This is a serious question:

Ferguson, Brown and Rae; i have nothing to recommend them for coaching roles and the majority of posts here seem to think being an ex-Rangers man is not real recommendation. What role would any of these three guys fill that would justify a big wage?

I know they are leaders but I would rather see a modern leader emerge.


1.) 25 Mar 2017 11:51:32
Barry Ferguson was a tremendous footballer, was an inspirational leader and has Rangers at heart.

So, if he can help improve players by passing on advise and techniques that improved him as a player, get the respect of the squad like he did from his teammates when he was a player and has the best interests of our club at heart then there's no better candidate IMO.

2.) 25 Mar 2017 13:11:06
Barry has the potential to be that. The others don't for me.

3.) 25 Mar 2017 13:15:33
They won't be on a big wage so don't get yourself worried about that.

The manager wants him so that should be enough. He obviously sees a role there.

4.) 25 Mar 2017 16:00:53
we need to remember that brown was in charge of pretty succesful youth team at rangers its also been proved he has an eye for a player as it was him who scouted carlos cuellar i would put him top of my list if that's the rd we are going down

5.) 25 Mar 2017 17:35:09
I didn't think the role for a local guy was so much about coaching as a link with the players and knowledge of the league.

Pedro has his own coaching team so it is more about integration than coaching skills.

6.) 25 Mar 2017 18:15:09
I would never in my life slag or dismiss any of these guys who are pure Rangers men and had the privilege to play for the team that they and we love 💙

7.) 25 Mar 2017 19:02:32
Cuellar was spotted when we played against him in the eufa cup the season Walter smith came back.

8.) 25 Mar 2017 20:28:26
they still sent brown to scout him its a well known fact

9.) 26 Mar 2017 13:01:35
Colshygers is spot on! John bomber brown did scout carlos cuellar and after he first came to rangers attention, bomber continually watched and advised our club to sign him!

10.) 26 Mar 2017 13:02:05
Bears. I think the appointment of Brown Rae or Ferguson will be fantastic! WHO tho would be the best option? For me I would have Brown with Rae a very close 2nd. I really like Ferguson but think the others have more experience AND both would command instant respect and would be good at being able to put an arm around a players shoulder when needed, but also would be able to let a player know when they need to pull their finger out and recognise who they are playing for!

For me I think Fergie is still too young and players may not look or listen ti him in the same way. BUT I would not be disappointed if he did get it, I think Rae will get it due to his past roles but I love Brown and if he doesn't get it. I would like to see him at Ibrox in some capacity I think Brown could get an extra few percent from the players from just being around them.

11.) 26 Mar 2017 15:54:25
Are you trying to tell us Alex Rae (uncapped, played 34 games for Rangers, won one league title) would command more respect in the dressing room than Barry Ferguson (45 caps, almost 300 games for Rangers, multiple honours, MBE)?

12.) 27 Mar 2017 16:05:29
John Brown is an embarrassment and shouldn't even be allowed in ibrox. Let him stand on the stairs.

{Ed033's Note - and let him eat cake 😋



13 Mar 2017 10:36:35
Is Pedro, Pedro's pal or his agent?
I did not see mention of this connection in any of the Scottish papers or radio in the weeks leading up to his appointment. Wouldn't a decent journalist not have found this out and had a guess at who the new manager might be?


1.) 13 Mar 2017 11:13:36
Pedro Mendes is his agent apparently.

2.) 13 Mar 2017 13:07:49
Deeb this is a positive thing having mendes as his agent so no scottish paper would have published this only thing they want is negative stories about our club and manager

3.) 13 Mar 2017 14:40:44
That would have actually taken some effort and decent investigative journalism. Not the usual sensationalist lazy crap we have in our rags!



28 Jun 2016 13:10:17
Who is the NI star we are after? According to the DR.
Cant see a name.


1.) 28 Jun 2016 15:20:59
Lee Hodson apparently.



18 May 2016 15:54:06
Been told by a non football fan involved marketing business that Underarmour are waiting in the wings and likely to be offering some advice re contracts.
Any one heard similar?


1.) 18 May 2016 17:43:38
no, but if true, would be amazing.

