SG confirms Bruno Alves contract terminated by mutual consent. good luck in Italy Bruno.

Agree20 Disagree5

11 Jul 2018 16:00:18
NOT what he said. He said it's in process today. Nothing more. It hasn't been completed.

11 Jul 2018 16:41:12
No he said he’s gone

11 Jul 2018 16:43:27
IS actually what he said! Don’t know why folk feel the need to be so pedantic!

11 Jul 2018 17:25:29
Listen to the podcast on rangers website. He's gone both party's are happy. also says rossiter was the stand out player in pre season before his knock on his ankle.

11 Jul 2018 19:23:10
And he also said Alves contract has been mutually terminated.

11 Jul 2018 19:37:57
Yeh mutually terminated means he’s gone.

12 Jul 2018 11:46:00
My mistake - he was misquoted - the quotes I saw from official channels said 'his contract is being terminated mutually' but having listened to him directly it's 'his contract has been terminated mutually, that's happened today I believe'.

Liverpudlian accent clearly confusing the transcriber.

12 Jul 2018 12:49:49
its ok rfcrb1872 i accept the apology ;)

11 Jul 2018 12:43:03
If the £3mil bid for cooper is not accepted Rangers will activate his release clause. Which is slightly above the £3mil offered.

Agree6 Disagree3

11 Jul 2018 12:54:43
How did you find out about the release clause mate I could only see a couple whispers on Twitter?

11 Jul 2018 13:17:05
There was an article on thisisfutbol which mentioned the release clause. Didn’t say how much but it said £3 mill was very close

11 Jul 2018 11:18:29
Rangers have bid 3M for Cooper of Millwall SSN. That’s a lot of money 😮

We already have our back 2? Would be get a game? (Most likely considering the sum of money) so who would play at the back if Cooper comes in?

Agree1 Disagree2

11 Jul 2018 11:51:19
Strength in depth is required Kenny. Anyways, it's standard for any good side to have 3 good CB's to rotate between.

Mcrorie has been training with the midfielders, he and Coulibaly will be the main CDM's, they might not always play together, but doesn't it feel more secure having two quality players in the one role in case of injury etc?

I have a feeling Gerrard will play 3 CB's vs Celtic and 5 across the middle.

11 Jul 2018 11:53:51
That's what I was thinking but it seems a mute point it seems Millwall won't sell I appreciate money can talk but it looks as if it would take seriously large amounts of cash to get him

11 Jul 2018 12:59:06
Goldson and cooper would be first choice with Katic as an option and for development reasons

11 Jul 2018 12:59:24
if gerrard is thinking about playing 2 CB’s the easy option would be macauley on a free as an experienced cover but if were looking at paying £8m plus on cb’s we must be favouring 3 at the back IMO

11 Jul 2018 14:20:38
Why colshy? Goldson and cooper is 6 million and will be the partnership. Katic is only 21 will be used when needed and will be given time to develop for when either goldson or cooper move on after proving they are better than spl level!

11 Jul 2018 14:49:43
I like the look of Katic, i think he is too good to sit on the bench

11 Jul 2018 15:01:00
gav Blue he’s good but not the same level as goldson or cooper, still young and learning. Look at Celtic last season Griffith’s, Armstrong, Roberts etc too good for a bench? Nah it’s important to have squad depth doesn’t mean everyone who’s decent needs to start!

11 Jul 2018 16:35:40
You can't say McCororie and new lad be 1st pick defensive mids. Gerrard said in interview Rossiter was the stand out performer in Pre Season. He will be back fit fir start of season

11 Jul 2018 18:24:00
If we do get a run in Europe we will need more than 2 anyway what about injuries too you never know what could happen tomorrow

11 Jul 2018 20:05:24
lots options in midfield and defence espesh with players now able to cover more than 1 position ie mcrorie cntr half cntr mid flanagan both full backs

am surprised no-one has raised concerns re our strikers

assuming herrera is out the picture we only have 2 natural strikers both of whom are u23, unproven and not prolific

if we really want to challenge we need a poacher ie defoe

11 Jul 2018 22:04:49
Katic is an internationalist. Cooper was league one, he might be good but Katic will not be on the bench

11 Jul 2018 23:39:37
Paul, fair point on Rossiter

But I would ask what makes you so sure he will be fit for the start of the season? He’s an absolute talent but he seems unreliable due to injury issues. Hope I’m wrong!

