Glasgow Rangers are plotting a move to re-sign veteran defender Alan Hutton, according to a report published by Football Insider. 

The 34-year-old is currently a free-agent after he was recently released by Aston Villa this summer.

The report added that the likes of Nottingham Forest, Wigan Athletic and Hull City have all shown an interest in signing the former Rangers player.

The Scotland international will not be short of offers and will hence be in no rush to make a decision about his future.

Hutton could be a good addition to the Rangers side, who will be aiming to usurp Celtic as the kings of Scottish football next season.

Even though he is now nearing the end of his career, his vast experience in England could mean that he will still be able to compete in the Scottish Premiership in a similar way to fellow veteran Jermain Defoe, who is on the books of the Gers.

Hutton may also be tempted to re-join the Ibrox club, where he started his professional career.

It would be a fitting end to his playing days if he could help his boyhood club Rangers finally land a piece of major silverware following nearly a decade of underachievement.

After starting his career with the Gers, Hutton moved on to Tottenham in 2008 for a fee of around £9 million.

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard is on the lookout to reinforce his side this summer and Hutton would be a good addition as he is capable of playing as a right-back as well as a left-back.
