  1. STEVE Davis last night revealed he wants to extend his stay at Rangers. The Northern Ireland international is out of contract at the end of next season but is keen to get tied up on a new long-term deal. Davis knows a contract extension could depend on Craig Whyte's proposed takeover being completed and insists that is more important than his contract talks. The 26-year-old midfielder is one of Rangers most prized assets, along with goalkeeper Allan McGregor and Madjid Bougherra, and would attract interest from the Premier League if the Ibrox outfit were forced to cash in during th
  2. ALLY McCOIST admits he'd never have dreamed of being Rangers manager when he hung up his boots to become a telly celebrity. Now the Ibrox gaffer-in-waiting believes he has finally shed the cheeky chappie image that made him a star on Question of Sport - and feels ready to defy the cynics who don't think he has the experience to succeed Walter Smith. In an interview to be broadcast on ESPN, McCoist said: "If you had said to me 10-15 years ago I'd have the opportunity to manage this club I would have thought you were mad. Absolutely no way. "Fifteen years ago I probably started doing
  3. WALTER SMITH'S final act as Rangers boss will be to try and bring Kyle Bartley back from Arsenal. SunSport can reveal Smith has pledged to successor Ally McCoist he'll make a call to Gunners manager Arsene Wenger. And McCoist hopes that will lead to stopper Bartley returning north on a season-long loan. The 19-year-old proved a big hit during his nine games for Gers before cruelly being struck down with a medial ligament injury in the final moments of the home Europa League tie against PSV Eindhoven. It came just three days before the League Cup final triumph over Celtic and en
  4. SPL - Rangers baffled by royal tribute Sat, 30 Apr 16:13:00 2011 Rangers could face FIFA action over a Royal Wedding tribute printed on the shirt of captain David Weir. The defender wore a shirt paying tribute to Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge during Saturday's 5-0 win away to Motherwell in the Scottish Premier League. The embroidered slogan said: 'Congratulations William & Catherine 29th April 2011.' The act is technically in breach of FIFA regulations, which prevent players from making religious, political or personal statements, and it is understood W
  5. Matt Dickinson Chief Sports Correspondent 17 minutes ago It was the game of zero tolerance against sectarianism, when police snatch squads would target troublemakers at Ibrox in the aftermath of the bomb sent to Neil Lennon, the Celtic manager. A day when Rangers and Celtic would stand united against any form of bigotry or intolerance and instruct their supporters to focus on the football. Enough was, finally, enough. So what did Rangers do? They allowed a small Union Jack flag to be placed in every seat of a home supporter. There were 40,000 of these flags, supplied by the Rangers Suppor
  6. HE could barely sign autographs for crying. Vladimir Weiss had tears rolling down his face as he sat among Rangers fans on Sunday. But it wasn't the 0-0 draw with Celtic that turned him into an emotional wreck. It's the thought of never playing for the Ibrox club again. Weiss, 21, joined Walter Smith's side from Manchester City at the start of the season. But after breaking a bone in his foot last month his time at the club is effectively over. That hasn't brought an end to his love affair with the Ibrox fans, though, as he joined them for the Old Firm title crunch.
  7. RANGERS fans have been warned that the eyes of the world will be on Ibrox today and they have been urged not to do anything which would further besmirch the club's name in the wake of being charged with two counts of sectarian singing. The result of the Old Firm game will go a long way to determining who wins this the Scottish Premier League title and Strathclyde Police are bracing themselves for what they say could be a "perfect storm", while the clubs are doing everything they can to head off any trouble. Following mayhem on the pitch and off it during last month's Scottish Cup replay,
  8. Peterborough United ââ?¬â?? Craig Mackail-Smith could be on his way to Glasgow Rangers this summer Peterborough United's in-form striker Craig Mackail-Smith is a summer transfer target for Rangers according to a source close to the player. The 27-year-old front man sits proudly at the top of the League One goal scoring charts this season, with 25 goals in 41 league appearances for the Posh. His impressive performances have attracted the attention of a number of potential suitors with Gers boss Walter Smith reportedly dispatching scouts to run the rule over Mackail-Smith in recent

  10. WANTAWAY Rangers star Madjid Bougherra has been warned he's going NOWHERE. Algerian stopper Bougy revealed last week his plan to quit Ibrox this summer. But Gers boss Walter Smith last night warned that contracted players will NOT be sold - and Bougy admitted he is NOT a certainty to leave the club at the end of the season. Smith said: "The whole thing about the summer will be about the club's overall circumstance. "Everybody says that people will be leaving but I don't see how we have the capability to let anyone leave. "We have reached the stage where if we sell players a
  11. From The Evening Times. I don't know why any EPL club would want WS going by his record when in charge of Everton. His tactics wouldn't work down there. Teams play fast, attacking football down there. Out of interest, who do you think this club is? Villa? Newcastle? West Ham?
