I see another 1 million shares purchased in Rangers today ( 3 seep rate tranches)

Anyone know who is buyingThis totals 2.5 Million shares in the last week with 6 separate transactions.


1.) 28 Sep 2016 22:01:07
Or who is selling? What price are they changing hands at?

2.) 28 Sep 2016 22:08:44
27.5p per share which is the apparent going rate.

Yep who is selling it seems difficult to find this information out.

3.) 28 Sep 2016 22:11:05
Gonna say this once and once only and i'm pretty sure most gers would agree, for the love of god speed king michael o'halloran better start this week i'm sick and fed up with warburton not playin the best from the start and instead pickin all the brown noses or teachers pet seriously its going to hit the fan but i'm losin faith n confidence in him.

4.) 28 Sep 2016 22:28:20
Dont think MOH has done much to warrant a start when he's came on tbh.

5.) 28 Sep 2016 22:32:24
I don't agree with you. He fails to look up when he's on the ball and ends up running into trouble because takes too many touches before releasing it although that's if he hasn't already ran into a dead end. You need more than just pace and he hasn't got it.

6.) 28 Sep 2016 22:33:25
Barry it's all good having speed, but if yir final ball is kak and you couldn't score in a barrel of FANNIES then why should MOH start? he needs to show more desire when he's on the park, he doesn't do enough for me.

7.) 28 Sep 2016 23:26:50
Once dodoo, Rossiter, Windass come in, no fear of Europe place, we just have to settle, remember where we have come and to get into Europe first time asking is good going, some people are expecting too much, too soon, but we will be back .
Don't know about you guys but MW must be saying what the hell am I into here but hopefully DW has explained, how impatient some of our fans can be .
Ashley holding us back, but we will BE Back!

8.) 29 Sep 2016 02:13:41
expecting too much too soon and yer sheepin about europe?

am happy to stay up here get rid of the deadwood and be serious contenders over next 3 years.

lets keep expectations quiet, stop pressuring players who have never played at this level before. we will get there.

9.) 29 Sep 2016 09:20:32
Have to admit o'hall has not greatly impressed me either.

No delivery most of the times rarely crosses and wins throw in/ corners or gives away possession, most of the time.

I think if we soaked up possession and hit on the break he would be in the team because of his speed but when there are 10 men defending with limited space to run he is up against it and doesn't have enough star quality. In my opinion.

10.) 29 Sep 2016 10:51:04
aslong as we play this system that were using just now MOH is useless to us there's no point bein lightning fast if we pass across 18yd box til we find an opening it means the one good attribute he has is pointless.

11.) 29 Sep 2016 10:58:46
A would like to see moh get a start aswel but as part of 2 up front and not out wide we did the same with lovenkrands not comparing them obviously but he got played out wide and how many times did he score with a run through the middle with his pace plus if moh runs at the 2 centre backs he would prob win a lot of penaltys with his pace and over the years we've had great success with a strong good in the air striker ie garner and a quick striker ie moh.

12.) 29 Sep 2016 11:21:52
If MOH and Garner was the 2 up front we'd be relegated by christmas.

13.) 29 Sep 2016 13:41:37
bluedie garner is still to bed into the team I am still hopefull he will come good but hasn't really shown anything yet .
until he does i'd still go 2 up front but i'd have waggy and miller they two would score for fun with McKay, holt/ halliday, windass/ rossiter and forrester behind them.

we have soo many talented midfield players that a 4-3-3 is a waste of our talented young players time, i'd be happy with 4-4-2 or 4-5-1 so that they can all get a game withiout taking people out then putting them back in having no consistency.

14.) 29 Sep 2016 15:40:04
Moh was outstanding against QOS and then was back to the bench v the Dons. needs a run of games. mackay has been awful this season as has lee wallace. we're going back the way.6 months ago we beat 90% of that celtic side from last night. we're going backwards.

15.) 29 Sep 2016 16:23:12
Got to laugh it this sum gers fans have short memorys fact this is the same moh who single handidly tore us apart on our home turf because of tht pace and power tht he posseses, the same guy who ran SPL defences apart week in week out and was there top man at st johnstone now all of a sudden he's no yous to rangers please dinna make me laugh he should be our main winger everyweek not we bum boy barrie mckay whos been dreadfull ths season and harry forester aswell does nothin but hack constantly moh should be startin all the time its becomin an absolute joke when waggys out wide and he's on the bench wtf is warburton playin at for christ sake, cum jan wouldn't be surprised if moh wants to leave then again so would i if out of form players were getting game instead of you!

