Copland 5 would appear Gio, dof, Robertson
Tav Goldson Davis Lawrence Arfield and some others had a separate engagement yesterday.


1.) 05 Aug 2022 16:17:23
Was this in response to the Belgium game?

2.) 05 Aug 2022 16:17:56
party? ?.

3.) 05 Aug 2022 16:22:36
What about John?

4.) 05 Aug 2022 16:56:59
What would that have to do with Belgium. NRD. I think not.

5.) 05 Aug 2022 17:07:35
Some not so bright. A funeral. Remember those on here saying no one passed away.

6.) 05 Aug 2022 17:28:11
Didn’t know that they went John but a great show of respect.

As an aside for all the Lawrence haters out there he’s went straight into our dressing room and by all accounts been really good off the pitch with the young players and trying to keep our standards up. A few people will be surprised including myself because he was seen as a bad apple on here.

7.) 05 Aug 2022 17:57:59
Copland I’ve heard same re Lawrence.

8.) 05 Aug 2022 18:03:57
I’m not really surprised re Souttar shows he has support re off field issues. I think that may have been part of Goldson response.

9.) 05 Aug 2022 18:16:14
CF5 I will never take to him because what he done is horrendous and I will never support the guy and he shouldn’t be at our club and that will always be my stance.

10.) 05 Aug 2022 18:55:59
That's your perogative stormtrooper good for you ?.

11.) 05 Aug 2022 18:58:45
Well I kinda thought that it was to do with Belgium
After all that was horrendous
On here somethings are to left to b guessed at
Thats what attracts replies and others alike.

12.) 05 Aug 2022 18:58:45
You attack Lawrence but never seen you bad mouth Gaza who attacked his wife etc.

13.) 05 Aug 2022 19:21:05
John your post made absolutely no sense. I had no idea what it was referring to. doesn't say anything about a funeral. We aren't all mind readers mate.

14.) 05 aug 2022 19:23:20

"lawrence is a disgrace and its a disgrace that rangers signed him "

2 weeks ago to another poster

" you are a disgrace for calling a rangers player a disgrace "

the boy is welcome at rangers until he does something wrong at rangers.

15.) 05 Aug 2022 19:54:10
What's forgotten on these players is that they are young boys and young men. We all had the good fortune of being out of the public eye when we make mistakes. I know for a fact that when I was younger I was wild. I joined the army at 15 by 21 I'd been jailed in every continent on earth apart from South America. I'm not proud of it, it's all part of learning and growing up. Cut the boy some slack because I'm sure we have all had our off the rails moments and some will have done far worse growing up.

16.) 05 Aug 2022 20:00:32
Cool NRD, sorry about that.

17.) 05 Aug 2022 20:06:23
Good man TT. I respect the views of others but agree with your stance on this issue. I didn't really want him to sign, but sign he has so he has my support until the day he disrespects or disgraces our club (hopefully this won't happen) .

18.) 05 Aug 2022 20:07:21
No problem mate?.

19.) 05 Aug 2022 20:28:43
Bassey that’s where you are completely wrong as I
Have mentioned that on here about Gazza before kid.

Coops you are correct and that will always be my stance to a drink drive as I have lost a family member to one and every single person that drinks drives deserves the jail IMO.

TT grow up I couldn’t care any less about what you think or say as you are a sad old man.

20.) 05 Aug 2022 20:29:52
Ps that guy will never be a rangers player in my eyes.

21.) 05 Aug 2022 22:50:44
Except he is one. Can’t slate someone not backing a player then doing the same yourself. My understanding is he was in a bad place. He made a mistake. He’s entitled to a second chance.

22.) 06 Aug 2022 00:34:34
Get a grip stormtrooper! I truly feel so sorry that you lost a family member regarding a drunk driver but you can be very nasty at times pal so you can and i don't know if you actually realise it or it's just plain ignorant with you?No need whatsoever coming away with that s**t patter that TT is a sad old man! Look in the mirror pal and to coin your phrase on here regularly everyone is entitled to their opinions!

