Jam Tarts are toast. Jamie is on his way.


1.) 30 Jul 2017 02:12:24
Yeah 100% Doiger. Especially after Cathro doesn't play him stating he's unsettled and isn't PERFORMING!
Cathro really did need to win that game. Can only think that it is now so imminent that a Club/ Manager does not want a Player going out to pick up a stupid injury!

2.) 30 Jul 2017 08:54:59
Jam tarts are toast? Isn't that a pop tart?



04 Jul 2017 10:15:17
Media now reporting that the deal to sign Dorrans will be completed within 48 hours now that the bid has been accepted. Good news indeed.


1.) 04 Jul 2017 12:25:52
Really hope so
It's good to have depth in the squad but depth in our quality is what will help us challenge for trophies

2.) 04 Jul 2017 12:26:28
Need him in on or b4 7th July for next round in Europe assuming we get there mate. Walker can be a wildcard tae.

3.) 04 Jul 2017 12:49:33
Hope walker does sign, looked quality last season when playing against us, think he would be similar to the signing of mccann

4.) 04 Jul 2017 17:16:22
Can only see it in a few Scottish rags and it's speculative at best. Still no further on than it was weeks ago as far as I'm concerned! Getting very boring now

5.) 05 Jul 2017 00:34:46
We are still four or five players short in terms of a squad, unfortunately that includes two first eleven fullbacks! Anyone that thinks that Wallace is a captain is sadly deluded!



03 Jul 2017 10:08:32
Deal for Dorrans on the brink of being completed according to DR. let's get Walker in now too but I hope we hold on to Mackay.


1.) 03 Jul 2017 10:26:12
if we are only getting the reported 750k for baz i would rather keep him!

2.) 03 Jul 2017 11:12:41
Why keep a guy who in 5 months can leave for a development fee? Take the 750k, put in a release clause and go from there.

3.) 03 Jul 2017 11:56:31
he signed a 3 year contract did he not last year?

4.) 03 Jul 2017 14:01:55
No FIFA Guy that's the problem he refused it him and his agent want wages that he simply has not deserved with recent performances he thinks he's entitled to wages on par with the high end performers take the 750k and replace with Walker who wants to be at Ibrox



02 Jul 2017 18:49:46
Daily Express and Daily Record reporting that Rangers have met Norwich's asking price for Dorrans but no permission yet granted to speak to him. I reckon if they still mess about after this tell them to shove it and forget Barjonas too!


1.) 02 Jul 2017 20:53:36
Why we messed them about with what just the 4 offers to get to what they asked for the player in the first place, if you ask me its our penny pinching approach on Scottish players as usual that has taken all this time and infact its been us that's messed them about, we should of just paid them the £1.5mil from the start or second bid and he would of been signed a long time ago, we do this all the time yet we pay top money for the foreign players that have come in but don't do the same with British/ Scottish players, just look at our past on this aswell its not just this season others aswell. But Really hope that is finally going to be deal done now and move on and pay proper money for walker and a new keeper imo and that would be a great squad

2.) 02 Jul 2017 21:22:48
This this is just getting silly now think we should just move on now it's getting stupid now

3.) 02 Jul 2017 21:27:58
I wonder if the 11th hr bid from sunderland has made norwich think twice.

their offer is possibly structured better than ours ie more up front who knows - it's not half dragging on tho!

hope good digs his heels in and tells norwich he only wants a move to the teddy bears

4.) 02 Jul 2017 23:26:53
It's no secret Norwich are struggling financially and need to clear a lot of big earners why should we go in with an offer they want it's not good business for our point of view



22 Jun 2017 13:53:07
Third bid put in for Dorrans. Fingers crossed. Quite amusing to see various reports about supposed Septic targets moving elsewhere. Don't rate Hayes that much so they are welcome to him. Rodgers won't be able to add many more big wage earners. After all, they too still only play in the SPL and must be paying Dembele and Sinclair big money.


1.) 22 Jun 2017 14:18:56
Who cares about the manky mob

2.) 22 Jun 2017 14:52:45
It's on FF that the latest bid has been rejected! Again.
I hope it's not true but if so- I have had enough of Norwich and we should move on to another target 🎯

Either way I'm sure we will all find out in a few hours.

