HITC reporting we are interested in Joe Garner 28yr old who plays for Preston North End. Used to be at Watford with Hodson apparently so that is where the tedious link has come from. usual ex watford noise. Wigna have scouted him and he is apparently rated at 1mill.


1.) 25 Jul 2016 10:22:09
Want a better striker than Joe garner sake man.

2.) 25 Jul 2016 11:10:26
Joe garner would be a sensation up here. Probably out of our price range though.

3.) 25 Jul 2016 12:36:13
Whoever the gaffer signs that will do me, because he certainly knows a player.

4.) 25 Jul 2016 17:56:55
joe garner was at nottingham forest for a few seasons and didn't really do well but he did do well at preston in league 1,to be fair to him always worked hard and gets stuck in, could be worth a punt for the right money.

5.) 25 Jul 2016 18:46:47
6 goals in 41 games last season.



09 May 2016 07:27:06
So a refresh on some possible targets and their sources:

Jordan Rossiter- Looks like this is picking up steam!
Danny Graham - a lot of paper talk, but lots of clubs in for him
Paulus Arajuuri - Saw this on the Glasgow Rangers FC FB page. Giant Finnish CB, 27yrs old and plays for Lech Poznan. never heard of him myself
Matthew Knox - I expect this one to be wrapped up now they are confirmed as relegated
Ben Pringle - Seems to have gone quiet?


1.) 09 May 2016 11:43:26
Arajuuri would be great, had a fantastic last season for Lech.

2.) 09 May 2016 12:29:35
Does anyone know what's happening with Daniel Bentley the Southend keeper?

3.) 09 May 2016 08:13:10
Paulus Arajuuri to Rangers article




20 Apr 2016 09:39:44
So it seems that we will be having a £5 million transfer kitty for next season! According to the daily mail



1.) 20 Apr 2016 19:01:12
They're wrong. The manager's budget, as I posted here last week, will increase by £4.8m but that will include transfer fees, wages and agent fees. Four players at £10k a week and half of that's away, plus signing on money and agent's cuts and there's precious little left for transfer fees. The only other income will be the wages saved on those leaving, which could be between £30-35k a week. As I said before, there are a lot of juicy Bosmans out there and I'm certain Warbs will find the cream.

2.) 20 Apr 2016 20:07:15
Was going to say the same as wee-ecky. certain members in the press like to exagerate so the fans will then turn when 'promised' funds/ players etc aren't met.

3.) 20 Apr 2016 21:34:42
Teddy that would be a good kitty, considering what mw done with 400 grand,

4.) 23 Apr 2016 15:58:39
What did he do with £400k? That money didn't include wages, signing on fees, agents fees etc. His total playing budget right now, including staff etc, is in excess of £11m. He's only getting another £4.8m added to that to attract platers for the SPL and, hopefully, Europe. It really isn't a good kitty at all, but at least we have the right man to use it wisely. To put it into perspective, just one £2m player would account for all of that additional budget when you add on wages and other fees.



20 Apr 2016 09:43:39
Sorry Posted a link to the mail mail article about the 5mill transfer kitty and it also mentions that we are after 25yr old Barnsley captain Conor Hourihane. Truth be told I have never heard of the lad.


1.) 20 Apr 2016 13:35:36
I doubt Conor will be joining Rangers. He doesn't like our club very much.

2.) 21 Apr 2016 00:58:39
Just saw his "Rangers scum" tweets. Can't see this one happening folks.



12 Jan 2016 08:37:11
On STV today that the Aberdeen are interested in taking Cammy Bell on loan. Looks like we have rejected and probably (Although It didn't mentioned it so I am speculating) we are looking for a permanent deal.

27 Apr 2020 18:21:13
Ok i need to get this off my chest. I am getting really frustrated with the lack of young Scottish players we are seeing. What exactly did Middleton do? Ross McCrorie can cover 3 different positions and played CB and CDM for us very well. then shipped out on Loan.

