Rangers’ interest in Jamaica cap Daniel Johnson appears to be finished after Preston manager Alex Neil confirmed the midfielder seems to want to stay and will likely sign a new deal.

The Rangers ‘interest’ appears, in truth, to have been completely agent-based in order to get a stronger deal at Deepdale, and to that end it has worked, as Neil has confirmed a new contract will be offered to Johnson’s requirements.

It simply looks, once again, like a player and an agent threw Rangers’ name in there in order to secure a better deal at their existing club, and it’s certainly not the first time we’ve been used in this way.

Would Johnson be a decent signing? In truth he doesn’t seem significantly better than anything we currently have, and it’s not exactly missing out on Ronaldo.

But we’re going to see a lot of these stories linking us with average players just because that player and especially their agent want a big pay day at their present club.

Indeed, we’ll look more into this later today but Johnson is another who appears to have been a red herring.

Que sera!
