Saw an article on news now linking us to the CM tapia from feyenoord. Played 90 minutes against us at ibrox. Has 47 caps for Peru. 25 year old and can play CB too. Contract up end of the season but Dutch looking to make bit of cash as not wanting to lose on bosma .


1.) 10 Jan 2020 11:34:27
IMO this would be a step up if we got this player in,

2.) 10 Jan 2020 11:56:31
If you don't mind me asking John25,
who's place in midfield would you like tapia to take mate? 🤔.

3.) 10 Jan 2020 12:32:58
SGL this may come as a shock to you but a team needs a squad. It covers for injury, suspension, loss of form or a player being rested.
Honest mate it’s not that hard to think we need more than three midfield players.
Oh and Davis won’t play for years to come.

4.) 10 Jan 2020 13:31:51
SGL - is this what we're going to say now to insult every new player? 'Who does he replace'?

As John says, we need to improve the squad always, the moment we stand still, we're what Celtic are becoming.

Before it was 'he's not good enough' now it's 'whose place does he take'.

5.) 10 Jan 2020 14:04:29
If tapia is better than what we have then he could replace any one of our midfielders. Can he play RF🤔👍.

6.) 10 Jan 2020 14:24:26
I totally agree with you John25,a club does need a squad but at this moment in time imo, we don't need anymore midfielders, unless someone is sold, as we're well covered in that area for me. A right winger and striker we do need. that's why ross wilson and steven gerrard are trimming the squad just now mate. We have too many players, that are deemed surplus to requirements!

7.) 10 Jan 2020 15:12:09
SGL this guy is available on a bosman so if we want him make a move. Ps we are short in midfield, king has gone, we say so can Docherty, Halliday Polster, Aribo is now seen as a more forward player.
It actually only leaves Davis, Arfield. Jack Kamara, a bit light
And folks don’t trot out list of average wingers who can play wide.

8.) 10 Jan 2020 15:25:44
The Coldo RF thumbs up klaxon ringing again. RF isn’t even a position we play. We have a striker and two inverted wingers.

9.) 10 Jan 2020 15:26:22
We might have too many players but we've got less than Celtic. It's not that we have too many, really, it's that the wider squad isn't quite good enough - Jon Flanagan and Andy Halliday just don't compare to Tav and Borna.

10.) 10 Jan 2020 15:29:59
We do need a RF coop. I'm not so sure we need a ST though mate but if the right one is available maybe a loan? 👍.

11.) 10 Jan 2020 16:17:26
Think we're more skinny up front than RF coldo. Aribo😉, Stewart, Jones, arfield even Ojo😁.

12.) 10 Jan 2020 16:55:42
Looked into him a bit and looks a decent option. If he comes on a bosma I say good. I know our midfield is set just now but I think we need better back up. If we get an I jury the player coming in isn't far off the injured one we don't have that just now. We have our core players but if a couple out of davis, kamara, jack, arfield and aribo get injured or suspended at same time we need a first team quality player to come in and take their place. I think we will let a lot of the out of contract players leave. 3 Gk, full back cover, midfield cover. Also ojo will return, players who haven't shown enough will leave and 1st team players will attract attention. We will bring in a few squad players and also need to replace any that are sold.

13.) 10 Jan 2020 17:12:30
Theswagman, isn't an inverted winger a cross between a winger and a forward? Pretty much a what a RF is🤔. Its the match ball for you👍.

14.) 10 Jan 2020 17:20:22
Mrgrumpy, jones is the only natural one in that position. The ojo aribo stewart barker not good enough in that position. Arfield is a stop gap in that position. Arfield is a central player👍.

15.) 10 Jan 2020 18:50:49
There are many books on football tactics that you can read which explain the differences between the positions. Right forward and inverted winger are absolutely not the same, and if you can’t understand that it probably explains why you don’t seem to understand what’s going on half the time. 👍.

16.) 10 Jan 2020 20:05:44
You already got the match ball swagman you don't need to keep making a fool of yourself👍.

17.) 10 Jan 2020 22:02:59
Those players you mentioned coldo were good enough for SG in that position. And judging by where we are at the moment in the league and Europe I agree with him.

18.) 11 Jan 2020 09:02:26
Ojo barker stewart are not good enough. Aribo is a stop gap and doesn't have the attributes that are required to play that position permanently, pace directness. Arfield same as aribo, central player. Jones has the attributes and ability, time will tell. Conclusion we badly need a natural RF👍.

