Barry Ferguson to be announced as 3rd member of management team tomorrow. I for one would say welcome back Barry, we should never have let you go. Great captain and player.
21 Mar 2017 12:27:46
If confirmed- this is quite an interesting development. Pedro usually spends max 18 months at a club - Barry would shadow Pedro and in essence, be a she in for our next manager. thoughts?
21 Mar 2017 12:45:41
Only if he shows the qualities required. We don't want or need another McCoist scenario.
21 mar 2017 13:53:20
i am over the moon if that is true as he is a proper rangers man and will motivate theplayers no end.
having said that i don't think he would be a shoe in for our next manager as going from clyde to a no.3 to a rangers manager is very very big step but i know he will do this job well.
21 Mar 2017 14:34:32
I've met Barry a few times and found him to be both ignorant and arrogant. I think he would the wrong decision as assistant. The whole Paul le Guen debacle should be considered as lessons learned. Don't get me wrong, as a player I loved the guy but I am really unsure about this one. I would be the first to stand and say I was wrong and if he is our new assistant I hope to be proven wrong.
21 mar 2017 14:56:38
if it does come to pass and barry ferguson is the chosen candidate, for the no.3 position, then i'm also delighted and wish a true rangers legend all the best! welcome back baz! i do myself, think the thinking behind this appointment, will be to groom barry under caixinha, with the undoubted view, of him becoming the next glasgow rangers manager, a few years down the line!
but of course i totally take on board that baz must prove himself, while working under pedro caixinha! certain fans on here say, ferguson hasn't done enough as a coach to get this position, whereas i totally disagree with them and let me explain why!
at this moment in time, barry ferguson is being brought in more from his experience at knowing the mentality of rangers as opposed to being the finished article, as a coach! he'll be helping pedro, baptista and malta, gauging the culture of rangers and scottish football in general, first and foremost! helping them settling in to life at glasgow rangers, if you like!
although baz has a wee bit of coaching experience at both blackpool and clyde, he still has a bit to learn, before he'll be considered, as glasgow rangers manager material! but he will learn under caixinha and if he does then without question, he could well be the next rangers manager!
he possesses a lot of the qualities just now, that's needed to be a glasgow rangers manager! if it is baz confirmed as our new no.3, then all i can say is "welcome home barry"! back where you belong! the guys a winner and rangers to the core!
21 Mar 2017 15:13:28
@thebluevoice - if true, This appointment doesn't fill me with confidence. He has shown nothing ability wise to be a decent coach and it doesn't show any ambition giving someone a job just because he's a ' Rangers Man '.
@barcabbear - Rangers manager in 18 months? Really? Let's hope he picks a lot up in those 18 months.
21 Mar 2017 15:29:28
I really don't think Ferguson is the way to go. Are we forgetting McCoist was a rangers legend and learned under Walter for a few years and it didn't make him a great manager. It worries me that people think he would be the next manager after Caixinha. Would far prefer someone like Neil McCann who is a far more articulate analyser of the game than ferguson and still knows what the club is about.
21 Mar 2017 15:41:57
To everyone that is against Barry returning incase it turns into another Coisty situation, I didn't hear anyone complaining when he was no2 to Walter Smith with us and Scotland, in fact I never heard a negative story about Ally when he was number 2. So if it is Barry (personally I hope it is) let's wish him the best and get on with it, if he can help nurture any of our midfielder's into being half the player he was he'll have earned his money in my book
21 Mar 2017 15:10:38
big Ped you are way off the mark. I have also met the guy. Yes he is a confident guy with an ego but its one he has earned. 5 league titles european final club captain. Come on now that's exactly the guy we need. he's nit there to be a friend he's there to lead
21 Mar 2017 15:34:08
Big Ped, I've known Barry Ferguson since he was about eight and I've never found him to be either arrogant or ignorant. He's one of the good guys in fact, and he's even stopped in the street to talk to my wife and myself in passing. You will indeed be proved wrong about him if this actually happens, because not only does his heart and soul belong to Rangers, he will learn from PC and add that knowledge to his love for Rangers. Potentially a great move.
