As the new season approaches the transfer speculation and with it the speculation over the value of individual players, I think it's getting quite exciting. Last year I posted the only piece of quality information I've had for years, and it came from the brother of a director who I went to school with 50 years ago! It was regarding Morelos and he said Rangers had set their price and they were unwavering at £18.75 million, as they wanted to clear £14 million after fees to agents, lawyers, other clubs etc had been met. This has never been refuted so I am inclined to believe it is still the case.
Kamara is a £15-20 million player coming from a poor-ish league, which will impact on any fee, meaning £10 million would be a decent final outcome with strategic add-ons.
Others such as Kent and Aribo should command fees millions of pounds above their original cost to us, although a whisper I heard said the manager would find losing more than one of his top 18 players would not be acceptable as he really needs a very strong 25 to compete in the CL and to defend the league title.
A gripping few weeks to come, bears!


1.) 15 Jul 2021 16:00:11
Impossible for us to be able to name 25;A list players in our CL squad.

2.) 15 Jul 2021 16:49:13
Correct John.

3.) 15 Jul 2021 16:59:18
What are we missing to meet the criteria John25.

4.) 15 Jul 2021 17:40:35
Jzer we are missing home grown players that require to be registered in the squad. 4 from club and 4 from Nation I believe. If we can't meet the rules we have to leave a blank space instead.

5.) 15 Jul 2021 18:01:07
Jzer four players over 21, Scottish maiinly who have graduated through our academy.
Last year we only had McGregor.
In near future hopefully have Kelly Paterson and couple more.

6.) 15 Jul 2021 18:02:00
Correct park, just seen your post.

7.) 15 Jul 2021 18:05:23
Cheers parky. I never keep up with all that stuff.

8.) 15 Jul 2021 18:39:50
I didn't say the 25 would have to be named in our European squad, a bit of wishful thinking there, John25. I said the manager needs a strong 25 to compete on both fronts, the league title defence and the CL. But I suspect you knew that.

9.) 15 Jul 2021 20:13:33
Cool tav.



29 Jun 2021 02:45:10
Seems that Colombian forward Santiago Moreno is back on our radar. A figure of $3m has been mentioned.




19 Apr 2021 01:13:59
Hagi's old man is apparently seething at his son's lack of game time and that he took no part in the Celtic match, and if he has his way his boy will be on the move - again. He has supposedly approached representatives of Red Bull asking if they can do anything with one of the teams they sponsor (control) .
His dad seems to have an unhealthy influence over the lad's career. He gave him his senior debut, made him captain of the team he was managing at the time when Ianis was just 16 and he is always lurking in the background. A rumour, but it does come from Romania.


1.) 19 Apr 2021 06:59:25
Said it long ago, and il stand by it, the boy will go through many clubs in Europe, never settle or hold a position down, it will be about money,

He’s that type of player, never ever worth what some here seem to believe, mainly based on about 10 great passes.

2.) 19 Apr 2021 09:50:40
Agree tt don't think he's anywhere as good as some believe.

3.) 19 Apr 2021 10:32:18
And yet Hagi stepped up and delivered goals and assists when others were playing poorly.

4.) 19 Apr 2021 10:57:44
Tom I think you’re right however I would say I think hagi has a decent football brain and has obviously worked hard developing his skills and has a good work ethic. I just don’t think we play a system that suits him. I think he needs to be in the middle linking midfield and striker type of player. I do believe he will finish his career much traveled.

5.) 19 Apr 2021 12:59:17

6.) 19 Apr 2021 13:46:43
That’s true deeb.

7.) 19 Apr 2021 16:30:19
Think your being a little harsh on hagi TT. Don't think many on here claim he's a world beater but he's a good season.
He's played 40 games so far this season, 7 goals, 12 assists.

8.) 19 Apr 2021 16:46:41
I like Hagi great wee player at our level, can only improve and make us money same as Kent in that he’s been inconsistent and lightweight since he arrived but will improve have a belter of a season next season and move on for a decent wage for us.

9.) 19 Apr 2021 17:30:02
Stepped up? .

It’s what he is paid for, stepped up indeed, amazing what my name can conjure, he’s playing for Rangers on very big money, he can’t get a game, he’s expected to “ step up”

Do you think Rangers pay him for nothing?

Deep, who said a word about airfield?

kJ, have a lie down warrior.

10.) 19 Apr 2021 17:49:39
😂 tom.

11.) 19 Apr 2021 18:06:37
Hagi has talent that's clear to see but what the boy needs is a few seasons at the same club where he could settle in and develop. Unfortunately I think his father's influence will destroy his career. Moving for financial not footballing reasons. I think give jim couple years with us he will be a top attacking talent.

