A couple of hours before Pedro got sacked the Daily Record was reporting that Nacho Novo had been summoned to a meeting with the board.

I can't seem to find anything about it online though or the original article.

Anyone have any clue if this actually happened or what it might have been about? And is the guy still helping out at training now that Pedro has gone?

I would imagine he will be a link between the new management team and the Latinos, makes good sense really, Rangers man and understands their culture

I seem to remember Gerrard saying he wanted one more before Candeias left. Assuming Barker is a straight swap for him, just wondering what area of the squad still needs strengthened before the window shuts?

Keeper is sorted, we have 3 decent players who can play at either full back. Central defence also sorted, same as midfield. We have 2 quality forwards and the 3rd choice striker in Sadiq/ lafferty hardly got a sniff last season. Don't see much point in spending money on a 3rd choice when we have half decent youth if needed.

My only concern would be on the wings. Are jones, ojo, Barker and Stewart a step up from last season? With the manager letting Murphy go out on loan, he must think so. To be fair to them, they have been pretty impressive so far.

Assuming Gerrard gets his "one more". Just wondering what position people think still needs strengthened before the window shuts?

Dunc

1.) 12 Aug 2019 10:46:59
Could use Stewart as a striker I suppose as a 3rd option, but i think it is a striker he'll be after. He has said as much recently. In case defoe or morelos are out injured or suspended. Or if he wants to play 2 up top.


2.) 12 Aug 2019 11:02:08
another striker i would think. if one gets injured we will be stuck.


3.) 12 Aug 2019 12:02:31
I would love to see Mebude, Mcpake or Rudden given a chance as third choice striker. Sadly for these young guys, I have to agree that this isn’t the year that they will be given their chance. Far too much at stake.

What concerns me is what sort of player will we be able to bring in that will be decent quality yet be content to be and aware they are third choice.

There is talk of us signing the big Swedish defender for over 4 million. Possibly nonsense paper talk.
I'm just really curious as to when the last time we spent stat sort of money in a player was? I have looked online, but can't seem to find any info on it.
I'm thinking it might be Jelovic. can't remember their being much since then. I think it have been a while since we had even spent that much when we bought him, I could be wrong but if anyone knows, I would love some info.

Dunc

1.) 10 Jul 2019 17:00:23
Assuming it is him, been reading that he is injury prone? Hope that is not the case as we do not need £4 million+ in the treatment room. The stats are very poor if they are to be believed so hopefully inaccurate.

Seems quite a unit though.


2.) 10 Jul 2019 19:42:06
Dunc when we resigne Fergie.


3.) 11 Jul 2019 00:29:59
I think we signed Jelavic for approx £4.5M. Most expensive in recent time must be Goldson. Think we spent around £3M on him, although not sure of the exact amount without googling it.

Just read an extremely honest and dignified interview with Lee Wallace about his last couple of years at out club. Said he was given a fair crack of the whip by Gerard and loved working under him.

I'm not sure if we will ever find out exactly what happened or what the problem was either. but he was a rangers captain and cleared by an independent tribunal.

The current board have done a lot of good but the way they have handled this whole thing leaves a horrible taste. Has a rangers captain ever been treated so poorly?

I'm sure he will be solid as ever down at Q. P. R and good luck to him.

Dunc

1.) 02 Jul 2019 16:20:54
Don't forget he was drawing over 10k a week while sitting on his backside.
Only mistake the board made was not getting shot of him at the same time as moaning miller.


2.) 02 Jul 2019 16:29:56
And dont forget slim Jim that he stayed at a time when everyone else jumped ship to make more money than that each week. Some folk have short memories.


3.) 02 Jul 2019 16:39:40
Blue, he stayed because nobody would give him the same wage that he was on.


4.) 02 Jul 2019 17:14:58
He stayed because he was a true Rangers captain and how could the board get rid of him slim? Are you saying he should have been sacked?
lee Wallace done nothing wrong at Rangers and I wish him all the best and hope he rips it up at QPR.


5.) 02 Jul 2019 18:03:16
I agree with you 100% slim Jim dont know why some fans think he stayed for the cause it was because he was getting paid a great wage and not guarantee of getting that elsewhere in my opinion.
He was vastly overrated IMO.


6.) 02 Jul 2019 18:19:49
Warburton won't see passed xmas with his signings. Fans will turn very quickly on him. Dom ball in 2day. Hopefully he comes in for dorrans or rossiter get them off wage bill.


