Jon McLaughlin is definitely 1 of the 2 that have came back with a positive C.V. test, just hope there isn't going to be many more.

1.) 25 Aug 2021 07:19:58
It’s the close contacts that worry me. When will they let us know?

2.) 25 Aug 2021 08:01:26
I think that we will find out when they arrive at Glasgow airport to fly out for the match we’ll see who is missing.

3.) 25 Aug 2021 08:36:29
Think you are spot on with McLaughlin. Steve Clarke spoke yesterday about leaving him out the Scotland squad and said it was down to him having "a Small issue at Rangers".

Lots of rumours flying about online speculating who else but that's about the only one that's concrete at the moment. Will just need to wait and see what Stevie says in his media conference today.

4.) 25 Aug 2021 10:30:50
Morelos spotted on way to training facility so at least he is fine. hoping someone e see mcgregor soon.

5.) 25 Aug 2021 10:43:16
Would be very surprised if morelos or helander as both have had it already. Morelos more so has had it very recently.

6.) 25 Aug 2021 11:25:35
Paul you can get it more than once my wife has had it twice so doesn’t matter if you have had it before.

7.) 25 Aug 2021 12:13:43
You can get it more than once but you may be less likely to catch it again after having it.

8.) 25 Aug 2021 12:21:05
Not with in quick sucession tho? Am just over it done my 10 days but my missus and kids currently have it. There 10 days is up saturday. But cause av had it i am free to go out and about.

9.) 25 Aug 2021 12:22:44
Also even if they’ve had it don’t they still have to isolate as a close contact.

10.) 25 Aug 2021 12:46:51
Paul what are you doing going out and about u are a close contact of your wife and kids therfore putting anyone u cone in close contact with at high risk? Condradticikg your self in posts here, I assume u live with your wife therefore your isolation don't end until your wife and kids have finished isolation therfore you are admitting here your breaking the rules openly and don't care a jot about anyone but yourself!

11.) 25 Aug 2021 18:27:02
Nessbear i have taken advice of C.V. helpline thanks very much. I have stated i have done my 10 days and no longer infectious. Kids tested positive 5 days after myself so there 10 days are up on friday. i will double check with nhs and C.V. helpline again incase thetly are both wrong and you arw right 😂.

12.) 25 Aug 2021 18:34:00
Oh and i have had zero jags 😁 should probably check the new rules before running your mouth👍.



06 Aug 2021 12:15:41
Middleton to go back on loan to ST Johnstone.

1.) 06 Aug 2021 13:00:41
Yeah unfortunately I just don't think that young Glen fits in with our style of play. SG has tried him at left back, to try and find a solution for him to remain at Rangers.
I hope he does really well at St Johnstone as I feel he could be used as part of a deal to bring young McCann to us poss in the Jan window.

2.) 06 Aug 2021 16:00:08
Stewarty, not sure he tried to find a solution for Middleton, just minutes to keep him fit. Hasn't had any interest in the kid since 2018 and that's ok.

3.) 06 Aug 2021 17:03:33
Unfortunately the wee man just hasn’t been good enough for us to force himself into the squad. A lot of hype when we signed him from Norwich. Hope he can push on at Saints again and find his level but for now it’s not Rangers.

4.) 06 Aug 2021 20:46:31
found his level / club.



06 Aug 2021 11:56:17
Reports sneaking through now are saying it was £200,000 Wigan paid for Jordan Jones though I heard £250,000 with a 10% sell on fee.

1.) 06 Aug 2021 14:35:35
Whatever it was mate it’s good to just get it done and move on, need to get rid of barker permanently and maybe Middleton. Hastie loaned out so we can perhaps get a few in January if he does well.



05 Jun 2021 22:11:17
A lot of talk about some of our players leaving to balance out books or wanting to leave For me the 2/ 3 Bankers that will be leaving is Goldson Kamara and possibly Hagi and that will be because Goldson and Kamara want to play in Epl and Hagi cause we can't guarantee that he will be played every game and his Dad thinks he is the bees knees and should be in a bigger league, and that will balance out the books and give us some cash to bring in a few few players hopefully Ferguson Doige and Nesbit and maybe a big Centre back (not Scottish) cause I believe they are good players and being Scottish really helps in Eutope CB not Scottish cause can't see a good enough one out there. then that would be our business done.

