A report coming out of Poland has contradicted claims in Scotland surrounding Rangers interest in Bosnian goalkeeper Vladan Kovacevic.
Reports emerged during the week claiming the Gers are reportedly tailing the 24-year-old goalkeeper as uncertainty surrounds the future of veteran stopper Allan McGregor.
With the likes of Inter Milan also linked in the past, there are good sounds surrounding the Rakow keeper who was also named the Polish Estraklasa’s goalie of the year, keeping 16 clean sheets across the Polish top tier and the Europa Conference League.
But whilst the reports on these shores originated via Herald and Times Sport, there was something of a disagreement in the Scottish sports press regarding potential interest.
The Scottish Sun almost immediately claimed that the move was not on the cards in a report which poured cold water on any Rangers links to Vladan Kovacevic.
But now it’s the newspaper who’re being undermined as a report in Poland insists Rangers’ interest in the Bosnian is legitimate.
Rangers links to Vladan Kovacevic reportedly legitimate
Polish outlet Sportowe Fakty are claiming that a series of clubs from across Europe have one eye on Vladan Kovacevic ahead of the summer.
Claiming that Rangers’ interest is “real” the report also lists German outfit Augsburg, Belgian side Royal Antwerp and Polish sides Lech Poznan and Legia Warsaw as suitors, though they admit an internal move is unlikely.
It’s an interesting take on things and certainly adds a new dimension to those Rangers links to Vladan Kovacevic ahead of the new season.
It remains unclear what will happen with the goalkeeping situation at Ibrox with no decision on Allan McGregor’s future being taken as things stand.
Stand-in Ibrox stopper Jon McLaughlin has been handed a new two-year deal at the club and there’s growing expectation that it’s the Scotland international’s time at the club.
Meanwhile, an influential Gers partner has struck a new deal at the scene of a major European heartbreak for the Ibrox side.
