According to local news, it would appear that Hearts signing target Gavin Rae is likely to be heading for the English Championship and Norwich City.

Rangers midfielder Rae, along with former Rangers and current Leicester City player Stephen Hughes, were both revealed to be on Hearts’ potential wanted list for this summer, but in Rae’s case it would now appear to be a busted flush.

All I can say if this turns out to be true is: good! This is not the sort of signing that’s going to get Hearts into the challenging position that we want them to be in and frankly, the lower echelons of the English Championship is more Rae’s level.

Let’s hope that we see some genuine quality being linked with the club in the coming weeks…..

  • to be honest you talk about the “lower echelons” of the english championship as if you’re above it! I’d love you to have a season in the championship and review what level you think your club is at afterwards!

  • Apologies if you felt I was being condescending mate! My own view is that the Championship’s standard is poor though and generally of a worst standard than the SPL. I do attend a fair number of games in both leagues so that’s where I form my opinion from. Not meaning to be disrespectful, just my view that the league is not the greatest standard in the world. Very competitive though.

  • The Glasgow clubs aside, the majority of SPL clubs would struggle to compete in the Championship, maybe with the exception of Aberdeen and the Jambos, some of them would struggle in league 2!!!!
