Rangers have found their next star striker after source's Luis Palma reveal - pundit

Frank McAvennie has suggested Antonio Colak is the answer to the striker “problem” at Rangers.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Celtic striker claimed that the Gers do not have the money to spend on a new goalscorer.

As quoted by The Sun (27 May), Colak vowed to “keep the No.9 shirt” and “fight” for his position as the go-to striker at Ibrox.

The 29-year-old insisted that he is able to score goals and wants to help the team as much as he can next season.

The Gers have already lost their all-time European top goalscorer as Alfredo Morelos departs the club following the expiration of his Ibrox contract.

On 30 May, Football Insider revealed that Michael Beale’s side have expressed an interest in a deal for FC Utrecht striker Tasos Douvikas.

This site also reported yesterday (31 May) that a deal for Aris Saloniki striker Luis Palma is now unlikely.

When asked if Colak is ready to fill the striker void at Rangers, McAvennie told Football Insider:I think he will score goals but I do not think he is prolific.

He will have to be prolific because I do not think they have the money to go and buy a striker. Before he got injured he was doing well, he kept Morelos out the team and was doing alright.

You have got to keep yourself fit and keep yourself playing and it might be the answer to their problem if he can step up to the mark it is just whether he can do it every week.
