Nothing compares to the excitement and paranoia of January transfer deadline day!




20 Jan 2020 12:34:16
Boyle or Kamberi of Hibs have been reviewed this window with Docherty and Murphy in part exchange.


1.) 20 Jan 2020 13:09:41
why would hibs give us 2 of there better players for 2 of our players that are always crocked?

2.) 20 Jan 2020 14:11:49
Bankie, got to say I quite like Kamberi, may be a useful squad player. He can look after himself and is not bullied.
Not sure what he would cost us.

3.) 20 Jan 2020 14:11:53
Docherty isn’t always crocked. He’s just not getting infront of our current midfield. He’s a player, just not quite good enough with the form of our mids.

Just about all teams in the SPFL would take Docherty in their team, likely wages make him too expensive to try to buy.

4.) 20 Jan 2020 14:20:09
Big blue bear. Docherty never crocked and Murphy has been fit since October.
Do agree though why would hibs move on Kamberi and Boyle.

5.) 20 Jan 2020 14:50:47
Especially martin boyle for me guys.
Everytime i've seen boyle i've been impressed with him. He's a flying machine, can beat his man with ease,
can pass to assist and can score goals. what's not to rate or like here?

6.) 20 Jan 2020 15:35:39
Just reading Kamberi has two million sell on clause, not worth thar.

7.) 20 Jan 2020 15:46:31
Would take Boyle in a minute if we can get him.
Fast and takes his chances.
Would be a major upgrade on Barker, Ojo and Jones.
From Aberdeen which would annoy the Sheep as well!

8.) 20 Jan 2020 15:55:51
Kamberi is nowhere near good enough. Scores about 5 a season.

9.) 20 Jan 2020 16:11:14
Would take Boyle in a heartbeat, depends how big his hatred of Rangers is though with him being an aberdeen fan. He may not be interested.

10.) 20 Jan 2020 16:58:40
Why oh why are we not going for Shankland.

11.) 20 Jan 2020 17:10:56
Murphy is already signed with burton and has trained there so he can hardly sign for hibs. Martin boyle never good enough, remember folk wanted Barker because he was fast and had a couple of good games. can't get a look in at us.

12.) 20 Jan 2020 17:52:15
The difference with boyle to barker mate is night and day. Boyle beats defenders, can deliver a final ball with his pinpoint passing and scores goals, i rest my case pal.

13.) 20 Jan 2020 18:23:00
Cannon, because we have far higher ambitions than a second tier player in one of the poorest leagues in Europe.

14.) 20 Jan 2020 19:04:36
Kamberi is a dud!

15.) 20 Jan 2020 19:16:24
Neither of these players are the required standard. Boyle is no different from Barker or Jones.

16.) 20 Jan 2020 19:32:55
Agreed SGL.

17.) 20 Jan 2020 19:34:07
Hes definitely better than barker . Think barkers level is tops championship scottland or bottom 6 prem team. Pretty poor.

18.) 20 Jan 2020 19:41:33
Coops, you said the same about barker last season mate and in summer. I rest my case 👍.

19.) 20 Jan 2020 19:56:09
Btw he's got 27 goals at hibs in 5 seasons. 5 or 6 goals a season for a winger yous claim to be some player is hardly a good return. Ojo has s seasons worth of Boyle's goals in 4 month n he can't get a game 🤷‍♂️.

20.) 20 Jan 2020 20:08:03
Here we go 55 on that account we shouldn't have signed ryan kent then. had shocking loans previous to rangers last season. Ond chipped in with 5 goals and as many assists last season.

21.) 20 Jan 2020 20:52:29
Cant believe you're putting kent and martin boyle in same sentence tbh 😂😂 we definitely need a right winger but if we csnt sign someone who improves the 11 we may as well wait till summer. Martin boyle would be a squad player at best, we would be as well bringing Hastie back as singing him.

22.) 20 Jan 2020 21:37:20
Am not saying boyles close but comparimg the goals and stats as u have to other players. Kent couldn't even get a game for bristol.

23.) 20 Jan 2020 22:25:01
Aye at 19 paul. Eith plenty of time yo improve, boyle is 27 👍.

24.) 20 Jan 2020 23:10:34
Stats in all truth mean little.

25.) 21 Jan 2020 07:27:52
Stats mean little? 🤔 Not sure about that. Have to say think we should be going for better calibre of player than Martin Boyle. Are the club/ SG even looking at him?

