Rangers competing with Watford and Middlesbrough for Dan Glazer - report

The Herald and Times reports that Rangers are interested in Maccabi Tel Aviv midfielder Dan Glazer.

The report claims that sources in Israel have indicated several English Championship clubs are also monitoring the 23-year-old, with the Scottish Sun naming them as Watford and Middlesbrough.

Glazer is a product of the Israeli giant’s youth academy and has turned out for the senior side 79 times since making his debut in 2015.

He has also made seven appearances for the Israel national team and is in the squad for his country’s fixture against Scotland at Hampden Park on Friday night.

Glazer is match fit having played two Champions League qualifying fixtures in recent weeks and is only contracted to his current club until the summer of 2021.

Rangers join Watford and Middlesbrough with interest in Maccabi Tel Aviv star – Verdict

It’s no secret that Steven Gerrard is looking to add to his options in midfield after the departures of Greg Docherty, Ross McCrorie, Jason Holt and Jordan Rossiter.

Earlier on Thursday, the club were linked with a move for Slovakia international Patrik Hrosovsky [iSport.cz] and the links to Glazer suggest there are several players on the radar.

He is a more defensive-minded player than Hrosovsky which may come as a disappointment to Gers supporters.

The Israeli has only mustered a solitary goal and five assists in almost eighty appearances for his current club, which doesn’t suggest he’s the dynamic box-to-box player many are crying out for.

He does have experience of winning league medals, though, with Maccabi clinching the Israeli Premier League title in each of the past two seasons.
