Once again a Celtic person is obsessed with talking about our club, following Kenny Dalglish on Ally McCoist’s comments. Yes, this time it’s Charlie Nicholas, who informs the world Rangers will sign a new goalie if we get to the UCL group stage and ‘boost our finances’.

Because, as we all know, we haven’t already done that…

In case Mr Nicholas is unaware, Rangers have already pocketed around £90M from player sales and the Europa League, not to mention a further £5M from getting to the UCL playoffs.

In other words, our finances are pretty dandy again, thanks, so if we were to sign anyone further, it wouldn’t be dependent on the UCL.

Don’t get us wrong, it can’t hurt to get an extra circa £60M for sure, and yes, it’s likely that Rangers might try for another signing or two should we get to the group phase, but it would be a luxury at that point, not a critical necessity.

Gio has already confirmed he’s pretty content with the squad at present – but every club is always looking to strengthen where it can or risk stalling. And Rangers are no different.

Yes, it’s possible that we’d look at the transfer market if we get another £60M by making the UCL group phase, but if this club really wants a goalie, there’s nothing stopping it signing one now.

We have money.

Do we need a new goalie? Most fans, ourselves included, aren’t exactly blown away with Jon McLaughlin, nor do we endorse McGregor being reinstated for every match. So we’d hardly complain with a new stopper, but then we have four on our books so it would require one or more to leave.

It is a bit messy.

But no, Charles – we don’t NEED UCL to sign a goalie. But thank you for your views on our club!
