Much has been made amongst the Rangers fans in the Transfer Tavern about the club’s overhaul under Pedro Caixinha, with the punters propping up the bar excited about the new complexion of their team.
While pre-season has barely been much to shout about, our local Light Blues believe the squad will be in slick order when things finally bed in. So, while the notion of discussing just how they’d set up following a busy summer is obviously exciting, there have been some interesting quotes emerging from the Southend Echo today.
Indeed, Phil Brown has revealed his Shrimpers side were keen on bringing Ibrox outcast Harry Forrester to Roots Hall this summer. The 26-year-old may not instantly command a starting berth in Glasgow, though is understood to have snubbed a move down to Essex, in order to fight for his first-team place.
“Harry poured cold water on it but if we could rekindle it then of course I would still be interested,” said Brown.
“But we’ve spent our money in that area now with Michael Kightly and we need a centre-back and a holding midfielder more than anything else.”
Signed by Mark Warburton in the summer of 2016, the former Brentford ace doesn’t seem to have much a future though and is still expected to leave, much to the delight our resident Rangers fans.
Much like many of Warbs’ additions, they’ve not been overly impressed.
