'Laughing stock', 'Joke board' - Rangers fans fume at reported transfer twist for PL attacker

Rangers’ pursuit of Brighton winger Jamie Murphy has hit a snag – with the latest rumours suggesting it could become a loan deal – and Gers fans are furious with the club’s board over the way the deal is playing out.
Popular Gers podcast Heart and Hand added fuel to the fire by Tweeting that they had heard the deal would become a season-long loan with Rangers signing Murphy on a permanent deal in the summer.

Murphy is a boyhood Rangers fan and was pictured arriving in Glasgow on Thursday to undergo a medical with the Ibrox giants but as the Gers jetted out to Florida for a training camp earlier on Saturday there was still no confirmation that the deal had gone through.
Fans were furious with the Gers board over the way the move has been handled – with one saying it will make the Gers a “laughing stock.”
Here are some of their comments on Twitter:

Murphy is expected to become a Gers player – either on loan or permanently – within the next few days and jet to the United States to link up with his new team-mates.
The Light Blues will face Atletico Mineiro and Corinthians in the Flordia Cup before returning to domestic action on January 21st when they face Highland League minnows Fraserburgh.
