Local Plymouth newspaper reporting that Argyle might go for Ryan Hardie. I do not understand why Warburton and Caixhina didn't give Hardie a chance. They can't say the players they did pick exactly set the heather alight! Yet another youngster might be leaving. What is the point of having a youth development squad if none of them ever get a chance? Ross McCrorie has proved that given that chance, they can take it. I never thought Cummings would be the answer though he never got a chance either.


1.) 01 Jun 2018 13:23:54
Well that’s now 3 Rangers managers who have been in charge of him now. Think there’s maybe a clue there mate.

2.) 01 Jun 2018 15:09:07
Must admit guys I am disappointed how Docherty performed but do understand he is young and it might take him time to adjust playing for a massive club? Let’s hope Stevie gives him a chance but I think he will struggle for game time? 🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧

3.) 01 Jun 2018 15:12:00
The lad can finish but I think the Scottish championship is his level. Hope he proves me wrong tho

4.) 01 Jun 2018 15:22:46
He's not at the level we need to win trophies - lower SPFL/ Championship at best

5.) 01 Jun 2018 15:36:40
Doiger mate S. G. started today don't blame him IF Hardie goes it will be because the manager don't rate him and I'll trust S. G. s opinion over yours. WE would all love 2 or 3 of our own to come through regularly but if they ain't good enough sadly that's it. We do seem to be linked with more youngsters since Murty left hope that continues.

6.) 01 Jun 2018 16:36:17
I thought Docherty was solid for us. He was the scapegoat after the Hampden fiasco.

7.) 01 Jun 2018 19:06:15
If Gerard doesn't keep him that will be 4 managers who didn't rate him! That will surely be the end of debate

8.) 01 Jun 2018 19:20:03
Liam Gallagher, DOIGER is Hardie's secret dad; he's been trying to make a case for him for years and, like the player, he's not doing very well.

9.) 01 Jun 2018 20:21:10
Was Plymouths Centre Back Sonny Bradley not attracting interest from Rangers and few weeks ago?
Could be part of the deal if Hardie is released by SG.



16 Apr 2018 09:47:57
Something clearly isn't right in the dressing room and that must be down to the manager. I thought we made good signings in January with Goss, Murphy, Docherty and Cummings all brought in. We've played well in some games but something isn't right. I don't believe we are as bad as 4-0 suggests. Watching the highlights again there is no way either of the penalties should have been given, very soft. How Morelos didn't score three goals I'll never know. Gordon is either brilliant against us or lucky. I put this down to a very bad day at the office and hopefully changes can be made for the last five games to ensure we finish 2nd. Get rid of Martin as he is a liability.


1.) 16 Apr 2018 11:15:41
Would have more respect for you if you weren’t trying to give excuses both penalties were correct. Not heard a single ex player including a number of your own say different you got pumped end of totally outclassed by a better team

2.) 16 Apr 2018 11:17:59
Doiger ask yourself if that had happened to us in their box and they weren't given We would all be up in arms Mcrorrie penalty was as clear as it can be never saw holts as I'd chucked it by then
I'm surprised at your post you're generally reasonable with your posts but think you're wrong here bud

3.) 16 Apr 2018 11:18:50
Should have taken the £11 million for Morelos but that's hindsight.

4.) 16 Apr 2018 11:25:57
Well said. Yesterday was terrible no one can question that but there have been positives since January. We need three high quality new players (as a minimum) to go straight into the team, there are around 8 positions where we have players who in the right set up can do a job. At this point it is essential that everyone holds their nerve and doesn't get hysterical. We mustn't through the baby out with the bathwater here, we must build on the progress that has been made and not go back to square one yet again.

5.) 16 Apr 2018 11:37:50
There was no £11m for Morelos!

6.) 16 Apr 2018 11:57:53
Doiger sorry mate but in my opinion you are totally wrong, we are lucky that they never scored more than 4, they strolled through the game and never got out of second gear, first half we couldn't pass, kept giving the ball away, didn't get the ball to Murphy or Morelos the list just goes on,
As soon as Alves came on the defence looked more organised and he was winning everything in the air Martin was having another nightmare game,
We are all hurting after yesterday but at least we all now know that we need a manager who can motivate the players,

7.) 16 Apr 2018 11:58:58
ok first of all we were atrocious and they deserved to win absl no question they strolled it and the score cld have been bigger. fact

however 1st pen was a tug a yard outside the box take off your green tinted specs timmy

if that was a pen for us the open line wld be in meltdown with all the usual conspiracies and establishment refs guff . it was a red card but never ever a pen.

