Just read a story on news now that we have people in Egypt making contactvwith a 23 year old striker who "lit up" the under 23 african nations cup. 2 full caps for egypt. Ex international turned journalist call farouk or something was the source quoted in the article.




02 Nov 2019 21:31:51
So after seeing the latest accounts what do we think January plan will be? More additions or simply move players on and only replace a key player if sold eg morelos, tab or kamara?
Looking forward to seeing the cross border youngsters we get in with Wilson's new targets.


1.) 02 Nov 2019 22:38:24
After yesterday’s results a couple of our good guys may be moving on😤🇬🇧.

2.) 03 Nov 2019 08:47:33
Nothing much will happen in January, unless a couple of lesser lights are sold or leave (Grezda, Halliday, Polster, Murphy, would lighten the payload by £70k a week or £1.5m by May) or a ridiculous offer is made for a first team regular. We are quite able to sustain this until the end of the season.

3.) 03 Nov 2019 08:50:33
Yately if they move on it will have nothing to do with financial results, it will be because of the offer received.

4.) 03 Nov 2019 11:54:30
Daisy yore we are in absolutely no position if self sustaining. We need 10 million to see us through the season. I think you need to take a closer look at the accounts.

5.) 03 Nov 2019 12:24:31
I think we need to trim first team squad by at least 5. Would let wes go for nominal fee if American interest is moved on. Would put the likes of docherty and Murphy out on loan. I personally would also try to loan grezda out as a decent 6 months loan would allow us to get part possibly all our fee back. Any out of contract fringe player we get decent offers for should be allowed to go for nominal fees. We really need to stop paying players off especially when they have another club lined up. Sell for nominal fee and put a sell on clause in it.

6.) 03 Nov 2019 16:21:33

With players to leave (hopefully) we need very few more additions, but given the significant rise in annual turnover, as shown in annual accounts, there has to be scope for 10m saving at least. This is very attainable. Christ it's less than 15% annual turnover.

7.) 04 Nov 2019 16:28:52
TJRFC I have studied the accounts, income sources, potential income sources, expenditure and came to my conclusion. What I did not do was pluck a fictitious figure out of a paper and post it here.

8.) 04 Nov 2019 17:11:13
we have no need to sell. Club is fine for now. Alf will only be sold if silly money comes in, which is unlikely in Jan. Fringe players may leave if offers come in etc.



12 Oct 2019 08:19:31
Heard this morning from a customer from newcastle tht we are looking at matty longstaff. The youngster that scored winner against man utd. Never seen him play but guy was raving about him going to be top player. Not sure how or if guy was really connected at newcastle but he seemed to know a lot. Thinks its peter lovenkrands that has steered us to have a look. Anyone else heard any rumours?


1.) 12 Oct 2019 09:26:27
Sorry mate watched the game and every time he was mentioned it was all about him and his brother both being die hard fans of Newcastle.
And it was there dream to play for them so think it would pretty difficult for us to get him.
But this is a rumours site so anything goes.

2.) 12 Oct 2019 13:28:35
Only heard of his brother as sure he is being linked with 50mil move to man utd. More hopeful of the 2 from bolton but again not seen anything of them but highly thought of down south.

3.) 12 Oct 2019 15:03:03
Valued at 12 million. Played one game lol.

4.) 12 Oct 2019 16:27:54
No chance.

5.) 13 Oct 2019 11:09:26
he is going down a golden path me thinks. he may fall in a puddle but it will be a puddle of gold. lol
not coming here me thinks.

6.) 13 Oct 2019 11:49:41
His contract runs out at end of the season as it was his first professional contract. We would get him for peanuts if successful with cross border compensation. Would fit our recruitment if what the guy said is correct. Young hungry player with great potential.

7.) 14 Oct 2019 22:55:32
Not happening. Diehard toon fan.



08 Jun 2019 19:06:53
Heard today at work we are looking at the boy willock from man utd as he is leaving them. Anyone heard anything regarding this? Anyone know anything of the lad?


1.) 08 Jun 2019 23:49:54
Was at St. Johnstone on loan is pish.

2.) 08 Jun 2019 23:52:09
He's been on loan in Scotland twice. I think the last time with St Johnstone and from what I've seen definitely not any better than what we already have. Another CM!

3.) 09 Jun 2019 02:06:35
I was hoping it was going to be his brother from arsenal. From what I've seen he can play a bit. Would like us to have a wee look at Charlie gilmour. Just released and a friend who is a massive gunner raves about the boy. can't believe arsenal let him go. From what I have read his family are rangers daft.

