With the talk on here lately about Connor barron from Aberdeen. I'm sitting watching the semi final with my focus on him. what a great young player he is, he's absoloutly everywhere, always looking for the ball, playing great through balls and passes and tracking back. looking at him is like watching raskin. if this boy is available to sign a pre contract in January then its a must to offer him a contract. This boy wouldn't look out of place playing for gers.


1.) 04 Nov 2023 23:47:15
Is he out of contract in the summer? I've seen him a few times he looks decent and if he's free definitely worth a punt. Could maybe be a replacement for jack.

2.) 04 Nov 2023 23:57:41
Yes believe he's not re signed his contract offer from the dons. I'm basing my opinion on watching him for 65 mins. in my personal opinion if gers bought him he would be head and shoulders above any other young player to play regular foe gers. if you haven't noticed I'm very impressed with his style of play as its very combativness.

3.) 05 Nov 2023 00:05:31
Pension Jack off asap, and get this lad in
We need to be looking to the next 3 or 4 years not backwards to the ER room.

4.) 05 Nov 2023 07:04:19
100% agree on this one of he's a freebie and if we do it would make sense to let jacko go.

5.) 05 Nov 2023 08:54:59
I know Barron is rated pretty highly within the Scotland set up, and he's exactly the type of player we should be targeting.

Biggest difference between Barron and our own youth is that Barron has played almost 80 first team games already - we just can't provide the same platform for players to develop.

6.) 05 Nov 2023 11:41:35
I’d be happy with Baron the exact kind of player we should be investing in. Can see with Hickey Ferguson Doig etc etc that there’s talent in this division and we should be sweeping them up before the bigger leagues come calling. Him, Rice and Raskin could be our defensive midfielders for years to come and all have potential for big sell on. Would like the young lad from killie as well.

7.) 05 Nov 2023 13:09:05
If this boy is indeed out of contract at the end of the season (can anyone confirm this? ), and we can sign him on a pre contract, I'd be doing everything in my power to get the boy to sign. There is definitely something about Barron, and I would love us to sign him.

8.) 05 Nov 2023 14:48:47
If we want him I’m sure his agent will know about it and rangers will have an idea of what his plans are for his future.

9.) 05 Nov 2023 16:36:55
Todd Cantwell to be sold in January the new manager obviously doesn't rate him, unless he's injured to take him off and keep Lammers on say's it all.

10.) 05 Nov 2023 17:16:22
Two things, Greeley, I really don't believe that Cantrell is fully fit and he had been booked. Once he is back to full fitness he will be a major asset to the team.

11.) 05 Nov 2023 17:47:19
Absolute nonsense Gresley.

12.) 05 Nov 2023 18:07:03
I also hope it's nonsense but the manager's comments after the game hinting that Cantwell was taken off partially because he was on a yellow slightly tenuous also he said it was tactical surly moving Cantwell into the middle and subbing Lammers would have been the more obvious decision.

13.) 05 Nov 2023 19:23:51
I personally don't think Cantwell has been playing great, perhaps lack of match fitness is the reason. The manager made a great decision at half time to bench him and bring on SW. Lammers still offers nothing.

14.) 05 Nov 2023 20:56:25
I agree with Berkshireblue, sometimes people try to read too much into things. I don’t think he’s been fully fit this season.

15.) 05 Nov 2023 22:47:47
What is the message to rice if we sign this lad? Would have to be mental to sign for us right now.

Young players need to be playing not parked on a bench to fill a quota.

Looked at Hibs lineup the other day 1scottish player our teams are not developing players buying foreign duds even though it is not improving Thier results.

16.) 05 Nov 2023 22:55:04
Bar 72

Do you know raskin since he arrived has had far more injuries than jack.

Jack is a solid option for rangers and domestically trained something that we couldn't fill this year getting rid of jack right now would just be idiotic.

17.) 05 Nov 2023 22:56:21
Gresley loyal . manager himself says he's keeping him for Prague and didn't want him to get sent of for final either smart play from manager.

18.) 06 Nov 2023 01:43:23
Gofor rice is 16 do you expect us to throw him into the starting 11 and play him every week? Even if we brought Barron in and sold him after 2 seasons Rice would only be 18/ 19. On a free it’s a no brainer.

