Seems Bolton Wanderers can’t go a couple of days without a player being linked with a move away these days.

This time, it’s the turn of Northern Ireland hero, Josh Magennis.

According to The Belfast telegraph, Magennis is wanted by Steven Gerrard’s Rangers FC.

They state:

”Northern Ireland goal hero Josh Magennis could be set for a sensational summer move to Rangers.

International chief Michael O’Neill currently has four players on the books at Ibrox - Steven Davis, Jordan Jones, Kyle Lafferty and Gareth McAuley - and the Belfast Telegraph understands the Light Blues are in talks with Magennis’ representatives.

Magennis, who scored the winner for Northern Ireland against Estonia in Tallinn last Saturday night, is currently in limbo with his club Bolton Wanderers.

The Bangor lad has one year left on his contract after signing from Charlton Athletic last year for £400,000.

But with Bolton entering into administration following financial issues and the Lancashire club relegated from the Championship, Magennis may be sold or simply allowed to leave on a free transfer to help balance the books at the cash-strapped club.”

Like I mentioned in the previous article, this Bolton team is looking very likely to be vastly different to last season.
