MOH has no intention of moving on unless someone can match the 7K per week he is currently getting at Rangers.

Agree16 Disagree2

27 Jun 2017 08:29:57
Rangers could pay half his wages to get him off the books

26 Jun 2017 22:12:24
Is it true Aberdeen are after Naismith and may let McLean go because of this?

Agree2 Disagree15

26 Jun 2017 23:27:20
So naismiths going from £50 grand a week with a year left on his contract to £4 grand tops with aberdeen, aye right .

27 Jun 2017 07:15:05
I can still see him end up with us.

27 Jun 2017 09:02:03
I would doubt the Aberdeen thing too, would still like us to get him, he can change a game.

27 Jun 2017 12:11:52
Mind you Lafferty is taking a huge wage cut with Hearts, be 4 or 5 thousand.

27 Jun 2017 12:52:07
Lafferty isn't taking a wage cut. he's a free transfer so therefore doesn't have as wage.

27 Jun 2017 13:56:36
So free transfers don't get paid?

27 Jun 2017 15:07:40
Until their contract is up then yes e. g. If Laffable's contract with Norwich runs till June 30th then as of today he's still being paid but after that he's what he deserves to be- unemployed. Sorry never liked him even when he was winning the league for us!

26 Jun 2017 21:17:57
Andy halliday in line for a loan move to fc gabala from azerbaijan according to sun.

Agree6 Disagree4

26 Jun 2017 14:35:53
Hearing rumbles about loic remy again! Anyone else heard anything?

Agree1 Disagree16

26 Jun 2017 15:25:13
the guy is on £80k a week where we pulling the cash for his wages. properly our combined wages of the team would be £80k a week. Not a chance in this happening

26 Jun 2017 15:58:38
Ridiculous rumour to be honest. I know we have spent a little more this season, however to be able to afford Loic we'd need to get rid of 14 players purely to afford his wages.

26 Jun 2017 16:15:46
just because he is on 80k a week the now doesn't mean we would be paying that. he's probably got another year left at Chelsea and they might just be cutting their losses and taking whatever they can for him as a loan deal.

however I do agree its very unlikely.

26 Jun 2017 16:20:59
Loic has a year to run on his contract. Chelsea aren't looking to loan him out, they want to sell him.

26 Jun 2017 21:06:29
He's played 37 times in 3 seasons, has an awful injury record and has no sell on value if he is let go on the cheap, NAW.

26 Jun 2017 12:25:14
Ranger will go out for Dorrans this week what will most likely see him signed, Pedro is desperate for him and will bite the bullit and pay what is wanted to get his man, also we are going to go full on to get kenny McLean, as he was a player who trained as a youth and gers have only registerd 23 players out of 25 and to player who come threw the youth ranks short, so McLean would fit that bill,

Agree5 Disagree7

26 Jun 2017 13:41:49
part of me thinks that why we will keep mckay (if his contract issues can be resolved) . he is a player who we have trained and if we sold he will be a player down for Europe. Does anyone know what the problem was. did we not offer him enough or was he wanting to see what Pedro was all about before signing on the dotted line?

26 Jun 2017 13:59:32
No he wouldn't. He was never a signed professional.

26 Jun 2017 14:54:10
Nothing to do with pro contract its whether he has trained with club for 3 years before age of 21

26 Jun 2017 16:37:25
Not quite accurate Brian1987. The player has to have been at the club for 3 years between the ages of 15 and 21. McLean was born in Jan 1992. Therefor he turned 15 in Jan 2007. However he moved to St Mirren in 2009. So he only has 2 of the required 3 eligible years.

26 Jun 2017 18:38:38
never said he had trained with us for 3 years just said that's the rule parky7720 lol i think bates mckay wilson and whichever 3rd choice keeper should cover the four required for club trained players not sure how many scottish trained players other than wallace miller and jack we have we may be 1 short which dorrans or mcclean would fill

26 Jun 2017 22:55:14
McLean will be a pre contract in January

27 Jun 2017 10:38:08
Bates has only been with us for 2 seasons so he doesn't count as club trained, but should count as association trained. Our club trained are Wilson and McKay and they have left two blank spaces to cover the other 2 required. We have Wallace, Miller, Jack, Holt and Bates to make up the required 4 association spaces.

