Use our rumours form to send us rangers transfer rumours.

(single word yields best result)

Just a response to Ferguson's article in the DR.

Cummings over Naismith all day long.

Nothing to do with the past, Cummings is sharper/ all round better player at this moment in time. Plus, if we do buy him, will have much more sell on value.

BF reckons it'll be ". the one we regret as the one we let get away"

Think he's just blowing a friends trumpet if i'm honest. Thoughts, is BF right?

Agree11 Disagree1

19 Jan 2018 08:08:06
read the article, he is making naismith out to be a saint, he saw right through green yeah right, what he can see into the future could he, we helped him through two severe ligament damages he done the dirt on us as did others, no loyalty to anything but the buck, he will be out injured more than he plays for hearts, with the guff ferguson writes its hard to believe in anything he says anymore

19 Jan 2018 08:36:30
Even taking out the loyalty issue on Naismith this is a guy that has played hardly any football in about a year.
He has featured I believe off the bench just 3 times for Norwich since August.
His career has been blighted by injury he is the wrong side of 30.
In contrast Cummings is 22 never had a serious 8njury problem is a prolific scorer he has a sell on value and many years in front of him.
Loved aBarry as a player and Captain, I just wish he would think before he speaks about this club/ institution we love, our belies do not need any encouragement to attack us and all our decisions do not give hem succor.

19 Jan 2018 08:51:33
As usual Ferguson cherry picks what he says and conviently forgets to mention the press conference in which Naismith declared the club dead and that he had no loyalty to the new club. He knew full well how the support felt about that. I defy anyone to say they really knew what was going on at the club at the time and it was only much later that it all came out. Ferguson was a great player and captain for us however his articles are poor and ill thought out

19 Jan 2018 09:02:45
My prediction about Naismith he'll play great in first few games then his form will decline then he'll be forgotten by may either injured or some other excuse the guy just wanted to come home to Scotland only wanted rangers for a big buck pension he will be in the studio with commons and his old pal kris Boyd more than on the pitch guaranteed still think he's a good addition for hearts though maybe be 5 or 6 when they play Celtic next lol

19 Jan 2018 09:36:20
Not defending Ferguson, just making a point that Ferguson is now writing for rags and praising Rangers does not sell papers in Scotland, slating Rangers does, as that's what everybody bar Rangers fans wants to read.

Bad Rangers news is good news to the rags.

I love Fergie but this is the reality of becoming a 'journalist' for papers like the DR and the sun.

For example, Alex Rae, he will stand up for the club almost every time, he isn't writing for any papers, just appears on radio.

19 Jan 2018 10:51:35
Well said bear mode that is an excellent post
Do not buy those papers as they are a so anti Rangers it is becoming criminal
As the song says No One Likes Us We don't Care.
Do you know what the problem is?
It is we are on the way back and they are all starting to panic that it will not be long untill we are back at our rightful place at the top of Scottish football.
What lies would they be able to print then.
Come on the Teddy Bears

19 Jan 2018 15:07:47
another ex player bad mouthing like Boyd sour grapes because he didn't get a coaching role we don't need to go for old players Cummings a better option.

Daily News Round Up 19th January 2018

{Ed's Note - we have posted a new article entitled, Daily News Round Up 19th January 2018

Agree0 Disagree1

18 Jan 2018 21:29:40
Very encouraged by what’s going on in this window. Very shrewd work going on by murty and Allen. Improving on what we have at very little cost with player that know what it’s all about. Then go again in the summer with a bit of cash to buy 2 or 3 quality players instead of giving a rookie Mexican pretender 8 million n letting him buy his pals players. Looks like Docherty will sign so with that pool in midfield I see murty going for an old 4-4-2 . I would
Tav Martin Wilson john
Murphy jack Doherty Windass
Morelos Cummings.

Seroius competition in the middle of the park. Only worry with the 2 up top is they will both shoot when there’s a pass on for a tap in. Let’s just hope the burst the net
Anyway that’s just my thoughts as it stands (or nearly stands ie Docherty) but looking brighter for the 2nd half of the season. No surrender

Agree3 Disagree7

18 Jan 2018 22:11:56
Pedro is Portuguese 😱OMFG

18 Jan 2018 22:37:56
Jack shouldn't get in the starting 11 Imo. don't get all the hype about him.

18 Jan 2018 23:18:31
Goss mcrorie and dozza midfield 3 when all fit

18 Jan 2018 23:33:30
Tavernier. Martin Wilson. John
Cadias jack/ mcrorie docherty Murphy
Cummings morelos

19 Jan 2018 00:44:35
I never want to see Windass on the left wing ever again!

19 Jan 2018 04:34:58
You can’t be seriously putting Wilson in front of Alves, short memories. Wilson has only had 3-4 good games this season and single handily sold about 8 goals. Alves and Martin all day long with McCrorie sitting in front. Don’t talk about speed as Big davie weir had no speed at all, plus Martin isn’t slow.

