The only signings we should be making after the 1st of January are bosmans for next summer. We dont need any more players this season.

Celtic youth. Been with Livingston since he was 16 according to Wiki.

Wiki states 20 in 72 appearances for Livingston. Also signed a 2 year deal in the summer so a fee would be involved I presume.

RANGERS will consider a swoop for Livingston striker Marc McNulty in January ? if gaffer Ally McCoist is handed cash to spend in the transfer window.

The Ibrox boss is keen to strengthen his squad as they home in on the League One title and promotion to the Championship.

McCoist is a long-time admirer of McNulty, who has scored 39 goals in 72 starts for the Lions in that division, and believes the frontman is capable of leading Gers? charge back to Scotland?s top flight.

The 21-year-old had agreed a £150,000 switch to Derby 12 months ago after netting for the Rams as a trialist ? but the deal collapsed when Livi demanded a bigger fee.

However, Record Sport understands McNulty has a release clause in his contract which McCoist is ready to meet if he?s given funds by new CEO Graham Wallace.

Wallace warned the Rangers manager at this month?s agm his playing staff budget could be cut going into the New Year.

However, McCoist hopes if he can shift some of the club?s fringe players, such as Emilson Cribari and Dean Shiels, in January ? money could become available for McNulty.

He?s on a list of potential targets as McCoist tries to plan ahead for the last leg of Gers? journey to the top flight next season.

And, despite having two years left on his Livingston contract, it?s understood McNulty is aware of McCoist?s interest and would be keen on a move to Ibrox.

He hit a double in Livi?s last match against Queen of the South to take his tally for the season to 13, while Rangers toiled in a 1-1 home draw with Stranraer on Boxing Day.

McCoist, meanwhile, has allowed winger Barrie McKay to go on a month?s loan to Morton.

The 18-year-old has rarely featured at Ibrox this season and has been snapped up by new boss Kenny Shiels.

I don't think we should be signing any one in January.

It's not needed unless it's genuine quality - which we won't get because we can't afford it.

Filling the squad up with yet more average joes is absolutely pointless. We have too many of them already.

Ryan Hardie, Tom Walsh, Callum Gallagher and Danny Stoney to name a few.

All forwards or wingers.

Nicky Clark, Jon Daly, Andy Little and even the superhero Lee Mcculloch all forwards, so what makes McCoist think he needs another forward?

What about the 4 central midfielders dumped in the midfield? What about a centre half at right back? What about the striker/left midfielder/centre mid ( delete as app ) Mcculloch at centre half?

All positions that need looked at before McCoist is given cash, in fact McCoist should be gagged until February the 1st to stop him talking about, talking to or thinking about spending cash

Really? I remember being singularly unimpressed when we signed Big Marv from them. But the more I saw him the more I came round. Considering Big Eck was downsizing at the time he was just what we needed fro the SPL.

buster
28-12-2013, 11:36
The way GW talked about finances, the January window is going to see a net decrease in the wagebill and if there are any transfer fees, a net income.

So if there was to be a fee paid for McNulty or anyone then we'd probably have to sell and there aren't many players that other clubs will be willing to pay for. The obvious one is Lee Wallace.

The other thing is getting 'fringe players' off the books isn't always easy and often involves a pay-off, this would have to be included in the arithmetic.


Whether there is anything to this McNulty story I don't know but the one encouraging aspect is his age.
What isn't so encouraging is that we continue not being able to improve many players.

johnoblue
28-12-2013, 11:42
20 goals in 72 games, unless I am missing something here that to me is not a particularly good strike rate, it equates to one goal every 3.something games, what is so good about that, as someone who has connections to scum FC and fairly obviously a supporter, it would be a massive big no from me

What is worrying with the picture you paint is that we don't seem to have been able to improve Shiels and Templeton since they joined. In fact they've probably went backwards.

Injury has contributed but how many times does this happen to us.

