Now in the press that Neil Doncaster told the Aberdeen chairman that no vote was needed, before the vote!


1.) 20 Apr 2020 12:58:54
I can't get my head round what is wrong here. It's like saying we are waiting for the western Isle result in a general election but can't tell anyone Boris has a majority of 80 seats. They had their 9 votes needed to pass. If they had only 8 votes and he told them they had the 9 I can see a problem.

2.) 20 Apr 2020 14:03:07
If you'd listened to the Inverness caley bloke speak on sportsound about what went on, it sounds well dodgy. It's all out there on the internet to find.
But at least you're posting something other than we're doomed, we need £10m, etc. 😉.

3.) 20 Apr 2020 15:21:15
Mr G not heard your take on that problem or has it just disappeared.

4.) 20 Apr 2020 15:31:56
You've been playing that same old tune for at least 3 seasons mull. Am just glad you've moved off the finances page😁 am sure you'll be back on them soon enough though😉.

5.) 20 Apr 2020 17:21:35
IOM, in your General Election analogy no election results can be announced until all votes in and the poll officially closed at 10pm on election night. Even exit polls, as opposed to voting results, cannot be communicated until 10pm on election night.

6.) 20 Apr 2020 18:25:03
. Cannot be announced.

7.) 20 Apr 2020 18:22:33
IOM, doubt anyone would phone Western Isles to tell them not to bother voting.

8.) 21 Apr 2020 18:46:54
so Mull conversations pre election close are ok under certain circumstances?



14 Feb 2020 08:36:01
What happened to the new megabucks investment that was rumoured last year?


1.) 14 Feb 2020 10:23:28
DOIGER, it's been rumoured for more than last year.

I personally think we are being taken for mugs wi some o the stuff leaked by our hierarchy.

2.) 14 Feb 2020 10:55:52
it got the flu.

3.) 14 Feb 2020 11:41:58
If you refer to share issue referred to at agm it’s supposed to start around end of March.

4.) 14 Feb 2020 13:07:18
Don't think he means the share issue John, think he means the supposed Chinese billionaire.
I can't speak for him that's up to him but that's the one I'm on about.

5.) 14 Feb 2020 13:31:42
Doiger, the end of next month should see major changes, mate.

6.) 14 Feb 2020 14:28:01
At know time has rangers or anyone connected with rangers said that a Chinese billionaire will be investing in our club
Are you referring to Julian Wolthard one of our directors who many believe will buy more shares in our club and possibly Be the man to replace king as our chairman.

Blue billy where are you getting info re billionaire investing in us mate.

7.) 14 Feb 2020 16:09:56
It was on here last year John and not just once, that made it look like not just a rumour, also saw something in the papers about it many months ago.

8.) 14 Feb 2020 16:47:43
Blue billy that’s guys like u me etc posting rumours. Don’t think it’s happening.

9.) 14 Feb 2020 17:46:34
You prob right John but I def saw something in papers a long time ago.
Time will tell but wi you on prob nothing going to happen .

Cheers mate.

10.) 14 Feb 2020 18:07:05
Sirwalter there has been rumours in papers some attributed to Alex Rae. As you say time will tell.

11.) 14 Feb 2020 18:08:16
Guys u picking up elite default on paying us three million they owe us, we served court papers on them, I predict they will fold.

12.) 14 Feb 2020 19:05:06
John, do you think the mysterious french billionaire you met in Dubai, and who told you everything is the new money man?

That’s the word in China.

13.) 14 Feb 2020 19:28:10
No I don’t. I think he was a chancer Tommy.

14.) 15 Feb 2020 20:08:47
Respect for reply John.



24 Jan 2020 08:52:23
Anyone read about possible interest in Charlton Athletic's Lyle Taylor. I think there were rumours on here quite recently. 29 year-old striker who seems to be unsettled.


1.) 24 Jan 2020 11:26:15
Rumours all over papers for weeks now. Bang average striker imo.

