Mcgregor, Davis Defoe sign new deals.


1.) 10 Dec 2019 17:47:49
Have Bournemouth done a deal to let Defoe sign in January.

2.) 10 Dec 2019 18:01:30
Doubt it, we would need to pay a fee. He can sign bosman in January.

3.) 10 Dec 2019 19:42:55
No saying Defoe is not a good player but paying thousands a week, for a guy to sit mainly on the bench imo is not good business.
Surely better using his wage on a younger striker with a sell on value.

4.) 10 Dec 2019 20:22:25
Signing a younger player would be fine but they need game time to get better/ improve. We know exactly what we're getting with Defoe. A great signing.

5.) 10 Dec 2019 20:56:59
John, I think these new deals are a good thing, rather than trying to replace like for like, as it would cost millions, plus the youngsters have been doing brilliant, right throuout the academy, point being surely some of the youngster must start getting first team football, after all they have won plenty, including playing men's teams in the tun nicks cup, and still going strong, I know a few have been training wit h the 1 st team.

6.) 10 Dec 2019 22:01:15
Paul most young players not ready yet.

7.) 10 Dec 2019 22:22:25
John, can't be much longer surely mate. loads of club are now using youngsters earlier in games. if your good enough. your old enough, but like yourself pal we will leave that to stevie g, he is doing a great job, best since sourness imo.

8.) 11 Dec 2019 00:25:25
Dont underestimate the influence Defoe has had on Morelos and probably other young strikers at the club. Morelos improvement this season has been remarkable from all aspects. His attitude and mentality have probably improved more due to the manager and his staff speaking to him but his striker play in general will have improved by having guys like Defoe about. He's not picking up thousands a week to just sit on the bench. He's a great influence about the club and still more than capable on the pitch.

9.) 11 Dec 2019 07:25:34
Every player gets paid to sit on the bench, don’t get what you’re saying, Defoe is more than a player also.

10.) 11 Dec 2019 08:29:40
Moc story goes that we r putting Defoe through coaching badges.

11.) 11 Dec 2019 08:40:04
So we pay a guy £65k a week to mentor Morelos! With the wages and lifestyle on offer one shouldn’t need any other motivation.

12.) 11 Dec 2019 02:16:03
Unfortunately I don't think many of the boys are good enough tho most of them are a lot younger than the level they are playing at. a lot of 17/ 18yo in the U23s. Hopefully with Wes and Firth contracts up at the end of the season Robby can kick on and be 2nd choice and breakthrough just like McGregor did all those years ago but unfortunately Ross isn't even getting game time at Portsmouth do t think we'll see him in a rangers shirt again.

13.) 11 Dec 2019 09:01:19
The Muppet, I don't claim to be in the know but we are not paying Defoe 65k a week. Especially not on any new deal.

14.) 11 Dec 2019 09:34:05
Defoe has agreed to take a massive paycut to play for us. He must just really enjoy playing for Rangers, you wouldn't think at his age you'd be playing for a club that's this big and also playing European football. He seems quite happy letting Morelos take the lead striker role and is happy to fill in. I think he's been a great signing he can score goals and his attitude and professionalism will be good for the guys to be around especially Alfredo.

15.) 11 Dec 2019 10:33:09
Muppet and Kyle, I know what you r saying re Defoe salary, however I’m told he has been identified as a potential replacement for gerrard in future.
I don’t think we will be paying him a salary of more than 25k.
Before people say he has never managed at any level, think, Greig, McCoist gerrard, I’m told everyone is impressed how he conducts himself.
And note my key phrase potential replacement.
We need real guys who are respected in the game.
Callum I share your view on Ross, Leeds very interested.

16.) 11 Dec 2019 12:49:44
No wonder you're called muppet, pal. £65k a week? Jog on. I suppose Davis is on £55k and Tavernieer on £50k then?

