We have approached Millwall again about the boy Cooper. He would be keen to come to Ibrox but Millwall looking for at least £6m.


1.) 10 Jun 2019 16:19:51
Heard we are thinking if its worth 1mil bid before returning for take it or leave it offer.

2.) 10 Jun 2019 19:07:01
You are hearing a lot at the moment bellshill lad.

3.) 10 Jun 2019 21:23:43
Peterborough reported bid of 600k plus add ons accepted.

4.) 11 Jun 2019 15:45:41
Gannet10 I was a hospitality manager in football stadiums for a good few years. Worked in half the spl stadiums and hampden so have met a lot of people connected to clubs. Got a lot of rangers fans in my current work that have a lot of connections.



11 May 2019 12:47:30
Ryan Hardie back at Ibrox for preseason. From winter break training Defoe rates young Hardie as best natural finisher at Ibrox, hence reason Hardie offered contract extension. Ready to push on now and stake a claim.


1.) 11 May 2019 13:32:46
I do hope so if only for Doiger"s sake! Lol.

2.) 11 May 2019 13:52:28
Great news, if true!

3.) 11 May 2019 14:17:35
Hardie will NEVER be a first team player at Ibrox.

4.) 11 May 2019 14:54:17
Great news? He’s brutal!

5.) 11 May 2019 14:59:13
The boy deserves a chance Jim.

6.) 11 May 2019 16:00:47
Hey fellow bears first time poster. I am currently in crete in Greece can anyone tell me where I could watch the match tomorrow?

7.) 11 May 2019 17:27:04
witter - so was your post!

8.) 11 May 2019 18:26:18
True blue/ coop😉, rick's post is true, hardie nowhere near the level we need👍.

9.) 11 May 2019 18:51:45
To be champions we need better
Thats the truth of it.

10.) 11 May 2019 19:19:25
The boy must have something if Defoe rates him the best natural finisher at the club. Just saying.

11.) 11 May 2019 20:32:06
Some folk on here are unbelievable! The guy is young, scores goals and can finish. We are we wtitting him off? Fs.

12.) 11 May 2019 20:40:22
Hardie will never make the breakthrough needed at I rox.

13.) 11 May 2019 20:56:41
1984 it’s much easier for the experts on here to say who they think is useless but more difficult to identify a player who has the potential to be really good.

One miss, a poor pass or an error of judgement is sufficient to condemn any of our players.

Of course no one is good enough for us - even messi and Suarez would be condemned by some on here after they failed to beat Liverpool!

14.) 11 May 2019 20:57:59
I’ve post this same statement before but here goes:

I’ve watched him a few times at Livingston and although I accept he’s not been fully fit he honestly hasn’t been at the races. He doesn’t even look like Livingston’s best striker. Now, as I stated, he’s not been fit and that’s important, perhaps with a good preseason he might offer something but honestly, I wouldn’t been getting my hopes up.

15.) 11 May 2019 21:16:04
You're just being silly Dk19, we already have players much better than hardie, we won't improve if we bring in players of less quality that will never reach the level of what we already have. Its really quite simple👍.

16.) 11 May 2019 22:10:21
He hasn’t even been good enough to start every week for livi, never mind ahead of Defoe or morelos.

17.) 11 May 2019 22:27:46
Hardie has earned a shot. He may be good enough, he may not be - but he's earned the chance to try.

18.) 11 May 2019 22:36:36
No messi and saurez would be okay with me! Bit of a jump from hardie though 😉.

19.) 12 May 2019 00:45:36
Dk 19 wan load of dung - imagine putting 2 of the planets best players into that comment.

20.) 12 May 2019 08:02:55
Think there might be more hope for Zak ridden than Hardie however I think rudden might be loaned out again.

21.) 12 May 2019 09:07:46
Hurrah for Hardie, at last! Don't understand the Hardie knockers when the lad has never been given a chance. SG can at least give him a go and see what happens. And Coldo, who do we already have much better than Hardie (forgetting about Defoe and Morelos) - are you saying Lafferty is better?

