Hope it's not true. just read that we are interested in Bristol striker Semenyo at 5milllion. Guy's scored 17 in 115 games. That rate barely prolific and would hope we would be looking at better than that.

Spanish John

1.) 10 Nov 2022 10:22:26
Well I hope it is very true he would be a star for our club.

2.) 10 Nov 2022 10:35:05
where have you heard this mate?

3.) 10 Nov 2022 11:51:36
This morning on Our view ITTC and Ibrox news.

4.) 10 Nov 2022 12:27:55
If correct first thing ibrox news have been right about.

5.) 10 Nov 2022 15:43:15
We need too find a few scottish guys n get a bit of backbone back intoo the team, players who what's it like too represent the old firm cause when mcgregor hangs up the gloves, who there knows our institution and what it stands for, guys who would be ashamed and hate too lose too celtic
Andy Haliday example, not our most amazing player, but in an old firm would run through a wall for the jersey, and find that extra10 20% too pull us through, some of the guys there are embarrassing just now, we have no backbone or spine

WE need too find our roots and build on not just bring in more sh#te too make up numbers.

6.) 10 Nov 2022 15:51:39
???Ibrox News is to reliable Rangers transfer news as Rabbi Matondo is to being a footballer!

7.) 10 Nov 2022 17:00:10
Today I’m being told rangers have no interest in semyeno or the goalkeeper kovacevic

Allegedly we have agreed to bring in a goalie for a million in January.

8.) 10 Nov 2022 17:23:15
NRD every time matondo plays left wing he is effective, 2 assists in 15 mins v St Johnstone, won us a vital penalty a week or 2 ago. not his fault our manager is clueless.

9.) 10 Nov 2022 17:42:03
Hi Rabbi.

10.) 10 Nov 2022 18:02:54
who’s the goalkeeper john, did you get any names mate?

11.) 10 Nov 2022 18:24:38
We need to stop shopping in lower league england market we are basically shopping for same player market as hearts and some other spl it's stupid especially with player prices being inflated means we end up chasing bosmans only and then they end up on higher wages and if don't play well even tougher to get rid.

We should be looking to Denmark/ Sweden Italy Serbia Croatia good solid European markets

Our scouting is so lazy we should be aiming at potential international players not English league players that would get nowhere near English team ? we've been doing same thing for too long and results have been poor over that long period.

12.) 10 Nov 2022 18:25:34
We got battered 5-0 5-1 etc most times Halliday player come on now his record in old firms was horrendous.

13.) 10 Nov 2022 18:53:10
John am hearing the goalkeeper we are looking to be bringing in is Tom Heaton from Man Utd.

14.) 10 Nov 2022 19:22:28
Humph no name, will 87 has posted a name, I’m not sure we want a player that old as a first choice.

15.) 10 Nov 2022 20:06:42
He is a quality keeper hope this is true.

16.) 10 Nov 2022 20:31:04
Tom Heaton is 36 that would seem a strange signing.
Unless for a short term.

17.) 10 Nov 2022 21:22:04
Celtic fans used to sing Andy’s name.

18.) 10 Nov 2022 21:41:44
John, are you hearing keeper coming from EPL?

19.) 10 Nov 2022 22:15:12
He is still a quality keeper would be a great signing for this season and next then hopefully Mcgrorie.

20.) 11 Nov 2022 03:51:59
Gvb on Semenyo looks a decent enough prospect but I count see us signing him not a great goals return definitely cod play right side though a good link up player but I'd be curious to see how he would stand up against teams that have men behind ball all his best highlights in England seem to come from open game counter attacks which you don't get a lot of in Scotland he also has a contract till the end of 2023 with an option of a further year so looks like a non starter unles we want to pay stupid money.

21.) 11 Nov 2022 06:42:30
What i mean by Halliday. Is he's a rangers man n would run through a wall for us, set examples for others in the dressing room n knew what it was like too wear our jersey with pride weather bad or good played with passion and gave 100%, has rangers blood, like mcgregor, loves and supports rangers, hated too lose.

