Looking likely Yilmaz will move back to Turkey on loan, that’s why he’s left out of the Euro squad.


1.) 12 Sep 2023 21:02:21
Hopefully a loan with obligation to buy and whoever he goes to pay his full wage at least.

2.) 12 Sep 2023 21:35:48
The two favourites to sign him are Besiktas, (his previous club), who want him on Local and Galatasaray who earlier in the summer were keen on a permanent transfer but I understand that their valuation was well below ours.

Fernabahce were rumoured to have an interest but what I am hearing from Istanbul is that they are not currently looking for a left back.

3.) 12 Sep 2023 22:04:14
He’s left out because a numbers game and he’s always injured.

4.) 13 Sep 2023 01:44:16
Berkshire say it like it is

We overpaid again.

5.) 13 Sep 2023 04:58:52
One half decent match in his time here and we paid at least double what we paid for Barasic. gers need to realise they were played here and are not getting anywhere near what they paid for Yilmaz.

6.) 13 Sep 2023 06:45:47
Seriously looks like the guys heart and head do not lie at Ibrox - time for him to move on and for us to get a true defensive solid left back - hope Devine gets a run at that side of park in the interim as he has never let us down when covering for Tavernier.

7.) 13 Sep 2023 06:58:47
Was always a strange one signing a young lad from Turkey for that fee, Maybe because of our past history with Tugay we felt that this would work, historically not that many Turkish players have settled in British football, they tend to do well in either their own country or Germany which has a huge Turkish community.
And he is young as well, sounds like he has never truly settled here.

8.) 13 Sep 2023 07:43:46
Aye makes sense 1 LB tae January f##k me are the banter years back getting a bit of a joke.

9.) 13 Sep 2023 07:47:16
Hes 4ft tall we literally replaced Bassey with him ?.

10.) 13 Sep 2023 08:23:34
Yilmaz ain’t good enough!

11.) 13 Sep 2023 09:53:12
He's good enough to play for turkey at 18 and any top side in turkey would like him signed by he's no good.

12.) 13 Sep 2023 10:05:03
How do you know yately he has hardly played to come to that conclusion.

13.) 13 Sep 2023 10:29:29
Looks like we’ll never know, I feel sorry for the lad, he did’nt set the transfer fee we overpaid, but the top Turkish sides see something in him, if rumours are to be believed.

14.) 13 Sep 2023 12:05:56
Wet cardboard let him go.

15.) 13 Sep 2023 12:26:15
All of you are on here worshipping the ground John27 walks on but you lay no attention to what he’s said. Have you not seen his posts when it comes to Yilmaz? He is declaring himself unfit to play.

If this is the type of player h is we need to move him on. Rangers play twice a week and we need guys who are fit an available.

16.) 13 Sep 2023 12:52:06
Once again we have overlooked homegrown talent in favour of signing players like Yilmaz. We make the same mistake every transfer window. Needs changed along with our useless manager ????.

17.) 13 Sep 2023 13:08:10
If Yilmaz is declaring himself unfit then he needs sold.

18.) 13 Sep 2023 13:39:27
Yilmaz who doesn't want to play for us and Barasic who rips his tights - can't play against Celtic but ok for country - both need punted ASAP and play our own - get Davies out there or better still Devine - we need solid back four with no injury greeting face overpaid superstars dictating to us!

19.) 13 Sep 2023 13:46:51
It was a mistake signing the boy unless we are going to play in a system that suits him . He is a wing back more used to playing with a back three. If we really want to bring out the best in him we should try it, as it would also suit, Tav, Souttar and Davies and allow us to play with two strikers without leaving gaps in the wide areas. If we are not ready to make that change then the boy should be sold, not loaned and certainly not when the window is shut and we can`t get a replacement. We seem to love to shoot ourselves in the foot and leave ourselves short in key positions, last season it was centre back and this season its left back. Devine looked okay last season but Sterling really struggled getting forward last Sunday.

20.) 13 Sep 2023 13:58:29
If this is true, and Yilmaz is declaring himself unfit to play, then he needs moved on. Add this to his lb colleague Barisic soiling himself when the heat is on, that's some state our lb area is in.

For all the abuse Tav gets on here, and elsewhere, that's one guy who would never refuse to play, or sh#t the bed during a game. Work that one out.

