There has long been a thought that Rangers will one day sign Swansea striker Oli McBurnie, who is a well-known fanatical fan of the Ibrox club.
Indeed, a recent report in the Sun claimed that the Gers were willing to bid £4million to make the 21-year-old’s dream move a reality.
The only problem with that is that the player is not worth the money that the Gers seem willing to splash out on him.
He did score goals last season for Barnsley, nine in 17 games, but it wasn’t enough to stop the Yorkshire side being relegated to League One.
There’s no doubt that the player has an eye for goal – although he did miss a great chance for Scotland v Peru – and being a Gers fanatic he would give 100% every game.
But spending so much money on a player whose contract runs out in a year’s time seems very odd.
There is no doubt that McBurnie would be willing to stay with Swansea for another season to move to Ibrox on a free transfer, and the Gers could move on to other targets, like Brighton’s Connor Goldson.
It does seem inevitable that one day McBurnie’s dream will come true, and he will pull on the Light Blue shirt and cone out of the tunnel at Ibrox.
But for the price that has been quoted, the dream move should be stopped for a year at least.
