A lot off talk re players in the window, that's partly what this site is all about.
I as much off others pick up wee snippets and choose to share some, not all.
Why, because some are so ridiculous others I have been told in confidence.
Everyone is entitled to a view re any player, however I personally don't agree we should, sign shankland, Ferguson, misbet et all and loan them straight back. We real late not that cash rich. Remember these players and many others have allegedly been extensively scouted by our recruitment team.
Since Wilson arrived we seem to be doing better business and getting frees such as McLaughlin, Defoe, Davis, balogun, Bassey .
Signings under the radar such as hagi, itten, roofe
Finally we r picking up some excellent academy players like, McKee, Graham, Weston coupled with improving some our own academy players.
So I consider our manager and Wilson r doing an excellent job improving playing staff
Next season we will be going for champions league group place, we need better players in first 11, so IMO we at this stage need to find them out with Scotland.

Good post John.

07 Jan 2021 15:44:58
100% agree.
It's all about quality over quantity now.
We can't waste money on maybes like the players from Scotland you have highlighted.
Are people forgetting we could be in the CL next season? Or continuing our development as a side others will fear in the Europa League?
It isn't being a football snob turning our nose up at players in Scotland.
It's a market that has served us well in the past. It's about getting value for the limited money we have available and players who can enhance the first team. It's why quality frees are seen as more viable.

Excellent post John 👏🏻👏🏻.

07 Jan 2021 15:53:24
Have to agree, any player coming in has to be starting 11. Excluding youth of course. 👍.

07 Jan 2021 15:58:43
Excellent post John.

07 Jan 2021 16:19:50
Have to Disagree, going back over even a few years you can see that some players in Scotland just need a chance to prove them selves at a higher level look at Roberstson McGinn playing with better players they look fantastic these are the type we are scoffing QPR, Dundee Utd and Hibs respectively! and there are more to be had in Scotland IMO. U think McGinn looked far superior to Lewis Ferguson at the same age?

07 Jan 2021 17:07:45
John McGinn is a fantastic player! The amount of ex pros saying young Ferguson is a great talent tells me he’s worth a punt and let’s hope he joins his boyhood hero’s in the summer🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧He’s worth a punt and fits into our club model.

07 Jan 2021 17:28:41
R1 McGinn was a mile ahead of ferguson. We should be grateful he went to villa.

07 Jan 2021 17:41:42
Yately Aberdeen want 4 million. Not what I would call a punt.

07 Jan 2021 18:15:00
Good post John but with brexit and these new rules it won't be easy getting foreign players with work permits, visas etc. It will be interesting to see how things pan out in the future and I can see a great opportunity for our young British talent to make the most of this and I would love to see more British talent getting a chance. I think this is their time to step up and shine.

07 Jan 2021 18:18:54
Excellent post John, the main point for me was the reference to the job Ross Wilson and Steven Gerrard are doing, they won't let us down.

07 Jan 2021 18:23:59
Have TBH, that's a very well written post John25 👍 I still think we shouldn't snub possibly signing talent in scotland though mate and that's my honest opinion! I also do trust wholeheartedly steven gerrard and our management team and of course our technical director ross wilson, who are all doing a fantastic job at glasgow rangers 👌.

07 Jan 2021 18:33:45
Will be interesting to see Ferguson in action against us at the weekend. Very likely he will be at Ibrox next season.

07 Jan 2021 18:35:26
SGL I’m not saying snub Scottish players. What I’m saying is bring them in early, ie Graham 30 k.
Notpuntsat 2: e 4 million then lend them out. For. That money they are straight in 11 or on bench.

3 cheers we don’t know rules yet resigning players from abr, it’s set by home office.
Believe me it will be well influenced by epl.

07 Jan 2021 18:37:21
Bang on the money as always John lad.

07 Jan 2021 18:40:27
Great post don’t agree with it all because if we always went out with Scotland we wouldn’t have signed kamara.
We need a mix of both we need to be signing the best young talent in Scotland.

07 Jan 2021 18:58:17
No kJ missing the point. Kamara had a great schooling at arsenal and we got him for a bargain, near end of contract. Had he been valued at two million he would not be a rangers player imo.

