According to the Scottish Sun, Rangers have rejected Burnley’s offer of £1 million plus defender,Andre Bikey for ex-Clarets striker Kyle Lafferty.

The Northern Ireland international was a £3.25 million signing from Burnley in June 2008 and he didn’t exactly endear himself to the Clarets faithful back then after dissing the club in the Irish press. But would we welcome him back now or more to the point why would the ambitious striker want to even contemplate a return to the Championship?

Lafferty was bang on form for the Gers last season netting eight goals in their final ten games. The goal tally also included a hat-trick in a 5-1 win against Kilmarnock which helped confirm Rangers as SPL Champions for the third consecutive season!

The 23 year old striker would surely prefer to stay at Ibrox though and it is thought new Rangers gaffer, Ally McCoist sees Lafferty as a key part of his long-term plans. Well I wonder what Kyle is thinking at this moment in time when he reads the speculation and spends a month recovering from his groin injury?
