This is what BBC have just posted regarding our interest in Joe Garner:

"Rangers are sniffing around and they want to take Joe Garner, " said Grayson after Preston lost 2-1 to Fulham on Saturday. "We are not looking to sell.

"We don't want to sell anybody but every player has a price. "

Ibrox manager Mark Warburton has been keen to add another striker to his squad.

And he said after Saturday's 2-1 Scottish Premiership win over Dundee: "We are looking for a number of players. We're looking for a striking option and a defensive option. Hopefully we can make some progress in the next few days. ".

Rafbob, I truly hope we will sign joe garner but I honestly feel he will be too expensive for us to buy, he only just signed a new 3 year contract with pne last season meaning he's still 2 years left on his contract, they will want over the 1 million quid mark for him and I honestly don't think we'll pay that, hope I'm wrong as he looks good and would do well with us especially the way we play and the chances we create.

2.) 13 Aug 2016 21:10:31
Warb15, I agree with what you're saying.

Been getting the impression that we are happy to enquire but with very limited funding for a while now.

Hopefully we can make an exception for this lad and a decent C. B.

3.) 13 Aug 2016 21:11:13
127 apps 49 goals . Do we think that's a good return? I'd take the lad as I think up here he'd rip it up as he's an out and out striker!

4.) 13 Aug 2016 21:39:56
It is a goal every 2.5 games; not a bad goal rate if you look at the level he's playing, I know it isn't premier league but it's better than SPFL standard.

I share your view that he'd do well up here Blackwoodbear.

5.) 13 Aug 2016 21:43:01
Rafbob, W15, given we have limited funds I think it better if we push the boat out on the CD position. Based on everything I have seen we now have a critical need for a quality central defender.

6.) 13 Aug 2016 21:52:07
I can't see us paying in the excess of 1 million for a player.

7.) 13 Aug 2016 21:59:50
Fd, your are 100% right but it looks as though we are further into this deal than any other.

Hopefully a C. B is quietly being sorted behind the scenes and they will announce it soon?

Not holding my breath though lads.

8.) 13 Aug 2016 22:29:31
BWB it's a better goal for game ratio than waghorn had.

9.) 13 Aug 2016 23:35:16
Worrying times ahead then if we can't stump up a million for a player.

10.) 14 Aug 2016 00:47:16
Think he'd be a good signing. I think some money has been there for players but we've been smart with the freebies n can spend money or cf and cb.

11.) 15 Aug 2016 11:25:07
how much would bougy be he said he wants back and is better than anything we have also kyle bartley is estimated at just under 1 million and that boy impressed me when he was here especially when he went through brown!
I think baougy is out of contract and bartley has a year left I think we would be better getting those two paired bougy is only 33 which I think is good for a cb and they both have good pace and can read the game.
its not a rumour its just an opinion!

12.) 13 Aug 2016 22:28:59
He cost £2/ 3million. So rules us out.

13.) 13 Aug 2016 23:54:53
I honestly don't think we have a a centre back lined up.



09 Apr 2016 15:15:12
Waghorn still not fit for the match tomorrow or next week.

The biggest talking point for pundits and Celtic fans will be the stonewall penalty, which was a penalty.

However, if Dembele hadn't tried to buy one before then the ref might have blown the whistle.

There are always reasons for a result, so you have to get over it and move on.

I am glad we got a draw today after all the bile being spouted from various pundits and fans.

A great response from our players, well done.


1.) 12 Mar 2017 18:05:56
It was one of those penalty claims that some referees give and some don't, it was anything but a stonewaller as Brenda said. Still it was nice to see his petted lip for a change

2.) 12 Mar 2017 18:13:18
I don't think it was a stonewall penalty. I agree with what you are saying KPBLUE.

3.) 12 Mar 2017 19:24:53
Replay shows handball by grifirhs. Stonewall only if you need glasses and an eye test.

4.) 12 Mar 2017 19:56:20
RafBob, it is easy enough for us watching the game on screen with replays. The ref has to make an immediate decision. He was clearly unsighted. As Strachan said, the referee has to be 100% sure it was a penalty.

