Rival transfer talk proves Rangers must stop undervaluing Ibrox stars

If this transfer window teaches Rangers anything, it’s that it’s time the club stopped undervaluing our players.
Even if rivals fans or members of the Scottish press are determined to do so.
Somewhere between the £10m Aberdeen reportedly want for Scott McKenna and the reported £25m Celtic want for Kieran Tierney, Rangers have got to be rethinking how we do things.

It is plainly absurd that McKenna and Tierney would be valued so highly yet any talk of £10m+ for James Tavernier is scoffed at.
James Tavernier was arguably the most influential player in the country last season.

Some believe Alfredo Morelos isn’t worth the approx. £20m Rangers claim to want for him.

If the Colombian leaves for a cut-price fee, watch Rangers miss out when his next move is for twice the original asking price.
There was also mental talk of Scott Arfield – a Premier League quality player who is immensely influential on our team – moving to Crystal Palace or Southampton for a measly £3m [Scottish Sun].

That’s the same Scott Arfield who shone in Old Firm matches last season whilst the apparent £15m Tom Rogic could barely finish 70 minutes.
Those three Gers players, in particular, are worth their weight in gold to the Ibrox club and Rangers should settle for nothing less than it.
We need to start valuing our assets at a level which they deserve.

It’s a problem that we’ve been stung with in the past, particularly during the Caixinha era.
The likes of Barrie McKay and Martyn Waghorn moved on from Nottingham Forest and Ipswich Town for multi-million-pound deals.

Rangers paid a heavy price for undervaluing those players.
Let’s make sure we don’t with these ones.
