Rangers striker Sam Lammers should join FC Twente, AZ Alkmaar or FC Utrecht this summer if he leaves Ibrox as expected.

That’s according to journalist Leon ten Voorde, who has criticised the striker and suggested he has previously chosen money over clubs who were better for his career.

Lammers joined Rangers in a €4.1m deal in July last year but found himself out of the picture once Philippe Clement arrived as manager midway through the season.

He joined Utrecht on loan in the January transfer window and enjoyed his time back in the Netherlands, with 11 goals and three assists in 20 games for the club between January and the end of the season.

Lammers is expected to leave Rangers on a permanent basis this summer, with Clement seemingly having different plans as he reshapes the squad at Ibrox to better suit his needs and compete with Celtic for the title.

A return to the Netherlands looks most likely for Lammers and several clubs are believed to be keen on him, including Utrecht after his loan spell last season.

Recent reports claimed they had pulled out of the negotiations and turned their attention elsewhere, though, as Rangers demands were proving to be too high.

Lammers’ own wishes will play a part if he is to leave at any point and Ten Voorde has urged the Rangers man to choose wisely, after perhaps being unwise earlier in his career.

“Sam Lammers has not let football come first throughout his career,” he said.

“He always chose clubs where you think: you won’t get around to playing there. You have the feeling that he chooses the money. Now go play football. He is priceless in terms of salary.

“FC Twente, AZ or FC Utrecht would be good clubs for him. Then he will have a very nice life after the age of 35.

“But up to the age of 35 it is wonderful if you can do fun things. He is now in the prime of his life, so you want to play football, right? You can choose between €1.5m and €500,000. But with €500,000 you can also go to the Appie (Dutch supermarket chain) very well.”
