In talks with Milan for Clinton Nsiala.

Young Italian CB.


1.) 05 Jun 2024 23:15:13
He not french?

2.) 05 Jun 2024 23:22:05
Posted that earlier CF5, so are we definitely in for him bud?

3.) 05 Jun 2024 23:26:53
Also CF5 anything on Alzate in the pipeline, cheers?.

4.) 06 Jun 2024 00:58:51
More fuel for the fire on this one. Nsiala's agent is following Rangers on Insta.

5.) 06 Jun 2024 05:31:39
Interesting. Contract expires at the end of this month.

Souttar. New LCB
Goldson. Nsiala
Balogun. Balogun

Balogun comfortably covers both sides

King loaned out. Davies will be available but will be difficult to sell as he’s on a high wage. RCB won’t be signed unless Goldson is to leave, whether it’s to Saudi or English Championship, I think he will.

For the people who will jump on this, we can’t sign a first choice RCB then have Goldson on the bench on over 30k a week. He will leave first, so I guess it’s a little patience for now.

6.) 06 Jun 2024 06:50:37
Defo operating on a 1 out 1 in policy i think unless its cheapos.

7.) 06 Jun 2024 08:39:39
It certainly appear that way big dado,
i for one ain't going to get over excited for the transfer window this summer that way i can't be disappointed like previous years
PC has got a hell of a job to drastically improve this squad to be "REAL" Title Contender and with this I mean being able to turnover Timothy home and away on very little cash, it's going to take a few windows IMO to get that team on what will be very little budget (i would imagine) unless we sell our prize assets
Remember the persons from the east will strengthen also

i will keep the faith though as i have faith in PC to turn this messa around if he is suitability backed my issue is i just don't know if we can do this.

8.) 06 Jun 2024 09:48:43
My only concern over the CB's we are being linked with - Nsiala, Galdames - none of these guys are really over 6ft.
Think we need a bit of size in there.

9.) 06 Jun 2024 10:43:38
Nsiala actually looks pretty big well built.

10.) 06 Jun 2024 10:48:25
Also just noticed Bear also posted on the 4th.



28 May 2024 11:26:43
Cordoba due In middle to end of this week. Mokofeng due in next week.

Interested in Lennon Miller but probably be out of our price range, PL clubs also interested in him. Barron still has an offer on the table from us but also has interest from elsewhere.


1.) 28 May 2024 12:22:57
Nothing at all on adam traore CoplandFront5 ? or a striker mate ?.

2.) 28 May 2024 12:28:21
Thanks for the info CoplandFront appreciated ?.

3.) 28 May 2024 12:33:53
Think we should be making sure Miller is within our price range - would be another Ferguson where we regret it a few years down the line.

4.) 28 May 2024 12:37:49
I’d love to sign Lennon Miller! He reminds me of a young Steve Davis. Could be the midfielder we need. Barron, I’d still love to sign too. Promising that we are after Scottish talent. Both players are very good with more growth to come.

5.) 28 May 2024 12:49:05
Where is Momofeng currently playing and. What position does he play?

6.) 28 May 2024 13:03:36
Would love us to sign young lennon Miller.
At his age though he knows not a chance he'd start for us so will probably go elsewhere.

7.) 28 May 2024 13:15:53
Spent £4m on diomande so why won’t we spend what is asked for miller
Usual snobbery towards Scottish talent.

8.) 28 May 2024 13:32:35
Charlie winger from south africa.

9.) 28 May 2024 13:51:47
Agree stevie 4m will not get him next season.

10.) 28 May 2024 14:09:06
It’s not snobbery. there’s a budget, why spend £4-5m when there’s more pressing concerns.

We spent £4.5m on a CM already, Motherwell want around that amount also. To be spending that on a 17/18 year old is utter madness when we need to prioritise what positions we sign this summer.

11.) 28 May 2024 14:17:42
I don’t think it’s snobbery, it’s all to do with our budget and how much we can risk on a 17-year-old. He looks really good but a lot can change over the next few years and in reality he’d need to play every week in order to continue to develop. Rice can’t even get on the bench just now and like it or not Diomande will be the first midfielder on the team sheet next season.

12.) 28 May 2024 14:19:05
Walter, as I said nothing from who I knew but I believe it to be true due to last Wasserman dealings.

We’re wanting 2 strikers in, no names but Clement knows that’s a weak area.

13.) 28 May 2024 14:20:43
Surely this is where we can be a bit smarter (re lennon) and use the likes of Mccrorie, King, Devine etc as makeweights in the deal. Miller is one that will go on to be a star so if we really want him now is the time to do it before he's out of our price range. Barron I'd like but believe he's turned us down.