19.) 11 Jan 2020 10:38:30
Again coldo that's just your opinion. On another point, you said you didn't think we needed another striker? Morelos, Defoe, ?

20.) 11 Jan 2020 10:53:16
Plus gio van b highly rates him. That's good enough for me.

21.) 11 Jan 2020 10:54:26
What’s difference between inverted winger and converted winger?

22.) 11 Jan 2020 10:57:30
SGL, anyone he proves to be better than. That's how we improve.

23.) 11 Jan 2020 11:14:33
Its not just my opinion, stewart ojo barker don't play for a reason and that's because they aren't first team material👍 that's why gerrard has had to play arfield and aribo in that position which is why they are stop gaps👍. Jones we don't know how he will perform in that position hence why we badly need a RF👍. Do we have to have 3 strikers? Just because have 2 doesn't mean we need another? If we were to sign a 3rd the level of quality of that player would be on a par with stewart so what would be the point, let's face it which player of any real quality is going to come to be 3rd choice? I would imagine none that are really any better than what we already have on the fringes. If we want to go up a gear then a natural RF with quality is what we need👍.

24.) 11 Jan 2020 12:49:52
Football is a squad game. Aribo, arfield, Ojo, Stewart have played this season. With aribo, arfield and yes even your favourite Ojo contributing. We are thin up front, Morelos is banned, Defoe gets injured, leaves us with Stewart. I quite like Stewart and think he hasn't had a real chance yet. I've no idea if he can play up front as a main striker.

25.) 11 Jan 2020 13:37:22
Stewart ojo barker are not good enough that's why they can't get a game. They will against stranraer, which is my point. yip they have played this season that's why they don't get much game time now👍 if's and buts with your ST theory, again if we sign a 3rd choice ST then they will be no better than stewart. No player of any real quality will want to be 3rd ST so again what would be the point. aribo and arfield are stop gaps hence why they are played out of position. You can go on about its a squad game all you want but our starting 11 picks itself and with the exception of defoe arfield when you look at our bench we don't have any real game changers. Hence why ohno stewart or barker never got near celtic. Tells its own story. 👍.

26.) 11 Jan 2020 18:56:34
Until morello plays for someone else why slag him he's the best we or anyone else has got enjoy him just now then watch him elsewhere and see where we are with the money he generated for us.



06 Jan 2020 18:43:17
Jusy read a comment on a Facebook fan page can't remember which on but guy saying spurs are waiting to see severity of kane injury before possibly making bid for morelos. I don't really follow English football these days busy with my wee girl but surely spurs would be looking in different market. I mean morelos is good but spurs made European final and is Jose Mourinho not just became the manager there.


1.) 06 Jan 2020 19:00:32
Facebook oh it must be true then 🎣.

2.) 06 Jan 2020 19:06:09
You underestimate how good El-Buffalo is. Spurs, for a start, are garbage right now. Morelos is good enough to play for a top 6 PL side. And they're not a top 6 side.

3.) 06 Jan 2020 21:03:25
Except they are sitting sixth 🙄.

4.) 06 Jan 2020 21:43:50
Ed there’s rumours that we’re maybe going for ex Celtic midfielder Stuart Armstrong don’t know if it’s a loan or permanent but Ross Wilson our new director supposedly has something to do with this so I thought I would share this.

5.) 06 Jan 2020 21:49:22
Morelos is too good for spurs, last season's champions league finalists🤔. 👍.

6.) 06 Jan 2020 23:34:26
Barrymiddleton, i seen that rumour on another site, but most replies said it was bull. Mate.

7.) 07 Jan 2020 08:27:55
Personally i've always liked him, was gutted when he moved to the derps, but i can't see this happening, I follow southampton often, living close to that area, he has been one of their best players since their upturn in form recently. Although he does come of the bench more often than not, i can't see them getting rid of him unless they bring in another midfielder.



03 Jan 2020 13:15:07
Saw an article this morning on news now that its not kamara that arsenal are scouting. They quoted the source as an in the know twitter account [something similar to the 4 lads account i assume as don't do twitter]thats usually reliable and they think its aribo that's been scouted over last 6 matches.
Must admit been a while since as many of our players are in demand. Just now by my reckoning we have morelos, kamara, jones, barisic, tav and aribo from 1st team and the youngster leon king? From development all being tracked. In todays market surely they would command a combined 60+ million. I know we won't sell during January window but could mean big plans and change for next season possibly.


