I've heard from my cousin in Turkey that Ridvan is close to signing a new deal on increased terms with a 15mil buy out clause not sure if this is euros or pounds.


1.) 27 Mar 2024 05:33:02
I really hope so AC21? Ridvan Yilmaz is a very good, young left back who will only get better ? He's looked superb for us with him getting an extended run in the rangers team ?I think most of us realised he was a good player ?I think most of us on here at that time in january, said yilmaz was better than josh doig and no doubt for me he is ?.

2.) 27 Mar 2024 06:16:52
Would be good for us, also seen some sights basically telling Galatasary to beat it, not for sale. ?.

3.) 27 Mar 2024 08:46:09
Spot on SWS much better than Doig. And your right Fork pay the clause or get hunted is what they should be told, notorious for being bad with payments.

4.) 27 Mar 2024 10:08:27
Great info AC.

5.) 27 Mar 2024 10:36:32
My star was persistent in his belief ridvan would be good for us. Most ridiculed him. So well done star you were right. Great wee player.

6.) 27 Mar 2024 12:01:51
Yes a few back our players. Ridvan a cracking player.

7.) 27 Mar 2024 12:53:53
So is dessers, ? I'll get my jacket?.

8.) 27 Mar 2024 13:08:12
Too far fork. I laughed out loud that miss for nigeria i seen this morning. All too familiar?.

9.) 27 Mar 2024 14:37:18
Lol aye seen it Dado, shocker?.



10 Feb 2024 01:19:15
Lundstrum new contract will see an increase in wages to 25k a week basic. Two year deal guaranteed and if he plays at least 50% of games in both seasons 3rd year is guaranteed. If he doesn't play 50% club have option for third year.


1.) 10 Feb 2024 02:19:10
If he keeps playing like he is then he will play every game as long as he’s not injured… so sounds like a decent deal.

2.) 10 Feb 2024 06:02:44
That would be a good deal for Rangers and Lundstram.

3.) 10 Feb 2024 08:46:25
Changed days from when people wanted to drive him to the airport etc, Shows you how quickly things can change. Btw I think the guy is class.

4.) 10 Feb 2024 09:06:53
Would be fine with that but I can’t see his base wages being below 25k atm.

5.) 10 Feb 2024 10:03:49
David sure jis basic is 22k ish at the momemt. Goldson our highest earner.

6.) 10 Feb 2024 10:20:16
Andymc. staying injury free is not something we as a club have been lucky with the last 2 or 3 years. fingers ?.

7.) 10 Feb 2024 10:59:29
He's the fittest player at the club, usually wins the bleep test. I had my doubts if he'd still be here last summer, but he's proved me wrong. Only downside is I've heard several times he always raises his game around contract time. Do think PC will keep getting best put of him tho.

8.) 10 Feb 2024 13:21:46
Great news. Bring on #56.

9.) 10 Feb 2024 13:24:57
Goldson being highest earner is criminal imo.

10.) 10 Feb 2024 13:50:09
Just a cheeky wee question folks, not too long ago some were shouting for Lundstrams head and wanting to run him to the airport themselves.

Recently he has been awesome, what do you think has brought on this change in form? Is it Beale leaving or the fact he was playing for a new contract, or a combination of both.
I am a JL fan and was disappointed by his form laterly under Beale. But suppose he wasn't the only who dipped.

11.) 10 Feb 2024 14:57:02
Pacific probably a blend of things.

12.) 10 Feb 2024 20:35:01
Wins the bleep test = 50k a week player.

13.) 10 Feb 2024 23:37:13
Dado, I'm saying he's a good athlete which is crucial in todays game and also to PC methodology, so get over yourself, bleep test is a universally acknowledged indicator of top fitness and the figures mentioned was 25k not 50 k so what's your point.

14.) 11 Feb 2024 10:16:18
sorry but were are you getting that information from sounds like it's been made up and past on to you.

15.) 11 Feb 2024 14:54:12
Bazbear just a wee joke mate i get your point.

16.) 11 Feb 2024 16:06:22
Seeker I'll put my hands up and admit I was one of them. But been a totally different player under clement shows the difference the right manager makes.

