As it's rumour season I'd thought I'd share what I've heard from a "Source" lol
Leeds will come in with a bid of around £1m in the next 24/ 48 hours for Windass.
I'd expect it to be kicked into touch with at least double and a decent sell on percentage required.
I'd rather we got Kranjcar off the wage bill and replaced him with Docherty and kept Windass.


1.) 18 Jan 2018 20:54:30
Be ready for a lot of unbelievables, as I got when I posted Leeds were after him. By the way I don't remember the last time I read a newspaper, cept the racing pages on a Saturday. On Windass I'd sell him for a decent offer 20 miniute player for me.

2.) 18 Jan 2018 21:06:08
Docherty all but done saying annoucement could be tomorrow just a couple of small things to tie up i'd imagine a medical is one

3.) 18 Jan 2018 22:08:02
Agree with bluepete, def 20 minute player for us and yet you know he has the ability, he frustrates me .
Let's hope the lad can improve on that .

4.) 19 Jan 2018 01:30:36
I would take the money Windass isn’t that good imo

5.) 19 Jan 2018 09:22:24
Bluepete, I reckon the unbelievables are most likely coming from the dark side as they don't have anything on their own site to talk about .
Do you think they are starting to get worried 😃

6.) 19 Jan 2018 09:34:03
windass has potenial and if he goes for 1 million pound our club will regreat it if the lad was to have a good second half to the season then you could easy make 3 times than on him in the summer

7.) 19 Jan 2018 10:30:57
Windows is good but I agree only in parts of a game he has ten Mins here and there

8.) 19 Jan 2018 13:40:13
Oh yes brian, they are starting to get worried (brilliant mate)



01 Jan 2018 11:31:04
It's reported Hearts are lining up swap deal with Wigan with Jamie Walker going there.
If we want him get him on PreContract same as McLean as both are good enough to get into our squad. I know some bears are not convinced about McLean but I'd rather McLean than Halliday. Ideal if we can get players who are 1st teamers but if someone is available who can improve your squad for no transfer fee it's got to be seriously considered.


1.) 01 Jan 2018 12:23:08
Have to be honest here, i've never been totally convinced, that we should sign hearts winger jamie walker! Jamie murphy is a much better player and he's the one winger i do hope we sign, forget walker imho! We've already got a good right winger in daniel candeias! His work rate is phenomenal!

2.) 01 Jan 2018 12:52:35
When Wallace is back will Declan john not be moved to left wing/ midfield? Still think Murphy would be a good signing though.



02 Nov 2017 08:41:14
My understanding is Murty will prepare and manage team for Saturday.
Aberdeen will be contacted early next week to ask permission to speak to McInnes and to try and negotiate a deal with him before compensation is agreed.
Board don't want to seem like they are rushing decision and they are giving DOF his place to see if he has any viable alternatives during this week.
McInnes is up in Glasgow area on Saturday to face Hamilton in possibly his last game as Sheep manager, there may be an informal meeting set up while he's here.
All things going to plan he will lead Rangers out ironically against Hamilton in his 1st game after getting 2 weeks with new squad.


1.) 02 Nov 2017 11:02:53
An 'unofficial meeting set' up won't happen! We have to approach the sheep first

2.) 02 Nov 2017 12:16:00
Obviously Murty will take the team on Saturday as we don't have a manager not really hard to fathom out

3.) 02 Nov 2017 22:04:39
I think he means we will get permission to see if we can agree terms with McInnes before agreeing a package for Aberdeen. Happens all the time with transfers. No point spending time agreeing a fee with a club for player or manager if that person doesn’t want to go or can’t get the money they want.



30 Aug 2017 08:04:07
Rangers will be making their final bid for Walker today of £700k if not accepted we will move onto other targets. We are hopeful it will go through now new manager is in place. Watch this space.


1.) 30 Aug 2017 10:21:09
craig won't sell him to us as half the fans already don't like him and he would be committing carreer suicide.
this means th deal won't happen.

i hope we can get a left winger in and a full back as we definitely need cover

2.) 30 Aug 2017 10:39:25
Peds my mate is a Jambo and walker was booed by a section of the crowd against Motherwell on Saturday and apparently has showed a really poor attitude since the rangers bid. Hopefully Levein will sell to get some cash to freshen his squad although I think he was behind the transfers when cathrow was there.

3.) 30 Aug 2017 12:00:28
If a Team came in for one if ours and he wanted to go whether he supported them or not I would want him to go. Surely most Hearts Fans will feel the same. They have decidede to hold out for as much as possible and fair enough but are taking a gamble one which if we could've brought a decent loan in early and was playing out his skin then I'm thinking we probably would've waited until jan etc poss Dalcio was earmarked but failed to produce

4.) 30 Aug 2017 12:23:37
i know a few hearts fans and they all said the same thing to me that they would rather have the player for another season than 1 million to waste on 2 average players



27 Aug 2017 21:02:43
Rangers to table FINAL £700k bid early this week for Jamie Walker.
Hearts were set to accept £650k bid 2 weeks ago before they sacked their manager. Fearing a backlash from the Hearts fans who own a substantial part of the club as part of the fans ownership scheme they put it on hold until a new manager is appointed.
That is expected to be concluded in next 1-2 days and with Walker telling the club he intends to see out his contract its unlikely the new manager will not sanction the move to enable him to free up some cash to buy his own players to shape the squad.
Rangers are hoping £700k will seal the deal.
I don't know Hearts board or Jamie Walkers agent if this doesn't happen before window closes shoot me down but the noises i'm hearing is they expect this to be over the line before window closes.


