Is it just me or does anyone else think looking at the Loan signings we are making that Stevie G is underestimating the standard of The SPFL like warbs and Pedro we haven't had a consistent loan player since Steve Davis (different level) loan spell

Not being negative just looking back at the facts ie Newcastle boys oduwa Hyndman and Goss.

Really hope I'm wrong.


1.) 23 Jul 2018 01:46:27
You haven’t seen any of the loans play yet apart from Ejaria? Neither have any of us so we can’t possinly answer that question regarding solely loan players.

However, All I can tell you is that so far, the 3 games we have seen, Gerrards signings such as McGregor, Goldson, Katic, Flanagan, Arfield and the boy I’ve just mentioned, they have been our best performers.

So answering your question based on that, then no.

2.) 23 Jul 2018 02:56:38
Spot on. Prepare for incoming.

3.) 22 Jul 2018 23:53:45
Hyndman was a cracking player for us!

4.) 23 Jul 2018 07:45:19
How about you wait until December until they’ve all had 12+ games before judging whether they are the correct standard or not.

5.) 23 Jul 2018 12:57:37
coulibaly and sadiq have played first team games at a high level in france, Italy and Holland so they shouldn't be too much of a risk. i think coulibaly could be a star player for us this year.

6.) 23 Jul 2018 13:24:22
Coulibaly and Sadiq could probably do alright in the English Premiership, so I think they'll be fine in the SPFL, provided their attitude is good. Jury is out on Kent as we haven't seen him play in a Rangers jersey yet. Ejaria looks decent and definitely a step up from Holt or Forrester etc. I don't think SG has underestimated the League at all.

7.) 23 Jul 2018 18:09:50
im hoping your right don't get me wrong. would love big sadiq to be on fire but from footage available he looks nothing special. i hope i'm wrong.

8.) 24 Jul 2018 00:54:34
Fact is we need loan signings to see us through the year as we cannot afford to buy/ bring in talent like Ejaria, Kent, Coulibaly etc on permanents alongside the permanents we have made, in a perfect world we could but when we’re basically rebuilding from start again (& we are 10 new faces in the door tells us that) in a league like this we can’t afford it! had we had an established team we could add 3/ 4 players on permanents per season but were not in that position! The idea is the loanees are quality enough, will see us through and hopefully the rest of the team this time next year will be established and successful enough that hopefully we can add to that with a few quality permanents and move forward.



10 Jul 2018 18:13:13
Sadiq confirmed by Rangers

Odd to me why they didn't do both at the same time.


1.) 10 Jul 2018 20:30:28
I'd guess each deal has different parts that all need to be finalised legally and will get announced as soon as they were done, neither are in squad for thursday, both seem good quality, young and eager

2.) 10 Jul 2018 22:13:21
Umar Sadiq comes across as a young player looking to develop work hard and deliver success at Ibrox

3.) 11 Jul 2018 09:32:51
Who cares? What’s diff does it make?

4.) 11 Jul 2018 10:13:48
I understand from the mediathey both could be added to the Europa League squad as late"wild card "additions but may well not be as they haven't even trained with the rest of the team yet.



17 Jun 2018 08:26:39
Just seen we are being linked with Joel Campbell

Don't see it happening myself.


1.) 17 Jun 2018 09:37:36
the article I read didn't say we are linked. it was just someone saying we should go for him.

2.) 17 Jun 2018 13:57:45
Joel Campbell is dreadful better off with Naomi Campbell

3.) 17 Jun 2018 15:04:52
I was watching the costa Rica game there and he has a bit of ability. He was never arsenal quality but he was better than most people gave him credit for. Technically he was ahead of Walcott and welbeck but he never got a chance so I'm guessing his attitude isn't up to scratch. He's struggled on loan but there is a decent player in there

4.) 17 Jun 2018 15:07:37
Naomi can come and stay with me if we sign her. Wife will be sound with it.

5.) 17 Jun 2018 18:18:34
Never believe anything you read on HITC



14 Jun 2018 15:11:44
The Hummel training centre announced.


1.) 14 Jun 2018 15:32:50
That’ll do for me, no problem with that, gerrard looked the part in the new trackie 👌.
Any idea if that additional income or is that included in the shirt deal?

2.) 14 Jun 2018 15:49:25
It’s included as part of the deal which is a tad disappointing

3.) 14 Jun 2018 16:01:10
the statement reads as if its not part of the original deal.

