If there’s one massive bonus to Rangers making the UEL final, regardless of how it panned out, it’s the difference it’s made to player values.

Up till full time at Leipzig, Rangers were not a Europa League finalist – and player values were solid but no more. We were looking at £15M for Morelos, maybe £10M for Kamara, £10M for Aribo et al.

Now, we’re aware contract length does play a big role in how much you can expect for an asset – you might have a ‘£35M player’ but if he’s in the final year of his deal, you’re very lucky to get half that.

But that notwithstanding, Rangers’ place in Seville is why Calvin Bassey will fetch, if sold, up to £35M because he not only stood out magnificently on that stage, but he was on that stage at all.

As they all were.

Rangers had a bunch of coveted players who made the final, and that in itself has hiked their values up significantly.

Sure, the Morelos and Hagis of this world were injured so didn’t feature, but we’re now a UEL finalist and that’s a lucrative boon to player value.

It’s not like we’re selling the team, far from it – but any players we do now sell, thanks to their making that occasion, will go for a bit more than they might have had they not got to the final.

Glen Kamara, for example, is out of contract in 3 years – he’s big value, and he’s one, if anyone makes a move, that will have a massive value now. As a UEL finalist, international, and at his age, he will set suitors back a lot. He also scored in that semi.

Making Seville changed the picture a lot for Rangers, and it really was a monumental achievement – and its implications are very, very far reaching indeed.

  1. Am sorry but I don’t believe what your writing. No Scottish based player is going to ho for £35m . You know that and so do I, so why write it?
    Bassey had a great season in the latter part of it, but he lost his man for the goal in the final. He’s not even played 100 games for us.
    The biggest transfer fee received by a Scottish club was for that ex manky mob player who went to arsenal for £25m & he had played 40 games in Europe and was an international when he went there.
    Your off your nut if you think bassey will go for more than that after 1 season in Scotland.
    I know you will point to Europe but as my work mate told me teirney was in the champions league team of the groups, so even will good performances in Europe they couldn’t get more than £30m for him

    • Tierney hadnt played in european final, he was playing in a Celtic team getting spanked in europe most weeks, tht were finishing bottom of there group. And did they even get passed the first round of any european knockout round ?? While Bassey’s in a team who are advanced euro knockout stage regulars. Thts why Basseys worth at least 20m
