The boy Kenny McLean at Norwich under consideration.


1.) 22 May 2020 14:24:10
Good player.

2.) 22 May 2020 14:31:34
Only by you, Bankie.

3.) 22 May 2020 14:35:37
I would love to see him in a Rangers shirt especially in November.

4.) 22 May 2020 15:00:05
Is this lad McLean any better than what we currently have in midfield. I knew he was released as a youth but never followed his career. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🇦🇺⚽️😎👍.

5.) 22 May 2020 15:42:41
Ex aberdeen mclean is

Hickey fae hearts?

6.) 22 May 2020 19:08:07
Would take mclean 100% good player. And yes better than some of our midfielders. don't want hickey.

7.) 23 May 2020 14:27:00
Hickey is highly overrated. He has been shocking in every game against us.

8.) 23 May 2020 14:42:02
Mclean is supposedly on £40k a week at Norwich he’s definitely not worth that money as well as a transfer fee, but I do agree that he’s better than what we’ve got.

9.) 24 May 2020 15:52:36
McLean is on just under £10k a week and is no improvement on what we already have. The highest paid player at Norwich is Byram, on £30k a week. Some of the guesses at player wages on here are ridiculous.

10.) 24 May 2020 23:27:08
The Covenanter it wasn’t a guess, granted I never looked up his wages but I read in one of the articles linking us to him that he was one of their top earners on around £40k a week I think it was possibly a Kris Boyds peace, I have since had a look and I agree with you that he is on £10k. However I do think he’s better than what we have I think he’s better than Arfeild, Davis or Kamara all of whom are considered first players and he’s a rangers man as well.

11.) 25 May 2020 13:45:15
Guys if Mclean is better than most off the first team midfield as Highlandbear put it, Then it’s a no brainer he should be pursued. Him being a Rangers man could also help coming back to Ibrox. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🇦🇺⚽️😎👍.



21 May 2020 12:30:08
We are indeed interested in Lewis Ferguson. The Sheep want Docherty and McCrorie plus £2.5m.


1.) 21 May 2020 12:54:28
Tell the to f off.

2.) 21 May 2020 13:13:09
That sounds like an awful deal. Are the sheep throwing in McKenna as well? 🤔.

3.) 21 May 2020 13:17:29
Both are worth about 5 easy
Docherty has been brilliant on loan n is one for future same as mcCrorie we need too keep both the sheep can **** off
Ferguson's a great young play bags of potential
Rather pay cash n keep our young talent as good too have younger players who can be bleed in for the future.

4.) 21 May 2020 13:49:47
I wouldn't object to that if mccrorie was a season loan. Docherty obviously isn't in Gerrard's plans and could be used as part of the deal. Mccrorie is now what 22ish I reckon if he isn't breaking into our team next season or the one after at most then he won't break into our team.

5.) 21 May 2020 14:25:32
Leeds and Portsmouth interested in mccrorie 3 million. So he won’t be going to sheep with Docherty and 2.5.

6.) 21 May 2020 16:48:33
Docherty is better than ferguson.

7.) 21 May 2020 16:51:27
Both are far to good for Aberdeen, Ferguson is a poor buy imo.

8.) 21 May 2020 19:14:50
Docherty is a superior plat full stop . Macrorie just can't cut it at Ibrox.

9.) 21 May 2020 20:03:53
Surely that can't be true. Tell them to go and scratch themselves.

10.) 21 May 2020 20:07:23
I would have Ferguson over both. Docherty has done nothing when given a chance. McCrorie I do like to be fair but from the games I have seen from Ferguson I think he is the better player.

If you have any doubts look back at every game he has played against us for Aberdeen. Tough one tho. I can see both sides of this one. I like Ferguson but at what cost. The sheep will try and milk it dry!

11.) 21 May 2020 23:40:40
McCrorie has done well but has not been given a fair chance by Gerrard, he prefers tippy tappy players but i would have McCrorie before Kamara any day, he offers something different and has been our best player when he's played in an old firm game. Sdnding him out on loan to play at right back is odd, unless that's where Gerrard sees him, as back uo to Tav.

