Think Colac is on his way to Rangers announcement soon! Will beca cracking addition.


1.) 28 Jun 2022 21:29:48
If he’s better then Itten then it’s an improvement to the squad.

2.) 28 Jun 2022 21:40:50
Think Colak all but sold on coming to Rangers, just need to agree fee with PAOK. €3m (£2.5m) the fee they asking for apparently.

3.) 28 Jun 2022 21:46:48
I was just told he will sign on Friday, decent source i think he will do well for us and challenging for a starting 11 place, he scored a good few goals in cl qualifiers last season, if he does sign he will do well for us, and i feel Morelos will benefit from someone chasing his spot in the team and i think he will improve, that's offcourse if he stays.

4.) 28 Jun 2022 22:32:58
Will we know by 2pm tomorrow?

5.) 28 Jun 2022 23:46:48
Hope it is not the same as today.

6.) 29 jun 2022 02:03:39
i have a nagging feeling that alf will be gone in a heartbeat, i hope not though.

7.) 29 Jun 2022 02:43:33
If it’s 2.8mil then so be it, it’s pennys for a striker, just get the deal done it’s a definite upgrade on Itten imo, we need 3 decent strikers all capable of starting.

8.) 29 Jun 2022 06:43:58
3rd September Colak to score Rangers to win ????.

9.) 29 Jun 2022 07:47:01
He done well at malmo but the worry is he has been poor in Greece.

10.) 29 Jun 2022 07:58:33
At least we know he has it in him. Sometimes just doesn't work out. A bit like the much maligned Ced Itten.

11.) 29 Jun 2022 10:44:38
Storm, Malmö are a better team than POAK hence why Colak scores more for them as they create a lot more chances, I think he will get even more service from the players around him at Rangers. Colak offers something different to both Morelos and Roofe and is 100% an upgrade on Itten. If reports are true he will be a Rangers player in the next week or so that leaves us to get a GK in if Mcrorie goes, AM if Aribo leaves, RW has to be one of the priority positions to compete with Wright, plenty of time left to see what happens I don’t think Ross Wilson or the board will be sitting in their hands we have to qualify for CL and win the league back.

12.) 29 Jun 2022 11:08:33
If we get Colak i think he will do very well for us, i and think he will fall in love with our club.

13.) 29 Jun 2022 11:24:12
does the same 1st July deadline for 'foreign' signings also apply to European teams looking to sign e. g. Alf? Kent?

14.) 29 Jun 2022 11:49:14
Yes bar72,can't officially sign until 01/ 07.



24 May 2022 09:42:54
John you mentioned previously that Sands was just using Rangers as a stepping stone on his way to signing for Man City. Any news on his move to City? Still can't get my head around how a players that can't get a game for Rangers will be signing for City :-)


1.) 24 May 2022 10:05:21
It won’t be till rafter loan deal, company that own city own New York.
He has to prove he can handle Europe first.

2.) 24 May 2022 10:13:55
No way did he say that lol.

3.) 24 May 2022 10:21:34
Sands ain’t going to city c'mon man. He’s looked ok without standing out in anyway when playing DM. However I thought he looked very good in the dead rubber match v hearts as a ball playing CB, gave me some optimism for him going forward…Jury still out but he has something.

4.) 24 May 2022 10:55:41
Great to see people on here know more than man
City coaches who recommended sands to Gio when he was shadowing pep.

Same individual slaughtered Bassey his first few games for us.

{Ed001's Note - it doesn't matter anyway, City might not want him for their first team, it could be any of their huge group of teams that they are getting him prepared for. They have clubs in a number of leagues now and they work as a group to get players for them. It allows them to hide costs and spread them out to avoid FFP regulations.}

5.) 24 May 2022 10:59:55
Good to have players with ambition and confidence in their own ability.

6.) 24 May 2022 11:14:53
Cheers Ed one, good insight as always from u.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome. I thought it bore pointing out as it would not be the first time they had moved players around they actually never had any intention of putting in the Man City first team. Such as Aaron Mooy, that moved from Melbourne City on a free transfer to Man City, simply so they could then sell him on and make a bit more money for FFP. They never saw him as being good enough for Man City, just an asset to sell on.}

7.) 24 May 2022 11:38:44
Good insight Ed01, thanks. Akin to corporate transfer pricing.

{Ed001's Note - I will nod and pretend I have ever heard of that!}

8.) 24 May 2022 11:41:07
Great info, Ed001.
Never even knew they did that either!
I'm assuming it's "legal" in a FFP sense? But morally wrong on so many levels.

{Ed001's Note - it is technically legal, Udinese and Watford do the same thing and a number of other groups. When the other club in the Udinese-Watford ownership group was sold, (I forget which one it was but Tony Adams was involved in trying to clear up the mess) they found they actually had not one single player registered to the club as under its ownership. They were all Udinese and Watford players on loan! It nearly destroyed the club.}

9.) 24 May 2022 12:05:34
No need to have a dig at john tho as johns ifo is always spot on it mustve took some reading nack on posts to hit back way that.

