So Aberdeen have refused rangers permission to speak to mcinnes. why has it took 6 weeks to do this. I'm not happy.


1.) 05 Dec 2017 19:47:39
I’m fine with it I want a good manager not an average manager and to be honest I don’t think he could do any better than what murtys doing just now

2.) 05 Dec 2017 19:48:53
Who knows, getting money together for compensation?

Do you think that's the end of it or will Derek force the move?

3.) 05 Dec 2017 20:12:43
Why would he even want the job now? they've clearly known all this time its who they wanted and their only now making an approach? Ridiculous. he's not my first choice but i think its embarrassing they've fecked about all this time. If they wanted him they should have made the move sooner, he himself must be thinking its a carry on. Not exactly appealing to someone is it all this mucking about. If he has a release clause can they even refuse permission if it the compensations met? I don't think he will take the job now any way. I hope they had a back up plan and move on it a bit sooner.

4.) 05 Dec 2017 20:15:45
If he wants it that bad he will walk and sign for us. That easy. Aberdeen, who the fk are aberdeen. We are rangers super rangers. We can still win the league this year its not too far away yet.

5.) 05 Dec 2017 20:21:43
Is it maybe a PR stunt that Aberdeen are making out that they’re refusing us contact and doing all they can to keep McInnes to save some face with their fans when he inevitably leaves? Soon find out I suppose.

6.) 05 Dec 2017 22:28:48
Maybe it took 6 weeks because they wanted the agm out the way first.

7.) 05 Dec 2017 22:49:01
Fodtheprod. . we can still win the league this year? . have u been sniffing glue! . the next manager doesn't stand a chance with supporters like u. Second this year and closer next year is good progress. and change your name

8.) 06 Dec 2017 04:53:34
Kinda makes sense waiting till after agm, now know that fresh investment can be made from shares so they will have a better idea of what they can offer as a transfer budget.

9.) 06 Dec 2017 08:18:56
Waiting till after AGM made sense. Also can't remember Rangers or anybody associated with, releasing any statement about who we would 'like'. So who was doing the 'mucking about'?
Also with a double header lined up we were on a no win situation.

10.) 06 Dec 2017 08:16:16
Excactly why has it taken so long Rangers took it for granted that when there 1st choice 2nd choice and god knows how many they have approached for the job? They thought well if all else fails we’ll have DM.

Mark Allen has been been a bad idea, a manger wants to run the team the way they want not to be told who to sign and play from a director of football doesn’t work in Scotland.

On the other hand I’m glad DM is not coming he was not for me I don’t believe we would have improved much at al and Europe would have been a failure just my thoughts.

for just now murty to be left in place Barry Ferguson in for his no. 2 to end of season re-asses and take it from there. Either that or Neil McCann comes in with murty again end of season re-asses?

11.) 06 Dec 2017 08:21:45
How does it work then? I thought he had a clause that allowed him to speak to anyone who met it? I take it we are trying to sound out if he would accept the job before making a bid?

12.) 06 Dec 2017 08:28:05
I disagree Dutch, our bunch of players have shown how good they can actually play, if we keep getting results ten points is not an unassailable lead in December



06 Nov 2017 15:27:52
Rangers rubbish any interest in Steve mcClaren. thank the sweet baby Jesus for that.


1.) 06 Nov 2017 15:34:07
This would be a very disappointing move from Rangers, all the fans are screaming to go and get the manager they want. Its not McLaren, he is a great coach. but that is it. He can't change the game, not good a reading and adapting the situation. much like Caxhina. So I feel it would be a like for like. we need McInnes!

2.) 06 Nov 2017 18:53:18
All the fans want McInness cammy1234? Absolutely not. He's an average manager and I don't want him anywhere near our club. I'm not the only one! Anyone but McInness for me. Celtic made a huge statement of intent with the Rodgers appointment. McInness would be our statement of intent: Second place mediocrity.

