West Ham preparing bid for Morelos, upwards of £15m plus add ons. Widely discussed at Villa game today.


1.) 26 Jul 2020 20:48:19
Well if true lille only bid 6m I hope its true as anything less than 12 we'd be a laughing stock.

2.) 26 Jul 2020 20:58:00
That’s probably a rumour in itself 6million lol.

3.) 26 Jul 2020 21:40:11
They didn’t bid 6 million.

4.) 26 Jul 2020 22:23:23
The bid from Lille was allegedly 13 mil.

5.) 26 Jul 2020 22:47:02
Can I ask how everyone know the bid.

6.) 27 Jul 2020 07:17:53
twacoos they don't. making tripe up. nobody will know until a rangers press release.

7.) 27 Jul 2020 11:15:20
Widely discussed by who at west ham game, considering there's only club staff and refereeing team in the stadium?

8.) 27 Jul 2020 14:56:09
Bankie can u provide any more info re Morelos discussion at West Ham game mate.



06 Jul 2020 21:21:20
Kamberi talks continue, Hibs keen on taking Docherty or McCrorie in exchange.


1.) 06 Jul 2020 21:52:17
Give them doc. Take that no probs.

2.) 06 Jul 2020 22:45:38
SG wants Kamberi plus another striker on board even if Morelos was to stay.

3.) 06 Jul 2020 23:04:30
Yes, showed more commitment than some.

4.) 07 Jul 2020 04:01:33
They can have one of them on loan but no way is docherty or mccrorie 150k as that’s the fee being reported.

5.) 07 Jul 2020 06:21:16
Couly kamberi has shown more than doc in games played. Fair straight swap.

6.) 07 Jul 2020 07:34:21
I have to say I feel if we really wanted Kamberi he would already be in the door and training with us. What would be the point in waiting? If as is the case he’d only cost 150k there’d be nothing stopping us getting him in. I don’t believe we are wanting him back at all.

7.) 07 Jul 2020 08:25:43
If Kamberi is the level of ambition then we are in trouble. How are we supposed to stop them with players like him? Shouldn’t be doing any business with Hibs and certainly not Docherty or McCrorie.

8.) 07 Jul 2020 08:57:01
I agree Biff, Kamberi is a descent player but not good enough to overcome the Tims✌️🇬🇧.

9.) 07 Jul 2020 10:59:50
So kamberi isn't good enough for us. Yet they signed players like Hayes n the Killie lad yet still win the league. Your vision is very clouded tbh.

10.) 07 Jul 2020 11:13:06

Yeah but they already had a squad that won the league and the 2 players you mention were squad players. We need players who can go straight into the team and not just squad players. Gerrard himself has said he is looking at players who can go straight into the team and Kamberi doesn’t fit into that.

11.) 07 Jul 2020 12:07:53
How many said Novo, Boyd, Naismith etc were not good enough?
Trust the plan.

12.) 07 Jul 2020 13:10:12
I am struggling to see why we would swap Docherty or McCrorie for a guy that is only worth £150k from a team that is struggling financially. A season long loan is about as good as they should get although I have to believe that if Docherty doesn't have a future then there is a deal to be done with Aberdeen for Ferguson. We need significantly better than Kamberi - even as back up - if we are to win the league or even a cup. I live in hope that when the Transfer Window opens in August we have lined up three or four players that can walk into the team and not more mediocre squad players!

13.) 07 Jul 2020 14:02:43
Biff I agree the main priority should be straight in players however we do need more strength in the squad.

14.) 08 Jul 2020 08:07:55
I agree with the use doc for Ferguson deal. although I personally would like doc to get a run in a much stronger rangers side than he has done before I don’t think it will happen, so if the manager does not want him then try and involve him in a transfer.

Not the kamberi deal as the values of the players are wider apart. Straight loan swap for season regarding kamberi might be an option that suits both sides but not permanent.

Norwich City loss tonight takes McLean a step closer to Ibrox.


1.) 24 Jun 2020 22:08:11
Would be nice 😁.

2.) 24 Jun 2020 22:39:06
Let's hope Norwich start winning then.

3.) 24 Jun 2020 22:41:36
Yeh Bankie, wouldn't mind McLean at Rangers. Are they interested in him? How much would he cost?

4.) 25 Jun 2020 00:54:35
If Murphy isn't going to get a game then how is McLean got any chance? Unless he's coming to help out Jimmy Bell iron the shirts!

5.) 25 Jun 2020 01:00:22
Why is this Bankie?

6.) 25 Jun 2020 08:55:03

What has Murphy not getting a game got to do with Mclean not going to get a game in your opinion?

7.) 25 Jun 2020 12:21:51
bgate, he wants the move and Norwich will be prepared to deal.

8.) 25 Jun 2020 20:33:55
Bankie, there are three parties in this. He wants the move, you claim Norwich would be prepared to deal (how you know that I'll never know) but what about the most important element - Rangers. Do we want him? Have we enquired about him? Have we bid for him? Is he good enough? I suggest the answers are no, no, no and no.

9.) 25 Jun 2020 21:41:56
Think he would offer us something different in midfield. Always played well against us, and he's been decent anytime I've watched Norwich, at a very decent level.

10.) 26 Jun 2020 11:02:19
Let's not purchase any Africans it's at least 2 changes of bus for them to get back there every month for those comedy international fixtures. But if you are in to hilarity sign an African keeper or centre half. If we are to sign Dykes btw it should only be if he commits to Scotland rather than Australia. There will be plenty surplus players in England this summer and for free all clubs will be seriously trying to cut costs.