22.) 11 Nov 2022 09:46:44
Semenyo has bags of potential and out of contract in the summer. Deep lying forward, gets far more assists than goals. If we aren't looking at players like that then the scouting system is broken.

23.) 11 Nov 2022 10:16:14
Bankie no idea where keeper coming from, behind scenes we have been following an Eastern Europe goalie.

24.) 11 Nov 2022 11:57:53
@BlueDreamer - Were Laudrup, Gazza, or Albertz Rangers men? No, but they were some of the best payer we’ve ever had.

There’s a myth that players need to be Scottish, or Rangers fans. Like Doran’s, Murphy, Halliday, etc? We signed players like that and we were horrific. What we need is good players regardless of who they support or where they come from. It’s our job to make those players fall in love with this club when they get here.

I don’t care how much Halliday likes Rangers. He was never good enough and we should never sign someone of that quality again. We were European finalists 6 months ago. Kamara was worth £10m last summer. We should have a player like Evander next to him for £8m. We need to think much bigger than ‘squad players’, ‘he could do a job’, ‘he’s a good Rangers man’. Can he play football is what we need to ask!

25.) 12 Nov 2022 06:09:04
Rabbi while it's technically true his contract is up they do have the option to extend it another year so he's not really out of contract as soon as anyone is interested all they need to do is activate clause and demand fee.

26.) 12 Nov 2022 06:12:41
I agree verdant on your recruitment thoughts. think our scouting way too lazy and shopping in English market for players that big teams don't want down there makes us no better than what hearts Hibs Aberdeen and other spl teams are doing.

I do however think it is good (not necessary) to have a true rangers fan in squad to help fire team on.

27.) 12 Nov 2022 08:49:22
Agree verdant. But look at my post i said we need some scottish players like the passion of Halliday and mgregor too give our team a bit of passion n spine, of corse gazza n laudrup where amazing. Some of the best players we have ever had. But nobody in our team could lace their boots, exept davis who is exceptional, but getting on a bit now. yeah mate we need great players All i'm trying too say is we have barley a scotsman , example Barry Ferguson grass roots, scottish who knows what it mean too play for us

We are losing daft games in the leauge too formidable Scottish apponnents. Some of the forign guys can't cut the pace of our game so we need a mix i agree we need too spend Good cash too compete more in Europe but you still need a few Scott's who know and can play our game here

But our bread n butters the spl
N if we can't win points here we don't get into europe

Gazza where phenomenal players mate total diffrent class but they where still mixed in with class scotsmen
Ferguson for instance

You need a good mix. My point is always good too have scots players in the scots league. .

28.) 12 Nov 2022 17:11:04
Blue Dreamer, I fully agree. The problem that I see is that our current Board and Scouting just doesn't look capable of identifying and signing players of the quality you mention and I am quite sure that they are still there is leagues that we do not appear to have the knowledge of.

Similarly, we don't identify young Scottish talent or even target Scots that are playing in England and internationally. Perhaps it is as simple as they don't have the right Agent since Wilson seems to have his favourite contacts!

One look at the players available on Bosmans shows that the quality is there. Players of a similar standing to those signed by Souness, Smith and Advocat. Question is, does our current Manager and our Current Chairman have the charisma to convince these players to sign for us or are we only allowed to sign players identified by Wilson!



14 Jul 2022 19:25:55
Herewego stated that you" can win penalties and free kicks"
I am still waiting on him to tell HOW!

Spanish John

1.) 14 Jul 2022 20:01:49
Strange question to ask.

Are you asking someone to tell you how to win pens and free kicks?

2.) 14 Jul 2022 20:25:35
I feel your pain Spanish and it must be absolute torture playing the waiting game. I feel so blessed and lucky that i await no explanations from anyone at the moment.

