Anyone heard anything about our supposed interest in signing Ben Brereton from Blackburn? He doesn't have a great scoring record but seems to be highly thought of!


1.) 02 Mar 2021 16:25:04
I hope not a striker with a two goals in 43.

2.) 02 Mar 2021 16:45:38
Maybe he’s been playing in a new role John?

3.) 02 Mar 2021 17:23:59
Tom must be goalkeeper.

4.) 02 Mar 2021 18:17:04
Haha, , hows the horses treating you John?

5.) 02 Mar 2021 18:27:30
Tom. Not bet much recently, prefer to be able to walk into a shop.

6.) 02 Mar 2021 18:36:45
Absolutely not. He's a below average player at best. Where did you hear we were interested?

7.) 02 Mar 2021 19:46:30
Be as well with ben Dover, much better scoring record.

8.) 02 Mar 2021 20:09:49
Below average at best, fm, you really couldn’t make it up could you, and if it so happens that Stevie Gerard is interested in the boy, , will he be below average at best too?

9.) 02 Mar 2021 21:01:20
Adam Armstrong is top scorer in Championship playing for a mid table side in Blackburn would be a better signing IMO but I’d be hopeful we would be looking at players from decent European sides in smaller leagues like Jelavic when we got him from Rapid Vienna a £5m+ striker that is either up and coming or an International for Sweden, Denmark, Croatia sides like that where the players are good but affordable.

10.) 02 Mar 2021 21:32:04
Btw, for people who know something about football, Ben brereton is very highly regarded in the championship, a good chance he will move on from Blackburn, wonder if Scott Wright was “ below average “ just a couple of weeks ago?

If Rangers coaches are indeed interested then so am I, one thing is for certain, the boy is definitely not “ below average “.

11.) 02 Mar 2021 21:34:21
Blackburn apparently paid £7m for the lad!
Crazy down there.

12.) 02 Mar 2021 21:42:19
John I prefer going into betting shops hate online betting.

13.) 02 Mar 2021 21:54:11
Me too but needs must, , Betfred has the worst online site you could ever imagine,

14.) 03 Mar 2021 09:16:33
Can’t beat the bookies! The smelly of stale pish from angry pensioners is hypnotic 🙌🏻.

15.) 03 Mar 2021 11:41:21
kJ I agree. I don’t get abuzz from on line betting, it’s nice to go up to payout wind and lift your winnings.

16.) 03 Mar 2021 17:54:57
Sorry, Mr Thumb, to have offended you with an opinion, but your bombastic, badgering, bullying replies cut no ice with me. Nobody mentioned anybody other than the player in question - except your ignorant self to try to make some sort of ridiculous point which escapes me - and as for your post for 'those who know something about football', how ridiculous. I have my A Licence, I coached at a high level for years, I played the game and I form opinions on the game and on players. If they don't suit you, tough.

17.) 04 Mar 2021 01:43:40
Sorry mate, and I appreciate you have a very serious dislike of me, but I have to say this, I have friends who worked for Rangers and other clubs for years, one even brought through the likes of Ferguson and miller

Never in a million years would they describe a young player, they know almost zero about as “ a below average player “

So if you’re a coach who speaks about young players like that, then that’s worrying,

Incredible you should respond like that when I suggested you describe someone you don’t know like that, , I genuinely hope any parents aren’t expecting much.



06 Jan 2021 13:48:38
Heard a few stories doing the rounds that we may be looking at a bid for Kevin Nisbet from Hibernian. Decent striker who definitely has an eye for goal.


1.) 06 Jan 2021 14:13:16
Hope you're rumours/ stories are correct regarding kevin nisbet mate 👍 I like him and he's a good striker who imo would become better at rangers 🤔How good do you reckon your sources are regarding kevin nisbet, DoTheBouncy 🤔🤔.

2.) 06 Jan 2021 14:31:45
Do the bouncy not sure we need a fifth choice striker at this stage unless a couple leaving in window.

3.) 06 Jan 2021 14:46:21
A player i would like to see us move for. My only worry is he is a pretty similar style player to itten.

