News Report: Clement Agreed moves to sign fantastic star who’ll score lots of goals’ for Rangers….

Former Rangers captain Lee McCulloch is confident that Hearts and Scotland striker Lawrence Shankland ‘would score lots and lots of goals’ if Philippe Clement brought him to Ibrox.

With the exception of that disappointing stint at Belgian outfit Germinal Beerschot, Lawrence Shankland has hit the net at just about every club he’s played for, and at quite the rate too.

There were 28 goals for Hearts last season, and a further seven this already. Shankland found a way past Jack Butland – not an easy task – during last week’s Scottish Premiership trip to Ibrox, and McCulloch is confident that the Scotland international would be even more prolific alongside when paired with the creative talents of Todd Cantwell, Abdallah Sima, James Tavernier and co at Rangers.

“I think he is more than good enough to be starting for Rangers every week,” the one-time Gers skipper tells PLZ Soccer. “I think he would score lots and lots of goals.

He is a penalty box striker. I just see Shankland scoring every week for Rangers, I really do. A fantastic player with a great attitude.”

According to reports, Rangers are already planning to back Philippe Clement in the winter window, a new centre-forward one of the priorities despite limited funds following a summer of heavy spending.

Shankland is unlikely to break the bank, however, with his Hearts contract expiring in less than two years’ time.

Ibrox hero ‘so impressed’ with Scotland striker

“I was so impressed with Lawrence Shankland (at Ibrox),” adds another former Rangers captain, Barry Ferguson. “Take away the goal. His link-up play, build-up play… I think as he’s got older he’s got better.

“I would be enquiring and asking; ‘how long has he got left on his contract? What would it cost (to get him)?’

I am not saying Lawrence Shankland is going to score 30 goals in Europe or get you further in the Europa League. But he is a very good football player, and I would be looking at that and thinking to myself; ‘is there a possibility that could happen

Rangers certainly didn’t find goals hard to come by in midweek, Danilo, Cyriel Dessers and Sam Lammers all scoring in a thumping 5-0 win at Dundee.
