Ibrox flop Jack Simpson is wanted on loan by Middlesbrough. 

Last January the Ibrox club were delighted to announce the signing of the defender on a four year contract as they planned for the possible departure of Conor Goldson. 

Simpson got the full Beckenbauer treatment, comparisons with Virgil van Dijk but the reality is that he makes Harry Maguire seem agile and athletic. 

Steven Gerrard was loathe to pick his own signing, leaving the former EPL star out of his Europa League squad with Giovanni van Bronckhorst also body-swerving the 25-year-old. 

Utility man James Sands has been brought in on loan with The Sun revealing news of interest in Simpson: 

MIDDLESBROUGH are set to offer Rangers defender Jack Simpson a route out of Ibrox. The Championship side want to take the out-of-favour 25-year-old on loan from Gers. 

Boro boss Chris Wilder is an admirer of the ex-Bournemouth ace. The stopper’s career has stalled at Gers. Simpson has hardly featured since moving from the Cherries a year ago. 

The England Under-21 cap has started just two games this term, and was not included in the club’s Europa League squad. 

Rangers have told Simpson he is free to leave before the transfer window closes, if a suitable deal can be struck. 

On February 1 the Ibrox club announced: 

RANGERS Football Club are today delighted to announce the signing of defender Jack Simpson from AFC Bournemouth on a four-and-a-half year deal. 

Simpson, 24, has Premier League experience with the Cherries, and this season, has played an important role in their bid to be promoted back to England’s top flight, where they sit in the play-off places, just five points off an automatic promotion slot.

    Another player “bought” but NOT payed for “Kent” etc etc . Another payment or payment’s must be due . I wonder if they included this type of money owed in the £23.5m of debt that “the rangers” have admitted to. Personally I don’t, I say this because they only admit what they have to even then it has to be dragged out of them

    The undisclosed sum for Patterson is it undisclosed because it is not as much as they say.

  • Peter Cassidy says:

    Any fee thats quoted regarding the bigot players will be double or more than what the really get Patterson fee they had to sell to keep things ticking over will the buy a replacement or any other player fee around £8 million half up front and further on playing for Everton first team and Scotland games also if only 500 fans still in play come Jan their will be big cash flow problems at the bigot dome and other clubs including our own worrying times ahead but we have a decent bank balance at present thats why cl is a must for both clubs.
