Good day guys,

Hope everyone is safe and well 😊

Anyone know what the story is with this Lyle Taylor one minute not wanting to play for his club next he is and possibly leaving now to go to Cardiff?

I don't know anything about the player
If he would or would have been a decent player for us

Anyone think Docherty will finally get his chance to play for us this season
Think he's shown he can play well in this league and that he definitely has something to offer

What about Murphy hearing he may be another player let go? Again would like to see him stay and get a chance.

Again if true it's more money walking out The door without anything in return
That really does my head in So hoping not true

What's everyone thinking about our defence this year - stick with same or twist?
Will Basey be a starter or playing g second fiddle and find himself another player on the bench?

Few questions to see everyone opinions 😊.


1.) 14 Jun 2020 17:47:29
Thestigno 1, our defence certainly needs updating, we leaked far to many goals last season. I can't see Gerrard giving Doch Mcrorie or Murphy a run. What do we know though. Gerrard knows best, as he has done the last 2 seasons.

2.) 14 Jun 2020 18:04:49
Docherty should get a chance but will not be an automatic choice. Keep Murphy but sell Barker, Middleton and Hastie. Will see what Helander is like, given a run in the team. Sell Goldson and Kamara.

3.) 14 Jun 2020 18:05:15
Would give Jones Murphy Hastie Docherty Polster and Barjonas next season to make impact.
Sell Barker and Stewart.
Loan out the 2 McCrories and Middleton again next season.
Add 1st team GK CMD AMR and CF that should all be pushing for starts.

4.) 14 Jun 2020 21:29:29
No point loaning Middleton out if he isn’t good enough to play this season then he never will be.

5.) 14 Jun 2020 21:42:36
Buff disagree on Middleton he's only turned 20 in January still time after this season to make it. Needs game time to improve and push on. Same opinion for McPake.
Sell Stewart Hastie (was going to say last chance but never rangers class plus Middleton is year younger and better player) and Barker. Last chance Jones.

6.) 14 Jun 2020 21:55:45
Last chance Murphy.

7.) 15 Jun 2020 08:20:04
It’s all good saying sell Stewart, Barker etc but who would buy them. They will collect their wage packet every month until their contracts run out Players like Middleton, Docherty, Hastie etc are simply not good enough to make it onto our bench either.

8.) 15 Jun 2020 11:34:18
DeeMc you r exactly right re who will buy them.
Also feel u r correct re others. People cry out for them to play then demand we win league, unfortunately they r nowhere near good enough.
And I am a Doc fan.

9.) 15 Jun 2020 13:24:32
Too many players happy to sit out their contacts. Then will get some other club as a free agent.

10.) 15 Jun 2020 18:22:33
Loan McCrorie but buy another midfielder? He is what we have been missing. Nobody in there is capable of winning the ball hence why our defence has been so exposed. Sometimes you just nerd to do the basics and he does that very well. Very underrated player.

11.) 15 Jun 2020 21:45:04
Aye we're going to drop Barisic for Bassey? 😂😂😂😂.

12.) 15 Jun 2020 22:42:52
McCrorie should be 2nd choice behind jack and davis with kamara being 4th option all other DMs are surplus including Doch, am and flair players should be Hagi or Aribo and arfield on the RM being a high pressing ball winner, having Hagi as AM and Aribo as back up let's us change between 2 dms or 2 ams depending on situation.

13.) 16 Jun 2020 18:58:34
I would sell Kamara if we get a half decent offer for him, I worry that Davis won't last the season and I certainly don't see McCrorie as back up to any of our midfield. I expect him to spend another season down south if he is not sold. We need to hope that Aribo does the business and we need a couple of quality signings in midfield if we are to progress.



31 Jan 2020 22:14:17
Has kamberi actually signed yet?

Feels like it's taking forever for it to be confirmed.


1.) 31 Jan 2020 22:24:02
Just signed. Not too impressed. Hope he proves me wrong.

2.) 31 Jan 2020 22:28:22
Should be announced soon but deals done, think it was just diwn to hibs to get a striker in which they have done now.

3.) 31 Jan 2020 22:38:08
Yes he has sign it was on rangers fc facebook he was standing with gerrard with the number 23 shirt.

4.) 31 Jan 2020 22:45:11

I’m positive he loooks like he has ability and pace
Looking forward to seeing him play

Well done Stevie G

2 good looking additions to the team which I felt we badly needed

Let’s get back to winning and playing with urgency fluency and wracking up the goals and pile the pressure right on them now

Been a good day 😊.

