Rangers board has to take a long look at itself. Why:

1. Selling players on the cheap,
2. Appointment of Pedro,
3. Mismanagement of McInnes,
4. The McInnes statement,
5. No plan B,

Shambles top to bottom.

I would be happy if they all sold up. where is the Rangers class and dignity with this bunch.

Agree8 Disagree16

1. Players had to be moved on the release pressure on the wage bill. Basic principle of supply and demand meant they went for less than they are probably worth.

2. Appointment of Pedro was a complete mistake but his squad this season are certainly better than last seasons in my opinion and if we go on to get 2nd then it’s job done for this season.

3. No mismanagement of McInnes that I can see, the board have bided their time for whatever reason be it financial or otherwise and when they’ve made an approach he hasn’t wanted to speak. What more could they have done other than make the move quicker which may have been impossible unless the resolution was passed at the AGM. This doesn’t even take into account the fact we may have been negotiating Pedro’s termination during this period.

4. The statement was ill advised so soon after McInnes statement from Aberdeen and Rangers board should have held court much like they have done throughout the process so far. Jim Traynor should walk for this. He is not required at Rangers moving forward IMO.

5. Plan B may be to wait until an outstanding candidate becomes available. I don’t see any point in going for someone who isn’t going to blow the fans away just for the sake of getting someone in. Much better to stick with Murty until the end of the season unless someone becomes available that is an outstanding candidate. You never know, if Murty can 14-15 points from the next 6 I think most fans would be happy for him to get it permenant.

09 Dec 2017 11:02:54
And where is the money going to come from.?

We are not in a good place and there doesn't seem to be anyone coming forward to help matters.

Worried. com

09 Dec 2017 11:18:04
Punter. who do you think would come in and buy the Club?

09 Dec 2017 14:23:06
The plan B is Murty, and some people wanted him as plan A at least until the end of the season. Were you happy to pay 1mil compo for mcinnes and his hangers on? I wasn't . Pedro was a disaster no doubt about that and it was he that sold A player cheap or do you know of more? Pedro was appointed by! idiot who should never be allowed to make another footballing decision and probably wont.

This board are keeping us afloat and put 8mil in to the kitty, they have supported the manager as they should. The statement said exactly what most of us are saying, the job is too big for mcinnes, his loss. Is this your first post punter?

09 Dec 2017 14:37:51
I pray we have a sugar daddy out in the big bad world. i have no idea Cuuny.

09 Dec 2017 17:59:45
Five excellent counters Wee Bear. Especially 4. Well said sir. Punter, please stop praying for sugar daddies, it's not sustainable. Bil72 understandable to be worried but keep the faith ma man, it takes time to put money into an ailing business especially given the obstacles they've had to face.

Keep Believing

09 Dec 2017 22:35:04
Got to be said but some of u are brainwashed . the club is a disaster .
Weebear get a grip!

10 Dec 2017 10:03:18
club a disaster?
4 points

10 Dec 2017 10:12:10
If all the shares were on the market we would find a new owner i'm sure of that.

Still can't trade shares can we in the stock exchange!

anyone see the little person lennon have a good giggle at us.

Cap n hand go get Macall

10 Dec 2017 14:46:40
Shares can still be traded, if you go to a stockbroker you can still buy them

08 Dec 2017 19:22:59
really feel we missed a trick not getting chris coleman in.

Agree1 Disagree24

08 Dec 2017 20:35:16
No we didn't!

08 Dec 2017 20:36:39
Aye, Sunderland look like they're reaping the benefits of that signature.

09 Dec 2017 07:58:34
If the board want to walk away with any credibility they need to appoint a top manager Possibly one of the Dutch boys Frank or Geo

09 Dec 2017 20:08:07
Arsene Wenger has earmarked Gio for replacing him so no chance of him going to Ibrox, Frank de Boer is a must it sends out a message that we are a big club and have ambitions, McInnes was safe bet he knows what's expected, the fishbowl of glasgow and knows SPL, De Boer is a big name inter and palace screwed him 4 games and sacked that's just wrong, only way Gers can make a statement that we are going to match celtic is by getting a a big name manager, the club has money not as much as them but we can attract de boer if King and Co are serious about challenging celtic they need to appoint a big manager

