Hearing we are trying to strike a deal for Nisbet. Cash plus Barker being offered.


1.) 31 Aug 2021 20:40:22
Can't see it mate. They want 5m.

2.) 31 Aug 2021 20:43:44
Would be well happy with that.

3.) 31 Aug 2021 20:47:47
Absolute nonsense.

4.) 31 Aug 2021 20:48:27
Definitely think something could happen to fill in for itten.

5.) 31 Aug 2021 20:49:41
If Hibs were to take Barker in part exchange then it would knock around 30 quid off the asking price.

6.) 31 Aug 2021 20:50:38
Fingers crossed.

7.) 31 Aug 2021 21:01:56
Nonsense rangers not signing anyone cause they never made the CL.

8.) 31 Aug 2021 21:04:25
Can’t see it happening.

9.) 31 Aug 2021 21:11:54
Yes i'm hearing this story about kevin nisbet possibly coming to us but i seriously doubt at, as hibs quoted swansea £5million for nisbet this afternoon and they won't budge on that fee! We won't/ can't pay that 😞 John25,have you heard anything of us having any interest in signing kevin nisbet before the window closes tonight mate 🤔.

10.) 31 Aug 2021 21:33:44
Typical rangers nothing to excite us with.

11.) 31 Aug 2021 21:44:49
Fruit bear u saw that on that youtube channel can mind whos channel it is but its 3 gers fans on it n they said hibs want 5mill but the gers fans laughed n said either 2mill or 3mill and throw in barker n they all laughed that's were this story started.

12.) 31 Aug 2021 21:46:49
We couldn't give Barker away in a lucky bag just now.

13.) 31 Aug 2021 21:47:51
Tbh I don’t see Hibs selling him to us now so late in the day. They won’t have the time to replace him. Only passing on what I heard that a bid offered.

Three cheers, proper laughed at that comment mate lol.

14.) 31 Aug 2021 21:59:33
DSGERS I heard it from someone who’s normally pretty good with info. Only passing on what I heard. Not saying I think it will happen, my initial reaction to him when he told me was ‘no chance we are paying that kind of money’ but he says there’s some mileage in the interest from Rangers.

15.) 31 Aug 2021 21:59:47
As i said earlier how did we not sign this young man from Dunfermline for a few hundred grand. You buy him and loan him to league above then review. Incredible that Celtic have over fed themselves with transfer fees and we are eating out the bins. Someone is not doing their job if we need to sell players.

16.) 31 Aug 2021 22:02:09
Think we need someone in cz it only takes a suspension n an injury then we are short up top. hopefule atleast 1 could be brought in.

17.) 31 Aug 2021 22:17:29
Jking because he was deemed nowhere near good enough for us back then, simple really mate.

18.) 31 Aug 2021 22:22:31
Not worried about team. Worried about how we are getting run and operated. Every team sells players but we seem to give them away. Trust Gerrard and staff just not anyone above. Act like a big club Rangers.

19.) 31 Aug 2021 22:38:39
Jking what is the point of saying why didn’t we sign him back then We didn’t do it’s a pointless statement to make.

20.) 31 Aug 2021 22:43:15
Don’t know how you can worried about how we are getting run? The guys running the club are putting money out their own pockets to make sure we don’t need to flog our stars on the cheap. Bids rebuffed for Morelos, Kent, Patterson. All because they didn’t meet our valuation. Yes, Rangers have stated we want to implement a strategy to develop and then sell players to generate income, but only if the valuations are met. If they are not met, they won’t be sold on the cheap.

Said it yesterday if we don’t bring anyone in but keep hold of all our best players then that’s a win for us and a big statement from the board for covering the money lost from failing to get into champs league.

21.) 31 Aug 2021 23:01:47
We (Rangers) won’t sign anyone this window. Been a spectator of the page for a while and I know it’s based on rumours and the occasional BS lol. But I like it lol it keeps me entertained along with others lol 56 here we come.