3.) 22 Jun 2017 15:17:20
Agree with you Jeseca, we shouldn't be held to ransom. If there is no room for negotiation from Norwich, just move on unfortunately.

4.) 22 Jun 2017 16:44:20
If dorrans wants the move that badly he can push from his end. Personally I'd put all our efforts into getting walker in. Knows the league and the opposition inside out and has an eye for goal. As excited as I am about all the knew signings not one of them (apart from jack) has played here and it might take a bit of time to adjust.

5.) 22 Jun 2017 16:51:52
We lost out to sellik a few years ago for players and it was down to them willing to pay more so let's just pay Him at hearts who hates us and pay Norwich the money so we can get the group pedro wants!

6.) 22 Jun 2017 17:18:36
For all the jerseys you all have been buying you must have the 1m hearts want . Time the so called big team spent like a big team .

7.) 22 Jun 2017 17:28:29
Big team but not stupid buddy. Why pay a million plus for a HEARTS player over 23 with a year left?

8.) 22 Jun 2017 18:01:44
I soppose we could hire an empty cow that we could put money in, don't suppose anybody knows empty ones going

9.) 22 Jun 2017 18:08:58
Dorrans bid has been officially rejected again, time to move on,

Probably have new targets in mind, as window progresses I'm sure we will find out who. I do kind of feel sorry for graham and his family, they were desperate for it to happen.

10.) 22 Jun 2017 19:11:52
Jes just because you say it's time to move on does not mean our management team feel the same. I fully expect this deal to be completed the player must by now be telling someone down at Carrow road enough is enough and force the deal through from his end.

11.) 22 Jun 2017 19:21:39
Yeah don't pay over the odds for him offer hearts O'Halloran and 250K for Walker and look at getting Kenny McLean or maybe looking at another Portugese player that Pedro has worked with maybe someone for the future

12.) 22 Jun 2017 19:33:16
Maybe you could buy walker on the season ticket money sales projected. Oh no we all know how that pans out 😂😂😂😂 itl be all whyte on the night!

13.) 22 Jun 2017 22:25:33
Sensing fear in loanheads "humour"

14.) 22 Jun 2017 22:33:07
I would tell the Hearts boy that we will sign him next summer and make good on the wages that he will lose out on. I am sure he will give 100% to Hearts in the coming season. If they see we are moving on and will wait for a season then they might just accept our last offer rather than have an unhappy player and less money!

As for Dorrans, as has been said, if he wants to come to us then I suspect that he can make it happen at the offer that has been made. If he is not that desperate to join us, we move on to the next target!

15.) 22 Jun 2017 23:08:47
Downing released by middlesborough no bad shout boys, what ye think?

16.) 23 Jun 2017 00:00:19
shef wed have apparently met norwichs valuation of good and made him a fantastic offer. watch this space.

17.) 23 Jun 2017 00:11:22
No that's fear because he has no humour, he is of the "Back in the day" bunch when all tims could touch what and when they wanted.

20 Sep 2017 08:37:35
Any thoughts on the team Pedro should play on Saturday subject to injuries? I'd really like to see Pena and Herrera in the heat of an Old Firm match. Should Alnwick be given the nod? And what about young McCrorie if Alves is injured? Suggestions please!


1.) 20 Sep 2017 09:31:02
I'm not sure about pitching McCrorie into an old firm. Could be a stroke of genius but if it goes wrong it could spell the end for Caixinha and him.

I would hold Herrera to the bench just now as we should def still go 4-5-1 and it needs to be Morelos up top.

Alnwick did well last night so that is a tough one. Fods not had any disasters to be dropped but Alnwick gives me more confidence. Alnwick in I say.

If Alves is injured I only hope this heightens everyone's need to focus a little more. I reckon only the boss who has seen them all in training can decide who gets the nod.

My other concern is Windass is far to predictable on the left and comes inside giving us no width and cannot team up with John/ Wallace.

2.) 20 Sep 2017 09:31:09
Looking likely Bruno and John will be out which realistically leaves us with a back line of Tav Cardoso Mccrorie and Hodson. We need a LM who will track back and defend on Saturday and Windass is useless for that, issue is we have nobody to replace him.

