Less secure astriker on loan from Arsenal to replace Roofe. Hopefully their link to Kent is affected by this news.
I know he's a different playing position but hopefully the wages and potential loan fee limits available budget to attract Kent with the FFP rules and Leeds spending.

1.) 08 Aug 2019 12:03:15
Kent ain't coming back. Get over it.

2.) 08 Aug 2019 13:55:48
i like kent as much as the next ger. but u would think he's messi the way some of us go on about him. done very little tbh.

3.) 08 Aug 2019 14:21:04
Very little Get a grip!

No he isn't Messi thanks for pointing that out! But he was instrumental in getting us points. The most positive direct player we had and we are missing that now that He has gone and also Candeias.


4.) 08 Aug 2019 15:41:57
am sorry, what did we win last year. so he's direct so is joness n murphy. at best he's exciting to watch, every few games he lives upto the hype.

5.) 08 Aug 2019 17:28:32
Giez piece! Jones can’t lace his boots.

6.) 08 Aug 2019 17:37:18
Rab. rfc. drum he was our best outfield player in every old firm game lasted season, 2 out of the 4 he was unplayable and a few other games as well he was unplayable, had a lot of good games and some mediocre ones, to say he done very little is just blatant lying. Yes he probably ain't coming back especially since we are signing Brandon Barker but let's not make stuff up just for the sake of it.

7.) 09 Aug 2019 21:11:14
Correct Gdog👍.

Rangers reject £10 bid plus add ins and sell on clause for Alfredo from West Brom.

1.) 08 Aug 2019 01:50:11
Where are you reading this? can't find anything?

2.) 08 Aug 2019 05:11:00
Just seen it now although not sure how real.

3.) 08 Aug 2019 06:17:24
£10 plus add ons worth a bit more than a packet of favs is our wee Alf 😂.

4.) 08 Aug 2019 06:29:52
well if glass hips is worth 25m and ain’t played for a year.

5.) 08 Aug 2019 08:25:03
Article in Record mate, like you say it’s authenticity has to be questioned at the moment.
Final day of transfers for EPL and Championship today with window closing at 5pm, hopefully Tav is still here and Morelos too unless there’s a late big money bid tabled.

6.) 08 Aug 2019 08:39:34
Maybe a reality check for Alfredo that know club has even looked at him apart from West Brom? Big season for him🇬🇧.

7.) 08 Aug 2019 08:49:56
Quite right 10 million should be laughed at.

8.) 08 Aug 2019 08:55:43
Personally even if west brom were to offer rangers say £15million + £2million in add ons today, i honestly don't think alfredo morelos himself, would want to go to west brom. I just don't see morelos going to a championship team. He would want at the very least, a lower half english premier league club, or a club from the spanish la liga, the german bundesliga etc.

9.) 08 Aug 2019 09:42:09
Coop, do you think Alfredo is good enough for EPL? I have my doubts and maybe I’m wrong 😌🇬🇧.

10.) 08 Aug 2019 10:37:21
Plenty of donkeys in the EPL, basically all the ones that aren't imports are poor players.



30 Jul 2019 09:02:35
Kent's representatives stating they feel a loan is still not out of the question despite Klopp stating he prefers to sell.
Been told last night Rangers are readying a loan to buy bid.
£2m loan Fee with option to buy for £5.5m at end of season.
I would have expected £2m loan fee anyway so £5.5m to buy him seems fair and realistic, I'd imagine Liverpool will want sell on etc but sounds plausible for me let's hope it materialises as he's final piece of jigsaw for me this season.

1.) 30 Jul 2019 09:43:01
No chance we will pay a two million loan fee.

2.) 30 Jul 2019 10:05:57
The £2m loan fee could be part of the package to buy Kent, effectively paying more now and the balance at the end of the season. Seems feasible enough.

3.) 30 Jul 2019 10:20:03
2 m loan is ok as long as some of it comes off the buy price.

4.) 30 Jul 2019 10:49:26
Dont agree with 2mill loan deal. Yea he did us a turn but are well covered in that dept. So for that. Am out.

5.) 30 Jul 2019 12:58:43
Nae bother Duncan bannatyne 🤣🤣.

6.) 30 Jul 2019 13:39:44
Paid liverpool 1 million last year for kent.

7.) 30 Jul 2019 13:46:08
Jeo53.Well covered in that dept? Yeah in terms of numbers, but certainly not quality. Kent is absolutely miles better than any other wide player we have.

I don't believe a 2m loan fee with option to buy but I hope it's true. He'd be a steal for that.

8.) 30 Jul 2019 16:17:52
How can anyone state that Kent is better than our other wide players when the others have only played a handful of games?

Kent arrived last year with a tarnished reputation and took a while to get into his stride.

