Three goalscorers Rangers should look at in January

Rangers clearly need a capable forward to assist Alfredo Morelos in the second half of this season. January presents an opportunity to help the club’s top scorer.

Morelos has often been relied upon by Steven Gerrard, with summer signings Kyle Lafferty and Umar Sadiq failing to make a serious impression so far this term.

With Rangers possibly competing on three fronts after Christmas, it’s essential Rangers get another forward in January, one that is capable of taking some of the work-load off the in-form Colombian.


Lawrence Shankland

With reported interest from Swansea, Rangers must act fast if they want the services of Gers fan, and Ayr United hit man, Lawrence Shankland. 26 goals in 23 games is a phenomenal return, no matter the level.

He is performing in the Championship, and with stats like that, he would shine in the Premiership too. Shankland is a Rangers fans, and a January move must be on the agenda for Gerrard. Shankland is trying to drag Ayr to the top flight, but he deserves a crack at the big time in January.

Oliver McBurnie

Another well-known Rangers fan, Swansea City striker Oliver McBurnie is another potential January target for Gerrard. He’s scored eight goals in the Championship this season, and has broken into the Scotland first team in recent months.

He only recently signed a new deals in Wales, however, so Rangers would have to dig deep into their pockets for the services of McBurnie.

The Scottish international is gathering a good reputation for both club and country, and if Rangers want a proven goalscorer, they can’t go far wrong with McBurnie.

Josh Maja

Sunderland have been rebuilding following a disastrous couple of years. Former St Mirren boss Jack Ross has got the task of returning the Black Cats to the Premier League, and Josh Maja has been his goalscorer, delivering the goods up top.

He’s scored 11 goals in League One so far this term. What’s better is that he is out of contract at the end of the season. With no new deal in place, Rangers should be looking to get a cut-price deal in January. Whilst he is only 19, Rangers could potentially sign a star for the future.
