Glasgow Rangers are interested in signing Hearts star John Souttar, according to a report published by The Daily Record. 

The Gers have certainly improved considerably under the guidance of Steven Gerrard this season. However, they are set to have yet another campaign without a piece of silverware and end the league well below Celtic.

Rangers boss Gerrard will have to make some wise additions this summer if he wants to challenge the Hoops for the League next season.

The 22-year-old Souttar has been a first-team regular for Hearts this season and has so far played in 20 Scottish Premiership games, recording one assist.

He also scored for his club during the 3-0 victory over Inverness CT on Saturday. The win means that Hearts will be playing in the Scottish Cup final this season which will take place next month.

Souttar would be a good addition to Gerrard’s Rangers side. Joe Worrall is set to leave the club at the end of the season and return to parent club Nottingham Forest so a replacement will need to be found for the 22-year-old.

Someone like Souttar who is proven at Scottish Premiership level could provide strong competition to the likes of Connor Goldson and Nikola Katic.

The three-times capped Scotland international Souttar began his professional career with Dundee United in 2013 and went on to make 63 League appearances for them before moving on to Hearts in 2016. He has so far made 88 League appearances for his current club and scored one goal.

Now is the right time for Souttar to move on to another challenge in order to grow his career ny moving to Rangers.
