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.


1.) 25 Jul 2016 10:22:09
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.



09 May 2016 07:27:06
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?


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
Paulus Arajuuri to Rangers article

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.


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.



12 Jan 2016 08:37:11
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.

@Ed001 - About BeingSports. Yes I certainly am! Have you come back to Dubai then? I've had to move to the capital again for work.


{Ed001's Note - yes mate, back in Dubai. Much better than Spain!}

1.) 27 Jul 2017 21:34:24
I prefer Abu Dhabi to Dubai personally :)



24 Jul 2017 10:13:02
I know a lot of people said that the 442 set up worked, but I just don't believe that will be pedro's go to. With the amount of Midfielders he's brought in I would guess he will stick with 4-2-3-1 using either 2 wingers (Probably Candeias with Miller/ Dalcio or Waggi) close to a 4-3-3 or having 3 attack minded midfielders (Candeias/ Pena Kranj/ Dorrans? ) with Jack and Rossiter behind them. Personally i'd prefer the latter with Kranj central. personally I prefer the idea of 3 x CAM's in comparison to wingers, as I can't stand watching useless balls being bombed in to the box to the 1 player we have there. Maybe a 4-4-1-1 with a CAM sitting deep?


1.) 24 Jul 2017 13:35:51
The wingers really worry me tbh. not bn overly impressed by any of them but i know its early days

2.) 24 Jul 2017 15:20:57
Did you go to or watch the game on Saturday? Candeias was one of the best players on the park. Also put in some shift, ran himself into the ground. Jamie Walker on the other side and il be much more confident.

3.) 25 Jul 2017 08:22:55
Hey bear mode- honestly wish I could but I live and work in the UAE! I did watch it on rangers TV when it was working. Had a lot of disagrees so I assume everyone expects us to play 4-4-2 then? Having seen the feedback from most posters it looks like candeias looked very good. I just don't thin Pedro will go with 4-4-2 when he bought more midfielders and only 2wingers

{Ed001's Note - bet you are glad Bein Sports is back aren't you Teddy?}



10 Jun 2017 18:52:09
I have never ever EVER thought I'd cheer on that wee ned but OMFG I just smashed a pint and went mad after those 2 crackers!


1.) 10 Jun 2017 19:13:39
You just went mad and smashed a pint, yet you call Griffiths a ned!

{Ed039's Note - I threw a can at the telly when the keeper didn't claim that cross Mr Malloy)

2.) 10 Jun 2017 19:40:04
AS I said that sums up your supporters, on a lighter note hope you all lumped on big Brown being booked, I know I did and my bear pals also made a few bob

{Ed039's Note - sums who up? You can't be a Scotland supporter and think the keeper made a mess of things ..... my generation only remember the 99 win at Wembley and to win that today would have been immense, and for your information I celebrated the second griffiths goals like a 90th minute Edu goal in an old firm

3.) 10 Jun 2017 20:20:44
Two good goals from Griffiths and a good goal from Kane, showed his class. At the end of the day a draw was about the right result. As for Brown, I was hoping that after his stupid booking after three minutes that he would see red! I am a neutral in these games, (not born in either country), but with the exception of the last twenty minutes it was a poor game!

4.) 10 Jun 2017 20:28:28
Im a season ticket holder and i almost jumped through the roof! don't get a lot of joy as a Scotland fan but that was great although short lived

5.) 10 Jun 2017 20:44:49
Timalloy hush your gums pal. Like I said I went wild celebrating those goals. Just don't like the kid. Is that hard to grasp? Bet the odds were pish on him getting carded.

6.) 10 Jun 2017 20:56:26
If Armstrong lumps the ball towards shawlands we win the game. Typical Scotland we can't see a game out in injury time.

7.) 10 Jun 2017 21:13:59
Let's be honest his two goals were top class 🌮

8.) 10 Jun 2017 21:15:00
Timalloy didn't you say something along the lines of the following:

it has just been reported that "The Rangers International Football Club" have contacted the SPFL, Sky TV, and BT regarding the new season's fixtures, a club spokesperson has asked in consideration to all the Brazilian speaking players now at Ibrox, NOT to organise any Sunday lunchtime fixtures as the players will be attending 11 Oclock MASS.

With comments like that you'd be forgiven for thinking you were a bigoted ned and you have the cheek to say anything about us Rangers fans?

