With the arrival of Declan who I think will push Wallace and Ped will give him his chance, (prob Cup Game)
The lad WILL give it 100% to try and stake his claim. Thinking tho if he's successful then the Captaincy is up for grabs and imo its down to Alves. Dorrans or Jack. Personally I would like to see Dorrans get it. After seeing him score against Motherwell I thought he would make a great Captain AND he would love it!
I know European Managers don't put as much enfisise on the Captaincy as British Managers do but Wallace is not the best choice for the role. We need our Squad to be as strong as possible and having someone like Dorrans as Captain can only benefit the Team.

1.) 04 Sep 2017 05:53:59
Andy I would give the captaincy to Alves and in a few years to Jack as for young Declan in the short term I would give him a go on the left wing as he said his attacking side is the best side of his game.

2.) 04 Sep 2017 12:38:50
Can't get you guys obsession with changing the captain! We have a captain, stuck with us through thick and thin, good player, when he is done we will change. We have more to worry about than changing captains I'm sure.

3.) 04 Sep 2017 15:39:42
We certainly do mate, the fact that no one on here cares because they don't won't to be seen as the fan who says anything bad about there team. Guess what folks no one said to craig whyte what you up to and look at us now.

4.) 04 Sep 2017 16:39:26
Alves for a year and then Jack for me.

5.) 04 Sep 2017 17:34:48
Wallace will always be remembered for his loyalty and I love the idea of him being captain but in reality I just feel he lacks something that makes a great captain

6.) 04 Sep 2017 18:13:44
Simple answer is to have a "club" captain ( wallace) and a team captain who is a leader on the pitch. Something that wallace lacks imo.

7.) 04 Sep 2017 22:13:51
Why du folk feel the need to put a label on it! There can be multiple leaders on and off the park! I'm sure if things aren't going well in games alves will still go aff his nut even tho he's not got the armband on

8.) 05 Sep 2017 09:51:30

lee wallace for me has to pick up his game as last season and this one soo far he doesn't look to have the quality or confidence to be a rangers player let alone a captain.
i would probs make jack captain just now as that would give him the confidence boost that i think he needs as he tbh isn't doing as well as i think he can for us he is doing well don't shoot me i just think he is capable of more.

9.) 05 Sep 2017 10:11:45
LEE WALLACE is our CAPTAIN get over it and support the man plus the team the manager and the club

There more to life and things going on at rangers than people shouting who should be captai

Changing captain ain't going to make rangers never lose again support wallace support pedro and the club and we all might get what we all want glasgow rangers winning games winning titles getting better quality players in and being the kings of european football again

10.) 05 Sep 2017 14:48:51
Pedro has said we need 4 or 5 captains out there providing leadership throughout the team. As long as Wallace makes the starting 11 he should remain one of them along with Kenny, Alves, Dorrans, Jack and Nico when playing.

11.) 05 Sep 2017 16:14:24
I know Pedro did say it but its one of the things I actually disagree on. can't have different players wanting different things on the pitch. The experienced players totally should be vocal and drive the team on but for me there is one captain and one captain only. Also for what its worth no chance I would include Niko in that group.



01 Sep 2017 23:18:29
Think it would be an good idea to get big Clint Hill back in the fold as if the sh#t hit the fan and anything were to happen to our CH's then having him would be a solid option. Wilson may step up and hopefully nxt to Alves or Cardoso be the Player he was tipped to be.
He must've even now have benefitted from being around Bruno, but it wouldn't hurt having Hill at the Club, wages shouldn't be a problem.

1.) 02 Sep 2017 07:17:52
Naw Andy Naw! We're going forwards now and no backwards Clint was great for us in a rubbish team but now we have a better team so he just wouldn't fit in. You have a nice day now 😳

2.) 03 Sep 2017 23:50:25
I understand what your saying but I was just talking about back up if we suffered too many injuries. I've always thought Wilson was a decent CH especially if his partner was a confident Player. But now that the Transfer Window has been and gone, if we did find ourselves in a situation like that then having Hill around could be useful. I understand what your saying though.

