According to The Scottish Sun, Milton Keynes Dons are aware of interest from Rangers in defender Lee Hodson, with Mark Warburton weighing up a move for the player.

The Gers have been busy in the transfer market this summer, adding Matt Gilks, Clint Hill, Joey Barton, Jordan Rossiter and Niko Kranjcar to their ranks, whilst Matt Crooks and Josh Windass have also arrived having penned pre-contract agreements with the club in January.

Rangers' deals have seen Gilks, Barton and Rossiter all reunite with recruitment chief Frank McParland, whilst manager Warburton has often targeted players he's worked with before, as seen with the signings of Rob Kiernan, Dominic Ball and Harry Forrester last season.

Now, another reunion could be on the cards, as The Scottish Sun report that Warburton is weighing up a move to land Milton Keynes Dons defender Lee Hodson.

Hodson, 24, worked with Warburton at both Watford and Brentford, and is believed to be under consideration as the Rangers boss searches for a player who can provide cover at both right back and left back.

The MK Dons ace is currently heading home from France having been at Euro 2016 with Northern Ireland, and his future should be resolved in the coming weeks having been allowed to leave MK Dons to join Kilmarnock on loan last season.

It's claimed that MK Dons are aware of Rangers' interest in signing Hodson, and with one year left on his contract, they could choose to cash in now rather than lose him for free next summer - and having made just eight appearances under Karl Robinson last year, he may well be allowed to reunite with Warburton at Ibrox.
