Morning John25

with reports now saying there has been a £5 million bid accepted for Olaru
Have you heard anything if it's from us?
And if so would that possibly point to a first team player leaving?
I was thinking Kamara possibly with a lot of interest around him. ?


1.) 28 Jul 2022 10:28:49
Boy looks a good player
if indeed it is us he's coming too
but would love too keep kamara as he's a top player

and a good piece of our puzzle.

2.) 28 Jul 2022 10:31:58
No stig I have not. As I said last week we did submit an increased bid for Olaru.

I could see kamara leaving in this window.

Olaru would be an incredible signing, excellent box to box player.

3.) 28 Jul 2022 10:42:01
I don't know anything about this boy, but It would appear that a few on here rate him. Would he be a straight replacement for Kamara in the same position? I know we've only played friendlies, but I thought Kamara has stood out, and we all know he can play. Last season wasn't the best for Kamara, but during our title winning season, the boy was one of our best players who I believe can still do a job for us.

4.) 28 Jul 2022 10:47:20
He's an attacking midfielder, not a defensive one.

5.) 28 Jul 2022 10:54:22
Will be interesting to see if he's in the Steua Bucharest side later on tonight.

They're 1-0 down after the first leg in the Conference League qualifier.

6.) 28 Jul 2022 11:18:22
I'm hearing it's a 6million euros bid from Torino that has been accepted. Would be good if it's us though.

{Ed001's Note - Torino? Their head coach and sporting director got into a fight over the lack of signings made. They had to be pulled apart. There is video of it online as a player secretly recorded it and leaked it online.}

7.) 28 Jul 2022 12:04:39
Agree about Kamara. I think he has been our best player in pre season.

8.) 28 Jul 2022 12:51:58
would be sad too see him go seeker he has been brilliant for us his ears ethic and positional since at times are second too none, and has that we touch of magic.

9.) 28 Jul 2022 13:08:43
If it was rangers who made the bud and been accepted it would have been out by now.

10.) 28 Jul 2022 13:17:11
realistically Ed and john, and others do you think we are done and happy with incomings or do us think there may be more, I suppose if we make the champions league we might dip again, but I know a lot have said it too but I would like another striker, can never have too many goals, and with uncertainty over roofe n sakala we could be left a bit short up top.

{Ed001's Note - it will likely come down to outs now. If anyone goes that needs to be replaced then someone will come in, otherwise I doubt there will be any more first team actiivity. You can't sign a player to cover for a short term injury, they don't want to join for that and it is not sensible planning to do so. Morelos is back soon.}

11.) 28 Jul 2022 13:26:32
Two more ins. Imo

As Ed says few outs including roofe.

12.) 28 Jul 2022 14:41:04
I was a big backer of kamara when he signed said outta the three he would have been best signing and make us a few £££ along the way. Now if! he's leaving I'm more than ok with it he has served us well and only signed a new deal as a thank you to us for resurrecting his career, and has been up front on his wishes so If! He does go will be with best wishes and good luck for his future.

Sometimes you got to change a little plus olaru looks quality think he would pretty much signal that Lowry needs to go out on loan though.

13.) 28 Jul 2022 14:42:59
Any ideas John what areas they might be.

14.) 28 Jul 2022 14:44:04
John25 from your experience of following the rangers for many years if you had to choose a rangers player of yesteryear that had the same/ similar style to kemar roofe,
who would it be mate?.

15.) 28 Jul 2022 15:00:54
yeah Ed I agree its a hard void too fill we have great fire power
all capable n different types
morelos has it all
holding up the ball up bringing others in too
roofe if fit brings a whole new dimension
n do like look of colak
if all stay n keep fit
Good foward line
but would be good too get a replacement if roofe goes

n I love this john like a kid in a sweet shop just want more ?

cheers for answers all

love this forum and all input
keeps us all going bears keep it up.

16.) 28 Jul 2022 15:15:16
One Walter I believe attacking mid. Olura and a left sided ch.

17.) 28 Jul 2022 15:16:30
Walter do u mean in cheating the fans and management or on the pitch when he can be bothered.

18.) 28 Jul 2022 15:25:44
Sir Walter,

The last player Rangers had who is similar to Roofe is Naismith. Naismith was injured for 2 years, Rangers got him fit again and playing, then he walked out on us when the club need him most.

Similar abilities in that they would operate around the box, making late runs, and would contribute goals. Similar injury records too.

19.) 28 Jul 2022 15:51:10
Sir walter. Purely on injuries and he's a striker i will go seb rozenthal.

20.) 28 Jul 2022 15:58:47
Verdant totally different, he had serious injuries and chose to look after his family.

