UHLSPORT-Rangers are ready to sign two quality European strikers as they stage an all-out assault for honours to make up for a disappointing first half to the season. Chastened by their fourth-place finish behind South China in the first phase of the league and their flop in the Senior Challenge Shield quarter-finals where they were defending champions, Rangers are seriously considering signing two of three players being offered to them on loan. Skarca Tomislav, formerly of Yugoslavia's famed Hajduk Split, 31, fellow Croat Dubravko Hrkavac, 27, of Croatian First Division team Radink and Germany's Lakonski Enrico, 24, formerly of Bundesliga club Hansa Rostock and now with German Second Division side FC Monthey, have all been offered to the Hong Kong club. Rangers are content with their back four and their midfield but have reservations on the strength of their forward line which has been weakened by the departure of Australian Alistair Edwards. Edwards has returned to Perth after just three months following his move from English First Division side Millwall because his family was unable to settle down in the territory. 'We'll make a decision whether we will sign two of these three players in the next 48 hours and if we do sign them, they will be arriving here no later than January 1,' Rangers team manager Tony Siew said yesterday. 'Rangers will try their best in the second half of the season. We are now trying to rebuild our team. 'We are analysing what went wrong in the first stage, but we promise fans we will deliver in the second half of the season. 'All three players offered to us will be on a loan basis. We might have to pay a small fee to the Croatian Football Association especially since the peace treaty has been signed and they are trying to get themselves together for next year's European Championship.' Rangers' main object is to win one of the major trophies while providing more opposition to arch-rivals South China and feel that the new European players could be the answer to the club's problems. 'We have had no luck with English players and we have enough midfield players at the moment. What we really need are good strikers,' Siew said. Of the three, German Enrico looks to have the most impressive background having played for FC Rostock, a former East German club, recently. Hrkavac also has impressive credentials having played six games for the Yugoslavian junior team and 15 games with the Croatian youth team.
