Glasgow Rangers fans appear enthused about the rumours linking them with Adrian Mariappa in the Daily Record.

Mariappa was pictured meeting with Rangers assistant manager David Weir yesterday, sparking rumours that he could be moving to Ibrox.

It is believed that Mark Warburton is keen to bring the Jamaican international to Glasgow, as he looks to upgrade his squad.

Mariappa is available on a free transfer, following the expiration of his contract at Crystal Palace.

Rangers fans feel that Mariappa could be a real bargain, and would be an astute addition. Here is the best reaction on social media site Twitter.

Mariappa has been unfortunate not to play more for Palace in recent times, with many of the Eagles supporters feeling that he did have a role to play.

The 29-year-old would be a high profile signing for Rangers, as they look to build a squad capable of competing in the Scottish Premiership.

Rangers have already made five signings this summer - bringing in Clint Hill, Jordon Rossiter, Joey Barton, Josh Windass and Matt Crooks.
