Excitement is beginning to build around Rangers interest in Swansea City attacker Morgan Whittaker amid reports the Gers are set to return with a third bid for the player.

Ibrox supporters are expecting new faces in this week with reports gathering around ex-Plymouth Argyle loanee Morgan Whittaker, Norwich City midfielder Todd Cantwell and Belgian U21 star Nicolas Raskin.

But specifically relating to Morgan Whittaker, there has been something of a war of words between Ibrox manager Michael Beale and Swansea counterpart Russell Martin.

The attacker – who was recalled to Swansea after a successful loan stint with Plymouth Argyle in the first half half of the season – was left out of the Welsh side’s squad for their 1-1 Championship draw with QPR at the weekend.

Speaking after the game, ex-Ibrox defender Martin claimed this related to the player’s head not being in the right place whilst Michael Beale hit back with a thinly-veiled jibe relating to earlier comments about an unconfirmed Ibrox bid.

Those claims – of an original £900k offer – were refuted by Michael Beale and since then the likes of Fabrizio Romano have claimed that a £1.5m offer has also been rejected by Swansea.

Now, the Daily Record are claiming that Rangers are readying a third offer for the player and it’s clear excitement is building amongst the support.

Between highlights clips and feverish talk on social media, the potential addition of the 22-year-old English forward has fans excited regarding what Michael Beale sees in the player.

One of the most widely-regarded youth coaches in the British game, if Michael Beale sees a chance of progression there’s a good chance Morgan Whittaker is a good fit for Rangers and let’s see how the next few days pan out.

Meanwhile, one ousted Ibrox staffer has been leaping to the defence of Giovanni van Bronckhorst.
