Former Rangers winger Barrie McKay is set for a move to Greek giants Olympiakos, according to a report, and the Light Blues must have put in a sell-on clause when they let the winger move south or someone at Ibrox has made a massive mistake.
McKay left Rangers 12 months ago after falling out of favour with then-manager Pedro Caixinha and joined Nottingham Forest for £500,000 but after failing to impress at the City Ground now looks set for a move to Greece, according to the Evening Times.
Despite McKay falling out of favour under Caixinha, McKay’s move came as a bit of a surprise at the time and with the winger having left at only 22, it makes sense that the Gers would have negotiated a potential windfall further down the line.
If they haven’t, it is an incredible oversight by the Gers who should be looking to put themselves in a position where they are rewarded for former players’ success over and above FIFA’s solidarity and training payments.
While McKay’s apparent move to Greece isn’t likely to be for any sort of eye-watering figure, it would be good to see the Gers get a little something back if he does sign for Olympiakos and give the Light Blues a little bit more to play with in the transfer market this summer.
