Reports about Alfredo wanton a move in January, will this happen? If so for how much and who would we target as replacement?

bgate w

1.) 01 Nov 2019 15:03:29
That's wanton speculation that is.

2.) 01 Nov 2019 15:21:48
There will be in interest in a proven goal scorer. It will depend if the move suits all parties involved. 👍.

3.) 01 Nov 2019 16:16:55
Saw this rumour seemingly something he has said on radio back home. I would want to keep him but if he is to go in January window we must get top dollar for him. Realistically it depends who comes in but with 11 goals in Europe and the temper being controlled better i would be asking 20 especially with his call ups to national team and he is rarely injured.
Replacement will be difficult. I think SG and wilson/ allan will have something lined up. Personally think uk based just now maybe short term solution then change in summer to longer term solution. Think possibly defoe being main with younger talent coming off the bench.

4.) 01 Nov 2019 17:53:56
The jan market usually means inflated prices so hopefully if we do have to sell then we need to insist on top dollar. Personally I feel that a league winners medal and top goal scorer in league will inflate his price further so keep him until summer.

5.) 01 Nov 2019 18:20:09
Will the old excuse "lost in translation" be rolled out for this one?

6.) 01 Nov 2019 21:24:36
He didn’t say he wanted to leave he said if a club in a more competitive league came in for him he would think about it.

7.) 01 Nov 2019 19:55:14
he's going nowhere, even if a good offer comes in. He's here at least to win the league and maybe longer. I really hate how some of our fans are willing to see our players sold off and speculate on money, replacements etc.

8.) 01 Nov 2019 19:59:05
I hope this is BS as were approaching a semi final and the usual story's come out to unsettle him and us. It wasnt mentioned at the press conference today but the only thing that's stopping me saying this is total BS is Gerrard looked a wee bit upset and angry so i'm looking at it two ways he's giving daggers to the press for printing a BS story or he is upset at Alf, i'm hoping daggers. If Dafoe starts on Sunday then we will have food for thought. However i'm probably reading to much into all this as the interview its probably all out of context and has anybody actually heard the interview, no. The Agent looking for a payday perhaps.

9.) 01 Nov 2019 22:45:19
This is nothing but mischief by 'so called Rangers Fans'. If an offer comes in, Rangers, like every Club in Scotland would consider it with Alfie, until it does, let's just concentrate on moving forward as we are at present.

10.) 02 Nov 2019 11:58:32
Hes never hid his ambition to go to englsnd or one of the top leagues. Its not like he's lied about it.

11.) 02 Nov 2019 14:15:11
Why do our fans keep reacting t9 the nonsense?

Headlines sell newspapers but rarely are truthful!

Wise up and ignore the nonsense.

12.) 03 Nov 2019 08:45:58

Will go

If the

Money is


Face the facts👍.

13.) 03 Nov 2019 09:15:36

more tosh!

Everyone has

a price


but timing

is the issue

Gerrard will

not allow

him to

leave in

January and jeopardise winning the league!

14.) 03 Nov 2019 10:46:17
20mil plus

15.) 03 Nov 2019 10:52:28

16.) 03 Nov 2019 18:04:29
Not according ti the gaffer 2day.

17.) 03 Nov 2019 22:13:16
He's hardly going to say he's off is he paul? I hope to god he stays but surely you are not naive to think that a serious bid won't take him away in january? 👍.

18.) 04 Nov 2019 09:31:29
And to think you would have punted him for £4 million a few months ago Coldo.

19.) 04 Nov 2019 09:44:44
No souness I never said that, 12 - 15mil with a sell on was what I said a few months ago. You are talking single fish again👍.

20.) 04 Nov 2019 13:48:00
Either way Coldo, it was well under his valuation and you said there was no way anyone would ever pay decent cash for him. You also wanted to drop him if i recall, once again proving that you have little idea about the value or quality of our squad.

21.) 04 Nov 2019 14:32:33
Either way lol, so you admit you are talking single fish, 12 - 15mil is decent money by any standards, however he is worth more now because he has a better attitude And yes I and many others wanted him dropped but he changed his attitude and is a completely different player👍.

22.) 04 Nov 2019 15:09:52
I'm sure Morelos sleeps better at night knowing he has your blessing finally.

