Waghorn to Leeds according to the press. What a load of rubbish. He has hardly set the heather on fire up here.
22 Mar 2017 16:41:16
44 goals in 50 odd starts is poor return. 😂😂😂
23 Mar 2017 00:39:54
Goals scored in the scottish championship don't count 😂😂. Anything over 500k I would take for him.
23 Mar 2017 07:48:08
Aye right. goals in Scotland make £100 gazillion strikers 😉
23 Mar 2017 17:53:38
Try to replace him?
EAT MY BAWLLZ!
24 Mar 2017 12:43:11
Can only play against what's infront of him. His goals in the championship count just as much. I for one would love to see him go if the money was decent enough as i think we need better.
24 Mar 2017 17:21:53
i agree we need better but he makes for good cover i would hold on to him unless like you say the money is right. if snodgrass is 12 million as well as mcormack then we shouldn't accept less than 2.5 for him i would say 3 million or if warbs comes in then 4 million.
25 Mar 2017 13:53:20
The fact that Snodgrass is quoted as being worth #12m says it all. He is a limited football player that relies on strength; Waghorn is a decent quality football player and personally I wouldn't be unhappy if he stayed with us. He wasn't a Warburton 'ass licker' like others and could well develop under our new management team.
22 Mar 2017 11:34:23
Under 3 months til Billy Gilmour is eligible to sign a professional contract. Does anyone know how far on we are with this? or is the likelihood that he is going to leave?
22 Mar 2017 12:42:59
Chelsea have been trying their best to get the boy to move. However I reckon Caixinha, if he is impressed by the boy will be able to keep him.
22 Mar 2017 15:38:45
Looks like he is Chelsea bound unless Pedro can give him dome form of guarantee that he will at least feature in the first team next season. Possibly putting him on the bench between now and then may help. i'm not overly concerned. Seen this hype before. Remember John Fleck and Ryan Gauld. Billy has potential. that's it. If we can nurture that and sell at later date great. But Chelsea are reckoned to be offering him megabucks to sign.
22 Mar 2017 17:36:36
what megabucks are you on about and how do you know?
22 Mar 2017 21:48:55
Truebluesotrue. Mega bucks as in Premiership title winners with billionaire owner megabucks. Gers will get development fee. Maybe £100k
23 Mar 2017 07:36:10
We aren't allowed to put him on the bench until he is 16 unless it's a cup match. Burt looked good in the Scotland u19 match even though it was a poor result. Wouldn't mind seeing him step up in next term when hyndman is gone
23 Mar 2017 10:37:20
Teddy, you're spot on we should be bringing that talent through from U20s. I think BF will be good help with that as will Murty, players like Burt, Borjanos, Atikayi, Beerman, Lyon, Gilmour the list is long of good prospects in that squad need to get them in about the squad for few games if they can't cut it sell them for cash rather than releasing them for free which is stupidly what's been happening for a while.
22 Mar 2017 10:55:26
If the rumours are true there are a number of clubs interested in Waghorn. what's the thoughts of letting him go? I like Waghorn so i suppose its all down to how much we value him?
22 Mar 2017 11:15:56
I thought his contract was up at end of season must have read it wrong.
22 Mar 2017 13:11:14
Wags tav will end up at forest would not b surprised if mckay kranjaer toral loan move hyndman loan move end up there to
22 Mar 2017 13:26:18
Can't see waghorn working under warburton again. More likely to go to another championship team. Warburton played him out of position time and time again. Think by him saying "play me up front and I'll score goals" is a sly dog at warburton for him being put in a system that didn't suit him
22 Mar 2017 16:10:56
You would expect Hyndman to return to Bournemouth but it would be great if we could extend his loan period.
Toral might be sent out on loan by Arsenal again so hopefully it's to Rangers.
