I see Gerrard strongly hinting at new signings coming in! Well I am happy to admit I may have got that one wrong, let's hope so 🤭 Can't help thinking we must also be moving some out at the same time, we'll see.


1.) 19 Jun 2020 10:26:37
Hi Muppet,

I think that we forget how many players we actually have on the books and therefore how many we are letting go of that maybe fly under the radar.

Someone mentioned before the release of Pena and Herrera freeing up wages which is true. But there are more to consider.

Already left/ going - Foderingham, Alnwick, Flanagan, Halliday, Rossiter, Holt, Ojo, Kamberi.

So that's 8 spaces and 8 more wages (whether we paid some or all of these) before we let any more go. Having said that we most likely will let more go. Not because we are skint but it just makes sense and we need to make sense financially and for our future youth coming through.

I reckon we will still see 2 or 3 of the following go - Jones, Middleton, Murphy, Barker and Hastie.
Also things will come to a head this window or next for Barjonas and/ or Docherty.

This gives us at least 10 bodies out. Having only brought in 2 first team players.


2.) 19 Jun 2020 10:40:32
Of those mentioned as possibly going the only one I would like to see stay is Murphy since I still believe that he can do a job for us. I suspect that Middleton and Hastie will go back out on loan and being blunt, I don't think we would miss any of the others including Barjonas and Docherty. We do however need to bring in players of a significantly higher standard than those leaving.


3.) 19 Jun 2020 10:56:10
Get rid of Goldson and Kamara also. That will bring in some transfer funds.


4.) 19 Jun 2020 11:02:09
Ross Wilson ang SG are doing a lot of work behind the scenes. I am expecting a couple of blue chip signings. Hopefully, very soon.


5.) 19 Jun 2020 11:03:46
Hopefully we'll get Kamberi back on a permanent deal👍.


6.) 19 Jun 2020 12:11:11
I agree get kamberi back in, good squad player.


7.) 19 Jun 2020 12:22:54
Keep jones docherty middleton latter 2 prob o out on loan

Sell or release murphy hastie barker goldson

Katic i think is our best cb
Get another top striker in
Kamberi would just be a squad player others would be put in front of him same as jones but still think there more to come from jones.


8.) 19 Jun 2020 12:31:05
INTR, I agree about Katic, imagine what he would be like if he had someone like Davie Weir to sort out his positioning.


9.) 19 Jun 2020 12:55:11
Katic will get better with experience. A no nonsense defender like Helander beside him help matters.


10.) 19 Jun 2020 14:50:55
Coldo have to disagree I hope kamberi doesn’t come back he just isn’t good enough.


11.) 19 Jun 2020 15:54:33
Kamberi could do a turn for us! he's not a first choice striker but wouldn't be a bad signing.


12.) 19 Jun 2020 18:51:43
Agreeing pretty much with all comments above. I’m still unsure about Jones, he played well for Ireland and is definitely a decent player, like to see him again this season injury free think he has something to give. Seems Gerrard was very confident about the signings and I’m sure he has a definite or two already lined up which makes me wonder if Tapia is coming. What you think?


13.) 19 Jun 2020 23:22:04
Kamberi would be an easy decision for me.

I'd also agree with the comment on how many players we have on books. We have about 8 central midfielders and only 1 or 2 are good / consistent enough and if truth be told even those two wouldn't make a real Rangers team.

We need to rid the deadwood and bring in quality.


14.) 20 Jun 2020 00:04:26
I agree. Get rid of the deadwood but some are happy to pick up wages until there contract runs out. We do not want to return to the position of paying players to leave.


15.) 20 Jun 2020 02:58:18
Not good enough? He was our best player.


16.) 20 Jun 2020 00:47:10
From what I hear from a friend SG isn't happy with wide options. Hastie and Middleton will head out on loan and if suitable deals barker Jones and Murphy will all be moved on. 2 new wide men will come in. If possible polster will move on if we get a suitable replacement cover RB. 1 GK will be brought in with mccrorie twins both heading back out on loans, GK one will be challenging for no1 season starting 2021
There could be first team players sold with morelos (SG wants to keep but some offers are too good to turn down) and tav possible exits. Toney from English league 1 will come in weather morelos stays or goes. Look for us to use the likes of Patterson, Kennedy, kelly and other youth players when needed as they are getting closer to first team.


