Rangers fans are getting excited about the latest transfer news, as reports suggest they have made a bid for Championship defender Jake Cooper.
According to The Daily Record, the Gers have submitted an official bid of around £3m for Millwall’s Cooper, after the young defender made 38 Championship appearances last season.
The 23 year-old could become Steven Gerrard’s tenth summer signing, after young stars Umar Sadiq and Lassana Coulibaly joined on season-long loans on Tuesday.
Cooper, who started his career at Reading and has developed quite the reputation for scoring goals from the back, has two years left on his contract at The Den.

The 6 ft 5 defender scored four times in the Championship last season, and he averaged one goal about every ten league games during his time at Reading.
He is a no nonsense defender that loves getting up and challenging for the ball, and fans will adore his fight and tenaciousness.
There is plenty of excitement on social media about the £3m bid, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…

The lad has had good reports, proven championship player and at the right age for sell on value

He was part of the best defence in the Championship last season? £3mil is cheap for someone that young with that much potential

Please be true. Would love that happen. Huge potential. 6ft 5! Left sided. And British!
