Hearing it's a tug of war between dundee and raith rovers to appoint current kelty hearts manager kevin thomson as their new manager .

Sir Walter Smith OBE

1.) 17 May 2022 10:40:56
Thankfully there is nothing interesting happening with our own club at the moment. Great news. lol.

2.) 17 May 2022 11:57:50
Eve of euro final. Kevin thomsons name could not further from my mind .

3.) 17 May 2022 19:39:22
I'll sleep better tonight, thanks coops.

4.) 17 May 2022 21:24:38
Glad i could help SirWalterMcCoist .

5.) 17 May 2022 23:43:46
Swso, did you hit the agree button when you replied to swmccoist, mate?

6.) 18 May 2022 10:31:55
Ffs it's a rumours page and I'm interested to hear about it so no need to leave sarky comments.

7.) 18 May 2022 12:32:04
Every need to leave sarky comments. All fun, don't get your wig in a twist. It's just not really relevant to what is happening right now. Take care. xx.

8.) 18 May 2022 14:51:45
It's relevant as KT is a Ranger and been tipped by many a future Gers manager anyway good luck whoever he goes too.



07 May 2022 20:35:26
Has anyone else read that although not confirmed yet, that rangers might possibly have to wear their purple jersey for the europa league final against eintracht frankfurt 🤔 It's because frankfurt are deemed the home team and their home kit is all black and there's stories stating rangers won't be able to play in our traditional royal blue home jerseys or our navy jerseys as it will clash with frankfurt's home kit. I hope to god we can play in our home kit🙏.

Sir Walter Smith OBE

1.) 08 May 2022 01:51:11
You're pretty much saying what is in the Record, then.

2.) 08 May 2022 03:31:00
Frequent reader, first time poster here. I saw the same thing in the DR, but I am optimistic we can wear our home shirt because we played away to Lyon in all blue while Lyon wore all black.

3.) 08 May 2022 07:38:53
I never saw it in the DR my friend 🤔 I read it elsewhere but you're correct the daily rag had it later on.

4.) 08 May 2022 09:01:16
I also really do hope we can play in our traditional royal blue home kit for our europa league final against eintracht frankfurt 🙏🙏.

5.) 08 May 2022 09:25:47
Haven’t read it anywhere yet but thought crossed my mind when I watched their highlights against West Ham. I wasn’t aware who was the home or away team at time.

6.) 08 May 2022 12:00:12
Apparently a suggestion of a mix of 3 strips, ? With purple being the top?

7.) 08 May 2022 13:16:12
Like Walter blue or the white top.

8.) 08 May 2022 13:31:18
Could we not wear the white anniversary top.

9.) 08 May 2022 14:15:31
Blue or white tops would be ok. Must admit I love the all blue strip.

10.) 08 May 2022 13:33:11
If we're not allowed to play in home top, can we not play in white top. That purple one its horrible.

11.) 08 May 2022 14:57:34
FFS are you woman or what? . who cares what kit we use as long as we win 🤨.

12.) 08 May 2022 16:44:06
The new papers are saying it will be purple top with white shorts and white soxs as not allowed black sox or shorts either.

13.) 08 May 2022 16:56:30
We've just played utd blue vs black.

14.) 09 May 2022 08:24:50
utter bollocks there is no kit clash so we'll use our normal home kit and frankfurt will use theirs.

15.) 09 May 2022 11:18:49
I honestly couldn’t give a toss what strip we wear as long as we are lifting that trophy up.

16.) 09 May 2022 16:20:02
Hope no the purple pansey shirt its horrible.

17.) 09 May 2022 17:02:47
Wwst, what are you talking about, the pansey shirt,?

18.) 09 May 2022 17:14:13
There is no clash with blue top and white shorts, there is with socks. All red socks sorts that, a white band in the top would be the same as 1972 and that would be class👍.



