Aberdeen midfielder Ricky Foster has urged the Hibs` players Rangers are targeting to stay where they are and not become the forgotten men of football. He has said that they should look at previous players who have made the switch from Edinburgh to Glasgow and how their careers have ground to a halt through lack of matches at clubs with much bigger squads.

Foster knows the spending power the Old Firm have, he is aware that players cannot afford not to take the chance of moving to Glasgow because of the temptation of much higher wages.

Foster has spoken after Rangers have asked Hibs to name their asking price for the talents of young Scottish stars Scott Brown and Kevin Thomson and said on the matter ‘It is scary for other teams.

This is Rangers saying they can take talented players away from other clubs.

It’s like Riordan at Celtic. He hasn’t played but at Hibs he was in the first team every week which is why he scored so many goals.

But at Celtic he has not really featured which is hard especially for a striker to get going.

With Brown and Thomson they need to play every week.

They have proved how good they are but if they go to Rangers, with the squad the size it is there, they will get rotated and not play.

So it is quite scary that Rangers can just sign anyone and bully their way in and it is almost like what Chelsea do down in England. That stops teams improving.’
