Gerrard fails to reject interest in £15M man


Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has failed to douse stories he’s interested in Watford’s Andre Gray, which on top of the seemingly imminent capture of Rennes’ Mexer could be two serious statements of intent over Rangers’ prospects next season.

Naturally the big issue with Gray is the sheer logistics of a circa £70K pw striker and the budget Gerrard has, but his failure to outright reject the story was telling.

He said:

“Every time I pick a paper up we’re linked with three or four different people. There has been Andre Gray [...]."

Gerrard is getting cannier with his dealings with the press and how he handles himself and his and Rangers’ interests, and this quote deliberately did not outright reject Gray as a possible target, whereas in the past Stevie has frequently been very explicit in denying the stories that were fictional.

In this case, he’s distinctly failed to do so – which is surprising given the fact the player would cost an arm and a leg.

Gray would be quite a signing – one which appears financially outwith our means, but the manager’s lack of complete dismissal of the story could imply a touch of fire again under the smoke.

We’ll see.

  1. Gray is not out of our reach money wise we got Defoe and Davis and look at the cash they are on. I have every hope in this never say never.

  2. I think mexer is a good buy good in the air and comfortable with the ball at his feet I also think we should of put a offer in for keeper joe Lewis before he signed a new contract and bought young max Lowe

  6. Grays stats concern me for such a potential lavish outlay. 12 goals in 59 goals for Watford is hardly prolific. You need to go back to 2016 to his Championship days at Burnley to see a decent return of 23 in 41. Does he still have that in him?
