Rangers hopes to sign Morgan Whittaker still alive amid recent development

The hopes of signing Morgan Whittaker from Swansea are still alive for Rangers after he failed to make the bench against QPR on Saturday, 21 January.

According to the Daily Record [21 January], had he played for Swansea, he would not have been able to feature for the Gers again this season.

That’s according to FIFA rules that do not allow players to feature for more than two clubs per season and if he featured for Swansea, he would not have been signed by another club.

Move still on?

It’s clear that Rangers need to sign a new winger this month and the fact that Whittaker didn’t make the matchday squad suggests he could be on his way out.

It looks like the board is backing Beale to the T with transfers and that’s extremely refreshing to see given how they didn’t do that with Giovanni van Bronckhorst.

Despite qualifying for the Champions League, the Dutchman wasn’t given adequate signings and it eventually led to him losing his job.

Beale surely would have signed under the assurance of getting a certain number of players during the January transfer window.

It seems like his plan is working and at least three new faces could walk through the door at Ibrox over the next two weeks.

This is certainly a good thing for the club and it will help them challenge Celtic in the league despite a massive points difference.

A few bad results for them put Rangers right into the mix and that’s exactly what Beale will be telling his players each time Celtic drop points.

In other Rangers news, the club are now fancying their chances of major a January transfer after Fabrizio Romano’s update with a move on the cards.
