Celtic supporting boss Steve Evans has told Kent Online that the Bhoys or Rangers will have to pay ‘millions’ for Jack Tucker, if they want to sign him from Gillingham.

The Scottish Sun claim that both Celtic and Rangers want the centre-back, who has been in impressive form in recent months.

Tucker has helped Gillingham go on a 15 game unbeaten streak, which has reportedly put him on the radar of both Rangers and Celtic.

 

But Evans insists that Tucker is worth a fortunes for the Gills now, after nearly leaving on a free.

“We found Jack Tucker who we were told was being released from the football club and we gave him a new chance – and he’ll go for millions,” Evans said.

If Evans got his way, he may want the centre-back to move Celtic over Rangers.

Evans is a huge Celtic fan, who has already told BBC Sport that he wants to manage the Bhoys.

If Tucker was to move to Parkhead he would be in competition with the likes of Christopher Jullien and Kristoffer Ajer for a first-team place.

At Rangers, on the other hand, Tucker would have Nikola Katic and Connor Goldson ahead of him in the pecking order.
