Jon Flanagan is currently undergoing a medical and is set to become the latest player to join up with Steven Gerrard at Ibrox, according to a report.

The Evening Times claims that should the medical go as planned the former Liverpool right-back will join up with his new team-mates in their training camp in Spain.

Flanagan will become the seventh signing since Gerrard became the main man at Ibrox, and Gerrard is well aware of his qualities after the duo played together at Liverpool.

Football Insider verdict

Steven Gerrard obviously believes that defence is the most important part of his side, and after signing two centre-backs he has now moved to bring in a right-back. Despite his troubles in recent years, and lack of playing time at Bolton last season, Gerrard must feel that Flanagan still has plenty to offer for the Gers. Perhaps the most interesting aspect of this impending transfer is how if will affect the Gers future of James Tavernier. Tavernier has been a Gers mainstay for the last three seasons, but with the arrival of Flanagan he will now face competition from a player that Gerrard has been familiar with for many years, and who could well become the first choice right-back going into next season. It is another interesting transfer move from Gerrard and Gers director of football Mark Allen, who don’t seem afraid of making a raft of changes as they move to shape the Gers team in their image.
