I'm just wondering with the transfer window now open I'm really surprised that there has been no mention of Greg Stewart. I thought this deal would have been announced on the first day of the transfer window opening if infact we are signing him or was it all just paper talk as per.

Agree2 Disagree0

12 Jun 2019 13:05:31
Hope it was paper talk.

12 Jun 2019 13:57:05
If he comes can we give him a chance? We need a squad not just a starting11 if he does sign someone at the club with possibly a greater knowledge of scouting than us sees something we will never have a first 11 of world beaters looking back John Brown not the greatest player but what a difference he would make. this boy Stewart is on the back foot before he's pulled a top on.

12 Jun 2019 14:54:42
I got told his contract didn't run out till 30th june, so will be anounced after i'd imagine.

12 Jun 2019 16:37:54
Correct, Fergie, nothing can be finalised or announced until his contract is up. Some people on here are a bit hard of thinking.

12 Jun 2019 17:24:50
Daisy yore was looking back at your previous posts your very negative person and appear to enjoy correcting other fans posts without adding any meaningful content yourself.

12 Jun 2019 17:27:56
What you on about? Players get announced before their contract is up all the time. Jordon Jones was announced in January or something amd Hastie 2 month ago. So if anybody is hard of think. am not pointing any elbows!

12 Jun 2019 20:10:07
Jones was announced he'd signed a precontract, but he's not officially signed until his contract with Killie runs out
Same with Hastie. It's why the Well fans booed him.

12 Jun 2019 20:18:43
To be fair guys hastie and jones had signed pre contracts, anyway chill out think stewart will be announced after the 30th no great shakes imo but we shall see.

12 Jun 2019 21:18:24
Stewart is a massive bluenose and is definitely signing, he will have been told he’s not a guaranteed starter and will have to prove he deserves a jersey. As soon as he pulls on that top he deserves nothing but the fans full backing. The negativity on here towards some of our players is brutal. Get behind the team or bite your tongue and take your negativity somewhere else.

13 Jun 2019 01:03:23
he is contracted till the 30th. then .

13 Jun 2019 01:07:50
Cheers fergie1981

Ibrox found i think the problem with regards to Greg S signing is that SG has stated that he was want to add quality rather than quantity. Imo most fans see GS as in the quantity bracket.
However he was free and has shown that he can play in this league at a good level. So could prove to be a shrewd piece of business. Time will tell if he does sign. In SG we trust.

I'm also looking for you guys thoughts on Dorrans. Was reading today that he maybe leaving our club.
This one I think could come back to bite us and we may regret letting him go as a full fit Dorrans would definitely push Arfield for that number 10 role. Yes I get his injury record is shocking but he is fit now and with a good pre season could be an asset.

The other option would be a loan for 6 months to prove his fitness and build up match sharpness.
Thoughts guys n girls

13 Jun 2019 03:01:04
its hard to say who is better, but i would like younger guys playing in the team like Rossiter and Docherty.

13 Jun 2019 08:52:17
Feel for dorrans no doubt he was a player but we never saw it due to injury think that ship has sailed now.

13 Jun 2019 14:25:17
I agree IF, I really feel for Dorrans as I believe he could have been very good for us. Greg Stewart definitely has something and will shine in a good team. Rossiter and Docherty, and even McCrorie I feel sorry for as game time will be limited. And what about Murphy?
Great time to be a bear just now. I can feel it i'm my water that we are going to you know what next season!

12 Jun 2019 11:31:06
Maybe its me, maybe I just don't get it really. But this anti scotland thing is going over my head. Name the rangers players that could walk into the scotland team? Clarke is a poor manager which I have said before, McLeish is a far better manager, its the players that are poor, they don't turn up. Look at N. I. players playing for a team they love, I don't see it with scotland. But Clarke is now the manager and as much as I don't rate him I will still be behind the team, but guys come on, do you honestly think the SFA and scotland backroom staff have some secret agenda to stop rangers playing for the national team? Do you believe we landed on the moon? A manager is not going to risk his job by 'hating' a club that much that he doesn't pick there players. The 'SFA' aren't going to force us to not win anything. We didn't win anything, that's nothing to do with SFA, that's players and managers. Just seems like some of you are looking for someone/ thing to blame.
Yes Clarke spoke about the abuse he received from US. but not much about the boyd thing, but boyd did speak about it. You don't know if boyd told him not to mention it and forget it. Its conjecture.

Agree3 Disagree0

12 Jun 2019 12:12:07
Sorry you lost me at saying Big Eck is the better of the two managers. Respect for Big Eck but he is well past it.

