Rangers have been linked with a move from Fenerbahce defender Martin Skrtel with a report suggesting that the Scottish Premiership side have made an offer of £4million for the 33-year-old, according to a report.
Sabah, the Turkish media outlet, claimed that the Light Blues have submitted their offer for Steven Gerrard’s former teammate but fans were having none of the gossip and questioned the finances behind the rumours.
Many felt that £4m was too high a price to pay for a player in the twilight of his career.
Skrtel moved to the Super Lig in 2016 but it was during his time at Liverpool that he became a household name and where he became a League Cup winner with the Reds.
A current international for Slovakia, the enforcer has made an impressive 97 outings for his nation, scoring six goals in that time – a notable record for a centre-half.
Nonetheless, that does not seem to be enough to tempt supporters of the Light Blues that the defender is worthy of taking a chance with and for £4m, they do not think he is worth it.
Here is what Gers fans had to say on social media in response to the report:
There is no way.. none. That Rangers are spending £4m transfer fee + wages on a 33-year old. Unless it’s Colin Hendry of course.

Not a fan. With refs looking to give any decision against us, skrtel is likely to give away a pen at every corner 😔

If this is true I’m disappointed a man I think could do a job but at 33 there is no resale value money spent foolishly better spending that on McGinn with a future sell on fee