22.) 12 May 2019 09:39:02
If hardie gets a chance and takes it scoreing goals etc all you knocking the lad before he kickes a ball owe the the young lad an apoligy and a drink lol

good luck to the lad as long as the gers win the title who cares who plays or who scores.

23.) 12 May 2019 11:07:39
Defoe morelos and lafferty all better doiger. then we have rudden and mebude who are better prospects that hardie.

24.) 12 May 2019 14:33:27
All i can say to anyone who thinks Hardie is good enough,

Thank god you don't pick the team.

25.) 12 May 2019 18:26:49
I’d rather work with Hardie with his potential than sign Greg Stewart he’s mince I just can’t see why we’re interested in him! If we sign him I hope I’m proven wrong but I think he’s nowhere near Rangers class.

26.) 12 May 2019 18:32:14
In my opinion the boy knows where the goal is having seen him play a fair bit both at loan teams and also in the youth set up. I believe he has done enough to at least get a chance with a better quality of player around him supplying better chances to see what he has at rangers' level. Do think if he doesn't show enough he will go in January window.

27.) 12 May 2019 18:34:11
Coldo how many spl goals have Rudden and Mebude got between them? None I’m not saying hardie is all that but cut the guy some slack he’s got 7 goals in 20 games for Livingston at 22 that’s not that bad better him than Greg Stewart.

28.) 12 May 2019 19:37:03
Highland. Sorry but that's just pure p1$h. Stewart is better than hardie. Medube and rudden better prospects. Hardie not what we need👍.

29.) 12 May 2019 19:45:25
Highland beat there is no such thing as rangers class anymore, if you want to go down than route then 99% of our players ain’t rangers class.

30.) 12 May 2019 20:59:28
In my honest opinion he seems to be better than lafferty. He has age on his side and maybe with right developement he could be good squad player but at the minute is never a starter.

31.) 12 May 2019 21:02:27
Doesn't make sense to compare hardie to rudden or mebude they haven't had runs in spfl.

32.) 13 May 2019 09:31:16
Irrelevant blue warrior. Plenty of players have came through our youth that have had no spl experience and have been better than players with spl experience. 👍.

33.) 14 May 2019 00:03:46
Blue warrior i hope you found somewhere to watch game, as all my fellow bears had a great day stcgame of watching on tv, to all our rangers family, i wish us alk the best next season, whomever we sign in the close season, in the words of our beloved leader . let's go.



27 Jan 2019 21:19:45
Defoe and Davis to start in Cup tie on Wednesday and looking for them to show their class and stake a claim for inclusion in the first 11.




18 Jan 2019 21:03:29
Wallace has to go, surprised he is not moving to Dundee, to join Miller, this window as partial makeweight for Kamara.


1.) 19 Jan 2019 00:38:10
He is not moving because his wages.

2.) 19 Jan 2019 08:57:40
Some of our supporters have short memories. Why does lee wallace HAVE to go? He loves our club and is still imo at least the 2nd best left back we have at rangers! He's been a very loyal servant to us, but that's not and should never be, the main reason, you keep any player at ibrox. The main reason wallace should stay at ibrox, is because he's a good left back and him and barisic, are our 2 best and actually natural, left backs! Its lee wallace's perogative to stay at rangers, until the end of the season, if he so wishes! Give our former captain some support and respect, for god's sake!

3.) 19 Jan 2019 09:12:43
Wallace deserves respect the guy has been through it with us. even to the detriment of his own career.

4.) 19 Jan 2019 09:32:19
No chance coops, halliday a much better bet at left back when barisic isn't fit. Wallace is done, stop playing the loyalty card. His wife didn't want to go to England and nobody in Scotland eould have matched his wages or he wouldn't have stayed, don't be kidded.

5.) 19 Jan 2019 10:29:41
Yea I tend to agree frustrated . it’s all about the wages for Wallace and prob always has been . wouldn’t have got a better deal anywhere else at any time . sayingvthat it’s not a bad thing and is quite normal and acceptable. but if he went anywhere we would most likely have to pick up half his wadge that’s why Stevie chooses to keep I would imagine. He’s better cover for that money.