25 Jun 2017 22:50:46
Pedro is hopeful he can finally get Dorrans deal over the line at some point in the next 24 hours.
Norwich board meeting tomorrow to discuss £1.3m bid plus add ons.
Dorrans already agreed terms in principal with an agreed wage cut to make deal possible widely reported.

Agree15 Disagree5

26 Jun 2017 00:38:18
Hope it's enough to get the deal done. Dorrans would be a smashing player who'd improve us massively.

26 Jun 2017 00:46:27
Let's just hope this 1 is for real this time, Dorrans would be massive for us. Like u say TheGlagowranger I seen the reports with basically what u said in your post.

I feel there's one or 2 people on here that don't know how good Dozza is! It's like they think he's average or something. Only one or 2 people.

I can't tell u why he's only got 19 caps for Scotland, I also can't tell you why Scott brown plays before him, when Dozza is twice the player. I think it might be ginger strachans wee frav and Levine before him.

Anyway as my new top comes tomorrow, it would be fitting that Dorrans signs . Really hope so and it's no more PR guess work lol 😂

26 Jun 2017 05:42:16
agree fellow bears - to get dozzy over the line wld be a great signing for our club and a significant statement of intent

the lad's a crackin player and can sit in and keep the ball for us with his range of passing, but crucially he can go and make a real impact in the final third creating assists and goals.

I've watched him for years in EPL and always been impressed and it obv helps he's a huge bluenose!

fingers xd this happens - will be our best signing so far.

26 Jun 2017 09:36:35
I think we're going a wee bit overboard over a player who is a good pro but not good enough to pick up more than 12 (NOT 19!) caps out of a possible 70 for a country that's struggling badly. Great, fantastic, massive, that's Ronaldo. Good, steady, reliable, that's Dorrans.

26 Jun 2017 10:43:07
I think it's important to remember he is a rangers fan as well as a solid midfield player with exellant passing stats he will understand what it means to be a ranger. Along with Waldo miller and jack. We need these type of players to mix with the continental players

26 Jun 2017 11:13:30
Wee-Ecky, Don't see your point about Dorrans and the amount of caps he has? being picked for the Scotland team has always been a case of pals act, few players over the years who have been overlooked due to managers simply not liking them

26 Jun 2017 11:52:17
Wee Ecky you on the crack? Surely even you know that dorrans is a class above what we have and what play in the SPFL at the moment. There are players who the national manager doesn't like but that doesn't make them bad players. Jordan Rhodes? Ross McCormack? Lee Wallace? to name a few. all good players and would improve the national team but don't get picked. Dorrans is and would ba great signing for us. but hey ho what would it be without some negativity some people are never happy.

26 Jun 2017 12:08:52
Weee Ekky, before you start banging on about how little his Scotland caps are. Might be worth remembering why- Dorrans suffered a ongoing personal tragedy that I would not wish on anyone.
Dorrans was unavailable for many ties.

So before correcting me on a couple of caps get your facts straight.
Think before u talk man!
Or risk sounding like wee -fool, not wee - Ekky

26 Jun 2017 13:24:02
can i ask how many caps did davy cooper get wee ecky?

that if anything should tell you it's not necessarily a true barometer of success

the lego muncher is every managers fave hence the no of caps he has but to my mind he's bang average

wee chesney wldnt dare incur the wrath of the unwashed hordes of fans and media apologists by not picking him

so whilst i agree int caps is a measure of success it's not always accurate

just a thought. i maintain if we get dorrans he'll be a crackin player for us

26 Jun 2017 13:43:00
"before you start banging on about how little his Scotland caps are"

Maybe he has a small head.