17.) 11 Dec 2019 13:52:07
John25 i was actually making the point to Muppet that he won't be on 65k a week probably no where near that as he has agreed to taking a substantial paycut. As for him being a Coach/ player this was proven to be speculation. We are offering him a contract purely on a playing basis and i don't believe he is looking to get into coaching quite yet, although this could be a possibility in the near future.

18.) 11 Dec 2019 15:05:02
Kyle my info, he starts his coach’s badges June.

19.) 11 Dec 2019 16:39:23
John25 il take your word for it, as i said it is possible in the near future however the deal he is currently getting is on a playing basis only.

20.) 11 Dec 2019 17:18:56
Don’t disagree with that, he can do badges without our permission.

21.) 11 Dec 2019 18:16:08
Hahahahah were lucky if we pay 20k of defoe 85k a week deal.

22.) 11 Dec 2019 19:59:16
Defoe can’t sign for anyone as he is under contract to Bournemouth until end of season. He can sign a Pre Contract in January for next season which he will be offered and is sure to sign.
Next years contract will not be on £65k per week but likely to be closer to £20k if even that.
He has had a great influence on Morelos and a lot of the younger players, he also knows where the net is and is very fit for his age due to Vegan diet and alcohol free lifestyle.
Brilliant signing once it’s actually done on Jan 1st onwards.

23.) 11 Dec 2019 21:02:59
John25, I was reading online that Defoe is being kept at I roc, to take the managers job when Steven Gerard eventually moves on, I think it was a blog? But was define toy a Rangers site, so I don't think it was anybody just fooling around, the writer sounded pretty sure, what's your thoughts on that pal. sorry about the typing sometimes, it's that auto spelling thing, and ime not sure how to change it back, lol.

24.) 12 Dec 2019 01:41:48
is rangers planning on entering the west of glasgow over 35s next seasons hahahahahahaha.

25.) 12 Dec 2019 09:27:11
Daisy was just about to write similar until I saw your post lol🤡.

26.) 12 Dec 2019 12:47:36
Kaney seems to live and breathe all things rangers. Posting at 1.41am😁.

27.) 12 Dec 2019 13:35:46
Mrgrumpy, aye Kane's up typing early mate, he doesn't want too miss our game tonight, lol.

28.) 12 Dec 2019 17:29:00
All these super young players we have and big teams sniffy round, when was the last time any were picked for the first team?

29.) 14 Dec 2019 17:32:22
Who you talking about mate.

30.) 15 Dec 2019 01:03:26
Counties6, young Maud's, played start of season, injured in game, can't quite remember opposition that day.



06 Dec 2019 18:58:08
Does anyone know if Morelos playing with broken wrist, allegedly happens international weekend.
Refusing to wear cast, in case it rules him out.


1.) 06 Dec 2019 20:24:02
I don't think it will be broken john with it being just strapped. Reason being that u can play with a light cast on, if it was broken I'd more expect to see that than just a strap. It certainly looks to be bothering him, saw him holding it wincing last couple of games.

2.) 06 Dec 2019 23:24:40
Would be dependent on the type of fracture and location I would guess it’s a sprained wrist he has.

3.) 07 Dec 2019 07:27:31
Cool here we go. Mine was strapped to allow me to fly.

4.) 07 Dec 2019 11:53:43
not better using aircraft to fly John rather than rely on a broken hand or wrist.

5.) 07 Dec 2019 15:02:58
Geesa u made me chuckle. Cheers.

6.) 07 Dec 2019 19:56:58
Nice 1 geesa 😂😂.



30 Nov 2019 15:36:47
Does anyone know much re Nesbit at Dunfermline. Read we r meant to be interested.
See him as another shankland who is not of the standard we need.


1.) 30 Nov 2019 19:34:11
Young good prospect but he’s not ready for that level yet like Morelos and Defoe. if we were ready to sell Alfredo when ever the time comes shankland in my opinion would be perfect young Scottish scores goals and could easly be another kris Boyd, and there’s even better news fellow bears Dave king stepping down isn’t to bad after all there’s going to be another investor to pump millions into our club and rumour has it we will be on a sound financial footing the same as what happend to Celtic and our capacity is going to be 55k all seater stadium so the club could sell 50k season tickets wich will give us the same advantage as Celtic plus ibrox is also getting safe standing put in place. Dave king has done exactly what he says back in 2015 the man deserves credit for what he’s done we will now be in safe hands and the reason I know all this I no one off the rangers youth players.