14.) 28 May 2024 15:22:04
Stevie u really don’t get it,

15.) 28 May 2024 15:28:31
Any news or ideas on a creative attacking midfielder? Don't think we can into next season with either Dowell or Cantwell or Lawrence as first choice.

16.) 28 May 2024 16:52:07
Cp5, are you hearing anything about players being sold?

17.) 28 May 2024 16:57:36
Copland significant interest Rrahmani.

18.) 28 May 2024 16:58:37
Sorry Copland, I wasn’t copying you think we must just think pragmatically about these things and our posts crossed over. Steven really likes to push this snobbishly agenda, I don’t get where it comes from.

19.) 28 May 2024 17:24:13
Stevie what a load of bs it’s not snobbery at all that’s getting throwing about on here like confetti these days. Every one posted on here saying they want him so please explain the snobbery.

20.) 28 May 2024 17:25:35
Cheers for info CF5.

21.) 28 May 2024 18:16:51
John my source says no interest in him. Wouldn’t mind him though mate.

22.) 28 May 2024 18:20:18
At end of day our club have a budget, within that we have to manage who we buy, as good as Lennon miller may become do we spend millions bin McKinnon and rice and nsio in the process.

Not for me. , I still believe Watson has a bigger future in the game and can play different positions.

23.) 28 May 2024 19:31:18
Cheers Copland, I’m told minor interest but not in top three we r looking at.

24.) 28 May 2024 21:42:26
I think the snobbery comment comes from the Lewis Ferguson not Rangers class problem. I do think foreign players have a much lower threshold when it comes to taking a punt. We could have got Ferguson for peanuts when he was at Hamilton and he'd be captain by now or sold for a big profit.

25.) 28 May 2024 21:48:10
Lennon Miller atm is not worth more than £2m he might have potential and has had a good half of season with other half spent being injured. Far too big a gamble to spend £4m on a young player who so far has been injured for half of the only season he’s played.

He could be injury prone, and Lewis Ferguson had already played in top flight for about 5 seasons before he left to go to Italy this is not a similar scenario. He may prove to be a great player in future but not at £4m plus for me.

Conner Barron has shown similar levels of ability and would cost £500k development fee that’s who should be signed and Shankland for £2m now he has 12 months left.

26.) 28 May 2024 23:31:38
John it's either significant interest or minor interest can't be bothered.



19 May 2024 12:32:58
No truth in Rrahmani, or any squad unrest or any takeover. We hear the takeover news every single year, it'll never happen.

Young South African will be coming in at just over £1m.

Barron still has an offer from us but has others from England and Italy.


1.) 19 May 2024 12:48:57
Always appreciated Copland.

2.) 19 May 2024 12:53:38
Why we paying a million for someone who is rated at like 400k.

3.) 19 May 2024 12:58:29
The way the season has ended has put everyone into frenzy some stating take overs and mental investment out of hope, next season we need freshness and quality and big wages taken off the wage bill.

4.) 19 May 2024 12:59:08
Unless John is correct about possible announcements after the cup final, I tend to take all of this speculation with a huge pinch of salt.
Already we've had, investment, takeover, at least a dozen names all priced way above our ability to spend and with interest from other countries, and I'm sure there are more to come, especially this week in lead up to the cup final.

5.) 19 May 2024 13:06:34
Andy probably because many other clubs where interested in him.

6.) 19 May 2024 13:08:37
Thanks for the info.
Barron is definitely worth a punt, young and Scottish and potential to be a great signing.

7.) 19 May 2024 13:10:38
A website rates him at 400k, that doesn't mean that's what his value is in real life. It's not football manager.

8.) 19 May 2024 13:13:54
Cp5, thanks for the update. keep us informed over the coming months.

9.) 19 May 2024 13:35:52
Transfermarkt rate him at 400k. That same website rate Butland as 3m, Goldson 6m, Tav 7m. Could go on and on regarding there valuations.

In reality it means nothing.

10.) 19 May 2024 13:46:50
And is the boy not son a short term deal sure I read somewhere he only signed a two year deal?

Unless I’m getting him mixed up with another target ?.

11.) 19 May 2024 13:54:45
As usual thanks for sharing your info with us CoplandFront5, very much appreciated ? Is there anything on who we'll possibly sign for our striker's position CoplandFront5 ?Is there anything at all on the resurfacing stories of miovski or shankland mate ?.

12.) 19 May 2024 14:04:33
Although i’ve not seen him play (just waiting on the usual folk saying they’ve followed African football religiously for the last 20 year ?) there were some big clubs looking at him. Hoping he can hit the ground running as we need that to be honest.

