As Ibrox Noise brought you a month ago, Steven Gerrard has now belatedly confirmed his interest in Motherwell’s Jake Hastie.
We noted with interest his refusal to comment on the story, implying deeply strongly that he was indeed targetting the winger, and that has been borne out today as for the first time the Rangers boss admitted the story is out there and he wants to secure the attacker’s services.
“It’s no secret that there’s an interest there. But until we get it complete there’s nothing really to say on it but I’m not going to sit here and deny it because obviously it’s out there that there is interest.”
Gerrard’s style for transfer deals is pretty clear – we at Ibrox Noise have been focusing on transfers and player rumours for some time, and we’ve learned when stories are real and when they aren’t.
We will always endeavour to bring you the most interesting ones, but Gerrard’s tact for real stories compared with fictional ones is usually the biggest giveaway of all.
And before too long he’ll hope to get Hastie wrapped up.
