Mcnair linked to celtic, bidding war hopefully. If we can get our money back on him I'll be delighted

He'd surely choose Stoke, being a Rangers fan.

He'd *surely* choose a low level Championship team over a Champions League team where he'd be almost certain to win trophies?

Rangers fan or not, that would be a baffling career choice?

If you're a Rangers fan, you don't play for Celtic. And the same in reverse. The sectarian faultlines run very deep up here. The only exception I can think of in living memory is Mo Johnstone, and even then his dad supported Rangers while Mo was a Celtic supporter.

A few Catholics have played for Rangers in recent decades, but they weren't Hoops fans when they joined.

I'd say the sectarianism runs even deeper when he's a Northern Irish Rangers supporter.

Can't see him going there at all.

Rangers might go in for him straight swap with Morelos 🙂

Morelos has got a bit of the devil about him. I very much doubt he'd come here, but he'd give opposition defences the s**ts and I'd love to see him terrorising Championship keepers at set pieces.

Pritty sure hes off to Lille for big money, but would be perfect for us like.

As stated above, he'd either stay or go to Stoke over going to Celtic if he is a genuine Rangers fan and has particular alliances

Rangers bought Kemar Roofe yesterday so doubt they are looking at an expensive championship striker.

Britt will see out his contract. You aren't going to get anyone who will take on his wages.

Let's just hope he has a good season and wants to extend on more reasonable wages. But I'd hazard a guess and say he will find a better contract on a free in a years leaving us with a hugely expensive nothing. 15 mil fee and about 7-8 million in wages over 4 years.

    • Similar thoughts to Changing Times. I don't have that much interest in returning until the crowds are back properly.
    • I cannot believe some are still trying to defend Britt! Must be to save face. As a player, he has gone backwards. 2 goals in 2 games can easily be misconstrued. His first, everyone’s granny could have bscored that. The penalty? Good penalty. This fails to cover up his deficiencies. The guy should be working on his game - maybe he is. Frankly, if this is the case it isn’t working. He is one of the weakest links we have.
    • Thanks for that. Seen a few reports about the test games but they only tell you about the seating arrangements 
    • Hey Erimus, fancy missing out Mel Nurse. A Boro Captain too. A bit before your time 😳
    • There will need to be some serious psychological rather than tactical decisions made by NW for the Swans game. Was it fatigue, was it the weather, was it those misses that could have seen us three nil up by thirty minutes and cruising at Huddersfield? I am fully in Warnock's camp but there is a question mark over his use of Subs at times. He usually calls it right but there are now a couple of occasions when he has used them poorly and if fatigue is a contributory reason then he has to start using more than three and more importantly he has to start changing and influencing games sooner with them. Some tough calls to be made and it is imperative that he does it without favour. There needs to be a clear message of shape up or lose your place. Easier said than done of course with such a small and inexperienced squad but below par mediocrity must have consequences regardless of status or reputation. For clarity that isn't aimed just at Britt who is the obvious target after Saturday, there were a few others who struggled for whatever reason.