16.) 29 Sep 2016 19:20:35
So O'halloran plays ahead of McKay, Forrester and Waghorn, aye nae bother mate.

17.) 29 Sep 2016 19:23:14
Pace, pace, pace! Usain Bolt's got pace and he can't play either! The guy's got no end product, and neither has McKay. We seem to concentrate our efforts on wide play but we're hardly well endowed with quality wingers. I know the manager will never change, but the squad we have cries out for 3-5-2 using wing backs and two up top. And all our good play always came with sharp passing and quick movement, why have we abandoned that?

18.) 29 Sep 2016 19:56:37
Id have tore us apart that nite. Big daft kiernan was nearly defending on their 18yd line and he's bowfing at the best of times so let's calm down abit here.

19.) 29 Sep 2016 20:02:03
James Stirling totally respect your opinion mate but MW never going to go 2 up front as he wants the full club top to bottom to play 4.3.3 so it sends out a contradictive msg if he goes 2 up top so that hits that in the head. agree abt garner as better players than him have took longer to settle but to me he spends so much energy trying to antagonize opposistion players and rolling abt with them to actually concentrate on being a footballer.

20.) 29 Sep 2016 22:44:07
Rick Witter u obv dinna watch rangers mate most gers fans are chockin for moh to get run games instead watchin borin forrester constantly bootin other players and mckay has been absolutly dreadfull this season so by far moh should finally get run games he causes other teams problems and can actually go past players with ease somethin harry forrester can't do fact and its something barrie mckay is strugglin to do since we have went up level he's clearly championship player it best, on other hand ohalloran has proved n dun it in the spl with st johnstone and if players who are way off form and are getting game then i'm sorry this club has problems either warburton has no clue or there havin funny buisness with the manager cause this would never in million years happend under sir walter the smith 100% pure FACT.

21.) 01 Oct 2016 03:01:09
Personally, I think MOH is a one trick pony but, I trust in MW's judgment 100%. I would however like to see a change in our approach to games. Formation, team selection and just general tactics. We have a decent pool of playing staff and a manager that we are lucky to have in my eyes.

Like JB and the rest of pundits/ people down south, they think our league is substandard and the EPL is the best in the world. I don't buy into that. It's the richest in the world but that's it.

Nobody said, or should have said it was going to be easy but we will get there. We just have to keep the blue flag flying high, and get behind our team.

I have not posted for a good few months but have continued to view the debates.

As the season closes and the objective of 55 has been completed, I am posting to concede my previous poor judgement.

I was one of a few at the start of the season who doubted Tav, Kent and Barisic. The debate was raging whether we should sell them and if they were Rangers quality or good enough to secure the 55

I questioned all of them but not so much their ability but rather their mentality to become winners and deliver. I recall stating that Tav in particular was no Rangers Captain, and we would never win the league while he was our captain. While I still believe he is short defensively at the top level, he has proved me completely wrong and his game and winning mentality has grown massively this year.

Barisic also has proven that he has the mentality to be a winner, and he can more or less pick his club when he decides to move on.

The biggest apology goes to Kent as I thought he could not deliver enough particularly when the chips were down. He has improved his upper body strength and grown from a boy to man in the last 18 months and is now a real team player. Last year he was easily pushed of the ball and this year he does really well for a winger in 50/ 50 challenges. This improved strength has allowed his undoubted ability and pace to flourish.

The team's performance this year is debatably the most important in Rangers history and I congratulate every one of the squad for bringing back much needed respect and belief to our club banishing the difficulties of the journey back. Special thanks to the 3 I doubted and will check myself in the future and not hold my opinions so closed. They were possibly a measure of my and our fans collective desperation to be successful, and I am happy to admit I got it completely wrong.

Onwards to 56.

Welcome home MOLS mate.

Got that off your chest an bet it feels good.

I thought you were MOLS GOALS but are you? .

2.) 05 May 2021 14:26:54
well said mols and welcome back hope all has been good with you . don't leave it so long the next time.

3.) 05 May 2021 14:31:02
Mols your not the only 1.I think most gers fans started doubting but we came good on the season that matters tho 🔴⚪🔵.

