Blackpool manager Ian Holloway has replied to the numerous media reports about Charlie Adam signing for the Seasiders, stating that he is still hopeful a deal can be done.

Holloway told the club’s official website,

I have just got off the phone to Charlie’s agent. Charlie is supposed to be reporting back for pre-season training tomorrow (Wednesday) at Rangers and his agent has told us that, although Rangers have accepted our offer, he is a bit confused about things because he thought he might have had a chance at Rangers.’

‘The lad has heard lots of speculation about Barry Ferguson moving from the club and he fancies the chance of still playing for them because he is a Rangers fan.

‘So, he is going to see Walter Smith tomorrow and hopefully he will be coming to see us on Thursday.’


Holloway confirmed that a bid for Adam has been accepted by Rangers, but despite media reports and a statement on the Ibrox club’s official website, saying that Adam would be talking to Blackpool on Tuesday, those talks will not take place until Thursday, once Adam has spoken with Rangers boss Walter Smith.
