Steven Gerrard's Glasgow Rangers are interested in signing bringing Curtis Tilt from Blackpool to Ibrox in the summer transfer window, according to The Scottish Sun.

It has been reported that Steven Gerrard’s Rangers are considering a move for Tilt should they fail to bring Jake Cooper from Millwall to Ibrox this summer.

Rangers have reportedly made a bid of £3 million for Cooper, and the Gers are claimed to be looking at 26-year-old Tilt as an alternative.

Competition for Rangers

According to The Scottish Sun, Blackpool want a transfer fee of £1 million in order to sell Tilt this summer.

It has also been reported that Rangers will face competition for the League One defender from Ipswich Town in the Championship in England, with the Tractor Boys claimed to have made a bid of £550,000 for the 6ft 3in defender.

According to the Mirror (Transfer Live blog, 13:54pm, Sunday, July 8, 2018), Queens Park Rangers and Reading are also interested in Tilt (click here to read more).

Good signing for Rangers?

Tilt is a good defender, and his stature will enable Rangers to have a physical presence at the back.

The left-footed central defender would be a bargain signing for £1m, although the Gers could find it tough to lure him to Ibrox given the number of clubs reportedly interested in him.
