Heart and Hand have said Rangers HAVEN'T made an approach for Shankland.
Thank feck.
9 goals from open play isn't good enough for Rangers.


1.) 10 Apr 2023 13:22:17
We need far better than him, seen your comment earlier mph some want 3m+ spent on him but don't want Tillman signed unreal some fans.

2.) 10 Apr 2023 13:51:07
We might perceive that we need better than Shankland but, (i), will that happen, and (ii), given the correct quality around him, Shankland could easily score 30 goals+ a season, just ask McCoist and Boyd.
The problem is that we have not brought the appropriate quality of player to the club for a number of seasons failing to replace McGregor, Davis, Arfield and Jack with younger players of a similar or better quality, we failed to cash in on Morelos and Kent when their value was high and replace them with better or similar players and the centre of our defence is still a basket case despite the money spent and players signed.
Tillman and Shankland would both be quality signings with the appropriate level of quality beside them and behind them.
We need some proven quality leaders signed, not youngsters where there is more interest in how much we can make on them rather than whether they can win us the league.

3.) 10 Apr 2023 14:00:02
100% MPH age isn’t good enough IMO he wouldn’t get pens aff Tav. Colak is better and he isn’t good enough to be starter every week.

4.) 10 Apr 2023 14:02:55
Or he could fail playing against 11 behind the ball.

5.) 10 Apr 2023 14:09:00
BB its seems though that’s the main by product of who we buy. How much we can make. I.

6.) 10 Apr 2023 16:46:06
Shankland is a carthorse and this was proved beyond any doubt in Belgium and also in Hearts pathetic efforts in Europe .

McBurnie is an olympic level sprinter in comparison so is Dykes. btw both of them are quicker than Morelos as well.

7.) 10 apr 2023 16:55:56
thats correct bb and windy, sometimes you need to find boys to win the league before looking for a cash return,

8.) 10 Apr 2023 18:44:44
100% correct Tom.

9.) 10 Apr 2023 19:57:38
Spot on, Tom. We need guys to win us the league next season and that's all that counts right now and they aren't Shankland or Nisbet.

10.) 11 Apr 2023 15:02:40
I wouldn't discount either Nisbet or Shankland at the right price so long as we have the quality of player beside them that can give them the support needed. I hear analogies with McCoist and comments that we would have had criticism of signing him but a big part of McCoist's success was Lately and other quality players that he played with.
I suspect that both Shankland and Nisbet would be a success with those players as well; perhaps not as big a success, but a success.

Our problem over the past few seasons has been a failure to bring in quality, failing to secure the top players and going for 3rd rate alternatives.

11.) 11 Apr 2023 15:53:31
I would take either of them as 3rd choice
Probably pick nisbett over shankland but not much in it.
John in your oppinion does Lovelace get 3rd choice striker next season or does he go out on a seasons loan to championship team for games?



06 Mar 2023 20:12:45
Rumours on Twitter, Kent's girlfriend is telling people he is leaving.
Nothing to do with money apparently, just fed up of playing in Scotland.


1.) 06 Mar 2023 21:57:49
Don't blame him. Why would a Premier league level player stay at the club considering the absolute state we are in. Getting nothing for him is a crime ross wilson should be sacked for alone. An absolute imposter known for his ego. Can Burnley just take all our board too?

2.) 06 Mar 2023 22:00:56
Wouldn't have complaints about that or him staying.

3.) 06 Mar 2023 22:17:08
Good. Free's up very good wages for 1, potentially 2 others. Has the ability to be a very good player, but dosent delivery the goals and assists required on a regular basis.

4.) 06 Mar 2023 22:25:51
Fair enough been good player but certainly has to contribute more for the wage we pay him. Just a shame we don't pick up a fee.

5.) 06 Mar 2023 22:30:35
It's my opinion, both Kent and Morelos will leave when their contracts are up. After the last couple of weeks, where I was hoping both would stay, I've come to the conclusion, they're off!

