Jonathan johansan latest name mentioned for the coaching role according to bbc.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Mar 2017 11:26:45
@broxi17 - probably because his wife has a column in the Sunday Mail today and has hinted he would be a good fit and shouldn't be excluded because he's a foreign ex Gers player?

26 Mar 2017 13:13:45
tbh it's starting to look like almost all the candidates are a who's who of Rangers TV. Almost all the shortlist are RTV co-commentators.

26 Mar 2017 13:31:58
Will be interesting to see who gets this role. Agree with those that it's as much about club integration as it is about heavy coaching. On that basis I think one of the past players from outwith Glasgow and central belt who successfully integrated themselves into the culture of the club and different environment has something to be said for IMO. We don't need born and bred rangers diehard.

26 Mar 2017 14:15:29
Does anybody think nacho novo would be a good choice for the no. 3 position? I know he has been mentioned on the scale, of submitting his CV, to rangers and caixinha!

26 Mar 2017 15:49:59
Nacho eh no .

26 Mar 2017 15:56:57
Duff and Phelps I've heard

26 Mar 2017 18:44:29
When Pedro explains the type of character he wants, he's basically describing Barry Ferguson to me.

26 Mar 2017 09:05:21
Barry Ferguson isn't getting the number 3 role

Agree2 Disagree8

26 Mar 2017 09:54:15
Where did you get this information from the Beano

26 Mar 2017 12:53:04
Thank fleck for that . Dodged a bullet

26 Mar 2017 13:41:42
Tell you what biglach62, come and slate me when he doesn't get it

26 Mar 2017 13:32:06
A few good candidates for the rangers no.3 job and for the record gmartin8. i really do think barry ferguson will get the no.3 job, IMO! Just because caixinha is being thorough and interviewing a good few for the position, doesn't mean he's overlooking baz!

26 Mar 2017 13:35:20
Exactly how many ex gers players are going to be interviewed during this process. Its getting embarrassing ince afaun. Its not a managers role its No. 3 how hard can it be?

27 Mar 2017 12:13:43
barry is a true blue and a motivator which is what pedro wants

25 Mar 2017 10:10:06
This is a serious question:

Ferguson, Brown and Rae; i have nothing to recommend them for coaching roles and the majority of posts here seem to think being an ex-Rangers man is not real recommendation. What role would any of these three guys fill that would justify a big wage?

I know they are leaders but I would rather see a modern leader emerge.

Agree8 Disagree3

25 Mar 2017 11:51:32
Barry Ferguson was a tremendous footballer, was an inspirational leader and has Rangers at heart.

So, if he can help improve players by passing on advise and techniques that improved him as a player, get the respect of the squad like he did from his teammates when he was a player and has the best interests of our club at heart then there's no better candidate IMO.

25 Mar 2017 13:11:06
Barry has the potential to be that. The others don't for me.

25 Mar 2017 13:15:33
They won't be on a big wage so don't get yourself worried about that.

The manager wants him so that should be enough. He obviously sees a role there.

25 Mar 2017 16:00:53
we need to remember that brown was in charge of pretty succesful youth team at rangers its also been proved he has an eye for a player as it was him who scouted carlos cuellar i would put him top of my list if that's the rd we are going down

25 Mar 2017 17:35:09
I didn't think the role for a local guy was so much about coaching as a link with the players and knowledge of the league.

Pedro has his own coaching team so it is more about integration than coaching skills.

25 Mar 2017 18:15:09
I would never in my life slag or dismiss any of these guys who are pure Rangers men and had the privilege to play for the team that they and we love 💙

25 Mar 2017 19:02:32
Cuellar was spotted when we played against him in the eufa cup the season Walter smith came back.

25 Mar 2017 20:28:26
they still sent brown to scout him its a well known fact

26 Mar 2017 13:01:35
Colshygers is spot on! John bomber brown did scout carlos cuellar and after he first came to rangers attention, bomber continually watched and advised our club to sign him!

26 Mar 2017 13:02:05
Bears. I think the appointment of Brown Rae or Ferguson will be fantastic! WHO tho would be the best option? For me I would have Brown with Rae a very close 2nd. I really like Ferguson but think the others have more experience AND both would command instant respect and would be good at being able to put an arm around a players shoulder when needed, but also would be able to let a player know when they need to pull their finger out and recognise who they are playing for!

For me I think Fergie is still too young and players may not look or listen ti him in the same way. BUT I would not be disappointed if he did get it, I think Rae will get it due to his past roles but I love Brown and if he doesn't get it. I would like to see him at Ibrox in some capacity I think Brown could get an extra few percent from the players from just being around them.

