Rangers should scrap interest in Hearts striker Uche Ikpeazu

Rangers target Uche Ikpeazu continued a decent season with Hearts at the weekend, as he netted in the Edinburgh derby to rescue a point against Hibernian.

The 24-year-old striker scored a low-driven shot to equalise for Hearts and has been an important player for them this campaign.

He’s made 24 appearances across all competitions this season for them, scoring eight goals and supplying five assists in return.

 

The Sun claimed at the beginning of April that Ikpeazu had emerged on Rangers’ radar ahead of the summer, while Old Firm Rivals Celtic were also credited with interest.

He is believed to be valued at around £1million by Hearts, after a successful first year at Tynecaslte.

Ikpeazu left his mark on the Edinburgh derby at the weekend, but it shouldn’t be enough for Rangers to step up interest in him and they should bin plans to bring him to Ibrox.

The Englishman is a big target man that is handful for defenders with his strength and has settled fairly quickly in Scotland.

He only linked up with Hearts last summer from Cambridge United and most of his career so far has been spent in the lower leagues of England.

Ikpeazu would surely find it too big a step up to join Rangers next season and Steven Gerrard should look for someone a lot more proven to improve his frontline.
