Another Sevco transfer fantasy bites the dust

Celtic Park

Remember when I wrote yesterday that Rangers will not spend a single penny this transfer window.

It seems that I was correct and right after I write this, I’m heading to the newsagents to stick on my lottery numbers for the Euromillions tonight.

The Ibrox club were linked with another Colombian this summer in Mateo Cassierra and whilst the Rangers fans got themselves all in a tizzy, there was absolutely no way a player of that calibre was going to join them.

With less than a year left on his contract at Sochi, and valued at over £4m, Cassierra’s form last season had made some of Europes top clubs sit up and take notice.

14 goals and 6 six assists in 26 appearances, the Colombian is also being courted by Zenith and in a statement today [HITC], the players agent confirmed that a deal had been struck with the Russian club, “Will Cassierra sign a contract with Zenit? We have agreed with the club,” says the 25-year-old’s agent, albeit while adding that the St Petersburg side are yet to submit an ‘official proposal’. 

For the hard of hearing on the south side, let me make it clear again, there will not be a penny spent this summer by your club!

And it must be painful for them sitting watching us strengthen and get out the chequebook!
