If the reports are true and we do sign emerson hyndman on loan again, i wonder if that's the sign, that we're not signing greg docherty! Both hyndman and docherty are similar box to box midfielders, with an eye for goal!

I really like both these players but i just don't think murty will sign both! If we had a chance of securing the permanent signing of hyndman, then i'd take him over docherty, but i doubt very much that bournemouth would allow us any chance of eventually signing hyndman permanently! His transfer fee would also be out our reach!

So ED, if you don't mind mate, can you set up a poll for our supporters on this subject, ie. which box to box midfielder would you prefer rangers to sign, emerson hyndman or greg docherty? Cheers ED, if you don't mind!

Rangers Midfielder Poll

1.) 17 Jan 2018 20:56:54
I would rather have docherty

2.) 17 Jan 2018 21:17:12
Coldo your spot on get Docherty in “rangers don’t let this one get away”, the boy Hyndman looked good on the ball at times but no dig, a feel Docherty is a powerful player, a mean Hyndman if I can remember last time playing against ra Celik went in to hiding mode, we need a bit a steel in there! Some one that will take the ball and power on with it!

3.) 17 Jan 2018 21:18:58
Emerson Hyndman was poor for us first time around. So poor he couldn't force his way into Bournemouth's plans either.

Absolutely 100% don't want him.

4.) 17 Jan 2018 21:39:37
I don't want Hyndman on loan either but how can you say he was poor?! Docherty all the way for me

5.) 17 Jan 2018 21:57:15
we need a midfielder with a physical presence not hyndman pointless deal if we bring him in

6.) 17 Jan 2018 22:01:57
I think you’re being a bit harsh saying Hyndman was poor. He was one of our best players at the time of I remember correctly.

7.) 17 Jan 2018 22:23:25
Docherty gets my vote.

8.) 17 Jan 2018 23:19:15
Hyndman gets my vote. was brilliant against Celtic at parkhead the 1-1 game and people are sayn he was poor. 😌



10 Jan 2018 23:10:17
With us now having in place, the DOF structure, i honestly now think, that with the coaches we now have within auchenhowie, that our future manager's will be appointed from within!

Liverpool successfully appointed their manager's from within, in the 70's and 80's! This brings me on to my main debate/ topic, i'd like to throw out there, to all fellow bears! What do you think of the chances of kevin thomson, becoming the rangers manager, a few years down the line?

I myself, think KT has a very good, realistic chance, of becoming our manager, especially under our model structure, of having a DOF! Just the way it has fallen into place and worked for our current manager, graeme murty! I truly think kevin thomson, has all the attributes required, to work under this structure and become the rangers manager/ head coach!

He's already held in high regard as a coach, allbeit with the young kids! Under this DOF structure, it would make a lot of sense, to promote from within, as the likes of KT, would know the full club, structure,
model and players, all the way from the very young kids, to the first team! If he's a good enough coach, why not!


1.) 11 Jan 2018 06:02:33
I like KT. a lot, think its a fantastic appointment with all the work he has done with his own youth academy, certainly do think he's got what it takes

2.) 11 Jan 2018 08:24:31
Why did you pick KT. He's not even took a session yet with the under 13's and you have got him a future manager. What about all the other youth coaches that have been doing this for years? Billy Kirkwood for example. What about our Captain who trains a senior team in his spare time! Not saying KT won't go on to be a top man but he has just started and think you may be jumping the gun a little early.

