Rumours in local press here, that coventry are interested in Barron?


1.) 18 May 2024 15:20:11
Believe Barron will be a Rangers player next season.

2.) 18 May 2024 16:03:28
My star I’m not o inched

Been text a name, African winger Mofokeng. Done deal.

3.) 18 May 2024 16:08:53
I’ve heard from someone I know who is a Sheep and has contacts within them and Barron will not be coming to us and that the boy wants to play in a better league, this guy I know coukd just be spouting nonsense as he despises us.

4.) 18 May 2024 16:24:54
Mofor-king goals please.

5.) 18 May 2024 16:27:26
John he could be a good signing mate, see a few top clubs are looking at him.

6.) 18 May 2024 16:46:08
I believe Mofokeng makes Yilmaz look tall ? imagine them being our left side. We’ll get battered in SPL.

7.) 18 May 2024 16:46:48
Seems to be a few different stories around about Barron. I guess we'll find out in the next few days once Aberdeen's season is over where he will be going.

8.) 18 May 2024 16:55:40
John, can you translate? ?

'My star I’m not o inched'

9.) 18 May 2024 17:19:50
His name sounds like what celtic supports said when mo signed for us.

10.) 18 May 2024 17:21:38
Mofokeng was put up as a rumour 5 days ago on Goal. com.

11.) 18 May 2024 17:21:50
convinced I think he meant.

12.) 18 May 2024 18:01:44
I’m not convinced, Scott.

13.) 18 May 2024 18:47:25
I'm reading he's only 5f 3 inches. certainly not going to score too many headers.

14.) 18 May 2024 19:53:44
I think the malian winger adama traore who currently plays for Ferencvaros looks like a better option John, and we're linked with him also. ? He has a terrific goal scoring record for a winger ??.

15.) 18 May 2024 20:11:36
Bornabear, yilmaz 5ft 9. not exactly a midget.

16.) 18 May 2024 20:55:04
Walter fits us perfectly has missed 25% of season through injury.

17.) 18 May 2024 21:16:07
Young and raw skill full positive player

Here’s hoping he makes the step up

Type of signing that’s a no brainer.

18.) 18 May 2024 22:37:08
Paul86 Yilmaz comes in at just under 5ft 7in.

19.) 19 May 2024 00:25:18
No danger is Yilmaz 5ft9. Not even in high heels ?.

20.) 19 May 2024 03:38:10
Wouldnt worry about his height, Literally in an African league they probably have the same amount of hammer throwers as our league.

21.) 19 May 2024 08:51:25
Fifa, uefa, transfermarkt etc etc all have him in at 1.74 (5ft9)

22.) 19 May 2024 13:53:24
Yilmaz in high heels lol going to chuckle and think that every time I see him now cheers blue ??.



21 Apr 2024 20:03:56
Don't know if we are looking at o'hare of coventry, there were rumours that we were earlier this season. Well he had an excellent game against man utd today, a busy midfielder always looking to push and run forwards and never looked out of place against them. On a free, would be a good signing. We wait and see!


1.) 22 Apr 2024 08:02:02
Looks a great player who's very versatile. Loves to play forward and always wants the ball. I hope we sign him, he's an upgrade on hagi.

2.) 22 Apr 2024 08:07:25
Sounds like same thing folk said about dowell bacuna and similar signings

Sorry but an attacking midfielder with a poor goals record is hardly exciting prospect

Need to sign better.

3.) 22 Apr 2024 09:10:06
Whats your record.

4.) 22 Apr 2024 09:19:44
Gofor, I agree but we also need depth in the squad, especially in the attacking areas for next season. If he's on a free got nothing to lose really.

5.) 22 Apr 2024 09:20:11
GFB if you base signings on stats then you'll never sign anyone at rangers.

Stats ruin football.

Use your eyes. He's an excellent player.

6.) 22 Apr 2024 09:24:37
Gofor O'hare would be some signing for Rangers mate, but can't really see us getting him, be many top end of championship teams and a few lower epl will be wanting him, reckon he plays epl football next season.

