Aribo, Kamala and Morelos all want to leave this window. Kent undecided.


1.) 27 Jun 2022 15:28:49
Yip 3 Weill bring us over £30 million easy we should be able to replace them with that considering they cost us under £1.5 million.

2.) 27 Jun 2022 15:29:49
How can you be taking seriously when you can’t even get our players name right?

3.) 27 Jun 2022 15:47:18
Apologies Kamara.

4.) 27 Jun 2022 15:47:38
Then how can your reply be taken seriously when your grammar is a mess?

5.) 27 Jun 2022 15:52:31
The spelling on here is atrocious. I was half wanting Goldson to leave so I didn't have to see Goldston typed anymore.

6.) 27 Jun 2022 16:02:51
Lee m c give him a break, can be slip off finger or even predictive text the guy is a reliable and regular poster.
What have you contributed to the site

Bankie is this your opinion or are you getting info.

7.) 27 Jun 2022 16:09:17
Info John25, thanks for your defence from dotted t and crossed I brigade.

8.) 27 Jun 2022 16:11:24
Pretty sure the club won’t allow the 3 to go… only an opinion but think Aribo and Kent might go… something telling me Alfie will sign a new contract … where else will his wife get such magic balloons.

9.) 27 Jun 2022 16:21:32
Didn't know we all had to have English degree to post on here. It's pretty pathetic if a response is just to pull someone up for spelling or grammar.

10.) 27 Jun 2022 16:24:13
Was getting info that both Morelos and Kent were close to new contracts.

Interesting couple of weeks ahead.

11.) 27 Jun 2022 16:24:38
They won’t have any choice if they don’t sign new deals.

12.) 27 jun 2022 16:41:47
pair of clowns, and rfc, you sho know better, bankie has been on here for years, anyone, and a i mean anyone can click on predictive text

btw i’ve said a few times believe aribo wanted away, and i still believe that.

13.) 27 Jun 2022 16:47:17
To be fair sometimes depends on phone. some finger taps don't register or you hit reply before checked for predictive text.

14.) 27 Jun 2022 16:52:17
Every transfer window our top players will be linked with other clubs especially Morelos, Aribo, Kent, and Kamara.
If a choice had to be made you would opt to keep Morelos ( goals scored), Kent ( assists) .

15.) 27 Jun 2022 16:52:42
No they don't.

16.) 27 Jun 2022 17:32:55
Evening bears.

Can I highlight another angle that might be being missed here.

Apart from Kent, who we paid £7 for, could you see a situation where the Club are happy to hang on to Aribo, Morelos and Kamara and accept that we might lose them for nothing? It’s not as if we paid big money for the three (I think Aribo was about £500k, Morelos was £1m and I think we got Kamara for a bag of chips! )

Getting another full season out of them might be worth letting them go next year for nothing. Especially is it helped us win 56 and we had a decent run in Europe.

Ideally they would sign new deals, or be sold for a kings ransom, but I can see the benefits of them staying as they are such a big part of the team. The only concern would be if they then went on to sign pre-contracts with other sides in the winter window and ‘eased off it’ but isn’t that what we pay the management team to deal with? Keeping them all motivated whilst under contract, regardless of contract status, is part of their role.

17.) 27 Jun 2022 17:43:28
Love how the newbies having a go at peoples spelling we have the spelling police on here now. Some folk obviously never had predictive texts? If that’s all you can moan about have a day off.

I have a feeling Alfredo wants to leave but would love him to stay.

Think aribo will be away and kamara can go.

18.) 27 Jun 2022 17:45:25
TT rfc was having a go at the two new posters not bankie.

19.) 27 Jun 2022 17:55:32
Tom apart from predictive text some on here may be dyslexic, have one eye or worse.
It’s funny how many who contribute little love to run others down.

Bankie u certainly don’t need to apologise.

20.) 27 Jun 2022 18:00:12
Ballance sfth if someone offered 10mil for buff is there a player we can replace him with for that money or less. I think we need to trade players at the top of their value ie bassey and kent.

21.) 27 Jun 2022 18:02:21
It’s not just predictive text, I’ve sent a few messages without my contact lenses in and when I read them with my lenses in I’m surprised you good people gave me the courtesy of a reply my spelling is that bad.

22.) 27 Jun 2022 18:04:30
Hanging onto players who are openly wanting to leave is not good idea. Tackles won't be made, runs won't be made, etc etc.
Let's hope (as we keep saying) GVB has plan from 1st July?

