Not all are blessed with millions to spend in the transfer market, neither are Rangers. However, the Light Blues have done some smart transfer business in the winter window and has regained the lost charm to some extent with promises of even more to come from the next season onwards. However, they will be closely monitoring the transfer market and likely to approach for a few names whose deals are running out this summer. They have acquired Ryan Jack on a Bosman deal last summer from league counterparts Aberdeen and must look into similar sort of transfers who will cost nothing but add experience as well as quality in several slots. 

They will try to make the loan moves of Sean Goss, Jamie Walker, Russell Martin and Jason Cummings permanent which indeed will force them to break the bank and leave with almost nothing to spend on other transfer targets. Thus a few deals for the Free Agents might come handy in such a scenario and here’s our shortlist of three such resources who will add value considering their availability on Bosman transfers.

Anthony O’Connor

Age: 25

Position: Defender / Midfielder

Current Club: Aberdeen F.C.

Country: Republic Of Ireland

The former Republic Of Ireland youth international has rejected a contract extension offer and is set to depart for free in summer. Although he is plotting a move back in England, an offer from the Glasgow giants might lure him to secure the move and flourish further under Graeme Murty at Ibrox. O’Connor, predominantly a centre-back, is also capable of playing as a right-back as well as in a defensive midfield role. He should consider a move if Rangers come knocking on the door and must follow the footsteps of Ryan Jack who moved out from the Dons and join the Gers on a similar deal last summer.

Charlie Adam

Age: 32

Position: Midfield

Current Club: Stoke City

Country: Scotland

Charlie Adam has established himself as a Premier League veteran but will run out of contract this season with Stoke City, currently battling out for the survival, are not planning to reward him a new deal. The Dundee-born Scotsman began his senior career at Rangers 15 years back and an emotional homecoming might take place if the Light Blues prefer to bring him back at Ibrox. His combativeness, as well as an experience of the highest order, will strengthen the Gers in midfield and allow them to contest age-old rivals Celtic F.C. in the Premiership title challenge.

George Hirst 

Age: 19

Position: Centre-Forward

Current Club: Sheffield Wednesday

Country: England

The England youth international has been frozen out from the first-team of relegation-threatened Sheffield Wednesday due to long-term contract disputes and the promising starlet is likely to leave for free when his contract expires this summer. Although he is being monitored by several Premier League sides including Everton and Leicester City, the probability of breaking into the senior side is absolutely minimal and a move to Scotland might do him a huge favour with regular first-team football. Rangers are struggling to keep hold of on-demand Alfredo Morelos, whereas they are quite uncertain of making Jason Cummings loan move permanent. Hirst will receive sincere guidance from Graeme Murty, the current Rangers boss, who is known for nurturing young talents with great care. A move to Rangers thus suit both parties and the process of convincing the starlet should start at the earliest.
