Robert Rowan new director of football. has been interviewed.
Rangers rumours 2
Use our rumours form to send us rangers transfer rumours.
21 Feb 2017 01:56:46
21 Feb 2017 01:06:00
What we must understand is that our team/ squad simply do not have the winning mentality required at Glasgow Rangers.
The only thing that can possibly change that until the end of season is bringing in Alex Mcleish.
Billy Davies will not change that, nor will Tommy Wright or anyone of that calibre.
The board need to get their finger out and employ a manager who will give the players the fear to lose a game.
We need to finish 2nd - we then have a summer clearout a restart the DOF and Manager project from there.
21 Feb 2017 01:51:01
Completely agree. I think McLeish would be the best man for the job of it's only short term as he's actually been good the majority of the time when he inherits a team, it's when he tries to build a team that it goes pear shaped for him. I think he's one of the only managers that would accept standing in as an interim with the stage he is at in his career.
21 Feb 2017 06:24:12
The reason the team don't have a winning mentality is simple, the squad is full of journeymen from the lower leagues of English football who haven't won anything in the game! No leaders and not enough people with the club at heart
21 Feb 2017 06:47:15
The full of scottish football is full of journeyman who haven't won anything. that's just the way sckttish football is
21 Feb 2017 09:48:04
Yes but that's what set us apart in the past we've always had winners! Greig, Butcher, Gough, Amoruso, Ferguson Leaders of men who lead by example and set the tone befitting of a rangers player that's all I'm saying
21 Feb 2017 10:23:18
and we can't afford to live like that again i agree our team is pish but we are still third in the league this is our fist season back think some fan need a bit of perspective on here and McLeish short term yes long term don't think so any one remember poalo vanoli and hamed namuchi
21 Feb 2017 22:57:52
Kevin1984, I agree. The players were good last season in a lower division. Most have struggled to perform this season. There is no leader - no Gough, Greig, Butcher type who could grab the team by the scruff of the neck when things weren't going right. Thegers1986 is correct when he says the whole of Scottish football is full of journeymen but our problem is a lack of fight. Wee teams like Dundee, Ross Co and Morton in recent weeks have shown more desire than we have in the games. Dundee on Sunday, the majority of our players lost every 50-50 ball. These guys shouldn't bother training, they should be made to watch videos all day of guys like Souness, John Brown, Tam Forsyth and Graham Roberts.
22 Feb 2017 06:35:40
To a man our squad is better than most (bar Celtic) in terms of what the players have done in there careers, for example Kranjar has played in world cups, Wilson, miller, Wallace all international players, Hill has played in the premier league etc. When you compare that to Hamilton or Ross county for example they have very few if any with a similar CV but the point i'm trying to make is Everytime we play them they are organised defensively and hard to beat and that's the route we should be looking to take for the immediate future, organise, build from the back and see where we are in the summer
22 Feb 2017 09:09:21
Guys firstly i rated and liked big alex mcleish when he was our manager! But why do we keep looking back the way to former rangers managers? Its always the same ie. get walter smith, get graeme souness, get alex mcleish, not for me fellow bears, although i will and always have support any rangers manager, when they're eventually appointed! Jorge The Hammer, i totally disagree with you when you state alex mcleish could change our teams mentality, and billy davies couldn't! Billy davies without a shred of doubt in my mind, WOULD be able to change our players mentality as he's excellent at that, as well as being a very good manager/ coach! He knows the demands of glasgow rangers football club and has an inner steel and confidence within himself! He'd be perfect for us just now, at least until the end of the season IMO!
22 Feb 2017 14:30:20
7 trophies in 4 years and last 16 Champs League. big Eck signed a few dummies in his time. but Warbs Le Guen and even Watty signed a load of garbage from time to time. remember Boumsong nacho novo prso. as well as Boyd as a youngster from Killie. Signed Buffel and Big Marv and Murray from Hibs who were excellent value for money. Also brought through Hutton Mccormack Burke Mcgregor. and cut the wage bill and made £13m in tranfer fees. not a bad job i'd say
21 Feb 2017 00:59:03
Dougie Freedman is going for an interview this week. Big Rangers man and very keen on the job.
