Rangers’ chances of signing Swansea forward Oliver McBurnie have received a huge boost with the cutting of his odds from at least two bookmakers to clear odds on.
The Scotland international has been closely linked with Rangers for some time now and provided a further boost himself to the club’s chances of getting him with a gushing tweet about Allan McGregor’s own move north from Hull, but the bookies have followed suit with some offering 1/2 while others are slightly longer at 10/11.
It makes for good reading for those fans who want to see the promising young attacker in the light blue next season, and he himself is on record as being very open to the idea, without being explicit:
“There has been a lot of clubs interested in the summer, I have only got a year left at Swansea. We will look at it, look at the options and what is best in terms of everything.”
Meanwhile the bookies’ representative George Elek said:
“McBurnie’s spell at Barnsley showed a player who was ready to make the step up to a big club and Rangers look to have got themselves a steal. As a Rangers fan and young talent, Gerrard could hardly have made a signing to endear himself more to the Ibrox faithful.”
This one could well be on but time will tell. As it always does.
