Rangers enter race for Curtis Tilt

Rangers enter race for Curtis Tilt

Rangers have gone one better than last year as they qualified for the next round of the Europa League, despite not putting the best performance together.

The Light Blues were held to a 0-0 draw with FK Shkupi on Tuesday and saw their first leg advantage enough to see them through, although Steven Gerrard was not happy with his side’s efforts in the final third.

However, it appears the new Ibrox chief is still interested in bolstering his defensive lines for the upcoming Scottish Premiership season and according to reports, had one of his targets watched last night.

The Daily Mirror are claiming Rangers watched Curtis Tilt during Blackpool’s friendly with Burnley yesterday and have decided to enter the race for the enforcer.

The Light Blues are thought to have given up on chasing Millwall’s Jake Cooper this summer, after having a number of bids rejected for him and feel they will have a better chance of signing the Tangerines man instead.

The Verdict:

Blackpool defeated Burnley 2-0 in their closed-door friendly and the performance of Tilt would have impressed onlooking eyes.

The defender could prove to be a better option when it comes to value for money, as Gerrard is believed to be keen to add to other areas of the squad as well, whilst he also proved his ability with his performances for the side after having spent much of his career in non-League football.

The League One outfit are thought to want £1million for their defender, which is a snip of the £3m Millwall wanted for Cooper and would prove to be smart business by the Light Blues.
