Rangers recruitment chief claims interest in this market to sign players for Gers

Rangers are doing well in the Scottish Championship at the moment.

Rangers’ Head of Recruitment, Frank McParland, has told The Glasgow Evening Times that he plans to sign players from the Scottish market in the summer transfer window.

The Gers are going strong in the Scottish Championship at the moment and are likely to gain automatic promotion to the Scottish Premiership at the end of the season.

This means that Rangers will need to sign players in the summer transfer window in order to make themselves competitive for the Scottish top flight.

McParland has revealed that he will be looking inside Scotland to sign players for the 2016-17 campaign.

“I would say that I am really interested in the Scottish market,” McParland told The Glasgow Evening Times. “I have never really done loads of work in Scotland.

“I remember when I was in the Academy at Liverpool trying to sign Darren Fletcher and I was gutted when I didn’t get him because I thought he was a top player.

“I have always looked in Scotland. John Fleck was another one so there are some really good players. Now, seeing the SPL, and I have watched a lot of games, I think there are some good players in there.”

It is great that Rangers are planning to sign Scottish players in the summer transfer window, and that is going to go down well with the fans.

However, the Gers should not limit themselves to just Scotland and should try to sign the best players available.

Rangers are a big club, and there will be many good players willing to play for them if they get promoted to the Scottish Premiership at the end of the season.
