Anyone know anything of psv leftback Frederick oppegard?
Apparently we’ve scouted him in rexnent weeks.


1.) 29 Dec 2023 05:50:11
21 yr old Norwegian LB.
Played 1 game for PSV this season.
valued around 500k.
Was on Oslo's books in the Norwegian league.
PSV must have seen something in the lad to snap him up at 18.
would cost us around 1m - 1.5m to buy.

Fun fact about P. S. V

They could have had a front 3 of Xavi Simmons, Fabio Silva, Malik Tillman, 3 players we have either had on loan or were contaced regards a loan, Xavi Simmons being the only 1 we didn't get on loan.

Tillmans value has increased to 12 mill from 5 mill since he left us 6 months ago.

2.) 29 Dec 2023 06:16:29
Kai Wagner will be a free agent from 1st jan 2024.
26 yr old German LB, valued at 5 mill, High chance he will sign for Red Star Belgrade they have been interested in signing him for a while now, perhaps we can pip them and get him.
has played 28 games this season, 1 goal, 7 assists.

3.) 29 Dec 2023 08:41:28
Asthor will know about the boy at psv.

4.) 29 Dec 2023 08:56:19
Asathor will be busy dodging polar bears in Svalvard lol!

5.) 29 Dec 2023 10:01:58
Oppegard shorter than yilmaz.

6.) 29 Dec 2023 11:10:15
Both 5 feet 9 john.

7.) 29 Dec 2023 11:19:58
We will need 2 left backs anyway. Barasic and Yilmaz will be gone by end of season. So wagner on a free with a 6 month window to impress before we sign another LB.

8.) 29 Dec 2023 11:20:09
I only care if the fan defend and attack why are we fixated on height.

9.) 29 Dec 2023 11:28:21
Storm Walter smith once said a good big one better than a good wee one, I suppose it’s an advantage defending set plays etc and of course attacking them.

10.) 29 Dec 2023 11:49:50
Jfm great info. Can you let his club know they have him as 5.83/ 4

But I’m sure u got the point, he’s too small for a lb, no wonder we post much less especially about transfers.

11.) 29 Dec 2023 11:50:53
Storm because everting we read is yilmas too small. Yet people talk up this guy.

12.) 29 Dec 2023 12:22:41
Omg John a quarter inch. Talk about pedantic.

13.) 29 Dec 2023 12:58:14
Jfm63 surely you see johns point though?

Teams have been targeting yilmaz in the air.

14.) 29 Dec 2023 13:30:34
I don't rate yilmaz anyway, not just his height.
Many want yilmaz in the team before Barasic.
Yeah I get the point but to dispute over 1/ 4 inch. ??.

15.) 29 Dec 2023 14:17:52
He did bgate and walter smith was bang on the money and who would argue against anything that guy stated ??.

16.) 29 Dec 2023 17:15:03
Jfm your the guy that’s disputing it. U said I was wrong by quarter of inch.

However looks like big signing by Wednesday, and I don’t mean height.



15 Oct 2023 00:58:28
Rumours in the press that Wayne Rooney has made Butland his no1 transfer target in January.

I’d be looking for minimum £10m for him.
I’d even say £12m

Dunno if they can afford that.


1.) 15 Oct 2023 01:02:03
They can't he's really going to spend all of his kitty and they have tighter spending rules anyway.

2.) 15 Oct 2023 01:36:54
Can’t see them affording him then mate.
Must be bs paper talk unless they think they can get him for £5m or something.
Not a chance.

3.) 15 Oct 2023 06:16:45
Butlands contract has a relativly low release clause, he will be gone in January unless, the new guy can work wonders before then.

4.) 15 Oct 2023 07:52:00
Teds so you know Butland release fee? i calling that bull.

5.) 15 Oct 2023 08:11:34
Birminghams owners can easily afford those sort of figures make no mistake about that.

6.) 15 Oct 2023 08:30:34
Wouldnt be surprised on the low release clause. We seem to be happy with 5-6mill offers. And JB can't be liking what he sees in front of him.

7.) 15 Oct 2023 08:49:10
We got him on a free and to get 6 million would be good business. I would rather keep him however wait and see.