6.) 19 Jan 2019 10:34:02
Wallace to stay.

7.) 19 Jan 2019 11:02:23
Respect for staying but he's finished as a footballer.

Was slightly above average in his prime with us and has regressed badly.

8.) 19 Jan 2019 16:06:06
Finished? he's 31 - but just for the record aye he did stay through all the crap, but he just isn't good enough fur us guys really. We have moved on and time to get rid of players who are not in Stevie G's in plans.

9.) 21 Jan 2019 19:46:08
Wallace has been a great servant to rangers football club and although we don’t know what has gone on behind the scenes he’s still been brilliant for rangers! I like Lee Wallace but if Gerrard isn’t playing him then he clearly feels he’s not in his plans especially when he would rather play Andy Halliday ahead of him.

And I know Andy isn’t a left back but he has done really well at left back. I’d really like to know what’s gone on to judge Wallace. If he has spoken his mind I don’t see the problem in that he is a winner and let’s be honest most of us if the stories are true would of had a go as well.



13 Jan 2019 12:57:19
Anybody have any update on situation with Hardie. Seen him training with squad in Tenarife. Is he being loaned back to Livingstone for remainder of season?


1.) 13 Jan 2019 13:37:41
I think Gerrard took him away to have a proper look at him during the training camp. It is more than likely he will return to Livingston for the remainder of the season unless Gerrard plans in playing 2 up top then I imagine he would stay as our 4th choice striker,
Livingston boss stated a couple of days ago if he is being loaned back out they would want him back, I expect that he will return to them. Would be good for us aswell if he is scoring against the rest of the teams they play but ineligible against us as well as obviously continuing his development by playing.

2.) 13 Jan 2019 14:44:59
Makes sense for him to go back on loan for the remainder of the season.
I wouldn’t be surprised if with Hardie or Rossiter end up on loan at Dundee as part of Kamara coming early.

3.) 13 Jan 2019 18:21:10
I'd put Hardie third choice ahead of Lafferty any day.

4.) 13 Jan 2019 19:56:19
I really haven't noticed how good a player Kamara is. The boy Greg Doc is Kamara any better than him? I thought Docherty would see his loan out and come back ready to fight for a place in squad for next season but it doesn't look like its going to turn out that way. Its a shame I had high hopes for the boy.

5.) 13 Jan 2019 19:53:45
Ahead of Lafferty? Absolute nonsense.

Team for Kilmarnock game.






1.) 17 May 2019 22:12:26
Is katic injured? I'd think we'd start the game with the same 11 as started the last game.

2.) 17 May 2019 22:44:39
Getrard let Katic go on holiday a week early according to papers.

3.) 17 May 2019 22:50:18
Katic has been allowed to head off on holiday early as he has international games coming up. Arfield the same. I’m hoping Dorrans gets a start as for me he will be like a new signing and it stays fit will be a starter.

4.) 17 May 2019 23:03:52
Worrall why?
Dirrans still injured.

5.) 17 May 2019 23:06:45
Katic and arfield on holiday early👍.

6.) 17 May 2019 23:23:23
Where is Scotty Arfield?

7.) 17 May 2019 23:42:37
I think Katic is away with the Croatia u21’s.

8.) 18 May 2019 00:01:07
Katic is rested by the gaffer with a view to Croatias summer U21 campaign.

9.) 18 May 2019 00:44:59
Katic has been allowed to take time off early, the same as Arfield since they’ll both have a busy summer with international duty. I think Alfie will start to see if he can ensure being top scorer and gain some more interest from teams. I’d also like the see the boy Polster play.

10.) 18 May 2019 07:05:19
Sure there is more than katic and arfield away early. Will see a lot of fringe players playing. Think polster will start.

11.) 18 May 2019 08:05:58
He could give the whole team early holidays, this game as has the whole season, been a waste of time and meaningless.

12.) 18 May 2019 09:17:59
Dorrans the worst midfielder at Ibrox! Won’t be missed when he hopefully moves on this summer.

