Here are three he could target...

Chris Brunt

The West Brom winger was on Rangers' books until the age of 16, but was released ahead of a successful career in England. Brunt signed for the Baggies from Sheffield Wednesday more than a decade ago, but could be on the move in 2018 having fallen down the Hawthorns pecking order and entered the final seven months of his contract. The Birmingham Mail previously reported that the 33-year-old still keeps an eye on Rangers' results, suggesting interest on his part.

Charlie Adam

Adam is both out of favour and soon to be out of contract himself, and would perhaps relish a return to Glasgow, where he has some unfinished business.

While Morrison may have been keen on a move to Celtic last year - as reported by the Daily Record - the West Brom midfielder admitted during a prior interview with the Daily Express that he would love to play for Rangers, having followed the Ibrox side since childhood. His Baggies deal expires at the same time as Brunt's.
