Raphael Borges Rodrigues Rangers transfer given thumbs up as winger insight provided by insider

Craig Moore has provided an insider's insight into Rangers target Raphael Borges Rodrigues.

The Macarthur winger, 20, has found his name brought up in Ibrox recruitment circles as Football Scotland told you earlier this week. The Dutch-Australian has made 32 appearances in all competitions in the A League and AFC Cup and scored six goals with two assists to his name in that time.

That has triggered interest from the EFL Championship and in Glasgow and Moore feels the player is ready to make the step up from Down Under and can cut it in a Premiership first-team.

Speaking on GO Radio, Moore said: "He is a very interesting player. He was a part of the senior group at Melbourne City but wasn't getting enough minutes. As a young player he wanted to play and has had a very good season at MacArthur. This is a player who has been flagged up on a lot of clubs data, including some in the UK.

"He is a player who I certainly think can play first team football in Scotland and you have also got Championship clubs in England who are sniffing around for this player, such is the talent that he is showing. He is a left winger, a good size and is very direct.

"He has an Australian, Brazilian and Dutch background so it's all mixed in there. The boy is a decent talent and he'll be moving from MacArthur Bulls in the summer, there is no doubt about that. Where? time will tell."