13.) 19 May 2024 14:14:48
CoplandFront5, what's your opinion on our manager Philippe Clement and giving him a decent amount of money to rebuild us because as you will know mate if we give him a good bit of dough to spend, our board have to be very confident he's the correct candidate to spend it because we just can't continue with the wrong manager buying players and after a year the next manager left with players he doesn't want and that's now happened since Gerrard left. ?

Copland, do you think that if clement were not to do the business, that Derek McInnes, who knows the domestic scene very well, would be very much in the frame to become our manager because let's face we've tried everything else, mate. ?

The more bears I'm talking to nowadays about how fed up we all are with this constant finishing 2nd to them in the league every year, are mentioning Derek McInnes' name ?.

14.) 19 May 2024 14:16:22
Copeland any rumours about any new strikers coming in?

15.) 19 May 2024 14:32:29
Walter mcinness would be a antastic appointment if e want te remain second best.

16.) 19 May 2024 15:08:06
Clements the right man Walter, he’s said this squad is at the end of its cycle. Give him a proper budget that allows him to do exactly what he said is needed. A major change.

As for McInnes, definitely not. Thankfully I don’t think this current Rangers board would ever stoop that low.

17.) 19 May 2024 15:50:08
This boy will be class. Been a huge fan of African football for about 20 years now.

18.) 19 May 2024 15:51:15
Good manager who gets the best out of players, has also sourced many decent players on smaller budgets too.

19.) 19 May 2024 15:52:56
Copland agree, morals of an alley cat, makes Billy Davis look like a saint.

20.) 19 May 2024 15:53:12
Any truth in puerta Copland mate?

21.) 19 May 2024 16:19:19
The same Derek McInnes who knocked us back previously? No thanks. We're trying to rebuild to get back to the top and stay there and the Kilmarnock manager is the guy. Jesus man.

22.) 19 May 2024 16:55:30
What is it with our fans at times, constant finishing second all the time and want another manager. McInnes was sacked by Aberdeen and has done okay at Killie but why would he be mentioned as a man to take over when we have a perfectly good manager in charge!

It's the players and only the players to blame, way too many serial wage earner and happy to accept second. Let's give our manager the backing he deserves and see where he takes us. Celtic are not miles ahead of us and if Branda stays in charge I can only see them regressing.

23.) 19 May 2024 16:58:34
CoplandFront5,i would be very interested to hear your opinion on tav and if he'll stay or go mate ? Also on todd cantwell if you reckon he'll stay or go, as there does seem to be some friction at times, between cantwell and clement ?For the record, hand on heart, i think both tav and cantwell will remain rangers players going into next season ?.

24.) 19 May 2024 17:17:08
Happy with Cantwell sws not Tavernier.

25.) 19 May 2024 17:21:56
Well played Todd the Prod ??.

26.) 19 May 2024 17:43:04
SWS - I agree, that unfortunately Tav and Goldson will still be here next season - if that happens, we're finishing 2nd again.

27.) 19 May 2024 17:45:54
"Usual folk"! I see what you done there Dado, and I like it. ??.

28.) 19 May 2024 17:50:47
McInnes ?? that’s nearly as bad as Billy Davies back in the day.

29.) 19 May 2024 17:55:48
Tav will stay we need Experience if we let a lot of the others go, however the guy needs rotated last 3 seasons you see his fall off towards the end of the season and imo its just down to our over reliance of him.

We really need to start managing him abit better.

30.) 19 May 2024 17:58:49
Correct me if I'm wrong, Coops (I'm not), but did you not run McInness down at every turn, and sarcastically refer to him as "Del boy"? I'm sure, nae, positive, you did! Why the change in attitude?

31.) 19 May 2024 18:00:27
Both can go.

32.) 19 May 2024 18:28:48
Have you heard anything about what’s happening with tav and Goldson Copland. These guys have done a job but we are late on moving them on.

33.) 19 May 2024 18:35:12
We can start by "managing" him out the door Aero! Tav is done, and if he's here next season, and still our captain, then PC will be done, as will our chances for the league.

34.) 19 May 2024 19:07:41
Yes raisetheroofe your correct regarding me saying mcinnes wasn't good enough to be rangers manager and i'm not saying he is mate ? Its me posting what a lot of talk is now going on amongst some of our supporters and why mate ? Don't pay attention to what strom posts as he can't understand or digest a post properly and i get my laugh at him honestly ?? Raisetheroofe, i've actually heard this talk about mcinnes from supporters who sit around me, in the copland road mate ? Not for me as like i've clearly stated, i back clement ?.

35.) 19 May 2024 19:09:34
Defo RTR. he's 33 in october. Celtic has the sense to get rid of Lustig at similar age becaude they knew he was done.