2.) 24 Jan 2020 12:57:53
spot on paul

from what i’ve read and seen he looks a journeyman at best nowhere near what we need. I hope we can still get a striker in even a loan for run in

i remember we signed wee barry back on last day of window and smellies got bellamy

wonder if SG has something up his sleeve.

3.) 24 Jan 2020 13:26:24
Read it on a few sites but wages would be a stumbling block unless it is a freebie.

4.) 24 Jan 2020 16:42:42
Swap doherty for taylor at Charlton



16 Dec 2019 13:11:14
Drawn against Braga of Portugal in Europa League. Having disposed of Porto surely we have a great chance to reach the last 16?


1.) 16 Dec 2019 13:50:14
Agreed doiger, we have a great chance o progressing to the last 16 giving the fact we drew with one of the best teams in there leauge Porto drawing 1-1 away and winning. 2-0 at ibrox convincingly.

2.) 16 Dec 2019 13:50:50
This is my hope if we get to the last 16 money is real good.

3.) 16 Dec 2019 16:34:18
Yea the draw could have been much
Worse hopefully at least 16 beckons
And a few more quid in, the bank.

4.) 16 Dec 2019 17:36:59
Lads don't be fooled by Bragas league position. I agree it's a very winable tie but they were the top scorers in the league section of the Europa League with 15 goals and won all 3 of their away games beating Wolves, Besiktas and Slovan Bratislava. I still believe we can win this one and get to the last 16 but I'm just saying we shouldn't underestimate them because they are not as well known a team as we could have drawn.

C'mon the gers.

5.) 16 Dec 2019 17:57:40
Braga have a few good players. The 2 Horta's, trincao etc and they've comfortably won nearly everything in there way in the EL this season. Very tricky but do-able.

6.) 16 Dec 2019 18:23:47
Would still have took them over inter ajax etc. 50/ 50 tie good chance of progress.

7.) 17 Dec 2019 05:41:40
Good draw, but they were a better team than wolves in their group, and I wouldn't have fancied wolves tbh!
One step at a time
Onward and upward.

8.) 17 Dec 2019 06:55:53
Tough task non the less, Bragg have obviously set their sites on Europe and they’re a different team on match day in europa league games, one of those clubs who know thy won’t win the Portuguese league but can do well in Europe, ie Seville,

Very good in group stages,

9.) 17 Dec 2019 11:50:53
Does anyone know if the draw for the last 16, should we make it through, is an open draw, i. e. could we be drawn against the unwashed in the last 16?

10.) 17 Dec 2019 15:21:51
Yes we could Doiger.

11.) 17 Dec 2019 16:24:43
A word of warning guys re Braga. just remember. when we won the Cup Winners Cup in season 71/ 72 we were a distant third in the league 16 points behind Celtic. we were positively schizophrenic that season our league performances having no correlation to our performances on the European front.



08 Dec 2019 11:32:50
I've looked at all the major newspaper/ media websites this morning and can see no reference to Davis and or Kent not making it today. Barisic is the only injury doubt in the press. Where do these 'rumours' come from?


1.) 08 Dec 2019 12:23:48
Hope you're spot on, Doiger.

2.) 08 Dec 2019 13:38:11
Doiger story at corporate no Davis, hope they r wrong.

3.) 08 Dec 2019 13:50:10
Spoke about this earlier. Davis our with a calf strain. Etta miss 3-4 weeks.

06 Jul 2020 11:07:59
That is a shame about Katic's injury and I liked him as a player, but I don't think we need to go and sign someone else for central defence. Goldson and Edmondson are here and isn't Helander still a Rangers player? Can McCrorie be recalled from loan? I also thought new signing Bassey could cover at CB?


1.) 06 Jul 2020 12:14:29
mccrorie not a centre half mate. Sure gerrard has already said as much.

