Hearing from a neighbour who has been sent a text from his best pal. He says the pal lives next door to Graham Shinnie and he has maintained he has signed a pre contract with us. Don't shoot the messenger guys, just passing on what i've heard.


{Ed033's Note - His best pal doesn't wear a suit does he? :)

1.) 01 Jan 2019 23:37:25

I trust you. You are a Bear without doubt. Was your neighbour lip reading?

I need to know.

2.) 02 Jan 2019 06:55:41
Ha ha, maybe i dreamt this, coolatballet! Hope so as I don't rate Shinnie. Waa he not on our books as a youngster?

3.) 02 Jan 2019 09:16:08
Always says shinnie would be a good signing! But with the number of centre midfielders at us just now it looks unlikely. I can't see us buying coulibaly in summer so maybe happen. Again when we signed Ryan Jack everyone says he wasnt good enough. shinnie would be a good signing.

4.) 02 Jan 2019 09:19:04
Are you allowed to sign a pre contract for a club in the same country? 🇬🇧.

5.) 02 Jan 2019 09:35:23
Not sure Yately. I thought we had done this before but can't recall who it was for. Or maybe it was Ryan Jack? Did we not sign him on a pre contract?

6.) 02 Jan 2019 09:39:31
Yes, I'm certain you are yately1.

7.) 02 Jan 2019 09:52:30
Think it depends on what country you are in. We signed Jack on a pre contract did we not? Or maybe it was because the window had closed.

8.) 02 Jan 2019 12:18:56
Rite bears if there was 3 signing thro the door in Jan who would u want mine Davis, shanklands worth a punt, and last Alan Hutton.

9.) 02 Jan 2019 12:43:42
You can sign pre contract with anyone. Only thing the same country signing is if they are under 23 for the development compensation. Its higher if player plays in same country but cheaper if say we got youngster on pre contract from England.

10.) 02 Jan 2019 13:39:56
we had Andrew Shinnie don't think Graham.

11.) 02 Jan 2019 13:40:22
they are brothers.

12.) 02 Jan 2019 14:34:37
Aye Deeb, googled it earlier!



06 Apr 2017 22:42:47
I'm hearing from a reliable source that MOH is absolutely hating life at Rangers and can't wait to leave. Also, the players in general are not enamoured with PC or his training methods.

Apparently during one session he was advising them to "caress the ball". Nobody had an idea as to what he was on about!
Funnily enough I heard his after match comments the other night and for the life of me I didn't know what he was talking about. Worrying times.


1.) 06 Apr 2017 23:39:04
Because he has been found out for being the avarage at best player he is pace and nothing else

2.) 07 Apr 2017 00:51:49
Need to suck it up and get on with it if they aren't happy tough the fans have had 5 years of it being tough and soldierd on as for MOH if he isn't happy bolt won't be missed.

3.) 07 Apr 2017 08:02:18
A first touch like nacho novo, brutal!

4.) 07 Apr 2017 09:05:48
"Caress the ball" means look after the ball, good touch, find a team mate, you know the basics of a good footballer. the players should start listening to Pedro rather moaning! The extra Wednesday training session should be spent on hitting the target our poor goal return is why we are so far off the pace.

5.) 07 Apr 2017 10:53:15
Ohh a coach with some actual ideas who doesn't want to hump it beyond the fullbacks like your normal Scottish coaches. No wonder our players are getting a shock. They done it to PLG and they will try to do it to PC but our club needs to be modernised.

6.) 07 Apr 2017 11:23:58
Yeah caress it, look after it, keep it, hold onto it, control it. Can't do any of the above and don't understand what the manager is talking about. Doesn't surprise me one bit. Team full of 3rd division players wanting to play kick and rush because they got found out this year

7.) 07 Apr 2017 14:07:03
If that's the case maybe they should spend the extra day on Wednesday doing some english lessons as it's quite simple to understand what is meant by "caress the ball". Sounds more like players are either thick or acting facetious.

8.) 07 Apr 2017 12:56:45
Jim Baxter, Pele and George Best all talked about caressing the ball, but you're saying the players don't understand what it means? And maybe MOH hates it because he's not up to it, he's been found out as someone who couldn't caress the ball if his life depended on it. Funny, most players have been reported elsewhere as really enjoying the training sessions, but obviously it's a rumours site so you can say the first thing that comes into your head.

