Former Rangers forward sheds light on Celtic deal

It really isn’t often you’ll find anyone connected with Rangers praising anything related with bitter rivals Celtic, particularly when parked at the bar in the Transfer Tavern. 

The Gers are now in the top flight of the SPFL, though trail their bitter rivals by some distance, despite a busy summer of transfer activity under Mark Warburton.

Not all of his dealings have been widely praised at Ibrox, especially the Joey Barton fiasco that threatened to rock the early part of a campaign that started with oh so much optimism.

So, reports in the Sun revealing former striker Kris Boyd was PRAISING the transfer activity of the Hoops have only soured the mood amongst our Rangers supporting punters.

The now-Kilmarnock forward has been talking about the Bhoys’ likely move for Portland Timbers playmaker Darlington Nagbe, with the American international thought to be closing in on a move to Parkhead.

The 33-year-old played with the USA star during his time stateside with the Timbers back in 2012 and has heaped praise on the midfielder, who watched Celtic in Champions League action against Barcelona last night.

In fact, Boyd (who played for the Gers across two spells) has hinted he even tried to get his former charges to sign the player.

“Darlington is a top player — he’d be a great signing for Celtic if they could get him. I played with him for a season and, for me, he’s ideally suited to the British game”, said the former Scotland international.

“He’s a real athlete and has all the attributes needed for the top level.

“When I went back to Rangers I spoke to the coaching staff about him.”

Should Rangers have at least tried to sign him? Let us know below..
