Betting update: Rangers made favourites to sign £8m Liverpool attacker in sensational move
By Will Butcher
Rangers have been made odds-on favourites to sign Liverpool striker Danny Ings.
The former Burnley man had his odds slashed to 4/5 by betting company SkyBet on Friday afternoon to make a sensational move to Ibrox.
He is considered more likely to be at Rangers than at Liverpool next season, with Sky Bet making him evens to remain at Anfield.
Manager Mark Warburton is looking for reinforcements and wants to capitalise on Ings uncertain future amid speculation that Liverpool could allow the 23-year-old to go out on loan for a season.
Ings is likely to start next season behind Divock Origi and Daniel Sturridge in the striker pecking order and could also be behind Christian Benteke if the former Aston Villa man remains at Anfield.

Ings has also been linked with a move to Rangers’ Old-Firm rivals Celtic and the possibility of reuniting with former manager Brendan Rodgers.
A transfer to Ibrox would be sensational given Ings’ calibre and value. The Merseysiders were ordered to pay Burnley £8million by an independent tribunal for the player even though he moved to Anfield last summer when his contract had expired.
Liverpool signed the England international after he impressed for Burnley during the 2014-15 season, where he scored 11 Premier League goals.
Ings had started this season in reasonable fashion, scoring two Premier League goals in six games before a knee injury forced him to miss the rest of the campaign.
