Rangers’ interest in Bologna’s Andrea Skov Olsen appears to be over after not only the winger’s stock rose with improved performances for his Italian employers recently, but the renaissance of Steven Gerrard’s own signing Jordan Jones who has appeared like a new signing.
The Danish star was subject to intense speculation about a move away from Serie A, with Rangers heavily linked, albeit a lack of certainty about whether the move was to be a loan or permanent, but with his getting more minutes in the senior side and becoming a mainstay now of the XI, his price will have risen significantly following a goal v Parma last night, his second in Serie A.
Plus the Jordan Jones factor is now hugely relevant and may have found Rangers a ready-made option for the right wing, albeit Jones is naturally left-footed.
It all adds up to a player almost certain not to arrive, and the potential of Jones’ return to save Rangers a hell of a lot of money in the transfer market.
More as we get it.
