Rangers are poised to bring a new defender to Ibrox.

According to the Daily Record, Rangers are poised to tie up a deal for Clint Hill in the next 48 hours - having offered him a coaching role at Ibrox.

The Gers have added players like Jordan Rossiter and Joey Barton to their ranks already, but now Mark Warburton will be looking to add some steel to his defence.

Rob Kiernan and Danny Wilson - two signings from last summer - were Warburton's first-choice centre back pairing last season, but they endured some ups and downs, with Rangers lacking a veteran presence at the back.

Having been linked with names like Kolo Toure and Steven Taylor, it's now suggested that another ex-Premier League defender is on his way to Ibrox in Clint Hill.

The Daily Record report that Rangers have been in talks with Hill about a move to Glasgow, and the deal should be completed inside the next 48 hours.

Hill, 37, is a free agent having left Queens Park Rangers at the end of last season, and would reunite with his former team-mate Joey Barton at Ibrox.

It's believed that a deal for Hill is close after the defender - who can play at left back or centre back - was offered the inclusion of a coaching role alongside his playing duties under Warburton.

That appears to have tempted Hill into signing, and it's claimed that the player is expected to start pre-season training with Rangers on Saturday with the rest of his team-mates.
