Something a bit different guys.

The chat about Flo got me thinking yesterday, what stories do we have of the ones who got away?

Mentioned before I remember a rumour the original Ronaldo was offered 100k a week by us and could choose what games to play except old firm and champions League.

Also had heard before, we were in for Shevchenko when he left Kiev but David Murray didn't want to pay the fee because he was unproven in Champions League at that stage.

Anyone else got any old school rumours?

Mario Jardel. He could’ve been sensational for us. Wasn’t to be 🍊.

01 Mar 2021 12:42:11
Did one of our scouts not say he couldn't control a bag of tatties? 🤣.

Would have loved to see Ronaldo, but was never going to happen.
One player we were supposedly interested in was Javier Zanetti the Argentinian right back. What a player!

01 Mar 2021 12:56:35
Laurent Robert
Didier Drogba

A few that I can remember from back in the day.

Dennis Bregkamp prior to signing for Arsenal source was Mark Hately
This was at the Grovner Hotel for a player of the year do and after we beaten Hearts to win the League.
What a great night.

01 Mar 2021 13:38:55
Zanetti was voted the greatest foreign player in Serie A history, what a full back.

01 Mar 2021 13:39:42
dounebear, I was told that by Donald Finlay as well about Bergkamp.

01 Mar 2021 14:01:06
I can remember we were in for Ronaldo but we were not going to pay him 100k a week no one was getting paid that anywhere near that amount back then utter bs.

01 Mar 2021 14:11:52
I worked p/ t in the grosvenor DB back when rangers used it, I can tell you some stories believe me, including a great one with my pal Flecky

And I was serving wee mojo and coisty Asti Spumante the night before he signed, I was raised with flecky and lived in same landing as mo back then, great times.

Spot on KJA9👍We almost signed the brazilian striker ronaldo on loan when he was at PSV EINDHOVEN, i believe under sir bobby robson at the time 🤔.

01 Mar 2021 14:37:43
We offered to pay him a fortune KJ and he could pick and choose the games he wanted to play in. Don't know how much truth was in this, but I'm sure I read something about it in one of the rags.

Alex McLeish wanted robin van persie from feyenoord as a left winger, for a fee of around £4/ 5m. He went to arsenal 12 months later for £20 odd million?
Robbie Fowler was almost a rangers player just before he went to Leeds for £13m, we ended up with flo instead a few weeks later.

01 Mar 2021 15:11:04
Was definitely when he left Barcelona coop mate. Us, Lazio and inter were the three in for him.

01 Mar 2021 15:44:41
Van nistelroy from PSV before he done his knee, what a signing he would have been.

01 Mar 2021 15:45:35
There was talk of a world record at the time bid of 19 million from us for brazillian Ronaldo! Never believed it till I saw an interview on gazzetta on channel 4 with the wee shaved head guy cannot remember his name! But aye they discussed it and it was real!

01 Mar 2021 15:51:03

01 Mar 2021 15:57:47
I beg to differ snell, as i honestly believe it was PSV EINDHOVEN mate 🤔.

01 Mar 2021 16:32:09
SGL it was when he was leaving Barcelona 100% the only playing in champs league was reported but in my opinion bs you ain’t gona sign a player for 20million just to play in Europe.

And no way was he getting offered 100k a week no out having it.

01 Mar 2021 16:33:45
A lot of all this player and that player was paper talk and a lot of people on here say the papers make up BS all the time but tend to believe what they have written when it’s suits them 🤭 funny that.

01 Mar 2021 16:40:39
I'm sure I read somewhere a while bsck we were interested in loaning messi as he was about to break through at barca.

01 Mar 2021 17:08:11
Might have been linked both times then Coop mate, had a wee Google on my lunch break and his agent quoted it was when he left Barcelona and that was the three teams it was between. Inter had scouted him since his days in South America and won the day.

Let's just say we are both right 😎.

01 Mar 2021 17:21:18
I seen someone write about jardel how we never signed him, am pretty sure it was something to do with work permit. That deal was almost completed shame he was done player at Porto.

02 Mar 2021 08:50:39
Wasn’t Jardel introduced at Ibrox only for deal to collapse due to work permit.
