I would like us to move for Ryan Gauld. We need a playmaker. He's much more physical than when he left Scotland, has bags of ability, a sublime weight of pass, and scores goals. Could play 6 or 10. I've also heard that Ross Barkley has become a fantastic player in the 6 position, but probably out of range for us.

McMinn

Barkley offered deal by Aston Villa.

Gauls cannot play as a 6 in Scotland or anywhere imo.

Don’t know what he’s doing in MLS but I know he’s performing well.
Apparently would cost a lot of money ie $5m+.


2.) 02 Jun 2024 15:53:19
From his own mouth he is not suited to Scottish football.


3.) 02 Jun 2024 16:02:29
Gauld is out our reach imo . Ship has sailed on all the young Scottish players that moved abroad in recent yrs .


4.) 02 Jun 2024 16:14:50
Not convinced he could withstand the physical demands at Rangers. One of the priorities we should have is availability, players that can play 40-60 games over a number of years. RG has never been able to do that in his whole career, average 31 per season. We need to learn from past mistakes these type of players don't suddenly become robust.


5.) 02 Jun 2024 16:32:59
Gauld earning 40k a week and not interested in Scotland.


6.) 02 Jun 2024 17:10:41
John have you heard anything on barron? Someone posted he's coming and deal was agreed in jan.


7.) 02 Jun 2024 17:26:38
Folk on here didn’t want Barkley ? ?.


8.) 02 Jun 2024 19:36:07
No Walter, not since I said we had withdrawn due to agents demands. Word is PC rates McKinnon.

Players that should leave -

Tavernier
Goldson
Davies
Barisic
Dowell
Lundstram
Wright
Cantwell
Dessers
Roofe
Jack (reluctantly)

Keep Scottish core -
McCrorie (only if first choice when Butland
goes)
Devine
Souttar
King
Lowry
McKinnon
Rice


Sign - Barron, Shankland, Lennon Miller, Kieron Bowie, McKenna.

Augment with 4 or 5 genuinely good overseas players (under 26).

McMinn

Financially we might not be able to rid ourselves of a number of players especially those that have been here for too long and are still under contract.
I'm not sure we will be able to sell Davies and he certainly isn't the worst centre back at the club.
I would add Lawrence to the list of those that should go and also Goldson and I'm not sure about Souttar. I just don't think he will ever be any better than he is.
Cantwell with the right players around him might be a good player, I would be tempted to let McCrorie go, he isn't going to be our number 1 keeper, (if we lost Butland we would need to bring in a new goalie) .
I'd like to see us sign Barron and Miller, Shankland is a big no unless we are picking him up for £1m or thereabouts. There has to be better players out there if we are doing proper scouting.


2.) 12 May 2024 12:59:09
Mcminn with that selection we should be ok for a top six place.


3.) 12 May 2024 13:20:01
Depends who the 5 genuinely good overseas players are. We need a Scottish core. Foreign players should be starting players, so 5 starters added to the above plus the players staying e. g. Sterling, Lawrence, Butland and we could win the league.

Butland or McCrorie
Sterling
RCB
McKenna
Yilmaz (prefer better) .
RM
Barron
CM
Lawrence
LM (would take Sima)
Striker

Subs. e. g. Keeper, King, Souttar, Lowry, Shankland, Bowie, Rice, Miller, McAusland, McKinnon.


4.) 12 May 2024 14:11:38
McMinn you want to keep Lawrence? You must be fecking joking and let Jack go reluctantly ???.


5.) 12 May 2024 14:17:32
Time Lowry went as well.


6.) 12 May 2024 14:23:33
That team won’t come 3rd mcmin let’s hope the board and koepen have loftier ambitions than you mate ?.


7.) 12 May 2024 14:29:11
Scottish core thing does my head in, we need good players I don’t care where they come from. Its pathetic to suggest only Scottish players no what winning is all about.


8.) 12 May 2024 14:42:26
Wishy, how do you know? It's missing the 5 top signings that I've promised.
I've seen some people say Lawrence's legs have gone. I don't think that will be known till after next preseason. No way can he be match sharp after being out so long.
Lowry has been injured - he needs a proper chance next season under a Rangers manager.


9.) 12 May 2024 15:40:11
King, Devine and Souttar are never going to take Rangers forward. Devine struggles to get game time with Motherwell and King is just a non-starter. It's true we can't get rid of everyone but, with all the injuries we've had in defence, King hasn't had any minutes - which speaks volumes.


10.) 12 May 2024 19:19:57
Why is Jack reluctantly? The guys hardly played in 3 seasons.


 

 

06 May 2024 08:14:21
At 3 - 1 up I thought the attitude of the players was disgraceful. Yilmaz sauntering over to take a corner and clapping the fans? He should have been sprinting - he'd only just come on. That game could have been 5 or 6 but the players were just happy to see out time. I don't think they're bothered if they win the league or not.

McMinn

1.) 06 May 2024 08:49:10
Bit harsh mate the players created enough chances but as usual we missed too many.


2.) 06 May 2024 09:36:01
Dinosaurs never got to try dairy milk! Sorry,
Thought I’d follow up a stupid remark with another… players don’t want to win the league - jeez!