22 Mar 2017 18:18:58
Would love hyndman to stay at rangers next season but can't see it but I've been less than impressed with toral
22 Mar 2017 19:39:45
Cant say i'd lose any sleep if Waggy left
22 Mar 2017 19:40:24
Not fussed abt Toral tbh
22 Mar 2017 21:16:19
Waghorn hates Loafman and vice versa. Waghorn took Bartons side in the battle of Auchenhowie. Waghorn never got a new deal whereas Loafs favourites, Tav and Keirnan did.
22 Mar 2017 21:59:57
Wouldn't be bothered if toral didn't come back. would like hyndman, but doubt and I would be a bit disappointed if waghorn left, I think he will have a big part to play in rangers season.
23 Mar 2017 00:33:31
I don't get why people keep saying we should keep loaning guys next season again. The loan market is decent for a short term fix if players are out injured or whatever. But we will never build a good side with long term ambition if we develop other clubs young talent and then see them go off at the end of every season. No doubt total and hyndman have improved us.
But jus look over the dark side, there transfer policy of buying promising young players, developing them and selling them on for profit a couple of years down the line is the only way to go. We will Never make any money just paying loan players wages and then they leave and go back to there club.
23 Mar 2017 15:10:08
listen guys toral still has a lot to prove but hyndman is a player and waggy is a pretty good striker when played in his position.
24 Mar 2017 11:50:32
Currently the loan market is one that we will use due to the situation we are in financially. Think that a club the size of ours should be able to get players who are on rhetorically very fringes at their clubs such as Winks at Spurs who we were linked with!
He ended up staying at Spurs and has started to get some first team games AND he looks a top player! We should bring in 2-3 loans of this calibre, Would love to invest in players and keep them at Ibrox but if Pedro has 5-6m to spend then bring 4 signings that cost OR could use money to attract players on free's with a decent wage on offer.
Just hope we have our net cast wide and bring in decent players mid 20's we do need a strong commanding CH like Amo! Been hearing people say we should bring in 2 BUT again finance! We need to spread the budget over the squad a CH a CDM and a Striker or a AML are a must Hill has another season and 2-3 quality loans.
Need to get rid of some players and promote some youth. We must challenge next year we do have a good team the players subconsciously knew Warbs system wasn't working and they couldn't nail it hence going a goal down and the lads inside knew the game prob couldn't be won.
BTW how much do you think Pedro will have in the transfer kitty Bears?
22 Mar 2017 10:52:14
I see King will finally be meeting with Caixinha to discuss the squad and the summer transfer window budget etc. But who's running the recruitment side of things? Will this be the '3rd man's' job?
21 Mar 2017 22:33:54
So, anything new in regards to a DoF?
22 Mar 2017 11:14:16
I suspect after Ross Wilson, Paul Mitchell, Stuart Webber and Alex McLeish have all rejected the role, they will be trying to conduct any further business away from the media to save more embarrassment!
If it was my decision, I would be trying to get John Park in as DoF. Yes, he worked for them and Hibs, but the players he has brought through have been very good.
22 Mar 2017 11:35:08
Paul Mitchell has a contract til the summer
22 Mar 2017 15:35:42
i only knew two of them that where offered it as mcleish wasnt offered it just said no in an interview! and also i didn't think we had made a approach to mitchell as yet
22 Mar 2017 15:54:01
Park is an arrogant person who built a reputation on the backs of other scouts who he then promptly dumped. He took all the credit for the work of others and if he ever comes to Rangers I for one will have watched my last game after almost 60 years.
21 Mar 2017 11:44:06
Barry Ferguson to be announced as 3rd member of management team tomorrow. I for one would say welcome back Barry, we should never have let you go. Great captain and player.
21 Mar 2017 12:27:46
If confirmed- this is quite an interesting development. Pedro usually spends max 18 months at a club - Barry would shadow Pedro and in essence, be a she in for our next manager. thoughts?
21 Mar 2017 12:45:41
Only if he shows the qualities required. We don't want or need another McCoist scenario.
