Fifaguy put a post on here about a striker from Argentina the other day just read that we are now being linked with river plates Colombian striker Borre. Article says he is out of contract in a couple weeks and is valued at 15million.
Not seen him but athletico Madrid signed him a few years ago but don't think he played much.


1.) 22 Jun 2021 08:51:06
I think at 15m he's just a wee bit over priced for us.

2.) 22 Jun 2021 09:18:41
He’s valued at 15 million but is out of contract soon so we would get him for free.

3.) 22 Jun 2021 09:22:27
If he’s out of contract in a few weeks he won’t cost anything other than wages and a signing on fee.

4.) 22 Jun 2021 09:29:00
If he is out of contract it won't cost us 15million three cheers.

5.) 22 Jun 2021 09:54:35
Might not cost us a transfer fee but a 15 million rated player would want wages that match his valuations.

6.) 22 Jun 2021 10:11:57
3 cheers you have had a mare this morning.

7.) 22 Jun 2021 10:33:46
My bad never read it right.

8.) 22 Jun 2021 11:08:10
Bellshilllad think we will be linked with a lot of strikers incase buff leaves mate.

9.) 22 Jun 2021 12:19:55
now that some teams are already out of the euros - will we start to see some activity e. g Kamara out? anyone in?

10.) 22 Jun 2021 13:30:55
His wages will only match his ambitions.

11.) 22 Jun 2021 13:42:27
Yip can sadly see him moving on, shocked that he’s interested in Watford o er champions league football atleast for 1 more season. Maybe a europa team but Watford? Strange.

12.) 22 Jun 2021 14:07:14
The striker was signed by Atletico but never made an appearance in 2 years.

13.) 23 Jun 2021 05:20:32
No shame in that tho davie not getting a game for top side in spain. Sure he would be class in spfl.



18 Jun 2021 08:45:18
Heard a wee rumour yesterday that Thomson has had a chat with Steven Gerrard, Wilson and academy bosses about bringing some of the youth players on loan to his team. Think this could be a great bit of business for both clubs. Thomson gets access to some of the best talent in the country and Rangers get our players developed by one of our own the Rangers way.


1.) 18 Jun 2021 09:27:03
Bellshill lad remember it's the 3rd division and the lowland league so standards aren't very high. i would hope gers players would be at a higher standard than that unless there really young.

2.) 18 Jun 2021 10:33:10
Thompson is the Kelty manager Davie in the 2nd division.

3.) 18 Jun 2021 10:34:22
Davie, the club has decided to pitch their colt team into the lowland league which is under the level that KT's team are playing in. I would therefore presume that the club would be happy about sending youth players to Kelty, especially given that they are fully aware of the coaching they will be receiving. This can only be a positive for Rangers, allowing young talent to get games against fellow pro's.

4.) 18 Jun 2021 12:04:28
Every young player has a level, Kelty might be better for some players aposed to lowland league. Some players will be loaned to spl and championship I’d imagine rangers will put players where best for their level/ development.

5.) 18 Jun 2021 12:43:35
Sorry I said 3rd division. its now called 2nd division but you know what I mean. whoever said there sending 5he colts team. remember tho the majority of our colts team have already been out on loan to higher leagues and will go back out to higher leagues again this season so our new colt team will probably be very very young. agreed it can be good for players maybe for there first loan possibly. for instance would you send leon king out on loan to kelty. no chance, yes he's young but can play at a much higher level.

6.) 18 Jun 2021 13:51:01
Like I say Leon might go to spl team or championship.

7.) 18 Jun 2021 14:22:33
It doesn’t matter if it’s low level to begin with for them they will be up against harden players and it will could be the making or the breaking of them in my opinion.

Our young players ain’t going to go straight in to other spfl teams right away on loan they need to start somewhere.

Also no one is saying Leon king will go to Kelty you seem to be picking and choosing youngsters that suit your argument which to be honest you haven’t got one.

