Jim White has revealed that Glasgow Rangers are now working hard ‘behind the scenes’ to bring Tom Lawrence to Ibrox.
The Lowdown: Won the race?
According to The Glasgow Times, Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s team have now ‘won the race’ to sign the Wales international on a free transfer, after he left Derby County on 30 June at the end of his contract.
He would become their second signing of the summer, joining former PAOK striker Antonio Colak as a new face at Ibrox.
The Latest: Working hard
Taking to Twitter on Friday, White has revealed that the Gers are now ‘working hard behind the scenes’ to bring Lawrence to the club, suggesting that a deal could be in place very soon.
The talkSPORT broadcaster tweeted: “Being told @RangersFC working hard behind the scenes to bring @dcfcofficial forward Tom Lawrence to the club.”
The Verdict: Exciting
It is certainly exciting for Rangers fans to see the club bringing in a player of Lawrence’s quality, especially considering that he would not cost a penny in transfer fees.
The winger managed an impressive 11 goals and five assists in 38 games in the Championship last season (Transfermarkt) for a Derby team which was relegated to League One.
Should Rangers sign Lawrence?
Lawrence also captained the Rams in the majority of their matches, demonstrating leadership qualities which would be very useful both on the pitch and in the dressing room for the Teddy Bears as they look to regain the Premiership title back from their bitter rivals Celtic.