23.) 27 Jun 2022 18:18:58
We cannot allow these players to run down their contracts and leave for nothing, three of our most valuable assets that would be financial madness. Either sign new contract now, or else start trying to find them a new club asap. Hopfooly me typng n spellin is off the requirred standird!

24.) 27 Jun 2022 18:26:29
Is it not possible that the players who want to leave just want to guaruntee the club get a fee?
Same as laudrup tried to do back in what? 97? David murray said some things are more important.

25.) 27 Jun 2022 18:28:40
I'm pretty confident that we have replacements identified for these Guys if they do move on.

Also think it's smart business by the board to extend the contracts of some of the older heads - as it provides continuity of we do lose them.

Either way I'm not worried.

26.) 27 Jun 2022 18:32:15
Collin hearing same re Alf kent and now Bassey.

27.) 27 Jun 2022 18:32:54
Alloa and we always will reply.

28.) 27 Jun 2022 18:34:03
2 blue we must have wet to same school, I understood u perfectly.

29.) 27 Jun 2022 18:57:23
Not nice at all participating in this behaviour towards bankie or to any others for that matter by snearing over some spelling mistakes?What kind of people are you as its not called for and not nice ?If that's all you guys can/ want to pick up on then shame on you! Give it a rest and contribute on rumours/ stories regarding our great club and not trying to be nasty to some of our posters on here!

30.) 27 Jun 2022 19:04:13
Think we have reached a new low pulling guys up for spelling. only my onion.

31.) 27 Jun 2022 19:48:06
I think things will happen after Thursday, Friday 1/ 7/ 22 and that's the end of the financial year. We not spent anything on transfers. but have brought in lots of money. The accounts should/ will be very encouraging. If we had spent now it would maybe took the shine of good results, but after Thursday any spend will be in next year's accounts.

32.) 27 Jun 2022 20:12:24
I'm forever pulling people up on emails for bad spelling etc but am pleased to say I haven't done so on this forum.

The comments from many on this thread, such as AlloaGer and John25 are very well made, as I hadn't considered at all people who want to contribute and have dyslexia, eyesight issues, other health conditions or simply busy lives.

I'm going to try to be more tolerant of this when dealing with written correspondence and I think it would make for a far more enjoyable forum (and life) if everyone considered this.

I'm all for a laugh and enjoy poking a bit of fun now and then, but there can be a fine line between fun and spite. I would hope most (or all) on this forum are aiming for the former.

We all want the same thing, namely a successful football club that does the right things and that we can love and be proud of. We're all bears.

33.) 27 Jun 2022 20:13:17
Nobody actually knows who is wanting to stay or go. Every single person had goldson nailed on to leave.

34.) 27 Jun 2022 20:19:33
? my spelling is just terrible.

35.) 27 Jun 2022 20:20:57
Ca'nt bee duing wiv puir speling and grammer.

36.) 27 Jun 2022 20:33:39
Excellent response and appreciated. 1872
I refer to myself re sight and dyslexia, some people need to think twice before they speak once.

Also I’m a big boy and it’s says more about them than the vast majority off excellent teddy bears on here

U only need to see the amount who stood with Bankie, we are family.

37.) 27 Jun 2022 20:44:09
Sometimes I'm on this site on lunch break after a very difficult morning. I'm not going check my spelling or grammar.

38.) 27 Jun 2022 20:58:23
John that was my sentiment exactly but someone seems to like to edit what's said ? as if only a few are allowed.

39.) 27 Jun 2022 21:16:47
Great point shooting from the hip. Whole time just presuming it's sign or go for the money but club is in good condition and last season showed we're prepared to let them go down eg Goldson. Problem last season was complacent attitude of some both players and staff. Don't think we'll start like that again.

40.) 27 Jun 2022 21:18:04
Never poked fun at Bankie’s spelling guys. All I highlighted was the name of our player was spelt wrong so I couldn’t take what he said serious. I completely understand the comments made, and would like to apologise if it was taken in a way in which I’ve upset people and especially Bankie

I appreciate the input of everyone and I’ll try choose my wording properly in future. ??.

41.) 27 Jun 2022 21:43:34
Guys this happens every pre season. tons of new accounts who just appear and have a go at everything and anything . fishing rods being cast all over the shop.

42.) 27 Jun 2022 22:10:51
Who cares if the spelling is wrong we are all Rangers Supporters.
Keep posting everyone. ?.

43.) 27 Jun 2022 22:43:51
Correct copland1.

44.) 27 Jun 2022 23:06:56
Lee mcf. Fair enough.

