Kenny McClean being linked with us again anyone else think money better spent else where.


1.) 15 Nov 2020 10:10:37
We tried to sign McLean in last window and his club declined to advance discussions.

2.) 15 Nov 2020 12:46:58
If were after mclean is he any better than what we already have

Kamara davis aribo jack arfield etc?

Jones an edmunston will be sold in jan but there diff positions to mckean.

3.) 15 Nov 2020 13:00:21
Not in january but depends who leaves in summer. Decent midfielder.

4.) 15 Nov 2020 14:13:43
Throw Zungu to your list INTR, also.

5.) 15 Nov 2020 15:42:33
Hes nothing special, think he'd struggle to get a game to be honest.

6.) 15 Nov 2020 15:45:07
We don’t need him
We’re strong enough now in midfield.

7.) 15 Nov 2020 15:54:13
I. N. T. R I can't see edmunson going till katic is fit as we don't have cover at CB. Think it could be summer departure. Just not sure where Mclean would fit. He is a decent player and good all rounder but would rather see Ferguson come in as think he has everything Mclean has.

8.) 15 Nov 2020 16:01:43
Hes a good experienced player, knows the SPL, rare left foot and good competition for Aribo, full international, knows what Rangers is all about - don't see any down sides to be honest.

9.) 15 Nov 2020 16:23:00
Av said before a would like Kenny McLean at Rangers but to bring him in now, who would we take out? He’s got something that out midfielders lack a bit. a very good powerful shot from outside the box.

10.) 15 Nov 2020 17:44:52
Whilst it by no way means he’s coming, he is a close friend of a friend and he told me McLean is aware of interest and is expecting an offer of some kind in Jan. Big blue nose so it’s always a possibility. I think he’s a cracking player. Would happily sign him.

11.) 15 Nov 2020 18:06:31
Alex Ben really not happening, Norwich have him valued at ten million with West Ham favourite to get him.

12.) 15 Nov 2020 18:34:27
cannot, really may be happening, and the boys a great wee player and as TJ says, he knows Scottish football and is an international and a bluenose, of course that will instantly turn him into a crap player in some eyes, because strangely some Rangers fans don’t like players who also support rangers, how weird is that.

13.) 15 Nov 2020 22:04:32
Thumb12. Would u pay 10 million for McLean.

14.) 15 Nov 2020 22:12:40
Yes I think that we should sign him why?, he’s Scottish, blue nose, knows what’s at stake this season and won’t need time to settle in that is the worry that if we get a player in the next window he’ll need time to settle in . Imo.

15.) 15 Nov 2020 22:15:29
Possibly not, but the market is vastly different now, if Rangers got 20 m for Kent? Then yes I would because he’s a young international player, and that is the future.

16.) 15 Nov 2020 22:58:43
Scrambled egg, imo we can’t afford 10 million. For a player no sell on value.
Tom young international player u do know he’s 29 in January
I’d rather take lundstrum on a free, better player imo.

17.) 15 Nov 2020 23:43:11
Kenny McLean is 28 years old, great experience but at £10 million the answer is simply no. Rangers will only spend big money on players with potential sell on. At 28 it’s there is no potential return on investment. Good player yes, but Rangers need good players we can develop and sell on. Perhaps a loan deal and maybe £3 million we could consider it.

18.) 15 Nov 2020 23:49:40
Didn’t say it was happening but he said he’s expecting an offer of some kind. Whether that would be loan/ transfer or even if either would be expected I’ve no idea.

19.) 16 Nov 2020 09:11:19
Norwich are never getting anywhere near 10m for mclean lads, they can value him at whatever they want but no way anybody pays that.

20.) 16 Nov 2020 09:11:50
Agree would not pay 10 million would take him loan deal.

21.) 16 Nov 2020 11:32:10
He’d struggle to make our bench, slower than a week in the jail with no real engine behind him.

22.) 16 Nov 2020 12:02:49
Where are we getting 10m from? Is that the price the newspapers are throwing about?
If that figure is correct, and it's not just paper talk, Norwich are in for a long wait to find a team daft enough to bite?
Rangers will never pay that sort of money for someone like Kenny McLean!

23.) 16 Nov 2020 12:08:19
Man heat bear, McLean 29 in January so won’t be 28 when we sign him,
Alex Ben not disputing what u r hearing just saying terrible deal for gers.

24.) 16 Nov 2020 12:55:08
McLean currently not getting regular game at Norwich, the deal in January would be loan. If Zuniga creates impact over next 10 games can’t see McLean at Ibrox in January.