21 mar 2017 13:53:20
i am over the moon if that is true as he is a proper rangers man and will motivate theplayers no end.
having said that i don't think he would be a shoe in for our next manager as going from clyde to a no.3 to a rangers manager is very very big step but i know he will do this job well.
21 Mar 2017 14:34:32
I've met Barry a few times and found him to be both ignorant and arrogant. I think he would the wrong decision as assistant. The whole Paul le Guen debacle should be considered as lessons learned. Don't get me wrong, as a player I loved the guy but I am really unsure about this one. I would be the first to stand and say I was wrong and if he is our new assistant I hope to be proven wrong.
21 mar 2017 14:56:38
if it does come to pass and barry ferguson is the chosen candidate, for the no.3 position, then i'm also delighted and wish a true rangers legend all the best! welcome back baz! i do myself, think the thinking behind this appointment, will be to groom barry under caixinha, with the undoubted view, of him becoming the next glasgow rangers manager, a few years down the line!
but of course i totally take on board that baz must prove himself, while working under pedro caixinha! certain fans on here say, ferguson hasn't done enough as a coach to get this position, whereas i totally disagree with them and let me explain why!
at this moment in time, barry ferguson is being brought in more from his experience at knowing the mentality of rangers as opposed to being the finished article, as a coach! he'll be helping pedro, baptista and malta, gauging the culture of rangers and scottish football in general, first and foremost! helping them settling in to life at glasgow rangers, if you like!
although baz has a wee bit of coaching experience at both blackpool and clyde, he still has a bit to learn, before he'll be considered, as glasgow rangers manager material! but he will learn under caixinha and if he does then without question, he could well be the next rangers manager!
he possesses a lot of the qualities just now, that's needed to be a glasgow rangers manager! if it is baz confirmed as our new no.3, then all i can say is "welcome home barry"! back where you belong! the guys a winner and rangers to the core!
21 Mar 2017 15:13:28
@thebluevoice - if true, This appointment doesn't fill me with confidence. He has shown nothing ability wise to be a decent coach and it doesn't show any ambition giving someone a job just because he's a ' Rangers Man '.
@barcabbear - Rangers manager in 18 months? Really? Let's hope he picks a lot up in those 18 months.
21 Mar 2017 15:29:28
I really don't think Ferguson is the way to go. Are we forgetting McCoist was a rangers legend and learned under Walter for a few years and it didn't make him a great manager. It worries me that people think he would be the next manager after Caixinha. Would far prefer someone like Neil McCann who is a far more articulate analyser of the game than ferguson and still knows what the club is about.
21 Mar 2017 15:41:57
To everyone that is against Barry returning incase it turns into another Coisty situation, I didn't hear anyone complaining when he was no2 to Walter Smith with us and Scotland, in fact I never heard a negative story about Ally when he was number 2. So if it is Barry (personally I hope it is) let's wish him the best and get on with it, if he can help nurture any of our midfielder's into being half the player he was he'll have earned his money in my book
21 Mar 2017 15:10:38
big Ped you are way off the mark. I have also met the guy. Yes he is a confident guy with an ego but its one he has earned. 5 league titles european final club captain. Come on now that's exactly the guy we need. he's nit there to be a friend he's there to lead
21 Mar 2017 15:34:08
Big Ped, I've known Barry Ferguson since he was about eight and I've never found him to be either arrogant or ignorant. He's one of the good guys in fact, and he's even stopped in the street to talk to my wife and myself in passing. You will indeed be proved wrong about him if this actually happens, because not only does his heart and soul belong to Rangers, he will learn from PC and add that knowledge to his love for Rangers. Potentially a great move.
21 Mar 2017 17:30:31
Yip meet baz loads of time great guy to speak to if it is baz i wish him all the best
21 Mar 2017 18:10:03
Big ped totally agree re Ferguson. I had the displeasure of meeting him in person at 2005 Rangers Halloween bash in Hilton hotel. he's a total ned! I respectfully asked him to sign an autograph for my mrs at the time. It wasnt a hard name to spell (Barbara) he tried to spell it out 3 times b4 thrusting the pen and paper back into ma hand and said ah **** it! Not only thick but totally ignorant. I spent a 100 quid on a ticket to be treated like that by a gers captain was a disgrace. Give me alex rae or neil mccann b4 ferguson. Wonderful player but has no class whatesoever. Doubt he will end up an asset to pedro neither!