36.) 19 May 2024 19:09:42
Todd Cantwell can undoubtedly be our Phil Foden ?.

37.) 19 May 2024 19:15:32
Roofe. Take Tav out the team who is now our primary creator? Cantwell? he's proved this season that he isn't capable of being our main creator.

i really couldn't care if tav leaves but the issue will always be who replaces his creativity.

38.) 19 May 2024 19:44:28
John people say we are stupid for overlooking Ferguson and shankland can the same not be said for managers?

He made Aberdeen solid and difficult to beat and kinda done similar job at Kilmarnock maybe could be better with better budget who knows hopefully we will never find out.

39.) 19 May 2024 19:57:43
Million for someone rated £400k on football manager ??? get a grip.

40.) 19 May 2024 20:36:29
Walter go and have a lie down bud, think you've got sunstroke, Cantwell = of Foden mmm. Tav stays we be fecked, sorry mate he's past his sell by date.

41.) 19 May 2024 20:39:46
Aerondon its time to move on mate its been 9 years with little success. This is where recruitment needs to be good. Sign proper wingers and tavs goal/ assist return can be spread easily. And a new pen taker assigned. We will certainly be stronger defensively without him.

42.) 19 May 2024 21:08:18
Aerondon - simple answer to your who creates question, we sign a pair of wingers and a number 10 who create and score goals which means we no longer rely on our right back to do so, which in turn means we can sign a right back who knows how to defend or better yet play Sterling there.

43.) 19 May 2024 21:36:33
Gofor he made Aberdeen hard to beat? Jeezo man the rotten mob were good for 5 goals every time they played them.

44.) 19 May 2024 22:01:21
Im all for moving on but you won't find a winger who creates same chances as Tav that's the truth, Jota for them couldn't even create as much as tav does for us. We'd seriously need to Find a creative no. 10 or 8.

i like Cantwell but he's not the creator type.

45.) 20 May 2024 02:53:45
we already have a midfeild creator his name is Ianis Hagi, a pLayer Clement has came close to managing twice, but has been moved out the squads Clement took over as manager twice before he got the chance, if anyone can get the best out of Ianis it is definately Clement,
Hagi is still contracted to rangers until 2026 thanks to beale extending his contract, once Cantwell see's Hagi quality, that will surely push him to produce hi best, (we all know what Cantwell is capable of when he was destroying the best defences in the EPL Chelsea, Man city, Arsenal, Man U, he made them all look like league 1 defences and scored insane goals against them, in a bang average team)
the lad is 100% fit again and has played close to 25 full games club / international since Beale loaned him out to the Spanish premier league.
Sterling is the perfect replacement for Tav, will he score as many goals NO, but he has something tav does not the ability to defend and he has more pace than Tav him and Sima will be a handful on the right, just as Yilmaz and Cortes will be on the left.
The club might as well sell all the older players we have that are quite simply not good enough anymore, Tav has been rubbish the latter quarter of this season, along with Goldson, Souttar, Davies. Balogun has been our best CB and he is away on a free in a few weeks, likely to retire at 35.
We need fresh blood, that is young, Fast and skilled, trundling on with the same older core in our team we will be in the same position this time next season, it's time for BIG changes, and if we get the clearout right and hang to younger lads aged 18 to 26 then the rebuild is not as big as it looks, it's the clearout that will trake most work,
Tha ius Koppens job not Clements, his job is to make what Koppen brings in work in our team, Clement has no say in what players we buy. The DOF makes those decisions.

46.) 20 May 2024 07:25:21
Hagi is not good enough. Another player that gets made out to be something he's not, the longer he's not playing for Rangers. If he's a good as you say he is, he wouldn't have been a bit part player for Alaves this season.

47.) 20 May 2024 08:46:24
Hagi! He's single fish, and one of the most overrated players we have ever had. Honestly, if we were to pin our hopes on him, then God help us. Are you his dad, LAUDRUPHAGI?

Also, Cantwell! "Destroying" the best defences in EPL! When? A slight exaggeration. Too much sun over the weekend?

48.) 20 May 2024 08:58:56
I agree, Hagi isn't the answer. but he's been better for us than Cantwell. Their comparable first season numbers show this. I actually nearly shat myself laughing when I saw Cantwell compared to Foden above. He's more like our Yan Dhanda than our Phil Foden!

If Tav is still here next season, and still the captain, Clement won't see out the season IMO. He's never been great defensively and you need a good defence to win titles. The best defence generally does (including our 55 year) . He's been worse than he's ever been defensively this season though, what legs he had to recover his defensive inability have clearly gone. I was though enthused by PC's comments re: end of a cycle and making sure people go out on a high. I think he knows this too. IF he doesn't we're in trouble.

