Lewis Ferguson signing in the Summer.


1.) 01 Jan 2024 10:43:02
That's a big claim there bankie, how for uou know?

Be a great signing and one we should have made earlier imo.

2.) 01 Jan 2024 10:47:15
I love your optimism mate, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

3.) 01 Jan 2024 10:54:20
Would love that.

4.) 01 Jan 2024 10:59:37
Common bankie, you're better than that pal ?I didn't know you changed your profession to a comedian mate ? Unfortunately that has absolutely no chance of happening and i would think everyone on here would agree ?.

5.) 01 Jan 2024 11:02:09
We got a spare 20m aye ?.

6.) 01 Jan 2024 11:05:07

We should have signed him when he was at aberdeen.

7.) 01 Jan 2024 11:07:00
We can't afford him.

8.) 01 Jan 2024 11:27:28
The boy wants to play for Rangers, Hagi and another youngster could form part of the deal. Coops you always said Ferguson was no where good enough, glad to see you’ve changed your opinion.

9.) 01 Jan 2024 11:32:44
I think the only way we would get Ferguson is if he was out of contract unless we have some major investment.
He’s bound to have a fee of £15m-£20m on him after this season.

10.) 01 Jan 2024 11:50:09
We should have signed but unfortunately we can’t afford him.

11.) 01 Jan 2024 11:50:33
That ship has sailed. Absolutely no chance is Lewis Ferguson signing. Should have got him when he was at Aberdeen.

12.) 01 Jan 2024 11:50:59
We will not get lewis ferguson as he has intrest in him from Juv, Inter and AC so i see him staying in Italy.

13.) 01 Jan 2024 11:51:09
No chance the boy loves it there and is loved their he's one of their top performers, he has no alliance to us bar his uncles, he owes us nothing, so why give all that up, when we showed no desire too get him when his uncles where singing his praises too us a few seasons ago.

14.) 01 Jan 2024 11:56:06
Careful sir Walter, bankie will have a dig for you young emojis.

15.) 01 Jan 2024 12:20:12
That’s the best of the year yet ????.

16.) 01 Jan 2024 12:29:19
He'll be at juve in the summer. They want him now, but bologna don't want to sell.

17.) 01 Jan 2024 12:38:41
Will be miles out our price range if top Italian sides looking at him.

18.) 01 Jan 2024 12:47:54
Bankie, i've had the baws to come on here a good few occasions now and admitted i was wrong regarding Lewis Ferguson and how the young guy has developed into the player he now is, over at bologna ?At the time ?% i did say i didn't think he was good enough for us and that he wouldn't have got a starting berth, in our midfield ? But he's developed into a terrific midfielder and got much better over in italy and fair play to him, i wish him every success ?.

19.) 01 Jan 2024 12:54:28
Bankie this is not happening they are talking upwards of 15 million for him now. He is the captain also. With juve and few others rumoured to be in for him.

20.) 01 Jan 2024 13:19:53
He'll stay in Italy then end up down south. We mite get him when he's 32 or something.

21.) 01 Jan 2024 13:20:00
Starting the new year off with a bang!
They said they won’t sell for less than 20 million.

22.) 01 jan 2024 13:58:05
bluedreamer, if ferguson has no alliance to rangers then neither do you, me or anyone else on here

he was a rangers supporter from childhood, same as the rest of us, should have brought him in long ago, interesting news tho.

23.) 01 Jan 2024 14:41:11
We missed the chance if signing Fergusson and Doig. Both have experienced Italy and now way we have the cash to buy them . and no way they would want to come back to the SPL.

24.) 01 Jan 2024 15:54:23
That ship sailed! Far too many on here claimed at the time he wasn’t good enough for us lol madness! 10x the player Barron is!

25.) 01 Jan 2024 16:38:51
Sorry mate don’t have £20M.

26.) 01 Jan 2024 17:06:50
No Alliance to us he’s a rangers fan mate his dad talks about watching our games with him. A think he would love to play for us one day.

27.) 01 Jan 2024 17:32:48
Bankie at the windup and your all buying it ?well reported that Juventus are interested sorry but can’t see him turning down Juventus or another big move for Scottish football.

People will be telling him plenty of time to come back to rangers.

28.) 01 Jan 2024 17:42:02
Doig only has 2 assists in 34 games.

That’s not good enough for me and so I would pass on him:

29.) 01 Jan 2024 18:09:40
Reported on rumours sites and newspapers that they were interested, about 6 months ago. Things change.



25 Dec 2023 11:51:22
Don't expect to see Shankland at Ibrox in this window although a quality striker will be signed most likely on loan.