5.) 31 Jan 2020 23:13:35
Thestigno1, I'm not to excited about the Kamberi signing - I'm not saying he's a bad player but my work mate who's a die hard Hibs fan says " he's a decent player but can be lazy" Maybe he'll step up with great Rangers players around him but at this moment in time I'm not that excited. PS - I hope he does prove me wrong though.

6.) 31 Jan 2020 23:38:31
The stuck if camberi doesn't make a good go at it, he will go back along the mate mate, simple as.

7.) 31 Jan 2020 23:42:06
Hes a decent player. Signed as a back up to our back up. Everybody eager to see hagi play though. Think we may just see a new free kick taker.

8.) 31 Jan 2020 23:55:39
Has anybody seen his 1st interview? Love the guy already.

9.) 01 Feb 2020 00:28:39
Playing up to the camera that's all, get the fans on his side, and he's smashed it.

10.) 01 Feb 2020 02:35:24
Deal done. Docherty going this other way on loan too.

11.) 01 Feb 2020 06:21:16
Good player but does he have end product for team like us his goal scoring record isn't the best.

12.) 01 Feb 2020 12:30:32
lets see how he does with Tav and Borna supplying the ammo, certainly a step up from what he has had at HIVs this year.



31 Jan 2020 19:51:12
Any news on a 3rd signing

Been awfully quiet in here tonight lol

Kamberi completes medical
Docherty seen in a Hibees top

Anyone in the know about maybe one more coming in the door?

Very pleased with the 2 additions 😊.


1.) 31 Jan 2020 20:05:11
Think that will be it.

2.) 31 Jan 2020 20:32:41
It's always nice to see new signings. Hagi? Great name, looks a good prospect. Kamberi? Guess we'll have to wait and see.

3.) 31 Jan 2020 20:36:17
SG has said he wants 1 more striker.

4.) 31 Jan 2020 20:45:45
Kamberi looked very average the times I've seen him - could we not have got better on loan?

5.) 31 Jan 2020 21:00:02
Lanza blue, my Hibs supporting mate says Kamberi is, and I quote " a decent player but is lazy at times " . Only time will tell.

6.) 31 Jan 2020 21:03:43
Kamberi strikes me as a hot and cold kinda player. He has decent positional sense and can finish. That’s half the battle when you play for a club like ours who creates lot of chances. In my opinion we needed a target man type but all we can do is put our faith in our manager and hope for the best. Our first 11 is better than the manky mobs first 11 but they have a stronger squad and the bottle to get over the line. We’ve not shown we have that yet part from the good result at the piggery. We need the older guys in the team to stand up and guide the rest.

7.) 31 Jan 2020 22:05:01
Vydra would score goals up here.



31 Jan 2020 15:18:24
Apparently kamberi very close to signing

4 lads saying. There could be a surprise 3rd

Could be the Burnley bot or someone else completely if there is going to be a 3rd

What's the thoughts?


1.) 31 Jan 2020 17:59:29
Only issue re kamberi, won’t be able to play Wednesday against hibs, also cup tied.



30 Jan 2020 21:55:50
JJ on verge of signing for middlesburgh
Feel bad for him - always thought he was going to do well for us
And wish he had
Might not have had a decent crack at it

Kimberi might be not too bad
Looks pacey and eye for goal
But that's you tube for you lol.


1.) 30 Jan 2020 22:41:25
That tackle was the end of him I think.

2.) 30 Jan 2020 22:45:27
Surely u don't need to watch youtube to know what type of player kamberi is? Ha.

3.) 30 Jan 2020 23:15:30
Marco - he only played 5 of 13 possible starts before the tackle. Gerrard just didn't want him, simple as.

4.) 30 Jan 2020 23:30:54
I know who he is but never really paid attention to be honest
Just another Hibs player never really watched him closely
Or followed him lol.

5.) 31 Jan 2020 01:04:56
Stig was that a poem?

6.) 31 Jan 2020 05:08:51
Gerrard seen him make a dodgy tackle and injure himself when he needed leaders instead of idiots. He ruined it for himself.

7.) 31 Jan 2020 06:12:57
So if Gerard doesn't want JJ, why sign him in the first place. He was playing well up until that tackle and injury. That tackle was misjudged and made out of frustration. He should have started that game instead of Gerard trying to play everything through the middle.

8.) 31 Jan 2020 06:24:52
Marco, surely he did want him or he wouldn’t have signed him?

9.) 31 Jan 2020 07:59:41
It leaves us short of options unless Middleton coming back into team.

