As with Joey Veerman, it is looking increasingly like Rangers about to miss out on a well publicised transfer target.
Over the weekend, Andreas Skov Olsen had reportedly been in talks over a three year deal to join Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s revolution but it would appear that we weren’t the only club interested in signing the Denmark international.

Club Brugge are said to be one step closer than the Light Blues with a €6million fee (£5m) the 22-year old’s price tag.

This should be well within our price range, especially for a player who would be a virtually guaranteed starter, it’s a move that makes a lot of sense in more ways than one.
Olsen is an established international, has experienice in one of the toughest leagues in world football, has been a target for a few years and still has plenty of time on his hands to develop and become and even better player – the fee is the going rate for someone who would improve our squad who isn’t available on a Bosman.
If we are serious about continuing to strengthen, some of the money that we brought in from the sale of Nathan Patterson has to be used, we’ve signed James Sands and John Souttar but neither will have cost us any real money upfront, standing still simply isn’t an option.
Of course, it may be that we aren’t even interested in Olsen but we have been linked with him in almost every transfer window for the last few seasons – this could be the last chance to acquire him before he becomes too expensive.
