Mark Warburton clear favourite for the Fulham job.

Hope and think he will stay with us but this, unlike jobs like Liverpool, seems a realistic possibility.

Any thoughts bears?

Naz

1.) 30 Nov 2015 18:48:29
Warburton has already assured all Rangers fans that he is here for the long haul. He has a job here and is working hard to get us back to the top and obviously there will be admirers of him because of the great job he is doing but I'm sure he will stay.


2.) 30 Nov 2015 20:13:18
He is a man of honour and will stay at least to the summer, I reconQPR are holding out for him in a few years, once he sorts us out he would want back to the smoke for sake of his family, we got him for a few heras so let's enjoy.


3.) 30 Nov 2015 19:15:28
Naz why would he go to Fulham? Because they are a london club and his family are in london, far to little a job for him, he said he will be here until we reach the champions league final, although we know this was an of the cuff remark by him I think he will be here for years yet, I certainly hope so, as the man knows what he wants for our club.


4.) 01 Dec 2015 00:18:13
Aye he's seems to be a pretty sound and honourable enough sort of guy so I would expect him to at least see his contract out. You never know either, this club has a funny old way of getting under your skin and becoming part of you. In a year or so he might just be true blue like the rest of us eejits and want to stay on for the long haul. He's done alright so far.


5.) 01 Dec 2015 09:34:58
Well he was asked yesterday when he would consider the "job done" at Ibrox and his reply was when we get to Champions League Final. So i reckon he will be here for another three years :)


6.) 01 Dec 2015 10:22:10
getting pretty bored of these ridiculous rumours every time there's a managers job somewhere.


7.) 01 Dec 2015 11:07:53
It's not a ridiculous rumour, he's the odds on favourite, I hope he gets linked with a few more clubs in the next 3 yrs, because it will mean he's doing well for us.


8.) 01 Dec 2015 15:00:20
it is ridiculous. he's going nowhere.


9.) 01 Dec 2015 20:41:39
The bookies have him as favourite, they don't get it wrong too often. He speaks well, and did seem to choose his words quite carefully when asked yesterday. Fulham do appear to think it's a possibility and have made their intentions clear.

Personally I don't think it will happen. He has spoken of the challenge of restoring rangers and does seem to relish it. Fulham would offer a bigger playing budget but realistically the best they can hope for is promotion then a real struggle in the premiership. And if he was to fail to get promoted then he would be one of the many managerial casualties he spoke of yesterday.

But let's be honest here guys and not get carried away. So far has he done anything at ibrox beyond what should be expected? A firm no.

Too many fans are using the pathetic last season as a yard stick. The reality is we are playing against a very low standard of opposition with tiny playing budgets. We are beginning to really struggle to break these teams down. The January transfer window can't come soon enough as we desperately need a cutting edge. We are far too predictable, one paced, and very frustrating to watch.

We should also be honest, things are not as Rosie as many claim. HIbs have real momentum and are a real danger unless we get out act together.


10.) 01 Dec 2015 18:00:32
He ain't going any where fast. He is staying.


11.) 01 Dec 2015 20:53:26
Spot on he would need to prove himself at a higher level than the Scottish championship, with a far higher budget than any other team, before even a division one team in England would be interested.


12.) 01 Dec 2015 23:01:43
Frustrating to watch luigi?
Had to watch tonight's game on TV and I was thoroughly entertained second half. Lots of lovely passing and wee flicks and lay offs etc. Agree we are one paced, 100 mph though!
Teams now just sit back and try to soak it up, a bit like a boxer that knows he's onto a hiding, if I may use that analogy, to hopefully then hit us on the break. I feel teams have sussed us out as last season they could've had a go but this season they've realised that by doing that they get spanked and now just sit back. We are now a completely different prospect to the last few seasons and now they know it, they don't fancy it. The, "It's only Rangers, " attitude has now been replaced by, "Aw naw, how many are we gonnae get pumped by? "


13.) 01 Dec 2015 22:50:01
Fab1 for the very first time I agree with your comment above, I even posted the same on the banter site before I seen your post, so for a first time we are agreed on something, lol.


14.) 02 Dec 2015 14:12:57
Pieandbovril if you watched the game then you should know what I'm talking about. The first half was very very poor and was very frustrating, like many of our recent performances.

Thank goodness we got a quick goal in the second half, but the scorline was a bit unfair on them. They had the best chance of first half and could easily of had a penalty (ball challenge) .

