Levein expects Rangers to continue Lafferty pursuit

first_imgHearts manager Craig Levein has said that he is expecting further Rangers interest in Kyle Lafferty and described Rangers’ opening bid as “disappointing”.The Ibrox club made an offer of £200,000 for the Northern Ireland international and it was quickly rejected by Hearts, who said it was well short of their valuation.Comparisions were made to Rangers’ interest in Jamie Walker last summer, when a series of offers were thrown out and a deal collapsed on deadline day.“The good thing is we only have another month of this nonsense until the transfer window closes,” the Hearts boss said. “I had a long chat with him about his responsibilities as a professional and he was good. He tried like a bear when he came on. He was focused.“My focus was on the team and trying to make sure that he would be able to assist us if he came on, and he did very well.” “We had the same dealings with Rangers over Jamie Walker. So I kind of expect the same thing again.”Walker was left out of squads at the time as speculation and uncertainty affected him and Levein opted to put Lafferty on the bench for Sunday’s 5-0 League Cup win over Inverness.The striker came off the bench and Levein explained later that he felt the player has been affected by events but impressed with his contribution to the win.“As much as Kyle says it’s not having an effect, I think it probably has,” he said.last_img read more
