Anyone know if there is any weight to the Damian Garcia rumours or. is it just Rumour with no substance.


1.) 03 Jun 2024 21:14:20
I’m starting to think that to be fair.



14 Aug 2023 19:57:39
I see there are rumours of us being interested in zak vyner from Bristol City. Does anyone know if there is any truth to this rumour or is it just click bait. Also does anyone know if we are looking to bring in a wide player, heard that Beale said he'd like to bring in someone to replace Kent? And seen Palma's name being banded about again. Anyone got any info about these rumours.


1.) 14 Aug 2023 20:30:19
Beale has said this evening there's no truth in Vyner rumour. John suggested 2 still to come in and it would look logically to be a cb and winger. No idea who as names seem to have dried up but wouldn't be surprised if 1 was a loan late in the window.

2.) 14 Aug 2023 21:04:08
Probably depends on potential outgoing players too.

3.) 14 Aug 2023 21:13:20
Think it will depend on outgoings and whether we can get into the champions league. If we do shift some players out and get the group stages we may be open to spending a little more on both positions if not then possibly look at someone out of contract or a loan deal for 1 and spend on the other.

4.) 14 Aug 2023 21:21:57
Tomorrow night is the big deal if it's good then exciting stuff could happen .



23 Jul 2022 13:53:48
Is there any info on our interest in Darius Olaru? Boy looks a player.


1.) 23 Jul 2022 15:20:10
His agent remains in negotiations with Torino. As soon as Yilmaz is unveiled early to mid next week Ross will make an opening offer of 5.5 million plus 2.5 million in add ons. Italy is the more likely destination though.

2.) 23 Jul 2022 16:19:26
War if they are talking to torino why would we wait till next week to bid Doesn’t make any
Sense whatsoever.

John already said we have made a bid for him am sure.

3.) 23 Jul 2022 16:53:23
The manager of FCSB is a bit of an oddball an speaks publicly about their transfer business. When it comes to Olaru, he said a team had come in before and offered 5m euros. He said he would accept no less than 7m euros and that he wouldn’t sell the player at all if he had a choice.

So yeah, it sounds like 7m euros would get the on done.

4.) 23 Jul 2022 17:26:08
We’ve never been interested in him.

5.) 23 Jul 2022 17:27:33
Gio has stated that yilmaz is the last piece of business

Unless someone is outgoing they shall be no more incoming.

6.) 23 Jul 2022 17:45:33
no more signings gio said, don't know where this olaru talk came from.

7.) 23 Jul 2022 18:26:55
Of course Gio will say no more business. Why alert other teams to interest in a transfer target?

8.) 23 Jul 2022 18:34:15
After making 7 signings
And him publicly stating no more
I’d take his word

Just the same as he could have said
There’s a few more to come.

9.) 23 Jul 2022 23:40:05
No more signings what about Kent and buffalo ??.



04 Jan 2022 18:00:12
Can anyone tell me what is happening with the young American lad from Orange County - Francis Jacobs?
I thought he was supposedly signed and due to join us at the end of the last MLS season.
Anyone got any info about this?


1.) 04 Jan 2022 18:05:49
Cmac my understanding this window.

2.) 04 Jan 2022 18:20:42
It would be good to get a look at him in the flesh. See what all the fuss was about. Hopefully he'll turn out to be another Kamara like bargain.



03 Jan 2022 09:58:55
A mate of mine thinks we're after a Russian GK by the name of Matvey Sofanov
He plays for Krasnodar but, I can't find anything linking him to us.
Has anyone hear of this lad and any info on him being linked to Rangers.


1.) 03 Jan 2022 12:29:42
Highly unlikely. Haven’t heard this anywhere and knowing the boy, he’s very very highly rated in Russia. One of the most promising young keepers going and would be surprised if he didn’t end up at Zenit/ CSKA or the likes. He’s also the Russia national #1.

