Kelly has had his photos done, should be announced soon.


1.) 04 Jun 2024 20:44:15
The excitement of this transfer is just too much for me to handle.

2.) 04 Jun 2024 21:04:11
Is Kelly a better keeper than McCrorie? More experienced, without a doubt, but technically?

3.) 04 Jun 2024 21:32:50
Dado a down grade from Mccrorie imo.

4.) 04 Jun 2024 22:17:04
It's not fair on McCrorie to keep him waiting. We have to let him go and make his own legacy and who knows he might come back one day.

5.) 04 Jun 2024 22:22:55
I agree John, Kelly is to small to be a commanding keeper he has been playing at his level he went to QPR and wasnt good enough for down there so if Butland gets injured he certainly won't be good enough for European comps.

6.) 04 Jun 2024 22:34:41
Not always a case of being better. He might be the beat we can get because mcrorie doesn't want to stay. Its not like we are selling him because we are bringing in Kelly. We are bringing in Kelly because he doesn't want to stay.

7.) 04 Jun 2024 22:36:50
Mccrorie needs to leave. Insert buy back clause. Kelly will do for no2.

8.) 04 Jun 2024 22:44:39
I think mccrorie better than Kelly as well.
I’d hope for a better no2.

9.) 04 Jun 2024 22:50:12
Why would McCrorie stay though? He’s not going to be no. 1 when Butland is here. Best for his career to move on and see how he copes as a no1. Hopefully, we put a buy back clause in case he is good enough down the line.

10.) 04 Jun 2024 22:54:44
McCrorie is definitely better than Kelly, actually disappointed for McCrorie.

11.) 05 Jun 2024 06:59:26
The problem is StevieG2, a better no.2 probably wouldn't want to come as he'd more than likely not want to be sitting on the bench with jack butland as our no.1 ?.

12.) 05 Jun 2024 07:40:40
He is an upgrade on Jon McLaughlin.

13.) 05 Jun 2024 12:33:05
Kelly has had some real clangers recently but I think flaps at crosses much less than McCrorie, if he's the number 1 if Butland is sold then I think it's a major worry .



24 May 2024 20:23:27
There we go Jefte confirmed by rangers 4 year deal. More on route.


1.) 24 May 2024 21:51:26
Do you think Cordoba will sign John?

2.) 24 May 2024 21:55:12
Yip John. Mofuken, Liam Kelly and Cordoba and interest in an aberdeen striker and hearts striker.

3.) 24 May 2024 21:55:13
John do you think that cortes will resign either on loan or permanent.

4.) 24 May 2024 21:57:09
Fair play John you said months ago we had agreed a deal ?.

5.) 24 May 2024 22:09:33
Any exciting name John? Or is it players we need to watch on YouTube?

6.) 24 May 2024 22:20:46
Kelly next you think John?

7.) 24 May 2024 22:27:07
Wish he could play tomorrow john.

8.) 24 May 2024 22:38:55
Gd gd one down more to come?.

9.) 24 May 2024 22:55:30
Next Kelly, Mofokeng, Cordoba, Benes and a striker from close to home (with players going the other way plus cash) .

10.) 25 May 2024 00:01:49
Time will tell whether he will be a good signing for us, nonetheless I hope it’s a busy summer and PC gets funds to spend on the players he wants. I’d also like to see a couple of youth players given a chance pre season none more than Archie Stevens. The young lad looks a serious talent and my fear is if he doesn’t get a sniff around the first team then he will be away down south, don’t want to see a repeat scenario of the billy Gilmour saga.

11.) 25 May 2024 00:20:59
To be fair the papers said we agreed a deal in January.

12.) 25 May 2024 06:54:56
Tbf so did john.

13.) 25 May 2024 07:25:15
If we got mirovski or shankland would be an incredible statement ? we need at least one of these guys up front next season.

14.) 25 May 2024 07:30:28
a player to the sheep plus cash where are rangers finding 5 mill for
a striker from aberdeen from oh throw in a reserve goalkeeper job done.

15.) 25 May 2024 07:32:43
White horse

You think it’s miovski and shankland?