7.) 22 Apr 2024 09:55:15
I think he would be a good signing but I think he will be in epl next season.

8.) 22 Apr 2024 11:19:43
The manager has a a load of duds to shift first before he can get anything in, the club are chucking wages down a bottomless pit.

There are a couple at Dundee and Cochrane at Hearts I would like and as a few have said possibly 1 or 2 at Killie, just got to move at least the same number on, possibly more.

9.) 22 apr 2024 12:55:12
do you think pc knows he must only sign players who score 3 a week.

10.) 22 Apr 2024 16:05:53
Watched Coventry a few times this season and Ohare was their stand out player, been on bench a few times last couple of months but only because of contract situation, their big striker Simms who was on loan at Hearts a couple of seasons ago is banging the goals in looks a different player for them.

11.) 22 Apr 2024 17:57:28
Do you have any stats to back that up TJN?

12.) 22 Apr 2024 21:02:03
Stats to back what up?

I literally said if you're looking for stat padders we won't sign anyone.

Presuming you didn't watch the Coventry United game? That's evidence enough how good he is.

He'll go to the Premier league and we'll have missed another great player.

13.) 23 Apr 2024 16:55:56
Sorry mystar but you talk up everyone and are far too positive and maybe a bit more perspective I tried to say to you at start last season about dowell and injuries I was proved correct

I said to folk about raskin not being much better than a decent spl player so far I don’t think he’s proved to be better done very little at rangers

People watch oh are one game against united and jump on bandwagon he’s having a decent season I agree on that but he has his injuries couple series ones previously his team play mostly on break and not on top of teams like rangers are in Scotland

I said lammers had something and had to be played as a cf to properly asses the guy appears to be bearing true although I still feel he’s a bit too soft for Scottish football

I stand by dessers for me is not a first choice cf he’s done more than enough to earn a squad place though someone we can rotate with a better forward i can still see Clement opting for a new striker though if we have the funds

So I don’t just say I don’t think someone good enough for sake of it I look into injuries game time stats and view performances and other things.

14.) 23 Apr 2024 19:51:57
Coopersdad- you have watched The Sky Blues a few times, and having watched the game v Man Utd - Victor Torp impressed.
Do you rate him?

15.) 23 Apr 2024 22:33:53
Best Coventry player this season gofor, again epl next season you watch and see ?.

16.) 25 Apr 2024 17:15:19
Given the number of players leaving that will really include Goldson and Lundstrum and possibly Tav then I believe that we need two new centre backs, a central midfield player and a striker as a bare minimum. All need to be a lot better than what we currently have.



08 Feb 2024 19:48:30
Were we appealing against sterling's red card today? Any news on it?


1.) 08 Feb 2024 20:34:16
Appeal was rejected. Two game ban.

2.) 08 Feb 2024 20:45:05
Rejected. Fast track decision.

3.) 08 Feb 2024 20:50:40
We have appealed it yeah.

4.) 08 Feb 2024 21:06:35
Lost the appeal.

5.) 08 Feb 2024 21:07:01
The appeal failed.

6.) 08 Feb 2024 21:51:29
We were always going to lose that appeal. Referees in media lately saying not getting support from Hampden and a ref finally sticks to their on field decisions
decision. All politics but he misses Ayr and Ross County I think so we’ll cope without and move on.

I said it yesterday and say it again, never a red and ref stuck to that decision out of arrogance.

7.) 08 Feb 2024 23:03:22
Always had to appeal it to be fair but never thought they would let him off, two games that we should be ok without him tho, newsboys should get a start on Saturday still keep a strong line up tho until game is won then get subs on, time to get used to burying teams and get games won as quick as possible, win every game up to split should be enough to wrap up title.

8.) 08 Feb 2024 23:12:43
Feel for Sterling though I’d imagine he would have been starting on Saturday so although we will cope without him it’s a kick in the teeth for him personally.

9.) 09 Feb 2024 00:20:52
People need to take blue tints off he's lunged and landed on boys foot easily a red and no way the appeal was going to work.