26 Mar 2017 15:54:25
Are you trying to tell us Alex Rae (uncapped, played 34 games for Rangers, won one league title) would command more respect in the dressing room than Barry Ferguson (45 caps, almost 300 games for Rangers, multiple honours, MBE)?

27 Mar 2017 16:05:29
John Brown is an embarrassment and shouldn't even be allowed in ibrox. Let him stand on the stairs.

{Ed033's Note - and let him eat cake 😋

25 Mar 2017 10:05:24
Did i read it correct that Nacho and Kevin Thomson are in the frame as well or was i drinking too much last nite? 😂🍺

Agree8 Disagree2

25 Mar 2017 12:16:07
Drank too much. Always been a fan of Thompson though I have to say.

25 Mar 2017 13:50:19
I thought i read somewhere that both of them put in their CVs.

25 Mar 2017 16:58:32
I'm lead to believe that kevin thomson is getting an interview for the no.3 position on monday! I've heard nacho novo has actually applied for the position, but i don't know if the wee man is getting an interview or not!

25 Mar 2017 18:46:48
Cheers Coop, i thought i was going daft 😂

25 Mar 2017 18:53:53
Bears. Just like any Manager, Pedro probably has a list of players in his pocket that he would like to see in his squad. If he's realistic these players are lads who are relatively unknown and unless he found himself in a big job with a huge budget he will have been doing his homework looking at players. I do not think anyone from SPFL will be on this list.

Outfit loans and free transfers I would like to see him givin the money to sign 3-4 players in the 2m bracket and strengthen the core of the squad for our money i'd like to see 1 CH an Attacking left wingers a CDM and a finisher.

26 Mar 2017 12:23:45
Andy 1872,, would like to see Jamie Walker for the right hand side with Liam Lindsay incoming at centre half if there was anybody from SPFL.

Think your probably right the manager will no doubt have to look far and wide to find decent players on the cheap.

26 Mar 2017 13:26:27
If its that easy I might chuck my cv in there too and get an interview, not being funny here but kevin thompson come on. As for novo he scored a few goals but not really a legend like ferguson or bomber. I don't know who it will be but they better be here and ready for the semi final against that east end mob.

26 Mar 2017 16:56:12
Agreed on Lindsay, Ogbear. Would like to see us steal McGinn too from hibs can't can't see Celtic2 doing business. Think we should be looking at someone like BF for the number 3 to keep players like Gilmour and Burt working hard and willing to stay.

24 Mar 2017 23:32:25
Do we think the DOF role is essential? With Kings recent statement that an appointment is not imminent could there be second thoughts regarding it? It may be a wage that we can ill afford at the moment. Also I think Alex Rae would have made the biggest impression on Pedro for the coaching role. Wouldn't be a bad shout in my opinion.

Agree6 Disagree0

25 Mar 2017 07:25:40
he said it was not imminent but would be sooner rather than later its still the plan to have a DOF

25 mar 2017 11:09:07
perhaps waiting for the right man who is not free at the moment

25 Mar 2017 13:03:24
How much does a DOF get a week in wages? Maybe better to put money towards a player OR could we not use it towards keeping Gilmour.

24 Mar 2017 11:58:19
King states he will invest more money in the club but as to how much is up to the manager - DOF appointment not imminent - as per Talksport interview with Jim white

Agree4 Disagree5

25 Mar 2017 00:24:43
so if Pedro wants 20m that's what he will get afcw

25 Mar 2017 06:37:40
for arguments sake let's take what you're saying as true smodge rather than hyperbolised rubbish, would he have signed if he didn't have gaurentees over a budget he felt was appropriate?

25 Mar 2017 13:07:32
Smudge re-read my post about what Dave King told Jim White live on Talksport yesterday then re-read your post - make up your own mind.

26 Mar 2017 13:08:35
How much? My guess is King will provide £6 million with the money raised from any departures to be reinvested so wages from Sendaros, Hyndman, Toral to be used for 3 loans or free transfers!

Would sell Waghorn for anything over 700k and a big if over McKay only for a decent fee. would like to keep him but if we were offered good money we could attain at least 2 good prospects or 1 proved playmaker.

McKay could go on to be a top top player but its all a gamble that includes the buying team though a team in PL or even Championship would see 5-6 or even 7m as a gamble they could afford to lose but that kind of money even 5m would have to be thought about but could turn into a 10-15m player easily but again hindsight eh.

24 Mar 2017 10:04:36
Reading suggestions that we should go and nick Ryan Jack off the sheep. If we are interested in him we should make a move. He would be interested I'm sure. Saying this as I've known the family for years. His grandfather was a fanatical bear from Maryhill. He himself was a Rangers supporter as a youngster. I have watched his development from an early age, and I can tell you Rangers is in his blood.

