Rangers linked to Celtic and Forest SPL target


According to ‘Football Whispers’ Hibernian’s John McGinn continues to be linked with an unlikely switch to Rangers, with the ‘whisper’ rating not too far behind that of confirmed target Jamie Walker.

The midfielder, who has four appearances for Scotland under his belt, has been a mainstay of Hibernian’s first team for some considerable time now, and has been a consistent and impressive performer for the Edinburgh side down in the Championship and now in the SPL.

Poll: should Rangers sell Wes Foderingham?


It has been reported recently that Nottingham Forest manager Mark Warburton is monitoring Rangers’ goalkeeper Wes Foderingham and has (predictably) cryptically stated that he is ‘very close’ to a new signing but naturally has not elaborated on who this is.

With Forest also linked to Bournemouth’s Adam Federici (also a goalkeeper) it does appear likely Warburton is going for strengthening in that area, but the key issue is do Rangers want or need to sell Foderingham.

Is this why Barrie McKay REALLY left?

 Article by: Ibrox Noise

Following Rangers’ strongly-worded response to ex-winger Barrie McKay’s ‘subhuman treatment’ accusation, sources close to the club have lifted the lid on why McKay and manager Pedro Caixinha really fell out.

It is Ibrox Noise’s understanding that Caixinha made a footballing request of McKay that the young winger apparently deemed ‘unacceptable’ and our information is he ‘downed tools’ and looked for an out.

Mark Warburton to complete three-player Rangers swoop; reports

 Article by: Ibrox Noise

Hot on the heels of the failed bid but simmering interest in James Tavernier and successful swoop for winger Barrie McKay is the breaking story this morning that Rangers’ ex-manager Mark Warburton is finally showing interest in goalkeeper Wes Foderingham.

This was a transfer link many fans have expected for some time, with Foderingham being one of Rangers’ better performers last season, and had been tentatively proposed as a player who would attract suitors.

POLL: Will Rangers miss Barrie McKay?


The rise and fall of Barrie McKay has been extensively documented, so we will not waste your time repeating it all. Regardless of whether you think Pedro Caixinha was in the right or wrong, Rangers’ manager has the final call and according to McKay himself deemed the Scotland winger surplus to requirements at Ibrox.

While the fee Nottingham Forest paid for McKay was undisclosed, Sky Sports, who are usually pretty accurate with this sort of thing, valued it at £1.5M which is a solid return for a player signed for minimal outlay from Kilmarnock youth. If, indeed, for any outlay at all. Earlier information had claimed Forest's investment at £750K but it seems this was incorrect.

Replanning pre-season - how Rangers can recover

 Article by: Richard, for Ibrox Noise

With Rangers out of the Europa League and no League Cup till next month, this leaves the ‘Gers with 4 weeks without any planned competitive games.

I suggest we plan 3 or 4 games at Ibrox to allow our players to gel together in matches and at the same time play against glamour opposition so that Rangers could earn decent money from them.

McKay sold to Nottingham Forest - Rangers fans will be stunned at the fee

 Article by: Ibrox Noise

News has broken this morning that Barrie McKay’s transfer to Nottingham Forest is set to be concluded and Rangers fans will be astonished at the fee.

McKay, 22, has been the subject of intense speculation for the past few months, and it had always been mooted that his ex-boss Mark Warburton’s Nottingham Forest were in pole position to seize his signature – but news this morning has strongly suggested the fee Bread Man has shelled out is a stunningly modest £500,000.

The four signs of the end of Barrie McKay

 Article by: Ibrox Noise

With it becoming increasingly plain over the past 24 hours that Barrie McKay’s time at Ibrox draws to an accelerated end, many Bears might be shaking their head wondering how it got this far, so quickly.

Only six months ago, despite an overall unimpressive maiden season in the SPL, McKay was ‘the future of Rangers’, the star winger Mark Warburton was going to build his team around, and he would be much better with much better players around him.

McKay had starred for Scotland, had scored ‘that’ goal against Celtic last April year, and a new contract was in the offing.

Is Pedro hinting these three out of favour stars have futures at Ibrox?

 Article by: Ibrox Noise

With yesterday’s news of the significant omissions from the Europa League squad, and the extensive implications for the likes of (reportedly leaving) Andy Halliday and Joe Dodoo who have been excluded from the submitted list, most fans have been processing the likely departures as a result of these absences.

However, a further nugget of curiosity has to be the three supposedly out-of-favour and surplus players who are most definitely included in the squad, and who may have received something of a reprieve as a result.

Jason Cummings just can't bring himself to say 'Rangers'...

 Article by: Ibrox Noise

Evidently losing out on promotion two seasons ago still stings for Nottingham Forest striker Jason Cummings, poor thing.

The 21-year old forward, who himself had productive outings against then-manager Mark Warburton’s Rangers, has now linked up with the Bread Man but cannot bring himself to say Rangers’ name.

Bread men - the final insult


I thought long and hard about this entry. I have rarely spent such a spell deciding whether or not to proceed with an article on this site, but this one was a source of much conflict.

On one hand there was the school of thought that we should let sleeping dogs lie, move on with our lives and stop living in the acrimonious past. But on the other was the simple inescapable truth of what happened, and how it deserved a final summation given what a huge deal it was and still is to the modern and classic history of Rangers Football Club.

This site was probably the only one willing to actually criticise the Bread Man. For some unknown reason we could not fathom, a great majority of Rangers fans considered him the Messiah and transcended him above criticism, literally until the final two months of his time at Ibrox.

New striker on trial at Murray Park


Rangers have taken young Livingston striker Matthew Knox on trial at Murray Park, photographer Willie Vass has today revealed.

The veteran snapper captured the 16 year old forward going through his paces at Auchenhowie, and time will tell if manager Mark Warburton deems him good enough for a youth deal at Ibrox.

Rangers, Celtic, Scott Allan & Karma

It was with a great deal amusement that news broke recently regarding former Rangers fan and club target Scott Allan’s link with a move out of Parkhead. Information received over a month ago by this site (but which elected to remain unpublished due to relative unimportance) was that he had expressed his desire to leave Celtic due to lack of playing time.

With Derby, Nottingham Forest & Bolton all reportedly interested in the playmaker, it highlights just how bad a decision he made to leave Hibs for Celtic rather than just waiting a few months to sign a pre-contract with Rangers, his supposed ‘boyhood club’.