19 Jan 2018 07:25:28
Alves can jog on

19 Jan 2018 11:24:31
Wilson all day everyday

19 Jan 2018 15:03:04
i like that team huistra

i think goss might play over jack tho given RJs injury and suspension issues

I wld also like to see dorrans back fit and in that team but i worry his injury may be worse than expected hence glut gf midfielders we’re attracting

19 Jan 2018 15:04:26
I don't think we’ll play a set formation every week. he’ll change it accordingly depending on the opponent. for instance his nxt 2 games will be totally different set ups because of who they are (fraserburgh&sheep)

19 Jan 2018 15:09:50
only problem they will shoot when there's a pass on! 😂😂😂

18 Jan 2018 19:46:16
I bet the Portuguese manager is gutted danny Wilson and David bates are not Portuguese becouse he would take the both to the World Cup along with Pepe exc because they are both better than Alves so they would definitely go if he can lol absolutely ridiculous Alves is a much higher quality to them two yet he seems to get all the stick a few good games and people seem to forget how terrible Wilson has been over the past few years and bates is not that great either really is he.

Agree8 Disagree7

18 Jan 2018 20:35:27
There's a decent player in Wilson, not so sure about bates, he could become a master.
Am sure having alves at the club has improved all the defenders. He's been unlucky with injuries. A fully fit alves is the best centre half in Scotland.

18 Jan 2018 21:41:59
Pretty cheeky about young Bates
Super prospect
Hopefully Alves has played his last game
Not interested

18 Jan 2018 21:58:41
You have to remember Bates is still a young guy and he didn't get man of the match against them for nothing!

18 Jan 2018 22:10:38
If you’re buying a player south of the boarder then just add another 0 so a £500k player in the SPL is worth £5M in the EPL it seems. Don’t dare expect them to pay that outside of there little corner of the market, they just want to keep all that cash sloshing about down there 😡

18 Jan 2018 22:16:13
Bates has potential but still a long way to go. Wilson been better lately and really hope he lives up to expectations but if Alves is fit he starts for me. Even at his age he’s still in the Portuguese squad . His experience can only be good for our young players come on lads

18 Jan 2018 23:35:14
Bates had a good game against them but over all he is not that good seems like people on hear love to mother the shite out of these young players we had all this with dodoo about he has something special give him time to learn his trade he is 23 that is not young! Bates is 21 Alves at 23 was in Porto first team then look in the premiership John stones is only 23 harry winks 21 ldeli alli look at what there doing. We're is the cut off between young and no longer young? Seems like to me some rangers fans are totally obsessed with young talent and call them young and give that young boy a game nonsense untill there like mid 20s just hopeful there going to become a star because they did a few nice touches in a game every so often. Put it this way if bates was foreign and signed from some team in Europe and not raith but played excactly the same over the last two years everyone would be saying get that bates out he is shocking!

19 Jan 2018 02:04:20
Bates MOTM performances against them and the sheep at their midden mind.

Yes he will have his bad games as he’s still learning, just like Mcrorie has had his bad games vs Hamilton at home and Killie away.

Bates and Mcrorie are prospects, let’s not ruin them by being negative and slating them everytime they have a poor game.

Bates was the best thing since sliced bread after he old firm game and our ever-fickle ‘fans’ have turned on him already because he had a bad game in a friendly in the US. No words for folk like that.

19 Jan 2018 11:48:08
21 very young for a cu i think give him the rest of this season and he will be the best we have had in years as long as he ha s decent players beside him is paved, Martin

19 Jan 2018 15:05:09
Bates still got a lot to learn but u can just see by the way he plays, he wants to be here unlike the bang average Alves.

18 Jan 2018 18:45:02
Leeds just sign a player from Middlesbrough for 4.5mill who hasn’t played since dec 2nd yet offer 500k for windass. the English clubs think they can offer peanuts just because the league is less attractive.

Agree8 Disagree1

18 Jan 2018 21:17:44
Maybe he was just injured tho

18 Jan 2018 21:53:00
Few clubs in Scotland saying that about us though

19 Jan 2018 07:51:36
Keep hearing about 'market value's
1 there has to be a market
2 nobody else bidding over 100k in Scotland
So why is when we bid over half a million for a player there's an outcry.?

