Guys I’m hearing that Ramsey would be happy to stay on a pay as you play kinda contract but it seems a bit far fetched and wondering John25 have you heard anything in the grapevine of similar? Source is someone who has ties to the club and says the guy was absolutely destroyed by the UEFA result ( he’s not the only one tbf ) and wants a bit of redemption. I’m on the fence by the statement from him and I also don’t think the club would entertain.


1.) 27 May 2022 21:40:18
I don't think Rangers do those deals has there been one done before?

2.) 27 May 2022 22:18:25
No thank you. Rangers have been more than helpful with his on going injuries. He has offered nothing in return.

3.) 28 May 2022 00:02:27
Take him every day of the week, still a quality player there who has a lot of experience and would be great about the club for our young players. Think he would be brilliant for young Lowry especially.

4.) 28 May 2022 00:45:35
Ramsey, I really wanted it to work but it just hasn't panned out. He has undoubted talent and experience but for me didn't do enough to prove he is worthy of playing for us. He's too unreliable in terms of injuries. I think he's a good player but for me, money best spent elsewhere.

5.) 28 May 2022 06:00:45
It was in the paper about that deal. still. No thanks. 2 decent games v dundee doesn't get you a deal.

6.) 28 May 2022 06:46:19
Didn’t work out it time to move on.

7.) 28 May 2022 06:54:27
Maybe one of the Eds can explain the pay as you play deals? I'm assuming the players have to get paid legally - so they just get a lower base wage and then a hefty bonus for making an appearance? I'm sure I read previously that a long of contracts are incentive based. so probably not all that different. In fact, did Frank De Boer not do something similar?

Maybe with a preseason behind him and a sensible workload plan, he could stay fit and really add value.

{Ed001's Note - yes mate, they can't legally be truly pay as you play, but just a much lowered basic salary with a massive appearance bonus.}

8.) 28 May 2022 06:58:43
Talent not in question regarding Aaron Ramsey, his injuries are .

9.) 28 May 2022 07:24:26
Wrote this four weeks ago. Shot down.
Would take him in a minute.

10.) 28 May 2022 08:14:58
Thanks Ed! Much appreciated.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome.}

11.) 28 May 2022 08:55:06
Ramsey is to much of a risk to the squad / rangers
Already? Marks over :
Big Phil
Hagi - (potentially hope he’s ok )

Adding Ramsey is mismanagement imo you could have half the team out on the treatment table by Nov .

12.) 28 may 2022 11:13:07
i said same thing, be crazy not to take a player of that quality on a very low risk deal, absolutely a no brainier imo.

13.) 28 May 2022 11:26:17
So would I John. In a heartbeat.

14.) 28 May 2022 11:36:37
Well worth a punt on a low basic wage. If he recaptured his match fitness, he would be amazing. Even without it, as mentioned by AC21, he'd be a superb influence on our youngsters.

15.) 28 May 2022 11:38:57
I think we should move on as Ramsey is injury prone and a large financial outlay for the club.
Lowry is certainly more than capable of playing in the first team on a regular basis.

16.) 28 May 2022 12:56:20
I also would take Ramsey on a pay as u play, if Scotland beat the Ukrainian’s let’s see how he plays against us for Wales.

17.) 28 May 2022 13:11:53
If we can get him risk free financially then it’s not a tough decision! Yes please.

18.) 28 May 2022 16:27:28
Belblue Flanagan 5k basic 5k if in match squad.



23 Oct 2021 19:59:58
John25 I’m hearing from a family member down in London that Jake Cooper is close to agreeing terms! Do you think there is anything in this that’s concrete my friend as I know this was one you mentioned?


1.) 23 Oct 2021 21:16:10
Jake Cooper has been on the cards for a wee while, what's your opinion on him and how much would he cost?

2.) 23 Oct 2021 21:38:21
I’m told very realistic option, especially as deal for Harry Souter looks beyond us.

