Whats your thoughts on Souter coming to us next season? Personally I'm not really impressed. Another player for the treatment room?

Baxterboy

1.) 20 May 2022 21:46:52
I’m delighted, knows the game, let’s give him a chance fgs.


2.) 20 May 2022 21:48:23
I don't think he's an upgrade on what we have tbh the players linked to us are underwhelming I hope RW doesn't think he can rebuild our squad with frees or cheaper buys.


3.) 20 May 2022 21:58:30
Not overly excited but will give him a chance to prove he is good enough.


4.) 20 May 2022 22:27:51
I really like Souter but going to need a couple of centre backs I reckon. Hate to say it but would take anything we can get for helander. Cracking player when he’s fit but he never is. Not overly disappointed Goldson is going too. Always thought he was a bit suspect although granted last season he was brilliant.


5.) 20 May 2022 22:42:40
Great signing, best CB in league this season until he got injured again. That is the only question mark over him. Hopefully some of the work he had done over recent months means he comes to us fighting fit and stays like that for the season to come. Souttar/ Bassey central defence could be immense.


6.) 20 May 2022 23:05:26
Reckon we'll have a top CB lined up. Souttar seems to me like ideal replacement for Balogun. Good reliable backup. Hope he can get over injury problems or he just adds to the list.


7.) 20 May 2022 23:22:15
John Soutter who was widely regarded as the best performing centre half in the league prior to his early operation? And you aren't happy? No pleasing some people.


8.) 20 May 2022 23:31:30
Helander- never fit
Balogun- hardly ever fit
Souter- couldn't spell fit.

Our defence is looking good eh.

At this rate it will be Bassey and Lundstram at CB.


9.) 20 May 2022 23:47:11
he definitely should have been brought in before the game at parkhead that probably ended our league hopes, soutter would have made a massive difference in that game imo

i said at the time it was a big mistake not getting him in, it left rangers short of a ch and hearts with a very unhappy player, it was nonsense and it might just have cost us the league.


10.) 21 May 2022 00:35:12
Craig, helander won't be hear next season, neither will balagow (thoi'dgive him a year exten) souer, we will just have to wait n see eh.


11.) 21 May 2022 09:29:17
If he stays fit I think he will be fine.


12.) 21 May 2022 10:26:20
Souter when fit is an excellent centre back however we will need to sign at least two more and that assumes that young King is elevated to the match day squad. We need to get rid of Simpson and Helander who is never fit and I really don't see Balogun being given a new contract.
I would expect Bassey to be our first choice left back, hence why I say we need two new quality centre backs signed in the summer.


13.) 21 May 2022 10:48:00
John25, it's very difficult to give him a chance when he's mostly in the treatment room.


14.) 21 May 2022 11:09:25
John soutter is a great player but always injured another Ryan jack/ kemar roofe a worry.


15.) 21 May 2022 11:10:20
Not even in the door and negativity starting already. Came back from serious injury to be a Scotland International. 100%er and can strike a ball. At the minute Goldson wants to leave. Souttar wants to come. Know who i'm backing.


16.) 21 May 2022 11:52:21
What’s Goldson got to do with soutter coming it’s no about him .


17.) 21 May 2022 13:33:11
He is a no nonsense defender that does the basics well. He has been unlucky with injury but when fit he won't look out of place plus that's a homegrown player as well. He should be 1st choice for national side when fit.


18.) 21 May 2022 13:40:26
He's not even played a game but let's write him off. Sack Wilson. Sack the board.


19.) 21 May 2022 13:42:27
Additionally, I really hope we keep Bassey at LCB. I think it will be far easier to get in a new left back than find a new left sided CB who has the qualities of Bassey.


20.) 21 May 2022 18:22:18
Must say was very impressed with souttar today.


21.) 21 May 2022 20:46:00
Paul Souttar was excellent today.


22.) 21 May 2022 22:19:41
Aw some on here are unbelievable man, I’m sorry but reading half the rubbish on here gives me brain damage! He was solid today! We’ve won the cup and some peoples instant thoughts are to write him off before he’s kicked a ball! Unreal! Mon the Rangers!


23.) 21 May 2022 22:23:20
And baring in mind barely kicked a ball for months! He was excellent! No wonder some players struggle at us with such fickle “fans”.