1.) 28 Aug 2017 08:23:42
In the modern game its very rare that a new manager comes into a club and makes decisions so quickly. They have a director of football.

2.) 28 Aug 2017 09:39:57
Not if the DOG and the new manager are one and the same

3.) 28 Aug 2017 12:17:18
Sorry guys, but from what I've seen of j walker, I can't say I'm jumping for joy at the thought of him signing for us. Hope I'm wrong

4.) 28 Aug 2017 12:26:03
I would imagine the board and DOF would have their opinion but buying and selling players would be Managers remit. After already sanctioning new transfers for Cathro like Berra and Lafferty who will be on decent wages.
I'm sure the transfer kitty will be in need of a top up if new manager is allowed to get his own men in over next few days. It makes sense for a Manager to want to generate a decent fee rather than have an unhappy player around the club who he will then lose for nothing and with the board already setting an asking price of £1m proves they are receptive to selling the player.

5.) 28 Aug 2017 16:54:55
Did anyone really expect walker to play well against us? He has made it clear he wants to play for us and will want to engineer a move. If he played well he would have given reason for hearts to demand more money when we clearly won't pay!

6.) 29 Aug 2017 00:56:12
Hearts need the money! New stand over budget and Foundation of Hearts membership falling monthly.

I'm hearing Morelos to leave is now looking more likely due to players head looking to have been turned by opportunity to earn anything from £27-60k per week depending on what article you read.
I have no qualms leaving to better yourself in La Liga or BPL but if reports are true and he's motivated by the cash I'd be a tad disappointed.
If we can secure player ready to go straight into team today the deal could be on with Rangers asking for £10m and the latest offer being £8m I'd imagine £9m could be eventual fee that's agreed.
I'm fully aware the Chinese window is open for another month but unless we get someone else in today the deal is less likely to be done.
(The £8m bid was also reported to have been cash up front no payment schedule)
We could make Murphy £1.2, Cummings £1m and Martin £1m deal permanent and get a Striker with £8m with money leftover will be interesting to see this develop.


1.) 31 Jan 2018 15:48:25
He can't go anywhere if Rangers don't agree to it. he's under contract!

2.) 31 Jan 2018 16:32:59
Remember 10% of the transfer fee goes back to Helsinki plus some other clauses probably first team appearances etc but we would still have a large sell here will he go haven’t heard anything as yet.



30 Jan 2018 21:36:01
West Brom have accepted a bid of £2.5m for Tyler Roberts from Leeds Utd. (£4m bid rejected recently) He's obviously made it clear he isn't going to sign new deal with the signing of Sturridge pushing him further down the pecking order at WBA.
Said to be on our Radar not sure if we offered him a pre contract or not but looks like he may be heading to Leeds now.


1.) 31 Jan 2018 06:31:21
Mibee we can't afford it. because we wanted jones and devante Cole but we haven't got them either.



23 Aug 2017 00:13:50
As far as I'm aware the loan signing winger Aaron Nemane plays on both Wings but predominantly in the Right. He is also out of contract at end of the season and has no appearances in the City 1st team.




23 Aug 2017 00:10:29
Rangers have signed winger Aaron Nemane from Man City on season long loan. 19 year old signed on loan under reccomendation of our new Director of Football who has spoken very highly of this boy. That may mean end to Jamie Walker deal until Bosman in January.




26 Jul 2017 21:13:10
Rangers beat Watford 2-1 in closed doors friendly. Candeias scored the opener and Waghorn the winner 2 minutes from time.
Caixinha played 4-4-2 again.
Small steps.


1.) 26 Jul 2017 22:10:56
Yes good result but performance and match fitness much more important than result. Just read Pedro's comments and think he is getting carried away a little bit with this and the Marseilles results in non competive matches. Competitive opener at Fir Park followed by 2 battles against Hearts and Hibs all need to be won Pedro.

Recall dropping 2 points against Hamilton in opener last season and we never recovered from it. Other than Dodoo inspired 3 nil victory at Pittodrie our performance in competitive matches had been extremely poor under the manager.

2.) 27 Jul 2017 00:02:46
From what I remember even the 3-0 against the sheep was only won due to them collapsing for 10 minutes

3.) 27 Jul 2017 06:51:12
Yep, 2 wins in friendlies (wins none the less) and Pedro is suddenly giving interviews again about the 'process'.
Wish him and the rest would just can it till we walk the walk!

4.) 27 Jul 2017 07:17:55
Just read Pedros interview he says 4-4-2 seems to be the formation the player are reacting best too and this is what everyone has been asking for.

