Eagles turns down Rangers move

Published Add your comment

Burnley winger Chris Eagles will not be moving to Rangers after deciding the transfer was "not in his best interests".

The clubs had agreed a fee for the winger, who toured Ibrox and visited the Gers' Murray Park training ground on Wednesday.

The 24-year-old, who has a year remaining on his Turf Moor contract, also held discussions with Rangers boss Walter Smith and chief executive Martin Bain. But Eagles was unable to agree a deal and will now join the Clarets on their tour to Singapore next week.
