Douglas Park must rip up Rangers transfer rule book in January

Douglas Park must rip up the Rangers transfer rule book in January or walk away from the club after it was revealed that player sales could be key to any signings next month.

The Daily Record revealed on 28 November 2022 that new Rangers boss Michael Beale was given assurances from Park about his budget and spending resources.

Despite this, the report claims that there will be limited resources in January for Beale to spend unless player sales are made in the window.

“Rangers chairman Douglas Park has vowed to support Beale going forward and there will be limited funds for the January window unless cash is generated from player sales,” as quoted by the Daily Record.

In a time where the club have swayed the direction of the team in a massive way, they now need to go one step further and back Beale to the fullest in the January transfer window.

Park must rip up his tight-stringed transfer rule book and prove he is willing to invest in the Gers to make Beale and the club a success or walk away from Ibrox entirely.

Now or never.

The whole player sales to invest more new talents into the squad has become an annoying narrative surrounding the Light Blues in recent campaigns.

There simply must be money to be spent after a frugal summer transfer window in 2021 alongside the club getting to a UEFA Europa League final.

Player sales were the best the club have seen in years too with Nathan Patterson, Joe Aribo and Calvin Bassey all leaving the club for decent sums.

Park must step up to the plate in January and transform the current weak Gers squad, it’s the only way Beale has a chance of succeeding.

Rangers finally have a manager who the fans are backing to succeed, but he needs the support of the hierarchy to do his job properly.

It’s simply time to put up or shut up for Park, he’s done the right thing in appointing Beale as head coach but it’s worthless if the club don’t spend in January.

In other Rangers news, Chris Sutton has already poured scorn on the new man in charge’s message to the Bears fans.
