Today saw Fulham announce their released players list for the summer with some players of note included. The Championship side confirmed on their official website that Dan Burn, Alex Kacaniklic and Jamie O’Hara have all been released- as have Stephen Arthurworrey, Liam Donnelly, Shane Elworthy, Jordan Evans, Dean O’Halloran, Ian Pino Soler, Ange-Freddy Plumain and Aaron Redford.

Another name on that list, which will surely interest Rangers, was Shaun Hutchinson.

Because, back in 2014, then Rangers boss Ally McCoist was very keen on bringing Hutchinson to Ibrox from his former club Motherwell.

When Hutchinson signed for Fulham in June 2014 the Daily Mail reported he had rejected Rangers in order to head down south to Craven Cottage.

Now Rangers might have a chance of signing him again two years later.

The 25-year-old, who played for the famed Wallsend Boys Club, has not had the best of times in English football.

Since deciding for Fulham over Rangers he has only managed 41 appearances and struggled at times with the pace of the Championship.

He looked far more comfortable in his Motherwell days, when he was one of the best performing central defenders in the Scottish Premiership.

Mark Warburton must be looking for centre-back reinforcements for Rangers this summer. The Ibrox side have lost Dominic Ball for now and leaked goals at the end of last season.

Hutchinson is free, has experience in the Scottish Premiership and still young.

He could be the perfect new recruit for Glasgow Rangers.
