I posted a few months ago about a rumour I heard regarding Gestede. I heard again today from a different person that he is on Gerrards radar as a replacement for Morelos. Could be BS, don't know the lad who told me too well but worth passing on the rumour.


1.) 05 Jul 2019 18:57:50
We have an older but much more reliable striker in Defoe. If we need to bring in another striker, I am led to believe that we will once again be looking for someone 25 years old or less. So Gestede is unlikely.

We are also going to face losing Kamara as lower EPL teams are looking to acquire him.

2.) 05 Jul 2019 20:04:46
well hope those teams are prepared to pay top dollar

fact we signed him 50k means bugger all now

if they want 16/ 18m for ntcham wots kamara worth.

3.) 05 Jul 2019 20:54:04
Weird criteria for a team trying to win the league, a replacement for Morelos must be 25 or under lol. I presumed if the player was available at the right price and would do a turn it wouldn't matter of he was 21 pr 31?

4.) 05 Jul 2019 21:21:35
That’s a joke surely.

5.) 05 Jul 2019 22:19:06
I have heard that morelos is to go then we might look at sturage to replace plus a young striker with potential.

{Ed033's Note - Is this someone called Stu Rage or Daniel Sturridge? :)

6.) 06 Jul 2019 15:48:28
If Morelos does go McBurnie would be the perfect replacement would love tae sign Sturridge as well.

7.) 06 Jul 2019 16:46:29
Mcburnie! Lmao best one yet.



07 Mar 2019 16:20:00
Heard a rumour today and just sharing. Don't know the lad but we got talking and he's a Rangers man and he's said that Rudy Gestede from Boro being considered as a potential replacement. Apparently the rumour has been doing the rounds in his local boozer in Airdrie.

Don't know if there is any substance, like I say I never knew this guy before today so don't shoot the messenger.


1.) 07 Mar 2019 22:11:09
Local boozer in Airdrie laughable the new mecca of transfer rumours.

2.) 08 Mar 2019 06:28:50
Instead of a minority on here who keep TRYING to ridicule any other bear, who's only sharing what he's heard, try and contribute instead of continually trying to put other supporters down all the time! Its a rumours page after all. This facility is for rumours amongst us all, to debate, instead of a continual few rubbishing anything, their fellow supporters post in! Git the fish and chips off your shoulders and act like fellow bears, ie. discuss opinions, don't repeatedly sconce others!

3.) 08 Mar 2019 06:57:49
Stevie G drinks in the staging post!

4.) 08 Mar 2019 09:01:44
think Gestede would be a decent singing, different to what we have. Hada good spell at Blackburn a coupel years ago and didn't quite cut it at EPL but reckon the physical game in scotland would suit him.

5.) 08 Mar 2019 09:22:42
SC11 I think you’ll find that 9 times out of 10 it’s not what you’ve supposedly heard that’s the problem. You come across as arrogant and speak to everyone like you’re our school teacher. You continually contradict yourself and end up looking like an absolute clown, and don’t get me started on your ridiculous polls. It seems to me you are now just feeling sorry for yourself.

6.) 08 Mar 2019 09:32:56
I was backing up j1985.He was only passing on what he heard

7.) 08 Mar 2019 12:54:22
This chap Gestede has only scored 4 goals this season. No big deal, not good enough for the Gers.

8.) 08 Mar 2019 14:16:21
Sharpshooter NAIL ON THE HEAD!

9.) 08 Mar 2019 16:19:47
Again sharpshooter spot on. Coop the amount of drivel you spout on here is it any wonder there is a queue to have a go at you. 👍.

10.) 09 Mar 2019 01:35:10
I've said where the rumour has come from. I don't have some elaborate link to the club. It was a Rangers man telling a fellow bluenose what he'd heard. The purpose of this page is to share rumours so regardless of where I get a rumour from I'll continue to share, inspite of the one sentence wonders with nothing constructive to say.



12 Jun 2017 10:43:43
BBC sport - Pedro hopes to concluded Dorrans deal in the next 48 hours.

IMO Dorrans signing would be the pick of the bunch. Excellent pedigree with playing the majority of his days at the highest level and at 30 still has a good few years to offer.


1.) 12 Jun 2017 12:31:36
I read somewhere that Dorrans had a 96% pass success ratio in the championship this year. Outstanding player.

2.) 12 Jun 2017 13:50:43
I'd prefer McArthur - he was in the papers a few months ago saying he would love to play for us. He would be my first choice but don't get me wrong Dorrans will be brilliant for us.

3.) 12 Jun 2017 17:22:22
Dorrans isn't outstanding lol

4.) 12 Jun 2017 18:39:10
not that i like to praise that lots players but commons was a solid championship attacking mid. came up here, banged them in and won player of the year. i rate dorrans higher than him!

5.) 12 Jun 2017 19:02:02
Dorrans IS outstanding compared to haliday

6.) 12 Jun 2017 22:18:12
I'm outstanding compared to Halliday
We'll struggle to offload him! All about the money



22 May 2017 23:24:12
Naismith a done deal - source, Charlie Miller at recent speakers night.


1.) 22 May 2017 23:38:30
So Charlie miller knows everything happening inside kbrox seriously. Only when the club announces deals should we believe them to be true. Otherwise we would have 10'0000 players on our books.