Agree8 Disagree7

24 Mar 2017 10:08:39
Decent enough player but should be aiming at least a little higher if we are to try close the gap next season.

24 Mar 2017 10:17:29
Who cares if rangers is in his blood, if he's good enough to enhance the team then that's all that matters!

24 Mar 2017 11:16:49
Ronnie bang on mate we've got one on the books the now Rangers in his blood, Goven Born, Mr one of us and a badge kisser and he's Rank Rotten ( if your good enough that'll do)

24 Mar 2017 11:33:11
i think he would be a fantastic signing. Not only would it be a good bit of business with him being out of contract it would significantly weaken Aberdeen which is always nice.

This is the signings we used to make, good Scottish players who know the club and league inside out.

Similarly, Paterson from hearts on a free would also be good business.

24 Mar 2017 17:14:41
Rangers might be in his blood, but not in his feet, I'm afraid. Not good enough, sorry.

24 mar 2017 17:15:52
i wouldn't say halliday is rank rotten!
he has been played in a defensive role .

he is an attacking player and has a good eye for a pass but can't do that playing defensively

24 Mar 2017 18:28:56
Haliday may have a good eye for a pass but his feet can't do what his eyes can see. His passing is shocking

24 Mar 2017 20:07:48
Been following rangers for 55 years trust me he's Rank Rotten excuses being made for him about having a good eye you can say that about anybody that can't pass a ball to were they meant to put it. Lol

24 Mar 2017 22:19:25
The guy is highly thought of at Aberdeen but is looking for a move. Whilst it shouldn't matter who any player supports I think it can make a difference. All being equal I would take one of our own. I'm not sure how good he is but the sheep don't want to lose him especially to us. Worth a punt on a free.

24 Mar 2017 22:48:00
Im not a fan of Halliday and he wouldn't b in my strongest 11 at this moment in time but to say he's rank rotten is quite harsh when you think of players gone by IE, capucho, sebo, ostenstaad, bernard to name a few. at least when he's rotten its not for the want of trying unlike some of the imposters iv mentioned

25 Mar 2017 00:30:40
Jls tbh mate i disagree. The players you mention were terrible but halliday? Number of goals we have lost because of to be frank his total lack of basic schoolboy level awareness is alarming. His error for 2nd v hearts was shocking. If i recall correctly we nearly lost a goal from almost same situation in next game. It will be interesting to see how he performs under new manager though as i do think the squad as a whole under performed under warbutton this season. Compare halliday in hearts game to semi last yr and it was like 2 different players.

25 Mar 2017 04:02:22
Andy halliday has been terrible this season truth be told. Although I think Warburton's style of play has held him back. Doesn't help when the boys playing out of position either. I'd definitely take a punt on the boy Jack. If were going to get him on a free what's there to lose? He's been a key player for the sheep for a number of years now and still only 25 with a lot of development in front of him.

25 Mar 2017 07:24:21
cant believe were still discussing andy halliday his future is over at rangers and rightly so, this year he's proved his limit is the scottish championship or lower spl at best any other rangers player who had put in the performances he had this season would have been booed off the park a long time ago, if things were different with barton kranjcar and rossiter halliday wouldn't have saw much pitch time this season midfield and CB will be pedros main areas to fill nxt season losing hyndman is a loss and possibly losing toral could be a loss too as i thought our new style really suited him in hamilton game

25 Mar 2017 08:43:56
I'm not disagreeing with you bored, but i think some fans go on as if he's the worse player to ever pull on the jersey. we need to remember he was released from Bradford for a reason and he's on pennys at us. the point i'm making about the players i mentioned is that they were on a fortune and all played at a decent level so theoretically should have been a lot better. p.s, got to agree his hearts mistake was a howler 😂

25 Mar 2017 13:39:39
I am not a fan of Halliday. I reckon he lacks guile and is not the bravest of players as was seen against Celtic. That said he is certainly not the worst player, (Those that say he is clearly weren't around when we had Jim Denny, Gregor Stevens or Neil Murray, those guys shouldn't even have been playing junior football.

I don't think Halliday has benefitted from Warburton's management style but then why should he be any different than anyone else. There is more fighting spirit, there is more team spirit and an overall better winning mentality

26 Mar 2017 12:31:06
Halliday is a decent player, at the very least a good squad player for us going forward. People giving it he's not good enough need to accept that he's been played out of position all season and we are still in 3rd place even with that shambles of a defence behind him. So he's obviously quite a bit better than most midfielders in the league.

