Premier League midfielder tipped for Ibrox move

Former England international Gabriel Agbonlahor reckons Sheffield United midfielder John Lundstram would be keen on a move to Rangers.

The 26-year-old’s current deal expires at the end of the season and there has been little progress over a new deal.

Agbonlahor told Football Insider: “I’ve heard he’s not agreed a contract, maybe that’s wages they can’t agree. If Rangers can pay the money that he wants then maybe it suits him.

Turnbull compared to Gerrard

Former Scotland and Rangers manager Alex McLeish has compared Celtic ace David Turnbull to the likes of Steven Gerrard and Paul McStay.

The midfield playmaker is set to take centre stage against Rangers on Saturday in the Old Firm clash.

McLeish told Football Insider: “When you go back to the Celtic legends coming from deep midfield he’s like Paul McStay, Murdo MacLeod, I’m winding the clock back to my era, but there were a lot of greats that played for Celtic that made deep midfield runs.

“He’s not a deep midfielder but he’s a kind of box-to-box player. He’ll make those shrewd run we’ve seen the likes of Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard do."

Rangers join Celtic in race for ace

Rangers are set to join the race for Charlton Athletic star Alfie Doughty.

According to the Athletic, the Ibrox side will be one of a number of sides, including Celtic and Fulham, who could make a move for the speedster.

The 21-year-old can play as a left-back or on the wing and is out of contract at the end of the season.