We should be compiling the events of season though desser/ roofe goal
The handball last game blatant decisions that seem to keep going in celtics favour the obvious media campaign against rangers with penalties even though celtic have had more in league and conceded none and keep getting soft decisions.

10.) 09 Feb 2024 03:28:32
Red card every day of the week.

11.) 09 Feb 2024 04:01:35
That wasn’t a red and it wasn’t a lunge he slipped studs weren’t showing either. It’s one thing I can’t be accused of is blue tinted specs.

12.) 09 Feb 2024 06:48:31
I was told I obviously have never played football at any level if I thought that was a red. Didn't realise you were only allowed an opinion if you had played.
Storm there was a slip but I've looked at it over and over and the slip happens at the same time as contact is made, it didn't cause the contact, it did mean he followed
through and made it look worse. It
was a silly challenge that didn't need to be made in that area of the pitch and he gave the ref an excuse to flash the red.

13.) 09 Feb 2024 08:07:20
Yeah the chosen few on here that have played the game nonsense Jfm63. don't know why they are on a fans forum in the 1st place has they clearly know more than the rest of us. Guys that played the game 25 years ago know very little of the game now as its completely different to when they played. The other one that's appearing a lot on here a lot is the Clement knows better chat. Yes of course he does but this is a fans forum for fans to debate all things Rangers.

14.) 09 Feb 2024 08:55:11
Thought it was a red personally. Easily meets the first criteria of endangering an opponent and excessive force. Could easily meet the second criteria as well (though I don't think it was a lunge I think it was a slip - either way, the lunge isn't required, the excessive force and endangering an opponent criteria is enough) .

Actual IFAB Rules wording:

Serious foul play
A tackle or challenge that endangers the safety of an opponent or uses excessive force or brutality must be sanctioned as serious foul play.

Any player who lunges at an opponent in challenging for the ball from the front, from the side or from behind using one or both legs, with excessive force or endangers the safety of an opponent is guilty of serious foul play.

15.) 09 Feb 2024 09:27:18
I'm a qualified referee and tbh I don't think it's a red, however I can also see why the ref did give red in real time due to speed sterling went in at. I'm surprised he didn't overturn it at the monitor tho.

16.) 09 Feb 2024 10:03:57
Endangers the safety of an opponent?
Standing on someones toe? Both feet on the ground?
I know what guys i wouldn't want playing for my team or having my back, wow.
Are we now penalising players for being bigger, stronger and faster?

If that's a red card then there is going to be 3 or 4 red card a game.

Celtic vs Hibs, Ralston goes through the Hibs player in the build up to the 2nd penalty, yes he wins the ball but has slide in two feet off the ground and put the Hibs player up in the air.

So is it ok to endanger a player if you win the ball?

17.) 09 Feb 2024 10:09:00
As much as I would rather we weren't as lightweight in todays game. That is a red card all day long by todays standards and had I seen it in any other game I would have expected him to stick to his decision.

18.) 09 Feb 2024 10:58:49
Ally with the dictionary definition of blue tinted specs there.

He was neither standing nor had two feet on the ground, Sterling literally slid right through him (though obviously unintentionally) and wiped him out after he stood on his toe.

If he hadn't slipped and gone through him, he wouldn't have been sent off IMO, but he did so he was.

And "winning the ball" means nothing in the modern game, no. If you win the ball with excessive force endangering an opponent you're walking. We've seen it multiple times.

19.) 09 Feb 2024 11:14:51
At the game I thought it was 100% red card all day however after having seen it back although it was careless, definitely only a yellow.

20.) 09 Feb 2024 12:23:10
Never a red.

21.) 09 Feb 2024 12:50:50
It was never a red but the appeals committee were nevr going to over rule it . If Cifuentes`ordering off for the small tap on the Dundee player was upheld then this one was always going to be the same. We should be okay for the next two games without him, take it on the chin and move on. No offence to the " qualified ref" who thought it was a red, we are watching qualified Grade 1 refs getting decisions badly wrong every week throughout the league, not something to boast about mate.

