we are being linked with Juan carlos paredes. Watford rb/ rwb.


1.) 16 Jan 2017 12:47:18
Why? We already have Tav and Hudson

2.) 16 Jan 2017 13:18:45
bit of a stupid question mate. Better quality.

3.) 16 Jan 2017 13:45:54
tavs proved in the scottish cup final and last old firm game that if someone is prepared to run at him whole game his bottle crashes hodson i can't fault for effort but isn't the answer if were moving forward RB is definetely an area we nd to strengthen as is our whole defence tbh

4.) 16 Jan 2017 14:12:40
We need a holding midfield player / defensive midfield more than we need a right back unless young Rossiter is ready to return!



10 Jan 2017 14:48:31
Bates has been signed on a 18month deal.


1.) 10 Jan 2017 15:43:21
Ah, the old master

2.) 10 Jan 2017 15:56:25
Nice one gram. Took me a wee second!

3.) 10 Jan 2017 15:56:35
David bates why?

4.) 10 Jan 2017 17:02:28
Because he's still very Young and warburton sees him everyday at Murray park, so he must see something in the boy

5.) 10 Jan 2017 17:08:53
Yes, but like the others, will he ever be given a chance to show what he can do in the first team?

6.) 10 Jan 2017 17:20:10
Looks to be a big unit and has a bit of presence about him. David Weir must also rate the boy, would like to see him get some game time in the second half of the season.

7.) 10 Jan 2017 18:17:48
He sees the rest of the defence everyday in training. I'd love to know what he sees in them

8.) 10 Jan 2017 18:26:17
Ive saw him twice albeit at a lesser level but he looked solid! Under the right coaching he could go on to be a decent big player, we can't go wrong with him be on minimal wage so we've nothing to lose



15 Nov 2016 08:11:20
Rangers are apparently interested in signing Daryl Horgan and Andy Boyle from Dundalk, both are out of contract at the end of the year and are bringing in a lot of interest from English Championship clubs.


1.) 15 Nov 2016 08:48:18
I have to confess I haven't seen Dundalk play but I'm glad we are looking at people that aren't playing in English lower leagues.
We def need to cast our net wider.

2.) 15 Nov 2016 11:59:40
is boyle a centre back and has he got any pace?

3.) 15 Nov 2016 12:15:52
James, Boyle is a centreback, however I have no idea if he has any pace.

4.) 15 Nov 2016 12:42:45
cheers onlyshow I couldn't find any clips of him and honestly have no idea if these guys are any good.
hopefully they can come in and add something to the team.

5.) 16 Nov 2016 07:26:53
looks the part, do we have the money to sign him? i hope so but think not, unless we get rid of waggy?

rome was not built in a day and we certainly won't be, anyword on the redbull investment yet bears?

6.) 16 Nov 2016 16:43:16
**** red bull, we don't want them renaming our club red bull rangers, would be nice to have the money but its definitely no worth it in the long run,

7.) 17 Nov 2016 11:26:41
id take red bull rqangers all day we have changed our name not that long ago so i'm not attached to "the rangers" as long as we are rangers then ill be happy, red bull or the, before it doesn't bother me but i'd go wi the money.



13 Oct 2016 10:12:30
Atlantic league still on apparently. Rangers and Celtic rumoured to be the only 2 Scottish clubs that will be able to join if it does happen.


1.) 13 Oct 2016 15:41:41
I don't think this will happen but it is way more likely than English league accepting us.

2.) 13 Oct 2016 16:17:52
Can this happen? Would UEFA allow it? Would Rangers and Celtic still play domestic games?
I can see something happening with European football, like darts have the PDC and the BDO. It's all gona end messsy I think.

3.) 13 Oct 2016 17:43:08
Messy or not it's necessary that something changes.

4.) 13 Oct 2016 19:22:54
They've said it would involve those clubs leaving their domestic leagues. Should have happened years ago. **** Scottish football.

5.) 13 Oct 2016 18:54:04
Seems reasonable. No other Scottish Clubs have the 'fan appeal' worldwide. A bit unfortunate for Hearts perhaps but can't see too many people that really matter being too upset!