21 Mar 2017 19:27:32
Really hope Barry gets the gig as i know he'd put his all into it and if it didn't wrk it wouldn't b for the want of trying. as for the PLG saga, the only thing Barry was guilty of was caring to much as players at that time will tell you. PLG was a disaster end of. Please come home Barry and instill some of those battling qualities you had into our club
21 Mar 2017 19:36:08
Superbly written wee-ecky! I'm with you all the way regarding barry ferguson mate! I've also met baz at numerous supporters functions and always found him extremely approachable and pleasant to speak to! I actually sponsored barry ferguson's home clyde shirt for his 1st full year at clyde!
I paid 80 quid to become his home shirt sponsor! I had always tried to sponsor his rangers home shirt when he was at ibrox but he was sponsored by a company from harthill that i know rather well, ie. curtis insulation! They kept renewing their sponsorship with baz every season, so i couldn't become his shirt sponsor, while he was at rangers!
In fact i even lost out to curtis insulation yet again, when he moved to blackburn rovers! Baz was a big favourite of mine and was one helluva captain and midfielder, for the famous glasgow rangers! The greatest of his generation, BAR NONE! I really do hope that baz is, coming home!
21 Mar 2017 21:53:47
Happy to see him back even happier he's not the number 2, nothing against him just think this is perfect for him he is going to get to learn the trade and gain the experience to hopefully in 4 or 5 years take the reigns, think coming in as assistant manager would have been wrong choice for him and rangers
21 Mar 2017 22:28:02
Barry has denied even speaking to anyone about the role, according to Keech of the DR, who claims to have had a denial from the man himself.
22 Mar 2017 10:00:28
I would be surprised if this happens, the one thing Pedro has shown is he likes to do his research, and if he does some research on BF then he will find he was one of the reasons PLG failed. As club captain he didn't support PLG and he doesn't appear to be the type that learns from their mistakes, therefore it's unlikely he would fully support Pedro. I think he would be better giving the role to Murty or Alex Rae. Murty did well to turn that team around in 4-5 weeks, and Alex Rae seems to be a quite thoughtful coach that is keen to learn.
22 mar 2017 10:31:46
people forget that barry ferguson always put the club he adores before himself everytime! remember the injections he took weekly into his pelvis? just one of many things he risked his health for, which was all for glasgow rangers! barry ferguson is a winner! we can't ever have enough of these guys at our club! plain and simple!
22 Mar 2017 10:31:43
Well said wee ecky. Ped was way off the mark. Baz shoukd be regarded as club legend. He won more trophies than any other rangers captain.
22 Mar 2017 10:32:31
Thebluevoice, i don't think any candidate for our no.3 role, will be chosen and announced until early next week mate! Although i do hope you're right, because the quicker he's chosen the better! Every bear has they're own opinion on who they want it to be! For me its barry ferguson all the way! But of course if it happens to be john (bomber) brown or alex rae or neil mccann, then i will also get behind them, and give them my full backing, totally!
22 Mar 2017 15:36:00
people you are comparing barry to ally isn't fair on either of them barry for me hasn't learned from the best and mccoist for me is hated by some idiotic rangers fans for taking his wages!
also mccoist came in and won htree league titles first time of asking while being everything to rangers; their p. r guy their scout their spokesman all at the time rangers where a their lowest and the guy got nothing but stick for it.
yes his tactics where terrible but so where the players he was stuck with.
people like you the blue voice are like a dog with a bone, u just don't know when to let go.
also mccoist was manager not a no.3, barry will hardly have anything to do with the technical training side and more to do with motivating the players and settling pedro into life in the gold fish bowl
22 Mar 2017 15:46:20
Thebluevoice, for the record mate, richard gough won more trophies as rangers captain, than barry ferguson did mate!