08 Dec 2017 19:18:53
Heard a rumour tony pullis being interviewed today?
Anyone else hear this?

Agree0 Disagree16

08 Dec 2017 19:39:26
No, as the bored has already said murty in charge untill the new year

08 Dec 2017 19:44:37
Naw never heard it. Just wait and see, the speculation is just boring now. Murty is in charge and I think if he can get 3 points off celtic he should get the job. Listen to his interviews, he's starting to get fed up being kept at youth level. He will be away to manage first team soon, couldn't blame him.

09 Dec 2017 09:28:56
Tony Pulis will become Swansea manager before Christmas. Unless our board have a spare £4m a year then it is a non starter. That's before a transfer is made. Murty is the Only option now. If the board bring anyone else in at this stage it would have to be McLeish, who knows the club and the league already.

09 Dec 2017 10:04:22
pullis is not the answer, boring brand of football doesn't inspire me so what chance the players/ fans got?

10 Dec 2017 09:49:04
ag broxi
board credibility
they saved us

08 Dec 2017 09:44:32
We can all thank the real reason DM hasn't taken the Rangers Job, The Media and everybody pundits) having to much to say, he's had a real bad taste of it especially in the last few weeks and he knows joining Rangers it would just get a hundred times worse and he's decided he would rather live without it as his family would also get dragged into it, also the time and messing about our board took to finally approach Aberdeen for him didn't go down well at all either! how do i know this? i live in Aberdeen but come from a mad Rangers Family and have supported them for 40 years, and i have a family member who is a grade 2 offical Refree who knows DM well and talks to him on quite a regular basis. d

Agree10 Disagree16

08 Dec 2017 09:54:16
Next. DM decided to stay good luck to him. Plenty of options. If Murty had beat Dundee and Hamilton he would have job by now. We are in safe hands with Murty. Why the rush when most likely have little to spend on players in Jan anyway. Half the support didn't want DM anyway. Let's get the right person and if it takes until next year so be it.

08 Dec 2017 09:55:43
Media my backside, the only people to blame are that useless excuse of a board!

08 Dec 2017 14:15:39
DM has stated he is happy at Aberdeen. Who's to say he would have joined 5 weeks ago? He's made his bed and as a man he has to deal with the regret if any. He didn't want the job so now time to forget and move on.

08 Dec 2017 13:07:35
Stop being paranoid and behaving like Celtic fans with your conspiracy theories about the media, it’s embarrassing.

08 Dec 2017 16:36:15
How could he have been approached 5 weeks ago? It’s already clear that as our previous manager was still on Garden Leave, we were unable to progress appointing a new manager until either we terminated that contract (incurring a significant financial outlay) or Pedro seeks to cancel his contract by moving to a new appointment, which happened on Saturday 2nd December. I wish everyone would stick to the facts, before slaying the board in respect of the process they followed.

Surely seeking amicable terms with the previous manager and back room staff, saving money which can be invested in the new manager or playing staff is credit to the Board?

The Mcinnes saga is embarrassing, but probably linked to him personally feeing loyalty to his current chairman and his preference to work without the involvement of a director of Football, as well as the addition of the pressure he inherits as the manager of such a big club that is still rebuilding

He’s made his decision, we move on, Murty is a safe pair of hands for now - let the Board take their time and we will eventually get the right man for the job

08 Dec 2017 20:28:19
Good post Bearnecessitie

08 Dec 2017 21:26:43
the facts are simple, rangers asked to speak to dm, aberdeen refused, dm then declined to even speak to rangers. he has his reasons, anything we think it is is purely speculation. maybe he thought he didn't want it since half the fans didn't want him. maybe the risk of failure is too much. remember he also knows how hostile us fans get if result aren't going our way. it can't be wages or what's in th transfer kitty because he didn't discuss those. matter closed move on.

