Let me fire some names here to jog some memories. Billy Dodds, Rod Wallace, Mark Hateley and Nacho Novo. The common denominator here is that when we signed these strikers, not one of them was the big name expected or wanted by our supporters at the time. They were underwhelming signings as the support were after household names with bigger fees. Each of these guys went on to score barrowloads of goals for us. So maybe the signing we need doesn't need to be a Solanke or a Defoe but just someone who can do it in our league on a consistent basis. Louis Moult might not have set the heather on fire at Preston but may be the ideal option. He would be available at an affordable price and wouldn't command silly wages. The lack of flair would be offset by the wingers we have at our disposal. Couple this with a strong midfield and tighter defencr and we may actually achieve something this year. One player who consistently takes the chances in tight games will be the difference between challenging for trophies this year or not.

Mark Hately was an underwhelming signing?

Comparable to Louis Moult at Preston?

We tried to get the big man when he was at Milan and signed him off Monaco when they were one of the top teams in Europe. I was absolutely chuffed when we got him.

Big lafferty would bang them in for us.

lol mark hately was an england international and had played for big clubs.

25 Jul 2018 19:49:34
What I'd give for a Billy dodds now.

I know tell me about it Geronimo At this minute we can only dream of signing this type of calibre Louis Moult shouldn't be used under the same breath as Mark Hately! No comparisons!

Swap Wallace for Lafferty and bring in Moult. Both proven spl scorers and for less than 1M. Let’s Go 🔴⚪️🔵.

25 Jul 2018 22:14:59
Sorry. Hately was a big signing for us. All of them, including Hately, would struggle to score as many in this Rangers team, however.

25 Jul 2018 22:39:59
Alex Ferguson tried and failed to sign Mark Hately for Man Utd. An English international, he was hardly uninspiring!

25 Jul 2018 22:50:26
No lafferty. Had his chances. Big sadiq hasn't had chance to show us what he's got and with afield back fit crossing balls in for the big man who knows plus Lassana Coulibaly still to get a run out let's give Stevie's team a chance before we start shouting about bringing back ex players near the ends of their careers. Let's give this team a chance. let's GO.

Del are you serious? Mark Hateley was an England international played with AC Milan then monaco and you think that was underwhelming?
Not sure you've thought that one through bud.

Mark Hateley was struggling badly with injuries when we signed him it was seen as a gamble and yes some of the support felt it was too much of a punt signing an aging crock.
