Rangers transfer news as Celtic also told to sign Aberdeen attacker Duk

Rangers need to get their scouts looking at Aberdeen attacker Duk immediately, according to Daily Record journalist Scott Burns.

Writing in the latest print edition of the newspaper [25 March, pg 58], Burns insisted that with Ryan Kent potentially leaving on a free, the Cape Verde sensation could be the perfect replacement.

Burns not only backed Duk to replace Kent, but throw in far more goal involvements with a warning also sent to Celtic to get on the hype train as well.

He wrote: Celtic and Rangers should both be looking closely at Duk.

“Duk is a real talent and if the Dons do sell, they will hope it will be big money to a club in England or Europe. Kent is out of contract at the end of this season and there is a genuine chance he could leave Ibrox on a free transfer.

“Duk could not only fill that void but throw more goal involvements into the bargain.”

It’s hard to imagine Ross Wilson paying any attention to this.

Rangers have not had much joy buying from Scotland in recent years, with John Souttar the latest disaster to step foot through the door at Ibrox from Hearts.

Ryan Jack followed the same path that Duk could, although it would likely take much more money than would be liked, especially if someone like Kent leaves.

Clubs close to home will know that Rangers will be desperate to replace the Englishman, and therefore could ask for more, ridiculous amounts of money.

Morgan Whittaker of Swansea was subject to numerous bids in the January window, so that could be one to watch that is more realistic in the upcoming summer.

Right now, it is all about buisness on the pitch, not off it with plenty of Old Firms to come and the Scottish Cup up for grabs with silverware desperately needed for Michael Beale in his first season in charge.
