Scottish Premiership outfit, Rangers, have been quite busy this summer in order to bolster their squad and impose themselves as a serious contender for the Scottish domestic silverwares next season. Their arch rivals, Celtic, seemingly appear to be miles ahead of them and no wonder Pedro Caixinha has already made as many as nine signings to make sure that his employers go toe-to-toe with the Celts.
The Gers have already acquired the services of Bruno Alves, Fabio Cardoso, Ryan Jack, Carlos Pena, Graham Dorrans, Dalcio, Alfredo Morelos, Eduardo Herrera and Daniel Candeias already. However, after their Europa League exit owing to their 2-0 defeat at the hands of Progres Niederkorn (Rangers did register a 1-0 win at the Ibrox Stadium in the first leg), Caixinha is under immense pressure and criticism by the fans and media alike as the loopholes in his side was still evident.
According to the latest reports, the former Al-Gharafa boss is now looking forward to signing former Manchester United midfielder Ryan Tunnicliffe as more additions are vouched for. Tunnicliffe emerged through the youth ranks of the Red Devils but could not cement his place in the senior side. Loan deals to Peterborough United, Barnsley and Ipswich Town followed and eventually, Fulham signed him in the January transfer window of 2014 after he could muster merely 2 appearances for Manchester United.
Despite his move to the Craven Cottage, he failed to erect a fine pedestal for himself at the London based outfit but he did manoeuvre experience under his belt with the Whites as well as with his loan spells with Wigan Athletic twice and a stint with Blackburn Rovers. His contract with Fulham expired this summer as Slavisa Jokanovic was against extending his contract, and thus, Rangers are now in contention to sign him amidst interest from Barnsley as well as Preston North End.
The 24-year-old, at this stage of his career, is looking for a new club to ply his trade and the Light Blues would be a good resort for him. Signing Tunnicliffe might not be a ground shattering one, but considering that he is technically gifted, tackles really well, jots down shrewd passes and has a notable temperament of a calm and composed midfielder, and also that he is free agent now, the signing just might be an astute one with very little element of risk involved in the same. Besides, he has the requisite experience under his belt and will be a decent acquisition for the Glasgow based outfit.
