Rangers round-up: Lambropoulos linked, Kent injury blow and Pena up for sale
Vassilis Lambropoulos linked
Rangers’ search for a new centre-back has led them to target Vassilis Lambropoulos.
AEK Athens defender Lambropoulos could be on his way to Scotland, according to Greek media source SDNA.
The 28-year-old, who has two caps for Greece, helped knock Celtic out of the Champions League this season.
Ryan Kent injured
Rangers have suffered a major injury blow ahead of their Europa League decider against Rapid Vienna.
Winger Ryan Kent, on loan from Liverpool, will miss the clash, according to The Daily Record.
Rangers must win to progress to the knockout stages but they will be without the lively 22-year-old, who limped off against Dundee last weekend.
In Kent’s absence, Rangers could turn to youngster Glenn Middleton to play out wide.
Carlos Pena available
Midfielder Carlos Pena has returned to Rangers but is not eligible until January.
And according to The Scottish Sun, Rangers are desperate to flog the 28-year-old.
Pena still has 18 months left of his lucrative £20k-per-week contract and Rangers are ready to get rid.
The controversial Mexican was most recently on loan with Necaxa but Rangers are prepared to let him leave.