22 Feb 2017 11:24:15
im a huge rangers fan can u give the job to me rangers i'm as qualified as a lot of the names we have been linked with, as i have played football manager!
22 Feb 2017 13:05:40
Got an uneasy feeling Freedman is going to get it. If it has to be a Gers man better off with McLeish.
20 Feb 2017 22:49:31
Norwich assistant manager Alan Irvine being rumoured to be in for managers position. Fingers crossed we can do better than this though.
21 Feb 2017 03:27:20
Really hope this is rubbish our fans deserve a lift and this isn't it. Would rather kevin muscat than him.
22 Feb 2017 11:25:27
there are a lot of people wanting it and he would be well down the pecking order never gonny happen
20 Feb 2017 11:23:40
all over facebook ally mcoist just seen walking into ibrox WTF.
20 Feb 2017 12:11:15
Probably forgot his gardening boots lol
20 Feb 2017 12:21:37
Searched facebook and have absolutely no idea where you are seeing this.
20 Feb 2017 12:27:16
Seen this to, apparently its to do with an interview/ meeting with shareholders, the usual on facebook though, we're going into admin 2
20 Feb 2017 12:36:40
So what if he was at Ibrox? Doesn't mean anything. Plenty of reasons he could be there but the managers job is certainly not one of them. Nor would McCoist even want it.
20 Feb 2017 14:56:35
Why would McCoist being at Ibrox have anything to do with admin anyway? 🤔
20 Feb 2017 15:08:44
I heard he was gifting his shares to the face painter. Nice gesture.
20 Feb 2017 16:33:47
Dunno joscro, maybe with him being a shareholder he would need to be?
20 Feb 2017 17:57:22
He shouldn't be allowed in any more. Ban him
20 Feb 2017 18:18:59
Why ban him?
20 Feb 2017 22:51:31
He was probably going to vote as he forgot to do it last time. LOL
20 Feb 2017 22:01:47
We are interviewing in London for dof and manager position.
21 Feb 2017 00:43:25
Because his none voting cost us fresh investment that's why.
20 Feb 2017 10:12:47
Leeds boss Gary Monk now strongly linked to be Gers new boss. Good manager previously of Swansea and has Leeds in 5th place in the Championship.
20 Feb 2017 10:46:16
Why would he come to us if he's in with the chance of taking Leeds back into the Premiership?
Potentially very good manager though.
20 Feb 2017 10:47:10
Anyone with a current club will cost money in compensation. We are getting deluded. They will bring in McLeish as nothing to pay out. We have to realise our club has no money. Wish we could get a bigger name but I think we need to accept this board will make another arse of things.
20 Feb 2017 10:56:01
Spurs 1974: Don't be so sure we won't get a manager currently at a club.
20 Feb 2017 11:43:58
How do we know that major investment isn't on its way? These things take time and it has been rumoured before that big money is heading for Ibrox, whether Red Bull or some other investors.
20 Feb 2017 13:00:06
Hope you are right genuinely do! But can't help thinking it will be the cheap route as usual with all the rebuilding single fish we keep hearing. Debts are mounting at the club why do you think warburton and Barton really left the club!
20 Feb 2017 17:33:25
Why do folk keep mentioning Red Bull? RB DO NOT INVEST, THEY BUY! Do you seriously want to support a NEWCO next season? We've listened to other fans 'You're not Rangers any more' for nearly 5 years. If Red Bull buy us we won't be Rangers any more! Is that what we want?
20 Feb 2017 17:59:32
What total BS rfc5141 you sound like one of them . I don't care if THEY call us a new club we are and always will be rangers
20 Feb 2017 20:15:15
People not wanting redbull to buy Rangers, don't be so stupid. Rangers have absolutely nothing at the moment so to say you wouldn't accept it is an absolute joke. We need money and we don't seem to be getting it from King
20 Feb 2017 21:15:20
Monk out of contract in summer, no compo needs paid out if he's out of contract
20 Feb 2017 21:25:19
Monk only has one year deal at Leeds . I think . so his contract is up in the summer
20 Feb 2017 23:21:10
Suppose a club fancies a manager already at a club and it would cost £ 2m in compen.
