Rangers FC Rumours


Use our rumours form to send us rangers transfer rumours.

(single word yields best result)

01 Dec 2023 13:49:21
Is there any news on a DOF?

I've read various rumours but with 4 weeks before a fairly important transfer window for outgoings and incoming, I'm concerned that there is no move on this.


01 Dec 2023 16:25:04
After the sheep on the weekend and last nights display i doubt anyone decent would want the job.

01 Dec 2023 16:31:56
Nils Koppen.

01 Dec 2023 16:32:35
Just been confirmed lol.

01 Dec 2023 16:34:01
Announcements today.

01 Dec 2023 16:35:13
Nils Koppen from PSV.

01 Dec 2023 16:38:28
Koppen just announced.

01 Dec 2023 16:41:29
Just announced. Nils Koppen from PSV Eindhoven as Director of Football Recruitment, subject to receipt of a work permit.

01 Dec 2023 16:41:57
Nils koppen, previous of psv.

Done deal.

01 Dec 2023 16:44:57
Yes there is word. good timing this post haha.

01 Dec 2023 17:19:46
Great to see a dof appointment, we r keeping some very key issues well under radar, well done the board.

01 Dec 2023 17:20:56
Tom Taylor of B+HA is head of performance.

01 Dec 2023 17:33:50
Aye, no one will take a huge job like rangers dof because of two draws ?.

01 Dec 2023 17:55:23
Re appointment of dof, I’m not sure he is a direct replacement for our previous DoF Wilson

Rangers have given him title of Director of Football Recruitment, he was part of the scouting team at PSV.
He worked under a Chief of Scouting, who then reported to a Director of Football

Rangers do state his appointment competes recruitment to our football board.
Also that he is responsible for revamping auchenhowie, recruitment, contracts.

I wish him all the best and look forward to see who we target.

01 Dec 2023 19:40:02
Good news, hopefully uses the dutch and Belgian markets instead of lower England. Is there any update on the Graeme Souness situation anyone?

01 Dec 2023 19:52:19
John, can we assume we've split Wilson's role between the two announced today then?

01 Dec 2023 21:25:43
Sir Walter. Taylor totally different role from anything Wilson done.

Looks like DoF recruitment has a different terms of reference from Wilson

Mb let’s him concentrate on first team and academy.

28 Nov 2023 10:32:14
Being told today from my source both Dowell and Sterling want to return to England.

Defo interest for both from championship.


28 Nov 2023 11:31:49

28 Nov 2023 11:32:05
Understandable regarding Sterling, as he's not going to take Tav's place.

Shame about Dowell though, he looked good at Norwich the few times I saw him and I thought he was going to be a bit of a dark horse for us, but seeing Lammers start before him I understand if he wanted to leave.

On a positive, in on a free, sold for a fee.

28 Nov 2023 11:33:28
Sounds about right. Both have made nil impact.
I am sure PC has seen their levels in training. Again makes you wonder about our scouting system and how these signing decisions were made. Need to make sure we cover our costs on these deals.

28 Nov 2023 11:50:44
Shame neither have been able to show much so far, liked the look of Dowell before he came. I don't think they would be much loss. What we think we could get for them 1-2m each?

28 Nov 2023 11:51:52
Did Beale about not say dowell was going be a quality signing? Deary me that guy gets some amount wrong on here.

28 Nov 2023 12:00:21
Both done nothing. Rarely given a chance granted.

28 Nov 2023 12:03:59
Not surprised John.
Why would they want to be here when they could be near home and actually playing football.

Will save us a few quid also, so win win imo.

28 Nov 2023 12:11:10
Hopefully. 40k a week between them for nothing.

28 Nov 2023 12:12:00
actually forgot dowell was at rangers, has he been out injured?

28 Nov 2023 12:29:10
56 cc Dowell is quality just very unlucky with injury.

28 Nov 2023 12:42:25
Is dowell injured? I’d imagine that would be a big saving wage wise. How much would we sell for?

28 Nov 2023 12:51:49
Will save us nearly 2 million a season in salary if we move them on.

28 Nov 2023 12:54:07
They are wanting to leave because they are not getting a game? that's a joke. Dowell started pre season recovering from an injury and then was out for weeks with another one . We would all like to see him start in front of Lammers but he has to be fit to do that. Sterling is another one who missed large parts of pre season with an injury and has had another couple since then. When we looked to him for the away game in Prague, guess what, he was injured. Maybe not their fault that they get injured but its a bit much if they want to go because of lack of game time. More likely Clement has made it clear he doesn`t fancy them . They`ll be no great loss because they have done nothing and the wages can be invested elsewhere. Just another two of Beales broken toys .

