Barry McKay is a good player championship level he played decent in less than a handful of games last year, as good as a player down, new contracts are deserved on merit and performance and he doesn't deserve it complete liability sell now.

Agree10 Disagree2

27 Jun 2017 17:03:20
Eh? Battled there a bit. McKay's a great player. Needs to get stuck into the 50-50 ball I agree but has the best first touch of any player in our team and I wouldn't be so hasty getting rid of him.

27 Jun 2017 17:45:05
I personally think Mckay has been played out of position. i'd play him as a number 10 behind the striker. I don't think we have a better passer of the ball than him and I think he would be much more involved playing behind the front man.

27 Jun 2017 20:31:24
I've never understood why a right footed player was continually played on the left, and vice-versa, ie Mckay and Waghorn, another tactic of the breadman!

27 Jun 2017 21:09:55
McKay a great player yeah right, great players are consistent can win games on their own, as I said good championship player and before you say he didn't have the players round about him neither did old man miller 15 years or so senior, Barry thinks he's better than what he is

27 Jun 2017 12:22:42
I still reckon we are 3 or 4 quality players away. Especially a quality right back who can defend and a playmaker in midfield . We need to get this done in next week or two otherwise the 2nd qualifying tie against limassol looks like it could be a problem.

Agree3 Disagree6

27 Jun 2017 12:40:31
Kranjcar is a playmaker and Dorrans is also coming in. Tav is a really good player, now he will have license to roam forward thanks to Jack.

27 Jun 2017 14:15:32
Dorrans is far from confirmed, Kranjcar is far from his best, your post is far from well considered.

yours sincerely,


27 Jun 2017 16:32:18

Tavernier can't defend and Ryan Jack being there doesn't change that. I'm also sure Jack wasn't signed so he could cover Tavernier. Hopefully we get £1m plus for him and go out and get a better right back

27 Jun 2017 18:07:48
Should not let Tav go if anything less than £2m. Agree that JAck will provide more secure cover for the defence this season. Believe Jack will be an outstanding signing.

27 Jun 2017 23:17:08
We will never get 2m for tac and would be very surprised if we get 1m.

Jelly and ice-cream when rangers fly

I don't get this apparent treatment of McKay, to me i think he could vastly improve with the better standard of player at ibrox now, and to be fair we seem to be lacking in the wide areas, does pedro have a plan to further address that area of the pitch, maybe barry is not conducting himself in an appropriate manner, who knows but i genuinely see a decent player there going to waste

Agree14 Disagree12

27 Jun 2017 09:58:13
Does he have the attitude to improve, well the manager doesn't seem to think so and unless you know Mackay personally which the manager will and see him in training every day then what do you know about a guy who looks like he can't be bothered

27 Jun 2017 09:58:53
I'm guessing that Pedro has looked at him last season and in training and has decided that he's either not good enough or his attitude is not right.

That being the case, he would rather get decent cash for him now than nothing later.

Fantasy football is great but we play in the real world - trust the manager

27 Jun 2017 10:39:48
He isn't consistent enough. And his final ball is poor. That is if he puts a cross in. He needs to grow up very soon or he'll be off.

27 Jun 2017 10:41:58
I totally trust this manager, i'm just hoping with letting barry leave he has another player lined up because this season could turn out to be quite testing with euro games etc and we seem to have a thin squad so we could burn out, i do reckon we need another few players in

27 Jun 2017 11:44:12
Mackay is simply not good enough the boy thinks he is a better player than he is, if Nottingham forest want him then sell him

27 Jun 2017 12:23:19
spot on lawbear, and he is not a kid anymore although many fans seem to comment as if he is, not only does he seem to believe some of the hype he received and when you add his constant dodging of everything that is not better than 50/ 50 it is more than enough for me to say get what cash we can.

27 Jun 2017 09:35:05
Why don't we loan the likes of crooks, dodoo, o'halloran, halliday to the teams in our league but they cld'nt play against us, it wld strengthen other teams to play against the unwashed which they hv been doing to us past few seasons, examples stokes, Henderson and christie any thots.

Agree4 Disagree3

27 Jun 2017 09:50:42
Halliday apparently off to Azerbaijan on loan and Forest interested in Mackay. I'd keep Crooks in the hope he recovers from injury (never had a chance under Warburton) and Dodoo never really got a chance either. Get rid of Kiernan, Hodson, Waghorn, et al, if on loan in the SPL fine.

27 Jun 2017 10:37:10
JBL27.how will loaning these players to spfl teams help them against the unwashed they couldn't do it last year with Rangers? You just have to face facts that they probably just aren't good enough and no team would probably take them with the wages they are on ( even paying half)

27 Jun 2017 11:47:04
I wouldn't loan out any of the players you listed they simply aren't good enough to make a difference to any sport teams. They are decent players but like I say wouldn't make a difference. I heard Crooks is wanted by Scunthorpe so sell him

27 Jun 2017 07:52:24
I think this is my last post on this subject- as I have made to many on it and I'm actually boring myself.

Well anyway- after yesterday's Dorrans story, along the lines of (Peds looking to get the nod to sign Dorrans within 24 hours) .

That was yesterday today nothing, not a word. Just that he still has interest in Jamie Walker and Dorrans, no time frame, no exclusive BS. Nothing.

The papers in Scotland probably know as much on that subject than we do! Because with the new manager and board not leaking things like days of old there making things up. Now you'd think after yesterday's headline news that the Norwich board are to consider the offer in 24 hours, you'd think they would be something. Especially with the Euro wildcard last spot nearing a close?

