HITC reporting we are interested in Joe Garner 28yr old who plays for Preston North End. Used to be at Watford with Hodson apparently so that is where the tedious link has come from. usual ex watford noise. Wigna have scouted him and he is apparently rated at 1mill.

Want a better striker than Joe garner sake man.


2.) 25 Jul 2016 11:10:26
Joe garner would be a sensation up here. Probably out of our price range though.


3.) 25 Jul 2016 12:36:13
Whoever the gaffer signs that will do me, because he certainly knows a player.


4.) 25 Jul 2016 17:56:55
joe garner was at nottingham forest for a few seasons and didn't really do well but he did do well at preston in league 1,to be fair to him always worked hard and gets stuck in, could be worth a punt for the right money.


5.) 25 Jul 2016 18:46:47
6 goals in 41 games last season.

So a refresh on some possible targets and their sources:

Jordan Rossiter- Looks like this is picking up steam!
Danny Graham - a lot of paper talk, but lots of clubs in for him
Paulus Arajuuri - Saw this on the Glasgow Rangers FC FB page. Giant Finnish CB, 27yrs old and plays for Lech Poznan. never heard of him myself
Matthew Knox - I expect this one to be wrapped up now they are confirmed as relegated
Ben Pringle - Seems to have gone quiet?

TeddyoftheSouth

1.) 09 May 2016 11:43:26
Arajuuri would be great, had a fantastic last season for Lech.


2.) 09 May 2016 12:29:35
Does anyone know what's happening with Daniel Bentley the Southend keeper?


3.) 09 May 2016 08:13:10

So it seems that we will be having a £5 million transfer kitty for next season! According to the daily mail

1.) 20 Apr 2016 19:01:12
They're wrong. The manager's budget, as I posted here last week, will increase by £4.8m but that will include transfer fees, wages and agent fees. Four players at £10k a week and half of that's away, plus signing on money and agent's cuts and there's precious little left for transfer fees. The only other income will be the wages saved on those leaving, which could be between £30-35k a week. As I said before, there are a lot of juicy Bosmans out there and I'm certain Warbs will find the cream.


2.) 20 Apr 2016 20:07:15
Was going to say the same as wee-ecky. certain members in the press like to exagerate so the fans will then turn when 'promised' funds/ players etc aren't met.


3.) 20 Apr 2016 21:34:42
Teddy that would be a good kitty, considering what mw done with 400 grand,


4.) 23 Apr 2016 15:58:39
What did he do with £400k? That money didn't include wages, signing on fees, agents fees etc. His total playing budget right now, including staff etc, is in excess of £11m. He's only getting another £4.8m added to that to attract platers for the SPL and, hopefully, Europe. It really isn't a good kitty at all, but at least we have the right man to use it wisely. To put it into perspective, just one £2m player would account for all of that additional budget when you add on wages and other fees.


 

 

20 Apr 2016 09:43:39
Sorry Posted a link to the mail mail article about the 5mill transfer kitty and it also mentions that we are after 25yr old Barnsley captain Conor Hourihane. Truth be told I have never heard of the lad.

TeddyoftheSouth

1.) 20 Apr 2016 13:35:36
I doubt Conor will be joining Rangers. He doesn't like our club very much.


2.) 21 Apr 2016 00:58:39
Just saw his "Rangers scum" tweets. Can't see this one happening folks.

On STV today that the Aberdeen are interested in taking Cammy Bell on loan. Looks like we have rejected and probably (Although It didn't mentioned it so I am speculating) we are looking for a permanent deal.

Blueblood gers it was st johnson. Get a grip. Next season won't be as bad but there is no chance Rangers will win the league. Tsrget can only be second and that will only happen if 5 or 6 replacements come in who are decent.


4.) 21 May 2017 19:08:33
Think we may well get them


 

 

18 May 2017 07:08:36
I'm seeing a huge amount of criticism for Pedro after last night. But let's put this in to perspective and take a look at the squad that played last night. Firstly injuries: Wallace/ Kiernan/ Wilson/ hill in the back line left us 3 players who have played less that 10 professional games between them and they were playing against the 2nd most potent strike force in the league. Frankly I think they did extremely well. Particular praise to young Wilson who was brilliant, quick, strong, good with ball at feet. We all seem to forget that McKay/ Dodoo and even Toral are only 21/ 22 and we seem to be extremely quick as fans to criticize what is easily the youngest, most inexperienced Rangers team that I can remember. Also- I do not recall a single manager using 6 academy players in one game. I did. It like the result. But I did like the desire shown by windlass. The composure and control that Wilson and (most of the time) bates showed. How Beerman drove forward and had Barjonas looks a very good player, shielding the back4 and reading the game well. Take heart bears! There were plenty of good points there to see. We were missing up to 5starters for this game.

