Is it true that Rangers are talking to Daniel Armstrong, Pat McNair, and some midfielder from L Sofia? Or is it just fake news as Trump would say?


1.) 10 May 2024 17:07:56
Cordoba a defo. We have met him. He annd his angent were ant ibrox on Sunday. Others may be true.

2.) 10 May 2024 19:09:10
Cordoba isn't a mid tho?
Is this an error or are we looking at mid from there too.
If so hoping it's Andrean Kraev. He's out of contract in summer and would be a good option as a number 6.

3.) 10 may 2024 19:21:26
i would love to see McNair arrive, we need his type.

4.) 10 May 2024 19:23:43
McNair, another journeyman like Lawrence, Cantwell and Kent. hopefully we aren’t talking to him.

5.) 10 May 2024 19:47:54
Hopefully Armstrong. Hopefully not and doubtfully McNair. Confirmed cordoba, sofia defender.

6.) 10 May 2024 20:43:01
Agree with you storm, McNair doesn't improve us.

7.) 10 May 2024 21:29:16
Cantwell hardly a journeyman, ??‍♂️ had loan spell in Germany to get game time after he 1st broke into the Norwich team and then had a short loan spell at Bournemouth coming back from a knee injury Norwich and Rangers.

8.) 10 May 2024 21:35:28
Is a journeyman a bad player?

9.) 11 May 2024 00:55:25
Boro fans seem to like McNair, usually best way to judge on a transfer, Stoke fans were gutted at losing Stirling at beginning of season.

10.) 11 may 2024 06:52:37
mm, journeyman, like mbappe maybe, kane, who else now . who else has played for 3 clubs including man utd

oh yes thousands have played for 3 clubs,

all our team are " journeymen " then yeah?

utter tripe

madd mcoist to that list, oh and gazza, all journeymen,

11.) 11 May 2024 07:10:55
Armstrong is the best of Killie pickings along with Mayo this season- am totally all for buying the very best of Scottish as was our norm - but is this guy the level we need to truly progress? - not too sure about that?.

12.) 11 May 2024 07:37:28
Never saw carrick say mid. We all know who it is. The lad was at ibrox.

Blue Floyd. Watson is the standout player at Kilmarnock.

13.) 11 May 2024 07:45:49
Blue Floyd I kinda agree but!

He fills the Scottish quota and is a better player than Wright.

Do think he will just be the bench player and for me every player you buy should be because you see him starting before the guy in the 11 currently I’m old fashioned though and that’s not way clubs approach things now and can't due to domestic player rule.

Who knows though could surprise us.

14.) 11 May 2024 10:35:48
Yes agree - Watson up there too John?.

15.) 11 May 2024 12:01:47
Gofor can you clarify Armstrong meets criteria for Europe in terms of length of time in an academy.



08 May 2024 10:00:16
This rumour concerning Pat McNair doesn’t seem to be going away. In the Belfast Telegraph newspaper that Rangers are interested along with an Italian side and a few others. No talks have taken place it says.


1.) 08 May 2024 11:27:12
McNair is not better quality at all

From Bassey and Sterling I think they will be looking at talented academy players ready for first team up here.

2.) 08 may 2024 11:39:13
ive wanted mcnair fir a while, great young player and a true bluenose i'm told, he could prosper here and bring the pride back to our dressing room.

3.) 08 May 2024 12:18:48
He’s 29 mate.

4.) 08 May 2024 12:30:56
I posted weeks ago that we had already opened discussions with McNair and McBurnie and if you want experience and a Rangers heart or two in the dressing room, this pair fit the bill well. They can't all be kids with transfer potential, you know.

5.) 08 may 2024 12:51:27
well he was a great young player when i wanted him.

6.) 08 may 2024 12:53:00
absolutely hubby, too many caught up in the “ buy to sell” business

all good and well but we need winners too, a rangers soul in the dressing room and fighters on the pitch, not all kids with potential.

7.) 08 May 2024 13:19:31
TT/ Hubby The correct blend of both is required- experience with club at heart and also youth to progress - don't think many on here would want 11 buy to sell players - but our buying profile over last how many seasons has been dire so hopefully we will see the correct balanced change.

