Three current Scotland internationals Rangers should sign to close gap with Celtic
COMMENT By Harvey Byrne
Rangers currently have just one player in the Scotland national team in the form of captain Lee Wallace.
This goes against the Gers’ history which has seen the likes of Barry Ferguson, Ally McCoist and John Greig to name but a few who have all starred for the Scottish national team alongside playing a key role for the Ibrox giants.
Additionally, with the club adding further internationals to their side in the summer it is assumed they will help them close the current 33-point gap between themselves and fierce rivals Celtic.
Now, Football Insider have cast their eye over the current Scotland squad and have identified three possible targets for Pedro Caixinha in the summer:
Scottish publication the Edinburgh News reported earlier in March that the Gers were eyeing the powerful Ipswich centre-back.
It was stated that he was looking for a return to Scotland with his contract with the English Championship side set to expire in the summer.
The experienced 32-year-old would certainly be a solid addition to a Rangers defence which has often received criticism this season and having still featured in 39 matches in all competitions for the Tractor Boys, he has shown he still has what it takes to compete.
Anya grew up a Rangers supporter and has not started a league game for Derby since being hauled off on the hour mark in a 0-0 draw against Burton in February.
It would seem like now would be the perfect time for the 29-year-old to return home to Glasgow after a fine career which has seen him play in the Premier League with Watford alongside a spell with Granada in La Liga.
The left sided attacker is known for his flair and would certainly add something which is currently missing from the Gers team.
Fletcher, 29, has had a fine career in England with each of Burnley, Wolves, Sunderland and now Sheffield Wednesday.
However, with the additions of both Jordan Rhodes and Sam Winnall to the Owls alongside already having Gary Hooper at the club, Fletcher may find first team football harder to come by in the future.
The former Hibernian star hit 37 goals in 121 matches in his last spell in the Premiership and one last attempt in a top league with Rangers could tempt him in the summer, especially if Martyn Waghorn leaves.
