Damian Garcia looking to be finalised this week according to H&H.

Very excited about this one.


1.) 11 Jun 2024 16:08:53
This is one I’m not even allowing myself to believe until he’s standing with the scarf above his head.

2.) 11 Jun 2024 16:42:58
This would be the best and biggest signing of the lot. looks like koppen knows players from all over the world something we've needed for years.

3.) 11 Jun 2024 16:56:06
The one a see that could be huge for us, fingers crossed.

4.) 11 Jun 2024 16:56:30
I've never heard of any of these players so anyone willing to go out on a limb and tell me who Is the most exciting signing.

5.) 11 Jun 2024 17:12:46
Same NRD never seen any of our signings apart from Cortes, have watched them on YouTube, but like everyone else we can't really judge them on that evidence, but Garcia looks a player mate.

6.) 11 Jun 2024 17:38:55
Cheers My Star.
Hate looking at YouTube as the highlight reels only show best bits. We seem to be targeting a different type of player which is exciting and refreshing.

7.) 11 Jun 2024 20:36:38
Garcia is a guy who was instrumental in his country winning the under 21 World Cup, that is some achievement for a young player. He’s different from what we have now. Some are saying Jack replacement tbh idk how they could say that unless they’ve been watching Uruguayan ?? football.

But supposedly a special-ist CDM, just basically meaning that’s his position and if he’s on the park that’s the job he will do- he only does that one role but does it beyond his years as a 20-year-old. You don’t really hear of that many players so good at one position by 20. If Rangers do everything, they can to help this young guy settle, this signing could be inspired. Big if, but big talent.

8.) 11 Jun 2024 21:00:49
Is he better than Cifuentes?



10 Jun 2024 14:49:37
Seems ridvan is off back to besiktas.

Injuries stopping a real talented player, shame.

Get our 4.45m back and cancellation of the sell on and run.


1.) 10 Jun 2024 15:38:34
Would be expecting a better fee than what we paid. In todays market I'd be looking for our fee back with 1.5m on top and add ons with sell on clause.

2.) 10 Jun 2024 15:41:30
His agent has just rubbished the claims.

3.) 10 jun 2024 15:46:49
had a few good moments, never stood out and always injured, too small for me so take what we can replace and move on.

4.) 10 Jun 2024 15:54:38
No he’s not. This is why you shouldn’t believe click bait nonsense. In fact one site ‘sports world’ wrote a story basically saying he’s off back to Turkey and then the same site (sports world) wrote a story about 30mins later stating Yilmaz himself has stated that he will not be returning to Turkey this window ?. These sites literally write any old crap just so that they can then write another story dismissing the first! ? 2 clicks for the price of one!

5.) 10 Jun 2024 16:55:23
Correct gers nonsense again from Turkey, he's sold he ain't going too turkey, he needs a good preseason behind him they we make a good profit on him, our best lb for donkeys yeats.

6.) 10 Jun 2024 17:54:38
Seems we better just sign giants for every position ?.

7.) 10 Jun 2024 18:30:04
Giant winners. Someone I know said he’d never make it in our league because he’s too small then yilmaz went on a pretty decent run after that before getting injured and it was never mentioned again until now.

8.) 10 Jun 2024 20:12:04
It worked for Gerrard, storm.

9.) 10 jun 2024 20:19:08
I'll repeat, i believe he’s too small, that’s my opinion and nothing he has done has changed that, all very well running forward constantly at home to st johnstone, imho i’m not convinced.

why do you only come on here when you see my name kid, you do know i’m in my 70s and enjoy this, i’ve followed my club way over 65 yrs, do you not like honest opinions that don’t agree with yours?

10.) 10 jun 2024 20:54:36
also worked for martin o’neil, but that’s neither here nor there
trying to belittle a man at every turn is pathetic

i have my opinion, you just stick to
great post john
great post mph
and wait fir every opportunity to attack someone else, just leave me be please i have no time for sychophantic childred maskarafing as adults.