1.) 25 Dec 2023 13:19:55
If Alfie is available for free we have to remember he is our 10th ever leading scorer with most European goals and is only 27. Surely makes more sense than Shankland taking into account likely fee. John any info if Beale had fallen out or mistreated Kent and Morelos last season?

2.) 25 Dec 2023 13:28:32
Beale had a few falling outs with a few players, Kent was one.

There was a major falling out right at the start of pre season that left key players in the squad raging with Beale.

3.) 25 Dec 2023 13:53:00
The pre season video footage of Lundstram and Dowell driving to the training session. Lundstram looked was raging about something.

4.) 25 dec 2023 14:01:28
all good n fine, but they were part, a major part of a team who saw celtic win just about everything going, and neither was any good fir major parts of their tenure,

backwards is not the way to go, not again please, the thought of either again is scary.

5.) 25 Dec 2023 14:08:43
The manager will have an idea who he can bring in without having to pay the Gorgie torn faces any money, he's smart the new manager.

6.) 25 Dec 2023 14:29:23
Only one I'd have back is big Aribo.

7.) 25 Dec 2023 14:31:11
Alfie? You’ve got to be joking, stop living in the past. He downed tools last year and cost us more often than not with his attitude and sendings off. Would probably take about 6 months to get him fit anyway. He had his time and blew it. He’ll drift off into obscurity like so many who think they are bigger than rangers.

8.) 25 Dec 2023 14:41:08
Yes thumb if you asked me at end of last season I would have said the same however after watching the replacements in Lammers and our injured list I think we would have been a better starting 11 with them. Also I think they both would have flourished under clement and let’s be honest Fat Ange was no mug especially domestically and tactically bull rushed us. But onwards and upwards time to move forward even though I loved Alfie.

9.) 25 Dec 2023 14:51:27
Really frustrates me sometimes that our fans just can't seem to let old players go, Kent and Alfie are gone and they are gone for a reason, they both chucked it. We won one league title in 5 attempts with the 2 of them here, so why on earth would we bring any of them back to help with a title charge?

10.) 25 Dec 2023 15:14:09
Cmon lads - Colin Stein is two stone lighter than Alfie and would still do a better job - "and in the past they must remain" phrase comes to mind re Alfie and RK - let's move forwards and not backwards!

11.) 25 Dec 2023 15:24:03
Colin Stein - now he was a top player. My idol as a kid. loved the big man ❤??.

12.) 25 Dec 2023 16:20:37
Morelos was crap for ages, not a chance I want to see him back. I'd say pay for Shankland and get a few seasons at least of regular goals. Something we haven't had for a while from a striker.

13.) 25 Dec 2023 16:35:59
Why don't you come back and play Mark Walters? i'd rather that than Morelos.

14.) 25 Dec 2023 17:01:58
Get el ? back he would be the best striker at our club.

15.) 25 Dec 2023 17:36:36
Alf apart from Europe, has never been or will ever be the prolific goalscorer we badly need. He's gone let it go.

16.) 25 Dec 2023 17:49:18
I can't believe people are still talking about getting Kent and or Morelos back. They were dreadful last couple of seasons and Sima has already scored more goals than Kent did in the Spl. Both had they're time! Move on.

17.) 25 Dec 2023 17:51:54
Take Alfie back, he only gets paid per goal. He needs an incentive, there it is. Being realistic, he downed tools a long time ago, no use to us now.

18.) 25 Dec 2023 18:35:36
Agree re plenty falling out, but really folk need to define mis treating,

19.) 25 Dec 2023 18:50:11
The player worst treated was Kamara. It got so bad that the player was advised by his agent not to engage at all with Beale which led to Rangers almost withholding wages due to not showing up to training.

20.) 25 Dec 2023 19:25:12
I don’t want Morelos back but would rather have him than shanks hopefully the DOF and manager pull out a cracker.

21.) 25 Dec 2023 19:26:23
Market garden that was a joke for the camera. also morelos not exactly prolific. Did he ever score 20+ in a season.

22.) 25 Dec 2023 19:41:18
Borna, ultimately Kamara was employed by Rangers and paid very well for it. Beale might have been awful but Kamara as a professional can't just choose not to play or not to come to training. These players are paid to be fit and available at any time they are needed regardless if they like the manager or not. Kamara was another that is a quality player but gave his all in about 25% of games.

23.) 26 Dec 2023 00:30:38
Absolute rubbish the players fell out with Gio when they were on pre season in Portugal when he told them they weren't there on a piss up.