Oh and there is no such language as Brazilian. 👍

{Ed039's Note - 😂😂😂😂😂😂)

9.) 10 Jun 2017 21:23:15
Tomusa, i have to disagree with you mate. Griffiths goals were world class. Harry Kanes goal was the result of very poor defending. I repeat 2 world class free kicks from griffiths. As a gers fan i don't like him but, hats off, that was special even though the result was not as good as it could have been.

{Ed039's Note - they were quality free kicks, if Armstrong had booted the ball into the stand and Gordon had come for cross Scotland would have won, it's not picking on the players but a fact of poor quality at a vital time that cost us 3 points)

10.) 11 Jun 2017 12:55:59
Yogibear, I am not disagreeing regarding Griffith's goals. I thought they were quality, (and probably the second even more so that the first), but don't take anything away from Kane, he did just as he does in the EPL. It is easy to say that it was poor defending but Kane makes a habit of finding space week in week out against better central defenders than Scotland have at their disposal.

It might be better to question the poor goalkeeping that resulted in the first goal or Brown stupidity that saw him booked after three minutes or the stupid free kick that was given away by the England player that slipped and then decided that it made sense to pull down the player.

Let's not however take anything away from Griffith



21 May 2017 13:12:37
I had no idea waggie had a right food. Cracking pass lad.


1.) 21 May 2017 14:31:45
he is no a bad player let it be said.

pedro will bring out the good, he's likeable and has a decent pedigree, he could very well be our next walter smith.

today shows we are not a sleeping giant, we are on our way back

Getting ahead of yourself there pal lol baby steps remember

3.) 21 May 2017 17:04:33
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.


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

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.

I agree although I admit I am at a crossroads as to whether or not I just like the guy or if he is actually good for the club going forward. The way he handles the media is superb and he says all the right things. But I can’t help but think we need a proper manager in. I’ll withhold further judgment as I want to see what he can do when we have the likes of Dorrans back who I think would be hugely influential

Personally would hate to see Walter back. He did his time and was an exemplary manager and a true legend for us. And that is exactly how it should remain. He has not been coaching for the best part of a decade and we should be looking forward, not backward. The cold facts are that we need the same caliber of manager as Brenda. Someone with EPL experience, knows the SPL, its players. Has a good track record of bringing through youngsters but will also command respect from our senior players. That makes our options pretty limited. My own ideas would be to look at someone like Mike Phelan/ Paul Bento or Alan Pardew, although I think Pardew really doesn't like Scottish football. Chose Bento because he's Portuguese and unemployed, but has a decent pedigree. Mike Phelan, because you can't be that bad if you were Fergies right hand man right?

I think QPR made it quite clear they were not going to sell him and that they only wanted to farm him out to get minutes under his belt. Regardless i agree he has played very well, but i'd prefer to see if young Rossiter is up to scratch prior to buying this lad. I'm also a little gutted for Barjonas who in my opinion was good enough to start for us

I don’t think we can judge him that much seeing as the 2 managers he played under were failures. If I recall the best games he played were actually under Murty and the cup game. May be wrong though. I’d take him back right now, absolutely

How is he? Just because he played for us doesn’t make him a true blue. He’s been managing the sheep for years without us, without hibs/ without hearts. Still accomplishing nothing! Sorry but a higher caliber is needed. McCoist was a true blue nose as well, so was McCall. Look how well that served us

15 Nov 2017 18:27:51
Tommy- sorry but your point is mute. All other managers you mentioned, won the title. Mcinnes hasn’t! For me
He shouldn’t be the manager because he isn’t the caliber needed! Considering that us/ hearts and hibs all went down in recent years, it would have been criminal if Aberdeen did not finish second repeatedly. Outside of the 2 Capital clubs only Aberdeen can compete in regards to budget/ fanbase so if you were young/ Scottish and wanted to at least be challenging for something in the last 3 years, Aberdeen was the only option outside of Celtic and yet they failed to produce anything. I’m sorry but Mcinnes isn’t a winning manager and that is what we need. Bringing Sir Fergie into that comment was just daft. Not a big manager!? Also- Brenda joined Celtic because he was a boyhood fan and although I despise them, he’s worked magic so you can’t really knock him. He almost (and should have) taken Liverpool to their first title in years and was outstanding at Swansea. You clearly like Mcinnes because he’s an ex player of ours and would be “safe hands”. But I’d rather see a winning manager with a proven record come in.
