Frank De Boer once again linked with Rangers manager job in Summer.
Excellent with Ajax in the dutch league. Not so good with Inter or Palace. Thoughts on this bears?


1.) 08 Apr 2018 14:30:41
If you look at his stints at inter and palace if think it is a bit unfair to judge him on these 85 days at inter and about same time at palace.
Looking at what he done at ajax a feel he should be judged on this as was not aloud enough time at the other clubs.
If giving time and a decent budget for players i feel deboer would be a good choice and he knows what our club is all about would inforce that to the players he brings in and keeps he brought the best out ajax younsters so hopefully he could do same with our own if brought in

2.) 08 Apr 2018 15:02:28
Im not a fan of a foreign manager for scottish football. Pedro - apparently spent 7/ 8 million and has only one decent signing - Candias. What would Murty do with 7/ 8 million?

3.) 08 Apr 2018 15:12:04
You're correct goalie! We can't gamble with our next managerial appointment! Has to be a manager with an extensive knowledge of british football, if our board do indeed overlook graeme murty! We just cannot afford another experiment going badly wrong!

4.) 08 Apr 2018 15:38:01
Our board has to do what is best for the club if they get this appointment wrong then we are in serious trouble can afford more mistakes.
I understand folk don't want a foreign manager but what i would say in deboer favours is he knows about the club it is not like the pedro situion where they plucked him from no where.

Supercoopereleven what manager do you think we could attract who has an extensive knowledge of british football

5.) 08 Apr 2018 15:54:56
McCoist new about our club!

6.) 08 Apr 2018 16:13:34
Are you seriously comparing mccoist with deboer no comparision there mccoist was in simlair situion as murty throwing in at the deep end at expected to work miracles by the board.
Who do you think should get postion goalie if we do not go with murty.

7.) 08 Apr 2018 16:18:45
Goalie agree I don't like the idea of anothe foreign manager. But Frank knows what this club is about surely we could see him as a Rangers man

8.) 08 Apr 2018 16:34:32
Craig8688, I really can't see past Murty. he's been given an opportunity to manage Rangers which of course he's not going to knock back. He speaks really well and obviously knows the youth development team, which is a bonus. i'd like to see him with a decent budget because i think he has made some decent loan signings.

9.) 08 Apr 2018 16:42:13
McCoist had us 12 clear of Celtic before admin talk began to get serious.

10.) 08 Apr 2018 16:52:24
I don’t believe all this rubbish that Deboer know the club he made seventeen appearances for us he was in the door and out again I’ve spent longer queuing for pies than he was at the club, i'm not convinced about Murty either but the big problem is I don’t have a clue who I’d go for but feel we need a man in the Souness mould as we are in the same position now as we were when he arrived he came in cleared the dead wood out and built a team of winners, he had players who would have killed for three points we now have players who hope for three points

11.) 08 Apr 2018 16:59:52
I starting to be of the mind that perhaps we should not panic here. If an outstanding candidate is not immediately available what is the harm letting Murty lead the troops start of next season until one comes available or he Murty is doing the job. Thoughts gentlemen

12.) 08 Apr 2018 17:00:13
Craig 8688, i must say first and foremost i want murty to be given a chance as our manager beyond this season! Now on to what you asked me! Stevie clarke, steve mcClaren, neil warnock all have extensive knowledge of british football! If we don't give murty the job, then i truly believe that these 3 managers i've mentioned are most definitely gettable!

13.) 08 Apr 2018 17:00:35
Coop, You are saying we can’t take a gamble on the next Manager, but surely Murty is a massive gamble with litterly no experience? 🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧

14.) 08 Apr 2018 17:15:54
Definatley not murty for me regardless of rest of season results we may still be getting some wins but to many droped points and poor performances even in some of the games we have won we have been poor.

Well regardless of deboer knowing the club or not have a look what he done at ajax when allowed time he will also allow us to attract a better standard of player

15.) 08 Apr 2018 17:42:54
Yately i suppose when you take stock every manager is a gamble to an extent mate! I honestly think murty knows the full workings of our club and by gaining experience will only improve to become a good manager IMHO!