Said manager resigns after his agents hears another club ill give him £ 1m to come to the new club.
I don't believe the managers current club would get a bean.
I know this would involved illegal "tapping up" and I know that football is too ethical a business for such a thing to happen, but, just suppose.
22 Feb 2017 09:44:57
Looks like Monk is the target in the summer.
19 Feb 2017 20:19:52
Heard Tommy Wright to be appointed before Friday.
19 Feb 2017 22:30:45
Tommy Wright can gtf
19 Feb 2017 22:51:34
I said all along that tommy wright is the man for us
20 Feb 2017 06:33:36
Appointing Tommy Wright shows lack of long term ambition for the club and its pretty certain we won't be spending much in the way of players either
20 Feb 2017 06:42:35
Less ambition than shown against Dundee or against Hearts and Ross County?
What with 25 and 50 year old records being broken and never beaten Ross County?
20 Feb 2017 09:16:16
I agree with the above post "Get Tommy Wright right tae F***! "
20 Feb 2017 10:01:41
That would be an appointment that would give Brendan rogers sleepless nights (NOT) . Like Celtic we need to go and a statement in intent by bringing in a proper manager who will put bums in seats. And can we please get away from all this 'he's a rangers man' carry on!
20 Feb 2017 10:25:57
Tommy Wright is a very good manager who will make us harder to beat bring in players willing to work for one another. The problem with the above comment regarding a statement in intent we have no money to do that.
20 Feb 2017 10:49:21
Some of you guys are being amazingly harsh on Tommy Wright. The man must have a budget one tenth the size of ours and yet consistently finishes in the top four and he's won a cup.
Saying that, as RonnieR9 says he wouldn't exactly give BR sleepless nights but which genuine candidate would?
20 Feb 2017 10:59:20
Don't really care if he gives him sleepless nights or not. We should worry about us.
20 Feb 2017 11:44:06
Naz the reason they are being harsh on wright is because they think we have a chance on Frank De Boer when realistically there's pretty much no chance he'll end up in Spain no doubt
20 Feb 2017 17:24:34
defo not any where near the callibre of manager we are looking for.
20 Feb 2017 20:11:06
Got to be Walter till end of season just till we can get a long term solution
21 Feb 2017 10:13:09
The reason we are being harsh on Tommy Wright is he's nowhere near what we need! Has no big club experience, it's not the same managing a club like st Johnstone where teams don't just set up not to get beat off you! Less expectation on you from the fans, media goldfish bowl is more intense!
18 Feb 2017 06:50:12
Murty to stay on until end of season
18 Feb 2017 09:22:21
It's all doom and gloom about the Celtic game for obvious reasons but after thinking on it, if we get a wee bit of fresh momentum with Murty we may even grab a point albeit the game is at Porkheid.
18 Feb 2017 09:35:15
Aye we'll get a point if the game lasts 2mins and even that might be a push
18 Feb 2017 10:02:19
Sure we lasted longer than that at Ibrox
18 Feb 2017 10:12:34
We beat an injury ravaged Morton 2-1 (and they missed an open goal, how on earth does that translate into giving Celtic a game? Cone on.
18 Feb 2017 11:13:51
A wins a win, we ground that win out spoc
And even changed the formation
Have belief, Sellick are beatable
18 Feb 2017 11:28:54
Agree Shotts, but I obviously feel more confident at Ibrox, it's so difficult to get anything at their place, but I also say it might just be the match wher we take something, that's often how football goes.
18 Feb 2017 11:29:56
Of course there beatable but we're terrible
18 Feb 2017 12:39:48
Celtic are beatable but not by you lot.
18 Feb 2017 14:09:54
Ceptic r beatable and we can do it, if they were that a great team why r they not still in Europe if we play a strong defensive game and hit them on the counter attack we will beat them
18 Feb 2017 14:11:54
Fear no Foe, you can never predict these games and it's all about who's up for it and events on the field . Don't care what anyone says. can't wait to see how that lot cope when they do get beat . It will happen and I never look at any game we play expecting we'll be beat. Losers mentality!
