Rangers: European qualification could lead to more spending at Ibrox

An exciting Rangers hint has been dropped ahead of Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s first summer window at Ibrox.

What’s the talk?

Van Bronckhrost will be able to target a higher calibre of talent ahead of the 2022/23 campaign according to insider Pete O’Rourke.

When asked whether or not Champions League qualification will impact Rangers’ dealings, O’Rourke told GIVEMESPORT: “Yeah, without a doubt, he’ll be looking at maybe better players.

“Obviously, it gives them more money to work with in the transfer window if they do get into the Champions League with the riches that are on offer there.”

Ibrox will be rocking

The supporters will surely be delighted by this claim from O’Rourke as it suggests that they are in for an exciting summer of transfers if the club are able to win the Europa League on Wednesday night.

Van Bronckhorst’s side clash with Frankfurt in Seville and will be slotting straight into the Champions League group stages if they lift the trophy later this week. Although, they will also have the chance to qualify through the play-off rounds if they fail to do so, for finishing second in the Premiership.

Will Rangers win the Europa League?

Yes

Yes

No

No

This cash boost for the Gers will be massive, as O’Rourke states, and playing in the top European competition can attract a different level of player.

One gem the club are reportedly eyeing up is Chelsea central midfielder Billy Gilmour and Champions League qualification could tempt the Scotland international into making the switch.

What nationality does Mateusz Zukowski represent?

He has played 24 Premier League matches on loan at Norwich this season and this means that a loan to a team in the Scottish top-flight not playing in the premier tournament on the continent may not be too appealing to him. Whereas, Rangers winning the Europa League and going straight into the group stages would be a statement to potential targets that they are a club that is worth joining.

The fans would be buzzing if it allows them to secure a deal for a player like Gilmour. He has caught the eye for Scotland on international duty, averaging an impressive SofaScore of 7.13 in seven World Cup qualifiers as he has shown that he can perform on a regular basis for his country.

Therefore, supporters will be excited to see what kind of gems the club attempt to bring in if they have a boosted budget and a higher standard of football on offer.