3.) 24 Oct 2021 07:17:34
As a small matter of interest John25🤔If rangers had the chance/ choice to sign either jake cooper or harry souttar, which one would you prefer we signed mate🤔.

4.) 24 Oct 2021 07:32:28
Souter. But now valued at 15 million so not happening.
Although the two of them and doehki would be some back 3.

5.) 24 Oct 2021 07:57:22
Only my opinion John25 and watched jake cooper and harry souttar and absolutely nothing between them going on what i've seen of both centre hslfs mate🤔.

6.) 24 Oct 2021 08:09:11
I honestly don't think gerrard would sign both jake cooper and harry souttar even if he could anyway🤔
Both similar styled centre halfs from what i've seen like the style of big helander who's superb in my eyes👌Cooper is a leftie right enough, same as helander and as we know left footed centre halfs, are much harder to come by🤔The reason i think gerrard wouldn't sign both even if he could, is because gerrard likes the foil of a rugged, no nonsense, old fashioned centre half,
beside a ball playing football centre half🤔.

7.) 24 Oct 2021 08:32:56
Souttar over Cooper aw day long but he is well
Out of our price range now unfortunately.

8.) 24 Oct 2021 09:38:59
SGL in a back three doehki always plays right
Souter in the middle and Cooper on the left.

9.) 24 Oct 2021 11:28:49
Big Cooper can play as well, scores a right few goals as well.

10.) 25 Oct 2021 17:37:09
If we sign any of the names mentioned I hope it’s Doehki. Looks a player and one we can sell on for a profit.

11.) 25 Oct 2021 18:50:06
SGL, 17 million between them, Souter now getting quoted at 20 million and Cooper 3 million.



28 Sep 2019 19:21:41
I don’t have Facebook but got a call on the road back from the game from a mate who said Defoe has been in a car accident can anyone confirm?


1.) 28 Sep 2019 19:52:50
He’s ok. 👍🏻.



25 Jul 2016 21:41:15
Well tonight's game Barton strolled through it no end, Kranc just looks like he floats on air but my main positive is how good Rossiter looked in the 30mins he got! He put a tackle in and I know the opposition wasn't the best but he showed great urgency and he knows how to play a pass and also the most important thing he plays the right pass! Can't wait to see this lad get a full 90mins I think this boy is a steal at £250k.


1.) 25 Jul 2016 21:51:31
Wilson/ Keirnan looked as comfortable as ever with Barton in front.

Our Joey strolled it tonight. He'll stroll most games up here but his quality is there for everyone to see.

Can't wait for Hamilton.

2.) 25 Jul 2016 22:01:57
Guys really think we need to get a grip on reality. We had over 20 shots on goal and only scored 3, 1 of them a penalty. Barton was not impressive for me, he plays more sideways passes than Barry Ferguson did, . McKay? Why does he put the brakes on when he goes past even poor defenders. For me a lot of huffing and puffing to no great effect against a very poor team member
Let's hope it gets better soon?

3.) 25 Jul 2016 22:47:12
I don't want a grip on whatever reality your on bil72! The guys above are right Barton added a lot of protection to the cb's which was previously missing, rossiter likewise! Mckay wasn't as good as previous couple of games but forester more than made up for that with his energetic clever play, tavs delivery into the box was also very good.

A lot of positives to be taken even if it was against weaker opposition! We still have to go out and break these teams down.

4.) 25 Jul 2016 22:53:27

Can only beat what's in front of you! Barton and kranjkaer didn't need to come out first gear and still strolled it. I thought Barton was mom to be honest, hate guys like you, no matter what happens you'll never be happy.

5.) 25 Jul 2016 22:57:51
Bloody hell! I thought the team played well tonight and hardly had to get out of first gear. Remember most of these guys are finding their feet. As the old saying goes - you can please some of the people etc etc. But yes the lad Rossiter looks a steal. We are looking good, dare I say it!

