Rangers pursuit of defender hangs in the balance - report

By Will Butcher

Former Arsenal defender Philippe Senderos has thrown his potential Rangers move into doubt as he awaits offers from other clubs, according to a report.

The Daily Express claim the 31-year-old has agreed provisional terms with the Scottish giants after passing a medical at Ibrox following a successful trial this month.

However, it is said that Senderos is stalling a move to Mark Warburton’s side as he waits to see what offers come in from other interested clubs before the transfer window closes.

Spanish second-tier side Alcoron have been credited with an interest, while German outfit 1860 Munich could also make an eleventh hour offer for the Switzerland international.

German newspaper Bild claimed that 1860 were interested in the 57-time international, as manager Kosta Ranjaic weighed up his options.

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.

During his time at Highbury and the Emirates, Senderos starred in 114 fixtures in all competitions between 2003 to 2010 and won the 2004/05 FA Cup.

Rangers have been keen to bring in experience as they look to challenge Celtic for the Scottish Premiership title. Clint Hill, Joey Barton and Niko Kranjcar are among Warburton’s new signings, as is Championship hitman Joe Garner.

In other Rangers transfer news, this former centre-back target has resigned for Premier League side Watford.