I like it in a way we're kinda suffocating the Rhebel and Sun. And others, but now it's becoming clear to me that there just making up graham Dorrans stories to sell papers.

But the only people responsible really for turning deals into full blown transfer sagas are usually the our daily rags!

How many more times are we going to hear the deal is so close for Dorrans and the next minute nothing.

I know anyone reading this may think I'm stating the obvious- and I would agree!
I think that's when it's time to move onto a different subject.

P. s if for some miraculous reason he signs today, I'll look 👀 like a impatient idiot LOL 😂

On a nicer note 📝, I would like to thank Andy Halliday for his service. Not good enough. But a really nice guy, I hope 🤞 things work well for you in Azerbaijan 🇦🇿.
You were one of us and u tried, not Rangers standard but at least your trying to move on not sit on your current contract like a leech, like a feeling could mention.


Agree6 Disagree5

27 Jun 2017 01:09:20
All this talk of Tav going to Forrest I'd personally take anything over a million for him and go out sign the boy Logan from aberdeen. Very similar player but can defend unlike Tav.

Agree1 Disagree7

27 Jun 2017 05:58:27
How do you know they would sell him to us?

27 Jun 2017 08:32:49
Tav is better than logan

27 Jun 2017 08:48:33
Logan is absolutely awful! Aberdeen's worst player!

27 Jun 2017 01:12:16
Ed, can you do a poll to see who everyone would prefer between Dorrans and McLean?

{Ed033's Note -

Dorrans or McLean Poll

Agree2 Disagree1

27 Jun 2017 08:56:36
Dorrans all day long a no brainier

27 Jun 2017 09:54:33
No brainer lol. people acting as if dorrans is world class hardly got a game at Norwich. rather we signed McLean. dorrans 30 yr old, no sell on value.

27 Jun 2017 10:43:22
Dorrans played every game at Norwich except when he was injured

27 Jun 2017 12:35:53
I agree, Dorrans all day long. Just wanted to show Caw he's one of a select few that doesn't rate him.

27 Jun 2017 14:11:19
If correct then he must have been injured for half the games over the last 2 seasons.

26 Jun 2017 22:02:15
Rangers star Andy Halliday has been linked with a move to Azerbaijan.

I'm in the middle with that story, Halliday is a bluenose, through and through who has done his best and for that I respect him; his best, however is not good enough to improve our team and I feel that he won't return if he goes out on loan.

I'd wish him all the best for whatever move.

Agree8 Disagree1

27 Jun 2017 00:18:21
Lets not be kidded, he would never have got near a jersey pre admin. Very average player that only endeared himself to the support as he was a bluenose and badge kisser.

27 Jun 2017 07:50:25
bit harsh gosman, let me say i completely agree not rangers class, but to be fair not only a bluenose and badge kisser but also gave his all and willing to dig in unlike some others playing alongside him.

27 Jun 2017 08:21:34
Not real rangers standard, but gave his all and done a job in championship.

At least he's willing to move on. hopefully others will follow suit.

26 Jun 2017 15:27:35
The following have not been named in the list to UEFA for Thursday night's game Rob Kiernan, Andy Halliday, Matt Crooks, Harry Forrester, Michael O'Halloran and Joe Dodoo.

Agree7 Disagree1

26 Jun 2017 15:53:34
Isn't Crooks still injured anyway?

26 Jun 2017 16:35:52
Unless Jo Dodoo injured major error of judgement by Pedro. Watched warm up game against St Johnstone, Ryan Jack looks class act and of the rest Bates, Holt, Tav and Nico had decent games. Neither of the 2 Portuguese boys loooked lively or anything special.

26 Jun 2017 17:06:36
I must've watched different games, Cardoso looked comfortable on the ball and will only improve next to Alves and Dalcio was always keen to get on the ball and move forward. Might have just been a friendly but going to at least give them a chance to play a competitive game before the negative comments 👍

26 Jun 2017 17:08:55
tommy wright is after MOH again can see him go bk to play at his own level

26 Jun 2017 17:47:57
Dodoo has had his chance, sell him or loan him out.

26 Jun 2017 20:58:08
Fd Jo dodoo has done nothing when he has the ball he does nothing in fact his touch makes him look like he is wearing steel toe cap boots. Last year the level of our hopes were never matched by the performance on the pitch and I wanted these players to come good but let's face it, it didn't happen and we can't waste time having another year like last. Where did the hype from dodoo come from I for one had never heard of him the boy never played first team football yet we all thought he'd be amazing well he ain't and we should punt him now

26 Jun 2017 21:03:47
How is that a mistake? dodoo is a terrible player can't believe he gets away with it with some people shocking player get rid asap

26 Jun 2017 22:34:58
Dodoo should be kept in the squad. He looks lively when he comes off the bench and scored a few goals. I wouldn't object to loaning him out short term to Dundee or Kille to see how he progresses with more game time but IMO he's got good potential

27 Jun 2017 00:56:48
Dodoo is not good enough although certainly not the worst from last season. I'd rather keep him over Waghorn but wouldn't be unhappy if both went.

27 Jun 2017 06:01:55
It's a mystery how Waghorn has so far been sparred during the cull. Truly awful player who seems to have a skill for ballooning the ball over the bar from close range. Add to that him being a carthorse it's incredible this over weight lump still gets a game
