Rangers source rejects ties to Coventry midfielder star


Rangers insist they have no interest in Coventry midfielder Gustavo Hamer following links to the Brazil-born player.

The 23-year-old has impressed for the Sky Blues since a £ 1.2million move to Dutch side PEC Zwolle last year. As such, sources in the West Midlands claimed he was on the radar of Scottish Premiership leaders.

However, a source from Ibrox said: “There is nothing at all in this.”

Source insists Hamer is not on any target list for this manager Steven gerrard and athletic director Ross Wilson are watching.

Rangers got in touch with Aberdeen this week over attacking midfielder Scott Wright. The 23-year-old falls out of contract this summer.

However, players are more likely to leave Ibrox than arriving in January. The likes of Greg Stewart and Jordan Jones have struggled to buy time and have been linked with moves.

Meanwhile, former Ibrox midfielder Alex Rae hailed Steven Davis as the Rangers’ “orchestrator”. The 36-year-old is preparing to make his 300th appearance for the Gers against Motherwell on Sunday.

Rae said ten10podcasts.com: “What a wonderful servant he has been to the game in general. He also had a remarkable career with the Rangers.

“He’s about to take another big step forward and it’s great to see him back at Rangers because he has certainly brought a level of performance and standards that we’ve been used to for decades.

“He’s essential, he’s like the orchestrator in the middle of the park. He’s pulling the strings and he’s a guy, if I was a younger midfielder like (Glen) Kamara or (Joe) Aribo in and around the Rangers I would watch this guy, watch what he brings to the table.

Davis a “ professional model ”

“He’s a professional model, to always perform at his age and what he’s done in the game, a record 124 caps for Northern Ireland. He was brilliant.

“I’ll be honest with you, when he first came back I had my reservations and it took him four, five months to get up to speed and there were question marks, but my God, he hasn’t hit the ground this season?

“They have six midfielders at Rangers at the moment, but it must be said that he is the first to start.

“He slows down the game, speeds up the game and still has the brilliant knack of being in the right place when teams are counterattacking.

“I think he’s vital for Steven Gerrard and the way he plays with full-backs bombing forward.”
