An old sports editor colleague of mine believes we are already in talks with Oli McBurnie and Paddy McNair.


1.) 18 Apr 2024 23:09:04
Oli McBurnie Is a no brainer for me 27 years old and this season so far 20 league games 6 goals and 3 assists and would be a free transfer I believe.

2.) 19 Apr 2024 06:37:07
Wonder what wages would be required and how it would effect our wage structure.
Like idea of McNair but in balance re Mc Burnie and the baggage ?.

3.) 19 Apr 2024 07:21:32
Big target man n Rangers daft, not that that's got anything to do with it, but could he possibly do a job?

4.) 19 Apr 2024 07:25:14
Mcnair 29 next week, Tfm saying 20k a week BF2.

5.) 19 Apr 2024 08:27:39
I don't get this with McBurnie, I think he is awful, only reason people talk about him to rangers because he supports the team. Shankland and Miovski are far better options, yes u will need to pay but McBurnie is awful, if he was doing well he would be in the Scotland squad, he hasn't been near it in absolute year.

6.) 19 Apr 2024 09:56:30
If we are signing a Rangers daft Scottish centre forward I’d take Shankland all day long over McBurnie. Above all else we need strikers who are a goal threat, nobody better in our league than Shankland at bringing that and he’s not going to cost as much going into his last year of contract.

7.) 19 Apr 2024 10:28:40
McBurnie is quicker and sharper than Shankland, that's not difficult though . Knocking people about scoring and assisting in the top league . Shankland is at Gorgie for a reason and if he's any sense he will stay there. No club in the league McBurnie is in will be trying to sign Shankland, or the league under it .

8.) 19 Apr 2024 10:56:52
I would choose Mcburnie over shankland every day of the week, Shankland isn't capable of playing in that league, Mcburnie is his teams top scorer.

9.) 19 Apr 2024 12:07:32
With 6 goals though. Come on man. Not exactly a solid argument.

10.) 19 Apr 2024 13:00:31
6 goals 3 assists in 20 games for Sheffield utd in the epl, many our cf's would do that for them orange tinted? or would Shankland do that? very doubtful in my opinion because he wouldn't play.

11.) 19 Apr 2024 13:03:12
In a bad team look what he was doing at Swansea in championship 20 goals and championship better league than ours.

12.) 19 Apr 2024 13:23:11
You need to actually watch mcburnie to understand he’s a good player if you’re watching bits here and there he looks rubbish. I’ve watched a few games with Sheffield Utd vs Fulham and Chelsea and he rag dolled there defenders the full game, think he scored in both too. He 100% offers something we don’t have which is a physical presence on a free he’s a no brainer.

13.) 19 Apr 2024 13:32:32
Wishy Mcburnie is a far better cf than he gets credit for on here.

14.) 19 Apr 2024 13:40:59
McBurnie would do very well in our league, look at Shankland he does ok in it and was crap elsewhere . Hearts have had no offers not even a rumour other than someone mentioned the potato arena fc . McBurnie would have no problems with defences in this league, he doesn't want to play for Scotland but who does?

15.) 19 Apr 2024 14:29:59
McBurnie Miovski Danilo ( till fully assessed) Cortes fit then see what the deal is and clear out the others, Dessers, Roofe, Lammers, Matilda beep beep , Wright, and send Silva back without saying thank you .

A deal for Sima looking unlikely? would we fret too much about that?

16.) 19 Apr 2024 14:49:52
We need at least 2 strikers it would make sense on a free and spend on the other.

17.) 19 Apr 2024 21:08:53
I would love us to keep Sima.

18.) 19 Apr 2024 21:37:00
Sorry but if it’s olly mcburnie then nothing at club has changed and it’s still club targets rather than manager or new recruitment team that’s signing these project rehab players

We need to move away from that and exploit other markets

Silva was a lazy signing oh he cost Wolves 35 million or whatever must have something about him nonsense he’s rotten I get that he’s still young but honestly we need someone who can do it now silva not the answer.

19.) 20 Apr 2024 12:55:51
At a time when we yet again need to replace pretty much an entire team, McBurnie would be an excellent acquisition. I have watched Sheffield United quite a few times this season and in a very poor team he stands out. Fights for every ball, outmuscles defenders and scores goals.
Bringing in people of this quality and better on Bosmans will allow us to concentrate our spending on quality young players with the potential to develop into world class players.
The prime objective must be to sign quality players with a winning mentality that will die for the jersey. That is something that can't be said about a number of the current squad.
Fundamentally, if we are to progress and be a team that can win the league comfortably, we need to spend serious money. Our transfers since we won 55 have been abysmal.

