Rumour Mill-YAWN Rangers are back in for Laffs!

Rangers have made a second offer for Burnley striker Kyle Lafferty according to BBC Sport but this time it appears to be a straight cash offer in excess of 3million without the inclusion of midfielder, Alan Gow.The last Rangers bid two weeks ago was reported to be for 2.5 million plus Gow.

Rangers have since signed Kenny Miller and Andrius Velicka within the last few days, but Rangers gaffer, Walter Smith still seems to want to make Lafferty his third signing this summer.

Last week, Celtic had a bid for 2.75m plus Derek Riordan turned down by the Clarets with Wolves also interested in the 20 year old Northern Ireland international.

Wolves are reported to have bid between 2.25-2.5 million in a player-cash deal involving both Stephen Elliott and fellow Republic of Ireland International,Darren Potter.

In the mean time Owen Coyle has been adamant that recent deals have been falling short of their evaluation of 4 million for the player.

Coyle a few days ago said nothing will be done until an improved offer is made.

"All the bids have fallen short and that`s where we stand," Coyle is quoted as saying in the Daily Express.

"There is nothing to talk about unless someone comes back with an improved offer."

So is the Rangers bid any better? Personally in my opinion, I dont give a monkey's I just want shut of him and to see an end to this sorry saga.

A Player/Cash Deal would be better and so far I think the Celtic offer plus Riordan, a player Coyle admires and wants is the best bet.

If Celtic offer an extra 250k that could be enough to tempt the Clarets, I hope they do!

Sorry chaps, just being the responsible Editor keeping you informed even though most of us are sick to death of it all and want it brought to a swift conclusion! I will be furious if we lose out on Riordan now

The Rangers deal looks the worst one on the table. You would be better going for the Celtic deal as you don't really want him going to Wolves a championship rival.

UPDATE: Radio Clyde in Scotland claims that Burnley's Kyle Lafferty has signed for SPL giants Glasgow Rangers in a deal that could be worth up to 4Million. The deal will see the Turf Moor club recieve 3Million upfront with a further 500k based on appearances. The deal also includes midfielder Alan Gow.
