Warburton supposedly told board he wants 3 new players but expects only to be able to afford one and wants that to be toral. He better be some player then that can defend score goals and create goal because we seriously need it
06 Jan 2017 13:15:54
Think he'll get another.
06 Jan 2017 13:21:53
That's poss mate but I think we will sign 3 players, but I doubt we will buy them, it will be loans till the end of the season imo
06 Jan 2017 14:50:24
He'll get at least one more after Toral, that's a guarantee.
He wants at least two, he'll get at least two. Barton wages for one thing and even had Barton worked out and stayed, odds would've been strong we'd still have money to bring in a coupe of loan players and/ or pre contracts.
These type of stories pop up every window in regards to the club's finances. Like everything else, it's pointless paper talk, it's discussed for a while by the fans and then forgotten come the end of the window, when we'll likely have about three new signings through the door.

He won't get the quality he needs and that will continue while King is the major shareholder. We currently need a minimum of three players and that is provided we retain both Crooks and MOH.
Players like Halliday are just not good enough for this league but are clearly favourites of Warburton. They will take us no where!

I agree with the bottom part of your post tom, but it's not Dave king that's holding rangers back, it's bloody Ashley, I'm surprised people can't see this

We had the same discussions in the summer window, the January window before that and it'll be the same come the summer.
Where's the money, we haven't got the money, then days later we spend 1.8 million on a centre forward when most thought, had Waghorn not been injured in the first game we didn't even need any more strikers.
The players that are considered favourites by the manager, will up their game when the club gets in a couple of decent quality players on loan, (with a view to permanent deals) .

Tom I'm beginning to think you don't rate Haliday!
06 Jan 2017 20:56:54
Fraser aird was and is total dog rubbish terrible player why on earth would we want him back!
06 Jan 2017 21:54:14
GMW, the guy is not and never will be a holding midfield player. I had high hopes when we signed him that he would be a decent player for us, playing in his own position but low and behold we fail miserably to get a holding midfield player and we try to make Halliday into one and destroy him and at the same time weaken our defence since he gives them no cover. He has gone backwards at a great rate of knots. He lacks guile, his tackling is 'wishy washy', he plays far too many sideways passes and back passes and they tend to be on the short side.
In the position he is playing you are correct, I really don't rate him! He is not alone in that respect. I don't believe that Holt is good enough for this league but at least he has time on his side to develop and I struggle with Waghorn and Tavernier, the latter of whom I really thought would have grown into a Premier League player. Unfortunately he is going backwards as well!

You can't say these players aren't premier league players when we are still sitting second in the league and its past the halfway stage. Not good enough to compete with Celtic at the moment is where we're at but to say the players we have aren't premier league players is absolute nonsense.
07 Jan 2017 09:38:28
Rick, I guess you are correct given the pathetic standard of the SPL outwit Celtic. Indeed you would be hard pushed to find a sixteen man squad from all the other clubs together that could challenge them right now. What is more, there wouldn't be many Rangers players in that squad!
We are second by default because the other teams are more rubbish than we are but we might be sitting third if Aberdeen win their game in hand! What is more we might start to slide down the league if we don't make any acquisitions and Clubs like Hearts and even St Johnstone, strengthen.
Outside the MCCoist / McDowall Era, where we were a joke!, we have the poorest assortment of so called football players that I can remember. There are perhaps two or three of our players that are not currently injured or over 30 that are even worth considering for a Rangers jersey, the rest are not worthy to call themselves Rangers players.
