Scottish Sun confirm today that Murphy has signed on loan.


1.) 07 Jan 2018 07:31:31
I think now we need a striker in because we can’t go the rest of the season with Morelos up front because he isn’t the answer. A good guy to have on the bench but that’s it. He lacks pace and can’t beat a man and his finishing a lot of the times is woeful. If we can get the 5-10 million for him from villa that a lot of the folk on here were debating about a couple of months ago then even better.

2.) 07 Jan 2018 07:45:50
Eh? You don't rate Morelos, fair enough but you think he's worth £5-£10m but only a squad player, subby? Morelos is our best striker, our top scorer, in his first season, in a new country. He's played up on his own for large parts of the season without a recognized number 10 behind him. He's been one of the few successful summer signs.
Who do you think we should replace him with Rick?

3.) 07 Jan 2018 07:49:41
He is the top goal scorer in the league and an excellent young talent but you say he’s rubbish but you want 10million for him?

4.) 07 Jan 2018 08:42:06
He's still just a young boy and you need to remember he has played half a season in Finland before he came to us. Add that to the fact he's up front on his own almost all of the time, he's bound to be tired at times and go off the boil! Expect more to come from him

5.) 07 Jan 2018 08:53:33
How can you possibly say you don’t rate the guy but want 5-10 mill for him? He’s played up top himself most of the season he doesn’t give defenders a minutes peace, the laddie can finish. Granted he had a poor day in front of goal against Celtic but I would be more concerned if he wasn’t getting any chances, I agree that we need another striker but to play WITH him not in place of him. Desperately need a creative midfielder.

6.) 07 Jan 2018 08:56:25
Great bit if business, relies on Murphy proving he is good enough to wear the badge before we buy him like it should be. Regarding us being skint and relying on director loans, weren’t a lot of people complaining that King hasn’t invested 30mill Now that he providing this through loans all of a sudden the focus of the media is that we are skint? Was always the plan from king, invest until we are back playing consistently in Europe and then we will be self funded. Am quite happy how the board are running things financially.

7.) 07 Jan 2018 09:49:19
Full of negativity Rick. Cheer up mate it’s not that bad 😂

8.) 07 Jan 2018 10:28:59
I think yous were lost with my sarcasm. Of course I don’t think he’s worth that and was ridiculed at the time for saying he’s not even worth £2m when yous were all debating whether we should sell him or not if we get an offer between £5m-£10m from Aston Villa who aparantly were interested at the time which I doubt and a few even said nothing less than £8m would be acceptable! Comical.

9.) 07 Jan 2018 10:44:22
Rick so he is a bench player, our bench players are now worth £5-10 mill so does that mean our other first team regulars will be worth £30-40 mill you could buy the whole team for under £10 mill but your judgement of Morelos is strange he is our top scorer the leagues top scorer he has played the loan striker Roll his holding up of the ball to allow other players forward is great work rate great I think with someone up there with him you will see just how good he can become

10.) 07 Jan 2018 12:22:26
For me Morelos is proving to be Superb value for £1M, one of only a handful of successful signings that we’ve made in the last 6 years. He will only improve in the years to come and while he may never be a £10M striker he will be great in our league and if we can get him better service from Murphy etc. then he may hit 30 goals this season. I do agree with Rick W that we need a striker in this window as well, we shouldn’t be going into games vs the bottom 6 without 2 up top!

11.) 07 Jan 2018 12:28:18
Morelos is still a work in progress, right now we need a more experienced striker. Morelos had a poor game against Celtic and msde some basic errors, we need someone who csn do it in the bigger games!

12.) 07 Jan 2018 14:10:15
Well said blueberry. Worth 5-10 million but he should be on bench, some people talk some u know what. Get a grip.

13.) 07 Jan 2018 14:13:03
10 million his middle name must be dembelle

14.) 08 Jan 2018 00:33:28
The best natural and explosive finisher at the club is the boy Dodoo. Disappointed does not appear to be on plane for Florida.



