Eliaquim Mangala - short term For hilander,

thoughts peeps? any truth?


1.) 18 Sep 2021 13:06:10
Is this a rumour punter? Or you just asking.

2.) 18 Sep 2021 15:02:35
both, bit of click bate .

3.) 18 Sep 2021 15:45:50
copy paste job

Rangers could have to make do without Filip Helander for some time this season, the big Swede isn’t the sort of player to go down injured or need stretchered off unless something serious has happened, Steven Gerrard confirming that he has already had an operation which will put him out for the “foreseeable future“.
With this in mind, the gaffer has a few options:

Promote Jack Simpson to play more regularly.

Consider moving Calvin Bassey into his more natural centre-half position.

Recall Niko Katic in January.

Or, have a look at the free agents currently without a club.

If he decides to go with the latter, there is one name that sticks out like a sore thumb and one that is surprising to see still without a club having played in La Liga, the Premier League, Portugal’s Premeira Liga and the Belgian Jupiler Pro League.

He’s won the league in three different countries and has eight caps for France and, at 30-years old, Eliaquim Mangala – once rated at £31.5million – is far from past it.

Since leaving Valencia in the summer, the former Manchester City centre-half has yet to find a new club, he isn’t injured or recovering from injury either, in short, he would be the perfect player to offer a short-term deal to should Gerrard decide that he wants or needs more experienced cover alongside Connor Goldson and Leon Balogun.
Mangala wouldn’t have to play every game and for all that the Scottish Premiership is a step down compared to what he is used to, there is no doubting his quality as a defender and it would give him the chance to put himself in the shop window to kick-start his career.

It’s an almost zero risk transfer, the sort that Ross Wilson loves, we just need to wait and see just how bad Helander’s injury is first but, in the worst case scenario, there is a solution available that ticks an awful lot of boxes.

4.) 18 Sep 2021 16:59:48
I thought Cahill should have been offered a deal when Goldson still hadn’t signed up, but this is a good call too Paul.

5.) 18 Sep 2021 18:51:41
I agree TT12 👍I thought we should have signed cahill but mangala is a free agent and is a left footed centre half, so could be a worthwhile shout on a deal until the end of the season 🤔.

6.) 18 Sep 2021 19:02:21
So it’s just click bait then.

7.) 18 Sep 2021 19:30:00
I've also seen this click bait. Mangala is a good option but also in the click bait article was Everson formerly of Monaco and Nicolas N'kolou. All would be great signings but for players of that stature still to be free agents I think there must be something wrong ie injuries or wage demands too high etc.

8.) 19 Sep 2021 09:17:17
Cahill didn't want to come to Scotland. He was quoted saying he wanted to stay down the south of England.

9.) 19 Sep 2021 09:27:08
Jack Simpson gives me the fear man.

10.) 19 Sep 2021 10:13:58
When you consider the teams and price tags he’s had then there must be something about him. Also has French caps I think? Could be wrong though 🤷🏻.

11.) 19 Sep 2021 10:35:10
I see maicon is also a free agent
There’s a good few on that list.

12.) 19 Sep 2021 16:46:09
Sorry sweep, I just said he could have been offered a deal.

13.) 19 Sep 2021 20:39:02
Punter Bassey played one game for liecster under 23 at ch.
played twice there for us so not a natural ch imo.

14.) 20 Sep 2021 16:25:41
we need a Gougie at the heart some passion Souttar would do me.

Bassey Durys out.

15.) 20 Sep 2021 17:32:05
We need a CB to fill the void left by the injury to Helander and the fact Katic is now on loan.
Basically we only have Goldson, Balogun, and Simpson.
Simpson to me will struggle to become a first team regular at Rangers.

16.) 21 Sep 2021 12:36:49
Think the young lad King could step in as a 5th choice behind the 3 you mentioned and Bassey can slot in. Big expectations for the boy King. Not seen much but my friend says he is a cracking talent with huge potential. We fought hard to keep him from moving down south and I think he could get some match time this season.



10 Sep 2021 19:25:44
Jed Wallace linked with him. anyone know of him?


1.) 10 Sep 2021 22:51:33
Punter. Would be very surprised, value about 6 million.
Plays with millwall
Another Jones or barker imo.
Skiv ole so valued at less.

2.) 10 Sep 2021 23:31:51
If it’s the boy from Millwall he scored a few goals towards the end of last season, I actually thought he was an attacker but he appears to be more a midfielder? His record doesn’t suggest an upgrade on what we have but if he does sign I’ll fully support him.

