Kyle Lafferty to host a speakers night, but should he do talking on pitch?

Rangers striker Kyle Lafferty is set to host Speaker’s Nights in Glasgow and Dundee the first weekend in January.

The events, hosted by David Tanner, will look at the Northern Irishman’s interesting career. That’ll include his two spells at Ibrox, his time with Burnley, Sion, Palermo, Norwich and Hearts.

Whilst it is peculiar that a player who’s not yet retired is doing the Speaker’s circuit, good luck to him. Lafferty has also undergone numerous challenges off the field, including a well-publicised gambling addiction.

He’s also an international hero for Northern Ireland and will also have plenty to say on his success with his country.

The event takes place on the 4th of January and you can read more about it here.

But should Kyle be trying harder to do his talking on the pitch?

It feels like we’re still waiting for Kyle Lafferty to show up

Kyle is obviously a top player and has proved it plenty over the years. When he got the chance to move back to Rangers, it must’ve been a hard decision.

He was doing so well at Hearts, and there were some open wounds from how he left the first time.

He rejoined Rangers with a point to prove but has as of yet failed to prove it. Granted, chances have been at a premium with the form of Alfredo Morelos, but when he has been called upon he hasn’t stepped up.

Against Dundee he might’ve got a goal chalked off but once again he struggled to impose himself on the game. He’s also struggled to click with Alfredo Morelos, at least on the pitch.

There have also been a few off-field dramas the striker’s had to contend with.

It’s all well and good speaking about the career he’s had so far, but at 31, there’s still plenty more of it left.

Since he’s come back to Rangers he needs to be doing more.