 

 

17 Feb 2020 07:53:31
Supposing we win nothing this season which is by far the most likely scenario and heaps of transfer money is not made available from thin air to revamp the squad, next season why would gerrard remain to face more humiliation. surely from his point of view, getting out would be the sensible option before his reputation is in tatters. And where is the transfer money materialising from?


1.) 17 Feb 2020 09:13:51
Good point.


2.) 17 Feb 2020 09:42:20
if sg walks his reputation will be in tatters!


3.) 17 Feb 2020 09:54:11
Are we forgetting we played everyone off the park for first half of season Inc top European sides in porto etc. We have had a disaster over the last 4/ 5 weeks. If we click back into gear play well to end of season (probably still won't win the league granted) but from where we were when Gerrard came in then how can that be time for him to go. We've bridged what was a massive gap between us and them and other than a shocking couple of games we've been had a good season, we're still in the fight and there's still Scottish Cup to go for.
Yes, it's a missed opportunity in the league but only because we were put in the position of being so good in first half season.
Back the team and the manager.


4.) 17 Feb 2020 09:58:29
He helped build the humiliation you talk about.


5.) 17 Feb 2020 10:20:26
if he needs heaps of transfer money on top of what he’s spent is that what we need.

how much do you actually need to put a team on the park to beat bottom of table hearts or a poor killie / dons anyway

without contradicting myself i do admit hagi looks very good and he would be an excellent addition to our team but will prob cost 4/ 5m.


6.) 17 Feb 2020 10:49:35
Being honest, I eouldnt pay 5m for haji on the evidence of what I've saw so far.


7.) 17 Feb 2020 14:06:25
Trev, livi spent about 8 pound on transfer fees, yet beat celtic 2/ 0 we need to keep buying players until we've got a good enought pool of player to challenge celtic, as its going to be hard winning the league with the small amount of first team players we have at this moment in time.


8.) 17 Feb 2020 14:20:24
Spot on Trev about the hearts / killie an dons recent games .

Be surprised if our own supporters don't give us gip for that comment
tho.


9.) 17 Feb 2020 15:07:41
Herewego55 Really? he has scored and got an assist in 3 matches and has still yet to fully settle into the squad. Time will tell but tbh i'd already say he is a better acquisition for 5m than Kent is for 7m.


10.) 17 Feb 2020 17:13:40
Exactly, but Kent's not exactly setting the heather on fire. Cracking player, imo not worth 5m if thsts ok?


11.) 18 Feb 2020 10:24:19
Trev, celtic have spent massively, they've earned at least 200 million in ch lge money, plus 20 mill in transfer fees while we've spent a pittance in comparison, and you and others expect gerrard to win league in a short space of time, phew I've heard it all now. the 25 million in transfer fees recouped by celtic was buttons compared to there ch league money, i think people should think for a few wee seconds before posting.


12.) 18 Feb 2020 15:19:04
Herewego55 we can't really say either way. if we do then its hardly giving the boy a chance. as i said time will tell he looks a cracking player and really 5m when you think of it isn't really that much money compared with the fees that we hear down south (i know were basically a farmers league in comparison)


13.) 18 Feb 2020 23:15:15
Kylel1872,i think if we bring in another 3players of his quality in the summer, we would definetly have a team good enough to win the league, that's the way we will build until we have a strong pool, and lots of current team will be squad players.


 

 

02 Sep 2019 09:22:48
Jones potentially out for some time with a knee injury, Middleton and Murphy on loan, Kent not returning, Candeais gone, Grezda not in the picture, that leaves us with only one winger Oh no! How are we going to break teams down like that?


1.) 02 Sep 2019 10:39:58
Barker, Arfield, Ojo - while hardly the depth of Barcelona it's a bit more than 'one winger'.


2.) 02 Sep 2019 10:52:34
Arfield is wasted trying to play anywhere other centrally.


3.) 02 Sep 2019 11:21:16
although I think arfield best position is more central, he can play right midfield. I can see another attempt at signing Kent today.


4.) 02 Sep 2019 11:46:14
Scotty Arfield ain't a winger rfcrb1872!Barker and ojo are wingers.


5.) 02 Sep 2019 11:50:50
Arfield is not a winger.


