I was all happy this transfer window when we were brining in players and getting rid of those we don't need, but now I'm getting worried that in the last half of the window we are going to lose some of our best players.

This morning's need got me worried about Alfredo and Tav and it got me thinking. Would people be happy if we sold both of them and made enough money to buy Kent, and then spend 5 million each on a right back and a striker? Do we have the confidence that with that money we would bring in the same level of quality?

Agree2 Disagree1

I’m not sure, but you’re never sure when you buy new players.

Defoe is not going to give us 30+ goals. Polster is not the right back to replace Tav. However replacing Tav and getting a similar player will cost us closer to 10m or above
So that’s a problem, his goals, delivery and style of play costs money, so we should be charging big bucks if we let him go or he wants to go.

If they go it must be now not in 2 weeks and it must be for at least 30m combined.

20 Jul 2019 11:21:43
If tav goes for over 10 mill that
Is a result the guy can't defend
What he brings we already have players in place that do what he does.

20 Jul 2019 11:24:05
I don't want us to make wholesale changes to our first team. Were supposed to be building on last season not rebuilding the whole squad.

20 Jul 2019 11:24:38
Why are you so worried - are you the manager?

I believe that SG is in control and if he sanctions moves for Tav and Morelos it will be because he is comfortable with it and think it will not affect his chances of success this season.

20 Jul 2019 12:13:21
A don't understand peoples obsession with bringing Kent back. I feel we are more than strong enough to cope without him👍🏻.

20 Jul 2019 12:13:58
I honestly think it’s just paper talk to be honest. Both are good players and will no doubt have great seasons up here but I don’t think either are EPL class or are worth the money we expect. What’s good to see is neither player appear to be pushing for the transfer (I’m surprised by Morelos as I’d have expected him to throw his toys out the pram) . I honestly think both will still be at Rangers until at least Christmas. Going but to your point, I don’t think we should over pay for Kent, he’s a very good player but not worth double figures, from my point of view, I wouldn’t be happy with us over paying for Kent regardless of the other two positions.

20 Jul 2019 12:29:11
I don’t know it’s seems to me if we don’t sign Kent we’re doomed get a grip guys.

20 Jul 2019 12:47:00
spot on royalblue99. I have said on numerous occasions that I do think he is a good player, but not worth the money being asked for.

20 Jul 2019 13:07:47
polster may be better than you think. just needs games and confidence. not saying he is equal to tav, but a replacement, yes along with flan. probably need a backup left back tho, although barisic could move too.

great to have players good enough that teams want them tho. its been a while tbh.

20 Jul 2019 13:04:30
Both bring way more than Kent to the team. We definitely couldn't bring the same level of quality straight away, it's finding people who are raw or rough around the edges and making them that quality.

Could lose Alfie and cope I think, as who better for someone to learn from than defoe - Tav though would be a big big loss.

20 Jul 2019 14:39:33
Would tend to agree that the price for Kent is to high for what he is worth, but I do feel that after a debut season he would kick on in Scotland and could be one of the best players in the league.

Totally agree in that this window should have been about adding qualityy to an already decent squad but I feel if Tav and Morelos go, it will feel more like another rebuilding job.

I've think for us to win the league we need the majority of the squad to not be in their first season in Scotland. That's the key yo consistency and grinding out results.

20 Jul 2019 15:24:11
A small question to you macbow. Who does as good a job at right back at rangers that tav does mate? I'll answer it while i'm waiting on your response, absolutely nobody. No current right back at ibrox comes anywhere near james tavernier, who without a doubt is easily the best right back in scottish football, easily pal! So macbow sorry for being blunt, but if you or anyone else for that matter thinks we have anyone that can do anywhere near as good a job as tav does then you're very much deluded and void of playing position knowledge.

20 Jul 2019 17:35:51
Totally agree sg loyal he's arguably our most important player as we have cover for most other positions but nobody near as good as tavernier.

20 Jul 2019 23:01:54
Well said SGL I really don’t understand those who can not see what Tav brings and his value. He has won us games! A right back winning games! Enough said.

Bears i see the daily record are reporting this morning, that eintract frankfurt had scouts at ibrox on thursday night, watching our striker alfredo morelos again. They were seemingly very impressed with him again and are now almost certain to put in a bid to sign him.
The german club have sold their 2 strikers in luka jovi (£62million) and seb haller (£45million) this close season. So they do have plenty money to burn, £107million to be exact. I've said all close season that i really do think morelos will be sold. Only my own personal opinion.

Agree7 Disagree0

20 Jul 2019 09:21:39
Coop, I agree I think Morelos will go. I also seen Newcastle looking at Tav.
I’d be happy to let either one go but not both and financially we should reject anything less that 15m for either!

20 Jul 2019 09:28:03
To be perfectly honest with you 87shenderson, if i had the choice to keep only 1 between tav and morelos,
i'd rather keep tav and sell morelos. Just my opinion.