28 Nov 2023 14:17:36
As both aren’t really featuring in the team. It would be best for all parties if they were sold and monies can be put towards One or Two loan players or a permanent player.

28 Nov 2023 14:20:44
There were a couple of us on here who posted about Dowell's injury record, and how much of a risk he was.

28 Nov 2023 14:24:21
You did that raisetheroof, but in my eyes his quality is there mate.

28 Nov 2023 14:25:54
Both fall into the category of injury prone. Get rid ASAP. Regardless of ability i have no time for that anymore. On a side note we could sign kyle walker and tav would still play every min of every game.

28 Nov 2023 14:26:44
Coldo what you get correct on here? all you do is pull others up.

28 Nov 2023 14:31:50
Well both will have cost us about half a mill each by time January comes.
Then if they got signing in fees due to being frees.

Then i'd be asking £1m each just to quickly move them on.
Don’t think we’d get anymore than that for dowel as he’s always injured, Sterling we may get a 10% in there aswell.

28 Nov 2023 14:48:36
Can they be sold in January I thought they had to stay a year maybe I have that wrong, so you can't buy then sell right away, would the option to loan then by get round the two clubs in a year rule? Sorry again I may have that concept wrong.

28 Nov 2023 14:59:05
GJD you can buy someone and sell them the next day if you want.

28 Nov 2023 15:24:27
Gjd can definitely sell them

My star who is coldo this week.

28 Nov 2023 15:33:05
Thanks for sharing John. If they want to go, let them go and hopefully we get a small fee and sell-on clause for them. I think it was StevieG2 who said that it’s a shame we didn’t sign Max Johnston instead of Sterling and I tend to agree.

28 Nov 2023 16:07:33
GJD83 the new rule is 16 weeks.

28 Nov 2023 16:11:24
Dowell has been a massive let down he can't even make Sundays squad when we're missing other midfielders, says it all.

28 Nov 2023 16:24:57
56 clement, John, can spot him a mile away.

28 Nov 2023 16:33:08
My star, what was it I said about Norwich fans not seeing much of him due to injury and you telling me I didn't know anything ?

Quality signing eh!

28 Nov 2023 16:33:55
Whoever signed that pair ought to be fired, oh forgot he already has ?.

28 Nov 2023 17:00:07
Nobody will buy Dowell he's permanently injured. Also Sterling is in the Euro squad and I think only 3 changes after the group stage allowed.

28 Nov 2023 17:09:12
if the manager is not going to play them, then move them on, even getting their
fees back and wages saved is a bonus.

28 Nov 2023 18:14:40
Roofe wage also around 2mill.

28 Nov 2023 18:24:54
So one change is ditch sterling, we r paying this guy one million a year.

28 Nov 2023 19:00:33
Both earning £20k a week. Money could be spent better elsewhere. We are hopeful to get a couple million each but are likely to accept loan moves in January.

28 Nov 2023 19:10:14
Why coldo and gofor having a go at my star No one ever gets everything right on here ?‍♂️ .

28 Nov 2023 19:14:43
56 Clement, given that Cantwell was excellent in the 1st half of this calendar year and that Dowell was keeping him out of the team at Norwich, is it not totally understandable that My Star would say that Dowell is going to be an excellent acquisition?

28 Nov 2023 19:34:28
Gofor i never said that to you, what i said to you was Norwich fans didn't see him when he scored many times for them last season, i said Dowell was quality and that he is, injured to often tho like raisetheroofe said at the time.

28 Nov 2023 20:13:48
These two, with a host of others need to go. we're paying a fortune in wages to players who are doing next to nothing.

28 Nov 2023 20:42:17
You are correct My star, there is quality there, just like there is with Roofe and Jack, but just like those 2, we are never going to get full value for Dowell, as he will be constantly injured. Get him, Sterling, Jack and Roofe off the wage bill, and use the circa 75k a week in wages, to bring in players who will contribute something over the full season.

