Former Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel has confirmed that Rangers have made contact with his agent over a move to Ibrox.
The 34-year-old has recently left Fenerbahce after three seasons and is currently a free agent as he considers his next move.
Skrtel revealed that Rangers are just one of five teams who have been in contact regarding his future:
“There are offers but I’m not in a hurry to choose my new team. I have some criteria and I have to be patient.”
“My agent made interviews with Basaksehir, Fenerbahce, Parma, Olympiacos and Glasgow Rangers. But I can’t say anything more for now.”
With Gers boss Steven Gerrard having played alongside the Slovakian international for seven years, there’s no doubt that his former teammate will be in his ear trying to persuade him to sign for the Scottish club.
However, Skrtel’s wages are likely to be a problem. Istanbul Basaksehir and Olympiakos, in particular, could probably offer a higher salary, as well as his former side Fenerbahce.
It may be the case that Gerrard now believes he has no chance of signing the Slovakian and has instead trained his sights on securing a deal for Bologna’s Filip Helander.