10.) 24 May 2022 12:10:35
So City recommended james sands to gio when Sands was 17/ 18 and on loan at louisville? At the least I'd say its far fetched. Phillip Sandler written all over it.

11.) 24 May 2022 13:48:01
Sands is a bit of an enigma. There is definitely a player in there. Goes about his business quietly and efficiently.

12.) 24 May 2022 15:14:28
I really rate Sands and can see him being a much bigger part in our first team next season - I think he offers the in game flexibility that we've started to see Gio implement and expect to see fully embedded for the start of next season.

13.) 24 May 2022 15:38:39
Must be Salford City he meant.

14.) 24 May 2022 16:14:32
I love MPH stats and without doing any checking myself I reckon Sands stats will be impressive esp on ball retention. He has impressed me and the massive emergence and transformation of Lundstram is why his game time has been cut. He was viewed as the player who can easily move between the CDM and CB positions during games.

15.) 24 May 2022 16:37:31
Craig please what do u mean re Salford city.

16.) 24 May 2022 16:37:47
I think he’s a hand player to have due to his versatility but hasn’t blown me away yet with any performances. Solid squad member however.

17.) 24 May 2022 19:57:50
this has been happening for years now, i'm surprised how many people don't know this, the group who own city have many players spread around the world, i'm told bt an old agent pal that even agents sometimes have difficulty explaining the situation to prospective clients.

18.) 25 May 2022 12:41:18
Nice to see you posting regularly again Tom. How are you getting on in Croatia? Beautiful country and lovely climate. Nice people as well.

Wales hero and former Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has agreed to join Rangers on loan from Juventus.


1.) 31 Jan 2022 13:00:13
Well that one slipped through.
Good signing.

2.) 31 Jan 2022 13:05:01
I would love this to be true but I just can't see this happening. I hope I am wrong and I am normally optimistic ut this just seems to good to be true.

3.) 31 Jan 2022 13:09:23
Raman at the airport is hilarious.

4.) 31 Jan 2022 13:12:14
is someone having a laugh?

5.) 31 Jan 2022 13:17:04
Well, half an hour ago Ramsey was a dead cert and confirmed as signed, and suddenly the gossip is that he is going to Wolves! Other sites saying Rangers leading the chase. I'll not believe this one until he's paraded wearing the top, and won't rejoice until he plays a game and does well.

6.) 31 Jan 2022 13:18:46
I'm looking out my window looking for jets with Italian regy numbers. None spotted yet but will keep you all posted if i spot any.

7.) 31 Jan 2022 13:19:06
Third Italian journo saying it's done deal- Nicolo Schira

Some shift Ed must be having the day by the way 🤣.

8.) 31 Jan 2022 13:19:25
2m fee for loan and 4.5m buy option being reported.

9.) 31 Jan 2022 13:22:20
Aaron Ramsey has just been spotted down the gallowgate, putting up union bear stickers, shouting . True story.
Wonder how big John Fartson will feel about him now 🤣.

10.) 31 Jan 2022 13:25:48
Nope gers front runners.

11.) 31 Jan 2022 13:32:16
Option to buy? Hahaha he's on 300k a week.

12.) 31 Jan 2022 13:53:10
4.5 and the other 400k a week he is on 😂. Don't think there's a loan fee involved but read we are paying 2million worth of wages to him to get him in the door. Will wait and see.

13.) 31 Jan 2022 13:55:56
The problem with Juve accepting Rangers offer is that about 10 premier league teams will now say to Juve "we will give you the same deal or slightly better" and if he has to choose between Rangers and a decent EPL club, then I'd be amazed if he chooses us.

Xmas present, beat Celtic and we go 4 points clear at the top. Happy Xmas everyone.


1.) 25 Dec 2023 13:20:00
How do you work that out? We are currently 2 behind, both have one game before derby meeting. I take it you are assuming we will win our game in hand too. The game in hand is not until end of January and is at Easter Road.

2.) 25 Dec 2023 13:30:17
If Celtic lose to Dundee and rangers beat Ross county and then rangers beat Celtic we can go 4 clear but what an IF that is.



31 Aug 2023 08:32:46
The facts: Signing Beale is proving to be a huge costly mistake by the ibrox board. He is out of his depth and his signings are terrible. What a waste of money. Results to date: Beat tiny Morton 2-1! . Hoffenheim 1-1 a team that finished 7th bottom last year and lost more than half their games. Lost 3-1 to Olympiacos. Hammered 7-3 by PSV. Lost 1-0 to Killie a team narrowly avoiding relegation. Beat a small team from the highlands 2-0. Scraped through against 10 man Servette. Currently sitting 4th in league behind St Mirren and Motherwell and defeat on Sunday will make it worse. Beale will
be fired but its too late, his hopeless signings sitting on lengthy contracts.


1.) 31 Aug 2023 08:56:55
2Blue at last someone not afraid to speak be truth.

2.) 31 Aug 2023 09:15:34
Excellent post.

3.) 31 Aug 2023 10:37:53
We didn't need weeks and weeks to see that half his signings were hopeless, there's enough proof out there to show these players are poor or on a great day, average.

