Previously quoted £7 million, Kevin McDonald could finally be a cheap option for Rangers

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has reportedly been keen on bringing the 30-year-old to Ibrox.

Earlier this month, Rangers were being linked with a move for Fulham midfielder Kevin McDonald. Football.London reported that the Ibrox side had started initial talks with the Cottagers over bringing the Scottish midfield maestro to Ibrox.

It is, of course, not the first time Rangers have been linked with the player. Even before Steven Gerrard took over at Ibrox he was apparently on the radar. A year ago to the day, as reported by The Scotsman, Rangers were linked with a £1.5 million move for the player.

That was a huge reduction on a previous asking price Rangers had received for the player. In 2016, Mark Warburton wanted him at Ibrox. However, as reported by My London, he would have cost a massive £7 million back then.

So how much would he be worth now?

McDonald has struggled for football at Fulham since promotion to the Premier League. An ankle injury proved a major setback and he has not started a league game for the Cottagers since October.

 

With his contract expiring in 2020, it is perhaps likely he would cost a fee similar to the previous £1.5 million quote.

Rangers have since signed Steven Davis, so any more midfield recruitment would obviously need to see some outgoings at Ibrox.

But, compared to the £7 million it would have cost a little over two years ago, Rangers could be on to a winner.
