This.  Absolutely no chance they could afford it, and why would he want to go there and stagnate. 

 

In fact, I hope we're done with dealing with them for all future transfers.

Just wish he’d taken it that one step further and called out the repeated speculation regarding our players when we’re due to play one of the OF

Now Sevco will resort to tapping up his agent.

Would’ve preferred he had explicitly called the media out instead of walking out but his response I guess treated the questioning with the contempt it deserved.

Rangers put in their box. 

 

Still say any Interest from them will just spark a few clubs down south to move. 

 

If he plays well in the sc final, I reckon he'll be gone. That will be final straw for any interested clubs.

Good. Tells it as it is, Soutter isn't an old firm sycophant. Maybe one more solid season, and he could be off to a decent Championship team, although I could see him being in demand from abroad,  like Germany or Holland.

Hopefully in the near future our young players will achieve things (Cup Finals/ Euro fitba) before they leave to a better league, not along the M8 to play in the sane footballing backwater for the rest if they'd careers.

No value in saying Naismith will play in the Cup Final, I think he will. Keep everyone else on their toes and taking the responsibility so we will barely notice Naisy scoring the 4th

I was talking to Mike Martin last night, albeit very briefly, and all the advice JS is being given is to leave Scotland if he leaves Hearts. Everyone at Dundee Utd, Hearts and within the Scotland set up know just how good he could be and that Rangers would be the wrong choice. But what does Mike Martin know?

He is correctly being very coy about Naismith but I think he will play in the cup final or at worst be on the bench and also think he will be here next season on a permanent deal. IMHO.

John Souttar did the right thing by us by extending his contract. When he does leave, maybe in the close season next year, it will be for a lot more than Sevco are able or prepared to pay. One more factor, JS is an intelligent young man who will have offers from the EPL, he is ambitious and will recognise a dead-end  like Sevco when he sees one.

No he doesn’t. But Souttar does, and that’s the point he made.

I think Souttar will end up at Newcastle. Based on absolutely nothing apart from my own thoughts. Feel free to make your own suggestions.

If John ever does leave us to go along the M8, it wont be to join Rangers that's for sure.

 

That link to Bears Den is driving me nuts. Know your place diddy teams.

 

For any Rangers fan looking in, YOU LET YOUR CLUB DIE.

In my fm game ( I know), Bournemouth take him for £8m.

Got £5m later on due to a sell on clause as well. 

 

I'd take that. 👍

Yip, 

 

If they do thier £1.5m plus Lafferty nonesense, they will be laughed at and imo a few other clubs will step forwards with more realistic bids. 

 

Giants such as Bournemouth, Cardiff Norwich, Hull, Burnley, Leeds or even a Southampton level club will come in and make rangers look like what rangers fans themselves call a "Diddy club".

I think big Soapy would suit playing in Germany tbh 

 

Failing that, I think the likes of Derby, Aston Villa, Leeds Utd, would suit John Souttar.

 

It makes me laugh how the media here go on like moving to Rangers are this massive step up. Maybe 20 years ago. Not these days.

If we do sell him we'll get maroon tress and replay screens.  Won't be going to Glasgow and won't be going for less than ,£5m.

Rangers for me could afford Soapy but that would leave them with he haw or next to nothing left

 

They will of course try to cherry pick anyone available  but thankfully we have the Kid on a long term deal which will scupper those weegie maggots attempts, which is sweet as ferk, changed days eh

I just wish there was some mechanism to make these barstewards pay the £75m to HMRC if tgey really are the same club. See how well they'd be doing with that burden around their collective necks.

Agree with the teams you mention.

 

They all try to play football based on quick passing with intelligent players.

Souttar is too good to risk progressing via Rangers.     I think Levein will tell him that and keep telling him.

 

It's big money for us when Soutter leaves.     Rangers part in that will be as spectators.

Naismith may well be looking good for fitness but Levein wont say anything now because of the risk of a set back.     Saying anything to suggest a player is already a guaranteed pick sends out an iffy message to other players.     They all deserve encouragement to compete for a pick.

I get the impression JS is an intelligent fellow. CL probably felt exasperated that anyone could think this was a flier. Plus ca change etc

Soapy will be going South when it's time to go.  Rankers have no frigging chance of securing him while he's got a hole in his arse!!!

 

Naisy - fantastic signal from CL and those on JKB recently who 'had a chat with SN'.   It would surprise me if he's not the Manager in 2 years time.

It never ceases to amaze that the Scottish media seem to think that any young player showing real potential have, as the the height of their ambition, to play for one of the Old Firm.  With the money splashing around the English game and clubs from Europe looking at the UK as a market as well, the opportunities for them has never been better and I'm quite sure JS is aware of that.
