According to The Herald, Rangers are attempting to resurrect a deal to bring Motherwell winger Jake Hastie to Ibrox this summer.

The Gers have already secured one summer signing, as Kilmarnock winger Jordan Jones will arrive when his deal at Rugby Park expires at the end of the season.

Yet as Gerrard looks to close the gap to Celtic, Rangers need more reinforcements this summer, and another winger appears to be on the Ibrox radar.

 

The Glasgow Evening Times reported earlier this month that whilst Rangers want Motherwell winger Hastie, a deal had been abandoned having grown frustrated in their pursuits of getting the deal finalised.

However, The Herald now claim that Rangers are attempting to rekindle their move, and still hope to secure a deal to lure the young winger to Ibrox.

Atlanta United are also keen on Hastie, whose contract expires at the end of the season, but Rangers are now seemingly weighing up a renewed move to beat the competition.

Hastie, 20, has come up through the Motherwell ranks, and after spending the first half of the season on loan at Alloa Athletic, he has been in red-hot form having hit seven goals in 13 games for Stephen Robinson's side.

Strong and fast with a great left foot, Hastie looks set for a bright future – and Rangers will be hoping to secure his bargain signature having seemingly been given renewed hope of an agreement.
