Lucky escape; Aaron Holloway hasn't scored a league goal since Rangers links

Fleetwood Town's Aaron Holloway scores his sides first goal

The formerly Rangers linked 24-year-old may have played for two different clubs this season but he hadn't opened his account for either.

Rangers’ summer transfer dealings didn’t exactly reflect well on the overall strength of the Scottish game. After Josh Windass and Matt Crooks (above) swapped Accrington Stanley’s 5,000 capacity Crown Ground for Ibrox, the Daily Record report that The Gers were leading the chase for another young League Two starlet.

Yet, former Wycombe Wanderers striker Aaron Holloway has done little in the last 10 months to suggest that Rangers will regret missing out on his signature. Signing for Fleetwood Town in the division above instead, the 24-year-old managed just one league start before being shipped out after half a season.

Now with Oldham Athletic, Holloway’s goal draught shows no signs of abating. In 16 league appearances across 2016/17, he is yet to find the back of the net.

Even Joe Garner (below), Rangers’ misfiring summer signing, has at least got four to his name.

As such, Holloway, who can also play at centre-back like a modern interpretation of Dion Dublin, has a lot to do before the end of the season if he wants to remind exactly why Rangers, not to mention Championship clubs a la Rotherham United and Wigan Athletic, were interested, as reported by the Daily Record.

Rangers may be in need of one or two forwards in the summer with Kenny Miller’s contract expiring and Martyn Waghorn attracting attention from down south but, even on their limited budget, they can afford to aim a little higher.
