RANGERS IN HUNT FOR SUMMER FREEBIE JAMES COLLINSsbobet789 Rangers are eyeing up a move for former West Ham United defender James Collins after he was told he would not be getting a new contract at the London Stadium, according to The Scottish Sun. The report claims that the new Gers manager, Steven Gerrard, has turned his attention to the 6ft 2in (transfermarkt) powerhouse, after missing out on Fenerbahce star Martin Skrtel.
Gerrard is looking to bring in someone with experience and strength – two qualities that the Irons defender has in abundance. The 34-year-old is out of contract at the London Stadium and the Scottish Sun claims he is eager for a move to Ibrox.
Good move for Rangers?
Yes, he fits the bill and is exactly what Gerrard is looking for in terms of experience and strength. The fact that the 34-year-old is out of contract is an added bonus but in truth, Collins is the type of player they would have been targeting even if he was still tied down at the London Stadium. sbobet789
A huge favourite of the Hammers faithful for the 11 years spent at the club, if he can convert his Premier League know-how into the Scottish Premiership, then they have a player on their hands who can steel their backline.
Likely to happen?
Yes, we can see this one happening. Rangers are known to be been fond of a freebie or a loan deal and Collins’ arrival will appeal on that front.
With funds available to spend, the Light Blues do not have the financial constraints upon them as they have done in years gone by, so they will likely be able to match the player’s wage demands. sbobet789
