Hearing balogun offered new deal.


1.) 03 Jun 2022 10:22:44
If true i don't see Hellander or Katic staying past the summer.

2.) 03 Jun 2022 12:05:51
I think Simpson is very likely to leave plus either Katic or Helander but not both. If report is true that Balagun is getting year extension and Goldson committed with Souter just arriving I think Helander will stay.

3.) 03 Jun 2022 12:09:34
Don’t see the point unless going to play 3 at the back. Katic and Simpson out would leave us with goldson, souttar, helander, Bassey and king. Where does balogun fit in? King needs to start playing more regular in my opinion. and lundstram and sands can also fit in to a back 3. Like him but time to move on I think.

4.) 03 Jun 2022 12:23:18
Bassey is a left back only played cb because of injuries.

5.) 03 Jun 2022 12:54:49
Gio, has turned Big Shirley into a monster of a central defender! Left footed centre half’s are hard to get that are as a good as him!

6.) 03 Jun 2022 12:55:46
Monty I think Balogun for another year will be great for young King. A lot of hype and expectations on the lad which I have no doubt he will love up to but offers him that wee bit more protection to gradually increase game time with solid partners. Could play with 3 out of the 4 and be talked through the game.

7.) 03 Jun 2022 13:15:24
Keep katic.

8.) 03 Jun 2022 13:23:24
Bassey for me should be played at left back and hopefully that’s where he is played for the most of next season.

9.) 03 Jun 2022 13:32:16
Think it will be 3 cb next season Soutter Goldson and Bassey.

10.) 03 Jun 2022 14:36:44
Plus Balogun is a better option than Helander. Lacks far too much pace and especially now with yet another injury to recover from unlike Davie Weir Helander doesn’t gain that extra yard of pace he lacks with positioning.

11.) 03 Jun 2022 14:41:12
Bassey motm at cb in in europa league final. Other than helander we have no other left footed cb. Adds balance to the defence. I like him at left back as well but he’s turned into an animal at centre half.

12.) 03 Jun 2022 15:00:34
Tango that's nonsense bassey isn't only a lb, remember the europa final, gio could easily off played balogun at cb and bassey at lb, but he didn't he played borna, so in gios eyes bornas a better lb than balogun is cb, my point is lots of players can play numerous positions, mind, broadfoot, papac, konterman, daily, Jig, Ricksen, van bronckhorst the kiss is endless, Goldson, helander, bassey, souttar all better cbs than balogun, king should have his place. Yep balogun has had some outstanding performances but I remember more bombscares than man of match performances, I'd be very surprised if he's in the mix next season.

13.) 03 Jun 2022 15:35:46
If we can find a buyer then I would sell Helander. He is far too injury prone. I can't imagine that he has played many games in the season just past. We should look to cut our losses.

14.) 03 Jun 2022 16:25:58
Bassey is far better bombing foward on the wing and sure he would rather play left back as he seems to enjoy going foward more sure he does a job at centre back but lb is his natural position so how’s it nonsense.

15.) 03 Jun 2022 16:27:11
Bassey a better centre back than balgoun no one was saying that until last 6 weeks people need to calm down bassey struggles to win a header.

16.) 03 Jun 2022 17:28:02
My fear is Souttar and Helander have bad records with injury that’s why I would give Balagun an extension but Simpson plus Katic and/ or Helander would prob be best solution as I forgot about emergence of young King.

17.) 03 Jun 2022 18:08:39
Looks like he's away last time I listen yo the person that told me he was staying.

18.) 03 Jun 2022 20:20:22
That’s him been released. Helander going no where. Everyone goes on about his pace but his positioning is that good he rarely gets caught out with pace. Yes he’s had his injuries but so has Katic and some want to give him a chance….

19.) 03 Jun 2022 21:59:08
Monty, i agree with you on big phil, mate,



01 Jun 2022 14:39:23
Mcgregor 1 year extension.


1.) 01 Jun 2022 16:30:25
When? Nothing official yet.



25 May 2022 14:40:15
Alan Hutton has came out and said he's spoken to goldston and he wants to stay but goldston doesn't think he's been rewarded enough with his contract offer after all he's achieved, so it's pure money and nothing to do with family wanting back to England.