24.) 21 May 2022 22:40:04
Tango, apart from his recently repaired calf injury what other injuries has soter had mate?


25.) 22 May 2022 01:08:41
As mentioned previously in this thread Souttar is a very good addition providing he stays fit. I wouldn’t have Bassey at CB along side him as I think he’s a lot more affective at LB. Great engine and his delivery seems to be just getting better and better. He’s been an absolute steal!


26.) 22 May 2022 08:07:15
TrueBlue85,i still think at this moment in time in bassey's career, his best position is left back mate .


27.) 22 May 2022 08:23:53
Sir Walter - all about opinions. As long as he's signed to a new deal I really don't mind where he plays :-)


 

 

02 Apr 2022 17:31:58
Is there any truth Rangers may receive a substantial fine for pulling out the Oz tournament ?

Baxterboy

1.) 02 Apr 2022 18:22:16
Baxter exactly that a rumour, papers need to make up story to sell copies.


2.) 02 Apr 2022 18:51:10
If you believe the Record they are being sued for Breach of Contract. If we end up having to pay out on this then Parks should be sacked as should the CEO. The buck stops with them!


3.) 02 Apr 2022 19:48:28
If true BerkshireBlue I'm afraid it's the narrow minded protesting fans that should shoulder the blame. 4m in the pocket to potential owing money. Unreal.


4.) 02 Apr 2022 20:14:37
A fine from who?


5.) 02 Apr 2022 21:48:44
@john sadly not, a contract was signed and Rangers believe they've found a loophole to exit from. But if it was a signed deal, what possibly loophole to exit from have they used that won't uncur a penalty. You can't just walk away from a contract without cost.


6.) 02 Apr 2022 23:01:35
Have we got any feet left to shoot?


7.) 03 Apr 2022 00:41:44
Rfcrb, trying thinkin back ten year mate, our teams walked away from contracts, watch what you wish for, mate.


8.) 03 Apr 2022 06:48:05
Rfc rb. U absolutely can walk away 40 years in finance I done. It. Represented comps who done it mate.


9.) 03 Apr 2022 06:51:37
If that's the case we don't pull out then.


10.) 03 Apr 2022 06:58:56
Not seen anything on rumour but this was bound to happen. Certainly looks like we could be done for breach of contract and thought statement for pulling out seemed really flimsy.


11.) 03 Apr 2022 07:41:23
Correct MOC bear.


12.) 03 Apr 2022 08:42:40
We will not face any court action or have to pay any compensation for withdrawing from that non-event as the company who organised it did not pay Rangers the initial £250,000 due on 17/ 03/ 2022 due to a financial backer for the tournament pulling out and the funds not being available so it would be them that are in breach of contract hence there is nothing coming out from them on the subject, only the gutter press with their rumours . A timely withdrawal from Rangers was mutually beneficial to both sides.


13.) 03 Apr 2022 10:50:24
When the truth comes out and if it could be possible we could face a fine, you will soon see the manks sue us for loss of earnings just to put the boot into us and cause us more financial hardship.

It is no secret they (and some others) want Rangers out of Scottish football in order they can walk the domestic leagues unchallenged.

Just a thought to "bear" in mind. (pun) .

👿 👿 👿.


14.) 03 Apr 2022 14:43:20
Greg great post but some people don’t even want to consider it and would rather best the club with a stick . Ah well I suppose it takes all sorts .
Great post though and factual I believe.


15.) 03 Apr 2022 16:49:14
100% factual Molsgoals, the same as when i posted on 9th November that Steven Gerrard was having a 17.30 meeting in a London Hotel to discuss the terms for the Aston Villa job, i got slated for that information but that was also factual as everyone became aware of 24 hours later, we will hear no more about the Australian business unless it is from the Gutter Press .


16.) 03 Apr 2022 17:10:27
sadly because of these so called fans, and clubs' capitulation, i'm giving up the game and club.
sorry folks but needs must.


17.) 03 Apr 2022 21:56:53
CHARLIE I FOR ONE THANK YOU FOR YOUR INFO.


18.) 03 Apr 2022 21:57:33
Berkshire u can’t sack the shareholders.


