What happened to the new megabucks investment that was rumoured last year?


1.) 14 Feb 2020 10:23:28
DOIGER, it's been rumoured for more than last year.

I personally think we are being taken for mugs wi some o the stuff leaked by our hierarchy.

2.) 14 Feb 2020 10:55:52
it got the flu.

3.) 14 Feb 2020 11:41:58
If you refer to share issue referred to at agm it’s supposed to start around end of March.

4.) 14 Feb 2020 13:07:18
Don't think he means the share issue John, think he means the supposed Chinese billionaire.
I can't speak for him that's up to him but that's the one I'm on about.

5.) 14 Feb 2020 13:31:42
Doiger, the end of next month should see major changes, mate.

6.) 14 Feb 2020 14:28:01
At know time has rangers or anyone connected with rangers said that a Chinese billionaire will be investing in our club
Are you referring to Julian Wolthard one of our directors who many believe will buy more shares in our club and possibly Be the man to replace king as our chairman.

Blue billy where are you getting info re billionaire investing in us mate.

7.) 14 Feb 2020 16:09:56
It was on here last year John and not just once, that made it look like not just a rumour, also saw something in the papers about it many months ago.

8.) 14 Feb 2020 16:47:43
Blue billy that’s guys like u me etc posting rumours. Don’t think it’s happening.

9.) 14 Feb 2020 17:46:34
You prob right John but I def saw something in papers a long time ago.
Time will tell but wi you on prob nothing going to happen .

Cheers mate.

10.) 14 Feb 2020 18:07:05
Sirwalter there has been rumours in papers some attributed to Alex Rae. As you say time will tell.

11.) 14 Feb 2020 18:08:16
Guys u picking up elite default on paying us three million they owe us, we served court papers on them, I predict they will fold.

12.) 14 Feb 2020 19:05:06
John, do you think the mysterious french billionaire you met in Dubai, and who told you everything is the new money man?

That’s the word in China.

13.) 14 Feb 2020 19:28:10
No I don’t. I think he was a chancer Tommy.

14.) 15 Feb 2020 20:08:47
Respect for reply John.



24 Jan 2020 08:52:23
Anyone read about possible interest in Charlton Athletic's Lyle Taylor. I think there were rumours on here quite recently. 29 year-old striker who seems to be unsettled.


1.) 24 Jan 2020 11:26:15
Rumours all over papers for weeks now. Bang average striker imo.

2.) 24 Jan 2020 12:57:53
spot on paul

from what i’ve read and seen he looks a journeyman at best nowhere near what we need. I hope we can still get a striker in even a loan for run in

i remember we signed wee barry back on last day of window and smellies got bellamy

wonder if SG has something up his sleeve.

3.) 24 Jan 2020 13:26:24
Read it on a few sites but wages would be a stumbling block unless it is a freebie.

4.) 24 Jan 2020 16:42:42
Swap doherty for taylor at Charlton



16 Dec 2019 13:11:14
Drawn against Braga of Portugal in Europa League. Having disposed of Porto surely we have a great chance to reach the last 16?


1.) 16 Dec 2019 13:50:14
Agreed doiger, we have a great chance o progressing to the last 16 giving the fact we drew with one of the best teams in there leauge Porto drawing 1-1 away and winning. 2-0 at ibrox convincingly.

2.) 16 Dec 2019 13:50:50
This is my hope if we get to the last 16 money is real good.

3.) 16 Dec 2019 16:34:18
Yea the draw could have been much
Worse hopefully at least 16 beckons
And a few more quid in, the bank.

4.) 16 Dec 2019 17:36:59
Lads don't be fooled by Bragas league position. I agree it's a very winable tie but they were the top scorers in the league section of the Europa League with 15 goals and won all 3 of their away games beating Wolves, Besiktas and Slovan Bratislava. I still believe we can win this one and get to the last 16 but I'm just saying we shouldn't underestimate them because they are not as well known a team as we could have drawn.