2.) 30 Nov 2019 21:36:08
I hope it's true Barry but how would one of the youth players know all that🤔.

3.) 30 Nov 2019 22:31:42
A 55k all seater stadium with a safe standing area?

4.) 01 Dec 2019 00:29:22
Southend Ranger 😂😂😂.

5.) 01 Dec 2019 09:48:59
Hes single fish championship is his level.

6.) 01 Dec 2019 10:18:45
Asd12 that’s how I see it, if at our level English clubs would be in there.

7.) 01 Dec 2019 16:15:38
Ed why do our fans have to be negative? when a player gets mentioned there either not our level or there not good enough it’s absolutley laughable did we not pluck a young striker called Alfredo Morelos for just 1 million who was playin his trade in Finland off all places for a team called Helsinki? And who would of thought he has been our top goal scorer for the past 3 seasons now and valued at 20 million so why can’t shankland or who ever not get that chance? Our fans just expect a world class striker to come in and bang in goals left right and centre we don’t have a sugar daddy bears so let’s live in the real world for a minute. does anybody remember a guy called henrik Larsson? Signed for a mere 650k from feyenoord and look how that worked out for our sisters across the road same with dembele they only paid 500k and got £20 million that’s what our clubs doing we have the same structure as Celtic now.

8.) 01 Dec 2019 16:44:09
Calling that lot our sisters is minging chat.

9.) 01 Dec 2019 18:15:31
Barry because we watch shankland and he is poor, Finland is not a league of poor players and there national team is better than ours.
Fred came with a pedigree and had scored europa league goals for them
Also his record and goals at youth level for Columbia showed he was a player
I have read your last two posts and think you are at the wind up mate.

10.) 04 Dec 2019 13:09:00
Is that Rab C Nesbit 🤔.



20 Nov 2019 15:43:56
Kamara ready to sign extended deal with pay rise.


1.) 20 Nov 2019 18:35:15
Great news!

2.) 20 Nov 2019 19:13:34
Hope your right,

3.) 20 Nov 2019 19:19:57
No he’s not and if he does it’s to try and get more money.

4.) 20 Nov 2019 19:29:02
Normally happens with a pay rise hibs boy.

5.) 20 Nov 2019 20:08:34
Great news, top player. Listen to the spoon burner trolling😂👍.

6.) 20 Nov 2019 20:53:24
Hibs boy what a walloper thing tae say 😂😂 if a players signin a new contract it genrally lncludes a pay increase ya stoater.

7.) 20 Nov 2019 21:07:45
Hibsboy jealous because hivs have to negotiate contracts in farmfoods vouchers.

8.) 20 Nov 2019 21:37:30
No he's not and if he does. That line is so funny hivboy.

9.) 20 Nov 2019 21:57:04
why wouldn't it be about getting more money hibsboy? why would we want to sell him in january when he's going to the euros in the summer?

10.) 20 Nov 2019 22:45:07
Ok . av got to say that’s priceless . no he’s not signing a new contract . and if he does it’s just to get more money? Brilliant. Hibs boy . don’t kn if you’ve been hittin the Buckie but can you tell me in the history of professional football. one player who has signed a new contract . whilst under contract . without getting more money? Class.

11.) 21 Nov 2019 04:17:50
Kamara signs a new contract on longer terms for less money!
That’s a headline right there!

12.) 21 Nov 2019 10:24:30
Playing Devils Advocate here - - but does the Hibs walloper, not mean that we could ask for more money if he is transferred based on his new contract?

13.) 21 Nov 2019 11:20:54
Bar72. I think that’s what he meant, Maybe he’s a little bit confused. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🇦🇺⚽️👍.