If both leave, and with Helander for the off, and Roofe made of glass, how much are we going to be down with these 4?

Roofe, who is buying him? £4m to buy. Probably £0 return?!
Helander released - £2.7 to buy. £0 return!
Kent off on a free? £7.5m to buy. £0 probability in return?!
Morelos off on free? £1m to buy. £0 probability in return?!

The reason I have said 'probability' with Kent, and Morelos, is because nothing is concrete. They could, in theory, sign new contracts.

So, with this "transfer model" we're meant to have, has it worked here? Nope!

Trophy wise, have we got a good return on investment with these players? 2 trophies in 6/ 7 seasons. Nope!

Money made from participation in Europe? Has this been successful? Yes, definitely!

So, virtually hee haw to show trophy wise, and sod all from money brought in by selling them, but at least they made us money in Europe! I'm so glad the board pumped that money straight back into our playing squad. Oh, wait, they never!

I know some will try to excuse this, but we knew we were buying 2 injury prone players. And with Kent and Morelos, we took our eye off the ball with them.

C'mon guys, surely to God you can't be happy with this? It's an omni-shambles!

6.) 06 Mar 2023 22:50:42
Good luck to the guy. Does anyone want him?

7.) 06 Mar 2023 23:23:01
Money made from Europe / sales was always going to be used to repay soft loans, these guys invested to save club, but were always going to be expecting a return for there money, I think you will find sometime soon some will be selling up to get further returns on investment, you can't blame then they have done there bit, after all it just how business works.

8.) 06 Mar 2023 23:23:11
TZjrfc Premier League player? everything else I agree with.

9.) 06 Mar 2023 23:55:24
Yes, premier league player.

10.) 07 Mar 2023 00:00:31
He’s went down hill over the last season so has wee buf.

11.) 07 Mar 2023 01:44:10
Why do people always act like it's the end of the world that a couple of players are leaving. We end up finding other club heroes down the line we always do.

As long as players give Thier all when here and honour Thier contract if they want to move on I say good luck to them.

I do however thing we should be more business orientated once a player has two years left on deal and of player not signing an extension should look to move them on asap.

12.) 07 Mar 2023 05:22:26
If ryan kent is leaving, i wish the guy all the best of luck wherever he goes next ? It's of my opinion kent would excel even more in a better/ more technical league as he'd get more time and space to showcase his undoubted ability ?I can understand him becoming a bit fed up playing in our league when he's continually fouled in this league with some of the hammer throwers ?
Parlane kent will have interest in him no doubt for me mate ?.

13.) 07 Mar 2023 05:37:33
I don't agree he's a premier league player whatsoever. If he goes to Premier league he will do the same as aribo and disappear. A championship player.

14.) 07 Mar 2023 06:43:53
Time will tell wherever he goes Herewego55?.

15.) 07 Mar 2023 07:46:41
He will get found out in the epl IMO.

16.) 07 Mar 2023 08:09:51
How's it a crime getting nothing for Kent, Tjrfc?
To get money for him, someone has to make a bid for the player.
And Kent himself has chosen to run down his contract and not sign the extension on the table.
Which is his prerogative.

17.) 07 Mar 2023 08:29:23
Tjrfc - "The absolute state we are in". Really? We are on course to record one of our highest ever points tallys, have reached 2 cup finals on the bounce and a european final. Yes we are falling short mainly down imo to poor recruitment but to say we are in a state is ridiclious. The reality is Celtic have bought well and have been incredibly consistent for 18 months now. In any other era we would be well in place for the league this season.

Kent is a good player who works incredibly hard for the team often to the detrment of his numbers and could do well in the EPL at a certain level but I don't believe he will leave.

18.) 07 Mar 2023 09:17:35
Schalke dropped £10m on Matondo and Wilson thought "ooo a bargain" guy's an utter plank .