21.) 13 Sep 2023 14:22:21
A stronger manager would've moved Tavernier further up the pitch or moved him on, years ago. His deficiencies in defence cause the team far more problems, than what his scoring outlay does. The proof is in the lack of trophy success for the team. Ricksen, Bale, TAA are all other examples of a manager recognising that.
For a Rangers captain to win just 2 trophies in 8 years is embarrassing, for him to be inducted into the prestigious Hall Of Fame is insulting to the former Rangers greats of the past and to the players who have missed out. Tavernier couldn't lace Gary Stevens boots as a full back, or shine his winners medal collection.


22.) 13 Sep 2023 14:31:19
Gazgers231 obviously not getting the gist of my post. Facts! ??.

23.) 13 Sep 2023 15:28:28
No I do lol and I don’t disagree with the fact our LB area is horrendous. We could have had Josh Doig playing here but chose to splash out on Yilmaz. Shocking business.

Tav may never refuse too play for us but it doesn’t change the fact he is a serial loser and the stick he gets is justified IMO ????.

24.) 13 Sep 2023 15:30:58
The manager might use someone at left back who has no business playing at left back because he can't however they may have a bit more dig than the Turkish sicknote or the dopey lettuce Barasic, how long have our left backs lost us games, since Bassey left?

25.) 13 Sep 2023 15:46:54
Personally thought Yilmaz all right, not great, just all right. If he goes, we'll we're light on left sided backs anyway and a mgr who couldn't pick nose. Do we have reliable left back in youth or any back up?

26.) 13 Sep 2023 15:51:33
Gazgers - yeh the lack of trophies is down to 1 player.

Get a grip.

Embarrassing post.

27.) 13 Sep 2023 17:47:00
No athole is he lack or trophies is down to the full team and setup we currently have however Tavernier is our captain and here are the stats under his leadership.

Tavernier has been part of a Rangers team that has conceded 5 trebles to Celtic! The Celtic team under Stein only won 1 treble in their 9iar years. That Rangers team also had success in Europe, reaching 2 finals. Only 2 years ago the Rangers team reached a European final, but has failed badly domestically. That cannot be ignored. Tavernier has becomes a liability. His indiscipline to roam up the park causes many problems for our defence. He doesn't play like a defender, but defends like an attacker.

But I guess that doesn't suit your narrative. ???.

28.) 13 Sep 2023 18:08:07
I wouldn't necessarily say that we overpaid for Yilmaz. I'm pretty sure that he was valued at over €5m when we signed him although I doubt we paid that much for him and I doubt he is worth that now. He is only 22 years of age and was with Besiktas since his youth representing Turkey at International Level at all age groups from under 16 and I am pretty sure that this includes at full International Level.

I also know that he is well thought of in Turkey and as I have mentioned, Besiktas would gladly have him back as did Fernabahce early in the Summer and I am told that Galatasary also wanted him.
While he is only circa 5ft 7, I don't see why this is a problem, there are a number of quality players that are not tall.

Perhaps this was just another acquisition with no thought to anything other than a quick onward sale and a fat profit rather than any thought being given as to whether we needed a left back or a left back with Yilmaz skill set.
In any event it doesn't look like he fits into Beale's game plan, (whatever that is), so it is better for everyone if he is allowed to leave. Whether we will recoup all of our original outlay is debatable and could Davies fit in at left back?

29.) 13 Sep 2023 18:18:40
Tavernier is major part of rangers issue. Totally agree.

30.) 13 Sep 2023 18:42:27
I don't think it's a case of not good enough.

Injuries haven't helped also needs a manage to play him also think he's more of a wingback for a 3 at back and him playing wide left of the middle 5.

31.) 13 Sep 2023 18:42:48
Again we but square pegs for round holes ??.

32.) 13 Sep 2023 18:43:12
Would we have liked a back 4 of Hickey or Ramsay, Porteous, McKenna or Soutar and Doig?
We know now Kevin Thomson advised the club to cough up £450k for Porteous and what will he fetch soon on the market?

We could have had the other Soutar too before Stoke did and the likes of Liam Lindsay for no money .

Wee tip Dundee Utd have a terrific CB prospect get the scout we have to pop along and watch him . we have a scout aye?

33.) 13 Sep 2023 18:58:23
The problem with Beale is that he needs supermen plus to play full back and quite often full backs as suitable on the left as Long John Silver would have been, right there is where the manager and his 2 pals know nothing about and why he/ they will never be right for us. It's obvious.

If all he had done in the window was shift the wee Turk and sleepy shirker Barasic then sign 2 replacements. Nothing else. We would be in a far better place than we are.

34.) 13 Sep 2023 19:48:43
Gary stevens (fantastic player btw) scored 13 times for Rangers. Tavernier? Hunners not counting the assists. Stevens played in a great Rangers team as well. Did you watch the run to the europa league final? Also not a fan of Devine either. Couldn’t touch Tav or Patterson before he was sold.