23.) 06 Aug 2022 00:52:51
Excactly Bluemark

Storm not sure what your problem is tonight bang out of order on that post too Tom thought that was really uncalled for
I’ve lost my nephew to a drink driver devasted the family
Know what I ended up doing it myself a number of years later being young and stupid and goi g through rubbish
12 month ban on my license for 11 years cost me a big job opportunity like a very big one at the time
and had to live with it
everyone makes mistakes we learn and grow well most of us anyway
life takes over

Rom is a great poster and I like his. Point of view and his responses no need for name calling bud
same as yourself respect your Jews but not the name calling


24.) 06 Aug 2022 03:20:20
Do they know who was driving? Was it Lawrence or was he just there? Also does it really matter now he's at our club and as long as he behaves himself while here I don't mind it's about club discipline. Shure given a choice before hand I wouldn't have signed him but it only hurts us if we don't back him now.

25.) 06 Aug 2022 03:44:12
What a pathetic comment Storm but not unexpected coming from the most devisive poster on here. Why the majority of your posts are designed to cause menace and upset is baffling.

26.) 06 Aug 2022 06:02:56
If you look back to TT posts to me last couple of days then you will see why but that’s ok for him to do it. If someone gives it out they need to take it back guys. He personally attack me coops and stig so it goes both ways and from now on I’ll just ignore him.

27.) 06 Aug 2022 06:03:43
Gofor he was driving yes and know I don’t need to be there to know that.

28.) 06 Aug 2022 07:07:28
Blue I would normally agree that everyone deserves a 2nd chance but this hits too close to home for me and people can tell me that he is a rangers players that’s fine but in my eyes never will be as that’s my opinion. My wife is a Celtic fan and she feels similar about the Celtic captain (he got caught drunk driving) .

Gofor does it matter now he is at our club Really so no matter what anyone has done in there past it’s ok as we just sweep it under the carpet because he has signed for us That’s what happens over in the east end mate not at rangers.

29.) 06 aug 2022 07:47:13
stig, coops, you do know i haven’t had a nasty word with either of you don’t you?

just checking it never happened guys,

30.) 06 Aug 2022 08:05:19
I did not want him I said it on here enough times.
What he done was disgusting and I believe he should have been more seriously punished.

Although! He now is a rangers player and has my fullest support and according to some people he has been nothing short of exemplary.

Rehabilitation redemption Forgiveness

3 simple concepts to take into later life storm, I have also lost a loved one to drink driving and trust me my friend this will help you move forward.

31.) 06 Aug 2022 09:13:39
I've never had any problem with you whatsoever TT12 ? You're one of the posters on here i agree with most and really enjoy your posts with your long experience following the rangers mate ? Of course even you and myself have different opinions from time to time but that's fine and healthy debate, what this superb site that the ED'S provide for us, is all about mate ???.

32.) 06 Aug 2022 09:46:22
Storm, of course you should have your own opinion but imo you should move on.

2 young guys who were foolish, involved in a car accident, panicked and ran away before thinking it through and returning 45 mins later. Slight injury to one of the passengers.

Judge decided it did not warrant a custodial sentence but issued a hefty fine and driving ban.

I’d hazard a guess that the majority of our fan base will at some time in their youth have done something stupid. Many will have driven over the limit and most will have been fortunate enough to get away with it and not get involved in an accident.

Many of our support will have committed other crimes - some much worse.

Should all of them be sent out from society without a chance of redemption?

If Lawrence ends up as player of the year having us win the double will you be sitting in a darkened room boiling over with hatred whilst everyone else celebrates?

33.) 06 Aug 2022 10:04:53
Tbh Storm you’ve gotten a lot of stick but I understand your reasons, I don’t necessarily agree with it but nobody should be having a dig at you for it. I know you’ve said you’ll never back Lawrence as a player I just hope he proves over his period of contract at us that he can change your mind.

34.) 06 Aug 2022 10:23:59
He wasn’t that young DK he was senior player too many rangers fans down playing what he did IMO and that’s only because he has signed with us.

Also TL will not win us the double on his own it’s a team game so if we win trophies I’ll celebrate like any other rangers fan strange comment from you IMO.

