  1. Dave King Press Conference on Monday

    King is saying that the share issue will be on the basis of 1 for 1, to raise £16m, so the price will be 20p a share (80m new shares at 20p a pop)
  2. Dave King Press Conference on Monday

    I'm not certain about that aspect of it. However, UEFA (and possibly the SFA), may have put the club on notice that they must fund the deficit (£6m?) in line with UEFA monitoring periods at the end of June and the end of September in order to avoid sanctions.
  3. Dave King Press Conference on Monday

    If I understand the BBC report on King's press briefing, the new funding/investment is required to meet UEFA's licensing requirements rather than anything to do with investing in the team. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/44030906
  4. Club statement

    That's the obvious conclusion. It's the same Board who were quick enough to say that they couldn't reduce celtic's allocation at Ibrox.
  5. I certainly rate Middleton. I saw him play for Scotland in an U19 game earlier this season and he was Scotland's best player. He strikes me as being similar to Ryan Fraser at Bournemouth, not the biggest, but still strong, quick, direct, and with an eye for goal.
  6. Follow Rangers Shareholders Limited

    You should get an idea of Club1872's actual admin costs when their accounts (to 30/06/17) are published in the next few days. They have been lodged with Companies House, but have still to made available to the public. https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/SC476150/filing-history
  7. Hummel

  8. I watched him play for Scotland U19s against France a few months ago. He was Scotland's best player. I'd describe him as a Ryan Fraser type. Quite short, but still strong, quick and with an eye for goal.
  9. ***Official Rangers v Motherwell Match Thread***

    The team's not great but will finish no worse than third.
  10. Club Statement

    "Concomitant" Check the chairman's speech from the 2016 AGM around 4' 28" in. I don't know if it is King himself acting as a smart-ass with a wide vocabulary, or Traynor, as King's scriptwriter, acting as a smart-ass with a wide vocabulary
  11. Jason Holt

    He's a decent player in a winning team, where he can keep the ball moving, linking play and creating chances, however he can't defend, nor is he able to roll up the sleeves and win the physical battles when it's required.
  12. ***Official Rangers v Kilmarnock Thread***

    The first clip suggests that Jack put the knee into Broadfoot, but the second shows that he was pulling his leg away as Broadfoot was repeatedly trying to stamp on his feet.

    From another angle
  14. Youth Round Up

    I did go to the Oriam today to watch the U15's and U17's. I watched the first half of the U17s (ht. 1-1) and the second half of U15s (ht 0-0). It looks like I should have watched the games the other way round. Rangers were the better team during the first half of the U17s in terms of possession and territory, but Hearts had the better chances with Nicky Hogarth making a couple of sharp saves. Hearts went ahead in the last minute of the half when the Rangers defence misjudged a long ball leaving the Hearts striker with a clear run in on goal. However Rangers hit back immediately when Zack Butterworth cut in from the right wing and scored from a tight angle. I was told that the first half of the U15s game had been pretty dire, spoiled by a strong cross wind. Hearts were the better side for the first half hour of the second half, with better movement and pace, and scored their three goals in quick succession. The third was a screamer from 25 yards into the top corner. Rangers finally got their act together in the last 10 minutes, earning a penalty which was well saved by the Hearts keeper, then scoring a consolation goal in the final seconds of the game.
