Rangers Boss Steven Gerrard To Get Decision Over £4m Offer For Former Teammate After 3 June

Fenerbahce defender Martin Skrtel tops newly appointed Rangers manager Steven Gerrard’s transfer wishlist according to Daily Record.

The Sabah newspaper meanwhile, reported that the Scottish outfit have launched a £4 million bid for the Slovakia international.

A source close to Fenerbahce revealed to Turkish-Football that as things stand the club is keen on the offer but that Gerrard will not receive a decision until after 3 June.

The club will undergo a presidential election, the incumbent Aziz Yildirim will run against one of the most powerful businessmen in the country, Ali Koc.

It is unlikely that Koc would block the move if he does win the process as the club are under the financial strain of an inflated wage bill that both candidates have vowed to resolve.

Skrtel, 33, is on a salary of £4 million-per-season and has just 12 months remaining on his current deal.

The experienced defender would not receive the same wages at Rangers but is open to the prospect of working with his former Liverpool teammate.

Gerrard’s presence could swing the transfer for Rangers even though Skrtel would be paid less.

Skrtel and Gerrard established a close relationship, playing together from 2008 to 2015 at Liverpool.


The powerful defender made 320 appearances for Liverpool during his time at Anfield winning one piece of silverware, the 2011-12 League Cup.

The Slovakia international has yet to win any silverware at Fenerbahce, missing out on the Turkish Cup final last week after defeat to Akhisar.

The Yellow Canaries could lift the league title on Sunday but would require Galatasaray to lose and Basaksehir to drop points.
