Arfield signs one year extension.


1.) 08 May 2022 13:25:42
Lowry signed until 2025 also. Both will serve us well next season.



19 Apr 2022 14:39:49

Approved for next season.
Financed by the Premiership club's on a sliding scale on where they finish for the season ( winners £195K, 12th place £67K ) .
Rumours one club voted against and this club was Celtic🤔.


1.) 19 Apr 2022 17:18:07
Was a championship club.

2.) 19 Apr 2022 17:36:37
Nope sky reporting it was a championship club probs killie.

3.) 19 Apr 2022 18:11:34
Try not be focused on them, it was Arbroath.

4.) 19 Apr 2022 19:10:56
Mph, was it really them that voted against, or are you at the wyned up mate?

5.) 19 Apr 2022 19:23:35
Heard a rumour, Amorelos.
And I do know for definite Celtic had concerns in the past.
I Can’t confirm it’s true and we’ve already had Killie and Arbroath mentioned in this thread.
That makes 3 teams for 1 vote against?

6.) 19 Apr 2022 19:29:08
Amorelos it was 100% Arbroath mate.

7.) 19 Apr 2022 20:54:08
Every club in prem voted for it. Heard various from stirling albion to dunfermline.

8.) 19 Apr 2022 21:42:17
Mph, cheers mate, john 25 thanks for clearing that up, good job var wasnt introduced this season, or we would have won the league, probably bye the xmas again. that's another crazy idea introducing it mid season, eh, at least we can plan ahead known we should be a good few points behind them, when var comes into the league.

9.) 19 Apr 2022 22:06:35
That’s a hell of a lot of money for var over a million a season could be done well cheaper than that the spfl would prob already have someone in mind they undersell out game as well.

10.) 20 Apr 2022 05:01:04
Crazy that teams like abroath get a say on premier league issues when are they ever likely to make top flight.

11.) 20 Apr 2022 06:09:19
Go for win their last two games they win league.

12.) 20 Apr 2022 06:39:01
It definitely wasn’t Celtic that was just a daft wee rumour made up 😂😂 was championship club not seen it confirmed but someone said likely to be Arbroath as they could get promoted and have to pay it next year and more than likely get relegated.

13.) 20 Apr 2022 08:53:51
It definitely wasnt Arbroath. Confirmed they voted yes yesterday. The hunt goes on!

14.) 20 Apr 2022 10:01:19
Were the votes sent in by email!

15.) 20 Apr 2022 11:47:31
More "ITKs" wrong again after Arbroath confirming they voted Yes.

16.) 20 Apr 2022 15:40:04
Spfl do confirm it’s a championship team,

17.) 21 Apr 2022 12:35:08
It's been confirmed it was Morton who voted no, 100% not Arbroath.



16 Feb 2022 12:14:30
Heart and Hand:-
According to club, rumours Lowry has turned down a new deal are 'rubbish'.


1.) 16 Feb 2022 12:48:28
I hope to god we can keep young alex lowry and get him tied down to a longterm contract🙏This young midfielder excites me with his talent and is something of a cross between barry ferguson and bobby russell👌.

2.) 16 Feb 2022 14:03:19
He’s a cross between alex lowry and alex lowry. Why is it as soon as a youth player breaks through he's compared to a legend 😂😂.

3.) 16 Feb 2022 14:35:23
On the eve of every single big game we play false rumours fly around regarding one or more of our players turning down contracts, asking for a transfer, coming down with sickness, you name it, and still we rise to the rancid bait.

4.) 16 Feb 2022 16:32:42
I get that it's a false rumour but didn't look happy in last interview to meand if the boy is smart I think he will leave if he does not get more game time we are holding this boy back at his age needs to be playing every week.

5.) 16 Feb 2022 16:39:08
Because i see traits in lowry that i seen in both ferguson and russell🤔
simple as that Irvblue99!Is there a problem posting that mate🤔.

6.) 16 Feb 2022 18:34:20
Correct sir walter.

