Why Matej Vydra Would Be A Fantastic Signing For Rangers

Why Matej Vydra Would Be A Fantastic Signing For Rangers

Matej Vydra has emerged as a transfer deadline day target for Rangers.

According to Daily Record, the Ibrox club are on the verge of doing a deal to sign the Burnley striker before tonight’s deadline.

He’s only made one start for Burnley this season, appearing a further eight times off the bench for the Clarets.

And as Rangers are in need of some striker reinforcements, it makes sense that Steven Gerrard would go for an out-of-favour Vydra.

Here’s why we think it would be a fantastic signing for Rangers:

His Goal Record

He’s hardly been prolific at Burnley, scoring just twice in 26 appearances for the Turf Moor side. But, when he’s played at his real level, he’s banged the goals in. In the English Championship – playing for Watford, Reading and Derby County – he’s scored 74 goals in 208 appearances. That’s around about a goal in just under every three games.

He’s An International

Vyrdra has 26 caps for Czech Republic, making his debut in 2012 and continuing to play on and off over the last eight years. He’ll no doubt see a move to Rangers as an opportunity to play regularly and get back into the Czech Republic team as a regular starter for Euro 2020.

He’s At The Right Age

At 27, Vydra still has plenty to prove throughout what should be his peak years as a player. If Rangers were to get him permanently, he’s a player they can rely on for the next few years – and that’s the sort of signing they should be making.

Rangers Need Him

At the moment, Gerrard has just Alfredo Morelos and Jermain Defoe as striking options – and the recent suspension of the former and injury to the latter shows he need more options. Vydra would be a quality option to either start alongside either of the two or come off the bench to make an impact.

So, Rangers fans – would you be happy to get Vydra?
