Frank McAvennie has been left blown away by some Glasgow Rangers transfer news that he has now heard from Ibrox involving Alex Lowry.
The Lowdown: Premier League interest
It has been reported that both Newcastle United and Manchester City are now interested in signing Lowry in the summer, after holding talks with his camp.
The Latest: McAvennie reacts
“It’s hard to turn down but he won’t be getting game time down there either.
“If you’re not getting in the Rangers team, you won’t be getting in either of their teams.
“He should be going somewhere where he can play every week, 100%.
“They could arrange to loan him back to Rangers. But he needs to impress between now and the end of the season if he’s going to get into that team, because he’s nowhere near it.
“If Man City and Newcastle are interested, then wow – he’s gonna get a bit of money there.
“But he needs to go somewhere where he can realise that potential, and I don’t think it’s going to be at either of those clubs.”
The Verdict: Keep
Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s team really need to be keeping hold of Lowry if they can, despite what could be tempting financial packages from the mega-rich Premier League clubs.
Should Rangers give Lowry more chances?
Nonetheless, with uncertainty over the futures of the likes of Alfredo Morelos and Ryan Kent, there could already be a pathway paved for Lowry to get more minutes in the first team, which will only help his development as he looks to make a mark on Scottish football.
