Anyone got any idea who the three trialists are who are lining up against Cambridge today? No making stuff up please.


1.) 16 Jul 2019 11:46:13
All young boys freed by EPL teams.

2.) 16 Jul 2019 11:47:16
I heard it was snap crackle and pop.

3.) 16 Jul 2019 14:11:20
Rachi from spurs, young boy from man city is the only two i know.

4.) 16 Jul 2019 14:55:57
Royal blue they r already signed.

5.) 16 Jul 2019 15:24:51
John, i'm sure Albert rachi was a trialist today. He has not signed yet.

6.) 16 Jul 2019 16:14:19
Heard from a reliable source it was Larry, Curly and Mo?

7.) 16 Jul 2019 16:16:30
Whatever. He was a named player in 9-1 win against Huddersfield.

8.) 16 Jul 2019 19:06:53
My boy thinks one of the loan players was Kane from Liverpool. He got text from mate who played for Dundee
Not sure the rule re playing another clubs player as a trialists.
I know we did it with Ruth last year.

9.) 16 Jul 2019 19:09:47
Royal blue young boy hosler we signed from Man City played mate.

10.) 16 Jul 2019 20:04:56
Royal blue, Rachi and Hosler have both signed and both played for the u18s today. The 3 trialists were playing for the development squad also today. No idea who they are though.

11.) 16 Jul 2019 20:57:13
Awww my bad musta saw something and got confused. can't see anything online about rachi signing though.

12.) 16 Jul 2019 23:15:13
1 of the trialists was Max Hutchinson, son of former Scotland player Don.

13.) 17 Jul 2019 00:43:19
John he was a trialist in the 9-1 game as well says so in the news real regarding the game if u just read it all will be clear.

14.) 17 Jul 2019 09:12:18
Ok Alexander. Very unusual to name him and not put him down as trialist in Huddersfield game.

15.) 17 Jul 2019 11:07:50
Think it was Tom, Dick and Harry.



08 May 2019 13:10:42
Apparently we are after Zander Clark for £1m? Anyone else think that's madness when Liam Kelly is apparently available for £50k? Clark is decent but is he any better than Fod or Alnwick?


1.) 08 May 2019 13:52:03
Agree mate.

2.) 08 May 2019 15:09:40
He got beat from 40 yards at the weekend so I hope we’re not paying £1m.

3.) 08 May 2019 16:20:23
Its'crazy' that would even have to pay 50k for Kelly!

4.) 08 May 2019 16:40:03
I would rather we re-signed our former young goalkeeper, liam kelly.
Said before on here that kelly should never have been let go to livingston. He's the natural successor to allan mcgregor as far as i'm concerned!

5.) 08 May 2019 18:23:49
Supercooper he was not let go. He left at end of contract as we signed McGregor.

6.) 08 May 2019 19:12:41
SC11 not one person in the coaching team gives two hoots who you think is McGregors natural successor. Your like a broken record going on and on and on about Kelly. HE LEFT, HE WANTED TO GO. Change the record.

7.) 08 May 2019 19:44:29
L17 correct mate. If we kept or signed everyone coops said we would have a squad of 80.

8.) 08 May 2019 20:29:34
JBoy 21 highly rates them all ;-) apart fae Shinnie he has always stated his dislike of Shinnie or has been consistent in saying he was not being good enough.

9.) 08 May 2019 20:40:38
Chill we have 2 McCrories lol.

10.) 09 May 2019 04:04:53
If we sign him it'll be for nothing remotely close to £1m. Behave.

11.) 09 May 2019 07:19:15
We aren’t after him for £1 million killie have priced him at that.

12.) 09 May 2019 10:19:54
Would help if he played for killie Dee haha he’s st Johnstone goalie, imo liam kelly would be ideal replacement, great keeper with a great attitude.

13.) 09 May 2019 10:22:24
Doesn't play for Killie mate.

14.) 09 May 2019 12:25:20
Exactly Jboy and in my honest opinion I truly believe that they’d all be future captains 🙈.

