Alan Hutton has suggested that Rangers may offload defender Matt Polster during the summer transfer window.

The former Gers and Scotland star, speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, admits that the 26-year-old right-back has become a bit of a forgotten figure during his year-and-two-months at Ibrox.

The USA international signed a two-and-a-half-year deal with the Light Blues from Chicago Fire back in January 2019.

However, he has struggled to make a meaningful impact under Steven Gerrard, with just 10 appearances under his belt to date.

With a year left on his contract this summer, Hutton believes that Rangers could cash in on Polster after suggesting he has not made his mark in the dressing room either.

Asked what he thought might happen to the defender, Hutton told Football Insider: “You just reminded me of him, even though he played the last couple of games when Tavernier was injured.

“It’s a strange one, I must admit. We haven’t really seen an awful lot of him, it’s difficult to judge and I’ve not really heard anything – he’s a guy who keeps himself to himself because I don’t really hear much.

“He came in out the cold and I wouldn’t say he had the best performances. You’re going from nowhere near it to being flung in for a few games and expected to be a ten out of ten – it’s difficult.

Matt Polster makes rare appearance for Rangers

“It’s maybe another one that Gerrard will be looking at in the summer to have a clear-out and to get some fresh faces in.”  

Polster has played nine times for Rangers this season, although only three of those have been starts in the Premiership.