8.) 15 Oct 2023 09:23:09
Think it'll fly in the face of him coming here in the first place. Also if he's got a low release he's not going to Birmingham premier teams will take him.

9.) 15 Oct 2023 09:31:18
If shrek wants our keeper jack butland he better come with big money and his pockets full to the brim ?.

10.) 15 Oct 2023 09:35:36
Iv also read he has a clause he can go for a low fee tbh he's one we should be tying down and building a defence around him.

11.) 15 Oct 2023 09:42:18
Lazy click bait journalism.

12.) 15 Oct 2023 10:26:37
BAR72 he won’t be liking what he’s seeing behind him either.

13.) 15 Oct 2023 10:31:42
I will get my granny to give Wayne a wee call. She says she knows him well from way back.

14.) 15 Oct 2023 11:16:37
Butland ain’t going anywhere in jan.

15.) 15 Oct 2023 11:47:40
Wages would also be an issue could they afford his wages.

16.) 15 Oct 2023 12:12:08
I wouldn't be so sure on butland he was on a free and we would have had competition so all the power in negotiations would have been with butland.

If he were to go with a fee i'd be ok with it if we are getting decent money we always seem to find decent keepers.

17.) 15 Oct 2023 13:02:47
Beale teds is correct release fee. I believe it’s around 4 million,

18.) 15 Oct 2023 13:50:08
Doubt we hold into him by next summer.

19.) 15 Oct 2023 13:51:40
If he wants to go and we get that fee for a guy that we signed for free then fair enough . I can`t see him leaving though because he`s disappointed about the defence in front of him, some of the games this season he`s had nothing to do and although he has been excellent he has made the odd mistake himself. Goldsons O. G v PSV was partly his fault. He`ll see himself as part of the team and want to improve things, not just leave because things haven`t gone great at the start.

20.) 15 Oct 2023 21:09:18
Butland is a top keeper and could do a lot better than Birmingham.

21.) 16 Oct 2023 17:19:00
John are u saying he has a clause of just £4m?

ThTs shocking man.

If that’s the case I would quickly offer him a new deal.
I’d offer him an extra year with an extra £5k a week and buyout clause of £12m.

22.) 16 Oct 2023 18:07:24
Stevie. That’s exactly what I’m saying, he lead all the negotiating cards.

So u woul
D offer him an extra three million to get rangers seven,
If I was chairman in England I’d offer four and bigger wage. He would be a fool to take extra deal

Remember he is very happy here and I’m not sure he would be hurry to leave.

23.) 17 Oct 2023 15:27:11
I could understand Butland wanting to leave for an EPL Side but Birmingham would be a step down if he wants to win trophies.

24.) 18 Oct 2023 05:34:46
I doubt very much he would see that deal out John, more likely be off sooner than later, so we wouldn’t be paying out £3m anyway, and obviously I’d offer what it would take to tie down our best player and maximise what we can get for him regardless anyway mate.



11 Oct 2023 14:13:08
Andy decline reporting on twitter

There’s a split in the boardroom regarding who to pick.

Muscat is slight favourite atm but there is a strong split down the middle of the boardroom as to who should get the job.

Not good if we have splits atm.

John, I think u had said in this scenario the chairman would have the casting vote.
Is this the case?


1.) 11 Oct 2023 15:04:31
To be honest I doubt Andy Devline knows anything. He’s merely guessing based on the fact that the process is still ‘ongoing’ and no one has been announced yet. However the board have already stated that they will take their time and it wouldn’t be a quick or rushed decision. He even actually stated that he ‘thinks’ or ‘feels like’ there might be a split in the boardroom. He’s just totally guessing just so he can churn out another story, just like all these so called journalists do. More than likely he has no idea what the board are or are not thinking.

2.) 11 Oct 2023 15:20:51
That’s how it happened re Beale. Bennett changed rules so chairman does not get two votes as park did.

My understanding is there are seven people who get a vote nowadays.
I’m told there is 100% no split.

3.) 11 Oct 2023 15:22:52
Good post Gers. I’d be more worried if all seven thought the same way.

Guys like Halstead wolthartd Johnston unlikely to have been fully updated at this stage.