18 Feb 2017 15:52:11
Is this the "build yourself up for a mighty fall" starting again. Celtic will beat Rangers at Celtic Park, by a similar if not better score than last time they met there. Wishful thinking if you think otherwise imo.
18 Feb 2017 16:34:34
It's more than wishful thinking
You have got to b positive, is it wise to think
We r going to lose? Or is it simply not good enough
And hope for the best?
Sellick are beatable, I've said that again
18 Feb 2017 17:41:41
It maybe isn't wise to think you will lose. But its definitly realistic to think you will lose. that's twice iv said you will lose, make that 3 times.
18 Feb 2017 17:58:11
It's unrealistic to think that we will lose
And more wise to think of a win
And in most cases I'm pretty sure a draw
Would b took the now . That's optimistic
18 Feb 2017 19:32:38
Can't see us getting any change off Celtic for the foreseeable future. However, if we are to cause an upset then we need to press them high up the park and not let them waltz up to our 18 yard box like we normally do.
18 Feb 2017 19:45:46
I remember when we were as arrogant as the Celtic fans are now. They have short memories the lot of them. They will never have players like Gascoigne, Laudrup, GvB, Wilkins, Stevens, Butcher, even players like Caniggia. players from the World stage. The list goes on.
Celtic can claim Larsson, that's it! of course I forgot they have Dembele the latest World Class player. LOL!
18 Feb 2017 20:38:34
Sour grapes gdog but at least we can appreciate good players. I agree the players you mentioned were good players, which I appreciate as a football fan.
18 Feb 2017 21:45:56
We were never as arrogant as them.
19 Feb 2017 02:46:49
Personally i would do a walter smith keep the back door shut at all costs vs celtic 5 at the back and end it 0-0 or 1-0 atleast then you have your respect intact
19 Feb 2017 10:35:17
'They are beatable'
They have dropped 2 points all season, are unbeaten domestically and have a striker worth more than our entire squad. We need to get real, maybe, just maybe, Fods is better than Gordon. After that? Not one of our players would get a start for Celtic.
Major rebuild needed.
19 Feb 2017 11:47:08
Fod is not better than Gordon. more agile perhaps. McKay would get on the bench. Kiernan would be a starter. OK I took that too far I am clearly joking.
19 Feb 2017 14:24:50
Gdog do you remember what happened to the old rangers because of the money spent on these players?
19 Feb 2017 14:27:44
Geddes we have already lost heavily in Europe and we simply bounced back. By the end of CL we were clearly finding our feet. So us coping with defeat isn't the issue. We are well equipped and will improve again in the summer. We might drop points this season, but this will be draws as I can't see us losing in the league.
If we do however lose again imo it won't be by Rangers. The games against you now don't have the same fear or worry. I think Hearts, Aberdeen and Ross County away are harder games than going to Ibrox. Its only the crowd not the players that make a difference, should be the other way around.
19 Feb 2017 17:58:32
We are kidding ourselves if we reckon this excuse for a football team will finish top three, They are woeful. Today we saw a return to the crap formation, the return of Kiernan who was a waste of space. Hill was destroyed for pace. Our goalkeeper sold two goals. Halliday continues to get a game despite being crap. I could go on but it is pointless. We are seeing the results of King's failure to invest serious money in football players and we are now seeing the clear failure of Warburton and his cronies to acquire even one decent player despite all the bull about how great McParland was. King needs to make a serious statement about his commitment by bringing in a top quality management team and finding a way to bankroll some quality signings. Totally embarrassing. Shades of McCoist's team and shades of everything that has been wrong for the past five seasons. Rant over!
19 Feb 2017 18:54:29
What gets me is we are losing to less than mediocre teams but they are putting more fight and effort in and that is a large part of the problem.
19 Feb 2017 18:59:04
Totally agree with TOMUSA. No point in getting another interim manager in because I can't see what anyone else would be able to do with this squad. They're just not good enough.
