Contact has been made with the player’s representatives about the possibility of him signing a one-year deal to move north of the border. A number of Championship clubs are also said to be interested in the centre-back.

Gerrard has made the position one of his top priorities since agreeing to become the next manager at Ibrox, with a move for Brighton defender Connor Goldson also in the works.

McAuley has made 79 appearances for his country. He famously scored the first goal in a Euro 2016 victory over Ukraine, a result which heavily contributed to Michael O’Neill’s side reaching the knockout stages.
