Steven Gerrard has been busy making his Rangers squad better this January as they look to compete with Old Firm rivals Celtic for the Scottish Premiership title.
The Light Blues were dealt a setback in their pursuit of the title on Wednesday evening when they were beaten 2-1 by Kilmarnock at Rugby Park.
Gerrard added the likes of Jermaine Defoe – who scored on his debut – and Steven Davis to his side, whilst he has had a number of players undergo a trial over the winter break.
However, it appears he is about to bring in a player that he knows well in what has been described as a ‘shock’ move.
The goalkeeper is thought to have a medical with the club after a ‘bargain fee’ had been agreed between the two clubs.
Gerrard and Firth have both worked with each other at Liverpool, with the 22-year-old having only joined the National League outfit this summer.
A move for Firth comes as a real surprise, although it could prove to be an inspired acquisition by Gerrard and Rangers.
The duo know each other from their time together at Liverpool and the manager must have high thoughts about the 22-year-old to bring him to Ibrox.
Firth is unlikely to challenge for a first-team spot straight away, with the likes of Allan McGregor and Wes Foderingham available, however, he could make a push for a place in the starting XI if he does enough in training sessions.