6.) 02 Sep 2019 11:54:56
apart from barker and ojo. u seem to be forgetting docherty. and murphy has not been loaned as yet (in fact neither has hastie as yet) might reconsider hastie if jones is long term.


7.) 02 Sep 2019 12:41:56
Yeah, he was shocking out wide during the split.


8.) 02 Sep 2019 12:44:40
barker is injured and untried, arfield isn't a winger. neither is ojo.


9.) 02 Sep 2019 12:57:37
Sky reporting Ryan Kent in £7mill talks with RANGERS 🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧.


10.) 02 Sep 2019 13:02:22
Just heard Kent is on his way phew at last I had almost given up hope!


11.) 02 Sep 2019 13:02:27
Kent signing today for £7M.


12.) 02 Sep 2019 13:03:18
I don't rate Ohno and Arfield is not a winger, fortunately Kent is on his way!


13.) 02 Sep 2019 13:12:20
I think it looks like Kent is coming now! Permanent deal almost agreed. Maybe the boards hands been forced following that performance yesterday and Jones getting himself injured!


14.) 02 Sep 2019 13:13:17
Kent should be over the line today 7mil.


15.) 02 Sep 2019 13:28:36
Sky now reporting we have agreed 7million with Liverpool for Kent.


16.) 02 Sep 2019 14:52:37
Kent is returning my friend! 7 mil offer accepted.


 

 

01 Aug 2019 21:10:13
Here's a thought. Rangers knew exactly what they were doing in the kit fiasco and gambled on getting away with it and had they done so they planned to buy Kent but when it became apparent that their gamble had backfired they dropped the plan hence the timing of SG announcement that they had given up hope of bringing Kent back to Ibrox?


1.) 01 Aug 2019 22:30:32
They never planned to buy Kent you came up with a BS story that they would and now trying to cover yourself.


2.) 02 Aug 2019 09:17:34
GANNET10 a wee question for you my friend. You have always insisted on here, that ryan kent wasn't that good or consistent and wouldn't be a big a big loss if we didn't sign him. I like many others on here said he is a cracking winger and would have loved him to sign with us, on a permanent or another loan deal. How would you feel if ryan kent was playing against us for celtic this season? Because i wouldn't be in the least surprised, if they tried to sign kent. There's stories doing the rounds that they quite possibly will try and sign kent. Me personally, it would make me physically sick, if i had to watch ryan kent playing against rangers, in that rag of a hoops jersey. He would obviously have the ability to hurt us badly.


3.) 02 Aug 2019 09:57:51
SGL if they sign him for £7m then it would not bother me as he is simply not worth that money in Soctland but if they sign him for £3m and we could have, this would be a conern. Good player though he is, he his not worth the figures being touted about. Ask yourself why Liverpool are apparently prepared to let him go.


4.) 02 Aug 2019 10:03:31
Living up to your name, muppet. DK knew what he was doing and hoped to get away with it, true. But the rest makes as much sense as the Swedish chef.


5.) 02 Aug 2019 12:51:50
People saying Celtic after kent need to stay aff the fkn glue.


6.) 02 Aug 2019 12:56:05
hi fellow bears
look its fairly simple! we will have to do a deal with sports direct . end of! we cannot use elite hummel! end of! dave king has said any financial settlement will be paid! end of! the club has stated we will not be without a shirt sponsor next year! so can we move on now please


7.) 02 Aug 2019 14:34:54
The club/ Dave king said he'd dealt with SD/ the fatman before. Dave says a lot. The situation regarding kit/ merchandise is a joke! End of!


8.) 02 Aug 2019 15:11:52
how is it a joke we were getting 7p in the £ got rid of that now we have to do a new deal what's the problem mr grumpy? the situation is a hell of a lot better than getting next to feck all now at least we can try and do a deal with sports direct they have been told to sit down and strike a deal its in all parties interest. if dk hadnt got us out of that ridiculous deal where would we be now. up to our eyes in debt to ashley and his cronies or i shudder to think where we would have ended up. like i said just do a deal that suits all parties it is actually that simple.


9.) 02 Aug 2019 16:23:14
Mols the question you ask me is very easy to answer pal. Liverpool are prepared to let ryan kent go because they can't guarantee him game time,
with guys like salah, mane and firminio in front of him. Also klopp said that kent is too good to not be playing regularly for a good football club. He needs to be a settled regular in a starting 11,at his age now. Hope i've answered your question mols.