22.) 09 Feb 2024 15:05:38
I said i didn't think it was a red wsl, if that was aimed at me. What i said was in real time I can see why ref thought it was, I also said I was surprised it wasn't downgraded when ref had chance to see it again on monitor.

23.) 09 Feb 2024 15:45:57
Sorry but if that's anyone on a rangers player your all calling red card.

24.) 13 Feb 2024 14:12:11
I'm honestly not!

14 May 2024 22:22:48
Listening on radio all commentators mentioned that all of our forwards want too many touches before trying a shot at goal, not just dessers, is that just the pressure of the shirt, or lack of confidence in themselves? Hopefully something big Phil has noticed, and can work on.




28 Apr 2024 15:35:47
Could have been a couple down in the first few minutes again, why do we start games so badly? Again at start of the second half, what is the matter with them?!


1.) 28 apr 2024 18:02:43
because we have tav as a defender, he gets flummoxed if the ball is aimed at him.

2.) 28 Apr 2024 18:48:14
To be honest and fair TT12, it's much more than tav to blame for our defensive frailties mate ?.



18 Apr 2024 15:02:32
Fast attacking teams with aggressive midfielders scare defences to death. We don't have any of that with our slow sideways training game pace, and it obviously plays into every oppositions teams hands. That, coupled with our slow defence dealing with breakaways is awful to watch. Big Phil certainly has a job on his hands to sort this out!


1.) 18 Apr 2024 19:16:02
Scottd - Coupled with your comments also another great night of set piece rubbish too - especially from corners usually taken by "ma baw Tavernier" - from rhs Tav outswingers which troubled no one - then from LHS Tavs with inswingers - on whole think Goldson won one header which was cleared - we have so many corners but never take advantage- same for last half dozen games - its pathetic!
Wonder what big PC gets them to work on at set pieces?



16 Apr 2024 13:11:29
The game's on then at the dundee aquadome, let's hope we see a massive reaction after Sunday?!


1.) 16 Apr 2024 16:49:54
I live North of Dundee, and we've just had a huge downpour, prediction, it won't take much to make that swimming pool unplayable again, decision, match will the go to Thursday in Perth, although they have said it won't now be Perth.



10 Apr 2024 16:55:30
This is getting more ridiculous by the week. Should we be awarded the three points? A certain other club were awarded a league title by the spfl without any bother!


1.) 10 Apr 2024 19:42:03
No we shouldn’t.

2.) 10 Apr 2024 22:41:29
The issue is the incompetence of Dundee FC and its Executive Management Team. It is up to the SPFL to issue sanctions.
A fine and an ultimatum that if their pitch is not to the required standard before the start of next season then they are relegated to the Championship. (or are they still receiving favours for the lost vote)!

3.) 10 Apr 2024 22:56:28
No we should not Scotty dog. I don’t want this title to be perceived by them as tainted when we win it.

4.) 11 Apr 2024 18:52:40
1872, I agree.

I would hope that butland has more about him, to think playing in relegation battles at forest, would get him in the England squad.

I could not imagine butland wanting to move to forest, at any price. He turned down more money at utd to sit on the bench, than forest could afford to pay!

28 Jan 2024 18:30:34
Butland could probably earn more at forest, but he turned down more money to come to ibrox. At his age he wants the chance to win trophies and I couldn't see him wanting to play in a struggling forest team, no chance of trophies, no Europe either. I cannot see him ever wanting to join a club in their position.

The club are hardly likely to announce anything until there's something definite in place, are they? We'll all just have to wait and see if anything develops either way.

They attack at pace, have runners into spaces, where we dither in midfield and always look like we have 4 or 5 players less than the opposition. Let's just hope big Phil now gets the board's backing this summer!

22 May 2024 18:44:52
We cannot continue with relying on one striker to score goals, all attacking players should be getting double figures, and if tav does stay, then his goals would be an added bonus, instead of a necessity!

Stevieg2 we don't have players to play any other way. Most were signed for beale's " possession " football that doesn't work in Scotland. We need pace and quick thinkers.