8.) 08 May 2024 14:23:46
TT is about 110?, everyone is young.

9.) 08 may 2024 14:25:36
every club needs a balance to succeed, but there are quite a few on here who instantky jump at the age thing when a player is mentioned, at rangers there's a double edged sword, where we must buy, sell to prosper but win trophies at the same time, its been too long since we were winning regularly, so getting the correct talent and winning mentality is now crucial, then we can diverse and look to make money, but winning is the priority first and firemost.

10.) 08 May 2024 14:40:28
Never an issue bringing in some older heads but we have a few too many already and we could do with younger/ hungry players. If a few of the older guys leave then no issue bringing in a Mcnair as a squad option.

11.) 08 May 2024 14:40:59
Agree TT need stability first, then kick on with future prospects.

12.) 08 May 2024 14:57:08
McNair should be nowhere ibrox just another journey man and couldn’t care less who he supported. Aw that he supported rangers is just utter nonsense. I just want good players.

13.) 08 May 2024 15:33:18
A journey man that has only played for Man utd, Sunderland and Middlesbrough.

14.) 08 may 2024 15:36:11
erm, you believe its “ utter nonsense”, personally i like boys with a rangers background.

nobody ever said it's a must, but we have had many genuine legends brought up as rangers people.

it matters a lot to me and millions more.

15.) 08 May 2024 16:00:43
As well as young up and coming quality players we will need a nucleus of proven players with a solid track record and a winning mentality. Whether McNair fits that definition I don't know but we need to get away from the serial losers that have been at Rangers for too long now.

We need players with the mentality of Butcher, Gough, Roberts, Hurlock etc., that would die for the jersey and not scared to get stuck in for the jersey. If we can get someone with the right qualities and they happen to be Rangers minded, then I see that as an added benefit.

16.) 08 May 2024 16:10:36
McNair is a level below what we currently have and what's already not good enough.

17.) 08 May 2024 16:24:03
Agree 100% Tom we need a few Rangers men in our team.

18.) 08 May 2024 16:26:25
Journey man? He’s only had 3 clubs and correct me if am wrong, has he not just left Middlesbrough after 4 years?

19.) 08 May 2024 17:41:16
TT - were those players that Gio then Beale brought in not meant be winners too? if not why did why did we buy them - crap research comes to mind? Basically most of the buys have been extremely poor with no real desire or hunger about them- that is where the problem is and then when added to a nucleus of serial losers over last 5/ 6 seasons we have our Rangers team - most cared for cash rather than trophies and just like Man Utd at present it is not always the big name or costly players who add to your team - they have spent 10s of millions and still look disjointed and weak just like us- Fergie knew that by having a Roy Keane or Stam or Scholes or McGrath or Bruce - (guys who hated to lose full stop even in friendlies) - Who do we have that hates to lose (apart from us fans) ? Totally agree with players you mention BB- we need some seriously bad losers in our squad/ team ASAP.

20.) 08 may 2024 19:23:09
sorry floyd, i didn't get why that points aimed at me, i don't know if you agree with me or not.

we need people to fight for our club, being rangers family is a massive help in that, nobody says it's a prerequisite, but it's a great bonus.

21.) 09 May 2024 12:55:18
I believe if we sign Mcnair he will be Lundstram replacement in the middle of the park, he has some dig in there and we missed that badly missed for some time, also uses the ball very well, been interested in him his full career, good player massive bluenose.



22 Jan 2024 11:30:44
Who’s this winger from Argentina that is being mentioned as a possibly to Rangers? Is there truth in it?


1.) 22 Jan 2024 12:21:27
langoni from boca juniors mate, would be a really good signing for us but i think other teams are in for him like fulham and sevilla so would be really tough to get him.

2.) 22 Jan 2024 12:39:10
Rangers " fan" websites talking about him and then saying his team want £10 million for him, if that's the case he won`t be coming to Rangers. These click bait sites love to do that, link us to players that we won`t buy because we simply can`t afford it.

3.) 22 Jan 2024 13:15:30
Langoni would be a sensational signing but he's being touted at over 10 mill, he's rapid, direct n called the assist King. Many looking at him, sevilla, man utd, amongst others,

4.) 22 Jan 2024 14:07:13
Assist king? He has 2 career assists ? not suggesting he wouldn't be a good signing but just seems a bit wild for him to be called assist king with only 2 assists.

