According to the Sunday Post, Rangers are still looking to sign Hamilton Academical goalkeeper Michael McGovern - but may have to wait until Euro 2016 is over.

The Gers are looking to add players ahead of their return to the Scottish Premiership, and whilst four midfielders have been added to the squad already, it's now time for Mark Warburton to tackle other areas of the pitch.

With January signing Maciej Gostomski already gone and Cammy Bell out of contract next summer, another goalkeeper could be of interest to Warburton, with first choice stopper Wes Foderingham need some real competition behind him.

Reports from Turkish newspaper Haberturk earlier this week that Rangers are looking to bring in Trabzonspor's Costa Rican international goalkeeper Esteban Alvarado, but reports now claim that the Gers could look closer to home for reinforcements in goal.

The Sunday Post report that, having been linked with a move earlier in the year, Rangers are still keen to bring in experienced shot stopper Michael McGovern.

The 31-year-old is in line to start in goal for Northern Ireland when they take on Poland later today, as the ex-Celtic man will feature at Euro 2016, in what will be a huge moment for the free agent.

McGovern's contract with Hamilton Academical is expiring this month, meaning he will be a free agent and can sign for any club, with Rangers believed to be keen on moving for him.

However, it's also claimed that McGovern will delay any decision on his future until the European Championships are over for him, which could be as soon as June 21st or as late as July 10th, depending on how far Northern Ireland progress - meaning Rangers may have to wait if they do want to bring him to Ibrox.
