Manic Monday at Ibrox - roundup

 Article by: Ibrox Noise

This one will probably go down as Manic Monday. In terms of activity at Ibrox, Monday the 26th of June has seen an unprecedented amount of news come out of the club in terms of one day and player changes.

Let us try to summarise the main talking points in one easy-to-digest chunk!

Imminent seven player Ibrox exodus on cards

Rangers are set to shift seven players with the breaking news that six have been excluded from the Europa League squad while a seventh is a definite target for Mark Warburton’s Nottingham.

Joe Dodoo, Michael O’Halloran, Andy Halliday, Rob Kiernan, Harry Forrester and Matt Crooks have all been excluded from the squad to face Progres Niederkorn, while James Tavernier has confirmed he is considering a move to Nottingham Forest after an initial bid from manager Mark Warburton was rejected. He is expected to increase his submission to a seven-figure sum this week.

Halliday to switch Ibrox for SPL rivals?

On top of this morning’s chaotic breaking news at Ibrox with all the apparent changes coming our way is that as well as his omission from the Europa League squad, Andy Halliday is set to switch Rangers for Dundee after manager Pedro Caixinha reportedly confirmed the midfielder is not part of his plans going forward.

It has been a fairytale for Halliday, who got to live the dream, and now it seems his time is at an end at Ibrox with Dundee probably the perfect place for him to go, with a manager in Neil McCann who understands Rangers like the back of his hand and will welcome an experienced campaigner like Halliday with open arms.

Aberdeen: "We won't sell Kenny"

Reports have broken tonight that Aberdeen have given manager Derek McInnes assurances that Rangers target Kenny McLean will not be sold this window.

The Aberdeen boss has already lost star captain Ryan Jack to Pedro Caixinha, and following the Graham Dorrans saga Rangers made a move for Aberdeen’s creative midfield star, but the Dons rejected Rangers’ initial reported £500K bid for his services.

Transfer window: should Rangers fans be worried about this?

 Article by: Ibrox Noise

As we have said time and time again, we are truly impressed with how efficient and quick Rangers have been in this summer’s transfer window. Eight players in and possibly more to come is a very decent return so early in the window, and suggests Rangers will have a very different look come the new season.

However, despite all the euphoria and joy over all the inbounds, and the optimism caused by events off the pitch, there is a nagging worry just beginning to plant a seed of doubt.

3 Scots, 3 bids, 3 signings?

This transfer window has been home of a very strange dichotomy as far as Rangers are concerned. On the one hand, we have seen eight players sweep through the front door with near clinical efficiency and with only 24 days on the transfer clock. On the other, there have been two increasingly long-running sagas while another one appears to have joined them in the past 24 hours.

As all fans will know, Rangers are involved in arduous negotiations over Norwich City’s Graham Dorrans. The bid made by the Ibrox men has been regarded as insufficient for the Canaries to accept, with reports Rangers’ submitted fee has topped out at £1.2M while the Championship side want well over two times that.

Few Bears can remember a transfer window this efficient. We have witnessed eventful windows in the past, such as ‘99s glut of incoming under new manager Dick Advocaat, and 2012’s certainly saw a lot of activity, if not ‘good’ activity, as did last summer, but there has been something clinical about how eight players have been signed up over the course of barely three weeks.

With that all said, Ibrox Noise takes you all through the latest rumours, incoming, outgoing and general gossip about the personnel side of the club as it stands:
