  1. 'Incredible' progress under Wilson, says Rangers MD Robertsonpublished at 16:11

    Rangers manager director Stewart Robertson has defended sporting director Ross Wilson after a fan questioned the recruitment record at Ibrox.

    "The progress we have made since Ross Wilson has joined has been incredible on the football side of the club," Robertson said at Rangers' AGM.

    "In terms of where we are compared to where we were three years ago, we are miles forward.

    "You see the amount of work and the systems and structures and processes that we have in place behind the scenes now, it’s miles away from where we were.

    "It gives me the confidence that we’re moving forward in the right direction.”

  2. Park hints at 'unattainable' contract demands of Kent & Morelospublished at 15:20

    Rangers chairman Douglas Park has hinted that the club have so far not been able to agree new deals with Ryan Kent and Alfredo because of "unattainable terms".

    Both players are out of contract next summer and will be free to talk to other clubs in January.

    "The board have tried to negotiate with both players and there comes a stage in any negotiations where you try to settle," Park said at Rangers' AGM.

    "If the terms that people are looking for are unattainable, you’ve maybe got to accept that you’ve done your best."

    Sporting director Ross Wilson insisted that the club want to keep the duo - and revealed bids were rejected for both in the 2020-21 season.

    "The two players are two very different situations, but there is definitely a willingness from the club for the boys to stay with us; there’s definitely a willingness from the manager for them to be part of Rangers moving forward," Wilson said.

    "We rejected one offer for both players. The offered money was good, but we felt the players were of more value to our squad at that time, and we went on to be league champions in that season, so in our minds that justified the decision to be the right one."

  4. Arsenal experience prepared me for Ibrox - Banfieldpublished at 23:02 5 December

    Arsene Wenger had Neil Banfield in his backroom team with Arsenal

    Neil Banfield thinks that looking after Arsenal's reserve team under Arsene Wenger has prepared him well for the pressures of being Michael Beale's first-team assistant coach with Rangers.

    "You can feel the passion that is within the club and the drive and determination to be successful," the 60-year-old Englishman told Rangers TV.

    "You get used to working with the pressure of a high-intensity club and you can feel it straight away when you walk in the door here at Rangers."

    Banfield, who was a defender for Leyton Orient, first crossed paths with Beale when he signed him for Charlton Athletic while he was head of youth with the London club.

    "He was a 14-year-old, young, gangly left winger," he recalled. "We both went our own ways, but we kept in touch.

    "I've watched Michael grow as a coach and we reconnected at QPR. All throughout his career, he was at Chelsea with a good friend of mine, Dermott Drummy. He was given the opportunity to be QPR manager and he invited me to be part of his backroom staff.

    "It's been a really enjoyable journey. We've dovetailed really well together."

    Banfield thinks Rangers have "some great young players coming through the academy" and that this, allied to the experience and quality of the senior squad, shows promise for the rest of the season under Beale.

    "They've been very receptive to what he wants to do and the intensity," he added. "I think they're enjoying the training that Michael has put on. We can see there's a good future for us."

  5. Barisic and Croatia reach World Cup quarter-finalspublished at 18:16 5 December

    Rangers left back Borna Barisic played the full game as Croatia beat Japan on penalties to reach the World Cup quarter-finals.

    Celtic striker Daizen Maeda had opened the scoring for Japan in the first half, but Ivan Perisic equalised after the break.

    There were no further goals at full-time, and with the sides still level after extra-time, it went to penalties.

    Croatia won the shootout 3-1, with goalkeeper Dominik Livakovic saving three Japanese spot-kicks.

    Croatia will now face the winner of Brazil v South Korea in the last eight.

    Former Rangers striker Mark Hatelely says he shares some people's concerns about Michael Beale's lack of experience as a manager, having only taken charge of 22 games at QPR.

    "Absolutely, that's the the biggest and most important thing," he said on Sportsound.

    "When you're managing the club the size of Rangers, you've seen managers before with experience have struggled to negotiate the path of the club this size.

    "The political backlash and everything that happens not only the training ground but away from the club. He has to deal with all that.

