I believe there are three places up for grabs in Seville now. Our back five (including Greegs) is an automatic pick, along with Aribo, Kent and Lundstram. You could make a case for another six or seven, but who knows what Gio will decide? Interesting thought.


1.) 11 May 2022 23:20:05
For me it will be same as last match. Think only change could be Scott wright.

2.) 12 May 2022 05:46:25
If jacko is fit he most definitely plays against frankfurt also tavsonloyal 🤔.

3.) 12 May 2022 05:54:09
Lowry for wright would be my only change.

4.) 12 May 2022 06:30:53
Is it too big a game for Lowry at this point, I know Frankfurt are a far bigger test than county but I thought the kid strolled it last night, he’s going to be massive for us.

5.) 12 May 2022 06:33:02
Is jack injured or being rested? He will play if he's being rested.

6.) 12 May 2022 09:13:16
Paul I'd love to see him and lundstrum playing in both finals, those two work great together.

7.) 12 May 2022 09:56:52
Injured Paul, but Gio says good chance for Seville.

8.) 12 May 2022 10:39:20
Jack is injured. Gio said last night better chance of making it than roofe.

9.) 12 May 2022 11:28:13
Big decisions for gvb next week, we need players not only fit but also with match sharpness, not sure I'd play roofe even if he is fit, he'd be lacking match sharpness.

10.) 12 May 2022 11:32:06
Just seen john gio said he should be available. Great news.

11.) 12 May 2022 12:00:35
Jack is a big one if fit. Be interesting to see what he does around Ramsey and Roofe as that’s the big decision.

Then between Sakala and Wright possibly.

12.) 12 May 2022 12:15:17
Gio might well spring a surprise or two for this game. i'm not sure that Wright will get a start in fact the Manchester United might be thrown in!

13.) 12 May 2022 12:56:13
Coops, I agree all the way about Jacko, I just feared he wouldn't make it but it seems he might after all. That's nine starters. The last two places I think will go to either Ramsey, Roofe, Sakala or Wright, depending on fitness calls.

14.) 12 May 2022 13:31:41
Tavs. I believe kamara starts.

15.) 12 May 2022 14:25:28
If roofes no fit fur the final i'd hope we get rid end of season we can't afford 1st aiders.

16.) 12 May 2022 14:55:01
We will so would u also get rid helander Jack

Roofe has many more minutes than Jack.



20 Apr 2022 01:27:43
Speaking to a young Dutch winger who is available on a Bosman? Any ideas?


1.) 20 Apr 2022 07:16:40
Is it the boy from Leeds perhaps? Summerville? I think he might have another year right enough.

2.) 20 Apr 2022 09:23:52
Really hope we sign summerville.

3.) 21 Apr 2022 09:26:57
Headless chicken no thanks 🇬🇧🇬🇧.



15 Apr 2022 20:16:55
Just got this txt from an old friend:
"I was down the football ground today and the story is that if we get promotion we're coming after your captain to lead Bournemouth. Last night confirmed to Scott Parker that Tavernier would be an ideal signing, great age, great player and we'll get him for about £7m. "

Now all this is totally a rumour but that's the story, guys.


1.) 15 Apr 2022 21:15:54
6 goals 2 assists 11 games in europa league 1nd his stats in the league say it all think it would cost just over 12 million for any team to get tav.

2.) 15 Apr 2022 21:27:02
Plausible however I think we could get a bit more based on his goals and assists.

3.) 15 Apr 2022 21:35:20
Would 7m be enough? I know he is 30 but I would be looking for slightly more than the 7.

4.) 15 Apr 2022 21:52:17
My record (for an ex-journalist) isn't great for rumours, and I do agree he is worth more than this. It actually came from someone who knows the Redknapp family well, which is the only bit of this wee story I know to be factual.

5.) 15 Apr 2022 21:59:38
Can’t see us parting with Tav for £7m. I know he’s 30 and that’s decent money for someone of his age but how much would you need to buy someone to reproduce what he does in this day and age? I’d be holding out until it entered the ‘stupid money’ stage where we don’t have an option to refuse. Not sure he would want to go either?

6.) 15 Apr 2022 22:31:26
£10m minimum or get lost!

7.) 15 Apr 2022 23:05:13
They maybe want him but can't see it. Not nearly enough for rangers and he's not going to want a relegation battle. Don't think he's pushing to leave either.

