See quite a few posts suggesting newcastle in for the buff all from rag outlets but u never know.


1.) 09 Jan 2022 21:13:49
Sorry but Newcastle are in a very bad situation sink or swim Sink anyone connected to Ashley dive dive dive.

2.) 10 Jan 2022 07:06:28
Is Ashley still connected to Newcastle?

3.) 10 Jan 2022 08:26:47
Think there's been talk of him wanting to take over derby now baxter.

4.) 10 Jan 2022 09:07:28
From Ashley’s frying pan and into a massive burning fire! And to think they were running about with bed sheets on 😩😩😩.

5.) 10 Jan 2022 10:10:40
Newcastle are in for woods from Burnley.

6.) 10 Jan 2022 12:09:49
We have seen the best of Alfredo Morelos
Bite Newcastle's hand off.

7.) 11 Jan 2022 16:19:14
Newcastle would be a bad move for Morelos or anyone else with ambition! Irrespective of the money that they spend they could still be heading down to the Championship come the end of the Season and it will take a few transfer windows for them to be anywhere close to Man City, Liverpool, Chelsea etc. That assumes that they find themselves a manager better than Howe!



17 Apr 2021 20:53:28
Four lads had a dream tweet saying that this may be a 7-8 million pound year for sales anyone know how that stacks up? Be great news if it is.


1.) 17 Apr 2021 22:59:41
Close to 500,000 items sold according to JB. Not sure I share you scelticism or suspicion that 4 lads are lying.

2.) 17 Apr 2021 23:59:43
Pretty simple is it not?
You sell lots of strips, chocolate bars and whisky and you make lots of money. John25 was saying we had sold half a million items so I think castore will also be delighted with the big bag of cash they have made too.

3.) 18 Apr 2021 07:46:24
3 cheers this is in interview by James bigrives yesterday.

4.) 18 Apr 2021 07:57:05
How much more could they have sold had they upped their game? New stop coming soon yet my boy strip not coming till June. Also see Newcastle taking castore on at expense of fat boys beloved puma? Is the fat man involved in some way after all? Not like him not to have his fat finger in the pie!

5.) 18 Apr 2021 10:22:11
Tjbb like what you did there. not sceltical just wondered what the breakdown is on it and how we knew it was 7-8 million. Just watched the Wilson bisgrove interview professionalism from the staff now at the club is impressive.

6.) 18 Apr 2021 13:01:58
Just watched the interview John25 on you tube with Bisgrove and Wilson. Things are looking very good on and off the park. The two shops due to open soon in Belfast and Glasgow Airport will be busy when they open their doors. James Bisgrove has been a good signing with the amount of revenue streams he has made possible with more to come. The whole club now has great people from top to bottom and its great too see it all coming together.

7.) 19 Apr 2021 18:16:47
Projected sales was 5 million but they did say they would be expecting a fair bit higher. If we are hitting those numbers this season I reckon next years will be massive having won 55 and our 150 year anniversary.



15 Nov 2020 07:35:15
Kenny McClean being linked with us again anyone else think money better spent else where.


1.) 15 Nov 2020 10:10:37
We tried to sign McLean in last window and his club declined to advance discussions.

2.) 15 Nov 2020 12:46:58
If were after mclean is he any better than what we already have

Kamara davis aribo jack arfield etc?

Jones an edmunston will be sold in jan but there diff positions to mckean.

3.) 15 Nov 2020 13:00:21
Not in january but depends who leaves in summer. Decent midfielder.

4.) 15 Nov 2020 14:13:43
Throw Zungu to your list INTR, also.

5.) 15 Nov 2020 15:42:33
Hes nothing special, think he'd struggle to get a game to be honest.

6.) 15 Nov 2020 15:45:07
We don’t need him
We’re strong enough now in midfield.