07 Jan 2021 19:16:39
Young Ferguson is 20 and McGinn is 26 with brilliant experience at a few different clubs! He will go on to be a great player if not with us it will be down south.

07 Jan 2021 19:32:01
Good posts John agree mate 100%.

07 Jan 2021 20:30:18
For me one of the biggest factors in turning a really good player like Ferguson or MCGinn and the like is the players that surround them.

It takes a very special talent to transform a team but a really strong team can transform a good player with potential.

I think Ferguson could go on and become a real star for us but I’m not sure I would pay £2m+ for him when there will be other under the radar deals out with Scotland to be had.

07 Jan 2021 20:40:04
John am not missing the point and I just don’t agree with everything you said mate that’s all.

Not signing players in Scotland and we will miss out on good players it’s that simple and I think we should be buying the best young players in the contract.

Every club needs a good mix.

07 Jan 2021 21:09:55
I don't see all the hype regarding Ferguson, he's decent, that's all.

07 Jan 2021 22:24:31
Good point R1 - anytime I see Hibs at that time I was though McGeough was the better player of the two. Amazing to think how his career has gone since then and how McGinns has gone.

08 Jan 2021 02:17:45
Yea John great post . Wasn’t going to read because it seemed a tad long but I’ve never seen a post that got so many positive comments so I had to . I agree about Ferguson and shank ( unless we were getting at about 1 mill each ) . For every mcginn there is a Stewart .
Oddly enough tho bid sadiq is playing out his skin and gas just signed a five year deal for about 4 mill I think and scored a hat trick at the weekend. I think tho like windass Stevie thought he didn’t work enough . He certainly was one in a million tho a bit like ted macmine and his unpredictability made us laugh in the stands 👍.

08 Jan 2021 03:21:31
John25, how was he a Mile ahead? Correct me if I’m Wrong but at 21 was McGinn not playing Championship level in Scotland with hibs when he got back to the SPL his stats aren’t what Ferguson’s are at the moment in a more competitive league? So how can you say he was a Mile ahead? Ferguson’s running the show for Aberdeen scoring and assisting regularly and playing really well.

Point is these guy get to be shown on a big stage and thrive few of the players people mention here might be the next McGinn or Robbo people don’t remember these boys were lower level than a Ferguson or a Portueos or who ever and now they are top top players Robbo is world class.

08 Jan 2021 09:25:19
R1 I’m entitled to my opinion.
How much would u and some others on here rate Ferguson if he was Paul mcstays son and Willie mcstays nephew.

08 Jan 2021 10:23:15
Why are you bring that up John. I personally couldn’t care less who his Dad is I do like the fact the las is a bluenose and he would love to play go us. A Hamilton lad who loves the Gers and I wouldn’t be surprised if Tim’s nip in!

08 Jan 2021 10:29:00
100% your entitled to your opinion but you said he was miles ahead which he clearly wasn’t. My points more about buying SPL players there’s value to be had here and (not u) but people turning their noses up at young Scottish talent because hibs got beat off another SPL side or because Ferguson plays for Aberdeen is madness. These players mentioned are standouts in a rubbish team. Who knows what they could be.

08 Jan 2021 11:12:37
Ri your opinion mine is he was miles ahead.

08 Jan 2021 11:39:20
Yately why can’t I ask a legitimate question,

08 Jan 2021 12:51:40
I'm one of the ones who doesn't think any of the Hibs lads are good enough R1.
If we sold Barasic, Goldson, Kamara and Morelos, would you be happy if we replaced them with Doig, Porteous, Newell and Nisbett?
Remember we are going to be a potential CL side or competing for EL group winners.

08 Jan 2021 18:55:29
I’d be happy for nisbit Portueos Ferguson to be given an opportunity at rangers yes they are all young talented boys that are cutting it in our league. Newell no to old he had a really good game against us but he’s likely not going to get much better at his age. To replace all our key players with these lads is not at all what I said anywhere on this forum so don’t try and put words in my mouth. My point is people turning their noses up at talent in our country and them being looked upon as never being good enough when it’s been PROVEN players at these clubs have made it beyond rangers standards in the not too distant past.