3.) 20 Sep 2017 09:52:52
Good posts guys. What about Wilson in central defence if Alves is injured and Beerman at left back? Assuming Alves, John, Rossiter and Wallace are all out injured I'd go with (4-5-1):

Alnwick; Tavernier, Cardoso, Wilson, Hodson; Jack, Dorrans, Candeias, Pena, Beerman; Morelos

Beerman is fast and a left-sided player. We'd have Herrera and Miller on the bench if we need late goals and I've a feeling Pena will relish the Old Firm battle, as will Dorrans. We might not win but I don't think we'll lose either. My prediction: 2-2

4.) 20 Sep 2017 10:32:15
Alwick has a magnificent beard so gets my nod lol, in all seriousness though we need john in the team i liked the look of him last night, bruno won't miss out but we have to be harder in midfield in el buffalo we have somebody with confidence up top i really think we could do well, celtic are a team playing well but we can get a result as long as we keep going as we seem to give up, i also think they'll be some meaty tackles in this one can see red cards in it, as long as we win i couldn't care though, pedro did speak sense last night though its all about confidence

5.) 20 Sep 2017 10:40:06

I would go with your team. I think given we haven't seen too much of beerman so Pedro might go with Miller on the left.

I thought John, mccrorie, Pena and candias were all good last night. Cardozo did ok but needs to defend better when players run at him.

7 games in and we need to throw boys into the Celtic game by the look of things.

It looks like Rossiter and kranjar are done and I worry about big Wallace. His form has been poor for a while now plus it looks like he is going to struggle with his groin injury.

I think the rebuilding job is much bigger than I expected. I just hope Pedro is the right man for the job as we can't afford too many more mistakes.

6.) 20 Sep 2017 11:17:46
I'd like to know what all the doom mongers think about Pedro's signings now, in light of last night's goals. Admittedly it was only Patrick, but you can only play what's in front of you. Surely Pena and Herrera should be given a bit of time now, instead of being slaughtered on here constantly.

7.) 20 Sep 2017 12:00:59
We have played six league games with only one defeat and that was when Jack was sent off - we would have won if we had 11 men on the park. We are in the semi-finals of the League Cup and if we beat Celtic on Saturday we'll be within 2 points of them in the league and they've to go to Aberdeen next month. The last four of the League Cup could well be Rangers, Hibs, Aberdeen and Celtic, so that will be tough. The biggest flop was our Europa League defeat but that's gone now. I really do think we'll finish 2nd at worst and also within a single figure points margin from Celtic.

8.) 20 Sep 2017 13:11:02
Paddy Roberts has wet dreams about Beerman playing.

9.) 20 Sep 2017 13:12:54
I'd take 2nd with a single figure difference as a minimum Doiger.
My team for the weekend is same as most on the right and middle. I do think Alnwick deserves a shot in goal.
I'm not sure about the left. John at lb if fit. Then either beerman on left wing for cover or miller for goals.

10.) 20 Sep 2017 14:32:09
Beerman's injured, thankfully.

11.) 20 Sep 2017 15:39:20
You don't need to remind us, we all know your mob have wet dreams about guys

12.) 20 Sep 2017 15:47:21
Wison? We'd be better off with Davie Wilson and he's 78.

13.) 21 Sep 2017 00:28:10
Is Holt worth a try on the left in the old firm game instead of windlass as Berman is injured and don't know if nemane or dalcio are ready.

14.) 21 Sep 2017 00:50:16
Alnwick is a good shot stopper but his distribution is not as good as Wes, how many counter attacks does Wes set up each game. Alnwick is too slow getting the ball out which gives the opposition time to get back into position. It is a no brainier Wes is a better goalie hands down

15.) 21 Sep 2017 00:54:49
Or even Scott Wilson! Remember him?

16.) 21 Sep 2017 01:25:39
RtrTRnF - you are deluded mate, we will not be anywhere near single figures of Celtic this season, we have won 3 games out of 6 and if we lose on Saturday ( which we will ) it will be 8 points already. The sooner wake up and realise this the better.

17.) 22 Sep 2017 14:44:23
GraemeH89,you're replying to the wrong poster pal, I think it might be DOIGERS post. It's definitely not mine. And it's RtRnRf as in Rangers then Rangers now Rangers forever!



