Should Rangers bring free agent Helder Postiga to Ibrox this summer?

Helder Postiga

The Portuguese would be an excellent addition to the Glasgow Rangers squad.

Pedro Caixinha has his work cut-out at Ibrox this summer, if he is to bring in enough top quality signings to help close the gap on Celtic and Aberdeen in the Scottish Premiership this season.

The Portuguese has endured a tough start to life as Rangers boss, following his side being dumped out of the Europa League at the preliminary qualifying stage by Luxembourg minnows Progres Niederkorn.

One area in particular where the 46-year-old needs to improve is his forward options, but as is so often the case in Scotland, it will be hard for the Gers to complete for strikers of genuine quality, with limited funds at their disposal.

With this in mind, Caixinha will have to be smart in his player recruitment, and might have to look at the free transfer market.

One player who might just appeal to the Rangers boss is Helder Postiga, who is a free agent following his release from Indian Super League side Atlético Kolkata.

The former Porto and Tottenham man is deeply entrenched in experience, after playing at the top level of the game for such a sustained period of time.

The 71 international caps he has earned for Portugal underline his quality, and he would certainly bring a level of guile and class to Rangers' attacking play.

The 34-year-old is no spring chicken, and it could be argued that he is well past his best, but his intelligent movement, and ability to find space means that he is not, nor never has been, reliant on pace.

Postiga would surely be a useful asset to the Gers, and Caixinha should not hesitate to make a move for the free agent this summer.