11.) 10 Jun 2024 21:17:02
Leave you be? You give as good as you get at every turn then play the victim all the time and I can see right through it.

12.) 10 Jun 2024 21:38:18
Right guys cut the ?, can't be civil then just ignore, not antagonise each other, meant to be fun, firm but fair, we all want the best for our team.



06 Jun 2024 21:00:07
2 saudi clubs interested in Tav, not just ettifaq. Bids expected in coming days.

Talks held with Rrahmani's agents in Mexico, willing to offer €6m euros (apparently) which is double Spartas offer.

On another side note, Makengos agent has started following the club's socials.


1.) 06 Jun 2024 21:18:29
Makengoblooks out our price range from the web. same agent as bastshyi. Could that start up again?

2.) 06 Jun 2024 21:26:18
Though I might be looking at the wrong Makengo!

3.) 06 Jun 2024 21:38:30
Who is Makengo? Haven't seen anyone with that name linked.

4.) 06 Jun 2024 21:44:36

5.) 06 Jun 2024 21:47:44
Makengo is Clinton Nsiala-Makengo I believe. Could be wrong though.

6.) 06 Jun 2024 21:50:14
My star. if that's who he meant they sound nothing alike ?

I had a look to see who his agent was but can't see anything about it. Any idea who it is?

7.) 06 Jun 2024 22:10:30
Your correct Ayrshire French/ DR Congo dual nationality I believe.

8.) 06 Jun 2024 22:12:23
EKXELLENCE is the agency.

9.) 06 Jun 2024 22:20:51
Small stable by the look of it, they have a Belgian left winger, at juve, sure Clement is aware of him, Samuel Mbangula 20, LW main, RW/ CF other positions.

10.) 06 Jun 2024 22:43:09
I’ve seen this on Twitter. €6m seems unrealistic to me. Would the club really spend that much on one player when so much more is needed throughout the squad?

Rangers had 5 out of contract players, and 2 EPL loans, just walk out the club this summer. Most of them were starters when fit. I imagine several others will be sold (McCrorie, etc) . This could easily be a window where Rangers lose ten players at least. Surely the transfer budget would be spread around throughout squad.

Spending that much in one guy is risky. Look at the Danilo situation. You spend big in one guy, he gets a season ending injury, and that money is just sitting in the treatment table all year.

11.) 06 Jun 2024 23:11:47
Generic but if you sell Lammers for €5m which the fee I've seen quoted then it's a €1m outlay. Wages saved from the ooc players and now with concrete rumours of bids incoming for Tav, Hagi telling his agents to find him the right club for him and others expected to leave for fees then I think its worth it especially if he scores the required goals and with the number of frees and cheap deals we are finding its worth the risk.

12.) 06 Jun 2024 23:37:38
Ayrshire in an ideal world that Lammers proposal works out well. Reality is, if we got 5 then we’d walk away with 4.5 and the 6 we pay is 6.5 the time we add in additionals.

13.) 06 Jun 2024 23:45:31
It’s salvia Prague that’s interested in him not Sparta.

14.) 07 Jun 2024 00:10:21
We need quality, we need goals so if it's there then we'll have to pay for it. Lots of ins and outs and ways to balance the books.

15.) 07 Jun 2024 00:43:30
If Sparta are offering €3m can’t see us offering €6m surely we would offer same or a little more?

16.) 07 Jun 2024 09:55:17
If 6m is the bulk of our budget we are in trouble generic. Players like Dessers, lammers, Cantwell, Yilmaz, tav and Goldson could all be on the way out and maybe Butland they won’t leave for nothing will they? So there is going to be money to spend. I know I’d rather a 6m player of real quality rather than 3 matondo level players. A few signings of top quality is needed supplemented with a few clever bosmans and players nearing the end of the contract on a cut price deal.

17.) 07 Jun 2024 10:24:29
GRF why is it unrealistic? We dropped the same amount on 2 separate strikers last season.

And yes, makengo is the centre half who is OOC.

