Cast your mind back to the beginning of June and you might remember Jackie McNamara having a dig at Rangers’ finances [Football Insider].

The former Celtic right-back was out turning the screw as Rangers toiled to get the George Edmundson deal over the line.

With several bids reportedly rejected before the club signed the defender for a reported £700k, McNamara spoke out on Rangers’ “financial troubles”.

What must the outspoken former Celtic player be thinking now Rangers are reportedly going to spend up to €6m on Swedish international Filip Hederland?

The considerable outlay represents a real statement of intent from Rangers. Spending that much on an international footballer sends a message to the rest of the league.

The Ibrox club have had a very impressive transfer window and it appears there could be more still to come, both in and out of Ibrox.

Alfredo Morelos has been spotted flying to London amid reports linking him to Premier League outfit Crystal Palace.


There has been no official or reported suggestion he is in talks with anyone in London. It could be as simple as Morelos simply visiting the city.

Rangers have also been linked with Leeds United forward Kemar Roofe.

For a club that former-footballer-turned-financial-expert Jackie McNamara claims have a lot of financial troubles, Rangers do seem to be getting a lot of business done.

Shame the same can’t be said about Jackie’s old side…
