Warburton target attracting serious interest amid Rangers overhaul, bid already thought to have been made

Hopeful of seeing off the task at hand in order to make it to the Europa League, the Rangers fans in the Transfer Tavern have enjoyed the complexion of their summer so far. 

Indeed, the Light Blues propping up the bar have been delighted to watch Pedro Caixinha stamp his authority onto the Ibrox squad and some of the more optimistic Gers frequenting in their droves are even discussing a potential title tilt next term.

With that in mind, reports from the Scottish Sun have actually gone down surprisingly well. While this time last year, the idea of Barrie McKay leaving the club would have struck fear into the hearts of some of our locals, reports suggesting he’s attracting serious interest do little to concern our resident Rangers fans.

Nottingham Forest and Cardiff City are understood to be seriously weighing up offers for the 22-year-old forward, with Forest – managed by the unpopular Mark Warburton – already thought to have tabled an offer.

Rangers are said to have imposed a £750k valuation on the Scotland international, with the Reds’ reported bid claimed to have fallen short of that. Neil Warnock’s Cardiff are reported to have identified him as a potential alternative to Jonny Hayes, who joined Celtic from Aberdeen recently.

Following the emergence of exciting new additions this summer, many of our local Gers aren’t too bothered if McKay departs Ibrox.

Thoughts?
