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.

Gutted. Not much else to be said, I am out in Cyprus for a while and I was excited at the prospect of watching Rangers play limassol! 😡

Done and dusted, still right behind the team and looking forward to (hoping for) a massively improved league season.

All you can do is move on with it and hope for improvement, Pedro is on thin ice and needs to keep his opinions to himself and focus on doing what he says he wants.


1.) 05 Jul 2017 21:25:19
We must do everything we can to better this team. Yes we can bring Players in BUT one thing I think we should do is give Beerman his chance at LB! This would make the decision about having Wallace as Captain clear. Even if Pedro sticks with Wallace he should still change the Captain and prob give it to Alves. Like I said we must do everything we can and I know changing the Captain wouldn't make a huge difference in terms of the way we play but I do think that it would have a positive effect. Wallace just doesn't seem to posses the type of character required and I also think he would take it on the chin and not react in a way that could effect the Squad.

2.) 05 Jul 2017 21:51:33
Good post Rafbob, and sorry you won't see the team in Cyprus. I say time to move on now and get behind the manager and team. His card has been marked and he has taken full back responsibility and apologised. As disappointing as it is we need to get over it.

3.) 05 Jul 2017 22:50:23
Totally disagree with this. Beerman is no where near ready for first team football imo. And same for bates. We're underestimating our team and the pressure involved to play for us. It takes a special kind of player to be regarded as a good player for us and they Jus don't have it. Yet anyway.

4.) 06 Jul 2017 00:07:12
Bates will never be good enough. he's rank rotten.

5.) 06 Jul 2017 01:48:23
Please explain why Bates is rank rotten?

6.) 06 Jul 2017 03:19:53
Beerman might not be ready but Wallace has shown that he is out of his depth in the top league and he is never a captain. His overlapping runs are seldom seen and defensively he is poor. He needs to be replaced as does Tavernier. Two good quality fullbacks that can tackle are needed and quick!

7.) 06 Jul 2017 09:06:19
TOM, you're one of the guys that Dave King was referring to when he explained it is only the supporters he listens to.

Nobody cares what you good time fans think - get behind our team or find another that can meet your fairytale expectations

8.) 06 Jul 2017 14:41:04
Alves would be the obvious choice if we were to appoint a new captain loads of experience at club and international level.
Ryan Jack would be another contender or Kenny Miller.

9.) 06 Jul 2017 14:49:47
If we are going to give Beerman his chance at LB we should be looking to give Hodson or McCrorie a starting slot at RB.

10.) 06 Jul 2017 14:50:27
Beerman must be given his chance and a decent one at that! Want to see him getting a good run.
Also want to see us moving Players on, even if its by way of loans which in some cases I think would be the best way to go. Players like Dodoo and poss Holt imo would be better off getting a loan move as I think they may actually become valuable assets. With the guys we have brought in I can't see them getting much game time. Pedro does seem to like Holt but with Pena Nico Dorrans and Windass in front of him maybe best for him to get matches elswhere as for Dodoo he's well down pecking order with Miller Herrera Morelos ahead of him and prob Wags if he stays.
We need to move on Wags tho and also a few others like Windass Crooks Forrester O'halloran and Kiernan and hopefully the likes of Barjonas and Hardie will be utilised.
I know we have spent a few bob but once we move on certain Players which be it Transfers or loans could be a total of 8-9 Players we should really think about trying to bring in a Quality LW. Dalcio may turn out to be a great Player but we will definitely need someone who can create chances! A player with ability to take players on, but we will either have to shell out anything between 4-6m or get a Player on a free and pay top wages.
Think after the Euro result we are all worried BUT it could just be a matter of TIME. Out of this team my biggest concerns are RB and LW.
Fods. Gk
Tavs. Rb
Alves. Ch
Cardoso. Ch
Beerman. Lb
Jack/ Rossiter. Cdm
Candieas. Rw
Dorrans. Cm
Pena. Cm
Dalcio. Lw
Herrera/ Morelos or Miller. St

Arsenal are preparing a £125m bid for Monaco forward Kylian Mbappe, 18, in an attempt to beat Real Madrid to his signature. (Sunday Mirror)

Are they all wired to a Mars bar? That is a ridiculous amount for any footballer.