10.) 31 Jan 2020 08:19:59
JJ was not good enough for us at Kilmarnock, but might get £1m for him if he does ok at Boro, so made business sense to sign him.

Barker, not good enough for us, should never have been signed.
Middleton released today.
Docherty to Hibs / Kamberi to us.
Flannagan to Fleetwood.

5 Out 3 in today.

11.) 31 Jan 2020 08:59:00
Not a fan of Glen Middleton at all. Also, if JJ does go you can’t just pin it on 1 incident in the Celtic game as Gerrard made a lot more mistakes that day than Jones. We all make mistakes.

12.) 31 Jan 2020 09:19:57
Middleton to me is just another carbon copy of gregg wylde will end up lower league england.

13.) 31 Jan 2020 12:26:27
Jordan jones was signed on a pre contract before Gerrard arrived so wasn’t one of Gerrard’s own signings. Would be disappointed to see him go as I feel he still has something to offer but the gaffer obviously doesn’t see something in him.

01 Jul 2020 21:02:19
The boy zungu from what I can see watching the highlights in your tube 😉

Actually does look like a player and from what I see if him I would certainly be excited to see him come to us

I know it's edited etc etc
But he does look good not heard of him before or seen him play

But yeah looks like a player I'm up for having him in the team 😁😁.


1.) 01 Jul 2020 21:51:10
From what I have seen I am not convinced. Hope this is not the guy we are signing.

2.) 02 Jul 2020 00:49:56
YouTube shows highlights of the best of his career to date and he still managed to look average. Wonder what the other 95% of his career looks like?

3.) 02 Jul 2020 07:46:51
Ooft bit harsh

But ok lol.

4.) 02 Jul 2020 10:52:30
You can’t gauge a player on you tube it could make me look good playing.



01 Jul 2020 19:54:32
The more I'm looking into the castore and sports direct link

It's not looking good?

Does mike Ashley own part of the house of Fraser groups who apparently have a stake in castore which would then mean he still has his fingers in our pie? Surely Not

Is this the ground we were going to hear today 🤔🤔🤔.


1.) 01 Jul 2020 20:08:17
Yup looks like it. shafted again.

2.) 01 Jul 2020 20:26:43
Good job, I haven’t put any money down. The fat one won’t get any money from me if I can help It. It’s too bad that our board don’t do the homework on the fine print. I holding out hope that it’s not as black and white as stated by SD. Pure embarrassment if it is. Maybe its a good deal financially I am not in the know but it is a snub to the fans who fought against this guy for so long.

3.) 01 Jul 2020 20:28:45
Surely no not again were amateurs if this is true we should boycot castore as they no what they were doing OMFG fat man must surely have our lawyer planted in ibrox or some1 one of the directors but he must have some one planted man.

4.) 01 Jul 2020 20:33:47
Ashley does own the HOF group.

5.) 01 Jul 2020 20:45:04
Looks like the fans have been lied to again.

6.) 01 Jul 2020 21:04:05
This sports direct stores have exclusive rights to seek Castore tops must be fake news.
There’s no way the board would try and pull a stunt like this. very disappointed if they have.

7.) 01 Jul 2020 21:06:50
FFs! Mike Ashley has no stake in Castore so stop the panty wetting.
Any sport supplier can sell our kit. Just don't buy from SD and buy direct from castore. It really is that simple!

8.) 01 Jul 2020 21:18:23
Always thought Ashley would reappear at some point in connection with the strip.

As you say Paul86, we've been shafted again. And we've been lied to over this.

9.) 01 Jul 2020 21:19:19
Statement out from Rangers regarding basically saying castor will have a number of high street wholesale supply arrangements. SD looks to be one of these just buy direct or from other stores.

10.) 01 Jul 2020 21:40:08
NRD, not true. No shoe can sell the strips unless they have an agreement.

11.) 01 Jul 2020 21:57:51
Some of the rubbish on here is unbearable and read Rangers statement tonight. I honestly think there is more Tim’s on here than Teddies🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧.

12.) 01 Jul 2020 23:26:06
Why have we been shafted as said above any sports retailer can stock our strips just like they can any other team but can they sell them that’s up to you the fans buy online or straight from new super store it’s easy.

13.) 01 Jul 2020 23:50:02
Unacceptable if a single strip goes on sale in sports direct. Another bit of trust gone for me, if its true.

14.) 02 Jul 2020 08:41:21
Stigno Ashe owns House of Fraser.

