Stoke City striker duo would be ideal signings for Rangers for very different reasons

Rangers should consider both Saido Berahino and Peter Crouch.

Rangers are still rebuilding under new manager Pedro Caixinha as they bid to try and get to a stage where they are competitive with Scotland's dominant force, Celtic.

Some of their new signings have worked out and others are struggling, and the club will need reinforcements in future transfer windows.

Two players who would be good fits for Rangers, for different reasons, ply their trade at English Premier League side Stoke City.

Veteran Peter Crouch, 36, is in the final stages of his career, but he can prolong it with a move north of the border.

Rangers could be in the market for a veteran forward, with Kenny Miller, 38, recently demoted to the under-20s after a row with Caixinha.

Crouch is yet to start in the league for Stoke this season, although has managed to score twice off the bench. A move to Rangers could enhance his chances of playing regularly.

Another Stoke striker who could benefit from a move to Ibrox is under-performing forward Saido Berahino.

Berahino was linked with a move to Rangers earlier this year by The Sun, before he clinched his move to Stoke.

He is still looking for his first Stoke goal, and if his struggles continue, a move away even on loan could be to his benefit. 

A move to Scotland would be a change of scenery for Berahino and could help him re-discover his confidence, and the form which once saw him valued at £25 million.