6.) 13 Oct 2016 21:59:15
If a group of teams outwith the usual suspects that are continually in Quarters and Semi of CL, if they got together and pushed this Atlantic Lge through and told UEFA to do one then I think UEFA would have to go with it. Again I'm talking about a lot of teams over Europe big clubs that have had to settle for the scraps! I think this could be done so that teams could still play in their domestic lges. The big say 10 teams who are always getting to the final stages NEED the others teams like Ajax Dortmund Nice Athens etc these teams an us are being denied the chance to compete and setting up this lge that would consist of 15-20 top teams could be done and what will UEFA do stop us from entering competitions we can't win! We could make more money doing this AND I think UEFA will go along or else the CL would be crap, its gotten pretty boring already the key is to be able to still represent domestically.

7.) 14 Oct 2016 10:47:29
Its Fifa that would need to ratify it. Uefa are already making changes to the Chamoions league purely to benefit the big boys. If access to the Champions league is to be closed off to the smaller nations then they have no need of Uefa. Think about the TV revenue from demand for games from this league in Scotland, Holland, Belgium, Norway, Sweden possibly Portugal. If the Man Utds and Barcas don't want us playing against them, then I have no problem going to Ibrox every other week to watch Ajax, PSV, Anderlecht, Rosenborg or Porto if Portugal get involved.

8.) 14 Oct 2016 15:13:55
I agree with most of what is being said by remembering Scotland only has 2 big teams.
Look at La Liga. so Real Madrid, Barcelona are always there or there abouts in the CL, so unlike the SPL these teams would stay in the domestic league leaving other big Spanish teams like Valencia, Athletico, Villarreal etc stuck where the old firm is!
Do those 'nearly' teams want to play in those Atlantic league? Where does it all stop?
I'm sorry but I don't think you can play football or make decisions based on fan base.

9.) 14 Oct 2016 17:09:36
Stop talking mince mate.

10.) 14 Oct 2016 19:46:14
Plenty of mince getting spoken on this subject. with all due respect the PSV's, Ajax's and Anderlecht's of this world are not the teams they were 30 years ago. and i wouldn't pay money to go and watch Rosenberg in a 100 years. Porto maybe.

call me old fashioned but i'd rather watch us play Aberdeen, Hibs, Hearts in rip-roaring end to end battles. along with Old Firm games. What the old firm need to do is negotiate their own TV Deal. its the only way they'll have the finance to compete in Europe. at the minute we receive a pittance when you consider the viewers we get on Sky / BT to watch us.

11.) 14 Oct 2016 20:04:28
What about teams organizing a new tournament! I know I keep going on about bringing the CUP Winners Cup back but I'm sure the money involved if UEFA were behind it would be laughable compared to Champions Lge! So instead of a Lge that's played over a season could clubs not organize a competition that's played either on a different day or time than CL or the EL or would we even have to, if UEFA are not going to give clubs the opportunity to raise finances then could this be possible?
If UEFA want clubs to settle down a bit or buy time then they should get CWC back ( prob another lge format as it makes sense financially) and make it lucrative to the clubs involved the disparities between the CL and EL is way too much!

12.) 14 Oct 2016 22:40:24
If it's going to be an Atlantic league then let's go for it. Let the fat cats go and have their private party, but guarantee people will get fed up watching the overly paid prima donas ( don't blame them ). Money is getting too important in this world and taking the sport out of sport.

13.) 15 Oct 2016 11:57:56
Fancy explaining your name mate? Is it 'hung one 88' or 'hun gone 88'? Either way, it ain't clever or funny, first one you're portraying yourself as sectarian, second one as a bigot. Which one is it? Certainly isn't 'banter' unless it's purely over exuberance on your behalf of course.

14.) 15 Oct 2016 16:23:14
Think its a case of over compensation for having a small asset.

15.) 18 Oct 2016 14:34:44
spart7 - love it haha.

16.) 18 Oct 2016 14:07:34
I may be wrong but I am sure that there is a UEFA directive in place since the 50's that states that no club can play league football in a country other than there own (Swansea, Cardiff etc in the English league prior to this coming in to place) .

This all came out in the 90s when we tried to join the English League.

Presumably this Atlantic thing would require a seismic shift in UEFA rules if indeed they have the appetite for it.

Personally I agree with the guy who says he would rather play against Aberdeen etc. Big European nights are special and if they became the norm then it would detract from these occasions. I know that there are financial aspects to this but that is a matter for the footballing bodies to work out.

