Rangers could face 15-goal international Duckens Nazon against St Mirren

Steven Gerrard wasn’t the only busy manager in Scotland, during the January transfer window.
His opposite number on Saturday, Oran Kearney, has considerably strengthened his ranks, too. On Deadline Day, St Mirren confirmed the signing of Duckens Nazon.
The 24-year-old striker arrives on loan from Belgian Pro League side, Sint-Truiden.

Nazon is hardly a household name, but his career so far certainly makes for interesting reading.
He had played club football in France, India and England, before his move to Belgium last year.

The forward also boasts an impressive international record.
Although French-born, he represents Haiti at international level.

Since making his debut for the Caribbean nation in 2014, he has accumulated 26 caps and scored 15 goals.
Clearly, the standard of football isn’t always as high as in UEFA competitions. Yet, it’s still a very strong goals-to-games ration.

Steven Gerrard noted today in the pre-match press conference, as per the clubs website, that Rangers have been keeping an eye on their opponent’s activities in the window.

“They have added three or four decent new signings into the mix, so it makes the challenge that bit more difficult for us”, said the Gers manager.

There has been no official confirmation that Nazon will go straight into the St Mirren squad.
However, with Kearney claiming the forward was the type of player the Buddies have been “crying out for” – if he’s fully fit – expect him to line-up against Katic and co., tomorrow.