1.) 06 Jun 2021 05:24:38
Would hope not.

2.) 06 Jun 2021 07:03:41
I would prefer to sell those players if it meant we kept Morelos, Kent and Barasic but who knows what will happen. An interesting transfer window coming up. It's great we now have many players with high values and there's no doubt some will be sold.

3.) 06 Jun 2021 07:12:12
Agreed 3 cheers. definitely a lot easier to replace.

4.) 06 Jun 2021 09:29:48
Aye I wouldn't mind selling them but I wouldn't like to let alex1872 sort out the replacement's.

5.) 06 Jun 2021 10:01:51
Sell, Goldson, Kamara and Hagi and buy Ferguson, what a replacement!

6.) 07 Jun 2021 09:09:03
BIGIKS that's not what I said at all I said due to us having to balance the books and Goldson and Kamara wanting to leave and possibly Hagi to I would rather it was them that went well not Goldson but the other 2 rather than kent Morelos Barasic etc and we wouldn't be able to put the full money we got for them back into the squad that's why I said Ferguson in for Kamara Nesbit in not as a replacement for Hagi we have that in wright but for another option up front and a foreign CB for Goldson who's not interested in signing a new deal maybe the guy that's currently playing in Sweden the names went out my head he looks a beast at 6ft 7 and can play out from the back and perhaps Gauld as a replacement for Hagi cause as I said we might see half of the money taken in for these players to put in the squad if we are lucky or will see a lot more if we make the champions league if then we can look at better players.



20 May 2021 09:55:02
The media in Portugal are all saying we have agreed in principle to sign Gauld if so who do you think might be leaving Kent or Hagi for his position and to balance up the books.

1.) 20 May 2021 11:10:00
I hope so alex.

2.) 20 May 2021 11:57:04
Alex. If we free up the wage bill a good bit. Ie. Jones, Edmundson. Basically the players taking a wage and not getting played, I don’t see why we would have to balance the books if we are bringing in players out of contract. Again. Just an opinion. 🤷‍♂️ I haven’t seen anything about us having to balance the books but I understand every player has his price we can’t say no to.

3.) 20 May 2021 12:16:46
I'd say he'd be more of a replacement for Kamara.

4.) 20 May 2021 12:35:49
Aye definitely makes sense to punt Kent or hagi to bring a player in that couldn't get a game for hibs.

5.) 20 May 2021 12:43:57
The 12thman it's been well publices by Dave king about balancing the books this year. For years now we have over spent to get where we are today with soft loans from all our directors. Dave king specifically said at the end of the season there will have to be a player sale to balance the books and make the club self sustainable. the only thing that may go in our favour is if we win the league next season were straight into the group stage of the champions league. If our directors can fund us for another year with soft loans then we become self sustainable with champions league money but as I've said it's well known as Dave king said this in interviews last year about selling players to become sustainable and has shown nothing for fans to think otherwise does it stands probably expect 2 first team, first 11 team players leaving.

6.) 20 May 2021 12:53:54
Alex where was it saying that about gauld bud, have tried looking but can only see that Norwich and Celtic may go for him?

7.) 20 May 2021 13:07:42
Champions he stuggled with injury at hibs. Has been class in portugal this season.

8.) 20 May 2021 13:33:09
I also can't see anything, anywhere linking us to ryan gauld alex but i would want us to sign him🤔If we were to sign gauld he'd be more of a replacement for ianis hagi as he's nothing like ryan kent or glenn kamara!

9.) 20 May 2021 14:17:10
Will keep an eye out for this story developing with interest.

10.) 20 May 2021 14:22:27
STV sports journalist saying 30 clubs have made offers for Gauld agent must be doing a good job.

11.) 20 May 2021 14:38:53
Champions go have a look at Ryan gauld stats compared to all the 50 million pound plus players at clubs like Porto, benfica, sporting Lisbon, standard liege etc. his stats are consistent within the top 3 players in the league for assists, tackles, runs etc etc etc etc for a team that fighting relegation. Your seeing a little slice in a big pie let's say. go have a look then get back to us.