25.) 16 Nov 2020 13:09:35
Kenny McLean current market value 3.2 million euro

26.) 16 Nov 2020 15:01:17
He would be an improvement on arfield and davis nearing end Kamara will go too.

27.) 16 Nov 2020 17:47:33
Time will tell. Not worth the money.

28.) 16 Nov 2020 18:01:00
Hes worth what someone will pay for him but I guarantee it wint be anywhere even close to 10m.

29.) 16 Nov 2020 18:26:02
10 million what are the people at Norwich smoking? He is slower than a week in the jail.

TT just because people don’t rate McLean it has nothing to do with who he supports it’s a ludicrous statement to make.

30.) 16 Nov 2020 18:29:31
McLean cost is £3m after 6 month loan. Unlikely to happen now with good cover in that area.

31.) 16 Nov 2020 19:51:32
Must admit 6counties although i like kenny mclean, i rate scotty arfield better than him mate 👍.

32.) 16 Nov 2020 20:20:27
They ain’t the same type of player McLean is more defensive n arfield attacking and you use to be a midfielder as well 🤭.

33.) 16 Nov 2020 21:06:13
KJA9, so now we know Coops was an attacking midfielder back in the day.

34.) 16 Nov 2020 23:50:07
He played for his primary school team. 🤣.

35.) 17 Nov 2020 16:23:06
Bankie 😂😂

I wouldn’t take arfield or Davis out the team for McLean honestly don’t see what some fans see in him.

He is no better than McCrorie and I didn’t think he was good enough.

He also ain’t getting a game for Norwich.

36.) 17 Nov 2020 16:39:43
SWMc. I wonder what primary he played for Think SGL is from the Lothians? 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿⚽️🇬🇧👍.

37.) 17 Nov 2020 17:09:59
Coops said back in the day he was top midfielder for his county.

38.) 17 Nov 2020 17:33:00
Lanarkshire guys.

39.) 17 Nov 2020 21:05:00
Coops, like your famous namesake from Hamilton. Wonderful player.

40.) 18 Nov 2020 00:57:52
Kj, how is that ludicrous mate? I'm happy for most players to be Rangers fans, always, and I've noticed over a long number of years that some people talk down players just because they are known to be Rangers fans, now unless you're saying that never happens at all then your the one being ludicrous

41.) 18 Nov 2020 02:10:47
SGL 👍. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿⚽️🇬🇧👍.

42.) 18 Nov 2020 16:12:29
TT it is ludicrous maybe the fans that you are talking about just don’t think they are good players and it has nothing to do with who they support that’s why it’s ludicrous and I stand by that.

One example haliday I didn’t like him because I thought and still think he is utter garbage (my opinion) and I couldn’t give a feck who he supported .

43.) 18 Nov 2020 21:51:46
Kj let's get this straight mate, my post says I've noticed over years how some people react about possible signing being Rangers supporters, that's not " ludicrous " that's something I've seen, so just using words like ludicrous for dramatic effect is in fact " ludicrous " and I said i'm happy for any new players to be Rangers fans, is that wrong then too? Ludicrous even?

44.) 18 Nov 2020 18:53:03
McLean would be 7th in line for a game in our midfield 3. He's ponderous, has no real engine, is Mr Average, will soon be 29 and we're not going to sign him.



06 Jul 2020 22:35:07
Anyone any updates on the investors and if they are investing I'm sure it was supposed to be the end of June for new investment?


1.) 07 Jul 2020 13:05:10
C.V. has delayed a lot of Investment, especially Investment from the Far East. What is more, the situation in Hong Kong won't be helping matters either. This is just a hunch based on investment deals that I am aware of in the US that are delayed for these reasons.



02 Jun 2020 19:20:06
First time posting so be kind

Heard from a mate that we were in talks again for Mirko Maric but they want too much for him they were supposed to want 5 million and aren't shifting.

Just a thought but if we are to sell Morelos why not loan him out instead with a similar agreement that Liverpool did with Kent. Say 1 year lone for 3 mil to a premier club. He gets the chance to play in the premiership and increases his value we buy someone with the add on.


1.) 02 Jun 2020 19:49:00
Because were giving away out topscorer for a season for 3m, and it would cost way more than that for a replacement, would be my guess! doesn't make sense really, does it?

2.) 02 Jun 2020 20:23:39
If he was heading to the premiership anyway

We send him to the premiership for a year he bangs in a ton he's worth a good bit more. Plus the money for the loan.

