Chris Jack shares Rangers transfer latest with John Bennett and investors ready to dig deep
Chris Jack has suggested that chairman John Bennett and fellow investors at Ibrox are ready to dig deep into their pockets to support Michael Beale’s summer rebuild of the playing squad, as reported in the Glasgow Times.
With a massive turnover of players guaranteed, the manager has already intimated that there will be almost as many new additions as those who will be leaving the club in the coming months.
Jack has also stated that the club could look to sell the likes of Ben Davies, Ridvan Yilmaz, Glen Kamara, Ianis Hagi and Rabbi Matondo to boost the war chest ahead of a critical raid on the transfer market.
He outlined the impact this would have on the wage bill at the club, as well as the out-of-contract players set for the exit at Ibrox, creating a large pot to reinvest.
“Significant sums will be saved in wages and the Ibrox investor pool – headed by new chairman John Bennett – will once again dig deep and stump up if required.”
The club will face great pressure, on and off the pitch, in the new season with various challenges to be met.
Already, the rebuild job on the squad has commenced with decisions made in private, by Beale and his coaching staff.
The manager gave a firm indication on his thinking and planning, in the press conference following the stinging defeat by Celtic in Sunday’s Scottish Cup semi-final.
Huge decisions will be required on those tasked to deliver success in the new campaign but much of that will come down to the finance that underpins it.
Bennett, new CEO James Bisgrove and the rest know that they are stepping into a must-win battle. The club simply can’t afford another season in Celtic’s shadow and Beale’s squad must be equipped to get the job done.
A truly, intriguing few months are set to unfold with the Rangers squad about to be transformed.
