After failing in a January move for Rangers player Jack Butland, Nottingham Forest immediately started playing with new

custodian Matz Sels.

The Premier League team focused on £6 million acquisition Sels, who was captaining Strasbourg, a Ligue 1 team, before to the transfer.

Five minutes after making his debut against Bournemouth, Nottingham Forest’s Justin Kluivert defeated him.

Calum Hudson-Odoi then tied the score at one.

However, it’s interesting to remember that Jack Butland stayed at Rangers after years of waiting for his Premier League

opportunity, as Matz Sels takes over as Nottingham Forest’s top player right away.

Jack Butland misses Nottingham Forest chance

Whilst there’s been no suggestion that the England Euro 2024 hopeful wanted to move back down south, Jack Butland has

spent the last few seasons propping up Premier League benches.

Having played second fiddle to a number of goalkeepers at Crystal Palace, Butland never played a game whilst out on loan at

boyhood club Manchester United last season.

In fact, you’d have to go back to the 19/20 season to when the now Rangers goalkeeper played a full season as a number one,

turning out in the Championship with Stoke City.

You have to go back six years ago to the 17/18 season to see Jack Butland turn out as a number one in the Premier League,

again wearing the red and white of the Potters.

The custodian, who is currently reestablishing his career at Ibrox, was not offered a Premier League opportunity until he

relocated to Scotland, therefore our gain from England’s loss is undeniable.

Clement talks Rangers transfer bid

Rangers manager Philippe Clement was speaking about potential Nottingham Forest interest in Jack Butland over the weekend.

Claiming that any offer made for the goalkeeper didn’t land on his desk, the Rangers boss revealed that Butland wasn’t the

only of his players who attracted interest in January.

“Nobody called me,” said Clement. “But they don’t call me about these things.

“It’s not important, another positive point is that in January in general there were players who could go somewhere else and

make a new step to interesting competitions and teams but they wanted to stay.

Consequently, I believe there has been a significant change since their desire to depart three months ago.

They think they are part of a great story and have something unique to do with each other.

That being said, I am also rather pleased with this January. Players occasionally make up every emotional justification for wanting to go.

“It was the opposite, as the players expressed their desire to remain at Rangers despite receiving a few offers.”

This season, Jack Butland has made 37 appearances for Rangers, giving up 28 goals and maintaining 19 clean sheets.