that decision would not have changed result but it was still wrong decision just like sterling pen for man city at spurs - it was a yard outside the box

if you can’t see that have another look i know a good guide dog if you need it

8.) 16 Apr 2018 11:59:44
Penalties were both correct decisions stone wall we just didn’t turn up tactics were poor no idea why we played Halliday I know Windass is not everyone’s cup f tea but the thing he can do is run with the ball getting us up the park, we were stuck in our own half Celtic were all over us, but I agree with you TomVallance we can just condem all players we showed in the home game we can compete with them to a degree, they are still a good bit ahead of us, but with a good manager (I’ve no idea who) who can get the best out of players and three or four quality additions especially at the back and a midfield player who can compete with Brown we would at least make a game of it, Murty has been hung out to dry by this board he’s never a manager he was the U20s coach for Christ sake, theboard really need to take a look at themselves that three managers they have appointed wasted millions and we are no further forward unless there are changes soon we could end not even in a Euro spot and next season will be a fight for second again, my fear is fans will drift away season ticket sales will decline I’m old enough to remember sitting inside Ibrox with less than 20000 fans, the ones I have spoke to are loosing the will my renewal is just short of £600 not cheap but I fear we are becoming the new Leeds Utd a big club who got it wrong fans drift and the ones who are left just accept it, right now we need leaders right from the boardroom to the pitch, look at yesterday we had no leaders on the pitch no one to drive us on a manager who doesn’t command respect, why did the board come out with that statement last week basically saying a new manager would come in next season we were about to play our biggest game and the manager was undermined, we have to stand firm we need to stay together and the board need to act

9.) 16 Apr 2018 14:35:52
I agree thinkaboutit, I have followed Rangers for 57 years, and this is the worst team I have seen, and there have been one or two horrendous displays. Murty's tactics were totally wrong, we sat too deep and against this Celtic side that is suicidal. I thought that Tavernier was the only player with some sort of pass mark yesterday, Halliday reacted through embarrassment when he raged after being taken off, I personally would have taken Dorrans off instead of Candeis as he offered nothing all game, as for Martin enough has been said already. What has Cummings got to do to get some game time just now, the lad proved often enough against us that he can be problematic in big games, Morelos has had his chance and blown it in the big games, he tries hard, but whatever was offered from China or wherever should have been accepted. I look at the journeymen that Motherwell have brought in, in particular the man who replaced Moult, and wonder what the hell Mark Allen is getting paid for. If the rumours of GM having stepped down, I wouldn't blame him, and thank him for at least trying to get things sorted, too much for him though.

10.) 16 Apr 2018 15:38:56
Haven't seen or read anything bout Murty going back to youth but we can only hope. Silence from board regarding successor is deafening.

11.) 16 Apr 2018 17:49:43
They were both 100% penalties that is a fact

12.) 16 Apr 2018 19:40:19
If Murty didn’t fancy the job then all he had to say was no thanks, he didn’t and it’s not worked out for him. He shouldn’t be above criticism though.

13.) 17 Apr 2018 09:42:26
Got to laugh at that Trev, comment, a tug outside the box means it wasn't a penalty, maybe if Dembelle had been tripped outside the box and then he had stumbled inside the box, you might have an argument, but a tug and then he ran strongly into the box before getting more or less wrestled by McCrorie, are you allowed to drive with those blue lenses?



05 Feb 2018 16:40:15
Nobody really expects us to win the league this season did they? It is great that the new signings have come in but they will need time to bed in and have barely played a game for us yet. Also, surely the fact that players like Dorrans, Jack, McCrorie Alves, Wallace and Miller are injured means something?

A midfield in whatever format containing Jack, Dorrans, Murphy, Docherty and McCrorie would be much stronger? I still think 2nd is achievable and as has proved again, Septic will keep dropping points. If Morelos is going to sulk, get rid and recall Hardie from loan.


1.) 05 Feb 2018 23:22:42
I my opinion McCrorie is much more suited to being a centre half. He was just used in midfield to plug a gap.

2.) 06 Feb 2018 08:14:51
Agree follow follow I'd like to see mcrorie and Martin at centre half and rossiter and docherty in midfield with Dorrans Murphy and candias! Need a striker as Alfredo is going and kenny is past it

3.) 06 Feb 2018 13:47:38
We forgetting Sean Goss he's the best player we have
brought in this Jan so far. Goss Rossiter and docherty in the middle

4.) 10 Feb 2018 15:19:24
Would like to c Bates keeping his spot in the defence to be honest the boy is turning into a real player his positioning is brilliant and his passing is getting better



25 Jan 2018 12:15:12
Docherty medical was due at 10.30 today. Haven't heard anymore. Also, looks like Alves will stay as the Italian club are to sign Sagna instead. Worth keeping him until the end of the season if he stays fit.


1.) 25 Jan 2018 13:51:37
Just seen a video of him driving through the gates on Twitter Doiger, would expect the Announcement and the club photos done by tonight!

2.) 25 Jan 2018 14:47:06
Great news Wee Bear. I'm really excited about the January signings!