3.) 11 Jan 2018 08:45:51
I think it would be a great system to train future coaches and managers with the youth teams and promote them accordingly to more senior positions and eventually the best of these coaches will become assistant manager then manager in theory it is an excellent system

4.) 11 Jan 2018 09:22:35
great intention agbroxi, but unless there is a change in ownership, it will never happen.
The opportunity to re-write the whole club structure and do exactly as you suggest was there in 2012 when it all went pear-shaped.
Build from youth and take the hits. Maybe accept that promotion would take a wee bit longer. But, once at the top, the system would be established with future players/ sell-ons coming through. But, the chance was lost as they old guard carried-on as usual. (3 of them are still running the show and showing why 2012 happened)

5.) 11 Jan 2018 10:22:21
I think we missed a trick to do this when we first came up or in the first division the board neglected the coaches abd scouting side where that should have been priorty.
it would be good to promote withing but come the summer i can see david king sanction another spending spree and possibley manager change unless murty has a great second half to the season.
king business plan from day one has been to get in the champions leauge to make the club stable.
When really it should been invest in the infrastructure scouts coaches and young players with potenial and sell them on and aim for the europa leauge group stage that would a more acheivable business plan.

6.) 11 Jan 2018 11:07:27
KT has been coaching for about a year. Calm down.

We need to stop with this 'highly rated' nonsense as well. Rated by who? Nobody knows

7.) 11 Jan 2018 11:58:47
KT has only recently started coaching, plus he was always injured when he was at Rangers, so i don't really get the excitement i'm afraid. Seems like a good guy though

8.) 11 Jan 2018 12:43:54
How does him being injured a lot as a player affect his ability as a coach? Some of this patter is laughable. Completely agree it’s too soon for KT, nobody knows what kind of coach he is yet probably the guy himself, jumped the gun again here. Everyone is talking about future managers and coaches let’s get behind the one we have now!

9.) 11 Jan 2018 17:46:07
I understand the point you are trying to make supercoop but come on, I think our new U13s coach has a long long way to go

10.) 11 Jan 2018 17:57:16
I think that rangers should promote within up to u21's and then at that point they should let coaches go out and prove themselves at the top level. Then if successful bring them back home again where they would obviously know the club but would also have experience of managing a club successfully. Otherwise would be too high risk.

11.) 11 Jan 2018 20:38:12
Like others I agree with the principle you are promoting, Supercooper but whether Kevin Thomson has what it takes to be Rangers manager one day it's way too soon to say. I recently listened to him talking to Davie Edgar on the Heart and Hand Podcast and he sounds like a very decent, dedicated, hard working guy and as Murty said he never expected to be Rangers manager so I suppose you never know.

12.) 12 Jan 2018 00:39:25
The next few years would have to be a complete failure, otherwise why would we change managers for KT?

13.) 12 Jan 2018 00:57:20
Spot on Dunbar. Coop what is your over obsession all about with KT lol. I do get what your saying about the system, but he's had no experienece yet so how can you say this based on his attributes. Fair enough if you think he's a top bloke but come on a bit premature?

14.) 12 Jan 2018 01:02:03
Good post Supercoop and certainly a long term vision and operating model worthy of further consideration. I also like KT and as a pundit he has certainly been balanced in his comments about the club. Let’s see how he shapes up with the young lads over the next 24 months.

15.) 12 Jan 2018 01:03:31
I will be shocked if Kevin Thompson gets the nod. Just got a coaching role and you think he's going to be head coach. Makes no sense. He's running his own academy and will be doing this part time. Down the line maybe but would be another cathro just now.

16.) 12 Jan 2018 01:13:08

murty will be the new manager - we cannot attract anyone else suitable based on funds on offer

17.) 12 Jan 2018 01:15:28
Yip, I don't think being injured as a coach/ manager is so much of a problem! !

I like the idea of this model! It would be great to see it implemented properly

18.) 12 Jan 2018 01:17:47
This director of football nonsense is a waste of a good wage and in the long run isn’t going to work because he is getting involved in the managers job which shouldn’t be happening and is one of main reasons we didn’t get our first choice manager because after Mark Allen saying that if the manager wants to sign a player but he thinks there is a guy in the academy who he feels in 18 months time will be able to play in the first team then that’s the route we will be going down. That’s not his job to decide which guys from the academy go into the first team squad, it’s the managers job and it’s not going to work out having this setup.