When Robby McCrorie was 17 every club in Europe wanted to buy him. Sent out on loan to be player of the year in league 2/ league 1 and then finally half a season in the championship and then the SPL. Still hasn't a hope with us though has he!? Kai Kennedy, wanted by Roma and Man City.

Nah we will play Ryan Kent, wanted by. us, just us. Glenn Middleton, Jack Hastie, Stephen Kelly, Dapo Mebude, Sergei Atakayi. Nah let's get Ojo in on loan from Liverpool instead. He's not doing it so let's get Hagi in. hmm let's try Aribo. ARE YOU KIDDING ME. GREG STEWART! Greg. Stewart. My mind can't fathom why all of the kids in our development teams, who are now highly rated and sought after in Europe. are not getting game time in the SPL.


1.) 27 Apr 2020 21:04:12
Any of the young boys good enough will get an opportunity. Certainly expect Ross McCrorie to be back and in first team squad next season. Would love a few others to press for inclusion but they need to step up and make a claim.

2.) 27 Apr 2020 21:20:09
Johnstone Parlane teenagers Johnstone scored winner in league cup final against manky mob, if your good enough your old enough, Nice One Dereks.

3.) 27 Apr 2020 21:35:12
Derek Johnstone Derek Parlane were teenagers scoring for fun Johnstone getting winner in league cup final against the manky mob, if your good enough your old enough, Nice One Dereks.

4.) 28 Apr 2020 06:44:14
Different era now. Young players get loaned out 1st like a young allan mcgregor did . the mcrorie bros will be part of the squad. middleton i feel is another greg wylde.

5.) 28 Apr 2020 11:01:58
This gets me as well, young players need game time at the highest level, we won't give them a chance. Stevie you are the best but give the young 'uns a shot.

6.) 28 Apr 2020 11:22:47
Peter, I agree, but will Stevie give them a shot in case it backfires and he gets sacked. A more experience Manager would have drip fed them into the team over a period of time.

7.) 28 Apr 2020 13:43:35
irvger, you mean like all the ones brought through by Walter Smith? Most of the lads mentioned above will never be good enough, but the McCrories will feature as will Kennedy when he is ready. None of the others will make it in a Rangers jersey as any observer of youth football will tell you.
Of any youth team, at Rangers or any other big club, one in about 300 will turn out to be a Barry Ferguson. 0ne in 100 will feature for the club, one in ten will make a living somewhere lower and the rest just won't make it.
And before people start whining 'why take them on in the first place? ' you need a squad at any level, even under 8's, to play a team game and historically these squads are made up of the talented, the hopefuls and the rest. Always was.

8.) 28 Apr 2020 15:22:21
So did you feel Ross McCrorie isn't good enough? Was Nathan Patterson not the standout performer in the 1 game he played? Is Ojo / Barker good enough?

I want your statement to be true, but the facts are clear. Why else would West Ham be wanting Robbie McCrorie now? Why would Man City want Kai Kennedy? Why did every man and his dog want their hands on young Leon King?

Exactly what do these young scottish players need to be good enough for?



28 Oct 2018 18:42:14
I've been dithering coming back on here for a few months if I'm honest but watching that crap has seriously annoyed me. How on earth is Ejaria/ Coulibaly/ Candieas getting picked when they are literal workhorses. Ejaria is not a starter in this team, creates nothing, look rangey and like he's got all time in the world. but he offers literally NOTHING. Kent can't put a ball in the box and candieas for all his enterprise couldn't finish in a brothel. His decision making (bar that one through ball to Kent) was horrific. Tavs was majorly off it tonight as well. His deadball crosses seem to become dreadful in big games like this. I'm actually fuming as you can probably tell. Can't believe I say through 90mins of that to see us get 1 shot on target!


1.) 28 Oct 2018 18:48:17
Spot on mate Coulibaly has been a big disappointment time he dropped out, a creative midfielder and striker are a most in January.

