Chris Sutton raves about imminent Rangers deal as 32-yr-old touches down in Glasgow
BT Sport pundit Chris Sutton believes Scotland international Russell Martin will be a good signing for Rangers if the 32-year-old completes his reported move to Ibrox on loan.
Martin has confirmed he arrived in Glasgow on Tuesday morning to put the finishing touches to his move to the Ibrox giants in what is widely believed to be a season-long loan from Norwich City.
The 32-year-old has made over 300 appearances for the Canaries but has struggled for regular game-time this season under Daniel Farke.
Sutton has raved about Martin and says he is a “good leader” and his signing will be “Rangers’ gain.”
“Russell Martin is a loss to Norwich City but Rangers gain… good pro, good leader!” Sutton said on his personal Twitter account.

Martin would be Rangers fifth signing of the January transfer window following the arrivals of Jamie Murphy, Sean Goss and Jason Cummings on loan and Declan John making his move from Cardiff City permanent.
Gers boss Graeme Murty has wasted no time in overhauling his squad in the transfer window with the four new arrivals supplemented by the returns of loanees Andy Halliday and Michael O’Halloran.
If Martin completes his move, he could make his Gers debut against Highland League minnows Fraserburgh in the fourth round of the Scottish Cup on Sunday.
Martin has 29 caps for Scotland but hasn’t appeared in dark blue since the 1-0 win over Slovenia in March 2017.
In other Rangers news, this international is expected to undergo a medical with the Gers on Tuesday.