9.) 07 Apr 2017 13:22:13
I will drive him or any other of the bang average players we have on our books to whichever team in the uk they "think" will want to employ them, only Foderingham and the youngsters excluded from that!

10.) 07 Apr 2017 13:24:13
Could be something in it as anytime I have seen footage of them in training the players have looked a bit non plussed when Pedro has been talking to them, not much to go on I know but wouldn't surprise me all the same.

11.) 07 Apr 2017 13:28:51
Both MCKay and Ohalloran are major under achievers at rangers principally because they both have ability but for whatever reason don't produce often enough. In O'haaloran's case he hasn't produced since joining the club. They can both go. Get some decent cash for them and march on.

12.) 07 Apr 2017 13:38:34
Well said Reidy09, its not exactly rocket science and if a pro footballer doesn't no what that means we really are in trouble. and as for MOH, i'm absolutely hating him being in the squad.

13.) 07 Apr 2017 13:41:28
Why not say hold it, pass it, play it. Keep it simple. Always the best way. Obviously not for the football managers on here.

14.) 07 Apr 2017 15:07:46
They don't understand 1 word and you want to replace it with 4. still think they won't get it as they just don't care nor want to buy in as they are use to the easy holiday camp they had under the bread man and going back to mccoist times as well.

15.) 07 Apr 2017 15:57:31
Seeker, how do you know he doesn't use these terms as well? Hold it, pass it, play it, nothing there about touch and control, which is what real players understand by 'caressing' the ball.

16.) 07 Apr 2017 22:53:33
Wait and see what caressing the ball will mean to Pedro when he listens to 50,000 bears baying for his blood. I just have a really bad feeling guys. I hope to god I'm wrong please believe me. I always try and remain positive but I just can't shake the feeling. And btw wee ecky I didn't make up the post. It's what I've heard from someone close to MOH. Maybe someone will bail me out?

17.) 08 Apr 2017 13:32:39
MOH has been a major disappointment since joining us, McKay plays one good game in five, Halliday, Waghorn and Kieran haven't had a decent game in the Top league. Personally this would be the first bunch I would target to offload and hopefully secure some transfer fees on.
Problem is that you then need five replacements plus replacements for the three at the end of their contracts and that means that Pedro needs to sign eight quality players jut to stand still albeit with a better quality of player.
To secure the quality required we need to find some real gems at relatively low cost or we just continue on the downward spiral that we have been on for years.



25 Jan 2017 18:29:46
Just heard Ryan Christie thinks he is going to the second biggest club in Scotland in a loan deal with the sheep. I think it's a right slap in the face to his parent club, rating them only third biggest.


1.) 25 Jan 2017 21:58:13
his popularity ratings will be through the roof with both sides lol.

2.) 25 Jan 2017 23:08:57
Could be worse seeker, could be going to the 3rd biggest team in Glasgow, yourselves.

3.) 25 Jan 2017 23:57:17
Some people have very short memories and selective memories at that!

4.) 26 Jan 2017 00:10:52
Ha ha Bhampot! I knew you couldn't resist! Obviously as a fan of the world's most successful club, I will disagree with you.

Can you imagine the abuse big Eck would have received from the tartan trannies? Its a good job he managed to negotiate a play off place whatever happens as this lot will be lucky to finish mid table! Absolutely pissing myself tbh!


1.) 09 Sep 2019 20:20:16
They will be lucky if they don’t get pumped 5 or 6 😜.

2.) 10 Sep 2019 01:14:42
Clarke believing his own hype me thinks . a few good results on a right dodgy pitch and he was a master tactician. Take away the plastic and it’s there for all to see . can’t see Scotland rising above 2nd bottom. oh dearb.



25 Aug 2019 14:53:55
Personally I couldn't care less about Scotland but if Ryan Jack isn't selected for the upcoming squad it would be both a travesty and a clear pointer as to what direction the national team is going. The best midfielder in Scotland by some distance at the moment.
On another note should we expect a fine and an empty stadium when the report from the delegate at the home tie against the Danish team comes in? Just wondering!


1.) 25 Aug 2019 17:06:48
Here here seeker! There isn't a better midfielder in the country, than ryan jack at the moment. Yet again the motm today by a distance. Easily the best player on the park. This guy without question is a future captain, of the famous glasgow rangers.

2.) 25 Aug 2019 23:59:06
Every chance you get coop you add future captain 👍.