19.) 06 Nov 2023 09:43:30
Barron's a no brainer if we can and rice will continue to develop. I think if do do get Barron jack will go. It's just my opinion but makes sense and Barron would also have a sell on value if he does well.

20.) 06 Nov 2023 09:53:52
So we shouldn't sign a great young Scottish talent because it might upseet some1 or send a wrong message lol. so if we sign another player in January what message is that to existing first team players lol. what a stupid reply to my thread lol. we sign him because he's a talented plplayer. that's why.

21.) 06 Nov 2023 10:29:46
Gofor so we don't sign a very good young Scottish player because we don't know how it will effect Rice.

22.) 06 Nov 2023 12:18:23
Players we should be looking at also are Kye Rowles and Alex Cochrane
Would be great additions and sell ridvan and Davies.

23.) 06 Nov 2023 13:23:02
I didn't listen to that interview with PC but I get the impression that TC doesn't fit into Philippe Clement's plans unfortunately, especially as Todd gets it playing for Rangers and wants to be here.

24.) 06 Nov 2023 14:27:29
Todd cantwell will fit into clements plans perfectly well.

He had a bit of strapping in the week leading hot game then got a silly early booking.
Clement took him off as 1. He wasn’t ? fit anyway and 2. Had picked up a daft booking and the games tight at 0-0.

Was the correct decision to make.

If cantwell was fit and hadn’t been booked he’d have put wright in for lammers and moved Todd inside to the 10.

Wright was coming in for tactical reasons but the choice of Todd and lammers was easy due to above reasons.

Todd will be a regular starter for us going forward and a star player.

25.) 06 Nov 2023 15:48:18
No Davie but do you expect Barron to start either?

I've said many times I think rangers plan is to sign players young like rice keep them at the club 3 years regardless and then move them on so if they turn out good in future career we can bring them back as a club trained player.

26.) 06 nov 2023 19:42:22
Goforbigcf2, you don't have spout some nonsense mate, usually 3 at a time,

we don't sign players in case it annoys someone else, that boy is 16, whoever we sign won't affect him.

27.) 06 Nov 2023 20:25:32
Would be as well to give Cantwell a yellow card before the game starts! Boy has no brains when it comes to tackling.

28.) 06 Nov 2023 20:46:52
Goforbig. He's gona be a free agent. he's young, he's Scottish and fits the bill for euro sqaud. Do I expect barron to start. no not every game at first, have you been impressed with raskin combative nature when he plays well Connor barron plays the exact same way. He's played heaps of games in ßcotland and in Europe, can even compare him to Bailey rice, barron is a first team starter at aberdeen.

29.) 07 Nov 2023 01:02:10
Agreed harrower Clement will not be having that, seen him react watching the game back when Cantwell was booked.

30.) 07 Nov 2023 10:37:56
The message that signing barron would send to rice is, if you are young and Scottish we want you in the team so make sure you standout and always raise your game above those around you. If rice makes it he has raised it if not we need the best we can get.

31.) 07 Nov 2023 17:18:51
Always felt the model we should be adopting is signing the best players from our league young or old with Lewis Ferguson, Doig, Hickey, to name a few who have went for fees we can afford and have instantly shot up in value.
If we sign this young player from Aberdeen we give him a chance and he’s not ready you loan him back out to other side in our league so he can’t play against us while he continues to develop.
Even experienced players like Shankland, Nesbit, Porteous and Boyle would be good additions that are less risky than foreign players.

32.) 08 Nov 2023 15:21:51
I didn't say it's not in rangers best interests to sign the player!

I like how you all try to create your own narrative

I was speaking from player development veiw

For rangers it makes sense to sign these guys as we need Scottish trained players from rangers point of view it's smart.

And on raskin the facts are there for you all to check there's nothing wrong with his ability my point again was why would we get rid of jack a SCOTTISH TRAINED player when we don't have enough of them already it also doubles into my point a few months ago of jack would be more available when needed and not be injured as much when he's a back up player.

Which is turning out to be the case so makes no sense to get rid of him right now.

33.) 08 Nov 2023 15:23:40
Tom again your full of ? when did I ever say we wouldn't sign him in case it annoys someone else

Only one talking nonsense hear is your

You just keep making up lies to make yourself feel better though eh!