2.) 23 May 2017 00:51:13
Sorry James. I'll refrain from posting rumours on this rumours page shall i. And for the record, I never stated Miller knew all the goings on within Ibrox but a former player with ties to the club personally telling me a deals done is worth sharing with fellow fans.

3.) 23 May 2017 01:12:52

Naismith deal is already done, Charlie miller is spot on

I posted weeks ago it was a done deal, as I heard through a member of his family who was working in my neighbours house

4.) 23 May 2017 12:37:20
Most people are only happy on here if you post a story that's already happened. Apparently have no understanding of what rumour means

5.) 24 May 2017 03:38:42
Sorry but I don't believe naismith is back any man with any credit to himself would be ashamed to enter ibrox again after what he said .



17 Feb 2017 11:18:43
Kevin Muscat as manager and Craig Moore as director of football being rumoured in the press.


1.) 17 Feb 2017 11:42:42

2.) 17 Feb 2017 13:00:39
Outrageous nonsense

3.) 17 Feb 2017 20:22:11
the same craig moore who prioritised a socceroos WC qualifier against Tonga or was it the Solomon Islands - and effectively refused to play for us in a crucial CL qualifier.

I wldnt let him anywhere near Ibrox ever again

We need an experienced manager / coach who is mentally strong and able to cope with the relentless pressure and high standards that come with managing a club of our size

I've been critical of Tav this season, particularly after the Young Boys game in Switzerland however I thought he had his best game in a Rangers Jersey on Sunday. Looked so assured defensively and with the emergence of Barasic at lett back there isn't that pressure on him to he our sole contributor going forward from full back. I see Kent and Borna are on set piece duties too, hopefully this performance can be the catalyst for a improved second half of the season for Tav.

Wonder is Mark Wilson still has Frimpong ahead of Tav in his old firm 11 eh? I see the young lad has went from hero to zero with the Celtic faithful after Sunday, oh my days!


1.) 01 Jan 2020 10:32:03
I wonder who gerrard has selected as our new penalty taker now? He said before the old firm game that he told the player who he's chosen for penalty duties, so that IF we got a penalty against them at breezeblock boulevard (fat chance of that), there would be no confusion as to who was to take it. I after a good think about it would let barisic take our penalties! He has a very cultured,
accurate, wicked left foot! What's other bears thoughts on this? 🤔.

2.) 01 Jan 2020 10:52:21
Apparently nine of the combined OF 11 were darksiders? Joke! And I heard some one say yesterday that every one of their subs on Sunday would have been first picks for us! Just keep thinking that pal, I said, that'll do me just fine 😁😁.

3.) 01 Jan 2020 15:34:32
Seeker, ime surprized at your post mate. i thought you. Knew that's how it works, lol. happy new year to you and your family mate.



31 Dec 2019 00:36:05
Anyone else spot Brown whacking Tav at the corner where Clancy awarded them the pen? Another incident that the ref missed and media failed to highlight. If it was Alfie you could guarantee the press would be all over it.




04 Jun 2019 23:37:16
If Morelos goes for in excess of £10m then we should be looking at Jay Rodriguez of WBA. Apparently he's available for £5m (release clause - I assume was added if WBA failed to get promotion to the PL)

Hope this is the calibre of player Stevie G is looking at, 29 year old, premier league experience and although he's had his injury issues he's scored goals wherever he's been.


1.) 05 Jun 2019 13:29:47
He is a good player but 5m for a 29 year old is too big for us to pay when we probably won't get much out the other end. Could only see us spending that amount on a younger player with room to grow that we can sell on for a profit.



03 Jan 2019 14:02:36
No disciplinary action against Morelos as per reports online. Thank God the SFA have seen sense and all the tims and press can wind their necks back in.

Thought John Beaton had an excellent game. Wasn't card happy, let the game flow and used common sense throughout.


1.) 03 Jan 2019 14:21:47
Must admit i think he is lucky to escape a ban. He really needs to screw the nut. Yes, go in hard as he normally would, but cut out the silly kick outs and petulant flicks. They will be watching him closer than ever now. We need him on the park, not sitting in the stand.

2.) 03 Jan 2019 14:26:02
Good news indeed, but he continues doing daft things that could get him in trouble. I agree that John Beaton had an excellent game, football is a physical game and a card happy ref can ruin it.

3.) 03 Jan 2019 14:47:08
Very surprised but relieved. Queue the meltdown from the east.

4.) 03 Jan 2019 15:13:24
i honestly don't think there was ever a chance he was going to get suspended. The "incidents" were trivial and didn't warrant a red card. stupid to do them but nothing in them

and due to the fact the sfa create a line when rescinded his red against sheep on day one meant they couldn't ban him as these were by far and away a lesser "offence" than the kick at ocooner.

5.) 03 Jan 2019 15:25:06
Just read that “big nose Sutton “ is calling the SFA shambolic for not finding Morelos guilty, no one was hurt last week, it’s not as if they were serious challenges, big nose reminds me of a baby who doesn’t get his food on time, always yapping. Ok Morelos is no saint, but was Sutton? or is Brown? People have short memories, especially that clown with the big snout.