15.) 09 May 2019 18:59:17
I don’t believe that anyone on the coaching team gives two hoots about what anyone thinks on here!

Is SC’s opinion less worthy than the rest on here?

Here’s a question - if you could strengthen one position, what would it be? Not asking for names, just if you could upgrade at any position or player type.

For me it would be a midfield enforcer type. All the teams we struggle with, Killie, Aberdeen, Hearts, Motherwell - they all play a very physical game. Walter Smith filled his second Rangers side with players who can handle that, whereas wee have too many nice footballers.

See when we go to play Killie away and have Dicker and Power kicking lumps out of us, which midfield 3 do you think would be more effective




I think the first 3 would look great in Europe but would be posted missing at Rugby Park. I think the second 3 would get stuck in and do the dirty work to let Kent and Hagi etc play.

There has never been a great Rangers team which was 100% Laudrups. You need an Ian Ferguson, a Lee McCulloch, an Alex Rae. You need boys that will stand up. In the current squad, not counting the boys on loan, we have Jack and at a push maybe Arfield, Buff and Katic.


1.) 04 Mar 2020 17:55:49
Another brown and gough types are what we have been needing as all this trying to find goldson a partner is not working. Why not try another partnership and see if that works as maybe its goldson who is the problem.

2.) 04 Mar 2020 18:17:21
A leader of men. Regardless of what position they play someone who is a born winner.

3.) 04 Mar 2020 18:17:48
2 quality centre halfs and one potential captain without doubt.

4.) 04 Mar 2020 18:52:00
I’d love to see a John Terry type in defence and a Roy Keane type in midfield I appreciate there’s a limited amount of these guys hope Ross Wilson got finger on the pulse.

5.) 04 Mar 2020 19:18:52
I would get a complete centre half who can read the game, strong in the air, tough in the tackle and can play a bit. I have no idea where we could get one of those though😂

All our centre halfs have good points but unfortunately they all have major flaws too.

6.) 04 Mar 2020 21:16:34
1 position coach.



29 Feb 2020 18:20:06
Yet another shocking first half performance domestically. Absolutely no idea why we can’t identify and correct why this keeps happening. Formation and style of play clearly need tweaked from what works in Europe.




27 Feb 2020 21:34:13
If the Mhanks go out would you not love to get Copenhagen in the next round? Good away day, definitely beatable plus would be funny to beat the team that put them out.


1.) 28 Feb 2020 09:59:40
Totally agree Swagman. We’ve already beaten a better Danish side this season 👍.



27 Feb 2020 21:19:53
We should be trying to sign this guy Nelsson who is playing for Copenhagen. Only 21 and looks a fantastic player.




25 Feb 2020 17:11:56
Here’s a wee test lads - find me a Celtic fan who isn’t finding this hilarious and isn’t desperate for us to keep Stevie G. When the enemy are backing your manager you know he’s murder.


1.) 25 Feb 2020 17:55:15
We all know what is murder, swagman, and it's your hysterical, nonsensical posts all full of hate for the team I support and you so obviously despise.

2.) 25 Feb 2020 17:59:15
You're murder, gee it a rest pal, its boring reading the same old thing from you all the time! You've had your fun, so move on for god's sake!

3.) 25 Feb 2020 18:03:46
Same as we all said Lennon was rangers best signing
We all thought it was hilariously embarrassing, knee jerk reaction even Tim fans thoughts the same
Let’s hope SG works out
You need to get a grip this never ending tirade is way way beyond the realms of reality
If you think we’ve not improved your deluded.

4.) 25 Feb 2020 18:13:26
Swagman I couldn’t care less what any Celtic fan thinks of us.

5.) 25 Feb 2020 18:22:20
You’ve got it totally the wrong way round there mate. I’m the only one out of the lot of you who loves the club, the rest of you love the manager.

Blue blue sea - last season we finished 9 points behind Celtic. We’re not any closer. Those are the FACTS. Not some subjective opinion on what player is better than another. Explain how that is improvement using only FACTS please.

