Heart and Hand posting that it's a certainty that Beale will be gone this week. Thank God, the man has been an abject failure and one of the worst managers in our history - his big game win percentage was abysmal.
There was a poster on here who put it out there a month into his tenure that he'd be gone not long into the new season, so well done him! To be honest, there were probably many more that knew he'd be a failure but kept quiet incase there was a pile on.


1.) 01 Oct 2023 20:49:28
Beale gone tonight.

2.) 01 Oct 2023 21:08:10
John227 ??.

3.) 01 Oct 2023 21:08:36
Roofe totally agree. The worst manager i can recall since before Waddell. let's hope the board either seek someone with football knowledge to help them or do some spadework themselves. Appointing Beale was the laziest most incompetent thing i have witnessed for years. A quick check on bbc website would have shown he was about to be sacked by QPR.

4.) 01 Oct 2023 21:19:46
Exactly john but did you not agree with sws earlier when I put it up that it was all "whatsapp Rumours" and went as far to contact an ex player?



25 Sep 2023 21:34:17
Is anyone hearing about a bust up between our ex kit man J McAlister and Bisgrove? Apparently Bisgrove sacked him after accusing him of something and it could end up in court for unfair dismissal. I read that the players are backing McAlister and J Bell's family are backing him too as he's very close to them. This is on 2 other well known Rangers forums which also state that the players hate Bisgrove.

I'm only reporting what's out there on other forums, and these are not my rumours, so no need for anyone to go off on one on me. Than you!


1.) 25 Sep 2023 23:53:02
Funny…JESTER had that same “don’t shoot the messenger” schtick. ?.

2.) 26 Sep 2023 01:05:54
The story I read today is that Steven Gerrard’s club from Saudi have offered a job to our kit man McAlister. Rangers have a compensation offer on the table for him and are considering it.

3.) 26 Sep 2023 06:29:58
Jester? ?
This story is on both the Rangers media and FF forums, so again, it's not my rumour, and I'm only reporting what I've read. Maybe you should go and read what is out there before letting a post trigger you into your response.
Why would Rangers be considering a compensation package for him Verdant? The guy hasn't been at the club for a couple of months now, so what compensation would they be considering?
From what I've read, and from some of the posters on the other sites who have contributed corresponding evidence to support this, the story sounds as if it's true.

4.) 26 Sep 2023 08:57:45
I've heard the same tbf, it's going around quite a lot of places.

James Bisgrove is/ has apparently manipulating bomber brown out as well.

If this is true, he should be terminated immediately.

We treat our own with dignity. We are more than just a business, and we need our legends around the place, now more than ever.

Souness played a round with a friend of mine at a charity golf tournament and was vocal in his worry over bisgrove and how "there is a real lack of football people running the football club".

This isn't going to get better anytime soon.

5.) 26 Sep 2023 09:36:33
He was sacked after a full investigation into allegations of theft.

6.) 26 Sep 2023 10:44:20
Wow that’s entirely a different story then John.

7.) 26 Sep 2023 10:44:28
Tj sis it wrong for a company to sack someone for theft.

8.) 26 Sep 2023 10:56:52
Apparently it was a serious theft and inexcusable so he had to go, he took the tactic sheet along with the players natural positions spreadsheet which has caused all sorts of confusion within the coaching staff, I’m not sure if we got everything back? We will have to wait and see for our next game.

9.) 26 Sep 2023 10:56:54
The players should keep there focus on the park if I were Beale that would be the number one rule. Football matters only no chat about wider goings on at the club it's nothing to do with players.

10.) 26 Sep 2023 11:25:53
Orygbomb that’s certainly diff from a few kits.
Is your source on that reliable mate?

Why on earth would he be stealing that stuff?

11.) 26 Sep 2023 11:42:54
Bomber was a scout was he not? Maybe he just isn’t a very good scout. I can appreciate he is a club legend but does that mean he should be on the payroll for life? Is it jobs for the boys?