45.) 28 Jun 2022 04:23:37
Oryg, that responce had layers.



25 Jun 2022 09:35:43
Diallo returning on season long loan.


1.) 25 Jun 2022 10:05:56
Does this stem from Alan Huttons interview in the sun where he said he wants him back and they said he's "tipped for a return"?

2.) 25 Jun 2022 10:41:40
Doubt it.

3.) 25 Jun 2022 10:58:20
probably would be good but i doubt there's much truth in this rumour.

4.) 25 Jun 2022 13:01:41
Is that an alan hutton interview given to football insider, ripped off by the sun, then turned into 'Diallo to return to Rangers'?

5.) 25 Jun 2022 14:48:41
We need a quality right sides forward who can go straight into 1st team not a kid who'll pull out of a 60/ 40 challenge.

6.) 25 Jun 2022 17:17:20
Would be ok as back up still need a starter rw. Some fans will never forgive him for the 50/ 50 vs Celtic just want players with a bit of fight in them.



24 Jun 2022 10:05:02
Serious Interest now in Kamara and Aribo and expect both leave over next few weeks generating £30m. Also expect Morelos to leave later in window for around £12m. Hearing nothing about Kent.


1.) 24 Jun 2022 10:18:19
Aribo had a clause that activates on the first of July which means he’s available for £10m.

I think him and Kamara will both go and Kent/ Morelos both to sign new contracts.

2.) 24 Jun 2022 10:27:34
Bankie I reckon 10 aribo.
12 kamara.

3.) 24 Jun 2022 10:29:42
Not a chance we are letting go of 4 starters 2 will get sold 2 will sign new deals.

4.) 24 Jun 2022 10:31:03
Never heard of a clause to be activated for so much money for a player with 12 months left.

Let’s hope rangers hold out for very least 10m if any bids do come in.

5.) 24 Jun 2022 10:55:02
That’s mob sold French eddy and ajer for big money with a year left on there contracts.

6.) 24 Jun 2022 11:00:59
Tango they calculate all add on fees into price.
Ie frimpong, Eduardo Ajmer
They then report up front costs in accounts.

It was looked at b4 and shown to be case.

7.) 24 Jun 2022 11:11:04
Bankie, I think you are being very optimistic at 30m for the 2.
Imo, we will get less than20 with a sell on added.
Tango rfc, we have never (despite the European runs last 2 years) been able to command top dollar.
This is going to be rough ride.

8.) 24 Jun 2022 11:28:28
If it comes off it will be good to see the business model of buying low and selling for a decent figure bearing fruition.

9.) 24 Jun 2022 11:43:42
No way do we get 30m for aribo and kamara.

10.) 24 Jun 2022 12:04:57
Herewego I tend to agree. 22 million with add ons and sell on would be great business.

11.) 24 Jun 2022 12:06:03
If we get 20M fir Kamara and Aribo it will be interesting to see what Gio gets of that to invest in replacements. They need to be replaced with starters not squad fillers.

12.) 24 Jun 2022 12:26:09
Can we stop calling Celtic players by their nicknames it’s embarrassing tbh, one of my pet hates lol.

13.) 24 Jun 2022 12:41:04
Buff is not leaving for me.

14.) 24 Jun 2022 14:04:35
I'd take 12 million for kamara any time, thought he had a very poor season.

15.) 24 Jun 2022 15:54:13
I hear that Crystal Palace have indicated that Butland could be included in any deal to sign Aribo now that they have signed Sam Johnstone. If Aribo is to go then, depending on how much cash is included in the deal, that could be a positive move.

I would have thought that Aribo would prefer a move to London rather than Nottingham and he would learn more at Palace than he would at Nottingham.

16.) 24 jun 2022 16:33:03
i think most of those names will be gone shortly, to be replaced

alf, aribo ( certainty) kamara, and pos kent, if anyone wants to pay for exceptional inconsistency, imo.

17.) 24 Jun 2022 18:00:12
Saw one of the daily rags linking Kent with Villa and Man Utd. Have said for a while Kamara and Aribo would go this window and I’d be fine with that. I just want it done early so we can replace quickly. I think £22-£25m for the two is achievable. Really hope we get Kent and Morelos signed up on extensions.



08 Jun 2022 19:57:48
Think seen name on here before, Stefan Moreno a German keeper being considered.


1.) 08 Jun 2022 22:06:53
Also goes by Stefan Ortega excellent keeper, I mentioned last week on here we enquired about a German GK and CB. He was the goalie but wants to stay in Germany.