16.) 08 Apr 2018 17:52:44
Murty team destroyed Dundee a team who Brenda's mob could not beat. Not saying he should get the position permanent even when he lifts the cup. Still would agree with Craig8688 DeBoer would be the man. But if not should let him carry on as caretaker until we get our man

17.) 08 Apr 2018 18:35:40
People saying they don’t like the idea of a foreign manager but if someone like van bronckhorst was available I’m sure your opinion would change. We do need a safe pair of hands, a no nonsense manager who knows the British market, someone like Neil Warnock or stevie Clark would be well suited to the Gers. Whoever it is they will need significant investment to overhaul the current lot

18.) 08 Apr 2018 18:57:23
You are spot on ronnieR9 who ever gets the job is going have to be giving a lot funds to fix the team
Bronckhorst or deboer would be good choices we need a manager can attract better players and i believe either of these two would be good shout

19.) 08 Apr 2018 19:15:40
Who cares if they struggled against them. We don't care about Brendas mob We should be beating Dundee no bother. We got 4 goals with a poor performance. On another day that could have been another defeat. Murty will get the gig full-time. We don't want risking being made to look like fools again by chasing managers who custard pie us.

20.) 08 Apr 2018 19:33:24
There is no way De Boer should be considered. I would much prefer to keep Murty, last two jobs he's had have been disasters. The style of football he wants teams to play would not suit who we currently have in our squad, I would take Stevie Clarke if he was available to us.

21.) 08 Apr 2018 19:33:59
We don't have the funds to buy descent player's that deboer or bronckhorst could attract. So I would go for Stevie clark . I think he could get more out of what we have. and add a couple good defender's.

22.) 08 Apr 2018 20:24:04
We have been linked with every manager that does well in our leuge and if came to it i would pick murty over them all.
Deboer last two jobs didn't go well cause he didn't get time to do a job

Ifeel him or gio this summer would get this chance to mould there team as there will be funds available from player sales season ticket then the share issue so this is the time to trying attract a new manager and players

23.) 08 Apr 2018 20:25:41
A lot of our supporters i'm seeing on here, are keen on steve clarke to be our new manager! I mentioned further back there, that steve clarke, steve mcClaren and neil warnock could be gettable! In saying that i honestly don't know if steve clarke would take the job, if he was offered it! Why, because of the furore it would cause with some of our own fans with clarke's leanings to celtic as a boy! I ask myself would clarke want all that and put himself through all that! I honestly don't know!

24.) 08 Apr 2018 21:42:10
Warnock would be standout from the the people u mentioned is the only one that has succeed in england and knows the market well he is the only one a would a would have instead of murty or deboer or gio.

Clark didn't do so well down south and at our club he would have to adapt to more attacking role as teams sit in against us so we have to break them down and killie he is mainly defensive.
so would only replace murty
With warnock gio or deboer if not may aswell give murty a chance see if he can improve him self and some of these players i worry bout him beeing able to attract players that can take us up a level tho

25.) 08 Apr 2018 21:53:03
Murty will not get the gig full time! Mr king might not be everybody’s cup of tea but he knows the importance of stopping that lot winning ten in a row and keeping Murty would more or less guarantee that that happens!

26.) 08 Apr 2018 22:42:58
murty is not the man for me tactically naïve and lost far to many points against teams we should be beating even with current squad.

I agree we need someone smith souness esque, with the lack of candidates out there we may need to think outside the box a bit. we missed the boat on rino guttuso easy to say that now with the job he's doing at milan.
whats the thoughts on mikel arteta? learning from the best at man city, ex player, knows the british game, will know of some fantastic prospects at city and arsenal. it would be a great first job for him and I feel we could get him over the line.

a bit off topic after seeing kyle Bartley head to head with that wee rodent james mclean in the paper today I would love him back at Ibrox ecaxtly the type of player we need.

27.) 08 Apr 2018 22:34:28
I doubt he would take it he is a Saltcoats lad and all his family are Celtic minded would he put them through all the rubbish that would follow it no I think he’ll head back south.

28.) 08 Apr 2018 23:22:11
Bang on Yately.

There is not a single manager that ticks every single box for what we are looking for, every name linked has pro's and con's. But if we are calling a man who won four titles in Holland a risk, then an U20 coach who has won the square root of nothing and hasn't even had a manager job before is most certainly a risk too.

