Rangers latest bid for Goodwillie rejected by United


Despite Rangers reportedly matching Blackburn Rovers’ bid for Dundee United striker David Goodwillie, the Tannadice side have once more rejected Rangers’ advances for the Scotland international.

With the striker undergoing a medical at Ewood Park, Rangers had tried to hijack his proposed move to the Premier League outfit.

McCoist said: “As far as I’m aware, yes. Unfortunately I can’t give you a lot of information, other than we have put in a new bid to Dundee United. We just have to wait and see in the next couple of hours what happens.

“We’ve all made no secret of the fact that David is a player we would love to see at Rangers. We believe that we have put a bid in that’s more than acceptable.”

Blackburn had their improved bid of £2 million up front with a potential £800,000 for add-ons plus a sell-on clause accepted, but despite reportedly matching the English Premier League side’s bid, Rangers’ SIXTH & SEVENTH bid for the striker have been rejected this afternoon.

It is now almost certain that Blackburn will sign the 22-year-old this afternoon after he passed a medical, with terms being agreed but the deal has not been completed yet.

Meanwhile Rangers have taken former Arsenal striker Rhys Murphy on trial, although Championship outfit Middlesborough are also in the frame for the striker’s signature.
