Swansea City fans urge Oliver McBurnie not to join Glasgow Rangers

Ibrox side Glasgow Rangers have been heavily linked with Oliver McBurnie, with Steven Gerrard reportedly keen on the striker.

Swansea City supporters have urged Oliver McBurnie to stay, amid reports he could be joining Glasgow Rangers.

The Sun have suggested that Steven Gerrard has made McBurnie one of his first targets to bring to Ibrox.

Rangers are believed to be prepared to pay £4 million for the young forward.

But McBurnie tweeted a picture of himself in a Swansea shirt over the weekend, perhaps as an attempt to quell the rumours of a potential move to Ibrox.

And Swansea fans have quickly fired messages to McBurnie urging him to stay with them and not move to Glasgow.

McBurnie has proven his scoring credentials in the Championship this season, after hitting eight goals on a loan spell with Barnsley.

There is a hope from Swansea fans that he will stay with them and be their leading man as they aim for promotion back to the Premier League, but Rangers’ interest complicates matters.

McBurnie has just one year remaining on his contract at Swansea, and Rangers are looking to persuade him to move to Scotland.
