Sheffield Wednesday striker Stevie May comments on transfer speculation, amid Rangers interest

Rangers have been linked with making a move for Sheffield Wednesday striker Stevie May.

Speaking to the Star, Stevie May has downplayed the chances of an exit from Hillsborough this summer, despite various reports suggesting he could be heading back to Scotland.

The striker said: “Throughout my whole career, there has been speculation about my future but I don’t take any notice of it. I just concentrate on playing my football.

“I’m focused on one thing and that’s getting into the Sheffield Wednesday first eleven on the first day of the season and progressing from there. That is all I have got on my mind.”

May struggled in his debut season in the Championship, having signed for Wednesday from St Johnstone last summer. Having scored 22 goals for the Scottish side in 2013/15, he managed only seven strikes for Wednesday last term.

However, he has claimed his future remains at Hillsborough, despite reports linking him with a move back to Scotland this summer.

The Evening Telegraph reported that Rangers were looking at the striker earlier this summer, as Mark Warburton wants to strengthen his attacking ranks at Ibrox, whilst the same report also claims that Aberdeen have been making moves over a potential loan deal for May.

Yet he wants to ensure that he continues to develop in English football, and after a season of settling in the Championship, the 2015/16 campaign could be the one in which the Scottish international shows off his true ability in front of the Hillsborough crowds.
