Though things aren’t perfect, the Rangers fans here in the Transfer Tavern have largely been delighted with the complexion of their current side. Indeed, after a busy January window, the punters propping up our bar think Graeme Murty has a much better squad at his disposal.
While director of football Mark Allen hasn’t always convinced in his role after the hilariously bad Derek McIness saga, our local Light Blues have been impressed with many of his January signings, restoring confidence in him ahead of the summer window.
With that in mind, they are hoping he can once again come up with the goods and ensure Sean Goss joins the club permanently. The midfielder has proven a revelation since signing on loan from QPR during the New Year sales though the notion of seeing him depart in just a few months is a scary one for the Ibrox faithful.
A former Manchester United youngster, perhaps it should come as no surprise. The 22-year-old obviously has talent, though it’s his determination and drive from midfield, as well as goal threat, that make him such a popular figure on the blue side of Glasgow.
QPR are understood to want him back this summer but Allen simply must do all he can to prevent that from happening. Rated at just £450k by Transfermarkt, Goss should be the transfer priority for Rangers over the course of the summer months, however much is parent club might want him to return.
Mark Allen has gone some way into restoring his reputation of late and a permanent deal for Goss would only strengthening his position atop the marble staircase at Ibrox.
