It’s barely been a vintage year for the Rangers fans in the Transfer Tavern so far, despite a lorry load of changes under Pedro Caixinha’s watch over the course of the summer. Indeed, our local Light Blues are far from pleased.
Whether or not the Portuguese makes it until January is another story, though some promising reports have emerged from the Scotsman in regards to the Ibrox giants. According to them, Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes has hinted the Dons COULD sell reported Rangers target Kenny McLean in January.
The 25-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and is thought to have been the subject of a bid from the Gers during the last transfer window, though remained at Pittodrie. However, those in the Granite City could reportedly consider a sale in the New Year in order to avoid losing him for free.
Having apparently made it clear he won’t be sticking around, McInnes did leave the door open to a potential sale in January, much to the delight of the Rangers fans in our bar.
“I’ve got it in my head that I will be working with him for the rest of the season but, like everything else, we can only control that until then,” said McInnes.
“If we get an offer in January then it may well be something that we would consider like everything else. ”
Obviously, there are much deeper problems at Ibrox right now, though McLean would be a good signing if they can land him on the cheap in January. Weakening a bitter rival, as well as bringing in an experienced Scot, can only be beneficial for the Gers.
