Yet another right winger and yet another Colombian has been linked with a move to Rangers, and this time it’s a decidedly unambitious one with next-to-no CV at all.
After the piffle about Borre which a few sites got some weeks of traffic out of, attention has now turned to CD América de Cali’s Santiago Moreno, a 21-year old exercise in ‘unremarkable’.
We don’t know if it’s the ‘dependency’ trend we’ve seen alongside Steven Gerrard ever since he arrived (more on that later), or just lazy journalism, but Moreno, while we’re sure the uncapped at any level attacker is a decent enough player, he’s not quite Skov Olsen or even Kemar Roofe.
His numbers in Colombia are ok, 10 goals in 51 and 7 assists – not incredible at a low level never mind a high one, and we’d rather see him tested in a European league before we made any judgment on how good he’d be at Ibrox, but either way we reckon this is another agent spin, drumming up interest in their client.
Norwich and Leeds are also being linked to the winger, who’s supposed to be worth about £3M, so the press are getting mileage from it.
He’s under contract for another couple of years, but this is one we can’t help feel Rangers can do a lot better than, and our name is just being used to get that move, or get him a better contract.
Of course, maybe we’re wrong, maybe he’s top class and our scouts are geniuses.
Doubt it on this one though.