22.) 31 Aug 2021 23:32:39
I see McCann rumoured to be signing for Preston for £1m That would have been a worthwhile punt for us. Good young player.

23.) 01 Sep 2021 06:38:13
BB just shy of 2 million for the kid.

24.) 01 Sep 2021 09:04:29
One million for mcannn. We were allegedly being quoted in excess 3 million
There was no move for Nisbet.
A very good window imo. Barisic Paterson staying
Morelos kent Kelly staying

Still need to move Barker next week or two.



02 Nov 2020 09:40:16
Hearing that a couple of our first team players been issued with C.V. fines while at a house party last night. No names given, only passing on what I've been told by a Rangers supporter with some knowledge of the incident. Hoping it's not the case, stupidity from those involved if true.


1.) 02 Nov 2020 11:35:45
Heard Jones is one of them that's him out the club for good too many chances.

2.) 02 Nov 2020 11:42:06
Heard it’s Jordan Jones and big Edmundson.

3.) 02 Nov 2020 11:49:13
Two of them should be dismissed. We can’t have anything disrupt our club this year. If it’s grounds for sacking then they should go. Make an example of them.

4.) 02 Nov 2020 12:20:22
Get where you’re coming from c of Ibrox but we can’t just dismiss a couple million quid. Maybe jones can go by mutual consent in January but Edmundson is worth what £2m? Can’t sack 1 without the other and can’t sign a replacement for Edmundson TIL January so perhaps he will survive it with jones moving on in jan for nominal fee or a free. Get you’re point though mate 👍🏻.

5.) 02 Nov 2020 12:36:41
I gerrard sell them in January get some money in.

6.) 02 Nov 2020 13:45:36
Pity mate the fridge had a lot of potential I really liked look of him also backed up the “rangers fan as a kid” Patter with hard evidence of photographs. Really could’ve been a good player for us in the next couple of seasons. His problem now is how strong we are in defence with the 4 atm plus Katic to come back then young mayo and king behind them. It’s not going to be easy for him to come back from this.



30 Jan 2020 10:53:22
Bhardwaj has reported that Miller is resigning on a deal to end of the season. Deary me Rangers, we must be rooked.


1.) 30 Jan 2020 11:10:50
FruitBear, we are rooked or did you miss the AGM?

2.) 30 Jan 2020 11:14:18
tweet was from 2014

calm doon!

3.) 30 Jan 2020 11:24:47
OMG read things properly before you post, there is no way Miller will be back, we ll put Mebude in before that.

4.) 30 Jan 2020 11:29:42
I would like to see Grant Murray from Brighton on loan.

5.) 30 Jan 2020 11:44:02
Couily I’ll try and read things properly from now on lol! No as bad as some of the rubbish folk blatantly make up, Foden, Lallana, Abraham lol.

6.) 30 Jan 2020 12:59:43
Agreed that not reading something properly is no where near as bad as ridiculous posts, our driver to the game last night suggested we get. wait for it. Jamie Vardy on loan but thinks the only problem is Brendan would nt let him come! I thought he was joking but he kept on saying it. had to ridicule him repeatedly until he stopped saying it.

7.) 30 Jan 2020 13:22:03
Rhodes can't play up front on his own so he wo 't fit the system. Don't be surprised if a bid goes in for Naismith or Cosgrove.

8.) 30 Jan 2020 13:40:57
Hagi the son of the legend currently at Genk will come in, seen as a creative player. Plus contacted 2 forwards about the possibility of short term deal or loan.

9.) 30 Jan 2020 14:02:22
We should go for Will Grigg not wanted at Sunderland no more.

10.) 30 Jan 2020 14:04:03
We should go for Will Grigg not wanted at sunderland.

11.) 30 Jan 2020 14:24:27
I will be surprised thank you.

12.) 30 Jan 2020 18:15:58
Why would we sign a player from league 1 that can't gets game for his club. Will Grigg has a good song and that's all.

