Greg Docherty and transfer dealings

Wouldn’t really be the transfer window if there wasn’t a Rangers Rollercoaster somewhere. Whilst Jamie Murphy was stressful enough for us all, Greg Docherty threatens to be just the same.

Whilst the obvious answer is to just give Hamilton the cash they desire, we have to trust our board to do what’s right for our club. There is no doubts Rangers are treated differently in Scotland, other teams are allowed to budget and pay in instalments as is common ground all over Europe.

Rangers however are treated differently, when Rangers come to town deals are complicated and teams demand money up front and structures are different to anything else other clubs experience.

Take the recent Jordan Jones bid, when we placed a bid the furore was a typical response from a Scottish side. It’s more common to turn it into a war and appease a fan base than do what’s best for their club. Good luck to Kilmarnock but I’d be hugely surprised if we went back, personally I hope we don’t. Rangers need to stop being the cash cow for a country determined to hold us to different standards than anyone else.

Hearts lost money for Jamie Walker, but it’s ok they didn’t sell to Rangers. Was there so much of a reaction when Preston put in a derisory bid for Josh Windass? No obviously not.

So that brings us nicely to Greg Docherty. Rangers bid and once again it became public. Rangers once again dealing with a club making demands they wouldn’t make of other sides, once again a Club determined to make the transfer public.

Rangers and Hamilton have yet to reach an agreement but everyone on the Rangers side seem confident and hopeful it will be. The excellent Rocksport radio reported earlier, this deal was close and major break throughs were being made. Since then it’s went a bit quiet. The clubs remain in dialogue and the fanbase wait.

I sincerely hope this one can get over the line and there is a lot more business to be done this window. Rangers are actively trying to offload a few and balance the squad, that may determine future business.

Plans are underway for next season and Mark Allen is hugely impressing everyone behind the scenes. The stadium, as we mentioned before, is receiving the care it needs and investment is being made. It’s ok to be positive about our club, after all it’s Rangers First, we aren’t here to subsidise others.

Congratulations to the young bears today in their fantastic win against Bayern Munich. The future is in good hands with results like this. Aberdeen on Wednesday and hopefully a chance for the team to start an important run of matches, we are capable and a nice chance to see new faces. Hopefully that will include Greg Docherty, let’s hope we can get it done.

Ignore the nonsense, the Irrelevant and the noise 🔴⚪️🔵
