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



30 Mar 2017 14:48:08
Reading the article in today's Scotsman about Caixhinho 'cracking the whip' in training sounds really encouraging. He looks the part, a bit fierce and he has cancelled the Wednesday day off that Warburton introduced. With a bit of momentum under Caixinho I really do think we can beat Celtic in the cup semi-final. Football is all about confidence and I think our new manager will have brought that back in abundance. Pedro!


1.) 30 Mar 2017 15:23:15
Only time will tell.

2.) 30 Mar 2017 22:16:21
Warburton didn't introduce the Wednesday off thing that's been the way for decades unless they have a game that night

3.) 31 Mar 2017 04:32:50
so far so good from el pedro, a don't really care if he had a wee affiliation with celtic, the past is in the past look at King Kenny

4.) 31 Mar 2017 15:50:45
Dodgier football is not just about confidence you really do need to have ability to go with that confidence Martin Waghorn will never have the ability to pick the ball up back to goal turn and drive forward or link up the play because he doesn't have the skill set to carry it out but he does have the confidence to stick a penalty away each week because that's his ability level.

Joe Garner will never have the ability to stay focused during a game and play as a team as his ability does not allow him to understand that there is no Eye in team but he has the confidence to run about kicking and assaulting opposition players and think that ok.

Barry McKay has ability but does not have the heart to use the gift he has and never will
So the point is that your assessment that Pedro will install confidence is lacking any real substance it's down to ability



16 Mar 2017 16:46:28
Does anyone think that our new manager will give Hardie, Burt and Thompson a chance next season? If we get Rossiter, Kranjcar and Crooks back they will be like new signings.


1.) 16 Mar 2017 19:55:30
A hope he gives the youth a chance but not wan of us nows his plans but will be interesting next season

2.) 17 Mar 2017 00:09:13
I think he'll play the best players available to him, he's got no axe to grind or baggage to bear. It's a fresh canvas.

3.) 16 Mar 2017 23:51:51
I think young Thompson will definitely come into contention next season. Couldn't understand why he didn't figure in MW's plans. Looked a really tidy young player when he first signed from Man U

4.) 17 Mar 2017 00:19:41
I like burt from what I've seen, also a few of the younger guys ashmore, beerman mcrorie but its barjonas that really sticks out to me very tidy midfield player, looks the type that will just keep getting better but I hope anyone who does get the chance is bled in gradually we as fans expect too much from boys at times! Not overly keen on ryan hardie but hopefully prove me wrong

5.) 17 Mar 2017 11:27:30
I'm old enough to remember a very young and slim Denis Law making his debut for Huddersfield Town when only 16 and four years later was playing for Manchester City aged just 20, so I don't get all this stuff about easing young players in gently. Jordan Thompson is 20 now and Burt is 18. If they are good enough they are old enough. Look how many youngsters McCoist ignored and Warburton pretty well did the same. I like the sound of a midfield with Rossiter, Hyndman and Burt playing.

6.) 17 Mar 2017 16:55:23
Derek johnston was 16 when he scored the goal v celtic for league cup win 1970. Age means nothing. Is big Clint too old at 38 to score and then make last ditch tackle don't think so.

7.) 17 Mar 2017 18:17:21
The difference is Huddersfield fans and rangers fans have expectations at opposite ends of the spectrum boys! I've lost count of talents that have been ruined in this country by fans who heap too much pressure on a youngster and have them billed as world beaters after one decent game

8.) 19 Mar 2017 00:10:49
I hope he has the nuts to give some of the youngsters a go, youthful energy, belief and lack of fear is what we need! one or 2 youngster might actually have a major infectious belief that we need! Burt, Gilmour, Robbie McCrorie have all had major teams look at them, Hardie for me looks as if he has that goalscoring knack! not a great player but knows where the goal is ( think McCoist, Boyd, even Dodds frustrating players but goals guarenteed! )



10 Mar 2017 18:14:23
Apparently Caixhina will arrive in time for Sunday's game but not today. I hope he goes in to the dressing room and stirs the players.


1.) 10 Mar 2017 19:28:39
I hope he stays away from the dressing room, it's Murtys time!

2.) 10 Mar 2017 21:11:27
Well said gor at this moment in till Pedro has not goat a say this is murtys time let's hope he enjoys it and so do Wee

3.) 10 Mar 2017 21:14:26
I hope he stays away from Ibrox.

4.) 10 Mar 2017 21:29:56
Who do you want to see rick? As I think he is by far the most exciting out of the names mentioned mcliesh, Davis, McGinnis, wright, Gary rowett no thanks for all of them tbh all Shiite. I'm excited with this guy yes there is a chance it could all go wrong but if you don't take a chance you never succeed for me going with any of the names above is like saying we are happy to stay were we are.