8.) 18 Jun 2021 15:04:39
Kja9 I picked leon king as he's under age for the colts team. tell me this how many of our current colts team that were out on loan last year and at a much higher level are gers gona drop down to 1 of the lowest levels in semi professional football lol. aye probably nine or a couple. there were players across the leagues last year and did well tet gers are gona drop them to a lower level probably knocking there confidence and setting the youths and gers back at least a year or will like gers said some of these youths going back out in loan to much higher standard then they will progress the next age group to the colts. not rocket science for God sake us it. and as you tried to argue that I originally pointed out that it will be youngsters starting out on there first loan possibly. at least read my message properly first before replying eh.

9.) 18 Jun 2021 16:03:24
Davie am I correct in saying they must be 16 to play in the league.

10.) 18 Jun 2021 16:21:13
I never said anyone that’s out at a higher level will go lower.

11.) 18 Jun 2021 16:48:25
Davie you seem to be saying that dropping down our colts team is counter productive, i completely disagree with you on that, playing competitive football at that stage in development is the way forward, if you listen to our manager and backroom staff they seem to know what there doing with bringing players through and into first team, even last season when young kai Kennedy got full of himself, SG put him straight, shipped him out and showed the discipline needed to play for rangers, the same player has now put oen to paper, so let's just get back to rumours and not pick apart an amazing season with your bull opinion, or shall we tell our backroom staff to step aside for our davie.

12.) 18 Jun 2021 17:02:54
Loyalist think you mistook me. what I said was most of the current colts team were out on loan last season playing at a higher level. these players will I imagine still be loaned out to bigger teams in better leagues as they were last season.10 of our colts team got released this season so I imagine the team that's gona be playing with the lowland league will be the next batch of colts players ready to step up from there age group. why would gers want to tell players that were let's say at queen of the south last year to drop 2 or 3 divisions to play in colts or Kelly hearts. they wont. they will loan these players back out trying to progress there career to the next level. i specifically name checked leon king as in my eyes a player like that, that has potential and could do with a season at Kelly hearts playing against men as he has never had a loan and also around the age group I think will be in the lowland league. i also namechecked him as I don't know any other youngsters at gers his age that could benefit for them. time will tell.

13.) 18 Jun 2021 17:04:27
John I very much doubt age will be of a concern as there still youth products under contract at youth level so presume it will be up to gers who they play.

14.) 18 Jun 2021 18:07:59
dd1980 To be eligible to play in matches held under the auspices of the Lowland League and for registration, a player must have attained the age of 16 years. Their rule, no grey areas.

15.) 18 Jun 2021 18:14:59
Davies checked spfl rules off which lowland league come under a player must be 16 to play a league match
This was how Gilmour never made debut for us.

16.) 18 Jun 2021 18:33:34
Loyalist your saying dropping down the leagues like 2 league drop is good for anybody never mind the youths lol. so players that have played first division last season and did well are gona want, accept and gers think it's for there progress to drop to semi professional football. away and take yerself for a sh ite eh. realisticly what players wants to drop to such a low level after exceeding at a much higher level and you say I talk bull for God sake. aye ok then. why not drop Patterson down to Kelly hearts. least he get game time eh. I enough said I think🤔🤔🤔🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫.

17.) 19 Jun 2021 09:02:33
Surely it horses for courses and a good option for some youth players.
We played in that league ourselves and higher rated youth players and season Pros struggled in some games.
Quality might be lower but physically it can be daunting and if any highly rated youth player doesn’t get option to play at higher level on loan this would be ideal.
I’m sure if they tear it up they will be loaned at higher level next time? It can only be a positive thing as Kelty are an ambitious well run club and are probably going to end up between Championship and League 1 like a Cove or Alloa.