10.) 02 Aug 2019 16:38:36
Someone on here posted that the Hummel deal was a 5yr deal. Does that mean SD have to match that then we are tied to them ( albeit on the same terms as Hummel) for another 5 years?


11.) 02 Aug 2019 17:48:59
BS story? Not making sense? SG himself has stated that he wants Kent and was prepared to wait for as long as it takes so no question the SG agrees with me and many others on here about the value of having Kent back. Question is would rangers pay the asking price of £7m if they could afford it? I think so. If the SD fiasco had not raised its ugly head and they had moved out Grezda and another it would have been perfectly doable. The SD carry on has severely dented that possibility but tav could still go and Kent could come in on a permanent deal which is what I am claiming. Let’s see who is right!


12.) 02 Aug 2019 20:28:10
SGL comprehensive and probably fairly accurate response but in other words he is not good enough. We will see where he is playing his football in 5 years time. He will get a game every week in Scotland but no so sure about the EPL.


13.) 02 Aug 2019 21:09:10
Zikos, i can assure you the hummel kit deal was most definitely a 3 year deal, not a 5 year deal mate.


14.) 02 Aug 2019 22:27:05
Our lovable rogue Dave told us, the supporters he'd paid off the fatman, that obiviously wasn't true. The club has lost time and time again in court to SD/ the fatman, this costing the club money. Last season dave said the soft loans had been turned into shares. Sounds good, few days later we get another loan from close brothers. It ws only days ago the club was talking about expanding the stadium. Sounds good but obiviously either bull or many years away. After a decent summer of recruiting we should be talking about the upcoming season. Dave King is a chancer and full of it. End of!


15.) 03 Aug 2019 00:14:11
I have said in the past his stats are poor and they are stats don’t lie so they say.
He had 2 blinders against Celtic and slapped brown and to some fans that wear blue tinted specs he is a hero and the rest of the season he was bang average now that’s not me making anything up that’s stone cold hands facts mate.


16.) 03 Aug 2019 11:22:16
First time poster troops go easy, but GANNET, crazy the amount of people on here that are quick to say ryan kent isn't good enough, highly rated enough by 1. Steven Gerrard and 2. Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool manager of the best team Liverpool has seen in years winning the champions league and giving the best premier league side of this generation (man city) a run for their money for the league. Klopp took on Kent on their tour because he was potentially looking at first team football, fair enough it never worked out given the attacking options they had, but considering he was even considered and actually had a lot of praise from klopp after the tour goes to show you how highly rated he is, so don't and never will agree with the bashing of kent on here, stats aren't everything and we wouldn't have done half as good in the league last season. Kent is class.


17.) 03 Aug 2019 12:38:46
but again I understand that with such a price tag some people would be against a permanent move for kent as it is a totally different ball game for us to pay that money compared to English teams paying it.


18.) 06 Aug 2019 10:17:35
So far we have spent very little on players this transfer window and while better than what we had last season the majority of the players signed on free transfers are nothing more than squad players. If we are to win the league and make serious progress in Europe we still require a couple more quality players and that will cost money. Whether we should sign Kent at £7m is open to debate but that is the level of player we should be looking at. We should also be looking to sign a quality striker to play alongside Morelos, not to replace him. It will be a long season and if we progress to the Group Stages in Europe then we are still short of a quality squad.


 

 

01 Aug 2019 14:28:37
Well that's the first part of my prediction come true (we will sign Kent for £7m once we remove some of the deadwood) . I see the real valuation now being reported is £7m and not £12m. Depending on shipping out the relevant persons we will be signing Kent before the window shuts! Believe me or not!


1.) 01 Aug 2019 17:31:49
No we won't gerrard already said it's over for kent.


2.) 01 Aug 2019 17:41:59
Let's say it's true, spending just under 25% of your annual turnover on ONE PLAYER would be madness in your current situation. Kent is a fine player but he still has some developing to do and what if he got a long term injury. It's like us spending 25 million on one player, absolutely not going to happen.


3.) 01 Aug 2019 18:44:58
Forwarded the same info almost 2 months ago but the fee was closer to 6 mill, either way was never anywhere near the 12 mill the press claims.