21.) 28 Jul 2022 16:07:12
John25,i mean roofe's ability on the pitch and his style to who it's most like to rangers players of yesteryear mate ? I know where you're coming from regarding some similarities between roofe and naismith, VerdantAbyss ? However i think is a much better, more natural finisher than naismith mate ?.

22.) 28 Jul 2022 16:23:08
Roofe is a clinical striker there is no doubt about that but if the club want rid I hope they do it soon he definitely is a class player on his day when fit.

23.) 28 Jul 2022 16:28:23

Naismith scored some great goals for us in Europe, against Celtic, and I think he was sold for about £8m at one point down South. He was an EPL quality striker. He was often listed as a RW but he had a free role to drift around the box and his ability to make late runs in, and find space, was Kenny Dalgliesh like. He was a great player.

I’d say Naismith and Roofe in terms of play style and ability are very similar. Roofe will never reach the those EPL heights due to his injury record. In fact, it looks like Roofe is about to go backwards down to the English lower leagues and for a guy in his prime years that’s pretty damning.

24.) 28 Jul 2022 16:50:59
I actually don’t see a similarity in playing style with anyone. Roofe for me is kind of unique in his playing style
To name guys like Naismith and rozental misses the question.

25.) 28 Jul 2022 16:53:23
All great finishers

But what about Hately or mccoist for there finishing sir Walter?

26.) 28 Jul 2022 17:39:39
Roofe has actually made 36 appearances in each of his 2 seasons with us. Not bad imo?

27.) 28 Jul 2022 17:53:50
I really rate roofe he's a danger man n very capable really think we have done well out him guy's scored some belters, just take that halfway line screamer, peach of a goal in Europe as well.

28.) 28 Jul 2022 18:06:02
Borna it’s not great either.

29.) 28 Jul 2022 18:15:46
Big negri clinical finisher but a different type of player it what a finisher Negri was.

30.) 28 Jul 2022 18:34:09
His goalscoring ratio for us is pretty good Stormtrooper ? Roofe's ability never in question it's his injuries that are the issue ?.

31.) 28 Jul 2022 18:50:26
Injuries that certainly are the issue and questionable.

32.) 28 jul 2022 19:40:30
i can't think of a player very like roofe, but i know of a few with similar lazy, self obsessed traits, its very very difficult to deal with a player who insists he's in pain, you either accept his nuances or get rid, gio may have decided the latter is best, great weapon when at it, long term malingerer.

33.) 28 Jul 2022 19:52:17
We have plenty in midfield, but the lad Olaru is a player and space/ sales could be made. Need another striker tho asap. Colak will need time to settle and Alfie still to return. Like Roofe, but I've less injuries playing Amateur golf . unfortunately the guy has to be moved on.

34.) 28 Jul 2022 19:56:05
Maybe not the same in playing style, but in terms of an inigma I would say Negri. Negri set our league in fire for 6 months, had the potential to set the all time top scorer in SPL that would never be caught…. then disappeared (be it squash ball or what ever)

35.) 28 Jul 2022 19:56:12
EHL2020- Olaru in the starting 11 tonight.

36.) 28 Jul 2022 20:02:25
Sorry TheStimgo1, didn’t see your response until after I sent mine. Great minds and all that. Negri could have been a great…. what was it, 36 goals be December (give or take)

37.) 28 Jul 2022 21:37:41
Copland1 - yeah, just seen there that he started and they win 4-2.

Also seen that Motherwell lost again - pretty poor showing.

38.) 28 Jul 2022 21:47:49
I watched the Motherwell game. Poor doesn't begin to describe it, never looked like scoring. And Dundee Utd have drawn AZ in the next round so unlikely they'll progress. Be down to us, Celtic (even though they suck in Europe) and Hearts to get some coefficient points. We should rise a good bit up the coefficient table this year as we're only defending 0.25 points after the Progres debacle 5 years ago.

39.) 28 Jul 2022 23:14:13
Definitely Aribo lol.

40.) 29 Jul 2022 10:06:35
Aribo - squash ball or Porrini's boot?



24 Jul 2022 09:43:14
Ridvan deal all set and should be unveiled this week and Tav signing a new contract ???.


1.) 24 Jul 2022 11:50:03
Still no mo and Kent deals get feeling they could be waiting on champions league qualification.

2.) 24 Jul 2022 12:19:23
Kent really needs to start showing some consistency to prove he is worth the big offer. Its never for a lack of trying but one good game every 4 or 5 won't be enough this season. We need him firingvfrom the get go in the league and putting up numbers this season to get our title back. We won't win it without kent upping his goal return.

