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.

I hope we learn from this!

I have had morning rolls that haven't been cut open as easily as our defence.




07 Jan 2017 17:22:21
Did you see that Aberdeen signed that Turkish lad, yerda sellsavon?


1.) 07 Jan 2017 17:43:47
He should make them some dough in the future he's meant to have a lot ot customers

2.) 07 Jan 2017 18:45:12
Good player, could be a bit soft for up here, although delightful right foot.



03 Jan 2017 22:16:57
Injured Rangers striker Joe Garner could be sidelined for up to three months after dislocating his shoulder during the Old Firm derby defeat at Ibrox on Hogmanay.

First day back in the office today and I've only just seen this news?

That's not ideal, I know he wasn't really contributing with bags of goals but he worked hard.


1.) 03 Jan 2017 23:51:33
Now that garner is injured it's time for dodoo to stake a claim I feel if the boy got a decent 5-6 games he could do well imo.

2.) 04 Jan 2017 00:57:21
Its got to be a run for dodoo if its waghorn il blow up!

3.) 04 Jan 2017 08:07:49
Dodoo is the biggest Donald Trumpbag I've ever seen, he's even worse than mckay he actually runs away from tackles.

4.) 04 Jan 2017 08:32:10
Cee, I think it is a bit rough to make these comments about McKay. He has ability and has shown it in games. He just needs to be more consistent. As for Dodoo we will only know what potential he has if he is given a run of games. Right now that is only one of our problems. At a time when Celtic are going out and spending £2.5m on a 21 year old from a Russian Club, we are looking at loan deals and don't appear capable of looking for players outside of Scotland and the lower English Leagues. The more things change at Ibrox, the more they stay the same unfortunately!
The parallels with Warburton and LeGuen are very similar in many respects!

5.) 04 Jan 2017 12:22:28
Hes 19 the bhoy tom not 21.

6.) 04 Jan 2017 12:28:21
I think barrie mckay is our best player by far, and the only player in our squad who would command a decent fee but at the end of the day he is a fairy and shys out of so many tackles.

7.) 04 Jan 2017 15:36:54
Cee I hear what you say and agree which Is why I 'tongue in cheek' suggested a few weeks back that he should be given some coaching by Willie Johnston.
Unfortunately the vast majority of our players are poor in the tackle and don't seem to want to get involved with most of the tackling by our midfield and defence pathetic at best!
Perhaps this is down to the philosophy of our manager and his assistant but if it is then it certainly won't work in the Scottish game!



31 Dec 2016 15:56:11
Disappointed with that, a great start and then (I think) against the run of play their goal drops a few heads.

Miller was unlucky to hit the post when he did, as were they.

Forresters contribution was literally nothing, much to Dodoo and our frustration and he needs to be told.

Foderingham was at fault for nothing, Tav was again showing he is no defender and I'm getting bored of his random shots here and there.

Mckay played well but looked a little light from time to time in his challenges.

I was a bit confused with the choice to take Windass off instead of Halliday or Holt?

The difference on the day for me was their two signings and a few bad decisions from Warburton.

They were better for 60-65mins and that's Just my opinion on the game.

That's our games done for 2016 and the team looks far from clicking, here's to a fresh start and dramatic improvements in the new year.

Have a good one guys and be safe.


1.) 31 Dec 2016 16:04:48
Mackay was class today not lightweight at all. they were just a bit more pace class up front.

2.) 31 Dec 2016 16:23:48
He was class but when challenging Roberts he was light.

I already said that's just my opinion.

3.) 31 Dec 2016 16:57:05
I thought that McKay was the best player on the park. Sadly we had nothing down the other flank and Halliday is a waste of a jersey. A lot of positives from the game but we need more quality in midfield.

4.) 31 Dec 2016 17:05:33
Get the boy moult from Motherwell knows where the net is.



30 Dec 2016 23:14:38
Reading a few happy posts with regard to the game tomorrow!

I get it, I have watched the same nonsense games and I have seen no real tactical prowess from Warburton but at Ibrox we still have a chance.

I think the fact that we are at home and have a point to prove will push us to the win.

With a big 12th man in the crowd, positive atmosphere and a team that actually turns up we can win any game.

Enjoy and be safe if you are going.

👍 it feels good to be positive.


1.) 31 Dec 2016 02:45:41
So Bears the minute silence before the game. Who here thinks that it ain't just going to be a few that will display disgusting behaviour but a few thousand showing disrespect in front of the TV cameras for the world to witness. Hope I'm wrong but can see them acting up.

2.) 31 Dec 2016 09:41:34
Idiots are present in every support, your own included andy, but to say a few thousand is a bit much. A handful at most may cause bother. Its the law of averages. there's a match to be played and all you can think about (hope for) is Celtic fans not remaining silent, so as to take the focus away from any potential pumping. Get a life, decent folk from any walk of life will respect the silence. can't vouch for 1 or 2 halfwits. Should be an applause i feel, to drown out the halfwittery.

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.}

Apparently they would offer him a contract if we don't extend his.

That was what I read on the BBC sport site, take it with a pinch of salt.

Singing is fine, I think it is what is being sung is the problem.

The embarrassing thing is seeing a giant flag that says Rangers ICF?

As for the game, we have been caught out twice now with pace, Wilson was is lucky not to clear the first and couldn't keep up with Burke for the second.

I have to ignore what you are saying because you clearly haven't read any of my other posts.

Everyone wants investment, in my original post I am talking about investment (wages and bills are investing in people and infrastructure)

I can't say I have ever read anything from yourself, you seem well informed though and I look forward to seeing your opinion on other posts.

He's meant to be going on loan but he's in the park and they can't catch him. 👍

More people would be laughing if we were pissing money that we don't have up the wall.

I definitely disagree that we are a joke. We are second in our first season back and we are halfway through the season.

This ridiculous arrogance is what nearly cost us our club in the first place.

If there is money to spend on players, it will be. Hopefully King prioritises paying wages, bills and running the club on and off the pitch before buying players we shouldn't.
