Why Rangers Fans Are Very Excited About Kyle Lafferty’s Return

Kyle Lafferty is a medical away from returning to Rangers, according to reports.

The Northern Irish striker has been a target for the Ibrox club for much of this summer, with the Gers having a bid for him rejected before finally persuading the Jambos to play ball.

He’s to have a medical at the club today ahead of sealing a return to Govan six years after leaving.

And here’s why fans are very excited about Lafferty’s return:

He may have started this season with just one goal from seven games (it was against Celtic, mind you!), but last term was a very successful one for the Hearts striker. He hit 19 goals in all competitions and was a big part of the Jambos’ revival under Craig Levein.

Lafferty spent four years at Rangers earlier in his career and did everything to get into the good books of the supporters. Not only did he score goals and help them win trophies, he entertained them off the park and even got his own song.
