Steven Gerrard's Rangers linked with £7M ex-team mate



Following Steven Gerrard’s appointment as Rangers on a four-year deal, Rangers have been heavily linked with a move for his ex-team mate Martin Skrtel.

The 33-year old Slovakia captain was a rock behind Gerrard during their time at Anfield, and the circa 100 cap currently plies his trade in Turkey with Fenerbahce, with around 20 appearances this season for the Turks, albeit a season slightly marred with injury.

The former Zenit stopper has experience of the highest levels, with Liverpool, Russia, Turkey and of course the world cup and European championships to his name, and with Rangers desperately needing armaments at the back, a leader such as he would be welcome.

The Slovak cost Liverpool around £7M all those years ago and Fenerbahce paid roughly the same for his services, and Gerrard would probably see such a player as a vital component of his rebuilt side.

Early days of course folks but viva la revolution!

  1. My only concern is age. Davie Weir was an exception. Bruno Alves was a good player but very expensive for us given how injury prone he has been. Sir Alex Ferguson Only gave one year contracts to over 30s. Sadly many pros look for 4 year contracts when they get older as pension. And then don’t put in effort or are injured.

    No 4 yr contract, he can have 2 w an option. Days of being suckered have to end.
    3 CBs and a CDM(McCrorie?) to cover Jack and Rossiter would make a massive difference, a great start

  7. Hope we sign him!
    He is a Monster at the Back!
    Dembele/McGregor etc will be shit scared of going near him! 👊😂⚽

    Throw him a 2yr Deal 👍

    Cant see us signing Terry or Torres as Terry has said he wants another year at Villa and Torres will probably go to USA/China
