John25 I’m hearing from a family member down in London that Jake Cooper is close to agreeing terms! Do you think there is anything in this that’s concrete my friend as I know this was one you mentioned?


1.) 23 Oct 2021 21:16:10
Jake Cooper has been on the cards for a wee while, what's your opinion on him and how much would he cost?

2.) 23 Oct 2021 21:38:21
I’m told very realistic option, especially as deal for Harry Souter looks beyond us.

3.) 24 Oct 2021 07:17:34
As a small matter of interest John25🤔If rangers had the chance/ choice to sign either jake cooper or harry souttar, which one would you prefer we signed mate🤔.

4.) 24 Oct 2021 07:32:28
Souter. But now valued at 15 million so not happening.
Although the two of them and doehki would be some back 3.

5.) 24 Oct 2021 07:57:22
Only my opinion John25 and watched jake cooper and harry souttar and absolutely nothing between them going on what i've seen of both centre hslfs mate🤔.

6.) 24 Oct 2021 08:09:11
I honestly don't think gerrard would sign both jake cooper and harry souttar even if he could anyway🤔
Both similar styled centre halfs from what i've seen like the style of big helander who's superb in my eyes👌Cooper is a leftie right enough, same as helander and as we know left footed centre halfs, are much harder to come by🤔The reason i think gerrard wouldn't sign both even if he could, is because gerrard likes the foil of a rugged, no nonsense, old fashioned centre half,
beside a ball playing football centre half🤔.

7.) 24 Oct 2021 08:32:56
Souttar over Cooper aw day long but he is well
Out of our price range now unfortunately.

8.) 24 Oct 2021 09:38:59
SGL in a back three doehki always plays right
Souter in the middle and Cooper on the left.

9.) 24 Oct 2021 11:28:49
Big Cooper can play as well, scores a right few goals as well.

10.) 25 Oct 2021 17:37:09
If we sign any of the names mentioned I hope it’s Doehki. Looks a player and one we can sell on for a profit.

11.) 25 Oct 2021 18:50:06
SGL, 17 million between them, Souter now getting quoted at 20 million and Cooper 3 million.

I don’t have Facebook but got a call on the road back from the game from a mate who said Defoe has been in a car accident can anyone confirm?


1.) 28 Sep 2019 19:52:50
He’s ok. 👍🏻.



25 Jul 2016 21:41:15
Well tonight's game Barton strolled through it no end, Kranc just looks like he floats on air but my main positive is how good Rossiter looked in the 30mins he got! He put a tackle in and I know the opposition wasn't the best but he showed great urgency and he knows how to play a pass and also the most important thing he plays the right pass! Can't wait to see this lad get a full 90mins I think this boy is a steal at £250k.


1.) 25 Jul 2016 21:51:31
Wilson/ Keirnan looked as comfortable as ever with Barton in front.

Our Joey strolled it tonight. He'll stroll most games up here but his quality is there for everyone to see.

Can't wait for Hamilton.

2.) 25 Jul 2016 22:01:57
Guys really think we need to get a grip on reality. We had over 20 shots on goal and only scored 3, 1 of them a penalty. Barton was not impressive for me, he plays more sideways passes than Barry Ferguson did, . McKay? Why does he put the brakes on when he goes past even poor defenders. For me a lot of huffing and puffing to no great effect against a very poor team member
Let's hope it gets better soon?

3.) 25 Jul 2016 22:47:12
I don't want a grip on whatever reality your on bil72! The guys above are right Barton added a lot of protection to the cb's which was previously missing, rossiter likewise! Mckay wasn't as good as previous couple of games but forester more than made up for that with his energetic clever play, tavs delivery into the box was also very good.

A lot of positives to be taken even if it was against weaker opposition! We still have to go out and break these teams down.

4.) 25 Jul 2016 22:53:27

Can only beat what's in front of you! Barton and kranjkaer didn't need to come out first gear and still strolled it. I thought Barton was mom to be honest, hate guys like you, no matter what happens you'll never be happy.

