Sky are reporting it now that Hagi is a done deal. Loan deal with option to buy.


1.) 30 Jan 2020 15:02:57
Awesome signing! Wow, his highlight reel is astounding. That's an inspiring signing that one. If there really is a buy option, he went for £3.5m to Genk, but his value is £5.5, which makes him quite pricey if he is a success. All the same, delighted we are his shop window for the rest of the season.

I would love to see Shankland arrive too. I think he would be a great loyal Ranger. Priceless that.

Any chance of a big name, bust the budget fella too? Am I just being greedy? :)

2.) 30 Jan 2020 15:24:10
If he is such a talent why are genk letting him out on loan?

3.) 30 Jan 2020 15:36:58
Think he will be class but please do t go buy youtube. It made pena look good. Strange that he only just signed 4 year deal for them in summer tho and already leaving onloan.

4.) 30 Jan 2020 15:44:51
Shem aye, plus we are skint an no mystery billionare as rumoured last year coming in January.

Was supposed to be a Chinese investor.

5.) 30 Jan 2020 15:53:31
Let's not get carried away just now cause of his surname. He can't get into the Genk team but if he is as half as good as his dad then he'll do well. Need a striker tho.

6.) 30 Jan 2020 16:07:43
He went to Genk for €8m according to the papers.

7.) 30 Jan 2020 16:32:08
SirStruth he has played 19 games so far for Genk, that's half the season. I can assure played decent in those games. Always reasons for loans, Hagi signing could mean Kent stays wider and more into games rather than trying to play wide but also be the creative 10. Hagi will be good signing, plus a forward then its been a good window. Last year euros he was stand out player.

8.) 30 Jan 2020 16:38:14
Can the lad play RF? 👍 Pretty sure that Chinese investor is involved with the club. He's bank rolling the wifeys football team.

9.) 30 Jan 2020 16:39:41
Hes a can fill that RW role we are crying out for and seems to have a bit of physcial strenght around him. No risk here as its just a loan.
Hopefully we go get shankland in before friday then il be happy.

10.) 30 Jan 2020 16:41:32
Bluebilly, I raised the same point about discussed investment, John25 replied saying that the investment was to be around the Spring of the year, he's normally on the ball with these sort of things. Let's just wait and see what happens before Saturday's signing deadline, none of us really know what's happening at present, we have to trust our Manager and DOF on this.

11.) 30 Jan 2020 16:41:36
Dont know much about Ianis but looks good on youtube like most players do lol. Just wondering why his club are letting him leave after only 6 months there.

12.) 30 Jan 2020 17:28:34
Hopefully he can play RF, we badly need to sort that position. 👍.

13.) 30 Jan 2020 17:56:16

3 goals and 4 assists in 14 appearances a league far better than our own.

Only 21 years of age.

Stats are decent and similarly to Ryan Kent last season, stats do not tell a players full story - Kent many times starts a move and ends without him assisting or scoring, but was vital to the passage in play.

Lets look at the positives eh.

14.) 30 Jan 2020 18:04:35
Has any saw Hagi boy play iv not but how do yous no he's a wow player.

15.) 30 Jan 2020 18:51:17
At 21 with 10 caps for Romania and a CV including Genk and Fiorentina not to mention 7 goals and assists in 14 in the Jupiler League as a bit-part player?

The only reason he doesn't play every match there is the manager just doesn't like him.

This is a baller. Make no mistake.

16.) 30 Jan 2020 19:16:16
If Hagi Jr can adapt to the rubbishty hammer throwing league he will be rubbish hot.

17.) 30 Jan 2020 19:22:56
Cheersrfcrb1872 hel do me way that cv.

18.) 30 Jan 2020 21:32:37
He is such a good player that his team loaned him out and replaced him with eboue kouasi who can't get on the celtic bench.

19.) 30 Jan 2020 21:40:29
why did his team let him go on loan and sign a celtic flop in his place,

20.) 30 Jan 2020 23:37:10
A Celtic flop in his place? He's an Attacking mid that Celtic flop is a defensive midfielder. He didn't start many games because Genk play 343.

21.) 31 Jan 2020 00:45:43
It would appear, after a failed move to Fiorentina, where Hagi wasn't afforded the game time promised he moved to Genk to play, for £3.5million.