13.) 30 Jan 2020 20:19:38
Why don’t we just bite the bullet and sign Edward for the 3 million the smellies want? Ok he wouldn’t get a game as he would be third choice but it’s a good back up . and I am sure he loves the Gers.



26 Jan 2020 10:06:46
Seen a few rumours doing the rounds this morning that Windass might be coming back on loan. It really sure I'd believe it as Gerrard wasn't really keen on him 1st time round.


1.) 26 Jan 2020 10:26:47
He is the opposite of what Gerrard wants from players. Billy big time attitude, poor work rate and hides in games. If we loan back a guy that can't get in the Wigan team then we are done for.

2.) 26 Jan 2020 11:53:16
Nonsense imo, read a report that we were ‘right to cash in at what we did and when we did’ as his value ain’t quite what it was in spite of him maturing.

Windass is a step backwards, a player in there somewhere, but he’s not Rangers class or anything like what we need, in fact he’s much in Th e category at the stuff we’ve been offloading.

3.) 26 Jan 2020 12:15:27
Snell totally agree, can’t see it being true.

4.) 26 Jan 2020 12:55:22
He can score from midfield though!

5.) 26 Jan 2020 13:30:52
more click bait.

6.) 26 Jan 2020 14:23:46
He was absolute garbage, had the least amount of heart of any player I’ve ever seen. Was delighted he left and will be both amazed and raging if he comes back.

7.) 26 Jan 2020 14:52:32
Garbage is a bit harsh! He did show some potential, but you need to do it every week playing for Gers🇬🇧.

8.) 26 Jan 2020 17:31:50
I would take windass back as after watching todays first half we will be in trouble if we do not have morelos and jermain as we do not have any cover for striker we need on before jan closes.

9.) 26 Jan 2020 18:04:12
Defo need a striker in.

10.) 28 Jan 2020 17:14:30
It is windass who is pushing for the move back to rangers. Wigan still owe money to rangers.



02 Sep 2019 23:22:11
Hearing Kent and konate will both be announced at midnight. Bold if true.


1.) 03 Sep 2019 00:14:12
Ryan kent has been announced dead on midnight, no news of any other signing. Absolutely delighted with the signing of ryan kent, on a permanent 4 year deal. Mikael lustig will also be over the moon that he's now away from them, with kent's return to rangers now confirmed. 😂.

2.) 03 Sep 2019 06:03:32
Sure he was over the moon with his Treble that he left with 😂.

3.) 03 Sep 2019 08:21:23
Raman Bhardwaj has tweeted that Kent and Konate were both coming but just before Kent was announced the Konate tweets were deleted. Maybe try ed but failed or his info was rubbish.

Delighted we got Kent.

4.) 03 Sep 2019 12:11:31
Mate it was a fake account that said about konate although I wish it was true. "stvranan" it was.

30 Jun 2022 18:56:01
Getting beyond sick of all the negativity in regards to Rangers just now. Every media story relating to our current players is how they want to leave or are about to leave, for low end fees.

Now the rags are running a story on how Colak (a guy we've no even signed yet) is more than replaceable for PAOK and they'd be well advised to punt him ??

Fans moaning about the lack of signings, claiming the board are not backing GVB. How do you know that? For one, it's still early in the window, lots of time to get deals done.

Perhaps GVB has told the board he is more than happy with the majority of what he's got? I mean, this is a team that got to Europa League final, no like it needs major surgery, just a few quality additions and these type of players take time to identify and get over the line. Nobody really knows from the outside.

Judge the window when it's over. In an ideal world new players should be onboard when we head to our summer training camp in Portugal. So until they go, i'm not going to moan if players are not signed up.

As far as I'm concerned we have the basis of a good team. The priority should be securing the players we have on longer contracts. If they do we don't need to make wholesale changes, if they won't sign then you need to shift them on and re-invest.

I'm sure that's what the club will be doing in the background.

Everyone wants to see new signings over the summer but a bit of patience should be applied. Not saying people can't be disappointed at the lack of new faces as things stand but totally slaughtering the club when there is still plenty time left is daft.