  10. Rangers attacking players 'capable of more' - Bealepublished at 16:32 2 December

    Michael Beale wants a bigger contribution from Rangers' attackers as he set out his vision for incisive, entertaining football.

    "I’m excited about getting some of the attacking players with my ideas, because I think they’re capable of a little bit more and I’ve told them that," said the new Ibrox manager.

    On his style, Beale added: "It's got to be on the front foot, we have to play like the big team so we have to take the ball and be exciting to watch.

    "It’s slightly different to when I was previously here and we have got to take the ball and go and attack. I would like to see us run forward a little bit more, off the ball, and play a little bit closer together.

    “I am really excited about working with the group, I think the squad is really strong and we will see a little variety.

    "The fans should look forward to seeing the team play on 15 December."

  11. 'League is done', 'Lot of games still to play' - Your viewspublished at 13:27 2 December

    ur viewsImage source, SNS

    We asked if the title race is a lost cause for newly-appointed Rangers manager Michael Beale, whose side trail Celtic by nine points.

    Here's what some of you had to say:

    John: Firstly get match fit. Visits to Gullane Sands are in order. Dump the 4-2-3-1 formation as far too open. Recruitment been woeful so Ross Wilson needs to go. Get rid of the injury-prone players.

    Oliver: The league is done.

    David: I think Michael Beale will be good for the team with him knowing most of the players from before but has to get rid of some ageing players. The board need to back him in transfers for the right type of player and needs to promote from B team where we have some promising players, some of whom have already had successful debuts in the top team and should be encouraged.

    Frazer: It‘s never over, it’s not ideal, but it’s never over. Only if, or when, the players think that then it will be. Celtic haven’t been playing extremely well, grinding out results. It takes a couple of slip-ups and some Old Firm results to really flip things, or widen that gap. A lot of games still to play! Just hopefully more exciting ones now.

    Ronnie: With three Old Firm games still to be played it's not over. A win in January's derby puts Celtic under pressure. It's still doable.

  12. Kamara wins Finland player of year awardpublished at 10:31 2 December

    Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara has been named Finland's men's player of the year for the first time.

    The 27-year-old helped Rangers reach the Europa League final and win the Scottish Cup in 2022, as well as playing all six of Finland's Nations League fixtures as they finished second in Nations League Group B3.

    Michael Beale has made it a priority to deliver Rangers' 56th title - but is this season already a lost cause?

  15. Wilson delivers transfer 'assurance' to new managerpublished at 20:35 1 December

    Rangers sporting director Ross Wilson insists the board will back new manager Michael Beale in the transfer market.

    “Michael first and foremost wants to assess what’s here," said Wilson.

    “There is certainly an assurance if Michael wants to do something in the market, from the board’s point of view, we will try and back that as much as we possibly can."

    Beale says Rangers must always seek to enhance the squad - and highlighted Calvin Bassey and Joe Aribo as examples of savvy transfer business in his previous spell at the club.

    "I need to assess and be really honest with everybody about where their role is in the squad," said Beale.

    “We’re always looking to improve. We’re always working and looking in the transfer market.

    “There’s lots of interesting players out there. In the last couple of years, Joe Aribo and Calvin Bassey came into the club as pretty much unknowns for very low fees and in the last year we’ve done very well in terms of player trading and them going out. The conveyor belt is always in the background.

    “If everyone is fit, it’s a very strong Rangers squad. And then naturally in every window you try to edge it on and see what bits are needed."

    Asked if he can get Alfredo Morelos - who is nearing the final six months of his contract - back to form this season, Beale answered: “If he performs like he trained today, then yes.

    “It’s not just Alfredo. Can we get Kemar Roofe back playing? Because that’s two fantastic strikers we’ve probably not had firing."

  16. Beale on Gerrard's influence & his 'hands-on' coaching approachpublished at 20:17 1 December

    New Rangers boss Michael Beale has praised Steven Gerrard as a huge influence on his career - but says there are "subtle differences" to their managerial methods.