3.) 14 Jul 2022 22:33:59
Laughing out loud here love it!

4.) 14 Jul 2022 22:49:16
I've just seen this in my defence, but how can you not win a pen. You beat your opponent with a bit of skill you win a pen? That's surely like saying rangers didn't win any matches last season, our opponents lost them all. Or I didn't win 130 quid on a coupon last night the bookies lost it ?. Strange thing to be getting upset about mate is I not? .

5.) 15 Jul 2022 10:48:09
Enjoying the exchange of view Herewego. I agree with your take on getting a penalty. But you don't get penalties just because you skillfully beat an opponent, you only get given a penalty if your opponent fouls you and the fact then is that he has CONCEDED a penalty and referee has awarded it.
If your not fouled and you get a penalty then you are cheating.
All the best to you and yours from sunny Spain.

6.) 15 Jul 2022 10:55:00
Herewego, I should say I'm not upset.

Stadium not to be open for start of season. Reason DELAY in delivery of steel from Asia, surely this material could have been sourced locally. Plenty in west of Scotland would surely been a better option.

Spanish John

1.) 20 Jun 2024 15:09:38
They ain’t plenty of option anymore and rangers wouldn’t have got the material.

2.) 20 Jun 2024 15:12:33
Material from Asia is some of the worst out there.

3.) 20 Jun 2024 15:16:37
Spanish john the price of steel and materials is night and day from sourcing local.

4.) 20 Jun 2024 15:37:03
What do you mean with that Storm? I run a Fabrication company in Scotland and this is a disgrace.

5.) 20 Jun 2024 15:46:49
The steel is currently at my work of place BHC limited
It’s currently in the paint shop waiting to get painted.

6.) 20 Jun 2024 16:11:46
Yately why not get your company to supply the steel then.

7.) 20 Jun 2024 16:14:22
Probably cost of steel in Britain too steel in Asia? Though I wouldn’t really know, but why else would they buy the steel from abroad?

8.) 20 Jun 2024 16:41:19
John I'm sure yately would supply steel if we paid him and it is a joke our club have to delay playing at home because of this it makes us as a club. look amateurish.

9.) 20 Jun 2024 16:52:46
Once again our "penny pinching" will end up costing us long term.

10.) 20 Jun 2024 17:30:02
It’s not penny pinching .

When I am buying a product am looking for the cheapest price why would you l not?

Liverpool stand they just built ran behind schedule it happens some fans just like to have a go
And be angry.

11.) 20 Jun 2024 17:36:30
Agree 100% storm, everyone is buying the same product at a cheaper price.

12.) 20 Jun 2024 17:41:54

14.) 20 Jun 2024 18:23:01
One Walter great we now have steel experts on here.

We r amateurs,

15.) 20 Jun 2024 18:44:53
we ranted at dundee have a pitch not
playable we have to go begging to
use some one else stadium beggars belief.

16.) 20 Jun 2024 19:07:44
John, it’s an embarrassing situation and am sure you can see that?

17.) 20 Jun 2024 19:20:42
The club is a laughing stock these days.

18.) 20 Jun 2024 19:23:08
It’s a poor situation having to play games elsewhere for start of season, certainly wasn’t planned, whether they use a foreign company or Scottish company for steel is irrelevant now, it’s been a balls up that will cost the club having to pay for a stadium short term.

19.) 20 Jun 2024 19:24:17
Surely it's up to the contractor to choose the source of the steel and not rangers, you wouldn't say to a builder I want you to build me a house and I want the blocks from Scotland ??‍♂️.

20.) 20 Jun 2024 20:20:31
Yately, not for rangers, mb for company doing the job

Exactly sir Walter.

21.) 20 Jun 2024 20:36:33
Cifuentes you better get painting mate stop posting on here ?.

