Anyone know how airfield not been involved in pre season yet? Also john 25 any info regarding offerborh? You indicated he was doing well at training but not involved in games so far?

Bears den

1.) 12 Jul 2021 07:29:02
Yep I was told he was doing very well. Seems to then have aggravated an injury.

2.) 12 Jul 2021 12:12:09
Lets hope its not another injury prone signing!



08 Jul 2021 22:19:33
John 25 do we get 200k for Jamie barjonas from kelty hearts?

Bears den

1.) 09 Jul 2021 06:17:28
lucky if kelty have £20 never mind 200.

2.) 09 Jul 2021 06:25:30
Punter. that's what i thought but john says we are due 200k small money in his words for any of these boys we released that haven't made the grade so didn't earn a new contract?

3.) 09 Jul 2021 07:44:45
Is the fee not decided between both clubs because he is under 24 and its not cross border? Was there not a rule that we had to have offered him a contract aswell that he rejected to get a development fee? 👍.

4.) 09 Jul 2021 08:49:28
Yes we get a development fee. Listen if you can’t be bothered reading the rules it’s up to you. what you r saying Craig Mullholland and Wilson r wrong.
Barjonas fee less than that based on when we signed him.

5.) 09 Jul 2021 09:02:04
John25, is spot on as that's the way it works!

6.) 09 Jul 2021 09:15:26
Was that reply to me John? Did anyone say that wilson and mulholland were wrong? I asked questions, hence the?

7.) 09 Jul 2021 09:55:21
Infact did anyone mention wilson and mulholland? Couple of people on follow follow saying that we had to have offered him a deal to get compensation. 👍.

8.) 09 Jul 2021 09:57:33
Kelty are probably the most well off club in the lower leagues right now. If you think that Kelty don't have cash, how do you think they can attract managers like Barry Ferguson and Kevin Thomson?

9.) 09 Jul 2021 10:22:35
Hope we get the development fee, does anyone know if we get development fees for the many players wee recently released? Thanks in advance 👌💙.

10.) 09 Jul 2021 10:56:49
Kelly have decent cash to fling around esp at that level.

11.) 09 Jul 2021 12:31:31
Why don’t you guys read the rules, it’s easy.
Coldo my response to bears den,
Broxi development fees were introduced to stop Man City, Chelsea Bayern Barcelona hoovering up players for nothing
It’s very well explained on epl or spfl site.

12.) 09 Jul 2021 13:25:00
Its a discussion John. Can you confirm that to get compensation then we had to have offered him deal? 👍.

13.) 09 Jul 2021 13:53:18
Coldo the answer is no, please go read the rules and why they were changed.
It was to protect smaller clubs. They develop players from early age 8 and don’t keep them . They get money pretty simple.

14.) 09 Jul 2021 14:52:50
Why would clubs get money for players they don't want? Makes no sense at all. But if that's the rules then it works out well for us. 👍.

15.) 09 Jul 2021 15:29:43
Coldo please read and give me your opinions, interesting Watford have just said on fans site they have signed mebude for a small development fee.

16.) 09 Jul 2021 16:11:10
Yeah John but was mebude offered a contract to stay? 👍.

17.) 09 Jul 2021 16:15:20
John put it this way. let's say I develop a player for 10 years and I realise when that player is aged 22 that I don't want them as they aren't good enough. So I let their contract expire and I don't offer them a new deal to stay. It doesn't make sense that I should be compensated for that if that player signs for another club. 👍.

18.) 09 Jul 2021 16:35:23
I just read what mulholland said and they way he was talking it sounded as though a lot of the boys including mebude were not offered contracts and there was no mention of compensation either👍.

19.) 09 Jul 2021 16:40:00
Just read on the official watford website, no mention of a development fee👍.

20.) 09 Jul 2021 16:42:57
We got 200k for charlie telfer development fee years ago.

21.) 09 Jul 2021 17:08:31
We offered telfer a contract though rfc92👍.

22.) 09 Jul 2021 17:31:46
Coldo I think you’re right here! It’s crazy, how can you get money for a guy yo don’t want and didn’t offer a contract to!

23.) 09 Jul 2021 17:40:41
It doesn't make sense bgate. 👍.

24.) 09 Jul 2021 18:03:47
Was never going to make it at Rangers anyway.

25.) 09 Jul 2021 18:07:18
John has this wrong! He's normally right but miles off with this.

26.) 09 Jul 2021 18:21:55
Cool Bearsden, can u quote what rules say.

27.) 09 Jul 2021 18:57:29
John your rules could put players out the game. we let a player go as he's not good enough but he can't sign for someone as the only clubs that want him can't afford him. this could be a scenario. Madness.

