Reliable source in Norwich when asked about McLean to us said there’s no chance as they see him as an important player and we won’t meet the fee.


1.) 12 Jun 2024 13:36:09

3.) 12 Jun 2024 14:13:54
Of all the folk we’ve been linked with this one is the one I hope to be true more than anything.

4.) 12 Jun 2024 14:14:45
Ideal! Too old.

5.) 12 Jun 2024 14:20:49
Agreed. McLean won't improve us and if Barron is a possible signing then that's a better option on and off the field. The kid should improve in a Rangers environment however, i to believe we need Garcia done and dusted asap, break the bank and get him in for the qualifiers.

6.) 12 Jun 2024 14:22:34
Could the Mclean rumour just have been people mixing him up with Barron? As Mclean doesn't seem to fit the kinda player that PC and NK have been looking at. i'm still shocked PC hasn't signed anyone he has previously worked with I heard a strong rumble a while back he was determined to bring someone he knew and trusted in.

7.) 12 Jun 2024 15:05:28
I’ve no problem with a 1 or two year place holder in McLean being a rangers supporter will give his all but if there’s a large fee involved then no way should we sign him.

8.) 12 Jun 2024 15:28:19
“The kid should improve in a Rangers environment however” - Really? Do many young players improve and develop at Rangers?

Aberdeen probably have a better record of brining through and developing youth than Rangers do. I just hope Barron comes here, can get a game, and does not stagnate or go backwards like so many others.

9.) 12 Jun 2024 15:38:13
Dado he’s absolutely mediocre at best.

10.) 12 Jun 2024 16:28:46
“I’ve no problem with a 1 or two year place holder” - It never works out that way. Rangers bring in a guy to do a job in the short-term. If that older player does a job in the short-term Rangers just keep handing out one year deals and kicking the can down the road. Then one day, we find ourselves having to replace most of an aging squad.

Weir was kept one year too long. McGregor was kept one year too long. Same for Jack. I have no doubt in my mind that we just made the same mistake with Balogun.

These people are never temporary. We keep them until they decline, they became finished, and then they retire.

11.) 12 Jun 2024 16:57:59
I can see the logic in signing someone like McLean, as we need some more established professionals to help the young team bed in, and he's a rangers man. But can't see it happening for us given his wages / the fee that would be required.

12.) 12 Jun 2024 17:10:43
Rather have Barron as long as he’s played regularly.

13.) 12 Jun 2024 18:12:46
I can also see the logic in signing an experienced player to level out the young players being signed but I maybe somewhere along the age bracket of 27/ 28 should be experienced enough.



11 Jun 2024 13:04:48
Rrahmani now follows a cafe in Glasgow that some of the other players follow. The absolute pinnacle of rumour posts you are all welcome! All joking aside this is one that I’d be excited about.


1.) 11 jun 2024 13:58:14
david, let’s not forget, every single year we are to be excited by all of the signings, star had at least 5 down as superstars, we came second again,

we hopefully will find those two players who take us up from second.

2.) 11 Jun 2024 14:08:45
I mean this time last season I’m fairly sure I said I’d rather sign the best players in leagues similar to ours than the worst players in the better leagues. Lammers and Dessers didn’t have great goal records whereas this guy does. Not saying he’ll be a world beater but this is the type of player we should be going for imo.

3.) 11 jun 2024 14:27:49
yes, absolutely dave, we took a few cheaper options

you can talk about desserts 20 odd goals all day, that nearly 40 games and he was absolutely awful as a football player, lammers was a far bettter footballer but doesn’t have the bottle fir here, but i agree never given an opportunity to play as a lone striker, it’s time now to pay for winners, not guys nobody wants and don’t come close to international teams, we need international competitors who are ready to spill blood to succeed, not guys happy to pick up 30k a week and score against dundee or st johnston.

4.) 11 Jun 2024 15:43:12
Agreed Tom neither have what we need going forward.



27 May 2024 14:46:48
Balogun has apparently signed an extension. Not against it whatsoever, low wages, and a good backup. Also a good leader in the dressing room and if Tav and Goldson both do leave would be one of the main candidates to step up as captain.


1.) 27 May 2024 15:06:18
Have to agree with most of that, although he's a leader and great guy around the place I don’t see him being captain as he won’t be in the 11 all the time. He can maintain the levels of Saturday over a long period of games and unfair to expect him to.

