Any more on why Goldson didn't travel anyone?


1.) 30 Sep 2021 21:35:47
Picked up a knock and 50/ 50 for hibs game.



14 Jul 2021 12:13:27
Second time I've been told that we will announce a signing next week to coincide with the Real Madrid game and hopefully whoever it is will play in that game. No names given just that it's a player we are paying quite a bit for. Anyone any ideas or heard similar?


1.) 14 Jul 2021 13:15:41
Veerman potentially.

2.) 14 Jul 2021 13:18:09
Only name I’m hearts a definitely is Santiago Moreno.

3.) 14 Jul 2021 13:26:27

4.) 14 Jul 2021 13:48:04
Only way we are 'paying' a fee for anyone is if Alf is away.

5.) 14 Jul 2021 13:57:13
There is no signing next week there won't be another until if we get to CL or sell a player.

6.) 14 Jul 2021 13:57:36
Veerman would be the one I would prefer think that guys got a huge future ahead of him.

7.) 14 Jul 2021 14:07:36
Why so negative Bar72 and Bluebear?

Do you not listen to the board or just not believe them?

8.) 14 Jul 2021 14:18:25
DK19 cause it's the truth no one will sign next week or play in real game.

9.) 14 Jul 2021 14:21:17
The board have also never said they are signing anyone else next week Gerrard never mentioned anything either no one will come in unless a player leaves for millions you just want to believe but it's not happening.

10.) 14 Jul 2021 14:25:27
And if there is blue bear your gona look a fool. the good thing about gers is they keep cards close to there chest so to come out and say there WONT be any new signing next week the truth is you haven't got a clue.

11.) 14 Jul 2021 14:39:47
Veerman and Moreno would do just lovely🤣 We can only keep our fingers crossed.

12.) 14 Jul 2021 14:42:49
Sorry all you lads who really want Veerman, however I have it on good authority that he will be at Verona.

13.) 14 Jul 2021 14:46:15
Wouldn't want to be going on a night out with those two!

14.) 14 Jul 2021 15:15:24
Moc if guy coming from outside uk would need to isolate.

15.) 14 Jul 2021 15:31:01
Davie Douglas no a do have a clue am not deluded i highly doubt anyone is signing next week.

16.) 14 Jul 2021 15:48:00
Well if you do have a clue you must be the only person out with gers that knows this then as keep there cards close to there chest. time will tell.

17.) 14 Jul 2021 15:59:15
Hope its Lewis Ferguson.

18.) 14 Jul 2021 16:09:45
Whether we like it or not we ain't signing someone like Veerman unless someone goes.
This was stated last year that we can't continue to pay transfer fees without player sales.
If we sell Kamara then I'd believe we would replace him with someone like veerman bit we ain't spunking £6/ £7 million without a player going out. that's just a fact.

19.) 14 Jul 2021 16:22:42
Did someone not do an interview and say that we don't need to sell? We are in a good place.

20.) 14 Jul 2021 16:27:04
Buz Verrmans representatives have stated he wants to leave Heerenveen for a champions league club, so makes me question a Verona link, have heard like others Atalanta were interested though.

21.) 14 Jul 2021 17:01:03
Reading on line we have agreed to sell kamara and Morelos for a total up front fee off 14 million. Surely not.

22.) 14 Jul 2021 17:56:03
I certainly hope not john
If so something way wrong.

23.) 14 Jul 2021 18:08:36
I agree stigno, but u and I may have it wrong, others say Morelos only worth 8 million.

24.) 14 Jul 2021 18:20:50
Blue bear and bar 72 has spoken no point in anyone posting any rumours as those 2 no it all.

25.) 14 Jul 2021 18:59:03
If we spend, I will be the first to come on here and say I was wrong.
Just can't see it, we need to balance the books and that is something the board and Dave King HAVEsaid.

26.) 14 Jul 2021 21:21:03
Quite a few of you seem to be panicking over price tags! All paper talk!

I’m sure there is interest but not the values being touted.

Can’t see Kamara going to Hammers with Czech lad there saying he’s a liar.

And Morelos news is boring now.

SG said one on the way very soon ( Lundstrum was the best day ) and another quite a bit down the line in talks ( for me that Moreno from what I’m hearing )

Pretty sure fringe will be out one way or another.
Fridge loan/ sale
Barker (? )
Middleton loan
Arfield perhaps.

27.) 14 Jul 2021 21:36:27
John, was the article you read about selling Morelos and Kamara after £14m update? The update is that the Athletic reported Rangers had a £14m shortfall to plug before heading into this season. Don’t think it means selling the players for £14m. Title of the article is misleading.

