Rangers have again been linked with a move for Fenerbahce defender Martin Skrtel this January, months after heavy speculation he could be set for a reunion with Ibrox boss Steven Gerrard.
Turkish outlet Fanatik claims that Gerrard has been in touch with the former Liverpool stopper about a potential move to Glasgow, with his contract set to expire at the end of the current season.
Despite being 34 years of age, Skrtel continues to play at a good level, with his experience and quality potential being a fantastic capture in the middle of a title race with Celtic.
However, the whole thing does seem far fetched, with Rangers unlikely able to match the wages on offer to the 6ft 3in defender.
Rangers supporters aren’t convinced at all the move will come off and some even feel like we shouldn’t be spending serious wages on a player entering the twilight stages of his career.
It’s one to watch before the end of January.
These fans took to Twitter this week to discuss the potential move…
Should have left the Martin Skrtel rumours in 2018, no chance were getting him

Skrtel rumours every second day now. It’s the new “Alan Smith” rumour.

Won’t happen. He wants too much wages we went through that in the summer. He’s asking for a fortune more than Rangers can pay and refused to take a pay cut. Would absolutely love it to happen, but can’t see it.

Again with the Martin Skrtel rumours?
I was wrong about Jermain Defoe not joining Rangers.
But Martin Skrtel is definitely NOT joining Rangers.