09 Dec 2017 02:57:45
I've not been on here for months so I'm not your usual sniper. Admittedly I don't appear in peace either.
All this official/ unofficial nonsense please give it a rest.
Media wise I'd say he has been shoehorned. There was a real chance due to that. He probably considered. Come on though lads. IF a few days ago he said F it that wouldn't of sold papers would it? He didn't have to sit directly with any agent. Unofficially he could of sat with or talked to any rangers man that was connected for a casual conversation. He would of asked the right questions, the ones that aren't openly talked about. Made his decision with that non publicised info and said no. Thought he was a shoo-in. The growth and projection figures of the accounts and the vitality of that hinge clearly didn't wash so he walked away.

09 Dec 2017 08:56:57
So bear necessities your saying pedro walked away with no payment, 3 years left on the deal. So our last 2 managers have walked without a penny, lucky break there!

09 Dec 2017 11:22:26
I don’t have factual info re the severance arrangements Isle of Mull, but he was on Garden leave - so on full pay, and still technically in the post of Rangers Manager. He then took a new job, which would suggest he would be the one responsible for terminating the contract, as he would have to have resigned, so on those terms I can’t see why we would have had to pay anything, other than basic severance - I would expect this was something Pedro and the board agreed in an amicable fashion, that he would step away, remain under contract until he secured new employment

10 Dec 2017 09:42:25
alex 1972,
bang on he decided with his MRS.
forget all the other bull

08 Dec 2017 08:58:38
Was listening to clyde big DJ saying it doesn't matter that we have no money because money will be found. Maybe in by gone years Derek but we have to live in the real world. In the accounts its says we need over £7m to get us over the next 18 months, that was without pedro and his gang pay off. Our finances have been blown out of the water again.

Agree11 Disagree21

08 Dec 2017 12:44:59
TBF Isle of mull, that's a fair point but let's not get carried away with the doomed finances. DK and his band of merry men took a gamble with Pedro that backfired, if they realise their error they'll put their hands in their pockets and get the finances stabilised for the remainder of the season and onward.

We're all aware that the RANGERS BRAND is one of the biggest in football and with that there's interest from businessmen everywhere but until we have a team capable of entertaining and competing we won't get the external financial investment we need to help us get back to were we belong.

IMO, although i could stab myself in the face for saying this, phatboy Ashley seems to be lurking in the shadows with a potential pot of cash to invest in a business that will bring him better options than NUFC ever did for minimal outlay. As much of a see you next thursday he was to us, he could still make things right given the chance.

08 Dec 2017 12:44:58
Big dj doesn’t have a clue what’s happening inside ibrox

08 Dec 2017 13:09:02
The director of football is the big problem for any new managers coming in.

08 Dec 2017 13:30:47
Big DJ hasn't a clue period. What i can't get my head round is why was McInnes not quietly sounded out for the position before it got into the media and did we actually speak to him. Blaming the board without the facts is just belching out loud.

08 Dec 2017 19:11:57
just no. don't want ashley or his money

08 Dec 2017 19:23:18
Your completely forgetting that most likely in March there will be a share issue from shares that will be converted from the interest free loans that Park, Letham and Taylor have put into the club.

That means the loans they are owed convert into shares so no debt to them, Then they sell the shares to someone else possibly bringing in more money and at the very least wiping out £16 million of personal debt to those 3.

08 Dec 2017 19:53:10
In the eighties rangers were jobbie and in came sir david murray, I think business men would rather come in when the team is doing bad and the shares are low then invest and make the team better, makes sense. Murray was a game changer, its just a shame he never got the champions league he wanted us to get, it cost us everything trying to be the best team in the world but I wouldn't change it for the world, best times of my life.

Ibrox bouncing every match amazing players amazing atmosphere, beating the dhims winning trebles. Hatley, butcher, mccoist, gazza, laudrup, goram, klos, negri just a few off the top of my nut. They were the days.

