Any news on Jon Toral, thought deal would be agreed by now.


1.) 10 Jan 2017 20:32:00
He got a flight up tonight, should be finalised tomorrow afternoon.

2.) 10 Jan 2017 21:23:07
He returned to arsenal from grenada so i'd imagine only matter of time now

3.) 10 Jan 2017 21:24:33
Arrived in glasgow tonight deal should be done tomo

4.) 11 Jan 2017 09:47:10
Having medical today and should sign after that. I'd like to see Toral, Hyndman and Bates all play in Sunday's friendly.



03 Jan 2017 10:46:42
If the comments reportedly made by the former manager of Lincoln City are accurate, I hope we will not be shy making our views known to his current employer, with whom many of us spend a great deal of money.


1.) 03 Jan 2017 11:13:59
who, and what comments did he make.

2.) 03 Jan 2017 11:50:09
Ed, any idea what the guys on about?

{Ed001's Note - not a clue mate. Had me confused.}

3.) 03 Jan 2017 11:50:58
Ok I give up!

4.) 03 Jan 2017 11:58:03
Dont know how to post on main page here, i seen someone post about lafferty guy i know facebook me this morning and fitted his gas mains today in thorntonhall. don't know why he's up could be for us with all the rumours.

5.) 03 Jan 2017 12:11:54
Sutton. but which comments.

You don't really take him seriously do you? The guy is a walking parody.

6.) 03 Jan 2017 15:19:22
@fd - I've no issue with the comments, I'd be cheering if an ex Rangers player said something similar against Celtic .
On a side note did anyone catch his petted lip before the Sheep v Jambo game? He was sticking up for Cathro about never having played the game and Michael Stewart said to him ' you'll be able to confirm that not every good player makes a decent manager '! His face was priceless.

7.) 03 Jan 2017 15:24:02
Honestly guys. Is it not about time rangers gave up this silly mentality of everyone hates us and just move on. I know a lot of fans who don't have sky or bt yet can't even listen to the game on BBC radio scotland. If you keep wanting to boycott everything then it shall soon be that we won't be able tm see rangers anywhere. TV coverage is a massive part of brining sponsorship in.

8.) 03 Jan 2017 14:52:35
This vile bigot's comments are all over the Daily Rhebel's website where he is calling for Celtic to 'show no mercy' and 'finish Rangers off forever'. This from a so-called TV pundit who is supposed to show objectivity in his comments. With BT we have nobody defending us or even attempting to challenge this crazed bully's comments as one of our former captains is merely a nodding dog for Sutton. Here's one of his comments:
“The money they’ve accumulated from the Champions League, and with the chance to add to it next season by getting there again, this is the time finish them off. You don’t let them off again. "
And BT give this hate-filled bigot a platform to spew his foul slabbering to a huge audience.

{Ed001's Note - sorry what is vile or bigoted about that? You have completely lost me there.....}

9.) 03 Jan 2017 17:29:14
seriously mate have you been reading any news about rangers on the sites and the papers, its bordering on hysteria and ridicule, its not about boycotting anything, everything said about us is sheer negativity.

10.) 03 Jan 2017 17:44:31
I don't think Sutton is the man everyone is waiting to get the go ahead from to drop the axe on us, he is an ex Celtic player turned big mouth pundit nothing more.

Who cares.

{Ed001's Note - well said. That is all he is so why people care I don't understand. Same goes for every pundit, they are irrelevant.}

11.) 03 Jan 2017 20:59:53
Mind you, big Sutton is usually right when he speaks! lol HH.

12.) 03 Jan 2017 23:14:36
Why should we bother what he says I only want to listen to what we say we will be back and when that happens we won't hear from them what goes around comes around it will take a little time but once it happens I for one will enjoy it.

13.) 04 Jan 2017 12:22:34
Aye bob like when he said dembele was a horrible signing after 2 games.

14.) 05 Jan 2017 09:54:55
I am more interested in what we do than what he says! These outbursts are what keeps him in a job!
Perhaps we should e more concerned about what King said and what he has failed so far to deliver on!



17 Jul 2016 19:17:21
Think its a month now since the Copa America and Marriapa's last game for Jamaica. His contract was not renewed by his club and I not heard anything about him figuring with any other club side. If he saw match yesterday on TV and the Gers defence, he would have seen the opportunity that could await him. I have a sneaky feeling he could yet end up at Ibrox. Believe he came thru that Watford academy and will be some sort of bond with MW (although maybe Brenda too! )


1.) 17 Jul 2016 19:28:16
After yesterday's defensive display, really hope this happens!

2.) 17 Jul 2016 20:05:23
if he wasnt happy enough to come after 1st signing talks then i don't want him at all, its an honour to be a player for our club cash shouldn't be the be all and end all.

