The last time we discussed Kenny McLean, the overwhelming response from the good readers of Ibrox Noise was an absolute, unequivocal, categorical ‘no’.

In fact, rarely have we seen a less popular transfer link than the ex-Aberdeen man, despite the lad being a Scotland international, an experienced PL player and a Bluenose.

And now the Norwich and once-again PL midfielder is in the news as wanting to get his move to Rangers at long last.

But, let’s make it clear – his priority now is the PL with the Canaries, and the guy only talks about a move to Govan at some point in the future.

He’s 29, and a decent player, even if the majority of our readers might disagree, but we’re wary about a player who doesn’t prioritise Rangers.

He’s honest:

“Right now, I’m about to play in the Premier League again, so I’m not thinking about it! But for me and my family, it would be pretty special. I grew up a Rangers fan, used to go to the games with my dad and as a kid in Glasgow, you support Rangers or Celtic and you want to play for one of them. So, I was on the better side.”

He’s one of us, but he’s playing at the Promised Land and we’d imagine he’ll be happy to stay there till no club at that level wants him any more.

Clearly he wants to tick Rangers off his bucket list, but we’re not a priority.

We can’t exactly blame him – the SPL is hardly a lucrative league, but we attracted John Lundstram and he is frankly a better player than McLean.

He has 2 years left on his contract, and naturally he’s going to big up his present league and circumstances, because to do otherwise would be a bit unprofessional.

But is he a player we want?

There are better out there, there are worse, but best we know Steven Gerrard has never had any great interest in McLean.

Maybe one day…