15.) 02 Jul 2020 08:42:09
A search of who owns Castore indicates the Fraser group are the major shareholders in Castore
MA owns 61.7 % off Fraser group.
Crux is how much are we getting from deal if this all comes out to be true.
I have wrote on many occasions he would not be easy to get rid off. What we need to do is erode his influence.
Will be interesting to find out what court order says.

16.) 02 Jul 2020 08:45:23
NRD, you're spot on pal. Just per usual some supporters panicking over nothing on this occasion and now grasping how the retail business generates. All we need to know is that rangers and castore are the ones who benefit from our merchandise sales. This time we hold all the rights and thank god its now the dog wagging the tail. Be very happy in the knowledge our club benefits greatly from our new kit partnership with castore, that's all i'm and we should be interested in here. Stop looking for snow when there's none!

17.) 02 Jul 2020 08:48:15
I'm pretty sure the board would have known fine well that Ashley was involved. The guy and his lawyers have us tied in knots. We won't ever get rid of this guy now.

Probably the best hope is for him to buy us outright - He might see some value in having a club competing in Europe every year.

18.) 02 Jul 2020 08:06:54
People need to chill out man. Castore clearly said they will have deals with high street retailers to sell the kit but those deals are separate from any deal with the club.

so SD, JD or any other retailer can have a deal with Castore to sell the strips but we still get our share from Castore from any sales made.

Ashley is not involved with this retail deal we have with Castore, any fans of the other mob on here its the same deal use have with Adidas. They have a retail deal in place with JD to sell your kits but you still get whatever your contract with Adidas is for each sale regardless.

19.) 02 Jul 2020 10:31:07
How on earth can sports direct have exclusive rights? Think about it - we’ve sold practically 50,000 on line already of which Ashley isn’t getting a penny.
NRD is right, my goodness a bit of skullduggery by the fat man and again our board are liars and cheats and god knows what .

He doesn't hold anything over us . I for one will still never enter a sports direct store.
What about him blagging our store for years for a pound. He did well out of that eh? Come on boys.

20.) 02 Jul 2020 10:33:53
Statement has come out from Rangers Board Castore is sole partner and they can sell to High Street Retail. Simple don't buy from any of Ashley's outlets if he gets his grubby hands on our merchandise. Lots of other places to get the kit.

21.) 02 Jul 2020 11:14:07
Mols, the post says exclusive from august 1st. Old agreement still active till 31st july I believe.

22.) 02 Jul 2020 13:24:06
Herewego must be true if Ashley says so, also old agreement finished 1/7



01 Jul 2020 18:31:03
What's everyone thoughts on this Lyle Taylor

Would he be an asset to improve the squad
Wouldn't want him as our replacement for Morelos but as a squad player?

What's the thoughts on him?


1.) 01 Jul 2020 19:07:09
No idea not sure anyone knows much other than the usual highlights reels. Last player we got from them was decent and if it annoys bowyer again it's an added incentive.

2.) 01 Jul 2020 19:26:38
I think ivan toney is out our reach price wise and we won't/ shouldn't be paying £7+ for him. Peterbourough asking for way too much for me, but i suppose they're only looking out for themselves, which you can't blame them for!

3.) 01 Jul 2020 19:39:46
See he’s apparently been offered to Napoli too.

4.) 01 Jul 2020 19:42:59
Sorry meant to add that last comment to my Morelos post

So too make it clear it’s Morelos supposed to have been offered to Napoli NOT Lyle Taylor 👍.



01 Jul 2020 18:05:32
Well guys if going with different media headlines
It's definitely sounding like Morelos is going to be sold this summer

I hope we have a top striker or 2 to replace him and add to the striking options going forward if it's true
And I hope it's minimum £15m plus add ons if he's sold

As much as I have moaned about him he tops the charts with his goal scoring exploits just wish he lost the crazy attitude at times and stayed on park and was available for all games
But then again he might not be the same striker without the craziness

If he does go I wish him the best of luck and I hope he continues to score barrow loads of goals - hopefully not against us in Europe At any point 😉

If he stays I hope he continues to give his all for the club while his agent is looking for another club for him and helps us win the league this coming Season.

Personally I would like to see him stay and another top striker to join him up front would be fantastic

If he goes hope we sign 2 top strikers again to help us win that league that has eluded us for too long now

#55#letsgo 🇳🇱.


1.) 01 Jul 2020 19:23:52
If he does go, which, according to the media, looks more and more likely, then I hope there is a bidding war. Only then will we get top dollar. Latest club to be allegedly interested is Everton.
Hope the monies he brings in is spent wisely and the best of luck to him.

