Sources: Rangers well placed to sign Norwich City star Angus Gunn

Rangers are well placed to sign Norwich goalkeeper Angus Gunn this summer as they target a new shot-stopper, sources have told Football Insider.

The Ibrox club’s relationship with the Canaries could prove profitable after the two sides collaborated to bring midfielder Todd Cantwell to Glasgow in the January window.

It is believed that Gunn has admirers at Rangers after his performances in the Championship for Norwich, while sporting director Ross Wilson oversaw his arrival at Southampton during his time at the Premier League club.

The Man City youth product made 22 Premier League appearances during his time at the Saints, keeping five clean sheets.

He also played nine times for Norwich in the top flight last season.

Rangers boss Michael Beale has confirmed that summer funds have been set aside for a new keeper signing with Allan McGregor, 41, possibly hanging up his gloves at the end of this season.

Sources told this site on Monday (13 February) that Livingston goalkeeper Shamal George has impressed Ibrox scouts this season as they scour the market for a new shot-stopper.

George and Gunn are likely to be just two of the names on the radar of Beale and his recruitment team this summer.

Gunn was called up to the senior England squad in 2017 during an impressive loan spell at Norwich – and made the bench for a friendly draw against Brazil.

Despite being capped by the Three Lions’ Under-21 side, he is eligible to play for Scotland and is reportedly being considered for a call-up by manager Steve Clarke.

His famous father Bryan, who racked up 234 English top-flight appearances for Norwich, earned six caps for Scotland in the 1990s.

Rangers back-up Jon McLaughlin, 35, has kept eight clean sheets in 16 outings this term.

Third-choice goalkeeper Robby McCrorie is yet to feature in the 2022-23 campaign.