04 Jan 2018 12:08:01
Scottish Sun reporting Murphy may well fly up today for a medical.


1.) 04 Jan 2018 12:35:21
I seen this article too. Where they refer to Murty as "caretaker" boss.

So disrespectful

2.) 04 Jan 2018 14:44:13
Jamie Murphy will have a medical tonight, fee agreed, murty wants him on the plane at the weekend. Also trying to push through deals for Martin and 1 other before the trip.

3.) 04 Jan 2018 14:50:07
Having medical now according to bbc. Should be a good signing. Shows a bit of intent, hopefully not the last one in.

4.) 04 Jan 2018 14:40:37
BBC website reporting Murphy having medical now

5.) 04 Jan 2018 15:46:42
Simply a brilliant transfer nothing else to say.

6.) 04 Jan 2018 17:33:15
STV reported that the deal could be completed in time for team flying out tomorrow.



29 Jul 2017 19:28:57
Jam Tarts are toast. Jamie is on his way.


1.) 30 Jul 2017 02:12:24
Yeah 100% Doiger. Especially after Cathro doesn't play him stating he's unsettled and isn't PERFORMING!
Cathro really did need to win that game. Can only think that it is now so imminent that a Club/ Manager does not want a Player going out to pick up a stupid injury!

2.) 30 Jul 2017 08:54:59
Jam tarts are toast? Isn't that a pop tart?



04 Jul 2017 10:15:17
Media now reporting that the deal to sign Dorrans will be completed within 48 hours now that the bid has been accepted. Good news indeed.


1.) 04 Jul 2017 12:25:52
Really hope so
It's good to have depth in the squad but depth in our quality is what will help us challenge for trophies

2.) 04 Jul 2017 12:26:28
Need him in on or b4 7th July for next round in Europe assuming we get there mate. Walker can be a wildcard tae.

3.) 04 Jul 2017 12:49:33
Hope walker does sign, looked quality last season when playing against us, think he would be similar to the signing of mccann

4.) 04 Jul 2017 17:16:22
Can only see it in a few Scottish rags and it's speculative at best. Still no further on than it was weeks ago as far as I'm concerned! Getting very boring now

5.) 05 Jul 2017 00:34:46
We are still four or five players short in terms of a squad, unfortunately that includes two first eleven fullbacks! Anyone that thinks that Wallace is a captain is sadly deluded!



03 Jul 2017 10:08:32
Deal for Dorrans on the brink of being completed according to DR. let's get Walker in now too but I hope we hold on to Mackay.


1.) 03 Jul 2017 10:26:12
if we are only getting the reported 750k for baz i would rather keep him!

2.) 03 Jul 2017 11:12:41
Why keep a guy who in 5 months can leave for a development fee? Take the 750k, put in a release clause and go from there.

3.) 03 Jul 2017 11:56:31
he signed a 3 year contract did he not last year?

4.) 03 Jul 2017 14:01:55
No FIFA Guy that's the problem he refused it him and his agent want wages that he simply has not deserved with recent performances he thinks he's entitled to wages on par with the high end performers take the 750k and replace with Walker who wants to be at Ibrox

13 Jan 2018 10:03:29
I hope Rangers get Docherty but there is a dilemma. The nasty, greedy Scottish teams will try and squeeze as much out of us as they can so do we pay their asking price or bid what we think he is worth and walk away if they try to play silly persons? With Murphy, Goss and Docherty and maybe Naismith plus Dorrans and Wallace to come back from injury, I think the rest of the season could be very interesting indeed.


