According to the Dundee Courier, Dundee United want to sign Rangers goalkeeper Cammy Bell - and have already opened talks with the player about a move.

Bell, 29, was a highly-rated goalkeeper with Kilmarnock, but made a surprise move in 2013, joining Rangers despite them only just winning promotion from the fourth tier of Scottish football.

Once capped by Scotland, Bell made over 50 appearances in his first two seasons at Ibrox, but a major injury and the arrival of Mark Warburton as manager has seen him become something of a forgotten man in Glasgow.

Bell didn't play at all this past season, as Wes Foderingham established himself as Rangers' first choice goalkeeper - and when Warburton signed Maciej Gostomski in January, who has already left the club, it became clear that Bell wasn't really figuring in the plans at Ibrox.

Now with just one year left on his contract at Rangers, Bell looks set to leave this summer - and the Dundee Courier report that Dundee United are keen to rescue the goalkeeper.

New manager Ray McKinnon wants an experienced goalkeeper to marshal his side following their relegation to the Championship, and Bell is seen as the ideal candidate for the Terrors.

In fact, the report claims that McKinnon has already held talks with Bell about a move to Tannadice, having been trying to sign him for many weeks now - and with no future at Rangers, a deal could be very swift.

Do you think it's time for Bell to leave Rangers?