35.) 13 Sep 2023 19:53:33
Gazgers231, the general standard of player in the Rangers team was far better back in the Stein times and both teams were on the same financial footing . To blame one player for our lack of trophies is a nonsense.

In all the time Tav has been at Ibrox he has played under duff managers (except Gerrard) who must shoulder a lot of the blame for poor recruitment and organisation. Tav was encouraged by all these managers to get up the pitch and yet only Gerrard set up the team to cover him.

His goals were a major factor in getting us to that Euro final and even domestically when GVB decided to keep both full backs deeper the goals dried up domestically . By the way during the Stein era we went 4 years without a trophy but I don`t remember anybody blaming our captain John Greig, we were desperate for someone to come in and get him others to support him.

36.) 13 Sep 2023 20:11:01
It’s Matondo all over again, can he actually have a sustained run in the team first before we decide to sell or keep, he’s hardly kicked a ball yet, and if it’s true about him refusing games then that’s a different story.

37.) 13 Sep 2023 20:26:59
Wslgers I'll respectfully disagree with you on that. Scottish football has never been as poor as what it is now. Aberdeen finished 3rd last season, nearly 40pts behind Celtic. Even in our 9iar years, we still had decent competition off Aberdeen, Hearts, Dundee United, Hibs, jeez even Motherwell had a good team and Raith Rovers beat Bayern Munich!

Tavernier has been an excellent value for money, but his inability to defend or his indiscipline to roam forward has cost us numerous goals over the years. That is undeniable. The fact he is still with us tells us managers don't fancy him as a player, same as Goldson and Morelos, otherwise they'd have all got their big moves years ago. Anyway, it's only an opinion.

38.) 14 Sep 2023 09:07:16
“Tavernier has been an excellent value for money, but his inability to defend or his indiscipline to roam forward has cost us numerous goals over the years. ” - They goals they create and score have been a major asset of ours for years. If you need evidence of that look at how outstanding Tavernier was when he captained us to the final of a Europa League as the competitions top scorer.

Tavernier and Barisic score and create about 30 goals a season. Do they cost us 30 goals a season? Not even close. They do a lot more good for this Rangers team than bad.

If you put two more defensive full-backs in their place would they still make mistake? Yes. Would they ever be able to make up for those mistakes by running from the halfway line and slotting the ball in top corner, or scoring a winner away to Servette to get us in to the Europa League groups? No.

39.) 14 Sep 2023 11:19:59
Verdant I guess it's about standards. Some of our support have come to accept mediocrity, that others will never accept.

40.) 14 Sep 2023 22:53:30
Beale your changing your tune a player has every right to declare himself unfit who would know Thier own body better than them ?

Your defending him then saying get him out laughable

What if he is just finding his feet and we have wrong manager look at difference in matondo to last year maybe yilmaz can turn it around he's a young boy leaving his country for first time give him a chance.

41.) 15 Sep 2023 00:48:39
It is quite clear that our standards have dropped and the reasons are fairly clear for those of us that have been around for a while. Unfortunately I don't see them recovering any time soon unless we are extremely lucky or fundamentally change the way we scout players and widen the net considerably.
The benefit we had in the Souness Era was Souness and his network of contacts allied to his reputation and of course, from day one he was given solid backing. He was also fortunate that English were banned from European competitions.
Walter Smith but up a strong reputation working with Souness and gained the respect of International players and again had strong backing as did Advocaat who was a major coup at the time.
We have neither replaced that quality of player or that quality of manager with the exception of when we secured Gerrard, (which is perhaps for good fortune that good scouting and we initially supported him but failed to build when we were on top.
For me we are now in reverse mode and have been for some time.

42.) 15 Sep 2023 09:27:08
It's not just home grown talent we have overlooked, we have been preoccupied with the lower leagues in England and while we have signed a couple of decent quality players we have inevitable missed out on players that would have improved our team from all over Europe. Perhaps the change of Scouting strategy will help. Perhaps not!



06 Sep 2023 21:09:04
Borna’s agent touting him for a move back to Croatia as their window is still open.


1.) 06 Sep 2023 22:44:05
Dinamo Zagreb I’m hearing, u think this one will happen mate and maybe get a free transfer in to replace him.

2.) 07 Sep 2023 00:28:40
If we don’t then he will sign a pre contract in January and that will be yet another player who has been kept to long and allowed to run down his contract and leave for free.

