Report: Lee Hodson could leave Rangers today for Montreal Impact

A general view of Ibrox Stadium is seen ahead of the EURO 2016 Qualifier match between Scotland and Georgia at Ibrox Stadium on October 11, 2014 in Glasgow, Scotland.

MLS outfit Montreal Impact could reportedly offer Northern Ireland international Lee Hodson a way out of Scottish Premiership employers Rangers.

Rangers squad has been transformed over the summer with Steven Gerrard bringing in 11 new additions while shoving some of the club’s fringe players unceremoniously towards the exit.

The likes of Fabio Cardoso, Bruno Alves, Michael O’Halloran, Jason Holt and Greg Docherty have all departed Ibrox and it seems that another seldom-seen player is set to join them.

 

Lee Hodson has barely featured for Rangers over the last two seasons, though he has not been helped by the terrific form of James Tavernier, who has now been handed the captain’s armband by the former Liverpool skipper.

The Northern Ireland international hasn’t featured in any of Gerrard’s five competitive games in charge. And reports from the Belfast Telegraph suggest that he could be on his way out on Wednesday.

It is claimed that Major League Soccer outfit Montreal Impact are interested in signing Hodson, who has been told by Gerrard that he is surplus to requirements. But the Canadian outfit will have to get their skates on as the MLS transfer window shuts on Wednesday.

If the deal was to happen, Hodson would be the second Rangers player to make the trip across the Atlantic this year after Danny Wilson joined Colorado Rapids in January.