12.) 20 May 2021 14:53:49
The 3 years of Europa League money since SG arrived has massively dented the soft loan issue. We are not in dire straits as many 'fans' illude to. Like any club, and C.V., running costs are owed but we do not have massive bill to clear. and getting gauld certainly won't be an issue.

13.) 20 May 2021 15:10:38
Time will tell davie. It doesn’t mean it’s going to happen this season. I think the idea would be to promote these players in the champs league and up the price as no one will pay the money we think out players are worth while playing spl football. They don’t with europa either. If it’s not broke don’t fix it. As I said offer too strong to resist then fair enough but I can’t see us selling any big players. Possibly hagi? But if you add up the money that the fringe player would total to then that could help balance the books without any major disruption to the squad.

14.) 20 May 2021 16:44:45
Methinks ca is a reconstituted moniker

Gauld would be a great signing.

15.) 20 May 2021 17:02:12
The 12th. Dave king specifically said this season. fact. and has said nothing to change that.

16.) 20 May 2021 18:10:59
Why would gauld be like kamara or kent Those 2 players ain’t similar either.

17.) 20 May 2021 18:45:37
Gauls is never replacing glen although I’ve been saying I’ve wanted Gauls on a free for a while I belive he would be most effective coming on at 60/ 70 mins fresh legs as a impact player his and glens play styles are totally different he could possible replace hagi but no where
Near the level of Kent.

18.) 20 May 2021 19:10:28
Yes davie. You said that 👍. Chz.

19.) 20 May 2021 19:31:17
Gauld definitely worth bringing to the club - sell hagi for him as similar players and likely hagi fee more than Gauld so some extra cash for club and sell jones (think he is good but not for SG I think) - Stewart (free transfer but off wage bill) - Edmonson (sell and off wage bill) - more cash for club and with possible champions league money (if we make group) we may not need to sell one of our big players like Kamara Morelos borna.

20.) 20 May 2021 21:46:09
With regards to the financial side, it was said that we will need to sell a top asset to redress the £10m we have been in the red approx for each of the past 3-4 seasons.
Obviously we also lost a fair bit of revenue due to C.V..
We also brought in additional prize money for Europa run, winning league and a substantial amount due to our deal with Castore with both the upfront fee and a favourable royalty for each purchase.
If and it’s really a 50/ 50 but if we can qualify for Champions league this season there will be no need to sell 1 of our top assets but I still think Morelos or Kent or Ariibo or Kamara could be sold if a big offer was made to club.

21.) 20 May 2021 21:50:24
Sell hagi for £10m maybe more. Get gauld on a free or pennies and he’s prob a better player.

22.) 20 May 2021 22:33:53
Maybe no one's seen anything about Gauld, but did anyone see anything about Roofe and Itten?

23.) 21 May 2021 00:46:29
The glasgowranger correct mate. We will definitely sell off 1 or 2. and still in the hope of bringing in 30 mill champions league money. Glad brondby won last night we are now definitely seeded in qualifier.

24.) 21 May 2021 08:35:10
If we are replacing Kent and Kamara with the likes of Gauld then we are in trouble. 👍.

25.) 21 May 2021 16:24:54
Correct coldo it’s beyond belief .

26.) 21 May 2021 17:36:31
Ryan Gauld is not an upgrade and isn't as good as the aforementioned Hagi and Kent far from it!

It would be a case of quantity over quality here Perhaps Steven Gerrard can get the best out of him but certainly coming in, he would be a squad player.

27.) 21 May 2021 20:44:12
If Gauld is an upgrade on Hagi why would we sell Hagi for £10m and get Gauld on a free?

Seems to me he has a great agent trying to bump up his story.

28.) 21 May 2021 23:52:27
Calm down boys and have a wee drink of tea and a lie down, we're not signing Gauld. He is nowhere near what we need and is vastly inferior to those that some of you would wish to sell.

29.) 22 May 2021 07:49:49
Absolutely tavsonloyal.