16.) 25 May 2024 09:31:37
Lol got to love it when people play fantasy football in their head


Lol as if . who would play the wide roles miovski is a great finisher and would love him to sign but the fee Aberdeen will want I’d say no can get a couple decent players we could sign shankland and Cortes for price of miovski

We need experienced centre back and top quality central midfielder

Normally I’d say don’t sell your starters (dessers) upgrade and then dessers becomes backup but with Danilo there and dessers around 29 years old it might be tough to get a fee if we wait longer.

17.) 25 May 2024 09:33:28
True Tigerbread, really been on the cards for a while, didn't think he'll be first choice.

18.) 25 May 2024 10:39:18
Gofer, it's not fantasy, it's plain to see. These two guys score plenty of goals, so it's plain sight.

Yeah, they cost a lot, but we have spent millions already on dross. The money spent on Lammers could have bought either Miovski or Shanks. I'm not trying to bait or be cheeky but it's true.

Both are best strikers in Scotland so ? maybe it's fantasy, but I would take either. would be an incredible signing mate.

Season after season, we brought others for lots a money saying these guys are too expensive and it's cost us dearly.

19.) 25 May 2024 10:51:14
100% re cordoba and Kelly.

20.) 25 May 2024 10:53:37
Mofokeng will be in soon. He was first pick in front of Australia lad.

One Walter, Cortes will be at rangers next season.



22 May 2024 16:22:55
Any one picking up on a lb from chile playing in Argentina, galdames. Their media saying signed for us.


1.) 22 May 2024 17:02:55
In that case, Rodvan must be away as can’t see us signing 3 LBs. Couldn’t see any articles on Boelhy earlier - any links?

2.) 22 May 2024 17:21:19
Do you think that means that Norwich are truly hijacking Cordoba deal?

3.) 22 May 2024 17:50:22
Someone put his name on a few weeks ago, would like it if him and Jefté came in and we moved Yilmaz on. Nothing against him but he’s just not built for Scottish football.

4.) 22 May 2024 18:02:56
Sure someone gave that name recently. If we are going after 2 LBs I'm assuming that Yilmaz might be moving on also.

5.) 22 May 2024 18:11:09
Boy is playing in the Brazilian league John but can’t find anything with any links.

6.) 22 May 2024 18:28:15
I doubt we'd sign another lb, unless yilmaz getting sold . Is jefte no a lb?

7.) 22 May 2024 18:32:55
Is that the boy Thomas Galdames?
Would he be replacing Yilmaz? I'd be gutted to see the wee turk leave if that was the case.

8.) 22 May 2024 18:44:59
He plays for vasco da gama in brazil.

9.) 22 May 2024 19:31:24
Thomas galdames plays for Godoy Cruz in Argentina premier division according to transfermarket.

10.) 22 May 2024 20:19:38
Unless we are signing Jefte to be a left winger.

11.) 22 May 2024 22:14:20
We'd be crazy not to consider a good offer for yilmaz I like him but he's another we can't keep fit long enough so may need to move him on.

12.) 22 May 2024 23:18:01
Only one I can think of is Pablo Galdames but he's a midfielder.

13.) 22 May 2024 23:54:38
Name was reported on here last week. Be a weird one when reportedly signed jefte with ridvan still here as well.

14.) 23 May 2024 10:18:37
According to Salarysport. com his wages won't be an issue . Believe his contract expiress on Dec 31 so pre contract terms can be entered into in a matter of weeks. I think Phillipe Clemente has been handed a remit to vastly reduce the wage budget at Ibrox where he can. Can't see quality falling off a cliff either looks like an astute piece of business if they are looking at Thomas Galdames.



18 May 2024 09:12:09
Berkshire u picking up anything on rangers becoming part of Chelsea group,


1.) 18 May 2024 10:51:57
Sorry John part of Chelsea group! So are they buying us out? Can they own another club in uk.

2.) 18 May 2024 10:55:54
Gut feeling John, is this good or bad.

3.) 18 May 2024 11:03:57
John do you mean Chelsea FC group or The Chelsea Group. The Chelsea Group are a group of companies in various fields worldwide.

4.) 18 May 2024 11:06:56
One Walter it’s allowed hibs run by Bournemouth, Dundee about to link with epl.

