A big Rangers claim has emerged regarding the Ibrox giants and what could happen during the summer transfer window in Glasgow…
Transfer insider Pete O’Rourke has suggested that Gio van Bronckhorst is set to demand a big budget from Ross Wilson if they end the season without any trophies to show for their efforts.
The Gers failed to win the Premiership title and then lost 5-4 on penalties in the Europa League final earlier this week. They now face off against Hearts in the final of the Scottish Cup on Saturday in their final outing of the 2021/22 campaign.
O’Rourke told GIVEMESPORT: “If they do end up not winning anything this year, I think van Bronckhorst will be asking for the club to dig deep in their pockets to give him the money to change the squad around.”
Ibrox supporters will surely be left feeling excited by this claim, as the prospect of bringing in players for relatively big money is an exciting one.
The last player on whom Rangers spent more than £5m is Ryan Kent, and it is fair to say that the former Liverpool winger has been a success for the Light Blues.
During last season’s title-winning campaign, the attacker provided 10 goals and nine assists from out wide for the Glasgow giants. He created 1.8 chances and completed 1.9 dribbles per game in the Scottish top flight as he was a constant threat in the final third, with his goals and assists making him a key member of Steven Gerrard’s invincibles.
In total, he has scored 30 goals and produced 47 assists in 173 outings for Rangers. The 25-year-old has proven his quality in Scotland over the course of multiple seasons, and this highlights the level of quality which can be brought into Ibrox with a higher level of spending in the market.
If Van Bronckhorst pushes for bigger deals to improve his squad, as O’Rourke suggests that he might, then the Gers may be able to find the next Kent. Having more money to spend expands the club’s horizons and allows them to target players who are excelling elsewhere, instead of needing to rely on free agents and loans.
Therefore, supporters will be excited by these comments and will now be looking forward to the summer transfer window in the hope that Wilson will splash the cash to bolster the squad in the hope of winning multiple trophies next term.
