Rangers fans here in the Tavern won’t be too pleased that their side failed to secure second position, but with Steven Gerrard at the helm, things are beginning to look up for the Bluenoses.
Steven Gerrard will be looking to make an immediate impact at Ibrox after taking over from Graeme Murty, with many of our local residents expecting nothing less than success. Although, it looks as if he’s experiencing some difficulties on the transfer front, as according to the Scottish Sun, Newcastle are poised to hijack Rangers’ bid to sign Martin Skrtel.
Steven Gerrard spent eight years alongside Martin Skrtel at Anfield and was keen to be reunited with the central defender this summer.
Rangers remain in the running for the Slovakian, but they cannot come close to matching the wages on offer at Newcastle.
And, it’s believed that Newcastle representatives have jetted out to Turkey in the hope of thrashing out a deal with the Istanbul outfit.
So, it appears as if Rangers have lost vital ground in their pursuit of Martin Skrtel, as Newcastle representatives have reportedly already jetted out to Turkey to thrash out a deal. The central defender has established himself as an international star over the years, as Slovakia’s standout performer and captain.