6.) 25 Jul 2016 23:03:37
I thought Barry McKay bossed the whole game till he was taken of Fun!

7.) 25 Jul 2016 23:33:57
I was at game and thought Barton was a bit off the pace too, Mckay is great to watch and hope he goes from strenth to strenth. Stranraer are very average and the test will be when the league starts, lots of chances and ahould have had more goals but that'll come as game go on. Barton will be better as games go on too but all in all decent win! Moan the gers.

8.) 25 Jul 2016 23:46:29
Jordan Rossiter is going to be some player - I did mention him a few days ago and tinight he showed a maturity beyond his years - You can see the style of Gerrard in his play and movement - Superb signing -.

9.) 26 Jul 2016 00:47:58
Pierre, you must not have been at same game I was as Barton strolled it! In first gear I may add. Broke up play when needed, kept it simple but moving, won his tackles etc he was our best player with kranjkaer I thought, but ofcourse entitled to opinions.

10.) 26 Jul 2016 01:13:13
Didn't think Barton looked match fit and a few loose passes but his class is obvious. Thought mckay was superb. Niko oozes class too. Rossiter just slotted in to Bartons position like a glove.

11.) 26 Jul 2016 05:31:56
At the game last night and thought joey barton's passing range was very good, can't agree with a couple of the above posters that didn't think barton was good last night, although still not 100% match fit he oozed class and cruised the game and our defence looked a helluva lot tighter with his presence, kranjcar looked good in phases although a wee bit to go in fitness also, barrie mckay superb, but I've always been raving about him and I'm a big fan of his.

12.) 26 Jul 2016 08:08:50
People still need to remember that this is still really pre season. A silly competition format that has stopped us playing harder competition. The team has only conceded 1 goal. And I think in total there has been 10 shots in at our goal so it says that something has improved. Keep calm bears.

13.) 26 Jul 2016 11:11:12
Thorn76, i also thought wilson had a good game, he seems good when he has experienced players round about him, but he needs to stand on hiis own two feet, as he won't always have such comfort blankets around him, imo, he is old enough to play a good game, that's why he is vunrable.

14.) 26 Jul 2016 12:55:32
got to say for me McKay should have got man of the match but niko a close second the guys class oozed out over the pitch!

for me to say barton covered our defence well is a joke as we didn't have any defending to do.

rossiter for me would have been man of the match if he had played 90 boy reminds me of a young barry ferguson which despite what bil72 (the pessimist) says barry was a great player for rangers and if rossiter has a rangers carrer like him i'd be over the moon.

15.) 26 Jul 2016 15:49:29
Thought Barton looked overweight last night though still fit enough to stroll through a game like that. Rossiter reminds me more of Roy Keane than Stevie G. Kranjcar when fully fit will be the best of all the new boys. Think the League Cup has been good for us, for the fact that instead of meaningless friendlies, these small clubs have been competitive without ever threatening us. Its let us get our match fitness up to speed.

Just back home from being over a week away from my own bed and what a week it’s been. From being absolutely gutted in Seville to driving up today from Bristol right into the game absolutely minging with the same clothes on to celebrate another extra time win. Guys we fell slightly short on Wednesday, we came close but to a man this season ( and bare in mind we’ve had a longer season than most ) we end up with a piece of silverware. This great club……no wait our great club have yet again showed we are the best supported team on this great earth. Wednesday night was a great occasion and if every Ger is truthful we shouldn’t really have been there on paper but we were. We can all raise our heads aloft and sit back on this season with pride. Uefa finalists and Scottish cup winners as I for one would have grabbed that both hands at the start of the season.


1.) 21 May 2022 19:31:40
Well said pal just back in time myself. Everything went against us in seville but we still managed to take them to penalties. Really proud and happy tonight some team we all are well done everyone.

Total cost of Rangers starting line up last night and look at the cost of teams that we’ve dispatched on this great run. This sort of puts it into perspective what a bond we have in this Rangers family.

