These reports were echoed in Scotland but the Glasgow Times managed to get a hold of a source close to the player who described the reports as a “privilege”.

This Scottish report also suggested there was interest in the player from Holland, Belgium, Germany and Turkey.

The source told the Glasgow Times:

“Rangers is a brand in European football. Everybody knows them, so having interest from Rangers is a big deal for Kristiyan and it is a privilege for him to be among contenders on their wish list.

“It would also be a privilege for him to play under Steven Gerrard and be mentored from a coach who was one of the best midfielders in the last decade.

“As a midfielder, he feels he could gain a lot from him, especially in a tactical sense.

“His mentality is something Rangers fans would love as he is a player who leaves everything out on the park.”

Malinov, 26, is one of a host of midfielders who have been linked to Ibrox this summer as Steven Gerrard looks to add to his squad.