4.) 05 May 2021 14:35:03
Great to read u again Mols. Always a great contributor to site.
U like every one else are entitled to your opinion.

5.) 05 May 2021 14:43:36
Very well put moly’s

Very good indeed, and I join you in not being entirely happy with the commitment of a couple, but hats off to them

Rangers fans are used to a certain type of player, who is committed and ready to die for the cause if you like, this group aren’t quite at Walters, souys or wee dicks level, yet, but they done great, have a great day.

6.) 05 May 2021 14:47:48
Thanks Bluebilly

When you are wrong you are wrong - most important thing to me in 2012 was Rangers FC survival. This can now be replaced with Rangers FC continued success.

I am definitely a different Mols but we probably both share the same favourable Rangers Player.

7.) 05 May 2021 17:29:05
Great post my friend . amazing that you share your humble pie . Speaks volumes for your character.
We are riding a crest of a wave . and I think it has surprised many regarding our progress.
slowly but surely . I feel a treble coming on 👍.

Just watching the Murty Interview on TV and there is no clearer evidence of a manager who has lost a dressing room. Both Players and Manager not good enough


1.) 15 Apr 2018 16:55:54
Murty saying it’s a bit raw to go in and talk about the game it will only cause conflict! GET IN THERE AND HAVE A GO! No leaders on or off the park! Acceptance of defeats like this are what proves we are miles off it

2.) 15 Apr 2018 17:04:28
It was like watching a man who was frightened to tackle the problem and the Reaction of Candeas and Haliday proves there is no respect for Murty and they think they can challenge the Manager



27 Feb 2014 22:28:45
Given Mr Kings statement, this is the latest best opportunity to get behind someone who appears to have the clubs interest at heart. He has now broken ranks and for me we have to trust someone but regardless, this will take serious cash to sort our problems

My suggestion may seem oversimplified but here goes

Out of ~65M shares, the fans individually and collectively have 12% of the shareholding we believe (7. 8M shares)

39M (60%) Shares are held by the 9 named corporate investers who have 3% or more of the shares

This leaves 88% to secure. This could be any where between £17. 2M to £37. 2M (57. 3M Shares @ between 30p sand 65p a share) to get rid of the opportunists.

To control 51% of the club, we need to secure 33. 2M shares which would cost between £10M and £21. 6M.

Mr King bankrolls the purchase of these shares (33, 2M Shares regardless of price) until at least 51% of the club is secured say £21. 6M

40,000 Fans provide an Investment of £750 and lodge the money in the Secure account or enter a legally binding agreement with Mr King to commit to this investment (£30m). This agreement would be secured via the Rangers Supporters Union or other vehicle.

The 40,000 fans pay this £750 over an agreed 4 or 5 year period

This covers securing control of the club and the cost of financing it. As this is paid back by the fans to Mr King, he purchases shares for his own shareholding working toward 100% owner ship of the club (50%Mr King /50% Fan ownership)

The fans continue to pay for their season tickets every year to support the working capital for the club

In addition the fans pay double the season ticket price once every four years to fund the player budget for transfers

Many of you will laugh at the thought of 40,000 fans investing an additional £400 per year for the next 4 or 5 years on top of the ~£400 for the season ticket currently.

We all do plenty of moaning and we have to really ask ourselves what are we prepared to do. I personally see an investment of £4k over 4 years to get the club we want secure and to fund the purchase of players on a sustainable basis as an absolute no brainer. Think of the s*** that we waste £4k on in our lives - what is Rangers worth to you

The alternatives are grim and I refuse to believe that this is not possible. All we need is momentum and a will to do it.

The days of someone else paying for our football are gone and we have no other revenue stream until we rebuild the club. After 4 years, review the plan

I don't like this either, but it is time to get serious or we won't have a club and we only need to look in the mirror for the blame this time.


1.) MOLS,

You forgot to build in a mortality rate, with Ally as manager it may be significantly high.

On a serious note the Board did indicate further investment would be needed and sought in the summer, so what DK is asking for will happen. However the Board do not want these funds just to be used to prop up losses for a year and want cuts.
DK doesn't want the cuts and doesn't believe they can raise money against the assets.
This whole chess game is about forcing the shareholders to dilute their shares or else.

