Rangers tipped to cash in on several key players by ex-Gers star
Ex-Rangers defender Richard Foster has conceded that the club’s failure in the Champions League qualifiers could force the Gers to sell some of their best players in August.
Rangers crashed out of the UEFA Champions League in their third round qualifier to ten-man Malmo at home on Tuesday night.
The side were looking forward to the cash boost that would have come had they made it to the group stage of the UCL.
And Richard feels that now it could have heavy consequences on the Rangers roster as they might be forced to sell multiple best players to balance their books.
He said on BBC Radio Scotland: “This is going to have huge financial implications for Rangers. They need to sell players. Losing their biggest assets will weaken them dramatically.”

Rangers have entered the fray for Thomas Henry this summer’s transfer market, According to Football Insider.
The club were magnificent last season as they won the Premiership for the first time in ten seasons, but they haven’t started well this campaign.
The Gers have managed just one win in their first three games, losing the other two, so perhaps another marksman is exactly what they need, with the Columbia international Alfredo Morelos of course continually linked with transfers away.
As per this latest report, Steven Gerrard‘s side are interested in landing Henry this summer. They are one of a host of clubs eyeing the 26-year-old star. Other possible suitors include Swansea City, Watford, Southampton, Bordeaux, Venezia and Gent.

Rangers could part company with Borna Barisic after getting knocked out of the UCL qualifiers, claims Gabriel Antoniazzi.
Gabriel, who is a presenter and journalist of PLZ Soccer’s The Football Show, thinks that Roma still hold interest and Borna could be one of the stars the defending Scottish champions will sell in the coming days.
“A nearly £40million windfall has slipped through their [Rangers] fingers. The club could sell one of their prized assets to make up the difference,” the Italian said.
“Borna Barisic has been linked with a move to Roma over the last 12 months and aged 28, the Gers may look to sell the Croatian for a profit having bought up for £2million three years ago.”
