Philippe Sylvain Senderos is currently undergoing a medical with Rangers Football Club.

Believable2 Unbelievable2

25 Aug 2016 22:27:30
He has been training for two we weeks and now needs a medical . You would Have thought he would have proved himself by now.

Agree1 Disagree2

25 Aug 2016 22:41:20
All players do a medical no mater what.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 22:50:06
Before a player signs they go through a medical, regardless of how long he has been on trial it is a legal requirement for liability insurance.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 23:06:11
He could of been training with us for two months he would still need a medical before signing that's just what needs to be done he may look fit but a Medical will check there are no underlining issues with his body that's all. look at lescott for example.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 23:06:32
Robbieg69,the medicals are very thourough now mate, with scans and checks of bone structure etc, its not just a case because he's been training with us for 2 weeks that he doesn't need a medical because he looks fit, just doesn't work like that scans show up underlying problems.

R4NG3R5 I wish people would stop being so negative.
Give me a list of viable alternatives?

We don't have money to spend, we are running at a loss, we need to accept that fact on stop dreaming of Murray's Moonbeams!

Live within our means!

Agree21 Disagree6

25 Aug 2016 09:13:05
We all know that the central defenders are struggling big time to cope with the SPL. Whether Senders is a success or not only time will tell but for me he just cannot be any worse than Kiernan!

Agree16 Disagree1

25 Aug 2016 09:57:01
There is a player in kiernan and Wilson, I thought both at times have been great, but they are too lightweight and inconsistent so hopefully senderos is the answer.

Agree10 Disagree1

25 Aug 2016 10:01:45
Why are people so against Senderos? he played in the Swiss Super League for a few months before training with us, at a team that finished 4th in their league. now some may disagree but the Swiss league is better than the Scottish League (Compare both countries clubs in Europe the Swiss are better) so if Senderos can cut it at that level surely he is good enough for us?

Agree16 Disagree2

25 Aug 2016 10:34:57
People are against Senderos because they are still so deluded into thinking we can go out and spend £3m on a cb no problem.

We have went from Mohsni and Cribari to an ex Arsenal and Milan cb yet some people have the audacity to come on here and slate the guy.

Hes made the effort to come here on trial (which a lot of players with an ego wouldn't do) and prove he is worth a deal. So wind your neck in and stop embaressing yourself.

This is the market we operate in for the forseeable future and I for one am happy about this. For too long we have over spent on average players. Now we target the very best free agents or wage structure will allow and if that means we get used as a stepping stone by bigger names then so be it. Anything to bring the best possibly available to our club.

Agree18 Disagree3

25 Aug 2016 11:00:00
I don't think either Wilson or Kiernan deserve the critisism they receive tbh. They system we play leaves them both badly exposed. I hope we stick with them as a partnership, RK was solid against Celtic and DW distribution from the back is class. Both at a great age for CBs with plenty of improvement left in them.

Agree10 Disagree7

25 Aug 2016 10:47:40
i don't know enough about the guy just that he is injury prone I hope he does well and stays fit i'd still rather have got bougy back the guy would play for us for next to nothing!
plus he is proven at spl level and plays with heart and is a good passer of the ball.

Agree10 Disagree1

25 Aug 2016 11:21:22
Well said blue_stu89. I'd happily take senderos. Guys had years of playing at the top level. More than Wilson and keirnan put together! I can understand where people have got doubts about fitness etc but commenting on the guys ability. He has been up against some of the best strikers in world. I'm Sure griffiths, Rooney, and whoever else are certainly no in the same league as who he's been up against in the past.

Agree8 Disagree1

25 Aug 2016 11:23:45
If someone said at the start of the transfer window we would have Senderos, Barton and Kranjcar in I would have told them to lay off the sauce. The management and board have done exceptionally well in getting players of their experience and quality in to help and guide te you get guys. Kiernan and Wilson will learn a lot from playing with Senderos, and they both need it especially Keirnan.
Wilson and Senderos could be a great partnership imo.