20 Jul 2019 09:37:14
I stated yesterday that Morelos would attract attention from clubs after his hattrick. Some doom and gloomers poo pooed his performance. When we have 'fans' who denigrate the performance who needs enemies - mibbees some need an enema!

I also stated that IMHO he is worth £30 million in the crazy English market, especially if you get three clubs vying for his services. Remember scoring in Europe is SCORING IN EUROPE - it makes all the difference to clubs and their scouts. The fact that Morelos did this before our season has started is even more impressive.

When it comes to Rangers my glass is always half full not half empty!

20 Jul 2019 11:17:06
I seem to recall Morelos wasn’t interested in Germany. No?

20 Jul 2019 11:44:54
What about a deal that gets some millions in the bank - 7 or 8. and Fatman clears out for good.
King and co. Should be all over this one.

20 Jul 2019 12:24:20
SG Loyal I agree with you. We can afford to lose Morelos (as long as money is good and we get replacement) . We showed at the end of last season he is not crucial.
However I do believe we are much poorer when Tav is out. He isn't the best defensively but he works perfectly in our system.

20 Jul 2019 00:23:38
shame so many of you don't accept ANY criticism of Morelos, this site is about, banter and opinions, not all about yours being the ONLY opinion. He has NOT learned sufficient English to communicate properly without help, he IS worth 50 per cent less BECAUSE of his attitude, and yellow and red cards, this is putting clubs off paying the right price.

He was missing last season when it mattered, the only thing he does right is score goals, and many of them may have been scored by others in his absence, look at the stats on rangers matchday figures, he is good, but we have proved we don't need him, FACT. but you guys just carry on slinging mud at anyone who dares to criticise him. enjoy the rest of the season, if he stays there will be a red card before Sept is out.

Agree2 Disagree0

20 Jul 2019 02:17:16
I’d say you’re a bit hypocritical Ritchie. Moaning about having an opinion then blasting other people’s opinions about a guy who banged in 30 for us last season. Put it simply if you don’t like him don’t comment on people’s posts about Morelos. Simple.

20 Jul 2019 04:19:08
Season before last how many red cards did Ryan Jack get? How reds did Morelos get that season? Am sure all will change this year. The wee man is undoubtably our best and most dangerous player.

20 Jul 2019 05:06:22
That's YOUR opinion ritchie1 and its no more valid than anyone elses FACT.

20 Jul 2019 07:09:40
Ritchie1 you sound like one of the referees from last season you have him sent off before the season has even started what did he get sent off for lol he is the best player in the league by far and we stick by our own (well some of us) if you know what I mean I for one hope he stays and bangs in another 30 + goals 4 already mate 🇬🇧.

20 Jul 2019 09:50:41
Ritchie, some folk do sling mud which isn't the right thing to do, but when people speak as much mince as you do I can understand why it happens.

20 Jul 2019 10:11:17
Morelos only scores goals says Richie1. Goals win games. That's all he actually needs to do. Yes of course he needs to button it and stay on the park. He's a licence to print money that lad as proven goalscorers are. Massive payday coming when it's right to sell. Another season with proper discipline and money in the bank.

20 Jul 2019 11:26:44
Ritchie, we all know how you feel about him, change the record and start slagging someone else off.

It really bewilders me why so many of us have a problem with his red cards. It’s part of the game, at least 2 of them were never reds. To say he cost us the league is absolute garbage! We have a big enough squad, his replacements failed to score in his absence. When our defence conceded goals to Hibs Aberdeen and Killie was that his fault too?

20 Jul 2019 12:47:35
Posting FACT at the end of your comment Ritchie doesn't make it factually true. I will offer however that if and when he does leave, we shouldn't be devaluing our best players and hold out for as much as we can get, FACT.

20 Jul 2019 12:51:22
@ritchie1 - that is the biggest load of tripe I have ever read on here! And that’s a FACT!
If you honestly believe clubs will be put off from buying him because of the occasional red card you are deluded. It’s all about his goal scoring record.

And you say others may have scored his chances . Who? Before Defoe came, nobody stepped up to the plate. Lafferty was and still is a waste of space. An imposter who has had 2 bites at the cherry and failed both times.

And yes we may not need him now because we have a 36 YEAR OLD who is doing the business, but will need replaced soon.
Who’s your preferred option?
Mine would be a 22 year old Colombian who can score 30 goals a season and only cost a £1 million . I wonder where we could find one of them?

20 Jul 2019 23:02:20
Boom! Letsgo, 100% agree.

19 Jul 2019 21:35:15
I thoughtthat Docherty was the best man on the park last night I hope Stevie G gives him some more game time.

Agree7 Disagree0

19 Jul 2019 21:34:43
As anyone will know on here, i'm a massive fan of scotty arfield. What a deserved standing ovation he got, when he came on against st. joseph's last night. Right away, you could see the quality this terrific midfielder,
brings to our play. He's a very clever runner and plays very intricate, defence splitting passes, through the lines with pinpoint accuracy.

