Rangers fans on Twitter have urged Pedro Caixinha to go out and sign former striker Kyle Lafferty after his latest comments.
The 29-year-old is currently contracted to English Championship side Norwich, but he has failed to start a single league game this season with all of his 12 appearances coming from the bench.
His contract at the Canaries is also set to expire in this coming summer and he has told the Daily Record that he would “jump at the chance” of rejoining Rangers.
“Obviously I’d jump at the chance to go back to Rangers,” said Lafferty.
“Hopefully they would look at me and think I could do a job for them. I have shown what I can do at international level in recent years and I believe I could make a positive impact at the right club for me. I really would jump at the chance to go back to Rangers.”
Lafferty previously played for Rangers for four years between 2008 and 2012 and the Northern Ireland international returned 36 goals in 134 outings for the club.
His previous displays have appeared to of left fond memories for the Rangers fan base and many were keen to see him make his return to the club on social media.
A number of supporters commented that he was better than current striker duo Martyn Waghorn and Joe Garner, while others stated that Lafferty brings goals, which the club is missing.
Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:
Would love Kyle Lafferty back, would score three times as much as what Waghorn and Garner have combined

Veteran Kenny Miller is currently Rangers top scorer with nine Premiership goals this season, while Waghorn and Garner trail him with six and five goals respectively.
The Gers have scored just 48 goals from their 33 league fixtures this season and it is clear the club needs to add some more firepower if they are to improve in the next campaign.