2.) 09 Jun 2022 09:29:34
Ortega would be a brilliant signing and as far as I know he is available on a free. He would be an excellent acquisition if we could convince him to come to Scotland.

3.) 09 Jun 2022 10:23:32
Exactly the type of goalkeeper we should be looking to get, the longer we hear nothing about McGregor retiring the more likely he'll get another one year contract imo, should this happen McGregor runs the risk of damaging his legacy at the club as one of our best keepers should he have a poor season, if he leaves now legacy as one of our best keepers is intact.



24 May 2022 17:51:11
Ramsey keen to return on pay for play deal if contract in Italy cancelled.


1.) 24 May 2022 19:48:00
I’d give him a pay as u play think now that we’ve got over the pen moss he’s a world class player we’re luck to be able to get.
Especially if we sell aribo
Only thing is I see lowry as a 10 so hagi Lowry amd Ramsey is maybe too much. Would need to send Lowry out on loan which wouldn’t be a bad thing let him get 30-40 games under his belt for a st mirren or someone of that ilk.

2.) 24 May 2022 22:01:57

3.) 24 May 2022 23:48:45
Lowry out on loan . are you fkn mad!

4.) 25 May 2022 00:22:26
Well what donhh your suggest gms?
If we have Ramsey and have I as both number 10s amd may play 3 cms in old form or Europe then when does Lowry get his chance? Bear in moind aribo is still there atm aswell
Me personally I tntjnm Lowry out to a ole
Premiership club to play a full season and sell aribo while we can get money for him we can’t have another goldson. 2 players for each position means we need to sell or loan com
On sense is Lowry on loan or don’t bring Ramsey back can’t have all 3 or even 4
I rate Lowry I think he could be the best player we’ve produced since Barry.

5.) 25 May 2022 01:31:42
Would not mind giving him 15k a week if he gets injured it’s a loss of under 1million got to be worth a punt .

6.) 25 May 2022 08:07:48
O would be utterly shocked if lowry went on loan, I wouldn't be shocked if someone came in with a big bid for him though,

7.) 25 May 2022 10:20:13
Lowry would be a better option for us and hopefully features on a regular basis in the first team.
An absolute outstanding talent.
Nobody is doubting Ramseys talent but we all know he is injury prone plus the financial outlay to bring him back to the club would be substantial.
Think Ramseys future might be at a club in the EPL.

8.) 25 May 2022 10:27:55
I don't think a Pay as you Play deal is even a real thing now so I would file this under nonsense.

9.) 25 May 2022 10:45:02
How’s it not a real thing, u pay a basic wage then pay an agreed sum when in match day squad

Exactly deal Flanagan was on at rangers.

10.) 25 May 2022 11:14:22
That is different. That is a contract with appearance bonuses. Players used to get a 'Pay as you Play' deal in which they effectively didn't have a contract and were paid on a game by game basis. That is no longer a thing is what I meannt.

either way, ramsey is not joining us for a low wage with incentives for playing. In no universe.

11.) 25 May 2022 11:28:33
Walter we know nothing.

12.) 25 May 2022 12:13:08
Cool Walter. Deal u mentioned was no longer legal to protect young players.

13.) 25 May 2022 12:20:52
Yeah that's what I was meaning John. As I said though, either way he won't be signing for us I don't think.

14.) 25 May 2022 13:59:23
Time will tell.

15.) 25 May 2022 21:35:16
Ramsey caught the Rangers bug and was distraught after euro final and days after. He may want to come back as he feels he owes the fans. He’s made his cash and a low basic with performance related bonuses I think could be a option both parties will seriously look at.

Build team around the boy Lowry just as Dick Advocaat did around a young Barry Ferguson.


1.) 03 Jul 2022 15:07:11
Nae pressure.

2.) 03 Jul 2022 15:08:04
Hopefully we see him get 15-20 appearances over the course of the season - which may be tough with Arfield getting an extension.

3.) 03 Jul 2022 15:19:13
No chance we will build team around lowry the now.

4.) 03 Jul 2022 15:25:07
Jeezo he’s had a couple of appearances let’s not build him up too much.

5.) 03 Jul 2022 15:34:03
Watched a lot of Lowry boy has talent, has that boy of magic in him but barry was a totally different player to what Lowry is / will be, completely different players, Lowry can change games but he will never control games and I don't mean that disrespectful just purely position based.

6.) 03 Jul 2022 15:44:46
Jeezo ?.