1.) 25 May 2022 15:04:00
His family ( missus) does want back to england tho.

2.) 25 May 2022 15:07:03
That's Huttons opinion and if goldson is being unrealistic RW has already made it clear no1 will break the clubs wage structure I think we'd all agree about that.

3.) 25 May 2022 15:22:00
He’s probably got offer of £60k pw on the table from England amd will want similar from us but we simply won’t cause we can’t pay that amount of money.
Great servan t to the club really top drawer attitude and ability very decemt but partial to mistakes and the goal in europa was his fault.
I’d be happy to replace him with better if we can n if not we need to keep him.

4.) 25 May 2022 15:31:31
Looks like he's trying to endear himself to the fans before he leaves by making all the onus on the club?

5.) 25 May 2022 15:38:27
The Forrest result at the weekend might have a big bearing on whether he goes or not.

6.) 25 May 2022 16:04:06
Nearly cost us again in the cup final v Hearts letting the ball go across him again. I'd let go, can't break wage structure for him.

7.) 25 May 2022 16:14:26
I'm not really too bothered if he goes anyway.

8.) 25 May 2022 16:28:40
If your talking about the Simms chance it’s actually Tavs mistake.

9.) 25 May 2022 16:38:05
He stroked it against hearts They never had a shot on target talk sense .

10.) 25 May 2022 17:36:48
What’s he achieved that the rest of the league cup winning team haven’t achieved? I think he’s been suspect 3/ 4 seasons he’s been with us. He’s a decent player but he’s not irreplaceable.

11.) 25 May 2022 17:57:44
I think this thread tells a story in itself we’re not that bothered if he stays or not.
Not one person has said they are desperate for him to stay.
Overall a Great servant to the club but not worth the wages he’s chasing. So
E times in these situations we could offer say a million to residents on 3/ 4 year deal and the player accepts what we’re offering as he gets a lump sum upfront and it saves us buying a replacement so everyone wins. Just an idea.

12.) 25 May 2022 18:25:34
When villa can offer Tarkowski 130k a week guys like goldson must look on thinking they can get a bit of that.

13.) 25 May 2022 18:47:25
No player is bigger than rangers. Plain and simple.

14.) 25 May 2022 18:54:25
One Walter no way anybody will be offering tarkowski anywhere close to 130 grand a week.

15.) 25 May 2022 19:04:45
Been a fantastic signing and a huge part of our success. Just look at the issues we had with other CHs before he arrived. Would like to see him stay but if he wants to go fair enough.

16.) 25 May 2022 19:11:14
alan hutton shouldn't be disclosing anyones contractual matters, let alone telling the press.

17.) 25 May 2022 19:56:11
Herewego, sky sports are reporting villa offered him 120 / 30k a week to try fend off Everton interest.

18.) 25 May 2022 19:57:41
The truth is we keep our transfer dealings very quiet and we'll know off any signings when the club announce it.

19.) 25 May 2022 20:34:34
Hutton try to keep himself relevant.

20.) 25 May 2022 22:09:52
Herewego 55 Villa are offering him 120k a week he is free and English he will get that apparently on 60k with Burnley.

21.) 25 May 2022 22:20:46
Don't see why there is a big fuss about Goldson, he's been rotten since he came to the club. Hardly missed a game, yes, but undeserving of the amount of games he has played. Souttar is probably a better defender, when fit. Far too many misktakes from Goldson on a regular basis and he blames others when he loses his man!
He's had a good run but he's only won 2 trophies out of god knows how many and cost us the UEL with schoolboy defending.
All the best, see you later!

22.) 25 May 2022 23:14:18
Craig he didn’t cost us the Europa league on his own a couple of others played there part in the goal.

23.) 26 May 2022 05:26:35
Connor goldson's wife wants to go back to england and i'm led to believe that they're building a new family home in the midlands .

24.) 26 May 2022 13:25:50
That's mental money if true, looking at villa wages that would him be instantly into the top bracket of earners. he's pretty much just a bang average player.

25.) 26 May 2022 13:42:50
Wow people actually think Souttar’s better than Goldson.

Absolute madness, won’t realise what we’ve had when he leaves this summer.