2.) Its a very laudable idea but many sb holders struggle to be able to pay what they have to pay but do u think d king will bank roll everything then hand club over for no profit and no gaurntee how he will recoudont think so his retoric at the minute is only trying to push down the ssshare price making it cheaper to take control and possibly he maybe does not want to push to hard being happy to pick up whatever shares he can at the price that suits then make the big push this time next season when the present shareholders have absorbed the losses next season driving the price lower

3.) What if the people holding the shares refuse to sell?

4.) Lbj d pushing share pric down does not make it cheaper to buy whole club, as highest price in last 12mths used in any buyout

king does not want ST money to be handed over in june and gone in sept.

5.) Thats only for the ones he has to offer to buy once he gets to certain % up to that he can pay what he likes when he likes and depending what deals he can make with upporters an other shareholders to he might not need to go as far as that

6.) Imran key here - he ran a stockbroker firm, and in many of the floats the shares are diluted undermining jo-public investors.

There are 30% of shares still held back that could dilute anyones holdings.

7.) Thanks for the responses and all points are clearly valid

@3 This is also valid but the goal for all of these Institutional Investors is to make money so unfortunately we will have to give it to them sooner or later. I would prefer sooner as things never get cheaper. If we don't the club will die a slow death or take 10 years to get back to any kind competitive level with Celtic.

As Mr King has rightly pointed out, the club is unsustainable without the season tickets. We hold the power and it is about time we exercised it.

Are we really prepared to be treated like this every year when season tickets come round.

Mr Wallace had the chance to win us all over by answering the 10 or so key questions which would satisfy 95% of the fans. He has either chosen not to or is bound by some other constraint (either stockmarket or contractual). It makes no difference to us what his excuse is. We are the customer and a business with out customers fails. let's not pretend we are going to Ibrox for the quality of the product, this is pure loyalty and faith in what our club was not what it is now and also in a group of people who deserve no such respect.

8.) N7 yes its loyalty to our football team and we all know what dave king is up to we are better with the devil we know so ime all for sideing with dave king a supporter that has rangers at heart not like the current board they are only there for money we know dk will be looking to earn but that's not his one and only priority

You are perfectly correct and Yogi is best placed to assess Kennedy but you have to ask why all the big clubs (Bayern Munich and others) who were rumoured to be tracking him 18 months ago were not forming a cue when he renewed his contract in the summer.

He made his debut at least 2 years ago and has not featured since. There seems to be a cloud which follows this boy so the juries out.

I would like nothing better than one of our own taking the left wing berth but can’t see it.

I’d bite West Ham’s hand of for this deal. I fear Kennedy is another one of the majority of youth players who have all the ability but do not have the mental attributes to realise their potential.

Stevie/ John

I think the right midfielder could be Murray Millar or Arron Lyall. Millar looks a good player but the pick for me is Alex Lowry.

He proved on weekly basis he had no appetite for the fight in a season that requires that more than anything else. Since leaving Rangers he could not secure a start in the Wigan 1sr team.

No thanks. Had a great opportunity and blew it.

He is worth another chance but suspect he does not have the physical strength or mentality to deliver what Rangers need. He showed when he played for Hibs he has something but producing it 5 games a year is not good enough at Rangers. There is a good reason why he never made it at Man City.

On the basis that this is largely Stevie Gs team, Gio deserves another year to make his mark regardless if we win nothing. If it’s the same result in a years time then his time his up. This also depends on who he is allowed to sign.

Rightly or wrongly investment in better quality in key positions is required just to catch up never mind overtake Celtic.

This Old firm game was no different to any other. You have to compete and match your direct opponents intensity and win your battles first 20 mins. If you do that you have a chance to win the game.

We did not compete the first half and Celtic made us look ordinary.

There is not much between the teams but Celtic were better tonight. Fullbacks who can’t defend is our former Achilles heal of two years ago. Barisic was sh*****g himself defending and going forward.

At the very least this a sign of Rangers return to its proper place when we can even attempt signings like this and then complete them - very encouraging.

Whether Ramsay is a top level signing or world class does not matter. He like any other signing will only be considered as a success if he makes a successful contribution to Rangers winning the title.

There is no doubt the guy has been some player and if fit definitely can be again.

If you had the choice of signing James MacCarthy or Arron Ramsay it is a no brainier given that both are around 31 have had injury problems which held back their career and played at a good level in the EPL.

Welcome to Ibrox Arron Ramsay.

I stand corrected. Shots stats more like 1 goal in 2 games. Should have taken a bit more care.

Would still take the Buff though.
