Rangers completed the double Bosman signings of Jordan Jones and Glen Kamara last week – and the outrage it has provoked from opposition fans is ridiculous.
The club confirmed the duo would link up with Steven Gerrard’s squad at the end of the season.
Once the news was confirmed fans of Kilmarnock and Dundee were immediately going crazy.
It reached a peak on Wednesday when Killie Trust director Barry Richmond told TalkSport Radio that the Jones shouldn’t play for the club again.
Apparently the winger has disrespected the club by posting a message on social media saying he was delighted.
Dundee meanwhile have called Kamara back from international duty in Sweden.
Kamara was due to face Sweden in Qatar but is now heading back to Scotland.
Manager Jim McIntyre told the Scottish Sun that his side would like to move Kamara on immediately, questioning the player’s mentality after agreeing a pre-contract.
There’s nothing that suggest either will give less than 100% before moving and the reaction to it is bizarre.
Quite why these two signings are a problem doesn’t really make much sense.
Kamara and Jones are talented players who can still be of use to their current clubs this season.
Rangers probably face a bigger risk if they stay where they are – one serious injury and Rangers sign a crock.
Fans of both clubs will admit they are losing two quality players – and keeping Kamara and Jones with them a few more months would do more good than bad.