Deserves the deal and great option when fit. First choice CB required though.

2.) 27 May 2024 15:06:32
Excellent news if true.

3.) 27 May 2024 15:22:15
Great news. Need players with his experience and leadership to help the younger generation push through ??.

4.) 27 May 2024 15:23:28
Happy with that. Never let's us down. Just wish he was younger.

5.) 27 May 2024 15:27:32
No brainer for me. A reliable deputy for next season as and when we need him.

6.) 27 May 2024 15:37:23
As long as it’s back up and back up only as we can’t get rid of everyone in the one go.
Captain? Why would we give a back up player the captaincy? Just naw.

7.) 27 May 2024 15:45:50
Won't be playing enough games to be captain.

8.) 27 May 2024 15:53:47
I have absolutely no problem whatsoever, if indeed big leon balogun has signed a new 1 year deal to stay with us for another season ?I said at the time gio should have kept him and was happy when he returned under beale, as he should have never have been away in the first place. ?

He very rarely let's you down and is a good centre half and although not an automatic starter, i think he's fantastic to have as part of our first team squad as he adds terrific experience and still the fastest centre half at ibrox. ?

Although not comparing them, big davie weir stayed with us into his forties and was superb. ?I think balogun if he has signed a new deal, is good news for us and he deserves it imo ? I've always rated and liked the big man ???.

9.) 27 May 2024 15:55:53
Might be left of centre, diomande is always shouting and waving his arms about n telling players where to go, or I just might be mentally disturbed to suggest him 4 captain??.

10.) 27 May 2024 16:00:30
Balogun is staying.

Rangers have someone staying in 1D.

11.) 27 May 2024 16:24:20
Fork ? pmsl.

The big man will be a reliable emergency CB. Realistically no decent CB is coming in as 4th choice so no problem with it. And i don't see a future for king unless he goes out on loan.

12.) 27 May 2024 16:26:22
Leon probably the best central defender we have on ability alone.
Fitness wise is his problem.
Good to have as back up with Souttar
2 new starters needed.

13.) 27 May 2024 16:30:03
Dalogun can't be captain if he's 4th choice but glad he's staying on.

14.) 27 May 2024 16:30:29
I agree that a squad player shouldn’t normally be captain but I look at that squad and other than Butland I really don’t see anyone else.

15.) 27 May 2024 16:32:05
John any idea if it's defender cordoba.

16.) 27 May 2024 16:47:34
I'm chuffed with this guys been a terrific player for us leader on the pitch and off it great news ?.

17.) 27 May 2024 16:57:25
Cordoba is expected medical Mon/ tue so bound to be him in 1D.

18.) 27 May 2024 16:59:16
Yes one walter.

19.) 27 May 2024 17:58:17
As a squad player it makes sense.

20.) 27 May 2024 18:51:34
No brainer Balogun, we've given extensions recently not deserved or earned, this one is.

21.) 27 May 2024 19:30:35
He's the only ooc player that should get a deal, the rest have to go.

22.) 27 May 2024 20:15:08
Delighted for Balogun, low wage and solid as backup. Hopefully, we sign a replacement for Goldson and he goes to Saudi.

23.) 27 May 2024 20:34:10
Can't believe what I'm reading. As good as he's been he was done 2 yrs ago. He's rarely been fully fit for more than a couple of games. It's not like he's Davie Weir who was ever present. Let's give Jack and Roofe a new deal while we're at it.

24.) 27 May 2024 20:59:55
Looks like it could be cordoba if rumours are true John. Might be wrong tho. Could be just internet talk.

25.) 27 May 2024 22:11:33
Happy he’s got an extension good enough to be at least back up. Sterling my choice for Captain though, someone who goes into every challenge BELIEVING he will win and expecting to aswell. Never let's us down and leads by example on the pitch regardless of where he plays.

26.) 28 May 2024 08:20:14
Signing Balagon with his injury history is not what we require, why sign someone who is not expected to play a lot of games, as to King not going to make it so why send out on loan, better to just try and find buyer. why do we think other teams will take some of our players on loan as part of an deal as most on here do not think they are good enough for us, so why would others want them.

27.) 28 May 2024 09:59:43
Difference between good enough for Rangers or Kilmarnock gers58.