22 Mar 2017 16:52:31
I once puked on Barry Ferguson's shoes in the old Destiny nightclub in town. He was ok about it and asked if i was alright. Not sure whether that means he will be our No.3 in the dug-out though?
21 Mar 2017 08:12:48
I've seen a few places this morning that we are apparently signing Darren Fletcher. anyone heard this or no anymore about this?
21 Mar 2017 11:34:33
rumours like that make me sigh too!
21 Mar 2017 11:39:28
sincerely hope not - one of the most over rated players i've ever seen and also a self confessed follower of them.
21 Mar 2017 13:53:09
Darren played for us and them as a lad. He did grow up a Celtic fan tho I doubt it would make a jot of difference in his decision making process. Doubt he will sign for us though.
21 mar 2017 13:54:22
don't want players past their sell by date.
21 Mar 2017 15:35:54
Camoo, he didn't 'play' for us, he was invited a few times for coaching sessions and development games aged about 13 but when he made it quite plain he was going to Manchester United we dropped our interest.
20 Mar 2017 18:46:25
Anyone any info on the DoF position or when they expect to appoint one?
21 Mar 2017 04:52:07
Supposedly its out off bomber brown, ferguson and miller, going by the papers.
21 Mar 2017 04:53:02
Sorry i read tht wrong lol tht was for 1st team coach. I duno who is dof, seen mcleish has knocked it bk though.
21 Mar 2017 10:54:57
Maybe Ferguson for coach and Brown for DOF that sounds good to me especially if bomber brings his boots
21 Mar 2017 11:32:09
Rangers never spoke to Eck about DoF role but when asked the question on bbc he said he felt he still had something to give in management.
21 Mar 2017 13:55:57
yes, but the dark side will spin it so that we got another knock back and that's the media i am talking about when referring to the dark side this time, lmao.
20 Mar 2017 09:59:32
I believe the interviews for our scottish / local no. 3 position, to work under pedro caixinha starts today! I'm also led to believe, that barry ferguson has his interview, for the position, today!
The other 2 candidates that are shortlisted to be interviewed, this week are seemingly, neil mccann and alex rae! We should find out who's the chosen candidate, by the end of this week!
I truly think barry ferguson will get the job! What do other bears out there think? what have you heard regarding this? Should be interesting!
20 Mar 2017 10:07:51
@SC11 - I would have preferred Murty to have been given it. I honestly don't see what the rest bring to the club in a coaching capacity - one of the criteria that Pedro is looking for.
20 Mar 2017 12:24:32
UJ a would love to see murty involved in some way as a do believe he does deserve to be in the first team set up and would be happy to see any of the of the 3 candidates at ibrox but time will tell but things are looking good onwards and upwards
20 Mar 2017 12:44:52
Could it be that Murty will be with the first team squad and the guys being interviewed takeover Murty's old position?
20 Mar 2017 13:32:10
Murty deserves to be included in the first team coaching set up.
20 Mar 2017 14:40:05
I don't think Murty wants to be involved with the first team as i think he sees himself a nurturer of young talent and mabey with his increased rep at the club now he can push the issue to get any young guys that look like they have what it takes to be included in the 1st yeam squad.
20 Mar 2017 14:40:37
Imo Neil McCann would be an excellent choice, the guy know what he's on about had a similar job at dunfermline and only left due to bigger money deal on skysports, I do think if rangers came calling it would turn his head, just my opinion tho
20 Mar 2017 15:03:05
Tommyj79 a agree with u a think murty has been offered to stay and work with first team but has decided he's happy to continue his work with youth squad and that's prob why we are looking at other options was good to see murty out with the squad on saturday aswel and the fans reception for him was first class
20 Mar 2017 17:24:40
Graeme murty would have been a very good shout for the position UnionJack, but he wants to continue his great work coaching the under 20's! The rangers directors also want him to continue in this very important role, in what will hopefully feed our first team with very good, well coached and developed, young players! Much the same situation with kenny miller who's already doing a bit of coaching at MP, but he wants to continue playing with doing his wee bit of coaching which he's currently doing and enjoying! Kenny also would have been a good choice IMHO!
