Flabbergasting reports this morning allude to Hibs’ reported interest in Rangers’ Greg Docherty, with the 22-year old currently tearing League One up at Shrewsbury.
The-now attacking midfielder has been a revelation down south with the Shrews, and is now surely ready to stake a claim for a first-team berth at Ibrox, but Paul Heckingbottom is rumoured to seek the powerhouse’s services either on loan or as a permanent deal.
But comically, after the Scott Allan and, to a lesser extent, Jason Cummings fiascos, it appears an absolute farce that Hibs would think Rangers would do them a favour.
And as an avid Rangers fan himself, Docherty will hardly be keen on going to Easter Road given the animosity between the clubs over the years and his certain awareness of that whole Allan farce, so we really can’t see why Hibs of all clubs think they can acquire such a prized asset.
Unless, that is, Steven Gerrard truly is washing his hands of Docherty and doesn’t have him in his future Rangers plans.
That would be a shame, a true shame. There have been some suggestions about Scott Arfield (more on that later) to justify Docherty, but for now, we can’t fathom any circumstances other than ludicrous money for Rangers to ever allow such a promising talent to enhance Hibs’ XI.
We sure as HELL can’t see why we would ever loan these people such a talented player.
Answers on a postcard.