Agree11 Disagree1

25 Aug 2016 11:38:28
Senderos has a fantastic CV and still has the legs at 31 to be a very good player for us.
I am of the opinion (like Warbs) that Wilson and Kieran are good players maybe just not playing together, so either with Senderos might just be the perfect fix.
Like another poster said Senderos has shown an appetite to prove himself despite his great CV and his mentality will fit in with rest of squad.
Garner and Senderos will both be very good additions, onwards and upwards. Top of the League 🏆🔴⚪️🔵.

How much for Sergio Ramos anyway?

25 Aug 2016 12:20:27
We still have clint hill too but hasn't had a run of games. Thought him and gilks bring a bit of composure at the back.

Danny wilsons distribution has been shocking. he constantly hits the diagonal ball and very rarely picks out a blue jersey.

25 Aug 2016 14:13:46
Really poor signing.

Agree1 Disagree8

25 Aug 2016 14:24:02
Love how fans that don't want senderos are negative.

Yet the same people slate Wilson and Kiernan- is that not being negative?

Admittedly Kiernan has been shaky recently but no wonder when so many fans slate him and declare than 'anyone' could do a better job. Now that is negative.

Some fans have the sense to realise our tactics leave our central defenders exposed, often very high up the pitch. It takes a very assured defender not to look shaky when you defend like that.

For me we as a team need to work harder on training ground rather than blaming individuals. Win as a team, lose as a team. Attack as a team and defend as a team. Much more work needed on defensive side of our game. Particularly on defending pong ball and crosses.

Signing someone like senderos is a desperate move and reminds me of how coisty tried to deal with problems.

Agree2 Disagree6

25 Aug 2016 14:48:37
It's just really hard to please most of the fans nowadays. No doubt if we got Sergio ramos they'd still find a way to slate him. Senderos may be injury prone but is a solid cb that's played in some of the best leagues. I'd happily take him.
Look at it like this, a few seasons ago we had mcculloch and cribari. Now we have a chance of having kiernan and senderos, that's a big damn improvement.

Agree5 Disagree1

25 Aug 2016 16:20:25
why, if senderos is so good, did we not snap him up during his trial?

Why did manager drop everything to try and sign lescott instead?

Why have we not snapped him up now lescott deal is dead?

Is it because MW himself has doubts?

Agree2 Disagree1

25 Aug 2016 17:14:44
cant believe I've just read on here wilsons distrubution is class he hits 1 good 40yd pass out of 5 if anybody is against senderos signing please pipe up with a realistic option he must be impressing in training or he wouldn't be invited back i don't believe warbs will sign him just for the sake of it that's wasting a wage end of the day there will no b no mad rush on senderos's part he's a free agent transfer window means hee haw to him.

Agree3 Disagree1

25 Aug 2016 19:59:30
The guy has been on trial for a week or 2 the management have seen enough to give him a deal. if he is fit he is a player worth a couple of mill from what I can remember. Everyone wanted new centre half which we got. Give the guy a break.

Agree3 Disagree1

25 Aug 2016 22:19:48
Quite right DeanM1872 can't believe the negativity toward Senderos. He's obviously not at the level he was when playing with Arsenal etc, if he was we would be nowhere near signing him. He's came up here on trial because he wants the chance to prove himself and play with the Rangers. At least give the guy a chance. If it doesn't work out what have we got? a seasoned international player, 31 years old, ex Arsenal, AC Milan, Valencia, 57 caps and three world cups, there to help the younger guys in the team. Not a bad deal IMO.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 22:21:17
Recbob well stated! Our summer transfer business has been outstanding! Names like like Barton, kranjcar and senderos playing at our great club once again is a great thing to c! I would be more worried if we were spending 3 or 4 million here, there and everywhere! Our club has lacked a proper scouting system for years now resulting in us missing guys like rosier and dodo too many times in the past! No longer the case so y can't we b happy about that.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 23:02:56
Jaym i think ramos would struggle up here. slow as a week in the jail mate and he's been done for years. hehe.

