Parts of the media today reporting that Ross Barkley is odds-on to join Rangers. Also, the Evander transfer story is gathering pace as he has apparently knocked back a move to Turkey. Interesting.


1.) 31 Aug 2022 09:39:48
Can't see either joining.

2.) 31 Aug 2022 12:05:55
Someone would have to go first.

3.) 31 Aug 2022 17:14:30
I'd love to see Evander join but that would cost money so I don't see it happening. As for Barkley, no thanks. That would be a waste of money!



31 Jan 2022 15:22:23
Ramsey is apparently in Glasgow as I write this post.




17 Nov 2021 08:19:13
Morning Bears. The Herald reporting this morning that van Bronckhurst is set to be announced as the new Rangers manager as early as today.


1.) 17 Nov 2021 08:52:13
Yet the Record say it's unlikely we'll have a manager in place in time for Sunday.

2.) 17 Nov 2021 08:54:59
Hope so🤞.

3.) 17 Nov 2021 08:58:43
No they have not just read it.

4.) 17 Nov 2021 09:33:36
11am apparently 🤣🤣🤣🤣
Not sure what day though. I'm waiting on GDog's daily update😂😂😂.

5.) 17 Nov 2021 09:49:26
Groundhog Day ☺.

6.) 17 Nov 2021 09:53:10
I’m still of them opinion Gio will be our next manager I’ve no proof of that it’s just my thoughts on it but he will not be in the dugout on Sunday again just my thoughts, I see him in the stand but this happens often when the new manager is in place just a few days before a game but are in the stand, I’ve looked through all the posts over the last few days and I think we just need to give the board the time they need to get the new manager in place it takes time contracts to deal with back room staff budget there are loads of things to iron out but I’ll be very happy with Gio stay calm.

7.) 17 Nov 2021 10:25:15
Apparently photographers outside the training centre.

8.) 17 Nov 2021 11:11:19
Didn't take to much time for villa to sort Gerrard contracts out 24hrs by all accounts so really ot takes as long as a conversation to be dictated and printed then signed.

9.) 17 Nov 2021 11:33:09
Ness the difference is the backroom staff Gio wants could be scattered around a number of different clubs and continents. Gerrard and his team were prepared for an offer and move to the EPL. Villa only had Rangers to deal with for all staff.

10.) 17 Nov 2021 11:33:32
I could guarantee you it takes more than 24 hour to sort contracts of an they may of course reach an agreement in principle though.

11.) 17 Nov 2021 12:01:25
MPH i think GDog must be going for 11am tomorrow now that it’s past that today.

12.) 17 Nov 2021 12:58:29
Can’t believe anyone thinks millions of pounds contract dealings “ take as long as it takes to have a conversation dictated?, printed, and signed “

Are you at the wind up mate.

13.) 17 Nov 2021 13:25:38
Think I'm right in saying, although deal was agreed for SG, he didn't sign it for a few days until certain things were sorted?
No offence to anybody on here, but I would want some definite backing from the board in January signed off before I agreed anything.
And get it in writing.

14.) 17 Nov 2021 13:27:38
NessBear; do you really think it was all done and dusted in 24hrs I think there may have been a lot went on before it was announced remember SG snd Villa chairman are friends I don’t believe for one minute there was no contact prior to the appointment only my thoughts.

15.) 17 Nov 2021 13:28:15
If Gio is to be our next manager, it will take time as his No 2 continues to be contracted to the Chinese club. People on here say that Numan would be great, if this is true, he is contracted to the Dutch Club as Chief Scout. Just 2 examples of why it could take a long time.

16.) 17 Nov 2021 13:33:13
What difference if its today, tomorrow or next week it’s going to happen anyway and the new manager will need time.



25 Jun 2021 08:28:40
It is reported in the S*n this morning that Morelos (or his agent) has agreed terms with Porto for a move there. Anyone else heard this?


1.) 25 Jun 2021 09:21:04
Heard it but only through the papers so wouldn't bet on it being 100 percent factual. It gets on my goat nowadays how these agents are agreeing terms with clubs before a fee has been agreed. I'm assuming they will have had to have been given permission by rangers to talk, but in my opinion you shouldn't be allowed to until fee is agreed. Makes it easier to turn a players head.

2.) 25 Jun 2021 09:27:17
All over news in portugal. Its where the sun and record got there story from. Would be very shocked if rangers dealt at 10 million. 15million is probably a fair price. Think he's definitely gone tho. Will we bring in another striker? Borre was mentioned.