8.) 15 Apr 2022 23:54:24
Lol NOBODY has bid anything for Tavernier in all his time at Rangers but someone did buy another RB who wrongly sat on the bench for 2 years for £12m.

Now if Tavernier is so good then why did nobody bid £12 for him? .

He is shocking defensively and that is quite a major part of being a RB believe it or not.

Nobody is going to pay 8,10 or anything like £12 for him to ship you goals every week in the EPL! He gets the p. taken out of him by Ross County!

9.) 16 Apr 2022 07:02:00
Craigmp same is said about most modern full backs now even trent at Liverpool. Its the role he plays being asked to attack more than defend. How much was wan bisaka, Shaw etc even kyle walker gets questioned defensively. Its the gamble u get with attacking full backs and Tav more than makes up for errors with goals an assists incredible.

10.) 16 Apr 2022 07:23:13
Craigmp are you sweep in disguise.

11.) 16 Apr 2022 09:59:44
Craigmp, that's quite easy to work out pal as everton paid as much for young nathan patterson because of his age and undoubted potential 🤔
Tavernier is better than nathan patterson at the moment plain and simple for me pal! I'm not saying that young patterson can't go on to be better than tav, but i could never understand why some wanted us just to drop tav and try and sell him just because patterson was a good young, upcoming talent 🤔 It's about biding your time and without a doubt tav deserved to stay as our no.1 right back with stats that he's got🤔 absolute no brainer 👌.

12.) 16 Apr 2022 10:23:24
Tav is not shocking defensively.

13.) 16 Apr 2022 10:51:13
We will miss Tav massively when he goes. The number of goals and assists he gives us will be very difficult to replace.

He does make the odd mistake at the back but the number of goals he contributes to more than makes up for that.

14.) 16 Apr 2022 11:12:47
Think we would take 7 million with his age, Although I'd rather keep him until we settle our back four. I'd keep borna bassey balogun Tav recall katic get rid of Simpson helander and get a top quality replacement for goldson.

15.) 16 Apr 2022 12:28:16
Bournemouth have about as big a fan base as Auchinleck Talbot. Unless they offered ridiculous wages i think our Captain would tell them where to go.

16.) 16 Apr 2022 13:43:07
AC21, I believe Bournemouth already pay at least two players more than £50k a week, that's more than double what we pay Tavernier. For the last three years or whatever of his paying career, that sort of money would be a huge enticement. He's not an international, he's now 30, he's a good pro who would look to take care of himself and his family as best he can. The crowds mean nothing.

17.) 16 Apr 2022 14:34:59
Exactly tavsonloyal, it’s money in bank that counts
Look what Defoe was on.

18.) 16 Apr 2022 15:08:39
Craig I feel tavernier has improved defensively and as much as I like Patterson 2 different managers have preferred tavernier so he must be doing something right.

19.) 16 Apr 2022 18:00:27
It's as clear as day to me bgate w that at this moment in time tavernier is better than patterson 🤔.

20.) 16 Apr 2022 18:42:57
For his age 7 million would be a great deal for us we ain’t getting much more 12 million is just ludicrous.

21.) 16 Apr 2022 20:35:06
We won't be getting anything for tav stormtrooper because i can't see tav leaving rangers anytime soon and i for one am glad mate 👍.

22.) 17 Apr 2022 08:29:24
I wouldn't sell tav and Tav isn't going to want to leave.

23.) 17 Apr 2022 11:54:16
We surely don't sell Patterson if any doubts over Tav long term but 7m wouldn't be enough and he's 1 we need to keep with such a big rebuild about to start.

24.) 17 Apr 2022 23:09:49
Tav for me is irreplaceable! He was our best attacking option going forward on Thursday night as well as having a generally decent game at the back. £7m doesn’t cut it for me, and before I get shot down for having blue tinted glasses on, I value Tav more than Kent, just look at the stats. Tav joint top goal scorer in EL this season, and he is a defender.



23 Jan 2022 23:23:14
Need help from some sleuths on here. Second hand information supposedly from a guy who wrote a book about Rangers last year. GVB fancies a highly experienced Dutch midfielder currently playing in England. Any ideas who this could be?


1.) 24 Jan 2022 00:41:39
Gustavo hamer.

2.) 24 Jan 2022 01:04:40
Craiggoo, that was my first thought mate, as we'd been linked with him before, but then he's a bit young to be described as 'highly experienced'.

3.) 24 Jan 2022 07:02:57
Tavs we watched Dutch boys at Huddersfield and Bournemouth in recent weeks both midfield players.

