Rangers midfielder Billy Gilmour is set to sign for Chelsea ahead of his 16th birthday on 11 June, having rejected the offer to stay on at Ibrox.

All the best if he goes, I hope he doesn't regret the decision down the line.


1.) 29 Apr 2017 10:43:42
I really hope I'm wrong, however, I feel he won't reach his potential by going to Chelsea. He's just another 1 of the many many talented kids on there books who spend more time on loan than anything else with very little chance of breaking into first XI.

2.) 29 Apr 2017 11:21:11
Hate to say it but going by the Glasgow Cup Final, he's nothing extraordinary. Tidy, but not exactly the sensation he's being portrayed as. I'd call it 'Pogba syndrome'.

3.) 29 Apr 2017 14:43:24
I really hope your wrong? Why he's jumping ship for a pittance I really hope he ends up at Leyton Orient

4.) 29 Apr 2017 15:26:56
We can't grumble at the reported 500k tbh

5.) 29 Apr 2017 15:29:50
He will be another Ryan Gauld. who? Good riddance if he doesn't want to give 2 years to Gers.

6.) 29 Apr 2017 15:30:17
RR watched him in the youth cup final as well didn't exactly stand out to me either mate.

7.) 29 Apr 2017 15:26:52
Shouldn't be the only one leaving Ibrox. Need a clear out. Take whatever cash we can get for any of them.

8.) 29 Apr 2017 15:35:25
Well said glasgow ranger if he doesn't want to play for us he can leave.

9.) 29 Apr 2017 16:26:10
We get this same string every 3 weeks. The boy and his family are making a major mistake, but if he goes then he does with our best wishes.

10.) 29 Apr 2017 17:10:33
You said that he was leaving before his 16th Birthday and then followed up by if he leaves, so Which one is it? you kind of contradicted yourself there, also i'm am sure unless the rules have changed in the last week or so you can't sign a professional contract until your 16th Birthday so Again that isn't possible which makes me think your guessing all though we all know he is Joining Chelsea by now or should I say Chelsea reserves under 20s or MK Dons on loan cause we all know he won't get anywhere near the Chelsea first team and surely himself and father both know this too but Unfortunately as usually its all about the money as both Gilmour and his family have had there minds turned by money houses and cars all put in on the deal just to rote in the reserves, it s a joke and getting annoying now taking are and other Scottish Clubs youngsters when they are nowhere ready for there first team, Why?

11.) 29 Apr 2017 18:24:57
the pish i saw produced today and were debating billy gilmour let's address the fact our clubs a joke top to bottom we've a squad of gutless imposters we have a manager who can't learn from his mistakes our clubs in a bad place

12.) 29 Apr 2017 18:51:28
Read posts that weren't posted before 10 in the morning and aren't about Billy then Colshy, there are plenty on the banter page addressing the pish on the pitch.

13.) 30 Apr 2017 07:41:27
Saying he didn't stand out in the cup game when he was playing lads 5years his senior is a bit daft. In the u17s he bossed the game and teed up a great goal. The kids a talent, no doubt about it. And is clearly one of our most valuable assets in getting us 500k (pick a 1st team player worth that much right now! ) and once he is sold on for a few mill we will get a small cash injection. A good bit of business for us in my opinion. Plenty more fish in the sea

14.) 30 Apr 2017 07:58:54
Billy should go with nothing but best wishes. It will be tough to stand out in a place like Chelsea but to wish the boy bad luck is harsh as he is just that. a boy remember that guys, just a kid who has probably been advised by loads of people to make this move.

Give the lad a break and wish him well.

15.) 30 Apr 2017 10:05:18
Good luck to him I'm glad we're getting 500k as he didn't boss the 17s game he done one or two good things no stand out it was the Celtic kid who's brother plays for the first team that scored and bossed the midfield



21 Jan 2017 12:10:07
RangersFC XI: Foderingham, Hodson, Kiernan, Hill, Wallace, Halliday, Holt, Toral, O'Halloran, Miller, McKay.

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. ".


1.) 13 Aug 2016 21:04:48
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.

It's a shame that Clint Hill is out for the last home game this season; he's done well for us in my opinion.


1.) 17 May 2017 19:46:13
Agree Rafbob, done well on and off the field. Will always be welcome back.



13 May 2017 14:16:34
Barry Mckay's effort has been night and day, scores the winner today and deservedly so but he needs to keep that level and be consistent.

Hopefully he's not just putting the effort in to get himself in the shop window.


1.) 13 May 2017 14:30:55
Kenny miller says Rangers need 2 players to become invincibles. Yeah if its Messi and Ronaldo. What a load of tosh comes from thst mans mouth!

2.) 13 May 2017 15:01:03
Barrie is a winger, wingers are notoriously inconsistent. If the current squad weren't so poor all over the pitch, we would not be looking to players like McKay to produce a moment of individual brilliance every game (goal vs Partick etc) . But I agree that he should be a bit more consistent overall.

Rangers desperately need a CM that will confidently take the ball and control when things aren't going our way, the fact our most creative players are Barrie and Kenny speaks volumes for this group.

3.) 13 May 2017 15:29:42
We need a lot more than two players! We have some good kids that will do ok as squad players and will come in and do a game so long as we have quality players alongside them.

If we think that the majority of the players there today are quality then our expectations have sunk to a new low.

We need two quality centre backs, not run of the mill average players. We get those and with Wilson and Bates as back up we have the central defence covered. We need to sell Hodson, he is no where near good enough and we need to bring in a tough tackling right or left back.