23.) 04 Nov 2019 16:46:32
I'm sure he sleeps better now because he doesn't feel guilty for letting the fans, team mates, the club and his manager down with his petulant behaviour. He does look a lot happier. 👍.

24.) 05 Nov 2019 11:10:08
The club, manager, players and fellow fans are forever in your debt Coldo.

25.) 05 Nov 2019 12:05:06
He must feel better not getting grief of his own 'fans' who wanted to punt him for £12 million or whatever it was, even though he was our top scorer. Over-entitlement anyone?



12 Aug 2019 17:15:17
Anyone know where or what is happening with Zak rudden? Not playing in development games or senior squads?

bgate w

1.) 12 Aug 2019 19:20:08
he's on loan as far as i know.

2.) 12 Aug 2019 19:39:40
Zak Rudden Has NOT gone out on loan Yet but I do expect that to change in the next few weeks.

3.) 12 Aug 2019 19:49:33
Thought he got injured pre season.

4.) 13 Aug 2019 04:41:39
I saw him in Govan Asda the other day browsing at the chicken. He was wearing an AC Milan trackie and a Chicago Bulls hat. He’s either been shipped out on loan to AC or he’s started at the the basketball.

5.) 13 Aug 2019 08:20:57
I did hear he scored a 3 pointer in 4th year at school, yeah expect a move to the NBA to be imminent.

6.) 13 Aug 2019 21:34:29
Hahaha stuarty class mate.

7.) 14 Aug 2019 12:26:04
think he is injured still.

8.) 14 Aug 2019 15:23:01
For those you enquiring about Zac Rudden he's not joined AC or playing basketball. St ruth was right, he injured his knee but according to Stevie at today's presser he is now back in training.

9.) 14 Aug 2019 15:44:01
Rudden has a knee injury, missed all off pre season.
I think started back Monday.



08 Aug 2019 08:52:52
Brandon barker permanent deal, source daily mail. I'd prefer Kent but if that's not going to happen I've always liked barker as a player, he knows the league well.

bgate w

1.) 08 Aug 2019 10:17:57
Yet another mediocre winger to add to Jones, Hastie Grezda, Stewart etc. Policy for attacking players seems to be throw as much at the wall as you can and see what sticks. Very poor window in that sense.

2.) 08 Aug 2019 11:09:43
Are we going to play with 10 wingers and a goalkeeper?

3.) 08 Aug 2019 11:44:09
Underwhelming going from Kent to Barker if I'm honest. If he signs he still deserves our 100% support as soon as he pulls that top on 👍.

4.) 08 Aug 2019 11:56:57
Good signing for me.

5.) 08 Aug 2019 12:26:27
You are missing middleton of the list of average wingers. Think that spells the end for murphy if he does sign. Barker is above these players imo. Also stewart i don't think he been taken in as a winger he's out 3rd striker. we don't have 1pmill for kent wish folk would drop it.

6.) 08 Aug 2019 13:42:29
What you talking about too many wingers?

We’ve lost Kent Candeias Middleton. We only have Jones!

It’s beggars belief in here!

7.) 08 Aug 2019 13:59:35
don't think middleton is an average winger. He's a young lad, give the lad time/ a chance.

8.) 08 Aug 2019 14:46:36
Yip we only have Jones. oh and hastie, ojo, murphy, mcpake, Stewart, possible dorrans. But basically just one, yeah.

9.) 08 Aug 2019 14:54:45
Orange tinted. Hastie nowhere near the level. mcpake still young laddie. Murphy may never be same player stewart brought in as a striker. And dorrans is not a winger.

10.) 08 Aug 2019 15:21:28
Paul86 that's not my point lol. Someone said we have 1 winger. That isn't true. Regardless of your personnel opinion on them all. And also, who told you Stewart is in as a striker. Plus dorrans played on wing with livi. And I only said possible dorrans, not definitely dorrans.

11.) 08 Aug 2019 15:48:15
grezda is leaving, hastie not ready, candi gone, murphy still not himself, no kent. jones only real left winger ready, hence scotty there but not there v killie. barker makes sense because he can play both wings aswell and a free transfer . never happy most gers there's days.