4.) 24 Jan 2022 08:52:38
I think Bournemouth boy is called mercondes.

5.) 24 Jan 2022 12:19:45
Mercondes is Danish.

6.) 24 Jan 2022 12:20:39
And Huddersfield haven’t even got a Dutch player.

7.) 24 Jan 2022 13:03:23
Thanks for that, John, maybe we're watching several, just have to wait and see.

8.) 24 Jan 2022 15:57:44
Tavs appears I’m writ u look at Copland update. Time will tell.

9.) 24 Jan 2022 17:57:41
That should say I’m wrong tavs.

10.) 25 Jan 2022 04:37:07
On Huddersfield and Bournemouth my guess would be marcondes whos main position is 10 role when he plays there seems to score for fun but not great when played outta position other guess would be Daniel sinani out on loan from Norwich having not played a game for Norwich and he's a right winger possible cheap option. That's just going off positions we need.

11.) 25 Jan 2022 06:30:33
Well it can’t be him then.



14 Jan 2022 18:02:35
Souttar just signed pre-contract.


1.) 14 Jan 2022 19:03:27
This could be one of our best pieces of business under Wilson if he stays fit. He has potential to be top top player with best years ahead of him🤞.

2.) 14 Jan 2022 19:08:08
There wasn't any doubt john souttar was signing for the famous tavsonloyal👍.

3.) 14 Jan 2022 19:09:14
Terrific signing, aggressive defender.

4.) 14 Jan 2022 19:17:54
SirWalter, you said Souter has signed a pre contract. Is there any chance we can could get him this month or is it all signed and sealed for a summer move?

5.) 14 Jan 2022 19:42:59
Hopefully he ain’t brought in to replace Goldson as he ain’t as good as him.

6.) 14 Jan 2022 19:57:15
I’m just glad Souttar knocked back Celtic to come to the champions. Why would you want to go play fit the second (possibly third) best team in the league when the championship come calling!

7.) 14 Jan 2022 20:04:41
Hearts will be stubborn Baxterboy in regards to agreeing a fee for souttar to move to us this month mate🤔It's quite possible closer to the end of january we could get souttar by agreeing a fee with hearts for him🤔If hearts ask for crazy money we just wait 'till the summer and we'll get him for free and they'll do themselves out of money💰Either way he's coming to rangers👍.

8.) 14 Jan 2022 20:06:30
I agree storm has the potential to be tho but would like goldson for another year or 2 if possible.

9.) 14 Jan 2022 20:32:17
I don’t think he has the potential to be better than Goldson I hope am wrong and I’ll get behind him but for me he doesn’t enhance our starting 11.

10.) 14 Jan 2022 20:39:16
I'd hope he replaces Balogun not Goldson. This is a massive step backwards if he's seen as a 1st 11 player and I'm actually worried for us if this is the type of player we are planning to attract.

11.) 14 Jan 2022 20:41:56
Hearts thinking of 3rd place to get europa spot if celtic or us will cup. so will want big fee.

12.) 14 Jan 2022 20:46:03
I'm not sure about how good Soutar can become, but it is great to see Scottish talent coming to Ibrox. When you look at the starting eleven there is usually only a few home bred at most. I feel it is important to have a higher number of Scots in there to get the balance right.

13.) 14 Jan 2022 21:13:01
Souttar has all the attributes to be as good a centre half and possibly better than connor goldson and i'm a big fan of goldson👌.

14.) 14 Jan 2022 21:27:57
If goldson is going then I hope we can tie up doehki for the summer. I think with balogun and helander on the road to fitness we don't need defensive reinforcements. would rather a winger came in to add a bit more power going forward n push for 56.

15.) 14 Jan 2022 21:35:05
Sir Walter the only difference is Goldson doesn't miss much football Soutter does.

16.) 14 Jan 2022 21:46:49
Souttar stay fit he’s way better than Balogun he’ll compete with Helander and Goldson for sure I honestly think he has it in him to better both! Really excited to see how he does.

17.) 14 Jan 2022 22:09:11
Already heard that Goldson has signed a pre contract with someone but yet to find out which club….

18.) 14 Jan 2022 22:15:17
Shagger, Olsen before window closes IMO 6million euros.

19.) 14 Jan 2022 22:37:41
John I think this would be the final piece as long as we don’t lose anyone else ….

20.) 14 Jan 2022 22:38:44
Oh John I hope so is this what you have been told?

