“Rangers Will Have Somebody In The Press” – John Hartson Pours Scorn On Player ‘Bids’

The need to generate player sales over at Ibrox has never been greater. Since *Rangers shock elimination after a 2-1 home defeat against 10 man Malmo, it is widely known (in fact it was a fact even before the Champions League elimination) that the club needed to sell players to balance the books.

Celtic fans have had to endure the endless press releases of fictitious bids from clubs abroad for their “star” players like Morelos to China or Morelos to Porto and just recently The Sun’s claim that Spartak Moscow were looking at a £10m bid for Glen Kamara.

Spartak immediately denied their interest leaving not only *Rangers red faced but also the journalist that made the claim.

Speaking on Go Radio, former Celtic striker John Hartson ridiculed the press stories and gave in interesting insight at how these “bids” are reported, “The talk about the possibility of a player, moving out of Rangers now because their lack of Champions League Football. Spartak Moscow denied all knowledge of any bid for Glen Kamara.

Rangers will have somebody in the press, the press will have friends, you’d have an agent that links the player to a certain club.

That happened every other week, when you play at the top level. You can just use the press.

Morelos has been linked to every club in the country by the way £20m to Lille last season or Nice and everybody gets carried away.”

So the next time you hear of a £30m bid for Morelos or A.N Other, just remember these words from Hartson, “Rangers will have somebody in the press”.

“It’s Not Even On The Table” – Moreloa Bingo Time As Agent Destroys Sevco Compliant Media

Normally I don’t touch a story regarding Rangers*. Normally, I try to focus on my own team and try to bring you the most up to date stories regarding the green and white hoops. But not today.

And the only reason for that is because for days now we have been subjected to a barrage of media stories from, surprise surprise, The Daily Record and The Sun, telling us that Porto have agreed terms but not a fee.

It’s the same old story every window as the Govan club try to claw in some much needed funds to “balance the books”.

Quick question. If you are losing over £10m per season for the last four seasons, how does one player sale balance the books? I’m sure the Scottish media are looking into that as we speak……..

Unfortunately, I am going to have burst their bubble as former Rangers defender and now agent, Craig Moore, destroyed the Morelos rumour with a devastating admission on The Go Radio Football Show, “From my connections and people that I speak to in Portugal, the Porto thing is not on the table. It’s not even on the table.

“But obviously we keep hearing about it. I would not be surprised if at some stage a club does come in for Morelos because you know he’s at a good age now.

“But look 24, 25 year old, scores goals. Has scored goals at the top top level not only domestically but in European football.

“There’s always going to be interest.”

Dear oh dear. It looks like the emergency Morelos sale is a no goer and that Rangers* will need to find another source o book balancing funds.

There’s always the hope of another mystery bid from China. Right???