3.) 24 Jul 2022 12:45:43
so what no kent then we won't win the title back, what have we reverted to a one man team then, get a grip.

4.) 24 Jul 2022 12:52:55
I'm not saying that Kent needed for balance we were unbalanced since candieas left now we have a right winger In matondo I want us to at least keep or left winger. Again loyalty I get he didn't have best season in the league . was good in Europe and has won our player of year before can do again .

5.) 24 Jul 2022 13:16:43
I think what we needed and now have is another outlet. Teams double up on Kent which stifles him however with a similar player on the opposite wing it should now free him up a bit.

6.) 24 Jul 2022 13:22:57
Think the problem with guys like Kent and rangers is what's a big offer to our club and fans is not a big offer compared to what's on offer elsewhere.

7.) 24 Jul 2022 13:56:33
The problem with Kent everyone knows the wee man is amazing when he's on his game his head went down after he lost his first dribble yesterday and he has no one challenging for his place in the team so regardless how he plays he's on the team sheet the following game.

8.) 24 Jul 2022 14:13:30
His needs better ball retention he loses it far too much.

9.) 24 Jul 2022 14:21:56
We wouldn't have made the final without him last year.

10.) 24 Jul 2022 14:36:24
20 assists last season if he was scoring loads of goals he would be away to England already.

11.) 24 Jul 2022 15:31:39
Just wait, Kent won't be getting doubled up now especially with Yilmaz overlapping him and Matondo and tav on the right.

12.) 24 Jul 2022 16:14:52
Callam I agree that's why I desperately want Kent and mo new deals for first time in ages we have balance.

13.) 24 Jul 2022 16:48:18
Go for what would u pay kent per week to stay.

14.) 24 Jul 2022 18:04:45
Who's to get a grip? 2 league goals from a winger who plays every game more or less every game imo opinion won't win us the league. It didn't last year, and although we added more goals in Lawrence and matondo I feel kent will have to score at least 8 to 10 goals for us to win the league.

15.) 25 Jul 2022 08:25:08
I rate kent very highly and his assists are on the money, but i do agree he should be hitting double figures in the goalscoring stakes ?.

16.) 25 Jul 2022 11:53:12
Storm can't agree wingers are ment to take the man on so it's natural that they loose the ball more often than other players as Thier play a higher percentage risk of loosing ball. I'd say something not been quite right with Kent since he bulked up you don't see him opening up speed wise as often and tries to cut inside far to often instead of hitting the touchline. If you look at how we caused trouble to teams last year it was Kent hitting touchline and then cross or cutback most of time when cuts inside they are expecting and he's not the best at shooting either.



19 Jul 2022 17:53:33

You hearing any new info on a possible new striker coming in?


1.) 19 Jul 2022 18:39:21
Nothing stig, just out going just now.

2.) 19 Jul 2022 18:59:38
Thanks John ?.



13 Jul 2022 20:46:37
Ryan kent been sought after by Galatasaray? Or is that just click bait rubbish.


1.) 13 Jul 2022 21:10:29
I cannot see Kent leaving to go to Turkey.

2.) 13 Jul 2022 21:25:21
According to some on this site he's signing an extension.

3.) 13 Jul 2022 21:36:43
Seems to be as real as the Giovanni Reyna story.

4.) 13 Jul 2022 21:54:12
I’d say normal Turkish rubbish.

5.) 13 Jul 2022 22:44:33
I think when Kent moves it will be back down south.
Certainly can’t see him going to Turkey.
Hopefully he signs a new contact as we can’t be letting an asset of his value see out his contract.

6.) 13 Jul 2022 22:45:34
Just read that also
Besiktas also mentioned and in the same breath
Turkish outlets are notoriously inaccurate lol.



27 Jun 2022 20:35:08
Villareal now being linked with a move for Morelos
What we thinking?


1.) 27 Jun 2022 20:40:43
I'd sell him and Aribo and replace them.

2.) 27 Jun 2022 20:47:46
Sell morelos for 14 to 15 million bring in erik botheim on a free bring in his former team mate ola solbakken since roma cannot get the deal done bring in a first choice keeper a cb and attacking midfielder.

3.) 27 Jun 2022 20:50:50
I think we could sell morelos aribo and kamara but try our best to keep ahold of morelos but we need to bring in another Kent for the right side.

4.) 27 Jun 2022 20:51:30
If he’s not signing a extension and the offer is decent take it and run.

5.) 27 Jun 2022 20:58:56
Morelos Agent is only interested in his cut of any transfer fee. It has been exactly the same every season. Rumour after rumour. Hopefully he will sign a new contract. That for me is the most important. He would have been ahead of everyone else this summer to get on a new deal.