Our new signings have mainly performed better than Kent did in his first few games but already many on here have decided that they are not of the same quality.

Liverpool don’t feel that he is good enough for them to keep and I don’t yet see a queue of EPL teams rushing to buy him and yet we are wetting ourselves to get him signed - not for me.

9.) 30 Jul 2019 16:34:55
spot on DK19.

10.) 30 Jul 2019 16:50:53
That deal would make some sense that would be costing us 7.5mil for him. Liverpool may go for that if their price tag hasn't been met during the English window. Would be excellent piece of the business if we pull that off. Could keep him another season and double money if he kicks on again. I think he would finish off our attack providing morelos stays. Think we would have a bit of everything going forward and defenders would fear us again.

11.) 30 Jul 2019 17:41:55
A £1m loan Fee last season when he was out of sorts so £2m this season seems feasible to me especially if it’s basically coming off the balance to purchase.
Heard more than my fair share on Kent this summer do until it’s official it’s just another rumour but fingers crossed there’s something in it the more quality players we have the better.

12.) 30 Jul 2019 19:27:47
Were has it been confirmed that we paid 1m to loan Kent last season?

13.) 30 Jul 2019 19:42:53
Exactly the bear.

14.) 30 Jul 2019 20:26:32
For the record, Liverpool was getting 500k from Rangers for the Season!

Now there is no way he is worth 2m a season don't be silly!

Realistically Liverpool will be looking for 1m for this season I reckon we would be best moving on 👍.

15.) 30 Jul 2019 21:53:08
Yeah it was £500k fee and £10k weekly wages not just a 1 off fee of £1m.
Anyway let’s see if we can broker some sort of deal.

16.) 30 Jul 2019 22:29:58
I like Kent he's a good player and young enough to improve massively but you can see he is playing for the badge and that's worth millions to me straight off the bat.
In an ideal world i'd get him back on loan for around 1m with an option to buy at around 5m over a couple of years, get him on a 5 year deal. Failing that hopefully he will play reserves for a year and we get him for 2m next year we've got bags of wingers anyway!

17.) 31 Jul 2019 00:07:38
You're mental if you're not bothered about kent joining. Before i say this, i fully understand that they javent played many games yet, but ojo and hastie are pace merchants and not much else. Ojo doesn't look much better himself. Kent is far better than all 3. He 100% is the missing piece of our puzzle. We need him and a 3rd striker and the league looks tasty. Without them i think we will come up short in attack and inevitably the league.

18.) 31 Jul 2019 23:12:53
He ain’t worth 7.5 million as that’s what would be the totally sum and he certainly ain’t worth 2million loan fee.

19.) 01 Aug 2019 10:31:51
Can’t believe there are guys on here thinking we have better than Kent in that position. With regards to no EPL team coming in for him, Jones was on a free and an International player and yet nobody was clambering over themselves to get him.
Don’t think Murphy has what Kent has either.
Kent was young player of year for a reason last year.



21 Jul 2019 22:23:20
With Gerrard admitting Candeias exit is imminent he suggested we would be bringing in a replacement.
Any ideas who we could bring in guys?

1.) 21 Jul 2019 22:45:06

2.) 22 Jul 2019 10:56:03
kent too expensive and dosen't play in same position as candyman.

3.) 22 Jul 2019 11:35:45
Ojo on the right Kent on the left. both van play either flank, Kent is aw right foot. Ojos aw left lol.

4.) 22 Jul 2019 12:10:56
Of he course he can 6counties. Did you not watch kent arfield etc interchange between positions towards the end of last season😂👍.

5.) 22 Jul 2019 17:27:31
Coldo ojo right Jones left hardly spend millions on kent.

6.) 22 Jul 2019 17:45:58
It’s Gareth Bale. Seen some stuff on YouTube, he looks alright👍.

7.) 22 Jul 2019 17:52:26
Can’t see Kent coming back.

8.) 22 Jul 2019 19:25:06
6 counties what? You said kent can't play on the right and you are wrong. Why are you telling me that ojo plays on the right and jones plays on the left? Kent is better than both👍.

9.) 23 Jul 2019 00:46:29
Bryan1978 kent was two footed he used to take corners with left or right foot 😂😂 ojo is all left foot though.



20 Jul 2019 12:50:39
Not sure how much truth is in this as we have just sent McCrorie and Rossiter our on loan ourselves to trim CM a bit but heard off a few people that Billy Gilmour from Chelsea returning on a season loan is being explored by the club.
Don't shoot the messenger just passing on what Iv heard.
Did notice he was left out their squad to Japan now some of their 1st team players have returned so probably would be available.

1.) 20 Jul 2019 13:20:29
I heard this a while ago but don't see it happening.

