Rangers defender approached by European club about summer move - report

By Derek Smithson

Rangers defender Philippe Senderos has received an offer to join Swiss club Servette, according to a report.

The Daily Record claim that the 32-year-old has been approached by Servette to join them, with the centre-back available on a free transfer as his contract at Ibrox expires in the summer.

It is understood that he had also been shortlisted to becoming Sporting Director at Grasshoppers Zurich, but missed out on the role.

Senderos has endured a nightmare year with the Gers and doesn’t feature in Pedro Caixinha’s plans for next season.

The former Arsenal defender has been unable to prove himself in Scottish football and fallen down the pecking order this year.

He made just four senior appearances across all competitions and is now set to be given a lifeline by Servette from his homeland Switzerland.

Football Insider verdict: 

Senderos has been unable to force his way into contention at Rangers and his short stay with the Scottish club seemed ruined after his nightmare performance against Celtic. The centre-back was shown a red card on his debut against the Old Firm rivals as his side lost 5-1 and wasn’t considered for the first team following Caixinha’s mid-season arrival. He has shown in the earlier stages of his career that he has the know-how and a move back to Switzerland would be in his best interests. Senderos’ main flaw is the lack of pace and it’s no surprise that Caixinha is preapred to let him leave.

In other Rangers transfer news, they are in talks for a Championship midfielder.