3.) 04 Sep 2017 09:23:09
clint hill was part of the worst rangers defence to have ever played

4.) 04 Sep 2017 10:03:01
Big man should have been kept on another season, just for the experience and the presence in the dressing room venue if his playing time was very limited

5.) 04 Sep 2017 10:08:06
Jan kirchoff is still a freebie as is bassong

6.) 04 Sep 2017 15:54:02
Jan kirchoff would be a decent signing. Still young enough and must have something about him to have played for bayern and scale. Wages would be too high I expect though.



25 Aug 2017 15:45:14
So from what I've read it looks like talks between us and Man. City are still on going!
It seems we will definitely bring at least one more Player on loan.
Our DOF is obviously the catalyst behind such deals, I just wonder if there is a chance to bring in a more experienced Player from City? I know its just a loan and some have issues with this but City prob do have some Players who could do a job and like I said I would rather use any finances we have paying all or the majority of a City Player than sign a Player for 3/ 4/ 500k and have him on the books for 2/ 3yrs. It could go either way, it is a gamble but it is still something that I look forward too. If any Bears out there know of any Players that City have on their books who is up for loan OR any Players who were on fringes of 1st Team but didn't make the cut please let us know.

1.) 25 Aug 2017 16:20:12
Not to worried if their a more experienced player. if any of their players that come to us and have the same impact Roberts had at Celtic I'll be happy

2.) 25 Aug 2017 16:20:44
Would piss ma self if it was Roberts

3.) 25 Aug 2017 16:40:04
There are clearly tiers of players that City are loaning out now from their academy. Players like Roberts, who they paid Β£12m to sign, are a million miles away from the lad we've just taken.

The lads we're looking at are probably at a similar stage of development as Oduwa and Zelalem were. If that is the case I'd rather save the fee/ wage personally.

4.) 25 Aug 2017 17:55:06
Mikel Arteta is a co-assistant coach for Man City too so extra bonus for a good player to come to us

5.) 25 Aug 2017 19:33:55
TheCampbell in my opinion we need to add a few Players to the Squad for certain Positions, and if we are to bring in Players on Loan then doing business with Man. City is one of the better options.
What else can we do! If City can offer us a Player of a better calibre than what we have in our ranks then so be it. If we can get a Patrick Roberts then our new DOF will be doing his job.
I feel its just too early for some of our younger Players and the only Player in the position that we need strengthened and one who I feel will have a bright future (Atayaki) is only 17.

6.) 25 Aug 2017 22:12:37
If never heard of Patrick Roberts before Celtic signed him. Trust in the staff. If he's at Man City he must be a good prospect

7.) 25 Aug 2017 22:56:39
Yea we could do with a few new players in selected areas of the team to add abit more strength depth+we don't know how the mexician guys are gunna cope especially in the winter months+they have showed nothing so far which is a big let down realy need these guys to get finger out and perform +we are better than we were undet the 🍞 breadman 🍞Although along way of being a good RANGERS team+i'll take us to win πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§2-0πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§ on Sunday

8.) 26 Aug 2017 01:01:46
Also think that having the knowledge of our new DOF will have an huge impact on the decisions Ped will make in regards to Players City have available.
Think Pedro will use this information to bring in at least another 2 Players.
Apart from Dalcio the Loans were always going to come in at the tail end of the Window. I just didn't realise how much of an integral part the DOF would be in bringing Loan Players to the Club!

9.) 26 Aug 2017 09:52:40
who ever is in charge next season should look at bringing in two quality strikers and if we have to blow the majority of the budget on them then so be it this is the only way we will get near celtic.
Nacki Wells and Nouha Dicko would be really good signings for our club and with the money wolves and huddersfield are spending both could be available for transfer and at resonable prices.

10.) 26 Aug 2017 11:39:50
The fact is these loans are good prospects for their parent clubs, not for Glasgow Rangers. We haven't got luxury time to bring these players on during games any more. Every premier league game is a grind for us. We need players who match our circumstances. Experience is key here. It is most alarming if Caixinha does not realise this.

11.) 26 Aug 2017 14:01:46
Agree with bear we need players who are ready for the 1st team now especially loan players

12.) 26 Aug 2017 16:20:48
The guy from Man City we got is just one of there young talents but Patrick Roberts was bought from reading for 12million as he stood out for them like a sore thumb playing for them so he is a little different from just taking a young Man City kid from there academy.