Pretty much every football pundit seems to share my view on this, and MW post match interview expressed his disappointment in the frustrating slow play in the first half. Suppose you know better?

In terms of the sea change in attitude you speak of from the opposition. Please stop using last seasons pathetic failure (IMO one of the most pathetic failures in world football history) as a yard stick. These teams are of a very, very low standard with tiny playing budgets. Struggling to break down this level of opposition is frustrating, MW was clearly frustrated in the first half. A point made in near every match report.

If we hold off hibs challenge (I'm afraid that is an if) then we need to improve vastly over the summer to come close to a top six finish (no chance of a realistic title challenge) , on current ability we are nowhere close. an uncomfortable truth.


15.) 02 Dec 2015 07:55:48
It wasn't a dig billy, I'm just being honest, yes he is obviously a far superior manager than ally but at the moment he is only doing the same job any decent manager worth his salt would be doing, nothing extraordinary that would make any English Premier or championship team sit up and take notice, and yes before you say it Ronnie is in exactly the same boat .


16.) 02 Dec 2015 10:43:42
Pieandbovril don't forget while your guys were over at Murray park ( lol ) getting massages and being fed chicken and pasta yesterday lunchtime, the Dumbarton boys were finishing there shift at there day jobs, I know this for a fact because I work in the same building as one of them, his answer when I asked him if he was looking forward to the game was " no cannae be arsed tonight, its pissing down and I'm not finished here till half three " says it all about half the teams your up against this year.


 

 

11 Sep 2015 17:46:13
Have I got this right. Dave King wants to take Oldco out of liquidation and pay creditors maybe 50p or 60p in the pound.

This being a man who openly wanted liquidation rather than administration. And who also claims to be a major creditor?

Naz

1.) 11 Sep 2015 18:46:31
Whats your point?
As a supporter liquidation was a sensible option at the time. Remember the BIG tax case was hovering around.

He was undoubtedly a creditor so would have two views on the situation.


2.) 11 Sep 2015 19:41:15
I am just baffled if all is well in the rangers just now why would king feel the need to even bring this up up? They are playing the best football of any team on the planet the new manager has skills and knowledge beyond the fergusons and mourinhos of the world.

So why try to resurrect the liquidated club if all is well. Or if whilst doing his due diligence they have realised it is actually as we all know a new club or the sfa have confirmed to him it is the new club formed in 2012 and fearing the fans backlash when thus is finally confirmed tries this I will buy the liquidated rangers "the traditional rangers " to stop the future riots in the streets and protest marches to hampden??


3.) 11 Sep 2015 23:35:04
I think it only right the people who ended up losing money from the liquidation get as much of their money back that they were due.

I for one think this is a good thing and also shows that we are no longer being taken for a ride by spivs while also regaining a bit of pride and respect by righting a few wrongs done by Whyte and SDM.

If it's viable and can be achieved why not.

I have no interest or do I care about the new club, old club patter that goes about. All I know it's still the same club I grew up following since I was a kid and while its been a rough time over the last few years I still love watching rangers play, maybe more now than ever. All the crap should have taught us all never to take success for granted.


4.) 11 Sep 2015 22:42:05
Naz you missed Dave kings main point, if we collect the money that was taking from U.S. illegally then people would probably be paid 100 p in the pound, we have now got hmrc by the stones IMHO.


5.) 12 Sep 2015 10:27:22
Liquidation of the oldco at that time was required to protect the football club.

Now that the truth is all unravelling I think it would be a good gesture to use the money coming in from the court cases to pay creditors 60-100p on the pound, take the old company out of liquidation and reunite the club with the old company.

Everyone's a winner, it makes sense and draws a line under the years of sabotage under the running of Loyds bank, Craig White, Charles Green and all the other corporate vandals who tried to take advantage of the "big tax case" which was hanging over us at the time.

55 is coming


6.) 12 sep 2015 11:23:43
santa and northger, you are right.
it is good to do something more than you have to. it draws a clear line between the spivs and where we are now (and indeed used to be all the time).
only dk will know why as regards the timing.


7.) 12 Sep 2015 22:49:51
Bigp did you actually just say Warburton has skills and knowledge beyond fergie and mourinho !!! I'm enjoying the football and I think we are going places but mate tuck your neck in and put a leish on it that's a riddy 5 ggames into the championship

Ryan Jack to start tonight against the Netherlands. Good luck to the lad and hopefully Kris Boyd's negativity spurs him on.

Naz

1.) 09 Nov 2017 15:36:09
Agree, Boyd although once upon a time a great player for Rangers is now an utter tosser. Both him and Ferguson a disgrace to the club.