19.) 03 Apr 2022 22:30:55
Good info Gregory202 sometimes we don't hear the facts. Personally I would have been for Rangers to play them in Oz for a decent payday. My opinion only as money dictates our game now, on the other hand I do appreciate fans who get annoyed with the board for accepting the invite. We will never be acceptable to the green side as it is always a religious/ political fight with them.
The big issue is how we unite our own fans and board, you will never please all the people all the time. Different backgrounds, different age groups, differing outlooks. Our hardcore fans don't always get the business decisions the board make. Also the board don't always get the fans passion. Just hope each side don't get too stubborn that we all lose like the past. Stay safe Bears.


20.) 04 Apr 2022 08:43:33
Thank you Tom Thumb myself and my brother post on here i am gregory202 he is charlie202 as we use the same log in for here it our posts come up under each others names for some reason - just to clear it up if there was some misunderstanding - very bad day yesterday - a clear out and rebuild essential now 🇬🇧🇬🇧.


21.) 05 Apr 2022 05:46:59
If the board thought there would be no backlash and didn't put in an escape clause to Oz friendly it just shows how inept they are. Should not be in charge of the club in my opinion the minute they start making rangers enemies because of league sponsor the season was always going smelltics way. Spl done all they can to help them and hinder us along with the media with the penalty stuff.


22.) 05 Apr 2022 15:39:07
Rangers will face no action re the Australian withdrawal, the two bob organisers are relieved that they are not facing court action from Rangers as i am led to believe they did not have sufficient funds in place before announcing it and were basically doing a “craig whyte” sadly enough and the investment group who were going to underwrite the whole shebang pulled the plug upon finding out that the two principals were next to potless, similar to the Whyte situation except we didn't find out quick enough to stop that shyster -! it will be interesting to see if any type of tournament at all takes place in Australia - 🇬🇧🇬🇧.


23.) 06 Apr 2022 22:02:02
John, reference Shareholders that are also on the Board and are Employyees of the Club surely it depends on the Terms of the Agreements that are in place. In Business it is normal process for the Shareholder Agreement and the Employment Contract as aBoard Member to be separate so that if they are not doing their job as they should then they can be removed.
I appreciate that it won't be easy with some of the Shareholders because of their holding but if they are not doing their job properly then it is incumbent on the CEO to take action. Of course that supposes that the CEO is strong enough to do so.
Of course as far as the PR Director and DoF are concerned, since they are not shareholders it would be much easier to remove them.
It is going to be an interesting 2022 / 2023.


24.) 07 Apr 2022 13:23:19
Dof is definitely a shareholder
All board members own multiple shares worth millions.
What shareholderson the board do u refer to do u refer to Berkshire that r employees
Do you mean park, park, wolthardt halstead Gibson king leatham etc.


25.) 07 Apr 2022 23:05:04
John, principally Park Jnr., but he might not be a shareholder. I didn't think that Wilson was a shareholder unless, like with other Corporations it forms part of his annual compensation, but that would be the two that I would want to see go and I have concerns regarding our Chairman's commitment to the Club given his other Business Interests, (ie his Motor Dealership Business etc) .
I would love to see Gibson, Wolhaardt, and I do wonder whether Gibson would have an interest in further investment in the Club.


 

 

05 Feb 2022 11:10:17
John25 what have you heard regarding Goldson and Barasic ? I haven't heard anything mate.

Baxterboy

1.) 05 Feb 2022 12:16:45
Wrote last year. They simply don’t talk after training ground incident. There was a major fallout due to Barisic not being committed to team.
If you watc some games they do not communicate on pitch.


2.) 05 Feb 2022 13:03:54
Great info John mate,

For me that's what makes you our top respected poster on this site.

A wee bit disappointed wi some of your reply's on the banter page, (as I've said before) that seem to be out of character recently, as you are generally a happy go lucky Rangers and family man who respected others opinions whether or not you agreed wi them.

Hope you do not take offence John, just expressing my feelings.

Cheers mate.


3.) 05 Feb 2022 14:10:21
John, I heard fallout due to the way goldson treated katic, constantly berating him. Barisic stood up for katic, I'm told that is reason they don't speak.


4.) 05 Feb 2022 14:18:17
I’m ok with players disliking each other as that’s a part of any relationship in life, Cole and Sherringham never spoke for years, but on the park they demanded professionalism and worked together for the team. If these two are not talking and it’s transcending onto the pitch, then they’re both at fault and can’t be trusted. So both should sit out IMO.


