See papers reporting that an unnamed English team are going to be tabling a 7M+ bid for Tav.

What’s people’s opinion on this.?

Personally think he isn’t Rangers captain material and we could do a lot with 7M if it was to go back into strengthening the team.

Agree6 Disagree9

08 Jan 2019 17:11:52
If true i'd take 7 million for him only if we could get a replacement straight away.

08 Jan 2019 17:44:29
We’ve got one. John Flanigan, he’s a better defender than Tav in my opinion.

08 Jan 2019 17:42:33
Personally I thing SG has forgotten more about football than most of us will ever know.

He made Tav Captain, he picks him every week and he raves about him.

It would be really good if you eager beaver Fifa experts screwed the nut and got behind him - unless of course one of you is Alex Ferguson.

08 Jan 2019 18:08:59
I agree with you, DK18!Sick and tired of continually hearing this witch-hunt against our captain james tavernier! There's an old saying ie. "You don't miss water until the well runs dry"! That would most definitely apply if we sold tav! Don't care what anyone says, when tav's not playing, we're nowhere near as good on our right side! Get behind our captain, instead of badgering him continually! He's a superb player and steven gerrard thinks so also! I hope he isn't sold!

08 Jan 2019 18:41:45
Sell him. Supercoop, the sage of the forum. Not!

08 Jan 2019 19:36:45
Supercoop don’t worry Tav is going no where this window unless receive offer of £15m.

08 Jan 2019 19:36:46
I'm not a Tav basher but I think 7mil would be great business.

08 Jan 2019 20:01:22
Would definitely sell him . I'm not his biggest fan. He's had a handful of decent games and a couple of outstanding games . Defensively he's a liability, the amount of goals we've conceded because at certain points he's been the furthest man forward is worrying . I've never rated him as a captain just doesn't do it for me . I respect other bears opinions though on wanting to keep him . Just need to see what happens.

08 Jan 2019 20:05:14
Coop, Tav is a great player but would accept £7million!

08 Jan 2019 20:14:31
No1 said we aren't behind him but if someone came in with 7 mill it would be hard to turn down.

08 Jan 2019 21:45:33
Just hope whoever is biding 7 mil hasn’t seen him taking a corner 😳.

09 Jan 2019 08:45:24
I was told by an ex player previously it was Wigan but he said yesterday he had been told Bournemouth were now favourites.

09 Jan 2019 09:57:25
There is no way we could turn down £7m for him.

09 Jan 2019 13:25:08
I'd take 7mil for tav. Ok flanagan doesn't have the attacking threat that tav does but on the other hand tav doesn't have the defensive capabilities that flanagan has. I don't think we would be weaker as a team if tav left and flanagan stepped in. I think 7mil would be good business. Having said that, I don't want to lose anyone just now. I'd rather we add quality to what we have (which we have already) and really make a push for the title. 👍.

10 Jan 2019 06:25:10
Tav is Rangers thru and thru and we would sorely miss him and his energy. Flanagan not even close to his calibre. We need him to stay if we want the title this year. However if he wants to move and he can earn more for his family and we get a windfall then good luck to him. Too many Bears are down on Tav and I don't understand it and those same Bears don't deserve him.

08 Jan 2019 16:45:34
Well more than likely bring a cb in for next season who would you like to see come to rangers.

Agree0 Disagree1

08 Jan 2019 17:04:31
Cooper from Millwall.

08 Jan 2019 17:12:22
Thats who i would like us to buy aswell.

08 Jan 2019 17:22:50
He's the one (cooper)

08 Jan 2019 20:13:09
Ask that guy Gerrard, he'll know.

08 Jan 2019 21:39:08
As quoted we say TAV is defensively a liability but what about offensively the number of assists and goals he has scored is phenomenal for a RB.
If he was sold and personally I hope he remains at Ibrox who would replace him?
Currently we only have Flanagan as our only recognised RB at the club so our options are limited.
In the current market we would be looking for more than 7 million especially if an EPL team is reportedly interested.
In SG we trust.

