Told tonight rangers are planning a major clear out by start off next season

Davis mb 12 month deal
Balogun mb 12 month deal

Mirko ivanic
Joey veerman
Harry Souter
Danilo doehki
Jed Wallace
Zander Clark
It is expected kamara will sign deal and kent to be offered 2year extension

Mccrorie king Williamson Kelly alegria McClelland added to first team squad.


1.) 21 Sep 2021 19:40:56
Great to hear your info as always mate.

2.) 21 Sep 2021 19:43:59
Out of your leaving list, John25, I'd only keep Morelos and Barisic.
Apparently Veerman has started the season well - 4 assists in 7 matches. Do you think we will get priced out a move for him or a bigger club / more appealing league will come calling?

3.) 21 Sep 2021 19:44:40
John, that is quite a clear out. As things stand I would keep McLaughlin as I think he is better than Clark.

4.) 21 Sep 2021 19:54:13
You would expect McLaughlin to be our no1 if Greggsy decides to hang up his boots, and McCrorie as no2.
Goldson has yet to sign a new contract according to the media.
Morelos - every transfer window he is leaving.
Middleton- if he leaves then surely it would be St Johnstone.
Barisic - doubt it unless it’s a sizeable fee.
Arfield- possible as he has become a squad player but 100% committed.
Defoe - he has become a player coach?

Don’t know too much about the players listed that we are allegedly interested in bring in.

5.) 21 Sep 2021 20:06:20
Guys just info from usual source.
Mr ph, my understanding is guys need to leave to generate money to freshen squad.

I personally would keep McLaughlin
Copland as u probably know McGregor McLaughlin arfield Defoe Goldston will all be out of contract. Same as Davis and balogun so easy to move

Someone keep list see how it pans out.

6.) 21 Sep 2021 20:10:29
No reason to doubt what John25 is saying as he's mostly always bang on the money 👌I heard myself john25,
millwall right winger jed wallace is a certain signing for us either in january or the summer 🤔 Although he looks good i would prefer skov olsen TBH! I also heard zander clark and veerman 🤔.

7.) 21 Sep 2021 20:21:49
I’d cut your right hand off for Olsen SGL.

8.) 21 Sep 2021 20:22:17
John 25 - you’re info is usually spot on mate and it will be interesting to see how it pans out.

9.) 21 Sep 2021 20:30:40
Copland if I get three incoming correct I’ll be happy.

In all honesty outgoing not to difficult I’d say.

10.) 21 Sep 2021 20:44:27
John 25- we could do with a CB being brought in now due to the injury to Helander,

11.) 21 Sep 2021 20:47:09
Me too John25 👍 Skov olsen is different gravy so he is 👌 Please let us sign skov olsen 🙏🙏.

12.) 21 Sep 2021 20:48:31
I take it you got your info John25,
from your source that i know about mate 🤔.

13.) 21 Sep 2021 20:54:40
Yes SGL.

14.) 21 Sep 2021 20:58:00
Not going to happen in my opinion - no reliable source to back me up though.

Ripping up a squad like that would set us back and hand Celtic the advantage in their second year of rebuilding.

Continuity and evolution are essential to ongoing success of any team and we will be no different.

15.) 21 Sep 2021 21:07:37
DJ so do you think the out of contract players will be given new deals. If so whom.

16.) 21 Sep 2021 21:45:44
I think you're right about the outgoings John25, not too difficult to work out. Doekhi would be an outstanding signing and is the signing I want the most from what you've said.

SGL, again you mention Skov Olsen as you have done on many an occasion. I will need to take you and others opinion on him because I haven't seen much of him. I watch a helluva lot of Italian football but he doesn't seem to play much for his club team. He's only started once this season. I'm not saying that he can't be that good because he's not starting it's just I don't understand where people are getting to watch him. I'd love to see more of him to form an opinion. Like someone pointed out to me when I made this point before, another certain Danish international came to us from a situation where he wasn't playing much and that didn't turn out too bad.

17.) 21 Sep 2021 21:55:10
Good post again John, as you say most outgoing you can predict, couple of incomings are new names not heard before. Hopefully we can sell a few to generate some funds to bring in them players.