17.) 11 Feb 2024 16:41:03
Big dado, Goldson was free that was just about away. We saved £3-£4m+ at the time in a replacement so wages already over 3+ years is fine. Wages, signing fees and transfers are all together now. Players that sign on frees can and do look for higher signing fees, rangers saved cash that year by spreading.

18.) 11 Feb 2024 17:37:10
Not sure he deserves a wage rise just because he has played well under Clement?
He should be judged over his full Rangers career.
Pivotal to the team just now but as we have seen previously he has been poor under Gerrard, Gio and Beale.

His best was on the run to Seville.
But he was honking last season.
If he brings consistency he will be a huge asset going forward.

19.) 11 Feb 2024 18:03:16
Fair enuf bigdado, I'm torn with Lunny, heard a few times he ups his game around contract renewal, but he's second guy on the teamsheet at moment.

20.) 12 Feb 2024 08:55:48
If you play well consistently and the fans can tell you are giving your all then the fans will sing your praises.
If you are not performing well then the fans will hound you.

Such is life.

21.) 12 Feb 2024 11:57:35
Gofor ?.



22 Jan 2024 03:22:26
Mohamed Diomande will be our first signing joining in this window for €3mil, with Gijs Smal signing as a bosman. Hopefully we can get a proper striker and a winger sorted after these two and the treble is there for the taking.


1.) 22 Jan 2024 05:19:24
Fabio Silva was our first signing mate.

2.) 22 Jan 2024 06:43:36
I said on here before the window opened that i think we needed and i hoped we would sign a goalscorer, a winger and a midfielder in that order ?
So with us now having signed fabio silva on loan, hopefully about to sign midfielder mohamed diomande, if we can now sign a goalscorer and a winger, this will have been good business imo and a good window for us ?I believe if we get especially a good goalscorer, we'd have a very good chance in winning the league title ???.

3.) 22 Jan 2024 07:40:16
I said while back gijs smal was the best one to go for really good pedigree and coming outta contract.

4.) 22 Jan 2024 07:56:41
Walter would silva not come under winger or striker? Woukd be very surprised ifnwe signed a other 2 in them positions.

5.) 22 Jan 2024 08:02:39
Silva is just a loan, same as Sima
These will be proper signings I hope.
We can't build a team on loans.

6.) 22 Jan 2024 09:03:15
Hopefully get him bit cheaper than 3 mill. 11 months left of contract i think.

7.) 22 Jan 2024 09:20:28
sws what are you classing silva as, if you want a winger and a striker?

8.) 22 Jan 2024 09:31:35
Diomande won't be 3 mill, that is his current worth, less tha a year left on contract as Paul stated, so try 1.5 - 2 mill we will pay.
Smals won;t be coming until summer, we have 3 1st team squad LB's
Yilmaz 1st choice, Barasic now 2nd choice. Yfeko 3rd choice.

Defence and midfield is fine for now, it's the attack we need to strengthen particualary the wings with goal scoring wingers.

I Can't see us buying anymore CF's this window, will be 2 wingers 1 LW and 1 RW, as well as Diamande, and that's the 4 we will bring in.

9.) 22 Jan 2024 09:46:36
OT, for me silva isn't a central goalscoring striker and more of a no.10 imo mate ? I absolutely think we need a goalscorer and this has to be our priority, before the end of this window ?Where do you see silva 's position yourself OT ?.

10.) 22 Jan 2024 09:53:15
Still believe a cf and wide player will still sign in January as well as Silva.

11.) 22 Jan 2024 11:39:13
Paul I would say Silva is a LW.

12.) 22 Jan 2024 11:46:20
Diomande will replace Cifuentes who I believe will leave in this window. Silva replaced Lammers. Gijs smal will be signed on Bosman to replace Barisic. If Yilmaz leaves in this window I expect Smaldini to come in for nominal fee.
I think we will still sign Striker and potentially Emmanuel Dennis who can play LW/ RW and back up striker especially now Sima is injured.