08 Dec 2017 19:59:52
selling and buying shres doesn't bring money to rangers only the sale of new shares does

08 Dec 2017 22:56:29
Maybe I’m different Fod, but I was a teenager during the glory days and remember them fondly, especially Parma game, Amato header in 2-2 game, Gaza diving header in 96 etc. but when I rock up at ibrox these days or count the hours till we kick off on the tele, the feelings still run deep and I have the same excitement in my bones, sure it would be brilliant to be where we were in the 90’s but I’m absolutely buzzing for tomorrow and I started this week flat as a pancake at the thought of Derek McInnes being handed a three year deal. We can get 2nd this season I have no doubt, smart investment of the £800k that we were so happy to splurge on McInnes and a united support behind Murty will see us to 2nd and hopefully we get off to a good start tomorrow!

08 Dec 2017 23:55:37
Great post wee bear

10 Dec 2017 09:43:27
I asked at AGM what does mark allen do
still waiting on answer

07 Dec 2017 19:17:38
rumour doing the rounds it was rangers who pulled the plug because of dm statement last week after the 2-1 defeat making out rangers as a scapegoat

Agree4 Disagree37

07 Dec 2017 19:40:28
No chance or we wouldn’t have approached Aberdeen on Tuesday.

07 Dec 2017 19:43:23
Nonsense. Why did they wait until after approaching Aberdeen then?

07 Dec 2017 19:52:13
He had my backing but Weve dodged a bullet as a real rangers man would not have knocked us back i'm for murty getting a chance to end of season

07 Dec 2017 20:37:24
the question now is who's next? My pick would be MacLeish till the end of the season then Gary Monk, currently at Middlesborough.

07 Dec 2017 20:59:23
I would give it to murty until the end of the season at this point. Then reassess

08 Dec 2017 00:05:49

What kind of planning is that if you give it to Murty till the end of the season? What about potential targets? Who decides who we go for in January? How can you sign people on bosmans not knowing if the manager that signs them will be there when they finally move? That’s not the way to run any football club especially not Rangers. You either give him the job now full time or you get another full time manager in. This isn’t a trial and error job

08 Dec 2017 00:22:50
Apparently, Walter warned dm off the job because of the financial situation. Didn't believe it at the time but seems legit now. If we were in any semi reasonable state mcinnes would've walked away from his contact at Pittodrie in a heartbeat.

08 Dec 2017 02:26:56
I'm pretty surprised that DM never took the job or whatever stopped it from happening, but that statement the board put out is embarrassing! They approached Aberdeen to speak to him, he knocks it back and then the board basically say yeah he's not ready to manage a massive club like us. but Pedro Caixinha was?!

I really wanted DM in and if I had heard right Barry Ferguson in as no.3 because the would've made this squad realise what it takes and what it means to play for our club.

Can't think who else they will go for but I know it's coming into winter and the board better not be flying down to the shop and panic buying some mediocre ex-prem manager Just to look the part.

Their is a lot of work to be done aside from just getting a manager and I sincerely hope we are back on top before they get anywhere near 10 in a row

08 Dec 2017 07:12:01
DM was not my 1st choice to be manager, but I am embarrassed by the statement our board issued last night. It is totally lacking in class and is not the Rangers way. PETTY and CLASSLESS.

08 Dec 2017 08:40:52
petty embarrassing tasteless? really? jeeze lads calm down the board said it the way it was and is they said that at the time they looked at the few who applied! no one suitable . so they decided to look at managers working . went for mcinnes turned it down . rangers say that the fully agree with him staying at aberdeen and know that whoever comes to manage our team must be able and willing to take on everything (a big risk) that comes with it (concomitant) . so if you want to read it a certain way that's up to you but i think as usual the press are just making a mountain out of a molehill once again. from the word go since pedro went they have tried and tried to make stuff up as to who the new manager might be . they got it wrong simple as and now all the are doing is searching through the crumbs that have been left after mcinnes turned us down! rile the rangers and aberdeen supports with crap as usual if the wasnt enough bad blood already they will make sure there is more!

