Looks like Aaron won't be staying at Ibrox. His valuation has gone up about £1million since he came to the club on loan (due to the state of the pound), and since Rangers have (to put it mildly) fuck all money we can't really afford the £3.7 to keep him. At least we have him for two years though, its a small comfort even though Walter refuses to fucking play him despite the fact he's been brilliant the few times he's come on. I can see his point in a way, we have him for two years so take the first year to get him used to the club and get him used to Scottish football but now Valencia are saying they might take him back after a year it all just seems a little...eh. He's a good kid we need to fucking play him while we have him (and pray we can keep him).
A friend of mine mentioned last night that if we sell Boyd (worth £4m) then we could buy Aaron (against the fucking point by the way) but that irritated the hell out of me as well. Just because he's playing in the SPL he's only worth £4m (recent events aside which may, although I fucking hope not, have affected this) had he been playing down south since the start of his career he would have been worth so much more; at least £10m (still "small" figures I know compared to what most people are used to hearing).
I guess I'm just really worried about the state of my club just now, financially more than anything (as well as the usual), it seems like everyday there's something else that is getting the alarm bells ringing. That's all non-football staff been made redundant now. Fucking scary to be honest.
Anyway, in better news. Five of our boys have been called up for the Scotland squad.
-McGregor (who I think should be first choice for our number one (I'm not just being biased) because yes, Gordon is good, but McGregor is better just now. Simple as that and he deserves a chance, he's been fucking spectacular for Rangers this season).
-Broadfoot (who I can't help but just go "aww" and I don't know why). He's just...special.
-David Weir (he's 93 now but he can still do it!)
-Barry Ferguson (now, the amount of SHIT in the papers about Fergie these past two days has been disgusting. He was one of the only ones on the park on Sunday who actually looked like he gave a flying fuck about the game (a couple of really daft mistakes aside) yet he's getting slated left, right and center for not being good enough, being a bully and players not playing just because he's on the pitch (what the fuck is that one supposed to mean by the way?) Nonsense. He's the best we've got to lead club and country, hate how every bugger going starts to come out of the woodwork against Barry whenever we lose something).
-Kenny Miller (first choice as a lone striker, which is quite right and although his form hasn't been great this season for Rangers (for whatever reason) he alone has scored at least half of the national goals of the current squad.
(No Boyd obviously as his toys are still firmly outside of the pram on this one)
