We’ve avoided the Cédric Kipré story in recent times, but it’s started to grow some legs so we thought we’d have a look at the Ivory Coast-born defender and examine if he’s good enough for Rangers.

The short answer is yes. And no.

Obviously the first thing we look at is the fact he’s ex-Motherwell, and that can’t be good enough, right?

But he was just 20 back in those days and still a developing player – these days he’s an experienced Championship stopper with experience in the Jupiler Pro in Belgium too.

He’s not quite a marquee defender, we admit that, but in the case of needing good bodies to add to the roster who can step up and do a job when needed, there are worse out there than the West Brom man.

He’s only worth about £1M so the fee to prise him from his 2 year left deal wouldn’t be mammoth.

But there’s no question his isn’t the ambitious kind of name fans will want to hear.

Currently our incoming roster is John Souttar – while questions legitimately remain over his fitness capabilities, he is certainly a fine addition on paper.

Sadly, that’s it. There’s no one else at present, albeit we do hope to hear some good news this week.

But Kipre? Wouldn’t be a bad addition even if he wouldn’t set fans’ pulses racing.
