Rangers are reportedly keen on bringing Craig Bryson to Ibrox.

Derby County were beaten 2-0 at Leeds United on Friday night, losing as the 'Spygate' scandal surrounding Marcelo Bielsa broke.

Bielsa had sent a member of the Leeds staff to go and spy on Derby's training sessions, meaning there was added tension to Friday's meeting between the two sides.

Leeds were impressive again though, and grabbed a first half lead when Jack Clarke's cross was turned home by striker Kemar Roofe.

 

The Whites made it 2-0 straight after half time as Clarke was again involved, driving a cross in which wasn't dealt with by Scott Carson, and Jack Harrison tapped home from a cutback.

Leeds continue their push for promotion, but Derby are only two points inside the play-off places now after one win in the last five outings.

Frank Lampard may be looking to make the changes this month, and the Daily Record reported just days ago that Rangers are in talks about a deal to sign Derby midfielder Craig Bryson.

The 32-year-old has featured regularly under Lampard this season, but is out of contract at the end of the campaign and may fancy a move back to Scotland.

Rams fans seemingly wouldn't find that either, slating his performance on Friday by suggesting that it's time for him to go after eight years of service, adding that he is past it and a shadow of his former self, with some fans offering to take him to Glasgow to sign for Rangers if that's what it takes.
