Rangers been linked to a young lad from athletico Madrid. Requelme, a RW.

1.) 22 Jun 2020 18:13:25
That was over a month ago bud.

2.) 22 Jun 2020 18:19:56
Mr grumpy doubt we could get him, but would be an amazing signing.

3.) 22 Jun 2020 19:18:11
Saw the youngsters play athletico and that lad looked miles ahead. Think there will be serious competition for his signature but the pull of Gerrard and offer of first team football I wouldn't be surprised if he came.

4.) 23 Jun 2020 00:34:53
With Atletico desperate to keep him and other big European clubs hovering I doubt he would come to us, would be some signing though.

5.) 23 Jun 2020 10:19:53
The lad will have more faith in simeone for his development and see him as more of a pull than Gerrard 👍.



08 Jun 2020 09:37:48
Some interesting transfer gossip today.
Rhian Brewster to rangers
Aaron hickey linked with Bayern Munich, Lazio, Chelsea and c*ltic. ( A player deemed not good enough for rangers by some on here 🤔)

1.) 08 Jun 2020 10:32:35
For me it’s not he is good enough. It’svalue for money.

2.) 08 Jun 2020 10:35:36
Dont matter who he's linked with. he's massively over hyped. Everytime he's played us he's had a shocker. Wait til he plays for a bigger club and much more pressure to perform.

3.) 08 Jun 2020 10:43:48
Put it this way, if he goes to say Bayern Munich I guarantee he will never play for the first team.

4.) 08 Jun 2020 11:45:03
He end up at smell. tic same as dykes.

5.) 08 Jun 2020 12:50:41
Signing the best young talent, that's what all big clubs try to do.
I'd be amazed if rangers weren't looking at the lad. Possibly souttar as well. Especially with hearts looking like playing in the championship.

6.) 08 Jun 2020 14:34:34
Last young talent to go for millions was alan hutton
Thats why gers should have gave a great deal to young billy gilmour the way smell. tic are doing with eduardo ayer and will cash in milions like they have with tierney van dyke etc so yes rangers should sign young taent over 4 yr deals hickey ferguson etc if not at the gers standards in 2 year move them on if at the standards or above it new deal will cost others more to sign him just like it will to sign morales or barasic just now.

7.) 08 Jun 2020 15:02:29
Billy Gilmour was not interested in rangers intr.

8.) 08 Jun 2020 16:07:28

9.) 08 Jun 2020 16:50:58
I think you will find that Gilmours parents (Dad) was the driving force behind him going to Chelsea.

The word "greed" had a big part to play.

10.) 08 Jun 2020 17:20:54
It's kinda worked out for the lad though, hasn't it?

11.) 08 Jun 2020 18:32:06
How is it greed slim Jim? Would you turn down a wage increase? An increase that included better facilities and potential for yourself too?

12.) 08 Jun 2020 19:51:20
actually slim jim right. personal knowledge. also I think intr first comment correct also, for what its worth.

13.) 08 Jun 2020 20:59:26
Dunno what games they’ve been watching but I don’t think he’s at that level. he can run yes. but he can only run if he can win the ball I honestly think every time I’ve seen him against us he was dire.

14.) 09 Jun 2020 01:06:21
Gilmour would not be the player he is now if he stayed at rangers. His parents took the decision that was right for his career. The boy hickey gets destroyed because he's had some bad games. He is 17 and that would be the case for every 17 year old. You have to judge on his better performances because consistency will come. Anyone who thinks he is a bad player based on some bad performances doesn't understand football development.



19 May 2020 18:51:18
Stephen o Donnell, rb, Scottish international, on a free?

1.) 19 May 2020 19:01:41
Hell NO have you lost your mind? Oh yea let's sign a mediocre RB worse then tavernier very clever inar 10 complete.

2.) 19 May 2020 20:23:33
R grumpy definitely no way.

3.) 19 May 2020 20:35:59
So your not keen rfc98?😁.

4.) 19 May 2020 22:22:08

Is anybody grumpy mate.

6.) 20 May 2020 09:16:26
And he is a mad celtic fan so no thanks.



14 Apr 2020 15:12:15
Apparently Patrick have had legal advice and they think Dundee's original no vote should count.

1.) 14 Apr 2020 15:55:22
its in the rules any club can change from a no vote to a yes vote but not a yes to a no vote they have 28days to do so.

2.) 14 Apr 2020 16:23:07
All clubs Knew of the procedure of being allowed a no vote to a yes but not allowed a yes vote to a no so I’d doubt that lawyers credentials?

