Gow Confusion as Agent says No Deal

Gow Confusion as Agent says No Deal

Burnley FC announced only a few hours ago that they would give Rangers midfielder, Alan Gow one week to decide if he wanted to come to Turf Moor.

We seem to have got our answer rather early

According to the Daily Record today, Rangers midfielder Alan Gow has rejected the chance to play for the Clarets electing instead to fight for his place at Ibrox after only two first-team starts last season.

Who says so? His agent, Phil McTaggart

Despite hours of long negotiations yesterday, Gow's representative has now admitted that a deal could not be found that would convince Gow to sign for Burnley FC.

McTaggart said:

'Alan will be back at Rangers next season and will report for pre-season training next Wednesday to try and force his way into Walter Smith's plans.

'There has been a great deal of talk about Alan leaving but he's opted to remain where he is and prove himself after a disappointing first season at the club.

'He had two years left on his contract and has the belief he can still be a success as a Rangers player.'

More from his agent below, after all this I LOVE RANGERS stuff he better not sign for Preston! McTaggart said: "Alan has never wanted to leave Rangers and, all along, he has been determined to report back for pre-season and do everything he can to force his way back into the first-team picture. "Alan supported Rangers as a kid and it has taken him his whole career to get to Ibrox and he never wanted to walk away without giving it another shot. "Alan was flattered by the interest shown in him by Burnley and Owen Coyle and he had to think long and hard about remaining at Rangers. "But Alan believes that if he had gone then he would have been left thinking what if' for the rest of his career. "I believe that, if anything, the interest shown by Burnley and the hunger of Owen Coyle to take him to Turf Moor has given Alan's confidence a boost after what has been a very frustrating season for him. "Now all his focus is on reporting back for pre-season at Rangers next Wednesday [Edited by turfmanphil]