14.) 21 Nov 2019 13:09:54
Guys Come on, you always get a 'CRACKER' at Christmas, boom, boom. It's certainly a belter, but seriously, good news John25.

15.) 21 Nov 2019 18:03:48
Irvger I hope so.

16.) 21 Nov 2019 19:13:15
If he is to extend contract can also be to bump his price up.

17.) 21 Nov 2019 22:16:02
Cunny. Hibs boy might be confused . but he is certainly confusing the lot of us on here 🤫🥴🤪.

18.) 22 Nov 2019 10:33:57
U r right paul.

19.) 22 Nov 2019 19:02:54
Plays well at the Euros we might get diof money lol. If I remember it was 20 mil Liverpool paid.



13 Nov 2019 18:35:21
The talk re Morelos won't go away. Some sources say villa preparing 30 million bid in january.
We would need to consider. However, if I was Alf I would still wait to summer as I would not chance signing for a villa who could be relegated.
Liecster though is a serious option.
Summer I pray no sooner.


1.) 13 Nov 2019 19:50:39
If someone happens to bid that in jan then that bid would still be there in the summer.

2.) 13 Nov 2019 20:09:49
Tend to agree Paul.

3.) 13 Nov 2019 20:49:17
Talk just won’t go away? That’s what the football game is about mate, did you expect it to “go away” Morelos is highly unlikely to be here next season, he will also know he may never win a title again, and he also knows that his price ; injury permitting will rise and will be much more if he continues to score in Europe, his value; and earning potential will rise significantly, as will his suitors, so the talk won’t go away until he does, and any person who is silly enough to say ridiculous things like “ he hasn’t scored against Celtic” simply don’t know anything about football and the value of a guy like Alfie, if Larson had never scored against Rangers but scored 11 goals against quality European opposition in about a dozen games would they be saying such nonsense


4.) 13 Nov 2019 22:37:21
john25, agree Leicester looks more likely option if England is his preferred destination, although don’t believe will happen until end of season. Credit to Supercoop who predicated Leicester on here 6 months ago.

5.) 14 Nov 2019 01:43:04
So did the papers, the very next day Rodgers went south, don’t let him kid you as well, he simply mentioned every possibility, I’m still counting the shirt manufacturers who were in deep negotiations, and do you remember the warbs13 days, 56 “ our new striker names, and who can ever forget when time was running out, he actually said “ I can confirm our new striker is definitely London based “ one day later wee joe signed, from Preston
So many rumours emanate in the 2 seats beside him at ibrox, millions in fact.

6.) 14 Nov 2019 01:56:08
Leicester already said they have no interest in either Morelos or the guy who plays for the mhankies.

7.) 14 Nov 2019 07:32:30
Not hard for supercoop to predict liecster it was in all the papers bankie.
Not really a scoop when u read a paper then post the rumour.

8.) 14 Nov 2019 07:46:06
That’s exactly what he always did, then adding that “ only passing on to my fellow bears what I was told at a function last night, , he even put on here that he had “ broke the scoop “ of ohalleron, when the press knew he was coming, for weeks, he will be on here no doubt with a whole knew collection of young players, he got told about on a bus passing ibrox yesterday.

9.) 14 Nov 2019 17:20:40
I had a few run ins with coop over the years but the guy is a true ger through and through, wears his heart on his sleeve. The sooner he is back the better👍.

10.) 14 Nov 2019 21:15:07
Agree coldo, coop does contribute to the debate on here.

11.) 15 Nov 2019 06:43:20
Defo lads, I've had a couple of moments with him as well, but that's what makes the site what it is. Actuslly miss his mad use of comma's man 😂😂.

12.) 15 Nov 2019 07:41:07
Morelos is worth £30m + the potential is massive. That's why were not selling in January as his value is going north on a weekly basis.

