BANNED - who's who of the axed Ibrox loyal

So after this morning’s breaking news that Lee Wallace and Niko Kranjcar have joined the list of players banned from Ibrox, it is worth having a look at an entire rogue’s gallery of players who have fallen foul of Rangers’ (outgone) manager Pedro Caixinha to this date.

Clint Hill:

While Hill has subsequently said he was treated well by being given the respect of being told in person he was axed, nevertheless to this day the veteran stopper was never given public grace by either Pedro or indeed the club, and he was just cut out, without any goodbye at all. It was poor.

Why Rangers must resolve THIS growing problem at Auchenhowie...

 Article by: Richard, for Ibrox Noise

The good news that Niko Kranjcar is back once again training at the Rangers Training Facility, must be pleasing for our under-fire Rangers boss.

Although he is one of the most talented players at the club, I would recommend leaving him out of the next two games to allow his knee injury to mend exceptionally well before putting it under severe stress and taking the chance that he may break down again.

Rangers squad update for Perth over SIX players - Pedro with big calls to make

Rangers have been boosted with the news of three returnees today, but with another three remaining on the sidelines, selection issues abound for the trip to Perth in nine days.

On the positive side for Pedro Caixinha, he has been bolstered by the return of two key defenders, and arguably the team’s most creative player for the third-place clash with Saints.

Portugal’s Bruno Alves resumed training for his national team today meaning unless any unforeseen incidents occur on world cup duty, the ex-Porto veteran will be available for the match on the 13th.

Predicted XI for Hamilton: two changes for Rangers

After a disappointing Old Firm loss, Rangers manager Pedro Caixinha has a lot of thinking to do to try and create a sense of form for his team, following a run of of two wins, one win AET, a draw and a poor defeat.

Things have been decidedly patchy this season at best, and a number of key points emerged from that Celtic defeat at the weekend.

Hence it may be time to ring some changes and alter the system to best suit what the Portuguese has.

Rangers' injury streak continues - three out, one doubtful

Rangers’ sudden injury deluge has slightly worsened over the past 24 hours with the news Graham Dorrans is a slight fitness doubt (albeit will start) and Niko Kranjcar’s injury was more severe than first feared and he is definitely out tonight.

Rangers are already missing Jordan Rossiter (knee) and captain Lee Wallace (groin) for the League Cup trip to Firhill, and the loss of Kranjcar (knee) is certainly not ideal with regards options for the left.

Triple injury blow rocks Rangers

Rangers’ preparations for Saturday’s Old Firm clash at Ibrox have been rocked with the news that a number of players are set to miss the match with injury.

From last Thursday and a fully-fit squad, Pedro Caixinha’s plans have been disrupted with injuries to Lee Wallace, Jordan Rossiter and Niko Kranjcar.

"Pedro's Problem - can he fix it?"

Almost every article on Ibrox Noise seems to open with a sentence containing “Jamie Walker” these days. Believe me, it is boring us writing it as it is you reading it. But notwithstanding the obvious farce over the whole tale, the repercussions of not securing his signature are rather significant.

Indeed, the repercussions for not getting in a proper left winger are the real problem, and now Rangers’ left wing, rather than being sorted by a three-month long summer window, is even more troubling than it was.

Can Rangers get the best out of this star player?

There is no denying Niko Kranjcar’s class. He has shown it time and time again in his career. His vision, accuracy, intelligence and all round flair have been exceptional assets to him and the teams he has plied his trade with.

Following Sunday’s performance at County though, questions are being legitimately being asked of him and his role, and just how we can get the best out of him.

Rangers to make final bid for summer target; reports

Recent reports have claimed Rangers are set to make a final bid for Hearts’ winger Jamie Walker, with the Gorgie side confirming today that Director of Football Craig Levein will continue as manager.

Whether Levein’s ‘new’ position will make any difference to their desire to retain the 24 year old winger is yet to be seen, but it had been posited some weeks ago that Rangers would be likely to secure their long-term target but not until the tail end of the month.

Rangers fans aren't best pleased with Niko Kranjcar

Rangers’ star playmaker Niko Kranjcar may just find himself in a few fans’ bad books after his recent comments about Old Firm matches.

For those of you who do not know, the Croatian attacking midfielder has asserted that it is ok for Rangers to lose all of the clashes with Celtic, as long as they win the title.

Rangers v Dunfermline preview

Niko Krancjar will return tonight giving Rangers a welcome option on the wings with the creative playmaker recovering from a bad knock.

The 32-year old Croat missed out on Sunday’s curtain-raiser at Fir Park and the League Cup is the perfect testing bed for him to return to, and hopefully he will be given significant minutes on the pitch.

Ten things we learned from Marseille

 Article by: Ibrox Noise

Few would deny Rangers’ pre-season has not been entirely plain sailing. Some disappointing close-door results along with a painful exit from European competition has left the club and fans licking our wounds and trying to figure out where things were going wrong.

So when news broke that Rangers were to face French giants Marseille the collective sigh and ‘we’ll get gubbed’ rung around many with a feverish intensity, many it must be said, including Ibrox Noise.

We feared today, with unsettled players, a manager unsure of his best strategy. We need not have worried.
