Rangers are in the hunt to sign Martin Skrtel this summer, according to The Daily Record.
The paper say that Steven Gerrard has held promising discussions with the player about making the switch to Ibrox, with his contract expiring at Turkish giants Fenerbahce.
Be sure to check out the incredible story of the man who rose from a Tanzanian refugee camp to become one of Australia’s biggest football stars in the video below…
The report states that the Gers tried to sign the Slovakian international during last summer’s transfer window and in January, but that there now could finally be a willingness on the defender’s part to move to Glasgow.
A former teammate of Gerrard at Liverpool, Skrtel is now 34-years-old, so there’ll certainly be a few eyebrows raised if he does join the Rangers squad.
However, he has plenty of experience at the top level and would strengthen a position that currently has a 21-year-old and a 22-year-old competing for places.
Some fans are certainly interested in seeing a deal go ahead, taking to Twitter over the last 24 hours to share their thoughts…
Martin Skrtel could be an excellent signing. He's 34, a warrior, won't shirk a single challenge & would relish the physicality of the SPL. Could also be a great help to younger defenders like Katic & Edmundson. If Steven Gerrard thinks he's good enough, then so do I. ?⚪️?

We don’t know…Katic is a work in progress , he’s young as is Edmondson. Skrtel and Goldson would be pretty formidable and, at the end of the day, we want to win the league with whoever is playing best

If it’s Skrtel and he deserves the shirt then I’m cool with that, let’s get the best 11 on the park possible.

That would be 4 good centre backs. I’d be happy with skrtel
