Rangers: Gers miss out on Rafael Santos Borre

Rangers: Gers miss out on Rafael Santos Borre - Rangers News

Glasgow Rangers have missed out on the signing of Rafael Santos Borre, who has completed a transfer to Eintracht Frankfurt instead.

The Lowdown: Gers eye Santos Borre

The contract of Colombia international Santos Borre ran out at River Plate recently, leaving him available on a free transfer.

Only the biggest Gers fan will get 10/10 on our 2020/21 quiz... Who played the most minutes for Rangers in all competitions?

The Gers were linked with a move for the 25-year-old as they attempted to boost their attacking options (El Deportivo).

The Latest: Frankfurt win the race

However, it has now been confirmed the Gers have missed out – the striker has instead moved to Frankfurt, who qualified for the Europa League last term.

He has replaced Andre Silva, who recently made the move to RB Leipzig.

The Verdict: Pipe dream

While the Gers will have hoped they could convince Santos Borre to join them, and may have hoped the potential promise of Champions League would be a big-enough carrot, it always felt improbable that they would capture the Colombia international.

Would you liked to have signed Santos Borre?

Yes

No

No

In 149 games for Argentinian giants River Plate, he managed 56 goals (he has 74 strikes throughout his career), and even helped them win the Copa Libertadores in 2018 (Transfermarkt).

With four caps for Colombia you get the feeling that number will only increase in the coming years. There is nothing wrong in aiming big, but this one always felt unlikely for Ross Wilson and co.
