After having crashed the party that their fierce rivals would have been having heading into the 2020/21 season, it is Steven Gerrard and Rangers who are celebrating this summer.

Of course, the Gers would go on to lift their first Scottish Premiership title in a decade after going unbeaten throughout the course of the season and storming to the trophy with subsequent ease.

The Light Blues will also be making an appearance in the upcoming UEFA Champions League as a result of their performances and finish in the league, which has led to the Ibrox outfit looking at a number of possible transfer targets this summer to help bolster their squad and potentially replace anyone that may decide to leave Glasgow; Glen Kamara and Alfredo Morelos have both looked among those who could seek a move away from the Scottish city. Those that feel the pair (or at least one of them) will leave Ibrox can look to take advantage of the situation by using the Max Free Bets bonus offers that are avialable.

However, according to recent reports, it would seem that the lure of playing in the UEFA Champions League and under a manager like Gerrard has not been appealing enough for a couple of free agents this summer.

The first player who is thought to have been a target for Rangers is Salih Ozcan, who is a midfielder that has plenty of experience. He is the Germany Under-21 international captain and is currently tied down to 1.FC Koln, although his current deal expires next month.

But, with a potential new manager coming into the football club, it is understood that Ozcan is prepared to hold discussions and potentially extend his stay at the club beyond July, thus providing Rangers a blow in securing the 23-year-old.

Another player who is thought to have been on the radar of Gerrard and Ross Wilson at Ibrox is Colombia international, Rafael Santos Borre, with reports from Blu Radio in Argentina (via Glasgow Live) suggesting a deal could be hard to achieve.

The forward is already out of contract after seeing his deal with River Plate having come to an end, but there are now details emerging that he could be about to re-sign with the Argentine outfit and remain in the capital of Buenos Aires on a deal that will see him double his salary.

In addition, there is believed to be a clause in his contract that will be triggered when clubs match it, however it is one that is thought to put Rangers a little out of reach financially and one that could see their pursuit in Morelos’ international team-mate come to an end.
