Philippe Senderos is reportedly a target for Rangers.

Reports from The Times earlier today claimed that Rangers have offered a one-year deal to former Arsenal defender Philippe Senderos.

The Gers have been wanting defensive reinforcements all summer, and whilst Clint Hill did sign earlier this summer, his struggles against Burnley last weekend have again highlighted that manager Mark Warburton still needs to bring in another centre-back.

Given that Rob Kiernan and Danny Wilson showed their inexperience on occasions last season, fans have wanted to see a veteran defender arrive at Ibrox - and manager Warburton appears to have targeted one.

The Times reported earlier today that Rangers have offered a one-year contract to defender Philippe Senderos, who is available after his six-month contract with Grasshopper Zurich expired earlier this summer.

Senderos, 31, is best known for having made 131 appearances for Arsenal, where he won the FA Cup, whilst he has also had spells with AC Milan, Everton, Fulham, Valencia and Aston Villa.

A Swiss international who represented his country at three World Cups, Senderos has bags of experience, which just what Rangers need - but fans appear split on the prospect of him signing for the club.

Supporters have taken to Twitter today in order to offer their views on Senderos, with many suggesting that he would be the big, physical presence Rangers need in the heart of defence, and will trust Warburton's judgement on any signings.

However, others would prefer to see Dominic Ball return to Ibrox from Spurs, and think Senderos simply isn't good enough or quick enough, comparing him to Celtic's error-prone defender Efe Ambrose.
