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.

18.) 23 Jun 2017 01:32:42
We all know they are watching these pages all the time. But you know there's concern when they start to comment and reveal the obsession.

16 May 2017 10:30:28
Warburton reportedly lining up a bid for Barrie Mackay. Get £6 or £7 million and throw in Kiernan, Senderos and Waghorn for good measure!


1.) 16 May 2017 10:53:47
Doiger, you are on the sauce if you reckon we'll get £6 or £7 million for McKay. Even at that, Pedro has stressed he wants to keep McKay and Mckay and stressed he doesn't want to leave, merely wants an improved contract.

2.) 16 May 2017 11:27:02
£6m or £7m megalolz

3.) 16 May 2017 12:21:20
Has McKay earned the right to an improved contract?

4.) 16 May 2017 11:36:22
2 million and mckay will be gone. Would love 6 or 7 million, but no chance.

5.) 16 May 2017 11:39:50
I see Doiger has borrowed our Dembelle calculator lol.

6.) 16 May 2017 12:50:49
well in dembelle money he is worth at least 20 million!

why is it because we are skint we don't rate our most tallented.

if he was down south he would easily be a 12 million pound player but because he is up here and we are skint people think he isn't worth money.

tell you what, if warbs gets him for 6 million he is still getting a bargain compared to what he could get for 6 million down south.

7.) 16 May 2017 13:20:37
If he was under contract for 4-5 years he would be worth around £4m IMO
With him having just over a season to go he's worth closer to £2m I'm afraid. I hope we sign him on long term contract and let him continue to improve and then he can be talked about in the £6-7m bracket

8.) 16 May 2017 13:42:45
dont want mckay to go to be honest i think in a much better rangers side he would still be our best asset and to say 2 million and he will be gone is not what rangers need we need to get good money for our best players yes let waggy and garner go for under 2 million bt mckay has had not a great season as i think he is a confidence player and when in a better side he will get better and better.

one thing I've noticed is when we give the ball to mckay no one helps him and he is being marked by 2/ 3 players at times.

in a good football team (rangers next season hopefully) he would have support and more outlets to pass the ball.

9.) 16 May 2017 14:08:48
i think he will sign a new contract but if they don't offer him an improved one then he will be heading down south where the money is.

10.) 16 May 2017 17:04:35
The difference is James Barrie would be nowhere near a 1st team down south. So no one would know about him lol. He had a fantastic first half of the season but is like a man down now at times. He got lucky with his goal and done nowt the rest of the game

11.) 18 May 2017 00:54:30
£6/ £7m for McKay is laughable, I watch and go down for a lot of league 2 football with Blackpool and honestly McKay would struggle to hold down a regular slot for them and would find the league really tough, u think Warburton would be thinking of him for the championship when he had his doubts about him up here? Not a chance

The Sheep fans going all out to get us stripped of titles because of the 'big tax' case. How pathetic. If we can't quite catch the manky mob this season the next best thing would be to muller the sheep and make them a distant third (or fourth) in the league. Morons.


1.) 07 Jul 2017 10:26:56
There own club are blowing them out
No statement to come from the club
Bitter clowns

2.) 07 Jul 2017 11:48:45
The media only want stories and comments from people who want the titles stripped. People who back us do not get publicity because that's not a good headline. Rangers media department should get to grips with anti Rangers bias and "nip this negativity in the bud"

3.) 07 Jul 2017 12:17:45
I know this is very extreme but it reflects my feeling for the other Scottish clubs at the moment.
It would be great if we could play away games on the big screens at Ibrox and fire all the away games gate money back into our club rather than financing the clubs that are hell bent on hurting Rangers

4.) 07 Jul 2017 12:52:00
What league rules were broken? Or is this retrospective action?

5.) 07 Jul 2017 13:11:19
Great idea Fraser. Won't happen though due to broadcasting rights. As for those northern vermin - I wouldn't waste my breath on them

6.) 07 Jul 2017 16:17:59
"It would be great if we could play away games on the big screens at Ibrox. "
Great idea. Except we'd probably end up giving these teams more than if we took and sold our ticket allocation.