34.) 08 Nov 2023 15:25:35
The Glasgow rangers i agree we should be signing Scottish players

People here are totally missing the point that I'm talking from a players own development point of view rather than what I want.

35.) 08 Nov 2023 15:30:16
Beale65 (star in sky) you are another who changes what I say to try twist things.

I see only positive for rangers signing Scottish players but I was talking from a players point of view

Why can't people think without Thier blue tinted glasses for a second.

Or even read the post and not make up ? in Thier head.

36.) 08 Nov 2023 17:20:33
Gofor what are you talking about now? you think we shouldn't sign Barron because it will effect rice, nonsense to me.

37.) 09 Nov 2023 17:22:09
My star in sky (Beale65) did I say that no. I said it sends the wrong message to him, especially if he comes in ahead of rice.

Also Davie, how is Barron a free if he is under 24years old is the rule on free agents not age dependent or on other club releasing him? In other words, there would be a fee. Nominal probably, but still a fee.

Look, I agree with your assessment he's a decent player for his age and a good low risk signing, but we must find a way to keep the likes of rice happy who I feel has more potential than Barron.

Even if we get him a good loan move with guaranteed game time.

Lol there is Beale65 (star in sky) saying folk don't know what they are talking about again. Nice name change Beale65. ?

Where is this quality player Dowell that I told you Norwich fans hardly seen and now rangers have hardly seen. ?

What about your constantly at start of season saying all players signed where quality when I hold you at the time as a realist not all transfers work your lucky if one or two turn out good? ?

You like to try and say others are clueless to deflect from your own failed points or profile name ?.

38.) 11 Nov 2023 16:32:31
Gresley the manager played a blinder by subbing him. He was awful and Wright changed the game, then against Slavia Cantwell has his best game. Yet you still seem to think taking Lammers off was better. Leave the management to PC, yeh!



06 Jul 2023 13:30:54
Does any1 know if ciffentues has defenitly signed a pre contract as can't see anywhere that he has signed.


1.) 06 Jul 2023 13:54:56
Will be similar to Cantwell and Raskin where it’s not announced but it’s in place and until a fee is agreed or not going to be reached it’ll be announced.

2.) 06 Jul 2023 13:56:09
Terms are agreed. Clubs still to agree early release fee. Otherwise he doesn’t sign till Jan.

This will not be concluded until much later this month.

3.) 06 Jul 2023 13:57:12
Was in news outlets don’t think rangers have announced it yet as we are still trying to get him in this summer.

4.) 06 Jul 2023 14:09:35
Nothing officially confirmed.

5.) 06 Jul 2023 14:12:19
I have never heard or read it but I have already read that lafc want 1.5 million for him.

6.) 06 Jul 2023 14:38:03
Probably because we paid same for raskin and cantwell and clubs now trying it on expecting we will cave.

7.) 06 Jul 2023 15:12:56
Typical rangers risk loosing cifuentes over 1mill penny-pinching

8.) 06 Jul 2023 15:33:25
Gofor think the key difference is that we really needed reinforcements in Jan for the midfield and it was easy to call our bluff. As much as I’d like Cifuentes I don’t think we really need him at the moment so we have more cards in our hand than we did with the other 2.

9.) 06 Jul 2023 16:17:09
Heard Beale is concentrating on 2 other deals that will be concluded late today or over weekend. Heard cifuentes could be announced in 10 days time at the earliest. LAFC have decided to keep playing him but if he picks up an injury it will be January before we sign him.

10.) 06 Jul 2023 16:17:13
ulster, we don't just give clubs what they want it's not how transfers work. as others have said we are in a strong bargaining position on this one and both clubs will compromise and meet somewhere in the middle.

11.) 06 Jul 2023 16:18:16
Ulsterblue if he has signed a pre contract agreement then how can we be at risk of losing him.
Do you really just want us to throw money away. This penny pinching nonsense gets on my wick.

12.) 06 Jul 2023 16:27:05
Ulster u don’t seem to understand how transfers work.

13.) 06 Jul 2023 17:06:12
Rangers aren't penny pinching they are playing the game. get the player to sign the pre contract then we hold the cards when it comes to negotiating the fee, LAFC can't risk being greedy or we can walk away and wait 6 months and he arrives for free. Rangers are doing the right thing just like they did with Nico Raskin ?.