10 Jul 2018 22:24:25
Europa squad announced without mcrorie!? Surely a printing error?

Agree2 Disagree9

10 Jul 2018 22:35:52
U21’s don’t require to be named on the list I believe Jzer

10 Jul 2018 22:36:15
He is classed as a youth graduate and can be used Without registering

10 Jul 2018 22:36:42
Doesn’t need to be included as he has come through the youth system and is automatically registered

10 Jul 2018 22:44:55
McCrorie doesn't need to be registered, under 21 and trained with the club / homegrown.

10 Jul 2018 22:44:57
Don't need to name mcrorie as he is a youth player

10 Jul 2018 22:51:46
I read that we can call up homegrown academy players throughout such as mcrorie, rudden etc. Middleton is in there because he signed for us in jan

10 Jul 2018 22:52:00
Homegrown rule I think

10 Jul 2018 22:53:18
Jzer u don't have to name players who come through your academy and r under 21. I. e. Mccrorie brothers, rudden, Wilson etc
We name Middleton as he was signed by us

10 Jul 2018 23:09:22
He doesn’t have to be named as he’s came through from the youth system

10 Jul 2018 23:11:17
U21 players don’t have to be named. he is definitely in squad along with Rudden. Middleton had to be named for some obscure reason.

10 Jul 2018 23:12:05
They can play him without including him cause he is a graduate

10 Jul 2018 23:13:35
He doesn't have to be included in the main squad because he is still classed as a youth player as he came through our system. If he was older then he would have to be included, imthe same applies to Rudden and any other youth player u21

10 Jul 2018 23:23:55
McCrorie is an under 21 player so doesn’t have to be on the list but he can still play!

10 Jul 2018 23:39:17
Think players under 21 don't have to be declared, going on past football manager experience 😂😂😂

11 Jul 2018 00:03:53
Highly-rated youngster Glenn Middleton is included and although Ross McCrorie and Zak Rudden don't appear on the list, they will all be available to Gerrard.
Middleton had to be included in the main list because he only joined Rangers in January, while McCrorie and Rudden are U21 and academy graduates and can be used without being named in the original squad.

11 Jul 2018 00:52:55
According to the Daily Record he's part of the squad, dunno where you seen yours.

11 Jul 2018 01:11:18
Don’t think anyone’s mentioned this yet but he doesn’t need to be bc he’s under 21 graduate. 😂

11 Jul 2018 02:06:41
Where are you seeing the announced squad. Rumour?

11 Jul 2018 02:28:36
Now I may have to re-read this post but I think it might just be something to do with being an U21 and homegrown player? I may be wrong lol

11 Jul 2018 06:51:44
I am sure that it's because the hummel training center, and them being graduates that there names not on list, we signed Middleton in January that's why he's on list! I might be wrong thou, please correct me if I am wrong! 😎

11 Jul 2018 07:06:39

11 Jul 2018 08:38:15
That’s an overwhelming reply and it’s good to see we are all on same wavelength on the homegrown answer 😂

11 Jul 2018 09:31:09
Think it’s because he’s under 21

11 Jul 2018 09:56:07
Cheers lads think I just about understand that now 😂

11 Jul 2018 09:56:08
Did you get that mate? Think it’s because he is home grown but could be wrong. Maybe another 20 folk will clarify for us?