3.) 11 Sep 2021 06:39:11
John he is out of contract and can talk to clubs in jan.

4.) 11 Sep 2021 07:58:43
He’s a decent player but I’m with John in that I’d much prefer Olson.

5.) 11 Sep 2021 08:28:02
No where near good enough.

6.) 11 Sep 2021 08:57:00
Cool storm, still not standard we want imo.

7.) 11 Sep 2021 09:09:57
Olson was a target 2 seasons ago I just don't see him making the move at his age now.

8.) 11 Sep 2021 12:01:34
Not sure why he would not make a move at 21 sweep.

9.) 11 Sep 2021 13:24:08
Skov olsen for me also by a mile 👌
Superb player and if not him barrie mckay once he plays out his skin for the jam tarts 😁.

10.) 12 Sep 2021 11:12:42
I'm meaning to Scotland John after what I've seen he will be moving to a higher league now imo. We needed to get him a few seasons back to have a chance.

11.) 12 Sep 2021 13:18:40
Possible sweep, but if Stevie wanted him we should at least try for him.



03 Jul 2021 10:33:53
Told on thur Lundstram and Ferguson that we are trying to sign.
Also two other signings in pipe line but doesn't know who they are at the moment ones a keeper + a right sided player.

Both Fergie and Lundstrum will sign if:

Wages for Lundstram are tweaked.

Aberdeen want to keep fergie for a year on loan if we can agree a fee .

first team players will go

Goldston if they can't get him to sign.

Barker, Jones to find clubs with a few others to go.

Rangers hope Bassey can fill-in at centre half so maybe looking as a left back as well.

Told this by a s*n reporter that lives next door to me while i was paining me fence + few beers.
Told me load of celtic rumours also but not for here .


1.) 03 Jul 2021 11:32:11
Is it andy devlin that is the s*n reporter? 😂

I hope you are right I would take both midfielders I know some on here don’t like Ferguson but I do.

2.) 03 Jul 2021 11:42:46
Can a ask does that sound right we're going pay millions for fergi but loan him bk and a can a say no way has any one at a high level at rangers spoken to the sun paper and told your neighbour what going on do you forget SG is from Liverpool and detest the rag the sun and for good reason.

3.) 03 Jul 2021 12:02:55
No Not him he's more freelance i suppose not solely tied to a certain paper.

4.) 03 Jul 2021 12:31:05
Would be happy to see Ferguson transfer with a year loan to Aberdeen, it gives him much more game time to continue progress and weakens them against us.

Lundstram seems an excellent acquisition if wages are not too high.

Hope there is something special being lined up under the radar.

Hopefully CL group stages this year would be brilliant both for football and finances.

56 a must because of direct entry to CL group stage next year.

Onwards and upwards.

5.) 03 Jul 2021 12:33:05
East Belast i have no idea if he talks to rangers or maybe here heard it from a contact or grapevine. i know works for other media outlets i said the certain paper because that's the best known maybe i shouldn't have mentioned now.

6.) 03 Jul 2021 13:31:41
Punter your neighbour is spinning you some tom right buddy.

Rangers have shown no interest in Ferguson. Source his uncle. Norwich and Brentford where the only 2 showing interest. No Scottish clubs are interested due to Aberdeen valuation.

Re Shirley . Why would we move a young leftback to Centrehalf when we have Helander, Balogin, Simpson, Katic, Edminson and young King if Goldson is sold.

7.) 03 Jul 2021 14:51:43
im only passing / saying what he said i have no idea if true or tom right as you put.
Heading does say rumours.

Time will tell.

8.) 03 Jul 2021 16:18:05
Punter keep posting mate and don’t worry about anyone else.

9.) 03 Jul 2021 16:59:53
Punter keep posting u contribute well to site.

10.) 03 Jul 2021 17:19:22
I actually believe we do have an interest in Ferguson but the fact he signed that 5 year deal last season he’s blundered and priced himself out of a move to us. Perhaps some haggling and some player swaps n loans etc may well help us with that deal.

11.) 03 Jul 2021 17:21:37
Yeah punter a rumour is a rumour bro. Keep posting buddy I have also been the victim taking in and posting some tommy from so call reliable source or what I thought to be.

No offence ment bud.

