According to a report in the Peterborough Evening Telegraph, Glasgow Rangers manager Mark Warburton is keen on bringing ex-Barnet striker Matthew Stevens to Ibrox.

Stevens’ contract with Barnet has just expired, and he has just become a free agent.

Although any interested club would have to pay compensation for the youngster if they did sign him, the fee is expected to be minimal and he has caught the eye of Mark Warburton.

Rangers have already targeted players from the Football League, and it seems that Stevens could be the next player brought to Ibrox.

Stevens made 12 first team appearances for Barnet last season, and scored twice.

If he did sign for Rangers he would likely be used in their development squad, but the 18-year-old appears to have a very bright future.

Rangers are believed to face competition from Peterborough United for Stevens, with Grant McCann’s side also keen on the prospect.

If Stevens did move to Rangers he would become the Ibrox side’s fifth signing of the summer, as the Light Blues look to strengthen for their first season back in the Scottish Premiership.
