  1. Welcome to Rangers Jamie Murphy

    We don't know the ins/outs of either deal. UEFA has stated that permanent transfers at the end of a loan deal will be considered as if bought up front for financial fair play. So no advantage to PSG. I am not comparing us to PSG, I am using an extreme example to state that transfers are structured like this all the time. By many football clubs, for many reasons. It does not, in of itself, make our club or board a shambles. It is a good signing. Well done MA, GM and the board.

    Welcome to Rangers Jamie!! Glad I don't support that PSG shambles, they took Mbappe on loan for a whole season before they are buying him. Shambolic shambles that French crowd are.....
  3. Welcome to Rangers Jamie Murphy

    Sorry, but are you serious? What football club or business would be considered to be ripping off the customer by spending actual business revenue streams on new assets?? In a structured deal? Why should the shareholders put their hand in their pocket again, rather than spend "your" money that you have paid to the business in return for a service? Oh, and because of the way the deal is structured you are getting some of that service in advance (seeing Murphy). This board have never hidden an ambition to make the club self sustaining. Upfront investment was expected but they have funded the club and we will understand the extent of that when they convert it to shares.
  4. Has Murty already failed?

    He has won 7 from 11 games. Most seasons that is title form, albeit a few draws in the other 4 wouldn't have gone a miss.
  5. Has Murty already failed?

    Kilmarnock out fought/performed us, especially in 2nd half. But what does he do? Shore up to hold 1-0 or push on for 2nd? Pena probably best option on the bench but GM doesn't seem to fancy him at the moment.
  6. Has Murty already failed?

    William Wilton, Bill Struth, Graeme Souness, Walter Smith (and John Grieg) disagree.
  7. Has Murty already failed?

    It is. 65% (WS) vs 60% (GM).
  8. Has Murty already failed?

    Up to and including Walter Smith 5 of 9 Rangers Managers were in their first managerial appointment when they took the main job at Ibrox. None of them won more than 66% of their games. Under what criteria are we calling GM a failure?
  9. Has Murty already failed?

    I see a guy that has won 6 out of 10 games with someone else's squad. Played well at times. Changed McCrorie's position to excellent effect. Had the courage to play youngsters. Has a good honest but respectable manner. Let's judge him in May. And back him until then.
  10. Has Murty already failed?

    I can't find 8 games that he has lost. 4, this time round, out of 10.
  11. Has Murty already failed?

    No. Murty has generally conducted himself well. He has a win ratio comparable to Walter Smith (who out spent everyone in Scottish football combined) . He has not had a transfer window. What do we expect from a manager? Runs like Man City or the Mhanky Mob have been on are rare. Pick a manager. Give him time.
  12. Weekend Youth Round Up

    What age group was the 8-2 win over Liverpool? U-14s?

  14. Greatest Moment as a Rangers Fan

    Several moments of the 92-93 euro campaign. McSewgan and Hateley equalising late in the game, Nesbit's "fluke" but most of all Durrant's goal against Marseille and believing we could reach the European Cup Final.
  15. Wee Barrie has hit the winner on his debut. Did we get any kind of sell-on clause for if he does do well?