4.) 06 Jan 2021 15:19:23
Oh dear, such a lack of ambition for our club. Who would you drop for him? He'd be 5th choice striker and we need players who are better than we already have, not inferior back up journeymen.

5.) 06 Jan 2021 15:34:33
Tavsonloyal he would be a great addition to our squad. its about time we were forward thinking with our transfers. if Tav and Roofe hadn't scored so many goals who knows where we would be as Itten hasn't settled in yet, Alfie isn't scoring and Defoe doesn't play regularly. if Nisbet was to sign it would be a step in the right direction for next season when we need to kick on again. come next season i don't think that Defoe or Alfie will be with the club. it would give Nisbet time to settle in and be ready for next season as happened with Davis. i would love him to join and hope he does.

6.) 06 Jan 2021 15:47:30
Bit young to be a journey man but for me also he isn’t better than what we’ve got. I’d like to see some of our own promising young players get a chance before we go for the likes of players like Nisbet, Shankland etc.

7.) 06 Jan 2021 16:48:11
BBC reporting that Sunderland have asked Hibs for their valuation of
Nisbet. He's not for me.

8.) 06 Jan 2021 17:08:17
Not sure I can say if the sources are good or bad, but a lot of talk here in Fife around him being watched with a move coming this month IF there is a chance of him being moved on elsewhere. The guys who were speaking about that in a group chat I am in (probably the equivalent of talk in the pub these days, I know) have about a 75% hit rate when they talk about signings.

Fifth choice striker you say guys? Defoe will retire at the end of the season or move on at least, Morelos might be moving on and is really struggling for goals at the moment, Itten isn't as impressive as we had hoped, Roofe is quality but picked up a few injuries already. I'm not saying Nisbet would be a cast iron starter in every game, but he would certainly do a job for us. If Mr Gerrard decides to sign him, I trust his judgement.

9.) 06 Jan 2021 17:19:16
You've got to remember tavsonloyal,
that in all probability morelos and defoe may well be away from rangers this summer and i've always preferred/ liked the idea of bringing a player in on january to possibly bed in for 6 months, before the new season starts ie glen kamara 🤔 Say no more! It's only my opinion and i did say when we were watching kevin nisbet when he was at the pars, that i liked him as a striker and much preferred him to lawrence shankland 👍I still think we should have signed nisbet, as with us i believe he would have moved on to a better level, than he currently is at hibs at this moment in time 🤔Hibs i believe got him for 250k which was a steal again imo. DoTheBouncy how much do you reckon or anyone on here reckon it would take to sign nisbet from hibs at this moment in time 🤔.

10.) 06 Jan 2021 17:50:24
SGL, we all know when the famous come calling in Scotland there is another '0' added to the price.
Hibs will ask for 1.5 mill.

11.) 06 Jan 2021 18:54:15
It wouldn't surprise me BAR72,so wha would be your valuation for nisbet, if we were to bid for him🤔
No higher than what amount?

12.) 06 Jan 2021 19:50:09
All the football snobs out in force the night lol

If his name was nisbettdinho people would be happy 😃.

13.) 06 Jan 2021 20:19:55
£750.000 to £1 mill for nisbet

Get him for £750.000 tell hibs keep him till summer . SIMPLES lol.

14.) 06 Jan 2021 21:04:47
500-750k with add ons, no more.

15.) 06 Jan 2021 22:10:44
Itten needs game time, he has bn impressive when played. More game time n he will show what he's about 110%.

16.) 06 Jan 2021 22:14:11
I believe Hibs will look for around a million. They have Murphy on loan just now I think, so maybe a possibility of cutting a deal with him involved?

17.) 07 Jan 2021 05:42:38
I’d take Lewis Ferguson and Nisbett for next season. Davies won’t last forever, Jack is injured a lot so there’s a place for Ferguson to fight for.
Up top Morelos will be sold and Defoe as great a finisher as he is, is another who’s coming to the end and wouldn’t surprise me to see him retire with a league winners medal now that his chances are so limited.
I could be wrong and as he’s a fit vegan he may bide his time for a crack at Champions league next season knowing Alfie is likely to leave and although I’d expect another to be signed if Morelos does go Defoe might have another year in him.
There’s little risk in signing players from our league who take less time to settle and if they have the right mentality can succeed at Rangers and I think both these players do.