2.) 03 Jan 2022 15:32:27
Hagi72, i have to be honest mate, I had no idea who he was but, I have since looked him up and your 100% right. He looks to be attracting interested fro Zenit and I would imagine he is out of our price range. I've no idea where my pal got this from but, one thing is clear and that is we will need to find a replacement for Shagger sooner rather than later.

Question for John, does Lovelace qualify as a home grown?


1.) 24 Jun 2024 12:04:49
Cmac, not till start of next season joined us July 22.
Needs three years with us.

2.) 24 Jun 2024 12:04:58
No he’s not been here long enough.

3.) 24 Jun 2024 12:48:06
It will be interesting to see how he does this season.

4.) 24 Jun 2024 13:23:33
he qualifies for the B-List of players as only need to be U21 and with the club for an uninterupted period of 2 years.

Last season with Lowery, McCausland, Devine, McKinnon and Frazer all being eligible for B list. if they stay, then for the 25/ 26 season they take a spot in the 25 man list.

i might be wrong but was looking into this the other night when trying to work out who currently classes as Homegrown or B list.

5.) 24 Jun 2024 13:28:52
It’s irrelevant as he is under 21 so doesn’t affect us as a non home grown player.

6.) 24 Jun 2024 13:31:25
I thought as much. In your opinion John, how many of our youth players could be used to make up the euro squad home grown allocation. And is there any of them particularly we should look out for in the future. You seem well clued up on this, I take it you watch a fair bit of the youth teams playing.

7.) 24 Jun 2024 14:04:09
Did the boy fraser sign a new deal? Havent seen anything.

8.) 24 Jun 2024 14:16:42
Cmac see my post above.

Costly number players u name eligible for 25 squ This year.

9.) 24 Jun 2024 14:16:51
Dado, yes mate he signed another contract.

10.) 24 Jun 2024 14:17:37
Cmac I think Archie Steven’s could push through.
Nail out on loan also.

11.) 24 Jun 2024 14:58:29
Nail out on loan.

12.) 24 Jun 2024 15:07:40
Let's hope we don't just keep young lads for European purposes only. These young guys are good enough to play 15 spfl games a season with the correct experience around them.

13.) 24 Jun 2024 16:08:25
John your 27 again bud.

14.) 24 Jun 2024 18:14:07
Fork, I’m not sure what’s happening, I’ve tried to rectify lol.

15.) 24 Jun 2024 18:55:02
Maybe different devices John?

16.) 24 Jun 2024 20:11:01
Ah wouldn't bother bud we all know it you anyway mate??.



27 Feb 2024 08:14:36
John27, did you see the B side play yesterday. How did Ishaka play? I know you rate this lad and wa just wondering how he played? I saw Zak Lovelace assist for Nsio's goal and what a ball that was!
Hope some of these kids make it into the first team squad. Would love to see our Youth set up make a big impact going forward.


1.) 27 Feb 2024 09:18:29
Ishaka done good, the lad needs minutes to gain match sharpness.

2.) 27 Feb 2024 11:52:40
Seen that ball from Lovelace and Nsio took it exceptionally well and nice finish.

3.) 27 Feb 2024 12:20:32
I really like Nsio, good size and athleticism.

4.) 27 Feb 2024 14:17:02
Where’s he from? Nsio.

5.) 27 Feb 2024 15:32:15
Nsio, from London and has English citizenship, eligible for Congo.

6.) 27 Feb 2024 15:58:50
Nsio is of DR Congo descent. John I agree he has the stature and athleticism.

7.) 27 Feb 2024 18:15:14
GDOG he has dual citizenship, English and DR of the Congo.



27 Jan 2024 23:24:29
It's all good and well people banging on about bringing in a goal scorer but, imo you can't score no matter how good you are if chance creation is poor. We have not created lots of chances in many of our games this season so, what difference would a goalscorer make u less we create more scoring opportunities. I think we need more creative players in the team.


1.) 28 Jan 2024 06:01:41
Great post fans on here bang in that strikers will get more chances at rangers but our service to the strikers in the last few seasons has been rotten.

