Report: Rangers deny making transfer offer amid Gerrard rebuild

Rangers fans in the Transfer Tavern will be expecting the club to make moves in the summer window as they look to fill in positions that require bodies.

Steven Gerrard will be planning a busy summer of recruitment and has already begun bringing in reinforcements to help improve his Ibrox side, however, he is far from finished and will continue to look for talent to add.

The central areas of defence will cause the Liverpool legend a headache, with the likes of David Bates departing and Bruno Alves not expected to be there following the World Cup, and according to reports, it does not appear a former team-mate will be joining him there either.

The Daily Star are claiming the club have denied making an offer for Fenerbahce’s Martin Skrtel, with the defender being heavily linked with a reunion since Gerrard was confirmed as Ibrox chief.

It had been alleged that the Gers had tabled a £4million bid for the Slovakia international, but those reports now appear to be far from the truth.

Landlord’s Verdict

Rangers will need to look at filling their defensive line with solid players if they are to compete with Old Firm rivals Celtic and Skrtel would definitely be a man to help with their cause.

The 33-year-old would provide an untold amount of experience for the Glaswegian outfit and would be a useful addition to Gerrard at the club as he can play a role of mentoring the younger talent and show them what it takes to become a top professional in the game.

The locals would believe Skrtel would be a solid signing and would immediately help to improve the side, although would be concerned that if things did not work out, they could be stuck with him as not many other sides would want to take the risk on him.