28.) 14 Jul 2021 21:39:54
14m combined john? I just don't see that pal. Prob close what I'd value them at each. I think 12 to 15m each for 2 players who cost us 1m combined would be cracking business.

29.) 14 Jul 2021 21:49:13
No it was not them. Fruit. Said we wanted 8 for alf. 6 for kamara, stated that was rangers price tags, which I don’t believe
If it was me I’d want 14 and 10 with sell on.

30.) 14 Jul 2021 22:03:20
BAR72 we also need to stay competitive and qualify for champions league group stage. It's true we will sell to do that but it would be madness not to mention bad business to allow 2 of our biggest assets to go for half of what they are worth. Both could go but from what I know Gerrard won't allow the players to go for pennies. He is actively trying to block Morelos leaving as he thinks he could be the difference when qualifying for group stage.



16 Feb 2021 16:24:23
The latest rumour is that the internal investigation involves Greg Stewart. Not because he was at this party but because there are pictures of a WhatsApp group he is in and he is confirming to his friends that Bassey and Patterson are the culprits. Apparently SG is furious that he has been communicating this to people outwith the club.

I've seen the messages and I'm not convinced it's Greg Stewart. It could be any eejit that's changed a contact in his phone to the name Greg Stewart so it looks like he's getting inside info and acting like Billy Big baws.


1.) 16 Feb 2021 20:25:05
Greg Stewart deal up in summer so he won’t care what happens to him to be honest.



20 Dec 2020 16:50:26
Been told about an hour ago that Jon Mclaughlin has been spotted out at Blairdrummond Safari Park with his family. He lives in East Dunbartonshire so this would be travelling outwith his own area therefore a breach of C.V. rules. If true and he attends training then we are in trouble. Also, if true I must say, what a dafty. I hope its not true obviously.


1.) 20 Dec 2020 17:35:46
One way getting transferred if u want that.

2.) 20 Dec 2020 17:45:29
I hope someone from the club is aware of the rumour and can get the truth before he attends training tomorrow.

3.) 20 Dec 2020 18:02:40

4.) 20 Dec 2020 18:08:01
Are both areas not Level 3?

If so I think it could be classed as informal outdoor exercise which is permitted.

5.) 20 Dec 2020 18:10:52
Who told you this? ? ?

6.) 20 Dec 2020 19:19:39
a bloke called roger pipedream.

7.) 20 Dec 2020 19:53:44
DK19, i'm not sure about that pal. If you are in a level 3 area you haven't to travel out that area without good reason.

No pipedream truebluesotrue. He lives in the same village as I do and he was spotted at Blairdrummond by another villager and the news has spread about the place. i'm not saying its true, i'm only passing on what I've been told and also hoping it's not true or that he gets prevented from attending training if it is.

8.) 20 Dec 2020 22:06:24
Not sure what the other villager does MOC, but l take it he/ she was not breaking C.V. rules by being at Blairdrummond to spot him?

9.) 21 Dec 2020 08:31:49
Exactly what I said Pacific. They obviously were.

10.) 21 Dec 2020 09:30:10
Hi guys used to live in that area and always thought the park closed around October till March the following year. Just checked the internet and saw it closes on the 23rd December and reopens next March. Hope the rumour is wrong but it's possible he may have visited the park.

11.) 21 Dec 2020 09:35:35
Obviously celt supporter making the allegation.

12.) 21 Dec 2020 11:21:12
I hope your not monkeying around mate. Last time there were monkeys on the loose they got mauled by lions.

13.) 21 Dec 2020 13:13:26
Calling bull on this one! The guy has just got the move of his life and he's going to endanger that by going to a public place where anyone could see him? Not a chance in my book!

14.) 21 Dec 2020 13:34:47
Not so long ago kemar roofe his missus and 2, possibly 3 kids had a private tour of the park. I seen The pictures of it. Possibly has McLaughlin had a similar tour? I don’t know the rules on travel bans as don’t know where he lives or what ban i my in place regarding the park or even if they incorporate certain rules atm.

15.) 21 Dec 2020 16:32:38
I think under certain circumstances like for your mental health you can travel it’s not just these players that have to stick to stricter rules it’s the partners and kids must be stressful for them to at least the players get to go to training and see other people.

16.) 21 Dec 2020 17:56:48
Does not matter if it blairdrummond tesco paisley etc players need to have there personal life to not waken in morning head to murray pk then head home an lock the doors am sure the club etc have told them enough protocals etc.



18 Nov 2020 13:24:09
Anyone know what's up with Steven Davis? Withdrawn from NI squad for personal reasons along with Lafferty and another player. I know about Laffs sister but hope everything ok with Davo.


