I posted a few months ago about a rumour I heard regarding Gestede. I heard again today from a different person that he is on Gerrards radar as a replacement for Morelos. Could be BS, don't know the lad who told me too well but worth passing on the rumour.


1.) 05 Jul 2019 18:57:50
We have an older but much more reliable striker in Defoe. If we need to bring in another striker, I am led to believe that we will once again be looking for someone 25 years old or less. So Gestede is unlikely.

We are also going to face losing Kamara as lower EPL teams are looking to acquire him.

2.) 05 Jul 2019 20:04:46
well hope those teams are prepared to pay top dollar

fact we signed him 50k means bugger all now

if they want 16/ 18m for ntcham wots kamara worth.

3.) 05 Jul 2019 20:54:04
Weird criteria for a team trying to win the league, a replacement for Morelos must be 25 or under lol. I presumed if the player was available at the right price and would do a turn it wouldn't matter of he was 21 pr 31?

4.) 05 Jul 2019 21:21:35
That’s a joke surely.

5.) 05 Jul 2019 22:19:06
I have heard that morelos is to go then we might look at sturage to replace plus a young striker with potential.

{Ed033's Note - Is this someone called Stu Rage or Daniel Sturridge? :)

6.) 06 Jul 2019 15:48:28
If Morelos does go McBurnie would be the perfect replacement would love tae sign Sturridge as well.

7.) 06 Jul 2019 16:46:29
Mcburnie! Lmao best one yet.



07 Mar 2019 16:20:00
Heard a rumour today and just sharing. Don't know the lad but we got talking and he's a Rangers man and he's said that Rudy Gestede from Boro being considered as a potential replacement. Apparently the rumour has been doing the rounds in his local boozer in Airdrie.

Don't know if there is any substance, like I say I never knew this guy before today so don't shoot the messenger.


1.) 07 Mar 2019 22:11:09
Local boozer in Airdrie laughable the new mecca of transfer rumours.

2.) 08 Mar 2019 06:28:50
Instead of a minority on here who keep TRYING to ridicule any other bear, who's only sharing what he's heard, try and contribute instead of continually trying to put other supporters down all the time! Its a rumours page after all. This facility is for rumours amongst us all, to debate, instead of a continual few rubbishing anything, their fellow supporters post in! Git the fish and chips off your shoulders and act like fellow bears, ie. discuss opinions, don't repeatedly sconce others!

3.) 08 Mar 2019 06:57:49
Stevie G drinks in the staging post!

4.) 08 Mar 2019 09:01:44
think Gestede would be a decent singing, different to what we have. Hada good spell at Blackburn a coupel years ago and didn't quite cut it at EPL but reckon the physical game in scotland would suit him.

5.) 08 Mar 2019 09:22:42
SC11 I think you’ll find that 9 times out of 10 it’s not what you’ve supposedly heard that’s the problem. You come across as arrogant and speak to everyone like you’re our school teacher. You continually contradict yourself and end up looking like an absolute clown, and don’t get me started on your ridiculous polls. It seems to me you are now just feeling sorry for yourself.

6.) 08 Mar 2019 09:32:56
I was backing up j1985.He was only passing on what he heard

7.) 08 Mar 2019 12:54:22
This chap Gestede has only scored 4 goals this season. No big deal, not good enough for the Gers.

8.) 08 Mar 2019 14:16:21
Sharpshooter NAIL ON THE HEAD!

9.) 08 Mar 2019 16:19:47
Again sharpshooter spot on. Coop the amount of drivel you spout on here is it any wonder there is a queue to have a go at you. 👍.

10.) 09 Mar 2019 01:35:10
I've said where the rumour has come from. I don't have some elaborate link to the club. It was a Rangers man telling a fellow bluenose what he'd heard. The purpose of this page is to share rumours so regardless of where I get a rumour from I'll continue to share, inspite of the one sentence wonders with nothing constructive to say.



12 Jun 2017 10:43:43
BBC sport - Pedro hopes to concluded Dorrans deal in the next 48 hours.

IMO Dorrans signing would be the pick of the bunch. Excellent pedigree with playing the majority of his days at the highest level and at 30 still has a good few years to offer.


1.) 12 Jun 2017 12:31:36
I read somewhere that Dorrans had a 96% pass success ratio in the championship this year. Outstanding player.

2.) 12 Jun 2017 13:50:43
I'd prefer McArthur - he was in the papers a few months ago saying he would love to play for us. He would be my first choice but don't get me wrong Dorrans will be brilliant for us.

3.) 12 Jun 2017 17:22:22
Dorrans isn't outstanding lol

4.) 12 Jun 2017 18:39:10
not that i like to praise that lots players but commons was a solid championship attacking mid. came up here, banged them in and won player of the year. i rate dorrans higher than him!