7.) 16 Feb 2022 18:59:47
Irv I have to agree with you on this just let the boy be him instead of daft comparisons especially when he is nothing like one of those (BF)

8.) 16 Feb 2022 22:41:02
All about opinions. Lowry isn't Barry or Bobby. He is simply Lowry. If your good enough you play. If you don't play and get frustrated at not playing you move on. Hopefully he stays.

9.) 17 Feb 2022 05:31:31
Oh stormtrooper he is like baz the way he always seems to find pockets of space and time in the midfield area mate 🤔.

10.) 17 Feb 2022 09:23:45
Agree coops and Bobby Russell was a fantastic player. I actually think young Lowry has potential to be an outstanding player for us.

11.) 17 Feb 2022 14:23:15
If young Lowry turns out to be as good as Bobby Russell then we have got to make him an offer he can’t refuse. Bobby Russell was a class act.

12.) 17 Feb 2022 16:48:00
He's nothing like Barry ferguson imo.

13.) 17 Feb 2022 17:15:57
Correct, herewego, he's a totally different kind of player.

14.) 18 Feb 2022 18:14:28
Lowry is nothing like Ferguson or Russell, just ridiculous.

15.) 19 Feb 2022 11:08:00
IMO the lad Lowry is looking to be a special talent. For me he will emulate Patterson in the sense he will come into first team and make an impact then earn us decent money. Watching him play you see traits of other players that have been great. He carries the ball well, has great composure, vision and works hard. He looks sometimes as though he is already 2 or 3 passes ahead with his movement. We have had many like that but like all the stars before him he will find his own style which will probably have similarities to the likes of Ferguson, Thomson as Thomsonwas a coach and he probably grew up watching them. Same as they had similaritiesto there coaches and players they grew up watching. The only negative I can think of just now about him other than lack of experience which will come is for me he looks a bit lightweight but I'm sure that will develop as he gets older.



31 Jan 2022 18:12:00
Rangers have bid £300K for Souttar this window and it's a take it or leave it to Hearts as they won't go any higher ( source 4unOfficial ) .


1.) 31 Jan 2022 18:19:55
If Balogun and Helander are fit for the remainder of the season then I think it’s sensible business.

I think had we managed to get a fee for Simpson and moved him out we might have put in a final bid but seems unlikely now.

A lot of talk on here about another striker but with Morelos, Roofe, Sakala and Itten I can’t see us bringing in a 5th striker unless we can move on Itten.

Let’s see?

2.) 31 Jan 2022 18:38:57
BRW being reported on Clyde we have just had a bid rejected for Souttar this evening.

3.) 31 Jan 2022 18:42:15
Itten shouldn't be thought of as an option anymore as he's not good enough.

4.) 31 Jan 2022 18:53:18
Sweep I'm hoping for a striker before the window shuts, your right about itten.

5.) 31 Jan 2022 19:03:22
Yeah no sooner had I wrote my post I saw we put in another bid maybe we are pushing for this one to happen now.

6.) 31 Jan 2022 19:28:35
We can't get rid of itten lads, he's here till end of season now. Already had his 2 lbs this season.



14 Dec 2021 16:26:34
I know he's been mentioned in here before.
Danish Football on Twitter:-
Bologna are willing to sell Skov Olsen.
R. Sociedad, Rangers and Besiktas are some clubs that would potentially try and sign the young right-winger.


1.) 14 Dec 2021 17:44:14
Suppose to be class according to John so fingers crossed.

2.) 14 Dec 2021 17:52:57
Been impressed with this lad the times I have seen him play, and in a very good Danish national side too.

3.) 14 Dec 2021 18:08:13
Would definitely enhance our team.

4.) 14 Dec 2021 18:13:52
I would take that kid in a heart beat.

5.) 14 Dec 2021 18:16:50
This would be a remarkable signing if we could pull it off.

6.) 14 Dec 2021 18:17:40
Question - if he is so highly rated (and has been for some time) and already plays in Serie A, why has no-one else snapped him up?

