Herbie Kane’s fine form will have Rangers coming back in transfer hunt


Herbie Kane’s fine form will have Rangers coming back in transfer hunt

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard wanted his former under-18 star to join him at Ibrox.

When Rangers appointed Steven Gerrard in the summer they found themselves immediately linked with a host of current and former Liverpool players. With good reason. Gerrard is a club legend at Anfield and has played with a host of top players on Merseyside. He also managed the Liverpool under-18 team, meaning he knew plenty of the young talent at Melwood.

In the end, Gerrard did bring some of those names to Ibrox. Ryan Kent and Ovie Ejaria both arrived on loan from Liverpool. Meanwhile, former team-mate Jon Flanagan also arrived at Ibrox.

But one player Rangers failed to get hold of was Herbie Kane.

In the summer, the talented 19-year-old midfielder headed to Doncaster Rovers on a six-month loan deal. However, as reported by The Sheffield Star, the Doncaster boss Grant McCann confirmed that Rangers were also keen on his signature. However, he confirmed Liverpool would not sell, with Rangers wanting him permanently and not on loan.


Based on his current form, Rangers were right to try and bring him to Glasgow.

Kane scored two goals at the weekend for Doncaster in the FA Cup. The second strike was a wonderful effort from range which will no doubt be in the running for goal of the round.

Kane has been an ever-present at the Keepmoat Stadium this term and his tireless displays have earnt rave reviews. Rangers will surely be keeping tabs on the player considering how hard he will find it to make it into the Liverpool set-up.

If he keeps up this sort of form, another move from Gerrard would be welcomed.
