It's Still No Gow for Burnley-Deadline to Decide

It's Still No Gow for Burnley-Deadline to Decide

Alan Gow has still not decided whether to join Burnley or not as part of the Lafferty deal keeping both clubs and fans in suspense.

This week's gossip was about claim and counter-claim that he would sign with his agent sounding positive that just a few details had to be ironed out.

'We are still in talks at the moment and nothing has been agreed yet,' said his representative Phil McTaggart.

'Hopefully something will be sorted sooner rather than later for everyone involved.'

'If everything goes right, then Burnley is a great opportunity and Alan knows that.

'It's a good club, with a great manager who knows him inside out, and it could be ideal.

'But the personal terms have to be right.'

However the Daily Record suggests that once again talks have hit the buffers with Gow needing to speak again to Rangers.

They state that Gow will meet Ibrox chief executive Martin Bain to find a solution.Gow is also now supposedly interesting Preston & Ipswich, so that will test whether the problem is Gow's reluctance to play in the Championship or whether it is simply a problem fixing personal terms with Burnley.An interest by Motherwell has been denied but Dundee United boss,Craig Levein is watching with interest with a view to possibly bringing the player in on loan next season.

Since this was reported though, Kyle Lafferty has now officially become a Rangers player and the Burnley FC Official site have announced the following:

"Burnley Football Club has set a deadline of Thursday, June 26 for Alan Gow to join the club. Should Gow, 25 fail to agree to the move by the deadline, an agreement has been reached with Rangers to pay Burnley an additional fee for Northern Ireland striker Lafferty, who tonight officially joined Rangers for £3.25m"

So again the saga continues and it is a question of watch this space. My own personal view is that Gow is not really that keen to come to Burnley unless he gets the right amount of dosh so it begs the question if he does, will he be that motivated to play for the club? Only time will tell but how much time have we got? Well at least another seven days, oh joy!!

Hmmm - He's hardly a big name at Ibrox and doesn't really get a run out if the regular 22 man squad are all available so where's his problem? Yep, ok I'd hate to be a makeweight in a deal but if there chance for 1st team footie was up for grabs then where's the problem?

Its a classic big fish in small pond vs small fish in big pond scenario and you are right DW, he is going to have to accept its not worked out for him at Rangers (2 matches all season I believe in Rangers colours). Burnley in the Premier League should be in his thoughts and helping us achieve it. Bet its all about salary

Wages were always gonna be a problem , are people aware that Rangers will be paying mid premiership wages , they are a massive club with a huge turnover, we cannot compete with them ! The lad still has a 2yr contract at Ibrox on top money , he never asked for a transfer , so why should he take a big cut in wages , Rangers will have to agree to pay up some of the remainder of his contact before a deal can go through!

Agreed BL although I would hope and think a club like Rangers would have realised that before offering up a player and messing everyone around

They did!! They said at the offset they will make up the shortfall , the lad will have had to agree a wage, length of contact ect at Burnley , which i'd think has been done , now its between him and rangers to agree compensation , it appears he is at Ibrox now , cannot think of any other reason he would be there !

Gow is using his head to get as much out of Gers as possible.
