Rangers invite former Newcastle star to train


According to the Daily Mail, former Newcastle United midfielder Kevin Nolan has been invited by Mark Warburton to trial/train at Rangers.

Nolan, a free agent, supposedly has offers on the table from a variety of suitors, including continental outfits, but the Rangers interest comes as something of a surprise and the ex-West Ham & Bolton playmaker would be a left-field addition to Rangers’ squad, given his age and Warbs’ predilection for younger players.

But at his peak he was certainly a productive player having plied his trade at the top of English football and being far from shy of chipping in with a goal or two.

With January’s window fast approaching, Mark Warburton is seriously starting to ramp up enquiries to further enhance an already solid-looking squad.

Fans will nevertheless hope that a defensive midfielder, striker and some depth in defence can be sought in a couple of months too. Furthermore, whether Nolan accepts the supposed invitation is another matter in itself.

NB: Mark Warburton today confirmed this story, sourced from the Daily Mail, is utterly untrue.


  1. Hope he isnt carrying any niggling injuries, as for signing policy, I say support Warbs and his staff 100%
    A creative midfielder who can also score goals….Whats not to like!!
    However at whoms expense???

  2. Presumably it's a no cost, low risk arrangement.

    Least of our worries with the explosion on Twitter of impending bad news and a cease and desist notice on King's desk from Mash as a result of the terms of the loan agreement being broke.

    All IP uses terminated, Murray Park and the Albion to be padlocked!

    Yep King really has Ashley over a barrel.

  3. If kevin nolan is fit and injury free I think he'd be a terrific signing for us,he has bags of experience and is a good midfielder with a bit of dig!

  4. Re unknown: Not at any bodies expense dude, would be a SQUAD player with proven experience, because somewhere b4 end of season we gonna hit a wobble, that when experienced players come to the party…Nathan does it really matter? are we not better than that as supporters?

  5. Fucking joke, thought the Nolan thing was on, got wee bit excited thought king was gonna come good even at 20 k a week it's only 2mill over 2 years, love w and w but they are hand tied and feel they will leave soon, the hat is a gent but surely he will realize king is a charlatan sooner or later, warbs is brilliant but the man deserves some funds, king promised 30 million , he hasn't gave us even 10 quid of his own cash so far WATP