05 May 2022 05:28:21
I don't know if you've heard anything regarding kevin thomson John25 🤔 I was told last night that raith rovers very interested in thommo becoming their new manager 🤔I know how ambitious KT is as i've been up at a few kelty hearts games through an invite from KT👌He's a great fella and very down to earth with a very good coaching brain and terrific attitude 👌I wish him all the very best whether he remains the kelty hearts manager or does indeed become the new raith rovers manager 👍 He'd be a very good choice for raith rovers imo, but i do know he loves working with kelty 🤔Good luck thommo wherever you go in management 🤞.

Sir Walter Smith OBE

1.) 05 May 2022 08:16:09
Walter in the news papers.

2.) 05 May 2022 08:57:15
I personally know thommo and dean mckenzie at kelty John25 👍Thommo himself told me he had been interviewed for the kilmarnock manager job long before it hit any media mate 👍.

3.) 05 May 2022 09:06:06
Won't leave Kelty for a team in the same division.

4.) 05 May 2022 09:26:53
It was well known he was interviewed at killie, he was a clear second and some off the board wanted him instead off mcinness.
If mcinness goes to hibs, Thomson will be back in frame.
He needs to be careful because it will set him back going to a killie hibs etc as he will be sacked.

5.) 05 May 2022 09:42:07
Kelly won’t be in the same division as Raith rovers, they are safe in the championship, Kelly will go up to 1st division.

6.) 05 May 2022 14:45:23
Tjrfc, kelty in the league below raith rovers pal👍 John25,i personally know thommo very well and he's had me up at kelty a few times my friend, hand on heart mate 👍.

7.) 05 May 2022 16:54:57
KT doing the hard graft in lower leagues to get a big job down the line👍. Head down and keep learning. As John says go to early and you get Shaun Maloneid out the door in 4 months😂. You never know in 5/ 10 years could be in the dugout of the famous🧐.

8.) 06 May 2022 13:00:44
Coops if u know Thommo then ask him 👍🏻 Personally I think he will step u level and progress his coaching status which at the minute is high. His goal is at rangers and I’d avoid hibs job at all costs.

9.) 06 May 2022 19:04:48
Scotty123,i've already told you that thommo told me about the kilmarnock job and there's interest in him from raith rovers.

10.) 06 May 2022 23:35:52
Ask him about Raith then coops?

11.) 07 May 2022 15:46:48
He's told me there's interest and that's all so far Scotty123🤔.



30 Apr 2022 18:47:12
Have you heard anything John25,if connor goldson and his reps are still talking to rangers about signing a new contract or is it now completely dead and big goldson definitely away 🤔.

Sir Walter Smith OBE

1.) 30 Apr 2022 20:53:54
They spoke Friday off last week as I have already stated.

2.) 30 Apr 2022 21:52:59
Honestly the way goldson pings they passes from the back could easy play in a epl team.

3.) 30 Apr 2022 22:18:28
What's your honest gut feeling John25 🤔Do you think goldson will stay with us and sign a new contract or do you think that's it and he'll definitely be leaving us mate 🤔.

4.) 01 May 2022 00:35:22
RFC, I don't see or hear any EPL team asking after Goldson. Think he may be eating humble pie and begging Rangers for another contract.

5.) 01 May 2022 00:37:03
John25, a wee bit abrupt my man, SirWalter only asked a wee question.

6.) 01 May 2022 01:23:06
They spoke last week, John just said that and it's 50/ 50 that he's 100% definitely maybe going to sign with us.

7.) 01 May 2022 08:47:17
Baxter’s nothing abrupt. I posted last week.

8.) 01 May 2022 08:49:12
Correct Gers.

9.) 01 May 2022 12:49:24
I sincerely hope that Goldson signs a new contract. It will cost us a fortune to replace him like for like and we can't afford to weaken our team!

10.) 02 May 2022 12:19:27
Berkshire sign doehki on a free does not cost us a fortune.

11.) 02 May 2022 18:06:27
No offense rfc22 but goldson would get torn apart in EPL he is too slow and the premier League is all about pace and quick counter football.

12.) 02 May 2022 19:21:51
I tend to agree go for. I think he is a good fit for us and that we are a good fit for him.

13.) 02 May 2022 19:55:33
Berkshire I also believe Bazoer is in the frame.