13.) 18 May 2019 09:37:21
Zikos, what nonsense, end of!

14.) 18 May 2019 10:01:51
Zikos deary me take a day off.

15.) 18 May 2019 10:06:11
Why not give some our young players
A chance.

16.) 18 May 2019 11:36:06
Even if Dorrans was fit can't see SG risking him on that pitch not after a long term injury.

17.) 18 May 2019 15:25:01
Hope not hate meaningless game? For the first time since the split started in I think 2010 mabey wrong on date but no team has ever won all fixtures after the split, the famous will manage that tomorrow if we win so I don't see this as a meaningless game and don't think others will too.

18.) 18 May 2019 16:07:26
We have the most fickle fans in the world. This season has been a waste of time and meaningless? Take it you’ve been a fan for a couple of years? Otherwise, you’d realise what an idiotic statement that truly is. I really wonder what goes through some people’s minds at time. We had a great run in Europe. Got a fantastic new management team and a squad light years better than where it was. Within 3-6 points of them and catching. Two OF wins and getting closer all the time. Players who want to play for the jersey. Record season ticket sales. Genuine hope and belief. Some ‘fans’ probably don’t remember when we had Ian Black and Kevin Kyle in the squad. But of course, Dorrans is a terrible midfielder. Genuinely shaking my head in wonder.



16 May 2019 11:35:43
Rossiter has played regularly whilst on loan and feedback on his performance has been excellent. His injuries seem to be behind him. Together with Docherty will be like 2 new quality signings for preseason.


1.) 16 May 2019 12:22:10
Not sure if this is true or what but last pre season the team had in Spain apparently the stand out player was Rossiter. Hopefully the boy can stay away from injuries this season and can be a proper player for us.

2.) 16 May 2019 15:48:11
Theres not room for both of them. 1 of them will leave. I personally favour a fit rossiter.

3.) 16 May 2019 16:46:26
rossiters injury issues were down to being injured while he was still growing into a man

hopefully that's now past him and he can push on. a gem of a player if he can.

4.) 16 May 2019 20:59:43
Very good player. I'd love to see him kick on and become the great player a lot of people think he will be.

5.) 16 May 2019 21:26:01
Technically both are better than McCrorie, and Davis is cominjg to the end of his career - of course we can keep both. It's a long season.



16 May 2019 11:21:17
Morelos left out of Columbia national squad. This is massive for him and until he sorts himself out, competed and gets himself back into the team and scoring goals he is going nowhere.


1.) 16 May 2019 11:29:36
Agreed Bankie, should learn him a lesson.



13 May 2019 10:53:20
Great to see young Docherty on the pitch at the end yesterday joining in on the celebrations. Looking forward to seeing him next season as first team player on the park playing.


1.) 13 May 2019 14:12:22
I think docherty and rossiter are really going to struggle to get near that midfield bankie. I hope docherty has what it takes. I think we will sign another cm aswell. 👍.

2.) 13 May 2019 19:32:06
In place of who, Bankie? Is he even better than McCrorie on the bench? He will need another half season at least on loan at a higher level than this season.



13 May 2019 10:18:05
Great team performance and result yesterday. Shows that in one off game we can get the upper hand. . Hopefully we avoid repeating aftermath of the December victory when excessive celebration extended into delusion and then complacency.

Someone having a joke. Saw McGennis last season coming off bench against Millwall. On a par with Billy Urquart.

Ed, can you shed light on the commitment we make to play loan signings. Do we commit to playing a set number of games or to include in match day squad when fit, or is no guarantee provided to parent club?

Cooper signed a long term contract earlier in season to maintain his transfer value. I’ve seen him 3 or 4 times and he would be a good acquisition. Millwall reported to be looking for £8 million.

My mother would occasionally leave the window cleaner’s money on the on the window sill of the upstairs window. She suspected he often would not clean that window although would always charge for it. Always loved it when he came around on a Friday to collect his money, only to receive a rollocking from her and told he better get his ladder if he wants paid. The look of embarrassment on his face was priceless. Perhaps his name was Supercoop!
