Assuming Sinclair deal done then I think a creative midfielder and we are set with also a few out.
There is an argument for a GK but CG is decent enough and Fasan is considered good enough by many to step in if needed, so looking like a good window for us.
With a strike force of Sinclair LG MD and PR that will put smiles on our faces I think.
Also it means that the spine of the team has been strengthened which is what any good manager addresses.


1.) 05 Aug 2016 20:21:32
To me a GK is needed badly, also would like a tough tackling no nonsense midfielder brought in.

2.) 05 Aug 2016 21:11:57
Would you trust fasan or even Gordon in a cl game against quality opposition? I think over the next 2 season we need 2 new GK, but buy one now and put Gordon on the bench.

3.) 05 Aug 2016 21:27:17
Got to agree with chris30. Need a CM who isn't afriad to let himself be known. And btw, if not already know. Flamini was released by the Gunners on a free. 32y and still agressive as ever last i saw him.

4.) 05 Aug 2016 21:29:02
I think we get through this tie mate but I've no seen enough a Fasan and tbh I was never Craig Gordon biggest fan he's made a couple really good saves at times but he's prone to a howler at times its just in he's game still a tough one for me to take when you lose an England international goalkeeper ( England's number 1 in my opinion without being biased lol) and replace him way a guy that been out for some long, would like the lad Worm spurs number 2 no sure if it was Rodgers that signed him for Swansea.

5.) 05 Aug 2016 22:21:56
Rodgers said he wanted another CF i don't know whether that's still the case or not! But I'd love a GK and CM who can take a game by the scruff of the neck!

6.) 05 Aug 2016 23:19:06
Couldn't agree more with chris30 and shugmckie, a hard tackling ball winning midfielder. Flamini wouldn't be the worst shout. There after I think we need a commanding goalie, Gordon is a half decent shot stopper, however is not commanding.

7.) 06 Aug 2016 03:00:34
Bring back the Holy Goalie ;)

8.) 06 Aug 2016 07:12:07
I rather we got an up and coming someone, don't know anything about Sinclair, apart from what I've read, but his career seems to be going in opposite direction.

9.) 06 Aug 2016 08:22:53
the holy goalie was hot and cold also. Remember Begovic goal blunder he was on the other end. Countless times he fluffed it at Celtic also. What about Logan Bailly he was a decent enough keeper I though over Fasan.

10.) 06 Aug 2016 10:16:36
A GK is THE priority now.

I must say I am worried about winning this league guys, the Sevvies are only 3 points behind us.
I am running scared that they are so close lol.


1.) 12 Aug 2017 17:45:04
Brendan must go we've dropped to 2nd in the league.

2.) 12 Aug 2017 17:48:18
Good point Rayman. If this continues we'll only be 57 points ahead at the end of the season. And still people will moan.

3.) 13 Aug 2017 04:54:47
Haha did anyone hear Laurie big words on CLYDE on Friday? **** sake he said he was hoping for a revitalised and rejuvenated rangers this year. Maybe he believes the continuation myth. Anyway he went on to say that he found last season a snore, jeezo if an unbeaten treble is a snore maybe the sad old bugger should stay in bed instead of spending his time and money watching the invincibles hoping for a defeat. Eld fart.



05 Aug 2017 15:38:20
I admit I was in the sell Bitton camp but now I am prepared to see this as his first few games and forget everything he has done before.
He looks a class act in defense and is never stretched and has good positioning for someone who is not natural there and never looked troubled in Rosenberg.
I know he has not been put under real pressure yet but the signs are good.


1.) 05 Aug 2017 16:10:07
Definitely see Nir as a starter in that position if he can prove he isn't prone to lapses.

2.) 05 Aug 2017 17:12:30
Has he the pace for the euro games would be my main concern.

