According to a report by Fotomac, from Turkey, Steven Gerrard is still believed to be keen on reuniting with ex teammate Martin Skrtel, who is currently playing his football with Fenerbahce in Istanbul.
The 33-year-old’s contract is due to expire in the summer and the Ibrox club side will be allowed to speak with the player during January’s transfer window.
A pre-contract offer of a 3-year-free-transfer-deal could be enough to sway Skrtel to play his football in Glasgow for a world record breaking team, and enjoy teaming up with his good friend Gerrard again.
Of course getting a deal done could prove difficult for Rangers, if a lucrative counter approach comes from Fenerbahce, to extend the centre halves current wages to continue with his life in Istanbul.
38-year-old northern Irish Internationalist who made his Ibrox debut for the second half of the ‘magnificent seven’ (see what I did there), goals that Rangers scored during the demolition against the bully boys of Motherwell.
Ex-West Brom captain McAuley only has a one-year-deal with the ‘Teddy Bears’ which finishes in the summer and could possibly make way for the younger Skrtel.
