Heart of Midlothian midfielder Don Cowie has suggested to The Scottish Sun that Jamie Walker should not join Rangers in the summer transfer window.

According to The Scottish Sun, Rangers are interested in signing Walker from Scottish Premiership rivals Hearts this summer.

It has been reported that Rangers manager Pedro Caixinha has seen two bids rejected for the 23-year-old winger, whose current contract with Hearts runs out in June 2018.

Hearts midfielder Cowie has given his take on the future of Walker, suggesting that the former Scotland Under-21 international should remain at the Tynecastle Stadium.

“For three quarters of last season there weren’t many better than him in the country,” Cowie told The Scottish Sun about Walker.

“He was fantastic and it is only right that the club want what a player like that is worth and they have made a firm stance. But I don’t see why another season at Hearts can’t get him in the Scotland squad.

“It can only be helped by the fact Christophe Berra is here, an established part of the national side, maybe more people will watch him.”

Walker is a very good winger who has proved himself in the Scottish Premiership, and he would be a good signing for Rangers.

The Scotsman is 23 years of age, meaning that he is only going to get better and improve in the coming years.

Rangers finished third in the Scottish Premiership this past season and will be aiming to close the gap on Old Firm rivals Celtic during the 2017-18 campaign.