4.) 11 Oct 2023 16:08:49
Cheers John good to know.

I did think it didn’t make sense being a split if there is a deciding vote.

Gers, I know what your saying re some of these journalists mate.
I think when I came to post, after doing so I noticed a few other similar posts regarding other journalists so thought maybe a truth to it.

I’ll rely on this site more than the papers that’s for sure.

Cheers guys ??.

5.) 11 Oct 2023 16:25:48
Hearing much the same re: Clement and Muscat.

The trading model that Mr Bisgrove had been vocal about is a key factor in the decisions to be made. The whole Muscat argument we’ve all read here about tapping into the Asian market for players like Ange etc is more valid for Bisgrove’s vision but not said to be the deciding factor.

The Clement appointment would supersede a DOF appointment. Giving him time to work with lathe tools he has with the DOF in before January as Clement is the opposite of Beale in regards to player recruitment.

Either man doing well fits in with the trading model if a more financially blessed team from south of the border fancy them after a good season or two.

All in all. I’ll be chuffed with either of these men in the brogues, scarf held overhead.

6.) 11 Oct 2023 17:20:13
So long as Parks Jnr., doesn't have the deciding vote we should be safe!
I can understand the Bisgrove Argument from a Commercial perspective of tapping into the Asian Market, but that only holds up if we equally secure the best football manager. I'm just not sure.
Of those that have been mentioned I am still hoping for Clement assuming that it is only him and Muscat that are now on the short list.

7.) 11 Oct 2023 17:41:47
Why would we need Muscat to tap into Asian Market dstar? Surley the scouts'can just go scout no?

Plus most the Tims Asian players are gash. Ideguchi, iwata, kobayashi, kwon, oh all gash. Only kyogo, madea, tattie made it kwang looks iffy also. So that's 3 success out of 9 signed! But yet the Press don't bring up those donkeys!

8.) 11 Oct 2023 17:43:43
I know Andy devlin I ain’t his biggest fan. But of a banger.

9.) 11 Oct 2023 18:42:19
Berkshire park is on this weeks interview panel alongside Bennett and Bisgrove.

10.) 11 Oct 2023 19:14:01
Famous - why would Michael Beale look at English players he worked with at youth level?

It’s not my blind assumption but a collective with the muskat connection.

I don’t see us ever scouting anywhere outwith England, Italy, Holland and Belgium in the last few seasons.

11.) 11 Oct 2023 20:26:56
Talks of a rift between the board have been squashed tonight by skysports.

12.) 11 Oct 2023 22:02:03
6 votes at the board John.
G Park

Bisgrove has no voting rights.



10 Oct 2023 18:18:11
Chris Jack reporting that rangers have made no decisions on who they want as manager yet and clement won’t be arriving in Glasgow tonight.


1.) 10 Oct 2023 20:00:08
Is there any truth in souness has been in the meetings while the interviews wer getting held.

2.) 10 Oct 2023 20:54:33
Supposedly mate souness has been strongly involved in the interview process, also supposedly sir Alex and big eck have both been asked for input on the matter.

3.) 10 Oct 2023 21:40:21
Stevie Fergie was asked after Celtic game, he has been laying low last three weeks.

4.) 10 oct 2023 23:35:42
difficult times for sir alex, my thoughts are with him now,

5.) 11 Oct 2023 00:03:56
Understandable John.
Thoughts with sir Alex and his family. ?.

6.) 11 Oct 2023 00:06:11
John can I ask u mate?

U say sir Alex was asked after Celtic game?
That’s around time people were saying he had gave ole Gunnar a reference to our board.

Would u say this is likely true then mate? That’s he suggested ole as a managerial option for us.

7.) 11 Oct 2023 10:37:05
Alex Ferguson as far as I understand did not recommend ole to rangers.

8.) 11 Oct 2023 11:52:22
I did rubbish it at the time it was floating about, especially with Beale still in job.
Think I said something like a man of Fergusons integrity (not word I used) wouldn’t be doing that with Beale still in charge.
Cheers John.



03 Oct 2023 15:47:45
Lampard has gone from 20/1 to 2/1 since earlier today.
He’s accounted for 86% of bets today according to oddschecker.