29.) 09 Apr 2018 02:35:03
Can't remember who posted a couple of days ago, he mentioned Rafa Benitaz. Has taken Newcastle to 10th in the EPL after a poor start, managed top clubs in England, so knows the British game. If new investment comes in, break the bank to get a top class manager in place.

30.) 09 Apr 2018 11:10:12
There is absolutely NO chance Benitez will manage Rangers. Whoever posted that has a glue problem

31.) 09 Apr 2018 18:49:20
Craig8688, Clarke got WBA 8th place in his only full season down there, beating Brenda's Liverpool home and away in the process, and won everything as Mourinho's assistant at Chelsea (1st stint), so not sure how you can say he wasn't a success down there. It was more than Walter ever achieved down there, speaking of Walter he played a very defensive game too but got results, much as Clarke does. As Coops points out he may not be interested, but the board will have sounded him out by now. I'd take Warnock as my next pick. For me Gio and FDB are exciting but more risky and would take more time to implement their style.



31 Mar 2018 21:51:47
The board won't sack murty until the seasons over even if he loses all the remaining games. The plan is to bring in an experienced coach in the summer.


1.) 31 Mar 2018 23:35:03
Personally I think they will keep murty as he's a cheap option especially after announcing loans off £17.7 m and also a loss off £1.2 m .

2.) 01 Apr 2018 01:31:51
King has already explained why we are in debt and also the difference the new kit deal and kit sales will make in the coming years as we are still paying for the way we where ran when whyte was in charge and green this board are playing this very well at the moment and if u disagree the that s your right but we will see in 5 years

3.) 01 Apr 2018 10:00:44
Morning bears what does my nut it about murty is the fact he can't change a game doesn't no who to use his subs yes he made a forced sub yesterday but if no for a fact that if windass didn't get injured he would never have made a sub a fear the worst in the run in to end of season and this semi the board need to let fans no soon as renewal will be up ahead and it's goat to be spot on from the word go

4.) 01 Apr 2018 12:49:32
Stirling, no one has to explain why Rangers are in debt as it is very simple. The reason your club are in debt is because they spend more than they make, i. e. you are a loss making entity.

With regards to the current retail deal, none of us know what it is and Dave King is a proven liar so his words can't be trusted. When the old deal was allegedley scrapped Dave King told everyone that Rangers ripped up the contract but later we found out that he had paid Ashley 3 million pound, so what else did he not tell us?

By the way even the best possible retail deal will not reverse your fortunes as that will only bring about 4 million profit extra a season and you are already having to borrow more than that to balance the books.

You are probably not aware but if you read the last set of audited accounts for Rangers you will know that Rangers currently owe over 41 million in loans, half of which are soft loans to the current directors and the other half are third party loans. This figure does not include the 3 million secured loan from Close Brothers or any money Dave King said he would pump in this season, circa 4.5 million. If you add these amounts to the last known debt level, the current debt is close to 50 million.

You don't have to be a financial wizard to know that Rangers' can't continually spend more than they make or they will reach a point where they cannot meet payments when they are due. At the moment Rangers revenue for next season has already taken a 4 million hit because of the close brother loan repayment, which will be paid using next season's season ticket money. This means borrowing will increase next season, unless Rangers can find a new revenue stream, which is unlikely.

A word of advice for everyone, is don't trust a word Dave King says, as his list of lies are extensive. Only last summer he told the Rangers fans to buy season tickets and that all proceeds would go to buying players. However, he later stated that the summer signings were financed by loans from current directors. Then recently we found out that Rangers only spent 3.5 million last summer, which is no were near the amount brought in from season ticket sales.

7.) 01 Apr 2018 18:16:21
Do you know as much about your own club? I know nothing about the mob other than I can smell them before I see them

8.) 01 Apr 2018 18:50:25
Rodgers, Rangers are already in trouble, but sorry Rangers supporters won't accept what you say although if they checked up as I did on what you said it is true. if this continues sadly, this time it will be the end of Rangers after only 5-6 year history

9.) 02 Apr 2018 09:29:43
Good to see you 'checked up on facts' shame you didn't check the facts before the boring old line about us being 5 years old. Here is one for you hibsboy, the crowning glory of your club is one scottish cup win in 100 odd years that you celebrate like you won the champions league.

you support an irrelevant, provisional club that no one outside a single Edinburgh post code cares about. you support a team that could exist for the next 200 years and have no chance of ever winning the league and will forever live off hand downs and cast offs off your Glasgow chums. so in all fairness don't be surprised that no rangers fan is ever going to value what you say in the slightest.

