Opinion: Glasgow Rangers should take a chance on 26-year-old defender

Glasgow Rangers would be wise to find additional cover for Croatian star Borna Barisic, in case they receive an offer they can’t refuse this summer. 

The Gers are believed to be showing an interest in Welsh international left-back Morgan Fox, as per TeamTalk, who will be leaving Sheffield Wednesday in June.

That’s when his contract with the Owls expires, and if Steven Gerrard is looking for an experienced left-sided defender, no transfer fee is involved.

It makes sense for Rangers to bring in a left-back, with Andy Halliday and Jon Flanagan recently released by the Ibrox club.

Reported Rangers target Fox featured in 109 matches for Charlton, in the extremely competitive English Championship.

In January 2017, Fox moved from Charlton to the Hillsborough club for £700,00 and has played 102 games for Sheffield Wednesday.

Still only 26, he’s racked up a very impressive 211 ties in the last six seasons with two high-standard football clubs.

Fox played seven times for Wales U21’s and two UEFA Euro 2016 qualifying matches against Cyprus and Israel in September 2015. 

Signing for Rangers could lead to Fox winning his place in the Wales side again, if he can make a success of himself at Ibrox in front of a packed crowd.

His highly regarded manager Garry Monk wants Fox to stay with the Owls, but he knows his defender is looking forward to a new challenge.

With Rangers short of disposal income, as most clubs, signing the 26-year-old defender on a free transfer could well be shrewd business by the Glasgow giants.
