They claim that Steven Gerrard is keen to pursue the 23-year-old. He started the season well with a goal against Connah’s Quay Nomads, but hasn’t netted since.
This move doesn’t make any sense whatsoever.
Brophy to Rangers won’t happen
This is very unlikely at this stage. Why would Kilmarnock sell their only senior striker to a rival club?
Angelo Alessio only has Liverpool loanee Liam Millar and youngster Innes Cameron to turn to outside of Brophy. Unless a suitable replacement is brought in beforehand or big money lands at their door, he’s going nowhere.
Plus, Steven Gerrard doesn’t need him. They have Jermain Defoe, Alfredo Morelos and Greg Stewart to call upon through the middle. Gerrard also recently told the Evening Express that he wanted to add one more player this summer. They’ve just signed Andy King, which would suggest their business is done.
The way Rangers play right now also doesn’t suit Brophy. Gerrard is playing with one up top, and as was most evident during his Scotland debut, Brophy can’t play up top himself.
Plus, why would the Killie frontman want this move? He wouldn’t get near the senior side right now with the form Defoe and Morelos are in, with the pair already scoring six and nine goals respectively this term.
There are so many factors that make this deal unrealistic. Killie fans shouldn’t worry about Brophy leaving just yet.