18.) 07 Jun 2024 15:09:00
We are making same mistakes as last season getting rid of starters and bringing in players untested in spl which means our overall squad does not get stronger if your replacing a first team player you should try keep the former no1 pick at club for at least 6 months so squad is stronger as a whole and if new player doesn’t work out can revert to Previous first pick

Last year we moved on players and replaced them with some that were not any better than what we had wasting another season and a lot of money.



03 Jun 2024 22:24:04
Reputable Saudi media stating ettifaq are ramping up efforts for our "leaders".


1.) 03 Jun 2024 22:31:25

2.) 03 Jun 2024 22:41:01
Seen that Tj here's hoping, possibly decent cash? if true.

3.) 03 Jun 2024 23:31:18
£15 for both n i'd accept.

4.) 04 Jun 2024 00:26:42
Do these Arabs not want Shankland, they could treat him as a roundabout, bossed by 2 useless lumps from Gibraltar, so let's make this the very last mention of him please.

5.) 04 Jun 2024 00:38:14
Both would need to be crazy to knock back the cash they have to offer and it’s the right time for our club to say thanks and good luck.

6.) 04 Jun 2024 06:16:34
£15 Is that buy one get one free? ????.

7.) 04 Jun 2024 06:20:37
Can’t be true, SWS has given assurances to the Tav out brigade (yes apparently that’s a thing now) that he’s staying?

8.) 04 Jun 2024 07:07:03
Leaders! Of what? continual failure and crushing of our hopes never turning it on when it's needed always hiding,

9.) 04 Jun 2024 07:13:35
Leaders ???.

10.) 04 Jun 2024 07:15:36
Fingers crossed this happens.

11.) 04 Jun 2024 07:57:25
Calm down Dado pal, it's only my opinion mate ?.

12.) 04 Jun 2024 08:08:24
£5-10 mill for both and I'd be happy and gives us money to rebuild the squad

Imo we already have a ready made replacement for tav in sterling.

13.) 04 Jun 2024 08:11:27
StevieG2, round it up to £20 and theve got a deal.

14.) 04 Jun 2024 08:11:46
Would be almost 80k week saved on wages from 2 players alone.

Would be ridiculous not to sell tbh.

15.) 04 Jun 2024 08:17:30
It's got to blue, or we're not getting any further fwd next season, no matter how much SWS believes he'll stay, if he can't see tavs done, well he's not been to specsavers???.

16.) 04 Jun 2024 08:47:51
Without getting into the ‘these two cost us the league on their own debate’. Not sure there’s enough out there that Gerrard is actually wanting them. I don’t think he’s got mega bucks like the PIF clubs but his signings last year were around the bracket we’d be wanting for them.

Just looking forward to the posters who would ‘walk them to the airport’ start demanding big bucks for them. What I would say is, if we’re losing these two. We need to lose them asap and bring in replacements.

17.) 04 Jun 2024 08:49:04
Nobody would ever have an issue your your opinion SWS, but to try and divide your fellow rangers supporters into a cohort called ‘Tav out brigade’ is quite a d**kish thing to do and completely lacks class.

18.) 04 Jun 2024 08:52:08
Correct tjs, 4 million a year both have two years left, 8 million.
Re invest half in salary, use other half reduce out goings.

19.) 04 Jun 2024 08:55:47
I like and rate sterling and if it comes to pass he becomes the replacement for tav then that's fine but i'll say here and now and i include sterling when i'm saying this ie. we will never replace tav with a right back who plays non stop for rangers and is never injured and always available with a honed body that is never injured ? Tav is an absolute athlete/ machine of a man ???.

20.) 04 Jun 2024 09:04:54
SWS he's 33 in october. The injuries will creep in. And the absolute machine part of him will dwindle its only natural mate. Its time.

21.) 04 Jun 2024 09:10:55
Sir walter not anymorw. Rapid decline once his goals dried up towards end if season u see just how bad he is defensively.