18.) 19 Jun 2021 11:07:34
Sure it was obvious Thomson would have at the very least discussed young people way before the news of his appointment broke, I mentioned it myself weeks ago,

As do most young coaches leaving a big club for a fledgling career at a small club, they will alw Have a chat about taking youngsters.

19.) 19 Jun 2021 11:35:07
Davie, let me be clear, i think your talking mince, no-one is saying that players will drop down to that league to advance there career, however you spoke of young boy king, let's say he's injured, and on road back to recovery he plays in that league to get match fit and up to speed, my main point is i trust the football men to know what there doing eg Dick advocate was offered a new contract when managing rangers , he replied to Murray that he would only sign if he pledged to build an Academy, the rest is history, this lowland league business is further adding to the development of said academy, which in my opinion has never truly reached it full potential until now, i'm a season ticket holder who loves what our present management are doing, i'm not here to argue an irrelevant point with yourself, our current backroom staff are outstanding and don't deserve our petty criticism, namaste.

20.) 19 Jun 2021 14:21:19
The information I was told was he would get a couple young players who will be going out on a 1st loan to gain experience in men's football. I know we have the colt team in lowland league. I personally think that the more players we expose to men's football the better it will be better for us in the long run. I was also told Rangers academy see the benefit in Thomson managing our youngsters. He has gained a great deal of respect for his coaching ability during his time in our youth set up. He also knows the players that he would be getting so reduces the risk of game time, getting played out of position and so on. He was able to attract Barjonas who I think we all agree is better than league 2. I believe that it was more he wanted to play for Thomson rather than the club and think that's what Rangers would see more the coach than league.

21.) 19 Jun 2021 17:21:54
I don’t think the women’s league would accept them myself.



08 Jun 2021 10:21:22
Was talking to a friend last night that has gave me some good rumours about various clubs. He told me that we are looking at young Dutch CB Rick van Drongelen who currently plays for our German partnership club Hamburg. My knowledge of the boy is limited, I know he is left sided and early 20s.


1.) 08 Jun 2021 11:43:10
Got told we are also looking at a loan for a Mitchel Van Hire. Reliable with good delivery apparently….

2.) 08 Jun 2021 13:22:32
Stuart does he do a transit long wheel base hire?

3.) 08 Jun 2021 15:13:10
Great player but you will never get your deposit back.

4.) 08 Jun 2021 17:14:31
I hope the wheels don't fall off that deal and it hits the skidz.



11 May 2021 20:27:43
Read a few stories linking us with James carraghers, son of Jamie. Story was he impressed while we were scouting the young striker at Wigan Joseph. 18 year old CB who is out of contract at the end of the season. Everton were also mentioned.


1.) 12 May 2021 06:49:34
Great that we are in touch with young talent mate.

2.) 12 May 2021 12:05:01
Heard that one the other day. Roger Hannah said on SSB the other night that there’s nothing in it though and he’s usually spot on.

3.) 17 May 2021 16:59:06
Paul86 I didn’t know that about Kamara - I think 10 is light though massive profit on 50k but for me he a huge talent and only seems to get better. He is one of Finland’s top players and will showcase his skills this summer at the euros - I think he is tailor made for an arsenal return one day and if he went for 10 mil I think we would be selling ourselves short - surely 15 mil but maybe I’m dreaming with my blue specs on again. Regardless of 10 or 15 it would be one of our biggest ever profits on a player.



30 Apr 2021 18:38:30
Had a conversation with a friend that sometimes comes across footballing rumours and shares bits and pieces. His brother works for a scouting agency anyway he told me that we have been keeping tabs on rayan cherki for the past season. He is the 16 year old that played against us in the pre season tournament in France for lyon. Other than that game I have no knowledge of the boy but in that game he was their player that looked good to me.


1.) 30 Apr 2021 19:27:54
Perfectly reasonable mate, good to know we are on the ball.

2.) 30 Apr 2021 19:41:24
Good player but rated 22.5 million on transfer market. Out our price range.

