I don't know the terms of Coulibalys loan but I hope we have an ootion to buy that we have already agreed. He is some player and his value will be going up with every performance. He reminds me of Kante, not saying he is as good but he covers every blade of grass and is ferocious in the tackle. His all round attitude is spot on and exactly the type of player we needed.


1.) 10 Aug 2018 05:09:19
As soon as he signed I knew he was going to be good pick up. I am sure he was linked with some pretty big clubs a few years back when he was first coming through. He could do a lot worse than sign for Rangers permanently should his loan be successful then move onto the PL in a similar way to Wanyama.

2.) 10 Aug 2018 08:53:28
I recall many on here having a pop cause he was an unknown loan player. Silenced and not a peep out them now 😂😂.

3.) 10 Aug 2018 09:36:03
People actually thought that the amount of loans were embarrassing🙃, better than having windass and holt etc in the team. Onwards and upwards👍.

4.) 10 Aug 2018 10:23:12
I’m Sure PSG we’re interested in him 2/ 3 seasons ago fantastic player from the few games I’ve seen him play for us, does the dirty work.

5.) 10 Aug 2018 15:44:13
Brilliant performance from him last night, even when it looked like a man had passed him he somehow managed to get a tackle in and win the ball so I see the similarities to kante. Really good performance last night just hope we can produce that regularly.

6.) 10 Aug 2018 22:47:36
Him jack and Arfield will be just awsome together wow.



02 Aug 2018 22:36:20
Morelos was absolute class tonight. His overall forward play and work rate was sensational. He created 5 chances for us by holding the ball in and laying it off. Last year he would have tried to have gone himself but his teamwork was brilliant tonight. He is clearly learning under Gerrard.

Well played El Buffalo.


1.) 02 Aug 2018 23:29:58
What game were you watching.

2.) 02 Aug 2018 23:44:39
Really pleased with most of our play tonight. Some very good performances by our players. Thought allan McGregor, connor goldson, nikola katic were superb but my man of the match was ryan jack, who was simply outstanding tonight! Terrific midfield performance from jack! He was immense in the challenge, done the defensive midfield work superbly, what a superb pass for morelos in the first half, in particular! Jack broke play and started play for us terrifically well! A midfield masterclass imo from jack!

3.) 03 Aug 2018 00:10:53
I’ve always thought he was a team player! Wouldn’t look too much into his sultry look!

4.) 03 Aug 2018 02:20:15
He wasn't as good as he was in the first leg, but he was still very good.

5.) 03 Aug 2018 06:33:27
you would've been as well as copying and pasting SG's post match interview coops.

6.) 03 Aug 2018 06:40:10
Totally agree with most of the comments lads, while we lacked the cutting edge again last night we more than made up for it in workrate to a man. Allan McGregor will prove to be our best signing I feel, we are only 4 competitive games in and he has countless match changing stops on record. How often would we have folded in the last 3 seasons had any one of them went in. Wee mention for Coulibaly also whose engine is unbelievable up and down all night, he will just get better and better. Every man on the pitch should be proud of their performance last night and the goal at the end was so cruel on them, that performance deserved the win and the clean sheet.

On a side note, that’s the strongest our bench has looked in years and how refreshing it is that we could bring in 3 or 4 for Sunday to freshen it up! 3pts on Sunday now, LETSGO!

7.) 03 Aug 2018 08:15:27
Negri pal, i did also agree with everything gerrard said regarding his post match interview. But we all said travelling home in the car, that jack was absolutely outstanding and that was before hearing our manager's post match interview! You either believe me or not mate, that's up to you. It was pretty easy to see how good ryan jack played against osijek!

8.) 03 Aug 2018 08:23:15
Wee bear
The bench did look strong from an attacking point of view.
However what would have happened if one of the CH had got injured or sent off, there was no cover on the bench
To me it highlighted the need for a new CH to be brought in.
Anyway what a performance from Ryan Jack he was immense.
In Stevie we trust #lets go.

9.) 03 Aug 2018 10:51:15
Good to get through last night but think ejiera is to lightweight and tries to be to fancy for Scottish football, Tavernier is no defender and no captain, we need a new left back and move Flanagan to the right and make goldston captain.

10.) 03 Aug 2018 10:55:53
personally, I think, This is a kid who missed six months at the back end of last season. I am delighted with Ryan's performance,

we've got a good type on my hands there. He's a player who cares, who wants to win and is prepared to go out and do exactly what you've asked of him.