28.) 09 Jul 2021 19:27:40
Bearsden not my rules. Rules on spfl website. I may be totally misunderstanding them as does Wilson.
I would appreciate your read them and post a reply.

29.) 09 Jul 2021 19:57:24
Bears sadly I reread the rules.
Development fee, training costs are mandatory according to fifa, adopted by spfl.
As u suggest players could be priced out off game which is covered by all clubs, players, association being preset in specific categories.
This it states prevents a player who is released being priced out off game. Ie a rangers player going to Kelty would attract a category 4 fee applied to calculations
A rangers player going to say Chelsea attracts a category 1 fee applied to calculations.
It’s a great read only 87 pages, no wonder it is complicated.

30.) 09 Jul 2021 20:31:29
They have to refuse a new contract prior to their original contract expiring for us to get compensation John. Medube, barjonas were not offered new deals and were released so we are not due compensation. You were wrong all along. 👍.

31.) 09 Jul 2021 21:50:36
If u say so coldo,

32.) 09 Jul 2021 21:52:13
87 pages so forgive me for asking a question but i suppose we will get a development fee if we never offered a contract as we did develop them for years, would tht be correct 🤔💙.

33.) 09 Jul 2021 22:22:38
Wilson never misunderstood the rules either. 👍.

34.) 09 Jul 2021 22:47:32
No broxi. They were released. 👍.



30 Jun 2021 06:25:01
Anyone have any info regarding Lindstrom? Read on here he was at a Glasgow hotel for talks last week but its all went quiet? Probably want to much in wages/ signing on fee etc.

Bears den

1.) 30 Jun 2021 08:58:11
Might be wrong but read in the paper he's not actually a free agent until tomorrow. a lot of contracts finish last day in june.

2.) 30 Jun 2021 09:12:07
Out our price range, seems we can hardly keep our own players happy with wages.

3.) 30 Jun 2021 10:14:04
Every player signs a contract and therefore they must have been very happy to sign at the wage they are offered. What players is it that we can't keep happy with regards to their wages?

4.) 30 Jun 2021 10:14:13
Bgate wisen up mate. That's what happens now. People come here, they make their name and they move on. We're never going to be the final destination for players except rangers fans.

5.) 30 Jun 2021 11:22:23
Paul yes lundstrum free agent tomorrow but he could have signed pre contract deal to leave English football since January.

6.) 30 Jun 2021 12:01:59
I see him staying in England. Burnley, Newcastle, that kind of level.

7.) 30 Jun 2021 12:30:42
John Lundstrum wants to join but I was also hearing he wants at least 35k a week! He'd he a decent signing.

8.) 30 Jun 2021 14:17:35
Wouldn’t give him 35 k no chance.

9.) 30 Jun 2021 16:27:20
If your getting someone like Lundstrum on a free and 35k wages what's the difference say if you buy someone for 3 million on a 3yr contract and pay them 20k a week. That works out you've paid nearly 40k a week over 3 yrs.
Look at Roofe reportedly on 35k and also cost around 4 million so he's costing around 55k per week.

10.) 30 Jun 2021 17:11:59
Totally on the button three cheers. It always surprises me people can’t work that out.

11.) 30 Jun 2021 21:35:01
It could cause disharmony in the dressing room i would say, lead to majority of players agents asking for a wage increase. Someone walking in the door n becoming our highest paid player when it can't be guaranteed he would be one of our best, I'd say sign for a lower salary with the option of a wage increase performance related/ dependant. Hopefully roofe is available a lot more this season thn last as tht is a wage tht could have bn better spent considering we all knew he was injury prone, class player on his day however👌💙.

12.) 30 Jun 2021 22:46:42
Don’t want to upset the harmony with 1 higher earner than the rest. Be better to give him a lump sum and a more level playing field of a contract.

13.) 01 Jul 2021 00:27:33
Sure his contract runs out tomorrow. Can see an announcement maybe by the weekend. Hoping we land him as I have saw some clips of him and he looked a cracking player season before last. Would bring something extra to our midfield.



13 May 2021 20:23:37
John 25 did you not say goldson would be signing a new deal a few weeks ago? Has there been a problem or is the deal off?

Bears den

1.) 14 May 2021 07:24:56
Bears yes I said deal had been agreed. Can’t always be correct. My source says problem appears to be a clause that allows him to talk to other teams.
Who knows.

2.) 14 May 2021 08:23:28
Was that not several weeks ago john? If he wants to talk to other teams would that mean he is angling for a move? If that's the case surely we would want fully committed players? This being the case he should be the asset we should sell as some say we will sell an asset? I do like goldson but if he wants away.

