Elgin City next up at Ibrox

Welcome to Rangers David Cooper Templeton!
















It’s been a hectic last week as a number of players have come in and out of the Rangers team ahead of our 14-month transfer embargo. And to think some football fans still believe we’ve not been properly punished!


Carlos Bocanegra has been moved out on a season long loan to Racing Santander but according to the man himself, he’s sees this purely a loan and fully intends to come back next season. Dorin Goian had already gone out on loan which means we will be seeing a brand new centre-back pairing in the season ahead and hopefully Ross Perry is one of them as we embark on growing a team to take us back to the very top of Scottish Football.

Late last night Rangers did manage to secure the signing of our “number one target” the very exciting David (Cooper) Templeton from Hearts. There is no doubt we needed a bit more width in the team to take some of the pressure off of young Barrie McKay, so he is a very welcome addition to the team. As expected we did also lose Maurice Edu but unlike a few of his previous teammates he left through the front door. Kirk Broadfoot left by mutual consent, however Lee Wallace has decided to stay so that is fantastic news.

So considering everything we’ve had to deal we have assembled a decent squad by going out and buying some of the best talents in Scottish football as well as a few decent foreign prospects.


For a full rundown of our squad and who came and left, the Rangers Wikipedia page for this season is bang up to date. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2012%E2%80%9313_Rangers_F.C._season


During the week Rangers easily dispatched of Falkirk by 3 goals to nil with yet another goal from Andrew Little and a fine double from Lee McCulloch taking his Rangers career goals to 99.

This coming weekend we welcome top of the table Elgin City to Ibrox last on Sunday night. It’s a 4:30pm kick-off back in Glasgow meaning an 11:30pm kick-off for us here in Hong Kong. Not great, but as usual the match will be shown live in Amici via RangersTV.
