Rangers join race to sign U21 defender


According to the Sunday Express, Rangers have joined Celtic in the race for Dundee Utd’s promising young U21 defender John Souttar.

As covered on Ibroxnoise.co.uk, Rangers are most definitely in January’s transfer market for a defender, such is the lack of cover in that position, with only Tottenham Hotspur’s on loan stopper Dominic Ball available for depth in the central berth at the back.

Souttar, 19, is a product of Brechin’s youth academy and is an established youth international, with almost 20 caps at the various age ranks for the national team, and having made almost 50 appearances for the Arabs since his switch to Tannadice two years ago certainly does not find himself out of his depth at SPL level.

Utd have famously struggled this season, however, making a move out a slightly more tempting prospect for a starlet such as Souttar, but Rangers lost out last time they went head to head with Celtic for a player and Warburton would find the going tough to persuade Souttar to join Rangers in the Championship.

But as the Magic Hat has said, he only wants players who want to play at Ibrox.

  1. What player is the writer talking about that we lost out the head to head against the smelly ones? Does he mean judas allan? We never got to speak to Allan so it was hardly a head to head. We have 2 things now going in our favour here. Firstly Premiership football is more or less a given and second the player must be looking at Rangers knowing we give youth a chance and Celtic……. well just ask Judas.

  2. If I was a young player comfortable on the ball and wanted to be part of a team playing out from the back with exciting attack minded free flowing football i would be camped outside ibrox desperate to play for warbs n weir n Rangers.

  3. Should have had him 2 years ago along with Blair Spittal and Andy Robertson.But McCoist couldn't see what the rest of Scottish football could.TFF the Hat I'll tell you!

  4. Allan still not had a game yet any way he is better suited at the piggery ,never a Ranger supporter WATP LOL.

  5. I'm sure Herr Liewell will have a word into his Bheast Bitch Speccy's ear to persuade Souttar to join the filth. And if he would rather go to them, then I don't want him anyways.

  6. Celtic never really wanted that Judas fuck Allan anyway it was just a cheap shot at us because they know we are up next year and that fucking idiot Allan bought it he was a pawn in a game he won't even get a chance at ceptic the hat would have made him a good player but he can bench sit now probably suit the wee money grabbing liar WATP

  7. Go to the east end and sit on the bench (if lucky) in a half empty stadium or come to Ibrox and play in front of a full house every other week.
    A no-brainer surely which makes me thinks Judas Allan has no brain.
