Rangers get major boost in pursuit of Mirko Ivanic

Red Star Belgrade may be forced to cash in on Mirko Ivanic to Steven Gerrard’s Rangers after missing out on UEFA Champions League football, according to a report from Mondo.

Rangers were not the only club counting the cost of an early UCL exit last week.

A 2-1 aggregate defeat to Moldovan side FC Sheriff Tiraspol means the Serbian outfit will be denied a seat at the continent’s top table this campaign and that’s not all.

Serbian publication Mondo reports Red Star have been hit hard in the pocket by the club’s shock defeat, with a worrying financial situation potentially forcing the side to cash in on a couple of key players before the transfer window shuts.

Rangers given hope of signing OH Leuven forward

Rangers-linked attacker Thomas Henry’s proposed transfer from OH Leuven to Gent has allegedly stalled despite a claim that it was 95% done.

The Gers were linked with the player last week by Football Insider. It looked as though his future had been sorted, as the Daily Record claimed that he was ‘on the verge’ of joining Gent, with a summer deal ’95 per cent’ done.

However, the Scottish Sun reported that the deal had stalled at the eleventh hour because of a disagreement.

It’s thought that OHL are asking for the £5.1m asking price paid up front while De Buffalo’s are currently only willing to pay it in installments.

Rangers reach full agreement to tie down Finland international

Glen Kamara looks set for a long-term Rangers stay as a report states he has agreed to terms on a new deal.

The Finish star had caused some anxiety at the club with his existing contract set to expire at the end of the campaign.

Earlier in August, it was reported that there had been a breakthrough in discussions, with Glen accepting terms on one condition – that the player be allowed to quit Rangers if a suitable bid arrives.

Now, The Athletic are stating that discussions have gone advanced even further, with Glen now agreeing to pen a fresh deal.

Rangers turn their attention to 26-year-old Oostende star

Rangers are keen on bringing Oostende’s Jack Hendry back to Scotland just months after quitting bitter rivals Celtic.

That’s according to 90Min, who report that Rangers are ‘in the mix’ for his signature as Oostende think about a quick profit.

They took Jack on loan before turning his move permanent for just shy of £2m around eight weeks ago, but the club could sell the player on for more than double that now.
