In a hectic last few hours of Deadline Day, a number of deals have been ratified or come close to it, and Ibrox Noise now has a look at what the latest is.
In a piece of joyous news, the criminally abysmal Brandon Barker has gone to Oxford on loan. A complete mental failure, he might have been half-decent in training, but if any senior player the past two years has psychologically capitulated as badly on match day as Barker, we’d love to know who it was. He had one or two half decent matches yes, but overall a completely catastrophic signing and while it was a plan B in the event of Ryan Kent no arriving, it was completely misguided. We called it out as a bad signing when it happened, and sadly we’ve been proven more true than we’d have wanted.
Scott Wright has been secured for £200K. The Aberdeen attacker will arrive in time for the visit of St Johnstone on Wednesday, after a deal was finally struck between Rangers and the Dons. It has no bearing on the Ross McCrorie situation.
Nnamdi Ofoborh ended up at Wycombe after all. With all due respect, a player who isn’t good enough for Championship Bournemouth and can only get a loan to doomed Wycombe isn’t good enough for us. He’s not signed a pre-contract with Rangers btw, it’s just speculation. It’s being assumed he’ll join Rangers as a free agent in the summer but we hope not.
Jack Simpson has signed a four and a half year deal and like Scott Wright joins immediately. The fee is undisclosed but he’s another who will be available for Wednesday.
It’s all kicking off!
