As per reports, Rangers have not been able to land possibly their most desired target of this summer transfer window, Connor Goldson, which means that the Steven Gerrard led side will have to get a move on or find a replacement for the Brighton and Hove Albion star. The Gers are looking to table another bid for the player but whether the Seagulls will let him leave or not is still to be seen.
Here are 3 replacements we feel they can go for this summer if they fail to land Goldson.
He is a former Swansea City star and was highly popular centre-back in his days at Wales. He has been unable to flourish in Merseyside ever since his move to Everton and has failed to win over admirers at the club. He can now seek a move to Scotland and maybe help the Gers for a season or two.
The player has enough experience of playing in the English league and will definitely shine in Scotland as well. He was an excellent reader of the game at Swansea and is a natural leader. At this age, he can probably guide the young defenders at Rangers and help Gerrard solidify the backline at the Gers.
The defender was a part of the Leicester City championship winning team in the 2015-16 season. Along with Wes Morgan, Huth formed a solid backline at the King Power Stadium. However, he has seen his position taken over by other defenders since and is no longer a first team star at the club.
He has fallen way down the pecking order and might consider a move to another league. He can be a good option for Rangers as he would bring in experience and strength at the back and has the age factor on his side.
He is physically dominant and is a no-nonsense defender. The player is a fighter and does not shy away from a physical battle. Having someone like him at the back will definitely improve the quality of the Rangers backline.
However, Leeds did not offer to extend his deal and he eventually came back to Swansea City this season. However, he has been unable to make the cut at the Welsh club having only made 4 appearances all season. His season has also been hampered by his ligament injury in his knee which saw him ruled out from August to January.
It might do him good to move to a new club and Rangers under the leadership of Gerrard could be the ideal restart he needs to kickstart his career.
