Five possible American based players Rangers could be trying to sign after Mark Warburton's latest comments

Glasgow Rangers boss Mark Warburton has confirmed that he is trying to bring two American based players to Ibrox.

With Glasgow Rangers boss Mark Warburton confirming that he has had discussions with two American based players (Sky Sports), we take a look at five potential options he could be trying to bring to Ibrox.

Niko Kranjcar

Kranjcar is a known target of Rangers, and he is likely to be one of the players that Warburton has spoken to.

The experienced Croatian is said to be close to a move to Rangers, and he could make a move to Glasgow in the coming weeks.

Fanendo Adi

Adi has been linked with Rangers on Twitter, but so far there has been no proof behind the claims that he could join the Ibrox side.

Adi has scored a sizeable amount of goals for Portland Timbers this season, and he could enhance Rangers’ forward options if he was to join.

Frank Lampard

Lampard’s time in America has been nothing short of a disaster so far, and a move to Scotland may appeal.

Although affording his wages could be an obstacle, Rangers are looking to add experience and Lampard would be an eye-catching addition.

Lampard has barely played for New York City since joining, and although his arrival at Ibrox would be unlikely, it is not beyond the realms of all possibility.

Steven Gerrard

Gerrard is expected to leave MLS football at the end of his current contract, which expires in December.

The Liverpool legend is widely tipped to take on a coaching role at Anfield when he leaves LA Galaxy, but Rangers may have a chance of convincing him that another year of playing would be good for him.

Gerrard has been linked with Celtic for a considerable amount of time, so if Rangers were able to clinch the deal it would be a signal of intent and allow them to get one over on their rivals.

Bradley Wright-Phillips

Wright-Phillips’ career in English football was not particularly eye-catching.

Wright-Phillips spent time at the likes of Plymouth, Charlton and Brentford before moving to the New York Red Bulls.

The switch to MLS has done wonders for the striker, though, and he has become a prolific scorer.

Wright-Phillips has netted 54 goals in 96 appearances for the Red Bulls, and he would surely be a good addition for Rangers, if Warburton could do a deal.
