Former Celtic right-back Mark Wilson has said that John Souttar will be a good signing for Steven Gerrard’s Ibrox club Glasgow Rangers, as quoted in The Scottish Sun.

Rangers are interested in signing Souttar from Scottish Premiership rivals Heart of Midlothian in the summer transfer window, according to The Daily Record.

The report has claimed that Hearts will look at least £3m for the 22-year-old central defender.

Wilson, who played for Rangers’ bitter Old Firm rivals Celtic from 2006 until 2012, believes that the Scotland international will be a good signing for Rangers.

The Scottish Sun quotes Wilson as saying: “I’ve got to say if John Souttar is offered to go to Rangers and Hearts accept it, I can’t see John Souttar having a problem.

“He’s wanting to stay in the international fold and playing European football and playing beside better players like he would at Rangers and under Steven Gerrard would improve him.

“So I don’t think for one minute that John Souttar would turn that move down if it got offered to him.”

Good signing for Rangers?

Souttar is a very good central defender who will be a good long-term signing for Rangers.

Rangers could do with a young and energetic centre-back who can learn and grow, and the 22-year-old does fit the criteria.

According to WhoScored, the Scotland international made 23 starts and one substitute appearance in the Scottish Premiership for Hearts this season, and also played twice in the Scottish League Cup and five times in the Scottish Cup.
