Beale played a rare blinder on “phenomenal” Rangers signing who’s been touted at £20m – opinion

The sublime summer signing has emerged as a key performer for the Light Blues.

Former Glasgow Rangers manager Michael Beale did not had the greatest of times in control of the club before leaving in October of last year.

In just over 10 months at Ibrox, the former Gers assistant failed to win a single trophy before being fired and replaced by Philippe Clement earlier this season.

were already transferred to FC Utrecht and Cruzerio, respectively,

last month. Meanwhile, Kieran Dowell, a former Norwich City player,

has only appeared in seven Scottish Premiership games since his transfer.

Beale did, however, pull off a rare coup by securing Jack Butland on a free transfer from Premier League club Crystal Palace for the 2023/24 season.

Jack Butland’s market value last summer
The former England international was theoretically valued at £0 last summer when the Eagles decided to release him for free at the end of the season.

This allowed Beale and the Gers to sign him for free after he spent the second half of last season on loan as a backup with Manchester United.

Butland did not make a single appearance for the Red Devils and did not play any games for his parent club in the first half of the season.

Rangers took a risk by signing a 30-year-old player who has not kicked (saved) a ball in anger in more than a year,

but it has paid off handsomely for the Scottish club.

Jack Butland’s current value
Former Rangers star Derek Ferguson described Butland as “phenomenal” in an interview with IbroxNews earlier this month,

stating that it would cost roughly £20 million for the club to consider selling him.
That happened shortly after the Light Blues reportedly turned off an approach from Premier League club Nottingham Forest during the January transfer window.

Interestingly, Stoke City rated the 30-year-old monster at a whopping £30 million in 2019, and the reported £20 million worth shows that the colossus is returning to form.
