Rangers linked with move for Watford defender - reports

Rangers are linked with a move for Juan Carlos Paredes, which makes absolutely no sense at all.

Rangers have secured their January transfer window targets already, according to David Weir, although he says one other player could be coming in - probably on loan.

Which means that today's latest link, to Watford's Juan Carlos Paredes, makes pretty much no sense at all. A few teams are reported to be interested, with Rangers one of them according to the Daily Record. But there's a few reasons why it's hard to see this getting off the ground.

Firstly, Paredes is a right-back, a position where we already have Lee Hodson in form, and James Tavernier out of it. Hardly a priority for upgrading compared to our lack of depth in defence and defensive midfield.

Secondly, the same article states that Watford are apparently looking for £2m - a figure we're unlikely to spend on anyone, least of all a 29 year-old right-back.

It's hard to see where this has come from but we'd be very surprised if there were any further developments on this one.