20.) 21 Apr 2024 06:16:59
I honestly don't understand how people can say oli mcburnie on a free would be a bad signing, he is completely different to what we have, a player of his mould is badly needed in games we need to mix it up, strength, power, height, he's a very dogged player I'd love him as an option in certain games, I don't believe he is prolific but he has good attributes that would enhance our squad, I think we miss that type of put yourself about striker in tight games.



15 Jan 2024 17:57:41
A friend in the USA (he's in Salt Lake City) tells me that one of our scouting partners over there has recommended a player to us, Mikael Uhre of Philadelphia, a striker I believe. I've never heard of him, so just wondering if this could have something in it?


1.) 15 Jan 2024 18:23:38
Former Brondby striker, played against us in the europa league games against them. 29 years old with a decent scoring record, quite a big target man type from what i can remember.

2.) 15 Jan 2024 21:29:56
14 goals across 26 appearances.

3.) 15 Jan 2024 23:16:29
Sounds interesting due to the brondby connection.
It’s a market the manager will k ow well aswell as dof.
Could be something to this one.



11 Jan 2024 19:48:42
This is from a senior administrator at the club, allegedly. Until Tuesday night we were negotiating with one agent, one lawyer, one accountant, one player. There is one set of papers ready to be completed if the player agrees, once the manager returns from Spain. No clue given as to whether it's a fee, a loan or a free, but no other business is being prepared right now. The manager also believes there are B team players who have previously been 'undervalued' and will now be utilised going forward. There are 'one or two' wage rises in the offing.


1.) 11 jan 2024 22:50:40
im always happy to read your words, so i'm happy to hear this

contracts can involve so many parties now, looking forward to more on this,

2.) 11 Jan 2024 22:53:47
Hallelujah about time we looked at youth first.



01 Oct 2023 20:47:36
Just heard a cracker - Stephen Robinson in the frame!


1.) 01 Oct 2023 21:23:30
Doing well at St Mirren. A chance to see how we get on against them/ him next weekend.

There was a guy at St Mirren once called Alex Ferguson, he went on to become Alex Ferguson.

2.) 01 Oct 2023 21:26:02
Might as well go for david healy at least he comes from an environment where loosing is not an option or acceptable.

3.) 01 Oct 2023 21:51:14
Well he’s beat Celtic more times than Michael Beale did.

4.) 01 Oct 2023 22:06:24
Ffs neither will be the next manager.

5.) 01 Oct 2023 22:19:32
That guy at St Mirren you mention was chucked out for fiddling expenses and we don't need high pitched Robinson who made a right arse of 2 clubs previous to St Mirren.

6.) 01 Oct 2023 22:27:35
Just a question guys who realistically do we want?

7.) 01 Oct 2023 22:41:24
Stephen Robinson? More chance Mrs Robinson!

8.) 02 Oct 2023 01:31:50
Currently on holiday in Spain and couple guys talking about Steve Clark as our next manager. Fingers well for Scotland but I think we need better. Had to be someone that knows our game.

27 May 2024 22:22:12
I'm not into stats but I heard one earlier that those of you who don't believe our club is refereed to a much different standard, might do well to appreciate. In the EPL this season, VAR disallowed 51 goals in 380 games, about one in eight. Rangers were disallowed four goals in seven games.


1.) 28 May 2024 07:35:30
I am into stats, as I'm a data analyst / scientist for my crimes.

The stats you've shared don't change my mind in terms of the refereeing/ sfa conspiracy.

2.) 28 May 2024 08:01:20
I think it's incompetence not bias.

3.) 28 May 2024 08:30:32
Those stats are irrelevant. Just data, not information.

Now tell us how many of those 51 were wrongly disallowed and how many of the 4 of ours to see if the ratio of incorrect calls is different. That's the actual information.

This conspiracy nonsense is total tinfoil hat, head in the sand refusal to accept we're just not good enough. It doesn't help.

Raskin needlessly fouled Hart, it was he right call on review, we weren't cheated. But sure, let's keep using referees to deflect from our own failings, because that always works out well.