6.) 25 Feb 2020 18:24:56
Lads, I’ll be here after every poor result until we get a proper manager. You’ll all come over to my way of thinking eventually. And I actually think we’ll beat Braga tomorrow purely because they are so open at the back that we’ll get chances, so don’t be using that to make out he’s Klopp. It’ll be back to normal service against Hearts.

7.) 25 Feb 2020 18:50:40
Again deluded and by the way you’re right we finished 9 behind but the fatal flaw in your argument season still going at moment so how do you know we won’t improve we might win Scottish cup as usual you’re hatred is clouding judgement
I’ve never know as so called fan to be so negative about the team you purport to support more than the rest of us
You need a night off mate.

8.) 25 Feb 2020 19:07:32
How do I know we won’t improve? I’ve been watching without blinkers the last two seasons. 😂

Don’t hate anyone mate, life’s too short. Just know an out of his depth charlatan when I see one. 👍.

9.) 25 Feb 2020 20:24:13

Swagman is not having a hatred to the club well I don't think so anyway

He’s peed off with the current results like the rest of us and know a bit where he is coming from I have many friends from the dark side infactt some of my best friends are from the dark side and all I get is text after text

The RAnGERS ARE COMiNG with big laughing emojis

After reeling them before winter break we wee going to win the league hands down lol

So yeah I can see where he’s Coming from pure frustration and end of day of you live in the gold fish bowl of glasgow and being brought up Rangers or Celtic doesn’t matter most roc the time about Europe
It’s mainly down to getting the better of our biggest rivals and winning the league and being called champions that matters and right now it ain’t happening and not happened. For past 8 years going on 9

For the love of god whether it’s gerrard or not we need to win league next season and wipe that grin and smirks off there faces once and for all

If swagman doesn’t like gerrard it’s person choice and opinion and right now with the league most likely lost there’s not much to argue in facts that we’re still no better off than last season
And come next season we definitely need to take a big stride forward once again
But it could be down to finances and who we can get and who we can’t and who they across the city can bring in to an already successful team

I would be more pleased if the squad was fighting right up to the last game than losing it in February and I’m sure everyone would agree on that players have let him down big time but he also has put his hands up at times and rightly so
If here next year he also needs to take a big stride forward in getting tactics spot on throughout a season where you really can’t afford to drop points as they across the city won’t be just like they haven’t been doing for past 8 seasons 👍.

10.) 25 Feb 2020 20:28:11
Also terrible result for our fringe players getting beat 2/ 1 off Patrick so much for trying to fight for your place lads 😳.

11.) 25 Feb 2020 20:30:39
Swagman your wrong about us beating Braga nice dream but based on what I saw in Glasgow there ain’t a cats chance in hell of that happening. Hope I’m wrong but I always tell it as it is no blinkers. Insofar as Gerrard is concerned it’s a tough one he has been great for the club but at the same time his inexperience has been there for all to see. Is he the right man for next season not an easy answer in some ways yes in other ways no but I think he will still be the manager next season so time will tell. Really depends on how much money there is, where it’s coming from and has he learned from his mistakes that’s still up for debate.

12.) 25 Feb 2020 20:42:36
Can't see us going through unfortunately, we just can't seem to string together a few decent performances, I'm on the fence with sg but I do agree that some people seem to give sg a easier ride because of who he is.

13.) 25 Feb 2020 21:17:31
Glad to see some other folk commenting who haven’t been brainwashed or drank the kool aid!

I don’t dislike Gerrard. I just don’t think he’s capable. I don’t hate my dog because he can’t ride a bike. But I wouldn’t sign him up for the Tour De France.

14.) 25 Feb 2020 22:34:15
Nothing wrong with thewagsmans views, he's entitled to them, same as the rest of us. He could maybe change the record occasionally though. We get it you don't rate the manager.

