Rangers fans have taken to Twitter to react after the Daily Record revealed that Watford had made a £2m bid for Borna Barisic.
What’s the story?
Well, as one fan below wrote, this is just insulting from Watford.
The Premier League outfit unsurprisingly saw their offer rejected by the Gers, who are hoping to receive £5m for Barisic.
Watford returned to Ibrox with an improved offer, which included a further £1.5m to be paid in bonuses.
However, Rangers dismissed that bid as well.
The £16m sale of Nathan Patterson to Everton – a club-record departure – means Giovanni van Bronckhorst is under no pressure to sell.
In fact, it is expected that the Dutchman will be allowed to spend a portion of that £16m on new signings this month, according to the Daily Record.
Rangers should be insulted by Borna Barisic bid
Back in August 2018, Rangers signed Barisic from Osijek for £2m.
Barisic has also proven himself to be a competent performer in the Europa League.
Despite all the 29-year-old has achieved, and he fact he has a contract until June 2024, Watford still believe he’s worth what Rangers paid years ago.
In our view, that doesn’t make sense.
In fact, Barisic is arguably worth more than the £5m valuation Rangers have placed on him.
Quite frankly, Rangers should’ve put the phone down as soon as the Hornets made their offer.
For now, let’s see what the Rangers fans on Twitter have been saying about the rumour coming from the Premier League…
If Watford have genuinely had the brass neck to send an official offer of £2m for Barisic then they should be docked 5 points and restored to a relegation position.

We should genuinely put a wee cheeky bid of 1m plus Brandon barker for Sarr.

Croatian international left back. Probably at his peak. Got to laugh.

Ross Wilson getting the board in the room to listen to that, then the full group laughing down the phone to them, should be the only response if that is true.
