Andy Goram wants Rangers to sign this former England captain upon their Premiership return

The Gers have opened up a sizeable gap in the Championship.

Former Rangers goalkeeper Andy Goram wants his old club to mark their return to the top-flight by landing one of English football's most high profile players.

The Glasgow side hold a 14-point lead over second-placed Falkirk heading into the final six games of the Championship season, and need just five more to seal their promotion.

It's four years since the Gers last turned out at the highest level of Scottish football and Goram, who won league titles in six of his seven seasons at Ibrox, hopes to mark the occasion in style.

"Wouldn't it be great if Rangers pushed the boat out and signed John Terry for next season to really push for Champions League?" The 51-year-old posted on Twitter.

Terry, whose honours include four Premier League titles, eight domestic cups and a Champions League, is set to leave Chelsea this summer, after 18 years in the Blues' first team.

Despite his advancing years, the 35-year-old's ability remains seemingly intact, so much so there have been numerous calls to include him in England's squad Euro 2016.

Terry, a former Three Lions captain, hasn't played for his country in over four years after being stripped of the captaincy by the English FA.

The defender's capture would hand Gers fans serious bragging rights over their Celtic counterparts, who clamoured for his signing when it was announced that a new contract was not forthcoming.
