Just think if mcinness had taken job do you think the signings playing last night would have been the same. I keep hearing mark Allan makes the signings but surely manager has some say.

Mark Allan doesn't make the signings mate whoever told u that doesn't understand his position

25 Jan 2018 18:20:44
As stated before Windass 20 minute player, Docherty will fill that position .
We broke last night Windass had Murphy one wing Candeias the other wing with the Aberdeen defence back tracking, what does he do, stops the ball slows down play and nothing comes of it .
There is a player in him but can't afford passengers, even the one he hit the post with should have been buried from ten yards .

25 Jan 2018 18:41:28
Maybe just me but I thought windass had a great game. Some of the game he was unplayable

25 Jan 2018 18:49:35
Yes CFBEAR I do think it would have been the same players or near enough but Maybe bought and not on loans cause we would of had a manager full time and past just the end of the season, I personally think DOF has a lot to do with which players are coming in and going and I also think that was 1 just 1 off the reasons DM didn't take the job, he wanted to be his own man and not be under a DOF.

Windass played well last night. To focus on a single mistake / error seems a bit harsh. I like the boy Docherty but he'll make mistakes too.

25 Jan 2018 18:59:09
It’s just you Camoo

25 Jan 2018 18:59:47
For 20mins in total he had a great game. The other 70 he went missing or is gash. It's the same very week. We need him being good for at least the 70 or more. Hence the reason we won't miss him unless he ups his 20min spell x 4.

25 Jan 2018 19:00:40
Docherty won't get a start. we are playn well with the starting 11 the now.

25 Jan 2018 19:07:34
The reason i'm asking is if mcinness did know who we were going after and now have actually signed he must have been standing there last night thinking well I got that decision wrong. I'm glad murtys is in there after some initial reservations . Whoever choose the players well done as heading in the right direction at last.

Is wilson away then one min he's captain then as soon as news comes out about american interest he's dropped?

My take on who's making the signings is that it isn't as simple as saying it's my or GM or even Walter alone. But a mixture and collectively with the board. In the summer for example it was surely Dozza's representatives who got in touch with Rangers, and I believe Murphy would be a similar situation. John is bound to be on MA's recommendation and I reckon Goss might be also.

Murty worked as a coach at Norwich before coming to us so would know Martin on a personal level, so to me looks like one of his own. Obviously Walter has had some influence on Murty's thinking as he alluded to himself. Personally I think the setup with Murty and Allen working in tandem and Walter's wisdom in the background means that we're less likely to make errors in the market. I also think Warbs did us a favour with Cummings (perhaps not intentionally) as Hivs would never have dealt with us directly.

Disagree all ye want but a guarantee ye Docherty doesn't start Sunday.

26 Jan 2018 07:57:28
Why would Walter Smith have any say in signings we make? Surely if that is the case then that undermines Murty as a manager and his judgement!

26 Jan 2018 08:14:11
Pretty sure dof has a big say in how we sign.

26 Jan 2018 08:19:45
Calvin55 I don't think anyone is saying Smith is actually making the signings. At least that wasn't what I was getting at, just that he's advising on the type of signings. Murty has publicly said that Smith has been giving him advice so that's hardly undermining him. Also people have witnessed Walter showing one or two of the new signings round Ibrox. McCulloch said after the first couple of loans that it bears the hallmarks of Walter and he's not wrong.

26 Jan 2018 08:33:12
Yes blueberry, in my initial post there my was meant to be my or Mark Allen, and of course he has a big say I'm just pointing out that it's likely not his sole decision and that it's a combination of him and Murty plus players that have been put to the board via agents with them all agreeing collectively. Not just one persons decision that's all I was saying.

26 Jan 2018 08:49:28
MA not my

26 Jan 2018 11:10:50
Would rather see Murty stand or fall on his own two feet. Can't understand why Murty would ask someone who he should sign e. g if he had a player in mind and Walter told him not to sign said player would Murty trust Walter's judgement over his own? A managers lives or dies by his own decisions. Surely we can't have a Rangers manager who needs "advising" as to the type of player he should sign!

26 Jan 2018 14:59:07
I see what your getting at but like I say two or three heads might be better than one here. Walter has been round the block a few times and Murty is completely new to this level of decision making. Ultimately I think Murty will carry the can, but it certainly doesn't hurt having Allen's knowledge of English youth players and Walters knowledge of Scottish football and the Old firm on tap.
