Barry Ferguson doesn't think that Rangers needed to sell anyone in the last transfer window
Former Rangers man Barry Ferguson has revealed that he thinks the club aren’t in desperate need to sell any of their players.
Ferguson also believes that now the transfer window is closed, the likes of Ryan Kent and Alfredo Morelos can regain focus.
However, he seems convinced that the Gers would have sold players if they had been in desperate need of funds. [Daily Record].
He said: “They would have sold if they had to.
“Stewart Robertson has said that they will need to sell, that is the structure going forward, with one or two assets. With Douglas Park, they have a real top businessman in charge, and if they were desperate, they would sell.
“That tells me that they ain’t and that they are still getting enough money coming in from the Europa League. I think the noise that has been going about the likes of Morelos, Kent; now these guys can focus.
“The next window isn’t for another four months, so they can focus on the most important thing, getting back to top form and playing football again.”
Is Ferguson right?
There has been a lot of talk since the transfer window ended that Celtic had a better transfer window than their rivals because they sold their top players [Ewan Murray].
This seems beyond strange to us as surely the best way to win things and continue to dominate is by keeping your best players?
Therefore, we feel as if the Gers should be praised for holding onto the likes of Morelos and Kent, but instead, they have been criticised.
Ferguson raises an interesting point, and though Rangers want to start selling some of their players in the future, perhaps they didn’t need to this year.
This means that Gers fans can enjoy their top stars for a while longer yet and hopefully see them win another SPFL title.
