  1. WALTER SMITH has told Kris Boyd he wants him to stay at Rangers - and guaranteed the striker a major role in his new-look side. Boyd is being chased by Championship outfit Cardiff who are expected to increase the s2.5million offer they had rejected on Friday night. The Scotland star does not want to leave Ibrox despite the arrival of three new hitmen and feels he can help Gers win the SPL and make an impact in the Champions League next season. Boss Smith shares that view and held a heart-to-heart with the player to assure him he will be a key man. The Gers gaffer knows Boyd guarantees at le
  2. I know he looked fantastic when he first arrived last season, and was playing through the middle. BUT, he did lose a hell of a lot of admirers towards the later end of the season when pushed out to the right. Is he the plaer we are looking for or needing and worthy of such a fee? Played out on the right, I'd say no, played through the middle yes. But then who then forms the mifield for us with BF, KT, BH, SD and possibly a couple of others. I think it's unfortunate we haven't sold or got rid of anone yet to get a clearer picture of whats in WS's mind for next season. Just intere
  3. " I hope he stays but i must admit having 9mill to spend on a play-maker would make me really think about letting him go.
  4. Striker Jean-Claude Darcheville has vowed to stay at Rangers and fight for a first-team place despite the arrival of plenty of competition this summer. Gers boss Walter Smith has bolstered his attacking options with the triple capture of Kenny Miller, Andrius Velicka and Kyle Lafferty this month. However, the veteran French forward insists he is happy to remain at Ibrox and prove he deserves to start games next season. Darcheville, who was the club's top scorer with 15 goals last season, said: "The fact Rangers have brought in three new strikers doesn't worry me - it excites me.

    Rangers vs Liverpool Query

    Evening Bears, I've been a Liverpool fan since the mid nineties and I'm delighted both clubs are meeting again. Was there for Walter Smith's testimonial and even saw Michael Owen miss an open goal from 6 yards at the Copeland end.. anyways I'm wanting to go down early on the day and get my photo taken with Stevie G, Torres, Carragher etc and I've never done this before. Anyone know when would be the best time to head down?? cheers
  6. Will keep these posts separate from the main thread as the thrust is linked directly with Gersnet... http://www.gersnetonline.net/newsite/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=649&Itemid=1 Tennis, golf and RFC supporter group splits boring you? Time for The_Insider to tell you of the latest info he's heard regarding any comings and goings at the club. It's all good, clean fun so please don't get too excited (or more likely depressed) at the gossip we bring you in this light-hearted look through the transfer window... As usual we'll start with the players Rangers a
  7. Everyone will have, and are entitled to their thoughts regarding the return to Rangers of Kenny Miller. Iââ?¬â?¢ve heard Rangers fans claim that they are against this signing for varying reasons : he played for Celtc, the way he ââ?¬Ë?over-celebratedââ?¬â?¢ his goal against Rangers whilst playing for Celtc, and the one I plump for, he just isnââ?¬â?¢t good enough. Now, I hope, for the clubs sake, that Miller proves me, and a whole lot of other Rangers fans wrong. I hope in 12 months time that I am sitting here admitting to eating humble pie, however, I have my reservations. Kenny Mill
  8. DAVIE WEIR is set to agree a deal that will keep him at Rangers for another year. The veteran 38-year-old defender was offered an extension by boss Walter Smith at the end of last season. http://www.eveningtimes.co.uk/sport/display.var.2330441.0.0.php
  9. http://www.gersnetonline.net/newsite/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=648&Itemid=1 After last week�s playing staff report cards, it�s time to move onto some analysis of the management team. Walter Smith is certainly the main man here so, while Ally McCoist and Kenny McDowall have played their part and deserve to share in any praise/criticism, I�ll concentrate on Walter. First off, I think we have to give praise where praise is due. When Smith took over in January 2007, the club were struggling badly, hadn�t won a trophy in over 2 years
  10. RANGERS are poised to make a shock bid for former Hearts striker Andrius Velicka. Record Sport can reveal the Ibrox club will table a s1million offer for the Lithuanian who joined Viking Stavanger in Norway from the Tynecastle club in February. Manager Walter Smith expects to get his man and is also confident the transfer of Kenny Miller will be completed this weekend. Velicka scored 14 goals in 26 games for Hearts last season, including one against Rangers at Ibrox. Smith hopes to land the 27-year-old hitman for around s1m, the same figure that took him to Norway where he scored t
  11. Jun 1 2008 Exclusive By Scott Mcdermott SPANISH star Carlos Cuellar is ready to commit himself to Rangers by signing a new long-term deal. The SPL Player of the Year has been a revelation in Glasgow since his s2.4million transfer from La Liga side Osasuna last summer. Despite Gers' dramatic collapse in the title race and defeat in the UEFA Cup Final, Cuellar has been outstanding for Walter Smith's side. His form has attracted the attention of Newcastle United as well as a host of Italian and Spanish outfits. But the 26-year-old's agent last night told MailSport there has b
  12. Not a bad thing, he will be a good squad player who can fill in a number of positions.
  13. The big man was at my work last night for his nephews wedding. Was looking good I went up to him after his meal and asked for an autograph on my mates UEFA Cup Final programme and one for my little brother then I patted him on the back and wished him luck for next season. Then at night after the party my mates asked him for a photo, so me and another two of us got a photo with him, was talking away to him. Don't want to sound negative, but at the end of the night when he was blootered I heard him mention Kenny Miller to his mate.
  14. Wants away from Burnley.... Quote from BBCi Rangers boss Walter Smith has already had a bid for Lafferty turned down but it is believed he is ready to increase the offer. Celtic have also had previous offers for the 6ft 4in forward rejected. "I understand Wolves and Rangers want to sign me and I would be thrilled to move to either club," added Lafferty. "I've heard Celtic will also be making a bid but I don't think that move will ever materialise. That last line is what I am talking about. 6ft 4' so big target man. Don't really know as I have seen nothing of him..
  15. It is a pity he won't stay as back-up but another year camped in our 18 yard box doesn't appeal to me. Best for everyone i think.
  16. Quite long, but well worth a read....... It was forwarded to me but I believe the source is the Times - I'll try and find a link later... ------------------------------------ (Part 1) Reporter Robert Watt has covered Scottish football for close to thirty years but it was as a Rangers fan he attended last week's UEFA Cup Final in Manchester.