14.) 06 Jul 2023 17:09:35
Ulster you bring nothing positive to this site.

15.) 06 Jul 2023 19:31:21
Borna - he's either one of the other lot or he does it for a reaction. either way ignore him.

16.) 06 Jul 2023 20:21:08
Ulster don’t listen to the witches of eastwick. We are all impatient for new signings to be announced. This has nothing to do with understanding contract negotiations, being a left footer or being negative. Lad just wants to feel we are almost ready for the new season. After last year i can understand impatience.

17.) 06 Jul 2023 21:25:46
Unbeliever window open for 1 week we have signed 5 players there's nothing to be impatient about. majority of our business done before we even go to training camp we are bang on target ?.



09 Jun 2023 13:01:36
Online reports stating cifentues is supposbly travelling to glasgow.


1.) 09 Jun 2023 13:43:05
Him on Monday davie Dessers soon as well, getting told their will be at least three signings next week maybe even four, he's not messing about.

2.) 09 Jun 2023 13:56:18
Any idea who the 3rd (or 4th) will be?

3.) 09 Jun 2023 13:59:32
Agree with that 56. the boss has clearly been spending the last few months doing the ground work to get these guys in quick. So most of it all will be in by preseason starting… a lot different from the last few windows. xx.

4.) 09 Jun 2023 14:01:46
Beale exciting times but my only worry is there isn't a lot of time to gel before cl qaulifiers. here's hoping the players gel quickly as.

5.) 09 Jun 2023 14:20:36
Other teams will be in same boat Davie. I hate when I hear that gel excuse we either are good enough or not simple.

6.) 09 Jun 2023 14:26:39
Could be a problem davie, but think he plays Tavernier Soutter Yilmaz Cantwell Lundstram Raskin Roofe maybe even Sakala in the qualifying, no names CP but Beale meet Trusty yes seen the poor reports on him yesterday, meet Maja meet Davies but unlikely to be him now, would be very happy with Trusty and Maja.

7.) 09 Jun 2023 14:27:57
He has also meet whittaker could be him.

8.) 09 Jun 2023 14:42:24
It would be great to get our business done early, give the players a chance to settle.

9.) 09 Jun 2023 14:54:07
What about Leighton Clarkson ( Liverpool) who was on loan at Aberdeen last season?

10.) 09 Jun 2023 15:04:07
Gofor common man obviously new signing takes time to gel with others players they've never played with, hopefully done very fast, forgot Jack davie another one.

11.) 09 Jun 2023 15:11:46
Davies has been offered a new deal at Everton.

12.) 09 Jun 2023 15:33:14
Good player copland but think we've got plenty midfielders now.

13.) 09 Jun 2023 15:58:18
We keep hearing such and such, does not fit into Beales system so no good, so should gel quite quickly as all players brought in will be familiar with system Beale wants them to play.



08 Jun 2023 13:34:48
Any news on cifuentes. seems strange lafc would play him last night incase he was injured. any info people.


1.) 08 Jun 2023 14:30:22
Strange I thought he was here for medical after saying goodbyes, apparently not.

2.) 08 Jun 2023 15:56:45
They have every right there player at end of day.

3.) 08 Jun 2023 16:31:11
Christensen. OBVIOSLY. ?‍♂️?‍♂️?‍♂️?‍♂️?‍♂️. They had every right to play him in the cup final but they chose to put him on the bench. so without idiotic replys has any1 got any info as originally asked.

4.) 08 Jun 2023 16:51:29
The Cifuented deal is done, that's all that needs to known Davie

5.) 08 Jun 2023 17:08:08
Hagi how do you know?

6.) 08 Jun 2023 17:19:31
Laudrup, , OBVIOUSLY, I hope your right lol. Just seems strange if there gona risk him then why not do it in the cup final.

7.) 08 Jun 2023 17:38:52
Cifuentes being injured. Would that ruin deal or just mean we take the free transfer in Jan?

