Rangers linked with a move for former Gers striker Daniel Cousin


With the club selling Nikica Jelavic, Steven Naismith out for the season and Kyle Lafferty injured, Rangers have a lack of attacking options with only David Healy the out-and-out striker at the club.

Cousin’s agent Willie McKay said: “Daniel had talks with Ally and everything looks very positive. He has a few offers on the table because of his recent form with Gabon but he is keen on the idea of returning to Rangers. The last time I took him there they won the title, so who’s to say it won’t happen again?”

The Gabon striker’s time at Ibrox was checkered with sendings off for violent conduct, but manager Ally McCoist is reportedly keen on bringing him to the club to alleviate their lack of strikers.

After leaving Rangers to join Hull in a £3 million deal, he exclusively told the Evening Times that he would rather play for Hull City, than continue to play for Rangers even if they win the SPL and reach the last 16 of the Champions League. So it will be interesting to hear what the Rangers fans think of Cousin potentially returning to Ibrox.

He spent a season in the English Premier League before joining Greek outfit Larissa the following year. He left Greece in the summer and has spent the last few months in Gabon playing for FC Sapins in a bid to get fit for the African Cup of Nations.

During his time at Ibrox, Cousin played 44 times with 17 coming on as a substitute, scoring 13 goals.
