Despite his age I believe he's a great signing

Good first signing. Still a Portugal international as well.

We've been far too nice for too long. About time there was some fucking bite in the side

I am worried about his age and that he isn't the same player he once was but I am happy overall with this.

That's when he was unstaunch though.

If we got one solid season out him to really strengthen us at the back and significantly improve the points we picked up, which gives Pedro breathing space for a few more transfer windows, I'd be delighted.

that would explain the comb back method he uses now. Garner and Windass are fucked then!!

Happy we seem to be doing business early & he's certainly an improvement on Bates etc 

Watched him a while ago (euros) and he seemed decent, really don't understand the massive hype behind him though

Aye, right enough, it's not like we've been crying out for a decent CB since the third division and this cunt alves has won fuck all apart from 7 league titles, 7 domestic cups and been part of the Portugal international side for years... Fuck all to get excited by there, he'll not keep kiernan out the team anyway

Tbh i think he's exactly what we need at the moment, he's still playing a lot of games at a higher standard and we need an experienced head in the centre of the back line, hill did well enough and alves has 4 years on him!

Would much prefer to get a couple of older heads who know how to win in the side especially if the rest is going to be made up with younger inexperienced players

It would be an eye-catching signing if it happens.   The trouble these days is it seems to be outstandingly easy for the media to create false news and fake news or to bend stories to suit agendas or to be as economical with the truth as they choose to be and still sleep soundly at nights.

Right now I view the story as fake news designed to sell newspapers and to stir up a form of controversy.   And in my mind it'll stay that way until the player is featured on the Rangers website wearing a Rangers top with the Club having confirmed his signature.

Newspapers making up football transfer rumours is not part of the dubious "fake news" phenomenon. The way you write suggests you've been around, haven't you seen newspapers doing this your whole life? Sometimes I think you just like to use as many words as possible.

Some people you just can't please. Fannies in our support critical of everything despite watching Kiernan cost of 15 plus goals this season through simple mistakes.

Agree with this.

We also can't understand estimate the impact of signing a proven international household name for encouraging others who may be interested but waiting to see how the club was moving forward under Pedro.

Pray this is true but like others have said will wait until he's at Auchenhowie before I believe it.

Exactly the type of centre half we've been crying out for, he's a big animal aswell as a leader. Won't accept the type of performances we seen from Toral on Wednesday that's for sure.

For those worried about his age, large section of our support wanted big Clint to get another deal and he'd be 39. Bruno is 10 times the player Hill ever was and 4 years younger.

Hope this is the first part of Pedro strengthening the spine of the team. Quality CM and proven striker to follow please.

I've said in another post weeks ago we need to be signing players who play for their country. A centre mid & centre forward of the same quality is essential. Then try to get the rest of the shitbags we can't shift to do the basics round these three.

Get Senderos signed up for another year and that's 2 top quality international centre backs for us next year, good base to start from.

Could Hills wages be paying for Alves?

Would be wording if true. Means Alves would be only new CB.

I would have kept Hill as a partner tbh, he also never put a foot wrong but if we get a younger better centreback to play alongside alves then I can't complain!

I think you've got to hope that the combined age of our first choice cb pairing is less that 75 next season... it's got to be a mix of experience and youth, no point in having old players not learning off each other at this stage

Already asked this in the thread in the transfer section but if we sign him should we immediately be looking to make him captain?

He'd be so far above anybody else in the squad in terms of quality, experience and pedigree that I think you almost have to.

Not for me, Wallace doesn't deserve that. I know we'd all like him to be more vocal on the park but I wouldn't take it off him for as long as he's in the first team.

Someone like Alves won't need an armband to be a leader.