26 Mar 2017 13:09:16
Will we be able to sell players like Halliday etc will they go easily if their going to take a hit in wages?

26 Mar 2017 13:22:36
Gregor Stevens, what a player he was, £400 a week and 10 lbs of prime beef.

24 Mar 2017 08:51:52
It's being reported that KK and SD have been close to an agreement for sometime that will allow us to sell our own shirts by way of a new more balanced retail contract.

If true, this can only be good news and hopefully signals the start of improved finances.

Agree3 Disagree3

24 Mar 2017 09:13:53
Forgive the ignorance, but who is KK?

24 Mar 2017 09:16:29
Should read DK, not KK!

24 Mar 2017 10:02:54
Why can't folk just type actual names, the amount of times i have to pause half way through to play the initials guessing game drives me nuts.

24 Mar 2017 12:05:55
Doesn't take much does it? You should try meditating or yoga

24 Mar 2017 11:56:00
Must waste about 3 secs of your day 😂

24 Mar 2017 17:19:15
think this is nonsense mate where have u heard this and is there an official statement i don't mind rumours mate but not one's that are clearly made up.

the fat rat doesn't like us wants to jail DK
so why on earth would he back track on a deal that has made neither party a lot of money but suits him down to a tee so that king can gets the rough end of the deal

24 Mar 2017 18:23:21
Jim Stirling, do ye read the papers mate? Pretty much every rag has reported it or something like it. If it was made up then it's by someone other than BR65

25 Mar 2017 13:47:31
James Stirling, the very fact that Sports Direct hasn't made money on the deal because of the boycott means that there is no real winner and Ashley has a Board of Directors and shareholders other than himself that he is accountable to.

At some point he has to look at the Business aspects and not just his vendetta with King. With King apparently willing to step down as Chairman there is clearly a deal to be done.

23 Mar 2017 12:07:34
What happened with the Neil McCann as assistant rumour? Is he out the running?

Agree3 Disagree8

23 Mar 2017 15:12:44
he was never in the running realistically

23 Mar 2017 15:54:00
Probably wasn't ever in the running.

23 Mar 2017 16:23:48
Lovenkrands in talks to be assistant

23 Mar 2017 16:51:27
It's only between 3 candidates now, ie. barry ferguson, bomber brown and peter lovenkrands! Still can't see past baz! I think he's an absolute stick on, to get the rangers no. 3 job!

23 Mar 2017 19:40:21
I hope ferguson gets the job as well. I've read on here people saying he was rubbish at clyde. He got them to the play offs one season and a play off final last season i believe. It didn't work out this season for clyde but i would say that he had a decent amount of success at broadwood.

Also, although its not the be all and end all as far as recruitment is concerned, i believe it is not a bad thing that ferguson is a rangers man. I hope you get the job barry ferguson. I enjoyed watching him play and i believe he can help our new manager.

23 Mar 2017 19:53:55
I hope you're right supercoop, i think Barry is tailor made for this job.

23 Mar 2017 23:34:33
Regarding ped the ted's "local coach" think ray Wilkins would be an ideal candidate. exceptional football player, very experienced coach had great spell playing for us so knows club well and has many connections in England .

24 Mar 2017 11:46:14
Wouldn't mind barry or lovenkrands as no 3. Both adored by the support, both love the club, they both know the league and and other clubs strengths (lovenkrands is occasionally a pundit and I believe still lives in scotland) both young as well so could relate to the playing squad and good be key in the dressing room.

24 Mar 2017 11:51:39
Every time an ex player speaks to the press somebody on here wants him to Ibrox, unbelievable

24 Mar 2017 17:07:11
BF, PL, NMCC, RW. Will do for me. ayour reading Cuillin72 lol.

24 Mar 2017 17:20:52
fans haven't made that rumour up it was the press but i can't see lovenkrands getting the job but i would however be happy with an ex-ranger becoming no. 3 for one reason he will get the team inspired to play at a magnificent club like ours and that will be specifically what they are hired for not to do actual coaching but more to help out with the man management

23 Mar 2017 11:24:47
Rangers boss Pedro Caixinha holds talks with Barry Ferguson over coaching role – Sky sources.

So either DR's Jackson is a total liar or. hmmm

Agree7 Disagree1

23 Mar 2017 13:27:15
You mean Keith (exclusive) Jackson.?

23 Mar 2017 13:21:57
How is he lying? He said he spoke to ferguson on the 20th and he hadn't spoke to to caixinha. So we're is the lie there

23 Mar 2017 20:21:59
You don't see it, hooly78? The lie is obviously when he claimed to have spoken to Barry. Either that or Barry gave him a back-heeler.
