Rangers considering big-money January move for £3M man – sources

Rangers have been linked with a January interest in Aberdeen’s on-fire striker Sam Cosgrove.

The 22-year old, signed for a modest £500,000 by the Dons, is currently contracted to 2022, meaning any move for the SPL’s current second top striker would cost considerably more, especially given the lucrative links this summer to Serie A giants Lazio.

The former Wigan striker has an outstanding career record, with 33 in 94, with 4 in the league this season already in 6, and of course last season despite Aberdeen’s lowly fourth-placed finished he still nabbed 16 in 30 for Derek McInnes’ men.

The fact is this 22-year old, in a team sitting in a distant third in the table, is putting away chances, and Rangers are said to be keeping tabs on him as a possible January addition if he keeps this form up.

In terms of transfer fee, he’d likely cost in the region of £3M, such is Aberdeen’s deep friendship with Rangers and keenness to do business following the pain-free signing of Kenny McLean (!)

And with Lazio’s interest well-documented, the former Carlisle striker’s sudden rise to the top of the Scottish game means Rangers would have their work cut out to add that third striker, following the apparent failure of Greg Stewart to impress and the failure overall of the now-departed Kyle Lafferty.

Few Rangers fans would object to the clinical number 9 coming to Ibrox, but it wouldn’t be on the cheap.

  1. He may have scored 33 goals in 94 games but a good number of those goals came from the penalty spot, including 2 in midweek. Take those away and his stats are far from impressive. He also produced just 2 assists in 35 games last season and none so far this season.

  2. If they are rejecting bids of 6m for mckenna there is no way that they will accept a bid of 3m for their top striker

  3. Not for me. Firstly that low life Aberdeen wouldn't deal with us and secondly I wouldn't give £3m to that pile of sh*te.
    Can you imagine signing him and getting a game before Morelos there would be mutiny on the terraces.
    Aberdeen the Kings of the Hammerthrowers and low block, this is their cup final playing against Rangers, so be prepared for another slog. 3pts is all that matters.
    SPFL any chance of a WWF referee officiating today.

  4. I think you`ve discovered that most WOULD object to us signing this big( time for a poll perhaps) .It is another fanciful rumour that ,surprise surprise ,surfaces when we are due to play them.It won`t happen for a number of reasons , we won`t pay the kind of money they will ask from us ,he wouldn`t want to come and be 3rd choice and he is not good enough ( he won`t get the penalties for us so that will half his total ).He`s another SPFL donkey that is way below the standard we want .

  5. Friendship? I stopped reading at that point. Whether or not Sam Cosgrove is or isnt good enough….friendship? Have you left planet earth?

    They hate us, to be fair we hate them. At least Celtic earn respect in terms of their playing, Aberdeen will always be spiteful (being nice there).

    £3m to a rival club….not a chance

  6. Well there's your evidence yesterday. No penalties, no goals, no assists, no impact, no thanks!
    Look beyond the goals and take out the penalties.