C'mon the gers.

5.) 16 Dec 2019 17:57:40
Braga have a few good players. The 2 Horta's, trincao etc and they've comfortably won nearly everything in there way in the EL this season. Very tricky but do-able.

6.) 16 Dec 2019 18:23:47
Would still have took them over inter ajax etc. 50/ 50 tie good chance of progress.

7.) 17 Dec 2019 05:41:40
Good draw, but they were a better team than wolves in their group, and I wouldn't have fancied wolves tbh!
One step at a time
Onward and upward.

8.) 17 Dec 2019 06:55:53
Tough task non the less, Bragg have obviously set their sites on Europe and they’re a different team on match day in europa league games, one of those clubs who know thy won’t win the Portuguese league but can do well in Europe, ie Seville,

Very good in group stages,

9.) 17 Dec 2019 11:50:53
Does anyone know if the draw for the last 16, should we make it through, is an open draw, i. e. could we be drawn against the unwashed in the last 16?

10.) 17 Dec 2019 15:21:51
Yes we could Doiger.

11.) 17 Dec 2019 16:24:43
A word of warning guys re Braga. just remember. when we won the Cup Winners Cup in season 71/ 72 we were a distant third in the league 16 points behind Celtic. we were positively schizophrenic that season our league performances having no correlation to our performances on the European front.



08 Dec 2019 11:32:50
I've looked at all the major newspaper/ media websites this morning and can see no reference to Davis and or Kent not making it today. Barisic is the only injury doubt in the press. Where do these 'rumours' come from?


1.) 08 Dec 2019 12:23:48
Hope you're spot on, Doiger.

2.) 08 Dec 2019 13:38:11
Doiger story at corporate no Davis, hope they r wrong.

3.) 08 Dec 2019 13:50:10
Spoke about this earlier. Davis our with a calf strain. Etta miss 3-4 weeks.



08 Aug 2019 10:12:29
Sky Sports reporting that Brandon Barker will be in Glasgow today to complete loan deal. I understand he is a Rangers fan too.


1.) 08 Aug 2019 10:55:29
is he not out of contract Doiger - thought i read that somewhere .

anyway he ripped us a new one when he came off bench in 5-5 game and looked pacy and direct so i’d take him

especially if grezda leaves and poss hastie / murphy go on loan.

2.) 08 Aug 2019 10:59:50
Loan says he signing 3 yr deal.

3.) 08 Aug 2019 11:10:44
I have heard this is not a loan deal i have heard that he is coming on a permanent deal and a fee has been agreed with man city. don't think we need another winger tho.

4.) 08 Aug 2019 12:11:53
Of what i've heard brandon barker is signing for us on a permanent deal,
not on a loan deal. We've agreed a fee with man city for him.

5.) 08 Aug 2019 12:42:22
Mark Allen written all over it which I don’t say in a positive manner.

6.) 08 Aug 2019 12:47:18
Another signing who doesn't improve our first team to be honest!

7.) 08 Aug 2019 12:55:08
Maybe he doesn’t but we also need to look at the future. This is a decent signing.

Be positive!

8.) 08 Aug 2019 13:37:14
Heard exact same negativety when Kamara was signed .

9.) 08 Aug 2019 13:58:23
great bit a business. has good potential n free transfer.

10.) 08 Aug 2019 15:52:54
Although its not an issue DOIGER but what makes you think barker is a rangers supporter mate?

11.) 08 Aug 2019 16:11:54
Barker is a free if we sign him.

The three class sides left in the Europa League who have won European trophies are Inter, Man Utd and Seville. We can go head-to-head with any of the others. To win it, these are the teams ultimately we must beat. My £5 @ 80/ 1 back in August for Gers to win it is now down to 40/ 1. You never know!


1.) 28 Feb 2020 16:20:50
Good bet DOIGER, don't you mean 4 teams who have won a European Trophy, us included.

2.) 28 Feb 2020 17:15:33
Great point Irvger, sorry!