3.) 07 Sep 2023 06:18:48
If anyone is willing to buy him now, bite their hand off. I'll pack his bags, and I'll make sure to pack plenty pampers for him.
Whatever money we can get for him, I'd use it to pay Beale off and get him out the door too.

4.) 07 Sep 2023 06:56:27
Andy we bought Borna for a couple of million a few years ago and he has more than repaid that. He is in his 30s now and last year of his contract so he has little resale value. It’s not like Kent and Alfredo where we could have made a good few million.

5.) 07 Sep 2023 08:21:54
Might be a good idea to move him on before he goes for nothing. Devine, Yilmaz, Yfeko, even Sterling can all cover the position until January.

6.) 07 Sep 2023 09:26:21
Not a lot we can do if the player wishes to run down his contract. Ee can't force him to move. If I'm honest he doesn't owe us anything. We have had our monies worth out him imo. He will be like Tav, once they're gone we will realise how good they were.

7.) 07 Sep 2023 09:58:09
The Sun say "European club" they weren't sure where Zagreb was they thought somebody had made up a name . But they did know he played for Rangers as it was mentioned in the Express.

8.) 07 Sep 2023 09:59:27
The difference between Barisic and Tav is that Tav has never faked an injury just so he could get off the park to avoid more punishment from the opposition. Barisic is a coward, and although Tav has his defensive frailties, he's never been a s bag on the field, even if he is being turned inside out.

9.) 07 Sep 2023 10:59:27
Old blue eyes thought it was only me that saw it.

10.) 07 Sep 2023 12:36:51
Selling him should have been done before the window shut especially if he won`t sign a new contract. What decent frees are now available? Yilmaz has spent a year showing he is not the answer, Sterling does not give you any attacking threat on that side and with no decent left winger we need it. Yfeko is not a left back. Devine is right footed too but he at least showed that he can cross with his left foot when he filled in. What about Robbie Fraser he creates a lot with his left foot for the B team. He is 21 and we gave him a years extension, so if he`s not going to make it, why did we bother . Devine would be my choice but letting Barisic go at this point makes no sense .

11.) 07 Sep 2023 18:30:43
“ What about Robbie Fraser he creates a lot with his left foot for the B team. He is 21 and we gave him a years extension, so if he`s not going to make it, why did we bother . ”

Fraser shouldn’t have been given that extra year. He's never going to make it with us. This time next year he’ll be gone.

12.) 07 Sep 2023 19:25:08
Thats why I asked the question. He seems prominent in the B team but unlike a lot of the others has never been near the first team. He`s 21 now, so I just couldn`t understand the contract extension.

13.) 09 Sep 2023 13:41:43
Borna will leave at the end of season on a free. Unless a prem team makes a bid January.

14.) 09 Sep 2023 13:43:57
If he's 21 and not in first team squad it's probably too late already ?

I know that sounds insane but it's rangers we should all know the signs by now.



29 Aug 2023 22:06:10
Told today at the training centre that the plans are Harry Souttar will be shown around Ibrox tomorrow. Might mean nothing as we done the same with Tom Davies in January and a move was never finalised. Negotiations still ongoing with Leicester on loan to buy deal.


1.) 30 Aug 2023 05:26:55
Wasn't Hazard shown round.

2.) 30 Aug 2023 05:28:12
Wasn't Hazard shown round the training ground last week?

3.) 30 Aug 2023 06:07:47
Hazard? Give it a rest.

4.) 30 Aug 2023 07:38:09
Great player but we would be a Walking Hazard if we even considered this guy? would keep our doctor in business for many a moon
Our days of past it injured players should be well gone - I HOPE.

5.) 30 Aug 2023 08:47:03
Harry suttar hasn't had of injuries. Blue Floyd if you did your cruciate ligament would you be back within a few days or are you so hard it couldn't happen to you.

6.) 30 Aug 2023 09:01:12
He has had 2 injuries in his career.

7.) 30 Aug 2023 09:03:10
That should have been loads of injuries.

8.) 30 Aug 2023 09:33:43
He was talking about hazzard.

9.) 30 Aug 2023 09:52:42
He was on about hazard not souttar.

Borna why, it’s a rumour site.

11.) 30 Aug 2023 11:42:42
I was shown around Ibrox but wasn’t signed?.

12.) 30 Aug 2023 12:17:34
Livi - maybe you need to read the text - my play on Hazard was giving it a clue bud - am more than happy to see Souttar come in if at all possible?.

13.) 30 Aug 2023 12:54:36
My apologies mate i read it company wrong sorry. Aye is hazard not retiring anyway.

