Report: Rangers trialist Reece Wabara not yet offered contract to stay at Ibrox permanently

Rangers FC

Rangers are reportedly yet to offer a deal to right back Reece Wabara.

According to the Daily Mail, Rangers have yet to offer a contract to full back Reece Wabara - despite pushing ahead with a move to sign Andy Halliday.

Wabara, 23, left Doncaster Rovers at the end of his contract this summer, and arrived alongside Halliday for trials under new Rangers boss Mark Warburton.

However, the Daily Mail report that whilst Warburton is set to offer Halliday a deal to stay permanently, there has been no such offer made to Wabara.

It's also stated that the former Manchester City defender remains under consideration ahead of the new season, but recent reports of interest in Ryan Fredericks could mean Rangers are looking elsewhere.

The Daily Record recently suggested that Rangers are set to hold talks with Tottenham over a loan move for right back Fredericks - and his potential arrival could leave Wabara out in the cold and looking for a new club.

Wabara or Fredericks?

Rangers need a new right back having released Sebastien Faure and Richard Foster this summer, and it looks increasingly like Warburton will choose between Fredericks and Wabara.

Fredericks played for Brentford during Warburton's time at the club, and would be eager to play first team football after limited appearances for Middlesbrough last term.

However, Rangers only having a player on loan could be a blessing and a curse, as Fredericks would have to head back to Tottenham at the end of his stay - whereas Wabara could be tied down for years to come. With his pace and attacking ability, Wabara could be the better option; but Warburton's familiarity with Fredericks could sway his decision.