24 Aug 2019 12:44:07
Waggy on target again for Derby. Quality player, always liked him. Stevie G reckons he is a 9m player. Hard to argue with his assessment. Who thinks Waggy would have scored goals in our present team? I do.
Nice to see him doing well. Met him once when out with my daughter. She was a bit star struck as he was her favourite player. He did the whole selfie and autograph bit no problem . A very decent lad who still loves The Rangers.


1.) 24 Aug 2019 14:19:37
He was unlucky to be at the club at the wrong time. It happens.

2.) 24 Aug 2019 14:56:32
Not what we need, hopeless first time around and has done nothing to prove that he would be better next time around. He was punted for a reason, not good enough👍.

3.) 24 Aug 2019 15:40:00
Waggy not the standard we require.
See boy Kelly doing well at Ayr.

4.) 24 Aug 2019 17:24:51
He scored 27 goals in 57 appearances for us, albeit at lower levels, hardly a poor player, would like to have seen him in the SPL to see how he would do. He hit a quiet patch before he left so everyone craps on him.

5.) 24 Aug 2019 18:09:33
How many goals has waghorn scored in open play down there.

6.) 24 Aug 2019 19:07:41
Lawrence Shankland banging them in again. He scored another 2 for dundee utd today. that's something like 7 goals in 3 games.

7.) 24 Aug 2019 20:52:42
Let’s go buy Shankland, I’m sure we could get him for 5 million.
Sg loyal he is playing in championship and not even close to standard we need.

8.) 24 Aug 2019 21:08:26
Micheal Moffat is a good mate of mine. Met him s few days ago and asked him about young kelly, says he's some talent.

9.) 25 Aug 2019 10:47:05
Ok Coldo, I'll take your opinion over the manager's. Not! 👍.



23 Aug 2019 08:22:17
Just a quick one to express sadness at the plight of Bury FC. We Rangers fans know only too well what the fans are going through. It is just horrible but hopefully their FA will do everything to try and help them through the crisis, unlike ours. We played them pre season last year and the fans were a great bunch who enjoyed their experience.


1.) 23 Aug 2019 09:47:08
Did we not play them this pre season too actually?

2.) 23 Aug 2019 09:52:55
Yea agreed mate. Looks like the FA are flinging them under the bus, similar to what the SFA done to us.

Will be interesting who else goes under down there, especially clubs who have been in the Premier League but not made it back up straight away. It happened to Leeds who just about survived but Bolton, Sunderland, Wigan, Ipswich (clubs like that) need to be very careful.

Part of me would love to see the SKY or BT deal collapse just to see how the bigger clubs would react as these mega companies have flung money at the Premier League and effective ruined football.

3.) 23 Aug 2019 10:58:08
We are behind you Bury FC 🤝.

4.) 23 Aug 2019 11:18:07
Good point about the TV deals shenderson. I see Amazon Prime are to screen about 20 live EPL games this season and could challenge Sky and BT soon. These top clubs who pay ridiculous wages to overrated players would be in serious trouble without the Sky and BT money.

5.) 23 Aug 2019 11:32:32
Regarding the Bury situation. Imo the English FA are doing what the SFA should have done with us re whyte sale. I'm no expert but what I think is happening is Burys owner has recieved an offer/ offers for the club. The FA have said that the individual need to pass their fit a proper owner criteria b4 any deal can go through. I think the FA are concerned re the individual that wants to buy the club.
I also think their is other gen offers for less money on the table that the owner is refusing to accept, hence the unrest between the owner and the supporters.

So basically the owner is blaming the FA for holding up the deal.

{Ed001's Note - sorry mate you are miles off. The FA are not involved for one. This is between the EFL and Dale. The hold up is that he simply does not have the funds to keep the club going until the end of the season and so cannot provide the necessary guarantees that the club will be able to complete the league programme. The EFL are simply waiting for him to provide that or sell to someone else who can.}

6.) 23 Aug 2019 11:55:00
Ed I watched an interview on SS from the owner, who stated he wanted to sell and that he had recieved offers but the EFL where holding it up. They then went on to interview the lady the represents the EFL. She stated that the individual offers need to be looked at as they need to pass their fit and proper criteria. So in one hand the EFL are asking for a Guarantee of funds, which the owners isn't willing to provide as he wants to sell and on the other hand the EFL won't sanction the sale which if it went through would guarantee the funds.
Hence why they are asking for the rules to change in situations like this.

