'Great bit of business', 'Tear your hand off' - Rangers fans elated after approach made for playmaker
Rangers manager Graeme Murty has confirmed that an approach has been made for 21-year-old Hamilton midfielder Greg Docherty – and fans are delighted to see the Gers move for the talented midfielder.
“We made an approach, but that’s as far as things have gone,” Murty said, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.
“We are looking to bring players in because we want the group to get stronger and be better.”
Docherty has been a mainstay in the Accies side this season and has clearly impressed Gers boss Murty and director of football Mark Allen.
Gers fans were elated with the news of an approach for the playmaker – with one claiming it would be a “great bit of business.”
Here are some of their comments on Twitter:
Hopefully we offer MOH to Hamilton as part of the Docherty deal, makes the deal a lot more attractive for them n he won’t he any loss to us.. just not Rangers standard unfortunately

We need to hope Docherty tells Hamilton, Rangers are the only club he'll go to & I really hope Cummings arrives, we badly need a striker.

If Rangers get in Docherty and Cummings and keep the likes of Tav and Windass it'll be an exciting second half to the season

Sign Greg Docherty on the merits of his football ability not because he supports Rangers. Look how that worked out with Halliday.

@RangersFC 600K for Docherty imo would be a great bit of business young prospect, sell on fee and rangers fan this is a no brainer for me!

Rangers could complete triple swoop for Russell Martin, Docherty and Cummings according to the papers and rumours. I certainly hope so ????

If @RangersFC signed
Martin ( a bit meh )
And T Roberts on a pre contract I’d tear your hand off ! ????

Rangers have already signed central midfielder Sean Goss as Graeme Murty strengthens his squad going into the second-half of the Scottish Premiership campaign.
The Gers return to domestic action on January 21st when they travel to tiny Bellslea Park to take on Highland League minnows Fraserburgh in the fourth round of the Scottish Cup.
Three days later, the Ibrox giants host Derek McInnes’ Aberdeen in the Scottish Premiership knowing that a win would see them leapfrog the Dons into second-place in the league table.
Docherty has made 25 appearances for Hamilton this season as they try and avoid a relegation battle at the bottom of the Scottish Premiership.