5.) 10 Mar 2017 21:49:13
Yeh good idea Rick, let's bring back Alec or Ali or better than that let's give wee Barry a chance or even Billy, all these good Rangers lads who know how the club works . yeh let's do that!

6.) 10 Mar 2017 21:57:26
It's an away game .

7.) 10 Mar 2017 22:00:32
I hope he plays a 5 3 2 and hits them on the counter with MOH and Barry up front play Wallace in the centre of defence tae take dembelle oot the game wae Hill Wilson Halliday left wingback godson right n a midfield of tav toral n hyndman but let Barry run at brown n get him sent aff

8.) 10 Mar 2017 23:01:29
Well said deano there is to many people on here and the news stating that European managers aren't the answer look at Paul le guen yes he was a disaster but what about dick advocatt if Pedro is using rangers as a steping stone to England then fine but if he wants a decent club he's goat to prove him self and do well with rangers so all use doubters quit slating the guy and get behind him

9.) 10 Mar 2017 23:34:40
Lets all give the guy a chance, we have to remember the past 5 years and it is still going to take time. let's give our full support! We will get ther eventually, we r the glasgow rangers!

10.) 10 Mar 2017 23:43:00
I will welcome any manager who gets to lead this great club. Maybe optimistic but I feel he will get some cash to spend otherwise why would he leave a rich club to take over a club with no resources regardless of how great we are?
I think it's a blessing in disguise being so far behind the tramps in the league. They realised they had to dig deep and go for it after we beat the in the cup and I think the realisation that we are a bit behind now is not lost on the board who have brought an exciting coach with decent credentials on a reported £800k per Annum.
He got to Europa league final as an assistant and to CONCAF Champions league final as a manager and got relegation threatened side to 7th in Portuguese league and Mexican league and cup double so he's no mug.
I know how good Le Guens record was before he took over before you all start lol but seriously I'm positive about the appointment and with a bit of luck we might just gather a bit of momentum to stop the treble in cup tie and/ or beat them at Ibrox to end league undefeated run that's if we don't end that on Sunday.
Got to say we might just sneak it on Sunday, the 2-1 game lto was quite close, it's not like they can win the league on Sunday and after our 3-0 win V Killy our only time we had scored 3 against top flight opposition equaled V St Johnstone then doubled against Hamilton in past 2 games we must a chance of scoring against an overrated side who win with ease due to opposition sitting off and allowing them to attack them.
If you attack them they are vulnerable and beatable 🔴⚪🔵💪🏻

11.) 11 Mar 2017 00:22:29
I welcome the new guy but al be seeing what the odds are on him being away before the turn of the year and sticking £20 on it if it's anymore than 5-1

12.) 11 Mar 2017 13:06:34
Agbroxi yeah i'm sure Dembele would be quaking in his boots at thought of wallace marking him

13.) 11 Mar 2017 12:29:17
Can't believe the Pish McAvennie has come out with, don't know where all this rubbish about a record score for them has come from anyway, they had 2 victories over Motherwell and Accies by 2-0 at home and the media seem to think they'll annihilate us, and if anything we are coming onto a game now, am I missing something here because I simply don't get it.



20 Feb 2017 10:12:47
Leeds boss Gary Monk now strongly linked to be Gers new boss. Good manager previously of Swansea and has Leeds in 5th place in the Championship.


1.) 20 Feb 2017 10:46:16
Why would he come to us if he's in with the chance of taking Leeds back into the Premiership?

Potentially very good manager though.

2.) 20 Feb 2017 10:47:10
Anyone with a current club will cost money in compensation. We are getting deluded. They will bring in McLeish as nothing to pay out. We have to realise our club has no money. Wish we could get a bigger name but I think we need to accept this board will make another arse of things.

3.) 20 Feb 2017 10:56:01
Spurs 1974: Don't be so sure we won't get a manager currently at a club.

4.) 20 Feb 2017 11:43:58
How do we know that major investment isn't on its way? These things take time and it has been rumoured before that big money is heading for Ibrox, whether Red Bull or some other investors.

5.) 20 Feb 2017 13:00:06
Hope you are right genuinely do! But can't help thinking it will be the cheap route as usual with all the rebuilding single fish we keep hearing. Debts are mounting at the club why do you think warburton and Barton really left the club!

6.) 20 Feb 2017 17:33:25
Why do folk keep mentioning Red Bull? RB DO NOT INVEST, THEY BUY! Do you seriously want to support a NEWCO next season? We've listened to other fans 'You're not Rangers any more' for nearly 5 years. If Red Bull buy us we won't be Rangers any more! Is that what we want?

