Plenty of Glasgow Rangers fans have slammed The Scottish Sun over their reporting of a transfer story involving Florian Kamberi.
Edinburgh News reported that the Hibernian striker, who had a loan spell at Ibrox last season, is set to join St Gallen in Switzerland. The Scottish Sun also covered that particular transfer but stressed that the 25-year-old rejected a two-year deal from the ‘Gers before agreeing a move to St Gallen and wasn’t prepared to accept the terms being offered by the Glasgow outfit.
However, David Edgar of the Heart & Hand Podcast claimed via Twitter (@ibroxrocks) that he had spoken to the Ibrox club, who apparently informed him that Kamberi had never been offered a deal by the ‘Gers. He also insisted that, if the Light Blues had genuine interest in a permanent move for the striker, they would not have been so forthright in refuting it to the podcast host.
The 25-year-old played just nine games in a brief loan spell at Ibrox earlier this year, scoring once in that time before the move was cut short by the season’s premature end owing to the global pandemic.
Would you like to have had Florian Kamberi back at Ibrox?
These ‘Gers fans on Twitter believed the Heart & Hand’s version of events and slammed the reporting by The Scottish Sun:
I’d love to see the club come out with statements for each and every lie the media print or pundits spew. Fight fire with fire, even if the mhedia go on the attack against the statements to begin with (which they will). Win the war not just the battle.
