Rangers linked with summer move for Championship striker



Rangers have been surprisingly linked again with a move for Preston’s Louis Moult, having failed in January to take interest in the ex-Motherwell striker further.

In a curious twist, the 25 year old, who is yet to score for Alex Neil's Championship side in six appearances at Deepdale, is said to be interesting Rangers management as a possible summer target, despite his signing a three and a half year deal down south for a reported £500,000 in January.

We are not quite sure how this one surfaced, and assumed, like most other Rangers fans, that interest in the hitman was dead and buried once he switched to the Lilywhites, but this new story claims Rangers are looking at him again.

It was always suggested Rangers saw the now Preston North End man as a replacement for the aging Kenny Miller, but with Alfredo Morelos’ situation not 100% set in stone (despite a new deal Rangers could still sell this summer) Moult may be seen as a replacement for him, too.

We will see if there is any fire under this smoke in due course.

  1. Mixed feelings about this. Moult has done nothing at Preston but was effective at Motherwell. Morelos is still on probation for me. Too many sitters missed. Hard worker and can finish but ffs what a miss!! McBurnie might be a better option.

  2. I pretty sure Mark Allan has a substantial wishlist with more to add between now and the next window.
    I honestly have faith in him and this is a real window unlike the winter window, players are out of contract or have a year left.
    Hope we can get at least one marquee signing a proper Nr-10. German Dutch Argentinean Italian no matter!!!

  3. I Don't Agree with The Idea of Bringing Moult Back North 👎
    ...Like Billy Says He's Done Nothing at Preston and there are other Players out there.

    Think we should Hold on to Morelos
    Make Cummings Permanent
    And Give Ryan Hardie a Chance!
    ⚽💙

    1. Agreed
      Even if Morelos goes, we should start next season with Windass, McBurnie, Cummings, Hardie, Dallas, Rudden. With Dorrans also an attacking midefielder who can play second striker, or "in the hole" that should be enough.
      The problem is a lack of someone a bit older, more experienced, like Moult. But if they are good enough to play for us, we can't afford them. I would rather stick with youth than waste time and money on Herrera and Pena type players.
      But in an ideal world, Morelos will stay one more year to play in Europe with us. He would then be a year older, more experienced, more clinical and will go for more money. If he does, we are overloaded with options. Although I don't agree with it, this may be why Hardie has not been offered a new deal.

      Finally, after the deals done in Jaunary and looking at the change in the team since Murty took over, I have faith in our leadership to continue to move us forward

  4. We played a team with a third choice keeper, we were given a goal of a start and they had no right back for all of the game let alone after the sending off and we still couldn't manage even a draw. But we will end up with £11M for Morelos and use the money to buy Moult, sound like a great deal if you believe anyone will pay £11M for someone who can miss from a yard, "no very happy I am" as Yoda would say!!

  5. I believe the team has improved greatly since December and we have moved beyond the level of Moult. The guy can't even get a game for Preston. Let's look elsewhere. Tall, mobile, physical and quick. Any 3 out of 4 be enough.

  7. I liked Moult when at Well but if he can’t cut it at Preston then jog on... Might as well sign Joe Garner again ffs....