08 Dec 2017 08:53:59
Unless Rangers are incredibly naïve, good business sense dictates that they surely must have sounded McInnes out and received a positive response prior to going public? This would suggest McInnes has changed his mind and hung Rangers out to dry. No loss there then, he was never my preferred option and I believe Murty deserves to continue until the end of the season. This might just galvanize the team to give him a 110% every week. Re the Rangers Board and its lack of business nonce and credibility, not sure we can fix that quickly but a good start would be to get well rid of James Traynor - Walter Smith would have already kicked his arse all the way down Edmiston Drive if he was still our Manager. The man is both poison and inept.

08 Dec 2017 10:37:48
" from the word go since pedro went they have tried and tried to make stuff up as to who the new manager might be . they got it wrong simple as. "

Seems to me they said the number 1 target was McInnes. To me they got it spot on. No one expected him to knock it back, though. Can't say I'm surprised by his decision, though. He's enjoying a good spell at Aberdeen with a three year contract. If he'd come to us he could be looking for a new job before the end of next year going on how we currently operate. Where would he end up? He would certainly be on less than he is on at Aberdeen at the moment. The guy made a decision about his future, similar to Billy Gilmour, except he chose not to chase the big bucks.

08 Dec 2017 11:26:01
McInnes had verbally agreed to join and everything was sorted out, except the signature on contract. He changed his mind at the last minute and didn’t want to leave Aberdeen by resigning, if permission had been granted by Aberdeen he wouldn’t have had second thoughts on it. This has been one big **** up all round and I don’t think anyone comes out of it looking good. Rangers are back to square 1 in manager search and if Aberdeen don’t finish 2nd where does that leave McInnes? He’s knocked back Sunderland and Rangers only way Is Down.

08 Dec 2017 14:03:24
Eldersliebear, your post hits every nail squarely on the head - that's exactly what happened. McInnes knew when and how the approach would be made, he had already indicated through intermediaries that he wanted to speak to Rangers (a close family member and a former player were involved), he then bottled it and left Rangers hanging out to dry. Bye bye McInnes, your moment has come and gone.

07 Dec 2017 17:54:20
DM just knocked bk Gers

Agree12 Disagree2

07 Dec 2017 18:05:34
I heard it's because his number 2 wouldn't came to Rangers, he's a Timmy.

07 Dec 2017 18:07:26
Very good news imo

07 Dec 2017 18:12:22
Unbelievable. What a disgrace. How many times are this board going to make us look inept? What a f#@#&ing shambles. Ridiculous. Did we offer him a 50k transfer budget? Thank god we have Murts. If we had an option (we probably don't) it would be King out for me

07 Dec 2017 18:14:18
Good. Give the job to Murty!

07 Dec 2017 18:14:24
He has done nothing impressive in his managerial career, we dodged a bullet, only thing is we should never have approached him in the first place!

07 Dec 2017 18:15:17
Nothings ever straight forward for Rangers. If Mcinnes really wanted the move he could have picked a new number 2 from a cast of hundreds.

Who do we turn to now Bears?

No real crisis as Murty is doing a fine job. 3 points on Saturday now the priority and I hope everyone remembers Mcinnes decision the next time he comes to ibrox.

07 Dec 2017 18:18:19
Forget all this we are a bigger club etc, Mcinnes has probably looked at the whole situation and decided we are too much of a basket case to risk taking

07 Dec 2017 18:27:25
He is a mug, never deserved the opportunity and he’ll be lucky to finish above Hibs in 3rd IMO. Murty remains in caretaker and if results stay good then 1 year rolling contract for the man!

No Europe for Aberdeen any time soon!