02 Jan 2018 08:28:59
According to this morning's daily mail, its reporting that rangers are very close, to signing brighton winger, jamie murphy, for around 1million quid! Like i've said on here before, murphy would be a fantastic signing for us and great value with the protracted fee and his level of ability and experience! Not to mention that he's still only 28 years old, with his peak years ahead of him! It would be a terrific signing for us, in every way! He's a massive bluenose into the bargain! I really hope we get jamie murphy! This guy when he was at motherwell, still wanted to sign for us,
his boyhood idols, even when were in division 3,but rangers couldn't afford it at the time!


1.) 02 Jan 2018 10:11:56
A much better player that Jamie Walker, and to think Hearts wanted about the same fee for him on the last year of his contract, joke! Glad we didn't give in to them, don't rate him anyways.

(Btw, it was because Rangers had a transfer embargo for 2 seasons, not because we couldn't afford him, we couldn't sign anybody tied down to a club, only free transfers) .

2.) 02 Jan 2018 10:45:38
If true, and the news that Preston are coming back to the table with a 7 figure bid for Windass this would be good business for all. Still think we need a number 10 though and if the reports re Naismith are true (he’s going to Killie for next to no money) I’m shocked we wouldn’t see value in bringing him back.

3.) 02 Jan 2018 10:55:02
Someone or more most be leaving for us to afford a million fee. As I've informed this site on many occasions we need £7.2m to get us to summer of 2019 and the only director that is putting up the money is Dave King can't actually see him finding another million for JM while he looking for £11m plus to get the takeover panel off his back

4.) 02 Jan 2018 11:07:04
Steven naismith has had his time in the sun with rangers! Don't want him back anywhere near glasgow rangers again! We must move on from him, let him go to kilmarnock! He wasn't slow in leaving us and saying what he said in his presser with whittaker, regarding the club he was supposed to care deeply about! He made his bed! After all our club was brilliant with him through 2 serious cruciate injuries! Short memories that guy!

5.) 02 Jan 2018 11:25:17
Spot on supercoops, my sentiments exactly!

6.) 02 Jan 2018 11:50:07
Jamie Murphy was a done deal in early Dec apparently - no doubt will be official in due course.

7.) 02 Jan 2018 12:39:56
If it is true and windass is making way for murphy for the same fee then it is dispointing should be commanding at least 1.5 for windass if not keep him we are short on strikers as it is.

8.) 02 Jan 2018 13:37:48
Don't rate murphy

9.) 02 Jan 2018 13:42:03
I agree we should be squeezing between 1.5-2million quid from any english club, wishing to buy josh windass! I personally would sell windass for the amount i stated and jamie murphy is far better player and possible replacement, for windass!

10.) 02 Jan 2018 15:28:48
Don't see Naismith going to Killie.
2 cruciate injuries and going to play every other week on their pitch?

11.) 02 Jan 2018 15:53:58
I think Naismith would be brilliant with Morelos IF he could stay fit

12.) 02 Jan 2018 19:44:33
I would go for McLean and walker now on pre-contracts.

13.) 02 Jan 2018 20:25:53
Mcc the knife! A wee question for you mate, nothing personal, just a question! Who's place in the team do you think jamie walker would take mate? Daniel candeias as far as i'm concerned is better than walker and if we are lucky enough to be able to sign jamie murphy, then he's streets ahead of walker! Most of the time i've seen jamie walker playing, i haven't been impressed with him in the slightest! From my own personal view, i wouldn't want rangers to sign him!

14.) 02 Jan 2018 20:58:09
Don’t think we can have enough quality players, would rather have them in our ranks and that would be up to them to prove they are better.

15.) 02 Jan 2018 23:40:41
Walker and McLean may not take anyone's place in the team but they would definitely be good squad players. And without them the other teams would be weakened. Win win in my eyes.

16.) 03 Jan 2018 00:20:22
I think walker and Maclean would be great squad players and it keeps first team players on their toes. Competition for places is how a successful team is run.

17.) 03 Jan 2018 00:38:19
We should sign Murphy and Naismith and at £1m for the pair would represent a great piece of business. The boy Naismith has expressed his views, fully explained his position and owes us nothing. He would be a star for us and would walk into the current team.