13.) 22 Jan 2024 11:56:18
I keep seeing names of LB @ Rangers, but am sure Sterling can play there to.

14.) 22 Jan 2024 12:24:22
We got Silva thanks to Koppens connections, while PSV DOF, they had Silva on loan, Koppen has loaned Silva twice since he signed for Wolves.
The young Belgian lad Bakayoko was brought in by Koppen at PSV while he was there youth team scout, before becoming there head scout, he know high quality young players alright, Bakayoko was a free transfer look at him since he has joined PSV, 4.5 mill to 40 mill in one season since joining the 1st team squad.
Koppen also managed to get Xavi Simmons off PSG on loan, now worth 70 million.

15.) 22 Jan 2024 12:25:04
I agree I don't think silva is an out and out striker but probably playing more of a position similar to that of mane/ salah at Liverpool. And before anyone jumps on the band wagon I'm not putting him in that bracket, more about actual position. If he is played as a 10 then surely one of our 10s need to be sold as, if PC has brought him in to be a 10 then he clearly doesn't rate all of the other 3/ 4 we have at the club to do that job at present. I think he will get used out on the left where sima would normally play since he is now injured. I do feel we need another up top but think it will be a loan. Reason being is because I think he will want to wait till end of season to assess that position as the ones we have are all unavailable bar dessers.

16.) 22 Jan 2024 12:35:36
Glasgow ranger is smaldini not smal nickname due to being likened to maldini.

17.) 22 Jan 2024 15:22:02
Yes John it is.

Also I doubt cifu leaves this window.

18.) 22 Jan 2024 16:13:02
Apologies i meant first permanent signings as there is no chance of having Silva after end of season. Also the fee i mentioned is in euros so roughly 2.4mil in pounds.



13 Jan 2024 00:34:58
Can't get my head round this one and makes no sense at all to me personally, but one of my colleagues in the work group chat has advised that if we don't get a lb in before the last few days of the window we will move for Barry Douglas of Lech Poznan on a 6month contract. Sure he's a blue nose and would have been a great signing 10years ago but this is a backwards step IMO.


1.) 13 Jan 2024 01:02:10
Hes a good Pollok boy like myself but aye I don't see this happening. Can't see why we'd put ourself in the position where we'd need to make a signing like that.

2.) 13 Jan 2024 01:06:53
Let's hope the manager and DOF know what they are doing if not it's going to quickly turn into a s*** show also isn't Barisic injured at the moment?

3.) 13 Jan 2024 01:17:47
Be as well signing Rab.

4.) 13 Jan 2024 06:50:21
Nothing wrong with barisic and Devine for a few months.

5.) 13 Jan 2024 06:52:42
Not a chance.

6.) 13 Jan 2024 07:33:11
We are really leaving ourselfs short what if borna ends up injured n we haven't got emdy.

7.) 13 Jan 2024 08:08:10
Emdy, haven't heard that one, who is he lol ? ?.

8.) 13 Jan 2024 08:57:52
Emdys that new up n coming player just as good as left back in the changing rooms.

9.) 13 Jan 2024 09:41:00
Leaving outsells short? We have barasic, devine, yfeko, Sterling and davies as it stands that can all play left back.

10.) 13 Jan 2024 09:52:33
Sorry blue couldn't resist it bud ?.

11.) 13 Jan 2024 13:40:36
History over the past few seasons has proved that we need to be much more clever with our incoming transfers since in general terms, (and as we can see given our wage bill vs Trophies won), it has been nothing short of shambolic.
Paying £3m - £4m for a player at 29 or 30+ for what is effectively a mediocre player, is not the way to go and neither is it sensible to sign a similar quality player in that age Group of a Bosman.
We need to be signing young up and coming players with the potential to develop and by all means be willing to pay £4m+ to secure them, and the same in terms of young up and coming players at the end of their contract.
At the other end of the age spectrum we need to be limiting signings to players with a proven track record, players like Defoe that are both top players and committed to the Sport.
Rangers Football Club has the credibility to attract such players as does our current manager, its just a shame that it has taken so long to get there and that in the interim we had Park in charge of Scouting!

