Scott Allan signing for us in the summer.


1.) 20 Nov 2018 10:27:40
He’s not a bad wee player, obviously he will get a bit of stick for signing with them over us and putting in a nasty challenge on Rossiter during his loan at hibs, but back when he moved hibs didn’t want to sell to us and as a footballer u need to make as much money as possible whilst still in the game as it’s not generally a life long career. I have no doubt he’s made a bit of money bouncing about on loan. I personally wouldn’t hold it against him and I think he could be a good player and hopefully not cost too much.

2.) 20 Nov 2018 10:35:18
Why? We already have better players👍.

3.) 20 Nov 2018 10:44:24

4.) 20 Nov 2018 11:09:52
No thanks.

5.) 20 Nov 2018 11:11:04
Just the way things have panned out i for 1 woukd not want him at the club. BUT we don't have a better number 10 currently. He can link play to forwards very well. He can thread the ball through a needle. Still a massive NO for me tho.

6.) 20 Nov 2018 12:09:00
F**k him, he had his chance and said no so we should be saying no to him, can't stand him and I think we can get better. I don't have anyone in mind but he ain't that special so it really shouldn't be that difficult to get someone who is just as good if not better.

7.) 20 Nov 2018 12:41:35
Absolutely no chance, zero, zilch, none!
He is pants! Would have done us a turn at the time of interest but he would have been one of the first out the door at the beginning of the Gerrard era!

8.) 20 Nov 2018 14:17:32
I think he is a good player but he had his chance and that's as far as it goes for me at least.



12 Nov 2018 19:01:54
Great to see the boy Bates drafted into the full Scotland squad. The boy has a big future and understand SG would have liked to to have been offered a proper contract and resigned at Ibrox.


1.) 13 Nov 2018 11:42:49
I did say at the time the lad was one for the future, all he wanted was £7k a week. We offered £2.5k a week, while paying Pena and his pals over £15k.

2.) 13 Nov 2018 14:48:44
Rangers never offered bates a new contract that's why he left.

3.) 13 Nov 2018 16:53:32
If I can remember Bates himself said in the papers he knocked back our deal. This was before SG came in and I bet SG would have loved to have worked with the lad. If as you say ger forever, we never offered him a contract then that's criminal on our part.

4.) 14 Nov 2018 10:22:47
Bates knocked back our offer as he wanted 7k, not worth that.

5.) 15 Nov 2018 14:51:29
Jboy21, based on his rate of progress and potential £7k a week would have been great piece of business. Afraid this this is one that Mark Allen got badly wrong.



29 Jul 2018 15:34:50
SG was disappointed we let the boy Bates get away to Hamburg. He rated his potential as a no nonsense CB and would have been happy for him to have remained as squad member and backup. Apparently McLeish gave Bates a good review.


1.) 29 Jul 2018 17:31:39
I believe Bates would of came good under Gerrard, he showed good potential at times. I think Rangers should have done more to keep him. Apparently he's doing really well.

2.) 29 Jul 2018 17:54:42
He is doing really well.

3.) 29 Jul 2018 19:02:07
Sorry to see Batesy go but it was his decision at the time and going by the posts he got on here. he was a bit of a bomb scare at times . brilliant too but awful at times too
Good luck cutesy . a good lad without a doubt.

4.) 29 Jul 2018 19:04:34
Bates chose to go, u play for the club not the manager Tough.

5.) 29 Jul 2018 19:25:15
Bates simply didn't want to be a Rangers player any more, so however well or otherwise he is doing, whatever nonsense we believe that SG was 'disappointed' he left, the truth is it has nothing to do with Rangers. He's gone, he's nothing to us.

6.) 29 Jul 2018 19:47:58
Agree with the last two posts - he chose to ditch us and we got no cash for him after he rejected a new deal into the bargain. He's not one of us and can stay well away.

7.) 29 Jul 2018 20:04:20
Hey Molsgoals. you like a bit of big ginger action do you? Each to their own pal. I won't judge you, "cutesy".