12.) 26 sep 2023 12:21:43
i know bomber and i know john knows him possibly better than myself, but i'm not sure it's right yo ask him about something like this.

13.) 26 Sep 2023 12:41:16
Bomber a great rangers man, used to watch him coach our reserves, cheese oh

Bomber idea a good player was how hard he could kick someone,

14.) 26 Sep 2023 13:02:37
Oh! Didn’t think my post would be taken not as banter, sorry guys need to be careful with my responses in future?.

15.) 26 Sep 2023 14:08:56
Orgy. I kind of guessed that, but felt not appropriate to comment after my pop at Steve last week.

16.) 26 Sep 2023 14:32:10
I seen it for what it was orygbmb, but unfortunately, a couple didn't. Sarcasm is sometimes lost on some, but I love a bit of it. Keep it up mate.

17.) 27 Sep 2023 09:34:27
Glad I'm still in your thoughts Lazslo but I stopped posting rumours after the last time as didn't need the hassle but I've heard tidbits about J-Mc but nothing concrete.

25 May 2024 10:14:51
During the 40 years plus I've supported Rangers I have always experienced excitement and nerves on the run up to a game against them, but today I feel very little. Honestly, I don't think I have ever felt so unenthusiastic before a game against them, and it's depressing.

We're about to set out, get a few drinks, then head through to Hampden, but I really am struggling to muster any belief or enthusiasm for this game - maybe that will change after a few cold ones.

Anyway, I heard some really sad news yesterday that an old mate passed away, and even though he was a celtic supporter, he was one of the good ones, and a real gentleman. So, big man, I hope you're up there watching, and I hope your team get beat, but to show there is never any hard feelings, I'll have a drink for you and think about all the times we watched a game together in our local and the laughs we had. Rest easy big man, and thanks for the memories!


1.) 25 May 2024 10:40:58
RTR, I feel the same as you, But all I’m asking is the players go out and give it their all, So sorry for your loss mate. ???????????.

2.) 25 May 2024 10:43:07
Thoughts for your mate buddy ?
Sure he's watching from above.
Enjoy the game.
Fingers crossed.

3.) 25 May 2024 10:58:58
Rtr uv described how many fans feel.

4.) 25 May 2024 11:13:17
Very poignant and touching words for your big mate raisetheroofe and very nicely put and of course very appropriate pal ??I have a good few mates like that myself who are big celtic supporters and who i've a lot of time for and have never wished them ill ?I want their team to get destroyed and vice versa but that's where it stops and many a good time and laugh i've had with them over the years ? Just exactly like yourself mate ???.

5.) 25 May 2024 12:07:29
Sorry for your loss roofe.

I feel the same as you but I am still in my sick bed at the moment longest I have been off my work since I broke my leg 20+ years ago and maybe that
Something to do with not being up for the game who knows.

6.) 25 May 2024 12:07:57
Sorry for your loss RTR.

7.) 25 May 2024 12:10:45
Feeling pretty much the same rtr. My missus actually asked me if I was OK, telling me to cheer up it cup final day, wh does it not feel like it then? It's not a nice feeling to feel this way in such a big game. Hopefully that lot think they just need to turn up underestimate us. It is a cup final stranger things have happened, come on boys ??⚪️
Ssorry to hear about your mate, they can never take your memories raise.

8.) 25 May 2024 12:11:58
Or watching from below.

9.) 25 May 2024 12:15:27
Sorry to hear that Roofe, RIP to your mate.

10.) 25 May 2024 12:38:32
Raise, sorry about your friend.

11.) 25 May 2024 12:48:20
Classy post Roofe. Aw the best mate.

12.) 25 May 2024 13:05:47
The only way out of this deflated feeling that’s about the fans is for the team to go out and give us something, it might be just a tackle that starts us on our way but it’s there to be ignited by the team and inflamed and kicked on by the fans.

