Blackburn Rovers defender Grant Hanley has told The Scottish Sun that he will 'see what happens' with his future at Ewood Park this summer.

Hanley, 24, has been a regular for Blackburn since making his debut in 2010, and has now racked up almost 200 appearances for Rovers.

A Scotland international with 21 caps to his name, Hanley has impressed with his size and physical ability, and whilst he's not the quickest centre back around, the 6ft 3in defender has impressed for Blackburn.

Now though, speculation surrounds his future. The Sun reported earlier this month that Fulham were keen to land Hanley, with Blackburn looking for a fee of around £2.5m.

One of the more intriguing transfer rumours came from The Times, as they claim that Rangers boss Mark Warburton is keen to land Hanley this summer and improve his defence ahead of the big return to the Scottish Premiership.

A Rangers fan who had a spell at Ibrox as a youngster, Hanley is being heavily linked with a return to Glasgow - and he's now been asked about the situation.

The Scottish Sun asked Hanley about the interest from both Fulham and Rangers, and the defender was somewhat non-committal, suggesting that he will simply see what happens as Blackburn seek a new manager following Paul Lambert's departure.

"I’m away with Scotland just now so I’m concentrating on this and we’ll see what happens with Blackburn Rovers when I go back," said Hanley. "Hopefully a new manager will be named soon and I’ll pick up from pre-season," he added.
