Blackburn have rejected the first approach from Rangers for Barry Ferguson - but the Glasgow giants are unlikely to take 'no' for an answer. Scotland captain Ferguson joined Blackburn 17 months ago for 6.5m from Rangers, and speculation has long been rife the Ibrox club have been preparing to lure him back.

the player himself has supposivley said he wants to leave blackburn and sign back to rangers, and stay there for life. am not sure if it was a 3 million bid that was launched. i cant see them being able to splash out the 6.5 million they sold him for. the boumsong would have got them 8 million, but then there agent, the player himself. and the bought buffel for about 2 million. not sure they can affored the full price so it looks like he will have to slap in a request to create any sort of hope.

i think this is the papers talking more than the actual peopel involved lol

It does seem like ferguson is homesick and would welcome a move back to Rangers. Seems like they might just be testing the water...

yer, i think at rangers, he was the main man there for them, challenging and winning things at times, but at blackburn, its more the opposite. with souness leaving too, maybe that was one of the main reasons for going there.

the question that will arise is, if he goes back, why did rangers sell him in the first place lol

Rangers have declared they are not prepared to increase their 3million bid to re-sign Blackburn midfielder Barry Ferguson.The Scotland international, who left Ibrox for the Premiership club in a 6.5million deal 18 months ago, is understood to be keen to move back to Scotland and revive his Rangers career.

He and agent John Viola informed Rovers of that earlier in the week and yesterday Rangers made their bid in the knowledge that Blackburn still owe them £2.5million for Ferguson. Rovers rejected it, with chief executyve John Williams insisting the player was not for sale. However, Rangers chairman David Murray has made it clear that the player himself must negotiate his exit - or risk missing out on the move he craves.

yup.. i read this one in the paper, i didnt know blackburn still owed 2.5 million to rangers. but a offer of 3 million. blackburn are losing out on just over 3 million that way so its hard to say if they can afford to lose that sorta money on deal. but then again, it looks like they are crying out for defenders so they might take it.

Barry Ferguson's agent John Viola has confirmed to skysports.com that the player has handed in a transfer request.

The Blackburn skipper made the move to hand in a transfer request on Tuesday morning.

hughes admits barry wants to go


Blackburn Rovers manager Mark Hughes has confirmed that Barry Ferguson has his heart set on a move to Rangers.

Rovers are considering Ferguson's transfer request over the next couple of days, even though Hughes wants to pair his captain with new signing Robbie Savage in the midfield engine room.

Although some reports have suggested Newcastle United could be keen on the Scotland international, particularly in the light of Nicky Butt's injury setback, the former Gers skipper seems determined to return to Ibrox.

Blackburn have given Barry Ferguson the go-ahead to leave Ewood Park if Rangers double their offer to 6million - but also claimed there is still "a country mile" between the two clubs' valuations of the Scotland captain. Rovers have agreed to Ferguson's transfer request but insist they will keep the midfielder if their fee demands are not met.

The Glasgow club have already had one 3million offer for Ferguson rejected by Blackburn, who bought him from Rangers 18 months ago for 6.5million when Graeme Souness was manager.

if they want that ammount, i dont know where they get the money from, i think if it happens, a deal will be struck just less than that ammount.

if they buy him, and then dont win the league, well. they will be in trouble

Blackburn have rejected a second bid from Rangers for midfielder Barry Ferguson leading the SPL giants to drop their interest in the player. The Scotland international submitted a transfer request earlier in the week that Rovers reluctantly accepted. That seemed set to pave the way for a move back to Ibrox for Ferguson, but the The Gers' improved offer has failed to meet with Blackburn's satisfaction.

well. its happened and hes back at rangers. not sure how much it cost


Barry Ferguson has finally completed his move back to Rangers.

The Blackburn Rovers skipper asked for a transfer earlier this month after The Gers revealed their interest in luring him back to Ibrox.

Ferguson moved to Blackburn in the summer of 2003 for £7.5 million, but the Scottish star has never really settled in Lancashire.

hughes is a bit disapotined with this


Blackburn boss Mark Hughes concedes that player power led to Barry Ferguson's move to Rangers.

Hughes was reluctant to allow the tenacious midfielder to quit Lancashire to return to his homeland but has now claimed that the player's attitude forced the issue.

Ferguson made no secret of his desire to return to Ibrox and now Hughes has revealed that the player asked not be selected for first team action.
