There is absolutely no evidence Rangers are interested in Croatia’s Ivan Lepinjica any more (if they ever were) with the story originating in Croatian press on the 12th of June last year in a tiny little segment claiming Steven Gerrard wanted him on a loan to buy.
Since then, the story has spread wings with Clickbait Insider especially using it and claiming we’ve bid three times for the Rijeka man, but the only information we can find is the following:
That’s from June last year, and that’s from Croatian press, but there’s been nothing since bar Scottish press reports and of course protagonist Gerrard is gone.
The midfielder was asked today about his future:
In short, completely vague, but the one concrete confirmation is he wants what the original report did say – one of the big five leagues.
Which clearly rules Rangers out if his heart is set on Spain, France, Germany, England or Italy.
Not that we have an iota of evidence Gio is interested in this guy.
Not that he’s a bad player, actually seems half decent. But maybe our manager will gain an interest, who knows.
