Zak Rudden has joined League Two side Plymouth Argyle, and some Rangers fans believe it could mean more incomings at Ibrox this summer.
The 19-year-old striker has made the six-month loan switch to Plymouth having had a goal-laden season at Falkirk last campaign. The forward banged in 13 goals in 35 games, not bad when you consider the Bairns were relegated to the third tier of Scottish football.

With Kyle Lafferty being released, some had thought that Rudden may be Steven Gerrard’s third-choice striker this season. Yet with his temporary departure confirmed, the Gers look slightly thin on the ground behind Jermain Defoe and Alfredo Morelos.
This has got the fans wondering whether the youngster’s loan move could pave the way for another forward coming in before the end of the window. One name that’s been linked is Kilmarnock’s Eamonn Brophy, but the fans weren’t receptive to that idea at all.
Here’s how they reacted on Twitter as Rudden was sent out on loan again…
It definitely leaves us short in case of suspension or injury of our two strikers. Hopefully we’ll get another striker in before the window closes.

I’ll be honest wouldn’t mind brophy as a third choice who else would want to sit behind Morelos and Defoe who’s actually as good as them

Does this mean we are looking for a striker to join the squad in this transfer window…
Just a squad player required as back up as we have our first picks…
SG referenced Rudden previously as our back up when asked about buying another striker….
So now what ?

Surely we must be looking to bring in another forward ?

Hope he does well. I hoped he would be our third striker but it looks like been injured pre season has ruined his chances of that.
