I’ll buck the trend and say I’m disappointed and alarmed at that Bacuna news. Surely to %^*& this means we are bringing in two attacking players? Maybe Lowry has jumped Bacuna in the pecking order. Either way we need fucking players in urgently now.

This would be fantastic to get him off the books.

Doesn’t threaten first team whatsoever.

We need guys who are bonafide starting players.

I wouldn't be surprised if the likes of Lowry have now jumped ahead of him in the first team squad.
He's had some ok moments, but looks totally unsuited to Scottish football. He's not a player you'd want to see starting at the Piggery or Pittodrie for example.

We weren't even going to start Lowry against Stirling Albion.

He'll be lucky to make 5 apps the rest of the season.

Juninho Bacuna set for Rangers exit as Birmingham City near agreement for Dutch midfielder​

Gio van Bronckhorst is open to allowing Bacuna to return to the English Championship in this window.

Birmingham City are closing in on a deal for Rangers midfielder Juninho Bacuna.

The Blues are keen on giving the Dutchman a return to the English Championship.

Birmingham are unable, as it stands, to cover what Bacuna is on at Rangers but an agreement looks likely to be struck.

The Dutchman moved to Rangers from Huddersfield in August but has struggled for first-team football.

Steven Gerrard signed him but he hasn’t had a lot of game time under his successor, Giovanni van Bronckhorst.

His fellow Dutchman is now set to allow him to leave.

Bacuna netted his only Rangers goal in a win over Ross County in November and has made 12 appearances since being signed by Gerrard.

It would be a return to the second tier of English football for the Curacao internationalist having joined from Huddersfield Town five months ago.
We are extremely short In the middle of the park as it is we shouldn’t be letting anyone go unless we get bodies in.

Tbh mate if it has to be only 2-pages long with legitimate rumours then so be it. In fact that sounds better IMO.

I hate the suggestions because you see a name being discussed, go back 3/4 pages and it was someone saying who they'd like to sign.

Would be good if we had both a suggestions and a rumours thread, separate, to keep them separate. Anyone can suggest anyone but it doesn't really man anything in the grand scheme of things.
They inevitably cross over though mate, as reasonable as that sounds its not actually feasible.

Talking from being on FF for a number of years, I accept the madness and even embrace it- good fun if you take it for what it is.

And the OP does a great job of updating the first post anyway for actual information.

We’re not really short of numbers in midfield (quality is a different argument), even if Bacuna goes. We have Lundstram, Jack, Davis, Aribo, Kamara, Sands and Arfield to cover 3 positions. Lowry looks like he might be an option going forward and hopefully Ofoborh is healthy before the end of the season. That’s 7 established first team players and 2 potential options.

We do need a starting number 8 to replace Arfield in my opinion, particularly as Hagi isn’t an option there now for this season, but that was the case regardless of whether Bacuna was here or not.

What a weird player Bacuna is, he clearly has a lot of talent, but can’t seem to be arsed using it.
Pretty much how I seen it too.

I thought he would be a good back-up to Aribo in the sense he seems quite tricky and a “street” player.

However he just doesn’t have the application or attitude to go with it.

Made some strange decisions in that first half against Stirling and if you compared his attitude to the game to say Sakala, Goldson or Lowry then I think it made Gio’s mind up on him.

Until we hear something it would make more sense that it’s just a case of Sands in Bacuna out.

I know we have tried but we haven’t successfully brought in a right winger or Arfield mould midfielder despite it being a persistent issue for 2/3 seasons.

Would be amazed if we get both out of the blue

People keep saying this. I didn’t see any talent.

We’re overly loyal. Hes just another Grezda, miles away from what we need.
Had one good game against Ross County at home, dissapointed in near enough every other appearance.

Clearly GvB doesn't fancy him

I've still got PTSD of the half time unveil of Bacuna at the Europa League qualifying round :))

Seriously though, happy to see him go, hopefully Simpson and Barker won't be far behind him.
