How Rangers can shape up with new SPL duo

 Article by: Richard, for Ibrox Noise

Having watched how quickly Ryan Jack and Graham Dorrans have fitted into the Rangers team so effortlessly, it seems to have given Pedro the added attraction of signing another two home-grown players into the Ibrox squad.

Caixinha craves for a team full of winners and obviously feels that Hearts winger Jamie Walker and Aberdeen midfielder Kenny McLean are two players who have all the right credentials to become successful Rangers players for many seasons to come.

Late August signature for Rangers target?

 Article by: Ibrox Noise

Speculation is rising that Rangers have principally secured Jamie Walker, but with the caveat that the deal is reportedly not set to be completed until near the end of the transfer window.

The fee as yet is unknown and the deal itself not even confirmed but that has not stopped reports that the 24-year old winger will join Rangers in late August, ending a long-running saga and securing his services for the bulk of the new season.

Pedro: "I'll add two more players"

 Article by: Ibrox Noise

Following today's impressive result against French cracks Marseille, manager Pedro Caixinha has confirmed he remains in the market for a further two players.

The Portuguese has been hot on the tail of a number of players for a while now, and speculation has ramped up following his assertion that they are to be Scottish and will understand the significance of playing for Rangers.

Two Scottish wingers targeted - can Rangers sign both?

 Article by: Ibrox Noise

Following this summer’s latest long-term Rangers transfer saga in the pursuit of Hearts’ Jamie Walker is the latest link to Pedro Caixinha’s Rangers rebuild in the shape of former target Jamie Murphy.

The 27-year old Brighton flanker was on the Ibrox radar some years ago in his Motherwell days, and with the site professing the poverty in that area of the XI the fact another winger on top of Tynecastle’s flying machine is being focused on comes as a bit of a relief, if not quite the answer to all Rangers’ problems.

Winging it - a real Rangers headache

 Article by: Ibrox Noise

While fans have rightly been concerned recently about the defence, there is another area of Rangers’ XI which is in real trouble based on current personnel.

Ibrox Noise does not want to be negative, but we must be constructive, and few could deny the depth available on Rangers’ flanks is something approaching dismal.

Interest ramps up: Rangers to up offer for long-term target

 Article by: Ibrox Noise

With reports breaking today that Pedro Caixinha scouted long-term target Jamie Walker last night during Hearts’ friendly with Newcastle, it is evident the Portuguese has not given up on the winger.

Reports are suggesting Rangers will return soon with a much-improved offer for the 24-year old attacker, with strong hints it may come close to matching what Hearts are asking for his signature.

Trail goes cold on Rangers target while League 1 interest gets set to leave

Article by: Ibrox Noise

It has emerged in the past 24 hours that while Northampton Town’s bid for midfielder Matt Crooks has been reportedly accepted, any lingering hopes of securing Hearts wingers Jamie Walker have been reduced to nearly nil.

The midfield enforcer signed from Accrington along with fellow Warburton recruit Josh Windass simply never got anything like a chance at Ibrox, for whatever reason, and was farmed out on loan to Scunthorpe as soon as possible.

Rangers' move for winger closer after squad omission

 Article by: Ibrox Noise

Jamie Walker’s switch from Hearts to Ibrox appeared closer today when the winger was conspicuously absent from Hearts’ friendly win over Livingston.

Reportedly picking up ‘a slight knock’, the Gorgie attacker has made no secret of his desire to join Rangers, but Hearts have played hardball over the transfer fee, apparently seeking a seven-figure fee for his services.

3 Scots, 3 bids, 3 signings?

 Article by: Ibrox Noise

This transfer window has been home of a very strange dichotomy as far as Rangers are concerned. On the one hand, we have seen eight players sweep through the front door with near clinical efficiency and with only 24 days on the transfer clock. On the other, there have been two increasingly long-running sagas while another one appears to have joined them in the past 24 hours.

As all fans will know, Rangers are involved in arduous negotiations over Norwich City’s Graham Dorrans. The bid made by the Ibrox men has been regarded as insufficient for the Canaries to accept, with reports Rangers’ submitted fee has topped out at £1.2M while the Championship side want well over two times that.

Rangers' transfer roundup latest - all the ins and outs

 Article by: Ibrox Noise

Few Bears can remember a transfer window this efficient. We have witnessed eventful windows in the past, such as ‘99s glut of incoming under new manager Dick Advocaat, and 2012’s certainly saw a lot of activity, if not ‘good’ activity, as did last summer, but there has been something clinical about how eight players have been signed up over the course of barely three weeks.

With that all said, Ibrox Noise takes you all through the latest rumours, incoming, outgoing and general gossip about the personnel side of the club as it stands:

Could this internationalist free agent's name stop Rangers making a move?

 Article by: Richard, for Ibrox Noise

Sebastian "Seb" Larsson who just turned 32 on 9 June has just been released by Sunderland following their relegation down to the Championship, and now the 5’ 10” versatile midfield/winger star is available  on a free transfer.

Would this move be better than paying Norwich City £1.2m for Graham Dorrans or paying £1m to Hearts for Jamie Walker to play in our midfield? Or on top of them?

"They're close" - the five deals tantalistingly near completion

 Article by: Ibrox Noise

With Rangers having already secured five players in earnest for the new campaign, attention has turned to the ‘nearlies’.

There are five players who seem tantalisingly close to joining the ranks at Ibrox, which would essentially make an entirely new team from the one which performed so dismally last season – and only the full back areas would still require work.

Rangers-linked SPL midfielder confirms desire to leave present club

On top of the glut of transfer activity coming out of Ibrox right now is the news that Hearts’ 23-year old forward Jamie Walker has confirmed with Ian Cathro his desire to leave Tynecastle.

Walker has been linked with Rangers of late, and it appears the boyhood Bluenose may be set to get his wish as Hearts boss Craig Levein has corroborated the lad wishes to move on.
