Rangers attacker Kyle Lafferty should push for exit if left out against Aberdeen

Kyle Lafferty certainly hasn’t enjoyed a dream season with Rangers since he rejoined the Scottish giants last summer.

He has been the third-choice striker throughout the campaign and made 30 appearances across all competitions, where he completed 90 minutes on just six occasions.

But surely the window has opened for the 31-year-old at the weekend when the Gers host Aberdeen at Ibrox on Sunday in the league.

 

Alfredo Morelos remains sidelined through suspension, while manager Steven Gerrard (official Twitter) has confirmed that Jermain Defoe is an injury doubt due to a tight muscle.

Lafferty seems the most obvious replacement to come into the side and if he does it would be his first league start of 2019.

The Northern Ireland international is still under contract with the Light Blues until 2020 and could do with a lift at the end of this season to give him hope going into next year.

But if Gerrard does decide to leave him out of the XI again he should have a serious think about his future.

Scott Arfield is a potential option to be pushed into a more advanced role against Aberdeen, while there is youngster Glenn Middleton too.

Lafferty should pack his bags to push for an exit if he can’t be included in a team where the two senior strikers are ruled out.