12 Jun 2019 18:59:12
Snell, he is 4 years older than Clarke and is not required to play football anymore. For the life of me I can't get my head roind why Clarke would be a better appointment. The group of players is probably the poorest for a long time. If you thought results were bad under Eck just wait and see what is in store for you under the jakey Clarke. Batten down the hatches lol.

12 Jun 2019 20:24:34
Think Clarke is a doughnut (putting it very mildly) but he did do some job at Killie and I will happily admit that.

No need to batten down anything here though Seeker mate totally apathetic to the Scotland team! Not actively hoping they lose but not interested in watching either ?.

13 Jun 2019 01:01:30
It’s not the fact there are no rangers players that pissed me off, it’s the fact he called up 4 goalkeepers for 2 games, and also called up players like Brophy, Morgan, mulgrew Devlin and mcnulty, players that should be no where near the squad.

13 Jun 2019 01:06:05
Stevie Clarke has won nothing as a manager. Yes he did well at killie but he hasn't suddenly made Scotland a better side. Eck maybe is past it now but his managerial career is better than Clarkes.

13 Jun 2019 14:28:31
I'm the same Snell. Not really bothered one way or another about Scotland. It's all about the Rangers for me.

12 Jun 2019 08:59:14
Not a rumour but I was well impressed with the Finnish left back last night. Know nothing about him, couldn't hear pub TV;
he may cost millions or be 40 years old everyone else may know him but he had a good game last night.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Jun 2019 11:13:46
Jere Uronen, and plays for Genk. 24 I think and out of our league currently.
yep a very decent lb.

12 Jun 2019 13:00:56
wouldn't say any Genk player would be out our league. In fact, if he got a move to us he would get recognized quicker by big clubs rather than Genk. Plus the fact, we are a massive club compared to Genk.

12 Jun 2019 18:12:17
origi benteke de bruyne castagne and courtouis all came through at Genk

they are a club who develop and produce some cracking players

they would not ‘get recognised quicker at us’ simply because with this quality of player coming through their ranks they are already very well scouted.

13 Jun 2019 01:05:50
The Belgium league is a lot stronger than the spl! We are a bigger club than most clubs in the English premier league we stil couldn’t compete with any of them financially!

12 Jun 2019 00:05:15
Just after watching a first part, half hour interview with our former left winger neil mccann, on RTV in our trophy room today.
Really worth listening to fellow bears, as the wee man talks superbly. You can hear in his voice how fond and proud he is, of his time as a rangers player. He speaks very confidently about how good a team rangers were, when he was there. I certainly will never forget us beating them to win the league at the breezeblock boulevard in 1999,to win the league at celtic park.

I had a ticket for that game and we destroyed them 3-0, with mccann playing through the middle that day and scoring a double. Big jorg albertz scored the other with a penalty. It was the first time in our history that we actually won the league at celtic park. Mccann is part of history and etched in that special occasion for ever. Wee neily was a terrific winger for rangers and in general. Always had a helluva lot of time for mccann and met him on a good few occasions. Also had the pleasure of speaking to his late dad eddie, outside the bill struth main stand. He was so proud that his son played for rangers.

Agree12 Disagree0

12 Jun 2019 09:35:43
Coop, mentioned on here before, you're right, his dad Eddie was a cracking we guy and so proud of Neil, as was his mum, Mary. A great signing at a great time for the club.

12 Jun 2019 09:53:50
Great plsyer and just plain and simply a nice guy. Wish he was playing nowadays.

12 Jun 2019 12:13:06
Had the pleasure of dealing with him on occasion in a previous job. A nicer, more down to earth guy you could not hope to meet.

11 Jun 2019 21:49:05
Laudrup1 I think your being a bit paranoid but having said that - there is no point in cheering them on as there not very good - we are way behind the other UK nations - time will tell if SC will play Rangers players - I don’t believe he is anti Rangers and think he will play Rangers players if they are good enough . In the meanwhile I’m supporting NI for obvious reasons lol.

Agree2 Disagree0

12 Jun 2019 01:42:32
You don’t believe he’s anti-rangers?! What? Kris Boyd gets hit by a coin and has to listen to sectarian songs against him, Clark says nothing. Clarke has songs sung at him and he’s nearly crying in the post match interview basically saying how much he hates rangers. He won’t play any gets players, he might put one in the squad just to try to say he isn’t against us.

12 Jun 2019 07:03:13
Everyone is free to support whom ever they want. I love Scotland as much as Rangers and would love to see the Scotland team filled with quality gers players. I personally dislike the anti SFA/ Scotland agenda that many of our fans have, regardless of the reasons, I think its beneath us but we're all free to our own opinions.