2.) 28 Oct 2018 18:59:43
I can only assume there is some kind of agreement with the loans here. He took off jack who was at the time our best midfield player, winning the ball and playing it out. Arfield should have been on 20mins before that and I’d honestly drop Candieas for anyone. He’s pitiful.

3.) 28 Oct 2018 19:11:44
We badly need someone else up front. At the minute we've got 2 forwards . That sadiq is brutal. Candeias will run but the supports not there could see that with the half chance we created when if the giraffe would have come the other side like a normal striker he was in . Lafferty and morelos are decent bit we need fire power.

4.) 28 Oct 2018 19:26:03
Might as well recall Hardie as he isn’t getting a look in at Livi since his return from injury.



16 May 2018 06:38:26
Having seen all the rumours on here about the 20 EPL players we will get because Stevie G will bring them up with him, i just wanted to have a look at our own pool of talent and see what youths may come through next year.
Ryan Hardie/ Liam Burt/ Jamie Barjonas/ Aidan Wilson/ Serge Atakayi/ Glenn Middleton/ Myles Beerman.
All of these players have been touted to break through for a while and some have made a good impression, especially Barjonas. My concern is that quite a few of them have gone to the HK 7s tournament, so wouldn't be getting much of a break. Thoughts people?


1.) 16 May 2018 06:48:43
Every one of them should be giving a chance at preseason, I wasn’t sold on Beerman but let’s see what he’s like two years older.

2.) 16 May 2018 07:27:13
heard good things about middleton

any time i saw barjonas he looked strong and composed on the ball with a good engine to get box to box

we have to give some of these lads a run to see if any cld make it especially given our finances

hope SG gives youth a chance as if rather a hardie burt or barjonas in the team over herrera pena any day

3.) 16 May 2018 07:42:00
There is no point in having a youth system if the youngster are never going to be given a chance. There is an old saying, 'if you are good enough you are old enough'. I think I first heard that about Denis Law and later George Best. McCoist had the chance to build a new squad with youngsters when we were put into the lowest tier but decided saving his own skin was more important so he signed duds. I've been a fan of Hardie for some time now and don't understand why he hasn't been given a chance. So I'm all for the kids being blooded, perhaps in the League Cup initially.

4.) 16 May 2018 08:23:35
Doiger, to be fair to McCoist the talent coming through at the time was not good enough, you must agree🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧

5.) 16 May 2018 09:52:16
Which ones of Mccoists youths would you have picked doiger and where are they now?

6.) 16 May 2018 10:19:36
Gasparotto, Hegarty, MacLeod, Crawford, Murdoch, Kyle Hutton, Aird, Hemmings, Walsh, McAusland, Telfer, Kal Naismith, Hardie

7.) 16 May 2018 10:22:31
And how many of the experienced players are still with the club and where are they now?

I watched big loud mouth Boyd win more headers and run further in one game than he did in a full season for us a couple of weeks ago.

Ally had an opportunity to build a fit young squad that would come up the leagues together. But he choose another route and it clearly didn’t work. No one is saying he should have played the under 18s but his signing policy was wrong with no future outlook.

8.) 16 May 2018 11:28:32
Doiger all playing at a pretty low level

9.) 16 May 2018 11:46:25
Well we'll never know will we joby17?

Comparative overview of the fixtures vs the Sheep:
Kilmarnock v Aberdeen
Rangers v Hearts

Aberdeen v Hearts
Celtic v Rangers

Rangers v Kilmarnock
Aberdeen v Hibernian

Aberdeen v Rangers

Celtic v Aberdeen
Hibernian v Rangers

We definitely have the tougher fixture list and it genuinely could come down to last 2 games. Points are definitely going to be lost in the first few weeks. the cup game will seriously dictate how we perform in the next few weeks. Honest confession= i'm worried, we haven't been performing at all well and the only positives i can see that may work for us is that we have near enough a fully fit squad now. Midfield is still a big concern though.