30.) 22 May 2021 08:02:18
Cant see any link to Gauld in any recent media .

Fake NEWS me thinks, but would sign if on a free.

31.) 22 May 2021 16:32:47
He won’t be a replacement for Kent or Kamara it’ll be for Hagi (I like Hagi) but he’s gona be the guy to leave I think.

32.) 22 May 2021 22:08:11
He is also nothing like Hagi SGL. Hagi has almost the same stats as Kent with far less playing time. People seem to underestimate hagi on a vast scale imho 👌.

33.) 23 May 2021 08:00:42
Tabs loyal Ryan gauld has the most man of the match awards in Portugal this year with 9 so far. think that stat says it all doesn't it.

34.) 23 May 2021 19:34:47
daviedouglas, no.

35.) 25 May 2021 09:39:23
Yes DD, gauld is a very good player,

I know people who think he’s bound for England, I hope Rangers sign him, he’s very talented boy.

36.) 25 May 2021 16:22:13
I’d love him at rangers but I think we’d have to sell either hagi, aribo roofe Kent or Wright as he would be playing in that false 10 position.

26 Jul 2021 17:23:09
1.5 million we have received for Edmudson from Ipswich the 2nd biggest fee in a decade behind Jelavic which the club didn't see a penny off, wilson has done well to get that fee for him but I hope there is a sell on clause in there aswell cause I still think he will be a great player.

1.) 26 Jul 2021 18:17:30
Alex where u reading this.

2.) 26 Jul 2021 19:19:42
Town made a bid understood to be approaching £1 million over the weekend which Rangers agreed to accept this morning. From Ipswich shareholder.

3.) 26 Jul 2021 19:20:29
Heard it was £1m tbh from Ipswich Town article.
I’m sure we will find out in due course.

4.) 26 Jul 2021 20:19:09
Heard also it was £1million + add ons and a sell on clause into the edmundson to ipswich town deal 🤔.

5.) 26 Jul 2021 20:21:37
6 figures ain't 1 million plus.

6.) 26 Jul 2021 20:45:37
Correct DD, 2 pennies difference.

7.) 26 Jul 2021 21:38:42
Once again, untrue as we got over 2m for windass.

8.) 27 Jul 2021 07:07:52
Herwego55 no we didn't we hot £1.3million for Windass raising to £1.5million after a certain amount of appearances. And John25 it's on many sites now Ibroxnoise just to name one of many, and they were also talking about on the radio.



22 Jul 2021 19:18:23
Goldson wanting to sign new deal but wants to be the highest paid player at club looking for near 35k+ a week, Rangers have agreed to this in principle but depending upon if we qualify for CL how much we can give him, so deal will be done one way or another after the qualifiers.

1.) 22 Jul 2021 21:43:31
Crap, so if we fail to qaulify and the window is then closed he can sign a pre contract in January. I'm calling this bull.

2.) 22 Jul 2021 21:47:38
I like godson but not sure enough to pay 35k a week and if club can only afford if we get into cl then we really can't afford it.

3.) 22 Jul 2021 22:02:54
If the rumours are true about offering Gary Cahill 35k a week I'd rather give it to Goldson. Cahill would be dreadful signing.

4.) 22 Jul 2021 22:18:16
I wrote in May this guy wanted to be our top earner. Also wanted an 8 million clause inserted so he could then bugger off.

5.) 22 Jul 2021 22:36:15
I posted the same a few days ago my understanding is if we get CL or Europa league stage it’s a done deal.

6.) 22 Jul 2021 22:58:21
DD we will know before the window closes wether we are in champs league or not so what you say is BULL.

7.) 22 Jul 2021 23:25:15
25 to 30k should be ceiling. Shouldn't be paying anyone more there has to be a wage structure. 1 great season and that's almost double his cash believe he is on 18k just now.

8.) 23 Jul 2021 00:02:17
My answer is the same for all such situations, NOBODY is bigger than the Club, he was given a playing field he would never have been on had he not joined us. Let him go if money is more important to him, good player or not.

9.) 23 Jul 2021 00:21:33
Hes one of our best players so should be earning on par with whatever our top earner is, simple enough. Never heard anything but positivity from him and no angling for a move so deserves a strong contract offer.

