Garner could be back in 3 weeks.

Agree5 Disagree1

18 Jan 2017 18:47:08
Yeah in England. as Ipswich are swooping about.

18 Jan 2017 22:26:43
whats taking soo long with rossiters injury pulled calf muscle or something is it?
shouldn't be taking this long anyways he must be due to come back soon as d need him to be on top of his game

17 Jan 2017 18:45:14
Don't shoot the messenger, but heard we are in for new boy Justin klievert. he'd fill in rw till end of season while mikey is away to saints.

Agree2 Disagree13

17 Jan 2017 20:07:40
Get aff the Fifa mate hahaha

17 Jan 2017 22:52:51
Has he not just signed for Ajax?

18 Jan 2017 10:07:17
A bit of research into the boys background and current situation blows this rumour right out the water, absolute dog s***e!

18 Jan 2017 18:39:00
lolol deserve to have apples flung at ye not shot.

we will not attract any promising players like this, he came off the bench for ajax and caused havoc at weekend.

he is a smashing wee player something way out of our standard.

if your going to scout please be realsitic.

17 Jan 2017 18:33:28
Paredes age 29, watford right back valued at 2mil. Apparently we are interested in him, 2mil no chance we are paying that. Hopefully dave king tells warbs that hodson is a perfect fit at right back and if you want to spend 2mil then we will spend it on a cb and dm👍

Agree4 Disagree8

18 Jan 2017 08:41:34
We don't need a right back, we do need a defensive midfield player, if there is #2m available, highly unlikely, then that is where the money should be spent!

18 Jan 2017 21:50:31
If we have 2 million to spend on a rb then there must be money there
Everybody can see we need players in other areas first like a playmaker and a big cf like him playing for Lincoln tonight if we got him a few years ago lol

18 Jan 2017 22:32:07
centre back's is what we need isn't good enoughnk warbs is doing a pretty good job considerin we need to shore up the defence in the problem areas biggest of the lot being cb's plural

16 Jan 2017 11:59:40
Seemingly Billy Gilmour offered £10k a week from Chelsea once he turns 16. Fee around £500000. Hope it's not true as we really need our best youngsters to come through.

Agree1 Disagree19

16 Jan 2017 13:01:10
Hope this is yet another nonsense rumour and if there is any truth in it the boy let's hope the boy and his family foresee that having a real chance to break into the Ranger's team next season is far preferable to being shipped out on loan for season after season by Chelsea or playing in their Under 19s.

Saying that it would be difficult turning down that kind of money at such a young age.

16 Jan 2017 14:11:35
If he goes to Chelsea he could languish in the reserves for years or even disappear off the radar altogether. At least at Rangers he might have a chance of first team football and a bigger pay day in a couple of years so long as he can force his way into the team.

16 Jan 2017 16:30:08
Course he's going to go for that money. Hopefully add a sell on fee. But how do you even find out this information? Nonsense

16 Jan 2017 16:44:31
The last I heard was we offered him a 4 year contract but his dad has said he wouldn't commit to any more than two years at a time

16 Jan 2017 18:16:18
Eezyeez. He'd be going on a free with compensation being paid to Rangers so no sell on fee could be added.

16 Jan 2017 18:35:01
Like the disagreements lol that's fact warburton and weir visited the family home a couple of months back

16 Jan 2017 19:38:33
The boy Gilmour is just that, a boy. We are getting our knickers in a twist, he is a prospect although and a good one at that. John Fleck was going to be the next best thing but his career did not hit the heights expected. If we can tie him down to a four year contract great if not let him move on after all the club is bigger than Gilmour. If MW genuinely liked to give youth a chance then Burt would have made more substitute appearances giving the likes of Gilmour encouragement to stay longer.

16 Jan 2017 22:35:04
Reading all the posts on this WHEN do any of our kids get a change at Rangers at best 3 sit on the bench then the usual suspects get there 60 min sub appearance money!

17 Jan 2017 07:52:04
Well said Bongo, if we don't have a defensive midfield player or holding midfield player in the youth team that warrants a shift when the one thing we don't have right now is a fit player for that role, then we rally are in a worse state than I thought!