07 Dec 2017 18:35:10
If he is happy to stay at a club with no ambition other than to try and hold on to second place win a trophy every 4-5 years knowing the fans are happy as long as he does ok then he is not what we want good luck to him let’s set our sights on a manager who wants to manage the greatest club in the world and has ambition

07 Dec 2017 18:38:22
Riffy we offered him nothing as he didn't want to speak to us

07 Dec 2017 18:42:34
Good point fifepl. Rangers never even spoke to the man.

07 Dec 2017 19:02:21
It’s the director of football nonsense that is going to put managers off coming to the club. Mark Allen saying that the manager gets to pick the team and tactics but if he wants to buy a player and Mark Allen feels that there is a player in the academy who in 18 months time will be in the first team then that’s the route we’ll go down. A very romantic outlook from him but he’s not the manager and shouldn’t be deciding who goes into the first team, the manager does that.

07 Dec 2017 19:06:48
Doesn't make it any less a s@#t show.

07 Dec 2017 20:14:45
DM made his bed. I wanted him to take the job he was definitely the safest option, all this he hasn’t achieved anything was utter pish. He took Aberdeen from relegation fights to the second best team in the country. He demonstrated a great knowledge of the league and an eye for a decent player on the cheap. Attributes we definitely could have done with, that said his decision shows a real lack of ambition, he clearly didn’t have the bottle for it. To turn us down in our hour of need is unforgivable. His name should never even be mentioned in the same sentence as our great club ever again. F**k DM and the sheep. Let’s hope there’s some big names left on the short list (after 6 weeks there should be) and he regrets this day his entire life.

07 Dec 2017 22:21:41
He only achieved second place due to the fact there was no rangers, hibs and hearts in the league, leaving Aberdeen who had the second biggest budget in the league coming second, a known bottler of big games. They scraped second last year due to the fact we were still finding out feet in the league plus going through a transitional period gaining a new manager, he's not achieved anything exceptional. There is no strong candidates or there at the moment.

07 Dec 2017 22:41:51
I'd go for Neil McCann now.

07 Dec 2017 23:14:37
In the past five games versus Gers and the sheep (with Warbs and Pedro in charge) we beat them 4 times with goals of 11 and 4.

How the hell does that make him our first choice?

We dodged a massive bullet here.

07 Dec 2017 23:58:48
Its maybe a blessing in disguise. Tommy Wright? Michael O'Neill, McLeish? I personally think they'd all do better than McInnes. I'd really like de Boer, don't think we could afford him though.

08 Dec 2017 00:01:53
McInnes is used to having complete control of the club he manages. I suspect he decided he could not work with a Director of Football.

08 Dec 2017 00:11:33
Rangers really need to show the fans they mean business, talk of Davies, Mcleish, McCann are not the answer.
To have any chance of closing the gap we need to do what celtic did by making a statement of intent by bringing in a quality manager who has managed at a big club and knows what we are all about but that won’t happen as this board are so incompetent we will end up with some third rate manager.
I have never felt so down as I am tonight, this board really are clueless

08 Dec 2017 09:14:25
Wasn’t 100% sure he was the answer and certainly didn’t want docherty but he has taken Aberdeen as far as they can go as far as I’m concerned. Where’s your ambition Del?

08 Dec 2017 09:16:10
Bang on Ronnie. He is safe at Aberdeen (just now anyway) why risk it and end up like pedro

08 Dec 2017 09:17:25
Dm knows he's not a high profile manager and realised the job was to big for him

07 Dec 2017 17:43:05
Rumour mcinnes has knocked back rangers

Agree8 Disagree2

07 Dec 2017 17:44:16
Heard that as well

07 Dec 2017 17:52:04
We are a total shambles of a football club (embarrassing)

07 Dec 2017 17:54:19
What a shambles

07 Dec 2017 18:00:44
Not a great loss. His record overall is poor. Murty and mcleish to end of season then re-assess. This buys time to look at other options and to see if it works out.