13.) 25 May 2024 13:08:15
Storm, hopefully we get a result might make you feel a bit better, good luck mate. Storm, do you have a bad cough? My missus and son are ill with it just now.

14.) 25 May 2024 13:21:12
Good man RTR. A lovely tribute.

15.) 25 May 2024 13:42:50
Same Roofe, I’ve got a few pals who are red hot Celtic fans and good guys, nothing wrong with wanting your team to do well as long as there is respect there.
Sorry for your loss.



21 May 2024 08:31:56
What is it with that wee Cantwell? If he can't use his toys responsibly, then they should be removed from his person. Honestly, the boy has done hee haw this season and still thinks it's OK to post utter single fish on his social media. Total tool!


1.) 21 May 2024 10:02:50
I don't follow him - what's he done now?

2.) 21 May 2024 10:26:06
Be very surprised if he was here next season. He just doesn't get it. well he might now after the dogs abuse he got on his post. Shushburger. We drew 3 each and had monumental collapse to hand them the title. And he's shushing folk cause he got a goal.

3.) 21 May 2024 10:26:53
With a bit of luck mate he’ll be gone in the summer, we can do without those type of characters to be honest. He’s not had a good season with us but wants to spend more time having a go at fans? Tit of a boy.

4.) 21 May 2024 10:35:41
Seen what he posted needs to do his talking on the pitch I fear he is another Kent.

5.) 21 May 2024 10:47:00
Shushburger - wired to the moon.

6.) 21 May 2024 11:50:09
They should know better. From youth level seminars are put on for the kids and parents about socail media and your presence on it. Staying off ofbitbis probably the best idea but these people want fame and the world to know their name.

7.) 21 May 2024 11:53:55
Kent was far better than Cantwell.

8.) 21 May 2024 12:30:50
Not for numbers he's not cammy. Maybe for assisting the Assister he was though.

9.) 21 May 2024 12:38:32
Cammy that made me smile mate, ones a talented footballer the other is not.

10.) 21 May 2024 12:47:49
Cantwell really doesn’t help himself sometimes. There’s something clearly deeply wrong at this club when Cantwell posts ‘shushburger’ after scoring in a draw the day Celtic were handed the league title. Hope someone like Alex Rae goes through these guys for that garbage.

11.) 21 May 2024 12:59:08
The boy leaves himself wide open for criticism. 'We need players like him' really? Guys that turn up every 6 or 7 games, blows a title then puts up a picture of himself scoring in a 3-3 draw way hearts, tellin people to shush. All about himself, no wonder we collapsed way guys like him kicking about our club. He can stick up his goal against hearts in a draw, while McGregor will more than likely be posting pictures of a double. What is actually going on at our club it's embarrassing.

12.) 21 May 2024 13:36:38
Cammy - don't agree there bud ? - imo both seem to be very much up their own backsides - think they both believe their own press far too much and both more interested in how they look than how they play.

13.) 21 May 2024 14:07:54
Kent was miles better than cantwell it’s insulting to him it’s even up for discussion. I’d go as far to saying windass is better than cantwell.

14.) 21 May 2024 14:45:21
Aye, Clark Kent.

15.) 21 May 2024 14:49:48
There was a reason why Norwich did not rate him and happy to get rid of him, this selfish behavior. It's all about me, will never make a team player out of him PC worked him out very early, will be gone as soon as we can find a buyer, which will be quite hard, to even find someone who will pay what we paid.

16.) 21 May 2024 15:16:46
Wiahy kent was terrible had 1 good season with us. Rest he underperformed. Scored 5 in his last 2 full seasons.

17.) 21 May 2024 15:18:37
Cammy no he wasn’t but you are entitled to your opinion.

18.) 21 May 2024 15:21:18
Norwich didn't rate him but knocked back millions for him gers.

19.) 21 May 2024 16:36:49
Cantwell has the ability but for whatever reason he doesn't do himself any favours with his inconsistency and his social media.
If only he could channel all of his energy into a full 90 minutes of quality this weekend and we Winn, all will be forgiven!