21.) 14 Jan 2022 22:39:27
Bla bla bla bla the guy has signed, let’s see him play 30 games before making him down as hero or zero.

22.) 14 Jan 2022 23:04:04
Souter… top signing …. Scottish international…
Hearts fans devastated which tells its own story.

23.) 14 Jan 2022 23:11:02
Blackwood, you've heard that Goldson has signed a pre contract with another team. So someone has told you this but couldn't name the team. Have you heard what division he'll be playing in?

24.) 15 Jan 2022 01:06:44
Sir Walter, who said there was any doubt?

25.) 15 Jan 2022 02:22:39
Hope so john . could be what we are missing 👍 hope it happens.

26.) 15 Jan 2022 06:27:22
If Goldson has signed a precontract already he will become a figure of hate from all the lies he has told. Surely not that stupid.

27.) 15 Jan 2022 07:01:12
I'll not hate the guy Unbeliever, we have had great service from Connor Goldson. Are you one of these guys that say great business getting Soutter on a bosman but can't handle Goldson doing it to Rangers?

28.) 15 Jan 2022 08:43:55
Yep don’t see why he would become a hate figure for doing something that we have done to other clubs and got players in on a free.

29.) 15 Jan 2022 08:57:30
Would like to see Goldson remain at Rangers🤞.

30.) 15 Jan 2022 09:17:07
Sweep1,big souttar hasn't missed many games of late now he seems to be over his injuries mate🤔.

31.) 15 Jan 2022 09:49:58
You can't compare Soutter and his transparency in contract terms with Goldson and his, my agents dealing with it, i want to sign - he has lied continuously over resigning and i bet he never wanted too.

32.) 15 Jan 2022 10:22:41
Unbeliever why would he become a hate figure? The guy has played nearly every game for us since he joined! We have certainly benefited more from picking up free agents recently than what we have lost with players leaving on a Bosman. It’s swings n roundabouts I’m afraid which has worked very well in our favour in recent years.

33.) 15 Jan 2022 11:17:15
Sir Walter he has missed 2 games this season now that’s not a lot and wouldn’t be worried by that.

During my ins and outs at Ibrox in the 90s I got to know Jimmy Bell and, like most people, at first I thought he was a grumpy, crabbit wee sod - until I realised he was just testing me out and, like all the rest, I found out that he had a heart of gold, a wicked sense of humour and loved all who loved the Rangers. But sneakily leaving dirty kit on the laundry floor always got you a swearing! Irreplaceable.


1.) 03 May 2022 18:26:26
Met wee jimmy several times myself tavsonloyal and he had that wee glint in his eye and a wicked sense of humour. God rest his soul and he'll always be part of the fabric of our great football club and he got to live the dream. God bless the one and only wee jimmy bell and god bless his family and friends 🙏We will never forget you🙏😥.

2.) 03 May 2022 18:30:17
R. I. P. JB, Won't feel right not seeing his face on the sidelines, man was a true Blue and integral part of the club.

3.) 03 May 2022 19:24:05
Yeah Very sad day for our club RIP jimmy bell.

4.) 03 May 2022 19:55:43
Everything that’s good about our club epitomised in Jimmy Bell. Very sad day, thoughts with his family.



01 May 2022 16:20:16
Just back from my first visit to the piggery this century (last time was 1999) and, at my age, probably my last. It would have been brilliant to see a win but I'm claiming a moral victory after a great second half from a depleted Rangers team. On now to Thursday when we have bigger fish to fry.
When the manager gets to work over the summer and brings in his own players (i suspect at least four starters plus a few with potential) we will soon have the league trophy back home.


1.) 01 May 2022 16:47:41
I hope you are correct on the new players and that they are all GVB first choices! As for going to the Piggery, I sopped doing that many years ago. I found that whole area pretty horrid.

2.) 01 May 2022 16:57:34
Claiming a moral victory while we win the title. lol.

3.) 01 May 2022 17:15:44
Take your Micky mouse 2 horse race title and wee will enjoy going to seville and winning there and bringing back a proper elite trophy that will put us back in the big time.

4.) 01 May 2022 17:37:53
Where have you been bb?

5.) 01 May 2022 18:00:34
Me too berkshire. Still got the same smell as their auld midden 🤮.

6.) 01 May 2022 18:33:22
Stopped you winning it against us at home though! Enjoy borrowing our title, mind give it back next season! I know you will be busy as usual making excuses for being pumped out of European football, wouldn't it be nice for Rangers to now go eclipse your league win with. our achievements in Europe 🤣🤣🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧.



