Free agent Liam Ridgewell has told TalkSPORT that he is open to a move to Rangers this summer after becoming available for nothing following a release from Championship side Hull City.
The 34-year-old defender is without a club after being released by Hull just six months after joining the club, where he managed only seven appearances under Nigel Adkins.
His short stint at Hull follows five years in the MLS with Portland Timbers, where he won the MLS Cup. The former Birmingham City star is said to be a target for Rangers this summer.
That is according to TalkSPORT host Jim White, who claims sources have informed him that Rangers fancy taking a chance on the veteran defender. White asked Ridgewell about a move to Rangers, and he said he is open to it.
“I’d entertain anything that comes my way,” Ridgewell said. “I’m open to listening to offers and speaking [to clubs], and trying to find out where the club is going and what their ambitions are, and whether they line up with myself.”
TBR’s view – Rangers do not need Ridgewell
There is no doubt that Ridgewell still has a couple of years left in his career to play at a decent level. Two years ago, Ridgewell would have been an excellent signing for the Gers.
Fast forward to 12 months into Steven Gerrard’s stint as manager, and the bar has been raised. The signing of Sweden international Filip Helander has provided the Gers with four excellent centre-backs.
Ridgewell would struggle to get a look in with the club also boasting Nikola Katic, Connor Goldson and George Edmundson.
