Rangers have been credited with an interest in St Mirren’s Czech high-flying stopper Václav Hladký after the 28-year old claimed he’s been in talks with officials from Govan.
The former Czech youth international has been in imperious form for the basement strugglers this season, and is without any doubt their star asset, and stopped Rangers from scoring any more than Borna Barisic’s world class free kick when Steven Gerrard’s men visited Paisley earlier this season.
That quality of performance has clearly caught Rangers’ manager’s eye and if the 6ft 2 and a half inch goalkeeper’s word is to be believed, talks have begun to try and tempt him to Glasgow.
Rangers would have a lot of competition though, for the number one’s target, like Alfredo Morelos indeed, is the English PL, and he initially seeks a move to the Championship down south in order to get in that shop window.
Of course, a move to Rangers would be an even better shop window theoretically, but significantly he’d have to play, and that’s a huge minus in a move to Ibrox given Allan McGregor’s complete dominance between the sticks.
So even if Steven Gerrard is seriously interested in bringing the colossus to Ibrox, it might not be ideal for the ex Slovan Liberec man given he won’t get the exposure he seeks by sitting on the bench.
Nevertheless, we’ll see how this one unfolds, if it does.