08 Jan 2019 23:12:33
Copeland. Gerrard having a look a an american right back called matt polster he's out in tenerife training with the squad i think he's a right back.

08 Jan 2019 13:29:33
Probably just me that thinks, over the past and present few seasons, our defence although improved has been responsible for some of our defeats and draws by supposedly lesser clubs.

Unlike the most successful EPL clubs, we don't always seem have two defenders in our own half to stop long ball counter attacks that I feel have been instrumental in us conceding late goals.

Having said that, of course although Stevie is a rookie manager I firmly believe and trust in him to get us to where we want to be sooner rather than later. C'mon the Gers.

Agree2 Disagree5

08 Jan 2019 13:53:59
Goals win you games so most of the blame lies with the attackers for me also the games we have lost have been down to individual errors.

08 Jan 2019 14:08:38
Games we have lost or drawn in most cases we should have been out of sight.
Having 20+ corners and 70% possession and not getting 3 points is criminal against 'lesser' teams who are woring their socks off.

08 Jan 2019 14:16:02
I would agree the bear, the amount of times we have been ahead and been pummeling opposition defences without scoring a second, then we lose a late goal. The essence being we should/ could have been comfortable.

08 Jan 2019 15:15:19
Couldnt we just say the team rather than defence or attack getting the blame.

08 Jan 2019 17:07:09
Don’t know how you can blame the attackers since we have been top scorers. It’s been collective. Poor players all over that needed replacing.

08 Jan 2019 21:49:06
Stevo is no rookie manager anymore . he humped the unwashed with a good clean performance.

08 Jan 2019 12:34:43
Very happy bear with our transfer signings so far, like probably most of us are. So ED, could you please run a poll a amongst all us bears to gauge who we think the best signing we've made so far. Cheers ED, would be much appreciated mate. The poll being who do we reckon has been the best rangers signing so far in January, ie. jermain Defoe, steven davis, glen kamara or jordan jones?

Rangers Signings Poll

Agree0 Disagree4

08 Jan 2019 13:14:05
Coop. To early to judge. All seem good signings though. Defoe and Davis haven't played for a bit. don't know that much about Kamara and Jones not any better than Kent or Middleton. Having said that i'm excited to watch them play.

08 Jan 2019 13:35:38
Went for Davis, I think he will be terrific and will improve all the players around him with his composure and timing of a pass, leadership etc.

08 Jan 2019 16:36:17
Supercoop, good picture of you welcoming Defoe to the bears. Well done.

08 Jan 2019 16:38:18
A poll on the best signing we've made when none of them have actually played yet. tommycooper has surpassed even his own inane self with this one.

08 Jan 2019 16:50:03
ed can we have a poll on how many polls coops is going to ask for before the end of the season 🤣🤣🤣.

08 Jan 2019 10:53:11
Great signings in the window, very pleased!

The Jordan Jones signing is a strange one. I would have thought a right sided winger would have been more of a priority. We have Kent probably 1st choice on the left then Murphy, Grezda and Middleton all play on the left. Lafferty can also play there. I would say Candeas is the only natural right sided winger.

I'd hate to see this signing impact Middletons progression. I bet Middleton even with less game time has more assists than jones or at least I bet it's close between the two.

Bears if you were to order our wingers from best to worse including jones what would be your order?

For me it would be:
Grezda (yet to prove himself but might still come good)

Agree3 Disagree10

08 Jan 2019 11:22:29
Middleton is way over rated. Also kent murphy jones grezda are all right footed. don't think they are out and out left wingers. Think its been due to fitting them in with candieas right wing. Am sure they could easily switch sides.

08 Jan 2019 11:23:41
Also i would go


08 Jan 2019 12:17:01
I know they both play on the left but I would like to see Kent and Jones on the wings or maybe Murphy.