20.) 21 May 2024 16:52:22
Wouldn't be sad to see cantwell leave, not good enough.

21.) 21 May 2024 18:19:36
How can anyone think Kent was good I’ll never know embarrassing to call him a football player.



12 May 2024 10:39:32
They say insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. So, on that basis, why in God's name does PC persist in the same tactics against the tims? Why does he set us up to sit back and let them come at us time and time again? It doesn't work! The tactics are dire! Show them no respect and attack them from the first minute! If teams like Killie can do it, why can't we?

As much as I don't buy into some of the madness, and that PC should go, questions need asked about his tactics over the last 6 weeks. For some reason, after doing all the hard work (with the help of the tims mini implosion), he goes and absolutely ruins it by bizarre starting 11's and tactics that were just baffling. Why?

There is no grey area here, and the black and white of it is not good reading at all, but if PC wants to survive, he must address his record in games against them. It is dire, and it's what cost Gio, and Beale their jobs. If Gio can get sacked after getting us into a European final, and winning the SC, then so can PC. Fans, no matter what they think of any our managers, will not accept continuous failure against them. Why should we?

If PC does not deliver us the SC, then lose the first game against them next season (I believe is at the midden), then the clock will be ticking on his tenure. Some might not like reading that, but that's how it will be.


1.) 12 May 2024 10:53:00
Don’t agree with that Raise, go all out an attack with who?
And leave more gaps, the idea is not to sit back but try and get forward, once again we didn’t do the basics well yesterday, tracking our man, keeping the ball and using it better in the final third.
After the sending off then it’s a different game.
Manager will get a bit of time with new players.

2.) 12 may 2024 10:55:42
last 6 weeks or so have been a massive disappointment rtr

like he lost the plot, or the dressing room, or both

how anyone can mention beales name as a cause after clement got the same players to the top is just laughable, they hit the top then bottle crashed, nothing whatsoever to do with beale. , i don't fancy a cup final at hampden with these defenders.

3.) 12 May 2024 10:58:30
And if that’s happens RTR how much money would again be possibly lost that a new manager might not want once again what’s been left to him?

Is the board going to trust him to try this rebuild this summer?

For everyone - if it was let’s say your 20 million pounds would you all hand it to PC willingly to try get this rebuild and winning side for next season

I’ll honestly say I’m not so sure right know he doesn’t seem to be learning much so far? Which is giving me massive doubts about him
Also hasn’t shown much character in the sidelines I want to see more passion from the manager when we’re losing games a manager that kicks every ball
With the team on the touchline

I’m genuinely worried right now how much more can the club take how much more can the board spend every summer.

4.) 12 May 2024 10:59:25
We were pressing high with 11 players on the pitch.

5.) 12 May 2024 11:10:48
correct McMinn but Diomando was missing again along with Lawrence.

6.) 12 May 2024 11:11:28
This is the game plan lads. Give mcgregor and o reilly as much time on the ball and as much space as you can give them on the edge of the box.

7.) 12 May 2024 11:16:18
Only if the boards members are fools, sacking managers ever other year and we will do NOTHONG.

8.) 12 May 2024 11:16:50
Correct mcminn.

9.) 12 May 2024 11:17:57
Totally disagree.

10.) 12 May 2024 11:19:39
@Raise the Roofe. Finally someone that talks sense! Every auld firm McGregor commands that midfield. That's what's wins the games.

We play the same tactics every game. Does it work? No. Pc for me has really got to be questioned.

If he gets praise then he deserves criticism. His subs and tactics are baffling to say the least.

He better turn this round soon or the fans will turn on him.

11.) 12 May 2024 11:21:26
He was screaming at Lawrence first half with what looked like a gesture to get back into shape, not sure about no passion thing aswell.
Teams not at the same quality as them let’s deflect that onto something else.
So you would give 20 million to Deek McInnes Stig?

