Some Rangers fans are slaughtering an opposition player who was linked with a move to Ibrox not too long ago.

The Scottish Sun reported earlier this year that Uche Ikpeazu had grabbed the attention of both Rangers and their rivals from the east side of Glasgow.

 

But the Hearts striker has scored just four goals in 24 games since then and failed to trouble the Rangers defence during Sunday's 5-0 win for Steven Gerrard's side at Ibrox.

Yet his performance did not go unnoticed by some of a Rangers persuasion - albeit not in the way Ikpeazu would have wanted.

Ikpeazu has continued to be linked with other clubs - including Celtic - despite the Rangers speculation dying down.

The Gers have had no issues this season at centre-forward, with Alfredo Morelos (25) and Jermain Defoe (13) contributing 38 goals between them.

But a new striker could be in Gerrard's sights as a contingency plan, should he fail to bring Defoe back to Ibrox next term.
