Rangers must re-enter the race to sign Davie Selke

Glasgow Rangers head into the winter break second in the Premiership table following a stuttering start to the season, which also included Champions League humiliation for Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side.

The Gers finished bottom of their group, losing all their matches and scoring just twice, and this means the club won’t have European football to look forward to after Christmas for the first time in three years.

Van Bronckhorst is certainly under pressure and although their next match isn’t until 15th December, there is no guarantee he will still be in charge.

Until he leaves, the Dutchman will continue to look for future signings, and there is one player that the Ibrox side should go back to after following summer disappointment.

Ditch Alfredo Morelos

German striker Davie Selke turned down Rangers advances in the summer window in order to stay at Hertha Berlin, however, the player has since requested a move in January, with that presenting them with the perfect chance to sign him.

Although Rangers haven’t been linked this time around, they should definitely be considering a move for the 27-year-old, especially with their current goalscoring woes.

Morelos has scored just three times all season while against St Mirren at the weekend, he looked sluggish and devoid of all confidence. Indeed, the Colombian completed only 71% of his passes and failed to have a shot on target during the contest.

The striker’s contract expires at the end of the season, and with every passing performance, it looks as though he is playing his final season at Ibrox.

Selke, who has netted 54 goals in his senior career may not be a proper out-and-out centre forward, however, he could be the perfect foil for Antonio Colak, handing Rangers the chance to ditch Morelos in the process.

With 35 Bundesliga goals, he has proven ability in one of the best leagues in Europe. The German was even dubbed a “strike sensation” by the official Bundesliga Twitter account and a move on that evidence certainly makes a lot of sense for Rangers.

How many signings did Rangers make in the last summer window?

Perhaps in the Scottish top flight, he could recapture his best form and give the Light Blues some attacking impetus that they have been sorely lacking so far this term.

The next six weeks will be interesting from a transfer viewpoint, and Ross Wilson must re-enter the race to sign the Hertha Berlin forward.