19 Sep 2017 22:44:27
3-1 away win, League Cup 1/ 4 final. Can't we just be happy we've won?




16 Sep 2017 10:18:27
Disappointing to only draw as I thought we'd go on to win after the goal by Morelos. Having said that, under Warburton if we had gone 2-1 down after leading 1-0 we would have lost. Got to play Rossiter against Celtic and maybe even bring Holt back for Windass. If we lose next week we could be 8 points behind Celtic and Aberdeen and could be again looking at third place at best. Team v Celtic:
Foderingham; Tavernier, Alves, Cardoso, John; Rossiter; Jack, Dorrans, Holt; Morelos, Hardie.


1.) 16 Sep 2017 11:07:03
I agree with you doiger! Jason holt gives our team a lot of energy and a helluva lot more than windass, that's for sure! I've always liked wee holt and for the life of me, can't understand why he's faded completely, out the picture altogether! Get holty in for the cup game against the harry rags, on tuesday and in again for the old firm game away week today! You can't have enough of what holt brings to the rangers starting 11,imho!

2.) 16 Sep 2017 11:19:45
Windass was poor but he nds to play nxt wk as he gives us more of an attacking threat. Holt got bumped abt like a pinball off Brown the last 2games so i wouldn't building him up as the great white hope

3.) 16 Sep 2017 11:30:56
Having suggested my team I'd quite like to see Pena vs Broonie!

4.) 16 Sep 2017 13:10:42
My god holt is not the answer! Lmfao.

5.) 16 Sep 2017 13:29:10
What is the answer then coldo?

6.) 16 Sep 2017 14:26:02
Defo not Holt anyway! Why do we always scream for the players that aren't getting a game like Holt, Barjonas, Hardie?

7.) 16 Sep 2017 16:02:20
Holt does nothing and contributes nothing. He just gets brushed off the ball against the Celtic midfield. It's going to be hard enough without playing passengers like Holt

8.) 17 Sep 2017 03:30:09
Better players than holt doiger, as I have said if we never wasted nearly 5mil on herrera and pena then we could have moult walker mclean and we would be in better shape as a team. I would also have got the boy shinnie from aberdeen. Derek mcinnes has aberdeen 5 wins and a draw from 6 games. Just saying👍

9.) 17 Sep 2017 03:36:26
Think being a bit hard on Holt and nobody has said should be building the team around him. Off the bench I can see him contributing to this team, in fact think Holt on for Miller in second half last night and we could have closed the game out and got 3 points.



15 Sep 2017 19:02:53
Can't believe Miller is starting again tonight. Surely Herrera or Pena should have started with Miller as sub?


1.) 15 Sep 2017 20:59:10
I can't believe how much space Tav is giving up to that Partick left wing. Frightening.

2.) 15 Sep 2017 21:52:29
Doiger - Pena and Herrera are rubbish

3.) 15 Sep 2017 22:14:59

Spot on mate. Never seen a player give the ball away as much as Pena and can Herrera really be that slow? Looks like he is pulling a caravan when he runs. Windass shocking again

4.) 15 Sep 2017 22:43:34
Can't believe we paid nearly 5mil for pena and herrera. Both poor again. Defending a joke. There's always next week.

5.) 15 Sep 2017 23:49:53
£1.5m for a carthorse when we could have got Moult for less than half that. Manager just doesn't help himself

6.) 16 Sep 2017 08:29:31
Bad night IMO. windlass is never a LW also think dorrans should be playing further forward and miller should stay up top and stop coming to deep. we need to be stronger/ tougher in midfield as thistle bullied us in there. Another bad performance and I'm all for giving managers time but I don't think Pedro's got it tbh some bad signings and tactically unaware

7.) 16 Sep 2017 08:59:02
Good point Sparky. We paid over £2m for Pena when we could have landed McLean for under £1m. We signed Herrera for £1.5m when we could have signed May for free or Moult for just over£500K. Who are both proven goal scoarers in Scotland. Confusing.



12 Sep 2017 10:47:23
If we beat Partick this Friday and let's say we beat Celtic the following Saturday, even 2-1 or something. We'd be level on points at worse and top of the league. What do fellow Bears think the effects would be? Would we then go on a long run with confidence high and would it dent Celtic's confidence? Before then of course they have PSG tonight. What damage would a home drubbing cause to them? Just interested to hear views of fellow Bears.


1.) 12 Sep 2017 11:07:07
ha ha ha before I even saw who posted this, I KNEW it was you DOIGER.
Enjoy watching Eastenders tonight lol

2.) 12 Sep 2017 11:46:47
Stop the hypothetical crap and take 1 game at a time. its looking at it like that then we end up dropping points at Thistle then you want rid of the manager.