19.) 07 Mar 2023 09:27:13
Fed up of this, 2 trophies in 6 or 7 years crap. Let's be honest we haven't had the finances to even look at competing until the last 3 or 4 seasons. Onky Morelos of those players have been here 6 seasons. Roofe been here 3, Helander 4, kent 4, Morelos 6 (averaging a goal every 2 games) . Not going to make profit on every signing and not going to win things every season when our budget was half of theirs.

20.) 07 Mar 2023 09:59:44
Peter since when is reaching finals a success at this club? Never, that's an absolutely pathetic mentality.

21.) 07 Mar 2023 10:14:42
Tjrfc you make sweep look positive on here.

Kent I would see the point if he was bossing it every game in why he would be bored maybe that’s why he doesn’t always put effort in/ always inconsistent.
Let him go bigger and better players than him have left our great club he is a serial loser and fails to do it when needed.

22.) 07 Mar 2023 11:20:33
We could point that at many of our players stormtrooper just not kent and colak and of course the whipping boy tav ?.

23.) 07 Mar 2023 12:41:37
TJRFC - Nobody said its success (Clearly its not) and we have fell short as I said BUT its not in an "absolute state". Comments like that are ridiclious.

24.) 07 Mar 2023 12:50:43
Coops we are talking about kent tho on this post that’s why I mentioned kent. Also I would say it’s Alfredo Morelos that’s turned into the whipping boy on this site these days.

Tav has never been a good defender or ever will be and not a captain either serial loser. (Since you mentioned him) that’s my opinion am entitled to it as much as any other person on here.

You seem to question everyone opinion on here. ?.

25.) 07 Mar 2023 15:32:42
It's a simple one for me, Kent and Morelose are at the end of their contracts. If they want to go elsewhere then good luck to them. We simply need to sign better to replace them and there are plenty of better players available on free's at the end of this Season!

26.) 07 Mar 2023 17:16:16
It is an absolute state. We are as far away from them squad wise as we were in gerrards first season. Wonder what happened or who joined in that period that's had such a detrimental affect.

27.) 07 Mar 2023 17:59:10
Alright Huey, I'll go along with your assertion, and take the bait!

So, 2 trophies in 4 seasons (we'll go along with your time frame), in a 2 horse league?! You think that's acceptable? That's 2 trophies, out of a potential 12 domestic we competed in, and you're ok a club our size has only managed to win 2 of these? That's ok for you? Jesus wept!

There you have it. Continue to support failure, make excuse after excuse for our numerous failures, and all you'll ever get back is continued failure. You're now one of the Rangers supporters who are accepting of 2nd best. You can deny it, or tell me I'm talking "crap", but that's where we are nowadays with many supporters.

You would rather have a go at supporters like me, who see things as they are, who lay out cold hard facts for you to consider, but instead of accepting what's right in front of you, you'd rather be in denial and give it the old 'you're talking crap' patter! ?‍♂️?

Huey, we're on a par with St Johnstone in the number of trophies won over the last few seasons. In fact, go back a little further, and they're a trophy a head of us in the past 7 seasons. St Johnstone?! How is that acceptable?!

28.) 07 Mar 2023 21:50:37
For me since the new manager came in Kent has showed glimpses albeit glimpses of the guy we know.
I think the change of playing through the middle has been great but has been put out wide again.
Give him that freedom and let him do what he does is the way forward for me he will get back to his best unless his heart is set on somethn.

29.) 08 Mar 2023 13:48:48
If Kent and Morelos are leaving at the end of the season I would let them rot on the bench till they go.



27 Jan 2023 11:24:30
From a twitter feed called - All information on Standard de Liège, All new over Standard de Liège:-

As announced yesterday, Standard have turned down an offer from Rangers for Nicolas Raskin. This amounted to 500,000 €, while Standard wants 2 million as well as a percentage on resale.


1.) 27 Jan 2023 11:32:01
Personally I don't want to spend £2m for a player as well as add ons for a player we can get for nothing in 6month.

2.) 27 Jan 2023 11:36:35
Standard are never going to get 2 million for him from rangers when we can get him for free in the summer.