12.) 19 Apr 2021 20:47:45
What do the stats say about Hagi this season?

Hopeless or maybe integral to our goals against certain types of opposition?

Different opponents need a different approach.

13.) 20 Apr 2021 08:15:30
Hagis 21 don't forget. he has most certainly played his part since he's came to gers. Remember braga for 1. if Paterson has couple bad games we gona sell him too.

14.) 20 Apr 2021 10:18:32
Hagi is good for us, but certain games don't suit certain players. If we played a 4-2-3-1 i'd see Hagi getting more games in the No10 but in big games when we go for 3 sitting in the middle he will always be sacrificed because wide right of the forward 3 doesn't suit him (or another way of looking at it is that Aribo is a better option out there) . Gerrard got his tactics spot on against Celtic. Aribo was excellent in the forward right role and Arfield gave more bite in with Davo and Kamara in the middle.

15.) 20 Apr 2021 13:31:37
I didn’t say sell him did I?

I said he will get through plenty of clubs because he’s that type of player

16.) 20 Apr 2021 14:20:20
I think hagi will still be here next season, he will progress and play a bigger part for us, remember the likelihood is that Kent will be going to Leeds for £15+M so hagi could take his place with another young promising player coming in to challenge him.
I do see him moving the following summer probably to Italy for decent money. I then think he’ll end up in Spain after that. He’s a technically very gifted player with a great brain and good numbers many clubs would be interested in him when he finds his top form.



26 Mar 2021 15:04:37
An old colleague who has retired to Bodrum in Turkey tells me today there's a story kicking round there that Trabzonspor are interested in signing Borna Barisic. Probably just throwing names out to keep their fans happy, which is a sport in itself in Turkey.


1.) 26 Mar 2021 16:02:38
I honestly think borna barisic could well be sold because of age and sell on value will start diminishing soon 🤔I however hope to god we don't sell borna, as i truly believe he'll be one of the most difficult to replace 😂.

2.) 26 Mar 2021 16:13:40
Think personally myself borna with coming up to 30 will want a big move to a top league b4 he retires.

3.) 26 Mar 2021 17:30:34
Borna will not be leaving for a club like Trabzonspor.

4.) 26 Mar 2021 19:22:10
Dk19 how do you know lol. fact is you don't know.

5.) 26 Mar 2021 19:38:04
Just an opinion DD same as you and everyone else on here - trust that’s ok?

6.) 26 Mar 2021 20:43:20
along with a rumour? surely dk!

7.) 26 Mar 2021 22:09:19
Roma apparently where he will be gong.

8.) 27 Mar 2021 09:03:27
I think at Borna’s age he is more likely to stay to play champions league football win trophies and play for a club he loves.

9.) 27 Mar 2021 09:45:16
Like a lot of our players the Euros could be pivotal. If any perform to a high standard we might cash in.
I want all our top players to stay but we do need to be prudent and the odd £10-20m player sale strengthens our bank balance and options to replace players.
In a perfect world we qualify for Champions league group stage giving us an opportunity to strengthen again further.
How this squad has evolved value wise in 4 Windows is remarkable.
Kamara £50k, Aribo dev fee, Barisic £2m, Kent £7m umpteen brilliant Bosmans and Alfredo before that for £1m squad must be worth £50-100m easily.



07 Dec 2020 19:38:40
I have just heard that Michael Gardyne is being investigated by the SFA compliance officer for calling Buff a 'faggot'. Is this correct?


1.) 07 Dec 2020 20:25:14
It is meant to be a homophobic slur that he said.

2.) 07 Dec 2020 22:03:14
If that is the word used and the ref deemed it only a yellow card offence and the county manager knows that's what was said (he commented the ref had told him) then they both need hammered big time along with the player.

3.) 07 Dec 2020 22:25:31
I watched kettlewell being interviewed and he clearly said the ref told him gardyne was booked for dissent, nothing more.

4.) 08 Dec 2020 03:11:39
That's garbage. for 1 ref booked him for the challenge. Kettlewell also never said that but said he he will find out from the player what was said lol. some lies you spout for god sake.

5.) 08 Dec 2020 08:00:23
Daviedouglas sorry fella but before you come on and call other peoples posts garbage then should maybe check first. The ref booked VIGURS for the challenge as that was who made the challenge

Gardyne was booked for " inappropriate language"

6.) 08 Dec 2020 08:59:11
Cheers JBF.

And if you bother to listen to him after match he said the ref told him what was said and they will investigate with the player to see if that matches up.

Look up the BBC if you need any clarification. Managers do more than one post match interview Tom mate. Don't be so quick to come on and shoot folk down.

