Danny Mills has heaped praise on Rangers for their transfer strategy of targeting English-based players on pre-contract deals.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former England defender claimed the club’s approach to transfers demonstrates “good business sense” and that the club is being run in a “very good way”.

Football Insider revealed last week the Light Blues are working on multiple pre-contract deals this month as a deal for Aberdeen’s Scott Wright edges closer.

The Glasgow giants are also closing in on a move for Bournemouth’s Jack Simpson but a deal for his teammate Nnamdi Ofoborh is a long way off.

Preston North End midfielder Daniel Johnson remains on the club’s radar after their failed summer pursuit as he has rejected a club-record contract from PNE.

The EFL trio are all out of contract in the summer and are therefore free to negotiate pre-contract deals with Rangers because of cross-border rules.

“It’s what the modern game has become,” Mills told Football Insider.

“And with Brexit everything changes slightly and if you can use that to your advantage then why not? That’s good business sense.

“It goes to show that the club is being run in a very good way and a very sensible way and people are always looking for opportunities.

“The rules around signing so-called foreign players now what used to be considered as the rest of the world now includes all European players as well.”

Rangers

Rangers have not made any permanent signings this window so far after adding six additions in the summer.

The Ibrox giants also added attacking duo Ianis Hagi and Jermain Defoe on permanent deals after they enjoyed loan spells in Glasgow last season.