5.) 25 Jul 2016 22:57:51
Bloody hell! I thought the team played well tonight and hardly had to get out of first gear. Remember most of these guys are finding their feet. As the old saying goes - you can please some of the people etc etc. But yes the lad Rossiter looks a steal. We are looking good, dare I say it!

6.) 25 Jul 2016 23:03:37
I thought Barry McKay bossed the whole game till he was taken of Fun!

7.) 25 Jul 2016 23:33:57
I was at game and thought Barton was a bit off the pace too, Mckay is great to watch and hope he goes from strenth to strenth. Stranraer are very average and the test will be when the league starts, lots of chances and ahould have had more goals but that'll come as game go on. Barton will be better as games go on too but all in all decent win! Moan the gers.

8.) 25 Jul 2016 23:46:29
Jordan Rossiter is going to be some player - I did mention him a few days ago and tinight he showed a maturity beyond his years - You can see the style of Gerrard in his play and movement - Superb signing -.

9.) 26 Jul 2016 00:47:58
Pierre, you must not have been at same game I was as Barton strolled it! In first gear I may add. Broke up play when needed, kept it simple but moving, won his tackles etc he was our best player with kranjkaer I thought, but ofcourse entitled to opinions.

10.) 26 Jul 2016 01:13:13
Didn't think Barton looked match fit and a few loose passes but his class is obvious. Thought mckay was superb. Niko oozes class too. Rossiter just slotted in to Bartons position like a glove.

11.) 26 Jul 2016 05:31:56
At the game last night and thought joey barton's passing range was very good, can't agree with a couple of the above posters that didn't think barton was good last night, although still not 100% match fit he oozed class and cruised the game and our defence looked a helluva lot tighter with his presence, kranjcar looked good in phases although a wee bit to go in fitness also, barrie mckay superb, but I've always been raving about him and I'm a big fan of his.

12.) 26 Jul 2016 08:08:50
People still need to remember that this is still really pre season. A silly competition format that has stopped us playing harder competition. The team has only conceded 1 goal. And I think in total there has been 10 shots in at our goal so it says that something has improved. Keep calm bears.

13.) 26 Jul 2016 11:11:12
Thorn76, i also thought wilson had a good game, he seems good when he has experienced players round about him, but he needs to stand on hiis own two feet, as he won't always have such comfort blankets around him, imo, he is old enough to play a good game, that's why he is vunrable.

14.) 26 Jul 2016 12:55:32
got to say for me McKay should have got man of the match but niko a close second the guys class oozed out over the pitch!

for me to say barton covered our defence well is a joke as we didn't have any defending to do.

rossiter for me would have been man of the match if he had played 90 boy reminds me of a young barry ferguson which despite what bil72 (the pessimist) says barry was a great player for rangers and if rossiter has a rangers carrer like him i'd be over the moon.

15.) 26 Jul 2016 15:49:29
Thought Barton looked overweight last night though still fit enough to stroll through a game like that. Rossiter reminds me more of Roy Keane than Stevie G. Kranjcar when fully fit will be the best of all the new boys. Think the League Cup has been good for us, for the fact that instead of meaningless friendlies, these small clubs have been competitive without ever threatening us. Its let us get our match fitness up to speed.

Stuck in traffic on the way home but who cares ….

Thought Bassey was quality at centre.
Alfie was kinda back to his bullish self.
Goldson dare I say it looked solid.
Kent stop n start but thought he played well.

McGregor what can be said of the double save 💙💙

After two days of training with Gio and the team you could see a difference and can’t wait to see when he actually gets his team set up and playing they way he wants 💙💙

Happy bear the night 🇬🇧.


1.) 26 Nov 2021 05:34:19
Superb performance to get through to the last 32 and got to agree Bassey looked immense and gave the defence a bit of balance being left sided.
Morelos as you say had a bit more hunger and desire and a great finish for his first goal- good to see him playing much further forward rather than dropping back to link play.
Got to mention Davis and Kamara who worked tirelessly in midfield and overall it’s a positive start under Gio. 😀.



21 Nov 2021 18:54:58
Just back from the game and what is there to say?

They were more hungry, they fought for the second ball, more than a few of our players didn’t turn up to the stadium never mind the pitch and for me how Alfie managed to get 90 mins is beyond me!

