Rangers target dismisses current club and says Rangers are 'massive'...


In his pleas for Ryan Jack not to be booed playing for Scotland tonight, Aberdeen midfielder and Rangers target Kenny McLean has inadvertently admitted Aberdeen are not a big club.

The 25 year old engine room man was the subject of huge speculation this summer, and with his rejection of a new deal confirmed and his departure in January or next summer assured, the midfielder has not only indirectly conceded Aberdeen are ‘small time’, but given a subtle hint of where he will be next year by praising Rangers’ size.

Toxic Scotland as demonstrated by Kenny McLean


As many fans will know, Aberdeen midfielder Kenny McLean, himself a Rangers target for January, has asked Scotland/Aberdeen ‘fans’ not to boo Ryan Jack at Pittodrie should the Rangers midfielder take to the field at any point.

For a current player to actually plead with his own fans not to boo his team mate really does highlight just how despised Rangers are in Scotland, to the point of a level of toxicity we had hoped time and maturity would see dissipate, but are sad to have been wrong.

Rangers' Ryan Jack Will Get the Chance to Impress on the International Stage

It's only a matter of weeks since Scotland failed to qualify for the World Cup 2018 but caretaker boss Malky Mackay is already looking to the future. The former Cardiff coach has announced his squad for the upcoming friendly against the Netherlands, and it features a couple of surprise inclusions, including Rangers midfielder Ryan Jack.

Ibrox cull: who stays and who goes?


It goes without saying ex-manager Pedro Caixinha’s Portuguese/Hispanic revolution was an unmitigated disaster, comparable or maybe even worse than Paul Le Guen’s ill-fated regime in 2006.

However, a left-over problem from the last eight months is the (expensive) dead wood Rangers evidently have on their hands and speculation has begun about who may struggle to survive a cull under this hopefully bright new era.

Ibrox Noise takes us through the Portuguese Purchase Intrusions (or PPI as I will call them) that have failed to deliver, and risk of departure or otherwise.

Jack sees red (again) as Rangers wilt (again)


Another Rangers match, yet more chaos. In truth Rangers were not absolutely 100% horrible tonight, although not far off, but once again another opponent bullied us and deserved their point.

Sadly this has become the norm for Rangers now – to play like this, fail to take chances, and lose discipline.

Ryan Jack has had enough chances now – he is not a silly boy with lots to learn, he is an experienced pro who has not delivered on the pitch anywhere near enough to compensate for his new hobby of picking up red cards.

Pedro's unexpectedly massive Motherwell gamble


With Sunday’s cup semi drawing ever closer, Rangers manager Pedro Caixinha has an unexpected gamble to make, one which could be the difference between ignominy of defeat and the glory of another Hampden final.

As we all know, the last fixture was an impressive victory away in Perth – but one thing it relied on was the brilliance of Graham Dorrans. Dorrans played his finest match in the shirt by some distance, pulling strings from deep, spraying the ball wide, stretching the play and even scoring a fine goal.

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.

Massive headache for Rangers v Saints - two key absences


Rangers manager Pedro Caixinha has a bit of a problem on his hands for the trip to McDiarmid Park on the 13th – thus far in every match Rangers have played both pre-season and since the competitive stuff started in earnest in July, one man has been an absolute mainstay of the first team and arguably the first name on the shirt, without missing a single match.

Ryan Jack was Pedro’s highest-priority signing and the first confirmed recruit of the summer window, with the hype around his arrival reaching fever points before it was confirmed, much to the predictable chagrin of both Aberdeen (who now despise him) and the rest of the SPL (who always hate Rangers).

Summer signing - why waste him?


If there was one signing that absolutely united Rangers fans this summer, it was the capture of another one of us in the form of Graham Dorrans.

A former Scotland international, this was a classy midfielder with bags of top-flight English Premier League experience and still only just scraping 30 years of age.

The saga to get him north lasted for some time, but every Bear to a man and woman were overjoyed to finally clinch it and we were certain we had a real midfielder to compliment Ryan Jack perfectly.

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,