Now, a great manager can get something special out of average players but therein lies a major problem, Beale is not a great manager.

4.) 01 Sep 2023 14:02:32
I'm not sure that these signings are poor but I have seen nothing to suggest that they know what our tactics are or how they fit in and leaving a £6m signing on the bench also seems strange. Right now I'm concerned that Beale has made a bunch of signings without giving any thought to whether they have the correct mindset to play for Rangers, whether they would work in Scottish Football and worst of all what their role would be.
Come Sunday we will know whether Beale is a great tactician and manager or whether he is just another like Warburton that talks a good game and little else.



25 May 2023 13:59:44
Cantwell is a fantastic signing, great passer, great engine, great vision with an eye for goal. Cannot understand why Norwich let him go, pure madness. Cross between Barry Ferguson and Luca Modric ?.


1.) 25 May 2023 14:20:39
A liked cantwell but let him have a good season of form before we come away with statements like that.

2.) 25 May 2023 14:44:34
So half of one isn't enough? Or are you the type who'd then dismiss a full season and say 'we'll see how he's doing in another 12 months. '

3.) 25 May 2023 14:50:42
Cantwell has been a tremendous signing and you can tell he has a love for our club now, but we get a big offer next season we must take it.

4.) 25 May 2023 14:59:25
We have players who have been good for years and have a drop in form and our fans want to drive them to England am sure you know how it works and tbh he wasn’t great when he first came it’s been recently his form has picked up. Comparing him to modric ??.

5.) 25 May 2023 15:01:41
You don’t win trophies having a good 4 month and it’s showed with our season but you bigg our players up like they are world class wile we watch our rivals win a treble. Like Barry Ferguson really we’ve beat Celtic once this year and it was after the league was lost.

6.) 25 May 2023 17:49:05
Take a breath guys, he has only recently arrived, and in last few games which meant nothing he has been a stand out, right down to the kissing the badge routine.
Let's wait till after the qualifiers at least before jumping to conclusions.

7.) 25 May 2023 18:11:03
Hmmmm?! That badge kissing was a bit cringy. ? There's no need!

8.) 25 May 2023 18:24:08
He just gets what being a Rangers player is all about.

9.) 25 May 2023 19:25:53
big ben 72,naismith was a badge kisser did not stop him and whittaker to turn out whinging creeps.

10.) 25 May 2023 19:34:05
I remember when Laudrup arrived at Ibrox. He was an outcast at Fiorentina and the fans there hated him. Smith let him play in the role he liked most and he thrived on it. He was a player that was hardly ever injured because no-one ever got close enough to him to bring him down. He also played with his head-up all the time. Something our guys don't always do. Cantwell reminds me of that. I understand that Postecoglu is in demand down Tottenham and Wolverhampton way. That would be fabulous news. I welcome the fight next season and all that, but I would much rather fight Celtic with someone else other than Postecoglu as manager. Just my own personal opinion.

11.) 25 May 2023 20:00:03
Please don’t compare anyone with Barry Ferguson.

12.) 25 May 2023 22:28:26
Love Cantwell, gets the club and a big game player.



30 Apr 2023 16:36:18
Game analysis: A few positives for the future, but; Sakala one of the poorest players ever to grace the Rangers jersey. Morelos better off replacing with a block of wood ( good luck to whoever is daft enough to buy that) . Kent worse than useless. Ben Davis or Carter Vikers? (no contest) . Tillman ineffective as usual (stupid tackle) . Matondo a better option than Sakala (should start before him) . The goal, ignoring the disaster, Jota scores from yards, surely the keeper comes for that!


1.) 30 Apr 2023 17:18:50
That's a pretty good annalise mate.

2.) 30 Apr 2023 17:18:53
Harsh to blame McGregor for part of the goal was a great cross which took him out the game.

3.) 30 Apr 2023 17:19:29
Nobody's buying Morelos, he's a free agent.

4.) 30 Apr 2023 17:29:59
Nah, the real culprits for that comedy of errors were Raskin and Barisic! Pathetic!

5.) 30 Apr 2023 17:37:03
You call out Salaka after Morelos and Kents performance.



25 Apr 2023 22:31:51
Cifuentes been touted here as a possible signing. When questioned about his future he said "I think you know that so long as I am here, I will give everything". The same could not be said for Morelos who has downed tools for months! Good luck to whoever buys him!

Looking at Shankland he is not good enough we should be aiming higher and there must be better options out there, I am sure PC has targets in sight and I trust his judgement.

Not long to go then John, decent player but unfortunely he is constantly injured. Any chance we could get any money for him? I doubt it released on a free no doubt.

We don’t need to score 5 or 6 per game! When was the last time that happened and there is no chance of Dessers ever bagging a hat trick.

Who needs Shankland when we have the prolific Dessers ? I honestly think Silva is the main scorer infinitely better all around playing. Dessers is one of the worst Rangers strikers I have ever seen.

His overall play was poor but when the chance came he finished it in style. The dilemma is for most of the game he is slow and clumsy but given a chance he knows where the goal is and is a decent finisher.