13.) 27 Aug 2017 19:07:46
He was bought from Fulham

14.) 27 Aug 2017 21:59:44
Forget about patrick roberts.

15.) 28 Aug 2017 13:11:16
i would like rangers to invest in a proper lleft back.
and a big striker like moult or rooney

16.) 29 Aug 2017 15:31:01
Imagine Moult being mentioned in the same sentence as Rooney! Like Paul Gascoigne and Bamber Gascoigne.



22 Apr 2017 10:35:41
So the Ref that was in charge of the Ross County v Celtic game is one of the officials for the Old Firm Semi-Final! Do not think this bodes well for us Bears as there is a possibility that any 50-50 challenge and the decision could be now swayed in that mobs decision!

Only thing I'm not sure about is what Don Robertson's job is on Sunday? Don't know if he is going to be one of the Linesmen or if he is the 4th official in the Stand?

Anyways I just found this out through reading the paper on Friday but what's your thoughts Bears? There's probably going to be a tight offside call at some point and if its Mr Robertson is to make the call and gets it massively wrong it'll be carnage!

I do not think the SFA should be putting this man in such a position, but like I said, I do not know his job come Sunday. Bad enough that Collum is the Referee in the first place!

1.) 22 Apr 2017 10:51:37
He's one of the goal line refs I believe.

2.) 22 Apr 2017 10:57:03
the SFA are clearly scared of celtic and are a woeful organisation how can it be that they can't deal wi browns appeal til next week but could instantly hand schalk a 2 match ban for his dive its an absolute laughing stock of a set up

3.) 22 Apr 2017 11:38:45
If we're the best on the day we will win enough of the conspiracy theories we sound like that lot

4.) 22 Apr 2017 12:28:33
It's just the Celtic way, trying to put undue pressure on the refs, in order to get any advantage they can. They are just getting their excuses in early in case their world beating team doesn't win.

5.) 22 Apr 2017 13:09:12
Colshygers Aberdeen, celtic, hibs and rangers were all told in advance of last weekends games that any issues / appeals would not be heard until the 27th due to Monday being a bank holiday . Shalke had no option but to accept the 2 game ban as he could have got more if he appealled.

6.) 22 Apr 2017 14:52:37
Pathetic. You can only do your job on a Monday. Country backwards. But the weaker player getting a game πŸ˜‚



08 Apr 2017 14:15:37
I have a huge concern about Transfers next season, and I'm not talking about players coming in! We know Caixinha will have a limited budget and think that any players we sell, their Fee will go straight into Caixinha's Transfer Funds.

I think that out of the players we want to sell or not, we may get bids for Tavs Waghorn and McKay. how much I don't know, but I think that Clubs could be interested.

Then there are players like Kiernan, Halliday, O'halloran, Forrester, Dodoo and Holt, who I think we should keep as the lad can play, but has looked nothing like the player he once was, but give him another season under Pedro.

Anyway, who is going to bid for these guys? Will they take a cut in wages? I do not want to see us paying off players to rip up their contract! Think it would make more sense to loan these players out and pay a small percentage of wages. I don't know if this would make sense financially but please no more players holding us to ransom on top of ex-managers!

What's the best thing to do Bears? Thoughts.

1.) 08 Apr 2017 17:01:10
Andy1872 the players you would keep are the players i would get shot of if we are to improve for next season.

2.) 08 Apr 2017 20:23:12
Total clear out a few players to keep maybe but the manager will have his say so it will be next season when we can judge so chill out these so called supporters do my nut in keep believing we still have the semi to look forward too and another against them if we get one of them i will be happy

3.) 09 Apr 2017 20:52:50
Ronnie it was only Holt i said about keeping fot at least 1 more season.

