It was with amusement that Ibrox Noise read a comment from one user recently arguing that this club ‘is linked with every c***’.
It was a complaint that every player, his son and his dog are linked with a move to Rangers, and we have to ask the chap in question, and anyone else who gripes about this: why?
It wasn’t that long ago Rangers were either banned from signing players completely, or signing utter mince like Ian Black and Nicky Law.
It wasn’t that long ago that the level of player coming in was barely League One, and was on a different planet to the typical quality of player Rangers enjoy.
Indeed, that transfer embargo, those horror years of signing Emilson Cribari – we’re quite happy if £10M Dutch midfielders are seriously in our sights, or valuable free agents, or whoever who plays for some top Belgian team.
In short, from where we were at a few years ago, we say bring on ALL the transfer gossip – let’s sign the Borna Barisics, Fashion Sakalas, the Bongani Zungus of this world – because even the South African would have looked like a world beater in 2012/2013 onwards when the quality of player we had was beyond pitiful.
Or we couldn’t sign any at all.
So we’re linked to every c***? Good. Let’s keep on hearing about the players we could sign.
Better than not hearing anything about players we can’t.