4.) 09 Jun 2019 09:17:49
Seem to be linked constantly with midfielders. Unless its a no10 type goalscorimg midfielder I dont see the point in bringing any more in, Kamara, Arfield, Davis, Jack, Docherty, Rossiter, McCrorie, Holt, Dorrans, Halliday. I know some of these will be moved on and are not good enough but surely we dont need any more until he ships the dross out the door! Dont get me wrong, if the player we are linked with is an improvement on whats there already than it isnt a bad move but none of the players we are linked with are better than whats there already IMO.

5.) 09 Jun 2019 15:51:41
I read earlier that Kamara has been linked with Brighton and he has said its his dream to play in the premiership. Hopefully we get rid of the players that are not up to scratch rather than the ones with potential!

6.) 09 Jun 2019 22:00:06
Willock and Gilmour this is getting beyond a joke the players we ate being linked to is embarrassing it's looking like we don't seem to have money to spend because it's bargain basement freebies and just mediocre players we are being linked to.

7.) 09 Jun 2019 23:27:59
There's a difference to being linked with someone and them actually signing though don't you think?

8.) 09 Jun 2019 23:51:15
S tiv gilmour came through the same academy as the highly regarded (by our fans) Glenn kamara. You don't make it to first team debut for arsenal without having something. I think players from arsenal and man utd would be of decent calibre plus we have 2 world class centre mids to bring them on in SG and GM. Just need to look at how much Ryan Jack has came on. Plus Steve Davis to help on the pitch.

9.) 10 Jun 2019 08:22:22
There's a reason why he's been released because between good enough and just because he's a rangers fan some fans think oh let's sign him as for willock was on loan at St Mitten and St Johnstone and didn't do much we need to be linked to far better calibre of players Mark Allen I would love to know what he is looking at with these players when everybody keeps saying oh we got Glen Kamara but seem to forget we also signed donkeys like Grezda and Ejaria.

10.) 10 Jun 2019 16:31:16
Jack wilshere also wasnt good enough for arsenal even injured he would be best player up here. Grezda and ejaria haven't worked with us but i know a few albanians and the boy grezda is in their opinion not mine sensational for the national team in the past few years. he wouldn't be the first foreign player that didn't settle straight away in scotland. Think grezda is done with us but not necessarily a bad player.



30 May 2019 18:16:53
With aston villa looking to buy tav realistically what would the can't say no price be and is there any rumours of us targeting full backs for both sides?


1.) 30 May 2019 18:37:14
8 million at least.

2.) 30 May 2019 18:47:21
10 Million.

3.) 30 May 2019 18:58:56
One of our most important players and at 27 reaching his peak in the next 2-3 years so nothing less than £10m.

4.) 30 May 2019 19:00:45
whatever going rate is for a fullback in EPL

10m i’d say considering he’s our captain and tied to a long term contract

and villa just made 120m+ getting promo’d into EPL so price tag has to be relative.

5.) 30 May 2019 19:13:20
5M with add ons and we will sell, need to be realistic guys, the Scottish league is regarded down south as being below the championship. I’d luv us to keep Tav as his assists etc are hard to find but I think he will be away in the summer.

6.) 30 May 2019 19:43:15
Important to note Tav is rarely injured, not many we can say that about. No less than £10m, no pressure to sell so why do it. We are looking to improve the starting 11 not weaken it first. I’d be keeping him.

7.) 30 May 2019 20:06:22
A like tav but he's not the best defender OK he's got few assists but many goals has he cost us with poor defending.

8.) 30 May 2019 20:19:50
if its regarded as below the championship then they won't want our players will they.

9.) 30 May 2019 20:46:46
I’d say nothing less than 12m. He’s the club captain and we ain’t in a position where we have to sell. Will cost a lot to replace those goals and assists. Dosnt matter if Scottish league ain’t. EST in the world. Hutton went for 9m and how many years ago was that. Time we started demanding top dolla if we do sell.

10.) 30 May 2019 20:51:12
Disagree east belfast a think his defendings came on leaps n bounds and his assists are irreplaceable game v killie at the end was a sign of how much we would miss him.

11.) 30 May 2019 21:19:01
Whether we like it or not, playing in the SPL will mean that we won’t get the true value for any player.

12.) 30 May 2019 21:24:13
If Teirneys worth 25-30 apparently and injury prone, then so is Tav who’s injury free.

13.) 30 May 2019 21:47:56
Oaft, 10 million for Tav. Be realistic guys. Villa paid 2.5 million for McGinn. No way will they pay 10 for Tav.

14.) 30 May 2019 22:00:49
15 million minimum. That’s a punt for teams down south.