15 May 2024 19:41:37
Apparently the owner of the club Jefte is at has said they're going to trigger the option to buy him. If we do want him and he has ambitions then surely he turns them down. If not then he wasn’t right for the club anyway.


1.) 15 May 2024 22:18:45
No contest if it came to us or them. If we still want him.

2.) 16 May 2024 05:26:27
Has the transfer embargo been lifted? I thought that was the issue they couldn’t sign him even if they wanted to.

3.) 16 May 2024 07:10:40
Not sure tbh it’s actually quite hard to find anywhere reporting it. Was Derek on the rangers review who’s put a video up saying it.

4.) 16 May 2024 10:01:28
Some guy from Cyprus has stated this on twitter can’t remember his name but apparently knows everything about football over there.

5.) 16 May 2024 20:16:09
We could blow them out the water wages wise I reckon we would pay 2/ 3 times the wages.



13 Feb 2024 14:59:12
Just read on twitter celtic are getting 2,750 seats at ibrox for the next old firm. Anyone know if there’s any truth in it?


1.) 13 Feb 2024 17:24:20
****ing better not be! All for away fans again, it's a must imo. But from the START of NEXT season onwards.

2.) 13 Feb 2024 17:51:46
Would be even sweeter beating them in front of more of there fans. after watching them against st Mirren have no doubt we'll beat them. They were camped in there own box for large parts of the game and still said they were happy with there performance afterwards.

3.) 13 Feb 2024 18:13:07
Can't see anything about it?.

4.) 13 Feb 2024 18:17:16
Must be for the upcoming women’s game because there isn’t any room at Ibrox for that amount of away fans for league matches.

5.) 13 Feb 2024 18:38:03
What section of the stadium are they getting? Hard to give them that number of seats in a segregated area.

6.) 13 Feb 2024 19:07:41
I know people will be against the idea but I fancy our chances at home whether there’s 0 900 or 3000 of them. If we can get 3000 into park head for the last old firm of the season it could make a big difference for us.

7.) 13 Feb 2024 19:16:11
Good news that. Any moving the IB to copladn also is indication it will be back to full allocation at some point.

8.) 13 Feb 2024 19:37:46
Its time to bring them back their silence shall be deafening.

9.) 13 Feb 2024 20:54:08
I agree paul 100%.

We need to get back to having a good amount of old firm away fans back in these games atmosphere is so much better.

10.) 13 Feb 2024 23:29:12
Will always split opinion this subject but the games have died a death without a large number of away fans. i'd like the option of going to piggery too.

11.) 14 Feb 2024 05:04:13
Can't stand them give them nothing but if it changes give us behind goals at piggery not stuck on a corner.

12.) 14 Feb 2024 06:39:44
Give them nothing until we are guaranteed an unrestricted view. I would insist on that if its to return to normal, otherwise beat it.

13.) 14 Feb 2024 07:26:12
I just googled it and it's a story from some rag called the celtic star, wouldn't wipe my a**e with it.

14.) 14 Feb 2024 07:38:17
To be honest it just encourages the loony element of both supporters to damage seats n lavvies, other teams supporters 2, look at what the Hibs scumbags did recently, just ends up costing money and grief.

15.) 14 Feb 2024 07:45:37
Fork we used to shop in the asda close to hampden, the staff there always said the worst support was the hibs fans, they used to walk down the booze aisle smashing bottles and rubbish in the sinks in the toilets. Total scum.

16.) 14 Feb 2024 08:20:43
Aye Jfm spoon burning clowns.

17.) 14 Feb 2024 09:14:27
100% Dado it’s not the same and needs adjusted. Seeing our players score at park head to absolute silence feels so wrong. Even the 900 is rubbish when we score and you can hardly even see them celebrate. How many iconic goals have we had there with 9000 fans going absolutely mental in the background. After Kyogo scored at ibrox at the start of the season the atmosphere died completely. The matches used to be the fans going at each other no matter what was happening on the pitch. I think 3,000 is a realistic outcome for both teams.

18.) 14 Feb 2024 09:56:18
Only place I seen this was a Celtic blog site to be fair, think a euro allocation probably the way forward from next season, would of been fun and games if we had drawn them in quarters of cup tho then a big allocation would of had to be given at either ground, remember a game early 2000s when they got Broomland and all the Govan in the cup, when I started going early 80s they used to get the Broomland and west enclosure (standing ) and a part of mainstand, at parkhead we got over 20,000 tickets the rangers end and a part of their Mai stand.

