Couldn't agree more about Rossiter. You don't get that many youth caps for England and become captain of there U-20s if u don't have something about you.
He shouldn't be written off because of last season


1.) 12 Jul 2017 17:10:04
Imo rossiter is going to be a major player for us this season. If he stays fit and given a chance. He could possibly be our best midfielder, I really do rate him that highly. You don't play at epl level at his age if your bang average. Future captain I think if we can keep hold of him. But I thought that about Kevin Thompson lol.



09 Jul 2017 16:44:55
Do we actually need McLean, I don't think so, we've got Rossiter, Jack, Pena and Dorrans all as 1st choice central midfield players, we only play 3 in the middle, I obviously haven't seen Pena play but McLean isn't better than any of the others.

I do think we need Jamie Walker tho, If Barry McKay went for 500k Hearts can't really expect double that for him.


1.) 09 Jul 2017 18:51:42
I really don't see what anyone sees in rossiter absolutely terrible if you ask me. Looks tiny, brown will do him in the first old firm game if he makes it.

2.) 09 Jul 2017 19:35:34
Rubbish, the boy Rossiter has great potential and will become an outstanding player if he can stay fit and develop.

3.) 09 Jul 2017 19:37:03
We also have young Barjonas who plays CDM and hopefully Pedro will give him some game time depending how things go. Would like to think he would be used for Lge Cup games same for Atayaki and definetely Alnwick. Always think the back up Keeper should get that Comp. These lads need to get on and Lge Cup is perfect stage.

4.) 09 Jul 2017 21:38:23
Haha brilliant. "He looks tiny", what do you think of Messi? Rossiter gets stuck in more than most, he's one of the only players we have that is good at pressing players when we don't have the ball

5.) 10 Jul 2017 11:19:15
ever heard of Billy Bremner, one of the hardest midfielders ever, all 5ft 6inch of him

6.) 10 Jul 2017 15:31:06
I'm not talking about his height. I've seen more meat on a butchers pencil. The guy is rank rotten and if any of you can come on here at the end of the season and tell me different then fine. How any of you actually know how good he is, is beyone me as I've never heard of many people who watch England or Liverpool under 20s. He won't even get a game this year.

7.) 10 Jul 2017 16:06:18
Perth, maybe you should try some of your own medicine.
How come you get to voice your opinion but everyone else needs to wait until the end of the season?

8.) 10 Jul 2017 16:55:49
Who needs enemies when you've got supporters like Perth. Deary me, get a grip. Rossiter will be the real deal if he can stay injury free.

9.) 10 Jul 2017 17:15:38
Of course I hope the boy proves me wrong. But haven't seen anything that leads me to believe he will can't see him getting a game. Maybe I'm being slightly critical but after last year can you blame me.

10.) 10 Jul 2017 17:18:59
What do I think of messi? Haha don't really think that's got anything to do with it? I think the role rossiter is supposed to be doing requires someone with a bigger physique but that's just my opinion

11.) 10 Jul 2017 23:32:28
Ok then if you want to compare position for position then what about Mascherano, Cambiasso or Davids. All were small guys but get stuck in. Judging by your standards they're too small to have made it in football

12.) 10 Jul 2017 23:56:19
N'golo kante is 5ft 8 and is considered the best holding midfielder in the world. Tenacity, positioning and timing more important than height and strength

13.) 11 Jul 2017 13:26:39
Haha well we'll see if he ends up in the same bracket as them then, my guess is he won't. I'm not saying the guy is sh*t just because he's wee but the SPL is pretty physical and I think he'll struggle. Only time will tell.



25 May 2017 14:25:27
I read yesterday that every team line up Ajax have put on the pitch since 1981 has had at least one academy player in it. That is quite remarkable.
I know we are going down a different path with our academy now and i hope it's productive but I really think that is something we should aim to copy. I'm still for signing 2/ 3 quality players each year if we can but realistically we have to promote more of our own and make it clear there is a pathway for them.
Hopefully there will be no signing of mercenaries after a retirement package or diddies from lower league England who can't believe there luck when they get a 3 year contract and double there old wage.


1.) 25 May 2017 15:25:58
aye a can see barry mckay playing in a uefa cup final.

holland have had a quality international team, we have not . end of story

2.) 25 May 2017 16:33:14
That's his point blueblood. Holland have a good international team because of their youth set up and the way they develop younger players. It's something we should be copying. I saw a stat last night, don't know how accurate it is, but it said that Ajaxs team is only worth 15 million so surely that should be motivation to get a better youth setup along with youth scouting in place.

3.) 25 May 2017 16:50:54
totally agree PeterHuistra said a while back too Benfica do exactly the same with there youth, there team is crazy young

4.) 25 May 2017 16:55:59
Our young guns never fulfil potential. why. not given a chance. simples. 60 to 100 first team games by 20 year old soon mature them

5.) 25 May 2017 21:41:27
Davie that is right but the fans won't wait. Whilst the young players get that 60 game experiance there are a good few losses along the way. Then the fans want the msnager out so the manager won't take the risk.