15.) 25 Feb 2020 22:39:05
Mind that time you laughed when Lennon was appointed, and told the world Gerrard was the man to claim 55😂 Lennon will claim 55 before another rangers captain lifts another trophy. Quadruple treble, just for another record, hail hail.

16.) 25 Feb 2020 22:43:09
Swags, we will finish with more points in SPL than we did last year. 64 points just now and finished with 78 last year. 27 points to play for so we will definitely eclips last year. there's your improvement!

Problem is that Celtic have improved as well. 87 points last year and 76 already with 24 points to play for so they will eclipse last years total also.

If Rangers don't get more points than last year i will be the first to come back on here and bow to you superior knowledge swags but we all know that it won't come to that.

17.) 25 Feb 2020 22:51:12
Thestign1, we all know theswagman doesn't think sg is the man for rangers fc, its the constent slaughtering of sg that annoys me, theswagman needs to change the record, he never says anything at all only about sg, i thought this was a banter site, not a slag steven gerrard non stop site.

18.) 25 Feb 2020 23:06:34
Wow, we might be a whole 3 or 4 points better off. I’ll reward with a slow, sarcastic hand clap 👏

That’s the difference of a lucky deflection or a bad miss here or there.

19.) 25 Feb 2020 23:33:59
heres a curveball for tomorrow night. ojo with his pace can get in behind the braga high line, there pushed up to the halfway line most of the time. only thing is we need a midfielder that can play a forward pass instead of sideways and backwards

i know i know ojo but he's the only one i can see that's got the pace to trouble them.

20.) 25 Feb 2020 23:37:18
One things for sure Swagman, you get us talking on this site and that helps to keep it online.

You do seem to go over the top with your continued lambasting of Stevie tho when you are well aware he was an experimental signing and is still learning the Scottish game.
No point in laying all the blame on Stevie, the board accepted and authorised his signing.

Granted he does not seem to be learning fast enough for a lot of our supporters including yourself tho.

A lot of your opinions will make sense to some on here swags.
In my opinion you should not make your hostile feelings towards our manager feel like they should be accepted by us.

I have given my opinion on Stevie loads o times on here saying no silver in next 2 years and he will go on his own accord a broken and disheartened man.

All this is just MY opinions mate.

Cheers mate we know you are a dedicated supporter of our RANGERS FC.

21.) 26 Feb 2020 00:02:19
Theswagmann, it would be crazy to enter the dog in the toure de france, especially if he can't even go a bike, can't you teach him, it wouldn't take youse long, just like your putting gerrard right, eh.

Not surprised he’s losing the dressing room. One bad game and you’re dropped, unless you’re one of his pet players (Goldson, Kent, Aribo, Tav) then you can have as many as you want and never get bombed out. Then any time we lose because he is tactically inept he chucks the players in front of the bus and says “they didn’t want it enough” despite everyone knowing exactly how we will play and how to cause us problems.

Kirkcaldy what do they put in the water in Fife? Every other football club in the world if the team is honking the manager carries the can. But for some reason Stevie G the celebrity gets a pass and his players get the blame, despite every manager in Scotland knowing exactly what his “tactics” will be before every game.

Outside of Morelos, Barasic is the most valuable player in the squad. First choice for Croatia, just entering his peak at 27, can attack AND defend, about to play in the Euros, fantastic at deadballs. He's a £20m left back all day.

Kent has been a waste of £7m.

Looking at how organised, aggressive and solid Livi were tonight I would take Gary Holt in a heartbeat. To have them challenging for Europe and taking points off the old firm on their resources is an unbelievable achievement.

Absolutely they do but they’re not a favourite so they don’t get a chance while Tav, Goldson etc get umpteen.

McPake went to Dundee first half of the season and was too lightweight, got bullied by grown men. Needs to develop his physique a bit.

Norway have thrown Haaland straight in at the same age. We are the only country in the world where we still talk about players as young and promising at 24, 25. If he’s good enough, which he is, get him in.

He didn’t fold in a televised FA cup game against arguably the best club side in the world, can’t see him flapping against Israel.