His transfer value since then, which rises by performance stats is now £5+mil. Value is a good indicator of a player. El buffallo is currently valued around the same on Transfermarkt as Hagi, and we all know what Alfie has done to grow that value.

I am very excited about Hagi, I didn't only base my Wow on youtube. I read a wee bit about his achievements and reports on him. I'm delighted he is here. that's the kind of signing I was hoping to see in a Rangers jersey tomorrow.

Shankland next please :)

Mibbe David Silva might dae us a turn, can Stevie not get Torres to phone him? :) lol.

22.) 31 Jan 2020 09:40:31
Pulling the young lads stats up does nt tell a story, Kent’s stats last year were poor and we wanted him back big time. Players like that offer much more than just stats, they beat a man, make space for others etc. if he’s as good or better than Kent we re laughing. imagine we end up with two Kent’s basically, with a top striker in front of them. If it does nt work out he goes back. good business loan with option it’s very popular these days.

23.) 31 Jan 2020 09:49:17
Said this to a few of my pals but i think we are preparing for Morelos departure at the end of the season. i'd play Hagi in a CF role with Kent on the left and Stewart on the right and play like Liverpool play with Firminio playing CF with the pace on either side pushing forward could be quite lethal. But at this moment i think we will play our usual formation, with Hagi in the kind of Right Inside forward role playing more as a number 10. on paper we play the 4-3-3 but in game this acts more as a 4-3-2-1 with our full backs offering our width.



31 Jan 2018 13:17:21
Am I the only one thinking that this ~£8m is a lot of cash that we should take? Ok, we wouldn’t actually get the whole amount with 10% going to Helsinki and whatever the agent fees are, so maybe take anything up to 15% off any transfer fee.

What if Morelos gets a serious injury and we get nothing? What if his form just goes downhill or his attitude towards the club goes downhill - he’d be worth pennies. I think he’s a replaceable player that we need to cash in on. Even we get a loan player in to replace him until the summer.


1.) 31 Jan 2018 13:58:07
Scottyger --I bet your glass is always half empty lol

2.) 31 Jan 2018 15:11:16
Record saying that we are in talks with McBurnie from Swansea. If it comes off, then we are very close to getting a full team of bears lol

3.) 31 Jan 2018 15:23:03
Hujess, I’m not being negative, I’m thinking of the positives that this fee could bring. Just because we’re being offered £8m does not mean that he’ll be worth £12m in 6 months.

4.) 31 Jan 2018 15:24:49
Wud take mcburnie

5.) 31 Jan 2018 15:25:23
I hear Sunderland were sniffing about him in a potential loan deal till end of season when contract expires. Hope we get him his scoring record is phenomenal ⚽️🌟

6.) 31 Jan 2018 15:34:51
McBurnie isn’t out of contract until next summer so wouldn’t be loan to buy this year

7.) 31 Jan 2018 15:48:09
He’s contracted till 2019

8.) 31 Jan 2018 15:56:37
His scoring record is awful when been put out on loan. people just wanting him because he's a big Bluenose.

9.) 31 Jan 2018 16:07:31
Your missing the point cawfrc. Look at the standard of the teams he's been on loan at they are hardly dominant teams! The EPL teams have some of the best young talent in the world and McBurnie was top scorer and player of the year in the EPL u23s for a team that won its division. Being a Bear is just a bonus!

10.) 31 Jan 2018 16:53:27
Am no missing the point. Av seen him play. not for me

11.) 31 Jan 2018 17:07:10
If your judging a 21 yr old Scot from a few games in one of the best leagues in the world then I'll happily take the opinions of EPL managers, Murty and Allen over you caw. No offence.

12.) 31 Jan 2018 17:14:17
BigMarv I agree

13.) 31 Jan 2018 17:48:53
Listen if morales goes and if mcburnie or devante come in stop with the negative be positive and who ever it is give them nothan but a positive welcome the 2 players in question are very young still learning there trade so let's kick on with a good second half campaign agree bears

14.) 31 Jan 2018 18:08:09
McBurnie apparently going to Sunderland



29 Jan 2018 22:56:33
Report in the Express that Morelos is wanted by Chinese side Guangzhou Evergrande for £6m. Apparently contact has been made. I’d love him to stay, but that’s a very good offer for a player that only cost £1m.


