Just noticed Daisy Yore you made a comment at me regarding my thoughts on Shankland. I said if its the correct price we should go for him, then you tried to compare us getting him to replacing laudrup for templeton. Sorry but first morelos is nowhere near the player laudrup was and shankland is a far better player than templeton. If we can get shankland for £500,00 I think rangers would be 'absurd' not to get him. Can I remind you morelos came from the finish league a far far poorer league that ours. Strangely enough I do watch and I watched him when they played alloa and he looked far better than the players around him.

Finty they r quoting two million for Shankland, not worth your 500k to sit in stand,
We have Alf, Defoe Stewart and Murphy all miles better than Shankland.

08 Oct 2019 14:02:27
Are you Shankland's agent? Why would we pay half a million, plus wages for somebody to sit in the stand, then inevitably leave for a nominal fee? We wouldn't do it and comaprisons with players from past eras of the club are irrelevent to the current status of the team.

08 Oct 2019 17:04:23
Not sure where the evidence is that shankland is better than templeton.

08 Oct 2019 20:57:26
Shankland is a good player but not good enough for us now.

08 Oct 2019 21:12:06
i really can't understand the obsession with signing Shankland. the boy will never be our first pick. if and when morelos leaves we will go for better than shankland so we should sign someone to sit in the stands in the meantime to rot away, not good for us nor for him.

if he isn't played he won't increase in value, if he doesn't increase in value and be a good sell on then why take him in the first place. or are we back to him being a diehard rangers supporter allegedly.

09 Oct 2019 16:20:30
This thread will come back to haunt us because he’s not long for Dundee United, so he’ll either go to England and bang them in or worse, end up at Celtic. He’s exactly the kind of low cost punt we should be taking. Celtic have made some great ones over the last few years with Armstrong, Christie etc costing buttons, but also let the likes of McGinn and Robertson get away from them. If we could get Shankland for £1m it’s a no brainer for me.

09 Oct 2019 17:30:14
We could have got him for free in summer and didn't so we eont buy him now for a million.

08 Oct 2019 12:26:53
Well rangers top of the league start of october. I firmly believe by december if we keep up this form we could do what liverpool are doing and just keep winning every league game. i can honestly seeing us winning every game up to and including celtic on the 29th of december.

Go to Porkheid, press and attack like our normal game and we will pump them👌🇬🇧.

09 Oct 2019 22:20:38
Let's not get too far ahead of ourselves. Yes its fantastic that we are top, but we've been down this road before. Hopefully Gerrard can keep the players grounded. Still a long way to go. More of the same would good though.

08 Oct 2019 11:04:22
Guys looking for your thoughts re some of our loan players, does anyone disagree and still think any of these players still have a chance. Imo I think that Middleton, Rossiter, Ruddens, will get no where near our first team in the future. I also think that Docherty and McCrorie are seriously going to struggle.

Imo I just think that we have moved on as a club and are looking for a better standard of player than any of the above.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Oct 2019 11:17:07
middleton is still just a young lad. The rest? Who knows.

08 Oct 2019 11:22:40
Rossiter himself seems to have written off his Rangers career Docherty and McCrorie I’m sure will have a future If they bide their time, Middleton not sure Rudden i'd agree with you Our one loan deal I can’t get head round is Andy King why did we bother?

08 Oct 2019 11:32:48
I think McRorie, Middleton and Docherty should be given a chance.

08 Oct 2019 12:53:16
I agree with Blue89, I feel the above 3 have something to offer, I'm actually disappointed that Docherty has not been given much game time since his return from Shrewsbury. I also want to see Defoe, and McGregor extending their contracts, and, young Robbie McCrorie becoming our back up keeper next season, I thinks Fod's is a good goalkeeper and has to move on for game time.

08 Oct 2019 13:05:05
Rossiter very unlucky, I wish lad all the best for the future.

08 Oct 2019 13:34:46
I tend to agree re rossiter not getting a renewed contract.
Also out of contract June 2020, firth, foderingham, Alnwick, Herrera and Holt, do not renew contracts. Good savings
Mcgregor, Davis, Defoe renew contracts
Halliday, probably move on
Flanagan, great cover both full back position, so I’d renew.
Thoughts guys.

08 Oct 2019 14:03:30
Middleton, McCrorie and Docherty will be back. Whether they have a future beyond that is uncertain.

08 Oct 2019 16:04:59
Middleton will be kept. as will McCrories (both) Alnwick and Fods both away. Firth may get another contract depending. Halliday will probably get another too.
Davo, shagger and Flan will hopefully get resigned.
doc, well as much as i'd like him to make it, alas he looks like he may not. Rossiter won't be kept. A number of the kids will fill in some gaps.
I'd expect a couple of new faces too at higher level.
Otherwise it will depend on sales as to what we do

All imo of course.

08 Oct 2019 15:55:53
Who would any of them replace in the team? There are five in front of Docherty, Middleton can't get a start with Hivs, McCrorie is still a hopeful. Rossiter and Rudden are as good as away.

08 Oct 2019 17:06:42
I would renew Fod's I still see him as having a future post Mcgregor and is a valuable number 2.
Halliday I think probably deserves a new deal assuming he knows he won't play much, he won't be on massive wages anyway and is a good figure in the squad.

08 Oct 2019 17:39:09
middleton is 19, he's played in 5 games for hibs, starting 3, he's got 1 assist. We've got him signed up till 2023, so it looks very unlikely he's going to be leaving.

08 Oct 2019 18:06:44
I was only referring to players whose contracts r up 2020.

08 Oct 2019 21:06:01
McCrorie and Middleton should be given an opportunity to work their way back into the squad after loans. Also believe Docherty will get a run this season and equip himself well. If Halliday’s contract up in the summer think he will have opportunity to extend.

