Zen and the diffcult art of buying players when you’re skint

Don’t be surprised if Jamie Murphy is loaned to Sevco by his parent club.

I’m afraid that trying to buy players when you can’t put any money down is rather difficult.

Promising to pay the first tranche of the transfer fee when the season ticket monies arrived probably didn’t impress the folk at Brighton.

Of course, the stenographers played their part in the gushing headline that “Rangers splashed the cash” for Murphy.

Actually, the basket of assets do not have any money to spend on any player at the moment.

Moreover, the loan deal for Sean Goss from QPR is much more redolent of their current financial state.

Players will also have to be sold by Sevco in this window.

However, that will be for simple survival.

They remain a loss-making business without a credit line from a bank.