28 Nov 2023 22:23:09
We trust your source john.

28 Nov 2023 22:36:01
Storm instead of debating the point he jumped to saying people are clueless.

Simple reason

And with dowell and sterling would they not need to be freed.
Thought the rule was you couldn't sell a bosman for a year after signing?

28 Nov 2023 22:37:41
Don't know if we could loan them out though? Been a while since I checked free contract signing rules.

28 Nov 2023 22:48:37
Think that will be the plan of Clement raisetheroofe.

29 Nov 2023 00:09:30
Mtystar I said Norwich fans never seen him enough due to injury and you rubbishd me.

Around about the same time I said all transfers don't work out when you were branding all signings class.

Love how you guys change your narrative to make yourself out to be right.

29 Nov 2023 00:10:20
To be fair the boy sterling has never looked happy even when he did get on.

29 Nov 2023 00:10:50
John tells us Dowell wants to leave and boom it’s in Ibrox Noise.

29 Nov 2023 01:10:06
Gofor my question was the same months ago, why couldn't they see him when he scored many goals for them? that doesn't make sense to me. again Dowell is very unlucky with injuries but i see him as quality footballer, Gofor i probably wasn't saying you were clueless on this, just in general you post many things i don't understand mate.

29 Nov 2023 03:34:09
I will be honest I thought dowell would of been a player for us but as usual I am wrong ?.

29 Nov 2023 10:42:00
G4 I’ve long said these clickbait sites take info from here,

RFC I agree with you re dowell.

29 Nov 2023 11:32:48
My star he is usually like this with me he makes things up in his head.

29 Nov 2023 11:54:49
Good! I said at the time neither were good enough, especially Dowell who some claimed would be in the starting 11 because he’s left footed haha! Mediocre signings by a mediocre manager! Sterling 20k a week to do nothing!

29 Nov 2023 15:40:07
Mystar, you had a spell of calling people clueless for quite a while all be it your name was Beale65 at the time.

29 Nov 2023 17:36:50
Just three gofo you, Andy because i feel that's what he is, Coldo under many different names 100% yes, I'm really don't understand many of your post or what their even getting at mate, can't just be me.

29 Nov 2023 17:45:55
I made one error with you storm and I did apologise afterwards

But hey men don't usually drag something up once another man has made an apology but maybe that's my bad for thinking an apology is the end of something eh!

30 Nov 2023 00:14:39
Mystar ok so if I was cluess and said I was worried about signing another injury prone player and all signings were not class and it never works out for them all.

Then how does that make me clueless

From what we've seen so far I was 100% correct

Or should I address the response to Beale65 ?.

30 Nov 2023 07:46:16
Gofor Kieran dowell at Norwich had one significant injury that ruled him out for 19 games he was hardly injury prone. I’m a Norwich fan so correct me if I’m wrong.

30 Nov 2023 09:03:42
Gofor what are you even talking about today? as said can't work some of the posts you put up, Beale 56 go for it gofor, no sense again.

30 Nov 2023 09:05:01
Injury prone gofor?

30 Nov 2023 17:56:31
Apologise for? You have lost me mate I forget half the stuff that goes on in here ? I wasn’t meaning anything bad by it ?.

30 Nov 2023 17:58:19
Forgot to say you never need to apologise to me gofor.

30 Nov 2023 21:46:18
Storm if I get it wrong and attribute someone's post to wrong guy i admit an say sorry just way I am.

Mystar we all know you were Beale65

You never admit when your wrong.

30 Nov 2023 22:18:39
None of these players are going to win us the league, if we can get some money for them then let them go and let's try and recoup the fee we paid for Dessers and Lammers. They are not the answer.
If there is a swap deal to be done Cifuentes for Sima then let's get that done as well and let's see if we can get rid of some of the others that will leave at the end of the season.
Right now we need a centre back, possibly a left back, a quality holding midfield player and a striker that can score goals.
We need to start signing winners, players with fight and a never say die attitude. We desperately need a DoF and for me it's time that our Chief Scout was shown the door. Other than Butland we haven't signed one true quality player while he has been in charge of scouting!