    Beale was first-team coach under manager Gerrard at Ibrox for three-and-a-half years, delivering the club's first title in a decade in 2021, and the partnership moved on to Aston Villa before Beale struck out on his own at QPR in the summer.

    “Steven has been a huge influence on me as a person, because he has very high standards and very high morals," Beale said at his Rangers unveiling.

    “In the three-and-a-half years I worked with him, he has enabled me to sit in a position like this. He brought me on a lot in terms of management and leadership. I think I added a different part to that management team which was coaching on the pitch.

    “I don’t want to compare myself to anybody. Steven is himself and will go on to become a fantastic manager with his staff.

    "This is the start of a new journey here now and there will be subtle differences.

    “Neither of us were particularly close to the players in terms of being friends, but they knew we cared for them every day. We certainly built strong feelings with the players and I think that’s the way you have to go.

    “I’m going to be very hands-on as a coach on the pitch because that’s what my skill-set is."

  17. Beale on why he chose Rangers over QPR & Wolvespublished at 19:59 1 December

    Michael Beale says when Rangers came calling it was "an opportunity I just couldn't turn down", despite having pledged his future to QPR last month after rejecting an approach from Wolves.

    “This came out of nowhere, I had a decision to make and I think it is fair to say this is a wonderful football club," said the new Ibrox manager.

    "It’s an institution, it was a Europa League finalist just six months ago and it was an opportunity I just couldn’t turn down didn’t want to turn down.

    "I wanted to come back and work with the board and the players here and unite that with the fans and move forward.

    “I apologise for disappointing the people down there, I think it is a good project but this was one I wasn’t willing to walk away from.”

    Beale, formerly first-team coach at Ibrox under Steven Gerrard, admitted he was "champing at the bit to get back up the road".

    "I loved my time here previously, lived a really big experience," he added.

    "There’s a lot of players in the dressing room who understand my ideas because we worked together previously. It was the right moment to come back."

  18. Analysis: Beale relishing pressure but needs smooth startpublished at 19:12 1 December

    Martin Dowden, BBC Sport Scotland

    Michael Beale knows the size of the challenge he has taken on and the enormity of expectation and demand that comes with it.

    It is an unrelenting environment in the goldfish bowl of Glasgow with second equalling last. In his favour is his previous experience.

    As he faced the media he insisted the pressure is exactly what led him to turn his back on Queens Park Rangers and take on a job that was "impossible to turn down".

    When directly quizzed on whether he could mount an immediate, realistic title challenge this season, it was clear he is fully aware that Rangers must hit the ground running when the Premiership resumes in two weeks.

    Beyond that, the Christmas period will likely determine whether Beale can mount a rousing revival, with a tricky initial run culminating with Celtic's visit to Ibrox on 2 January.

    His argument, a fair one, is that Celtic were significantly behind at a similar stage last season and overturned that position. It is an enormous task, though, given Celtic’s consistency.

    His priority was clear; create a clear identity on the pitch which translates as an exciting, winning side that attacks aggressively. Then see where that takes them.

    His predecessor, Giovanni van Bronckhorst lasted just over a year despite reaching a Europa League final, winning a Scottish Cup and reaching the Champions League group stage.

    That’s the standard Rangers fans are used to now, and they weren’t satisfied with that in the end as this season unravelled.

    With the title at the top of their wish list, there seems very little margin for error for their new manager as a new era dawns at Ibrox.

  19. Beale's first press conference: The key pointspublished at 18:48 1 December

    Michael Beale has been speaking to the media for the first time since his appointment as Rangers boss.

    Here are the key points:

    • He was "champing at the bit" to return to Rangers when the opportunity arose given existing relationships at the club.

    • Has been impressed with the energy of the players in training this week.

    • Wants to deliver the club's 56th title "as soon as possible" but the first priority is giving the side an identity. Also wants to improve the club's cup record.

    • He believes he has a "very strong squad" to work with when everyone is fit.

    • Has told the attacking players they can deliver more and is excited to work with them.

    • Beale said he did not ask for assurances about how much time he will be afforded to turn things around.

    • He wants to see Rangers play "like the big team" and on the front foot.