CF5 good post mate I am getting stick for standing up for myself and not letting anyone TT have a go at me just because he doesn’t like me I fight back and get the grief ?? but trying to draw a line under it as it’s childish tit for tat.

Ps he could score a hat trick against Celtic and he still wouldn’t change my mind what he did is just unforgivable.

35.) 06 Aug 2022 10:28:23
I didn’t mean TT had a bad word with coops and stig I was replying to coops and stig comments above I should have worded it better.

36.) 06 Aug 2022 17:15:08
Storm as per usual you take things the wrong way I was generally asking if it was him as I had no idea didn't follow up the story. just second hand info from here. Lol you really are on the defensive or attack all time can't just have a conversation with fellow bears. Chill out dude.

37.) 06 Aug 2022 17:18:59
And to be clear I did agree with you storm when rumour first broke on Lawrence I didn't want him at club either. ? Just saying now he's here we are kinda stuck and have to make best of it.

38.) 06 Aug 2022 17:19:50
And your getting stick because your so cheeky to everyone else ?.

39.) 06 Aug 2022 18:14:34
It wasn’t me that brought the stick up I only commented on it after someone else did thanks very much. I give out what I take plain and simple ?.

40.) 06 Aug 2022 19:59:57
Ps I ain’t being cheeky that’s not my fault others take it the wrong way only person I have been cheeky to is TT.

If you give it out you need to take it.



05 Aug 2022 12:54:44
Been told today hadjuk back in for katic. Circa 1 million euros.

Interest in Simpson, league one and Kelly.


1.) 05 Aug 2022 13:13:09
Great news John, hopefully we us the funds to bring in someone of quality. Any news on a new Keeper. As you know I feel that this will be our weak link this season if we have to rly on McLaughlin.

2.) 05 Aug 2022 13:16:03
I read an interview from Katic himself recently. He said he enjoyed his time on loan. Maybe this is one we can actually shift.

I did hope we would be able to sell Helander now and get some of that transfer fee back - He was an expensive buy back in the day. However, I doubt there’s any interest in him. I can see Helander playing out the year and leaving for free next summer.

3.) 05 Aug 2022 13:30:58
Berkshire the three will leave, I don’t see us making many millions. I’d say around 2.

Ozer was in frame, however McGregor resigned, I personally don’t see panic for another goalie.

Verdant can’t see anyone buying helander, I’m sure he won’t get new deal, roofe and sakala may get us good money in this window or next.

Kamara is the one imo.

4.) 05 Aug 2022 13:37:33
Any news about Sakala or Roofe going john? I think one of these two could yet leave this window.

5.) 05 Aug 2022 14:02:42
Correct - Hadjuk never stopped being interested, they just couldn't afford him. But they have now just sold two players for £4M and can invest around £500,000+ on Katic. He'll go there 100%.

6.) 05 Aug 2022 14:03:23
Mark. I think we hope to move both on.

7.) 05 Aug 2022 14:44:08
If Kamara and Roofe went, any possible names being considered?

8.) 05 Aug 2022 14:45:52

Sakala has apparently turned down the opportunity to go out on loan at 3 different clubs. He’s determined to stay at Rangers and break into the first-team regular.

9.) 05 Aug 2022 15:10:00
Verdant correct, he won’t be part of squad soon.

10.) 05 Aug 2022 15:29:04
Rfcrb I agree.

11.) 05 Aug 2022 15:34:30
KP I believe Olaru is in the frame.

12.) 05 Aug 2022 16:17:18
Thanks John, getting these guys of the payroll will be a benefit. I wish I had your confidence in our goalkeeping Department. As you know I just don't rate McLaughlin.

13.) 05 Aug 2022 16:58:21
Berkshire u only tell us ten times a day.

14.) 05 Aug 2022 17:00:02
Thanks John
From what I’ve seen, Olaru would be upgrade on Kamara.

15.) 05 Aug 2022 17:49:44
KP most definitely imo.

16.) 05 Aug 2022 18:17:36
You don’t rate JM BB i don’t think anyone on here new that mate ?.

17.) 05 aug 2022 19:26:16
bb please mate, its incessant just like ross wilson last season

we know you don't like the keeper
there no need to say it 20 times a day mate.