Another reason for King and the Board to go for McInnes is the sheer fact that he is imo the vast majority of our Supports choice. This means that if the Club were to opt for someone else and he does not take the Club forward or worse he fails miserably then the flak King and the Board would get would be massive!
McInnes is tge obvious Candidate! He has shown consistency, and has the huge benefit of not only knowing our game but knows OUR Squad AND the other Teams! This is Knowledge that would take a Pardew etc a fair amount of time to get up to the level of a Manager such as McInnes! Even at yhid moment you coukd ask Del how he would like to set the Team up, WHO he would keep AND WHO he doesn't rate and prob get rid of.
He could probably do this with a fair amount of confidence. Ask one of the other Candidates and all would need 4-6wks minimum to get the slightest clue!
Only other Man who could combine close to this kind of thing is Wright who for me if he git the job, I would be fine with! The big man deserves a crack at Managing a big Club. I het a good feeling about him, I think he could come in and the Playerd would take to him and end up busting a gut for him. Think BOTH have got that Walter Smith vibe.

Another thing. Who knows the situation regarding the Lads on Loan? Are they ALL on Loan for a full Season or are all/ some coming back to the Club in January.
Thoughts on what the chances of any even getting a chance to prove themselves under new Manager?
Don't know how much will be available for Players in Jan but think offloading a few for an actual Fee be it minimal would be wise. Can see McLean arriving if McInnes gets in and maybe a couple of loans.

1.) 11 Nov 2017 10:25:16
your whole post seems to be its okay for mcinnes to get the job if he can bring in mclean and a couple of loan players is the sheep the benchmark we have got to, time to move on from mcinnes it ain't going to happen if it did and he failed it would come back and haunt us

2.) 11 Nov 2017 11:14:42
No. I just mentioned that McLean may come in Jan and as for the Loans, if finances are stretched then Loans prob makes sense although we may have some loans coming back! Dunno how Dodoo has been doing or if he will be back Jan.
Sheep are not the benchmark but 2nd this Year is a minimum!

3.) 11 Nov 2017 12:48:25
Andy your consistent, as I never usually agree with you. I don't think there are as many as you think want mcinnes

4.) 11 Nov 2017 13:34:54
Andy you have far too much time on your hands mate.

5.) 11 Nov 2017 14:07:47
McLean is crap and isn't the kind of players that will get us closer to Celtic we need quality not ok imo

6.) 11 Nov 2017 14:24:43
I’d said the other day I estimated around 50% want McInnes and the other 50% were split between all the other candidates. I’d say the longer it’s going the more people are swaying away from DM. The truth is, we have no idea of the budgets involved. There are cheaper options than McInnes and more expensive options including the budgets they would be looking for transfers and wages etc.

At the end of the day the board members have put their money in and they will make the choice they think is best. No one of them would make an intentionally bad choice.

They may well decide that DM is the best option, if they do I’m behind him 100% but I’d love an appointment with more intent, Gio van Bronckhorst or the like but the main think I want from any appointment is someone who can develop our young players and who can set a team up properly. oh wait, that could be Graeme Murty!

7.) 11 Nov 2017 17:17:35
But a poll on here says more fans want Murty if it was a two horse race between him and McInnes. Kind of damages your assertions a wee bit, Wee Bear.



11 Nov 2017 09:04:29
If it is McCinnes that the Board have decided to go for yhen I'm thinking that it may be the compensation fee that is being negotiated. We may be trying to get it reduced OR negotiating the terms of Payment i:e how much up front and then how much paid over X amount of time? THIS can be the only reason that I can think of over why the appointment of McInnes may be taking some time to announce! what's your thoughts Bears IF Del is the Man that we want then things like bringing him in after this Game or that Game to me is a bit lame as whoever we want we want in asap!
Also talk of Gio must stop! He is Managing a Team who are financially sorted, are in the CL AND as far as I'm aware Feyenord are the Team he grew up Supporting AND the Team that he started with! I'm sure that if he was at any other Club then coming to Rangers would appeal to him massively.
Said before but to be able to bring in a Manager who is up to date with Scottish Football AND our Club would be of huge benefit! To me that OBVISOULY means that we MUST bring either McInnes or Wright.
Financially it makes sense too regarding wages as I would think that most other British Managers would Command more IF the other Candidates are the Names neing mentioned!
Anyways in my opinion the only other Names that should be mentioned for the Position ARE Coleman and possibly Redknapp, I really rate Coleman and have always been a fan of Redknapp but would understand the flak for putting him forward BUT both I think understand how big our Club is!
Money wise tho I think they may end up getting at least double the amount McInnes or Wright could get! , .



