Told deals completed Lovelace and bell.


1.) 01 Jul 2022 17:06:21
Was posted by journos a few hours ago.

2.) 01 Jul 2022 17:18:46
Cool Tjrfc.

3.) 01 Jul 2022 17:21:33
Seen that just there on Instagram John.
Apparently the boy zac is some player.
I ok can see our under 18 team being better than most spfl teams n 12 months
Thoughts on that bold statement guys.

4.) 01 Jul 2022 17:53:28
Do you think Lovelace is being viewed as a first team squad player? He’s played 5 times for Millwall already and would most likely be making first team minutes this season had he stayed.

5.) 01 Jul 2022 18:05:38
I hope we don't go down the B team route with a player whose ready played with Millwall 1st team. Maybe a loan deal?

6.) 01 Jul 2022 18:09:51
If they progress as they clearly can then it looks like every one of these young lads that we have signed are not only better than anything in the other SPFL Teams, a number of them look to have the potential to be better than players currently in our squad! It will be great to see these young lads progress and join the likes of King, McCann and Lowry in the first eleven.

7.) 01 Jul 2022 18:18:40
Cooper11, I see Lions a fair bit and you are correct the boy would be in the 1st team squad this season if remained at the Den.

8.) 01 Jul 2022 18:29:13
Tjrfc didn't see it announced earlier, cheers John for the update its appreciated.

9.) 01 Jul 2022 19:20:29
Lovelace will be an under 18s player and will eventually be introduced into the b team and then the first team.

10.) 01 Jul 2022 19:20:41
also a boy from wimbeldon has signed for the u18s.

11.) 01 Jul 2022 20:26:44
Archie stevens, Alex.

12.) 01 Jul 2022 20:31:00
Sweep he is only 16 and played 4 times for millwall so I would assume more than likely he will be in b team for a year but who knows.



01 Jul 2022 13:07:57
I'm reliably informed we have made offer to Bazoer and Ozer
Before u ask Walter yes.


1.) 01 Jul 2022 13:31:58
Good to know a rw and cf and maybe a cm if aribo leaves and a would be happy to start the season.

2.) 01 Jul 2022 13:39:11
Bazoer would be a good one to get but surely that would signal the end of Helander and Katic.

3.) 01 Jul 2022 13:41:06
If Bazoer is anything like he is in my Rangers FM team. He'll be outstanding lol.

4.) 01 Jul 2022 13:41:14

5.) 01 Jul 2022 13:43:53
Good news J! We could certainly do with it!

Amazed of true we’ve let Kelly go! Surely sale value in that kid! Should have been sold last season!

If true of course.

6.) 01 Jul 2022 13:47:22
I've no seen this lad Bazoer before. What position does he play and is he any good?

7.) 01 Jul 2022 13:55:34
@Cmac1872 - ball playing centre half, can play holding midfield also. Good player.

8.) 01 Jul 2022 13:59:31
Left ch, better than anyone we have, I cannot see him coming to Scotland.

9.) 01 Jul 2022 14:00:07
Kelly has year left on deal cmac.

10.) 01 Jul 2022 14:03:56
Before you ask Walter ??.

11.) 01 Jul 2022 14:08:08
That is great news John, i did think he would get a bosmon. i will ask you this see on a contract deal could you put in a leaving fee instead of them going into the last year of deals and leaving for nothing? like stevieG said, i personally think you will be able to do that.

12.) 01 Jul 2022 14:28:27
Is that the same contact Walter knows John?

13.) 01 Jul 2022 14:42:03
Bazoer must have offers all over Europe, he's a full Dutch International is he not?

14.) 01 Jul 2022 14:50:36
Lol sweep you no it is?.

15.) 01 Jul 2022 14:50:37
He's been heavily linked with Marseille but I just read their manager has left - might help our case.

16.) 01 Jul 2022 14:50:56
Bazoer looks to have a good pedigree but from what I have read has had issues with discipline and being managed.
At Porto he got moved to the B team for this.
Hopefully has moved past this if we are going for him, potentially could be a good signing though.