3.) 25 Jan 2018 17:23:06
Signing imminent at 1720
Completed Medical, agreed terms just doing some media work for the club then set to be unveiled around 6pm

4.) 25 Jan 2018 18:31:16
Why have we gave in to such a high sell on clause for Docherty? after all £680,000 is more than a fair price for a 21 year old player who hasn't really done much in the game or international game yet, don't get me wrong i am excited by this transfer but Sell ons are normally 10% or 20% of any future transfer fee so Why have we agreed to 25% to me that's crazy agreeing to a quarter of any future transfer, surely we could of said 15% max and even in the end agreed to 20% and even that is a lot but Would have been better and more fair, Murty or DOF must want Docherty bad cause we told other Scottish clubs were to go when they tried playing hard ball with fees example Hearts the Sheep to name a few, but I would rather give Hamilton the money for a good player than the likes of Hearts and the sheep for the same player any day of the week, Give them Nothing!

5.) 25 Jan 2018 18:38:23
Your timing is off on Docherty deal, TheGlasgowranger, you sure you weren't just guessing with your info? or if you weren't guessing can i ask where your info came from and what source? plz.

6.) 25 Jan 2018 21:17:11
Now confirmed on official website!

7.) 25 Jan 2018 22:09:42
This has been our most successful January transfer to date in recent years



24 Jan 2018 09:48:42
Scottish Sun reports Docherty signing today after a medical. Good news given the long-term injuries to Dorrans, Wallace and now Jack - apparently Jack might not play again this season? Murty should throw Goss, Murphy and Docherty straight into the team with Cummings and el Buffalo up-front.


1.) 24 Jan 2018 10:40:28
Docherty won't play tonight if he's only completing his deal today lol, he's probably not even spoken to any of our team yet let alone trained with them.

2.) 24 Jan 2018 10:44:09
Could be an advantage then CMRFC, lol

Morning Bears. Sorry, I think I posted this before but forgot to check for answers! Any idea how our boys did in the Toulon tournament? I understand that the two McCrories, Burt and Middleton were in the squad. I see we finished fourth losing to Turkey on penalties in the third place play-off.


1.) 10 Jun 2018 12:21:18
Watched all the u21 games my young neighbor billy gilmour done well considering his age picked up young player of the tournament plus now holds the record for the youngest player to play in the tournament so proud of him and do expect him and his younger brother to flourish in the game

2.) 10 Jun 2018 15:39:24
His younger brother is apparently slightly ahead of where Billy was at at his age. Motm performance in schools Scottish cup final. Billy is an outstanding wee player and I just hope he doesn’t get washed up in the numbers that Chelsea have.



06 Jun 2018 09:13:47
Morning Bears. I'm really excited about the new era under Steve Gerrard and the new signings already look good. What does anyone think about the existing crop of players coming good under Stevie G? I'm in particular thinking about Ryan Jack. If he is fit he'd be like a new signing. Dorrans too wasn't like his old self when he returned after injury. Also, if Morelos does stay and we sign a decent striker to partner him could he finally turn into a 30 goals a season striker?


1.) 06 Jun 2018 09:37:25
I just can’t see Jack getting close to our bench, he’s a complete liability who will cost us games. I honestly think he’ll end up at Motherwell.

2.) 06 Jun 2018 11:08:37
Targeted by refs last season. Red carded for passing a ball and accidentaly catching a player. Rogic shoots scores against us crunches into bates not even a yellow. Clear bias towards our players.

3.) 06 Jun 2018 11:44:52
I do hope Jack comes good for us this season there is a player in there but a fully fit Jack or Rossiter I'd take Rossiter all day long

4.) 06 Jun 2018 11:48:11
I agree with RfC_Chris. Jack was unlucky last season and was certainly targeted. Surely with Jack and Rossiter fit again there we have as good as two new signings. The jury's out for me with Dorrans and Docherty but on the face of it we've a strong squad of midfielders with McCrorie, Holt and Murphy too.

5.) 06 Jun 2018 11:56:37

Are you referring to the sending off at Aberdeen?

6.) 06 Jun 2018 12:01:51
Unlucky is one red card, when you get four in eighteen games (22% ) your simply a liability and need to move on asap

7.) 06 Jun 2018 12:40:08
It was 2.you can’t count the rescinded ones. That’s still not great but I think he can come good with Steven Gerard’s direction. We need a bit of steel, it’s been sadly lacking.



30 May 2018 11:14:56
Talk Sport are saying that Rangers are interested in signing Jordan Rhodes from Sheffield Wednesday. If we can get him at a sensible price I think he'd be a good signing, especially if Morelos stays and plays up front with him. Don't know what wage he is on though. One thing standing out now is that you can see players being interested in coming to play for Steve Gerrard given how huge a name he is in the game, unlike Pedro and the Biscuitman - who?


