Alan Gow: India Calling

Another big transfer rumour doing the round in the Indian football circuit is the possible move of former Rangers striker Alan Gow to East Bengal. The 28 year old Alan is a free agent following his contract expiry with the English side Notts County at the end of the season.

It is reported that Gow has been offered a lucrative one year deal by Kingfisher East Bengal which prompted him to mull over the decision of coming to ply his trade in India. And the 28 year old, who can play both as striker and attacking midfielder, is quite upbeat about the possibility of playing in a different environment.

Gow, who has done pre-season with Rangers, has been recommended to East Bengal’s English manager Trevor Morgan. Aberdeen boss Craig Brown is also keen to work with his former Motherwell striker though Gow is said to be excited about making the 120,000 capacity Salt Lake Stadium his home ground.

Gow, who has vast experience behind him, playing for the likes of Airdrie, Falkirk, Rangers, Blackpool, Norwich, Plymouth and Hibs, started last season with Motherwell before moving to Notts County during the winter transfer window.

East Bengal hasn’t quite done so much in the transfer market this season while their rivals Mohun Bagan have gone on a singing spree. Yet to fill their fourth foreign quota, after retaining Tolgay Ozbey, Uga Okpara and Penn Orji, East Bengal officials are not in a hurry to fill it up. Rather they are looking for a perfect candidate to fill the slot.
