The Gers know better than most just how effective a successful pre-contractual agreement can be.
Both Glen Kamara and Jordan Jones were snapped up on similar deals this time last year, while Joe Aribo continues to go from strength to strength after coming in at the end of his time with Charlton Athletic too.
With that kind of form, it’s easy to see why the Bears might be tempted to go back to that watering hole in an effort to improve upon their squad again this summer.
The man in question this time is 20-year-old Stoke City striker Tyrese Campbell, with the Daily Record reporting that the Gers have informed the Potters of their intention to speak to the youngster directly.
But it looks as if they could be in for some serious competition in their pursuit of the hitman.
Alongside Celtic, who have been credited with an interest for as long as Rangers have, Football Insider is now reporting that a host of English Premier League sides could be keen on Campbell too.
Wolves, Bournemouth, and Crystal Palace are all mentioned in the piece, and that could be very bad news for the Gers.
The lure of top flight football will always be a difficult one to resist, and if he has his head turned by this newfound interest, it could be hard to turn it back.
The only hope in that scenario would be to really emphasise the one secret weapon that the Bears can offer over their English counterparts – regular first team football.
The path to a significant senior place will be a lot clearer at Ibrox, and that must be made evident to Campbell during talks.
If not, the Gers can kiss goodbye to another piece of transfer wizardry.
