Bruno alves been offered to galatasaray 😒 hope we don't miss out on him also.

Agree12 Disagree1

We won't miss out on him. It's probs his last big contract and he was never coming here to build up his pension.
& there lies the problem, we are so far behind in salary (never mind the state of Scottish football ) that it will be freebies and end of career pension seekers with no sell on value

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!

24 May 2017 14:51:37
TOMUSA no offence here mate, but what do you mean 'conned yet again'?

Do you not remember what our club has been through the past 5 years? King is running the club within it's means and he is the only chairman to have done so since David Murray and has stabilised the clubs finances. And let's not forget the small matter of Mike Ashley which prevents us from making any money from merchandise.

If it was not for King and Co it would have been game over for Rangers Football Club. If it was up to some of our supporters the club would have been in administration again long before now.

Sound like they are trying to bump up the transfer fee by creating a bidding war!

Bearmode91, King has from day one, talked about how he would invest his children's inheritance acquiring players for the Club and how he would see us returned to where we belong. Rule Number one for me, if you don't plan to do it or financially can't do it then don't promise it!

For me, having looked at the monies that other have put into the club, (not the purchase of stock, at a knocked own price to gain control), then, in comparison to others he is a minor investor.

I see nothing that he is doing other than with his mouth to take the club forward, and unlike Lawrence Marlborough all those years ago, I don't see the guy that he has put in to run the club on a day to day basis being all that dynamic.

Rangers, like their counterparts at the other end of the City is a Club with massive potential, especially given the potential for the right Investor to redevelop the surrounding areas to both generate jobs and generate significant income.

King is not the man to take us forward!

In the short term we will see whether the season ticket money + income on the sale of players goes to Pedro to enhance the playing staff or whether this was just more bullsh1t

Well said bearmode👍

Spot on Bear.

TOMUSA has an agenda against King.

He manages to have a go at King in virtually every post and cannot quite bring himself to acknowledging the fact that King and only King put his money in to buy a controlling stake (along with the other current supporting shareholders)

I have asked TOMUSA and other similar detractors on many occasions who or what is the alternative (based on at least a smidgeon of reality) but oddly science is always the loud reply.

24 May 2017 18:18:32
BR65, Until he puts his money where his mouth is I will continue to question him. In simple terms, unless he was genuinely going to invest the funds in the team then he should have kept quiet.

Now, he has come out and stated that all season ticket money, and that should be circa £13.5m will be invested in the team, and I don't believe that it is a simple coincidence that it has been season ticket renewal time.

Let's just wait and see, the quality of players at the Club has been pretty awful of late and big changes are needed, changes that will only be of the appropriate quality if Pedro has serious money to spend. If he gets the players of the right quality then hopefully he will succeed, if he does not get the financial backing then we cannot blame the manager.

In terms of replacing King, that is a good question, he is only a minority shareholder so would he sell his shares and if so for how much, and if so could a new investor take the club forward. and would that Investor be acceptable to the majority of the Rangers support?

24 May 2017 18:49:33
Tomusa you are correct that King is a minority shareholder. What I do not understand is why you expect him to pump millions of pounds of his own money into Rangers when he is only a minority shareholder. Why are you not moaning about the other shareholders who do not want to invest their money. The money would not benefit him, it would benefit others that are only here to make money. I do not hear McCoist offering to put money into the club and he is a shareholder who did not back King at the last AGM. I believe King is willing to invest given the right circumstances but did not get the support he required at the last AGM.

I think people should lay of DK he has put money in now and before when Murray was in charge. But let's be realistic he ain't going to pump £20m in every season we already know how that ends he's stabilising at the moment and once we we're making money as a club again then we can start spending again this is the only way forward. Dave King will be to rangers what fergus maccan was to ceptic

25 May 2017 08:40:53
Hi, I read with interest how your fans are divided on the D King issue and from the outside I think that you are both correct but also both wrong!
Yes, DK stepped forward and bought shares to get control of the club but the backing he received from you (the ordinary fan) was based on promises of OVER investing in the first few years in the playing squad and a suggestion that hew would happily spend his family's inheritance however to date all of the money that he HAS put into the club is in the form of a LOAN. someone above stated that his has the club living within its means. how can this be when the club is due anything from 7-13M (various figures being banded about) is loans just to get to the end of this season?
I really hope that this mess can be sorted and that you, the fans, get clarity of what is happening at the club because at the end of the day YOUR club means as much to you as MY club does to me and I really do feel for the ordinary fan.

JHW, have you not been listening?

"What I (JHW) do not understand is why you (TOMUSA) expect him (Dave King) to pump millions of pounds of his own money into Rangers when he is only a minority shareholder. "

Ehhh, because he said he would. Is that not a good enough reason to expect it?

25 May 2017 14:45:43
to me so far king has tried his best to live up to what he said he said we will be in the top devision this season we are

25 May 2017 16:40:10
some people like tomusa are wanting a sugar daddy to fix things but they won't get it.
king is doing everything he can to get us back to where we belong

25 May 2017 19:53:50
James, I don't necessarily want a wealthy investor to hand over funds to Rangers, because investing in Scottish Football will never bring financial reward however what I do want is honesty and a strategy to take us forward.

Lawrence Marlborough did not have £billions but he did have a vision for the future and in David Holmes he had a capable CEO to implement his strategy. When Souness was brought in it met with some questions but Souness and Smith delivered and when Lawrence Marlborough no longer had the financial capability to take the club forward as he passed the Club over to someone that was committed to continue his strategy.

Right now all I have seen is empty promises, if you cannot or will not keep the promises made then as Chairman you should not make those promises in the first place. I do not see a strategy for the future and I do not see a CEO with the Acumen of David Holmes.

As for Pedro, I will give him the opportunity to emulate Souness and Smith, right now he is a breath of fresh air. He is giving the young lads a chance, he has quickly identified that most of our current squad are not fit for purpose and he has by all accounts identified players that he believes can take this club forward and challenge our enemies in the East End of Glasgow.

Only time will tell but given the financial resources to secure the players he wants I have a significant degree of confidence that we will have a team that will play for the jersey and give that lot across the City a run for their money.

its quite clear to see david king is not going invest signifiant funds so really he should keep quite and stop promising the fans things then not delivering on the promises it is that simple actions speak louder than words then he wouldn't get sluaghterd on hear for it

25 May 2017 22:55:47
Tbf lads he shouldn't have made stupid promises about investing his kids inheritances etc. Yes he's stabilised our finances but he's also been far from honest with us from day one regarding the finances, you might not like it but it's the only truth of the matter, he hasn't invested like he said he would

26 May 2017 10:19:49
tomusa things don't happen overnight mater and king will get us there maybe not as quick as you would like but who cares what u and all the other pesimists like.

anyone with two eyes can see he is trying his best to get us back into a strong position but because it hasn't happened yet you doubt that's what he wants.

maybe u just want a sugardaddy