26.) 21 Jan 2020 07:38:17
So does anybody seriously think martin boyle should be the level of our ambitions? Or he would be any more than another squad player? Weve got a huge squad honestly think it should just be 1 or 2 real quality additions who enhance the first 11.

27.) 21 Jan 2020 10:49:19
Barker is 5 years younger than Boyle. He might not be a world beater but by 27 I would be surprised if he isn’t better than Boyle. Honestly, it’s like we’re still in League 2. If it was up to some of you we would have sold Morelos and Barasic for buttons and would be playing Louis Moulet and Lewis Stevenson in their place 😂.

28.) 21 Jan 2020 11:39:14
Swag 👍 should now only be signing players who enhance the first 11 . No point signing any more guys to sit on bench or in stsnds.

29.) 21 Jan 2020 16:50:22
Progress happens when you sign players who are better than you already have playing in the first team, then those who are currently playing in the first team become benched. I long for the day when half of our current first eleven struggle to get a game as we move onwards and upwards, which we will never do with the likes of Shankland and Boyle, this year's Moult and Walker.

30.) 21 Jan 2020 18:38:39
100% agree conenanter mate.



18 Jan 2020 17:10:07
Ed01, given your detailed knowledge of all things Liverpool, do you think any of squad players in need of game time is likely to join us for remainder of season?


{Ed001's Note - I am not expecting any to join Rangers in Jan. There aren't really many left there to choose from as most have gone out on loan that were spare.}

1.) 18 Jan 2020 19:56:34
Bankie, why would you want to sign another team's dregs and give them game time for the rest of this vital season?

2.) 18 Jan 2020 20:17:56
Covenanter, would hardly call a quality player in need of game time with best club team in the world as “dregs”. Believe we need a quality reinforcement in a forward position capable of making an immediate impact. With the euros in summer, a number of clubs in the top leagues have players in need of game time to secure international selection. With cup runs we could have 30 games left this season. We cannot depend on Morelos to be available and the burden is too much for Defoe at this point in career.

3.) 19 Jan 2020 00:56:06
You have been told by the Ed - who you asked - that most of them are already out on loan. Name just one 'quality' player at Liverpool who is currently not on loan and is so far away from the first team he has no chance of playing - and who is an internationalist looking for game time before the Euros? And how could a third choice striker make an 'immediate impact'?

4.) 19 Jan 2020 08:47:32
Covenanter, looks like your asking me the question I asked the Ed. My point is not limited to Liverpool.

5.) 19 Jan 2020 15:46:34
Bankie, you only mentioned Liverpool. As I am not psychic, I cannot read your mind from afar. You also didn't answer a single one of my points to you, so we'll call it a day.

6.) 19 Jan 2020 16:13:53
Covenanter, my post clearly states “a number of clubs”.

7.) 19 Jan 2020 18:32:07
Your second post does, it was a swift change from your first post after I queried it. In case you don't remember, you first posted:
Ed01, given your detailed knowledge of all things Liverpool, do you think any of squad players in need of game time is likely to join us for remainder of season?
Can't see any reference there to 'a number of clubs'.

8.) 19 Jan 2020 19:01:11
Calm down mate and enjoy the cup draw.

9.) 19 Jan 2020 19:49:58
I'm never anything else but calm, I just cannot see any point in anything you've been saying.

10.) 19 Jan 2020 22:34:49
Don’t worry about it mate, we can discuss another time in a different thread.



07 Jan 2020 22:43:59
Looks like Morelos not present for initial Dubai training session.


1.) 07 Jan 2020 23:16:30
Did the same last year. Joined a day or 2 late because he's in colombia.

2.) 07 Jan 2020 23:50:20
That's because he's in Colombia. Like rangers have posted him twice now saying he's in his home town over the past week and half.

3.) 08 Jan 2020 00:29:50
Was the same last winter break. He done the same charity match as last winter too and was later than the rest getting to winter camp.

4.) 08 Jan 2020 00:43:42
Still in Columbia for the charity stuff.

5.) 08 Jan 2020 05:58:31
Hope it is just charity stuff and not sitting with his agent picking were he wants to play next the young boy can go to the top. Morales please stay at least to end of season brilliant little striker. Have to laugh at my mate didn't rate him ha ha said Christie better play.