08 Jan 2019 12:21:39
Middleton is a young lad with bags of potential. I wouldn't say he was overrated at all.

08 Jan 2019 13:11:49
Deary me, have half of you lot been watching a different Glen Middleton? He has almost the same amount of goals in ten games than jones has had in over 100 games. Many Killie fans that I know say jones is good but has no end product.

08 Jan 2019 16:26:07
For me jones is a more finished player than middleton however middleton has potential he isn't the kinda guy i'd turn too at big away games to start matches. I think he's more an impact player. Jones has looked good in the bigger games for killie and has looked sharp on an international level too, free transfer = no brainer.

08 Jan 2019 09:08:22
Really enciuraged by noise coming from the winter training camp. Davis and Defoe have arrived and great to see Dorrans and Murphy on location. 8 vital competitive matches between now and end of February including Aberdeen away.

Agree2 Disagree3

08 Jan 2019 05:55:54
I see steven davis has been handed the iconic no.10 shirt at rangers. Just hope he's still got the no.10 rangers jersey on his back,
for next season and beyond also! I've also rated davo very highly and hope his original 6 month stay, becomes a good bit longer! I wonder if jermain defoe will be given the vacant, famous no.9 rangers jersey? I really hope he does. Defoe most definitely is a proper no.9!

Agree7 Disagree4

08 Jan 2019 06:54:33
Stick on for the 9 jersey SuperCooper, I had a swatch at Defoe’s Instagram account and the man is super fit, never out the gym and from what I’ve read is tee-total. A consummate professional who will rub off well on all our younger players when they see the dedication the man has to being the best he can be. Hopefully bang in a few goals too!

{Ed001's Note - Defoe claims he has never had alcohol in his life. Or has claimed it in the past. Not sure if he has had a drink since then or admitted having one as a youngster.}

08 Jan 2019 21:52:40
If he reads this site he won’t be long taking a drink . hic.

07 Jan 2019 22:29:25
Got to laugh at kris commons saying that players at nottingham forrest are comparing ollie burke with gareth bale. Wtf he couldn't get a game for West brom gareth bale was once the most expensive players around.

Agree6 Disagree2

08 Jan 2019 13:23:32
Forest supporter here. don't kid yourself mate. he'll tear up every back line in that league. didn't know he played for West Brom either. 😂😂😂.

08 Jan 2019 17:43:03
@ Rogie Red, don't you kid YOURSELF mate, Burke won't be a first choice at the Dhims. Brenda won't drop Forrest to play him.

08 Jan 2019 17:52:39
Im not kidding myself mate its people like commons who is at the kidding. Comparing a young lad who i don't doubt is a decent player with gareth bale c'mon don't be daft.

07 Jan 2019 20:53:16
Here's one that will split opinion. Gary Hooper's contract is up at the end of the season. Would you take him? I always thought he was a good player for them and I would take him for a season or two for sure!

Agree1 Disagree15

07 Jan 2019 21:02:24
What you been smoking?! Never ever ever!

07 Jan 2019 21:29:27
It won’t happen. But why not? We brought Kenny Miller back after he played for them and scored against us.

07 Jan 2019 21:57:37
He'd be 4th choice at best.

07 Jan 2019 22:12:13
He would never come and i wouldn't want him to, there's a chance they would resign him tho.

07 Jan 2019 22:30:48
Split opinions you say. just aboot split my sides after reading that.

07 Jan 2019 22:54:43
Never good enough.

08 Jan 2019 04:37:55
Gary Hooper? Gary Cooper passed faster!

08 Jan 2019 09:58:08
It’s funny but not surprising how both sides of the divide can’t say anything positive about each other’s players past or present. Hooper would be a good signing and at on 30 he would be less of a gamble the Defoe!

07 Jan 2019 14:22:33
Good shout recalling Hardie I think! Hope he gets used at Cowden along with young Dallas. Just checked Hardie's stats and he's doing just fine for senior goals. Near on 30 senior goals is not too shabby!
