Rangers confirm return of Kyle Lafferty to Ibrox

NI International Kyle Lafferty returns to Rangers

Northern Ireland International striker, Kyle Lafferty signed a deal to return to his former club Rangers yesterday afternoon after a six-year hiatus from the club.

Rangers reportedly had several offers turned down for the striker but yesterday he finally committed for the next two years to the Scottish giants. Rangers manager ex Liverpool striker Steven Gerrard was very keen to have the Enniskillen at the Ibrox to bolster his attack force. It is thought Lafferty will be featured in the starting eleven tonight for Rangers Europa League clash against FC Ufa. Lafferty spent four years at Rangers from 2008- 2012, making 101 appearances and scoring thirty-one goals in that time.

Lafferty left the club after they were relegated to the fourth division of the Scottish league amidst financial chaos. As a life-long fan of Rangers, it was heart-breaking for him, but he jumped at a second chance to play for the Glaswegian side. Yesterday he told Rangers TV; “Walking out those doors six years ago broke my heart but to be given a second chance to redeem myself I jumped at the chance. I am happy to be home,” he said.

Gerrard made Lafferty his twelfth signing of the season and told the media ““He knows what this club is about. There is no risk in terms of him performing in front of the demands of this crowd and this club, and the expectation. I believe we’re a young squad, so he brings vital experience to us. He’s a Rangers nut. He is desperate to come, and I think he ticks all the boxes that I’m looking for, what I want from a frontman,”

It is expected Lafferty will make his debut tonight in the Europa League clash against FC UFA.
