Jewell defiant after McCulloch transfer request

Rangers target Lee McCulloch has had his transfer request rejected by Wigan.

The Glasgow giants had a £750,000 bid rejected for the Scotland striker earlier this week which Latics boss Paul Jewell dismissed as 'derisory' and 'insulting'.

McCulloch's agent yesterday insisted his client was still considering whether to hand in a transfer request after he was earmarked as a future Ibrox frontman by new manager Walter Smith but today the player has confirmed his desire to leave the JJB Stadium.

Jewell, though, is adamant McCulloch will not be leaving unless the club receive 'an unbelievable offer.'

After meeting with McCulloch today, Jewell said: 'He can hand in 10 transfer requests, but until something is right for this club, then he won't be going.

'I spoke to Walter Smith yesterday, and I'm disappointed the stuff (about the bid) came out earlier in the week.

'Rangers are denying it, and they are saying it's the agent - who incidentally is not his agent.

'I think Lee forgot to tell him he is contracted to somebody else until March.

'But Walter knows my stance on it, and as far as I'm concerned, nothing is going to be done unless it is an unbelievable offer.

'And even then, I probably won't consider it.'

McCulloch, who only signed a new three-year deal in the summer, is represented by the Professional Footballers' Association.

However, it is John Viola who has this week been speaking on the player's behalf.

Expressing his unhappiness at McCulloch's decision, Jewell added: 'It's disappointing, but I'll get over it.

'He says it's for family reasons he wants to go back to Scotland - but he forgot to put that in his transfer request!

'Whoever wrote it has not quite got the wording right!'

The situation is remarkably similar to that of Pascal Chimbonda, who stunned the club by handing in a transfer request of his own within minutes of the final game of last season.

Chimbonda eventually joined Spurs at the start of this season for £5.25million.

Jewell quipped: 'At least Chimbonda put his in an envelope!

'But we're not losing Lee. Just because he's handed in a transfer request, it doesn't matter.'