1.) 02 Jul 2017 19:08:20
Too much money, if fifa weren't as corrupt they would make rules that were fair to all. English football gets tv deal for £5bn massive yet with their rate of spending they still go in debt. The country was brought to its knees in 2008 with the crash the Premiership had debt then of £12bn the country was borrowing £120bn how can they be allowed to make up do much of the national debt when people lose jobs go to food banks when in truth these debts are not theirs. The champions league as the highest rated tournament in Europe should pay the most and all other tournaments should not exceed it. In our country we have seen our game crumble clubs in financial ruin yet we have borrowed nothing compared to the English teams. Wee pissy teams with hardly any support can buy players the old firm can only dream of it absolutely stinks. Now England will get 4 automatic places in the champions league yet when in there they do nothing. Their national teams suffering because for years the best players have been foreign. I know there u20's won their respective world cup but where do they players go from there when demand and cash stops them getting first team football. Something must be done



30 Jun 2017 18:19:50
Last night was a win, harder than it should have been but still a win.

The team looked good, for a team who only had three weeks training and bonding with new additions.

Niko was outstanding and Jack and Cardoso look like good signings.

The team will only get better with time and as long as we get a goal on Tuesday we should be alright.

Niederkorn aren't exactly the cream of the crop and if you read the general nonsense in the tabloids you might believe that they gave us a game.

The fact is that we couldn't kill the game off, a common issue last season; however this time we have a couple of solid players in Cardoso and Jack who can defend and cut out danger so we didn't end up with a draw.

I can't see us getting done by that lot in the second leg and progression only gives us more time to get the team working as required.

Hold out on this and watch the team grow because they will look much better in my opinion.


1.) 30 Jun 2017 19:26:55
That's a very good post

everyone hasn't too stop being negative already one game and a win a clean sheet with Alves still too come into the team. I am slightly worried that he could tire toward the middle of November after playing in the confederations cup he will be looking forward too the winter break.

I think Pena in the middle of the park will make a difference he's seems too be solid but also creative which we lacked when Niko went off who I must say shows what he can do can't wait till he if proper match fit.

I thought tav played well I don't understand the criticism being aimed at him.

When this team hasn't got used to playing g together and everyone is in the team and fit we will have a good team with good options.

All in all was a great first half too relaxed In The second but in sure Ped will sort that out I'm expecting/ hoping for 2-0 in Luxembourg.

Just keep being positive negativity has never helped anyone.

2.) 30 Jun 2017 19:58:27
Why is it if you give a honest review of a bad performance you get branded negative and told to be more positive? Behave person don't see us telling use to be more negative? Stop telling folk how to be

3.) 30 Jun 2017 20:15:12
Agree, although we only scored the one we did look good in periods and for a team that's had less time to bond than glue I'm taking the positives from last night, with pena, Herrera and alves still to come into the side and morelos only getting 15/ 20 mins I think we will be fine, Jesus the way some of the press I have read u would think we were beaten 1:0 by some team called Lincoln Red Imps or something. Once the boys have gelled and bonded teams like Progres will be put to bed with ease, I thought Ryan Jack looked excellent btw and could prove to be our best and most important capture of the summer

4.) 30 Jun 2017 20:30:18
For our first competitive game I'd take last night's performance. We closed down quickly and attacked quickly. let's just support the team. Papers bring us down enough without our own so called fans doing it.



26 Jun 2017 22:02:15
Rangers star Andy Halliday has been linked with a move to Azerbaijan.

I'm in the middle with that story, Halliday is a bluenose, through and through who has done his best and for that I respect him; his best, however is not good enough to improve our team and I feel that he won't return if he goes out on loan.

I'd wish him all the best for whatever move.


1.) 27 Jun 2017 00:18:21
Lets not be kidded, he would never have got near a jersey pre admin. Very average player that only endeared himself to the support as he was a bluenose and badge kisser.

2.) 27 Jun 2017 07:50:25
bit harsh gosman, let me say i completely agree not rangers class, but to be fair not only a bluenose and badge kisser but also gave his all and willing to dig in unlike some others playing alongside him.

3.) 27 Jun 2017 08:21:34
Not real rangers standard, but gave his all and done a job in championship.

At least he's willing to move on. hopefully others will follow suit.



21 Jun 2017 17:18:35
The new signings have been great but the merchandise news today is by far the best story related with our club, that I have read for a wee while now.


1.) 21 Jun 2017 17:31:33
Totally agree Rafbob paulineblue72 and ABHABH1 I suppose you will have something negative to say about it .

2.) 21 Jun 2017 17:38:45
Yeah but sadly my 3 kids will all want home and away and i'll treat myself to a home strip omg i'm now poor :) .

He knows where the goal is and always played well when fit.

He himself acknowledged that his comments were ill advised and regrets making them.

I would have him back at Ibrox. 👍