Keep the faith.


1.) 30 Jun 2022 19:35:18
We have secured some players on longer contracts already Fruit - MacGregor, Goldson, Davis and Arfield. Is this the priority you speak of?

2.) 30 Jun 2022 19:46:10
Well said @fruitbear.

3.) 30 Jun 2022 20:10:58
orygbmb, was more in reference to the ones like Morelos, Aribo and Kent. The ones with a year left. If they won't commit to new deals we should try move them on so we don't lose them for nothing.

4.) 30 Jun 2022 20:13:00
That's far to sensible a post for many fruitbear.

5.) 30 Jun 2022 20:37:55
Fruit bear yeah it’s a team that got to the europa cup final it’s also a team that lost the league to Celtic it works both ways mate.

6.) 30 Jun 2022 20:53:43
Storm, yes that is a valid point. But it’s still not a team that’s needs wholesale changes. A few quality players added to an already good squad would see us ok.

7.) 30 Jun 2022 21:40:42
With you fruit bear … also a team that beat Celtic to win the Scottish cup ?.

8.) 30 Jun 2022 21:43:01
I agree with Fruitbear, it really is so important that we get Aribo, Morelos and Kent signed on new contracts or we have to move them on and objectively use the funds to replace them. All three would have been a greater priority for me than both McGregor or Davis.

9.) 30 Jun 2022 21:49:24
Apologies Fruit me just being pedantic and showing my frustration with extended deals given to a certain few when we could use the finances more constructively, you have made a valid point although Storm has also made a good point regarding the league, we need younger blood in the squad to take us throughout the long season, we do seem to be building very well for the future with the young lads being brought into our club but we need young first team players who are ready for the 1st team now. ( I do appreciate we are still early into the transfer market and my fingers, toes and eyes are crossed for some good news in the near future ) . my opinion.

10.) 30 Jun 2022 22:11:48
Mols I would rather lost both cups every year if it means winning the league the cup is knockout cup the league is over 38 games big difference.

11.) 30 Jun 2022 22:13:20
I thought it was hearts we beat to win the cup as it was Celtic we beat to get to the final ?.



22 Jun 2022 12:29:25
Been mentioned a lot on here about older players getting new 1 year deals and how we are not progressing. People seem to assume that we won't be bringing in new quality that we need just because we have retained some of our longer servants.

Just wanted to throw it out there about the fact the World cup takes place in mid season this year, the fixture pile up is going to be much more of a burden than ever before.

Perhaps the plan is to still strengthen the 1st team with new quality but given we may need a larger squad than what's normally expected we've retained the likes of Davis, McGregor and Arfield to fill in when required.

It's possible they wouldn't have been retained had this World cup not been mid season, i think its a scenario that most of us have overlooked.


1.) 22 Jun 2022 12:56:12
Good post fruit bear. I think this is where young lads have a role to play.
I’m told already we have i'd players 20-22 who would replace Davis Arfield McGregor Defoe
If this is the case good. Couple off them still to be signed. Ie goalkeeper and midfielder.

2.) 22 Jun 2022 14:35:40
John i fully agree, we'll only know how the club are planning to move the squad forward by introducing younger players as the season plays out. You could say, right Alex Lowry is the long term replacement for Arfield or young McCann is the long term replacement for Davis, but when you put any new first team players in, whether they be youngster or new signings, there is always an element of risk (Look at Lundstram first 6 months) . I like the idea of bringing in the new guard whilst the old is still there, gives you a fall back to a tried and tested player should any of the new ones struggle to adjust or drop in form etc.

3.) 22 Jun 2022 16:10:24
John25 hopefully we sign a RW and another striker.
The young players like Lowry, McCann, and King will gradually be integrated into the first team squad but we also need players who are currently ready to play in the first team and make a difference in key positions.

4.) 22 Jun 2022 17:03:15
100% correct Copland 1.

