Rangers are poised to snap up exciting Moroccan Under 20 bad boy striker Tarik Fagrach after he was booted out of Feyenoord for poor behaviour, writes Mark Walker.
The Ibrox side made a move to sign prolific striker Fagrach after he was expelled from the Feyenoord Academy after a bust-up with youth coach Jan Gosgens.
Fagrach, 17, netted an impressive 39 goals in 54 games for the Dutch side’s youth side, including nine already this season, but it wasn’t enough to keep him at the club. He was reportedly kicked out of the Rotterdam outfit because of a ‘lack of training, motivation and a poor attitude,’ according to reports in Holland. Mark Warburton’s side have moved quickly to offer the youngster a three-year deal to join the Championship leaders’ development squad.
Fagrach was poached by Feyenoord in 2013 from city rivals Excelsior and he’s already played for Morocco’s Under 20 team.
But Feyenoord ran out of patience and he seems set to relaunch his career at Murray Park.
