Sunderland move for Rangers midfielder Rae

tribalfooball.com - August 20, 2006


Sunderland are eyeing Rangers midfielder Gavin Rae.


Niall Quinn, the Wearside club's manager/chairman, is under pressure after seeing his side plummet to the foot of the table after four straight defeats from as many games. He is keen to strengthen his side and Rae is understood to be in his thoughts.


The Scotland international is now completely fit after a succession of knee injuries, but has yet to figure under Paul Le Guen and was on the substitutes' bench again during the 2-0 weekend victory over Hearts.


The 28-year-old, signed by Alex McLeish from Dundee for a cut-price �250,000 three years ago, may be tempted to the Stadium of Light as he seeks first-team football to continue to figure in Walter Smith's international plans.


Quinn would even take the powerful Rae on a season-long loan and Le Guen may give the move the go-ahead. Rae has made only 14 starts during his injury-plagued stay at Ibrox.

Agreed Gribz most of the rumours are tripe but that makes the last two weeks of the transfer window interesting. I love the last few hours before it shuts. January was most disapointing though. Mainly because we lost out on all the players we were supposed to want.