14.) 30 Aug 2023 13:11:51
Cheers Livi - hope he retires before coming anywhere near Ibrox - we need younger hungry dynamic players with sell on value rather than pension plan seekers?.

15.) 30 Aug 2023 13:11:54
Nearest Hazard got to Ibrox was the Tartan chippy.

16.) 30 Aug 2023 13:17:43
Would appear so livi but his agent has confirmed today they spoke to clubs in sixcountries including a club in Scotland.

17.) 30 Aug 2023 15:22:29
deffo intrest from a scottish team John n he straight knocked back Beckham.

18.) 30 Aug 2023 15:28:23
Loan to buy ??? behave yourself we are not buying souttar they just paid crazy money for him and I would think least they would look for would be around 10 million if they are feeling charitable ? if he is going to us it's simply to keep him playing football for a year.

19.) 30 Aug 2023 17:51:03
It was interest from Six Counties not countries and County Down have the option in front of County Fermanagh - that's Hazards limit these days getbreal guys ??.



26 Aug 2023 09:52:48
Was told at the training ground yesterday that Borna Barisic agent has turned down a new deal for him.


1.) 26 Aug 2023 11:29:46
Think this is another one who was told he would be sold after 55.
Remember him last man of the pitch v Celtic, that year after we beat them, giving big waves.

2.) 26 Aug 2023 11:34:48
Shouldn’t be offered one in the first place.

3.) 26 Aug 2023 11:36:52
Yep, that is doing the rounds.

4.) 26 Aug 2023 11:58:24
If that's the case regarding borna turning down a new deal, we have to now look for/ sign his longterm replacement, as i honestly don't think beale rates or is too keen on yilmaz ?.

5.) 26 Aug 2023 12:00:01
As much as he's critised he will take some replacing. Still a massive threat for us going forward.

6.) 26 Aug 2023 12:00:06
Sign and sell next summer would be ideal.

7.) 26 Aug 2023 12:11:27
Love Borna gets too much stick on here.

8.) 26 Aug 2023 12:56:38
He just set up another goal he’s better than folk make out.

9.) 26 Aug 2023 13:11:01
For 1.8m if borna leaves in a free he will have been a fantastic piece of business and more than made a great contribution to our club. He can leave with his head held high in a free next season k owing he owes us nothing. C re cling player, bit dodgy defensively and struggles when the fans are in his case, so I don’t understand why they do it, but he’s great when played to his strength and can’t be blamed for his faults as it’s gaffers job to cover them.

10.) 26 Aug 2023 13:41:22
Move him on and go for doig.

11.) 26 Aug 2023 14:32:46
Livi bear why would doig come to Scotland when he’s playing in Italy?

12.) 26 Aug 2023 14:34:52

Credit where it’s due.

13.) 26 Aug 2023 14:41:15
Raskin how do you know he wouldn't. he'd be a starter now, he'd play in europe and win things.

14.) 26 Aug 2023 15:37:11
I don't get your thinking on Beale and Yilmaz sws, played in the games at the end of the season then pre season then injured.

15.) 26 Aug 2023 16:09:25
We’ve won 2 trophies in 13 year mate so let’s actually win stuff regularly before saying that.

16.) 26 Aug 2023 18:58:33
Been a great servant to the club a don't think we'll sell him imo would be hard to replace. Keep him for last year and gives the scouts a year to seek a replacement.

17.) 26 Aug 2023 21:16:18
I’d love doig to be that replacement.
Curveball here.
Would they do a swap for kamar? Would kamara take it?
Loan ridvan out for a year n see where he’s at next season when borna leaves on a free.
Ridvan has bags of potential there’s definitely a player in there .
Doug I really like plus Scottish. And borna deserves to see out his contract more than others who have done it recently. Always really like borna and said that game at time we played Osijek we should go for him he was outstanding.
Was surprised we went for him and shocked at how cheap he was.
Great servant to the club.

18.) 26 Aug 2023 18:59:10
Very much doubt borna would knock back a new contract.

19.) 26 Aug 2023 22:09:39
Should go an compete with shalke for murkin from voldenam, they have bid 450k only 24, english, athletic, gets up and down the wing and got a good cross, only a year left on his contract.

20.) 26 Aug 2023 22:22:04
The first post was by his agent, not by the player so I would take it with a pinch of salt, we are short of options at full back so the agent will think that he is in a strong position to get a better deal for BB.

21.) 26 Aug 2023 23:03:31
Unless it’s on reduced terms he might.

22.) 27 Aug 2023 00:05:28
Dogs abuse on here but been outstanding since the season started.