New Rangers manager poll options would be:

Barry Ferguson
Neil McCann
Alex McLeish
Derek McInnes
Graeme Souness
Sam Allardyce


{Ed033's Note -

Rangers Manager Poll

1.) 05 Jul 2017 12:48:00
Fannies let this team settle and support the team. Best fans in the world what a load of crap, glory hunters if you go by 80% of the posters on here since yesterday. Remember sir Walter spending a fortune Laudrup, gasgoine and Co going out in the first round when we had a pretty season warm up and the league under way. That to me was bigger under achieving and that spending with no return from Europe was the main factor in us going under so get a grip and act like supporters

2.) 05 Jul 2017 12:55:36
I don't think my choice, Derek McInnes, is an absolutely top manager but he is a safe pair of hands and it's inconceivable that we would have been humiliated like that last night if he had been in charge.

Personally I would take any of the names offered on the poll over Pedro. Nice guy but tactically completely clueless.

3.) 05 Jul 2017 13:53:39
Well said Gary totally agree he took over a shambles of a squad. Give him time at least. I remember on this forum no one wanted derek mcinnes now every man and dog want hin

4.) 05 Jul 2017 14:44:37
Nad, you would take Ferguson, that says it all really!



05 Jul 2017 11:29:39
After a dreadful result and no excuses for those who played, at least those have been with us all season, Pedro has signed 9 players and they have not yet even had a chance to string together competitive games. Disastrous though last night was surely the time to judge the new players will be in a few weeks time? Times like this I'm glad I live in the south of England so won't bump into any Septic fans! Got to keep smiling.


1.) 05 Jul 2017 13:45:48
We still have Herrera, Pena, Alves and Dorrans to come in to that team, along with, possibly, Walker. That's half a team. No excuses for last night, but surely improvement is on the way when these players are bedded in. My main concern is that the two full backs are not of the standard we need and that the loan player needs sent back ASAP as he is a complete dud. And if Alnwick isn't better than Fod, then we also need a goalkeeper. Once again the manager seems to be drawn towards midfield players instead of strengthening other areas that badly need it.



05 Jul 2017 09:22:47
Give Pedro the first six SPL games and then King and the Board must make a decision. If we are already adrift of Septic by 3 points or more by then he should be sacked. On the other hand, maybe the new players will prove otherwise and we might be top of the league. Surely the new players deserve a chance and a run in the team? Some (e. g. Alves) haven't even played yet! Neither has Dorrans. If Pedro is sacked, then who is the target for new manager? Ed - how about a poll as to who would replace Pedro if he is sacked? My vote would be for Barry Ferguson (he has passion)


{Ed033's Note - For a poll, i need a question and possible options to vote on. i know the question but not the possible voting options.

1.) 05 Jul 2017 10:56:19
@doiger - passion? But obviously ability doesn't matter then? And how long are you going to give a club legend? Remember Greig was voted the greatest ever Ranger and we chased him out the door when he was manager.
We will end up like Forest or Leeds, big clubs, but now basket cases due to the continual changing of managers. Now more than ever we need stability on and off the park.

2.) 06 Jul 2017 14:27:58
Barry Ferguson your having a laugh. He has done nothing to warrant getting rangers job . I've got passion for rangers maybe i should be considered.



03 Jul 2017 16:07:39
Scottish Sun reporting a few minutes ago that Norwich have accepted a bid of £1.5 million from Rangers for Dorrans. Now waiting for permission to speak to the player. There at last it seems!


1.) 03 Jul 2017 16:25:21
Apparently only 750k and he should be signed for Wednesday

2.) 03 Jul 2017 16:28:05
The actual fee is about half of that. Typical Sun, got to exaggerate everything. Dorrans in, McKay out and not a penny spent. Good business.

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.

Could be a loan signing joscro, if we can afford his wages. He'd certainly be better than Dembele

08 Jun 2017 08:49:09
Apart from us never being able to come close to affording someone like Batashuyi for that matter, only the top half a dozen or so clubs in the EPL could do so. And the celtic mob couldn't afford him either, just to put things in perspective. I'm delighted with the signings so far and hopefully those to come and I have to say that the board and King have put their money where their mouths are.

All this stuff about players such as Mackay being a 'wee boy'. If you have the talent and the class it doesn't matter how old you are, e. g. George Best, Denis Law, Ally McCoist, Derek Johnstone, et al. It must be down to attitude and of course money because Forest must be offering Mackay a lot more than Rangers can.

Halliday apparently off to Azerbaijan on loan and Forest interested in Mackay. I'd keep Crooks in the hope he recovers from injury (never had a chance under Warburton) and Dodoo never really got a chance either. Get rid of Kiernan, Hodson, Waghorn, et al, if on loan in the SPL fine.
