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 Β£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 πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ 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.

So the Celtic/ Aberdeen select couldn't even get a result against a mediocre Dutch team last night. Maybe now we'll get a manager in who'll throw away his green-tinted glasses and love of sheep and play others such as Snodgrass, Morrison, Walker, Naismith, Dorrans, Rhodes, etc. Other than Tierney and Robertson, I don't really rate any of the current Scotland mob though reluctantly I'd play Griffiths if on form. Rangers are some way off supplying players for the national team again though surely Jack, Dorrans and even wee Holt should at least be in the squad? McCrorie is certainly one for the future.


1.) 10 Nov 2017 08:50:51
Celtic at present have the best scottish players in a lot of positions, aberdeen players have been playing well but over looked. Dorrans hasn't been firing all cylinders like we expected and holt has had a few good games lately. Yes McCrorie is one for the future.
You can't really moan about them and the sheep having the majority of players as they have the better scottish players, up here anyway. Snodgrass is proven, Morrison. meh, Walker hasn't been playing that great, Naismiths time is over next campaign is to far away for him at 31 the now so what's the point in even picking him. Rhodes. he is doing nothing down south now. But again its a friendly with a interm manager. Though they played well in spells.

2.) 10 Nov 2017 09:48:13
My Scotland XI

Gordon (reluctantly)






3.) 10 Nov 2017 10:04:35
Wee_Bear - I like your team but we need someone in beside Souttar or McCrorie with more experience and IMO Ryan Fraser is head and shoulders above James Forrest.

4.) 10 Nov 2017 11:34:02
It was a friendly and an experimental squad, they were right to call up and look at Jack as his form over the last THREE years merits it. Dorrans has been injured and not playing to his potential and Holt has hardly kicked a ball all season. Jack will NOT get a slot in CM before Armstrong, Brown, McGinn out of the Scottish based players. He might thou be considered for RB due to the lack of options there. Young Ross would need a good run in the team to get called up but he's going in the right direction.

5.) 10 Nov 2017 11:38:22
Why do so many people on here think McCrorie should get a call? He has just broken into the Rangers side so let’s just let him try and cement his place there before throwing him into international football.

6.) 10 Nov 2017 15:49:16
I really don't understand why Liam Cooper doesn't get a start, even in a friendly. He has been playing consistently well at a higher standard than Berra and Mulgrew for a couple of seasons now.

He's only 26 and captains his club, would much rather see him given a chance than persisting with mulgrew or playing a left back out of position.

7.) 10 Nov 2017 19:41:32
Doiger you have literally proved to all and sundry you know nothing about football.
Wee bear not a bad team mate, McCrorie for me looks a good prospect but is he ready for it yet, u will know better than I.



07 Nov 2017 11:09:57
McCoist, Warburton, Caixhina - three terrible appointments. Surely the board won't make it four-in-a-row by appointing McInnes?


1.) 07 Nov 2017 13:40:47
warburto was a good appoitment at first and ally got us through the worst years in our history you guys need to remember that!
ped was a risk that didn't pay off

2.) 07 Nov 2017 15:39:23
I must admit I was impressed with Nottingham Forest last week against QPR. They are playing really good, expansive football and had the mom in a wee midfielder called Barrie McKay. Remember him? McKay or Windass? I'll leave that with you

3.) 08 Nov 2017 12:05:17
Poetry Doiger. The board are weak and lack vision with these appointments.



06 Nov 2017 17:10:41
Some managers who are free at the moment:

Big Sam
De Boer

I don't rate McInnes as a future Gers manager. I@d go for Koeman or Big Sam out of that list. Big profile managers.


1.) 06 Nov 2017 17:59:45
My shortlist would be:

Gio van Bronckhorst
Jack Ross
Derek McInnes
Slaven Bilic
Sam Allardyce
Graham Potter

Lots of different backgrounds and all with an element of risk (some more than others) and obviously some would probably not be interested but that’s just my list!

2.) 06 Nov 2017 18:02:55
Would you class Souness as a manager considering he has been out of the game since 2006?

3.) 06 Nov 2017 19:36:54
big sam for me all day long

he’s got the mentality to be at a big club his teams tend to play winning football with some resilience and dig over style if needs be which we desp need to stand up to brenda

4.) 06 Nov 2017 19:57:56
I'd say bilic or big Sam has to be top targets bilic I think will deff like the job.

5.) 06 Nov 2017 20:40:29
In my household Mr Souness is simply the greatest. best player I have ever seen and a great manager for Rangers but even I have to agree. he's too long out of the game and why on earth would he give up SKY.

6.) 07 Nov 2017 02:11:17
Big Koeman of orange for me! big Sam or Pardew after that

7.) 07 Nov 2017 08:09:35

Souness was a great player but how can you possibly say he was better than Messi, Ronaldo or Maradona?

8.) 07 Nov 2017 10:04:08
sparky1320 different player from those two why do you have to nit pick on peoples opinions



06 Nov 2017 08:27:39
After the international break we play Hamilton, Dundee and then Aberdeen home and away. We should be looking at 10 points out of 12 for these 4 games which should put us 2nd in the league. Hibs away in December is another big game. Hopefully a confirmed new manager in by next week. Onwards and upwards Bears!


1.) 07 Nov 2017 02:02:19
Unacceptable, 12 out of 12 is my standards easy, is this how far we have fallen where I assume you see 1 point at pittodrie acceptable.

2.) 07 Nov 2017 02:08:42
Can I ask why you think we should be aiming for 10 points rather than 12?



28 Oct 2017 12:26:18
The Board can't afford to make another mistake with this appointment. Who knows what money will be found to get the right man? We need someone to come in and hit the ground running, so that is where the like of McLeish, Big Sam or Moyes would fit the bill. No to McInnes or Davies for me. I hope Murty oversees a good win today and we have a good run of SPL fixtures in November, so progress might be made before our double-header with Aberdeen.

McLaren did manage Twente Enschede to their first ever Dutch league title in 2009 but I'm not sure if he would be right for us. His profile is certainly as big as Brenda's though

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.

Berg managed Legia Warsaw to the Polish league one season and the Polish cup the next. Not exactly a thrilling managerial record is it? Great player though.

I agree with the comments about Michael O'Neill. He has no club pedigree at all. I've never been in favour of McInnes as manager and having seen ROI's tactics against Denmark last week I wouldn't want MON either! If we can't get a big hitter like Van Bronckhurst, Allardyce or Pardew then we'd be just as well giving Murty a chance until the end of the season, maybe with Barry Ferguson brought in to help.

Corks77. You cite Tommy Burns but he only won one Scottish Cup and one Ayrshire Cup in six years in management of Scottish clubs, i. e. Kilmarnock and Celtic. Didn't exactly set the heather on fire, did he?

McLaren has actually won trophies. e. g. the Dutch league at Twente and managed England, albeit not brilliantly. We could do worse. McInnes is untried and not the big hitter I'd want.