1.) 13 Jan 2018 10:47:41
Still think final 3rd is lacking. , Morelos is good but not at his best yet I don’t think and certainly not by himself. Think we need an old fashion box striker

2.) 13 Jan 2018 11:29:46
To be fair to hamilton they deserve a good price for the guy, i can see where your coming from ie walker deal etc but lower teams i don't actually mind paying good money for, for hamilton 800k is a lot of cash and will go far, i'm actually just glad we might get him how many times have we said we should of went for a player that cost pennies, if an english team comes in we can't compete, so we have to act quick and not mess about

3.) 13 Jan 2018 12:09:55
You've got to keep things in perspective. What did we pay the Mexican teams for two very suspect players yet we didn't go for walker at 300K. We didn't try and compete for Moult at 500K and are not interested in McLean. If Docherty's worth 600K pay it. Morelos is a good signing but one of the worst headers of a ball for a striker I've ever seen. I think only Waghorn beat him to that acclaim. For those who weren't around there was a 16 year old named Derek Johnstone once upon a time.

4.) 13 Jan 2018 12:58:30
So when we are selling players i. e. Windass if he goes? we expect millions? but when it comes to us buying (cough cough couch splutter) excuse me I almost chocked there. we expect to get players for hundreds thousands/? and have the hard neck to call them greedy? omg DOIGER get a bloody grip man.
As for buying anyone/? have we won the lottery or something? our last foray on transfer market with Murphy ended up bit embarrassing and became a loan deal instead, can you not realise we appear to be "skint". live within our means. was that not most sensible supporters views in 2012.see that's went bloody well.

5.) 13 Jan 2018 13:09:13
I actually think the murphy deal ended up well and good for us

6.) 13 Jan 2018 13:58:09
In which way is it good for us? although admittedly we don't actually know the full details of said loan? like most things at our club.
Is it your thinking that if he is "crap" we just hand back? or if he is good and value changes we have already made a deal?

7.) 13 Jan 2018 14:52:56
Trust me jamie murphy WON'T be crazy! He'll be a fantastic signing for us! Head and shoulders above anyone at ibrox for the left wing position!

8.) 13 Jan 2018 15:30:37
SPIVKING totally agree mate it astounds me how many people can't seem to grasp that we are "skint" but yet its spend spend spend on here, mostly on guff players like Naismith!

9.) 13 Jan 2018 15:37:08
I think we’ll end up with a £750k deal for Docherty and a striker on loan before the end of the window and possibly Martin on loan also depending on the terms of the loan which should be favourable as he is off the radar at Norwich and they will at least want him getting game time somewhere surely!

10.) 13 Jan 2018 16:43:21
What’s the bets SPIVKING and Calvin55 are sitting opposite each other in Calvin’s green n White covered bedroom waiting on the Rangers game to come on Premier Sports? 🤣🤣🤣

11.) 13 Jan 2018 17:40:51
Wee_Bear, People are trying to have a constructive discussion on here, Do your carers know you are on here?

12.) 13 Jan 2018 18:41:58
Aye wee bear, prob got matching tracksuits from sports direct. 😂😂👍

13.) 13 Jan 2018 18:42:22
Think we buy the boy Docherty from Hamilton and take Naismith and Martin on loan. That would do me.



09 Jan 2018 10:28:02
Keeping in positive mode, I think Murty is bringing more out of certain players. With Murphy and Goss signed and Pena gone, and O'Halloran and maybe Halliday returning, this could be a decent spell for us. Jack will be back and hopefully Dorrans not too far behind. Even if no other signings are made this month, I think the performance at the piggery showed there really isn't that much in it. How about:
Foderingham; Tavernier, Alves, Wilson, John; McCrorie; Dorrans, Jack, Murphy; O'Halloran, Morelos.


1.) 09 Jan 2018 10:31:21

2.) 09 Jan 2018 10:39:48
No Candeias or Windass?

3.) 09 Jan 2018 10:51:55
I was thinking about that line up too but have doubts over MOH and Candeias has done well for us in MOST games.

4.) 09 Jan 2018 10:52:09
Windass blows hot and cold, far too inconsistent. Candeias is good OK, but I was just trying to see what the line-up might look like with Dorrans, Jack and Murphy all available plus O'Halloran back. Don't know where Goss would fit in?

