In Focus: Vaulks is a realistic target that could improve Rangers

As reported by The Daily Mail, Rangers are lining up a move for Rotherham United midfielder Will Vaulks after the club’s relegation from the English Championship.

What’s the story?

Pedro Caixinha faces a tough summer of recruitment if he is to turn his squad into one capable of challenging Celtic’s dominance in Scotland but it appears he’s ready to get busy.

The Mail reckon Rangers are in for former Falkirk star Vaulks, who moved to Rotherham United last summer.

The paper say it could take up to £400k to land their man and that the Light Blues face stiff competition from Championship club Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Is he the right kind of player the Gers should be targeting?

Worth a move?

Despite Rotherham’s relegation into League One, Vaulks has been one of the few stand outs for the Millers this season. He’s made 41 appearances for the side despite only moving from Falkirk last summer. At the Bairns he also shone, making close to 150 appearances before departing back to England.

Perhaps importantly he’s a versatile figure, playing in four different positions for Rotherham this season. That’s important at a club like Rangers where resources will be stretched thin this summer.

The Gers badly need reinforcements in midfield and that’s where his preference lies, with a focus on the defensive arts of midfield play.

He’s a realistic target that wouldn’t break the bank and would offer fans hope that they can move past the woeful displays of the likes of Andy Halliday and Josh Windass seen this season.