12 Jun 2019 09:55:10
Couldn't care less about Scotland or their jakey manager.

12 Jun 2019 10:05:49
I'm a proud scot I don't want to see the national team get beaten I'm just not that bothered. Until certain so called Scotland supporters stop booing Rangers players I won't be making any attempt to follow them and I used to. As I said proud scot but fiercely loyal to Glasgow Rangers. W. A. T. P.

11 Jun 2019 21:24:30
Breaks my heart, but i am glad scotland are getting beat, love my country and used to love the national team, they are so anti Rangers, the SFA can't help putting the boot into my club. Hate posting this, but am really annoyed by it. Used to love cheering on scotland, but at the moment, i don't care. Am i wrong? What do you think Bears.

Agree6 Disagree0

11 Jun 2019 21:37:40
Yeah your wrong but I guess you know you are with the majority of your wording, don’t worry you’ll get loads of support on here from the anti-Scottish rubbish which is posted on here every international break. I’m Scottish by choice and British by rule and I’ll support Scotland and Rangers until my last breath!

11 Jun 2019 21:49:38
Sadly, I'm in total agreement. At my age (67) I never thought I would be so disinterested in my national team and the last thing I want for them is success. It's what the SFA deserve from me. Rangers first and always.

11 Jun 2019 21:51:53
Laudrup no1, I am like you, I never missed an international in the past, but what really has killed our international team is the lack of home grown talent being given a chance, we settle for mediocre players from lower level English football. That is why I want to see players that Rangers purchase in Scotland get the chance to show what they can do at Ibrox, not at any other Club on loan, and as such they may develop into International players far quicker, look at the player Kamara has developed into already for Finland, just one example.

11 Jun 2019 21:56:13
Good post and I agree 100%.

11 Jun 2019 21:56:57
I don't know what to feel mostly annoyed at the anti rangers thing they have got going on. I used to love going to pub with my pals for a few pints and watching Scotland now I not even bothered but still love my country.

11 Jun 2019 22:22:52
can't agree, want Scotland, my home nation, to do well.

11 Jun 2019 23:00:30
That's not entirely true though is it? Are you forgetting old firm last season where Morelos should of been sent off but brother Beaton prevailed?

Or how about SFA postponing league restructure so that it was 3rd division you's dropped down to as result of liquidation and not out SPFL set up altogether?

11 Jun 2019 23:11:00
You are wrong. in my opinion anyway. . your country is your country and you should never want them to get beat. The pride should never leave you and win lose or draw being Scottish is something special and our support is loved everywhere. Your not supporting the SFA it’s the team and what they represent.

11 Jun 2019 23:23:23
I was never the biggest Scotland fan. Sure I would want them to do well but the day Ryan Jack got booed was enough for me. Too political and that’s why Scotland will never get better.

12 Jun 2019 00:19:09
I’’ll say this . I am sure last year we were linked with a possible loan deal with Ollie Burke . praise the lord that never happened.

12 Jun 2019 00:07:55
Probably a bit extreme wanting them to lose but it is easy to be indifferent to the team when they are such garbage.

Another dimension is that the nationalist movement have stolen my country from me. You are either for them or you are not a real Scot.

Their constant moaning and manoeuvring for power and ultimately independence, has caused me to feel more British than Scots.

12 Jun 2019 09:06:38
@cool - you've hit the nail on the head. The SNP are tearing the Country apart. Which is now filtering down to the national team. Even online, the venom displayed against anyone who disagrees with their policies is OTT. They are talking about boycotting Tunnocks because he accepted a knighthood!
Back to football - is any Rangers player worthy of a call up?

12 Jun 2019 09:58:16
You've hit the nail right on the head coolatballet. Couldn't agree more and it is exactly the way I feel too.

12 Jun 2019 19:04:10
And anybody who thinks everybody loves the tranny army I can assure you that's not the case. Especially when they are seen exposing themselves, scratching their arses with hat feathers and pissing in front gardens.

12 Jun 2019 22:04:57
Thought this was a rangers forum? Talking about the Scottish National team, fair enough its football. What has politics got to do with anything?

11 Jun 2019 19:24:51
Hi Bears,

Was just wondering if anybody else had a top 5 to beat mine. don't limit it to sport, the more obscure the better, I will kick it off

Greatest male athletes of all time:

1. Usain Bolt
2. Sebastian Coe
3. Daley Thomson
4. Jacky Mcnamara
5. Carl Lewis.

Agree1 Disagree0

11 Jun 2019 19:50:17
Haha TJBB I can't argue with number 4.

11 Jun 2019 20:02:28
You could add Roger Bannister, Said Aoiuta, Haïle Gebresellassie, Michael Johnson, Michael Phelps, Elias Kipchoge, Kevin Kyle.

