Papers reporting that both us and celtic after Lawrence Shankland in Jan. Doubt Dundee Utd will deal with us.


1.) 01 Oct 2019 11:48:59
Hope they don't deal with us, would be a blessing in disguise👍.

2.) 01 Oct 2019 13:50:35
No chance coldo, he is a poor player.

3.) 01 Oct 2019 15:46:50
I understand what you guys are saying, regarding us possibly signing lawrence shankland but you just never know how good a signing, or not for that matter, he'd be. Honestly guys, i heard the same thing thrown at ally mccoist, when we were trying to sign him from st. johnstone and then sunderland. He as we all know became our record goalscorer, of all time! For the record a lot of footballing people including mccoist himself, reckon shankland can make it at the much higher level and liken him to mccoist. We'll just have to wait and see how it all pans out. We can't simply assume that because nicky clark scored for fun at that level and couldn't when he stepped up a level, doesn't mean the same thing would happen to shankland. You just never know and football experience over many years teaches you that!

4.) 01 Oct 2019 16:03:43
Hes definitely not poor but I agree probably not the standard we require to keep moving forward.

5.) 01 Oct 2019 17:26:10
Herewego that makes him poor if he can’t move us forward. Why sign a player pay wages lend him out.
Anyone remember we got into trouble in the past.
Who would honestly pay million plus for a 24 year old who has not scored in top league.

6.) 01 Oct 2019 17:31:34
Supercoop, I remember the young McCoist very well as teenager at St Johnstone and he always had outstanding potential. Potential by itself however is not good enough and McCoist had incredible commitment and desire to succeed. IMO that’s why he had a great career.

the boy Shankland is a natural goal scorer but not good enough for us going forward. Believe he will reach a good level and have successful career with his current club or at standard of say Hibs/ Hearts but not with us.

7.) 01 Oct 2019 18:51:28
seem to want anyone who scores a few goals and a rangers supporter to then sit on the bench and waste away, if he is that good he would already have been picked by a bigger team. we can't buy all the rangers supporters out there.

8.) 01 Oct 2019 19:36:13
I’d rather not tbh, if the boss and scouting set up has missed a trick then so be it, Shankland, Brophy, Cosgrove and the boy from Livi are all not good enough IMHO, not saying I am always right, but think these players being banded about are a step backwards or sideways for our club, they’re hardly setting the heather alight (Shankland aside but not proven in a top league in spite of his scoring record) .

Looking forward to another 3 points against young boys.

9.) 02 Oct 2019 15:47:06
Not the standard we require doesn't mean he's poor john. I'm sure he could play in the spl no bother, think if we want to win the league and play in Europe he's probably not going to be at that standard. That doesn't mean he's poor.



22 Sep 2019 11:25:34
Katic not in the squad again today. Maybe the rumours are true afterall?


1.) 22 Sep 2019 13:07:47
Actually quite raging about this. The guy has gave his everything and been unreal just about every game he’s played. Goldson should be dropped before him because he hasn’t been anywhere near the level Katic has been at this season. Katic is also a player that could be sold on for millions if he gets more game time and develops because of his age.

2.) 22 Sep 2019 14:58:56
Katic will play on Wednesday in Cup Quarter Final.

3.) 22 Sep 2019 16:12:25
Bankie no he won’t, Helander now in possession. its a cup we need to win.

4.) 22 Sep 2019 16:24:36
Blu89, I agree with you sir, its worrying that Katic has been dropped, he's a fantastic player who has great potential and pops up with a goal or 2. I do question Gerrards team selection at times but I suppose he knows best. I would drop/ rest Goldson as he's been coming complacent. What's your view on this chaps?

5.) 22 Sep 2019 16:29:19
Agreed, I fear Katic won't be seen again for a long time. Don't know what Gerard's problem is with him? Goldson needs a rest.

6.) 22 Sep 2019 16:56:00
its a squad game. if you play well and are fit you keep jersey unless its for tactics. Big Swede wasnt bought to sit on bench so he has jersey for now. Big Conor scored today as well.

7.) 22 Sep 2019 17:30:48
Struth, the big Swede as u call him, has been immense since coming into the team, Katic is young and raw, we have a league to win.

8.) 22 Sep 2019 17:42:16
Agree happened last year Katic dropped for months for Worral cost us seems to not fancy him gerrard I think Katic best defender.

9.) 22 Sep 2019 17:59:57
Think about it this way Struth. If you are an employee at a job and you’re bursting you’re backside every day and working well would you not be mad if other employees who have just been going through the motions are promoted and you’re not?

