Rangers are not averse to bringing players back to the club if the situation demands it. Case in point: the 36-year-old Allan McGregor has returned, and will be a contender for the goalkeeping position next season.

There is another player who should be consider for a return, who has spent the last season playing at a higher level than McGregor – Alan Hutton.

Hutton left the Gers 10 years ago to join Tottenham and has had a bit of a chequered career since then, but he seems to have enjoyed a rebirth at Aston Villa under Steve Bruce.

However, Villa’s loss in the Championship play-off means that Hutton’s time at the club is set to come to an end, and with his contract running out at the end of the season, a return to Ibrox could well be on the agenda.

If he stays fit – which has been the problem recently – Hutton could be a valuable addition to the Gers squad. The 33-year-old played 33 times for Villa last season, and he has the experience and nous that a lot of the current Gers side lack.

Incoming Gers boss Steven Gerrard will be looking for players who have seen and done it all to add to his squad to give it some much needed experience.

The signing of McGregor is an example of that, and a move for the 6ft 1 Hutton could reap similar rewards.
