Also Vignal (Birmingham) and / or Bouma (Aston Villa) have been offered to the Gers. Defensive cover as both have been released by their respective clubs. FACT

Robertson, Goodwillie and Conway are also being looked at although only Robertson is interesting Gers at the moment due to Jelavic's impending transfer and the completion of Weiss.

Deal looking more and more likely to happen after the player refused to play against Villa , he has been omitted from the squad and Rapid President has been quoted saying in the "Kurier" The striker refuses to play against Aston Villa. Rapid-Präsident Edlinger: "Er hat hier nichts mehr verloren." Rapid-President Edlinger, "He has no business here anymore." A shift in the balance now in favour of the Bears , previously Edlinger had said he couldn't sell him before the Villa game as it would be unfair to the fans but info leaked showed Rapid presidential elections are due and Edlinger was trying to streak ahead with the votes by claiming to do all he could to keep their prized asset and fans favourite , when he was actually fighting a losing battle . If it wasn't for him this soap opera would have been done and dusted long ago .

At long last! Nikica Jelavic is set to join rangers! Rapid say he no longer wants to play for them and they have said he then has no place at their club. Source:Sky Sports news and also daily telegraph(good solid quotes) :D :D Vlamdimir Weiss also set to sign according to sky sports! :D

Rangers Rumours
According to the Rapid Vienna Website, (translated using Alta Vista)

Jelavic reported this morning and again refused to play in tonights match Vs Aston Villa.

The club have issued a statement to Sky Sports news saying the player is travelling to Glasgow today and will sign tonight.

Weiss spotted at Ibrox already, looks almost done.

Welcome did score a hat-trick but needs to be seen if he done enough to secure a deal, seems his touch isn't up to much although he has a keen eye for goal.

The rumours regarding Eagles and Hutton are nonsense, Eagles refused the offer and rangers would not increase on this.

Hutton's wages are just far too high, unless of course he is omitted from the 25 man squad, in which case they may just be happy for the bears to pay 50% to at least get some of his wages off the bill.

Also heard a rumour that Kenny Miller may be on his way out of the gers, he was offered a deal the same night as Lee McCulloch and refused. As a result, and as rangers can't afford to lose him for nothing, his agent was advised to find him a new club.(although I hope my source is wrong on this one)

Here comes the Hurricane!

If you go on rapids website and go on team squad thing they seem to have disowned Jelavic

19 Aug 2010 13:14:19

The weeks of wrangling transfer to Rapid striker Nikica Jelavic has taken a bad end. Nachdem der Wechsel des Kroaten zu den Glasgow Rangers vorerst geplatzt war, weigerte sich Jelavic am Donnerstag - wenige Stunden vor dem EL-Quali-Match gegen Aston Villa -, weiter für die Hütteldorfer zu spielen. After the change of the Croats to the Glasgow Rangers was first burst, Jelavic refused on Thursday - just hours before the EL-quality match against Aston Villa - to continue to play for the Hütteldorfer. Präsident Edlinger stimmte daraufhin dem Transfer zu und setzte Jelavic mit sofortiger Wirkung vor die Tür. . Edlinger President then agreed to the transfer and set Jelavic immediately before the door . .

Basiclly says jelavic is been allowed to go to Rangers as he stated that he no longer wants to play for Rapid

Rapid say jelavic can leave.he will not play tonight!source rapid website

19 Aug 2010 12:41:55
Jelavic is refusing to play for Rapid again and will be a Rangers player by tomorrow - it's on the Rapid website!

"egen aller Erwartungen erklärte heute Nikica Jelavic, nicht mehr für den SK Rapid spielen zu wollen. Es ist ein Schock für die gesamte Rapid-Familie. Rapid ist ein Verein mit viel Herz und Emotion. Jemand, der solch eine Aussage tätigt, hat hier nichts mehr verloren, weil er Fans und Mitglieder damit mitten ins Gesicht schlägt."

With my Standard grade German, i can confirm that they are pretty much saying he will no longer play for Rapid Vienna and they don't want somebody who doesn't want to play for the club anymore as it lets the whole club down.

He will be at Rangers, unless somebody out-bid us?

Robertson from Dundee Utd is being mentioned as a replacement.

Also heard we are looking at Stephen Craigan to replace big Boogie who is deffo off.Why OH Why, would Rangers buy 2 Cup tied players ?

