I await a series of nonsense statements from these players who want to jump ship, off you go lads and enjoy your career but button it, we dont need or want your mock sympathy.

These guys are professional footballers who have all taken a voluntary wage cut for the best part of 4 months to help this club.  There is not a shred of doubt in my mind that the sympathy is genuine.

They will be getting their cut wages back in deals as cheaper/free agents.
Lot of people don't realise that but their agents do.
Sad fact of life.
Not saying they do not care as they obviously did but they won't lose out financially in the long run.

If the younger players go then they will probably end up like most, 5 years of oblivion then turning out for St Johnstone

I agree. Although I believe the sympathy would be geniune from most players I don't want to be reading  loads of  "sorry statements" to be honest.

Will thing I will say though is that after our fate is decided and lets say we end up back in the SPL with some sanctions for a few years, if players leave just to go chase money down south then once we are back at the top it better be known that if/when they fail down in England or elsewhere that they are not welcome back here.

I understand players will have ambition don't get my wrong but if players aren't willing to help us out for a year or so and just want the easy option then I don't want us being a retirement home for them if they don't make it down in England.

In saying that though I don't expect many to stay if we are in the 3rd Div next season and I don't think we can truly blame any of our players for wanting to stay at the top level. I'd be really disappointed though if people leave before we know exactly where we are going to be next season.

Not sure how you can show that attitude. Every single player in our team has shown nothing but respect and admiration of our jersey over the past few months. We cant expect them to put their life on hold while we rebuild. Footballing is there career, and a short career at that. What they've done already is more than we could have expected and they deserve total respect for that. True bears and every one of them will be remembered as such

Agree but only for the players who support Rangers, can't really blame Boca, Goian, Edu etc despite what we've done for them. But it's people like Davis, Naismith, McCabe if they leave whilst claiming to be fans. That's what gets my blood boiling. UNFORGIVABLE.

There's players who are motivated by money and others for the love of the game (and Rangers). The latter will stick around, the rest will go off to wherever.  Yeah, I'll thank them for the 4 months of wage cut. But the ones that stick about will be the true legends.

oh how do they manae to live off of a wage that most fans can only dream of :rolleyes:

you do realise that some of the players earned more this season with the wage cut than they did on their previous deals,

any player leaving imo can stick their sympathy as the OP states, we dont fucking want it and certainly dont need it anymore, we are Rangers and we WILL rise again

and when we pass these bailout players on the way up we can wave at them

This is nonsense. These guys have been through lots in the last 6 months, not knowing from one week to the next whether their job would even be there, or if they would get paid. If they walked away without saying anything they would be criticized as heartless bastards. At least they are showing some sort of feeling.

I wouldn't worry so much if we had a chairmen who was willing to invest money into the club.

Not a go at Green, because he stepped up when no one else did, but lets face it, he wants to make a profit from the club.

TBH i think the uncertainty over which league we will be playing in could make a few players leave sadly.


We need to find a league before the spl vote, we are signing our own suicide note by waiting to the 4th of July to be told no anyway. The logistics of having to apply to the sfl and them restructuring division's 1-3 to accommodate Rangers in the space of 30 days are far too much to overcome.

Till players know where they will be playing they will be looking at other options. What a fecking mess Murray and Whyte the pair of rats hope they end up in jail.

I think the poison being aimed at guys who have turned out for us for a number of years a lot of the time uncertain to what the future held for them is fucking deplorable, through no fault of their own they find themselves in the situation where they may or may not have to move clubs in order to advance/sustain their career it wasn't the fucking players who put us in this mess and if any of them can find a bit of security for themselves and their families in the near future then I wish them all the best they owe us fuck all, if you want to talk about who owes us then lets start in the fucking boardroom shall we?

No hard feelings towards ANY player that wants to
leave, but like the OP says just leave quietly we dont need any sympathy, this club is so much bigger than any of the players/management.

I knew people would leave but I hoped some would transfer over and at least let us sell them for some funds. This is what is really upsetting me.

Actually gutted that McCabe is gonna leave. Not as gutted as ill be if some of the bigger players leave us right enough.
