15-goal forward from English club is perfect Rangers replacement for Miller


It seems certain that Kenny Miller will be leaving Rangers very soon and a new striker will be needed to replace him at Ibrox.

The 38-year-old may never play for the Gers again after a widely reported bust-up with Graeme Murty, so the club will need to look for a replacement hitman.

One player who seems an ideal candidate is former Motherwell striker Louis Moult, who is now at English Championship club Preston North End.

The 25-year-old was a star for the Steelmen in his two-and-a-half years at Fir Park, scoring 14 goals this season before moving to Deepdale in January.

He also had the knack of scoring against both sides of the Old Firm, and he knocked the Gers out of the Betfred Cup semi-final in October thanks to two assured finishes.

Moult hasn’t had the best of times so far at Preston since moving south of the border, scoring only one goal so far, and the Gers have been credited with an interest in bringing him back to Scotland, with the Daily Mail reporting that the Light Blues are considering a summer move for the player.

In all competitions this season for both Preston and Motherwell, Moult has scored 15 goals in 32 appearances.

The situation with Miller has meant that the situation has escalated rapidly, and Gers director of football Mark Allen should move to get a deal done to bring the player to Ibrox as soon as the summer transfer window opens.
