Rangers Football Club may face a significant challenge ahead, as nine of their first team and fringe players are set to leave on a Bosman this summer. Among them are Ryan Kent, Alfredo Morelos, Malik Tillman, Ryan Jack, Filip Helander, Scott Arfield, Steven Davis, Allan McGregor, and Kieran Wright. This could result in a mass exodus from Ibrox, and the club’s management must either extend some contracts or look for replacements.
The situation at Rangers is further complicated by the uncertainty surrounding the future of winger Josh McPake. The 21-year-old, who is currently on loan at Queen’s Park, is reportedly struggling to make an impact in the Scottish Championship. He has started in fewer than 50% of Queen’s Park’s matches this season, and was left out of the squad to face Hamilton last week.
According to reports, McPake’s future at Rangers is ‘hanging in the balance’ and the Gers chiefs are said to be facing a ‘major headache’ over the issue. McPake is out of contract in 2024 and is currently on his sixth loan spell away from Rangers.
Rangers Face Mass Exodus and Winger Uncertainty
While there have been rumours of Falkirk’s interest in signing McPake, Rangers must act quickly to avoid losing him for free next year. The possible transfer fee may be nominal, but it would be better than losing him for nothing.
In summary, Rangers Football Club is facing a challenging situation with several players set to leave on a Bosman this summer. The future of winger Josh McPake is also uncertain, and the Gers chiefs must decide whether to extend his contract, negotiate a transfer deal or risk losing him for free next year.