14.) 05 May 2022 22:12:27
Bazoer and doekhi would be very good signings, both free transfers.



26 Apr 2022 17:57:00
Remember John25 you had heard last week that hibs were very interested in making kevin thomson their new manager mate🤔I was told myself by a big hibs shareholder that hibs are very interested in former aberdeen manager and current kilmarnock manager derek mcinnes as their possible new manager 🤔 He tells me this news comes from jackie McNamara senior 🤔.

Sir Walter Smith OBE

1.) 26 Apr 2022 18:16:41
All over media roy keane is a done deal.

2.) 26 Apr 2022 18:20:28
SirWalter, that's not going to happen mate. Billy Bowie at Kilmarnock has stated that Mcinnes will be getting the biggest spending budget ever, now thart he's got them promoted to the Premiership . I know he's looking forward to that.

3.) 26 Apr 2022 18:26:27
Told that by a killie supporter on Saturday
Honestly don’t care who they get.

4.) 26 Apr 2022 18:45:34
Neither do i John25,i'm only asking because you posted last week that you were told hibs were very interested in kevin thomson 🤔.

5.) 26 Apr 2022 19:36:51
Don't rate keane as a manager, never done anything wherever he went as a manager, I was desperate for him to get the Celtic job last summer.

6.) 26 Apr 2022 19:39:03
They are. But. He thinks theycould hamper his future ambitions.

7.) 26 Apr 2022 21:37:50
Hibs said they wanted a more experienced hand, would be surprised if thay was Kevin thomson.

8.) 27 Apr 2022 01:02:20
Kilmarnock and big budget 😂 can tell that’s a lie a mile of think dm could put killie in top 6 he’s a great manager had to rebuild Aberdeen every season.

9.) 27 Apr 2022 05:58:16
Well entitled to your opinion Rfc22 👍 However imo derek mcinnes was a good manager for aberdeen and would be a good manager for say a hibs, hearts etc, but nowhere near the level to be our manager mate🤔
He'll do well at kilmarnock also where expectations are not too high 🤔.

10.) 27 Apr 2022 06:09:24
Dont think rfc said he'd do well for us I read him saying dm is a good manager who will put Killie in top 6?

11.) 27 Apr 2022 06:30:57
Killie biggest ever budget will be about 1k more than previous. Heard killie pitch is entering last year of shelf life and Bowie has secured a plot to build training facilities so plan is to revert to grass once training facilities are completed.

12.) 27 Apr 2022 08:53:44
Mcimorals not what rangers want.

13.) 27 Apr 2022 10:15:35
Sooner Killie get rid of that pitch the better, I think theirs was the worst of all of those stupid pitches. I think McInnes will do a good job. He took Aberdeen as far as they could go without further investement. I heard yesterday that Keane was interested in the Hibs job. Would be good for our game.

14.) 27 Apr 2022 11:25:32
I still remember the days killie had the best playing surface in Scotland bar none 🤔.

15.) 28 Apr 2022 00:50:35
Ace, that hibs support would turn keane into neil lennon, mk11.

We're all gutted about the result last night but we all saw how good a game calvin bassey had He's developing into a terrific left back/ left centre half and is a machine Going forward i honestly don't know yet if left back or left centre half will be calvin bassey's best/ no.1 position So what do we all think fellow bears, do we reckon going forward will bassey's best position be left back or left centre half Would you be so kind to run a poll on this ED, if you don't mind pal, much appreciated The poll being what will be calvin bassey's best position going forward,
left back or left centre half? .

Sir Walter Smith OBE

{Ed033's Note -

calvin basse poll

1.) 19 May 2022 21:02:20
I guess Sir Walter it’s not really important if he’s excellent at both and I do think he’s excellent at both. His heading is getting better each game.

2.) 19 May 2022 21:14:46
He was an absolute colossus last night Coops.

3.) 19 May 2022 22:52:22
bassey is the only player we have that could easily command a fee upwards of 20m this summer, would be surprised if no bids are made for him this summer, that being said we need to keep him for as long as he is happy here!

