Rangers 3

All the latest news and views from Ibrox, including Robbie Crawford’s determination to play for Rangers and Mike Ashley lending the club a further £1 million…

Rangers midfielder Robbie Crawford has said that he is learning and developing while out on loan at Greenock Morton.

The 21-year-old will be with the Scottish League One outfit until January, and he is determined to return to Ally McCoist’s side a better player.

‘I'm here to January’, The Evening Times quotes the youngster as saying. ‘It gives you an incentive to do well knowing what you could be going back to play in.

‘I'm here to learn, play well and do a job for Morton and hopefully that is enough to get me back in the manager's thoughts at Rangers.

‘I'm just trying to take it one game at a time at the moment, though. It's about learning as much as I can and above all enjoy it’.

Meanwhile, former Rangers manager Graeme Souness has revealed that he was part of Brian Kennedy’s party which was trying to buy into the club three weeks ago.

‘I had a week with Brian in Majorca three weeks ago’, The Evening Times quotes the 61-year-old as saying. ‘But if it's not to be it's not to be. Did Rangers miss a trick not accepting his offer? They certainly did the first time around.

'I don't know how Brian feels right now, but I think his attitude to it has changed now the other folk are involved. If it had happened the first time around it would have the right people running it for the right reasons.

'That would have been Walter [Smith] and I and the right person as the owner. All of us there for the right reasons’.

Kennedy’s offer was turned down by the Rangers directors, who accepted a £2 million loan from Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley. Ashley has now lent the Scottish giants a further £1m.