12.) 12 May 2024 11:22:50
Like you totally disagreed when I said the league was over. What was it you accused me of again, MPH. How did that work out?

13.) 12 may 2024 11:32:45
im a no thong type of guy myself anyway.

14.) 12 May 2024 11:38:58
Don’t blame clement for everything, I believe the biggest problem in the squad is ability, and also a weak mentality. We are a spineless bunch bar one or two. I think clement could have freshened it up with one or two younger players to give us the legs and maybe play with less fear. I hope our management are backed as much as possible and can address the situation.

15.) 12 May 2024 11:44:18
Aye I can't really agree with any of that. He got the best out the players available but injuries, player commitment (out of contract) and tiredness eventually caught up with us. Clement is exactly the man we need, has improved the team and many of the players, has shown adaptability with the injuries. Got a few of his own players in and see.

16.) 12 May 2024 11:51:48
We can’t keep sacking managers also pc bever had any money in jan to spend. He needs time to get players in. Doesn’t matter horn many fans think Celtic are not a good team but they are better than us plain and simple.

He got a bounce at the start and got us back in to a title fight. It’s still the same players that haven’t been good enough the last couple of years.
PC does deserve criticism tho because his inability to change formation when we have no fit decent wingers.

There is a long long list of players that need to go. Tav, Goldson, Lawrence, Lunny, Barasic, Lawrence etc. I just hope the manager has the balls to get rid of the serial losers.

17.) 12 May 2024 12:16:50
Look these players were given instructions and a plan and couldn’t carry it out. We went out to win the game but it still had to be controlled and executed. Maybe big Phil is a strict autocratic manager and some players struggle with that control or depth in plan.

18.) 12 May 2024 12:49:35
Diomande is missing in these games because he’s the guy in space with his hands up begging for a pass but lundstram and co will always choose safe ball out wide in a horseshoe. He always makes himself available centrally looking for a ball to feet where he will turn and get a shot off or play a ball round the corner for a striker etc but no one gives him it and the ball goes wide or back…. every game I’ve seen it multiple times.

19.) 12 May 2024 13:12:58
PC will do no better than his recent predecessors if he isn't backed by the Board with serious investment in players. The current squad is arguably the poorest we have had since Gerrard cam in and had to bring in his own players.
As I have said before, we should have supported Gerard with the players that he required when we won 55, the Board failed to do so and we have been going backwards ever since.
Failing to have a replacement to take over from Tav, giving Goldson a new contract, relying on Wilson and Park to find players more on a wing and a prayer and then if we found one that was exceptional selling them asap, (which was what Wilson was good at) .
Sorry but the Board are more at fault than Clement for the shambolic squad that we have.

20.) 12 May 2024 14:55:32
Well done on your ‘I told you so’?.

21.) 12 May 2024 15:05:48
Couple spot on, noticed that myself and it wasn't coincidence he got better when lundstrum went off. Berkshire we have to hope Koppen and the new team can get us better players for the money.

22.) 12 May 2024 16:04:36
Thanks, appreciate it! ?.



05 May 2024 12:05:35
Well, I know someone who'll be over the moon, Barisic is playing. Armstrong will be all over him again, and after he was in his ear from the first minute in the last game, where he got into his head, resulting in Barisic curling a hot steamer into his shorts, Armstrong will be licking his lips for round 2.




19 Apr 2024 11:56:55
On the Tav debate.

I see it posted by some that every manager we've had since Tav became captain have kept him as captain, and have always waxed lyrical about his leadership qualities. It's also pointed out by these same posters that all the managers can't be wrong about Tav.

OK, so, if my calculations are correct, that would be 6 managers and 2 caretaker ones. How many titles has Tav captained for these managers who wax lyrical of him? How many trophies?

So out of the 6 full time managers Tav has seved as captain, he's managed only one title, that's it. And for that same manager, who Tav was the captain for over 3 seasons, he managed the grand total of one trophy. Following that, there's on SC for Gio, and one LC for PC.