26.) 26 May 2022 15:22:00
I’m shocked at the number of folk on here saying they don’t care if Goldson goes?! WTF. He’s been our best CB for a number of years and will be a massive loss. I wish him well and if it’s for family reasons he’s returning down south then fair play to him, family first.

27.) 26 May 2022 16:47:40
My concern in losing Goldson is who is going to replace him. He might not be a Butcher or a Gough but he has been a significant player for us and he will not be easy to replace.

28.) 26 May 2022 20:37:14
Craigmp? He's been rotten? Sorry but that is absolute drivel, yes he's had some errors but the big man has been ever present his attitude and commitment has been excellent, to say he's been rotten is up there with one of the worst statements I've ever read, at times he can be frustrating but he has been a excellent signing to say other wise for me is truly baffling.



15 May 2022 19:21:41
Villa after aribo for 7million supposedly.


1.) 15 May 2022 19:51:41
anything above 12/ 14 with addons i'd take as he is coming up on his last year.

2.) 15 May 2022 20:01:44
It’s further down the page for 10.

3.) 15 May 2022 20:56:18
There better be a zero after the 7 then. Cheeky blighters.

4.) 15 May 2022 21:27:27
Me2, is that for his left or right leg mate.

5.) 15 May 2022 21:39:17
I'd hope we'd get more but if he's into his last season maybe we'll have to accept lower offers as clubs will try it on. Imo 10m would be nearer the mark.

6.) 16 May 2022 01:26:03
He’s got a £10m release clause.

7.) 16 May 2022 08:46:19
£7m doesn't feel right - I appreciate that he's in the final year of his deal, but for us to sign a first team player that's going to improve our starting 11 will cost £5-7m - so somewhere between £10-12m would seem like sensible business.

8.) 16 May 2022 09:40:16
If we do turn down 7 million he can leave for nothing next year.

9.) 16 May 2022 10:46:50
Sadly being in the last year of a deal means a player's fee isn't going to get close to the market value. If he's not signing a new deal we'll not get more than £10M.

10.) 16 May 2022 12:15:33
Again, it’s not possible for us to get more than £10m he’s got a release clause at that price.

11.) 16 May 2022 14:21:56
Copland where are you reading this? as far is i'm aware he's not got a release clause.

12.) 16 May 2022 14:46:38
Copland it’s not a release clause. It allows teams to talk to him if the clause is met. I believe it’s higher than what u say.

13.) 16 May 2022 15:25:27
It’s 100% at £10m.

John25 so it’s a release clause then? What your saying it is is exactly what a release clause is.

14.) 16 May 2022 16:12:06
Lundstram cost us 0 and improved the starting 11 don’t see how we need to spend big to improve the team.

15.) 16 May 2022 18:13:49
7m sounds right as a starting offer. This will be bumped up hopefully as more than one club keen presumably. 10m should cut it.

16.) 16 May 2022 19:31:23
10 mil with add ons sounds about right for last year of contract. Players are only worth what a club is willing to pay. Sell when stocks high if you want good return.

17.) 16 May 2022 19:42:11
You are right CF5. John doesn't like to be proved wrong. Its exactly what a release clause is.

{Ed001's Note - no it isn't. A release clause is when the team has to sell for that price. Except they are not legally binding in the UK unless the law has been changed in the last few years. Luis Suarez found that out when he had a release clause in his Liverpool contract for any bid over £40m and Arsenal bid £40m + £1 and Liverpool rejected it. He took LFC to court to force through a move to the Gunners and lost.}

18.) 16 May 2022 20:58:02
Aribo may join Villa but not for £10m. The figure being discussed closer to double that.

19.) 16 May 2022 21:49:25
Yeah that's what we said a release is. He has a £10mil release clause.

{Ed001's Note - no it isn't. Are you being deliberately obtuse? If it was a release clause you would have to sell for that price. They are not enforceable in the UK.}

20.) 16 May 2022 22:00:49
Just read the suarez case ed and you are wrong. Suarez had a "good faith" release clause where if 40mil was bid the clubs would sit down and negotiate a fee. It was not a an automatic release clause in the contract and that was why he lost in court. Also can't see anywhere where it say's they are not legally binding in the uk. Plenty of examples where players have been sold due to release clause in the uk.