2.) 09 Nov 2017 17:18:41
What’s fergie done?


3.) 09 Nov 2017 18:17:19

4.) 09 Nov 2017 19:16:03
At RB tho? Has he played there before?


5.) 10 Nov 2017 01:54:20
Ally I believe he broke into the sheep squad at RB. CDM’s often cover full backs during games as well mind, that’s why defensive mids are used there I’m absence of first choice full backs.

Tbh him and Tierney played excellent I thought? Midfield was poor.


6.) 10 Nov 2017 06:25:53
He’s getting booed by an element of the Scotland fans

Can someone explain to me how Caxinha could have found out Kenny Miller was leaking to the press?

Naz

Who says he has found out kenny leaked stuff to the press?


 

 

24 May 2017 12:25:26
Just wondered if anybody remembers the 1967-68 season where we remained undefeated in the league until the very last day.

I heard my dad talking about it years ago and if I remember correctly Rangers were only beaten by Aberdeen in the closing minutes of the final game of the season.

A brilliant achievement all the same at a time when Scottish football was on a high.

Naz

1.) 24 May 2017 13:00:41
whats your point?


2.) 24 May 2017 13:23:16
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.


3.) 24 May 2017 14:02:50
I will make another point . it will never be repeated


4.) 24 May 2017 15:18:24
Rangers may have only been beaten once but they drew 5 times and Celtic still won the league?


5.) 24 May 2017 15:52:52
My memories are that we had the jitters. We drew with Morton 3-3 and to crown it all our goal keeper against Aberdeen was Gerhard Neef who had a stinker and we lost 3-2.


6.) 24 May 2017 19:34:20
ekgers your memory is spot on was at the game neef had a howler. We drew too many games that year.


7.) 25 May 2017 00:04:04
Real memory lane stuff here tonight. My memory of that squad was that we had 3 goalkeepers none of whom inspired great confidence: Billy Ritchie, Norrie Martin and Gerry Neef.


8.) 25 May 2017 09:40:39
Cheers guys. I was only a kid at the time and not yet going to games but I suspect that that Rangers team would have possessed much more talent than the current unbeaten Celtic team.


9.) 25 May 2017 13:22:43
Very good Naz pity they couldn't have managed the whole season must have bottled it in the last game. Did you go unbeaten in the cups that season too?


10.) 25 May 2017 13:28:50
graham he is just wondering u know people are allowed to ask questions if u don't want to know about it don't reply, no need for the what your point statement .

and naz i remember the last time celtic went undefeated in the league they lost the league by something like 12/ 15 points to us but they had about 13 draws or something ridiculous like that


11.) 26 May 2017 11:40:19
Davie White was the manager and I remember him being interviewed after the last game when we lost to the sheep. He was shocked at the pelters he and the players received from the fans at the final whistle.


 

 

14 May 2017 13:31:38
Interesting news about taking a year out from the Development League. Just hope the money is made available to play against teams from England and the continent on as regular a basis as possible.

Is this possible as Chelsea, Man Utd etc will involved in the English Development League.

Naz

1.) 14 May 2017 14:45:09
Yeah it looks like a great move from the guys in the youth department. Would be great to see some of the young lads like Zac Rudden and Jack Thomson develop against similar aged quality players, rather being farmed out on loan to St Mirren and end up going backwards


2.) 14 May 2017 15:06:51
I'm reading about potential signings but my concern is that we have to sell before we buy. I'm not a fan of King to be honest but I really do hope he comes up with the funding we hugely crave. This season for me has been a bit embarrassing regarding the points difference between us and Aberdeen and Celtic. King has to come good. What's his plan before season ticket money is due?


3.) 14 May 2017 15:34:51
Gor, I reckon that there is more chance of finding Lord Lucan and Shergar than seeing King invest what is needed in Rangers this summer, (and the Investment really needs to come in June before the Europa Cup) . I will be surprised if Pedro secures all of his top targets since I keep reading that most of the overseas contingent that he has been rumoured to be interested in are under contract.

Only time will tell but if by mid June we haven't secured two new quality defenders and two quality midfield players, (and I am not talking about players from Motherwell), then I would suggest that the writing is on the wall for the new season.


4.) 14 May 2017 15:42:06
I'm no king fan he really has to come through for us and not spin us a line in order to sell season tickets but I fear were going to get a small amount to rebuild this shambles of a squad


5.) 14 May 2017 16:12:17
TOMUSA, An honest post, we're on the same wavelength. I hear King has been working behind the scenes desperately looking for investment but what I gather is that won't happen unless he steps down. Whether that's true or not only time will tell.