3.) 06 Nov 2017 19:18:43
McInnes is probably the market we’re in. I think he’s a very good manager and would be delighted with him. Just because he hasn’t been able to compete with Celtic doesn’t make him a bad manager. I’m a bit young so don’t remember but were all the fans delighted when Smith took over from Souness. Could be worse we could end up with McLeish

4.) 06 Nov 2017 22:31:33
I cringe when people say " McInnes terrific job at Aberdeen". an ok job I would say.

5.) 07 Nov 2017 07:45:26
Like it or not Aberdeen are better than us, At the moment. So I would say he has done a good job!

6.) 07 Nov 2017 08:10:09
Big Eck couldn't beat Selik and took Hivs down before bringing them back up. he then came to us and won 7 trophies in 4yr, a treble and last 16 of CL against a great Selik side and i think Mcinnes is a better manager than what Mcleish was back then

7.) 07 Nov 2017 11:03:22
Eck couldn't beat Celtic? Good grief! Won 7/ 8 trophies as Gers manager without Advocaat's millions. And 2 helicopter Sundays. Has everyone forgotten about this? Won a cup in England while Bristol City couldn't wait to get rid of McInnes. And was a successful Scotland boss. I think he and Murty could knock this lot into shape, no problem

8.) 07 Nov 2017 11:30:18
I'm pretty sure he meant he couldn't beat Celtic whilst he was manager of His.

9.) 07 Nov 2017 13:18:31
before mcinnes took over aberdeen they where struggling to stay in the top 6 so i wouldn't say he has done an ok job when the fact is he has been brilliant for them and got them in a stronger position than they have been for years.
he has done that with basically no money.

i believe he could make a name for himself here and our next manager should have experience in scottish football.
he will have a bigger budget here with us and have more success.

alll the fans that say no to him have never came up with a better option that's realistic.

all the other names we have been linked with are not good enough pardew -nope
moyes- thank god no
preuddhomme- another risk that doesn't know our game.
so who else do u lot want?
dont say eck as that's not even funny

10.) 07 Nov 2017 15:16:09
Aberdeen were struggling before McInnes. correct. The reason . they had a clueless manager called Mark Mcghee and then an old coffin dodger called Craig Brown.
DMc has done nothing special at Aberdeen.

11.) 07 Nov 2017 15:23:21
Who do you think it should be goramsgloves?

12.) 07 Nov 2017 15:32:23
Graham Potter a guy who we will be hearing a lot more of in months/ years ahead.
A guy who has managed to take his team to EL group stages unlike wonder boy McInnes

13.) 07 Nov 2017 15:34:05
Sorry guys, picked that up all wrong! Should have gone to Specsavers

14.) 07 Nov 2017 23:43:56
From the foregoing rumours it is abundantly clear that we seem to be in a bit of a quandary re the selection of a new manager. And why not? This is a huge crisis! We are all aware that we can not afford one more faux pas in the selection of our next manager. Even though the majority seem to be tending towards the present Aberdeen incumbent I get the feeling (by reading the many diverse opinions on this forum) that there are many who feel that he is not the man to solve our present problem.

So fellow fans just spare a thought for our board of directors who have to make a decision on this matter (and having already made two previous decisions that have back fired on them). Do you think they are not aware of the various opinion's of the fans? What if you were in their shoe's, Could you make that decision, and would you get it right?

I have been very highly impressed by Mutry on his handling of this situation, his almost eloquent interviews and his man management tactics are a joy to behold.
Here we go then, I am an Eighty year old Rangers fan who fervently hopes that I live to see the day when we have a team that will stop TEN IN A ROW. Please those of you that have the responsibility of selecting our next manager take your time and get the right man .

Now all of you fellow fans I too must surely have a choice. well, why not
I will go for - Mr WHO with Mutry as his second in command
Stick together lads and keep your heads high

15.) 08 Nov 2017 12:04:02
Its not just failing to beat Celtic, how many attempts has he had to get into the Europa league and failed miserably against opposition not much better than Progres?