That's him showing a willing too change his idea to suit the team more than could be said for mr bread before him.

Positive things going on hopefully this can unify the team.

I definitely wouldn't be getting carried away with a couple of semi decent results in friendlies.

For me the team should be


Tav Bruno cordoso Wallace

Candies (seems too be proving me wrong) jack Niko and dorrans

Herrera and miller

I don't think any the players being linked would make us much better maybe Naismith would maybe a replacement for miller for the next few years. I wouldn't burst the bank for walker one year on his contract definitely would pay a million for him 600k tops as again I don't think he's a must have.

5.) 27 Jul 2017 14:34:08
Fd what is it with you and dodoo. You say Pedro is getting carried away but you are getting carried away with a guy that has a terrible first touch and has done nothing. Are you his agent, his dad, his lover of just him because why else would someone back a donkey so much

6.) 28 Jul 2017 09:43:22
gary75, great post. We are all passionate supporters and entitled to the occasional outburst and contrary opinion, including Pedro. The boy Dodoo has massive potential and is a natural finisher. Think he played around 20 games last season most of which consisted of 20-30 minute appearances off the bench and scored 5 or 6 goals that gained valuable points. The quality of his strikes against Thistle and the sheep were top class and if Forrester had been less selfish and passed to Dodoo we would have at least drawn that game against Celtic. Fear he will be allowed to leave without being given the opportunity his talents deserve.

7.) 28 jul 2017 16:35:50
coz a guy wants to be positive and put positive thoughts into his players he is getting carried away

i will tell u lot one thing about our team its confidence is fragile as it was last year and i blame all the fans that gave them nothing but stick from day one.

our fans are up there with the most negative fans there is because of what we just went through for the past 6 years but its time to put that to bed, get on with things as they are and really get positive about our team as it looks a damm sight better than it has for the last 6 years

I’d like to see Bates and Alves as the 2CBs. Bates has constantly praised Bruno for the advice he has given him and what Bates lacks in decision or position wise he makes up for with his pace and determination to instantly rectify his mistakes when he gives ball away or gets caught wrong side.

Bruno is far smarter, better in the air and tidier with his long diagonals in particular but of course lacks pace. He attacks it and wins the headers and Bates can sit and cover, they can both play it out from the back much better than Cardoso or Martin.

£11m is too much to turn down. We need to win the Title as a matter of urgency and we have steadily closed the gap with our squad adding a few good players in each of the past couple of transfer windows.
If we were in Ceptics financial position I would tend to agree that potentially he could be worth more and would keep him and benefit with his goals until a point where a mammoth bid came in.
£11m would pay for Murphy, Cummings, Goss (if available) and Russel Martin and another striker.
Personally £6m would have been good but £11m we need to sell

He’s in a reported £7k per week from £1k he earned in Finland. I can see him signing an improved contract on £15k for additional year or 2 giving him a 3-4 year deal probably with certain release clauses that suits both parties in the region of £15m.
This is only an opinion though nothing more. I bumped into him and his dad today in Silverburn his English was far better than when I met him at Ibrox in September, he was really happy and replied with nae bother when we asked for a picture, Alfredo senior took it for us as well

He may have indifferent distribution but the passes he does pull off are usually pretty decent in final 3rd. He is quite quick and athletic if he gets beat he normally gets back goalside quickly and has above average strength play him alongside Bruno or Martin and he will continue to improve. Listen I used to think he was just another mediocre squad player at best but to be fair to him defensively he has rarely been found wanting or directly causing us a goal and he’s played Ceptic, the sheep and the other big games and never let us down

I hear Sunderland were sniffing about him in a potential loan deal till end of season when contract expires. Hope we get him his scoring record is phenomenal ⚽️🌟

1st 1 hit Bates on midrift, 2nd claim Bates is actually bringing his arms back in from unnatural position not a stone walker but I’d expect it to be given more often than not.
The award that was given was never a penalty due to the speed of the ball and the close proximity of our player to the ball, it’s just smashed off him.
In conclusion they should have been awarded 1 penalty and they were awarded 1 penalty but apparently we were lucky. If it was awarded at 1-0 and became 1-1 we could easily have gone on to win still.

The Compensation is for the remaining wages for the contract that they lose out on by not working.
As he took another role and after reportedly offering his resignation days earlier Warbs decided against trying to get compensation through the courts and the case was closed.

He's back up for Wallace at the moment who has the odd injury here and there throughout the season. Obviously if he does well in training or league cup/ bounce games he might start before Waldo in time .

Burts injured just now mate, maybe when fit he will go to another Scottish club or will benefit from playing Elite Youth Clubs, I have high hopes for him in particular he looks a class act in the Youth games Iv watched.

It looks more like training kit. We already announced we would be using last seasons home kit for 2017/ 18 which is registered with league and was with UEFA.
We announced an away and potentially 3rd kit would be available in 4-6 weeks (6-8 weeks ago)
The new Away top was worn V Ross County and will be available to buy in a few weeks.
I'm not convinced the new blue or white kits are real or going to be our 3rd or new home kits. I hope not aswell they both look like cheap crap