12.) 03 Jul 2021 17:57:45
No mate u have ever right to post am only saying why waste millions on a player and not play him for a full season we can't afford to do that so in my opinion it won't happen.

13.) 03 Jul 2021 18:07:47
Stewarty we have all been taken in and posted rubbish.
At end off day we at rangers do business very welll.



30 Jun 2021 06:44:13
Goldston anyone got any news? is he trying to work his ticket out this summer or leave FOC next summer.

Hes owes us at transfer fee at least IMO.

Hope we can find a bit of common ground to keeps the club and him happy.


1.) 30 Jun 2021 08:51:54
If he doesn't sign then he goes asap. can't have him or anyone running down contract.

2.) 30 Jun 2021 09:10:41
Thought he was happy here but don’t know wowed have offered him but it will be a tidy sum. Got a feeling him and big fill could be away (hope I’m wrong) seems we are keeping Edmundson and brought in Simpson and we are linked with others.

3.) 30 Jun 2021 10:18:59
Big katic looks like a machine man, I’m wondering if we actually need to loan him out? He looks 💯 super fit. I’d like him to play in the pre season games before deciding about a loan.

4.) 30 Jun 2021 12:08:01
He certaiy looks the part inger but it's no good being 6ft and built like a tank if you can't defend. I like the big man and I hope he comes good but he's got a lot of work to do on his job which is defending first and foremost.

5.) 30 Jun 2021 12:30:37
3cheers I think he’s a colossus at the back most times I’ve seen him. He’s made a few mistakes but remembers very young for a centre back. They don’t come good until after 26/ 27. Look at John stones as an example? Infact he still makes the odd mistake. I know big goughie loves katic and if he rated u as a defender u must be doing something right. I think he’ll be a 1st pick for us next season. This season is all about getting match sharp.

6.) 30 Jun 2021 12:35:07
Goldson thinks he's better than he actually is. He's in for big surprise.

7.) 30 Jun 2021 13:21:49
That's the good thing inger he's still young and still learning. He will be hungrier than ever after missing last season. He needs games more than ever this season so a loan move would probably be best for him. We have both Simpson and Edmundson and depending on what happens with Goldson. As you say the big man is good but he could be much better and getting a run of games is a must for him at this stage.

8.) 30 Jun 2021 19:44:52
Goldson just manuvering for a better contract …. normal.

9.) 30 Jun 2021 20:28:29
Owes us nothing, we pick up freedom of contract players every season. Does it bother you the clubs we take them from get nothing?



21 Jun 2021 19:35:42
John Lundstram to Brentford not sure if true or just bull.


1.) 21 Jun 2021 21:02:01
Surely they won’t pay the reported £30k he’s after? Might well be true though. I like Brentford. If they keep Toney and the keeper raya I think they could do well this season. Perhaps 14th -12 or something like that.

2.) 21 Jun 2021 22:33:46
Who cares, he’s not a world beater!

3.) 22 Jun 2021 07:44:30
Why would brentford not pay 30k a week? They are in EPL. And have made a lot of money on transfers over the years.

4.) 22 Jun 2021 10:55:09
I’d imagine with they’re size of club Paul they have a wage structure to work within. Same reason she’d Utd told him no to his demands. Clubs work within business structures. Be it length of contract, salary’s, age etc.

5.) 22 Jun 2021 12:31:29
There top earners are on mid 20s in championship. Am certain that will increase going into EPL.

6.) 22 Jun 2021 13:44:31
Possibly mate, but if they give him £30k a week Tibet’s going to want £40k and what if they get relegated like most newly promoted clubs do? It’s a big wage bill going back down. Obv I don’t know mate but I jut think that’s a bit much for them. Obviously time will tell 👍🏼.

7.) 23 Jun 2021 07:43:00
Most players wages automatically increase after promotion and decrease with relegation.
If they have players on £25k already pre promotion they will almost certainly be on £30k plus now.
I think Lundstrum would be ideal fit for them.
I thought he looked the part in Sheff Utd 1st season but less than convinced when he did play last season.
For me the Dutch CM if Kamara is sold and Lewis Ferguson if he isn’t.

Has Derby paid the Edmundson fee in full? do we have a claim to get him back if they haven't paid.


1.) 23 Sep 2021 11:35:32
I very much doubt they did and did we pay every transfer fee in full when we went into admin in 2012?

2.) 23 Sep 2021 11:51:02
Ummmm Edmundson signed for Ipswich Town not Derby, he was only at Derby on loan last season.