17.) 01 Jul 2022 15:21:22
John you got me excited regarding an offer for Bazoer then kick me in the hoohaas by saying he won't come to Scotland. ouch.

18.) 01 Jul 2022 15:34:01
Bazoer is going to gladbach.

19.) 01 Jul 2022 15:55:16
Orgy it’s all about opinions, he is top player, same reason doehki turned us down, league rubbish.

20.) 01 Jul 2022 15:55:33
Don't you be nosey sweep1?.

21.) 01 Jul 2022 15:59:40
Walter Hahaha.

22.) 01 Jul 2022 16:12:24
I've been following the various rumour threads for a number of weeks, and as has been stated this is a rumour forum, so anything is possible.

I'll just be glad to see us sign anyone that strengthens not only the squad, but the starting 11. I'm confident something will happen, but at this stage feel that the team has stagnated over the last few transfer windows, while our main opposition has strengthened.

23.) 01 Jul 2022 16:12:52
Did someone say orgy? Giggety giggety!

24.) 01 Jul 2022 16:13:42
Bazoer was linked with BMG but that was a few weeks ago.
John is he available on a free transfer/ Bosman?

25.) 01 Jul 2022 16:14:52
Great news if rangers have submitted a bid for brazoer and fingers crossed he chooses us, more importantly I want to know if it’s the same “contact” that Walter knows then why is he receiving second hand information from John and not from the source direct?

26.) 01 Jul 2022 16:21:59
I’m wondering if johns contact is walters good freind and future rangers manager sir Kevin Thomson obe ??
Kidding coops mate just banter my freind ?.

27.) 01 Jul 2022 16:42:54
Lol Walter. Sweep, like others entitled to ask the question.

28.) 01 Jul 2022 17:19:49
Copland yes it’s a free transfer.

29.) 01 Jul 2022 17:21:07
Stevie g absolutely not Thompson, I don’t know him at all. He is coops mate.

30.) 01 Jul 2022 17:36:05
Nice to have a laugh on here and no offence taken at all John25,SteviG1,
sweep1 ??.

31.) 01 Jul 2022 18:15:59
Great news John and let's hope that these guys decide to come to Rangers and the opportunity to play European Football. It does frustrate me when I see players turn us down because our League is rubbish but then I can't really talk since in my profession, like a number of others I went for the more competitive and consequently the more lucrative Market.

32.) 01 Jul 2022 19:21:48
I don't see how Ozer would fit in tbh. We already have McGregor and McLaughlin and although McCrorie might depart on loan surely Ozer is better than third choice. Bazoer could be a good signing, left sided centre back and could be viewed as the heir to helander who is surely on his way out.

33.) 01 Jul 2022 22:16:50
Alex, Ozer is a step up rom McLaughlin in my opinion and has the potential to be our Number 1 Keeper. That said I still like McCrorie.

34.) 01 Jul 2022 22:22:00
Don’t shoot me down only passing on a rumour but i’ve heard McGregor only signed to get us larger European squad and will be 2nd/ 3rd choice only playing when required and will do his coaching badges this year.

35.) 01 Jul 2022 22:35:51
McGregor surely leaves end this season. Ozer beds in knows club ready to move in.
We could lose both my and mcroorie in next 23 months.

36.) 02 Jul 2022 14:26:56
That makes a lot of sense John, McGregor has been an exceptional keeper for us and not many keepers are still playing at his level at the age of 40. Mclaughlin isn't exactly a youngster either and I personally believe that Ozer would be a terrific signing.



29 Jun 2022 16:14:55
Hearing this afternoon Mccrorie two year extension offered.
Out on loan for a year with st Johnstone and Derby being mentioned.


1.) 29 Jun 2022 16:31:38
That would be a positive John. I like young McCrorie and personally would like him to stay. Much as I love McGregor I was not a fan of him being given a new contract and as you will know, I have reservations regarding McLaughlin being any more than a decent back up.

