Rangers should raid Warburton's old side Brentford for Vibe

Rangers could be busy in the January transfer window.

Rangers interim manager Graeme Murty is seen during the Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership match between Rangers and St Johnstone at Ibrox Stadium on December 16, 2017 in Glasgow, Scotland.

Interim Rangers manager Graeme Murty is likely to be busy in the January transfer window if he remains in the Ibrox dugout that long, following Saturday's dismal 3-1 loss to St. Johnstone.

Despite starting the likes of Josh Windass, Alfredo Morelos and Daniel Candeias, Rangers lacked any kind of attacking bite on home soil and it will have convinced Murty that a new number 10 is needed.

West London Sport claim Mark Warburton's old side Brenford are willing to offload versatile attacker Lasse Vibe in January, with his contract set to expire at the end of the season.

Vibe, who joined Brentford about a month after Warburton had left to join Scottish giants Rangers, has scored an impressive 32 Championship goals in 91 games - a ratio of one in less than every three games.

Preferring to play up front, the 30-year-old Dane is capable of playing in the number 10 role and out wide in either a 4-2-3-1 system or as part of a front three in a 4-3-3 formation.

He has been in and out of Dean Smith's side this time around, making 13 appearances and scoring two goals but with his contract up at the end of the season, Brentford are reportedly willing to let him leave.

His attacking tenacity, eye for goal and experience in the Championship is just what Rangers need as they look to take advantage of Celtic's 4-0 loss to Hearts by creating a title race in Scotland's top tier.

Sitting five points behind Brendan Rodgers' side, Rangers are now in third with Aberdeen in second but adding 11-time Denmark international Vibe to Murty's squad would give the Gers every chance of catching their Old Firm rivals.