18.) 07 Jan 2021 07:39:13
DoTheBouncy, we can't include jamie murphy in any deal for kevin nisbet, as that deal has already been done mate 👍 Murphy's permanent deal to hibs kicks in once his loan spell ends!

19.) 07 Jan 2021 09:52:05
Can't see us adding Nesbit or Shankland when we are close to adding Alegria. He is the striker being brought in to settle in and take Alfie's spot in the summer when he leaves.

20.) 07 Jan 2021 12:14:38
Alegria supposed to be getting medical tomorrow.

21.) 07 Jan 2021 13:15:20
I honestly don't get some on here 🤔
What's wrong with us hoovering up and signing talent here in scotland and making them better with the coaches we have at rangers 🤔A good few seem to think because certain players are from any other country bar scotland, that they must/ will be better for rangers, which of course is one load of 💩.

22.) 07 Jan 2021 14:16:35
Once again u can’t stick to queens language.
Since when did our club become super rich that we can simply hoover up players.
We have to continue to be prudent in the market.

23.) 07 Jan 2021 15:10:10
If they're talented enough within scottish football my point being is we should be looking to sign them that's it John25, lock stock and barrel pal👍.

24.) 07 Jan 2021 15:11:54
John25, nothing personal intended here pal but what is your beef with me🤔.

25.) 07 Jan 2021 15:35:34
No beef, but u don’t need to resort to poor language your much better than that.
Can u tell me any Scottish player we could sign now that would enhance our team right now.

26.) 07 Jan 2021 15:43:31
Do the bouncy Murphy leaves on freedom of contract in may.

27.) 07 Jan 2021 18:34:31
Rangers would destroy carreers by hoovering up Scottish talents on the phone FF chance that they may get better under out coaches.

28.) 07 Jan 2021 18:35:18
Its about planning for even as soon as the end of the season John25,
when we will sell/ lose players. Its only my opinion that if we hypothetically speaking signed kevin nisbet now, it would allow a bedding in period ie like glen kamara. We could realistically lose both defoe and morelos at the end of the season and i think nisbet has the talent and would get even better if he were to become a rangers player, i see this in the young man mate and that's my opinion 👍🇬🇧.

29.) 07 Jan 2021 18:50:40
The boy Winter from Hamilton looks a really good prospect!

30.) 07 Jan 2021 18:54:04
Itten will be number 1 striker when Alfie goes. The way SG talks him up to me he's going to be number 1. This is his 'bedding' in time.

31.) 07 Jan 2021 20:23:16
John25 you're undoubtedly an experienced/ knowledgeable guy so what's your take on these questions mate 🤔 Who will eventually be our no.1 striker (central), who will be our longterm replacement for borna barisic, if as expected he's sold in the summer, who in your opinion should/ will be steven davis's longterm replacement and if as expected who will/ should be glen kamara's replacement if he's sold in the summer 🤔.

32.) 07 Jan 2021 20:46:23
Cof ibrox we have looked at him. He played for us in a tournament abroad. Good young player. Very highly regarded at Hamilton
Is old man is the former grade one ref Brian Winter.

33.) 08 Jan 2021 09:16:52
SGL anyone’s guess. Our recruitment will be planning that.
If we get alegria he will be better than Alf, have you seen his five goals in game against chezc
Bassey will replace barisic, who I don’t expect to be sold in the summer.

34.) 08 Jan 2021 09:19:12
I think 800k buys nisbit if we loan him straight back 1.2 million if we don’t probably.

35.) 08 Jan 2021 10:37:50
TBH John25,i've not seen alegria's 5 goals mate! When you say you reckon alegria will be a better striker than morelos, do you mean ie. a better/ more natural goalscorer, a better all round striker etc🤔.

36.) 08 Jan 2021 11:09:32
Better all round. He very much reminds me a bit of Ronaldo the Brazilian.
Try see his goals, Columbia v checkoslovakia.