2.) 18 May 2016 18:36:50
does terminating the contracts mean that the puma deal is also terminated? therefore those new kits will not be next seasons?

3.) 18 May 2016 18:58:56
Underarmour would be perfect. Good quality sportswear and a quality Sports Goods Company. Could be some truth in this. They are the suppliers of Spurs' kits and we appear to be developing a really strong relationship with the North London Clubs.

4.) 18 May 2016 20:32:42
The Puma deal will carry on as we are not in dispute with them. If and when the Puma deal finishes Rangers will have a few people at the door offering us a great deal, of that l am sure.

5.) 18 May 2016 20:38:23
I believe any sports direct deal has nothing to do with Puma so will carry on as normal, but been told we only have a year left to run with them and Red 32
Anyone else clarify this?

6.) 19 May 2016 00:21:37
Deeb i was just reading about our club refusing to wear the new strip on cup duty at the weekend, king must know if ashley tries to alter things now he is admiting his involvment in dual ownership, and that's not allowed, mr king has obviously waited until the right time to pull this stunt, let's wait and see ashleys next move in this game of chess.

7.) 19 May 2016 10:40:34
The SD Puma deal can still be linked as it was the same people inside Rangers that signed both. Termination was going to happen even before Newcastle got relegated but I agree it has probably moved things along faster. It depends on what grounds Rangers wish to follow when/ if terminating the deal. It's likely that some kind of pay off agreement would be reached to avoid court action and as Puma are bound to be disappointed by how little money the deal with Rangers has made them, they would be unlikely to be difficult to work with.



06 Apr 2016 12:26:36
I have a mate down south who reckons he has seen a photo of Harry Forrester as a kid in a Rangers top, anyone confirm this?


1.) 06 Apr 2016 13:14:56
Harry can.

2.) 06 Apr 2016 13:39:27
Yes, Harry posted a pic of him in the 95/ 96 home kit on Social Media when he first signed.

at this moment, who is the best between MacGregor and Wes?


1.) 26 May 2017 17:07:02
Well wes is our player and McGreggor is now irrelivant so there's yer answer

2.) 26 May 2017 18:13:59
That's a tough one, Mcgregor was good for us and he shags ten birds a night but I'll stick by Wes. 👍

3.) 26 May 2017 19:24:38
Shagger was 10 times the keeper Wes is

4.) 26 May 2017 19:30:49
McGregor easy

5.) 26 May 2017 19:31:12
Pity he was such a dick though

6.) 26 May 2017 20:20:51
shagger all day long

sorry bears i think wes had dodged most of the flak flying about this season that both managers and other players have all copped

he's a decent shot stopper but doesn't come off his line doesn't command his box and some of the goals he losses are unacceptable. i know the defence in front of him has been poor but top class keeper - sorry i just don't see it

7.) 26 May 2017 20:22:49
Is this a serious question Wes is gash get a grip

8.) 26 May 2017 21:20:01
McGregor all day long, I'm not saying wes is bad but shagger was top top class on his day, in another note living in and watching Fleetwood in league one down here I've seen a bit if jak alnwick and really hope he gets the chance he deserves as I honestly think he could be giving Fod a bit of fight for the number 1 spot, just my opinion but very good keeper who should have been playing much higher than league 1

9.) 26 May 2017 21:40:35
Correct FleetwoodBear, on his day. I can recall many days where he must have been recovering from his offfield pursuits. I'll stick with Wes.

10.) 28 May 2017 06:58:24
Just from the 90mins he played the other day you could see that young Alnwick is more of the complete package. He actually came out for the ball. handles all crosses and helped out his defense too.

11.) 28 May 2017 10:17:49
He wants to come back



29 Dec 2016 16:57:52
Can Senderos be worse than Tiernan?
Not solely based on last night.


1.) 29 Dec 2016 17:28:36
No. kiernan u mean lol.

2.) 30 Dec 2016 10:28:04
The sad answer is Yes. It is not just our centre backs that are the problem. When you have players of the standard of Holt and Halliday in front of them even John Terry would struggle!

3.) 30 Dec 2016 11:03:14
Kiernan isn't as bad as you all make out. Give the lad a chance and he might surprise you.