He said were done when we get a centre half.

24 Aug 2016 20:52:44
I definitely think we will spend money on a CB before next week as I think if we can spend to bring in garner then there must be funds for a decent CB it will make no sense if we are top heavy everybody and there dog knows we need a CB soon.

Believable5 Unbelievable7

24 Aug 2016 21:59:27
Senderos deal will (hopefully) be concluded soon, Crooks is back after featuring in 20s match last night that should help at the back for now.
If any1 of interest becomes available on loan at end of transfer window we may act but squad looks good. Only position we are a little light is full back with only Hodson for back up, I know he can play both sides but any injury to the 3 and we have no back up.

Agree1 Disagree4

24 Aug 2016 22:57:07
2 priorities required after last season. a dominant centre back and a plan B striker with a physical presence. We have yet to buy either and the clock is ticking.

Agree1 Disagree7

24 Aug 2016 23:54:28
Ally, I believe garner is hopefully the answer to your second problem there mate.

Agree4 Disagree3

25 Aug 2016 00:10:29
What do you call garner.

Agree3 Disagree2

25 Aug 2016 08:58:51
Garner is as physical as Kenny Miller, he is a nuisance player, not about to dominate any 6ft 4 defenders in the air, and as we don't play long balls, that would be inadequate anyway.

As for spending money on a CB. why spend money that we don't actually have? Or are you looking for the return of Murrays Moonbeams?
Live within our means is the new order and to be honest if that means playing 2nd fiddle until we are in a position to pay fees again, so be it, I would rather finish 2nd than not at all.

Agree4 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 09:04:07
Garner is 5 foot 10 and about 9st lol😁 hardly a big physical presence.

Agree1 Disagree3

25 Aug 2016 11:21:53
got to spend money to make money in this instance.
if we don't get va quick solid cb for me we will be found wanting in the big games.
if we do spend something on a cb we may be rewarded with champions league football rangers need to get to the group stages of the champions league to get back to the level of player we are used to.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 14:10:01
How can you disagree the guys official page has him at 5 foot 10 weighing 9 stone 7 it's fact nothing to disagree with here, move along .

Agree8 Disagree4

23 Aug 2016 15:02:18
Understand why some fans want him - but he's got major fitness issues and has done for several years.

No point signing someone who will spend most their time on physio table.

That's ignoring whether you rate him or not.

I really hope we have something else up our sleeve.

Agree9 Disagree5

23 Aug 2016 15:11:54
Is the window not only for transfers from club to club. Isn't there an extended one for free transfers?

Agree9 Disagree2

23 Aug 2016 15:49:21
There is no window for free agents as far as I am aware?

Agree7 Disagree2

23 Aug 2016 16:00:26
Mark I think if a player has been unattached during the window then yes you can still bring him in after it closes, however I'm not sure what the spfl regulations are as I believe you have to submit your final squad for registration before a certain date. Could be wrong though.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 16:01:15
Mr Nice who do you want us to sign? Clear that the lad Marriappa is waiting for Hull.

Agree5 Disagree1

23 Aug 2016 16:53:55
mr nice I agree with u for a change i'd like us to get our finger out and get sum1 with pace and is a good cb.
why can't we get bougherra back or go for that lad kyle bartley who looked promising to me 5 years ago he will be 24 now and I think he is with leeds I think its worth getting bougy in at least u know he has the knowhow of the Scottish game and is very keen on coming back and would do so for very little money.

