Rangers sign Celtic player. Yes, really...


It is as rare as they come, but it is understood Rangers are to sign a Celtic player directly from the Parkhead Club for the first time since…ever?

Admittedly it is at the youth ranks, but nevertheless these are transactions rarer than diamonds, and in this instance it sees young goalkeeper Aidan McAdams switch from Parkhead to Ibrox at the U19s level, being 18 himself.

The formalities are yet to be completed, but it looks very much like McAdams, an international at various youth levels for Scotland, is set to join the ranks at Murray Park.

Reports claim the medical has already taken place, and personal terms have been agreed, and all that is left is the £150,000 signature for the Celtic man.

Quite a rare event this one and quite surreal to even be reporting it. Also the fact this is not a sub-15 year old youth player but instead a rather well developed and maturing near-20 year old makes the switch from Parkhead to Ibrox all the more significant.

  2. We are obviously being seen as a valid destination for substantial first team football experience in Scotland for young Scottish talent unlike other teams that see the purchasing of foreign youths with the intention of selling for profit.
    Everyone wants to see a successful first 11 made up of young Scottish talent. It is just something that takes time and patience to achieve....along with a few mistakes on the way. Beerman, Bates, Barjonas and Aiden Wilson should be an example to other youths that we are the club to develop them.

  3. I'm very surprised at this one and not because the boys moved from Celtic... We have an abundance of young GK's at Rangers unless McCrorie is getting punted out on loan for first Team experience.. Good signing all the same 👍

  4. Do you think that Leigh Griffiths will be next to sign? (Ha Ha).

    Celtic already have Craig Gordon as first choice + Dorus de Vries as 2nd choice + Italian goalkeeper Leonardo Fasan in 3rd place.

    When Rangers approached them, they obviously felt that they could do without him, especially if we have to give them £150,000 compensation for his services.

  5. Not sure why we need a Celtic bench warmer