4.) 30 Dec 2016 15:40:36
Problem is, GFraser, that with the midfield that we have at present he won't get the chance. He will be left unsupported week in week out. That will continue until we are in a position to replace Halliday and Holt!



21 Sep 2016 14:43:51
Could making Halliday the captain last night have been a way of sending a message to Barton?


1.) 21 Sep 2016 16:48:00
I said that earlier and everyone disagreed.

2.) 21 Sep 2016 19:36:29
Yes, and its beyond pathetic.

When two employees argue a manager is supposed to intervene in a fair, impartial and balanced manner.

Not give one the captaincy (even though it's just for a game) and force the other out the club.

A very clear message has been sent to Barton- you aren't wanted or needed.

Another message was Warburton making a point of not saying that after the suspension Barton would be back and we would move on.

3.) 22 Sep 2016 12:57:58
Said before and will again. The Barton incident poorly handled by a manager who talks like the coaching manual and has found a distraction from his own inadequacies.
Club placed the matter in the public domain, thus opening the way for Barton to speak publicly.
Given that none of us actually knows what happened I doubt there is any legitimate reason for contract termination and the contract would have to be honoured in full if they want Barton out, circa £1.5 million. Money we simply don't have!
Walter, Souness or Mcleish would have handled it better because they are football people and man managers
Too many rushing to judgement on the basis of paper talk and the views of journalists like English, all of whom hate the Bears.
Barton should have been fined, be training with the youngsters and playing again in three weeks.
Do we need another drawn out legal case with massive lawyers fees over a bust up which happens in football on a regular basis? Grow up!

4.) 22 Sep 2016 16:22:08
honest ger halliday has been one of the hardest working players and was captain before when Wallace wasn't available so that not warbs being impartial and from what I gathered it started with barton being a d*ck halliday calling him on it warbs impartially coming to see what the problem was and barton starting on the manager. so

what is your problem with warbs.

I love the guy but have two problems with him

1) didn't shore up the defence the way everyone knew he had to
2) doesn't change the formation
other than that he is a great manager.



03 Sep 2016 00:22:30
What will these youngsters do when their contracts are up (the good ones I mean)?
Will they trip off to England and all we get is a development fee?
I do not see the SPL being a sufficient enough attraction.
Can we tie them up on a longer deal when they are 18?




27 Aug 2016 18:36:02
Was told last night from a non Rangers source that Lescott didn't come because he wanted a Monday off and was refused. Apparently someone else has this and he didn't think this was on.


1.) 27 Aug 2016 19:23:52
I think Barton has a clause where he doesn't have to perform on match days, sometimes looks that way anyway.

2.) 27 Aug 2016 22:42:16
Aye but he's the best tweeter in the starting line up.

3.) 27 Aug 2016 23:12:27
Cuillin72 could be onto someting there mate, though there are a good few more that must have the same loop in there contracts, as we have seen to date. lol.

What makes you think you are a true fan? You are obvious not too bright if you think nobody can stop a take over.
Your previous posts show youhavnt a clue about how a business works and this one confirms it.

What did Ashley, as a businessman do that was wrong?
Do you understand his job it to get the best deal s company?
If he comes to us with several millions and does the best deal for his investment we would be laughing.

The true Newcastle fans realise he was the best for them as they couldn't get another John Hall.
True Rangers want the best for the club not an opportunity to spout petty, ill-informed opinions based on a lack of inte

In practical terms it means nothing.
When a shareholder owns a percentage of a company -I think its 40% - they must offer to buy up all the shares at the price he paid for the shares that took him over the 40%.
Dave King has to offer say 20p per share but as they are currently at 29p no one would be stupid enough to sell to him when you can get 29p on the market. As it stands DK has to pay zilch but will incur the cost of making the offer and collecting the refusals. Even if the shares were £ 100 he only has to offer the price on the date he bought his last lot.
Giving this a big press without an explanation is mischief making

Alukos sister would walk into our team as well.

Has anyone heard that Ally is coming back as a coach for the forwards?
Heard from a usually good source –not a Rangers fan but involved in football.