12.) 13 Jan 2024 15:00:21
Gofor are you having a laugh nothing wrong a left back who’s injured all the time and a youth who hasn’t played in like 2 year being our only left bsck options when going for a title? That’s madness mate.

13.) 13 Jan 2024 17:27:37
You really think Devine playing on the wrong side is ready to go up against some of the best RW in the Europa League, did you forget about all the champions league teams now coming into the competition, the lad is talented there is no doubt about that, but he would get murdered in europe playing as our LB, just like king did in the Liverpool game, higher quality teams will definately exploit a young player playing on the wrong side of the pitch.
Barisic is injured, Yfeko is not in the europa squad, Yilmaz is the best option out of all 4 if we bring no one in.
MB is an idiot not having Yilmaz and Hagi in the Europa squad.



09 Jan 2024 20:47:26
Lammers to Utrecht on loan with option to buy for circa 2.75mil plus add ons is only pending a medical now. Ridvan will be the next to leave unfortunately, moving to Italy for 3.5mil plus add ons, not so happy about this one given he was coming on to a game recently.


1.) 09 Jan 2024 22:05:00
Typical Rangers transfer debacle.

2.) 09 Jan 2024 22:13:43
My understanding is no option to buy mate.

3.) 09 jan 2024 22:21:33
brilliant, neither good enough to beat celtic to league title, they're not alone so let's hope more are chased by other clubs

clement has 80% of a team to find imo.

4.) 09 Jan 2024 22:42:10
I always rated yilmaz but to be fair too many injuries at his age already is not a good sign. And as John reported before if it’s true he’s not met most of targets for bonus payments and he’s not in euro squad it makes sense to get rid of him.

5.) 09 Jan 2024 22:56:22
Glad ridvan is going. 2 good games on the bounce does not warrant keeping him. Also getting lammers away is almost a miracle.

6.) 10 Jan 2024 00:54:36
Yilmaz is well good enough for Rangers.

7.) 10 Jan 2024 01:01:24
White horse, wouldn’t be surprised by that his value must be at it’s absolute minimum right now.

8.) 10 Jan 2024 03:42:42
Ridvan hasn't had much in the way of chances to determine if he's good enough to beat that mob. Injury free and a run in the team, only time can tell, all being it we don't sell.

9.) 10 Jan 2024 03:44:06
I agree tt he needs about 20 new players.

10.) 10 Jan 2024 07:44:23
Get a grip Lithium!

11.) 10 Jan 2024 11:15:30
Thought ridvan looked a decent option in recent weeks but given his issues over the last 18 months and rumours he hasn't settled, no loss is decent business.

12.) 10 Jan 2024 11:53:34
Spot on MY Star, Definately good enough for Rangers.
If Ridvan goes, watch his skill level and value increase another daft sale too soon.

13.) 10 Jan 2024 11:57:23
Maybe we never played the lad much deliberately to avoid the bonus payments, anythings possible, crafty if so.

14.) 10 Jan 2024 15:43:16
Mystar we both agree on yilmaz but must admit it would make sense to sell him especially if two linked left backs is a real interest.

Starting XI for Sunday:
Tav Goldson Souttar Yilmaz (if fit if not Sterling)
Diomande Lundtsrum Lawrence
Silva Dessers Sima.


1.) 06 Apr 2024 05:36:57
Tav Balogun Souttar Yilmaz (Borna)

Sterling Diomande Lundstram Cantwell

Dessers Silva

Goldson not at the races for me would prefer Balogun, would also prefer Sterling in M/ F, would mean using Borna though if Yilmaz unfit.

2.) 06 Apr 2024 07:49:06
Wouldnt play diomande. Would rather lunny sterling and cantwell ir lawrence.

3.) 06 Apr 2024 07:50:12
Fork Goldson will 100% start. I can’t ever see us going for 442 either.

Tav Goldson souttar yilmaz (Sterling)
Diomande lunny
Silva cantwell matondo

Tho am unsure who he will play wide.