22 May 2020 13:43:52
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!

Does the Megastore open tomorrow to the public or is it on prearranged basis?


1.) 05 Aug 2020 21:56:03
Sure I saw somewhere it was timed slots, SGL will confirm as he's a gold diamond platinum season ticket holding mygers super member. 🤣.

2.) 05 Aug 2020 22:14:51
And where the chuffing chuff is Dykes?



05 Aug 2020 07:59:37
Great to get a Roofe and Itten signed, expect both to do very well and provide different options. Together with Defoe we now carry much more threat upfront.


1.) 05 Aug 2020 09:32:44
Certainly look like top deals and now I would settle for just one more signing, hopefully Olsen, and then we can really challenge for #55.

2.) 05 Aug 2020 09:58:22
I would have liked Olsen mate but I think the fact Roofe has came in and itten it could mean both start with Roofe playing in behind or on the right in place of Olsen signing. I expect a midfielder signed and then maybe a loan etc if anyone that will improve the side is available.

3.) 05 Aug 2020 10:23:40
The way Gerrard was talking he has a pecking order for the number 9 position, they won't start together.

1. Kemar roofe
2. Cedric itten
3. Jermaine Defoe

Still a chance for Skov Olsen or another talented player from Scandinavian leagues.

4.) 05 Aug 2020 11:02:50
I hope your right Jenkins, more the merrier and I like look of Olsen, I do however think Roofe will be used off the right or in behind he only became a CF under bielsa before that he was AM and wide man.

5.) 05 Aug 2020 11:45:16
Bielsa moved him to number 9 because that is the position which suits him best.

6.) 05 Aug 2020 13:51:09
Js Roofe Gives us options where he plays.



03 Aug 2020 09:17:19
Hopefully young Kelly and Hastie get some game time tonight.


1.) 03 Aug 2020 09:49:58
Another 2 players that have no future at rangers whilst Steven Gerrard is manager.

2.) 03 Aug 2020 09:59:13
Nonsense Jenkins, if they are good enough they will get their chance.

3.) 03 Aug 2020 10:02:18
Jsijenkins I think jelly has a chance but not sure about Hastie. If they are good enough they will get their chance.

4.) 03 Aug 2020 10:21:42
We know mccrorrie is good enough where's his chance? The evidence that the only young players to get a chance are Liverpool loanees is astronomical.

5.) 03 Aug 2020 10:23:44
Kelly will play for gers highly rated by sg.

6.) 03 Aug 2020 10:41:59

Where would you play McCrorrie Because I don’t see where he fits in the team to be honest.
I don’t think he is good enough for a starting slot.

7.) 03 Aug 2020 10:51:14
Spot on KJA9,who would you drop from our midfield to play ross mccrorie?
There's a few midfielders on our bench who are also in front of mccrorie! I honestly can't see mccrorie getting into the rangers team and remember there's another midfielder in zungu about to be signed!

8.) 03 Aug 2020 10:52:17
I would try him in at RB this season as Pompey fans rave about him there, I imagine he would be better defensively than tav, if he's not get rid.

9.) 03 Aug 2020 10:54:38
KJA9 my point is merely he is better than Kelly and Hastie, yes they are different positions but I just don't see them making the cut.

10.) 03 Aug 2020 11:07:40
KJ mccrorie a good squad player as he can cover a few positions. However, not in 20 for Pittodrie suggests he will move on.
Especially with new signings pending.

11.) 03 Aug 2020 12:00:12
Kelly has a big season at Dingwall for his development. I honestly believe if any young players are ready or better than who’s playing the will be in the team!

12.) 03 Aug 2020 12:01:13
McCrorie definitely good enough for place on the bench, good cover at RB, CH and DM.

13.) 03 Aug 2020 12:39:22
Js did u watch him at Portsmouth, he was not great Paterson is better in that position.

14.) 03 Aug 2020 12:58:52
John I have to admit I did not see him play at Portsmouth mate I have only interest in my home team west ham when it comes to English football, the Portsmouth supporters I have spoke to were raving about him so that unfortunately is all I have had to go by.

15.) 03 Aug 2020 13:24:06

He is better at the moment than those two but you can’t compare hastie and Ross different positions.
Kelly who I believe will be a better player than Ross in time without a doubt wether it be with us or some other team remains to be seen.

I do believe SG has high hopes for kelly.

16.) 03 Aug 2020 14:09:12
KJA9 position is irrelevant mate SG said he had special plans for Ross mccrorrie. I didn't know getting thrown overboard was what he meant.

17.) 04 Aug 2020 09:24:40
Hi John, I watched him on TV at right back for Portsmouth, and, I'm sorry to say, I wasn't impressed, his distribution was not good at all.



01 Aug 2020 16:12:08
Good performance and excellent result today. No failures and new lad at CH looks the business.




29 Jul 2020 19:56:09
Heard that Young Coombs looks to be leaving, returning to London and West Ham. Anytime I've seen him he looks about best player in youth set up and has an eye for a goal. Anything in this, is he being sold?


1.) 29 Jul 2020 21:47:32
I posted early this morning that nathan Young-coombes was leaving for west ham. I believe he's wanting to go back home as he's homesick bankie!

2.) 29 Jul 2020 21:59:57
Just seen this covered in another thread, apparently the boy will not extend contract which is on final year. Sorry to hear this, although lacking physical stature thought Young Coombs was a good one.

3.) 29 Jul 2020 22:39:44
Understandable at that age. Does anyone know if clubs could loan players like this, send him to a good academy nearer his home for a year or 2 and reasses. Get a good sell on if he goes.
