Glasgow Rangers could now lose Josh McPake in the summer, as per a source from Ibrox.
The Lowdown: Wasted talent?
McPake is a player that has been ‘very highly’ thought of at Ibrox, according to former Morecambe manager Stephen Robinson, who called him a ‘really exciting’ signing back in July when they signed him on loan.
However, that was his fourth loan spell away from the club, and he has only ever managed to make one senior appearance for the Teddy Bears, throwing his long-term future under Giovanni van Bronckhorst into serious doubt.
The Latest: Raith interest
As per Football Insider, Raith Rovers are now plotting to sign McPake in the summer, and an Ibrox source has revealed that he could be made available on a free transfer.
Should McPake leave Rangers?
The winger is under contract until 2024, but a financial agreement could be made that would allow him to leave for free.
The Verdict: Get rid
Given the plethora of attacking options available to van Bronckhorst, and his lack of first-team football, it is clear that now is the best time for both McPake and the club to part ways.
It is a shame for things to end this way, given that he came up through the youth ranks at the Light Blues, but there is simply no point of him staying if he wants to play regular first-team football.
Nonetheless, McPake is 20 years of age now, and so needs to move permanently for the sake of his career.