McGregor :- didn’t do much wrong but I think it’s time for the gloves to be hung up and would like my goalkeeper to command the box.

Borno:- Think he’s a shadow of the player he was at start of last season and even though we won 55 I thought he was poor second half of the season. If a decent bid comes in he can go.

Tav:- Don’t know what to think as I ain’t seen replay of the first goal but why did he not push up with rest of the defence for the second goal? Nathan I think it’s your time son.

Goldson:- Off you pop and thanks for helping us to 55.

Balogan:- one good performance then two or three mediocre so unsure about him.

Arfield and Aribo:- thought both played not bad today but Davo it’s the first I thought he looked his age.

Kent:- if decent bid comes in and I say decent bid I’d let him go. Two goals down and he gets subbed only to slowly walk off the field where he should be running off actually looked like we were two up and he was time wasting.

Alfie:- not kicked a ball all season, looks slower than a fortnight in Bar-L and to be honest hasn’t looked interested in a while.

Today the players had a chance to show their new manager what a title winning team was about but for me no heart or passion. No creativity and want to pass teams off the park but we ain’t got the players playing to a standard to do that.

For me Gio has a big big job on his hands and the first thing he needs to do is get confidence back in the team and bring back the fire.

I never ever knock any player but today I’m struggling and left the stadium after the final whistle trying to get my head round what I just witnessed on the park.

We’re Rangers crying out loud, title winners last season and title winners by a great distance.

Gio please bring back the fire that us Rangers fans want to see and if we got beat today and showed the passion that us supporters carry for our great club of say best team won but in honesty we should be smashing teams like Hibs.

Sorry for the rant but disappointment is coursing through me this evening.


1.) 21 Nov 2021 19:36:03
Not sure that we could have expected much more in hindsight! There was probably no coaching for 10 days and the guys taking the team today were Junior Football Level.
All that today proved is what we already knew, the Team lacks leadership, our defence is woeful. Not one of that back four today even merits pass marks and both Tavernier and Goldson were abysmal.
We need to hope that we can offload a number of players for a decent fee come January and give GVB the lions share of the funds to bring in his own players.
Lets stop wasting wages on perennial failures like Lundsrum and start going for guys that will fight for the jersey.
I remember when Advocaat was manager that he said that it didn't matter who was captain because he wanted a team of leaders on the park. That is what we need to get back to. At the moment there isn't a Leader on the Park.
I would sell Barasic, Kamara, Kent, (and if we can get anyone to give us money for them I would get rid of Goldson and Lundstrum) .
We need a new keeper, Patterson in at right back, two new centre backs, a quality midfield player and a winger.
Hopefully some of our young players will be able to make the step up and hopefully we will find a couple of Leaders that we can sign!

Don’t disrespect junior football coaches .

Wait He, Morelos and Davis are the only two irreplaceable 🤔🤔 anyway I definitely think he’ll be here another season but out everyone I’d want to keep Alfie for one more season 💙.

I said on my after game rant yesterday about the nature he strolled off the pitch. His demeanour looked like we were two goals up and killing time.

Watched it earlier John and this guy can speak and you just know that he certainly has a vision for our great club. His elocution is immaculate and you can see this guy has passion oozing out him. Gio knows what’s needed and I just hope some of our most fickle fans get onboard with what the both of them can bring. I for one hope he can take us that step forward and with our next two games what a platform he can start from.

Guys job I’m in I always say we win as a team and lose as a team …. it can be all ifs and buts ……. I’ve never singled out anyone in the blue but sometimes we all have an off day in any walk of life but to say it was him or him or him is wrong so great first post 👍.

SGL I’m of the age where I’ve seen the three of them and for me Borno has been immense even more so after his shaky start. For me Arthur has got to be the best out the three of them and I’ve met him loads whilst he played and most occasions was in Sainsbury’s in Hamilton whilst doing the weekly shop lol. I remember the day both he and Larson was in the store and I was getting a quick pic with Arthur and he said “ if you ram him with your shopping cart I’ll let your wife in the photo “ hahaha he was a good character that absolutely loved our club just as much as the other two.