6.) 14 May 2017 16:16:25
King is not going to invest much in the squad. Maybe £2mill including any money raised Fromm sales. So that's not going to go too far. Pedro has been talking up his previous contacts that played for him in Mexico and Quatar. So far looks like zero uptake. I am telling everyone now, this is the Portuguese version of Ronnie Dalia. Statements like having the best squad in Scotland were the first signs he was talking nonesense. Now he gives the board a hit list of 12, and says it's not difficult to move players on and you don't need to give players money to persuade them to sign up for Rangers. So all he is doing is digging a hole for himself. So next season the fight is on for 2nd place at best. Wonder how many season tickets will get sold? Oh and it's good to see Kenny Miller already stabbing Pedro in the back trying to line himself up as next manager. Another b*** s****r.


7.) 14 May 2017 17:32:47
Gor, I have heard the same story here in Texas from guys that I know. It would appear that Mr. King is struggling to secure any meaningful investment and he does appear to be the problem! It will be interesting to see how he performs iat NARS although I suspect that it will just be another round of asking the fans to spend their hard earned cash while he keeps his $millions firmly in his pocket!


8.) 14 May 2017 18:33:01
Fear that from now until the seeable future were now playing for second while Celtic take in millions from champions league and were feeding of scraps


9.) 15 May 2017 08:02:52
Bawbag that's the way it's going to be for few years we never going to stop 10 in a row and the sooner we all realise that the mess is that bad the better


10.) 15 May 2017 14:59:09
If they played there home games at ibrox, I think they would get a decent crowd, do they play the games at Murray park.

"I'm reading in the paper Celtic are on a record-breaking run. If they won four games less, they would be 13 ahead. If we had won one of our games it would be 10."

Mark Warburton

For a man who is supposedly the smartest manager in Scottish football, Warbs hasn't half been talking a load of mince over the past few weeks. Are we actually expected to take some solace from that statement?

Naz

1.) 03 Feb 2017 12:44:49
Did he actually say that naz.


2.) 03 Feb 2017 16:02:01
Reported word for word from his press conference yesterday by several papers.

And for a guy that worked in the city apparently he strangely gets mixed up with some basic arithmetic -

If Celtic had lost 4 more games that would be 12 points but he says 'If they won four games less' meaning the games could all have been drawn that would mean 8 points.


3.) 03 Feb 2017 16:15:40
Cheers naz


4.) 04 Feb 2017 12:30:06
I read that as well mate, i must admit i couldn't actually believe what i was reading. its fair to say he isn't exactly dealing with the pressure too well

Good to see the board keeping an ex manager with no position at Ibrox now up to date with such financial details. Especially after him not bothering to cast a vital vote at last year's AGM that could have helped the club raise a significant amount of money.

Yeah right.

Ian McColl suggested the Ross Jack part of this on Sportsound last night.

If we did go in for McInnes and if he accepted it would make perfect sense to me. In fact when Caxinha was still in charge he was one of the names I mentioned that I would prefer to see as Rangers manager albeit that could been seen as faint praise.

Oh and Kenny McIntyre suggested that it would take far less than the £1.5 million being bandied around to bring McInnes to Ibrox.

"The Rangers manager alleged that Wright had been fed team news from his camp ahead of the final game of last season, which supposedly led to a delayed training session specifically designed to counter Gers’ threats. "

Tommy Wright denies this totally and I believe him. No problem with Caxinha comparing St Johnstone with Morton.

McInnes must be mightily pashed off that the board paid off the Portuguese joker's side in Qatar quickly enough and let him spend around £8 mil.

Just imagine if the board had did the same for McInnes and where we might be now. Definitely not sitting in 4th place and out of Europe against a pub team.

He is obviously interested in the job or he would have ruled himself out but I'm not 100% sure he would want to come without guarantees.

I hear a lot of fans saying that if we wanted McInnes we'd have been in touch by now but he must still think it could happen or he would have simply told the press conference that he was not interested in the Rangers job and would be managing Aberdeen into the foreseeable future.

Saying that I think my tenner on Murty a fortnight ago is looking like a good bet at 12/ 1. You'll not get odds anywhere near that now on him.

Didn't see the full game but from what I did see Jack certainly looked pretty decent. Hoping his form for Rangers will improve with whoever is chosen as new manager.