6.) 25 May 2017 22:32:06
It doesn't have to be that way Johnny. 2 good youngsters coming through each season playing alongside good players should progress. there is always pressure on Ajax, Benfica, Sporting Lisbon, Dortmund to win games/ leagues but they don't fear blooding the youngsters. Now more than ever we have to hope to produce more of our own

7.) 25 May 2017 23:31:01
Peter you know that all Rangers want is a winning team. I agree that 2 young players coming through each season is great but they need to play alongside established good players. Rangers don't have any.

8.) 26 May 2017 06:05:27
I don't think we are too bad at bringing young players through HOWEVER, we are very quick to get rid and other teams in Scotland pick up the nearly finished article FOR FREE!

9.) 26 May 2017 07:29:59

Good post mate and spot on the issue is that there currently are no good established players in our team to help the youngsters. Barjonas in his limited appearances showed more than Halliday, Holt and Windass showed all season

10.) 26 May 2017 18:07:55
Holland cannot have that good an international team because they didn't even qualify for euros last year

11.) 27 May 2017 07:37:17
Yeah the national team is struggling just now but they have had some amazing teams in the last 40 years and have been a force in world football



13 May 2017 19:22:57
I agree that just about all our problems lie in the fact we don't have a midfielder than can boss a game and if need be crunch his opposite number. we are all lightweight and predictable at best with a real lack of quality. I hope we see Rossiter blossom next year and Niko comes back like he was when he got injured and not when he signed.

What I'd like to see is 3/ 4 quality players sign, no more squad players. An athletic dominant centre half. A box to box midfielder, a forward that has that little something in his locker to bring others into the game and will easily hit 20 a season and one other.
I honestly think with 3/ 4 quality players it will bring more out of the players we already have.

For the avoidance of doubt, players from Ross County, Motherwell and Hamilton are not what I'm talking about as the answer.


1.) 13 May 2017 19:56:16
Kenny Miller thinks Rangers only need 2 or 3 quality players to win the league? So it should be pretty easy then. Just bring in 3 and that's it sorted.

2.) 13 May 2017 20:14:40
I should have finished off by saying what a nuptie kenny millsr is. He is trying to undermine Pedro. Saying how rasy it would be to make rangers invincibles. Comparing what Rodgers has done to how Pedro should compete. He needs to look at how many goals he has scored compared to Dembele and concentrate on his own perfirmance which has been average at best. Instead he wants to tell Rangers how easy it would be to win the league? Kenny if you think anyone is buying into your undermining bullshit then you carry on.

3.) 13 May 2017 21:44:49
Maybe when Miller said we only need to players he was referring to Gareth Bale and Messi! Even then our dodgy defence would let us down!



25 Jan 2017 12:14:30
Stewie 25, Billyb

Asking the manager to take a job anywhere but ibrox isn't negative. whatever.

Saying we should sign someone to dictate the midfield, we did that, Joey Barton. Sign a defensive midfielder, we did that his name is Jordan Rossiter

MY POINT is there are way too many moaners on here forgetting we were drawing with Peterhead a couple of season's ago and we had a much bigger budget than them. People are moaning thinking we should beat everyone 4-0 and be signing strikers for 4 million, take a reality check.

Sure everything isn't perfect, some signings have been a disaster and the defence needs sorted, I'm really not sure Joe Garner was the best way to spend 1.8 million and also off the field we are no closer to sorting the retail deal. I understand that but don't feel the need to moan about it every post.

We are making progress on all fronts and are much more like our old selves than b4 King and Warburton took over. BUT should we finish worse than 2nd in the SPL I would agree that is not good enough.

Instead of saying u want the manager out, our midfield is useless and King is liar try posting realistic alternative options that would engage a positive discussion.


1.) 25 Jan 2017 13:00:23
Well said!

2.) 25 Jan 2017 13:38:49

Everyone is entitled to their opinion mate! You don't need to agree, that's cool also.

I bump my gums often about things not being good enough. Positive energy is, well positive. However the truth is we have not moved very far forward at all, since draws with lower league teams.

The biggest difference from all the previous years is simple.

We are now back in the top league and there is no longer room for excuses or indeed time if we are to stop Celtic achieving dominance over the next 10 years. No more excuses that their titles are tainted because we are not in the league to chase them, that's all gone now. The record will show that from this season on every title Celtic win, we are in that league and failed to stop them.

Nothing has come from the board, King has been invisible and the investment is bare minimum. On top of that we have a manger who has consistently made mistakes and consistently says we will learn when he needs to be doing most of the learning. Now if we finish second great, that will be an achievement. However at this present moment I see nothing from this season that will see us compete in Europe and may well see us embarrassed. So on that front we will have to wait.

I am all for positive energy thinking etc. But this is a forum and all us fans are entitled to blow off steam when we feel it's required.

Give Warbs some money and we might really see what he is or isn't capable of, however so far he has spunked money away on bad investments! The truth is this season is a mess, second or not.

