Martin Skrtel’s agent says the finances needed to do his deal to Rangers are ‘terribly far apart’.
The Fenerbahce defender has been regularly linked with a move to the Ibrox club since Steven Gerrard was announced as their new manager.
Both played together at Liverpool and developed a close bond over seven years at Anfield.
Now it’s believed that Gerrard wants to sign Skrtel as he gets to work strengthening the Rangers squad for his first season in management.
And while agent Karol Csonto insists Skrtel would love to play for Gerrard, he admits that finances are ‘terribly far apart’.
“Martin has sincerely said it would be an honour for him to play under Steven’s direction for three years. There are, however, complex financial matters. They are terribly far apart.”
Csonto doesn’t go into details so it’s not clear if he believes the complex financial matters are down to Rangers, the player or Fenerbahce.
But it casts doubts over whether or not Rangers would be able to do a deal to bring the experienced centre back to Glasgow this summer.
He signed for Fenerbahce in a reported £5million move in 2016 and has played 69 times for the club since.
It looks like Rangers may have to cough up close to £3m to be able to get their man.
