Could 31 cap Colombian international come to Ibrox?

With the January window fast upon us, Steven Gerrard is actively seeking new recruits in some key positions.

While we posited Eros Grezda for striker, nevertheless Rangers still only have one truly reliable recognised hitman up top in the form of Alfredo Morelos, with Kyle Lafferty’s importance unclear and his use fleeting.

It is evident another reliable body is needed in that area, and a 30+ cap Colombia international could not only fit the bill, but help get even more out of Alfredo Morelos.

Dayro Moreno is currently a free agent, but his career record is extremely impressive – almost one in two goals over the course of a 15-year senior career, and aged 33, he has a tonne of experience to help those around him.

His career has mostly been in South America but he had a reasonable spell in Europe with Steau as well, and he’s widely regarded as a reliable goalscorer with a usual market value of around £2M.

Currently, as said, he’s a free agent – but it’s that connection with Alfredo Morelos which could help pave the way to a possible switch to Rangers.

If the wage agreed can be suitable, could Rangers do worse than a 130-goal Colombian international with over 30 caps to his name?

Yes, yes we could.


  1. Honestly dont know why we brought Laff,back,was it because he scored against celic,hes pish !!!

    1. I agree. There was a clamour because he is an ex-player NBC's and he scored against Celtic.
      Not good enough to challenge Morelos. Moreno doesn't look like the answer at that age. Boydchenko would be better, proven record in Scotland, but also too old, as is Ally McCoist, so no to all imho

    2. We bought Lafferty because we desperately needed 2 strikers as the window drew to a close and we hadn't identified even one.

  2. I agree with the above comment that I dont get it why we signed Lafferty back after scoring against smelic,why is Andy Dallas not getting a chance?? Or any of the other youth players instead of forking out Even more £ on foreign players who cannot hack our physical league.

  3. What is going on with Kyle? It could work. Plus, it would be good for Alfredo to have a countryman, over here with him. If he can bang them in, for the points and only 2M, it's a yes, from me. Seems good value. Best to do our due diligence first, though.

  4. Wouldnt bring this guy in.
    Too oldish/Untested in UK

    Bringing Laff Back I Think had been a Mistake ...Sadly

    Also.I Agree with 'Unknown'
    We could be using Dallas or Rudden or Hardie or Even Mabuyde?

  5. When strikers get to that age they generally lose a yard of pace that makes the difference between scoring and being tackled. There are a few exceptions but if this guy was one of them he wouldn't be unattached. Avoid.

  6. Seemingly Liverpool have now stated that they will allow Dominic Solanke to leave on loan in the January window. SG would possibly make an attempt at having him for the 2nd half of the season. That would give us some more much needed strength up front. I agree with Rob , if this guy Moreno is as decent as proclaimed then I think he’d have been snapped up quickly.
