Latics with Watching Eye on Rangers
With Rangers rumoured to be in financial difficulty, Latics are keeping a watching brief should the Glasgow giants decide to list their entire squad in January.
Gers boss Walter Smith is threatening to quit the cash strapped club amid rumours and reports that Lloyds Bank is trying to force the clubs CEO Martin Bain to stand down and with Scottish Secretary Jim Murphy contacting Lloyds to discuss the financial crisis at Ibrox situation doesn`t look too good.
Two players believed to be on the wanted list are striker Kris Boyd who Latics tried to sign in the summer and attacking midfielder Pedro Mendes who was a success at Portsmouth in the Premier League.
Apparently Martinez was very close to clinching a deal for Boyd on the final day of the last transfer window and he has hinted that he would re-kindle his interest once January arrives, the Scotland international is also in the last 6 months of his contract with Rangers making a deal all the more likely even without the current plight of the club.