11 Jul 2018 11:49:21
Wonderful to receive accurate information on a subject.

11 Jul 2018 14:40:43
Who was this thread about?

11 Jul 2018 17:52:12
Jzer the under 21 rule applys to mcorrie I think . we’ll actually I know by now and I also know I bet u wished you hadn’t asked 😄

10 Jul 2018 18:13:13
Sadiq confirmed by Rangers

Odd to me why they didn't do both at the same time.

Agree3 Disagree12

10 Jul 2018 20:30:28
I'd guess each deal has different parts that all need to be finalised legally and will get announced as soon as they were done, neither are in squad for thursday, both seem good quality, young and eager

10 Jul 2018 22:13:21
Umar Sadiq comes across as a young player looking to develop work hard and deliver success at Ibrox

11 Jul 2018 09:32:51
Who cares? What’s diff does it make?

11 Jul 2018 10:13:48
I understand from the mediathey both could be added to the Europa League squad as late"wild card "additions but may well not be as they haven't even trained with the rest of the team yet.

10 Jul 2018 16:32:48
Don't know how much truth is in this but i read on football insider, we've tabled a bid of £3m for Cooper.

Agree13 Disagree1

10 Jul 2018 16:44:23
I also saw this today with bruno away we freed up wages to bid for players

10 Jul 2018 17:08:42
Yeah seems like we've waited until Bruno exit confirmed and then put our bid in. Smarter in the transfer market this year.

10 Jul 2018 17:40:10
Saw it as well but Millwall saying no players are going anywhere this summer but suppose money talks sunny know much about this lad

10 Jul 2018 17:59:00
Being reported in the DR also. Looks a good bit of business. Young player who could come here and do well and be sold on for double his fee.

10 Jul 2018 18:36:11
Why so much for him? Does anyone know anything about him millwall are a league 1 club are they not?

10 Jul 2018 19:14:41
Championship I believe Deano, don’t know how much truth in this “bid” does seem strange that we would spend another £3M on a CH when 2 have already been acquired. Unless of coarse the gaffer wants 3 at the back in which case this would mark a significant investment.

With today’s 2 loan announcements I think we need another forward option and another CH minimum but if we can get a load out the door then possibly more, looking forward to Thursday!

10 Jul 2018 20:56:24
Millwall had one of the best defensive records in championship last season. he is a quality CB

Good investment

11 Jul 2018 09:04:02
From what I have seen of him he'd be a terrific signing. No nonsense defender, young, English and definitely with sell on value.
We definitely need another Centre half in there even if we play 4 at back as we have no cover what so ever. Will give good competition and its a good show of intent from the club. However I think we might need to go higher than 3m to get him as millwall suggesting they want upwards of 5m.

11 Jul 2018 09:04:23
He’s been valued at £5m with us apparently tabling £3m bid. Millwall just missed out on Playoffs in Championship after a superb run when Neil Harris became boss early in the calendar year.
They accumulated the most points in 3 successive months due to their outstanding defensive record.
If we manage to get this over the line it will give us 3 quality CB’s whether Stevie G will play 3 or just needs quality cover option remains to be seen.
I’d be surprised if we have actually bid £3m but don’t think we would go any higher.

10 Jul 2018 13:11:18
Lassana Coulibaly deal is done. Officially announced by the club. Welcome!

Agree13 Disagree2

10 Jul 2018 13:56:43
Welcome to the family lassana.

10 Jul 2018 14:29:19
Another who has cited Gerrard as a factor in his move.

10 Jul 2018 15:17:58
I am the only one getting annoyed by this? I want people signing for us because it’s a privilege to play for Glasgow Rangers!

10 Jul 2018 15:25:05
I think you’re the only one follow.

10 Jul 2018 15:28:53
We’ve had well documented issues over the last few years. If Gerrard being here encourages players to sign rather than think twice then it doesn’t bother me personally. They’ll know how big a club we are etc soon as they see the stadium and facilities.