5.) 05 Feb 2022 14:47:06
Herewego, that's my info too - Goldson and Katic had a falling out a long time ago, and Barisic took his countryman's side. Either way, Goldson has an axe to grind with the pair of them.


6.) 05 Feb 2022 15:16:35
Herewego your view is accurate. Couple other things but the situation is very poor
Stu, it’s not a dislike, it affects the team dynamics, sides were taken . This has been ongoing for over a year.


7.) 05 Feb 2022 15:17:05
Blue I’m good, all about opinions mate.


8.) 05 Feb 2022 15:27:30
@john squad unity for a group of around 30 men is rare. There will always be cliques, fallouts, testy relationships. The job of the boss is to manage those and get the best out of the players despite it. Only time I can remember a squad all being in harmony was Walter's 9IAR. It really was drink together win together.


9.) 05 Feb 2022 15:31:46
One of them needs to be dropped and never play again.


10.) 05 Feb 2022 17:03:31
Agree storm, no one player is bigger than the club, this problem should have been sorted out between these two ages ago.


11.) 05 Feb 2022 17:56:18
Absolute rumour nonsense. Their is plenty of pictures online of them both celebrating together and also if you look back at videos on YouTube they can be seen celebrating together. I was going to say god knows where this stuff comes from but then I remembered the dirty hand of the Tim!


12.) 05 Feb 2022 17:57:25
Is that right Herewego55? I would have thought Katic would have been big enough to look after himself, and not take crap off of anyone! There is obviously a problem, and by all accounts, it's gotten worse over time.
I did hear a rumour about Borna, but like all rumours, I take things like this with a pinch of salt. Even If the rumour was to be true, I would hope it would have nothing to do with the fall out. And before anyone starts, I don't believe what I heard, and in no way am I saying there's any substance to this.


13.) 05 Feb 2022 18:04:01
Blue c. My info came straight from a Scottish player who played for us.


14.) 05 Feb 2022 18:16:57
When this was said I raised the issue that this could be a big problem. Many said its not an issue atall, many teams have players who didn't get on n stated arsenal players who had previous issues n said its common in squads n nothing to worry about. I disagreed n believe it has a big impact, if everyone is on the same wave length, pulling in the same direction. Willing to put their life on the line for each other. That's the sign of real team unity. A dressing room needs harmony, not kleeks or atmospheres u can cut with a knife or divided interests. They play for us, the fans who pay their wages. So should at least be able to put their egos to the side and put the people paying their wages first.


15.) 05 Feb 2022 19:23:30
Good response broxi.


16.) 05 Feb 2022 20:23:19
Barasic should have been sold when his stock was high and after 55. He’s now not guaranteed a jersey at LB with us or with his country. Paterson sale made fantastic business sense, however, moving on Tav and Borna would have aswel.


17.) 05 Feb 2022 21:12:33
BB it does happen a lot at teams and it’s not usually a problem unfortunately it looks like it could be this time.


18.) 05 Feb 2022 20:33:47
It’s funny all the connections on here and not one single peep about Ramsey or Zukowski. People only hear from sources when names are mentioned in the papers. NOBODY knows squat about what’s happening in the club. That’s the way it should be 👍🏻.


19.) 05 Feb 2022 21:35:26
Of course it impacts our performance. If you have 2 defenders who won't communicate it will cause mistakes. If this is true then it might explain a lot this season. We have been rank at the back. If true I would sell borna and give goldson a new contract. Even at amateur level 2 defenders not talking on the park causes problems. I'd be telling them straight on the park your a team you communicate off it do what you please but your grown men get a grip.


20.) 05 Feb 2022 23:23:09
Blue c you are completely wrong as John has had quite a few things correct and why are you bothered whether people know something or not.


21.) 05 Feb 2022 23:29:59
You know what I'm sick of goldson always blaming other people he fell out with katic too and barasic was katic friend a little funny don't you think. Just watch every time something goes wrong goldson waves his hands about like a child blaming and pointing to everyone else even when he is main one at fault sick of his rubbish.


22.) 05 Feb 2022 23:36:57
Think I have opened my eyes when it comes to Wilson recruitment could never see what people moaned about until today. I had suspicion when he signed Ramsay and diallo it only happened because of hagi injury otherwise we would have signed nobody but my main realisation came when I looked back at the team that beat Celtic 2-1 at parkhead katic goal . lineup was shagger Tav goldson katic barasic kamara Davis jack Kent Morelos aribo seeing how long ago that was and how we have not really added anyone to starting pool only the squad no wonder we are struggling we are stale no quality has been brought in only one I can think of is hagi rest would struggle to get in team.


