Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has told Sky Sports that New Zealand international goalkeeper Stefan Marinovic has arrived for a trial spell with the club.

The Gers were in friendly action today, beating HJK Helsinki 3-2 in the game arranged as part of Alfredo Morelos's 2017 move to Ibrox from the Finnish club.

The game saw Jermain Defoe and Steven Davis make their debuts having arrived earlier this month, and more deals are expected at Ibrox yet.

 

For instance, Gerrard confirmed that trialist Matt Polster is set to sign a permanent deal from Chicago Fire, and another trialist has arrived in Glasgow.

Gerrard has confirmed that goalkeeper Stefan Marinovic is training with the club, with a week-long stay scheduled for now.

"It's planned for a week at the moment," said Gerrard, as he looks to Major League Soccer for another potential Rangers signing this month.

Marinovic, 27, featured for 1860 Munich II and Unterhaching in Germany before heading to Vancouver Whitecaps in 2017, whilst he has also picked up 24 caps for New Zealand.

The 6ft 3in stopper will now hope to do enough to follow Polster to Glasgow permanently, even though Rangers do already have Allan McGregor and Wes Foderingham in their ranks.
