I'm hearing both keepers McLaughlin and macgreggor and a defender so far all out with positive tests?

anyone know anyone else?


1.) 25 Aug 2021 11:24:40
Both keepers Tav and one other are the rumours the only one for certain is McLaughin.

2.) 25 Aug 2021 11:29:32
Heard that yesterday defender is meant to be tav. alli g with sakala and also Wright.

3.) 25 Aug 2021 11:52:56
I heard both keepers, Wright, Tav and Goldson.
Permed with everyone else who's heard different, the full team is unavailable 😂😂.

4.) 25 Aug 2021 12:10:00
Correct ph. I wrote on Sunday academy game off weigh Sakala, I did say hagi however he played so I got that one wrong.

I also wrote that SG wanted to keep squad top heavy. Had text today saying unlikely any first team squad will go on loan ie Arfield katic Kelly.

5.) 25 Aug 2021 13:04:21
Anyone heard any names yet?
It has to be this week of all weeks for a C.V. outbreak.

6.) 25 Aug 2021 17:40:51
Mcgregor hasn't got C.V. but is close contact so should be OK for Sunday after PCR test comes back.



08 Aug 2021 19:29:32
Anyone know if we or Celtic have bids knocked back for Lewis Ferguson?


1.) 08 Aug 2021 19:52:53
Not that lm aware of stigno, my understanding was only Watford had made a bid.

2.) 08 Aug 2021 20:18:12
Thestigno1 where did you hear that us or them bid for ferguson? I would 100% take him.

3.) 08 Aug 2021 20:26:24
Hope no well end up way about 30 midfeilders.

4.) 09 Aug 2021 06:08:55
Just seen a report saying Aberdeen have knocked back 2 good offers in past couple of days from 2 clubs
Just wondering if we or Celtic were any of the clubs

could just be click bait

Just in case anyone had heard anything.

5.) 09 Aug 2021 10:25:52
Providing the price was right, would like to see Ferguson sign.

When Jack's not playing we seriously lack physicality on the midfield.

6.) 09 Aug 2021 10:34:04
Lewis dad derek said on open goal podcast there have been 2 separate bids knocked back so far this summer for him,

7.) 09 Aug 2021 10:34:29
I think 1 was Watford, not sure on the other.

8.) 09 Aug 2021 12:09:53
We could be needing to replace arfield, jack as he may never recover and davis who is 36. Strengthen when you are ahead and get proven players u know who can do tht job. We have trimmed the wage bill abit offloading a couple if we can offload 1 or 2 more thn this is an area we need improved. At the start of nxt season can you see arfield jack and davis still with us, i certaily cant. We need a skillfull creative player who can also put the boot in. 👌💙.

9.) 09 Aug 2021 13:25:38
Broxxibear, well you couldn't accuse Lewis Ferguson of being skillfull or creative, so let's look elsewhere. I do agree with you and I have previously posted that Jack has missed 80 games for us through injury since signing and Arfield sadly is not the player he was and Davis will have one more season after this. Now is the time to strengthen.

10.) 09 Aug 2021 13:54:59
Tht wasnt a post saying we should sign Ferguson tavsonloyal, it was response to someone saying we are overloaded in midfield, my point was we need to strengthen mid now as afew of them won't be here next year and may not even play a significant part this season, but yeah we are both agreed on same point. And tbh i couldn't really comment on young lad Ferguson as I usually only watch us, not seen much of the young lad. Heard he's got a bit bite and can pass the ball score the odd goal but not heard anything skillwise. Was he young player of yr once or twice? Theirs hidden gems out their in inferior leagues or lower lever clubs in other countries. Hope our scouts are doing their homework. I still think we need another forward, defoe too oldbwill only get odd game and i wouldn't put my trust in Itten. 💙.

11.) 09 Aug 2021 15:43:21
We have to evolve and try to maintain our position at the top. Lewis, Ali McCann would improve our squad, allow us to have competition for places and squads to handle the league, Europe, the cups. He is a ball winner with a (considering he's been at Aberdeen) great goal return.

12.) 09 Aug 2021 17:34:48
I’ve said on numerous times Ferguson would be ideal to battle out Jacks role in team.
He scores against Old Firm every season and in Europe, he’s physical, a good passer and has a great engine.
He started as a youth player breaking into Hamilton’s 1st team (after we released him) and he then developed to become by far their best player within 2 seasons.
He then went up north as a squad player and within 2 years has become their best player he just keeps improving and i'd would live us to sign him.
Even sign him and loan him back to Aberdeen.



