Rangers consider ripping up Josh McPake contract, exit looks imminent
Rangers are now considering ripping up the contract of Josh McPake, according to Football Scotland.
The online outlet has reported on their website that the 20-year-old has no future at Ibrox following disappointing loan spells with Tranmere and Morecambe.
It is suggested that McPake’s attitude has come under question, with the Bears not happy with his progress in recent years.
McPake currently has two years left on his deal at Ibrox.
That means that Rangers will need to pay up the rest of that or come up with a settlement figure with the young midfielder to go their separate ways.
Ibrox figures are exploring all possibilities as they look to cut ties completely with the prospect who was once tipped for a big future in Glasgow.
After five loan spells away from Glasgow in recent years, it now looks likely that a permanent exit will be next on the cards.
Giovanni van Bronckhorst will have been given a youth report when he arrived at the club with those away on loan.
Zeb Jacobs has come into the club to work closely with the academy following spells in Belgium, and he will have assessed everyone.
McPake is clearly one of those who has no future, as he struggles to make an impact in the third and fourth tier of England, never mind top-flight Scottish football as well as European football.
The likes of Alex Lowry are much more deserving, and if the money used on wages for McPake can be used to find another player of that quality, we would be laughing.
It is a big decision to make, but the footballing world is brutal and if the attitude of someone who has made nothing near to an impact at the club is under question, it is best to cut ties.
