Martin Skrtel’s Agent Rules Out a January Move to Rangers

Martin Skrtel’s Agent Rules Out a January Move to Rangers

Martin Skrtel‘s agent has ruled out any chance of the defender making a sensational move to Ibrox to reunite with his former Liverpool team-mate Steven Gerrard.

The 33-year-old Slovakian international is currently playing in Turkish football with Fenerbahce after eight years as a regular starter at Anfield under managers like Rafa Benitez and Brendan Rodgers.

However, Skrtel was linked with a move to Rangers after Gerrard took the reins last summer, and reports have surfaced suggesting the potential transfer could be revived in the January transfer window.

But it seems the chances of the Gers meeting Skrtel’s wage demands are too far flung, according to his agent Karol Csonto.

Speaking via the Daily Record, Csonto explained: “Financially there is no chance of Martin going to Rangers.

“He couldn’t get half of his wages in Glasgow. It would be more like a third.

“Yes, he has great respect for Steven Gerrard but there’s no point in having a discussion because financially it’s just not realistic.”

Given Rangers have drafted Gareth McAuley into their ranks in recent weeks, and already have Joe Worrall, Connor Goldson and Nikola Katic to choose from, do they really need Skrtel?
