There were better players at Rangers back in the eighties than we have now. Guys like Redford were significantly better than guys like Halliday and Holt

If we lose out on Alves and don't sign someone of the same calibre then our defence will be a shambles next season again and Pedro will be the next sacrificial lamb.

Only time will tell whether there really is a serious transfer kitty for Pedro that would be £13m+ all the transfer fees received or whether the Rangers support is being conned yet again by King and his Bullsh1t!

We don't currently have a proper captain or our books. We are in a worse position than we were all those years ago when David Holmes and Lawrence Marlborough brought in Souness to start the revolution.

Back then, Marlborough had a vision and brought in David Holmes; you couldn't really say that about King and whoever is running the club on a day to day basis now.

We signed players like Butcher who was captain of England and followed that up with Gough and Amoruso, before our own Barrie Ferguson was ready for the job.

All of these guys were leaders. They played by example. Took one for the team. They could motivate the players around them to give that extra 10% or 20% when needed.

In years to come we will hopefully have a home grown player of Barrie Ferguson's stature, perhaps even, in due course, the young lad we captured from Liverpool could do the job as he has done for England's youth team but for now we need to hope that three or four of the players that Pedro is looking to sign has these qualities because Wallace definitely doesn't!

It will cost us a lot more than £500,000 to replace him unless we are planning to bring in a lesser player or Pedro has managed to do some magic and bring in a Portuguese, Mexican or Argentinian Internationalist using the old pals act.

Either that or King has conned the support yet again and we won't see any quality coming in through the front door and it will be another season of rubbish!

I find it very strange that Halliday is not on that list. He was one of the worst performers at the club; right down there with Kiernan. If Pedro is looking to bring in players and thinks Halliday is quality then I hate to think what we will end up with!

I also wonder whether King's comments are serious because with all those players on the list to be replaced we will need the £13m from season ticket sales + what we can secure from selling those players mentioned + more, just to replace them with slightly better quality.

Sorry but it all smells to me, like another con job!

While King is in charge I just don't see us signing any quality players unless Pedro himself can convince players to sign for us. Like him or hate him, Murray usually got his man, King comes over as being disinterested except for when its season ticket time!

This idea, (and wish from our enemies), that we will be back in administration, is borne out of fear since they have had an easy passage for the past five years. Although they might not be the most dynamic, the current Rangers Board will not let the club go down although what happens across the City in the future, no one knows!

While Jack looks exactly the type of player we should want in our ranks we need to be very careful not to assume that every player that looks the part in 'smaller' teams will be able to cope with the pressures of playing for Rangers in front of 50,000 every second week.

I believe that what we need is a mixture of the best young Scottish players supported by strong professional overseas players that have the CV's and the International experience as well as the hunger for success.

Players should only come to Rangers if they want to win trophies and are willing to do what is necessary to be successful.

He is rumoured to be interested in Kiernan. (I did check and it was not April 1st)!

I reckon that he is improving and will benefit from the new goalkeeper coach. He needs to command his penalty box and make every ball inside the six yard box his!
