Rangers confirmed interested in England U20 striker

Sky Sports today confirmed Rangers are seeking Stoke City’s Tyrese Campbell, but face predictable competition from Celtic who also want the 20-year old striker.

Cross-border rules will allow either Old Firm side to secure the forward for around £300,000 or they can wait till the summer when he’s out of contract, but it’s more likely Rangers would be keen to get him now, given Celtic just signed Polish forward Klimala for around £4M.

Campbell’s contribution this season hasn’t been outstanding, with just four goals in 17, but his career tally in the PL 2 plus League One is more promising with an overall of 48 in 106.

This is, however, a notably lower standard than the Championship so Rangers are taking a bit of a risk, even a low-cost one, that the SPL will get the best out the hitman.

The son of former Everton striker Kevin, Tyrese is probably about ready to take the next stage in his career, but we can’t help feeling Celtic are only interested in order to stop Rangers.

Some things never change.

  1. We better get out fingers out of our backsides if we want to take this title this season. When we start losing players through injuries and suspensions in the second half of the season, we are fecked!!
    Whilst the beggars are getting their cheque book out to secure 9 IAR, we seem complacent in thinking the squad has enough quality to win the league.
    We need another striker. Defoe and Stewart are not the answer to getting through the parked buses that lie ahead.
    If anything happens to Davis and Morelos, then we will struggle. Yes we need to off load dead wood, but to win this league, we also need the quality to cover said injuries and suspensions.
    Last season we shared the same points as the beggars. Its the bread and butter games that cost us dearly!!!