5.) 09 Jan 2018 11:26:57
I would get rid of alves he isn’t interested in playing for the gers send in back home

6.) 09 Jan 2018 12:01:00
Doiger I think Goss will be the backup man for both DM roles in the 4-2-3-1 formation. He may do well and become a first choice in those roles. If these rumours on here about McCrories ankle are true then we will need Goss to perform big time. I like your team but I’d also have Candeias ahead of O’Halleron!

I also wouldn’t give up on the diamond formation as that has suited us of late, O’Halleron through the middle with Morelos in this formation could cause teams problems if they come at us!

7.) 09 Jan 2018 12:30:00
I don't get the excitement behind MoH. The guy is rubbish and never in a million years a rangers player.

8.) 09 Jan 2018 12:42:09
MOH has the one thing in the modern game that scares defenders (particularly those as poor as Lustig etc) and that is pace. Warburton insisted in asking the team to play the ball to MOH's feet out wide with his back to goal - that's not his game. MOH needs to be running onto through balls, in that scenario he is uncatchable and has proved with St Johnstone he can finish. Give the guy a proper chance and let's see how he fares without having to play under Warburtons, slow pedantic build up

9.) 09 Jan 2018 13:24:49
How about bates instead of alves, can't hold bates back.

10.) 09 Jan 2018 16:10:53
Tav, Bates/ McCrorie, Wilson, John;
Candias, Dorrans, Jack, Murphy;
Can move to to a:
Tav Bates/ McCrorie Wilson John
Dorrans Jack
Candias Windass Murphy



08 Jan 2018 09:46:15
Naismith, Cummings and Murphy would be three superb signings. Let bygones be bygones for goodness sake!


1.) 08 Jan 2018 10:06:49
Sorry Doiger but I'm prepared to cut my nose off to spite my face on Naismith. I was a fan but will never forgive him and the other no mark after that horrendous press conference. Cummings, a great big no. Murphy is a good player and will do well for us.

2.) 08 Jan 2018 10:21:17
You need to get a life Seeker. What did Naismith ever do to you personally? It is a no-brainer if he was to join and play for free - nothing for Gers to lose. It is this entrenched bitterness at times from some Rangers fans that keeps dragging us down.

3.) 08 Jan 2018 11:48:33
Just my opinion Doiger. We are all entitled to it. I've seen some of the other guys on here say the same thing. You think he deserves a chance, I don't. If you are fine with it that's great. I'm not i have a season ticket and turn up to support a fantastic club. I Don't want somebody back at the club who doesn't appreciate us and how we nursed him through 2 career threatening injuries for him to leave in the manner he did. In the words of wee Nacho - no thanks

4.) 08 Jan 2018 11:54:46
Life's too short why all the hatred and negativity, the boy is a player of a calibre that has for too long been missing. As for Cummings he is only 22 and people are saying he only scored in the championship and did nothing in the Premier league, how many 17/ 18 year old strikers are banging in goals in the Premier league, in the championship he scored 55 league goals not bad for someone between the age of 18/ 21, he may seem like a wee ned but this is scotland and people from certain areas just act like that and if we want goals someone with a bit of attitude about themselves is needed

5.) 08 Jan 2018 13:46:51
Everybody’s entitled to their opinion some will forgive some won’t forgive Naismith me I didn’t want him back but I think he really regrets what he done knows he made big mistake whether he gets another I don’t know doesn’t seem to be move for him probably do good job

6.) 08 Jan 2018 14:11:47
If as is reported, that naismith is willing to play for free to earn a contract then I would have him back! What he said and did was a right sore boot in the baws! Maybe he wants redemption guys! He could definitely enhance our squad. An apology and play for free till end of season. I could live with that. We have all messed up over the years

7.) 08 Jan 2018 17:03:37
I agree with the seeker. I can't forgive Naismith for way he left. If some of our fans can forgive him then that's fine but I can't.