23.) 05 Feb 2022 23:43:28
Wake up blue c this was well publisized at the time definitely goldson fell out with katic. I was a big Katic fan I remember hope people realise goldson is just a Merc and trouble maker he always blames others most over rated defender we've ever had can't clear set pieces from own box can't command no pace and he's a quitter as we all know and he doesn't even want to sign contract Gerrard at the time took goldsons side as he's English and we had a lot of English players also barisics form came good when him and katic played together started to dip same time Gerrard alienated him by putting his friend katic out on loan. We should have brought katic back in January if we were that desperate for a defender can't tell me souttar or Shirley better defender than katic .


24.) 06 Feb 2022 00:12:23
Blue c not really true, been many names on here before the papers. John especially has a great track record, all the long time posters on here will vouch for that.


25.) 06 Feb 2022 02:07:08
I’m surprised if these rumours are true then surely manager/ club should have had it dealt with at the time a sit down and differences aside there paid to play for club and do there best to be able to play and communicate with each other for the benefit of the team and club and for the club to have a happy balanced atmosphere

Who would want too sit ina. Dressing room full of intensity and hatred towards each other and not eating to talk to one another doesn’t seem right.


26.) 06 Feb 2022 09:14:34
Thestigno1 simply rich spoiled footballers.


27.) 06 Feb 2022 09:17:33
Blue c u r wrong. Many on here have mentioned things long b4 papers.


28.) 06 Feb 2022 10:14:35
Is Blue C coldo?


29.) 06 Feb 2022 11:59:14
Coldo lol.


30.) 06 Feb 2022 12:28:03
Shane Duffy kept Goldson out of the Brighton side, that's frightening. The guy is a baw heed and it's clear to see, never his fault even when it's obvious that it is .


31.) 06 Feb 2022 13:18:51
I wasn't being serious Blue C. It was the thumbs up, and the C in your name that made me ask, but I know you're not. Coldo would never have a go at Kent! 🤣.


32.) 06 Feb 2022 13:42:15
And I wasn’t intentionally having a go at anyone on here. Sorry if it came across that way John especially. I was more having a go at the rumour mill bull**** that only usually appears when the club is on a bit of a downer. I used to know a man called C of Ibrox. He’s not allowed to post here anymore. Been put on the naughty step 😆😆.


33.) 06 Feb 2022 14:11:54
Blue c club had won 55 when I wrote this . certainly not on a downer.


34.) 06 Feb 2022 15:16:40
Folks who cares. SG sorted it by shifting Katic out and we stopped 10. Nothing to do with Kamara and Kent being crap. Nothing to do with Goldson wanting away. Nothing to do with McGregor and Davis being fecking ancient. Nothing to do with Lundstrum, Simpson, Bacuna, Itten being crap. I know it’s forum but man. Any way women bears winning 2-0. 😁.


35.) 06 Feb 2022 15:30:16
Blue c this is a rumours page you do know that?


36.) 06 Feb 2022 19:00:41
Aw it is? Cheers for clearing that up for me. 🍩.


37.) 08 Feb 2022 22:09:37
John25 goldson falling out with barasic for not being committed to the team 😂🤣 goldson loves himself what an @rse he is total hypocrite (signed a new deal no) 🤪 goldson should 🤫 and if he keeps falling out with people you can only blame everyone else so long before you need to look at him or he needs to look at himself.


 

 

09 Jan 2022 19:33:03
I've just heard that Rangers have not made any enquiries at all regarding Souter.

Baxterboy

1.) 09 Jan 2022 20:36:50
Rangers have offered him a pre contract deal Baxterboy, except it pal!


2.) 09 Jan 2022 21:05:53
Imho I am sorry but I don’t think that he is any better than what we have got. Imho I have said previously got wages when seriously injured now jumped ship asapI would prefer the Dutch cb.


3.) 10 Jan 2022 00:05:45
He’s a good 3/ 4th choice cb for me.


4.) 10 Jan 2022 02:58:24
Souttar when injury free, is a good solid reliable centre back.


5.) 10 Jan 2022 06:02:52
He’s better than katic, Simpson for starters so it’s an upgrade imo.