Midfield is non existent. Holt is ok as back up but nothing else, Halliday is a joke, there is no guarantee that Rossiter will be fit or that Krancjar will fit into the team. The jury is still out on Windass and Crooks. We need a top quality holding midfield player, that has been our problem from day one, and we could do with a Souness type central mid that can defend, play the ball forward and score goals. Up front we have Miller and McKay with question marks over everyone else and we could really do with a young fast goalscorer.

I reckon that it will be wishful thinking to believe that we will secure the services of the right quality of player with the budget that we will have unless Pedro can pull off some very clever deals in South America and Portugal!

4.) 13 May 2017 16:08:46
It tells a story when Hill gets MOTM and rightly so. I'd keep him for next year! And Miller ended up playing holding mid in second half against 10 men. WTF

5.) 13 May 2017 18:03:00
I think we are missing a turn by not giving big Clint another year. Even if he didn't play every week he is a great roll model for the younger players and would make an ideal defensive coach. Whatever happens I am happy he played for us. Good luck big man.

6.) 13 May 2017 19:13:44
You r right Sam.
I was the 1st to protest about signing him, in my mind he was done and well past it but when you hear the phrase "good pro" that doesn't do him justice. I'm full of respect for him and thank him for being the only defender worth a jersey this season

7.) 13 May 2017 21:48:06
Yea, by freeing him it means we must sign someone better and there are not a lot of quality central defenders about and even fewer if you don't have the money!
Hill has been our best player this year yet we could end up with Kiernan and Wilson being our only option!



07 May 2017 13:15:25
Ridiculous response from players who are potentially going to be shown the door!

Get the young lads on and three duds off.


1.) 07 May 2017 17:15:11
Pub team - think that's a bit harsh on the jags they are in top 6 on merit but yes a decent gers team should be putting 4/ 5 past them

Agree with Tom on our midfield if toral hyndman rossiter crooks kranjcar all injured and halliday is woeful (gives ball away for toffee) and forrester is never out the pub who else could we play in midfield?

tav in midfield is a decent shout but hodson and wallace both injured too so we are kinda struggling a bit for cover at full back as well no excuse just a fact bears

level of performance must improve tho waggy cannot keep starting drop him and what about playing miller and garner as a pair in a 4-4-2 with makay wide left



05 May 2017 21:59:19
Pedro says he wants a new core to the team, built of players he can trust and he knows understand him.

He says he needs players who have character, players who understand his commands and are capable of playing his way.

At least Pedro is honest, that's essentially what we all want. A solid spine of dependable, strong players who will play for the win.

I also like the way he interviews, some of the reporters questions are annoyingly repetitive and always fishing for a headline.

If I'm honest, I'm excited to see who he brings in to the team.


1.) 05 May 2017 23:23:43
I can't wait I was really getting fed up with players from English lower league sides. And agree Pedro does interview very well unlike warburton who ever interview sounded the same lol

2.) 06 May 2017 01:09:14
You can tell Raman Bardwaj gets on his wick 😂

3.) 06 May 2017 07:03:52

A five year old Rangers fan could have told you that. He is only stating what we all know

4.) 06 May 2017 07:54:48
Cheers bengy, 👍 it's not like I already said he's saying what we all want.

I'm just saying it's good to see him saying it to the press at an interview and not just hear fans saying it on here.

5.) 06 May 2017 09:58:47
Was watching sky earlier. Warbutton came on. Same script different movie with his interviews. Eg lazy journalism etc . i used to have soft spot 4 Forrest but so want them relegated.

6.) 06 May 2017 14:11:18
@ boredwithcelticfanposts, I thought i wanted N. Forrest relegated too until I had a think about it, if Forrest are relegated MW will most likely be sacked and we will have no chance of getting rid of the duds that MW brought in. So survival is key if we want shot of some of the dead wood!

7.) 06 May 2017 14:19:03
Raman Bardwaj is the worst😡

8.) 06 May 2017 17:52:13
Raman the tim

Daily rebel has a story on about that guy who confronted Brown. As previously thought, he is a Fanny.


1.) 04 May 2017 13:29:31
A fudd indeed but another DR slur on our good name, tarring us all. First racists and now pervs. Brilliant! Had a look at his spiel (bottom of article) that he wrote to the jurno reporting the story. The guy can hardly construct a sentence never mind rational thought. Moron!

2.) 04 May 2017 13:33:21
I stopped buying the daily rebel when the tic won the league cup. they had 13 pages on the monday after. 5 pages at the back and an 8 page pull out. Anyway my wife bought one this morning. One column of rangers and 6 pages of celtic.

3.) 04 May 2017 13:42:27
I believe that they used to be more alligned with us, but since our demotion down the leagues it's became all the rage to keep booting us in the ribs to pander to the green masses once every while. I'd never buy it again. Muck raking, sensationalist mixing rag. I'm surprised Ferguson writes for them.

4.) 04 May 2017 14:34:15
Alrus (GOOD Name) really LMAO

5.) 04 May 2017 14:56:46

Witty as ..…well worth your response.

6.) 04 May 2017 17:55:25
That is the sad thing about our society it's all well and good a bit of banter but sadly some people go to far and as you say tarnish every one the same

The question is, are you happy with the guys Pedro is looking at?

I am personally. A solid CB and decent midfielder; ticks positive boxes so far.

Cummings is a wee ned, he'd probably sign for a crate of bucky.

He can stay where he is as far as I'm concerned. There's someone better on all levels, somewhere.

I agree with blueshaun, achievements go in the history books and 10 or 11 in a row would be a long standing achievement.

I would rather see us build for the future and remain a sustainable club than run ourselves into the ground chasing a number.

We will win titles, we will be a dominant team again, but that will take time and money and at the moment we have more time than money so get your sensible hats on and support the manager and team.