11 Jun 2019 20:03:45
Literally could not care less ?. although michael johnson would definitely be on the list.

11 Jun 2019 20:19:14
The great Joe Calzaghe. Greatest british boxer of all time!

11 Jun 2019 20:25:52

12 Jun 2019 00:06:19
Scott Broon.

12 Jun 2019 00:08:06
Think Seb Coe was stuck up compared to Steve Ovett, loved it when Steve beat him, the only one of your top five that would get anywhere near the top ten greatest athletes ever is Carl Lewis.

will go along with most of Ibrox4Me selection for a top ten, maybe Lasse Viren, Kip Keino and about a dozen Kenyan and Ethiopians, whose names I can't remember.

12 Jun 2019 19:29:06
My top 5 male athletes -

2.Super Ally
3.Fatima Whitbread

13 Jun 2019 09:17:02
Fanny schmeller has got to be in there .

11 Jun 2019 16:56:45
Wonder who our Club Captain will be next season?

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Jun 2019 17:22:08
Tav for me but with the likes of Davis, Arfield and McGregor we're starting to have captains all over the park.

11 Jun 2019 18:02:21
Will be Tav. Goldson possibly also.

11 Jun 2019 18:04:44
James tavernier will be our captain unless he's soldiers for a big transfer fee. Simple as that.

11 Jun 2019 18:19:38
Tav might be off and McGregor is not now captain material after his red card performances.

Jack could also be in the frame.

11 Jun 2019 18:31:38
Davis will motivate and inspire the young players.

11 Jun 2019 23:25:04
Id give it to Arfield.

11 Jun 2019 23:57:34
Arfield or Davis.

11 Jun 2019 15:12:52
Seeing quite a lot of comments about us using the loan market and us "not developing our youth". At the end of the day when it comes down to picking your team, you want the best 11 players you can get, if that's made up of a couple of loan players, I couldn't care less as long as we get the 3 points. I'm sure derby had a good few loan players this season, doubt they will be complaining. I really don't see the problem with sending younger players who are not ready out on loan, help them become ready and in the meantime use loan signings to fill the gap.

Would also just say, I don't think there's much of a difference between the players we are being linked with and those the manky mob are. perhaps a sign of how much we have closed the gap, or how much their tightness will be their downfall.

Agree4 Disagree0

11 Jun 2019 12:30:25
At the beginning of last season Kent was not much better than Middleton by January he was a stand out player for us. I have never seen Ojoe kick a ball Maybe Ed001 can enlighten us.
I've always said young loanees must be much better than we already have or we are not going to improve our own youngsters. If our youth team players improve this year we should have 3 or 4 pushing for first team playing time by the end of the season.

{Ed001's Note - he has had a lot of back problems, so I have not seen a lot of him for a while, but he was very quick but lacked end product when I saw him.}

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Jun 2019 15:18:53
Kent was not a stand out, he has had 2 great games against them and the rest was average that’s a fact not an opinion you just need to look at his stats I don’t understand all the we must get him back carry on to be honest.

11 Jun 2019 16:14:29
Totally disagree with you GANNET10.
I can assure you ryan kent had a helluva lot of good games, outwith the celtic games. By the way he had 3 good games against them, not two. that's a fact pal.

11 Jun 2019 16:15:04
Gannet10 Well said Stated that a few weeks back, .

11 Jun 2019 16:18:09
Ed- sounds like Jordan Jones, very quick but no end product. that's not my assessment, i'm from Kilmarnock and that's the talk from my Killie mates.

11 Jun 2019 18:05:33
Kent is a stand out in our team and in our league. He battered celtic in both games at ibrox and the 2nd meeting at celtic park. Kent will be the best bit of business we will do this summer if we get him again.

11 Jun 2019 21:34:48
SGL he never stood out in any other game other than the two Celtic games and I didn’t expect you to agree with me.
He is far too inconsistent and the majority of fans that want him back is because of those two games and for what he done to SB.

He is nowhere near as good as some rangers fans make him out to be.
If he does come back I hope he proves me wrong this season.

12 Jun 2019 00:03:27
Kent a standout? in a full season on loan Kent had played 27 games in the league, scoring 6 and assisting 4, whereas in the 6 months Jamie Murphy was on loan before his move was made permanent he scored 4 and assisted 7 in 16 games, Kent played nearly double the amount of games and has one less goal contribution than Murphy did?but Ryan Kent is a standout.

12 Jun 2019 00:04:51
I completely agree that Kent is nothing special at all, the biggest bit of business for us this season will be by a country mile getting Jamie Murphy fit and back in the team.

12 Jun 2019 08:22:38
Guys Ryan Kent has ability, If Rangers were to buy him 3 Million max, Only my opinion .

12 Jun 2019 09:25:26
Guys I really like Kent but I am struggling to explain the stats for goals/ assists for someone so highly regarded .