5.) 12 Mar 2017 20:44:22
I'm with you Cuillin, I am sure if Madden has watched any of the replays I have then he will be happy with his decision.

The thumb has a cheek to bang on that Hill never touched the ball! It changes direction on its own then?

6.) 12 Mar 2017 21:42:23
It wasn't a stonewall penalty rafbob! I've seen them given but it wasn't a clear cut penalty! Clint hill actually gets a touch on the ball! You can clearly see that with the movement of the ball and griffiths is stumbling into the bargain! Not a clear cut penalty at all, for me mate!

7.) 12 Mar 2017 22:06:17
It makes it all the sweeter that bit was a penalty. But just a thought do Celtic never miss a penalty?

8.) 12 Mar 2017 22:28:13
Never a pen. great tackle by the 107yr old who kept the £200m player quiet and managed to sneak a goal for good measure



11 Mar 2017 20:13:47
I think a lot of narrow minded people need to take a breath and open their eyes to our new manager.

I'm sure he was managing a Mexican team associated with Celtic when he made those comments, hence the use of the term "Celtic family".

Some people are only to happy to see what they want and not what is actually said.

I can, hand on heart, tell you that I couldn't care about this guys past; it's his future I'm concerned with.

Support the manager and he'll do well for us.

I'd happily welcome the man and I'm looking forward to seeing his team choices.


1.) 11 Mar 2017 20:42:19
I remember a guy signing after he stated Celtic are the only club he wanted to play for. He turned out to be a great signing for us.

2.) 11 Mar 2017 20:57:58
Out of all the other names mentioned he would been my first pick for manager gives us opertunity to sign foregein players with his knowledge in difrent countrys rather than the likes of mcinnis wright rowett mcleish

3.) 11 Mar 2017 21:32:53
Remember another Celtic man signing for us mo Johnston scoring in last minute against Celtic for us at ibrox and he celebrated the goal like he was a bluenose.

4.) 11 Mar 2017 21:43:13
Well said rafbob completely agree with everything you said and for all the people who say he's a celtic man. he's a professional who will do his best for what ever club he's employed to just look at miller he played his best for the team that employed him because he's a professional be it us or them so let's get behind who ever comes to rangers cause believe me they are all there to try there best and not play/ manage ×××× because there celtic fans it doesent happen in the world of professional football.

5.) 11 Mar 2017 21:45:55
Listen get off the guys back am quiet sure he would never have thought that he one day would manage rangers football. it's a funny old game just look at kenny miller and the guy loves scoring against them, but at some level Pedro should be more mature than that.

6.) 11 Mar 2017 22:28:55

When you say he will do well for us what exactly do you mean by that? Or where do you think he will take us?

7.) 11 Mar 2017 22:29:00
The new manager seems a breath of fresh air, from what I've read it sounds like he is what we're looking for. he doesn't seem to take any scrap but sounds to be a firm but fair Manager who also gives youth a chance.

I think he would love to clear out a few players BUT this isn't as easy as it sounds. SO I think he will work with what he's got and prob bring in at least 4 solid players.

The only thing I do not know is what system he prefers? He isn't all about possession tho as he did win a game 5-0 with 38%. So if any Bears out there know anything about his type of system please let me know.

As far as I can tell he is very adaptable and most importantly I think he will shake the place up and the difference between him and Le Guen is that the fans know that and if any player trys to rebel and use us it ain't going to happen not one player right now has 100% backing from us all have still to prove they should be picking up a big wage!

8.) 11 Mar 2017 23:28:14
Narrow minded? You mean morons?

9.) 12 Mar 2017 11:54:02
RafBob - common sense as usual - the 'brothers' comment is an irrelevance - he is our Manager and demands our support - the board were under pressure - the solution would be to appoint a 'Rangers Man' but they need to appoint the right man - heard nonsense about not being able to afford McInnes with compo - if Pedros salary is even close this is more than enough to pay of the sheep and empty McInnes - I agree this is a risk appointment but the low risk options such as McInnes and Wright guarantee no more than years of 2nd place mediocrity

10.) 12 Mar 2017 12:13:00
I couldn't care less about the video but based on where we are and where we aim to be i am very underwhelmed. Time will tell but i doubt he be manager start of next season.



