McKay shares his optimistic scoring target at Rangers next season

By Alex Taylor

Rangers star Barrie McKay has set out his personal targets for next season.

The 21-year-old can play as both a winger and a striker and, despite an influx of new faces at Ibrox this summer, will be hoping to feature regularly in Mark Warburton’s side.

The youngster scored nine goals and provided 13 assists in 48 appearances last season as he played a key part in Rangers’ promotion push.

“We have a big season coming up and we believe we can challenge for the title,” McKay told the Scottish Sun. “We’re Rangers and we’re looking to win every competition we go into.

“My target was to get double figures so I was one shy and I want to score more goals this season. When you’re scoring people remember you more, the assists go under the radar a bit.”

The Gers are preparing for life back in the Scottish Premier League after spending four years away from the top tier of Scottish football.

McKay’s target will be regarded as optimistic given the higher standard of football in the top flight and the increased competition for places in the Ibrox squad.

Preparations have already begun and the manager has been quick to bolster his squad for the upcoming season, with the likes of Joey Barton, Niko Kranjcar and Jordan Rossiter all arriving at the club.

With these additions Warburton will be hoping they can challenge Old Firm rivals Celtic for the title next season.