2.) 29 Jun 2022 16:35:07
If he can get a year under his belt playing at a good level, then this is a good move. I still see him as McGregor's replacement given time and experience.

3.) 29 jun 2022 16:54:55
great move that john, we don’t want to be chasing our young keepers away, ross could be anything in a year or so.

4.) 29 Jun 2022 16:58:16
I hope its true the boy deserves a chance to prove himself and imo going into a new season should be our no.2 behind Mclaughlan.

5.) 29 Jun 2022 16:58:46
That would be ideal scenario get games under his belt, hopefully come back and fight to be no1 choice GK for us.

6.) 29 Jun 2022 17:00:02
I agree tavs.

7.) 29 Jun 2022 17:28:36
Yeah we need to be aiming to get him in first team in next two years if he ? plays well out on loan.

8.) 29 Jun 2022 18:21:30
He didn't do so great at Livi, so if true this will be a make or break year for him. he's not a boy any more.

9.) 29 Jun 2022 18:35:16
John, this would be a great move for McCrorie, provide experience and allow to develop further and prove good enough to return as our number 1.

10.) 29 Jun 2022 18:38:46
Great news if young McCrorie signs an extension,
Makes sense that with McGregor staying for another year he goes on loan to get game time,
Antonio Colak looks a good proposition if we can get him over the line so fingers crossed.

11.) 29 Jun 2022 19:52:56
Like most of us on here, i'd like to see robbie mccrorie go on to replace greegs as our new no.1?He's a good young goalkeeper and imo has the ability to be our no.1 for years to come ?His path is very similar to greegs path to eventually become rangers no.1?.

12.) 29 Jun 2022 20:11:35
Makes sense to loan him out, would be a spl club tho.

13.) 29 Jun 2022 20:17:48
Great news that will be good for him, do you think it will be a youth as 3rd choice i think yes? i think it will be. just hope he says yes to the contract.

14.) 29 Jun 2022 20:21:08
Bar I agree make or break as far as we are concerned.

15.) 29 Jun 2022 20:40:26
There would be no point extending him then dumping him out on loan. If that's true, then we're wasting his time and ours. He needs to step up to our shirt or leave permanently. Not fair on him.

16.) 29 Jun 2022 21:43:46
Gvb not my info, too big a risk if McGregor and McLaughlin out at same time.

17.) 29 Jun 2022 21:56:32
Completely disagree with you rfcrb1872.

They clearly see him as a potential number 1 but obviously he’s still relatively untested at this level. Went on loan to Livi a couple seasons ago, did ok. but Rangers can’t afford to throw him in as number 1 without playing a series of games at a top level again imo. with the extension if it does happen, McCrorie plays every week and gains the valuable experience needed especially at 24 years old and Rangers evaluate how he does. It benefits both parties and certainly doesn’t waste anyones time. I think it’s a great move for both.

18.) 29 Jun 2022 22:27:14
Guarantee game time, would he be first pick in spfl Craig.

19.) 30 Jun 2022 11:15:37
The only thing I would add is that if we are not planning to bring in a keeper then it would be a risk to let McCrorie leave on a full season loan. It only take McGregor to pick up an injury and McLaughlin to let in a few goals, or vice versa, and we will be struggling for a keeper.

Personally I would much rather that McCrorie was given the gloves for the first Team.

20.) 30 Jun 2022 11:35:25
Berkshire what happens if McGregor McLaughlin both get C.V. b4 champions league or Celtic leaves us budinaukis or Cervantes
That’s why I believe ozer may be brought in. He then has chance to step up like mcrorie would when he returns.

21.) 30 Jun 2022 14:06:38
Been told at Johnstone are looking at a different keeper just now, mccrorie not an option at the moment.

22.) 30 Jun 2022 17:21:33
John, I would be happy if we sign Ozer, everything I read about him is that he is a quality keeper. I would be delighted if Ozer and McCrorie were the two keepers fighting it out for the first Team.
I do worry that it is one year too many for McGregor and I still believe that he is the better of him and McLaughlin who in reality hasn't really been tested that much either.
In terms of future keepers, I hear from family in Northern Ireland that the young lad we have signed from Glentoran is something special. Have you heard anything about him?



