Mystery surrounds circumstances of key Rangers man


Mystery has begun to surround the circumstances of star summer striker signing Kyle Lafferty.

As fans know the Northern Ireland international was brought in as a big-name hitman up front, expected to challenge Alfredo Morelos for a place and become a mainstay of the first XI. However the reality of his contribution has not exactly met this anticipation.

Barely a bit-part player, Lafferty has struggled to get game time at all, finding himself mostly benched and only infrequently coming on as a sub.

The issue with his country’s last international break certainly remains prominent, but sadly we have to touch on alleged issues in his private life, which we won’t go into in any depth, and wonder just how deeply they are currently affecting him.

There are also some other separate allegations circulating around about him, which similarly will not be met with any insight here, and we are a touch concerned his focus is not as on his job as it could be.

Lafferty has a few goals (four in fact), but his appearances have been damningly restricted by Steven Gerrard and he’s made in total a stunning two starts since he joined – we bear in mind he has had some injury issues as well, but simply put we’re more than a little concerned about the return for the reported £600,000.

We know Kyle is a troubled lad, and equally he’s one of us who plays for the team and by no means is this article an attack on either his personality, lifestyle or ability – we just want to see him delivering what we know he can and hopefully a cessation of the possible baggage that may or may not be going on with him.

Good luck!


  1. Whatever is happening, it needs resolved, for the good of the club. Lafferty is far too good a player, to be idling on the bench. What's best for the club, is goals and points. Lafferty scores goals.

  2. It's not too late for a Lafferty or indeed many players who haven't reached their best this season. There are over 30 games left this season to make an impression. I believe every single player is well capable of delivering better. If we can get most of them to do so consistently then we could see a big improvement.

  3. For God's sake give us a break! There's no big story here. Morelos is number 1:Lafferty was bought as a number 2: Morelos was always going to be number! Rangers only play one up top and Morelos has been brilliant: absolutely no reflection on Lafferty. Who, by the way has had a series of injuries. So… no big exclusion:Lafferty remains a great signing but he is in reserve:he won't replace Morelos as No 1 but he's still a great signing.

  4. Only 2 Starts and got 4 Goals
    …Pretty Decent Considering…

    This Reminds me of The Murty/Cummings situation apart from the fact Murty never bought JC

    When Laff Plays : Something Happens!
    He Either Scores or Assists or Both

    …SG, Get Him Some Games!

    Gotta be Honest not liking the way SG is Treating Laff 👊

  5. He will come back, there has been similar instances before in his life which he has bounced back from. Some people struggle with extra time on their hands. Hopefully the club are looking into that and keeping his mind occupied.
    A frustrating angle would be that we would have undoubtedly gubbed Aberdeen at Hampden with Kyle in the team but we need to keep looking forward.

  6. Kyle Lafferty is a Rangers Man through and through he will always give his best when either in the team or called forward . He will be the decider against the Rotten Mob coming from the bench to net the winner to win 55.

    • Lolol keeryoot aye smoke na mate ….Slightly tongue in cheek but …he does love a goal against that shower WATP