7.) 15 Nov 2020 15:54:13
I. N. T. R I can't see edmunson going till katic is fit as we don't have cover at CB. Think it could be summer departure. Just not sure where Mclean would fit. He is a decent player and good all rounder but would rather see Ferguson come in as think he has everything Mclean has.

8.) 15 Nov 2020 16:01:43
Hes a good experienced player, knows the SPL, rare left foot and good competition for Aribo, full international, knows what Rangers is all about - don't see any down sides to be honest.

9.) 15 Nov 2020 16:23:00
Av said before a would like Kenny McLean at Rangers but to bring him in now, who would we take out? He’s got something that out midfielders lack a bit. a very good powerful shot from outside the box.

10.) 15 Nov 2020 17:44:52
Whilst it by no way means he’s coming, he is a close friend of a friend and he told me McLean is aware of interest and is expecting an offer of some kind in Jan. Big blue nose so it’s always a possibility. I think he’s a cracking player. Would happily sign him.

11.) 15 Nov 2020 18:06:31
Alex Ben really not happening, Norwich have him valued at ten million with West Ham favourite to get him.

12.) 15 Nov 2020 18:34:27
cannot, really may be happening, and the boys a great wee player and as TJ says, he knows Scottish football and is an international and a bluenose, of course that will instantly turn him into a crap player in some eyes, because strangely some Rangers fans don’t like players who also support rangers, how weird is that.

13.) 15 Nov 2020 22:04:32
Thumb12. Would u pay 10 million for McLean.

14.) 15 Nov 2020 22:12:40
Yes I think that we should sign him why?, he’s Scottish, blue nose, knows what’s at stake this season and won’t need time to settle in that is the worry that if we get a player in the next window he’ll need time to settle in . Imo.

15.) 15 Nov 2020 22:15:29
Possibly not, but the market is vastly different now, if Rangers got 20 m for Kent? Then yes I would because he’s a young international player, and that is the future.

16.) 15 Nov 2020 22:58:43
Scrambled egg, imo we can’t afford 10 million. For a player no sell on value.
Tom young international player u do know he’s 29 in January
I’d rather take lundstrum on a free, better player imo.

17.) 15 Nov 2020 23:43:11
Kenny McLean is 28 years old, great experience but at £10 million the answer is simply no. Rangers will only spend big money on players with potential sell on. At 28 it’s there is no potential return on investment. Good player yes, but Rangers need good players we can develop and sell on. Perhaps a loan deal and maybe £3 million we could consider it.

18.) 15 Nov 2020 23:49:40
Didn’t say it was happening but he said he’s expecting an offer of some kind. Whether that would be loan/ transfer or even if either would be expected I’ve no idea.

19.) 16 Nov 2020 09:11:19
Norwich are never getting anywhere near 10m for mclean lads, they can value him at whatever they want but no way anybody pays that.

20.) 16 Nov 2020 09:11:50
Agree would not pay 10 million would take him loan deal.

21.) 16 Nov 2020 11:32:10
He’d struggle to make our bench, slower than a week in the jail with no real engine behind him.

22.) 16 Nov 2020 12:02:49
Where are we getting 10m from? Is that the price the newspapers are throwing about?
If that figure is correct, and it's not just paper talk, Norwich are in for a long wait to find a team daft enough to bite?
Rangers will never pay that sort of money for someone like Kenny McLean!

23.) 16 Nov 2020 12:08:19
Man heat bear, McLean 29 in January so won’t be 28 when we sign him,
Alex Ben not disputing what u r hearing just saying terrible deal for gers.

24.) 16 Nov 2020 12:55:08
McLean currently not getting regular game at Norwich, the deal in January would be loan. If Zuniga creates impact over next 10 games can’t see McLean at Ibrox in January.

25.) 16 Nov 2020 13:09:35
Kenny McLean current market value 3.2 million euro

26.) 16 Nov 2020 15:01:17
He would be an improvement on arfield and davis nearing end Kamara will go too.

27.) 16 Nov 2020 17:47:33
Time will tell. Not worth the money.