2.) 20 Jul 2019 16:00:53
Would love to see it, but I think Lampard rates him highly.

3.) 20 Jul 2019 23:03:50
Gilmour is likely to hit the first team in Chelsea this season. He’s having a great preseason.

4.) 20 Jul 2019 23:04:37
Theglasgowranger hope your right mate.

5.) 21 Jul 2019 18:47:29
GAFG gilmour is a kid still.

6.) 21 Jul 2019 22:20:51
He might only be 18 but he trained with Rangers 1st team when he was 15, he was promoted to Chelsea 23s squad last year and was 1 of their best players.
He’s also played for Scotland U21’s a good few times as well.
I think he would be better than Greg Docherty and a good addition to our squad if we were to bring him in on loan.

7.) 22 Jul 2019 09:24:19
Gilmour chose to go, why develop him for Chelsea.
We have our own players.

21 Aug 2019 21:11:12
Rangers getting Ryan Kent hinges on qualification for group stage IMO and even then its far from a done deal.
If we don't then I'm certain there's NO chance of us purchasing him.
Personally I think we will qualify for group stage so there's still a chance.



01 Jul 2019 21:09:14
Morelos sold for a tasty fee, all fringe players sold or moved out on loan or mutual terminations, Kent bought, Skertal and Sturridge on FREE transfer Job done. if Carlsberg did transfer windows.

1.) 01 Jul 2019 21:54:13
I'd keep Morelos before I signed sturridge.

2.) 01 Jul 2019 22:06:07
Sturridge can't replace Morelos. He has been hampered with injuries and for that reason is a greater liability than Morelos imo.

Dont see the need for another senior centre half, particularly Skrtel who would demand a hefty wage. Goldson and Katic have to be our first choice pairing at centre half and the biy Edmundson is there for cover. McCrorie can play centre half too if needed in a crisis.

Kent is a must and although it looks like the only option for us is another loan, if we do get a large fee for Morelos I'd re invest it in Kent on a permanent deal and Defoe can be our main man next season. Would Gerrard be comfortable with Defoe and Stewart as our main striking options with Rudden, Hardie and Dallas there too? he's spoke about the boys from the academy being in contention for a first team push so maybe this season we will see some youngsters given the chance.

3.) 01 Jul 2019 22:53:38
I wouldnt want Alfredo to leave but think we play better as a team with Defoe leading the line. We won 8 games in a row when Alfredo was suspended for 3 games then a further 3 games but still missed the next 2 due to teams form.
The money raised to be spent on a permanent deal for Kent.
Sturridge remained injury free all of last season and as an impact striker from the bench would be great.

Stewart can do a job there aswell as covering Arfield in the 10 role.
We need 4 CBs yes I agree Katic and Goldson were best pairing last season but if 1 or both get injured we cant rely on Edmundson and McCrorie to fill in for games in Europe, or away to Hibs, Hearts, Celtic or Aberdeen etc. They might be good enough but McCrorie is a CM now and having only 1 natural CB as cover is too risky.

4.) 02 Jul 2019 00:12:06
Hardie off to Blackpool, rudden no where near good enough. What is it with folk harping on about youth all the time. If there good enough they will play. The ones you mentioned are not!

5.) 02 Jul 2019 07:16:00
If carlsberg done transfer windows there is no way i would be wasting 10mill plus on kent. he's just not worth the money.

6.) 02 Jul 2019 07:22:21
Sturridge is a no go! The injuries are all trivial he has and puts him out for months at a time and not many clubs will be in for him!

7.) 02 Jul 2019 08:21:31
We will sign another CH and as for rudden and dallas as cover, sorry but they are not ready yet, would love to be wrong but they haven't had a sniff of the first team yet. Not keen on Sturridge tbh, bags of ability but hasn't had a good run of games since Brendan left liverpool.

8.) 02 Jul 2019 22:52:08
Talking crap sell buffalo fur sturrage OMG .



12 May 2019 00:42:09
Apparently looking at both Wellbeck and Sturridge (if contract not renewed as looks likely)
I know both have had their fair share of injuries but with Alfredo almost certain to leave I'd happily welcome either, both great impact players to come on for Defoe.
Wages may be a stumbling block but Defoe's here already so never say never.

1.) 12 May 2019 04:58:49
Wellbeck and sturridge to come off the bench as impact players to replace Defoe 🙈hope your not too rough this morning mate there is a big game on.

2.) 12 May 2019 07:55:28
Wellbeck granddad was in the bomb disposal unit in WW1 his name was Stan Well Back
It’s the way I tell them,

3.) 12 May 2019 09:12:31
Sturridge is known as “ sicknote “ to the Liverpool supporters, if he gets hit with a feather he’s too sore to play, I know Wellbeck has his injury problems but at least he’s willing, Sturridge wouldn’t be an asset to Rangers, he’d be a hindrance. Most of my family are Pool supporters, they go over a lot to see them, and whilst they say Sturridge is a decent player, he has no heart.



