Rangers eye swoop for Jake Cooper

Rangers eye swoop for Jake Cooper

Rangers will be desperate to return to winning ways on Sunday in the Scottish Premiership, after losing to Aberdeen in their last outing. 

The Bluenoses remain in the race for the title with Celtic and Kilmarnock, but things need to improve if Steven Gerrard’s side are to achieve any silverware in the current campaign.

Interestingly, it appears as if the Glasgow club are eyeing a potential addition, as according to The Express, Rangers are eyeing a move for Millwall’s Jake Cooper.

Rangers are refusing to give up in their pursuit of Millwall defender Jake Cooper.

Steven Gerrard tried to sign the 23-year old in August and made a series of bids, but nothing came of it.

Chief scout Andy Scoulding travelled to the New Den to watch Cooper net a late equaliser for the Lions against Bolton at the end of last month, and filed a full report.

Gerrard has made it clear he wants Cooper and is prepared to wait. But, if any deal is to be done it is more likely to be in the summer, although Millwall might consider selling in January.

THE VERDICT:

The Englishman is bang in-form at this moment in time, so January would be the ideal time to move for him.

Jake Cooper has established himself as one of the standout performers in the Championship this season, with six assists and one goal to his name from the heart of the defence. It’s very rare that you find a defender that has the ability to provide for his teammates in the final third, as well as doing an incredible job in the defensive third.
