Celtic have had a bid for Motherwell midfielder David Turnbull accepted as the youngster now goes on to discuss personal terms with our Old Firm rivals.
It’s brought a mixed response from many Rangers fans. Some believe that we’re missing out on one of Scotland’s top talents.
Others believe that the reported £3m fee is simply too much. And it looks like Rangers agree with them.
Rangers have a considerable job in the transfer market yet and swallowing a significant part of our budget on a 19-year-old is wholly irresponsible.
For Rangers, the focus must be squarely on Rangers. Not just in the long-term but also the short. Yes, the club forked out the better part of £4m for Carlos Pena and Eduardo Herrera, but these are lessons. Mistakes not to be repeated.
You get the impression that from the very start, Rangers believed there were better options in the market. Not solely on talent, but also on price.
Whilst the Motherwell youngster is undoubtedly a real talent, the likes of Joe Aribo, in the short term at least, offer more maturity and much better value for money.
Which begs the question, at that price were Rangers ever seriously interested in the player at all?