10.) 23 Jul 2021 06:50:12
Whatever happens, it needs to happen soon! I like Goldson, but the club must make a decision quickly or run the risk of losing him for nothing. Is he worth being our highest paid player? If he does get his own way and become our highest paid player does it set a precedent for others to follow? They say nobody is bigger than the club, but the way things are now with player and agent demands, is that really true?

11.) 23 Jul 2021 07:18:45
You have to pay the man what he’s worth ever present a leader our best CB, If we want the loyalty that so many supporters on here crave we have to pay our top players what they are worth! Obv there has to be a limit but you have to think what he could earn at a wolves, Newcastle etc.

12.) 23 Jul 2021 08:44:40
R1 he is not worth 35k a week in my opinion nowhere near it.

Giving players ridiculous wages the last time got us in trouble so I would sell him.

13.) 23 Jul 2021 08:58:16
If he's wanting 35k a week just get him punted now. he's not worth that.

14.) 23 Jul 2021 09:51:18
I agree Paul.

15.) 23 Jul 2021 10:01:57
£28k a week and a £10m clause in contract seems reasonable under the circumstances.

16.) 23 Jul 2021 10:19:39
Can i just say the reason for our conceding least goals record isn't all about defence. We defend from the from know when to close down n know when to leave them the ball due to our positioning. Morelos n kent are vital to this harassing defenders at every opportunity, the opposition get no time to settle. Its a team effort not just defence, mid are calm cool imposed and good in the tackle too, now with lundstram we have added extra bite but he can play and score as well. We achieve as a unit. We are well drilled if we fail champs qualification this year hopefully good run in europa, but i think we are heavy favourites for automatic qualification next year. As as one n one for all, we win together we loose together, n our team is a good age apart from the odd couple, onwards n upwards 👌💙.

17.) 23 Jul 2021 11:12:58
I’ve had a look at two sites Salalry sport and Sporting free and both state Goldson is on £27,000 a week, He had a good season past and scored some important goals. But he’s still a heart attack with the ball at feet around our 18 yard box. Alfredo is on £33,000 according to both sites.

18.) 23 Jul 2021 11:18:47
Kja9 sorry I got my 2 dates the wrong way round.

It was a fake video and I can't believe everybody fell for it, omg anybody can edit a video, he was never wanted or coming to Rangers its Birmingham the club he supported that he's going to and thank feck to that to slow and not worth the wages in my opinion.

Barsic is in Rome having a medical with Roma 2 Italian teams were outbiding for him Roma and Inter Milan but Roma and Rangers have agreed on a 12 million fee, and before he is in Rome the reports stating its Roma that's bid has been accepted must be spot on or why else would he be having a Medical with Roma, but I feel he's getting pushed out the door to balance the books rather than Barasic wanting to leave.

Fortiescharlie trust me I've had it and it's far from a really bad flu, I've since had both injections, and i know it affects people in different ways and there is different strains aswell, but please unless you have had it yourself and know how bad it is or can be please don't call it just a bad flu, especially when there has been deaths with it aswell.

{Ed001's Note - I would suggest it is more none of you have a clue what flu is, because most people call a heavy cold flu. Flu can kill and will knock you off your feet for at least a week if you have it. So it is not trivialising anything to describe it as a really bad flu. The last time the world had a really bad flu pandemic was just after WW1 and that killed a lot more people than the war did.}

You having a giraffe Nacho77 he's no captain Material, nor nowhere near a Rangers legend yet either. Laudrup Gasgoine McCoist Gough etc are Legends kent is a great player on his day but has a long way to go to become a legend yet, and I just can't see him as a captain either but great player for us.

Surely a positive test means positive for C.V. I would imagine and that's why 2 players are already in isolation maybe more by now? Ed033. What I can't get my head around is why all players squad and staff haven't been fully vaccinated with both C.V. vax injections months ago is beyond me.

{Ed033's Note - i will repeat: Maybe it's because getting a C.V. injection is like playing Russian Roulette. Haven't you heard of the Yellow Card scheme or the VAERS system?