20 Mar 2017 17:40:09
I'd be happy with any one of the 3 of them, although I like Murty I want him to work with the youth it's an important job and one which I'm confident now Murty is right guy for .
20 Mar 2017 17:58:35
I'd be amazed if neil mccann got job considering he said live on sky sports that in his opinion it was a mistake giving caixinha the job.
20 Mar 2017 18:02:48
Barry for me
20 Mar 2017 18:21:47
Neil McCann has been scathing in his criticism of rangers during the past 5 years. Albeit his job means he should be impartial he has taken it to new levels. I would gladly take Barry or Alec Rae. Both have the desire and dig to support Pedro. I know its not just about being Rangers men but if that's the case why is Pedro so set in getting someone like this onboard? Answer because it's necessary. O will support 100% the decision
21 Mar 2017 10:49:07
Whilst I agree Murty did a great job in the interim role, Pedro is the manager now and specifically stated he wants an experienced coach with extensive local knowledge.
Murtys never been a coach before aside from
U20s so he wouldn't fit the role. If supercoop's shortlist is right I think Alex Rae should get it; he has good playing experience both sides of the border, has good coaching experience from his time at St Mirren and as a bonus is a dyed in the wool bluenose.
The blend of passion and experience from Pedro and Rae at murray park would be just what we need!
21 Mar 2017 11:04:56
Union Jack, the man has already said this appointment doesn't necessarily have to be involved in the coaching.
21 Mar 2017 11:22:24
What about John (bomber) brown anyone? He's a proper diehard rangers fan with coaching experience! This rangers legend has red, white and blue, running through his veins! He absolutely adores glasgow rangers!
20 Mar 2017 09:54:45
Hyndman returning to Bournmouth at end of season. Bad news for us but not totally unexpected. Young man with great ability he wants to play at highest level. Sign of the times that Bournmouth dwarf Rangers and The other mob. Pedro i'm sure will get quality replacement in.
20 Mar 2017 10:27:17
It is nothing to do with Bournemouth dwarfing the Old Firm. It's the money and better potential to go to higher places.
20 Mar 2017 11:24:41
Yeah and I don't think we have much chance with toral as he signed an extension to his arsenal contract before coming to us
20 Mar 2017 12:13:13
Crowd at Bournemouth at weekend was under 12000.
If that's dwarfing rangers or celtic then so be it.
20 Mar 2017 14:45:48
If he wasn't getting a game with Bournemouth before he came to us what make him get a game when he gets back, there maybe every chance we could loan him again .
20 Mar 2017 20:37:19
Think there is a good chance we could loan him for the season next season. eddie Howe has got to be happy with what he is doing just now so as he is still a young guy I think there is a very good chance they will loan him again for one more full Season would benefit him loads then after that he would be better placed to go play in the EPL
21 Mar 2017 10:51:01
Sorry fellow bears. Club size isn't about crowd size any longer. You're right bournemouth have done diddly squat in their entire history and average 15000 at home games. But its the TV revenue that's the killer. Bit like celtic getting all that dosh simply for being humiliated in champions league. Its not right and hopefully the TV dosh will disappear but it won't anytime soon. Watford also dwarf us and swansea. Sorry guys.
21 Mar 2017 13:57:37
why can't sky or bt see that we would be a better investment than that of the championship we pull in bigger crowds and have much much bigger support and i'm including hearts hibs, the sheep and both dundee sides in this.
as if bournemouth can get more viewers than us. then we would be as well as giving up, but i don't believe for a second that that is the case. it's just they don't want us to get any better and would love us to go tits up.