3.) 14 May 2021 09:11:01
No idea. He and his agent will decide.

4.) 14 May 2021 10:59:16
Maybe rangers should decide now John.

5.) 14 May 2021 11:08:00
Bears den are you haven’t a go at John He gave info he can only say what he has heard.

6.) 14 May 2021 11:11:02
Remember this is a rumour site, i'm only say what I’ve heard.
I want him to stay, but what will be will be.

7.) 14 May 2021 11:21:02
No not having a go, just got a feeling goldson holding out for a return to England was hoping john could shed light as he is a respected poster whom is usually correct in my opinion.

8.) 14 May 2021 12:30:49
The issue is over his buy out clause. Rangers want it higher than he wants. As in rangers may be pricing him out of a potential move.

9.) 14 May 2021 15:50:54
I’d sell goldson for 8m no problem he’s done fine but he’s caught wanting in Europe all the time and I think with some good scouting £8m would easily get us a better defender from the continent.

10.) 14 May 2021 16:23:15
I agree with that, Connor is not irreplaceable.

11.) 14 May 2021 17:29:51
Goldson been good but is replaceable.

12.) 14 May 2021 21:29:33
How much was boumsong years ago
Central defender with his ability for around same price
would take it lol
hate too see Connor go though in all seriousness he’s been a great defender for Us and amount of games he’s played is unreal
Great professional and doesn’t get credit he deserves
no matter what happens I’ll be forever grateful for his services to our club guys no doubt.

13.) 14 May 2021 22:11:36
Tierney has set a new bar now ladies. We have quality international players (I know goldson isn't one) but helander and Kamara have been spoken about at possibly leaving and the prices are not even close to what I think we should be asking. Helander is an international - and if PREM clubs want him (leic and villa) then 15 minimum! If he's good enough to play for two of the top 6 clubs in England then we should be asking for a lot more. Same applies for Goldson in my eyes.

14.) 15 May 2021 10:17:21
The stig boumsong was a free.

15.) 15 May 2021 11:53:19
Think he means we sold him for £8m Paul.
I also agree that £15m would be my asking price for an under contract goldson. Obviously with one year
Remaining we won’t get that so £8-10m would be fair.

Positive, best first 35 minutes this season. Negative, goldson falling about again even diving!, lumping continued crosses into packed box with giants. losing against 10 men, tavernier looks like he's nervous again, big fill dropped, balogun getting towed about everywhere, Kent couldn't get past anyone, barisic can't go past a player forcing him to lump balls into packed defense, we panicked in font of a crowd, ratings
McGregor 5
Tavernier 4
Goldson 4
Balogun 2
Barasic 4
Davis 6
Airfield 4
Kent 4
Morelos 6
Wright 4.

Bears den

1.) 11 Aug 2021 10:07:04
If anything I think the crowd carried us for 45 minutes.
However, agree on most of what you've said.
I would give pass marks to Aribo (hes learned how to tackle)
Morelos, worked his socks off, with not a lot support.
Wright, just!
And as always Davis, do we really need this man to be covering box to box, left and right?
The rest I'm afraid it's very worrying.

2.) 11 Aug 2021 10:08:55
Was wondering why Alfie kicked that player on the back of his leg for no reason.

Is he reverting to his old ways in frustration games.

Is that the official stats Bears mate? .

3.) 11 Aug 2021 10:10:26
Barasic and Kent 0.

4.) 11 Aug 2021 10:55:32
Blue Billy are you having a laugh He got booked for it that’s all it was nothing less nothing more 🤦‍♂️.

5.) 11 Aug 2021 12:09:11
It was a pointless booking, petulance never far away I'm afraid.

6.) 11 Aug 2021 12:13:58
Alfie worked back to front last night putting in tackles all over the pitch, and he wasn't afraid to have a shot at goal, not this pass, pass, pass rubbish in and around the penalty box, we are missing Ryan Jack big time, they wouldn't have got the equaliser last night if Jack had been playing, I'm hoping he'll be back sooner rather than later.



10 Aug 2021 10:05:51
Team for tonight, it seems Gerrard losing faith with McGregor and mcglaughlan, surely lundstram, tavernier, barasic, Kent etc too!

Bears den

1.) 10 Aug 2021 10:10:56
Thank God you're not picking the team! 🤣.

2.) 10 Aug 2021 10:17:09
We've bit early to be on the drink is it not? McGregor will 100% be in goal tonight.

3.) 10 Aug 2021 10:20:11
I'll have a pint of whatever you are on please👍.