1.) 29 Jan 2018 23:16:56
If true about the £6m then he will be gone can’t afford to turn that sort of money down

2.) 29 Jan 2018 23:18:38
Seen that.

Taking it with a pinch of salt though as the Express haven’t even got the right amount we purchased him for in the article. They say 1.5m. It was 1m as you say.

3.) 29 Jan 2018 23:36:27
Yes, if true then finances may dictate this one however I would secure an adequate replacement first as clubs will rip us off big time if they know we have received a big fee for Morelos! Also we have just now reached the stage where we have genuinely good options up top so we can’t go until the end of the season with only Cummings! Hopefully our new scouting dept. will have the next Morelos lined up!

4.) 29 Jan 2018 23:47:43
If he were to go I’d be negotiating hard btw and get it up above £7M with a sell on, peanuts to the riches of the Chinese clubs.

Also one suggestion for a replacement would be a young Turkish striker currently playing for Nimes in Ligue 2 in France, Umut Bozok, 21 years old and great potential 👍🏽

5.) 29 Jan 2018 23:49:11
would love him to go now scottyger especialy now he seems to be looking for a way out aswell could be doing with the cash would replace him with it and maybe get a new cb with the dosh but wouldn't also be botherd if we kept sqaud we have even with wilson leaving he was pure fairy of a cb for rangers class 👍

6.) 29 Jan 2018 23:49:52
Would be a decent profit - wonder how much of it is the Celtic press propaganda machine - they always like a bad news rangers story the day Celtic have something to crow about

7.) 30 Jan 2018 00:03:30
Replace him with Devante Cole Chris Cadden and a new CB and that could be money well spent

8.) 30 Jan 2018 00:41:18
I see various are now reporting we’ve knocked back 5. And we’ve been now offered 6.5m.

We should be holding out for 10m or as close as we can get to that. These clubs can afford it and if they want their man before the window closes they will bid accordingly.

9.) 30 Jan 2018 01:48:11
Grab the money and run, never been his biggest fan anyway, bank the £6.5m and go out and the boy from Fleetwood and a centre half!

10.) 30 Jan 2018 04:59:50
This seems as true as the £8m that Salzburg were going to bid for Barry McKay.

11.) 30 Jan 2018 06:17:27
Well we knocked back £5.3Millon for morales from the same Chinese club and they came back with £6.5Millon with add ons, these clubs have plenty of money i would tell them another million and he's yours but I personally don't think he would move to China even for the amazing wages, he has already stated he wants a move to England Spain or Italy, he also wants in the Columbia team and he knows he won't get a sniff playing for them if he goes to China so no chance, forget the big money bears and be prepared for £2Millon maybe £3millon max from English championship club in the summer, remember a certain McKay who was being looked by German clubs for £6Million only to be sold for £500,000, less than 6 months later, so I wouldn't get to excited fellow Bears.

12.) 30 Jan 2018 06:56:35
Like the sound of Cadden Murty4me, always rated him.
If we could get in hI’m, Souttar from Hearts £2M-£3M and a striker to replace AM then I’d do business.

13.) 30 Jan 2018 09:28:17
I'd sell, for 7.5, get mcburnie and Taylor in

14.) 30 Jan 2018 09:46:14
If this is True. Something abit off in my opinion. He will b sold. Take the cash. Pay off some debt ie loans and get a few in perm. Striker, defender and rb. That money can't be turned down.

15.) 30 Jan 2018 15:49:34
MY RWB would be Cadden who can also play further up when needed, McBurnie and Devante Cole would both be affordable with that money coming in sign them both? CB Heneghan or Bartley or Souttar or He dry would do me bearing in mind any arrival is behind Bates McCrorie and Martin unless otherwise stated by Murty

Checking for an update on Morelos. Type into Google “Morelos Beijing” (If that’s even who the team is) and all that appears is twitter links to Celtic pages! Absolutely unbelievable. actually, no, it’s very believable. and very embarrassing.