37.) 08 Jan 2021 13:33:09
If he's a quarter as good as the brazilian ronaldo, that will most definitely do for me, John25 👍👌.

38.) 08 Jan 2021 17:55:35
John25,in your opinion do you reckon juan alegria even though he's years younger than kevin nisbet, is even at this moment in time a better striker and prospect than nisbet 🤔.

39.) 08 Jan 2021 22:09:35
I know for a fact the boy Nisbet is a big Celtic man.
Whether it’s relevant or not as to him being interested is another matter.
As there have been a few Celtic fans played for rangers and did well.

40.) 09 Jan 2021 22:06:44
Neil McCann being e best 👌.

Heard a few times now that we are being linked to Fernando Torres who is seemingly making a comeback and announcing it on Friday. Personally I'm not sure if this is a goer, but if it is and he is the Torres from his Liverpool days, he would be some signing. If however, it's the Chelsea Torres, then not so much!


1.) 27 May 2021 11:00:33
No thanks. We already have 1 old striker that barely gets a game.

2.) 27 May 2021 11:20:20
That boat has sailed a long time ago.

3.) 27 May 2021 12:28:57
Let him go to Celtic 🤣🤣.

4.) 27 May 2021 20:34:54
Nope this would be a disaster.



15 Apr 2021 11:32:08
There are reports this morning linking Helander with Aston Villa and Leicester.


1.) 15 Apr 2021 12:06:33
Helander has been a top performer for us. I can see him moving on👍.

2.) 15 Apr 2021 13:16:08
I would be quite happy to sell Helander if we made a decent profit on him. What would you consider a good offer for him? Say we get offered 8 million would that be enough?

3.) 15 Apr 2021 13:45:57
10 mill minimum for helander. We have never lost a league game he has played in. Decent stat. Big man is solid.

4.) 15 Apr 2021 13:46:03
I thought the 8mil mark aswell 3cheers. 👍.

5.) 15 Apr 2021 13:48:25
I would rather get rid of Katic and Edmundson and offer Helander a pay rise. 👍.

6.) 15 Apr 2021 13:51:25
Considering we spent around £3m on him, he is a full Swedish international and will play at this years euro's i'd be looking for something in and around £10m.

In todays market i think most would agree that is fair all round and i think the player will have desire to play in the premier league.

7.) 15 Apr 2021 14:11:10
Totally agree MrPH. Why get rid off best ch unless for sill money, ie 15 million.

8.) 15 Apr 2021 14:39:08
10 million and sell as we can replace him.

9.) 15 Apr 2021 14:40:54
Personally, I would prefer to see him staying at the club, but as I have said before any and every player could be sold if the correct bid comes in for him. I would say 8-10 million sounds about right for Helander.

10.) 15 Apr 2021 15:32:15
Kja91 Replace him with who exactly. 🇦🇺🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿⚽️🇬🇧👍.

11.) 15 Apr 2021 16:41:34
FC1962 that’s SG and ROss Wilson job thanks very much.

Also the boy we signed in jan could replace him.

Is that a good enough answer for you 🙈.

12.) 15 Apr 2021 19:24:43
Massively under selling the big man here tims wanting 15mill for ajer. Goldson and helander are our best cemtre halfs by quite a bit followed by balogun. The rest have a long way to go.

13.) 16 Apr 2021 02:16:07
Kja91 Why make a statement saying we can replace him Then come away with that’ SG and RW job When I would have thought you had a replacement in mind. So NAW you’re answer isn’t good enough. 🤪. 🇦🇺🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿⚽️🇬🇧👍.



08 Apr 2021 09:32:30
This could be hilarious if true, I am now hearing that Celtic have walked away from any deal with Eddie Howe and are now trying to entice the former Dortmund manager Lucien Favre. My understanding is that Howe was throwing obstacles in at every chance he could and Celtic have grown weary of it.


{Ed002's Note - Favre is a really great coach. So I am not sure why you find it funny.}

1.) 08 Apr 2021 09:40:11
Family factors and not much of a transfer budget I've heard. Howe feels he needs about 40 or 50 million to rebuild a shocking squad players. Celtic's finances ain't as great as the eastenders make you believe.

