The transfer window may be shut but Rangers continue to be linked with players, most of them having one thing in common – their contracts expire in 2022.

This is also true for Ciaron Brown, the Northern Ireland international defender who, according to GIVEMESPORT, is a target for the Light Blues:

Rangers are interested in Cardiff City’s Ciaron Brown and continue to monitor developments as to his future, GIVEMESPORT can exclusively reveal.

“In January, he will be able to talk to foreign clubs, making him a potentially attractive target for the Scottish champions as they look to continue building under Steven Gerrard. Having missed out on Champions League qualification, bringing in an international defender with so much of his career ahead of him would be a particularly shrewd move.”

The 23-year old has played in Scotland before, on loan at Livingston and is currently valued at just over £500,000 on Transfermarkt, with the ability to play at both left-back and centre-half, he could be a useful option – especially if he can be landed on a free transfer.

Filip Helander’s injury could determine whether or not Ross Wilson looks to add reinforcements in January, previous targets John Souttar and Danilho Doekhi are in exactly the same position and would be available for reduced fees if they haven’t signed new contracts for their respective clubs by then.

Given his age, Brown would be a signing for the first-team, however, with Jack Simpson and Calvin Bassey already capable of providing cover on that side of the defence, I’m not sure that he is really needed or that he is any better than we already have.

As with a lot of players linked with Rangers, it might just be that he he is a player we are keeping an eye on and that, because of his contract status, he would be relatively risk free and we all know Ross Wilson loves a risk free deal.
