Rangers need a striker and bringing this £4.5m-rated man back to Scotland makes total sense

Rangers fans in the Transfer Tavern have been extremely quiet following a humbling defeat against Celtic which saw their arch-rivals lift the title under their noses.

Major changes at required at Ibrox next season if Rangers are to end the dominance of Celtic and plans are already underway. Talks with Liverpool legend, Steven Gerrard, are reportedly underway to appoint the ex-England captain as their new manager in the near future.

The Gers have struggled for goals this season with Alfredo Morelos the only forward to hit more than six goals so far this season. If Rangers are to compete with Celtic again, they need some more firepower and Gerrard should look to make bringing a marquee marksman to Ibrox one of his first priorities.

Rangers have previously been linked with Aston Villa forward Ross McCormack who has failed to impress at Villa Park since making a £12m move from Fulham in 2016. The striker is currently on loan with Melbourne City where he has netted 13 goals in 15 games.

McCormack hasn’t played in the Scottish Premiership since 2008 with Motherwell, leaving the Steelmen for Cardiff but Rangers should aim to bring him back. The 31-year-old is valued at £4.5m by Transfermarkt but the Villains will be keen to get him off their books.

Despite his struggles at Villa, his time in Australia shows just how good he can be. If Rangers can help him rediscover his best form, he could prove to be a shrewd piece of business.