3.) 28 Feb 2020 17:28:54
Have Roma not won a Euro trophy? I would think maybe a couple more in there lads lol.

4.) 28 Feb 2020 17:37:49
Actually Roma haven't but our opponents leverkusen have. So have Frankfurt and I can also mind Shaktar winning something a few years ago!

5.) 28 Feb 2020 17:37:52
Doiger, i see one of the copenhagen players has been charge arged with police assault, in celtic fc stadium, serious, i wonder if that will get that lot back in thru the back door. lol.

6.) 28 Feb 2020 17:47:34
Doiger I hope u win your bet.



28 Feb 2020 08:09:08
Now let's see if the unwashed have an adverse reaction to their defeat last night when they play St. Johnstone on Sunday. As we found out, the Saints are on a good run of form. Meantime, who should play for us against Hearts tomorrow? Surely our lads must be on a high after beating Braga and now go on to a great run until the end of the season?


1.) 28 Feb 2020 09:29:58
I'll tell you one thing. Our centre half pairing against hearts on saturday evening, has to be connor goldson and george edmundson. They look very good together and edmundson has a good turn of pace!
Said repeatedly on here that i like big katic, but he's erratic at times and goldson has to constantly run out of position to cover his gap!
I think edmundson will become an outstanding centre half for us!

2.) 28 Feb 2020 09:37:45
Id keep same team apart from alfie for kamberi from now on try get consistency and understand our best team.

3.) 28 Feb 2020 09:39:01
Not sure it was saints run of form which cost us points last week doiger. They won't slip up they will likely come out and batter them for 5. My prefered line up for sat.

Tav goldson edmundson borna

Hagi arfield jack kent

Morelos kamberi

But very aware no chance us playing 2 up top.

4.) 28 Feb 2020 09:56:57
Isn’t Kamberi cup tied?

5.) 28 Feb 2020 10:12:21
Yes Kamberi is Cup Tied.

6.) 28 Feb 2020 10:13:50
Yes kamberi cup tied.

7.) 28 Feb 2020 10:48:43
Ahwel normal formation morelos up front 😂.

8.) 28 Feb 2020 17:53:10
SG says Defoe maybe in squad.



25 Feb 2020 17:38:59
Liverpool have won the Champions League twice in the last few years without being champions of England. Maybe an omen!




24 Feb 2020 16:15:26
Just watched highlights of St Johnstone game again. What a goal by Kamberi. He looks big and strong. Katic was getting all the praise a few weeks ago but now looks like a bomb scare. Morelos seems to have lost all confidence.


1.) 24 Feb 2020 16:46:30
Fair comment Doiger. Don’t believe Katic should have started, been struggling for a few weeks and given is age and lack of experience should have been benched. Kamberi looks lively and great goal and assist.

2.) 24 Feb 2020 21:43:31
Morelos has not lost his confidence he just wants a transfer and a new challenge, he was not allowed to leave in January and there were zero offers because he can’t behave and acts like a spoilt child, time to grow up.



24 Feb 2020 08:03:31
Morning Bears. It has been hard to take since after the winter break and I can't fathom out how/ why a team that was really motoring up to the end of the year and in pole position after beating Celtic at the piggery can now be 12 points behind. It is the same team, same players, same manager. So what has gone wrong? Something must have happened in Dubai. I've always been prepared to give Gerrard three seasons to win silverware so hopefully he can get things sorted from now until the end of the season and win the Scottish Cup. The annoying thing is that Celtic are nothing special, but they are grinding out results when they need to. It's never over until the fat lady sings but lose the next two games this week and our season will be well and truly gone.


1.) 24 Feb 2020 10:03:40
I think we lost a bit of momentum with the break. I can't believe the posts wanting Gerrard out - not you Doiger - it's absurd. We've been unlucky with injuries to Tavernier, Helander, Barisic, Defoe and Jack and Morelos' suspension doesn't help. One puzzle is the form of Kent.

