mclean, walker, moult. all available to add to next seasons squad for free this month. hope the club approaches these players as feel it would be pretty negligent to ignore them. i'm expecting a surge of disagrees but want to ask any fellow bears who consider these guys not good enough to name examples of players of equal or better standard who are available for hee-haw other than sign on and wages! just want to add that for me when we bring these guys in we get rid of rossiter, kranjcar, herrera. dalcio will be gone also. don't know whether miller will play on next season. saves wages brings in better players.

12 Dec 2017 14:51:07
Moult yes fur get the other 2 man

12 Dec 2017 14:58:44
Would certainly take moult as for walker and McLean I don’t think they would improve us greatly.

12 Dec 2017 15:15:26
Seen Moult is supposed to have signed a pre-contract with Preston.

12 Dec 2017 16:10:20
Unfortunately I think we have missed the boat regarding moult. we probably could have got him in the summer

12 Dec 2017 16:23:11
We are too late on Moult hea away to preston

12 Dec 2017 17:09:00
The rumour is that Preston are giving him over 20k a week!
To rich for us!

12 Dec 2017 17:10:32
i hadn’t seen the news about moult, think walker is certainly better than dalcio/ nemane/ candeias/ windass and therefor would improve us. take jordan rossiters 10k a week and use it to sign mclean, as long as he kicks a ball once every 2 seasons then it’s an improvement on rossiter, also get kranjcar tae. so they would both improve us imo. in fact saying they wouldn’t improve us means you just haven’t thought before replying.

12 Dec 2017 18:05:50
How long is rossiters contract?
Nobody going to buy him. My granny is fitter than he is and she is dead. If we want rid we will have to pay him off

12 Dec 2017 18:50:58
Lump you say take Rossiter ten grand get rid of Kranjcar and a few more I could think of, well sorry but they are all under contract and will not move or will have to be paid off and we don't have the money . We need a manager but that doesn't seem to be happening if we do get Murty it will be because we can't get anyone else he has said himself he was told the job full time is not on offer. The Mcinnes saga showed there was something in the background he didn't like as the board thought they had their man hence the classless statement so as for signings in Jan I don't think there will be much business done we need to get the share issue done get some money in and start again next season hoping we can get second with this squad

12 Dec 2017 19:57:15
It will cost us probably less money to pay a player off from their contract early rather than paying it every week till they are gone.

Probably be able to reduce the overall cost by coming to an arrangement, but as you are saying it doesn't mean that you can spend all the wage money as most of it will be accounted for in the pay off.

But it certainly makes sense if a player is almost guaranteed not to play again.

Niko probably has a lot of quality and experience that he can pass on to the team, so no doubt he is worth having around but to be fair its probably not great value for money.

12 Dec 2017 20:11:58
Show some respect to your wee gran man 😬😬😬

13 Dec 2017 08:07:19
Who would you drop in our midfield to accommodate McLean? As for walker he certainly isn’t better than windass and candieas

13 Dec 2017 11:14:15
It's not really a case of dropping somebody Vanbasten9. At the moment we only have Jack, Dorrans, Holt, Mcrorie, Barjonas. In a situation like now where potentially only Holt and Barjonas will be fit for the Hibs game, it would make sense to have Mclean. I personally think he's a better player than Holt, Mcrorie or Barjonas. Mcrorie and Barjonas could be future stars but they are not right now. And he's available for free. I didn't mention Rossiter because he basically doesn't exist we've seen that little of him and Kranjcar hardly kicked a ball in ages.

12 Dec 2017 12:00:11
Right guys my elf on the shelf turned up today, turns out that he's been busy helping our directors secure a new manager and remember this came from the elfs mouth itself, somebody called Mr S. Clause, i'm not sure if i trust the wee bugger as last night he had my wee ones barbie in a compromising position and a half bottle of gin by his side but by all means the wee dude is a staunch bear.
He said the new guy is a perfect match but also said that we would need to get the parking updated for his large mode of travel and also likes a winter break just after xmas 🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲❄❄❄
Merry xmas bears and readers from other teams.

