Reports this morning are suggesting that Kyle Lafferty is finally on his way to Rangers.

Many are saying that the Ulsterman could make the move today and be ready to play against FC Ufa in the Europa League tomorrow.

Needless to say, the Northern Irishman is over the moon. At least according to international teammate Lee Hodson.

Kyle Lafferty spent four years at Ibrox between 2008 and 2012. Here are three other ex-players who came back home.

Craig Moore

The Australian centre-back was a mountain at the back for Rangers and made over 150 league appearances for the club. A captain and a leader, his total of 12 seasons with the club puts him up there as a legend. However, it could’ve been so different.

Not a lot of people know that in 1998 Moore spent a season down south with Crystal Palace in the English Premier League.

He made 23 appearances and scored three goals in an impressive season. Problems over a transfer fee meant that after only one season he returned up North and built a legacy at Ibrox.

Barry Ferguson

Barry Ferguson, in my humble opinion, was the best Scotland player of a generation. The intelligent, goal-scoring, tempo controlling midfielder was also Mr Rangers for a while. The season before he moved to Blackburn for a reported £7.5mn in 2003, he scored 16 league goals. Another captain, Ferguson’s name is etched into the history of the club.

Injury spoiled his time in England and it was very much a case of what might’ve been for Baz. He returned to Ibrox in 2005, playing a further four seasons and taking his appearance total to 431. He also captained the team to the UEFA Cup Final.

Kenny Miller

King Kenny might’ve lost his crown at Ibrox, but it’s hard to take his achievements away from him.

Leaving in a bit of a disgrace last year was a real stain on his time at the club, which stretched over three spells.

Firstly, Miller joined from Hibs in 2000 and after a season was snapped up by Wolves.

He would rejoin Rangers in 2008 – after playing for Celtic in between – and work hard to redeem himself. 49 league goals in 81 appearances just about done it.

He was then sold to Bursapor in the January of 2011. Miller then played for Cardiff and Vancouver Whitecaps before returning for a third spell in 2014. He reached a century of goals for Rangers until leaving at the end of last season.