21 Mar 2017 17:30:31
Yip meet baz loads of time great guy to speak to if it is baz i wish him all the best
21 Mar 2017 18:10:03
Big ped totally agree re Ferguson. I had the displeasure of meeting him in person at 2005 Rangers Halloween bash in Hilton hotel. he's a total ned! I respectfully asked him to sign an autograph for my mrs at the time. It wasnt a hard name to spell (Barbara) he tried to spell it out 3 times b4 thrusting the pen and paper back into ma hand and said ah **** it! Not only thick but totally ignorant. I spent a 100 quid on a ticket to be treated like that by a gers captain was a disgrace. Give me alex rae or neil mccann b4 ferguson. Wonderful player but has no class whatesoever. Doubt he will end up an asset to pedro neither!
21 Mar 2017 19:27:32
Really hope Barry gets the gig as i know he'd put his all into it and if it didn't wrk it wouldn't b for the want of trying. as for the PLG saga, the only thing Barry was guilty of was caring to much as players at that time will tell you. PLG was a disaster end of. Please come home Barry and instill some of those battling qualities you had into our club
21 Mar 2017 19:36:08
Superbly written wee-ecky! I'm with you all the way regarding barry ferguson mate! I've also met baz at numerous supporters functions and always found him extremely approachable and pleasant to speak to! I actually sponsored barry ferguson's home clyde shirt for his 1st full year at clyde!
I paid 80 quid to become his home shirt sponsor! I had always tried to sponsor his rangers home shirt when he was at ibrox but he was sponsored by a company from harthill that i know rather well, ie. curtis insulation! They kept renewing their sponsorship with baz every season, so i couldn't become his shirt sponsor, while he was at rangers!
In fact i even lost out to curtis insulation yet again, when he moved to blackburn rovers! Baz was a big favourite of mine and was one helluva captain and midfielder, for the famous glasgow rangers! The greatest of his generation, BAR NONE! I really do hope that baz is, coming home!
21 Mar 2017 21:53:47
Happy to see him back even happier he's not the number 2, nothing against him just think this is perfect for him he is going to get to learn the trade and gain the experience to hopefully in 4 or 5 years take the reigns, think coming in as assistant manager would have been wrong choice for him and rangers
21 Mar 2017 22:28:02
Barry has denied even speaking to anyone about the role, according to Keech of the DR, who claims to have had a denial from the man himself.
22 Mar 2017 10:00:28
I would be surprised if this happens, the one thing Pedro has shown is he likes to do his research, and if he does some research on BF then he will find he was one of the reasons PLG failed. As club captain he didn't support PLG and he doesn't appear to be the type that learns from their mistakes, therefore it's unlikely he would fully support Pedro. I think he would be better giving the role to Murty or Alex Rae. Murty did well to turn that team around in 4-5 weeks, and Alex Rae seems to be a quite thoughtful coach that is keen to learn.
22 mar 2017 10:31:46
people forget that barry ferguson always put the club he adores before himself everytime! remember the injections he took weekly into his pelvis? just one of many things he risked his health for, which was all for glasgow rangers! barry ferguson is a winner! we can't ever have enough of these guys at our club! plain and simple!
22 Mar 2017 10:31:43
Well said wee ecky. Ped was way off the mark. Baz shoukd be regarded as club legend. He won more trophies than any other rangers captain.
22 Mar 2017 10:32:31
Thebluevoice, i don't think any candidate for our no.3 role, will be chosen and announced until early next week mate! Although i do hope you're right, because the quicker he's chosen the better! Every bear has they're own opinion on who they want it to be! For me its barry ferguson all the way! But of course if it happens to be john (bomber) brown or alex rae or neil mccann, then i will also get behind them, and give them my full backing, totally!
