Rangers signing to pave Tau arrival?

SA Players Abroad

Rangers have confirmed the signing of Kemar Roofe as Percy Tau looks set to replace the English forward at Anderlecht.

The Scottish Premier League outfit started their new campaign with a 1-0 win over Aberdeen on Saturday as manager Steven Gerrard hinted at 'one or two' new faces set to arrive in the 'coming days'.

With Bongani Zungu nearing his transfer to the SPL giants from Amiens, Rangers have now confirmed former Leeds United star Roofe as their latest arrival and Tau looks poised to replace him at Vincent Kompany's side.

As the transfer domino effect is set in full swing, the South Africa international looks poised to be unveiled at the 34-time league champions imminently - after being pictured arriving in Brussels on Monday.

Tau enjoyed two separate loan stints in Belgium already from Premier League side Brighton, with his first yielding the Proximus Player of the Year award with Royal Union SG and the second the Jupiler Pro League title with Club Brugge.

However, his former coach at Union, Luka Elsner, believes the move to Anderlecht could see the Bafana Bafana star 'explode' after getting to grips with the rigours of top-flight European football in the 2019/20 campaign.