18.) 06 Aug 2022 03:22:31
Is it just me or are we sleep walking into the same defensive problems as last year . helander injury prone souttar injury prone katic looks to be off Simpson off our cover at back starting to look a bit thin.

19.) 06 Aug 2022 07:10:36
John out of curiosity who do you prefer as number one at our club

I think McGregor should have retired, I actually don’t know if JM is a rangers number one but willing to give him a go he is better with ball at his feet and coming off his line but McGregor is the better shot stopper.

I would love to see the young boy RMc get some game time do you know if he is going to go out on loan I know he only played a couple of times a while back but I was impressed with the games he played in.

20.) 06 Aug 2022 11:15:16
I 100% support McLaughlin, I believe McGregor should have retired. Imo McLaughlin has earned his opportunity to be a 1.
Re Mccrorie I’m told we want him to stay, as it creates an issue for Europe. Mccrorie wants game time.
If Gio throws McLaughlin under a bus, it finishes his rangers career for ever.
McGregor has arthritis issues, can’t see him here next season although I have predicted Xmas.
Suddenly we need three goalkeepers, b careful what we wish for.

Bring in ozer Develop him, then it’s a fight for one next season. Many right of guy from Cambridge, this in actual fact would be a smart move if we get Mccrorie out for game time at a high level.

21.) 06 Aug 2022 17:22:45
Do you guys not think it might be better to keep hold of sakala with the way matondo played v union? .



04 Aug 2022 21:15:17
Following mcatee to Sheffield Utd I'm told we r no longer interested in any city players.
City definitely not letting Palmer go on loan.


1.) 04 Aug 2022 22:18:30
We’ll see how Haaland is doing later in the window and if form not picked up we should move for a loan deal?.

2.) 04 aug 2022 22:25:53
we have enough players, making them a team is now the main thing, although i would have liked a poacher style player and i prefer greegs to jm, i'm happy with what we have, coaching is now the key, although i wouldn't be surprised if a surprise popped up.

3.) 04 Aug 2022 23:13:56
Tom two in yet.

4.) 04 Aug 2022 23:34:12
As long as morelos isn't sold TT12 ?.

5.) 05 Aug 2022 04:25:54
Is that cause.2 are out ?.

6.) 05 Aug 2022 06:31:16
I’d say kind off. Sakala, Barisic Kamara all possibilities.

7.) 05 Aug 2022 07:06:51
I would definitely say John need another striking option another bulldog strong type like morelos, who would and can come back into mid win the ball, and take it past defenders hold it up for our
players and make chances for themselves not just relying on feed from wingers and midfielders as and when teams do park up need option who can unlock it morelos can, aribo could.

8.) 05 Aug 2022 07:06:58
Good info John I do believe we need a new goalkeeper in desperately, surely mcgregor only received new contract so he can mentor a new younger keeper coming in. Any other reason for his renewal doesn't stand up.

9.) 05 aug 2022 07:26:45
hope you’re right john, a poacher is what i want, if there’s a keeper then he must be no, 1,, kamara i feel has wanted away for some time, so i expect rangers to accept a reasonable offer, hopefully something that would ease any potential loss of cl cash, but hopefully we can get a play off place,

10.) 05 Aug 2022 07:43:53
Tom my understanding is kamara has a 10-12 million release clause plus a small sell on.

11.) 05 Aug 2022 09:17:51
I hope the 2 new signings if they happen are of a higher quality than what we have brought in so far. Not impressed at all!

12.) 05 Aug 2022 09:19:17
Agree Tom, new keeper needed and a striker.

13.) 05 Aug 2022 09:55:56
Guys i honestly don't think we need another striker at this moment in time, unless morelos or another striker leaves ?.

14.) 05 Aug 2022 09:59:47
Why the rush for a new goalkeeper? McLaughlin is a good goalkeeper who controls his area and made a huge save on Tuesday. Isn't scared to use his feet either. If we were to buy a number one they would need to be better than him but, unlike Greegs, still good in all those areas. That would cost a lot of money and we saw with Barkas at Celtic the risk of bringing in an unknown.