3.) 25 Jun 2021 09:39:03
How can he agree terms unless rangers gave permission for him to talk to them?

4.) 25 Jun 2021 10:13:52
How can he agree terms unless rangers gave permission for him to talk to them?

There is a loophole in the football legislation regarding this, the player isn't allowed to speak to another club until the fee has been agreed, but the agent can speak to any club and negotiate.

5.) 25 Jun 2021 10:18:09
Rangers must have ok’d something or it wouldn’t be so public, it may happen behind the scenes but this has been all public since before the agent set foot in Portugal.
He’s clearly leaving so all the best to him, he leaves us with some great and not so great memories lol
However, we must hold out for maximum money. Don’t accept £10m n awe that s*** as what does that tell other clubs about the rest of our squad.

6.) 25 Jun 2021 10:48:42
I'll tell you one thing, alfredo will only be sold if porto or whoever else wants to sign him, meets our asking price, i'm very confident of that 👍Gone are the days that we're going to sell any of our players for well below their worth!

7.) 25 Jun 2021 11:11:26
Did he not agree terms with a French club last year.

8.) 25 Jun 2021 12:58:57
SGL i think he will go for around 13 mill with add ons. definitely won't get as much as were wanting last season.

9.) 25 Jun 2021 13:22:24
Looks like he is away for around 15m including add on’s, think Clark-Harris would be a good replacement for 7-8 Million.

10.) 25 Jun 2021 13:31:25
Hendo would rather bring borre in on a free. Were never going to spend 7mill again this season on 1 player. We have also got sakala in aswel.

11.) 25 Jun 2021 13:55:28
Fashion is already the replacement for me. I have high hopes for him he looks like the real deal and a style of player Rangers have never had. Proper technique for European football!

If 10m is the figure its a disgrace and frankly an embarrassment of a deal! Buff's all round game increased last season and for me his stock rose it did not fall. His link play was immense and contribution at times was exceptional. If Porto want him or anyone else, you don't accept less otherwise why do they want him. He bullied Portos defense for fun!

Shocking deal if true!

12.) 25 Jun 2021 18:14:05
Coop we won't get what we want for him. 1. He isn't worth it and 2. He will throw his toys out the pram again until he gets his move. He doesn't want to be here. I told you's this during the winter window of 2020.👍.

13.) 25 Jun 2021 18:33:18
Can agree whatever they want but if our valuation is not met the agreement is useless.

14.) 25 Jun 2021 19:00:25
So do we end up with a fredo who will down tools again, same as he did last summer bellshill.? 👍.

15.) 25 Jun 2021 22:13:04
Think he will go for around 12 with add on’s. We have a replacement already and I think another will arrive. I still think Kamara and Hagi likely to go. So maybe generate around 25-27 million in sales with good free’s. Big wages instead of transfer fees. 😁.

16.) 25 Jun 2021 22:32:57
Coldo i usually agree with you pal but not regarding alfredo morelos mate 🤔 I truly think steven gerrard and ross wilson have set a fee for morelos and if it isn't met by porto or whoever else wants to sign alfredo, then he won't be sold mate 🤔

I think taking all things into account regarding the full alfredo package, then he most definitely is worth £15million and with add ons we should be getting close to that £20million mark 🤔

Also mate i rate glen kamara highly but he's not a £20million midfielder for me, i reckon around £12million and rangers would accept that for kamara. there's rangers supporters on here saying kamara is world class, well certainly nowhere near world class for me, he's certainly international class.

Paul gascoigne was world class to put this overhyped world class statement into perspective! World class gets lauded far too easy against players regularly, who are nowhere near world class and that's the god's honest truth.

17.) 25 Jun 2021 23:36:41
Clarke Harris would be a good replacement but Rangers are never going to pay 7 to 8 million on a striker from Peterborough when we wouldn't pay that to get Ivan Toney when we were linked to him last year.

18.) 26 Jun 2021 10:28:47
Just think Paul, this guy is class even better than Toney, he would score goals and his value would treble, its a good financial model, this guy will end up in the EPL.

19.) 26 Jun 2021 10:59:51
How can u say kamara isn’t world class coops? Anytime he’s performed on the European stage he’s been in the top 3 on the park every time. Playing in the euros he was the best player on the park in each of the 3 games he played. So anytime he’s performed at the top level he’s exceeded expectations. His stats at the euros put him top of all players for most imterseptions in the group stage. Top stats motm performances etc. That would make him the best in that position. World class coops, is when you’re one of the best at what u do in you’re position in the world. I think kamara is one of the best at what he does mate. Does it take for him to move to England, like tierney. To be seen to be what he is? Can u not see it with your own eyes what he is? If not u don’t have much of an eye for a player mate.

