Alleged Rangers target turns out for U23s

Rangers’ unofficial target Steven
Naismith has turned out for the Norwich U23’s. The striker has been linked all
summer window long and recent information alleged he had agreed terms in
principle with Rangers, with a personal commitment and desire to join, only for
the deal not, as yet, to be either confirmed or ratified on any official level.

But fans hoping that his
appearance for the youth team at his current employers against Burnley’s equivalent might suggest progress on that front
will be disappointed to know he likely only turned out for Matt Gill’s lads
because he is suspended for the senior side’s opening league fixture against
Fulham tomorrow.

There are also claims being made
by some that the deal to bring him to Ibrox is indeed on the table but manager
Pedro Caixinha is not convinced as yet that he is a player he wants or needs.
Either way, it does look like
Pedro’s final two captures could be two of Jamie Walker, Steven Naismith and
Kenny McLean.

  1. Kenny McLean may or may not be wanted by Pedro, I don't know. But I would be surprised if he is needed this season. We have more midfielders than we have jerseys. Not including the likes of Barjonas and Burt. I would suggest that someone call Kenny's agent and agree a meeting 6 months to the day before his contract expires.

    There is more need for Walker, but if Hearts don't want to accept a reasonable sum, make a similar phone call. Every season is important, but let's take the long term view and not waste money we may not have.

  2. Hope the camera just caught him at a bad moment, but this video at 1:16 worries me – youtube.com/watch?v=EUQBV9mCF8k

  3. Our U-19s came away with a very credible 2-2 with their counterparts from Southampton on Friday, so hats off to these lads for their work. Aidan Wilson captained and Serge Atakayi scored twice. One of the aims of this 'new games programme' is to entice more fans along to watch the academy in order to create an enviroment closer to that found in adult football. But I don't see anything on the Club website to encourage fans to participate. Not even a fixture list of youth games. I've been saying for a while that the Rangers media team is far from the standard required at a massive club like ours. These academy matches should also be televised on Rangers TV for fans living abroad. Other countries in Europe even show youth football on terrestrial tv, so surely the Rangers media team can manage to showcase our kids.

    • Excellent point about youth. And also excellent point about the quality in media – interviews with players etc at times are not very high quality if you know anything about media you'll get the point ! Worth looking into.