TeddyoftheSouth

1.) 18 May 2017 07:35:21
What an utter rubbish post. The team were awful last night and Bates was shocking. Had it not been for the keeper it would have been 5 and once again most of the team were posted missing. Make no mistake and average Aberdeeb side battered us and the midfield was a joke. Dodoo is an imposter who isn't up to the physical aspect of the Scottish game and McKay showed very little interest.


2.) 18 May 2017 07:49:18
Teddyofthesouth

Would also point out that Aberdeen were missing at least 3 regular first team players. Jack, Pawlett and Hayes all who are good top flight players and have had much better seasons than any of the players we had missing. Bottom line they fully deserved their victory last night and fully deserve to be second. Our team are rank rotten and the manager has so far been very poor. He talks a good game but can't deliver. Maybe he should just shut his mouth and concentrate on his own side. His selections, tactics and opinions are as embarrassing as his team's performances


3.) 18 May 2017 07:57:18
You canny moan for us to play the youth then when 4-5 get in the squad and mby no play so well tear into them. Give them a chance to get some games under there belt. We gave the most unrealistic fans in the lge, get behind the youth players and support them.


4.) 18 May 2017 08:06:20
Bengy, I'd like to say you are talking crap mate. Aberdeen had 5 shots on target, 2 of which resulted in goals, the other 3 were VERY comfortable saves. All the young boys played very well in my opinion especially considering their inexperience.


5.) 18 May 2017 08:43:46
I gen think if rossiter and krancjar stayed fit, and Barton got given a proper chance we would of got 2nd place but they didn't and we've ended up with 5 players in our squad promoted from the 20s. Weve had a rubbish season. let's just hope we can offload a few of the ones who aren't interested, and back ped in the summer, at least give him 1 window.


6.) 18 May 2017 08:55:12
Only show around

They totally bossed the midfield and fully deserved their win. The keeper made some great saves and they missed a few sitters. Bates isn't the answer he isn't very mobile and his attempt to stop Shinnie for his goal was shocking. The team are rotten and the manager has been poor. I doubt even you can argue with that?


7.) 18 May 2017 09:34:30
Bengy25 - Again you have missed the bigger picture. Bates has played 6 games for us vs opposition of a level he has never come up against and I think he has acquitted himself well for a young lad thrown in the deep end. Also - as you obviously didn't watch the game, Bates didn't try and stop him as he was marking Rooney, It was Toral and (should have been) Tavs who stopped his run, but Tav couldn't track an eclipse and Toral decided to collapse and wipe out windass.

Bengy - Stop and think for 1 second here pal. A 20year old and an 18yr old were our central defenders last night.

Also as a side note - I know people are praising Fods for his shot-stopping last night, but nobody seems to be saying anything about how he hung the two lads in front of him out to dry on numerous occasions with his terrible passing/ lack of command in the box and clear lack of communication with the pair of them.


8.) 18 May 2017 09:36:49
Was I at a different game last night? Nobody has mentioned the gutless, hiding performance from Windass. A six footer who has all the physical presence of a 3 footer, hides when the going gets tough, runs 50 yards not to make a tackle, pulled out of one and sold the first goal. OK he made one at the other end but over 90 minutes was totally inept, he is one who must be shown the door. Also can't understand why Rangers play the long ball/ long diagonal and play with 3 up front all of whom are 30 yards apart? No point in Garner winning the header if no one is running beyond. Re youngsters, they did OK, Bates is shaky at times, Wilson did OK for debut, Barjonas looks a unit, and Beerman looks like a good option at left midfield.


9.) 18 May 2017 09:44:40
They bossed the midfield correct - Reminding you our Midfield was Windass and Toral. They keeper pulled off 3 saves I expect him to make. bates is 20 years old and hasn't played first team football until now. He is better than Kiernan and Wilson and should have been playing this entire season. The team are dreadful, I refuse to pin the blame on Caixinha. You can't polish a turd, but he is doing his best with what he has. If the man wants a 4-2-3-1 formation then he is going to see what players suit that, there is genuinely no point at all going to say a 4-4-2 to suit our players then change it to a 4-2-3-1 later on.


