The 23-year-old is a very good striker and was in good form for Walsall during the 2015-16 campaign.

The Wales international’s goals helped the Saddlers finish in the League One playoffs last season.

Bradshaw would be a good signing for Rangers, who won the Scottish Championship title last season and will feature in the Scottish Premiership during the 2016-17 campaign.