7.) 02 Jul 2019 18:06:53
Slim jim, lee wallace stayed because he wanted to remain loyal as he grew to love our club. Not like the rats that kidded on they loved rangers.
Worth noting the full facts slim jim, before spouting pal. Lee wallace could have signed for nottingham forest for more money, but wanted to remain with us. He also knocked back ipswich town. So i for one wish waldo all the very best of luck with QPR!
He'll always be welcome back at ibrox.


8.) 02 Jul 2019 19:05:26
Steven Gerrard loyal, he stayed as he was very well paid.


9.) 02 Jul 2019 19:28:20
He stayed because his girlfriend was pregnant and didn't want to move down South. The only club who could continue to pay the same money in Scotland were Celtic and I hardly think he was going to move there just to play in the SPL. So spare me ' he loved Rangers'. Other factors were at play at the time. Now I'm not saying he didn't grow to love us - but he was not BORN a Ger.


10.) 02 Jul 2019 19:40:22
Cooper, you still spout single fish with your "facts"
Where are the facts he would get more money at forrest or ipswich. ?

What is fact is that he drew 10k + a week sitting on his thumb. He knew he was not going to be playing and could have left and went elsewhere. He stayed purely for the money, nothing to do with loyalty.


11.) 02 Jul 2019 20:08:50
It was common knowledge that he knocked back forest's approach to sign him. Honestly do you guys know anything about our club. Do you actually go to the 'brox to see the famous?


12.) 02 Jul 2019 20:39:46
Cooper, most of us don't make things up and get all uptight when you get called out.

You said for more money. Where are the facts/ proof. As usual you just open your gob.


13.) 02 Jul 2019 21:02:39
I wish Wallace all the best, no I'll will but to just say "common knowledge" isn't evidence of anything coop mate. Gossip goes round the stadium all the time, a quick Google search shows nothing about Wallace turning them down. In fact it was the club that rejected a few bids as they were too low.


14.) 02 Jul 2019 21:51:45
Might as well get my bit in, as much as he was a great servant to our club he took us to the cleaners! Quite happy took his 10k every week playing against guys earning a few hundred.
He was contracted though so not his fault, but he stayed for the money! Then did the same again when he didnt play for a year recently.


15.) 03 Jul 2019 04:30:43
He stayed because he loved the rangers he could’ve got more money elsewhere from div 3 when others where jumping ship for more money yous fudds are in a minority slagging him off. good luck to him.


16.) 03 Jul 2019 06:37:51
Here here Stewartyg65! The ones on here slagging waldo off, wouldn't know glasgow rangers from berwick rangers mate. The loudest shouters and continual negative criticisers are the ones who don't go to watch the famous. I see and hear this all time.


17.) 03 Jul 2019 06:59:46
Stewartyg, again he probably stayed in div3 because nobody else would have paid him over 10k a week. No point moving.

Not meaning to be all doom and gloom, but is anyone else a little concerned with the age of the players we are being linked with?

Obviously. if it meant stopping them getting 10, I would happily have a team filled with pensioners.

My only concern is that these guys will be keeping the younger, developing players out of the team for the rest of the season. If we don't make it this time around, how much will McAuley - 39-40, Davis 34-35 and Defoe 36-37 have to offer?

Just a little worried about the development younger players.

Dunc

1.) 04 Jan 2019 14:42:35
Ye add mcgregor 36 and McCauley 39 and 5 others in their 30,s think we will only get a few seasons out of most of these players the progrative is you’ve got a team that will push Celtic whatever the age then bring younger players on in next few seasons.


2.) 04 Jan 2019 14:49:02
McCauley contract runs out end of year, Davis still an excellent player still captain of the national team and Defoe is still very fit he looks after himself.


3.) 04 Jan 2019 14:54:36
Another way to look at it could be they will help to develop the youth within the club . Little tricks and turns they've learned, the intricacies that maybe we the average fan don't notice . How to conduct themselves proper regarding the media and how to look after themselves off the field.


4.) 04 Jan 2019 15:00:51
If we’re not going on about the sell on value of players or finances of club now age concern kicks in everyone will get plenty of game time as manager has shown let’s just enjoy these signings as said before SG needs two windows before being judged be happy 😆.


5.) 04 Jan 2019 15:17:19
I’m not concerned one bit!

