Rangers boss Steven Gerrard is set to table a bid for Birmingham City star Greg Stewart, according to Football Insider.

The Gers are free to negotiate with the 29-year-old playmaker as his current contract expires at the end of the season.

Gerrard will be looking to land Stewart on a pre-contract and strengthen his Rangers squad ahead of next year.

The Birmingham midfielder is currently on loan at Aberdeen, and his performances in the Scottish Premiership have impressed the Gers boss.

Stewart has scored nine times so far this season and has also come up with 10 assists, making him a valuable asset if Rangers were to land their man.

One of those goals came against Gerrard’s side back in October, as his 15th minute effort held Gers to a 1-1 draw.

Stewart has an abundance of experience in the Scottish football, as he also spent last season on loan with Kilmarnock and the previous campaign with Aberdeen.

The midfielder started his career at Cowdenbeath, earning a move to Dundee before Birmingham City secured his signature.

In England, Stewart has failed to make an impression and after spending the last three seasons on loan his parent club should be open to negotiations with Rangers.

Since 2016, the 29-year-old has made just six starts for Birmingham, with a further 16 appearances coming from the bench.

While the Championship strugglers will see little value in Stewart, Rangers will see a potential move to Ibrox as a coup for the club given his performances in Scotland.
