It was reported that the Italian international midfielder had rejected a move to Ibrox after leaving Russian champions Zenit St Petersburg in the summer.

See 16 possible options.

The former West Ham striker last played in Thailand after spells in Saudi Arabia and the UAE. Can play wide or come in as third-choice forward.

Was last playing in South Korea. Experienced English midfielder with nearly 80 Premier League appearances.
An incredibly talented forward whose career has been hampered by injury.
Made a big move to Swansea when they were in the Premier League but struggled. Could be an option at left-back.
The former Rangers star. A back-up to James Tavernier?
The Scotland international is waiting for the right move. Been linked with a move to the Old Firm before.
Could provide a central attacking option to help with creativity.
On trial with Birmingham City. Was once highly-rated at Chelsea. Gerrard could see him as a project.
If Gerrard wants an attacking full-back to provide support to Tavernier the Italian could be an option.
The midfield powerhouse would give the Rangers a strong platform. Has European and international experience.
The ex-Real Madrid star has 52 Portugal caps. Spent last season with Rio Ave. A left-back...
The left-back was linked with a move to Ibrox earlier in the summer.
Had a trial with Celtic cancelled this summer. Another option to provide Tavernier with competition.
A possible third-choice striker. A strong focal point.
A talent that should be brought to Scottish football!
Mercurial, injury-prone, a No.10. What a risk he would do.