30 Nov 2023 23:03:25
Gofor obviously everyone know i changed my name as posted it, what i am wrong on?

01 Dec 2023 14:06:36
Dowell didn't score many times for Norwich last season, he scored 5 times ? nowhere near good enough, most people po8nted out it was a strange signing when it was announced.

01 Dec 2023 15:54:13
So didn't the Norwich fans see him then herewego? that makes as much sense as gofor does, strange signing you must have never seen him play then.

01 Dec 2023 19:54:35
I said they didn't see him enough mystar not that they didn't see him.

And has it not been the same for us?

And funny how you never answer direct question or point always try skirf around it.

You were wrong simple as that.

At least be big enough to admit it.

02 Dec 2023 06:44:00
Gofor pointless post once again, what i said about Dowell was he is quality, because he is injured does that take away his quality as a footballer? no sense again you've got a habit of this mate.

02 Dec 2023 14:43:12
Also can't figure out how the Norwich fans never seen him, he was in the squad over 100 games in his three season gofor, so another senseless point to me.

27 Nov 2023 20:21:22
Mcausland deal done.


27 Nov 2023 22:31:57
Good news hope they still play him or at least get him a good loan move.

28 Nov 2023 07:37:18
Can't see us sending him on loan. He'll play parts in many games, probably start a few if he keeps on improving.

28 Nov 2023 07:43:04
Why would he go on loan when he’s almost a stick on to start or appear in most games now?

28 Nov 2023 09:28:52
Good now let’s get him in the starting 11 from now until Jan and see if we need to bring in a winger or not. Cantwell is a waste of a jersey out there.

28 Nov 2023 09:41:40
Being told Lovelace has been offered new significant deal, on his 18 birthday, good news, massive interest from England in him and Archie stevens.

28 Nov 2023 09:48:38
Have said for weeks, Cantwell is carrying an injury. Probs taking injections. The lad has lost at least a yard of pace and not influencing games in any way.

28 Nov 2023 14:26:59
Cantwell is way off the player he was turning into end of last season.
He did have an injury, and may well still be the case?
personally when fully fit, i would play him in the 10 role, not out wide, and tell him to shoot for the goal every chance he gets, if the hagi sale in in fact a rumour, i would like us to get him back in Jan and rotate him and Cantwell in the 10 position, where both are capable of scoring goals and cutting defences open with there passing intelligence.

Matondo and Lawrence rotating as LW
Sima and Mcausland rotating as RW
Danilo i'd play every game as main striker, like we have been lately, but we need another clinical finisher, especially with us quilifying for the next stage in the Europa competition, which i believe we will after the Aris game.

hopefully Phillipe Clement has his eye on at least 1 more talented finisher, RB and CB, one of them no doubt from the belgian premier league, where PC has solid contacts and excellent knowledge of that league.

28 Nov 2023 16:35:43
It all depends on Clement and clubs intentions

Do you not remember Lowry being in the same position getting games then new deal and hey presto back in reserves.

All I 2ant is the best for the lad. Obviously the ideal is to play week in week out at rangers but as Clement is big on wingers, he might want to bring his own in.

28 Nov 2023 16:38:18
Cantwells problem like many of the other English is the fire themselves up too much and end up rushing about without clear aim cantwell is always trying his best I'd start him every game still not 100% on his best position

Nobody can deny he has best work rate of any player in our team.

28 Nov 2023 19:11:19
Cantwell ain’t taking injections and he is getting played out of position he is a 10.

28 Nov 2023 22:39:40
I tend to agree storm.

29 Nov 2023 16:33:17
Storm my info cantwell has not taken a jag since Celtic game.

30 Nov 2023 12:10:28

Maybe squad but definitely not team. Maybe added to squad as interim. Not a disaster.

25 Nov 2023 20:53:17
Guys were talking in work about us possibly getting Patterson back in January for next to nothing. Something to do with Everton not being able to afford the remainder of the fee. Anyone got any info about this?
Also hearing we are currently looking at at least 4 younger players from Scotland. 2 for 1st team and 2 for academy.


25 Nov 2023 21:05:49
Won't happen. They can sell him to fund the rest if needed. He's also starting every game.

25 Nov 2023 21:50:24
It’s never going to happen.

26 Nov 2023 00:04:06
We need to be going for Miller from Motherwell, Barron from Aberdeen, and Shankland from Hearts. Shankland obviously older but a no brained. Try to shift Dessers and Lammers at some point. Roofe won’t stay on.

