Finance Expert shares Rangers transfer verdict after Chris Jack update

We’re delighted to welcome football finance expert Dr Daniel Plumley as our exclusive columnist. Each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Rangers...

Dan Plumley has insisted that Rangers need to invest in the January transfer window under Philippe Clement to protect future revenue and success.

Chris Jack has already reported that the Ibrox board will do all they can to release funds for more new signings in the winter window, which is two months away.

The finance expert admitted that will come with clear risks, but it has to be the strategy at play to drive the club on after a poor start to the season.

“It’s symptomatic of where the club is at the minute,” he exclusively told Ibrox News.

“The slow start they didn’t want, you are then playing catch up and with the Champions League disappointment, a new manager, a new wave optimism, they know where they need to get back to in terms of this season, and the short term objectives.

To do that, you’ve almost got to come out and say we are committing to this in January for the new manager and whatever he needs.

That doesn’t come without its risks, but it has to be a strategy Rangers are looking at given, as I say, their standing in Scottish football and where they want to drive the club on.

They will know it will come at a cost but they need to invest to protect revenue generation and longer-term sporting success.”

In other Rangers news, Plumley has insisted that the club can argue they have missed out after a £900m+ deal was signed off elsewhere
