Rangers set sights on ‘multiple striker signings’

Per a report from Football Insider, Rangers have set their sights on signing multiple strikers in the summer window. The Ibrox club are expected to strengthen their front line ahead of next season and it is claimed that could see multiple forward additions joining in the summer.

One reported target was said to be DAC Dunajská Streda striker Nikola Krstovic but the Montenegrin has now penned a new deal with his current club. Michael Beale’s side were said to have watched the 22-year-old on several occasions and kept track of him over the last 18 months.

Celtic legend backs former teammate for Aberdeen job

Scott Brown has backed former Celtic and Scotland teammate Barry Robson to land the head coach job at Aberdeen on a permanent basis. Robson has been in interim charge of the Dons since Jim Goodwin’s sacking earlier this year and has won his last two matches in charge.

Replying to the endorsement, Robson said: “He’s good mate and when we took over in the interim last time he was really good. I’m glad to see how well he is doing down at Fleetwood as it is not an easy league to be in. I’ll maybe send him a text and thank him.”
