Rangers are about as well-stocked in the striking department as they could ever wish to be. 

With Alfredo Morelos leading much of Europe in terms of his goalscoring feats, and with Jermain Defoe providing an experienced and effective deputy, the forward line at Ibrox is about as lethal as it has been in many, many years.

But, goals win football matches, and with that in mind, you can never have enough of them.

Which is why the latest update from reliable journalist Bruce Archer will no doubt be of interest to the top dogs in the blue half of Glasgow.


Writing on his personal Twitter account, Archer said: “Charlton have withdrawn their contract offer to Lyle Taylor and are open to offers this month.

“Rangers interested along with Brentford, Swansea, West Brom and Sheffield Wednesday.”

Taylor has hit seven goals and one assist in 13 Championship appearances so far this season, but is out of contract at the end of the term, and as of yet, has not agreed terms on an extension.

After Archer’s update, it would appear that this is now unlikely, and that opens the door for the 29-year-old to leave The Valley this month.

The Gers have been linked with him before, as per Sky Sports, and this latest update should make his capture a lot more simple.

And if the chance to sign him is genuinely there, the Bears should take it with both hands.

The forward is a proper danger man in and around the box, averaging 2.6 shots per game so far this term, as per Whoscored.

You could, of course, argue that Rangers already have two players of that ilk in Morelos and Defoe, but a little bit of extra firepower, especially if it’s available on the relative cheap like Taylor will no doubt be, would not go amiss.

Snap him up.
