Now, we’re not saying Maccabi Tel Aviv’s Dan Glazer is a bad player, far from it. But isn’t it a bit suspicious that he’s being linked to Rangers on the eve of Scotland’s crucial Nation’s League clash with his national team?

Not only do Rangers not need a new defensive midfielder (unless Glen Kamara gets old, Steven Davis retires and Ryan ‘Jacks’ it in), but it wouldn’t be the first time the press has used Rangers to benefit something other than Rangers.

Indeed, a spokesman for the club has already confirmed the story is a load of b*******, frankly, but what better way to try to unsettle an opponent in an international match than by using one of the world’s biggest clubs to make up a story about him.

Glazer has spent his entire career in Israel, he’d absolutely bite your arm off for a move to Govan and to one of the world’s biggest clubs, but the story is a pile of garbage to turn his head, unfocus him and disrupt Israel.

It’s purely to unsettle an opponent who will almost certainly start at Hampden tomorrow.

I mean, it’s not like Celtic’s good name would be used in this trashy way, of course, because Uncle Peter likes his control over the press, but Rangers?

Sure! Why not!

No, the story is a fabrication, and serves only to try to give Scotland an advantage over Israel.

What a sham.