10.) 22 Sep 2019 18:20:40
Gerard has also said many times, if you have the jersey it is yours to keep if you perform. Unless of course you are Goldson. Katic is hung out to dry again.

11.) 22 Sep 2019 20:29:59
The stuck, lots off nonsense being spoken re Katic replacing Goldson. One is a right sided cb the other a left sided lb. so if people want Goldson out it would be edmundson who came in.

12.) 22 Sep 2019 22:13:45
Bursting your backside off to maintain the standard all around you dosent wash with me, if that is what it takes and you fall below that, only one outcome, your dropped. Goldson and Helander are our best centre back pairing.

13.) 22 Sep 2019 22:21:45
John25 think you’ll find Katic is right footed.

14.) 22 Sep 2019 22:30:54
It may just be that katic has played a fair amount of football. He played during the summer break with Croatia at euro championships. Could just be resting him in preparation for a long busy season ahead. Think arfield will be the same after Canada duty. I would also think Davis will be due for a rest coming soon with possibly king coming in to the team.

15.) 22 Sep 2019 23:15:07
If there is a disciplinary prob then the manager is obligated to sort it out . I think Katic is brill . There was footage however at the start of the season where he took umbrage to something jones said in training and Katic went for him so I think he is quite a fiery character and maybe he has to be brought into heel . simple as that . Lastcyesr everyone forgets but he was injured then came back too early . But all the press, people on here and pundits say he was dropped. That is not the case last year .

16.) 22 Sep 2019 23:30:15
Robbie your argument makes no sense because Katic has been better than Goldson so why does Goldson get the jersey automatically?

17.) 23 Sep 2019 10:24:13
Gerrard said after the Feyenoord game that Goldson is technically better than Katic. I rate Goldson very highly too, I think he's our best defender.

18.) 23 Sep 2019 10:49:06
Helander goldson katic

Katic should be number 1 cb an let hel n gold fight for num 2
Katic been 100% better than hel n gold put together.

19.) 23 Sep 2019 13:12:58
Katic has looked great at times and not so much at others. SG picks based on what he sees, and he sees far more than we do.

Nobody can deny that Goldson and Katic partnership was not working perfectly. Teams were creating chances against us that they wouldn't against a better centre half pairing. For me, neither looked great.

SG reckoned Goldson and Helander was the best option in the past two games, and we've kept two clean sheets and won both games. So let's carry on trusting him with the decisions, and calm down on both the criticism of him, and the praise of Katic.

If some of the posters on here were to be believed, Katic and Barasic would be contenders for the Baloon D'or. And Halliday would be responsible for every bad result we've had since he signed.

20.) 24 Sep 2019 17:10:36
If there was a bust up at training then nobody knows what has been said. Which may have led to katic been cast aside. Would like to edmunson more to be honest. be great if he could get great partnership with helander going.

21.) 24 Sep 2019 17:37:08
Believe Helander and Katic will play central defence tomorrow night. Don’t believe that weakens the defence. If.



09 Mar 2019 13:16:49
I've heard Davis is to join permanently. To be honest, I don't see the sense in this, hasn't contributed much. Also, fair play to Leanne Dempster coming out on TV last night and personally going to apologise to Tav.


1.) 09 Mar 2019 13:53:11
There is no sense in signing davis permanently, he hasn't contributed one bit. Another high wage that could be better spent. 👍.

2.) 09 Mar 2019 18:55:53
Davis will come good and still has loads to offer a pre season into him and involved from word go he would do us a turn.

3.) 09 Mar 2019 19:07:12
This was my nightmare from the start, my favourite, that I have seen, Rangers player mediocre sad sad sad.

4.) 10 Mar 2019 01:16:02
There is a fair chance that Stevie G knows a bit more about football than some of the people who post on here.

I could be wrong, of course, but will take my chances.

If Steven Davis is with us next season, it will be because the man whose job depends upon it has made the decision.

5.) 10 Mar 2019 10:10:25
Davis will come good, his legs haven’t gone, he’s just not match fit, never panic lads it clouds your vision.



06 Mar 2019 10:29:15
Gerard apparently looking at Millwall RB Mahlon Romeo. Given that we have Polster, could Tav be off?


1.) 06 Mar 2019 15:39:23
Yes he's 100% been targeting as a replacement however I think it would take around £8m for us to sell Tav.

2.) 06 Mar 2019 15:58:33
I’ve seen the boy Romeo a couple of times this seaon mainly coming off the bench at Millwall. Tidy player, more like Logan at the sheep than Tav. Certainly not the attackng threat of Tav.

3.) 06 Mar 2019 18:13:03
It would cost more, than 6 mill
To take Romeo to rangers.

