Though things are going right on the pitch right now, the Rangers fans here in the Transfer Tavern still think their beloved club remain a mess off of it. Indeed, with the Gers being so infamously snubbed off by Derek McInnes, it’s lucky the team are actually winning.
With the January transfer window fast-approaching, our local Light Blues are hoping those behind the scenes can get their act together and strengthen the current squad, though reports from the Scottish Sun haven’t exactly filled them with a huge amount of confidence.
They claim Motherwell forward Louis Moult is set to snub a move to Ibrox, as well as Hibernian, to join English Sky Bet Championship side Preston North End, following his impressive time at Fir Park of late. The forward is out of contract in just a few months and has been in prolific form for the Well this season after bagging 14 goals in 18 games, including a brace in the League Cup semi-final against the Gers.
A move to Glasgow had been touted for the 25-year-old, though Alex Neil is understood to have persuaded him to pen a pre-contract deal at Deepdale, before making a move down to Lancashire at the end of the campaign.
Considering his performance against them, the Rangers fans propping up our bar really aren’t happy about this.
Moult could have been an ideal long-term replacement for Kenny Miller, though it’s hard to see Rangers planning for that far ahead in the future. Missing out on his services is a blow whichever way you look at it, though competing financially with a second division English side would have been difficult.
