Sky: Former Arsenal stalwart flies in to link up with Rangers

By Harvey Byrne

Former Arsenal centre-back Philippe Senderos is training with Rangers, according to a report.

The Sky Sports Transfer Centre Blog (11:06) has claimed that the 31-year-old defender has flown to Glasgow to link up with the Scottish giants.

Senderos, who joined Arsenal in his teens, spent most of his career in the Premier League, and also had spells at Everton, Aston Villa and Fulham.

The experienced centre-back is a free agent after his six-month contract at Swiss club Grasshoppers expired in July.

It was at the Gunners where the 57-time capped Switzerland international made his name.

During his time at Highbury and the Emirates, Senderos starred in 117 fixtures in all competitions between 2003 to 2010 and won the FA Cup.

Rangers boss Mark Warburton has been keen to add experience to his newly-promoted side, with the additions of Joey Barton, Clint Hill and Niko Kranjcar to his team.

The Ibrox club have played two Scottish Premiership matches since returning to the top-flight after four-years away.

The country giants beat Dundee 2-1 on Saturday, while playing out out a 1-1 draw against Hamilton in their league opener.

Warburton could be looking to bring a new centre-back to the club, after former AC Milan star Oguchi Onyewu failed to win a contract after training with the club earlier this summer.

In other Rangers transfer news, former midfielder Dominic Ball has joined Rotherham.