4.) 06 Mar 2019 23:20:43
Macbow. £6m for a soon to be out of contract player?

5.) 07 Mar 2019 08:57:09
Romeo, Romeo, where for art thou, Romeo!
I'll get my coat.



25 Jan 2019 08:52:09
Any update as to whether Goldson will be fit for Sunday? If not I dread to think what will happen with the 2 bombscare's at the back at Livingston.

Folks, I know there's no tax experts on here (unlike their pages), however does anyone know if there is anything stopping DK buying back old co and merging with new co so any compensation received from HMRC can benefit us just now?


1.) 15 Nov 2019 10:05:02
without knowing all the details of course, funds that become available will go to the original creditors listed at the time. So / i think if the new company didn't exist it won't be a creditor.
The fun comes in decidingwhere the surplus if ant might go.
Whet if Whyte is on that list.

2.) 15 Nov 2019 17:25:10
aye whyte will be on the list for the 1pound he put in. but you are correct if the surplus if any then made the company solvent as such and ability to clear its debt you can request the courts to cancel the liquidation.



14 Nov 2019 13:57:49
In relation to the news broke by the Times last night concerning the overcharged tax, I feel there needs to be a public enquiry. What we're talking about is a Government Dept tasked with collecting tax effectively force a business into liquidation, leaving hundreds of businesses out of pocket, and who really knows how many jobs were lost as a result, we lost millions of pounds worth of players for nothing as they walked out the door. This is what should concern everybody, irrespective of what colours we wear.


1.) 14 Nov 2019 14:05:46

Where are all the tax experts when you need them? At another tax experts convention?

6.) 14 Nov 2019 16:03:26
I think you will find they are all over in the dark side, no doubt will crawl out soon.
Cheers Brian.

7.) 14 Nov 2019 17:24:07
Surely as DEEB said our legal side would have asked for a breakdown of the exact tax bill Rangers owed come on its not rocket science something not right here as we all know we were set up and you won’t need to look too far for the culprits 🇬🇧.

8.) 14 Nov 2019 18:53:23
The revenue issued a breakdown of my pittance so I am sure they do the same for all. Someone looked at this at HMRC, RFC and our accountants and signed it off. Did they even look at it in detail.

9.) 14 Nov 2019 18:58:42
if you were to remember we were fighting based on we didn't owe anything from a point of law. we were arguing what we did was legal and as such no TAX was owed whatsoever. also remember it wasnt the big tax bill that put us in admin it was a conceived plan of Mr White by not paying PAYE that forced us into admin. that said if the bill is 20M then for sure we would have survived, us bears and a few outside investor plowed 22M into Gers immediately after. really annoyed that if this didn't need to happen many other things wouldn't have followed ie placed in bottom tier, being ridiculed, begging for a licence, void of european nights, having to now spend money just to stop 10 in a row etc etc. disgusting and it cannot be swept under the carpet.

10.) 14 Nov 2019 19:26:27
Exactly geesa . that’s why the plan might be to bring back the old co as DK suggests . and put in a heavy heavy claim for loss of earnings etc etc . I reckon about 150 mill should cover it.

11.) 14 Nov 2019 21:09:32
We talk wanting breakdown of tax bill, remember Whyte bought our club so as to liquidate us, he had done in many time before.
Challenging what we owed would not have suited his agenda.
Remember Walter left because he was excluded from financial matters.

12.) 15 Nov 2019 09:10:49
Good Morning Deeb and John25, I think the breakdown of tax demands and indeed any refunds due is a very valid point, and if acted upon properly at the time would have saved us all of this heartache, in my opinion.

All HMRC communications do provide a detailed breakdown of how charges and refunds are calculated, so, as has been stated it shouldn't be hard to identify who exactly was at fault at Rangers during that time for not querying these figures, and those are the people that should be worried at this time. I don't believe that it will impact much at all on the existing RIFC, unless there can be a direct link shown to the costs our current incumbents have had to pay due to what can possibly be shown to be professional failure by the Board in 2011.

13.) 15 Nov 2019 13:01:28
Agree irvger my point is Hmrc would have sent breakdown, Whyte and his cohorts hid it for their own personal gain.



09 Nov 2019 18:23:38
A few rumours doing the rounds that Arsenal are looking at Gerard should Emery lose his job. Now, hopefully they are just rumours, however what do you folks think, should Gerard stay us with us or does he view doing a good job with Arsenal over a couple of seasons as a quicker route back to Liverpool? He must be looking at Lampard who, after a decent job with Derby now has his dream job at Chelsea. As I said, hopefully their only rumours.