12.) 22 May 2020 00:42:01
We aren’t interested in Ferguson. It’s agent trying to get him a move, no coincidence that the day after we were linked with him Brentford also “wanted” him.

13.) 22 May 2020 01:17:14
Ferguson really. people just remember flashes but Doherty done more in a few weeks than ferguson all year. And that's with ferguson playing all year and docherty not. Get a grip folks mccrorie was one of best for years before Gerrard.

14.) 22 May 2020 07:16:46
Both are talented enough too keep at rangers
Both bleed rangers
And when they do or have had chances both play out there jerseys mccrorie has shown us he's not scared of a tackle both are professional and have great work ethic, Docherty is the same and Shined when on loan these two boys are future stars because Gerrard has chopped and changed the team at times chances have been limited but When both have a run of games you see there's players in them definitely keep cause both would run through walls for gers . and we need that commitment n backbone in our team
Plus with experience n a few more games both will thrive a nd only get better .

15.) 22 May 2020 08:27:28
I would allow mccrorie and docherty to go on loans to them, they would play every week and not against us. Christie was up there two years and came back and is now their top midfielder, would be a good place for these guys to finish development, as part of a Ferguson deal it would make sense for us and them.

16.) 22 May 2020 09:24:51
Bankie, surely this story is fabled, that aberdeen don't half like to value there players. Way way way over the top, but there again they know that there is money at our club, and more investment coming, could be the reason for them wanting so much from us,i'dsee how little we would really have to play for fergie, end off, mate.

17.) 22 May 2020 10:32:58
Great point Coully 👏.

18.) 22 May 2020 11:10:10
I will be surprised if both McCrorie and Docherty stay at Rangers. We might see one of them, possibly McCrorie, stay, but ultimately, if we get the right offer for them I suspect they will be sold. McCrorie has done well at Portsmouth and has played at right back which could be significant in terms of him staying at Rangers although Portsmouth would be keen to keep him. As for Docherty I remain to be convinced and he could possibly be part of a deal for Ferguson. Only time will tell!



20 May 2020 18:38:13
Striker who played against us in Europe this season being reviewed as replacement for Morelos.


1.) 20 May 2020 19:22:34
Rangers played against 8 team's in Europe this season bankie😁
Give us another clue?

2.) 20 May 2020 19:46:28
He plays up front.

3.) 20 May 2020 20:02:21
Midtylland and Feyenoord. In addition to Morelos replacement a midfield player also being reviewed.

4.) 21 May 2020 00:09:04
Think it's pretty clear we will sign s striker and a midfielder.

5.) 21 May 2020 12:19:53
hang on to your hats people. I've got insider info. we are going to sign. someone. who may or may not. play football (sometimes) . possibly. but don't quote me on it. just a definite rumour.

6.) 21 May 2020 18:03:43
Martyb125, he also has been known to score 1 or 2 goals from the striker position, lol!
We need someone who can play up front on their own, given the formation Stevie G prefers AND can score 30+ goals a season. We won't get that with what we are able to pay, unless we get VERY lucky like we did with Fred.



20 May 2020 18:32:02
Interested in the boy Paterson ex Hearts and now at Cardiff.


1.) 20 May 2020 19:24:08
He's a big physical player. He's a fair age though.

2.) 20 May 2020 19:37:17
Cart-Horse! 😎🇬🇧.

3.) 20 May 2020 20:17:50
Patterson is only 25, quite young if you ask me.

4.) 20 May 2020 20:20:57
Mr grumpy only 25. Would be useful squad player. Not sure re cost.

5.) 20 May 2020 20:51:45
Is he? I thought he was in his 30's😁.

6.) 20 May 2020 23:36:58
He is terrible.

7.) 21 May 2020 02:54:06
He’s that bad a defender he’s been playing up front haha.

8.) 21 May 2020 11:14:02
Where do we play him tho? Pretty sure he’s a cb. he’s also been playing as a striker. I honestly think we could do far better in both positions.

9.) 21 May 2020 11:30:54
He can play rb, rm.

10.) 21 May 2020 12:25:48
We are interested in him as RB competition/ replacement for Tav.

11.) 21 May 2020 14:37:59
He's a donkey and we have shown no interest in him.