Dunno what to make of that, but seems the bookies are catching onto something.

Anyone hearing anything regarding lampard?


1.) 03 Oct 2023 17:06:08
Do not want him but if he gets it I will support him.

2.) 03 Oct 2023 17:18:12
I certainly hope he is not under consideration? PLEASE NO.

3.) 03 Oct 2023 17:13:30
Apparently 4 candidates all shown interest Lampard, Muscat, Jensen and Wilder. one in talks held yesterday.

4.) 03 Oct 2023 17:14:13
Really hope he isn't considered, a guy that wouldn't be considered for any job if his name wasn't Frank Lampard. Hard pass from me.

5.) 03 Oct 2023 17:15:32
Lampard is not the man for this job imo. Phillipe Clements name being mentioned that would be my choice, followed by Muscat. we need a manager that isn’t afraid to ruffle a few feathers.

6.) 03 Oct 2023 17:16:49
Lampard would be a disastrous appointment.

7.) 03 Oct 2023 17:22:13
No thanks - nothing to see here, move along please. High risk disaster waiting to happen - no budget big enough for him.

8.) 03 Oct 2023 17:28:31
I'm not keen on Lampard, although no one can make the Everton job work and he was under transfer embargo at Chelsea, still for me it's a no. I like Jansen or possibly Gallardo but it's a risk for them all, 2 defeats and they're getting booked, the only thing that will work, is someone to come in a play entertaining football from the off, think the fans would be more tolerant if they had some dodgy results but we were looking good.

9.) 03 Oct 2023 17:37:38
Yeah lads I’m not so sure on lampard either, he did bring a lot of the kids thru at Chelsea and done extremely well there imo.
For me that’s a cursed job anyway but I thought he done well at Chelsea.

Would be a risk for sure but least he has decent amount of experience whereas Gerrard never and he worked.

I’d rather someone else but I’m not totally opposed to Lampard.
Just thought I’d post that as it’s quite a strange situation.
Maybe he was the on an interviewed yesterday n that’s what’s caused the spike.

I’d imagine it will be the international break when we get someone in.
Surely we’re going to interview a lot of bodies before making an appointment.

10.) 03 Oct 2023 17:40:24
Lampard comes then it's game over for me.

11.) 03 Oct 2023 17:47:26
Im not really kean on lampard but saying that I wasn't sure about the gerrard appointment either but I'll back who ever we appoint.

12.) 03 Oct 2023 17:49:13
I would go for Dean Smith or Lamaprd.
Foreign bosses don't float my boat!

13.) 03 Oct 2023 17:50:10
The odds come down because of bets being placed.

14.) 03 Oct 2023 17:51:38
55 who did we ta, k to today.

15.) 03 Oct 2023 17:56:38
Been doing a bit of reading on pascal Jansen and although I'm not in favour of him as an appointment he certainly fits clubs strategy would also be more likely to give you players a chance by all accounts.

16.) 03 Oct 2023 18:00:49
Pick one John, 25% chance you'll get it right! ?.

17.) 03 Oct 2023 18:20:59
Given that I saw serial loser McInnes mentioned as a favourite today I am quickly reaching the stage that I will take anyone other than him. If he is the level that we are even considering we really don't have any ambition!

18.) 03 Oct 2023 18:27:04
I don't see it StevieG2, especially as he's been proven to be a dud manager. Surely not?
Just for affect, but If Lampard did get the job, then I'm out, and my ticket is going on seatsub. I really can't take it anymore, I just don't have it in me.

19.) 03 Oct 2023 18:32:58
Bookies be like


20.) 03 Oct 2023 18:33:22
Mike I know that’s how it works bro but the amount of bets being placed on him is quite astonishing considering he was 20/ 1 just a couple of hours prior.

The bookies normally take that as tips are flying about and shorten the odds but from 20 to 2s is quite a change in 1 hour mate.
86% of bets.

Sounds like there’s some inside info being passed about in that sense.

21.) 03 Oct 2023 18:35:25
I think it's time to really think about this n go all out for a decent track record n hopefully a real knowledge of the Scottish game, n it's time we get a Scottish element back into our team.