26 Jun 2017 14:10:26
Ei minto. Super coop. 22 Caps 6 Goals. Should have had a lot more I hope we can get Dorrans he will run over the top o the lego muncher

26 Jun 2017 14:24:05
To all of you who read what you wanted to be in my post and not what was actually in it.
1. I said Dorrans was a good pro. Of course he's better than the dross we're in the process of getting rid of. I never said he wasn't.
2. While I fully understand the lad's tragic problems, the number of caps is a legitimate measure. Davie Cooper was capped just 22 times because for almost 4 years Jock Stein preferred John Robertson, if he used a winger, so Onlyshowaround you are partially correct when you say caps are sometimes down to managers liking you or otherwise.
3. I said he was a good player, a reliable player and he is. I just pointed out that he is not 'massive' 'cracking' or 'smashing'.
4 I'm not on crack, what a repulsive comment, but I do believe a byproduct of being addicted to that drug is euphoria coupled with paranoia, both evident in your mad post, Kri 55.
5 Unlike most of you I have seen Dorrans in action for both club and country and I would certainly like to see him sign for Rangers, nowhere have I said any different. He'd be a decent addition to our team. Also, unlike most of you, I won't crucify him after he has a poor game.

26 Jun 2017 18:01:46
Ecky might be wrong but I can remember emmon bannon of Dundee Utd getting picked to play for Scotland on the left wing ahead of super coop for years and not John Robertson ( nott forest ) not (hearts ) bannon was no bad but not in the same league as super bannon not great at crossing ether as he couldn't see who was in the middle way all that hair

25 Jun 2017 12:26:48
The Scotsman reported that Warbs has had an initial bid for Tavernier rejected, they say he will be back with other offer. No mention of how much he bid though. If we were offered over £1m it would be worth considering to replace him with a more natural defender.

Agree6 Disagree8

25 Jun 2017 14:54:09
Pedro doesn't want his fullbacks to be too defensive. I would take 1m for tav and hope that Pedro can find a better quality players replace him. However that will be an attack minded fullback.

25 Jun 2017 18:44:06
Maybe ped can't find a better replacement for him that offer value for money and he feels it's best too hold onto him till he does this.

Or then again maybe Ped likes him and has. If plans for him what ever he decides I think he will make the best decision based on his squad formation and style of play.

25 Jun 2017 19:43:38
At today's inflated market I do not think we would get a so
Liar standard player for 1 mil. also selling him in England we should ask for at least 2mil

26 Jun 2017 00:01:40
I'd keep Tav. We will be using 2 defensive mids next year so may aswell utilise that factor and let Tav do what he does best, attack. Jack will cover for him when he does go forward.

24 Jun 2017 20:29:50
Sky say Aberdeen want in excess of 1.5 m for mcclean

Agree8 Disagree10

24 Jun 2017 21:43:10
Give them 1.51

24 Jun 2017 23:25:16
£1.51p! Don't rate him!

24 Jun 2017 23:44:47
Johnny Hayes was 1.3 mill and a loan player we could loan them Dodoo or O'Halloran or both throw in Kiernan and Hodson and Forrester while we are at it

25 Jun 2017 02:21:21
Personally I would sign him on a pre contract in January also Walker. We should never give a penny to the other Scottish clubs IMO

25 Jun 2017 08:31:10
Would have to wait until 1 month before contract expires as the play in same league i am sure so its a bigger risk waiting as they could go elsewhere

25 Jun 2017 09:29:47
The sheep have Hibs Syndrome they won't sell to Rangers such is there hatred toward us I hate the whole lot of them who tryed to destroy us, give them all nothing not even our dead wood.

25 Jun 2017 10:08:48
I wouldn't pay £1.5m for McLean if he had 4 years left on his contract. I would offer £500k max if they don't sell which they won't then we take him on a pre contract.
Does anyone not think its a bit strange that Aberdeens best players seem to be out of contract or in final year?
I would rather have Jamie Walker who I'm sure we could get for half of that, £750k would be too much for Hearts to reject for a player they will lose for a paltry development fee if we sign on pre contract in January.

25 Jun 2017 11:32:49
They won't even get a development fee because of his age

25 Jun 2017 18:06:09
There will be no development fee for Walker as he's 24 today. The 'one month before' is only in the English league, not up here where a player can be approached with six months left on his contract.