18.) 03 Jan 2018 00:41:15
How come Naismith gets it so hard yet The Cardigan himself wished the "new club" all the success gets away with it.

19.) 03 Jan 2018 00:59:42
If you can believe Sky Sports we are nowhere near reaching agreement on a fee for Murphy, the two clubs are miles apart on his valuation, sound familiar? . The players fly out on Saturday to Florida let's pray we have a good signing or two before the team jets out.

20.) 03 Jan 2018 08:29:58
Never had to ask someone for forgivness lads? Well done on a pefect life. Naismith is a quality player and if he scored the winner at Ibrox against Celtic youd forgive him fast enough. he's better than anything we have now. saying no to him if free/ cheap would be stubborn.

21.) 03 Jan 2018 09:01:43
Windass taking up the CAM position where Kranjcars was could be a good move offloading Dalcio and Aaron Nemane would also be good

22.) 03 Jan 2018 09:33:09

There are some things that you can say that you just can’t forgive. Naismith didn’t need to hold a press conference and declare Rangers dead. Disgraceful thing to say especially from someone who was supposed to suppprt the club. Can you imagine the abuse Lennon would have got if he had said that?

23.) 03 Jan 2018 14:23:36
Not sure where u get your info from supercoop regarding Jamie Murphy being a massive bluenose as u couldn't be further from the truth. I personally know Jamie through his ex girlfriend when he was at motherwell and has shown deep hatred towards our club. Just hope he has grown up since then as I think he would be a great signing.



12 Dec 2017 08:32:32
Have to admit fellow bears, that like scobierfc, i've also heard from a former rangers director, that Steve McClaren is and always has been very much in the running, to be our new manager! What i've been told is that our DOF Mark Allen, especially rates and is pushing the board of directors, to appoint Steve McClaren! Allen rates McClaren as a terrific coach and perfect for the role, as working hand in hand with a DOF! Time will tell i suppose!


1.) 12 Dec 2017 09:45:16
Super i heard this about a month ago that allen wanted him, i'm not sure, what do we do, have faith in allen who by all means is a well respected and connected dof, i'm just not sure about McLaren but i can see some advantages

2.) 12 Dec 2017 15:53:10
McLaren is so good none of the numerous English sides that are or were recently managerless have appointed him or publicly shown interest through media sources.

I have no idea who the answer is to provide all the solutions to our inadequacies, however if GM can keep us winning in the mean time a higher league position with a fighting chance of title 55 then the list will surely grow on DK table.

3.) 12 Dec 2017 17:44:31
Mark Allan is a weird one for me. He never been a DOF before, he was the head youth coach at Man City and left under a shadow. Man City can't sign any youth players for 2 years and got a big fine. Hope we don't go down the Mc Claren route.



10 Nov 2017 06:15:51
Hearing from a usually reliable source of mine that's dad is friendly with ex director john gilligan, that the names that our DOF, mark allen has shortlisted and given to our directors are as follows, derek mcinnes,
alex neil, frank de boer, mikel arteta and patrick vieira! Only passing on some info fellow bears! Gio was originally on the list but was then taken off for whatever reason! Graeme murty is also under consideration! The new manager should be in place for our game against hamilton, at ibrox, saturday week!

14 Jan 2018 07:51:59
Would just like to heap massive praise to our manager graeme murty! He without question has brought back a tremendous team spirit which you can see clearly! The players all seem to know the system and what they are doing! Also impressed with the transfer targets and the signings he's already made! He thinks about the game thoroughly and has tactical nous! Delighted he's our manager and a big well done to him!