4.) 28 May 2024 08:30:49
You can’t pick and choose the games we had 4 disallowed in 38 games you mean?

5.) 28 May 2024 09:54:35
Hit he bullseye there gdog was the same when rangers were dominating in the 90s Celtic cried conspiracy.

6.) 28 May 2024 09:59:51
Raskin fouled Hart. End of. Keepers are protected at the best of times but was needlessly fouled as he wasn't getting to the ball anyway. We lost what should have been a precious goal.
Now we will chat about possible and impossible transfers and miofski and shankland etc al till August! Sometimes I feel like screaming ( deep purple) ?.

7.) 28 May 2024 10:28:15
You just picked two stats and tried to prove a correlation between them when infact there is no correlation. You can't just pluck a stat that suits your narrative and use it to try and prove a conspiracy. If you want to prove that Rangers are refereed differently then you would have to use stats from every other refereing decision in the SPL not the EPL.

8.) 28 May 2024 10:40:39
In other countries the referee must release which team he follows on, (??), in Scotland, with most top referees catholic, and the promotion of that wee clown to head referee, i think this must be looked into, i am not a conspiracy theorist, but the refereeing of the OF games seems inconsistent, its clear to see. We need neutrality and transparency.

9.) 28 May 2024 13:29:33
Me2, celtic are winning now, and still cry conspiracy against them!

10.) 28 May 2024 13:48:29
What does a referee's religion have to do with their competence as a referee or what team they follow?



25 May 2024 19:03:56
The manager has already started his rebuild and I would hope he is looking for pace, strength, energy and, for the midfield, guile and technique. After 65 years of supporting Rangers, I have come to the conclusion that in this corrupted modern Scottish game we will have to beat the jungles 3-0 just to get a draw.


1.) 25 May 2024 19:43:51
Oh dear.

2.) 25 May 2024 20:00:44
This is the most corrupted the league has been, I’ve never seen this level in previous years. I don’t know what we can honestly do about it, the damage is done.

3.) 25 May 2024 20:01:03
Need to score 2 to get 1.

4.) 25 May 2024 20:38:59
That disallowed goal is laughable, Raskin hardly touched the anti-dandruff man. On another note after waving a PRO-IRA flag he should burn every one on his England caps.

5.) 25 May 2024 20:39:00
Incompetence doesn't mean corruption. This is starting to look like the other mobs forum.

6.) 25 May 2024 20:39:13
Looks like our fans are now the ones with the tin foil hats on.

7.) 25 May 2024 20:43:14
That so many of our fans don't think that was a foul is wild to me. Stonewall push and we'd be going mental if that wasn't overturned were it at the other end.

I'd rather concentrate on why Raskin did it. He had a good game overall, but that decision costs us a goal just as not fouling Bernardo in the centre circle contributed (with Wright and moreso Butland) to losing one. I'll cut him some slack on their goal as he was out on his feet by then having put so much into the game, but there was no need to even put hands on Hart at the corner to give VAR a decision to even make. Por decision IMO.

8.) 25 May 2024 20:57:24
What was corrupt about today?

9.) 25 May 2024 20:59:18
Folks when you’re struggling it might seem that the SFA are at it but I don’t see any corruption in Ref, s. If we had a fluent forward line we would have won today. If we had a forward of height and power with those corners we would have won today. I only saw from 65mins and we were the better team from then, so we should have won.

We need wingers that can beat players. Wright, McCausland, mantando even sima can’t. Sterling our RB did better. I am quietly confident that the end of cycle means that and not many will be left from after 55.

10.) 25 May 2024 21:21:17
Sound like vic-tim fc we can't score and beat an average Celtic blind man can see that.



11 May 2024 17:59:23
Now that the title has gone, the last two games should be an opportunity to introduce the likes of Rice, King, McKinnon, Insio, Yfeko, Lovelace, Stevens, even Lowry to assess them and see where they are for next season. For me at least three of them are ready to step up to the senior squad.


1.) 11 May 2024 18:04:30
Hubby some r not fit at alll, both physically and match sharpness, certain players should have been involved last six weeks ie McKinnon yefeko mb stevens.

2.) 11 May 2024 19:38:28
Hubby they ain't good enough if they can't get minutes infront of the nonsense. They ain't featured at all really since PC took over says it all.