08 Nov 2017 17:16:21
Was Reading about up coming Game with Holland, Malky Mackay was saying that it was a big blow that Griffiths was possibly out!
Really trying not sound if I'm wearing Blue Specs BUT is this not a Game were we should be using Young Un-Capped Players at least Players like Cummings Rhodes etc also B. McKay! AND I know this'll sound biased but why not McCrorie! We're CRYING OUT fot CH's if I knew any young Scottish CH's Playing anywhere I'd recommend them! Give Mackay his due he has picked Cummings etc BUT do not know why he's mentioning Griffiths as I said the young lads should be getting used.
But expecially McCrorie get this lad on the Pitch and the more games the better. Funny enough him and Danny done ok against Thistle and Danny took the job of the most experienced CH on well. Possible role reversal from the Weir/ Wilson pairing and if those two were to establish themselves after a couple of Seasons Playing week in week out, then International Call Ups make sense and this Dutch game should be used if not then the next friendly definitely if McCrorie has at least been involved in the 1st Team.

1.) 08 Nov 2017 19:25:23
Scotland should play with teefal heid, cummings and moult up top and a decent strong mf. Obviously when all the are available.

2.) 08 Nov 2017 20:47:43
I was thinking the same when I read about the CH crisis.
defence should be Tierney Robertson McCrorie Wilson.

They have played well together the past couple of games so why not try them out?

Very young confident back 4 which I in would be very good together. Obviously a proper RB when possible as Tierney is best down the left

3.) 08 Nov 2017 20:53:54

4.) 08 Nov 2017 21:01:44
has moult suddenly become eligible to play for Scotland?

5.) 08 Nov 2017 21:07:54
What about McCrorie and Souttar of Hearts as the Scotland CB partnership moving forwards? Need to find a RB to allow Tierney to his natural LB and move Robertson to LW then our first 11 looks ok to me?

Also a five or six year deal for McCrorie should be getting tied up ASAP.

6.) 08 Nov 2017 22:38:17
Burke should be LW no robertson

7.) 09 Nov 2017 04:20:21
Oh well assumed he was Scottish - my bad lol

8.) 09 Nov 2017 08:47:34
McCrorie and Soutar would be a great partnership at centre half for Scotland wee bear, great shout. Can't help but think whoever takes the job full time will still persist with the likes of Berra, Mulgrew, Hanley etc. Tierney looks like he could play anywhere, including centre half, why not a back 3? Tierney left side of the 3 and Roberton at left wing back. A lot of young players but bags of experience, particularly Tierney and Roberton.

9.) 09 Nov 2017 08:40:03
Moult who is English and not eligible to play for Scotland?

10.) 09 Nov 2017 08:47:22
Camoo, moult is english 😁

11.) 09 Nov 2017 08:54:06
Has everyone forgottwn Calum Paterson is a right back. Paterson, souttar, mcrorie, tierney is a good sounding back 4.

12.) 09 Nov 2017 14:27:17
Have any of you actually seen Souttar play? He is terrible, regardless of his age. No way should he be anywhere near the Scotland team. McCrorie should be fast tracked though

13.) 09 Nov 2017 15:12:34
For those of you who haven't seen that I've already put my hands up for making a mistake on Moult's nationality. see above - I already stand corrected :-)

14.) 10 Nov 2017 06:24:09
McCrorie needs to establish himself in the Rangers first team before getting a call up for the national squad. No way was he ever going to be thrown into the national team after half a dozen appearances for us



