. Coaches who came from the professional playing ranks found it difficult to relate to the kids and to teach them anything much at all. The boys related far better to other coaches who had good communication skills and the ability to pass on knowledge. Most of these coaches were 'unknown people'. Even the Liverpool set-up under Steve Heighway was peppered with 'unknown people'. All the best set-ups had a mixture of both, and indeed I worked for some time in a partnership with someone you would all consider to be a Rangers hero. It's not names we need, it's knowledge and understanding combined with patience.

4.) 18 Jan 2017 20:56:19
Our academy under warburton has been totally revamped, our coaches are first class, and btw our academy will produce real quality in the next 5 years



11 Jan 2017 14:47:11
i'm afraid my opinion on loaning out our youngsters is not in line with some opinions, i feel that loaning them out to diddy teams with ramshackle stadiums and no atmosphere is turning our younguns into diddy players, what exactly is the benefit? they would be far better playing EVERY week in our under 20 team and LEARNING something
dontshoot me down, its MY opinion, and the proof is in the fact that hardly any of them make the grade by being loaned in this way

wee bill

1.) 11 Jan 2017 15:05:01
McKay did, he was loaned out before and now look at him.

Warburtons approach is that they get a better playing experience playing against older players and pro's than playing against others their own age. Another thing is that when a pampered player from our set up takes us for granted and the facilities they have for granted sending them on loan is a good way to tell them to find another gear to make the grade or they simply won't make it.

2.) 11 Jan 2017 17:05:12
Wee Bill I can't agree going out on loan to lesser clubs make these young players appreciate what they have at Rangers I used to be at Murray Park two to three nights a week and I was told McKay was getting a bit big for his boots and thinking he had made it started slackening off they sent him out on loan to a wet and windy Morton now we see a player who knows which side his bread is buttered on

3.) 11 Jan 2017 18:18:07
McKay is the exception sadly. Only today another 3 young players sent out on loan have been released. Another example of Rangers not sending them on loan to improve but to get them off the wage bill

4.) 11 Jan 2017 19:45:55
You're attitude to the lower leagues is stinking. Easter Road and Tannadice attract more fans than half the SPL. Morton vs St Mirren pulled in over 5,000 the other week. Playing with seasoned pros in a competitive environment sorts the men from the boys. Just as it done for McKay.

5.) 12 Jan 2017 15:12:45
Absolutely agree 100% wee Bill. It's what they call a self fulfilling prophecy. Playing at these grounds with no atmosphere, ramshackle stands and half wits bawling and shouting at you is not the answer.

Ball, Oduwa and Zelalem don't belong to us and Oduwa didn't cut it. As for the other 3 hardie and Burt got minutes on a couple of occasions so only McKay has been a success. My concern is for the other young talented lads like Murdoch, Walsh, Crawford, the McCrories, Jordan Thompson etc etc etc

How long then must they wait? Now we will be playing harder teams so they will be even further down the pecking order as we "wont want to take chances "?
Yes he IS making moves as you have said, but how many are actually going to get games?

Warbs threw Senderos in at the deepend v Celtic and managed to ruin the guys reputation, he wasn't match fit and Warbs should have clearly known that but Senderos is still getting stick from the fans for what happened.

a number of players have been messed about and played in wrong positions by Warburton, and i see he is letting more youngsters leave permanently. The guy has no conscience, i don't like him, i don't rate him and his we'll learn from it attitude, he did well last season, but if you look at figures he didn't do much in the second half of last season except for the 2-2 against Celtic. I feel sorry for all the youngsters who try hard and think that one day they might get a chance? we've more chance of catching Celtic this season than all the youngsters have of getting a game