25 Jul 2021 14:03:34
Heard diago costa in glasgow today not sure if true
If it is who could he be signing for potentially?


1.) 25 Jul 2021 14:35:08
He is opening up a new Costa coffee in Glasgow.

2.) 25 Jul 2021 14:38:22
Don't know about him being in Glasgow but he has been linked to the other mob. Maybe he's only here to see The Rangers.

3.) 25 Jul 2021 14:43:20
Swap deal for Alfredo lol.

4.) 25 Jul 2021 16:08:22
Nope a guy called Diego was at Costco, Spanish restaurant in Falkirk.

5.) 25 Jul 2021 16:47:22
Is Costa attached to any club atm? Did he not terminate his athleticism contract half way through last season? Where did he end up?

6.) 25 Jul 2021 16:48:19
I notice gerrard and Costa follow each other on Instagram. Always thought they hated each other.

But he's been reported in glasgow? Is there something in it?

7.) 25 Jul 2021 19:20:30
Not a chance lol.

8.) 27 Jul 2021 12:31:45
hes signing for queens park! lol.



03 Jul 2021 19:08:41
Anyone know who the new potential that apparently is very close?


1.) 03 Jul 2021 19:29:33
Apparently Gerrard said we will have another signing in 3 or 4 days.

2.) 03 Jul 2021 19:31:17
No idea who though hope it's Carlos Gomes guy from down South he looked to have tons of potential to me.

3.) 03 Jul 2021 19:42:27
Moreno maybe?

4.) 03 Jul 2021 19:50:12
Stig imo Moreno is one name.

5.) 03 Jul 2021 19:55:17

6.) 03 Jul 2021 20:01:34

7.) 03 Jul 2021 20:02:42
Regarding Morelos is still 10.3m and then a 4.2m in added bonuses and a 20% add on fee

That's all well said and done but this is performance heavy driven

I've no doubt Morelos can score 15 plus in the first campaign providing he is not injured but the deal still comes with its risk!

I think Rangers are holding out for a fee of between 14- 17m straight up with the 20% moving on fee

So it's the initial fee I believe Porto have come short on

Rangers would rather the lump sum and no add ons if a deal can be struck that way

So ideally at least 14m and 20% moving on fee.

8.) 03 Jul 2021 22:21:34
Defo want lump sum for Morelos anything short of at least 16- million plus add one can take a hike and he should stay for champions league
Give him a shake if he wants to leave just now the potential he could have if we make champions league and have a good one

If not 16million plus up front at least
My opinion anyway lol.

9.) 03 Jul 2021 23:02:35
Moreno would be a decent signing.

10.) 03 Jul 2021 23:39:54
I read about the valuations on Morelos. Greed is 1 of the 7 deadly sins. Remember he was bought for 1 million, we should be grateful of any profit.

11.) 03 Jul 2021 23:58:29
So happy to sell him for 2m as that's a profit?

12.) 04 Jul 2021 00:11:01
Herewego55, well done my friend, it is indeed a profit.

13.) 04 Jul 2021 00:30:09
BIGIKS is at the wind up 😂.

14.) 04 Jul 2021 00:33:36
Envy and Pride are also deadly sins - whoops!

Honestly I did not envy Celtic winning the league all these years nor am I bursting with pride this year.

£1.1m will be sufficient for Morelos mi lord.

15.) 04 Jul 2021 10:05:47
Finally……………announce john eustace! Haha.

16.) 04 Jul 2021 10:24:18
Clasps Gomes
Signed for Luton last wee bro 👍🏼.



24 May 2021 09:21:28
See there a lot of headlines regarding Bochum wanting Hagi

Does anyone know if any real substance to it? And how much there willing to pay if true?


1.) 24 May 2021 10:26:37
Not sure they would have the money or appeal to lure him away.

I think we would be looking for around £15m before going to the table.

2.) 24 May 2021 10:45:39
Im going to go way naw they can't afford him and hagi will want to be playing in europe either europa league or champions league bochum offer neither and really cannot see them having 15-20 million to buy him either.

3.) 24 May 2021 11:23:22
They have just been promoted to top league in Germany so potentially they could fund a transfer. If we could sell hagi and have money for the Dutch CM with money left over for me that woukd be excellent business for us.

4.) 24 May 2021 12:06:27
Sure I read hagi has a sell on fee and that he has a release clause of 10 million.

5.) 24 May 2021 14:03:30
Doesn’t matter a jot what anyone thinks Bochum can afford,

If they can afford, then they can afford,

Hagi will travel through Europe like a ploom.