The experience these guys bring to the group is invaluable!


6.) 04 Jan 2019 15:32:06
87. We need the experience, with experience we bring stability and calmness in my opinion with the players concerned. If they both do as much as mcgregor we would be delighted.


7.) 04 Jan 2019 15:36:48
Defoe will be great and a bit help to alfie assuming he stays
All about stopping 10 for now then worry about bringing youth through.


8.) 04 Jan 2019 16:30:12
we have a young core to our team already so a few experienced players could really help this team out i have no doubt Defoe an Davis will be good signings.
I also think we will be scouting around to find younger players especially a striker and will sign them in the summer when we have more funds available.


9.) 04 Jan 2019 19:01:25
The mankies wanted Defoe and we got him that’s good enough for
Me 👍🤪.


10.) 05 Jan 2019 03:20:50
Look at the influence Gary MacAllister had on Stevie G and his young teammates at the time at Liverpool and you will realise how important the blend can be. It’s all down to their legs and if the legs are still here at this level then they both will be tremendous additions. Boyd and Miller do ok at this level.

Not sure if this has been asked before, but anyone know if the club is giving Morelos English lessons?

He has been in Scotland for well over a year and still doesn't appear to have a word of English.

Every single one of the very few British lads that go abroad say learning the language is crucial.

Surely being able to communicate with his team mates will allow him to make the step up.

Dunc

1.) 09 Sep 2018 16:23:17
He's been having English lessons since day one, but, without trying to be unkind, I think he has great difficulty with it and is maybe not the brightest student. I'm sure it would help him no end if he was more able with his communication skills.


2.) 09 Sep 2018 18:05:52
never mind learning English---learn how to avoid missing open goals.


3.) 09 Sep 2018 22:58:06
hopefully someone teaches him in one of his lessons soon, so he can address fans like you deecee 😉.


4.) 10 Sep 2018 07:39:43
Just needs crayons for that 😂.

No padrew either. I remember him absolutely slating Scottish football on a couple of occasions whilst talking about Forster when he was Newcastle manager. That was a few years ago when the league was actually competitive as well.
Plus he only ever seems to get one good initial season from a team then fades and I think we now need someone long term,
Also his links to mike Ashley and I would recommend we stay well clear.
Much better options available.

I would say he does have the balls to drop players, look at Herrera, dalcio, Miller and kranjkar. All were first pics at the start of the season and all played poorly so were dropped.

The problem is that too many players aren't turning up and showing desire. If he dropped everyone who was playing without passion and desire, I don't think we would be able to put 11 players on the park.

It's an outside shout but I would love someone like Tim Sherwood. He currently has a directors role at Swindon. And I imagine he would have clauses that allow him to take up managers roles with little compensation. I am pretty uninspired by the names being mentioned so far. Whoever it ends up being, he needs a lot more backing in the transfer windows.

Warburton said himself that over the summer, with the exception of Scott Allan, he had gotten everyone we went for. We didn't spend a lot but he identified his targets within the budget he was promised and the club made it happen.

It makes no sense at all for him to have spent months planning for this market unless this is the sort of money he was promised. We are hardly going for superstars. He identified his top 2 targets this window and both are rather modest and so far we have missed out on one and are embarrassing ourself on the other.

Don't get me wrong, this is the most I have enjoyed being a rangers fan for many a year and it's possibly the amount of S***e we have been though over the last few years that has clouded my judgement. But the board needs to back the manager. Warburton has been a breath of fresh air since he has arrived and the thought of him leaving due to lack of backing fills me with dread.

Never good enough for Rangers, had already showed numerous times in his career that he wasn’t overly interested in putting the effort in.

I have no malice for the lad, we took a gamble and signed a dodgy player short term.

Whatever moron at the club thought it was a great idea to offer a useless player, with a terrible track record through out his career and only ever showed brief glimpses of ability a 3 year contract on decent wages is the real villain in the story.

Only a few weeks ago, people were actually debating if fresh investment from this man would be a good thing. I think even ex players were backing it.

The man is toxic. Every single thing this man does is for personal gain and greed. Just look at the absolutely disgusting way he treats his staf.

He was more than happy to bleed us dry when we were at our most vulnerable.

King has his many faults but once he finally rids the club of the toxic influence of that vulture Ashley, then there’s no excuses. we will be in a much brighter place.