4.) 01 Aug 2019 18:45:56
on loan only option. no way is he worth 7 million. he was just mentioned as player of year can't see him repeating that so value highest it ever will be. love kent don't get me wrong but not at 7 million we need to shop smarter 3 players for that money.


5.) 06 Aug 2019 10:20:43
Why not look to strike a deal with Liverpool to buy Kent for, say £5m, paid over two seasons with Liverpool getting 50% of any future sale proceeds over an above the £5m. That would be a good deal for both clubs given that Klopp does not appear to want him.

24 Jun 2020 09:28:07
John McLaughlin. Can't say I'm enthralled by any of the signings to date. The guy was released by (wait for it) Burton Albion (yes you heard correctly) in May 2017, and here's what his manager Nigel Clough had to say at the time "We just feel that we want to move in a different direction with a different kind of goalkeeper". Not exactly awe inspiring is it.


1.) 24 Jun 2020 09:50:27
Muppet he was not released his contract was up.
Mb rangers should bin scouting system and use guys like u.


2.) 24 Jun 2020 10:01:32
Correct John25, interesting to hear SG say open minded about who will be first pick keeper. My monies on McLaughlin.


3.) 24 Jun 2020 10:09:58
I feel he is more back up but wait and see! Two year deal would take up to McCrorie being ready to potentially step up. Always thought he was decent at hearts and I feel a step up from Wes either way.


4.) 24 Jun 2020 11:10:07
Yes jon mclaughlin will be back up to allan mcgregor, at least in the short term anyway. Robby mccrorie will go out on a season long loan deal again, once he signs his new rangers contract. that's what we did when allan mcgregor himself was breaking through as a young goalkeeper and look how that turned out for him. Its the correct way regarding young mccrorie and just like mcgregor did, i do expect mccrorie to be the rangers no.1 in the not too distant future, for years to come. I think rangers are handling his situation spot on! 👍.


5.) 24 Jun 2020 11:12:42
Another negative muppet post. Why even bother getting out of bed in the morning. 🤷‍♂️
I’m begging to think you’re a lurker as I’d say the Hagi signing was pretty decent. 🤦‍♂️.


6.) 24 Jun 2020 12:10:46
spot on SG

robbie should be our no1 going forward in the not too distant future

his loan at livi went well sonanother yrs loan he cld be ready to step in

due to sign new long term contract any day apparently

we’ve handled this well i feel and the lad mclaughlin will be able to step in as cover or even push AM for a start.


7.) 24 Jun 2020 12:20:41
NRD there is a difference between negativity and pointing out the facts. I am not negative at all in fact I’m optimistic about the direction the club is taking and so far as McLaughlin is concerned I am keeping an open mind, the past is not necessarily a predictor of the future he may well turn out to be brilliant, and I hope he does, I am 100% behind him. The comment made by former manager is not my opinion it’s just pointing out the facts. Anyway I know I will not convince you.


8.) 24 Jun 2020 13:36:35
Snell a definite step up from Fods and Alnwick, over 400 first team games.
Funny someone slags him for being at burton, yet last year they were a top team when Murphy was scoring.
This is a signing I’m happy with.


9.) 24 Jun 2020 13:39:24
Here’s hoping we tie down mccrorie, his agent is pushing hard. Spurs have followed him since 16 and want him.


10.) 24 Jun 2020 13:51:23
Muppet we have released 6 players and replaced 3 of them with better Halliday/ Hagi, Flanagan/ bassey Fob/ McLaughlin.


11.) 24 Jun 2020 16:01:49
Muppet you should look up optimistic because your post was not. In fact your post was more glass empty than half full.


12.) 24 Jun 2020 17:14:17
Muppet, the facts are that McLaughlin's contract was up and his spiteful boss Clough saw his team relegated the following season when they shipped 81 league goals. For clarification, the previous season McLaughlin let in 20 less, probably the difference between safety and the fate they eventually suffered.


13.) 24 Jun 2020 20:10:26
Nearly every post you type is negative or you’re moaning about something. The simple fact is we aren’t going to sign a quality keeper to sit on the bench as shagger is our no 1.
So it’s a low risk back up.


