Talk of transfer rumours surrounding Rangers rarely don’t involve Liverpool loanee Dominic Solanke.
Whether you fancy him or not, he’s been consistently linked with Ibrox since Gerrard took over. There’s even been talk of him joining up in January.
Still only 21, the Chelsea Academy graduate and Liverpool squad player clearly has a bright future. He proved it playing for England’s U21s last night.
The athletic forward lifted the ball over the keeper with a cheeky, powerful backheel.
"HOW ABOUT THAT!"

It was the England babe’s third in a 5-1 mauling of Denmark. Leicester’s Demerai Gray and Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin got doubles to complete the scoring.
It was also Solanke’s third goal in two games for the side. A Dominic Double little under a week ago dispatched the Italians in their homeland.
Do Rangers move if viable?
It’s pretty clear that there’s something about this kid. He’s powerful, technically skilled and talented. He’d be a great addition.
Solanke has struggled for game time at Anfield and is yet to play this season. There are also several players in front him in the Liverpool pecking order.
Solanke quite simply needs to move to get game-time in January. Besides from the links with Rangers, Solanke is also reportedly being considered by Crystal Palace and West Ham.
He can play across the frontline and would be a mean addition in January. If Rangers can strike a loan move for the striker through Gerrard, it’d also be a real coup.