26 Nov 2023 03:44:02
22 year old that players regularly as a starting rb in the premier league he would prob go for over £25million now no chance sadly.

26 Nov 2023 06:54:03
Ashley young start at RB for Everton he never gets a game.

26 Nov 2023 08:01:13
I would hope we definitely go for barron of aberdeen and lennon miller of motherwell ?Two future cracking young players for us ???.

26 Nov 2023 11:07:20
Sorry but that's just daft.

26 Nov 2023 11:29:08
Would like Campbell from hibs as well, but can't sign all three. Barron would be my first choice.

26 Nov 2023 12:54:30
Walter spurs have offered two million for miller, we ain’t paying that.

26 Nov 2023 14:59:55
Why would Patterson come back to use. He is one of the best up and coming full backs in the EPL. He has a number of teams interested in him.
Right now, we are a mediocre team, playing in a poor league and it doesn't look like changing anytime soon!

26 Nov 2023 15:24:53
Patterson is far too injury prone sadly. Plays well then out. Glad we sold when we did tbh, wasnt long after that he was out for months.

26 Nov 2023 16:15:11
I do t think it’s as simple as it looks. Everton have breached their contract with us.

26 Nov 2023 16:31:21
Everton will sell Patterson if they have to and they will pay the outstanding monies owed to us. That of course assumes that Everton do not win their appeal and have the points deduction at least reduced. If you actually follow this one then you will find that given that they were supposed to be working with them, the English FA need to carry some of the blame for allowing Everton to sign players that would have brought them over the debt limit.
We should also expect to see action taken against at least Chelsea and Manchester City, (on paper at least they appear to have been more guilty than Everton and what about Manchester United given their current debt mountain.

26 Nov 2023 18:09:52
Barron on a free from Aberdeen would be a good deal… I’d also like to be looking at Kai fortheringham from dufc aswell….

26 Nov 2023 17:26:18
Unbeillever, how have they breached their contract with rangers.

26 Nov 2023 17:34:42
Man city have over 100 charges and being going for around five years.

26 Nov 2023 17:40:49
Copland that’s just nonsense.

26 Nov 2023 20:57:28
If we are looking at Shankland, we should also be looking at Miovski. 4years younger and another who knows where the net is in our league.

27 Nov 2023 13:07:57
Current rumours i'm being told, Celtic are sniffing around Miovski,
Came from a macedonian source at work, don't be surprised if he revealed as celtics new striker in Jan window, lads way to good for aberdeen and a player that can score against us.

Next rumour i'm being told of is Kent will be back at rangers in Jan window on loan until seasons end, that comes direct from a source at rangers.
Bare in mind Clement had not denied this rumour when asked by the media. Rather he has refused to speculate on it, until it is confirmed.

3rd rumour is Hagi has been sold but that won't be revealed just yet again comes from a source at rangers.
Shame if it's true as he is starting to show his qualities again, if you didn't see his goal in the Romania v Israel game it was excellent, hardly the sign of a player with serious post injury issues.

Shoot me down all you want, it is a rumour site after all, i'm simply sharing what i have been told from 2 different sources, 1 a direct relative of Miovski's here in Australia that i work with.
He claims the MIovski deal is done, but won't be revealed until jan, Considering Aberdeen are out of europe now, with 2 games to play and no chance of qualifying, makes sense aberdeen will sell him.

The 2 other rumours, are directly from a the rangers supporters clubs contacts at Ibrox.

We will find out in January if these rumours are proven true.

27 Nov 2023 13:24:36
Need homegrown players though. Miovski is good however.

27 Nov 2023 13:52:53
Mioski is this seasons duk or van been.

27 Nov 2023 14:05:09
Patterson has played 12/ 13 league games so far.

If you're going to make something up, research it first.

27 Nov 2023 20:48:38
Laudrup, I sincerely hope that you are wrong regarding the Rangers rumours. Kent should be no where near Rangers. he had his chance and he blew it!