19 Aug 2010 11:50:58

Another "Celtic Fan" chooses the blue side of glasgow , OH WE ARE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE OH WE ARE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE!

Bazarite will sign !
George Welcome will sign !

And as for the guy below about 2 loans and 2 short-loan. .
That rule only applies to the SPL , you can have 6 loans altogether , 4 long term , 2 short term

Only 4 can play in the team at one time tho . . expect gers to use up at least 3 of these loans

Bad news bears, heard from a well-placed source that Everton will be in for Davis before the window closes. Robertson from Dundee Utd is being mentioned as a replacement.

K then looks like i was wrong ! it appears that wiess has signed . . happy days this guy is a player fellow gers men . . very very good prospect and will walk straight into our team. If we can add Jelavic (if he plays tonight i don't think we will sign him) then we are sorted for keeping the tims in their place.

Just found out from a friend and who has also posted on followfollow( and is 100% genuine ) that he was told by someone very close to M.Bain, that both Weiss and Jelavic will be signed within 24 hours frm tonight. Take it or leave it but guy has o reason to lie

Re: mate i aint wanting to rain on your parade and believe me i hope ur right but i was told by Papac last week that Jel was to be unvieled as a player last thursday ! God knows what is gonna happen will be interesting to see if he plays tonight


19 Aug 2010 09:17:25
Weiss at Ibrox at present.

Eagles might be hovering over Murray Park again soon.
Hutton back on loan is a cert. This only leaves two short term loan deals of three months left as you can only have two long and two short term loans at any one time. Weiss and Hutton will both be long term .Probably why Arsenal winger has not been snapped up yet.Yorkie Lad

The ship steadies.
Jelavic should sign for us, but whether it's before or after Rapid take on Villa, who knows? I've watched him on youtube, and the boy can score.
He gets goals out of nothing, too. If he does well, playing against the lower teams in SPL and finishes with loads of goals,
he may get his dream move to the EPL.

Barazite should also sign, and not only because the lad's got talent.
If Rangers send him back to Arsenal, what chance have we got of getting another promising youngster on loan from a high level EPL team?

Welcome might just be a bargain, and the verdict is out on Kerkar and Esajas.

I really doubt rumours of Hutton coming back, as his wages would be too high.

The Benalouane saga has gone quiet, so maybe-maybe not, but the Vlad Weiss story is very interesting. Mancini has him tied into a long-term contract, but the pressure is
on to win something this year, hence the spend, spend spend attitude. Reportedly, Weiss is available to a team who will be in the Champion's League group stage
which rules out that outfit from the east end of Glasgow. I've heard there has been contact between the two clubs, and it looks favourable.

Not heard anything about Wemberg for a while. That lad looked promising too.

If Ally did make the trip to the USA to check out a couple of players recommended by Edu, then the news should be coming in soon about their futures. I think a lot of
these moves depend on Jelavic. There's no doubt Mo Edu has blossomed at Rangers, and the lad has a good football mind. If he recommended someone, I would
have a look at them too.

I think Sandaza would be a worthwhile signing, what with out midfield (read:Davis) being the playmaker he is. He would cost less than Goodwillie. Goodwillie however,
would be a strong signing and one that may come about.

Strong rumours about Eagles being back in the picture. A pal in Accrington tells me Burnley are looking for a replacement for him. Word on the street is he's
going to Glasgow. .yes, us.

That's all so far. .

and a left sided defender to cover for papac

18 Aug 2010 23:50:59
James Porteous, deputy sports editor of The Herald, announced has announced on his Twitter account that "Rangers could be unveiling impressive signing tomorrow"

Either Vladimir Weiss or Nikica Jelavic are the favourites to make an appearance at Murray Park tomorrow, or who knows maybe both?

According to mirror. .

"Rangers pip Celtic for City midfielder

Published 23:00 18/08/10 By Alan Nixonslovakia-vladimir-weiss

Manchester City are sending Slovakia World Cup winger Vladimir Weiss to Rangers – for a bigger loan fee than Celtic offered.

Talented Weiss had the choice of moving to either Old Firm side but is heading for a medical and signing at Ibrox today.

Jelavic defo coming barring villa defeat over 2 legs, Weiss is going to murray park today but only for talks.

18 Aug 2010 23:38:38
Nikica Jelavic should be in before Rapid Veinna's game against Aston Villa and I would expect Vladimer Weiss to be a Rangers player in the next few days mabey before the game at Hibs on Sunday.
