Paul Robinson has claimed Rangers would be a “great place” for James Garner to continue his development after the player’s agent hinted at a move.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former England international suggested the Manchester United 20-year-old could learn a lot from Gers manager Steven Gerrard and his assistant Gary McAllister.
Garner is currently on loan at Nottingham Forest, having spent the first half of the 2020-21 campaign at Watford – he has made 34 Championship appearances in total this term.
Speaking to Stretty News, his agent, Steven Beck, revealed that Brighton, Norwich and Rangers are ‘keen’ on signing the midfielder on loan this summer.
Robinson, who is friends with and a former teammate of Gerrard, heaped praise on the Manchester United youngster’s performances of late.
“It just makes me laugh, all of these agents telling people about clubs that are interested in their players,” he told Football Insider.
“He has done exceptionally well down at Nottingham Forest and he will be looking for another loan move next year.
“Rangers will be a great place for anybody to be and learn their trade, especially as a midfielder because Steven Gerrard and Gary Mac are there.
“They’re enjoying great times up at Ibrox right now so I am not surprised to hear his agent try and talk up his client’s chances of playing for Rangers next season, I would be if I was him.”
