Rangers and new manager Steven Gerrard are continuing to drive on with their summer transfer business, and fans in the Transfer Tavern will be delighted with the news being received at Ibrox.
The Liverpool legend has already been busy with his recruitment since taking over, having added Allan McGregor, Jamie Murphy and Scott Arfield to his ranks, and has not shown any desire to slow down the process of rebuilding the club after finishing third behind Aberdeen in the Scottish Premiership this term.
And that rebuild looks set to pick up pace, as he could be about to add a rather experienced body that he knows well from his playing days at Anfield if reports are to be believed.
And given how influential the Slovakian ace was during his spell at Anfield, this deal, should it be completed in the near future, could turn out to be a very good one indeed for Gerrard’s Gers heading into the 2018/19 season.
Landlord’s Verdict: The arrival of the 33-year-old would be a solid piece of business by the Glasgow outfit, with a need at centre-back looking to be filled adequately.
The Slovakia international has played at the top level of the game for over a decade, and would help to add the experience required at the back.
Skrtel is expected to pen a three-year deal to reunite with Gerrard, and a number of locals in the Tavern will feel that they have secured a bargain deal in terms of what he can offer the side.
Rangers fans… what do you make of the news? Let us know!
