The Rangers fans here in the Transfer Tavern are looking forward to the end of the season. Indeed, while things looked to be on the up prior to last month’s Old Firm derby, the punters propping up our bar believe major work needs to be done this summer in order to launch a genuine challenge on Celtic next season.
With that in mind, reports in the Daily Mail have proven interesting. They claim the Light Blues are among a number of clubs in Scotland keen on a move for Kilmarnock midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu after his impressive spell at Rugby Park under Steve Clarke.
The likes of Celtic, Aberdeen and Hibernian are also reportedly keen on a move for the former Norwich City midfielder, who has proven his fitness in Ayrshire after an injury-plagued few seasons in England. There is also thought to be interest from teams south of the border though both Rangers and Celtic could surely offer financial packages just as tempting.
Graeme Murty has admitted work is underway to recruit for next season whether he is in charge or not and, considering Mulumbu’s performances of late, our resident Gers would love to see Mulumbu arrive.
Mulumbu is clearly a cut above the rest at Kilmarnock and would surely be a welcome addition at Ibrox. The 31-year-old would provide a touch of class to a Rangers midfield who often struggle to think on the ball and beating their domestic rivals to his signing would be another feather in Mark Allen’s cap.
