'Would light it up in this league' - Rangers fans react to reported £4m bid for prolific striker
Rangers fans have been reacting on Twitter after it was reported that the club has launched a bid worth £4million for Swansea and Scotland striker Oli McBurnie.
The Sun has reported that Steven Gerrard wants to make McBurnie, 21, his first signing as Rangers manager and has moved quick to snap up the Scotland international after his loan deal at Barnsley came to an end.
McBurnie was prolific for Barnsley, scoring nine goals in 17 appearances for the Yorkshire club after joining them in January and as he enters the final year of his contract in the summer, it is understood that Swansea are looking to wrap up a new deal for him.
However the Sun reports that the goal machine would find it almost impossible to turn down a move Rangers, who are his boyhood club.
Leeds and Derby are also said to be interested in the forward ahead of the upcoming transfer window, but it seems that Gers fans are divided on whether McBurnie would be a good signing for them.
It seems that the majority would be happy to see the Rangers-mad forward arrive at Ibrox, while there are some who are concerned about the finances in any potential deal.

One eager supporter claimed that McBurnie would “light it up” in the Scottish Premiership.
Here is a selection of their tweets:
Rangers have bid 4 million for Oli McBurnie. Massive money for someone out of contract in a year.

A huge gamble for us that kind of money on a untried player.
Also I’ll take it with a pinch of salt as agents will be trying to push their players to every club possible to make their fees

Young attacker with plenty potential. Would light it up in this league. Big money for us it pittance in English terms. Reckon there will be decent transfer money avaliable

Hope this rumour of a £4M bid for Mcburnie is false. Good player but money could be better spent elsewhere.
