Report: Rangers lining up move for Kilmarnock’s Eamonn Brophy

Rangers are reportedly ready to make a move for Kilmarnock striker Eamonn Brophy.

TEAMtalk claim Steven Gerrard is ready to swoop for the Scotland international striker, who has previously interested a number of English clubs such as Leeds United and Derby County.

No move south of the border materialised for Brophy, but the transfer window in Scotland remains open.

Brophy hit 20 goals in his first two seasons with Kilmarnock, 12 of those coming last term, and saw his form rewarded with an international call up in June.

 

The 23-year-old is now apparently on Rangers radar, with Kyle Lafferty having left earlier this summer by mutual consent.

Interestingly Brophy actually used to play for Celtic as a youngster, but left Rangers’ bitter rivals in 2011 to join Hibernian’s youth academy.

TBR’s view

Rangers are a little light up top following the departure of Lafferty.

Gerrard currently only has Alfredo Morelos and Jermain Defoe as his only recognised strikers to call on.

Realistically he needs another option with Europa League football potentially on the cards once again.

Brophy has shown he can be a capable goalscorer in Scotland, and could be great cover and competition for the others at Ibrox.
