So I am put myself out there for yet another slagging for having the audacity to post a rumour. Here it is and my source is integral to Rangers. Shankland will be signed in January and Lowry is going the other way. The fee is likely to be £4million plus Lowry. Of note: Shankland isn't our marquee signing striker. Rangers are going to invest as Europe has allowed us to spend more.

I like Shankland but £2.5-3M tops IMO. Including the value of any player going with the deal.

Given the posts about Lowry on here recently I don’t think hearts would take him even if we gave him to them for free. Shankland is good but for me the cost to buy him outweighs the benefit of having him. Fantastic finish tonight but was poor outwith that.

Clemont has not come to Rangers without the promise of backing, the title is there to be won and he will be backed, if that’s the price and he wants him in then I think it will be done.

I'm honestly bewildered to why shankland ain't worth 4 million

Look at his goal tonight
The guy is a top class striker

If he was English n he would be worth 20

He's worth his weight in gold

I really hope we sign him as he is better n lammers, dessers , n yes also danilio

How many more goals dose a guy need to score too prove he's well good enough too pul on our Jersey

This boy would bag easily 25 a season for us

He's proved time n time again He's no a one season wonder

If we want too win the league, thus guys a major step in the right direction ? if we need too break the bank a bit

Shankland is the guy too do it for

He's prolific a total fox in and out the box

This guy would make our team ten times better.

Why do many of our fans think Scottish players are not good enough to play for us? Shankland is a no brainier at the right price!

Rangers board would need sacked if they paid 4million plus Lowry

Maybe hearts value him at 4 million but we would be mad to pay anything more than 2 million

And even that for a guy with 1.5 year and getting on in years that failed in Belgium and is maybe 3rd or 4th choice for Scotland is too much.

15.) 28 Dec 2023
28 Dec 2023 01:57:08
That’s what we need to remember here he can’t even get a game for Scotland fair enough as a Scottish back up but not our no1.

16.) 28 Dec 2023
28 dec 2023 04:12:48
i've said for weeks rangers have spoken to hearts re shankland more than once i also said there's probably 2 strikers coming, because we need them urgently and imo shanks fits us perfectly right now.

17.) 28 Dec 2023
28 dec 2023 04:16:53
gofor, try ending the endless " failed in belgium bit, you have zero knowledge of his time in belgium, maybe he hadn't settled, maybe he didn't like his teammates, maybe many other reasons, he won't be the first nor last to not make it abroad, laudrup never exactly made it in england, did he?

18.) 28 Dec 2023
28 dec 2023 04:18:59
and we don't need to remember anything about shankland scotland career, not one bit of it has anything whatsoever to do with rangers, there's a million players you can point that stick at, , more drivel about scotland and belgium, give yourself a rest man,

19.) 28 Dec 2023
28 Dec 2023 06:20:15
Tom, did he not ultimately fail? Regardless of reason.

And is he not third or fourth choice for Scotland?

Don’t get me wrong, he would be a solid backup option but I just can’t see us paying 4 million plus Lowry for a guy with 1.5 years on deal.

I’d rather leave him at hearts for the year and go back when he has 6months remaining as for Lowry we should be looking to get him a loan abroad if possible and would be mad to let him go as a makeweight in a deal for shankland.

20.) 28 Dec 2023
28 Dec 2023 06:25:14
There it is people can’t back up with facts, jump to insults when all I was doing was making a point about 4 million valuation.

21.) 28 Dec 2023
28 Dec 2023 06:27:00
And for the record, I’d be happy with shankland signing, but just not four million plus Lowry.

2.5 million tops only no Lowry unless it’s just another loan.

22.) 28 Dec 2023
28 Dec 2023 06:52:11
No reason whatsoever to doubt your info on shankland, otterspocket, as you at least shared what your source told you and thanks for that mate. ? On previous you've always had good info, otterspocket and you also TT12, so I most definitely don't doubt either of you ?.

