Rangers: Light Blues plotting move for Scotland striker

Rangers: Light Blues plotting move for Scotland striker - Rangers News

Glasgow Rangers are interested in a move for a Scotland international striker in January, according to reports.

The Lowdown: Uncertain future

Ross Stewart led Sunderland to promotion last season by scoring the second goal in the League One play-off final against Wycombe, but after sustaining an injury earlier in the current campaign, he hasn’t featured since the end of August.

The 26-year-old’s deal is set to expire at the end of the season, meaning that he is able to negotiate a pre-contract agreement with potential suitors from January onwards, and it sounds like the Light Blues are keen on bringing him to the Scottish Premiership.

The Latest: Rangers eyeing Stewart

According to Football League World, Sunderland are ‘ready to sell’ Stewart in the New Year if he doesn’t put pen to paper on fresh terms at the Stadium of Light.

Rangers and Celtic have both been credited with an ‘ongoing interest’ in the two-cap international, and whilst an offer has been put on the table which would make him the highest-paid player on Wearside, the deal ‘remains unsigned’.

The Verdict: Morelos replacement?

Alfredo Morelos has been heavily linked with an exit from Ibrox, and should he depart at any stage next year, Stewart would be the perfect replacement.

The Black Cats attacker has been dubbed a ‘real threat’ by Josh Bunting, which is proven in his numbers, having racked up 42 goal contributions in 72 appearances for Sunderland.

Stewart also has prior experience in the Premiership, having had spells with St Mirren and Ross County, so he will know what it takes to compete at the highest level of Scottish football, another reason why Rangers would be wise to move for him.