8.) 09 Jun 2023 03:07:04
He isn't seriously injured, taken off for a light issue, he will be announced very soon, OBVIOUSLY lol
Absolute steal for what we are getting as opposed to fee paid, we ain't waiting till Jan, that's a given, he is ours already, playing out his final games before arriving in glasgow to complete the neccesities then announced the following day, will be all over the media etc early next week.

9.) 09 Jun 2023 04:31:28
Perhaps he was busy finalising the majority of the deal prior to the cup final, and not 100% focused for that game, now that's done he has played his last game before being announced as our new player, you will all find out its a done deal, early next week when Beale does his next reveal ;) he is ours, final confirmation to come right before the window opens then expect several announcements in succesion and OBVIOUSLY lol further additions once the cash flow increases with the departures of, Davies, Wright, Colak, Kamara for starters, don't be surprised if Barisic, Lundstram and Sakala go too.



31 May 2023 09:27:39
Going by online reports, all terms are now agreed after yesterday's ongoing talks with butland. that's some bowman's we now got, dowell, sterling and butland all on frees. Looks like mb actually has got the gift if the gab and persasive powers as said cantwell.


1.) 31 May 2023 09:47:26
If deal for butland is done it might not be announced till after man utd fa cup final.

2.) 31 May 2023 10:00:00
Not so much gift of the gab davie sounds like he explains what he is looking for from players involved.

3.) 31 May 2023 10:19:44
Will be next week after cup final at earliest. Looking like same for cifuentes after LAs 2 legged final.

4.) 31 May 2023 10:23:08
Al tell ye Michael Beale is pulling off the biggest summer of change since dick advocaat took over from sir Walter smith back in 98.
And he’s doing it with no money so far.
I genuinely see a power shift coming in Glasgow this coming season.
Big ange looks like going to spurs with their new dof his old buddy and previous workmate with city group. I noticed he’s not distancing himself from it. I think he will go to spurs.
If we get trusty cifuentes or davies or both if lunny doesn’t resign. 2 quality strikers and palma I think it will be some team and squad and I can only imagine how good we will be the following summer after another 2 windows. Exciting times.

5.) 31 May 2023 10:55:40
No Money¿¿¿
Dyu really think these guys are coming for the weather?
It might be paid over 3 or 4 years but it is costing plenty and the SELLING will hopefully cover some of it initially .

6.) 31 May 2023 11:08:11
What he means is yes there coming for no money as in we ain't bought them for 3.4.5 mill there free agents yes they might be on 20.30 gramd but that's alfie n kent greegs etc wages being paid out for hopefully quality winning titles and cup players.

7.) 31 May 2023 11:52:23
They will also be getting big signing on fees also a player free is never free.

8.) 31 May 2023 11:58:59
Don't know about everyone else but the Butland signing is slightly giving me the fear.
No doubt he was a brilliant prospect at Stoke but not having played for a while is giving me cause for concern.
Trust the manager 100% though.

9.) 31 May 2023 12:16:15
Big Ange Stevie g3? Is that how you refer to that other teams manager?

10.) 31 May 2023 12:30:10
NRD r u concerned re wright no games two years.

11.) 31 May 2023 12:46:13
I agree NRD I want to stick with mccrorrie but u also will put my trust and faith in beale. Feel sorry for wee mccrorrie if butland is signed I hope he stays and fights and eventually gets the no.1 jersey.

12.) 31 May 2023 13:02:57
Piroe is swansea striker look really good.

13.) 31 May 2023 13:03:40
I really don't get how people are so excited by our current signings I don't. see the policy being any different to previous seasons we always here how these young players or bosmans from England are brilliant we've been doing it from Warburton years and still results not really good enough.

Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results ?

That's not me saying they won't be good enough but I'd be a bit more cautious and realistic Celtic are yet to start spending and I can see them adding quality signings rather than what player happens to be on a free that season.

We seem to be just throwing stuff at wall to see what sticks.

14.) 31 May 2023 13:05:32
Yeah the new guys will be coming for decent wages but we have just released 5 of our top earners so their wages have been freed up. Getting guys for no transfer fees and wages only is a good deal and does leave money in the budget for some buys when the window opens . There will be one or two sales also still to come which should bring in fees and release more money from the wage budget.

15.) 31 May 2023 13:12:33
Hopefully it's target quality player for specific position (starter) we need to be signing more starters rather than squad players.