Tav has been a great servant to the club. I would never accuse him of not giving his all or his loyalty. He'll certainly go with my best wishes. But, at the same time, I think it's fair to say he's considered by many to be a better right back than I've ever thought he was. I may be old fashioned, but I don't want my right back to be top scorer, I want my right back to stop the other team scoring and he's never been great at that.

49.) 20 May 2024 15:26:40
Sorry capt tav

Am I not right in saying that Mcinnis delivered cup Aberdeen were looking for for years

And remind me did he no Finnish ahead of rangers for some of those season

Geezo eh short memory eh

My point was never say never not that I wanted him and if you read my full post you maybe would have seen the bit that said hopefully we never find out.

50.) 20 May 2024 16:31:50
Cantwell and hagi are very similar in that it’s hard to pin down a position for them and they like to drift around.

51.) 20 May 2024 23:35:08
Cantwell destroying prem defences? just fyi he created 1 chance in 45 games in the prem. Cantwell is a good player for SPFL but there's a reason he never played as a no.10 and why he was shifted out to LM/ LW.

52.) 21 May 2024 22:23:17
If we were in for him our chances of getting him are slim and Nil especially with them appointing Popcorn teeth.



29 Apr 2024 23:10:22
Butland offered a new contract.

Club also wanting to get Cortes and Sima signed up although Sima is dependent on the fee Brighton want obviously.

Lawrence, Davies, Dowell, all free to leave in the summer, most likely back down south although Davies will be hard to shift as he was last two transfer windows.


1.) 30 Apr 2024 04:25:25
Good moves, moving on the injury prone and sub par standard players will be difficult given the wages we have them on unfortunately.

2.) 30 Apr 2024 04:53:39
Nice to hear from you again CoplandFront5 ?Do you think tav will be sold mate ? Again many thanks for sharing your info with us all on here mate ?Any names regarding a striker we'll be trying to sign for next season ?.

3.) 30 Apr 2024 06:12:12
I like Sima but he is another with a history of injuries, Cortes looked good but maybe too many games too soon after not playing much done him in, again does him pulling up with a hamstring mean he's going to go down the Yilmaz route of looking good when he plays but being out too often. This season has shown that we need robust reliable players.

4.) 30 Apr 2024 07:20:36
Good info Copland re three names leaving you getting anything on canwell

im told the three tou mention with others know the plan for them.

5.) 30 Apr 2024 07:29:25
Cortes if he stays injury free a no brainer it was killies pitch that got him the injury

Hopefully we can get sima for a reasonable price.

6.) 30 Apr 2024 07:54:02
Good to hear from you Copland, I had honestly suspected you might have been one of Beales burner accounts with your info ??.

7.) 30 Apr 2024 08:09:31
Could their injuries this season result in lower fees?

8.) 30 Apr 2024 08:45:30
Anything we get for Lawrence and Dowell could split the difference of what we don't get for Davies and just cut our losses to get 3 high earners off the wage bill and replace them with hungry younger players looking to make their name in Europe. Genuinely excited to see what Koppen pulls out the bag, he'll know himself he can only get to a bigger club himself if he excels here.

9.) 30 Apr 2024 08:49:31
Weve expected a few to leave the last 2 or 3 windows, and they are still here.
Wouldnt be surprised if we have half the long list of names mentioned here previously STILL here by August.

10.) 30 Apr 2024 09:09:19
CP5, great info. we need one hell of a clear out, starting with the defence.

11.) 30 apr 2024 11:44:28
hi cf5, have players been told they can go while they’re involved in the title fight just now? , i find that strange, but i like the info, cantwell too often runs into people or falls down and i can see him away too dowel never made it, jack roofe done, surely a decent ch is upmost in they’re minds.

12.) 30 Apr 2024 12:02:14
CF5- you would expect Wright and Jack to be added to that list.
Another massive revamp of our squad this summer.
Good to see you posting mate?.

13.) 30 Apr 2024 12:36:45
Tom i totally agree, it would be very silly telling players they won't be Rangers players next season actually pure madness.

14.) 30 Apr 2024 13:54:07
If we sign sima and Cortes I’d be happy although I’d still like another winger signed I really can’t go another season where we are relying on matondo etc.
New Rw/ mcausland
Cortes/ sima

I’d be happy with that.



25 Jan 2024 14:01:34
Diomande to be announced tonight. Had his RTV stuff done today. Plan was for it to be confirmed on Monday but travel issues held it up.

Another 2 to come in after him if all goes to plan.


