When it comes to European football the Scottish game is but a minnow swimming with sharks and it shows when it comes to finance. Back when we signed Colin Stein for £100,000 in 1968 it was one the biggest fees paid in Britain at that time......but remember that was before the advent of huge sponsorship deals and cable and satellite tv involvement. Personally I feel we went through a false transfer fee period for years with some of the money being spent after David Murray arrived but due to Scotland still being looked upon as a footballing backwater we were never going to get the financial rewards that England, Germany, Italy, Spain did and still does. It's not just us that has to rely on loan players...it's every team up here....it's the new normal. Celtic have benefited from Champions League money due to us being dropped into the bottom leagues so basically they have had a huge start on us but even they have had to bring in loan players. Apart from the odd signing Ryan Kent eg, I don't think we'll see large transfer fees being forked out for a very long time if at all.....We have jumped into McFly's time machine in a footballing sense and as far as Rangers are concerned it's not a bad thing for the time being.