Example sterling what is he if not a squad player if he plays right side defense then he's back up to Tav or back up to goldson or back up to souttar

If he plays left side we are playing him out of position although he can do it doesn't mean he should should be signing players for Thier strongest position.

16.) 31 May 2023 13:19:05
For me butland sa good move he was ounce rated at 22 millions pound what’s a lot for a keeper I remember him at stoke he was class so there’s a decent keeper there i think it’s a good move and with having mccrorie there as for players added it’s more squad players the now except butland am sure we’ll get first team Starters in when transfer window opens we all noo what’s needed am sure Beale does to.

17.) 31 May 2023 13:42:26
Goforbig Warburtons signings were lower half championship quality if that.

We’ve signed Cantwell who was being touted for £40m a few seasons ago, Butland has been capped for England and an ankle break stopped him from being a top top goalie. It’s not a fair comparison to make regarding Beale and Warburton signings.

18.) 31 May 2023 13:49:57
For our budget Butland is the best keeper we could have got.

19.) 31 May 2023 14:03:06
Yeah no competitive games for 2 years concerns me slightly. Rhis signing could be either brilliant or disastrous.
@Dizzieraskin totally agree that we need to trust Beale. He spotted Bassey so Sterling could have loads of potential.

20.) 31 May 2023 14:37:47
Nrd how do you know he hasn't played in the reserve league.

21.) 31 May 2023 15:40:21
Every transfer carries risk as we have seen in the recent past and indeed in the more distant past however for me, the signings that Beale has made since taking over and the names that we are being linked with are exciting and for once I am looking forward to the new players that are coming in.
Notwithstanding the wages and the cost of the signing on fee the deals done so far and those rumoured to be imminent are of a much better quality with relatively young players that have been in and around the EPL and quality Internationalists coming in while at the same time we say goodbye to players that were past their sell by date or just not good enough.
Hopefully, once we have completed the signing of a goalkeeper and a midfield player we will be able to look forward to the signing of two quality strikers and a couple of wingers! What's not to be excited about!

22.) 31 May 2023 17:02:20
roger federer YES mate that's how I reder to the guy, big ange. sorry if that somehow affects your life mate.
for what it matters i think he comes across as a gentleman, a really nice guy, always gives an honest oppinion and i respect the guy from what i know of him.
im not blinded by bigoted hatred to just disrespect someone because of which team they choose to support play for or manage.
sorry to have upset u mate. hope your ok ??.

23.) 31 May 2023 17:21:59
Davie I have no idea if he has played a reserve game, however if you are comparing a reserve game to a proper competitive game then that concerns me more! ?‍♂️.

24.) 31 May 2023 17:37:41
Big Ange is it aye, referring to his waistline of course that hefty he can't keep his head up when he's talking to anyone .

25.) 31 May 2023 17:44:54
Fat Angie will be Spurs boss by next wednesday and they will appoint Kennedy to replace him. players will be sold and replaced with lesser quality. it's what they do

26.) 31 May 2023 18:20:36
I have to say, I am really shocked at the excitement at our two signings so far.

They seem to be the same profile as the signings we 'chased' Wilson out for?

This isn't a criticism of the players, it's just not the reaction I expected.

27.) 31 May 2023 18:25:40
Copland of you look at my statement I didn't just say Beale . gio and Gerrard in that too.

And it's definitely same policy it's just who's available free when it's very hard to build a winning team like that

My point is you have to target weak starting positions and sometimes have to pay for that.

You can get lucky with bosman now and then timing wise and your needs but they are usually bosmans for a reason.

28.) 31 May 2023 18:26:30
Copland tell me how sterling any different from say worall or as I used to call him worryall.

29.) 31 May 2023 18:41:00
Wright does not play with b team, too old, he plays in many off the closed door games

I did say our signings will be underwhelming, hope they can play a bit though.

30.) 31 May 2023 18:45:07
INTR his name is Tasos, let’s at least get his name right.

31.) 31 May 2023 19:08:22
Guys, the transfer window isn't even open yet, won't be for another couple of weeks. The fact is we're getting our free transfers in early doors and they are obviously players that Beale knows and likes, which is good enough for me. I'm no getting wild with excitement because I've no seen them play but I'm happy that we're getting work done and looking fwd to more coming in.

