Rangers have been alerted to the availability of Aston Villa attacker Ross McCormack, as reported by The Daily Record.
The paper say that the former Ibrox youth player has been told he won’t be featuring for the Villans this season, with a number of teams eager to sign him on a short-term deal.
Earning a reported £40,000-a-week, wages could be a major stumbling block, although you would expect Villa may have to swallow the pill when it comes to paying the majority if they really don’t want him around the club.
You may remember he had a high profile bust-up with manager Steve Bruce last season before moving on loan to Australian side Melbourne City.
With Jamie Murphy’s injury potentially ruling him out for most of the season, looking to the transfer window to add more depth to the attacking midfield positions isn’t the worst idea in the world, especially if there’s a budget move for the likes of McCormack possible.
The player has scored at least 14 goals in four of the last five seasons and would add a significant goal threat to Steven Gerrard’s side.
Although he is now 32, he likely has plenty to offer at Scottish Premiership level.