Agree2 Disagree6

23 Aug 2016 16:59:23
The problem we have is that Kiran is woeful, Hill is past it and Wilson is consequently the lesser of three evils even though he is himself of limited ability. As a consequence we need at least one quality centre back and perhaps two. One of them needs to be strong in the air, able to read the game and ideally, able to organise the defence. Unless the same player is also quick then the second centre back needs to have speed. Mariappa would have been ideal but absurdly we appear to have failed to give him the deal that he wanted so we went for Lescott, (who is not as good a centre half), and what ever the reason he did not sign. So we are left with Senderos, maybe, (albeit that there is no guarantee that he will sign), or the two week links from last season and Hill. Not a very inspiring option if we are hoping to win or come a close second in the SPL.
We have until midnight on August 31st to resolve matters, (unless we sign a free transfer guy - and there don't appear to be many of those about other than the three that we have been dancing round)! The alternative doesn't bear thinking about unless we go to a traditional one centre back and use Crooks as a defensive midfield player in similar tradition to when we had Roberts and Butcher. The problem still remains that neither of Kiernan and Wilson come anywhere close to being remotely in the Terry Butcher class!

Agree6 Disagree6

23 Aug 2016 20:25:24
I've said it before Tom. The biggest problem we have is warburton sees a player in Kiernan. Kiernan will get a game before Wilson.

Agree1 Disagree2

23 Aug 2016 21:53:16
Sadly mark, that could be our downfall! Wilson was a good player when he was with us first time round. He made a mistake going to Liverpool although I sometimes wonder what part our owner at the time played in that given the hideous amount of money that we were offered for him.

He did look decent when at Hearts but was poor even last season, (although I can appreciate the comments from some that this has been down to the partnership with Kiernan) .

What I dread is how this partnership will shape up against Celtic, Hearts or Aberdeen and for me, Hill is not a realistic alternative.

Pur t simply, if Kiernan retains his position then I fear we will be embarrassed in a number of games. I hope I am wrong but I can't see it.

Agree11 Disagree2

24 Aug 2016 13:42:07
Fd- I honestly don't know. The club will know through agents who is available.

I really hope that we have something else in pipeline. The delay in signing senderos suggests to me that they do and he is the option of last resort. Time will tell.

What I would say is that the answer to our defensive problems lies on the training pitch, not in the transfer market.

Agree1 Disagree2

24 Aug 2016 15:41:16
Bartley is on loan from Swansea at leeds, Bougherra wouldn't be anywhere near what he once was and even at that he was susceptible to the odd mistake.

I agree Senderos might not be the long term solution, but i'd trust MW's guise, he's steered us through a decent market and in my opinion the only thing he hasn't addressed is that gap at the back. The way we play doesn't exactly help either with both CH's leaving a gap in between all the time.

Agree3 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 13:21:51
Times running out for us to get a decent centre back in now, surely senderos would pick us over a 2nd their German team.

Agree2 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 03:06:30
Do we all forget how kiernan and wilson played against manky mob in semi final. both were absolutely outstanding. difference that day was that they were afforded a bit of protection by ball. something that is badly lacking in every game. Every ball into the box is defended by these 2.with no help from the rest of the team. i'd be more worried why it takes us about 12 chances per goal scored rather than the odd bit of sloppy defending.

Agree0 Disagree1

22 Aug 2016 20:45:48
Rangers are still after another CB the reason Senderos hasn't been signed yet as he's the fall back incase this other one doesn't come off.

It's all being kept very quiet but is a name as big as Lescott.

Believable13 Unbelievable18

22 Aug 2016 22:35:47
So it's at least 7 letters 😅.

Agree14 Disagree1

23 Aug 2016 01:17:35
I've seen mexes being mentioned a lot online, not totally sure I can see that happening but if it is him that would he a class addition. He's a free agent so it is more likely since I can't see warbs paying for a cb when he can easily get one for free.

Agree5 Disagree1

23 Aug 2016 01:39:48
Blueboy78 if this is the case and there is another CB like you say, then why not sign both PS and this other bigger name CB, and maybe give Hill a coaching role, that's if there is another CB we are looking at?

Agree7 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 07:16:30

I would like to know your source as currently Senderos is the only CB mentioned by the media.

Agree7 Disagree2

23 Aug 2016 08:46:36
I can't give you my source just that it comes from inside the club.

Check my info on Lescott I mentioned him before the press did as they know nothing.