07 Dec 2017 18:08:49
What about Michael O'Neil anyone?

07 Dec 2017 18:14:16
Get this McLeish gash to F@#k. He is NOT the answer.

07 Dec 2017 18:14:29
wether you wanted mcinnes or not this is a totally embarassing episode for the club. the arrogance from our board is a joke they obviously feel that because he’s a bluenose we’ll bid low and he’ll do the rest by resigning scott allan all over again.

weve no option now but to give it to murty for remainder of the season we showed our hand and have failed miserabley who wants to be a plan b manager something needs to change with our board after 2 great results they have managed to drop a huge custard pie on the club

07 Dec 2017 18:39:37
Colshy that's gash he didn't want to speak to us

Coishy gets -spot on mate. This board don't know how to rumour club. It is patently obvious. I appreciate greatly those on it who have provided finance and kept the club alive, for doing that, but it still doesn't mean they know how to run it. And how much has King put in?

to me we now have an opportunity for our d. o. f. to work closely (as he should) with murty until the end of the season.
this appointment should be announced forthwith by the board who must now show that they are, at least, willing to make a decision that would be looked upon with a fair amount of acceptance by the fans.
having moved forward the board must now without delay move for an experienced manager who can be in place either before the end of this season (depending on the murty arrangement) or at the beginning of next.
the d. m. affair in my opinion was doomed from the beginning with all the on goings re. his assistant who would never never have been accepted anywhere near the ibrox dugout

a reassessment of the whole situation
can then be an ongoing process and a decision arrived at

fifepl your talkin utter dung for us too speak to him we had meet aberdeens demands and we didn't we haggled and sein no scottish club is interested in seeing us prosper they give us no room for negotiation the board haven't learned from previous mistakes dealing with scottish clubs

He bottled it, same as Sunderland and big matches and can't turn a match round when behind at half time. He can't make the big decisions under pressure. Why leave Aberdeen who will adore him for coming 2nd or 3rd for rangers that will always be disappointed with 2nd. I Thought he was the a safe option but had my doubts over what I previously mentioned, this confirms it for me. Don't need someone that settles for second best

Heard that we didn't speak to him at all after baldy denied permission. Said he had gone away last night to think about it. I assume He's bottled out as he always does. Better without imo

SSN - Aberdeen say decision on future of DM will be made by the end of today.

Think that means he is ours then

Well DM will regret that for the rest of his days. Mcleish has to get the job with Murty as his assistant to learn the ropes. Alex Rae and Barry F as coaches. When Mcleish leaves Murty can move up with Rae, Fergie or Kenny Miller getting a coaching roll.
Keep the club in True Blue hands.

hammerite-with those 3 you mention we will be going further backwards i am leaving murty out of that as i think he has done a good job under the conditions

08 Dec 2017 12:45:29
Truebluesotrue, why would Mcleish be such a bad appointment?
He did the same as WS, won trophies with a poorer squad than Walter, managed the national side narrowly missing out on a tournament, went south for pastures greener, probably did better than Walter down there winning promotion and a trophy before being offered other jobs.

Just because he's failed with Villa and others doesn't make him a bad or backward step. Let's face it if Walter said he'd come back for the remainder of the season how many complaints would there be.

With Rae and Ferguson i can accept to a point your scepticism as they're unproven but they are Rangers through and through and that passion in the background needs to be there to flow through the players.

hammerite- mcleish is a backward step he has done nothing worth talking about since he left rangers, probably the scotland stint, he was finished when he left rangers, i was at the matches at the end with him in charge when he did not have a clue how to set his teams up, he had that donkey andy watson with him he was also completely clueless, there was one match when arvaladze ran over to him and asked him what position he was supposed to play, mcleish just shrugged his shoulders and said nothing so shota just walked away shaking his head, thanks alex for the trophies and helicopter sunday and all that, its time to move on

jacks appeal dismissed out for 3 games

Agree5 Disagree4

07 Dec 2017 12:55:32
Didn't have much hope that he would have won appeal, a bit unlucky tbh if may had kept his momentum they would be no card just a hard 50 / 50 ball!
