Chairman to have major say in potential Rangers swoop for dazzling midfielder - confirmed
Hamilton manager Martin Canning has revealed chairman Ronnie MacDonald will make the decision over when Greg Docherty is potentially allowed to move to Rangers.
Gers boss Graeme Murty confirmed an approach had been made for the 21-year-old midfielder as he rebuilds the squad he inherited from Pedro Caixinha.
Docherty has two-and-a-half years remaining on his contract at New Douglas Park and has been a stand-out performer for Canning’s side.
The Accies manager admitted Docherty’s future was out of his hands but confirmed he had spoken with the Scotland Under-21 international.
“That’s all Ronnie [MacDonald] the chairman that will deal with that sort of thing,” Canning said, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.
“Whenever I find out is when Ronnie phones me and says the club have accepted an offer for Greg Docherty and that’s when Greg Docherty moves.
“Until that happens Greg is a Hamilton player.
“I spoke to Greg yesterday and he’s a very mature level-headed young boy so his full focus is on making sure that he’s committed to Hamilton and going to do his job.
“If something happens for Greg, as a club we’ve done our job properly.”
Rangers have already brought in four new faces so far this month with Sean Goss, Jamie Murphy Jason Cummings and Russell Martin all arriving at Ibrox.
Docherty has been in dazzling form and made 25 appearances for Hamilton this season, contributing three goals and six assists, to help Accies into ninth in the Scottish Premiership table.
The 21-year-old has already played over 100 games for Hamilton with almost all of them coming in the Scottish Premiership.
