Stats

According to Transfermarkt.co.uk, Shankland scored 24 goals and provided two assists in 26 Scottish Championship appearances for Dundee United last season.

During the 2018-19 campaign, the 24-year-old scored 24 goals and provided five assists in 31 Scottish Championship matches for Ayr United, according to Transfermarkt.co.uk.

Good signing for Rangers?

Described as a “natural goalscorer” by former Rangers winger Neil McCann on BBC Sportsound last month, Shankland is a very good striker, but he does not have any experience in the Scottish Premiership.

That will be a risk, but having said that, Morelos did not have any experience in the Scottish Premiership before he joined the Gers, and he turned out to be a fine striker.

If Morelos leaves this summer, then Rangers have to find a suitable replacement, as they simply cannot let their bitter Old Firm rivals Celtic from winning the Scottish Premiership title for the 10th season in a row.
