Well I have seen some infomercials in my days in the media pretending to be actual news but this one takes the biscuit.

Kamara, Barasic and Aribo have all been put in the shop front window, more than likely no bids will come in from Slippy, they are just being spoken about to whip up interest.

As reported in The Sun:

RANGERS fear having to fight off January bids for Glen Kamara and Borna Barisic.

SunSport understands Aston Villa are weighing up a move for the Finnish cap, with ex-Gers boss Steven Gerrard keen to be reunited with the 26-year-old midfielder.

The Premiership leaders are desperately hoping their former manager will wait until the summer before making his move.

But Everton, Southampton and Newcastle are also interested in the 40-cap playmaker, which could fast-forward a Villa offer.

Kamara — a £50,000 bargain from Dundee in 2019 — just signed an Ibrox extension until 2025 under Gerrard in September.

And while Rangers may choose to cash in on interest in the close season, they’d prefer to keep him in Glasgow until at least the summer as they try to defend their title.

New boss Gio van Bronckhorst has a six-point lead in the league race with a Uefa jackpot of £40million and direct entry into the group stages of next season’s Champions League on the line.

Villa are also among the clubs chasing in-form midfielder Joe Aribo, but his Africa Cup of Nations call-up for Nigeria makes a January switch unlikely.

It is going to be a very long month, if you can read between the lines, after an undisclosed fee, a quick share issue among themselves and now this article, Ra Peepa need much more than they are letting on.

Lucky for them there is no Fair play regulations in Scotland.
