Stuart McCall responds to latest transfer rumours surrounding Nicky Law

Rangers FC

Stuart McCall has played down speculation that Nicky Law could leave Rangers this summer.

Rangers manager Stuart McCall has told the BBC that fans should take speculation surrounding Nicky Law's future at Ibrox 'with a pinch of salt'.

McCall was speaking ahead of tonight's clash with Livingston, but his match preparations have been disturbed by rumours about Law's future.

The Daily Mail reported earlier this week that Law, 27, had become a target for as many as ten Championship clubs after a fine run of form under McCall.

The midfielder played for McCall at Bradford City and Motherwell before they were able to reunite at Rangers in March upon McCall's appointment, so it's no surprise that he's been a key player in the early stages of McCall's reign.

The Daily Mail reported that bids of up to £500,000 could be arriving this summer, with Birmingham City, Brighton and Hove Albion, Bolton Wanderers, Huddersfield Town and Reading amongst the interested clubs.

However, McCall has told the BBC that the rumours are nothing more than paper talk, and tried to reassure fans that it's nothing to worry about.

"Lawsy's probably got something that I never had as a player and that's a very good agent," said McCall. "All you need is an agent to know one person at a newspaper to put a story on the back page."

"He's not only a good player - he's got a good agent," he added. "One newspaper has run with it - 10 clubs, half a million pounds. I think you take that with a pinch of salt."

Law is under contract at Ibrox for one more year, bit if Rangers fail to win promotion back to the Scottish Premiership, they could be at risk of losing Law, who may want a return to English football if the offer is right.