 

 

18 Jun 2020 13:21:48
Okay, here's my thoughts. We have signed a couple of youngsters with potential on free transfers (more or less) . We have freed a couple of players surplus to requirements to fund the wages of the new recruits. We are not actively pursuing any new signings at the moment because of the uncertainties floating around just now. We also have too many players for various positions, Arfield, Hagi, Jack, Aribo, Davis, Kamara, Polster, Stewart, Docherty, Jones, Middleton, Barker, Morelos, Kent, Defoe, Murphy, Hastie etc., that's a lot of wages. Methinks we are not buying until we sell.


1.) 18 Jun 2020 13:50:18
So Sg interview a pack of lies muppet when he says we r actively pursuing signings muppet.


2.) 18 Jun 2020 14:01:43
I think Gerrard is saying that we are of course always looking to make new signings where they will strengthen the team, what manger worth his salt wouldn’t be, and we are actively scouting and monitoring potential signings but realistically we cannot just keep adding players and salaries without offloading it would be a recipe for bankruptcy.


3.) 18 Jun 2020 14:07:21
Sorry The Muppet, i agree with John25,as i don't think for a second steven gerrard or ross wilson are lying and like they both stated, i firmly do believe we're actively pursuing new signings.


4.) 18 Jun 2020 14:08:29
Muppet sg clearly said we have a number of targets and it’s exciting times, Ross Wilson wiring tirelessly to get deals done!


5.) 18 Jun 2020 15:11:31
I'd be very surprised if Gerrard and co don't already know who we are going to sign muppet. The planning would have started months ago👍.


6.) 18 Jun 2020 15:25:06
Coldo hope they have at least two or three that the press know f all about 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🇦🇺⚽️😎👍.


7.) 18 Jun 2020 15:35:53
Coldo as i was talking to some jambos today regarding neil mccann,
here's a wee question for yourself and all other fellow bears in general. If neil mccann was playing with just say hearts like he was when advocaat signed him, would you want us to sign him for this team at the moment, knowing how good a left winger he was?


8.) 18 Jun 2020 15:38:17
Muppet we have moved six already, and last season cleared out Pena and Herrera at a reputed 50k a week saving on they two
It’s about doing business very cleverly like renegotiated deal with Hagi.

I too do not think Gerrard was lying, I am certain he and Wilson are actively seeking and planning new signings. However I think it is even more important in the present situation with the likely financial impact created by the virus that we have plans in place to offload or loan out certain players before we commit to multimillion pound signings. Problem with the situation as it is, it is very difficult to sell/ loan to other clubs as they are having to offload and cut costs. We cannot just keep adding without selling/ loans first. I know this sounds obvious and is nothing new, but what is new is the virus and the Hearts/ Thistle liabilities and uncertainties surrounding the whole game, this is why I think we have not seen any big signings to date. I like all of you hope that changes soon.

Fingers crossed cunny🤞. McCann was quality coop, I'd have him in a heart beat if he could still play the way he did 20 year ago. 👍.


11.) 18 Jun 2020 16:39:01
Neil McCann was a brilliant player for the famous. fantastic service from the left wing.


12.) 18 Jun 2020 16:54:30
McCann better player than Kent is.


13.) 18 Jun 2020 17:55:48
I was always a massive fan of neil mccann. I remember speaking to his now late dad eddie mccann outside ibrox before a midweek game many years ago now. He told us that although he grew up a celtic fan, he was there to support his boy at ibrox and stated how proud he was of neil playing for rangers. Eddie attended ibrox often supporting and watching his son playing for the famous! Neil's old man was a gentleman!

I watched the league cup final vs hearts at parkhead recently when Neil McCann played for hearts (the gazza and ally fight final) . Wee McCann was outstanding. Loved when he came to rangers and hope he gets back in the game as soon as possible.

Hearts would have saved themselves a lot of money and hassle if they appointed him instead of Levein, the boy with the long hair or Stendel. Anne budge has a lot to answer for.


15.) 18 Jun 2020 19:33:25
I was at that coca cola cup final at breeze block boulevard that day Baz the bear! Mccann was absolutely outstanding in that game against us,
but fortunately for us so was gascoigne! 👌.

