Rangers fans are reacting to fresh reports linking Jake Cooper with a move to Ibrox.

According to the Daily Express, the Rangers manager, Steven Gerrard, has made clear he wants the Millwall defender after sending Andy Scoulding, the Ibrox chief scout, to watch him.

 

The newspaper claims Rangers tried to sign Cooper back in August, and made a series of bids that went as high as £3 million.

But while the London club were able to keep hold of him then, it is suggested there is now concern they will lose the fight to keep the 23-year-old.

There is speculation, too, that Cooper's contract contains a release clause that kicks into effect if Millwall - who are 21st in the Championship - finish at the bottom end of England's second tier, which would appear to point towards a summer deal.

But what do those of a Rangers persuasion make of the rumour?
