Report: Glasgow Rangers interested in available striker, but have illustrious competition

Glasgow Rangers are considering bringing Montserrat international striker Lyle Taylor from Charlton to Ibrox on a free transfer deal, according to the Daily Mail.

The forward has allowed his contract to run down and is available in June, which could well suit the Gers.

Rangers midfielder Joe Aribo played with 30-year-old Taylor at Charlton, which could well be an attraction for the centre forward to move to Ibrox.

Taylor’s contract runs out on June 30 and has numerous clubs clamouring for his signature, including Turkish giants Galatasaray, according to the Daily Mail.

In 2018-19 he signed for Charlton in League One, and scored a vital 21 goals which saw his side promoted to the Championship.

In 2019-20, Taylor had to miss out on two occasions due to a hamstring injury and a thigh problem.

The centre forward only made 17 starts and five substitute appearances, but still managed to score 11 goals in the process.

Rangers will be looking for reinforcements this summer as they look to stop Celtic claiming their tenth consecutive top-flight title in 2020-21.

However, with funds expected to be limited, the Gers will be looking to bring in quality players for affordable prices.

That said, should Galatasaray be in the mix for Taylor, it will take a lot of persuasion from the Ibrox outfit to convince the 30-year-old to move to Glasgow.