{Ed001's Note - ok you read a couple of tabloids and think you know it all. I am not wasting my time.}

21.) 16 May 2022 22:12:26
Actually if you google "release clause uk" you'll quickly realise that what you have said is wrong ed. There is no need to be petulant about it in your reply, what's wrong with constructive debate.?

{Ed001's Note - there is no constructive debate with you and whatever you googled is obviously wrong. I am not being petulant, just not wasting time on an arrogant know it all who refuses to accept anything anyone else says might be right or that he is wrong again.}

22.) 16 May 2022 22:44:07
Ok so every hit on google is wrong?

{Ed001's Note - see pointless. You will repeat yourself ad nauseum, deliberately misrepresent what anyone else says and waste everyone's time. I am not interested.}

23.) 16 May 2022 22:45:08
Look at the Chris Wood to Newcastle deal.

Newcastle bid £25m which met his release clause), Sean Dyche confirmed that he wasn’t allowed to reject it despite him not wanting Wood to go especially to a relegation rival.

{Ed001's Note - because the club wanted the money and the player wanted the move, not because the law forced him to accept it. The board made the decision to accept it.}

24.) 16 May 2022 22:47:48
Players can't buy themselves out of their contracts under uk law but clubs can. I think this is where you are getting confused ed.

{Ed001's Note - I am not getting confused.}

25.) 16 May 2022 23:46:47
Ace in the pack, I personally think the edd has it right, my logic, if villa were to offer rangers 10 million then ace you say that's the release clause, but what if say everton offered us 15 million, ace, are you saying villa would get player for 10 because of releae clause? apart from that the edd refers to ssaurez, sounds more logical, uk law.

26.) 17 May 2022 08:09:55
They wouldn’t need to bid £15million. If a release clause is met then that gives the clubs the permission needed to speak to the player. The player still has the option to sign or reject the club but the release clause means it’s not possible to reject the value of it.

27.) 17 May 2022 11:29:10
Ed 1 ace return to his coldo days.

Ed my opuntia u r correct
Copland I understand where you r coming from however there is a subtle difference in a relates clause and a sell on clause.

{Ed001's Note - the problem is that so few people understand what the difference is between the clauses. A release clause forces a club to release a player on payment of the amount specified, ie what Neymar did to leave Barcelona and join PSG. It is listed as a transfer fee between the clubs, but that never happened. What PSG did is gave Neymar 200m to buy out his Barcelona contract, ie to be released from it. You can't do that in the UK. All Spanish contracts have to have a release clause in them. Until Coldo actually gets a clue and figures out that he is wrong about what a release clause is, the sooner I won't have to delete all the completely wrong posts he keeps sending in trying to tell me he knows better. The problem is people believe the crap in tabloids when it suits them and fail to remember that no fact checking or any kind of decent level of research is applied to the crap they spew out these days.}

28.) 17 May 2022 12:00:45
Ed is correct - there are numerous ''triggers'' inserted in to football contracts which actually don't align to standard European (or post Brexit UK) contract law.

In the case of the 'release cause' this is because you're inserting a clause in to a contract for a 3rd party that doesn't actually exist.

In legal terms these are seen as 'good faith' as opposed to 'legally binding'' - i. e. the Suarez case.

In most cases what is reported as a 'release clause' is actually a 'buy-out' clause - which is a variable figure that adjusts over the course of a contract to allow the player to buy themselves out of the current deal - these values are often used / quoted as the ''release clause'' or used as a guide to inform the transfer fee - i. e. the Neymar deal.

As I haven't seen Aribos contract - I'd assume we have agreed a fee with Aribo that would allow his agents to open communication with other clubs.

The term 'good faith' is appropriate though - as although Rangers wouldn't be bound to sell Aribo if the fee was met, it could be damaging to Rangers to reject this, i. e. in future contract negotiations.

{Ed001's Note - thank you, finally someone who understands!}

29.) 17 May 2022 13:14:30
Wish I never posted rumour, didn't want to start a war.

30.) 17 May 2022 14:59:33
Again the Suarez one wasn’t a release clause. The Chris Wood one was, the Joe Aribo one is.

