Rangers: Barry Anderson reveals exciting transfer news

Rangers: Barry Anderson reveals exciting transfer news -Rangers News

Scottish football journalist Barry Anderson has now revealed some exciting Glasgow Rangers transfer news on one young British striker who could be a target for the Ibrox giants.

The Lowdown: Loan spell

In recent days, Gers insider The 4th Official – who first broke news of Govanni van Bronckhorsts’s move to Ibrox last November, – was “informed by a reliable source” that the Light Blues are considering Ellis Simms as a possible transfer target.

The 21-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan in the Premiership, where he managed to score seven goals and supply one assist in 21 games across all competitions (Transfermarkt).

During his loan spell, the Everton striker helped Hearts to finish in a respectable third place in the Scottish top flight, only behind the top two from Glasgow.

The Latest: Rangers interest

Taking to Twitter, Anderson has revealed that Rangers are ‘aware’ that Simms could become available again, although Hearts are ‘pushing’ to get the 21-year-old back for next season.

The reporter tweeted: “Hearts pushing to get Simms back. Rangers are aware he could become available. Both clubs also looking at other forwards. Loan would seem most likely but Everton may consider a permanent. Richarlison’s exit to Spurs leaves them a striker short so that could delay Simms moving.”

Rangers fans! Do you remember who scored your first league goal of the 21/22 season?

The Verdict: Sign him

If Simms is available on loan again, then Giovanni van Bronckhorst should be seriously considering signing him up for Rangers.

Dubbed an ‘outstanding‘ player by former Everton under-23s manager David Unsworth, his record at youth level for the Toffees is impeccable, as he once scored a mammoth 32 goals in just 21 matches in the Under-18 Premier League in the 2018/19 campaign (Transfermarkt).

Should Rangers sign Simms?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Rangers were rocked by injuries to their two main strikers Alfredo Morelos and Kemar Roofe last season, so therefore Simms – who now has the experience of playing and indeed thriving in the Premiership – would be the perfect player to come in at Ibrox if the worst-case scenario happens again.