1.) 31 Jan 2018 20:11:59
Did you try writing it in Chinese?

2.) 31 Jan 2018 21:34:21
number 28 with fried rice, that's the only Chinese I know lol



31 Jan 2018 18:27:46
Ollie McBurnie signs for Sunderland. That’s the end of that one then. Next.


1.) 31 Jan 2018 18:36:13
Were did you see that

2.) 31 Jan 2018 18:47:40
Nothing on any media outlet about him signing for Sunderland - if rangers are in for him, he will join 100% . If we do loan him then would indicate Morelos is gone . Should be an interesting close to the window

3.) 31 Jan 2018 19:21:30
According to sky sports news he's off to Barnsley on loan until the end of the season.



22 Jan 2018 16:20:51
Read today that Norwich have apparently signed Kenny MacLean for only £150,000. 6 months after Rangers had reportedly offered double this amount and it was turned down as they wanted more money from us.

This goes on to solidify the fact that Scottish teams are continuously trying to rip us off.


1.) 22 Jan 2018 17:31:26
Scottyger. could it not be the fact that it appears we are lowballing initial payments and extended terms do not suit scottish clubs. it could also be a factor that we are living hand to mouth and its highly publicized we are dependent on soft loans to stay afloat. there is also the possibility of sanctions from stock exchange IF Kings appeal against the take over panel is unsuccessful. playing devils advocate i feel these clubs are only looking after themselves. and unfortunately Rangers at this time are not trusted financially. tin hat on but trying to be realistic rather than seeing everything from the blue prospective.

2.) 22 Jan 2018 18:20:53
Johnny g

Can you tell me what sanctions the takeover panel can impose on Rangers?

3.) 22 Jan 2018 18:27:20
Jimshu. Answer None. The case is solely against aking

4.) 22 Jan 2018 18:42:35
Yes that’s what I thought

5.) 22 Jan 2018 18:50:54
The sanctions are well documented if you take your head out the sand. it is called "the cold shoulder" where no financial institute, company,
Bank or any business involved in the stock market
will entertain or do business with us. and jboy17 it is against king and the three bears for working in concert to aquire the shares they have so very much ultimately OUR problem. but hey you keep believing and everything will be fine. try having a share issue whilst getting the cold shoulder!

6.) 22 Jan 2018 19:18:48
JohnnyG I am a significant shareholder 1percent. It is against king. Yes re working in concert but only he has been taken to task. Public papers go and read them

7.) 22 Jan 2018 19:35:11
Also johnnyG look at papers released by company house re rangers FC. Two individuals have what is defined as significant control at rangers. They are alister Johnston and new director Barry Scott.
They define significant control as owning or having control of 50percent of share. Despite what many think king does not control rangers.
It is my belief that we will see significant change re share holding. I may well be wrong, but significant moves involving Hong Kong based fans
Please note I'm not having a pop, this info is available

8.) 22 Jan 2018 22:17:13
JohnnyG Could be I suppose.

However, if that’s happening now then it’s possibly because we overspent on rubbish during the summer. Surely with what we spent during the summer, we’d have been able to pay out £600k to Aberdeen - they just wanted even more money at the time. Since we’ve not much of a transfer kitty available right this minute, then it seems that business is being done on the cheap until the season ticket money is available.

The Stuck. Don’t just focus on his Burnley stats. Look at the bigger picture. Watford and Derby were the teams he was scoring for. Looking at these seasons, both were high up their tables and playing attacking football, by the looks of their stats. Burnley, not so much right now. We’re an attacking him and could suit him perfectly.

C-bear Welcome to yesterday’s news haha. He’s already signed and is in full training gear at the Hummel Centre. Video online.

Ger4life He scored a lot of goals for Derby before signing for Burnley. He’s clearly not had a great time at Burnley, so long as he does it for Rangers, I’m not fussed. He can clearly score.

With option to buy apparently. This could be a good signing is he’s even half as good as his Dad.

Rick, how will Morelos’ value “stay down” just because he hasn’t scored a goal against Celtic? I highly doubt any decent European team, like Lyon, for example, are going to say “oh, he hasn’t scored against that European powerhouse, Celtic, so we’ll only offer £8m instead of £18m”.