17 Jan 2017 08:41:05
The use of the word "Seemingly" implies to me that this this "rumour" is made up. Seemingly!

16 Jan 2017 23:10:15
It's not a rumour, Chelsea really want Gilmore, I just hope he stays with us. even for a couple of yrs, because if he really is good, he will get his move anyway

17 Jan 2017 13:26:28
All I'll say regarding this is Feruz. Take note any young promising players.

17 Jan 2017 17:00:48
Hindsight is a wonderful thing and IF Gilmour goes on to be the player coaches think he will be then Rangers must take a gamble. If Cheeses are offering 10k a week then if we offer Gilmour 6-7 even 8k a week on a 2yr contract then it makes sense IF teams like Chelsea are still interested we could sell him on for a decent profit, anything over 1m after 1yr would see a good return, BUT the money some top teams are paying for talented young players is mental so 1m is a very low number if the boy is good AND I think he would stay if we could offer him a deal close to Chelsea's BUT it is a gamble and one I think we should take the money we would get now compared to what we would get after he signs is night and day. Thoughts Bears?

17 Jan 2017 21:53:20

If we have no DM to bring into the first team from the youth squad the only other option might be another player on loan from the EPL.

18 Jan 2017 08:44:30
Good point Copland 1, or if there is money available, (unlikely I know), maybe we could buy one that is out of contract in the summer!

Any thoughts on who we could get on loan?

16 Jan 2017 11:48:07
we are being linked with Juan carlos paredes. Watford rb/ rwb.

Agree6 Disagree2

16 Jan 2017 12:47:18
Why? We already have Tav and Hudson

16 Jan 2017 13:18:45
bit of a stupid question mate. Better quality.

16 Jan 2017 13:45:54
tavs proved in the scottish cup final and last old firm game that if someone is prepared to run at him whole game his bottle crashes hodson i can't fault for effort but isn't the answer if were moving forward RB is definetely an area we nd to strengthen as is our whole defence tbh

16 Jan 2017 14:12:40
We need a holding midfield player / defensive midfield more than we need a right back unless young Rossiter is ready to return!

16 Jan 2017 15:21:30
We need a striker.

16 Jan 2017 15:49:23
I can't see this one being realistic. Price of £2m being quoted. I can't see us struggling for cash and then making a 29 year old Right Back (a non-essential) being our most expensive purchase when we are crying out for quality in other areas?

16 Jan 2017 16:08:32
Well Blue, it depends what formation we are going forward with. if it is a 3-5-2 then we need a decent rwb, Tav will cost us a lot of goals if he continues his current form.

16 Jan 2017 17:01:48
I can't wait to see the back of tavs so she hope this true

16 Jan 2017 17:15:48
I'm not supporting Tav OSA but surely when we are crying out for a centre back, a defensive mid and a striker of quality and we had £2m for one position (which we don't) we would fill these berths first!?

16 Jan 2017 18:20:17
@bluegenius - got to agree. If and it's a big if, there is no way we would be spending £2 million on one player.

16 Jan 2017 18:23:50
Tav is the weakest link. Always posted missing.

16 Jan 2017 18:38:08
first of all we need a striker as priority and i wouldn't even class tav as a right back no harm to the boy but he is definently the week link

17 Jan 2017 08:04:06
Tavernier might be a weak link but he is not alone. There are holes all over the park and at least we have Hodson, (who, defensively is a better player), to play in that position.

There are problems in attack despite the fact that we have at least four players that we deem to be strikers but if you take away Miller and acknowledge that Dodoo is a young player with a lot to learn the other two right now couldn't score in a Brothel!
We have some decent young players, like McKay with real potential in attacking midfield.

Where we are sadly lacking, indeed totally lacking, is in holding midfield / defensive midfield and if we are honest, that is a position that Warburton has failed miserably to fill.

Yes, you can say he was unlucky with Barton, but was he? He knew the guy carried baggage but, when you are lacking alternatives you don't just get rid of someone after a spat with an inferior player! Then you could say he was unlucky with young Rossiter and yes he was, but one look at the boy's injury history with Liverpool highlights that he was always going to be a risk.

Yes, if there is one player I want to see fit it is Rossiter because I believe that he would make the difference but right now we have no idea what the state of the boy's injury is because we are being told nothing by people at Rangers.

If there is one position I would be looking to fill right now it is that defensive / holding midfield role. If there is one position where I would be happy to find a seasoned professional that could walk into a role and simultaneously help steady the defence, improve the midfield and set up more chances for the forwards then that is it. Strangely, for reasons that are beyond me, Warburton appears to be happy with what he has!

17 Jan 2017 12:49:41
Personally I think Tav deserves more respect from a lot of so called fans! He's contributed a lot for us and had some blinders in a Rangers shirt. We are struggling as a team and they need our support. I don't get the absolute rush to improve, we will get second but there is nowhere to go beyond them, we will never compete in Europe. If you don't like it go an support Barcelona!

