An update has emerged on Cardiff City central defender Ciaron Brown, regarding Rangers’ interest in his services.
According to GiveMeSport, Rangers are showing an interest in signing Cardiff City centre-back Ciaron Brown on a pre-contract deal in January.
The report claims that the defender is out of contract at the end of the season and could agree term with the Gers in January ahead of joining on a free next summer.
Rangers must ensure that they can convince Brown to reject the chance to sign a new contract with Cardiff. The centre-back could be a solid addition to Steven Gerrard’s squad and they must sanction a swoop for him in January.
Gerrard would love to have Brown at Ibrox as he is a young player with potential, one who has already shown that he can compete in the Scottish Premiership. Brown spent the first-half of the 2020/21 campaign on loan at Livingston in Scotland, averaging an impressive SofaScore rating of 6.95 in 16 appearances.
Speaking to The Daily Record, his one-time Livingston manager David Martindale once said that he has a footballing brain: “He is a massive player for us and he is a great lad around the place.
“Ciaron has got a very good football brain. When I ask him to do a job, he knows what to do and nine times out of ten he will make the right decision.”
These quotes, along with his performances for Livingston and Cardiff, suggest that he has the quality required to play for Rangers. Martindale has outlined that Brown has the footballing intelligence to perform well at the top level, whilst the general level of his performances for his Scottish Premiership side provide evidence to support his claim.
At the age of 23, he also has the potential to improve further and grow as a player. This is why Gerrard would love him at Rangers as he would have a capable footballer who he could also work with on the training pitch to help him fulfill his potential.