Tjbb imo a disaster, we would be a puppet on a string.

5.) 18 May 2024 11:09:02
If this was to go ahead it would probably have to be a minority share in the club, otherwise any chance of us ever playing in Europe again is gone. Similar to the city group this season with Man City and Girona.

Overall would not be a fan of this anyhow, all up for more investment but don’t like the idea of us being part of these groups that serve to feed one club.

6.) 18 May 2024 11:28:50
John are you meaning in the same sense that Girona are part of city etc?

If so then that's a disaster as we are a massive club and should not be feeder to a club like Chelsea, unless we are allowed to operate independently and just receive financial backing. Even then still a disaster.

7.) 18 May 2024 11:52:55
We should be fully independent, I really hope there is nothing too this. Investment is great but I'd rather struggle for another 10 years than be a puppet to another club.

8.) 18 May 2024 11:58:37
Might turn out to be a right kick in the Sandy Shaws.

9.) 18 May 2024 12:24:22
Anything that risks out participation in Europe will never happen, if it's a "friendship" where we get opportunity to maybe get a high quality loan player and they have first choice of any of our players for sale and some investment then maybe, Interested to see what that means.

10.) 18 May 2024 12:39:58
30% they can own of the club that’s what the city group need to get down to with grooms so they can compete in Europe.

11.) 18 May 2024 13:31:14
See tbh Scotland is miles behind now wouldn’t be the worst idea.

12.) 18 May 2024 14:08:17
That is an insult to our club and the fans. i'd be angry with that.

13.) 18 May 2024 14:34:47
Nothing on the Chelsea Group, John. I believe that Clearlake Capital, Pamplona Capital Management, (Halstead), and John Bennett's previous Group know each other through their trading operations and Gibson may have links from the past from California, (Santa Monica / San Francisco. That is where rumours might have started.
I'm still hearing that Gibson interested in further investment / Board seat. (I don't believe that Hong Kong Politics would detract from this.
Names from Scotland and SA (whisky link), still rumoured to be interest in acquiring shares.
Also heard Dublin links but this could be through the various Capital management operations of above Companies.

14.) 18 May 2024 15:05:19
Girona not grooms.

15.) 18 May 2024 15:28:26
Cheers Berkshire, seems to be something stirring,

I mean Chelsea fc,

16.) 18 May 2024 16:43:51
Look at Troyes being part of the city group. An absolute DISASTER.

17.) 18 May 2024 17:15:56
Borna you can flip it and say look at girona tho.

18.) 18 May 2024 18:51:28
Something needs to change, that is for sure, but nothing changes until something changes.

19.) 18 May 2024 19:32:47
I'm not against anything different these days. We are currently going nowhere fast.



15 May 2024 18:01:21
Appears Watson and Armstrong have agreed new deals at Kilmarnock.


1.) 15 May 2024 18:17:27
Maybe not… it was in the paper to day that

Danny Armstrong insists he’s in no rush to sign a new deal at Kilmarnock – but admits he loves the club.

2.) 15 May 2024 18:21:45
Just to push there price up?

3.) 15 May 2024 18:22:36
Cool Andy,

4.) 15 May 2024 18:39:14
John, they're probably both going to hibs with derek mcinnes mate ?.

5.) 15 May 2024 18:41:19
Could well be correct Paul,

6.) 15 May 2024 18:43:42
Mcinnes at hibs sws?

7.) 15 May 2024 18:48:29
Surely McIness isn’t going to that basket case of a club SWS?

8.) 15 May 2024 19:36:50
Imagine McInnes getting told what to do by malky McKay. Should be the other way around.

9.) 15 May 2024 20:27:49
My star the bookie’s favourite.

10.) 15 May 2024 21:44:04
McInnes not going to hibs. Doing a great job where he is.

11.) 15 May 2024 22:10:00
McInnes? well his plastic pitch they got oot the Barras didn't help much tonight, absolute shambles of a side and a performance . Hibs don't want a monster upfront from English lower league benches to just hoof it to and hope for the best, or long throw ins either.

12.) 15 May 2024 23:24:00
Cairn hill I think hibs would rather be in the position of Kilmarnock right now with mcinnies at the helm.