8.) 29 Jul 2018 21:40:00
Haha blue belter mate.

9.) 29 Jul 2018 22:18:59
I can't understand why people are bitter about a player leaving. We signed him for practically nothing and tried to develop him. We waited until the last minute to offer him a new deal and at the end of the day he exercised his right to see what else was out there and ultimately moved on. He owed us nothing so can't understand the distain.

If our club's hierarchy wanted him to stay they would have offered him a better deal and one earlier than they did.

I hope the lad goes on to have a good career and you never know he might come back a better player.

Would rather him than the rats that's for sure!

10.) 29 Jul 2018 22:26:12
Ha brilliant blue. predictive text am afraid
Really need to double check these posts before hitting reply. getting myself in an awful lot of bother but if you want I can still call you cutesy
If it tickles your fancy 😘😂.

11.) 30 Jul 2018 07:58:23
Nice one Mols. You can call me what you like, but keep your fingers off my fancy!



02 Apr 2018 21:32:41
Anybody know severity of Windass injury and if he will be out this weekend and possibly semi final?


1.) 02 Apr 2018 21:59:11
Hope not

2.) 02 Apr 2018 22:15:30
Hopefully lol. all jokes aside I like him when he's in the game but its not often enough for me.

Think Dorrans should get a run behind the striker or even better strikers and bring Windass on when the opposition legs start to go

Really think we need to be comfortable playing in a few formations, we're far too predictable.

Think for teams sitting behind the ball, we could play a flat back 4 3 cm dorrans and murphy central behind morelos or cummings

Pack the mf with runners into the box

3.) 02 Apr 2018 23:06:23
Totally agree Camoo. Most Windass fans agree that he only turns up for 15mins a game so why not make him impact sub. It would allow either Dozza to play his natural no.10 role or Cumdog a chance to form a partnership with el Buffalo.

4.) 03 Apr 2018 00:26:40
We will not play two up top against Celtic leaves us to open in midfield and they would over run us, for me Cummings is over rated don’t see the clamber to get him in the team

5.) 03 Apr 2018 15:32:38
thinkaboutit, don’t you think Morales is maybe overrated?

6.) 03 Apr 2018 17:11:26
If murty is keeping the same formation he has been playing we would be better suited with Murphy behind Morelos and have Cummings out wide coming in to support the same as he did v Falkirk! Murphy isn’t going to hide the way windass does and would offer us more imo

7.) 03 Apr 2018 18:50:19
Slight difference with Celtic n Falkirk

8.) 03 Apr 2018 19:22:23
When Celtic had a centre half at right back the last time it’s what he should have done! Cummings will get into the box from wide Murphy and Candeias don’t, Celtic don’t have a right back that will push our wide men back like tierney does on the left so it doesn’t matter if it’s celtic or Falkirk it’s about knowing the game and having a go!

9.) 03 Apr 2018 20:32:51
Yately 1
I think he is the best front man we have he is going through a lean spell as all strikers do, his work rate hasn’t dropped he brings the team up the park, he gave the Celtic defence a hard time and his miss in that game is the only thing people think about but I watched Ally miss some sitters but he came back and got goals, I feel he needs a goal just to get him going again he’s young and I TrueType think all the transfer talk has affected him but he’d be in my team

10.) 04 Apr 2018 07:04:09
If fit I’d play mcrorie cntr mid with doc as we need some more physicality in there and someone to make tackles - we are too easily bullied in middle of the park and at times on sat first 20mins we were over run

I’d also move dorrans further fwd to replace josh in the no 10 role to get up and support the striker but he can also drop back into midfield to help out when we don’t have ball

Anyone else think it’s strange fredo was scoring a lot of his goals when miller was up beside him.

just saying

11.) 04 Apr 2018 13:52:44
Nope trev no7,i would want ross mccrorie played in his more natural centre half position! Its good in times of injuries, that young mccrorie can be deployed as a defensive midfielder but he's first and foremost a centre half, in my eyes anyway!