Fpmsl 😅😅😅😅😅😅 man

12 Dec 2017 08:04:56
Herrara and this invisible dalcio are the worst signings in years. How we didn't get moult is killing me. Mon the Gers for wed. Put holt on mcginn just to nick ball and kick lumps out of stokes, he will see red. It makes me laugh thinking if Ian Ferguson was playing. LEGEND.

Agree2 Disagree10

12 Dec 2017 09:38:11
Moult is a good player for motherwell
But would he be good for rangers just look at nicky clark was scoring for fun before he came to rangers then strugled.
We are going to strugle to persuade players to come with no manager in place the board need get a new man in place before we sign players.

We as club should be keeping a eye on the austrain slovenia croatio denmark
norway sweden markets for players this is where you can find good buys

12 Dec 2017 09:52:37
Herrera hasn't had much time to do anything. he keeps coming on with about 2 mins to go.

12 Dec 2017 10:05:11
Personally i would look to move herrera and pena on hopefully pedro mite fancey the 2 off them and take them back to mexico

12 Dec 2017 10:58:06
Im not fussed abt Moult but at least he was doing it in the spl and against the likes of us, the sheep and the mhanks. Clark only done it in the championship for Queens

12 Dec 2017 13:21:01
moult does well for ‘well. you would think he would do just as good for us if not better. rumour has it that herrera is on big wages so even tho he hasn’t had much chance to show his talent i would like to see him move on, probably in both his and pena’s interests to do so as they will want to go the world cup just like big bruno

12 Dec 2017 07:44:14
Hi all. Does anyone else think Big Bruno has sulked since Pedro's departure?

Agree5 Disagree12

12 Dec 2017 09:59:32
based on what?

12 Dec 2017 10:59:53
I don't think Alves is anywere near as good as all my fellow fans think he is. honking for the goal on Sat and against Hibs at the start of the season and makes loads of needless fouls for me

12 Dec 2017 14:58:23
If Alves is not happy at our club get shot of him, he has not set the heather on fire since he came to us anyway

12 Dec 2017 14:50:22
No - he put himself forward and done the press conference on Friday. He spoke very well.

12 Dec 2017 14:55:57
Away and finger some trees.

Bruno is our best centre halves in years and that includes the years of Dorin Goian etc.

Rock solid and classy on the ball.

12 Dec 2017 14:56:53
I see pedro has axed the striker at his new club, I know the very man to replace him and a cracking midfielder to go with him, buy one get one for free.

{Ed033's Note - Rangers can tell Pedro to 'bogoff' again.

12 Dec 2017 18:12:10
Appreciate the replies, I never said he was a bad player. He has had injuries and just thought with PC gone he might too. I'd rather he stayed.

12 Dec 2017 20:16:24
Alves classy on the ball well c on wed then we're getting hump but hope am wrong

13 Dec 2017 08:23:02
Classy on the ball🤔? he's forever humping it up the park!

11 Dec 2017 20:06:51
I'd be the first to admit the Rangers statement was, at best clumsy and at worst stupid, but some of the guff being spouted in the papers is wild!
That twit in the s*n is talking about everything from rioting fans, bigoted club to tax evasion. Any reason going, to verbally abuse us it seems
I'm confused though, because as far as I can see, we have not hired a coach that we didn't get to talk to!
The whole thing was only a massive fuss because the very people who made a fuss of it, are now making a bigger fuss.
Couldn't make it up
No one likes us, we don't care!

Agree12 Disagree6

12 Dec 2017 06:38:17
I'd agree to a certain extent. Rangers have been dragged through the mud because the board have chosen to do thing their way (Rightly or wrongly) . what annoys me is the suggestion that we dragged it out, was unprofessional with Aberdeen and DM and blaming us for the continued 'speculation' (which only the media can create) . Let's get it right. 6 weeks ago when PC was sacked, DM could have came out immediately and said "No, I'm an Aberdeen man. not going anywhere. 100%"

There you go, speculation squished!

Your fault Aberdeen and DM. (but that statement was childish. )

11 Dec 2017 15:24:12
Spoke to a manager yesterday in the championship, said the DM deal was done, Jack Ross was to go to Aberdeen and he was to go to st mirren. Was raging it fell through. He thinks Steve McLaren will be our next manager. Not my choice just passing on what he thinks from a man in the know.

