I would have thought that by now our support would realise that the Scottish Media is stacked to the gunnels with our enemies! Better we just ignore the Scottish Press.

James Stirling, without a decent transfer budget Pedro will struggle to compete with Celtic and that will not be his fault. While I don't see Celtic spending the sort of money that you mention I do believe that they will strengthen their squad and to be honest they have some of the best talent in Scotland right now. I watched their young full back in action for Scotland last night and he was excellent and they have a number of very good players. They could lose one or two in transfers down south but would secure big fees for them. Right now, with the exception of Hyndman, a loan player, we have no one of the same quality.
I suspect that King is hoping that a deal can be struck with Sports direct so that we can generate additional income and also have a Share Issue that will bring in new funds but if we are hoping that he will personally put in more funds then I think we are wasting our time.

I don't believe that Charlie Adam would fit into our style of play under Pedro and in any event I am hoping that we see a couple of gems arrive from South America, ideally one of them a tough so and so that will put Brown in his place first old firm game of next season!

His choice, Chelsea wouldn't be my destination if I was a young player. He will end up out on loan, then, unless he can compete with their superstars he will be put out on loan and eventually sold on at a profit or given a free transfer. Perhaps we can do a deal with Chelsea for one or two of their fringe players. At the end of the day we need quality players at Rangers and if Gilmour moves on then as far as I am concerned he is history. Much more important that we build a team to win titles and the sooner the better!

Rangers need £20m and a bit of good luck to have any chance of winning the SPL next season! Chances are we will need to replace a number of players including Tavernier, (who will be off to Nottingham Forrest), we need a centre back with some quality, we need to either sign Hyndman or replace him with a player of similar ability and we need two other quality players, one for holding midfield and a striker.
For the right quality they won't come cheap. If we are lucky we might recoup £5m from selling the aforementioned Tavernier, Kiernan, Halliday and a couple of others. If Crooks comes back and can do a job for us it will be a major plus as would a fit Rossiter but that is hope rather than expectation.
I just hope that Pedro can find some gems in Portugal, South America etc., that will improve us to a level that can challenge for the league.

Rather than being Critical of Aird and players like young Murdoch, maybe we should save our criticism for Warburton for not giving them an opportunity to prove themselves yet bringing in other players that haven't exactly been brilliant!

With a more aggressive manager I have to believe that we would not be so far behind Celtic, but there is little doubt that we will need quality reinforcements to challenge for the league next season, especially since our best player by some margin will be back at Bournemouth!

Lets hope that Warburton wants Kiernan and Halliday. Kiernan is not suited to Scottish Football but might do OK in the English Championship, Halliday was Warburton's blue eyed boy so hopefully he will take him to Nottingham!
Neither would be missed!

Forrester has ability, whether he has the right attitude is the question. I thin we can take it as read that Senderos will go and I would add Kiernan to the list. Perhaps Warburton will take him and Halliday to Forrest, Halliday would be at the top of my departure list!
21 Mar 2017 02:34:51
I would be happy to see Halliday leave along with Kiernan and hopefully Warburton will come in for both of them. I would like to see Hill stay on and concentrate on coaching since central defence is an area that will need consistency that has been missing for a long time.
In terms of other players, I would like to retain Tavernier, not sure about our midfield if we don't manage to replace the two loanees with players of equal status. Hyndman in particular has had a major impact.
Up front I would still like to see an out and out striker but then so would most teams!
