Report gives update on Rangers' alleged pursuit of Dan Glazer

The Scottish Sun has provided an update after the Herald and Times reported Rangers were pursuing Israel international Dan Glazer.

The Herald and Times claimed on Thursday that the Gers were competing with several English Championship clubs for the 23-year-old, who has made 79 career appearances for Maccabi Tel Aviv.

Glazer has travelled to Glasgow ahead of his country’s opening Nations League fixture against Scotland at Hampden Park on Friday evening.

However, the Scottish Sun reports that sources at Ibrox insist there is no interest in the defensive midfielder.

Interestingly, though, there has been no such rebuttal of a report from iSport.cz that the club are very interested in Genk midfielder, Patrik Hrosovsky. 

The Gers have already snapped up two players from the Belgian Pro League this summer – signing Hrosovsky’s former teammate Ianis Hagi as well as Kemar Roofe from Anderlecht.

Rangers deny interest in Dan Glazer – Verdict

The club have moved quickly to bury this rumour and it may bring a sigh of relief to some supporters.

Glazer is an international and who has won multiple league titles at Maccabi Tel Aviv.

Yet, he is a defensive-minded player with a poor goals and assists return, which isn’t the kind of signing many fans are crying out for.

The Gers are lacking dynamism in the middle of the park and someone like Hrosovsky, who can drift between the lines and create opportunities, would likely be a better acquisition.