8.) 09 Jan 2018 13:00:50
Let’s get he boy Naismith in, he owes us nothing and clearly loves the club. All of us would have done what he did back then, how many of us would be prepared to do what he is offering now. The boy is a class act.



01 Jan 2018 11:07:37
We should build this team around McCrorie, Wilson, Jack, Tavernier and Dorrans when he is back fit. Also, blooding more kids like Barjonas, Hardie and Burt (when fit) would pay dividends. Bates looks the part too. I think Alves' time with Rangers is going to be short and I doubt if Miller will come back as good as before. If we can offload some players and perhaps recall O'Halloran plus a couple of decent signings this month and some luck with injuries and we won't be far away.


1.) 01 Jan 2018 14:29:00
You have just described a team that will complete for second with Aberdeen every year that's all.

2.) 01 Jan 2018 15:39:41
Kindly explain?



31 Dec 2017 11:07:25
Yesterday's performance (should have been a win) shows we do have talent and the attitude needed to win games. Considering that Dorrans, Jack and Wallace were all injured it is encouraging to think what we can do when they are back plus maybe a couple of signings. I still don't understand why my favourite Hardie didn't at least get a run for the last 15 minutes. He may well have buried the chances Morelos missed! I was wrong about Kranjcar sadly, didn't realise how unfit and over the hill he was. If we can hit the ground running after the winter break we can still give Septic a run for their money. We play the Sheep on 24th January.


1.) 31 Dec 2017 12:22:56
Doiger what is it that you have seen in Hardie? I haven’t seen much of him tbh but when he has come on he doesn’t appear to be blessed with pace, strength, hold up play, or sniff out chances? I’m not being critical of him but I haven’t seen anything to suggest he deserves a run and Murtie must be of similar opinion. Happy New Year when it comes 🍻

2.) 01 Jan 2018 12:01:27
Wallace is a step backwards from John. We'd have been worse off if Wallace had been playing! As for Hardie, he's had a few run outs and has never looked remotely threatening. Looks like he could be doing with a few good dinners in him to beef him up a bit.

3.) 01 Jan 2017 12:10:56
That's maybe because when Hardie does eventually get on its for like 5 mins top, never gets enough time to do anything also When You have Pena/ Herrera getting taken on well before you then the poor guys confidence must be all over the place, even a past it Krancer getting near 80 mins ahead of him is a joke! Anyway Happy New year to all fellow Bears.

They are hardly 'ripping it up' down there? 10 goals for Waghorn and 8 for Garner. Morelos has scored 10 and should have had double that. Weouldn't want either of them back, Waghorn certainly had his chance. No to Mackay as well. If he wanted to play for Rangers he would have stayed and fought. He followed the Bread Man and backed the wrong horse. If we can get Murphy and Naismith plus the return of O'Halloran that would be good business. We've Dorrans, Wallace and Miller to come back too.

Baz. There is a saying, "pride comes before the fall". Ashley is a businessman and a very successful one at that. Whether we like him or not is irrelevant. He didn't do what Whyte and Green and that shower did to us. I'd take his money. Same with the bitterness about Naismith. The man had to think of his future and that of his family. It wasn't his fault that Rangers went tits up. I'd take Naisy back on a year deal. I think Morelos would score even more with Naismith lying just behind.

Sad, obsessed Tim. Barcelona pipped us. What did they do to you lot again quite recently? Oh yes, 7-0 I believe. Or was it 7-1, or was that PSG. Can't remember, too busy focusing on our team. Focus on your own sad crowd because we're a-coming to get yous

Widely reported that Amazon are contemplating a bid for the EPL rights when they come up. I subscribe £7.99 a month for Amazon Prime so that could be interesting! I have Sky but don't subscribe to their Sports channels. I use Now TV occasionally as 'one-off's. I know Sky own Now TV but at least I'm not paying Sky month after month for their sport.