2.) 28 Jan 2024 07:31:03
Bang on the money, Cmac ?.

3.) 28 Jan 2024 08:29:07
Exactly why cantwell will be replaced in the team.

4.) 28 Jan 2024 08:30:12
Is that not why Silva and Diomande have been signed? . We create far more chances than Hearts in most games and have scored more goals than them every season. Hopefully these guys can push us on for 2nd half of season.

5.) 28 Jan 2024 08:49:57
CMac Diomande will fill that void.

6.) 28 Jan 2024 08:59:35
Agree mate. Front to middle still struggling. We definitely need more guile.

7.) 28 Jan 2024 09:07:25
So if Dessers gets injured who do we play upfront? Silva isn't a goalscorer.

8.) 28 Jan 2024 09:09:33
Huey am talking guilt edge chances.

9.) 28 Jan 2024 09:25:41
Chances are chances??, a better quality player takes them.

10.) 28 Jan 2024 09:47:03
A striker will definitely be coming in.
It’s just a case of who and if it’s a loan or a real target for next season as well.

11.) 28 Jan 2024 09:53:55
Aye but a good striker also creates his and makes his own chances, as well its not all assists, thoo it is a big help.

12.) 28 Jan 2024 10:49:33
We have missed 3 open goals and 2 sitters in the last 5 OF games. 4 games we could've easily have win so I'm unsure about no guilt edge opportunities not being created.

13.) 28 Jan 2024 10:54:33
Dujon, we need Kent back to take those chances. he'd also assist the assist.



30 Nov 2023 22:40:16
How did we end up in this situation. Who is responsible for. the overseeing of Beales recruitment? How. arw we in a position where we need to get rid of brand ew signings
Dessers, Lammers, Cifuentes plus barasic, Davies and many more. I'm absolutely fed up with the mismanagement of our great club.
I can't afford much more than my season ticket and yet this is the rubbish they are offering up for the cash I work so hard for. **** off the lot of them!


1.) 01 Dec 2023 07:33:23
Not sure its widespread mismanagement - they trusted MB, a guy with a decent track record albeit mostly in coaching, and he got it badly wrong.



21 Sep 2023 22:01:26
Couple of things from tonight, Rangers need some players who can put a foot on the ball and install some calmness in the team. We done excellent to win this game but, it was very very hard work. I hope that we have a good run in the europa. I missed out on tickets due to financial reasons but, I will continue to. support on a weekly basis. ?⚪?.


1.) 21 Sep 2023 22:07:27
A Steve davis type would have been immense for us tonight, nothing against lunny but a Davo of 4/ 5 years ago in there would be great.

2.) 22 Sep 2023 00:00:30
Spot on Stevie, Davis is a very difficult player to replace. His positional sense and calmness on the ball is exactly what our midfield lacks. Need Davis to spend time with Raskin and improve that side of his game and maybe a few others.

John, do you know if we have any interest in any other Scottish players? I've read on here about the lad Miller from Motherwell but, that's about it. Is there any interest from us?

The board have to do what's right for the club. If it worked out cheaper to get imported materials then that was the correct thing to do but, only as long as the quality of those materials met the same standards as buying materials closer to home.

Barbru, we don't need Scottish players to compete in Europe. If I'm correct they only need to have been part of our youth set up for 3 years and or be Scottish. We already have players like Rice, MacKinnon, McAusland and robbie Fraser who could make up some of the home grown quota for European games.

Hey John, how far away are some of our own young gk for the number 3 jersey. These young lads have to see a path to the first team or else they will leave. Is Munn far away?

John, surely you don't mean that mccrorie, Davies, dowel, Lawrence, lammers, hagi, and the rest are free?
Surely we would command a good fee for most of these players? Or did I just misunderstand that post.

The guy has taken some amount of stick from our fans as well as being ridiculed by other fans in Scotland. We deserve a better striker than him but, as person big Cirel didn't deserve the abuse he got.
