Turkish Media Claim Rangers Are Still Trying to Sign Martin Skrtel From Fenerbahçe

Rangers are still in the hunt to sign Fenerbahce defender Martin Skrtel this month, according to reports in the Turkish media this afternoon.

The 34-year-old Slovakian veteran is currently playing in Turkish football after eight years as a regular starter at Liverpool alongside Gers boss Steven Gerrard, playing under managers such as Rafa Benitez and Brendan Rodgers.

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

We told you back in November how Skrtel’s agent claimed Rangers couldn’t afford half of his client’s wages, but Turkish website Fanatik claim Gerrard still wants to be reunited with the centre-half in Glasgow.

With Joe Worrall potentially heading back to parent club Nottingham Forest in the summer at the very latest, and Nikola Katic struggling to prove himself, do Rangers still need some defensive reinforcements?

And would a player of Skrtel’s experience and ability do the trick?