1.) 14 Jan 2018 08:11:34
Well said Supercoops. I am night and day more positive than coming out of the summer window under Pedro. We need to get behind the guys to the end of the season. We may still lose some games but from what I've seen from GM performances, it won't be through lack of effort and commitment. If you can guarantee these things you have a chance. Give the guy the tools (ie the playets) and he'll do the best job he can. And as somebody else posted - this was achieved without a number of top players (Alves, Dorrans, Jack, Miller, McCrorie)

2.) 14 Jan 2018 09:29:43
Isn’t mRk Allen doing the transfers? Think Murty will have some say though with mark rubber stamping them. Great team spirit now il agree

3.) 14 Jan 2018 09:54:03
I really do like the way things went in florida including the team bonding which was probably as important if not more, to see windass do snapchat videos with all the players and murty getting a dunking with a bucket, shows we might just be coming together as a team, murphys interview was bang on about getting to know each other although hallidays was funnier think he went to ann summers for his bottom layer, everybody is smiling when was the last time we could see that, as above if we carry on with determination and team work we won't be far off, we will have some sh1t results but it definatley looks night and day compared to the last few seasons

4.) 14 Jan 2018 09:55:12
I think we need to see how things progress once the winter break is over before anyone starts heaping praise on Murty or the squad. Have a tough run of fixtures coming up so let’s see how we perform

5.) 14 Jan 2018 11:51:50
ok naisy was a cracking player, but that was many years and a couple of injuries ago

he is probably still better than some of our current squad, but I agree we should be going for a younger prospect with more to offer and a possible sell on value ie cummings docherty



12 Jan 2018 20:36:36
Just like i posted on here nearly 2 weeks ago now, rangers make their move to try and sign hamilton accies midfielder, greg docherty! It was a motherwell youth coach i know who told me this, around a fortnight ago! Its being reported on various media outlets tonight that rangers are now in talks with hamilton, with a transfer fee of around 600k being touted! Greg docherty is a tremendous box to box midfielder and would be a very good signing for us! So far i've been impressed with graeme murty's transfer signings and targets!


1.) 12 Jan 2018 22:13:38
Docherty would be great signing. Really hope we go all out to get the boy it's a no brainer.

2.) 12 Jan 2018 23:07:51
Would be a good signing coop👍

3.) 12 Jan 2018 23:09:49
who has murty signed?

Murphy on loan and a QPR reject?

4.) 13 Jan 2018 00:53:27
Not seen much of the lad Docherty tbh. It does sound like a good piece of business, but after bringing in Goss when Jack and Dorrans return Barjonas will surely struggle to get games. Might be worth sending Barjo out on loan if we get Docherty?

5.) 13 Jan 2018 16:57:35
Docherty is the exact sort of player we should be targeting👍



29 Dec 2017 23:42:56
Ed, i've posted the josh windass voting options! Would be much obliged if you can now run the poll! Cheers ed!


{Ed033's Note -

josh windass poll



29 Dec 2017 19:29:49
Ed if you don't mind mate could you run a josh windass poll, to gauge what our supporters on here genuinely think he's worth? What about a poll asking our supporters what's the least amount of transfer fee, rangers should accept from any club, wanting to buy josh windass? Cheers ED, would be much obliged!


{Ed033's Note - What are the possible voting options?

1.) 29 Dec 2017 20:18:27
1 tin off fosters

2.) 29 Dec 2017 21:10:48
Ed the voting options that what supporters think josh windass is worth as a possible transfer fee are
2million-2.5million,2.5million-3 million,3million-3.5million or over 3.5million! Cheers ED!

3.) 29 Dec 2017 21:17:30
Rangers want close to 1M. 800k offer and I believe he’s away

4.) 29 Dec 2017 21:52:32
If we sell anything less than 2 mill then i would rather keep him who u going to replace him with we need decent money to replace him

5.) 29 Dec 2017 22:14:31
When hearts and Motherwell were demanding £1M for their prized assets last summer with one year left then I think Windass is worth more to us especially seeing the dearth of attacking options at present, he has a contract and his stock is rising, it’s £2M minimum for me and any team that we want to purchase a replacement from will only up the price if we have sold Windass already so the replacement should be bought first.