Better than getting £15-20 million at best at the moment.

3.) 02 Jun 2020 20:51:05
55rangers I see what you are saying but and I'm not having a go, if he goes and flops his value would go through the floor. IMO morelos if happy should stay for 1 more season. Hopefully his time back in Colombia with his family and new baby has got his head straight. He gets the form he had pre xmas for the whole season and I firmly believe with another couple key 1st choice additions with couple back ups in key areas and we could take that league. I would be looking for 4 maybe 5 new faces with at least 3 more leaving then buy or loan a couple decent players in January and 55 will come.

4.) 02 Jun 2020 21:04:54
I take your point bellshilllad there is potential devaluation. I can't see us being able to buy anyone unless we sell and no one will go for anywhere near their value until CV dissapears. Think it'll all be loans and free agents.

5.) 02 Jun 2020 22:58:43
Btw, if we can replace Morelos for the 3 mil loan fee, how can we ask upward of 20 m for him?

6.) 02 Jun 2020 23:28:41
I’d keep morales for one more season sell Goldson for 6million and kamara for 7million that’s 13million to spend. Keep buffalo and hopefully he has a cracking season I would not sell him this summer and We definitely can’t sell barasic we need him this season and his price tag will sky rocket when he has another good season and then he plays as number 1 left back for Croatia at the euros in the summer.

7.) 03 Jun 2020 00:34:39
What if he goes out on loan and gets a bad injury goodbye to £10m+.

8.) 03 Jun 2020 08:47:53
What if he stays and doesn't improve on his after Christmas form his value will dive then too.

9.) 03 Jun 2020 10:39:58
Speculation. Only time will tell.

10.) 03 Jun 2020 11:35:52
maric for morelos why? would ony be sale and purchase. 5 mil too high for euro player.

11.) 04 Jun 2020 07:47:29
The reality is most of us know very little about Maric, I always get excited when I hear of us linked to big foreign striker with hefty price tag, I dream that he is the next Jelavic or Prso but it is a gamble that might not pay off if the guy can’t adapt to our game.

Sometime you might be better off grabbing the guy next door that’s doing the business already in Scotland, less cost and less gamble, if Morelos stays get dykes if he goes get Maric and dykes, but bear in mind Taylor is likely coming to us aswell if rumours are to be believed.

This season needs to kickoff now if not everyone on here will have everyone slated.
Gerrard not good enough
Fredo in a huff and not worth anything
Taverner not good enough as a player or captain
Dave king/ Douglas park not good enough chairmen
Goldson not good enough
Anyone else I've missed

It just gives the Celtic ammunition to have a go and drives any value out of the players.


1.) 12 Jul 2020 13:42:45
55rangers, it's only peoples opinions, we're not all the same. The 1 thing we all have in common, is we want Rangers to succeed.

2.) 12 Jul 2020 13:48:55
That’s right because the value of our players are determined by this forum!

3.) 12 Jul 2020 14:05:28
How can celtic drive done the value of our players.

4.) 12 Jul 2020 15:10:23
Doesn't stop it being true 55 rangers🤦‍♂️. The last two seasons we have collapsed and won nothing. 👍.

5.) 12 Jul 2020 15:34:51
I needed some emojis in the last post was meant more light hearted than it actually sounded. What I refer to with the Celtic is their army of has never beens appearing in the press periodically to slate Morelos Gerrard and anyone else they see as a threat at the same time promoting mince like ajar. Main point is we complain about getting no value for sales of players yet are very quick to criticize our platers. Me included sometimes. Will proof read next time to see it doesn't look as much of a rant😂.

6.) 12 Jul 2020 15:37:14
Coldo we've come along way though if that last step has illuded us need I remind of progres and caxinio.

7.) 12 Jul 2020 16:12:54
I think if Gerrard long term plan is Pool he needs visibility and he has a far better chance of that here than with Bristol City. He knows success at gers puts him in pole position for Pool job but success at City puts him nowhere.

8.) 12 Jul 2020 18:16:17
True 55, under pedro and warbs we collapsed before the season started and won nothing whereas under Gerrard we collapse halfway through the season and win nothing. 3rd time lucky 🤞👍.

9.) 12 Jul 2020 19:33:50
Coldo, do you think Gerrard would have been shown the door if he wasnt Steven Gerrard? Has his name kept him in a job at Rangers?

