European giants planning double Rangers swoop? Reports…

Rangers may have to brace themselves for a dramatic double swoop by Italian giants Roma if recent speculation is anything to go by.

Already reeling from the pressure by the Italian cracks over rising star Josh McPake, news broke in the past 24 that they’ve also set their sights on the superb Kai Kennedy, whose performances in the Glasgow Cup in 2018 and Al Kass this year helped Rangers triumph in both, and the talented midfielder is one of the prides of the Youth Academy and one Rangers want to retain.

Like McPake, Kennedy is closing in on a break through to the senior team, and his displays for the youth sector are why Roma seek to secure him in their own.

Also like McPake Kennedy’s contract isn’t long term, with the former’s expiring next year and Kennedy’s in 2021, and Roma would consider it pocket change to splash out the kind of money these guys would ‘cost’ (youth signings are usually ‘free’ per se, with compensation costs usually the main factor but they can still cost a few quid).

But equally Rangers must retain their finest youth talent if the future is to remain bright, and having done brilliantly to nab Nathan Young-Coombes from Chelsea, Rangers’ Academy must clutch onto the likes of Kennedy and McPake, no matter Roma’s interest.

Another Billy Gilmour or Danny Wilson is not a positive.

  1. Good to see young talent coming through at last ,but sadly money talks these days in football and the offers young players and their family get makes it difficult for them to turn down. Hopefully the players and their families not their agents sit tight and let them develop at Rangers and if they make it to be stars can move on and give something back to the club that have made them in the first place.

  2. If Kennedy has a contract until 2021 ,Roma can`t sign him until then unless we agree to it .That means a fee that we can`t refuse not some wee development fee.We had this with McPake who is set to sign a new deal and Mebude who did sign a new deal, mhedia shit .Gilmour was different he hadn`t signed his first pro deal so there was nothing we could do , but we can and should tell Roma to gtf.

    • wlg, this is a very odd post. Senior transfers work the same way. A suitor can't buy one of our players unless we agree to sell them! Have you garbled your wording here?
