Sources: Rangers will accept 6-figure fee for Ibrox left footer in January

Rangers will accept a six-figure fee for Greg Stewart in January as the prospect grows he will head out of Ibrox next year, Football Insider understands.

The 30-year-old forward is out of contract at the end of the season and has barely figured in the Light Blues’ remarkable campaign.

Ibrox sources have told Football Insider that Rangers are aware of interest from SPL clubs in Stewart and would let him go next month for a fee of less than £500,000.

There is not expected to be intense transfer activity at the club next month, and certainly not compared to recent January windows.

The main priority of Steven Gerrard and the Rangers board is fending off interest in their stars from top Premier League and European clubs.

The likes of James Tavernier, Ryan Kent, Glen Kamara, Connor Goldson and Alfredo Morelos are all being eyed by top clubs.

Stewart will not command anywhere near the same kind of fee.

However, the left-footed attacker’s wages may be a major issue for some cash-strapped Scottish Premiership clubs.

Stewart has made just four appearances for Rangers this season and his only start came in a Europa League qualifier in September.

Tellingly, the summer-of-2019 signing did not even make the 20-man matchday squad for Wednesday’s shock 3-2 Scottish League Cup defeat to St Mirren.

 

His potential exit comes as Rangers work on a deal to sign Colombia sensation Juan Alegria.

He has reached an agreement in principle to move to Ibrox next month but the potential transfer has been complicated by government Brexit talks and potentially new regulations.