3.) 27 Jan 2023 11:42:17
They're at it!
£2million is taking the piss. Also seen they want a sell on clause. I know Rangers getva lot of stick over transfers but we cannot agree to that when we get him for nothing in 4 mo the time.

4.) 27 Jan 2023 11:48:04
2 mill is a steal for Raskin, he is exactly what we need in our midfield. we are still playing for 2 cups and potentially the league as well as a guaranteed champs league group spot if we take the league too, buying him now is a solid move.

5.) 27 Jan 2023 11:56:47
If true we should park this and let the boy join in 5 months.

6.) 27 Jan 2023 12:21:55
If they want 2 they've no chance personally I think 1m is fair given the length of time left on his contract.

7.) 27 Jan 2023 12:52:18
Raskin we will see you in the summer

Ger55 won't pay that.

8.) 27 Jan 2023 12:57:53
No chance we should be paying 2m.

9.) 27 Jan 2023 13:15:59
As much as I want the boy here, right now, there's not a chance I would give them this. If this is true, they can do one?!
Did this not happen before with a player we could've signed on a pre-contract, and their current club at the time, was demanding a sell on fee?

10.) 27 Jan 2023 13:26:34
Big Ben, yes hears wanted a 20% sell on for Souttar.

11.) 27 Jan 2023 13:43:25
Beale has came out and said no pre contract contract signed, fingers crossed we can get it down now, seems a lot of sources wrong on this one.

12.) 27 Jan 2023 13:53:48
That's the one John. Cheeky persons!

13.) 27 Jan 2023 14:08:38
Has Sakala peaked in value and it's the right time to sell him? If Whittaker replaces him then maybe the risk is he loses value quickly, all about money these days . But somebody is going soon to cover the incomings cost, this board see it that way. tie and blazer priority people.

14.) 27 Jan 2023 14:18:30
A lot of people ain’t understanding this we won’t get him for free in the summer as he is 21 so development fee will be paid whatever that amount is but it won’t be free.

15.) 27 Jan 2023 14:34:01
The thing is if he dose not sign a pre contract anybody else could nip in and do the same, coarse tbey want too make money on him

Its a risk you take

If you really want him you pay a fee

Unless 100% certain of a pre contract signed by Raskin too us or he really wants to become a gers player
We risk any other team doing the same

Its all Weeleying n dealing

Both party's want tbe best they can get for themselfs.



21 Jan 2023 14:36:02
The following translated from RTBF ( Belgium Football info ) :-
Belgian midfielder Nicolas Raskin is at the end of his contract at Standard de Liège next June. Much ink to flow around the negotiations, but nothing has been put on paper for an extension. The people of Liège must therefore separate from the 21-year-old median during this transfer window or risk seeing him leave for free in the club of this choice in June.
After interest from Racing Genk and Antwerp in particular, HLN indicates that an agreement exists between Raskin, who preferred an adventure abroad, and Glasgow Rangers. The vice-champion of Scotland should therefore do the same with the Liège team if he wishes to obtain the signing of the talented player. Contacts are not yet established between the two clubs.


1.) 21 Jan 2023 14:42:21
Nice post!

Big fan of the term Vice-Champion ?. Sounds like some rubbish you’d get on sky or bt on the stats board.

2.) 21 Jan 2023 14:48:21
Hes the only one I'm excited about getting other two I'm hopefull will be big for us but they're unknown at our level. Has lowry been sidelined this year for not working hard enough?

3.) 21 Jan 2023 15:04:58
Unfortunately Lowry is fighting with Tillman and Arfield.
And both have so far chipped in with goals and assists. Though Arfield for me isn’t a starter anymore.
I’m a huge fan of Lowry and fingers crossed he gets a chance and grabs it with both hands.

4.) 21 Jan 2023 18:14:43
Had heard a rumour he had an attitude coming back and wasn't trying as hard as others.

5.) 21 Jan 2023 19:11:18
I'm guessing no more reliable than daily rebel or the sun ?.