6.) 08 Jan 2020 13:07:18

7.) 08 Jan 2020 22:53:24
Bankie, just read steven gerrard says alfie is spending extra time with his family, as he is suspended and wouldn't be playing for a few weeks due to ban, good on the gaffer, quality family time, for alfie.

8.) 09 Jan 2020 09:00:36
That's right let's reward his stupidness as much as I like Alfie I'm sorry but the amount of sitters this guy has missed against them is unreal this guy will never score against Celtic and I'm sorry but you can't be a Rangers striker who cannot score against them and before people bring up Kris Boyds record bear in mind amount of old firm games he was on bench for.

9.) 09 Jan 2020 11:56:10
Christie cannot even scratch morelos balls when it comes to quality.

10.) 09 Jan 2020 13:50:55
Aye ok stiv 👍.

11.) 09 Jan 2020 18:30:04
stiv are you real, it wouldn't bother me if Alf never scored against them provided we win. some people are not real.

12.) 10 Jan 2020 23:28:38
Yes I'm real to many of our fans are blinkered when it comes to Alfie he is in great form this season but like Tore Flo back in day he is a let down against them lot from east he is a liability at times and is no use to us suspended how can you be a Rangers great striker when he consistently misses sitters and I mean GLARING SITTERS everytime he plays them i'm sorry but i'm a realist he is not worth 20 million based on scoring goald against St Mirren and Hamilton in League if you want to be considered in that bracket then do it in most important matches of our season which is against them.

13.) 10 Jan 2020 23:30:11
Yes, try to make it sound sinister. He has leave to do charitable work in Colombia, nothing else.

14.) 11 Jan 2020 07:41:27
He more than anyone else needs to train always looks unfit and carrying stone too much.

15.) 11 Jan 2020 08:39:59
Suspended for 3 games perhaps does not need to report to Dubai on time I suppose.



04 Jan 2020 13:43:36
In talks with Goal scoring right sided player who played against us in Europe this season.


1.) 04 Jan 2020 14:44:14
What team?

2.) 04 Jan 2020 14:58:20

3.) 04 Jan 2020 15:16:23
What team? What’s his name?

4.) 04 Jan 2020 15:18:17
Bankie do u have a name.

5.) 04 Jan 2020 15:21:20
Does he have a name🤔👍.

6.) 04 Jan 2020 15:31:07

7.) 04 Jan 2020 16:27:58
Berghuis would be out our price range. Might be Fassnacht for young boys or sinisterra from Feyenoord.

8.) 04 Jan 2020 17:15:08
Hopefully not the lad from Gibraltar 😜.

9.) 04 Jan 2020 18:05:15
Liked the look of the 2 right sided players from the Danish team we played.

10.) 04 Jan 2020 19:16:17
The big lad Kaba from midtjylland he was a player.

11.) 04 Jan 2020 21:56:37
Believe it’s Feyenoord, don’t know identity of player.

12.) 05 Jan 2020 00:29:53
Can u try and find out at least just sounds like you’ve made it up.

13.) 05 Jan 2020 00:35:33
Yup the big lad from danish mob was a good player.

14.) 05 Jan 2020 01:08:53
Steven Berghuis would be my guess, he was their right winger in both games.

15.) 05 Jan 2020 04:57:31
No specifics?
100% made up 😂 Weirdo.

16.) 05 Jan 2020 10:20:38
Couldn't afford berghuis I font think.

17.) 05 Jan 2020 12:11:06
Ano lol
We are interested in a male player from a European club who has 2 feet and can speak English, can’t say anything more just now but it’s FACT and watch this space.

18.) 05 Jan 2020 14:53:14
The Glasgow Rangers heard this one too, must be true mate.

19.) 05 Jan 2020 17:22:14
In your head probably.

20.) 05 Jan 2020 22:25:10
I heard he had hair as well - i wonder who this mystery player is.

Sir Struth, next season I will be looking for a stronger starting 11 and improved squad. I will also be looking for SG to be a wiser and significantly improved team manager in all aspects of the role. We have improved dramatically under SG. Performances like today demonstrate that whilst improvements have been made we have a long way to go. In the words of the other Bill Struth "no matter the days of anxiety that come our way, we shall emerge stronger".


1.) 24 Feb 2020 09:47:16
The team look too weak for my liking, back 4 yesterday complete shambles and not good enough.



23 Feb 2020 15:41:57
Poor shout taking off Morelos today. Even when he is not scoring he is a handful, occupies 2 defenders and provides an out ball.




