Rangers' massive £10M risk...


As Rangers fans are only too well aware, a number of Rangers’ key assets are vulnerable to sale.

Manager Steven Gerrard has already admitted every player has a price, and is for sale at the right one, and the player most key in our thinking here at the site with regards this is Scott Arfield.

We know this lad’s stock has skyrocketed since the season he’s had, and as a Canada international not to mention captain, Arfield is in the form of his life having regained his career after a bitty spell with Burnley.

In short, despite his age, Rangers could still easily command £10M for him, because he is just that important to us.

But is that worth the risk? Arfield has become an absolute fulcrum to Rangers – when he’s in the side, Rangers play. When he isn’t, the team is lost.

The difference the ex-Falkirk man makes is almost incalculable, and frankly he’s the real captain out there.

But could Rangers make better use of the £10M he’d potentially rake in?

There is talk that Greg Docherty could take that mantle, as he is now a goalscoring workhorse and a playmaker, having had a wonderful time at Shrewsbury, but he lacks the experience of Arfield and the leadership.

We know we sound like we’re ludicrously fawning over the 30-year old, but weren’t we all after he destroyed Scott Brown not once but twice?

This guy is such a colossal component to how Steven Gerrard’s Rangers want to play, that even £10M doesn’t seem adequate compensation to losing that influence.

But it is a real conundrum. Premier League sides in England are monitoring, this we know – Southampton are the most notable of course, and it is very realistic that a big big bid will come in for him.

But is it worth accepting and selling to rebuild the team? Or is Arfield that good and that important that he’s priceless to Rangers?

You tell us.
