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.