18.) 21 Sep 2021 22:08:28
Looking at list only likely to get Money for about 2/ 3 players say 15 m. Would that cover incoming, not sure who would require a fee, it will certainly be very interesting if all happen, team probably needs overhaul, new to site but good to here everyone's opinions.

19.) 21 Sep 2021 22:22:53
No idea John but if we lose all of those you mentioned it will be like starting all over again unless the recent recruits suddenly find form and become 1st pick for their positions.

We have no one to replace Morelos - Roofe had chances at the weekend but misfired in front of goal

Simpson - Very early days but yet to convince anyone

Lundstrom is recovering from a slow start but again has much to prove

Sakala has great energy but needs to settle and find his niche

Wright has been impressive in bits but needs composure

SG has always retained a belief in his core and I expect that to continue with >70% of the current match day squad to be the same next season

Just my thoughts without the benefit of your connections.

20.) 21 Sep 2021 23:24:37
Would keep McLaughlin a few players on that list would bring in cash so would expect Morelos and Barisic to bring in between 15 to 18 million.

21.) 21 Sep 2021 23:28:39
Is every player on that list coming in a free agent next year.

22.) 22 Sep 2021 00:02:37
John25 no news on Kent going.

23.) 22 Sep 2021 07:24:10
Question is, who is going to pay top dollar for Morelos?

24.) 22 Sep 2021 07:27:40
Rfc only doehki and Wallace free. I reckon rest about 15 million
Punter told Kent will be offered extension I’d be surprised if he took it. He spends all his spare time with his girl in England
Dk all guys I list would probably be first picks with exception of Clark
Also rfc we wold only get decent cash for barisic and money. Buttons for Middleton. Rest are out of contract.

I think we r relying on winning league.

25.) 22 Sep 2021 07:38:11
yip agree got to be winning the league for the 30-40m available CL money next season .

26.) 22 Sep 2021 10:22:17
I’ve seen Millwall 5 or 6 times over last season and Wallace seldom stands out in Championship games. Not for me.

27.) 22 Sep 2021 11:33:42
Thanks for the info John25. Is the plan then for Zander Clark to be #1? Disappointed that Kennedy will be going as had high hopes he might be one for the 1st team but as per your other thread seems he has shot himself in the foot with his attitude.

Excited to see King might be give an opportunity next season.

28.) 22 Sep 2021 13:09:13
John25 you’re the man for this info, however my concerns are that some of these players will need to be gone in JAN. If so that really upsets the push for the title.

I think the sooner Goodson is gone the better, I really do think his contract issue is starting to cause harm to the dressing room.

Kamaradonna would be a huge loss unless we get Veerman.

Interesting post John thank you.

29.) 22 Sep 2021 13:21:32
All seems quite placable I’d like to add a couple of names to the list 1 being Barker 2, Itten and also possibly Simpson if he doesn’t get his rubbish together cause I’m still seeing literally nothing from him doesn’t seem to excel at anything no pace, doesn’t get up well enough and seems pretty unaware at time.

30.) 22 Sep 2021 15:13:04
Highland I did not include barker as he leaves in May not part off squad
Also itten and katic are away and imo unlikely to return

Simpson will be fourth choice, cheap wages anyway.

31.) 22 Sep 2021 16:07:54
Thought defoe was staying as a coach.

32.) 22 Sep 2021 16:20:25
Google not so sure need to be gone for January, there u go kamara signed four year extension today.

33.) 22 Sep 2021 17:01:13
East Belfast yes. But not a player next season.

34.) 22 Sep 2021 17:06:33
Bankie I’ve not seen Wallace play. So I bow to your views. Time will tell.
I’m told he is very much like Arfield.

35.) 22 Sep 2021 17:14:23
Don’t know why Olsen keeps getting mentioned it was click bait well over a year ago it’s not going to happen tho I would love it too.

36.) 22 Sep 2021 17:17:07
Jed Wallace is millwalls best player by a country mile and could turn out to be a good signing.

37.) 22 Sep 2021 18:37:59
Cool storm. Is he a replacement for arfield in your opinion.

38.) 22 Sep 2021 19:31:17
He can play wide or as a number 10 so that’s probably why we are after him I don’t think he is the same type of player as arfield he likes to dribble cut inside and can put a decent cross in also 8 games 3 goals 3 assists this season He has been more central this season.

