‘No problem’ – Rangers fans warn, transfers have been ‘suspended’

Rangers fans have been warned by multiple unofficial/official sources at Ibrox that Rangers have no intention of doing any business, with multiple fan media outlets confirming that there is no intention of making any sales or purchases.

In a worrying development given Rangers’ current poor form, it has been confirmed that Cagliari are not as close to signing Cyriel Dessers as previously thought, with the sale of Robby McCrorie to Kilmarnock for a modest fee (around £250,000) being the only deal in the offing for the foreseeable future.

This is worrying – as Ibrox Noise has reported on several occasions, the club must sell the club before it can buy it – although the ‘budget’ was set at £25m (£9m of which had already been spent) and was dependent on a large number of sales and cash flows.

It just didn’t happen this summer, apart from some player releases and one modest sale.

As such, both Rangers Review and 4lads have confirmed that there will be no further deals in either direction for the foreseeable future, which is grim news for Rangers fans hoping for some good additions or sales.

It already looks like a hopeless summer transfer window, with a few modest additions, a big outlay for Mohamed Diomandy, but nothing that would change the rules of the game.

And now we hear that the cash register is practically empty and nothing else can happen until we start selling, and that in itself will be a problem because the sales will not be real.

Any Rangers fans hoping for some big signings in the next fortnight are in for a bitter disappointment. As it stands, Rangers are closer to fighting for second place with Hearts or Kilmarnock than closing the gap on Celtic.

Very depressing news.
