Rangers Super Fans react as Man Utd register interest in Patterson
This is part of a regular series from our panel of Rangers Super Fans. Each week, our Super Fans will deliver their verdicts on the biggest talking points and news stories around Ibrox. You can join in the discussion on our Rangers Insider Facebook page.
According to 90min, Manchester United are interested in bringing Nathan Patterson to Old Trafford in the January transfer window.
The 19-year-old right-back was subject of bids from Everton in the summer, and it appears his performances for the Scottish national team and the Bears have also caught the eyes of the Red Devils.
Patterson impressed in his first Premiership game of 2021-22 at the weekend, providing an assist as Rangers came from behind to secure a 2-1 win against Hibernian.
Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reckons the teenager can be a quality addition to his defence, and he is eyeing possible reinforcements in the New Year.
We asked our esteemed panel of Rangers Super Fans if they think the club can hold on to the academy graduate amid interest from the Red Devils.
Here’s what they had to say.
The Premiership giants want to hold on to their top players, but that is not always possible as they need to keep boosting their finances to continue challenging at the top end of the table.
Man Utd splashed the cash in the summer and will look to do so again in January in a bid for challenge strongly for the Premier League title.
They are one of the clubs that will readily meet Rangers’ asking price for Patterson, and their offer could be too tempting for the Ibrox decision-makers to turn down.
The youngster would also relish the chance to play in the best league in the world.
Apart from getting to line up alongside some of the best players in the game, the financial package that comes with such a move is life-changing.
Playing for Man Utd is not for everyone, but Patterson seems to have shown those at Old Trafford that he has the quality to do so, and nobody can blame him if he jumps at the chance to switch Ibrox for the Theatre of Dreams.
