Rangers priced out of move for veteran midfield enforcer - report

Rangers will not be adding Lucas Levia to Steven Gerrard’s Ibrox revolution, according to a report.

The Scottish Sun claims that the Gers were interested in bringing the Lazio midfielder to Glasgow, but they have been ‘priced out’ of any deal, as he still has two years left to run on his contract with Serie A side Lazio.

Gerrard was looking to add some experience to his midfield and the 31-year-old, who knows Gerrard very well from their time together at Liverpool would have been an ideal candidate, but it is reportedly not to be.

Football Insider verdict

Steven Gerrard will be disappointed that a move for Lucas Levia is seemingly not going to happen, as he would have been an excellent signing. He has seen and done it all in a long career, and he would have been the ideal player to guide Ross McCrorie along in midfield for the Gers. It doesn’t look as if the move is going to happen though, and Gerrard will have to continue looking for reinforcements in the middle of the park for the Gers. A player like Lucas is the sort of player that is needed if you are going to build a credible title challenge, as you need experience in the middle of the park to guide young players forward as often as possible. It will be interesting to see who Gerrard looks to bring in in the middle of the park to give the Gers that bit of experience and determination that will be vital to a proper title challenge from Ibrox next season.
