Sam Lammers Rangers transfer decision made as interest extends beyond Utrecht

Rangers will look to sell Sam Lammers this summer despite his stunning form while on loan at Utrecht, according to a report.

The Dutch forward has been able to find the form that eluded him at Ibrox since being sent back to his homeland in January, finding the net 10 times including a run of nine in 10 games. The Eredivisie side have expressed a desire to keep him for longer but he is contracted in Glasgow until 2027.

Former Gers defender Craig Moore recently suggested it might be an idea to bring the player back for pre-season training and offer him the chance to stake a claim again. But Rangers Review are now reporting that won't be the case and the 27-year-old will be offloaded.

The report states the Light Blues are confident of recouping the £3.5million they paid Atalanta for Lammers' services last summer. However, they feel there is a chance of making a profit thanks to his form since making the loan move.

As well as Utrecht, there is also now significant interest from the same division as well as two other clubs outside the Netherlands. Lammers recently said he planned to speak to people at Rangers after radio silence while he has been away.

He said: "I still have to contact the people at Rangers. That will happen as soon as the season is over. If I had spent the last few months focusing on where I will be playing next season, I really wouldn't have scored goals so easily.

"I have had a lot of questions about my future in recent weeks. To be honest, I am not concerned with that at all right now and I want to enjoy this moment.

"I just want to achieve European football for the club. When I came to Utrecht we also said that the goal was to achieve European football, which is now very close."