5.) 12 Jun 2017 19:02:02
Dorrans IS outstanding compared to haliday

6.) 12 Jun 2017 22:18:12
I'm outstanding compared to Halliday
We'll struggle to offload him! All about the money



22 May 2017 23:24:12
Naismith a done deal - source, Charlie Miller at recent speakers night.


1.) 22 May 2017 23:38:30
So Charlie miller knows everything happening inside kbrox seriously. Only when the club announces deals should we believe them to be true. Otherwise we would have 10'0000 players on our books.

2.) 23 May 2017 00:51:13
Sorry James. I'll refrain from posting rumours on this rumours page shall i. And for the record, I never stated Miller knew all the goings on within Ibrox but a former player with ties to the club personally telling me a deals done is worth sharing with fellow fans.

3.) 23 May 2017 01:12:52

Naismith deal is already done, Charlie miller is spot on

I posted weeks ago it was a done deal, as I heard through a member of his family who was working in my neighbours house

4.) 23 May 2017 12:37:20
Most people are only happy on here if you post a story that's already happened. Apparently have no understanding of what rumour means

5.) 24 May 2017 03:38:42
Sorry but I don't believe naismith is back any man with any credit to himself would be ashamed to enter ibrox again after what he said .



17 Feb 2017 11:18:43
Kevin Muscat as manager and Craig Moore as director of football being rumoured in the press.


1.) 17 Feb 2017 11:42:42

2.) 17 Feb 2017 13:00:39
Outrageous nonsense

3.) 17 Feb 2017 20:22:11
the same craig moore who prioritised a socceroos WC qualifier against Tonga or was it the Solomon Islands - and effectively refused to play for us in a crucial CL qualifier.

I wldnt let him anywhere near Ibrox ever again

We need an experienced manager / coach who is mentally strong and able to cope with the relentless pressure and high standards that come with managing a club of our size

If Morelos goes for in excess of £10m then we should be looking at Jay Rodriguez of WBA. Apparently he's available for £5m (release clause - I assume was added if WBA failed to get promotion to the PL)

Hope this is the calibre of player Stevie G is looking at, 29 year old, premier league experience and although he's had his injury issues he's scored goals wherever he's been.


1.) 05 Jun 2019 13:29:47
He is a good player but 5m for a 29 year old is too big for us to pay when we probably won't get much out the other end. Could only see us spending that amount on a younger player with room to grow that we can sell on for a profit.



03 Jan 2019 14:02:36
No disciplinary action against Morelos as per reports online. Thank God the SFA have seen sense and all the tims and press can wind their necks back in.

Thought John Beaton had an excellent game. Wasn't card happy, let the game flow and used common sense throughout.


1.) 03 Jan 2019 14:21:47
Must admit i think he is lucky to escape a ban. He really needs to screw the nut. Yes, go in hard as he normally would, but cut out the silly kick outs and petulant flicks. They will be watching him closer than ever now. We need him on the park, not sitting in the stand.

2.) 03 Jan 2019 14:26:02
Good news indeed, but he continues doing daft things that could get him in trouble. I agree that John Beaton had an excellent game, football is a physical game and a card happy ref can ruin it.

3.) 03 Jan 2019 14:47:08
Very surprised but relieved. Queue the meltdown from the east.

4.) 03 Jan 2019 15:13:24
i honestly don't think there was ever a chance he was going to get suspended. The "incidents" were trivial and didn't warrant a red card. stupid to do them but nothing in them

and due to the fact the sfa create a line when rescinded his red against sheep on day one meant they couldn't ban him as these were by far and away a lesser "offence" than the kick at ocooner.

5.) 03 Jan 2019 15:25:06
Just read that “big nose Sutton “ is calling the SFA shambolic for not finding Morelos guilty, no one was hurt last week, it’s not as if they were serious challenges, big nose reminds me of a baby who doesn’t get his food on time, always yapping. Ok Morelos is no saint, but was Sutton? or is Brown? People have short memories, especially that clown with the big snout.

6.) 03 Jan 2019 15:49:59
Watched the game again last night
The ref gave a foul for kicking Browns nuts and was in a completely unobstructed view for the other two incidents.
To go against the ref's decision of a foul would have been a big decision and to say the ref saw what happened, chose to take no action would be a huge decision -tantamount to saying ref was totally cheating
but Fredo does need to screw the bobbin.

7.) 03 Jan 2019 15:48:45
Think SG needs a word with El Buffalo. Every area of Press/ Media going to be on his back for every reaction he makes. Time he realised this and screwed the nut. My initial reaction on thought of Defoe and Davis coming was one of salivation. But also Defoe might help Buffalo to calm down.