13.) 16 May 2024 01:24:57
McInnes too good for Hibs, if he’s going anywhere it’s english championship.

14.) 16 May 2024 17:00:33
I can't see Derek going to them as long as McKay is there above him.

15.) 16 May 2024 20:17:29
If McInnes gets a decent budget at hibs I think within 2 seasons they will be finishing top 4 each season.

Confirmed Bisgrove moves on, that will keep many happy.


1.) 30 May 2024 17:52:44
John, i honestly think bisgrove leaving rangers is a big loss to us ?.

2.) 30 May 2024 17:57:09
Money man going to where the money is . Best of luck to him he was good for rangers .

3.) 30 May 2024 18:04:00
Walter absolutely, but that is not the view of many, after MyGers and Australia in particular.

4.) 30 May 2024 21:20:08
John. Here’s a thought with all the Saudi money pumped into boxing and golf etc, who’s to say he wouldn’t try and get an old firm game over there? I know this would be a massively unpopular thought but personally I wouldn’t be for it but commercially would be massive. Before I take pelters, again it’s not for me.

5.) 30 May 2024 23:01:20
Rfc55loyal - Saudi games attract crowds of a few thousand, plus they have hardly heard of Rangers and Celtic over there. Manchester United and Liverpool maybe, but Rangers and Celtic I doubt it somehow.



29 May 2024 16:00:47
Walter obe, I lost your post reply to me when I said Robertson had met up with players we trying to recruit. I'm well aware Stuart Roberson left rangers.

I refer to our Director / Head of Football Operations Creag Robertson.


1.) 29 May 2024 17:14:47
I beg your pardon then john. fair doos mate and my mistake ?.

2.) 29 May 2024 18:01:09
Not an issue Walter, Creag name is not in the media often.

3.) 29 May 2024 18:22:21
Coops, I expected better from you mate ?.



28 May 2024 16:53:38
Good to see Curtis grant smith getting extended deals. Good prospects.


1.) 28 May 2024 18:25:41
Brilliant mate.

2.) 28 May 2024 18:33:20
Brilliant news mate. Signed a wee while ago just getting announced now.

3.) 29 May 2024 15:44:34
Livi I believe we are about to give Lovelace a three year deal, similar salary to Lowry / ishaka.



25 May 2024 22:46:09
What's peoples view on pc and cantwell spat at end of game, I think that ends it for cantwell.


1.) 25 May 2024 23:54:45
Cantwell is a wee fud who thinks he's a player. Get rid asap.

2.) 25 May 2024 23:56:25
Think he was at end anyway seems pc never got on with him

To be fair to Cantwell don’t think he should have been subbed off as soon as matondo and Wright came on for silva and Cantwell I thought we were doomed

Pc uncharacteristically got subs wrong today except sima as dessers was awful did not press or show desire to win anything dessers just goes with the flow and had no real passion this is why he will fail

That and always taking too many touches should have first timed the the shot from the Cantwell cross.

3.) 26 May 2024 00:01:29
If I’m honest I just don’t think he does enough, puts in a 30 minute showing occasionally but for the most part is lightweight., I don’t think he would be missed. TBF that applies to anyone in the first team.

4.) 26 May 2024 00:08:17
The guy has loads of talent but fails to turn up for games. I do believe he is like the way Silva is and needs the better talent to play off of. Attitude whys he doesn't take any notice of authority and I feel the way it's heading is on borrowed time. I always remember the way he explained his admiration for MB and his little coffee dates with him.

5.) 26 May 2024 00:22:03
100%, gone.

6.) 26 May 2024 00:26:59
Tbh John I thought taking off Cantwell was a mistake. At times PC substitutions baffle me. I know he has inherited Beales duds but he has also brought in a dud in silva and the jury is still out on diomande. The difference today was they signed a goal scorer in January and we signed an expensive winger/ diver. PC has had a few cracks at them now and failed every time. For me Cantwell should have stayed on the pitch as he was our only natural CAM.

7.) 26 May 2024 00:34:40
Yes agreed, no coming back, Cantwell imo something is a bit different, egotistical for one. He is not suited to Rangers and should be sold.

