Paul Robinson has suggested that former Arsenal and West Ham United midfielder Jack Wilshere would be a good signing for Rangers in the summer transfer window.
The former Tottenham Hotspur and England international midfielder believes that Rangers would be getting a very focused and hungry Wilshere.
The 28-year-old is a free agent at the moment, having had his contract with West Ham mutually terminated earlier this week.
According to Football Insider, Rangers are interested in securing the services of the England international on a free transfer.
Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has reportedly been in contract with the England international midfielder and is hopeful of agreeing a deal with him.
Robinson told Football Insider: “He obviously wants to go and play football and that’s quite refreshing to see. The fact he’s not just sat there picking up his wage and he’s said in his statement that he’s been fit for the last eight months and just not been utilised.
“He’s not wanted to rest on his laurels and pick up his wage packet so you’ve got to give him credit. Someone is always going to take Jack Wilshere, he’s a very good player.
“Yes, he has had his injury problems but you can see now just from his statement that he’s hungry. He’s obviously fit and wants to play.
“Whoever gets him will probably get a very, very focused very, very different Jack Wilshere to the one from six or seven years ago.”
Challenging Celtic for the title
Rangers are challenging bitter Old Firm rivals Celtic for the Scottish Premiership title this season.
The Hoops are aiming to make it 10 league titles in a row this season, and are rated at 5/4 by Betfair to do so.
However, Gerrard’s side are doing well at the moment, with the Ibrox club a point clear of Celtic at the top of the table, although Neil Lennon’s side have played a fewer game.
