Major Rangers target formally rejects Ibrox switch…


Rangers can officially move on from any interest in Crystal Palace’s James McArthur after the supposed boyhood Rangers fan confirmed he wants to finish his career at Selhurst Park and has no interest in a switch anywhere.

The 30-year old defensive midfielder has been on Rangers’ radar for some time, and a number of weeks ago was said to be a very close thing with reported claims he was as close as Scott Arfield to signing up, but it appears that was wide of the mark and now the Scotland international has pledged his allegiance to Palace.

He said:

“I’m not bothered [about the speculation], I’m a Palace player, I love it here. I want to stay here. I’d love to finish my career here. I love it.”

That’s about as clear as it gets, and it certainly explains why Rangers have since moved onto other targets.

The ex-Hamilton man would have cost a few quid, supposedly being in contract for another two years according to himself, even if all information contradicts this – nevertheless, he is now a busted flush and Rangers have other players in mind.


  1. Honestly never wanted him… we need dynamic forward thinking players in that area of the team.

  2. Said previously I dreaded his name on the Scotland teamsheet never mind us if we want to progress
    He:- Shite then
    Shite now
    Shite forever


  3. Not Even Bothered! 👎
    He aint anything special
    Never Wanted Him Anyway

    He can fkn stay at Palace who are never gonna go anywhere or win anything

  4. I only want players who actually want to be RANGERS players , so if this boy has said he wants to finish his career at palace good luck to him , but the people in charge of recruiting at ibrox should take note of this when palace are relegated and he does not want to be in the second tier in England

  5. Why do people change their view on people because they are happy where they are? Many people on this board wanted him at Rangers.

    Being realistic he was too expensive for Rangers so was never likely to have turned up at Ibrox anyway.