Recent seasons we have overlooked Scottish talent or players proven n playing well here too bring in guff under performance players from abroad we wasted money too bring in danilo dessers ext
When we had guys doing it already

We got rid of our top performers

N got rid of guys who where better
Colak n sakala

We overlooked portous, nisbit ferguson just some of many right under our noses

Vanveen n Shanklind
Plying there trades in Scotland

All we heard not rangers quality

Bull cause the only guy who deserves our top is butland on his performances

We need to be more astute n get someone who will command a tune n make n get the best of what we have n on a budget

My point we have been failing n making rash decisions, so I will be happy to wait n make sure ? we get it right.

22.) 03 Oct 2023 18:41:33
The odds market is dictated by the bets placed.

Lampard was asked about it and didn’t rule it out plus a couple of rags have said he’s in the running, so many people will have seen he was 20/ 1 and thought that represents some value. The more that’s bet on him, the smaller those odds will get. The bookies haven’t been handed inside info, they are protecting themselves based on all the bets placed at high odds.

I don’t think he will get it.

23.) 03 Oct 2023 18:45:35
Correct Mike Ger, could make anyone odd drop significantly with 1000 pounds on them

Foolmonty my info we spoke to no one for the job, I’m not saying poster is wrong just wondering if he had name.

Bisgrove allegedly flew south and met souness In London hotel.

24.) 03 Oct 2023 19:54:07
I wanted Lampard to succeed Gerrard because I thought he would keep the club going in the same direction however after his poor record at Everton and his stint helping out at Chelsea when he let his heart rule his head and took on a no win job, I think he is spoiled goods now. English Championship and SPFL managers don`t inspire me and would be a sign of a lack of ambition.

25.) 03 Oct 2023 20:04:06
Sorry John was just told we were in talks yesterday at length with 1 of the above. Montys right though its not much more to go on the rest are apparently paper talk. Ill try find out.

26.) 03 Oct 2023 20:04:51
The reason for that is the amount of cash being big on lampard drops the odds just like horse racing or the dugs.

27.) 03 Oct 2023 20:24:32
Cool 55, good info.

28.) 03 Oct 2023 20:30:24
When I say the rest paper talk outside that 4 it's paper talk.

29.) 03 Oct 2023 20:41:03
Here’s hoping your all wrong and it’s Souness for manager.

30.) 03 Oct 2023 20:49:42
Souness ain’t going to be the manager.




StevieG2_'s banter posts with other poster's replies to StevieG2_'s banter posts


30 Dec 2023 23:43:20
I feel clement got it wrong today, he seemed to try and surprise Celtic by attacking up the left all day instead of our usual right, anyone else notice this?
Yilmaz is hopeless he had a cheek to blow out his arse with 5 mins to go after posting missing from a diagonal ball
We reverted to attacking from the right after the goal or maybe just before, and tav whipped 3 balls in winning 2 coerners in 5 mi utes. , again, anyone else notice this?

I love clement think he’s a great manager, but he got it wrong today, should’ve took dessers off out sima thru middle and put on wright for his pace.

Anyway we go again.


1.) 31 dec 2023 02:23:26
yilmaz will never be good enough stevie, but he did try hard, and gave what he had, not a rangers lb ever imo, and I've said that since his first couple of games, entire defence needs changed and has done for years now.

2.) 31 Dec 2023 04:11:17
I’ve said for a while now we have a link up problem down left sima is not a natural winger and yilmaz seems to be on a different wavelength to others around him mcausland on right is our only bright spark at the moment and is playing a lot better than people giving him credit for.

3.) 31 Dec 2023 09:52:19
Yilmaz was one of our better players yesterday.



29 Dec 2023 20:03:53
Are we expecting Sterling to start in mf tomorrow with lunny?
Lunny will demand to play half fit or carrying a k ice he’ll take an injection we know what he’s all about.
My team for tomorrow

Tav Goldson Davies borna
Lunny Sterling
Mccausland sima


1.) 29 Dec 2023 20:08:41
Balogun in for Davies accept from that the same team for me.

2.) 29 Dec 2023 20:09:32
I’d go the same except Balogun for Davies.

3.) 29 Dec 2023 20:10:50
Stevie think Dowell starts mate.