Listened to Kenny Miller on the phone in and he hit the nail on the head when he said this is a special group of players that have an amazing bond with us supporters. Sitting in my seat last night long long before the game started with only a few thousand if that in the ground I could feel the electricity already. On the final whistle I broke down in tears and it actually sunk in what I’d just witnessed.

Never before in over 40 years of following the Bears through thick n thin have I seen and/ or been part of and atmosphere like I was involved in last night. Flights booked to Faro and hotel already booked with a few extra days in the sun to enjoy us picking up that special trophy 50years on since we last picked it up💙💙.

We've never won the old uefa cup which is now the europa league trophy Blackwoodbear, it was the european cup winners cup we won mate 👍🇬🇧.

2.) 06 May 2022 20:12:13
Same difference it’s a euro cup me friend but I’ll let you pick holes pal 👍.

3.) 06 May 2022 21:15:44
Its unbelievable what we have achieved given our budget blackwood bear. I remember SG said after our exit to Malmo in the Champions league that our exit was a result of not spending and in order to compete we would have to spend millions. Gio has blown that misconception right out the water. Can't wait to see how Hagi improves under Gio given how well Lundstram and Morelos are now doing. It still hasn't sunk in what we have achieved.



03 May 2022 22:55:24
Just back in the country from afar to the news that a true Ranger has sadly passed. Now we all think of Rangers legends players/ managers but a true legend means someone who has stuck by our great institution through thick and thin and you Jimmy are that. I’ll be in my seat on Thursday and I for one will not stop singing or won’t stop driving our great club on. This year, our year of 150 great years we have two reasons to make this euro final and that is for one of our greatest managers in Walter and one if not the best true gents Jimmy Bell. We as a club are second to none when it comes to our own and fellow Bears these two absolute gents were most certainly our own. Let’s all give the Rangers roar for another 90 mins and see our boys hit Seville and when we get there I’m sure we will be in better shape and form than Manchester 2008 💙.


1.) 04 May 2022 00:55:24

The lads can go out there tomorrow night and get to the final for Jimmy Bell.

6.) 04 May 2022 08:53:18
No doubt this is doable the morra night with our full stadium roaring our team on 👍🇬🇧.

7.) 04 May 2022 09:54:30
100% doable, nobody is doubting this is a hard game but we’re more than capable of getting the result.



24 Feb 2022 22:18:10
VAR in Scotland I’m all for it but fml don’t let anyone near it who was viewing it tonight! Absolutely robbed of a third goal that would’ve put us 3-2 ahead and also a cheeky wee £600 to me for a fiver if Kent had scored 💙.

My daughter was in Tenerife over New Years and were in the Ibrox Bar with Lewis and he didn’t want to be in any pics or videos …. just yet was his words! I hear a lot on here saying he’s not good enough but did we say the same about Glen when signing him from the Dee? Maybe around better players and coaches there must just be a player in there IMO.

John25 I’m unsure of the total politics from this case but my daughters best friend is GF ( or seeing each other as the young people call it these days ) and it came from her. The lad has been in my house numerous times and is bursting to get a first team opportunity.

Alegria can’t play for the first team for six months since arriving at Rangers. The lad is also desperate to make the step up to first team. He asked to go out on loan and wanted to go to Accies but was told no.

Unbeliever why would he become a hate figure? The guy has played nearly every game for us since he joined! We have certainly benefited more from picking up free agents recently than what we have lost with players leaving on a Bosman. It’s swings n roundabouts I’m afraid which has worked very well in our favour in recent years.

Trueblue I thought Soutter today was the best player on the park other than Bassey tbf! I think there is definitely a player there if we can keep him fit as his positional sense is an asset if kept fit. Let’s put it this way on Wednesday would you have had a CH that was a yard or so closer to goal than what big Connor was? As I think Soutter may just maybe read position better as shown today.
