As we go into the summer transfer window Rangers need defensive reinforcements, and in Gary Cahill, the club would have a reliable, experienced, Premier League centre half.

What’s more, the former Bolton man and Chelsea captain is available on a free. His contract will expire in the summer and Cahill has played his last game for London the club.

Now 33-years-old, there’s still plenty of gas in Cahill’s tank. Being a former England teammate of Steven Gerrard’s too, might the Rangers manager be able to get the defender to consider Ibrox?

It might sound outlandish at first but going into this window we should expect the unexpected. We’ve already been talking about the likes of Danny Welbeck and James Milner.

It appears anyone with a pre-contract and a history with Stevie G is worth considering. Just ask Jermain Defoe.

 

Cahill was a top-class defender in his day and there’s no doubt will still herald some of those attributes, even if he has found his chances at Chelsea limited recently.

A commander and leader, he would be the perfect experienced head at the back. It’ll also soften the blow of missing out on Rennes centre-half Mexer.

With Joe Worrall and Gareth McAuley set to leave the club, Rangers need defensive reinforcements. Rangers might not be able to compete with Premier League wages, but the club offers something completely different.

Whilst there’s no suggestion Rangers are interested, should we move for Gary Cahill if he becomes available to us?
