Rangers ‘defender’ Ben Davies is discussing a move back to ex-club Preston North-End after Michael Beale confirmed he will not be in the squad for Kilmarnock.

The former Liverpool dud, a £4M shocker of a signing from a laughing Jurgen Klopp, has been bleeding Rangers dry to the tune of £30,000 a week since signing on the dotted line last summer, costing the club well over £1.5M in outgoings and being one of the highest-paid earners, but Beale’s concession about this weekend corroborates Ibrox Noise sources confirming he’s speaking to other clubs in lieu of a sale.

It is unclear yet what the terms would be, Davies is aware his wage is unwanted at Rangers and he’s not offered value for money (thanks Ross) so he’s working on a move to a Championship side of the ilk of Preston who know him well, of course.

Whether terms can be agreed between he and his potential new club is another matter, but Rangers are prepared to take a modest hit on the outlay because Davies is barely worth £400,000 never mind the ridiculous £4M Rangers originally paid.

How Liverpool pulled that one off we’ll never know but they did, and now Rangers are working on how to shift Davies off the wage bill. As for his replacement?

More on that later.
