The transfer latest coming out of Ibrox proves that Rangers aren’t waiting around when it comes to their business this summer.
With Europa League qualifiers coming up in a month’s time, you can see why too. Steven Gerrard will want the core of his squad together as he heads into a crunch season.
A deal for the Liverpool youngster has reportedly been struck and he is said to be heading to Ibrox. The word is we’ll see him at training next Monday [Daily Record].
Just imagine he has a bigger impact than Ryan Kent…
Speak of the devil. Kenty is a name which every Rangers fan wants to see at Ibrox for another season. But with the likes of Aston Villa and Leeds United loitering, there’s nothing concrete.
That said, some reports are claiming the Bears are closing in [The Scottish Daily Mail (10/6, back page)].
Aribo is set to make his mind up on his future in the coming days [The Scottish Daily Mail (10/6, page 77)], with Rangers said to have held early talks with the player. Should the club sign the talented midfielder, it’d represent a real coup.
Plus, should reports be believed, we’ll have pipped Celtic to him as well.
This deal looked dead after reports Oldham had reportedly rejected the umpteenth bid from Rangers for the player.
But STV’s Raman Bhardwaj believes it’s very much still alive, and after the Oldham Chairman rubbished claims his club had accepted a bid, it’s very much one to watch.
He scored a rake of goals for Ayr in the Championship last season (34) and Ian McCall hinted either Rangers or Celtic had an offer on the table [BBC Scotland].
Portsmouth is reportedly the latest club to enter the race, but could Shankland’s bluenose have already sniffed out a move to Ibrox?
And the award for the most ridiculous link of the day goes to… Magennis might have stolen the show the last two Northern Ireland internationals, but it’d be very surprising if Rangers pounced.
Reports claimed Rangers are interested [Belfast Telegraph], but these were rubbished by the Daily Record later in the day.
£50k Glen Kamara has been stealing the show on international duty and his classy, composed midfield displays are reportedly interesting Brighton. We love him, he has a major role to play next year and we don’t want him to leave.
But should he, we can probably expect upwards of 200 times the amount we paid.
Our captain is both a potent provider and goalscorer. But more than that, the defensive side of his game has improved this campaign.
Physical, athletic and a major part of how we play, we simply can’t afford to lose him. Aston Villa are said to be sniffing around.
If you’d asked a Gers fan around January to May if they thought Morelos was leaving, almost all of them would’ve said yes.
Now, the transfer latest suggests there’s a chance we could get to see him at Ibrox next year. Major interest in Newcastle has cooled as they won’t be signing anyone whilst Benitez contract is up in the air [the Chronicle].
And Morelos wants a move to the Premier League [Daily Record].
Glenn Middleton & Jake Hastie
These come as a pair as, well, they’re part of the same report. The Scottish Sun is claiming the duo is set to be farmed out on-loan next season. And for Middleton in particular, it could be a superb move.
