With a trip to Poland on Rangers’ horizon, the work back home recruiting new talent nevertheless hasn’t ceased, and Ibrox Noise brings you all the latest news with potential incomings before the start of next month.
Don’t groan at the back. Yes, the Kent signing is back on. Again. The winger is deeply unhappy with events at Anfield, and despite Jurgen Klopp’s adamant assurance he wouldn’t be going back out on loan, the hypocrisy over Harry Wilson has been remarked on by many observers and the latest is he’s going to down tools Julien Faubert (remember him) style and sit on his deal on Merseyside. He wants Rangers and he and Stevie have 10 days to figure it out.
Word has sprung Rangers are once again interested in the Killie striker, who in fairness is a half decent wee forward who’s caused Steven Gerrard (and others) a few headaches. A Scotland cap, the 23-year old hitman has been mentioned in Rangers’ circles for a while now, but we can’t escape the nagging feeling he isn’t quite good enough overall to improve Steven Gerrard’s squad. Still, In Gerrard We Trust and all that.
The LB berth continues to be of considerable alarm, and the £1M LB is another Steve Clarke protégé who’s been capped at senior national level to be linked with the move to Rangers. A well-known Rangers fan, Taylor was, like his namesake Stewart, a youth product at Ibrox who didn’t make it, and he’d love to come home. Whether this one bears (see what we did there) fruit we’ll see. It would be a yes from us.
Those are the most notable ones for now, most of the vultures circling around our key assets have gone very quiet indeed with the closure of the English transfer window for Premier League and Championship sides.
Which can only be a good thing.
