Steven Gerrard’s Glasgow Rangers have joined Neil Lennon’s Celtic in the race for Grady Diangana, currently on loan at West Bromwich Albion from West Ham United, according to The Herald.

Celtic have made ‘initial enquiries’ about the availability of the winger, while their bitter Old Firm rivals Rangers have also made contact with the representatives of the 22-year-old, according to the report.

The report has added that the Gers wanted to sign the Englishman last summer and were close to securing his services from Premier League outfit West Ham.

West Brom, who are aiming for automatic promotion from the Championship to the Premier League at the end of the season, want to keep hold of the youngster, who himself is open to moving to Glasgow this summer, according to the report.

Stats

According to WhoScored, Diangana has made 21 starts and seven substitute appearances in the Championship for West Brom so far this season, scoring seven goals and providing five assists in the process.

Uncertain future

One suspects that the future of the youngster will depend on how West Ham and West Brom fare in the coming weeks.

If the Baggies clinch promotion and are willing to buy Diangana outright, then West Ham may be willing to cash in on him.

However, if the Hammers get relegated from the Premier League, then they will probably want to make use of a player who has been so successful in the Championship in their promotion bid.