13 Mar 2022 18:06:03
I've said it since the first time I saw him, get Lowry into the first team - and leave him there. This boy is a star in the making, an explosion of energy and talent, and it is vital that he is allowed to blossom.


1.) 13 Mar 2022 18:30:41
Tavsonloyal, if you've read my comments since lowry broke into our first team squad, you will know i also rate the boy very highly 👌This is only a question for you not having a go mate but who do you drop out of our midfield to start young alex lowry mate 🤔.

2.) 13 Mar 2022 18:52:51
Agreed . but we have priorities at the moment that don't include blossoming a players career. but i Hear ya loud and clear. the boy reminds me of mixture of Ramsay . Gazza and Ian Mcmillon aka the wee prime minister . only the oldies will get that one.

3.) 13 Mar 2022 19:00:46
Csn we not just let the boy develop into the best version of himself without putting comparisons on him all the time.

4.) 13 Mar 2022 19:06:21
Walter no one gets dropped for Lowry. He needs to develop and earn a place

Deecee he at this stage is nothing like any off them.

5.) 13 Mar 2022 19:17:09
John25,alex lowry minds me a lot of bobby russell mate🤔.

6.) 13 Mar 2022 20:10:37
Every player can be dropped and certainly not guaranteed a first pick at Rangers.

7.) 13 Mar 2022 20:32:13
I don’t like comparing a young lad to previous legends, however, the way he moves and glides over the grass reminds me of a young Durrant and Jasper had a similar build to Lowry. Hope he gets some more game time but we are at the business end of the season and every game is must win and that might have an impact.

8.) 13 Mar 2022 20:49:44
Deecee, I remember the Wee Prime Minister. Class act. Inside right I recall, no.8 shirt.

9.) 13 Mar 2022 21:42:13
Sir Walter, it's not a question of who you leave out, mate, it's about who you put in. Who did Liverpool leave out for young Gerrard? Who did we leave out for young Barry? Who did Everton leave out for young Rooney? I believe Lowry is good enough to play regularly in this team. He won't be Russell or McMillan or Gazza, he'll be Lowry.

10.) 13 Mar 2022 22:12:33
Lol. sure pal --Just my take and its allowed and do you even know who the wee prime minister was. probably not. nice to see hesgoal back .

11.) 13 Mar 2022 22:41:33
U have said this b4, nothing like Russel.

12.) 14 Mar 2022 02:52:57
That's a bit unfair John. his hair do is quite similar to Bobby's 😉.

13.) 14 Mar 2022 12:03:25
Ffs Russell Ramsey Gazza and we also have had ferguson in the past 😂😂😂 it’s getting ridiculous not like any of them just let him be Lowry.

14.) 14 Mar 2022 13:11:48
All about opinions. You might not agree but no need to get wound up over it.



27 Feb 2022 22:26:07
Question; has the SFA taken the same steps as many other countries, like England and Wales, and refused to play Russia at any level and in any competition?


1.) 27 Feb 2022 22:49:47
I hope so, but it will probably be a let's wait and see.

2.) 27 Feb 2022 23:11:22
FIFA Should just come out and ban Russia from all completions, but we know that won't happen when money is concerned,

3.) 28 Feb 2022 08:01:12
The SFA are cowards as we all know, and won't make any decision which is controversial in any way. Folks, 8 minutes added time today at Easter Road, 3 minutes at Ibrox, WTF is going on.



16 Feb 2022 19:03:32
Just heard from Dortmund, weather might not suit us as the rain's a lot warmer.

Coops, I agree all the way about Jacko, I just feared he wouldn't make it but it seems he might after all. That's nine starters. The last two places I think will go to either Ramsey, Roofe, Sakala or Wright, depending on fitness calls.

I read Aribo was on £14k a week and heard he was on £10k a week, but in the end all that counts is what we offer him to extend his stay.

Kelly isn't exactly a wee boy, he's 22 and still quite a bit off first team standard. And Copland1 we didn't release Fleck, he objected to his contract being transferred to the new company in 2012, therefore engineering his own departure.

27 Apr 2022 15:36:21
John, from what I've seen I'd say McCann is the better player. As you well know, if a younger guy misses the moment it is usually gone forever, it's an incredibly tough business and Kelly has blotted his copybook for one so young. He won't play for Rangers and anything around the £700k you suggest would be decent business.
