Again i'm only passing on info to share with all on here. there's a lot of stories doing the rounds in the last hour or so that lawrence shankland is about to become a rangers player 🤔One guy who says he got it from alex rae said the lawrence shankland to rangers deal is done and dusted and its for an undisclosed fee he said 🤔He added that jamie barjonas may be going to scumdee utd as a sweetner for the deal, on a season long loan deal 🤔Time will tell bears.

Hopefully we can get clarity soon SGL, I would like him as an alternative for the smaller teams in the league but we need to find a gem as first choice.

Ach well if you r right SGL seems we are going to accept second best again.

Honestly I don’t think Shankland is the answer HOWEVER I don’t doubt he would bag us a few goals. Would I take him as the only sticker signing, no. would i take him as another option 3rd choice, probably.

John if he's to come in then would be as squad player. Would also like u to sign a big powerful striker to allow us to play 2 up top ( we can only dream)

I just can’t see how a player like Shankland will work in our system. I’m not saying he’s a bad player. I really don’t know how good he’ll be at this level as he’s pretty much untested, and he does appear to be a good finisher. However as we saw from yesterday and the preseason games are main central striker (ie Morelos at this point) seems to be getting asked to play deeper at times than last year, as a linking player, pulling the centre backs out of position and creating space for the likes of Kent Hagi and others to move into the space. Again this is very much the way Liverpool play. Firminio plays in the middle but ends up creating much more than he scores by dropping a bit deeper. I can’t see Shankland Being able to play that role as his link up play isn’t strong.

More chance of Shankland coming in and hitting the ground running than some "superstar" who will take half a season to adapt to the scottish league. Dick Advocaat went out and bought Billy Dodds for that reason.

Shankland has never scored in the top league. I’m actually gutted this may happen.

Good post gers 1978. Gerrard wants us to play the Liverpool way, that may just help us get Brewster on loan.

Wot playing system is it that let's morelos go back to halfway line looking for the ball as he did against aberdeen more often than not loosing posession.

Mcv Dodds has proved himself in the top league billy Dodds.

Mcv he had scored 100 goals in top league before we signed him.

SGL still waiting on Dykes signing Fae last week.

The system that I just described 6counties, after all it was what got us the winning goal, just saying.

Correct John shankland is not the answer and will not win us the league.

He's no coming KJA9.

If the Shankland deal was done and dusted and just waiting on being announced, there is no way Dundee Utd would have played him yesterday. He may well sign yet, but doubt it’s been done.

JS I hope U r right.
Some says play him against the smaller teams, why not the so called big teams, is he not good enough.
So why waste million plus to sign him.

02 Aug 2020 15:50:09
I agree with you John25

Don’t think shankland is the answer
He’s not the player that will turn the tide for us unfortunately I don’t think anyway . 😳.

02 Aug 2020 16:17:19
Tje stig no1 sayin he wpuld he would be coming in as a squad player same as what dykes would. Who ever coming in is basically a 3rd choice.

Egg on face coming for many?

If SG decides to bring in Shankland it will be for a specific role and not to replace Alf as or go to striker.

Have no idea if there is any truth or just more BS but if he arrives he'll have my support.

Do I think he's good enough? Doesn't matter what I think - SG knows more than me.

21.) 02 Aug 2020
02 Aug 2020 16:55:48
Do if he comes in he will get my support. I just think we can get better.

22.) 02 Aug 2020
02 Aug 2020 17:28:32
same as me, don't think he is what we need but like every player they will always get my support.

23.) 02 Aug 2020

This year of all years we need a proven striker not someone who hasn’t been tested in the top league, if you look at the bench yesterday it was weak not one player that would change the game nothing to excite the fans we need more quality players in the door a right winger another striker and a midfielder it’s a long season as for Alphie never have I seen a Rangers player take so much rubbish yesterday was the first game of the season no player is st the top level of match fitness yet he still ran himself into the ground as he was told to do by SG he was playing deep then up top great ball for the goal and he had no service in front of goal we need to create more chances we had the same problem last year.

24.) 02 Aug 2020

Shankland would be a good signing. If morellos goes as is likely, we are going to need 2, maybe 3 strikers. I d be happy with shankland as one of those. With a bit more tested striker also coming in.

25.) 02 Aug 2020
02 Aug 2020 18:34:19
Still can’t believe they are rangers fans that can’t spell MORELOS correctly.

Shankland will get my support but he is not what we need.

SGL is this the same guy that told you Dykes was signing last week?

26.) 02 Aug 2020
02 Aug 2020 18:47:35
Has everyone forgot we have Greg Stewart? . I was a harsh critic of his and still am but he is not any worse than the dross were being linked with.

Another player Rangers have no interest in.

SGL hopefully Shankland partners up well with Cosgrove, Dykes, and the other 20 strikers you've mentioned in the last couple of months! on another note, are you one of these ones who back 20horses e/ w in the grand national and claim you picked a winner when one of them finishes 5th?

Out of all the names rumoured by posters on this site recently, for me the most likely to happen is Brewster because of the Liverpool connection.

Shankland would score goals in my opinion. No brainer for me.