Agree5 Disagree3

23 Aug 2016 08:52:54
copland1, the media weren't wise to a few of our signings until a day or 2 before we signed them.

On a player note not sure about Mexes as on field stats not good. Number of appearances for Milan. Also recent disciplinaries not good either. Good footballer when he plays properly.

You certainly come out with some guff.

Agree0 Disagree2

23 Aug 2016 21:19:34
I do know there are a few decent cbs that are free agents. Such as Carceres, mexes and santana. As much as I'd love to have any of them I do see ferdinand a more realistic option.

Agree4 Disagree1

23 Aug 2016 07:09:34
Not saying signing process easy but why wait release "pressure" at weekend just to build it up again for the following week - Kilmarnock game on Friday delaying now will mean any new player unlikely to be "bedded-in" for Celtic game.

This was a priority position after all - only 2 new signing started game against Motherwell?

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 07:52:40
He's not got a source he's hoping like the rest of us that there's someone else being lined up if it's a free most of the good ones are snapped up tho mexes would be great if he's fit.

Agree2 Disagree0

22 Aug 2016 19:44:40
Senderos was back training at Murray Park today with his representatives arriving to negotiate a contract this evening.
I can't guess how much he wants or is being offered but I would suggest a deal is imminent and could be concluded tomorrow.
My source advised he was heading for the talks immediately after training today.

Believable7 Unbelievable6

22 Aug 2016 20:52:07
I reckon he wouldn't demand that high a wage being out of the game, i'm happy with him he'd go through a brick wall not the fastest but at least can head the ball.

Agree3 Disagree0

22 Aug 2016 20:54:27
It looks like Senders is keen on a deal. I wish him every success if he signs. The guy started off well in his career and then was plagued by injuries. If we can keep him fit then I reckon that he will be a positive addition to our team. God knows we need a couple of decent quality centre backs!

Agree6 Disagree1

23 Aug 2016 10:24:25
think we need to be sure we can't get sum1 else in first as he will get injured and leave us with what we have and I don't think he ever reached his potential. we need a marriappa or sum1 like him with pace.

Agree3 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 21:57:44
I'm happy either way but a little concerned that a deal hasn't been concluded yet to be honest I expected him to be announced today and it's went very quiet on that front.
Was he back in training today? He was definitely in yesterday and went for talks straight after.

Agree0 Disagree1

22 Aug 2016 20:14:02

Team To Play Killie Hopefully


Kiernan, Senderos if he signs
Wison, Crooks if he's fit



Bench: Gilks, Barton, Kranjcar, Waghorn, Hodson, Dodoo, Hill

We definitely can't have Rossiter, Barton and Halliday in midfield as it severely slows down our play, need some pace in midfield.

Agree9 Disagree4

22 Aug 2016 11:28:52
put it this way I trust warbs but if he brings in another player and he isn't a good c/ b then my trust will waver a wee bit as we all can clearly see we struggle at the back and in the first half of that game warbs should have been shouting at tav to stop leaving space at the back we where lucky not to lose more than one in that first half!

WhatATeam I hope that's not the team that plays Killie as we will get beat. I was at the game on Saturday and Barrie McKay was worse than a man down. His second touch was a tackle every time.

We should be starting with Kranjaer as he creates the opportunities and then subbing him until he gets match fitness, this way we will have more opportunities to end the game early.

Also I think Dodoo should start as he was good once he came on. He still hasn't settled in fully but constantly was running and after his performance on Saturday, we can't not play miller.

tav has been our best performer in the league so far he put at least 5 excellent crosses into the box but no hunger from our forwards made them useless also think he's bn defensively sound so far kiernans the problem forever ball watching no strong enough and i think him and wilson have a competition to see who can ping the most balls out for a shy.