  12. I hope he is not frightened into bending down to the tims as he was at that decision.
  13. By Andrew Smith, Tom English and Moira Gordon Ibrox annus horribilis goes from bad to worse but somehow championship title is still a live prospect SANCTIONS from UEFA over sectarian singing, a takeover that remains in the balance, bankers putting on the squeeze and scares over a tax case that could spiral Rangers into insolvency. Manager Walter Smith would be forgiven for dreading what next might assail his beloved club. "I hope there's not anything that comes next. There can't be a 'next'," says Smith. Remarkably, what could come next is Rangers snaring their third consecutive title. F
  14. I'VE never been one to sit on the fence. Even if that means upsetting a mate, I'll tell it straight. I'd like to think I'm pals with both Neil Lennon and Ally McCoist, so this week's events make this column a tricky one to write. That will NEVER stop me being honest. I simply can't understand why the SFA let Coisty off the hook. The SFA reckon there's not a case to answer. Sorry, but that's just miles out. There IS a case to answer. McCoist was the one who initiated the bust-up with Neil Lennon, he sparked it. What he said has nothing to do with anyone else. He'll t
  15. Every day as the wife goes into the kitchen to put the spuds on the gas I take the chance to lie long out on the couch and zap the telly on to Deal or no Deal. The fact that it is the only time of the day that I get the chance to hold the remote control is totally irrelevant to this story. As I lay on the couch watching the end of countdown and that beautiful bird that hangs up the numbers or letters I must have suckled into a light sleep. I then heard Noel Edmunds welcoming the east wing and then the west wing. I couldn�t believe it when I saw. Ally McCoist Walter Smith Martin Bain
  16. From The Daily Mail. Fair do's.
  17. Rangers have been handed a boost with the news Lee McCulloch will be fit for the club's title run-in. It was originally feared the midfielder, who underwent an operation earlier this year to remove a cyst on his knee, would be sidelined for the remainder of the season. However his manager Walter Smith confirmed on Friday that the 32-year-old would be in contention to play in Rangers' SPL fixture away to Aberdeen on Wednesday, April 13. The player's return will see him available to feature in eight of Rangers' remaining SPL matches, with three games scheduled before a further five a
  18. Perhaps this has been posted already, tho' I don't see it. http://www.football365.com/story/0,17033,8734_6856123,00.html SOUNESS TRIBUTE TO HOLMES BACKING Posted 06/04/11 17:53EmailPrintSave Hamilton v Rangers. Click here to bet. Graeme Souness has hailed former Rangers chief executive David Holmes for his courage and bravery in making him Ibrox manager 25 years ago. The arrival of the Scotland captain from Sampdoria transformed the fortunes of a club who had not won the Scottish title for eight consecutive seasons. Souness, who replaced Jock Wallace, soon brought
  19. Darrell King Share 4 Apr 2011 Almost a year ago, this newspaper broke the story that Rangers were under investigation from HMRC over the use of Employment Benefit Trusts for over a decade. In the same article, we said that Lloyds Bank only had one plan for the club ââ?¬â?? cuts, cuts and more cuts. This would leave a team made up of players on low wages, with the squad supplemented by kids from Murray Park. Star names would go and, on top of that, the stadium was being neglected. We said that administration was a possibility, and that a sale would be unlikely unless someone
  20. POLICE will issue the Old Firm with a list of banned songs as they begin their biggest crackdown on sectarianism. Both Celtic and Rangers will be asked to distribute the list to fans and ask them to stop singing them. The banned songs are thought to include The Famine Song, The Billy Boys and other tunes that glorify terror groups such as the IRA and UDA. Senior Strathclyde police sources say officers are ready to wade into stands to arrest offenders. A source said: "The police and the clubs need to work together and there has to be change in attitude by fans. "Thousands si
  21. The following article has been doing the rounds for a few days, and as usual it's full of lies and incorrect and misleading information. Just because Murray has transferred his shares to an off-shore trust company does not mean that he is not the beneficial owner. Most of his Murray Sports shares have been owned by IFG Nominees CI Ltd for a number of years, and I have never given it a second thought. That's the same company that owns the shares in MIH, and not the one mentioned in the article. Just because "Declan" is a director of the company does not mean he owns the club and it
  22. The latest from Traynor with a nice little dig at the end: http://blogs.dailyrecord.co.uk/jimtraynor/2011/03/are-lloyds-trying-to-sell-rang.html
  23. The Rangers Supporters Trust have called on Lloyds Bank to make clear their plans as Craig Whyte's takeover bid hangs in the balance. The �£33million deal will see the Scottish tycoon take over 75% of Sir David Murray's shareholding, with London-based property developer Andrew Ellis becoming a 25% partner. However, it is understood the bank's desire for an 'exit payment' of more than �£1m is just one of the key stumbling blocks and patience is fast running out. Whyte has targeted Thursday for the deal to be concluded by which time Rangers supporters are expected to be told th
  24. Manchester United are favourites to win the �£8million race for Blackpoolâ��s sought-after midfielder Charlie Adam, who plays for Scotland against Brazil at the Emirates on Sunday. United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has bided his time for 25-year-old Adam, who was the subject of a bidding war between Tottenham and Liverpool in the last transfer window. But after discussions with Walter Smith - Adamâ��s former boss at Rangers - Ferguson will enter the race for the player as he seeks a long-term successor to Paul Scholes. Blackpool will not stand in his way of moving at the
  25. Craig Whyte has warned Rangers that only a swift conclusion to his takeover will give Ally McCoist the chance to make significant summer signings - avoiding the bleak scenario predicted by Walter Smith earlier in the week. While the prospective owner is willing to fund half-a-dozen signings, sources close to the deal insist this will only happen if he is in position soon.