Okay guys (and Coldo) 🤔 here's a wee conundrum for you to consider. Let's suppose the season starts in August and after one game played Dundee United top the league after an easy 5-0 win over Hamilton. Before the second games can be played Jam Tarts get a court interdict preventing further games being played for 2 months. Just before this ends a new strain of the corona virus rears it ugly head, and lockdown is enforced again preventing the season being completed. Now how many of you would be happy to see United awarded the title? (Sorry guys I need to get a life) . 😂.


1.) 16 Jun 2020 18:56:09
OK I'll take you up muppet, yours is obviously an extreme example but imagine we are three points clear of them and they have a game in hand when the league is once again called with 8/ 9 games to go, they would HAVE to award us the league because precedent has been set. Can you imagine our friends from the east end?


2.) 16 Jun 2020 18:59:48
Not me.


3.) 16 Jun 2020 19:23:49
That’s just being completely silly.


4.) 16 Jun 2020 20:23:26
But effective. had the very same thought. answer - if they're not top or close it will never happen.


5.) 16 Jun 2020 21:48:57
You're just being silly muppet👍.

Patrick and Hearts. Surely the rules of the competition are to play x number of games with the team with most points being declared champions and the one with least being relegated. One cannot then change the rules at short notice because something unexpected cropped up. If it was a tennis match or golf competition and a storm prevented the game being completed it would be abandoned with no winner declared. If the weather cleared up the remaining games would then continue. I cannot see why football is any different, Hearts and Thistle have been cheated and Celtic are not champions. There is no such thing as 3/ 4 champions you either are or you are not. Celtic are not champions and Hearts and Thistle should not be relegated. Wrong decisions have been taken.


1.) 16 Jun 2020 16:32:58
Same to your analogy, any football match ended before the end is cancelled and replayed- despite the score and however likely one team is to win.


2.) 16 Jun 2020 16:50:33
Muppet, you talk so much sense bud✌️🇬🇧🇬🇧.


3.) 16 Jun 2020 16:53:09
Surely Coldo has to reply to Snell and the Muppet?


4.) 16 Jun 2020 16:57:11
We voted to end the season, this constant going over the same ground is getting desperate. They were awarded the title, however you'd have to be deluded if you think we would have caught them. The relegation is more unfair as these teams had a realistic chance of survival whereas we never had a realistic chance of winning the title. 👍.


5.) 16 Jun 2020 17:10:30
Game abandoned after 60 minutes, regardless score line is a replay.


6.) 16 Jun 2020 17:29:38
Don't think any of us were deluded Coldo mate .

The argument was "it was not impossible for us to win the league" especially with 8 games still to play.


7.) 16 Jun 2020 17:41:22
Coldo I’m guessing you just about managed a slow clap for helicopter Sunday.
If a team can be caught in 11th place or 1st you cannot declare a league over. The decision was made (with dubious reasoning) and worked back to add justification.


8.) 16 Jun 2020 17:43:40
Apparently it's over because the fat Coldo has already sang and gave the thumbs up. 👍🤣😂🤣.


9.) 16 Jun 2020 17:58:50
I does not matter how many points we were behind Celtic it does not even matter if we were so far behind it was mathematically impossible to catch Celtic, the fact remains, the competition was over a set number of games, and if those games could not be played for whatever reason you cannot just award a title to someone when the rules of the competition have been changed after the event. To do so is unfair and unsportsmanlike. Again, would it happen in any other sport? What would happen if the new season started and one month later the virus (or a new virus) raised its ugly head and the season had to end, and let’s say Dundee United had got off to a flyer, would it be correct to award them the title?


10.) 16 Jun 2020 18:16:29
I have been called desperate by Coldo and with an agenda, but believe me if we had been 10 points in front with 9 games to go the League would have been VOID!


11.) 16 Jun 2020 18:19:27
Something is truly wrong here and Rangers should never have left at that, a part of me is hoping thistles legal benefactor is one D Parks.


12.) 16 Jun 2020 18:56:30
It's the Weir Family Tom.


13.) 16 Jun 2020 19:47:24
Yately01, correct it would have been called void in the name of sporting integrity given the public health crises. Alternatively it would have been resumed just as EPL are doing tomorrow, allowing the championship to be won.


14.) 16 Jun 2020 19:54:04
Coldo, I am certainly not deluded. Fact is Rangers could still of won the league. You sound like a quitter but certainly not me. Yes I do have an issue with this as I'm a fighter. If it was mathematically impossible for us to win the league then that's fine. I bet your glass is always half full.


