Rangers FC miss out on deal for West Brom starlet


Rangers FC have big plans for the coming season.

Celtic have dominated Scottish football in recent years but the hope at Ibrox is that this is about to change.

Neil Lennon's side have hopes of making it 10-straight league titles - something that Steven Gerrard's side are determined to stop.

If they're to do that, Rangers will need to strengthen in the transfer market - something that they're already showing signs of doing.

Unfortunately one deal seems to have got away from them.

Rangers had been interested in a move for West Brom's Rayhaan Tulloch.

The 19-year-old has long been a target for Steven Gerrard who has been monitoring him since January this year.

Tulloch's future was in doubt after stalling on a new deal at The Hawthorns, with suggestions that a move to Scotland could have been on the cards.


However any hopes of a deal have now been put to bed with the youngster penning a four-year deal with the Baggies.

That could see Tulloch playing in the Premier League next term, with West Brom firmly on track to secure a return to the top flight.

That will be a big blow for Rangers who are keen to bring in another forward this summer.

Given the uncertainty over Alfredo Morelos' future, they might need one.

According to Calcio Napoli, as quoted by Glasgow Live, the striker's representatives have offered him to Italian side Napoli.

Morelos has been widely linked with a move away from Rangers this summer with interest mounting.


Whether a move away will materialise remains to be seen, though, with the Scottish side likely to want to keep him around.

GIVEMESPORT'S Phil Spencer says...

This is certainly one to keep an eye on.

Alfredo Morelos has been outstanding for Steven Gerrard's side but if the interest in him turns into something more substantial, the club will need a suitable replacement.

If the striker does have his sights set on a move, then it's in the club's best interests to move him on and attract a big a fee as possible.

The last thing that Steven Gerrard needs is a player who isn't fully committed to the cause at Ibrox.

If Rangers are to challenge for the title next term then they'll need everyone on their game - most of all their star striker.
