Rangers defender Gregory Vignal is excited about the forthcoming derby game against Celtic.
The French defender believes that the derby is the biggest local grudge match in the world, and is eager to sample the mood once more.
"What an atmosphere!" asserted Vignal.
"I have been in Liverpool-Everton and Barcelona-Espanyol but there is no comparison; in Glasgow it is stronger.
"We will play with a great trust. This season we have played each other four times and won two each.
"This weekend is the decider. You only have to play once to realise what this match means to the fans."

well done on getting a quote and news source in there dilly

today mcleish was quoted along the lines of saying, the derby match, i think its 6 this season, is too much for the two teams and that its draining there energy, and thats why we do so bad in europe. the cheek lol..

he will be really happy about playing, especially as liverpool dont want him. hes playing in midfield for them, just to give then a little bit width.

i cant see him staying beyond the end of this season though

Deividas Cesnauskis (pictured), Saulius Mikoliunas and Marius Kizys joined the club recently on short-term loan contracts after being recommended to Robertson by the club's new paymasters.

at hearts, its when they get a good player, they will leave, its been the case for ages. about 7 or 8 years ago. they had cameron, mc cann, ritchie and so, and i think they beat rangers in a final. cant say for sure though.

and they all left, and recently. with levien leaving, a few of there best players followed him to leicester

i forget the guys name, but they guy who bought them must have a interest scouting out a few good players for them.

wonder if he will continue to do this, but for this time, i think robertson is happy with the players he got

Aberdeen have agreed a pre-contract with Dunfermline goalkeeper Jamie Langfield.

Langfield has agreed a three-year deal at Pittodrie and will make the move to Aberdeen in the summer.

Dons boss Jimmy Calderwood is a big fan of Langfield and is delighted to have agreed a deal for the custodian.

"I am delighted to have signed Jamie for three years," Calderwood told the Evening Express.

Langfield hasnt been first choice at dundee, there number 1 is a guy called derek soutar.

"I have watched Jamie a few times in reserve matches and he performed very well.

playing in reserve matches shows him not being number 1.

moving to a team which already has 2 keepers shows there is going to be a fight for the number 1 spot.

if he hasnt been getting it at dundee, i aint sure how he can be no1 at aberdeen.

perhaps one of there keepers is leaving.

Scottish giants Rangers have secured the long term future of Fernando Ricksen on a new four year deal.

The Dutch midfielder was out of contract in the summer and, as such, could have agreed pre-contract terms with any club he chose.

However Rangers have now tied the 28-year-old down until 2009 after they rebuffed an approach from Premiership side Everton in the transfer window.

Am suprised Ricksen has signed a new deal, it looked so much like he was going to go, and with Everton leading the chase. maybe due to them getting arteta (i aint sure whats happening with him when the season ends) they lost interest

with barry ferguson signing for rangers, i think its been a boost to the club. and is some sort of ambition being shown. hes felt, i can stay now, things are improving a little

posted on Feb, 22 2005 @ 03:56 PM
noticed they have also secured Khiznavilli on a new deal too. I doubt he will always be first choice, hes good to have on the bench though, in the case of some1 may get injured. hes a good versatile player who can play along the back, and has featured in midfield before too..

i wonder if mr bean (arveladze) will get a new contract

posted on Feb, 22 2005 @ 05:48 PM
no idea about the player rangers are supposivley interested in, he scored two goals against scotland recently, and would have also played against hearts when they where in Europe. so he would have been easy to spot and hear about.

cant see a move happening though, as they have a fair ammount of midfielders

Ugandan defender Joel Kitamirike has been dropped to the reserves to help him regain match fitness.

Dundee boss Jim Duffy made the decision following the East African's debut in the in the 4-0 defeat to Hibernian.

Duffy did not blame his new signing for the defeat but was keen for Kitamirike to regain his fitness in the reserve team.


posted on Feb, 23 2005 @ 11:54 AM
sounds like the player was thrown in, not completly fit and they got hammered. i havent seen the highlights but although Duffy is not making him the scapegoat, he is bound to feel that the new player wasnt ready for it, a mistake on his part.

Least this way, getting a few reserve games, will get him fit for his next match, which cant go as bad as the thrashing they got from hibs

Rangers are reportedly on the trail of Montpellier's African winger Fode Mansare.

His impending availability on a free transfer has sparked a wave of interest in his services with rumours in France suggesting Rangers are keen on the Guinean.

Hutton suffered the injury when attempting to win the ball from Gary Hay and Gers chief Alex McLeish confirmed the defender will go under the surgeon's knife immediately.

Rangers star Gavin Rae looks set to miss the rest of the season after being diagnosed with tendonitis.

The former Dundee man has been battling back from knee surgery - but the strain on his other leg has apparently taken its toll and Rae will have to wait until next season to play again.

"It has now been some seven months since Gavin had cruciate ligament surgery to his left knee," manager Alex McLeish told the club's official website.
