Rangers included in hunt for Montpellier winger


It is understood Rangers are
interested in Celtic target Anthony Mounier. The 27 year old left-winger
currently plies his trade for Ligue 1 cracks Montpellier,
who finished just outside the European places in France’s top flight.
Celtic manager Ronny Deila has
certainly stolen a march on Rangers by sending men out to scope the attacker
out, and if they present the Frenchman with a decent offer Rangers would have
to go some to attract him to Ibrox in a weaker league without any European football.

It is unclear whose interest in
the forward was first, but Celtic remain in pole position to secure his
signature in terms of competition between them and Rangers, and presumably the
Ibrox men would have to offer a better wage, something unlikely to occur.
It is also understood Mounier is
actively being placed on Montpellier’s
transfer list as confirmed by club president Louis Nicollin and that inquiries have been made by various clubs.
However, both Old Firm clubs face
further competition from Greek giants Olympiakos, who are ironically enough currently managed by another target of the Ibrox men, Vitor Pereira, and all three will hope no
English Premier League sides make a move as that is regarded as Mounier’s favoured

This is a signature Rangers are incredibly unlikely to secure, albeit the Pereira subplot makes the story that little more curious.


  1. Why do people keep saying we're after this player or that player? . We don't as yet have a manager , surely he should have first say in any transfers. At this time it is either speculation or the wishes of some fan who doesn't realise that we don't even know what budget a new manager will be offered .

  2. Agreed..and if the club isn't careful with expenditure, it' all be back in Administration again..

  3. It's not just a transfer budget for a new manager, running at a lost cannot continue, a sensible wage structure needs to be implemented. Too many mediocre players have been on inflated salaries.

  4. We need to spend to save, Let's not get hung up on past mistakes anyone in their right mind understands we require investment in the team. As for Ibrox as long as it's safe that does for me.

  5. Nonsence we want players from this league like keatings Carmichael who have gone to hibs to get out of this league ..not mercaneries like this guy …we have Boyd black sandaza Kyle etc etc etc over last 3 years . we need to get real and get promoted .. go and get Derek Lyle or osman sow ..people who know this division …. fans wake up we are a woeful team ….Get a man in and start afresh …deadwoid out now

  6. Check out these duds gers have signed under than joker mccoist before we sign anymore dross …..Manuel Ortiz Matt mckay …mervin selik, arygou emilson ,Kevin Kyle ..sandaza ,,moshni,,black ,,Smith ,simmonsen ,,,etc etc etc ..total and utter sewage ….shouldn't that put gers off …we are doomed going down this route

  7. Let's be honest we ain't going to buy a player for 2m this season were being used to publicise the player sale in the UK drum up some interest

  8. Dave Kings Skint, Rangers are Skint, Where's the Money Dave? How much you on a year Dave?

    Full of Crooks same as the last board.

    We missed our chance with Ashley, We don't NEED Rangers men in charge of the board, We NEED a businessman!!!