15.) 31 May 2019 01:37:34
If Tavernier goes, which I hope he doesn't, the price should be not less than £8million, but I cannot see Gerrard sanctioning any such transfer. However, given the unjustified criticism and vilification our captain receives from certain quarters, it would not surprise me to see him wanting to move to the EPL.

16.) 31 May 2019 06:11:52
9M or no deal Aston villa are rich now tavernier could do a job for them that's how I got the 9M figure his assists and attacking attributes are worth that kind of money it's realistic to believe that sum.

17.) 31 May 2019 08:07:09
He is arguably priceless to us. We will be lucky to get another RB with as many goals and assists like this again!

For me you state 15m and accept nothing less than 12m.

No more p! ss taking when we sell our players. Seriously Waghorn 8m!

However we should be saying NOT FOR SALE

This needs to be our year, Lennon sacked by Christmas.

18.) 31 May 2019 09:28:43
Every player has their price. If Villa are apparently willing to pay £10-12m for Kent, I'd be wanting something similar for Tav.

19.) 31 May 2019 09:44:32
10 for tav 10 for morelos

Buy kent still got few quid to spend.

20.) 31 May 2019 09:44:47
if they are buying him to be a first team player in the English premier league then 15 million. The money is ridiculous down there and we shouldn't let him go on the cheap. John mginn went for 2.5million and they would want at least 20 million for him now after one season.

21.) 31 May 2019 10:03:17
@novorfc the mcginn situation was completely diff. He was running out of contract, he wasn’t club captain, he wasn’t playing in Europe and most importantly he was at HIBS! 2.5m is a lot of £ to them but isn’t as significant to a team like us. Villa played that very well saw a bargain and went for it this is nothing like that.

22.) 31 May 2019 10:04:21
Rangers should play hardball with any offers. the EPL buy lesser players of clubs from more obscure leagues than ours for £15million + all the time.

23.) 31 May 2019 11:37:32
If villa or any other club want james tavernier for that matter, then he shouldn't be sold for a penny less than £10million, as far as i'm concerned!

24.) 31 May 2019 12:52:46
I would say £8-10million has to be minimum price set. We have polster, Flanagan and Ryan jack who has played right back for Scotland before, but taking away those 3 and failing to find instant replacement I see Alan Hutton has left villa today could do a turn for a season or 2.

25.) 31 May 2019 14:29:11
Sputnik, none of the four you mentioned is anywhere near Tavernier. We're supposed to be building a title-winning team, you don't do that by replacing your best players with average ones.

26.) 31 May 2019 15:51:02
7mil mark and I think he'd be away. I think hutton would be an option. I'd be quite happy to go with flanagan at left back, if he keeps going the way he is going then it would be hard to not play him. 👍.

27.) 31 May 2019 16:01:31
Nice to see so many AT LAST valuing Tav. East Belfast bro 20 assists is not a few and almost double anyone else. Strangely I agree that Tav. would not be as effective down South. I really hope he stays but at 27 with the sort of wage packet he'd get might be hard for him to refuse. I know its only paper talk but Colombian press are saying Newcastle want Morelos for £20m impossible for us to refuse.

28.) 31 May 2019 17:03:33
Tsb has the energy to play in premier league his value to villa
Would probably include staying in premier league but I would like to think the bidding to start at 8
Mill with the add on.

29.) 31 May 2019 18:47:23
Tav will not go for less than 10 million chaps. 2 reasons: 1. He's a stat machine which is the main basis of how a player is valued now. Someone mentioned lack of injuries; good point. This year he finished with 17 goals and 20 assists or the other way round. FROM A DEFENDER. he is epitomy of a modern right back. Scores, assists and has the temperament to be a captain.
2. GerrArd said at the beginning of the season the spl will not dictate a player's value. If their good enough then they will cost what they're worth. If he goes back on that he'll look a fool so I doubt that will happen. 10 mill minimum guys. If he's half the player Tierney is (which he is much better than that) then the asking price is 15.

30.) 31 May 2019 22:43:04
Your correct Easytiger, stats has a big input to a player's transfer fee. A few weeks back i read stats between james tavernier and kieran tierney and tav came out tops in everything bar defensive tackles won. If tierney is worth £20-£25million, then tav has to be worth a good bit north of £10million. Tav i truly believe is fitter than tierney and arguably the fittest footballer in Scotland. Always have rated tav and think he's a very good player.

31.) 01 Jun 2019 09:22:39
Also has a great engine. Sick to death of defending Tav on here when the vultures are circling. Great to see so many of us backing him for a change.

