Report: Rangers one of a dozen clubs eyeing 11-goal Brit, soon to be free agent

Glasgow Rangers boss Steven Gerrard is reportedly still interested in Lyle Taylor but the Ibrox side faces competition from 11 other clubs, according to Sky Sports.

The 30-year-old is entering the final few weeks of his current contract at Charlton and will be leaving the English Championship side at the end of June.

Boss Lee Bowyer said earlier this month that his top scorer has decided to protect his career by deciding against extending his contract by a month when the season resumes.

Back in December, Rangers were believed to be keeping a close eye on Taylor’s situation at Charlton, according to Sky Sports.

The same outlet has now claimed that the Ibrox side is still interested in him, but so are the likes of West Brom, Brentford and Bristol City.


English Premier League side Burnley are also said to be keen on Taylor, while Turkish outlet Sivasspor are reported to have made him a lucrative offer.

Taylor joined Charlton from AFC Wimbledon in 2018 and has scored 36 goals in 67 appearances in all competitions, including 11 from 22 league games this season.

While a 30-year-old striker plying his trade in the second tier of English football may not seem like the most exciting proposition for a fanbase on paper, Taylor really has shown he’s a cut above this term, with 11 goals in 22 league games for a side battling relegation.

Given that Rangers could snap the Greenwich-born ace up for absolutely nothing, it’s hardly a huge gamble, and let’s not forget the evergreen Jermain Defoe’s success at Ibrox, not to mention how well the last player to swap Charlton for Rangers has been doing for Steven Gerrard’s side.

However, Rangers face a huge battle on their hands, given how much competition there is, and so they’ll need to move quickly and decisively.