Nobody within our squad will get his jersey, that's for sure. He plays in our starting 11 every week for me, with the possibility of giving him a breather from time to time, in the snaller games, if you can call them that. He's by way and far the best midfielder we have, at getting beyond our striker with his clever runs. Arfield is a class act and can play in any of our midfield positions.

Agree5 Disagree0

19 Jul 2019 21:40:16
Stop repeating yourself!

19 Jul 2019 22:21:07
Nothing to do with you what i post sharpshootersPOM. Get over it and i'll post what i feel like posting ok?

19 Jul 2019 22:37:22
arfield is quality SG agreed but by far and away our best midfielder.

can’t agree - kamara &’aribo will both prove to be as good am sure but i feel davis could also prove to be just be as crucial

his reading of the game touch vision ball retention under pressure are exceptional - he controls games for us and you barely notice - if i can be a bit harsh he’s like jack but a better footballer sorry guys just way i see it

he took a while to get back fit &’adapt to his new deep lying role but back end of season and in spells vs marseilles he was outstanding his speed of thought and ability to win ball back because he’s a yard quicker than anyone else ‘upstairs’ is frightening.

19 Jul 2019 22:51:44
I said arfield was the best midfielder at ibrox, at getting beyond our striker with his clever timing of his runs. that's what i said trev no7.

19 Jul 2019 22:53:39
You're trying to preach to the converted trev no7!I have always rated steven davis mate!

19 Jul 2019 23:42:01
Please add in commas Coop, makes it easier to read mate.

20 Jul 2019 12:44:08
Davis is still our best midfielder.

20 Jul 2019 13:22:46
Ok sorry.

19 Jul 2019 21:24:44
What a load a bull about morelos, candy is off has nothing to do with him people making it out as if he's the only player in the squad he talks to from what the pictures show in training he gets along with everyone.

Agree2 Disagree0

19 Jul 2019 20:54:09
David Bates been told by Hamburg he's free to leave and find a new club. No doubt there will be folk saying we should get him back. Thank god we now have all out centre halfs in the door before rumours start.

Agree2 Disagree0

19 Jul 2019 21:35:31
Just read that but it was also rubbishd as false news in the record. Happy season in full swing.

19 Jul 2019 19:36:10
West Ham thinking they can get Alfredo Morelos for 5m Ahh my sides FAF Yeah and the rest!
If there was such a bargain we would have to be entitled to a clause of at least 25% on his next move.

Agree2 Disagree0

19 Jul 2019 18:01:22
problem with Morelos? he is worth 20+ million but i think you have to reduce that by 50% because of his attitude and really stupid discipline, on top of course he doesn't speak or understand our lingo and refuses point blank to learn. So all in all, yes he is a good striker but he is going to cause us to have to settle for a much reduced fee if we decide we want to sell. One more season might see a different player but i can't help thinking the yellow and red cards will be out sooner than later.

Agree1 Disagree0

19 Jul 2019 19:17:06
Ritchie Morelos speaks passable English.

19 Jul 2019 19:44:58
Utter tosh he dosent want learn language am prity sure English is still the main language in the epl.

19 Jul 2019 20:39:26
Hey Ritchie how many languages can you speak. Not as easy as you think to learn and some find it easier than others. English is about the hardest to learn btw. i'm sure he knows enough to get by, you don't work everyday and stay in a country that speaks a language that you don't pick up at least some of the important phrases.

19 Jul 2019 21:34:06
Richie, Morelos had a discipline problem that's all you are correct about. Until he shows the same pish from last season then I will give him the benefit of the doubt. Like I said yesterday, Goldson received a yellow for raising his hands for no reasonable reason. Unfortunately it may be the ambitious players we have, the winning management, the club draped in history and trophies that drives that behaviour deep down. We need that drive and hunger but we need control 99% of the time. Perhaps that's what separate us from them and them from the very best.

19 Jul 2019 21:50:49
How can you say Morelos is worth 50% less because of his attitude? He scores goals that’s what matters.

19 Jul 2019 22:43:47
Did someone wee in your cornflakes Ritchie? Calm down .

20 Jul 2019 00:41:38
TJBB I speak 3, but i don't play football in a country far from my birth, i seldom have to use them any more since I am retired. your comment was very negative and missing the point completely. the majority of REAL stars learn the lingo of the country they play in, not because they have to but because they want to.

20 Jul 2019 03:26:28
Morelos is a PROPER goalscorer and is worth circa 20m regardless of his attitude He does what matters!

The boy will RIP it up wherever he goes!

Due to his retaliation and biting back he is ALWAYS going to be a target in Scotland IF he stays another year He needs to prove that he is bigger than that!

If and when he goes to the EPL or Bundesliga his attitude will simmer I'm quite confident in that being the case!

We also need to get a good percentage on moving on fees THIS BOY WILL GO PLACES Mark my words!
