Burnley X-Files: No Laffs for Kyle!

Burnley X-Files: No Laffs for Kyle!

Rangers striker, Kyle Lafferty along with Steve Davis, Stevie Naismith, Steven Whittaker and Carlos Bocanegra are giving serious consideration to walking away from the financially striken club this week.Sone Aluko and Rhys McCabe have already decided to leave making seven players in all who could desert the Glasgow 'Old Firm' club.

This would plunge Rangers into even more difficulty since they would not get a penny should any of the players refuse to sign new contracts and leave the club.

The players have been advised by employment lawyers that they are within their rights to quit since their contracts cannot be transferred to a new company.

However newco owner Charles Green disputes this and several court cases could now be required to sort out the legalities.

All the players have been told to inform the club by Wednesday this week via a legal letter if they do not want to be part of the newco or to be paid their current salaries.

The wages are due to arrive in the players accounts at midnight that day and Green has stated that he would pay them in full.

Many players though have been advised to take the exit route and it looks like they plan to do so which leave Charles Green financially hit for six with Rangers gaffer, Ally McCoist struggling to put out a decent team for the new SPL season ahead. If the rumours are true though McQuoist might not be too fussed about losing Lafferty following media reports the two had fallen out!

If Lefferty did leave what interest would there be in him? I doubt many would want him back in a Clarets shirt although it does look possible he could be playing against us in the Championship next season with Leicester reportedly interested in signing the 24 year old Northern Ireland international.

Lafferty signed for Rangers in June 2008. A player-cash deal of £3 million plus Alan Gow was originally negotiated but Gow pulled out and in the end Lafferty left Turf Moor under a cloud after effectively dissing the club annoying many Clarets fans in the process.

I didn't rate him when he played for us and thought we got a very good deal when he left. Happy to leave it at that too.

Based on nothing other than improving the experience in the quad I would have Lafferty back and Chaplow, however I am on medication at the moment (just had spinal surgery) and could change my mind when I come off it!

Kyle Lafferty now signed for Swiss club FC Sion after refusing to have his registration transferred to the new Rangers group. Three year costly deal by all accounts
