Rangers fans aren’t convinced that James Lawrence is a viable transfer option for Steven Gerrard this summer after he was linked with a move to Ibrox.
The Daily Record reported on Sunday that the club were weighing up a £3m move for the Anderlecht centre-back, with the Gers boss said to be a big fan of the player’s talents.

Signing for the Belgian giants last summer, he was part of a rather disastrous season for the club, who are now embarking on a new era under Manchester City legend Vincent Kompany.
A Welsh international, he would likely have enough ability to compete at Scottish Premiership level, but the fee involved and the fact Rangers already have two first-choice defenders in the position has fans questioning whether it’s smart business.
Connor Goldson and Nikola Katic should be considered good enough to start consistently next season and while back-up is needed, supporters seem to think that can be delivered for less money.
These fans have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on it all…
Watched wales against Croatia last week.. he was rotten man.

Lot of Welsh supporters unconvinced by him, and there were reports Anderlecht have been trying to move him on for a while. A £3m fee seems excessive.https://t.co/sYCtQm8B14

£3m for a 26 year old with no pedigree of note, deemed surplus to requirements after half a season at his current club, in a position we have two CBs good enough to start? No thanks. At that money it’d have to be either something special or one for the future. He’d be neither.

3m which could be spent elsewhere not a player I’d like to see at rangers especially at CB

Why we’ve got 2 class centre backs

Rangers are said to be after James Lawrence with a bid of around £3million.
I hope this isn’t true, Katic and Goldson are good enough and should be our first choice centre backs.