08 Nov 2017 10:23:11
Ok Bear, want to get my opinion across and if anyone has any info etc then pre tell.
SO, I like most like Murty BUT I keep hearing people saying that he should get the Job, I'm not saying that he shouldn't get the Job but as far as I'm aware Murty doesn't want the Position FULL TIME! I do not think he would actually say the words I do not want to Manage Rangers Full Time! He will cocentrate on keeping the Players focused, that they remain up-beat, positive and that he keeps the GROUP together! We do not need any Players having an negative effect in Dressing Room or Training.
I do think that Murty will be able to keep the Squad ticking over AND WILL be talking to Players individually and being as open and honest as he can regarding his duties as Caretaker Manager i:e Alves on bench for thistle Game, think he would have man managed and said the right thing at right time.
Graeme is more than happy to fill in until a new Manager is found.
The experience will do wonders and look great on his C. V if he were to ever go for a Managers Position elsewhere.
For me though, it is too much to ask Murty to take on the Gers Job! It would be his FIRST Managerial Position! I think he IS good at talking to tge Squad BUT I get the feeling that for him to go from that to someone that has a bit of Walter about them and let's be honest we all want a Manager that Yeah sure can put an arm round a Players shoulder etc BUT ALSO a Manager that the Players will not want to be on the recieving end for not putting a shift in, not fighting for the ball and basically not fighting for the Shirt as EVERY TEAM that faces US raise their game, Its their Cup Final! They might do it 3-4 times a Season were as we NEED to do it in EVERY SINGLE GAME!
I don't think Murty can be this kind of Manager at Ibrox!
I do think McInnes CAN! I think that there are certain Managers out there who were lucky enough to have been Managed by certain Men and picked up their style tactically, and picked up their Style which under Smith is also something that you cannot just learn but I think you need to be a certain type of Person (Character) and I do 100% think that McInnes has that in him! And he is getting better at Managing the longer (Older) he gets. Anyways there are Managers out there who are good at what they do due to the Managers the Played under. The FACT McInnes Played and Supports the Gers are a massive plus! He knows the Lge and the Players/ Staff.
Most importantly he TOTALLY UNDERSTANDS how the Club is viewed by other Fans/ Clubs and how we the Support deal with it and LOVE the fact that NO-ONE LIKES US!
Ask any Player/ Manager/ Fan (Outwith Gers Supporters) which Team they would like to turn over and every single one will say the same! WHO'S THE BIGGEST!
If Del Boy doesn't get it tgen give it to Big Tommy Wright! Can see Players running through brick walls he's done great things at St. Jstne and been consistent!
He has earned a move up the ladder and fair enough the Gers Job is a big jump but Ticks a lot of boxes Lge, Gers Team etc.
So looks and hope to see McInnes at bottom of the Marble Staircase getting his Pic taken. A foreign Manager will use the remainder of Season as an Learning Curve He'll tell the Support that he is acclimatising etc etc ladeeda, NO! F#$@ THAT! Del or Tommy can come in and hit ground running! Both are right now at very least drawing up a list of Potential Signings AND who they do not rate at Ibrox!
Hope McInnes trys to bring the Young Lad Wright to Ibrox! Can't mind his first Name but the lad looks like one for the future.
THOUGHTS BEARS! If not McInnes then Wright!

Never read the post but hit disagree for the shear length of it. If I want to read a story I’ll buy a book mate

Every team raises their game against us? Take it you didn’t watch the game on Saturday when a truly awful Thistle side came and did nothing. It’s a myth that every side raises their game against us and we have seen some truly awful teams come to Ibrox and contribute nothing

Really do feel for Neil McCann. The incident involving Stokes was an utter disgrace!
Read the Paper Today and the Ref BAWZED it right up ;) to book BOTH Players is absurd! And is further evidence that the standard of Refereeing up here is shocking and at the end of the day is actually going to cost people their jobs!
Something has to be done and the only quick fix is poss bringing in Pro-Refs from abroad for the Big Games OR all Prem fixtures AND Cup Games until our Refs are up to scratch.
If Dundee were to go down or are in Play-Off because they are 1 point behind, you could hypothetically point to tgis moment as that smelly RAT Stokes set up the winning goal!

No matter who we bring in be it Jan or next Summer, Charlies wages would be a huge factor!
We need to offload some Players and get them off the wage bill! The Players who are prob top of the list are, Forrester. Herrera. and Pena.
O'halloran. Dodoo. and Halliday may be given a chance to get back into Squad?
Think we'll keep Elton but as for wee Dalcio it looks as if he'll go back to Benfica. Nemane may have a chance, could be worth a punt as come Jan he's in his last 6mths and if he is on wages that reflect his position and doesn't expect silly Man. City money he may stay but it'll be up to the new Manager.
Halliday WILL be thinking he's been given another chance and I hope he takes it (Squad Player)

If there's any truth in the fact that we are not going for McInnes due to money then PLEASE NOT MCLAREN!
Surely McInnes would be on lower wages than him anyways!
If not McInnes then we must go for Wright.