4.) 29 Dec 2023 20:11:10
Great team but Balogun in for me. but davies is fine too--cheers stevieG2.

5.) 29 dec 2023 20:13:47
carter vickers out, big news, bonus imo, hatate is a danger, needs nullified along with kyogo and mcgregor, european style tactics

this is the time when the rangers supporting players and coaches on your team come to the fore, on the bus, in the enemy ground, dressing room etc

giving it all they've got and showing what it means to rangers family, we sorely need them.

6.) 29 Dec 2023 20:15:58
Got to be balogun over Davies ?????? Lunny back would be a bonus and we always need Goldson so if he plays also then brilliant ??????.

7.) 29 Dec 2023 20:18:45
Is Balogun injured, Stevie? Why Davies before Balogun? Davies never starts before a fit Balogun!

8.) 29 Dec 2023 20:23:03
Davies? Wtf.

9.) 29 Dec 2023 20:25:12
Swap Davies for Big Balogun and that’s my team. Dowell in if Lundstrum doesn’t make it. If Goldson is dodgy I’d play Souttar. Don’t want to risk any players who are not 100%.

10.) 29 Dec 2023 20:35:43
I agree mate balogun instead he totally escaped my mind for some reason
I was thinking there’s another ch I’m missing n he escaped my mind ??.

11.) 29 Dec 2023 20:36:25
Wouldn’t have Davies anywhere near that team tomorrow. Balogun for me. Fairly happy with Sterling in the middle but is there any word on Ryan Jack? any chance he’s available?

12.) 29 Dec 2023 21:17:52
Dowell never started the cup final when we had lundstram fit and a rb started in midfield before him. He isn't playing on the wing either?‍♂️ so why would he start v celtic?

13.) 29 Dec 2023 21:25:29
Coldo in my opinion Dowell starts.

14.) 29 Dec 2023 22:10:28
Dowell isn’t the answer I don’t rate him or like him as a player.
I’d rather move him on asap.

15.) 29 Dec 2023 22:20:55
I'd also rather have Balogun than Davies tomorrow.

16.) 29 Dec 2023 22:22:20
The surprise in tomorrow could possibly be sterling out wide for mccausland ( for better cover for tav or swap with tav ) and dowell in centre for his dig and through balls.

17.) 29 Dec 2023 22:27:36
If Lunny is fit dowell won’t start I don’t think. Hatate will he be match fit been out for a few weeks Abada as well.

We need to press high and don’t give McGregor anytime on the ball and we have a great chance.

My Star if Lunny is fit who does Dowell come in for? U changing the shape or going with Dowell over Sterling? If Lunny is fit he’s got to play. Cantwell to fill McGregor spaces off the ball and I can’t see Dowell play as our 10. Some big calls to be made and LB is one of them as they attack down the flanks. Borna over Ridvan for me as they don’t like balls whipped into their box.

Storm, completely agree on tactics tomorrow.

Is hetate no injured?

21.) 30 Dec 2023 09:37:14
Raskin, just back I believe.

Hypothetical question here

Would people be for or against rangers (old firm) joining England at the 2nd division level and by paying a fee either each year or one off payment to the clubs in league 1 and 2 for the right to join the league?

Ed can u put that to poll mate?

We’re never going to get into championship or premier so that’s only way we get in.

Rangers in England poll

1.) 23 Dec 2023 10:44:03
There’s a few reasons why Rangers or Celtic would not get into the English leagues or at least find it very hard, (1) they are massive clubs and teams in England wouldn’t want to take a chance in not achieving the promised land of the EPL, the money is unbelievable. (2) the two clubs have a bad reputation when it comes to sectarian chants etc, it’s something that the English clubs would take up on as an excuse, I know and you know that’s it’s a small minority that does this but it’s enough for someone on a mission to stop us joining their league?

2.) 23 Dec 2023 10:44:38
I think the English league pyramid starts a lot lower than division 2. We’d have 4 or 5 seasons of national league’s to navigate through first.

3.) 23 Dec 2023 10:57:22
How would we get in division 2 surely those teams in the 5th league (1st non league) would be against it. For it to work we would need to join the bottom league and work up.

