Video: Craig Levein Comments Suggest Kyle Lafferty to Rangers is On

Craig Levein‘s comments this morning suggest Kyle Lafferty to Rangers is on.

The Hearts manager spoke to the media earlier ahead of his side’s trip to Dunfermline in the Betfred Cup on Saturday and he was inevitably asked about the Ibrox club’s interest in the Northern Irishman.

Rangers have already had a bid for Lafferty rejected, but with 15 days of the summer transfer window remaining you’d expect they would return with another offer.

And Levein’s comments this morning suggest that isn’t far away, confirming that Hearts and Rangers are in talks about a deal that could take the former Gers man back to Ibrox.

Speaking this morning, Levein said:

You have to think that there’s a realistic chance of Lafferty going then, don’t you?

He spent four seasons at Rangers earlier in his career, scoring 38 goals in 138 appearances before leaving to sign for Sion in Switzerland.

Lafferty has been impressive since signing for Hearts last summer and now Steven Gerrard is looking to sign him to bolster his attacking options for what could be a big season.