The exciting and ground-breaking new partnership with the chevron brand has now extended to the naming rights of the 38-acre training centre, which was opened in 2001 at a cost of £14 million


could be wrong though

4.) 14 Jun 2018 17:07:26
Either way if it is included we still got more money from Hummel than anyone else was offering this would explain why.



15 Dec 2017 09:00:47
In this stint as caretaker I would definitely say Murty has shown his tactical flexibility to instantly know what he was going to do when Kenny got injured and then to bring Bates on and drop to 5 at the back was a good move. a move Warburton definitely wouldn't have done when he was manager.

Then the interview he gave after the match was refreshing, it was honest and showed how much he cares about the way things go. I think there's a chance some clubs could maybe come sniffing for him at some point.

Early days I know but The fact we are now signing a fourth young player on loan doesn't do it for me we haven't had a loan signing that has managed to do well consistently since Steven Davis (different class) to me we are now starting see that there is a lack of money and ambition if there is money then surely there is better players out there to sign than young loan players.

Not happy that I think this but for me this squad will not qualify for the group stage of the EL.

I really hope I'm wrong.


1.) 21 Jul 2018 21:00:59
Well said FB1.

2.) 21 Jul 2018 21:01:55
We are signing Juniors mate need men om the ball.

3.) 21 Jul 2018 21:12:23
We’ve spent a decent amount already and are currently bidding a reported £3 mil on Cooper not to mention the wages for Arfield and Flanagan which won’t be peanuts I think the board have backed SG pretty well so far.

Sadiq, Ejaria and Coulibaly aren’t exactly juniors look at the size of them they are big physical players.

4.) 21 Jul 2018 21:20:29
It's pretty obvious that there's a shortage of money available to get the right players in, the whole fiasco with strip sales will only hurt that some more if not sorted out promptly! But we have to live within our means this time around and if that means going down the route of loaning in players then so be it! With most of them coming from top teams, Liverpool and Roma, then you have to think to be at these clubs then they are somewhat talented footballers, and only time will tell if they can make it in the SPFL and more importantly under the pressure that comes playing infront of a full house at Ibrox!

5.) 21 Jul 2018 21:24:34
I will be surprised if we reach the group stage. too big too soon. hope i'm wrong.

6.) 21 Jul 2018 21:40:56
To be honest gerrard wouldn't be getting these young loans in if they wernt any good he obviously sees them as better than we've got i say let them loose out in croatia nab an away goal happy days.

7.) 21 Jul 2018 22:11:51
Group stages will be a stretch and all fans should be realistic- every round gives the manager a bigger budget. I for one hope we get to four round. This would be a step forward, new team / manager . persons on here think we should be walking straight into group stages . Our manager is doing his best with limited funds and having to remove dead wood - give him time and support the team.

8.) 21 Jul 2018 23:19:20
Some teams make a loss in the qualifying rounds after paying travel and accommodation so I wouldn't say we are quids in with them. There's more money to be made in the champions league group stage than winning the Europa league.

9.) 22 Jul 2018 08:06:55
We won't qualify for the group stage, this mob are far better than the last lot we played and we struggled with them. I would love to be wrong but I just don't see it and in all honesty I am only interested in domestic success. Unless you get through to the group stage and beyond it's pointless because it's just extra games extra injuries and extra pressure. I like my bread And butter.

10.) 22 Jul 2018 08:34:45
Marco c rangers not making loss, 50k, sellout, to money, 250k for getting through, catering, corporate a million a game for us.

11.) 22 Jul 2018 13:54:53
Marco c - lose money 🤔 50k full House - tv and corporate at least 1m per round. Every round a bonus and as I said helps the manager. Still feel if we sell a couple “windass and Wes” we will have the opportunity to bring in a couple more . All need to relax team will have a better balance when we sign third Centre half and able to play 3-5-2 - which will free up tav and John on the flanks.



13 Jul 2018 19:56:42
Continually see reports linking us with Joe Hart really don't see how this can be a story as we have signed shagger and Hart is majorly over rated and over paid.