17 Jan 2017 12:49:41

16 Jan 2017 11:42:53
warburton remit at rangers was to get us promoted he done this but as for the rest of things in the job I certainly do not see the improvement he is ment to big on player development but the only player I see in our team that has developed further is mackay he is ment to be big on fitness but do not see this on the pitch looks the opposite on the field ment to be big on youth players yet none of our youth players seem to get a chance even when our first team stars are not performing was ment to add value to the squad on and off the field do not see any value in this squad of players part from mackay possibly rossiter if ever fit and maybe fordingham so not a lot of value added to the squad on and off the field so far
has to get us second in the leauge he is on course to do this.
so looking at the things 6 things above he is on course to achieve 2 out of 6
you can say he hasn't been giving money to spend but the money he has spent has not been spent Wisely

Agree8 Disagree8

16 Jan 2017 13:04:17
Player developmemt is over the course of multiple seasons not half a season. Fitness has definetly improved but like similar teams in the epl it is hard to keep high tempo for 90mins playing the way we do. Young players is 3-5 type plan, if they aren't close to being good enough not much he can do. Adding value is inevitable as the vast majority of the guys we got for free so any transfer fee is adding value. 2million for 22 players is pretty good in my book. i don't know if you expected people like forreter to kick on and be sold for 15mill and a team full of teenagers but its not going to happen. Improving the youth system would be 1 youth player a season getting into the 1st team aquad and adding value is signing someone for free and selling them for a couple of mill after a couple of seasons

16 Jan 2017 13:46:19
so who in this squad do you think will develop in to good enough player two sell in few years time as for youth players who says there are not good enough they surley deserve a chance to prove there are by replacing underperforming if your going to play this high tempo game then you need fast and fit enough players who are going to perform in a unit we got them for free and that's how much they will end up leaving for cause they not good enough to sell for profit on this form and yeh at least 1 or 2 younsters should get into first team a year but so far they arent

16 Jan 2017 17:36:05
Maybe none for an serious profit yet but the point i am making is that its a long game and these things take time. If we had loaned out the young guys and they were stars for championship teams then they would get a chance but none of them have really performed so not good enough yet

15 Jan 2017 18:17:45
All I can say after today's game was a hope a meeting was taking place between the rangers owners and red bull cause that's what this game was all about. i hope king bites the hand off them to take control of our club it's the only way millions will be invested into rangers and not from king and co please.

Agree15 Disagree7

15 Jan 2017 19:09:20
Yes, but we should be so lucky.

15 Jan 2017 21:03:59
I don't think anyone wants to invest big money unless they can be assured of getting rid of Ashley

15 Jan 2017 23:37:44
They won't just invest if they were to get involved they would want full control and nothing less and if there to pump millions in then I don't blame them. But why would anybody buy and invest in a club knowing all the shite with Mike Ashley and this retail contract so can't see happening.

16 Jan 2017 09:41:19
Be careful what you wish for lads. RB would require a full rebrand, stadium renamed etc. If that's what you want then fine. I could handle the stadium name being changed but not our name.

16 Jan 2017 10:49:33
Whatever the official name of the stadium becomes it will always be Ibrox to us.

16 Jan 2017 09:48:46
As much as I have respect for Dave and the way he came in and got rid of the old Board, he can't provide the level of investment Red Bull can (no pun intended).
If they are looking for a well known world wide brand in which to invest and use for advertising their own brand, then look no further. Just look at where yesterday's opposition were before RB got involved. Also wouldn't care what they called us or the stadium as we all know, it'll always be Ibrox and we'll always be Rangers.

16 Jan 2017 11:25:20
lets face it guys the name ibrox i'm sure is gaelic for badgers den.
I wouldn't care if the wanted to change the name of the stadium, personally I think red bull arena sounds better anyways lol.

in fact I don't care what comes before the name rangers if you wanna be Glasgow rangers or the rangers or red bull rangers we are rangers and we always will be.

I would definitely want red bull to buy us as they would probs say to Ashley here is a pay off now go away. And then sort us out with a good bit of investment.

saying all that though guys i doubt it will happen as we are not that lucky.

16 Jan 2017 12:27:17
RB Leipzig, New York Red Bulls and Red Bull Salzburg are their other teams so what if we were called Red Bull Glasgow?