16.) 08 Nov 2017 12:20:51
Totally agree Goramsgloves.

17.) 08 Nov 2017 12:35:24
Cheers only a game 👍 Sorry Seeker, should have worded that better

18.) 08 Nov 2017 13:14:04
seriously guys so with your method of thinking; a manager that comes from say crystal palace who hasn't won the league gets the job with a much much much bigger club (lets say man city for talking sake) that can attract a better quality of player and have much more money than crystal palace does this mean that said manager wouldn't be able to win anything with the bigger club?

honestly you guys can bee quite thick at times.

he made aberdeen better than they where and will do the same for us which is what we need at this moment in time.
who would u rather please don't tell me bick eck because he came into a brilliant team and left with a team finishing third not the answer guys

19.) 09 Nov 2017 08:46:54
peds11, not only is your post stupid, crass and insulting to the vast majority of fans who don't want your love fantasy as Rangers manager, you damned your own man with it. 'He made Aberdeen better' seems to be your one and only reason for giving this nonentity of a manager the biggest job in Scottish football - a job which will require him to show a measure of success over the next 3-4 years as that's where we expect a third of our income to come from.

As for McLeish, you've chosen a single candidate who has very little backing amongst the fans to try to deflect from your nonsense that Derek McInnes 'will do the same for us' with absolutely nothing to back that up. A failure in Englands third tier, an abject failure in Europe, and you see him as our saviour because he made the sheep shaggers a wee bit better. Aye right.



26 Oct 2017 18:54:45
Why did Pedro tell Miller and Wallace to stay away from ibrox last night. was this away of Pedro working his exit?


1.) 27 Oct 2017 07:35:43
He also told niko to stay away as well

2.) 27 Oct 2017 08:50:58
Maybe he had got a sniff that Miller and Wallace were involved behind his back. The whole episode stinks



12 Mar 2017 16:46:55
Can I say a huge well done mr murty, very well organised, that's just showed me how bad mark warburton was, he would never have lined up like that. great draw today, but we really could have nicked that there.


1.) 12 Mar 2017 17:15:24
It was actually just basic tactics tbh. warbs was to caught up in the 'barca way' of playing which only wrks for Barcelona type players. i actually thought murty won the tactical battle with brenda.

2.) 12 Mar 2017 17:44:24
With what i seen of the game i thought they played well. And proves that there isn't that much difference between them. Murty should take great pride in the job he's done these last few weeks. And although there's still work needing done the team look a lot better.

3.) 12 Mar 2017 23:05:48
agreed fellow bears, Murty and the players deserve great credit for result and performance today - just shows what you can do with some basic tactics, organisation and togetherness, sadly lacking for too long under MW

For long periods we held our own in the game and had a few great chances - a proper poacher wld surely have stuck 1 or 2 of them in the pokey.

I just wonder what Pedro made if it all and what his plans are for a very average squad - hopefully he sees like the rest of us a whole new spine is needed espesh 2 cntr halves 2 strong cntr mids (if hyndmans loan isn't extended) a poacher and quality winger with pace sorry baz you were poor today wee man and shoved aside and lost the ball far too easily.


4.) 12 Mar 2017 23:30:53
No wit bugs me rite we no our team isn't up to scratch and seam to be struggling in games but we no that but for Celtic thay think thay are great am looking forward for this semi final

5.) 13 Mar 2017 13:05:04
Somewhere the Loafy One is preaching to a bunch of wide-eyed 19 year olds in some clapped out old college PE course that passing the ball to death sideways is the way to go and they'll learn from it.

First class!

Just watched murty presser. the more I listen to him the more I like him. but that stv sport guy Ramon something ahhhhhh I hate him. he constantly tried get answers about rangers signing policy regarding murty input. murty kept telling him but he just kept digging.




12 Dec 2017 16:19:05
I'm sick to death of the mcinnes stuff but I'm going to give a last post on it
Right the bloody media have dragged mcinnes name through every paper the last 6 weeks at no point did rangers mention his name. so why are the media blaming us for that. when we never said we wanted him until we asked to speak to him. I never used to buy into the anti rangers stuff but now it's bloody obvious. they're not even hiding it anymore. rangers deserves stick for the statement but not stuff we never did.