2.) 06 Jul 2020 12:32:30
Agreed, promote youth, Bassey/ youth as 4th choice CB, let's not waste any more wages on someone who won’t play.

3.) 06 Jul 2020 13:18:44
Apart from Bassey who is under six foot none off our academy players r ready to play ch.

4.) 06 Jul 2020 17:04:00
Joh25 I'm sure Lewis Mayo could handle a game or two against Ross County, St Midden, Kilmarnock, St Johnstone etc. We'll never know until we try him in a couple. He's 6ft 3in, strong, good in the air and has young legs.

5.) 06 Jul 2020 17:45:01
Not sure we have a young player that is ready to play Centre back. Unfortunately we don't have a player like Derek Johnston that at 16 was capable of playing both centre half and centre forward. Given the thugs that masquerade as strikers at clubs like Aberdeen we need centre backs that can look after themselves! There was a suggestion previous that Scott Dan on loan might be an option. I thought that was a good call!

6.) 06 Jul 2020 18:27:13
Would like to see young lad Mayo given a chance and run out as CH cover.

7.) 06 Jul 2020 20:42:37
Covenanter I had forgot about him. He has not played above academy level but agree they need tried sometime.



25 Jun 2020 09:08:24
I think it's great that we are signing talented youngsters like Graham and keeping Stephen Kelly on but my question is when on earth will any of these youngsters be given a chance. Even Ally McCoist didn't give youth a chance when we were in the lower leagues so will/ can Gerrard do so when the pressure is on to stop them getting a tainted 10iar?


1.) 25 Jun 2020 10:24:06
short answer is no, i don't believe we will risk stopping 10iar with youngsters in the team. maybe 1 or 2 after the league is won (if its won) but not in the build up.

2.) 25 Jun 2020 10:47:12
Doiger if they were good enough and we could afford the risk then they would be played. People needto realise that a lot of our youth just ain't ready to compete for a first team place.

3.) 25 Jun 2020 11:18:44
Well our tried and trusted experienced players weren't good enough to win the league (again) were they? What did Alan Hansen say about Man Utd a few years ago. You'll never win anything with kids!

4.) 25 Jun 2020 22:10:25
Most of our good youngsters, are around the 18 mark, plenty of time to develop 👍.

5.) 26 Jun 2020 00:14:58
Klos was regularly top of the most beaten keeper from outside his box stats, if he stayed in his line he could’ve been one the best, could never understand why he was constantly off his line?

Anyway charbonnier and wattereus were way underrated, charbonnier put in one hell of a display one day I’d never seen anything like it 🤔 well not since the day Goram v Celtic and saving from van Hooydonkey from point blank 😆, charbonnier still the only World Cup winner at ibrox as far as I know 🤔 I also rated Alexander, great keeper and underrated, Bonnie Ginsburg, obviously woods, we’ve always had great keepers, kinda blessed in that department 😆.



22 Jun 2020 09:06:25
Morning Bears. That's great news that 32,000 season tickets have already been sold for next season even though the first few games might well be played behind closed doors. What a fantastic support. The whole underlying financial situation seems to be getting better by the week. I live on the south coast so rarely get a chance to watch my beloved Rangers live but I'm going to see about buying a season ticket as a gesture of support for my team.


1.) 22 Jun 2020 10:20:34
would be 32004 if the damned system was working.



16 Jun 2020 15:54:34
Just for fun (try not to be biased) best Old Firm eleven ever? (in old-fashioned line-up) :

Goram; McGrain, Caldow;
Greig, McNeill, Baxter;
Johnstone, Gazza, McCoist, Laudrup, Wilson.


1.) 16 Jun 2020 16:58:33
You'll struggle to find unbiased opinions on here doiger. No laughing at the back😂👍.

2.) 16 Jun 2020 18:01:55
Would have Sandy Jardine in myself and Kenny Dalglish if I'm being honest.

3.) 16 Jun 2020 18:57:38
No Larson?