1.) 09 Nov 2019 20:17:05
What if SG did go to arsenal and it all went pete tong? It would probably ruin his chance to manage Liverpool. I heard klopp was going to leave Liverpool in a couple of years. SG wins the league, cup, manage gers into the champions league. Leave when Liverpool come calling.

2.) 10 Nov 2019 08:52:06
As you say, they are just rumours, and not very believable ones at that. Klopp is at Liverpool for as long as he wants to be, never mind leaving in 'a couple of years'. If it does happen sooner rather than later, they will replace him with a manager with a great European pedigree, which will NOT be Stevie G. He'd become the next but one.

If (most likely scenario) Klopp gives them another three or four years and Gerrard has a good measure of success with us, then he'll be in line for the Liverpool job. Nothing to do with looking wistfully at Lampard, just that Liverpool are now back to where they believe they belong and will be planning to stay there, and apart from a couple of other teams in England, none are bigger than Rangers, are not guaranteed European football like Rangers, and don't have the fan base of Rangers.

If Klopp looks like he's there for the long haul, I'd be more concerned about losing Gerrard to a top European team for a couple of seasons before Anfield calls.

3.) 10 Nov 2019 09:42:38
By the time klopp does leave SG could well have a 'european pedigree' managing gers. Not sure your 'likely scenario' is any true/ valid than rumours 😉.

4.) 10 Nov 2019 15:42:48
That's exactly what I said, if, in three or four years he develops that sort of pedigree, he will be in line for the Liverpool job. Thank you for agreeing with me, mrgrumpy.



04 Nov 2019 11:42:35
I know it's over a month away but butterflies have started already for the fnal. What tactics do you think Gerard will use? Hopefully he'll have learned from the defeat against them at Ibrox this season as we let them dictate everything. Hope we go at them with pace from the start - a crap Hibs team took 2 off them as did Livi who got in about them.


1.) 04 Nov 2019 13:26:03
Spot on Sir Struth, I said similarly in another post, Celtic don't like it when teams go at them, also, if we don't go after them it will show a fear of them, which we all know is not the case.

2.) 04 Nov 2019 13:32:13
Hopefully its not the tactics that he used at ibrox👍.

3.) 04 Nov 2019 13:50:03
Play our normal game and we beat them. Change the tactics out of “respect” for them and we’ll lose. That’s seems to be the way it’s gone since Gerrard has been here.

4.) 04 Nov 2019 14:04:40
If we go out and play our normal game then we have a great chance. If gerrard plays the tactic he did at ibrox then he's cost us again.

5.) 04 Nov 2019 14:38:54

Tav Goldson Katic Barasic

Jack Davis Aribo

Arfield Morelos Kent

Thats the team to play against celtic.

6.) 04 Nov 2019 15:37:26
No Aribo for me yet in our best 11 for big games, Kamara for me.

7.) 04 Nov 2019 15:46:36
Same as yesterday bar ojo out and jones in (if fit) .

8.) 04 Nov 2019 16:41:48
Coully and paul I agree, we need to play our best players. Anyone know when jones is back? 👍.

9.) 05 Nov 2019 12:08:34
Coldo you talk absolute mince - you are the guy wants to drop our top scorer. our captain, our central defenders, our left back, even questioning the manager when we are competing on all fronts. Play our best players? Do you even know what football is?

10.) 05 Nov 2019 12:32:02
More single fish from you souness. You are pure raging because you know all along I was spot on. Unlucky mate👍.

11.) 05 Nov 2019 14:17:05
Do you just copy and paste that reply Tam? Stop moaning about trolling. If your going to talk crap expect a response. I should know eh?



03 Nov 2019 15:46:17
McLean should be off and Hearts are just spoiling this game. With the excepion of Rangers and Celtic, the rest of Scottish football are a bunch of hammer throwers who don't even try to play.


1.) 03 Nov 2019 16:57:49
Motm for me and Morelos has to now be 30-35million and not a penny less he's the best thing Pedro ever done for us finding him for 1 million.

2.) 03 Nov 2019 17:12:35
jj found him.

isnt it great we don't have var?

For those saying Gerard isn't going anywhere, he might not have a choice. As much as I've tried, I still haven't forgiven him for that absolute shambles of last Sunday. I thought the days of celtic winning OF games without breaking sweat were over, but nope. Time will tell if he's man enough to admit he made a massive massive mistake and we never see that ****ed up formation ever again. Celtic aren't anything like they've been under Rodgers, but we made them look good last Sunday and that is unforgivable. Mistake or no mistake, it was an OF game, and you should never use these games to try and experiment. He tried it last season v motherwell and we dropped 2 points, this time we dropped all 3.