5.) 22 Jan 2024 14:21:27
Lol can't well iv got more assists than that i could be the assist Duke

6.) 22 Jan 2024 14:33:36
It's a magic number.

7.) 22 Jan 2024 14:35:30
The young serbian winger dukanovic will most definitely do for me ?.

8.) 22 Jan 2024 16:10:22
3 pints of lager and a packet of crisps.



14 Jan 2024 09:58:32
Who’s this guy Cameron Pring that Rangers are watching from Bristol city? He’s a bolt out of the blue .


1.) 14 Jan 2024 10:49:40
Bisgroves supports Bristol Rovers. So I was told by one of his mates.

2.) 14 Jan 2024 11:11:26
Left back.



10 Jan 2024 16:04:28
Reading on Sky Sports, Verona will be making an offer for Yilmaz soon, Lammers has signed for the Dutch club until the end of season, Doig still of interest but 3 other clubs also interested, from Italy, France and England, also said that Rangers would not be signing the Belgium striker Bats as other clubs from again France and England are interested.


1.) 10 Jan 2024 18:17:45
Think we’ve been quoted £60k a week loan deal til summer.
The wages are too high.
Least we asked the question.
Shows intent.

2.) 10 Jan 2024 19:55:08
He is out of contract in the summer so would of been a pre contract or getting him in January.

3.) 10 Jan 2024 20:06:50
Stevie G2 he's on 60 k a week. Fener must be saying he can sign for you but you pay all his wages. Interesting to see what happens the nearer the window end it gets.

4.) 10 Jan 2024 22:48:37
To be fair they won’t be short on teams willing to pay that.

5.) 10 Jan 2024 23:42:13
Rfc if a player has 6 months left on his contract he can still br loaned. Its frees up space for his parent club to replace him and save on his wages.

6.) 11 Jan 2024 11:14:39
If Galatasaray are seriously interested in Yilmaz, my bet he will go there instead of Verona, Good move for the young lad, stronger squad than ours, with far better players, and the best team in turkish football, be a 1st team pick, seeing they are well aware of his talents and quality, another Solid player thrown away for no reason, lad will only get better and better, no doubt the team that buy Yilmaz will make a tidy profit on him once he gets a decent run in the team and with Galatasaray he will get Champions league football.

To think we could have had a young talented back 4 for next season of Patterson, Sterling, Bassey, Yilmaz.

What would be our starting eleven for the Cup Final?


1.) 18 May 2024 16:06:29



2.) 18 May 2024 16:14:47
Tav sterling Davies yilmaz
Diomande raskin cantwell
McAusland dessers sima.
If balogun or souttar are fit I'd swap 1 of them for sterling and drop tav.

3.) 18 May 2024 16:19:57

4.) 18 May 2024 16:37:03
I would go with that team John. The more I see Tav these days the more I worry. Every attack down that flank could lead to a goal. His marking is almost as bad as his tackling.

5.) 18 May 2024 16:46:47
Once tavs goals dries up u see just how much they mask over how poor he really is. he's got to be moved on in the summer so does goldson.

6.) 18 May 2024 17:18:13
My rangers starting 11 for the cup final next week would be
Sima/ mccausland
I've dropped dio to the bench as the old firm games he's played in he's looked lightweight and lost ?We need steel in this midfield and imo both sterling and raskin will supply that ?.

7.) 18 May 2024 17:20:12
No to silva John.

8.) 18 May 2024 17:28:09
Sterling sterling sterling
Sterling Diomande Sterling Sterling
Sterling Dessers Sterling.

9.) 18 May 2024 17:33:02
John why would you play silva over dessers who's st least scored against them.

10.) 18 May 2024 17:37:43
Tav won’t be dropped at right back.
Would put Sterling there in a heartbeat but not going to happen.

11.) 18 May 2024 18:07:34
Sterling needs to be played at RB, that's his position and should be first choice RB for next season.
Surely the lad must be getting a bit pissed off playing every position but his actual one.

12.) 18 May 2024 18:19:23
John that’s the team I’d play like him or not Silva is the best we have in that position and I’d rather see sima through the middle than have Dessers, Bar72 yours is a close 2nd?.