1.) 12 Apr 2018 09:10:47
I agree - with the teams left in top 6 and the 'uncertain' nature of our performances one week to the next - it wouldn't really have mattered who and where we played them, although I agree the last 2 games could be the difference between 2nd and 4th!

2.) 12 Apr 2018 09:44:50
There’s no difference really guys as we all have to play each other and our home form has been abysmal.

3.) 12 Apr 2018 11:38:10
2nd is last

change of mentality needed

if not first then irrelevant

4.) 12 Apr 2018 12:01:39
The form of most of the top 6 aren't that much better than us plus we all have to play each other we can get 2nd not as hard as some are making out

5.) 12 Apr 2018 13:37:00
I say 12 points out them games only the other mod to beat us in the split.

6.) 12 Apr 2018 13:55:40
No one remembers the team that finishes 2nd or the runner up.



22 Mar 2018 12:41:31
Lot's of people slating Murty at the moment, personally i would like him to be our manager as i honestly rate him. not only that, but he hasn't has the full squad to work with and i honestly believe that Jack/ Dorrans/ Wallace and McCrorie will be hugely influential to us. He needs more competition in key areas such as Wide midfielders and a creative midfielder, i think Dorrans would fit that once he is in, as Windass is just too inconsistent. We have a potentially VERY good manager on our hands who has been thrown in to the deep end of managing one of the most successful clubs in the world with extraordinary expectations. I think he deserves the time and our loyalty.


1.) 22 Mar 2018 13:45:59
Potentially a very good manager? We don’t have the time to wait and see if he is, his record isn’t good enough so for me it’s a no

2.) 22 Mar 2018 15:43:11
I Don’t think he is being slated just think more and more people don’t think he is up to the job and should go back to the u20s. He is a good guy and has done ok however if we are to challenge Celtic we need someone with more experience

3.) 22 Mar 2018 19:30:56
Teddy agree with you that Murty has done OK but we need a tried and trusted man for the position and to be honest do we really trust our board to pick that man?
After the appointment of Pedro no one was made accountable and no one from the board explained how he had any qualifications for the job? It was a disgraceful appointment and put as backwards! 🇬🇧🇬🇧

4.) 22 Mar 2018 21:57:32
I'm still waiting on a explanation from the board as to why Pedro was appointed. I trusted that there was good reason for it at the time such as foreign investment and he was their preferred man. But no we've had nothing.

5.) 22 Mar 2018 23:55:34
Mikeger, that's in the past, not long ago right enough, but we need to move on .

6.) 23 Mar 2018 07:53:38
I honestly don't have one shred of doubt that graeme murty should remain our permanent manager, at least into the start of next season,
on a 12 month rolling contract! Maybe its just me, but i honestly don't see too much of a gamble having murty remain our manager, at least for the start of next season to see how he goes! With a few more transfer windows with murty and allen, going by the january window, i can only see positive signs! Murty will gain his experience and become more tactically aware, within the rangers manager's job imo anyway! Would be a mistake in my eyes overlooking murty, for the manager's job! Our loss would undoubtedly be, some other football club's gain! Murty will go on to become a very good manager! Let him evolve with us! I honestly don't wear, ie. quotes being said like, "murty's not a big enough name", "murty's inexperienced", "murty's makes mistakes tactically", etc! Murty is perfect working under a DOF, he knows our football club and the way its set out to function, from top to bottom, he's a very good coach and has players WANTING to play for him, senior and youths! He'll only gain the experience with being in the job! Its honestly a "no brainer" for me to at the very least, give murty the start of next season, in the job! We could honestly regret it big time, if we don't! Murty will only get better and better and that's my honest assessment of the guy!