I think he will suit the way we play.

Shoots from outside the box as well but only my opinion.

39.) 22 Sep 2021 22:37:58
John 25 heard Kent was only staying up in Scotland till his misses finished uni.

40.) 22 Sep 2021 23:11:48
RFC his misses has moved to England and is now working down there.



19 Sep 2021 12:36:14
I'm told we had scouts watching both Souter brothers yesterday.
One would be a free. Harry would cost plenty IMO.
We will need at least two ch for start next season mb 3. Doehki will be signed.


1.) 19 Sep 2021 12:58:26
Which one of the brothers is the better player John? I know the boy at Hearts was seen as someone with potential, but is very injury prone. I remember another player we bought from Hearts like that. Alan McLaren anyone? Great player on his day, but always injured who sadly had to retire at only 27.

2.) 19 Sep 2021 13:05:48
IMO Harry is the better player. Would cost over 3 million.
6.5 in height scores a few from set play.

I agree re John injury record. Which would be a concern.
Could be a good third choice for free.

Likely we will lose goldston Balogun katic mb even helander.
Leaves Simpson who many won’t hgive a chance. We may just give Balogun another extension. Good cover especially if helander injury takes a longer period to clear up.

3.) 19 Sep 2021 13:47:40
When Celtic chose their second choice as manager I actually thought that angie would go for Harry souttar with him choosing to represent Australia rather than Scotland.

4.) 19 Sep 2021 14:12:26
Harry Souter's 6ft 5inch? That's a unit!

5.) 19 Sep 2021 14:13:27
Harry definitely the better of the 2.

6.) 19 Sep 2021 16:45:23
Definitely will and do need a couple of cb John, think some have left already.

7.) 19 Sep 2021 17:45:18
Just hope that when new players do arrive they re trusted to get game time straight away new signings not getting the chance with the minutes they're getting.

8.) 19 Sep 2021 18:38:10
55 by start next season we may have only Simpson left as ch.

9.) 19 Sep 2021 22:17:00
Might force us to bring in a free and play them straight away John? Just think gerrard talked about the transfer window bounce but still hasn't given our new players game time bit frustrating. though We're top of the league and playing under par just wait until we find top gera.

10.) 20 Sep 2021 09:08:34
Have you heard Doekhi will sign? I think he's a superior player to what we have. I know he's a free agent next summer.

11.) 20 Sep 2021 12:48:40
Negri I’m told he is number one target.

12.) 20 Sep 2021 13:21:07
That's great to hear, been keeping an eye on him this season, looks the real deal, was sent off yesterday though. he's scored a few goals too.

13.) 20 Sep 2021 18:01:48
Cool negri, saw he had been sent off. Do you rate him.

14.) 21 Sep 2021 07:14:52
I do, I've been keeping an eye on him since we were first linked to him, He was part of the Ajax youth set up, seems to have been capped by holland up to under 21's, He's vitesse arnhems captain at the age of 23, They finished 4th in the dutch league, 2 points above feyenoord. he's a big strong boy who can play with the bsall at his feet.

15.) 21 Sep 2021 09:05:44
Thanks negri, do you think we can get him.

16.) 21 Sep 2021 12:30:49
John heard yesterday that the Dutch lad has agreed verbally to sign a pre contract in January. My information is similar to you but big Katic could be recalled in January with it being a toss up between him and Simpson. Gerrard didn't want to sell as he wanted another look at Katic after he had games. The soutars I would be given John a wide berth because of the injuries. Harry looks cracking CB that would dominate both in the air and physically up here. Would love to see him and the Dutch lad as a pairing with young Patterson and a LB. Bassey has done well but not sure he is ready to be 1st choice just yet.

17.) 21 Sep 2021 13:38:59
Good post bellshill, i desperatly want doehki at rangers. I believe katic will be sold, does not play the football gerrard wants.

18.) 21 Sep 2021 15:57:32
Can Harry pass the ball tho not had a look at him as the way we play they need to be more than decent passers look at goldson when he passed from the back some of them are just magical.

19.) 21 Sep 2021 16:27:17
RFC I would say yes.