6.) 21 Jan 2023 19:36:06
Mr potato Lowry not exactly fighting with them if he's not getting a fair shot . Think I hate with rangers a first team player can have a bad coue games and stay in just look at lundstrum recently ? lol or sands yet if a boy like Lowry has a small dip he's not good enough not up to standard has to do more does his teammates think he deserves a chance.

Your ment to build youth up not tear them down I still maintain if it wasn't for advocate we would never have had Ferguson for all those years same with McGregor with leguen foreign managers put faith in youngsters we don't only need to look at how our players are getting on in Italy Belgium our youth are starting to realise Scottish football is a graveyard for youth.

7.) 21 Jan 2023 20:47:49
I'd agree gofor I also think it's a symptom of us not winning games early anymore if we had games to bed early bring on the youth.

8.) 21 Jan 2023 21:23:46
Gofor when did gio put faith in youngsters.

9.) 22 Jan 2023 01:16:19
Storm did I say anything about gio?

Read again I said advocaat and leguen.



07 May 2022 18:18:07
Arfield signs one year extension.


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

10 Dec 2023 18:51:54
After today result for Celtic, we have been gifted another opportunity to close the gap.
Fingers crossed, the players grab the latest opportunity with both hands and there is no repeat of the awful performance up at Pittodrie.




10 Dec 2023 09:56:48
My thoughts on yesterday.
Penalty to Rangers✅
Red card✅
Dug in and still created chances on the break second half.
Really good team performance.
Great to see 2 academy players on the park in the second half.
Thought Sterling looked decent again.
I thought Butland was a wee bit easy on the ball at his feet at times.
Sima is a huge asset to the team.
3 points and onwards to Thursday.
Oh, and Father Clancy is a nightmare?.


1.) 10 Dec 2023 10:05:45
Very well summed up mate. Butland was stressing me yesterday. 2 or 3 times yesterday he was very casual on the ball. Its possibly a roll that sterling can grow into as positionally he was drifting all over with a role that's alien to him. Would be bit of a risk throwing him in there sunday. But were rapidly running out of options. Think john Souttar would be far better suited to the CDM roll imo.

2.) 10 Dec 2023 10:17:29
Soutter would be better used in a deal to get Shankland to Ibrox.

3.) 10 Dec 2023 10:52:18
I don’t know why most posters want Shankland, he’s a decent player but that’s all, he’s no Coisty. PC will have some one in mind and if it’s not Shankland then I wouldn’t lose much sleep over it.

4.) 10 Dec 2023 12:16:03
Hi Carrick, I think that Shankland possesses all of the skills we don't have at present up front, apart from Sima, I honestly feel that him and Abdalah would be a revelation.

5.) 10 Dec 2023 12:32:34
Hope you’re right Portger, it’s his age that bugs me 28 going 29, I’d just prefer a younger guy, I know these players are at a premium, but Hearts will ask big money for their prized asset, no sell on value, maybe I’m looking at it the wrong way?

6.) 10 Dec 2023 13:01:54
I reckon that Butland's nervousness yesterday was down to his centre backs. Souttar did not play well and is not an adequate replacement for Gouldson.

7.) 10 Dec 2023 13:44:02
Souttar was poor at the start but I thought he was much better second half when we had to do a lot more defending of our box, that's what he has always been good at. By the way the red card was a joke, he only caught Bakayoko high because he slid in and his leg was on the ground, even then there was very little force behind it. I`ve seen far worse not given in other games recently. I don`t know who was in VAR but with Clancy on the pitch and and Muir as 4th official I can only assume it was the surviving Chuckle Brother .

8.) 10 Dec 2023 14:11:36
Carrick we need someone in January who knows the league and can hit the ground running. Shankland is the only option imo. We can't be bringing someone in whose going take 2 months to settle because the league will be gone by then if we don't get the correct striker in.



04 Dec 2023 14:42:04
McCausland the new Durrant.
Sima the new Henry.
Jesus wept.
Posters are letting their excitement of Santa coming messing with their analysing of players ability! ?
Won't be long until someone compares Lammers to Laudrup?.