29 Jun 2022 13:04:12
Being told st mirren have again rejected our bid for Reid

Bailey Rice has agreed to join Rangers, this may not happen till October on his 16 birthday

The five players who joined yesterday and the lad pollard wages and accommodation are covered in the first year by money received from Wilson leaving. Hopefully we see lots off add ons for Rory and I wish the kid all the success in England.


1.) 29 Jun 2022 13:17:40
Good luck rory. u can always come back someday.

2.) 29 jun 2022 13:23:59
me too, not a rangers fan so he moves on and we look towards a bigger and better future, one of the boys here mentioned rice a few days ago, and i have been told great things about this boy from saints from an old pal who still does community work for them.

3.) 29 Jun 2022 13:28:16
Lose one prospect to bring in half a dozen. Happy with that! Improves the odds of someone making it ?.

4.) 29 Jun 2022 13:58:04
Yes John25,i have good solid info on bailey rice has chosen to sign for rangers over celtic ?I know someone very close to bailey's dad barry rice and was told young bailey went into speak to rangers at the tail end of last week. He then at the weekend there spoke to celtic and although celtic moneywise i'm told was much more than rangers offer,
young bailey still chose to go to rangers his boyhood idols ???.

5.) 29 Jun 2022 14:58:48
John we've signed a number of young players yesterday and today linked with more, I've never heard of any of them, do you know anything about them?

6.) 29 Jun 2022 15:52:13
Pollard excellent
Cooper excellent

Bailey massive future
Same re Lovelace.

Willox and lads from England don’t know them.

7.) 29 Jun 2022 15:57:48
From what I gather these look to be pro contracts meaning we shouldn’t lose on development arrangement.

I know everyone seems to be getting impatient with the lack of new faces for the first team but both sides of this need to work.

We need the quality in the youth team so that next time we have a Kent or a Morelos contract expiring we can sell and replace from youth team.

8.) 29 Jun 2022 16:17:24
Thanks john, hopefully they'll be big names for us in the future.

9.) 29 Jun 2022 16:38:12
Great news John, we certainly appear to be bringing in some real quality on top of the excellent youngsters already on our books. This all looks excellent for the future. I guess my question is, when do you reckon that we will see some move up to the first Team Squad. I know that young Lowry and King are already there and hopefully McCann as well, I am just looking at how we bridge what might be two or three years where we d not imo, have the quality with players recruited over the past two or three transfer windows that were presumably signed as first Team Players.

10.) 29 jun 2022 17:07:10
bee, it’s the same every year, someone on here was having palpitations at this time last year, it’s a strange thing but some people can’t handle any transfer window, they think we should be announcing a new player evrey day, last year was really quite scary, one guy was on every hour to tell us he thought we were going in administration because we hadn’t bought anyone, it was about june 26th,

there’s 60 odd days to go yet.

11.) 29 Jun 2022 21:51:58
Berkshire mcann is ready, McKinnon a year max.
Devine will provide cover as will yfeko and mb mcausland.



27 Jun 2022 11:43:39
Stories circulating in media we r to sing 16 year old Cameron bell Scottish lad at Everton, appears to be a highly rated defender who is in the Scotland set up.


1.) 27 Jun 2022 13:04:29
Doing some good business across the youth set up.

I know Bell is very highly rated within the Scottish set up, so hopefully we get it over the line.

2.) 27 Jun 2022 13:11:01
Think this one is going to happen.

3.) 27 Jun 2022 13:27:00
Who I think it’s a done deal, according to my source.

4.) 27 Jun 2022 15:35:52
Excellent prospect John, great signing if get over the line.

5.) 27 Jun 2022 16:58:02
Don’t know much re him bankie.

6.) 27 Jun 2022 17:50:54
Lennon miller just signed pro contract with mwell and I have seen this lad on a few occasions this boy could be a good one his father is Lee miller who use to play as striker for a few clubs.

