'More chance of Rangers signing Batman' - Fans react to reported interest in Belgian ace
By Danny Wright
Rangers fans have reacted in disbelief on Twitter after a report claimed they are interest in Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi.
The Mirror have reported that the Light Blues are one of four clubs in the hunt for the Belgian striker, who earned just one Premier League start in his debut season at Stamford Bridge following a move from Marseille last summer.
The Belgian ace scored the goal that sealed the league title for Chelsea, when he netted last in the 1-0 win against West Brom at the Hawthorns in May.
Rangers are expected to make big changes to their squad this summer and have already confirmed the arrival of four new faces, but fans haven’t taken this link as seriously – with one supporter saying there’s “more chance” of the Light Blues “signing Batman”.
Here is a selection of their tweets:

The Mirror claims that Chelsea will not be willing to sell Batshuayi unless they find a replacement for him first, with West Ham, Monaco and Sevilla all reported to be in pursuit.
It is said that Diego Costa’s future at Stamford Bridge is uncertain while the Premier League champions are understood to be trying to re-sign Romelu Lukaku from Everton, who are holding out for £100million.
Batshuayi played 28 times across all competitions for Chelsea this season, scoring eight goals.
His only league start came after he scored the title winning goal at West Brom in May and most of his game-time has come from cup competitions.