1.) 18 Nov 2020 15:31:17
This morning’s rumour on Instagram said all had C.V.. I’ll wait till rangers say one way or another.

2.) 18 Nov 2020 16:09:18
Family reasons I heard.

3.) 18 Nov 2020 16:12:36
We've all heard it's for family reasons 🤔.

4.) 18 Nov 2020 16:48:04
thought he had a hammy injury?

5.) 18 Nov 2020 17:30:02
Davis an lafferty are family reasons why they have with drawn we no off laff sis etc am sure it will come out somewere why davis withdrew.

6.) 18 Nov 2020 21:53:01
No matter what. He'll be fine andn its good that he's not risked injury in a pointless game. Sheep admirers coming up.

7.) 19 Nov 2020 13:32:15
At Sonia Laffertys funeral, both families very close friends.

8.) 19 Nov 2020 14:10:41
Heard his nanny and wee boy were involved in a car accident.

9.) 19 Nov 2020 17:15:07
C.V., funeral and car crash, think il wait for the club to say if anything wrong.

10.) 20 Nov 2020 09:27:50
Can we just not leave Steven to some privacy ✌️.

11.) 20 Nov 2020 09:53:41
My own thoughts, the game was meaningless and he hadn't seen his family for a few days. I know he loves representing his country and is proud to do so but family will always come first.

12.) 20 Nov 2020 17:16:41
Yateley, I don’t think anyone’s camped outside his door mate, what a very strange thing to say, does that mean you want us not to talk about Davis, ?

13.) 22 Nov 2020 22:13:52
correct tt that's what he's saying.

The midfield playing closer to the forwards today is what made a massive difference. Arfield without touching the ball often had a huge influence on that game. Covering for Tav when needed and then squeezing the play. Lundstram would have sat a lot deeper than Arfield did. I'm not having a go at Lundstram as his style of play will be useful in various games but we were superb today and the managers changes to the lineup paid off big time.


1.) 31 Oct 2021 14:22:29
Arfield, Davis and Kamara were big players for us today.

2.) 31 Oct 2021 15:29:22
Much better balance to the team with that midfield. Not a fan of Lundstram sorry. Davis our main man but at his age he can’t play every game.



31 Oct 2021 13:23:59
Lots of posters writing Sakala off before we had even seen him get a chance. I honestly couldn't be happier for him. Go get a hatrick son.


1.) 31 Oct 2021 13:29:05
Superb. Well done son.

2.) 31 Oct 2021 13:57:32
Not only a hat trick but he had a very good game.

3.) 31 Oct 2021 13:57:56
That's the way to do it.

4.) 31 Oct 2021 13:58:58
Brilliant second half well done boys 🔴⚪️🔵.

5.) 31 Oct 2021 13:59:01
Yip, well done son👍Some do write of new signings too quickly and fashion sakala was superb today, as was the always impeccable steven davis and captain tavernier👌.

6.) 31 Oct 2021 14:02:29
Well done Sakala. Great win in the end. But why, oh why, do we keep conceding early goals!

7.) 31 Oct 2021 14:14:59
Well at long last we move the ball at pace Sakals was superb we were like the team of last season pressing all over the pitch and moving the ball forward at pace not across the field then back the other way we gave away a very poor goal yes Goldson was poor for it but Tav should have dealt with it, but after that wake up call there wasn’t a poor player on the pitch, that is the level we need to keep playing at it’s a long time since I’ve said this but I didn’t want that game to end I was really enjoying it and what about the smile on Sakalas face he looks a right character who could light up any dressing room brilliant day at the office.



31 Oct 2021 12:52:08
Poor goal to concede but other than that we have played really well. Sakala has been good and that's the best I've seen Morelos for a while. His link up play has been exceptional. We'll done to Tav, goal and an assist to atone for his part in their goal. Let's go and batter this mob.


1.) 31 Oct 2021 12:57:45
Agree, think we've been really at it today.

2.) 31 Oct 2021 12:59:42
Good balanced post MOC.

3.) 31 Oct 2021 13:04:35
Our captain tav has been terrific and on the money for me👍The constant tav bashers have to understand that gerrard wants tav to play this attacking way, with playing high and offensive🤔The problem a lot of the time is the defensive mid who should be covering the gap, when tav goes on those marauding/ attacking runs🤔That's why we miss jacko badly, as he's terrific at covering tav🤔.

4.) 31 Oct 2021 13:10:02
Don’t let the facts get on the way SGL - remember, Tav is an empty jersey, never a captain and should be replaced by an unproven but talented youngster.