7.) 14 Dec 2021 18:51:53
Robmc in fairness it was coops who first brought his name here not me.
Dk that is the conundrum, before he went to Italy he was a prolific goal scorer in danish league.
14 games for Denmark 7 goals and I think 5 assists
Very very fast and direct winger. An upgrade on barker hastie Jones et al, apparesalary around 20 k. So that would be same we pay barker and Middleton together.

8.) 14 Dec 2021 19:13:06
This would be class move if we can tho expect he'd cost a fair bit. Think we going to hear quite a few names like him and symonds as agents try and kick-start these boys careers.

9.) 14 Dec 2021 19:24:53
Would def be an upgrade if we could get him, I would have thought be out of league unfortunately as imagine English teams be in for him.

10.) 14 Dec 2021 19:54:21
If la liga is calling him he's not coming to scotland is he?

11.) 14 Dec 2021 20:09:20
Boy would be a good addition imo, 6 foot 2,tall for a winger and i think he would add something different, how much do we think he would cost?

12.) 14 Dec 2021 20:28:18
14 games 500 mins 1 assist 20k a week n prob 6 million plus to buy I’m not to sure on this one.

13.) 14 Dec 2021 20:49:04
I really like the look of this lad. Think he has all the ability needed to fit into our system and way of playing. He is young and could be developed into a better player. I have heard that Hagi will go in January with possibly 2 others.

14.) 14 Dec 2021 21:08:55
Dk 19 the boy has come our and said that the system as his club doesn't suit as the play a defensive game and don't use offensive midfield players.

15.) 15 Dec 2021 05:56:21
Skov Olsen is quality a lot of Danish players have went to italy and not settled before Bologna Barcelona and others were tracking him good coop if we get him.

16.) 15 Dec 2021 08:00:41
were we not chasing another Scandinavian wonderkid for years prior to this young lad - - is it another one of those on the wishlist?

17.) 15 Dec 2021 15:39:08
Wouldn't be 6million that's what Bologna paid and they were asking 5 million last year before a horrible season for the boy . I recon 4 or 4.5 would do it so offer 3 to start.

Huge game for the team tomorrow to get the confidence built before the return leg against USG.
And huge decisions for Gio in relation to player decisions all over the park.
We've all debated the GK situation on here.
CH partnership also up for debate.
Who starts at LB?
What's our best midfield?
Options in the front 3?
My team?
Tav Goldson Davies Yilmaz
Jack Lundstram Lawrence
Matondo Colak Kent ( if fit )
It's up to Gio to get his tactics and team selection spot on.
It's then up to the players to perform to the best of their ability.
And then us fans have a part to play by supporting the team no matter who is selected.
Keep the Faith
In Gio We Trust.


1.) 05 Aug 2022 09:48:56
Not far away with that team MPH ?
My only difference would i would look to start tillman ?.

2.) 05 Aug 2022 10:13:05
Tillman has to start as hard as it is I’d Drop Jack in favour of creativity.

3.) 05 Aug 2022 10:38:42
Have to agree R1 he looks off the pace.

4.) 05 Aug 2022 10:56:11
I really like Tillman but a team set up by McInnes will not be easy to play against in the middle of the park.

5.) 05 Aug 2022 11:14:21
Mcgregor gk Tavernier rb Goldson cb Davies cb Yilmaz lb Lundstram cm Tillman cm Wright rw Lawrence cam Matondo lw Colak cf 4231 my team, then bring Morelos and Kent from bench. i really what Lundstram and Tillman to be our cm 6 and 8.

6.) 05 Aug 2022 11:19:39

7.) 05 Aug 2022 11:52:22
Nice team bgate w hopefully he plays Lundstram and Tillman 6 and 8 centre of the park, Tillman could be that midfielder we all want.

8.) 05 Aug 2022 11:59:36
I'd be tempted to bring Arfield in, someone who can operate as a central mid and also get forward. After Tuesday, tomorrow is going to all be about attitude and Scott Arfield has it in barrel loads.