21 Feb 2020 20:25:23
So how do we approach the match in Portugal now that we have a fighting chance in the tie. Morelos not available so the over the top long ball tactic he performed last night is unlikely to be effective. Remember away tactics of Sir Walter in Europe back in 2007 had success when we sat-in, frustrated and hit on the break. Hopefully Jack available to provide additional midfield cover.


1.) 21 Feb 2020 20:37:05
This is far the best team we have met they will be even harder over threre mate had morelos been there it would help as he drifts off i fear the worst a 3 or 4 nil hope am wrong.

2.) 21 Feb 2020 20:51:35
If we go there and play open football believe will get thumped 3 or 4 nil.

3.) 21 Feb 2020 21:09:17
Big Blue Bear, how about the fact that we may just perform like the last 30 minutes last night and get a result, you mention Alfie, once again he does something stupid and misses a vital game for us. We'll be just fine without him, trust me, have some belief man, we saw a vulnerable side to them in the final half hour last night, good team or not.

4.) 21 Feb 2020 22:34:14
Right Irvger, the young centreback made a number of errors and looked really shaky under pressure. Make no mistake, we definitely had them rattled. Our away support will make some noise and hopefully roar us on to qualification.

5.) 21 Feb 2020 22:58:31
Bankie, last nights game put me in mind of how we've played this season, braga were a good quick passing team, we've played like that, and we've lost games in the same manner braga did last night, let's hope we kick on, tho we do play better in league, when we play euro games.

6.) 21 Feb 2020 23:47:08
Porto are a better team. We should be more than capable of getting through.

7.) 22 Feb 2020 12:38:25
Porto were a lot more tentative at Ibrox, yeah Braga are classy, got to have belief after the tides turning as they did. We have more than enough to win against Braga away if we play at our best.

Unfortunately if we don’t we could be in trouble, I for one will be remaining optimistic we can progress.

8.) 22 Feb 2020 19:02:47
Going by the game stats they had 12 shots, 4 on target.
We had 10 shots , 8 on target so this 4 - 0 prediction to them is way off target ( pardon the pun ) unless they start practising between now and Wednesday.
Oh and these were official UEFA stats. 👍.



18 Feb 2020 15:06:30
Is Barasic fit and available or Thursday?


1.) 18 Feb 2020 16:52:07
Still struggling, touch and go spparently.

2.) 18 Feb 2020 17:57:24
No flanno in euro pool so Halliday will be in at LB, think it will be flat back four anyway with not much emphasis on fullbacks pushing on, so aslong as he holds his position and wins his share of 50/ 50s he will do fine.

3.) 18 Feb 2020 19:34:56
He’s 50/ 50 but my gut says he will start. Big loss if he’s out.

4.) 18 Feb 2020 20:39:47
U wonder tho if we want to risk him and have him miss longer.

5.) 18 Feb 2020 21:05:42
We better hope Borna makes it.
If we need to rely on Halliday at LB then Francisco Trincao will take him to bits if they play him.
I can never understand why we play guys out of position.

6.) 19 Feb 2020 01:15:58
Herwego, he would need to be 100pc, before gerrard would use him, ide imagine, mate.

7.) 19 Feb 2020 08:47:25
I'll tell you what guys, if I was a young player just now, I wouldn't want to play for Rangers when you know your own fans are happiest when they're kicking you in the nuts, c'mon guys, get the chins off the floor, let's get behind the full squad and the Manager, and let's stop building Alfie up, he's a trier, but there are better players out there.



12 Feb 2020 15:01:28
U19s heavily defeated and outclassed by Athletico Madrid at Firhill, final score 4 nil.


1.) 12 Feb 2020 16:42:23
Bankie, I felt the big difference was that Athletico were more clinical and in Raquelme, they had a class player who had young Paterson on toast most of the game. I thought though that Rangers played some good football, but Mebude and Young-Coombes when he came on were both ineffective, Kai Kennedy and our Centre Half both looked effective, so well done on getting to that stage of the competition.

2.) 12 Feb 2020 18:29:05
Agree Kai Kennedy did well.

Good point sweep although to be fair recall Katic scoring a few in the past. When fit I believe Helander is our best CH although few agree on here. Katic has looked vulnerable for last few games and think Edmundson should have started yesterday.

Docherty should have been available to play part today, bad shout letting him go out on loan.