22 Mar 2017 15:36:00
people you are comparing barry to ally isn't fair on either of them barry for me hasn't learned from the best and mccoist for me is hated by some idiotic rangers fans for taking his wages!
also mccoist came in and won htree league titles first time of asking while being everything to rangers; their p. r guy their scout their spokesman all at the time rangers where a their lowest and the guy got nothing but stick for it.
yes his tactics where terrible but so where the players he was stuck with.
people like you the blue voice are like a dog with a bone, u just don't know when to let go.
also mccoist was manager not a no.3, barry will hardly have anything to do with the technical training side and more to do with motivating the players and settling pedro into life in the gold fish bowl
22 Mar 2017 15:46:20
Thebluevoice, for the record mate, richard gough won more trophies as rangers captain, than barry ferguson did mate!
22 Mar 2017 16:52:31
I once puked on Barry Ferguson's shoes in the old Destiny nightclub in town. He was ok about it and asked if i was alright. Not sure whether that means he will be our No.3 in the dug-out though?
21 Mar 2017 08:12:48
I've seen a few places this morning that we are apparently signing Darren Fletcher. anyone heard this or no anymore about this?
21 Mar 2017 11:34:33
rumours like that make me sigh too!
21 Mar 2017 11:39:28
sincerely hope not - one of the most over rated players i've ever seen and also a self confessed follower of them.
21 Mar 2017 13:53:09
Darren played for us and them as a lad. He did grow up a Celtic fan tho I doubt it would make a jot of difference in his decision making process. Doubt he will sign for us though.
21 mar 2017 13:54:22
don't want players past their sell by date.
21 Mar 2017 15:35:54
Camoo, he didn't 'play' for us, he was invited a few times for coaching sessions and development games aged about 13 but when he made it quite plain he was going to Manchester United we dropped our interest.
20 Mar 2017 18:46:25
Anyone any info on the DoF position or when they expect to appoint one?
21 Mar 2017 04:52:07
Supposedly its out off bomber brown, ferguson and miller, going by the papers.
21 Mar 2017 04:53:02
Sorry i read tht wrong lol tht was for 1st team coach. I duno who is dof, seen mcleish has knocked it bk though.
21 Mar 2017 10:54:57
Maybe Ferguson for coach and Brown for DOF that sounds good to me especially if bomber brings his boots
21 Mar 2017 11:32:09
Rangers never spoke to Eck about DoF role but when asked the question on bbc he said he felt he still had something to give in management.
21 Mar 2017 13:55:57
yes, but the dark side will spin it so that we got another knock back and that's the media i am talking about when referring to the dark side this time, lmao.
20 Mar 2017 09:59:32
I believe the interviews for our scottish / local no. 3 position, to work under pedro caixinha starts today! I'm also led to believe, that barry ferguson has his interview, for the position, today!
The other 2 candidates that are shortlisted to be interviewed, this week are seemingly, neil mccann and alex rae! We should find out who's the chosen candidate, by the end of this week!
I truly think barry ferguson will get the job! What do other bears out there think? what have you heard regarding this? Should be interesting!
20 Mar 2017 10:07:51
@SC11 - I would have preferred Murty to have been given it. I honestly don't see what the rest bring to the club in a coaching capacity - one of the criteria that Pedro is looking for.
20 Mar 2017 12:24:32
UJ a would love to see murty involved in some way as a do believe he does deserve to be in the first team set up and would be happy to see any of the of the 3 candidates at ibrox but time will tell but things are looking good onwards and upwards
20 Mar 2017 12:44:52
Could it be that Murty will be with the first team squad and the guys being interviewed takeover Murty's old position?
20 Mar 2017 13:32:10
Murty deserves to be included in the first team coaching set up.
20 Mar 2017 14:40:05
I don't think Murty wants to be involved with the first team as i think he sees himself a nurturer of young talent and mabey with his increased rep at the club now he can push the issue to get any young guys that look like they have what it takes to be included in the 1st yeam squad.
