Have a heart: Signing former England man would give Rangers the best stopper in Scotland

New Rangers boss Steven Gerrard seems to be eager to get some new faces into the squad as he prepares to wrestle the title away from Celtic next season. 

The former Liverpool legend has brought in seven new players into the squad already this summer. One of those new signings was free agent, and former Hull City goalkeeper, Allan McGregor. At 36, the new Rangers man presents an experienced option for Gerrard, however, if the Gers boss really wants to make headway in the league next year, he needs to target Manchester City outcast Joe Hart.

With only a year left on his current deal, the City outcast looks set to end his career in Manchester. The one-time England number one has endured a tough few years recently. With Pep Guardiola’s arrival, Hart was sent to Torino where he had a poor season on loan. Last season Hart was sent on loan again, this time to West Ham, where again he was poor and eventually lost his place to Adrian and also his place in the England team.

Having missed out on Gareth Southgate’s World Cup squad, a move away from City seems inevitable. At 31 and with only a year left on his current contract, Hart needs a fresh challenge and Rangers could be ideal for him.

With City surely keen to pick up a fee and Hart looking to leave permanently, a cut-price deal could be on the cards. Hart is still a good goalkeeper and it seems he just needs to regain confidence in his game away from the pressures of the Premier League.

If he is willing to take a significant pay cut to his salary, Rangers could well have a top-level goalkeeper on their hands.

Would you take Hart Rangers fans?