Wilson said when he first came in we would not spend millions on incoming players if we had a reserve player who would be ready in two years.
He said it would be careful managed, mb we’re seeing that with the one year deals.

5.) 22 Jun 2022 23:18:15
That would certainly seem to be the case with both McCann and Lowry who I assume could easily replace Davis and Arfield and that being the case it would make sense for Arfield and Davis to prioritise mentoring these guys over the next 12 months.
Would you say that we had any natural successors to Morelos and Roofe among our young players. I know that Weston has been scoring goals but would you see him as an option.
From what I understand our young goalkeepers are much younger so assuming that we lose MCrorie we might actually need to sign two keeper? It is a worry for me that McGregor looks to be nearing the end of his career and as you probably know I do worry that McLaughlin isn't any more than a backup keeper, (and he isn't getting any younger) .

6.) 23 Jun 2022 10:18:11
Berkshire, in th main we have two reserve strikers.
Weston, great goal scorer, brave as a lion, I’d get this kid out to championship asap. Probably partick

Alegria, excellent player. Scored very well in b team, most have written him off. Not Mac all or rangers.
I’d get him starting every week for b team then a loan in December…st mirren and killie both interested.
Keira Wright I think 23. Shown little
Cervantes 19. Big big future
Hogarth I really like 18, was on bench when Robbie played his games
Budanuakus young 18 rated

So if mcrorie leaves we need a season pro, that’s why I actually like idea off Clark, I think ozer will join.



03 May 2022 11:09:13
Absolutely devastated to hear of Jimmy Bell passing this morning. A huge part of the fabric of our club, Jimmy installed many great traditions within the 1st team dressing room. He may never have played for Rangers but Rangers was his life and he lived his dream for 41 years.

Rest in peace Jimmy. A proper club legend.




17 Apr 2022 21:15:43
Not long back from Hampden. What a day!

Thought we lacked a bit of quality in the final 3rd today but made up for it with unbelievable effort. Pressing, turning over possession, working hard for the team and a phenomenal amount of character.

Celtic were not at the races but that's in large down to Rangers smothering them. We didn't let them play.

This kind of performance is the type we love the most in old firms but to do it just a couple of days after 120 minutes on Thursday is terrific!

This team sometimes frustrates me and sometimes isn't clinical enough but if they show the effort like that win, lose or draw, I'll never criticise them!



1.) 17 Apr 2022 21:43:55
Agree fruitbear
If they leave it outthere then I've no complaint. 240 minutes of non stop effort in 3 days. That'll do for me my man.

2.) 18 Apr 2022 05:42:20
Where has that fight in the team being since Jan Apart from Europe and today If we had that we would be still going for a treble.

3.) 18 Apr 2022 11:28:38
Storm factually we can still win a treble? Sundays game for them will be interesting.



05 Apr 2022 17:03:42
Seen that's Alfredo out for the rest of the season. Disaster.


1.) 05 Apr 2022 17:12:11
Seen that FruitBear and i hope to god i'm wrong but i firmly believe we won't see alfredo morelos in a rangers shirt again ☹️I don't know what gio will be able to come up with upfront against celtic in the scottish cup semi final as buff is a massive loss ☹️.

2.) 05 Apr 2022 17:12:15
See his injury was sustained while on international duty.

3.) 05 Apr 2022 17:15:15
We are fecked big time.

4.) 05 Apr 2022 17:22:50
Could have played his last game i think. let's hope he signs a new deal but really can't see it.

5.) 05 Apr 2022 17:44:35
It’s life, just need to get on with it.

6.) 05 Apr 2022 17:49:14
He has been carrying the injury for last 4 games at least every game last 20 mins he was feeling his thigh.

7.) 05 Apr 2022 17:50:55
Who would you play up front against celtic in the semi final fellow bears 🤔.

8.) 05 Apr 2022 17:56:15
Had it b4 he left barrow. Should never have played at dundee.