6.) 24 May 2021 16:20:32
I can’t see us selling for any less than £10m, the thing is though with hagi’s impressive numbers this season he very well could come on in terms of performances next season and has every chance of being our best player. It’s a pity Gerrard won’t play with him in a more central role as that’s without doubt where he is most impressive and does his best work.

I don’t know much about Bochum, do they have a rich Owen we behind them? As if they do that could sway it but if there just going to be battling relegation I don’t see him accepting going there. Not when he’s linked with Sevilla and lazio, I believe 1 more year with us we could get £15m for him next summer. I’d be going to the euros with Romania? I don’t know if they qualified.

7.) 24 May 2021 17:31:59
Aribo for 3.5m don’t insult us.

8.) 25 May 2021 12:02:39
I would sell hilander hagi kamara morelos barasic possibly aribo before their value drops.

17 Sep 2021 11:01:56
Gerrard needs to explain the transfer policy we're spending money on people who are not strengthening the team
Someone some where is not doing there job properly for the benefit of the team / club

we can't keep allowing so much money to be walking out the door without a return

Transfers need to be better
I think this will be gerrard last season in charge but who's behind the scenes getting all these transfers wrong and paying out the wages that if true are way to high for what we get in return

Again not sure what direction we're going to head in this season top of the league or not

See where we are come Xmas
And hopefully if need be we can sort some positions where we are very much lacking in January.


1.) 17 Sep 2021 11:21:26
We are not spending any money. The club is in a poor financial state and if we don't win this league we could be in a mess for years to come. We need a rebuild soon but don't have the money to do a rebuild. Shagger and Davis are finished after this season, Goldson is gone and Kent and Kamara will be sold soon enough to plug the financial gap. Celtic are building a side for next season and can see we are in the decline. If they somehow manage to win the league this season it could take us a long time to recover.

2.) 17 Sep 2021 11:21:44
You said pretty much the same thing last year.

3.) 17 Sep 2021 11:25:04
We've not spent any money on players this season. But the guys who have came in certainly have not been an updrade in quality.

4.) 17 Sep 2021 11:35:58
I do not believe we can buy any more Players in January until we sell. Soft Loans from the Directors are all very well but they still have to be payed back. We need a bit of a clear out!

5.) 17 Sep 2021 12:28:12
Thestigno1 agree totally mate.



12 Sep 2021 10:36:30
Anyone know just how good Tony Weston is what age is he 17?
do we think he will make a first team appearance in the next year he had rave reviews when he signed for us just wondering g how good he is and if he could break into first team in near future

Rooney done it at 16 so it's possible for young guys to do it if there good enough?


1.) 12 Sep 2021 11:04:53
John probably the best to tell you mate as he has seen him a good few times.

2.) 12 Sep 2021 12:01:48
Imo the boy is excellent and has a great future if he keeps working hard. Yes he is 17.
Still not sure if he can play first team, whilst playing in lowland league.
I actually asked this of some who worked high up in sfa and he did not know answer.
Also emailed rangers no reply.

3.) 12 Sep 2021 13:46:02
Thanks John
Great minds eh lol

Would be good to see him coming on and getting a few mins to see how he bares up.



11 Sep 2021 17:40:20
Great 3 points today
Tav goal was a cracker

I'm worried about Morelos scoring exploits being number 1 striker at the club he's not nearly scoring enough for me anymore
And it was a big opportunity missed on the window not getting in another striker a proven striker at that
Are we really low on money is that the real reason we didn't?

how many goals scored last season in league 12 or so

This season so far 1-2?

our wingers and midfield don't score great amount of goals either
And luckily enough tav can hit a ball

like I say great 3 points today but the wider issue for me is our strikers not nearly scoring enough goals
Roofe cnat be relied on every game of the season to stay fit and I think we're really light up top and really don't understand why it's not been addressed in the last window there

Morelos for me the amount of games he plays should be banging in 20+ goals a season in the league

Kent also should be contributing more
Think of the players of the past these players are not matching up at times for goal contribution
and this season I reckon we're going to need goal scorers especially now our defence not being as solid as it was last season
and we need goals on the Board

Anyone feel the same worry about our goal threat up front or is just me
Morelos can link up play hold the ball up etc but I want too see him score goals and I'm old fashioned in believing strikers job is to score goals end of?

again great goal by tav and got us out a hole today.


1.) 11 Sep 2021 18:06:56
Totally agree Stig. I stated earlier that Morelos should be scoring more.