05 Mar 2018 19:55:58
Anybody got details on opposition for tomorrow's closed door game. Understand Wallace getting run out.


1.) 05 Mar 2018 20:25:45
Celtic, might as well make it three wins on the bounce 😉

2.) 06 Mar 2018 11:38:23
St Mirren from what I’ve heard.

3.) 06 Mar 2018 12:48:43
I heard st Mirren also

Would like to see Ross McCrorie given an opportunity at right back. He has good pace and is a natural defender. Would also provide hieght and physicality when dendending corners and set pieces.


1.) 10 Nov 2018 10:42:50
His lack of pace would find him out in that position.

2.) 10 Nov 2018 11:14:43
He has never shown this before.
He is ok in front of the defence but a liability in the back line -mind you so is Goldston recently.

3.) 10 Nov 2018 12:19:39
Goldson is way and far the best centre half we have at rangers! Goldson has been superb for us except for 2 or 3 games! Give the guy a break!

4.) 10 Nov 2018 13:16:09
U watched many matches DEEB? if the rest of the team were as consistent as Goldson we would be top of the league far and away our best player. Unfortunately Mccrorie probably isn’t good enough for anything other than what he is now and that’s a sub.

5.) 10 Nov 2018 13:47:31
I think if McCrorie was playing regular he would improve. If things don’t get better for him he may have to leave club which would be a pity as we don’t have a great record of bringing through young players.

6.) 10 Nov 2018 14:24:59
Can’t think of to many players we haven’t brought through to the 1st team that left us and succeeded somewhere else. People on here used to go on about Charlie telfer and more recently Ryan hardie they obviously were not good enough, if your good enough you will break into 1st team, I’d say the only youngster we have had recently who was a quality player was the kid Brentford got of us for a steal and obviously billy Gilmour who probably would of played games this season. I have to say Mccrorie never stood out for me but I hope I’m proved wrong.

7.) 10 Nov 2018 14:31:40
I agree with Arthur maybe even end up going out on loan. I think he's best at being a midfield stopper type but I think he could do a turn at right back.



08 Nov 2018 17:03:16
Katic returns to team tonight. Also Coulibaly plays at expense of Jack, and Middleton replaces Kent.


1.) 08 Nov 2018 17:25:55
Very limited attacking options from bench.

2.) 08 Nov 2018 17:32:24
Bankie. I'm slightly disappointed that Jack has been dropped to the bench in favour of out-of-form Coulibaly. Good to see Middleton getting a start though. Come on lads grab all three points tonight!



16 Oct 2018 19:21:50
Watching live coverage of scotland v england U21s. Solanka playing for England does not look anything special and the ginger Maldini has him under control.


1.) 17 Oct 2018 16:46:49
What was the Score?



13 Oct 2018 13:02:37
The Ginger Maldini receiving excellent reviews with both U21s and in the league.


1.) 14 Oct 2018 04:11:21
Who cares now he don't play for us. And was terrible for us. not as good as Goldson katic ir worral so wouldn't be anywhere near our 1st 11.

2.) 14 Oct 2018 07:11:16
I really don’t know why people go on about him he was rank rotten. Who cares how he is doing now he has left us and we have better defenders now.



13 Oct 2018 10:05:19
Great to hear the boy Docherty has his sights firmly set on making a successful return to Ibrox. Can see him being central figure in team next season.

Think he is still a Norwich player, only on loan at Hearts. Believe contract with Norwich up in June.

Bit of a rush to judgement here. The boy has been spoken to and predict he will come good with SG’s support.

Some on here need to get a grip. We are both Scottish and British and all of our eligible Scottish players should dream and target playing for Scitland.

True to life then, he is an absolute numpty. Clearly bitter at being shown the door. Great but if business to get £2.5m for him.

Hope we stick with Goldson tomorrow. He and Flanagan were poor on Thursday and largely responsible for losing the match, but want him to have opportunity to redeem himself against Motherwell.