3.) 30 Apr 2021 20:15:31
Was going to say that bgate, I'm sure I saw his name on a list of top youngsters in Europe just in the last week or so. Unless we are monitoring a contract situation for a Bosman not sure we could afford him,

4.) 30 Apr 2021 23:08:08
We keep tabs on dozens of boys every year. This one is out of our league at present.

5.) 01 May 2021 10:42:40
Fine player, not in our price range.

6.) 01 May 2021 11:19:44
Been looking a bit more and like you all say must be either a bosman or possibly a loan move maybe.

{Ed001's Note - can players still move abroad under the age of 18? I thought that had been banned?}

Was chatting to a few Eastern Europeans I work with today and the 21 year old Croatian CM that we are linked with came up. Long story short on of them has Croatian in laws and this boy is going to be a decent player. At 21 he captains their under 21 nationalside and if not for injuriesthis season they were saying he would have been in the euros squad. They were talking like he will be a Mainstay in the full national side for years to come. Anyone know anything about the boy.




11 May 2021 16:05:04
Just read we are now being linked with a move for James Carragher, son of Jamie. 18 year old CB out of contract at Wigan so would only be cross border compensation. Everton were also mentioned as a club looking to sign him. Story is we were looking at the young striker Joseph I think his name is and carragher caught the eye.


1.) 11 May 2021 16:29:38
If he's anywhere near as good as his father was then that would be great.

2.) 11 May 2021 17:11:53
I read that also, if it's TRUE I'm sure we will get him because if Gerrard, he's meant to be a big powerful, quick lad that excels on 1 on 1s.

3.) 11 May 2021 17:59:23
Not sure rethis story given carragher not played for Wigan first team.
Mb we watched Joseph at reserve level and carragher managed a game.

4.) 11 May 2021 20:49:28
John there is a few reports saying we saw him while looking at Joseph.

5.) 12 May 2021 07:17:55
Good to know we now watch Wigan reserves. Yes I read that on the very relatable football insider website. It’s called click bait.



14 Jan 2021 18:19:00
Just read an article about interest in morelos from Bayern's as the long term successor of Lewandowski. Article was of of a Spanish outlet. Me personally can't see it happening but would love to see it just to wind the Celtic fans up.


1.) 14 Jan 2021 18:26:59
Canae see that happening mate he’s not in that class lol maybe he could go to a team challenging for European place in Germany 1st and see what happens.

2.) 14 Jan 2021 18:29:16
EL football insidero.



27 May 2020 11:02:55
Just read an article and got talking to a Southampton fan about Stuart Armstrong as a possible target for us. At 28ish I think he was a hood player up here and isn't getting game time down south. Think if we were to bring him in he would be a good addition to our midfield. Wee bit more creative than Davis, jack and co.


1.) 27 May 2020 11:28:16
He must be on a good wage?

2.) 27 May 2020 12:17:30
Heard a wee rumour that he "favours" us over them. Is he any better than what we have though?

3.) 27 May 2020 12:30:33
Superb player.

4.) 27 May 2020 12:57:06
Seeker pal, they way our midfield was playing pre shutdown, he would be a vast improvement on what we have. If available, I think he'd be worth a punt.

5.) 27 May 2020 13:35:54
Seeker he is a definite step up on what we presently have.

6.) 27 May 2020 13:47:10
Totally agree with you Bizzmy Brox,
stuart armstrong is a superb central midfielder, who scores goals. I would take him at rangers in a second!

7.) 27 May 2020 14:41:56
Yea totally agree would be a good addition. don't know if he would prefer us to them. i'm sure his family are all big Celtic fans.

8.) 27 May 2020 15:12:48
I was asked this by a fellow bear just now, regarding stuart armstrong, which i'll share with you guys. I was asked as our very own scotty arfield and stuart armstrong are similar styled midfielders, who would i prefer rangers to sign, if both were the same age and i could only sign one. My choice would be arfield, although i do rate armstrong highly.

