Rangers and Birmingham battle it out over Man Utd legend's son

Rangers and Birmingham look ready to battle it out for the signature of former Manchester United legend Andy Cole’s son Devante.

The 22-year old striker has been in fine form for Jamie Vardy’s old stomping ground in Fleetwood, and this has more than attracted attention from the big guns.

Rangers are looking to massively enhance their striking options, with Alfredo Morelos currently the only real striker of any gravity on the books at Ibrox, and with a bid being considered for Nottingham Forest’s Jason Cummings, this 12 goals in 30 matches striker is seventh best in England’s League One with just under a goal every two matches.

He is considered as being about potential, and with his contract expiring this summer he certainly would not cost the earth, and also has seven goals for England in 17 appearances at youth level.

Cole considers himself a more mobile kind of striker than his father, saying:

"I am different in a lot of ways – I like to play down the centre and peel out wide a bit, getting involved out there and drifting back in. I like to drift a lot more, while my dad was straight down the centre."

If Rangers fend off the competition and he turns out half as good as Andy was, this will have been a shrewd acquisition.

Update 15:40: Everyone at Ibrox Noise would like to send our thoughts and prayers to Nacho Novo, who is currently in hospital battling a heart attack. We wish him a speedy recovery.



  1. If he's anything like his Da were on to a real winner, don't know much about him to be honest!

    Stephanie Nachos good lady just posted this on FB.
    Hi everyone I'm absolutely exhausted and with Nacho I appreciate all the messages but I can't answer everyone sorry ....

    Nacho is stable and speaking to me and hopefully will be home soon 💞

  2. Get well soon Nacho, your one of our own!

  3. Here here get well soon nacho your in the thoughts of all the true fans at ibrox and all the fans around the world .

    very special and loyal guy....

  5. Hope we can get this Lad to Ibrox!
    Get Well Soon Nacho

  6. My thoughts are with Nacho and his family.

    He always gave 100%, please get well again.

  7. Stunned when I heard the news last night. My boys middle name was nearly Novo as he scored in the Cup Final the day my son was born.. Wife was standing her ground but... Get well soon Nacho 🔴⚪️🔵

  8. Regards Devante he could defo be worth a punt. That said how much is he going to cost if he’s contracted till 2020? Can’t work Rangers out we let Hardie go for nowt but then pay a million to a lower league English team 🤔

    1. B73...
      Mark Allan picked him and Goss him and Murty both keen on Murphy,
      Mate it looks like Hardies not good enough for the Rangers if he was he would have been offered a contract same time as the McCorie brothers?!!

    2. That’s the thing he’s not been given a chance to be fair Robbie. Obv Murty doesn’t rate him but I think he’ll comeback and bite us on the arse with another club.. Regards Docherty Jones Cole and others we're linked with shows Allen and the scouting team are doing well.. This Summer window is going to be huge for us 🔴⚪️🔵

    3. B73.
      I honestly cant answer this one, couldn't tell U if hes good or bad never seen him play TBH.
      Perhaps someone is coming through behind him that is more thought of, strange one!!

  9. Hope We Get Cole & Docherty to Ibrox!

    Would like to see Hardie given a chance before he is sold off ✋