16 Jan 2017 13:04:52
Red Bull Rangers?

Asked to give up a European place as their German club is involved?

No thanks

16 Jan 2017 14:16:17
It would have to be Red Bull Rangers! Forget Glasgow!

16 Jan 2017 14:31:32
You all hoping/ praying for this big investment from Red Bull I see, singing 10 german bombers and it broadcast across the internet is maybe not the best way to endear yourselves tho.

17 Jan 2017 03:18:41
naz that's not how it works we are in a different country to their other club/ clubs so this would not affect us

17 Jan 2017 15:08:20
Not sure that really matters ray considering its not a German company. On a side note, have to say that it's in pretty poor taste these kind of songs are sung by any teams' fans. How about adopting the Icelandic chant if you want to inspire and motivate a team.

18 Jan 2017 15:14:38
It wouldn't be Red bull rangers.

13 Jan 2017 16:20:22
Andy Little has said he'd like to return to Scotland. He is still only 27. Any thoughts fellow Bears? He was a Northern Ireland international at one time. Also Leon Osman was asked on SSN yesterday about earlier links with a move to Rangers. He didn't exactly rule out the idea. A very experienced player and could be good for a one-year deal?

Agree3 Disagree24

13 Jan 2017 17:28:30
No harm to little but he is nowhere near good enough for us. I thought he would end up at linfield that's his level in my opinion and as a linfield fan I'd of been delighted.

13 Jan 2017 18:15:39
decent lad but really not good enough and ha not cut the mustard scince

13 Jan 2017 19:32:22
Surprise by responses

May not be "Ranger Standard" but is any member of the current squad?

Surely the question is "is he better than what we have? "

The answer is he would add to the squad?

13 Jan 2017 19:35:32
Osman also said that if we had approached him earlier in the Season that he would gladly have signed but now things have moved on and he reckons that his playing days are over! He would, most likely, have been a better signing than Barton!

As for Andy Little I reckon that we need to set our sights a bit higher.

13 Jan 2017 20:53:37
A very good Ranger who served the club well but does not have what we require now to continue to take us forward.

13 Jan 2017 21:42:32
Been there, done that. Good guy but not good enough.

13 Jan 2017 22:21:39
Hes actually at Murray Park. he's doing his badges.

14 Jan 2017 00:40:24
If u are asking if little is better than miller garner or waghorn I think he would be 4th in the pecking order

14 Jan 2017 00:58:33
Knocked back a contract at patrick, apparently looking for part time as he has other comitments.

14 Jan 2017 11:07:30
How many goals have Garner and Waghorn scored this season? Not exactly a target that is unreachable!

14 Jan 2017 12:49:31
I meant to add that Little scored 34 goals in 66 games for Rangers. His last year or two were marred by injury.

14 Jan 2017 13:12:18
Believe it or not andy little has joined clyde

14 Jan 2017 13:16:11
Doiger how many games has waghorn started . he's started the least number of games of all the strikers and scored the most goals what does that 10 goals in 19 games

14 Jan 2017 22:16:28
What i was saying gers forever. Not our standard

18 Jan 2017 15:15:26
Little would be 3rd. an 8 year old girl would be better as a striker than miller

12 Jan 2017 21:11:07
Rangers to use Freddie woodman loan deal at killie as a way of scouting him and then sign him in the summer from Newcastle if he does well he has been mentioned as the next big goalie to come out of England so I hope this happened.

Agree0 Disagree29

13 Jan 2017 13:35:16
If he's supposed to be the next best thing he wouldn't be on loan to Kilmarnock with all due respect. Again if he is the next best thing we won't have a hope in hell in signing him.

13 Jan 2017 16:26:36
Kasper Schmeichel and Darren Randolph both spent time in the SPL on loan and are now goalies I would take in a heartbeat. Don't be so quick to judge!

13 Jan 2017 23:30:24
Can't believe it has come to this. You have rangers fans asking fellow bears what they think of trying to sign Andy little. I know it's changed days and we're far off signing the quality that we have in the past but I think we need to push for a bit more than Andy little. I think every striker we have is better than him, although every striker we have are so far off the level we need to be at. TGF kenny miller. NO MORE pensioners or young lone players or out of contract hasbeens. I know you will have the folk who are gonnae give it all the " we don't have money" crap. But money needs spent or we will Just be another Aberdeen or hearts. We have to put a gap between us and the rest before we can even dream of competing with the manly mob.