9.) 27 May 2020 15:14:22
Having played for celtic would he be accepted by our fans? Personally i don't care good player is a good player. And as long as they give everything for rangers doesn't bother me about signing ex celtic players. Always thought we should have bought him when celtic did. He would walk into our midfield in my opinion and at his age you would hope he would want to play over getting few extra pound in his pocket.

10.) 27 May 2020 16:18:03
Played loads this season. Very much in favour. And is a massive celtic fan.

11.) 27 May 2020 16:43:49
Armstrong will not be a Rangers player for two reasons - he is on a £54k a week contract and he is a massive Shettleston Harrier with less love for our club that O'Halloran.

12.) 27 May 2020 16:57:00
I don't know that he's a massive celtic fan mate, from boyhood anyway.

13.) 27 May 2020 17:00:35
Ok guys, must have got duff information. I thought he was a bear. To be honest anytime I watched Southampton he either was on the bench or when he did play he was piss poor. Just saying.



05 May 2020 13:12:31
With lovenkrands inthe running to replace Tommy Wright anyone else think he will use his rangers connections to improve them. Think we could take advantage and give them some of our fringe or youth players like the young full back patterson maybe polster and edmunson to see if they have what it takes in league. Could also maybe see holt, halliday and 1 or 2 other out of contract players. Could benefit both clubs.


1.) 05 May 2020 13:28:43
Our reserve coach peter lovenkrands is highly thought of within our academy and would be a loss if he did indeed become the new st. johnstone manager. He's very ambitious however and did say that he wanted to be a manager/ head coach, within the game. I agree bellshilllad83,that if lovenk did become st. johnstone manager/ head coach, i most definitely think he would use his connections at rangers to take some of our young players and some fringe players, to st. johnstone which of course would benefit us and them!

2.) 05 May 2020 20:17:05
Sgl, then there would be a former player running a team in our top league?, don't be crazy mate, big pete would never allow that to happen, fact. mate. fact.

3.) 06 May 2020 07:51:01
Paulellen, Lennon and Stubbs managed Hib's, and Paul Hartley managed Dundee, as did Neil McCann, so I don't see the problem.

4.) 06 May 2020 16:01:22

I think the 2 million will be small fish compared to the sell on fee. If he keeps developing the way he is I reckon we could get the same again easily.

Our head of youth said in an interview that we are continuing to make money from the Gilmour deal. I think it was a great bit of business and a model that we will follow in future situations. Can see any youth sold will go with a sell on clause, buy back clause, international appearance fee, appearance fees. Will be a completely different set up now.

I believe that Defoe is worth every penny no matter how much he gets a week. His influence around the place I'd hugely visible in the growth of our attacking players. I think his worth can be seen in the growth of Morelos. He has went from a goalscorer with a temper maturing into an outstanding all round forward that is developing self control.
As for Gerrard replacement when he goes I do think they are already at ibrox but it won't be Defoe. I think his replacement will be Beale if still with us. The guy is undoubtedly a talented coach and think he could step up to being the main man.

Think we will add at least 1 possibly 2 CMs during the window as we looked a bit short when injuries hit Jack and Arfield at the end of the season and zungu loan expired.

The main cause in my opinion is poor recruitment something like 30 million spent in past few years with most getting their contracts terminated by mutual consent. That has to stop. Paying millions in fees then same in paying them off. Secondly it will be the excessive legal fees caused by the sports direct twat taking us to court every time his dinner is cold.

I think with wilson in our recruitment will improve buying low improving and selling for profit with sell on clauses in the likes of morelos, kamara, aribo etc. Pretty much copy what Celtic have done with there players for years now.

I think it was just needing time to gel. Keep the majority of that team and the league will be ours. Think new first choice keeper, left back and if morales is sold a good quality striker. Go out and spend a bit on each position get some quality and team will be outstanding.