4.) 19 May 2022 22:56:54
Again doesn't really matter as he will clearly be plying his trade elsewhere very shortly!

5.) 20 May 2022 02:26:38
Bar72,what makes you think big bassey willbe plying his trade elsewhere very shortly?

6.) 20 May 2022 08:26:43
I have to agree with bar72 the vultures from the EPL ate already onto Bassey and after his display on Wednesday i am reliably informed that 4 teams are preparing to put forward offers in region of £8 million to Rangers and a wage increase 8 times what he is on now .



19 May 2022 15:43:54
We won't know the scale of the rebuild under gio this summer, until we know who's going and what bids come in for our top players
I definitely think there will be a bid or bids for calvin bassey and although i don't want this young man to go it could well happen that we will sell himGoldson looks a definite departure and we could quite possibly sell alfredo, kent, aribo, kamara etc So we won't know the size of our rebuild 'till we know who we actually sell.

Sir Walter Smith OBE

1.) 19 May 2022 16:05:58
We will be doing very well if we can hold on to bassey passed the summer. 2 years left on deal tho which puts us in great postion. Just hope its all done very quickly as important CL qualifiers to play.

2.) 19 May 2022 16:07:16
Bassey is outstanding however, I think we’ve had our fingers burnt by not selling when our stock is high. If we get a very good offer, I’d actually encourage selling him to help fund a rebuild. I know John has previously spoken very highly of the other kid we have (I think from Leicester) who is similar to bassey. He really is outstanding, what a transformation from him this season.

3.) 19 May 2022 16:13:16
I think this summer we will see the business side Of Rangers. Selling players for big fees. They have talked about it coming. I also see a lot of departures. If those players are sold Sir Walter you think we could get 30/ 40 million? I know contracts are running down and that affects value.

4.) 19 May 2022 16:16:10
Erm, not sure what your point is, we won’t know what the weather is on the opening day of the season until we know.

5.) 19 May 2022 16:51:05
The point being DK19 that the size of our rebuild depends on who we sell John25,who is the other kid we got from leicester who's similar to bassey .

6.) 19 May 2022 17:09:37
Walter jonly yefeko can play lb or ch. a muck better ch
Than Bassey as he can actually header a ball.
Yefeko ch and Bassey lb. We will b in no hurry to sell Bassey.

7.) 19 May 2022 17:10:53
I think it was Johnly Yfeko and I don’t want to put words in John’s mouth I think he’s mentioned previously that this kid looks to have all the makings of a good defender like bassey. I’ve never seen him play but I’m looking forward to it.

8.) 19 May 2022 17:22:18
A significant rebuild is required and any failure on the part of the Board to ensure that whatever funds are required to ensure this will simply cause us to go backwards.
Gio needs to be allowed to bring in his own players and he also needs to be supported in retaining players like Bassey, Lundstram, Morelos and Aribo.
Those are the players that we should be building our team around.
There should be no talk about new contracts for Davis, that will not take us forward. We also need to sell those players such as Itten that simply will never do a quality job for Rangers., and no more loan signings where the players are simply not fit!

9.) 19 May 2022 17:31:47
John25,bassey has played very well as a left back and left centre half for us Which position do you regard to be his best position going forward mate .

10.) 19 May 2022 17:41:23
I’m in complete agreement with regards to the rebuild and the size of the task. I would really like Lowry, McCann and King to be part of that rebuild. Perhaps Yfeko (I’ve not seen him) and Weston as well. i'm not expecting these guys to play week in and week out but i'm sure they can bring something to the table.

11.) 19 May 2022 18:18:50
Bassey heading was better last night but would have been better out wide Bassey has no heart and he is a different player this season.

12.) 19 May 2022 19:44:45
Defo lb for me. But with coaching may be a top ch.



17 May 2022 20:23:28
"running down the wing you'll hear the rangers sing, he's james tavernier makes defenders fear'.

Sir Walter Smith OBE

1.) 17 May 2022 21:05:13
Love it Sir Walter, enjoy tomorrow.