{Ed041's Note - Sadly it plays a big part now.

3.) 17 Jul 2016 21:16:52
When was the last dominant no nonsense centre half we had? Amoruso. gough weir? Warbs doing a wonderful job but needs to sort out centre half position. yesterday again showed our frailties in defence. Other than that squaday looks really strong.

4.) 17 Jul 2016 22:23:52
Cuellar, Bougherra.

5.) 17 Jul 2016 22:48:13
The problem as stated is neither of them is a leader, there is very little communication between them and neither of them tell each other to get in position like a weir, gough or amoroso would.
That's what's missing
Ricksen, Hutton, Stevie smith in his youth, Porrini, Numan etc all used to go forward but they had leaders behind them in these guys.

6.) 18 Jul 2016 09:52:19
Totally agree Northger. A decent team wuda been 2 up on us on Saturday. Hopefully warbs sorts it soon. Other than that we r doing real well. I think rossiter will be an absolute steal and along with barton will b bossing the mid. We play wonderful stuff at times albeit we sometimes try and walk the ball in the net. Looking forward to new season massively.

7.) 18 Jul 2016 08:18:45
I see there's not a lot of bears out there happy with our defence me either
I do think hill will take 1 of the CB positions he's a leader just hope he's got the legs.

But there's still a few weeks to go to the league starts and I'm confident we will get the right CB in as we are all in agreement that's a position that needs sorted ASAP
The Jamaican has still to find a club so it could still be us hope so but mcp will have other targets if it means spending money I'm sure we will have a defence sorted by 6th of August.

8.) 18 Jul 2016 10:32:24
I think people need to cut Kiernan some slack here. He was out injured for the America trip and in his first game back. Clean sheet. He is constantly left open by his defensive RB partner and Halliday as we all know, is not a CDM. We are an extremely attacking side, but the moment we put in an ACTUAL CDM i believe we will see the best of our defense.

9.) 18 Jul 2016 11:36:10
I think Wilson and kiernan get criticised most of the time deservedly so at times but what I will say is for the position they play they are still relatively young and still have a lot of learning to do, they both might grow into it, but i really agree they are both easily out jumped at set pieces, and in the premiership worries me, it was easy to spot Motherwells tactics were to sit back and hit us on the counter attack, but if they had better forwards they could have been two or three goals up before tav scored, looking forward to see how clint hill performs tomorrow.

10.) 18 Jul 2016 12:18:00
Wee McDonald bossed RK on Saturday and there is much better than him waiting this season. Do feel some sympathy for RK but don't believe is battle ready for what awaits.

11.) 18 Jul 2016 15:07:49
I think Rab and Danny are solid defenders who do a decent job under the circumstances. Two world class defenders would struggle to man a back line by themselves. For me, our week link is Tav. Never a defender. Rab is left all too often to cover RB and this stretches the CHs and leaves the defence open like an Amsterdam hooker. Don't get me wrong, CHs are by no means perfect. They need to work on set pieces and communication but MW asks a lot of them and I don't think two new cracking CHs would make any difference. It's our style of play. As long as our attackers are doing their job and scoring more than the opposition, I for one will be happy.

12.) 18 Jul 2016 17:05:55
How can Wilson lack experience mate?
He's played for Liverpool, hearts and Rangers, twice, more experience than many, played for Scotland, played in CL, no, he's just crap.

13.) 18 Jul 2016 18:06:44
Northger most of us older guys would prefer a big tamm forsyth type player, the big guy didn't pussy foot about, heavy but fair tackling defender, oh for another big tam, never be seen again at our place.

14.) 18 Jul 2016 19:10:42
Danny Wilson in his first spell with us looked outstanding even as a raw teenager in spl and CL. It is sorely evident that Sir Davie gave him the leadership/ assurance he required. As I think Northger said. they do not communicate at all and neither do they take ownership. We need a no nonsense man like Bomber Graham Roberts gough or butcher. I don't doubt MW is doing his best to rectify situation. Is mariappa of that ilk? Anyone shed any light?

15.) 18 Jul 2016 23:59:17
My honest opinion is that Wilson is a lot better than keirnan, I wanted big rob to b the answer to our commanding cb issues but I'm loathed to believe he's even as good as mcgregor and is actually pulling Wilson down to his level now, Wilson has critics I know but the simple facts r he is a better defender, passers and is even more dominant than keirnan, my opinion of coursr.



12 Jul 2016 17:24:41
Dominic Ball has started season training with Spurs 1st team squad. Word is thu that he will be surplus to requirements and will be sent out on loan or sold.


1.) 12 Jul 2016 17:48:46
Unless its a few months loan he will be sold in final year of his contract and can sign pre contract agreement in January.



