Rangers set to attend major transfer summit involving more than 250 clubs


Rangers are set to attend a transfer summit as they ramp up their plans for the summer market, per The Daily Record.

The transfer window has, of course, been thrown into chaos because of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

However, the report claims that there will be a virtual transfer meeting that will involve over 250 clubs in the coming days. 

It will allow clubs to discuss potential moves online and Rangers have already been active, securing the permanent signing of Ianis Hagi after an initial loan move. 

The Record report states that TransferRoom, who have organised the meeting, have previously played a part in more than 350 transfers. 

A previous meeting was held in Barcelona last year, and such clubs as Arsenal and Juventus will be represented this time out.  

It remains to be seen, of course, if the meet-up will lead to Rangers securing some more talent as they look to grow and improve under the management of Steven Gerrard. 

GIVEMESPORT’S Harry Sherlock says…

The transfer window has changed. 

Taking negotiations into an online sphere, though, makes sense, especially given the current importance of self-isolation. 

Rangers, though, seem to be going full steam ahead as they look to make deals happen. 

Indeed, the Gers are currently the second-best team in Scotland, by a distance, as they have 67 points, 21 more than third-placed Motherwell. 

They are, though, 13 behind leaders Celtic; perhaps this summit could lead to the kind of signing that will take the club to the next level.
