Hutton has 'one fear' for Rangers after source's medical reveal
Alan Hutton is worried about the lack of experienced players at Rangers ahead of next season.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Gers defender said his “one fear” is that the kind of players Michael Beale wants to bring to Ibrox are too young and inexperienced.
Last week (1 May), sources told this site that the Gers are exploring the conditions of a potential deal for Aston Villa sensation Tim Iroegbunam.
Beale is believed to be a huge admirer of the 19-year-old who he previously worked with at QPR.
The Light Blues are also closing in on a deal for Norwich City’s Kieran Dowell, 25, who has had a medical at Ibrox as his free transfer from Carrow Road inches closer.
The Glasgow club are also set to lose experienced players including Allan McGregor, Alfredo Morelos, Ryan Kent, Scott Arfield and Steven Davis whose contracts expire this summer.

Hutton is worried Beale’s targets won’t offer enough big game experience.
“That is my one fear,” he told Football Insider.
“That the players that it looks like are leaving are experienced players, they have experienced European finals, winning leagues, winning trophies. I think it could be a mistake to let them all go.
“If you look at the likes of Arfield, Jack, Davis, McGregor, Morelos, Kent, I think you have to keep some for their experience, I am all for that.
“Especially if you look at the type of players they are wanting to bring in, the likes of [Morgan] Whittaker, Dowell, [Todd] Cantwell and [Nicolas] Raskin are already there, these are young guys.
“If you are bringing in seven or eight young players who are inexperienced, you need to older heads round about them to guide them.“