6.) 29 Dec 2017 23:23:17
Would you swap Windass for Walker and some cash for another. I think the board and Murty would say Yes. I honestly believe 800k inc a sell on clause and he’s gone

7.) 29 Dec 2017 23:43:21
If we get £2m for Windass then Dembele really is worth £30m. Based upon what he has achieved and his form over the last 2 years we will do well to get £800k for him just like Celtic will do really well to get £20m for Dembele

8.) 29 Dec 2017 23:46:06
Sell for his release clause of £3-£3.5m
Or sell for minimum £1-£1.5m up front with add ons and sell on fee clauses. We can't lose out on any profit to be made on him because he has and still is improving at us.

Personally I'd keep him. If he is a first eleven player under Murty we shouldn't sell. Same for any starting player, unless it's an inflated offer. That will only make us weaker.

We then buy only players to improve our first eleven. We don't need any more squad players just those who improve the first eleven.

9.) 30 Dec 2017 00:25:23
Scotty how do you know this is this your opinion or what.

10.) 30 Dec 2017 00:41:24
I have a mate whose part of youth setup, however, this is 100% just my opinion on what offers will be initially and what the board see as being fit to trade with. I think Windass and Fod will be sold in Jan to reinvest in squad. Can also see us only bring in loans if we don’t sell.

11.) 30 Dec 2017 10:33:43
I would keep windass rather than accept the 800k if we are lucky to get that for him, I believe with a good coach and confidence he will turn into a solid player in our league. Just look across the road forrest and McGregor have come along way under rodgers



28 Dec 2017 08:41:12
Before i make my point here, i would firstly like to say, that i didn't want warburton to resign danny wilson for rangers, almost 3 years ago now! Not because i didn't rate wilson as a centre half, especially when he was starting out as a young 17 year old for us, but because when he went to liverpool and then back to hearts, i actually thought wilson was going back the way! Even in his 2nd spell for us i didn't think he was improving any, up until lately! I think since he came back in the rangers starting 11,from injury, a few months ago now, i see a big improvement in wilson and shades of how good we probably all thought he would be, are coming to the fore again imo! At the moment danny wilson is playing superbly well for rangers and he's without doubt, one of the first names down on the team sheet, at the moment! I think he's arguably, along with ryan jack, probably the next glasgow rangers captain! He's out of contract in the summer but i now really do think, we should be offering wilson a new 3 year contract, before some other club comes in to sign him, on pre-contract, in january! He represents terrific value as he's still only 26 years old! Keep the good performances up, danny wilson! What do my fellow bears think regarding this?


1.) 28 Dec 2017 09:10:13
Agree Super. He splits opinion. The guy in front of me only sees when he makes mistakes, which he does at times but he is easily one of our best players and he has one us a few points now.

2.) 28 Dec 2017 09:31:44
Wilson is far too slow and is often found out against Celtic. Let’s see how he does Saturday before you heap praise on him. Remember supercooper your the man who thought Warburton was building something special at the club and have also heaped praise on Holt a player clearly not good enough for Rangers

3.) 28 Dec 2017 10:16:09
Mind you Brian, if the club had given Warburton 10 million in sure we would have a better team and we would be a lot further forward as a club than we are now.

4.) 28 Dec 2017 10:46:26
Brian, so your saying if Wilson doesn’t play well on Saturday nobody can heap praise on him for his form of late? I agree with Super, I think he’s been very good since he’s came back into the squad and hopefully that continues.

5.) 28 Dec 2017 10:49:40
Like the Tav posts, he's no way the worst and plays well with Bruno.

We'll see on Saturday if improvement made.

eh wilson was at fault for the goals against Killie Dembele will have a field day with him to slow if they plat griffs

7.) 28 Dec 2017 11:35:02
Wilson's always been a good player. Times where fitness or carrying an injury hampered him but fact is that a centre back makes a mistake and this page is over him like a rash with criticism. The same type of mistake further up the pitch from the likes of Miller never mentioned.

Brian read Dunbar blue and Lee mcf's posts mate! I agree wholeheartedly with both of these guys and yes i did back warburton like i back every glasgow rangers manager! Results and not me backing them or not determines how any rangers manager does! Try and bear that in mind brian!