6.) 10 Jan 2022 10:16:24
SirWalter, " Rangers have offered Soutter a pre contract " . Really?


7.) 10 Jan 2022 11:43:46
It's not really about being good enough . it's about being the best Scottish players for European squad.


8.) 10 Jan 2022 12:10:20
Hi troops posting on new username as forgot password for older account. Used to stay in same digs as John when we were with dundee united’s under 19 team. Now he’s on the verge of signing for team I love and I’m working 12 hour shifts in a factory lol. Hope he does sign seriously dedicated and hard working guy and some player.


 

 

07 Jan 2022 20:18:53
Morelos/ Newcastle being mentioned again. Newcastle are short upfront with a couple out injured for spell. Also Leicester looking for a striker as Vardy also out. 20 million and he can go.

Baxterboy

1.) 07 Jan 2022 20:58:02
Leicester have the Nigerian and Daka.


2.) 07 Jan 2022 21:01:09
Morelos is going nowhere near Newcastle and certainly isn’t replacing vardy at Leicester. Get the blinkers off, he’s hardly kicked a ball in 2 years, possibly only played about 10 good games in that time and still makes the same raw mistakes. Needs to get back to his fitness levels of parkhead 2 years ago to even be considered for a move down south.


3.) 07 Jan 2022 22:08:41
No way we need him for the 2nd half of the season prize is to big.


4.) 07 Jan 2022 22:25:07
Liam Gallagher, thanks for clearing that up regarding Morelos going nowhere near Newcastle or Leicester. I was getting a bit worried we may loose him. Does Morelos and Gio know he's staying or haven't you informed them yet?


5.) 07 Jan 2022 22:32:44
@baxterboy I've just been told the same thing
Only the price is £18m.


6.) 07 Jan 2022 22:35:52
Both of those I mentioned are off to African nations cup 😂😂 forgot that was on.


7.) 07 Jan 2022 22:36:31

Hod on the noo, that's 2 tims on here tonight, Liam Gallagher and Highpriest Bellshill. You guys are welcome because I realise you don't get intelligent chat on your pages. Please enjoy reading about our world famous team, you may learn something.


10.) 08 Jan 2022 00:34:31
It's a hard call if we lose him we are weaker however if we sell cash for a replacement but will have to hit the ground running. Maybe better getting a British player on loan with option to buy. Liam stop being so negative you obviously don't watch enough football to have a clue.


11.) 08 Jan 2022 08:10:50
Personally I don't see any EPL team being interested in Alfie just now, too hot and cold this season. I certainly don't think they would pay £20m for him, said it before but in terms of making the most out of Alfie financially we missed the bus on that when we rejected the Lille bid, I think we would be lucky to get between £12 and £15m if we do sell him.
John25 - Have you heard of any genuine interest in Alfie this season?


12.) 08 Jan 2022 08:53:16
Old mouldy not heard anything re Alf
He won’t be sold if our price not met.


13.) 08 Jan 2022 09:25:24
They certainly won't be interested if he comes back from columbia, with his usual extra poundage, which takes a month to sort out.


14.) 08 Jan 2022 09:54:13
Newcastle are looking at a backup player because Wilson is out for two months. As soon as he comes back he will be back into the starting eleven.
They have been linked with loan moves for a number of players including Aubameyang at Arsenal, even with his astronomical wages. I simply just don't see Morelos going there to sit on the bench. Howe has mega bucks to spend but he doesn't seem to be having a lot of luck finding super stars that want to play at Newcastle. That is no surprise for me, the club is teetering on relegation, Howe doesn't come over as a tactical genius and Newcastle isn't exactly the UK's top residential destination!
At the present time I believe that Morelos is much happier in Glasgow. We need him to tie himself to the Club on a long term contract and stay with us for many years to come.


15.) 08 Jan 2022 10:43:17
Inehacho just a squad player too eratoc and daka has only really done ok in Europe rotten any time played EPL. I could see leicster taking the gamble.


16.) 08 Jan 2022 10:44:22
Every player has their price. As for the controversial Aubameyang, who's going to take him on and his 350 grand a week wages? Morelos is the better player.


17.) 08 Jan 2022 11:15:08
Morelos is effective at what he does for us, not pretty or a natural born finisher but he’s been key to our game for a while. That said, for Baxterboy to say he’s better than Aubameyang who’s been top scorer in the EPL and Bundesliga…. I’ll take some of that crack you’re smoking mate lol.