I think he made one minor mistake during 90 minutes in a big football match. As a midfielder, I was jealous of Ryan's performance tonight.

11.) 03 Aug 2018 12:11:48
Negri, the coop made a point ( a good one at that ) and you come railroading in to bring him down, its a rumour site not a "lets get one up on any one ir thing that we can site" sick of people having a go at each other here, time to stick together not rip each other apart.

12.) 03 Aug 2018 12:32:42
I think What is looks like a great player but would benefit greatly by trying to keep things a bit simpler.

13.) 03 Aug 2018 20:37:21
I'd like to mention candieas performance last night. What a difference having him vs Murphy down the right. His work rate helped nullify their obvious threat from their left, and he helped tav out, as he should. Tav, as a result had a great game too, as did they all to varying degrees.

I think Jack just shaded motm for me, what a ball through for morelos. Onwards and upwards. Let's go.



16 Jul 2018 08:26:10
Apparently as many as 4 Rangers players will leave the club this week. Rangers want to sell but loans are looking more likely due to the wages these players are on and the clubs interested won't match them.

The guy that told me this used to be involved at Rangers a while ago and claims to still have sources🤔

Players to go won't come as much surprise:


Dont know about anyone else but I'd be happy if we got £2m combined. £1.5m for Fod and £500k combined for the rest.

All 4 are at good ages and really should be sellable assets but it shows how poor our recruitment has been over the last few years. Fods the exception to that though as we will profit from selling him.


1.) 16 Jul 2018 09:20:37
i reckon we'd get a good bit more, 1.5 for Fod, 500k for halliday, 400k hodson and 400k forrester, I'd be happy with that

2.) 16 Jul 2018 09:42:06
The point you make about the wages does not surprise me in the slightest.

Some of our players are shockingly overpaid.

3.) 16 Jul 2018 10:24:15
Surely Herrera also on his way?

4.) 16 Jul 2018 14:16:33
i forgot cardoso also, we must be onto a not bad sum of money for these boys

5.) 16 Jul 2018 16:00:31
Very little interest in Herrera currently. He may be on teams list of players but he isn't very high on those lists.

6.) 16 Jul 2018 16:56:58
I completely take back what I said. Out of the blue that one.

7.) 16 Jul 2018 17:16:35
Jmfc110, 500k for haiiliday? and 400k For Hodson? . madness lmao we’d be lucky if we got anything for them both 100k players each same with Forrest who I’d happily let go on a free if it meant getting him off the wage bill.

8.) 16 Jul 2018 17:19:16
Herrera away back to Mexico on loan

9.) 16 Jul 2018 17:27:06
our recruitments been so poor and our wages so high for duff players that we can't get rid of them. let's hope lessons can be learnt there-when we eventually do get shot, we were lucky to get rid of pena, for a while, albeit that might still be back to haunt us at a later date. i think we need a quality central defender and 2 more quality front men

10.) 16 Jul 2018 17:35:38
Why the hell is foderingham the goalie getting punted over alnwick totally the wrong way round

11.) 16 Jul 2018 18:35:40
No one said He's being punted but he does seem to be down in Peking order as McGregor and alnwick rated better options

12.) 16 Jul 2018 18:39:29
Something happened after a Celtic game. Was not injured dropped.
Heard couple of stories but nothing with substance

13.) 16 Jul 2018 23:47:28
lol Halliday and Hodson will be loaned or have contracts paid off, clubs know we want rid and I’d be shocked if any cash comes in for them. Forrester will be released. Fod should go for around 1M but prob be around the 800k figure. From what I’ve been told a Wallace and Lafferty swap is still being discussed but Hearts want cash and Wallace lol

14.) 17 Jul 2018 07:27:50
Guys i'm i rite in sayin that we knocked back 2.75 million for fod not to long ago? We should not be accepting anythn less than 2.5 for him now that he's down the pecking order. It doesn't make him anythn less as a good shot stopper although i must admit i covered my eyes when he had the ball at his feet

15.) 17 Jul 2018 09:29:58
Scotty 123,i said that on here also,
regarding a wallace plus money, for Lafferty swap deal, around 2 weeks ago now! So i heard the exact same as you mate, regarding wallace and lafferty!



30 Dec 2017 09:34:20
Ive got family out in Australia and I've been told that there are rumours out there that we are looking at a young winger called Joe Champness from Newcastle Jets. I've googled this guy but can't find much out about him and certainly can't find any articles in the press linking him to us. Anyone know this guy? My knowledge of Australian football is iffy at best.




