Raith Rovers in talks to extend Barrie McKay’s loan

Craig Smith of The Courier is reporting that Raith Rovers  have begun talks with Rangers in an effort to extend Barrie McKay’s stay with the club.  The loan is due to end at the end of the month but Smith confirms that Rovers would like to keep McKay beyond that.

McKay has been Raith Rovers best player of late & has repeatedly made it clear that he wants first team football – whether it be with Raith Rovers or with Rangers.  He recently said, “I’ve enjoyed my time here but I don’t know as yet whether I’ll be staying here or going back to Rangers.  Wherever I am, I’m happy as long as I’m playing on a regular basis.”

McKay has been starring against the same competition that most of Rangers squad has been struggling against – & seemingly with a inferior supporting cast.  However, he may not be a favorite of manager Kenny McDowall who has been staunch in his consistency with the keeping Ally McCoist’s managerial ideals at the fore of running the club.  McKay clearly had little chance of seeing the pitch under McCoist’s leadership – will it be the same with McDowall?

  1. Because. year I watched a fairly similar group toil for 70 minutes against Berwick until Barrie came on and within 5 minutes we were through to the next round. Okay wingers such as Mackay and templeton aren’t the most consistent of players but at least when they’re on the field there is the potential. Having said that Laudrup and Cooper would struggle with the current first team squad


  2. Just after I wrote this I learned we have extended Barrie and Lucas loans .Unbelievable,,,,, meet the new boss, same as the old boss. Pathetic, short sighted management, Gasparottos contract is up at the end of the season and will likely leave unless a new manager can talk him into staying.
