Glasgow Rangers managing director Stewart Robertson has revealed that the Ibrox outfit will need to sell a couple of players over the next 12 months.
Robertson reveals transfer plans
The Gers recently revealed that they made a £15.9m loss over the last year, and that they have a £23m hole to fill in before the end of next season.
As a result, Robertson has revealed the need to move on two players soon. He said at the club’s Annual General Meeting on Tuesday:
“We have to really focus on that over the next 12 months,”
“We know for the business model of the club we need to start moving one or two players a year.
“It won’t be a big turnover in the squad but that is something we need to do and something we’re really focused on for the summer.”
While many Rangers supporters will be aware of the need to move players on – it is also an inevitability in Scotland, even for them and Celtic – it is not good news to hear it coming from a member of the club’s board. The 54-time Scottish champions have encountered plenty of financial problems over the past decade, even going into administration in 2012 – they will be eager to avoid a repeat situation.
Do these comments worry you?
The Gers do have a number of valuable players on their books. According to a recent article by The Athletic, Alfredo Morelos is valued at £13m, while Ryan Kent could even pull in £18m. Losing them, though, will not help on the pitch.