24.) 26 Dec 2023 00:38:03
Why would you take back 2 players who were relatively unsuccessful in their time at the club, over rated whilst at the club and both have certainly been found out since leaving the club!

25.) 26 Dec 2023 10:41:23
Falling out is irrelevant as players get paid a lot of money to be professional and give 100% regardless of whether they agree with or like the manager and that applies to any football club.
Loved Alfredo but wouldn’t have him back as he appeared to down tools in the end.
I’d be open minded for Kent coming back but prefer to send a message out to other players that they should think twice before leaving and move forward without him.

26.) 26 Dec 2023 11:20:39
Alfie should be nowhere near a Rangers shirt, even a fully fit sharp Alfie ( more chance of winning lottery ) would cost us the title with a red card, would rather play with a Under 16 striker till end of season.

27.) 26 Dec 2023 16:58:41
El??? we are trying to win the league not chuck it away.

28.) 26 Dec 2023 19:57:32
Why are folk so against shankland? Scores goals for fun in all the comps we're in pretty much. Got a coule in Europe as well. Far better than anyone we've got, he knows the league well so won't need time to settle. He's in his prime and wouldn't cost a ridiculous amount, no more than lammers or dessers, bith of which he's far better than.

29.) 26 Dec 2023 21:16:04
Very rare for rangers to go back in for a player they deemed not good enough in the past.



28 Aug 2023 10:13:48
Harry Souter again omitted from match day squad at the weekend.


1.) 28 Aug 2023 11:04:54
Seen Stevie Clifford said on Rangers Review they had asked the club about Harry Souttar and were told it was a non starter. Guess time will tell.

2.) 28 Aug 2023 11:09:11
Stevie Clifford says he asked if any truth in Harry Soutar coming and was told he definitely isn't coming to Rangers.

3.) 28 Aug 2023 11:15:22
Harry Soutter will not be signing for us confirmed today by Stevie Clifford on RR.

4.) 28 Aug 2023 11:46:30
Rangers Review have said that the club are denying interest in him.

5.) 28 Aug 2023 13:32:42
Really hope RR are incorrect on this one. I would really like Harry to sign, and if not him I think we really need another CB in.

6.) 28 Aug 2023 13:39:41
The club have denied it in the past regarding us being linked with players.

Happened with Zungu, Ramsey, Flanagan and plenty of others.

We’ve held talks with both Souttar and Leicester regarding him but it’s ultimately down to what happens with Ben Davies.

7.) 28 Aug 2023 13:45:30
Copeland you hearing anything regarding any winger/ forward or you think our only business will be a cb if davies moves on.

8.) 28 Aug 2023 14:18:44
Heart and hand say we are still interested.

9.) 28 Aug 2023 18:13:35
ypu think leicster would want a chunk of the 15 mill they spent on harry.

10.) 28 Aug 2023 18:19:40
Wingers still an option, would need probably Wright to leave.

11.) 28 Aug 2023 19:41:11
Zungu, Ramsey, Flanagan? not exactly salubrious company lads!

12.) 28 Aug 2023 20:19:13
Was told earlier an enquiry made about taking Amad Diallo on loan.

13.) 28 Aug 2023 20:34:38
Missing the point Jimbo?

Club will deny it unless they know for sure it will happen.

14.) 28 Aug 2023 21:14:01
Diallo would be great but how do we fit him and Matondo into squads both match day and euro?

I feel if we sign another wide player then mb has realised his way of playing won’t work as he’s quickly brought Matondo into the fold and another would suggest he’s realised what he thought was way to go won’t work. What doesn that say for players and style he’s brought in?

15.) 28 Aug 2023 22:07:03
Diallo is waiting to see if he has ruptured acl bankie.

Man Utd say if not he will be out for couple of months.

16.) 30 Aug 2023 11:55:42
I thought Wright would be gone by now. he's no future with us.



15 Jun 2023 20:33:53
Davie Weir is the preferred option.


1.) 15 Jun 2023 20:54:40
A hard task pulling him away from Brighton mate.

2.) 15 Jun 2023 21:45:43
Personally can’t see it with his family down there and he is well thought of.

3.) 16 Jun 2023 02:12:30
Have they asked the fans if they even want a dof, I know what my answer is.

4.) 16 Jun 2023 07:26:27
Ask the supporters Lithium-1872?
Absolutely they'll appoint a dof because that's the model they believe in and we would have absolutely no say in that my friend ?.

5.) 16 Jun 2023 08:15:51
Why should the fans decide what roles are required?

6.) 16 Jun 2023 08:27:04
The fans don’t have a choice in DOF ?‍♂️.

