Loads of Rangers fans have been giving their verdict on the latest transfer rumour, as the Gers are reportedly plotting a familiar trick by swooping for NK Osijek striker Mirko Maric.
According to The Express, Maric is viewed as a potential replacement for Alfredo Morelos.
The report claims Morelos is on “thin ice” after his red card in last month’s Old Firm, which was his fifth of the season.
Maric could also be seen as a replacement for Kyle Lafferty, who has made virtually no impact during his second stint at Ibrox.
Maric is only 23, but at 6 ft 2 would add a real physical presence to the Rangers front line and could potentially form a devastating partnership with Morelos if the Colombian is allowed to stay.
That said, the last two signings from Osijek were Eros Grezda and Borna Barisic, so it’s no surprise to see some fans aren’t behind a move that will be the third of its kind in the space of 12 months.
Either way, you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…

Don’t really know much about maric . But to be honest “tapping” into the Croatian market hasnt really worked out so far . Barasic and grezda weren’t even in the squad on Sunday . Katic has been a decent signin but how long did he get left on the bench for until recently .