1.) 04 Dec 2023 15:02:15
Its already been done on here after Lammers performances in pre season friendlies . I thought it was a ridiculous comparison then and it looks even more ridiculous now.

2.) 04 Dec 2023 15:08:42

The only person that thinks Lammers is the new Laudrup is Lammers!

3.) 04 Dec 2023 15:17:14
The excitement around young Ross is because the rest of the first team are terrible. The young lad has potential and looks a bright but wouldn't be hard to out shine the rest of the squad.

Sima is another one who is woeful. Decent few finished but very wasteful. Would be worth trying Sima through the middle rather than Dessers and even Danilo at this point.

Be worth putting Tav up front too! lol.

4.) 04 Dec 2023 15:17:38
I take it you're being sarcastic about Lammers, MPH? If you're not, then you must have forgotten about some posting how he reminded them of Laudrup and Bergkamp after he scored a goal in training. Yip, that was in training, and some were creaming themselves. Unbelievable! ??.

5.) 04 Dec 2023 16:20:18
Sima is definitely the new thierry henry MPH ? Durrant and mcausland completely different players however and durrant was an outstanding midfielder ? mcausland is a winger.

6.) 04 Dec 2023 16:51:39
Mcausland . durrant ?????.

7.) 04 Dec 2023 16:56:20
MrPH, Don’t often fully agree with you but are of course correct. Grounds for optimism though I’d say.

8.) 04 Dec 2023 16:58:45
My comparison between Lammers and Laudrup ends at La.

9.) 04 Dec 2023 17:29:21
Ally, Sima isn’t woeful. And you’ve said he’s woeful and then continued to say play him through the middle ?.

10.) 04 Dec 2023 18:17:08
Coops it’s because someone on here made the ridiculous comparison yesterday.

MpH the comparisons are getting ridiculous now as none of or current team could lace any of those players mentioned boots ever.
The comparisons are cringey.

11.) 04 Dec 2023 18:17:35
Blue, ally makes sweep look positive.

12.) 04 Dec 2023 18:24:49
I certainly was, RTR.
I remember it well. ???.

13.) 04 Dec 2023 18:33:30
I know, Storm.
The above though aren’t as bad as those that claimed Beale was up there with Mr Walter Smith because of his win percentage????.

14.) 04 Dec 2023 19:11:33
Walter Smith stands alone MPH and is head and shoulders above any of them ???.

15.) 04 Dec 2023 19:47:05
There’s not many in that squad if keep if had money and options.

Butland no 1
Mccrorie no2

Tav rb
Devine back up

Sterling doesn’t suit us and should be sold
I wouldn’t keep any centre backs if had the option.

Goldson lost it
Souttar not reliable on for or fitness
Davies not good enough
Balogun last season
King needs a loan
So does yfeko

Barasic and yilmaz not good enough

Centre mid pairing

Cifuentes not good enough maybe given next season as back up to prove himself but prob should be sold
Jack should be last season
Raskin not good enough, maybe back up
Lunny not reliable but maybe back up for 1 more year
Rice not played under pc yet and maybe needs a years loan at a club he’ll play 30+ games definitely 1 for future
McKinnon so far not done it needs a years loan to decide.

Cantwell shoul fb be sold to fund new players in summer but also has ability to be our no10
Hagi will be sold.
Lawrence good player but not reliable fitness wise. Sold.

Mccausland should be back up rw next season.
Need new right winger ahead of him.

Lammers sold
Matondo 1 more season as back up lw
Sima should be played through middle til loan is over and then decide as he’s got good finishing but wasteful player. Is he worth what he would cost? £5m? Maybe not?

Wright will leave

Roofe will leave

Dessers sold

Danilo wasteful should be sold

So from our full squad i'd keep

Rice king yfeko McKinnon aloan
Lunny 1 more year
Cantwell maybe sold to fund but happy to keep
Matondo and mccausland keep as back up
Sima unsure

Maybe bring Lowry back to back up cantwell.