20 Mar 2017 14:40:37
Imo Neil McCann would be an excellent choice, the guy know what he's on about had a similar job at dunfermline and only left due to bigger money deal on skysports, I do think if rangers came calling it would turn his head, just my opinion tho
20 Mar 2017 15:03:05
Tommyj79 a agree with u a think murty has been offered to stay and work with first team but has decided he's happy to continue his work with youth squad and that's prob why we are looking at other options was good to see murty out with the squad on saturday aswel and the fans reception for him was first class
20 Mar 2017 17:24:40
Graeme murty would have been a very good shout for the position UnionJack, but he wants to continue his great work coaching the under 20's! The rangers directors also want him to continue in this very important role, in what will hopefully feed our first team with very good, well coached and developed, young players! Much the same situation with kenny miller who's already doing a bit of coaching at MP, but he wants to continue playing with doing his wee bit of coaching which he's currently doing and enjoying! Kenny also would have been a good choice IMHO!
20 Mar 2017 17:40:09
I'd be happy with any one of the 3 of them, although I like Murty I want him to work with the youth it's an important job and one which I'm confident now Murty is right guy for .
20 Mar 2017 17:58:35
I'd be amazed if neil mccann got job considering he said live on sky sports that in his opinion it was a mistake giving caixinha the job.
20 Mar 2017 18:02:48
Barry for me
20 Mar 2017 18:21:47
Neil McCann has been scathing in his criticism of rangers during the past 5 years. Albeit his job means he should be impartial he has taken it to new levels. I would gladly take Barry or Alec Rae. Both have the desire and dig to support Pedro. I know its not just about being Rangers men but if that's the case why is Pedro so set in getting someone like this onboard? Answer because it's necessary. O will support 100% the decision
21 Mar 2017 10:49:07
Whilst I agree Murty did a great job in the interim role, Pedro is the manager now and specifically stated he wants an experienced coach with extensive local knowledge.
Murtys never been a coach before aside from
U20s so he wouldn't fit the role. If supercoop's shortlist is right I think Alex Rae should get it; he has good playing experience both sides of the border, has good coaching experience from his time at St Mirren and as a bonus is a dyed in the wool bluenose.
The blend of passion and experience from Pedro and Rae at murray park would be just what we need!
21 Mar 2017 11:04:56
Union Jack, the man has already said this appointment doesn't necessarily have to be involved in the coaching.
21 Mar 2017 11:22:24
What about John (bomber) brown anyone? He's a proper diehard rangers fan with coaching experience! This rangers legend has red, white and blue, running through his veins! He absolutely adores glasgow rangers!
20 Mar 2017 09:54:45
Hyndman returning to Bournmouth at end of season. Bad news for us but not totally unexpected. Young man with great ability he wants to play at highest level. Sign of the times that Bournmouth dwarf Rangers and The other mob. Pedro i'm sure will get quality replacement in.
20 Mar 2017 10:27:17
It is nothing to do with Bournemouth dwarfing the Old Firm. It's the money and better potential to go to higher places.
20 Mar 2017 11:24:41
Yeah and I don't think we have much chance with toral as he signed an extension to his arsenal contract before coming to us
20 Mar 2017 12:13:13
Crowd at Bournemouth at weekend was under 12000.
If that's dwarfing rangers or celtic then so be it.
20 Mar 2017 14:45:48
If he wasn't getting a game with Bournemouth before he came to us what make him get a game when he gets back, there maybe every chance we could loan him again .
20 Mar 2017 20:37:19
Think there is a good chance we could loan him for the season next season. eddie Howe has got to be happy with what he is doing just now so as he is still a young guy I think there is a very good chance they will loan him again for one more full Season would benefit him loads then after that he would be better placed to go play in the EPL
21 Mar 2017 10:51:01
Sorry fellow bears. Club size isn't about crowd size any longer. You're right bournemouth have done diddly squat in their entire history and average 15000 at home games. But its the TV revenue that's the killer. Bit like celtic getting all that dosh simply for being humiliated in champions league. Its not right and hopefully the TV dosh will disappear but it won't anytime soon. Watford also dwarf us and swansea. Sorry guys.
21 Mar 2017 13:57:37
why can't sky or bt see that we would be a better investment than that of the championship we pull in bigger crowds and have much much bigger support and i'm including hearts hibs, the sheep and both dundee sides in this.
as if bournemouth can get more viewers than us. then we would be as well as giving up, but i don't believe for a second that that is the case. it's just they don't want us to get any better and would love us to go tits up.