20.) 27 Jun 2021 10:13:49
Kamara is a good but never in a million years world class.



26 Feb 2021 09:44:03
According to the Sun, Leicester City and Roma are preparing a bidding war at £20 million for Edouard. If he is worth that, El Buffalo must be worth £50 million!


1.) 26 Feb 2021 10:04:26
Professional coaches know what they are looking for and it may be that edouard is a superstar in waiting

It might be that Alf is also a prized target, last nig Will certainly help him in his aim to go, let’s hope that they want him as much as they want Ed our day, it helps Rangers go forward.

2.) 26 Feb 2021 10:13:20
Hope they get it, will help to pay Lawell's and Lenny's golden handshakes .

Well deserved golden handshakes , ha ha ha.

3.) 26 Feb 2021 12:19:57
Big secrets there i'm told, my best pal owns a sky box above the stand, always has former legends in for tea, , I know a few well, they have no doubt there's a major confidentiality clause for lennys silence thus the long drawn out sacking, they allowed him to embarrass himself every week in interviews broadcast nationwide, no club wants a manager who storms off duty during a media session, very strange that, very strange indeed that they let him carry on when he clearly cannot handle questions.

4.) 26 Feb 2021 12:23:22
We should buy eduard from celtic to replace the injury prone roofe.

5.) 26 Feb 2021 13:06:45
Being totally unbiased here guys, i honestly think that both rangers and celtic will lose their star strikers alfredo morelos and odsonne edouard for £20million upwards in transfer fees for both strikers in the summer 🤔.

6.) 26 Feb 2021 15:37:29
They will do coop.

7.) 26 Feb 2021 19:07:38
Think both will go for between 15 to 20 lads. Eduard down to last year come the summer his value will drop significantly in summer.

8.) 27 Feb 2021 15:43:02
Difference between Ed and Alf us Ed might be a superstar in the making but Alf us a superstar just now 🤩🤩.

Morning Bears
Last night was the first time I've had a chance to watch a full match for some time. The defence looked all over the place at times and the possession and passing in the final third was really poor. Only Lundstram, young MaCausland and Tavernier got pass marks for me and of course the big goalie. Clement has his work cut out to win any silverware based on last night's showing. It's a pity that Jack and Roofe are frequently injured as they would make a difference.


1.) 01 Dec 2023 10:15:47
DOIGER, tend to agree. Jack and Roofe will need to go this summer. we're in desperate need of a Dof. we need a clear out starting in January.

2.) 01 Dec 2023 10:23:15
What’s the update on injured players and returning for betis and cup games…

Improvement needed or both lost….



09 Nov 2023 21:01:13
Evening everyone. I haven't posted for ages since my wife passed earlier this year then I've been quite ill. What a **** year. Anyway, I've been encouraged by the appointment of Clement as manager so it sounds promising. What happened to the Live Chat? Sorry, I've been out of the loop for a while. Best wishes to all my fellow Bears.

16 Oct 2023 14:49:41
From what I've read, seen and heard from Phillippe Clement, I like the cut of his jib. He seems classy and determined to succeed. Good luck to him and well done to the Board for making an appointment so quickly. Here's hoping he will turn things round. WATP.


1.) 16 Oct 2023 15:35:58
Old news probably? I’ve read that he likes to work closely with a DOF, whether this is true or not I don’t know? But he’s a proven coach who wanted the job, so i’m sure he’ll get 100% backing from the fans.

2.) 16 Oct 2023 15:53:24
Looking at his profile he reminds me so much of Souness and appears to be a born winner.
I don't see him standing for any nonsense from players, he clearly has a good football knowledge and is an exceptional man manager, (which is perhaps the one trait that Souness relied on Walter for) .
I am also impressed with Bisgrove and Bennett, and I am encouraged that the Board took the decision to appoint a quality manager and to commit to backing him in the Transfer Market.

3.) 16 Oct 2023 16:17:15
It feels good to have an actual experienced manager who's won things, for the first time since we've came back up.

Hopefully this can be a turning point and lead to more and more success.

4.) 16 Oct 2023 18:21:31
Berkshire I see a lot of advocatt in him.