28.) 16 Nov 2020 18:01:00
Hes worth what someone will pay for him but I guarantee it wint be anywhere even close to 10m.

29.) 16 Nov 2020 18:26:02
10 million what are the people at Norwich smoking? He is slower than a week in the jail.

TT just because people don’t rate McLean it has nothing to do with who he supports it’s a ludicrous statement to make.

30.) 16 Nov 2020 18:29:31
McLean cost is £3m after 6 month loan. Unlikely to happen now with good cover in that area.

31.) 16 Nov 2020 19:51:32
Must admit 6counties although i like kenny mclean, i rate scotty arfield better than him mate 👍.

32.) 16 Nov 2020 20:20:27
They ain’t the same type of player McLean is more defensive n arfield attacking and you use to be a midfielder as well 🤭.

33.) 16 Nov 2020 21:06:13
KJA9, so now we know Coops was an attacking midfielder back in the day.

34.) 16 Nov 2020 23:50:07
He played for his primary school team. 🤣.

35.) 17 Nov 2020 16:23:06
Bankie 😂😂

I wouldn’t take arfield or Davis out the team for McLean honestly don’t see what some fans see in him.

He is no better than McCrorie and I didn’t think he was good enough.

He also ain’t getting a game for Norwich.

36.) 17 Nov 2020 16:39:43
SWMc. I wonder what primary he played for Think SGL is from the Lothians? 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿⚽️🇬🇧👍.

37.) 17 Nov 2020 17:09:59
Coops said back in the day he was top midfielder for his county.

38.) 17 Nov 2020 17:33:00
Lanarkshire guys.

39.) 17 Nov 2020 21:05:00
Coops, like your famous namesake from Hamilton. Wonderful player.

40.) 18 Nov 2020 00:57:52
Kj, how is that ludicrous mate? I'm happy for most players to be Rangers fans, always, and I've noticed over a long number of years that some people talk down players just because they are known to be Rangers fans, now unless you're saying that never happens at all then your the one being ludicrous

41.) 18 Nov 2020 02:10:47
SGL 👍. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿⚽️🇬🇧👍.

42.) 18 Nov 2020 16:12:29
TT it is ludicrous maybe the fans that you are talking about just don’t think they are good players and it has nothing to do with who they support that’s why it’s ludicrous and I stand by that.

One example haliday I didn’t like him because I thought and still think he is utter garbage (my opinion) and I couldn’t give a feck who he supported .

43.) 18 Nov 2020 21:51:46
Kj let's get this straight mate, my post says I've noticed over years how some people react about possible signing being Rangers supporters, that's not " ludicrous " that's something I've seen, so just using words like ludicrous for dramatic effect is in fact " ludicrous " and I said i'm happy for any new players to be Rangers fans, is that wrong then too? Ludicrous even?

44.) 18 Nov 2020 18:53:03
McLean would be 7th in line for a game in our midfield 3. He's ponderous, has no real engine, is Mr Average, will soon be 29 and we're not going to sign him.



06 Jul 2020 22:35:07
Anyone any updates on the investors and if they are investing I'm sure it was supposed to be the end of June for new investment?


1.) 07 Jul 2020 13:05:10
C.V. has delayed a lot of Investment, especially Investment from the Far East. What is more, the situation in Hong Kong won't be helping matters either. This is just a hunch based on investment deals that I am aware of in the US that are delayed for these reasons.



02 Jun 2020 19:20:06
First time posting so be kind

Heard from a mate that we were in talks again for Mirko Maric but they want too much for him they were supposed to want 5 million and aren't shifting.

Just a thought but if we are to sell Morelos why not loan him out instead with a similar agreement that Liverpool did with Kent. Say 1 year lone for 3 mil to a premier club. He gets the chance to play in the premiership and increases his value we buy someone with the add on.


1.) 02 Jun 2020 19:49:00
Because were giving away out topscorer for a season for 3m, and it would cost way more than that for a replacement, would be my guess! doesn't make sense really, does it?