10 Jul 2016 21:28:27
Kaylen Hinds, Arsenal youth prodigy striker coming on loan. Arsenal delighted with development of Zaleem in Glasgow.


1.) 10 Jul 2016 22:00:54
Rangers looking for someone older than that.

2.) 10 Jul 2016 23:56:10
My uncle phoned me from London the other week to tell me this. I've no idea if he's any good. He said he was 18 though so can't see him doing much. Boy would need to be a prodigy to start. Uncle does advertising job at Emirates so that's where he got the info I presume.

Any news on what is going on with MOH?


1.) 13 Jan 2017 23:14:12
He's meant to be going on loan but he's in the park and they can't catch him. 👍

2.) 14 Jan 2017 17:25:35
they still owe money to st johnstone i heard so they have to give hime back

Anybody know when the Red Bull Leipsig game is and if live on RTV?


1.) 05 Jan 2017 20:31:50
Gd game is Sunday 15th Jan, not sure if it's on RTV but can probably get a link for it through Kodi (or whatever streaming source you use)

2.) 05 Jan 2017 20:37:50
Fd 15th Jan, don't know about tv but heard we have sold 8k tickets not including overseas fans.

3.) 06 Jan 2017 10:55:20
Thanks guys, also received email from club this morning. RTV don't have UK rights for the game, sold to Premier Sports.



01 Jan 2017 13:20:00
Yesterday was disappointing result but we salvaged some pride. Wednesday against SJ was terrible and not acceptable from a rangers team.

I thought we had solved the Right Back position a month ago when we promoted Hodson. Not only was Tav posted missing at the second goal (familiar sight) he was out muscle by Izargurie a number of times. Forrester's decision taking at the end was almost shameful.

Anyway it is past now, we are the world famous Glasgow Rangers, and somehow the world today does not feel quite as bad as I feared it would.

Happy New Year to all.


1.) 01 Jan 2017 13:41:35
I wouldn't say that we solved the right back position. We improved upon it with Hodson being given this role but until we have a right back of the calibre of Gary Stevens, Bobby Shearer, Porini etc., we are still not at the level we should be. The problem with Warburton is that Tavernier is one of those players that he will not drop, Halliday being another one!

2.) 01 Jan 2017 14:21:17
Slightly unfair on Hodson - he hadn't been given a run.

We don't want to build on good performances rather go back the "tried and tested" failures.

Something will have to change in 2017 the sooner the better!



27 Dec 2016 20:09:47
The January acquisitions, purchase or loan, should be of quality and calibre to play immediately in the first 11. THe so called Barton wages are available and DK said further additions would be made in January. No squad enhancements please MW/ DK.


1.) 27 Dec 2016 22:10:56
Agree that we need to look at players who will strengthen our starting Xi Fd and I'm sure Warbs and Weir will have targets in mind. However If we are able to bring in a couple of decent players who can fill a gap then that's important aswell as I feel Wallace for example doesn't have a challenger for his spot and competiton is healthy and can bring out more from players. 2nd place will be ours so from the end of Jan it's about laying down a marker for next season. Just my opinion mate.



27 Dec 2016 11:17:58
Would really like to see Dodoo get more game time. Won the match at Patrick with a great strike and followed up with a beauty at Hearts only for Forrester to be judged offside. Would like to see him feeding off Garner. MW has said will use the squad this week so will be interesting to see line up against SJ tomorrow. Regardless of line up unless we increase tempo from ICT game we will lose.

Cannot think of another player so few of us have actually seen play yet who almost everyone rates so highly. Really hope the boy gets his confidence back and returns focused, fit and ready for Europa qualifiers.

A very good Ranger who served the club well but does not have what we require now to continue to take us forward.

Think it's for the best. The lads confidence is rock bottom after the Hearts game when I think he was thrown under a bus. The important goal from the next 12 matches is to secure 2nd place and go on a cup run. The 2 new lads will likely play in all games and with Windass fit and hopefully Rossiter returning we should be well covered. The objective for Crooks should be to get game time in and return stronger and confident to fight for a place in the team next season.

Always difficult when young boys let go and wish them all the very best.

Great to see Thompson getting contact extension and look forward to seeing him next season, also Hardie. Would like to see young Burt figure in the 2nd half of this season, looks good and ready.

Would also like young lad Bates get some fiest team game time in the second half of season.

Good call, very talented lad, should promote him to the first team squad next season after Raith loan completed.

The 2 new lads looked useful today. Thought Torel scored a good goal and Hyndman looked to have a killer pass in him. Would like to see Dodoo playing, Waggy tries hard and will be an important player on second half of season but lacks quality.