3.) 06 May 2024 09:57:50
Completely correct as soon as game appears won, we start taking it easy, passing ball around at back,


4.) 06 May 2024 11:10:24
Absolutely, I mean it's not like we have a huge game next weekend that players might have been told to preserve energy for.


5.) 06 May 2024 11:20:28
Think mcminn just a bit angry and rightly so, the tempo of the game dropped significantly when we went to 3 already mentioned this in a post. Keeping in mind they were down to 10 and absolutely knackered.


6.) 06 May 2024 12:02:24
Sollo They are not winners. A team hungry to win the league goes for the throat. We'll quite possibly lose the title on goal difference. Walter Smith would have gone absolutely ballistic watching them jogging around v 10 men when they should have been going up a gear to claw back the goal deficit. It's no good saying they had previously created chances - you keep going to the final whistle to create even more.


7.) 06 May 2024 12:29:13
That’s a new one Sollof!


8.) 06 May 2024 13:01:02
Do the bouncy, preserve energy for a game that's a week away and don't go for the goals that could potentially win us the league? Make it make sense mate.


9.) 06 May 2024 13:12:56
Don't know about that BB3, I'm still trying to work out Dinosaurs and Dairy Milk??.


10.) 06 may 2024 13:23:20
maybe in your mind there was an element of humour in your reaction, there wasnt, just stupidity as you said

the guy is 100% correct, we need goals, not nice wee waves to the crowd, there should have been no let up with attacks, hiw he kept dessers on the oitch is yet another managerial mystery, if its not working, change it, we should nit have slowed down v 10 men, but we did tet again.


11.) 06 May 2024 13:40:24
Scored 3 in the last 30 mins and 1 in the 93 min, are you just making stuff up.


12.) 06 May 2024 15:26:41
Football fans and especially ours are so damn fickle. The boy is right, we were against 10 men and once we equalise there was nobody sprinting to get the ball out the net and get kicked off. We needed to go for the jugular but they were happy with the 3 points. The pish about conserving energy for next week, utter dross. We have been mainly playing 3 matches a week so having 1 in a weeks time will be refreshing for those guys and no excuse not to be at it.


13.) 06 May 2024 19:01:44
Am with you fork, geez a shout if you solve it ?.


14.) 06 May 2024 20:00:08
Lol??.


 

 

18 Feb 2024 14:44:02
A great result. Well done Dessers, we went up a level when he came on and he created his chances himself.

McMinn

1.) 18 Feb 2024 14:54:26
Certainly gets in the right positions, although I'd like him to be more clinical.


2.) 18 Feb 2024 15:24:01
Mark I’d like every player to be more clinical

Sterling header was up there with van vossen.


3.) 18 Feb 2024 15:25:15
The work rate and positions he gets himself in are superb, finishing lacking but hopefully he’ll pop up when we need him.

On the players out injured, what was the latest we’ve had or people heard?

Roofe and Dowell- no date I can see on potential return
Sima - at the time we were going to start seeing him early April?
Danilo - luckily if we see him again this season?


4.) 18 Feb 2024 15:32:23
And missed them all c'mon that's clutching at straws lol.


5.) 18 Feb 2024 16:40:16
Big dado it’s not clutching at straws nor is it out of the ordinary silva is not finding himself in these positions or making the runs of number 9.

Dessers isn’t good enough but he will score eventually which is better than not at all.

If we don’t win the league we all know why.


6.) 18 Feb 2024 16:58:11
Nothing like van vossen miss.


7.) 18 Feb 2024 17:19:00
To me, the biggest uplift came when Sterling came on.


8.) 18 Feb 2024 20:13:21
Baz an open goal from a few yards.


 

 

02 Feb 2024 08:29:16
I've not seen anything about Lowry going on loan for the second half of the season. Can this still happen? I'd prefer PC to have a good look at him in training and get him ready for the first team.

McMinn

1.) 02 Feb 2024 08:46:22
He's out for 8 weeks came back injured.


2.) 02 Feb 2024 08:48:19
Don't think Lowery will make it at Rangers . Appears to have very high opinion of himself which is fine, but there is a difference between confidence and arrogance Lowery Appears to fit into second category, has had chance to right this but has ignored advise, can't see PC putting up with his nonsense, so will be of in summer, not going to get in front of current midfielders,

Kári Árnason, then of Aberdeen, said that McKenna was the fastest player at the club (when he was there) .

Even if Barron signed for a good Italian team he'd have a better chance of regular first team
football over there. Don't know why exactly, but I think I'm correct.

I think the snobbery comment comes from the Lewis Ferguson not Rangers class problem. I do think foreign players have a much lower threshold when it comes to taking a punt. We could have got Ferguson for peanuts when he was at Hamilton and he'd be captain by now or sold for a big profit.

Ibrox4me, why would there be a season ticket holder backlash? It would take comparative peanuts for him to invest sufficiently to make Rangers a winning team.

Cantwell doesn't have the mentality to play for Rangers. He'd have been sent off if he'd stayed on the park yesterday. We should give Lowry every chance, he's got the talent and has a better range of passing than Cantwell.

Wishybear. I agree Jack has to go, but when fit he's the best outfield player at the club.
