What a difference 12 months has made for Rangers

This time 12 months ago, almost to the day, I was sitting down to put together my first piece for Shoot on all things Rangers. The club had just announced five new loan signings from Newcastle United, the boardroom was in turmoil following Dave King’s EGM requisition a few weeks earlier, and the football on display was fairly brutal. It wasn’t a great time for any fan of the club. There was still worse to come over the...

Rangers: Which out-of-contract players should get a new deal?

As the calendar ticked over from 2015 into 2016, a number of Rangers players saw themselves become eligible to talk with potential suitors over a move in the summer. Cammy Bell, Nicky Clark, David Templeton and Nicky Law will all be free agents at the end of the season and, while it looks like the injury-hit Ibrox careers of Bell and Templeton are coming to an end, there is a chance that Mark Warburton may see fit to offer Law, and...

Rangers quick to make their moves in the transfer window

2016 isn’t even a week old yet, but it has already been an action-packed start to the month for Rangers. The second half of the season started in a similar vein to the first with a resounding 6-0 win at the Cheaper Insurace Direct Stadium against Dumbarton. After what was arguably the most impressive performance of the season so far, Mark Warburton now turns his attention to strengthening his squad ahead of the Scottish Cup...

Rangers need to tweak to escape mini-slump

As the 2015 draws to a close and managers draw up their transfer window shopping lists, Rangers find themselves in a mini-slump in the race for the Scottish Championship. A haul of five points from a possible 12 has seen Hibs draw level with Mark Warburton’s side. Draws with Livingston and Morton, followed by a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Falkirk, could see the Easter Road men leapfrog the Gers and go into 2016 with a three-point...

Rangers boss Warburton right to slam “disrespectful” journalists

Mark Warburton and his Rangers side have done a fantastic job of firing back at their critics over the last fortnight, with two 4-0 wins and a blast at certain sections of the media over what the manager believes was “disrespectful” reporting of Fulham’s supposed interest in luring Warburton back over the border. Consecutive 4-0 Ibrox triumphs over St Mirren and Dumbarton, in the space of three days, quickly ended...

Rangers need a striker and defensive midfielder in the transfer window

After a blistering start to the season under new boss Mark Warburton, Rangers have seen results take a little dip in recent weeks. Earlier this season, the talk before games was how many the team would rack up in an easy win; bookmakers must have made a fortune of people backing seven, eight and nine-goal victories. The recent draw at Livingston’s fantastically-named Tony Macaroni Arena wasn’t as much down to the hosts...