Just saw young Jordann rossiter might be out for the season with a serious knee injury. Such a pity for a lad with huge talent. He was on a good run without injuries.


1.) 29 Nov 2019 20:16:29
Never good enough for us. Quite sad to be honest👍.

2.) 30 Nov 2019 09:36:16
I’m not so sure Coldo.

When he had a short period of full fitness he reminded me of a Young Barry Fergusson.

Good awareness, possibly better technique but a drive and determination to control the game.

Shame he has never had an opportunity to prove himself due to injuries.

3.) 30 Nov 2019 10:30:33
Dk he wouldn't get in our team or near our bench therefore for me he's not good enough, that's why he's out on loan, surplus to requirements. Not sure about the ferguson comparison either. 👍.

4.) 30 Nov 2019 10:33:38
He is definitely good enough. No doubt in that, just a real shame injury has prevented him having the career he was due.

5.) 30 Nov 2019 11:24:12
If he was good enough for the first team then why is he out on loan? 👍.

6.) 30 Nov 2019 12:35:45
The boy went out on loan to get games, played 26 in a row at fleetwood, unfortunately he had his time with us, 10 k a week. 1.5 million in wages he done well out of us.



01 Nov 2019 17:31:40
This isn't a rumour as such but looking for opinions. Do we sell grezda? I know he disgraced the jersey by spitting on an opponent but i know some people who follow the colts and they say they can see why SG was interested in him and brought him to our club. Last season he was a disaster of a signing and deservedly was demoted to the colts but and i know i may get slaughtered for saying this but i haven't read any stories anout him speaking out against his treatment. None of the i'm too good for this level and from what the guys told me seems to be coming onto a game just now. Maybe its he is getting used to scottish football or partly the expectation isn't there in the same way.
Does he have a way back or is he finished and sold in January? I agree he was dreadful last season but he did sign for us injured with no pre season. And barisic has came out the other side in past month or so.


1.) 01 Nov 2019 17:40:30
Bellshill i'd sell however there is a player in there.

2.) 01 Nov 2019 20:41:59
Interesting points bellshill, personally didn’t see him as a disaster last year. I didn’t think he got much of a chance tbh.

I would like to see him sent out on loan for at least 6M to another spl club so we can see what he can offer. To me he looked more than decent technically but seriously lacked pace. Not sure where he could play in our current system as I don’t think he has the pace to play on the wing and doesn’t have the work rate to play in the middle. But who knows maybe he could go out and surprise a few folk.

3.) 01 Nov 2019 21:06:51
I don’t like to judge people but spitting has to be as low as it gets, I’d prefer not to see him again.

4.) 01 Nov 2019 19:56:21
No way back, he's out ASAP.

5.) 01 Nov 2019 21:55:27
Sir Rock, big Petric and Iain Ferguson we’re guilty of spitting to😮😮🇬🇧.

6.) 02 Nov 2019 07:41:42
Haven't saw anything from grezda that would make me think he has what it takes to make it with us, an expensive mistake. Sell and move on👍.

7.) 02 Nov 2019 08:42:04
Yately - I don’t specifically remember that, although that could be down to my age 😜. Same would go mate for any regardless of club status, I think it’s a sign of a coward, I’d rather the guy tried to punch me than spit.

8.) 02 Nov 2019 09:26:20
Hes took the punishment like a man, no complaining and getting the head down and working hard. If we get a couple of injuries he might get a chance its then up to him to perform better than last season.

9.) 02 Nov 2019 09:35:19
What a lot of nonsense! Both Messi and Ronaldo have spat at opponents. Something tells me if we were lucky to have either of those players there wouldn’t be a single fan saying get rid.

When footballers are performing well then they are exempt from criticism but when there not then they are guilty without anyone in this forum even seeing the incident. I find that laughable.

Even SG had the compassion to forgive Luis Suarez for biting an opponent, because he was there top player and their only chance to win a title. Now that Grezda has done something similar he won’t play for Rangers again. Or maybe (and more likely) he is using this incident to get him out the club without having to admit he wasted £2M on a player that wasn’t good enough.

I wonder if Morelos scored a hat-trick against Celtic and on the way of the pitch spat on a Celtic player, how many would want him out the club?

10.) 02 Nov 2019 10:28:05
Want him at the club? I'd want him knighted lol.

11.) 02 Nov 2019 12:14:42
6m? Must be a typo that. And wasn't his pace one of the key selling points? I don't know but I can't see any way back it hasn't worked so likely best to get him off the books first chance we get.

12.) 02 Nov 2019 12:19:33
Need to get him to a position where if we sell we can at least cover our losses. our recent financials highlight the fact that we write off too much in player transfer fees.