20 Mar 2017 09:18:19
Rangers looking to bring in Darren Fletcher on a free at the end of the season after he claims he'd like to finish his career in Scotland.
20 Mar 2017 10:45:31
Would love this to be true. Can't see it though. Apparently a Celtic fan so they would hlbe his first choice if he wanted to play in Scotland
20 Mar 2017 11:50:09
One of my work colleagues is good friends with Darren Fletcher. He was saying how he is enjoying life at West Brom and can see himself retiring there. Big Cel*ic fan, so can't see him coming to the Gers
20 Mar 2017 12:37:26
i can assure all us bears rangers will be linked with a few the loaness will return to there parent club but am sure Pedro will hav his sights on players to bring in will thay be signings or will he go down the loan route but do Wee no what kind of chest king will give him ano somebody stated a while bak that he will be giving a chest of 2.5 m a do think it will be more than that
20 Mar 2017 12:46:16
Absolute nonsence that Fletcher is a celtic fan.
He supported hibs as a kid however is a proffesional so don't see what it matters who he supports
20 Mar 2017 12:46:48
Darren Fletcher is a massive Celtic fan. If he was going to be coming up here, which I very much doubt, then the only place he will go will be to them
20 Mar 2017 17:28:35
Allymitchell, how good do you reckon your info is on the possibility of darren fletcher signing for us in the summer mate? I don't doubt you mate, i'm only asking how trustworthy your source is on this info
20 Mar 2017 18:13:57
i hope not he is past his best and for me hasn't been the same since his bowel problem
20 Mar 2017 22:38:05
Rumour is all over twitter, just passing it on SuperCoop. Doubt it personally but this is a rumours site after all.
21 Mar 2017 00:23:54
What does supporting a team mean now a days for pro players. they go where the money is well 99% of them. Look at the lego muncher.
21 Mar 2017 10:38:08
MoJo was a massive Selik fan as well but gey-ho. and for the record DF is a Selik fan so stop with the Hibs guff
21 Mar 2017 10:42:16
There is absolutely no chance of Fletcher ever playing for Rangers. That's a fact.
21 Mar 2017 11:05:11
Darren Fletcher used to go to the Stranraer games when he was a kid so he must be a Celtic fan. Not everyone in Scotland supports us or them.
21 Mar 2017 11:07:46
Why would we bring him to Rangers? More likely to go to the Dark side and they are welcome to him.
21 Mar 2017 13:56:01
He used to go to the Celtic games with his uncle and had a season book for a few years. quick bit of research tells you this.
21 Mar 2017 14:05:16
since he came back from that spell out of the game he isn't even close to scott brown never mind what rangers need.
19 Mar 2017 22:48:28
I really do wish it was possible that we could keep our young, loanee, american midfielder, emerson hyndman! Even if we can get him on an extended loan deal from bournemouth, for the full of next season!
Young hyndman is a terrific midfielder and has been outstanding for us, since joining us on loan in january! He's also scoring goals for us! He has everything in his locker to make it big in the game! I know there's absolutely no chance of us signing him permanently! He reminds me so much of a young ian durrant! I can pay young hyndman no higher compliment than that!
20 Mar 2017 08:44:06
Wouldn't say there's no chance of us signing him permanently, but no harm in asking the question to Bournemouth. Walter Smith made a big statement when he came back by signing Steve Davis permanently, so would send out the right signals if the board backed Pedro to try and sign Hyndman.
20 Mar 2017 09:18:24
I think Hyndman comparison to Ian Durant is spot on. The young lad has been a excellent signing. I think he would jump at the chance to sign for us. Play at Bournemouth or Ibrox doesn't really compare to be fair. Sorry Bournemouth, no offence intended.
20 Mar 2017 09:30:19
Agree about the lad but you are off your heads if you thing it really is down to the board whether or not he would sign!
Based on promise, he could get £40k per week in the EPL. do you really thing we could justify anything like that in Scotland?