2.) 02 Jun 2020 20:23:39
If he was heading to the premiership anyway

We send him to the premiership for a year he bangs in a ton he's worth a good bit more. Plus the money for the loan.

Better than getting £15-20 million at best at the moment.

3.) 02 Jun 2020 20:51:05
55rangers I see what you are saying but and I'm not having a go, if he goes and flops his value would go through the floor. IMO morelos if happy should stay for 1 more season. Hopefully his time back in Colombia with his family and new baby has got his head straight. He gets the form he had pre xmas for the whole season and I firmly believe with another couple key 1st choice additions with couple back ups in key areas and we could take that league. I would be looking for 4 maybe 5 new faces with at least 3 more leaving then buy or loan a couple decent players in January and 55 will come.

4.) 02 Jun 2020 21:04:54
I take your point bellshilllad there is potential devaluation. I can't see us being able to buy anyone unless we sell and no one will go for anywhere near their value until CV dissapears. Think it'll all be loans and free agents.

5.) 02 Jun 2020 22:58:43
Btw, if we can replace Morelos for the 3 mil loan fee, how can we ask upward of 20 m for him?

6.) 02 Jun 2020 23:28:41
I’d keep morales for one more season sell Goldson for 6million and kamara for 7million that’s 13million to spend. Keep buffalo and hopefully he has a cracking season I would not sell him this summer and We definitely can’t sell barasic we need him this season and his price tag will sky rocket when he has another good season and then he plays as number 1 left back for Croatia at the euros in the summer.

7.) 03 Jun 2020 00:34:39
What if he goes out on loan and gets a bad injury goodbye to £10m+.

8.) 03 Jun 2020 08:47:53
What if he stays and doesn't improve on his after Christmas form his value will dive then too.

9.) 03 Jun 2020 10:39:58
Speculation. Only time will tell.

10.) 03 Jun 2020 11:35:52
maric for morelos why? would ony be sale and purchase. 5 mil too high for euro player.

11.) 04 Jun 2020 07:47:29
The reality is most of us know very little about Maric, I always get excited when I hear of us linked to big foreign striker with hefty price tag, I dream that he is the next Jelavic or Prso but it is a gamble that might not pay off if the guy can’t adapt to our game.

Sometime you might be better off grabbing the guy next door that’s doing the business already in Scotland, less cost and less gamble, if Morelos stays get dykes if he goes get Maric and dykes, but bear in mind Taylor is likely coming to us aswell if rumours are to be believed.

16 Apr 2022 20:22:07
All the talk of a rebuild in the summer who du think will go and who stays? Not a negative thing b4 anyone starts just wondered what everyone's thoughts on who the must keeps are?


1.) 16 Apr 2022 21:15:53
The must keeps we would list are probably the ones that have the biggest chance of a move as they will have suitors, just depends what bids we get. If the likes of Kent and Aribo don’t commit to a new deal this summer then I’d accept any good bids for them, as much as I’d like them to stay, we don’t want another Goldson situation where they run down their contracts and you don’t get a decent return for them. Would do everything possible to keep Alfredo. Our chances of retaining him again might have been boosted buy the fact he’s picked up an injury. I’d sell Kamara, he’s nowhere near the same player for us as last season, currently can’t get a game and if rumours are true there are a lot of clubs lining up to buy him. Was talks of £10m last summer, there’s no way we can have a £10m player who doesn’t get a game lol. We need to sell players, that’s our model now and you have a player who’s got a good valuation not playing, makes perfect sense to sell him for me

Would definitely try and clear some of the fringe players as well. Itten, Wright, Middleton, Katic, Kelly. If you can get better quality than what’s already there then balance the squad by shifting some of them.

2.) 16 Apr 2022 22:00:45
Itten and Simpson are at the top of my list of players to leave this summer, both have proven to be disastrous signings.