7.) 23 Mar 2018 08:57:53
Didn't see much signs the players want to play for him in the last game! We signed decent players in January but we're still losing far too many games. Think everyone knows coops views on murty but there's a good few folk on here that feel just as strongly that we need a better quality of manager

8.) 23 Mar 2018 09:50:16
Of course blueberry, everyone has their opinion and are perfectly entitled to mate! We've all got our preferences and without doubt, i'll give my total backing to anyone who gets the rangers manager's job! I've been supporting and following rangers everywhere, for over 40 years now, and always have backed my club, boy and man! The players have certainly responded to murty big time, since he got the job until the end of the season! The Kilmarnock game that blueberry correctly mentions, where our players did seem very flat and lethargic, can happen after an old firm defeat hangover! I've seen this sort of thing happen many times after us losing an old firm game, with better rangers managers than graeme murty and better rangers players than our current players!

9.) 23 Mar 2018 13:08:51
once again, the demand is for instant success.
The opportunity was there when the club went to the bottom tier.
Play youth and build-up both playing and business to a sound footing. But no, Ally wanted (and probably under pressure by the board) right back into top league. Answer? Spend more than necessary to do this.
All through the rise up the leagues, same thing. Throw money for instant success.
No planning for future and now we come to today. Tried the money thing (limited in comparison to the CL cash Celtic have had available) and a few numpties, including the manager.
I would give Murty the nod NOW so that he can plan for next season and beyond.
It might be painful for a while but look at the number of teams who have stuck by one man and I think Murty has the potential if given the backing. Just my tuppenceworth anyway.

10.) 23 Mar 2018 14:12:00
As much as I think murty is a decent enough bloke. I've seen nothing in our performances, especially at ibrox to suggest murty has the ability or potential to be a successful manager. I HOPE we win cup and finish 2nd but I've got my doubts to be honest

Personally i've always liked him, was gutted when he moved to the derps, but i can't see this happening, I follow southampton often, living close to that area, he has been one of their best players since their upturn in form recently. Although he does come of the bench more often than not, i can't see them getting rid of him unless they bring in another midfielder.

I think we are all kidding ourselves if we can't see how a gesture like that can be misconstrued. That gesture has a meaning in the UK and in wider Europe. This is a game with a huge audience, i wouldn't want to see young kids running around doing that on a footie pitch. I remember Suarez giving a similar argument when he was accused by Evra. Sorry but the boy needs to learn that in the country he plays for, that symbolises a threat and nothing else.

Ryan Jack looked a relatively average player when with the sheep, it wasn't until he was able to play with players of a quality that forced him to improve, that we got the Ryan Jack we have today. The though of Gerrard coaching Ferguson melts my mouth. Would love to see it. Although i would prefer to see some of our own young players such as Docherty and Barjonas getting a chance before we give the sheep cash.

How can we judge if he is good enough? Nor do i believe that Kamara is in fact, one of our best players, ( I will stress that i am not saying he isn't brilliant, but out of Davis/ Jack and kamara is the least consistent and although he is a neat and tidy player, offers little in terms of attack in my opinion.

@paulellen - He's on loan and the loan runs out this Jan i believe? I assume at this stage it's a case of, does Bournemouth want to sell him to us with 6month left on his contract or can we buy it out and get him to reduce his wage. Might be 100% wrong about that, but that was what i thought was the case? Anyone no any different?

Docherty (although i hope he doesn, but he's got no chance at the moment)


Personally i hope that Ojo heads back to Liverpool. We have far too many options in the wide areas and he just hasn't performed. And King of course.

Returns: Hastie and Middleton are apparently back and McCrorie has had a nightmare with injuries and being played out of position by Pompey.

I just hope that when they do move on, we aren't going out buying expensive exports. the likes on Nathan Young-Coombes/ Kai Kennedy/ Stephen Kelly/ Maxwell etc. we hear so much about them and have barely seen a peep. Barjonas and Docherty anyone? Would love nothing more than to see Kamara sold and Docherty to move straight in and show us what he's capable of.