05 Jul 2019 14:55:45
Apparently crystal palace sniffing around Alfredo!

bgate w

1.) 05 Jul 2019 15:02:27
Bgatew also West Ham and Brighton monitoring.

2.) 05 Jul 2019 15:54:00
sniffing is all they will do. or a insulting offer. guy should be a 20 mil+ player in any other league, or with Celtic. I'd keep him another year happily. a 30 goals a season player doesn't grow on trees.



29 May 2019 16:46:24
Was told by a friend who's been working in Brighton that we are interested in tomer hemmed who was on loan at QPR. apparently it was the rumour among Brighton fans. don't know if anything in it but thought I'd share it anyway.

bgate w

1.) 29 May 2019 17:08:19
think I remember him bgate - a quick forward?

2.) 29 May 2019 17:09:07
Sure we tried to sign him like 10 year ago? Might be wrong.

3.) 29 May 2019 17:32:35
Remember him a while back, decent player then


4.) 29 May 2019 18:41:37
Just looked online it was 8 year ago he rejected a move to us in favour of real mallorca.

5.) 30 May 2019 08:20:47
Pretty sure he slagged us off as well. He can p! ss off.

6.) 30 May 2019 10:37:56
Defoe and morelas (if he stays) are our front 2. Now who would you prefer on the bench Lafferty or Carroll. I know who I would prefer. Carroll has the ability when brought on as a sub to change the game, in those games that we are struggling. With tav delivery Carroll would smash it up here.

7.) 30 May 2019 12:07:27
Carrolls wages were ridiculous at West Ham would you be willing to pay £90,000 a week for him to be a bench player>.

Just watched a game v hubs and barker really gave tavernier water on the head, how can he never do that for us?

bgate w

1.) 21 Jun 2020 12:17:39
Different pressure to perform at a bigger Club I guess bgate, There's definitely a player in there, but lacks confidence in his ability I feel.

2.) 21 Jun 2020 15:15:28
Barker was also playing against a very defensively poor right back.



20 Jun 2020 15:39:10
The boy Brewster we got linked with certainty looks the part 2 goals for Swansea today unlucky not to he hattrick!

bgate w

1.) 20 Jun 2020 17:50:00
Brewster is on a different level to the players we've had on loan.
He'd be a good signing.

2.) 20 Jun 2020 18:45:54
100% Mr Grumpy

Liverpool have always had very high hopes of Brewster, he got a bad injury a couple of seasons ago.
They think he could go all the way the boy.



16 Jun 2020 09:12:42
Kamberi apparently available for 150k should we sign him or would he just be a bench warmer?

bgate w

1.) 16 Jun 2020 10:09:52
I say sign him. £150k isn't much nowadays and he looks big and strong to me.

2.) 16 Jun 2020 10:35:39
For that outlay it’s a no brainer! he looked sharp and hungry in the appearances he had IMO. He’d be a great addition to squad and I’m sure he wouldn’t be brought as number 1 if Fredo goes, Defoe is on the downward curve now but think he’d be invaluable to the like of Kamberi as a learning resource.



12 Jun 2020 16:19:27
Say we hold on to our best players, I'd say a striker is needed for a different option a big physical presence like jelavic, cousan on his day or hatley! A player with a wee bit of dig in midfield, a right back a right sided forward. Before anyone brings up the tav debates, tavernier can split opinion but a right good right back would either replace tavernier or push him on to consistently play at a level some people think can.

bgate w

1.) 12 Jun 2020 17:13:26
Spot on bgate. However if resources allow I think Rangers may bring in two strikers.

2.) 12 Jun 2020 17:13:29
We should appoint a new club captain and do it ASAP. Of the current squad Jack is the best option. If he stays Tav should be forced to fight for his place at RB.

3.) 12 Jun 2020 17:58:49
We also need a left back - someone to fill in for Barisic when he is injured.

4.) 12 Jun 2020 18:45:20
Couldnt agree more. Particularly RM or Right Wing, I know Candias split opinion on occasion however IMO we would have been stronger last season with him rather than Ojo/ Arf/ Aribo in that RW position. We were possibly caught out at the last minute with that one. I know he wasnt the best Ranger player ever but he would have balanced the team out quite nicely however we now need someone with better quality and the same attitude and fitness Candias showed week in week out.