4.) 16 Jun 2020 19:10:56
Given that overseas players could be in the team i would see a number of changes to your lineup. Instead ofGoram; McGrain, Caldow;
Greig, McNeill, Baxter;
Johnstone, Gazza, McCoist, Laudrup, Wilson,
I would suggest the following and I might just be tempted to have Ronnie Simpson in goal, Jardine would have to play so McGrain would have to go and I fully agree with Caldow. I might be tempted to play Murdoch instead of Greig, Butcher or Gough, or Amoruso rather than McNeil and Baxter is a no brainer. Too many quality wingers to make that one an easy decision, Henderson on his day was as good as Johnstone, it might even become a necessity to move players out of position to accommodate the best and for me both Laudrup and Larsson need to be in the team, Gazza is another no brainer and while I was a big fan of Davey Wilson, what about Cooper or indeed Bobby Lennox. Not an easy choice.



14 Jun 2020 09:08:00
Greatest British players I have ever seen:

1. George Best
2. Gazza
3. Slim Jim

What's your top 3?


1.) 14 Jun 2020 09:25:29
I would agree in the same order as you DOIGER👍.

2.) 14 Jun 2020 10:08:15
Slim Jim

3.) 14 Jun 2020 10:19:59
Baxter Best Gazza.

4.) 14 Jun 2020 10:35:01
I had the privelage of seeing all three in action, all different styles of player and I would have loved to see Best in a Rangers shirt. For me Baxter was the best left half that Scotland will ever produce. No one modern day comes close to Best in his position, I remember seeing him destroy Scotland at Hampden. As for Gazza, he was the nearest player at Rangers that I have seen to Baxter. Three absolute geniuses with a football. I simply can't separate them but if I had to then Baxter would come top. Dalglish was a good player as he proved at Liverpool but not in the same class as Gazza, Best and Baxter. There are other quality players as well for me, John Whyte at Spurs back in the 1960's, Rodney Marsh, Sir Stanley Matthews, only saw him in the twilight of his career and he still looked a quality player.

5.) 14 Jun 2020 11:23:33
Best, Best and Best! Seriously, Best, Gazza and Baxter.
My dad was a centre half played with and against world class players in both Scotland and England. He was too old to play against Best (who he thought was phenomenal) but his top 3 were Tom Finney, Duncan Edwards and Billy Steel.

6.) 14 Jun 2020 11:27:48
Best Gazza Dalglish are my 3 which I seen play in the flesh. I had seen George Best play on a few occasions, But remember going to watch Best play for the Hibs against Celtic at Easter Road with a Hibs mate. Standing on the terrace all I heard was Cunny ya wee Orange B. Everyone was looking about for this guy called Cunny. It was only at halftime I realised It was Celtic guys I knew from my home town off Broxburn standing behind us. We still have a laugh about it to this day when I go back to Scotland to see family. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🇦🇺⚽️😎👍.

7.) 14 Jun 2020 11:32:30

In that order. For me if Durrant had not been assaulted at Pittodrie that day could have gone on to be one of the best our country ever produced, but that year or so pre injury I thought he was unplayable.

8.) 14 Jun 2020 13:14:20
Cambiger- I remember that game, that challenge on Durrant as if it were yesterday. Durrant was simply magnificent, he would waltz by players as if they weren't there. He also had a great shot on him. At the time there was a lot of focus and attention on him. Your absolutely correct Durrant would of went far if it wasnt for that horrific tackle. I wonder where he would of ended up. Such a shame. Fantastic talent.

9.) 14 Jun 2020 13:48:12
Best, Gazza and Dalgleish. I was behind the goal at the San Jose Earthquakes vs Fort Lauderdale Strikers game when Best scored that wonder goal. still keep thinking of that goal 39 years later, wonderful skill.

