Rangers are set to launch a bid to sign Derby County defender Max Lowe from under the nose of rivals Aberdeen, according to a report.
According to the Daily Record, Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has contacted Derby about the left-back as they look at alternatives to Borna Barisic.
The Gers have struggled for a consistent left-back this term with Barisic, Jon Flanagan and Andy Halliday all struggling to make the position their own.
A move to Ibrox for Lowe would also be a temporary switch but would see Gerrard add a defender who has plenty of experience in the Scottish Premiership.
After Derby reached the Playoff final against Aston Villa, there could be an influx of new players at Pride Park should they win promotion.
Lowe has had an impressive season at Pittodrie, making 44 appearances for the Dons and scoring three times.
The Gers have already added Jake Hastie and Jordan Jones to their squad for next season but will need defensive cover with Joe Worrall, Gareth McAuley and Lee Wallace all set to leave this summer and question marks over Barisic’s future.