7.) 03 Jul 2022 16:09:33
It would be good to give the lad a fair crack at some games Bankie and, in that respect, I agree with what you're saying. However, I think GJD83 is bang on in what he says about Lowry's potential to impact on - and control - matches.



26 Jun 2022 13:33:35
Understand impatience and need for some supporters to see us add to the squad and sign big names this month (June) . It's just not how our model works and quite correctly GVB, Wilson and the Board taking their time. There will be ins and outs over the next 12 days and further ins and outs before the window closes in August. We all need to be patient. Don't mistake the lack of signings as a lack of focus and activity.


1.) 26 Jun 2022 14:21:25
Well said @Bankie

Just seen the previous post mention we have no money??

After just smashing all previous years revenue by over £30 mil

Approximate breakdown of 2021/ 22 revenue

£42 mil season ticket sales and match day revenue
£17 mil Europa league prize money
£29 mil commercial revenue
£10 mil upfront Nathan Patterson fee
£4 mil upfront SG and staff fee

Previous season best revenue was in 2007/ 8 @ £64.5 mil

We have no money??

Patience, trust the way we are now doing business

Very impressive.

2.) 26 Jun 2022 15:08:10
Great post Bankie. I don't get the panic and hysteria - work will be going on behind the scenes.

3.) 26 Jun 2022 15:26:01
Good post bankie, if we want to sign a couple off players who are under contract we can’t till Friday.

It’s only bosmans we can agree a deal with, then register after Friday.

4.) 26 Jun 2022 16:18:54
Yes John, likewise only after Friday we can receive bids for any of our players under contract.

5.) 26 Jun 2022 16:18:57
100000% agree.

6.) 26 Jun 2022 16:27:52
We can sign players before Friday, as plenty of others clubs have. Just can't register them till friday.

7.) 26 Jun 2022 18:34:53
I did not write that well, if player not out off contract u don’t buy now when get him free Friday

Only 64 days to go.

8.) 26 Jun 2022 18:35:56
Also here we go new financial year starts 1/ 7 so keep accounts good for this year.

9.) 26 Jun 2022 19:47:43
John that’s not true we can sign players under contract before July 1st just can’t register man city done it with haaland.



27 May 2022 07:26:36
From memory we looked after Fleck very well as a youngster and he displayed little loyalty and jumped ship when we needed him.


1.) 27 May 2022 08:34:14
flech not leave before all that.

2.) 27 May 2022 09:30:42
Fleck left at a young age yes

Gilmuir left at a young age yes

Most on here would like gilmuir bsck wether on loan etc

Whats the difference both left and maybe / maybe not both might resign wether buy or loan.

3.) 27 May 2022 10:31:24
Fleck left due to lack of game time.
Also he was being played at the time out of position as a left sided attacker and when he went to Coventry I believe after us became a centre mid.

Think we bought into the Scottish rooney patter at the time and never seen the boys potential. Bad coaching really.

4.) 27 May 2022 15:40:52
Fleck left July 20 12 after rejecting contract transfer to new owners.

5.) 27 May 2022 18:39:36
Fleck fell out with McCoist then asked for his contract to be torn up during the Charles Green takeover.



23 May 2022 14:56:58
Paid £750k for McCann, needs to be around 1st team next season if reports on his form are accurate.


1.) 23 May 2022 15:19:27
I like what I've seen of him so far, Bankie.



16 May 2022 15:13:19
Starting team Wednesday







1.) 16 May 2022 15:23:12
Most of the team picks itself apart from 2 places which will be shared by Ramsay, Kamara and Wright. This game we will need most of the midfield to play a part as the 34 degree geat will definitely play a part. I'd say Arfield, Davis and Ramsay/ Kamara will come on at some point like the Scottish Cup semi final.

2.) 16 May 2022 15:59:51
Spot on sweep, the heat/ humidity will have a huge impact.
Got to throw everything at it though for once in a lifetime crack at Euro glory.

3.) 16 May 2022 16:09:14
Still think it might be the same team that started v RB Leipzig.
Probably hinges on the fitness of Roofe.

4.) 16 May 2022 16:28:18
I've got a feeling Ramsay is going score in the final.

5.) 16 May 2022 16:59:44
Can’t see roofe starting may come off the bench I agree with OP team tho think lundstrum will be in defence.

6.) 16 May 2022 17:38:55
Still think we will start with 4-2-3-1 but GVB is known to change formations during games.

7.) 16 May 2022 18:13:18
The heat and humidity will also affect Frankfurt, but agree we have to go for this. We're more than capable.

8.) 16 May 2022 19:45:30
We won't play with a back 4.
