Greg Docherty is reportedly on the verge of joining Hull City from Glasgow Rangers.
Steven Gerrard has already confirmed that the player is in talks with the Tigers and it is now up to the 23-year-old himself to decide whether he wants to make the move to the English League One outfit. Signed from Hamilton in 2018 for the fee of £671,000, he managed just 19 appearances at Ibrox, with him now set to be sold for just £400,000.
Docherty managed six assists during his 19 games for the 54-time Scottish champions – far from a poor return – and he did well with both Shrewsbury and Hibernian on loan, managing 13 strikes and 16 assists in 58 matches during those two spells. Therefore, the apparent £400,000 fee seems quite low.
Do you agree with Greg Docherty being loaned or sold?
Many ‘Gers supporters are far from happy with the reported fee – one even called it “ridiculously bad” – and they have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts. You can see some of the best comments from the social media platform below:

400k for Docherty is scandalous man!

What a waste of a young talent. Never got a chance for Rangers and I reckon he will absolutely be a play who we look at in 2/3 years time and regret this decision. https://t.co/zQP7gQGZUW

Was never given a chance and can’t understand why. gutted to see him go. ☹️
He’s worth much more, sold to cheaply! Rangers always seem to almost give players away, where as the other mob always seem to get way above their players valuations.

If that fee is true it’s ridiculously bad for Rangers. Bought him for 600k loaned him out twice to give him experience and nurtured him by having him beside the likes of Davis. He’ll be two or three times the player he was when he arrived but he’s leaving for a lower fee?