18.) 08 Jan 2022 12:01:08
TheCoplandRoad, I'm not even biased.


19.) 08 Jan 2022 12:01:24
Daka ain’t at afcon cup as he plays same national team as sakala had a nightmare 😂.


20.) 08 Jan 2022 12:02:14
Goforbig he ain’t had a run of games in EPL so can’t judge him on the very few appearances he has made.


21.) 08 Jan 2022 13:43:33
Stormtrooper I guess so had handful of games . not like our league you really need to take your chances when playing in EPL which he has not. Although I do agree not had a good run.


22.) 08 Jan 2022 13:49:26
The buff is our most important player. His two performances against Royal Antwerp were legendary stuff. Top scorer in Europe too.


23.) 08 Jan 2022 15:42:56
Alfredo's goalscoring record for rangers since he's been here is superb for a guy who isn't a natural goalscorer TheCoplandRoad don't you think mate🤔.


24.) 08 Jan 2022 18:17:19
After that result today I don't see many players wanting to to Newcastle if they have ambition to win trophies and play at a top EPL Club. The only motivator will be money! Next season they might have the most expensive team in the English Championship!
Morelos can do a lot better than Newcastle! He would go backwards under Howe!


25.) 08 Jan 2022 21:21:45
Sir Walter Smith OBE the Buffalos stats are brilliant and he has scored some important goals. My personal opinion is that although he’s scored these goals, he’s missed as many good chances and sitters due to his relatively poor technique compared to others. Kris Boyd or similar given the chances Morelos has been provided consistently would have scored a hell of a lot more IMO.

So it seems Ramsey has played his last game for Rangers after him more or less saying his goodbyes and thanking the Rangers fans. Thank goodness as he's done absolutely nothing for the team. I know some will disagree but I trust my source that Douglas Park paid him 40 grand a week - a total waste. We should of signed a striker instead. It's not hindsight, it was my opinion when we signed him.

Baxterboy

1.) 22 May 2022 21:08:14
I was one that didn’t want him to be signed a lot of fans went way over the top with him calling him world class etc… maybe 6/ 7 years ago for a season or two but has been poor and injury for a good while unless he is in a wales top.


2.) 22 May 2022 21:18:17
Baxter I see where you’re coming from but I just find it a bit disrespectful to the guy with some folk on here, not you, saying he’s useless and a waste of space etc. he’s a top class footballer who came to Rangers to play football, certainly not for a pay day, and it just didn’t work out. Had he stayed injury free and played most games and scored the winning penalty it would be a different story. It just didn’t work out. As for strikers, in January we had Itten, roofe, Morelos and sakala. How many centre forwards did u want?


3.) 22 May 2022 21:46:00
We never broke our wage structure for goldosn but did for Ramsey that’s definitely not right.


4.) 23 May 2022 00:15:49
Tango, media talk, ramsey was a freeby, if we had wanted him he would have cost us 5 million, writting in contract.


5.) 23 May 2022 01:56:05
No we didn't Tango, Juventus covered the majority if not all his wages.


6.) 23 May 2022 08:15:20
How can u break wage structure for a freebie.


7.) 23 May 2022 12:46:04
Alloa Ger good post

Amorelos the 5 million is a condition juventus wanted including in deal, if we qualified for CL we had to sign him for that fee.
However, the deal nearly stalled that day as Wilson refused to agree to it. He stated player had to prove his fitness. The deal was eventually done late that night with Wilson getting his way.
Regarding loan fee, wages, conditions of dealthis was reported in Italy financial market as is normal to cut down on fraud, ffp rules.

25 million for glass hips Tierney. Bassey is young and fit. Why can't we get 25 million for him?

Baxterboy

1.) 22 May 2022 11:47:15
Who says we can’t Baxter, I completely agree with you, we’re talking that sort of value.


2.) 22 May 2022 12:05:46
No less than that!


3.) 22 May 2022 12:18:12
Because Celtic already had a fortune in the bank and could hold Arsenal to ransom. We're not as financially strong.


4.) 22 May 2022 12:24:09
A player is only worth what someone is willing to pay.
We can all have our thoughts but until someone is willing to offer x, y or z then it’s all speculation.