2.) 01 Jul 2020 19:30:36
I know defoe is 37 years old but a fit defoe will play a big part in our chances of winning the league. The wee man will score important goals for us, even if its mostly coming from him coming off the subs bench to do it! He's still a quality finisher and model professional, who's still as fit as a fiddle! 👌.

3.) 01 Jul 2020 19:51:06
People go on about Morelos loosing his hot head but he was the same in Finland and never got the bookings he gets here. The guy was blatantly kicked, Barged and had a player change direction to run his studs down his calf.

He was singled out and the refs in Scotland let it happen. the boy won't get sent off or booked anywhere near as much if he goes to another league. If he goes we will miss him badly.

4.) 01 Jul 2020 20:00:11
SGL - completely understand where you are coming from re Defoe, but unfortunately, he cannot be our main striker. At his age, no matter how fit he is, the games and the physicality will take it’s toll.

I think we need three strikers to be able to mount a serious challenge on celtic. If Morelos stays, then it’s Defoe and one other. If SG is only thinking about SPFL glory then it will Shankland, Dykes or Cosgrove.

However, if Europe is also on his mind then he has to look elsewhere and put 6 or 7 million in his wallet.
Still Lewis Ferguson is on his way.

5.) 01 Jul 2020 20:03:19
Why does everyone listen to the media? I don’t understand it.
99% of the time everyone hates the media but are happy to go along with it if it suits them.

6.) 01 Jul 2020 20:11:18
KJ - the media in all it’s inglorious beauty is our only source of information. Sites like this is for our fantasies and our angst.

7.) 01 Jul 2020 20:41:25
Well said true blue

When it’s the only information available it’s good to come on here and air the views and look for fellow supporters who might be in the know to set the record straight 😊.

8.) 02 Jul 2020 10:53:59
True blue what have the media got right this season regarding our signings?



01 Jul 2020 09:48:10
New Castore video for the launch of the strip was really good I thought brought out emotion and was heart felt 😊

And I like the strip material looks good quality 😊.


1.) 01 Jul 2020 10:13:31
great video - a lot of us of a certain age can relate to this,
we are the people, we have been on our knees, now its time to take back what we are owed and get back to where we always should be
Onward and upward.

2.) 01 Jul 2020 10:23:19
100% agree.
The strips will fly off the shelves!
The most loyal fans in the world. 👍.

3.) 01 Jul 2020 11:18:36
only 50K available just now, just ordered one for my daughter.

4.) 01 Jul 2020 11:25:52
Yes totally agree as all of us were that wee boy in the video desparate to own and wear our new rangers top.
Its always been a massive thing for our family and i'm sure for the majority of our families getting to see then buy our new kit, especially the home top for me!

5.) 01 Jul 2020 11:29:29
I saw on the rangers page that there is only 50000 tops in the first drop which is really a small number considering how large the fan base. I hope it's not too long before the next drop of tops is made or there's going to a few disgruntled bears out there. Negativity aside I'm looking forward to one of our most important seasons for a generation and I honestly think we will do more than stop 9.75 in a row but think we will retake the treble from the smelly tramps from the dark side. Hope ya'll are keeping safe follow bears, onwards and upwards.

6.) 01 Jul 2020 13:02:54
Hopefully the players are good enough to wear it now.

7.) 01 Jul 2020 13:15:34
Dsquare first drop 50 k is good. Three million.
Remember we always do in batches, they need to be made.
Also mid august for kids, then away strip, third strip. Reality is u want to also target Xmas market, by then I’d hope we sell about 250000 tops.

Castore have also said there investors want to remain private but one of them is one of the wealthiest family’s in the U. K.
which would suggest it could be the likes of the Reuben brothers who are big Chelsea fans? Billionaires
Or you have the James ratcliffe guy

But I’m thinking more like the rueben brothers just my opinion lol since the like football etc.

I bloody hope not

Steven Fletcher is scraping the barrow I’m sorry he’s no where good enough for a team that’s trying to win things and trying to move forward and build for the future

No way do I want the like of Steven fletcher near Rangers
No offence to the guy

But it’s a huge NO NO from me.

Guess we won’t find out if any are true. Unless they actually sign
Giving the recent signings have gone undetected by media.

Yeah have seen all the links to him today

Never heard of him to be honest Until today

So can’t say what he can and can’t bring to the squad

But if he can score and makes the squad better at a low cost To the club why not 😊.
