Following reports from the Scottish Sun of late, the Rangers fans in the Transfer Tavern have been discussing what impact West Ham United defender Reece Oxford could potentially have at Ibrox.
One of the most highly-rated talents in the game, the 17-year-old has been touted as a potential target for the Gers in a loan deal that could reportedly see him spend up to 18 months in Glasgow as he continues his development, though Mark Warburton is thought to have a slight conundrum before getting a deal over the line.
It’s believed the former Brentford boss needs to rid of one central defender before he’s able to bring Oxford to Ibrox, with the likes of Rob Kiernan, Danny Wilson, Clint Hill and Philippe Senderos all able to play in those berths.
Well, for the punters in the Tavern, there’s only one option in that regard.
Despite only arriving in the summer, Senderos, in particular, has failed to wholly convince and the Swiss veteran should be axed as soon as possible to make room for the Hammers ace. With Rangers needing to start a long-term rebuild in an attempt to one day catch up with their bitter rivals. the club need to start ridding of ageing players who offer nothing to develop players.
Granted, Clint Hill has proved a decent signing and Kenny Miller continues to defy logic as he hurtles in on 40, though options such as the former Arsenal man are simply taking a big wage in return for nothing, reminiscent of the type of players who led Rangers down the leagues.
Oxford can be the future, even if only on loan, while Senderos is the past.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