19.) 14 Feb 2024 10:26:37
It's a winde up. They won't take the 800 we will offer them and I'm happy they won't be in our stadium. For decades the SMSM have said the atmosphere was poisonous and an embarrassment for Scotland, now they want it back because its not the same. How couldn't make these clowns up!

20.) 14 Feb 2024 11:46:29
JFM it actually came from a rangers supporter on twitter.

GMS so you're happy to go to parkhead in a potential title decider without any away fans? Terrible mentality.

21.) 14 Feb 2024 14:33:36
Rangers fans - the UB are a disgrace with their sectarian songs etc and I'm not bothered if they create an atmosphere, ban them etc. ?
Same Rangers fans - I'd love Celtic fans to come back to Ibrox for an Old Firm game with their sectarian bile because the Old Firm games has lost it's atmosphere without them?.

22.) 14 Feb 2024 15:07:50
MPH I agree 100% with your comments. For the record I love the UB and I know a few of them. Personally I wish we would ditch some songs. i. e. Bought a flute and NPOR and a few others. We have some fantastic songs that get the juicies flowing. It's no coincidence that when the stadium is rocking its the new age songs that are being sung. Old fart loyal!

23.) 14 Feb 2024 15:08:13
Mph sectarian bile on both sides but you think the Union bears are fine which is even worse.
Are you telling me the atmosphere isn’t worse now

If both sets of fans just sign the songs without sectarian bile then we have a great atmosphere at the games ?

For old firm games with 2 sets of fans you don’t need to good brigade or the onion bears. Boths of these groups are an embarrassment to their teams.

24.) 14 Feb 2024 15:14:13
Nailed it MPH! The hypocrisy on here is mental at times.

25.) 14 Feb 2024 15:45:26
Correct, NRD. Someone who gets the point.

26.) 14 Feb 2024 15:48:28
Where have I said the UB are fine singing sectarian songs, Storm? I’ll wait.
And you have said you would ban the UB on many occasions whether it affects the atmosphere or not. But are quite willing to invite 7500 Celtic fans with their bike to create an atmosphere.
Irony hypocritical overload???
P. S. Onion Bears is Tim Patter???.

27.) 14 Feb 2024 16:35:05
NRD that's just wrong. Every atmosphere from during a game is NPOR, BMG or 50pF, rightly or wrongly.

28.) 14 Feb 2024 16:41:44
Agree Storm religious and or sectarian bile has nothing to do with football. Aye sing songs create an atmosphere, but leave the sh#t outside. On top of that how much have these fools cost the respective clubs.

29.) 14 Feb 2024 18:42:41
tjn if you thing those songs get the stadium up then you've obviously not been to a game at Ibrox for years. RB Leipzig in the semi not one of those cringe songs was sung and that's a fact. It's more at away games you get them but hardly ever at Ibrox now and I'm thankful for that mate.

30.) 14 Feb 2024 19:12:36
Nothing beats cheering your team on in a hostile arena, we all get that, and prob want it 2, but tbh I can't be ar#ed with all the sh#! that goes with it, some of the loons on both side's live in the dark ages. No place for the garbage that pervades the stands from people who profess to love their club, but cost them money with a religious and sectarian narrative that's decades out of date. Just my humble opinion.

31.) 15 Feb 2024 01:11:35
Apart from aberdeen and ross county at home of course NRD where lousest songs of the night were build my gallows.

32.) 15 Feb 2024 07:29:37
Funny thing MPH and Storm none of the two of you said what you appear to be " discussing" none of the 2 of you utter the exact words" Union Bears are fine singing sectarian songs" in this stream. Just saying.

33.) 15 Feb 2024 11:18:06
a mate of mine sits in BR5 (nearest to the screens) said he had recieved comms from the club that he would be getting moved next season. He is under the impression that section will be used for away fans next season. Could that mean celtic get corner and BF5 and BR5?!

