Rangers may face the possibility of having to put together a new strike force in the summer if Jason Cummings’ loan deal is not made permanent and super-rich Chinese clubs reignite their interest in Alfredo Morelos.

Eduardo Herrera is likely to be offloaded while veteran Kenny Miller’s contract is up and there are many suggestions that he could retire.

Mark Allen has done wonders and there’s no doubt that the director of football will have a major say in transfers over the summer, regardless of whether Graeme Murty is in charge or whoever else may come in.

One player that absolutely must be on Allen’s shortlist is Wigan forward Will Grigg, who has been in lethal goalscoring form for the Latics over the past few seasons.

Sky Bet have made the Glasgow giants 16/1 second favourites to sign Grigg, 26, in the summer as his eye-catching goal record at the DW Stadium is bound to start attracting glances from clubs who are eager to improving their prowess in front of goal for next season.

The 10-times Northern Ireland international would be perfect for Scottish football and will be one of the frontrunners to win the golden boot in the 2018/19 season if the likes of Morelos and Josh Windass leave Ibrox and Moussa Dembele quits Celtic Park.

In the past three seasons, Grigg has smashed 53 goals in 121 appearances for Wigan, netting 18 in total this term.

He has proved that he can even score against the very best of the Premier League with predatory finishes against Bournemouth, West Ham and Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City in the FA Cup.

Rangers are likely to experience another overhaul in the summer with many ins and outs, but as long as one of those ins is Grigg, then they will be able to continue that upward trend next time out.

In other Rangers news, fans have demanded that the club signs this Old Firm scourge in the summer, claiming he is better than Celtic’s Olivier Ntcham.
