Report: Rangers interested in 'very underrated' 30-year-old midfielder

Rangers are interested in Kenny McLean, with the Scottish Express Sport reporting that Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s men could look to agree a pre-contract deal ahead of the midfielder moving to Ibrox in the summer.

The January transfer window is going to be a massive one for van Bronckhorst. The Rangers boss is coming under serious pressure from supporters with the Gers now nine points off the summit in the Scottish Premiership.

They also had an absolutely miserable time in the Champions League group-stages.

According to Scottish Express Sport, Rangers are interested in McLean. The 30-year-old is out of contract with Norwich in the summer.

The Gers could look to sign him in January. But they will also be able to hold talks over a pre-contract deal ahead of the end of the season.

McLean has been a superb servant for the Canaries. He has made 158 appearances for the club in all competitions, with 68 of those games taking place in the Premier League.

The Scottish Express Sport also notes that he is a boyhood Rangers fan. He spent time on the books at Ibrox before leaving in 2008.

Former Norwich boss Daniel Farke suggested he was ‘irreplaceable‘ during his tenure. Meanwhile, Dean Smith claimed that he was ‘very underrated‘.

He may be a good addition given his contract status. The likes of Scott Arfield and Steven Davis proved to be inspired signings after arriving from England. So van Bronckhorst may hope that McLean can have a similar impact.

It is not necessarily the most exciting deal. But it could definitely be a very shrewd piece of business.