22.) 04 Jun 2024 09:14:22
Non stop, never injured, honed body, athlete and machine of a man. Jesus Christ man the likes of Dundee and Ross county are targeting him because he's the weak link. Celtic could sell maeda for 50 million based on YouTube clips of him v tavernier alone. I'll say it again, a bang average winger has our captain on toast and anyone who wants us to keep him as a player and/ or captain can start their own "happy to finish 2nd brigade"

23.) 04 Jun 2024 09:47:40
Walter he is a machine but he has lost a yard or two this season and not tracking back enough or putting effort into tracking back amount of times I’ve shouted look at him jogging back is ridiculous

He’s been a great servant but unfortunately not been successful as we all wish he had been
Time for him and Goldson to go so we can move on and move forward as a club
And I wish them both all the very best for their remaking football careers.

24.) 04 Jun 2024 09:48:52
Sounds like your crushing on him there SWS, ?
In all seriousness tho, he's been a good servant and a good captain off the field and a good role model, a good offer and it would make sense to free his wages also, goldson, hasn't been the same all season, we need a ch that wins headers.

25.) 04 Jun 2024 09:58:46
Gal ??.

26.) 04 Jun 2024 10:46:10
Tav 2/ 3 years ago, yes, not anymore though, he commits fwd, he can't get back now.

27.) 04 Jun 2024 10:46:16
Coops changed his Ryan Kent pjs to captain Tav ones ?.

Stevie £15 is a bit much I would go with £10
And couple of ginger bottles.

28.) 04 Jun 2024 12:00:14
Stig i can alwats remember a wet night away to falkirk in championship. Think we were 2 nil up and from memory got beat 3-2. Young winger hypottle gav tav nightmares absolutely roasted him.

29.) 04 Jun 2024 12:01:23

All staying!

30.) 04 Jun 2024 12:07:05
? think yous awe know a mean £ms lol

If Saudis are want to pay £130m for rubbish English pl players they can pay £15m for rubbish spl players lol

I live tav btw
Incase yous never noticed, haha
But £10m If Saudis want him n I’d do it.

31.) 04 Jun 2024 12:08:17
If an offer came in from Saudi that would relieve Rangers from the obligation to pay 7m over next couple of years to Tax and Goldilocks, I don't think they will haggle to aggressively over the front end fee.

32.) 04 Jun 2024 13:09:26
Storm, i'm on the lookout for your dessers pj's next mate ?Let me know if they're made to measure mate because if tav leaves i'm wanting a pair ?.

33.) 04 Jun 2024 13:46:29
Walter we have replace far better rb than tav, I’ll name one Sandy Jardine or two Gary Stevens.

34.) 04 Jun 2024 13:52:07
For me tavs decline in fitness started three seasons ago, against sport science advice he went trained in Dubai, remember the pictures dragging tractor tyres around.

The following season he went with his brother and Lowry. Yes, he looks great and ripped but has dropped off considerably on pace, something he was never overly blessed with. Once u lose pace very difficult to get it back imo.

35.) 04 Jun 2024 15:01:10
Sorry but this ain’t happening tav maybe but not Goldson

This is going to be same scenario as what I said previously with barasic and lundstrum

Everyone was expecting fees but I thought it was obvious they would walk for nothing and both did.

Guys in here like to big up the management/ directors of rangers in here but truth is they are asleep at the wheel just look at the team that had run to Europa final and how many of them walked away for nothing or reduced fee only really bassey was a success and that had more to do with gio than them.

36.) 04 Jun 2024 15:07:37
Ridvan is not staying the delights of Glasgow worn off the guy. A wee break at home would have made it even worse.

37.) 04 Jun 2024 15:23:42
Why would I have dessers pjs? I have said on here time and time again he should be back up for this season ? that’s another thing you have wrong coops. Oh I forgot about Cantwell it could be a mix of Cantwell and tavs pjs ?

Correct John replaced a lot better right backs than Tav ones that can actually defend.