23.) 27 Aug 2023 01:13:52
Yes seems like Beale went back on a deal with barasic and people are wondering why some players are not happy.

People seem to want to put false info on barasic out like they are doing or done with kamara hagi sakala. we all know barasic time is probably up but we seem to have ignored his replacement yilmaz who we paid a hefty fee for and I know he's injured right now but wasn't always Beale just didn't fancy him.

Think a lot will depend if we beat psv we have a really good chance and no reason why we can't do it again over there.

Knowing our luck it will go to extra time and pens?.

24.) 27 Aug 2023 01:33:21
Borna (like Tav) gets a lot of stick for not being the best defender (though he did that well today) . But you have to look at his stats, and according to sky Comms today he had set up more chances than anyone else in the league so far (early days I know) . We will not get top class defenders that can put up numbers like Borna and Tav can, they'd be worth 8 digits easily. He's been a great servant in a time of transition. I'd be happy for him to see put the season and ride off in to the sunset.

25.) 27 Aug 2023 07:53:52
Go for once again what has Beale gone back on barisic re

I ask you about your made up bland statements all the time never get a reply.

26.) 27 Aug 2023 08:37:12
Any chance to slate MB and gofor jumps on it. Kamara has acted like an ar** this season and according to gofor its MB fault. Its so predictable.

27.) 27 Aug 2023 08:42:10
Gofor you are getting in to a very bad habit of taking nonsense daily just now, i can never understand some of your posts mate.

28.) 27 Aug 2023 10:09:03
Go for you have no idea what goes on behind closed doors …. And the reason for that is the doors are closed . I must say bona is having a great start to season . Apart from the first game where a lot on here wanted to rip it up and start again ?.

29.) 27 Aug 2023 10:24:01
He's doing well just now, trying to interest buyers .



24 Aug 2023 13:16:17
Was told today at the Training Centre that young Yfeko’s agent has turned down a new deal for him.


1.) 24 Aug 2023 13:54:48
No harm to the big guy but looks cumbersome and bombscare material, he's as well leaving for game time to develop himself.

2.) 24 Aug 2023 14:06:41
Is he going back to Chelsea?

3.) 24 Aug 2023 14:27:58
Was he ever at Chelsea?

4.) 24 Aug 2023 14:29:14
If I'm honest, I don't really think this guy is going to make it. He's already 20, and I really don't think he's anywhere near good enough to be challenging for a spot in the team. I realise we need a squad, but if he's not interested then I don't think it should be any skin of our noses.

5.) 24 Aug 2023 14:46:41
Correction Leicester city, I thought he had come through Chelsea's academy.

6.) 24 Aug 2023 14:56:27
He came fae Leicester lads
I think he’ll accept the deal
Agents prob just tryna get him better money. A full season to go yet. John said he’s only on £600 pw so not on a great deal for rangers squad player now which he is.
Best thing the boy can do is sign the deal, when it’s fair, and go on a years loan. U less he’s going to get game time at left back back up if Yimaz is to move.
Maybe not bulked up enough for centre back yet.

7.) 24 Aug 2023 15:11:09
Ffs last couple of weeks people have been saying he is good young player and now reports he knocked back a deal it’s getting said he won’t make it anyway ?.

8.) 24 Aug 2023 15:38:57
He needs game time. Would be another I'd loan out.

9.) 24 Aug 2023 15:46:08
Storm, u don’t accept first offer. The lad has 9 months left on his deal and we r only paying him 600 a week.

If to be around first team squad imo he should get similar to what we r paying Lowry king and Devine.

10.) 24 Aug 2023 16:13:31
John how much roughly are these boys on of u have an idea?
I think the agents just negotiating and that’s fair enough,
Hopefully we can tie him down as for me looks like he could become a really good player. Perhaps as a defensive minded left back until he bills up and moved into centre back where I think he’ll be at his best skill wise.
If he signs a 3 year deal and we loan him out for a year, maybe 6 month at a time Incase if injuries.
This would be a great deal for the club.

11.) 24 Aug 2023 16:14:50
I reckon he will make it, but he needs time to get regular games under his belt. He won't get that this season if he stays. I reckon we will get him to sign a deal and head out on a season long loan.

12.) 24 Aug 2023 16:20:03
King et al on between 4 and 5 k a week.

13.) 24 Aug 2023 16:27:23
Give him a improved deal and loan him out to Patrick to another spfl team.

14.) 24 Aug 2023 16:34:38
I actually think he has a future in the game. Whether that is with us, time will tell but he is better than king imo.