17 May 2022 05:01:31
As a follow up to the post i posted yesterday regarding our superb captain james tavernier i would like to gauge his standing amongst rangers right full backs of yesteryear Where do all my fellow bears see tav in their list of great rangers right full backs ie in comparison to the likes of sandy jardine,
gary stevens, alex clelland, alan hutton, steven whittaker etcin all aspects of full back ability .

Sir Walter Smith OBE

1.) 17 May 2022 05:39:43
SWSO it is difficult to judge Tavernier or any other player of a bygone day because the game was completely different. However, as a defender Bobby Shearer was probably better. Of the names you mention
IMO he is probably up there with Sandy Jardine.

2.) 17 May 2022 08:01:34
There are some great names there coop but Tavernier's ability to score so many goals for a full back gives him the nod. He'd play for any EPL team in my opinion. He is also super-fit. What a player what a star.

3.) 17 May 2022 08:16:37
A smidgen behind hardline and better than the others you mentioned. Did Clelland sneak in there by mistake? .

4.) 17 May 2022 08:21:13
Sir Walter here’s my opinion, for what it’s worth. We got to the final without Morelos, we got to the final without Helander, we got to the final without Jack at times. We would not have gotten to the final without Tav!

5.) 17 May 2022 08:35:03
Tav has been the best RB at the club in my supporting lifetime which started in 1984!
Which speaks volumes as that includes England International Gary Stevens.
He will be remembered for decades and only fully appreciated when he is gone!

6.) 17 May 2022 09:25:13
I agree 100% bluegenius, I never got the privilege to see the great sandy Jardine, but in my time I have saw, stephens, wright, Cleland, porrini, ricksen god rest him, Ross, Hutton, whittaker, broadfoot and without a shadow of a doubt none of them come any were near tav, and of my honest opinion I would say he has been our best pound for pound signing in my time.

7.) 17 May 2022 09:36:16
In the Top five.

8.) 17 May 2022 09:47:04
Stevens and Sandy j miles better.

9.) 17 May 2022 10:11:04
Gary stevens and tav very very similar full backs for me Both very fit with terrific engines and total athletes .

10.) 17 May 2022 10:38:31
Sandy in Royal Blue for me, .

11.) 17 May 2022 11:37:43
Gary Steven’s best I seen but my father says jardine.

12.) 17 May 2022 11:54:48
Gary Stevens played in 2 England World Cup squads that got to the 1/ 4 final and semi finals of the world cup and Tavernier hasn't even played a friendly for England. Gary Stevens is better than Tavernier and there's not even a comparison. It's not taking anything away from Tavernier but he's nowhere near as good as Gary Stevens.

13.) 17 May 2022 15:19:26
I’m surprised coop because there’s a couple in there that Tav doesn’t even come close too, sandy obviously and Stevens played against the best players in the world regular, I also would have Hutton before him every time, but he has been brilliant, just not against the quality those guys played against, and they played a different role, all were brilliant defensive players who got forward with ease, don’t remember sandy missing many penalties, and Hutton was a machine too.

14.) 17 May 2022 21:10:51
Tt1212, yea mate,i'dagree with your views on this matter.



16 May 2022 20:23:10
I'm over the moon this hasn't happened fellow bears, but i just can't believe that no other club has made a move to try and sign our captain superb james tavernier His stats for a full back are immense with his number of goals and assists, not to mention how much of an athlete he is, with an engine to die for and always fit and available Players in general have been bought for incredible sums of money who are nowhere near tav and what he brings to the table I hope to god tav gets a testimonial at rangers and i truly think he will achieve that magical number of 10 years at rangers .

Sir Walter Smith OBE

1.) 16 May 2022 21:53:10
He could get a game at most epl teams and there must have been interest. he's a true legend for me, fully committed from day 1. If there's one man I would trust on Wed at the vital moment it would be him.

2.) 17 May 2022 15:22:13
We have no idea who has or will be in for him mate.

I'm definitely leaning to yes and let's see jacko get a good summer pre season behind him, before making any rash decisions Even if it came to keeping ryan jack fit for our bigger games i'm certainly all for giving him a new deal because he's a superb midfielder .
