Ashley In Player Loan Deals Between Newcastle And Rangers


Newcastle certainly like unloading players in January, and Davide Santon has moved on loan to Inter-Milan with an option for the Italian club to make the deal permanent at the end of the season, and his girlfriend Chloe Sanderson has taken a swipe at Newcastle by saying they are ruining the club because they are only interested in profits and not the players.

Chloe may be close to the truth there.

Gael Bigirimana may join Rangers on loan

The three youngsters who may leave on loan today to  Rangers FC – that’s Mike Ashley’s other club – are said to be Gael Bigirimana, Kevin Mbabu and Haris Vuckic, to strengthen the Rangers squad.

Rangers are a massive 16 points behind leaders Hearts in the Championship, but the 2nd, 3rd and 4th placed sides in the Championship are in a play off with the 11th placed team (2nd bottom) of the Scottish Premier League,  to see which club gets the second vacant spot in Scotland’s top division.

So there’s still hope that Rangers will be in the Premier League next season, and a chance to get back into Europe again, which we assume to be the main reason for Ashley’s interest in the famous Scottish club.

It wouldn’t surprise us one little but if all three players move out on loan today, but they better take their winter woollies with them.

If Mike Ashley continues his interest and investment in Rangers FC, and is allowed to do that by the Scottish FA, we suppose we could see players moving between the two clubs in the future.

So this is the first of those deals, with three young Newcastle players potentially moving north of the border for the rest of the season.

We don’t know if this is good or bad.

    Markaccus Laptop crashed. I am guessing the thinking is he has not played all season and as we now have 3 LB may as well get rid of the only one who will be on a decent wage. As usual the timing is terrible. We have no real cover at RB which Santon could have played.

    Hahaha some are now even trying to justify this Santon move now by claiming he’s injury prone. Apart from when he 1st came and this recent injury there’s not been an issue with injuries for him.

    His injury record is better than Haidara’s

    Surely you know that ST sales had slowed and they needed a story to boost the sale.

    Bishop has earned his bonus this month that for sure.

    We got monkey owner, he shoot Kevin Keegan
    He say “I know you, you know me”
    One thing I can tell you is you’ll get nowt for free”

    I do have an issue with these youngsters going to Rangers, there’s more than enough clubs in the lower leagues who take these lads and contribute to there wages rather than sending them for free to Rangers whilst we foot the bill for all the wages.

    Tequilla?!?! You’re alive!!!

    Ah yes, good old crashing computers. You can always rely on technology to bugger up a debate!

    Yes I agree. It is just another insane gamble by Chunk. He never fails to dissapoint. We have one each FB, 2 fit CBs. Then Dummet to cover CB and LB, then kids and an injury prone ryan taylor. It doesnt look good does it?

    Just burnt the tea!!!

    Anyway we don’t usually spar as although I am known to have a sense of humour I don’t get yours – not your fault.

    Yes we all on this blog want a club and team we can enjoy supporting but some give tacit support to Ashley (a diminishing group I think), some are waiting him out seeking any scraps of joy they can and others have been raging for years to absolutely avail. As I said I am of the stoic variety and feel no shame in that.

    Markaccus it gets worse if the stories of Good and Streete to Rangers on loan is to be believed.
    JC surely can`t be happy as the club seem to be sabotaging any chance he has to put a decent run together and get the job permanently

    WTF, sky report that we could ship 4 or 5 fringe players to Rangers, I thought there was a 3 player loan limit???….

    At this rate JC, Beardo and the rest of the coaching staff had better clean their kit and boots and get ready for Sunday.

    Same old carp, different day

    We can loan (5) players to rangers. 4 players plus an extra youth player.

    52.2.2 No Club may sign more than 4 loan Players (Standard, International, Emergency or Youth) from another Club (or club) in any Season. An additional Youth Loan Player may be added to this figure.

    Can’t change now – as for peeing any where on terraces I have suffered waterfalls of it on The Scratching Shed end at Leeds in 70’s and more surprisingly plodged at the old Wembley as thousands relieved themselves in the limited facilities. Now they were the days 🙂

    In the words of my current favourite group Captain Beefytits and the Lost Onions:
    “We got no place to hide
    We got no more to give
    We got to fong this man
    We got some life to live”
    Beautiful lyrics Captain Beefytits.

    thanks for that, I couldn’t remember if there was or there wasn’t….

    still JC has been well and truly shafted, reckon we’d be up the creek without a paddle should Colo, Janmaat or Moussa end up injured

    I have the impression part of ashleys negotiations re Rangers was to suggest loaning some Toon players to them…..

    It wont end with loans. To me this should be looked at. He has too much interest in both clubs.