7.) 16 Jun 2023 11:12:19
Fans should decide if we need a DoF? ? ? Tell me you don't get modern football without actually telling me. Deary me. There's so much involved now a manager just needs to manage.

8.) 16 Jun 2023 15:05:47
His son at Brighton too and a club who are apparently doing no bad and got plenty of money. hmmm I wonder .

9.) 16 Jun 2023 15:15:48
A manager imo should pick the players they like/ want football is so so different in everybody’s eyes some just cannot see what other can and vice versa a dof should take care of finances and try to get deals done not pick alternative players! If a player the manager wants cannot be got it should go back to the manager to select an alternative not the dof just my opinion!

10.) 16 Jun 2023 15:41:27
I honestly think director of football role vastly over rated but modern managers seem to prefer some of the weight of the club taken off them and better for family life less travelling.

11.) 16 Jun 2023 17:18:42
It’s the clubs that want it more than the managers gofor.

12.) 16 Jun 2023 21:11:23
Why don’t they just start doing a fans poll for new signings as well… lol.

13.) 16 Jun 2023 21:52:41
Imagine somebody telling Alex Ferguson or Walter smith who to buy lol.

14.) 17 Jun 2023 11:39:17
No one telling MIchael Beale who to buy if he gets it right, then i see no reason for us to waste money on a director of football, I would let Bisgrove take care of the financial side of it and let beale find source and convince the players he wants in.



25 May 2023 17:22:06
I'm told Max Johnson at Motherwell has been monitored as potential summer signing.


1.) 25 May 2023 17:28:33
He's a player we should sign but we all know we won't.

We won't shop in SPFL.

2.) 25 May 2023 19:28:58
Yep he should be considered and quickly, suggestions he will go abroad but his father didn't enjoy doing that so he may not.

3.) 25 May 2023 17:33:46
Alan Johnston's son. I've seen him play, Bankie, but he didn't stand out. One for the future, maybe?

4.) 25 May 2023 20:27:29
Issue if Johnston moves within Scotland becomes pretty expensive, move out with Scotland a development fee.

5.) 25 May 2023 21:02:23
Johnston is a right back. Some say Dujon Sterling has signed. Doubt we sign 2 right backs.

6.) 25 May 2023 21:52:19
Not seen much of him, is he a better prospect than Devine?

7.) 25 May 2023 22:25:47
Miles ahead of devine. Powerful, Direct and very attacking.

8.) 25 May 2023 22:35:22
Ehl by an absolute mile.

9.) 25 May 2023 22:52:08
Callam r we certainly will shop in spfl

we have too for Scottish quota.

10.) 25 May 2023 22:53:36
Ehl for me devine has not put a foot wrong and has been quite harshly treated considering his performances in a position that's not his normal place.

11.) 26 May 2023 04:08:47
Gofor we have Jack, Mccrorie, king, Lowry, Wright (gk), Devine and soutter for next season.

Assuming none of them leave that's 7 out of 8 we will probably add 1 youngster to the 25man squad. So we don't technically need to shop in Scotland.

12.) 26 May 2023 08:48:16
Callum please mate tell me how u don’t understand a player requires to b over 21 to be counted if from rangers academy.

13.) 26 May 2023 11:21:45
John only requires to be at the club 3 years between age of 15 to 21 to qualify I'm sure they changed it

Also callam my point is players like jack souttar won't be here for long we have to continually look at Scottish market I didn't say it would be this year just said we will be scouting and we will sign players just didn't say when.

14.) 26 May 2023 11:43:24
John, you can register U21 players to be apart of your squad. It just takes a spot in your 25 man registered squad.

Correct me if I'm wrong but you can only have 4 Homegrown aka trained in the country for 3 years between 15/ 17 and the other 4 have to be locally trained aka trained at rangers.

To make up the 8.

15.) 26 May 2023 11:46:07
Ahh okay gofor I get you, I agree that we will buy if we don't go for Johnston now he'll be gone is all I meant haha.

16.) 26 May 2023 11:50:15
Was suppose to be trained between 15/ 21*.

17.) 26 May 2023 11:59:39
Gofor not what the article says, means our admin and rangers actually don’t know the rules,

Have u actually read the article.

18.) 26 May 2023 12:03:59
Call am I know that, but why would u do that, nonsensical to the extreme.

Call am please read it,

8 over 21 trained by rangers.


Four trained in Scottish academy and 4 in rangers

If under 21 they r b list,

Go for everyday a school day, can u direct me to what article you r reading this in, also where is Souttar going.

19.) 26 May 2023 12:19:01
Yep just read rule now 15, changed at start of season

Still does not change re 21 and A list and B list.

