Rangers: Alex McLeish urges Light Blues to sign another striker

Rangers: Alex McLeish urges Light Blues to sign another striker -Rangers News

Glasgow Rangers must sign another striker this summer regardless of whether or not Alfredo Morelos leaves the club, Sky Sports pundit Alex McLeish has said.

The Lowdown: Morelos latest

As reported by the Daily Record, the Light Blues will not look to sign another forward this summer unless the Colombia international leaves Ibrox.

The 26-year-old has entered the final year of his Gers contract and is still yet to play a part in Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s pre-season due to an injury sustained at the end of the 2021/22 campaign.

Earlier this month, Rangers announced the signing of Antonio Colak from PAOK in a deal worth £1.8m plus add-ons, currently making him Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s starting option up front.

The Latest: McLeish’s claim

Former Rangers boss McLeish believes that the Light Blues need more players who are capable of scoring goals regularly if they are to win the Premiership title.

Speaking to Football Insider, he claimed: “The niggle last year was the reliance on Morelos for goals.

“They moved the pack around and Arfield played up there sometimes when everyone was injured. With Colak, the word was that he is not a prolific goalscorer.

“But there were moments in the West Ham game where he looked promising. They need reinforcement for the striker position.

“They still have Kemar Roofe, he was probably one of the main catalysts for winning the league a few years ago because he scored the most goals apart from Morelos.

“Celtic has three or four players who were exciting and scoring goals last season. That’s the kind of firepower Rangers need this season.”

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

The Verdict: Additions needed

Kyogo Furuhashi, Jota, Giorgos Giakoumakis and Liel Abada all reached double figures for goals for Celtic last season, sharing the responsibility amongst the team.

However, it was right-back James Tavernier who topped Rangers’ scoring charts with 16 goals in all competitions, with Morelos and Roofe the only other two players at Ibrox to hit the 10-goal mark.

Should Rangers sell Kent and Morelos this summer?

Yes, if price is right!

No, we need them!

Therefore, with the Colombian’s future still in the air, it is imperative that the Light Blues bring in another striker this summer to help bolster Van Bronckhorst’s attacking options, especially with a hectic schedule involving continental competition.