10.) 18 May 2017 10:13:30
Teddy of the south

You don't have talk some amount of rubbish mate. Bates isn't good enough he lacks mobility and is slow. Doesn't matter how young you or how many games you have played you can't improve these aspects


11.) 18 May 2017 10:20:54
Teddy of the south

Actually I was at the game and if you care to watch their goal again you will see Shinnie goes by Bates as if he isn't there. You know just because a player is young doesn't automatically make him a good player. My opinion is that Bates isn't good enough and lacks pace and mobility. In my opinion he won't make the grade at Ibrox and isn't the type of player to move us forward. We will see what happens next season and if your right about him I will come on here and apologise to you if I'm right I expect you to do the same


12.) 18 May 2017 10:23:38
Only show around
Playing 3 in midfield was a shocking error as everyone knew how Aberdeen would set up. Also playing Miller there is ridiculous he is never a midfielder. Anyone with any sense knew that he played the wrong formation and that they would dominate in midfield.


13.) 18 May 2017 11:00:42
Brian G - Please elaborate on how what I said was rubbish? I'm not claiming to be a football expert, but I am an analyst of the sport for my job.

Bengy- No you are wrong, Shinnie Drifted past Windass, Toral came up and managed to wipe out windass in the process forcing Tav to have to sprint to get at Shinnie and Bates had to come across and close the angle (Honestly not sure it was bates either as it looks more like Wilson from the highlights) My point is that you are quick to slate him and say he isn't Rangers class after only 6 games? Your expectations are way too high mate.


 

 

07 May 2017 18:09:03
Just want to point out that for the first time in possibly over a decade we had 4 academy graduates playing in the 2nd half. Bates/ beerman/ Barjonas and McKay. Unfortunately I wasn't able to watch the game so not sure how young Jamie B did, but it seemed like a slog. But every cloud has a silver lining!

TeddyoftheSouth

1.) 07 May 2017 19:31:45
Might be wrong but is bates not on loan at us from raith rovers? Hardly product of our youth?


2.) 07 May 2017 20:52:15
Bit of both really Paul 86.He came on loan from Raith originally and for the first part of the season played for the u-20's. Was signed permanently in January so did come from the youth team but t through the ranks at Auchenhowie
but as op states he is an Academy product.


3.) 07 May 2017 20:59:49
No he signed on permanent deal


4.) 07 May 2017 21:57:14
McKay was from Kilmarnock but I get what you mean.


5.) 07 May 2017 23:32:13
6 of the 10 outfield players that finished the match were 23 or under. 3 of them (beerman, bates and barjonas) have played less than a dozen first team games between them. Dodoo hasn't much more first team experience than that either. Windass, the oldest of the six, has been a backup at best all season and hardly played. Mackay, the most experienced, is still playing in his first full season in top flight football, which everyone too readily forgets.

We had another 2 teenage potential debutants on the bench. That has to be the youngest, least experienced rangers team to ever take to the field in a league match in our history. Let that sink in for a bit, all the critics on here, before roasting them for winning a football match despite playing as poorly as we have all season!


6.) 08 May 2017 04:26:52
Thanks all for the replies and agreeing with my point. I know it's hard to take many positives from that game, but 3 points and academy prospects on show is just what we needed. How did Barjonas get on?


7.) 08 may 2017 11:18:19
spot on spart7 if most of this team could stay together for next 2-3 years, this could be a very good team that cost buttons. could be!


 

 

30 Apr 2017 07:53:07
I'm going to attempt to take some positives from the game (note that I say I'm trying! )
Beerman- the kids only 18 and has played a handful of professional games vs one of the top young English wingers in britain. He will grow and learn from that and be better for next season. Miller was again our best player. Heart, guts and a well taken goal. its a shame he scores only 1 in 3 attempts! Dodoo looked bright in the first 15mins but he isn't a winger. Get him up front. Now for the negatives. Waggie is dreadful. Hyndman was dreadful, bates should have played as Wilson and hill are too left footed. Tavs was back to his usual awful defending and to play 3 in the middle of the park with 3 strikers was a terrible call. Constantly overrun in midfield and the wingbacks were left helpless. 4-5-1 with miller sitting as an AM behind the striker (dodoo) would have been better. I don't undersrand why Toral hasn't played In the OF games. anyone know?

