Should Glasgow Rangers manager Steven Gerrard attempt to bring his ex-England team-mate Gary Cahill to Ibrox on a pre-contract deal?

The Gers will look to bolster their playing squad this summer in a bid to win silverware next season, especially as rivals Celtic have dominated the domestic game again this term.

Rangers boss Gerrard has admitted that he wants experience in his dressing room and that when looking at potential signings, he wants players that are ready to slot into the starting XI.

As such, Cahill could possibly fit the the bill for the Light Blues.

He started his senior career at Aston Villa, before moving on loan to Burnley and then Sheffield United to gain more first-team experience.

Cahill spent four years with Bolton Wanderers from 2008 – 2012, before moving to Chelsea, where he has played in 289 games so far.

Cahill amassed 61 caps for England starting in 2010 when he earned his first start in the famous white shirt and kept it for almost 10 years.

The defender is known for having excellent technical ability, powerful heading ability and is a no-nonsense, tough tackling centre back – something that Rangers need.

He has a terrific goal-scoring record from set pieces and corners, and his passing is very good. He is also renowned for his ability to read the game particularly well.

Rangers’ first choice pairing at centre-half is currently Connor Goldson and Nikola Katic, but Gerrard needs more options at the back.

With Joe Worrall set to go back to Nottingham Forest after his loan stint at Ibrox and Gareth McCauley not getting any younger, Cahill is the kind of player Rangers should sign to try and win the league.