19 Feb 2017 18:51:28
Only 7 weeks ago we ran the manky mob close. a miller sitter and a cock up by forrester when 2 on 1. only 10 months ago we beat them deservedly in the cup semi with practically same squad. what went wrong?
19 Feb 2017 23:48:52
While I agree with most of your points Tom I can't agree the keeper sold both goals. No chance of first second comes through a load of bodies n he has basically no time to react
20 Feb 2017 00:32:45
Never known so many Rangers fans suck up and shite themselves from selick. Grow a set and get behind our team. Deary me lads.
19 Feb 2017 00:36:02
God better than Gordon? Jesus have a word with yourself Gordon is pish but Fid is brutal
19 Feb 2017 23:43:36
Chinabairn you're forgetting they had 2 or 3 really good chances at Ibrox as well.
They are a mile ahead of us wake up pains me to say it.
20 Feb 2017 07:48:18
I'm sure if he was advised he was staying in charge till the end of the season he'd do a celebratory forward roll, followed by a cartwheel finishing with a handstand.
Hopefully at this point the board realise that he is a nut case and give the job to an experienced manager (even till the end of the season)
20 Feb 2017 13:19:56
Fabadabadoo: Can't say I remember as there never was an old Rangers.
17 Feb 2017 22:23:51
Muscat next manager with Craig Moore as assistant and bringing in Jim Jeffries as DOF.
17 Feb 2017 23:06:23
Jim Jeffries has just taken a DOF role at another club and muscat would never get in ahead of the Mascot never mind anone else!
18 Feb 2017 12:59:57
@bbfromibrox - you'll be running out of managerial combinations soon! You must be in double figures for the week?
19 Feb 2017 22:33:33
Broxi sorry mate but did that one come to you during an acid trip?
17 Feb 2017 20:12:48
Just watched van bronkhorst pick his best 11 - no Rangers players but if you played with arsenal barcelona and holland don't suppose there would be.
Just a rumour I heard but Gio for head coach!
17 Feb 2017 20:25:03
Here's a rumour I heard RfcChris, any ex player for Rangers or any manager who mentions Rangers will take over in the dugout, any millionaire who mentions Rangers will invest heavily, any teams sponsors we play in a friendly will throw money at us!
17 Feb 2017 20:27:16
I have heard Louis Van Gaal is interested in the DOF with Frank De Boer as Head Coach. Daley Blind will be his first signing. you heard it here first!
17 Feb 2017 20:44:02
Top rumour mate - one of the best but we can only dream.
17 Feb 2017 21:40:17
Hahaha aye nae bother Daley blind? He's worth at least 10 million? These rumours are great man haha . stupid people actually believe this excrement
17 Feb 2017 22:27:09
Ha Ha are you supercooper in disguise? thought only he came out with single fish like that
18 Feb 2017 08:43:35
Absolute nonsense. lol
18 Feb 2017 10:32:01
if DOF is director of finance then why do we need that? we have no effin finance haha
18 Feb 2017 13:59:12
I would hope my club stop mucking around and go and appoint billy davies as our manager, at least until the end of the season! I'm pretty certain that the results would change very much, in our favour, if wee billy was at the helm! He's a terrific coach and motivator, nobody can truly deny that! His record in the english championship, speaks for itself! MR. GOSMAN, or is it gooseman? I've truly lost count of how much single fish you've come away with on these pages my friend! Check back your posts, or maybe not, as it probably would be too embarrassing for you!
18 Feb 2017 14:47:40
Come on Gosman! He got the ohalloran one right, surely that allows him to spout tripe from his 'sources' everyday since!
18 Feb 2017 16:25:06
Supercooper: I actually agree with you.
18 Feb 2017 19:59:47
Appointing Billy Davies to any position within the club is probably the worst thing that Rangers could ever do.
19 Feb 2017 13:49:57
it's Tommy Wright from St Johnstone to be next manager will be confirmed this week
any thoughts and what budget will he be given?
19 Feb 2017 21:47:49
Spot on wee ecky anyone who thinks Billy Davies is the answer has lost the plot not worked for 3 years sacked off and fell out with most chairmen he's worked for aye he sounds a right good man to have at the club