9.) 05 Aug 2022 12:25:09
Wouldn’t have jack near the team he’s been really below par and arfield for me always better as a sub.

10.) 05 Aug 2022 12:28:41
Jack needs removed from the starting 11. I agree Barrowlad, he looks off the pace.

11.) 05 Aug 2022 12:29:08
Pretty much agree MPH, if Kent not fit then play Lawrence LW and Tillman behind the striker.

12.) 05 Aug 2022 12:38:51
Saw kent at shops today, did not seem to be limping, I know that’s not be all and end all.

13.) 05 Aug 2022 13:30:08
Jack doesn't look match fit to me so for a home game I would much rather we were more attack minded with an extra attacking midfield player. I agree that McGregor should be in goal. He is the best we have until we recruit a quality keeper.

14.) 05 Aug 2022 13:31:56
On another site it's claiming Kent out for 6 weeks any1 heard anything on that.

15.) 05 Aug 2022 14:12:21
One Walter let’s wait and see. I did say broken metatarsal last Sunday, but need to wait for scan .



02 Aug 2022 18:40:37
Looks like McLaughlin is our official number 1.
Tillman? also starts.
Solid in the middle with Jack, Lundstram and Kamara though I wonder if Lundstram will occasionally drop into defence for a back 5?
Cmon the Rangers?⚪️?.


1.) 02 Aug 2022 20:36:52
Not occasionally - he's pretty much played in a back three.

2.) 02 Aug 2022 20:51:01
Say it all the time but the 3 of them don't work well together. Worse 1st half than livi.

3.) 02 Aug 2022 21:37:04
MPH naw he's no he's howling in goals.



31 Jul 2022 12:40:06
Yilmaz is in Scotland???⚪️?.


1.) 31 Jul 2022 13:13:11
Saw photo of him training hopefully get him playing soon.

2.) 31 Jul 2022 13:23:02
Yeah Gio said yesterday that he would be here today, sooner he is in the team the better.

3.) 31 Jul 2022 13:25:39
Dont no why but a thaught he'd already be here.

4.) 31 Jul 2022 13:32:06
Not allowed to be with us till he gets his work permit

Against rule to train etc.

5.) 31 Jul 2022 16:07:24
Thanks fur the info John a forgot about that mate.

6.) 31 Jul 2022 16:56:46
He's with the 1st team John his Work permit was never a problem.

7.) 31 Jul 2022 17:47:58
Twisted where do I say the work permit is a problem.



31 Jul 2022 09:51:00
Lovelace goal yesterday.
Brilliant touch and finish.
He looks the real deal!


1.) 31 Jul 2022 10:17:14
How old is this guy? looks a unit.

2.) 31 Jul 2022 10:40:55
Far corner to. Class.

3.) 31 Jul 2022 11:21:57
16/ 17.

4.) 31 Jul 2022 12:14:12
He turned 16 in January.

5.) 31 Jul 2022 12:17:35
This the lad from millwall is it?

6.) 31 Jul 2022 12:25:49
Hope he gets in around the first team later in the season and gets a few minutes when opportunity arises.

7.) 31 Jul 2022 12:51:33
He’s outstanding, senior staff have been really impressed with him.

Wouldn’t be surprised if we see him get minutes in the cup competitions this season.

8.) 31 Jul 2022 12:56:39
Cooper. Lovelace will be very close by January imo.

9.) 31 Jul 2022 13:30:24
This lad will be great for us.

10.) 31 Jul 2022 14:46:09
We signed a lot of young players during this window, Lovelace i think was our best youth signing, to make his debut for Millwall at 15 was very impressive, I'd love to see this boy get minutes this season in our first team.

11.) 31 Jul 2022 16:32:41
Mark. Zak played in five games for a total off 24 minutes due to players having C.V..
That’s an average off 5 minutes per game.
He was a sub yesterday, same when he scored against Queen’s Park, let’s not rush him.