I maybe completely wrong, but that's what I took from the interviews.

{Ed001's Note - he is lying. Dale has rejected offers, despite buying the club for a pound, because they were not offering him enough money to buy the club. There were four offers on the table just yesterday which he had rejected out of hand 3 of them. The supporters club were thrown out of the club when they approached him about buying the club via a supporters trust. There is one thing stopping Bury right now and it is Dale. Just him and only him.}

7.) 23 Aug 2019 12:32:56
Yeah he prob is lying but he is using the existing rules of EFL to try and justify his lies.
Hence why they are asking for the rules to change.

In his interview dale stated that he wanted to sell but the fit and proper rule will hold up any sale.

ATM there is only one concrete offer on the table but Dale wants a million for a club he paid a pound for and the individual that has made the offer isn't willing to pay that.

Dale is in the same bracket as guys like Ashley. Ie only interested in money and it looks like they guy who has tabled the offer is the same. So I think the EFL are correct in saying that any new owner will need to pass their criteria.

Initially I was replying to 87hend post that the FA where doing what the SFA had done to us. I was trying to point out that had the SFA applied the fit a proper test the EFL have to Whyte purchase then things could have turned out different for our team.

{Ed001's Note - you are correct there, I have to agree the SFA let Rangers fans down badly.}

8.) 23 Aug 2019 13:12:23
I agree with you Stewart’s regarding fit and proper testing!



22 Aug 2019 22:55:45
I know I keep banging on about him but how good was Ryan Jack again tonight? Reminds me so much of wee Barry as he bossed the midfield. A quality footballer who just keeps getting better and better. Easily the MOTM tonight.


1.) 23 Aug 2019 09:03:51
All three centre midfielders i felt were good against legia warsaw last night mate. I totally agree with you that ryan jack has improved so much since gerrard came in and is now one of the first names in our starting 11.He's blossomed into a cracking,
complete midfielder. But my man of the match last night was steven davis. Everything good we do comes through davo. He's our playmaker and pull the strings for us in the anchor, midfield role. He's the puppet master. You can see davo's class and the high level he's played at throughout his wonderful career! I say all the time, he's that good that you couldn't get the ball off him, in a phone box. Never panics or gets flustered when the ball arrives to him in tight areas, with opposition players all around him.

2.) 23 Aug 2019 09:56:40
I’m eating humble pie here, especially towards you Coop because I have you (and others) a bit of a hard time regarding Steve Davis. I said he was to old, not the same player etc etc.
Well, I was wrong and if anything the older he has become the better football he has become due to using his brain more and letting the other guys (Jack, Arfield) do the running.
Last night Ryan Jack was sensational, 100% the next captain! He does all the leg work, all the donkey running and gives the ball to the better players! For me. the best sitting midfielder in Scotland! Streets ahead of Scott Brown who has been excellent for them over the years.

3.) 23 Aug 2019 10:19:34
Think the midfield is settled now as much as i like Kamara he's not quite same level as the rest. Ver very decent sub/ back up to come on. or step in if injuries etc.

4.) 23 Aug 2019 11:48:29
Jack was great but let’s not be comparing him to Barry, who is the best Scottish player of the last 25 years by a distance.

5.) 23 Aug 2019 12:07:42
I agree with that statement wholeheartedly Theswagman. Without doubt barry ferguson WAS the best scottish midfielder of the last quarter of a century!

6.) 23 Aug 2019 13:49:41
Fair doos 87shenderson at least you're honest pal. Totally appreciate that mate.

Only 30, premiership winner in 2016 and a tidy player. Stevie wanted 2 players for each position in the midfield and now has that. Long hard season ahead, what's not to like? And the fact that Rodgers loaned him to a (in his words) "fantastic club" is also a plus as it winds up the gargoyles 😁😁.

To be fair Stewarty is just highlighting the stupidity of a minority of fans singing about religion when he thinks our manager is one of those they are singing about. He isn't, not that it makes any difference.
It really is time we got out of the dark ages with this. UEFA are right on our case and it won't be long before Petrie and Lawwell convince the SFA committee to crack down on it. At the mpment their powers are limited but that will change. And guess who will get the book flung at them?

Ryan Jack was immense, again! My motm as well, coops. And maybe BB's performance will sway most of the doubters. Thought he has been excellent the past 2 games.
