Rangers sign strike duo Kemar Roofe and Cedric Itten

Rangers have announced the signings of two strikers, bringing in Kemar Roofe from Anderlecht and Cedric Itten from St. Gallen.

Roofe, 27, returns to the British Isles after a year at Anderlecht, who he joined for €7m from Leeds last year.

But despite seven goals in all competitions, Roofe was hampered by injuries and made available by Anderlecht.

Roofe has joined Rangers for an undisclosed fee and signed a four-year deal.

Itten brings goals

Rangers’ second signing of the day is Swiss international Cedric Itten from St. Gallen.

23-year-old Itten is coming off a 20-goal season for his club and Rangers have paid €3m (£2.7m) for him.

Itten has won two caps for Switzerland, scoring an impressive three goals, and arrives in Glasgow with a good reputation.

St. Gallen will replace Itten with a Scotland-based striker, Florian Kamberi, who is close to joining from Hibernian for €165,000.

Farewell to Morelos?

The arrival of two strikers could be a sign that Alfredo Morelos is on his way out of Ibrox.

The Colombian marksman has been in talks with Lille and has agreed personal terms.

However, the French club are also talking to Gent forward Jonathan David so it’s unclear who their Victor Osimhen replacement will be.