3.) 23 Sep 2021 12:18:32
Punter Edmundson did not sign for derby.

4.) 23 Sep 2021 16:10:28
oops schoolboy error forgot about that . cheers.

5.) 23 Sep 2021 16:53:54
Punter we all make wee faux pas occasionally.



22 Sep 2021 08:03:17
Goldston foc goes and we replace him with Souttar foc would be happy with that. Soutter yet to resign for hearts i think.

i think need more Scots in the team, but ones with a bit of passion.


1.) 22 Sep 2021 08:45:31
Punter yes Souter would be a free.

2.) 22 Sep 2021 10:24:48
Doesn’t Souter kick with the left?

3.) 22 Sep 2021 11:37:51
His Dad wasnt and went to a ND school.

4.) 22 Sep 2021 12:02:18
Bankie what differs does that make.

5.) 22 Sep 2021 13:01:55
Im a fan of Souttar. Would like to see this. he's an upgrade on Simpson for sure.

6.) 22 Sep 2021 13:31:26

I would like to see more scottish players in our team too.

7.) 22 Sep 2021 16:29:52
Why even ask about what foot he kicks with, thought trying to get away from all that nonsense.



20 Sep 2021 16:38:07
Goldson has to come out from behind the curtains and tell us him plans.

if he's leaving on free fine as we signed a few on frees so we can't complain.


1.) 20 Sep 2021 16:50:19
He doesn't need to do anything mate. Would it make any difference to you If he came out right now and said he was leaving when the season ends?

2.) 20 Sep 2021 17:12:18
Didn't we pay a fee for him?

3.) 20 Sep 2021 17:23:05
Thought we paid c£2-£3m for Goldson?

4.) 20 Sep 2021 17:25:28
I agree he didn’t need to do owt . If w get a few more months out of him good luck to the guy . He helped us stop terry Munro … forever grateful 🙏.

5.) 20 Sep 2021 17:32:23
MpH yes we did but OP aid saying we have got players on a free so can’t complain he is not saying we got Goldson on a free.

6.) 20 Sep 2021 17:49:01
Goldson will be away in Jan and we have a replacement lined up. I’d expect 2 CB’s to come in.

7.) 20 Sep 2021 18:10:15
We paid 3 million for Goldston. Plus 500k in add ons

As punter says we extensively use the free market .
Goldston will stay till May so he can leave for nothing.

8.) 20 Sep 2021 18:18:27
If Goldson goes, and we do get the young Dutch boy in on a free, then it's good business. By that time we'll have got our money's worth and more from Goldson and replaced him with a free transfer (If it's next summer) who will hopefully make us a tidy profit later down the line.

9.) 20 Sep 2021 18:18:35
Apologies, Punter.
Mis-read the post. 👍.

10.) 20 Sep 2021 18:35:27
Agree BMG, also think Dutch lad an upgrade on anything we have.

11.) 20 Sep 2021 19:46:02
What's the lad worth John? With him being in the last year of his contract, would it be worth trying to bring him in during the January transfer window? If it didn't cost too much, of course.

12.) 20 Sep 2021 20:35:04
BMG all about doing the right thing by the fans, rangers have been good to Goldson.

Hes trying to leave by the back door. we deserve better, saved his career, he was going nowhere due to his health at the time.

hes playing us "will he won't he" so the fans are off his back.



19 Sep 2021 17:23:57
Still poor.

Best result was Celtic loosing .

we should be doing our job first not relying on teams dropping points for us .




17 Sep 2021 07:07:16
Not good last night would bench Kent for the next few games.

teams have sussed us out we have no puff in the engine room.

father time is catching up with Davis

Tav spl class no more. ok he scored a no bad wan the other day.

Kent shocking

Morales, bet Lyon glad they never went the extra euro.

Wight in, roof in the middle fashion right for the next game
We can't score so let's change it.

Lumstrom box to box my **** .
if u stop our full backs were pumped for ideas.


1.) 17 Sep 2021 07:19:28
Yip agree totally.

2.) 17 Sep 2021 07:28:31
Kents injured anyway.

3.) 17 Sep 2021 08:01:39
Agreed, unfortunately
And if it's a hamstring with Kent, we might not see him b4 xmas. Worry for me is Wright was hirpling a bit as well.

4.) 17 Sep 2021 08:40:51
Was lille in for him not lyon.
