Rangers could have to stump up more than £2million if they want to sign Motherwell star David Turnbull after the Fir Park side’s chief executive claimed it would take more than the club record £1.75million that was banked from selling Phil O’Donnell in 1994.
Turnbull was named Scottish Football Writers’ Association Young Player of the Year, while also picking up five awards Motherwell’s own awards after a phenomenal debut season in the first-team.
The teenager was one of ten players rumoured to be interesting Rangers by club insider Four Lads Had a Dream, and Burrows insists any fee for the 19-year-old will “set all sorts of records.”
“It would have to be more than that,” Burrows told BBC Scotland.
“If anyone is wanting to David Turnbull, the fee would have to be significant. Not only because of his talent, it’s to do with the contribution to the team.
“It would need to be a figure the club just couldn’t refuse, and that’s not going to be cheap. I would imagine it will set all sorts of records for this football club.”
Since bursting into the first-team, Turnbull has been integral to Stephen Robinson’s side, making 30 appearances for the Fir Park men and scoring and 13 times and contributing five assists.
Despite Rangers already having an abundance of options in wide positions, if they can get Turnbull for around £2million then it’s a no-brainer.
At only 19, there’s a lot of room for him to improve and become a fantastic player who could quite feasibly be a major name in Scottish football over the next 10-15 years.
With the Gers having thrown good money after bad in recent years signing guys like Carlos Pena, a move for Turnbull would be a shrewd bit of business.
