Rangers injury crisis potentially grows - up to SIX out of Old Firm?

Tonight’s hard-fought Betfred Cup win over Partick came at a potentially high cost, with yet more possible casualties adding to Rangers’ ever-growing injury list, propelling the situation into a mild crisis.

Rangers got to the semis by hook or by crook, but it was not without drawbacks, as on top of Jordan Rossiter (knee), Niko Kranjcar (knee), and Lee Wallace (groin), captain Bruno Alves was withdrawn early with a suspected calf strain only to be followed by deputising left back Declan John with a possible hamstring.

Why a loan away might suit this forgotten Rangers star

When Rangers signed Jordan Rossiter last year, there were many who believed we were getting a hybrid of the best of Barry Ferguson and Steven Gerrard. We believed the £250k development fee for cross-border youth signings was a bargain beyond words and this kid would rise to become a future Rangers and even England captain.

Sadly, so far for the lad, it has not worked out anything like that and even more sadly we can probably see why Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp cut him loose.

Is crucial summer signing adjusting to life at Ibrox?

Article by: Ibrox Noise

When Mark Warburton brought in Joey Barton, Jordan Rossiter and (we thought) Matt Crooks last summer, Rangers fans believed we not only had a long-awaited solution to defensive midfield, but were now in fact embarrassed by riches there.

As we know, it worked out nothing like that, with Andy Halliday continuing to fill that role as Rossiter laid out injured, Barton laid back out to England and Crooks, it transpires, is not even a defensive midfielder, as testified by the man himself.

Scotland squad - how many Rangers players got the call?

When Scotland manager Gordon Strachan announced his latest squad for the upcoming world cup qualifiers, there was an air of inevitability as far as Rangers were concerned.

Despite the side’s second season back in the top flight being underway in earnest, not a single Rangers player featured in the squad, despite a significant number of contenders strutting their stuff at Ibrox currently.

Pedro: "This is how we'll deal with wind up merchants"

Rangers manager Pedro Caixinha has surprisingly admitted that he is trying to prepare his players for dealing with wind up merchants on other teams.

Speaking recently following Ryan Jack’s successful appeal over Saturday’s red card, Pedro made the stark admission that he is trying to figure out how to control his players and stop them seeing the red mist when opposition tactics deliberately set about to cause friction.

Jack red card - did ref John Beaton 'even up' an error?

 Article by: Ibrox Noise

If one thing is for sure, it is that the fall out from Saturday’s titanic tussle at Ibrox between Rangers and Hibs continues on with nonsense over red cards, police action, statements, and every which way but loose.

Rangers fans are especially angry over the Ryan Jack red card, believing the defensive midfielder was harshly treated by referee John Beaton and should never have been sent off.

Part Three: Defending the midfield. Have Rangers fixed that?

 Article by: Ibrox Noise

In the third part of Ibrox Noise’s four-part series, we will take a look at another badly-neglected area of Rangers’ XI over recent years; defensive midfield.

Ever since Mark Warburton decided to ruin two years of Andy Halliday’s career by shoving him in defensive midfield for reasons known only to himself when other options were available, that area of the pitch has been a real weakness at Ibrox.

Can these four men be the difference for Rangers?

 Article by: Ibrox Noise

After the earlier flurry of transfers in the summer window activity, Rangers were dealt a bit of a blow with the untimely Europa League exit. However, that coincided with the latest incoming capture, and he, along with three others, could be pivotal this season in making Rangers seriously competitive again.

I am referring to Graham Dorrans, of course, but in conjunction with defender Bruno Alves, midfielder Ryan Jack, and striker Kenny Miller. While few would make a strong case that Rangers as a whole are ready to really push at the top of the table, there are grounds that these four men are the difference between midtable obscurity and a serious fist at the SPL summit.

Is Rangers' new signing captain material?

 Article by: Richard Fillingham

Pedro’s 2nd signing of the summer, Ryan Jack has represented Scotland at Under-16, Under-17, Under-19 and Under-21 level, proving that he has been an incredibly consistent & good international standard player throughout his career.

He has captained the Under-21 side and is on the top ten list for achieving 19 appearances at this level and in May 2013, he received a call-up to the full Scotland squad for the game against Croatia. 
This is the first time that Rangers have signed a captain of Aberdeen and their fans are absolutely livid that Ryan would have the cheek to decry his home town team like that. He better get used to living in the Glasgow area, because from now on, he is in for a hard time and seen as a traitor. Aberdeen fans hate the glorious Rangers,

From a Wigan reject to a Serie A star - Rangers' rebuild gets serious

To call the past week or so ‘active’ would be the biggest understatement one could muster. Rangers, desperately in need of an overhaul, have reportedly told up to a dozen players they are surplus to requirements, and have equally been linked to up to 30 different names in the past fortnight alone.

This has been a crazy time, but a good crazy time.

Rangers fans will never forget that illegal embargo our club suffered three years ago, where for three different transfer windows Rangers could not sign a soul, and were left with the dregs left over from the exodus of 2012, as well as the dross McCoist signed into the Club thereafter.

Rangers close to five-player swoop; reports

Strong speculation is gathering pace that Rangers are close to completing the signings of Bruno Alves, Carlos Pena, Fabio Cardoso and Louis Moult, on top of the capture of Ryan Jack.

The five signings would be a massive boost for Rangers fans, with serious work finally getting underway to overhaul a dishevelled squad and give the chance for manager Pedro Caixinha to finally imprint his image on the side.

Four SPL targets (and a few others) that can reinvigorate Rangers

 Article by: Richard Fillingham

I believe that some Rangers supporters need to take a reality check with our signing ambitions in the current transfer market. It is only five years ago that we came close to being wiped out and had to build ourselves up again.

We were left bereft of experienced Rangers class players with the exception of four or five stalwarts who for one reason or another decided to stay and fight for our survival and a very inexperienced manager in Rangers scoring legend, Ally McCoist.

There were two ways things could go for us in 2012. Ally could sign decent young players with the potential to win the 3rd Division easily, which would leave them in good stead to go on and improve with experience and then to proceed to win the 2nd Division in their second season together.

Aberdeen, Rangers, and the slaughtering of Ryan Jack

One of the worst-kept secrets in Scottish football is Aberdeen’s former captain Ryan Jack making a summer switch to Ibrox. I say former because the press has made quite a big deal of the fact the Pittodrie outfit relieved him of the armband and furnished Graeme Shinnie with it instead.

Indeed, the press and Scottish football in general have made a real stink about the fact Jack is swapping Pittodrie for Ibrox, as if such behaviour is abhorrent.

Triple transfer boost for Rangers - fans will be delighted

Rangers fans have been given a triple transfer boost over the past 24 hours with the news of all season ticket monies being reinvested into the squad, while two new players look set to arrive at Ibrox.

Chairman Dave King has confirmed circa 35,000 season tickets have been sold/renewed meaning a minimum of £10-13M is to be invested in the playing staff and Pedro Caixinha’s overhaul of the existing personnel. This could mean as much as £18M outwith King’s and co’s own investment, although whether fans actually believe the above claims by the Ibrox chief is quite another matter.

Rangers complete first midfield summer signing; reports

Unconfirmed reports circulating around Ibrox claim new manager Pedro Caixinha has finally completed his first signing, a three year deal for Aberdeen’s Ryan Jack, it is said.

The 25 year old midfielder has been on Rangers’ radar for some time, and has been an integral part of the Dons’ side which has sweeped its way to second place in the SPL, while performing impressively against Rangers along the way.