2.) 11 Sep 2021 18:07:59
Good post Stig.
In regards to any striker scoring - yes they should all be judged on how many goals they score.
But other parameters can come into play.
Such as team formation, service and additional role he may be asked to play tactically.
There is no doubt Morelos has been asked to link play up more.
But to score as well he has to be provided with better service and that isn't happening just now as the team still struggles to fire on all cylinders.

3.) 11 Sep 2021 18:12:03
Morelos and Kent as we know can perform a lot lot better. Are they happy? Just look at Eduardo of Celtic, he was unhappy and it really showed with his performances. His debut today and he scores 2 goals for Palace. Happy people produce a happy product.

4.) 11 Sep 2021 20:12:30
I love morelos, and I am always one of the first to back him on here, but I think he needs to try harder to get in the box when we are attacking. 2 or 3 times again today he links it really well and we get in down the sides, but he isn't busting a gut to get between the sticks.

5.) 11 Sep 2021 21:05:39
Bang on stig, I'd go as far to say that all of our front players haven't been at it since Christmas, Kent is either brilliant or useless, I'd say 70 percent of the time the latter, morelos looks overweight and disinterested, where is the menace who never gave defenders a minutes peace, he doesn't look a goal threat either, I like roofe but he seems injury prone, what I really don't understand is offloading itten if there was noone coming in, the boy isn't good enough to be a regular for us but gave a different option in terms of height and aerial threat, considering a lot of our game is based on full backs marauding forward and throwing crosses in then surely this was a decent option when plan a wasn't working, we look vulnerable just now, also Gerrard needs to pick his strongest team, mcgregor and barisic should be starting today if fit, if they aren't then they shouldn't be on the bench either, we need to improve before we start dropping needless points.

6.) 11 Sep 2021 22:53:53
Strikers love to score goals and the buzz that comes with it, and good strikers are always sniffing around the box looking for any half chance going, but i don't see that in Morelos!



09 Sep 2021 22:10:11
Guys serious question and I think we need a clear answer from government.

BUT do players need to prove they're double jabbed to get into stadium and play football
Along with every other major sporting events? Rugby for instance?

Can't be one rule for us and one rule for them surely?


1.) 09 Sep 2021 23:46:16
Prob half players have not been double jabbed going by reports. That goes for EPL as well.

2.) 10 Sep 2021 09:15:15
Players don't need to be and yes it is different rules. It is the same for any employees who are attending g their workplace if that be a football field, nightclub, festival etc.

3.) 10 Sep 2021 09:25:40
Huey why are healthcare staff being made to take it then? The simple answer to your question Thestigno1 is no its only the plebs who pay the wages that need the vax not the rich boys on the park.

4.) 10 Sep 2021 10:24:22
Nothing on what applies to Scotland Ed mate.

Sturgehole will see that we don't get that benefit.

{Ed033's Note - we can hope that people in general can see the inconsistencies in the C.V. narrative?

5.) 10 Sep 2021 12:49:14
Sweep, thing is the people working in health care settings dealing with C.V. will likely have had the C.V. already. Why would they need to be jabbed in the first place?

6.) 10 Sep 2021 13:13:56
Sweep it is down to individual employers to decide. Currently NHS haven't made C.V. vax compulsory but the NHS have rules already for requirement to have other vaxs to work in certain roles.

7.) 10 Sep 2021 13:50:41
If I worked in the NHS regardless of Vax status I’d walk right out the door with my workmates, NHS staff and carers have work the last almost two years through this to be told now you get Jabbed or lose your job is disgusting absolutely disgusting!

8.) 10 Sep 2021 17:07:03
Well said R1.



06 Sep 2021 00:57:39
Guys I don't know is what's going on with calling out coldo etc

I actually enjoy his posts - I read his posts the same way I read everyone else's I take. No malice from his posts
Whether he is at wind up or not I just assume it's an opinion and reply accordingly!

in my opinion Jack is a better midfielder than kamarra when he's at his peak and I miss the guy when he's been out so long
and pray he comes back near full fitness he makes a great difference to our team
Love his dig he has about him and not scared to have a shot from outside the box
And he's been great for our club since we signed him
Take nothing away from karmarra though another great player
Just Jack has been and still is one of my favourite players for Rangers

anyway it's nice too see coldo back if he's not banned again every poster brings a different t opinion and point of view whether we all agree or not
and the more posters the merrier I say.



