Rangers have this morning (again) been linked with Brighton’s Jamie Murphy, with reports Director of Football Mark Allen is set to green light a near £1.5M bid for the ex-Motherwell winger.
The 28 year old has been on Rangers’ radar for some time, with the attacker having a troubled time in the EPL having struggled to make too many appearances for Brighton in the English top flight, but the pursuit of his services this time around may put paid to the notion of the arrival at Ibrox of Hearts’ Jamie Walker once and for all.
Rangers certainly lack extensive quality on the wings, with only Daniel Candeias doing anything like a half decent job out there. Declan John is only a loan, albeit has been much better than expectations, and Josh Windass continues to be inconsistent.
Therefore a permanent signature like Murphy would be pretty welcome, albeit the ex-Sheffield man decided against coming back north some time ago, but back then England was still a fresh challenge to him.
He would be a decent addition, and as a Scotland international, comes with experience and quality above and beyond what Rangers probably have.