20.) 21 Sep 2021 21:59:09
RFC I personally hate that we use Goldson to distribute and set up our attacks. We have possibly one of the best passers of the ball in the country in Steven Davis. Too many times Goldson gets in the way. I get that Gerrard wants to play out from the back and Goldson is decent passer but nowhere near Davis level.

21.) 22 Sep 2021 11:17:51
bellshilllad83,he have a cracking left back mate, borna barisic 👌.

22.) 22 Sep 2021 13:09:15
Being 6’5 is no guarantee you are a decent player.



09 Sep 2021 12:05:45
Marko Ivanovo.


{Ed001's Note - I added this to the previous one, I hope that was correct. I will add this as well in case I got it wrong so you can let me know.}

1.) 09 Sep 2021 12:48:31



09 Sep 2021 12:02:59
Talking at golf yesterday.
Allegedly we intend to do business in January.
Doehki free
Souter. Harry
And the Eastern European midfield player

We r also looking at a goalkeeper. Marko Ivanovo.


1.) 09 Sep 2021 12:23:01
Hi John, is that the right name for the goalkeeper? Can’t find anyone on google with that name. Cheers for the info though once again! 😊.

2.) 09 Sep 2021 12:29:14
John25 was there any talk of players leaving in January

3.) 09 Sep 2021 12:45:04
Looking like potential replacements if any go John. Replacements for goldson?

4.) 09 Sep 2021 12:49:10
Eastern European midfield is marko ivanic.

5.) 09 Sep 2021 12:51:20
Cant wait for January 🙂.

6.) 09 Sep 2021 12:54:00
Ger don’t hav goal keeper name yet.

7.) 09 Sep 2021 13:18:15
@John - the Legends golf day? That golf?

8.) 09 Sep 2021 13:40:51
Ah ok I see what you meant now John. Cheers again.

9.) 09 Sep 2021 14:29:34
2blue what u mean can’t wait to January.

10.) 09 Sep 2021 14:37:23
I was not at legends golf day, RFC, sorry if I gave that impression.

11.) 09 Sep 2021 15:29:35
@John no worries, I knew one or two at it. Quite the event. And of course Walter was back which was great to say.

12.) 09 Sep 2021 17:02:08
Doekhi is the one that excites me the most. Think he could be a seriously profitable player especially with the big money premiership teams are willing to pay for a reliable CB. @john25 do you have any inside track on whether we are confident of getting him in? I would imagine there's a fair bit of interest.

Great to see Sir Walter was at the golf - he looked frail and has obviously been through it. but still delighted to see him up and about.

13.) 09 Sep 2021 17:32:29
I’m told he is a serious target.



08 Sep 2021 19:37:44
Rangers missed out in James hill last day of window, will be back in for him January.
19, a ch.


1.) 09 Sep 2021 03:01:18
One for the b team?

2.) 09 Sep 2021 06:01:33
Yes a great number of english scouts have been constantly watching the very highly rated fleetwood town centre half james hill 🤔.

3.) 09 Sep 2021 08:30:43
Liverpool and Man Utd are reportedly also interested according to the Media.

4.) 09 Sep 2021 15:12:25
A know it was a friendly but think rangers should be looking at the young keeper Real Madrid played that day though he was immense Andriy Lunin is his name would prob cost 5 million would try a loan to buy deal just incase 😂.

Stunned barker on bench, no Kelly.


1.) 22 Sep 2021 18:44:41
Same here John25.
No Simpson in the squad either?

2.) 22 Sep 2021 18:46:44
Agree john I thought barkers time was up.

3.) 22 Sep 2021 19:03:38
Nobody else with pace since Kent is out?

4.) 22 Sep 2021 19:33:58
I honestly don’t understand keeping Kelly here where he could have been on loan getting much needed game time.

5.) 22 Sep 2021 22:03:19
Stirm manager said top heavy squad to cover C.V. this season.



21 Sep 2021 14:44:10
Good to see hagi and Paterson back training with squad.
Still worrying that Jack still not ready ti train with squad.


1.) 21 Sep 2021 16:56:59
Fit Jack would be first name on the team sheet.

2.) 21 Sep 2021 17:00:40
That’s great news on both.