3.) 05 Aug 2017 17:19:35
I've defended Bitton a bit over the past few years, but thinking of him as a midfielder I was ready to see him go this summer. Due to the circumstances he's found himself doing a job at the back there and so far has looked fine. I do not see him playing there once our injury troubles are over though.

4.) 05 Aug 2017 17:31:38
I think the style of some European sides would actually be more suitable to him playing there, it's the level of opponents that worries me. Like Rayman says, he hasn't really been tested yet.

5.) 05 Aug 2017 18:01:35
We were discussing this on live chat

For me he could be the ball playing CH but if he were to come up against a MD type CF he would really struggle strength wise

I said last season he would make a great CH if a half stone heavier he is just too lanky for me he needs to build strength IMO (Y)

6.) 05 Aug 2017 18:43:22
jamie, i was laughed at for saying he looks good in there! lol.

7.) 05 Aug 2017 19:40:22
Think he could be a good partner with Simi. One hard hitting the other a ball player with great positional sense.



25 Jul 2017 19:10:46
Its that time of year again guys where we are all asking where are the transfers and why we have no back up at CH or up front etc.
In recent seasons its always been the debate wether we wait for CL inclusion or not as obv we can spend more and attract a better quality of player.
Its getting harder with it costing 50m for a full back down south this is what we are up against.
IMHO we have to wait now unless we can find the odd gem in Ollie or Benny, as the standard of player we need is higher than ever due to the success of the team and how well we are playing.
We have 24 players in our squad and 1 of them is Cifti, so BR has certainly trimmed the squad.
I sure we all agree we no longer want a squad player we must get a player who walks into the team, and we all see where we need the these players.
So yes its hard to take just now and frustration at no more signings yet but if we are patient and qualify for CL I think we will be rewarded.


1.) 25 Jul 2017 20:08:07
This is why it's important we try and produce our own players mate what would people be happier with if we had to pick spending big on a few players every year or spending a lot every year on our academy?

2.) 25 Jul 2017 20:39:12
I think everyone of us would love nothing better than to see a team full of home grown talent tearing up the league and Europe. The reality is that, bar the obvious few, we really haven't managed to produce adequate quality. 99% of the player's we release stay at a low level. Maybe this is down to recruiting, development, opportunity, luck or all of the above.

Who knows, maybe one of the young lads will come tomorrow night and do exactly what KT done when the opportunity presented itself. Wouldn't that be great to see.

{Ed007's Note - Look at all the clubs down in England that spend millions on their academies and youth recruitment and look how many players make the grade, Denayer, Roberts and Ntcham at City, Lukaku at Chelsea, Pogba at Utd though that wasn't all about football They stockpile these players in the hope they uncover a gem and if they don't they make a tidy profit, Chelsea signed Lukaku for £10 million, loaned him out for 2 years then sold him for £28-30 million to Everton. That's like us getting £8 million for Ciftci!
We do the same it's just on a much smaller scale and we usually only get nominal fees for departing players but we do stockpile young players like all big clubs.}

3.) 25 Jul 2017 20:58:14
We could have Tierney right back and Mcgregor left back and Simunovic and Lustig centre tomorrow night, however as much as I like what he does for team/ squad I recall Mcgregor getting caught upfield when playing left back last season and apparently Rosenberg play on the break. It's also means moving too many players around so I hope Brendan plays Ajer and like you say I hope he goes out and shows he is ready like Tierney did.

4.) 25 Jul 2017 21:09:05
Agree that the EPL clubs are a scaled version of what we are doing, in terms of what level of player they can uncover, or sell for a small fortune. What do you think is the issue with our academy Ed? If we can produce a Tierney and McGregor it shows that it is possible.

You need incredible luck to be able to produce half a team, such as Fergie's Fledglings. Monaco are the obvious recent example and beneficiaries of focusing on developing youth, as opposed to spending big.

I'm still hopeful that this year will see us bring one or two more success story's through.