23.) 28 Dec 2023
28 Dec 2023 07:08:54
People saying that Hearts are out of order for wanting so much money for Shankland. Hearts are playing for a 3rd place finish with European money at stake. Who will replace Shankland?

It’s a big gamble for Hearts. There’s no way I would sell him cheap, knowing it might cost a place in Europe.

24.) 28 Dec 2023
28 Dec 2023 07:09:47
I think that most are saying here that they could see Shankland doing a job for us - but that the price needs to be right too! (given age and his current contract) and my opinion also is that I would like to see Clement get Lowry under his wing too first to be truly assessed / worked with, before off-loading the boy as part of any deal.

25.) 28 Dec 2023
28 Dec 2023 08:21:32
Funny how people would happily pay 4 million for someone like Dessers but not Shankland. It seems if he plays in a foreign land its a great signing but when its a player from Scotland who we know can score goals in our league he's apparently not worth 4 million. Look at Yilmaz for instance why did we sign him when Doig was vauled around the same money?

26.) 28 Dec 2023
28 Dec 2023 08:26:59
Lowry is crap so we are just getting rid. Shankland may give us goals to win the league automatically enter the champions League and all of a sudden he was a good bit of business.

27.) 28 Dec 2023
28 Dec 2023 08:32:56
I don’t care what striker / strikers we get as long as they score goals and help us win games I’ll
Be happy. If we beat the Tim’s next, the title race is well and truly on so hopefully we get who we need In the door as said above pronto! No time for messing about. 2nd half of the season is huge and Big Phil will be eager to go… I just want winners in our team no matter who they are or where they come from. If Shankland can do that job for us so be it.

28.) 28 Dec 2023

Who happily paid 4 million for dessers?

I would take shankland but needs to be at the right price 4/ 5 million reported what hearts want is too much that’s just my opinion it’s not snobbery on my part as I want a lot of Scottish players we didn’t get unlike some on here.

30.) 28 Dec 2023
28 Dec 2023 09:01:53
I was told back in the middle of December that Shankland was going to be signing for Rangers. Infact, I was told the day we played Hearts away. One of my mates works for Tesco bank and works in the digital side of things. He was interviewing the CEO, who is on the board of Hearts and he told him that Shankland is away and going to Rangers. I am hoping it is going to be this month as I think he would be a useful addition.

31.) 28 Dec 2023

Agree Fergie but it’s all the better if we beat that lot and really put the pressure on them ?.

32.) 28 Dec 2023
28 Dec 2023 09:22:25
All that matters is, can shankland score in Scotland. Spl is our bread and butter. we have been desperate for a 20+ goal scorer for over a decade, we were foolish to let Colak go. If we have to pay arovnd 3mil to get Shankland then so be it. Who cares if he has no sell on value, that's not important for every signing, 20+ goals a season will repay the outlay. Big Boyd's goals were invaluable and so would Shankland's. Get the boy signed. Oh and he has 6 goals in 12 games in europe. That's 1 in 2 and we know how some love that in a striker?. You's said it would cost upwards of 10mil to replace el? ?. Bargain then if we get Shankland for around 3mil.

33.) 28 Dec 2023
28 Dec 2023 09:38:07
No way on earth are we paying 4m for Shankland IMO. Plus Lowry? If we do that's terrible business. 2m? Yes and that's it. Sorry but I'm sick if reading about Shankland.

34.) 28 Dec 2023
28 Dec 2023 09:43:37
Otterspocket I don't see why you think that because people have different opinions they are slagging you off for posting a rumour. It's a rumours site and without people posting it wouldn't be here.
If you expect everybody to agree with what you post then you're kidding yourself on.
If you're correct then you can come back and glory in your information.
Until then people are entitled to respond.

Shankland for me is a no brainier even if he costs a bit to get it done.

We paid £3.5m for Lammers and he’s not shown us anything yet.
We paid £5m for Dessers who’s older than Shankland and although he’s looking a bit better now he’s hardly prolific given the opportunities he gets.
We paid £6m for Danilo and he has struggled.