9.) 05 Apr 2022 17:59:55
We are where we are John it’s easy to say “just need to get on with it “ but who would you play up front we tried Roofe on Sunday playing him as if he was Alphie high ball into the box it just didn’t work so do we change the way we play and go two up I fear our lack of investment and over reliance of Alphie will come back to bite us.

10.) 05 Apr 2022 18:10:58
Gio is to blame for playing him at Dundee as he was clearly injured after the Belgrade game.

11.) 05 Apr 2022 18:38:42
Is this as bad as it's become? Cacking our pants because one player is injured. Have we now become a team that relies one a single player being fit? If so we are well and truly effed.
Roofe is not Alfie but he knows what he's doing. Adapt to his strengths as sweep said above and maybe we'll get the best out of him.

12.) 05 Apr 2022 18:58:43
This idea that they have said he picked it up on International duty is nonsense. Red Star at home he was stretching his leg out and hobbling after about 60 mins and Gio left him on, in a game we were 3-0 up already! He then played him the Sunday against Dundee and again in the away leg to Red Star. I feel this injury is down to poor management.

He may still have needed the surgery I suppose but surely by playing him in those games that’s made it worse.

We surely must revert to the 3-5-2 now. Kent up alongside either Roofe or Sakala depending on who we are playing. Neither Roofe or Sakala can play the lone striker role but with 2 up top and the full backs pushing on it might actually suit us.

Kent and Sakala away to Braga might be a better option than Roofe as they will play a high line, we will be sitting deep and trying to counter and those 2 with their pace will offer a good threat in behind.

Just don’t feel you can afford a penalty box player like Roofe away in a European quarter final. Need 10 outfield players willing to press and put a shift in which isn’t what he is about.

13.) 05 Apr 2022 20:20:30
Get Lowry into the side and in a very forward position, attacking from edge of the box, it’s Aribo and Kent who have let us down badly, and often, let Lowry loose on them at Hampden with Lundstrum and jack behind him, and allow roofe a roving role across the line.

14.) 05 Apr 2022 20:44:10
I wonder if it’s to do with insurance, blame Columbia.

15.) 05 Apr 2022 20:47:19
Sakala has enough pace and I try him with Kent at least they will find space in behind and both can get down the lines we need Ramsay to play supporting role.

16.) 05 Apr 2022 21:02:58
3-5-2 might be an option or 4-4-2.
Leave it up to GVB but 3-5-2 might leave us a bit open at the back.

17.) 06 Apr 2022 00:42:08
Think you are probably right about the insurance John!

Copland I’d prob go with similar as Lundstram can go between midfield and defence so could be back 4 or 3, Only change i'd make is Ramsey for Aribo. He needs to sit out for a few games. Been terrible.

18.) 06 Apr 2022 01:33:34
Copland how can Aribo be in your side?

They've spent nearly £15m on 2 players that were already there last year. Obviously they are good players and its good for them to keep them but that doesn't make them stronger than they already were.

They've upgraded a left back and a back up goalie, hardly anything to panic about.

Storm, yes that is a valid point. But it’s still not a team that’s needs wholesale changes. A few quality players added to an already good squad would see us ok.

orygbmb, was more in reference to the ones like Morelos, Aribo and Kent. The ones with a year left. If they won't commit to new deals we should try move them on so we don't lose them for nothing.

Used to be one called the highlander bar, think its called The Bonnie Scot now. Its right in amongst the shopping centre.

Few years ago we stayed in Arguineguin and got a taxi along to it to watch the Europa league qualfier, told taxi driver "Drop us off at the Rangers pub, going to watch the football"

Guy drops me off right outside a Celtic pub round the corner to massive heckling as i jump out with my Rangers top on lol.

Boyle has one attribute that is of a high level and that’s pace, rarely works for us when most teams sit in deep against us. I don’t think Boyle offers anything more than what Sakala brings.

He’s also a blatant cheat when it comes to diving, something which infuriates me no end and with VAR coming into play, you’ll no see players getting away with that as much.