3.) 16 Apr 2022 22:23:02
I'd keep Wright, he is good to bring on.

4.) 16 Apr 2022 22:24:49
I'd say Mcgregor and Davis will go I'd like us to have another go at goldson to see if he'd sign as much as he gets stick think he's important see one outlet giving him 3 out of 10 for Thursday which is a joke.

5.) 16 Apr 2022 22:26:07
And I agree fruitbear good post.

6.) 16 Apr 2022 22:39:51
Dont think it's a question of must keeps
McGregor and Davis retiring
Goldson, Kent, Kamara, Aribo, Balogun, Morelos all likely to go.
Not to mention Bassey?, Arfield?, Barisic? Itten, Katic, Simpson, Ramsey, and at least half a dozen youngsters who are not making the grade.
This is huge, and honestly I don't know how we rebuild on that scale.

7.) 16 Apr 2022 23:03:11
Must keeps would be:



New contract:

8.) 16 Apr 2022 23:05:24
Honestly think with the contract situation of many this will be the biggest rebuild for a long time. Probably leave will be Mcgregor Goldson Balogun Barasic Kamara Davis Aribo Kent from 1st team as well as squad players like Itten Katic Middleton McCrorie Simpson. Hopefully manage to keep Morelos due to injury. Arfield Jack and Roofe and Helander possibly moved on due to injury record record. Perhaps not lose all of them but will have to be prepared to lose them for nothing. Massive summer ahead.

9.) 17 Apr 2022 00:13:00
I think we will lose Kent, Kamara, Aribo and Barisic this summer via transfer. McRorie and a few others will leave via free transfer and Greegs/ Davis will retire. Massive summer for us but we must keep hold of Alfie, Tav, Bassey and Lundstram at all costs.

10.) 17 Apr 2022 07:02:43
I agree irvger, I think Scott Wright gets some bad press from the fans at times. The lad is quick and skilful and did very well when he was subbed on Thursday. Caused real problems for Braga down their left side and, if not for wasteful finishing, would have had a couple of great assists.

11.) 17 Apr 2022 07:05:25
Ac 21 not a chance Mccrorie will leave on a free transfer the lad has a contract.

12.) 17 Apr 2022 08:32:56
Bar 72 you'd have been quicker saying who you think is staying.

13.) 17 Apr 2022 09:36:14
Livibear, agreed! But do you disagree?
It's a worry. but let's get today over with first
1 0 will do to the Gers for me.

14.) 17 Apr 2022 10:06:55
I don't think we need a massive rebuild, just a few key positions.

15.) 17 Apr 2022 08:33:44
Would agree with most or all on the above in a strange way I don't fear it. Would like to see gio get the chance to work with his own squad and think it's time for change this squad brought us 55 and who knows what this year.

16.) 17 Apr 2022 08:34:33
Can you explain to me why bassey must be kept yet seemingly some are desperate to sell barisic, kamara and Kent? After a summer rebuild bassey won't be near the first 11,nor should he be, bang average and that's me being kind, there will be a rebuild but not as big as people on here think.



07 Feb 2022 10:42:42
Some of the Rags reporting Aribo price tag is 10mil surely we'd be looking for more?


1.) 07 Feb 2022 11:05:51
Doesn't he go into the final year of his contract in the summer?

2.) 07 Feb 2022 11:16:54
Surely you don't believe what these outlets are reporting, but the fact that you've made the effort to report this on a forum would suggest that you do which is a worry. The only thing the media in Scotland report truthfully is the date and time and even those i would double check.

3.) 07 Feb 2022 11:23:39
55Rangers. I though that too yesterday when I read it and MpH is right going into his last year come summer so I’m assuming that has to be taken into account?



30 Jan 2022 09:03:30
On yesterday I think it shows big ced is really not the answer and center back is not playing to basseys strengths. His pace will get us out of a hole but his distribution from cb is terrible. His positioning is off too brings their attackers into the game kind of wish we had brought Katic in as an option. Also on ced surely its been a mistake letting defoe go when we did? Man plays man scores

Think we need the squad freshened up I look back to gerrard saying we didn't get the new player bounce in the summer we were expecting. Well the January bounce is only coming from 1 player so far.

