Rangers name gets dropped into a lot of transfer speculation, usually when agents are trying to get a transfer fee bumped up and earn themselves a bigger pay day in the process.

One recent rumour though was more about the Gerrard connection with former England centre-half Gary Cahill said to be under consideration by the Light Blues recruitment team.

The Champions League and Europa League winner has 61 caps to his name so coping with the demands of Scottish football is unlikely to be an issue, with BBC pundit Danny Mills claiming that he would be a “top-quality signing” as told to Football Insider:

“He looks after himself, keeps himself fit. He’s solid, reliable and very, very experienced.

“He’s a good professional and I think that would be a top-quality signing. He’s a player who’s been there, done it and won it all.

“It’s a great opportunity for other players to learn from him in training and in matches. They can learn from the way he conducts himself and all those types of things.

“We all know that the standard of the Scottish Premiership is not the greatest in the world so in terms of quality it’s not a problem.

“It’s also what else he brings, that’s what’s really important.”

Cahill would surely only have been a target had Connor Goldson not extended his contract, however, that now appears to be sorted, with Leon Balogun and Filip Helander already at the club, the need for a fourth centre-half of even greater experience just isn’t required – after all, the ones that are there broke every record going last season, I think we, and the manager can trust them to get the job done.