2.) 08 Apr 2021 09:46:03
I'd rather they got Howe than Favre, but whoever gets it has got one helluva job on their hands. Happy days.

3.) 08 Apr 2021 09:50:05
I would much rather have Howe as their manager than Favre.
I think DTB finds the whole Howe situation funny rather than Farve becoming their manager. It's been widely reported in the media up here that Howe has agreed to the job, but according to Howe's agent, nothing has been agreed and any deal is a long way off. Also, some has-been singer (celtic fan) was spouting that he has seen Howe house hunting in Glasgow, but that was also rubbish.

4.) 08 Apr 2021 10:05:58
Farve is fantasy aswell.

5.) 08 Apr 2021 10:17:42
Favre won't come near a backwater in European football like Scotland, there is more chance of me becoming their manager than Favre. What I find hilarious is that they have basically made it clear that Howe was coming to the post, where in reality they have never spoken with him to discuss minutiae, all that was done was ask him if he would be interested. He is holding out for the Crystal Palace job that will become vacant in the summer. Kennedy will end up with the job.

6.) 08 Apr 2021 10:56:30
Celtic have been doing this for decades. In every single transfer window. There is a leak to the press that they are going for this superstar. Make contact, then offer a crappy deal. Then say to their guilable fans. Yes but we tried to sign this one and that one but they wanted to much cash.

7.) 08 Apr 2021 11:49:51
As if to prove my point, Favre is poised take a £6m a year offer to take on a Saudi Arabian club.

8.) 08 Apr 2021 11:58:16
Confirmed on SSN this morning Howe isn't happening. Shame, pretty mediocre manager, just a big name.

9.) 08 Apr 2021 12:06:18
Obviously the Saudi Arabian league is a mouthwatering prospect for players and managers. Such a competitive and exciting league with 6 million reasons to work in such an environment. 🐪🐫💰💰💰.

10.) 08 Apr 2021 13:06:52
You saying you wouldn't go there for £6m a year then 3 cheers?

11.) 08 Apr 2021 13:40:01
Once the stadiums are full again, we get independent officials and everybody leaves them alone, they'll stop us in our tracks. What? I'm serious, it's a given.

12.) 08 Apr 2021 15:11:31
If someone offered me a job for 6 million a year in Saudi then I would get there tonight looking forward to the first day in my new job.



06 Apr 2021 13:33:08
The Sun is reporting today that we are keen to sign Manchester United midfielder James Garner who is currently on loan at Nottingham Forest. It goes on to say that clubs in England are chasing him as well, so it may be the usual tactic of using us to get the teams south of the border to bid for him.




09 Mar 2021 12:03:34
Daft moments watching Rangers! Back in the days that papers used to offer free bets on Old Firm day, three of us had got our free bets and chose a correct score. All of us had backed 3-2. Into injury time, 3-1 up against them at Ibrox. They get a corner and big Yogi Hughes bullets a header toward the top corner. McGregor (I think, might have been Kloss, I was drunk at the time) leaps across goal in the blink of an eye, fingertip on the ball, onto the bar and safely away. Cue the three of us to go daft as that one save did us out of a free day on the bevvy. Everyone around us looking at us as if we were mad (probably correct to be fair) but we calmed down in time to mock the tims who were sitting nearest us.

If 9-10m is offered he will be sold, with a sell on clause. He had a good season, but his form could dip and we would then be unlikely to get a similar offer in future. Even if he continued his form we would be unlikely to get a bigger offer any time soon.

Kelty are probably the most well off club in the lower leagues right now. If you think that Kelty don't have cash, how do you think they can attract managers like Barry Ferguson and Kevin Thomson?

Celtic have played nobody yet, and even their most die hard fans will tell you that the defence is paper thin. I certainly don't fear them and still think that "ange" will not last the season. Once we hit some form we will blow them away again.

I see they are getting 9,000 in for their home tie! Guess impartiality goes out of the window when Glasgow City Council's favoured team are asking for more bums on seats.