3.) 14 Apr 2020 17:21:18
It seems dundee have released a statement saying they have now been involved in negotiations about possible league reconstruction? Now if that is the case then the whole vote needs scrapped as Dundee’s vote is now being influenced by additional in formation and options? Options that all the other clubs didn’t have? So it needs to be a remote based on all upto date proposals and procedures? Only correct way to do it?

4.) 14 Apr 2020 23:36:09
Big blue bear, can change for one and not the other, what a load of jiz, who made up these rules, this is sounder more like dictatorship every time i hear another rule that goes for some, but not for others, phew.

5.) 15 Apr 2020 00:26:18
Like other posters have said. Dundee, clearly voted no, then have been bullied or bribed, or both, To change they're vote, absolute farce only the sfa would allow. Woulfnt happen under any other orgsnisation.

6.) 15 Apr 2020 11:41:32
Paul seemingly this is company law regarding voting procedures. The main thing fir me now is the spfl late not governed by company law as they are an independent body . Also I don’t know but I doubt if all teams were notified about the no vote being allowed to change . As far as I know it was a 5 pm deadline end of
But hey who knows, it was a doc with multiple pages ( I heard 120 pages then I heard 50 ) that was to be deciphered in less than 48 hours .
Hopefully Mr Park is just waiting on a few pieces of evidence then we will react.

7.) 15 Apr 2020 12:19:32
Paul and molsgoals spfl is not a company.

8.) 15 Apr 2020 12:21:29
big blue you are correct but you forget it was submitted to a deadline not a 28 day process. the deadline for that motion was in place and votes would only be changed if the motion was readdressed. in other words still on the table. it is now because of this vote.

9.) 15 Apr 2020 13:03:12
Exactly John that was my point . so they cannot be governed by company law
We would need to check their rules on voting right enough or even the proposal they sent to member clubs . it might be in there . am sure Rangers are on it . the Patrick QC
Seems to think they are wrong.

10.) 15 Apr 2020 14:02:09
Good if we let thistle take the lead. U see iom still saying we have not raised 10 million since October.
I really can’t understand him.

11.) 15 Apr 2020 17:01:23
I’m just wondering how you can say the spfl is not a company? They employ staff they pay wages the hold a bank account they negotiate contracts so I would maybe call that a company? So if so they need to comply with basic company law? And Dundee have just released a statement stating they have not been offered enticements and both Celtic and Rangers have both acted in a professional manner.

12.) 15 Apr 2020 17:31:28
Big p they r a board not a company as defined by Companies act.

13.) 15 Apr 2020 18:23:31
John25, As far as aware The Rules and Regulations of the SPFL state that the Scottish Professional Football League Limited is a Company and refer to the Chief Executive of the Company, Also state any reference to the Act as being a reference to the 2006 Companies Act.

14.) 15 Apr 2020 19:50:53
Cool Bankie. I’ve not looked at it. Too many dying to worry too much about a game.

15.) 15 Apr 2020 20:58:29
Agree John25, stay safe.

16.) 17 Apr 2020 08:31:36
Bankie, cheers for that confirmation mate, i thought they were a company also. not that i know much about companies, but was sure they came under company, as i'd read it, somewhere.



15 Jan 2020 17:31:49
Jamie Murphy away to Burton Albion on loan. Shame I always liked him. Squad definitely needed thinning though.

1.) 15 Jan 2020 18:03:10
Should have loaned him to another SPL side though.

2.) 15 Jan 2020 18:10:16
I like him but he's now nowhere near the side just sell him same as all other guys going out on loan. Just get them off wage bill and sell them.

3.) 15 Jan 2020 18:19:36
I’m sure if we could receive a decent fee a lot of these guys would be sold. The younger players ie Middleton need games before knowing if they are anywhere near making the grade so would be hasty to allow them to go for peanuts if they turn out to be good at our level for other club.
I agree with poster who says ideally we would loan them out to other Premiership club so we can get good look at them, also let’s us know if they are capable in our league with a run of games with the added bonus they can play against that mob but not us.
This deal in particular I do find strange and felt he could play at bottom half Eng Championship team at least but if Burton are paying big portion of wages then it’s a no brainer to get him out playing.

4.) 15 Jan 2020 18:21:50
Murphy was s good signing and did a great job prior to his injury. Hope he comes good on his loan period and gets chance to resurrect career.

5.) 15 Jan 2020 18:23:24
Mikeger, maybe another SPL club didn't want him, maybe he didn't want to go to another SPL club, maybe this was the best deal for the player and the club, maybe our management team know what they're doing?

6.) 15 Jan 2020 19:44:18
I agree paul, sell them as they won't ever be good enough and the wages could be better spent👍.

7.) 15 Jan 2020 20:03:03
Coldo exactly. Murphy, grezda, herrera, docherty, polster, firth, alnwick, halliday, could all leave with no bearing on the squad.

