Rangers don’t have an option to buy clause in the contract of loan signing Florian Kamberi, according to Football Insider.
In exchange for the £675k-rated, as per Transfermarkt, 25-year-old, Greg Docherty moved to Hibernian on a temporary deal. The move is unlike that which brought Ianis Hagi to the club from Belgian outfit Gent with the Gers holding the option of making his loan move permanent come the end of the season (via BBC).
The on-loan Hibernian man has shown in flashes that he can be an important player for the Gers should they choose to sign him on a permanent deal.
Despite having scored just one goal and got one assist, they both came in the 2-2 draw away to St Johnstone earlier this year, a game where he showed his quality. He was on fire during that fixture and single-handedly ensured Steven Gerrard’s side left McDiarmid Park with a point. As a matter of fact, he performed so well he got a seven out of 10 from The Herald, the highest rating of any Rangers player despite the fact he came on at half-time.
The Swiss-born Albania international has been used as a centre-forward/left-winger during his time at Ibrox, showing his versatility in the forward line. He has been backed to secure a permanent switch to Glasgow with former Gers man Sergio Porrini claiming the club can help him develop (via Daily Record).
With Celtic sitting 13 points ahead in the Scottish Premiership and the club facing Bayer Leverkusen in the Europa League last-16, Kamberi has the opportunities from now until the end of the season to show his worth. And with the attacker having gone on record to claim it was a ‘dream’ to play for the Blues, a return to Hibs remains awkward and boosts his chances of remaining with the second-placed side.