Agree5 Disagree14

11 Dec 2017 18:09:55
So there's a championship manager who is well enough 'in the know' to have the ear of both boards, the sheep and Rangers? Aye right.

11 Dec 2017 22:37:36
Who was to go to st mirren?

12 Dec 2017 08:07:14
Lol Steve umbrella hahaha.

11 Dec 2017 14:55:29
My worry now is a bid in January for big mcrorrie it sounds as if we are desperate for cash I can see someone testing our resolve for around 1.5 million that would help us from needing loans to keep finances going but what a potential loss that could be, big lad looks like he a potential good mine both as a player and a longer term sell on.

Agree5 Disagree8

11 Dec 2017 15:06:21
we shouldn't be selling our young talent at all never mind small fees like 1.5 if any club wants any of our young talent we should make them pay just look at the mackay situion

11 Dec 2017 15:22:52
Totally agree 100% but If a bid like that comes in I'd be interested to see what we do

11 Dec 2017 16:42:57
we should be looking to shift high earnears not the younsters so personally i would knock it straight back and keep him along with windass baronjas morelos they have great potenial

11 Dec 2017 17:31:08
In the process of signing a new contract with dof. Good news, boy looks like he has everything.

11 Dec 2017 18:10:52
Agree with Craig that high earners are far more likely to be moved out, but everyone has a price. Looking at other deals, the money available in England and the fact that McCrorie is under contract, I'd assume that any bid for the boy would have to start at £5m minimum. Then again, that could double or even treble within a year or two if he continues to progress, impress and break into the Scotland team - and the board will understand that.

11 Dec 2017 19:59:11
DLC, rangers fc are banging on about youth. this and that then go sell a youngster for 1.5M umm ok? Hypocritical? Try 5M plus or no sell cause if not rangers fc look stupid as well.

11 Dec 2017 23:30:30
I doubt it he's not had a full season and I think he will be judged on his performances against celtic if someone is going to pay big money.

12 Dec 2017 08:08:31
No pressure then. Let the guy progress before you have him sold. Sign a new deal or new Danny Wilson. Guy looks good but let him develop and grow as a player before we and he cashes in. Common sense please.

12 Dec 2017 12:47:46
i’m not saying we should sell any of our young players, but to think we would get 5M for anyone in our squad is ridiculous

11 Dec 2017 13:29:14
Maybe Billy Davies will come back into the reckoning as he would definitely not turn down the offer of being Rangers' manager!

Agree3 Disagree11

11 Dec 2017 13:36:54
i don't think he is in a position to turn down managing his local newsagent never mind us 😂 personally wouldn't trust him with either

11 Dec 2017 15:01:22
I have just read the Jackson article and I agree with him. No doubt those who think it's the Daily Rebel won't. Remember they think it's the Daily Ranger so they can't win. Our statement was a complete embarrassment and for Derek McInnes to turn us down worries the rubbish out of me.

11 Dec 2017 15:46:37
Jackson just having another dig at rangers along with Leckie in the sun.

Everyone agrees the statement released was terrible and poorly thought out and managed.

His article has Nothing about Mcinnes doing an 11th hour u-turn. Jackson even doubts if Mcinnes would have increased his salary at rangers.

Wee Mcinnes led the board up the garden path and shafted them. Where was that bit in the article?

11 Dec 2017 16:38:09
That’s cause it wasn’t an 11th hour u turn dm asked for a guaranteed transfer budget which the board couldn’t do so dm said thanks but no thanks

11 Dec 2017 16:41:07
Baz the bear. I agree with u. I forgot the bit about salary. . I think that's pish. Derek McInnes led them up the garden path? Aye. he waited 6 weeks to go to his boyhood heroes then said no for no real reason. Aye right. If u don't think that there is more to this then that your choice. me. no chance he would have knocked Rangers back without good cause. no chance! He might not be right in his assumption but he didn't like something.