1.) 03 Jan 2020 14:45:28
Makes no sense to sell Kamara in Jan with the Euro’s coming up and Kamara will be playing for Finland. Few good performances could see his value increase further.

2.) 03 Jan 2020 18:02:10
Bellshilllad what u selling king for.

3.) 03 Jan 2020 20:22:07
John25 don't think he will sign a contract. The info I heard was the lads head has been turned by interest from down south. As he is only 15 probably the same as when gilmour went to Chelsea. Hopefully we can keep hold of him as a friend who is a youth coach says he will go as far as he wants in the game. Best youth defender in the country.

4.) 03 Jan 2020 21:12:46
Agree stuart would be mad to sell kamara now. A good euros and his value would skyrocket. Could be a bidding war.

5.) 04 Jan 2020 11:39:13
Sorry bells hill I meant how much money u think we will get .
He is a very good player.

6.) 04 Jan 2020 11:44:14
Stuart herewego55 if he has a good euro his value will skyrocket i agree there but and it is ine i doubt but what if he has a shocker at the euros. His value would nose dive. Personally i like him and would rather keep him but if 8mil+ offer comes in stick on a sell on clause i would sell if and only if he was loaned to us for remainder of the season.

7.) 04 Jan 2020 11:57:54
It will be similar to billy gilmour fee probably john. Paltry 1/ 2 million or so. Hopefully the kid realises he's in the right place to develop.

8.) 04 Jan 2020 12:43:40
Herewego. Remember it works both ways. We have brought in several boys for nothing,
Hosler Man City
Nathan Coombes, Chelsea
Balde from Portugal
Lad from USA, lad from Cheka republic
Three or four from norther Ireland.

9.) 04 Jan 2020 13:01:26
Players worldwide are scouted all the time. Means nothing. Just clubs doing their homework, like we do.

10.) 04 Jan 2020 13:46:10
what is anyone selling anybody for?

11.) 04 Jan 2020 13:48:06
King will sign there a big difference between him n gilmour. he's rangers through n through.



28 Dec 2019 18:43:49
Just been chatting to a guy I went to school with who captained rangers through youth age groups and he was told by a current coach that Wilson is readying a bid for the young full back hickey at hearts. Nothing near the 2million reported in paper and SG want lewis Ferguson in the january window. Left back will be left at hearts till end of season. Hoping to get both for 2.5 to 3 million. Like Ferguson has been decent few times I saw him last season and hickey has something but need brought on a bit before he will be ready for us.


1.) 28 Dec 2019 19:42:42
Wouldn’t sign any of the two! Don’t improve us for that sort of money.

2.) 28 Dec 2019 19:44:38
I read it was Wilson who wants Ferguson, doubt the sheep will sell to us unless we may offer a swap deal, maybe Docherty. I personally don't think Ferguson is good enough at the moment for Rangers. I wouldn't like him to sign for us only to be a nearly Rangers player, which does happen.

3.) 28 Dec 2019 21:04:25
Have watched young Hickey of Hearts a few times and not impressed at all🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧.

4.) 28 Dec 2019 21:05:11
They would never sell Ferguson to us🇬🇧.

5.) 28 Dec 2019 22:08:50
You started hogmany early.

6.) 28 Dec 2019 22:38:41
I hope not he's had about 2 good games this season. Other than that. Especially against us he's been awful.

7.) 28 Dec 2019 23:14:21
Hickey is away to City in January supposedly. Loaned back to Hearts until end of the season.

8.) 28 Dec 2019 23:18:34
Bellshilllad, an ex youth captain filling you in who coming in.
And below a customer on holiday from down south, filling you in who’s leaving.
To much sherry in your Christmas trifle me thinks.

9.) 29 Dec 2019 01:36:00
Hickey won't get on our team so why would the boy leave hearts to sit on a bench? Plus ferguson ain't as good as jack, aribo, davis, kamara, arfield, plus big edmundson can play in the cdm role aswell. We don't need him.

10.) 29 Dec 2019 15:45:03
Never been impressed by Hickey - big reputation but not performed well when I've seen him. Do like Ferguson though - much better player than his critics seem to give him credit for.

11.) 29 Dec 2019 15:46:41
Both aren't good enough or anywhere near it👍.

12.) 29 Dec 2019 18:06:45
Blue brother guy down south only said there was interest in ryan jack. Even a celtic fan could tell you that. The guy has been stand out this season. I know a few ex players through school, playing and where I used to work.