{Ed001's Note - if you say so. But you clearly do not understand what a release clause is and are wrong again. No matter how many times you repeat yourself, you are still wrong so give it a rest. The Suarez one was the only one that was a release clause. It is pointless explaining if you can't read what is already there when EHL2020 has explained it to you.}

31.) 17 May 2022 15:07:26
Can we simplify this - a release clause means if you meet the number, the possibility of signing the player becomes much higher but isn't legal. It's contractual. It means the 'selling' club gets what they want and the player is left to decide if he wants to join the bidding club. But nothing is legally enforcable. As the ed said, Suarez lost. To suggest you MUST sell a player because the clause is met is literally illegal. It's like if I have a TV worth £2000 and someone says 'I'll give you £4,000, now hand it over' and suddenly you've legally GOT to sell it because they're giving you such a handsome price!

32.) 17 May 2022 15:43:51
So, where does this leave Santa clause, . Is he real or not Ed?

{Ed001's Note - real. Defo real.}

33.) 17 May 2022 17:02:55
Ehl great post.

34.) 17 May 2022 17:48:55
Release clause or not over 10million or get to f.

35.) 17 May 2022 19:19:12
Ehl2020, thanks for clearing that up mate, hope it puts an end to this debate.



27 Jan 2022 12:02:43
Heard amad diallo joining from man utd 19 year old winger, don't know anything about him or if it's true.


1.) 27 Jan 2022 12:36:52
They signed him from Atlanta for apparently £37m in the summer but is yet to break through to their first team. Meant to be very talented. Put it this way, don’t think it’ll be a ‘loan to buy’ if it is true! 😂.

2.) 27 Jan 2022 12:43:02
Heard he's getting medical just now.

3.) 27 Jan 2022 12:44:25
6 month loan with an option to get another year.

4.) 27 Jan 2022 13:05:24
Could be a very good short term fix if we are unable to secure the right permanent signing.

5.) 27 Jan 2022 13:18:56
Agree Dunfermline Loyal a great short term fix but I would prefer to get someone else on a perm deal but maybe better options might be available in the summer window.

Id be surprised if we pull this one off but let’s wait and see.

6.) 27 Jan 2022 13:21:42
Yeah it also maybe free's up some cash to add one more player in this window.

7.) 27 Jan 2022 13:26:53
Think it's just about a done deal.

8.) 27 Jan 2022 14:07:21
Sounds really promising.

9.) 27 Jan 2022 15:53:08
Very promising. Imagine we could land Simmons on a similar loan deal . Timplosion!

10.) 27 Jan 2022 16:54:40
Diallo is a quality young player but we really need him for more than 6 months! We also need a goal scoring attacking midfield player or a striker to complement Morelos. Itten is a liability and will never be a success at rangers.

11.) 27 Jan 2022 18:00:37
Regarding Itten he just needs to rebuild his form and confidence look at pre season he was sharp he went to a team who was only promoted and it was Germany if he can get a few Goals in the league under his belt he will improve.

Anyone been in superstore at stadium lately taking my daughter to get home top and was wondering if its card payment only.


1.) 25 Jun 2022 16:41:22
Yip mate, card payment only.



18 Jun 2022 12:24:01
Know its still early but anyone else desperate for us to announce a signing, keep checking but nothing.

3.) 18 Jun 2022 13:48:33
John do you have any info on the 2 or positions.

4.) 18 Jun 2022 14:09:25
From your usual source John25 ?
You know who I'm referring to mate ?.

5.) 18 Jun 2022 14:26:55
Goalkeeper and a right sided forward one Walter.

6.) 18 Jun 2022 15:57:11
Linked with the turkish keeper ozer.

7.) 18 Jun 2022 16:10:53
So that would rule out any quick possible deal for botheim as he's a striker John25 ?.

8.) 18 Jun 2022 16:29:53
Yes mark,
Mb SGL but bothiem can play anywhere across front three.
Time will tell, we just need to be patient.

9.) 18 Jun 2022 16:38:33
Think Bothiem will be our next signing going by reports.

10.) 18 Jun 2022 17:20:09
If Botheim is coming, can he bring his big mate Solbakken as well please.

11.) 18 Jun 2022 17:34:51
Journo reporting we have no interest in botheim. All came from the fake romano tweet.

12.) 18 Jun 2022 19:12:09
Paul we may or may not be interested in him but rumors were before that tweet.

Hope you are right John as I am impatient ??.