38.) 04 Jun 2024 16:20:27
I agree with you John, Tav did start to decline when he bulked up over that summer.

The other thing for me that has caused him to decline is the amount of games he has played. Think that eventually catches up on you unless your a CH or DM.

I think Tav has been an excellent player for us and most of the criticism he gets is unwarranted. However I am now in the Tav out brigade for 2 reasons.

One is his drop in levels last couple of years, the other is I am actually fed up watching him put in poor performances.

Very similar to Goldson, thanks and best wishes but time to go.

39.) 04 Jun 2024 16:26:50
If you think we'd get 15-20m between the 2 of them, even with Gerrard at their helm, then you are deluded.

We'd be lucky to get 10 between them.

40.) 04 Jun 2024 16:57:23
Both well past their best now and maybe it’s just the the effects of a long season or carrying a knock but Tav runs like he’s towing a caravan last wee while!



01 Jun 2024 11:28:53
T4O saying we have concrete interest in Ben Johnson.

A twitter source, one of the best in football, Ex WHU employee, also confirming.


1.) 01 Jun 2024 12:33:04
T40 isn’t one of the best.

2.) 01 Jun 2024 12:36:34
Saw an article that we were trying to schedule a medical for him.

3.) 01 Jun 2024 14:13:46
We’ve been trying to convince him since January.

Palace and Fulham were also trying to get him, was close to signing for Palace according to The Athletic.

4.) 01 Jun 2024 14:03:39
No storm, but Ex WHU employee is one of the very best.

5.) 01 Jun 2024 14:29:08
If Fulham and Palace are after him then we can forget it.

6.) 01 Jun 2024 14:32:41
Johnson asked west ham for 50k a week that's why he's leaving they said no to his demands.
Can't see us paying near what he wants.

7.) 01 Jun 2024 14:56:28
Better value elsewhere I feel. these players we've got from England in recent years are overrated and want too much money.

8.) 01 Jun 2024 15:52:47
That’s your opinion.

9.) 01 Jun 2024 15:53:14
Mark, our 2 best performers came from England in Butland and Sterling both out of contract like Johnson. Would be excellent bit of business if we could get that over the line. IMO would be best full back in the country.

10.) 01 Jun 2024 17:19:57
Johnson is a top player, immediately improves our team,

11.) 01 Jun 2024 17:39:45
bellshillad, you make a good point reg Butland and Sterling.

12.) 01 Jun 2024 18:17:00
Johnson like sterling been played all over last season by the hammers.

13.) 01 Jun 2024 18:43:20
Sorry, but if other prem teams want him we are wasting our time.

14.) 01 Jun 2024 18:53:24
Any player 28 + coming from England etc and on a free that’s got a half decent pedigree is either injury prone wanting too much money and no sell on value or all three, getting the right young player from one of the EPL academies at the end of a deal is the gamble that can win on trophies and huge sales.

15.) 01 Jun 2024 19:38:04
Johnson will end up at Fulham. Adarabioyo just left them and signed for Chelsea on a free.

16.) 01 Jun 2024 20:36:32
Johnson would be a cracking signing for us, only 24 make cash on his sale.

17.) 01 Jun 2024 22:52:54
Johnson is one I picked out a couple years ago as possible rangers signing but I now think it won’t happen and feel we are seeing another Cooper where we continually waste time on someone who has already said no.

18.) 02 Jun 2024 09:22:01
Johnson is affordable. If Goldson leaves and his 38k wages become available and Johnson apparently wanted 50k then there’s a deal to be struck by time you add a win bonus, appearance fee and clean sheet bonus on top of 30 k basic he would sign IMO.

Sky Germany reporting we are interested in Yusuf Kabadayi of bayern.


1.) 05 Jun 2024 17:26:47
We've been linked with that many wingers already Tjs97, they can't all be true ?I'm delighted we've got oscar cortes tied up, hopefully get sima back, we've got matondo still and have been linked with adam traore and mofokeng and now kabadayi ?I would really like us to sign traore from ferencvarous ? His numbers are superb ?.