1.) 30 May 2018 12:35:07
Would love to see Rhodes pull in the famous blue but if anything I think it would likely be a loan mate.



24 May 2018 10:26:15
The hysteria in the press is continuing. They know absolutely nothing about Rangers and Gerrard's plans to sign players, nor do they know the situation regarding new finance coming to Rangers. We should all calm down and not make assumptions. How do we know Skrtel was ever going to be a signing target anyway? I'm looking forward to SG taking the reins on 1st June, then we'll see.


1.) 24 May 2018 10:41:08
O’dear. let’s not bury our head in the sand, Skrtel was a target who we were priced out of, (no doubt we knew this when realising information to the press that we looking at him) however a bit of press while selling season tickets after a disappointing season is never a bad thing!

2.) 24 May 2018 10:52:29
Ridiculous statement to make his agent has said what was offered a 5th of what he is on currently and Dave king didn't want to pay a fee where they want 5 million

3.) 24 May 2018 11:03:03
Dave king isn't going to pay over the odds for a 34 yr old with a year left on his contract and pay him rubbish loads then not get any resale value . rangers should be going down the morelos road buy in young promising players to sell on

4.) 24 May 2018 11:22:42
How about James Collins? Released from West Ham. I know he's 34 but surely worth a season or 2?

5.) 24 May 2018 11:39:07
He’d 100% shore up our defence.

6.) 24 May 2018 11:59:48
Agreed. Big Collins would do us a turn for a earn at least

7.) 24 May 2018 12:22:20
I would like Skrtel to sign but not at any price. The figures that are getting banded about for a 33 year old for fee and wages are a joke. I would be more worried if we caved in and paid what they want. Think we should move on and look elsewhere.

8.) 24 May 2018 12:25:59
His club didn’t want him to go so priced him at 5m. Rangers were willing to pay just over half of that and after sounding his agent out they believed a salary could be achieved. They were never going to match his current earnings but he’s now been made aware of other options where he can actually increase his salary. Unfortunately this was SG first choice CB and deal is dead. It won’t be the first player we try to get and be priced out of it and thus happens at every club so it’s not a board failing.

9.) 24 May 2018 23:01:38
@hollow55 - nearly 40000 season tickets sold before we were even in for Skrtel so you are talking Tom Kite when saying it was a marketing ploy.
Remember we sold 30000+ season tickets when Sandaza was our ‘ big name signing ‘! 😂
One thing about Rangers fans we always back the team in huge numbers.
P. S. What do celtic fans and Rangers fans have in common?
They both buy season tickets to guarantee to see The Famous Glasgow Rangers👍🔴⚪️🔵👍



17 May 2018 12:00:46
It seems that talks have begun with Solanke and Defoe. If so, the latter in particular could score goals for fun in Scotland. Oh, and Celtic have valued Tierney at £30 million. Good player though he is, that manky mob ain't half deluded!


1.) 17 May 2018 12:25:56
Tierneys good but he's no Andy Robertson. 30 million? They're dreaming.

2.) 17 May 2018 12:50:44
Not convinced on Solanke. Defoe I obviously has a reputation but I haven’t watched him closely since his years at Spurs and Sunderland. If he is still the same player then yes, could be ideal.

3.) 17 May 2018 13:36:03
Poseidon. I take it you never saw Solanke play on Sunday. the boy looks dynamite!

4.) 17 May 2018 13:55:11
Solanke would be a great signing.

5.) 17 May 2018 15:09:58
It was B30.

That’s 30 million Brenda Bitcoins


6.) 17 May 2018 16:02:50
I take it you never seen him in the under 20 championship with England where he was top goal scorer and player of the tournament! Solanke and Defoe up front nxt season we will be a force once again I have no doubt about that!

7.) 17 May 2018 16:39:02
We were top scorers in the league. Attacking is not our problem.

It is bad enough with idiots like Hartson, Sutton, Rodgers, Strachan et al pouring cold water over Gerrards's anticipated arrival but I'm also sick to death of the likes of McCoist, Ferguson, Boyd and other ex-Rangers players doing the same. Why don't they shut up and why doesn't McCoist invest some of his money to help the club, much of which he earned for doing sweet FA when he was manager. End of rant!

blueger69. Most of our youngsters haven't been given a chance over the last five or six years! Hardie and Burt are classic cases from the current crop. Bates was just breaking through and is now gone. McCrorie does have a lot of promise, given time. Also, Aiden Wilson, Barjonas, Atakaya? I recall McCoist didn't take any chances and signed duff has-beens rather than give the kids a chance. I've been mocked on here before about Hardie but surely he couldn't be worse than Morelos! I wonder how we would have done over the last few weeks if Ryan Jack, Rossiter and Wallace had all been fit?