4.) 10 Aug 2021 10:21:22
Not a bad team youngsters might shake it up a bit.

5.) 10 Aug 2021 10:41:22
Losing faith, 😂😂😂😂😂 there is zero chance mccrorie starting.

6.) 10 Aug 2021 11:14:21
I appreciate that we all have different opinions bears den but I just can’t follow your logic around the team selection. You are missing all four players who were short listened for player of the season last season. We need to get behind the players who are struggling and spur them on, dropping them all for a champions league qualifier is a non starter in my opinion.

7.) 10 Aug 2021 11:25:33
Thanks chunky, I would actually play McGregor barring injury but don't know what's happening with him, the other guys that normally play ( teachers pets) need a kick up the backside.

8.) 10 Aug 2021 13:39:34
Bearsden I’d also start king and Lowry for helander and morelos.



06 Aug 2021 09:28:28
Keep reading about Ali McCann, as Davis long term replacement. Is it just me or does anyone else feel McCann is more of a stopper in midfield than a creator? I think McCann is good at what he does but a Davis replacement no.

Bears den



05 Aug 2021 19:34:56
Anyone know how much we got for Jones? Wee bit concerned this season Davis our best midfielder at 36,airfield getting injuries like Jack, lundstrum doesn't look any better than we have actually looks a yard off pace. Morelos probably needs a few weeks to get match fit. itten actually done well the other night but probably won't start on Saturday. If we don't make champions league do we need to sell a star? Stewart, Jones, Murphy, probably Hastie and barker could be off only sakala coming in in that position, maybe an upgrade but maybe leave us short in that area of pitch if we get injuries or suspension. I think this season we must do what we can to win the league for obvious reason as the green backs will in my opinion come back stronger this season.

Bears den

1.) 05 Aug 2021 20:11:55
Some English papers saying Wigan paid 600k.

2.) 05 Aug 2021 20:47:09
Ffs give lundstrum a chance 🤦‍♂️.

3.) 05 Aug 2021 20:59:45
I wouldn’t worry, Stewart, Jones, Hastie, barker and Murphy. How much game use and impact did those have last year, virtually nil. As it sat ands we still have wright, Kent, Sakala, itten, Morelos, Aribo, Hagi, roofe and Defoe. A bit short in midfield if we injuries but I’m sure that will be addressed.

4.) 05 Aug 2021 21:08:12
£250k rising to £500k for Jones.

5.) 06 Aug 2021 09:24:58
What Murphy do you mean? Jamie? He joined hibs last year on loan with an obligation to make it permanent at the end of the season as he was out of contract with us.

6.) 06 Aug 2021 12:24:39
Reports sneaking through now are saying it was £200,000 Wigan paid for Jordan Jones though I heard £250,000 with a 10% sell on fee.



04 Aug 2021 09:15:19
Well Patterson must be chapping Gerrard's doar now, tavernier has done a tavernier again and sold the jerseys. He had a few good moments but these count for nothing when you sell goals like that. Lindstrom was poor, actually thought often caused some problems, airfield was poor. we need to find another gear as we were outfought and looked a bit tired.

Bears den

1.) 04 Aug 2021 09:23:00
Stay calm, seasons only just started. Malmo well on their season. No need to panic. We'll be better at Ibrox.

2.) 04 Aug 2021 09:29:42
We’ve got to give praise to the team for how they never gave up. Jeez o one defeat and people wanting half the team sold, Tav has been outstanding for us last season makes a mistake and he’s to be sold. Arfield done well to give us 90 mins he has hardly played any pre season games. It’s time for the fans to get behind the team next week do that and we will be fine.

3.) 04 Aug 2021 09:32:30
Really nervous about next week though! We can still do it but we looked so off the pace last night it’s a worry!

4.) 04 Aug 2021 09:55:25
Tav was good last season and kinda fell away at the end before his injury.

5.) 04 Aug 2021 09:55:46
Player of the year last year one bad Minute n he’s out 😂.

6.) 04 Aug 2021 10:34:39
Good post Jaws, some valid points 👍👏.

7.) 04 Aug 2021 10:36:52
i am utterly amazed with some rangers supporters. keep their mouths shut when the players are doing well but secretly just waiting for a slip up and bam ready to pounce. Support your team and players through thick and thin. Sure it was poor from Tav but he doesn't over night become rotten.

8.) 04 Aug 2021 10:54:56
R1 he wasn’t my player of the year.

9.) 04 Aug 2021 11:30:32
No maybe not Storm but he was the SPL players player of the year involved in a ridiculous amount of goals and the best defensive record in many a year. His peers said last season he was the best player in Scotland u can’t argue with that.