Having said that, I also agree with the guy who said **** Scottish football.

17.) 18 Oct 2016 20:25:42
We all need to perform better otherwise it would just be even more embarrassing. Haha onwards and upwards though.

18.) 23 Oct 2016 11:49:20
From our own perspective we should be less worried about an Atlantic League at present and more worried about having a team that can compete with Celtic and Hearts. This Budge lady at Hearts is head and shoulders above what we have at Rangers. She is involved on a day to day basis whereas King is a bit like David Murray, full of talk and no action.

Our best player at present is an ageing striker, we have lost our most skilful player for the season, no doubt more messing about on the training ground, the young Liverpool lad, Rossiter of whom I had high hopes is consistently struggling through injury as are the two lads from Accrington Stanley and we don't have a captain with the qualities needed to lead the team on the Park.

Before we start worrying about Europe we have serious issues to resolve on the playing field.

It is a catch 22, we need quality to compete to get into Europe and we need to be in Europe to get quality. We will need at least two quality players in January, and we won't secure them from the biscuit tin and we should hopefully already have identified two or three that we can acquire in the summer.

Players like Waghorn should be sold if we can secure the correct fee since I don't see him scoring the goals needed in the SPL! Of course a hat trick from him and a couple of goals from elsewhere in the team agains our enemies tomorrow and I might change my view.

19.) 23 Oct 2016 12:45:46
Unless the quality of player improves significantly we won't be playing in Europe for some time so perhaps an Atlantic League is our best option.

400k worth of Rangers shares have been bought. Rumoured to be Brian Kennedy.


1.) 20 Sep 2016 19:32:45
where did you hear this, can't see him buying shares, any source for this rumour.

2.) 20 Sep 2016 20:00:26
This is coming from got the battle fever on. They are reporting that 1.5mil shares have been bought.

3.) 20 Sep 2016 20:36:29
brian kennedy lads.

4.) 20 Sep 2016 20:51:22
Won't make a great deal of difference, doesn't put him in the top eight shareholders.

5.) 20 Sep 2016 21:14:28
Yes very true wee-ecky however the reason why he is buying shares is that King can't get his cash out of Africa. They aren't allowing him to take it out the country. All rumour mind you.

6.) 21 Sep 2016 10:44:07
sorry lads but what would be so bad about brian kennedy buying shares?

7.) 21 Sep 2016 14:40:33
I thought King's money not in SA, that was why they didn't like him.

8.) 22 Sep 2016 11:44:34
I said wee while ago aswell when I saw Kennedy sold up in the Sharks, "wonder if he will invest in rangers " if it is true that is lol.

9.) 28 Sep 2016 20:41:16
I see another 1m shares in Rangers (3 separate transactions) purchased today. Anyone any idea who is buying.

16 Jan 2017 09:54:05
I know our 3 centrebacks aren't the greatest, and Hill isn't getting any younger. Michael Mancienne, his contract is out in the summer, we could get him for free, he is quick and quite a good defender, I reckon this is one player we really should be going for.


1.) 16 Jan 2017 12:02:32
Couldn't afford him, he gets 20k a week basic, probably wants more plus signing on fee etc not to mention agents fee. None starter

2.) 16 Jan 2017 12:26:21
I can't find a thing on his wage. From what I know of, Nottingham Forest have a wage bill of around £26mil, that is for all staff (196 in total) So I don't see one player earning close to a 26th of the total wage budget, considering there is still another 195 people to pay.



31 Dec 2016 15:12:58
I reckon we should go for david davis of Birmingham City. 5k a week at birmingham. Would be a better player than haliday. Hiday is lightweight, davis is quite a big lad.




12 Dec 2016 10:29:01
Does anyone think we should try and lure Liam Cooper away from Leeds? young lad at 25, he is 3rd choice Centreback. If he did come to us he'd no doubt be first choice. The wages could be a stumbling block but with Barton gone already and both Hill and Senderos going in the summer surely we could afford to push the boat out a bit for Cooper? Next question is what Centreback would you all bring in during the summer/ winter transfer window. We are obviously set to lose 2 centre backs so we will need to source another one.


1.) 12 Dec 2016 10:37:04
John souttar.

2.) 12 Dec 2016 11:03:04
Soutar would fit into our system but maybe not dominant or aggressive enough for fans. He would be a warburton type however don't see that happening.