20.) 26 May 2023 13:52:38
Not even going to entertain you.

21.) 26 May 2023 13:56:41
Nonsensical to the extreme hahaha registering a u21 to be in the minimum 25 player squad doesn't do anything man you can still use more than than 25 King, Devine and lowry was registered as part of our 25man squad this season. But whatever you're always right.

22.) 26 May 2023 15:03:24
Glad u think so callam, I certainly don’t.

King Devine Lowry WERE NOT registered as part of 25, they were on b list.

I give up.

Does Butland have a valuation buy out clause in his contract?


1.) 19 Mar 2024 22:33:00
This has been covered ad naseum on here?‍?.

2.) 20 Mar 2024 01:15:38
He does now, on news tonight, gers put 15m valuation. This brilliant amount for PC. Mark our intentions run in. Might get real CF/ CB. I can see some bears already crying but got to speculate/ accumulate. We've got relatively handy young keeper worth testing. Let's take whatever we can.

3.) 20 Mar 2024 05:54:51
"Nauseum" back to school, 15m think that should be a starting point.

4.) 20 Mar 2024 08:16:21
Fork there might be something in his contract that allows him to go for 15 million. We got Kamara for 50k not because Dundee wanted to sell him for that but because of a clause in his contract. Some you win some you lose.

5.) 20 Mar 2024 11:03:12
Boom boomwe got glen kamara for 50k because he was out of contract a few month later.

6.) 20 Mar 2024 11:57:35
Bb150 covered to death on here mate, it was initially being said 5mill was the release value, seen that the club have allegedly now put on 15mill clause for him to go, but that will be a club call, won't be contractual unless his terms have recently been updated.



11 Mar 2024 10:14:56
Badly need at least some of Dowell, Cantwell, Sima, Daleno, Cortez and Jack back for the run in.


1.) 11 Mar 2024 10:38:41
Anyone got better idea of when these players might be back?

2.) 11 Mar 2024 11:56:03
Cantwell and Sima are the only ones who are closest to a comeback I think based on there socials, Jack seems to be going through a play one miss one just now.

3.) 11 Mar 2024 11:56:22
Bankie even just cantwell and sima would give us a massive lift.

4.) 11 Mar 2024 12:00:48
We don’t even get updates on dowell it’s like we have just gave up on him as a player who’ll offer us anything for remainder of season but yeah updates would be good on Cantwell and sima as those are only two I see as possibly making a difference in run in. Jack is becoming more of a lost cause than ever.

5.) 11 Mar 2024 15:56:40
G4, when did Jack last play a full game?, or 3 full games in a row.
Play one miss one?, I think you are being very kind.

6.) 11 Mar 2024 16:37:39
Clement has said many times he doesn't want to talk about injured players - rather those available.

Dowell was out for several months from his injury- so we aren't going to get updates until near the end of the season.



10 Mar 2024 17:09:02
Surprised starting line up same as Thursday. Can only think we're hoping to close the game out and make changes in the second half. Also no Jack on the bench, another surprise for me. Good to see Matondo returning to the squad and expect to see him at some point.


1.) 10 Mar 2024 18:30:49
Jack injured again.

2.) 10 Mar 2024 19:36:42
That puts an end to calls for jack to get a new contract. Absolutely not.

3.) 10 Mar 2024 19:55:41
Definitely Dado, I am a big fan of Jack but he is getting worse in terms of playing time.

Think using his wage on Barron would be a good move. Not sure if PC/ NK would be into him but I am always impressed by him.

Good player mate but no room for sentiment.

Jacks unfit and overweight. Time he moved to Killie or similar.

Unfit because he can't run long enough without getting injured to get fit, shame, fit and on form we'd need and use him in the run in.

Turned out to be an okay weekend and now we have chance to reset. The win rate of our CH's at crosses in both boxes is way below par and needs to significantly improve.

Another Jordan Jones, no where near good enough.

John, he has a employment contract and is not screwing us or holding the fans or the club in contempt. You clearly don’t like him and are entitled to your opinion. In my opinion he is the best natural striker at Ibrox. When we signed him we knew all about his injury record and took a risk. But for his injury record he would be playing at a much higher level than Rangers.

John, what do you mean treated our fans with contempt for last 2 years. It’s clear he wants to play but is not fit enough. What’s contempt got to do with it?

The boy wants to come to Rangers, unfortunately will not now be this year. Well done Coops for admitting you made a regular mistake on the subject.

Coops preferable to Bily Davies. Clement going nowhere anytime soon, relax and enjoy the next few years.