15.) 24 Aug 2023 16:36:41
Yfeko will never be a player, clear bombscare material.

16.) 24 Aug 2023 17:23:07
Yfeko stopped a last minute goal and was named MOM from the presenters against Greenock. Too many people like to pass judgement and throw negative comments out at players who are doing well. The wee guy wants stability and if he's on £600pw and has captained the B team lately and playing First team games and squads, then you would be looking for a bit more and improved T&Cs.

17.) 24 Aug 2023 17:28:50
I like the look of Yfeko, he’s a unit for his age. He’s got something about him. He’s not quite there yet understandably as he’s still learning his trade. I’d like to see him loaned out, unless he is going to play. Still early days but got high hopes for the kid.

18.) 24 Aug 2023 17:29:22
Correct John tho not sure if am allowed to agree with you anymore.

19.) 24 Aug 2023 18:01:16
Yfeko will be a better lb than barasic.

20.) 24 Aug 2023 18:01:48
Defo not storm, but who cares what others think.

21.) 24 Aug 2023 18:06:13
Has shown a bit of potential, don`t see him as a left back though. Doesn`t look comfortable moving up he wing. He`s still young for a centre half, plenty of time to develop further.

22.) 24 Aug 2023 18:22:21
That’s ridiculous wage for king imo.
No way he merits that.

23.) 24 Aug 2023 18:52:11
He’s looked great early doors this season. Def worth the money John is suggesting.

24.) 24 Aug 2023 19:49:05
Think king and lowery are better than him imo 2k a week would probably be fair with a decent appearance bonus.

25.) 24 Aug 2023 22:50:40
Difference with Scottish lads with domestic trained rule they are more valued and they know it.

26.) 24 Aug 2023 22:56:21
Are you all forgetting his cryptic messages about the truth will come out ? I am sure I seen something a while back saying he could play.

We will find out in time


27.) 25 Aug 2023 09:30:30
Stevie, what makes u think ridiculous wage, I know people of 18 in England getting 12k a week, and never played in CL.

How much would u pay him.

28.) 25 Aug 2023 11:44:49
Just beachside we’re a Scottish club job, some 1st team starters are on 10k or less so why is these youngsters king esp getting that wage. He’s done nothing to merit it. I’d have thought £2k mate. The fact epl are paying those wages just proves how mental it’s all went down there.

Told Clement shares the same opinion as Waller on Tav and Jack that they are carrying too much muscle mass on top half of body. He also believes Lundstram is one of the fittest players he’s worked ever worked with.


1.) 13 Nov 2023 21:57:34
Know a few coaches at the club and they have said that PC is far from happy with the conditioning of a lot of the players and has moved a number of them on to specialist training plans.

Tried to get specific names, but they wouldn't say.

2.) 13 nov 2023 22:12:27
these things occur when players are allowed to go off on they're own fitness regimes and gym work, often with personal trainers who are not football orientated and too concentrated on body look.

3.) 13 Nov 2023 22:14:11
A lot of people blamed Bale’s injuries at Reao Madrid due to the amount of muscle he put on when he went there.

4.) 13 Nov 2023 22:35:48
Great to have a manager that can identify these issues and try and sort them out.

5.) 13 Nov 2023 22:37:18
Never good when player become top heavy think that's what did Kent in.

6.) 13 Nov 2023 23:12:01
Imagine what Clement would be thinking if he seen El Buffalo's physique ?.

7.) 13 nov 2023 23:36:58
in bales case i would imagine he had a home gym, personal trainer and the full monty david, , the very best of body imaging people around him if he wanted, so yeah you could be correct mate.

8.) 13 Nov 2023 23:48:50
Bale was always injury prone, he was probably too fast for his own good as a youngster and constantly done his harmstring.
Hence always having that sports tape on.

Nothing to do with Madrid just his body.

9.) 14 Nov 2023 06:46:21
Gofor - Dunno about muscle mass re Kent? - think it was more to do with that little bit of grey matter located between the ears which affected RK and more his attitude as can be seen as what's happening currently at Fenerbache!

10.) 14 Nov 2023 08:45:00
Gofor what did Kent in was he is as thick as two short planks. The guy had no football brain. He never knew when to release the ball, no awareness of his teammates, and never knew how to keep it simple. That's why sakala, sima and anyone else who played there would always have better numbers than Kent.

11.) 14 Nov 2023 09:49:23
Purely in the sake of accuracy. Kents stats for assists to the assist were second to none in Scotland by a country mile (thumbs up) :)

12.) 14 Nov 2023 10:21:42
Livi bear i take your point about kent. But sakala having brains? Lol.