1.) 06 Sep 2021 07:27:36
I totally agree with you Thestigno1 👍A totally fit ryan jack for me is a better midfielder for rangers than glen kamara and i rate kamara highly also 🤔Jacko brings everything to our midfield and of course we miss him badly! Steven Gerrard was a world class midfielder in his pomp and obviously knows all there is to know about the midfield position and jack has always been gerrard's first name down for a midfield starting position, which says it all for me 👌🇬🇧.

2.) 06 Sep 2021 07:50:07
A fully fit young Ian Durrant is better than both of them, wonder who will be back first? LOL!

3.) 06 Sep 2021 08:11:55
Gerrard surely knows about a midfield friend on highest salary alright. Hope Lundstram turns it around, Simpson was another he was chasing for years. Sometimes u can't always say. I trust the manager over so n so. Managers never get transfers 100% right n some of the opinions posed by fans turn out better thn the managers choice. Hate all this al take the managers word over so n so just because it suits your agenda. Say its your opinion n thts what you think. No need to bring the managers view into it just to make urself look correct. We can all choose high profile people to back our opinion but we form opinions of our own. 👌💙.

4.) 06 Sep 2021 08:54:18
Broxxi, 3 year olds have opinions like everyone else they don’t count for much due to a lack of experience.

In your opinion, how many times does a typical fan get it right v wrong when going against an experience manager?

Bit like the time, stick to the same answer and you’ll be right twice every day.

5.) 06 Sep 2021 09:25:17
I agree with Broxi some of the managers signings prove mistakes are made and sometimes us supporters can see better options out there. Of course there are factors which influence signings and we are not privy to that information but we can recognise poor signings when we see them.

6.) 06 Sep 2021 16:35:37
Totally agree with broxxi, SGL’s famous for it, like he lives in the gaffers head! I like Gerrard! But Gerrard has a long way to go as a manager he made as many poor signings as he has good ones thus far.

7.) 06 Sep 2021 17:59:47
SGL just because gerrard was a great midfielder in his day doesn't mean he knows and can identify the best players based on who is available.
Going by tht theory diego maradona
Would have bn one of the worlds greatest managers or any other world class player for tht matter.
I love stevie G, was just making the point tht if u have an opinion let it be yours, no need to say and i trust my opinion over anyone's because thts what stevie G says. When we have players in the squad we want moved on do you say. No no I think we should keep him stevie G says he was our future captain🤔🤔🤔
Is it just me or does tht sound logical 💙💙💙.

8.) 06 Sep 2021 18:50:56
Name me a manager who doesn't make poor signings, Highlandbear?
Gerrard's success rate is currently at 50% in my opinion.

It’s about time he just gets on with scoring goals and stop talking about leaving it is getting boring

do your job your paid to do

imagine goi go to your work and saying I’m leaving and saying it every 6 months or so do you think they would want you there 🤣

I just want him to stop missing so many chances and start hitting the net and get back up the table to being top goal scorer hitting Atleast 25-30+ goals in a season he gets enough games so shouldn’t be hard to do?

MillerBrandWilson please explain how it’s scaremongering?

I just stated the way I feel we’re performing and also stated about players that no one came in with serious money if they really wanted to buy
The way they do when they want Celtic players?

MPH stated true facts in his post about cup games

How is any of it scaremongering 😂?

John If that’s true I feel sorry for Jack
And I feel very disappointed for the team as he is a quality player
And it would be such a waste in talent
Fingers crossed he does come back from it.

Good post MPH

Gerrard read this it should cause him some concern? And his players!

The way there playing at the minute I’m not sure how it will go tonight Livingston will have chances it’s down too who creates more and can put the ball in the net
Will we be hungry for tonight’s game?

can’t see a good European run this year for some reason don’t honk we will get by the group stages this year
the team is looking tired, jaded just something a miss and we really needed better quality in the transfer window.

Possibly we all seem to think more of players than other clubs do as no one seemed interested in putting in serious money to buy our players out transfer policy for some reason has t really taken off we really struggle to sell players for good profits like the mob across the city do
Teams want there players they just come straight in with serious money and get then end of
All we get is paper talk

I feel Davis just hasn’t the legs for every game neither does arfield Morelos goals are drying up Kent way off the boil wright isn’t setting the heather on fire northern is lundstrum could go on and on

End of this season players who want out need to be sold but if No one is goi g to pay the money and we can’t afford to let them leave for pennies then we’re left with unhappy players?
we need good young creative players and a prolific goal scorer who can batter in 25-30 goals in the Scottish league

our football this season has been very boring with no real End product and we’re just not lethal enough to finish teams off

this could be a rant but it’s just how I feel about the squad at the minute.
