Ibrox side Glasgow Rangers should move for Newcastle United forward Haris Vuckic.

Glasgow Rangers boss Mark Warburton has told the Scottish Sun that he is still on the hunt for a striker.

Rangers are expected to bring in Leicester City’s Joe Dodoo in the coming days, but Warburton has suggested that the spending will not stop there.

“We still need one or two more, even if we get Dodoo — possibly a defender and another striker," Warburton said.

“All over the pitch we have competition for places now, which wasn’t the case last season. We’re still looking and we’ll react to opportunities.

“We maybe need one more striker.”

If Rangers are on the hunt for a new forward, their search could be ended by a familiar face at Ibrox.

Newcastle United’s Haris Vuckic spent part of the 2014/15 campaign on loan with Rangers, and he impressed.

Even though the 23-year-old was playing at a lower level, his eight goals in 15 appearances proved his ability to score goals in Scotland.

Vuckic has already admitted to the Chronicle that he is not part of Rafael Benitez’s plans, and tying up a deal for the attacker would be unlikely to prove too problematic.

Vuckic appears to be well out of favour at Newcastle, and is unlikely to feature this season at St. James’ Park.

He could prove a valuable addition for Rangers, however, as Warburton aims to strengthen his front line for the upcoming campaign.