10.) 14 Jun 2020 13:53:02
I was up at the sheepdome the day that useless piece of s**t simpson crushed durranty's knee with a horrendous tackle. He was some attacking midfielder ian durrant and as a few of us will know liverpool at the time were very interested in him, 'till that injury that day. I was also told juventus were watching him closely as well. He would have been close to the gascoigne mould, if neil simpson, hadn't crippled him!

11.) 14 Jun 2020 15:14:50
To me dagliesh was a genius at liverpool and I would put him top. Best was amazing but only when he was in the mood. Gazza was best player in the world in world cup 90. Imagine a team with they 3 in it.

12.) 14 Jun 2020 15:16:44
SHL, I was supposed to be going to that game also but was asked to work all day (double time) . I still stayed at home with my folks and remember my dad telling me about Durrants injury when I got home. I like many many others was absolutely gutted. Do you know, I've watched that tackle once and that was enough.

13.) 14 Jun 2020 15:29:24
Two players not mentioned from my early days following Rangers, are Davy Wilson and MacMillan.

14.) 14 Jun 2020 15:49:01
SHL, Nottingham Forest were also very interested in Durrant and had been keeping a close eye on him ( according to my dad ) . Remember Forest were a premiership team at that time. However i wasn't aware of Juventus interest.

15.) 14 Jun 2020 16:52:04
Guys I agree others woulda been interested but at that time I genuinely believe we were the biggest club in Britain. Attracting Souness, Butch, Wilkins, Steven etc etc . There’s no way he would have left for another British side. A few years later after start of Prem things changed .

16.) 14 Jun 2020 16:56:51
Gazza, Gerrard, Bale, in my era I’d say three best British players I’ve seen, obviously Mcoist n Hately ain’t too far away too 👍👍👍.

17.) 14 Jun 2020 17:52:18
George Best was, by some distance, the best ever British born player. Baxter and Gascoigne would be next. There is then a whole group of greats who were wonderful to watch but lacked the absolute genius of the three at the top.

Seeker. Poignant post. When I was too young to go and watch Rangers my Dad took me to Dens Park and I saw the like of Gilzean, Ure, Hamilton and the others. My grandfather Jimmy Rankin played for Rangers, albeit briefly, which is why I'm a Bear, I still love my hometown which is why this crap saddens me. Stay safe.

Though I'm a born and bred Dundonian now exiled down south, I am a Bear through and through and I've got to say how ashamed I am at the behaviour of my home city's two senior teams, first United and now Dundee. Disgraceful.

There is little doubt in my mind that reconstruction is on the table to appease Hearts in particular and Dundee United too and to ensure the unwashed are 'crowned' champions. How sad, pathetic and undignified is all this in the light of the current coronavirus crisis? It just sums up to me the morals of the dark side (which includes more than just the mhanks) .

Let's hope Gerrard plays Hagi his best position. If he is half as good as his father was he'll be great for us. I think Arfield can offer more if played in his best position. We need goals from midfield to take the weight of Morelos (if he stays! ) .

08 Jul 2020 08:06:35
Not disagreeing with what you say Supercoop but how do you think Gerrard can cure the problem of breaking down teams who park the bus against us? It can't just be about taking chances, but also having a creative midfield spark to make openings. Maybe Hagi will provide that missing piece?

When I played amateur football in Dundee (only Lochee United level mind) there were players all over the park cajoling, shouting, motivating their teammates. Not just the captain. It is about teamwork. A captain can be good off the park as well as on it. Leaders on the park will appear naturally. Tom Forsyth, Ally McCoist, Andy Goram, Jorg Albertz, Fernando Ricksen (the late, great) . All were great players and motivators on the park. Let's be positive about next season. I've been critical of Tavernier, but he is a very good player whether captain or not!

05 Jul 2020 11:17:29
Supercoop, good post. One man (e. g. the captain) doesn't win games or make a team. From what I've seen of Tavernier he is a talented player, quite fast and strong. He does seem to get himself out of position too often which begs the question why doesn't SG push him forward to right midfield with someone else (Patterson? ) at right back.