20 Mar 2017 09:22:53
I think toral is playing well now too. Plays much better there than Halliday
20 Mar 2017 09:51:44
Bear2306,i doubt we could afford to sign emerson hyndman, permanently mate! I would obviously hope we could though! The 2 reasons that unfortunately we won't get hyndman permanently are that eddie howe rates him very highly and of course, like i mentioned, the high transfer fee! A wee question bear2306.How much do you think bournemouth would want for hyndman, taking into account he signed a 4 year deal with them, when he left fulham? That question is out there for all other bears also!
20 Mar 2017 09:58:21
He is returning to Bournemouth at end of season.
20 Mar 2017 17:15:09
You would think we could extend it for another season.
20 Mar 2017 18:18:13
i see the comparisons with durant also but he isn't as physical as he was but he does have everything else in the locker
21 Mar 2017 14:22:29
what is the price tag on his head does anyone know?
19 Mar 2017 14:16:27
Pedro's first signing could be that of 20 year old defensive midfielder Danilo from Sporting Braga, currently on loan at Standard Liege Only thing is he would cost in the region of 2 million
19 Mar 2017 15:15:50
Or it couldn't
19 Mar 2017 22:44:56
2 million. where are you getting 2 million from?
MW, DW and FMP will be due roughly 2 million!
20 Mar 2017 09:23:59
These guys can only go for loss of earnings. I doubt any reasonable person won't see that the three of them we're in the process of chucking it in any case. No doubt DK jumped the gun but I think this will just go away, neither party can afford to fight a claim. Dirty washing and all that.
20 Mar 2017 09:24:51
Are you their lawyer by any chance kaney? why are you so hell bent on coming on here and telling us who has and has not got money for this or that because you don't have a clue what's happening.
why not concentrate on your own team for a change my god your team is going to win the league again but all you seem to do is come on here and spout pure guff about Rangers all the time.
surely there must be something about your team of superstars you could talk about with your own fans rather than always talking about all things Rangers all the time or are you just obsessed about us?
20 Mar 2017 09:31:11
kaney1983, King will make funds available and Warburton etc won't get a penny.
20 Mar 2017 17:43:19
Do the old management not waiver any comp by signing contract for new club?
20 Mar 2017 18:22:00
warbs and co shouldn't and in my opinion won't get a penny as anyone with something between their can see that this move was happening
19 Mar 2017 09:36:06
Is this the last season where 32Red is our sponsor? Anyone any news on any potential replacements?
Hopefully we get Adidas or Under armour in at some point making strip. If new kit is anything like the Lionbrand home one it b a best seller assuming we can stop SD selling it. We realy need that revenue coming in. Good start for Pedro.
19 Mar 2017 12:57:28
Yes, this is the 3rd and final season, with 32Red as our shirt sponsors mate! The only thing that i've heard is that red bull will be replacing 32Red as our new shirt sponsors, starting from next season! Although nothing has been announced yet! As for our kit manufacturers, we have still 1 more year left to run with puma! Although like the shirt sponsors, still absolutely no info on this whatsoever! You would have thought there would have been something said to the fans by now, as the new kits will currently be getting made!
19 Mar 2017 15:08:04
I don't see why the fans have to be informed about this until a new deal has been signed.
19 Mar 2017 16:51:37
The point being BR65, is that we're getting told absolutely hee haw especially after our chairman told us when they swept to power 2 years ago, that he would be transparent with the fans from the outset!
Now i'm a shareholder as well as being a season ticket holder and up 'till now, like many other shareholders, have been disappointed in king's lack of transparency and info!
I've put big money into our club for almost 43 years now and also lost a lot of money through my shares when we went into liquidation and then again with charles green! So i feel like a hell of a lot of other shareholders, that we deserve some kind of info and updates on important things, regarding our club!
19 Mar 2017 17:10:02
Well said supercooper! We are all due a lot more clarity. We were told it would happen hence why we expect it.
Im desperate to get my boy a Gers strip and other merchandise but have steadfastly refused to do so until the retail contracts are more weighted in RFC favour. On another note the resignation of 3 directors from club1872 is concerning. Wats the script? Anyone shed any light?

