When this story broke late last night, I couldn’t even bring myself to read it. The headline said it all:
“Two Rangers stars rated most valuable players in Scotland with Celtic’s David Turnbull in third”
It was tweet from Football Scotland that claimed a report from The Transfer Room has value Rangers Ryan Kent and Alfredo Morelos as the most valuable players in Scotland.
The report values both at £12.7 (Kent) and £10m (Morelos) with Celtic’s Kyogo (£5.6m) valued LESS than Ianis Hagi (£7.6m) and trophy laden captain, Callum McGregor (£7m) valued less than one medal wonder Joe Aribo (£7.9m).
Unfortunately (and this is strange) there was no direct link or quote from The Transfer Room so we will have to take Football Scotland’s word for it that these valuations are accurate.
The Celtic fans, in their usual gusto, responded brilliantly to this ridiculous report:
🤣👍🤣… could easily put 7 or 8 others in front of him off the top of my head, he wasn’t even top last season when he was on form 🤣👍… is it distract the rangers fans piece time again 😂

if you ignore the striker at celtic who’s worth about £40m imo then you’re 100% accurate. well there are a couple of others……

One would think they’re needing to sell players.

Skint Rangers and everyone is trying to help them out, if he was that good he would be away by now.

No doubt we will see in the coming months just HOW valuable and highly rated these players are as Gerrard will surely spend Villa’s millions to get them down to the EPL right? Right?