13.) 18 May 2024 18:54:04
Bang on Paul.

14.) 18 May 2024 19:57:35
One Walter, reason silva had Johnston totally rattled,

Then sima has pace through the middle, and has also scored against them, it won’t be pc team but the question is what team would we play

He will go with Sterling against Taylor which I think is wrong move

Dessers is just unlucky because imo we need pace.

15.) 18 May 2024 20:41:39
SWS - talking about steel a fit RyanJack would be in my starting 11.
Sterling and Raskin are certain starters but LB still remains a problem position for us, and has been all season.



06 May 2024 11:07:58
I just read that Pat McNair is leaving Middlesbrough and there’s a possibility of him coming to Rangers on a free . I’m bias of course being from NI, but I think he’s a great player, only problem he is easily injured.
Ballyclare man and whole family bluenoses, not that it matters?


1.) 06 may 2024 13:07:50
a real no brainer mate, absolutely.

2.) 06 May 2024 13:49:56
Absolutely not, an absolute jobber should be targetting better being a fan means nothing.

3.) 06 May 2024 16:43:40
ten, our team is full of jobbers and has been for a few seasons, we all want to see better but I'm not sure that will happen. McNair's problem for me is his injuries and we have seen enough injury prone players signed over the years.
We need players with skill and fight and I do believe that being one of us would make a difference. There aren't enough Rangers minded in our team these days.



29 Mar 2024 10:25:29
I read that NI captain Paddy McNair could be leaving Middlesbrough at the end of the season. Would be a great asset to Rangers methinks? Could we afford him? It seems he wants European football, and Brenda is a big fan, though the boy is from Ballyclare and is a Rangers fan.


1.) 29 Mar 2024 11:14:06
Carrick he's out of contract in the summer mate, Rangers could afford his wages and would be a good signing.

2.) 29 Mar 2024 11:28:19
One things for sure, Rodgers has no chance of signing him.

3.) 29 Mar 2024 12:29:17
He is good in opposition box too - so it would be a resounding yes please!

4.) 29 Mar 2024 15:59:05
Take paddy all day long.



23 Mar 2024 11:21:26
I have to admit, I was very surprised that Scotland got beat 4-0 by Netherlands, Scotland are a decent team now.


1.) 23 Mar 2024 12:05:02
Seems every time Scotland play a decent team they fold ano some were just freidly games recently were not as good as we think.

2.) 23 Mar 2024 12:08:42
Wasn't surprised tbh, was more surprised we had chances to score, pity we didn't have a centre forward lol!
Joking aside, we have been punching above our weight, I think the Euros and the Europa League thing at a higher level will find us out.

3.) 23 Mar 2024 12:16:03
More than competed for 60 minutes but the drop off when changes were made is a worry. I was very impressed in first half and wee Billy was best player on the park, he’d take he ball in a phone box keep it and complete a pass.

4.) 23 Mar 2024 13:02:58
East Belfast, Spain, norway, Denmark, Ukraine. Surely they are all decent teams, so that's not realy true.
Carrick posted similar last night that Scotland out played them for most of the game. As scotty said the changes swung it for them, we don't have same depth. Still 4-0 absolutely flattered them, we missed 3 sitters, needs to be better at that level.

5.) 23 Mar 2024 13:03:01
Thought scotland played brilliant. We're by far the better team in the first half. Hit the bar twice and countless other good goal scoring chances. I Thought the 4 nil scoreline flattered the dutch. what i liked most from last night was the calmness and intregit play and passing. We never Looked scared to recieve the ball. let's not kid ourselF tho we were playing the dutch. if we play like that against the swiss and hungary then you just never know.

6.) 23 Mar 2024 14:43:35
We have improved technically in our back and mid leaps and bounds however its our final third which is not quite kept up, that's where the team ahead of us excel. We are missing maybe 2 players to finish the jigsaw to make us a top team. If only we had Dagleish and Cooper.

7.) 23 Mar 2024 14:53:41
Those games are meant for results like that to show the standard we must achieve before the Finals and avoid this happening in Germany in front of the world.