01 May 2020 00:01:08
The Vote submitted by Dundee and confirmed as received by SPFL before 5pm on Good Friday was diverted to a SPFL Spam File. Strange that votes submitted by the other members did not also divert to the Spam File.


1.) 01 May 2020 10:07:45
Statement from SPFL said no promises were made to members although some had been sought in run up to Good Friday Vote deadline. Dundee Director said he was provided with assurances on league reconstruction as part of his post vote revision deliberation.

2.) 01 May 2020 10:32:29
After Dundee changed their vote to yes they immediately received £50k of sponsorship from a company run by ex Livi director and big tine Tim, Dominic Keane who's company only had assets of £500. And in the current climate when money is tight who'd lay out any money in sponsorship?

3.) 01 May 2020 10:27:30
Spot on Bankie. pure lies from SPFL . I posted a while back about this as it’s been obvious that Dundee were negotiating on a vote that would have consequences for other clubs.
Corrupt to the core. And still we follow on.

4.) 01 May 2020 10:57:37
Im like and old vinyl record playing the old tune . time to pack our bags and get our application in to join whatever happens in England, that's where the money and prestige are, with brexit no tory government would say no to another team from the union, let's leave these nomarks behind to squabble over the crumbs .

5.) 01 May 2020 12:57:35
Loyalist I kinda agree with you but for me I would run a team down south and 1 up here. Both rangers but we can use the Scottish league as a reserve league. Imagine e the outcry from celtic if our reserves beat them in the leaguelmao.

6.) 01 May 2020 15:30:04
Bellshilllad83,i also agree with you we should have our development team play in Scotland, however as I've said many times we need to go now with brexit because no tory government will say no to a team from within uk can't transfer to english leagues, that mob wouldn't want to come under those conditions cause theyhate uk and England, we have to think outside the boxand for the long term future of our club.

Would like to see young Stephen Kelly get an opportunity. Good reviews when on loan at Ayr and at 20 should be ready for step up.


1.) 23 May 2020 14:12:20
Any time I saw the lad on TV, he looked a player, I agree, give him a crack at it, otherwise we'll never know if he's good enough or not.



09 May 2020 18:52:55
20th July earmarked by Boris as date when Football leagues could reopen with social distancing restrictions on spectators.


1.) 10 May 2020 02:41:15
Thankfully no one pays any real attention to anything boris the bumbling womble has to say.

2.) 10 May 2020 10:39:58
That's funny Condor, he's got England back on track quicker than wee Nippy has Scotland? 👀😷
All at the same time recovering from the virus! 👍.

3.) 10 May 2020 14:00:12
MrTupacman, i'm no fan of either but to say England are back on track is a bit wide of the mark. Its the under funded key and critical workers that have kept the country on the go in many cases with no or a lack of PPE. If you were to combine all characters from the show Little Britain you would end up with Boris Johnston the only Bumbling Cockwomble in the village. To balance it up, why do Nicolas shoes always look 5 times to big for her.

4.) 10 May 2020 17:43:35
Who you getting your advice from Condor?
Wee Nippy and her anti British party
If she had her way out Manager would be asking to go home as apparently English people are not that welcome in her world.

The eagle has landed.


1.) 07 May 2020 11:20:06
Hopefully has some damning evidence but at 200 pages long it could take the clubs a while to chew over.

2.) 07 May 2020 11:28:02
Bit worried now. I thought this was supposed to be evidence of corruption not 'legal questions to be answered'.

3.) 07 May 2020 11:29:07
What time is the smoking gun being fired?



29 Apr 2020 13:04:56
SPFL accept that it was a mistake to create pressure of a 5pm deadline on Easter Friday for votes on the resolution. Accept responsibility but not apologising for putting pressure on Dundee FC as deadline approached.


1.) 29 Apr 2020 16:14:28
They knew fine well how Dundee were going to vote from the start and spfl had that vote in there hand. So you make a strange 'it went missing' statement then a 'dont accept out vote' reply.

They cry its a democracy. What democracy allows someone to vote after the votes have supposed to be have been finished but there vote would be the casting vote? My 9 year old would do a better job at hiding the corruption than the SPFL have shown in this 'democratic' vote.

