Rangers have agreed an extension to Florian Kamberi’s loan deal from Hibs to allow him to play in August’s Europa League clash with Bayer Leverkusen, according to a report.

The Sunday Post claims that the Albanian striker will return to Ibrox on a short-term basis after spending part of last season on loan with Steven Gerrard’s side.

Kamberi appears to have no future at Hibs after comments he made following his loan move and he will rejoin the Gers until the end of August.

There had previously been reports that Rangers could snap up the striker for as little as £150,000 but it looks as though the Gers are only considering a short-term move just now.

 

If a loan deal is agreed and Kamberi impresses though, he could well find himself joining the likes of Ryan Kent, Jermain Defoe and Ianis Hagi as loanees Gerrard has then signed permanently.

Despite being used out wide more often than in a traditional no.9 role, he regularly made positive contributions when introduced from the bench and grabbed a single goal for the Gers before last season was curtailed.

With the Light Blues being linked with a number of strikers over the summer so far, bringing Kamberi back on a short-term basis would make sense for Rangers.