13.) 02 Nov 2019 12:50:28
6M as in a 6 month loan.

14.) 02 Nov 2019 12:51:40
Exactly my pint c of Ibrox, so would I btw.

15.) 02 Nov 2019 12:53:10
Need to get the boy out on loan in January, even if we have to cover the cost. See what the guy can do with a run of games and if not the required standard then at least get him in the shop window.



16 Jun 2019 21:03:04
Charlie gilmour has just made golden boy shortlist. Why are we not looking to sign this boy.


1.) 17 Jun 2019 10:41:59
Agreed mate, non risk and the lad will put the effort in. Most Arsenal fans I've spoken to are gutted they aren't keeping him.

2.) 17 Jun 2019 11:02:42
Even if we took him and then let him go out on loan if we can't accomodate him in our first team plans this season. It would be a future investment and like you guy's mentioned its pretty much a win win for rangers and young Charlie.

3.) 17 Jun 2019 15:55:21
Just seen that Charlie gilmore is off to norwich fc.
Good luck to the young lad.

4.) 17 Jun 2019 16:28:09
For the Golden Boy you are thinking of Billy Gilmour who is at Chelsea.

Charlie Gilmour is the Rangers fan just released by Arsenal.

5.) 17 Jun 2019 22:11:53
Wrong johnstone. It is Charlie.



11 May 2019 20:32:56
I saw a story saying we should look at the young left back from killie. I know nothing about him but have a mate that's a killie fan and he reckons the boy will emulate Robertson. Sounds good buy. Also heard that West ham are looking to offload Reece oxford. My brothers saw him a few times and says he could be a top player for a team like us.


1.) 11 May 2019 22:40:40
Reece Oxford would be worth a punt probably out of league, transfer fee wise though.

2.) 12 May 2019 00:02:11
Reece Oxford is available on a bowman, last news was he was off to Germany. Would love to see him at us.

3.) 12 May 2019 05:01:49
Is that a Ryan bowman or Dave? Remember him?

4.) 12 May 2019 10:55:17
Both Bowmans remind me of those sketches of the missing link, especially the thug that played with the Motherwell hammer throwers.



08 May 2019 12:26:08
So McLeod is leaving Brentford at the end of the season. Realistically could he be a target? Do we need him? Personally his injury record since leaving has me hoping we don't move for him.


1.) 08 May 2019 12:48:22
He isn't any better than what we have already so I doubt it👍.

2.) 08 May 2019 13:50:46
Not at our level any more. Injury prone and not match sharp. If we were still in the Championship maybe.

Dd1 last old firm SG changed shape and tactics which never worked when we played our usual system on sunday they had no answer. Past 3 years old firms they ran over the top of us. We were nowhere near them which hurts to admit but true. I don't think i'm being unrealistic in saying we could take the league this year. They are there for us to beat this season.

On another day Alfie has match ball and trophy in the bath with him and his duck tonight. Their goalie was simply outstanding. Result was disappointing but for me we battered them all over the pitch with our main man in midfield out injured. Ok they didn't have edouard but today don't think he would have changed anything. Tells me if we play our formation not the one from ibrox Celtic are there for the taking.

Have been told his head has been turned by interest from down south. Thinks cause Gilmour has progressed and getting big praise he will do the same. doesn't realise that for every Gilmour there are 3 or 4 Wilson stories when he went to Liverpool.

In my opinion if King is stepping down its to benefit the long term future of our club. I would like to think there will be a plan already in place and probably has something to do with the possible new investment rumoured to be coming in the new year. I don't think anything will change with him. If rangers need him he will be there. Once a blue always a blue.

The main cause in my opinion is poor recruitment something like 30 million spent in past few years with most getting their contracts terminated by mutual consent. That has to stop. Paying millions in fees then same in paying them off. Secondly it will be the excessive legal fees caused by the sports direct twat taking us to court every time his dinner is cold.

I think with wilson in our recruitment will improve buying low improving and selling for profit with sell on clauses in the likes of morelos, kamara, aribo etc. Pretty much copy what Celtic have done with there players for years now.

Youngster that's came through the ranks. Very good prospect according to my mate who is an ex player.

I think it was just needing time to gel. Keep the majority of that team and the league will be ours. Think new first choice keeper, left back and if morales is sold a good quality striker. Go out and spend a bit on each position get some quality and team will be outstanding.

Ryan jack has turned into a great player. Really impressed by just how much he has improved. can't believe he doesn't command a scotland starting 11 spot. Kamara is deal of the season easy and davis is the wee bit of class that was missing.
