Rangers: Exciting transfer claim emerges for Gio van Bronckhorst

An exciting Rangers transfer claim has been made regarding the Ibrox club’s plans to improve Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s squad this year.

What’s the talk?

Finance expert Kieran Maguire has suggested that the club’s proposed Old Firm friendly later in the year could lead to them being able to bolster van Bronckhorst’s team in the transfer window.

The Gers are set to compete against their arch-rivals in the Sydney Super Cup in Australia in November and it could yield significant financial benefits.

Should Rangers go ahead with the friendly?





Maguire told Football Insider: “If it gives Rangers and Celtic better resources to invest on the pitch, it is a price worth paying.

“I can understand the reaction of the fans. They think these games are so unique that they should only take place in Scotland. They perhaps feel that the unique passion would be diluted by hosting it elsewhere.

“But it helps them pay wages or sign that special player who is going to make a difference, it will have been worth it.”


This claim will surely delight Rangers head coach Van Bronckhorst.

It shows that the club are exploring a multitude of angles to generate funds in order to improve the Dutchman’s squad in the upcoming transfer windows. The board are being creative in order to give themselves the best possible chance to compete in the Premiership and in Europe going forward, even if it means upsetting some fans who do not want to see them take on Celtic in a friendly.

Supporters may have to bite the bullet on this front and think about the potential financial benefit that this tournament can have for Rangers, which Maguire has explained. For example, if playing the Hoops in November allows the club to sign Aaron Ramsey on a permanent deal, that could make it worthwhile for fans, as he would be a fantastic signing on a full-time contract.

How well do you know Morelos? First... who did he score his 100th goal against?

The Wales international has played more than 400 games for Juventus and Arsenal throughout his career and produced 142 direct goal contributions. This illustrates his vast experience and quality at the top level, which is why the Ibrox faithful would surely be keen to see him join permanently at the end of his loan, and additional funds from the Sydney Super Cup could help them to secure it.

Maguire’s claim does not expressly state that the funds generated will or would be spent on signing Ramsey, but this is one example of the benefits which could come from bringing in more money. If they do not sign the former Arsenal midfielder full-time, they could instead swoop for a player with a similar reputation or look to snap up a young, promising player to improve the team, which is why Van Bronckhorst must be buzzing with this news.