6.) 27 Jun 2022 21:38:32
10M offer and he’s gone and I’d expect us to move quickly on his replacement, however, I wouldn’t be surprised at a Kamara type new contract.

7.) 27 Jun 2022 22:03:49
Stephen you keep mentioning botheim is he even free I know reports have said contract ripped up but may not be as easy as that with the Russian market.
Or you just jeep saying his name as their was a reported interest in him from us?

Does anyone actually know if he was able to rip his contract up?

8.) 27 Jun 2022 22:41:37
If we can get morelos to sign a new contract he will be our best summer signing.

9.) 27 Jun 2022 22:45:32
From what I have read storm. FIFA are allowing players based in Russia to move until July 2023 which to me says this is essentially a loan. Doesn’t sound to me like any player can completely rip up their contracts. I wonder though if players whose contracts end by summer 2023 are essentially ripping up their contract. I don’t think botheims contract ends until later than that. Others may no better.

10.) 27 Jun 2022 23:15:47
Hope he stays with Kent think Aribo what's away would love him to stay, then sell Kamara for 10m cause what all we would get now for Morelos.

11.) 28 Jun 2022 00:19:46
Wish Alfredo all the best. he's gave his all. Take (hopefully) 12m and get Botheim, Colak, and a Right and Left winger in asap.

12.) 28 Jun 2022 00:33:16
And 10m for Aribo is quite poor in my opinion, i think he will tear it up in the epl, he's ouches class, hope a big sell on, after a season down there it wouldn't surprise me him selling for tens of millions.

13.) 28 Jun 2022 04:14:41
And i see Larrson is available after ripping up his a contract over in Russia with S Moscow he must no GVB, what we think of that ppl?.

14.) 28 Jun 2022 06:09:06
Jordan Larrson would be a no and he has not had his contract ripped up he is on loan to Swedish side AIK.

I don’t think the players playing in Russia will be allowed to rip up contract.

15.) 28 Jun 2022 06:59:06
Both Larsson and Botheim have ripped up their contracts.

FIFA were allowing players to basically rip up their contracts at Russian clubs as punishment for the war.

16.) 28 Jun 2022 07:02:11
But come the 1st of July if the players playing in Russia who have chosen to terminate their contracts haven’t got a new club then FIFA have said they’ll reinstate their contracts with the Russians.

17.) 28 Jun 2022 07:28:55
And i heard that rw from Norway never signed with Roma that boy is class would love him on the rw and gets get a good few goals, i really feel GVB will have men lined up, just waiting on they 3 if there going to leave.

18.) 28 Jun 2022 07:48:58
Larrson was playing fit AIK at the weekend.

19.) 28 Jun 2022 08:39:33
Alfredo has changed agents so the comments saying his agent HAS been looking every season is lies his new agent took over at the start of this year I belive or late last year . the first agent tht got him here was gutted at loosing him . sone people really need a bang to the head STOP READING HEADLINES AND MAKING UP THE STORY.

20.) 28 Jun 2022 09:34:12
Yeah Larsson has been on loan at AIK since January but he’s now terminated his contract at Moscow.

21.) 28 Jun 2022 11:10:02
Cool Copland I seen he played for them at the weekend as I bet them and seen that he started the game.

16 Aug 2022 19:35:11
Do we all know PSV are a very quick young squad?
I'm worried about that lineup Davis in the middle
Sands at centre back
I hope to god this team don't run right through us

Hopefully Gio knows what he's doing tonight ?
Can't call it.


1.) 16 Aug 2022 20:34:56
So far so good after half hour. Davis and Sands both playing well.



16 Aug 2022 12:51:30
See a few putting Yilmaz in there squad tonight can't see it
Think barasic will start
And thinking will kamarra also get a start tonight along with lundstrum?


1.) 16 Aug 2022 13:01:04
I think its definitely a night for tried and trusted especially in defence - I've no doubt PSV will be a stern test but we should fear nobody at Ibrox as we proved last year against some very good opposition.
I saw encouraging signs against St Johnstone with some slick passing and movement off the ball giving us options.
I'm optimistic without being over confident.

2.) 16 Aug 2022 13:07:36
Stig I agree re yilmaz not starting.

3.) 16 Aug 2022 13:10:22
I hope not with Kamara! Too defensive for starting out, we need to get on the front foot! Kamara will more than likely be brought on in the second half?

4.) 16 Aug 2022 13:22:43
Kamara needs to up his workrate; all to often he's messing around the centre circle and going missing in games lately.

5.) 16 Aug 2022 13:41:30

6.) 16 Aug 2022 13:51:08
Kamara is perfect for Europe beat ball carrying midfielder we have.