2.) 05 Jun 2024 18:00:41
Walter. Apparently manager wants four new wingers
Cortez plus 3. Manofkeng is one.

I don’t think we will get traore.

Not sure wher that leaves Mcausland and believe Matondo will go

I’d be happy with Cortez manofkeng sima mcausland.

3.) 05 Jun 2024 18:32:46
What makes you think that about Traore John? Guy feel or whisper?

4.) 05 Jun 2024 18:40:04
We haven't seen enough from Matondo for him to stay this summer. any decent fee and I'd sell.

5.) 05 Jun 2024 18:40:30
John, i know you're saying you don't think we'll get adam traore and i personally would love us to be able to get him, but do you have any info if we're definitely wanting traore mate ? I would hope we are ?.

6.) 05 Jun 2024 18:50:03
John you confident we can move matondo on perm? Most likely a loan with buy option if anything I reckon.

7.) 05 Jun 2024 19:09:28
Is it definitely the Ferencvaros Traore SWS, there's another at Hull City same name 28 o.o.c, I know it's not the Wolves one, he's to dear.

8.) 05 Jun 2024 19:21:27
I like Matondo very direct as fast a player as we’ve had in a long time and his finishing is coming along nicely give n the chance if playing the amount Kent did at Gers he’d destroy his numbers.

9.) 05 Jun 2024 19:27:36
It seems we've very little money. Outbid by Norwich as we didn't want to pay all money up front. It seems increasingly that our purchases are dependent on Jack Buckland being sold.

10.) 05 Jun 2024 20:08:10
Dado, whisper, not in equaling unless we miss out in our main targets.

11.) 05 Jun 2024 20:11:28
Lanzarote we have plenty money, just not throwing it around like confetti, it’s about being clever how we spend it

Coully there is interest from championship and Belgium re Matondo, that how I’m glad to see him in international squad agin, that creates interest.

12.) 05 Jun 2024 20:38:56
Not true.



08 Dec 2023 18:34:34
Clement confirming he'll be trying to bring in a striker in January.

John Park also leaving.

Good news on both fronts.


1.) 08 Dec 2023 19:31:35
Best news I have heard in a long time! Park won't be missed!



05 Oct 2023 19:10:53
You all hounded me months ago when I said we are in a worse state that pre gerrard.

Looks like I was right. Charlatans from top to bottom.

One of the worst run clubs in football and it isn't going to get better.


1.) 05 Oct 2023 19:26:58
We weren’t in a worse situation than pre-Gerarrd a few months ago. We are now though, and it’s because we have made the same mistake as we did before. We sacked a manger, with nobody to replace him. Now we are in free fall and the embarrassments start. The board have a lot to answer for.

2.) 05 Oct 2023 19:30:21
No I never.

3.) 05 Oct 2023 19:49:07
The board done what the fans asked for and we lost 3 of our first 7 games under Beale so we were already in free fall. You play mental gymnastics verdant.

4.) 05 Oct 2023 20:03:15
That's not the same mistake. We sacked a manager the last time when 2 weeks before it, the one that ended up taking his job was in the stands. So we definitely had one lined up.

Verdant we are in this state due to Beale and his recruitment and shear lack of managerial experience the guy was a fraud and should never have been anywhere near our club that’s why we are in free fall due to his actions not because the boards eventually had no option but to get rid.

Between garcia and rrahmani.

Nsiala will be a project, I'd not be surprised if he was loaned out in January.

Don't think kabadayi will be a starter either.

Blue, it'll be more than that. Lundstram was earning 38k a week. Folk couldn't believe it when it came out.

It's why you can't believe these online websites. They listed him at about 22.

The 4m won't be from next year's budget, it will be paid in instalments.

The full 4m will show on the books though as that's standard accounting practice. Will be amortised over the length of the contract.

We still need at least 1, ideally 2 more CMs. Even with Raskin and dio.
