Glasgow Rangers have brought some good players to Ibrox, but Celtic signing Neven Subotic would eclipse their business.

Neven Subotic of Borussia Dortmund speaks to the media during a press conference at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu on December 5, 2017 in Madrid, Spain.

We're exactly three weeks into the January transfer window and even Celtic fans wouldn't deny that Rangers have done some pretty good business.

Well, they might, but the truth is that Rangers boss Graeme Murty has pulled off some very decent coups and the Gers should be a much better side as a result.

Sean Goss, Jason Cummings, Russell Martin and Jamie Murphy have all arrived at Ibrox on short-term loan deals, which could be become permanent in the summer depending on their performances and it's clear that they have been a bit more busy than Celtic this month.

Rangers are linked with other players, but even if they sign them, they couldn't possibly get a better deal if Celtic wind up getting Neven Subotic for £3 million.

According to German news outlet Fussballeck, Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers is interested in signing the Borussia Dortmund centre-back who, if he joins, would eclipse anything that Rangers have done or will do before the window shuts.

The 29-year-old is on the fringes of things at Dortmund this season, but he has been a brilliant defender in the Bundesliga down the years and played a big role in helping the German giants reach the Champions League final in 2013, starting 11 games.

He is available for around £3 million according to Transfermarkt, and if Celtic get him then it'd be a reminder as to how big the gap is between both Old Firm sides in terms of profile.