32.) 31 May 2023 19:32:00
Worrall is a quality CB. He got a lot of stick while he was up here because he was keeping a fan favourite ( Katic) out the team.

Sterling is a young versatile defender who came through the best academy in England, equally good with both feet and can defend and attack. A really good signing.

When you say their Bosmans for a reason, that used to be the case, when C.V. happened that changed everything. Look at the amount of top quality players who have moved the past few years after letting their contracts run down.

33.) 31 May 2023 19:45:47
Well said StevieG3…. a wee touch of class. ?.

34.) 31 May 2023 19:54:36
EHL Who exactly is it you want us to sign? We ain't exactly rolling in cash incase you don't know so you better get used to us dealing in OOC players, players who have been up there and lost their way a bit ( Cantwell) and players from EPL youth clubs who are not wanted.
We may sign 1 or 2 players for £5million or so but we ain't signing 7 players for £50million.
I think some of our fans forget what happened 10 years ago!

35.) 31 May 2023 20:04:49
NRD, I didn't criticise the signings - just said that I'm surprised at the positive reaction to them.

My surprise isn't based on the calibre of the players, as I've never seen them play - I'm surprised as they are typical of the signings that many were openly against.

I'm looking forward to seeing how we shape up next season.

36.) 31 May 2023 20:22:22
Dowell is a very good player ehl, you'll see it soon.

37.) 31 May 2023 20:23:00
Horrendous take GoFor and shows a complete lack of understanding. First of all we can’t sign players in-contract when the window isn’t open. Second, it’s highly likely those we can have been scouted and watched for some time. Thirdly, we will spend money where it’s needed, that’s not up for debate. Next, these are players who have either big potential resale, been previously high value players in-contract, or both. It’s May, we’ve released a lot of players with more to go, and I’ll trust the Manager that we’ve begun to replace departures with better, with more to follow. You’re a master at criticism of others but this horrendous take at least shows you’re human.

38.) 31 May 2023 21:18:22
Gentleman? He’s a slimey greaseball who never misses a chance to have a dig.

39.) 31 May 2023 21:50:13
EHL no one more so than me was pissin my pants last season with what I thought was great business and look how that turned out.
I'm certainly not getting over excited but if we can sign players to make the impact that Cantwell and Raskin have made then I think we will be ok.
If we sign say 8 players not all will be hits but if 5 or 6 make an impact then that's a good strike rate.

40.) 31 May 2023 22:01:55
Hope so Bealeabout - I'm quietly optimistic after the Raskin and Cantwell deals, plus seeing the potential in Souttar and Yilmaz post injury.

41.) 31 May 2023 23:24:40
Worrall? the guy was a bomb scare.

42.) 31 May 2023 23:49:52
No Copland he got a lot of stick cause he was gash. decent in European games when ball was all on the deck I'll give you that but couldn't handle it in Scotland.
Lol I still remember Kenny miller running right between him and goldson as they both stood and watched the ball bounce.

Hate people revising players history just cause he's in premier league he must be a good player ? total bull he wasn't good enough and couldn't adapt to physical football or high balls.

And mark44 you can't say butland the best we could have got

1.he hasn't played yet

2.there may have been other possible targets we don't know about or were not willing to pay a fee for

3. Also butland not really played enough for a proper judgement players can easily lose it when they've been out to long look what happened to klos for rangers once confidence goes it's not easy to restore.

43.) 31 May 2023 23:50:51
I agree it's a no brainer to sign him on a free though mark. but!

I'd still be giving mccrorie first shot as the man in possession of the gloves.

44.) 01 Jun 2023 09:09:08
Butland isn't good enough for Palace or Man U and the former have a current keeper turning in to a comedy routine, but if Beale believes the guy is right then I'm ok with it.

Hahaha i saw that davie. Brilliant.

3.) 04 Feb 2024 08:38:00
Wes would be better concentrating on his game, watch him every week and he is a dreadful keeper. Him and Onana at man utd must be the two worst keepers in the epl.

4.) 04 Feb 2024 09:12:36
John Fleck has always done the same there as well.

5.) 04 Feb 2024 09:59:25
Fleck does the same.



