The Daily Record has suggested that Glasgow Rangers should make a move for out of contract right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner.
The 36-year-old spent the past term at Augsburg in the Bundesliga, appearing in 20 matches for the south German outfit in the top tier. However, his deal at the club lasted just one season and, should Steven Gerrard and co at Ibrox want to, they could sign him on a free transfer.
At his age, Lichtsteiner may not be the player he was once was, but there is no doubt that he could be a valuable addition to the Ibrox outfit. There are few players who possess the experience of the former Juventus man – he has over 700 appearances in all matches in his career, including 108 caps for Switzerland, and knows all about winning at the highest level, with eight titles to his name across Italy and his homeland.
Would you like to sign Stephan Lichtsteiner?
To be able to spend seven years at a club like Juventus, you must have something special. Whilst Lichtsteiner may not be the most extravagant and eye-catching of players, there is something just as impressive about regularity and reliability. James Tavernier would likely continue to be the number one choice on the right side of the back four, but the Swiss’ experience could be hugely important as the Gers look for a first major trophy since 2011.