12.) 31 Jul 2022 18:56:32
Good stats john about his minutes played for Millwall, I suppose like most rangers fans i get excited when we sign young players like Alegria and Lovelace others as well, I would love to see some of them breaking into the first team and doing well for us, you are correct about not rushing him.

13.) 31 Jul 2022 20:08:15
Oh some will come through, Lovelace has the build to go with his ability

Lot off excitement around Connor young.
Mark go on and look at the lads goal yesterday, better than Lovelace goal imo.



30 Jul 2022 22:00:46
Aribo magic for Southampton ?
All for £6 million + add ons! ?


1.) 30 Jul 2022 22:33:48
Always think he looks like bambi on ice but keeps the ball somehow ?.

2.) 30 Jul 2022 22:46:47
Will have some time trying to top that with his second ?.

3.) 31 Jul 2022 06:25:15
It just highlights the importance of selling at the right time, preferably when they have 2 years left to run.

4.) 31 Jul 2022 07:09:03
Dado so u sign someone on thre year deal sell in 12 months.

5.) 31 Jul 2022 07:46:23
By point was if we can then 24 months is the better time to sell. We wouldn’t have got £20m for Bassey if he only had 12 month on his contract. We would have got £15+ for Aribo if he had had 2 year.

I’m not sure why people keep having a go that we only got £6+ upfront. The length of time left of a contract is pivotal in the price paid.

6.) 31 Jul 2022 08:08:15
They were no bids for him with 2 years left to the fans knowledge so how can we sell him dado?

7.) 31 Jul 2022 08:35:02
I rated and liked joe aribo but he's a southampton player now and imo we got a good deal for a guy who was wanting to leave and had only 1 year remaining on his contract ? Move on and tillman and lawrence like i've said will be more than ample replacements for aribo and with a much better goal return ?.

8.) 31 Jul 2022 09:25:02
You can’t storm, the 2 years is an example of how we could have gotten more money. I agree with the people saying he was worth more than £6m, I just don’t think we could have gotten more with him only having 12 month left, some people really struggling to understand the challenging position we are in negotiating a player sake like Aribo. I don’t know how else to articulate this, if a player has 12 month left we will not get top dollar, ideally we are looking for a sale with 18-24 month left which as you stated isn’t always easy to do if nobody is bidding.

9.) 31 Jul 2022 09:42:45
Well done Mighty Joe I salute you sir. By hook or crook that ball was for the net. Big magnetic feet does it again. Happy for Joe Aribo to do well on his first competitive match. A wee hint of Georgey Best in there. Seeing that goal makes me proud, like a father see his kid do well at sports day. He did well for the WORLD FAMOUS and deserves his praise. Better times ahead for Joe. Hopefully most of us are happy for him.

It was a strange decision in my eyes to offer him a new deal.
Same with McGregor and Arfield.
I get the "experience" side but nothing else from a playing perspective.

I thought he was in the squad and was still to be assessed to see if he can play any minutes?

GVB: Ryan Kent is in the squad, as is Fashion Jr.

Ryan, we will assess tomorrow and see his fitness level if he can get minutes.

Morelos is progressing well after getting minutes at the weekend.

I wouldn't expect Boyd or Miller not to stick up for their mate.
And McGregor NEVER comes for crosses!
McLaughlin distribution against Livi - 86% accurate
McLaughlin distribution against Kilie - 79% accurate
McGregor distribution average last season in the SPFL - 76%
McGregor distribution average in the EL last season - 65%
And to be Rangers Number 1, McGregor has to be at it not just in Europe but for the full season. And unfortunately he cost us points ( and the title? ) in a few matches last season with uncharacteristic errors.
A wonderful servant but Father Time has caught up with him.
Verdict - McLaughlin number 1.

Gerrard will always be fondly remembered and treated as a hero for delivering title 55.
He also raised the profile and status of the club in Europe.
And I wished him well when he left.
Do I care now what he achieves at Villa - no.

We’ve won one, lost one without Kent.
If we win on Tuesday without Kent and go through does that mean he isn’t actually all that important?
