Linfield agree deal to sign Rangers loanee after impressive form - report

Linfield have agreed a deal to sign Rangers strike Chris McKee, according to a report, after impressing on loan with the Blues.

McKee spent part of the season with David Healy’s side as they won a world record 56th league title and will now return to Windsor Park on a permanent basis.

The Northern Irishman scored six times after his move to Belfast in January, having also spent time out on loan with Brechin City.

With the likes of Tony Weston making huge strides in the B team this season, the Northern Ireland under-21 international appears to have decided to seek first-team football elsewhere.

McKee was joined on loan at Linfield by Jake Hastie with the Rangers winger also looking likely to leave Ibrox this season after a dismal time since signing from Motherwell.

Rangers exit probably makes sense for McKee

After struggling to get close to the first-team at Ibrox, it makes sense for McKee to move on and try his luck elsewhere.

With Rangers reportedly pocketing an undisclosed fee, there is hopefully further bonuses down the line if McKee does well.

Although it didn’t really work out for him at Ibrox, the striker can head back to Northern Ireland and make a name for himself.