7.) 08 Dec 2020 09:23:35
daviedouglas! "That's garbage"?
No, it's not, it's a fact!
Always best to check your facts before having a pop at someone on here or it will come back and bite your backside.
When it comes to spouting garbage, I would say a good example of that was the poster who proposed we loan Morelos out to an EPL club and insert a 50 million buy out clause into the agreement. I can't remember who it was, but maybe you do? Now, that's garbage!

8.) 08 Dec 2020 12:40:11
Snell Stevie G said the ref told him he didn’t hear what the player said.

So you calling stevie G a liar or kettlewell?

9.) 08 Dec 2020 12:53:54
I'm not calling anyone a liar mate.

Like I said, read the comments on BBC from Kettlewell.

10.) 08 Dec 2020 15:07:46
Cheers BMGH


11.) 08 Dec 2020 17:52:04
Context is every thing the amount of Times that n get up ya p**f will be used in football will be loads it’s used lots n never really meant to offend I agree there is no place for it in professional football but the world is going to pc if that’s what was said then I think a yellow is fair.

{Ed001's Note - seriously?? Too PC because they object to a highly offensive and derogatory term? Then people wonder why no footballer will admit to being gay.}

12.) 08 Dec 2020 18:07:00
Watch the interview from stevie G he said the ref told him he didn’t hear what was said so one of them must be lying.

13.) 08 Dec 2020 18:29:16
I’m certainly not calling anyone here a “ liar, I’m just saying kettlewell said on the pitch that gardyne was booked for dissent and Gerard said the ref told him he didn’t know what was said . That’s wh They said.

14.) 08 Dec 2020 18:51:21
No worries Tom, like I said there are several interviews after a game so might have seen different ones. It's mainly the 50 million wonder boy that needs to check facts before jumping in with both feet.

KJ mate what interview was that with Stevie G? I saw the sky sports one where he said he didn't hear but didn't mention the ref not hearing. Maybe another one he has done?

Although someone in professional football using the term didn't see/ hear to avoid a situation wouldn't be a first mate would it 🤣.

15.) 08 Dec 2020 19:02:12
Snell, how does me saying what I seen in a pitchside interview “ shooting “ anyome down mate, the manager clearly said the ref booked him for dissent and didn’t know wwhat haws said but he would ask the player for honesty, is it ok for me to say what I seen with my own eyes?

16.) 08 Dec 2020 19:10:11
Aye fair enough Tom I apologise. I was only reporting what I saw, with my own eyes too and felt it was being dismissed.

Posted the link to the article I saw which clears up any doubt from my end, so let's call it quits and move on. Not saying you didn't see what you said you did mate 👍.

17.) 08 Dec 2020 20:02:04
No problem snell, and obviously you’re correct in managers saying something pitch side and then a different version later, , neither manager said on the pitch that the ref knew what was said, a prepared statement is often a changed version, cheers mate.

18.) 09 Dec 2020 06:39:05
No probs snell it was the sky interview straight after the game with SG.

Grand scheme of things it doesn’t matter really.

19.) 10 Dec 2020 11:55:23
I saw interview with Sg on sky u r right. Strangely gardener booked for an offensive remark.

Been out of commission for a couple of days. Can anyone tell me if Patterson was injured or just wasn't picked in the 18? If it's the latter, then that is a disgrace.


1.) 20 Sep 2021 02:35:24

2.) 20 Sep 2021 08:46:17
Tav son was fit, not picked.

3.) 20 Sep 2021 14:04:42
No disgrace that I can see.
We are only allowed 7 subs.
Balogun can cover CH and RB.
Bassey can cover CH and LB.
It makes sense to make them our defensive cover.
I expect he might feature against Livi.



18 Aug 2021 13:10:37
According to Sky, SG says we'll be signing a midfield player in the next couple of days.


1.) 18 Aug 2021 13:30:11
Where abouts tav? Can't find it on sky sports!

2.) 18 Aug 2021 13:40:06
Gerrard said in his presser we are looking to bring another centre mid in in the coming days maybe even announce something by kick off tomorrow. Exciting stuff. Just what we need with Jack being out it will allow us to keep aribo and hagi further forward.

3.) 18 Aug 2021 13:52:15
It’s on banner under spfl, his interview says hopes to hear tonight, mb announced tomorrow b4 game.
I just hope it’s his first choice Veerman.

4.) 18 Aug 2021 14:05:19
El buff I wonder if jacks op not working way we hoped.

5.) 18 Aug 2021 14:14:45
Dutch media now saying we have offered a 7 million package for veerman.