09 Dec 2017 14:28:04
. Glasgow rangers used to be a top drawer run club. that statement was garbage. clueless and totally lacked class. the board keep saying we are a massive football club. well we should act like one because by releasing that crap makes us a laughing stock. all they had to say was we asked Aberdeen to speak to mcinnes but they said no so we will move on to try and get the best possible manager for rangers football club. but no not us. we come out with that crap. James trainer should be sacked. as a matter of fact I'm surprised he's still at ibrox.


1.) 09 Dec 2017 15:12:34
Totally agree. Jim Trainor is a joke letting that statement go out. Pathetic



09 Dec 2017 14:15:47
A win today is massive. for a start it would be gr8 to get rid of this 3 game hodoo. but more importantly it would put us back in second place on goal difference but it would put us only 4 points behind Celtic. so with Celtic playing hibs away you never know. if hibs give them a game anything can happen. but first things first we must win our game today.


1.) 09 Dec 2017 15:29:12
Totally agree Delboy. But I have to say i'm fearing the worst for today tbh.

2.) 09 Dec 2017 16:19:19
Bearmode91 it shows you how bad things really are when you fear the worst against Ross County who are 2nd bottom and lost their last 3.

3.) 09 Dec 2017 17:07:40
2-1 phew.

Johnnymac55 mate, we've not won 3 games in a row in dunkies (until today, get the flags oot) and have been beaten 2-0 by the mighty accies at Ibrox for the first time in 90 years or whatever. Forgive me for being cynical but as you say, it has been pretty bad for us recently, let's no kid on here.

4.) 10 Dec 2017 09:47:42
Bearmode, the only thing wrong at Rangers is the expectation that Rangers should be competing with Celtic. It forces the Board who are useless anyway into making the wrong decision. The gap is wide. It can't be closed totally in 2 or 3 seasons. Managers need time and maybe it will take 5 years to challenge depending on what Celtic do and how much Rangers invest.



07 Dec 2017 18:05:23
All the mcinnes haters will be happy now please give murty the job until the summer.


1.) 07 Dec 2017 18:11:17
Been told its cause rangers didn't want take his assistant so mcinness knocked it back

2.) 07 Dec 2017 18:13:21
Nobody hated DM, maybe they didn't want him as first choise as manager, well that's entirely different.

3.) 08 Dec 2017 02:33:29
wee del a bear
never to spoke to anyone at gers
spoke to his mrs and decided he didnae want pressure esp on hs family
he honest n I respect that n so do his pals superally n barry f disnae make him a bad person move on

He's not the right fit for rangers please believe me. btw that's nothing to do with him as a player. it's the type of person he is

What has Ashley got to do with anything. he doesn't even have any shares anymore. as for him coming back. pure nonsense. no chance our fans or board would let him back in the door. it's took us 5 yrs to get rid of him. he's not coming back under any circumstances

Maybe he did. but it's not about him being our next manager that's for sure

Is that a guess or have you got info on it. personally i don't know if I want mcinnes anymore. but if he gets the job I will back him 100% it's just strange we haven't made contact with them before now. surely if we wanted him we would have tried to get him before now. if we do make an offer for him after all this time why did we wait so long. I would love to know who else the board have looked at for the job

But will our board go for pulis. Tony is a very good and well respected manager down south. imo he would do a very good job at rangers but would he be willing to for a much lesser salary than he's used to. depending on what type of person he is. because I'm sure he's set for life anyway and it's not like he would earn peanuts but it's a great job just sitting empty for someone. just think the person has a chance to be a legend by stopping 10 in a row

I will always love kenny Miller. he's been a great servent for us. I also wish we signed big lafferty. we need winners something out squad lacks players who have won titles and cups our squad is majorly lacking in that department imo