19 Jan 2018 11:49:32
Aye they say that about us and then we'll for less to other teams down south of in this league. But **** them

18 Jan 2018 17:41:24
After I pretty much wrote rossiter off, turns out he is back in training. Fingers crossed he comes through it this time.

Agree8 Disagree4

18 Jan 2018 17:53:08
Here's hoping that he is fit now but will need game time to get match fit so as I said earlier in the week the best thing for him and Rangers would be to get him out on a development loan to a SPL team for match fitness plus to see if he can cut it and stay fit

18 Jan 2018 18:06:49
There has been a few false dawns with Rossiter and I truly hope he can get fit and start playing but I think there is something underlying that'll prevent him from playing consistently and we should get the boy off the payroll ASAP.

18 Jan 2018 18:10:55
He will be fit for about a week, then injured again no doubt.

18 Jan 2018 18:45:49
I hope he gets fit and back playing as he is by far the best DM we have.

18 Jan 2018 18:48:43
I always had high hopes for Rossiter, when we signed him he was captain of England U19’s at a tournament I remember. The way I see it is he has 5 months to stay fit, get in the team and start delivering performances. He would be like a £3m signing. Jury is out though and if he fails on any of the 3 then we have to get rid in the summer

18 Jan 2018 20:11:19
Blue nose what do you base that statement on? His performances at an under 21 tournament? From what I've seen of him playimg for us so far there was a good young player with potential that's it.

18 Jan 2018 20:12:37
Personally I'm delighted to see the boy back in training. He's a young lad with massive potential. Let's not be hasty in getting rid of him

18 Jan 2018 20:17:25
Really think he will never get and stay fit. Just one of these players who will always be injured. Footballers these days seem to think you should be 100 percent before you can play. Nonsense. Butchers, browns, Fergusons play.

18 Jan 2018 20:44:58
To injury prone, needs to go lads. need to think nowadays where we could put his wages, it could be another 12 months before we could even think about getting any money for him if we sell never mind keep him injury free.

18 Jan 2018 22:53:50
You can't judge a players ability on a handful of games. IF only he could stay fit.

19 Jan 2018 08:45:08
I think Rossiter needs to be given a chance he's young if you look at Stevn Gerrard he had the same type of problem missed a lot of games when he was young and still filling out then look what happened he was one of the best midfielders of his generation down south he was U19 captain so they had hopes for him so I'd stick with him

19 Jan 2018 09:12:27
Ross McCrorie has made that DM position his own. Would take McCrorie over Rossiter all day long.

19 Jan 2018 11:52:24
A fit crossover would be the cherry on top of a pretty good january

19 Jan 2018 15:01:33
I think this has got to be his last chance and if he breaks down again its time to cut our losses. i really feel for the boy though

18 Jan 2018 15:51:56
Think our next 2 January signings should be Wilson and Bates on new contracts as both have performed well in our last few games since Murty took over.

Agree5 Disagree4

18 Jan 2018 16:19:47
Murty said they were discussing a new contract with wilson.

18 Jan 2018 17:01:21
Bates has been good but he showed in Florida cup some bad touches and put us under pressure at times. Hopefully time will tell with older heads like Alves and Martin he can only learn.

18 Jan 2018 17:32:42
I agree about Bates showing some bad touches in cup but he will only be a squad player for the next couple of years but will improve with time which he has on his side

18 Jan 2018 19:34:08
Think bates should go out on loan play week in week out until end of season he is doing well but is still a little raw and with Martin Alves Wilson and cardoso we have cover think it will do him good.

19 Jan 2018 13:48:57
He is 21 not 18 he should be realistically be breaking through just now or be sent on loan to develop in English championship somewhere or league 1

18 Jan 2018 15:22:20
I think windass is 1.5 mill player if we don't get that and 10 or 15 percent sell on then I think the bord haven't changed they say 1 thing then **** us over by doing another

Agree5 Disagree3

18 Jan 2018
New image uploaded to the
Rangers Player Sightings page entitled, Shut them all up

Agree1 Disagree3

18 Jan 2018 15:48:10
What player?

18 Jan 2018 15:02:49
I would rather docherty as in 2 or 3 years we have a potential to make real money ie 2/ 3 mill which is much needed brining in another loan the squad will never improve over time. Just a thought guys about Hartlepool they need 200k to avoid administration could we not get 2 or 3 players with sum potential to improve our squad?

Agree1 Disagree5

18 Jan 2018 15:16:14
they are 17th in the national league so i'm going to take a wild guess and say no. their players will be guff

18 Jan 2018 15:26:40
You do know hartlepool are non league.

18 Jan 2018 15:57:42
have they got any buddy
