Rangers touted for potential deal south of the border as overhaul continues

Our resident Rangers fans here in the Transfer Tavern are to be fully convinced by Pedro Caixinha’s massive Ibrox overhaul, though are excited how it fares in league competition. 

After so many changes over the course of the summer, our local Light Blues are eager to see just how the Gers compete in the SPFL, after such a disappointing campaign last time out.

Indeed, according to the Daily Mail, it may not be over. They claim the Glasgow giants are amongst a number of clubs casting keen eyes over Wigan Atheltic midfielder Max Power this summer.

The 24-year-old is reportedly being frozen out by Paul Cook as the Latics prepare for a return to League One next term and could apparently be allowed to leave the club for £500k.

He impressed at times in the Championship last term and the likes of Sheffield Wednesday and Cardiff City are also said to be keen on him, with Cook thought to have told Power he will not be selected while the transfer window is open.

Though purchasing a player from a relegated Championship side may not prove overly inspiring, a few of our Rangers fans saw Power play last term and would be relatively happy with his signing.

Landlord’s Verdict 

A combative and energetic midfielder, Power would improve Caixinha’s options at Ibrox. Though he may not instantly command a starting berth, the 24-year-old would increase competition for places in Glasgow and could prove to be an astute addition, especially at a reasonably low price.

Thoughts?