10.) 12 Jul 2020 20:33:41
Think to an extent, stuck, your right. But celtic had a huge start, and he's definitely closed the gap significantly.

11.) 12 Jul 2020 21:02:14
Agreed hwg55 think our expectations now show how much we've moved on. Under previous managers I didn't feel like we deserved to win anything. But under Gerrard I feel like we deserved to win silverware last year go as far to say we were the better team for a good part of the season. Think this year will prove Gerrard as a manager. Win the league could make him a legend.

12.) 13 Jul 2020 08:23:51
As far as I am concerned, any Celtic minded posters or journalists can try and degrade us all they want, I would say that should be the biggest motivator for us to ram it to them.

13.) 13 Jul 2020 09:24:36
Stuck I believe that 100% the only reason he is still here is because of who he is.

I don’t want rid of him far from it but signings and tactics I. e formation needs to change this season.

A different question guys do you believe SG can win the league for us this season?

My answer would be no I honestly don’t think he will but if we can get 3/ 4 1st team starters in I would change my mind.



05 Jul 2020 10:35:28
We thought for you heard of a club with a European top scorer for sale scores domestic goals by the barrel load has a bit of a discipline problem but has been stand out for his club for a couple of years and is a Columbian international. A growing number of the clubs fans want rid of him to replace him with unproven talent apparently only 10 million or under sounds like a steal. Should we go for him?


1.) 05 Jul 2020 10:54:14
Pointless, showed a frightening lack of commitment during the second half. That's not good enough. No player is bigger than this club, think people should remember that.

2.) 05 Jul 2020 10:58:10
Sell and get a replacement in, doesn't looked interested anymore.

3.) 05 Jul 2020 11:26:17

4.) 05 Jul 2020 11:29:48
Great Post 55 🙈🙈🙈🤣🤣🤣

Nah think we should patch this columbian you speak of and go for a more proven domestic scorer like dykes, shankland, Cosgrove, or Taylor 😂😂😂.

5.) 05 Jul 2020 11:55:50
No I don’t think we should go for him . We’ve already got a Columbian and if we can keep him ( god willing ) one is enough thank you very much . 😊.

6.) 05 Jul 2020 13:47:05
I understand the pressure to perform from fans should be there every club has it part and parcel of being a Rangers player. We would nt have had the European success in the last couple of years without either Tav and Morelos which has kept us in a position to compete. Imagine Tav and Morelos are the players they are being made out to be they'd have zero resale value we would be spending money to replace them and we'd be more than 10 mill less in income. To me benefit of the doubt should always go to the man who pulls on the blue shirt.

7.) 05 Jul 2020 13:50:57
Dykes, Cosgrove or Shankland haven't got a patch on Fredo. I can't honestly think of any other player in spl history who gets as much abuse and i'll feeling than him. Its a disgrace, no wonder he has had a dodgy spell. To scared to score a goal incase he gets booked for it.
I'd keep him as long as we possibly can.



26 Jun 2020 18:10:02
Not to sound too pessimistic but does anyone actually see us buying any other players without selling some. A bit concerned that the money we were supposed to have as investment hasn't arrived yet has anyone heard or know anything? With regards to the accounts have they been announced for submission? Reason I ask is it gives a bit of realism for the season.


1.) 26 Jun 2020 18:23:00

2.) 26 Jun 2020 18:48:09
I want to see some players heading out - for money. Goldson, Kamara, Barker ( unlikely to get money for him) and a few others. I do not want to see us paying players to leave, again!

3.) 26 Jun 2020 18:55:53
😂 I'm Isle of Rum his long lost cousin. Not being negative only reason I ask is Gerrard said he would be backed if it made financial sense to do so. So are fans right to expect the players we are linked with? Or is it a case of be happy with what we have?



13 Jun 2020 12:48:19
Atlantic league being mentioned without us involved bit disappointing to not get the chance. Should we be pushing to be involved chance to get away from the spfl.

What's peoples thoughts on this? I doff my cap to the man for what he's done and do believe that this is for the reason he stated. Does a fans group have the same capital as an Investor and does this weaken our financial position.

He may need rested but he was the reason they were down to 10 men.
If he scores other than hitting the post he's a hero matter of inches. His form has dipped but think the week link last night was big helander unfortunately.

He's looking for a big club and big wage which were never going to pay do we need him anyway squad seems to have bought in to what Gerrard is doing. Anyone think we ll take any more players in January think one of our strength comes from how settled the squad is. If anything karaoke dembele is eligible for pre contract even the thought might send them into meltdown.