7.) 27 Jun 2022 18:03:40
Yeah young Lennon is exceptional talent could be one to keep an eye on; check his goal on scotland debut v England won goal of year.

8.) 27 Jun 2022 18:36:51
Lennon miller has a big future imo.

9.) 27 Jun 2022 21:35:49
I'm told by folks in Liverpool that Bell will sign for Rangers. I get the feeling from what I am being told that it is a 'done deal'.

Yeah definitely got a big future, unfortunately I think he may be out our price range .

2.) 02 Jul 2022 13:12:51
Must be more than just him I that Isreal under 19s if they got to the finals. Might be a few gems.



01 Jul 2022 20:24:27
Rangers sign Archie stevens 16 year old from Wimbledon.


1.) 01 Jul 2022 22:18:47
I think we are going to need a C team at this rate John. The B team is going to be some standard this season with all these young talented lads we are bringing in and long may this trend continue.

2.) 01 Jul 2022 22:46:26
Three cheers these signings will operate between academy and bteam.
Also b team will lose a number on loan. Sold. Or in first team squad.
We have also released a few kids.

3.) 01 Jul 2022 23:29:35
& will any of these numerous signings win us the League or qualify for CL
Only asking?

4.) 01 Jul 2022 23:49:24
Another British player out of Wimbledon before the second week.

5.) 02 Jul 2022 00:56:18
Well that's the plan Bar72 so hopefully yes. Why else would we be bringing them in?

6.) 02 Jul 2022 08:05:44
Not all these 16 year olds will go straight into B team I don’t think not right away anyway.

7.) 02 Jul 2022 09:57:19
Correct storm, under 18s very light in numbers just now.



30 Jun 2022 16:26:37
Lennon signs Barker on two year deal lol.


1.) 30 Jun 2022 16:45:25
Does he actually ever play or just a good guy to have around? i'm sure i read 16 games in 3 years at Rangers.

2.) 30 Jun 2022 16:47:57
John, I actually think that’s probably a good piece of business by Lennon.

3.) 30 Jun 2022 17:10:35
Good luck to him over there. The boy obviously has talent and speed but he just couldn't use both at the same time. He will also be close to Turkey and he nip over and get himself a cheap hair transplant.

4.) 30 Jun 2022 17:23:00
Strange though it might seem, I reckon that he will do well in that League.

5.) 30 jun 2022 17:51:17
i agree bb, cheers for the chuckle, cheers.

6.) 30 Jun 2022 18:13:51
Barkers alright not great but alright. I wish him all the best for the future. Foilcle fuel beats transplants 3 Cheers, only problem is hairy feet as well.

7.) 30 Jun 2022 19:21:05
Just seen this John after posting same. He’ll probably do not bad in a poor league but I never rated him at Hibs never mind when he came to us, hold no bad feelings towards an ex player but just never seen anything from him…. I think maybe one game he turned it on at ibrox but can’t remember whk against. Might have been Europe or the game before a euro tie.

8.) 30 Jun 2022 19:33:40
Btw a Former Gers coach told me he was class in training used to run rings round everyone at times just never transferred to games.

9.) 30 Jun 2022 20:20:45
Good to see you back posting again Tom12. I love my hairy feet Parlane because I've got more hair on my pinky toe than my skull. i'm looking forward to see if Kemar Roofe turns up for training looking like Rudd Gullit with his new implanted wig.



29 Jun 2022 13:57:42
Great news re Cole McKinnon three year deal, now get him out on loan championship thistle.


1.) 29 Jun 2022 14:31:47
Yes terrific news, read some really good reviews regarding him. How do you rate him John?

2.) 29 Jun 2022 15:02:55
He is a fantastic footballer and has the ability to go all the way.
Just behind mcann imo.

Go for my understanding is his health is very poor, as said before we don’t know what’s happening in his life, or anyone else’s.

My advice for what it’s worth cut through the so called anger and read the post main point, imo he brings loads to the site.
Me and him have had odd spat, but I respect him and love chatting with him