10.) 02 Apr 2018 09:27:39
hibsboy, come back when you can put together a coherent sentence.

11.) 02 Apr 2018 12:50:41
Thank goodness we've got rodgersatwork to explain things to us! . Can't imagine what it is like to have to go on a rivals rumour page and spend time and effort writing a lot of nonsense to find some kind pleasure. Sad

12.) 02 Apr 2018 16:43:09
I can assure you that everything I have said is true and I know if it wasn't, then Union Jack would have been pointing out the errors.

As they say, you can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink. Therefore, it is up to you if you wish to ignore the truth.

13.) 02 Apr 2018 21:50:53
Snell at least we have won a major trophy more than than the rangers have lol ggtth



31 Mar 2018 21:47:47
For whatever reason the players don't have the bottle to play for Rangers. They didn't turn up in the 1st half. We got bullied. 2nd half was better but it falls short of what is expected at Rangers. We need to get our recruitment right in the summer. Is it the manager or the players or both. How do we fix it? When you look at our squad did you ever think they were capable of winning the league?


1.) 31 Mar 2018 23:36:49
Rangers will never win this league for at least another 5 years they just don't have the backing or the same money and king has a lot to answer to as he's not helped rangers 1 bit x

2.) 01 Apr 2018 01:43:01
Hibsboy away talk pish mate we are still paying for what happened under previous owners i. e. Kit deals and merchandise with these things now coming into our favour instead of Ashley we will see the rewards but I do agree that it will be at least two more years of shi t till we get it right

3.) 01 Apr 2018 11:47:53
five years would hurt a lot hibsboy, still better than never to be fair

4.) 01 Apr 2018 15:27:32
With the amount invested in players and coach in the summer (regardless of us making an arse of yet another recruitment window) we should have at least challenged this year. We spent more than anyone else did and i hate to keep saying the same things but we are deluded to think things are going to be ok in 2 years. We would need a sugar daddy for that and they ain't looking at us. The Dhims have gone backwards and nobody fears glasgow rangers anymore we are to soft and an easier scalp than we have ever been especially at home. To many soft arses who go missing and centre halfs that would lose in a foot race with big belly Boyd.



09 Feb 2018 20:06:53
What a shambles the SFA are. If you have a chance to hire sir Walter smith as manager you take it. don't mess about; Idiots. We need a root and branch clear out start again get football men in there. Dougleish and souness, sort it out.

Ryan Jack and Jordan Rossitor took part in a first team training session today.


1.) 22 Jan 2018 18:10:59
I'd love Rossiter to work out been impressed from the little I've seen since he's hardly featured through injury.
But he's got something.

2.) 22 Jan 2018 18:17:58
Agreed. He looks a cracking player in the slim glimpses we’ve had of him

3.) 22 Jan 2018 19:26:19
Great if Jack fit to play against the sheep tomorrow night. Thought he had been ruled out.

4.) 22 Jan 2018 19:48:59
The photo that's kicking about with Jack and Rossiter training is an old photo I believe. The squad trained at Auchenhowie today but the photo is at Ibrox.

5.) 22 Jan 2018 19:58:23
The photo is on the official Rangers website

6.) 22 Jan 2018 20:31:59
Unless the injured players were training at Ibrox but can't see it when the rest of the squad are training at Auchenhowie and we have a game at Ibrox in a few days. might be wrong tho.

7.) 22 Jan 2018 21:18:51
Jack and McCrorie both to see a specialist tomorrow to get definitive recovery timescales on both their injuries.
Rossiter back training today with no timescale places other than Murty being hopeful he will get to see him involved before the season concludes.

8.) 22 Jan 2018 21:28:16
Glad rossiter back in training, hopefully stay fit and not another false dawn, he's the best midfielder we have, will be like a new signing.

9.) 23 Jan 2018 12:08:01
what is all this praise about rossiter based on

does anyone actually know?