34.) 15 Feb 2024 11:32:51
We offered them 750 seats they sayed no then sayed we could not go to there stadium due to safety concerns would give them **** all

35.) 15 Feb 2024 11:40:24
Paul there are no sectarian language in BMG so I don't know what your point is. Ok it's not a Rangers song per say but I'm talking about NPOR and songs that could getvus a ban in Europe. ie Super Rangers which has been eradicated from the song book. My point is the atmosphere at Leipzig was the best ever and no songs containing sectarian language was sung.

36.) 15 Feb 2024 16:43:57
I have always said onion bears and good brigade they are a joke to both sets of clubs and you big up the onion bears constantly so you are what they are doing is fine. You are saying sectarian bile is fine as that comes along with both sets of groups. They bring atmosphere they can sing what they like ?‍♂️?.

37.) 15 Feb 2024 16:45:50
Some good posts there fork about songs. These idiots don’t need to bring the club down by singing the sectarian bile that some on here seem to think it’s fine because they bring atmosphere.

38.) 15 Feb 2024 17:36:23
Cheers Storm ??.

39.) 15 Feb 2024 17:57:53
NRD I am at every home game. Which song got the fans going yesterday? Fathers advice. The leipzig game was 2 years ago, and it began with Build My Gallows, as all euro songs do. Stop lying to yourself.

Not sure where people are seeing Adam’s Traore being injury prone. He’s played 114 games in the last 3 seasons.


1.) 28 May 2024 11:22:54
David I think people getting mixed up with another traore.

2.) 28 May 2024 12:29:37
It turns out there is another player from Mali, with the exact same name, and is the same age as the boy who has been connected with us. The boy in question plays for Hull, and his injury history is horrific.

3.) 28 May 2024 12:34:43
There is two. One is Spanish and the other Malian I’m sure Davidb.

4.) 28 May 2024 12:57:13
They all keep thinking of the hench one at Fulham formerly of Wolves.

5.) 28 May 2024 12:58:25
Makes sense.

6.) 28 May 2024 14:48:46
Must be a John Smith name of the football world, few Ronaldo’s out there as well are we in for any of them.



12 May 2024 10:02:26
I’ve been seeing some people lose confidence in the manager and now the dust has somewhat settled from yesterday. The big question that I keep asking myself is did we genuinely have a group of players good enough to go and win that league? The answer ultimately is no and the manager is still due criticism for team selections etc. but he got every last drop out of this squad and to even get us into a title race is an achievement in itself.

Looking at the teams yesterday, the only one from the starting lineup who’d definitely start for Celtic is Butland. That’s a major concern and although some may disagree with managers selection etc. that says everything we need to know. The squad simply isn’t good enough. We have to back the manager now. Having said that if we go into next season with a core of the same duds with too many battle scars then on Clement’s head it will be.


1.) 12 May 2024 11:53:10
Good post David.

2.) 12 May 2024 13:19:13
Well said David, but surely it is as much down to the Board to back Clement as it is to him and if he ends up with any of the perennial failures still in the team because the funds aren't available then the Board must equally carry the can.
At the very least he needs a new back four, at least one quality defensive midfield player and two wingers + backup, and we haven't even touched on attacking midfield and forwards.

3.) 12 May 2024 14:18:49
Ur right David I said something similar earlier.



11 May 2024 15:34:24
Wonder what happened with Cantwell I wonder if something has been said behind the scenes when he found out he wasn’t starting. I’d be very surprised if he was here next season.


1.) 11 May 2024 16:01:07
David cantwell isn't good enough he wouldn't get on the bench for other mob.

2.) 11 may 2024 16:03:55
and what happened to our centre half.

3.) 11 May 2024 16:06:55
Stevieg2 we don't have players to play any other way. Most were signed for beale's " possession " football that doesn't work in Scotland. We need pace and quick thinkers.

4.) 11 May 2024 16:07:31
Correct onewalter. But remember he is a talented footballer ?.



11 May 2024 11:21:19
That lineup is very concerning.




10 May 2024 10:35:44
Anyone got a sneaky suspicion Sima might have a part to play tomorrow? Someone can correct me if I’m wrong but I’m sure he was back in individual training at the start of the week. Given it was only a short time out he could be ready to at least play a part tomorrow. Might just be wishful thinking on my part.


1.) 10 May 2024 13:56:03
Never mind lol PC said he’s injured still. Silva it probably will be then. 90th minute winner then a dive in front of the animals in the corner like Suarez did to Moyes a few years ago will do me just fine please Fabio.
