Rangers could be in line for a stunning player 'swap' and profit deal


Following reports that Pedro Caixinha flop Carlos Pena is a target for a handful of Mediterranean clubs, Steven Davis could be an instant replacement for the potentially outgoing Mexican with Rangers endeavouring to recoup as much of the £3.2M fee as possible, while getting a superior and free replacement in the NI international.

Latest claims are that the former Fulham man will take an incredible 80% wage cut and go from £60K to just £12K, and if that is true, it’s an astonishing drop in salary and we have to commend him for it, along with Southampton for letting him go for free.

Meanwhile getting Pena off the books now appears to be a priority, with a clutch of Turkish sides said to be looking at him, and if Rangers can get Steven Davis for free and at £12K pw while selling Pena for even half what they paid, getting his reported £20K pw wages off the bill, it will be regarded as about as good as it gets really.

What a swap that would be!

  1. If we get over £2mill for Pena IL be Happy 👍🏻

    But If I'm being Totally Honest I would like to see Pena given another chance to see if Stevie G can do for Pena, What he's already done for Jack, Morelos etc

    As for Steven Davis,
    It's a Big No from Me
    His Time has Come and Gone
    We need to look Forward not Back

    Id Rather McCrorie/Docherty and Barjonas got Games.
    Id Rather sign Lewis Ferguson
    Id Rather Re-Sign Lewis McLeod

    1. I'd second the signing of Lewis Ferguson I'm just not sure Aberdeen would like to do business with us.

    2. Why sign Lewis Ferguson after we paid for Docherty? Both would not fit at rangers, and the we currently have too many centre mids who play too similar. Davis has class and will bring the ball forward and be the player for us Dorrans promised to be.

      As for Pena...did you not see him play? On paper you argue he's a goal scorer but let's be honest, he is a passenger in every single game. Take what we can for him, just get his wages off the books

    3. Because Docherty is a Midfield General an old Fashioned CM
      ...And Ferguson is a No.10

    4. Stevo, you might be happy with £2m for Pena. I'd be absolutely astonished!

  2. Get him sold and put to bed, that whole sorry time.