3.) 21 Sep 2021 17:22:09
Christ! And STILL we go with the 'Fit Jack' line
8 months since he last played.

4.) 21 Sep 2021 18:42:53
Punter only stating a FACT.

5.) 21 Sep 2021 19:29:31
I agree, “ a fit jack “ is unlikely in the extreme imo
Been saying this for a long long time, hope I’m wrong but I cannot see how he will return the same player.

6.) 21 Sep 2021 19:44:24
Yep bar 72 it will be signing maradona when Jack is fit again 😂.

7.) 21 Sep 2021 20:03:20
BAR72,Be in no doubt about this that gerrard sees jacko as his no.1 midfielder and the first name down for a midfield slot when fit and correctly so in my eyes 👀. We're a far better/ much more functional team with ryan jack in our midfield 👌
When kamara and davis have been out from time to time yes we miss them but nothing compared to when jacko is missing and i think that's been proven 🤔Jacko much more missed than kamara would ever be and that's there for all to see and i rate and like kamara, but if i was choosing between them both fit, it would be jack everytime for me without a shadow of a doubt 🤔.

8.) 21 Sep 2021 20:11:26
SGL. Jack is finished at top level, we may get 10 games this season if lucky.

9.) 22 Sep 2021 07:50:38
Impossible to say john.

10.) 22 Sep 2021 08:02:20
John25, with all due respect mate how do you know ryan jack is finished at top level 🤔If his op was a success that remember gerrard did state it was a success, then there's a good chance he'll get back to where he was 🤔Lets wait and see before jumping the gun and retiring jacko 🤔.

11.) 22 Sep 2021 09:47:55
Agreed SGL. Club have not said anything. will put money on it will get more than 10 games a season out Jacko.



20 Sep 2021 20:25:35
Ayr thrown out of cup. Rangers now away to Alloa.


1.) 20 Sep 2021 20:40:02
Good for the younger players to get a shot at a better level.

2.) 20 Sep 2021 20:52:47
So John25,that sets it up beautifully with rangers now playing against alloa, to which our former legendary captain barry ferguson is their manager 👍 Bring it on!

3.) 20 Sep 2021 20:55:53
Not the best way to go through John

But rules are rules.

4.) 20 Sep 2021 21:26:05
What happened John.

5.) 20 Sep 2021 21:37:51
The stig Ayr brought on two ineligible players in the three nil win against us.

6.) 20 Sep 2021 22:53:52
Gives the lads another chance at playing against better opponents.

7.) 21 Sep 2021 07:38:36
Don't like going through this way but rules are rules. Remember the world record number of times a certain club like no other has benefitted from the rule 😁.

19 Sep 2021 18:56:48
What is Defoe doing to justify his playing wages.


1.) 19 Sep 2021 21:06:43
Same could be said of a few mate.

2.) 19 Sep 2021 21:16:07
Marrying beautiful women and hopefully giving the best coaching our young lads could possibly get.

3.) 19 Sep 2021 21:22:11
You could say that for most of the team this season.

4.) 19 Sep 2021 22:20:23
Whats the rest of the team doing to justify their wages or are they to tired and of need of a wee lie down?

5.) 19 Sep 2021 22:59:14
Stu. The others r on the park or bench, Defoe 15-20 k not doing anything has been involved once.

6.) 20 Sep 2021 00:03:07
I am pretty sure Defoe took a massive wage cut John as he said himself he couldn’t justify a playing wage . very honourable of him I thought.

7.) 20 Sep 2021 03:10:55
didnt he take a big drop in money john?

8.) 20 Sep 2021 08:52:26
He dropped from 33 to 20.

9.) 20 Sep 2021 11:48:59
He dropped from 33 to 20 start of the season to stay at Ibrox but I think you will find he dropped again from a playing wage to a coaching wage.

10.) 20 Sep 2021 11:50:04
In saying that John I am hoping he can coach Alfredo a little better in front of goal.



19 Sep 2021 17:24:53
Sweep our best defender today by a mile.


1.) 19 Sep 2021 17:43:33
Your at it now.

2.) 19 Sep 2021 17:56:32
No I’m not. That’s how poor the other three were.

3.) 19 Sep 2021 18:11:44
I agree with you John the rest were poor he was average.
