Has played 7 games so far, conceded 1 goal after 6 shutout's in a row. 

I know he's playing for a massive club in the "wrong" league but I have a feeling we are going to regret letting him go big time. 

On a side note, £8 million for Worrall? Then how much is Bates really worth? With it being a free transfer, we won't even have a buy back, or sell on percentage.

Bates was growing into a good solid no nonsense defender, it seemed like his choice to leave but yes he could have been a first pick by now.

We didn’t “let him go”.

He turned us down to sign somewhere else.

Did we offer him a contract? If we did, was it the sort of contract you would expect for a first team Rangers player?

Pennies comparatively to what Hamburg offered.

We offered him 3 or 4k I think. He'll be on at least 3 times that.

It's probable that he is playing more first team games there than he would have done with us. I hope he does well and comes back and  at some point plays again for us. He looks much more comfortable on the ball than he did when he was with us .

He’s playing more than he would have played here. Goldson and Katic over him every day of the week.  I did like him as a no nonsense back up though and worral is still an improvement on him aswell

I quite liked him but I.dont think he's better than any 3 we have the now so I doubt he'd have played

Bates is welcome to wander into a shop on the Reeperbahn, buy the biggest dildo they've got and go home and fuck himself.

Where’s that shop?

He was told he wouldn't be first choice which is absolutely correct. 

If we had been going into this season with Bates as one of our main centre halves people wouldn't of been happy.

I'd have kept him but he wasn't that good that I'm going to be pining after him

I thought Bates had potential but in my opinion both Goldson and Katic are better than him. 

The fact he was one of our better performers last season says more about how poor we were. The moment he decided not to stay even though he new Gerrard was coming in was when I stopped really caring about him to be honest.

It has been reported by Bates of the process that took place. Hamburg came to watch him at Ibrox a few times - they contacted him - whilst that was going on Rangers or Murty were dragging their heels - and low & behold he gets talked I to going to Hamburg. 

Not the first time a player has been given an offer he canny refuse.

Out of curiosity what do you think that makes Bates worth.

He wasn't going to be a first team player...