10 Jul 2018 15:31:56
Follow, that’s not how players are motivated these days it’s all about names, money and status. The chance to make a name for yourself as a midfielder under one of the best there was is too good for some of these lads to ignore and I for one couldn’t care what reason they come for as long as they do well whilst they are here

10 Jul 2018 15:35:53
Follow. we. will

Sorry mate but it's 2018, football is dominated by money and corporate business, payers need to be convinced to go to almost any club these days to they can way up their options.

There were plenty players that were 'privileged' to play for us last season and we won nada.

We need players with fight, yes. But that's a character trait and an attribute of a players attitude, nothing to do with feeling of privilege.

10 Jul 2018 16:04:15
Whatever happened to no one man is bigger than the club? Don’t get me wrong I am happy he brings pulling power but I think our club should have all the pulling power we need!

10 Jul 2018 16:10:01
Thats one of the main reasons the board went for gerrard, as our new manager! His world class name, is like a magnet, to possible new signings for us! Graeme souness had exactly the same effect, when he became our player/ manager, in 1986! Gerrard has an iconic name, worldwide! Its brilliant for us!

10 Jul 2018 16:15:42
More importantly, this guy can do cartwheels and somersaults ;)

10 Jul 2018 16:20:23
Players would rather sign for Brighton than any team from Scotland I'm afraid follow. That's the sad fact of the matter. Yes we can offer them things that teams like Brighton can't, but that's not what it's about any more. Players would rather say they played in the EPL with Brighton (sorry Brighton fans) than play in Europe or win silverware and say they played for us or them. Annoying, perhaps. But if SG can attract a certain calibre of player to us that would ordinarily have said no, then so be it.

10 Jul 2018 16:30:53
The fact Gerrard himself came to Rangers kinda beats most arguments right there. We have enormous pulling power and that should never be played down. Ever!

10 Jul 2018 16:47:19
Supercooper - I've never seen, anyone, use commas, and punctuation, in such, a random! Fashion, as you! Every, post!

10 Jul 2018 16:57:28
I think this is a SG plan to buy who we can afford and hire thos players we can't. Next season we buy more players with the money we get from Europe and ticket sales and kit sales . And so on

10 Jul 2018 17:00:28
supercoop is well punctuated, i’ll give him that!?

10 Jul 2018 17:04:03
personally i couldn't care if they said the reason they signed was jimmy bell aslong as it has us competing against that mob across the city i'm happy

10 Jul 2018 17:45:58
Your second point there follow, regarding SG agreeing to manage us because of who we are is a fair one mate. I therefore stand corrected and happy to do so!
Fair play to you

10 Jul 2018 17:46:32
I've never seen known a support like ours for getting their tights in a tantrum over the stupidist things we've had posts about Gerrard should be in collar and tie now we've got people posting it's annoying players are coming Because of him and not because it's rangers! the news seems good just now on the pitch at least! can we not just celebrate that and look forward to the season

10 Jul 2018 21:15:00
R72B brill mate

10 Jul 2018 12:24:28
Hearing Steven Davis is a done deal.

Agree2 Disagree9

10 Jul 2018 12:43:41
Hearing from who?

10 Jul 2018 13:47:18
Can't see us bringing in another midfielder without one going out.

10 Jul 2018 15:00:19
Rossiter is injured frequently. Jack is only just coming back, Dorrans is aging and injured frequently. Docherty is well thought of and Ejaria is a loan. Davis coming in wouldn't be a bad idea.

10 Jul 2018 15:30:20
I’d take him back in a heartbeat! Was top class first time around and will be coming back a better player. He’ll stroll it in the SPL.

10 Jul 2018 11:52:43
The Herald reporting Sadiq and Coulibaly signing deals.

Agree4 Disagree1

10 Jul 2018 13:10:05
spot on seeker

Coulibaly now confirmed on club website

10 Jul 2018 11:38:31
Just seen picture of Umar Sadiq arriving in edinburgh and being collected by rangers officals and hopeful the young mali mid will be next to arrive.

Agree4 Disagree1

10 Jul 2018 14:46:27
Its just been anounced
