With Rangers keeping their cards close to their chest nowadays when it comes to transfer rumours, the only speculation we get is when agents or other teams drop our name in with the media.
Barry Fry revealed this week that we have been keeping tabs on Jonson Clarke-Harris and we now know that Ross Wilson is hoping to lure Manchester United starlet James Garner to Ibrox having tried, unsuccessfully in January, according to a report in The Scottish Sun.
His agent, Steven Beck, made the revelation in an interview with United fan media Stretty News and said when asked about Garner going out on loan again next season:
“Third loan? – I honestly don’t know.
“I had a couple of chats with John Murtough (Man Utd’s Football Director) last week, but I’m so relaxed on the situation, as is James because things are going so well for him.
“James has put himself in a great position where he’s probably going to have, if he does go out on loan again, the majority of the Championship and I would be amazed if one or two Premier League clubs don’t try and do something.
“I know Brighton like him, I know Norwich like him. I know Rangers are really keen on him as well.
“When the opportunity came for him to leave Watford, there was Nottingham Forest, Blackburn, Rangers and a few others clubs coming in for him at that point – James was reluctant to leave Watford, he wanted to stay and prove he was good enough.”
After the news that Ryan Jack is to see a specialist about his ongoing knee/calf issues, it’s no surprise that we are looking at reinforcements in midfield, Glen Kamara is also likely to attract interest in the summer too so the engine room becomes a priority area for Steven Gerrard.
Vital Rangers Player of the Year 2020/21
Garner is highly rated and has done well on his loan spells, that new United technical director , Darren Fletcher, has tipped him for the top could prove to be a hindrance in our attempts to get him, however, the £3.6million rated defensive midfielder has just a year on his contract to run at Old Trafford and at 20-years old, he is the textbook signing for our new transfer model – fingers crossed we can get a deal done.
