Juninho Bacuna: Huddersfield fans react to Rangers transfer reports

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has admitted that the Ibrox club are zoning in on a new midfield signing with Huddersfield star Juninho Bacuna the increasingly likely option.

Speaking to the press ahead of the Ibrox club’s Europa League Playoff clash with Armenian side Alashkert, Gerrard claimed “strong” progress had been made with a new recruit.

This coincided with a Scottish Sun report which claimed that the Gers were reigniting interest in Bacuna, 24, who had been linked to Ibrox last season.

Reputable transfer journalist Alan Nixon would then appear on the scene talking up the move and provided several details to salivating fans.


It looks like the deal will be inexpensive and is now likely to be permanent as the Gers appear to make their move for the Dutch-born Curacao midfielder.

But whilst there’s been mixed reviews at Rangers as many lick the wounds of an apparently failed bid for Heerenveen playmaker Joey Veerman, what do the Huddersfield faithful make of the move?

Bacuna joined the Terriers as a 20-year-old from Eredivisie side Groningen on an undisclosed fee during the club’s time in the Premier League.

He’s gone on to make over 100 appearances for Town, scoring twelve goals and laying on nine assists.

If anyone knows Juninho Bacuna, it’s Huddersfield fans and it’s clear they’re certainly mixed when it comes to a midfielder with a lot of ability but a seemingly poor attitude at times:


These are interesting takes but if it’s the bigtime Bacuna wants, the limelight in Glasgow is amongst the most intense he’ll ever experience.

Rangers have a recent history of squeezing the best out of talented players and taking them to the next level, and Gers fans can be confident in this management team of getting the best of Bacuna.

Here’s more on what Alan Nixon had to say about the prospective transfer deal as Rangers look to bolster their squad this summer.