5.) 12 Jun 2020 19:17:46
Zicos I think bassey is for first team squad he’s a left back.

6.) 12 Jun 2020 19:21:38
Zikos. Is the new signing Bassey not the competition for Barisic?

7.) 12 Jun 2020 19:52:48
Bankie, ryan jack or scotty arfield would both be good choices as rangers captain imo!

8.) 12 Jun 2020 21:55:58
Thought Bassey was another one for the future tbh. Well we will see pretty quickly so if he isn’t we will have time before the market closes. But then again Ojo looked pretty good the first few games.



08 Jun 2020 17:28:10
Fellow fans, what position-positions do we need to improve to win the league. How many players are needed and what positions?

bgate w

1.) 08 Jun 2020 18:34:51
Two solid CBs, a right back that can defend A solid no nonsense centre mid and a striker that can stay on the park so 3 or 4 🙏🙏.

2.) 08 Jun 2020 18:44:23
Right wing and a right back.

3.) 08 Jun 2020 18:51:04
I think we need at least 5 players

Most of all we need a commanding CB with bags of experience,

A top keeper to fight it out with Mcgregor for the no1 jersey,

A defensive midfield enforcer someone with loads of energy and not scared to fight it out with the big boys.

I also think we should be looking for a target man up front,

And finally a speed machine up front it’s something we’ve been lacking for a while.

4.) 08 Jun 2020 19:04:17
1 x back up GK
1 x CB
2 x athletic and powerful midfielders
2 x strikers if Alfie stays. 3 if he goes.

Then we win the league.

Personally I’d like two of these to be Dykes and Ferguson. They know the league and have big potential.

5.) 08 Jun 2020 19:36:33
Keeper to bridge the gap between McGregor and McCrorie longer term, a first choice right back backed up by Patterson for a season or two, another CH as I think one of Goldson, Helander Katic will go, we need four first team ready CHs and Edmundson features in my thinking. Kamara out and Davis slowing so maybe one more in there with Docherty, and a first choice number 9. Someone taller and physical as Alfie May stay or go, Defoe will feature and Stewart/ Kamberi who knows. I’d like us to play 2 strikers and have 4 strong options all pushing each other, so if you’re not scoring, someone else comes in. So in summary:


6.) 08 Jun 2020 19:48:20
Isn't filip helander a commanding centre half with bags of experience HighlandBear81?🤔.

7.) 08 Jun 2020 19:52:56
right winger and speedy striker No matter how many we sign.

8.) 08 Jun 2020 20:50:35
Goalkeeper (challenge mcgregor)
2 centre backs (speaks for itself
Right winger (move Hagi behind the central)

9.) 08 Jun 2020 21:09:46
SGL I might be wrong but in my opinion no he’s definitely not commanding, and maybe you know better than me but He’s played 8 times for us and I’ve got to be honest I’d never heard of the guy before we signed him, of the times I’ve seen him, I wasn’t overly impressed I’m not saying that he’s no good, but I’ve not seen enough to trust him as our main CB. I don’t rate goldson and katic and Edmondson are both early 20s I’d like to see a 30/ 32 year old that’s won things that won’t be afraid to take charge of that back 4 cause I don’t see anyone doing that.

10.) 08 Jun 2020 22:20:13
Blue blue sea you need to go back to school. You said we need 2 x CB, 1 x RB, 1 x Midfield, 1 x Striker, “so 3 or 4”. Let’s do the maths; 2+1+1+1=5 haha.

11.) 08 Jun 2020 22:40:58
I think Ross McCrorie is the energetic physical DM we need.

12.) 08 Jun 2020 22:56:25
HighlandBear81, I agree, I think he lacks pace, I believe Bassey can play that role also if needed, and from what we're told he has a good engine.

13.) 09 Jun 2020 08:20:08
I agree irvger, that helander lacks pace but all his other attributes are good.

Docherty in my opinion hasn’t shown he’s good enough, aye he’s never had a run but I watched him with jobs and Shrewsbury he can score a goal but playing for rangers is different as most teams play deep meaning less space. In 50/ 50s I seen him in he lost most of these and was often brushed aside and his ball retention is not great.