7.) 20 Feb 2017 17:59:32
What total BS rfc5141 you sound like one of them . I don't care if THEY call us a new club we are and always will be rangers

8.) 20 Feb 2017 20:15:15
People not wanting redbull to buy Rangers, don't be so stupid. Rangers have absolutely nothing at the moment so to say you wouldn't accept it is an absolute joke. We need money and we don't seem to be getting it from King

9.) 20 Feb 2017 21:15:20
Monk out of contract in summer, no compo needs paid out if he's out of contract

10.) 20 Feb 2017 21:25:19
Monk only has one year deal at Leeds . I think . so his contract is up in the summer

11.) 20 Feb 2017 23:21:10
Suppose a club fancies a manager already at a club and it would cost £ 2m in compen.
Said manager resigns after his agents hears another club ill give him £ 1m to come to the new club.

I don't believe the managers current club would get a bean.

I know this would involved illegal "tapping up" and I know that football is too ethical a business for such a thing to happen, but, just suppose.

12.) 22 Feb 2017 09:44:57
Looks like Monk is the target in the summer.

So much negativity on here from certain posters. It seems they will never be happy. Warburton's signings were rubbish. I have no problem if Pedro signs players of the calibre of Alves or Pena. Continental Euopean and Latin American have naturally more skill and Alves and Pena look like tough cookies, the type Broonie wouldn't push around. A midfield with Rossiter, Jack and Pena sounds the business. For goodness sake, give Pedro a chance!


1.) 26 May 2017 12:36:32
Agreed Doiger. let's see who ped the ted actually brings in b4 slating him. Anyone believes the record let alone reads it needs their head looked at! Give the man a chance!
We all want the very best to challenge and overtake that mob but its gona take time. Its not wat anyone wants to hear but that's the truth while we r continually hamstrung by ashley. Bears forever not just in the good times! . FIRB

2.) 26 May 2017 21:29:59
At last news seems to be quite positive, yes pena looks to be the player we have needed forma long time, some one who can give Brown a real fight in midfield, the young boy cordosa could be a real aquisition, especially at the price being mentioned, another quality addition in each defence, midfield and attack along with rossiter and kranjcar coming back from lengthy lay offs then next season should be a whole lot better, in PEDRO we trust



22 May 2017 18:34:58
Now that Moyes has left Sunderland Jermain Defoe is to leave too. Could we grab him for a reasonable fee? Don't know about his wages though!


1.) 22 May 2017 18:38:22
More likely he will stay in the premiership

2.) 22 May 2017 19:01:26
He is having talks with Bournmouth at the moment, I don't think this would have happened anyway

3.) 22 May 2017 19:36:32
Sunderland want 6million for defoe. we need 2 make the most of the free transfers like jack and patterson. save a few quid fur 2 centre halfs and a striker thatl put the baw in the net can't depend on kenny miller again

4.) 22 May 2017 19:45:35
He is a free agent. It's a clause in his contact if they got relegated. But it will never happen. He can easily get 50k + a week down south.

5.) 22 May 2017 19:46:38
Ha Defoe can leave Sunderland for free. He's looking for a 6 million sign on fee and 100k a week. Seriously What ****in planet are some of you persons living on

6.) 23 May 2017 00:16:09
Wilson its the same any time any decent player is on a free. A bunch of Rangers fans on here seem to think that everyone wants to play for Rangers even if they drop £30k to £50k a week. Almost every player in Scotland is trying to get to play in the EPL and people on here think plsyers will give that up to play for Rangers the number 3 team in Scotland. Joke!



22 May 2017 07:29:05
Morning Bears. It doesn't make happy reading for us Bears to see Septic plastered all over the newspapers going unbeaten this season in the league, winning six-in-a-row and all the hype by the media. It is still a painful time and the journey has been tough but the real heroes are the Rangers fans who have stuck by the club through these dark years. We need to emerge from the gloom next season and surely there must be some money men out there who can help with the investment required? I'm sick to death of reading all about that lot every day and how well they are doing. It is our turn now. My only consolation is that living in the south of England, I don't have to run the gauntlet of an Septic fans down here as there are few of them! Onwards and upwards.


1.) 22 May 2017 09:45:25
I disagree regarding the bit about "money men" We don't want someone to fund our every move, sugar daddies are great until they go screw this I'm losing too much money and walk away. Rangers FC can be self sufficient. Time and patience is required, let's see what Pedro can do. Next year if we finish 2nd within 15 points of Celtic it is a massive improvement, then build upon it from there.

