Some Rangers fans on Twitter have called on Kyle Lafferty to join Rangers and mark a double celebration for the big striker.

The Rangers-linked hitman became a father for the first time earlier this week after his wife Vanessa gave birth to their new daughter.

Lafferty, who spent four years at Ibrox and reportedly wants to return [The Record], posted the news of his daughter's arrival on Twitter on Thursday.

 

And some fans of the Gers could not turn down the opportunity to remind him that he would be very welcome on the blue half of Glasgow again.

Here is how they reacted:

Rangers have already seen a £200,000 bid turned down for the Hearts star, with Jambos boss Craig Levein calling the offer 'disappointing' and it remains to be seen whether the Gers return.

He is valued at around £750,000 according to The Record.

Steven Gerrard only has Alfredo Morelos and Umar Sadiq as striking options this season at the moment and although Morelos is tried and tested in Scotland's top flight, Sadiq, a season-long loan signing from Roma, is not and therefore Gerrard should insure himself.