1.) 25 Jan 2024 15:59:39
Great stuff Copland exactly what I’m hearing
U getting anything on Manhoef.

2.) 25 Jan 2024 16:04:09
Copelandfront5, any news of players leaving? that would be 4 players signed this window, I'd have thought we would have needed to trim the size of the squad.

3.) 25 Jan 2024 16:04:36
That’s brilliant news Copland any chance you know the positions that are getting brought in.

4.) 25 Jan 2024 16:09:00
Nice one.

5.) 25 Jan 2024 16:09:31
Thank god I was getting worried.

6.) 25 Jan 2024 16:09:56
Anything about outgoings CF5?

7.) 25 Jan 2024 16:12:13
Thanks for the info, any idea who the other 2 are or what position?

8.) 25 Jan 2024 16:12:35
Nice one CF5, thanks for the info as always.

9.) 25 Jan 2024 16:20:27
4 signed this window?

10.) 25 Jan 2024 16:23:40
Good man CF5, great to have a man with the plan.

11.) 25 Jan 2024 16:36:55
Thanks Copland, I already confirmed exactly that the other day.

12.) 25 Jan 2024 16:42:51
Good news.
A couple more quality players and this could be an excellent season ahead.
That’s if our players would stop getting injured every five minutes of course.

13.) 25 Jan 2024 16:58:00
Cheers Copland.

14.) 25 Jan 2024 17:01:41
Thanks for that info Copland. With the Brighton winger going on loan to Vitesse things are looking promising for Manhoef.

15.) 25 Jan 2024 17:13:36
Excellent hopefully we get all targets PC has identified, muchas Gracia's Copeland.

16.) 25 Jan 2024 17:30:04
Thanks CF5 ??.

17.) 25 Jan 2024 17:46:49
Nice to see players coming in, however we really need to trim the squad.

18.) 25 Jan 2024 18:54:25
Still waiting. Is it a late announcement.

19.) 25 Jan 2024 19:04:32
Copeland will the announcement still be tonight with the news of davis retiring or do you think they might leave that till tomorrow out of respect for davis? cheers!

20.) 25 Jan 2024 19:13:38
As usual your info is very much appreciated on here CoplandFront5 ?
Have you anything at all on borna barisic if he's leaving this month mate and is roma definitely in for him ?.

21.) 25 Jan 2024 20:39:38
Still no announcement.

22.) 25 Jan 2024 21:26:13
The squad will trim itself to the tune of 5-6 players all out of contract end of season, Only 1 i can see Clement offering a new deal is Lundstram, in his prime and bossing that CDM position better than ever.

So Jack, Barisic, Roofe, Mcgloughlin, Balogun won't be offered new deals, most of them well past there prime or too injury prone.

Sima - End of Loan.
Silva - End of Loan.

Players out of contract summer 2025.

Lawrence, Lowry, Williamson, Mcrorie, Wright.

23.) 25 Jan 2024 21:35:21
Makes no sense to sell Barisic now, already in our Euro squad, His contributions in the League, Cup and Europa are worth more than we would get for him.

24.) 25 Jan 2024 22:02:47

25.) 25 Jan 2024 22:15:06
Roma are short of LB's just now, with both there 1st team LB's out injured, so maybe they can pull off a cheeky deal for 1 mill for Barisic (worth 5 mill), which then leaves us short for experienced natural LB's, not a good position when we are going up against the big teams now.

Roma are still in Europa too, Feyenoord is all that stands in there way of making it to the last 16 and joining the draw that includes us.

With a front 3 of Dybala, Lukakau, El Sharawy they should smash Feyenoord.

26.) 25 Jan 2024 22:37:21
Balogun should since he is still. fit as feck and clearly Phil rates him above souttar and davies.

27.) 25 Jan 2024 22:38:18
Hope not any panty wetters.

RTV stuff is 100% done, Davis stuff maybe took precedent and after I was told the RTV stuff was done I thought it would’ve been today as it usually tends to be when the RTV stuff is done on the day.

28.) 25 Jan 2024 22:43:54
Laudrup we sold Williamson.

29.) 25 Jan 2024 22:50:06
Seeing is believing ????.

30.) 26 Jan 2024 00:46:48
Thanks for the update Copland. Appreciated.

31.) 26 Jan 2024 01:23:55
John - Cheers for the info, wasn't aware Williamson got sold.

32.) 26 Jan 2024 08:21:05
Not wanting to take shine off Davis retirement. Now frees up the number 10 shirt for Diomande. Can’t wait till this is announced! He’s a baller!

33.) 26 Jan 2024 11:08:12
Bit later than expected but still good info! Thanks for sharing.

