Lafferty: Ibrox switch expected
Rangers appear to have won the race to sign Burnley striker Kyle Lafferty.
Celtic and Wolves have been linked with a transfer for the towering forward, but Gers look set to close a deal this week.
Lafferty is expected to join Walter Smith's side for a fee in the region of £3million.
Should the switch go ahead, Lafferty will become Gers' third striker capture of the summer following the arrivals of Kenny Miller and Andrius Velicka.
Lafferty, 20, scored five goals in 40 games for Championship side Burnley last season.
