Hutton tips Rangers to double their money on Helander amid transfer update
Alan Hutton has tipped Rangers to cash in on Filip Helander for a “fair price” this summer.
The former Ibrox star, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, suggested the 27-year-old centre-back could be one player sold by Steven Gerrard at the end of the season.
As revealed by Football Insider, Rangers will demand a £6million-plus price tag for Helander amid reported interest from the Premier League.
He signed from Bologna in 2019 for £3.5million including add-ons.
Aftonbladet in his native Sweden claim the likes of Aston Villa and Leicester City could make a move for Helander this summer.
Hutton suggested Rangers would do well to double their money on the defender.

He also warned other Ibrox stars could be sold if the price is right.
“I think £6million’s fair. We’re talking about more or less doubling your money,” Hutton told Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge.
“I think he’s come in and done an excellent job, he’s a very good defender. He’s aware of everything that’s going on round about him and that’s good for a defender.
“That’s what he’s good at. He’s had that experience in the European leagues and European competitions and stuff so he’s a very sound defender.
“Everybody’s got a fee on their head if you want and if that’s met, any Rangers player will leave. If they get that money that they want, it’s a no brainer for them. I think if the fee is met that they all agree with, then he could be one that goes.”
Helander has played 45 times for Rangers since his move from Italy in 2019.
Gerrard also has the likes of Connor Goldson, Leon Balogun and Jack Simpson to call upon at centre-back.
