Rangers manager Steven Gerrard eyeing loan move for 27-year-old forward – report

Andre Gray

Rangers are interested in signing Andre Gray from Watford in the summer transfer window, according to The Glasgow Evening Times.

It has been reported that Gers manager Steven Gerrard wants to secure the services of Gray on a season-long loan deal from the Premier League this summer.

The Glasgow giants are reportedly considering an approach for the 27-year-old striker, with Rangers aiming to challenge bitter Old Firm rivals Celtic for the Scottish Premiership title next season.

Gray has been on the books of Watford since the summer of 2017 when he joined from Burnley for a reported transfer fee of £18 million.

The striker has made 13 starts and 14 substitute appearances in the Premier League for the Hornets this season, scoring seven goals and providing two assists in the process.

During the 2017-18 campaign, the 27-year-old made 16 starts and 15 substitute appearances in the league, scoring five goals and providing two assists in the process.

Good signing for Rangers?

Gray has not been a huge success at Watford, but the 27-year-old is a very good striker who could be a smart signing for Rangers on a loan deal.

If Alfredo Morelos leaves Ibrox in the summer transfer window, then Gray and Jermain Defoe would be competing and perhaps even complementing each other in the Rangers attack.

The signing of Gray will also make Celtic sit up and take notice, and the Hoops will know that they will be facing stiff competition from the Gers for the Scottish Premiership title next season.