3.) 12 Sep 2017 13:10:16
Selik are playing in the UCL tonite against the most expensive team in the world with not 1 but 2 of the most expensive plyers in the world and the 1st thing they do when they wake up is come on the "sevco" site. honestly uz couldn't make it up😂

It is all about The Rangers for every single man Jack of them! Lol

6.) 12 Sep 2017 17:39:01
Unfortunately I think Celtic will beat us, they are strong and consistent. We need to just keep plugging away and beating the rest, too many silly draws and needless defeats must be a thing of the past if we want to get second and be fairly close to them. Remember Aberdeen, Hearts, Hibs and St Johnston are all flying full pelt having the seasons of theirs lives, were only just getting into 3rd gear and already level with that lot. Next season they will realize their place again and bow to the greatest football club in the world.
PS-Celtic will start to decline over the next 12 to 18 months not by much but they will, as all their "stars" will leave including Rodgers. New manager will have a clear out and stuttering start just as we peak. As all experts predicted a few years ago 2018/ 2019 is when we come back to haunt the basatrds. IMO

Mystic Megs a Bluenose😂

8.) 12 Sep 2017 19:43:22
Listen up guys its all well and good having a pop at each other but for one thing if we manage to beat celtic it will be a really big ask but if we do then I think it will be a tremendous boost to the players and it will be a battle cry to them and the following old firm would be effin bouncing. that's what's needed a big spark to ignite the passion again. let's do the next league and cup game first though.

9.) 12 Sep 2017 21:46:07
i agree mate. let's not start thinking about that lot too soon and get good wins before it. imagine how shook they will be if we turn them over, the entitlement reeks out of them

Naismith scored 75 goals in around 300 games for all clubs to date and more goals for Scotland too. I think he knows where the net is. For me, Naismith and Walker would be excellent signings.

The new signings are fantastic news but we can't just throw away some of our young Scottish talent like Mackay, Bates, Hardie, Burt, Wilson. Mackay might thrive with the new signings in the team. I also hope Jason Holt stays as a squad player and Tav also stays to fight for his place.

We should give Pedro until Christmas and if we are languishing in 3rd or worse and are double points behind celtic then he should go. God knows who should replace him! I thought Tavernier was one of our better players on Saturday and I'd like to see him played further forward. We have Hodson, John, Beerman and Wallace (when fit) as full backs. McCrorie was very good as well. We must go on a run and win five or six on the trot.

Tommy Rangers. The Bread Man was better? Nottingham Forest lost AGAIN yesterday and are 12th in the Championship so that is utter rubbish. Alves was obviously injured otherwise why would the club say he was? Celtic have had five years unchallenged in Scottish football and accumulating CL money whilst we are now trying to catch up. Young Mccrorie showed that youngsters can step up to the mark so why has Hardie still not been given a chance? Why play only one striker at home regardless of who we are playing? Injuries to Wallace, Alves and Rossiter are unfortunate. Time to give Mccrorie an extended run as I think Cordoso is a liability in defence. Play Beerman at left back for now and Hodson at right back and move Tavernier forward to right midfield. Give Alnwick a run in goal too. Team for next game:
Alnwick; Hodson (or John), Mccrorie, Alves, Beerman; Jack, Dorrans, Candeias, Kranjcar; Morelos, Hardie

We are getting there slowly but whether Pedro is the answer I'm not sure. We must give him until Christmas. The league is gone already unless we turn things round and go on a long winning run and beat Celtic in their next two games.

I agree James. Morelos and Moult up-front sounds exciting! I'm not so keen about Walker though, I'd rather get Naismith.

Well said thinkaboutit. I too am a long standing Gers fan (52 years I think) . You are right, years of accumulating CL money has given them an advantage. If we can get back to win the SPL title within the next couple of years and back into Europe again (hopefully depriving them of any real European money) then we can begin to build solid finances again. I couldn't care less about all this 10-in-a-row nonsense. What would that prove? In the absence of Rangers in the top flight, it just shows how poor Aberdeen, Hearts, et al are that they couldn't mount a challenge. Once Celtic meet real opposition (e. g. PSG, Barca) then they get stuffed. As I've said before, big fish, small pond.