16 Apr 2024 15:17:52
In 2016, I and a couple of others on here (tomthumb was one, I believe) said it would take ten years before we were in a position to challenge Celtic. The first five years were years of regeneration, not rebuilding, as our club was in such a war-torn state, our stadium was dilapidated, our work was just starting.
The other mob, on the other hand, had easy years learning how to win, how to accumulate both cash and trophies, how to lay down their superiority over Scottish football. They pushed their agenda by securing the best seats at the top tables of the national game.
In Europe they were regarded as a parochial outfit and still are, but they were there every year to dip their hand in that deep pot.
We continued our comeback and looked to be ahead of schedule with 55, a couple of cups and some great European performances, which we needed because we were hungry for that cash. By my reckoning we are still slightly ahead of schedule on this long road to the top, but things will still not always be rosy.
I too am getting frustrated with a few players who are perennial losers who have now had their time riding our gravy train. For me the next couple of seasons are the most crucial on our journey. Much still has to be done, so we have to keep holding our precious patient's hand until that full recovery is made.


1.) 16 Apr 2024 15:21:37
Not this "journey" single fish, again?! That cringey term ended the day we won 55, and is just embarrassing now.

2.) 16 apr 2024 15:26:12
absolutely correct hubby, and i believe a few have overstayed by some time, we need to move away from this defence to take the next step, and unfortunately we have missed a few players we should have got earlier, we are not beat yet this season, can these players find something inside for a final push and an opportunity to leave as heroes, time will tell.

3.) 16 Apr 2024 15:46:28
Agree rtr to me just a excuse for failure.

4.) 16 Apr 2024 16:17:56
raisetheroofe, I wrote a single word that you jumped all over to snipe at. Talk about a puerile response? All of life and its contents are journeys. Let's change it to 'our recent history', then. Satisfied?

5.) 16 Apr 2024 17:37:38
Dont understand what you mean by riding a gravy train and overstaying their welcome, could you expand on that. Beale, Murty and Pedro put us back at least 3 years. IMO I would point the finger at Stewart Robertson for poor recruitment.

6.) 16 Apr 2024 17:46:57
Rtr, the manager today spoke about the journey we are on. Single fish? Embarassing?

7.) 16 Apr 2024 18:00:09

8.) 16 Apr 2024 18:12:21
Good post Hubby. My main concern is that I feel that we are now going backwards and I believe that this started when we won title 55. The fault without doubt lies with the Chairman and Board at that time with our incompetent DoF and Chief Scout playing a major part.
When we should have strengthened, building on a winning team, we didn't. we then saw a procession of 2nd rate football players through the revolving doors not to forget the number of managers that failed after the departure of Gerrard and the associated costs.
If we don't win the league this season then we have missed a major opportunity since the crowd in the East End is nothing special. Unfortunately Clement was left with a mountain to climb when he arrived.
Win or lose the league the squad needs major surgery in the summer, whether we want to admit it or not, too many of the current squad are not fit for purpose.

9.) 16 Apr 2024 19:26:12
Seems like we embark on a new journey every season with the turnover of players. Clement must be given 3 years if he wants to stay that long. Or this merrygoround will continue.

10.) 16 Apr 2024 20:49:54
Spot on BigDado we need stability, come to think of so do I according to you??.

11.) 16 Apr 2024 21:42:28
? aye only on your bike until you get used to it ?.

12.) 16 Apr 2024 22:29:36
Lol its a 3 wheeler??.



14 Apr 2024 14:07:38
The league is all but lost. Time to ditch all the serial losers and the deadwood. A lot of work now needs to be done in shifting 'players' and bringing in new blood. It's actually tough to see where we should start. We need at least three defenders, a proper midfield general, one winger minimum and a proven goalscorer as well as some good backup.

I think they are correct, Stig. We play 4-3-2-1 with Cantwell and Lawrence in front of those three, fight to win the midfield and try to get Lawrence and Cantwell joining in with Dessers. We don't have wingers just now with the required ability, so play without them, and give the other mob a problem to solve. Plus, we're not actually very successful when crossing the ball anyway.

We flood the midfield by playing 4-3-2-1 with Diomande, Lundstram and Sterling behind Cantwell and Lawrence, who can both join in counter attacks beside Dessers.

John27, I was told weeks ago that Rice was extremely unhappy at his lack of opportunities and has already asked to leave for the sake of his career. I'm also told that Archie Stevens thinks coming to us was the worst thing he could have done. For me those boys are the cream of our youth.
