As reported by The Daily Record, Rangers are interested in signing Hibernian midfielder John McGinn during this summer’s transfer.
The paper say that incoming manager Steven Gerrard sent a scout to watch the player in action during the recent Edinburgh derby and is weighing up making a move for him.
The report states that Hibs manager Neil Lennon is hoping to receive as much as £5m for his signature.
Would he be a good signing for Rangers? Perhaps. He has been one of Hibs’ better players this season and has produced excellent performances against the likes of Celtic and the Light Blues themselves.
A Scotland international, he also has long-term potential at the age of 24.
Rangers fans though are not convinced, either with his ability or with how true this transfer report is.
Many believe there is no chance he will be making the move to the blue half of Glasgow and took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
McGeouch is better than McGinn 🤷♂️.. ever since Dylan has been out of the side that’s when Hibs drop points!

John McGinn is that player on Football Manager who is never interested in signing for you.
Stranger things have happened but can't see him signing for Rangers.

John McGinn to Rangers seems like the most unrealistic transfer of the summer by quite a distance.

I see the newspapers are still just throwing names out on a daily basis. John McGinn won't be a Rangers player & would go as far as to say he would never play for us.

The chances of John McGinn coming to us is roughly around 0%
Just seeds planted by the media so that when McGinn goes elsewhere this summer it will be “Gerrard fails to land Rangers target” or “Rangers lose out on top target”

Going to go on out on a limb here and say John McGinn won’t be a Rangers player.

Claims of Rangers targeting John McGinn just for him to come out and say I would never sign for Rangers.
Another desperate attempt of a damaging story.
File alongside Steve Clark snubs Rangers job.

John McGinn would be a great signing for Rangers. I highly doubt Hibs would sell him to us though, or would he even want the move?

I cannot see John McGinn signing for @RangersFC.
