Professional player saying playing in Scotland wouldn't be his 1st choice shocker.

Obviously having a Scottish gran* means he has the utmost respect for Scottish football. It's like a watered down version of "I'm not racist, I have a black friend".

I don't know if we even have a credible interest in him tbh. Even if he was in our thoughts, he shouldn't be anymore. Close the chapter on this one.

There was a rumour flying about a month ago that we were interested but the board or Wilson weren’t too keen offering a deal to him because of his lack of interest coming here. That video confirms it. 
 

Was either someone on here that said it or FF.

In summary, he thinks he is too big for us. We don’t want anyone like that. If our players all have fight, hunger, passion and a genuine excitement about the journey we are on then, on our day, we can beat almost any team. People like that would just detract from the team spirit and the ‘club is bigger’ mentality that SG has instilled.

Was a big admirer of his since ‘that’ game against us, but after that comment it’s a ‘no thanks’ from me.

He wants to play for Gerrard’s team, why would he come here and compromise it. 
We should only sign players that are happy to be at the level of Scottish football?

We have a good team spirit atm. I wouldn't risk bringing in anyone unless they really want it.

The reality is that we play in Scottish football so to some extent, yes, they need to be happy to play here. But more than that, it’s his ‘don’t really fancy it’ attitude that seals his fate for me. I’d be too concerned that he is not going to bust a guy like we need in the more difficult games. He is incredibly gifted but if he doesn’t apply himself then it won’t count for much.

If he busts a guy for Gerrard it'll give us the same outcome as busting a guy for Rangers.

We have lots of options,in a game that doesn’t suit him where he might have to kick a few players then someone else will step in but European games and maybe against them, might make him a decent asset. 
If he does revitalise his career you would be looking at an 8 figure transfer value.
We need to take risks in the transfer market because we can’t afford players with the quality we require, he’s a risk worth taking.

For any supporter of Rangers to think any different,  they would have to be delusional.  SG is one of the very few selling points to the game in Scotland now that EBTs can’t be used. 

European football and trophies are also an attraction which you won't get in England unless you are wanted by one of the big six. In recent years also Wolves and Leicester but Rangers would be a safer option if Europe was you motivation.

Nothing wrong with making those comments privately, but they're a bit silly if there's any chance at all of him joining us.

Backs up what you and I were saying about the pull of Gerrard allowing us to punch above our weight when everyone wanted him about after the Livi and Hibs draws though.