15.) 05 Aug 2022 10:13:55
We have a top class goalkeeper his name is McGregor!

16.) 05 Aug 2022 12:06:43
No we don’t 2 blue he use to be but not now.

17.) 05 Aug 2022 13:06:50
We need another striker and an attacking midfield player to fill Aribos role ( that may be Tillman, I haven`t seen enough to judge ) If we can`t rely on Roofe and don`t rate Sakala a striker is a must, a proper striker that gets in the box and scores goals . We have three keepers so we`re okay there but may need a left back if Barisic goes .

18.) 05 Aug 2022 13:17:28
Good news John, like others I hope that one of them is a goalkeeper! McGregor is still the best keeper at the Club by some distance but that does not mean he should be our No. 1 (and McLaughlin is not and never will be of the quality we need) .

19.) 05 Aug 2022 13:37:50
We do not need a Striker, Colak, Morelos and any of the young guys.

We are missing the biggest thing and that's a solid CM who can impact in the final Third, Jack has been pretty bang average for months now. Kamara does jack's role better than Jack however he's being asked to be the one breaking beyond the forwards it's not his game.

If he don't sign a CM and go into the season with Jack, Lundstram and Kamara as our main CMs we've made a massive error.

20.) 05 Aug 2022 16:50:43
We do need a third striker as we showed last season. Roofe cannot be relied on to be third option and after that we have a 16 year old Lovelace and an 18 year old Ure . Weston and Alegria out on loan until January at least so they are not options. If we stop playing Lundstram in the back three we have plenty of central midfielders, Kamara, Lundstram, Jack, Davis, Arfield, Sands, McCann. A goalscoring midfielder would be a definite plus for the squad though.

21.) 06 Aug 2022 00:17:55
Roofe made 36 appearances last season

Morelos, Colak, Roofe, Sakala and if needed Tillman can play no.9.

Our problem is in that list of CMs only one who has something to offer in the final third and that's arfield.

22.) 06 Aug 2022 08:28:07
I think we should never have given McGregor a new deal. As much as I agree that Mcgloughlin is good with ball at his feet and crosses, he's not No1 material.
We should have went for the boy that was at Dundee utd.
I actually think now we could do worse than going for Liam Kelly.

Copland 5 did u or anyone else pick up on bounce game today.


1.) 04 Aug 2022 23:39:10
was wondering the same thing John especially on whether Morelos got any game time.

2.) 05 Aug 2022 00:01:56
Actually haven’t John which is weird. I’ve asked about the people I know and they seem to think we cancelled it to focus on training.

Seems Gio still thinks there’s a lot of things to be worked on especially after Tuesday.

3.) 05 Aug 2022 06:34:21
Copland I’ve since heard we cancelled it, never heard a reason.



04 Aug 2022 12:47:10
Anyone doubt English prices are crazy
Chelsea pay 22 million for villa kid that has played two games.

Ps the lad is a good player imo.


1.) 04 Aug 2022 12:57:02
I know John. And a 6 year deal as well. Huge investment in a player with potential - looks a real talent but I probably said the same about Barkley several years ago and he never kicked on.

2.) 04 Aug 2022 13:43:39
To be fair John he’s played 15 games but yeah it’s crazy still.

3.) 04 Aug 2022 14:37:02
Sky saying played two games. Copland.



04 Aug 2022 12:38:43
There you go we did offer Andy Firth a coaching job at rangers.

He wanted to countinue playing so went to wales.


1.) 04 Aug 2022 13:08:35
Question is how would 41-yo Allan McGregor feel about being coached by 26-yo Andy Firth.

2.) 04 Aug 2022 15:40:58
Shaggers a top pro.

3.) 04 aug 2022 15:48:18
he would be absolutely fine because he knows the guys a good coach, maybe allan isn’t a great coach, but every player knows a good coach when they see one
few people could grasp firth’s role at rangers.

4.) 04 Aug 2022 16:05:51
Would be as delighted as Becker Allison is suspect.

5.) 04 Aug 2022 17:24:49
Exactly Tom, amazed when so many don’t get it, Firth must have something if Liverpool and Klopp employ him and he is assisting with first team as well as academy.
