 Matthew Shiels

Rangers twitter account linking us with a loan deal for Shiels, a young left back. The same account posted in the same tweet about Stephen Kelly to Ayr which has just been announced so potentially credible source. At 18 (19 in September) and very little game time at any level I don’t see him as anything more than a back up option.

Heard this one at the weekend too. Expected to kick on at the Rangers last season but injuries got in way.

We definitely need fullback cover imo, so if he challenges Martin I'm in favour of that. Another out and out winger is also required but it might be another week or two until anything happens on that front

he was a forward, possibly a winger before being converted to left back, maybe they are looking at him covering both roles here if he joins.

whether its Shiels or someone else as the next signing, I cant see anyone else coming in unless someone goes first.

Two will go out on loan.

We desperately need an experienced player in, preferably a CM and a winger.

From what I have read he is highly rated at Rangers and has signed a deal to remain until 2021. Started as a striker and reverted to LB under Murty. Rangers have probably 3 players in front of him at LB so going out on loan to a championship club would make sense as tbe next stage in his development.

We still have 3 loan spots to fill if i’m not mistaken so if we were to get Shiels i presume Rangers will pay most if not all of his wage. Don’t think that means anyone has to leave
