Former Rangers man Alan Hutton has backed the outfit to complete the permanent signing of Florian Kamberi in the summer.
The on-loan Hibernian man joined the club in the January transfer window after he was signed as a replacement for Jermaine Defoe (via BBC). Following the move, he professed his love for the Ibrox outfit, claiming that it was his ‘dream’ to play for the team since moving to Scotland.
Hutton did admit he was shocked the club made a move for the player, however, has seemingly changed his tune and has now backed his old side to sign him, despite the lack of a clause to make his move permanent.
He said: “I think so, I don’t see why not. He’s come in, hit the ground running and done really well. He’s made a difference when he’s come off the bench, you can really see why they brought him in. I did raise my eyebrows as well, like a lot of people, when he came in, I found it a strange one.”
“…I think he’d be a good addition, you never know with the likes of Morelos what’s going to happen in the summer. I think that would be a good option for Rangers going forward.” (Source: Football Insider)
Given the lack of goals from Alfredo Morelos of late and the fact that Defoe is now 37-years-old, it would be a smart decision to complete a permanent move for the Swiss-born forward, who is just 25-years-old. As Hutton has pointed out, Kamberi has made a difference during his short time with the club and was crucial in Rangers snatching a point away to St Johnstone as he notched up a goal and assist in the 2-2 draw.
More to the point, if you want to sign a player, it might as well be someone who is seemingly in love with the club and who has already settled in. That seems to be the case with the £675k-rated, as per Transfermarkt, striker, who has shown how much he values Steven Gerrard’s side with his comments upon his arrival back in January.
