According to Alan Nixon, Jack Butland broke his finger playing for Crystal Palace yesterday, which is bad news for Rangers.

What’s the story?

Well, it was said that Giovanni van Bronckhorst was hoping to bring the £1m glovesman to Ibrox this summer, after the south Londoners signed Sam Johnstone.

However, any hope Butland had of a move away from Selhurst Park now seems likely to be scuppered by his finger injury.

Nixon believes the England international has broken a finger on his right hand, after making an impressive save in a friendly against Manchester United on Tuesday afternoon.

Butland looks set to be sidelined for two months as a result, with the news also coming as a blow to Birmingham as well as Rangers.

Nixon believes the 29-year-old had been given permission to leave by Crystal Palace, and Birmingham were hoping to bring him back to St Andrew’s this summer.

Butland made 15 appearances in all competitions for the Eagles last season, and was even trusted to start the FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea.

Rangers could still sign Jack Butland

It would be a risky move, but in our view, Rangers could still take a gamble on Butland.

The Bristol-born goalkeeper won’t be able to do any further pre-season preparation, while he will also miss the start of the 2022/23 campaign, but if Van Bronckhorst is happy to be patient, a move could still happen.

Of course, Butland also wouldn’t be able to properly undergo a medical while his finger is broken, but seeing as he suffered no injuries last season, it may be safe to assume his fitness is fine, with the exception of this freak injury.

In our view, a season-long loan move would be the most sensible option, with a termination clause in January in case the £35,000-a-week man fails to recover from his broken finger at the expected rate.