Hope yesterday means we put ourselves under pressure to perform lack of a challenge has hurt us as we have been allowed to.


1.) 30 Jan 2022 09:44:22
I think Itten showed that he is not good enough for us long before yesterday hence why he was sent out on loan. As for Katic he's not very good either and you say Basseys distribution is terrible then i would say katic is even worse.

2.) 30 Jan 2022 16:56:03
Three cheers at least katic can defend his box he is clearly a better option at cb then big Bassey.



31 Dec 2021 18:11:15
Does anyone think that xavi simons will make the first team squad before next year if he comes?


1.) 31 Dec 2021 18:20:23
I don’t think he comes otherwise mate. Don’t think he comes at all to be honest!

2.) 31 Dec 2021 18:20:59
If he has made it to the first XI in PSG I'd be inclined to give the boy a good chance of doing so with us.

3.) 31 Dec 2021 18:40:48
If xavi simons signs for us he'll make our first team squad with ease mate.

4.) 31 Dec 2021 18:49:03
A think he goes straight in tbh 55rangers
Maybe not a starter straight away but definitely makes the bench boy is a class act.

5.) 31 Dec 2021 19:21:45
He goes straight into 1st team squad he wouldn’t sign otherwise tho I don’t think he will sign.

6.) 31 Dec 2021 21:04:36
Hes outstanding at u19 level but is he proven at senior level?



27 Nov 2021 17:14:28
If you were one of the other teams in our league play against us. Would you have a go because its a free hit or would you play anti football with 10 players behind the ball?


1.) 27 Nov 2021 17:23:22
Most will try for the draw or that one attempt at goal where they seem to score against us then sit back.
I suppose every point is a prisoner when you are trying to avoid relegation every sesson.

2.) 27 Nov 2021 17:49:28
Managers in the bottom half try and work out how many points they need to avoid relegation, then they discount the 8 old firm games. After that they try and work out where they can win or draw games to achieve the minimum points total. Some managers see it as a free hit and try and go for it, others view it as a bonus point if they sit in and get a draw. Personally I prefer they have a go, makes for a more entertaining game.

3.) 27 Nov 2021 19:42:57
Just think it's a test of where a team is when they come to us. As you say alloa there's 24 pnts on offer realistically are you playing for three draws or 1 win out of the 8.

4.) 27 Nov 2021 19:50:13
Like most SPL teams you would defend for your lives and hope to get a goal on the break or at a set piece, very few will have a go for 90 mins, wish they would.

5.) 27 Nov 2021 22:34:54
Or Livi, mid table team who have caused us probs before, built like brick outhouses strong and will run all day to make our lives a misery, and as someone has pointed out previously 1 chance on target seems to result in a goal these days.

Hope not, hoping for 3-1 Rangers and not ruin my nice pie and bovril at Livi.

I'd sign siegrist off of Dundee utd think he's free in the summer. Be a good back up to mc clauchlan. I personally think mcclauchlan plays the sweeper keeper better than mcgregor and his distribution is better. Not as much of a big shot stopper though.

Think it was reported only because gerrard had said he might go for someone he knew as captain. I think the question asked him was trying to lead him that way. Not sure much in it.

Great to see some of the youth coming through John. Really impressed with their confidence and composure for youngsters. If you get 1 or 2 a year transitioning you are doing really well.

Its a hard one to call. We need to be high tempo from the start and score early as this team is dangerous but when will we realise we are too. We've got to believe I think this will be an extra time job again and from there who knows. Dare to dream WATP.

You've watched more than I have of the b team john do you think it's an improvement on b4? And are the youngsters realistically at the level of first team.

Defoe would have done a job for us this year he'd have given us goals.
