New defender and interest in 28-year old England striker? Rumour roundup

Another day at Ibrox/Malaga, another chunk of rumours, stories, transfers and suchlike. Ibrox Noise takes you through today’s highlights and other bits and bobs.

Ovie Ejaria is yet to join his new mates in Spain. The new loan signing has not yet hooked up with the lads at the time of writing, the winger being a Rangers man till the end of the season, but to the best of our information he has not joined the camp. Hopefully today?

Liverpool’s Jon Flanagan is reportedly set to imminently hook up at the camp for a medical, the 25 year old defender being a free agent having been released from Anfield. The near-6ft full back is a former team mate of Gerrard, and his signing should entirely sort out the vacancy for a new FB to compliment Tav and John. Flanagan will be Rangers’ seventh signing of the summer window.

Some outlets are being mischievous over the Kenny Miller to St Mirren story. Miller is set to join Alan Stubbs at St Mirren Park but a few media sources are presenting the story as a ‘Rangers player exit’ when, of course, the striker became a free agent some time ago. We wish him the best of luck, except against us of course, and even Steven Gerrard has endorsed the player and wishes he could have kept him.

Sources claim former Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge is keen on a switch to Rangers, with the 28-year old forward having spent last season at West Brom. The injury-plagued hitman is one of the most talented forwards to have come out of England in years, but could never sustain fitness for long enough to have serious impact.

He is reportedly keen to join the ex-Liverpool boys in Govan – but financially it is very difficult at best. If he was to take a pay cut and fit in with Rangers’ pay structure, why not! We don’t expect much of this one though.

And as a little laugh, former Rangers winger Michael O’Halloran was presented by his new club Melbourne as Scott. Good to know they know who the heck they’re signing eh!