Russell martin should be hooked at half time the number of goals he has costs us this season for an experienced international is riddiculus - bring on alves! Murty got the team setup wrong should have been brave and went 4231 and attacked instead we invited them onto us and its cost us 45 minutes of pure shite 0 shots on target or attempts.


1.) 15 Apr 2018 15:53:55
Totally agree, Martin is simply not good enough for Rangers. Infact who is after that performance. Can anyone pick out a Rangers player who gave his all today? Heres a question, why was Halliday and Candias raging when substituted? Did they think they were having a great game? A total embarrassment!

2.) 15 Apr 2018 16:05:36
Why are they raging because murty is clueless and they no it after this performance murty should absoulte shocking manager



14 Apr 2018 12:02:22
With Motherwell playing today my question is this - can you bet on a player being injured?


1.) 14 Apr 2018 13:11:43
Murderwell are the hatchet men of the league so odds would be short mate

2.) 14 Apr 2018 13:51:21
Tell you one thing - if we can't beat this sheep team to second place we don't deserve anything from this season. They are absolute crap



07 Apr 2018 14:18:32
Just seen the line up I knew he would play miller instead of cummings. I agree with mcrorie back in defence but what does that say about Alves is he finished? Good team we should win.


1.) 07 Apr 2018 14:24:17
if you're jason cummings you must be wondering why a 39 year old who hasn't played for a while is getting picked ahead of you. Alves was finished when he arrived

2.) 07 Apr 2018 14:27:37
Totally agree about Miller, absolute joke. Just send Cummings back to forest now if you’re not going to play him

3.) 07 Apr 2018 15:33:23
To his credit, he's 38 and not 39 but well past his best now. He's got a fan base second to none here but if I was Cummings I wouldn't be happy. Wrong call by Murty.

4.) 07 Apr 2018 15:43:44
At least Miller scores

5.) 07 Apr 2018 16:04:13

6.) 07 Apr 2018 16:37:30
I think he's gave miller the nod as his old firm experience will be needed if windass out not a bad shout tbh though cummings won't be happy

7.) 07 Apr 2018 18:21:22
RTID your spot on with that comment kenny loves to score against them.



07 Apr 2018 09:57:06
All the pressure is on us today. If we win our seasons back on track. If we beat Dundee a side smeltic recently only drew with could give the players confidence going into the cup semi?


1.) 07 Apr 2018 10:27:42
Spot on RfcChris. There is also a chance that Hearts might take points off the Sheep and Ross County must be on a high after winning 4-0 during the week so might beat Lemon teeth's lot. Could be back in 2nd tonight.

2.) 07 Apr 2018 11:31:30
all good points but can't wait for the day that we have to rely on other teams results



05 Apr 2018 21:36:26
We should model our play and style of football after Athletico madrid really good team to watch.


1.) 06 Apr 2018 07:12:12
i’ve been a huge fan of athletico for years chris

id sell murray park just for the chance to get simeone in!

can you imagine .

Looks like a simple 442 everyone working hard for each other.

3.) 06 Apr 2018 15:24:36
Atletico are a great team but there not shy kicking the c**p out of there opposition and blatant diving, not attributes I would like our club to adopt. Great squad of players though.

4.) 06 Apr 2018 16:30:03
I'd take those attributes rather than to meekly get beat, run off the park by poor teams like Motherwell, Kilmarnock, Dundee, Hamilton!

TJBB and supercoop I agree. I was really impressed with what he was saying and he's bang on he can be a tactical master and put on the best training and prep but once the players cross the white line its upto them. They need to take responsibility. i'm not saying he's the long term answer but he understands better than pedro "dogs bark and caravans go on" or warbs "we go away train come back better" he speaks like a fan and he talks like he cares. 100 % could be a great manager for us but he needs to get the players all working hard for the final games of the season. 2nd place and the cup is still on. Also its not really his players he's only had 1 transfer window.

The refereeing was poor again. 1st minute the Aberdeen boy got an elbow in the back of the head should have been a red. The 1st goal the motherwell boy controlled the ball with his hand before crossing and then there was a foul on the defender before the 2nd goal. It seems scottish refs allow motherwell to play dirty.
