Signing Martin Boyle will bring much-needed experience to Rangers ranks

Craig Moore has insisted that Rangers should be interested in making a move for Al-Faisaly FC winger Martin Boyle in the ongoing transfer window, speaking to the Daily Record.

The 29-year-old spent seven years in Scotland and made 147 appearances in the Premiership for Hibernian before moving to the Saudi Arabian League.

Moore believes that the Gers should make that move to bring back the veteran winger to the country in the current transfer window, with experience desperately needed.

Rangers are in the market to sign attacking players, especially because of the uncertainty regarding the future of striker Alfredo Morelos.


Boyle will not just be another body within the Rangers squad, he will be someone that will provide experience and can prove to be the difference-maker in critical matches.

He has known Scottish football since he was a kid and he wouldn’t have any problems adapting to the Rangers’ group of players.

In the recently concluded Professional League in Saudi Arabia, the Australia international scored three goals and provided one assist in 12 appearances. He started 86% of his games for the club.

In all competitions, his numbers were really impressive as he scored 18 times and provided seven assists in just 46 matches across all competitions [Transfermarkt].

Those numbers are not as prolific as the ones Morelos produced last year in the domestic and continental tournaments, but considering his experience of playing in Scotland, it won’t be the worst decision to give Boyle a chance to succeed at the Ibrox Stadium.

Rangers could do much worst than listening to Moore, with his move a potential domestic gamechanger.