18 Dec 2023 21:06:35
So it's now confirmed the club world Cup is only co efficiants points earned in the champions league that will count towards teams participating.
So basicly the super league then.
The rich get richer as they say. How can any of the lesser teams in Europe compete. they can't. They might have a good run in champions league in a season but can't do it 5 years in a row unless your 1 of the top teams with billionaire owners.


1.) 19 Dec 2023 07:15:51
Exactly davie it's pathetic but in all walks of life nowadays, money is the number one priority, be it wars, C.V.s, energy. Its a sorry world in all aspects we live in unfortunately mate.

2.) 19 Dec 2023 08:40:20
Was always going to go down that route uefa don’t want teams from Scotland in it.

3.) 19 Dec 2023 10:09:47
I've always said the rules would change if the 'wrong' teams were likely to qualify.
No surprise there, we move on.

4.) 19 Dec 2023 10:11:55
Davie, the sad part of this, is if lesser clubs where allowed in, it would make more clubs richer and make the computation more attractive.

5.) 19 Dec 2023 10:41:29
They still don’t want that White horse. They have been told by the usual clubs the ring fence them and not let anyone else get a slice. The game is bent on that front. Totally bent.

The Champs League to watch is boring as f**k! We’ll see if the new format is any better.

Let’s just make sure it’s us opening the new comp just like we did in 92/ 93, that would be fitting.

6.) 19 Dec 2023 12:55:20
It was Scottish media get story going, German media I’m May said it was only CL points that counted.

7.) 19 Dec 2023 12:59:05
White horse that's exactly my point. They don't want this tho. how can any team or country compete with the supposive big clubs nowadays. they quite simply can't because they keep making it harder and harder for the lesser clubs. aka champions league yet if you finish 5th 8n England you get champions league lol.

8.) 19 Dec 2023 13:39:50
Its easy really. Just boycott it. Don't watch it. Let them pull a starbucks. I haven't watched champions league (rangers excepted) since C.V.. It will be easy not to watch this super league. I barely watched the world cup in qatar. I watched canada's group games and the final and that's it. I used to invest so much time in the past (2 weeks off in summer to align with the world cup) but the money grabbing is a big turn off. And the fact that a team outside of Europe/ S. America hasn't won the WC yet is a big statement to me about the corruption. even a blind squirrel gets a nut once in a while, but not at a fifa tournament.

9.) 19 Dec 2023 14:58:02
Ed is there not a German company taking UEFA to the European Court for Monopoly of European football?

{Ed001's Note - do you mean A22? That is the Super League company.}

Fabulous Davie.

The way it looks just now, appointing PB may be the best decision Rangers have made in many years.

I know I keep saying this, but the value of Celtic's team is falling all the time and ours keeps rising.

The January transfer market is vital for them, not so vital for us.



16 Dec 2023 21:06:41
Question people. I know there was talk of gers possibly being involved in the new club world Cup but we definitely had to get out of our European group for that to happen. Has any1 got any more info on this. I reckon it's a long shot I know but with rankings out now and rangers 3rd for last 5 years Co efficient points only behind man City and Bayern Munich, then surely we got to be still in contention?


1.) 16 Dec 2023 22:04:35
Treat it as pie in the sky and if it happens it's a welcome bonus.

2.) 16 Dec 2023 22:59:06
Forget it davie, if it happens it happens, would not be surprised if the rules change if the 'wrong ' teams don't make it.

3.) 16 Dec 2023 23:52:05
Only Champs League coefficient counted pretty sure this was confirmed couple of months ago.



15 Dec 2023 20:37:29
Europa league prize money.
Group stage qaulification. 3.17m
Group stage win x 3 £550.037
Group stage draw x 2 £183.356
First in the group £960.361
Last 16 1.32 million
Crazy to think winning last night and topping the group made us over 2.2 million in prize money.


1.) 15 Dec 2023 21:08:24
On top of CL drop out money and 10 year co efficient money.

2.) 15 Dec 2023 23:32:04
And gate/ TV money?

Sorry ferried lol. if we had a couple of strikers now banging them in would you even mention lammers or cantwell. in your opinion we prob need a new keeper as he's not scored. strikers are striker. creative midfielders/ no 110 create lol. Easy to blame others in your own life choices?.
