“I expect him…” – major Rangers target’s team mate speaks out

“I expect him…” – major Rangers target’s team mate speaks out
ZWOLLE, 26-02-2021, MAC3PARK Stadium, football, season 2020 / 2021, Eredivisie, SC Heerenveen player Joey Veerman during the match PEC Zwolle - SC Heerenveen PEC - Heerenveen PUBLICATIONxNOTxINxNED x10922458x Copyright:

Heerenveen captain Henk Veerman has confirmed Rangers are one of five clubs he expects Joey to join, among Atalanta, PSV, Ajax and AZ, with the Italian CL side and Rangers the front-runners given most observers anticipate him leaving the Netherlands.

Rangers have been linked to £6-£10M-rated Veerman for some time, and his captain and namesake expects him to head to pastures new outside of Holland.

He said:

“I’ve read things about Atalanta, Rangers, PSV, Ajax and AZ. I expect him to go to one of those clubs. I also think that Joey will add value for any club in the Netherlands.”

The final sentence is certainly true, Veerman would be a fine signing for any Eredivisie side indeed, but he has bigger ambition now albeit both PSV and Ajax are CL contenders next season, with PSV arriving in the tournament at the same stage as Steven Gerrard’s men. Ajax are already into the group stage.

As for Rangers’ chances? He’s spoiled for choice – Rangers, Atalanta, Ajax and PSV are all impressive places to go, and all offer the CL – but only two guarantee group placement.

That said, Rangers do have a strong chance on this one, and he’s a player we’d really want to get a hold of.

We’ll see how it fares over the next while.

  1. He’s a good player but unfortunately I think we could be priced out of the market here. I think he also may choose to play in a higher level of league.