It’s not happy reading is it.

Stevie it’s fantasy football, where’s the money coming from to bring in twenty players.

17.) 04 Dec 2023 20:08:54
Bloody Hell Stevie. What formation would you play them in? ?.

18.) 04 Dec 2023 20:14:11
I'm not going to into each player Stevie. But I get your point.

19.) 04 Dec 2023 20:23:46
Sima is more lenny henry than thierry.

20.) 04 Dec 2023 20:34:08
Stevie you want a lot of players sold that you think aren’t good enough (which I don’t disagree) but who’s daft enough to buy them all?

21.) 04 Dec 2023 20:58:47
So a whole new team haha talk sense man this page is actually ridiculous now ??.

22.) 04 Dec 2023 22:53:59
Big dado, thank u for making me laugh.

23.) 04 Dec 2023 22:55:51
I think the people linking these players have probably never even seen laudrup or durrant play or they seen durrant after the injury when he was clearly not the same player.

24.) 04 Dec 2023 22:15:07
John I said at top mate that if had money and options.

I’m not expecting us to be Be able to do what I think need a done.
I’m so
Ply showing the state of our squad and realistically the gigantic job cle
Ent has to make a squad and team out of what he’s inherited

It’s not fantasy football atall, I’m showing the free transfers and players who will be sold and need sold and what we have left who deserve to be there .

It’s a simple assessment of the squad guys, a realistic honest assessment

Raskin if it’s ridiculous don’t reply pal.

It’s fact and truth of state of our squad.
Is there any players I’ve mentioned that anyone actually thinks should stay and play and trust?

It will take clement until the next 3 windows to have his own squad and that’s how we’re not going to be good enough til then.

25.) 04 Dec 2023 22:20:50
I’m pointing out what we need to do not what we will do.
The state of the squad we are now dealing with.

We will likely still have
one of bb and yilmaz.
Maybe cifuentes still here

What I’m pointing out is how many players we should or clement would normally get rid of that he won’t be able to as it’s too big a turnover.

Tbh though we brought in 13 players in summer so it’s not too wild a suggestion to do it again.

A fire sale and loans out with option to buy would have to happen and we’d need to invest heavily about £20m plays a few free transfers

I’m pointing out what we need and how big a job it is I’m not saying it will or won’t happen.

26.) 04 Dec 2023 23:15:17
Too many on the festive cheer already Durrant that’s hilarious.

27.) 05 Dec 2023 09:19:56
Raskin and Cifu need more time.

28.) 05 Dec 2023 13:29:38
If raskin and cifuentes can’t force there way into the starting 11 of this squad as it is, as lunny and Jack are ahead of them imo, then what chance have they got when we sign better players?



12 Nov 2023 10:56:10
Great to see Clement trusting McCausland to start.
A club like Rangers have to try and give opportunities to our B Team players.


1.) 12 Nov 2023 11:33:36
Hope we give a good account of ourselves today, hope dessers does as well.

2.) 12 Nov 2023 11:37:43
I must say I'm delighted for the young man, he deserves this opportunity and it is a clear statement from Big Phil that he will give youth the chance to prove themselves, a welcome change from previous managers. I'm also delighted to see Lawerence start. unfortunately I feel that it say's an awful lot about Cifuentes when Jack starts on a plastic pitch before him. No Dowell again in the squad. I hope to see Bailey Rice get game time today. over to you Dessers.

3.) 12 Nov 2023 11:45:33
, That team worries me, lack of movement Imo I think we will miss Danilo and cantwell

Fingers crossed.

4.) 12 Nov 2023 11:46:43
I fancy, with the way we’re playing, mcausland to get a goals today.
All our forward players have been stepping up lately with goals and I see a 5-0 today.

Fancy mcausland, dessers to be in the score sheet today and of course a tav pen.

5.) 12 Nov 2023 11:55:45
Aye, it would be great to see those that the manager has trusted today to do the business.