15.) 16 Jun 2020 19:59:57
Irvger I think it could be weir family my son thinks the guy Anderson who is a hearts fan.


16.) 16 Jun 2020 20:50:17
Agree 100% percent with you guys. Obviously not you, Coldo.


17.) 16 Jun 2020 21:54:13
We wouldn't have caught them lads, hopefully we will put up a better fight this year👍.


18.) 17 Jun 2020 00:27:08
No way we caught them. Its fine now, no point going over the same ground. Let's get it done next season 🇬🇧.


 

 

11 Jun 2020 22:35:14
My all time best Rangers team: Goalkeeper, Firth; Defenders; Flanagan, Worral, King, McAuley: Midfield; Dorrans, Ejaria, Rossiter, Kranjcar: Forwards; Barker, Sadiq, Grezda. Now that's some team, could definitely stop 10IAR.


1.) 11 Jun 2020 23:05:10
You'd have ojo in there👍.


2.) 11 Jun 2020 23:29:50
And Joey Barton.


3.) 11 Jun 2020 23:32:49
What about Docherty?


4.) 12 Jun 2020 01:44:10
Your team has 12 players and it would need even more.


5.) 12 Jun 2020 02:06:02
Right coldo we get it. You don’t rate ojo and yes he wasn’t great but how badly did a few of your favourites let us down n the 2nd half of the season? You bumped your gums last summer about how we must start with the same team that finished the season before ie arfield on the wing, Defoe before Morelos and what happened? The manager who you dislike chose his own team and was outstanding for the first 6 months. Just you stick to giving the thumbs up mate. Unfortunately I can’t even post what I really think about your constant negativity and slating of the players/ manager.


6.) 12 Jun 2020 02:45:54
What about Russle Martin he should be captain.


7.) 12 Jun 2020 07:40:09
Jeez we have had worse players than that over the years. Sionko, mladenovic, svensson, rothen, marcus gayle, ostenstaad.


8.) 12 Jun 2020 07:40:32
franny jeffers.


9.) 12 Jun 2020 10:11:24
I don't dislike Gerrard, who said that? Morelos attitude showed up again after January when he spat the dummy for not getting a move. Now a lot of people are calling out morelos attitude. It doesn't matter what you want to say as it would clearly be through your blue specs. Just because its negative doesn't mean its not true. 👍.


10.) 12 Jun 2020 10:12:47
Question is, how much money went down the drain on these guys and who thought they were worth investing in. And yes it was a toss up between Barker and Ojo. Of course there are more but it smacks of bad business I just hope Wilson is more on the ball.


11.) 12 Jun 2020 14:23:47
If only us simple rangers fans could have the wisdom and clarity of thought that coldo has! 👍.

Agreeing pretty much with all comments above. I’m still unsure about Jones, he played well for Ireland and is definitely a decent player, like to see him again this season injury free think he has something to give. Seems Gerrard was very confident about the signings and I’m sure he has a definite or two already lined up which makes me wonder if Tapia is coming. What you think?

Well let’s see if it turns out to be true then. It’s not about being positive or negative it is what it is like it or not. Great if I am proven wrong and he signs and turns out to be a really good player I will be as happy as anyone, just see so many supposed signings that never materialise and the club has never even looked at them. Maybe this is a genuine one time will tell.

68 I agree I’m sure he has loads of experience and advice to offer and will help the younger players so much and is great to have around just saying his legs are going and he cannot perform as he once did. Phenomenal player in his day.

I noticed Defoe’s legs were gone at times last season. Having played way past Defoe’s age I know what I’m talking about, when you reach that age the legs just can’t do what the brain wants, it’s frustrating, vey frustrating, but the signs were there last year for sure. Not saying he can’t still do us a turn, only that when the legs are gone and you don’t have that sharpness you are not the same player.

From what I have seen I am not convinced. Hope this is not the guy we are signing.

NRD there is a difference between negativity and pointing out the facts. I am not negative at all in fact I’m optimistic about the direction the club is taking and so far as McLaughlin is concerned I am keeping an open mind, the past is not necessarily a predictor of the future he may well turn out to be brilliant, and I hope he does, I am 100% behind him. The comment made by former manager is not my opinion it’s just pointing out the facts. Anyway I know I will not convince you.