11 Dec 2017 17:12:55
Believe what you want. Just pointing out it’s NOT a balanced article

11 Dec 2017 17:45:05
how can you get a balanced article with the 2 biggest snakes in the papers like leckie and jackson, pair of worthless middens

11 Dec 2017 17:48:11
Getting the salary bit wrong. possibly. . doesn't mean it's not a balanced article. I love giving ma Celtic pals pelters about their conspiracy theories and how they get cheated never defeated. . we r getting as bad! We now just seem to want to read and hear things that suits our particular argument. . maybe I'm doing just that! . but I doubt it

11 Dec 2017 18:24:03
My point is Mcinnes was offered the rangers job. I think that is a fact.

The terms offered to him will be the same terms offered to anyone else I would imagine. Better terms and bigger budget than any team apart from Celtic.

In today’s herald Mcinnes was discussing the team for Saturday. Everything was agreed. Even the players thought he was coming. On the rumours page other fans are saying the same. I am just not buying DM is as pure as the driven snow and big bad DK and the rest of the board are the big bad wolf. IMO Mcinnes bottled it. No beef with you Dutch. I thought it was a poor article along with Leckie in the sun .

11 Dec 2017 23:21:51
Cheers Baz. I've not read the article in The Sun. Maybe Derek did bottle it. I just can't see it. I don't really like or dislike any reporter but for me it's their job to dig deep so therefore they should know more than you or me. I remember when my Celtic loving pal was going on about administration and I thought he was talking pants. but he was right. What will be will be. I wanted Derek McInnes to get the job as I thought and still think he's the best man for it. I still cannae believe he said no and that's why I strongly believe that there is more to this.

12 Dec 2017 08:21:49
If you read rubbish your fed rubbish. Just like Sutton Close your ears when he talks. Stop letting press and ex players invade your ears with their nonsense. Barry great player but desperate for a job. Enough.

12 Dec 2017 08:22:14
Dutch, I worked in newspapers at a senior level for many years. Journos are usually fishing just as much as the rest of us, make up as many stories as the rest of us and sometimes walk right into a winner, like the rest of us. They are sometimes also as gullible as the rest of us, and good managers and directors use that to their advantage by feeding them bull.

11 Dec 2017 13:01:14
Agree totally with Gary 75 regarding the BBC. If you haven't listened at night try it. You will be astonished how much bile comes from Tom English, a replacement for Mr. Spence
The man's hatred for rangers knows no bounds

Agree6 Disagree4

11 Dec 2017 13:04:12
I've heard him a few times now. Whenever Rangers are mentioned he always manages to turn the conversation round to criticise us. Mind you, we don't help ourselves in that regard.

11 Dec 2017 17:50:54
the seeker -how come you answer a post and agree with what the guy is saying and halfway through you do exactly what gannon does by saying we don't help ourselves, that's turning an answer round exactly the same the mind boggles

12 Dec 2017 08:31:36
Who is gannon? and what are you talking about? I just said that whenever I hear Tom English on the radio, he tries to say something negative about our club. Then I mention that I think we don't help our case with the way we handle things nowadays. I assume you don't agree with this and think that the board has always acted impeccably? It's about opinions at the end of the day.

11 Dec 2017 10:03:16
I think we now need to go for a foreign manager. I wanted a British manager but the candidates are poor. Scottish club's will no longer sell their assets to Rangers unless big money is involved. We need to wait to get them on frees. Then all it takes is for the West Brom's and Crystal Palace's to wade in last minute and steal them. Much like what will happen with Walker and McLean. We missed the boat big time on these two and Moult. We now need to look at a different market which is capable of producing in our game. The level of player required is not achievable from English League One. I know think Michel Preud'Homme is as sound a bet as any in the summer with 3 Domestic League Titles under his belt as well as 2 Belgian FA Cups and a Dutch FA Cup. He has a knowledge of the Benelux market and has succeeded everywhere he has been. Time to think outside the box.

Agree7 Disagree4

11 Dec 2017 11:11:31
I don't fink a foreign manager is a bad idea aslong as its someone with abit of clout and not some guy plucked from the 5th best side in the desert 🌵

11 Dec 2017 18:11:00
The unholy trinity getting dredged up again. Moult, Walker, McLean forever and ever amen. Only Moult would get near a Rangers jersey and even then there's better out there.

12 Dec 2017 08:47:52
Duty calls

Can you please name them then?
