Rangers in-form duo eyed up for last-gasp exit, Dave King to hold talks on Tuesday - report
Rangers chairman Dave King is due to hold crunch talks with manager Graeme Murty over the long-term future of the Glasgow club on Tuesday night, according to a report.
The Scottish Sun claims that King was in Dingwall on Sunday to see the Light Blues beat Ross County 2-1 thanks to goals by Daniel Candeias and Jason Cummings, and now he wants to hold a meeting with Murty, who was given the manager job until the end of the season in December after a farcical six-week-long search for Pedro Caixinha’s successor.
It is understood that with just over 72 hours to go until the January transfer window slams shut on Wednesday night that Rangers are expecting to conclude more business.
The report says that Murty will not be surprised he was to relieve last-gasp bids for any of his players with the deadline now looming and it is said that the in-form duo of Josh Windass and James Tavernier are being eyed up by other clubs.
Football Insider verdict
Murty has done a very impressive job at Rangers so far but it is important that King does not yet give the Englishman the job on a full-time basis. The ex-Under-20s boss is still yet to master his team and we will learn more over the course of the next few months whether he should be given a long-term contract. King may just be wanting to hold talks about transfers, especially as the Light Blues may want to get all their business done by Wednesday morning as they have a game against Fraserburgh in the Scottish Cup on the night. Mark Allen has played a role in the transfer window though, so any late deals may be masterminded by him alone as Murty travels to the Highlands League minnows.
