Ibrox Noise is breathing a huge sigh of relief after Greek outlet SDNA confirmed Rangers have pulled out of any interest in Aris striker Luis Palma after the Ibrox club slammed the Greek side for wanting too much for the 23-year-old Honduran striker.
The hitman, whose agent recent confirmed he wasn’t interested in Rangers particularly strongly and instead wanted the English Premier League as his priority, may have some good numbers and be an international, but sadly that attitude is pretty much the same as Alfredo Morelos who wanted the Premier League before he even signed.
Now, we’re not naïve, most players do indeed harbour ambitions of the best league in the world, and we’d be fools to criticise them for that – but openly announcing it before you actually join is not a good look and very unprofessional. It suggests that you’re far from focused on the job in hand and you’re just waiting for the next transfer window to give you what you want.
As for Palma:
Long story short, he’s too expensive for what we value him at.
So the story is done.
