Rangers can stem misery with capture of £40k-a-week midfielder acing the Championship
Rangers are a club in turmoil.
It wasn’t just the defeat to Celtic at the weekend that confirmed as much, but the manner of the defeat that was equally as concerning for supporters of the club.
Nonetheless, with Andy Halliday engaging in a war of words following his early exit from the field of play on Sunday and Lee Wallace and Kenny Miller being suspended, there arises at least one ray of positivity.
There was a distinct lack of energy and shape at the heart of midfield as the Light Blues were taken apart by Brendan Rodgers’ men.
But that could be rectified if the Gers were to pull off the capture of Jack Colback who has been in impressive form for Nottingham Forest since his loan switch to the City Ground in January.

With a so-called “war of words” ongoing between the midfielder and Rafa Benitez, it looks highly unlikely that the Spanish manager would allow him back into the fold at St James’ Park which means there is potential to launch a loan bid for the player.
Colback’s wages, reported to be in the region of £40,000-a-week, could be an issue, but the 28-year-old might accept that he will have to take a pay cut if he wants to revive his career.
If Mark Allen can snap up the 28-year-old this summer. it will go some of the way to improving tensions at Ibrox and can help to take the club forward.