28 Nov 2023 09:36:53
Kent should join a track and field team, he’s good @ running about in circles.

28 Nov 2023 14:36:56
@ Azul lol i hear you mate.

Recently i watched an 8 minute long highlight of his best goals, dribbles etc, if he could find that form again most weeks, i'd take him back no problem, even if it is only on loan for 6 months.
In his best form, he can definately hurt teams in Europe and isn't shy on scoring some crackers against them.
I don't think anyone really knows the full story what spooked Kent, we could all clearly see he wasn't the player he was before, perhaps he wasn't happy after Gerard left? was it's Beale's constantly changing tactics? i honestly do not know.
Neither Kent nor Morelos are in better situations now, there is clearly reason why both chose to go and play at lower level clubs.
Morelos obviously ended up the worst off, and has barely played at all in brazil.
Would loved to have seen Danilo and Morelos (in his best form of course) cause havoc up front together, scoring for fun.

24 Nov 2023 22:46:28
Hearing a couple of bits.
Ross MacAusland set to sign 4 year deal after talks with Clement.

Mason Cotcher a real target of ours if he does not sign for Arsenal who he is currently training with. We can get him for a small compensation fee.


24 Nov 2023 22:51:30
Aye didn't read the Scott Burns piece eh.

25 Nov 2023 07:57:09
Good news on MacAusland if he does sign.

25 Nov 2023 08:28:03
Ts where does it matter where he read it?

25 Nov 2023 08:56:26
I am a big McCausland supporter, I want him to make the grade not just for Rangers sake but for NI’s sake. But he has yet to prove himself? He has only played minutes now and then, all this hype could be just that, until he plays in an extended run I would be sceptical?
I would like nothing better than for him to be a star for the Gers and his homeland.

25 Nov 2023 11:52:45
Romano saying four year deal done. Wish Ross the very best.

25 Nov 2023 12:23:34
He is a cracking wee player but I think Neil McCann needs a DNA he looks the double of him and similar direct style.

25 Nov 2023 13:11:04
I agree 100% with you carrick good post.

25 Nov 2023 13:21:59
I think tjs97 is implying the OP has just read it somewhere and come on here pretending to have been given privileged info from a good contact. I don't really care if someone gets a kick from that all info is good and we all have to accept a level of criticism on here from time to time, nobody is above that. Its not to say the the OP doesn't have a contact and he is new on here we are just used to the usual reliable posters that actually have good contacts and we all know who they are.

25 Nov 2023 14:15:39
Agbroxi absolutely nothing alike???.

25 Nov 2023 14:20:39
Good luck to young Ross, hope he kicks on and lives up to expectations. A big ask for a young lad with only a few appearances.

25 Nov 2023 14:22:49
Totally agree Paul86 ???????????.

25 Nov 2023 16:08:43
Happy we've signed the lad and he is getting gametime. We rarely give our young lads a chance. Rice is another who needs gametime to show his real quality. Think he could be a super player.

25 Nov 2023 16:30:22
PC seemed pretty upbeat regarding McAusland signing at his presser.

25 Nov 2023 19:08:30
Paul i don’t understand the comparison either.

26 Nov 2023 11:10:22
Carrick we all know this already.

But you don't let a prospect walk away for nothing just because he hasn't had a lot of minutes

Don't think anyone is saying he's a certain star.

27 Nov 2023 11:12:50
Point taken gorforbig, but I was really taking about the media hype, it could ruin the kid? I understand that no one can say who is going to be a star, I remember teams in England wouldn’t touch George Best because they said he was too small, mistake or what?

27 Nov 2023 13:09:52
Great news, he has shown some good qulaities, but we need to see more, no doubt he will end up sold like all the rest of our recent quality young players, home grown and brought in.

29 Nov 2023 22:30:45
Scott burns didn’t mention the young lad Mason cotcher nor our interest in him.
Didn’t see the Scott burns piece, was just passing on information I had been given. A new poster who is a fan of the page was just joining in the rumours I had heard. No harm done.

02 Dec 2023 15:08:32
Not sure why some posters take such a delight in trying to prove informative posters like John 227 and Star in the sky who express their honest opinions well.
I can only conclude it is based on envy, not having the same knowledge and contacts. Just enjoy their posts.

Any more word on this new DOF?


24 Nov 2023 20:55:26
Hearing the belgian guy de conde is going to be our new director of football ? Don't know when it will be announced though ?.

24 Nov 2023 21:14:14
It will be before the agm he needs to be in as soon as possible needs to get ahead of the game for the Jan transfer window.

