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.

Interim Rangers boss Graeme Murty has been receiving assistance but has not named the person who has been helping him.

We need a manager not a puppet!

Is this a trial for the new manager because it's not working and whoever is giving the advice is worse than Warburton.


1.) 25 Feb 2017 09:50:57
receiving Assistance? Did they phone him and tell him to put Garner on with less than 2 minutes to go? Murty stands on the side line like a tailors dummy he is clueless, and it's not his fault as our board threw him in at the deep end and seem happy to watch him drown, the guy is way out of his depth. To watch that last night you would think Murty still keeps in touch with Warburton, maybe it's him that's giving him advice! Because it's still the same pshhh

2.) 25 Feb 2017 09:59:23
I have no sympathy for Murty but people need to remember he was brought in to replicate what Warburton was doing with the first team in the U20s. He has as much clue as Warburton did. All you have to do is listen to him after games. I bet his assistance is from Warburton and that's why it's being kept quiet.

3.) 25 Feb 2017 10:14:45
Who ever is helping him with the coaching is a joke! He starts with Kiernan and the guy loses us the game, his tactics are on a par with Warburton! We are up against two rookie centre backs that Garner might actually have outmuscled and he brings him on with 18 seconds to go. Murray should be allowed to go back to what he does best and we should bring in a quality manager and find him a archest of $1m - $20m. As was said on BT Sport last night if the £18m has been spent on Ground improvements most fans would prefer that it had been spent on players. If it was spent on players then Warburton should be shot!

4.) 25 Feb 2017 10:28:21
How wax Kiernan to blame? It was that clown Wilson last night as it was against Dundee. Two lazy tackles in two games resulted in two penalties. Yet again he lost his man on the build up to the second goal last night then threw a lazy leg out to deflect the ball to their striker. If Kiernan tackles the guy he gives away a penalty. No one saw how the lad could hook in that shot so big Kiernan would've got slaughtered if he put in a challenge which resulted in another penalty.

5.) 25 Feb 2017 10:51:48
I agree think all the money should of been spent on players at first get the team on the park back to were it should be then more income will follow so then we start to put money into Murray park and ibrox exc for me it's been done the ring way around.



24 Feb 2017 21:48:42
I had hoped Murty would at the very least implement formation changes and at a push swap out the poor players for the ones we never see.

I now see that the guy is incapable of this and we desperately need a premiership management team in to give these lads their confidence back!

I live to far to go to games when I want, I am envious of you season ticket holders but I don't envy the supporters who made that journey tonight!

Not good enough for championship nevermind second in the premiership.


1.) 24 Feb 2017 22:02:50
What's worst he is just like McDowall before him - he doesn't want to be there.

Just cheap option for board?

2.) 24 Feb 2017 22:12:07
I would respect him more if he left to be honest.

The guy doesn't want to be there because he knows it's above his skills and will end his management career before it has begun!



24 Feb 2017 19:35:59
What does Halliday have to do to be dropped?


1.) 24 Feb 2017 19:47:16
Every player on the bench should start

2.) 24 Feb 2017 20:30:58
rafbob, and Mckay

3.) 24 Feb 2017 20:35:45
I thought Halliday has done much better playing in a more forward role. he is no holding midfielder

4.) 24 Feb 2017 20:36:45
Most of them to be brutally honest! It's a joke watching this team tonight!

5.) 24 Feb 2017 20:36:51
Blo. y typical that was coming - total domination yet 1-0 Inverness. Not fit to wear jersey

McDowell all over again . season written off top 6 must be board's target now!

Bet Leicester City will get a permanent manager before we get a temporary one!

Time to look at Board it's not performing.



12 Feb 2017 01:12:18
Dust seems to be settling a little.

Say what you like about Dave King but he has done what he should have with management, has finally released a statement and has addressed some pertinent questions that have been frequently asked.

With regard to the 30million "warchest":

He says 18million has been spent so far, I can see that to be fair.

He goes on to say that he expects to spend over the 30million he originally promised to get us competitive in Europe etc.

It's just my opinion and I know how many feel about the man, however he has kept us going (be that by encouraging investment or dipping into his own) and seems to be sticking with a plan.

With regard to Warburton:

He explained the situation quite clearly, (as you will have read) that the management tried to jump ship, situation changed for them last minute and our board gave them the push.

With that being the case, I appreciate the boards actions and I am hopeful of a fresh start with better results and happier players who can perform consistently!

Hopefully we can kick on with a good result today 👍.


1.) 12 Feb 2017 02:44:46
100 percent bang on mate my feelinhs aswell



10 Feb 2017 22:48:12
I was watching a film.

What's going on? BBC stating the all three have resigned?

I know people claiming it was false on the Rangers twitter account but it's a story on the BBC now?


1.) 10 Feb 2017 22:57:19
Just read the club statement.

Looks like Warburton has made a lot of people's minds up for them, hopefully the team stick together and we can find a decent replacement!

2.) 10 Feb 2017 23:13:54
Seems straightforward to me.
They asked to be released, the board accepted. Warbs and co then decide they are not wanting to be released (other options fell through perhaps? )

Effectively Warburton doesn't know what he wanted. No surprise there.

Well I for one am delighted the clueless one has gone and taken Weir with him.

Big DW was a great servant as a player but he has brought nothing to the club as MW's assistant picking up wages for SFA.

Onwards and upwards.

3.) 10 Feb 2017 23:23:20
If story from the board is true that Nottingham forest had approached mw why did we not want compensation mw was still under contract to us.

4.) 10 Feb 2017 23:38:39
Mw and co wanted out and tried to bargain with the board to waive compensation so they could get out quickly. They knew their time was up and tried the easy way out. Tells you everything you need to know about mw and co. Good riddance!

5.) 10 Feb 2017 23:51:44

I can only read into the fact the board had decided that the management team were going at end of season so if we had sacked them WE would have had to pay them compensation but when their agent tried to broker a deal they must have thought they had won a watch. glad the board stuck to their side of the deal on your way MW DW

6.) 10 Feb 2017 23:53:45

Exactly just wonder what the Warburton apologists on here think about the situation. They are very quiet

7.) 11 Feb 2017 02:44:36
In some respects I have sympathy for Warburton, (although what he and his two associates attempted to do by all accounts this week and broker an exit without compensation from Rangers so they could move to Forrest is totally lacking in integrity), since he was given little support by King and even less support by Weir who failed miserably to either improve the defence or instal a Rangers mentality in the team.

8.) 11 Feb 2017 10:24:31
We are only 9 to 10 days away from an answer. Lol

Warburton could be a great manager but his stubbornness to stay with the same tactics is ruining his reputation.

Not a comment about Fergusons abilities but Halliday is a die hard Rangers fan, we don't need a die hard; we need a good manager who understands Rangers.

Employ an interim and get Murty back with the youth because he was doing good with them.

Yes, I honestly think we would have and probably by the same margin.

I thought the exact same thing, "if we weren't playing against 10 defenders then we'd destroy some teams! ".

Unfortunately I was very wrong to think that, I don't even see how the team can regress so far in such a short space of time?

We looked a fit, hungry team last season with a point to prove and now we look like second rate journey men who struggle with the length of a pitch.