09 Oct 2019 16:22:16
Not convinced about any of the others, but McRorie is top class. Some of the performances he has put in for his age have been great.

08 Oct 2019 08:20:43
Just reading the interview with Dean Shiels in the Record about his time with us where he talks about Warburton's clockwork subs, and it just brings it home how far we have came when you think of the likes of Kevin Kyle, Sheils, Sandaza, Kiernan, Zelalem etc and that horrendous Blackthorn Cider kit - wow, those were dark days.

Agree6 Disagree0

08 Oct 2019 12:27:32
Totally agree mate, that was the point I was trying to make last week when a lot of us were overreacting to losing against young boys, we have came on leaps and bounds in just a few seasons 👍.

08 Oct 2019 14:04:04
Well said man. There's a lot of folk with very short memories on here.

08 Oct 2019 21:11:57
Kiernan, now there was a CH To be honest I thought the young boy Zelalam loaned from Arsenal was decent and an upgrade at the time.

Did anyone notice we paid off dodoo? Played for Bolton tonight.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Oct 2019 11:27:57
Deeceee yes in September, keep your finger on the pulse, also in case u missed it SG the manager.

07 Oct 2019 21:27:58
That's 3 times I have watched big Dykes of Livingston with only missing the last 10 of the Tim's match. He's a right good player and gave Katic, Halander and now big Julian the run around! He is something different and most of the replies will be he's not good enough? Going to keep an eye on this big guy and was very impressed 🇬🇧✊.

Agree7 Disagree0

07 Oct 2019 22:49:09
Hes a big handful I'll give him that he terrorised us twice. Apparently same yday.

08 Oct 2019 05:45:01
Yately1, i agree with you pal. We've got to remember its a 3rd choice striker we'd be looking to sign, to cover our main 2 of alfredo morelos and jermain defoe. I don't wear all this he's not good enough crap. If a striker is playing well in the scottish premiership, we have to take notice and we've all practically agreed, we do need cover and another striker.

Lyndon Dykes certainly gives you something much different, which we do need and he's playing well in the rigours of scottish football. Nobody ever knows how good anyone is going to be in a rangers jersey, until we actually see them playing for us. We are not going to be able to attract a top class striker to be 3rd choice for us. I just wish some would understand that.

08 Oct 2019 09:52:46
it would maybe need a change of style for us to utilise him tho, and that may not be in sg's mind. think he was a rugby league player, so no surprise he is big n bold.
our current main worry comes in january, as the vultures may be starting to bite, especially if alf continues in his ways. he will be pretty difficult to replace.

08 Oct 2019 10:52:29
Struth, if the title is still on Fredo will not be sold until summer ✌️🇬🇧.

08 Oct 2019 12:58:07
I said about Dykes after we played them, he's certainly a handful, and, I don't know about 3rd choice striker, it would be good to have all 3 strikers on the save wavelength and be able to rotate even more. Guys, after Sunday, do you think Edmundson deserves more game time, I thought he was excellent, and, he sure can pass the ball.

07 Oct 2019 20:35:38
A wee quick question guys, I was listening to the Hamilton manager, stating that the gulf between the old firm and the rest is the biggest he has every seen.
With that in mind, the likes of Hutton and Charlie Adam and many more of a similar quality cannot find a club.

Most of these guys I'm sure have made their money and would love another opportunity. I still think that some of these players still have a lot to offer our game on scotland.
Their experience could help develop the youth at a club and improve the standard of our game in general with the examples that they would set.

Thoughts guys?

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Oct 2019 21:17:20
Charlie Adam shouldn’t have been at Rangers the first time never mind when he is three stone heavier. I couldn’t even see him getting on the bench of our reserves. Hutton is done, he was my favourite right back and I always put him in my greatest 11 but his time has been and gone. Not sure if he’d consider some sort of coaching role but not as a player in my opinion. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿.

08 Oct 2019 00:11:50
Hutton over Jardine in a greatest 11?

08 Oct 2019 01:03:52
Guys the above players I'm not talking about playing for us. I'm thinking the likes of killy, Hamilton ect. Just think that there is a lot of good pros that could enhance our league for some of the lesser teams.

08 Oct 2019 08:06:55
Hutton over Gary Stevens and Sandy Jardine? 🇬🇧.

08 Oct 2019 09:43:43
not everyone is of the era to have witnessed jardine etc.

08 Oct 2019 10:20:04
SJ was in a different league to GS and AH. Jardine was world class. A Rolls Royce of a player.

08 Oct 2019 11:29:51
It’s all about rangers not interested in other teams.

08 Oct 2019 13:13:06
Did Gary Stevens not play in a World Cup semi final? 🇬🇧.

08 Oct 2019 17:12:12
Hutton was pish. We nearly tore Spurs hand off when we sold him for £9 million. It was an absolute goldmine for a very ordinary utility player, who had literally played 3 good games for us. Greatest 11 talk would say to me that you had never even seen him play for Rangers.

08 Oct 2019 21:13:03
have to agree with Souness, until his last season he was awful and we would have let him go for nothing. he pulled his socks up but imo no better than Tav is now and everyone on here is slating him.

a lot of fans have selective memory me thinks.

09 Oct 2019 16:26:07
Hutton no better than Tav? That’s the single stupidest comment on here of 2019 (and there’s been lots of competition) .

Hutton tore up the Champions League at times when he was here. Tav can’t handle the Europa League.

Hutton went for £9m what, 10 years ago? If you offered me £9m for Tav now I would first jump at it then second take your car keys off you, because what ever you were on you shouldn’t be driving.