6.) 03 Jan 2019 15:49:59
Watched the game again last night
The ref gave a foul for kicking Browns nuts and was in a completely unobstructed view for the other two incidents.
To go against the ref's decision of a foul would have been a big decision and to say the ref saw what happened, chose to take no action would be a huge decision -tantamount to saying ref was totally cheating
but Fredo does need to screw the bobbin.

7.) 03 Jan 2019 15:48:45
Think SG needs a word with El Buffalo. Every area of Press/ Media going to be on his back for every reaction he makes. Time he realised this and screwed the nut. My initial reaction on thought of Defoe and Davis coming was one of salivation. But also Defoe might help Buffalo to calm down.



04 Nov 2018 20:45:06
Anyone else like the look of big Kamberi of Hibs? Thought he was outstanding in the final game of last season against us and showed glimpses against Hearts last midweek as well as scoring a cracker against them at Parkhead last month.

I'd be looking at him in January as an option btw. Big, strong, mobile and knows the league and more importantly has a track record of scoring in it. I believe he's on loan and I'm sure we'd be able to outbid Hibs to get this guy on a permanent deal.


1.) 04 Nov 2018 23:02:47
Hibs bought him in the summer for like £100k.

2.) 05 Nov 2018 00:18:07
I thought Hibs signed him permanently in the summer for a knock down fee?

3.) 05 Nov 2018 02:21:30
What’s the point in trying to do business with Hibs, has he not just signed for them in the summer? Be paying way over the odds.

I’d like to see a player that can create and score goals coming in, a proper number 10.

4.) 05 Nov 2018 14:56:13
Brought this up a few weeks ago, think he would have been a very good signing in the summer since he can lead line and play as 10.
Wonder what sort of fee would be required to get him now.

5.) 05 Nov 2018 21:19:23
Had no idea Hibs signed the boy permanently, thought he was back on loan. Scrap that suggestion then, wouldn't give them lot a penny.

Theres no arguing with fans like you Deano, honestly.

Lafferty always has attitude problems, first time round Walter got the best out of him, Gerrard clearly struggles with man management and was never going to get a tune out of the big man. Dykes is at a totally different stage of his career, he's literally on the verge of securing his first international cap with Australia and will be hungry to secure more and develop as a player. He knows our league and had proven that with some brillant performances, not limited to but including against Celtic, so for me it's a low risk signing.

I'm sure if the lad was playing for a mid table Norwegian club he would be touted as the next big thing by you Deano. The snobbery that exists amongst our support when talking about players in our domestic league is ridiculous.

Dyke has 3 less league goals than Alfie and 5 more assists. They are impressive stats for a striker playing for a lesser team in the League.

Why look abroad when there is a ready made centre forward who knows has a track record of scoring and assisting in the league we need to win playing with Livi.

Yeah you are right, a big powerful centre forward who bullies Celtic's centre halves for fun is not the answer.

Nonsense. Because Tierny went for that money doesn't mean Barasic will. He hasn't played a CL game in his entire career and like the rest of the team he has been poor since the winter break. Tierny won everything domestically and played CL football season after season. If Barasic has a good Euros then I can see us getting upwards of 10m which is a good return for a player who has only really had a good half season since he signed.

As for Brophy and Shankland, no way, not good enough. Ferguson yes 100% but i doubt Aberdeen will be easy to deal with, Dykes would be a useful player for us domestically. Need to look at quality over quantity if we have any aspirations of improving.

McCrorie has been a massive miss for us, he will be like a new signing, jury is still out on Helnader and between now and the end of the season I'd like to see what the academy has to offer. We'll have played like Stephen Kelly and McPake coming back next season with a season in the lower leagues under their belts, let's see what these boys can offer too.

If he continues this kind of form with both club and country he could well be our most valuable asset. Particularly if he has a good Euro 2020 with Croatia.

Its honestly comical sirstruth. On Talksport the day after the game moaning about the way Gerrard slapped Lennons hand rather than shook it. Gerrard doesn't need lessons on how to behave off a guy who kicks team mates in the face.

If any grown adult is truly offended by Alfie or Kent's gesture then they need to take a long hard look at themselves. Sutton and Hartson have been an embarrassment in the wake of the old firm game. I had to pinch myself to see if I was dreaming when listening to Hartson on Talksort the other morning. And Sutton with the gestures and Gerrard over celebrating is an all time low even for that man. Klopp gets praised for his passion week in week out for the same level of celebration as Gerrard showed on Sunday. can't wait to see the reaction when we win this league.

The ref was terrible. Christie got booked for a foul and then less than 10 mins later he handled the ball whilst he was on the ground just outside our box which the ref gives as another foul, he should have gone for that as it was a deliberate hand ball. Worst refereeing performance in a long time, just glad it never cost us.

Ojo getting stick is a bit harsh. He came on for the second half and at least had a go. There was a few worse performers today, Defoe for one. But it seems Defoe is exempt from all form of criticism.