3.) 12 Dec 2016 11:47:02
I like Souttar, but he has 2 and a half years left on his contract. he is a starting 11 player for Hearts too, on top of that we are one of their rivals for Second spot, they won't want to sell him to us for anything less than £1mil. Cooper on the other hand would be free.

4.) 12 Dec 2016 12:03:13
The boy cooper looks ok but I'd be more inclined to try and get someone who is over 6 ft tall. Think cooper is a bit short for central defence.

5.) 12 Dec 2016 12:46:28
Wot about Kyle Bartley?

6.) 12 Dec 2016 13:37:35
Jaws bartley is leeds main man. He won't be coming to us any time soon.

7.) 12 Dec 2016 15:47:43
What about the lads Mariappa and Espinosa who we tried to get in the summer?

Neither of them play regularly for Watford or Middlesbrough. Could get them on loan for a year or so. When we finish second we'll have a shot at European football.

If we beat Hibs in the final, think at least one of them would've come.

8.) 12 Dec 2016 16:21:07
Christoph berra! Bartley is hopeless.

9.) 12 Dec 2016 17:57:59
Bartley is at a top 6 club. Berra is at Ipswich.

10.) 12 Dec 2016 22:17:27
And your point is!? Mahrez was player of year last year but is in bottom half of prem!? Berra is one of best defenders in championship and has much more to his game than kyle bartley.

11.) 13 Dec 2016 10:32:07
id like bartley aswell.



05 Dec 2016 09:33:30
Ryan fraser putting in a great shift for Bournemouth yesterday. Matt Phillips continuing his form again too. Strachan no doubt will pick Forrest again. Sad times for our international team.


1.) 05 Dec 2016 11:21:19
Phillips, Fraser, Arfield and G. Boyd are all epl regular's, where are they in Strachan's mind?

2.) 05 Dec 2016 13:10:17
Airfield plays for Canada.

3.) 05 Dec 2016 13:16:21
Only because he waited long enough for Scotland to call hime up and we never! Instead we were calling up Mcginn.

4.) 05 Dec 2016 22:49:14
tom cairney should be in the squad 100 percent.



30 Nov 2016 11:56:56
Rather surprised Neilson has decided to go to MKDons. Completely wrong decision in my opinion. However hopefully that will really dishearten his players tonight.


1.) 30 Nov 2016 12:41:26
naw mate no the wrong decision as they have a much bigger budget than hearts and a 40,000 seater stadium with a owner that only wants the best for them and he has money for nielson.
if he does well down there for 2 years he will be head hunted again.
and he is a good manager.

2.) 30 Nov 2016 14:38:23
Bigger stadium must be super useful in league 1. average attendance of 8.4k, less than hearts. and as far as I'm aware hearts are close to the exact same wage budget as MKdons.

3.) 30 Nov 2016 14:42:52
he's taken hearts as far as they can go, the only way is down.

4.) 30 Nov 2016 16:03:54
By making this move Neilson will put himself in the sights of bigger clubs if he makes a success of it. The club has some money for him to operate at a higher level in the transfer market. Because he is a former Rangers 'S' form I wish him well now that he is no longer manager of a rival club.

Scottie, what do you mean by youth aren't getting a chance? All these boys were on loan to lesser level clubs and couldn't make an impact so why on earth would we give them a chance at Rangers?

Gnw12 what's that got to do with anything? We know we have no money to spend on big transfer fees. We do however have money for wages. Berahino is a possible transfer.

Well if you go on recent news, he isn't even on 20k a week, it's actually less than that. he was recently offered another deal by West brom, believed to be 20k a week, an improvement from what he is currently on. we could easily afford him, it's up to him if he wants to come.

You need to remember, we are in a horrid financial position. No one wants to invest, we have no way of getting out of these borderline illegal contracts. Warburton for the money he has isn't doing that bad, 2nd in the league is the aim and that is where we are.

He's not exactly match fit either which doesn't help. put him on loan for 6 months at a decent level, hopefully he can make it into their first team and push on from their, Davie Weir rates Crooks highly from what I remember.

Millions to challenge Celtic, are you having a laugh? Why do Celtic fans seem to think their team is outstanding? Minus that of Dembele you have a Championship team. If Rangers spent their wage budget wisely we could have 3 or 4 Championship players in for the summer.