Shankland has proven time and again that he is a prolific scorer.
Add to this (I know it shouldn’t matter) the guy is a die hard Rangers man who would give his all for the club.

If anyone on here was asked would they pay £3m to £4m to see in the league they would all say yes I’m sure - this guy could score the goals to win it in my opinion.

I just don’t get why we are happy to spend a fortune on gambles from outside Scotland when we have someone we know can score right in front of us.

I hope we get Shankland, another forward and a midfielder in this window.

36.) 28 Dec 2023
28 Dec 2023 09:53:52
Tbh I trust big Phil to bring in good players. If he wants Shankland and thinks he can get value for money out of him then I 100% back our manager. At the end of the day striker is our biggest issue at the moment and I don’t think anyone doubts that Shankland would get us goals.

37.) 28 Dec 2023

Stormtrooper there was lots of posters on here in the summer saying sign Dessers up.

38.) 28 Dec 2023
28 Dec 2023 10:19:10
You're usually pretty sound for info Otters, I really think it's a small minority on here that don't want Shankland, that said, slightly overpriced at 4m plus Lowry, but I watched him last night and although it wasn't his best game, he was industrious, vocal to his teammates and a stunning finish for the winner, we need someone like that. The next top scorer for hearts after him is own goals? So you can see why they want money for him, if we didn't pay it and he went somewhere else and was banging them in, there'd be loads on here screaming for the boards head.

39.) 28 Dec 2023
28 Dec 2023 10:22:15
Shankland would score for us but 25 a season? He’s no getting our pens so a dout he’s going to hit those numbers.

40.) 28 Dec 2023
28 Dec 2023 10:30:50
I will go out on a limb here and say Lowry will never make it at Us… too many stories regarding attitude to be false… if we can get a chunk off the Shankland deal by throwing Lowry in I would jump at it… Shankland is exactly what we need in right now… proven goal scorer in Scottish league.

Just out of curiosity, how do so many of the posters on here work out the value of a player?

I get we can all take a punt, but so many seem so sure that their value is accurate.

I'd like us to sign Shankland, I think he improves us.

43.) 28 Dec 2023
28 Dec 2023 11:44:17
Harhun I would have to agree with you on Lowry mate
There’s loads of chat that his attitude stinks and I can remember seeing a clip from pre season where he said something that did make me think this lad needs to conduct himself better.
I hope I’m wrong and he turns into a class act but if your team mates think your a fanny then your up against it.

Molsgoals - He might be better in some areas although I haven’t seen much of that so far but he’s certainly not better at putting the ball in the net and that’s what really counts.
Dessers is definitely playing better now though and I hope he goes onto be a good signing.

44.) 28 Dec 2023
28 Dec 2023 11:45:02

Wonder how much people value Lowry when they say make him part of deal, mb squeeze 500k for him.

28 Dec 2023 12:00:55
Me as well mols I think the way dessers has been playing he would keep shankland out the team at the moment. I would try and get van veen for 500k or so as back up. Honestly when batman is back and ano it might be next year but shankland would be 3rd choice then imo.

49.) 28 Dec 2023
28 Dec 2023 13:28:17
Wouldn`t mind seeing Shankland at Ibrox but not at £4 million, never mind £4million plus Lowry . £2 million or £2.5 million max. should be value of total deal . If they want a loan of another youngster then fair enough but that should be it . That will be his price in the summer unless he signs an extension to his current deal and we shouldn`t spend an extra £2 million just to get him 6 months early.

50.) 28 Dec 2023
28 Dec 2023 17:35:23
Can’t remember anyone saying hearts out of order wanting four million for them he’s probably worth four million in. Terms of finishing third in league and results going forward but he’s not worth 4 million to rangers as he’s proved very little yet just because you can do it at dunes united and hearts doesn’t mean you can do it at rangers. he’s equally not done it at stmirren and Aberdeen.

To be clear not saying he won’t but after the money spent on desserrs lammers I can’t see us putting 4 million on a player that will have very little resale value.

I want him at rangers but not just yet and not at 4 million.
