For the technically gifted 27-year-old attacker, Lammers, the pressure of expectation at Rangers after a £3 million summer transfer, was a familiar scenario.

The circumstances bore similarities to the striker’s disastrous time in Italy with Atalanta, which paid £8 million for Sam Lammers’ services in 2020 following the former PSV star’s meteoric rise to prominence while on loan at Heerenveen.

The Dutchman struggled in Serie A and loan moves to Germany and Italy’s lower levels did not bring success.

After a terrible six months at Rangers, Lammers is back in the warm embrace of his native Holland, and all of a sudden, he feels confident. As well as his shooting boots.

Naturally, attention has been drawn to the striker’s remarkable comeback of 11 Eredivisie goals since January—more goals than he has scored in the prior three and a half years combined.

In a somewhat surprising development, Sam Lammers has now stated that he will discuss his future with Rangers in the summer. Lammers will speak with the Rangers.

Sam Lammers has been discussing his future this week in an interview with De Telegraaf.

It follows Jordy Zuidam, the technical director of Utrecht, revealing that although the Eredivisie team is anxious to keep Lammers on board, any potential agreement could collapse due to salary disputes.

Lammers’ fate was seriously cast into doubt by those remarks, and he has since acknowledged that he would be speaking with Rangers regarding his future at the end of the current campaign.

The forward, who has a contract with the Gers through 2027, has acknowledged that he hasn’t communicated with the Ibrox team since moving to Utrecht six months ago.

“I will be the first to talk to them because I am under contract with them,” Lammers declared. “Over the past six months, I haven’t really had any contact with Rangers.” We are going to talk after this season.

“Right now, I don’t want to worry about it. I can only comment that FC Utrecht has made it clear that it would like to work with me for an extended period of time. “I’m not sure what will happen next.

“I don’t want to do anything that could make me lose focus, so it will all only happen after these matches.

“I hope to score goals in the most crucial games of the season, which are quickly approaching.”

The striker asserts that he hopes to play in Europe with Utrecht, saying, “I’m happy that I could be important to the team.” I’ve had a good six months, but I’m not quite finished.

“We now also wish to play football in Europe. For a few weeks, it has been a little less. We haven’t played as much as we could have in a few of the matchups. “Yet I sense that we’re back in the right energy and flow.”

Although there is no indication that a return to Rangers is imminent, Sam Lammers’s status at Utrecht is undoubtedly a topic of discussion in the Ibrox executive suite.

The Dutch forward was undoubtedly greatly impacted by the fury and rage of the Gers supporters after he was signed by Michael Beale and departed under Philippe Clement.

However, with the Rangers’ budget expected to be fully utilized this summer, the team is faced with a difficult decision about Sam Lammers.

The striker might be moved to help pay for the upcoming reconstruction at Ibrox, but doing so would mean the Gers would miss out on a goal-scoring striker who is close to reaching his prime.

Speaking about the matter this week, former Rangers captain Craig Moore maintains that Lammers merits another chance at Ibrox. Moore said, “Bring him back and take a look at him in pre-season.”

It doesn’t always work out well for the player right away. For Ally McCoist, I don’t think it worked out in the beginning. Super, he was amazing, and everyone adores him.

“Business is business, of course, and the Rangers might be interested in it. He had a fantastic run at Utrecht when his time at Rangers didn’t work out.

However, you can also observe him during the preseason. He didn’t, in my opinion, play the part that was his. rated at Rangers a ten. He has been playing for Utrecht as an all-out striker.