22.) 20 Jun 2024 22:12:59
John don't u think it's embarrassing and as far as your dig as steel experts what if others no more than you is that a bad thing, our board not just on this but over past while have been acting like they run a local team not 1 of Europe's biggest and I'm sorry you don't see that.

23.) 21 Jun 2024 08:25:07
I admit I don't know much about this conversion work, but, any contract with the builders should surely include late completion penalty clauses, as John said, it makes us look like Amateurs.



21 Apr 2024 15:00:25
Not impressed by the squad. No youngsters and at least 7 who hopefully will not be with the famous next season.

Surely should have been an opportunity to give some the youngsters some hope for a future with us. Still a good win and an OF final to win.

Spanish John

1.) 21 Apr 2024 17:02:44
A semi with a team coming off back of 2 poor games isn't the place for a youngster but I do want to see more of rice and mcKinnon.

2.) 21 Apr 2024 18:36:40
I must have missed something, didn't we win comfortably today against the 3rd placed team while the magnificos from the East End beat the 3rd bottom team on penalties, and the 3rd bottom team were robbed, just saying like.



19 Apr 2024 10:36:24
Here's a thought. Why do we spend much needed cash on a youth system that does not produce any that game time.
Are they no good?
Does PC not want to give any of them a decent chance, not the odd few mins.?
Barcelona, Real Madrid, PSG, Liverpool, Arsenal, Man. U, Chelsea all have REGULAR staters who are under 21 some even under 18, yet we persist with same injury prone serial losers. Who keep letting us down and drawing salaries they don't merit.
Rant over. let's get better for rest of season.

Spanish John

1.) 19 Apr 2024 12:48:55
Because all of the clubs mentioned take the best players who have a chance of making it from youth teams like ours. Gilmour Patterson Wilson etc. were all good but Patterson only just broke through and was poached then the other 2 went as soon as they turned 16.

2.) 19 Apr 2024 12:52:20
When you are starting for the teams you have mentioned then they are a class above anything in Scotland.
Any that are decent are head hunted from down South.
But we should be producing more that can enhance the first team when we are struck by injuries or poor performances.



11 Apr 2024 18:33:49
Just seen on news game v Dundee may possibly be played behind closed doors.
Does the absence of fans miraculously make pitch playable?
This farcical situation only highlights how poorly the authorities running the SPFL are.

Spanish John

1.) 11 Apr 2024 19:52:48
I'd it needsplayed behind closed doors it won't be at dens park. your completely missing the point i'm afraid. will be at a neutral stadium.

2.) 11 Apr 2024 21:00:11
I know . But what is reason for no fans?

3.) 11 Apr 2024 23:06:16
I thought the reason for no fans was they would potentially play the game a short notice and probably wouldn’t give fans enough time to make arrangements and also would disrupt them again if the had to call it off again?

4.) 11 Apr 2024 23:32:21
4000 Rangers Fans have paid for tickets for this game, this is now becoming even more farcical.



03 Mar 2024 11:02:47
First post for a while.
Why have we given up the in swinging corners? Lots of corners yesterday, all out swingers and ZERO success, surely we should have sense to use both and stop being so predictable.
I like Stirling but he's not a winger.
Hope Hearts can get something today but I'm not sure.

Spanish John

1.) 03 Mar 2024 12:48:40
PC prefers outswingers.

2.) 03 Mar 2024 12:58:27
I think the problem is how far out of position Tav and yilmaz are if we lose possession on inswinging corners. They couldn’t be any further away from where they’re supposed to be.

3.) 03 Mar 2024 13:43:29
We have been usually inswimgers amd out swings with no luck.

4.) 03 Mar 2024 14:14:52
Alloa, it's up to our other players to be good enough to cover the space both tav and yilmaz leave the space as you say, while they're taking corners, the full backs can't be everywhere at the same time ?.

I really hope we can keep Butland, but as we all know money talks. It's a short career and if he like anyone else is offered double or more salary then he takes it, madness not to.
