I know it’s possibly been touched on before, but I think we really need to consider how impressive our recruitment policy has been since Ross Wilson came in. If we just look at how we faired compared to Celtic over the summer in a number of similar positions. Goalkeeper - we immediately brought in McLaughlin at the start of the summer for free and he’s not put a foot wrong. They dither for ages and end up spending £5m on a keeper who’s now second choice to a guy who was their third choice last year. Left back - we needed cover and brought in an unheard of youngster who’s turned out to be a machine who again has looked solid every time he’s played and we got him for free. Since they lost Tierney they’ve brought in Bolingoli, Taylor and now Laxelt, who’s looked ok but they only have on loan. And remember where Bassey came from, he was playing for their old manager, you would of thought that would of given them a bit of a heads up on that one. CB - We weren’t even looking for a CB, then Katic gets injured and within 2 weeks we have brought in a (and think about this) CB who came from Brighton, is a Nigerian international, experience of the premier league and Bundesleague and cost nothing. They desperately needed a CB, again dithered, ended up bringing in a CB from, you guessed it, Brighton but they had to pay a £2m loan fee and £45k wages, and he’s crap! CF They spend £5m on a Swiss international, we pay around a third of that on a Swiss international, both who still have a bit to prove so far but still our risk is a lot less on that one. Overall since Wilson has come in I can’t think of a bad move we’ve made in terms of recruiting players.

Fully agree with everything you have said there gets but also got to mention his good work in getting rid of some of the dead wood which I think we will see again in jan and summer freeing up wages for more signings. If we manage to qualify for champs league the gap in finances will be covered and make us as financially stable as we have ever been possibly more so than before. We need to seriously give credit to the board for all this they came in when we were an absolute ruin and destined for financial ruin again and in the matter of only a few years have got us to a place some of us could only dream of. Once again it’s all happiness for the gers, there will be bumps along the way as there has been so far but we are once again becoming the force we all wanted to be.

16 Nov 2020 11:57:36
I agree too, but I’m not going to take time out to “ consider “ how good they’ve been “ they’re great atm, that’s that.

16 Nov 2020 13:13:01
That wasn’t meant to be cheeky mate: just a long post about what has been talked about many times, it’s been very good business so far but the fruits will be when Rangers win the league and then certain players bring in plenty of cash, for further investment.

16 Nov 2020 13:44:01
Ok fair enough. I was also just having a bit of a laugh at how crap celtics recruitment has been in comparison, which is always fun to do.

16 Nov 2020 12:27:01
All very postive this season. Very happy how things are going. But let's not jump the gun let's see how we get on after the new year. As we have been in this position already. Prayin the team get it right this season cause if they don't gerrard should find himself out a job.

16 Nov 2020 13:01:40
Early days but I’m generally in agreement. With exception of deal negotiated for Ross McCrorie, Wilson has done a good job.

16 Nov 2020 15:07:27
The deal for Ross McCrorie isn't a bad deal in my opinion, he was never good enough to get in our team and he has moved on somewhere else where he looks excellent. He's on loan so can't play against us, but can play against all of our rivals. That plus, I am convinced that there is a deal in place for Ferguson which will be linked to the McCrorie deal. I have a sneaky suspicion that Ferguson will sign in January but be loaned back to Dolly FC which again means he can't play against us, but will shine against all the other teams.

Wilson has done a great job with our signings this season, but the proper appraisal can be made when the team starts lifting silverware.

16 Nov 2020 16:04:26
Great Post gers1978 and spot on, over the past few years they have built dare I say it the best rangers team since the mccoist hateley era.

16 Nov 2020 16:25:59
Tend to agree with all that's been said above. Things look great just now but let's wait to see the season out and that will be the ultimate test. Either way though there has been definite progression yet again. I don't know if it was the board or Ross Wilson who brought James Bisgrove in as commercial director but what a job that guy is doing. The amount of extra partnerships that have been announced since he has come on board can only mean financial gains which gives us more buying power. The Castore deal, Tomket Tires, DCP partners and the Swiss Energy drink partner I think are called 81. These companies all paying us money to have link ups with us. Onwards and upwards.

Mossblown. no quite mate. Advocaat era? Weve had few great teams simce 90s. what does that make that lot over the city then? As they have a clean sweep since gerrard came in?

16 Nov 2020 18:15:28
Big coops will be advocating for s statue of him next 🤣🤣.

16 Nov 2020 18:31:35
It’s been positive so far but as a team we haven’t won anything yet long way to go better off waiting to the end of the season and talk about it then.

16 Nov 2020 18:47:09
Agree MOCbear. Bisgrove brought in by MD and Board.

16 Nov 2020 19:45:24
Why not Herewego55 🤔Was killing myself laughing there mate, good one pal 😂😂😂.

16 Nov 2020 19:52:21
My understanding is bisgrove was recommended to the board by Alistair Johnston.

16 Nov 2020 20:28:40
Alistair Johnston did have an input on bisgrove john, I was fortunate enough to have a drink some years back with Alistair as I was invited to him being honoured by his university, great guy and massive Rangers fan,

16 Nov 2020 20:43:08
I get what you're saying paul86 but this years team is much better that previous years team. We've only conceded 3 league goals one of which was clearly off side and another came off edmundsons coupon 🙄. Even Advocatt's team would have been happy with that. Admittedly its early days and I'm not one for getting carried away but all evidence is that the current rangers side is a really good one.

17 Nov 2020 00:20:05
Well taken coops mate, I couldn't resist 👍.

17 Nov 2020 09:09:50
Good banter is what it's all about Herewego55 😂👍We're all bears after all pal, who want the absolute best for the famous!

18 Nov 2020 18:51:48
Ok, sorry Tom if you didn’t like the way I phrased that, let’s just say let’s congratulate our recruitment team and board then. On the other hand, maybe as a support it is important that we take a second to think about / look at our recruitment policy and the way the board are running our club. After all the last time we stopped paying attention to those things and didn’t take any time to ‘consider’ how the club were operating we ended up as a support sleep walking into administration. Up to you though.
