Rangers are ready to offload Jack Simpson this summer after bringing in two new central defenders in John Souttar and Ben Davies.

The Gers landed Souttar on a pre-contract agreement with his Hearts deal coming to an end this summer.

Calvin Bassey was sold to Ajax in a big-money deal, and Rangers decided to sign two players to replace him.

Ridvan Yilmaz is in at left back whilst Ben Davies is Rangers’ new left-sided centre back.having completed a move from Liverpool.

Davies joins Souttar, Connor Goldson and Filip Helander as Rangers’ main centre back options, though Leon King and James Sands are options there too.

Rangers are ready to offload Jack Simpson

Rangers now need to axe some bodies and it looks like a couple of centre backs are available.

The Athletic claim that Nikola Katic is available for transfer whilst Jack Simpson has been told that he is free to leave Ibrox too.

Simpson, 25, signed a pre-contract agreement with Rangers back in January 2021 before Bournemouth agreed to sell.

A left-sided centre back, Simpson had long been on the radar of Steven Gerrard even going back to his first summer as Rangers boss.

You would have expected Simpson to play a key role for Rangers when he finally did join, given Gerrard’s chase of him for two-and-a-half years.

Yet Simpson played just 11 times under Gerrard and then only three more under Giovanni van Bronckhorst.

Simpson has looked a little shaky when he has featured for Rangers and Van Bronckhorst now seems ready to let him leave.

Simpson will likely have suitors in England with Championship clubs no doubt interested in the former Bournemouth man.

Rangers likely won’t receive much cash for Simpson if they do sell, but it’s now all about offloading players given Rangers’ bulky squad.

Simpson needs a fresh start after 18 frustrating months at Rangers and Van Bronckhorst is ready to make it happen.
