According to Sun journalist Alan Nixon, Rangers forward Ryan Hardie is a wanted man this summer by a club south of the border in the form of Blackpool FC.
The Tangerines are under new ownership at long last and it is clear that they want to mark that with some new signings and a fresh push for promotion from League One.
Hardie, then, could be of interest to them with them apparently wanting a tall forward to lead the line – according to Nixon:
Blackpool. Trying to close a deal for Rangers striker Ryan Hardie. Tall front man they want.

Looking at the attacking options we’ve got, it makes sense that Hardie might well make an exit this summer.
He is not going to get into the side with Jermain Defoe and Alfredo Morelos about that is for sure – so it just remains to be seen what the nature of the deal is that potentially takes him away.
Will it be a loan or a permanent deal? We shall soon see.