04 Nov 2018 20:45:06
Anyone else like the look of big Kamberi of Hibs? Thought he was outstanding in the final game of last season against us and showed glimpses against Hearts last midweek as well as scoring a cracker against them at Parkhead last month.

I'd be looking at him in January as an option btw. Big, strong, mobile and knows the league and more importantly has a track record of scoring in it. I believe he's on loan and I'm sure we'd be able to outbid Hibs to get this guy on a permanent deal.


1.) 04 Nov 2018 23:02:47
Hibs bought him in the summer for like £100k.

2.) 05 Nov 2018 00:18:07
I thought Hibs signed him permanently in the summer for a knock down fee?

3.) 05 Nov 2018 02:21:30
What’s the point in trying to do business with Hibs, has he not just signed for them in the summer? Be paying way over the odds.

I’d like to see a player that can create and score goals coming in, a proper number 10.

4.) 05 Nov 2018 14:56:13
Brought this up a few weeks ago, think he would have been a very good signing in the summer since he can lead line and play as 10.
Wonder what sort of fee would be required to get him now.

5.) 05 Nov 2018 21:19:23
Had no idea Hibs signed the boy permanently, thought he was back on loan. Scrap that suggestion then, wouldn't give them lot a penny.



29 Oct 2017 11:03:09
Great performance, especially second half. Thought Morelos work rate was excellent the whole game. The midfield were first to every ball, Tav was excellent going forward and McCrorie was a standout. As for Miller, 2 goals and led by example. Credit to Murray and the players. Finally something positive to talk about.


1.) 29 Oct 2017 23:24:47
thank goodness someone else has at last something positive to say about tavernier,



07 Jun 2017 16:20:36
No messing about by Pedro and the board. Alves, Jack, Dalcio and Cardoso all signed, Pena joining pending a work permit, Herrera and Dorrans might drag on a bit, particularly the Dorrans one but early indications are good. Strengthened in key areas (central defence and midfield) and a good mix of ages with Alves having bags of experience, Jack and Cardoso have their best years ahead of them and Dorrans having played at the highest level for the majority of his career.

I can still see a couple on top of the afore mentioned coming in, think going for the likes of Walker and Cummings at this stage would be idea as the pressure would be off these lads with more focus on the more lucrative signings, would let them settle n hopefully develop into key players for years to come.

Rossiter and Kranjcar will be like 2 new signings too and with that our midfield looks (on paper) as strong and competitive as it has done for a number of years. What a great feeling seeing the way we're going about our business in the transfer market. Well done Dave King, the board and Pedro.

Assuming that it not Rangers supporters who disagree with you!

Hope so Rossco, not seen much of McCrorie though so can't comment. Shame we let the boy Kelly go as he seems a cracker. I've always been impressed with that big Marciano lad too who was at Hibs (not sure if he's still there) . Maybe have another full season out of McGregor after this one so a keeper is a priority.

@Rossco so who replaces McGregor when he retires? There isn't many keepers of McGregors quality about, certainly not within our budget.

Never mind Cosgrove. Long term successor to McGregor is Joe Lewis if we can get him. Fantastic keeper.

Love how fifepl wants you to stay off youtube after quoting a stat that he got from the internet 😂 if the player has been identified as a target then our scouting team must see something in him.

I'm thinking we might be priced out of a move for a striker scoring 16 goals + in any of the European top league eh? Honestly, you can't have an opinion on here sometimes.

Barasic is terrible. His delivery is poor and he rarely wins a 1 on 1. Halliday has performed significantly better at left back for us than Barasic ever has.

Ojo getting stick is a bit harsh. He came on for the second half and at least had a go. There was a few worse performers today, Defoe for one. But it seems Defoe is exempt from all form of criticism.

If we got beat playing our usual 433 with two natural wide player then it would probably be easier to take. The fact that we changed our style so drastically and in doung so showing them far too much respect is what makes today hard to take.

We should have played the way we have been and let them worry about us. Instead we packed the midfield and left Defoe totally isolated. We had two natural wide players on the bench today and that left back was there for the taking if someone had just run at him from the first whistle. I was so confident we would beat them up until I saw the lineup. Poor selection and unfortunately the buck lies with the gaffer. Got it totally wrong.

Messi is IMO the greatest of all time but if you are talking about individual performances against us I would agree Del Piero is up there mate.

I remember being blown away by the Valencia side that we drew a few years later. Mendieta, Kily Gonzalez and Angulo were outstanding. Stefan Effenberg was another with Bayern who was class. We've seen some crackers over the years.