Aye, all they managers can't be wrong, can they?


1.) 19 Apr 2024 12:04:12
So what's your point caller? ?.

2.) 19 Apr 2024 12:08:16
Pretty sad inditement too of the leadership qualities of anyone else that noone has been viewed as a better option.

3.) 19 Apr 2024 12:14:51
That's all not down to tav that he's won only what you state mate ?.

4.) 19 Apr 2024 12:25:20
Going by that record then they are wrong.

5.) 19 Apr 2024 12:29:16
I know he has been captain but don't think it's all his fault we have won so little.

Every game nowadays is about 14 or 15 players. During his time here in terms of contribution Tav has been a good player. To blame him for everything is too easy an answer. Many players over that period have contributed very little in comparison.

I don't care is he goes in the summer as he has lost the legs to get up and down the park the way he used too. Even if he stays I would be looking at Dujon to be our first pick RB next season anyway.

Goldson and Lundstram are much bigger priorities to get shot of for me. Goldson has been poor the last 2 years and has been getting worse as the games go by. Lunny just cannot be trusted because he is either great or a liability which is no good at a club like Rangers.

With them 2 gone along with BB, Jack, Roofe, Wright, Haji and Lammers leaves enough squad space for PC and NK to refresh the squad.

6.) 19 Apr 2024 12:49:07
I think every manager that has took over has taken on a huge rebuild at the time.
And probably with the lack of finances available didn't see it as a 'problem position'.
Throw in most would like a bit of stability within the squad, keeping the captain and vice captain is probably an easy option.
But this has ultimately cost them all their jobs. As it's the same players from one season to the next underperforming.
The big question is does Clement tackle this head on next season?
Probably again depends on money available.
That's why for me winning the title and CL money was crucial.

7.) 19 Apr 2024 12:50:50
Whole team needs ripped apart and rebuilt. That costs money though. Obviously new players will come in summer and some will go. Doubt it will be a total rebuild though. We will probably be seeing more of the same for the next few years to come. just have to get used to it and get on with it.

8.) 19 Apr 2024 12:58:35
Perhaps that’s a key factor as to why there all ex - managers?

9.) 19 Apr 2024 13:04:58
Stevie Wonder can see he needs replacing ?.

10.) 19 Apr 2024 13:35:45
Nobody is saying it’s all his own fault, but that is the usual comeback when his leadership is questioned.

What I'm stating is that his leadership has failed, and until we drop him as captain, we won't know if new leadership will sort this ongoing, longterm issue we have of falling apart season after season. We will only know this once he's been binned, but until then, it's continue on with failure after failure. That can't continue!

To all the Tav backers here, would it not be better to try somebody new to see if it works, than continue on with someone who history, stats, and failure after failure proves is not up to it? C'mon, surely to God you must see we need change?

11.) 19 Apr 2024 13:52:17
No matter the debate, PC is not going to drop Tav or Goldston at this stage of season, but the worry is going forward, as we are all aware they are not good enough and will only be worse next season, so big desicion has to be made if no ocomes in for them, they have to be made aware they will not be starters, so are free to find new clubs.

12.) 19 apr 2024 18:07:37
we need a rangers fan as captain, or a guy like but her who becomes one of us, tav is never ever a captain for me.

Definitely not! The guy just isn't suited to our league, and if we bring him back, he fails again (he will), then we're back to square one. Sell him now while his stock is high in Dutch football.

Cantwell must start? Why? He's been dire! Are we just supposed to expect a performance in the last game of the season from him? Good luck with that one.

I believe he will start, but only because we're not exactly blessed with options. Honestly, what are some seeing in this boy that most don't?

I posted my concerns on Diomonde weeks past, and as usual, there were some who just couldn't take it. Infact, one poster (no names) accused me of throwing my toys out the pram because I expressed an opinion on him. Yip, the poster in question accused me of throwing my toys out while he threw his toys out of his pram, because I raised concerns on the player. He doesn't do well with irony!
