Another Portuguese winger: Rangers' latest transfer rumour mill...

Article by: Ibrox Noise

Without any doubt the transfer window has been much quieter of late at Ibrox. While activity is far from dead, the information leaks there once were appear to have been plugged and speculation has reduced a fair amount. One wonder if there is any coincidence here with the departure of a certain hair-gel obsessed attacker.

Who knows, we could not possibly comment, but either way, it is time for the latest round up of everything we know about potential incomings and outgoings in Govan this summer.

Trail goes cold on Rangers target while League 1 interest gets set to leave

Article by: Ibrox Noise

It has emerged in the past 24 hours that while Northampton Town’s bid for midfielder Matt Crooks has been reportedly accepted, any lingering hopes of securing Hearts wingers Jamie Walker have been reduced to nearly nil.

The midfield enforcer signed from Accrington along with fellow Warburton recruit Josh Windass simply never got anything like a chance at Ibrox, for whatever reason, and was farmed out on loan to Scunthorpe as soon as possible.

Part Two: Attacking the midfield - who gets the call?

 Article by: Ibrox Noise

Following on from yesterday’s analysis of the striking department at Ibrox, in the second part of our four-part series, we will today look at Rangers’ attacking midfield and the options it presents now for Pedro Caixinha going forward.

Obviously we cannot know for sure that the summer’s transfer window work is complete, with many many weeks still to go before the window closes, but nevertheless the sense is that the main core of work is now done, so Ibrox Noise takes you through the options we now have in the creativity department.

Part One: Striking a balance - Rangers' options

Article by: Ibrox Noise

With nearly 10 signings in the bag, Rangers have effectively acquired a new team this summer. The likes of Dorrans, Pena and Alves have come through the metaphorical entrance at Ibrox while a handful plus have gone out in the other direction, but we still do not really know what shape the team will take next season.

In later episodes in this series we shall look at defence, defensive midfield and attacking midfield, but for now we will start at the front. You could argue we are going the wrong way around but we like to be a bit different here at Ibrox Noise!

Rangers linked with second bid for West Ham midfielder

 Article by: Ibrox Noise

Rangers have been linked with returning for a second bite at the cherry over the past 24 hours. In a story that has resurfaced from January’s failed bid, Pedro Caixinha has been loosely mooted with trying again where predecessor Mark Warburton failed and signing Portugal’s Domingos Quina, a 17 year old attacking midfielder the Bread Man was unable to bring in during the winter transfer window.

Naturally the Portuguese connection is significantly driving this one, with West Ham arguably more receptive to loaning the kid out to a countryman, but if this was a player Warburton was after, does that not already pour cold water over it looking at his record?

Are Rangers interested in EPL attacking midfielder?

 Article by: Ibrox Noise

Rangers have recently been linked with Manchester United’s Matthew Willock, with the 20-year old attacking midfielder being mentioned in an ESPN report claiming Rangers are interested in his services.

But this one seems a bit left field considering the market Pedro Caixinha has been working in – with nothing but Hispanic overseas players and home-grown Scottish recruits thus far on the agenda, Willock would be very ‘Warburton-esque’ a target with very little obvious motivation for Rangers to acquire him.

Should Rangers fans boycott SPL away matches?

Ibrox Noise’s remit has always been to support our club, defend it from our enemies, and hold those in charge at Ibrox to account for their actions. We do these in different ways, sometimes in ways sometimes misunderstood, but never mistake any of our articles, comments, or polls as being for being in the wrong intentions.

Us fans may disagree a lot about the right way forward for our club, or the right manager, or the right this or that, but we are all united by wanting whatever is in Rangers’ best interests. Sometimes that is quite well hidden with petty squabbles between us quite a regular occurrence, and frequent accusations against those who disagree with our views that they are either not a Rangers fan or a plain undercover tim.