9.) 09 Dec 2019 17:14:53
Obviously no one wants that John- why I said it's a pointless poll. Doesn't mean we can't be annoyed at the result yesterday and be allowed to challenge things we don't see right.

10.) 09 Dec 2019 17:57:37
You are right of course John . I can see stevo going down as one of the best managers we ever had . hugely unlucky yesterday.

11.) 09 Dec 2019 18:24:58
Snell, not pointless in my small brain mate, it’s galling when our own turn on Sg.
They rather praise that mob and talk with them than get behind the Gers.

12.) 09 Dec 2019 19:02:20
And for the record I'm not against Stevie G in the slightest. I just don't see many comments that are and even less agreeing with the other side? They have beat us twice now and all the going for 55 chat needs to pipe down a bit until we are actually in a position of strength.

13.) 09 Dec 2019 20:22:30
Snell I know u r not, read other posts, say he can’t take us forward, we are no better, signings terrible, can’t make decisions, my daft we poll, 20% want rid off him.

14.) 09 Dec 2019 22:40:47
John25, those 20% are the dark side, and those that are not must be delusional if they think anyone worth having would touch the job if SG left because of these comments.

15.) 12 Dec 2019 01:32:52
John, the 20 per cent are the dark side, fs most of them don't know what a bar of soap is for.

Feel like I was robbed today, on pitch and paying 450 a head, never again.



29 Nov 2019 19:25:51
Just back from Rotterdam.
Alf amazing
His record
Helsinki 62 games. 46 goals 13 assists
Gers. 118 games. , 72 goals 26 assists
Apart from maybe Messi and Ronaldo anyone know of a better record
We one day will miss this lad.


1.) 29 Nov 2019 21:04:14
John25, we will miss this lad, an incredible find and player. Money talks though my friend. We mustn't let him go for under 25 million. What do you think?

2.) 29 Nov 2019 22:01:20
I agree money talks, however as king said we need to sell players and make big money, I got laughed off this site when I said he had potential to be next Suarez, I’ve not changed my mind.
No matter what I’d knock back silly money in January, imagine if we stay in Europe beyond Xmas and he keeps scoring, I believe 50 Goals is possible over the season,

The real big boys will get interested, he will go for a Scottish record but if he hits 50, which includes anything between 15-20 Europe goals, couple more for Columbia my opinion is 30 million is not unrealistic.

3.) 30 Nov 2019 01:24:18
Point me to where King said we need to sell players and make big money?

4.) 30 Nov 2019 07:33:49
There must be a large sell on clause negotiated for a guarantee of another payment down the line, there has to be hard talk in any transaction


5.) 30 Nov 2019 08:21:48
Daisy at agm and in accounts, he says we only make 7% from player sales and the model going forward is to generate income stream from player sales as part of our business model in the future.
Do not take this as me meaning we are in trouble and need the money, it’s part of how to progress, buy cheap develop and sell on mate.

6.) 30 Nov 2019 09:55:04
It’s pretty obvious that if we want to compete at a high level in Europe and the league we need far more cash than is possible by simply playing in Scotland

Before we can sell at a profit we need to have the players who can be sold for decent money - only now do we have a few.

Without the huge losses in recent years we would not have these players and would not be challenging.

Win the league this year and we are back and can then think of selling but only if we have alternatives coming through from the youths or pipeline replacements in mind.

7.) 30 Nov 2019 18:45:01
only problem is we don't have enough high value players who we can sell on without seriously affecting our potential standing in the league and EU. i agree it is the way forward but we need to have another potential Alf lined up before we sell, hopefully that's what the scouts have done but Xmas is not the time to sell.



29 Nov 2019 09:45:41
Europa league group winners get one million.


1.) 29 Nov 2019 11:06:07
That’s great John but if the early reports are true and we are facing a 3rd investigation because of sectarian singing the same report states 3rd offence is stadium closer and that would take our home advantage away because of these uneducated idiots who continue to shame our club.

2.) 29 Nov 2019 15:39:13
Correct g4rry.

3.) 29 Nov 2019 23:11:25
