Rangers: Fans on Twitter mixed over Lawrence Shankland rumours

According to The Daily Record, Rangers are keeping an eye on 15-goal Dundee United striker, Lawrence Shankland.

Is Lawrence Shankland good enough for Rangers?





Rangers have, of course, been linked with the striker before when he was at Ayr United, where he scored 60 goals in 73 games. A self-confessed blue nose, it certainly is an interesting rumour given his track record over the last few years.

Shankland has shown over the last few years that he can be a prolific goalscorer in Scotland’s lower leagues but there should remain question marks over his capabilities to deliver in the top flight. Although he was just a youngster, he failed to net in 17 appearances for Aberdeen when he previously had the chance.

There is also the issue that he potentially wouldn’t get much game time at a club with Alfredo Morelos and Jermain Defoe leading the line and Greg Stewart as a backup.

Some Rangers fans took to social media to express their opinions on Shankland and whether or not he would be a good piece of business for the Ibrox club.

As you can see, a mixed bag, the perception seems to be that the time to sign him was in the summer on a free contract and given Rangers’ “relationship” with Dundee United owing to some of the latter’s fans wearing Craig White masks in 2013, it’s unlikely that they would be amicable in negotiations.