6.) 18 Aug 2021 14:23:46
It's bacuna from Huddersfield.

7.) 18 Aug 2021 14:25:05
Latest rumours I have seen is bacuna from Huddersfield?!

8.) 18 Aug 2021 14:26:00
First thing I thought John was that Jacko has had a set back. He makes us a different team in the midfield he does a job no one else in our midfield does so seems right to bring a replacement in for him and we don’t need to rush him back as quick. Who knows though just hope wee jacko is back soon and this new midfielder can hit the ground running.

9.) 18 Aug 2021 14:38:02
A guy told me at Real Madrid game he was finished.

10.) 18 Aug 2021 14:39:42
Wonder who katic is going to Spezia?

11.) 18 Aug 2021 14:40:09
What is your source me2.

12.) 18 Aug 2021 14:47:18
Just on loads on Facebook rangers pages, one of the blokes follows Huddersfield, says he is a bit of a hut and miss can be brilliant one game and missing the next but has a decent shot on him.

13.) 18 Aug 2021 14:50:14
Think will almost certainly be bacuna. Decent player apart from his 50 yard own goal 😂.

14.) 18 Aug 2021 14:57:18
Cheers me2. Not a very inspiring signing.

15.) 18 Aug 2021 15:00:46
John25, which media is reporting this? I really hope its true and we can get Veerman in. Would be a great boost to the squad adding that sort of quality.

16.) 18 Aug 2021 16:56:19
John I Think going to Italy would be perfect for Niko help him brush up on his defensive skills at a club where there isn’t much pressure. Think he’ll still be an important player for us in the future love the big guy. Although at the same time wouldn’t be opposed to him going to a Hearts/ Hibs/ Sheep on loan 🤷🏻‍♂️.

17.) 18 Aug 2021 17:32:41
Hearts hibs sheep all have plenty defenders, don’t need one they won’t play
I’d heard if Scotland Motherwell or st mirren were options.

18.) 18 Aug 2021 18:12:29
John I hope it is veerman and not bacuna as I ain’t overly joyed about the latter but will still get behind him.

19.) 18 Aug 2021 18:36:01
Absolutely storm we sign him we back him. Seeing Yorkshire papers saying we r paying 2.6 million.

20.) 18 Aug 2021 19:23:01
Good point John either way I’d much prefer him to go to an Italian side and get some good game time. As for the midfielder only time will tell I would prefer Veerman, from what I’ve heard Bacuna can be a great player on his day but is too inconsistent. Reminds me of a couple guys in the current squad. Maybe with better players he would up his game but we will see. I trust the management team on this and centre mid is what we need just now in this squad.

21.) 18 Aug 2021 19:29:19
John25 I also heard at the Madrid game that Jack was finished. As you will have noticed I have posted on here about the huge amounts of games he has missed and how we couldn't build anything on that. It was my way of trying to say he was finished but I knew if I came right out with it on here I'd get crucified. Thanks for making that rumour public mate.

22.) 18 Aug 2021 21:53:01
Surely it would have been made public by now? Jeezo hope not true.



10 Aug 2021 17:28:27
As regards this new 'third' top. I tyink it's safe to say that the vast majority of fans will be disappointed and dismayed.
Most of us had hoped it would be based on the original Rangers top, white with a blue star, to salute and remember our gallant pioneers who started this epic journey.
This is a golden opportunity missed commercially, because I am convinced sales will be poor while a proper commemorative top would have flown off the shelves. I'm sure this will cost both us and Castore a lot of money and will not endear those involved to the support. In fact, serious questions need asked here about who within Ibrox agreed to this awful thing being foisted upon us.


1.) 10 Aug 2021 17:54:44
100% mate wanted to go back to the start.

2.) 10 Aug 2021 17:56:33
I think it's just a rip off now they've released about 10 different tops and training tops screwing the fans for every penny.

3.) 10 Aug 2021 17:57:52
You can rest assured that their will be a 150yr top available next year.

4.) 10 Aug 2021 17:59:32
The purple top is horrific.

5.) 10 Aug 2021 18:01:35
I’m told it’s Robertson and bisgrove who select the strips.

6.) 10 Aug 2021 18:04:10
Agree 100% tavson, the strips have been a big let down this year.

7.) 10 Aug 2021 18:09:11
Looks like a ladies top.

8.) 10 Aug 2021 18:09:13
3 cheers like they done with the retro top no doubt Castore are taking rangers fans for mugs with the amount of stuff getting put out.

9.) 10 Aug 2021 18:11:25
The purple top is atrocious
Why out of 3 tops have we not had a modern take on the original white jersey with blue star on the chest.
They’d best have something up they’re sleeve as I’m not impressed.
Lastly does anyone else think all the training tops are nicer than our actual kits? The orange ones a belter. The white one as an away top would’ve been a cracker.