5.) 31 Oct 2021 13:14:37
SGL some folk don’t understand tactics and just blame whatever player plays in the position the goal comes from.

6.) 31 Oct 2021 13:16:31
Scotty Arfield has provided that cover for Tav by filling the spaces on the RS, he’s def being used more in a cover role than his usual late runs in behind. Tav has looked like his old self due to this.

7.) 31 Oct 2021 14:03:09
Tav's an empty Jersey Dk19😂Get a grip pal and behave yourself coming away with hot air statements like that🤔What were you watching today my friend🤔🤔.

8.) 31 Oct 2021 14:04:19
Correct Scotty123👍Try explaining that to DK19🤔.

9.) 31 Oct 2021 14:06:29
Sgl I'm a Tav fan but would say his deliveries first half were poor as we're basseys. Goal was amazing and played more like himself second half.

10.) 31 Oct 2021 14:15:40
SGL, dk is obviously being sarcastic.
Interesting to note Boyd, Neil McFadden all blame gave for corner along with Goldston, then all blame tav for switching off at corner.
However he and everybody stepped up and totally dominated the game, I also felt Bassey was very good as was the very slow aging not good enough Scotty.

11.) 31 Oct 2021 14:45:07
Coops, DK is being sarcastic pal 😁.



31 Oct 2021 12:48:27
Absolutely delighted for Sakala. We'll in son.


1.) 31 Oct 2021 12:50:05
Superb. He's played very well. Tav's goal was an absolute belter as well.

2.) 31 Oct 2021 12:53:11
We're very bright and have been by far the best team. Pity half time came just now as we have really ignited.

3.) 31 Oct 2021 12:56:11
Agree great to see him starting today.



31 Oct 2021 12:46:07
Thats some goal. Well done Tav.


1.) 31 Oct 2021 12:50:39
As bad as tav is he always seems to take chances like that, fair play to him.

2.) 31 Oct 2021 13:00:33
As bad as Tav is? Get a grip man.

My top 3 choices would be:

1. Gio Van Bronckhorst - Tjere is the obvious Rangers link there but I don't think that's too important. I think he showed at Feyenoord that he is a top class manager.

2. Dean Smith - Some might laugh at this but Dean Smith is a top coach. He did superbly on a small budget at Brentford and I thought he was doing well at Villa. All his players love him and if we can get a manager that brings the squad together after a bit of turmoil that can only be a good thing.

3. Callum Davidson - It's probably too early for him and I would worry about his ability to attract players but there's no doubting the great job he is doing at St Johnstone. I can see him managing Rangers in the future but this is probably too soon.

Followwewill56, if we want a big name ie Koeman, Terry or even GVB they will all use us as a stepping stone. It's nothing about the club, it's playing in Scotland. GVB is my choice but let's be honest, if he does we'll he will be away to bigger leagues in the future. I can't see any manager being here from the names that are in the mix for more than 3-4 years. GVB jumped at the chance to move as a player and will do so again as manager I'm sure if the right opportunity arises.

Kevin Thomson I can totally get on board with as an assistant but not Ian Mccall. He was my manager for a short period of time and although I thought he was a good manager he is very very stuck in his ways. I can't see the modern player of the calibre of the players at Rangers taking to his methods.

Fair enough irvblue99. Like I say, I'm not sure. He's hardly played in almost 3 years apart from minutes off the bench or when someone is injured. In the last 3 full seasons plus this season so far he's scored 10 goals in all competitions at club level. Like I say most of his playing time is when coming off the bench so it's difficult to judge the lack of goals.

Decent player but doesn't really get much game time at Burnley. He'll be 30 years old by the summer so no resale value so he needs to be a player that makes a big impact. I'm not sure he's going to do that. I'm on the fence with this one.

Well said Stu. John25, I've not been on much recently and haven't read what has happened but don't leave the site and let the keyboard warriors win.

Gio is a big name guys. What he did at Feyenoord was brilliant.

I've not commented on SG leaving until now but I hold no I'll feeling at all. He has raised the profile of our club. He has raised the standards within the club. He helped us win 55 and stop 10 in a row. He has improved us beyond recognition in Europe. His only shortcoming was his failure to win a cup or two. If he feels Aston Villa is the right move at this stage of his career then good luck to him. I'm not sure it's a great career move but in my opinion he has earned the right to make that decision.

Just seen an interview with Jamie Carragher where he says ideally SG wants to leave Rangers with another couple of trophies under his belt. Its just Carraghers opinion but I just wonder if they have spoken about it and this is a wee hint that he will be staying. I certainly hope so.
