KYLE LAFFERTY and Graham Dorrans could have played their last games for Rangers after being left out of Steven Gerrard’s squad for the pre-season trip to Portugal.

But Charlton midfielder Joe Aribo will join up with the Light Blues as he gets set to put pen-to-paper on a four-year deal at Ibrox.

Aribo informed Addicks boss Lee Bowyer on Friday that he would be leaving Valley Parade at the end of his contract and moving to Glasgow.

Rangers have seen off competition from a host of clubs in England and abroad to secure the services of the 21-year-old and will pay compensation of around £300,000.

Aribo will have a medical down south on Monday before jetting out to the Algarve to join up with Rangers as Gerrard puts his players through their paces this summer.

The playmaker will become the seventh signing of the window for Gerrard as the 39-year-old puts his plans in place for the new campaign.

That blueprint does not include Lafferty or Dorrans, however, and both face bleak futures at Ibrox after being left behind when the squad flew out from Glasgow on Saturday.

Lafferty returned to Ibrox from Hearts last summer but struggled to make an impression as he scored just six times for the Light Blues and failed to dislodge Alfredo Morelos and then Jermain Defoe from Gerrard’s starting line-up.

The Northern Irishman still has 12 months to run on his Gers deal but an early exit now seems on the cards for Lafferty and midfielder Dorrans.

The 32-year-old has seen his Rangers career ruined by injuries since moving from Norwich and he made just three appearances last term.

There is also no place for Eros Grezda as he heads for the exit door just a year after signing from Osijek.
