Rangers will bring Steven Taylor to Glasgow for talks over a move to Ibrox tomorrow, according to a Sky Sports journalist.

The defender, who was released by Newcastle at the end of this season, has a huge number of Premier League appearances under his belt, but only managed 7 last year as Newcastle were relegated.

The news was broken by Sky Sports' Keith Downie, who has contacts both north and south of the border and should be on the money.

It seems to fit the mould of more experienced, quality players that Mark Warburton has been targeting in this window, and he's not too old either at the age of 30, although there are some question marks over his fitness.

Perhaps not the dream centre-back we'd have picked, but we'll trust Mr Warburton on this one - he's gotten the best out of forgotten players many times before, and we'll see if he can do it again.
