Andros Townsend has revealed he would be open to a move to Glasgow Rangers should the opportunity arise.
The Lowdown: Townsend is a free agent
29-year-old Townsend is a free agent this summer as he will leave current club Crystal Palace at the end of the month (Transfermarkt).
As such, he could be signed as a free agent – however, the Gers would surely need to convince him to lower his £58,000-a-week wages (salarysport.com).
The Latest: Townsend open to Gers move
Speaking to talkSPORT (via The Daily Record Transfer Blog, 23/05, 13.44), Townsend revealed he would be open to a move to Ibrox. He said when asked whether he would consider Rangers or Celtic:
“I’m open to everything.
“If there’s an option that presents itself and it’s the best one for me and fulfils my needs, I wouldn’t turn it down just because it’s in another country.”
The Verdict: Stellar option
While there have been no reports of interest in the 13-time England international as of yet, Townsend would be a stellar signing for Rangers were they to make a move. During his career, he has made more than 240 appearances in the Premier League, while he has 48 goals and 72 assists to his name.

As Steven Gerrard and co prepare the Gers squad for a potential Champions League run next term, players with the quality of Townsend could be vital to helping the Gers be successful. After these comments, it remains to be seen whether Ross Wilson initiates contact.
