It’s been a busy month for the Rangers fans here in the Transfer Tavern thus far and many of the punters propping up our bar are hoping their proactive recruitment policy continues long into the January window. Indeed, with Sean Goss and Jamie Murphy already on board, our local Light Blues are eager for more.
Few would doubt the fact that Rangers need to improve their ranks if they are going to make a real first of things when it comes to finishing second and potentially qualifying for the Europa League run, so reports from the Scottish Sun have gone down really rather well today.
They claim former Ibrox favourite Steven Naismith is ready to take a massive cut in his wages in order to return to Ibrox. The Norwich City man is reportedly ready to leave Carrow Road, despite having 18 months to run on his deal, and is thought to be keen on a return to Glasgow.
In fact, so much so that the Scotland international is believed to be ready to play for FREE. Naismith, who won three league titles over five years in Glasgow after joining from Kilmarnock in 2007, left the club under a cloud during the financial plight in 2012, though is said to be ready to wave his wages to play for the club again this season.
He’s even understood to have offers from elsewhere, though a move back to Rangers is said to be his desire.
While he’d take some warming to again, the idea Naismith would play for free has delighted the punters propping up our bar.
If Rangers can convince Naismith to play for the club for free, there won’t be a better signing in Scotland all month. The Scotland international may have seen his form dip considerably since leaving Everton a couple of years ago, though would add some extra class to an otherwise inconsistent Rangers attack.
