Breaking: Hearts Goal machine open up big decision on joining Scottish Giant club

Prior to the summer transfer window, Lawrence Shankland has drawn a lot of interest. His contract expires in 2025.
The biggest players in the Scottish Premiership are the subject of intense speculation as the summer transfer window opens in one month. With an incredible 24 goals in 37 games to end the 2023–24 season as the league’s top scorer, it should come as no surprise that Lawrence Shankland is at the center of a lot of transfer rumors.

As the last 12 months of his contract draw near, the Hearts captain is starting to draw more attention than he has in previous months. Shankland has been linked to a cross-border move to the Premier League because of his incredible form, although both Celtic and Rangers have apparently expressed interest in him recently.

Although any of the Glasgow titans would benefit greatly from having Shankland join their ranks, former Scotland international Frank McAvennie thinks Philippe Clement’s team will be priced out of a possible summer deal.

The former striker and current pundit, in an interview with Football Insider, stated that Rangers will, for the time being, focus on loan possibilities and free transfers rather than being able to spend big money on a marquee acquisition like Shankland. The publication first stated in March that the Scottish record transfer fee would be required by the Gers to entice the 28-year-old to leave Hearts. At £4.4 million, the record signing is currently in place.

 

McAvennie remarked, “I don’t know where they’re getting their money from, because I’ve heard that they really don’t have much.” “Unless they make it through the qualifying round and into the Champions League, I believe they’ll be pursuing free agents and loans.” If they decide to spend money before taking a chance

Although Shankland will cost £5 million, I believe they want to sign him. They don’t have that type of money, so he isn’t going there. Money is the main concern. Saying, “We’re going to do this,” is fine, but that’s reserved for the supporters. They don’t seem to have the funds to pursue their goals.

Despite a thrilling battle with Celtic towards the conclusion of the season, Rangers narrowly missed winning the Scottish Premiership this year. Rangers squandered vital points against Motherwell, Ross County, and Dundee in the closing run of games, but the Hoops pulled away and finished eight points clear at the top despite the game being too close to call at one stage.

 

In the season-ending match, Hearts put insult to injury for Clement and company as the Jambos held them to a 3-3 draw. In Tynecastle, Shankland naturally put himself on the scoresheet to avenge their earlier season losses to the Light Blues.
