Rangers have once again been linked with long-term transfer target Jack Tucker after his manager admitted he could ply his trade for either Old Firm side.

Naturally, yes, again, a Rangers target gets the ‘Celtic’ word added in the headline, which we’re used to, but Tucker’s name surfacing again is an interesting one.

The 20-year old Gillingham defender has been reported on Ibrox Noise before, for some key standout displays in recent times, but he’s contracted till a reported 2022 so the Gillingham graduate, who has been with the Gills his whole career, would cost an English rival a potential fortune.

To Rangers, however, just £250,000 as per the usual U23 cross-border rules.

In terms of the kind of defender he is, he’s said to be a composed and comfortable stopper who is also very useful at RB.

Celtic are reported to have been scouting him for some time, so they’re likely to be a rival, as usual, but Rangers would certainly be a better opportunity for minutes for the youngster.

Question is, do Rangers need more experienced defensive than he?
