Rangers fans aren’t keen on the idea of bringing Hearts forward Uche Ikpeazu to Ibrox this summer after watching him in action during today’s Scottish Cup semi-final at Hampden.
Ikpeazu was linked with a move to Steven Gerrard’s squad at the start of April, with both the Gers and Celtic said to be keen on the player making a switch to Glasgow.
On the face of it he had a decent showing today against Inverness CT in the national semi, scoring the opening goal and winning the penalty that led to Hearts’ third in a 3-0 victory.
Loads of Rangers supporters though reckon he doesn’t possess the right kind of footballing skill to be effective in the final third.
With Jermain Defoe and Alfredo Morelos already at the club, we are well stocked for forwards, but would Ikpeazu give us a different kind of physical option if Gerrard’s starting match plan wasn’t breaking a team down?
These fans took to Twitter to discuss his potential signing…
Ikpeazu isn’t the type of player that’s going to win us the title

Apart from the goal Ikpeazu looks terrible.

If Rangers sign him I'll be demanding a reduction on my ST.
Touch of a lamppost

Cart horse. Gers shouldn't go near him.

Ikpeazu is a walking example of Craig Leveins management style ????

That's ikpeazu is pish, really hope we don't buy him.

Big Ikpeazu is full of endeavour but when you ask him to play football, by god you can see why he’s been a Cambridge player in the not-so-distant past.
