£10,000-a-week offers made for international forward eager for Rangers switch - BBC
Norwich are expected to loan out forward Steven Naismith in the January transfer window and have already received two offers, according to a report.
BBC Scotland claims on the BBC Sport website that Naismith, 31, is eager for a return to Rangers this month as he is prepared to leave Carrow Road after barely featuring in Daniel Farke’s first-team plans.
It is understood that two English clubs have made offers to pay £10,000-a-week in wages to have Naismith on loan for the second half of the season – a figure that is believed to be what Norwich is demanding.
Naismith, who left Rangers in 2012 on a free transfer to join Everton in the aftermath of the financial meltdown at Ibrox, has recently made it clear that he would like to have a second chance with the Glasgow giants.
The Scottish Sun has since reported that the Scotland international would be willing to play for free in order to move to Ibrox.
Football Insider verdict
Forget about what Naismith said or did when he left Rangers in acrimonious circumstances in 2012 – the Scotland forward is a cut above everyone else at Ibrox right now. Although Alfredo Morelos has done well this season, Naismith is miles ahead of the Colombian. He’s experienced, he’s scored goals wherever he has gone and he is a Scot who is desperate for a second chance in Glasgow. How many players outside of Scotland are desperate to play for the Gers right now? Naismith would be the kind of player to close up the gap to Celtic. He’s done something that Leigh Griffiths has failed to do and that is prove himself in England. Things aren’t going as planned at Norwich at the moment, but his time at Everton shows that he is still quality.
In other Rangers news, the Gers have tabled a six-figure bid for this international attacker.