31 Jan 2019 16:52:01
Unless there's some dramatic late movement in or out I'd imagine that's our business completed in this window.
Personally delighted we have kept all our key players and added 3 1st team squad players and 2 good Bosmans.
See Davis as being 1 of 4 that will be rotated in 3 midfield positions and Defoe as a super sub type.

1.) 31 Jan 2019 18:27:12
Mite get Kamara in this window but why so many mid fielders.

2.) 31 Jan 2019 20:24:48
Hope rossiter stays injury free and does well at bury, with him jack, Docherty, Mcrorie and kamara future looks good for our midfield.



15 Jan 2019 15:24:52
Been reported this morning that new Forest boss Martin O Neill is tipped to recall Joe Wirral. If he does I'd be happy to see McCrorie deployed as a CH now Davis has been brought into midfield role.
Especially now we might even go 2 up top the chances for McCrorie is middle of park may be limited.
For me he was a standout in last game V them in middle of park but with Jack, Davis, Arfield, Coulibaly and potentially Kamara before Dorrans returns from injury and Rossiter potentially on way out and Docherty still out on loan there's more than enough competition in there.

1.) 15 Jan 2019 16:04:18
O’Neil prob just takin joe away from us with no intention of playing him.

2.) 15 Jan 2019 16:09:36
Still have katic mccauley and goldson. mccrorie is hopeless at centre half. must definitely be used as a centre mid or nothing at all imo.

3.) 15 Jan 2019 16:25:13
Does anyone actually know if there is a recall clause? Generally if we paid a fee to loan the lad there normally isn’t a recall clause inserted.

4.) 15 Jan 2019 16:30:53
Yea Paul agree mcorrie no For centre half . didn’t suit him at all.

5.) 15 Jan 2019 16:49:07
Katic is the ready made replacement. Feedback from Tenerife is he that he is focused and in the zone.

6.) 15 Jan 2019 16:50:40
Young McCrorie never a centre half.

7.) 15 Jan 2019 17:21:18
Gerrard even said mccrorie as a centre half would have ruined his career yet people still want him there🤔.

8.) 15 Jan 2019 17:57:36
Young McCrorie is a cdm all day, every day and twice on a Sunday. He was born to play there and will never do as a centre back.

9.) 15 Jan 2019 19:01:32
Unless in the contract there is nothing o’neil can do to take him back. I wouldn’t lose sleep over it.

10.) 15 Jan 2019 22:08:18
Why would we play at McCrorie at centre half out of position when we have a good centre half Katic waiting in wings some people don’t half talk out their ahol.

11.) 16 Jan 2019 16:04:25
Correct Stewarty.

We are set to boost coffers with additional £10m due to qualification for Europa League.
We have agreed down payment of £2m and £4.5m to be paid in next 3 windows with £1m performance related bonuses due.
No Simon Jordan loan just an affordable well structured deal that I advised might happen on here ages ago.

We have 3 options already at LB. Flanagan who is naturally RB but against better sides when you just need to defend he does a great job, looks less convincing when sides play deep and he needs to do more on the ball.
Then we have Barisic who is average defensively but has a good delivery and is at great at set pieces probably better against weaker sides but jury’s still out.
Lastly we have Halliday who is a Mix of the 2, naturally Left footed and probably best passer of the 3 but average defensively although rises to the challenge against better opposition. Taylor not much better than either of these with playing for Rangers mentality still to prove do not worth paying for at this stage IMO.

Was hopeful we would ready a bid after Euro qualification but Gerard pretty much stated deal is dead recently.
I think we might try and buy or loan to buy in next window but unless there’s some last minute transfer window surprise (and there usually is) I am less optimistic than ever we will get him in now.
Who knows maybe all the focus shifts to Sunday then the situation may be revisited 🤞🏻.

Defoe is miles better than Shankland. I know they are at opposite ends of their careers but we don’t need both as they are similar types of strikers.
If Alfredo leaves in the summer then I’m sure our replacement will be of a far higher standard than the likes of Shankland.

I like Kamara, he more solid that Aribo but realistically if a club bid £6m I think we would sell him. I know we might rate him at £10m plus but selling a £50k player a year later for upwards of £5m I think we would cash in as Gerrard would believe he could get a good replacement in for a couple of million.

Meant to say any point (s) either of old firm gain is solo between 4 as that’s how many clubs we had in Europe this season. So a draw in group equals 0.25 points and a win 0.5 some of the nations above had 5 representatives do split their additional points by 5.