2.) 24 Feb 2020 10:36:35
You are right kfraser. Hardly mention on here the injuries we've had. Good players don't become bad overnight. We are missing Defoe and missed Jack too. Maybe Europa League glory beckons?

3.) 24 Feb 2020 10:42:49
what were our stats when TAV was compared to since he has returned?

4.) 24 Feb 2020 10:54:13
I am with you Doiger. I still want Gerrard here for a third season and before anyone jumps on the bandwagon and says its just because he is a celebrity I can assure you it isn't. I want him here because of the progress Rangers have made which is clear. We DO have a better calibre of player than before he came in. We HAVE done better in Europe which brings revenue with it and we ARE more competitive against Celtic.

Since the winter break we have been garbage, no doubt about it and the players have to take their share of the blame although I have stated on here before that I don't agree with SG berating his team in interviews. SG is still learning and is making mistakes. His inability to change tactics has been a frustration and his previous reluctance to make early substitutions was equally frustrating although that has improved in the last couple of games. These flaws aside I believe that by sticking with SG he will eventually learn from his mistakes and that he will be a good manager. I don't think his backroom team have the necessary experience at this level either. With the exception of Gary Mac I believe that all the other first team coaches came from youth football and Gary Macs CV as a manager/ assistant manager isn't that impressive. Maybe the coaching team in general are not strong enough or experienced enough to better advise SG.

Just a thought lads.

5.) 24 Feb 2020 11:25:27
Not a bad post.

6.) 24 Feb 2020 14:38:26
So MOC at the end of the season and just for saying sake we've won nothing then you would give him another season?

You talk about a calibre of player? Yes but don't forget we spent 7m on a player who has been totally dreadful. so I should hope so.

Europe is a bonus and your right we have done well but our league is our bread and butter.

Champions league is were we need to be for the money to role in.

You've mentioned the coaching team. We have now employed 3 rookie managers. Untried and untested. Regardless of what people think I want SG to do well but the job is just too big.

7.) 24 Feb 2020 16:05:19
As1974 yes I woukd still keep Gerrard even if we win nothing this season. We have progressed and we are doing better in every competition since he came in. Another 2 reasons I would keep him is because firstly we simply can't afford to pay off him and his coaching team and secondly because I believe he will learn and become a good manager.

Having posted earlier about the first team coaching set up being too inexperienced I did a wee bit of googling. All the staff are very inexperienced at first team level and there is zero experience of Scottish football there. I think that is a big mistake.

I agree with you Supercoop. Morelos would cause havoc in English Premiership defences. VAR would be working overtime! Fellow Bears, stop knocking Morelos, he is class.

Does anyone know if the draw for the last 16, should we make it through, is an open draw, i. e. could we be drawn against the unwashed in the last 16?

13 Dec 2019 11:37:50
Gp. I think we agree about the lack of killer instinct. Defoe hasn't come on and contributed much recently. Maybe the return of Jones and Murphy to the squad will widen our options. Having said that, we have only lost one league game all season and the league cup final by one goal. Also, we only lost one game in our Europa League group, so all told that isn't bad. We've won at home with some thumping wins in the league so have the ability to win well, so what has gone wrong in the last three games? Arfield's form has certainly dipped and Kent hasn't shown me he is worth £7 million. Davis might have made a difference in the last two games. We need a good win at Motherwell on Sunday and who knows what Hibs might do at the Piggery? I'm still confident we'll pick up silverware this season. How big is the game against Celtic later this month now?

So when do some of these youngsters get a chance. You say they are not ready Covenanter but this is what I've been hearing since the days of McCoist in 2012/ 13. If he had given youth a chance when we were dumped down to the Division 3 then the team would have come through and by the time they'd reached the top tier again would have been magnificent. Sick to death of hearing same old. So the current team are 'ready' are they?

You are correct Kaz, but if we lose to Braga then Hearts in the next two games the season is well and truly f****ed!
