Northern Ireland manager Michael O’Neill is confident that Rangers flop Kyle Lafferty will “reignite” his career away from Ibrox if he is shown the exit by Steven Gerrard this summer.
Lafferty has been told he has no Ibrox future, according to a report, with Cypriots Apollon Limassol said to be interested in a move for the veteran striker.
“The speculation is he will be moving on, there is always interest in him, sometimes from around globe and we’ll see what happens,”
Since returning to Ibrox in August, Lafferty has managed six goals in 30 appearances but has never looked like threatening Alfredo Morelos for a place in the starting XI.
The January arrival of Jermain Defoe only made Lafferty’s future look even bleaker and a move away suits all parties.
Whether Rangers end up ripping the former Burnley, Sion and Palermo striker’s contract up or recouping some of the £500,000 they spent remains to be seen but moving him on is most important.