yes i agree we should have more clarity but u know how deals go no one is allowed to say anything untill its signed as if they said oh its gonny be this then they pulled our we would look like clowns so i see why we are not being told something about this situation and if they are to get a settled deal with the fat rat in court then they can't talk aout that either .
that being said when are they going to court as its dragging on a bit will have finnished te contract by the time we get into court.

James pretty sure case vs Sports Direct is 13 July at supreme court. We got to win this Bears. Its a collection of shameful retail contracts. a blind man could see that

Warburton linked with taking Tavernier to Notts Forrest. Please let this one be true!
18 Mar 2017 12:24:23
He might try to get MacKay on the cheap. I know he is inconsistent, and soft as poo, but there is a lot of potential there, if developed properly.
18 Mar 2017 12:54:57
Warburton is always going to be linked with players from his previous clubs, as this was the case when he was at Rangers.
If Tav was to leave we have Hodson, and it would have to be a decent transfer fee if Mackay was to go to Nottingham Forest.
Caixinha has just arrived at Ibrox so all fans need to be patient until he assesses the squad.

Tav could be a very good midfielder for us I'd keep him
18 Mar 2017 17:21:08
I personally think there's a player in Tav - he has all the attributes of the modern wing back; quick athletic good on the ball and can score from open play and set pieces. He obv needs to work on his defensive duties but a good coach should be able to help with that.
If warbs wants him, well he signed a contract extension so should have 2.5yrs left so will have to pay top dollar for him - fed up with the number of players we let go down the years when we could hold out for some sort of few - darren mcgegor to hibs a classic example
18 Mar 2017 18:12:32
Hodson may be a bit more defensive than tav but tav brings a lot more to the team than hodson
18 Mar 2017 20:26:08
I thought tav was outstanding today. If we ever were to do business with mw we shouldn't be selling players that can do a job especially once them and the rest of the team are given decent information if mw wants him he will have to pay over the odds
18 Mar 2017 20:49:31
people going on like hodson is this class player and how is he not playing over tav? The reason is over all tav is a much better all round player and has a lot more to offer. People sounding like we have a Salgado in his peak on the bench and we are playing tav over him it's lee hodson and he really not that good he can come in and do a job when asked yes but if he played week in week out he would not be good enough.
18 Mar 2017 21:08:53
Got to agree lads. there's definitely a player in Tav and he has all the right attributes, i would like to see him getting a run in midfield
18 Mar 2017 22:47:21
That's a load of rubbish, hodson has been a standout when's he has come in. a defenders job is to defend and he does that, tavernier can't defend
18 Mar 2017 23:24:06
Tav is better offensively than Hodson but it all depends how Caixinha wants the team to play.
We played a 4-2-3-1 formation v Hamilton which gives a bit more cover defensively to the back four if Tav or Wallace forage forward.
18 Mar 2017 23:44:11
Hodson is a better bet defensively but I agree with Deanobear, Tav is a far better player all in all, he makes opposition woory dfensively about his attacking threat!
I remember us all slating Hutton for exactly the same thing when with us but truth be told he was a real worry for opposing teams! its a rare thing for a fullback to have that threat! let's enjoy it whilst we have it guys!

Warbs wants to come back to rangers for tav mckay waghorn wallace etc rangers should stand firm an get top dollar if forest for instance want to pay £1.5m for mckay them some one else will pay more i just hope n pray he comes back on his hands n knees an begs rangers to sell him foderingham he is total an utter pish my 5 yr old clears a ball from a back pass better
19 Mar 2017 12:42:38
Foderingham is utter pish, aye ok mate.
19 Mar 2017 12:28:04
Kaymer, the boys still learning his trade and everybody makes at least one mistake a day but if you were at the last few games he has been massive between the sticks👍💙🇬🇧
19 Mar 2017 20:45:13
Kaymer, you stick to the golf mate
21 Mar 2017 10:30:08
if he wants tav and mckay tell him 20 million for the pair.
21 Mar 2017 11:06:55
Tav is an awful midfielder. only descent coming from deep.