9.) 28 Dec 2017 13:09:38
Wilson has played well recently and looks to have responded positively to opportunity created by departure of Pedro. Good leader and technically good footballer although not the fastest. Certainly worth another contract.

10.) 28 Dec 2017 14:05:45
Our best centre half pairing by far just now, is bruno alves and danny wilson! For the future going forward our potentially great centre half pairing should be, ross mccrorie and danny wilson! Of course that's when big bruno calls it a day!

Think you went a bit more than just back the woeful Warburton and I recall you handing out quite a lot of abuse to others who could see how poor he was. Also seem to remember a quote from you about putting up a statue for Frank McPahrland😭😭

12.) 28 Dec 2017 18:04:56
Danny Wilson isn’t the answer he is very slow and loses his man too easily. You only have to look at the Kilmarnock shambles on Saturday to see this. Also it was his mistake in the first minute last night that nearly cost us a goal. Motherwell created very few opportunities and it’s much easier to play against a Motherwell side without Moult and Cadden

13.) 28 Dec 2017 18:21:22
with some of your posts brian g, there's no chance of a statue of you going up any time soon! that's for sure my friend!

14.) 28 Dec 2017 18:45:53
I see Brian that your one of those fans who only see the bad in a player. Danny Wilson was easily MOTM last night yet you pick up on one mistake in the first minute.!? You also say the Kilmarnock shambles, correct me if I’m wrong but I’m pretty sure he wasn’t playing at the back by himself!? I bet you weren’t saying nothing when we beat Aberdeen home and away, a game where Wilson scored a great header, though you probably picked up on the fact it took him too long to tie his boot laces or something.! yes I agree he’s has flaws but name one player who doesn’t!?

15.) 28 Dec 2017 20:50:53

About the same chance as a statue of you going up

16.) 28 Dec 2017 20:56:57

No I just see him for the average player he is and don’t get carried away because he played against a poor Motherwell side without their 2 best players one of which tore us to ribbons in the semi final. The trouble with people on here is that they are that desperate for some sort of success they try to make heroes out of average players. Wilson is slow and isn’t the sort of player needed if we are ever going to try and challenge Celtic. However if your happy to be miles behind them fighting for 2nd place with Aberdeen and Hibs then maybe Wilson is your man. Some of us want better

17.) 28 Dec 2017 21:45:32
Brian. I’m not disagreeing with you, Wilson is an average player but you can’t say that he’s not playing well just now. You can only p**s with the c**k you’ve got and right now he’s our best CB along with Alves. Nobody is making Wilson a hero, but cut the guy some slack for some decent form. We won’t be challenging Celtic with half the squad we’ve got or current manager, but that’s for another day/ post.!

18.) 28 Dec 2017 22:06:19

Looks like the club aren’t convinced about him either as why hasn’t been offered a new contract with only 6 months of his current contract remaining

19.) 28 Dec 2017 22:11:22
Now now, don't be petty brian g!

20.) 28 Dec 2017 23:51:16
Wilson is to inconsistent for me, for every 2 good games he has 2 bad games. i agree that him and Alves are the best pairing but let's be honest that's nothing to shout about with this side

21.) 29 Dec 2017 04:05:40
I partly agree with this. He is a first eleven player, so is clearly rated by our current manager.
For that reason I'd extend his contract by only twelve months. Evaluate his performances this time next year and consider another contract, maybe even a longer contract if his performances are still good and a first eleven player.

We have given out too many long contacts to players over recent years and we need to be more prudent with this. Players like Halliday were given three year contacts, when we should be looking at giving long contracts to players with potential who may seek a move away. The only players I would want on contacts of three years or longer are Morelos, Tav and maybe Fod. Players like Jack and McRorie may also be worth long contacts but I can't see anyone coming in for them where they'd rather be playing football, at the moment. We have to watch McRorie closely to see how he develops then he might even be worth a five year contract if he becomes EPL quality.

22.) 29 Dec 2017 04:57:55
We should stop giving out such long contracts to every squad member.
Declan John should have been two and a half years, at most.