13.) 14 Nov 2023 10:33:15
Look at the pictures of him before and after he went to real. Not saying that’s all it was down to but have definitely seen people saying the increase in muscle mass was part of the problem.

14.) 14 Nov 2023 12:52:51
I wonder if Clement would actually have got Alfie fit as opposed to talking about it and not doing anything about it like our last two managers, or would he have just said this guys attitude stinks and he`s not worth the effort.

15.) 15 Nov 2023 11:23:05
Dado sakala kept it simple and direct.



21 Oct 2023 19:23:17
Today was the first time all season that the players looked like they had a tactical purpose out there. Too often under Beale it was just players on the pitch with no identity, hoping something happened. Today I could see a game plan for each player and the team.


1.) 21 Oct 2023 22:38:41
100%agree was like they have been told take chances try the difficult passes and don't be affraid to lose the ball in the attempt more shots more direct play higher tempo looking forward to next game to see if we can keep that going.



08 Jan 2023 21:52:01
With Tillman being signed almost a stick on come end of the season, does anyone know what kind of clause is included from Bayern point of view? I believe they would have a buy back of some sort?


1.) 09 Jan 2023 14:53:12
The rumour and papers have said if they match an offer we received they have first refusal to sign him.

I believe this to be accurate info,



28 Oct 2022 14:32:18
Roofe injured again. Likely we won’t see him until after the World Cup.




23 Oct 2022 07:11:51
I’m in no way saying the football we are playing is acceptable, however, here’s something to think about.
Gio has only lost 3 league games in 12 months and never lost a domestic cup match.
Under Gerrard we lost 6 league games and both cups in his first 12 months.
Why was Gerrard given 3 seasons to get it right but Gio only 12 months?


1.) 23 Oct 2022 07:29:38
Gio has taken the side backwards no doubt about it. SG was given time as the side he took over was a joke he needed few years to build a side. Honestly can't believe there's a minority backing gio and cannot see how much damage he's doing.

2.) 23 Oct 2022 07:44:49
I think the reason for that is if you look at the difference in quality of our side, that team still contained halliday, dorrans, Flanagan, ejaria, coulibaly, lafferty and middleton gerrard was still building a side at the time, gio has inherited a title winning side and has spent about 13 million this season and wee have regressed as a team.

3.) 23 Oct 2022 07:50:41
SG inherited a worse squad that’s why. I don’t blame GIO entirely as the players and board are to blame also but it’s the manager that is always the fall guy.

4.) 23 Oct 2022 08:05:34
Celtic 3 - Rangers 0
Rangers 1 - Celtic 2
Celtic 4 - Rangers 0
Ajax 4 - Rangers 0
Rangers 0 - Napoli 3
Liverpool 2 - Rangers 0
Rangers 1 - Liverpool 7
Gio threw away a 6 point lead in the league to a Celtic team we had just destroyed the previous season, who had an untried manager, while bedding in a plethora of new players. Whereas, Gerrard had taken over a team in total disarray, and had to build it up from the very bare bones of the mess that he had been left. There is no comparison!
Is that reason enough for you?
Gio is a dud! Get him out now while we still have a chance to do something.
Is there anyone on here who still think he's the right man for the job?

5.) 23 Oct 2022 08:30:16
Fair point bornabear but contrast their starting point. We were a total mess when SG took over. Unfortunately he made a load of dross signings and left us with a pretty poor squad too, full of ageing or players on contracts going down which needs complete overhaul. Needs time but just not sure Gios the man anymore as we're getting worse rather than better.

6.) 23 Oct 2022 09:27:12
Ray, why don’t you pick any manager in the world and make a list of 10 defeats ~ you can prove that they are all hopeless using that formula.

7.) 23 Oct 2022 10:46:54
You're letting your emotions get the better of you there, DK19! We're not talking about other managers, are we? Are you defending him?

8.) 23 Oct 2022 11:21:28
With you DK … when gio took over we were in a mess … losing games downward slide … losing to the mighty malmo . gio came in and within weeks everyone was singing his praises . how he was getting much more out of Alfie etc .
We forget so easily.
The football under Gerrad was tippy tappy side to side back to the keeper
Can we deny that.

9.) 23 Oct 2022 11:40:29
Sorry Molsgoals, but what you've just posted there is rubbish. When Gio took over we were top of the league! How were we on a downward slide? Are you sure you know what you're talking about? Are you getting mixed up here? Very strange post.
If you want other posters to respect your views on defending Gio, you must, at the very least, be factual with all your points. You can't just make things up.
