Its Official Burnley accept Rangers Bid!

Its Official Burnley accept Rangers Bid!

The Clarets have today agreed a player/cash-deal with Rangers for striker Kyle Lafferty ending a long saga of speculation about the future of the Northern Ireland International.

Burnley have formally agreed a £3m fee for the Northern Ireland striker, with a further £250,000 payable on appearances and a sell-on clause that includes 10% of any future profit. Alan Gow will hopefully be coming the other way as part of the deal.



Rangers have therefore won the battle over Old Firm rival,Celtic and Championship side,Wolves to sign the player although both deals are now subject to the players agreeing personal terms with their respective new clubs

The Clarets will now speak with 25-year-old Rangers midfielder Alan Gow to hopefully agree terms and complete the deal.

Owen Coyle speaking to the Official Burnley FC site confirmed the situation:

'We have received a very good offer from Rangers - a deal worth close to £4m when you include Alan (Gow), who has been offered to us in return as part of the package.

'Ultimately, from the fans point of view, Kyle wanted to leave the club after saying he felt it was time to move on.

'Providing the deal is concluded we wish him well, but ultimately we want players who are fully committed to Burnley Football Club'

Well said, Owen and let's hope this is the end of the matter and we can move on and spend some of this money to secure our targets.

I think Gow will be the only thing that isn't 100% nailed on in this deal. He could be the spanner in the works.

well hopefully not as i would much rather see lafferty in scotland rather than at wolves where he will come back and score a hatrick against us.

I agree about Gow, but hope he comes and from what I hear would be an excellent addition to the team. If he does not, then maybe Rangers will have to pay an extra £500k up front or try to off-load another player. Boyd will be leaving Ibrox soon judging by the strikers they are buying. I'd take him :-)

SkySports said that he is interested to talk to Burnley (Gow), and I understand he is in Burnley either this afternoon or tomorrow morning.

An advantage could be that Coyle & Gow know each other from their playing days at Airdrie but if this falls through I will begin to think we really are fated or at worst incompetent!

@roadrunner. are you on glue?? look how relieved all these burnley fans are at getting rid of the guy and how startled they are to actually get 3m for him. if you think that this is getting one over us then you my friend are totally detatched from reality. there's not a single celtic fan who'll be losing a second of sleep over this and conversely many will be raising a glass in celebration of the news that the dimwits from govan have been naive enough to spend so much of their(word used in it's proper context, check how you used it) scarce funds on a guy who has scored 10 in 3 years. however, his signing may serve to make kenny miller look like a much loved world beater. miller, velicka and laugherty, happy days, eh?

right phil, just to make the humiliation of my blue nosed countrymen complete, how's about you give us 1m of that cash for riordan? and if you wouldn't mind allowing david murray to witness his cash being used to commit suicide by proxy we at celtic would be eternally grateful
