Rangers linked to former Brentford midfielder

Rangers have reportedly been
linked to borderline-former Brentford (he was recently told he is free to leave) midfielder Jonathan Douglas.
Recent speculation has
tentatively mentioned his name in relation to Rangers, but today that has
turned into a more concrete story with a number of outlets raising his name as
a possible candidate for Mark Warburton’s summer rebuild job at Ibrox.

The 33-year old, who previously
played under Rangers’ new manager (and is understood to be close to him), is in a similar mould to current Murray Park
trialist John Eustace, and would be viewed as healthy competition to Eustace,
if the latter was to prove his fitness to Murray Park
physios.
With Andy Murdoch currently
touring with the U20s, his breakthrough season last year may be viewed as a
stage of his progress and thoughts are that Warburton is putting him, like many
of the other youths, in cotton wool, and not wanting to overuse him in such an
important season at the Club.
This leaves the engine room at
Ibrox requiring some reinforcements, and with Eustace and Irishman
Douglas in the mix, the vacancies would be fairly well filled.

  1. We already have 20 midfielders ffs what's the point? We can never win games without a proven goalscorer, where is he?

  2. If that is your point why go for the Hibs midfielder,a different type of midfielder of course I grant you that . I presume most Gers fans would look this possible 33 year old aquisition as being an non required addition

  3. Boyd will score more goals for killie this season than any currant rangers player FACT. Wtf king we need a striker NOW! No more midfielders

    • Martyn waghorn reminds me of James beatie lol maybe he might gt one goal for us just like him.
      He just doesn't look promising. We need someone tall strong with a good finish speed and good composed aggression.

  4. Yeah agreed this is a step back. We already have young and hungry in the midfield, and frankly he's closer to my age than I'd like.

  5. Would love Allan at gers but would prefer a good striker first, don't reckon Warburton seen our forwards last season, they were dog raw

  6. May for a mil
    Allan for 750.000
    Have a look for some other young players around Europe surely there must be as hearts proved last year instead of duds and over priced rubbish and build a core to the team that's healthy enough to compete in the prem if we go up no point thinking we can get any were just being rangers

  7. What's the point in fancy Dan footie? Goals win matches not pretty play, ffs gers sign a proven striker

  8. Any player that can come in and put Law on the subs bench is fine by me,,,,,

    Last season was a failure in our midfield, we had proven Goals scorers that our midfield couldn't set up, in fact our midfield struggled with simple passing. We need rebuilt all over as our current crop are mostly here because their deals didn't run out in the summer!!!

  9. Mw the man looking at these player not king. And a trust him more than a trust all your pathetic posts. And a guarantee Boyd doesn't score more goals for killie than any other rangers player this season. A think there's a few tims in disguise on this

  10. Were Rangers in its traditional position at the top of the SPL Douglas might not be a positive acquisition for you. As it is, a move to you would be a step backwards for a player who could still do a very good job for many teams in the English Championship but is not quite up to helping Brentford improve on last season's 5th spot as was highlighted when compared to the defensive midfield of Middlesbrough when they beat us in the play offs. But he's more than good enough to help take you up and to be a good team in the SPL the following season.

  11. Go and get Zeefuik who was at Hearts last year. Only 24 year old, good technically, physical and good eye for goal. Available for just 200k

  12. At least two other strikers are required.

    Miller is not prolific, never has been.

    Hardie, not yet ready.

    Waghorn 37 goals in 189 senior appearances…………averaging a goal every 5 game, though he should be able to improve on that against the likes of Alloa and Cowdenbeath.

  13. Sorry I'm a plastic ger live in London, only get to 5ish games a season, the summer schools at Murray park were a great idea, but still expensive for some families, my son is handicapped and ibrox staff were superb with him, they let us stay an hour more than was agreed with loads of other kids, that's the rangers we love, also players signed shirts balls and even my sons grannies fav tea towel, can't we put even a pound each in and maybe set up a trust to buy tickets for underprivileged kids for next season watp

  14. As Bees fan Douglas would be the beating heart of your midfield. Has been at the centre of our rise to where we are now.

  15. Douglas would run himself into the ground for Warburton and is the type of no nonsense midfield player that we need. While we have plenty of midfield players on the books we don't have many ball winners and what I have seen of Law suggested that he is a sand dancer!

  16. As a Bees fan, I suggest you all give Warbs a chance before you start bleating…and Douglas is a class act who will give everything for you and run rings round players 10 years his junior…Good Luck next season

  17. Dallas should be left in the 80s lol Stuart would be a great buy for gers but reckon the wage barrier would kill us but here's hoping WATP

  18. You know what king and co should have put the 30 million in this year and went for it,i just get that feeling we going be in play offs again with more cheap rubbish signed up.

  19. We do not need this man he will be a waste of money time & resources
    He is a spent force, Played for a bunch of no mark teams & was even a Trialist for the dark side
    But the main reason [ IMO] is he is too old we dont require another OAP we want young sharp guys who will fight for the cause week in week out,
    hopefully we will see that attitude tomorra & we can get tore into the hibbees
    I cant wait, im like a wean at xmas