2.) 22 May 2017 10:44:09
onlyshowaround. I know what you mean about 'money men' and the club needs to be cautious but surely if your target is to be 2nd and 15 points behind Celtic next season that is very negative? Celtic aren't that good. They've got momentum with Rodgers as manager and without us breathing down their necks. Aberdeen were never going to sustain a challenge. Get some of the quality signings that are being rumoured and we can get much closer than that.

3.) 22 May 2017 11:32:26
Doiger to go from 67 points to a potential 91 points in just one season is a big jump. Baby steps mate baby steps.

4.) 22 May 2017 10:55:51
it will be back to normal season 17/ 18
Buddy don't worry be happy 😊

5.) 22 May 2017 11:10:58
Aiming for second is a joke. Top a the league should always be our target,

6.) 22 May 2017 11:54:44
Rangers are in no position to challengea celtic team that has won 34 league games thus season.

7.) 22 May 2017 12:23:40
let's wait until they lose a domestic game under brenda before start branding them not that good.

8.) 23 May 2017 13:30:22
yes financially we are nowhere near them but that doesn't mean we can't catch them on the park just need the right signings and like I've said time and time again if we beat the rest then its down to the old firm games and if both teams have a winning mentality going into those old firm fixtures then we could have proper old firm games back and the league would be decided in those games. so to clarify we only need to be better than the rest consistantly to be up there fighting for the title instead of handing it to them winners is what we need mixed with a few prospects.



21 May 2017 12:05:38
Good to see more kids getting a chance today with nothing at stake. Baronjas, Aidan Wilson, Bates and Beerman all start and a couple of Academy youngsters on the bench. No great expectations today but let's see how they do.


1.) 21 May 2017 17:07:36
The only hope Rangers have got of getting close to Celtic in next 3 years is playing youth. Celtic will lose players. Depends on who they replace them with but Rangers will never outspend them and Pedro is not as good as BR so it has to be play youth and see if the young guns can get thst spirit together to win.

2.) 21 May 2017 18:01:58
We won't get near them next season unless we start beating everyone else home and away, the matches against them will take care of themselves

3.) 21 May 2017 18:22:46
Whats the formation?
My fotmob app shows a 4-3-3! With Barjonas on the left of a front 3! Surely this is wrong and by sounds of it, its a 4-2-3-1 or 4-1-3-2?
Absolutely brilliant to see the young lads getting game time.
Hope they have a good game and they can show Caixinha that they are ones to watch.
All I want now is for Atayaki to get on. Hopefully a good 1/ 2 hr and I he will score ot definitely get an assist on top of creating



20 May 2017 09:40:32
Pedro is going to announce the new signings next week and confirm who will be staying and leaving from the existing squad. Interesting week ahead! Also, Lennon and Nicholas slagging Pedro off. What a bloody cheek! A very mediocre Hibs team will struggle next season and Nicholas was the most overrated player I've ever seen! I smell their fear.


1.) 20 May 2017 11:10:03

2.) 20 May 2017 11:39:40

Nicholas is an utter clown and it's embarrassing watching the sky sports centre when he is on it. Him, Thompson and Merson are all utter tossers god knows how Jeff Sterling puts up with all 3?

4.) 20 May 2017 12:50:11

From what I've read about Carlos Pena I think he would be a very good signing. Tough, Latin American midfielder and good on the ball and alongside Rossiter and Kranjcar it sounds great!

Izquierdoz and Abella sound just the type of tough defenders we need. They would be very good signings in my view. Add Alves and Sumaila and they would transform the team.

Can't blame the boy or his parents. Probably a good signing-on fee and decent wages given his age. Money seems to rule in football these days but as others have commented, I fear he will disappear down there never to be seen again.

I don't agree with signing bits and pieces of other SPL teams who were all not good enough to get anywhere near celtic and putting them in our team! Jack and Patterson maybe and maybe Gauld if he is being released but Kranjcar can be a good player to have even if he doesn't play every game or plays for part of games. We've Rossiter to come back, just like a new signing and I like the notion of new signings like the Mexican midfielder Carlos Pena and Bruno Alves. Three or four of the youngsters who have been given a chance should in the first team squad including young Hardie who has been out on loan and I'd also take Naismith back. I agree with you about Windass and feel he should be given a run. Finally, I'd keep Garner as I think he can score with a better midfield behind him.

Don't know what his point is but I'd make a point. At that time Celtic were obviously in the ascendancy but Rangers too had a very, very good team which in another era would have done the 9-in-a-row themselves. For Glasgow to have two teams in the finals of the two big European competitions in 1967 was amazing and we went on to win our European trophy in 1972.
