With manager Steven Gerrard still in the hunt for another striker, we take a look at why Louis Moult is the perfect fit for Rangers.

The new Ibrox head coach hasn’t wasted any time in bringing in Umar Sadiq on loan from Roma in a bid to bolster his attacking options, but he has already confirmed that he is in the market for another striker.

Should Gerrard view Sadiq as a hold-up player who can chip in with the odd strike, it would seem that the burden of goals would once again fall on Alfredo Morelos. The much-maligned Gers front-man isn’t in the good books these days with supporters, and he could do with a helping hand when it comes to the goals front.

This is where Moult would fit the bill perfectly for Rangers. Having left Motherwell for Preston North End last January, Moult has failed to fight his way into Alex Neil’s first-team and will be looking for first-team football next season.

The 26-year-old is the kind of player who had the ability to score terrific goals out of nothing, and proved he had an eye for goal on the big occasions with eight goals against the Old Firm during his time in North Lanarkshire.

The Englishman remains one of the few viable options for Rangers at the moment that would strike an element of fear into domestic defences – including Celtic.

Should Jamie Murphy, Scott Arfield, and Daniel Candeias all click going forward, this would present Moult with plenty of service if he gets the chance to strut his stuff in Light Blue. This could also be the respite that Morelos needs, leaving Gerrard with potentially two terrific goal-scorers at his disposal.

Affordability remains the biggest obstacle as it seems to do for most Rangers transfer targets these days.

However, with Aberdeen firmly believing they have the opportunity to bring Moult back up north, there is no reason to believe Rangers could not hijack that deal instead with a bigger budget still available.