5.) 22 May 2022 12:32:42
Bassey has had half a season on form kt was winning treble after treble and playing for Scotland lol if bassey goes it will be for about 16 million.


6.) 22 May 2022 12:33:54
Just need few teams interested to bump price right up. If he keeps going the way he is, h could really have a fantastic career at the very highest level.


7.) 22 May 2022 12:57:14
Winning anything in Scotland Tango isn't held in high esteem anywhere outside of it!


8.) 22 May 2022 13:14:13
16m So we sell a younger guy that can’t get a game for 12m but only 16m for a 22yr old who got man of the match in a European final? Also re Tierney, the transfer market has boomed even more since Tierney was sold. I would start the bidding at 20m and no less. And I know you only get what someone will pay but see if they don’t want to pay that, brilliant, we’ll keep him thanks very much.


9.) 22 May 2022 13:37:33
Also in Europa team of the season! AlloaGer.


10.) 22 May 2022 14:11:30
I'll say it again, 80m for maguire should surely set the benchmark for transfer fees. Shirley is so much better than HM and he should be priced accordingly.


11.) 22 May 2022 15:26:36
Kt played well in champions league anaw mate showed his strengths against city etc.


12.) 22 May 2022 16:01:16
Personally I believe that Bassey will stay with us and will sign an extended contract at an enhanced salary. If he continues to progress as he has done so far under Gio then he will prove to be the best football player to have come out of Scotland in the modern era. We need to be keeping as many of our quality players as possible and adding a few more.
It is time for a new era and the departure of players such as McGregor, Davis, who are now in the twilight of their careers + Itten, Simpson and a few others that simply have not reached the standards required.
With the right players we have the potential under Gio to win the treble in Scotland and go a long way in Europe!


13.) 22 May 2022 17:01:36
100% agree Berkshireblue.


14.) 22 May 2022 19:21:18
Berkshire- I read that Bassey said he's in no rush to move on - and why would he? Give him a new contract, certainly worth 20 grand a week. He improves, he gains experience thus returning Rangers a large profit. Win Win.


 

 

19 May 2022 23:12:36
A wee question for you lads regarding the cup final on Saturday. A lot of the youngsters stepped up last Saturday against Hearts. We may have a lot of tiered legs from last night. Would you play any of the youngsters who performed fantastically last Saturday? If so, who would you play and who would you drop?

Baxterboy

1.) 20 May 2022 00:08:54
I’d play Lowry for sure.

McGlaughlin
Tav
Goldson
Balogun
Bassey
Davis
Lundstram
Lowry
Arfield
Kent
Roofe.


2.) 20 May 2022 00:29:07
I would bring in Lowry and diallo to the starting line up i can't see any of the others starting I think bassey will play LB With balogun coming back in at CB . McLaughlin could be in as well if Gio sticks to giving him the cup games.


3.) 20 May 2022 08:48:00
Probably lowry to start, and a couple more on the bench, if he filled the team with the youngsters and we lost, gio would get severe criticism. Blu89's team will be not far off it, I would think.


 

 

19 May 2022 19:14:05
I've read all posts regarding last nights game. I'll post my opinion. Rangers players may ask- could I off played better? Absolutely they could of and we know it. They must have regrets, Tav, Goldson, Kent were a shadow of what they can produce. Bassey- superb. If you've read my previous posts.

Baxterboy

1.) 19 May 2022 19:55:34
My post got cut short. It was regarding Ramsey. My previous posts on him basically read I thought and still think he was a very very poor and wrong signing. I said before we should of signed a striker instead. I would of saved his penalty, let's be honest it was a very poor penalty and he has let his team mates down. Yes I know we done unbelievably well to reach the final but in reality we should be winners of the European Cup.


2.) 19 May 2022 21:06:39
World class tho apparently.


3.) 19 May 2022 22:03:13
Stormtrooper you’re always right though.


4.) 19 May 2022 22:55:05
MUST BE TO EARN A MILLION A MONTH OBVIOUSLY.


5.) 19 May 2022 23:33:26
Baxterboy, he stepped up to take a penalty in the first place, where others ducked it. It was a team effort and we were not good enough on the night. Let's not single players out, just move on.


6.) 20 May 2022 14:05:21
Good point gersman. Cue the barbed comment lol.


7.) 20 May 2022 16:13:55
