COMMENT By Derek Smithson
Rangers will lose defender Clint Hill in the summer as his contract expires and they should look to Leicester man Marcin Wasilewski as a like-for-like replacement.
Pedro Caixinha is set to undergo a busy summer transfer window and make his side strong enough to compete at the top-end of the table.
Hill, 38, is one of many players expected to leave Ibrox in the summer and his experience is something that the Gers will miss.
Caixinha has the right idea by looking to bring in young players and a higher quality of football, but you also need experienced campaigners that can help you grind out results in the Scottish league.
Hill chipped in with an impressive six goals from centre-back and his leadership qualities will be a big miss.
However, available centre-back Wasilewski could be the perfect replacement for Rangers as his existing deals expires at Leicester in the summer.
The 36-year-old is a powerful figure who is brilliant in the air and it’s easy to imagine him succeeding at Ibrox.
He leaves the King Power Stadium as a popular figure after four years with the Foxes and made 77 senior appearances for them.
Wasilewski certainly still has a couple more years left in him and should fancy one final bite at success with Rangers, who will be able to offer the Europa League.
His experience and know-how is something that the Gers need to keep in their squad despite Caixinha’s expected changes and a free transfer for the Leicester man would be a smart addition.
