Rangers have undergone a major transformation under the watch of Steven Gerrard this summer as 10 new faces have walked through the doors at Ibrox. Indeed, with the Liverpool legend now in charge, Gers fans all around the world must be looking forward to the new campaign with a serious level of excitement.
Optimism is abound at Ibrox and the captures of players such as Scott Arfield, Ryan Kent and Connor Goldson will have gone down as major coups in Scotland though recent transfer links aren’t nearly as exciting. According to the Daily Record, the club are relaxed about making another move for Kyle Lafferty, having seen their opening bid rejected by Hearts.
Lafferty, while a decent striker at this level, isn’t a player Gerrard should be moving for. There is another striker touted with a move to Scotland who should be targeted instead, in keeping with the exciting nature of Rangers’ other signings this summer.
Birmingham City striker Greg Stewart is understood to be of interest to the likes of Hearts and Aberdeen having struggled in England, though would surely be a more dynamic option at Ibrox than Lafferty.
The former Dundee man fared fairly well on loan at Pittodrie despite his lack of goals for the Dons. Rangers’ current strike force boasts the likes of Umar Saqid, Jamie Murphy, Alfredo Morelos and Ryan Kent, so there are certainly goals there already. Instead of Lafferty, the could do with someone like Stewart to hold the ball, bringing their vast array of varied attackers into play.
With the Dons themselves understood to be keen on the man rated £495k by Transfermarkt, Rangers should hijack a move.
