Some of the players who could be at Ibrox next season



So it begins in earnest, with the news Bilel Mohsni and Jon Daly are now gone, a rebuild of this tattered, feeble, and ridiculously poor squad begins. The board have three months to get a plan in place, rid of the dead wood, acquisition of players, and a decent new coach.

To that end the following is a list of players currently free agents, some of whom could well find themselves in Govan next season. I do not claim to endorse all these players, nor believe they are realistic; they are just a selection of the available players, some out of our price range presently, some not, who are worth considering.

Lee Erwin, Lionel Ainsworth, Marley Watkins, Gavin Reilly, Rhys McCabe, Andy Halliday, Remi Streete, Shane Ferguson, Carlos Cuellar, Danny Devine, Craig Slater, Aidan Connolly, Greg Kiltie, Jamie MacDonald, Danny Wilson, Andy Driver, Gregg Wylde, Nick Ross, Liam Polworth, Ali Crawford, Joey Barton, Bobby Zamora, Richard Dunne, Shaun Wright Phillips and Brian Murphy.

Scott Allan of Hibs has also been heavily linked to a move to Ibrox, at a fee of £500,000+, and with Hull relegated, Sone Aluko, Nikica Jelavic and Allan McGregor will certainly be finding new clubs. 99% unlikely to be Rangers but you never know.

The point of this entry is not to say Rangers are signing Joey Barton, Richard Dunne and Nikica Jelavic, but to highlight the rich nature of some of the players available and that a rebuild job has a chance if it is properly planned and the right players acquired.

There are many more available than this, of course.

  1. What is the point of this blog? Just a sea of random names of people who won't be near the Scottish Championship next season.

  3. not one of these players will end up at ibrox unless you are the new manager ?

  4. If we were to re-sign Nikica Jelavic, I'd die happy. Probably the best player Rangers have had in the last decade.

  6. The idea of taking on players like Joey Barton and Richard Dunne is the kind of thinking that has sunk this club. Overpaid, uninterested players seeing out their twilight years is the last thing we need. The buck stops with Ally McCoist and the previous board for the failure to win promotion. Mccall inherited garbage and did well to even get to a playoff final. That said I would rather see Warburton and Weir hired.

    1. Barton and Dunne Timmy supporters, and apparently Danny Wilson according to the papers. I think a great shout for player manager would be Lee McCulloch, he has been a great servant to the cause and can still play a bit and is doing his coaching badges

    4. Clueless, Anonymous, the dross on the pitch was ENTIRELY down to the lamentable mismanagement by McCoist, who continues to fleece the club to the tune of £70k per month! Nobody's hero now!

  7. I notice several ex Rangers players on that list, they didn't make it before for whatever reason why would they be any different now, sometimes players thrive outside the confines of the old firm that's just how it goes

  8. Players are looking for 3-4 year contracts, any players signed will have to be at a level to play in the premier division if promotion is achieved, how many would want to play in the Scottish lower leagues?

  9. all overpaid failures. I'm not a Rangers fan, but if this is the route you plan or endorse, no matter how speculative this post is, you're on the road to more ruin. Accepting your limitations, and building with what you have gradually now your upper management structure seems more fitting, is what your long term future deserves. Drop the egotistical nonsense you "deserve" to be at the top, and the demands that come with it that have crippled you repeatedly to date.

  10. As suggested Warburton and Weir should be target men. The names of players in the article are all yesterday's men. A new management team will have their own wish list and Mandy from Moodiesburn has a better chance of being on it than anyone on the list above.

  12. 3 years ago RFC had a chance to take all their young talents from Murray park and actually play them. Add in a modest amount of mature experienced talent and at present I bet Rangers may be in the top flight. Not to mention with a cheaper wage bill and players with a passion for their club.

  13. Lets begin with Neil McCann interview on sky, spot on McCall not the chosen one though I admire him as a person, nevertheless that does not rebuild RFC and by christ does that need rebuilding,Souness said also no fucking about with play offs we need to hit the ground running from day one, we need to be back where we belong,Warburton and Weir or Billy Davies, or Curbishley a long time out of football but he can work with youth, Mr King you must get this right

  14. Mr King, what makes you think he is our saviour, it has been so wrong with every decision since it went pearshaped for Murray, remain convinced we have missed the boat by ousting Ashley J

    1. I second that!!!

      I hear fans praise King, but cant trust the old board.

      Ashley wanted Sports Direct in Champions league, We wanted Champions league.. I fail to spot the problem if I'm honest.

    2. Utter nonsense, his board put us in this position with no investment in the team. Mr King and co will deliver in the next week buy doing something that Ashley never does, investing money....

    3. I think your worried

  15. Mccoist a total failure all stems from him pish signing and want to keep hush hush about his massive wages pathetic no other word pathetic

    ReplyDelete
  16. McCoist was never the problem, our problem is what we are left with, no idea, no football team and a junk heap of a season to look forward to, well done Mr King and the new hangers on.J

    ReplyDelete
  17. You dont get it.

    There is no money. Kingco have asked Ashley for the 2nd £5m tranche to keep the lights on.

    Be prepared for very bad news with Park and Gilligan at loggerheads with King and only still there trying to protect their investment.

    It's an absolute shambles. If Ashley coughs up to keep the lights on guess who will be back on the board............Llambias and Leach who at least know what they are doing unlike the current lot.
