It's not nice but it's sensible. I must admit that I don't know much about football north of the border - other than it is crap - but it's hard to imagine that Rangers players can't do a job in the Championship and that their players won't command a fee if a club sells them on having signed them up on a contract.
Is rumoured target Celik any good? He sounds like a salad vegetable but he is a winger, and any option to Faubert has to be interesting. Mind you, he is only 5' 9" tall so Allardyce might say he would have signed Snow White if he wanted the seven dwarfs!
He's also only 21 and a Swedish U21 and U19 international, suggesting he is one for the future. On a free, he must be worth a punt surely?
And we are also being linked with Leicester's Matt Mills who was signed for over £5m in the summer and is now, apparently, available on loan. Again this sounds like good business, although with Taylor able to cover at left back and Reid and McCartney therefore options to replace Tomkins and Faye, I'm not convinced we need him. But safety first is sensible and if Sullivan and Gold are happy to splash more of their cash on salaries, who are we to complain?
But where's the logic in Leicester lending Mills to us? It suggests they have given up all hope of catching us and, perhaps, hope that by strengthening us, ensure we take maximum points off of play off rivals.