  17. Hey, We are the CIS cup and Scottish Cup champions....but it still doesn't mask the disappointment of missing out on winning the SPL aswell as the UFEA cup. Who would you have liked to seen used more frequently by Walter smith/Ally McCoist from the Rangers reserve and youth teams? A number of players were on the bench for alot of games such as furman, lennon, fleck etc but werent used by management and I would like to hear the fans' view on these players and on others who are up and coming.
  18. Reporter Robert Watt has covered Scottish football for close to thirty years but it was as a Rangers fan he attended last week's UEFA Cup Final in Manchester. What had been a day to remember for all associated with the Ibrox club was only marginally marred by the result of the big match but some incidents of disorder in the city, subsequent exaggeration of the trouble and the ongoing 'spin' from Greater Manchester Police has prompted this heartfelt response. MANCHESTER - THE TRUE STORY The mood was sombre in the car on the way home from Manchester last Thursday. Defeat from
  19. By Andrew Dickson RANGERS' season will begin in July as a result of their failure to win the SPL title tonight in the final round of championship matches. Because they have finished second in the standings, they now face the prospect of going through two qualifying rounds to reach the Champions League group stage. Consequently, that means Walter Smith's players will get less than a calendar month off on holiday as they return for pre-season training on June 23. David WeirGers will be the highest-ranked club in the draw for the second preliminary stage, meaning they'll avoid the
  20. WALTER SMITH insists the SPL's failure to help ease Rangers' fixture congestion sufficiently led to Celtic winning the championship as much as anything. In their 67th game of an extraordinary season, the Light Blues lost the title race as they were beaten 2-0 by Aberdeen at Pittodrie. Ally McCoist, Walter Smith and Kenny McDowallThe match was Gers' third in six days and now they have a gap of just 41 hours in which to prepare for Saturday's Scottish Cup final with Queen of the South. Smith's men have already played eight times since May began and the league's refusal to extend the
  21. Walter Smith getting it in the neck. Walter has came in and has done a maginifecent job on limited resources. At the start of the season, i said we may not win the league but it certainly will be closer. Which is correct, of course i am upset about losing the league but no sour grapes, Celtic won it over the 38 games fair and square. We may not layed attractive football that everyone one wants to see this season, but this season was to balance things up, won us one cup, toke us to a european final and ran Celtic close in the league. Next season is where we start to play some more attractiv
  22. The Waiting Is Over Finally, the waiting is over, the sense of anticipation that has been with us since we defeated Fiorentina in the UEFA Cup semi-final has almost been extinguished. We are less than 48 hours away from witnessing Rangers in a European cup final for the first time in 36 years. This is the moment that we have all been waiting for. A club like Rangers requires to be regulars in the later stages of Europe and for once, we have an achievement to be proud off. I know you will all be like me, shaking like a leaf, unable to eat or sleep thinking of all the permutations in t
  23. Smith wins Writers award! No surprise. Levein and McGhee have both done well with Dundee Utd and Motherwell respectively this season but Smith has hit a huge height.
  24. ....do something historic this season?? Firstly, credit has to go to Walter Smith, Ally McCoist and the baldy one (KM) for what they have done to Rangers in the last 14 months. They have turned arguably the worst Rangers team in 20 years round into the frontmen in Scotland again and pushed us into the last 8 of europe. Yes it has not been pretty in certain games but recently the moaning has stopped about performances due to the progression the team in making in the competitons we are in. Thats what it is all about from March onwards - winning football matches. We are coming into the bu
  25. I firmly believe he deserves a Knighthood. The way he has controlled himself in such adversity is amazing. Sir Walter Smith
