New Rangers boss Pedro Caixinha has already been tipped to bring two other centre-backs to Ibrox this summer.
Rangers' Philippe Senderos looks set to leave Ibrox
It would be some surprise if Glasgow Rangers failed to sign at least one new centre-back this summer.
Philippe Senderos is almost certain to leave Ibrox at the end of his deal, while Clint Hill (also out of contract) and Rob Kiernan (much maligned this season) could follow.
Ipswich Town's Christophe Berra and Al Gharafa's Rashid Sumalia are two of the names mentioned as possible Rangers additions in that department, though Aberdeen's alleged pursuit of a different centre-back raises an interesting question.
According to the Scottish Sun, the Dons are keen on Hamilton captain Michael Devlin, whose absence was certainly felt against Rangers on Saturday.
Until his recent injury, Devlin was tipped as a possible Scotland call-up, following a stand-out campaign for the Lanarkshire side.

With Berra already 32 and Sumalia perhaps a risk due to his lack of Premiership experience, would 23-year-old Devlin, who's been a regular at that level for the past three campaigns, not be better signing for Rangers?
While the capture of either Berra or Sumalia would have economical benefits, given they are both out of contract this summer, Devlin's Hamilton deal has little over a year to run itself, so he wouldn't cost the earth.
Besides, any opportunity to stop Aberdeen from strengthening would be wise to explore for Rangers.
Would Devlin be a good signing for Glasgow Rangers?
