No Rangers Move for Andy Todd - Yet!

No Rangers Move for Andy Todd - Yet!

More speculation about Andy Todd's Blackburn Rovers future has come about today with former Scottish giants Glasgow Rangers being linked, a link which is being played down.

Some reports coming out of Scotland today have been claiming Rangers could be about to make a £1 million move to take Todd to the Scottish Premier League but his agent Peter Harrison, despite admitting a move to Rangers could appeal to Todd has said no approach has yet been made:

"At the moment Andy is a Blackburn player.

"He has forced his way back into the team following injury and suspension. I am unaware of any approach from Rangers.

"He only has one year left on his contract and obviously he wants to know what the future holds for him and whether the manager sees him in his long-term plans.

"Obviously Rangers are a massive club and I'm sure that Andy would be interested if they did make an approach for him."

Toddy is not the player he was and will almost certainly be leaving Ewood Park in the summer whatever happens but keeping him here until then would be fine with me. Anything between £1 and £2 million would probably tempt Mark Hughes into selling though as Toddy doesn't have a long term future under Sparky.

Without wishing to be cruel to Toddy or Rangers but being linked with a player such as Toddy does show just how far the fall from grace of the former giants of Scottish football has been…

I often find it hard to believe much that comes out of Harrison's mouth! I'd like Toddy to stay in until the summer but should Rangers, Wigan, Charlton, Bolton, Portsmouth, Sheffield United and all the Championship sides said to be in for Toddy make a move of £1-£2 million I think this will be accepted as we probably have enough (even as it is (without the Admiral) arguably) to cover his loss?

I have never been a big fan of Toddy's, I think he is a good footballing centre-back, he's strong but too often he has lapses of concentration and loses his man - against a striker who has movement he struggles. Other than that he is a good defender. I say keep him until the Summer no matter what.

Definitely needed until the summer. Unless someone with great talent comes on the market within the next month, we won't have enough cover.

Needed until the summer unless a decent money bid comes in. He won't like sitting on the bench which lets face it he will when others are fit. He's been really good since he returned but as Wellsy says when someone really tests him he often gets found out.

I would say sell if the opportunity arises. That money could be used for the acquisition of a new player with a future at the club. The bloke is on his last legs and doesn't provide us with anything more than last resort cover.

It all depends on the money being offered for Todd, I agree that I dont believe he his temperment is good enough for a regular in the 1st team, although he is an honest centreback and is very good cover and it would benifit the club to keep him till summer. However he will not settle for this but unless the club gets enough money to get in a suitable replacement then the club should keep a hold of him until July. It needs to be seen how Nelsen comes back into the team and his fitness levels b4 anyone can be let go