25 Jun 2017 18:39:53
They said they not selling at any price

26 Jun 2017 08:08:15
Brian 1987 that rule only applys to English teams signing a player from another English team. In Scotland you can do it from 6 months left.

26 Jun 2017 16:14:10
Oh well we should make our final offers and hold firm then. I'm sure they will come calling before august 31st just like killie did with naismith a few years back

24 Jun 2017 12:56:53
According to the rags we are after Kenny McLean from the sheep,

Agree9 Disagree7

24 Jun 2017 14:09:26
Close the gap on Celtic, not with signings like McLean!

24 Jun 2017 14:55:35
Even though his team finished closer to Celtic than we did? Nice one Ronnie

24 Jun 2017 15:13:29
I like McLean but I reckon Aberdeen would play hardball and we'd have to pay decent coin for him

24 Jun 2017 15:49:42
RonnieR9 can you explain that comment? McLean knows the Scottish game inside out. He's better than what we have at the moment. As excited as I am about Pena and the other signings how do we know that they will hit the ground running and settle immediately?

24 Jun 2017 16:28:15
I'll say it time and time again, Mclean is very underrated. Very good box to box player.

24 Jun 2017 16:52:04
not saying he won't improve the team, just think that there are better players out there in the £1-£1.5m bracket with more quality. dorrans for one is a better player.

24 Jun 2017 18:33:02
Ronnie, the age factor makes Mclean worth it.

24 Jun 2017 20:20:43
RonnieR9 who would you rather we sign? McLean is a crackin player would have him in a minute

24 Jun 2017 21:21:02
Ronnie, your thinking is way off. Just because a player doesn't come from a team that perform better than Celtic doesn't mean they won't improve us. Caniggia, Novo, Boyd, McCann, the lost goes on of players that played for other SPL teams and they never made us any weaker

25 Jun 2017 00:28:19
Stu is blu your argument is pointless as there is a list of players who have made us weaker. It's all about opinions and I just happen to think he isn't much better than what we already have.

25 Jun 2017 01:01:43
Your trying to say he isn't better than Halliday, Forrester, Windass etc.? I would say we've had far more players from outwith teams in Scotland that have been duds compared to players who know the league

25 Jun 2017 04:00:29
I'd like dorrans. I also believe he'll sign soon. Can't see Pedro not pushing deal through for an extra few hundred grand, that is who he obviously wants. McLean is also good (not our 1st choice though)

25 Jun 2017 10:13:14
I would put McLean in the bracket between better than what we had last year and not good enough to close gap on Ceptic. Dorrans is in the bracket of good enough to match and catch them and has a far better pedigree and ability than Kenny McLean who is good but not great

24 Jun 2017 08:55:07
Anyone have any idea what really is going on with the Dorrans saga as i read last week that Pedro had rang him and gave him his personal assurance he would be signed?

Agree3 Disagree8

24 Jun 2017 09:52:20
It was a personal assurance that he would do everything he can to sign Dorrans. Not that he WOULD sign him.

24 Jun 2017 10:04:46
Sick of hearing about dorrans. no worth the money Norwich want let's move on.

24 Jun 2017 10:23:16
I think he would b a great signing but can't see it happening now

24 Jun 2017 12:41:53
know a guy whos job brings him in to contact with agents at the club. hope was being lost with dorrans as of middle of this week so don't see it happening. on a plus side, morelos looks a beast in training!

24 Jun 2017 13:02:07
We seem kind of split on if Dorrans would be a good signing.
Some would rather Kenny McLean
Personally I would push a bit harder to get Dorrans and wait another season to get McLean for nothing (I would do the same with Walker)
I think we are going to be left with a fair amount of existing player on contracts that we can't sell so for the next season they will give our squad depth
I think we bring in quality in Dorrans and when some of the dross contracts run out we bring in Walker and McLean for nothing and raise the quality of the squad again.
I think Scottish clubs are going to be sh*te to deal with so let's just take the players that are good enough and want to come when their contracts run down (something that clown Scott Allen should have done)

On another note I said a few months ago that that the next six months would be big for Dave King (as in he had to put words into action) - Well Dave you didn't let us down well done
Feeling excited about the new season