05 Dec 2017 23:24:39
Im not sure what to make about the approach for McInnes. If the compensation is close to the 800k to 1m being quoted i think that money could be better used elsewhere. I just don't think he is worth that outlay.

On the matter of who will be his assistant it looks likely that his long term assistant Tony Docherty will follow him to us. This guy is not good enough. It is nothing to do with who he supported growing up. I have first hand experience of Tony Docherty and he is useless as a coach. He was in the right place at the right time all the way through his coaching career. I was on the YTS at Falkirk for a couple of years and he basically came in and took credit for a great youth set up that had been in place for a few years prior to him arriving.

Wilkins or Murty as assistant for me although I also hear good things about JJ so why not keep him.


1.) 06 Dec 2017 02:04:33
Completely agree. I really hope JJ gets kept on in some capacity since he’s shown he has an eye for a player as well.

2.) 06 Dec 2017 08:29:32
It's a big No from me to the pair of them, especially Docherty. I too have come across this person and his 'coaching' skills I've witnessed first hand. He's an imposter who has a pal that keeps him in work - apart from the other, obvious reason that he despises Rangers.

3.) 06 Dec 2017 11:36:37
No idea about Docherty guys but if he is such an imposter do we really want a manager who puts such trust in him?

Yesterday was really impressive from every player that was involved. I am really optimistic about the season ahead.

I'm a big fan of Candeias. It's mainly because of his work rate that I like him. He covers a lot for Tav when he pushes forward but yesterday we seen composure from him in the final third which we haven't always seen. As much as a fan of Candy that I am I can see why his place is under threat from Ojo. Or maybe it isn't under threat, it's already gone to Ojo. Ojo has impressed me with his work rate too. His desire to fight for every ball and get stuck in for the team have been evident in what we've seen so far. he's young and hungry to impress and the team will be better when he plays. He appears to have the correct attitude and I think he will play himself into a big move down south. If we benefit the way we did with Kent last year for one season then we've got to be happy with that.

All incoming transfers look the part and the fans are buzzing to get the season underway. The scouting and transfer guys along with Gerrard obviously have to be given a lot of credit. We've brought 8 good players in for less than 5 million. That's great business. If we were to put all 8 up for sale right now we'd probably get over 20 million plus. Not that we should do that but it shows the forward thinking that has been applied. This is where Celtic have out thought us in years gone by so I'm delighted we are signing players who's value instantly increases the minute they sign.

Sorry about the ramble lads, all positive stuff though. C'mon the gers💪.


1.) 15 Jul 2019 14:34:13
Guys this is marrsellie team were well beaten by an English league two
The real test are, yet to come.



14 May 2019 22:27:46
Not a rumour lads, just an opinion. I've just seen on Sky Sports that Reece Oxford from West Ham is on his way to the Bundesliga to sign for Augsburg for 3 million quid. This is exactly the type of player we should be looking at. 3 million for a 20 year old who has masses of improvement still to come and a potential huge profit in the future. I know the Bundesliga is more attractive than the SPL but it's worth a try surely. Who knows, maybe we did enquire.


1.) 15 May 2019 08:23:46
We wouldn’t afford his wages that would be the problem I would have thought.

2.) 15 May 2019 09:42:17
GANNNET, correct. It might be a 3 million transfer fee but his wages will substantially more than we could afford.



09 Aug 2018 09:56:21
Seen a couple of posts online that Blackburn are interested in Wes. Someone on here had said earlier that Alnwick was also on his way out on loan. Are we comfortable with McCrorie as no2? I am, I've watched him quite a lot and think he has real potential.




08 Aug 2018 11:14:38
No less than 5m for Tav, 2m for John 1m for Wes and i'd be relatively happy with that. If we then get into Europa League group stages with a minimum 5m in income our net spend just taking those income streams into account would be looking really positive. Makes me think that SG still has something special up his sleeve in the transfer market. I don't know how much I believe about the mysterious benefactor. I don't care if its true or not but if someone wants to back us financially and remain anonymous then just let them batter on.


1.) 08 Aug 2018 16:58:31
Wes is worth more than 1 Million ALL DAY LONG.

2.) 08 Aug 2018 21:19:12
LDM17 Agree 100%, Wes is worth a lot more than 1 million although he's suspect in certain situations he's been a good servant to our club and a good keeper, 1 million or less is a piss take.