TeddyoftheSouth

1.) 30 Apr 2017 09:28:53
The most alarming thing for me is'nt the ability, its the phsyicallity, strength and fitness between both sides. i lost count how many times dodoo, waggy, hyndman got brushed aside


2.) 30 Apr 2017 09:29:44
You failed to mention our super subs Halliday and Gardner both hopeless causes against that lot


3.) 30 Apr 2017 09:34:47
Dodoo was hiding yesterday and clearly doesn't fancy the physical nature of the fixture. Beerman gave away a needless penalty however hopefully he will improve. Waghorn is awful and it's baffling why the manager keeps picking him.


4.) 30 Apr 2017 09:53:00
Good post TOTS, and agree with the positives listed. If Beerman has character he will emerge stronger very quickly. Dodoo is a striker who can have an occasional impact playing wide but first and foremost is a striker. MIller is immense and a leader. For the second week running very disappointed how the manager set up the team and a much tighter formation was required to play on the break. Lack of cuteness and guile but early days for this manager. Have heard rumours that Toral has spit the dummy.


5.) 30 Apr 2017 10:48:29
Only player that didn't look scared of Celtic was kenny Miller maybe also hill but as for the rest they should just have bent over.


6.) 30 Apr 2017 10:53:10
I never thought i'd say this but we better hope celtic at least draw with st johnstone next week cause its possible we could lose 3rd place.?


7.) 30 Apr 2017 14:49:20
We won't lose third place. I don't put much weight into the Celtic game as right now they are the best team in the league by far.

We need players that can perform the instructions that the manager gives, we don't have that. Too many individual mistakes that were punished.

Other teams around us don't have the same quality to punish those mistakes. We will finish third (even fourth place gets European football), as long as we get that we will have made progress.

If five years ago you offered me the Europa league, I would have taken it. Every year is progression and for those they say it isn't or want it quicker remember what happened to Leeds and Gretna (let's me sensible and not end up back in the third tier)


 

 

24 Apr 2017 08:39:07
From what I saw in the game, the boy g difference was broony. He broke up our game, intercepted pass after pass with his positioning created acres of space with a step away from Halliday/ holt etc and left Garner/ Waggie and Miller chasing shadows. I absolutely loathe him. But he makes the tic tick. I also want to add About of praise for Bates in particular. He was up against a caliber of player he would never have dealt with before and did very well. Beerman should have been off and had no chance of getting further forward when we constantly lost possession of the ball. I'd prefer to see Kieran use front than waggie or garner. Absolute donkeys the pair of them.

TeddyoftheSouth

1.) 24 Apr 2017 14:32:14
The first booking was never a booking for Beerman referee was a disgrace but because it was in favour of celtic nothing is said.

Loads of outrage about hallidays tackle but nothing about simunovics 2 horror lunges.


2.) 24 Apr 2017 15:03:18
i didn't see the line up yesterday and didn't know garner was on the pitch untill 15 - 20 mins into the game .
beerman looks a player but i don't know how he should have been off if your refering to the challenge on roberts that was halliday and yes he should have been off but simunovic's challenge on mckay i the second half was just as bad if not worse.

i agree with your assessment of garner and waggy. waggy is a major let down this season and garner is trying to be a bully on the pitch rather than a football player they can both leave and i would say that to your face waggy lmao!

What are you basing your info on here? Kyle was in outstanding form for NI the last time he actually played, barely kicked a ball for Norwich and I personally haven't followed his progress at any other club he went to. So I'd assume you are basing your "he's better or worse" remarks when he was here almost 5years ago? Because nobody changes over that kind of period of time.

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

I don't think McKay is doing much wrong. He is passed the ball very often in a position where he could make little impact and is closed down by 2players. Every team knows he is our danger man. But for me he needs to be played on the right side of midfield. The whole cut inside on your Better foot isn't working for either waggle or McKay and garner is great at placing himself in the box for a cross so I don't get why we insist on this strategy. I can't remember the last time either managed to cut inside the full back and unleash a shot in to the net

I guess it depends on how many players we will see come in over the summer. I hope he gets his chance during pre-season as I wouldn't mind seeing him and Rossiter playing together in that 4-2-3-1 formation. I think young Aiden Wilson looked very good considering he was up against Rooney, who is a big old unit with a lot of pace. I think it was in the first 5mins when he chased down a ball in the corner and I was surprised at how quick he was.

I thought it was Pawlett who signed for MK Dons? McGinn is rumored to be moving down south. Either way, We want a better team than Aberdeen, so why would we want to take most of their players? Jack is good enough for me, I've liked the kid since he came n the seen as a right back and then got moved to a DM role. The rest, we can get better