8.) 23 Mar 2024 15:11:34
Hopefully we won't sign Shankland. Couldn't score in the proverbial! We should have scored at least 3 last night. Get Gilmour back!

9.) 23 Mar 2024 15:35:33
27 goals would suggest otherwise doiger. He wasn't great last night, considering it's his first start against that kind of opposition thought he done ok, very unlucky to hit the bar, not much service to work with tbf. Hope your good doiger ?.

10.) 23 Mar 2024 20:37:47
Doiger we can’t afford Gilmour.

11.) 23 Mar 2024 22:49:19
Shankland was unlucky. I could seriously see Gilmour playing for a top European team, he's that good.

12.) 24 Mar 2024 07:46:11
I totally agree guys, billy gilmour is a superb midfielder and of the steven davis mould for me ? He controls the tempo of the game, very rarely wastes a pass and his control is that good, you couldn't get the ball off him in a phone box ?.



06 Mar 2024 11:05:39
A question for you guys who are good at Rangers historical facts, who was the younger player ever to play for Rangers first team? And who was the oldest ?


1.) 06 Mar 2024 11:36:00
Without googling I'm going for Derek Johnstone as the youngest and the oldest Davie Weir.

2.) 06 Mar 2024 11:37:30
Think the youngest was John Fleck.

3.) 06 Mar 2024 11:39:26
Oldest has to be Mcgregor or Davie Dinosaur?
Youngest? Guessing at Derek Johnstone?

4.) 06 Mar 2024 12:11:50
I know Derek Ferguson was only 16, don't know about the oldest though.

5.) 06 Mar 2024 12:42:59
DJ and Greegsy would be my guess.

6.) 06 Mar 2024 13:08:10
How old was Macleod When we started playing him? And DW was at least 43.

7.) 06 Mar 2024 13:13:51
Fleck and weir tho may have been older back in the day.

8.) 06 Mar 2024 13:24:42
I'm sure Derek Johnston was only 16 when he made his debut.

9.) 06 Mar 2024 13:48:23
Fleck and weir. Can remember fleck coming off the bench and confirming he was our youngest ever player. i think.

10.) 06 Mar 2024 13:59:52
Did Billy Gilmore not get a sub appearance when he was quite young as we were trying to keep him and showing he'd get his chance if he stayed?

11.) 06 Mar 2024 14:07:02
Greegsy would be the oldest and I think Derek Johnstone the youngest to score in an old firm but not sure if that record still stands.

12.) 06 Mar 2024 14:09:57
Doesn't matter what age you are if your good enough your old enough in my book when I was 13 I was playing regular 11 a side with over 35s at Thier training took a few knocks but loved every minute of it especially when I produced a rare bit of magic a very rare occurrence lol which made the grown men reconsider letting me play in their end of training matches.

13.) 06 Mar 2024 14:13:56
derek ferguson is the youngest.

14.) 06 Mar 2024 15:22:13
Derek Ferguson and Allan McGregor it is.

15.) 06 Mar 2024 15:24:13
That was a good thread, I enjoyed that information.

16.) 06 Mar 2024 15:34:43
Fairly recent players. Derek Ferguson was youngest, Allan McGregor oldest.

17.) 06 Mar 2024 15:55:16
Thought a heard Derek Ferguson saying he actually played for Rangers when he was 15 in a testimonial or pre season game with the first team which is some doing,16 in league tho, DJ youngest goal scorer I would think.

18.) 06 Mar 2024 17:33:28
Correct re Ferguson and McGregor folks.

19.) 06 Mar 2024 18:45:41
Gilmour never played for the first team.

20.) 06 Mar 2024 19:41:40
Was weir not 42 when he retired? Can’t be long separating him and mcgregor.

I see on Sky Sports that Notts Forest are trying to sign Johnstone of Crystal Palace for goalkeeping position, so hopefully they’ve been told by Rangers that Butland is not for sale.

My only worry is that he has never played first team football. Did AC Milan offer him a new contract? And who were the other clubs who wanted him? According to the sites I’ve read about him, he’s very athletic, quick and a solid professional.

Two out three ain’t bad, I’m not a McKenna fan myself, but I’ve only had fleeting glimpses of him when Forest played him occasionally, so my opinion is limited. I prefer the younger player trying to make his mark?