08 Mar 2017 21:44:45
Barcelona making more history tonight!


1.) 09 Mar 2017 01:27:46
By diving and cheating for free kicks and penalties. Unbelievable from some of the best players on the planet. They deserve nothing

2.) 09 Mar 2017 06:39:50
RafBob, still got people disagreeing even though history was actually made. Best team in football by a mile.

3.) 09 Mar 2017 07:16:39
Bayern will beat them.

4.) 09 Mar 2017 07:35:41
aye they could beat them lw, but on their game they are just amazing. that was one of the richest clubs in the world they just beat 6-1

5.) 09 Mar 2017 09:10:30
Normally I would be full of admiration for a team that accomplished what they did last night, but not in the manner they did. The way they were throwing themselves to the ground at every opportunity show a complete lack of class and respect. I for one hope they get pumped in the semis.

6.) 09 Mar 2017 10:39:46
Ha ha. So a wee dive 93Rd min on Sunday waghorn pen you shall be raging? It's all part of the game now

7.) 09 Mar 2017 11:53:50
I would celebrate in the heat of the moment and then once the dust settled and I wiped lager off the ceiling I would quietly utter some mumblings of discontent under my breath. Haha

Seriously though, you're missing the point. They are the best team in the world. They are supposed to be a shining example of how the game should be played, yet they resort to conning the ref for large parts of the game. It's disappointing.

Maybe I'm just bitter because I talked myself out of putting £10 on a Barcelona to qualify and Dortmund -2 double! Haha

8.) 09 Mar 2017 13:07:20
Agreed gram was never a foul on Suarez for the pen. When you want to watch a quality game between two top teams leave Barcelona out of it. So frustrating watching them fling themselves to the ground constantly and harrassing refs.

9.) 09 Mar 2017 13:17:57
I can't stand Barcelona or psg but Barcelona were on fire last night but when you can spend 100s of millions on player and still dive and cheat what do you expect. Will never forget their game against Chelsea years ago when they cheated and the referee never refereed a game after it.

10.) 09 Mar 2017 13:30:00
Everything that is bad in the game regards on-field cheating was on display last night. Disgusting.



08 Mar 2017 21:16:54
I can understand people who want to see a clear sense of direction from the board, appointing a manager etc.

However, on the manager; what is the rush? If we signed a guy tomorrow and he failed then people will be shouting about rushing into it and making poor decisions.

What is the saying about pleasing all of the people some of the time?

I am personally happy to see the team winning with Murty, (although I thought he couldn't cut it) he seems to be able to get a positive response from certain players.

It's just my opinion and I respect those who just want a name now because part of me also wants that, I just wouldn't want the wrong name again.


1.) 08 Mar 2017 23:27:20
I think the difference nowadays is that our Club are having to work harder to attract the calibre of manager the fans expect and are used to having. You would never have imagined in the past someone would turn us down in favour of Southampton for example. The board haven't exactly been shouting from the rooftops. I think they are being a bit more coy, ensuring that whatever decisions are made are the right ones. At least I hope that is the case.

2.) 09 Mar 2017 03:10:30
Really pleased with job Murty doing in the short term and at first thought give him the season, but if we do qualify for Europe new manager would only have a few weeks to sort squad. Don't want a knee-jerk appointment but need someone in soon to assess the squad and begin to prepare for next season now.



04 Mar 2017 19:17:47
I would love for the team to keep this mentality and use the confidence gained from today.

Garner passionate as ever from what I've read, I missed the game as I was out in Oxford!

Brilliant result, I think we'll end up with Hibs in the semi-final.

Try and ignore that word unaudited Cuillin, I don't think our board wouldn't lie about profits given what we have been through.

Very pleased to see the word profit used in the same sentence as our club, long may it continue.

Coaching and confidence. Well done Clint Hill! It's not the win but I bet Murty is proud of that.