24 Nov 2023 21:40:45
Hopefully between him and Clement they can bring in some quality players.

24 Nov 2023 22:43:33
Was it not said early doors, that it would be Janyary b4 we knew?

24 Nov 2023 23:28:14
Mark, Clement doesn't get involved with transfers. They'll be down to the new DoF alone.

25 Nov 2023 01:29:20
will be down to both he won’t get involved in the financial side etc but will definitely have a say and have some targets of his own.

25 Nov 2023 06:58:40
KF - Players will be identified and targeted - PC still has input to transfers ( knows type and who he wants for each position) but will not deal with the nitty gritty of contracts and finances - I assume that is what you implied as the whole process is not just down to DOF alone.

25 Nov 2023 11:21:04
RFC and BF, that's not how Clement and Mitchell worked at Monaco and its not how Clement worked in his earlier roles either.

At Monaco Clement worked with whatever Mitchell gave him, he did not get involved in player trading at all. He fed requirements and problems to Mitchell and it was part of Mitchell's job to buy and sell players to satisfy those needs and fix those problems. Clement had no say who the players were.

Unless the club or Clement has stated otherwise, I very much doubt Clement is going to change.

25 Nov 2023 12:24:02
I've read that about Clement Kilted, he'll tell the dof what positions he needs and let him do his stuff, seen in his games he can get players doing what they should be, Rangers do have many players with quality.

25 Nov 2023 13:00:37
KF - identifying the player you want from a group of equally talented players with similar stats is not - "getting involved in player trading" (that is the different side of the job) so you are saying PC doesn't care who he gets as long as certain criteria are met? - most managers know WHO they want assuming all correct stats are met so I would say he does have and would also expect him to have that input!

25 Nov 2023 13:12:01
Clement has actually said what kilted frog is saying in one of his interviews since he came here.

25 Nov 2023 20:00:17
Blue-Floyd, correct.

26 Nov 2023 15:34:01
Hopefully we know the positions that need filling and if we have a DoF in waiting that can't join until January that he is already aware of the options that are available. Being honest, other than goalkeeper, and possibly right back, we could do with better quality players in pretty much any position.

We will need to sell to raise funds and pretty much anyone in the squad right now that could be sold at a decent price should be available.

I just hope that the new DoF can identify better players than his predecessors. Hopefully he or she also has a better team of Scouts!

28 Nov 2023 14:43:23
Can't remember the attacker off hand, but in one of Clements recent-ish interviews, he spoke about an attacker he worked with at Club Brugge, who wasn't scoring at all, PC and his coaches there rebuilt the guys confidence got him scoring again, so regularly, he couldn't stop scoring, the player ended up in the EPL, he can definitely get the best out of most players no doubts.
That is just one example, does anyone know who the player PC was referring to, all i remember is he was a forward at Club Brugge KV.

24 Nov 2023 12:45:49
Told Rangers are making a massive effort to get Mason Cotcher signed before the turn of the year.


24 Nov 2023 13:02:48
He`s training with Arsenal at the moment . If they want him we won`t get him. Even if we do sign him, where is he going to play, our youngsters are playing competitively once a month at the moment if they are lucky . The Lowland League may not have been the answer but it was better than what we are doing now . Another mistake that I suspect that Beale was behind.

24 Nov 2023 14:06:52
Is this the lad from Sunderland u mentioned a while back Beale?

24 Nov 2023 14:23:44
Stevie that is him mate.

24 Nov 2023 14:38:14
Y star appears Sunderland have freed this player. He is training at arsenal on a one month trial, played three games for the under 18 scoring one goal.

24 Nov 2023 17:25:13
Not seen a lot of this lad but what I have seen looks like z cool customer in front of goal.

Any ideas why he is free? Seems strange Sunderland would let him go.

24 Nov 2023 18:49:35
Out of contract gofor?

24 Nov 2023 19:42:10
Gofor, he never signed a contract for them.

24 Nov 2023 20:56:12
Cotcher left Sunderland on his 17 birthday rejecting a pro contract.
He was on a scholarship due to age.

He is now eligible to sign a professional contract
17in England
16 in Scotland.

26 Nov 2023 11:13:24
Nice but maybe the lad 3xpecting to play first team games.

Either way would be worth the punt on the face of it.