I agree Wilson should probably be signed up on a new contract. But I'd give him a one year extension. We then revisit it this time next year and see if we extend another year; don't offer an extension; or extend it for 2 or 3 years if he consistently proves to be a starter every game.

We have too easily given out long contracts to those who shouldn't have got them, i. e. Halliday being given three years. Then we are left with squad members not wanted, and thus restricting our funds for recruitment.

Only players I'd consider for contracts of three or more years are Morelos, Tav, and maybe Fod. These players would probably consider leaving if there was interest down south (championship) .
I'd also consider for Jack and McRorie, but I can't see them wanting to leave us for potential suitors. The McRorie situation mead change if he continues to improve and reaches potential EPL standard. If that happens even consider five and six year contacts. I'd do the same with any player who reaches EPL standard, i. e. potentially Morelos.

Basically, if:
-EPL standard contract length of 5+ years, and bit to let run down to below 2 years.
-Eng Championship (top half of table) standard 2-3 years (less for those who have an affinity with us as they are less likely to leave), and not to run down below 1 year
-Everyone else maximum 2 years and prove your worth for a renewal.

As far as i'm concerned its a no brainer to offer danny wilson a new contract! He's now coming into the form of his life and is a future captain of glasgow rangers! We must tie him down as soon as!

Spot on stewie25!Let stevie naismith go sign for hearts! I don't want him near glasgow rangers! He betrayed the club he professed to love, in its hour of need! Rangers stuck by him through not 1 but 2 serious cruciate ligament injuries! Some have short memories just like naisy!

East Belfast, greg docherty IS a rangers fan mate, i can assure you! He's friendly with one of the motherwell youth coaches i know! In saying that big blue bear is correct! It doesn't matter who any player we are wanting to sign, supports! As long as he can play!

I welcome all the coaching appointments to our youth academy! Very positive that kevin thomson, gregory vignal and stuart taylor will all be very good appointments! Above all else, just like BigMarv05 says, especially KT will be an excellent appointment and very deserving! This guy is an absolute gem and his commitment to coaching young players is there for all to see as he has his own academy through in edinburgh, ie. "THE KEVIN THOMSON ACADEMY"! He wants to give kids the chance that he had as a young kid, coming through the ranks at hutchison vale and hibs! KT is already a highly regarded young coach and i'll say here and now, that he has a very realistic chance, of becoming the glasgow rangers manager one day! Nobody has a bad word to say about KT! He's an absolute gentleman into the bargain! Best wishes to all 3!

Dunbar Blue, its quite simple mate, why we didn't move for jamie walker and lewis morgan, this january transfer window! We've moved on to other targets that graeme murty and our DOF, prefer instead of them! To start with jamie murphy is streets ahead of both jamie walker and lewis morgan IMO! I never really wanted us to sign jamie walker anyway! I was NEVER totally convinced with signing him and wasn't impressed anytime i watched him playing! With murphy now signed on loan along with young sean goss, i think our next transfer targets will be greg docherty and jordan jones! I like both these players and think they're much better than jamie walker and lewis morgan! I also do hope we purchase another striker! Thoughts guys?

Spot on eezyeez, jason cummings was a boyhood hearts fan! His dad was the rangers fan but jason will become a rangers fan now, just like our legendary players from the past, who were boyhood jambos like, john greig,
sandy jardine, alan mclaren etc! Jason cummings has the potential and ability to become a great glasgow rangers striker, for many years to come! He has swagger, character, superb left foot finisher, ability to know where to be at the right time! He'll score a lot of goals for us, i feel, over many years! Go on jason my son, you're a teddy bear now and our fans love a great goalscorer and will take him into their hearts!

Totally Goph1872!Said many times on here that derek mcinnes was NOT the correct manager, for the rangers manager's job! The guy bottled it, to stay in his cushy wee number at the sheep! He's an absolute choker in big games, which is fact! Hope he enjoys the rest of his career at a small middle of the road football club! Big mistake delboy and you'll never get that opportunity again! That will eventually eat away at him!