2.) 29 Apr 2020 17:31:12
Can someone please tell me and provide evidence e. g. documents, call transcripts, email, comments from chairmen that demonstrates this corruption and cheating by Celtic you all speak of. I don’t mean hearsay and comments like “They are all Liewell men” I mean facts and evidence. When did Celtic cheat and what did they win as a result of this cheating. What corruption have they been involved in and please don’t say land buys as that particular rumour has been disproven years ago by an independent land expert. I await your comments with interest.

p. s. why do you think this vote was rigged against Rangers when they have much less to lose that say Hearts or Partick?

3.) 29 Apr 2020 17:48:35
Ehhh doubt anyone on here will have transcripts available numb nuts 🤣🤣.

4.) 29 Apr 2020 17:57:03
Thanks for that well thought out and articulate reply Snell. So no evidence then just hearsay.

5.) 29 Apr 2020 18:22:31
Does the mojo stand for mo Johnson he was a player, u can get back to your glue now.

6.) 29 Apr 2020 18:39:10
Thanks for taking time to reply to my post Oatlander. Yes Mo Johnson was a good striker although he lacked morale fibre. However could you address my original question please. Even if it is something that has been leaked online or verbatim remarks from club chairman highlighting this cheating and corruption. Not much too ask as loads of people on here seem to be certain that these things are happening.

7.) 29 Apr 2020 19:06:46
No Mr mojo, nobody on here has to answer your questions. Perhaps a bigger question is why you feel the need to post on rangers fans forum? 🤔.

8.) 29 Apr 2020 19:22:06
Why wouldn’t I post on a Rangers site although I doubt that is a bigger question than the alleged corruption and cheating in Scottish football as claimed here. I am a fan of Scottish football and felt with the level of certainty you guys state around Celtic, cheating and corruption you would have had solid proof. I don’t think that is an unreasonable ask if it is all true.

9.) 29 Apr 2020 19:33:38
Why don't you look it up Mojo, we don't have to prove anything to you.
All the evidence is in the public domain.
You can chose which side you want to believe. 👍.

10.) 29 Apr 2020 19:54:44
mr mojo rising, i will say it once, lots of gers supporters think that the spfl are bent, where is your proof and evidence that they are not.

11.) 29 Apr 2020 19:58:06
Hi Mr Tupacman prior to asking the question of you guys I did carry out an extensive search of the internet and couldn’t find anything that wasn’t just rumour and conjecture. If you could give me a link or name of an independent site which hosts this evidence it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance for your help.

12.) 29 Apr 2020 20:33:59
Hi truebluesotrue I was not asking about the SPFL I was asking about the accusations that Celtic are corrupt and cheats and was looking for coberating evidence to back up such claims. For the record I don't necessarily trust the SPFL however you cannot ask someone to prove they are not corrupt without first providing details of said corruption.

13.) 29 Apr 2020 21:31:10
In this thread in which you replied to mojo no one mentioned Celtic being currupt. Perhaps in your extensive internet search you missed the bloke from Inverness caley speaking on sportsound about what happened at the vote? The WhatsApp messages. The fact Dundee's original vote was sent at 16.48pm, which the SPFL received.
What Neil Doncaster do/ say to change Dundee's vote?
Why, in the WhatsApp messages is Neil speaking to Peter? Who is Peter?
Perhaps you missed in your extensive internet search, BBC Scotland sports page, where Tom English makes some surprisingly valid points?
Just out of interest do you post on the Celtic rumours page mojo?

14.) 29 Apr 2020 23:14:53
Wait and see, then weep, 🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧.

15.) 30 Apr 2020 16:16:32
Seeker - why would I weep? You clearly know absolutely nothing and have no evidence what so every which is why you didn't answer my question.

Mrgrump you are right on this thread there was no accusation of wrongdoing by Celtic however on old threads from yesterday and the day before there was hence my request.

What is clear is that no one on here can provide any proof of corruption or cheating by Celtic and only some supposition about the SPFL handling of the vote. I ask again why do you believe that this is all to get at Rangers when you have less to lose than teams staring at relegation?