34.) 26 Jan 2024 16:00:42
Hope all goes well.

John27, can't find the post to reply to and I forgot to do it anyway when I seen it but on the post last night I made regarding Clement and DOF. You asked a question about Creag Roberson, he's been made Director of Football operations which was effectively Andrew Dicksons job who left in the summer.

It's not the same job as a Director of Football, which the club still want to hire and are resuming interviews for that position.


1.) 10 oct 2023 01:36:59
i thought that copeland but i was unsure if dickson had left. do you think thtthink the dof will be appointrd in same week as new msnager?

2.) 10 Oct 2023 07:06:53
Probably not, but it won’t be long after. Clement made it clear to the board that he would like a DOF in.

3.) 10 Oct 2023 07:09:48
The money we probably had for the DOF will probably go towards Beales payoff knowing this board.

4.) 10 Oct 2023 08:42:20
I'm glad Clement wants a DOF, Beale seemed to want to run the club himself.

5.) 10 Oct 2023 08:53:22
Copland do you think clement will accept the chance to become our 19th permanent manager? I really hope he does as I believe we would be getting the best manager we have had since Walter in him.

6.) 10 Oct 2023 09:52:28
Brilliant info Copland thanks.

7.) 10 Oct 2023 11:46:14
I do Mark. Turned down a money move from Saudi and has made it clear to the board he want it.



23 Jul 2023 22:34:09
Bisgrove, Bennett and rest of the board deserve major credit for this summer. So refreshing to see them actually make the changes that have been needing to be made for a couple of years and they ain't afraid to do it.

Needed a major rebuild this summer and once Danilo and Cifuentes are confirmed ( which will be this week) we should be ready to go barring any departures.

From what I've heard from within the club every single part of it is moving in the same direction, players and staff creating the best atmosphere within the club since the 55 season. Fair play to the board for it all, roll on the start of the proper football.


1.) 23 Jul 2023 23:32:12
CopelandFront5, totally agree.

2.) 23 Jul 2023 23:37:51
Absolutely Copland as I had said. In reply to yourself earlier it’s a major show of intent by the board to go get the players MB wanted his main targets and first choice at that

I definitely think this will turn out to be the best and possibly the strongest squad we have had in a long time by the end of the window

Think for me as I’ve said on more than a few occasions now that Danilo would be the icing on the cake we’re gotng to be going into the new season with some squad

Absolutely hats off to everyone at the club for pulling it off and doing what actually needed done. ??.

3.) 24 Jul 2023 00:05:35
100% agree Copland.

4.) 24 Jul 2023 02:26:08
Bisgrove for president watp.

5.) 24 Jul 2023 06:45:25
Here here Copland.

6.) 24 Jul 2023 08:42:33
Great post copland.



06 Jul 2023 19:38:42
Game scheduled v Livingston tomorrow before squad fly out to Germany.




31 Aug 2022 16:00:00
Tom Lawrence out for 3 weeks with knee injury.

Big loss.


1.) 31 Aug 2022 16:04:58
More like 6 weeks out regarding lawrence.

2.) 31 Aug 2022 16:07:42
This is why we need another midfielder of quality.

3.) 31 Aug 2022 16:13:35
Shame but I guess that allows Tillman to play his more natural position in the middle. I’m glad we have numbers in depth to cover this.

4.) 31 Aug 2022 16:23:39
Has Lawrence injury been confirmed by the club?

5.) 31 Aug 2022 16:23:39
We have Davis, Kamara and Arfield too.

6.) 31 Aug 2022 16:24:16
Gutted over Lawrence is 1 of the guys who would've loved the game on Sat. We've not had any luck with our signings so far but we need to knuckle down and get on with it.

7.) 31 Aug 2022 16:24:17
Heard this earlier anyone seen official confirmation anywhere I have looked and couldn't see it.

8.) 31 Aug 2022 16:30:59
Who in the squad covers Lawrence Dado?

9.) 31 Aug 2022 16:51:00
Lawrence would play on the rw on Saturday sweep be replaced with Wright.

10.) 31 Aug 2022 17:05:15
Replacing Lawrence with Wright. Straight swap then?! ?? Jesus wept!

11.) 31 Aug 2022 17:05:35
Tav goldson sands borna

Lunny kamara

Wright/ arfield colak kent.

12.) 31 Aug 2022 17:09:57
Drop in quality imo GVB. Couple more injuries to the wrong players and this squad looks very thin going into a very important part of the season.

13.) 31 Aug 2022 17:13:23
Probably bang on there Paul.

14.) 31 Aug 2022 17:19:25
Could we move for Barkley now?