7.) 16 Aug 2022 13:54:44
Will never happen, but would love to see us throw a curve ball and go old school 4-4-2 tonight.

GK McLaughlin
LB Borna
LCB Davies
RCB Goldson
RB Tav
LM Kent
LCM Kamara
RCM Lundstrum
RM Lawrence
ST Colak
ST Fredo.

8.) 16 Aug 2022 14:00:49
Borna a certainty to start imo.

9.) 16 Aug 2022 14:01:34
That's the team for me FruitBear. Only place upfl for grabs is Jack do we go for retaining the ball with kamara or a runner from deep in our big game specialist in Scott Arfield.

10.) 16 Aug 2022 14:28:18
Would be interesting to see Morelos played behind Colac on the right as he usually drags defenders around and could open up space for the poacher Colac.

Don’t really expect it but would be a good watch.

11.) 16 Aug 2022 14:48:45
I'd go for pace with Kent and Wright/ Matondo as PSV will attack us leaving opportunities on the break. McLaughlin, Tav, Connor, Davies, Borna, Jacko, Lunny, Wright/ Matondo, Colak, Tillman and Kent. If Wright starts Matondo is subbed on later for him and vice versa. Both will take the chance to run at their defence. Plenty high quality subs for the second half depending on how the game is going.

12.) 16 Aug 2022 16:35:25
DK19, that's a very interesting point mate. i think the outside right forward role would be perfect for Alfredo, does some of his best work out there or even as a second striker. My only doubt about it is that i don't think Morelos would particularly enjoy not playing the main striker role, he wants to be the main man up through the middle.

13.) 16 Aug 2022 16:48:34
DK19 - that's what I was thinking, hope it's something we'll see at some point. maybe not on a night like tonight though.



16 Aug 2022 12:43:45
Afternoon all

We have a massive game ahead
It's going to be a really hard game I reckon
PSV are a really good footballing side have had a great start to there league beating Ajax
And getting the better of Monaco in the last round
Van Nistelrooy will have them well drilled
Been reading he's s tough coach hard on players during training expects a lot of hard work he has a very good talented young squad he was offered the main manager position couple years ago but he knocked track as he didn't think he was ready he obviously now does think he's ready and there flying at the minute his team look hungry and eager to impress
I would take any win right now as I really can't call it at the minute
I wouldn't be surprised if they turn up and get something from the game they seem to have a lot of goals in them and obviously Veerman has been spoken of quite a lot on this forum so we know he's a good player the boy Bakayoko also looks a player very highly thought of too
I'm a little worried about this tie to be honest
Whoever wins over 2 legs will show there a side ready for the CL
What ever happens it will be some game I have a feeling about this one think we could have all goals scored from both sides
I wish the draw now could have been kinder though lol

Anyway come on the Gers get into them ??.


1.) 16 Aug 2022 14:05:43
Have to agree stig think this as hard a tie as you could expect in a cl qualifier they definitely have goals in that team. The one thing that could go in our favour is they will not sit back I don't believe and teams who come to play dortmund red bull etc we do well against. I don't see any weakness in there team so we will have to be at it to a man tonight no one can have an off night if we are to win tonight but believe with the ibrox roar we can beat anyone come on boys make us DREAM.

2.) 16 Aug 2022 15:52:53
Above all else it will be a stress test for the Rangers defence and goalkeeper.



13 Aug 2022 18:40:06
Cracking result today whole team played very well
Colak took his goal well and I'm warming too the big man he does look lethal when he gets a sniff

Tillman is turning into a right player for us get him signed permanently soon as
he's going to be worth a few Bob cracking player
Matondo second half I thought was immense
Airfield goal well taken think Alfie was annoyed the ball wasn't played earlier across goal for him to get the goal instead of matondo rounding keeper and cutting it back for Arfield ?
and Lawrence is also turning into a great singing
All in all very good solid performance across the board and great to see
Hopefully we can continue that sort of dominance in our games ??.




13 Aug 2022 13:59:08
Good line up today
McLaughlin no1 again thought mcgregor might have been called up today.

You guys could either goi g to be right and when he gets great crosses into he box he’s scoring a Barrow load

Or alternative
Great crosses into box and we see more of the same and then there’s no more excuses

Let’s hope it’s the first scenario.

But said he wasn’t and hadn’t heard of any transfer rumours around him at the moment.

What about Gazza in his prime does he make the list?

Roberto Carlos?
Van Basten?
Peir papan possibly earlier than 90s great player though lol
What about laudrups?

Could be here all day players in that era were class and there was many where today I would say not so many as there was back in the day?
