Former Rangers manager Alex McLeish says he is intrigued to find out whether Millwall forward Abdul Abdulmalik can be a success if he makes the switch to Ibrox this summer.
Both the Light Blues and Arsenal have been linked with the 18-year-old in recent days and, if the Gers are interested in the teenager, McLeish claims the club’s recruitment department would have done their due diligence on the player:
“The network of scouts, they must know there are special youngsters out there, and that’s a possibility with this Millwall kid. It could be a great coup, we have seen over the past few years some young players moving and moving for big money.”
Abdulmalik’s contract with Millwall expires at the end of this month so Rangers could well snap up the striker for a nominal fee. Lions boss Gary Rowett seemed pretty resigned to losing the youngster a few days ago, with his agent said to be keen on moving his client away from the Den.
Swansea City are the team that have been most active in trying to sign the Englishman but, after the Welsh club had a bid knocked back, the Gers will be confident that they can tempt him to move north of the border, as long as Arsenal stay out of the picture.