29 May 2018 21:31:58
I just noticed that Brighton have had a 2million pound offer turned down for Paddy Mcnair of Sunderland. I just googled Mcnair and was shocked that he is still only 23. I think if we could get him in for 2.5m then it might be a decent bit of business. he's always been decent when I've seen him play.



1.) 30 May 2018 06:17:58
No thanks

2.) 30 May 2018 08:05:03
I thought the same when I seen this also. A right back who can defend and would push tav to be a winger. Also he is a massive rangers fan

3.) 30 May 2018 09:38:13
Don't fancy McNair, Brighton have bid for a couple of CB's this week, think Goldson is more or less a certainty at this stage, apparently he's to be confirmed once the window opens.

Need to wait and see.

4.) 30 May 2018 10:00:50
If paddy mcnair is good enough for Brighton in the epl he's certainly good enough for us. Good shout op

5.) 30 May 2018 11:30:34
Sunderland fans rave about mcnair

6.) 30 May 2018 15:49:16
Would be a great signing for us. Versatile player, his education at Man Utd can only be a good thing along with being a Rangers fan, I could see him as future captain material.

Sorry to be cynical lads but i don't believe that this actually happened. I think this could well be us leaking this story conveniently to try and draw out any genuine bids. With the Chinese window closing earlier than ours its convenientfor us to release this story so that anyone who does want to buy Morelos bid today to give us time to replace him.

I wouldn't sell now. Keep him for another year, let him bang another 30 goals in and have him well warned to screw the nut and we'll sell him for 20mill next summer.

Is Declan John a loan or is he going to Swansea permanently? If its permanent how much should we be looking for? IMO minimum of 2m with sell on of 20%. Probably being ambitious though. Thoughts?

It would be great if we could loan a 25m rated player. No chance!

Thats brilliant. Brightened up my day😂😂😂

Liverpool turned down a reported 25m bid for him from Spurs in January and all of a sudden we have the financial clout to sign him👏👏👏

Agreed G Unit. We need to look at buying this guy outright from the start or have an option to buy. He seems to fit the profile of someone we could develop further and sell at a profit in 2 or 3 years. I don't see the point in developing other teams talent and then they benefit.

I have to agree Tommy. Katic was outstanding last night. I think he is our best centre back right now. Ok, I've not seen Helander enough yet but Katic is outstanding at both ends of the pitch. I can't help thinking that he will be the one to drop out once Helander is fit enough to start though. I hope not but I can't see us spending that money on Helander for him to warm the bench.

Last night the whole team was good. It backs up what Gerrard said pre match about being able to play better against better teams as they don't just box in. Most of the games in the league we will be playing against teams that will sit in so we need to find a way to break these teams down. Jones looked great last night in spells but needs the space to run into and he won't get that in SPL.

Yeah, it is early days but there are a couple of things we can't deny. I like Ojo but he always wants to cut in from the right giving us no crosses into the box. Arfield and Aribo are gret on the ball but are not wingers. These guys just don't provide the service for whoever plays up front. I can't remember a good chance for Defoe🤷‍♂️

We have strengthened Centre back, stayed the same in the midfield, weakened on the wings and stayed the same up front. Our weakness on the wi gs is apparent event at this early stage. Jones, Arfield, Murphy, none of these players are as effective as Kent. Ojo replacing Candeias? I posted a couple of weeks ago about Ojos willingness to track back like Candeias but he doesn't look as effective going forward🤷‍♂️

We have a chance at 55 lads but that tonight ( regardless of whether we progressed or not) was not good. We should be using tonight as momentum going into Sunday and we were rank rotten. that's a fact, not an opinion🤷‍♂️

Massive improvement needed!

In Stevie G I trust, however I will go on a bit of a rant.

In every game this season we have played with a high press, today we were happy to concede possession. When we lost the ball we retreated into our own half and allowed them the ball. i'm no master tactician but that was poor.

Tavernier had a nightmare! . Tav is only decent when he plays with Candeias. Candeias covers well for Tavs defensive frailties.

For the last 10-15 old firms Scott Brown is given time on the ball to dictate the play, why are we not learning our lesson?

Why wait so long to make a change?

Rant over! We are improving and we will be close, just very frustrating!

I really like Cardoso. I agree with you that he needs to become more physical. I think there is definitely a player there and would be happy to see him get his chance. It seems though that he is way down the pecking order. Even if Wilson goes he would have Martin, Bates and potentially Alves ahead of him.
