Rangers miss out on Craig Conway


Rangers have missed out on their second summer signing target, as former Dundee United midfielder Craig Conway has agreed terms with English Championship side Cardiff City. The Scotland international will travel down to Wales to take a medical and finalise a move to Malky Mackay’s side.

The news of Conway snubbing the chance to move to the SPL Champions comes four days after Israeli striker Tomer Hemed snubbed Rangers for Real Mallorca.

Meanwhile Rangers have enquired about Conway’s former Tannadice team mate David Goodwillie. United chairman Stephen Thompson has slapped a price tag of £2 million on the Scotland striker, who scored 18 goals last season, and is under contract until 2013. Rangers face competition from a number of English sides, who have also enquired about the striker’s availability.

However United manager Peter Houston believes that the player is too expensive for the Ibrox side.

“There haven’t been any bids for him,” Houston said. “What has happened is that Rangers have contacted our chairman, who is on holiday in Florida, and asked our valuation of the player. Our chairman has told Rangers what our valuation of the player is. At the moment I think it’s too expensive for Rangers so we wait and see what happens there. But they haven’t made any bid, they asked the valuation. You really can only talk about it when money is put on the table and, if they do, it’s up to our chairman to decide if it is enough to take Goodwillie to Rangers.”