25 Apr 2020 10:02:42
Supporters of a certain vintage

Do you remember the guys that used to come round the track at Ibrox wearing a theatre type food tray selling chewing gum and macaroon bars? "Get your gum and macaroon" I can still hear them cry. I can't think why macaroon bars were sold, recall them being unbranded and wrapped in plane cellophane. Don't think I've ever bought a macaroon bar in my life before or since.

Saturday morning cabin feaver.


1.) 25 Apr 2020 11:37:54
Bankie. I used to sell the chewing gum and macaroon bars but you had to sneak in to Ibrox with them as the guys with the food trays were the official vendors and if my memory serves me well they sold a brand of crisps called chipmunk!
I used to get in the ground early and then hopefully sell my macaroons etc quickly and then watch the game at the copeland road end, happy days.

2.) 25 Apr 2020 13:20:15
Guys, I remember it well, GET RA MACAROON BEARS AN A SPEARMINT CHEWING GUM, magic days indeed, I also remember the 'Pink Lint' Rolls and Ham Rolls sold outside the stadium in those days, happier and less stressful times folks, all the best.

3.) 25 Apr 2020 13:43:26
First times at Ibrox my old man would meet with his brothers in the enclosure I am sure they had a wee drink instead of spearmint or macaroon. I was on the small wall at the pitch ended up playing with the horrible grit and my hands came home black.
Best game for me 3-0 at Christmas Parlane Doddy and I think Derek Johnstone scored about 1974?
Great memories old man and his brothers mostly gone but never forgoten.

4.) 25 Apr 2020 14:18:46
Yes guys and as well as selling the macaroon bars and chewing gum you then had the guy selling the glasgow evening times. I was a wee boy with my dad and i used to laugh at the way the guy would shout evening times, when he was trying to sell them. Those were the days! 👍.

5.) 25 Apr 2020 16:19:23
Eefishul macaroon bars.

6.) 25 Apr 2020 17:32:09
When i was young there was a guy who sold sugar puffs in a poke and called it popcorn.

7.) 25 Apr 2020 17:33:27
Yeah remember that. The macaroon bars also sold out of soggy cardboard boxes in the pouring rain!
Those were the days.

8.) 26 Apr 2020 09:40:21
Should have mentioned my days selling the times at ibrox was around 1966/ 67,

9.) 26 Apr 2020 09:41:44
Bankie, i should also have mentioned that i used to look for a capable guy to give me a lift over the turnstyle, ohhh, were have those days long gone.

10.) 26 Apr 2020 11:50:15
Bankie, yip i remember, quite easily, when i was a nipper maybe 10 or 11ish, i had to leave our games a few minuets earlier, just to collect my papers and get selling, times citizen final, it was a pinkish coloured paper, with all the results in it, always sold a good bundle of papers, first to the van was first to get selling, the auld guy that brought me my papers was delivering to me in an auld tames van, with the evening times logo all over the van, can anybody remember, it was always me, and a couple of friends that sold these papers at ibrox, that was our punch line, times citezean final, final scores, from all the grounds, papers were printed in albion st glasgows times offices.

11.) 26 Apr 2020 12:34:14
Macaroon bars, spearmint chewing gum.

As general point think our performance at getting our academy players thru the ranks and into 1st team squad is not good enough. Really want Ross McCrorie in 1st team squad this season and 3 or 4 others pushing for a place.

Hopefully he will gain some sense and sign for us.

John25, TBH not sure, have not thought enough about it or reviewed the options. Over the years a number of teams in Scotland have signed keepers, usually from England on loan, who have equipped themselves extremely well in the SPL. Ruddy, Schmiechell and Foster all spring to mind, all of whom played for their country. Most English teams have 4 top class keepers with the number 2 in particular in need of a pathway to top class football. I honestly don’t think it would be a difficult search. Also likely attractive options available in Dutch, Polish leagues.

Disappointing but If he does not want to join us let the boy go elsewhere. Hopefully he will not live to regret the decision.

Definitely need to sign an experienced keeper to compete with and push McGregor. McGregor needs to step up and return fitter and competitive, thought he looked vulnerable before lockdown.

Docherty always finds a teammate with his pass and always makes himself available to receive a pass. Also scores 15 goals a season from midfield. SG and GM made a major error of judgment here.