10.) 10 Aug 2021 18:19:28
And we have to wear it tonight. Disappointed we can't wear our home kit.

11.) 10 Aug 2021 18:25:26
How are they screwing the fans for every penny Aye Ready?
You don't need to buy them if don't want them. At least the club now makes big money from the sales of the castore gear.

12.) 10 Aug 2021 18:28:37
If that's the case, John25, they need to seek more informed advice on what their loyal consumers want. Probably a white strip will appear early next year and as usual we will lap it up. I fully understand that the club needs to capture as many sources of revenue as possible, but this purple monstrosity won't do that ans smacks of fleecing.

13.) 10 Aug 2021 18:29:56
Correct three cheers.

14.) 10 Aug 2021 19:11:55
I think we have brought that purple kit out for our female supporters! If they like the top then we will sell plenty, but I agree, it isn't a kit that would motivate me to spend money on it, apart from, for my grand daughter, that is. Looking forward to a commemorative strip in 2022!



04 Aug 2021 19:20:49
Any update today on Aribo, Hagi, Morelos or even Jack?


1.) 04 Aug 2021 20:51:55
We need Aribo, Hagi and Morelos back for next week. Unfortunately I suspect that Jack is still not fully fit which is a real problem with Kamara suspended.

2.) 05 Aug 2021 07:25:36
Gérrard said that Jack has got a meeting with the specialist to get the all clear for getting back into full throttle training. So fingers crossed next week he can start getting tore in again with the squad but I would imagine it will be a wee while before he's fully fit and up to speed and available for selection.



26 Jul 2021 12:46:26
5.5 million watched us beat Real Madrid on RTV - that's more than the whole population of Scotland. Phenomenal, and it was just a friendly. They're all here to see the Rangers.


1.) 26 Jul 2021 13:05:25
The Real Madrid fans watched on Real Madrid tv mate.

2.) 26 Jul 2021 14:51:49
It was streamed live on YouTube for free as well.

3.) 26 Jul 2021 16:17:38
Maybe so, but 5.5million is nothing short of remarkable for a friendly. In fact, it's sensational, even if a few thousand Madrid fans tuned in.

4.) 26 Jul 2021 20:07:23
Tav I appreciate your enthusiasm and there probably was a hellava lot of people watchin on rtv … but 5.5 mil? That would bring in over 35 million into the coffers if true …
Wish it was … 7.50 a hit even if a federal were watching together …. Even 5 million quid into coffers would be extraordinary.

Cocaine abuse and distribution has been happening at most clubs, including ours, for 25 years and more. Boys are sacked, allowed to leave, are not offered contracts etc because they've been caught, it just isn't made public. Some are just 16 and 17 years old and I have known one or two of them. Others have been lucky to avoid detection. But I don't know who 'all these players' are that end up in the EPL?

Bassey will become first choice left back. Doig won't come to sit on the bench, which is where he would be. We will probably bring in a loan player as cover and maybe even recall young Maxwell.

Jack has played more than 40 games in just one season out of four. For two other seasons he missed at least half of all our games and about a third of all our games in his other season. This season he will probably miss our first 15-20 games at least. In only a single season did he play more than half of our league games. He's a great player, but it's unrealistic to believe we will ever be able to build anything around him being available and fit.

17 Aug 2021 15:33:40
sweep1 for the first (and maybe only) time I agree with you re- Jack. He has missed more than 80 games since signing for us - that's about the same as he has actually played - and no matter how important people believe he is to our team, he's only in it for half the time. You cannot build on that type of unreliability, sadly.

Yogi was correct, TJBB, Kelly is indeed a good player but lacks what a former Rangers player told me was 'oooommmfff' and that is the most difficult thing to add to a player's locker. Players like Gazza, wee Barry, even Stevie G himself, had it in abundance, that heady mix of energy, drive, fire, vigour and guts that propels a player to the next level. Kelly is close, but the debate is will he get there in what is probably his make or break season?

If we had a squad of 25 wingers McKay would be 26th choice. He is simply miles away from where we have reached.

TJBB, having watched Kelly a number of times I'm still on the fence. I have previously said on here that, at 21, this is his make or break season. If he isn't getting very close to the first team by the time the first half of the season is done, then it's not going to happen for the lad. I like him, but I have the same gut feeling as you that he won't make it.

Roofe is suspended, Aribo will play further forward and Arfield will play in midfield.

Windy, should the manager and half of his staff then go for travelling up and down to their homes? Absurd.
