3 Replacements Gerrard Can Consider For The Outgoing Lafferty At Rangers Including This Cardiff Ace

According to the latest reports from the Daily Record, Kyle Lafferty is nearing his Ibrox exit after an underwhelming second spell at Rangers. The former Hearts man was signed last season, but the big striker failed to make much of an impact for Gerrard’s team. An exit has been on the cards for quite a while as reports had earlier emerged that Gerrard was unhappy with Lafferty’s commitment and desire.

Some reports mention that clubs from Saudi Arabia and Qatar are interested in the Northern Irish striker. Lafferty still has one year left on his Rangers contract so Gerrard would hope that he can garner some fee by selling the striker. The manager also needs to keep an eye on his replacement and the club would want to bring in someone of a similar mould who can act as a targetman and can change things up when ‘plan A’ does not work. Here are three strikers the English manager can consider.

Andy Carroll

Gerrard’s former club and national teammate is available on a free transfer after he was let go by West Ham United. Carroll has been troubled with injuries, but when fit, he could be classified as one of the best target men in the Premier League. His physical strength and hold up play are impressive, and he can surprise a few people with his link-up play as well.

Blessed with top-notch aerial abilities, Carroll can be a smart signing on a free transfer. His wages might be an issue, but maybe Gerrard can persuade him to come at Ibrox.

Uche Ikpeazu

The Hearts man signed a new contract not too long ago, but we believe that the Gers can lure him this summer. The 24-year-old managed to score eight goals and provided with five assists as well. His raw strength and pace are often tough to deal with for the opposition, and his tenacious approach means that not many defenders would enjoy playing against a man like Ikpeazu. The forward is currently in the prime of his career, and he can be a great addition to the Rangers squad.

Omar Bogle

The Cardiff City forward spent the last season on loan with Birmingham City first and then Portsmouth where he put in some eye-catching performances.

The striker is currently in the final year of his contract, and we think that he can be a shrewd signing for Rangers. The 26-year-old is known for his impressive work rate, and he can act as a good targetman up front.