1. Decent looking player joins.

2. Can't seem to reproduce previous form.

3. Gets injured.

4. Fades. Goes backward as a player.

5. Sold for a lot less than bought for or paid off.


It's happened so many times during the years, it's not one-offs, there is something wrong with the football operation.
The one positive this season is that at least we are fitter which makes you wonder what was going on last season.

It also contributes negatively to our financial position.

It also contributes negatively to our financial position.

When ex-players and managers come out and say it's different at Rangers from most other clubs, or more difficult, it's always put down on here as "just sticking up for his mates at the club" or such like.

We've had a multitude of outspoken players at Rangers over the years, guys who would never hold back from giving their opinion regardless of how others feel about it. The times our training or football operations are criticised are nowhere near as often as the times we're told it's just more difficult to play under the pressure at Rangers than at a "normal" club.

Why are so eager to dismiss the views of those who have experienced it? As you say, your example happens a lot - why isn't the obvious explanation the most feasible one?

Managers want players. The board decides if there's money to buy/pay them.

Your determination to blacken Ally is sickening and odd.

Maybe he's just having a dig at the fans?

Your post count seems very apt.

I really cannot get my head around this (If its true, which I doubt) We are in no position what so ever to be "Swooping" for anyone, Especially not this season where the league is now a foregone conclusion. What we should be doing is off loading deadwood. Not adding to it.

Is there something wrong with Rory McAllister? Find it totally odd that we haven't made a move for him.

On the day that we got put into SFL 3, a friiend of mine, who is a director of a lower league club told McCoist and Green, that if he was in their position the first thing he would do would be to sign Rory McAllister. He reckoned we'd have got him at a very reasonable price and without having to go over the top in wages. At the level we were playing at last season and this season, McAllister may have been a decent signing.

Define old school bears and name this song.

I used to stand on the terraces when we sang at Celtc fans "go home ya huns."

I've never referred to us as huns and can't think of a song where we do.

Older Bears in my work in their 50's call us h*ns pretty freely, older guys who grew up where i did used it all the time, from both sides. No one got offended. I grew up with people calling me a hun, i didn't get offended, i didn't care, it meant nothing to me. But then i was calling them t*rriers and f*nians and they didn't seem to mind either. We all got on.

I am well aware of why Celtic are the real h*ns but again, i don't care.

The song is posted above in a youtube clip. Nothing major. No biggy.

Still never heard us old school bears referring us to the huns,like i tried to touch upon,most probably the song was a pish take.

We're the only club that could get Messi and turn him into a left back, we never seem to improve any player we bring in, they tend to either stagnate or go backward, and then we need to pay them off. As no one will buy them. Unlike the other mob, they can sell their pish for profit, most of the time.

Editor - ''Any story about the huns''

SM- 'Nothing happening boss, not a fecking thing''

Editor - ''Well put a story about signing some fanny, make sure its an ex-tic that will wind the bassa's up''

Said in jest but probably true :)

And then there's a right few who leave for a team of lower standing with poorer facilities and less resources and then get better?

Can't get my head round it.

I don't buy into that.

That shower of shite have lost loads on players, I think there was a thread on here about it not long ago.

I'd hope we have a vetting system in place so we can discount rhabids completely. ****s like that shouldn't have the honour of representing our proud club. Struth would be turning in his grave.

Is there something wrong with Rory McAllister? Find it totally odd that we haven't made a move for him.

Is he not the guy who has a good job and is not interested in full time football.

That means Rangers fans and not loyalist prisoners?

So by your rational then every time the word Fenian is mentioned it does indeed
mean Celtc fans and Catholics and not Republican terrorists?

H couldn't hold it in any longer. Banned now I see:D

Peterhead let him finish his trade which Brechin were also happy to do before Peterhead , i'd imagine he'd be qualified by now though , but any time i've saw him he's always looked to be a bit better than what was around him .



Story I heard is that he was offered full time football with Aberdeen but knocked it back cos he could earn more playing part time and continuing with his trade ( joiner, I think).
Good player from what I've seen.
