Rangers are in talks with Josh Magennis's representatives over a summer move to Ibrox, The Belfast Telegraph reports.

Magennis - who plays alongside the Rangers trio Steven Davis, Jordan Jones and Kyle Lafferty for Northern Ireland - is said to be in limbo at his current employers, Bolton Wanderers.


And according to The Belfast Telegraph, Rangers may be able to land the striker for free in the summer window.


Bolton paid £400,000 to prise Magennis from Charlton Athletic a year ago, but the Welsh-born 28-year-old has only managed to score six goals in 45 games since then.

And it seems few Trotters fans would mind if Magennis left for Rangers - who are being warned against a move by some.

This is what they're saying on Twitter...







Magennis already has some experience of Scottish football, having played for Rangers' league rivals Aberdeen, Kilmarnock and St Mirren.

The former goalkeeper scored just 28 goals in 190 games in Scotland's top tier.

Is Magennis really that bad for Rangers?
