Ian Holloway Goes in On Graeme Murty After His Sean Goss Comments

Ian Holloway has hit back at Graeme Murty after the Rangers manager’s comments about potentially signing Sean Goss on a permanent basis.

The QPR manager was the one who agreed to loan the midfielder to the Ibrox club in January – and that’s something Murty and everyone at the Govan club should be thankful for given the quality shown by Goss since joining.

Murty has been so impressed that he’s already said that a permanent move for the former Manchester United youth could be on the cards in the summer.

But Holloway obviously doesn’t agree with that and responded strongly to the Rangers manager after hearing his comments.

The outspoken QPR boss said, per dailyrecord.co.uk: “I’d rather talk to Graeme about that myself because he is out of order talking about my player.

“He’s my player, nobody else’s. It’s not right he’s talking about trying to buy one of my players when that player is not for sale.”

Holloway admitted that he likes Murty, but told of his surprise at the comments.

He added: “If Graeme has said he wants him permanently then that’s a bit of a silly statement because he is not for sale. You can’t buy someone who is not for sale.

“I’d imagine Graeme would speak to me about it at the right time. Graeme should do his job by speaking to me about my player.

“Graeme’s a good bloke but I’m pretty surprised he’s left himself open to this. I have no issue with him but the boy is not for sale.”

Holloway’s comments probably won’t go down well with Murty – and Rangers fans certainly won’t enjoy reading them as they get their hopes up of adding Goss on a permanent basis in the summer.

But, as Murty has already said, plenty can change between now and then.