15.) 31 Aug 2022 17:25:42
It is going to be a long season, we don't have the squad quality to carry many injuries, especially since we have so many players still injured from last season that had a history of injuries when we bought them! No doubt there will be at least one panic signing tomorrow to placate the fans. No doubt a player carrying an injury that won't be match fit for weeks!

16.) 31 Aug 2022 17:30:57
Jeezo yous are kidding Lawrence injured?
Wright to fill his boots

we’re now looking very lightweight
there really is no strength in depth to our team at all
main core of players injured we don’t have the real quality to keep the first team strong.

17.) 31 Aug 2022 17:33:02
100% sweep still think a big signing will be made.

18.) 31 Aug 2022 17:34:02
Dittuam who do you play on the rw?

19.) 31 Aug 2022 18:05:59
I agree it’s a drop in quality, however that’s the point of the squad. We have more than enough players to cope with a high number of injuries. In my opinion, Tailman moves to the middle and Wright or Matondo on the right.

We only need to sign players if the deal works for us, we’re in a great position.

20.) 31 Aug 2022 18:21:13
Do not want Barkley, and what has Wright done wrong? I know ?, but I think he's done well.

21.) 31 Aug 2022 19:00:35
I wasn't having a go at your post GVB, it was more having to replace Lawrence with Wright. If Tilman goes more central, then Wright is the only choice, just not the best. However, in saying that, he's a better choice than Motondo just now. And for Sakala? Well, least said about him the better.

22.) 31 Aug 2022 19:11:33
The Celtic game, even this early on in the Season will define the rest of this Campaign. We simply cannot afford to drop points. In reality I feel that we need to win because I see us dropping more points like we did against Hibs and so far they haven't looked like dropping any!
We are still a very lightweight squad in terms of quality despite there being so many players on our books.
We are suffering from a failure to bring in quality players at the start of last season when we were league Champions and we continue to fail to bring in quality players even when we have money to spend. Yet at the same time we are talking about letting quality youngsters go out on loan when they are needed as backup.

23.) 31 Aug 2022 20:50:17
The board just don't want to spend any decent money.



27 Aug 2022 20:37:58
Leicester interested in Ryan Kent. They're struggling with FFP so would imagine if they make a move it will be once Fofana goes.


1.) 27 Aug 2022 22:19:11
He's another player I wouldn't like to lose, but Leicester would be a decent move.

They're on the verge of a rebuild and are a decent EPL team.

2.) 27 Aug 2022 22:53:20
Rangers spent £7m on Ryan Kent. A new contract should be put in front of him and if he won't sign it he should be sold. I like Kent, and want him to stay, but he can’t leave for free next summer.

3.) 27 Aug 2022 23:10:48
I think over last two games Kent is finding his mojo, today I thought he played well some lovely footwork with pace I’d like to see more goals but no way would I like him to leave.

4.) 28 Aug 2022 00:28:05
Kent had two assists today.

5.) 28 Aug 2022 00:34:08
How is the wee man 12th man?

6.) 28 Aug 2022 01:08:23
I don't think we'll make much on Kent if he goes.

7.) 28 Aug 2022 12:09:33
If so is there any suggestion who can potentially replace kent. in my opinion matondo needs time and is not the answer right now.

Yes Walter, not sure of exact figures but board are delighted with Castore. Castore are losing a couple of clubs this summer, wanting to make sure they don’t lose us also.

No it hasn’t Blue.

Deals in place with the player. As posted a while ago the plan for him is to be in the country this week coming, both clubs came to an initial agreement for the transfer but the plan was always to let him and his team play the cup final before moving forward with the deal.

He had no suitable offers as they weren’t around the midlands area. He had offers matching what was on the table from us. He chose to say because his family was settled.

Actually feel for CG, had a poor season but the injury under GVB took away the little pace he had which is where his defensive problems really stem from.

That’s also nonsense Kenny. A myth that usually appears when talking about Goldson.

He had offers to go back down south, but he was only going if it meant he was going back home to the Midlands. Family settled in Glasgow with a new born, he wasn’t uprooting that for nothing.

There’s top level championship sides interested in him, and in January Sheffield United and Ipswich were interested in him.

He’s had a poor season but talk of him going down to League 1 is mental.

Mark44 our medical department is a joke.

We signed a player at the start of last season who came with a slight ankle injury, our medical department misdiagnosed it more than once and that player has very rarely been fit while at us. And that’s before you even start to think about players like Roofe/ Helander/ Jack.

This obviously means nothing but calling the RTC ‘Murray park’ is one of my biggest hates amongst rangers fans.

David Murray ruined our club, we should never ever forget that.

But aye on Helander it just sums up our whole medical department.