5.) 16 Oct 2023 20:10:11
Agree with that John ?.

6.) 17 Oct 2023 01:44:45
Can we stop with the stupid comparisons why does this happen every time there's a new manager.

Can we not just wait and see his team play and judge on the football.

7.) 17 Oct 2023 09:29:25
Go for could u please provide a list of what we are allowed to post.
I feel this may be helpful to many of us,



06 Oct 2023 15:58:40
I still think appointing Big Sam on a contract to the end of the season would be a good move. He would settle things down and then give the club a chance to decide a way forward. If he succeeds in winning silverware, then he might stay on. Christ, we can't do any worse than the last few managers, with the exception of Gerrard! Why was Beale allowed to sign all these foreign duds and why aren't our young home-bred players being given a chance, e. g. Lowry? Tavernier, good though he has been, isn't a captain so that needs to be sorted ASAP. Get Dave King back at the helm!


1.) 06 Oct 2023 17:15:24
Nope it wouldn’t.



04 Oct 2023 12:51:40
Why not appoint big Sam on a contract until the end of the season? He'd be up for that and would probably turn things around.


1.) 04 Oct 2023 15:00:22
Hi Doiger, did you not read what Ed001 posted about him yesterday mate? "Big Sam", or as Ed001 called him yesterday (I'm nicking this ?) "Scam", is a crook, a spiv, a dodgy no good waste of space who should be nowhere near our club. C'mon man, have we not had our fill of these Spivs over the years?
I also read on here that somebody was suggesting Harry Redknapp? I really think some need to do a wee bit more research on these 2 before putting their names forward. The 2 of them are as dodgy as they come. 2 despicable cretins only interested in lining their own pockets. Honestly, when I see tv companies, and media outlets fawning over Redknapp, it gives me to heave. He's a conman and a crook, whose greed impacted on several players over the years he was involved with to his benefit only. Please do some research on both, then come back on and tell us if you would still like to see them manage us?

2.) 04 Oct 2023 15:01:52
Not for me DOIGER. I don’t want that scoundrel anywhere near our club.

3.) 04 Oct 2023 16:05:30
Harry redknapp is a top bloke. Also good to see jamie redknapps brand taking off. Great clothes.

4.) 04 Oct 2023 16:51:04
Why is it good? Good for who.

Ramsey on loan until the end of the season would clinch the league title for us, provided that Juventus pay most of his wages. He is a top class midfielder, better than anyone playing in the Scottish Premiership at the moment. A midfield with Ramsey, Aribo and Davis would be terrific. You never know!

Hardie never got a chance so we'll never know what might have been and I'm not suggesting for a minute that Shankland is anything other than a squad striker. But if Morelos does go soon who have we got in the short term as a striker? Itten hasn't had a chance yet, nor has Roofe (who isn't a striker anyway) . My god, you are such a misery Coldo!

It's all about budgets these days craigs. Gone are the days when we could splash out £10 million for one player. Strength in depth is important as is being demonstrated with the injuries to Jack and Aribo in particular. I wish we had kept Docherty and/ or McCrorie though as either of them could have been a decent squad player. Also, I still say signing Shankland would bolster our attacking options, especially should Morelos go to Lille during this window.

Jack, Aribo, Hagi, Kamara, Davis, Arfield. They are all very good midfielders much better than Ferguson or anyone else in Scotland in my opinion. We seem to have the best defence for years and it is iron curtain defences that win titles. No point scoring 4 and conceding 3. Get Morelos sorted one way or the other and give Itten and Roofe a chance. By Christmas, we may well be out of sight (ahead, I mean lol) .

Morning Monty, good post. The problem is we don't have a natural goalscorer since Morelos left and Kent could grab a goal now and then too. I'd also say go for Shankland in January. We are clearly creating chances but nobody is taking them! The Real Betis game should be treated like a cup final, winner takes all.

I think we can still win the league despite the poor start under Beale. The team seems transformed since Clement came in. If we qualify for the knockout stages of the Europa League and win the League Cup (I think we'll do both) then that would be a great springboard for the second half of the season. Thanks again all you Bears for your kind wishes.

Tomthumb. You are spot on mate. I remember when I played amateur football in Dundee in the 1970s for Downfield and Lochee United there were a couple of players who had sublime talent and could have made it as pros but they had flawed personalities and issues to do with booze and birds. Sadly they never made it beyond amateur level. For some, it just doesn't work out or wasn't meant to be.
