St Mirren make move for Rangers striker


Rangers striker Calum Gallagher
is reportedly close to a shock switch to Friday’s opponents St Mirren.
The 21-year old said only last
week of his desire to remain and fight for his place, and how big this upcoming
year (the last on his deal) was for him to assert himself in the first team.
Critically he said he saw himself
at Ibrox, and playing a big role, and was only too keen to tell manager Mark
Warburton how well he felt he did out on loan at Cowdenbeath.

He said:
“This is a big year for me as it’s the last
year I’m contracted here at Rangers, so I’m going to do whatever it takes to
become a regular first-team player here.”
This move is sure to raise more
questions about the Scott Allan situation and reasons for Hibs’ rejection of
Rangers’ various offers, but nevertheless it appears Calum Gallagher is not
going to be part of Mark Warburton’s plans, unless this switch is a loan.

NB – this deal has been subsequently confirmed permanent as a one-year contract.



  1. So much for giving youth a chance, why couldn't we have given them Clark he has had his chances, very disappointing stuff.

  2. Aye good luck to the lad. I thought he looked quite good in his game at Dumbarton last year, but in warbs we trust.

    So, I expect stubbsy to be making a big song and dance about a title rival of Rangers making a bid for a young player the week we play them… No, don't think so either..

  3. he will probably get pumped by Ian murray about fitness levels and team tactics. but good luck to the boy.. I thought he done alright at rangers..he should have been used more last season.. the laddie just wants to play first team football…WATP.

  4. Wasn't going to be good enough to break into the team this season. Better to let the boy go and develop elsewhere. Good luck to him.

  5. I liked this kid and am sorry to see him go I did think he had a future at Ibrox but there y'go
    Mind you amazing that another team bidding for 1 of ours just before we play them on Friday Eh?
    Cant hear any whinging coming fae Embra way can you?