13 Jan 2017 23:56:28
Can't see us doing business with Mike Ashley EVER!

14 Jan 2017 00:31:07
Have to be realistic when it comes to our budget at the moment we need investment but we won't get it until Ashley is out the picture and that not going anywhere fast so we do need to scrape the barrel for decent players who are out of contract or loan deals until we have the financial strength to spend more don't want to back down to the basement again so they can laugh it up

14 Jan 2017 10:58:36
Gaze I seem to remember a club in spl getting a goalkeeper on loan from Newcastle and then signing him and selling him for 10 million £s if only you had scouts that good

14 Jan 2017 16:54:45
I think I might just settle for having Scouts!

12 Jan 2017 17:09:41
Matt Crooks has joined Scunthorpe United on loan until the end of the season

Agree10 Disagree1

12 Jan 2017 18:10:22
Don't understand this one. The boy hasn't had a chance to prove his worth to the team, not to mention we need a defensive mid. We're playing Halliday out of position there and I can't think of any cover for him.

Hope he does well though.

12 Jan 2017 18:51:36
Your not the only one? It's pretty obv its crooks himself that asked to go out on loan, I just hope he gets lots of games and comes back in the summer time ready for pre season, I wish him well, but warbs seen him every day so he knows him more than I did.

12 Jan 2017 18:58:05
is it just a coincidence that we want there goalkeeper surley we should save the wages and promote a youth goalkeeper and we should have gave crooks a chance Warburton has made some baffling decisions in the transfer market and not playing players he buys

12 Jan 2017 19:02:28
Think he is away to build up his fitness, missed pre season etc

12 Jan 2017 19:31:39
Think it's for the best. The lads confidence is rock bottom after the Hearts game when I think he was thrown under a bus. The important goal from the next 12 matches is to secure 2nd place and go on a cup run. The 2 new lads will likely play in all games and with Windass fit and hopefully Rossiter returning we should be well covered. The objective for Crooks should be to get game time in and return stronger and confident to fight for a place in the team next season.

12 Jan 2017 19:34:39
I personaly don't think we will see Crooks play for Rangers again, he says he has been fit for two months so why has he not had a chance in his best position because Halliday has been rotten in DM for a while- also not fair on Halliday, playing him out of position for such a while, Warbs decisions can be strange at times and even with the two new midfield players coming in we still look really lightweight in midfield, no one to stamp their authority on the game. I will not be surprised to see the clear out continue with MOH next to go although he won't be missed, I've watched him every home game since he came and overall he has not been impressive.

12 Jan 2017 20:15:07
I have to believe that this is down to the fact that Crooks was injured, missed the preseason and consequently hasn't really had the time to get fully match fit. That has to be the only reason, surely, since it is simply illogical for Warburton to prefer Halliday, (who has been pretty hopeless all season), playing out of position when he has a player that has played in that role.

We have to hope that this will get Crooks back to full fitness so that he and a fit Rossiter can be our holding / defensive midfield pairing and we can then either try Halliday in his own position, (if he can still remember what that is)!

12 Jan 2017 21:12:44
Warbs will find a way to play Halliday no matter what because if yous can remember after the 5-1 game he said he knew he had made a mistake by leaving Halliday on the bench as he knows how much Rangers mean to him and he thought it was important to have guys like that playing

13 Jan 2017 11:10:45
He's not very good . Looking poor playing for the under 20s which is full of 16 and 17 year olds. Can't pass or control the ball very well and no presence for a boy his size. Before you ask yes I do watch all the 20s games as my because plays for them.

13 Jan 2017 13:45:52
He hasn't even played that much for the under 20s

13 Jan 2017 14:36:26
it could be more like we had to ign the 2 rather than wi ndass a if it was only fitness he could have been put on crash course t murray park to equal pre season

13 Jan 2017 16:11:32
i think signing the boy was a good idea and we are just unlucky it didn't work out I doubt he will be back.
only seen him once and he didn't impress and obviously hasn't been impressing in training or he would have got given his chance

13 Jan 2017 19:40:30
I doubt that Crooks has been fully match fit so far this season and I hope that he is back a better player and fully fit for the start of next season. With Crooks and Rossiter fully fit then we have two better players than Halliday in the Holding role and Halliday can prove himself in the actual position.

This failure to find a proper Holding Midfield player of quality has been one of Warburton's major failings!

13 Jan 2017 20:58:19
Cannot think of another player so few of us have actually seen play yet who almost everyone rates so highly. Really hope the boy gets his confidence back and returns focused, fit and ready for Europa qualifiers.