4.) 23 Dec 2023 11:07:50
I know its hypothetical but let's look at some ramifications. Lower prize money, no European Football money for at least 3 years, player quality would go down for 2 years, imo it would almost certainly put our club close to administration if not straight in to and we would need to rebuild over a number of years to get back just like we have done recently, I think your 2 leagues out with the question, Championship yes.

5.) 23 Dec 2023 11:17:30
They would not want it because in 10 years rgey would be the biggest clubs in the league might not be winning it but how many Man City bars you seen in Spain the old firm is massive and if given the epl platform i believe they would be in the top 10 biggest clubs in the world in a matter of years.

6.) 23 Dec 2023 11:20:33
No way we’re getting a pass into league 2.

7.) 23 Dec 2023 13:55:47
My only concern would be operating funds with no European football income for a few years and the price of players down South. I also feel that something has to change, the Scottish Leagues are getting boring with the lack of investment from outside.

8.) 23 dec 2023 15:25:50
if it happens, it most likely, will not happen that way

rangers won't be in spl in 10 to 15 years imo

but they certainly won't be playing in no english 3rd or 4th tier that's for sure, think some fans believe that's the plan, absolutely no way will that happen,

if it happens that the major forces sky etc, want the old firm involved, they certainly wouldn't take the chance of them both failing to climb the ladder quickly, because depending on curcumstances, they could be there fir years trying to get up to the top div, no way.

9.) 23 Dec 2023 15:27:55
The time to apply for England was when Scotland didn't want us on 2012.



14 Dec 2023 22:41:57
Outstanding result
Credit to the players, they’ve took some abuse and slagging all season, we’re in the league cup final, finish top of a very hard European group.
Win game in hand and we’re 2 points behind Celtic.

Not bad for the worst rangers team people have seen.

Great result.


1.) 14 Dec 2023 23:03:21
Correct stevie, some of the comments on here was absolutely ridiculous, hope we see the same posters on congratulating the boys for that effort tonight ?.

2.) 14 Dec 2023 23:07:06
Very typical of Rangers…. drop 4 points against worst team in group and beat best team in group twice.

We do love the Europa league.

3.) 14 Dec 2023 23:34:30
Well said Stevie.

4.) 15 Dec 2023 00:02:53
Unreal tonight ?????? finishing top will see us play someone from the play offs :

Group winners and into the last 16: Atalanta, Bayer Leverkusen, Brighton, Liverpool, Rangers, Villarreal, Slavia Prague, West Ham.

Seeded in play-offs: Freiburg, Marseille, Qarabag, Rennes, Roma, Sparta Prague, Sporting Lisbon, Toulouse.

Unseeded in play-offs: Benfica, Braga, Feyenoord, Galatasaray, Lens, Milan, Shakhtar Donetsk, Young Boys.

New image uploaded to the
Rangers Player Sightings page entitled, Had a wee look at this lads and see tbh, it’s shocking recruitment. Absolutely shocking. The only player in that list with pass marks from £40m is a free transfer goalkeeper. Absolutely shocking

What a colossal failure not a single person is really worth talking about.

2.) 01 Dec 2023 17:40:44
Noone. Yet lots of punters seem more intent to slag Lundstrum, Goldson and Tav. Not saying these guys are up there with legends of the past, but they are better than and have more heart that the injury prone heartless dross we have signed.

3.) 01 Dec 2023 17:41:19
Sorry, butland's exempt from that. He's been outstanding.

4.) 01 Dec 2023 17:50:58
Sima and Tillman both loans and have shown more than some on that list.

5.) 01 Dec 2023 18:03:44
Butland is the standout on that list, and that's it. Dessers, Lammers, Dowell and Sterling have been dire signings. Sima blows hot and cold, but not our player, and will be off next season. Danilo has got talent, but not proving his worth. Balogun is too old, and injury prone. Raskin will make it with us. Cantwell has talent, but PC doesn't like him, and there seems to be a trend with him from his previous clubs. Lawrence has a chance, and will probably make it. Yilmaz is running out of time, Souttar can be a calamity. Motondo is rapid, but he's very careless with the ball. Davies isn't the answer.