8.) 26 May 2024 01:25:58
Cantwell has always annoyed me. There's a player there but his heads too full of rubbish. I'd like to us get some money for him in the summer.

9.) 26 May 2024 01:41:14
I think if we had more with the desire Cantwell shows then we’d be fine.
The squad is badly assembled, the board a shambles in a footballing sense and Clements last 6 weeks are horrendous.
If he loses the first OF game next season then he’ll struggle to hang on. I have serious doubts!

10.) 26 May 2024 06:00:17
Agree with some. he's gone. looks like his attitude is doing more talking than his talent.

11.) 26 May 2024 07:06:29
I think cantwell if nor subbed would have got a second yellow.

12.) 26 May 2024 07:51:11
I think Cantwell has ability no doubt but maybe he gets too involved in other things that he shouldn’t. Maybe looses focus at times. Honestly get impression he gets under pc skin.

13.) 26 May 2024 08:49:52
Cantwell was heading for a red card. Clement removed him before we went to 10 men.

14.) 26 May 2024 10:03:00
Said it many times, he'll leave Rangers for the same reason he left Norwich and that's nothing to do with talent.

He's certainly a talented footballer, though he doesn't do enough with it for me, but he just doesn't have it between the ears. Never has had and at 26 he no longer has the excuse of being a young player who needs to grow up. He should be coming into his prime, but his mindset is going to see him a League 1, bottom end Championship player in England or moving somewhere like Turkey.

I've been saying since January I would sell him if any decent offer came along. I just don't like him. The way he carries himself, his "all about me" attitude and his lack of performance to back it up. His numbers are worse than Hagi. I'm not advocating for Hagi, I think we need better, but at least Ianis is about the team, not himself and is likeable for the output we get.

15.) 26 May 2024 10:14:32
I agree if he hadnt been subbed he'd have picked up a second yellow and we would have been down to ten you could see he had lost the plot.

16.) 26 May 2024 10:16:54
No big loss for us. far too inconsistent.

17.) 26 May 2024 10:24:17
He will be away and then he posted again on social media another ridiculous post about not talking to him ? guy is an idiot.



22 May 2024 12:17:54
Our scouting recruitment very interesting

Kelly, scouted by Beale
Cordoba scouted by Gio
Cortes scouted by Gio
Diomande scouted by Gio, Cameron Campbell recommended him
Dion Sanderson scouted by Beale
Harry Souttar scouted by Beale
Bachman scouted by Beale

Jeffte kloppen
Manofeking kloppen.


1.) 22 May 2024 12:54:09
John I honestly thought you were wrong at the time but I now think we should of given gio more time and money to build a team instead of getting mb in.

2.) 22 May 2024 13:10:47
Good profile of players there John. And the potential to make a fortune off the back of a few if they perform to their full potential. IMO Diomande will be a 20mil+ sale in a couple of years.

3.) 22 May 2024 13:33:16
So who’s calling the shots John?

4.) 22 May 2024 14:06:35
Agree rfc.

5.) 22 May 2024 14:07:23
Rfc22 gios time. was up. Was horrendous in the league.

6.) 22 May 2024 14:37:40
Don’t really care who spots the talent as long as it gets spotted . We live in a very connected world, wherever anyone shows a glimpse of promise the football grapevine will be on it in a flash. Gone are the days when scouts were the sole voice when it comes to talent, very few unknowns out there now.

7.) 22 May 2024 15:49:44
My point sima is players r scouted over a period of time,

I don’t overly care who we sign as long as the manager gets a tune.

Kloppen first signing was silva.

8.) 22 May 2024 16:21:39
20+ for dio Jesus Christ he has had a few good games and a few poor games but to come up with that valuation is mental.

9.) 22 May 2024 16:51:15
Storm last summer we were getting 20 million for cifuentes raskin cantwell with cantwell being player of the year

Rangers do not have a player that is worth more than 10million to anyone.

10.) 22 May 2024 17:04:25
Still early doors for diomande but think over all he's been pretty poor.

11.) 22 May 2024 17:29:29
Would say butland worth over 10 personally John but that's it.

12.) 22 May 2024 18:23:47
Correct John ?? few on here need a reality check mate.