13.) 29 Dec 2019 18:09:26
I read the same negativity about ryan jack and kamara when they signed. Think the boy Ferguson could be brought on to a decent standard and he has an eye for goal.

14.) 30 Dec 2019 12:27:09
Ferguson is a talented lad. He arguably looks a better player than either Jack and kamara were before they joined us.

15.) 30 Dec 2019 14:59:55
No of our top team squad will be sold dunno why were discussing prices, values and all that. There going nowhere.

16.) 31 Dec 2019 17:04:12
Mr grumps., very arguably. jack and Kamara were way better . I remember Ryan jack bossing Brian our a game when he man marked him with Aberdeen.

Don’t think any of those two afore mentioned boys could help us .

17.) 01 Jan 2020 08:39:02
There was plenty on 'experts'on here who didn't rate/ want Jack and kamara molsgoals.

18.) 01 Jan 2020 13:33:28
True grumpy . but jack and Kamara are just on a different level for me . lookin good thou . that good you must be thinking of changing your handle to happy 😂aw the best pal.



27 Dec 2019 18:52:28
Had an interesting conversation with a customer today, not sure how much truth if any but he said he has connections with few people at EPL clubs and was up seeing family and friends for xmas. Anyway he was telling me he had been hearing that there are a few teams down south taking notice of Ryan Jack. Also said no move will be allowed January but we will be lucky to keep hold of him during summer. Personally think he is irreplaceable just now. I know all focus is on morelos but IMO its jack and not morelos we must reject all bids for iregardless of bid.


1.) 27 Dec 2019 19:11:06
It wouldn't surprise me bellshilllad83,if there were a good few teams interested in signing our captain in waiting, ryan jack. In saying that i have a very strong feeling that jacko quite possibly will stay with rangers for the rest of his career and that is my own personal take on it! He loves playing for rangers, his boyhood team. I just think he'll be one of few within football nowadays, who will stay with rangers for the remainder of his career. Like i've said on here many times now, i firmly believe ryan jack is currently the best midfielder in scottish football. Steven Gerrard has moulded jack into a fantastic, all round midfielder! Not for sale!

2.) 27 Dec 2019 20:07:59
S. g. l. , i agree with you mate, the only way ryan jack would leave rangers was if the money offered was too much to refuse the move, but if that were to happen ide think it would be a couple of years down the line, once other club see how good he is, over the years, real consistency.

3.) 27 Dec 2019 21:13:16
SGL he has done the same with ryan jack as he did with boy Henderson. Not only think jack is best midfielder but this season he is best player in Scotland. I hope you're right about staying rest of his career. Top class player.

4.) 27 Dec 2019 22:01:49
Don't think jack will/ would leave. Think he's loving life at Gers.

5.) 27 Dec 2019 23:06:12
Theres only a 2 people on the planet that makes few mistake one is Ryan Jack the other is Kofi Annan.

6.) 27 Dec 2019 22:50:35
Jeezo I hope Jack doesn't get his head turned by the big money on offer in the epl. As the guys have been saying, he is different class.




bellshilllad83's banter posts with other poster's replies to bellshilllad83's banter posts


15 Jan 2020 20:05:17
So am I accurate with the following clubs being linked with our players in media
Tav Newcastle
Goldson Fulham
Barisic Roma
Jones Middlesbrough
Morelos as many as 10 teams
Kamara palace, villa, arsenal
King man city, arsenal, Newcastle
Aribo saw arsenal also interested

Any I have forgot.


1.) 15 Jan 2020 21:05:44

2.) 15 Jan 2020 21:37:44
Young leon king I'm guessing TJ.



01 Jan 2020 15:48:20
So i have read various stories about our players being in big demand in EPL morelos, jones, kamara and tav. And barisic now being linked with move to italy. With them keeping up their great form that could be way in excess of 50million pouds worth of players. In my opinion i don't think just now we would miss jones as had lengthy injury. Could be repllaced by maybe hastie coming back from loan spell. I hope we keep hold of our players until the end of season but who are rumoured to be watching to replace them? I know Lewis Ferguson from Aberdeen and Aaron Hickey have caught the eye IMO hickey is couple seasons of regular first yeam football away yet. But any othe targets?


1.) 01 Jan 2020 17:32:26
I would like to see jones and kent together 1 left 1 right. But aribo is doing a fantastic job on the right at the moment.

