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?

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:

Rangers linked to Dutch international midfielder

Rangers have been linked with a move for free agent Vurnon Anita, according to reports. The 28 year old midfielder was freed by Newcastle this summer following Rafael Benitez’ side’s promotion back to the English Premiership, even though Anita played a significant role last season.

The Dutch international midfielder has a number of caps for his country, and can fill both defensive mid and fullback, which would certainly be a fine signing if manager Pedro Caixinha is indeed interested in his services.

What does the future hold for Joe Dodoo?

This summer already, Rangers manager Pedro Caixinha has signed two out-and-out strikers and two ‘second strikers’ in the shape of Alfredo Morelos, Eduardo Herrera, Dalcio, and Daniel Candeias.

In short, the forward line has been completely revamped, with Joe Garner confirmed as gone some time ago. And while Martyn Waghorn has been linked with both Scunthorpe and Leeds, and appears rather expendable, there remains the nagging question of what role Joe Dodoo has in the new campaign.

Pedro Caixinha thinks Rangers have solved a big problem with this signing

If there is one thing Rangers have missed in recent years, it has been the modern position of ‘box to box’ midfielder.

That is, a midfielder who can cover the grass from both boxes as effectively as each other, fulfilling attacking and defensive duties especially well, and particularly being able to nab a decent handful of goals or more from midfield.
