American utility man Matt Polster has reportedly been offered a contract by Rangers and could prove to be Steven Gerrard’s most important signing.
The American spent time on trial at Ibrox last month after his Chicago Fire contract ended and, according to American Soccer Now, could join the Gers this month.
Despite a long-term knee injury, he has been a stand-out for the MLS side over the last few seasons and would be an important signing for the Light Blues.
Chicago Fire boss Veljko Paunovic viewed Polster as a replacement for Bastian Schweinsteiger before a serious injury disrupted plans.
After missing most of 2018 through injury, Polster has to prove his fitness but can be a success in Scotland.
The Fire are keen to keep their player but a move to Europe – and the chance to link up with Steven Gerrard – could prove to be too much of a draw.
Although a defensively-minded player, Polster regularly chips in with assists and tallied seven in 21 starts in the 2017 season.
Polster won his first cap for the United States in early 2018 against Bosnia.
While he isn’t a big signing that will get fans excited, he’s someone who will perform consistently for Rangers.
Whether in midfield or defence, the American has all the attributes to be a Gers regular for years to come.