3.) 25 Jan 2017 13:51:51
I totally disagree with you saying this season is a mess, what did you expect from this season, we have been out this league for 4 yrs, we are slowly finding our feet, it's the first time our manager has played premier football, so he's also learning about this league, I agree we must finish 2nd but I think we will, I also expect to be much better next year, and I fancy at least 3/ 4 better players to arrive in the summer, you are right in saying that every fan is entitled to their opinion but the negativity on here is sole destroying at times, I think we are making good progress even though our board is being held back by Ashley and co, but we will get there and I fully believe it will be warburton that will get us there but time will tell if I'm right or wrong. but I believe in them to get the job done

4.) 25 Jan 2017 14:05:13
Listen mate I am certainly not saying everyone should agree with me! Of course the whole point of a banter page is for discussion. I just mean that if people choose to moan about everythingto do with the current regime then I think it would come across better if they post an actual realistic alternative?

It's your opinion that this season has been a total mess but I'll reserve judgement on it until May.

Cheers for the sensible response though and totally take understand the priority in stopping 10 in a row

5.) 25 Jan 2017 15:32:15
gdog 10 are you having a laugh. we are miles better than we were 2 years ago. remember long ball ally mccoist!

6.) 25 Jan 2017 13:24:40
well said the gas!

(old guy sat nxt to me at ibrox for over 25yrs used to call huistra the gas metre. peter)

far too much negativity on here - we are making progress but fan expectations need managed as for some if we ain't beating everyone 3/ 4 nil every wk they moan

we'll get there may just take a bit longer than some are prepared to accept

7.) 25 Jan 2017 14:07:47
Spot on peterhuistra! Some of them on here just don't think through and see the full package. My message as always to them is, think what's happening with our full club and not just get warburton out because of some signings not working out thus far, or out injured!

8.) 25 Jan 2017 14:09:14
a lot of us rangers fans no we are not going to spend 4 million on a player but the odd 1 0r 2 million pound players who we can then sell on for a profit instead of Free agents who we are not going to sell on for any profit as they will leave for free as there not good enough.

and as king promised funding surley this is in his reach is Warburton the man to spend such money I doubt he is looking at his signings so far People say he has not had funds but looking at prices paid so far 500k for rossiter 10k a week doodoo 250k 6k week o'halloran 500k 5k week garner 1.8 million 12k week Barton 20k week then probaly signing on fee and then pay off to leave the club kranjcar signing on fee probaly then 8k week gilks 5 k week and sendoros sitting on 16 k week out of all these players only 1 is a first team regular poor transfer business indeed so I very much doubt Warburton is the man to spend more money we can not afford these mistakes

9.) 25 Jan 2017 14:58:05
g dog, we will finish second maybe not as close to them as we would have liked but they made few great signings which has given them a great season with only 1 draw.

we are stuck in a retail contract that makes it hard for us to but quality players and the ones we have signed haven't exactly lived up to their promises and or got injured.

if we keep going in this direction we will be better than the rest of the spl teams and that's all you need to do to be in with a shout for the league!

10.) 25 Jan 2017 16:54:54
its just going to takee time but we are getting things done off the field we have had some bad luck with some signings barton/ krankar/ rossitter we have also had some woeful ones this season we are also missing the goal contribuitions from waghorn;tavenier making it a struggle lately the manager hhas varied his tactics but we can only wait and see how the rest of the season pans out

11.) 25 Jan 2017 20:03:24
James Stirling

I agree mate 100%. Beat everyone else and in theory the league could be won withour even beating Celtic. Things are better, but so much has not moved forward also. Next season is massive, for us all. The board, the management and us the fans. Next season we need to up a gear or two or there will be many like me getting fed up with it all.

12.) 26 Jan 2017 13:01:20
It's not been bad luck tho you sign players that are always injured or trouble good chance it will happen again. His transfer policy is a disaster

He's been given squad number 15 four this season and has played in all the friendlies so far so I'd be very surprised if this is true

1st point - is Stevie May better quality than joe Garner? I'm not Garner's biggest fan but I don't see how May is better quality, especially after not really kicking a ball for 18 months.

2nd point - Pedro said he's going to sign players HE KNOWS. Players he knows are 7/ 10 performers each week so unless when he was on the beach in Dubai he used to tune in to all PNE and St Johnstone games I don't think there is an ounce if truth in this one, or the Motherwell defender nonsense

To everyone that is against Barry returning incase it turns into another Coisty situation, I didn't hear anyone complaining when he was no2 to Walter Smith with us and Scotland, in fact I never heard a negative story about Ally when he was number 2. So if it is Barry (personally I hope it is) let's wish him the best and get on with it, if he can help nurture any of our midfielder's into being half the player he was he'll have earned his money in my book

Having more quality around him this season should definitely help

Ryan Tunncliffe. Where would he play when we already have an abundance of centre mids?

He was offered an improved contract at Liverpool that's why we paid compensation to sign him. He was very highly rated there

Liverpool didn't "let him go" they offered him a new contract, he turned it down. Simple