Personally would like to see Dodoo get a start, I really think he can improve the attacking option .

i would like to see dodoo moh and garner and a midfield 3 of barton kranjcar and windass and the defence improving ALOT.

ive got to be honest guys I don't care about the big names in our team I wouldn't start with niko or barton as I think they are off the pace and warbs does the right thing and bring niko on when the other team gets tired as he is more effective then.

my midfield would be rossiter, forrester and holt.

since that is the first time I've seen McKay not play great i'd still be picking him on the left put dodo out on the right where he loves to play and garner as the striker.

off the bench i'd bring barton on for rossiter niko for holt at 60 mins and bring miller on for dodo with 20 mins left. just my opinion no one has to like it.

Dodoo ahead of Miller as well! What games have you's been watching this season because it can't be the same ones that I have. Dodoo has not shown enough for me so far in the games that he's featured. Still waiting to see this blistering pace that he's meant to possess because he's struggling to get away from defenders when he's played. Nowhere near ready to play in the first team yet.

@ Rick Witter - Coming on for a few minutes where were defending desperately against Dundee is hardly a chance to prove himself! He managed to set up a sitter for Baz which predictably he missed! Motherwell, played out of position as a sub and from what I can see contributed more than McKay did in the whole time he was on the park! If he's not ready then very few of our player are!

Rick Witter, cany believe i missed Miller out, he'l definitely be in squad, i'm just thinkn btw, we've got quite allt of playerd this season, there's definitely gona be a few unhappy faces on matchday when they realise they haven't even made the squad, wee Holt will be back from injury soon aswell, forgot to put Halliday in my squad aswell man.

I like that team but given we have just spent £1.5m on a striker I suspect that he will start rather than Dodoo. Would definitely go with Forrester and MOH before McKay. I just don't believe that McKay can hack it in the SPL and certainly not at outside left.

I see the usual objective hammering of any young Scottish player to come through our youth ranks and break into the first team is still alive and well on here anyway. Give the kid a break and try supporting and encouraging him instead of berating him. He's consistently been one of our best players, imo our poty last season and outside of fod, tav and Wallace has played the most amount of games out of the entire squad. That alone tells you how highly warburton rates him. Almost the first thing krankjaer, who has played and trained with genuine top quality players, said following his initial training sessions was the sky was the limit for this kid yet he clearly can't spot a talent either as all I read in here is the usual garbage previously reserved for Hutton, Adam etc from those that obviously know better. The bit that really gets my goat though is the sheer ignorance of the position he's been asked to play. It's not his job to 'beat his man, get to the byline and fire in a cross'. His job is to retain possession, cut inside and either play it to someone else inside him or, more often than not, slide Wallace through to cross it in. He does the latter superbly well and consistently every game, which is why he is constantly picked whilst the other positions are rotated. If you'd rather he hit the byline then moan at the manager, not mackay, he's doing what's being asked of him. Ok, he was poor the other day, but so what. Everyone has an off day and he's still young, he won't be outstanding every game. The grief he gets is beyond belief at times.

I can't see Senderos and Crooks starting as they both are not match fit so I think it might be Tav, Kerian, Wilson, and Wallace.
Like to see Barton as DM with Rossiter and Holt or Windass
We have so many options upfront but I would expect Garner to play some part of the game v Killie.

Whoever says Mackay can't hack it in the SPL is bonkers, he's one of the brightest young talents in the league. Yes he can lose the ball but he's one of very few players in our team who's not scared to take a man on. This is the reason why so many bright young prospects don't make it at Ibrox is becos we don't encourage them to be inventive and creative. Too quick to get on people's backs when they try a bit of skill. Bunch a dinosaurs.

IMO there is far too much negativity on here towards big Kiernan. The guys is only 25 and is being asked to play more football from the back than probably any centre half on our history, in addition to shutting down quick breaks from the opposition with little protection from the front or flanks. I think any centre half would be exposed to criticism in these circumstances. He can only be judged when he has two full backs who can defend and a holding midfielder bedded in. Until then the level of criticism is unfair.