4.) 06 Apr 2024 08:44:31
Just thinking out the box Storm, aye your prob right about Goldson, just feel he's not the same player anymore. ?.

5.) 06 Apr 2024 09:02:10



Lawrence or Cantwell

6.) 06 Apr 2024 09:12:23
You are right, Fork, and he is definitely on the decline, but he's never getting dropped for this game.

7.) 06 Apr 2024 09:31:14
Yilmaz (Borna)

This is the team I think we will start with, would like to see Lawrence start, don’t think we start with Sima, if Sterling were to play left back then possibly Lawrence or Sima to come in.

8.) 06 Apr 2024 10:14:56
I know he won't RTR buy I would tbh.

9.) 06 Apr 2024 11:27:27
Paul 86 - I wouldn't play Diomonde either.



30 Mar 2024 23:40:58
Great to see a few players back from Injury and looking sharp, bench strongest it's been in months today. Good to see Dowell and Roofe completed warm up as well and are back too although not on bench, although i'd expect Roofe to make bench next week. On a side note thought Dessers was excellent today worked his socks off and took his goal well.


1.) 31 Mar 2024 10:09:03
Roofe completed warm up?, don't be surprised if he needs assessed before next game lol!
Happy Easter chaps.



24 Feb 2024 21:33:18
Best performance in the league in years today, a joy to watch. Could have been 5 before half team. Need to keep that level for Wednesday night which will likely be our 3rd hardest league game left behind the two OF's.


1.) 25 Feb 2024 04:58:21

Like your optimism. Great team performance but put in perspective hearts were garbage, that's kind performance in Europe get narrow win, which is our next major barrier, I'm just wee bit worried playing Hibs, Killie etc. at their patch and they still play 9 behind ba.

2.) 25 Feb 2024 08:50:56
Hi MBW, I would rather look at it that Hearts played as well as they were allowed to, and, I honestly feel that our relentless pressing under Clement will grind down any defence up here. I feel that Hearts got off lightly yesterday, as someone else said, it could've been 5 at HT. Onwards and Upwards hopefully.



24 Feb 2024 23:52:51
For all the stat guys, what was the most goals Morelos scored for us in all comps in a season? Can see Dessers topping that this year imo??‍♂️.


1.) 25 Feb 2024 04:43:47
Not a stats guy ac21, not hard to find out mate, pretty sure it was 30 in 18/ 19 season.

2.) 25 Feb 2024 05:02:46

Our support are a fickle bunch. Less than month ago we wanted to give him bus fair back and now he's being compared to Morelos.

3.) 25 Feb 2024 08:03:02
He still misses far too many. I don’t know if it’s his instinct or reaction time but it seems way off. Especially with the chance in the first half and he was lucky he got another chance with his second goal but he turns up every week and doesn’t hide when things aren’t going his way.

4.) 25 Feb 2024 08:54:41
I personally think he is better than Morelos, as he won't stop trying like Morelos did, sorry folks, I had a lot of time for Alfie, but he let us down badly at the end of his contract.

5.) 25 Feb 2024 09:09:07
Yeah and most wanted rid of yilmaz also.

6.) 25 Feb 2024 09:17:49
MWS nothing new in that, e g Lundstrum.

7.) 25 Feb 2024 10:06:30
depend on your age but a lot of bears wanted rid of mcoist.



24 Feb 2024 23:07:26
Something worth pointing out for the stat guys, after today Dessers has the best goals per minute ratio of any player currently playing in the SPL with over 5 goals.


1.) 24 Feb 2024 23:37:09
AC21 ; its his misses they count not his goals sadly.

Turning down a contract with us likely playing in the champions league to sign with Ipswich who most likely will still be a championship team would show where his priorities are. However, i don’t believe Lunny is interested in going anywhere and will sign a new deal for around 28kp/ w including signing on fee on a two year deal with club option for a third as i previously posted.

I would drop tav and goldson personally but think it’s likely to be
Tav Souttar Goldson Sterling
Diomande Lunny
Sima Dessers Matondo.

Another sign of the crazy english values if true imo, we could sign 2/ 3 players better than Sima for the same value.