6.) 12 Nov 2023 12:38:35
I think we have seen plenty of movement so far John. Lawrence has looked really switched on.

7.) 12 Nov 2023 14:11:59
Surprised they played three at back. Lawrence mcausland very good. Goldson my mom.
Did butland have a save in second half t.

8.) 12 Nov 2023 21:02:34
StevieG2- good shout mate on your predictions today.
Thought McCausland was unfortunate to have his goal disallowed.

9.) 12 Nov 2023 21:55:17
Cheers Copland1 ??.

10.) 12 Nov 2023 21:55:52
If only i put that on, I’d have been fuming after the disallowed mccausland goal ?.



10 Nov 2023 12:41:03
What's not to love?
Clement continues his unbeaten run as manager in his short tenure.
Another EL Group qualification on the horizon.
We have a goalie who seems to have it all. Shot stopper, good with both feet and comes off his line to claim crosses.
We have a striker in Danilo who not only works hard for the team but scores goals.
The midfield are rock solid in a formation that suits.
And that brings me onto Clement.
We now have a man in charge who looks, acts and talks like a coach / manager.
He's passionate on the side lines.
He's bought into the full ethos of what Rangers are all about - from the expectations of the fans, to how we expect a team to perform.
And he wasn't afraid to throw young McCausland on who was a joy to watch with his pace and some of his passing was outstanding.
No huge sound bites before or after games. Just a case of job done and we can improve in certain areas.
The players all seem to have bought into his way of thinking as well as performances are now night and day from the previous incumbent.
Early days but as I said - what's not to love? ?⚪?.


1.) 10 Nov 2023 12:57:32
Totally agree MPH, things are looking much rosier.

2.) 10 Nov 2023 13:24:18
He also has a track records of bringing young players through at his clubs so that’s a big thing to look forward to.
Mccausland looks like he’s going to become a regular part of the squad going forward.

3.) 10 Nov 2023 13:38:37
Very impressed with Clement all ready, McCausland played a couple of outstanding passes last night Stevie, think he plays against livingston on Sunday.

4.) 10 Nov 2023 14:14:43
Yeah maybe give a few players a wee rest at weekend mate, cantwell had a strapping in his knee last night so he’s not ? and maybe try rest Danilo.
Give dowell a game, cifuentes needs mins aswell.
For me we should get a few back up players a start mate.

5.) 10 Nov 2023 14:32:15
Mystar, Livi will kick the blue blazes out the lad if he looks dangerous. Would be happy if he gets 30 minutes every week just now.

6.) 10 Nov 2023 15:14:57
Bring McCausland on gradually, just what PC is doing, no pressure on the lad, 15 minutes here and there, as I’ve said before, I have selfish reasons to bring this kid on as I support NI and we need players like him.
What about this other protege’ Rice ‘? I feel he’s another one for the future?

7.) 10 Nov 2023 16:04:25
Great post and all agreed on it from me anyway.

8.) 10 Nov 2023 17:57:13
You get once in a generation football managers. Jock Stein was the first that I can remember, then Walter Smith, then I thought it was going to be Postecoglu but he is now gone and so let's all hope that it is Clement and he sticks around with us.

How’s it not embarrassing?
Done nothing since 2018.
Though as a manager he has won the Scottish 1st division with ICT and with other clubs…nothing.
Loved him as a player but it’s this backward thinking that hinders the club from going forward.

It's also Aberdeens season.
And they will fights all the way.
We have to match them and then let our superior quality take over.

Bullied Celtic in his second season? ?
Played 6 times against Celtic and we won once. The dead rubber at the end of the season?‍♂️
Lost a LC Final.
And a SC Semi Final.
Short memories? No, just the correct ones.

Lundstram Rangers career.
1st 6 months - rank rotten
Road to Seville - excellent
2nd season - rank rotten
Under Beale - rank rotten
Under Clement - decent. Though never turned up against Aberdeen or Aris. 2 huge games.
We need better.
We shouldn’t be putting all our eggs in the Lundstram midfielder basket.
