Hull City centre-back Michael Dawson has admitted it would be nice to have Rangers as an option going into this season’s transfer market.
The 34-year-old is available on a free transfer when his contract with the Tigers comes to an end in June.
Speaking to Alan Brazil’s talkSPORT breakfast show broadcast at 6am on Monday morning, he admitted that there were no plans set in stone for next season and he was waiting for options to come along.
But, when it was put to the former Tottenham man that Rangers could be a possibility, Dawson replied, “It would be nice to have that option.”
Dawson played 324 games for Spurs before being sold to Hull in 2014 for a reported fee of £4million.
Football Insider verdict:
Dawson has amassed a great deal of experience after his many years in the game and would be someone who would add strength in depth and someone the younger and less experienced players could draw knowledge from. The four-time England international has been a mainstay in the Tigers rearguard this season despite his years and while he would not be first-choice in the heart of defence at Rangers, Dawson would certainly be a better option than Bruno Alves who has been continually caught out at the back when he has been called upon by Graeme Murty this season. But it’s yet another sign of the effect Gerrard is already having at Ibrox where players who would previously have scoffed at joining the Scottish Premiership side, they are now considered a real option.