8.) 15 Jan 2020 20:07:13
Linking up with previous manager. Think with murphy it's all about game time out of the spotlight of everything rangers.

9.) 15 Jan 2020 20:33:27
Disagree loaning him to an spfl club. The plastic pitches caused his injury in the first place so no!

10.) 15 Jan 2020 23:09:10
Murphy is better than Barker, Ojo or Jones. Wouldn’t be surprised to see him back next season if he has a good loan spell. We just couldn’t give him the games to get his fitness up, too much at stake. Agree about letting the rest go, with the possible exception of Docherty. Would be giving him the second half of the season on loan in the Championship in England to see how he handles that level, as he tore up League One. He’s not had a chance this season purely because the midfield has been so good. There’s no shame in that though, Andy King had played in a Euros and had an EPL winners medal and couldn’t shift the midfield lads despite the manager saying he was a pleasure to have around.

Rangers have posted an update on Facebook.
Rangers retail deal is with castore no one else. Sports direct will be able to sell rangers kit, through a deal with castore.
If you don't want to buy rangers kit at sports direct, buy on castore website, or rangers shop/ shops.
Stay calm 😉.



22 Jun 2020 14:31:45
If Morelos does leave this summer, we're definitely going to miss him.
I'd like to think SG has a really good replacement in mind.
We won't win anything if Morelos is replaced with Dykes/ shankland. (They might have a role to play as a squad player)
Our poor play after the winter break was not down to just Morelos. In fact I don't think anyone in the team had pass marks.

1.) 22 Jun 2020 14:59:47
Totally agree

What ever happens who comes in and leaves etc

Every player playing for the team needs to give there all this coming season

I really want us to win some silverware the league most importantly but I’ll also be happy come end of season if we can at least say we gave it our best shot played with grit and determination
Then the players can hold there heads high
As much as I moan all I want too see is the team playing there best with a willingness to win

Can’t ask for more than that 😊.

2.) 22 Jun 2020 15:24:43
I don't think anyone has said it was just down to morelos. Most people I think are just fed up with his petulance. There is no doubt he is a top goal scorer but he's no use when he is in a huff or when he is sitting in the stands. I think he needs a big target man beside him to help him against the stubborn defences in the SPL. Europe when teams come out he's fine on his own. Big dykes might be the answer but he's a gamble and in a season where we can't afford gamble's, I'd rather we signed a proven target man. 👍.

3.) 22 Jun 2020 15:56:09
In fairness only 4 players in the 1st team squad played more games than Morelos last season.

4.) 22 Jun 2020 16:02:09
In fairness you need top striker playing every game, not missing through petulance. If he eradicates that from his game he could become a top player. 👍.

5.) 22 Jun 2020 16:53:16
In fairness coldo you need ALL your top players playing at their best if you want to win things.
That includes kamara and 'the best £7m rangers will ever spend' Kent! 😉.

6.) 22 Jun 2020 17:02:13
Coldo I think we need a jelavic, hatley or on his day cousin type.

7.) 22 Jun 2020 17:31:47
Correct Mr Grumpy 👍
And the best CH at the club not making an arse of things at the back along with the other CH’s👍
And other’s not losing form👍
And the occasional change in tactics wouldn’t go amiss👍
And I think that’s enough thumbs up for tonight 😉👍.

8.) 22 Jun 2020 17:38:04
I totally agree bgate w! We need a different styled striker for especially against the so called smaller teams, because although we all like to see very easy on the eye, total attacking football, there's games when sometimes you just have to change and go long, to get the 3 points. I honestly think bringing dykes in for a relatively low transfer fee, is a no brainer for me and its a small gamble. I'm not saying dykes to replace morelos, if he was sold, i'm talking about a different target type striker we need within our squad. If we did sign dykes and i truly think we will, he'll get game time against certain teams in the scottish league and this will keep all our strikers fresh into the bargain. there's games if we're being honest, that will suit dykes starting for us. At the moment we haven't got that target man option up top. Big dykes IMHO would be a good signing for us.

9.) 22 Jun 2020 18:21:17
The occasional change in tactics would be a god send to be fair, would allow our better players to flourish. Would it be asking too much to play them in their right position aswell🤦‍♂️. Don't want to put too much pressure on Gerrard. 👍.

Ugly attire dominated by the sponsor's name and those horrendous big dots.

7.) 15 Jun 2020 06:44:12
I must admit first impressions of training kit, it looks poor, might look better on, folded up maybe does not give clear indication, but not overly impressed so far, looks like print would come off aswell.

Morelos is our best player.
IF he goes this summer, we'll do very well to get in a striker that scores the amount he has.

Mccrorie, docherty, Murphy, even Jones are all good enough to play a part in our squad this season.
