Rangers have already made a host of signings for next season - but fans are starting a Twitter campaign to bring another player into the club.

The Gers have landed Accrington Stanley duo Matt Crooks and Josh Windass, Liverpool teenager Jordan Rossiter as well as Burnley ace Joey Barton.

Now though, reports from African Football suggested that Gor Mahia midfielder Khalid Aucho was a major target for Rangers, despite manager Mark Warburton having already landed four midfielders ahead of next season.

Then, Ugandan international Aucho told Goal that he had received an approach from Rangers and talks were at an initial stage, whilst he admitted that he wanted to make the move to Ibrox this summer.

The 22-year-old midfielder, who has 16 caps for Uganda, has earned some comparisons to former Celtic ace Victor Wanyama, and Rangers fans have decided in the last 24 hours to throw their support behind the deal with a comical Twitter campaign.

Supporters took to social media to make jokes about Aucho's potential arrival with the hashtag #SignKhalidAucho, suggesting that he would dominate Celtic's Scott Brown, and some even joked that they wouldn't watch Rangers unless they sign Aucho.

To add to the hilarity, Aucho's club in Kenya, Gor Mahia joined in, claiming that he's 'the best DM' before adding the hashtag themselves - and now there will be great expectations on Aucho should his move to Rangers go through this summer, with fans already making him into something of a cult hero.