{Ed007's Note - For me it's all down to the coaching. The age old excuse about the size of the country and population etc is bollocks, how many genuine world class players has England produced in that last 5 - 10 years? It's a UK wide problem and not just a Scottish one, imagine how much more shite the EPL would be if they didn't have the money to buy mediocre foreign talent let alone the quality foreign players they do have.
Sometimes I think we expect too much and don't forget how tough the support is on youngsters, they don't all come in and play like KT, it takes time for the to learn and progress and a lot of the support don't have the patience to let that happen, one mistake or one misplaced pass and they're on their back.}

5.) 25 Jul 2017 21:36:57
Was the stockpiling of players not also a means to try and beat the F. F. P regs as well Ed? Look at the boy Ake I think that Chelsea sold for £20mill and never really kicked a ball for them. Prices down there a ridiculous.

{Ed007's Note - Yeah it all helps with FFP.}

6.) 26 Jul 2017 08:39:39
You are bang on about youth needing time and fans being on their back.
Look at the amount of people on this page and in our wider fan base that wanted wee McGregor bombed out of parkhead ed007.

{Ed007's Note - Exactly.}



24 Jul 2017 18:31:49
Guys got my ticket today for wed, and on the top of the left hand side of it it says "Rangers Support".
Wtf is that all about lol, has anyone else got that on their brief.

Its too easy to say he would have done this or that, the fact is he didn't.
He was never a goalscorer and people are forgetting the sitters he missed.

Point is simple ed, SA or SJ its SA for me all day long.
SJ didn't play CAM all that often it was a makeshift postion for him just like it is for SA.
SJ for me is a DM player like he is for his country.


{Ed007's Note - This is just pointless, try actually watching games.}

01 Mar 2017 22:32:55
He hasn't ed its a slightly different role tho same as SJ who didn't play it either.
Both play similar but its Armstrong for me all day long.


{Ed007's Note - So where did Johansen play in Ronny Deila's 4-2-3-1? You're comparing players that play in different positions, Armstrong is nothing to do with it and I've explained why - this is up there with people that want to play Tierney at LW.
I really can't see the point you're trying to make.
Celtic playing 4-2-3-1 with Brown and Armstrong as the 2, with Johansen playing as CAM role COULD have potentially been better than having to play 4-3-3 with Bitton in beside Brown and Armstrong. I think Johansen's energy could have been useful and I think Rodgers would have got him back to playing the way he was in his first year and if he did he wouldn't have been any threat to Armstrong's position in the team, Armstrong's competition comes from Bitton, Johansen would have been competing with Rogic for a starting spot.}

Always a nervy night ed, I would go with Ralston and McGregor.
How did they beat Legia the very team I wanted to avoid, they must be decent or has Legia declined mate.


{Ed007's Note - Astana have won 3 of their last 18 away European matches, drawing 3 and losing 10 and they failed to score in 8 of those matches. They were lucky against Legia who should have beat them by more than 1 goal in Poland where Astana parked the bus BIG time and showed a lack of discipline throughout the game, with rash tackles etc. Astana were lucky they had got their 3rd goal at home in the 95th minute or something like that when the Legia players were dead on their feet with the heat or they would have went out on away goals.
I really don't see this tie posing any significant problems, no matter how hard people are trying to find them about weaknesses in the squad. This squad should be beating teams like this, we know exactly what to expect over there weather wise, they've had a new pitch installed so it's a better surface than last year which will help our passing game and we beat them last year with a poorer team than we have now.
They'll be a well drilled counter-attacking team, happy to sit back and soak up pressure which is what we face every week in the league. As long as we keep it tight at the back and keep our concentration we should take a good result over there next week. If players like Griffiths, Sinclair, Rogic or even Forrest/Hayes or McGregor are on their game they could cause them all sorts of problems running at their defence. I wouldn't be surprised to see a penalty.}

Ive said all summer that can u imagine if MD had scored those 2 free kicks for France how much he would be worth.
I also think LG will outscore MD every day of the week with equal games.