So two definite successes, and one who will most probably make it. That's not good at all, is it?

6.) 01 Dec 2023 18:03:52
Definitely a poor list, really reall your opens your eyes as to just how well we done under Gerrard imo.

Since Gerrard left we’ve totally went on a downward spiral in all aspects of the football dept.

7.) 01 Dec 2023 19:04:59
Howwazthat, lundstrum Goldson and Tav have been making the same mistakes for years and are part of the problem that’s why they get it.

8.) 01 Dec 2023 19:28:47
StevieG2 couldn't agree more regarding Gerrard, we played high press football wing backs firing crosses in going unbeaten in league, etc obviously the Europa league run with GVB at the helm was an amazing achievement considering the players in that tournament these days, however our player recruitment since then has damaged our identity as a club, no fight, no desire, no heart, no skill, we are rangers come on tae f. let's sort this mess out.

9.) 01 Dec 2023 19:32:15
Head and shoulders above the rest storm.

10.) 01 Dec 2023 19:42:13
Couldn't agree more stormtrooper.

11.) 01 Dec 2023 19:48:52
Who are the folk scouting these players, who's putting their names forward for the board and Co to sign?

12.) 01 Dec 2023 20:25:24
Storm I agree big time been saying it for ages good To see you catching on ?

To be fair to lundstrum he had prob been second best player under Clement behind only butland

Still nothing on a new deal from him though.

We made mistake of signing guys that didn't make the step up in bigger leagues dessers/ Lammers or let's face it players other teams of high standing didn't want.

And we overpay something else I've been telling you all for a while now they see rangers coming a mile away and the desperation and ask more.
3.5million for lammers who scores 2 goals a season lol mugs

5million dessers mugs.

13.) 01 Dec 2023 20:37:12
I totally agree Howwazthat ?They are easily head and shoulders above the rest ain't no doubt about that ?.

14.) 02 Dec 2023 04:10:52
I think a lot of us are being very short sighted and vindictive after the last few games, Cifu has moved 10K miles to a country where he doesn’t speak the language, Balogun is on less than Leon King P/ W and probably our 2nd best CH ATM, Danilo’s progress has been hampered by injuries so far, Sima has been our best outfield player this season, Matondo was just coming onto a game when he got his last injury, then Lawrence and Raskin are a cut above but have been hampered by injuries. Do half you guys even support the team?

I feel bb is better than ridvan storm.
Ridvan has a lot to prove before he can be judged better than bb.
If we stick with those 2 until summer and ridvan has nailed down the shirt and doing a proper great job then I will change my opinion.
I base my opinion on players over long periods not just a few games.
Hopefully ridvan keeps up his good performances and we have a player on our hands.
If that was the case then we could still keep bb for another year as back up and save spending money on a position we may not need to.

Abu Dhabi is normally a very good poster on here, notmally has quite a bit of good info.
Anyone giving him a hard time here is just jumping on the bandwagon.

I’ve been wanting us to go for Doig since he was at hibs, the reason I’m
Not so much now is after reading his numbers, 2 assists in 34 starts. Really isn’t good is it?
Tom had said perhaps Verona play a diff type of football and he’s not swinging crosses in, but I’d expect more numbers from my fullback.

For me barasic is better than ridvan atm.

I’d be happy to do a 6 month loan swap with Doig and ridvan and re assess in summer.
Preferably for me barasic gets a years extension we sell ridvan for €5m and sign a 1st choice left back for next season.
Who that is I do not know.

I don’t feel either of the 2 are good enough to be first choice left back for us.

I’d have liked to see Matondo in 2nd half of season if I’m honest. Davies can go if a replacement is found. And only then:
Lammers can go today.
Cheers John.

I worry Cantwell is the new Kent.
End product flatters to deceive.
I would actually sell Cantwell in summer for a suitable price.
What do we think is the magic number for Cantwell as it stands?
For me it would be £8m
Realistically, though I would even consider £6/7m.

Souttar is good to have as back up and for Scottish quota for Europe. He makes sense to have in the squad but he’s not the best defender. Loses too much in the air which leads to goals.

Dowell is no good, he’ll be gone in the summer as I predicted when he signed.