1.) 13 Jul 2018 22:02:50
It's definitely nonsense. Even if we were looking for a keeper, which we obviously aren't, we wouldn't be looking at him

2.) 13 Jul 2018 22:40:34
we have other areas of the team which need addressed far more urgently than GK

said it wks ago we need better forwards - much better

really glad defence seems to be more solid and we have options in midfield but if we want to challenge, morelos and windass aren’t good enough

sorry bears that’s how i see it we need a top class poacher not a hard working grafter who holds it up well but misses sitters every wk - really hope it doesn’t cost us



12 Jul 2018 12:33:15
Tonight's game on BT sport and a sell out.


1.) 12 Jul 2018 19:13:29
On my way t stadium now guts are churning I'm a nervous wreck. Couple of pints wouldn't even take the edge off



21 Jun 2018 19:45:23
I can't seem to remember Flanagan play for Liverpool but I'm going to guess he's maybe better than tav defensively so saying that does anyone else think maybe SG is thinking he can relate tav and flan depending on who we are playing?

With tav maybe being the better attacking option and Flanagan being the better defensive option.


1.) 21 Jun 2018 20:24:10
flanagan has over 50 games for liverpool was out for long spells with injury or else he would of played a lot more a tough tackler and good in the air i'm sure he also has an england cap

2.) 21 Jun 2018 20:33:39
Not a dig FB but are you a bit happier with the board this weather?

3.) 21 Jun 2018 20:42:41
The lad ticks every box in assets you would want in a full back. Won’t be many who face him will get change out of him. He loves a tackle.

4.) 21 Jun 2018 21:50:29
I like a settled defensive line, be it a back 3 or back 4. Its a no to rotating the back line for me.

5.) 22 Jun 2018 01:05:21
Don't let's get carried away here. This lad was close to being an England first pick but has played about a dozen games in the past two years due to injury problems. He also comes with the baggage we all know about and which will surely still be affecting his mindset. I think for the first half of the season he'll be used as cover for Tavernier and John until he settles and then we'll see a lot more of him if he can stay injury free. Good luck to the boy, but don't expect too much too soon.



15 Jun 2018 15:16:25
Hardie signed new deal boy definitely deserves a chance.


1.) 15 Jun 2018 16:32:43
Not sure he's going to cut it but no harm in holding onto him for another season but tbh if we don't give him first team chances then we won't know and at the end of next season we will still be talking about him! He's about all the player he will ever be

2.) 15 Jun 2018 16:33:11
Hopefully he can score a few goals for us.
Continually out on loan.
Needs to part of the 1st Team Squad.

3.) 15 Jun 2018 16:46:11
if i’ve read this correctly we’ve extended Hardies contract by 1yr only to send him out on loan - why?

lads been out on loan 3/ 4 times already - either give him a chance in 1st team squad or move on

4.) 15 Jun 2018 17:03:56
Hardie definitely deserves a chance. What is with all those anti-Hardie posters out there? He's never had a chance in the first team. Better than Cummings and others I bet!

5.) 15 Jun 2018 17:07:46
Hardie will only be on 750-1000 per week because he is not a first team player

so even if we loan him out and next year and don't get him on a new contract i think we still get the 250k compensation because he came came through our youth ranks so we won't lose money if it does not work out

6.) 15 Jun 2018 17:28:32
Hardie has signed a year extension and will be given opportunities to play. SG believes there is a player in him and I hope the young lad grabs it with both hands as he’s taking a gamble aswel, Livi wanted to offer him a much longer contract. Fans need to get right behind this lad as all he wants to do is play for this club.

7.) 16 Jun 2018 01:54:35
The lad is still learning, some players take longer to progress .
He has a season extension then loan to give the lad more time.
Hopefully he will be more physical this season and rattles in the goals then we will see.

8.) 16 Jun 2018 02:20:42
Trev I share your confusion. If reports are to be believed and he is to go out on loan again but to a premiership club (livi and dundee are the names mentioned) then why not offer him a 2 year deal and if he does well bring him into the first team and if we don't fancy him then get money for the lad. Personally I'd like to see him get a chance at some point though.

9.) 16 Jun 2018 05:50:45
I'd rather he is given the chance to rattle in the goals for us next season!

10.) 16 Jun 2018 09:27:01
Hardie was on 2k last two seasons. Signed for 2.2k I’m hearing

How much media training does an u20 manager get as wee bear said it’s been right from the start and our last two managers didn’t exactly get on well with the media and didn’t present them self’s very well unlike Murty.

Jyf you offering I have been told you should always try things 4-5 times in life to know if you like it or not.
