Rangers On Alert With Club Expected To Sell £1.5m Rated Defender To Cover Costs

Rangers are one of six clubs keeping an eye on centre-back Jack Tucker’s situation at Gillingham, according to reports in the English media.

The Gills are struggling to make ends meet during the suspension of football fixtures, and it is expected that they will have to sell players in order to pay the wages of staff and players.

Tucker was reported to be a £1.5m transfer target for the Gers last month, but the Scottish club are facing competition from the likes of Old Firm rivals Celtic, West Ham, Southampton, Norwich and Leeds for the 20-year-old’s signature.


At the moment, Gillingham are holding talks with the PFA about deferring their future wages, but that may not be enough to stave off financial difficulties.

A sale of a key asset like Tucker may also be needed. The defender is a centre-back by trade, but he has also played at right-back on several occasions this campaign.