2.) 01 Jan 2020 19:38:02
Only one that seems to have any substance is Lovre Mayer from Dinamo Zagreb. Plays in midfield but can also play as a number 10. Has fallen down the pecking order at Zagreb. Only stumbling block is the fee. probably 4/5 million but a player that we could certainly develop and shift on for a big profit.



01 Jan 2020 11:52:01
So recently I have seen stories linking morelos, kamara, jones and now barisic with moves away. For me these 4 players would command realistically possibly 50million more if they have decent summer if on international duty. And I wouldn't allow any to leave until summer but my question is who would be realistic replacements that we have been linked with. I would take Ferguson from Aberdeen as kamara replacement should he leave. Really like the boy and think he could emulate the contribution kamara has made.


1.) 01 Jan 2020 12:30:28
Who would you replace the others with that you mentioned, bellshilllad83?🤔.

2.) 01 Jan 2020 13:52:46
What's the fascination regarding Ferguson of Aberdeen, he's an ok player, certainly not Rangers class.

3.) 01 Jan 2020 14:45:50
The same was said about Jack and kamara.

4.) 01 Jan 2020 15:42:02
I just hope that none of the "top team" move in January, most managers say its hard to buy decent players in the January window, and we need our top players now for this push to the end of the season.

5.) 01 Jan 2020 15:51:52
Ferguson couldn't lace kamara's boots and is nowhere near as an ideal replacement for kamara. Kamara is starts every week. With the exception of aribo on the right, that was our best team against celtic. Why the feck would anyone want to ruin that by selling kamara and bringing in lewis ferguson. 🤦‍♂️👍.

6.) 01 Jan 2020 17:57:15
Whether u like him or not coldo aribo on the right is our best just now. Look at results and performances since he moved there, won every game big mans Bern scoring and setting up goals 👍.

7.) 01 Jan 2020 18:33:46
Coldo - correct my man, well said.

8.) 01 Jan 2020 20:18:09
No we haven't won every game herewego, we drew at aberdeen and got beat off celtic with aribo on the right. Our play is flowing better because we have taken aribo out of the middle and we have the right players in the middle. Aribo was chasing shawdow's all day against celtic. We need a RF in this window. Aribo is not the answer on the right or in the middle. 👍.

9.) 02 Jan 2020 10:59:40
Sometimes you can admit your wrong mate aribo is contributing as much as any other just now.



14 Dec 2019 11:01:01
I know our centre mid has a lot of talent but looking at last 2 games i wouldn't say we had a strong cm on the bench. I think king should return to Leicester next month as waste of a wage up here. And we look at another CM as Docherty isn't getting a look in.


1.) 14 Dec 2019 14:10:01
We have Steven Davis to return mate. That gives us a strong option from the bench. Be that Davis or whoever drops out. For me it's the right wing that needs addressing.



29 Nov 2019 19:31:40
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.

If it was me I would try everything to keep hold of him. He has off days and dips in form but he is the communicator or organiser in our back 4. You can see the calming influence he has when playing. If or when we win the league I reckon he would fancy a crack at champions league with us more than a move to teams mentioned. Guy is only what 26 or something so shows what he is capable of doing against CL opponents and its not top end championship/
Relegation battling EPL teams that come with offers.
IMO fee wise I would be looking for offers to be starting at maybe 7. With us looking for possible 10. With SG in charge he will be looking for English values. We need to back him to. Like he says if our guys were down south values would be huge. Just look at mcburnie costing 20 mil. can't even establish himself in a Scotland team with poor forward options.

With hellander being injured do we know if that will have any affect on either mccrorie [ possible recall] or young lewis mayo going on loan as we now only have goldson, katic and edmunson at CB. An injury could leave us a bit short.

6 counties come on. If our financial situation was that bad we would be selling morelos or kamara or barisic or tav we have a long list of players who could be sold tomorrow if we needed money. I know a few people one of which has great inside knowledge of our club and he isn't worried about our finances. Quite the opposite he thinks our accounts are where king thought they would be. Look for us to take huge advantage of the cross border bosmans from England with view to get cheap develop and sell on for huge profits. Aribo is an example of this. We will also see a growing number of Eastern European players coming to us. Again cheaper market with big potential. I would say other than the grezda disaster we have done well with katic and barisic. Surely at least double our money with both probably way more. Saw €10 million number being quoted for barisic, only cost us £2 million and katic if he can keep up his form and 1st team place the Croatian national coach has said he would make national team.

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.

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.
