It could have all be so different, if Ramsey had only scored and McGregor managed to palm one away the people would be far more than Scottish Cup Champions, they would be looking forward to a Super Cup vs Real Madrid, pot one in the Champions League and a small fortune to go with it.
Instead the omnipresent Newco defender Connor Goldson is to make good on his threat to walk unless he gets a pay day in line with the best on earth, no not Messi, the Scouser who arrived on a Bosman.
Lundstram is on a cool £45,000 a week with Connor only asking for the board to meet his value, instead they have waited out to see if no one will sign him as a free agent.
With him being a free agent who just played in a Europa League final of course there are clubs keen on bringing him in, I am surprised Balogun isn’t receiving the same attention.
His contract also expires today, a team could sign a Europa League Centre half partnership for free.
Regardless, Nottingham Forrest are looking likely to make a swoop for Goldson when he becomes a free agent in the morning.
As reported in The Sun:
We revealed in January that Forest boss Steve Cooper is a huge fan of Goldson, who made 61 appearances and scored four goals for Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s team this season.
Rangers haven’t given up hope of convincing the stopper to extend his four-year stay in Glasgow, but the Dutch boss admitted earlier this month that there was only a ‘small chance’ Goldson would stay in Scotland.
Now City Ground boss Cooper hopes the lure of featuring in the English top flight, which could earn the club £200million, will convince the Gers hero to head back south.
Here are the rags carrying the story.
The exodus wee Barry spoke of has begun.