IF Kennedy were to buy the Club I could see a few of the current Board Members being kept on. Also in my opinion Kennedy being a business man he can see that Rangers IS a long term investment. With sufficient investment and having the right men in charge to bring in Players not only to go straight into the Squad but also to get up and coming Youngsters and have the people at Ibrox to develop these Players, then again from an investment point of view then by investing X amount and achieving the goal of Qualifying for the Champions League then finacially he would be on to a winner. Not saying that Qualifying once would finacially turn the numbers round completely!
Also and this IS wishful thinking BUT if Scottish Teams could over the next 3-4 years get through the Qualifying Rounds and get into the Europa Group Sections then we could improve our Co-Efficiant and poss find ourselves with our actual League Champs going straight into CL and our Runners up into CL Qualifying Rounds! (Dont all jump down my throat)
Anyways i'm not 100% sure how the Co-Efficiant works and if this is indeed a possibility? And if any of you Bears can enlighten me please do :/
ANYWAYS if Kennedy does step in then I can see Souness being back at Ibrox, prob not as Manager but definitely in some capacity.
Got to remember that the 3 Bears and others have all helped out the Club with ZERO INTEREST LOANS! and definitely have the Club at Heart.

I like McLeish but I'm not a huge fan of his style of Play, if we do find ourselves looking for a new Manager then I would rather have Tommy Wright in before big Eck!
I am still backing Pedro to get this Team clicking! If we can get a good run of winning results and can book a place in the Lge Cup Final the Support must get off his back and let the Man continue building a Squad that WILL challange! Changing the Manager will only set us back another Season AND the next Manager may not get the finances needed to build what HE thinks is needed! A new Manager will most likely want and need to move Players out and imo some of the Players that Caxinha has brought in may need a Season to settle in AND also get to grips with the style of Scottish Football! There's loads of high profile Players down South who took a Season to get regular first Team Football and show just exactly what they can do! BUT its because their playing for Rangers in this Football Goldfish Bowl, TIME! is a luxury especially if you have been subject to a decent Transfer Fee.
Anyways I think Pedro should definitely be given the WHOLE Season as long as we are competing for 2nd at the very least (AND I HATE SAYING THAT BTW! ) I had high hopes at the beginning but realistically 2nd would suffice. If Ped can get this Team playing, go on a run and if the Board have faith and decide to give him some decent funds for Jan and Pedro actually finds 2 or even 3 Players of quality, I would love to see us have a great 2nd half of the Season AND getting a result against the Tic!

No. I just mentioned that McLean may come in Jan and as for the Loans, if finances are stretched then Loans prob makes sense although we may have some loans coming back! Dunno how Dodoo has been doing or if he will be back Jan.
Sheep are not the benchmark but 2nd this Year is a minimum!

IF the Board are thinking about giving it to Murty then the best thing to do is keep him in the role as Caretaker at least until Dec/ Jan as he can then have a fair crack at it and the Club is protecting ITSELF from making a decision that could go either way to be totally honest.
I like Murty but really do not think that taking the Rangers Job as his FIRST full time Top Position is a wise move.
I really do think that we require a Manager who has experience on a few levels. Murty is definitely the man to take charge of the Team for 4-5 games and I truly think that suits him.
McInnes or Wright either one of these Men will secure 2nd and both also have the SKILLS to really challenge if the funds are made available to bring in the right Players at the right time!

Wee Bear I like Murty but I really don't think that the Man actually wants the Position Full Time! He hasn't said in any interviews that he would like to take on the Job Fulk Time. In my opinion he's happy knowing that he's in charge for the next few games. Again I do like Murty and taking up a Managers Position is something he will do in the future but I get the feeling that he doesn't want the Position right now! I could be wrong tho.

I know that there have been Players that have crossed the divide but Managers I just don't think that will happen.

Yeah the only changes will be Alnwick and Jack in for Wes and Holt but I would like to see a change on the left wing and the possibility of Elton taking over from Windass and putting Beerman or Hodson at LB or Wallace when fit but as for the Semi only Alnwick and Jack the only changes. There is a Player in Windass but he needs to start producing for full 90!
