Frank Boya the free agent who has revealed that he had to reject the chance to join Rangers this summer as the midfield star chose to join Antwerp instead, must have been a big slap in the face for auld Stevie Gerrard.
The 24 year old had a fantastic season last year and many clubs were sniffing about him, Boya revealed that many clubs were impressed with his performances and Rangers were included in the offers that were made but Boya chose to remain in Belgium.
Steven Gerrard seems to be losing his ability to attract first team players to join his revolution as that would make two of his targets openly reject joining him in Glasgow as Kemar Roofe also didn’t want the move to Mordor.
Boya spoke to the media:
The proof that I did well at Mouscron was the amount of offers I received from big clubs. I had no shortage of offers and Rangers and Werder Bremen were the most keen for me to join them.
So leaving Belgium could have been a solution, but I wanted my future to be settled quickly and none of the teams interested have as much ambitions as at Antwerp.
Since the arrival of new Sporting Director Ross Wilson, Gerrard has only managed to sign Hagi (who wasn’t getting a game for Genk) and bit part players Jon McLaughlin and Calvin Bassey to his squad.
And now that makes two of what seems to be Gerrard’s key targets rejecting him, also on the horizon for Sevco is the imminent sale of Morelos and it will be very interesting to see what calibre of player will be signed as his replacement.
